ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 2346, Fishery Failures: Urgently Needed Disaster Declarations Act   [open pdf - 31KB]

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: "Under current law, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) may provide financial assistance to commercial fisheries that experience economic hardship because of natural or manmade disasters. S. 2346 would explicitly define terms that are used to determine if a fishery is eligible for assistance. The bill also would require NOAA to adhere to a faster application review process and to fulfill additional reporting requirements. Finally, S. 2346 would require the Government Accountability Office to report to the Congress on efforts by the Regional Fishery Management Councils, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, and the National Marine Fisheries Service to prepare and adapt to climate change."
