H.R. 235, the Veteran Emergency Medical Technician Support Act of 2013

Cost Estimate
January 31, 2013

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on January 22, 2013

H.R. 235 would authorize grants to states for streamlining state certification and licensing requirements for veterans to become licensed or certified emergency medical technicians (EMT).

The bill would authorize the appropriation of $1 million and CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $1 million over the 2014-2018 period, assuming the appropriation of the authorized amount. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.

The bill contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
