(3) in subsection (d)(2)(A)(ii), by striking `all charges for' and all that follows, and inserting the following: `the responsible agency or official of that State receives, for each charge against the person on the basis of which the analysis was or could have been included in the index, a certified copy of a final court order establishing that such charge has been dismissed or has resulted in an acquittal or that no charge was filed within the applicable time period
.'; and

(4) by striking subsection (e).

SEC. 1003. EXPANDED USE OF CODIS GRANTS.

I can guarantee you that probably not one out of ten politician's that signed off on the bill knew that was there - or that if they did, they didn't have the guts to fight it because their constituents didn't contact them and let them know that they wanted them to fight it and that they'd back them if they did.

Having a voice and a vote don't matter if you use neither. Pete
