H.R. 2200 would reauthorize several programs within the Departments of Justice (DOJ), Health and Human Services (HHS), Homeland Security (DHS), Labor, and State, and the U.S Agency for International Development that combat trafficking in persons. The bill would specifically authorize the appropriation of $129 million in 2018 and $135 million for each of fiscal years 2019, 2020, and 2021 for those purposes. In total, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost almost $450 million over the 2018-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized and necessary amounts. The remaining amounts would spend in years after 2022.
CBO and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) estimate that enacting H.R. 2200 would decrease revenues by $13 million over the 2018-2027 period but would have insignificant effects on direct spending. Pay-as-you-go procedures apply because enacting the legislation would affect direct spending and revenues.
CBO and JCT estimate that enacting the legislation would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits by more than $5 billion in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
CBO has determined that the nontax provisions of H.R. 2200 contain no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
