CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $15 million over the 2019-2023 period. Such spending would be subject to appropriation.
Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates that enacting S. 1942 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029.
S. 1942 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
