    Sec. 8117. (a) <<NOTE: Iraq. Afghanistan.>> Findings.--The Senate 
makes the following findings:
            (1) The Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2004 
        (Public Law 108-87), the Department of Defense Appropriations 
        Act, 2005 (Public Law 108-287), and the Emergency Supplemental 
        Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and 
        Tsunami Relief, 2005 (Public Law 109-13) each contain a sense of 
        the Senate provision urging the President to provide in the 
        annual budget requests of the President for a fiscal year under 
        section 1105(a) of title 31, United States Code, an estimate of 
        the cost of ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan 
        in such fiscal year.
            (2) The budget for fiscal year 2006 submitted to Congress by 
        the President on February 7, 2005, requests no funds for fiscal 
        year 2006 for ongoing military operations in Iraq or 
        Afghanistan.
            (3) According to the Congressional Research Service, there 
        exists historical precedent for including the cost of ongoing 
        military operations in the annual budget requests of the 
        President following initial funding for such operations by 
        emergency or supplemental appropriations Acts, including--

[[Page 119 STAT. 2726]]

                    (A) funds for Operation Noble Eagle, beginning in 
                the budget request of President George W. Bush for 
                fiscal year 2005;
                    (B) funds for operations in Kosovo, beginning in the 
                budget request of President George W. Bush for fiscal 
                year 2001;
                    (C) funds for operations in Bosnia, beginning in the 
                budget request of President Clinton for fiscal year 
                1997;
                    (D) funds for operations in Southwest Asia, 
                beginning in the budget request of President Clinton for 
                fiscal year 1997;
                    (E) funds for operations in Vietnam, beginning in 
                the budget request of President Johnson for fiscal year 
                1966; and
                    (F) funds for World War II, beginning in the budget 
                request of President Roosevelt for fiscal year 1943.
            (4) In section 1024(b) of the Emergency Supplemental 
        Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and 
        Tsunami Relief, 2005 (119 Stat. 252), the Senate requested that 
        the President submit to Congress, not later than September 1, 
        2005, an amendment to the budget of the President for fiscal 
        year 2006 setting forth detailed cost estimates for ongoing 
        military operations overseas during such fiscal year.
            (5) The President has yet to submit such an amendment.
            (6) In February 2005, the Congressional Budget Office 
        estimated that fiscal year 2006 cost of ongoing military 
        operations in Iraq and Afghanistan could total $85,000,000,000.

    (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate that--
            (1) any request for funds for a fiscal year after fiscal 
        year 2006 for an ongoing military operation overseas, including 
        operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, should be included in the 
        annual budget of the President for such fiscal year as submitted 
        to Congress under section 1105(a) of title 31, United States 
        Code;
            (2) the President should submit a budget request for fiscal 
        year 2006 setting forth estimates for ongoing military 
        operations overseas during such fiscal year; and
            (3) any funds provided for a fiscal year for ongoing 
        military operations overseas should be provided in 
        appropriations Acts for such fiscal year through appropriations 
        to specific accounts set forth in such appropriations Acts.

    (c) <<NOTE: 10 USC 2554 note.>> Support for Scout Jamborees.--
            (1) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
                    (A) Section 8 of article I of the Constitution of 
                the United States commits exclusively to Congress the 
                powers to raise and support armies, provide and maintain 
                a Navy, and make rules for the government and regulation 
                of the land and naval forces.
                    (B) Under those powers conferred by section 8 of 
                article I of the Constitution of the United States to 
                provide, support, and maintain the Armed Forces, it lies 
                within the discretion of Congress to provide 
                opportunities to train the Armed Forces.
                    (C) The primary purpose of the Armed Forces is to 
                defend our national security and prepare for combat 
                should the need arise.
                    (D) One of the most critical elements in defending 
                the Nation and preparing for combat is training in 
                conditions that simulate the preparation, logistics, and 
                leadership required for defense and combat.
                    (E) Support for youth organization events simulates 
                the preparation, logistics, and leadership required for 
                defending our national security and preparing for 
                combat.
                    (F) For example, Boy Scouts of America's National 
                Scout Jamboree is a unique training event for the Armed 
                Forces, as it requires the construction, maintenance, 
                and disassembly of a ``tent city'' capable of supporting 
                tens of thousands of people for a week or longer. 
                Camporees at the United States Military Academy for Girl 
                Scouts and Boy Scouts provide similar training 
                opportunities on a smaller scale.
            (2) Support.--Section 2554 of title 10, United States Code, 
        is amended by adding at the end the following:

    ``(i)(1) The Secretary of Defense shall provide at least the same 
level of support under this section for a national or world Boy Scout 
Jamboree as was provided under this section for the preceding national 
or world Boy Scout Jamboree.
    ``(2) The Secretary of Defense may waive paragraph (1), if the 
Secretary--

[[Page 119 STAT. 2730]]

            ``(A) determines that providing the support subject to 
        paragraph (1) would be detrimental to the national security of 
        the United States; and
            ``(B) reports such a determination to the Congress in a 
        timely manner, and before such support is not provided.''.

    (d) Equal Access for Youth Organizations.--Section 109 of the 
Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5309) is 
amended--
            (1) in the first sentence of subsection (b) by inserting 
        ``or (e)'' after ``subsection (a)''; and
            (2) by adding at the end the following:

    ``(e) Equal Access.--
            ``(1) Definition.--In this subsection, the term `youth 
        organization' means any organization described under part B of 
        subtitle II of title 36, United States Code, that is intended to 
        serve individuals under the age of 21 years.
            ``(2) In general.--No State or unit of general local 
        government that has a designated open forum, limited public 
        forum, or nonpublic forum and that is a recipient of assistance 
        under this chapter shall deny equal access or a fair opportunity 
        to meet to, or discriminate against, any youth organization, 
        including the Boy Scouts of America or any group officially 
        affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, that wishes to 
        conduct a meeting or otherwise participate in that designated 
        open forum, limited public forum, or nonpublic forum.''.

        States Code; or
            (2) in an operation or area designated as a combat operation 
        or a combat zone, respectively, by the Secretary of Defense in 
        accordance with the regulations prescribed under subsection (a).

               TITLE IV--HURRICANE EDUCATION RECOVERY ACT

     Subtitle A--Elementary and Secondary Education Hurricane Relief

SEC. 101. FINDINGS; DEFINITIONS.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita have had a 
        devastating and unprecedented impact on students who attended 
        schools in the disaster areas.
            (2) Due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina and 
        Hurricane Rita, a significant number of students have enrolled 
        in schools outside of the area in which they resided, including 
        a significant number of students who enrolled in non-public 
        schools because their parents chose to enroll them in such 
        schools.
            (3) 372,000 students were displaced by Hurricane Katrina. 
        Approximately 700 schools have been damaged or destroyed. Nine 
        States each have more than 1,000 of such displaced students 
        enrolled in their schools. In Texas alone, over 45,000 displaced 
        students have enrolled in schools.
            (4) In response to these extraordinary conditions, this
