                                _______
                                

   Mr. Barrasso, from the Committee on Environment and Public Works, 
                        submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

                         [To accompany S. 2827]

      [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]

    The Committee on Environment and Public Works, to which was 
referred the bill (S. 2827) to amend the Morris K. Udall and 
Stewart L. Udall Foundation Act, having considered the same, 
reports favorably thereon with an amendment in the nature of a 
substitute and recommends that the bill, as amended, do pass.

                    General Statement and Background

    The Morris K. Udall Scholarship and Excellence in National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1992 was signed into law by 
President Bush on March 19, 1992. The Act established the 
Morris K. Udall Scholarship and Excellence in National 
Environmental Policy Foundation (Udall Foundation), so named to 
honor the career and public service of Morris K. Udall. The 
Udall Foundation was established for several purposes, 
including: (1) to award scholarships and fellowships to 
outstanding students intending to pursue careers in the 
environment, and internships to outstanding Native Americans 
and Alaska Native college students intending to pursue careers 
in health care and tribal public policy; (2) to provide for a 
panel of experts to meet annually to discuss contemporary 
environmental issues; and (3) to establish a program for 
environmental policy research and a program for environmental 
conflict resolution.
    Although originally tasked with establishing a program for 
environmental dispute resolution, the Udall Foundation lacked 
the funding and explicit direction to enable it to operate a 
program that could provide conflict-resolution services. Thus, 
in 1998, Congress passed the Environmental Policy and Conflict 
Resolution Act of 1997 to create the United States Institute 
for Environmental Conflict Resolution (Institute) as part of 
the Foundation. The Institute provides mediation and related 
services to help resolve environmental, natural resources, and 
public lands conflicts that involve the federal government.
    On November 4, 2009, President Barack Obama signed into law 
the Morris K. Udall Scholarship and Excellence in National 
Environmental Policy Amendments Act of 2009. The Act enhanced 
the Udall Foundation, and (to honor Stewart L. Udall) 
officially renamed it the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall 
Foundation, the name the Foundation bears today.
    Senator John McCain was a steadfast advocate for the Udall 
Foundation, and instrumental to the legislative creation and 
expansion of the Foundation and its programs. He was a 
cosponsor of the Foundation's enabling legislation in 1992 and 
the amendments enacted in 2009. Moreover, he introduced the 
1997 legislation creating the Institute.
    S. 2827, a bill to amend the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. 
Udall Foundation Act, authorizes appropriations of $4,000,000 
annually through fiscal year 2024 for the Environmental Dispute 
Resolution Fund to provide funding for the Institute. The 
legislation also increases the Trust Fund allocation limit for 
administrative expenses to help support mission activities, 
makes several changes to the existing statutory language to 
clarify the authority of the Udall Foundation, and eliminates 
inconsistencies in language and authority, among other 
objectives.
    A substitute amendment was proposed and accepted during 
Committee consideration of S. 2827. The substitute amendment 
modified the name of the Institute to the ``John S. McCain III 
United States Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution'' 
to honor Senator McCain's legacy and contributions to the Udall 
Foundation. In addition, in the underlying legislation, S. 
2827, a change was proposed to increase the amount of allowable 
administrative costs. The substitute amendment modified this 
proposed increase of administrative costs from the existing 
statutory ceiling of 15 percent to 17.5 percent, instead of the 
20 percent proposed to be authorized to cover such costs in S. 
2827 as introduced.

                     Objectives of the Legislation

    The bill authorizes appropriations of $4,000,000 annually 
through fiscal year 2024 for the Environmental Dispute 
Resolution Fund to provide funding for the Institute, renames 
the Institute the ``John S. McCain III United States Institute 
for Environmental Conflict Resolution'' to honor Senator 
McCain's legacy and contributions to the Udall Foundation, 
increases the Trust Fund allocation limit for administrative 
expenses to help support mission activities, and makes several 
changes to the existing statutory language to clarify the 
authority of the Udall Foundation, among other objectives.

                      Section-by-Section Analysis


Section 1. Findings

    This section makes Congressional findings regarding the 
positive impacts of the Foundation's Parks in Focus Program, 
and the Foundation's Native Nations Institute for Leadership, 
Management, and Policy. Congress further finds that the 
Foundation is committed to making a substantial contribution 
toward public policy.

Section 2. Definitions

    This section renames the ``United States Institute for 
Environmental Conflict Resolution'' the ``John S. McCain III 
United States Institute for Environmental Conflict 
Resolution''. This section also includes the Native Nations 
Institute in the definition of the Udall Center, and makes the 
``Native Nations Institute'' a defined term. This section also 
adds definitions for the terms ``collaboration'' and ``Nation's 
parks and wilderness.''

Section 3. Establishment of Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall 
        Foundation

    This section adds the District of Colombia as one of the 
locations of the Foundation.

