Alternate Title: CBO's Estimate of the Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Effects of H.R. 1280, the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2021

This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate of the Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Effects of H.R. 1280, the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2021 as posted on the website of the House Committee on Rules on February 25, 2021. From the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Document: "H.R. 1280 would make several changes to legal standards concerning the conduct of federal, state, and local law enforcement officials; CBO expects those changes would increase the number of criminal cases litigated in federal courts. Entities that violate the bill's provisions could be subject to criminal fines, which are recorded in the budget as revenues, deposited in the Crime Victims Fund, and later spent without further appropriation. Using information from the Department of Justice (DOJ), CBO estimates that enactment would increase revenues and the associated direct spending. Those increases would be insignificant in every year and would total about $1 million for both revenues and direct spending over the 2021-2031 period, with no net effect on the deficit."
