Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 473, Trusted Traveler Reconsideration and Restoration Act of 2021   [open pdf - 157KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on July 14, 2021. From the Document: "H.R. 473 would require the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to conduct a review of the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) trusted traveler programs, which expedite security screenings at airports. Also, H.R. 473 would, for cases where membership in a trusted traveler program was revoked in error, direct DHS to extend the period of active enrollment by the period of revocation for people who re-enroll in the program. Using information from publicly available information, CBO expects that the number of erroneous revocations would be small, and DHS has a system in place to appeal those revocations. Thus, CBO estimates that costs associated with investigating and re-enrolling individuals whose memberships were revoked in error would not be significant. Using information about the cost of other GAO studies, CBO estimates that the cost of completing the report would be insignificant. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 473 would cost less than $500,000 over the 2022-2026 period. Any spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds."
