        may make grants to Indian tribes for the purpose of enhancing 
        participating tribes' capacity to address the safety of members 
        of Indian tribes. Each participating tribe shall exercise its 
        right of self-determination and self-governance in allocating 
        and using funds made available under the program. Each 
        participating tribe may use funds under the program to support 
        its specific tribally based response to increasing the safety 
        of members of Indian tribes. Grants under the program shall 
        support the governmental efforts identified by the Indian tribe 
        required according to its distinctive ways of life to increase 
        the safety of members of Indian tribes from crimes of sexual 
        assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, 
        kidnapping, and murder.
    ``(c) Disbursement.--Not later than 120 days after the receipt of 
an application under this section, the Attorney General, through the 
Director, shall--
            ``(1) disburse the appropriate sums provided for under this 
        section; or
            ``(2) inform the Indian tribe why the application does not 
        conform to the terms of the application requirements.
    ``(d) Required Procedures.--
            ``(1) Deadline to provide notice.--No later than 60 days 
        after receiving an appropriation of funds supporting the 
        program required by this section, Director shall--
                    ``(A) publish in the Federal Register notification 
                of--
                            ``(i) the availability of those funds to 
                        Indian tribes;
                            ``(ii) the total amount of funds available; 
                        and
                            ``(iii) the process by which tribes may 
                        participate in the program; and
                    ``(B) mail each Indian tribe a notification of the 
                matters required by subparagraph (A), together with 
                instructions on the process, copies of application 
                forms, and a notification of the deadline for 
                submission of an application.
            ``(2) Deadline to make funds available.--No later than 180 
        days after receiving an appropriation referred to in paragraph 
        (1), the Director shall distribute and make accessible those 
        funds to Indian tribes opting to participate in the program.
            ``(3) Formula.--The Director shall distribute those funds 
        according to the following formula: --
                    ``(A) 60 percent of the available funds shall be 
                allocated equally to all Indian tribes who exercise the 
                option to access the funds,
                    ``(B) The remaining 40 percent shall be allocated 
                to the same Indian tribes on a per capita basis, 
                according to the population residing in the respective 
                Indian tribe's service area.
            ``(4) Set-aside.--No later than 120 days after receiving an 
        appropriation referred to in paragraph (1), the Director shall 
        set aside not less than 5 percent and up to 7 percent of the 
        total amount of those funds for the purpose of entering into a 
        cooperative agreement or contract with one or more tribal 
        organizations with demonstrated expertise in providing training 
        and technical assistance to Indian tribes in addressing 
        domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and 
        stalking against members of Indian tribes, tribal law, and 
        customary pratices. At least one of the cooperative agreements 
        or contracts shall be entered into with a single tribal 
        organization to provide comprehensive technical assistance to 
        participating tribal governments. Such training and technical 
        assistance shall be specifically designed to address the unique 
        legal unique legal status, distinct cultural ways of life, and 
        geographic circumstances of the Indian tribes receiving funds 
        under the program.
    ``(e) Recipient Requirements.--
            ``(1) In general.--Indian tribes may receive funds under 
        the program required by this section as individual tribes or as 
        a consortium of tribes.
            ``(2) Subgrants and other arrangements.--Participating 
        tribes may make subgrants or enter into contracts or 
        cooperative agreements with the funds under the program to 
        enhance the safety of, and end domestic violence, dating 
        violence, sexual assault, and stalking against, members of 
        Indian tribes.
            ``(3) Set aside.--Participating tribes must set aside no 
        less than 50 percent of their total allocation under this 
        section for tribally specific domestic violence, dating 
        violence, sexual assault, or stalking victim services and 
        advocacy for members of Indian tribes. The services supported 
        with funds under the program must be designed to address the 
        unique circumstances of the individuals to be served, including 
        the customary practices and linguistic needs of the individuals 
        within the tribal community to be served. Tribes shall give 
        preference to tribal organizations or tribal nonprofit 
        organizations providing advocacy services to members of Indian 
        tribes within the community to be served such as a safety 
        center or shelter program for members of Indian tribes. In the 
        case where the above organizations do not exist within the 
        participating tribe, the participation and support from members 
        of Indian tribes in the community to be served is sufficient to 
        meet this requirement.
    ``(f) Administration Requirements.--
            ``(1) Application.--To reduce the administrative burden for 
        Indian tribes, the Director shall prepare an expedited 
        application process for Indian tribes participating in the 
        program required by this section. The expedited process shall 
        facilitate participating tribes' submission of information--
                    ``(A) outlining project activities;
                    ``(B) describing how the project activities will 
                enhance the Indian tribe's response to domestic 
                violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking 
                against members of Indian tribes; and
                    ``(C) identifying the tribal partner providing 
                advocacy and related services for members of Indian 
                tribes who are victims of crimes of domestic violence, 
                dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
            ``(2) Reporting and evaluation.--The Director shall 
        alleviate administrative burdens upon participating Indian 
        tribes by--
                    ``(A) developing a reporting and evaluation process 
                relevant to the distinct governance of Indian tribes;
                    ``(B) requiring only essential data to be 
                collected; and
                    ``(C) limiting reporting to an annual basis.
            ``(3) Grant period.--The Director shall award grants for a 
        two-year period, with a possible extension of another two years 
        to implement projects under the grant.
    ``(g) Presumption That Matching Funds not Required.--
            ``(1) In general.--Given the unique political relationship 
        between the United States and Indian tribes differentiates 
        tribes from other entities that deal with or are affected by, 
        the Federal Government, the Director shall not require an 
        Indian tribe to match funds under this section, except as 
        provided in paragraph (2).
            ``(2) Exception.--If the Director determines that an Indian 
        tribe has adequate resources to comply with a matching 
        requirement that would otherwise apply but for the operation of 
        paragraph (1), the Director may waive the operation of 
        paragraph (1) for that tribe.
    ``(h) Evaluation.--The Director shall award a contract or 
cooperative agreement to evaluate programs under this section to an 
entity with the demonstrated expertise in domestic violence, dating 
violence, sexual assault, and stalking and knowledge and experience 
in--
            ``(1) the development and delivery of services to members 
        of Indian tribes who are victimized;
            ``(2) the development and implementation of tribal 
        governmental responses to such crimes; and
            ``(3) the traditional and customary practices of Indian 
        tribes to such crimes.''.

                          Purpose and Summary

    H.R. 3402, the ``Department of Justice Appropriations 
Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 2006 Through 2009'' establishes 
spending levels of programs within the Department of Justice 
(``DOJ'' or ``Department''). Titles I through III establish 
spending levels for fiscal years 2006 through 2009. Titles IV 
through X authorize programs for fiscal years 2006 through 
2010. Title I provides the authorizations for appropriations 
for the various activities of the Department. Title II reforms 
various Department of Justice grant programs. Title III 
modifies various Department authorizing statutes. Title IV 
through title X of the bill reauthorize, improve and establish 
programs within the Violence Against Women Act (``VAWA'') 
within the DOJ, many of which are set to expire on September 
30, 2005.
    Titles I-III of H.R. 3402 contain many of the provisions 
contained in H.R. 3036 (108th Congress) with modified 
authorization levels. A small number of the provisions 
contained in that legislation were excluded from H.R. 3402 
because those provisions were enacted elsewhere or are no 
longer timely. A small number of additional provisions are 
contained in H.R. 3402 to address programs which are set to 
expire such as the Juvenile Accountability Block Grants program 
and the Sex Offender Management program.
    Titles IV-X of H.R. 3402 contain grant programs to States 
and local governments to combat domestic violence, dating 
violence, sexual assault and stalking that are within the 
jurisdiction of the Committee on the Judiciary. These sections 
reauthorize core DOJ programs to combat domestic violence and 
make improvements to those grant programs to further enhance 
programs to combat domestic violence, dating violence, sexual 
assault and stalking. The bill reauthorizes the Services 
Training Officers Prosecutors (``STOP'') program, which 
provides State formula grants that help fund collaboration 
efforts among police, prosecutors and victim services 
providers. The legislation also reauthorizes grants to 
encourage arrest programs that provide funds to communities to 
develop and strengthen programs and policies that encourage 
police officers to arrest abusers who commit acts of violence 
or violate protection orders. Additionally, the bill authorizes 
several new programs that include grants to improve training 
for court officials and law enforcement personnel, and to 
encourage community based solutions to domestic violence.

                Background and Need for the Legislation

                  A. STATUTORY AUTHORIZATION AUTHORITY

    ``Authorization'' is the process by which Congress creates, 
amends, and extends programs in executive agencies. The 
authorization process is an important oversight tool that 
Congress and committees of jurisdiction can employ. Through 
authorization legislation, authorizing committees establish 
programs, their objectives, and the upper limits for spending 
on them. Once a Federal program has been authorized, the actual 
budget authority for the program is set out in appropriations 
bills.
    The Department of Justice, established in 1870 by an act of 
Congress, is an executive department of the Federal Government 
under the direction and control of the Attorney General. (12 
Stat. 162 (1870)); (28 U.S.C. Sec. Sec. 501, 503). Except as 
otherwise authorized by law, the Justice Department has 
``[p]rimary responsibility for representing the United States, 
its agencies, and officers in the courts of the United States'' 
and, if necessary or appropriate, in State and local courts. 
(U.S. Dep't of Justice, Revised Edition of Compendium on Agency 
Litigation Authority 1-1 (Sept. 2000)); (28 U.S.C. 
Sec. Sec. 516-19, 547); (5 U.S.C. Sec. 3106). In addition, 
Congress has authorized executive departments, independent 
agencies, and government corporations to appear in court 
through their own counsel under certain circumstances. (Id.)
    Congressional authorization of appropriations for the 
Justice Department is required by law. (Pub. L. No. 94-503, 
Title II, Sec. 204, 90 Stat. 2427 (1976)). The Crime Control 
Act of 1976 provided that:

        No sums shall be deemed to be authorized to be 
        appropriated for any fiscal year beginning on or after 
        October 1, 1978, for the Department of Justice 
        (including any bureau, agency, or other similar 
        subdivision thereof) except as specifically authorized 
        by Act of Congress with respect to such fiscal year.

(Id.) Notwithstanding this statutory authority, until recently 
the Justice Department had not been formally authorized by 
Congress since 1980. (Pub. L. No. 96-397, 94 Stat. 1563 
(1980)). However, in 2001, Chairman Sensenbrenner introduced 
H.R. 2215, the ``21st Century Department of Justice 
Appropriations Authorization Act.'' This authorizing 
legislation was enacted into law on November 2, 2002. Pub. L. 
No. 107-273. This legislation fully authorized the 
appropriations requested by the President for fiscal years 2002 
and 2003, strengthened legislative oversight of the Department 
of Justice by bolstering the authority of the Department's 
Inspector General, required disclosure of additional 
information on the operation of the Office of Justice Programs, 
created additional Federal judgeships, and contained several 
legislative initiatives that had passed the House but received 
no floor vote in the Senate.
    In the 108th Congress, this Committee and the House of 
Representatives passed legislation, H.R. 3036, on a bipartisan 
basis and under suspension of the rules, to reauthorize, 
improve and establish programs at the Department of Justice for 
fiscal years 2004 through 2006. This legislation was never 
acted upon by the Senate, and therefore, never became law. 
Titles I-III of H.R. 3402 contain many of these provisions. In 
addition to these programs, the legislation adds 
reauthorization of grant programs to combat domestic violence, 
dating violence, sexual assault and stalking that are within 
the jurisdiction of the Committee and are set to expire this 
fiscal year.
    The Committee on the Judiciary has authorizing jurisdiction 
over the Department of Justice. The Justice Department is 
presently comprised of over 50 separate components, including 
the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Attorneys, the 
U.S. Marshals Service, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the 
Bureau of Prisons, the Office of Solicitor General, the Office 
of Justice Programs, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms 
and Explosives, the various litigating divisions, and others.
    H.R. 3402 reflect's the Committee on the Judiciary's 
continuing commitment to the authorization process. The 
highlights of H.R. 3402 are set forth below.

              B. TITLE I--AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS

    Title I contains authorizations of appropriations for the 
Department's various programs for fiscal years 2006 through 
2009. These authorization levels are based on the FY 2006 
authorized amounts in H.R. 3036 (108th Congress) and the 
President's budget request. For each fiscal year, the 
authorizations are increased for inflation.
    The Committee went beyond the Administration's request for 
FY 2006 for the Office of the Inspector General, fees and 
expenses for witnesses, and the administration of the grant 
program offices including COPS, OJP and VAWA.

