H.R. 4323 (113th): Debbie Smith Reauthorization Act of 2014

To reauthorize programs authorized under the Debbie Smith Act of 2004, and for other purposes.

The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations, which set overall spending limits by agency or program, and authorizations, which direct how federal funds should (or should not) be used. Appropriation and authorization provisions are typically made for single fiscal years. A reauthorization bill like this one renews the authorizations of an expiring law.
