Since we have been working hard on the passage of H.R. 7, I thought you may want to read the very brief budget impact, as prepared by the Congressional Budget Office.
This budget impact report is a necessary effort prior to a bill going to the House floor for a vote. We are now expecting a floor vote next week. H.R. 7 contains two important provisions, the unfreezing of the Harbor Maintenance Fund, which would allow dredging and re-authorization of the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund.
In addition, the Senate is also planning a floor vote next week on its version. It is expected that the Sport Fish fund, which is not in the committee bill, will be offered as an amendment on the Senate floor.
