United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Bulletproof Vest Partnership Grant 
Act of 2000''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds that--
        (1) the number of law enforcement officers who are killed in 
    the line of duty would significantly decrease if every law 
    enforcement officer in the United States had the protection of an 
    armor vest;
        (2) according to studies, between 1985 and 1994, 709 law 
    enforcement officers in the United States were killed in the line 
    of duty;
        (3) the Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates that the risk 
    of fatality to law enforcement officers while not wearing an armor 
    vest is 14 times higher than for officers wearing an armor vest;
        (4) according to studies, between 1985 and 1994, bullet-
    resistant materials helped save the lives of more than 2,000 law 
    enforcement officers in the United States; and
        (5) the Executive Committee for Indian Country Law Enforcement 
    Improvements reports that violent crime in Indian country has risen 
    sharply, despite a decrease in the national crime rate, and has 
    concluded that there is a ``public safety crisis in Indian 
    country''.

    (a) Matching Funds.--Section 2501(f) of part Y of title I of the

            fewer than 100,000 residents;
                ``(ii) the Director of the Bureau of Justice Assistance 
            determines that the quantity of vests to be purchased with 
            such grant is reasonable; and

        ``(1) receives clear and conspicuous notice that receipt of the 
    grant amounts requested in the application is uncertain; and

    transaction, regardless of whether such amounts are received.''.

on which a final NIJ Standard 0115.00 is first fully approved and 
implemented, also include body armor which has been found to meet or 
exceed the requirements for protection against stabbing established by 
the State in which the grantee is located.
    (f) Authorization of Appropriations.--Section 1001(a)(23) of title
