H.R. 3584 would specify a variety of requirements related primarily to aviation security programs implemented by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The bill would modify TSA programs for screening air passengers, vetting certain employees with access to secure areas of airports, conducting maintenance of screening equipment, and would require various administrative analyses and reports.
CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3584 would cost $21 million over the 2016-2020 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts. Enacting H.R. 3584 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
Enacting H.R. 3584 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2026.
H.R. 3584 would impose an intergovernmental and private-sector mandate as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) on airport authorities that issue badges to people authorized to work at airports. Based on information from TSA and groups representing airport authorities, CBO estimates that the cost to both public and private airports of complying with the mandate would be small and well below the annual thresholds established in UMRA for intergovernmental and private-sector mandates ($77 million and $154 million, respectively in 2015, adjusted annually for inflation).
