S. 943 would amend the Johnson-O’Malley Act to require the Department of the Interior (DOI) to annually update its count of students who are eligible to be served by the Johnson-O’Malley (JOM) program. Under that program, DOI contracts with tribal organizations, states, and school districts to provide supplemental educational services for Indian students. Assuming appropriation of the estimated amounts, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $13 million over the 2018-2022 period.
Enacting S. 943 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 943 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
S. 943 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
