H.R. 4323, Debbie Smith Reauthorization Act of 2014

Cost Estimate
April 4, 2014

As ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on April 2, 2014

H.R. 4323 would authorize the appropriation of $968 million over the 2015-2019 period for Department of Justice programs to enhance the analysis of DNA samples and other work relating to criminal investigations. Assuming appropriation of the specified amounts, we estimate that implementing H.R. 4323 would cost $644 million over the 2015-2019 period, with remaining amounts spent in subsequent years. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 4323 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
