  So the amendment was rejected.

  Stated for:
  Mr. FILNER. Mr. Chair, on rollcall 279, I was away from the Capitol 
due to prior commitments to my constituents. Had I been present, I 
would have voted ``aye.''


                          Personal Explanation

  Mr. JOHNSON of Illinois. Mr. Chair, on rollcall No. 279, I was 
present for rollcalls 278 and 280. I was talking to constituents from 
Canby, Illinois, off the floor, and inadvertently missed the vote. I 
support reduction in worldwide nuclear armaments, but felt this 
amendment was excessively micromanagerial.
  Had I been present, I would have voted ``present.''

  The Acting CHAIR. The unfinished business is the demand for a

  The Clerk will redesignate the amendment.

          amendment no. 123 offered by mr. conyers of michigan

       At the end of subtitle C of title XII of division A of the 
     bill, add the following:

     SEC. 12XX. RULE OF CONSTRUCTION.

       Nothing in this Act shall be construed as authorizing the 
     use of force against Iran.


       amendment no. 125 offered by mr. duncan of south carolina

       At the end of subtitle D of title XII of division A of the 
     bill, add the following:

     SEC. 12XX. LIMITATION ON FUNDS FOR UNITED STATES 
                   PARTICIPATION IN JOINT MILITARY EXERCISES WITH 
                   EGYPT.

       None of the funds authorized to be appropriated by this Act 
     may be made available for United States participation in 
     joint military exercises with Egypt if the Government of 
     Egypt terminates or withdraws from the 1979 Israeli-Egypt 
     peace treaty.

  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to House Resolution 661, the gentleman 
from California (Mr. McKeon) and the gentleman from Washington (Mr. 
Smith) each will control 10 minutes.
  The Chair recognizes the gentleman from California.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I urge the committee to adopt the 
amendments en bloc, all of which have been examined by both the 
majority and the minority.
  Mr. Chair, I yield 1 minute to my friend and colleague, the gentleman 
from South Carolina (Mr. Duncan).
  Mr. DUNCAN of South Carolina. Mr. Chairman, it is imperative that the 
new government in Egypt adhere to the 1979 Israeli-Egyptian peace 
treaty.
  This amendment conditions U.S. funding for U.S. military 
participation in joint military exercises with Egypt. If Egypt 
abrogates, terminates, or withdraws from the 1979 Israeli-Egypt peace 
treaty, then the U.S. will not fund any joint military exercises with 
Egypt.
  I urge adoption.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chair, I yield 1 minute to the gentleman 
from Massachusetts (Mr. Tierney).
  Mr. TIERNEY. I thank the gentleman.
  There are three amendments that I speak to, Mr. Chairman. I want to 
thank Chairman McKeon and Ranking Member Smith for their support and 
for including these in the en bloc amendment. These amendments are 
examples of areas where we can work together to provide better 
information to this body about the status of our Nation's security. We 
can hold the administration and the executive branch accountable for 
the goals that are set, and we can make certain that these programs are 
more efficient.
  The Government Accountability Office report that I commissioned made 
a specific recommendation that the National Security Council complete 
its efforts to define the agency roles and responsibilities with 
respect to foreign policing and that the Secretary of Defense and the 
Secretary of State establish mechanisms to better share and document 
information among these various agencies. The first amendment, No. 116, 
addresses that and holds them responsible to do just that.
  Secondly, the Department of Defense Operational Energy Strategy 
Implementation Plan is about energy security while saving lives, 
improving capabilities, cutting costs, and lowering risks for both our 
personnel and the Nation. We have to make sure that this amendment, No. 
68, is passed to ensure that accountability.
  The Acting CHAIR. The time of the gentleman has expired.
  Mr. TIERNEY. The third amendment, No. 58, is along the same line.
  I thank the gentleman for recognizing me.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I would like to thank my colleague and 
friend, the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Ms. Ros-Lehtinen 
from Florida, for agreeing to allow amendment No. 114 to proceed on the 
NDAA in the en bloc package, a matter that is within the rule X 
jurisdiction of the Foreign Affairs Committee.
  I reserve the balance of my time.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield back the balance of my 
time.
  Mr. McKEON. I yield back the balance of my time.
  Mr. SENSENBRENNER. Mr. Chair, I rise today in strong support of the 
Sensenbrenner-Kind Amendment to the fiscal year 2013 National Defense 
Authorization Act. This amendment waives the time restrictions to award 
the Medal of Honor to Lieutenant Alonzo Cushing.
  This award is long overdue as Lt. Cushing heroically served his 
country during the Civil War. Lt. Cushing was born in Delafield, WI, 
which is located within my district, and raised in New York. He 
attended the United States Military Academy at West Point, and after 
graduating, was put in command of Battery A, 4th United States 
Artillery, Army of the Potomac for the Union Army. Lt. Cushing was 
praised for his valor and heroics throughout the Civil War, but it was 
his actions at the Battle of Gettysburg which have led to his 
consideration for our nation's highest award.

[[Page H3126]]

  Cushing's battery was at the focal point of the Confederate attack on 
July 3rd at the Battle of Gettysburg. The intense bombardment preceding 
the charge by General George Pickett's troops left Cushing wounded by 
shell fragments, many of his men also wounded, and with only two 
working guns. Rather than withdraw, Lt. Cushing continued to lead his 
unit before succumbing to a fatal gunshot wound.
  The Medal of Honor was not awarded posthumously during the Civil War, 
so Lt. Cushing was not considered. Years later, after the policy was 
changed to award the medal to the dead, Lt. Cushing's name simply did 
not come up. My office became aware of Lt. Cushing's heroic feat almost 
ten years ago, and I am pleased that while it has taken almost 150 
years for Lt. Cushing to be honored for his actions, we are one step 
closer to making this happen. I urge my colleagues to support the 
Sensenbrenner-Kind Amendment.
  Mr. THORNBERRY. Mr. Chair, my amendment would require the President 
to create a charter that codifies the formal establishment of an 
interagency body to coordinate and deconflict full-spectrum military 
cyber operations for the Federal Government. It supports and 
complements initiatives already included in the National Defense 
Authorization Act to improve the efficient use of military cyber 
operations that support military missions and objectives. At the same 
time, I want to be clear what this amendment does not do. I want to 
assure those who may have been confused by the language that it does 
not authorize the interagency body to manage spectrum resources, 
whether federal, state, or non-governmental. Nor does it authorize the 
interagency body to impose obligations or other regulations on the 
private sector. It is based on research the Government Accountability 
Office carried out for the committee, and it will improve the ability 
of the Department to integrate cyber effects into its operational 
planning.
  The Acting CHAIR (Mr. Westmoreland). The question is on the 
amendments en bloc offered by the gentleman from California (Mr. 
McKeon).
  The en bloc amendments were agreed to.


             Amendments En Bloc No. 5 Offered by Mr. McKeon

  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, pursuant to H. Res. 661, I offer amendments 
en bloc.

        amendment no. 64 offered by mr. pierluisi of puerto rico

       At the end of subtitle B of title III, add the following 
     new section:

     SEC. 3__. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING DECONTAMINATION OF 
                   FORMER BOMBARDMENT AREA ON ISLAND OF CULEBRA, 
                   PUERTO RICO.

       (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following--
       (1) Section 2815 of the Ike Skelton National Defense 
     Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (Public Law 111 383; 
     124 Stat. 4464) requires the Secretary of Defense within 270 
     days of receiving a request from the government of Puerto 
     Rico, to conduct a study assessing the presence of unexploded 
     ordnance, and any threat to public health, public safety and 
     the environment posed by such unexploded ordnance, in the 
     portion of the former bombardment area on the island of 
     Culebra, Puerto Rico, that was transferred to the government 
     of Puerto Rico by quitclaim deed on August 11, 1982.
       (2) On April 25, 2011, the Governor of Puerto Rico formally 
     requested by letter that the Secretary of Defense commence 
     this study.
       (3) On May 25, 2011, the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense 
     for Installations and Environment acknowledged receipt of the 
     Governor's letter on behalf of the Secretary of Defense, and 
     affirmed that the Department of Defense would conduct the 
     study in accordance with such section 2815 and provide the 
     final report to Congress no later than 270 days from the date 
     of the Governor's letter.
       (4) January 20, 2012, marked the date 270 days after the 
     Governor's letter of April 25, 2011.
       (5) Section 204(c) of the Military Construction 
     Authorization Act, 1974 (Public Law 93 166; 87 Stat. 668) 
     stated that ``the present bombardment area on the island of 
     Culebra shall not be utilized for any purpose that would 
     require decontamination at the expense of the United 
     States.'' The Department of Defense has interpreted this 
     provision to constitute a permanent prohibition on the use of 
     Federal funds in the area of Culebra referenced in such 
     section to pay for decontamination and removal of unexploded 
     ordnance, although it may be warranted to protect public 
     health, public safety, and the environment.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the Secretary of Defense should expeditiously submit to 
     the Committees on Armed Services of the Senate and House of 
     Representatives the final report prepared in accordance with 
     section 2815 of the Ike Skelton National Defense 
     Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (Public Law 111 383; 
     124 Stat. 4464);
       (2) if that report indicates that decontamination and 
     removal of unexploded ordnance in the portion of the former 
     bombardment area on Culebra that was transferred to the 
     government of Puerto Rico by quitclaim deed on August 11, 
     1982, could be conducted at reasonable cost to the Federal 
     Government, it is appropriate for Congress to amend section 
     204(c) of the Military Construction Authorization Act, 1974 
     (Public Law 93 166; 87 Stat. 668) to authorize such 
     decontamination and removal of unexploded ordnance; and
       (3) any removal of unexploded ordnance should be 
     accomplished pursuant to the normal prioritization process 
     established by the Department of Defense under the Military 
     Munitions Response Program within the Defense Environmental 
     Restoration Program.

