Floor Schedule and Procedure:

 

H.R. 8542 – Mental Health Justice Act of 2022 (Rep. Porter – Energy and Commerce)

 

The bill creates an HHS grant program for states, Tribes, and local governments to hire, train, and dispatch mental health professionals when responding to 911 calls due to a mental health crisis and support connecting these people into appropriate care rather than incarceration. 

 

Link to fact sheet.

The Rule will provide for 30 minutes of debate equally divided and controlled by the Chair and Ranking Member of the Committee on Energy and Commerce.

H.R. 6448 – Invest and Protect Act of 2022 (Rep. Gottheimer – Judiciary)

 

The bill will help ensure that police departments in small towns and communities with fewer than 125 officers have the resources and training they need by creating a grant program to provide resources to these small law enforcement agencies for training, recruiting, and retaining officers and providing mental health resources to their officers.

 

Additionally, the bill includes critical accountability provisions, allowing DOJ to preference applicants who specify in their applications that grant amounts will be used for certain eligible activities, including de-escalation training, data collection, and evidence-based best practices and training on the use of lethal and nonlethal force. To ensure the efficacy of the training, the bill requires the Attorney General to, on an annual basis, evaluate the success of the training programs in reducing the incidence of use of force by each law enforcement agency.

The Rule will provide for 30 minutes of debate equally divided and controlled by the Chair and Ranking Member of the Committee on Judiciary.

H.R. 4118 – Break the Cycle of Violence Act (Rep. Horsford – Judiciary)

 

The bill would authorize federal grants to communities for evidence-based community violence intervention and prevention programs designed to interrupt cycles of violence. It would create an Office of Community Violence Intervention at the Department of HHS to implement these programs and create a grant program at the Department of Labor to provide job training and work opportunities for youth in communities impacted by violence.

The Rule will provide for 30 minutes of debate equally divided and controlled by the Chair and Ranking Member of the Committee on Judiciary.

H.R. 5768 – VICTIM Act of 2022 (Rep. Demings – Judiciary)

 

The bill would establish a grant program at the Department of Justice (DOJ) to help State, Tribal, and local law enforcement agencies improve their clearance rates for homicides and non-fatal shootings.  The resources could also be used to help police address the needs of victims and their family members.  This bill responds to the declining percentage of murder cases being solved by law enforcement agencies across the country by giving additional tools to help law enforcement agencies solve crimes.
