                              Clerk's Note

    This committee print provides a compilation of the enacted 
text and applicable explanatory material for the Consolidated 
Appropriations Act, 2019 (H.J. Res. 31, P.L. 116-6).


    This Act consists of 12 divisions related to Appropriations 
matters (divisions A through L). The Act also includes 10 
additional divisions unrelated to appropriations matters 
(divisions M through V). This compilation includes only the 
divisions related to Appropriations matters. It also includes 
the front section of the Act, which contains provisions 
applicable to the entire Act.
    Divisions A through L are the products of negotiations 
between the House and Senate Appropriations Committees on final 
fiscal year 2018 appropriations for all 12 annual 
appropriations bills.
    The legislative text resulting from these negotiations was 
submitted by Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen of the House 
Committee on Appropriations as a House amendment to the Senate 
amendment to an unrelated bill pending in the House, H.R. 1625. 
The House agreed to the measure on March 22, 2018, and the 
Senate agreed to the measure on March 23, 2018.\1\ The 
President signed the legislation on March 23, 2018, and it 
became Public Law 115-141.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ The House agreed to the amendment by a vote of 256-167 (Roll 
Call No. 127). The Senate agreed to the amendment by a vote of 65-32 
(Record Vote No. 63).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Because an ``amendments-between-the-Houses'' process was 
used instead of a conference committee, there is no conference 
report and no ``joint Explanatory Statement of the managers'' 
for H.R. 1625. An Explanatory Statement relating to the House 
amendment of H.R. 1625 was filed by Chairman Frelinghuysen in 
the Congressional Record of March 22, 2018.\2\  Section 4 of 
the Act provides that this Explanatory Statement ``shall have 
the same effect with respect to the allocation of funds and 
implementation of divisions A through L of this Act as if it 
were a joint explanatory statement of a committee of 
conference.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \2\ The Explanatory Statement appears on pages H2045-H2901 in Books 
II and III of the March 22, 2018, Congressional Record.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For the convenience of users, the legislative text of each 
appropriations division is paired with the applicable section 
of the Explanatory Statement.

Committees, along with a justification for why such activities 
are required.
      The Department shall continue to submit quarterly 
obligation plans, which provide transparency to Congress and 
departmental leadership on the status of activities and 
programs. In lieu of the direction in House Report 115-948 
regarding submission of obligation plans under a continuing 
funding resolution, the Department is directed to report the 
amounts actually executed in the first quarter against the 
apportionment level for each component for the first quarter. 
Beginning with the second quarter, the Department shall submit 
plans showing planned and actual obligations by quarter.
      Section 101 of this Act requires the Department's 
submission of a monthly budget and staffing report every 30 
days after the last day of each month. In order to provide 
flexibility at the end of the fiscal year, the Department is 
directed to submit the October 2019 report to the Committees 
not later than December 30, 2019. The Department is also 
reminded that these reports are to be posted on the 
Department's website.
      OCIO and Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer are 
directed to update the Committees on the status of their cyber

explore firing range solutions for components; provide 
quarterly briefings on summary ratings for all Level 1 and 2 
acquisition programs; and direct components to report to the 
Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO) on obligations and 
expenditures.
      With the adoption of a common appropriations structure, 
the Department is now poised to standardize its periods of 
availability (POAs) to allow for more consistent planning, 
programming, budgeting, and execution for three of the four 
major appropriation account types: Operations and Support 
(O&S); Procurement, Construction, and Improvements (PC&I); and 
Research and Development (R&D). With limited exception, the O&S 
accounts shall have one year of availability; the PC&I accounts 
shall have five years of availability for construction and 
three years for all other activities; and the R&D accounts 
shall have two years of availability. As part of future budget 
requests, the Department shall thoroughly justify any necessary

