H.R. 1204, Aviation Security Stakeholder Participation Act of 2013

Cost Estimate
November 21, 2013

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on October 29, 2013

H.R. 1204 would establish, within the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), an advisory committee to make recommendations on issues related to aviation security. The bill would specify details related to the organizational structure and reporting requirements of the proposed advisory committee.

Under current law, TSA already operates an advisory committee related to aviation security. According to TSA, the agency currently spends less than $100,000 annually to operate the existing committee, which has a mission and organizational structure that is similar to that of the committee envisioned under H.R. 1204. As a result, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 1204 would have no significant additional cost. H.R. 1204 would not affect direct spending or receipts; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 1204 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.
