S. 1857, Egypt Assistance Reform Act of 2013

Cost Estimate
January 31, 2014

As reported by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on December 18, 2013

S. 1857 would restrict certain types of foreign assistance to countries whose elected heads of government are deposed by a coup or military action and would condition assistance to Egypt on certain certifications by the Department of State. CBO estimates that implementing S. 1857 would have discretionary costs of less than $500,000 over the 2014-2019 period, assuming the availability of appropriated funds. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.
