H.R. 1388 would take into trust, for the benefit of the Lytton Rancheria of California, a federally recognized Indian tribe, certain land located in the county of Sonoma, California. The act would specify certain prohibitions on gaming on the affected land, consistent with an existing memorandum of understanding between the tribe and the county.
Using information from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 1388 would have no significant effect on the federal budget. CBO estimates that any change in the agency’s administrative costs under the act, which would be subject to appropriation, would not exceed $500,000.
H.R. 1388 would impose an intergovernmental mandate as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) by prohibiting state and local governments from taxing land taken into trust for the Lytton Rancheria. CBO estimates the costs of the mandate would be well below the threshold established in UMRA ($82 million in 2019, adjusted annually for inflation).
The act contains no private-sector mandates as defined in UMRA.
