S. 1632 would require the Secretaries of State and Defense to develop and submit to the Congress a joint five-year strategy to help Nigeria, neighboring countries, and regional partners counter the threat posed by Boko Haram. It also would require the Director of National Intelligence to provide an assessment to the Congress of the ability and willingness of those foreign governments and regional partners to implement that strategy.
Based on the cost of similar activities, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost less than $500,000 over the 2016-2020 period; that spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated amounts. Because enacting S. 1632 would not affect direct spending or revenues, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
S. 1632 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.
