H.R. 4673 would direct the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to establish an advisory committee to develop strategies to promote women’s involvement in aviation. The bill details the composition and duties of the proposed committee and would require it to prepare a report, within two years of enactment, that outlines a comprehensive plan for improving efforts to recruit, mentor, and retain women throughout the aviation industry. Under the bill, the advisory committee would disband after issuing that report.
Using information from the FAA about the administrative costs of other advisory committees, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 4673 would cost less than $500,000 a year over the next two years; such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds.
Enacting H.R. 4673 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 4673 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 4673 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