CBP recruitment and applicant processing, a reduction of 
$17,600,000 from the request, and $20,000,000 for Border Patrol 
relocation and retention, a reduction of $15,098,000 from the 
request. The conferees provide an increase of $20,000,000 for 
the expansion of the National Targeting Center, a decrease of 
$6,896,000 from the request. Additionally, the agreement 
includes a decrease of $35,000,000 from Border Patrol vehicle 
recapitalization.
      Following the recent deaths of migrants in custody, CBP 
promulgated new interim standard operating procedures to 
improve the agency's awareness of migrant welfare and response 
to emergency situations. CBP is directed to brief the 
Committees, within 60 days of the date of enactment of this 
Act, on its progress in establishing more permanent plans, 
standards, and protocols, to include the following: health 
assessment standards and response protocols for medical 
emergencies, including transportation between CBP locations and 
to hospitals or other medical response sites; requirements for 
ensuring that CBP provides water, nutrition, hygiene, and 
sanitation needs of migrants in temporary CBP custody; 
standards for temporary holding facilities that ensure such 
facilities are humane and used appropriately for single adults, 
families, and unaccompanied children; protocols for responding 
to surges in migrants crossing the border; and a plan for 
providing training to federal and contract personnel who 
interact with migrants in CBP custody. As part of the briefing, 
CBP shall also present a schedule for finalizing and 
implementing these plans, protocols, and standards; estimates 
of the associated short-term and longer-term funding 
requirements; and any changes to legal authorities that might 
be necessary. To facilitate these additional requirements, the 
conferees provide $192,700,000 above the request to include 
$128,000,000 for contract medical professionals, $40,200,000 
for increased consumable commodities such as food, infant 
formula and diapers; and $24,500,000 for increased 
transportation between CBP facilities.
      When CBP is responsible for the custody of siblings who 
are unaccompanied alien children, the Commissioner shall, to 
the extent practicable and when it is in the best interest of 
the children, place such siblings in the same facility and keep 
such siblings together before the Department of Health and 
Human Services assumes custody pursuant to 8 U.S.C. 1232(b). 
When considering whether a family should remain together while 
in custody, the Commissioner should consider the criminal 
history of the parent, safety and comfort of the child, 
immigration history, and physical and mental health of all 
members of the family. DHS is directed to ensure, when 
appropriate and feasible, that separated family units are 
reunited and transferred together prior to removal, release 
from CBP custody, or transfer to Immigration and Customs 
Enforcement custody.
      As directed in the explanatory statement accompanying 
Public Law 115-141, CBP shall continue to brief the Committees 
quarterly on its progress toward the development of a 
comprehensive assessment of CBP-wide capability gaps, to 
include personnel, and directs CBP to brief monthly on efforts 
to develop and utilize a Border Patrol workforce staffing model 
and to continue these briefings until the model is mature and 
used to allocate personnel.
      Also as directed in the explanatory statement 
accompanying Public Law 115-141, CBP shall continue to post to 
its website a combined table of CBP interdictions of currency 
and major categories of drugs, delineated by seizures at and 
between the Ports of Entry (POEs), and at checkpoints.
      As previously directed in House Report 115-239, CBP shall 
continue to report to the Committees the following: the number 
of detainees held by CBP for more than 48 and 72 hours, 
respectively; allegations related to employee corruption and 
use of force abuses; and checkpoint, transportation check, and 
