   <<NOTE: National Whale Conservation Fund Act of 1998. 16 USC 3701 
note. 16 USC 3703 note.>> TITLE IX NATIONAL WHALE CONSERVATION FUND ACT

    Sec. 901. Short Title. This title may be cited as the ``National 
Whale Conservation Fund Act of 1998''.
    Sec. 902. Findings. Congress finds that--
            (1) the populations of whales that occur in waters of the 
        United States are resources of substantial ecological, 
        scientific, socioeconomic, and esthetic value;
            (2) whale populations--
                    (A) form a significant component of marine 
                ecosystems;
                    (B) are the subject of intense research;
                    (C) provide for a multimillion dollar whale watching 
                tourist industry that provides the public an opportunity 
                to enjoy and learn about great whales and the ecosystems 
                of which the whales are a part; and
                    (D) are of importance to Native Americans for 
                cultural and subsistence purposes;
            (3) whale populations are in various stages of recovery, and 
        some whale populations, such as the northern right whale 
        (Eubaleana glacialis) remain perilously close to extinction;
            (4) the interactions that occur between ship traffic, 
        commercial fishing, whale watching vessels, and other 
        recreational vessels and whale populations may affect whale 
        populations adversely;
            (5) the exploration and development of oil, gas, and hard 
        mineral resources, marine debris, chemical pollutants, noise, 
        and other anthropogenic sources of change in the habitat of 
        whales may affect whale populations adversely;
            (6) the conservation of whale populations is subject to 
        difficult challenges related to--
                    (A) the migration of whale populations across 
                international boundaries;
                    (B) the size of individual whales, as that size 
                precludes certain conservation research procedures that 
                may be used for other animal species, such as captive 
                research and breeding;
                    (C) the low reproductive rates of whales that 
                require long-term conservation programs to ensure 
                recovery of whale populations; and
                    (D) the occurrence of whale populations in offshore 
                waters where undertaking research, monitoring, and 
                conservation measures is difficult and costly;
            (7)(A) the Secretary of Commerce, through the Administrator 
        of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-120]]

        has research and regulatory responsibility for the conservation 
        of whales under the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 (16 
        U.S.C. 1361 et seq.); and
            (B) the heads of other Federal agencies and the Marine 
        Mammal Commission established under section 201 of the Marine 
        Mammal Protection Act of 1972 (16 U.S.C. 1401) have related 
        research and management activities under the Marine Mammal 
        Protection Act of 1972 or the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 
        U.S.C. 1531 et seq.);
            (8) the funding available for the activities described in 
        paragraph (8) is insufficient to support all necessary whale 
        conservation and recovery activities; and
            (9) there is a need to facilitate the use of funds from non-
        Federal sources to carry out the conservation of whales.

    Sec. 903. National Whale Conservation Fund. Section 4 of the 
National Fish and Wildlife Establishment Act (16 U.S.C. 3703) is amended 
by adding at the end the following:
    ``(f)(1) In carrying out the purposes under section 2(b), the 
Foundation may establish a national whale conservation endowment fund, 
to be used by the Foundation to support research, management activities, 
or educational programs that contribute to the protection, conservation, 
or recovery of whale populations in waters of the United States.
    ``(2)(A) In a manner consistent with subsection (c)(1), the 
Foundation may--
            ``(i) accept, receive, solicit, hold, administer, and use 
        any gift, devise, or bequest made to the Foundation for the 
        express purpose of supporting whale conservation; and
            ``(ii) deposit in the endowment fund under paragraph (1) any 
        funds made available to the Foundation under this subparagraph, 
        including any income or interest earned from a gift, devise, or 
        bequest received by the Foundation under this subparagraph.

    ``(B) To raise funds to be deposited in the endowment fund under 
paragraph (1), the Foundation may enter into appropriate arrangements to 
provide for the design, copyright, production, marketing, or licensing, 
of logos, seals, decals, stamps, or any other item that the Foundation 
determines to be appropriate.
    ``(C)(i) The Secretary of Commerce may transfer to the Foundation 
for deposit in the endowment fund under paragraph (1) any amount (or 
portion thereof) received by the Secretary under section 105(a)(1) of 
the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 (16 U.S.C. 1375(a)(1)) as a 
civil penalty assessed by the Secretary under that section.
    ``(ii) The Directors of the Board shall ensure that any amounts 
transferred to the Foundation under clause (i)
for the endowment fund under paragraph (1) are deposited in that fund in 
accordance with this subparagraph.

    ``(3) It is the intent of Congress that in making expenditures from 
the endowment fund under paragraph (1) to carry out activities specified 
in that paragraph, the Foundation should give priority to funding 
projects that address the conservation of populations of whales that the 
Foundation determines--
            ``(A) are the most endangered (including the northern right 
        whale (Eubaleana glacialis)); or

            ``(B) most warrant, and are most likely to benefit from, 
        research management, or educational activities that may be 
        funded with amounts made available from the fund.

