S. 1197 would authorize the appropriation of funds over the 2006-2010 period for various programs in the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that aim to reduce violent crimes against women and assist the victims of such crimes. In addition, the bill would permit DOJ to collect DNA samples from certain individuals who commit federal offenses.
