U.S. Congress, Congressional Budget Office, Washington, DC, April 12, 2000. Hon. Bud Shuster, Chairman, Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, U.S. House of Representatives, Washington, DC. Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has reviewed the following bills, which were ordered reportedly by the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure on April 11, 2000. CBO estimates that their enactment would have no significant impact on the federal budget, and would not affect direct spending or receipts; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures would not apply. The legislation 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 bills reviewed are:
H.R. 1405, a bill to designate the federal building located at 143 West Liberty Street, Medina, Ohio, as the ``Donald J. Pease Federal Building;'' H.R. 1571, a bill to designate the federal building under construction at 600 State Street in New Haven, Connecticut, as the ``Merrill S. Parks, Jr., Federal Building;'' H.R. 1729, a bill to designate the federal facility located at 1301 Emmet Street in Charlottesville, Virginia, as the ``Pamela B. Gwin Hall;'' and H.R. 1901, a bill to designate the United States border station located in Pharr, Texas, as the ``Kika de la Garza United States Border Station.'' If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is John R. Righter. Sincerely, Steven M. Lieberman (For Dan L. Crippen, Director).
