H.R. 2067, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau Personnel Flexibilities Act

Cost Estimate
July 9, 2013

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on May 22, 2013

H.R. 2067 would permanently authorize the Secretary of the Treasury to establish a separate compensation and performance management system for certain employees in scientific, technical, or professional positions within the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TBB). It also would require the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to submit a report to the Congress analyzing the effectiveness of the system. CBO estimates that implementing this bill would cost about $5 million over the 2014-2018 period, assuming appropriations of the necessary amounts. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.

H.R. 2067 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
