As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on June 12, 2013
H.R. 1411 would expand the boundary of the California Coastal National Monument to include 1,255 acres of federal land known as the Point Arena-Stornetta public lands; the new land is currently managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The bill would require BLM to manage that land as part of the National Landscape Conservation System.
Based on information provided by BLM, CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would have no significant impact on the federal budget. BLM currently has a management plan for the Point Arena-Stornetta public lands, and that plan would not be altered under the bill. Thus, CBO expects that implementing the legislation would not significantly affect BLM’s operating costs. Enacting H.R. 1411 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 1411 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.