       (4) Any additional matters that the Comptroller General 
     determines will further inform the appropriate congressional

     National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 401a(7))) are kept 
     fully and currently informed of any intelligence or 
     intelligence-related activities undertaken in support of 
     military activities in cyberspace.''.


       amendment no. 101 offered by mr. pierluisi of puerto rico

       At the end of subtitle B of title X, add the following new 
     section:

     SEC. 1015. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING THE COUNTERDRUG 
                   TETHERED AEROSTAT RADAR SYSTEM PROGRAM.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) Since 1992, the Air Force has administered the 
     Counterdrug Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS) program, 
     which contributes to deterring and detecting smugglers moving 
     illicit drugs into the United States.
       (2) There are eight current tethered aerostat systems, 
     located at Yuma, Arizona, Fort Huachuca, Arizona, Deming, New 
     Mexico, Marfa, Texas, Eagle Pass, Texas, Rio Grande City, 
     Texas, Cudjoe Key, Florida, and Lajas, Puerto Rico.
       (3) Primary customers of the surveillance data from the 
     TARS program are the Department of Homeland Security, the 
     United States Northern Command, the United States Southern 
     Command, and the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
       (4) In the past two years, the radars in two of the eight 
     tethered aerostat systems have been destroyed in strong 
     weather conditions, namely the radar at Lajas, Puerto Rico, 
     which was destroyed in April 2011, and the radar at Marfa, 
     Texas, which was destroyed in February 2012.
       (5) The Air Force has indicated that it does not have 
     sufficient spare parts in its inventory to replace either of 
     these two radars or the funding necessary to purchase any new 
     radars. As a result, there are no current plans to resume 
     operations at Lajas, Puerto Rico or Marfa, Texas.
       (6) The loss of these two tethered aerostats systems 
     substantially degrades counterdrug capabilities in the 
     Caribbean corridor and along the Southwest border.
       (7) The loss of the tethered aerostat system in Lajas, 
     Puerto Rico, is particularly detrimental to the national 
     counterdrug mission. In Section 1023 of the National Defense 
     Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006 (Public Law 109 163), 
     Congress found that--
       (A) ``Drug traffickers use the Caribbean corridor to 
     smuggle narcotics to the United States via Puerto Rico and 
     the Dominican Republic. This route is ideal for drug 
     trafficking because of its geographic expanse, numerous law 
     enforcement jurisdictions, and fragmented investigative 
     efforts.''; and
       (B) ``The tethered aerostat system in Lajas, Puerto Rico, 
     contributes to deterring and detecting smugglers moving 
     illicit drugs into Puerto Rico. The aerostat's range and 
     operational capabilities allow it to provide surveillance 
     coverage of the eastern Caribbean corridor and the strategic 
     waterway between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, 
     known as the Mona Passage.''.
       (8) In such section 1023, Congress expressed that 
     ``Congress and the Department of Defense should fund the 
     Counter-Drug Tethered Aerostat program.''.
       (9) In recent years, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin 
     Islands have been increasingly impacted by the drug trade and 
     related violence. Both jurisdictions have homicide rates that 
     are roughly six times the national average and about three 
     times higher than any State, and many of these homicides are 
     linked to the drug trade.
       (10) The Department of Defense has raised questions as to 
     whether it should continue to administer the TARS program or, 
     alternatively, whether responsibility for this program should 
     be vested in the Department of Homeland Security.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--In light of the findings under 
     subsection (a), it is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) irrespective of whether the Department of Defense 
     continues to be responsible for the Counterdrug Tethered 
     Aerostat Radar System (TARS) program or such responsibility 
     is assigned to another agency, Congress and the responsible 
     agency should fund the TARS program; and
       (2) Congress and the responsible agency should take all 
     appropriate steps to ensure that the eight current tethered 
     aerostat systems are fully functional and, in particular, to 
     ensure that the TARS program is providing coverage to protect 
     jurisdictions of the United States in the Caribbean region, 
     as well as jurisdictions of the United States along the 
     United States-Mexico border and in the Florida Straits.


       amendment no. 112 offered by ms. richardson of california

       At the end of title X, add the following new section:

     SEC. 10__. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING UNITED STATES NORTHERN 
                   COMMAND PREPAREDNESS.

       It is the sense of the Congress that--
       (1) the United States Northern Command plays a crucial role 
     in providing additional response capability to State and 
     local governments in domestic disaster relief and consequence 
     management operations;

[[Page H3129]]

       (2) the United States Northern Command must continue to 
     build upon its current efforts to develop command strategies, 
     leadership training, and response plans to effectively work 
     with civil authorities when acting as the lead agency or a 
     supporting agency; and
       (3) the United States Northern Command should leverage 
     whenever possible training and management expertise that 
     resides within the Department of Defense, other Federal 
     agencies, State and local governments, and private sector 
     businesses and academic institutions to enhance--
       (A) its defense support to civil authorities and incidence 
     management missions;
       (B) relationships with other entities involved in disaster 
     response; and
       (C) its ability to respond to unforeseen events.
  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to House Resolution 661, the gentleman 
from California (Mr. McKeon) and the gentleman from Washington (Mr. 
Smith) each will control 10 minutes.
  The Chair recognizes the gentleman from California.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I urge the committee to adopt the 
amendments en bloc, all of which have been examined by both the 
majority and the minority.
  I reserve the balance of my time.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chair, I yield 1 minute to the 
gentlelady from New York (Ms. Velazquez).
  Ms. VELAZQUEZ. Mr. Chairman, I want to thank the ranking Democrat for 
his great leadership and allowing me to make this amendment in order as 
part of the en bloc.
  Mr. Chairman, it is incumbent on all of us to ensure that the brave 
men and women who serve our Nation abroad are treated with dignity.
  Sadly, in recent years, we have come to realize that too many of 
these young people endure abuse--not at the hands of the enemy, but 
from within their own unit. Last year, an Army private from my 
district, Danny Chen, lost his life after being hazed. Danny's loss has 
been a profound tragedy for his family, the Chinatown community, and 
all of New York.
  While many steps should have been taken to save Danny, it is almost 
certain if he had transferred to another unit, he would be with us 
today.

                              {time}  1100

  The amendment I am offering will ensure that each branch of the 
military has a process allowing hazing victims to swiftly transfer to 
another unit. This commonsense policy will prevent future tragedies.
  Mr. Chairman, all of us owe a great debt to the members of our 
military who risk so much for our Nation's freedom.
  Mr. McKEON. I continue to reserve the balance of my time.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. I yield back the balance of my time.
  Mr. McKEON. I yield back the balance of my time.
  Ms. RICHARDSON. Mr. Chair, I speak in support of the En Bloc 
Amendment #5 to H.R. 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2013, which includes two of my amendments.
  I thank Chairman McKeon, Ranking Member Smith, and their staffs for 
their work on this bill, their devotion to the men and women of the 
Armed Forces, and for accepting my amendments.
  Richardson Amendment No. 82 requires the Department of Defense to 
post on all its websites information on sexual assault prevention and 
response resources.
   In light of technology, many people, particularly service personnel 
receive the majority of their information via the Internet.
  Furthermore, online access to the needed information is particularly 
important because persons needing sexual assault resource information 
may be reluctant to seek information in a public setting without fear 
of losing privacy, or worse retaliation.
  Richardson Amendment #112 improves the Defense Authorization Act by 
increasing the effectiveness of the Northern Command (``NORTHCOM'') in 
fulfilling its critical mission of protecting the U.S. homeland in 
event of war and to provide support to local, state, and federal 
authorities in times of national emergency.
   This amendment was included in last year's National Defense 
Authorization Act and I am pleased that it is included this year also.
   The purpose for NORTHCOM's existence is to bring the capabilities 
and the resources of the U.S. military to the assistance of the 
American people during a catastrophic disaster.
   NORTHCOM leaders will be much more effective in saving lives, 
protecting assets, and enhancing resilience after a disaster has 
occurred if they are trained in the techniques of effective engagement 
with civilian leadership.
   My amendment ensures that such training will be available.
  Mr. QUIGLEY. Mr. Chair, I am offering a commonsense amendment with my 
friend from the other side of the aisle Mr. Hultgren from Illinois.
  Our amendment simply asks the Government Accountability Office to 
study the packaging procedures for hazardous materials by Department of 
Defense, and submit recommendations for improvements to Congress.
  Safe and timely shipment of supplies and equipment to our troops is 
vital to their safety and success.
  Unfortunately, due to the extremely complicated packaging 
requirements for hazardous materials, a large volume of needed supplies 
are often frustrated, or delayed.
  According to one recent study by the Air Force, 73 percent of the 
hazmat frustrated shipments had no shipping documents and were delayed 
11 15 days on average.
  These delayed shipments harm our troops and costs us billions.
  By reducing frustrated shipments by just 3 percent, DOD could save $2 
billion annually.
  Our amendment would require GAO to examine current shipping processes 
and identify improvements in order to expedite shipments, improve 
safety and reduce costs, and I encourage my colleagues to support it.
  Mr. WALSH of Illinois. Mr. Chair, the unemployment rate among post-9/
11 veterans is staggeringly high. Part of the problem is they routinely 
have to undergo lengthy certification processes for professions in 
which they are already qualified.
  Thankfully, Congress took ownership of this issue last year and 
developed a pilot program to streamline this process. This program, 
however, ignores industry-recognized certifications. These types of 
certifications are as important as licensing and are widely used by the 
manufacturing industry. They prove a job applicant's skills competence, 
experience, and knowledge.
  Many returning veterans have already obtained those skills and that 
experience in the military, which is why I'm introducing this 
amendment. The Walsh Amendment will expand the pilot program Congress 
authorized last year to include these industry-recognized 
certifications.
  It will enable our returning service men and women to find good-
paying, fulfilling employment that rewards their skill-level and 
experience.
  As the 28 Founding Principles remind us, a free people will not 
survive unless they stay strong.
  Mr. SESSIONS. Mr. Chair, thousands of our brave servicemen and women 
are returning from combat with severe cases of Traumatic Brain Injury 
(TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), resulting in an 
inability to hold a job, properly care for their families, or in some 
cases, to overcome suicidal tendencies. As a nation, we have the 
responsibility for their care and recovery.
  Currently, private healthcare providers across the United States are 
helping brain injury patients with new and innovative treatments that 
are not currently available or approved by the Department of Defense 
(DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Examples of these 
treatments include Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), flash doses of 
approved drugs, and small device implants that operate like brain 
pacemakers. While the Department of Defense is currently conducting 
their own studies on these already proven treatment methods, it will 
take five or more years to formally approve these treatments and make 
them accessible to our injured troops and veterans. If a treatment is 
good enough for private medicine, why is it not good enough for 
military medicine?
  In an effort to fix this delinquency I introduced the TBI Treatment 
Act (H.R. 396) in January 2011. Today I am proud to offer it as an 
amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 4310) with my 
friend and colleague from California, Congressman Mike Thompson. The 
TBI Treatment Act helps expedite these ground-breaking treatments to 
our nations' veterans and active duty soldiers suffering from TBI.
  The TBI Treatment Act establishes a 5-year ``pay-for-performance'' 
pilot program, not to exceed $10 million per year. Under my amendment, 
healthcare providers will treat active duty soldiers and veterans at no 
cost to the patient. The healthcare provider gets reimbursed from the 
DoD/VA respectively, only if the treatment is proven successful (based 
on independent pre- and post-treatment neuropsychological testing, 
accepted survey instruments, neurological imaging, or clinical 
examinations). Currently, soldiers are paying out-of-pocket for such 
important care. Lastly, treatments must be FDA-approved and approved by 
an institutional review board operating in accordance with regulations 
issued by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
  I ask that you join me in support of the Sessions-Thompson amendment 
to NDAA and

[[Page H3130]]

help deliver proven treatments to our soldiers and veterans suffering 
from Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI).
  Mr. McDERMOTT. Mr. Chair, I rise today to introduce my amendment to 
the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2013 to 
encourage and strengthen information and data sharing between the 
Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense related to 
environmental exposures of service members.
  Attributing a medical diagnosis or set of symptoms to an 
environmental exposure can be challenging, especially exposures that 
occurred years or decades in the past. Of course, this is a big concern 
and source of frustration for service members, veterans and their 
families. We have seen this challenge time and again in our Nation's 
history, whether it is understanding Agent Orange exposures or the Gulf 
War Syndrome.
  Today's service members may be exposed to hazards including air 
contamination resulting from burn pits, industrial toxic chemicals, 
chemical and biological warfare agents, toxic contaminants such those 
resulting from munitions containing depleted uranium, and others. The 
long-term health consequences of these hazardous environmental 
exposures remain uncertain.
  A recent Government Accountability Office report looked at the 
Pentagon's policies regarding environmental exposures and identified a 
need for a comprehensive plan on environmental exposures of service 
members, including recommendations for what the Defense Department can 
do to identify and address possible health risks resulting from 
environmental exposures.
  The NDAA for Fiscal Year 2013 under consideration by the House this 
week contains a provision requiring the Defense Department to develop a 
comprehensive plan on researching and documenting environmental 
exposure incidents to members of the Armed Forces. However, this 
provision does not explicitly connect this plan to the ongoing health 
information data sharing between the Department of Defense and the 
Department of Veterans Affairs.
  My amendment addresses this by having the Defense Department include 
in their plan a comprehensive status update on their sharing of 
environmental exposure data with the Secretary of Veterans Affairs. 
This information should be available to the VA to be examined over 
time, over decades even, to address exposure-related questions and 
identify possible origins and causes of disease. Data sharing should be 
done in a timely, ongoing, and updateable manner so that the Department 
of Veterans Affairs is alerted to hazardous exposure events and 
information on environmental exposure events can be updated when there 
is new information.
  Mr. Chair, the goal of my amendment is to enhance interdepartmental 
coordination and collaboration so that active duty members of the armed 
forces and veterans exposed to harmful toxins as a result of their 
military service get the answers, attention and treatment they and 
their families need.
  The Acting CHAIR. The question is on the amendments en bloc offered 
by the gentleman from California (Mr. McKeon).
  The en bloc amendments were agreed to.


