As ordered reported by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on December 11, 2013
H.R. 3683 would reauthorize a grant program, administered by the Department of Energy (DOE), which supports joint ventures between U.S. and Israeli entities aimed at promoting certain energy-related technologies. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3683 would cost $10 million over the 2015-2019 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts. Because enacting the legislation could affect net direct spending, pay-as-you-go procedures apply, however, CBO estimates that any such effects would be negligible. H.R. 3683 would not affect revenues.
H.R. 3683 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
