Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 178, Uighur Intervention and Global Humanitarian Unified Response Act of 2019   [open pdf - 38KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on October 30, 2019. From the Document: "The President has the authority to impose similar sanctions under the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act (Public Law 114-328). By requiring such sanctions, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that enacting S. 178 would increase the number of people who would be denied visas by the Department of State and the number who would be subject to civil or criminal penalties. Most visa fees are retained by the department and spent without further appropriation, but some fees are deposited in the Treasury as revenues. Penalties also are recorded as revenues, and a portion of those penalties can be spent without further appropriation. Because CBO expects that very few additional people would be affected, CBO estimates that enacting S. 178 would have insignificant effects on both revenues and direct spending."
