H.R. 2119 would authorize the appropriation of $100 million annually over the 2021-2025 period for the Department of Energy to award grants to state agencies for improving the energy efficiency of public buildings.
Based on historical spending for similar activities and assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 2119 would cost $235 million over the 2019-2024 period and $262 million after 2024. The costs of the legislation (detailed in Table 1) fall within budget function 270 (energy).
