This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation on November 13, 2019. From the Document: "S. 1069 would direct the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to continue implementing the agency's Digital Coast Program. [...] The bill would authorize the appropriation $4 million annually over the 2020-2024 period for NOAA to implement the program. In 2019, NOAA used $2 million of appropriated funds to carry out the program. Because CBO [Congressional Budget Office] scores continuing resolutions on an annualized basis, in 2020, CBO assumes that the NOAA will allocate the same amount from funds made available under the current continuing resolution (Public Law 116-59). As a result, CBO estimates that S. 1069 would authorize an increase in spending subject to appropriation in 2020 of $2 million, the difference between the authorized amount and the annualized amount under the continuing resolution. Based on historical spending patterns for the affected grants, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $16 million over the 2020-2024 period and $2 million after 2024 (see Table 1)."
