ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 931: Firefighter Cancer Registry Act of 2017   [open pdf - 85KB]

"H.R. 931 would require the Secretary of Health and Human Services, through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to develop and maintain a voluntary registry to monitor cancer incidence among firefighters. The registry would incorporate relevant information--including demographic characteristics, number and type of fire incidents attended, and health information relevant to cancer incidence--that would be linked to state cancer registries. H.R. 931 would authorize the appropriation of a total of $12.5 million for fiscal years 2018 through 2022 to carry out those activities. Based on historical spending for similar activities, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 931 would cost $10 million over the 2018-2022 period; the remainder would be spent in years after 2022. Enacting H.R. 931 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates that enacting the legislation would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028."
