12/5/2012--Passed House without amendment.
Amends the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 to repeal a reporting requirement under the DNA identification grant program that requires each state or local government that receives a grant to submit to the Attorney General, for each year in which funds are expended, a report on the activities carried out and an assessment of whether such activities are meeting the needs identified in the grant application.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.


No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
