H.R. 3361, USA FREEDOM Act

Cost Estimate
May 14, 2014

As ordered reported by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on May 8, 2014

H.R. 3361 would make several amendments to investigative and surveillance authorities of the United States government, and would specify the conditions under which the federal government may conduct certain types of surveillance. CBO does not provide estimates for classified programs; therefore, this estimate addresses only the unclassified aspects of the bill. On that limited basis, CBO estimates implementing H.R. 3361 would cost approximately $15 million over the 2015-2019 period, subject to the appropriation of the necessary amounts.
