This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate on S. 2218, as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on May 16, 2012. From the Summary: "S. 2218 would reauthorize the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) through fiscal year 2017. Under current law, funding is authorized through 2012. Based on historical spending patterns, CBO estimates that implementing this legislation would cost about $350 million over the 2013-2017 period, assuming appropriation of the specified amounts. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues. S. 2218 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA)."
