As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on July 30, 2014
H.R. 5203 would terminate the appointments of the current members of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission and terminate the employment of the Executive Director and staff of the Commission. The President, the Speaker of the House, and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate would appoint new members of the Commission. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have no significant effect on the federal budget. Enacting H.R. 5203 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 5203 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.
On July 11, 2013, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for H.R. 1126, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Completion Act, as ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on June 12, 2013. H.R. 5203 is similar to provisions in H.R. 1126 regarding the commission’s membership and staff. However, H.R. 1126 also would direct the commission to select an alternative design. The CBO cost estimates reflect that difference.
