H.R. 4755 would direct the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to continue its support of programs designed to encourage women and girls to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and pursue careers in aerospace. The act would require NASA to report to the Congress regarding its existing activities surrounding such programs and to identify how NASA might develop a program to engage female students in kindergarten through high school studying science, mathematics, and technological subjects with current and retired astronauts, scientists, engineers, and innovators.
Because NASA is already undertaking such efforts, CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would have no significant cost. Enacting H.R. 4755 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 4755 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2027.
H.R. 4755 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.
