This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on March 11, 2020. From the Document: "Under current law, carrying out female genital mutilation (FGM) on someone below the age of 18 is a crime, punishable by fine or imprisonment. H.R. 6100 would expand the scope of punishable offenses related to FGM to include: [1] Attempting or conspiring to perform FGM, [2] Being the parent, guardian, or caretaker of a minor and facilitating or consenting to FGM of that minor, and [3] Transporting a minor for the purpose of subjecting her to FGM. H.R. 6100 also would prohibit, as a legal defense to prosecution for such crimes, the assertion by a defendant that FGM is required as a matter of religion, custom, tradition, or ritual."
