H.R. 3987, Small Business Protection Act of 2012

H.R. 3987 would limit the authority of the Small Business Administration (SBA) to set certain size standards for the purpose of establishing eligibility for various federal assistance programs. The bill also would broaden the amount of information provided to the public when the SBA proposes or modifies a size standard.

Based on information from the SBA, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3987 would cost $12 million over the 2013-2017 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 3987 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

H.R. 3987 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) and would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal governments.