             Amendments En Bloc No. 6 Offered by Mr. McKeon

  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, pursuant to H. Res. 661, I offer amendments

     offered by Mr. McKeon of California:


           Amendment No. 92 Offered by Mr. Johnson of Georgia

       At the end of title VII, add the following new section:

     SEC. 7__. CONGRESSIONAL SUPPORT FOR GREATER AWARENESS OF 
                   POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The brave men and women of the United States Armed 
     Forces, who proudly serve the United States, risk their lives 
     to protect the freedom of the United States and deserve the 
     investment of every possible resource to ensure their lasting 
     physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
       (2) More than 2,400,000 members of the Armed Forces have 
     deployed overseas as part of overseas contingency operations 
     since the events of September 11, 2001.
       (3) One in five members who have returned from deployment 
     reported symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
       (4) Just over \1/2\ of the members have sought treatment 
     for PTSD symptoms.
       (5) More than 90,000 members returning from deployment to 
     Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom are 
     clinically diagnosed with PTSD.
       (6) The Armed Forces have sustained an operational tempo 
     for a period of time unprecedented in the history of the 
     United States, with many members deploying multiple times, 
     placing them at high risk of PTSD.
       (7) Up to 10 percent of Operation Desert Storm veterans, 30 
     percent of Vietnam veterans, and 8 percent of the general 
     population of the United States suffer or have suffered from 
     PTSD.
       (8) Many cases of PTSD remain unreported, undiagnosed, and 
     untreated due to a lack of awareness about PTSD and the 
     persistent stigma associated with mental health issues.
       (9) PTSD significantly increases the risk of depression, 
     suicide, and drug- and alcohol-related disorders and deaths, 
     especially if left untreated.
       (10) The Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs have 
     made significant advances in the prevention, diagnosis, and 
     treatment of PTSD and the symptoms of PTSD, but many 
     challenges remain.
       (11) About \1/2\ of members and their spouses report they 
     are somewhat or not at all knowledgeable about the signs and 
     symptoms of PTSD.
       (b) Congressional Expression of Support.--In light of the 
     findings made in subsection (a), Congress--
       (1) supports the efforts of the Secretary of Veterans 
     Affairs and the Secretary of Defense to educate service 
     members, veterans, the families of service members and 
     veterans, and the public about the causes, symptoms, and 
     treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); and
       (2) supports the creation of an advisory commission on PTSD 
     to coordinate the efforts of the Department of Defense, 
     Department of Veterans Affairs, and other executive 
     departments and agencies for the prevention, diagnosis, and 
     treatment of PTSD.


           Amendment No. 96 Offered by Ms. Bass of California

       At the end of title VIII, add the following new section:

     SEC. 833. REQUIREMENT TO INCLUDE TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS IN 
                   PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENTS OF DEFENSE CONTRACTORS.

       (a) Performance Assessments To Include Evaluation of 
     Trafficking in Persons.--With respect to any performance 
     assessment of a defense contractor or subcontractor of such a 
     contractor, or any labor recruiter, broker, or other agent 
     used by the contractor or subcontractor, the Secretary of 
     Defense shall include an evaluation of trafficking in 
     persons.
       (b) Trafficking in Persons Defined.--In this section, the 
     term ``trafficking in persons'' has the meaning provided the 
     term ``severe form of trafficking in persons'' in section 103 
     of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (22 U.S.C. 
     7102).

     SEC. 3146. STUDY ON A MULTI-AGENCY GOVERNANCE MODEL FOR 
                   NATIONAL SECURITY LABORATORIES.

       (a) Independent Assessment.--
       (1) In general.--The Administrator for Nuclear Security 
     shall commission an independent assessment regarding the 
     transition of the national security laboratories to multi-
     agency federally funded research and development centers with 
     direct sustainment and sponsorship by multiple national 
     security agencies. The assessment shall be conducted by an 
     independent, non-governmental institute which is described in 
     section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and 
     exempt from tax under section 501(a) of such Code, and has 
     recognized credentials and expertise in national security 
     science and engineering laboratories and with ready access to 
     policy experts throughout the United States.
       (2) Background material.--The assessment shall leverage 
     previous studies, including--
       (A) the report published in 2009 by the Stimson Center 
     titled ``Leveraging Science for Security: A Strategy for the 
     Nuclear Weapons Laboratories in the 21st Century''; and
       (B) the Phase 1 report published in 2012 by the National 
     Academy of Sciences titled ``Managing for High-Quality 
     Science and Engineering at the NNSA National Security 
     laboratories''.
       (3) Elements.--The assessment conducted pursuant to 
     paragraph (1) shall include the following elements:
       (A) An assessment of a new governance structure that--
       (i) gives multiple national security agencies, including 
     the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland 
     Security, the Department of Energy, and the intelligence 
     community, direct sponsorship of the national security 
     laboratories as federally funded research and development 
     centers so that such agencies have more direct and rapid 
     access to the assets available at the laboratories and the 
     responsibility to provide sustainable support for the science 
     and technology needs of the agencies at the laboratories;
       (ii) reduces costs to the Federal Government for the use of 
     the resources of the laboratories, while enhancing the 
     stewardship of these national resources and maximizing their 
     service to the nation;
       (iii) enhances the overall quality of the scientific 
     research and engineering capability of the laboratories, 
     including their ability to recruit and retain top scientists 
     and engineers; and
       (iv) maintains as paramount the capabilities required to 
     support the nuclear stockpile stewardship and related nuclear 
     missions.
       (B) A recommendation as to which, if any, other 
     laboratories associated with any national security agency 
     should be included in the new governance structure.
       (C) Options for implementing the new governance structure 
     that minimize disruption of performance and costs to the 
     government while rapidly achieving anticipated gains.
       (D) Legislative changes and executive actions that would 
     need to be made in order to implement the new governance 
     structure.
       (b) Report.--
       (1) In general.--Not later than January 1, 2014, the 
     designated private entity shall submit to the Administrator 
     and the congressional defense committees a report that 
     contains the findings of the assessment.
       (2) Form.--The report under paragraph (1) shall be 
     submitted in unclassified form, but may include a classified 
     annex.
       (c) Definition.--In this section, the term ``national 
     security laboratory'' has the meaning given that term in 
     section 3281 of the National Nuclear Security Administration 
     Act (50 U.S.C. 2471).

       Strike section 3503.


            Amendment No. 141 Offered by Mr. Young of Alaska

       At the end of title XXXV, add the following new section:

     SEC. 35__. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE NATIONAL STRATEGIC PORTS 
                   STUDY AND COMPTROLLER GENERAL STUDIES AND 
                   REPORTS ON STRATEGIC PORTS.

       (a) Sense of Congress on Completion of DOD Report.--It is 
     the sense of Congress that the Secretary of Defense should 
     expedite completion of the study of strategic ports in the 
     United States called for in the conference report to 
     accompany the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
     Year 2012 (Conference Report 112 329) so that it can be 
     submitted to Congress before September 30, 2012.
       (b) Submission of Report to Comptroller General.--In 
     addition to submitting the report referred to in subsection 
     (a) to Congress, the Secretary of Defense shall submit the 
     report to the Comptroller General of the United States for 
     consideration under subsection (c).
       (c) Comptroller General Studies and Reports on Strategic 
     Ports.--
       (1) Comptroller general review.--Not later than 90 days 
     after receipt of the report referred to in subsection (a), 
     the Comptroller General shall conduct an assessment of the 
     report and submit to the congressional defense committees a 
     report of such assessment.
       (2) Comptroller general study and report.--Not later than 
     270 days after the enactment of this Act, the Comptroller 
     General of the United States shall conduct a study of the 
     Department of Defense's programs and efforts related to the 
     state of strategic ports with respect to the Department's 
     operational and readiness requirements, and report to the 
     congressional defense committees on the findings of such 
     study. The report should include an assessment of--
       (A) the extent to which the facilities at strategic ports 
     meet the Department of Defense's requirements;
       (B) the extent to which the Department has identified gaps 
     in the ability of existing strategic ports to meet its needs 
     and identified and undertaken efforts to address any gaps; 
     and
       (C) the Department's ability to oversee, coordinate, and 
     provide security for military deployments through strategic 
     ports.
       (d) Strategic Seaport Defined.--In this section, the term 
     ``strategic port'' means a United States port designated by 
     the Secretary of Defense as a significant transportation hub 
     important to the readiness and cargo throughput capacity of 
     the Department of Defense.
  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to House Resolution 661, the gentleman 
from California (Mr. McKeon) and the gentleman from Washington (Mr. 
Smith) each will control 10 minutes.
  The Chair recognizes the gentleman from California.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I urge the committee to adopt the 
amendments en bloc, all of which have been considered by both the 
majority and the minority.
  I yield 1 minute to the gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. 
Fitzpatrick), my friend and colleague.
  Mr. FITZPATRICK. Mr. Chairman, I rise today to offer an amendment 
that will help get our Nation's veterans back to work.
  According to a Department of Labor report from June of 2011, 1 
million veterans were unemployed. The brave men and women who serve and 
have served our great Nation deserve every effort from this body to 
give them the tools they need to provide for themselves and their 
families.
  The amendment I have offered today to the National Defense 
Authorization Act would help provide veterans with opportunities by 
giving a leg up to veteran-owned small businesses. Our government has 
in place policies that give businesses owned by certain classes of 
individuals an advantage in receiving government contracts, and this 
amendment does nothing to change that.
  My amendment simply levels the playing field by giving veterans and 
veteran-owned small businesses the exact same preference that is being 
given to others. It also preserves the ability to give service-disabled 
veteran-owned businesses a preference above all others. This is the 
exact same amendment that was agreed to by voice vote during the debate 
on last year's Military Construction and Veterans Affairs 
appropriations bill.
  I appreciate the continued strong bipartisan support for this policy. 
I think that it shows that we, as a Congress, are united in supporting 
employment and business opportunities for the men

[[Page H3135]]

and women who have served in our military.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield 1 minute to the 
gentleman from Rhode Island (Mr. Cicilline).
  Mr. CICILLINE. I thank the gentleman for yielding.
  Mr. Chairman, I rise in support of two amendments I am offering in 
this bloc, both of which seek to ensure Pakistan demonstrates its 
commitment to counterterrorism operations and the dismantling of 
improvised explosive device networks.
  According to news reports, the majority of IEDs in Afghanistan share 
a common ingredient, calcium ammonium nitrate, which is illegal in 
Afghanistan but completely legal in Pakistan. When asked about what the 
Pentagon is doing to put pressure on Pakistan's distribution network of 
ammonium nitrate at his Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, 
Secretary Panetta said:

       We've urged them, the Pakistanis, to take steps. In some 
     cases, they have. In some cases, they wind up there too late. 
     But we're continuing to impress upon them that they have got 
     to be part of the answer to dealing with this issue.

