H.R. 5326 would make technical changes to, but not substantively alter, provisions of title 14 and title 46 of the United States Code, which govern the authority of the Coast Guard and other agencies involved in maritime transportation.
Using information from the Coast Guard, CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 5326 would have no significant effect on the federal budget. The bill would not impose any new requirements or duties on agencies involved with maritime transportation or shipping. As a result, CBO expects that any change in federal costs—which would be subject to appropriation—would be negligible.
Enacting H.R. 5326 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 5326 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 5326 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
