Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 5351, National Emergency Management Reform and Enhancement Act of 2006   [open pdf - 35KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on May 17, 2006. From the Summary: "H.R. 5351 would reorganize the Preparedness Directorate, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and part of the Science and Technology Directorate into a new operational entity within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) called the Directorate of Emergency Management. In addition, the bill would authorize the appropriation of funds for various programs including emergency management grants to states, the Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS), the National Urban Search and Rescue Program, and the National Incident Management System (NIMS), among others. Assuming appropriation of the necessary funds, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 5351 would cost about $1.3 billion over the 2007-2011 period. Enacting this legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues.'"
