Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 1370: Department of Homeland Security Blue Campaign Authorization Act of 2017   [open pdf - 86KB]

"H.R. 1370 would authorize the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to implement a program to combat human trafficking; this program would be known as the Blue Campaign. (DHS currently carries out a similar program, which includes activities to raise awareness of human trafficking and training for law enforcement personnel.) H.R. 1370 would authorize the appropriation of $819,000 for each of fiscal years 2018 through 2022 for the campaign. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing the act would cost about $4 million over the 2018-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts. 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. 1370 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028. H.R. 1370 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments."