         C. TITLE II--REFORM OF THE DEPARTMENT'S GRANT PROGRAMS

    Title II generally reforms the Justice Department's grant 
programs, most of which are run through the Office of Justice 
Programs (``OJP'') or the Community Oriented Policing Services 
(``COPS'') Office. The Committee believes that many of the 
programs that these two offices administer are worthwhile and 
should be continued. The Committee also believes that the 
Justice Department has made many administrative reforms in the 
last several years that have greatly increased the efficiency 
of these programs. The reforms in H.R. 3402 are intended to 
build on that progress and should not be interpreted to 
indicate any lack of support for that work. In fact, most of 
the measures included in title II originated from a proposal 
formally submitted to the Congress by the Administration on 
June 4, 2003.
    Title II makes numerous changes to DOJ's various grant 
programs many of which are relatively minor. Each of these is 
discussed in the section by section analysis below. The 
discussion in this section will focus on the most significant 
of the changes.
1. Merger of Byrne and LLEBG Programs
    Section 201 merges the current Byrne Grant Program (both 
the formula and discretionary aspects) and the Local Law 
Enforcement Block Grant Programs (LLEBG) into one new Edward 
Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program. This will 
allow States and local governments to make one application for 
this money annually for a 4-year term.
    The formula for distributing these grants combines elements 
of the current Byrne and LLEBG formulas. For allocating money 
to the States, each State automatically receives 0.25 percent 
of the total. Of the remaining amount, 50 percent is divided up 
among the States according to population (the method currently 
used under Byrne) and 50 percent is divided up based on the 
violent crime rate (the method currently used under LLEBG).
    Each State's allocation is then divided among State and 
locals in the following manner. Sixty percent of the allocation 
goes to the State. Then, that 60 percent is divided between 
State and locals based on their relative percentages of overall 
criminal justice spending within the State. The State keeps its 
portion of the 60% and gives out the local portion in the 
State's discretion. This follows how Byrne formula grants are 
now administered.
    The remaining 40 percent of the State's allocation goes 
directly to the local governments from OJP. Each class of local 
governments (e.g., cities, counties, townships, etc.) gets a 
share based on its relative percentage of local criminal 
justice spending within the State. Within each class, the 
class's share is divided up between the local governments in 
that class based on their crime rate. This is similar to how 
LLEBG grants are now done. The Committee believes it has 
devised a formula that gives all the recipients an amount that 
is as close as possible to the amount they would receive under 
current law.
    The bill authorizes $1.095 billion for the combined grant 
program which represents a 2 percent increase over the amount 
appropriated for both programs in Fiscal Year 2006 and such 
sums as may be necessary for 2007-2009. A new feature of the 
program is that States will be allowed to keep grant funds in 
interest bearing accounts until spent and then keep the 
interest. However, all money must be spent during the 4-year 
grant period. In addition, the new program consolidates the 
current 28 specific purposes for Byrne grants and 9 specific 
purposes for LLEBG grants into six broad purposes intended to 
cover the same ground while giving more flexibility to use the 
grants constructively.
    The Committee believes that these reforms will work to give 
State and local governments more flexibility to spend money for 
programs that work for them rather than to impose a ``one size 
fits all'' solution. In addition, the reforms should lessen the 
administrative burden of applying for the grants.
2. Authorization of Weed and Seed Program
    In 1991, DOJ established the Executive Office of Weed and 
Seed by administrative action. This program is a community-
based multi agency approach to law enforcement, crime 
prevention, and neighborhood restoration. It has been 
successful, but it has never been permanently authorized. 
Section 211 creates a new Office of Weed and Seed Strategies. 
This office will replace the current Executive Office of Weed 
and Seed, and for the first time, this program will have a 
specific authorization.
3. Overall Management of OJP and COPS
    Despite the laudable progress that the Department has made 
in the last several years, the Committee believes that 
additional measures are needed to instill a culture of 
accountability at OJP and COPS. Accordingly, the bill 
establishes three new offices within OJP: an Office of Audit, 
Assessment, and Management; a Community Capacity Development 
Office; and an Office of Applied Law Enforcement Technology. It 
also contains several other provisions designed to improve the 
management of OJP and COPS.
    Section 248 creates the new Office of Audit, Assessment, 
and Management within OJP. This office is authorized to audit, 
exercise corrective actions with respect to, and manage 
information with respect to, the COPS programs, any grant 
program carried out by OJP, and any other grant program carried 
out by DOJ that the Attorney General considers appropriate. 
This will include establishing and maintaining an automated 
information management system to track all grants. The Office 
of Audit, Assessment, and Management will report directly to 
the Office of the Assistant Attorney General.
    This office will address many of the problems that came to 
light during the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland 
Security's oversight hearings, particularly the lack of 
monitoring and outcome-based evaluations of OJP programs. This 
office will also address findings by the Department's Inspector 
General regarding failures to adequately review grant 
applications and undertake more aggressive and timely 
corrective action on audit findings, especially with grantees 
who do not comply with grant terms. A strategic objective of 
the Department of Justice for the Office of Justice Programs is 
to ensure meaningful outcomes, appropriate fiscal management, 
and accountability. This new office will help the Department 
achieve those objectives.
    The new office will audit grants representing 10 percent of 
all funds awarded by the programs that it covers each year. Not 
to exceed 5 percent of the funding for each program that the 
new office covers shall be reserved to fund the office.
    Section 249 creates a new Community Capacity Development 
Office within OJP. The Office will report directly to the 
Assistant Attorney General. This office will provide training 
on a regional and local basis to actual and prospective 
participants in the COPS programs, any grant program carried 
out by OJP, and any other grant program carried out by DOJ that 
the Attorney General considers appropriate. The office will 
also identify best practices for grantees and incorporate such 
practices into its training. Not to exceed 5 percent of the 
funding for each program that the new office covers shall be 
reserved to fund the office.
    Section 250 creates an Office of Applied Law Enforcement 
Technology headed by a Director appointed by the Attorney 
General. This office will ensure that grant moneys provided to 
law enforcement for computer systems will be spent for 
equipment and software that is of good quality and suitable for 
its intended purposes. The Director and the Office will provide 
leadership and focus so grants that are made for use or 
improvement of law enforcement computer systems ensure that 
recipients of such grants will use such systems to participate 
in crime reporting programs administered by the Department. 
This will correct past practices of little or no coordination 
between Federal grant funds spent by localities on computer 
systems and the crime reporting programs authorized by Congress 
and administered by the Department of Justice.
    Section 251 provides that unless otherwise specifically 
provided by an authorizing statute, money appropriated for 
grants in fiscal year 2006 and any subsequent fiscal year shall 
remain available to be awarded and distributed to grantees for 
the year appropriated and three subsequent fiscal years. If the 
money is reprogrammed, the time period begins again. It further 
provides that money distributed to grantees must be spent 
within the time period provided by the grant. In either case, 
money not meeting the requirement shall revert to the Treasury. 
This change will provide an incentive to get grant funds spent 
for their intended purposes rather than languishing at OJP or 
at the offices of the grantee.
    Section 252 requires the Assistant Attorney General of the 
Office of Justice Programs to make two significant financial 
management reforms: (1) consolidate all accounting activities 
of OJP into a single financial management system under the 
direct management of the Office of the Comptroller by September 
30, 2010, and (2) consolidate all procurement activities of OJP 
into a single procurement system under the direct management of 
the Office of Administration by September 30, 2008.
    The Assistant Attorney General is required to begin the 
consolidation of accounting activities under the Office of the 
Comptroller and the consolidation of procurement activities 
under the Office of Administration. The Office of 
Administration is to begin the consolidation of procurement 
operations and financial management systems into a single 
financial system.
    The Committee believes that these changes in Sections 248-
52 form one integrated package of management reforms that will 
greatly enhance the efficiency of OJP and COPS and help them to 
achieve their missions.

                 D. TITLE III--MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

    Title III makes a number of miscellaneous technical changes 
to statutes involving the Department, in addition to several 
substantive changes.
    Section 304 is intended to ensure that the Justice 
Department uses the most cost-effective training and meeting 
facilities for its employees. For any predominantly internal 
training or conference meeting, it requires the Justice 
Department to use only a facility that does not require a 
payment to a private entity for the use of such facility, 
unless specifically authorized in writing by the Attorney 
General. It further requires the Attorney General to prepare an 
annual report to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House 
and Senate Judiciary Committees that details each training or 
conference meeting requiring authorization. The report must 
include an explanation of why the facility was chosen and a 
breakdown of any expenditures incurred in excess of the cost of 
conducting the training or meeting at a facility that did not 
require such authorization. The Committee believes that this 
section will limit the practice of renting private facilities 
for Department retreats, conferences, meetings, and the like 
when Federal facilities are available for the same purpose.
    Section 305 establishes a statutory privacy officer within 
the Department. It is intended to ensure that the Department 
safeguards personally identifiable information and complies 
with fair information practices pursuant to 5 U.S.C. Sec. 552a. 
The responsibilities of the privacy officer will include: (1) 
assuring that the Department's use of technologies does not 
erode privacy protections relating to the use, collection, and 
disclosure of personally identifiable information; (2) ensuring 
that such information is handled in full compliance with fair 
information practices; (3) evaluating legislative and 
regulatory proposals concerning the collection, use, and 
disclosure of such information by the Federal Government; (4) 
conducting a privacy impact assessment of the Department's 
proposed rules on the privacy of such information; (5) 
reporting to Congress on the Department's activities that 
affect privacy; (6) ensuring that the Department protects such 
information and its information systems from unauthorized 
access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or 
destruction; and (7) advising the Attorney General and Director 
of the Office of Management and Budget on information security 
and privacy issues pertaining to Federal Government information 
systems.
    Section 306 is intended to ensure the United States Trustee 
Program (a component of the Justice Department) actively 
identifies matters warranting criminal referrals and undertakes 
efforts to prevent bankruptcy fraud and abuse. It requires the 
Director of the Executive Office for United States Trustees to 
prepare an annual report to the Congress detailing: (1) the 
number and types of criminal referrals made by the Program; (2) 
the outcomes of each criminal referral; (3) any decrease in the 
number of criminal referrals from the previous year; and (4) 
the Program's efforts to prevent bankruptcy fraud and abuse, 
particularly with respect to a debtor's failure to disclose 
assets.
    Section 307 was added by an amendment offered by 
Representative Adam Schiff. Section 307 requires the Attorney 
General to submit an annual report to Congress specifying the 
number of United States persons or residents detained on 
suspicion of terrorism and specifying the standards developed 
by the Department of Justice for recommending or determining 
that a person should be tried as a criminal defendant or should 
be designated as an enemy combatant.

                         E. COPS CONSOLIDATION

    During the Committee on the Judiciary's markup of H.R. 
3036, in the 108th Congress, Members of the Committee agreed in 
principle to consolidate a variety of programs within the COPS 
office into one single grant program encompassing all of the 
grant purposes that these programs currently encompass and 
allowing grants to be used for law enforcement devoted to 
homeland security and anti-terrorism efforts. As with the 
Byrne-LLEBG merger, this consolidation will allow State and 
local governments more flexibility to spend the money for 
programs that work in their locality while easing the 
administrative burden of applying to a different program for 
each different purpose.

        F. VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT REAUTHORIZATION (``VAWA'')

    The VAWA was first enacted in 1994, and was reauthorized in 
2000. The authorization for many of VAWA programs is set to 
expire on September 30, 2005. Titles IV through title X 
reauthorize and improve core programs until FY 2010 to address 
domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and 
stalking. These titles also establish new programs to address 
missing elements in the fight against violence such as training 
for court personnel, training of school personnel, and 
utilization of community-based approaches.

                         G. MANAGER'S AMENDMENT

    A manager's amendment offered by Chairman Sensenbrenner and 
Ranking Member Conyers was accepted at markup to include some 
important priorities of Committee Members, including 
authorizations for the Department of Justice to focus on 
individuals who operate organized theft rings or engage in 
human trafficking. Additional provisions of the manager's 
amendment authorized grants for gang resistance education and 
encouraged current juvenile offender grant programs to focus on 
bullying prevention.

                                Hearings

    Following House passage of the ``21st Century Department of 
Justice Authorization of Appropriations Act,'' the Judiciary 
Committee has continued to maintain an active role overseeing 
the Justice Department. While hearings on H.R. 3402, were held 
before the Committee, the full committee and several 
subcommittees have conducted oversight hearings over Justice 
Department components within their respective jurisdictions 
that have informed consideration of this legislation. 
Additionally, the legislation is substantially similar to 
legislation that passed the Committee and the House of 
Representatives in the 108th Congress. A number of 
reauthorization hearings were held by Subcommittees on these 
issues in the 108th Congress.

                        Committee Consideration

    On July 27, 2005, the Committee met in open session and 
ordered favorably reported the bill H.R. 3402 with an amendment 
by voice vote, a quorum being present.

                         Vote of the Committee

    In compliance with clause 3(b) of Rule XIII of the Rules of 
the House of Representatives, the Committee notes that there 
were no recorded votes during the committee consideration of 
H.R. 3402.

                      Committee Oversight Findings

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(1) of Rule XIII of the Rules 
of the House of Representatives, the Committee reports that the 
findings and recommendations of the Committee, based on 
oversight activities under clause 2(b)(1) of Rule X of the 
Rules of the House of Representatives, are incorporated in the 
descriptive portions of this report.

               New Budget Authority and Tax Expenditures

    Clause 3(c)(2) of Rule XIII of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives is inapplicable because this legislation does 
not provide new budgetary authority or increased tax 
expenditures.

               Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(3) of Rule XIII of the Rules 
of the House of Representatives, the Committee sets forth, with 
respect to the bill, H.R. 3402, the following estimate and 
comparison prepared by the Director of the Congressional Budget 
Office under section 402 of the Congressional Budget Act of 
1974:

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                Washington, DC, September 16, 2005.
Hon. F. James Sensenbrenner, Jr., Chairman,
Committee on the Judiciary,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
completed the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 3402, the 
Department of Justice Appropriations Authorization Act, Fiscal 
Years 2006 through 2009.
    The CBO staff contact for this estimate is Mark Grabowicz, 
who can be reached at 226-2860.
            Sincerely,
                                       Douglas Holtz-Eakin.

Enclosure

cc:
        Honorable John Conyers, Jr.
        Ranking Member
H.R. 3402--Department of Justice Appropriations Authorization Act, 
        Fiscal Years 2006 through 2009.

                                SUMMARY

    H.R. 3402 would authorize the appropriation of funds for 
fiscal years 2006 through 2009 for many programs and agencies 
in the Department of Justice (DOJ), including the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, 
the United States Attorneys, and the Bureau of Prisons. The 
bill also would authorize funding for a few programs through 
2010. H.R. 3402 would specifically authorize the appropriation 
of about $95 billion over the 2006-2010 period for almost all 
agencies and programs described in the bill. For a few 
programs, CBO estimated the funding levels necessary to 
implement those programs because the bill would authorize the 
appropriation of such sums as necessary.
    Assuming appropriation of the specified and estimated 
amounts, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3402 would cost 
about $94 billion over the 2006-2010 period. Spending by the 
four agencies mentioned above would account for about $59 
billion of that total. Enacting the bill could affect direct 
spending and receipts, but CBO estimates that any such effects 
would not be significant.
    H.R. 3402 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA). 
The bill would benefit State, local, and tribal governments by 
authorizing the appropriation of more than $12 billion over 
fiscal years 2006 through 2010 for a variety of programs to 
assist law enforcement agencies. Any costs to those governments 
would be incurred voluntarily as a condition of receiving 
federal assistance.

                ESTIMATED COST TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

    The estimated budgetary impact of H.R. 3402 is shown in the 
following table. The cost of this legislation falls within 
budget function 750 (administration of justice).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: Numbers may not sum to totals because of rounding.
1. Appropriations for the programs that would be authorized by the bill summed to $19.4 billion in fiscal year
  2005.

