United States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. FINDINGS.
    The Congress finds the following:
        (1) Every day, the United States Capitol Police (``Capitol 
    Police'') protects the U.S. Capitol, Members of Congress, 
    congressional staff and institutional staff, journalists, and the 
    visiting public.
        (2) On January 6, 2021, a mob of insurrectionists forced its 
    way into the U.S. Capitol building and congressional office 
    buildings and engaged in acts of vandalism, looting, and violently 
    attacked Capitol Police officers.
        (3) The sacrifice of heroes including Capitol Police Officers 
    Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood, Metropolitan Police 
    Department Officer Jeffrey Smith, and those who sustained injuries, 
    and the courage of Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman, exemplify 
    the patriotism and the commitment of Capitol Police officers, and 
    those of other law enforcement agencies, to risk their lives in 
    service of our country.
        (4) Up to seven Americans died following this violent attack, 
    and more than 140 law enforcement officers suffered physical 
    injuries, including 15 officers who were hospitalized.
        (5) The desecration of the U.S. Capitol, which is the temple of 
    our American Democracy, and the violence targeting Congress are 
    horrors that will forever stain our Nation's history.
        (6) On April 2, 2021 Officer William ``Billy'' Evans was killed 
    while protecting the North Barricade of the Capitol. Officer Evans 
    was a distinguished member of the First Responders Unit and an 
    eighteen-year veteran of the United States Capitol Police. Also 
    injured in that assault was Officer Kenneth Shaver. Officer Shaver 
    is a fifteen-year veteran of the United States Capitol Police.
