  (a) Disposition of Proceeds.--Section 312 of the White Pine County 
Conservation, Recreation, and Development Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-
432; 120 Stat. 3030) is amended--
          (1) in paragraph (2), by striking ``and planning'' and 
        inserting ``municipal water and sewer infrastructure, public 
        electric transmission facilities, public broadband 
        infrastructure, and planning''; and
          (2) in paragraph (3)--
                  (A) in subparagraph (G), by striking ``; and'' and 
                inserting a semicolon;
                  (B) in subparagraph (H), by striking the period at 
                the end and inserting ``; and''; and
                  (C) by adding at the end the following:
                  ``(I) processing by a government entity of public 
                land-use authorizations and rights-of-way relating to 
                the development of land conveyed to the County under 
                this Act, with an emphasis on authorizations and 
                rights-of-way relating to any infrastructure needed for 
                the expansion of the White Pine County Industrial Park 
                under section 352(c)(2).''.
  (b) Conveyance to White Pine County, Nevada.--Section 352 of the 
White Pine County Conservation, Recreation, and Development Act of 2006 
(Public Law 109-432; 120 Stat. 3039) is amended--
          (1) in subsection (a), by inserting ``not later than 120 days 
        after the date of the enactment of the Nevada Lands Bill 
        Technical Corrections Act of 2018'' before ``the Secretary'';
          (2) in subsection (c)(3)(B)(i), by striking ``through a 
        competitive bidding process'' and inserting ``consistent with 
        section 244 of the Nevada Revised Statutes (as in effect on the 
        date of enactment of the Eastern Nevada Economic Development 
        and Land Management Improvement Act)''; and
          (3) by adding at the end the following:
  ``(e) Deadline.--If the Secretary has not conveyed to the County the 
parcels of land described in subsection (b) by the date that is 120 
days after the date of the enactment of the Nevada Lands Bill Technical 
Corrections Act of 2018, the Secretary shall convey to the County, 
without consideration, all right, title, and interest of the United 
States in and to the parcels of land.''.

                          Purpose of the Bill

    The purpose of H.R. 6299 is to modify the process of the 
Secretary of the Interior for examining certain mining claims 
on federal lands in Storey County, Nevada, to facilitate 
certain pinyon-juniper-related projects in Lincoln County, 
Nevada, to modify the boundaries of certain wilderness areas in 
the State of Nevada, and to fully implement the White Pine 
County Conservation, Recreation, and Development Act.

                  Background and Need for Legislation

    H.R. 6299 amends several Nevada land sale/use laws. First, 
the bill provides a technical correction that will enable the 
Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to complete a land transfer in 
Storey County that resolves conflicting ownership and title 
claims. This transfer is supported by BLM and the provision was 
originally enacted as part of the Fiscal Year 2015 National 
Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).\1\ That law identified the 
land to be transferred as a ``mining townsite.''\2\ The 
townsite definition triggers an unnecessary cadastral study 
that has delayed the BLM's completion of this transfer. This 
bill changes that definition to ``the subject Federal land'' 
which will allow the transfer to finally go through.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\Public Law 113-291
    \2\Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Second, the bill makes a technical correction to help 
implement a multi-species habitat conservation plan (MSHCP) to 
benefit economic development and expansion in Mesquite, Nevada. 
In 2002, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) required the 
City of Mesquite to create a MSHCP to protect several species 
in the Lower Virgin River Basin before moving ahead with two 
land acquisitions. The City planned to use funds from the 
Mesquite Lands Act\3\--a law passed by Congress in 1986 that 
allowed the city to acquire and develop the lands--to complete 
the MSHCP. FWS signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with 
Mesquite to carry out the law. This agreement expired in 2014 
and FWS refused to sign a new MOA or allow the City access to 
necessary funding because it did not feel that the law provided 
explicit authority to implement the MSHCP. As a result, all 
efforts to advance the MSHCP and expand the City are at a 
stand-still. This bill remedies the problem by making a 
technical correction to the Mesquite Lands Act that will 
provide the necessary authority to FWS to implement the 
conservation plan, after it signs a new MOA with the City of 
Mesquite.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \3\Public Law 99-548
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Third, the bill assists rangeland and woodland restoration 
projects by authorizing BLM to use a portion of proceeds from 
land sales to conduct hazardous fuel reduction projects and 
wildfire planning in pinyon-juniper landscapes. Under the 
Lincoln County Land Act of 2000 (LCLA),\4\ and Lincoln County 
Conservation, Recreation and Development Act of 2004 
(LCCRDA),\5\ 85 percent of proceeds from the sale of federal 
lands in Lincoln County are managed in special accounts with 
prescribed uses by BLM. This bill provides BLM with flexibility 
to determine which projects can be funded for pinyon-juniper 
landscape restoration projects using existing funds in the 
special account. Thinning of pinyon-juniper stands will help to 
prevent catastrophic wildfires as well as protect and enhance 
greater sage-grouse habitat in the County.