                           BASIS OF ESTIMATE

    CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3402 would cost about 
$94 billion over the next five years, assuming appropriation of 
the necessary funds. Enacting the bill could affect direct 
spending and receipts, but we estimate that any such effects 
would not be significant.
Spending Subject to Appropriation
    For this estimate, CBO assumes that the amounts 
specifically authorized by the bill will be appropriated near 
the start of each fiscal year and that spending will follow the 
historical spending rates for the authorized activities. We 
expect a few programs to spend additional funds more slowly 
than the historical rates because the bill would authorize 
substantial increases in funding, relative to the amounts 
appropriated for 2005.
    H.R. 3402 would authorize the appropriation of about $1.1 
billion and $60 million in 2006, and such sums as necessary for 
subsequent years, for the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Grant 
Program and for the Office of Weed and Seed Strategies, 
respectively. For those two law-enforcement grant programs, CBO 
estimated the necessary funding levels in future years by 
adjusting 2006 funding for anticipated inflation. In addition, 
based on information from DOJ, CBO estimated the cost for a new 
office to coordinate the various grant programs that improve 
technology. CBO estimates that operations of the bill's 
proposed Office of Applied Law Enforcement Technology would 
cost $45 million over the 2006-2010 period.
    In addition, based on information from DOJ, CBO estimates 
that increased protection for immigrant victims of violence 
authorized by the bill would cost $49 million over the five-
year period.
    Under current law, the Antitrust Division of DOJ is 
authorized to collect premerger filing fees and spend such 
collections without further appropriation action. CBO assumes 
that the amounts authorized to be appropriated in H.R. 3402 for 
the Antitrust Division are in addition to this current spending 
authority.
Direct Spending and Revenues
    H.R. 3402 would broaden the coverage of current laws 
against certain offenses committed in correctional facilities, 
thus enabling the Government to pursue cases that it otherwise 
would not be able to prosecute. Because those prosecuted and 
convicted under H.R. 3402 could be subject to criminal fines, 
the Federal Government might collect additional fines if the 
legislation is enacted. Criminal fines are recorded as 
revenues, then deposited in the Crime Victims Fund and later 
spent. CBO expects that any additional revenues and direct 
spending would not be significant because of the relatively 
small number of cases affected.

        ESTIMATED IMPACT ON STATE, LOCAL, AND TRIBAL GOVERNMENTS

    H.R. 3402 contains no intergovernmental mandates as defined 
in UMRA. The bill would benefit State, local, and tribal 
governments by authorizing the appropriation of more than $12 
billion over fiscal years 2006 through 2010 for a variety of 
programs to assist law enforcement agencies. Any costs to those 
governments would be incurred voluntarily as a condition of 
receiving federal assistance.

                 ESTIMATED IMPACT ON THE PRIVATE SECTOR

    This bill contains no new private-sector mandates as 
defined in UMRA.

                    Performance Goals and Objectives

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(4) of Rule XIII of the Rules 
of the House of Representatives, the Committee sets forth the 
following performance goals and objectives.
    The Committee expects that OJP and COPS will vigorously 
implement the various reforms contained in sections 248-52 to 
bring about greater efficiency and accountability in the 
programs administered by those offices. The Committee will 
closely monitor that implementation to determine whether they 
are being faithfully executed and whether further legislation 
is necessary to foster a culture of accountability.
    The Committee expects that the Department of Justice will 
continue to make combating domestic violence, dating violence, 
sexual assault and stalking a priority in light of the 
reauthorization and improvements to the Violence Against Women 
Act included in H.R. 3402.

                   Constitutional Authority Statement

    Pursuant to clause 3(d)(1) of Rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the Committee finds the authority for 
this legislation in article I, section 8 of the Constitution.

               Section-by-Section Analysis and Discussion

Section 1. Short Title; Table of Contents
    Section 1 provides that the bill may be cited as the 
``Department of Justice Appropriations Authorization Act,'' 
Fiscal Years, 2004 through 2006 and sets forth the table of 
contents.

                TITLE I--AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS

Section 101. Authorization of Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2006
    Section 101 sets forth specific sums authorized to be 
appropriated to carry out the activities of the Department of 
Justice for Fiscal Year 2006.
Section 102. Authorization of Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2007
    Section 102 sets forth specific sums authorized to be 
appropriated to carry out the activities of the Department of 
Justice for Fiscal Year 2007.
Section 103. Authorization of Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2008
    Section 103 sets forth specific sums authorized to be 
appropriated to carry out the activities of the Department of 
Justice for Fiscal Year 2008.
Section 104. Authorization of Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2009
    Section 104 sets forth specific sums authorized to be 
appropriated to carry out the activities of the Department of 
Justice for Fiscal Year 2009.
Section 105. Organized Retail Theft
    This section directs the FBI to establish a task force to 
provide expertise to the private sector to enhance efforts to 
combat organized retail theft and establish databases tracking 
patterns of theft. Additionally, this section allows for grants 
to state and local law enforcement agencies for costs 
associated with participating in the database project. The 
legislation authorizes $5 million for FY 2006 through FY 2009 
to carry out this section.

            TITLE II--IMPROVING THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE'S 
                             GRANT PROGRAMS

Section 201. Merger of Byrne Grant and Local Law Enforcement Block 
        Grant Program
    Section 201 merges the current Byrne Grant Program (both 
formula and discretionary) and the Local Law Enforcement Block 
Grant Programs into one new Edward Byrne Memorial Justice 
Assistance Grant Program. This will allow States and local 
governments to make one application for this money annually for 
a 4-year term.
    The formula for distributing these grants combines elements 
of the current Byrne and LLEBG formulas. For allocating money 
to the States, each State automatically receives 0.25 percent 
of the total. Of the remaining amount, 50 percent is divided up 
among the States according to population (the method currently 
used under Byrne) and 50 percent is divided up based on the 
violent crime rate (the method currently used under LLEBG).
    Each State's allocation is then divided among State and 
locals in the following manner. Sixty percent of the allocation 
goes to the State. Then, that 60 percent is divided between 
State and locals based on their relative percentages of overall 
criminal justice spending within the State. The State keeps its 
portion of the 60 percent and gives out the local portion in 
the State's discretion. This follows how Byrne formula grants 
are now done.
    The remaining 40% of the State's allocation goes directly 
to the local governments from OJP. Each class of local 
governments (e.g., cities, counties, townships, etc.) gets a 
share based on its relative percentage of local criminal 
justice spending within the State. Within each class, the 
class's share is divided up between the local governments in 
that class based on their crime rate. This is similar to how 
LLEBG grants are now done.
    The bill authorizes $1.075 billion for the program. A new 
feature of the program is that States will be allowed to keep 
grant funds in interest bearing accounts until spent and then 
keep the interest. However, all money must be spent during the 
4-year grant period. In addition, the new program consolidates 
the current 28 specific purposes for Byrne grants and 9 
specific purposes for LLEBG grants into 6 broad purposes 
intended to cover the same ground while giving more flexibility 
to use the grants constructively.
Section 202. Clarification of Number of Recipients who may be Selected 
        in a Given Year to Receive Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor
    Section 202 amends the Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor 
Act of 2001. As enacted, the Act provided that no more than 
five medals may be awarded per year and that they may only be 
awarded to individuals. In some instances, the acts of valor 
are performed by teams of individuals rather than one person. 
To address this problem, section 202 amends the Act to provide 
that the medal may be awarded to groups of individuals as well 
as single individuals.
Section 203. Clarification of Official to be Consulted by Attorney 
        General in Considering Application for Emergency Federal Law 
        Enforcement Assistance
    Section 203 amends the Emergency Federal Law Enforcement 
Assistance program (42 U.S.C. Sec. 10501 et seq.) to clarify 
that in awarding grants under this program the Attorney General 
shall consult with the Assistant Attorney General for the 
Office of Justice Programs rather than the Director of the 
Office of Justice Assistance. This change simply brings the 
statute into conformity with the existing chain of command in 
the Department.
Section 204. Clarification of Uses for Regional Information Sharing 
        System Grants
    Section 204 amends the authorization for the Regional 
Information Sharing System (42 U.S.C. Sec. 3796h) to clarify 
its regional character and its authority to establish and 
maintain a secure telecommunications backbone.
Section 205. Integrity and Enhancement of National Criminal Record 
        Databases
    Section 205 amends the authorizing statute for the Bureau 
of Justice Statistics (42 U.S.C. Sec. 3732): (1) to clarify 
that the Director shall be responsible for the integrity of 
data and statistics and the prevention of improper or illegal 
use or disclosure; (2) to provide specific authorization for 
the already existing National Criminal History Background Check 
System, the National Incident-Based Reporting System, and the 
records of the National Crime Information Center and to 
facilitate State participation in these systems; and (3) to 
facilitate data-sharing agreements between the Bureau of 
Justice Statistics and other Federal agencies.
Section. 206. Extension of the Matching Grant Program For Law 
        Enforcement Armor Vests
    This section extends the matching program for law 
enforcement bulletproof vests for FY 2009.
Section 211. Office of Weed and Seed Strategies
    Section 211 creates a new Office of Weed and Seed 
Strategies. This office will replace the current Executive 
Office of Weed and Seed, and for the first time, this program 
will have a specific authorization.
Section 221. Grants to Local Nonprofit Organizations to Improve 
        Outreach Services to Victims of Crime
    Section 221 amends the crime victim assistance grants 
program to allow grants of less than $10,000 to be made to 
smaller neighborhood and community-based victim service 
organizations. Currently, grants under this program tend to go 
to larger organizations, and this amendment simply emphasizes 
that some of the money spent in this program should go to 
smaller organizations as well.
Section 222. Clarification and Enhancement of Certain Authorities 
        Relating to Crime Victims Fund
    Section 222 makes several minor adjustments to the 
authorities relating to the Crime Victims Fund. Subsection 
222(1) clarifies that the fund may only accept gifts, 
donations, or bequests if they do not attach conditions 
inconsistent with applicable laws or regulations and if they do 
not require the expenditure of appropriated funds that are not 
available to the Office of Victims of Crime. Current law 
establishes a $50 million antiterrorism reserve within the 
fund. Each year that reserve may be replenished by using up to 
5 percent of the money in the fund that was not otherwise 
expended during that year. Subsection 222(2) changes the word 
``expended'' to ``obligated'' so that funds that have already 
been obligated for other purposes, but not yet spent will not 
be counted for this purpose.
    Subsection 222(3) allows the Assistant Attorney General to 
direct the use of the funds available for Indian child abuse 
program grants under 42 U.S.C. Sec. 10601(g) and to use 5% of 
those funds for grants to Indian tribes to establish victim 
assistance programs.
Section 223. Amounts Received under Crime Victim Grants may be Used by 
        State for Training Purposes
    Section 223 amends the grant programs for victim 
compensation and victim assistance to allow the States part of 
the 5 percent reserved for administrative costs for training 
purposes.
Section 224. Clarification of Authorities Relating to Violence Against 
        Women Formula and Discretionary Grant Programs
    Section 224 makes several clarifications to the program to 
fund grants to combat violent crimes against women. Subsection 
224(a) clarifies that grants may be used for victim services. 
Subsection 224(b) corrects an incorrect section number 
reference in last year's DOJ authorization bill. Subsection 
224(c) clarifies that grants under the program can be made to 
Indian tribal domestic violence coalitions and corrects other 
technical errors and makes conforming changes. Subsection 
224(d) changes the reporting requirement on the program from 
annual to biennial.
    Subsection 224(e) clarifies that State and tribal 
governments may use grant funds under the program to pay for 
forensic medical exams for sexual assault victims so long as 
the victims are not required to seek reimbursement from their 
insurers. It further provides that the victim shall not be 
required to participate in the criminal justice system or 
cooperate with law enforcement in order to be provided with a 
forensic medical exam, reimbursement for such exam, or both. 
Subsection 224(f) makes a technical amendment to the heading 
for this part of the Code.
Section 225. Change of Certain Reports from Annual to Biennial
    Section 225 amends the reporting provisions under two grant 
programs to change them from annual to biennial.
Section 231. Clarification of Definition of Violent Offender for 
        Purposes of Juvenile Drug Courts
    Section 231 amends the juvenile drug court grant program so 
that offenders who are convicted of a violent misdemeanor may 
participate in the program. Currently, misdemeanor offenders 
may participate only if their offense is non-violent.
Section 232. Changes to Distribution and Allocation of Grants for Drug 
        Courts
    Section 232(a) repeals the requirement that all States must 
receive a minimum allocation under the program regardless of 
the quality of its application. Section 232(b) provides for 
training by the newly created Community Capacity Development 
Office to assist applicants who are not funded in how to 
successfully pursue grants under the program.
Section 233. Eligibility for Grants under Drug Court Grants Program 
        Extended to Courts that Supervise Non-Offenders with Substance 
        Abuse Problems
    Section 233 amends the drug court program to allow 
continuing supervision over non-violent offenders as well as 
other related persons who may be before the court. This will 
allow a drug court to consolidate the cases of related 
individuals who may be under its jurisdiction at one time and 
supervise them jointly.
Section 234. Terms of Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Program for 
        Local Facilities
    Section 234 amends the Residential Substance Abuse 
Treatment for State Prisoners program to clarify that the 
grants should go to local correctional facilities and detention 
facilities where prisoners are held long enough to carry out a 
3-month course of drug treatment.
Section 241. Changes to Certain Financial Authorities
    Subsection 241(a) raises from 3 to 6 percent the amount of 
money collected from civil debt collection activities that can 
be credited to the Working Capital Fund established under 28 
U.S.C. Sec. 527.
    Subsection 241(b) exempts the SCAAP program from the 
requirement that it reimburse the Treasury when it makes 
untimely payments. Subsection 241(c) exempts the Southwest 
Border Initiative from that requirement and the requirement 
that it pay interest to States for untimely payments.
    Subsections 241(d) and (e) update certain general law 
enforcement authorities of the Attorney General to include the 
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
Section 242. Coordination Duties of Assistant Attorney General
    Subsection 242(a) amends the authorizing statute for OJP to 
include the Office of Victims of Crime within the list of OJP 
bureaus. Subsection 242(b) allows the Assistant Attorney 
General to place special conditions on all grants and to 
determine priority purposes for formula grants.
Section 243. Simplification of Compliance Deadlines Under Sex-Offender 
        Registration Laws
    Under current law, States are required to establish State 
registries of offenders who have committed crimes against 
minors or who have committed sexually violent crimes. They are 
also required to share this information with the FBI so that it 
can maintain a national database. States who do not comply by 
the deadline can lose 10% of their Byrne grant funding. Some 
States have made good faith efforts to comply with this 
requirement, but are still struggling to implement it.
    Subsection 243(a) gives these States an additional 3 years 
after the date of enactment to implement this requirement. It 
further allows the Attorney General to extend this deadline for 
an additional 2 years if the State is making a good faith 
effort to comply. Subsection 243(b) corrects a drafting error 
in the language relating to the provisions relating to the 
length of registrations required by those who have committed 
offenses against minors and those who are sexually violent 
predators. This correction makes the two periods consistent and 
removes an erroneous implication that the period for sexually 
violent offenders could be terminated prematurely.
Section 244. Repeal of Certain Programs
    Section 244 repeals seven grant programs that have been 
authorized, but have largely not been funded in recent years: 
the Criminal Justice Facility Construction Pilot Program; the 
Family Support Program; the Matching Grant Program for School 
Security; the Local Crime Prevention Block Grant Program; the 
Assistance for Delinquent and At-Risk Youth Program; the 
Improved Training and Technical Automation Program; and the 
Other State and Local Aid Program.
Section 245. Elimination of Certain Notice and Hearing Requirements
    Section 245 eliminates the requirement that OJP must 
provide notice and a hearing for grant applicants whose 
applications are denied. It further eliminates the opportunity 
for appellate review of the decisions arising from such 
hearings. These rights are rarely used.
Section 246. Amended Definitions for Purposes of Omnibus Crime Control 
        and Safe Streets Act of 1968
    Section 246 broadens the definition of the term ``Indian 
Tribe'' to allow more tribes to be treated as units of local 
government for purposes of OJP grants. It broadens the 
definition of the term ``combination'' of State and local 
governments to include those who jointly plan. It amends the 
definition of the term ``neighborhood or community-based 
organizations'' to clarify that it includes faith-based 
organizations.
Section 247. Clarification of Authority to Pay Subsistence Payments to 
        Prisoners for Health Care Items and Services
    Under current law, the Attorney General is required to pay 
for health care items and services for certain prisoners in the 
custody of the United States. In every instance, he must not 
pay more than the lesser of what the Medicare or Medicaid 
program would pay. This requires the Attorney General to expend 
a great deal of effort to determine that in each case. This 
subsection changes that to simply say that he shall not pay 
more than the Medicare rate. It also substitutes the Department 
of Homeland Security for a reference to the now defunct 
Immigration and Naturalization Service.
Section 248. Office of Audit, Assessment, and Management
    Section 248 creates a new Office of Audit, Assessment, and 
Management within OJP. This office is authorized to audit, 
exercise corrective actions with respect to, and manage 
information with respect to, the COPS programs, any grant 
program carried out by OJP, and any other grant program carried 
out by DOJ that the Attorney General considers appropriate. 
This will include establishing and maintaining an automated 
information management system to track all grants. The Office 
of Audit, Assessment, and Management will report directly to 
the Office of the Assistant Attorney General.
    This office will be created to address many of the problems 
that came to light during the Subcommittee's oversight 
hearings, particularly the lack of monitoring and outcome-based 
evaluations of OJP programs. This Office will address findings 
by the Department's Inspector General regarding failures to 
adequately review grant applications and conduct more 
aggressive and timely corrective action on audit findings, 
especially with grantees who do not comply with grant terms. A 
strategic objective of the Department of Justice for the Office 
of Justice Programs is to ensure meaningful outcomes, 
appropriate fiscal management, and accountability. This new 
office will help the Department achieve those objectives.
    The new office will audit grants representing 10% of all 
funds awarded by the programs that it covers each year. Not to 
exceed 5% of the funding for each program that the new office 
covers shall be reserved to fund the office.
Section 249. Community Capacity Development Office
    Section 249 creates a new Community Capacity Development 
Office within OJP. This office is authorized to provide 
training on a regional and local basis to actual and 
prospective participants in the COPS programs, any grant 
program carried out by OJP, and any other grant program carried 
out by DOJ that the Attorney General considers appropriate. The 
Office will also identify best practices for grantees and 
incorporate such practices into its training. Not to exceed 5% 
of the funding for each program that the new office covers 
shall be reserved to fund the office.
Section 250. Office of Applied Law Enforcement Technology
    Section 250 creates an Office of Applied Law Enforcement 
Technology headed by a Director appointed by the Attorney 
General. This office will ensure that grant moneys provided to 
law enforcement for computer systems will be spent for 
equipment and software that is of good quality and suitable to 
support. The Director and the office will provide leadership 
and focus so that grants that are made for using or improving 
law enforcement computer systems and ensuring that recipients 
of such grants use such systems to participate in crime 
reporting programs administered by the Department. This will 
correct past practice where there has been little or no 
coordination between Federal grant funds spent by localities on 
computer systems and the crime reporting programs authorized by 
Congress and administered by the Department of Justice.
Section 251. Availability of Funds for Grants
    Section 251 provides that unless otherwise specifically 
provided by an authorizing statute, money appropriated for 
grants in fiscal year 2004 and any subsequent fiscal year shall 
remain available to be awarded and distributed to grantees for 
the year appropriated and three subsequent fiscal years. If the 
money is reprogrammed, the time period begins again. It further 
provides that money distributed to grantees must be spent 
within the time period provided by the grant. In either case, 
money not meeting the requirement shall revert to the Treasury. 
This change will provide an incentive to get grant funds spent 
for their intended purposes rather than languishing at OJP or 
at the offices of the grantee.
Section 252. Consolidation of Financial Management Systems of Office of 
        Justice Programs
    Section 252 requires the Assistant Attorney General of the 
Office of Justice Programs to make two significant financial 
management reforms: (1) consolidate all accounting activities 
of OJP into a single financial management system under the 
direct management of the Office of the Comptroller by September 
30, 2010, and (2) consolidate all procurement activities of OJP 
into a single procurement system under the direct management of 
the Office of Administration by September 30, 2008.
    The Assistant Attorney General is required to begin the 
consolidation of accounting activities under the Office of the 
Comptroller and the consolidation of procurement activities 
under the Office of Administration not later than October 1, 
2003.
Section 253. Authorization and Change of COPS Program to Single Grant 
        Program
    This section reauthorizes the Community Oriented Policing 
Program but allows the States and local governments to apply 
for the funds for a number of different purpose areas to allow 
some flexibility in the use of funds.
Section 254. Clarification of Persons Eligible for Benefits Under 
        Public Safety Officers' Death Benefits programs
    This section makes technical amendments to the PSOB program 
to ensure that it is properly applied and corrects a problem in 
current law that would allow payments to be made to multiple 
beneficiaries on behalf of one officer.
Section 255. Pre-Release and Post-Release Programs for Juvenile 
        Offenders
    This section amends the Juvenile Accountability Block Grant 
to allow use of grant funds for juvenile offender reentry 
programs.
Section 256. Reauthorization of the Juvenile Accountability Block 
        Grants
    This section reauthorizes the Juvenile Accountability Block 
Grants program (JABG), which this Committee established in the 
107th Congress to encourage programs to hold juvenile offenders 
accountable while addressing their special needs.
Section 257. Sex Offender Management
    This section reauthorizes a program to track sex offenders 
and encourage States to effectively monitor them upon release 
from prison.
Section 258. Evidence-Based Approaches
    This section amends the law authorizing Juvenile 
Accountability Block Grants to include a provision for ``the 
extent to which evidence-based approaches are utilized'' to be 
among the criteria used by States and localities to determine 
which programs should be funded through JABG. Some good sources 
of information that States and localities can utilize to 
determine what approaches are ``evidence-based'' include:

