Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 135, Elijah E. Cummings Federal Employee Antidiscrimination Act of 2019 [open pdf - 34KB]
This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on November 6, 2019. From the Document:"Using information from the Office of Personnel Management and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] expects that most of the provisions in the act would build on the current policies and practices of the federal government. Currently, the federal government, through laws, regulations, and agency policies, prohibits discrimination in all phases of employment. CBO expects that agencies would incur costs to track and report discriminatory acts and to notify the public of any violations of antidiscrimination laws. Based on the costs of similar activities, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 135 would cost $1 million over the 2020-2024 period; such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds."
