H.R. 1033, American Battlefield Protection Program Amendments Act of 2013

Cost Estimate
January 14, 2014

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on November 21, 2013

H.R. 1033 would expand the American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) to include battlefields from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 and would authorize the appropriation of $10 million a year over the 2014-2018 period for this program. Assuming appropriation of the newly authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 1033 would cost $42 million over the 2014-2019 period. Enacting H.R. 1033 would not affect revenues or direct spending; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 1033 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.
