H.R. 3674, Promoting and Enhancing Cybersecurity and Information Sharing Effectiveness Act of 2012

April 20, 2012
Cost Estimate


As ordered reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on April 20, 2012

H.R. 3674 would authorize appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS’s) National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC). The bill also would authorize the Secretary of DHS to establish new programs to provide cybersecurity training for state and local
officials. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3674 would result in additional discretionary spending totaling $28 million over the next five years, 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.

H.R. 3674 would impose an intergovernmental mandate as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA), but CBO estimates that implementing the mandate would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments. The bill contains no private-sector mandates as defined in UMRA.
