As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on November 13, 2014
H.R. 885 would expand the boundary of the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park in Texas to include 137 additional acres. Of the proposed expansion, more than 100 acres are currently owned by the National Park Service (NPS) or are being donated to the park. Some of the other acres would continue to be managed under a cooperative agreement with the city of San Antonio and Bexar County, which own the property; the remainder would continue to be managed by Bexar County.
Based on information from the NPS, CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 885 would have no significant effect on the federal budget. The NPS currently manages most of the land that would be added to the park, and CBO estimates that the legislation would not significantly affect operating costs. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 885 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.
On May 2, 2013, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for H.R. 885, as ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on April 24, 2013. The two versions of the legislation and CBO’s cost estimates are the same.
