H.R. 132 would authorize the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) to convey certain federal properties to the Arbuckle Master Conservancy District in Oklahoma for no consideration. Under current law, BOR is authorized to transfer ownership of pipelines and similar facilities associated with the Arbuckle project that are used to deliver water to users. In 2012, BOR transferred the conveyance facilities of the Arbuckle project to the district. At that time, the district expressed interest in receiving title to additional properties, including the Arbuckle maintenance complex and the district office building. H.R. 132 would authorize BOR to transfer those properties to the district.
Using information from BOR, CBO estimates that enacting the legislation would have no significant effect on the federal budget. The properties that would be transferred generate no income for the government and are not expected to be sold in the next several years.
Enacting H.R. 132 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 132 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 132 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
