From the Purpose and Summary: "The purpose of S. 731, the Anti-Border Corruption Improvement Act, is to ensure the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is able to exercise limited flexibilities in its hiring process to offset staff shortages amongst its cadre of law enforcement officer positions. S. 731 expands the CBP Commissioner's authority to waive the polygraph examination requirements for three categories of individuals seeking to hold law enforcement positions with CBP. Specifically, this bill allows CBP to waive the polygraph examination requirement for current law enforcement officers, who meet certain requirements and are employed full-time by Federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, and active members or veterans of the Armed Forces. The CBP Commissioner may use the polygraph examination to resolve any questions or concerns that arise as part of the background investigation for an applicant eligible for or current employee receiving a waiver to determine whether the individual meets the suitably requirements for employment with CBP. CBP is required to provide a report to Congress on the use of this polygraph waiver within one year after the bill's enactment. The authorities provided in this bill will sunset five years after enactment."
