Cost Estimate
May 10, 2012

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on April 25, 2012

H.R. 1237 would require the Secretary of Agriculture to exchange 100 acres of federal land in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest for about 200 acres of land owned by the Trinity Public Utilities District. Of the lands received in the exchange, the Forest Service would administer 150 acres, and the Bureau of Land Management would administer 47 acres.

Based on information provided by the affected agencies, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have no impact on discretionary spending. Any administrative costs related to the exchange would be paid by the Trinity Public Utilities District. Enacting H.R. 1237 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 1237 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments. Enacting this bill would benefit the Trinity Public Utilities District in California; any costs to the district would be incurred voluntarily.
