[[Page 597]]
123 STAT. 597

(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 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.

Corporation, respectively. The results shall be made available in
redacted form to exclude--

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

and entities.

or otherwise made available under this Act may be used to issue patents
on claims directed to or encompassing a human organism.

this Act shall be used in any way whatsoever to support or justify the
use of torture by 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--

complete breech mechanisms for any firearm listed in
Category I, other than for end use by the Federal

without a license of any unclassified articles specified in subsection
(a) to Canada for end use in Canada or return to the United States, or
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

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

a project within the jurisdiction of the Departments of Commerce or
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

Sec. 525. Funds appropriated by this Act, or made available by the

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, been notified of any unpaid Federal tax
