SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds the following:
            (1) The Government of North Korea has repeatedly violated
        its commitments to the complete, verifiable, irreversible
        dismantlement of its nuclear weapons programs, and has
        willfully violated multiple United Nations Security Council
        resolutions calling for it to cease its development, testing,
        and production of weapons of mass destruction.
            (2) North Korea poses a grave risk for the proliferation of
        nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction.
            (3) The Government of North Korea has been implicated
        repeatedly in money laundering and illicit activities,
        including prohibited arms sales, narcotics trafficking, the
        counterfeiting of United States currency, and the
        counterfeiting of intellectual property of United States
        persons.
            (4) The Government of North Korea has recently and
        repeatedly sponsored acts of international terrorism, including
        attempts to assassinate defectors and human rights activists;
        repeated threats of violence against foreign persons, leaders,
        newspapers, and cities; and the shipment of weapons to
        Hezbollah and Hamas via Iran.
            (5) North Korea has unilaterally withdrawn from the 1953
        Armistice Agreement that ended the Korean War, and committed
        unprovoked acts of war against South Korea in 2010 by sinking
        the warship Cheonan and killing 46 of her crew, and by shelling
        Yeonpyeong Island, killing four civilians.
            (6) North Korea maintains a system of brutal political
        prison camps that contain as many as 200,000 men, women, and
        children, who live in atrocious living conditions with
        insufficient food, clothing, and medical care, and under
        constant fear of torture or arbitrary execution.
            (7) The Congress reaffirms the purposes established in the
        North Korean Human Rights Act of 2004 (22 U.S.C. 7802).
            (8) North Korea has prioritized weapons programs and the
        procurement of luxury goods, in defiance of United Nations
        Security Council resolutions, and in gross disregard of the
        needs of its people.
            (9) Persons, including financial institutions, who engage
        in transactions with, or provide financial services to, the
        Government of North Korea and its financial institutions
        without establishing sufficient financial safeguards against
        North Korea's use of these transactions to promote
        proliferation, weapons trafficking, human rights violations,
        illicit activity, and the purchase of luxury goods, aid and
        abet North Korea's misuse of the international financial
        system, and also violate the intent of relevant United Nations
        Security Council resolutions.
            (10) The Government of North Korea's conduct poses an
        imminent threat to the security of the United States and its
        allies, to the global economy, to the safety of members of the
        United States armed forces, to the integrity of the global
        financial system, to the integrity of global nonproliferation
        programs, and to the people of North Korea.
            (11) The Congress seeks, through this legislation, to use
        nonmilitary means to address this emergency, to provide
        diplomatic leverage to negotiate necessary changes in North
        Korea's conduct, and to ease the suffering of the people of
        North Korea.

        Government of North Korea; and
            (4) to deny the Government of North Korea access to the

        written determination that the waiver meets the following
        requirements:
                    (A) The waiver is vital to the economic or national
                security interests of the United States.
                    (B) The waiver will advance the purposes set forth
                in section 4 of the North Korea Human Rights Act of
                2004 (22 U.S.C. 7801 et seq.).
                    (C) The waiver is for the benefit of a financial
                institution that--
                            (i) has blocked all North Korean property
                        deposited in such financial institution,
                        pending an audit of the origin of such property
                        and the implementation of safeguards to ensure
                        that the property is not used to facilitate any
                        of the activities described in section 104(a);
                        and
                            (ii) is providing good-faith cooperation
                        with the investigation of any of the activities
                        described in section 104(a) or the enforcement
                        of the provisions of this Act.
                    (D) The waiver is for the benefit of a person,
                foreign government, or financial institution that is
                providing good-faith cooperation with the investigation
                of any of the activities described in section 104(a)
                and the enforcement of this Act.
                    (E) The waiver is for the benefit of a person,
                foreign government, or financial institution that
                provides underwriting, financial, insurance,
                reinsurance, reflagging, transportation, or financial
                messaging services, and who has exercised due diligence
                in establishing and enforcing official policies,
                procedures, and controls to ensure that the person,
                foreign government, or financial institution (as the
                case may be) does not facilitate any of the activities
                described in section 104(a).
                    (F) In the absence of the waiver, the imposition of
                the sanction or sanctions would have a severe and
                adverse humanitarian impact on the people of North
                Korea and such impact substantially outweighs the
                interest of the United States in enforcing the
                provisions of this Act.
            (2) Government of north korea.--The President may waive, on
        a case-by-case basis, and for a period not to exceed one year,
        the requirement under section 104(c) to designate the
        Government of North Korea, or to impose a sanction or sanctions
        on the Government of North Korea, if the President submits to
        the appropriate congressional committees a written
        determination that the waiver meets the requirements described
        in paragraph (1)(F).
    (c) Removal of Sanctions.--The President may prescribe rules and
regulations for the removal of sanctions on a person, foreign
government, or financial institution that is designated under
subsection (a), (b), or (d) of section 104 and the removal of
designations of a person, foreign government, or financial institution
with respect to such sanctions if the President determines that the
designated person has verifiably ceased its participation in any of the
activities described in section 104(a) and is cooperating with the
investigation of such activities and carrying out this Act.
    (d) Financial Services for Humanitarian and Consular Activities.--
The President may promulgate regulations, rules, and polices as may be
necessary to facilitate the provision of financial services by a
foreign financial institution that is not controlled by the Government
of North Korea in support of the activities subject to exclusion under
this section.

