shall make grants to counseling intermediaries approved by the
Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) (with match to
be determined by the NRC based on affordability and the economic
conditions of an area; a match also may be waived by the NRC
based on the aforementioned conditions) to provide mortgage
foreclosure mitigation assistance primarily to States and areas
with high rates of defaults and foreclosures to help eliminate
the default and foreclosure of mortgages of owner-occupied
single-family homes that are at risk of such foreclosure. Other
than areas with high rates of defaults and foreclosures, grants
may also be provided to approved counseling intermediaries based
on a geographic analysis of the Nation by the NRC which
determines where there is a prevalence of mortgages that are
risky and likely to fail, including any trends for mortgages
that are likely to default and face foreclosure. A State Housing
Finance Agency may also be eligible where the State Housing
Finance Agency meets all the requirements under this paragraph.
A HUD-approved counseling intermediary shall meet certain
mortgage foreclosure mitigation assistance counseling
requirements, as determined by the NRC, and shall be approved by
HUD or the NRC as meeting these requirements.
(2) Mortgage foreclosure mitigation assistance shall only be
made available to homeowners of owner-occupied homes with
mortgages in default or in danger of default. These mortgages
shall likely be subject to a foreclosure action and homeowners
will be provided such assistance that shall consist of
activities that are likely to prevent foreclosures and result in
the long-term affordability of the mortgage retained pursuant to
such activity or another positive outcome for the homeowner. No
funds made available under this paragraph may be provided
directly to lenders or homeowners to discharge outstanding
mortgage balances or for any other direct debt reduction
payments.
(3) The use of Mortgage Foreclosure Mitigation Assistance by
approved counseling intermediaries and State Housing Finance
Agencies shall involve a reasonable analysis of the borrower's
financial situation, an evaluation of the current value of the
property that is subject to the mortgage, counseling regarding
the assumption of the mortgage by another non-Federal party,
counseling regarding the possible purchase of the mortgage by a
non-Federal third party, counseling and

[[Page 3109]]
123 STAT. 3109

advice of all likely restructuring and refinancing strategies or
the approval of a work-out strategy by all interested parties.
(4) NRC may provide up to 15 percent of the total funds
under this paragraph to its own charter members with expertise
in foreclosure prevention counseling, subject to a certification
by the NRC that the procedures for selection do not consist of
any procedures or activities that could be construed as an
unacceptable conflict of interest or have the appearance of
impropriety.
(5) HUD-approved counseling entities and State Housing
Finance Agencies receiving funds under this paragraph shall have
demonstrated experience in successfully working with financial
institutions as well as borrowers facing default, delinquency
and foreclosure as well as documented counseling capacity,
outreach capacity, past successful performance and positive
outcomes with documented counseling plans (including post
mortgage foreclosure mitigation counseling), loan workout
agreements and loan modification agreements. NRC may use other
criteria to demonstrate capacity in underserved areas.
(6) Of the total amount made available under this paragraph,
up to $3,000,000 may be made available to build the mortgage
foreclosure and default mitigation counseling capacity of
counseling intermediaries through NRC training courses with HUD-
approved counseling intermediaries and their partners, except
that private financial institutions that participate in NRC
training shall pay market rates for such training.
(7) Of the total amount made available under this paragraph,
up to 4 percent may be used for associated administrative
expenses for the NRC to carry out activities provided under this
section.
(8) Mortgage foreclosure mitigation assistance grants may
include a budget for outreach and advertising, and training, as
determined by the NRC.
(9) The NRC shall continue to report bi-annually to the
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations as well as the
Senate Banking Committee and House Financial Services Committee
on its efforts to mitigate mortgage default.

(b) The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives shall
include in all such data releases, language similar to the following
that would make clear that trace data cannot be used to draw broad
conclusions about firearms-related crime:
(1) Firearm traces are designed to assist law enforcement
authorities in conducting investigations by tracking the sale
and possession of specific firearms. Law enforcement agencies
may request firearms traces for any reason, and those reasons
are not necessarily reported to the Federal Government. Not

[[Page 3152]]
123 STAT. 3152

all firearms used in crime are traced and not all firearms
traced are used in crime.
(2) Firearms selected for tracing are not chosen for
purposes of determining which types, makes, or models of
firearms are used for illicit purposes. The firearms selected do
not constitute a random sample and should not be considered
representative of the larger universe of all firearms used by
criminals, or any subset of that universe. Firearms are normally
traced to the first retail seller, and sources reported for
firearms traced do not necessarily represent the sources or
methods by which firearms in general are acquired for use in
crime.

