Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 7311, Countering Malign Russian Activities in Africa Act [open pdf - 155KB]
From the Document: "H.R. 7311 would direct the Department of State, within 90 days of the bill's enactment, to develop a strategy for countering Russian efforts to undermine democratic institutions in Africa. The bill would require the Secretary of State to report on the implementation of the plan on an annual basis for the following five years beginning 180 days after enactment of H.R. 7311. The bill also would direct the agency to provide, in each annual report, a survey of similar initiatives undertaken by foreign entities and detailed intelligence on the identity of local actors complicit in Russian activities. On the basis of information about the costs of similar activities, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 7311 would cost less than $500,000 over the 2022-2026 period; such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds."
