S. 1312 would reauthorize several programs within the Departments of Justice (DOJ), Health and Human Services (HHS), Labor, and State that combat trafficking in persons. The bill would specifically authorize the appropriation of $444 million over the 2018-2022 period for those purposes. In total, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost about $333 million over the 2018-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the specified and estimated amounts. The remaining amounts would spend in years after 2022.
Enacting the bill could affect direct spending and revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that any such effects would be insignificant in each year and over the 2018-2027 period.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 1312 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
S. 1312 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
