Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 5102, Flights for Freedom Act   [open pdf - 151KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on September 30, 2021. From the Document: "H.R. 5102 would prohibit the Department of State from recovering costs associated with evacuating and repatriating U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents who remain in Afghanistan as of the date of enactment of the bill. Under current law, when the federal government evacuates people from a foreign country because of war, unrest, or a natural disaster, the department is required to recoup its costs from those evacuees to the maximum extent practicable. However, in the case of evacuations from Afghanistan the department is not seeking reimbursement; therefore, CBO estimates that enacting the bill would not affect the federal budget"
