  Mr. HELMS proposed an amendment to the bill, S. 2522, supra; as 
follows:

       On page 140, between lines 19 and 20, insert the following:

     SEC. ____. SUPPORT BY THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION FOR SERBIA.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       (1) General Dragolub Ojdanic, Minister of Defense of the 
     Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) and an 
     indicted war criminal, visited Moscow from May 7 through May 
     12, 2000, as a guest of the Government of the Russian 
     Federation, attended the inauguration of President Vladimir 
     Putin, and held talks with Russian Defense Minister Igor 
     Sergeyev and Army Chief of Staff Anatoly Kvashnin;
       (2) General Ojdanic was military Chief of Staff of the 
     Federal Republic of Yugoslavia during the Kosovo war and has 
     been indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the 
     Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) for crimes against humanity and 
     violations of the laws and customs of war for alleged 
     atrocities against Albanians in Kosovo;
       (3) international warrants have been issued by the 
     International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia for 
     General Ojdanic's arrest and extradition to the Hague;
       (4) the Government of the Russian Federation, a permanent 
     member of the United Nations Security Council which 
     established the International Criminal Tribunal for the 
     Former Yugoslavia, has an obligation to arrest General 
     Ojdanic and extradite him to the Hague;
       (5) on May 16, 2000, Russian Minister of Economics Andrei 
     Shapovalyants announced that his government has provided the 
     Serbian regime of Slobodan Milosevic $102,000,000 of a 
     $150,000,000 loan it had reactivated and will sell the 
     Government of Serbia $32,000,000 of oil despite the fact that 
     the international community has imposed economic sanctions 
     against the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia 
     and the Government of Serbia;
       (6) the Government of the Russian Federation is providing 
     the Milosevic regime such assistance while it is seeking debt 
     relief from the international community and loans from the 
     International Monetary Fund, and while it is receiving corn 
     and grain as food aid from the United States;
       (7) the hospitality provided to General Ojdanic 
     demonstrates that the Government of the Russian Federation 
     rejects the indictments brought by the International Criminal 
     Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia against him and other 
     officials, including Slobodan Milosevic, for alleged 
     atrocities committed during the Kosovo war; and
       (8) the relationship between the Government of the Russian 
     Federation and the Governments of the Federal Republic of 
     Yugoslavia and Serbia only encourages the regime of Slobodan 
     Milosevic to foment instability in the Balkans and thereby 
     jeopardizes the safety and security of American military and 
     civilian personnel and raises questions about Russia's 
     commitment to its responsibilities as a member of the North 
     American Treaty Organization-led peacekeeping mission in 
     Kosovo.
       (b) Actions.--
       (1) Fifteen days after the date of enactment of this Act, 
     the President shall submit a report to Congress detailing all 
     loans, financial assistance, and energy sales the Government 
     of the Russian Federation or entities acting on its behalf 
     has provided since June 1999, and intends to provide to the 
     Government of Serbia or the Government of the Federal 
     Republic of Yugoslavia or any entities under the control of 
     the Governments of Serbia or the Federal Republic of 
     Yugoslavia.
       (2) If that report determines that the Government of the 
     Russian Federation or other entities acting on its behalf has 
     provided or intends to provide the governments of Serbia or 
     the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia or any entity under their 
     control any loans or economic assistance and oil sales, then 
     the following shall apply:
       (A) The Secretary of State shall reduce assistance 
     obligated to the Russian Federation by an amount equal in 
     value to the loans, financial assistance, and energy sales 
     the Government of the Russian Federation has provided and 
     intends to provide to the Governments of Serbia and the 
     Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
       (B)(i) The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the 
     United States executive directors of the international 
     financial institutions to oppose, and vote against, any 
     extension by those institutions of any financial assistance 
     (including any technical assistance or grant) of any kind to 
     the Government of the Russian Federation except for loans and 
     assistance that serve basic human needs.
       (ii) In this subparagraph, the term ``international 
     financial institution'' includes the International Monetary 
     Fund, the International Bank for Reconstruction and 
     Development, the International Development Association, the 
     International Finance Corporation, the Multilateral 
     Investment Guaranty Agency, and the European Bank for 
     Reconstruction and Development.
       (C) The United States shall suspend existing programs to 
     the Russia Federation provided by the Export-Import Bank and 
     the Overseas Private Investment Corporation and any 
     consideration of any new loans, guarantees, and other forms 
     of assistance by the Export-Import Bank or the Overseas 
     Private Investment Corporation to Russia.
       (D) The President of the United States should instruct his 
     representatives to negotiations on Russia's international 
     debt to oppose further forgiveness, restructuring, and 
     rescheduling of that debt, including that being considered 
     under the ``Comprehensive'' Paris Club negotiations.

Mr. Murkowski)) proposed an amendment to the bill, S. 2522, supra; as 
follows:

       On page 140, between lines 19 and 20, insert the following:

     SEC. ____. USE OF FUNDS FOR THE UNITED STATES-ASIA 
                   ENVIRONMENTAL PARTNERSHIP.

       Notwithstanding any other provision of law that restricts 
     assistance to foreign countries, funds appropriated by this 
     or any other Act making appropriations pursuant to part I of 
     the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 that are made available 
     for the United States-Asia Environmental Partnership may be 
     made available for activities for the People's Republic of 
     China.

