ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 695: Child Protection Improvements Act of 2017   [open pdf - 16KB]

"Under current law, organizations in certain states that provide services to youth, the elderly, and the disabled have limited access to information from national criminal background checks. (Those organizations typically review the backgrounds of prospective coaches, employees, and volunteers.) H.R. 695 would require the Department of Justice (DOJ) to establish a program to allow such organizations to obtain information from criminal background checks in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) fingerprint database. [...] Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that enacting H.R. 695 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028."
