H.R. 3409, Coal Miner Employment and Domestic Energy Infrastructure Protection Act

September 18, 2012
Cost Estimate


As posted on the Web site of the House Committee on Rules (Committee Print 112-32)

CBO estimates that implementing the bill would reduce future discretionary spending by $245 million over the 2013-2017 period, assuming that appropriations in those years were reduced accordingly. Such reductions would primarily stem from prohibiting the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases.
