     SEC. ____. PRIVATE SECURITY OFFICERS RECORD REVIEWS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       (1) employment of private security officers in the United 
     States is growing rapidly;
       (2) private security officers function as an adjunct to, 
     but not a replacement for, public law enforcement by helping 
     to reduce and prevent crime;
       (3) such private security officers protect individuals, 
     property, and proprietary information, and provide protection 
     to such diverse operations as banks, hospitals, research and 
     development centers, manufacturing facilities, defense and 
     aerospace contractors, high technology businesses, nuclear 
     power plants, chemical companies, oil and gas refineries, 
     airports, communication facilities and operations, office 
     complexes, schools, residential properties, apartment 
     complexes, gated communities, and others;
       (4) sworn law enforcement officers provide significant 
     services to the citizens of the United States in its public 
     areas, and are supplemented by private security officers;
       (5) the threat of additional terrorist attacks requires 
     cooperation between public and private sectors and demands 
     professional, reliable, and responsible security officers for 
     the protection of people, facilities, and institutions;
       (6) the trend in the Nation toward growth in such security 
     services has accelerated rapidly;
       (7) such growth makes available more public sector law 
     enforcement officers to combat serious and violent crimes, 
     including terrorism;
       (8) the American public deserves the employment of 
     qualified, well-trained private security personnel as an 
     adjunct to sworn law enforcement officers; and
       (9) private security officers and applicants for private 
     security officer positions should be thoroughly screened and

       (A) identifying and addressing false positive results of 
     polygraph examinations;
       (B) ensuring that adverse personnel actions are not taken 
     against an individual solely by reason of the physiological 
     reaction of the individual to a question in a polygraph 
     examination, unless--
       (i) reasonable efforts are first made independently to 
     determine through alternative means, the veracity of the 
     response of the individual to the question; and
       (ii) the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation 
     determines personally that the personnel action is justified;
       (C) ensuring quality assurance and quality control in 
     accordance with any guidance provided by the Department of

     Intelligence; and
       (D) allowing any employee or contractor who is the subject 
     of a counterintelligence screening polygraph examination 
     under the polygraph program, upon written request, to have 
     prompt access to any unclassified reports regarding an 
     examination that relates to any adverse personnel action 
     taken with respect to the individual.

     SEC. ____. NATIONAL DEFENSE RAIL CONNECTION.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       (1) A comprehensive rail transportation network is a key 
     element of an integrated transportation system for the North 
     American continent, and federal leadership is required to 
     address the needs of a reliable, safe, and secure rail 
     network, and to connect all areas of the United States for 
     national defense and economic development, as previously done 
     for the interstate highway system, the Federal aviation 
     network, and the transcontinental railroad;
       (2) The creation and use of joint use corridors for rail 
     transportation, fiber optics, pipelines, and utilities are an 
     efficient and appropriate approach to optimizing the nation's 
     interconnectivity and national security;
       (3) Government assistance and encouragement in the 
     development of the transcontinental rail system successfully 
     led to the growth of economically strong and socially stable 
     communities throughout the western United States;
       (4) Government assistance and encouragement in the 
     development of the Alaska Railroad between Seward, Alaska and 
     Fairbanks, Alaska successfully led to the growth of 
     economically strong and socially stable communities along the 
     route, which today provide homes for over 70% of Alaska's 
     total population;
       (5) While alaska and the remainder of the continential 
     United States has been connected by highway and air 
     transportation, no rail connection exists despite the fact 
     that Alaska is accessible by land routes and is a logical 
     destination for the North American rail system;
       (6) Rail transportation in otherwise isolated areas is an 
     appropriate means of providing controlled areas, reducing 
     overall impacts to environmentally sensitive areas over other 
     methods of land-based access;
       (7) Because Congress originally authorized 1,000 miles of 
     rail line to be built in Alaska, and because of the system 
     today covers only approximately half that distance, 
     substantially limiting its beneficial effect on the economy 
     of Alaska and the nation, it is appropriate to support the 
     expansion of the Alaska system to ensure that the originally 
     planned benefits are achieved;
       (8) Alaska has an abundance of natural resources, both 
     material and aesthetic, access to which would significantly 
     increase Alaska's contribution to the national economy;
       (9) Alaska contains many key national defense 
     installations, including sites chosen for the construction of 
     the first phase of the National Missile Defense system, the 
     cost of which could be significantly reduced if rail 
     transportation were available for the movement of materials 
     necessary for construction and for the secure movement of 
     launch vehicles, fuel and other operational supplies;
       (10) The 106th Congress recognized the potential benefits 
     of establishing a rail connection to Alaska by enacting 
     legislation to authorize a U.S.--Canada bilaterail commission 
     to study the feasibility of linking the rail system in Alaska 
     to the nearest appropriate point in Canada of the North 
     American rail network; and
       (11) In support of pending bilaterial activities between 
     the United States and Canada, it is appropriate for the 
     United States to undertake activities relating to elements 
     within the United States.
       (b) Identification of National Defense Railroad-Utility 
     Corridor.--
       (1) Within one year from the date of enactment of this Act, 
     the Secretary of the Interior, in consultation with the 
     Secretary of Transportation, the State of Alaska and the 
     Alaska Railroad Corporation, shall identify a proposed 
     national defense railroad-utility corridor linking the 
     existing corridor of the Alaska Railroad to the vicinity of 
     the proposed National Missile Defense facilities at Fort 
     Greely, Alaska. The corridor shall be at least 500 feet wide 
     and shall also identify land for such terminals, stations, 
     maintenance facilities, switching yards, and material sites 
     as are considered necessary.
       (2) The identification of the corridor under paragraph (1) 
     shall include information providing a complete legal 
     description for and

