ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 378, Court Security Improvement Act of 2007   [open pdf - 24KB]

From the Summary: "S. 378 would authorize the appropriation of $160 million over the 2008-2011 period to provide additional staff to the U.S. Marshals Service and to provide grants to state and local governments to improve court security and protect victims and witnesses. Additionally, the bill would reauthorize operations of the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) through fiscal year 2011. S. 378 also would amend sentencing requirements for crimes committed against certain federal employees and their families. Moreover, the bill would renew provisions of law preventing the release of financial information if disclosure could endanger federal judges or their families. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing S. 378 would cost $30 million in 2008 and $179 million over the 2008-2012 period, subject to the appropriation of the authorized and necessary amounts. The bill also would direct the Administrative Office of the United States Courts (AOUSC) to pay increases in the cost of life insurance premiums that were implemented after 1999 for certain judges. CBO estimates that enacting this provision would increase direct spending by about $1 million over the 2008-2017 period. Other provisions would have no significant impact on direct spending or revenues. S. 378 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA); any costs to state, local, or tribal governments would be incurred voluntarily as a condition of receiving federal assistance."
