As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on October 30, 2013
S. 920 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 S. 920 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
S. 920 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
On August 22, 2013, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for H.R. 2650, the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Nonintercourse Act of 2013, as ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on July 31, 2013. The two bills are similar, and the CBO cost estimates are the same.