    ``(g) In carrying out any action on the part of the Foundation under 
subsection (f), the Directors of the Board shall consult with the 
Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and

services contractors, notwithstanding any other provision of law, for 
the purpose of administering programs for the West Bank and Gaza.
    (d)(1) Waiver.--The President may waive the provisions of section 
1003 of Public Law 100-204 if the President determines and certifies in 
writing to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President 
pro tempore of the Senate that it is important to the national security 
interests of the United States.
    (2) Period of Application of Waiver.--Any waiver pursuant to 
paragraph (1) shall be effective for no more than a period of six months 
at a time and shall not apply beyond twelve months after enactment of 
                                this Act.

    Sec. 541. It is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) the Arab League countries should immediately and 
        publicly renounce the primary boycott of Israel and the 
        secondary and tertiary boycott of American firms that have 
        commercial ties with Israel;

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-184]]

            (2) the decision by the Arab League in 1997 to reinstate the 
        boycott against Israel was deeply troubling and disappointing;
            (3) the Arab League should immediately rescind its decision 
        on the boycott and its members should develop normal relations 
        with their neighbor Israel; and
            (4) the President should--
                    (A) take more concrete steps to encourage vigorously 
                Arab League countries to renounce publicly the primary 
                boycotts of Israel and the secondary and tertiary 
                boycotts of American firms that have commercial 
                relations with Israel as a confidence-building measure;
                    (B) take into consideration the participation of any 
                recipient country in the primary
boycott of Israel and the secondary and tertiary boycotts of American 
firms that have commercial relations with Israel when determining 
whether to sell weapons to said country;
                    (C) report to Congress on the specific steps being 
                taken by the President to bring about a public 
                renunciation of the Arab primary boycott of Israel and 
                the secondary and tertiary boycotts of American firms 
                that have commercial relations with Israel and to expand 
                the process of normalizing ties between Arab League 
                countries and Israel; and
                    (D) encourage the allies and trading partners of the 
                United States to enact laws prohibiting businesses from 
                complying with the boycott and penalizing businesses 
                                     that do comply.

before using the authority of this subsection to furnish assistance

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-185]]

shall notify the Committees on Appropriations under the regular 
notification procedures of those committees, including a description of

appropriated to carry out title I of such Act and made available 
pursuant to this subsection may be obligated or expended except as 
provided through the regular notification procedures of the Committees

        Act of 1961 or any comparable provision of law prohibiting

has an agreement providing the United States with base rights or base 
access in that country, if the President determines that the recipient 
for which funds are earmarked has significantly reduced its military or 
economic cooperation with the United States since enactment of the 
Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs 
Appropriations Act, 1991; however, before exercising the authority of 
this subsection with regard to a base rights or base access country

administered by the Agency for International Development that are 
earmarked for particular programs or activities by this or any other Act 
shall be extended for an additional fiscal year if the Administrator of 
such agency determines and reports promptly to the Committees on 
Appropriations that the termination of assistance to a country or a 
significant change in circumstances makes it unlikely that such 
earmarked funds can be obligated during the original period of 
availability: Provided, That such

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-186]]

earmarked funds that are continued available for an additional fiscal 
      year shall be obligated only for the purpose of such earmark.

    Sec. 545. Ceilings and earmarks contained in this Act shall not be

furnishing such assistance is important to the national interests of the 
United States.
    (c) Whenever the waiver of subsection (b) is exercised, the 
President shall submit to the appropriate congressional committees a 
report with respect to the furnishing of such assistance. Any such

respect to United States personnel, the operational benefits to United 
States forces derived from each such training activity and the United

appropriate.
    (b) For purposes of this section a report to Congress shall be 
deemed to mean a report to the Appropriations and Foreign

Relations Committees of the Senate and the Appropriations and 
   International Relations Committees of the House of Representatives.

      Sec. 582. (a) of the funds made available under the heading

to exceed $35,000,000 may be made available for the Korean Peninsula 
Energy Development Organization (hereafter referred to in this section

            (1)(A) the parties to the Agreed Framework have taken and 
        continue to take demonstrable steps to assure that progress is 
        made on the implementation of the January 1, 1992, Joint 
        Declaration on the Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in 
        which the government of North Korea has committed not to test, 
        manufacture, produce, receive, possess, store, deploy or use 
        nuclear weapons;
            (B) the parties to the Agreed Framework have taken and 
        continue to take demonstrable steps to assure that progress is 
        made on the implementation of the North-South dialogue; and
            (C) North Korea is complying with all provisions of the 
        Agreed Framework and with the Confidential Minute between North 
        Korea and the United States;

        North Korea's development and export of ballistic missiles; and
      (c) Of the funds made available for KEDO, up to $20,000,000 may be 
made available on or after June 1, 1999, if, thirty days prior to such 
obligation of funds, the President certifies and so reports to Congress

        with North Korea on implementation of the Joint Declaration on 
        the Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula;
            (2) the United States has reached agreement with North Korea 
        on the means for satisfying U.S. concerns regarding suspect 
        underground construction; and;
            (3) the United States is making significant progress on 
        reducing and eliminating the North Korean ballistic missile 
        threat, including its ballistic missile exports.
      (d) The President may waive the certification requirements of 
subsections (b) and (c) if the President determines that it is vital to 
the national security interests of the United States and

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-202]]

provides written policy justifications to the appropriate congressional 
committees prior to his exercise of such waiver. No funds may be 
obligated for KEDO until 30 days after submission to Congress of such 
waiver.

