As ordered reported by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on January 27, 2015
H.R. 313 would provide additional sick leave to veterans with a disability rated at 30 percent or greater who are newly hired by the federal government. That additional leave would have to be used for treatment of the employee’s disability and would expire one year after it became available to the employee. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 313 would cost $55 million over the next five years, subject to appropriation of the necessary funds. That cost represents the value of the additional sick leave that CBO estimates would be provided to newly hired veterans. In some cases that additional leave would lead to additional spending by agencies; in other cases agencies would lose the value of the work of the people using the additional days of leave.
Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.
H.R. 313 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.