  Mr. BAUCUS. Mr. President, I rise today in support of the Baucus-
Roberts amendment to include China in the environmental and 
humanitarian U.S.-Asia Environmental Partnership (USAEP). This program 
provides an invaluable service to the rapidly developing countries of 
Asia. Through sharing knowledge and technologies developed to resolve 
problems with the water, land and sky, the USAEP improves the lives of 
hundreds of millions of people.
  Unfortunately, China has yet to take part in this important program. 
Our amendment seeks to undo this outdated sanction on Asia's largest 
and most environmentally sensitive nation.
  Let me share a few highlights about the program. First, the USAEP 
provides trained environmental and commercial specialists that provide 
business counseling to Asians and Americans. They help to link 
prospective business partners and identify innovative, cost-effective 
solutions to sensitive environmental problems.
  Making USAEP funds available for U.S.-China Partnerships would 
benefit both our countries. For example, access to funding for 
partnerships with China would have a tremendous positive effect on many 
states such as Montana. These funds would open large markets for 
environmental services that, for all practical purposes, have been 
closed to business from the United States.
  The Chinese need for environmental services is extreme. China 
requires more than $10 billion in annual investment to combat water 
pollution, air pollution, municipal and industrial waste, agricultural 
runoff and protection of natural environments. Much of the expertise 
required to address these problems will have to come from outside of 
China.
  Montana possesses an outstanding environmental industry with the 
skills and experience to help China address these problems. Despite the 
fact that Montana companies have exactly the expertise that China needs 
to address its environmental problems, Montana companies have been 
unable to enter the Chinese market. The State government and the 
companies themselves lack the funding required to develop long-term 
relationships with appropriate Chinese companies or government 
officials.
  China already has extensive environmental cooperation with Canada, 
Europe and Japan. Environmental Minister Xie Zhenhua has attributed the 
relative lack of cooperation between U.S. businesses and China to the 
low level of U.S. government funding for business development and 
technology transfer.
  This lack of funding for has not only limited U.S. access to Chinese 
markets for environmental services but it has increased the income 
disparity between large exporting states and rural states like Montana. 
California and Washington, states that can afford to promote business 
development, have seen exports to China grow significantly over the 
past 5 years. Meanwhile, the incomes of Montanans have experienced a 
steady decline relative to these richer states.
  USAEP funding to support development of U.S.-Chinese business 
relationships is vital to the growth of Montana's environmental 
industry. Even modest funding for business development could lead to 
millions of dollars to the Montana economy. Without a

[[Page S5566]]

doubt, similar opportunities would be available nationwide.
  It's time to do the right thing. The time is ripe for such action, 
particularly as China prepares to enter the rules-based trading system 
we know as the World Trade Organizations.
  I urge my colleagues to join Senator Roberts and me in this important

       It is the sense of the Senate that--
       (1) consideration of permanent normal trade relations 
     treatment for the People's Republic of China is extremely 
     important for the continued strength of the United States 
     economy because it will give United States businesses, 
     workers, and farmers an opportunity to participate in the 
     world's fastest growing economy while ensuring that the 
     United States reaps the benefits contained in the Agreement 
     on Market Access Between the People's Republic of China and 
     the United States of America that was negotiated last fall in 
     the context of the accession of the People's Republic of 
     China to the World Trade Organization;
       (2) upon its accession to the World Trade Organization, the 
     People's Republic of China will be subject to the same rules 
     governing international trade as other members of the World 
     Trade Organization; and
       (3) it is important for the Senate to maintain the momentum 
     that accompanied passage by the House of Representatives of 
     legislation granting permanent normal trade relations 
     treatment to the People's Republic of China, by bringing the 
     legislation to the floor of the Senate for a vote before the 
     July recess.

  (Ordered to lie on the table.)
  Mr. COVERDELL (for himself, Mr. Leahy, and Mr. Helms) submitted an 
amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill, S. 2522, supra; 
as follows:

       At the appropriate place in the bill, insert the following:

     SEC.   . PERU.

       (a) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate 
     that:
       (1) the Organization of American States (OAS) Electoral 
     Observer Mission, led by Eduardo Stein, deserves the 
     recognition and gratitude of the United States for having 
     performed an extraordinary service in promoting 
     representative democracy in the Americas by working to ensure 
     free and fair elections in Peru and by exposing efforts of 
     the Government of Peru to manipulate the national elections 
     in April and May of 2000 to benefit the president in power.

[[Page S5567]]

