S. 3367 would require various agencies within the Department of Transportation (DOT) to make numerous reports that they already produce for the Congress publicly available on DOT’s website. The bill also would require the Federal Rail Administration (FRA) within DOT to complete a new analysis on the use of federal funds for eliminating hazards where highways and railroads intersect.
Using information from DOT, CBO estimates that the department would incur costs of about $50,000 to make the reports available on its website. CBO also estimates that it would cost FRA about $100,000 a year for the equivalent of one full-time employee to produce the required report. As a result, CBO estimates that enacting S. 3367 would have no significant cost over the 2019-2023 period.
Enacting S. 3367 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting S. 3367 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
S. 3367 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
