S. 641 would authorize the National Park Service (NPS) to acquire, by donation, approximately 160 acres of land to add to the Yucca House National Monument.
Using information from the NPS, CBO anticipates that the agency would accept the donated land and process the transfer in 2021. CBO estimates that the cost to process the real estate transaction and perform environmental inspections would not be significant; any spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds.
On October 8, 2019, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for H.R. 1492, the Yucca House National Monument Boundary Revision Act, as ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on September 25, 2019. S. 641 is similar to H.R. 1492 and CBO’s estimated costs are the same for both pieces of legislation.
