As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs on November 19, 2013
S. 932 would authorize appropriations in advance for certain programs within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). CBO estimates that implementing the bill would have a net cost of $30 billion over the 2014-2019 period, assuming appropriations action consistent with the bill. Enacting S. 932 would not affect direct spending or revenues, therefore, pay-as-you go procedures do not apply.
S. 932 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
