S. 684, Mni Wiconi Project Act Amendments of 2013

Cost Estimate
July 11, 2013

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on May 16, 2013

S. 684 would authorize the Secretary of the Interior, acting through the Bureau of Reclamation, to develop plans to complete the Oglala Sioux Rural Water Supply System, the Rosebud Sioux Rural Water Supply System, and the Lower Brule Sioux Rural Water Supply System in southwestern South Dakota. The bill also would authorize the bureau to enter into agreements with other federal agencies to complete those projects. Based on information from the Bureau of Reclamation, and assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO estimates that implementing S. 684 would cost $29 million over the 2014-2018 period and an additional $62 million after 2018.

Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.

S. 684 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
