This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on October 5, 2021. From the Document: "H.R. 2915 would require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to contract with manufacturers and suppliers that are domestic small businesses for at least one-third of spending for uniforms and certain protective gear for designated offices and agencies within the department. The requirement would apply to any contracts signed six months after the bill's enactment. H.R. 2915 also would require DHS to brief the Congress annually about the failure of any vendors to meet delivery deadlines for covered items. It also would require a report within 180 days of enactment about how DHS could acquire additional items from domestic sources and a study within 18 months of enactment on the adequacy of DHS uniform allowances."