  That's why I have offered amendment 121, which would tie the funding 
of the Pakistan counterinsurgency fund to a certification requirement 
by the Secretary of Defense, in consultation with the Secretary of 
State, that Pakistan is making significant effort in implementing a 
strategy to counter improvised explosive devices, IEDs. Too many 
American soldiers have been killed or wounded as a result of IEDs.
  The Acting CHAIR. The time of the gentleman has expired.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. I yield the gentleman from Rhode Island an 
additional 20 seconds.
  Mr. CICILLINE. I thank the gentleman.
  We are also considering amendment 118 in this bloc. This amendment 
would require that, before providing reimbursement to Pakistan for its 
efforts in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, the Secretary of 
Defense must certify Pakistan is taking ``demonstrable steps'' to 
support counterterrorism operations against terrorist organizations, 
dismantle IED networks, prevent the proliferation of nuclear-related 
material and expertise, and issue visas in a timely manner for United 
States Government personnel supporting counterterrorism efforts and 
assistance programs in Pakistan.
  These are commonsense amendments.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield 2 minutes to the gentleman from 
Oklahoma (Mr. Lankford), my friend and colleague.
  Mr. LANKFORD. I rise in support today of a simple way to be able to 
fix a problem that we have been trying to pursue for years on it.
  Despite a zero-tolerance policy, the Commission on Wartime 
Contracting released their final report last November, highlighting 
contractors and subcontractors in Iraq and Afghanistan who have engaged 
in the practice of human trafficking. Despite numerous laws, numerous 
policies and attempts to do this, we have not been able to resolve 
this. Today I am putting forward an amendment to try to resolve this 
issue.
  According to various accounts before my subcommittee, third-country 
nationals are hired by prime and subprime contractors holding U.S. 
Government contracts. They are recruited by brokers who lure them into 
these positions under false pretenses. Many arrive having been robbed 
of wages, injured without compensation, subjected to sexual assaults, 
or held in deplorable conditions resembling indentured servitude by 
their subcontractor bosses. Using taxpayer bosses to support these 
conditions is immoral, inappropriate, and un-American. This is 
something we have worked to fix.
  This amendment brings clarity to the issues to make sure it's 
absolutely clear to these subcontractors, which are often foreign 
companies that bring in laborers to work for our military, that we 
never, ever violate our basic American principle of life, liberty, and 
the pursuit of happiness.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chair, I yield 1 minute to the 
gentlelady from California (Ms. Richardson).
  Ms. RICHARDSON. I thank the gentleman for allowing me to speak in 
support of the Young-Richardson amendment, No. 141, that we have before 
us. I would like to thank Chairman McKeon and also Ranking Member Smith 
and their staff for all of their hard work on this very important bill.
  The Young-Richardson amendment calls for the expedited completion of 
the study of the Nation's strategic ports called for in the National 
Defense Authorization Act. As a representative of a district that 
serves the largest port complex in the Nation and the fifth largest in 
the world, it is important that we always remember that in times of 
war, the role of ports is to protect our forts.
  This amendment directs the Department of Defense to provide a copy of 
the report to the GAO for additional review of the extent to which the 
facilities and infrastructure serving our strategic seaports meet the 
demands of the Department of Defense. The completion of this report is 
vital in its assessment of the structural integrity, the deficiencies 
and, most importantly, the report will identify potential funding 
sources to undertake these needed improvements.
  I thank the House Armed Services Committee for including this Young-
Richardson amendment in the en bloc, and I also applaud Mr. Young on 
his long-standing leadership.
  The Acting CHAIR. The time of the gentlewoman has expired.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. I yield the gentlelady from California an 
additional 15 seconds.
  Ms. RICHARDSON. I would like to thank the ranking member, Mr. Smith, 
and Chairman McKeon for including this amendment en bloc.
  Mr. McKEON. I reserve the balance of my time.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield back the balance of my 
time.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield back the balance of my time.
  Mr. GINGREY of Georgia. Mr. Chair, I rise in strong support of the 
Young Amendment #141 to H.R. 4310 that was included as part of En Bloc 
Amendment #6. I commend my colleague from Alaska for his leadership on 
this issue, and like him, I agree that the Secretary of Defense should 
expedite completion of the study of our nation's strategic ports in 
last year's National Defense Authorization Act.
  One of the ports that is included in this study is the Port of 
Savannah in my home State of Georgia. The Port of Savannah is the 
nation's fastest- growing and fourth-busiest port. It serves as the 
most important infrastructure target in Georgia and the single-largest 
economic development issue for the state.
  The economic impact that this port has is astounding. The Port of 
Savannah alone accounted for $9.5 billion in shipments to the Metro 
Atlanta region in 2011. Furthermore, the effect of both the Port of 
Savannah and the Port of Brunswick have on Georgia's economy are 
staggering. According to a recent University of Georgia study, these 
two ports support more than 350,000 jobs--which is 1 out of every 12 
jobs across the state.
  Mr. Chair, simply put, the Port of Savannah has is critical for 
economic development, not only in my home state, but throughout the 
southeast region. I am pleased that it was included on the list to 
study by DoD, and I believe this study needs to be completed this 
fiscal year.
  I urge my colleagues to support the Young Amendment.
  Ms. McCOLLUM. Mr. Chair, over the past four years, the Department of 
Defense has spent $1.55 billion for its 150 military bands and more 
than 5,000 full-time, professional military musicians. In FY 2013, from 
funds authorized in this bill, the Pentagon plans to spend another $388 
million for military bands.
  My amendment is very simple. It caps spending on military bands in 
this bill at $200 million.
  I was raised in a military family, Mr. Chair, and I understand the 
important role that bands have in our nation's proud military 
tradition. That's why my amendment provides $200 million for the 
Pentagon to continue this tradition. But as families and communities 
across this country see critical services reduced or eliminated because 
of Republican budget cuts, I think it's time we ask the Pentagon to 
make a small sacrifice in its musical budget.
  Just last week, 218 of my Republican colleagues voted to eliminate 
health coverage for at least 300,000 children by cutting the Children's 
Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Today, I urge my colleagues to cut 
funding for military bands with the same sense of urgency that they cut 
care for poor kids.
  In passing H.R. 5652, the Sequester Replacement Reconciliation Act of 
2012, House Republicans voted to shield the Pentagon from the automatic 
spending cuts agreed to in the Budget Control Act. They did it by 
cutting

[[Page H3136]]

over $300 billion from domestic programs for our most vulnerable 
citizens.
  In order to protect the Pentagon from sequestration--including 
military bands--and actually increase defense spending, the House voted 
to:
   Cut nutrition assistance for low-income seniors, people with 
disabilities, and families.
   Eliminate funding for Meals On Wheels for seniors.
   Slash child care services for working parents, and protective 
services for abused children.
   Deny school lunches to more than 200,000 children.
   Repeal the Prevention and Public Health Fund, which supports breast 
cancer screenings for women, immunizations for children, and community 
education efforts.
   Repeal funding for state health insurance exchanges, which will make 
it easier for families to find affordable health insurance.
  Those were cuts that will have a real, severe impact on families in 
Minnesota and throughout the United States.
  For my 218 Republican colleagues who voted last week to replace the 
defense sequester cuts by slashing domestic programs, this should be an 
easy vote.
  Surely, no one in this body can claim that funding for the Air Force 
Wild Blue Country Band, or the Navy Crescent Brass Quintet Band, or the 
Army String Band, or the Navy Show band, or the Air Force Singing 
Sergeants is more important than funding programs critical to our 
nation's children, seniors, and working families.
  One of our primary duties as Members of Congress is to provide the 
resources and policy guidance necessary to protect our nation. We must 
make certain that every dollar in this bill contributes to our national 
defense.
  In a fiscal crisis, $200 million must be enough for the Department of 
Defense to continue its time-honored musical tradition.
  If House Republicans are asking low income families, seniors, and 
disabled Americans to go without the services they rely on, it's time 
the Pentagon makes do with $200 million for military bands.
  It's time we ask the Army to do with fewer than 100 bands.
  It's time we ask the Air Force to scale back its Country Western 
band.
  It's time we ask the Pentagon to share some of the sacrifice that 
American families are being asked to bear.
  And with $200 million, the military music will surely continue to 
grace our nation's parades and ceremonies, and provide comfort to our 
military families at funerals.
  Mr. Chair, this exact amendment was adopted unanimously by voice vote 
and passed by the full House of Representatives in last year's National 
Defense Authorization bill, H.R. 1540. Why? Because in this time of 
fiscal crisis and deep cuts to discretionary spending, it makes no 
sense to borrow nearly $400 million from Communist China to pay for 
military bands.
  I urge my colleagues to support this amendment.
  Mr. GENE GREEN of Texas. Mr. Chair, as one of the cosponsors, I rise 
in strong support of Amendment #108. This amendment would strike 
Section 3503 of the legislation, which allows the Maritime 
Administration to exempt itself from the Federal Acquisition 
Regulations, the Competition in Contracting Act and Federal Property 
Management laws, and thus dispose of obsolete vessels in the National 
Defense Reserve Fleet using less than full and open competition and a 
transparent process.
  This amendment should be adopted because it will help ensure 
competition in contracting for ship disposal by the Maritime 
Administration. If this amendment is not adopted, MARAD will be 
permitted to enter into contracts to dispose of their ships without 
competition or transparency. This puts American jobs and industry at 
risk.
  MARAD has expressed an interest in sending decommissioned ships to 
China to be scrapped. China wants this steel because it is stronger and 
better than what they produce. This will result in us buying inferior 
steel from China and China buying our steel at depressed rates because 
of no competition. Our firms have to be able to compete on an equal 
playing field and our own government should be encouraging it. We 
should be encouraging the recycling of superior American made steel to 
be used here.
  Instead, Section 3503 stacks the deck against competition and against 
domestic firms. Why should we give China superior products in a 
sweetheart deal? If they want better steel they can pay fair market 
price or make it themselves.
  President Obama in his memorandum for the Heads of the Executive 
Departments and Agencies from March 2009, on Government Contracting, 
said that, ``the Federal Government has an overriding obligation to 
American taxpayers. It should perform its function efficiently and 
effectively while ensuring that its actions result in the best value 
for taxpayers . . . Excessive reliance by agencies on sole source 
contracts . . . creates a risk that taxpayer funds will be spent on 
contracts that are wasteful, inefficient, subject to misuse or 
otherwise not well designed to serve the needs of the Federal 
Government of the interest of the American taxpayer.''
  The President was right and this amendment holds MARAD to this 
standard.
  Mr. CONNOLLY of Virginia. Mr. Chair, I rise to support the bipartisan 
Lankford/Connolly amendment to combat human trafficking by federal 
subcontractors. Mr. Lankford, Mr. Cummings, Mr. Issa and I worked with 
Senators Blumenthal, Franken, Collins, and others to develop the 
bicameral legislation that is the basis of this amendment. It will 
combat human trafficking and has the support of both federal 
contractors and human rights advocates. The Subcommittee on Technology 
and Procurement, of which Mr. Lankford and I are Chairman and Ranking 
Member, respectively, held two hearings on human trafficking by federal 
contractors. We heard testimony from human rights advocates that 
trafficking is widespread and rarely if ever punished. Typically 
logistics subcontractors, generally based in a country other than the 
United States, hire labor recruiters who mislead Third Country National 
(TCN) laborers into what can best be described as human slavery. The 
victims of human trafficking frequently are victims of both labor and 
sexual exploitation. Their oppressors generally steal passports, 
withhold pay, and frequently fail to return them to their home country 
even when their work is complete. Sadly, these abuses have occurred on 
federal DOD, Department of State, and USAID projects.
  We have succeeding in motivating agencies to expand efforts to combat 
trafficking. The Department of State is conducting more on-site 
investigations to identify indices of trafficking, such as sub-human 
housing conditions, stolen passports, and withheld wages. Secretary 
Clinton issued a memo reminding State Department staff about the 
federal government's zero tolerance policy with respect to trafficking, 
which in the past was enforced in the breach. In the House and Senate 
we crafted bipartisan legislation to address the trafficking problems 
identified in the Subcommittee. This legislation will:
  Requires every contract to have a clause allowing contract 
termination in the event of human trafficking and appropriate penalties 
for contractors who engage in trafficking.
  Lists indices of trafficking, such as revocation of passports and 
high recruiting fees, which require agency investigations and 
corrective action.
  Requires large overseas contracts to have compliance plans to prevent 
trafficking.
  Requires agency investigation of trafficking complaints or evidence 
of trafficking.
  Expands fraud in foreign labor contracting penalties to work 
performed outside of the US on federal contracts.
  These provisions directly address real world challenges in 
prosecuting trafficking that we learned about in our subcommittee's 
hearing. In addition to improving agency efforts to combat trafficking, 
this legislation is necessary to ensure federal dollars never are used 
to support human slavery.
  I hope my colleagues will join the Chairman and Ranking Member in 
voting for this amendment and greatly appreciate the support of Lynn 
Williams and other HASC staff. As is the Committee's standard practice, 
HASC has worked in a collaborative, bipartisan manner to support this 
amendment, and I greatly appreciate the staff's professionalism and the 
Chairman and Ranking Members' bipartisan leadership of the committee.
  The Acting CHAIR. The question is on the amendments en bloc offered 
by the gentleman from California (Mr. McKeon).
  The en bloc amendments were agreed to.