         LBlueprints for Violence Prevention, a project 
        of the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence, 
        at the University of Colorado at Boulder, which has 
        identified prevention and intervention programs that 
        meet a strict scientific standard of program 
        effectiveness in reducing violence and recidivism;

         LBenefits and Costs of Prevention and Early 
        Intervention Programs for Youth, a report of a study by 
        Steve Aos, et al., Washington State Institute for 
        Public Policy, September 2004, which includes a 
        comparative cost-benefit analysis across several 
        approaches;

         LGoal 5 (discussing evidence-based practices) 
        of the recent ``President's New Freedom Commission on 
        Mental Health'' Report; Chapter 3 (Children and Mental 
        Health) of ``Mental Health: A Report of the Surgeon 
        General;'' and Appendix 5-B (Descriptions of Specific 
        Programs That Meet Standards for Model and Promising 
        Categories) of ``Youth Violence: A Report of the 
        Surgeon General.''

Such resources provide information on the success of several 
programs in intervening with youth who have already started 
down the path to crime.

Justice Department to use only a facility that does not require 
a payment to a private entity for the use of such facility, 
unless specifically authorized in writing by the Attorney 
General. Subsection (b) requires the Attorney General to 
prepare an annual report to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of 
the House and Senate Judiciary Committees that details each

the facility was chosen and a breakdown of any expenditures 
incurred in excess of the cost of conducting the training or 
meeting at a facility that did not require such authorization.
Section 304. Privacy Officer
    Section 304 is intended to ensure that the Justice 
Department safeguards personally identifiable information and 
complies with fair information practices pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 
Sec. 552a. Subsection (a) requires the Attorney General to 
designate a senior official with primary responsibility for 
privacy policy. Subsection (b) specifies that the 
responsibilities of such official include: (1) assuring that 
the Department's use of technologies does not erode privacy 
protections relating to the use, collection, and disclosure of 
personally identifiable information; (2) ensuring that such 
information is handled in full compliance with fair information 
practices; (3) evaluating legislative and regulatory proposals 
concerning the collection, use, and disclosure of such

Justice Department to review its policies to assure that it 
treats personally identifiable information in its databases in 
a manner that complies with applicable Federal law pertaining 
to privacy.
Section 305. Bankruptcy Crimes
    Section 305 is intended to ensure the United States Trustee 
Program (a component of the Justice Department) actively 
identifies matters warranting criminal referrals and undertakes 
efforts to prevent bankruptcy fraud and abuse. It requires the 
Director of the Executive Office for United States Trustees to 
prepare an annual report to the Congress detailing: (1) the 
number and types of criminal referrals made by the Program; (2) 
the outcomes of each criminal referral; (3) any decrease in the 
number of criminal referrals from the previous year; and (4) 
the Program's efforts to prevent bankruptcy fraud and abuse, 
particularly with respect to a debtor's failure to disclose 
assets.
Section 306. Report to Congress on Status of United States Persons or 
        Residents Detained on Suspicion of Terrorism
    Section 306 was added by an amendment offered by 
Representative Schiff and adopted by the Committee. Section 306 
requires the Attorney General to submit an annual report to 
Congress specifying the number of United States persons or 
residents detained on suspicion of terrorism.
Section 307. Increased Penalties and Expanded Jurisdiction for Sexual

Attorney General.
Section 309. Magistrate Judge's Authority to Continue a Preliminary 
        Hearing
    This section amends current law to make it clear that 
either a district judge or a magistrate judge may extend the 
time limits for a preliminary hearing. It maintains the 
requirement that such extension may be only upon a showing of 
extraordinary circumstances and that justice requires delay.

community.
Section 314. SEARCH Grants
    This section authorizes the Attorney General to make grants 
to the National Consortium for Justice Information and 
Statistics to carry out the operations of the National 
Technical Assistance and Training Program.
Section 315. Reauthorization of the Law Enforcement Tribute Act

the Law Enforcement Tribute Act, which authorizes the 
Department of Justice to give grants to State and local 
governments for building memorials to law enforcement.
Section 316. Amendment regarding bullying and gangs
    This section would amend the Juvenile Accountability Block 
Grants program to allow funds to be used to address bullying 
prevention in schools.
Section 317. Transfer of provisions relating to the Bureau of Alcohol, 
        Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
    This section transfers the authorization of the Bureau of 
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives out of title 6 into 
title 28.

    This section reauthorizes the Gang Resistance Education and 
Training Projects Program from FY 2006 through FY 2010.
Section 319. National Training Center

      TITLE IV--VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN REAUTHORIZATION ACT OF 2005

Section 401. Short title
    This section establishes the short title for titles IV-X of 
this legislation.
Section 402. Definitions and Requirements for Programs
    The Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 is 
amended by inserting before section 2001 (42 U.S.C. 3796gg) the 
following new sections:
    Sec. 2000A. Clarification that Programs Relating to 
Violence Against Women are Gender Neutral
    Specifies that any grants or other activities for 
assistance to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, 
stalking, sexual assault or trafficking in persons shall be 
construed to cover both male and female victims.
    Sec. 2000B. Definitions that Apply to Any Provision Carried 
Out by the Violence Against Women Office
    This section provides definitions for programs carried out 
by the Office of Violence Against Women.
    Sec. 2000C. Requirements that Apply to Any Grant Program 
Carried Out by the Violence Against Women Office
    This section specifies privacy protections, approved 
activities, non-supplantation, use of funds, evaluation, 
prohibition on lobbying, and prohibition on tort litigation.
    Congress recognizes the importance of ensuring that 
grantees and subgrantees of VAWA programs utilize funding 
effectively. The past 10 years have shown that both 
comprehensive technical assistance and targeted technical 
assistance and training for grantees have been extremely 
useful. In addition, local grantees and subgrantees have been 
very helpful in developing best practices in the work of their 
community partners in social services and the justice system. 
Peer to peer cross-training has improved system responses 
throughout the country. Educating existing grantees and new 
grantees about the scope and changes in the laws regarding 
domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and 
stalking is crucial to ensuring efficient and consistent 
service delivery. It is important that any technical assistance 
and training model implemented under VAWA grant programs should 
anticipate, rather than simply respond to grantees' and 
subgrantees' questions. Good technical assistance and training 
for VAWA grantees and subgrantees includes offering proactive 
solutions, regular training, implementation guidance, and best 
practices.

