SEC. 2. REPORT ON ALTERING UNITED STATES FORCE POSTURE ON THE KOREAN 
              PENINSULA.

    (a) In General.--Not later than 180 days after the date of the 
enactment of this Act, the Director of National Intelligence, in 
consultation with the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense, 
shall submit to the appropriate committees of Congress a report on the 
anticipated diplomatic, military, and intelligence impact of a 
significant reduction or complete withdrawal of United States forces 
from the Republic of Korea (South Korea), or the significant reduction 
or permanent suspension of United States exercises on or around the 
Korean peninsula.
    (b) Content.--The report required by subsection (a) shall include 
each of the following:
            (1) The views of the Governments of Japan, South Korea, and 
        other regional allies and partners regarding the significant 
        reduction or complete withdrawal of United States forces or 
        permanent suspension of exercises.
            (2) The impact that a significant force reduction or 
        permanent suspension of exercises would have on the transition 
        of operational control of United States forces on the Korean 
        peninsula.
            (3) The impact, implications, and resultant shortfalls that 
        a significant reduction or complete withdrawal of United States 
        forces or the significant reduction or permanent suspension of 
        exercises would have in countering non-North Korean actors in 
        northeast Asia, including in the areas of economics, diplomacy, 
        and defense.
            (4) The implications to the long-term security architecture

        of United States forces or a significant reduction or permanent 
        suspension of exercises.
            (5) The implications for United States and allied 
        capabilities to deter and defeat North Korean aggression in 
        cyber, conventional, chemical, and biological warfare of such a 
        significant reduction or complete withdrawal of United States 
        force or a significant reduction or permanent suspension of 
        exercises.
    (c) Appropriate Committees of Congress.--In this section, the term 
``appropriate committees of Congress'' means the Committee on Foreign 
Affairs, the Committee on Armed Services, the Permanent Select
