As reported by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on October 2, 2013
S. 1545 would reauthorize through 2018 certain recently expired provisions of foreign assistance programs to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis (commonly known as the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief or PEPFAR). CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have discretionary costs of $15 million over the 2014-2018 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to this legislation because it would not affect direct spending or revenues.
