As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on September 20, 2012
S. 3546 would authorize through 2017 a grant program to preserve Native American languages. CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would cost about $60 million over the 2013-2017 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.
