Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 2485, Access to Congressionally Mandated Reports Act [open pdf - 157KB]
This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform on May 13, 2021. From the Document: "H.R. 2485 would require the Government Publishing Office (GPO) to establish and maintain a website for the public to obtain electronic copies of all Congressionally mandated reports. Under the bill, all federal agencies would be required to provide GPO with electronic copies of reports required by law each year. Using information from GPO and federal agencies that produce thousands of Congressionally mandated reports, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost about $400,000 a year or $2 million over the 2021-2026 period. Those costs primarily consist of the salaries and expenses associated with four employees who would establish and maintain the website. In addition, there would be some costs for the agencies to collect and submit reports in the required format. Any spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds"
