H.R. 5730 would require the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to develop programs to test and evaluate advanced screening technologies related to the agency’s mission. Using information from TSA, CBO expects that meeting the bill’s requirements would not add significantly to the cost of existing and similar activities related to transportation security. CBO estimates that any change in federal spending under the bill—which would be subject to appropriation—would total less than $500,000 annually.
Enacting H.R. 5730 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that H.R. 5730 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 5730 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
