ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 506: Preventing Crimes Against Veterans Act of 2017   [open pdf - 86KB]

"H.R. 506 would establish a new federal crime against defrauding individuals of veterans' benefits. As a result, the government might be able to pursue cases that it otherwise would not be able to prosecute. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] expects that the bill would apply to a relatively small number of offenders, however, so any increase in costs for law enforcement, court proceedings, or prison operations would not be significant. Any such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds."
