H.R. 1177 would remove a deed restriction from certain lands previously conveyed to the city of Old Town, Maine. Under current law, the affected lands can only be used for public purposes. The bill would allow the city to dispose of some of the affected lands to allow for the development of private businesses.
Based on information provided by the Forest Service, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 1177 would have no effect on the federal budget. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO also estimates that enacting the legislation would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 1177 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.
