S. 2142, Venezuela Defense of Human Rights and Civil Society Act of 2014

Cost Estimate
May 30, 2014

As reported by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on May 22, 2014

S. 2142 would impose sanctions against Venezuela and authorize appropriations to support civil society in that country. CBO estimates that implementing S. 2142 would cost $23 million over the 2015-2019 period, assuming appropriation of the specified and necessary amounts. Pay-as-you-go procedures apply to this legislation because it would affect direct spending and revenues; however, CBO estimates that those effects would not be significant.
