S. 3193, the Barona Band of Mission Indians Land Transfer Clarification Act of 2012

Cost Estimate
December 17, 2012

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on December 5, 2012

S. 3193 would amend the legal description of lands taken into federal trust for the benefit of the Barona Band of Mission Indians in California. The amendment would exclude private property that was originally included when the lands were taken into trust under the Native American Technical Corrections Act of 2004. Based on information provided by the Department of the Interior, CBO estimates that the act would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Enacting S. 3193 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

S. 3193 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.

On July 13, 2012, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for S. 3193, the Barona Band of Mission Indians Land Transfer Clarification Act of 2012, as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on June 28, 2012. The two pieces of legislation are nearly identical, and the estimated costs are the same.
