H.R. 3210, RELIEF Act

Cost Estimate

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

CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3210 would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Enacting the legislation could reduce revenues from civil penalties collected under the Lacey Act (a law that prohibits trade in wildlife, fish, and plants that have been illegally taken, possessed, transported, or sold); thus, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that any such reduction would be minimal. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending.
