ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 2473: Put Trafficking Victims First Act of 2017   [open pdf - 14KB]

"H.R. 2473 would require the Department of Justice (DOJ), within three years of enactment, to undertake several activities to assist victims of trafficking. DOJ would have to initiate pilot programs to test methods of collecting data on sex and labor trafficking, survey trafficking victims who have used services available to them, and report to the Congress on certain issues related to human trafficking. Based on information from DOJ, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing the act would cost about $2 million over the 2018-2020 period for additional DOJ programs; such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds. 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. 2473 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028."
