S. 1386, Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty Embassy Security, Threat Mitigation, and Personnel Protection Act of 2013

Cost Estimate
November 8, 2013

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations
on August 1, 2013

S. 1386 would authorize appropriations for the Department of State’s embassy security programs. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have discretionary costs of about $1.8 billion over the 2014-2018 period, assuming appropriation of the specified and estimated amounts.

In addition, CBO estimates that enacting the bill would increase direct spending by $15 million over the 2014-2023 period, and thus, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Enacting the bill would not affect revenues.

S. 1386 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
