Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 1870, Supporting At-Risk Children Act   [open pdf - 39KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as reported by the Senate Committee on Finance on December 19, 2013. From the Summary: "S. 1870 would make numerous changes to programs for children and families within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Among those changes, the bill would extend funding for Family Connection Grants, impose new placement and reporting rules in foster care, and require states to provide services so that unmarried parents could establish visitation agreements when setting up their child-support order. CBO estimates that enacting the bill would increase direct spending by $487 million over the 2014-2024 period; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply to the bill. Enacting S. 1870 would not affect revenues. In addition, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have a discretionary cost of $125 million over the 2014-2024 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts."
