H.R. 4581 would require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop effective practices for screening certain people entering the United States through the review of information provided by those travelers. The act would direct DHS to share those practices with certain other countries. DHS is currently carrying out activities similar to those that would be required by the act; thus, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 4581 would not significantly affect spending by DHS.
Enacting H.R. 4581 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 4581 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 4581 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
