This is a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) cost estimate for S. 1347 . From the document: "CBO estimates that implementing S. 1347 would have no significant net effect on the federal budget over the 2015-2019 period. The legislation would limit to $500,000 the amount any federal agency could spend to attend or host a single conference. Under the bill, no more than 50 federal employees working for the same department and stationed in the United States would be allowed to attend the same conference held outside of the United States. In addition, the legislation would require each agency to post quarterly reports on its website containing detailed information about all conferences hosted or attended by their employees that involve expenses of $50,000 or more."
