H. Con. Res. 120 would authorize the Congressional Fire Services Institute and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to use the Capitol grounds on September 28, 2016, or on such a date as the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration may jointly designate. Because the sponsors would assume responsibility for all expenses and liabilities associated with the event, CBO estimates that passage of H. Con. Res. 120 would have no significant cost to the federal government. Because final passage of the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that H. Con. Res. 120 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2027.
