Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 2779, Luke and Alex School Safety Act of 2019   [open pdf - 30KB]

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: "S. 2779 would require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in coordination with other federal agencies, to disseminate information on school safety measures to state and local education agencies. The bill would direct DHS to work with other federal agencies to identify existing grant programs that can support school safety improvements. The bill also would require DHS to establish an advisory board to provide external feedback and recommendations for additional school safety resources. On the basis of information from DHS about the costs of similar activities, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that staff salaries, travel costs, and other expenses would be about $1 million each year and $5 million over the 2020-2024 period; such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriations."
