As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on July 31, 2013
H.R. 2650 would authorize the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa in the state of Minnesota to lease, sell, or transfer any property that is owned by the tribe but not held in trust by the federal government for the tribe’s benefit. Based on information provided by the Department of the Interior, CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would have no impact on the federal budget because the legislation would not affect tribal trust lands. Enacting H.R. 2650 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 2650 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
