The Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Act of 2010 establishes budget-reporting and enforcement procedures for legislation affecting direct spending or revenues. The net changes in outlaysthat are subject to those procedures are shown here.
H.R. 1652 would direct revenues collected from deferred prosecution and non-prosecution agreements to be deposited into the Crime Victims Fund and spent on Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) programs. (Those revenues are already being collected under current law.) CBO estimates the deposits would create about $1 billion in new budget authority each year and would increase direct spending by $7.5 billion over the 2021-2031 period. The legislation also would make changes to the allocation of VOCA grants and allow waivers of some state matching requirements under VOCA; CBO estimates those provisions would not affect direct spending or revenues.
