Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 3003, Comprehensive and Overdue Support for Troops of War Act of 2021
United States. Congressional Budget Office
From the document: "S. 3003 would increase disability compensation and health care benefits administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for veterans who have been exposed to toxic substances, materials, or environments during military service. In the future, veterans who developed conditions linked to toxic exposure also would receive those benefits. Survivors of veterans whose disabilities were caused by toxic exposure would receive additional compensation and access to health care under the bill. S. 3003 also would increase access to other VA benefits, including education assistance and home loan guarantees for some of those veterans and their dependents. Finally, the bill would require VA to conduct studies, prepare reports, and conduct outreach. In total, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates, enacting S. 3003 would increase direct spending by $225 billion and increase spending subject to appropriation by $188 billion over the 2022-2031 period."
