Last year the Silver Alert Act, including Kristen's Act Reauthorization passed the in the House of Representatives by unanimous voice vote. Unfortunately, the bill stalled in the US Senate and died there at the end of the year. Senator Kohl has promised to reintroduce the bill in the US Senate this year and Representative Doggett has promised to reintroduce the bill in the House of Representatives.
This bill establishes a nationwide silver alert network for endangered missing adults and reauthorizes Kristen's Act which authorizes funding in the amount of four million dollars per year for a national missing adults program. Kristen's Act has historically been the primary funding source for Let's Bring Them Home's missing adults program - formerly known as The National Center for Missing Adults.