                Amendment No. 59 Offered by Mr. Rehberg

  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to House Resolution 661, the gentleman 
from Montana (Mr. Rehberg) and a Member opposed each will control 5 
minutes.

                              {time}  1110

  Mr. REHBERG. Mr. Chairman, I yield myself 3 minutes.
  Mr. Chairman, I have the honor to represent the city of Great Falls, 
home to Malmstrom Air Force Base and the 341st ICBM Missile Wing. The 
men and women stationed there are the best in the world. They 
understand the critical role they play in America's security. They also 
understand the vital role they have in the Great Falls community and 
the economy.
  Unfortunately, there are those that see their contributions as 
obsolete. They watched the Cold War end and failed to grasp that our 
unsurmountable nuclear deterrent is what is keeping the peace that we 
all cherish.
  President Obama promised deep and reckless cuts to our nuclear 
arsenal. It's been reported that the National Security Council has 
developed a plan to cut our nuclear force by up to 80 percent, slashing 
it to a level not seen since the early 1950s. To that end, the New 
START Treaty with Russia will go down as one of the worst, most one-
sided deals in our country's history. If two countries sign a nuclear 
arms reduction treaty, shouldn't both sides have to reduce their 
nuclear arms to meet agreed-upon targets?
  That's not what happened. The Russians, it turns out, were already 
well under the quota for nuclear weapons established by the treaty. So 
the first thing they did was increase their nuclear warheads to above 
the treaty limit. You heard that right: Russia increased the number of 
warheads they had before reducing them. And as the United States 
unilaterally disarms, the primary mission at Malmstrom in Great Falls 
is at risk.
  The administration refuses to reveal its reduction plans, but one 
proposal that has surfaced is to simply eliminate an entire wing of the 
ICBM missiles like the ones in Great Falls. The President promises that 
won't happen, just like he promised New START was a good deal. And some 
of the same Senators who rubber-stamped the New START Treaty are buying 
into those empty promises again. They assure us that our nuclear triad 
is safe, and so is Malmstrom. I would think more skepticism is in 
order.
  Just a few weeks ago, President Obama was caught on an open mike 
promising the Russians that he would have more flexibility once he 
didn't need to worry about reelection. Given recent history and the New 
START Treaty, it's hard to imagine how much worse it could get, but I'm 
not willing to wait around and find out.
  This amendment is simple. It says that the United States shouldn't be 
unilaterally disarming itself. I hope my colleagues join me in passing 
this amendment which will help clean up the mess the President and the 
Senate got us into.
  I reserve the balance of my time.
  Mr. LARSEN of Washington. I claim time in opposition.
  The Acting CHAIR. The gentleman is recognized for 5 minutes.
  Mr. LARSEN of Washington. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I 
may consume.
  Mr. Speaker, I'm going to ask my colleagues to oppose this amendment. 
The amendment puts constraints that would recklessly weaken our 
national security by preventing nuclear reductions that the U.S. and 
Russia have already agreed to. The provision would de facto prevent any 
reduction in the number of nuclear delivery vehicles because Russia is 
already below the New START limits and does not need to make further 
reductions to comply with the treaty. Thus, it would essentially 
require Russia to build up its arsenal to allow the U.S. to implement 
its New START obligations. In other words, it would fully stop the 
implementation of the mutually agreed upon treaty in its tracks. This 
is highly destabilizing.
  It would also risk terminating the treaty if the U.S. cannot comply 
with its obligations. Even during the Cold War, the U.S. negotiated 
with Russia to limit the number of nuclear weapons. Without New START, 
the U.S. would lose all verification rights, thereby losing insight 
into Russia's nuclear arsenal. These limitations would require the U.S. 
to maintain the current numbers of nuclear delivery vehicles and 
placing artificial limits on our arsenal and make reductions subject to 
Russian actions, in effect, outsourcing national security to Russia.
  Mr. Chairman, I would ask my colleagues to consider these facts when 
they consider voting on this amendment. I would ask my colleagues to 
oppose this amendment.
  I reserve the balance of my time.
  Mr. REHBERG. I yield the balance of my time to the gentlewoman from 
Wyoming (Mrs. Lummis).
  The Acting CHAIR. The gentlewoman is recognized for 2\1/2\ minutes.
  Mrs. LUMMIS. I want to thank the gentleman from Montana for working 
with me on this amendment, which will prevent the United States from 
unilaterally disarming its nuclear arsenal.
  The brave men and women of the 90th Missile Wing in Cheyenne, 
Wyoming, work tirelessly in keeping our land-based nuclear missiles on 
nearly 100 percent alert. This work is tremendously important because 
the notion that the U.S., by unilaterally disarming itself, will 
somehow convince aggressors to follow suit is dangerous thinking. It is 
precisely this kind of thinking that seeped into the New START Treaty.
  I'm still trying to determine what the U.S. got out of the deal. We 
all know what Russia got. Russia got to bind us to a cap on our nuclear 
arsenal. But Russia can still expand its strategic arsenal. Russia can 
stack their bombers to the hilt with warheads and call it a single-
delivery vehicle. Russia can deploy an unlimited number of tactical 
nuclear weapons that are constantly pointed at our allies in Europe. 
Russia can develop new long-range nuclear-tipped cruise missiles. 
That's right, new nuclear platforms, including those capable of 
reaching the United States from the air and sea, don't ``count'' under 
the New START Treaty. The only things that ``count'' under the New 
START Treaty are the platforms on which the United States has a 
strategic advantage.
  New START is a terrible deal for the United States--a mess that we're 
trying to clean up with our amendment. If the United States keeps 
making bad deals like this, we risk losing the faith of our allies who 
rely on our nuclear umbrella. Those who have been content with our 
protection might think twice about whether it might be in their 
interest to have nuclear arms of their own. Nations who a few years ago 
would never imagine being able to compete with the United States might 
start thinking about trying to compete with us.
  This is the reality. This is the danger of unilateral disarmament. 
And this is

[[Page H3138]]

why you should vote for our amendment.
  I thank, again, the gentleman from Montana for working with us on 
this.
  The Acting CHAIR. The time of the gentlewoman has expired.
  Mr. LARSEN of Washington. I yield 2 minutes to the gentleman from New 
Jersey (Mr. Andrews).
  (Mr. ANDREWS asked and was given permission to revise and extend his 
remarks.)
  Mr. ANDREWS. I think I have finally found the content of the secret 
agreement between the President and the Russians we keep hearing about. 
I want to read you what I have heard:

       My goal is the total elimination of nuclear weapons. If we 
     can get these fellows, the Russians, back to the table and 
     get them to start down that road of mutual reduction, then 
     they might find out what common sense it would mean to 
     eliminate them.

  These are the secret words that were said. But they weren't said by 
Barack Obama. They were said by Ronald Reagan in 1983.
  The careful elimination of nuclear weapons has been a bipartisan and 
wise goal of this country for three decades. We have the capability to 
destroy the world 24 times over. We are rationally and systematically 
negotiating with Russia to try to reduce the risk of accident, theft, 
or rogue-state behavior while maintaining our sacred sovereign duty to 
defend ourselves at all times.
  This amendment interferes with that wise and bipartisan process. It 
sends this President, or any President, into negotiations with a set of 
preconceived notions which limit his or her ability to make the best 
deal on behalf of the United States--a deal which, of course, would 
have to be ratified by the United States Senate if it were to make 
material changes in the START agreement.
  From Reagan through Bush through Clinton through George W. Bush and 
now through President Obama, a wise bipartisan plan to protect our 
country but reduce the risk of nuclear holocaust. This amendment stands 
in the way of that wise bipartisan tradition--and it should be 
defeated.
  Mr. LARSEN of Washington. I would just ask my colleagues to oppose 
this amendment. We would ask our colleagues here in the House to oppose 
it.
  I yield back the balance of my time.
  The Acting CHAIR. The question is on the amendment offered by the 
gentleman from Montana (Mr. Rehberg).
  The question was taken; and the Acting Chair announced that the noes 
appeared to have it.
  Mr. REHBERG. Mr. Chair, I demand a recorded vote.
  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to clause 6 of rule XVIII, further 
proceedings on the amendment offered by the gentleman from Montana will 
be postponed.

                 Amendment No. 77 Offered by Mr. Hunter

  The Acting CHAIR. It is now in order to consider amendment No. 77 
printed in House Report 112 485.
  Mr. HUNTER. Mr. Chairman, I have an amendment at the desk.
  The Acting CHAIR. The Clerk will designate the amendment.
  The text of the amendment is as follows:

       At the end of subtitle F of title V, add the following new 
     section:

     SEC. 5__. REPORT ON NAVY REVIEW, FINDINGS, AND ACTIONS 
                   PERTAINING TO MEDAL OF HONOR NOMINATION OF 
                   MARINE CORPS SERGEANT RAFAEL PERALTA.

