As reported by the Committee on House Administration on March 4, 2015
H.R. 195 would eliminate the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) and transfer some of its responsibilities to the Federal Election Commission (FEC). The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) would be responsible for winding down the commission’s contracts and agreements. The EAC would terminate within 60 days of the bill’s enactment.
CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 195 would reduce spending that is subject to appropriation by $40 million over the 2016-2020 period. Enacting the bill would affect direct spending and revenues because we expect some EAC employees would retire earlier than they otherwise would; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. CBO estimates, however, that any net changes in the deficit would not be significant.
H.R. 195 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.
