Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 1312, Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2017 [open pdf - 122KB]
This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as reported by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary on August 1, 2017. From the Document: "S. 1312 would reauthorize several programs within the Departments of Justice (DOJ), Health and Human Services (HHS), Labor, and State that combat trafficking in persons. The bill would specifically authorize the appropriation of $444 million over the 2018-2022 period for those purposes. In total, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing the bill would cost about $333 million over the 2018-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the specified and estimated amounts. The remaining amounts would spend in years after 2022. Enacting the bill could affect direct spending and revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that any such effects would be insignificant in each year and over the 2018-2027 period."
