Provisions of the billEdit

This summary is based largely on the summary provided by the United States House Committee on Education and the Workforce, a public domain source.[2]

As passed by the House, the E. Clay Shaw Jr. Missing Children's Assistance Reauthorization Act would:

  • Support the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s current activities around providing technical assistance to law enforcement in coordinating with states and school districts to find and recover missing children; coordinate with state welfare agencies to find children missing from foster care; and identify and recover victims of (or those at risk for) child sex trafficking.[2]
  • Include educational stakeholders and homeless service providers in the list of recipients of the Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) education and prevention activities.[2]
  • Require the national incidence studies on missing and exploited children be provided every three years (rather than periodically, as is currently written).[2]
  • Strengthen OJJDP's oversight and accountability and codify current practice by limiting the use of federal funds for employee compensation.[2]
  • Authorize funding for the Act at $40 million for each of the five fiscal years (FY 2014-FY2018), with up to $32 million of funds being used to carry out the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s responsibilities.[2]
