From the Purpose and Summary: "H.R. 1313, the Transit Security Grant Program Flexibility Act, amends the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (Implementing 9/11 Recommendations Act) to extend the period of time that public transportation security assistance grant awards are available to grant recipients. Specifically, this Act allows these grants to remain available up to 36 months and grants for construction of security improvements to public transportation systems or improvements to public transportation infrastructure to remain available for up to 48 months. It also allows grant funds to be used to backfill for staff during security trainings. Finally, the Act requires the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to complete an assessment of the types of projects funded by public transportation security assistance grants, how these projects address security threats, the impact of this Act on these projects, the management and administration of the grants, as well as provide recommendations to improve how these grants address public transportation vulnerabilities and recommendations on ways to improve management of these grants."
