ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 915: Jaime Zapata Border Enforcement Security Task Force Act   [open pdf - 16KB]

"H.R. 915 would authorize the appropriation of $10 million for each of fiscal years 2012 through 2016 for the Border Enforcement Security Task Force (BEST) program in the Department of Homeland Security. Under the BEST program, personnel from federal, state, local, tribal, and foreign law-enforcement agencies share information and carry out law-enforcement operations to combat criminal activity near United States borders. Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing the bill would cost $48 million over the 2012-2016 period. Enacting H.R. 915 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. H.R. 915 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."
