H.R. 6063, Child Protection Act of 2012

July 30, 2012
Cost Estimate


As ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on July 10, 2012

H.R. 6063 would amend certain laws that establish federal crimes related to child pornography and would reauthorize funding through 2018 for the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force Program. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $121 million over the 2013-2017 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts. Enacting H.R. 6063 could affect direct spending and revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that any net effects would be insignificant in any year.

H.R. 6063 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
