S. 2808 would amend the John F. Kennedy Center Act by authorizing appropriations for maintenance, repair, and security of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, as well as for capital projects for the center. Those activities were previously authorized through fiscal year 2014, and the Congress appropriated a total of $33 million in 2016 for those activities.
The bill would authorize additional appropriations totaling $154 million for fiscal years 2017 through 2020. Assuming appropriation of those amounts, CBO estimates that implementing S. 2808 would cost $146 million over the 2017-2021 period.
Because enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates that enacting the bill would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2027.
S. 2808 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
