H.R. 3875 requires GAO to submit a report to Congress about DHS’ research and development work on chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive threats within two years of the bill’s implementation, CBO said Monday.
The bill also calls for the establishment of the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives Office within DHS.
DHS plans to integrate existing offices to create the new office mandated under the legislation.
The bill’s implementation also has no impact on net direct spending and on-budget deficits, according to CBO.