roving patrol stop operations. This information should be 
updated monthly and should include a list of all CBP facilities 
used for temporarily detaining aliens, including the year-to-
date average daily population and the daily population at these 
facilities at the time of publication.
      The conferees direct CBP to provide regular updates on 
the implementation of the working group convened to improve 
coordination between U.S. Border Patrol and AMO.
      Within 90 days of the date of enactment of this Act, CBP 
shall brief the Committees on its search and rescue efforts for 
fiscal year 2018, as detailed in House Report 115-239, with a 
particular emphasis on the Border Patrol's policies, 
methodology, and oversight related to how migrant deaths are 
counted. Additionally, CBP is directed to report the death of 
any individual in CBP custody, in the temporary custody of 
other law enforcement agencies on behalf of CBP, or subsequent 
to the use of force by CBP personnel within 24 hours, including 
relevant details regarding the circumstances of the fatality.
      As directed in House Report 115-948, CBP shall provide a 
briefing to the Committees on the results of the Incident-
Driven Video Recording Systems pilot upon its completion and 
assessment, including details on lessons learned for policy, 
privacy, and resource requirements.
      The conferees direct CBP to provide the Committees with 
data pertaining to the number and efficacy of roving patrol 
stops and to release this data publicly on a semiannual basis, 
including a description of CBP policies governing enforcement 
actions of this nature; the total number of roving patrol stops 
made by CBP personnel, including the number resulting in 
arrest; and the date, location, duration, type of, and reason 
for each roving patrol stop and each resulting arrest. All 
personally identifiable information about specific individuals 
shall be redacted from these reports.
      The conferees direct the Department to submit a report 
that details its prioritization of POE infrastructure capital 
investment projects, the methods and models used to determine 
prioritization, and an overview of Public-Private Partnership 
agreements. The conferees encourage CBP to work with the 
General Services Administration and the Office of Management 
and Budget on the annual 5-year Land POEs modernization plan, 
which is based on CBP's operational priorities and should 
include plans to complete the modernization of pre-9/11 POEs 
along the northern border. Specific attention should be paid to 
the health, safety, and welfare needs of CBPOs.
      The conferees remain concerned with the duty drawback 
program, including the Accelerated Payment privilege and 
directs CBP to comply with the direction in House Report 115-
948.
      To improve oversight on the execution of funding for 
personnel, CBP is directed to submit a report not later than 15 
days after the end of each month on staffing numbers, to 
include gains and losses by pay period during the month.
      The conferees direct GAO to conduct a study and report to 
the Committees within 240 days of the date of enactment of this 
Act, on the advantages and disadvantages of the current 
retrospective duty system in comparison to those of a 
prospective duty system, with the goal of minimizing 
uncollected duties.
      CBP and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are 
directed to jointly brief the Committees on current challenges 
related to the implementation of section 289 of the Immigration 
and Nationality Act, related to the right of entry of American 
Indians into the United States from Canada. The briefing shall 
include legislative options for how to more equitably implement 
the intent of section 289 while also addressing appropriate 
security concerns. The Department shall also make this briefing 
available to the House Judiciary Committee and the Senate 
Committee on the Judiciary, upon request.

