ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 4467, Strengthening Aviation Security Act of 2018   [open pdf - 86KB]

From the Document: "The Federal Air Marshal Service (FAMS), part of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), promotes the safety of the U.S. aviation system, particularly by protecting airline passengers and crew members against the risk of criminal and terrorist violence. H.R. 4467 would require FAMS to use a risk-based strategy when allocating resources between international and domestic flights, and to report to the Congress on its compliance with that requirement. Using information from TSA, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 4467 would not significantly affect the federal budget. Because the act's requirements are consistent with existing administrative policy, CBO expects that any change in federal costs to meet them would be negligible. Such spending would be subject to appropriation. Enacting H.R 4467 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply."