    (e) Not later than January 1, 1999, the President shall name a 
``North Korea Policy Coordinator'', who shall conduct a full and 
complete interagency review of United States policy toward North Korea, 
shall provide policy direction for negotiations with North Korea related

annual presentation for appropriations) providing a full and detailed 
accounting of the fiscal year request for the United States contribution 
to KEDO, the expected operating budget of the KEDO, to include unpaid 
debt, proposed annual costs associated with heavy fuel oil purchases, 
and the amount of funds pledged by other donor nations and organizations 
to support KEDO activities on a per country basis, and other related 
activities.
      (g) The Secretary of Defense shall submit to the appropriate 
congressional committees an annual report on the degree to which KEDO's 
mission and the Agreed Framework continue to promote important United 
States national security interests, contribute to delaying North Korean 
indigenous development of nuclear weapons-related technology, and 
     positively impact the level of tension on the Korean Peninsula.

    Sec. 583. <<NOTE: 22 USC 262r note.>> (a) Notwithstanding any other 
provision of law, each annual report required by subsection 1701(a) of 
the International Financial Institutions Act, as amended (Public Law 95-
118, 22 U.S.C. 262r), shall comprise--
            (1) an assessment of the effectiveness of the major policies 
        and operations of the international financial institutions;
            (2) the major issues affecting United States participation;
            (3) the major developments in the past year;
            (4) the prospects for the coming year;
            (5) the progress made and steps taken to achieve United 
        States policy goals (including major policy goals embodied in 
        current law) with respect to the international financial 
        institutions; and
            (6) such data and explanations concerning the effectiveness, 
        operations, and policies of the international financial 
        institutions, such recommendations concerning the international 
        financial institutions, and such other data and material as the 
        Chairman may deem appropriate.

    (b) The requirements of Sections 1602(e), 1603(c), 1604(c), and 
1701(b) of the International Financial Institutions Act, as amended 
(Public Law 95-118, 22 U.S.C. 262p-1, 262p-2, 262p-3 and 262(r)), 
Section 2018(c) of the International Narcotics Control Act of 1986, as 
amended (Public Law 99-570, 22 U.S.C. 2291 note), Section 407(c) of the 
Foreign Debt Reserving Act of 1989 (Public Law 101-240, 22 U.S.C. 2291 
note), Section 14(c) of the Inter-American Development Bank Act, as 
amended (Public Law 86-147, 22 U.S.C. 283j-1(c)), and Section 1002 of

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-203]]

Emerging Eurasian Democracies and Open Markets Support Act of 1992 
(Public Law 102-511) (22 U.S.C. 286ll(b)) shall no longer apply to the 
                    contents of such annual reports.

    Sec. 584. None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available 
by this Act may be used to provide equipment, technical support, 
consulting services, or any other form of assistance to the Palestinian 
                        Broadcasting Corporation.

    Sec. 585. (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) Iraq is continuing efforts to mask the extent of its 
        weapons of mass destruction and missile programs;
            (2) proposals to relax the current international inspection 
        regime would have potentially dangerous consequences for 
        international security; and
            (3) Iraq has demonstrated time and again that it cannot be 
        trusted to abide by international norms or by its own 
        agreements, and that the only way the international community 
        can be assured of Iraqi compliance is by ongoing inspection.

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the international agencies charged with inspections in 
        Iraq--the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the 
        United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM) should maintain 
        vigorous inspections, including surprise inspections, within 
        Iraq; and
            (2) the United States should oppose any efforts to ease the 
        inspections regimes on Iraq until there is clear, credible 
        evidence that the Government of Iraq is in full compliance with 
        all relevant United Nations' resolutions.

    (c) Report.--Not later than 30 days after the date of enactment of 
this Act, the President shall submit a report to Congress on the United 
States Government's assessment of Iraq's nuclear and other weapons of 
mass destruction programs and its efforts to move toward procurement of 
nuclear weapons and the means to deliver weapons of mass destruction. 
The report shall also--
            (1) assess the United States view of the International 
        Atomic Energy Agency's action team reports and other IAEA 
        efforts to monitor the extent and nature of Iraq's nuclear 
        program; and
            (2) include the United States Government's opinion on the 
        value of maintaining the ongoing inspection regime rather than 
                 replacing it with a passive monitoring system.

