S. 2318, Department of State Rewards Program Update and Technical Corrections Act of 2012

November 2, 2012
Cost Estimate


As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on September 19, 2012

S. 2318 would authorize the Department of State to make payments for information that would prevent or disrupt transnational organized crime or lead to the arrest or conviction of persons involved in war crimes, crimes against humanity, or genocide. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have discretionary costs of $10 million over the 2013-2017 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts.

Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.

S. 2318 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
