H.R. 3859 would amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 by making technical corrections to that act, including striking provisions related to obsolete offices and outdated reporting requirements. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3859 would have no significant cost to the federal government.
Because enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 3859 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2026.
H.R. 3859 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.
