Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 4884, COVID-19 Home Safety Act of 2020   [open pdf - 31KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation on December 15, 2020. From the Document: "S. 4884 would require the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to study and report to the Congress on how the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has affected the severity or frequency of injuries and deaths associated with consumer products used by families in the home. During the pandemic, injuries such as poisonings due to chemicals in cleaning supplies could increase as people use more of those supplies and spend more time at home. The reports would be required every three months, through the end of the Public Health Emergency (PHE) period. The bill also would direct CPSC to assess its operations and enforcement actions during the PHE, coordinate with public media outlets to distribute information to improve home safety, and recommend improvements to the Commission's PHE response capacity."
