He served as president of the University from 1955 to 1962.
While a member of the Board of Trustees, he became involved in
cattle ranching, which would lead to his involvement in land
rights advocacy. He served as an officer on the American

Marketing Advisory Committee, and commissioner of the Columbia
Interstate Compact and the Snake River Compact. Senator Hansen
was elected Governor of Wyoming in 1963, where he served for a
single term. After serving as Governor, he was elected to the
United State Senate in 1966. He served from 1967 until he
resigned from the Senate on New Year's Eve, 1978. During his
tenure in the Senate, he was a leader in granting states fair
compensation for their natural resources. President Reagan
appointed him to the Committee on Federalism in 1981, where he
studied a variety of ways to reform the federal government.
Senator Hansen currently is a member of the board of several
financial and civic organizations and has received the
Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Wyoming. He

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
July 26, 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. 4806, a bill to designate the Federal
building located at 1710 Alabama Avenue in Jasper,
Alabama, as the ``Carl Elliott Federal Building''; and
S. 1794, an act to designate the Federal
courthouse at 145 East Simpson Avenue in Jackson,
Wyoming, as the ``Clifford P. Hansen Federal
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.)