    TITLE V--ENHANCING JUDICIAL AND LAW ENFORCEMENT TOOLS TO COMBAT 
                                VIOLENCE

Section 501. STOP Grants Improvements
    This section reauthorizes and makes modifications to the 
STOP grant program, which provides State formula grants that 
bring police and prosecutors in close collaboration with victim 
services for racial and ethnic minorities and ensures victim 
confidentiality. It also conditions receiving grants on the 
grantee not making available publicly on the Internet 
information regarding protection or restraining orders or 
injunctions. This section mandates that law enforcement 
officials who wish to receive grants under this program cannot 
mandate a polygraph test as a requirement for proceeding with 
an investigation or arrest. This section eliminates the 
matching requirements for small law enforcement agencies and 
victim service providers with an annual operating budget under 
$5 million.
Section 502. Grants to Encourage Arrest and Enforce Protection Orders 
        Improvements
    This section reauthorizes this program, which was adopted 
in the Violence Against Women Act of 1994. States and 
localities use this funding to develop and strengthen programs 
and policies that encourage police officers to arrest abusers 
who commit acts of violence or violate protection orders. This 
section includes modifications to this program to provide 
technical assistance to improve tracking of cases in a manner 
that preserves confidentiality and privacy protections for 
victims. Modifications to this program were made by this 
section to encourage victim service programs to collaborate 
with law enforcement to assist pro-arrest and protection order 
enforcement policies. In addition, this section authorizes 
family justice centers and extends pro-arrest policies to 
sexual assault cases.
Section 503. Legal Assistance for Victims Improvements
    This section reauthorizes the grant program for legal 
services for protection orders and family, criminal, 
immigration, administrative agency, and housing matters. It 
allows victims of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, 
and sexual assault to obtain access to trained attorneys and 
lay advocacy services, particularly pro bono legal services, 
when they require legal assistance as a consequence of 
violence. The program has been expanded to provide services to 
both adult and youth victims.
Section 504. Court training and improvements
    This section authorizes a training program to educate the 
courts and court-related personnel in the areas of domestic 
violence, dating violence, sexual abuse and stalking. This 
section also authorizes one or more grants to create general 
curricula for State and tribal judiciaries to use when 
educating in the areas of domestic violence, dating violence, 
sexual assault and stalking in order to ensure that all States 
have access to consistent and appropriate information. Finally, 
it creates a program to improve court access for teens.
Section 505. Full faith and Credit Improvements
    This section makes technical amendments to the criminal 
code to clarify that courts should enforce the protection 
orders (to both adult and minor victims) issued by civil and 
criminal courts in other jurisdictions.
Section 506. Privacy Protections for Victims of Domestic Violence, 
        Dating Violence, Sexual Violence, and Stalking
    This section establishes a task force to compose a best 
practices model on protecting privacy and authorizes the 
Attorney General to perform a demonstration project to 
implement the best practices model.
Section 507. Stalker Database
    This section reauthorizes the stalker database for each 
fiscal year 2006 through 2010.
Section 508. Victim Assistants for District of Columbia
    This section authorizes $ 1 million for fiscal year 2006 
through 2010 for victim advocates for the prosecution of sex 
crimes and domestic crimes where applicable.
Section 509. Preventing Cyberstalking
    This section amends title 18 to prevent stalking over the 
Internet by allowing Federal prosecutors more discretion in 
charging stalking cases that occur entirely over the Internet.
Section 510. Repeat Offender Provision
    This section amends title 18 to permit doubling the 
applicable penalty for repeat Federal domestic violence 
offenders.
Section 511. Prohibiting Dating Violence
    This section amends the existing definition of domestic 
violence to include dating violence.
Section 512. GAO Study and Report
    This section directs the General Accounting Office to study 
the extent to which men, women, youth, and children are victims 
of violence and the availability of services to address the 
needs of these individual groups.

 TITLE VI--IMPROVING SERVICES FOR VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, DATING 
                 VIOLENCE, SEXUAL ASSAULT, AND STALKING

Section 601. Technical amendment to Violence Against Women Act
    This section specifies that funds appropriated under this 
part may only be used for programs specified in the part.
Section 602. Sexual Assault Services Program
    This section creates a separate and direct funding stream 
dedicated to sexual assault services for each fiscal year 2006 
through 2010.
Section 603. Amendments to the Rural Domestic Violence and Child Abuse 
        Enforcement Assistance Program
    This section reauthorizes and expands the existing 
education, training and services grant programs that address 
violence against women in rural areas.
Section 604. Assistance for Victims of Abuse
    This section consolidates programs to provides services for 
victims of abuse who are elderly or disabled, including 
programs to provide training, consultation, and information on 
domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and sexual 
assault.
Section 605. GAO Study of National Domestic Violence Hotline.
    This section requires the GAO to perform a study of the 
National Domestic Violence Hotline to determine the 
effectiveness of the Hotline.
Section 606. Grants for Outreach to Underserved Populations.
    This section authorizes $2 million for fiscal year 2006 
through 2010 to provide grants to carry out public information 
campaigns focused on addressing adult or minor domestic 
violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking or 
trafficking within tribal, racial, and ethnic populations and 
immigrant communities.

   TITLE VII. SERVICES, PROTECTION AND JUSTICE FOR YOUNG VICTIMS OF 
                                VIOLENCE

Section 701. Services and Justice for Young Victims of Violence
    This section establishes two grant programs to assist 
children and youth (between the ages of 12 and 24) who witness 
domestic violence in the home or are victims of domestic 
violence, dating violence, sexual assault or stalking. The 
first grant program would establish collaboration between law 
enforcement, the courts and child welfare agencies to enhance 
community responses to domestic violence and the effects on 
children. The second program includes grants to assist youth 
who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual 
assault and stalking.
Section 702. Grants to Combat Violent Crimes on Campuses
    This section reauthorizes a program administered by the 
Department of Justice to provide grants to colleges and 
universities to develop and strengthen effective security and 
investigation strategies to combat domestic violence, dating 
violence, sexual assault and stalking.
Section 703. Safe Havens
    This section improves and reauthorizes the Safe Havens 
program, which currently is authorized to provide a safe place 
for exchange of children in custody situation where there is 
domestic violence. This section improves the program by clearly 
authorizing the program to provide services to ensure the 
safety of parents and prevent the children from witnessing 
domestic violence.
Section 704. Grants to Combat Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, 
        Sexual Assault and Stalking in Middle and High Schools
    This section authorizes grants to train school personnel to 
recognize signs of violence in middle school and high school 
and establish policies for intervention.

TITLE VIII--STRENGTHENING AMERICA'S FAMILIES BY PREVENTING VIOLENCE IN 
                                THE HOME

Section 801. Preventing Violence in the Home
    This section would authorize programs for mentoring, 
advocacy and counseling for young victims of domestic violence 
and training for and coordination for programs that serve 
children and youth. Grants to communities to establish 
alliances between men, women and youth to prevent domestic 
violence, dating, violence, sexual assault and stalking are 
also included in this section. This section authorizes $5 
million to establish a program to train home visitation 
providers in recognizing signs of domestic violence.

         TITLE IX--PROTECTION FOR IMMIGRANT VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE

Section 900. Short Title of Title; References to VAWA-2000; Regulations
    This section requires that regulations implementing both 
this Act (including materials and dissemination under section 
922) and the Act reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act 
in 2000 (``VAWA 2000''), be issued within 180 days of this 
Act's enactment. In applying such regulations, in the case of 
petitions or applications affected by the changes made by the 
Acts, there shall be no requirement to submit an additional 
petition, application, or certification from a law enforcement 
agency with the date of the application for interim relief 
establishing the priority date of counting time towards 
adjustment of status. However, the Department of Homeland 
Security may request additional evidence be submitted when the 
documentation supporting an outstanding VAWA self-petition or 
justifying interim relief is now insufficient.

                      SUBTITLE A--VICTIMS OF CRIME

Section 901. Conditions Applicable to U and T Visas.
    U visas are available to victims of certain crimes who 
cooperate with law enforcement in investigations and/or 
prosecutions. T visas are available to the victims of 
trafficking who cooperate with law enforcement in 
investigations and/or prosecutions. Certain family members of T 
visa recipients can also receive T visas.
    Section 901(a) provides that certain family members and 
trafficking victims can receive T visas without having to first 
show that the visas are necessary to avoid ``extreme 
hardship.''
    Section 901(b) provides that T and U visas shall be issued 
for 4 years and may be extended under certain conditions. This 
provides victims who qualify for permanent residence sufficient 
time to file before their visas expire. An extension shall be 
granted upon certification from a government official that the 
victim's presence is required to assist a criminal 
investigation or prosecution, or to give the Bureau of 
Citizenship and Immigration Services (``CIS'') time to 
adjudicate the petitions for permanent residence and for 
adjustment of status to permanent residence.
    Section 901(c) provides that aliens in the U.S. on K 
(fiance or spouse) and S (informant) visas, or pursuant to the 
visa waiver program, are not prohibited from qualifying for T 
and U visa status. Aliens who came to the U.S. on J visas to 
receive graduate medical training, and aliens who are subject 
to the 2-year foreign residence requirement, may also qualify 
for T and U status.
    Section 901(d) provides that aliens can qualify for T 
status if they respond to and cooperate with requests for 
evidence and information from law enforcement officials. It 
also permits State and local law enforcement officials 
investigating or prosecuting trafficking-related crimes to file 
a request (and certification) asking DHS to grant continued 
presence to trafficking victims.
Section 902. Clarification of Basis for Relief Under Hardship Waivers 
        for Conditional Permanent Residence
    The Secretary of Homeland Security can remove the 
conditional status of an alien who became a permanent resident, 
as the spouse of a U.S. citizen or permanent resident without 
the joint filing of a petition with the U.S. citizen or 
permanent resident spouse, upon the showing of hardship, 
battery, or certain other factors. This section provides that 
an application for such relief may be amended to change the 
ground or grounds for such relief without having to be 
resubmitted. The ability in current law to file hardship 
waivers while outside of the United States will not be 
available to applicants who have a final removal order in 
effect that was issued after the alien was granted conditional 
residency.
Section 903. Adjustment of Status for Victims of Trafficking
    The Secretary of Homeland Security can adjust the status of 
a T visa recipient to that of a permanent resident after 3 
years of physical presence in the U.S. under a T visa or after 
being granted ``continued presence'' by Federal law enforcement 
officials.
    Section 903(a) provides that for aliens who have been 
granted both a T visa and continued presence, the required 3-
year period may be counted by starting from the earlier of 
either the date on which an alien was granted continued 
presence by DHS, or the date on which the T visa was granted. 
In addition, the Secretary may waive or reduce the required 3-
year period if the Federal, State, or local law enforcement 
official investigating or prosecuting the relevant trafficking 
has no objection. An alien seeking to adjust status must be of 
good moral character through the 3-year period.
    Section 903(b) provides that the Secretary may waive a 
factor that would otherwise disqualify the alien from being 
considered to have good moral character if there is a 
connection between the disqualifying factor and the trafficking 
of the alien. The Committee recognizes that DHS has issued 
policy memoranda defining ``connection'' in two other VAWA 
related contexts. See USCIS Interoffice Memorandum HQOPRD 70/
8.1/8.2, January 19, 2005, from Paul E. Novak to William R 
Yates and INS Memorandum HQADN/70/8, January 2, 2002, from 
Michael A. Pearson to Stuart Anderson. The Committee encourages 
the Department of Homeland Security to use standards and 
analysis similar to those described in these memos when 
defining the term ``connection'' for the purposes of this 
section, sections 917, 919, 932, and 935 of this Act, and other 
VAWA-related provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act 
(``INA'').
    Section 903(c) provides that the Secretary must, as part of 
an already required annual report, include statistics regarding 
the number of law enforcement officials who have been trained 
in the identification and protection of trafficking victims and 
their eligibility for T visas.

                     SUBTITLE B--VAWA PETITIONERS.

