S. 2564 would authorize appropriations for grants to construct, operate, and maintain facilities at Diné College. Although the underlying authorization of appropriations for grants for Diné College expired in 2014, the Congress appropriated $14 million to defray the cost of operations and maintenance for academic year 2015-2016. The bill also would require the Secretary of the Interior to conduct a study of the capital projects and facility needs of the college.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 2564 would cost $64 million over the 2017-2021 period, assuming the appropriation of the specified and estimated amounts. Enacting S. 2564 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 2564 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2027.
S. 2564 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