Sec. 517. (a) The Inspectors General of the Department of Commerce,
the Department of Justice, the National Aeronautics and Space

subsection (a) by an Inspector General is completed, the Secretary,
Attorney General, Administrator, Director, or President, as appropriate,
shall make the results of the audit available to the public on the
Internet website maintained by the Department, Administration,
Foundation, or Corporation, respectively. The results shall be made
available in redacted form to exclude--
(1) any matter described in section 552(b) of title 5,
United States Code; and
(2) sensitive personal information for any individual, the
public access to which could be used to commit identity theft or
for other inappropriate or unlawful purposes.

(c) A grant or contract funded by amounts appropriated by this Act
may not be used for the purpose of defraying the costs of a banquet or
conference that is not directly and programmatically related to the
purpose for which the grant or contract was awarded, such as a banquet
or conference held in connection with planning, training, assessment,
review, or other routine purposes related to a project funded by the
grant or contract.
(d) Any person awarded a grant or contract funded by amounts
appropriated by this Act shall submit a statement to the Secretary of
Commerce, the Attorney General, the Administrator, Director, or
President, as appropriate, certifying that no funds derived from the
grant or contract will be made available through a subcontract or in any
other manner to another person who has a financial interest in the
person awarded the grant or contract.

(e) The provisions of the preceding subsections of this section
shall take effect 30 days after the date on which the Director of the

and requirements, substantially similar to the requirements in such
subsections, consistently apply under the executive branch ethics
program to all Federal departments, agencies, and entities.

any official or contract employee of the United States Government.

Sec. 520. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law or treaty,
none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available under this
Act or any other Act may be expended or obligated by a department,
agency, or instrumentality of the United States to pay administrative
expenses or to compensate an officer or employee of the United States in
connection with requiring an export license for the export to Canada of
components, parts, accessories or attachments for firearms listed in
Category I, section 121.1 of title 22, Code of Federal Regulations
(International Trafficking in Arms Regulations (ITAR), part 121, as it
existed on April 1, 2005) with a total value not exceeding $500
wholesale in any transaction, provided that the conditions of subsection
(b) of this section are met by the exporting party for such articles.

(b) The foregoing exemption from obtaining an export license--

Export Declaration or notification letter required by law, or
from being otherwise eligible under the laws of the United
States to possess, ship, transport, or export the articles
enumerated in subsection (a); and

temporary import of Canadian-origin items from Canada for end use in the
United States or return to Canada for a Canadian citizen.
(d) The President may require export licenses under this section on
a temporary basis if the President determines, upon publication first in
the Federal Register, that the Government of Canada has implemented or
maintained inadequate import controls for the articles specified in
subsection (a), such that a significant diversion of such articles has
and continues to take place for use in international terrorism or in the
escalation of a conflict in another nation. The President shall
terminate the requirements of a license when reasons for the temporary
requirements have ceased.

Sec. 521.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no
department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States receiving
appropriated funds under this Act or any other Act shall obligate or
expend in any way such funds to pay administrative

[[Page 3154]]
123 STAT. 3154

expenses or the compensation of any officer or employee of the United
States to deny any application submitted pursuant to 22 U.S.C.
2778(b)(1)(B) and qualified pursuant to 27 CFR section 478.112 or .113,

Justice, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or the
National Science Foundation totaling more than $75,000,000 has
reasonable cause to believe that the total program cost has increased by
10 percent, the program manager shall immediately inform the Secretary,
Administrator, or Director. The Secretary, Administrator, or Director
shall notify the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 30
days in writing of such increase, and shall include in such notice: the
date on which such determination was made; a statement of the reasons
for such increases; the action taken and proposed to be taken to control
future cost growth of the project; changes made in the performance or
schedule milestones and the degree to which such changes have
contributed to the increase in total program costs or procurement costs;
new estimates of the total project or procurement costs; and a statement
validating that the project's management structure is adequate to
control total project or procurement costs.

