Cost Estimate


As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on June 7, 2012

H.R. 4073 would authorize the Secretary of Agriculture to accept the relinquishment of certain lands located in El Paso County, Colorado, from the Manitou and Pikes Peak Railway Company. Those lands consist of less than 1 mile of abandoned railroad bed currently used as a hiking trail. Based on information provided by the Forest Service, CBO estimates that any additional costs to administer the affected lands would be minimal. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 4073 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.
