    Sec. 1314. (a) Findings Regarding Progress in Iraq, the 
Establishment of Benchmarks to Measure That Progress, and Reports to 
Congress.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) Over 145,000 American military personnel are currently 
        serving in Iraq, like thousands of others since March 2003, with 
        the bravery and professionalism consistent with the finest 
        traditions of the United States Armed Forces, and are deserving 
        of 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,

[[Page 121 STAT. 122]]

        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.--

                Defense, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,

                      the sect or ethnicity of recipients, and enacting 
                      and implementing legislation to ensure that the 
                      energy resources of Iraq benefit Sunni Arabs, Shia

                          (viii) Establishing supporting political,

                    (A) In general.--There is hereby authorized to be

                501(c)(3), with recognized credentials and expertise in 
                military affairs, to prepare an independent report 
                assessing the following:
                          (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

                          (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).

shall be initiated only after the conclusion of a separate pilot program 
limited to vehicles of the

[[Page 121 STAT. 185]]

                    TITLE IX--AGRICULTURAL ASSISTANCE

SEC. 9001. CROP DISASTER ASSISTANCE.

    (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

[[Page 121 STAT. 212]]

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 section in the same manner as provided under section 815 of 
        the 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.

[[Page 121 STAT. 213]]

            (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 carrying out this subsection, including--
                    (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.).
            (8) Eligible production.--The Secretary of Agriculture shall 
        carry out this subsection in a fair and equitable manner for all 
        eligible production, including the production of fruits and 
        vegetables, other specialty crops, and field crops.

    (e) Payment Limitations.--
            (1) Limit on amount of assistance.--Assistance provided 
        under 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.
            (2) Other payments.--In applying the limitation in paragraph 
        (1), the Secretary shall include the following:
                    (A) Any crop insurance payment made under the 
                Federal Crop Insurance Act (7 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.) or 
                payment under section 196 of the Federal Agriculture 
                Improvement and Reform Act of 1996 (7 U.S.C. 7333) that 
                the producer receives for losses to the same crop.
                    (B) The value of the crop that was not lost (if 
                any), as estimated by the Secretary.

    (f) Eligibility Requirements and Limitations.--The producers on a 
farm shall not be eligible for assistance under this section with 
respect to losses to an insurable commodity or noninsurable commodity if 
the producers on the farm--
            (1) in the case of an insurable commodity, did not obtain a 
        policy or plan of insurance for the insurable commodity under 
        the Federal Crop Insurance Act (7 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.) for the 
        crop incurring the losses;

[[Page 121 STAT. 214]]

            (2) in the case of a noninsurable commodity, did not file 
        the required paperwork, and pay the administrative fee by the

        Reform Act of 1996 (7 U.S.C. 7333) for the crop incurring the
