As ordered reported by the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on November 20, 2014
H.R. 2901 would designate lead employees at the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development to coordinate the Administration’s global water policy and to develop and oversee water and sanitation strategies for certain countries. Information from the two agencies indicates that many of the requirements under the bill are already being carried out. CBO estimates implementing the remaining provisions would cost less than $500,000 each year and a total of $2 million over the 2015-2019 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
H.R. 2901 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.
