As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary on March 29, 2012
S. 2159 would authorize the appropriation of $100 million for each of fiscal years 2013 through 2017 to the Office of National Drug Control Policy for grants to reduce substance abuse among youth. In addition, S. 2159 would authorize the appropriation of $2 million annually over the 2013-2017 period for grants to the National Community Anti-Drug Coalition Institute. (In 2012 $92 million was appropriated for those programs.) Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $500 million over the 2013-2017 period. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
S. 2159 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
