(9) The rate of release from detention of detainees for each district of the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
(b) Annual reports
Beginning October 1, 1999, and not later than October 1 of each year thereafter, the Attorney General shall submit to the Committee on the Judiciary of each House of Congress a report setting forth the data collected under subsection (a) of this section for the fiscal year ending September 30 of that year.
