As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works on February 6, 2014
S. 51 would authorize appropriations totaling $25 million a year over the 2014-2019 period to support the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. The foundation is a nonprofit corporation established by federal law to provide grants for activities related to conserving and managing fish, wildlife, plants, and other natural resources. Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would cost $137 million over the 2014-2019 period.
Because enacting S. 51 would not affect direct spending or revenues, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
S. 51 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
