ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 5129, Global Food Security Reauthorization Act of 2018   [open pdf - 91KB]

From the Document: "H.R. 5129 would reauthorize programs at the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to provide humanitarian assistance following international disasters and to improve global food security. It would authorize appropriations of almost $3.8 billion each year in 2019 and 2020 for those programs (the same amount that was authorized for 2017 and 2018). On the basis of information from the department and USAID about spending patterns for the ongoing programs, and assuming appropriation of those specified amounts, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 5129 would cost $5.8 billion over the 2019-2023 period. (Most of the remainder would be spent in subsequent years.)"
