H.R. 6666, a bill to authorize the Secretary of the Interior to grant to States and local government easements and rights-of-way over Federal land within Gateway National Recreation Area for construction, operation, and maintenance of projects for control
As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on September 26, 2018
H.R. 6666 would authorize the Secretary of the Interior to issue easements or rights-of-way over federal land within the Gateway National Recreation Area to state and local governments for the construction, operation and maintenance of projects necessary to prevent flooding and shoreline erosion. Additionally, the bill would allow the National Park Service (NPS) to accept reimbursements for the costs of processing applications for easements and rights-of-way.
Using information from the NPS, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 6666 would increase costs for issuing rights-of-way permits and offsetting collections, which are treated as reductions in discretionary spending, leading to an insignificant net cost over the 2019-2023 period.
Enacting H.R. 6666 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 6666 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 6666 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