Section 911. Definition of VAWA Petitioner
    This section defines a ``VAWA petitioner'' as an alien who 
has applied for classification or relief under a number of 
provisions of the INA, including those who have filed self-
petitions for permanent residence as the battered spouses and 
children of U.S. citizens and permanent residents and, pursuant 
to this bill, as the battered parents of U.S. citizens. Also 
included in this definition are applicants for certain benefits 
under the Cuban Adjustment Act, the Haitian Refugee Immigrant 
Fairness Act (``HRIFA''), and the Nicaraguan Adjustment and 
Central American Relief Act (``NACARA'').
    In 1997, the Immigration and Naturalization Service 
consolidated adjudication of VAWA self-petitions and VAWA-
related cases in one specially trained unit that adjudicates 
all VAWA immigration cases nationally. The unit was created 
``to ensure sensitive and expeditious processing of the 
petitions filed by this class of at-risk applicants . . .'', to 
``[engender] uniformity in the adjudication of all applications 
of this type'' and to ``[enhance] the Service's ability to be 
more responsive to inquiries from applicants, their 
representatives, and benefit granting agencies.'' See 62 Fed. 
Reg. 16607-16608 (1997). T visa and U visa adjudications were 
also consolidated in the specially trained VAWA unit. See, 
USCIS Interoffice Memorandum HQINV 50/1, August 30, 2001, from 
Michael D. Cronin to Michael A. Pearson, 67 Fed. Reg. 4784 
(Jan. 31, 2002).
    Consistent with these procedures, the Committee recommends 
that the same specially trained unit that adjudicates VAWA 
self-petitions, T and U visa applications, process the full 
range of adjudications, adjustments, and employment 
authorizations related to VAWA cases (including derivative 
beneficiaries) filed with DHS: VAWA petitions T and U visas, 
VAWA Cuban, VAWA NACARA (Sec. Sec. 202 or 203), and VAWA HRIFA 
petitions, 214(c)(15)(work authorization under section 933 of 
this Act), battered spouse waiver adjudications under 
216(c)(4)(C) and (D), applications for parole of VAWA 
petitioners and their children, and applications for children 
of victims who have received VAWA cancellation.
Section 912. Self-Petitioning for Children
    This section ensures that immigrant children who are 
victims of incest and child abuse get full access to VAWA 
protections. Additionally, this section extends Child Status 
Protection Act relief to children who qualify for VAWA 
immigration relief.
    Section 912(a) provides that the minor child of a U.S. 
citizen or permanent resident may self-petition for permanent 
residence if the abusive parent has died or otherwise 
terminated the parent-child relationship within the past 2 
years (or, if later, 2 years after the date the child attains 
the age of 18). Also, the alien spouse of a permanent resident 
may self-petition for permanent residence if the abusive 
permanent resident spouse died within the past 2 years.
    Section 912(b) provides protections that prevent children 
from ``aging out'' of access to VAWA relief. The section 
guarantees that child self-petitioners, who are abused by 
citizen parents, will continue to be treated as immediate 
relatives (or as petitioners for preference status if 
subsequently married) if they turn 21 during the processing of 
their petitions. Child self-petitioners who are abused by 
permanent resident parents will be treated as applicants for 
``2A'' preference status as the minor children of a permanent 
resident, if they turn 21 during the processing of their 
petitions.
    Section 912(c) provides that the application for adjustment 
of status to permanent residence of an alien who self-
petitioned for permanent residence shall also serve as an 
adjustment application for any derivative children. Derivative 
children of self-petitioners will receive lawful permanent 
residency along with their self-petitioning parents.
    Section 912(d) provides that alien child abuse and incest 
victims who would have qualified to self-petition as the minor 
children of U.S. citizens or permanent residents can file the 
petition until the aliens attain the age of 25. This allows 
child abuse victims time to escape their abusive homes, secure 
their safety, access services and support that they may need, 
and address the trauma of their abuse.
Section 913. Self-Petitioning Parents
    This section extends the ability to self-petition to the 
parent of an adult U.S. citizen who resides or has resided with 
the U.S. citizen son or daughter, if the alien demonstrates 
that he or she has been battered by, or has been the subject of 
extreme cruelty perpetrated by, their U.S. citizen son or 
daughter.
Section 914. Promoting Consistency in VAWA Adjudications
    This section promotes consistency in VAWA adjudications by 
making technical corrections that replace references to 
``domestic violence'' with references to ``battery or extreme 
cruelty,'' the domestic abuse definition codified in the 
Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (``VAWA 1994''), the Illegal 
Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 
(``IIRIRA'') and regulations implementing the battered spouse 
waiver.
Section 915. Relief for Certain Victims Pending Actions on Petitions 
        and Applications for Relief
    Section 915(a)(1) provides that the Secretary of Homeland 
Security may grant deferred action to an alien who has filed a 
prima facie valid petition as a VAWA petitioner, or for T or U 
visa status, during the pendency of the application. The 
current practice of granting deferred action to approved VAWA 
self petitioners shall continue. Aliens with deferred action 
status shall not be removed or deported. Prima facie 
determinations and deferred action grants called for in this 
section shall be made by the specially trained unit of 
immigration benefits adjudicators (currently at CIS) 
responsible for adjudicating VAWA petitions. These immigration 
benefits adjudicators (CIS) have authority to grant deferred 
action status in VAWA cases for the Department of Homeland 
Security. Immigration enforcement officials (currently at the 
Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Bureau of 
Customs and Immigration Enforcement) are not authorized to 
revoke deferred action, but may ask the specially trained CIS 
unit to review a case and determine whether or not to revoke a 
deferred action grant. Only the Secretary of Homeland Security 
(or a delegated official but only if that official has 
management authority over both the immigration services and 
immigration enforcement functions) may overrule a CIS grant of 
deferred action to an alien victim. Immigration enforcement 
officers should refer aliens they encounter who may qualify for 
relief under this Act to immigration benefits adjudicators 
handling VAWA cases at CIS.
    This Committee encourages the Secretary of DHS to (a) 
develop a training program for trial attorneys and other DHS 
staff who regularly encounter alien victims of crimes, and (b) 
craft and implement policies and protocols on appropriate 
handling by DHS officers of cases under VAWA 1994, the Acts 
subsequently reauthorizing VAWA, and IIRIRA.
    Section 915(a)(2) aims to discourage detention of aliens 
whom VAWA offers immigration relief. This section requires that 
an alien whose application as a VAWA petitioner or for T or U 
visa status has been approved may not be detained unless 
detention is required for terrorist activity or certain 
criminal activity.
    Section 915(a)(3) provides that an alien whose petition as 
a VAWA petitioner or for T status has been approved shall be 
granted work authorization. U visa applicants are provided work 
authorization under existing law.
    Section 915(b) provides that an alien who has filed a prima 
facie application for cancellation of removal as a battered 
alien shall not be removed or deported during the pendency of 
the application.
    Under current law DHS has the discretionary authority to 
consent to the readmission of a previously removed alien (using 
the existing I-212 process). The protection VAWA offers 
immigrant victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and 
trafficking is undermined when otherwise qualified victims are 
cut off from VAWA benefits because of a prior removal from the 
United States. The victims, should they return to the U.S. 
without authorization, become subject to reinstatement of 
removal. This Committee encourages DHS to make use of its 
discretion in granting readmission to appropriately assist 
aliens with humanitarian cases including but not limited to, 
victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, victims of 
trafficking and crime victims who are cooperating in criminal 
investigations.
Section 916. Access to VAWA Protection Regardless of Manner of Entry
    Section 916 has been designed to address Congress' concerns 
about U.S. citizen abusers who use the K visa process to 
petition for aliens outside the United States and abuse them. 
This section protects these abused aliens by allowing them to 
self-petition for permanent residence as well as making them 
eligible for VAWA cancellation of removal and VAWA suspension 
of deportation. The section also works in conjunction with 
section 922 to prevent further abuse by instituting measures to 
distribute information that can help the K visa recipients 
learn about domestic violence protections available to them in 
the United States. It also provides them specific information 
about their U.S. citizen petitioners' criminal conviction 
history. Additionally, this section limits the ability of 
abusive U.S. citizens to repeatedly petition for K visas for 
aliens outside the U.S.
    Section 916(a) provides that an alien may self-petition as, 
or in the same manner as, the spouse of a U.S. citizen if the 
alien entered the U.S. under a K visa with the intent to enter 
into a valid marriage and the alien (or the alien's child) was 
battered or subject to extreme cruelty in the U.S. by the U.S. 
citizen who filed the K visa petition. Also, such an alien does 
not have to depart within 3 months if the marriage does not 
occur.
    Section 916(b) provides that a VAWA petitioner and a K visa 
recipient who seeks adjustment of status to that of permanent 
residence on the basis of an approved petition as a VAWA 
petitioner does not have to first go through 2 years of 
conditional permanent residence. Also, an alien who entered 
under a K visa with the intent to enter into a valid marriage 
and the alien (or child) was battered or subject to extreme 
cruelty in the U.S. by the U.S. citizen who filed the K visa 
petition is eligible for cancellation of removal as a battered 
alien if the alien meets the other requirements for 
cancellation.
    The Committee seeks to deter filing of K visa applications 
by U.S. citizens with histories of domestic violence, sexual 
assaults, and child abuse, by requiring full disclosure to K 
visa recipients of information on any criminal convictions for 
these offenses by their petitioners. Section 916(c) provides 
that a U.S. citizen filing a petition for an alien for a K visa 
must include information on any criminal convictions for 
domestic violence, sexual assault, or child abuse. Following 
current practice, this information will be provided under 
penalty of perjury. See e.g., Form I-130 (Rev. 06/05/02) 
(requiring petitioner to ``certify, under penalty of perjury 
under the laws of the United States of America, that the 
foregoing is true and correct.'').
    A consular officer may not approve a petition without 
verifying that the petitioner has not previously petitioned for 
more than two aliens applying for K visas. If the petitioner 
has had such a petition previously approved, the consular 
officer must verify that 2 years have elapsed since the filing 
of the previous petition. The Secretary of Homeland Security 
may grant waivers of the 2-year waiting period or the limit on 
filing more than two petitions. The waivers included here were 
designed to give DHS the discretion to waive both the time and 
number limitations when K visa applications are filed by non-
abusive U.S. citizens. Such waivers may be appropriate, for 
example, for non-abusive U.S. citizens who live abroad and may 
be more likely to marry foreign spouses, or in cases of unusual 
circumstances, such as the sudden death of an alien approved 
for a prior K visa.
    Section 916(d) provides that an alien who was the spouse or 
minor child of an alien granted asylum at the time of the 
granting of asylum, and who (or whose child) was battered or 
the subject of extreme cruelty by the asylee, is eligible for 
adjustment of status although they may have divorced or 
separated from the asylee.
    Under current law, visa waiver entrants who are placed in 
removal proceedings are precluded from obtaining relief from 
removal, other than asylum. Section 916(e) guarantees access to 
VAWA relief for entrants under the visa waiver program by 
allowing those placed in removal proceedings to seek VAWA 
adjustment of status, VAWA cancellation of removal, VAWA self-
petition, VAWA suspension of deportation and T and U visas.
    Section 916(f) provides that an alien who has failed to 
meet the 2-year return requirement of a J visa may still file a 
petition as a VAWA petitioner, or for a T or U visa.
Section 917. Eliminating Abusers' Control Over Applications for 
        Adjustments of Status
    VAWA 2000 created routes to lawful permanent residence for 
abused spouses and children of primary applicants under various 
nationality-based immigration laws. Section 917 assures that a 
family members' eligibility for status will hinge neither on an 
abuser's filing status, nor on an ongoing relationship with or 
marriage to the abuser in order to eliminate an abuser's 
control over the abused family member. See section 936 for 
further amendments regarding the motions to reopen removal 
proceedings for battered aliens under VAWA.
    Section 917(a) and (b) provide that the motions to reopen 
for abused aliens apply to all VAWA petitioners, VAWA 
cancellation of removal applicants and to those seeking 
adjustment of status in proceedings.
    Section 917(c) allows abused spouses and children eligible 
for legal immigration status as Nicaraguans or Cubans under 
NACARA to apply for such status, even if the abuser did not 
apply for status and even through the deadline for filing has 
past.
    Section 917(d) provides that an alien who was the spouse of 
a Cuban eligible for adjustment under the Cuban Adjustment Act 
shall continue to be treated as such a spouse for 2 years after 
the date on which the Cuban dies, or for 2 years after the date 
of termination of the marriage, if the alien demonstrates a 
connection between the termination of the marriage and being 
battered or subject to extreme cruelty by the Cuban.
    Section 917(e) provides that if an alien abuser was 
eligible for status under HRIFA, but did not apply for status, 
the alien's abused spouse or children at the time may now apply 
for legal immigration status on their own.
    Section 917(f) allows abused spouses and children to file 
their own suspension of deportation applications under NACARA 
if they were abused by a Guatemalan, Salvadoran or Eastern 
European abuser who was eligible for suspension of deportation 
under pre-1996 rules pursuant to NACARA. Abused spouses and 
children are also allowed to file motions to reopen their prior 
removal or deportation case using VAWA.
    Section 917(g) provides that an individual who was a VAWA 
petitioner, or had a T or U visa, may not file an immigrant or 
nonimmigrant petition for the person who committed the battery 
or extreme cruelty or trafficking against the individual which 
established the individual's eligibility as a VAWA petitioner, 
or for T or U status.
Section 918. Parole for VAWA Petitioners and for Derivatives of 
        Trafficking Victims
    VAWA 2000 allowed victims of domestic violence abused by 
U.S. citizen and lawful permanent resident spouses to file VAWA 
self-petitions from outside of the U.S. if they had been abused 
in the U.S. or if their abuser was a member of the uniformed 
services or a government employee. Modeled after the VAWA 2000 
protection offered to children on VAWA cancellation of removal 
grantees, section 918 assures that VAWA petitioners, their 
derivative children and children of trafficking victims, can 
enter the U.S. by requiring the Secretary of Homeland Security 
to grant parole to:

         La VAWA petitioner whose petition was approved 
        based on having been battered or subject to extreme 
        cruelty by a U.S. citizen spouse, parent, or child and 
        who is admissible and eligible for an immigrant visa;

         La VAWA petitioner whose petition was approved 
        based on having been battered or subject to extreme 
        cruelty by a permanent resident spouse or parent, who 
        is admissible and who would be eligible for an 
        immigrant visa but for the fact that an immigrant visa 
        is not immediately available, if at least 3 years have 
        elapsed since the alien's priority date; and

         Lan alien who the Secretary of State 
        determines would, but for an application or approval, 
        meet the conditions for approval for a T visa as a 
        family member of the trafficking victim.

    When a VAWA petitioner's abuser is a permanent resident 
spouse or parent, the 3 year waiting period for the petitioner 
and any derivative children will be calculated based on the 
priority date assigned to the VAWA petition under 8 C.F.R. 
Sec. 204.2(h)(2).
Section 919. Exemption of Victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault 
        and Trafficking from Sanctions for Failure to Depart 
        Voluntarily
    Section 919 provides that an alien who is a VAWA 
petitioner, or is seeking a T or U visa, or is seeking 
cancellation of removal or VAWA suspension as a battered alien 
is not subject to the penalties for failing to depart after 
agreeing to a voluntary departure order, if there is a 
connection between the failure to depart and the battery or 
extreme cruelty, trafficking, or criminal activity making them 
eligible to seek such status. As discussed in section 903, the 
Committee encourages the DHS to define ``connection'' for 
purposes of this section using similar standards and analysis 
to those described in the two policy memoranda cited in section 
903.
Section 920. Clarification of Access to Naturalization for Victims of 
        Domestic Violence
    Section 920 provides that any alien who was subject to 
battery or extreme cruelty by a U.S. citizen spouse or parent 
may naturalize after 3 years as a permanent resident, 
regardless of whether the lawful permanent resident status was 
obtained on the basis of such battery or cruelty. This section 
prevents alien domestic violence victims from being forced by 
naturalization laws to remain in abusive marriages or to wait 
two additional years to file for naturalization. It allows 
victims the same access to 3-year naturalization they would 
have if their U.S. citizen spouse did not abuse them.
Section 921. Prohibition of Adverse Determinations of Admissibility or 
        Deportability Based on Protected Information
    In 1996, Congress created special protections for victims 
of domestic violence against disclosure of information to their 
abusers and the use of information provided by abusers in 
removal proceedings. In 2000, and in this Act, Congress 
extended these protections to cover victims of trafficking, 
certain crimes and others who qualify for VAWA immigration 
relief. These provisions are designed to ensure that abusers 
and criminals cannot use the immigration system against their 
victims. Examples include abusers using DHS to obtain 
information about their victims, including the existence of a 
VAWA immigration petition, interfering with or undermining 
their victims' immigration cases, and encouraging immigration 
enforcement officers to pursue removal actions against their 
victims.
    This Committee wants to ensure that immigration enforcement 
agents and government officials covered by this section do not 
initiate contact with abusers, call abusers as witnesses or 
relying on information furnished by or derived from abusers to 
apprehend, detain and attempt to remove victims of domestic 
violence, sexual assault and trafficking, as prohibited by 
section 384 of IIRIRA. In determining whether a person 
furnishing information is a prohibited source, primary evidence 
should include, but not be limited to, court records, 
government databases, affidavits from law enforcement 
officials, and previous decisions by DHS or Department of 
Justice personnel. Other credible evidence must also be 
considered. Government officials are encouraged to consult with 
the specially trained VAWA unit in making determinations under 
the special ``any credible evidence'' standard.
    Section 921(a) and (b) provide that the Secretary of 
Homeland Security and the Attorney General and other Federal 
officials may not use information furnished by, or derived from 
information provided solely by, an abuser, crime perpetrator or 
trafficker to make an adverse determination of admissibility or 
removal of an alien. However, information in the public record 
and government data bases can be relied upon, even if 
government officials first became aware of it through an 
abuser.
    Section 921(c) provides that this provision shall not apply 
to prevent information from being disclosed, in a manner that 
protects victim confidentiality and safety, to the chairs and 
Ranking Members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, 
including the Immigration Subcommittees, in the exercise of 
their oversight authority.
    Section 921(d) provides that in the case of an alien 
applying for relief as a special immigrant juvenile who has 
been abused, neglected, or abandoned, the government may not 
contact the alleged abuser.
    Section 921(e) provides that investigation and enforcement 
of these provisions shall be by the Office of Professional 
Responsibility of the Justice Department.
    Section 921(f) establishes a system to verify that removal 
proceedings are not based on information prohibited by section 
384 of IIRIRA. DHS must certify that:

         L(1) no enforcement action was taken leading 
        to such proceedings against an alien at certain places 
        including a domestic violence shelter, a rape crisis 
        center, and a courthouse if the alien is appearing in 
        connection with a protection order or child custody 
        case, or that

         L(2) such an enforcement action was taken, but 
        that there was no violation of the aforementioned 
        provisions. Persons who knowingly make a false 
        certification shall be subject to penalties.

