R E P O R T
[To accompany H.R. 1729]
[Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
The Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, to whom
was referred the bill (H.R. 1729) to designate the Federal
facility located at 1301 Emmet Street in Charlottesville,
Virginia, as the ``Pamela B. Gwin Hall'', having considered the
same, report favorably thereon without amendment and recommend
that the bill do pass.
Pamela B. Gwin began her 15-year tenure at the Federal
Executive Institute in 1983 as a faculty member. She received
her Ph.D. in Political Science from Duke University, and was a
member of the American Political Science Association,
Organization of American Historians, Southern Historical
Association, American Society for Public Administration and was
especially active in the American Society for Training and
Development and the Center for the Study of the Presidency.
Dr. Gwin educated her students in public policy, sharing
her deep interest in politics and the presidency. In 1987 she
became Assistant Director of Academic Programs and implemented
the design and operation of the Leadership for a Democratic
Society Program. Pam not only inspired her students to excel,
but also touched on every facet of the Federal Executive
Institute, influencing the elegant design of the Virginia
Study, the Alumni Lounge, along with the design and furnishing
of the new Annex and library.
Pam gave tirelessly to her students and everyone at the
Federal Executive Institute. She survived and continued working
for two years after receiving a heart transplant in 1996. Dr.
Gwin died in 1998.
This is a fitting designation for a dedicated educator.
On April 11, 2000, the Committee met in open session and
ordered reported H.R. 1729, designating the Federal building in
Charlottesville, Virginia on the Federal Executive Institute
campus as the ``Pamela B. Gwin Hall,'' discharged from the

Hazardous Materials and Pipeline Transportation. There were no

Congressional Budget Office,
Washington, DC, April 12, 2000.
Hon. Bud Shuster,
Chairman, Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, House of
Representatives, Washington, DC.
Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has
reviewed the following bills, which were ordered reported by
the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure on
April 11, 2000. CBO estimates that their enactment would have
no significant impact on the federal budget, and would not
affect direct spending or receipts; therefore, pay-as-you-go
procedures would not apply. The legislation contains no
intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on
state, local, or tribal governments. The bills reviewed are:
H.R. 1405, a bill to designate the federal
building located at 143 West Liberty Street, Medina,
Ohio, as the ``Donald J. Pease Federal Building;''
H.R. 1571, a bill to designate the federal
building under construction at 600 State Street in New
Haven, Connecticut, as the ``Merrill S. Parks, Jr.,
H.R. 1729, a bill to designate the federal
facility located at 1301 Emmet Street in
Charlottesville, Virginia, as the ``Pamela B. Gwin
H.R. 1901, a bill to designate the United
States border station located in Pharr, Texas, as the
``Kika de la Garza United States Border Station.''
If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is John R.
(For Dan L. Crippen, Director).
