    SEC. 635. (a) This section may be cited as ‘Amy Boyer’s Law’.

    (b) Congress makes the following findings:

      (1) The inappropriate display, sale, or use of social security numbers is a significant factor in a growing range of illegal activities, including fraud, identity theft, and, in some cases, stalking and other violent crimes.

      (2) Because social security numbers are used to track financial, health care, and other sensitive information about individuals, the inappropriate sale or display of those numbers to the general public can result in serious invasions of individual privacy and facilitate the commission of criminal activity.

      (3) The Federal Government requires virtually every individual in the United States to obtain and maintain a social security number in order to pay taxes, to qualify for social security benefits, or to seek employment. An unintended consequence of these requirements is that social security numbers have become tools that can be used to facilitate crime, fraud, and invasions of the privacy of the individuals to whom the numbers are assigned. Because the Federal Government created and maintains the social security number system, and because the Federal Government does not permit persons to exempt themselves from the requirements of that system, it is appropriate for the Federal Government to take steps to stem abuse of the system.

      (4) A social security number is simply a sequence of numbers. In no meaningful sense can the number itself impart knowledge or ideas. Persons do not sell or transfer such numbers in order to convey any particularized message, nor to express to the purchaser any ideas, knowledge, or thoughts.

      (5) No one should seek to profit from the display or sale to the general public of social security numbers in circumstances that create a substantial risk of physical, emotional, or financial harm to the individuals to whom those numbers are assigned.

      (6) Various entities may display, sell, or use social security numbers, including the private sector, the Federal Government and State governments, and Federal and State courts. Whatever the source, the inappropriate display or sale to the general public of social security numbers should be prevented.

      (7) Congress should enact legislation that will offer an individual assigned a social security number necessary protection from the display, sale, or purchase of the number in circumstances that might facilitate unlawful conduct or that might otherwise likely result in unfair and deceptive practices.

    (c)(1) Part A of title XI of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1301 et seq.) is amended by adding at the end the following new section:

      ‘(3) for purposes of law enforcement, including investigation of fraud or as required under subchapter II of chapter 53 of title 31, United States Code, and chapter 2 of title I of Public Law 91-508 (12 U.S.C. 1951-1959); or

    ‘(2) In the case of a civil action brought under paragraph (1)(B)(iii) in which the aggrieved individual has substantially prevailed, the court may assess against the respondent a reasonable attorney’s fee and other litigation costs and expenses (including expert fees) reasonably incurred.

    ‘(3) No action may be commenced under this subsection more than 3 years after the date on which the violation was or should reasonably have been discovered by the aggrieved individual.

    ‘(4) The remedy provided under this subsection shall be in addition to any other lawful remedy available to the individual.

    ‘(f)(1) Any person who the Commissioner of Social Security determines has violated this section shall be subject, in addition to any other penalties that may be prescribed by law, to--

      ‘(A) a civil money penalty of not more than $5,000 for each such violation; and

      ‘(B) a civil money penalty of not more than $50,000, if violations have occurred with such frequency as to constitute a general business practice.

    (e) CONSIDERATIONS-

      (1) TYPE OF MARKET-

        (A) PRIORITY CONSIDERATIONS- To the maximum extent practicable, the Board shall give priority in the approval of loan guarantees under this Act in the following order:

          (i) First, to projects that will serve households in nonserved areas. In considering such projects, the Board shall balance projects that will serve the largest number of households with projects that will serve remote, isolated communities (including noncontiguous States) in areas that are unlikely to be served through market mechanisms.

          (ii) Second, to projects that will serve households in underserved areas. In considering such projects, the Board shall balance projects that will serve the largest number of households with projects that will serve remote, isolated communities (including noncontiguous States) in areas that are unlikely to be served through market mechanisms.

        Within each category, the Board shall consider the project’s estimated cost per household and shall give priority to those projects that provide the highest quality service at the lowest cost per household.

        (B) ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATION- The Board should give additional consideration to projects that also provide high-speed Internet service.

        (C) PROHIBITIONS- The Board may not approve a loan guarantee under this Act for a project that--

          (i) is designed primarily to serve 1 or more of the top 40 designated market areas (as that term is defined in section 122(j) of title 17, United States Code); or

          (ii) would alter or remove National Weather Service warnings from local broadcast signals.

      (2) OTHER CONSIDERATIONS- The Board shall consider other factors, which shall include projects that would--

        (A) offer a separate tier of local broadcast signals, but for applicable Federal, State, or local laws or regulations;

        (B) provide lower projected costs to consumers of such separate tier; and

        (C) enable the delivery of local broadcast signals consistent with the purpose of this Act by a means reasonably compatible with existing systems or devices predominantly in use.