              PROCUREMENT, CONSTRUCTION, AND IMPROVEMENTS

      The conference agreement provides $2,515,878,000 for 
procurement, construction, and improvements, an increase of 
$674,330,000 above the request. Of the total, $870,656,000 is 
available until September 30, 2021, and $1,645,222,000 is 
available until September 30, 2023.
      The agreement includes $1,375,000,000 for additional 
pedestrian fencing to include $345,000,000 for approximately 11 
miles of levee pedestrian fencing and $1,030,000,000 for 
approximately 44 miles of primary pedestrian fencing in the Rio 
Grande Valley Sector of Texas.
      The conferees also provide $100,000,000 for border 
surveillance technology to include technologies such as fixed 
towers, remote video surveillance systems, mobile surveillance 
capability on the northern border, and innovative towers. The 
conferees note the significant amount of carryover funding 
totaling over $200,000,000 provided in fiscal year 2018 that 
has not been placed on contract which include significant 
balances for cross border tunnel threat; integrated fixed 
towers, linear ground detection including fiber optics, mobile 
video surveillance systems; remote video surveillance systems, 
and small unmanned aerial systems.
      Not later than 30 days prior to any construction contract 
award for physical barriers funded in this Act, CBP shall 
submit a report to the Committees on the estimated amount of 
private property necessary to be obtained, the estimated 
associated cost, efforts to consult with stakeholders, and 
timeline for acquisition.
      The agreement includes $564,000,000 for non-intrusive 
inspection equipment at land ports of entry. Additionally, 
$6,000,000 has been included for outbound enforcement 
equipment; $45,000,000 for inspection equipment at 
international mail and express consignment facilities; and 
$10,000,000 for automated commercial environment enhancements 
to include post core development and collections.
      The conferees include $112,612,000 for airframes and 
sensors, including three multirole enforcement aircraft, and 
$14,500,000 for watercraft, including coastal interceptor 
vessels.
      The conferees provide a total of $270,222,000 for 
construction and facility improvements, an increase of 
$222,000,000 above the request. The amount includes 
$192,000,000 for a new central processing facility in El Paso, 
Texas, $30,000,000 for renovations to the existing McAllen 
Central Processing Center, $33,447,000 for a new Border Patrol 
Station as requested, and $14,775,000 for Office of Field 
Operations facilities as requested. The conferees expect the 
new El Paso facility and renovations to the existing processing 
center in McAllen, Texas, will make them more appropriate for 
use as temporary holding sites for individuals in CBP custody, 
particularly families and unaccompanied children. At a minimum, 
these facilities should be equipped with appropriate 
temperature controls and avoid chain-link fence-type 
enclosures. CBP is also encouraged to use a more appropriate 
blanket type than currently utilized.
      The conferees provide $18,544,000 for revenue 
modernization, as requested.

