S. 2143, a bill to provide for the authority for the successors and assigns of the Starr-Camargo Bridge Company to maintain and operate a toll bridge across the Rio Grande near Rio Grande City, Texas, and for other purposes
As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works on January 20, 2016
Under current law, the Starr-Camargo Bridge Company has the authority to operate a private toll-bridge between the United States and Mexico through 2032. S. 2143 would permanently extend the authority for the Starr-Camargo Bridge Company or its successors to operate such a bridge and to expand the number of lanes on that bridge.
The Starr-Camargo Bridge Company is privately-owned and does not receive any federal or state assistance and does not issue any tax-exempt debt. As a result, CBO estimates that enacting S. 2143 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 2143 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year period beginning in 2027.
The bill 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.