    \5\Public Law 108-424
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Lastly, the bill makes several boundary adjustments that 
collectively reduce three wilderness areas in White Pine and 
Nye Counties by approximately 50 acres. The bill reduces the 
Mt. Moriah Wilderness Area by 23 acres to improve public access 
to the Big Canyon Trailhead main road and facilities. The bill 
reduces the High Schells Wilderness Area by 11.7 acres to 
adjust a road and provide land to an existing Girl Scout camp. 
Finally, the bill reduces the size of the Arc Dome Wilderness 
Area by approximately 10 acres to release a small dam owned and 
operated by the Yamba Tribe.

               MAJOR PROVISIONS OF H.R. 6299, AS REPORTED

SEC. 2. AMENDMENT TO CONVEYANCE OF FEDERAL LAND IN STOREY COUNTY, 
                    NEVADA.

    Amends the Fiscal Year 2015 NDAA to change the definition 
of the land in question from ``a mining townsite'' to ``the 
subject Federal land.'' The townsite definition triggers an 
unnecessary cadastral survey that has delayed BLM from 
completing the transfer.

SEC. 3. ZIP CODE DESIGNATION.

    Requires the Postal Service to designate a single zip code 
for the area encompassing Storey County, Nevada.

SEC. 4. FACILITATION OF PINYON-JUNIPER-RELATED PROJECTS IN LINCOLN 
                    COUNTY, NEVADA.

    Amends the Lincoln County Land Act of 2000 and Lincoln 
County Conservation, Recreation, and Development Act of 2004 so 
that funds in the special account under each law can be used 
for the development and implementation of multijurisdictional 
hazardous fuels reduction projects and wildfire prevention 
planning (particularly for pinyon-juniper dominated landscapes) 
and other rangeland and woodland restoration projects within 
the County, consistent with the Ely Resource Management Plan 
and subject to approval by the relevant Secretary. Amends both 
laws to waive cost-recovery fees for the processing of 
applications for rights-of-way submitted by local or regional 
governments within the County necessary to deliver government-
provided services to land conveyed pursuant to this Act. Amends 
both laws to require the establishment of cooperative 
agreements between BLM and Lincoln County for County-provided 
law enforcement and planning activities regarding wilderness 
and cultural resources, management of the Silver State Off 
Highway Vehicle rail, and planning associated with land 
disposal and related land use authorizations required for 
utility corridors and rights-of-way. Amends both laws so that 
``the Lincoln County Regional Development Authority'' is added 
to the list of recipients of certain proceeds from the sale of 
land parcels. Amends the Lincoln County Conservation, 
Recreation, and Development Act of 2004 so that certain lands 
are not withdrawn from forms of entry, appropriation, and 
disposal under the public land laws; location, entry, and 
patent under the mining laws; and operation of the mineral 
leasing and geothermal leasing laws.

SEC. 5. MT. MORIAH WILDERNESS, HIGH SCHELLS WILDERNESS, AND ARC DOME 
                    WILDERNESS BOUNDARY ADJUSTMENTS.

