To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to reauthorize and rename the Interagency Threat Assessment and Coordination Group as the Joint Counterterrorism Assessment Team.

The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations and authorizations. This is an authorization bill, which directs how federal funds should or should not be used. (It does not set overall spending limits, however, which are the subject of appropriations bills.) Authorizations are typically made for single fiscal years (October 1 through September 30 of the next year) but are often renewed in subsequent law.
