This is the September 9, 2019 Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on June 19, 2019. From the Document: "H.R. 3256 would extend the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program through May 1, 2025, and make several other changes to the program; the authority to carry out the current program will expire in April 2020. In total, CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 3256 would cost $372 million over the 2020-2024 period; such spending would be subject to the appropriation of the estimated amounts (see Table 1). Another $77 million would be spent after 2024 to pay for the costs of the program until its expiration. In addition, the bill would increase revenues by less than $500,000 over the 2020-2029 period, CBO estimates."
