S. 1495 would amend the Congressional Budget Act to establish a point of order, which a Member of Congress may raise, against certain legislation that would limit the obligation of funds from the Crime Victims Fund in the Department of Justice.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 1495 would, by itself, have no effect on federal spending. The bill could affect certain legislative proposals relating to the Crime Victims Fund, but we have no basis for predicting the future actions of the Congress under current law or under the provisions of S. 1495. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
S. 1495 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.