[[Page S8777]]

     noting the current ownership of the proposed corridor and 
     associated land.
       (3) In identifying the corridor under paragraph (1), the 
     secretary shall consider, at a minimum, the following 
     factors:
       (A) The proximity of national defense installations and 
     national defense considerations;
       (B) The location of and access to natural resources that 
     could contribute to economic development of the region;
       (C) Grade and alignment standards that are commensurate 
     with rail and utility construction standards and that 
     minimize the prospect of at-grade railroad and highway 
     crossings;
       (D) Availability of construction materials;
       (E) Safety;
       (F) Effects on and service to adjacent communities and 
     potential intermodal transportation connections;
       (G) Environmental concerns;
       (H) Use of public land to the maximum degree possible;
       (I) Minimization of probable construction costs;
       (J) An estimate of probable construction costs and methods 
     of financing such costs through a combination of private, 
     state, and federal sources; and
       (K) Appropriate utility elements for the corridor, 
     including but not limited to petroleum product pipelines, 
     fiber-optic telecommunication facilities, and electrical 
     power transmission lines, and
       (L) Prior and established traditional uses.
       (4) The Secretary may, as part of the corridor 
     identification, include issues related to the further 
     extension of such corridor to a connection with the nearest 
     appropriate terminus of the North American rail network in 
     Canada.
       (c) Negotiation and Land Transfer.--
       (1) The Secretary of the Interior shall--
       (A) upon completion of the corridor identification in 
     subsection (b), negotiate the acquisition of any lands in the 
     corridor which are not federally owned through an exchange 
     for lands of equal or greater value held by the federal 
     government elsewhere in Alaska; and
       (B) upon completion of the acquisition of lands under 
     paragraph (A), the Secretary shall convey to the Alaska

       At the appropriate place, insert the following:

     SEC.   . FOOD AND DRINKING WATER SUPPLY SECURITY PROGRAM.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       (1) section 413 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief 
     and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5180) authorizes the 
     purchase of food commodities to provide adequate supplies of 
     food for use in any area of the United States in the event of 
     a major disaster or emergency in the area;
       (2) the current terrorist threat was not envisioned when 
     that Act was enacted, and the Act does not specifically 
     require prepositioning of food supplies;
       (3) the maintenance of safe food and drinking water 
     supplies is essential;
       (4) stored food supplies for major cities are minimal;
       (5) if terrorist activity were to disrupt the 
     transportation system, affect food supplies directly, or 
     create a situation in which a quarantine would have to be 
     declared, it would require a considerable period of time to 
     ensure delivery of safe food supplies;
       (6) terrorist activity could also disrupt drinking water 
     supplies; and
       (7) accordingly, emergency food and drinking water 
     repositories should be established at such locations as will 
     ensure the availability of food and drinking water to 
     populations in area that are vulnerable to terrorist 
     activity.
       (b) Report.--
       (1) In general.--Not later than 180 days after the date of 
     enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security 
     shall submit to Congress a report with information necessary 
     to the establishment of secure prepositioned emergency 
     supplies of food and drinking water for major population 
     centers for use in the event of a breakdown in the food 
     supply and delivery chain.
       (2) Considerations.--The report shall consider the 
     likelihood of such breakdowns occurring from accidents and 
     natural disasters as well as terrorist activity.
       (3) Contents.--The report shall--
       (A) identify the 20 most vulnerable metropolitan areas or 
     population concentrations in the United States; and
       (B) make recommendations regarding the appropriate number 
     of days' supply of food to be maintained to ensure the 
     security of the population in each such area.
       (c) Repositories.--
       (1) In general.--Not later than 1 year after the date of 
     enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security 
     shall establish secure repositories for food and drinking 
     water in each of the 20 areas identified in the report.
       (2) Accessibility.--The repositories shall be locally 
     accessible without special equipment in the event of a major 
     transportation breakdown.
       (d) Purchase of Supplies.--
       (1) In general.--The Secretary of Agriculture shall 
     purchase and maintain food and water stock for each 
     repository, consistent with determinations made by the 
     Secretary of Homeland Security.
       (2) Phasing in.--Purchases and full stocking of 
     repositories may be phased in over a period of not more than 
     3 years.
       (2) Products of the United States.--The Secretary of 
     Agriculture shall purchase for the repositories food and 
     water supplies produced, processed, and packaged exclusively 
     in the United States.
       (4) Selection.--Food and water supplies for the 
     repositories shall be selected and managed so as to provide--
       (A) quantities and packaging suitable for immediate 
     distribution to individuals and families;
       (B) forms of food products suitable for immediate 
     consumption in an emergency without heating and without 
     further preparation;
       (C) packaging that ensures that food products are maximally 
     resistant to postproduction contamination or adulteration;
       (D) packaging and preservation technology to ensure that 
     the quality of stored food and

