As ordered reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on April 30, 2014
H.R. 3283 would authorize appropriations totaling $40 million over the 2015-2017 period for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to modernize the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS). The bill also would establish a committee to develop and submit recommendations for improving the system. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3283 would cost $38 million over the next five years, assuming appropriation of the specified amounts.
Enacting this legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 3283 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.
