Congressional Budget Office has score HR 5707, Postal Service Financial Improvement Act of 2016


This bill is to move postal investment to privately operated investment funds, instead of Treasury instruments.

CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 5707 would cost about $4.4 billion over the 2017-2026 period because funds from a government account would be transferred to a privately operated investment fund. Pay-as-you-go procedures apply because that transfer would increase direct spending. Enacting the bill would not affect revenues.
