As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on July 30, 2014
S. 2651 would eliminate three annual reports currently required of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General. The reports include audits or evaluations of Coast Guard programs and certain DHS grants.
Based on information from DHS about anticipated spending on these reports, CBO estimates that implementing S. 2651 could lower spending by $1 million to $2 million annually, assuming that future DHS appropriations are reduced consistent with the bill’s provisions. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
S. 2651 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.
