H.R. 3857, Public Transit Security and Local Law Enforcement Support Act

Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on May 9, 2012

H.R. 3857 would authorize appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to make grants to state and local governments to support security improvements to public transportation systems. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $702 million over the 2012-2017 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.