       (2) the Government of Peru failed to establish the 
     conditions for free and fair elections--both for the April 9 
     election as well as for the May 28 run-off--by not taking 
     effective steps to correct the ``insufficiencies, 
     irregularities, inconsistencies, and inequities'' documented 
     by the OAS Electoral Observation Mission.
       (3) the United States Government should support the work of 
     the OAS high-level mission, and that such mission should base 
     its specific recommendations on the views of civil society in 
     Peru regarding commitments by their government to respect 
     human rights, the rule of law, the independence and 
     constitutional role of the judiciary and national congress, 
     and freedom of expression and journalism.
       (4) in accordance with P.L. 106-186, the United States must 
     review and modify as appropriate its political, economic, and 
     military relations with Peru and work with other democracies 
     in this hemisphere and elsewhere toward a restoration of 
     democracy in Peru.
       (b) Report.--Not later than 30 days after the date of the 
     enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State shall submit to 
     the appropriate committees of Congress a report evaluating 
     United States political, economic, and military relations 
     with Peru, in accordance with P.L. 106-186. Such report 
     should review, but not be limited to, the following.
       (1) The effectiveness of providing United States assistance 
     to Peru only through independent non-governmental 
     organizations or international organizations;
       (2) Scrutiny of all United States anti-narcotics assistance 
     to Peru and the effectiveness of providing such assistance 
     through legitimate civilian agencies and the appropriateness 
     of providing this assistance to any military or intelligence 
     units that are known to have violated human rights, 
     suppressed freedom of expression or undermined free and fair 
     elections.
       (3) The need to increase support to Peru through 
     independent non-governmental organizations and international 
     organizations to promote the rule of law, separation of 
     powers, political pluralism, and respect for human rights, 
     and to evaluate termination of support for entities that have 
     cooperated with the undemocratic maneuvers of the executive 
     branch; and,
       (4) The effectiveness of United States policy of supporting 
     loans or other assistance for Peru through international 
     financial institutions (such as the World Bank and Inter-
     American Development Bank), and an evaluation of terminating 
     support to entities of the Government of Peru that have 
     willfully violated human rights, suppressed freedom of 
     expression, or undermined free and fair elections.
       (5) The extent to which Peru benefits from the Andean Trade 
     Preferences Act and the ramifications of conditioning 
     participation in that program on respect for the rule of law 
     and representative democracy.
       (c) Determination.--Not later than 90 days after the date 
     of the enactment of this Act, the President shall determine 
     and report to the appropriate committees of Congress whether 
     the Government of Peru has made substantial progress in 
     improving its respect for human rights, the rule of law 
     (including fair trials of accused), the independence and 
     constitutional role of the judiciary and national congress, 
     and freedom of expression and independent journalism.
       (d) Prohibition.--If the President determines and reports 
     pursuant to subsection (c) that the Government of Peru has 
     not made substantial progress, no funds appropriated by this 
     Act may be made available for the Government of Peru, and the 
     Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the United States 
     executive directors to the international financial 
     institutions to use the voice and vote of the United States 
     to oppose loans to the Government of Peru, except loans to 
     support basic human needs.
       (e) Exception.--The prohibition in subsection (d) shall not 
     apply to humanitarian assistance, democracy assistance, anti-
     narcotics assistance, or assistance to support binational 
     peace activities involving Peru and Ecuador.
       (f) Waiver.--The President may waive subsection (d) for 
     periods not to exceed 90 days if he certifies to the 
     appropriate committees of Congress that doing so is vital to 
     the national interests of the United States and will promote 
     the respect for human rights and the rule of law in Peru.
       (g) Definition.--For the purposes of this section, 
     ``appropriate committees of Congress'' means the Committee on 
     Appropriations and the Committee on Foreign Relations in the 
     Senate and the Committee on Appropriations and Committee on 
     International Relations in the House of Representatives. For 
     the purposes of this section, ``humanitarian assistance'' 
     includes but is not limited to assistance to support health 
     and basic education.

     SEC. ____. UNITED STATES-CUBAN MUTUAL ASSISTANCE IN THE 
                   INTERDICTION OF ILLICIT DRUGS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) In 1989, the Department of Defense was designated by 
     Congress as the ``lead agency for detection and monitoring of 
     areal and maritime trafficking''.
       (2) Several United States law enforcement authorities have 
     expressed the need for increased cooperation with Cuban 
     authorities in the area of drug interdiction.
       (3) At least 30 percent of the illegal drugs that enter the 
     United States are transported through the Caribbean region.
       (4) The airspace and territorial waters of Cuba are 
     attractive havens for drug smugglers and are vital to the 
     flow of illegal drugs to the United States.
       (5) There is no evidence of the involvement of the 
     Government of Cuba in drug trafficking.
       (6) Cuban authorities have cooperated with United States 
     authorities to interdict illegal drug shipments.
       (7) The Government of Cuba has expressed its desire to 
     expand cooperation with the United States on drug 
     interdiction efforts by accepting an upgrading of the current 
     telex link between the Cuban Border Guard and the United 
     States Coast Guard and by allowing a United States Coast 
     Guard officer to be stationed at the United States Interests 
     Section in Havana, Cuba.
       (b) Allocation of Funds.--Of the amount appropriated under 
     the heading ``Department of State, International Narcotics 
     Control and Law Enforcement'', up to $1,000,000 shall be 
     available to the Secretary of Defense, on behalf of the 
     United States Coast Guard, the United States Customs Service, 
     and other bodies, to work with the appropriate authorities of 
     the Cuban government to provide for greater cooperation, 
     coordination, and other mutual assistance in the interdiction 
     of illicit drugs being transported over Cuban airspace and 
     waters.

     SEC. ____. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON UNITED STATES CITIZENS HELD 
                   HOSTAGE IN COLOMBIA.

       (a) The Senate finds that--

[[Page S5568]]

       (1) illegal paramilitary groups in Colombia pose a serious 
     obstacle to U.S. and Colombian counter-narcotics efforts;
       (2) abduction of innocent civilians is often used by such 
     groups to gain influence and recognition;
       (3) three U.S. citizens, David Mankins, Mark Rich, and Rick 
     Tenenoff, who were engaged in humanitarian and religious work 
     were abducted by one such group and have been held hostage in 
     Colombia since January 31, 1993;
       (4) these 3 men have the distinction of being the longest-
     held American hostages;
       (5) their kidnappers are believed to be members of the FARC 
     narco-guerrilla organization in Colombia;
       (6) the families of these American citizens have not had 
     any word about their safety or welfare for 7 years; and
       (7) such acts against humanitarian workers are acts of 
     cowardice and are against basic human dignity and are 
     perpetrated by criminals and thus not deserving any form of

                    BOXER AMENDMENTS NOS. 3540-3542

  (Ordered to lie on the table.)
  Mrs. BOXER submitted three amendments intended to be proposed by her 
to the bill, S. 2522, supra; as follows:

