28 USC 534 note. SEC. 611. SHORT TITLE.

This section may be cited as the “National Law Enforcement
Cooperation Act of 1990”.
SEC. 612. FINDINGS.
The Congress finds that,

(1) cooperation among Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies is critical to an effective national response to the problems of violent crime and drug trafficking in the United States;

(2) the National Crime Information Center, which links more than 16,000 Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies, is the single most important avenue of cooperation among law enforcement agencies;

(3) major improvements to the National Crime Information Center are needed because the current system is more than twenty years old; carries much greater volumes of enforcement information; and at this time is unable to incorporate technological advances that would significantly improve its performance; and

(4) the Federal Bureau of Investigation, working with State and local law enforcement agencies and private organizations, has developed a promising plan, “NCIC 2000”, to make the necessary upgrades to the National Crime Information Center that should meet the needs of United States law enforcement agencies into the next century.

SEC. 613. AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS.

There are authorized to be appropriated the following sums to implement the "NCIC 2000” project:

(1) $17,000,000 for fiscal year 1991;

(3) $22,000,000 for fiscal year 1993;
(4) $9,000,000 for fiscal year 1994; and

(5) such sums as may be necessary for fiscal year 1995. SEC. 614. REPORT.

By February 1 of each fiscal year for which funds for NCIC 2000 are requested, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation shall submit a report to the Committees on the Judiciary of the Senate and House of Representatives that details the progress that has been made in implementing NCIC 2000 and a complete justification for the funds requested in the following fiscal year for NCIC