    Sec. 586. (a) The Congress finds that--
            (1) according to the Department of State, Iran continues to 
        support international terrorism, providing training, financing, 
        and weapons to such terrorist groups as Hizballah, Islamic Jihad 
        and Hamas;
            (2) Iran continues to oppose the Arab-Israeli peace process 
        and refuses to recognize Israel's right to exist;

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-204]]

            (3) Iran continues aggressively to seek weapons of mass 
        destruction and the missiles to deliver them;
            (4) it is long-standing United States policy to offer 
        official government-to-government dialogue with the Iranian 
        regime, such offers having been repeatedly rebuffed by Tehran;
            (5) more than a year after the election of President 
        Khatemi, Iranian foreign policy continues to threaten American 
        security and that of our allies in the Middle East; and
            (6) despite repeated offers and tentative steps toward 
        rapprochement with Iran by the Clinton Administration, including 
        a decision to waive sanctions under the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act 
        and the President's veto of the Iran Missile Proliferation 
        Sanctions Act, Iran has failed to reciprocate in a meaningful 
        manner.

    (b) Therefore it is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) the Administration should make no concessions to the 
        Government of Iran unless and until that government moderates 
        its objectionable policies, including taking steps to end its 
        support of international terrorism, opposition to the Middle 
        East peace process, and the development and proliferation of 
        weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery; and
            (2) there should be no change in United States policy toward 
        Iran until there is credible and sustained evidence of a change 
                              in Iranian policies.

    Sec. 587. <<NOTE: 22 USC 2381 note.>> (a) Establishment of Office.--
There shall be established within the Office of the Administrator of the 
Agency for International Development, an Office of Security. Such Office 
of Security shall, notwithstanding any other provision of law except 
section 207 of the Foreign Service Act of 1980 and section 103 of Public 
Law 199-339, have the responsibility for the supervision, direction, and 
control of all security activities relating to the programs and 
operations of that Agency.

    (b) Transfer and Allocation of Appropriations and Personnel.--There 
are transferred to the
Office of Security all security functions exercised by the Office of 
Inspector General of the Agency for International Development exercised 
before the date of enactment of this Act. The Administrator shall 
transfer from the Office of the Inspector General of such Agency to the 
Office of Security established by subsection (a), the personnel 
(including the Senior Executive Service position designated for the 
Assistant Inspector General for Security), assets, liabilities, grants, 
contracts, property, records, and unexpended balances of appropriations, 
and other funds held, used, available to, or to be made available in 
connection with such functions. Unexpended balances of appropriations, 
and other funds made available or to be made available in connection 
with such functions, shall be transferred to and merged with funds 
appropriated by this Act under the heading ``Operating Expenses of the 
Agency for International Development''.

    (c) Transfer of Employees.--Any employee in the career service who 
is transferred pursuant to this section shall be placed in a position in 
the Office of Security established by subsection (a) which is comparable 
to the position the employee held in the Office of the Inspector General 
of the Agency for International Development.

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-205]]

    Sec. 588. (a) Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) North Korea has been active in developing new 
        generations of medium-range and intermediate-range ballistic 
        missiles, including both the Nodong and Taepo Dong class 
        missiles.
            (2) North Korea is not an adherent to the Missile Technology 
        Control Regime, actively cooperates with Iran and Pakistan in 
        ballistic missile programs, and has declared its intention to 
        continue to export ballistic missile technology.
            (3) North Korea has shared technology involved in the Taepo 
        Dong I missile program with Iran, which is concurrently 
        developing the Shahab-3 intermediate-range ballistic missile.
            (4) North Korea is developing the Taepo Dong II 
        intermediate-range ballistic missile, which is expected to have 
        sufficient range to put at risk United States territories, 
        forces, and allies throughout the Asia-Pacific area.
            (5) Multistage missiles like the Taepo Dong class missile 
        can ultimately be extended to intercontinental range.
            (6) The bipartisan Commission to Assess the Ballistic 
        Missile Threat to the United States emphasized the need for the 
        United States intelligence community and United States policy 
        makers to
review the methodology by which they assess foreign missile programs in 
order to guard against surprise developments with respect to such 
programs.

    (b) It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) North Korea should be forcefully condemned for its 
        August 31, 1998, firing of a Taepo Dong I intermediate-range 
        ballistic missile over the sovereign territory of another 
        country, specifically Japan, an event that demonstrated an 
        advanced capability for employing multistage missiles, which are 
        by nature capable of extended range, including intercontinental 
        range;
            (2) the United States should reassess its cooperative space 
        launch programs with countries that continue to assist North 
        Korea and Iran in their ballistic missile and cruise missile 
        programs;
            (3) any financial or technical assistance provided to North 
        Korea should take into account the continuing conduct by that 
        country of activities which destabilize the region, including 
        the missile firing referred to in paragraph (1), continued 
        submarine incursions into South Korean territorial waters, and 
        violations of the demilitarized zone separating North Korea and 
        South Korea;
            (4) the recommendations of the Commission to Assess the 
        Ballistic Missile Threat to the United States should be 
        incorporated into the analytical processes of the United States 
        intelligence community as soon as possible; and
            (5) the United States should accelerate cooperative theater 
                      missile defense programs with Japan.