    Removal proceedings filed in violation of section 384 of 
IIRIRA shall be dismissed. However, further proceedings can be 
brought if not in violation of section 384.
Section 922. Information for K Nonimmigrants About Legal Rights and 
        Resources for Immigrant Victims of Domestic Violence
    Section 922 contains provisions designed to allow K visa 
applicants to make informed decisions about their marriage to a 
U.S. citizen and have information about how to gain help if 
they experience battering or extreme cruelty at the hands of 
their U.S. citizen spouse or fiance. This section provides that 
the Secretary of Homeland Security shall consult with non-
governmental organizations with expertise on the legal rights 
of immigrant victims and the Departments of Justice and State 
to develop consistent and accurate materials, including an 
information pamphlet, on legal rights and resources for 
immigrant victims of domestic violence for dissemination to 
applicants for K visas. The following materials will be mailed 
to K visa applicants with an instruction packet regarding the 
visa process: the information pamphlet; a copy of the K visa 
application (including information about criminal convictions 
of the U.S. citizen sponsor for domestic violence, sexual 
assault and child abuse as provided for in section 916); and 
any information that DHS possesses about the petitioner who 
filed the K visa (e.g. from IBIS (the Interagency Border 
Inspection System), National Crime Information Center, or 
Federal and State domestic violence databases) regarding 
convictions for crime(s) of violence as defined in 18 U.S.C. 
sec. 16, any similar State conviction, or any domestic violence 
adjudication. Information from the pamphlet and regarding 
convictions will be orally transmitted by consular officers at 
the applicant's interview. It is the intent of Congress that 
this section does not create an actionable ground for lawsuits 
against DHS or other any government agency. In implementing 
this section, consistent with and under the requirements of 
Section 900(c) of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security 
shall develop and put in use the information, materials and 
distribution mechanism described in section 922(a) through (e) 
not later than 180 days from enactment.
Section 923. Authorization of Appropriations
    This section authorizes appropriations of such sums as may 
be necessary for the Department of Homeland Security's 
specially trained unit to adjudicate applications, adjustments, 
and employment authorizations related to VAWA cases (primary or 
derivative) filed with DHS.

                  SUBTITLE C--MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

Section 931. Removing 2 Year Custody and Residence Requirement for 
        Battered Adopted Children
    Section 931 provides that an adopted alien qualifies as a 
child for immigration purposes, despite not having been in the 
legal custody of, or having resided with, the adopting parent 
for at least 2 years, if the child has been battered or subject 
to extreme cruelty by the adopting parent or by a family member 
of the adopting parent residing in the same household. This 
section, consistent with VAWA's protective purpose, ensures 
that child abuse victims are not required to suffer abuse or 
risk losing immigration benefits they would otherwise receive 
if they had not been subjected to child abuse.
Section 932. Waiver of Certain Grounds of Inadmissibility for VAWA 
        Petitioners
    Section 932(a) provides that the Secretary of Homeland 
Security may waive the ground of inadmissibility for falsely 
claiming to be a U.S. citizen in the case of a VAWA petitioner 
who demonstrates a connection between the false claim and the 
alien's being subjected to battery or extreme cruelty. As 
discussed in section 903, the Committee encourages the 
Department of Homeland Security to define ``connection'' for 
purposes of this section using the standards and analysis 
described in the previously cited policy memoranda.
    Section 932(b) provides that the public charge ground of 
inadmissibility shall not apply to a VAWA petitioner or a 
qualified alien described in the Personal Responsibility and 
Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act.
Section 933. Employment Authorization for Battered Spouses of Certain 
        Nonimmigrants
    Section 933 provides that an alien spouse admitted under 
the A (foreign diplomats), E-3 (Australian professionals), G 
(international organizations), or H (temporary worker) visa 
programs accompanying or following to join a principal alien 
shall be granted work authorization if the spouse demonstrates 
that during the marriage he or she (or a child) has been 
battered or has been subjected to extreme cruelty perpetrated 
by the principal alien. This section is intended to reduce 
domestic violence by giving victims tools to protect themselves 
and hold abusers accountable. Research has found the financial 
dependence on an abuser is a primary reason that battered women 
are reluctant to cooperate in their abuser's prosecution. With 
employment authorization, many abused spouses protected by this 
section will be able to attain work providing them the 
resources that will make them more able to safely act to stop 
the domestic violence. The specially trained CIS unit shall 
adjudicate these requests.
Section 934. Grounds for Hardship Waiver for Conditional Permanent 
        Residence for Intended Spouses
    Section 934 adds an additional ground for a hardship waiver 
of the 2-year conditional permanent resident joint petition 
requirement for an alien spouse of a citizen or permanent 
resident. Under this section such spouses may qualify for a 
waiver if, following the marriage ceremony, the alien has been 
battered or subject to extreme cruelty by their intended U.S. 
citizen spouse. This section allows battered immigrants who 
participated in a marriage ceremony and unknowingly married an 
abusive U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident bigamist to 
avail themselves of an intended spouse hardship waiver and 
attain lawful permanent residency.
Section 935. Cancellation of Removal
    VAWA 2000 created several new waivers and exceptions to 
deportation and grounds of inadmissibility that might otherwise 
bar domestic violence victims from gaining immigration status. 
Due to a drafting error, immigration judges could not utilize 
many of these waivers and exceptions. Section 935(a) clarifies 
that immigration judges can utilize these waivers and 
exceptions to provide relief for VAWA applicants. This 
subsection shall apply retroactively as if included in VAWA 
2000. Judges are expected to continue to exercise discretion, 
where appropriate, in determining ultimate eligibility for the 
waivers and exceptions, taking into account the ameliorative 
intent of these laws. This section also provides that an alien 
remains eligible for cancellation of removal as a battered 
alien if removable for failure to register or document fraud or 
for marriage fraud (if there was a connection between the 
marriage fraud and the battery or extreme cruelty; this 
Committee encourages the Department of Homeland Security to 
define ``connection'' for purposes of this section using 
standards and analysis similar to that described in the 
previously cited policy memoranda).
    Section 935(b) provides that the 4,000 annual limit on 
cancellations of removal does not apply to cancellations of 
removal of battered aliens.
Section 936. Motions to Reopen
    Section 936 contains amendments that clarify the VAWA 2000 
motions to reopen for abused aliens, enabling otherwise 
eligible VAWA applicants to pursue VAWA relief from removal, 
deportation or exclusion. This section provides that the 
limitation of one motion to reopen a removal proceeding shall 
not prevent the filing of one special VAWA motion to reopen. In 
addition, a VAWA petitioner can file a motion to reopen removal 
proceedings after the normal 90-day cut-off period, measured 
from the time of the final administrative order of removal. 
However, such battered aliens must be physically present in the 
U.S. at the time of filing the special motion. The filing of a 
special VAWA motion to reopen shall stay the removal of the 
alien pending final disposition of the motion, including 
exhaustion of all appeals, if the motion establishes a prima 
facie case for the relief. One VAWA 2005 post-enactment motion 
to reopen may be filed by a VAWA applicant. Aliens who filed 
and were denied special VAWA motions under VAWA 2000 may file 
one new motion under this Act.
Section 937. Removal Proceedings
    Some abusers have prevented their victims from attending 
their removal proceedings. As a result, these battered victims 
are ordered deported in absentia. Under current law, the in 
absentia orders may be rescinded if the applicant files a 
motion to reopen and demonstrates that there were exceptional 
circumstances for failure to appear at the removal hearing. 
Section 937 provides that battery or extreme cruelty of the 
alien (or a child or parent of the alien) shall qualify as 
exceptional circumstances justifying failure to appear at a 
removal proceeding.
Section 938. Conforming Relief in Suspension of Deportation Parallel to 
        the Relief Available in VAWA-2000 Cancellation for Bigamy
    Section 938 provides that suspension of deportation for 
battered aliens, as it existed before 1996, shall apply in 
cases of battery perpetrated by a U.S. citizen or permanent 
resident whom the alien intended to marry, but whose marriage 
was not legitimate because of the citizen's or permanent 
resident's bigamy. VAWA 2000 offered protection to intended 
immigrant spouses who unknowingly married bigamists for 
purposes of VAWA self-petitioning and VAWA cancellation of 
removal. This section adds protection under VAWA suspension of 
deportation.
Section 939. Correction of Cross-Reference to Credible Evidence 
        Provisions
    Technical corrections to conform correct cross-reference 
for VAWA credible evidence provisions in the Cuban Adjustment 
Act, NACARA, IIRIRA, and HRIFA.
Section 940. Technical Corrections
    Technical corrections.

SEC. 104. WEED AND SEED STRATEGIES.

    (a) In General.--From amounts made available under section 
103(c), the Director of the Office of Weed and Seed Strategies 
may implement strategies, to be known as Weed and Seed 
strategies, to prevent, control, and reduce violent crime, 
criminal drug-related activity, and gang activity in designated 
Weed-and-Seed communities. Each such strategy shall involve 
both of the following activities:
            (1) Weeding.--Activities, to be known as Weeding 
        activities, which shall include promoting and 
        coordinating a broad spectrum of community efforts 
        (especially those of law enforcement agencies and 
        prosecutors) to arrest, and to sanction or incarcerate, 
        persons in that community who participate or engage in 
        violent crime, criminal drug-related activity, and 
        other crimes that threaten the quality of life in that 
        community.
            (2) Seeding.--Activities, to be known as Seeding 
        activities, which shall include promoting and 
        coordinating a broad spectrum of community efforts 
        (such as drug abuse education, mentoring, and 
        employment counseling) to provide--
                    (A) human services, relating to prevention, 
                intervention, or treatment, for at-risk 
                individuals and families; and
                    (B) community revitalization efforts, 
                including enforcement of building codes and 
                development of the economy.
    (b) Guidelines.--The Director shall issue guidelines for 
the development and implementation of Weed and Seed strategies 
under this section. The guidelines shall ensure that the Weed 
and Seed strategy for a community referred to in subsection (a) 
shall--
            (1) be planned and implemented through and under 
        the auspices of a steering committee, properly 
        established in the community, comprised of--
                    (A) in a voting capacity, representatives 
                of--
                            (i) appropriate law enforcement 
                        agencies; and
                            (ii) other public and private 
                        agencies, and neighborhood and 
                        community-based organizations, 
                        interested in criminal justice and 
                        community-based development and 
                        revitalization in the community; and
                    (B) in a voting capacity, both--
                            (i) the Drug Enforcement 
                        Administration's special agent in 
                        charge for the jurisdiction 
                        encompassing the community; and
                            (ii) the United States Attorney for 
                        the District encompassing the 
                        community;
            (2) describe how law enforcement agencies, other 
        public and private agencies, neighborhood and 
        community-based organizations, and interested citizens 
        are to cooperate in implementing the strategy; and
            (3) incorporate a community-policing component that 
        shall serve as a bridge between the Weeding activities 
        under subsection (a)(1) and the Seeding activities 
        under subsection (a)(2).
    (c) Designation.--For a community to be designated as a 
Weed-and-Seed community for purposes of subsection (a)--
            (1) the United States Attorney for the District 
        encompassing the community must certify to the Director 
        that--
                    (A) the community suffers from consistently 
                high levels of crime or otherwise is 
                appropriate for such designation;
                    (B) the Weed and Seed strategy proposed, 
                adopted, or implemented by the steering 
                committee has a high probability of improving 
                the criminal justice system within the 
                community and contains all the elements 
                required by the Director; and
                    (C) the steering committee is capable of 
                implementing the strategy appropriately; and
            (2) the community must agree to formulate a timely 
        and effective plan to independently sustain the 
        strategy (or, at a minimum, a majority of the best 
        practices of the strategy) when assistance under this 
        section is no longer available.
    (d) Application.--An application for designation as a Weed-
and-Seed community for purposes of subsection (a) shall be 
submitted to the Director by the steering committee of the 
community in such form, and containing such information and 
assurances, as the Director may require. The application shall 
propose--
            (1) a sustainable Weed and Seed strategy that 
        includes--
                    (A) the active involvement of the United 
                States Attorney for the District encompassing 
                the community, the Drug Enforcement 
                Administration's special agent in charge for 
                the jurisdiction encompassing the community, 
                and other Federal law enforcement agencies 
                operating in the vicinity;
                    (B) a significant community-oriented 
                policing component; and
                    (C) demonstrated coordination with 
                complementary neighborhood and community-based 
                programs and initiatives; and
            (2) a methodology with outcome measures and 
        specific objective indicia of performance to be used to 
        evaluate the effectiveness of the strategy.
    (e) Grants.--
            (1) In general.--In implementing a strategy for a 
        community under subsection (a), the Director may make 
        grants to that community.
            (2) Uses.--For each grant under this subsection, 
        the community receiving that grant--
                    (A) shall use not less than 40 percent of 
                the grant amounts for Seeding activities under 
                subsection (a)(2); and
                    (B) may not use any of the grant amounts 
                for construction, except that the Assistant 
                Attorney General may authorize use of grant 
                amounts for incidental or minor construction, 
                renovation, or remodeling.
            (3) Limitations.--A community may not receive 
        grants under this subsection (or fall within such a 
        community)--
                    (A) for a period of more than 10 fiscal 
                years;
                    (B) for more than 5 separate fiscal years, 
                except that the Assistant Attorney General may, 
                in single increments and only upon a showing of 
                extraordinary circumstances, authorize grants 
                for not more than 3 additional separate fiscal 
                years; or
                    (C) in an aggregate amount of more than 
                $1,000,000, except that the Assistant Attorney 
                General may, upon a showing of extraordinary 
                circumstances, authorize grants for not more 
                than an additional $500,000.
            (4) Distribution.--In making grants under this 
        subsection, the Director shall ensure that--
                    (A) to the extent practicable, the 
                distribution of such grants is geographically 
                equitable and includes both urban and rural 
                areas of varying population and area; and
                    (B) priority is given to communities that 
                clearly and effectively coordinate crime 
                prevention programs with other Federal programs 
                in a manner that addresses the overall needs of 
                such communities.
            (5) Federal share.--(A) Subject to subparagraph 
        (B), the Federal share of a grant under this subsection 
        may not exceed 75 percent of the total costs of the 
        projects described in the application for which the 
        grant was made.
            (B) The requirement of subparagraph (A)--
                    (i) may be satisfied in cash or in kind; 
                and
                    (ii) may be waived by the Assistant 
                Attorney General upon a determination that the 
                financial circumstances affecting the applicant 
                warrant a finding that such a waiver is 
                equitable.
            (6) Supplement, not supplant.--To receive a grant 
        under this subsection, the applicant must provide 
        assurances that the amounts received under the grant 
        shall be used to supplement, not supplant, non-Federal 
        funds that would otherwise be available for programs or 
        services provided in the community.

