H.R. 1319 would direct the Departments of Agriculture and the Interior, within 18 months of enactment, to identify at least 10 existing bicycle trails on federal land that are at least 80 miles long and 10 more potential such trails that could be developed. The bill would allow the agencies to distribute maps, install signs, and issue promotional materials highlighting those trails. H.R. 1319 also would require them to invite public comment on the proposed trails, publish a summary of those comments within two years of enactment.
Using information from the agencies, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 1319 would cost $1 million over the 2023-2028 period for administrative costs and distribution of promotional materials; any spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds.
