CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 4376 would cost $836 million over the 2018-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts.
Enacting H.R 4376 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 4376 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 4376 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
