As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on July 24, 2013
S. 304 would require the National Park Service (NPS) to convey about 67 acres of property in the Nachez Trace Parkway to the state of Mississippi. The legislation also would adjust the boundaries of the parkway to include 10 additional acres. Based on information provided by NPS, CBO estimates that implementing the act would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Enacting S. 304 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
S. 304 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
On March 27, 2013, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for S. 304, the Natchez Trace Parkway Land Conveyance Act of 2013, as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on March 14, 2013. The two versions of the legislation are identical, and the CBO cost estimates are the same.
