H.R. 3731 would remove certain limits on premium pay earned by employees of the Secret Service who either provided protective services in calendar year 2017 or will provide them in 2018. The bill’s provisions would not apply to years after 2018. CBO estimates that enacting the bill would increase direct spending by $10 million in fiscal year 2018. We also estimate that implementing the bill would increase spending subject to appropriation by about $7 million in fiscal year 2018 and $3 million in fiscal year 2019.
Because enacting H.R. 3731 would affect direct spending, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Enacting the bill would not affect revenues.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 3731 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 3731 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
