S. 254 would authorize, through 2022, a grant program to preserve Native American languages. CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would cost $53 million over the 2017-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts.
Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 254 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
S. 254 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
