S. 1204 would set conditions and procedures for the temporary closing of post offices, including required notifications to the public by the Postal Service. The agency is currently following procedures that are very similar to those that would be required by the bill; thus, CBO estimates that implementing S. 1204 would have no effect on spending by the Postal Service.
Enacting S. 1204 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 1204 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
S. 1204 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
