Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 3342: Sanctioning Hizballah's Illicit Use of Civilians as Defenseless Shields Act   [open pdf - 89KB]

"H.R. 3342 would require the President to identify and impose sanctions on foreign people or entities affiliated with Hizballah that he determines have used civilians as human shields or have provided, tried to provide, or facilitated the provision of material support to that terrorist group. The bill also would require the President to provide to the Congress a list of people or entities so identified along with periodic updates. Finally, the bill describes several people and entities and would require the President to determine and report to the Congress if they meet the criteria to be sanctioned. Based on information from the Administration on the cost of similar requirements, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that administering the sanctions and implementing the reporting requirements would cost less than $500,000 annually and would total $1 million over the 2018-2022 period, subject to the availability of appropriated funds."
