H.R. 4675 would authorize the appropriation of funds for the Department of Energy’s Office of Science to conduct basic research on low-dose radiation. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 4675 would cost $96 million over the 2018-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts.
Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 4675 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 4675 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