[[Page S8778]]

     water is maintained for a minimum of 4 years at ambient 
     temperatures;
       (E) a range of food products, including meats, seafood, 
     dairy, and vegetable (including fruit and grain) products, 
     emphasizing, insofar as practicable--
       (i) food products that meet multiple nutritional needs, 
     such as those composed primarily of high-quality protein in 
     combination with essential minerals; and
       (ii) food products with a high ratio of nutrient value to 
     cost;
       (F) rotation of stock, in repositories on a regular basis 
     at intervals of not longer than 3 years; and
       (G) use of stocks of food being rotated out of repositories 
     for other suitable purposes.
       (e) Authorization of Appropriations.--There are authorized 
     to be appropriated such sums as are necessary to carry out 
     this section.

     with the technologies needed to support their unique mission.

     of the civil support teams is available commercially, while

     efficient training designed for their unique mission.
       (6) National Guard personnel involved in other homeland 
     security missions also require technologies and training in 
     support of such missions.
       (b) Establishment.--Not later than one year after the date 
     of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall, in 
     coordination with the Secretary of Defense, establish a

     Defense, the Center shall have ready access to a military 
     installation that supports the National Guard.
       (d) Mission.--The mission of the Center is as follows:
       (1) To support the development and procurement of 
     technologies for the Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil

     units of the National Guard engaged in homeland defense, for 
     the purpose of assisting such teams in carrying out their 
     missions.
       (2) To support the development and deployment of an 
     improved training curricula to support the Weapons of Mass 
     Destruction Civil Support Teams of the National Guard.

     SEC. 3002. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) The use of computers and the Internet is rapidly 
     transforming societal interactions and the relationships 
     among citizens, private businesses, and the Government.
       (2) The Federal Government has had uneven success in 
     applying advances in information technology to enhance 
     governmental functions and services, achieve more efficient 
     performance, increase access to Government information, and 
     increase citizen participation in Government.

[[Page S8805]]

       (3) Most Internet-based services of the Federal Government 
     are developed and presented separately, according to the 
     jurisdictional boundaries of an individual department or 
     agency, rather than being integrated cooperatively according 
     to function or topic.
       (4) Internet-based Government services involving 
     interagency cooperation are especially difficult to develop 
     and promote, in part because of a lack of sufficient funding 
     mechanisms to support such interagency cooperation.
       (5) Electronic Government has its impact through improved 
     Government performance and outcomes within and across 
     agencies.
       (6) Electronic Government is a critical element in the 
     management of Government, to be implemented as part of a 
     management framework that also addresses finance, 
     procurement, human capital, and other challenges to improve 
     the performance of Government.
       (7) To take full advantage of the improved Government 
     performance that can be achieved through the use of Internet-
     based technology requires strong leadership, better 
     organization, improved interagency collaboration, and more 
     focused oversight of agency compliance with statutes related 
     to information resource management.
       (b) Purposes.--The purposes of this division are the 
     following:
       (1) To provide effective leadership of Federal Government 
     efforts to develop and promote electronic Government services 
     and processes by establishing an Administrator of a new 
     Office of Electronic Government within the Office of 
     Management and Budget.
       (2) To promote use of the Internet and other information 
     technologies to provide increased opportunities for citizen 
     participation in Government.
       (3) To promote interagency collaboration in providing 
     electronic Government services, where this collaboration 
     would improve the service to citizens by integrating related 
     functions, and in the use of internal electronic Government 
     processes, where this collaboration would improve the 
     efficiency and effectiveness of the processes.
       (4) To improve the ability of the Government to achieve 
     agency missions and program performance goals.
       (5) To promote the use of the Internet and emerging 
     technologies within and across Government agencies to provide 
     citizen-centric Government information and services.
       (6) To reduce costs and burdens for businesses and other 
     Government entities.
       (7) To promote better informed decisionmaking by policy 
     makers.
       (8) To promote access to high quality Government 
     information and services across multiple channels.
       (9) To make the Federal Government more transparent and 
     accountable.
       (10) To transform agency operations by utilizing, where 
     appropriate, best practices from public and private sector 
     organizations.
       (11) To provide enhanced access to Government information 
     and services in a manner consistent with laws regarding 
     protection of personal privacy, national security, records 
     retention, access for persons with disabilities, and other 
     relevant laws.

[[Page S8817]]

         TITLE ____--HOMELAND SECURITY INFORMATION SHARING ACT

     SEC. ____01. SHORT TITLE.

       This title may be cited as the ``Homeland Security 
     Information Sharing Act''.

     SEC. ____02. FINDINGS AND SENSE OF CONGRESS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The Federal Government is required by the Constitution 
     to provide for the common defense, which includes terrorist 
     attack.
       (2) The Federal Government relies on State and local 
     personnel to protect against terrorist attack.
       (3) The Federal Government collects, creates, manages, and 
     protects classified and sensitive but unclassified 
     information to enhance homeland security.
       (4) Some homeland security information is needed by the 
     State and local personnel to prevent and prepare for 
     terrorist attack.
       (5) The needs of State and local personnel to have access 
     to relevant homeland security information to combat terrorism 
     must be reconciled with the need to preserve the protected 
     status of such information and to protect the sources and 
     methods used to acquire such information.
       (6) Granting security clearances to certain State and local 
     personnel is one way to facilitate the sharing of information 
     regarding specific terrorist threats among Federal, State, 
     and local levels of government.
       (7) Methods exist to declassify, redact, or otherwise adapt 
     classified information so it may be shared with State and 
     local personnel without the need for granting additional 
     security clearances.
       (8) State and local personnel have capabilities and 
     opportunities to gather information on suspicious activities 
     and terrorist threats not possessed by Federal agencies.
       (9) The Federal Government and State and local governments 
     and agencies in other jurisdictions may benefit from such 
     information.
       (10) Federal, State, and local governments and 
     intelligence, law enforcement, and other emergency 
     preparation and response agencies must act in partnership to 
     maximize the benefits of information gathering and analysis 
     to prevent and respond to terrorist attacks.
       (11) Information systems, including the National Law 
     Enforcement Telecommunications System and the Terrorist 
     Threat Warning System, have been established for rapid 
     sharing of classified and sensitive but unclassified 
     information among Federal, State, and local entities.
       (12) Increased efforts to share homeland security 
     information should avoid duplicating existing information 
     systems.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that 
     Federal, State, and local entities should share homeland 
     security information to the maximum extent practicable, with 
     special emphasis on hard-to-reach urban and rural 
     communities.