       Not later than 30 days after the date of the enactment of 
     this Act, the Secretary of the Navy shall submit to the 
     Committees on Armed Services of the Senate and House of 
     Representatives a report describing the Navy review, 
     findings, and actions pertaining to the Medal of Honor 
     nomination of Marine Corps Sergeant Rafael Peralta. The 
     report shall account for all evidence submitted with regard 
     to the case.

  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to House Resolution 661, the gentleman 
from California (Mr. Hunter) and a Member opposed each will control 5 
minutes.
  The Chair recognizes the gentleman from California.
  Mr. HUNTER. Mr. Chairman, the war in Iraq has come to a close. And 
while the Iraq mission is over, countless examples of combat heroism 
performed by our military over nearly a decade of operations are both 
an inspiration and a reminder of the service and sacrifice of so many 
marines, sailors, soldiers, and airmen.
  For Iraq, there have been hundreds of Silver Stars awarded. There 
have been 21 Navy Crosses and 15 Distinguished Service Crosses. The 
Nation's highest award for combat valor--the Medal of Honor--was 
presented on only four occasions. Each was awarded posthumously, three 
for action that involved smothering a grenade to save others.
  One marine, Sergeant Rafael Peralta, who was posthumously nominated 
for the Medal of Honor deserves to be part of this distinguished group 
of heroes. But he's not. He was denied that honor when his nomination 
was wrongly downgraded to the Navy Cross.
  The incident leading to the nomination occurred in 2004 during combat 
in Fallujah, Iraq. He and several marines entered a room and came into 
immediate contact with the enemy. A firefight erupted, and Peralta was 
hit in the back of the head with a fragment of a ricocheted bullet. 
While Peralta was on the floor, a grenade was thrown and landed within 
his reach. He scooped up the grenade and pulled it into his body, 
saving the lives of his fellow marines.
  Seven marines confirmed his actions. So did the medical evidence. And 
the Marine Corps, after conducting its own review, nominated Peralta 
for the Medal of Honor. The Navy agreed with the Marine Corps and sent 
the nomination to former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. That's 
where the nomination was downgraded, 4 years after Peralta's death.
  Secretary Gates came to this conclusion after taking the 
unprecedented step of forming a scientific panel to review the 
evidence. Contrary to the eyewitness accounts, the evidence submitted, 
and the recommendation of the Marine Corps and the Navy, Secretary 
Gates determined Peralta could not have consciously pulled the grenade 
to his body. And if he did, it was involuntary, according to Secretary 
Gates. His judgment also concluded that the grenade detonated 1 to 3 
feet from Peralta's left knee, not underneath his body.
  Yet the Navy Cross citation reads and exactly parallels the Medal of 
Honor citation:

       Without hesitation and with complete disregard for his own 
     personal safety, Sergeant Peralta reached out and pulled the 
     grenade to his body, absorbing the brunt of the blast and 
     shielding his fellow marines only feet away.

  That's an indisputable statement. And the Navy Cross citation was 
awarded. According to this citation, Peralta did exactly what Secretary 
Gates said he didn't or couldn't have done. Now, more than 8 years 
after Peralta's death, new evidence is currently under review by the 
Navy, evidence found by my office and by Joe Casper on my staff, in 
particular, along with the History Channel--evidence that the Navy 
never even saw. We gave this evidence to the Navy, and it validates the 
eyewitness accounts that led to the Medal of Honor nomination.
  I also have a report from a renowned forensic pathologist. The 
report, which accounts for the condition of the body armor, autopsy 
findings, and the pathologist's own experience with head wounds, 
concludes Peralta was not immediately incapacitated by the brain injury 
and, in fact, reached for the grenade and pulled it under his body. I 
have seen this video evidence.
  Earlier this year, the Navy took a major step in recognizing Sergeant 
Peralta and named a destroyer in his honor--a great honor. The Navy and 
Secretary Ray Mabus in particular deserve to be commended for their 
decision, as well as their commitment to honoring Sergeant Peralta's 
sacrifice.
  The new evidence was submitted to the Navy months ago, and I did 
receive confirmation from Secretary Mabus that the evidence is being 
reviewed in the hope of resubmitting the Medal of Honor nomination. And 
based on the evidence, I'm confident in the Navy's ability to make the 
right decision.
  But even so, this process doesn't stop with the Navy. Resubmitting 
the nomination will still require the approval of the Secretary of 
Defense. And knowing the extent of the information before the Navy, 
prompting its initial decision and any subsequent decision will be 
valuable to ensuring the error in judgment that denied Peralta the 
Medal of Honor is corrected once and for all.
  I know that I speak for my colleagues in saying we look forward to 
the Navy's decision.

  And with that, I yield back the balance of my time.

                                              San Antonio, TX,

                                                 January 27, 2010.
     Re: Medal of Honor Recommendation: Case of Sgt. Rafael 
         Peralta.

     George M. Sabga, Jr.,
     Attorney at Law,
     San Diego. CA.
       Dear Mr. Sabga: As requested, I have reviewed the following 
     materials in regard to the death of Sgt. Peralta:
       1. Investigative Documents generated by the Marine Corp 
     including witness interviews and floor plans
       2. the opinions of the neurologist and two neurosurgeons
       3. photographs of the scene
       4. the autopsy report: photographs of the injuries: x-rays 
     of the body and the opinion of the forensic pathologist
       On November 15th, 2004, Sgt. Rafael Peralta, deployed to 
     Iraq as a Scout Team Leader assigned to Company A, 1st 
     Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, along with his team was 
     ordered to clear houses in the Battle of Fallujah. After 
     clearing three houses, he entered a fourth house with his 
     team. The first two rooms were empty. As Peralta opened the 
     third door, insurgents in the room opened fire on the 
     marines. Sgt. Peralta, hit in the head by friendly fire, 
     dropped to the floor, severely wounded. The insurgents then 
     threw a grenade at the marines, with the grenade coming to 
     rest near Sgt. Peralta. The other marines in the room with 
     Sgt. Peralta were unable to get out. Despite his wounds. Sgt. 
     Peralta was described as reaching for the grenade and pulling 
     it under his body. absorbing the majority of the lethal blast 
     and shrapnel. The Sgt. died at the scene.
       Eleven witnesses to the circumstances of Sgt. Peralta's 
     death were interviewed. Four saw Sgt. Peralta gather the 
     grenade to himself with his right arm: a fifth stated he used 
     his left arm and two didn't mention which arm was used. Two 
     stated the Sgt. had his left cheek on the ground and three 
     that he had his right cheek. The divergence in the 
     descriptions as to which arm was used and which way the head 
     was facing is reassuring as such contradictions are what one 
     normally expects in stressful situations such as this. What 
     is most significant. however, is that seven witnesses state 
     that they saw him reach for the grenade and pull it to 
     himself.
       Examination of photographs and X-rays of Sgt. Peralta's 
     body reveal four grenade fragments in the left side of the 
     head without penetration into the cranial cavity. In 
     addition, there are multiple grenade fragment wounds of the 
     left shoulder: left upper arm, forearm and hand; right 
     forearm and hand, and the left thigh, calf and foot. There is 
     no evidence of any fragment wounds or blunt trauma injuries 
     in the areas of Sgt. Peralta's body covered by armor. 
     Examination of the body armor revealed numerous shrapnel 
     defects of the left side. densely grouped at the left mid 
     chest region with fewer defects superiorly and inferiorly. A 
     piece of the fuse was recovered from his flak jacket.
       Present on the back of the head. behind the left ear, in 
     the left parietal-occipital region is a vertically oriented, 
     gaping wound measuring approximately 4 x 1.5 cm. This wound 
     is level with the left ear. The skin extending outward from 
     the lateral aspect of the wound shows confluent abrasion out 
     to a distance of approximately 3.5 cm. Protruding from this 
     wound are fragments of bone. Present in the right occipital 
     scalp, level with the inferior end of the left sided wound, 
     is an approximate 2 x 1 cm irregular wound.
       Photographs of the interior of the cranial cavity show an 
     elongated, ragged edged defect of the occipital bone in the 
     left occipital lobe fossa. This defect runs in a para-coronal 
     plain, extending from the left lambdoidal suture to 
     approximately the midline of the head. The lateral end of the 
     wound shows some internal beveling with the rest of the wound 
     having a sharp edged, punched out appearance. Two secondary 
     fracture lines extend from this defect, one to the nine 
     o'clock position of the foramen magnum and the other 
     diagonally across the right cerebella fossa to approximately 
     the right lambdoidal suture. X-rays of the head show 
     fragmentation of bone at this wound site with a few fine 
     metal fragments. Present in the right cerebral hemisphere, in 
     the area of the right tempero-parietal lobe, is the steel 
     penetrator of a 5.56 x 45 bullet. On review of the autopsy. 
     the penetrator was said to have perforated the left occipital 
     lobe penetrating into the right tempero-parietal lobe.
       Based on the aforementioned observation, it appears that 
     Sgt. Peralta was struck in the back of the head by a 5.56 x 
     45 bullet traveling from his left to right. The bullet struck 
     the head at a tangential angle inflicting a gutter wound, 
     fragmenting bone, depositing a few tiny fragments of metal 
     and breaking up. The 10.1 grain steel penetrator entered the 
     cranial cavity penetrating the brain. The wound in the right 
     occipital scalp may represent the exit side for the rest of 
     the bullet or at least a fragment of the bullet that traveled 
     beneath the scalp. The bullet striking the back of the head 
     may represent a ricochet rather than a primary impact 
     especially in view of the extensive area of abrasion along 
     one margin of the wound.
       The bulk of the injury to the left occipital pole of the 
     brain was due to the bone fragments produced by the gutter 
     wound and not by the bullet itself or the penetrator. The 
     10.1 grain penetrator had minimal velocity and, thus, by 
     virtue of this and its low weight, minimal kinetic energy. 
     This is shown by the fact that the penetrator did not even 
     exit the brain, let alone the head. By virtue of its low 
     kinetic energy, injury from the penetrator would only be 
     confined to the direct penetrator path, which would 
     average approximately 0.181 inches in diameter.
       Two senior Naval neurosurgeons, a Captain and a Commander, 
     a senior Naval neurologist, a Captain, from the Naval Medical 
     Center in San Diego, CA, reviewed the autopsy report and 
     witness statements and came to the conclusion that Sgt. 
     Peralta could well have carried out the actions attributed to 
     him, intentional scooping of a hand grenade beneath his body.
       The only person to contend that Sgt. Peralta could not have 
     performed the action attributed to him is the pathologist who 
     performed the autopsy. He states that the gunshot wound would 
     have been immediately incapacitating and instantly fatal and 
     that Sgt. Peralta could not have executed any meaningful 
     options. He also states that there were no significant 
     internal injuries from blunt force trauma of the thorax and 
     abdomen, virtually ruling out a grenade explosion beneath his 
     body. He felt that even with body armor, a military grenade 
     would cause blunt force injury of which there was none.
       Based on my experience I would have to respectfully 
     disagree with the opinions of the pathologist. The injuries 
     to the brain consist of injury to the left cerebral pole and 
     a thin wound channel running from the left occipital pole to 
     the right temporo-parietal lobe. No vital area such as the 
     brain stem and basal ganglia were injured. I have seen 
     individuals with head trauma who are alert, conscious and 
     talking even though there was extensive injury to the cranial 
     vault and brain and which ``common sense'' would tell you is 
     not possible. This opinion of mine is reinforced by the 
     opinions of the two neurosurgeons and the neurologist. Unless 
     a vital area is injured, one should be extremely careful in 
     giving the opinion that an individual was absolutely unable 
     to perform an action.
       In regard to the absence of blunt force trauma from the 
     hand grenade, examination of the vest revealed evidence of 
     numerous shrapnel trauma densely grouped in the left mid 
     chest along with the grenade fuse. The armor obviously 
     absorbed a hand grenade detonation at close range. The force 
     would have been distributed over a large surface area by the 
     armor. This may prevent any evidence of trauma underneath the 
     armor.
       In conclusion, we are presented with three factors:
       1. Seven witnesses who saw Sgt. Peralta scoop a hand 
     grenade to himself
       2. Two neurosurgeons and a neurologist who state that the 
     Sgt. Peralta could have performed this action
       3. A physician who states that Sgt. Peralta would have been 
     immediately incapacitated and could not have executed any 
     meaningful actions. He also states that the grenade did not 
     detonate beneath the body despite evidence on the armor that 
     it did
       Taking into account the circumstances surrounding the 
     incident; the statements of the witnesses; the condition of 
     the body armor: the autopsy findings; the opinion of the 
     neurosurgeons and neurologist and my own experience with head 
     wounds, it is my opinion that, in all medical probability, 
     Sgt. Peralta was not immediately incapacitated by the brain 
     injury, and in fact reached for the grenade and pulled it 
     under his body.
           Sincerely,
                                        Vincent J.M. DiMaio, M.D.,
                                 Consultant in Forensic Pathology.