                U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement

                         OPERATIONS AND SUPPORT

      The conference agreement provides $7,542,153,000 for 
Operations and Support. Of the total amount provided, 
$75,448,000 is made available until September 30, 2020, of 
which $13,700,000 is for the Visa Security Program; $26,498,000 
is for wiretaps that are necessary to support dismantling 
transnational criminal organizations that threaten the national 
security and public safety of the United States; $15,250,000 is 
for half of the increase described below for family case 
management; and $20,000,000 is for half of the increase 
described below for ICE management of immigration cases of 
enrollees in the alternatives to detention program.
      The conference agreement includes $47,250,000 for the 
2019 pay raise and does not assume the use of $207,600,000 in 
Immigration Examination User Fee revenue to partially offset 
costs for eligible activities in this account due to concerns 
with the impact to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services 
(USCIS) operations and the growing backlog in applications for 
immigration benefits. The conference agreement assumes a net 
reduction below the request of $80,578,000 for salaries and 
benefits based on updated payroll analyses provided by U.S. 
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in January of 2019 
indicating that payroll costs to sustain staffing levels 
achieved by the end of fiscal year 2018 would fall short of the 
amounts proposed in the budget request.
      The conferees direct the Department and ICE that while 
Section 503 of this Act provides limited authority to address 
unanticipated, unavoidable detention needs within the 
Operations and Support appropriation, the budgetary impacts of 
any detention and enforcement policy must be carefully 
considered prior to implementation. Accordingly, within 60 days 
of the date of enactment of this Act, and monthly thereafter, 
ICE shall provide a briefing to the Committees on a detailed 
operational and spending plan to show how ICE will execute its 
budget within the funding levels appropriated. Such plan shall 
not assume the use of transfer or reprogramming authorities, 
shall show anticipated budget allocations at the field office 
level, and shall track actual monthly obligations and updated 
projected obligations against the original projections for each 
of the remaining months of the fiscal year. In the event that 
ICE transfers or reprograms funding, these plans shall be 
updated to accompany any notification that is required by 
Section 503.
      Within 90 days of the date of enactment of this Act, ICE 
is directed to brief the Committees on its plan and schedule 
for completing its ongoing evaluation of the potential use of 
body worn cameras in its field enforcement activities. The 
conferees note that CBP has evaluated the use of body worn 
cameras in its operations and encourages ICE to coordinate with 
CBP on lessons learned.
      ICE shall continue to report and make public the 
following, as detailed in House Report 115-239, and shall 
follow the previously directed timeframes unless otherwise 
specified:
       Semi-annual update on UACs who age out while in 
Office of Refugee Resettlement custody;
       Secure Communities report;
       Requirements related to detention facility 
inspections reports;
       Death in custody reporting, with subsequent 
reporting to be released within 90 days of the initial report 
unless additional time is required for redacting personally 
identifiable information;
       Access to facilities;
       Detainee locator information;
       Changes to the current detention facility 
category and inspection framework;
       Compliance with the 2011 Performance Based 
National Detention Standards (PBNDS 2011) and PREA 
requirements; and
       Weekly rate of operations for Custody 
Operations.
      The Department shall continue to submit data on the 
deportation of parents of U.S.-born children semiannually, as 
in prior years, and shall also report semiannually on removals 
of honorably discharged members of the armed services.
      The conferees direct ICE, in conjunction with CBP, USCIS, 
and the Office of the Chief Financial Officer, to provide the 
Committee with regular updates on apprehensions, the average 
daily population (ADP) in ICE detention, asylum claims, the 
number of prosecution referrals to the Department of Justice 
(DOJ), and the number of referrals accepted by DOJ. These 
updates should also include information on how the Department 
is executing its current year and fiscal year 2019 funding 
compared to the enacted appropriations levels.
      Within 60 days of enactment of this Act, the Director 
shall provide one or more national, nonprofit organizations 
that have experience advising on legal resources available to 
immigrants, asylum-seekers, and refugees with the location of 
all over-72 hour detention facilities, including those owned by 
ICE, by contractors, or by units of state or local government 
in the event such organizations are willing to identify pro 
bono immigration legal services providers in the area of each 
facility. ICE shall also display this information on an easily 
accessible area of its website, or provide a link to the 
organizations' websites if such information is provided there. 
To ensure the information is up-to-date, the Director shall 
notify the organizations prior to any change to the inventory 
or location of the above mentioned detention facilities.
      The conferees are concerned about the results of a recent 
Office of Inspector General audit finding that ``[i]nstead of 
holding facilities accountable through financial penalties, ICE 
issued waivers to facilities with deficient conditions, seeking 
to exempt them from complying with certain standards.'' 
Further, the audit revealed that ``ICE has no formal policies 
and procedures to govern the waiver process, has allowed 
officials without clear authority to grant waivers, and does 
not ensure key stakeholders have access to approved waivers.'' 
To ensure appropriate oversight of waiver authority, the ICE 
Director shall have sole authority to approve waivers, and 
shall notify the Committees of such waivers within 3 business 
days of such approval.

