ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 385, Interoperable Emergency Communications Act   [open pdf - 24KB]

From the Summary: "S. 385 would establish a pilot program to award grants to emergency medical care facilities to improve their emergency communication systems. The bill also would provide additional guidance to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) for awarding grants to public safety agencies to improve the interoperability of emergency communication systems. Assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing the provisions of S. 385 would cost about $1million in 2008 and $20 million over the 2008-2012 period. S. 385 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."
