S. 2645 would direct the Department of Justice (DOJ) to make grants to five states to increase participation in programs to collect and dispose of unused prescription drugs. CBO estimates that implementing S. 2645 would cost $19 million over the 2019-2023 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary funds.
Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 2645 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
S. 2645 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
