S. 130, Powell Shooting Range Land Conveyance Act

Cost Estimate
April 1, 2013

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on March 14, 2013

S. 130 would require the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to convey 322 acres of federal land near Powell, Wyoming, to the Powell Recreation District. Based on information provided by BLM, CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Enacting S. 130 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

The bill would require BLM to convey the affected lands, without consideration, to the Powell Recreation District, which currently operates a shooting range on those lands. Because the bill requires the district to pay all administrative costs associated with the conveyance, CBO estimates that implementing S. 130 would have no significant impact on discretionary spending. In addition, the affected lands are not expected to generate receipts over the next 10 years under current law.

S. 130 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
