ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 1592, Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007   [open pdf - 17KB]

From the Summary: "H.R. 1592 would establish certain hate crimes as new federal offenses and would direct the Department of Justice (DOJ) to expand its data collection efforts relating to hate crimes. The bill also would authorize the appropriation of: [1] $5 million for each of fiscal years 2008 and 2009 for DOJ to make grants to state, local, and tribal governments to investigate and prosecute hate crimes; [2] Such sums as may be necessary for DOJ to make grants to state, local, and tribal governments to combat juvenile hate crimes; and [3] Such sums as may be necessary for fiscal years 2008 through 2010 for additional personnel in DOJ and the Department of the Treasury to prevent, investigate, and prosecute hate crimes. Assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 1592 would cost $20 million over the 2008-2012 period. This legislation could affect direct spending and receipts, but CBO estimates that any such effects would not be significant in any year."
