S. 59, Distinguished Flying Cross National Memorial Act

Cost Estimate
May 31, 2013

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on May 16, 2013

S. 59 would designate a memorial to members of the Armed Forces who have distinguished themselves in flight. The memorial, which would be located at the March Field Air Museum in Riverside, California, would not be a unit of the National Park System.

Based on information provided by the National Park Service, CBO estimates that implementing S. 59 would have no effect on discretionary spending because the proposed memorial would not be constructed or operated with federal funds. Enacting the legislation would not affect revenues or direct spending; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

S. 59 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 May 2, 2013, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for H.R. 330, the Distinguished Flying Cross National Memorial Act, as ordered to be reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on April 24, 2013. The two bills are similar, and the CBO cost estimates are the same.