    Sec. 589. (a) Establishment of Program.--Chapter 1 of part I of the 
Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 (22 U.S.C. 2151 et seq.) is amended by 
adding at the end the following:

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-206]]

``SEC. 129. <<NOTE: 22 USC 2151aa.>> PROGRAM TO PROVIDE TECHNICAL 
            ASSISTANCE TO FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS AND FOREIGN CENTRAL BANKS

        Development, is authorized to establish a program to provide 
        technical assistance to foreign governments and foreign central

        market-oriented processes and sustainable private sector growth.
            ``(2) Additional requirements.--To the extent practicable, 
        such technical assistance shall be designed to establish--

            ``(3) shall consult with the heads of appropriate Executive 
        agencies of the United States, including the Secretary of State

        financial institutions to avoid duplicative efforts with respect 
        to those foreign countries for which such agencies or

                      imprisoned for their political views;
                    (F) supporting efforts to establish a timetable for 
                elections and building democracy by strengthening 
                political parties and institutions and the rule of law 
                including the repeal of laws and regulations that 
                discriminate on the basis of religion or ethnicity.

    (b) Report.--Not later than 6 months after the date of enactment of 
this Act, the Secretary of State shall submit to the Committees on 
Appropriations a report containing a description and assessment of the 
actions taken by the Government of the United States and the Government

    (c) Ethnic Violence.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the mistreatment of ethnic Chinese in Indonesia and the 
        criminal acts carried out against them during the May 1998 riots 
        in Indonesia are deplorable and condemned;
            (2) a full and fair investigation of such criminal acts 
        should be completed by the earliest possible date, and those 
        identified as responsible for perpetrating such criminal acts 
        should be brought to justice;
            (3) the investigation by the Government of Indonesia, 
        through its Military Honor Council, of those members of the 
        armed forces of Indonesia suspected of possible involvement in 
        the May 1998 riots, and of any member of the armed forces of 
        Indonesia who may have participated in criminal acts against the 
        people of Indonesia during the riots, is commended and should be 
        supported;
            (4) the Government of Indonesia should take action to 
        assure--
                    (A) the implementation of appropriate measures to 
                prevent ethnic-related violence and rapes in Indonesia 
                and to protect the human rights and physical safety of 
                the ethnic Chinese community in Indonesia; and
                    (B) the provision of just compensation for victims 
                of the rape and violence that occurred during the May 
                1998 riots in Indonesia, including medical care;
            (5) the Administration and the United Nations should 
        continue to support and assist the Government of Indonesia and 
        nongovernmental organizations, in the investigations into the 
        May 1998 riots in Indonesia in order to expedite such 
        investigations.

    (d) Report.--(1) Not later than 6 months after the date of enactment 
of this Act, the Secretary of State shall submit to Congress a report 
containing the following:
            (A) An assessment of--
                    (i) whether or not there was a systematic and 
                organized campaign of violence, including the use of 
                rape, against the ethnic Chinese community in Indonesia 
                during the May 1998 riots in Indonesia; and

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-215]]

                    (ii) the level and degree of participation, if any,

                Indonesia in the riots.
            (B) An assessment of the actions taken by the Government of 
        Indonesia to investigate the May 1998 riots in Indonesia, bring 
        the perpetrators of the riots to justice, and ensure that 
                           similar riots do not recur.

    Sec. 594. <<NOTE: 22 USC 2753 note.>> (a) Notification.--No less 
than 15 days prior to the export to any country identified pursuant to 
subparagraph (C) of any lethal defense article or service in the amount

notification to the Committees on Appropriations and Foreign Relations 
of the Senate and the Committees on Appropriations and International 
Relations of the House of Representatives.

    (b) Content of Notification.--A detailed notification transmitted 
pursuant to subparagraph (a) shall include the same type and quantity of 
information required of a notification submitted pursuant to section 
36(b) of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2776(b)).
    (c) Countries Defined.--This section shall apply to any country that 
is--
            (1) identified in section 521 of the annual appropriations 
        Act for Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related 
        Programs, or a comparable provision in a subsequent 
        appropriations Act; or
            (2) currently ineligible, in whole or in part, under an 
        annual appropriations Act to receive funds for International 
        Military Education and Training or under the Foreign Military 
        Financing Program, excluding high-income countries as defined 
        pursuant to section 546(b) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 
        1961.

    (d) Exclusions.--Information reportable under title V of the 
National Security Act of 1947 is excluded from the requirements of this 
                                section.

