Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 4203: Combat Online Predators Act   [open pdf - 84KB]

"H.R. 4203 would add five years to the maximum prison sentence for stalking minors. As a result, new offenders could face longer prison sentences. The bill would require the Department of Justice (DOJ) to report to the Congress on federal, state, tribal, and local efforts to enforce laws related to stalking. Based on its analysis of similar DOJ tasks, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing the bill would cost less than $500,000 in 2018. CBO expects that any costs to the federal prison system resulting from longer sentences would be incurred after 2022; any such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds."
