                    (A) In general.--Except as provided in subparagraph 
                (B), absent specific statutory authorization under 
                paragraph (1)(B), the President may waive the 
                limitation in paragraph (1) for a period or periods of 
                up to 90 days each in the event that--

                        hostilities in Kosovo or that imminent 
                        involvement by the Armed Forces in hostilities 
                        in Kosovo is clearly indicated by the 
                        circumstances; or
                            (ii) NATO, acting through the Supreme 
                        Allied Commander, Europe, requests the 
                        emergency introduction of United States ground 
                        forces into Kosovo to assist other NATO or non-
                        NATO military forces involved in hostilities or 
                        facing imminent involvement in hostilities.
                    (B) Exception.--The authority of subparagraph (A) 
                may not be exercised more than twice unless Congress 
                enacts a law specifically authorizing the additional 
                exercise of the authority.
            (4) Report on subsequent deployments.--Absent specific 
        statutory authorization under paragraph (1)(B), whenever there 
        is a deployment of 25 or more members of the United States 
        Armed Forces to Kosovo after July 1, 2001 pursuant to a waiver 
        exercised under paragraph (3), the President shall, not later 
        than 96 hours after such deployment begins, submit a report to 
        Congress regarding the deployment. In any such report, the 
        President shall specify--

        together with any certification submitted by the President 
        under paragraph (1), a report containing detailed information 
        on--
                    (A) the commitments and pledges made by each
