Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 3495, Kids in Disasters Well-being, Safety, and Health Act of 2007 [open pdf - 13KB]
"H.R. 3495 would authorize the appropriation of $4 million to establish the National Commission on Children and Disasters. The commission would be responsible for conducting a comprehensive study on the needs of children in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from major disasters and emergencies. Based on the historical spending patterns of similar-sized commissions, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 3495 would cost $1 million in 2008 and $4 million over the 2008-2010 period, subject to appropriation of the specified amounts. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues. H.R. 3495 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments."
