H.R. 1157, a bill to clarify the United States interest in certain submerged lands in the area of the Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge, and for other purposes

H.R. 1157 would express a finding by the Congress regarding the location of the western boundary of the Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge in Massachusetts. Although the bill would not change current law, enacting the bill could cause the agency to change its determination of the refuge’s boundary, which would reduce the size of the refuge by about 3,000 acres. However, using information provided by the agency, CBO estimates that any such change would have a minimal effect on the cost of administering the refuge.

Enacting H.R. 1157 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 1157 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.

H.R. 1157 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
