H.R. 253, Y Mountain Access Enhancement Act

Cost Estimate
May 6, 2013

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on April 24, 2013

H.R. 253 would require the Secretary of Agriculture to sell, for fair market value, about 80 acres of federal land located in Utah to Brigham Young University. Based on information about the value of similar lands in northern Utah, CBO estimates that enacting the legislation would increase offsetting receipts (a credit against direct spending) by less than $500,000 in 2014; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Because the bill would require the university to cover any administrative costs associated with the conveyance, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would not affect discretionary spending. Enacting H.R. 253 would not affect revenues.

H.R. 253 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.