                    Homeland Security Investigations

      Domestic Investigations.--The conferees include the 
following increases above the request: $7,200,000 for 
additional Computer Forensics Analysts, including for the Child 
Victim Identification Program; $1,500,000 for paid internships 
for the Human Exploitation Rescue Operative Child-Rescue Corps 
program; $1,300,000 for an interoperable, nationwide 
information sharing platform related to the relationships of 
gang members, the identification of trafficking routes, and 
federal coordination between ICE, CBP, and DOJ; and $2,000,000 
for upgrades to the Sexual Offender Registration and 
Notification Act exchange portal. The conference agreement also 
provides the requested $6,498,000 for additional wiretaps to 
support dismantling Transnational Criminal Organizations that 
threaten the national security and public safety of the United 
States.
      The conferees understand the importance of enhancing the 
capacity of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and its 
partners to investigate criminal activity on the Internet to 
combat opioids/fentanyl. Accordingly, the conferees include an 
increase of $31,605,000 above the request for up to 155 
additional criminal investigators and 72 support personnel 
dedicated to enhancing opioid/fentanyl-related investigations. 
HSI shall brief the Committees not later than 30 days after the 
date of enactment of this Act on its plan for executing these 
funds.
      ICE plays a critical role in investigating criminal 
organizations that traffic individuals into and within the 
United States. The conferees encourage ICE to work with 
appropriate nonprofit organizations and victim service 
providers to improve the training of ICE officers in the field 
to assist in the identification of human trafficking victims 
and provide appropriate referrals to victim service 
organizations.
      The conferees include an increase of $7,500,000 above the 
request for the HSI Victim Assistance Program for additional 
Victim Assistance Specialists (VASs), Forensic Interview 
Specialists, and related personnel. These additional resources 
are intended to ensure that HSI's victim assistance capability 
is commensurate with that of other federal law enforcement 
agencies, with the goal of placing of a VAS with every human 
trafficking task force in which HSI participates.
      The total includes not less than $305,000 for promoting 
public awareness of the child pornography tip line and not less 
than $15,770,000 for investigations of forced labor law 
violations, to include forced child labor. ICE is directed to 
continue to submit an annual report on expenditures and 
performance metrics associated with forced labor law 
enforcement activities.
      The conference agreement provides not less than 
$15,000,000 for intellectual property law enforcement through 
the work of HSI and the National Intellectual Property Rights 
(IPR) Coordination Center. ICE is directed to ensure that the 
National IPR Center is properly staffed to facilitate continued 
enforcement actions against the theft of U.S. intellectual 
property, particularly online, as required in Public Law 114-
125. Based on a new wave of digital copyright piracy involving 
devices and software that connect consumers' televisions 
directly to copyright-theft sites, the conferees direct ICE to 
increase investigations and enforcement to thwart illicit 
streaming involving media boxes and televisions.
      International Investigations.--The conference agreement 
provides an additional $4,780,000 over fiscal year 2018 levels 
for 12 additional special agents for international 
investigations and 2 support staff, whose focus will be to 
enhance opioid/fentanyl-related investigations. The conference 
agreement annualizes growth to overseas operations funded in 
fiscal year 2018, for continued efforts to interrupt the 
illicit movement of people and goods prior to their arrival in 
the United States.