                           Amendment No. 3540

       At the appropriate place, add the following:
       Sec.   . (a) Findings.--The Senate finds that--
       (1) According to the World Health Organization, in 1999, 
     there were 5.6 million new cases of HIV/AIDS throughout the 
     world, and two-thirds of those (3.8 million) were in sub-
     Saharan Africa.
       (2) Sub-Saharan Africa is the only region in the world 
     where a majority of those with HIVAIDS--55 percent--are 
     women.
       (3) When women get the disease, they often pass it along to 
     their children, and over 2 million children in sub-Saharan 
     Africa are living with HIV/AIDS.
       (4) New investments and treatments hold out promise of 
     making progress against mother-to-child transmission of HIV/
     AIDS. For example--
       (A) a study in Uganda demonstrated that a new drug could 
     prevent almost one-half of the HIV transmissions from mothers 
     to infants, at a fraction of the cost of other treatments; 
     and
       (B) a study of South Africa's population estimated that if 
     all pregnant women in that country took an antiviral 
     medication during labor, as many as 110,000 new cases of HIV/
     AIDS could be prevented over the next five years in South 
     Africa alone.
       (5) The Technical Assistance, Trade Promotion, and Anti-
     Corruption Act of 2000, as approved by the Senate Foreign 
     Relations Committee on March 23, 2000, ensures that not less 
     than 8.3 percent of USAID's HIV/AIDS funding is used to 
     combat mother-to-child transmission.
       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate 
     that of the funds provided in this Act, the USAID should 
     place a high priority on efforts, including providing 
     medications, is prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/
     AIDS.

                           Amendment No. 3541

       At the end, add the following:

               TITLE  --INTERNATIONAL HEALTH EMERGENCIES

       In addition to amounts otherwise appropriated in this Act, 
     $94 million shall be available for necessary expenses to 
     carry out the provisions of Chapters 1 and 10 of part I of 
     the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, for global health and 
     related activities: Provided, That of the funds appropriated 
     under this title, not less than $75 million shall be made 
     available for programs to combat HIV/AIDS: Provided further, 
     That of the funds appropriated under this title, not less 
     than $19 million shall be made available for the prevention, 
     treatment, and control of tuberculosis: Provided further, 
     That amounts made available under this title are hereby 
     designated by the Congress to be emergency requirements 
     pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and 
     Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985: Provided further, That 
     such amounts shall be made available only after submission to 
     the Congress of a formal budget request by the President that 
     includes designation of the entire amount of the request an 
     emergency requirements as defined in such Act.

   prohibition on use of department of defense resources for certain 
                         activities in colombia

       Sec. 6107. (a) Support for Counterinsurgency Operations.--
     Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no funds 
     appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be 
     obligated or expended for the use of any personnel, 
     equipment, or other resources of the Department of Defense

       (c) Counterdrug Field Operations.--Notwithstanding any 
     other provision of law, no funds appropriated or otherwise 
     made available by this Act may be obligated or expended to 
     permit a member of the Armed Forces or civilian employee of 
     the Department of Defense to--

     counterdrug authority, on any counterdrug field operation; or
       (2) participate in any activity in which counterdrug-
     related hostilities are imminent.
       (d) Sense of Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate that 
     members of the Armed Forces of the United States in Colombia 
     should make every effort to minimize the possibility of 
     confrontation, whether armed or otherwise, with civilians in 
     Colombia.

proposed an amendment to the bill S. 2522, supra; as follows:

       On page 140, between lines 19 and 20, insert the following:

     SEC. ____. SENSE OF SENATE ON DEBT RELIEF FOR WORLD'S POOREST 
                   COUNTRIES.

       (a) Findings.--The Senate makes the following findings:
       (1) The burden of external debt has become a major 
     impediment to economic growth and poverty reduction in many 
     of the world's poorest countries.
       (2) Until recently, the United States Government and other 
     official creditors sought to address this problem by 
     rescheduling loans and in some cases providing limited debt 
     reduction.
       (3) Despite such efforts, the cumulative debt of many of 
     the world's poorest countries continued to grow beyond their 
     capacity to repay.
       (4) In 1996, the Group of Seven, the World Bank, and the 
     International Monetary Fund adopted the Heavily Indebted Poor 
     Countries Initiative (HIPC), a commitment by the 
     international community that all multilateral and bilateral 
     creditors, acting in a coordinated and concerted fashion, 
     would reduce poor country debt to a sustainable level.
       (5) A wide range of organizations and institutions, 
     including leading churches worldwide have endorsed the 
     concept of writing off the debt of the Heavily Indebted Poor 
     Countries.
       (6) In 1999, Congress passed and the President signed into 
     law funding for the forgiveness of a portion of the bilateral 
     debt owed by the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries to the 
     United States subject to terms and conditions set forth in 
     Public Law 106-113.
       (7) In the supplemental budget request for fiscal year 2000 
     and in the fiscal year 2001 budget request submitted by the 
     President, the President asked for $435,000,000 to fund both 
     bilateral debt owed by the HIPC to the United States and 
     contributions to the HIPC Trust Fund which would forgive debt 
     owed by the HIPC to the regional development banks.
       (8) Funding for United States participation in the HIPC 
     Trust Fund is subject to authorization by the appropriate 
     committees.
       (9) Legislation fully authorizing the President's fiscal 
     year 2001 budget request for United States participation in 
     the HIPC Trust Fund, and full use of the International 
     Monetary Fund gold earnings, has been reported by the Senate 
     Committee on Foreign Relations, and is currently under review 
     by the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban 
     Affairs.
       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate 
     that--
       (1) the relevant committees of the Senate should report to 
     the full Senate legislation authorizing comprehensive debt 
     relief for poor countries;
       (2) these authorizations of bilateral and multilateral debt 
     relief should be designed to strengthen and expand the 
     private sector, encourage increased trade and investment, 
     support the development of free markets, and promote broad-
     scale economic growth in beneficiary countries;
       (3) these authorizations should also support the adoption 
     of policies to alleviate poverty and to ensure that benefits 
     are shared widely among the population, such as through 
     initiatives to advance education, improve health, combat 
     AIDS, and promote clean water and environmental protection;
       (4) these authorizations should promote debt relief 
     agreements that are designed and implemented in a transparent 
     manner so as to ensure productive allocation of future 
     resources and prevention of waste;
       (5) these authorizations should promote debt relief 
     agreements that have the broad participation of the citizenry 
     of the debtor country and should ensure that country's 
     circumstances are adequately taken into account;
       (6) these authorizations should ensure that no country 
     should receive the benefits of debt relief if that country 
     does not cooperate with the United States on terrorism or 
     narcotics enforcement, is a gross violator of the human 
     rights of its citizens, or is engaged in military or civil 
     conflict that undermines poverty alleviation efforts or 
     spends excessively on its military; and
       (7) if the conditions set forth in paragraphs (1) through 
     (6) are met in the authorization legislation currently 
     pending before the relevant committees, Congress should fully 
     fund bilateral and multilateral debt relief to ensure the 
     maximum leverage of international funds and the maximum 
     benefit to the eligible countries.

