Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 1865: Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017   [open pdf - 90KB]

"H.R. 1865 would broaden the coverage of current laws against sex trafficking. 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."
