ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 2213: Anti-Border Corruption Reauthorization Act of 2017   [open pdf - 18KB]

"Current law requires U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to administer polygraph examinations to nearly all applicants for law enforcement positions. H.R. [House Bill] 2213 would broaden the criteria for waiving the polygraph requirement for certain applicants. Based on information from CBP, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing the bill would have no significant effect on the agency's spending to vet applicants for law enforcement positions, because the expanded exemption would probably not affect very many people. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 2213 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028."