     SEC. ____03. FACILITATING HOMELAND SECURITY INFORMATION 
                   SHARING PROCEDURES.

       (a) Presidential Procedures for Determining Extent of 
     Sharing of Homeland Security Information.--(1) The President 
     shall prescribe procedures under which relevant Federal 
     agencies determine--
       (A) whether, how, and to what extent homeland security 
     information may be shared with appropriate State and local 
     personnel, and with which such personnel it may be shared;
       (B) how to identify and safeguard homeland security 
     information that is sensitive but unclassified; and
       (C) to the extent such information is in classified form, 
     whether, how, and to what extent to remove classified 
     information, as appropriate, and with which such personnel it 
     may be shared after such information is removed.
       (2) The President shall ensure that such procedures apply 
     to all agencies of the Federal Government.
       (3) Such procedures shall not change the substantive 
     requirements for the classification and safeguarding of 
     classified information.
       (4) Such procedures shall not change the requirements and 
     authorities to protect sources and methods.
       (b) Procedures for Sharing of Homeland Security 
     Information.--(1) Under procedures prescribed by the 
     President, all appropriate agencies, including the 
     intelligence community, shall, through information sharing 
     systems, share homeland security information with appropriate 
     State and local personnel to the extent such information may 
     be shared, as determined in accordance with subsection (a), 
     together with assessments of the credibility of such 
     information.
       (2) Each information sharing system through which 
     information is shared under paragraph (1) shall--
       (A) have the capability to transmit unclassified or 
     classified information, though the procedures and recipients 
     for each capability may differ;
       (B) have the capability to restrict delivery of information 
     to specified subgroups by geographic location, type of 
     organization, position of a recipient within an organization, 
     or a recipient's need to know such information;
       (C) be configured to allow the efficient and effective 
     sharing of information; and
       (D) be accessible to appropriate State and local personnel.
       (3) The procedures prescribed under paragraph (1) shall 
     establish conditions on the use of information shared under 
     paragraph (1)--
       (A) to limit the redissemination of such information to 
     ensure that such information is not used for an unauthorized 
     purpose;
       (B) to ensure the security and confidentiality of such 
     information;
       (C) to protect the constitutional and statutory rights of 
     any individuals who are subjects of such information; and
       (D) to provide data integrity through the timely removal 
     and destruction of obsolete or erroneous names and 
     information.
       (4) The procedures prescribed under paragraph (1) shall 
     ensure, to the greatest extent practicable, that the 
     information sharing system through which information is 
     shared under such paragraph include existing information 
     sharing systems, including, but not limited to, the National 
     Law Enforcement Telecommunications System, the Regional 
     Information Sharing System, and the Terrorist Threat Warning 
     System of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
       (5) Each appropriate Federal agency, as determined by the 
     President, shall have access to each information sharing 
     system through which information is shared under paragraph 
     (1), and shall therefore have access to all information, as 
     appropriate, shared under such paragraph.
       (6) The procedures prescribed under paragraph (1) shall 
     ensure that appropriate State and local personnel are 
     authorized to use such information sharing systems--
       (A) to access information shared with such personnel; and
       (B) to share, with others who have access to such 
     information sharing systems, the homeland security 
     information of their own jurisdictions, which shall be marked 
     appropriately as pertaining to potential terrorist activity.
       (7) Under procedures prescribed jointly by the Director of 
     Central Intelligence and the Attorney General, each 
     appropriate Federal agency, as determined by the President, 
     shall review and assess the information shared under 
     paragraph (6) and integrate such information with existing 
     intelligence.
       (c) Sharing of Classified Information and Sensitive but 
     Unclassified Information With State and Local Personnel.--(1) 
     The President shall prescribe procedures under which Federal 
     agencies may, to the extent the President considers 
     necessary, share with appropriate State and local personnel 
     homeland security information that remains classified or 
     otherwise protected after the determinations prescribed under 
     the procedures set forth in subsection (a).
       (2) It is the sense of Congress that such procedures may 
     include one or more of the following means:
       (A) Carrying out security clearance investigations with 
     respect to appropriate State and local personnel.
       (B) With respect to information that is sensitive but 
     unclassified, entering into nondisclosure agreements with 
     appropriate State and local personnel.
       (C) Increased use of information-sharing partnerships that 
     include appropriate State and local personnel, such as the 
     Joint Terrorism Task Forces of the Federal Bureau of 
     Investigation, the Anti-Terrorism Task Forces of the 
     Department of Justice, and regional Terrorism Early Warning 
     Groups.
       (d) Responsible Officials.--For each affected Federal 
     agency, the head of such agency shall designate an official 
     to administer this title with respect to such agency.
       (e) Federal Control of Information.--Under procedures 
     prescribed under this section, information obtained by a 
     State or local government from a Federal agency under this 
     section shall remain under the control of the Federal agency, 
     and a State or local law authorizing or requiring such a 
     government to disclose information shall not apply to such 
     information.
       (f) Definitions.--In this section:

     SEC. ____02. FINDINGS.

       Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) In the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist 
     attacks on our country, communities all across American now 
     find themselves on the front lines in the war against 
     terrorism on United States soil.
       (2) We recognize that these communities will be forced to 
     shoulder a significant portion of the burden that goes along 
     with that responsibility. We believe that local governments 
     should not have to bear that responsibility alone.
       (3) Our homeland defense will only be as strong as the 
     weakest link at the State and local level. By providing our 
     communities with the resources and tools they need to bolster 
     emergency response efforts and provide for other emergency 
     response initiatives, we will have a better-prepared home 
     front and a stronger America.

     SEC. ____05. STATEMENT OF ACTIVITIES AND REVIEW.

       (a) Application.--Prior to the receipt in any fiscal year 
     of a grant under section ____07(b) by any metropolitan city 
     or urban county, under section ____07(d) by any State, or 
     under section ____07(d)(2) by any unit of general local 
     government, the grantee shall have indicated its interest in 
     receiving funds by preparing a statement of homeland security 
     objectives and projected use of funds and shall have provided 
     the Director with the certifications required in subsection 
     (b) and, where appropriate, subsection (c). In the case of 
     metropolitan cities and urban counties receiving grants 
     pursuant to section ____07(b) and in the case of units of 
     general local government receiving grants pursuant to section 
     ____07(d)(2), the statement of projected use of funds shall 
     consist of proposed homeland security activities. In the case 
     of States receiving grants pursuant to section ____07(d), the 
     statement of projected use of funds shall consist of the 
     method by which the States will distribute funds to units of 
     general local government. In preparing the statement, the 
     grantee shall consider any view of appropriate law 
     enforcement, and emergency response authorities and may, if 
     deemed appropriate by the grantee, modify the proposed 
     statement. A copy of the final statement shall be furnished 
     to the Director, the Attorney General, and the Office of 
     Homeland Security together with the certifications required 
     under subsection (b) and, where appropriate, subsection (c). 
     Any final statement of activities may be modified or amended 
     from time to time by the grantee in accordance with the same 
     procedures required in this paragraph for the preparation and 
     submission of such statement.
       (b) Certification of Enumerated Criteria by Grantee to 
     Secretary.--Any grant under section ____07 shall be made only 
     if the grantee certifies to the satisfaction of the Director 
     that--
       (1) it has developed a homeland security plan pursuant to 
     section ____05 that identifies both short- and long-term 
     homeland security needs that have been developed in 
     accordance with the primary objective and requirements of 
     this title; and
       (2) the grantee will comply with the other provisions of 
     this title and with other applicable laws.
       (c) Submission of Annual Performance Reports, Audits and 
     Adjustments.--
       (1) In general.--Each grantee shall submit to the Director, 
     at a time determined by the Director, a performance and 
     evaluation report concerning the use of funds made available 
     under section ____07, together with an assessment by the 
     grantee of the relationship of such use to the objectives 
     identified in the grantee's statement under subsection (a). 
     The Director shall encourage and assist national associations 
     of grantees eligible under section ____07, national 
     associations of States, and national associations of units of 
     general local government in nonqualifying areas to develop 
     and recommend to the Director, within 1 year after the 
     effective date of this sentence, uniform recordkeeping, 
     performance reporting, evaluation reporting, and auditing 
     requirements for such grantees, States, and units of general 
     local government, respectively. Based on the Director's 
     approval of these recommendations, the Director shall 
     establish such requirements for use by such grantees, States, 
     and units of general local government.
       (2) Reviews and audits.--The Director shall, at least on an 
     annual basis, make such reviews and audits as may be 
     necessary or appropriate to determine--
       (A) in the case of grants made under section ____07(b), 
     whether the grantee has carried out its activities and, where 
     applicable, whether the grantee has carried out those 
     activities and its certifications in accordance with the 
     requirements and the primary objectives of this title and 
     with other applicable laws, and whether the grantee has a 
     continuing capacity to carry out those activities in a timely 
     manner; and
       (B) in the case of grants to States made under section 
     ____07(d), whether the State has distributed funds to units 
     of general local government in a timely manner and in 
     conformance to the method of distribution described in its 
     statement, whether the State has carried out its 
     certifications in compliance with the requirements of this 
     title and other applicable laws, and whether the State has 
     made such reviews and audits of the units of general local 
     government as may be necessary or appropriate to determine 
     whether they have satisfied the applicable performance 
     criteria described in subparagraph (A).
       (3) Adjustments.--The Director may make appropriate 
     adjustments in the amount of the annual grants in accordance 
     with the Director's findings under this subsection. With 
     respect to assistance made available to units of general 
     local government under section ____07(d), the Director may 
     adjust, reduce, or withdraw such assistance, or take other 
     action as appropriate in accordance with the Director's 
     reviews and audits under this subsection, except that funds 
     already expended on eligible activities under this title 
     shall not be recaptured or deducted from future assistance to 
     such units of general local government.
       (d) Audits.--Insofar as they relate to funds provided under 
     this title, the financial transactions of recipients of such 
     funds may be audited by the General Accounting Office under 
     such rules and regulations as may be prescribed by the 
     Comptroller General of the United States. The representatives 
     of the General Accounting Office shall have access to all 
     books, accounts, records, reports, files, and other papers, 
     things, or property belonging to or in use by such recipients 
     pertaining to such financial transactions and necessary to 
     facilitate the audit.
       (e) Metropolitan City as Part of Urban County.--In any case 
     in which a metropolitan city is located, in whole or in part, 
     within an urban county, the Director may, upon the joint 
     request of such city and county, approve the inclusion of the 
     metropolitan city as part of the urban county for purposes of 
     submitting a statement under section ____05 and carrying out 
     activities under this title.

