As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on November 19, 2014
H.R. 5699 would expand and adjust the boundary of the John Muir National Historic Site in California to include approximately 44 acres of donated land. The bill would require that the land be donated voluntarily by the Muir Heritage Land Trust and that it be administered as part of the historic site.
Based on information provided by the National Park Service (NPS), CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 5699 would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Under the legislation, the additional acres could only be acquired through donation. Based on information from the NPS, we estimate that annual costs to operate and maintain the new properties would be minimal. Enacting H.R. 5699 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 5699 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
