H.R. 752, the Molalla River Wild and Scenic Rivers Act

December 14, 2012
Cost Estimate


As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on December 5, 2012

H.R. 752 would designate two segments of the Molalla River in Oregon as a recreational river within the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. Based on information provided by the Bureau of Land Management, which administers the river segments that would be affected by the proposed designation, implementing the bill would have no effect on the federal budget. The affected segments, which total about 21 miles, are already protected for wilderness values, and the proposed designation would not significantly affect the way they are administered. Enacting H.R. 752 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 752 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