    Amends the Pam White Wilderness Act to adjust the boundary 
of the Mt. Moriah Wilderness to include the land identified as 
the ``Mount Moriah Wilderness Area'' and ``Mount Moriah 
Additions'' on the map entitled ``Eastern White Pine County'' 
(dated November 29, 2006) and the land identified as ``NFS 
Lands'' on the map entitled ``Proposed Wilderness Boundary 
Adjustment Mt. Moriah Wilderness Area'' (dated June 18, 2014). 
Amends the Pam White Wilderness Act to adjust the boundary of 
the High Schells Wilderness to include the land identified as 
``Include as Wilderness'' on the map entitled ``McCoy Creek 
Adjustment'' (dated November 3, 2014) and to exclude the land 
identified as ``NFS Lands'' on the map entitled ``Proposed 
Wilderness Boundary Adjustment High Schells Wilderness Area'' 
(dated June 17, 2014). Amends the Nevada Wilderness Protection 
Act of 1989 to adjust the boundary of the Arc Dome Wilderness 
to exclude the land identified as ``Exclude from Wilderness'' 
on the map entitled ``Arc Dome Adjustment'' (dated November 3, 
2014).

SEC. 6. IMPLEMENTATION OF WHITE PINE COUNTY CONSERVATION, RECREATION, 
                    AND DEVELOPMENT ACT.

    Amends the White Pine County Conservation, Recreation, and 
Development Act to include municipal water and sewer 
infrastructure, public electric transmission facilities, public 
broadband infrastructure, and planning. Amends the White Pine 
County Conservation, Recreation, and Development Act to include 
processing by a government entity of public land use 
authorizations and rights-of-way relating to the development of 
land conveyed to the County under the Act. Expedites the 
conveyance to White Pine County, Nevada, by inserting a 
deadline of December 31, 2018. If the Secretary of the Interior 
or of Agriculture has not conveyed the lands to the County by 
that date the Secretary shall immediately convey to the County, 
without consideration, all right, title, and interest of the 
United States in and to the parcels of land.

                            Committee Action

    H.R. 6299 was introduced on June 29, 2018, by Congressman

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                Washington, DC, September 24, 2018.
Hon. Rob Bishop,
Chairman, Committee on Natural Resources,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 6299, the Nevada 
Lands Bill Technical Corrections Act of 2018.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Janani 
Shankaran.
            Sincerely,
                                             Mark P. Hadley
                                        (For Keith Hall, Director).
    Enclosure.

H.R. 6299--Nevada Lands Bill Technical Corrections Act of 2018

    Summary: H.R. 6299 would amend several current laws related 
to the management and conveyance of land managed by the Bureau 
of Land Management (BLM) in Nevada. The bill also would direct 
the Postal Service (USPS) to establish a new ZIP code for a 
community in Nevada. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 6299 
would cost less than $500,000 over the 2019-2023 period; any 
spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated 
funds.
    CBO also estimates that enacting the bill would increase 
direct spending by $2 million over the 2019-2028 period; 
therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. The bill would not 
affect revenues.
    CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 6299 would not 
significantly increase net direct spending or on-budget 
deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods 
beginning in 2029.
    H.R. 6299 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
    Basis of estimate: The estimated costs of the legislation 
fall within budget functions 300 (natural resources and 
environment) and 370 (commerce and housing credit). CBO assumes 
that the bill will be enacted before the end of 2018.