    Sec. 595. (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings--
            (1) the December 2, 1980 brutal assault and murder of four 
        American churchwomen by members of the Salvadoran National Guard 
        was covered up and never fully investigated;
            (2) on July 22 and July 23, 1998, Salvadoran authorities 
        granted three of the National Guardsmen convicted of the crimes 
        early release from prison;
            (3) the United Nations Truth Commission for El Salvador 
        determined in 1993 that there was sufficient evidence that the 
        Guardsmen were acting on orders from their superiors;
            (4) in March 1998, four of the convicted Guardsmen confessed 
        that they acted after receiving orders from their superiors;
            (5) recently declassified documents from the State 
        Department show that United States Government officials were 
        aware of information suggesting the involvement of superior 
        officers in the murders;

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-216]]

            (6) United States officials granted permanent residence to a 
        former Salvadoran military official involved in the cover-up of 
        the murders, enabling him to remain in Florida; and
            (7) despite the fact that the murders occurred over 17 years 
        ago, the families of the four victims continue to seek the 
        disclosure of information relevant to the murders.

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) information relevant to the murders should be made 
        public to the fullest extent possible;
            (2) the Secretary of State and the Department of State are 
        to be commended for fully releasing information regarding the 
        murders to the victims' families and to the American public, in 
        prompt response to congressional requests;
            (3) the President should order all other Federal agencies 
        and departments that possess relevant information to make every 
        effort to declassify and release to the victims' families 
        relevant information as expeditiously as possible;
            (4) in making determinations concerning the declassification 
        and release of relevant information, the Federal agencies and 
        departments should presume in favor of releasing, rather than of 
        withholding, such information; and
            (5) the President should direct the Attorney General to 
        review the circumstances under which individuals involved in 
        either the murders or the cover-up of the murders obtained 
        residence in the United States, and the Attorney General should 
        submit a report to the Congress on the results of such review 
                         not later than January 1, 1999.

    Sec. 596. (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) On December 21, 1988, 270 people, including 189 United 
        States citizens, were killed in a terrorist bombing on Pan Am 
        Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.
            (2) Britain and the United States indicted 2 Libyan 
        intelligence agents--Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi and Lamen Khalifa 
        Fhimah--in 1991 and sought their extradition from Libya to the 
        United States or the United Kingdom to stand trial for this 
        heinous terrorist act.
            (3) The United Nations Security Council called for the 
        extradition of the suspects in Security Council Resolution 731 
        and imposed sanctions on Libya in Security Council Resolutions 
        748 and 883 because Libyan leader, Colonel Muammar Qadaffi, 
        refused to transfer the suspects to either the United States or 
        the United Kingdom to stand trial.
            (4) The sanctions in Security Council Resolutions 748 and 
        883 include a worldwide ban on Libya's national airline, a ban 
        on flights into and out of Libya by other nations' airlines, a 
        prohibition on supplying arms, airplane parts, and certain oil 
        equipment to Libya, and a freeze on Libyan government funds in 
        other countries.
            (5) Colonel Qaddafi has continually refused to extradite the 
        suspects to either the United States or the United Kingdom and 
        has insisted that he will only transfer the suspects to a third 
        and neutral country to stand trial.
            (6) On August 24, 1998, the United States and the United 
        Kingdom proposed that Colonel Qadaffi transfer the suspects

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-217]]

        to the Netherlands, where they would stand trial before a 
        Scottish court, under Scottish law, and with a panel of Scottish 
        judges.
            (7) The United States-United Kingdom proposal is consistent 
        with those previously endorsed by the Organization of African 
        Unity, the League of Arab States, the Non-Aligned Movement, and 
        the Islamic Conference.
            (8) The United Nations Security Council endorsed the United 
        States-United Kingdom proposal on August 27, 1998, in United 
        Nations Security Council Resolution 1192.
            (9) The United States Government has stated that this 
        proposal is nonnegotiable and has called on Colonel Qadaffi to 
        respond promptly, positively, and unequivocally to this proposal 
        by ensuring the timely appearance of the two accused individuals 
        in the Netherlands for trial before the Scottish court.
            (10) The United States Government has called on Libya to 
        ensure the production of evidence, including the presence of 
        witnesses before the court, and to comply fully with all the 
        requirements of the United Nations Security Council resolutions.
            (11) Secretary of State Albright has said that the United 
        States will urge a multilateral oil embargo against Libya in the 
        United Nations Security Council if Colonel Muammar Qadaffi does 
        not transfer the suspects to the Netherlands to stand trial.
            (12) The United Nations Security Council will convene on 
        October 30, 1998, to review sanctions imposed on Libya.

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) Colonel Qadaffi should promptly transfer the indicted 
        suspects Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi and Lamen Khalifa Fhimah to the 
        Netherlands to stand trial before the Scottish court;
            (2) the United States Government should remain firm in its 
        commitment not to negotiate with Colonel Qadaffi on any of the 
        details of the proposal approved by the United Nations in United 
        Nations Security Council Resolution 1192; and
            (3) if Colonel Qadaffi does not transfer the indicted 
        suspects Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi and Lamen Khalifa Fhimah to the 
        Netherlands by October 29,
1998, the United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations 
should--
                    (A) introduce a resolution in the United Nations 
                Security Council to impose a multilateral oil embargo 
                against Libya;
                    (B) actively promote adoption of the resolution by 
                the United Nations Security Council; and
                    (C) assure that a vote will occur in the United 
                     Nations Security Council on such a resolution.

