H.R. 3616 would direct the National Park Service (NPS) to assess the suitability and feasibility of designating areas in Utah and Idaho as the Bear River National Heritage Area. Under the act, the NPS would conduct a study in consultation with state, local, and tribal governments and nonprofit organizations and report their findings to the Congress.
Using information from the NPS, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3616 would cost less than $500,000 over the 2022-2026 period; such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds.
