As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on March 13, 2014
H.R. 1501 would require the National Park Service (NPS) to conduct a study of the Prison Ship Martyrs’ Monument in New York City to determine the suitability and feasibility of designating the monument as a unit of the National Park System. Based on information provided by the NPS and assuming the availability of appropriated funds, CBO estimates that carrying out the study required by H.R. 1501 would cost about $150,000. Enacting H.R. 1501 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 1501 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.
