Congressional Budget Office report[edit]

This summary is based largely on the summary provided by the Congressional Budget Office, a public domain source.[2]

H.R. 1300 would authorize the appropriation of $6 million over the 2015-2017 period for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to carry out volunteer programs and community partnerships at national wildlife refuges. Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that implementing the legislation would cost $6 million over the 2015-2017 period.[2] Enacting H.R. 1300 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.[2]

Procedural history[edit]

H.R. 1300 was introduced into the House on March 20, 2013 by Rep. Jon Runyan (R-NJ).[3] It was referred to the United States House Committee on Natural Resources and the United States House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular Affairs.[3] Subcommittee hearings were held on April 25, 2013. The bill was reported (amended) on June 17, 2013 alongside House Report 113-112.[3] On Friday, July 19, 2013, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced that H.R. 1300 would be on the schedule for Monday, July 22, 2013.[4][5] H.R. 1300 was considered under a suspension of the rules.[6]
