H.R. 3120, Student Visa Reform Act

Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on June 28, 2012

CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3120 would have no significant cost to the federal government. Enacting the bill could affect direct spending and revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that any effects would be insignificant for each year.

Under current law, foreign students may enter the United States temporarily to study at universities and other educational institutions. Under H.R. 3120, such students could only attend accredited institutions.
