As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on October 30, 2013
H.R. 298 would direct the Secretary of the Interior to conduct a study of the Mill Springs Battlefield in Kentucky to evaluate the national significance of the site and to determine the feasibility of designating the site as a unit of the National Park System. Based on information provided by the National Park Service and assuming the availability of appropriated funds, CBO estimates that conducting the study would cost about $250,000 over the next three years. Enacting H.R. 298 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 298 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
