H.R. 5319, Nashua River Wild and Scenic River Study Act

Cost Estimate
August 9, 2012

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on August 1, 2012

H.R. 5319 would require the National Park Service (NPS) to study segments of the Nashua River in Massachusetts and New Hampshire for potential addition to the Wild and Scenic Rivers System. Based on information provided by the NPS, CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would cost about $300,000 over the next three years, assuming availability of appropriated funds. Enacting H.R. 5319 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 5319 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.
