Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 359, Enhancing Grid Security Through Public-Private Partnerships Act [open pdf - 166KB]
This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on July 17, 2019. From the Document: "H.R. 359 would direct the Department of Energy (DOE) to establish a program to collaborate with federal and state agencies and interested parties in the private sector to assess and improve the physical security and cybersecurity of electric utilities. The bill would authorize DOE to provide guidance, training, and technical assistance to electric utilities and would specify program reporting and administrative requirements. Using information from DOE, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 359 would not significantly affect the federal budget because the activities authorized by the bill are consistent with DOE's existing efforts related to energy infrastructure security."
