H.R. 2658 would require the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International
Development (USAID) to provide humanitarian assistance to the Venezuelan people. It would extend through calendar year 2022 sanctions on people and entities responsible for violence and human rights abuses in Venezuela and would expand the scope of those sanctions to include people and entities that undermine democracy or that are involved in corruption. Finally, the bill would require the department to provide reports to the Congress.
CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 2658 would cost $55 million over the 2018-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the estimated amounts. In addition, enacting the bill would have insignificant effects on direct spending and revenues over the 2017-2027 period; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply.
