ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 4821, Combating the Persecution of Religious Groups in China Act   [open pdf - 156KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office [CBO] Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the House Committee on Foreign Affairs on February 9, 2022. From the Document: "H.R. 4821 states that it is the policy of the United States to: [1] Consider the persecution of Christians or other religious minorities by senior Chinese government officials to be a gross violation of human rights; [2] Ensure that trade negotiations with China include conditions on protecting religious freedom; and [3] Continue to voice concerns about the lack of religious freedom in that country. The Administration has imposed sanctions on Chinese people and entities who are responsible for violating human rights and denying religious freedom. Because H.R. 4821 does not require the Administration to broaden or impose new sanctions, CBO expects that enacting the bill would not lead the Administration to impose sanctions or penalties that it would not otherwise impose under current law. Therefore, implementing H.R. 4821 would not affect the federal budget, CBO estimates."
