    the strong support of all Americans.
        (2) Many American service personnel have lost their lives, and 
    many more have been wounded in Iraq; the American people will 
    always honor their sacrifice and honor their families.
        (3) The United States Army and Marine Corps, including their 
    Reserve components and National Guard organizations, together with 
    components of the other branches of the military, are performing 
    their missions while under enormous strain from multiple, extended 
    deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. These deployments, and those 
    that will follow, will have a lasting impact on future recruiting, 
    retention, and readiness of our Nation's all volunteer force.
        (4) Iraq is experiencing a deteriorating problem of sectarian 
    and intrasectarian violence based upon political distrust and 
    cultural differences among factions of the Sunni and Shia 
    populations.
        (5) Iraqis must reach political and economic settlements in 
    order to achieve reconciliation, for there is no military solution. 
    The failure of the Iraqis to reach such settlements to support a 
    truly unified government greatly contributes to the increasing 
    violence in Iraq.
        (6) The responsibility for Iraq's internal security and halting 
    sectarian violence rests with the sovereign Government of Iraq.
        (7) In December 2006, the bipartisan Iraq Study Group issued a 
    valuable report, suggesting a comprehensive strategy that includes 
    new and enhanced diplomatic and political efforts in Iraq and the 
    region, and a change in the primary mission of U.S. forces in Iraq, 
    that will enable the United States to begin to move its combat 
    forces out of Iraq responsibly.
        (8) The President said on January 10, 2007, that ``I've made it 
    clear to the Prime Minister and Iraq's other leaders that America's 
    commitment is not open-ended'' so as to dispel the contrary 
    impression that exists.
        (9) It is essential that the sovereign Government of Iraq set 
    out measurable and achievable benchmarks and President Bush said, 
    on January 10, 2007, that ``America will change our approach to 
    help the Iraqi government as it works to meet these benchmarks''.
        (10) As reported by Secretary of State Rice, Iraq's Policy 
    Committee on National Security agreed upon a set of political, 
    security, and economic benchmarks and an associated timeline in 
    September 2006 that were: (A) reaffirmed by Iraq's Presidency 
    Council on October 6, 2006; (B) referenced by the Iraq Study Group; 
    and (C) posted on the President of Iraq's Web site.
        (11) On April 21, 2007, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates 
    stated that ``our [American] commitment to Iraq is long-term, but 
    it is not a commitment to have our young men and women patrolling 
    Iraq's streets open-endedly'' and that ``progress in reconciliation 
    will be an important element of our evaluation''.
        (12) The President's January 10, 2007, address had three 
    components: political, military, and economic. Given that 
    significant time has passed since his statement, and recognizing 
    the overall situation is ever changing, Congress must have timely 
    reports to evaluate and execute its constitutional oversight 
    responsibilities.
    (b) Conditioning of Future United States Strategy in Iraq on the 
Iraqi Government's Record of Performance on Its Benchmarks.--
        (1) In general.--
            (A) The United States strategy in Iraq, hereafter, shall be 
        conditioned on the Iraqi government meeting benchmarks, as told 
        to members of Congress by the President, the Secretary of 
        State, the Secretary of Defense, and the Chairman of the Joint 
        Chiefs of Staff, and reflected in the Iraqi Government's 
        commitments to the United States, and to the international 
        community, including:
                (i) Forming a Constitutional Review Committee and then 
            completing the constitutional review.

