S. 1014, Youth Sports Concussion Act

Cost Estimate
May 12, 2014

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation on April 9, 2014

S. 1014 would prohibit importers and sellers of athletic equipment from making deceptive claims about the safety of that equipment. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) would be directed to write regulations to enforce the new prohibition.

Based on information from the FTC, CBO estimates that the cost of implementing S. 1014 would not be significant because the agency is already taking action to enforce such a prohibition under its general authority. Enacting S. 1014 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

S. 1014 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
