H.R. 4155, Veterans Skills to Jobs Act

Cost Estimate
July 3, 2012

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on June 27, 2012

H.R. 4155 would allow federal agencies to consider certain types of military training to be sufficient to satisfy training or certification requirements that an individual may need to obtain a federal license. Examples of such licenses include positions in the aviation and maritime industries. Information from the Department of Transportation indicates that this legislation would expand the department’s current programs to assist veterans but would not significantly change its workload. Thus, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 4155 would have no significant effect on the federal budget. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 4155 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
