On May 16, 2018, the House Committee on Ways and Means ordered seven bills to be reported related to the nation’s response to the opioid epidemic. Because the bills are related, CBO is publishing a single comprehensive document that includes estimates for each piece of legislation.
CBO has determined that provisions in H.R. 5774 would increase authorization levels, but has not completed estimates of amounts. Any spending that would result from those authorizations would be subject to future appropriation action.
