                              R E P O R T

                         [To accompany S. 1794]

      [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]

    The Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, to whom 
was referred the bill (S. 1794) to designate the Federal 
courthouse at 145 East Simpson Avenue in Jackson, Wyoming, as 
the ``Clifford P. Hansen Federal Courthouse'', having 
considered the same, report favorably thereon without amendment 
and recommend that the bill do pass.
    Clifford P. Hansen was born on October 16, 1912 in Zenith, 
Wyoming. He attended the University of Wyoming, and later 
became a member of the Board of Trustees from 1946 until 1966. 
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 
National Cattlemen's Association and the Livestock Research and 
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 
lives in Jackson, Wyoming with his wife, Martha, and has two 
children, Mary and Peter.

                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                     Washington, DC, July 27, 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 
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 
        Courthouse.''
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is John R. 
Righter.
            Sincerely,
                                           Steven Lieberman
                                    (For Dan L. Crippen, Director.)
