S. 224, San Francisco Bay Restoration Act

Cost Estimate
April 10, 2014

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works on April 3, 2014

S. 224 would authorize the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide grants to state, local, and nonprofit agencies to fund ecosystem restoration projects and habitat improvement in the San Francisco Estuary in California. The bill would authorize the appropriation of $5 million for each of fiscal years 2015 through 2017. Assuming appropriation of those amounts, CBO estimates that implementing S. 224 would cost $15 million over the 2015-2019 period.

Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues.

S. 224 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
