Title: National Security Amendment

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to waive the Budget Act in order to adopt an amendment that supplies definitions, establishes both time and fiscal limits for the implementation of programs, standards for reporting, compliance, and oversight to the recommendations of the 911-Commission Report.

Highlights:
  • Establishes national standards and parameters for first responder equipment and training (Sec. 1807 and Sec. 1113).
  • Sets privacy guidelines for government sharing of personal information (Sec. 1213).
  • Creates security clearance standards (Sec. 1241).
  • Calls for an increase of hiring and training of border security personnel (Sec. 2313).
  • Places a prohibition on war profiteering (Sec. 2402).
Note:

NOTE: A MOTION TO WAIVE THE BUDGET ACT, IF ADOPTED, TEMPORARILY SETS ASIDE A SPECIFIC PROVISION OF THE BUDGET ACT OF 1974 SO THAT AN AMENDMENT THAT VIOLATES THE ACT MAY BE CONSIDERED. A 3/5 MAJORITY IS REQUIRED FOR ADOPTION.
