As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on January 30, 2008 S. 1802 would authorize the Secretary of Agriculture to sell up to 20 acres of Forest Service land in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho.
Any costs associated with the sale of the land would be paid by a private buyer, and the Forest Service would be authorized to spend any proceeds to purchase other property in Idaho. Therefore, enacting S. 1802 would have no net effect on direct spending. The legislation would not affect revenues.
S. 1802 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
The CBO staff contact for this estimate is Tyler Kruzich. This estimate was approved by Theresa Gullo, Deputy Assistant Director for Budget Analysis.
