CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK
On Monday, September 15, 2014, the House will consider H.R. 3006, a bill to authorize a land exchange involving the acquisition of private land adjacent to the Cibola National Wildlife Refuge in Arizona for inclusion in the refuge in exchange for certain Bureau of Land Management lands in Riverside County, California, and for other purposes. H.R. 3006 was introduced on August 2, 2013 by Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA) and was referred to the House Natural Resources Committee. The bill was marked up on July 30, 2014 and was ordered reported, as amended, by unanimous consent.
H.R. 3006 authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to convey to River Bottom Farms of La Paz County, Arizona 80 acres of federal land located in California. In exchange, River Bottom Farms will convey to the federal government 40 acres of private land located in Arizona that are contiguous to the Cibola National Wildlife Refuge. The land will become part of the Cibola National Wildlife Refuge.
According to CBO estimates, implementing H.R. 3006 would increase offsetting receipts, which are treated as reductions in direct spending. The bill would not affect revenues.
