H.R. 5317 would repeal a law enacted in 1834 that prohibits the establishment of a distillery on Indian lands. Using information from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, CBO expects there would be minimal administrative costs associated with implementing the act.
Enacting H.R. 5317 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 5317 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 5317 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
On May 22, 2018, CBO transmitted an estimate of H.R. 5317, a bill to repeal section 2141 of the Revised Statutes to remove the prohibition on certain alcohol manufacturing on Indian lands, as ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on May 8, 2018. The two versions of H.R. 5317 are similar and CBO’s estimates of their budgetary effects are the same.
