As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on October 30, 2013
H.R. 1846 would expand the boundaries of the Lower East Side Tenement National Historic Site in New York City, New York. The current site is located at 97 Orchard Street, and the legislation would add 103 Orchard Street to the site. Established in 1998, the Lower East Side Tenement National Historic Site is owned and operated by the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, a nonprofit organization authorized to receive technical and financial assistance from the National Park Service (NPS). In recent years, NPS has provided about $250,000 annually in assistance to the museum. Based on information provided by NPS, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 1846 would not significantly increase that assistance and would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Enacting H.R. 1846 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 1846 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.
