SEC. 2. CONSIDERATION IN AWARDING GRANTS TO SUPPORT STATE PDMPS.

    In determining whether to award a grant to a State in support of a

Human Services shall consider whether each agency of the State that 
administers the prescription drug monitoring program proactively 
analyzes data available through the State's prescription drug 
monitoring program and provides reports to law enforcement agencies, 
prescriber licensing boards, and other agencies describing any 
prescribers that repeatedly fall outside of expected norms or standard 
practices for the prescriber's field.
