Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 1471, Safeguard Tribal Objects of Patrimony Act of 2021 [open pdf - 168KB]
This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on May 26, 2021. From the Document: "S. 1471 would make it a federal crime to export Native American cultural items, archaeological resources, and objects of antiquity without proper authorization and would require exporters to obtain an export certification. Federal agencies would need to convene working groups to reduce trafficking and encourage repatriation of cultural heritage items. The bill also would direct the Department of the Interior (DOI) and the Department of State to designate liaisons to facilitate voluntary returns of unlawfully acquired items. Those agencies would provide training to tribal organizations, collectors, and dealers concerning the new prohibitions."
