As ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on April 25, 2012
H.R. 2467 would authorize the transfer of 39 acres of federal land into trust for the benefit of the Bridgeport Paiute Indian Colony of California. The land consists of a 32-acre parcel adjacent to the existing 40-acre reservation and a 7.5-acre parcel currently under lease by the Toiyabe Indian Health Project (TIHP), a consortium of seven federally recognized tribes, including the Bridgeport Paiute Indian Colony of California.
Based on information provided by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), CBO estimates that any administrative costs to carry out the bill’s provisions would be minimal. (Any such costs would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds.) Enacting H.R. 2467 would have an insignificant effect on direct spending; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Under current law, BLM collects $1,500 annually under a Recreation and Public Purposes Act lease with the TIHP. Under the bill, those receipts would no longer be collected.
H.R. 2467 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act. Enacting the bill would benefit the tribe.
