S. 818 would authorize the Secretary of the Interior to take into trust certain real property located within the boundaries of the original reservation of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon. The bill would modify the process that the Secretary uses to evaluate such property and specify that any lands taken into trust on behalf of that tribe after September 9, 1988, would be considered part of its reservation.
Based on information from the Department of the Interior, CBO estimates that implementing S. 818 would have no significant effect on the federal budget. We estimate that any change in the department’s administrative costs under the bill, which would be subject to appropriation, would not exceed $500,000 in any year.
Enacting S. 818 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates that enacting S. 818 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2026.
S. 818 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.
