S. 2405, Trauma Systems and Regionalization of Emergency Care Reauthorization Act

Cost Estimate
July 29, 2014

As reported by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions on July 23, 2014

S. 2405 would amend the Public Health Service Act to authorize funding for public and private entities that provide trauma and emergency care services and for the administration of the Federal Interagency Committee on Emergency Medical Services.

The bill would authorize the appropriation of $24 million a year for each of fiscal years 2015 through 2019. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $101 million over the 2015-2019 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts. Pay-as- you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.

The bill contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
