"On August 6, 2019, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for H.R. 2035, the Lifespan Respite Care Reauthorization Act of 2019, as passed by the House of Representatives on July 24, 2019. That act would authorize appropriations totaling $200 million over the 2020-2024 period for lifespan respite care programs and S. 995 would authorize a total of $46 million. CBO’s cost estimates of the two pieces of legislation reflect those differences in the authorized amounts. The cost estimate for S. 995 also reflects enactment of the continuing resolution for 2020."
