Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 2595: Strengthening the Department of Homeland Security Secure Mail Initiative Act [open pdf - 90KB]
"U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) mails about 4 million documents each year to applicants for immigration services, including employment authorization, permanent residence, and travel authorization. H.R. 2595 would require CIS, within one year of enactment, to allow applicants to use certain mail security services offered by the Postal Service (USPS) when they receive mail from CIS. Persons who choose such services would pay an additional fee that would be set by CIS and intended to recover the full costs associated with providing the service, including CIS administrative costs and USPS charges for those services."
