H.R.2611 – Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site Boundary Modification Act
The purpose of H.R. 2611 is to modify the boundary of the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site.
‘This bill adjusts the boundary of the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site in Arkansas to include the seven residences on South Park Street in Little Rock, which consist of 1.47 acres of specified land.
‘The Department of the Interior may enter into separate cooperative agreements with the owners of such residences to mark, interpret, improve, restore, and provide technical assistance for the preservation and interpretation of their properties.
‘Such an agreement must include a provision specifying that no changes or alterations shall be made to the exterior of the properties except by mutual agreement.’ – CRS

Text of the motion:
COST AND IMPACT
Cost to the taxpayers: CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost less than $500,000 over the next five years, assuming availability of appropriated funds. Those costs would include updates to maps, handouts, and signage to reflect the new site boundary, and the provision of technical and financial assistance through the cooperative agreements. According to the NPS, the agency would not assume sole responsibility for the maintenance of the properties.
Pay-as-you-go requirements: Enacting H.R. 2611 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
Regulatory and Other Impact: H.R. 2611 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
Dynamic Scoring: CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 2611 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