     SEC. ____07. ALLOCATION AND DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS.

       (a) Allocation and Distribution of Funds; Set-Aside for 
     Indian Tribes.--
       (1) Allocation.--For each fiscal year, of the amount 
     approved in an appropriation Act under section ____04 for 
     grants in a year (excluding the amounts provided for use in 
     accordance with section ____06), the Director shall reserve 
     for grants to Indian tribes 1 percent of the amount 
     appropriated under such section. The Director shall provide 
     for distribution of amounts under this paragraph to Indian 
     tribes on the basis of a competition conducted pursuant to 
     specific criteria for the selection of Indian tribes to 
     receive such amounts. The criteria shall be contained in a 
     regulation promulgated by the Director after notice and 
     public comment.
       (2) Remaining allocation.--Of the amount remaining after 
     allocations pursuant to paragraph (1), 70 percent shall be 
     allocated by the Director to metropolitan cities and urban 
     counties. Except as otherwise specifically authorized, each 
     metropolitan city and urban county shall be entitled to an 
     annual grant, to the extent authorized beyond fiscal year 
     2002, from such allocation in an amount not exceeding its 
     basic amount computed pursuant to paragraph (1) or (2) of 
     subsection (b).
       (b) Computation of Amount Allocated to Metropolitan Cities 
     and Urban Counties.--
       (1) In general.--The Director shall determine the amount to 
     be allocated to each metropolitan city based on the 
     population of that metropolitan city.
       (2) Urban counties.--The Director shall determine the 
     amount to be allocated to each urban county based on the 
     population of that urban county.
       (3) Exclusions.--In computing amounts or exclusions under 
     this section with respect to any urban county, there shall be 
     excluded units of general local government located in the 
     county the populations that are not counted in determining 
     the eligibility of the urban county to receive a grant under 
     this subsection, except that there shall be included any 
     independent city (as defined by the Bureau of the Census) 
     which--
       (A) is not part of any county;

[[Page S8838]]

