Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 1684: Managing Arson Through Criminal History Act of 2010 [open pdf - 20KB]
"S. 1684 would direct the Department of Justice (DOJ) to make grants to states and other jurisdictions to establish registration programs for persons convicted of arson or bombing. The bill also would direct DOJ to establish a national arsonist and bomber registry and Web site. Assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO estimates that implementing S. 1684 would cost $17 million over the 2011-2015 period. This legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. S. 1684 would impose intergovernmental mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) on state and tribal governments. CBO estimates that the cost of complying with those mandates would fall well below the annual threshold established in UMRA for intergovernmental mandates ($70 million in 2010, adjusted annually for inflation). S. 1684 contains no private-sector mandates as defined in UMRA."
