Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 2200: Transportation Security Administration Authorization Act   [open pdf - 40KB]

"H.R. 2200 would authorize gross appropriations totaling $15.7 billion over the 2010-2011 period for activities of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which is responsible for security of all modes of public transportation in the United States. Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 2200 would increase net discretionary spending by $3.0 billion in 2010 and $11.4 billion over the 2010-2014 period. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending. H.R. 2200 could increase revenues from civil monetary penalties for violations of federal regulations related to the transportation of certain hazardous materials, but CBO estimates that any such increased would be negligible. H.R. 2200 contains intergovernmental and private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) because it would impose new planning requirements on both public and private airports. The bill also would impose private-sector mandates on U.S. air carriers and motor vehicle operators that transport certain materials."
