This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs on September 17, 2020. From the Document: "H.R. 7163 would require the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to develop a plan to respond to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests within timelines required by current law. VA would be required to meet those timeliness standards within five years of the bill's enactment. In that plan, which would be due within 180 days of the bill's enactment, VA must describe the technology and process improvements needed to improve response times. VA also would be required to report annually on its progress in implementing the plan and complying with FOIA response timelines."
