As ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on June 28, 2012
H.R. 6019 would authorize the appropriation of $40 million annually over the 2013-2017 period for the Department of Justice (DOJ) to make grants to state and local governments for programs to strengthen the juvenile justice system, including programs to combat bullying in schools.
Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 6019 would cost $121 million over the 2013-2017 period. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.
H.R. 6019 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
