ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 919, Department of the Interior Tribal Self-Governance Act of 2014   [open pdf - 87KB]

This is a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) cost estimate for S. 919. "S. 919 would amend certain provisions of the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act related to the Tribal Self-Governance Program. That program authorizes Indian tribes to assume responsibility for certain programs, functions, and services or activities that would otherwise be carried out by the federal government. The bill would amend how contracts are negotiated between the tribes and the Department of the Interior (DOI) and would establish new guidelines for administering the program. Based on information provided by DOI, CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would have no significant effect on the federal budget over the 2015-2019 period. Enacting S. 919 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply."
