Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 753, A Bill to Provide for National Security Benefits for White Sands Missile Range and Fort Bliss   [open pdf - 20KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on November 14, 2013. From the Document: "S. 753 would require the Secretary of the Interior to withdraw roughly 43,000 acres of federal land in New Mexico from the operation of certain public land laws, including laws that authorize mineral development and grazing on such lands. Those lands would be used by the Army for military purposes. The bill also would require the Secretary of the Army to transfer administrative jurisdiction over about 2,000 acres of land in the same area to the Department of the Interior. Based on information provided by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Enacting S. 753 would reduce offsetting receipts, which are treated as reductions in direct spending; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that any net reduction in offsetting receipts would be negligible."