            ensure that the energy resources of Iraq benefit Sunni 
            Arabs, Shia Arabs, Kurds, and other Iraqi citizens in an 
            equitable manner.
                (iv) Enacting and implementing legislation on 
            procedures to form semi-autonomous regions.
                (v) Enacting and implementing legislation establishing 
            an Independent High Electoral Commission, provincial 
            elections law, provincial council authorities, and a date 
            for provincial elections.
                (vi) Enacting and implementing legislation addressing 
            amnesty.
                (vii) Enacting and implementing legislation 
            establishing a strong militia disarmament program to ensure 
            that such security forces are accountable only to the 
            central government and loyal to the Constitution of Iraq.
                (viii) Establishing supporting political, media, 
            economic, and services committees in support of the Baghdad 
            Security Plan.
                (ix) Providing three trained and ready Iraqi brigades 
            to support Baghdad operations.
                (x) Providing Iraqi commanders with all authorities to 
            execute this plan and to make tactical and operational 
            decisions, in consultation with U.S commanders, without 
            political intervention, to include the authority to pursue 
            all extremists, including Sunni insurgents and Shiite 
            militias.
                (xi) Ensuring that the Iraqi Security Forces are 
            providing even handed enforcement of the law.
                (xii) Ensuring that, according to President Bush, Prime 
            Minister Maliki said ``the Baghdad security plan will not 
            provide a safe haven for any outlaws, regardless of [their] 
            sectarian or political affiliation''.
                (xiii) Reducing the level of sectarian violence in Iraq 
            and eliminating militia control of local security.
                (xiv) Establishing all of the planned joint security 
            stations in neighborhoods across Baghdad.
                (xv) Increasing the number of Iraqi security forces 
            units capable of operating independently.
                (xvi) Ensuring that the rights of minority political 
            parties in the Iraqi legislature are protected.
                (xvii) Allocating and spending $10 billion in Iraqi 
            revenues for reconstruction projects, including delivery of 
            essential services, on an equitable basis.
                (xviii) Ensuring that Iraq's political authorities are 
            not undermining or making false accusations against members 
            of the Iraqi Security Forces.
            (B) The President shall submit reports to Congress on how 
        the sovereign Government of Iraq is, or is not, achieving 
        progress towards accomplishing the aforementioned benchmarks, 
        and shall advise the Congress on how that assessment requires, 
        or does not require, changes to the strategy announced on 
        January 10, 2007.
        (2) Reports required.--
            (A) The President shall submit an initial report, in 
        classified and unclassified format, to the Congress, not later 
        than July 15, 2007, assessing the status of each of the

        submit the report to Congress.
            (C) If the President's assessment of any of the specific

        shall include in that report a description of such revisions to 
        the political, economic, regional, and military components of 
        the strategy, as announced by the President on January 10, 
        2007. In addition, the President shall include in the report,

    (e) Independent Assessments.--
        (1) Assessment by the comptroller general.--

        credentials and expertise in military affairs, to prepare an

                (i) The readiness of the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) to 
            assume responsibility for maintaining the territorial 
            integrity of Iraq, denying international terrorists a safe 
            haven, and bringing greater security to Iraq's 18 provinces 
            in the next 12 to 18 months, and bringing an end to

            intelligence capabilities, and logistics capacity of the 
            ISF.
                (iii) The likelihood that, given the ISF's record of 
            preparedness to date, following years of training and 
            equipping by U.S. forces, the continued support of U.S. 
            troops will contribute to the readiness of the ISF to 
            fulfill the missions outlined in clause (i).
            (B) Report.--Not later than 120 days after the enactment of 
        this Act, the designated private sector entity shall provide an

    report verifying compliance with each of the requirements of 
    subsection (a) of section 350 of Public Law 107-87, including

    compliance with such laws and regulations; and
        (2) the Secretary of Transportation shall--
            (A) take such action as may be necessary to address any 
        issues raised in the report of the Inspector General under

            pilot program and compare any change in the level of motor 
            carrier safety as a result of the pilot program; and

            regulations, including the commercial drivers license 
            requirements, for which the Secretary of Transportation 
            will accept compliance with a corresponding Mexican law or 
            regulation as the equivalent to compliance with the United 
            States law or regulation, including for each law or 
            regulation an analysis as to how the corresponding United 
            States and Mexican laws and regulations differ.
    (c) During and following the pilot program described in subsection 
(a), the Inspector General of the Department of Transportation shall 
monitor and review the conduct of the pilot program and submit to 
Congress and the Secretary of Transportation an interim report, 6 
months after the commencement of the pilot program, and a final report, 
within 60 days after the conclusion of the pilot program. Such reports

    mechanisms to determine whether the pilot program is having any

    border operations beyond United States municipalities and 
    commercial zones on the United States-Mexico border.
    (d) In the event that the Secretary of Transportation in any fiscal 
year seeks to grant operating authority for the purpose of initiating 
cross-border operations beyond United States municipalities and 
commercial zones on the United States-Mexico border either with Mexico-
domiciled motor coaches or Mexico-domiciled commercial motor vehicles 
carrying placardable quantities of hazardous materials, such activities 
shall be initiated only after the conclusion of a separate pilot 
program limited to vehicles of the pertinent type. Each such separate 
pilot program shall follow the same requirements and processes 
stipulated under subsections (a) through (c) of this section and shall 
be planned, conducted and evaluated in concert with the Department of 
Homeland Security or its Inspector General, as appropriate, so as to 
address any and all security concerns associated with such cross-border

