The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated that the bill would save less than $10,000 a year because of lower procurement costs.

The Senate passed the bill through a unanimous consent agreement, sending it to the House for further action.

Sens. John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) and Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) are cosponsors of the bill, which was introduced last month.