Sec. 525.  Funds appropriated by this Act, or made available by the
transfer of funds in this Act, for intelligence or intelligence related

knowledge and belief, the contractor or grantee has filed all Federal
tax returns required during the three years preceding the certification,
has not been convicted of a criminal offense under the Internal Revenue
Code of 1986, and has not, more than 90 days prior to certification,

(c) Before the end of the 30-day period beginning on the date of the
enactment of this Act, a covered manufacturer shall provide to each
covered dealership related to such covered manufacturer a summary of the
terms and the rights accorded under this section to a covered dealership
and the specific criteria pursuant to which such dealer was terminated,
was not renewed, or was not assumed and assigned to a covered
manufacturer.

(d) A covered dealership may elect to pursue the right to binding
arbitration with the appropriate covered manufacturer. Such election
must occur within 40 days of the date of enactment. The arbitration
process must commence as soon as practicable thereafter with the
selection of the arbitrator and conclude with the case being submitted
to the arbitrator for deliberation within 180 days of the date of
enactment of this Act. The arbitrator may extend the time periods in
this subsection for up to 30 days for good cause. The covered
manufacturer and the covered dealership may present any relevant
information during the arbitration. The arbitrator shall balance the
economic interest of the covered dealership, the economic interest of
the covered manufacturer, and the economic interest of the public at
large and shall decide, based on that balancing, whether or not the
covered dealership should be added to the dealer network of the covered
manufacturer. The factors considered by the arbitrator shall include (1)
the covered dealership's profitability in 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009,
(2) the

[[Page 3221]]
123 STAT. 3221

covered manufacturer's overall business plan, (3) the covered
dealership's current economic viability, (4) the covered dealership's
satisfaction of the performance objectives established pursuant to the
applicable franchise agreement, (5) the demographic and geographic
characteristics of the covered dealership's market territory, (6) the
covered dealership's performance in relation to the criteria used by the
covered manufacturer to terminate, not renew, not assume or not assign
the covered dealership's franchise agreement, and (7) the length of
experience of the covered dealership. The arbitrator shall issue a
written determination no later than 7 business days after the arbitrator
determines that case has been fully submitted. At a minimum, the written
determination shall include (1) a description of the covered dealership,
(2) a clear statement indicating whether the franchise agreement at
issue is to be renewed, continued, assigned or assumed by the covered
manufacturer, (3) the key facts relied upon by the arbitrator in making
the determination, and (4) an explanation of how the balance of economic
interests supports the arbitrator's determination.

(e) The arbitrator shall be selected from the list of qualified
arbitrators maintained by the Regional Office of the American
Arbitration Association (AAA), in the Region where the dealership is
located, by mutual agreement of the covered dealership and covered
manufacturer. If agreement cannot be reached on a suitable arbitrator,
the parties shall request AAA to select the arbitrator. There will be no
depositions in the proceedings, and discovery shall be limited to
requests for documents specific to the covered dealership. The parties
shall be responsible for their own expenses, fees, and costs, and shall
share equally all other costs associated with the arbitration, such as
arbitrator fees, meeting room charges, and administrative costs. The
arbitration shall be conducted in the State where the covered dealership
is located. Parties will have the option of conducting arbitration
electronically and telephonically, by mutual agreement of both parties.
The arbitrator shall not award compensatory, punitive, or exemplary
damages to any party. If the arbitrator finds in favor of a covered
dealership, the covered manufacturer shall as soon as practicable, but
not later than 7 business days after receipt of the arbitrator's
determination, provide the dealer a customary and usual letter of intent
to enter into a sales and service agreement. After executing the sales
and service agreement and successfully completing the operational
prerequisites set forth therein, a covered dealership shall return to
the covered manufacturer any financial compensation provided by the
covered manufacturer in consideration of the covered manufacturer's
initial determination to terminate, not renew, not assign or not assume
the covered dealership's applicable franchise agreement.

(f) Any legally binding agreement resulting from a voluntary
negotiation between a covered manufacturer and covered dealership(s)
shall not be considered inconsistent with this provision and any covered
dealership that is a party to such agreement shall forfeit the right to
arbitration established by this provision.
(g) Notwithstanding the requirements of this provision, nothing
herein shall prevent a covered manufacturer from lawfully terminating a
covered dealership in accordance with applicable State law.