       (A) forgiving the debt of countries qualifying for HIPC on 
     the terms set by the Paris Club of lender countries; and
       (B) suffering unanticipated losses of assets and revenue.
       (b) It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) lender developing countries deserve commendation for 
     their full participation in the HIPC initiative;
       (2) the Secretary of State and the Secretary of the 
     Treasury should explore ways to alleviate the losses of debt 
     relief by lender developing countries, including Costa Rica, 
     and regional institutions; and
       (3) international financial institutions and other lenders 
     should take account of the participation of developing 
     countries as lenders in debt relief under the HIPC initiative 
     in future lending decisions relating to those countries, 
     including Costa Rica.

               L. CHAFEE (AND OTHERS) AMENDMENT NO. 3551

  Mr. McCONNELL (for L. Chafee (for himself, Mr. Mack, Mr. Sarbanes, 
Mr. Biden, Mr. Hagel, Mr. Wellstone, Mr. Lieberman, Ms. Landrieu, Mr. 
Dodd, Mr. Lautenberg, and Mr. Jeffords)) proposed an amendment to the 
bill S. 2522, supra; as follows:

       On page 140, between lines 19 and 20, insert the following:

     SEC. ____. SENSE OF SENATE ON DEBT RELIEF FOR WORLD'S POOREST 
                   COUNTRIES.

       (a) Findings.--The Senate makes the following findings:
       (1) The burden of external debt has become a major 
     impediment to economic growth and poverty reduction in many 
     of the world's poorest countries.
       (2) Until recently, the United States Government and other 
     official creditors sought to address this problem by 
     rescheduling loans and in some cases providing limited debt 
     reduction.
       (3) Despite such efforts, the cumulative debt of many of 
     the world's poorest countries continued to grow beyond their 
     capacity to repay.
       (4) In 1996, the Group of Seven, the World Bank, and the 
     International Monetary Fund adopted the Heavily Indebted Poor 
     Countries Initiative (HIPC), a commitment by the 
     international community that all multilateral and bilateral 
     creditors, acting in a coordinated and concerted fashion, 
     would reduce poor country debt to a sustainable level.
       (5) A wide range of organizations and institutions, 
     including leading churches worldwide, have endorsed the 
     concept of writing off the debt of the Heavily Indebted Poor 
     Countries.
       (6) In 1999, Congress passed and the President signed into 
     law funding for the forgiveness of a portion of the bilateral 
     debt owed by the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries to the 
     United States subject to terms and conditions set forth in 
     Public Law 106-113.
       (7) In the supplemental budget request for fiscal year 2000 
     and in the fiscal year 2001 budget request submitted by the 
     President, the President asked for $435,000,000 to fund both 
     bilateral debt owed by the HIPC to the United States and 
     contributions to the HIPC Trust Fund which would forgive debt 
     owed by the HIPC to the regional development banks.
       (8) Funding for United States participation in the HIPC 
     Trust Fund is subject to authorization by the appropriate 
     committees.
       (9) Legislation fully authorizing the President's fiscal 
     year 2001 budget request for United States participation in 
     the HIPC Trust Fund, and full use of the International 
     Monetary Fund gold earnings, has been reported by the Senate 
     Committee on Foreign Relations, and is currently under review 
     by the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban 
     Affairs.
       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate 
     that--
       (1) the relevant committees of the Senate should report to 
     the full Senate legislation authorizing comprehensive debt 
     relief for poor countries;
       (2) these authorizations of bilateral and multilateral debt 
     relief should be designed to strengthen and expand the 
     private sector, encourage increased trade and investment, 
     support the development of free markets, and promote broad-
     scale economic growth in beneficiary countries;
       (3) these authorizations should also support the adoption 
     of policies to alleviate poverty and to ensure that benefits 
     are shared widely among the population, such as through 
     initiatives to advance education, improve health, combat 
     AIDS, and promote clean water and environmental protection;
       (4) these authorizations should promote debt relief 
     agreements that are designed and implemented in a transparent 
     manner so as to ensure productive allocation of future 
     resources and prevention of waste;
       (5) these authorizations should promote debt relief 
     agreements that have the broad participation of the citizenry 
     of the debtor country and should ensure that country's 
     circumstances are adequately taken into account;
       (6) these authorizations should ensure that no country 
     should receive the benefits of debt relief if that country 
     does not cooperate with the United States on terrorism or 
     narcotics enforcement, is a gross violator of the human 
     rights of its citizens, or is engaged in military or civil 
     conflict that undermines poverty alleviation efforts or 
     spends excessively on its military; and
       (7) if the conditions set forth in paragraphs (1) through 
     (6) are met in the authorization legislation currently 
     pending before the relevant committees, Congress should fully 
     fund bilateral and multilateral debt relief to ensure the 
     maximum leverage of international funds and the maximum 
     benefit to the eligible countries.

