Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 2611: A bill to amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to authorize the Securing the Cities Initiative of the Department of Homeland Security, and for other purposes [open pdf - 20KB]
"H.R. 2611 would authorize funding for fiscal year 2010 and subsequent years for the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to support the Securing the Cities Initiative, a program to detect illicit nuclear and radiological material in urban areas. For each city that participated in the program in 2009, the bill would authorize the appropriation of $40 million for fiscal year 2010, $20 million for 2011, and at least $10 million for each subsequent year. H.R. 2611 also would authorize the appropriation of such sums as may be necessary for each fiscal year to implement this program in at least two new areas. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 2611 would cost $206 million over the 2010- 2014 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues. H.R. 2611 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments."
