As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs on July 24, 2013
S. 131 would expand the types and availability of infertility treatment provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost $578 million over the 2014-2018 period, assuming appropriation of the estimated amounts. Enacting S. 131 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you go procedures do not apply.
S. 131 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA).