[[Page S5573]]

       Sec.   . (a) Identification and Reporting.--Within 40 days 
     of the submission of the National Trade Estimate Report, the 
     Department of Commerce shall submit an annual report to the 
     President and appropriate Congressional committees that 
     identifies countries that lack the necessary organization, 
     resources, and expertise to ensure openness, efficiency, and 
     transparency in government procurement and that are 
     recipients of multilateral or U.S. bilateral assistance. That 
     report shall:
       (i) identify countries that lack the necessary 
     organization, resources, and expertise to ensure openness, 
     efficiency, and transparency in government procurement and 
     that are recipients of multilateral or U.S. bilateral 
     assistance; and
       (ii) describe patterns or practices of the lack of 
     transparency in government procurement or government owned 
     enterprises procurement in each country.
     The Department of Commerce shall consult with interested 
     private sector representatives in compiling its report.
       (b) Impact of the Lack of Transparency.--When the report 
     determines that a country lacks the necessary organization, 
     resources, and expertise to ensure openness, efficiency, and 
     transparency in government procurement and that are 
     recipients of multilateral or U.S. bilateral assistance,
       (i) the Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the United 
     States Executive Director of each international financial 
     institution to use the voice and vote of the United States to 
     oppose the use of funds appropriated or made available by the 
     United States for any non-humanitarian assistance until the 
     granting institution and recipient country has adopted an 
     anti-corruption plan that requires the use of independent 
     third party procurement monitoring and other similar services 
     designed to enhance transparency, and
       (ii) no funds appropriated or made available by the United 
     States for non-humanitarian foreign assistance programs, 
     including the activities of the Agency for International 
     Development, may be expended for a government procurement 
     practice unless such non-humanitarian foreign assistance 
     programs incorporate independent third party procurement 
     monitoring and other similar services designed to enhance 
     transparency.

                 KYL (AND DOMENICI) AMENDMENT NO. 3558

  Mr. McCONNELL (for Mr. Kyl (for himself and Mr. Domenici)) proposed 
two amendments to the bill S. 2522, supra; as follows:

       At an appropriate place in the bill, insert the following:

     SEC.   . IMPLEMENTATION OF SECURITY REFORMS AT THE DEPARTMENT 
                   OF ENERGY.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       (1) On March 18, 1999, President Clinton asked the 
     President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB) to 
     undertake an inquiry and issue a report on ``the security 
     threat at the Department of Energy's weapons labs and the 
     adequacy of the measures that have been taken to address 
     it.''
       (2) In June 1999, the PFIAB issued a report titled 
     ``Science at its Best, Security at its Worst,'' which 
     concluded the Department of Energy ``represents the best of 
     America's scientific talent and achievement, but it has been 
     responsible for the worst security record on secrecy that the 
     members of this panel have ever encountered.''
       (3) The PFIAB report stated, ``Organizational disarray, 
     managerial neglect, and a culture of arrogance--both at DOE 
     headquarters and the labs themselves--conspired to create an 
     espionage scandal waiting to happen.''
       (4) The PFIAB report further stated, ``The Department of 
     Energy is a dysfunctional bureaucracy that has proven it is 
     incapable of reforming itself. * * * Reorganization is 
     clearly warranted to resolve the many specific problems with 
     security and counterintelligence in the weapons laboratories, 
     but also to address the lack of accountability that has 
     become endemic throughout the entire Department. * * * real 
     and lasting security and counterintelligence reform at the 
     weapons labs is simply unworkable within DOE's current 
     structure and culture;''
       (5) The PFIAB report stated, ``Specifically, we recommend 
     that the Congress pass and the President sign legislation 
     that: Creates a new, semi-autonomous Agency * * * [to] 
     oversee all nuclear weapons-related matters previously housed 
     in DOE.''
       (6) The bipartisan Select Committee on U.S. National 
     Security and Military/Commercial Concerns with the People's  
     Republic of China of the House of Representatives released 
     an unclassified report on May 25, 1999 which concluded 
     that ``The People's Republic of China (PRC) has stolen 
     design information on the United States' most advanced 
     thermonuclear weapons. These thefts of nuclear secrets 
     from our national weapons laboratories enabled the PRC to 
     design, develop, and successfully test modern strategic 
     nuclear weapons sooner than would otherwise have been 
     possible. The stolen U.S. nuclear secrets give the PRC 
     design information on thermonuclear weapons on a par with 
     our own.''
       (7) The report of the Select Committee further concluded 
     that, ``Despite repeated PRC thefts of the most sophisticated 
     U.S. nuclear weapons technology, security at our national 
     nuclear weapons laboratories does not meet even minimal 
     standards.''
       (8) In response to the findings of the Select Committee on 
     U.S. National Security and Military/Commercial Concerns with 
     the People's Republic of China of the House of 
     Representatives and the President's Foreign Intelligence 
     Advisory Board, Senators Kyl, Domenici, and Murkowski offered 
     Amendment 446 to the Fiscal Year 2000 Intelligence 
     Authorization Act calling for the creation of a semi-
     autonomous agency to manage all United States nuclear weapons 
     programs, which was passed by the Senate on July 21, 1999, by 
     a vote of 96 to 1. This amendment called for the semi-
     autonomous agency to be organized with clear lines of 
     authority and accountability to replace the previous 
     structure with confused, overlapping reporting channels and 
     diffused responsibility that led to earlier security 
     failures.
       (9) The provisions of Amendment 446 were incorporated in 
     the Fiscal Year 2000 Defense Authorization Conference Report, 
     which was approved by the House of Representatives on 
     September 15, 1999, by a vote of 375 to 45, and the Senate on 
     September 22, 1999, by a vote of 93 to 5.
       (10) President Clinton signed the National Defense 
     Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2000 (Public Law 106-65) on 
     October 5, 1999.
       (11) Notwithstanding his signing into law the legislation 
     creating the National Nuclear Security Administration headed 
     by a new

[[Page S5574]]