SEC. 303. AUTHORITY OF STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS TO DIVEST FROM
              COMPANIES THAT INVEST IN NORTH KOREA.

    (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that the United
States should support the decision of any State or local government
that for moral, prudential, or reputational reasons divests from, or
prohibits the investment of assets of such State or local government
in, a person that engages in investment activities in North Korea, if
North Korea is subject to economic sanctions imposed by the United
States.
    (b) Authority To Divest.--Notwithstanding any other provision of
law, a State or local government may adopt and enforce measures that
meet the requirements of subsection (d) to divest the assets of such

government determines, using credible information available to the
public, engages in investment activities in North Korea described in
subsection (c).
    (c) Investment Activities Described.--A person engages in
investment activities in North Korea described in this subsection if
the person--
            (1) has an investment of $10,000 or more in North Korea; or

        in credit to another person, for 45 days or more, if such

under subsection (b) shall meet the following requirements:
            (1) Notice.--The State or local government shall provide

        after the date on which written notice is provided to such

            (3) Opportunity for hearing.--The State or local government
        at issue shall provide an opportunity to comment in writing to
        each person with respect to which a measure is to be applied
        under this section. If such person demonstrates to such State
        or local government that such person does not engage in
        investment activities in North Korea described in subsection
        (c), such measure shall not apply to such person.
            (4) Sense of congress on avoiding erroneous targeting.--It
        is the sense of Congress that a State or local government
        should not adopt a measure under subsection (b) with respect to
        a person unless such State or local government has made every
        effort to avoid erroneously targeting such person and has
        verified that such person engages in investment activities in
        North Korea described in subsection (c).
    (e) Notice to Department of Justice.--Not later than 30 days after
a State of local government applies a measure under this section, such
State or local government shall notify the Attorney General of such
measure.

                fund, or similar instrument, that is controlled by a
                State or local government.
                    (B) Exception.--The term ``asset'' does not include
                employee benefit plans covered by title I of the
                Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (29
                U.S.C. 1001 et seq.).
            (2) Investment.--The term ``investment'' includes--
                    (A) a commitment or contribution of funds or
                property;

        subsection (i), this section applies to measures applied by a

        (2)) applied by such State or local government before the date
        of the enactment of this Act that provides for the divestment
        of assets of such State or local government from, or prohibits
        the investment of the assets of such State or local government
        in, any person that such State or local government determines,

        after the date of the enactment of this Act.
    (j) Rule of Construction.--Nothing in this Act or any other
provision of law authorizing sanctions with respect to North Korea
shall be construed to abridge the authority of a State or local
government to issue and enforce rules governing the safety, soundness,
and solvency of a financial institution subject to its jurisdiction or
the business of insurance pursuant to the Act of March 9, 1945 (15
U.S.C. 1011 et seq.) (commonly known as the ``McCarran-Ferguson Act'').

with subparagraph (C) of such section, as added by subsection (a)(3).

plan, as defined in section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income
Security Act of 1974 (29 U.S.C. 1002(3)), may divest plan assets from,
or avoid investing plan assets in, any person the fiduciary determines

or duties imposed upon such fiduciary by subparagraph (A) or (B) of

            (1) such fiduciary makes such determination using credible
        information that is available to the public; and
            (2) such fiduciary prudently determines that the result of
        such divestment or avoidance of investment would not be

                    (A) a lower rate of return than alternative
                investments with commensurate degrees of risk; or
                    (B) a higher degree of risk than alternative
                investments with commensurate rates of return.

        camp, in a format that, if published, would not compromise the

        United States to capture geospatial imagery.
    (b) Form.--The report required under subsection (a) shall be
included in the first report required to be submitted to Congress after

foreign state (as defined in section 1603 of such title), and (as
