Omnibus Public Lands Bill

In a Feb 6, 2009 letter, the Congressional Budget Office provided an analysis of the Omnibus Public Lands Management Act of 2009 as passed by the Senate on Jan 15, 2009.

According to CBO estimates, the legislation would have no effect on revenues or direct spending under terms of the “pay-as-you-go” budget resolution.

Key words are: revenue, direct spending, and appropriations.
