ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 180, National Blue Alert Act of 2013   [open pdf - 14KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on May 7, 2013. From the Document: "H.R. 180 would require the Department of Justice (DOJ) to establish and promote a national communications network to issue alerts (that would be known as 'blue alerts') when a law enforcement officer is killed or seriously injured. Under the bill's provisions, the department would develop guidelines and protocols for state and local governments that participate in the program and provide assistance as necessary to those participants. Based on the costs of similar activities, CBO estimates that it would cost about $1 million annually from appropriated funds for DOJ to establish and administer the new program. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply."
