H.R. 3806, Great Smoky Mountains National Park Agreement Act of 2014

Cost Estimate
July 23, 2014

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on July 16, 2014

H.R. 3806 would direct the National Park Service (NPS) to transfer $4 million from previously appropriated funds to Swain County, North Carolina. The legislation would direct $4 million in unobligated funds, previously appropriated in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74) for NPS construction, to be used for the transfer. Based on information provided by NPS, CBO expects that those funds would not be obligated and expended under current law. As a result, CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 3806 would increase direct spending by $4 million in 2015; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Enacting H.R. 3806 would not affect revenues.

H.R. 3806 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would benefit Swain County, North Carolina.
