As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on September 19, 2012
S. 2215 would expand federal programs and initiatives to promote exports to Africa. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have discretionary costs of $24 million over the 2013-2017 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts.
Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.
S. 2215 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
