H.R. 4867, Economic Development Through Tribal Land Exchange Act

Cost Estimate
August 20, 2014

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on July 30, 2014

H.R. 4867 would authorize the exchange of interests in lands between the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, a private land owner, and the city of Banning, California. Because the tribal lands are held in trust by the federal government for the benefit of the tribe, the tribe needs Congressional authorization to enter into the land exchange. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have no significant effect on the federal budget. Enacting H.R. 4867 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 4687 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
