ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 739, Cyber Diplomacy Act of 2019   [open pdf - 135KB]

From the Document: "H.R. 739 would codify the roles and responsibilities of an existing office of the Department of State that advances U.S. interests in cyberspace and promotes open, reliable, and secure communications technology. The bill also would require the department to report to the Congress on the following issues: [1] Executive agreements on cyberspace policy made with other countries; [2] Updates to an existing international policy on cyberspace; and [3] Efforts by foreign governments to restrict freedom of expression through electronic means. The department indicated that implementing H.R. 739 would not change the current policies and practices of the office and thus would not increase its costs."
