IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
September 15 (legislative day, SEPTEMBER 6), 1989
Mr. ROTH introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred
to the Committee on Governmental Affairs
A BILL
To establish a Federal Strategic Drug Intelligence Center.
  Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
  States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
  This Act may be cited as the `Strategic Drug Intelligence Act of 1989'.
SEC. 2. FINDINGS.
  The Congress finds that--
  (1) much of the relevant information the Federal Government possesses related
  to foreign and domestic drug trafficking organizations is in manual files
  which cannot be used easily, quickly, or completely;
  (2) each Federal agency maintains its own files which, by their nature,
  are difficult to share with other agencies;
  (3) no Federal agency has ready access to all the data needed to produce a
  comprehensive understanding of the international and domestic trafficking
  organizations; and
  (4) there is no centralized data base of information which can be fully
  utilized by responsible Federal agencies.
SEC. 3. ESTABLISHMENT AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF CENTER.
  (a) ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CENTER- There is established an executive agency
  to be known as the `Strategic Drug Intelligence Center' (referred to as the
  `Center').
  (b) RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE CENTER- The Center shall--
  (1) assimilate the collective information, data, intelligence, and analytical
  capabilities of National Drug Control Program agencies;
  (2) produce the most comprehensive possible analysis of the foreign and
  domestic drug trafficking organizations and their operations;
  (3) create and maintain a state-of-the-art computer data base for
  drug-related strategic intelligence; and
  (4) disseminate comprehensive intelligence on drug organizations to
  appropriate intelligence and enforcement agencies.
  (c) DATE OF OPERATION- The Center shall begin operations not later than
  90 days after the Director of the Office of Drug Center Policy submits
  the plan referred to in section 5.
SEC. 4. MANAGEMENT OF CENTER.
  (a) ESTABLISHMENT OF BOARD- There shall be at the head of the Center a
  board known as the `Strategic Drug Intelligence Board' (referred to as the
  `Board') which shall be responsible for the management of the Center. The
  Director of the Office of Drug Control Policy shall be the chairman of
  the Board. The heads of the other Federal agencies participating in the
  Center shall be members of the Board.
  (b) RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE BOARD- The Board shall--
  (1) allocate the Center's funding;
  (2) determine the Center's priorities;
  (3) select an executive agent for the Center from among the Board members who
  shall designate senior managers for the Center, subject to Board approval;
  (4) design a format for information to be collected giving due regard to
  the sensitivity of certain information; and
  (5) adopt procedures governing access to information contained in the
  data bases.
SEC. 5. PLAN FOR CENTER.
  Not later than 90 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Director
  of National Drug Control Policy shall develop and submit to Congress a
  plan for the management of the Center which shall include a design and
  format for each of the data bases to be established by the Center. The
  plan shall utilize existing intelligence resources and shall not duplicate
  current information systems.
SEC. 6. PARTICIPATING AGENCIES.
  The following agencies shall participate in the establishment of the
  strategic drug intelligence data bases and shall contribute data as required
  by the Board:

SEC. 7. AVAILABILITY OF INFORMATION.
  The information in each data base established by the Center shall be
  available to appropriate representatives from participating agencies
  pursuant to the procedures adopted by the Board.
SEC. 8. SECURITY OF CENTER.
  The Congress finds that given the nature of the Center's mission,
  the threat to the Center's facilities and its personnel is of special
  concern. In order to protect the Center's facilities and personnel, the
  Board shall take reasonable, necessary actions to provide the appropriate
  and necessary degree of physical and personnel security.
SEC. 9. REPORTS AND EVALUATION.
  Not later than 1 year after the date of enactment of this Act and not
  later than March 1 of each year thereafter, the Director of National Drug
  Control Policy shall prepare and submit to Congress a report evaluating the
  performance of the Center and the participation of each of the contributors
  to the data bases of the Center.
SEC. 10. AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS.
  For purposes of carrying out this Act, there are authorized to be

  remain available until expended.
