H.R. 4069 would amend the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to allow Alaska Natives to make and sell traditional handicrafts such as masks, jewelry, clothing, and hunting equipment that are made from parts of migratory birds, particularly feathers. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have no significant effect on the federal budget.
Enacting H.R. 4069 could reduce revenues and associated direct spending from civil and criminal penalties; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that any such effects would be negligible.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 4069 would not increase net direct spending or significantly increase on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 4069 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
