S. 2107 would authorize the appropriation of specific amounts for each year over the 2020-2022 period totaling $222 million for Customs and Border Protection. The funds would be used to hire agriculture specialists and other personnel to improve the comprehensiveness of inspections of food and agricultural goods entering the United States. Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $222 million over the 2020-2024 period. Estimated outlays are based on historical spending patterns for this program.
