H.R. 3288 would authorize the annual appropriation of $30 million over the 2019-2023 period for the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC). Under current law, $30 million is authorized to be appropriated each year for the NBRC through 2018.
Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3288 would cost $92 million over the 2019-2023 period. 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. 3288 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 3288 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