       (B) is not eligible for a grant pursuant to subsection 
     (b)(1);
       (C) is contiguous to the urban county;
       (D) has entered into cooperation agreements with the urban 
     county which provide that the urban county is to undertake or 
     to assist in the undertaking of essential community 
     development and housing assistance activities with respect to 
     such independent city; and
       (E) is not included as a part of any other unit of general 
     local government for purposes of this section.
     Any independent city that is included in any fiscal year for 
     purposes of computing amounts pursuant to the preceding 
     sentence shall not be eligible to receive assistance under 
     subsection (d) with respect to such fiscal year.
       (4) Inclusions.--In computing amounts under this section 
     with respect to any urban county, there shall be included all 
     of the area of any unit of local government which is part of, 
     but is not located entirely within the boundaries of, such 
     urban county if the part of such unit of local government 
     which is within the boundaries of such urban county would 
     otherwise be included in computing the amount for such urban 
     county under this section, and if the part of such unit of 
     local government that is not within the boundaries of such 
     urban county is not included as a part of any other unit of 
     local government for the purpose of this section. Any amount 
     received by such urban county under this section may be used 
     with respect to the part of such unit of local government 
     that is outside the boundaries of such urban county.
       (5) Population.--(A) Where data are available, the amount 
     determined under paragraph (1) for a metropolitan city that 
     has been formed by the consolidation of one or more 
     metropolitan cities with an urban county shall be equal to 
     the sum of the amounts that would have been determined under 
     paragraph (1) for the metropolitan city or cities and the 
     balance of the consolidated government, if such consolidation 
     had not occurred. This paragraph shall apply only to any 
     consolidation that--
       (i) included all metropolitan cities that received grants 
     under this section for the fiscal year preceding such 
     consolidation and that were located within the urban county;
       (ii) included the entire urban county that received a grant 
     under this section for the fiscal year preceding such 
     consolidation; and
       (iii) took place on or after January 1, 2002.
       (B) The population growth rate of all metropolitan cities 
     referred to in section ____03 shall be based on the 
     population of--
       (i) metropolitan cities other than consolidated governments 
     the grant for which is determined under this paragraph; and
       (ii) cities that were metropolitan cities before their 
     incorporation into consolidated governments. For purposes of 
     calculating the entitlement share for the balance of the 
     consolidated government under this paragraph, the entire 
     balance shall be considered to have been an urban county.
       (c) Reallocation.--
       (1) In general.--Except as provided in paragraph (2), any 
     amounts allocated to a metropolitan city or an urban county 
     pursuant to the preceding provisions of this section that are 
     not received by the city or county for a fiscal year because 
     of failure to meet the requirements of subsections (a) and 
     (b) of section ____05, or that otherwise became available, 
     shall be reallocated in the succeeding fiscal year to the 
     other metropolitan cities and urban counties in the same 
     metropolitan area that certify to the satisfaction of the 
     Director that they would be adversely affected by the loss of 
     such amounts from the metropolitan area. The amount of the 
     share of funds reallocated under this paragraph for any 
     metropolitan city or urban county shall bear the same ratio 
     to the total of such reallocated funds in the metropolitan 
     area as the amount of funds awarded to the city or county for 
     the fiscal year in which the reallocated funds become 
     available bears to the total amount of funds awarded to all 
     metropolitan cities and urban counties in the same 
     metropolitan area for that fiscal year.
       (2) Transfer.--Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph 
     (1), the Director may upon request transfer responsibility to 
     any metropolitan city for the administration of any amounts 
     received, but not obligated, by the urban county in which 
     such city is located if--
       (A) such city was an included unit of general local 
     government in such county prior to the qualification of such 
     city as a metropolitan city;
       (B) such amounts were designated and received by such 
     county for use in such city prior to the qualification of 
     such city as a metropolitan city; and
       (C) such city and county agree to such transfer of 
     responsibility for the administration of such amounts.
       (d) Allocation to States on Behalf of Non-qualifying 
     Communities.--
       (1) In general.--Of the amount approved in an appropriation 
     Act under section ____04 that remains after allocations 
     pursuant to paragraphs (1) and (2) of subsection (a), 30 
     percent shall be allocated among the States for use in 
     nonqualifying areas. The allocation for each State shall be 
     based on the population of that State, relative to the 
     populations of all States, excluding the population of 
     qualifying communities. The Director shall, in order to 
     compensate for the discrepancy between the total of the 
     amounts to be allocated under this paragraph and the total of 
     the amounts available under such paragraph, make a pro rata 
     reduction of each amount allocated to the nonqualifying 
     communities in each State under such paragraph so that the 
     nonqualifying communities in each State will receive an 
     amount that represents the same percentage of the total 
     amount available under such paragraph as the percentage which 
     the nonqualifying areas of the same State would have received 
     under such paragraph if the total amount available under such 
     paragraph had equaled the total amount which was allocated 
     under such paragraph.
       (2) Distribution.--(A) Amounts allocated under paragraph 
     (1) shall be distributed to units of general local government 
     located in nonqualifying areas of the State to carry out 
     activities in accordance with the provisions of this title--
       (i) by a State that has elected, in such manner and at such 
     time as the Director shall prescribe, to distribute such 
     amounts consistent with the statement submitted under section 
     ____05(a); or
       (ii) by the Director, in any case described in subparagraph 
     (B), for use by units of general local government in 
     accordance with paragraph (3)(B).
       (B) The Director shall distribute amounts allocated under 
     paragraph (1) if the State has not elected to distribute such 
     amounts.
       (C) To receive and distribute amounts allocated under 
     paragraph (1), the State must certify that it, with respect 
     to units of general local government in nonqualifying areas--
       (i) provides or will provide technical assistance to units 
     of general local government in connection with homeland 
     security initiatives;
       (ii) will not refuse to distribute such amounts to any unit 
     of general local government on the basis of the particular 
     eligible activity selected by such unit of general local 
     government to meet its homeland security objectives, except 
     that this clause may not be considered to prevent a State 
     from establishing priorities in distributing such amounts on 
     the basis of the activities selected; and
       (iii) has consulted with local elected officials from among 
     units of general local government located in nonqualifying 
     areas of that State in determining the method of distribution 
     of funds required by subparagraph (A).
       (D) To receive and distribute amounts allocated under 
     paragraph (1), the State shall certify that each unit of 
     general local government to be distributed funds will be 
     required to identify its homeland security objectives, and 
     the activities to be undertaken to meet such objectives.
       (3) Minimum amount.--
       (A) In general.--Each State (other than the District of 
     Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American 
     Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands) 
     shall receive for each fiscal year a base amount of 
     $18,000,000 of the total amount appropriated for each fiscal 
     year for grants made available to States under this section.
       (B) District of columbia and territories.--The District of 
     Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American 
     Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands 
     shall each receive for each fiscal year $3,000,000 of the 
     total amount appropriated for each fiscal year for grants 
     made available to States under this section.
       (4) Administration.--(A) If the State receives and 
     distributes such amounts, it shall be responsible for the 
     administration of funds so distributed. The State shall pay 
     from its own resources all administrative expenses incurred 
     by the State in carrying out its responsibilities under this 
     title, except that from the amounts received for distribution 
     in nonqualifying areas, the State may deduct an amount to 
     cover such expenses and its administrative expenses not to 
     exceed the sum of $150,000 plus 50 percent of any such 
     expenses under this title in excess of $150,000. Amounts 
     deducted in excess of $150,000 shall not exceed 2 percent of 
     the amount so received.
       (B) If the Director distributes such amounts, the 
     distribution shall be made in accordance with determinations 
     of the Director pursuant to statements submitted and the 
     other requirements of section ____05 (other than subsection 
     (c)) and in accordance with regulations and procedures 
     prescribed by the Director.
       (C) Any amounts allocated for use in a State under 
     paragraph (1) that are not received by the State for any 
     fiscal year because of failure to meet the requirements of 
     subsection (a) or (b) of section ____05 shall be added to 
     amounts allocated to all States under paragraph (1) for the 
     succeeding fiscal year.
       (D) Any amounts allocated for use in a State under 
     paragraph (1) that become available as a result of the 
     closeout of a grant made by the Director under this section 
     in nonqualifying areas of the State shall be added to amounts 
     allocated to the State under paragraph (1) for the fiscal 
     year in which the amounts become so available.
       (5) Single unit.--Any combination of units of general local 
     governments may not be required to obtain recognition by the 
     Director pursuant to section ____03(2) to be treated as a 
     single unit of general local government for purposes of this 
     subsection.
       (6) Deduction.--From the amounts received under paragraph 
     (1) for distribution in nonqualifying areas, the State may

