The Congressional Budget Office has reviewed the following legislation ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on June 28, 2012:
- H.R. 823, a bill for the relief of Maria Carmen Castro Ramirez and J. Refugio Carreno Rojas;
- H.R. 824, a bill for the relief of Daniel Wachira;
- H.R. 316, a bill for the relief of Esther Karinge;
- H.R. 794, a bill for the relief of Allan Bolor Kelley;
- H.R. 357, a bill for the relief of Corina de Chalup Turcinovic; and
- H.R. 1857, a bill for the relief of Bartosz Kumor.
Those bills would make certain individuals eligible for permanent U.S. residence and could have a very small effect on fees collected by the Department of Homeland Security and thus would affect direct spending. Therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. CBO estimates, however, that enacting those pieces of legislation would not have a significant impact on the federal budget.
