ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 6062, Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program Reauthorization Act of 2012   [open pdf - 20KB]

From the Summary: "H.R. 6062 would authorize the appropriation of $800 million annually over the 2013-2017 period for the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant program in the Department of Justice. (In 2012, the Congress appropriated $470 million for such grants, which support criminal justice systems at the state, local, and tribal level.) Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 6062 would cost about $2.7 billion over the 2013-2017 period and $1.3 billion in subsequent years. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues. H.R. 6062 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA)."
