Using information from affected federal agencies, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing the bill would cost about $13 billion over the 2019-2023 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, included funding of about $3 billion in fiscal year 2018 for similar activities."