Section 4. Purpose of the foundation

    This section amends Section 6 of the Morris K. Udall and 
Stewart L. Udall Foundation Act (10 U.S.C 5604) by revising 
paragraph (4) to eliminate any duplication of authority between 
the Udall Center and the Institute with regard to research, 
environmental conflict resolution and training. This section 
also revises paragraph (5) to include training related to 
natural resources and conflict resolution, paragraph (7) to 
identify the Native Nations Institute and include the term 
``education,'' and paragraph (8) to include the terms 
``issues'' and ``conflicts.''

Section 5. Authority of the foundation

    This section clarifies the authority of the Foundation to 
conduct education programs and clarifies the authority of the 
Board of Trustees to approve education programs consistent with 
the purposes for which the Foundation was established. This 
section also clarifies the authority of the Foundation to 
assist in the development of programs at the Udall Center, 
clarifies the authority of the Foundation with respect to the 
papers of Stewart L. Udall, and provides authority for the 
Foundation to assist the Native Nations Institute directly or 
indirectly, as directed by Congress. Further, this section 
clarifies how the Foundation is to be allocated funds from the 
Trust Fund, and raises the allocation limit for administrative 
expenses from 15 percent to 17.5 percent. This section further 
corrects all cross references to Section 6 of the Morris K. 
Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation Act (10 U.S.C 5604), and 
includes a reference to ``collaboration'' and ``Federal, state 
or tribal environmental or natural resource decision-making 
processes or procedures that may result in a dispute or 
conflict.'' Finally, this section repeals the provisions 
relating to office space and third party matching funds for 
allocation to the Udall Center.

Section 6. Use of institute by Federal agency or other entity

    This section specifies how a federal agency may use the 
Foundation and the Institute by adding the term 
``collaboration'' as that term is defined. This section adds 
``a Federal, State, or tribal process or procedure that may 
result in a dispute or conflict'' as a scenario in which an 
agency may use the Foundation and Institute.

Section 7. Administrative provisions

    This section clarifies the authority of the Foundation to 
solicit and accept donations, grants, and gifts, including from 
the Institute. This section also clarifies the authority of the 
Foundation to rent office space in Tucson, Arizona.

Section 8. Authorization of appropriations

    This section authorizes appropriations of $4 million 
annually for the Environmental Dispute Resolution Fund from 
fiscal years 2019 through 2024.

                          Legislative History

    On May 10, 2018, Senators Heinrich and McCain introduced S. 
2827, a bill to amend the Morris K. and Stewart L. Udall 
Foundation Act. The bill was read twice and referred to the 
Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. Senators 
Alexander and Kyl are additional co-sponsors. The Committee met 
on September 18, 2018, and ordered S. 2827 favorably reported 
by voice vote with an amendment in the nature of a substitute 
offered by Senator Barrasso.

                                Hearings

    No legislative hearings were held by the Committee on 
Environment and Public Works to consider S. 2827.

                             Rollcall Votes

    On September 18, 2018, the Committee on Environment and 
Public Works met to consider S. 2827. The bill was ordered 
favorably reported by voice vote with an amendment in the 
nature of a substitute. No roll call votes were taken.

                      Regulatory Impact Statement

    In compliance with section 11(b) of rule XXVI of the 
Standing Rules of the Senate, the Committee finds that S. 2827 
does not create any additional regulatory burdens, nor will it 
cause any adverse impact on the personal privacy of 
individuals.

                          Mandates Assessment

    In compliance with the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 
(Public Law 104-4), the Committee notes that the Congressional 
Budget Office found, ``S. 2827 contains no intergovernmental or 
private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates 
Reform Act (UMRA).''

                          Cost of Legislation

    Section 403 of the Congressional Budget and Impoundment 
Control Act requires that a statement of the cost of the 
reported bill, prepared by the Congressional Budget Office, be 
included in the report. That statement follows:

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                  Washington, DC, October 22, 2018.
Hon. John Barrasso,
Chairman, Committee on Environment and Public Works,
U.S. Senate, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for S. 2827, a bill to 
amend the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation Act.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Justin 
Humphrey.
            Sincerely,
                                                Keith Hall,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.

S. 2827--A bill to amend the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall 
        Foundation Act

    Summary: S. 2827 would amend the Morris K. Udall and 
Stewart L. Udall Foundation Act and reauthorize the 
appropriation of funds for the Environmental Dispute Resolution 
Fund and the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Trust Fund. 
CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $30 million 
over the 2019-2023 period and an additional $15 million over 
the subsequent five years. That spending would be subject to 
appropriation of the estimated amounts.
    The trust fund invests its balances in Treasury 
obligations, and the interest from those investments is 
available without further appropriation to support the fund's 
activities. Enacting S. 2827 would increase the amounts 
available for investment and thus increase the interest the 
trust fund earns and spends. CBO estimates that direct spending 
would total $2 million over the 2019-2028 period; therefore, 
pay-as-you-go procedures apply. The bill would not affect 
revenues.
    CBO estimates that enacting S. 2827 would not increase net 
direct spending or on-budget deficits by more than $5 billion 
in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 
2029.
    S. 2827 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
    Estimated cost to the Federal Government: The estimated 
budgetary effects of S. 2827 are shown in the following table. 
The costs of the legislation fall within budget functions 300 
(natural resources and the environment) and 500 (education, 
training, employment, and social services).

