The bill would approve the transfer of administrative jurisdiction of about 29 acres of the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands from the Forest Service to the National Park Service (NPS).

It was introduced into the 113th United States Congress.

Provisions of the bill

This summary is based largely on the summary provided by the Congressional Research Service, a public domain source.

The Minuteman Missile National Historic Site Boundary Modification Act would amend the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site Establishment Act of 1999 to modify the boundary of the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site in South Dakota by including in the Historic Site a visitor facility and administrative site located on a specified parcel of land that consists of: (1) approximately 25 acres of land within the Buffalo Gap National Grassland in Jackson County, South Dakota, and (2) approximately 3.65 acres of land at the Delta 1 Launch Control Facility for the construction and use of a parking lot and for other administrative uses. The bill would also transfer administrative jurisdiction over such land from the United States Secretary of Agriculture (USDA) to the United States Secretary of the Interior. Finally, it would modify the boundary of the Buffalo Gap National Grassland to exclude the transferred land.

Congressional Budget Office report

This summary is based largely on the summary provided by the Congressional Budget Office, a public domain source, as ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on July 24, 2013.

S. 459 would approve the transfer of administrative jurisdiction of about 29 acres of the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands from the Forest Service to the National Park Service (NPS). The NPS would use the land for a visitor center, administrative site, and parking lot for the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site in South Dakota.

Based on information provided by the NPS, CBO estimates that implementing S. 459 would have no significant effect on the federal budget. Authority to transfer the land and to build and operate a facility was provided in the legislation that established the park unit in 1999. At that time, CBO estimated that the cost of constructing the facility would be about $5 million. That amount has already been appropriated for the project. Enacting S. 459 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

S. 459 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.

On March 25, 2013, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for S. 459, the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site Boundary Modification Act, as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on March 14, 2013. The two versions of the legislation are identical, and the CBO cost estimates are the same.
