H.R. 2825 would authorize the appropriation of nearly $2.7 billion over the 2019-2023 period for programs in the Department of Homeland Security, mostly for activities carried out by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In addition, CBO estimates, the act would effectively authorize the appropriation of about $1.2 billion over the five-year period, mostly for other FEMA programs.
Assuming appropriation of the authorized and estimated amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 2825 would cost about $3.2 billion over the 2019-2023 period. Enacting the legislation would affect direct spending; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, we estimate that those effects would be insignificant in each year. The act would not affect revenues.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 2825 would not significantly increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 2825 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
