S. 785 would provide certain Alaska Native veterans or their heirs the opportunity to apply for allotments of land in Alaska. CBO estimates that implementing S. 785 would cost $11 million over the 2019-2023 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts.
Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates that enacting S. 785 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
S. 785 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
