GSA 1122 Program: Counter-Drug Activities
Section 1122 of the fiscal year 1994 National Defense Authorization Act established the authority for states and local governments to purchase law enforcement equipment through federal procurement channels, provided that the equipment is used in the performance of counter-drug activities.
