As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on June 28, 2012
H.R. 443 would convey three Indian Health Service (IHS) properties in Kotzebue, Alaska, to the Maniilaq Association, a tribal nonprofit organization. Based on information from the IHS, CBO estimates that the conveyances would have no significant impact on the federal budget. According to the agency, it does not currently receive any lease payments or other receipts from the properties. Enacting H.R. 443 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 443 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
On October 25, 2011, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for H.R. 443 as ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on October 5, 2011. The two versions of the legislation are similar and the CBO cost estimates are the same.
