H.R. 5512, Divisional Realignment Act of 2012

May 24, 2012
Cost Estimate


As ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on May 16, 2012

H.R. 5512 would realign the federal court districts of Eastern Missouri and Northern Mississippi and condense the four divisions of the Northern District of Mississippi into three.

Based on information provided by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 5512 would have only minimal administrative costs and thus would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Enacting H.R. 5512 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 5512 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
