ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 4785: DHS Stop Asset and Vehicle Excess Act   [open pdf - 95KB]

"H.R. 4785 would direct the Under Secretary of Management for the Department ofHomeland Security (DHS) to oversee and manage vehicle fleets throughout thedepartment. Currently, agencies within DHS (such as Customs and Border Protection)largely manage their own fleets. The bill would require the Under Secretary to monitorcompliance with federal laws and regulations related to the use of government vehicles,develop a methodology to determine optimal fleet size, and approve vehicle leases andacquisitions. H.R. 4785 also would require DHS agencies to report data on vehicle usequarterly and submit fleet management plans, including cost-benefit analyses, annually tothe Under Secretary. [...] CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that enacting H.R. 4785 would not increase net direct spending oron-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2027."
