Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 2980, Cybersecurity Vulnerability Remediation Act   [open pdf - 163KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on May 18, 2021. From the Document: "H.R. 2980 would authorize the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to disseminate information to the public about vulnerabilities in the software and hardware of information systems. The bill would authorize CISA to establish an award program to encourage researchers to disclose such vulnerabilities to the agency. The bill also would require CISA to assess and report to the Congress on the effectiveness of its vulnerability disclosure programs. [...] CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 2980 would cost $55 million over the 2021-2026 period. CBO also estimates that providing the required report to the Congress would cost less than $500,000; such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriations."
