As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on May 15, 2013
H.R. 910 would reauthorize the Sikes Act through 2019. That act requires the Department of Defense and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to develop and implement plans to manage natural resources on certain military lands. For those activities, the bill would authorize the appropriation of up to $4.5 million a year for 2015 through 2019. Under current law, that amount is authorized to be appropriated through 2014.
Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 910 would cost $18 million over the 2015-2018 period and $4.5 million after 2018. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 910 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.