     governments.
       (7) Applicability.--Any activities conducted with amounts 
     received by a unit of general local government under this 
     subsection shall be subject to the applicable provisions of 
     this title and other Federal law in the same manner and to 
     the same extent as activities conducted with amounts received 
     by a unit of general local government under subsection (a).
       (e) Qualifications and Determinations.--The Director may 
     fix such qualification or submission dates as he determines 
     are necessary to permit the computations and determinations 
     required by this section to be made in a timely manner, and 
     all such computations and determinations shall be final and 
     conclusive.
       (f) Pro Rata Reduction and Increase.--If the total amount 
     available for distribution in any fiscal year to metropolitan 
     cities and urban counties under this section is insufficient 
     to provide the amounts to which metropolitan cities and urban 
     counties would be entitled under subsection (b), and funds 
     are not otherwise appropriated to meet the deficiency, the 
     Director shall meet the deficiency through a pro rata 
     reduction of all amounts determined under subsection (b). If 
     the total amount available for distribution in any fiscal 
     year to metropolitan cities and urban counties under this 
     section exceeds the amounts to which metropolitan cities and 
     urban counties would be entitled under subsection (b), the 
     Director shall distribute the excess through a pro rata 
     increase of all amounts determined under subsection (b).

     participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected 
     to discrimination under any program or activity funded in 
     whole or in part with funds made available under this title. 
     Any prohibition against discrimination on the basis of age 
     under the Age Discrimination Act of 1975 (42 U.S.C. 6101 et 
     seq.) or with respect to an otherwise qualified handicapped 
     individual as provided in section 504 of the Rehabilitation

       The Congress finds the following:
       (1) Even before the terrorist attacks of September 11, 
     2002, American citizens were a target of choice for terrorist 
     organizations.
       (2) The United States has a strong interest in ensuring 
     that those who commit terrorist acts against Americans and 
     American interests are apprehended and prosecuted to the full 
     extent of the law.
       (3) Under United States law, individuals who commit acts of 
     international terrorism outside of the United States may be 
     prosecuted for such acts in the United States.
       (4) Despite vigorous, sustained diplomatic efforts and 
     financial assistance, little has been done to apprehend, 
     indict, prosecute, and convict individuals who have committed 
     terrorist attacks against nationals of the United States, 
     including in areas such as those controlled by the Palestine 
     Authority.

     SEC. 2. ESTABLISHMENT OF OFFICE IN THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

     have committed acts of international terrorism described in 
     paragraph (1), including the dissemination of information 
     relating to such rewards in appropriate foreign media.
       (4) Negotiate with the foreign governments, government 
     authorities, or entities governing the nation or territory on 
     which the terrorist act described in paragraph (1) occurred 
     to obtain financial compensation for nationals of the United 
     States, or their families, injured or killed by such acts of 
     terrorism.
       (5) In conjunction with other appropriate Federal agencies, 
     seek justice for individuals who commit acts of terrorism 
     described in paragraph (1), whether through indictment, 
     effective prosecution abroad, or extradition to the United 
     States.
       (6) Contact the families of victims of acts of terrorism 
     described in paragraph (1) and provide regular updates on the 
     progress to apprehend, indict, prosecute, and convict the 
     individuals who commit such acts.
       (7) In any country or territory in which a terrorist act 
     against an American occurs, providing training for an 
     appropriate number of United States officials abroad to carry 
     out the effective execution of paragraphs (1) through (6).
       (8) In consultation with the Secretary of State, provide 
     information and a full report on the status of apprehension, 
     indictment, and prosecution of individuals who commit acts of 
     terrorism against Americans abroad as part of the 
     Department's annual ``Patterns of Global Terrorism'' report 
     established in section 2656f(a) of Title 22 of the U.S. Code.
       (b) Definition.--In this section, the term `international 
     terrorism' has the meaning given such term in section 2331(1) 
     of title 18, United States Code.

     SEC. 3. AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS.

     to communications facilities in times of emergency.
       (3) To promote the rapid deployment of low cost multi-
     channel video programming and broadband Internet services to 
     the public, without causing harmful interference to existing 
     telecommunications services.

     high speed data and video services to unserved and 
     underserved populations, including schools, libraries, tribal 
     lands, community centers, senior centers, and low-income 
     housing.
       (6) To ensure that new technologies capable of fulfilling 
     the purposes set forth in paragraphs (1) through (5) are