Direct Spending

    In total, CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 6299 would 
increase direct spending by $2 million over the 2019-2028 
period.
    Bureau of Land Management. Three current laws--the Lincoln 
County Land Act of 2000, the Lincoln County Conservation, 
Recreation, and Development Act of 2004, and the White Pine 
County Conservation, Recreation, and Development Act of 2006--
provide for the disposal of public land within Lincoln and 
White Pine Counties in Nevada. Under those laws, proceeds from 
land sales are deposited into special accounts and are 
available to be spent without future appropriation by BLM to 
facilitate land sales, develop land management plans, and 
perform other specified activities in those counties.
    H.R. 6299 would authorize BLM to use funds in those 
accounts to conduct fuel reduction and other wildfire 
prevention activities and to carry out a wildlife conservation 
plan in Lincoln County. In addition, the bill would authorize 
using those funds to cover the cost of processing land use 
authorizations and rights-of-way in White Pine County. (The 
affected accounts currently have unobligated balances totaling 
about $31 million.) Thus, enacting the bill would increase 
direct spending outlays over the next 10 years for the new 
activities authorized in the bill. Using information from BLM 
about its plans to carry out the activities authorized under 
H.R. 6299, CBO estimates that enacting the bill would increase 
direct spending by $2 million over the 2019-2028 period (about 
$200,000 a year, on average).
    CBO expects that most of that spending would be for fuel 
reduction and land conservation projects in Lincoln County. 
Using information from local planners, CBO expects that 
implementing the wildlife conservation plan for Lincoln County 
would cost around $20 million over the next 30 years; however, 
most of those funds would come from state, local, and private 
contributions. Therefore, CBO does not expect that the bill 
would significantly increase federal spending for that 
activity. In addition, based on information provided by BLM 
regarding the amount of funds in the White Pine County special 
account, CBO estimates that any additional spending from that 
account would be negligible.
    H.R. 6299 also would require the BLM to convey, at the 
request of Lincoln County, 400 acres of federal land located in 
the county. Under the bill, the federal government would retain 
mineral rights to the land. If the affected land contains 
existing rights-of-way that generate proceeds for the federal 
government, CBO estimates that conveying that land could reduce 
offsetting receipts, which are treated as reductions in direct 
spending. However, CBO expects that any reduction in offsetting 
receipts would be negligible.
    Postal Service. Section 3 would require the USPS to 
establish a new ZIP code for a community in Nevada. Using 
information from the USPS, CBO estimates that phasing in an 
additional ZIP code would increase the agency's administrative 
and mail delivery costs by less than $200,000 in fiscal year 
2019 and by less than $500,000 over the 2019-2028 period. USPS 
cash flows are recorded in the federal budget in the Postal 
Service Fund and are classified as off-budget.

Spending subject to appropriation

    CBO expects that under H.R. 6299, BLM would incur costs 
associated with the land conveyance to Lincoln County. Based on 
the costs of similar activities, CBO estimates that those costs 
would not be significant.
    H.R. 6299 also would make technical adjustments to the 
boundaries of several federal wilderness areas and a utility 
corridor on public land in Nevada and aim to expedite 
authorized conveyances of federal land to White Pine and Storey 
Counties. In addition, the bill would validate a corrective 
patent issued by BLM for specific land in Clark County and 
authorize BLM to issue a corrective patent for land in Lincoln 
County. CBO estimates that the cost of implementing those 
provisions would not be significant.
    Pay-As-You-Go considerations: The Statutory Pay-As-You-Go 
Act of 2010 establishes budget-reporting and enforcement 
procedures for legislation affecting direct spending or 
revenues. The net changes in outlays that are subject to those 
pay-as-you-go procedures are shown in the following table. 
(Only on-budget changes to outlays or revenues are subject to 
pay-as-you-go procedures.)

    Increase in long-term direct spending and deficits: CBO 
estimates that enacting H.R. 6299 would not significantly 
increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of 
the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
    Mandates: H.R. 6299 contains no intergovernmental or 
private-sector mandates as defined in UMRA.
    Previous CBO estimate: On September 13, 2017, CBO 
transmitted a cost estimate for H.R. 2374, the Eastern Nevada 
Economic Development and Land Management Improvement Act, as 
ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on 
July 26, 2017. That legislation is similar to provisions of 
H.R. 6299, and CBO's estimates of the budgetary effects of 
those provisions are the same.
    Estimate prepared by: Federal costs: Janani Shankaran 
(Bureau of Land Management), Mark Grabowicz (Postal Service); 
Mandates: Zachary Byrum.

Physical Resources Cost Estimates Unit; H. Samuel Papenfuss, 
Deputy Assistant Director for Budget Analysis.
    2. General Performance Goals and Objectives. As required by 
clause 3(c)(4) of rule XIII, the general performance goal or 
objective of this bill is to modify the process of the 
Secretary of the Interior for examining certain mining claims 
on federal lands in Storey County, Nevada, to facilitate 
certain pinyon-juniper-related projects in Lincoln County, 
Nevada, to modify the boundaries of certain wilderness areas in 
the State of Nevada, and to fully implement the White Pine 
County Conservation, Recreation, and Development Act.
