Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 1073, Nuclear Terrorism Conventions Implementation and Safety of Maritime Navigation Act of 2013   [open pdf - 15KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on March 14, 2013. From the Document: "CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 1073 would have no significant cost to the federal government. Enacting the bill could affect direct spending and revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that any effects would be insignificant for each year. H.R. 1073 would establish new federal crimes relating to acts of violence committed on or against ships or maritime fixed platforms and criminal acts involving the use of nuclear materials. As a result, the government might be able to pursue cases that it otherwise would not be able to prosecute. CBO expects that H.R. 1073 would apply to a relatively small number of additional offenders, however, so any increase in costs for law enforcement, court proceedings, or prison operations would not be significant. Any such costs would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds."