SEC. 105. OFFICE OF AUDIT, ASSESSMENT, AND MANAGEMENT.

    (a) Establishment.--
            (1) In general.--There is established within the 
        Office an Office of Audit, Assessment, and Management, 
        headed by a Director appointed by the Attorney General. 
        In carrying out the functions of the Office, the 
        Director shall be subject to the authority, direction, 
        and control of the Attorney General. Such authority, 
        direction, and control may be delegated only to the 
        Assistant Attorney General, without redelegation.
            (2) Purpose.--The purpose of the Office shall be to 
        carry out and coordinate performance audits of, take 
        actions to ensure compliance with the terms of, and 
        manage information with respect to, grants under 
        programs covered by subsection (b). The Director shall 
        take special conditions of the grant into account and 
        consult with the office that issued those conditions to 
        ensure appropriate compliance.
            (3) Exclusivity.--The Office shall be the exclusive 
        element of the Department of Justice, other than the 
        Inspector General, performing functions and activities 
        for the purpose specified in paragraph (2). There are 
        hereby transferred to the Office all functions and 
        activities, other than functions and activities of the 
        Inspector General, for such purpose performed 
        immediately before the date of the enactment of this 
        Act by any other element of the Department.
    (b) Covered Programs.--The programs referred to in 
subsection (a) are the following:
            (1) The program under part Q of this title.
            (2) Any grant program carried out by the Office of 
        Justice Programs.
            (3) Any other grant program carried out by the 
        Department of Justice that the Attorney General 
        considers appropriate.
    (c) Performance Audits Required.--
            (1) In general.--The Director shall select grants 
        awarded under the programs covered by subsection (b) 
        and carry out performance audits on such grants. In

SEC. 505. FORMULA.

    (a) Allocation Among States.--
            (1) In general.--Of the total amount appropriated 
        for this subpart, the Attorney General shall, except as 
        provided in paragraph (2), allocate--
                    (A) 50 percent of such remaining amount to 
                each State in amounts that bear the same ratio 
                of--
                            (i) the total population of a State 
                        to--
                            (ii) the total population of the 
                        United States; and
                    (B) 50 percent of such remaining amount to 
                each State in amounts that bear the same ratio 
                of--
                            (i) the average annual number of 
                        part 1 violent crimes of the Uniform 
                        Crime Reports of the Federal Bureau of 
                        Investigation reported by such State 
                        for the three most recent years 
                        reported by such State to--
                            (ii) the average annual number of 
                        such crimes reported by all States for 
                        such years.
            (2) Minimum allocation.--If carrying out paragraph 
        (1) would result in any State receiving an allocation 
        less than 0.25 percent of the total amount (in this 
        paragraph referred to as a ``minimum allocation 
        State''), then paragraph (1), as so carried out, shall 
        not apply, and the Attorney General shall instead--
                    (A) allocate 0.25 percent of the total 
                amount to each State; and
                    (B) using the amount remaining after 
                carrying out subparagraph (A), carry out 
                paragraph (1) in a manner that excludes each 
                minimum allocation State, including the 
                population of and the crimes reported by such 
                State.
    (b) Allocation Between States and Units of Local 
Government.--Of the amounts allocated under subsection (a)--
            (1) 60 percent shall be for direct grants to 
        States, to be allocated under subsection (c); and
            (2) 40 percent shall be for grants to be allocated 
        under subsection (d).
    (c) Allocation for State Governments.--
            (1) In general.--Of the amounts allocated under 
        subsection (b)(1), each State may retain for the 
        purposes described in section 501 an amount that bears 
        the same ratio of--
                    (A) total expenditures on criminal justice 
                by the State government in the most recently 
                completed fiscal year to--
                    (B) the total expenditure on criminal 
                justice by the State government and units of 
                local government within the State in such year.
            (2) Remaining amounts.--Except as provided in 
        subsection (e)(1), any amounts remaining after the 
        allocation required by paragraph (1) shall be made 
        available to units of local government by the State for 
        the purposes described in section 501.
    (d) Allocations to Local Governments.--
            (1) In general.--Of the amounts allocated under 
        subsection (b)(2), grants for the purposes described in 
        section 501 shall be made directly to units of local 
        government within each State in accordance with this 
        subsection, subject to subsection (e).
            (2) Allocation.--
                    (A) In general.--From the amounts referred 
                to in paragraph (1) with respect to a State (in 
                this subsection referred to as the ``local 
                amount''), the Attorney General shall allocate 
                to each unit of local government an amount 
                which bears the same ratio to such share as the 
                average annual number of part 1 violent crimes 
                reported by such unit to the Federal Bureau of 
                Investigation for the 3 most recent calendar 
                years for which such data is available bears to 
                the number of part 1 violent crimes reported by 
                all units of local government in the State in 
                which the unit is located to the Federal Bureau 
                of Investigation for such years.
                    (B) Transitional rule.--Notwithstanding 
                subparagraph (A), for fiscal years 2006, 2007, 
                and 2008, the Attorney General shall allocate 
                the local amount to units of local government 
                in the same manner that, under the Local 
                Government Law Enforcement Block Grants program 
                in effect immediately before the date of the 
                enactment of this section, the reserved amount 
                was allocated among reporting and nonreporting 
                units of local government.
            (3) Annexed units.--If a unit of local government 
        in the State has been annexed since the date of the 
        collection of the data used by the Attorney General in 
        making allocations pursuant to this section, the 
        Attorney General shall pay the amount that would have 
        been allocated to such unit of local government to the 
        unit of local government that annexed it.
            (4) Resolution of disparate allocations.--(A) 
        Notwithstanding any other provision of this subpart, 
        if--
                    (i) the Attorney General certifies that a 
                unit of local government bears more than 50 
                percent of the costs of prosecution or 
                incarceration that arise with respect to part 1 
                violent crimes reported by a specified 
                geographically constituent unit of local 
                government; and
                    (ii) but for this paragraph, the amount of 
                funds allocated under this section to--
                            (I) any one such specified 
                        geographically constituent unit of 
                        local government exceeds 150 percent of 
                        the amount allocated to the unit of 
                        local government certified pursuant to 
                        clause (i); or
                            (II) more than one such specified 
                        geographically constituent unit of 
                        local government exceeds 400 percent of 
                        the amount allocated to the unit of 
                        local government certified pursuant to 
                        clause (i),
        then in order to qualify for payment under this 
        subsection, the unit of local government certified 
        pursuant to clause (i), together with any such 
        specified geographically constituent units of local 
        government described in clause (ii), shall submit to 
        the Attorney General a joint application for the 
        aggregate of funds allocated to such units of local 
        government. Such application shall specify the amount 
        of such funds that are to be distributed to each of the 
        units of local government and the purposes for which 
        such funds are to be used. The units of local 
        government involved may establish a joint local 
        advisory board for the purposes of carrying out this 
        paragraph.
            (B) In this paragraph, the term ``geographically 
        constituent unit of local government'' means a unit of 
        local government that has jurisdiction over areas 
        located within the boundaries of an area over which a 
        unit of local government certified pursuant to clause 
        (i) has jurisdiction.
    (e) Limitation on Allocations to Units of Local 
Government.--
            (1) Maximum allocation.--No unit of local 
        government shall receive a total allocation under this 
        section that exceeds such unit's total expenditures on 
        criminal justice services for the most recently 
        completed fiscal year for which data are available. Any 
        amount in excess of such total expenditures shall be 
        allocated proportionally among units of local 
        government whose allocations under this section do not 
        exceed their total expenditures on such services.
            (2) Allocations under $10,000.--If the allocation 
        under this section to a unit of local government is 
        less than $10,000 for any fiscal year, the direct grant 
        to the State under subsection (c) shall be increased by 
        the amount of such allocation, to be distributed (for 
        the purposes described in section 501) among State 
        police departments that provide criminal justice 
        services to units of local government and units of 
        local government whose allocation under this section is 
        less than $10,000.
            (3) Non-reporting units.--No allocation under this 
        section shall be made to a unit of local government 
        that has not reported at least three years of data on 
        part 1 violent crimes of the Uniform Crime Reports to 
        the Federal Bureau of Investigation within the 
        immediately preceding 10 years.
    (f) Funds not Used by the State.--If the Attorney General 
determines, on the basis of information available during any 
grant period, that any allocation (or portion thereof) under 
this section to a State for such grant period will not be 
required, or that a State will be unable to qualify or receive 
funds under this subpart, or that a State chooses not to 
participate in the program established under this subpart, then 
such State's allocation (or portion thereof) shall be awarded 
by the Attorney General to units of local government, or 
combinations thereof, within such State, giving priority to 
those jurisdictions with the highest annual number of part 1 
violent crimes of the Uniform Crime Reports reported by the 
unit of local government to the Federal Bureau of Investigation 
for the three most recent calendar years for which such data 
are available.
    (g) Special Rules for Puerto Rico.--
            (1) All funds set aside for commonwealth 
        government.--Notwithstanding any other provision of 
        this subpart, the amounts allocated under subsection 
        (a) to Puerto Rico, 100 percent shall be for direct 
        grants to the Commonwealth government of Puerto Rico.
            (2) No local allocations.--Subsections (c) and (d) 
        shall not apply to Puerto Rico.
    (h) Units of Local Government in Louisiana.--In carrying 
out this section with respect to the State of Louisiana, the 
term ``unit of local government'' means a district attorney or 
a parish sheriff.

SEC. 506. RESERVED FUNDS.

    Of the total amount made available to carry out this 
subpart for a fiscal year, the Attorney General shall reserve 
not more than--
            (1) $20,000,000, for use by the National Institute 
        of Justice in assisting units of local government to 
        identify, select, develop, modernize, and purchase new

        to provide comprehensive technical assistance to 
        participating tribal governments. Such training and

        address the unique legal unique legal status, distinct 
        cultural ways of life, and geographic circumstances of 
        the Indian tribes receiving funds under the program.
    (e) Recipient Requirements.--
            (1) In general.--Indian tribes may receive funds 
        under the program required by this section as 
        individual tribes or as a consortium of tribes.
            (2) Subgrants and other arrangements.--
        Participating tribes may make subgrants or enter into 
        contracts or cooperative agreements with the funds 
        under the program to enhance the safety of, and end 
        domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and 
        stalking against, members of Indian tribes.
            (3) Set aside.--Participating tribes must set aside 
        no less than 50 percent of their total allocation under 
        this section for tribally specific domestic violence, 
        dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking victim 
        services and advocacy for members of Indian tribes. The 
        services supported with funds under the program must be 
        designed to address the unique circumstances of the 
        individuals to be served, including the customary 
        practices and linguistic needs of the individuals

        give preference to tribal organizations or tribal 
        nonprofit organizations providing advocacy services to 
        members of Indian tribes within the community to be 
        served such as a safety center or shelter program for 
        members of Indian tribes. In the case where the above 
        organizations do not exist within the participating 
        tribe, the participation and support from members of 
        Indian tribes in the community to be served is 
        sufficient to meet this requirement.

        participating in the program required by this section. 
        The expedited process shall facilitate participating 
        tribes' submission of information--
                    (A) outlining project activities;
                    (B) describing how the project activities 
                will enhance the Indian tribe's response to 
                domestic violence, dating violence, sexual 
                assault, and stalking against members of Indian 
                tribes; and
                    (C) identifying the tribal partner 
                providing advocacy and related services for 
                members of Indian tribes who are victims of 
                crimes of domestic violence, dating violence, 
                sexual assault, and stalking.
            (2) Reporting and evaluation.--The Director shall 
        alleviate administrative burdens upon participating 
        Indian tribes by--
                    (A) developing a reporting and evaluation 
                process relevant to the distinct governance of 
                Indian tribes;
                    (B) requiring only essential data to be 
                collected; and
                    (C) limiting reporting to an annual basis.
            (3) Grant period.--The Director shall award grants 
        for a two-year period, with a possible extension of 
        another two years to implement projects under the 
        grant.
    (g) Presumption That Matching Funds not Required.--
            (1) In general.--Given the unique political 
        relationship between the United States and Indian 
        tribes differentiates tribes from other entities that 
        deal with or are affected by, the Federal Government, 
        the Director shall not require an Indian tribe to match