  The Acting CHAIR. The question is on the amendment offered by 
gentleman from California (Mr. Hunter).
  The amendment was agreed to.


           Amendment No. 111 Offered by Mr. Price of Georgia

  The Acting CHAIR. It is now in order to consider amendment No. 111 
printed in House Report 112 485.
  Mr. PRICE of Georgia. Mr. Chairman, I have an amendment made in order 
under the rule.
  The Acting CHAIR. The Clerk will designate the amendment.
  The text of the amendment is as follows:

       At the end of title X, add the following new section:

     SEC. 1084. REQUIREMENT FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL TO INVESTIGATE 
                   POSSIBLE VIOLATIONS OF FEDERAL LAW RELATED TO 
                   LEAKS OF SENSITIVE INFORMATION INVOLVING THE 
                   MILITARY, INTELLIGENCE, AND OPERATIONAL 
                   CAPABILITIES OF THE UNITED STATES AND ISRAEL.

       (a) Investigation Required.--Not later than 30 days after 
     the date of the enactment of this Act, the Attorney General 
     shall initiate an investigation into possible violations of 
     Federal law related to leaks of sensitive information 
     involving the military, intelligence, and operational 
     capabilities of the United States and Israel.
       (b) Report.--Not later than 60 days after the date of the 
     enactment of this Act, the Attorney General shall submit to 
     Congress a report describing the status and progress of the 
     investigation required under subsection (a).

  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to House Resolution 661, the gentleman 
from Georgia (Mr. Price) and a Member opposed each will control 5 
minutes.

[[Page H3140]]

  The Chair recognizes the gentleman from Georgia.
  Mr. PRICE of Georgia. Mr. Chairman, for over 60 years, the United 
States and Israel have forged a very unique relationship. A friendship 
built upon trust and shared sacrifice and common values. But our 
relations with Israel, as with a growing number of long-held alliances, 
seem to be negotiable with this administration.
  A stream of highly sensitive information continues to be leaked to 
the press--information that includes U.S. and Israeli military and 
intelligence operational capabilities, as well as classified 
negotiations between Israel and other countries.
  On March 20, The New York Times, citing senior administration 
officials, reported the conclusions of a classified war simulation 
conducted by the United States that analyzed an Israeli attack on 
Iranian nuclear facilities.
  On March 28, Foreign Policy magazine, quoting four senior diplomats 
and military intelligence officers, referred to a report that Israel 
would be granted access to air bases in Azerbaijan as part of an attack 
on Iran's nuclear facilities, a move clearly designed to undercut 
cooperation between Azerbaijan and Israel.
  Further degrading Israel's ability to defend itself, The Washington 
Post's David Ignatius on February 3 reported that Secretary of Defense 
Leon Panetta believes there's a strong likelihood that Israel will 
strike Iran in April, May, or June, which reportedly sent Iran's air 
defenses on high alert.
  The release of this classified information not only puts at risk 
fragile negotiations between countries but also the very lives of the 
men and women called upon to carry out this mission.
  I recently traveled to the Middle East, where we met with senior 
Israeli officials. Their number one concern was that for the first time 
in our long relationship, United States was releasing classified 
operational information and capabilities, willfully putting at risk the 
lives of Israeli people.
  Mr. Chairman, our actions are not the actions of a friend or an ally. 
A couple of weeks ago, I joined with 22 other Members of the House of 
Representatives and sent a letter to President Obama calling for an 
investigation into these leaks by senior administration and 
intelligence officials. We have yet to receive a response.
  Now it's no secret that this administration is seeking to dissuade 
Israel from launching an airstrike on Iranian nuclear facilities, but 
risking Israeli and American lives and undermining our alliance is 
unacceptable. The Israeli people should not have to question our 
support for their security.
  So I offer this amendment with Representative Pat Meehan and 
Representative Randy Hultgren. Our amendment calls for the Attorney 
General to investigate these leaks and bring those responsible to 
justice. Trust and cooperation are vital to securing a strong alliance 
and a future of peace. The persons responsible for this breach of faith 
should be held accountable, and I reserve the balance of my time.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, though I'm not opposed to the 
amendment, I ask unanimous consent to claim the time in opposition.
  The Acting CHAIR. Without objection, the gentleman is recognized for 
5 minutes.
  There was no objection.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I too support the amendment, 
and with that, I yield back the balance of my time.
  Mr. PRICE of Georgia. I urge adoption of the amendment, and I yield 
back the balance of my time.
  The Acting CHAIR. The question is on the amendment offered by the 
gentleman from Georgia (Mr. Price).
  The question was taken; and the Acting Chair announced that the ayes 
appeared to have it.
  Mr. PRICE of Georgia. Mr. Chairman, I demand a recorded vote.
  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to clause 6 of rule XVIII, further 
proceedings on the amendment offered by the gentleman from Georgia will 
be postponed.

                              {time}  1130


                 Amendment No. 119 Offered by Mr. Flake

  The Acting CHAIR. It is now in order to consider amendment No. 119 
printed in House Report 112 485.
  Mr. FLAKE. Mr. Chairman, I have an amendment at the desk.
  The Acting CHAIR. The Clerk will designate the amendment.
  The text of the amendment is as follows:

       Page 559, line 7, strike ``such time as'' and insert ``30 
     days after the date on which''.

  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to House Resolution 661, the gentleman 
from Arizona (Mr. Flake) and a Member opposed each will control 5 
minutes.
  The Chair recognizes the gentleman from Arizona.
  Mr. FLAKE. Mr. Chairman, in 2009, the Pakistan Counterinsurgency Fund 
was established in order to help Pakistan build its counterinsurgency 
capabilities. The bill before us reauthorizes the Pakistan 
Counterinsurgency Fund through the year 2013 and contains a special 
oversight requirement which conditions the use of more than 10 percent 
of any money appropriated to the fund until the Secretaries of Defense 
and State submit an updated report reflecting current conditions in 
Pakistan to Congress. That report will include details on how much 
money is to be used, metrics for success, a description of Pakistan's 
efforts to combat terrorist organizations inside the country, and it 
will have rigorous oversight provisions. I commend the Committee on 
Armed Services for continuing to do this important oversight.
  But the way the law is written, access to 100 percent of the funds 
appropriated for the Pakistan Counterinsurgency Fund would be granted 
as soon as that report is submitted, leaving no time for Congress to 
actually review the report before these funds are obligated. I'm 
concerned that this report will simply be submitted to Congress, and it 
will be perfunctory in nature--the report is issued and, boom, the 
funds are gone before Congress has a chance to actually look at it. 
This amendment would simply add a requirement that once the Secretaries 
of Defense and State submit their report, a period of 30 days has to 
elapse before the money can be fully utilized. The 30-day period will 
give Congress time to actually review the report and, more importantly, 
it will give us the option to prevent the expenditure of further funds 
if necessary.
  This last year has shown the tumultuous relationship that we have 
with Pakistan. Particularly, it's been more strained since the killing 
of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan just over a year ago. Congress needs 
this flexibility to better manage the flow of U.S. taxpayer dollars to 
a country whose support of the U.S. has been anything but consistent. 
This amendment simply gives Congress that flexibility.
  I urge adoption, and I reserve the balance of my time.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, though I'm not opposed to the 
amendment, I ask unanimous consent to claim the time in opposition.
  The Acting CHAIR. The gentleman is recognized for 5 minutes.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. I would just say that I think the gentleman 
raises excellent points, and I urge the body to support the amendment.
  I yield back the balance of my time.
  Mr. FLAKE. I urge adoption of the amendment and yield back the 
balance of my time.
  The Acting CHAIR. The question is on the amendment offered by the 
gentleman from Arizona (Mr. Flake).
  The amendment was agreed to.


        Amendment No. 133 Offered by Mr. Murphy of Pennsylvania

  The Acting CHAIR. It is now in order to consider amendment No. 133 
printed in House Report 112 485.
  Mr. MURPHY of Pennsylvania. Mr. Chairman, I have an amendment at the 
desk.
  The Acting CHAIR. The Clerk will designate the amendment.
  The text of the amendment is as follows:

       At the end of subtitle B of title XXVII, add the following 
     new section (and make such conforming changes to the table of 
     contents in section 2(b) as may be necessary):

     SEC. 2714. NOTIFICATION OF PERMANENT REDUCTION OF SIZABLE 
                   NUMBER OF MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES.

       Subsection (b) of section 993 of title 10, United States 
     Code, is amended by striking paragraphs (1) through (3) and 
     inserting the following:
       ``(1) the Secretary of Defense or the Secretary of the 
     military department concerned notifies the Committee on Armed 
     Services of the Senate and the Committee on Armed

[[Page H3141]]

     Services of the House of Representatives, as part of an 
     annual request for authorization of appropriations to such 
     Committees, of the proposed reduction and the number of 
     personnel assignments affected and submits with the 
     notification an evaluation of the fiscal, local economic, 
     budgetary, environmental, strategic, and operational 
     consequences of such closure or realignment; and
       ``(2) a period of 30 legislative days or 60 calendar days, 
     whichever is longer, expires following the day on which the 
     notice and evaluation referred to in paragraphs (1) and (2) 
     have been submitted to such committees.''.