    Sec. 597. (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) many children in the United States have been abducted by 
        family members who are foreign nationals and living in foreign 
        countries;

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-218]]

            (2) children who have been abducted by an estranged father 
        are very rarely returned, through legal remedies, from countries 
        that only recognize the custody rights of the father;
            (3) there are at least 140 cases that need to be resolved in 
        which children have been abducted by family members and taken to 
        foreign countries;
            (4) although the Convention on the Civil Aspects of 
        International Child Abduction, done at The Hague on October 25, 
        1980, has made progress in aiding the return of abducted 
        children, the Convention does not address the criminal aspects 
        of child abduction, and there is a need to reach agreements 
        regarding child abduction with countries that are not parties to 
        the Convention; and
            (5) decisions on awarding custody of children should be made 
        in the children's best interest, and persons who violate laws of 
        the United States by abducting their children should not be 
        rewarded by being granted custody of those children.

    (b) Sense of the Congress.--It is the sense of the Congress that the 
United States Government should promote international cooperation in 
working to resolve those cases in which children in the United States 
are abducted by family members who are foreign nationals and taken to 
foreign countries, and in seeing that justice is served by holding 
accountable the abductors for violations of criminal law.

        financing, loans made from the Fund's general resources after 
        the date of the enactment of this section are--
                    (A) made available at an interest rate that reflects 
                an adjustment for risk that is not less than 300 basis

    Sec. 602. (a) The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the 
United States Executive Director at the International Monetary Fund to 
exert the influence of the United States to oppose further disbursement 
of funds to the Republic of Korea under the Republic of Korea's standby 
arrangement of December 4, 1997 (in this section referred to as the 
``Arrangement''), unless there is in effect a certification by the 
Secretary of the Treasury to the appropriate committees that--
            (1) no Fund resources made available pursuant to the 
        Arrangement have been used to provide financial assistance to 
        the semiconductor, steel, automobile, shipbuilding, or textile

            (2) the Fund has neither guaranteed nor underwritten the

        or textile and apparel manufacturers under the Arrangement; and
            (3) officials from the Fund and the Department of the 
        Treasury have monitored the implementation of the provisions 
        contained in the Arrangement, and all of the conditions have 
        either been met or the Republic of Korea has committed itself to 
        fulfill all of these conditions according to an explicit 
        timetable for completion; which timetable has been provided to 
        the Fund and the Department of the Treasury and approved by the 
        Fund.

    (b) Before each disbursement of Fund resources to the Republic of 
Korea under the Arrangement, the Secretary of the Treasury shall report 
to the appropriate committees on whether a certification by the

States Executive Director at the International Monetary Fund to exert 
the influence of the United States to seek the establishment of a 
permanent advisory committee to the Interim Committee of the Board of

national legislatures of the member countries directly represented by

    Sec. 605. (a) The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the 
United States Executive Director at the International Monetary Fund to

compliance.
    (c) Within 6 months after the date of the enactment of this Act, the 
Secretary of the Treasury shall report to the appropriate

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-223]]

committees on the progress made toward achieving the requirements of 
this section.
    (d) On a quarterly basis, the Secretary of the Treasury shall report 
to the appropriate committees on the standby or other arrangements of 
the Fund made during the preceding quarter, identifying separately the 
arrangements to which the policies described in section 601(4) of this 
  title apply and the arrangements to which such policies do not apply.

    Sec. 606. Not later than <<NOTE: 22 USC 262r note.>> July 15, 1999,

of the United States position in consultations with other governments

implementation of such position with respect to the following issues:
            (1) Adapting the mission and capabilities of the 
        International Monetary Fund to take better account of the 
        increased importance of cross-border capital flows in the world 
        economy and improving the coordination of its responsibilities 
        and activities with those of the International Bank for 
        Reconstruction and Development.
            (2) Advancing measures to prevent, and improve the 
        management of, international financial crises, including by--
                    (A) integrating aspects of national bankruptcy 
                principles into the management of international 
                financial crises where feasible; and
                    (B) changing investor expectations about official 
                rescues, thereby reducing moral hazard and systemic risk 
                in international financial markets,
        in order to help minimize the adjustment costs that the 
        resolution of financial crises may impose on the real economy, 
        in the form of disrupted patterns of trade, employment, and 
        progress in living standards, and reduce the frequency and 
        magnitude of claims on United States taxpayer resources.
            (3) Improving international economic policy cooperation, 
        including among the Group of Seven countries, to take better 
        account of the importance of cross-border capital flows in the 
        determination of exchange rate relationships.
            (4) Improving international cooperation in the supervision 
        and regulation of financial institutions and markets.
            (5) Strengthening the financial sector in emerging 
        economies, including by improving the coordination of financial 
        sector liberalization with the establishment of strong public 
        and private institutions in the areas of prudential supervision, 
        accounting and disclosure conventions, bankruptcy laws and 
        administrative procedures, and the collection and dissemination 
        of economic and financial statistics, including the maturity 
        structure of foreign indebtedness.
            (6) Advocating that implementation of European Economic and 
        Monetary Union and the advent of the European Currency Unit, or 
        euro, proceed in a manner that is consistent with

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-224]]

        strong global economic growth and stability in world financial 
                                    markets.

