     SEC. 1035. STRATEGY TO DISRUPT AND DEGRADE HAQQANI NETWORK 
                   ACTIVITIES, FINANCES, AND RESOURCES.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The Haqqani Network is the primary partner for the 
     Taliban, al Qaeda, regional militants, and other global 
     Islamic jihadists committing acts of violence, as well as 
     political and economic oppression in Afghanistan and 
     Pakistan.
       (2) The Haqqani Network continues to be a strategic threat 
     to the safety, security, and stability of both Afghanistan 
     and Pakistan, as well as the broader region.
       (3) The Haqqani Network is directly responsible for a 
     significant number of United States casualties and injuries 
     on the battlefield in Afghanistan.
       (4) The Haqqani Network continues to actively plan 
     potentially catastrophic attacks against United States 
     interests and personnel in Afghanistan.
       (5) Congress has repeatedly urged the Administration to 
     implement a comprehensive approach to disrupt and degrade the 
     Haqqani Network's operations and finances.
       (6) On September 19, 2012, the Secretary of State formally 
     designated the Haqqani Network a Foreign Terrorist 
     Organization pursuant to section 219 of the Immigration and 
     Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189).
       (7) The Haqqani Network has not been pressured by a 
     sustained and systemic campaign against its financial 
     infrastructure.
       (8) Without the implementation of a more robust strategy to 
     disrupt and degrade the operations and finances of the 
     Haqqani Network, the continued planned drawdown of United 
     States and coalition forces will provide the Haqqani Network 
     with additional opportunities to plot and execute attacks 
     against the United States and western interests.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that 
     the Administration should more urgently prioritize and 
     execute its full authority to disrupt and degrade the Haqqani 
     Network and to deny the organization finances and resources 
     it requires to carry out their activities.
       (c) Strategy to Disrupt and Degrade Haqqani Network 
     Activities, Finances, and Resources.--
       (1) Strategy required.--The President shall establish a 
     comprehensive strategy to disrupt and degrade Haqqani Network 
     activities, finances, and resources.
       (2) Coordination.--The strategy required by paragraph (1) 
     shall be prepared by the Secretary of Defense in coordination 
     with the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, 
     the Attorney General, and the Director of National 
     Intelligence, and any other department or agency of the 
     United States Government involved in activities related to 
     disrupting and degrading the Haqqani Network.
       (3) Elements.--The strategy required by paragraph (1) 
     shall--
       (A) build upon the current activities of the Department of 
     Defense, the Department of State, the Department of the 
     Treasury, the Department of Justice, and the elements of the 
     intelligence community to disrupt and degrade Haqqani Network 
     activities, finances, and resources;
       (B) provide assessments by the appropriate element of the 
     intelligence community assessment--
       (i) of the operations and aspirations of the Haqqani 
     Network in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and its activities 
     outside the region; and
       (ii) of the relationships, networks, and vulnerabilities of 
     the Haqqani Network, including with Pakistan's military, 
     intelligence services, and government officials, including 
     provincial and district officials;
       (C) review the plans and intentions of the Haqqani Network 
     for the upcoming Afghan Presidential elections and the 
     continued drawdown of United States and coalition troops;
       (D) review the current United States policies, operations, 
     and funding to identify impediments to applying sustained and 
     systemic pressure against the Haqqani Network's financial 
     infrastructure;
       (E) examine the role current United States and coalition 
     contracting processes have in furthering the financial 
     interests of the Haqqani Network, and how such strategy will 
     mitigate the unintended consequences of such processes;
       (F) provide an assessment of individuals in Afghanistan and 
     neighboring countries who facilitate the manufacturing, 
     procurement, and transport of materials and components used 
     to build and detonate improvised explosive devices and how 
     the strategy will disrupt these efforts;
       (G) include an assessment of formal and informal business 
     sectors penetrated by the Haqqani Network in Afghanistan, 
     Pakistan, and other countries, particularly in the Persian 
     Gulf region, and how the strategy will counter these 
     activities;
       (H) include an assessment of other United States interests 
     in targeting financial institutions and business entities 
     that knowingly facilitate, or participate in assisting, 
     including by acting on behalf of, at the direction of, or as 
     an intermediary for, or otherwise assisting formal and 
     informal Haqqani Network financial activities;
       (I) include an estimate of associated costs required to 
     plan and execute the proposed activities to disrupt and 
     degrade the Haqqani Network's operations and resources; and
       (J) include a discussion of the metrics to measure the 
     strategy's and activities' success to disrupt and degrade 
     Haqqani Network activities, finances, and resources.
       (4) Integration and coordination.--The strategy required by 
     paragraph (1) shall include an assessment of gaps in current 
     efforts to disrupt and degrade the Haqqani Network's 
     operations, an articulation of agencies' financial disruption 
     priorities, the establishment of appropriate metrics for 
     determining and measuring success, and steps to ensure that 
     the strategy fits in broader United States efforts to 
     stabilize Afghanistan and prevent the region from being a 
     safe haven for al Qaeda and its affiliates.
       (5) Strategy and implementation plan.--The Secretary of 
     Defense shall submit to the appropriate committees of 
     Congress--
       (A) not later than March 31, 2014, the strategy required by 
     paragraph (1); and
       (B) not later than 180 days after the submission of such 
     strategy, a plan for the implementation of such strategy.
       (6) Form.--The strategy required by paragraph (1) shall be 
     submitted in unclassified form, but may include a classified 
     annex.
       (d) Definitions.--In this section:

authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2014 for military activities

     SEC. 646. SENSE OF SENATE THAT FUNDS FOR DEATH GRATUITIES AND 
                   RELATED SURVIVOR BENEFITS FOR SURVIVORS OF 
                   DECEASED MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES SHOULD NOT 
                   BE SUBJECT TO ANNUAL APPROPRIATIONS.

       (a) Findings.--The Senate makes the following findings:
       (1) The death gratuity and related survivor benefits are a 
     one-time payment to help families with the acute financial 
     hardships that accompany the loss of a deceased member of the 
     Armed Forces.
       (2) During the recent lapse in appropriations, the death 
     gratuity and related survivor benefits were suspended until 
     an appropriations Act covering payment of such benefits was 
     enacted.
       (3) Not paying the death gratuity and related survivor 
     benefits in a timely manner stands against our values as a 
     Nation to honor and support those who paid the ultimate 
     sacrifice.

[[Page S8130]]

       (4) While it is altruistic to declare that lapses in annual 
     appropriations must be avoided, a history of periodic lapses 
     in annual appropriations suggests other such lapses are 
     possible.
       (5) It is time for permanent legislation that will ensure 
     death gratuities and related survivor benefit for families of 
     deceased members of the Armed Forces are not subject to 
     annual appropriations.
       (b) Sense of Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate that 
     funds for death gratuities and related survivor benefits for 
     survivors of deceased members of the Armed Forces should not 
     be subject to annual appropriations.

     seeks further nuclear arms reductions with the Russian 
     Federation, below the levels of the New START Treaty, such 
     reductions--
       (1) should only be pursued through mutual negotiated
