S. 782: Providing Resources, Officers, and Technology To Eradicate Cyber Threats to Our Children Act of 2017

This was a vote to pass S. 782 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

S. 782 amends the PROTECT Our Children Act of 2008 to reauthorize through Fiscal Year 2022 the National Internet Crimes Against Children Data System and the National Strategy for Child Exploitation Prevention and Interdiction. The current authorization level is $250 million.

In 2008, Congress passed the Providing Resources, Officers, and Technology to Eradicate Cyber Threats to Our Children Act. The legislation mandated the Department of Justice to work with the National Drug Intelligence Center on a threat assessment of the magnitude of child exploitation. In 2016, the Department issued the second National Strategy for Child Exploitation Prevention and Interdiction to Congress. The Strategy describes in detail current efforts to find, prosecute, and punish those involved in preying on children and reaffirms an unwavering commitment to ensuring that all children are protected from violence and abuse. The legislation also established a National Internet Crimes Against Children task force program to increase the investigative capabilities of State and local law enforcement officers in the detection, investigation, and apprehension of Internet crimes against children. The legislation provided for at least one task force in each state in order to developing effective responses to online enticement of children by sexual predators, child exploitation, and child obscenity and pornography cases.
