H.R. 5977 would require the Department of Transportation (DOT) to notify certain Congressional committees at least three days before announcing the award of certain funds to grantees. Under current practice, DOT already informs other committees of Congress about such grants and awards. As a result, CBO estimates that any additional communications costs incurred by the department would not be significant.
Enacting H.R. 5977 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 5977 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2027.
H.R. 5977 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.
