    Sec. 170. (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
        (1) The District of Columbia has recently witnessed a spate of 
    senseless killings of innocent citizens caught in the crossfire of 
    shootings. A Justice Department crime victimization survey found 
    that while the city saw a decline in the homicide rate between 1996 
    and 1997, the rate was the highest among a dozen cities and more 
    than double the second highest city.
        (2) The District of Columbia has not made adequate funding 
    available to fight drug abuse in recent years, and the city has not 
    deployed its resources as effectively as possible. In fiscal year 
    1998, $20,900,000 was spent on publicly funded drug treatment in 
    the District compared to $29,000,000 in fiscal year 1993. The 
    District's Addiction and Prevention and Recovery Agency currently 
    has only 2,200 treatment slots, a 50 percent drop from 1994, with 
    more than 1,100 people on waiting lists.
        (3) The District of Columbia has seen a rash of inmate escapes 
    from halfway houses. According to Department of Corrections 
    records, between October 21, 1998 and January 19, 1999, 376 of the 
    1,125 inmates assigned to halfway houses walked away. Nearly 280 of 
    the 376 escapees were awaiting trial including two charged with 
    murder.
        (4) The District of Columbia public schools system faces 
    serious challenges in correcting chronic problems, particularly 
    long-standing deficiencies in providing special education services 
    to the 1 in 10 District students needing program benefits, 
    including backlogged assessments, and repeated failure to meet a 
    compliance agreement on special education reached with the 
    Department of Education.
        (5) Deficiencies in the delivery of basic public services from 
    cleaning streets to waiting time at Department of Motor Vehicles to 
    a rat population estimated earlier this year to exceed the human 
    population have generated considerable public frustration.
        (6) Last year, the District of Columbia forfeited millions of 
    dollars in Federal grants after Federal auditors determined that 
    several agencies exceeded grant restrictions and in other 
    instances, failed to spend funds before the grants expired.
        (7) Findings of a 1999 report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation 
    that measured the well-being of children reflected that, with one 
    exception, the District ranked worst in the United States in every 
    category from infant mortality to the rate of teenage births to 
    statistics chronicling child poverty.
    (b) Sense of the Congress.--It is the sense of the Congress that in 
considering the District of Columbia's fiscal year 2001 budget, the 
Congress will take into consideration progress or lack of progress in 
addressing the following issues:
        (1) Crime, including the homicide rate, implementation of 
    community policing, the number of police officers on local beats, 
    and the closing down of open-air drug markets.
        (2) Access to drug abuse treatment, including the number of 
    treatment slots, the number of people served, the number of people 
    on waiting lists, and the effectiveness of treatment programs.
        (3) Management of parolees and pretrial violent offenders, 
    including the number of halfway house escapes and steps taken to 
    improve monitoring and supervision of halfway house residents to 
    reduce the number of escapes.
        (4) Education, including access to special education services 
    and student achievement.
        (5) Improvement in basic city services, including rat control 
    and abatement.
        (6) Application for and management of Federal grants.
        (7) Indicators of child well-being.
    Sec. 171. The Mayor, prior to using Federal Medicaid payments to 
Disproportionate Share Hospitals to serve a small number of childless 
adults, should consider the recommendations of the Health Care 
Development Commission that has been appointed by the Council of the 
District of Columbia to review this program, and consult and report to 
Congress on the use of these funds.
    Sec. 172. GAO Study of District of Columbia Criminal Justice 
System.--Not later than 1 year after the date of the enactment of this 
Act, the Comptroller General of the United States shall--
        (1) conduct a study of the law enforcement, court, prison, 
    probation, parole, and other components of the criminal justice 
    system of the District of Columbia, in order to identify the 
    components most in need of additional resources, including 
    financial, personnel, and management resources; and
        (2) submit to Congress a report on the results of the study 
    under paragraph (1).
    This title may be cited as the ``District of Columbia 
Appropriations Act, 2000''.

SEC. 201. COMMENDING REDUCTION OF TAXES BY DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

    Congress commends the District of Columbia for its action to reduce
