Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 2405: Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act of 2011   [open pdf - 24KB]

"H.R. 2405 would amend the Public Health Service Act to authorize funding for certain activities carried out by various agencies and offices within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that would support the readiness of the public health system to address public health and medical emergencies. Those activities are conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and several offices within the HHS Office of the Secretary. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $395 million in 2012 and $7.9 billion over the 2012-2016 period, assuming the appropriation of the authorized amounts. The funding authorized by H.R. 2405 is similar to the appropriation amounts enacted in recent years for the same activities. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues. H.R. 2405 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA)."