     Under Secretary, on October 5, 1999, President Clinton issued 
     a statement which said, ``Until further notice, the Secretary 
     of Energy shall perform all duties and functions of the Under 
     Secretary for Nuclear Security. The Secretary is instructed 
     to guide and direct all personnel of the National Nuclear 
     Security Administration. . . .''
       (12) On May 3, 2000 the nomination of General John Gordon 
     to head the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) 
     was received by the Senate from the President. On June 14, 
     2000, General John Gordon was confirmed by the Senate by a 
     vote of 97 to 0.
       (13) The Secretary of Energy has failed to fully implement 
     the law signed by the President on October 5, 1999. For 
     example, Section 3213 of the National Defense Authorization 
     Act for Fiscal Year 2000 (Public Law 106-65) sates that, with 
     the exception of the Secretary of Energy, NNSA employees, 
     ``shall not be responsible to, or subject to the authority, 
     direction, or control of, any officer, employee, or agent of 
     the Department of Energy.'' Yet page 16 of the Department of 
     Energy's Implementation Plan for the National Nuclear 
     Security Administration released on January 1, 2000, states 
     that in order to manage the performance of non-weapons 
     related work at NNSA facilities such as the three national 
     labs, ``non-NNSA officers or employees of the Department 
     retain the authority to direct NNSA employees and contractor 
     employees with regard to the accomplishment of such work.''
       (14) On May 26, 1999, Secretary of Energy Bill Richardson 
     stated, ``American's can be reassured: Our nation's nuclear 
     secrets are, today, safe and secure.''
       (15) In response to a question from Senator Fitzgerald at a 
     joint hearing of the Committees on Energy and Natural 
     Resources, and Governmental Affairs of the Senate on October 
     19, 1999, that ``So if there's a problem, God forbid, with 
     security at our Nation's labs while we have not fulfilled or 
     appointed somebody as Under Secretary in this new agency 
     within an agency, you would be willing to assume full 
     responsibility. . . .'' Secretary Richardson testified that, 
     ``I would assume full responsibility.''
       (16) The recent security lapses at Los Alamos National 
     Laboratory demonstrates that security and counterintelligence 
     measures continue to be significantly deficient at United 
     States nuclear facilities.
       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the Sense of the Senate 
     that--
       (1) The national security of the United States has been 
     significantly harmed due to weak and ineffective security and 
     counterintelligence measures at America's nuclear facilities.
       (2) The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 
     2000, if implemented, will improve security and 
     counterintelligence measures at United States nuclear 
     facilities by establishing clear lines of authority and 
     accountability to enable lasting reforms to be put in place.
       (3) The President and the Secretary of Energy should 
     faithfully implement the provisions of Public Law 106-65, 
     which established the National Nuclear Security 
     Administration.
       (4) The Secretary of Energy should permit the Administrator 
     of the National Nuclear Security Administration to manage all 
     aspects of United States nuclear weapons programs without 
     interference.
       (5) The Secretary of Energy should drop efforts to ``dual-
     hat'' officers or employees of the Department of Energy to 
     serve concurrently in positions within the National Nuclear 
     Security Administration and the Department of Energy. Such 
     efforts to extensively ``dual-hat'' officials are contrary to 
     the intent of Congress when it passed Public Law 106-65.
       (6) The Administrator of the National Nuclear Security 
     Administration shall take all appropriate steps to ensure 
     that the protection of sensitive and classified information 
     becomes the highest priority of the National Nuclear Security 
     Administration.
                                 ______

  Mr. LEAHY (for Mr. Torricelli (for himself and Mr. Edwards)) proposed 
an amendment to the bill S. 2522, supra; as follows:

       At the appropriate place, insert the following:

              DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

                   Community Planning and Development

                      Community Development Grant

       For an additional amount for ``Community Development Block 
     Grants'', as authorized under title I of the Housing and 
     Community Act of 1974, for emergency expenses resulting from 
     Hurricane Floyd, Hurricane Dennis, and Hurricane Irene, and

     expended for all activities eligible under title I, except 
     those activities reimbursable by the Federal Emergency

                 KYL (AND DOMENICI) AMENDMENT NO. 3583

  (Ordered to lie on the table.)
  Mr. KYL (for himself and Mr. Domenici) submitted an amendment 
intended to be proposed by them to the bill, S. 2522, supra; as 
follows:

       At an appropriate place in the bill, insert the following:

