Annotation: This is the Report of the U.S. House Committee on Education and Labor regarding its action on bill H.R. 5194, which amends the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974 to authorize appropriations for fiscal years 1993, 1994, 1995, and 1996, and for other purposes.
Abstract: After a review of the Committee's hearing schedule and a listing of the witnesses who testified at each hearing, the background and need for the amendment is explained. The amendment strikes every provision after the enacting clause and inserts a new text. H.R. 5194 amends the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974 by adding, as matters of congressional policy, encouragement of parental involvement in treatment and alternative disposition programs and coordination of services between State, local, and community-based agencies. The bill establishes a direct reporting relationship between the Administrator of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention and the Attorney General, and it requires the Administrator to develop a long-term plan for the administration of the Office, which must be reviewed annually. H.R. 5194 requires States to provide one full-time staff person to implement the State plan and requires the inclusion in State plans of educational, home-based, and family-involved alternative services; methods to reduce language barriers; programs to prevent and reduce hate crimes by juveniles; a prohibition on the use of common staff for juvenile and adult facilities; and an analysis of gender-specific services, rural services, and mental health services. State plans must also include an assurance that additional funds above 105 percent of the amount received in fiscal year 1992 be expended on comprehensive and coordinated community systems of services. Other provisions of the amendment pertain to the information function; research, demonstration, and evaluation functions; technical assistance and training functions; the establishment of a training program; and the curriculum for a training program. Amendments are presented and explained for Title II Amendments to the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act; Title II Amendment to the Missing Children's Assistance Act; Title IV Amendment to the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act; and Title V General Provisions.
