H.R. 3283, Integrated Public Alert and Warning System Modernization Act of 2014

Cost Estimate
May 9, 2014

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on April 30, 2014

H.R. 3283 would authorize appropriations totaling $40 million over the 2015-2017 period for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to modernize the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS). The bill also would establish a committee to develop and submit recommendations for improving the system. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3283 would cost $38 million over the next five years, assuming appropriation of the specified amounts.

Enacting this legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 3283 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.
