H.R. 2800, Missing Alzheimer’s Disease Patient Alert Program Reauthorization Act of 2012

Cost Estimate
August 23, 2012

As ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary on August 1, 2012

H.R. 2800 would authorize the appropriation of $1 million annually over the 2013-2017 period for Department of Justice (DOJ) programs to locate missing persons with Alzheimer’s disease or similar conditions. Under the legislation, DOJ would provide grants to nonprofit organizations to run those programs. Assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 2800 would cost about $4 million over the 2013-2017 period. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.

H.R. 2800 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
