H.R. 6391 would authorize appropriations for the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) for fiscal years 2019 through 2023. The bill also would amend several of the laws governing the MSPB, including requiring employees to pay a filing fee when making MSPB appeals.
CBO estimates that implementing this legislation would cost $231 million over the 2019-2023 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts.
Enacting H.R. 6391 also would increase revenues by $10 million over the 2019-2028 period; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. H.R. 6391 would not affect direct spending.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 6391 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
H.R. 6391 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
