This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure on March 24, 2021. From the Document: "H.R. 1921 would authorize the appropriation of $20 million annually over the 2022-2026 period for the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Lake Pontchartrain Basin Restoration Program. That program provides grants and technical assistance for projects that have been identified in a management plan approved under the EPA's National Estuary Program to improve the ecological health of the basin. In 2021, EPA received appropriations totaling $2 million to carry out the program. The bill also would require EPA to ensure the basin's management plan is revised at least every five years, expand the geographic definition of the basin, and allow EPA to use up to 5 percent of the appropriated funds to administer the program."
