ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 272, Congressional Budget Justification Transparency Act of 2021   [open pdf - 155KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on March 17, 2021. From the Document: "S. 272 would require federal agencies to publish more information online about federal spending and about the budget in general. All agencies would be required to post their annual budget justification documents online and to make those documents available to the public in a centralized, searchable database, as well as at each agency's website. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) would coordinate the effort. Because this information is already created by agencies and collected by OMB, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing the bill would cost less than $500,000 over the 2021-2026 period. Those costs would primarily be for administrative expenses at OMB and governmentwide to make the information available online."