    Sec. 128. Charleston, <<NOTE: 16 USC 461 note.>> Arkansas National 
Commemorative Site. (a) The Congress finds that--
            (1) the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision of Brown v. Board 
        of Education, which mandated an end to the segregation of public 
        schools, was one of the most significant Court decisions in the 
        history of the United States;
            (2) the Charleston Public School District in Charleston, 
        Arkansas, in September, 1954, became the first previously-
        segregated public school district in the former Confederacy to 
        integrate following the Brown decision;
            (3) the orderly and peaceful integration of the public 
        schools in Charleston served as a model and inspiration in the 
        development of the Civil Rights movement in the United States, 
        particularly with respect to public education; and
            (4) notwithstanding the important role of the Charleston 
        School District in the successful implementation of integrated 
        public schools, the role of the district has not been adequately 
        commemorated and interpreted for the benefit and understanding 
        of the nation.

    (b) The Charleston Public School complex in Charleston, Arkansas is 
hereby designated as the ``Charleston National Commemorative Site'' in 
commemoration of the Charleston schools' role as the first public school 
district in the South to integrate following the 1954 United States 
Supreme Court decision, Brown v. Board of Education.
    (c) The Secretary, after consultation with the Charleston Public 
School District, shall establish an appropriate commemorative monument 
and interpretive exhibit at the Charleston National Commemorative Site 
to commemorate the 1954 integration of Charleston's public schools.
    Sec. 129. (a) In the event any tribe returns appropriations made 
available by this Act to the Bureau of
 Indian Affairs for distribution to other tribes, this action shall not 
diminish the Federal Government's trust responsibility to that tribe, or 
the government-to-government relationship between the United States and 
that tribe, or that tribe's ability to access future appropriations.

    (b) The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) shall develop alternative 
methods to fund tribal priority allocations (TPA) base programs in 
future years. The alternatives shall consider tribal revenues and 
relative needs of tribes and tribal members. No later than April 1, 
1999, the BIA shall submit a report to Congress containing its 
recommendations and other alternatives. The report shall also identify 
the methods proposed to be used by BIA to acquire data that is not 
currently available to BIA and any data gathering mechanisms that may be 
necessary to encourage tribal compliance. Notwithstanding any other 
provision of law, for the purposes of developing recommendations, the 
Bureau of Indian Affairs is hereby authorized access to tribal revenue-
related data held by any Federal agency, excluding information held by 
the Internal Revenue Service.
    (c) Except as provided in subsection (d), tribal revenue shall 
include the sum of tribal net income, however derived, from any business 
venture owned, held, or operated, in whole or in part, by any tribal 
entity which is eligible to receive TPA on behalf of the members of any 
tribe, all amounts distributed as per capita payments which are not 
otherwise included in net income, and any income from fees, licenses or 
taxes collected by any tribe.

[[Page 112 STAT. 2681-263]]

    (d) The calculation of tribal revenues shall exclude payments made 
by the Federal Government in settlement of claims or judgments and 
income derived from lands, natural resources, funds, and assets held in 
trust by the Secretary of the Interior.
    (e) In developing alternative TPA distribution methods, the Bureau 
of Indian Affairs will take into account the financial obligations of a 
tribe, such as budgeted health, education and public works service 
costs; its compliance, obligations and spending requirements under the 
Indian Gaming Regulatory Act; its compliance with the Single Audit Act; 
and its compact with its State.

    Sec. 130. None of the funds in this or any other Act shall be used 
to issue a notice of final rulemaking with respect to the valuation of 
crude oil for royalty purposes, including a rulemaking derived from 
proposed rules published in 63 Federal Register 6113 (1998), 62 Federal 
Register 36030, and 62 Federal Register 3742 (1997) until June 1, 1999, 
or until there is a negotiated agreement on the rule.

    Sec. 131. Up to $8,000,000 of funds available in fiscal years 1998 
and 1999 shall be available for grants, not covering more than 33 
percent of the total cost of any acquisition to be made with such funds, 
to States and local communities for purposes of acquiring lands or 
interests in lands to preserve and protect Civil War battlefield sites 
identified in the July 1993 Report on the Nation's Civil War 
Battlefields prepared by the Civil War Sites Advisory Commission. Lands 
or interests in lands acquired pursuant to this section shall be subject 
to the requirements of paragraph 6(f)(3) of the Land and Water 
Conservation Fund Act of 1965 (16 U.S.C. 460l-8(f)(3)).

        of entry that