    Basis of estimate: The Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall 
Foundation is an independent agency of the executive branch. 
The foundation's activities are funded by appropriations to the 
Environmental Dispute Resolution Fund (EDRF) and the Morris K. 
Udall and Stewart L. Udall Trust Fund. Although the underlying 
authorizations for those programs have expired, the Congress 
has continued to appropriate funds for them.
    For this estimate, CBO assumes the bill will be enacted 
near the end of 2018 and that the necessary funds will be 
appropriated each year. Estimated outlays are based on 
historical spending patterns.

Spending subject to appropriation

    CBO estimates that S. 2827 would authorize the 
appropriation of $30 million over the 2019-2023 period and an 
additional $15 million over the subsequent five years. 
Implementing the bill's provisions would cost $45 million over 
the 2019-2028 period, CBO estimates.
    Environmental Dispute Resolution Fund. Appropriations for 
the EDRF are used to support the annual operations of the U.S. 
Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution. From 2019 
through 2024, S. 2827 would authorize the annual appropriation 
of $3 million to pay operating costs and $1 million to pay for 
services to support federal and nonfederal entities in 
environmental conflict resolution proceedings involving federal 
agencies. CBO estimates that implementing those provisions 
would cost $18 million over the 2019-2023 period. The Congress 
appropriated $3 million for the EDRF for 2019.
    Trust Fund. Appropriations to the trust fund are invested 
in Treasury obligations, with some of the appropriated funds 
transferred during the year to support the Native Nations 
Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy. The rest of 
the appropriation remains in the fund and the annual interest 
credited to the fund is available to support various 
scholarship and fellowship programs.
    S. 2827 would not specifically amend the period for which 
appropriations to the trust fund are authorized. However, the 
bill would amend other parts of the law that authorizes those 
activities. As a result, CBO's estimate is based on the 
expectation that the Congress intends those activities to 
continue and thus that S. 2827 would permanently authorize the 
appropriation of such sums as may be necessary.
    The Congress appropriated $2 million to the trust fund to 
invest in Treasury obligations for fiscal year 2018. Assuming 
appropriation of a similar amount for 2019, and increasing that 
amount for expected inflation in future years, CBO estimates 
that the bill would authorize the appropriation of $10 million 
over the 2019-2023 period and that outlays would total the same 
amount over that period.

Direct spending

    CBO estimates that enacting S. 2827 would increase direct 
spending by $2 million over the 2019-2028 period.
    Environmental Dispute Resolution Fund. Appropriations for 
the EDRF would be used to support the annual operations of the 
U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution. As part 
of its operations, the institute provides services to and 
receives payments from federal and nonfederal entities, which 
are treated as reductions in direct spending. The institute can 
then spend those payments on additional activities without 
further appropriation. However, CBO expects that those payments 
are likely to be spent shortly after they are collected, so 
enacting S. 2827 would result in a negligible net effect on 
direct spending by the EDRF.
    Trust Fund. The bill would authorize additional 
appropriations, which the trust fund would invest in Treasury 
obligations. The interest earned would be used for the trust 
fund's activities. Those outlays are classified as direct 
spending because the fund can spend the interest without 
further appropriation.
    CBO estimates that enacting S. 2827 would authorize the 
appropriation of $21 million over the 2019-2028 period for the 
trust fund to invest in Treasury obligations. Based on CBO's 
projections of interest rates, the trust fund would earn, and 
subsequently spend, an additional $2 million over the 2019-2028 
period.
    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. CBO estimates that enacting S. 2827 would increase 
direct spending by an insignificant amount in each fiscal year 
from 2019 to 2028 and by $2 million over the 2019-2028 period, 
as shown in the table at the top of page 2.
    Increase in long-term direct spending and deficits: CBO 
estimates that enacting S. 2827 would not increase net direct 
spending or on-budget deficits by more than $5 billion in any 
of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
    Mandates: S. 2827 contains no intergovernmental or private-
sector mandates as defined in UMRA.
    Estimate prepared by: Federal costs: Justin Humphrey and 
Robert Reese; Mandates: Zachary Byrum.
    Estimate reviewed by: Kim P. Cawley, Chief, Natural and 
Physical Resources Cost Estimates Unit; Sheila Dacey, Chief, 
Income Security and Education Cost Estimates Unit; H. Samuel 
Papenfuss, Deputy Assistant Director for Budget Analysis; 
Theresa Gullo, Assistant Director for Budget Analysis.
