 Re: Preliminary Estimate of the Effects of H.R. 6201, the Families First
    Coronavirus Response Act


 Dear Madam Chairwoman:

 The Congressional Budget Office and the staff of the Joint Committee on
 Taxation (JCT) have completed a preliminary estimate of the budgetary
 effects of H.R. 6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which
 was enacted as Public Law 116-127 on March 18, 2020.1 CBO will provide
 a comprehensive analysis of this act and all related legislation when it
 publishes its updated baseline budget projections later this year.2

 On a preliminary basis, CBO and JCT estimate that the Families First
 Coronavirus Response Act will increase federal deficits by $192 billion
 over the 2020-2030 period, mostly in fiscal years 2020 and 2021 (see
 Table 1). That estimate includes:

    e A $2.4 billion increase in discretionary spending stemming from
       emergency supplemental appropriations,




 1. H.R. 6201 is appropriation legislation; however, division H of the law specifies that divisions
    B through G are to be treated as authorizing legislation. Division H also requires the exclusion
    of the estimated budgetary effects of those divisions from the pay-as-you-go scorecards
    maintained by the Senate and the Office of Management and Budget.
 2. In addition, within two weeks, CBO will publish a preliminary cost estimate for H.R. 748, the
    CARES Act (P.L. 116-136), which was signed into law on March 27, 2020.
