Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 3523, Cyber Intelligence Sharing Act [open pdf - 20KB]
This is a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) cost estimate for H.R. 3523. "H.R. 3523 would amend the National Security Act of 1947 to require the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to establish procedures to promote the sharing of information about cyberthreats between intelligence agencies and the private sector. The DNI also would be directed to establish guidelines for granting security clearances to employees of the private-sector entities with which the government shares such information. CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have a discretionary cost of $15 million over the 2012-2016 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts. Enacting H.R. 3523 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply."