      (3) FURTHER CONSIDERATION- In implementing this Act, the Board shall support the use of loan guarantees for projects that would serve households not likely to be served in the absence of loan guarantees under this Act.

    (f) GUARANTEE LIMITS-

      (1) LIMITATION ON AGGREGATE VALUE OF LOANS- The aggregate value of all loans for which loan guarantees are issued under this Act (including the unguaranteed portion of such loans) may not exceed $1,250,000,000.

      (2) GUARANTEE LEVEL- A loan guarantee issued under this Act may not exceed an amount equal to 80 percent of a loan meeting in its entirety the requirements of subsection (d)(2)(A). If only a portion of a loan meets the requirements of that subsection, the Board shall determine that percentage of the loan meeting such requirements (the ‘applicable portion’) and may issue a loan guarantee in an amount not exceeding 80 percent of the applicable portion.

    (g) UNDERWRITING CRITERIA- Within the period provided for under subsection (b)(1), the Board shall, in consultation with the Director of the Office of Management and Budget and an independent public accounting firm, develop underwriting criteria relating to the guarantee of loans that are consistent with the purpose of this Act, including appropriate collateral and cash flow levels for loans guaranteed under this Act, and such other matters as the Board considers appropriate.

        (B) AUTHORITY LIMITED BY APPROPRIATIONS ACTS- Credit risk premiums under this subsection shall be imposed only to the extent provided for in advance in appropriations Acts. To the extent that appropriations of budget authority are insufficient to cover the cost, as so defined, of a loan guarantee under this Act, credit risk premiums shall be accepted from a non-Federal source under this subsection on behalf of the applicant for the loan guarantee.

      (2) CREDIT RISK PREMIUM AMOUNT-

        (A) IN GENERAL- The Board shall determine the amount of any credit risk premium to be accepted with respect to a loan guarantee under this Act on the basis of--

          (i) the financial and economic circumstances of the applicant for the loan guarantee, including the amount of collateral offered;

          (ii) the proposed schedule of loan disbursements;

          (iii) the business plans of the applicant for providing service;

          (iv) any financial commitment from a broadcast signal provider; and

          (v) the concurrence of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget as to the amount of the credit risk premium.

        (B) PROPORTIONALITY- To the extent that appropriations of budget authority are sufficient to cover the cost, as determined under section 502(5) of the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990, of loan guarantees under this Act, the credit risk premium with respect to each loan guarantee shall be reduced proportionately.

        (C) PAYMENT OF PREMIUMS- Credit risk premiums under this subsection shall be paid to an account (the ‘Escrow Account’) established in the Treasury which shall accrue interest and such interest shall be retained by the account, subject to subparagraph (D).

        (D) DEDUCTIONS FROM ESCROW ACCOUNT- If a default occurs with respect to any loan guaranteed under this Act and the default is not cured in accordance with the terms of the underlying loan or loan guarantee agreement, the Administrator, in accordance with subsections (i) and (j) of section 5, shall liquidate, or shall cause to be liquidated, all assets collateralizing such loan as to which it has a lien or security interest. Any shortfall between the proceeds of the liquidation net of costs and expenses relating to the liquidation, and the guarantee amount paid pursuant to this Act shall be deducted from funds in the Escrow Account and credited to the Administrator for payment of such shortfall. At such time as determined under subsection (d)(2)(E) of this section when all loans guaranteed under this Act have been repaid or otherwise satisfied in accordance with this Act and the regulations promulgated hereunder, remaining funds in the Escrow Account, if any, shall be refunded, on a pro rata basis, to applicants whose loans guaranteed under this Act were not in default, or where any default was cured in accordance with the terms of the underlying loan or loan guarantee agreement.

    (i) LIMITATIONS ON GUARANTEES FOR CERTAIN CABLE OPERATORS- Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, no loan guarantee under this Act may be granted or used to provide funds for a project that upgrades or enhances the services provided over any cable system, nor for a project that extends the services provided by a cable operator, or its successor or assignee, over any cable system to an area that, as of the date of enactment of this Act, is covered by a cable franchise agreement that obligates a cable system operator to serve such area.

    (j) JUDICIAL REVIEW- The decision of the Board to approve or disapprove the making of a loan guarantee under this Act shall not be subject to judicial review.

    (k) APPLICABILITY OF APA- Except as otherwise provided in subsection (j), the provisions of subchapter II of chapter 5 and chapter 7 of title 5, United States Code (commonly referred to as the Administrative Procedure Act), shall apply to actions taken under this Act.
