H.R. 4377 would authorize the appropriation of funds to support construction of and upgrades to research equipment and facilities administered by the Department of Energy’s Office of Science. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 4377 would cost about $1.5 billion over the 2018-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts.
Enacting H.R. 4377 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 4377 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 4377 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