     SEC.  . IMPLEMENTATION OF SECURITY REFORMS AT THE DEPARTMENT 
                   OF ENERGY.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       (1) On March 18, 1999, President Clinton asked the 
     President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB) to 
     undertake an inquiry and issue a report on ``the security 
     threat at the Department of Energy's weapons labs and the 
     adequacy of the measures that have been taken to address 
     it.''
       (2) In June 1999, the PFIAB issued a report titled 
     ``Science at its Best, Security at its Worst,'' which 
     concluded the Department of Energy ``represents the best of 
     America's scientific talent and achievement, but it has been 
     responsible for the worst security record on secrecy that the 
     members of this panel have ever encountered.''
       (3) The PFIAB report stated, ``Organizational disarray, 
     managerial neglect, and a culture of arrogance--both at DOE 
     headquarters and the labs themselves--conspired to create an 
     espionage scandal waiting to happen.''
       (4) The PFIAB report further stated, ``The Department of 
     Energy is a dysfunctional bureaucracy that has proven it is 
     incapable of reforming itself. . . . Reorganization is 
     clearly warranted to resolve the many specific problems with 
     security and counterintelligence in the weapons laboratories, 
     but also to address the lack of accountability that has 
     become endemic throughout the entire Department . . . real 
     and lasting security and counterintelligence reform at the 
     weapons labs is simply unworkable within DOE's current 
     structure and culture;''
       (5) The PFIAB report stated, ``Specifically, we recommend 
     that the Congress pass and the President sign legislation 
     that: Creates a new, semi-autonomous Agency . . . [to] 
     oversee all nuclear weapons-related matters previously housed 
     in DOE.''
       (6) The bipartisan Select Committee on U.S. National 
     Security and Military/Commercial Concerns with the People's 
     Republic of China of the House of Representatives released an 
     unclassified report on May 25, 1999 which concluded that 
     ``The People's Republic of China (PRC) has stolen design 
     information on the United States' most advanced thermonuclear 
     weapons. These thefts of nuclear secrets from our national 
     weapons laboratories enabled the PRC to design, develop, and 
     successfully test modern strategic nuclear weapons sooner 
     than would otherwise have been possible. The stolen U.S. 
     nuclear secrets give the PRC design information on 
     thermonuclear weapons on a par with our own.''
       (7) The report of the Select Committee further concluded 
     that, ``Despite repeated PRC thefts of the most sophisticated 
     U.S. nuclear weapons technology, security at our national 
     nuclear weapons laboratories does not meet even minimal 
     standards.''
       (8) In response to the findings of the Select Committee on 
     U.S. National Security and Military/Commercial Concerns with 
     the People's Republic of China of the House of 
     Representatives and the President's Foreign Intelligence 
     Advisory Board, Senators Kyl, Domenici, and Murkowski offered 
     Amendment 446 to the Fiscal Year 2000 Intelligence 
     Authorization Act calling for the creation of a semi-
     autonomous agency to manage all United States nuclear weapons 
     programs, which was passed by the Senate on July 21, 1999, by 
     a vote of 96 to 1. This amendment called for the semi-
     autonomous agency to be organized with clear lines of 
     authority and accountability to replace the previous 
     structure with confused, overlapping reporting channels and 
     diffused responsibility that led to earlier security 
     failures.
       (9) The provisions of Amendment 446 were incorporated in 
     the Fiscal Year 2000 Defense Authorization Conference Report, 
     which was approved by the House of Representatives on 
     September 15, 1999, by a vote of 375 to 45, and the Senate on 
     September 22, 1999, by a vote of 93 to 5.
       (10) President Clinton signed the National Defense 
     Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2000 (Public Law 106-65) on 
     October 5, 1999.
       (11) Notwithstanding his signing into law the legislation 
     creating the National Nuclear Security Administration headed 
     by a new Under Secretary, on October 5, 1999, President 
     Clinton issued a statement which said, ``Until further 
     notice, the Secretary of Energy shall perform all duties and 
     functions of the Under Secretary for Nuclear Security. The 
     Secretary is instructed to guide and direct all personnel of 
     the National Nuclear Security Administration. . . .''

[[Page S5579]]

       (12) On May 3, 2000 the nomination of General John Gordon 
     to head the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) 
     was received by the Senate from the President. On June 14, 
     2000, General John Gordon was confirmed by the Senate by a 
     vote of 97 to 0.
       (13) The Secretary of Energy has failed to fully implement 
     the law signed by the President on October 5, 1999. For 
     example, Section 3213 of the National Defense Authorization 
     Act for Fiscal Year 2000 (Public Law 106-65) states that, 
     with the exception of the Secretary of Energy, NNSA 
     employees, ``shall not be responsible to, or subject to the 
     authority, direction, or control of, any officer, employee, 
     or agent of the Department of Energy.'' Yet page 16 of the 
     Department of Energy's Implementation Plan for the National 
     Nuclear Security Administration released on January 1, 2000, 
     states that in order to manage the performance of non-weapons 
     related to work at NNSA facilities such as the three national 
     labs, ``non-NNSA officers or employees of the Department 
     retain the authority to direct NNSA employees and contractor 
     employees with regard to the accomplishment of such work.''
       (14) On May 26, 1999, Secretary of Energy Bill Richardson 
     stated, ``Americans can be reassured: Our nation's nuclear 
     secrets are, today, safe and secure.''
       (15) In response to a question from Senator Fitzgerald at a 
     joint hearing of the Committees on Energy and Natural 
     Resources, and Governmental Affairs of the Senate on October 
     19, 1999, that ``So if there's a problem, God forbid, with 
     security at our Nation's labs while we have not fulfilled or 
     appointed somebody as Under Secretary in this new agency 
     within an agency, you would be willing to assume full 
     responsibility. . . .'' Secretary Richardson testified that, 
     ``I would assume full responsibility.''
       (16) The recent security lapses at Los Alamos National 
     Laboratory demonstrates that security and counterintelligence 
     measures continue to be significantly deficient at United 
     States nuclear facilities.
       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the Sense of the Senate 
     that--
       (1) The national security of the United States has been 
     significantly harmed due to weak and ineffective security and 
     counterintelligence measures at America's nuclear facilities.
       (2) The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 
     2000, if implemented, will improve security and 
     counterintelligence measures at United States nuclear 
     facilities by establishing clear lines of authority and 
     accountability to enable lasting reforms to be put in place.
       (3) The President and the Secretary of Energy should 
     faithfully implement the provisions of Public Law 106-65, 
     which established the National Nuclear Security 
     Administration.
       (4) The Secretary of Energy should permit the Administrator 
     of the National Nuclear Security Administration to manage all 
     aspects of United States nuclear weapons programs without 
     interference.
       (5) The Secretary of Energy should drop efforts to ``dual-
     hat'' officers or employees of the Department of Energy to 
     serve concurrently in positions within the National Nuclear 
     Security Administration and the Department of Energy. Such 
     efforts to extensively ``dual-hat'' officials are contrary to 
     the intent of Congress when it passed Public Law 106-65.
       (6) The Administrator of the National Nuclear Security 
     Administration shall take all appropriate steps to ensure 
     that the protection of sensitive and classified information 
     becomes the highest priority of the National Nuclear Security 
     Administration.
