H.R. 5040 would direct the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to study how drone incursions affect the suppression of wildfires on federal land. The agency would be required to submit that study and any recommendations to the Congress.
Based on the costs of similar tasks, CBO estimates that any costs incurred by BLM to implement H.R. 5040 would be insignificant over the 2021-2025 period; any spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds.
