Rescinds the hiring authority of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).

Transfers: (1) the contracts, liabilities, records, property, and other assets and interests associated with such transferred functions to the Attorney General for appropriate allocation; and (2) personnel employed in connection with the transferred functions to the Attorney General.
