S. 1893 would reauthorize and make several changes to grant programs administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency (SAMHSA) related to awareness, identification, and prevention of substance abuse and mental illness. The bill would also promote the expansion of a reporting system on violent deaths.
CBO estimates that implementing S. 1893 would cost $574 million over the 2016-2020 period, assuming appropriation of the specified and necessary amounts. Enacting S. 1893 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to the bill.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 1893 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2026.
S. 1893 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