    (a) Assistance Available.--There are hereby appropriated to the 
Secretary of Agriculture such sums as are necessary, to remain 
available until expended, to make emergency financial assistance 
available to producers on a farm that incurred qualifying quantity or 
quality losses for the 2005, 2006, or 2007 crop, due to damaging 
weather or any related condition (including losses due to crop 
diseases, insects, and delayed planting), as determined by the 
Secretary. However, to be eligible for assistance, the crop subject to 
the loss must have been planted before February 28, 2007, or, in the 
case of prevented planting or other total loss, would have been planted 
before February 28, 2007, in the absence of the damaging weather or any 
related condition.
    (b) Election of Crop Year.--If a producer incurred qualifying crop 
losses in more than one of the 2005, 2006, or 2007 crop years, the 
producer shall elect to receive assistance under this section for 
losses incurred in only one of such crop years. The producer may not 
receive assistance under this section for more than one crop year.
    (c) Administration.--
        (1) In general.--Except as provided in paragraph (2), the 
    Secretary of Agriculture shall make assistance available under this

    Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and 
    Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2001 (Public Law 106-387; 114 
    Stat. 1549A-55), including using the same loss thresholds for 
    quantity and economic losses as were used in administering that 
    section, except that the payment rate shall be 42 percent of the 
    established price, instead of 65 percent.
        (2) Loss thresholds for quality losses.--In the case of a 
    payment for quality loss for a crop under subsection (a), the loss 
    thresholds for quality loss for the crop shall be determined under 
    subsection (d).
    (d) Quality Losses.--
        (1) In general.--Subject to paragraph (3), the amount of a 
    payment made to producers on a farm for a quality loss for a crop 
    under subsection (a) shall be equal to the amount obtained by 
    multiplying--
            (A) 65 percent of the payment quantity determined under 
        paragraph (2); by
            (B) 42 percent of the payment rate determined under 
        paragraph (3).
        (2) Payment quantity.--For the purpose of paragraph (1)(A), the 
    payment quantity for quality losses for a crop of a commodity on a 
    farm shall equal the lesser of--
            (A) the actual production of the crop affected by a quality 
        loss of the commodity on the farm; or
            (B) the quantity of expected production of the crop 
        affected by a quality loss of the commodity on the farm, using 
        the formula used by the Secretary of Agriculture to determine 
        quantity losses for the crop of the commodity under subsection 
        (a).
        (3) Payment rate.--For the purpose of paragraph (1)(B) and in 
    accordance with paragraphs (5) and (6), the payment rate for 
    quality losses for a crop of a commodity on a farm shall be equal 
    to the difference between--
            (A) the per unit market value that the units of the crop 
        affected by the quality loss would have had if the crop had not 
        suffered a quality loss; and
            (B) the per unit market value of the units of the crop 
        affected by the quality loss.
        (4) Eligibility.--For producers on a farm to be eligible to 
    obtain a payment for a quality loss for a crop under subsection 
    (a), the amount obtained by multiplying the per unit loss 
    determined under paragraph (1) by the number of units affected by 
    the quality loss shall be at least 25 percent of the value that all 
    affected production of the crop would have had if the crop had not 
    suffered a quality loss.
        (5) Marketing contracts.--In the case of any production of a 
    commodity that is sold pursuant to one or more marketing contracts 
    (regardless of whether the contract is entered into by the 
    producers on the farm before or after harvest) and for which 
    appropriate documentation exists, the quantity designated in the 
    contracts shall be eligible for quality loss assistance based on 
    the one or more prices specified in the contracts.
        (6) Other production.--For any additional production of a 
    commodity for which a marketing contract does not exist or for 
    which production continues to be owned by the producer, quality 
    losses shall be based on the average local market discounts for 
    reduced quality, as determined by the appropriate State committee 
    of the Farm Service Agency.
        (7) Quality adjustments and discounts.--The appropriate State 
    committee of the Farm Service Agency shall identify the appropriate 
    quality adjustment and discount factors to be considered in

            (A) the average local discounts actually applied to a crop; 
        and
            (B) the discount schedules applied to loans made by the 
        Farm Service Agency or crop insurance coverage under the 
        Federal Crop Insurance Act (7 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.).

    vegetables, other specialty crops, and field crops.

    this section to a producer for losses to a crop, together with the 
    amounts specified in paragraph (2) applicable to the same crop, may 
    not exceed 95 percent of what the value of the crop would have been 
    in the absence of the losses, as estimated by the Secretary of 
    Agriculture.

    (1), the Secretary shall include the following:

        estimated by the Secretary.

    policy or plan of insurance for the insurable commodity under the
