As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on July 30, 2014
S. 2479 would authorize the conveyance of about 26,000 acres of federal land in the state of Nevada to the Moapa Band of Paiutes. Based on information provided by the Department of the Interior, CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would have no significant effect on the federal budget. Enacting S. 2479 would affect direct spending because the affected lands are expected to generate offsetting receipts for the federal government from leasing the lands’ right-of-way; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, the reduction in offsetting receipts in each year and over the 2015-2024 period would be insignificant. Enacting S. 2479 would not affect revenues.
S. 2479 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
