As ordered reported by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on March 12, 2014

CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 4192 would have no effect on the federal budget. The legislation would amend the Height of Buildings Act of 1910, which limits the height of buildings in Washington, D.C. The legislation would allow human occupancy of certain building penthouses that are currently limited to mechanical uses (such as climate control or elevators). Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 4192 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
