Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Effects of S. 1790, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020   [open pdf - 172KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as posted on the website of the House Committee on Rules on December 9, 2019. From the Document: "The pay-as-you-go effects for S. 1790 primarily arise from three sources. Section 622 would increase the annuities that spouses of deceased military retirees receive under the Survivor Benefit Plan. That provision would increase direct spending by $4.7 billion. Section 1219 would increase by 4,000 the number of special immigrant visas available to Afghans who worked for the U.S. government in Afghanistan. That provision would increase direct spending by nearly $0.5 billion. Section 731 would allow individuals to file claims against the U.S. government for damages relating to the personal injury or death of a member of the U.S. Armed Forces arising from medical malpractice that occurs in military treatment facilities. That provision would cost about $0.3 billion, CBO estimates. Several other provisions would have smaller effects on direct spending and revenues. CBO estimates that enacting S. 1790 would increase on-budget deficits by more than $5 billion in each of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2030."
