As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on April 24, 2013
H.R. 993 would direct the Secretary of Agriculture to convey, without consideration, certain lands in Utah to the town of Fruit Heights City. Based on information from the Forest Service, CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Enacting H.R. 993 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
Under the bill, the Secretary would be required to convey about 100 acres of land within the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest to Fruit Heights City, Utah. The conveyed land could be used by the town for public purposes only and would revert to the federal government if used for other purposes. The affected lands do not currently generate offsetting receipts for the federal government and are not expected to generate such receipts over the next 10 years. Any costs to survey the affected lands would be paid by the town.
H.R. 993 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.
