S. 1163 would authorize, through 2020, a grant program to preserve Native American languages. CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would cost $50 million over the 2017-2021 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts.
Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates that enacting S. 1163 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2027.
S. 1163 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
