S. 1635 would make several changes to Department of State operations. In total, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have discretionary costs of almost $50 million over the 2017-2021 period, assuming appropriation of the estimated amounts.
Pay-as-you-go procedures apply to S. 1635 because enacting it would affect direct spending and revenues; however, CBO estimates that those effects would be insignificant. CBO estimates that enacting the legislation would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2027.
S. 1635 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.
