S. 285, Valles Caldera National Preserve Management Act

Cost Estimate
July 12, 2013

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on June 18, 2013

S. 285 would transfer administrative jurisdiction of the Valles Caldera Preserve in New Mexico from the Forest Service to the National Park Service (NPS). Assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO estimates that implementing S. 285 would cost $27 million over the 2014-2018 period. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

S. 285 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.
