ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 5175, Pipeline and LNG Facility Cybersecurity Preparedness Act   [open pdf - 94KB]

From the Summary: "H.R. 5175 would direct the Department of Energy (DOE) to undertake a variety of activities aimed at improving the physical security and cybersecurity of pipelines and liquid natural gas (LNG) facilities. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 5175 would cost $86 million over the 2019-2023 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 5175 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2029. H.R. 5175 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA)."