  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to House Resolution 661, the gentleman 
from Pennsylvania (Mr. Murphy) and a Member opposed each will control 5 
minutes.
  The Chair recognizes the gentleman from Pennsylvania.
  Mr. MURPHY of Pennsylvania. Mr. Chairman, I rise in support of this 
amendment and note that we all share the highest respect and admiration 
for all our military, from all branches. But the Air Force proposal to 
retire more than 200 aircraft and eliminate 9,100 positions impacts 149 
U.S. installations, but only one base faces cuts so severe that it 
would be closed, and that is the 911th Air Reserve Station in 
Pittsburgh.
  If the 911th was inefficient, not cost-effective, or served no unique 
strategic purpose, I would support the Air Force's decision 
wholeheartedly, but I'm afraid the attempt to close the 911th was 
misguided, mistaken, and misinformed. That's why I submitted an 
amendment, along with Representatives Doyle, Critz, and Altmire, to 
ensure Congress has the ability to review Pentagon decisions and 
enforce cost and strategic accountability on force reductions.
  I'm grateful Mr. Young of Alaska worked to combine our amendment with 
his and that it was adopted in en bloc No. 6. But first I want to say a 
few words about why this effort was so critical, not just to the 911th 
Airlift Wing, but the entire country.
  The decision to close the 911th is the present-day tale of the $400 
hammer and the $200 toilet seat. When you don't do proper due 
diligence, haste makes waste.
  As my community has witnessed with the Air Force's attempt to close 
the 911th, the Pentagon is using a loophole to outflank Congress and 
ignore the intent of the statutes. The Pennsylvania congressional 
delegation repeatedly sought information about the decision to close 
our base, but we never received accurate and detailed information about 
the Air Force's justifications.
  As the home of seven C 130 Hercules transport planes, the 1,100-plus 
reservists at the 911th provide critical mission support for global 
military logistical operations with an active tempo in Iraq and 
Afghanistan. The Air Force did not perform a base-by-base cost 
comparison of the 911th against other Reserve and Guard stations 
housing C 130s. Instead, it did a plane-by-plane cost comparison, 
comparing the oldest models with the newer ones. Unfortunately, the 
911th now has the oldest models of C 130s because the Air Force 
recently swapped out the newer ones for active duty operations in 
Afghanistan.
  With four 10,000-foot runways and a control tower, fire, safety, and 
security support provided at virtually no cost to the Air Force, the 
911th is indeed cost-effective, while other bases cost hundreds of 
millions of dollars over 10 years for similar and even less services.
  Since 1976, Congress has insisted on having a voice in Pentagon 
decisions to close or substantially reduce civilian personnel at 
military bases. Two statutes have been enacted to prevent base closures 
from occurring without congressional review. Our crucial amendment 
prevents the Pentagon from moving forward on a back-door BRAC in 
violation of congressional intent to review those decisions and ensure 
base closure attempts are both in the best interest of the taxpayers 
and our national defense.
  And it protects the jurisdiction of the House and Senate Committees 
on Armed Services by requiring force reduction proposals be submitted 
as part of the President's budget request. This gives Congress two 
opportunities to review and reverse base closures if they are not in 
national strategic interest, both in the annual defense authorization 
and appropriations bills. Our language protects Congress' ability to 
review force structure changes and requires the Pentagon to complete a 
thorough and accurate analysis before moving forward.
  But through the support of Chairman McKeon, Mr. Forbes of Virginia, 
Ranking Member Smith, as well as the leadership of the Defense 
Appropriation Subcommittee, who have worked with us on this issue, the 
underlying legislation prevents the Air Force from making any aircraft 
retirements or transfers in the next fiscal year.
  With the NDAA and defense appropriations bills, Congress will now 
have the opportunity to vote on legislation to save the 911th Airlift 
Wing for the upcoming year and stop the Air Force from making any 
decision on massive Guard and Reserve cuts that are misguided, 
mistaken, and misinformed.
  Even if both of these bills were enacted, this amendment is still 
needed, because without it, the executive branch can close any Guard or 
Reserve base without giving Congress a chance to review the decision.
  On behalf of the families of the 1,100-plus military families at the 
911th, I ask unanimous consent to withdraw my amendment since the 
Young-Murphy amendment has already been adopted.
  The Acting CHAIR. Without objection, the amendment is withdrawn.
  There was no objection.


                    Announcement by the Acting Chair

  The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to clause 6 of rule XVIII, proceedings

                    Announcement by the Acting Chair

  The Acting CHAIR (during the vote). There is 1 minute remaining.

                              {time}  1207

  Ms. BONAMICI, Ms. WASSERMAN SCHULTZ, and Mr. HOLT changed their vote 
from ``aye'' to ``no.''
  Mr. DAVIS of Illinois changed his vote from ``no'' to ``aye.''
  So the amendment was agreed to.
  The result of the vote was announced as above recorded.
  Stated for:
  Mr. FILNER. Mr. Chair, on rollcall 289, I was away from the Capitol 
due to prior commitments to my constituents. Had I been present, I 
would have voted ``aye.''
  The Acting CHAIR. The question is on the amendment in the nature of a 
substitute, as amended.
  The amendment was agreed to.
  The Acting CHAIR. Under the rule, the Committee rises.
  Accordingly, the Committee rose; and the Speaker pro tempore (Mrs. 
Biggert) having assumed the chair, Mr. Westmoreland, Acting Chair of 
the Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union, reported 
that that Committee, having had under consideration the bill (H.R. 
4310) to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2013 for military 
activities of the Department of Defense, to prescribe military 
personnel strengths for fiscal year 2013, and for other purposes, and, 
pursuant to House Resolution 661, he reported the bill back to the 
House with an amendment adopted in the Committee of the Whole.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Under the rule, the previous question is 
ordered.
  Is a separate vote demanded on any amendment to the amendment 
reported from the Committee of the Whole?
  If not, the question is on the amendment in the nature of a 
substitute, as amended.
  The amendment was agreed to.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the engrossment and third 
reading of the bill.
  The bill was ordered to be engrossed and read a third time, and was 
read the third time.

                              {time}  1210


                           Motion to Recommit

  Mr. GARAMENDI. Madam Speaker, I have a motion to recommit at the 
desk.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is the gentleman opposed to the bill?
  Mr. GARAMENDI. I am opposed to the bill in its current form.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Clerk will report the motion to 
recommit.
  The Clerk read as follows:

       Mr. Garamendi moves to recommit the bill H.R. 4310 to the 
     Committee on Armed Services with instructions to report the 
     same back to the House forthwith with the following 
     amendments:
       Strike section 343.
       At the end of subtitle C of title X, add the following new 
     section:

     SEC. 1023. REPAIRING U.S. SHIPS IN AMERICAN PORTS TO CREATE 
                   JOBS.

       Section 7310 of title 10, United States Code, is amended to 
     read as follows:

     ``Sec.  7310 Overhaul, repair, etc. of vessels in foreign 
       shipyards: restrictions

       ``(a) Domestic Shipyards.--Except as provided in subsection 
     (b), each naval vessel and each United States-flagged vessel 
     that is providing services to the Federal Government may not 
     be overhauled, repaired, or maintained in a shipyard outside 
     the United States or Guam, other than in the case of voyage 
     repairs.
       ``(b) Waiver.--The Secretary of Defense may waive the 
     requirement in subsection (a) if the Secretary--
       ``(1) determines that such waiver--
       ``(A) is necessary for purposes of national security; or
       ``(B) is in response to urgent repair; and
       ``(2) notifies the congressional defense committees of such 
     waiver by not later than two days after issuing such 
     waiver.''.

                         Parliamentary Inquiry

  Mr. GARAMENDI. Madam Speaker, I have a parliamentary inquiry.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentleman from California will state his 
inquiry.
  Mr. GARAMENDI. Is it not the case that if my amendment is adopted, we 
would immediately vote on the final passage of the bill, as amended?
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. As the Chair stated on February 27, 2002, 
May 10, 2012, and May 16, 2012, if a motion to recommit with forthwith 
instructions is adopted, the amendment is reported by the chair of the 
committee and is immediately before the House.
  The gentleman from California is recognized for 5 minutes.
  Mr. GARAMENDI. Madam Speaker, this is a very simple amendment. This 
is about a four-letter word, ``jobs,'' American jobs. This is about 
jobs for American men and women. We know there is plenty of 
unemployment. We've heard repeatedly, as the amendments have been put 
forth on this floor, that the National Defense Authorization Act is 
about jobs.
  Well, we think there ought to be a few more jobs, and we think those 
jobs ought to be in American ports, at American shipyards, for the men 
and women that work in the shipyards of America. Whether those 
shipyards are in Guam or those shipyards are here on the continent, 
American workers want to go to work, and they can.
  With this amendment, my colleagues, with this amendment, American 
workers in our ports, at American shipyards will have more jobs. There 
are few enough already. I cannot understand why anybody in this House 
would vote against a jobs bill, particularly one that doesn't cost us 
any more money than is already going to be spent.
  The question here is, Where will the jobs be? Are the jobs going to 
be in a foreign port, such as Hong Kong? Are the jobs going to be in 
Singapore? Are they going to be in Dubai? Or are they going to be in 
America?
  Ladies and gentlemen, my colleagues, we want jobs in America. We want 
it made in America. We want it repaired in America. And we want 
Americans to have jobs. That's what this amendment is about.
  Is there anyone here that would disagree with that? Is there anyone 
on this floor that would disagree with the men and women that work in 
our shipyards having an opportunity to repair American military 
vessels? Where are you? Which one among you is going to vote against a 
man or a woman here in the United States repairing an American vessel?
  And it's not just the Navy. This is about the merchant marines. This 
is about those American flagged ships that provide service to our 
military. Where will they be repaired? In some foreign port? Or are 
they going to be repaired by Americans in American ports?
  This is about American jobs--not millions of jobs, but tens of 
thousands of jobs.
  Those of you that represent those ports where there are ship repair 
facilities, pay attention to this one. Pay attention to this because 
these are jobs for your constituents. These are jobs repairing American 
naval vessels. This is about your job in your district. This is about 
your job in your district and your work and my work to make sure that 
we have American jobs repairing American naval vessels.
  Now if there's an emergency, that's another matter. That's waived, 
and that's not included in here.
  This is about your job protecting your people in your district, those 
men and women in your district that are at the ports, that are at the 
ship repair facilities, that are hungering for the jobs. They want to 
bring the bread back home. They want to bring food to their table. They 
want to pay their mortgage. And this bill provides them with an 
opportunity to continue to work to repair American naval vessels here 
in American ports, American men and women working to keep our ships on 
the line, on the seas operating. And for those ships that are American 
flagships across this world, delivering the supplies to our men and 
women wherever they happen to be, those ships too will be repaired in 
American ports.

[[Page H3144]]

  This is a jobs bill. This is a simple vote for your people in your 
home districts, whether they will have the opportunity or whether the 
job will be in a foreign port, with foreign workers repairing American 
naval vessels.
  There's also a small national security issue here. Many of these 
ships are ships of the line that provide very important services. For 
example, the USS Samuel Roberts, a guided missile frigate, repaired in 
Italy. I don't have a problem with the Italians. But I want those 
Italians to be in America working on the USS Samuel Roberts. The USS 
Blue Ridge, a command and control ship, $16 million of work, repaired 
in Japan, when it could have just as easily been done in Guam or Hawaii 
or another American port.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The time of the gentleman has expired.
  Mr. GARAMENDI. I ask for your ``aye'' vote. I ask for American jobs.


                Announcement by the Speaker Pro Tempore

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Members are reminded to address their 
remarks to the Chair and not to others in the second person.

                              {time}  1220

  Mr. McKEON. Madam Speaker, I rise in opposition to the motion to 
recommit.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentleman from California is recognized 
for 5 minutes.
  Mr. McKEON. Colleagues, we've had a good couple of weeks. We've had 
some late nights. We've addressed hundreds of amendments in committee 
and in the House.
  This is a joke. For them to come down to the floor and talk about 
jobs, when they're cutting defense to this degree, taking all of the 
jobs out of the military, I don't even know where to begin.