                   Enforcement and Removal Operations

      Custody Operations.--The conference agreement includes 
increases above the request of $12,450,000 for 112 additional 
Health Service Corps staff assigned to detention facilities and 
$4,000,000 to bring detention facility compliance with Prison 
Rape Elimination Act (PREA) requirements up to 97 percent, from 
the current 86 percent.
      In the execution of these activities, ICE is directed to 
ensure that field personnel, including ERO officers, are 
appropriately trained on all agency policies and procedures 
involving detained parents and legal guardians, including ICE's 
directive on the Detention and Removal of Alien Parents or 
Legal Guardians and time of arrest protocols to minimize harm 
to children.
      ICE is directed to prioritize the use of ATD programs for 
families, including family case management, for which the bill 
provides significant additional resources. ICE should continue 
working with the Executive Office for Immigration Review at the 
Department of Justice to prioritize the adjudication timeline 
for the cases of individuals enrolled in ATD, particularly 
those of families and asylum seekers.
      An administrative provision in the bill requires ICE to 
provide weekly reports to the Committees and to the public on 
the average daily population, average length of stay, and total 
year-to-date book-ins of single adults and of members of family 
units detained in ICE custody, delineated by arresting agency; 
the daily counts of single adults and family units in detention 
custody; the number of individuals in detention custody with 
positive fear determinations and the average and median post-
determination length of stay for such individuals; and the 
total number of enrollees in Alternatives to Detention, 
including the Family Case Management Program, along with the 
average length of participation.
      ICE is also directed to make public the following 
statistics, to be updated monthly: the average bond amount for 
detainees; the percentage of detainees released after paying a 
bond; the average length of detention for individuals who are 
released on bond; and the average length of detention for 
individuals offered release on bond who remain in detention 
because they do not pay the bond.
      All forms required to be signed by a detained person must 
be available in both English and Spanish. ICE is directed to 
report to the Committees within 90 days of the date of 
enactment of this Act on a plan and timeline for achieving this 
goal.
      Additionally, ICE is directed to provide a semi-annual 
report to the Committees detailing the number of individuals, 
by field office, who are detained by ICE for removal from the 
United States but are subsequently determined to be U.S. 
Citizens, along with the average and median lengths of stay in 
detention for such individuals. The report should also describe 
ICE's process for adjudicating claims of U.S. citizenship by 
individuals it arrests for removal from the United States; 
major impediments to more quickly resolving such claims; and 
ICE's efforts to mitigate those impediments. The first report 
is due within 90 days of the date of enactment of this Act.
      ICE shall provide a report to the Committees, not later 
than 90 days after the date of enactment of this Act, 
identifying for each detention contract, Inter-governmental 
Service Agreement (IGSA), or Inter-governmental Agreement 
(IGA), the detention standards under which it is inspected and 
the status of its compliance with PREA standards; all fiscal 
year 2018 costs by category, as appropriate; and the number of 
authorized and average number of on-board medical and mental 
health personnel, if any, during the fiscal year. In addition, 
the ICE Director shall continue to report to the Committees at 
least 30 days in advance of entering into any new or 
significantly modified detention contract or other detention 
agreement that does not meet or exceed the Performance-Based 
National Detention Standards 2011, as revised in 2016. Each 
report shall include a justification for why such contract or 
agreement requires different standards.
      Within 30 days of the date of enactment of this Act, ICE 
is directed to brief the Committees on its progress in 
implementing the five recommendations made by OIG in its recent 
report on detention standards (OIG-18-67). In addition, GAO is 
directed to follow-up on the OIG report by examining ICE's 
management and oversight of detention facilities, including the 
extent to which DHS has:
            (1) effective mechanisms in place to monitor 
        compliance with applicable detention facility 
        standards, including implementation of corrective 
        actions; and
            (2) effective processes in place for obtaining and 
        addressing complaints from aliens in detention 
        facilities.
      GAO shall provide a preliminary briefing to the 
Committees on its findings within 180 days of the date of 
enactment of this Act.
      Individuals detained in ICE detention facilities can 
voluntarily participate in work programs at those facilities, 
doing jobs such as cooking, laundry, and providing janitorial 
services. OIG is directed to review ICE policies and oversight 
of contract detention facilities related to detainee work 
programs, with a particular focus on how ICE can ensure that 
such work is strictly voluntary.
      ICE should ensure that operators of family detention 
facilities do not prevent co-sleeping by parents and their 
young children, which can be a source of comfort to children in 
unfamiliar circumstances.
      Within 30 days of the date of enactment of this Act and 
monthly thereafter, ICE shall report to the Committees on the 
fiscal year-to-date criminality breakdown of the individuals in 
its custody, as well as the estimated criminality breakdown 
associated with its fiscal year-to-date average daily 
population, and the criminality breakdown of its daily 
population as of the date of the report.
      Criminal Alien Program.--ICE is directed to ensure that 
every 287(g) jurisdiction has established, and routinely and 
formally meets with, steering committees of external 
stakeholders to discuss the performance and oversight of 
287(g)-designated officers. ICE shall continue to provide an 
annual 287(g) report, as detailed in House Report 115-239, 
which should also describe any plans for future expansion of or 
changes to the use of its 287(g) authority.
      The conferees also expect ICE, the Office of Inspector 
General (OIG), and the Office for Civil Rights and Civil 
Liberties to continue providing rigorous oversight of the 
287(g) program, and directs ICE to notify the Committees prior 
to implementing any significant changes to the program, 
including any changes to training requirements, data 
collection, or selection criteria.
      Alternatives to Detention.--The conferees include 
increases above the request of $28,000,000 to increase the 
number of participants in Alternatives to Detention (ATD) 
programs to 100,000, up from 82,000 assumed in the request; 
$40,000,000 for additional ICE staffing dedicated to the 
management of ATD immigration cases, particularly those of 
asylum applicants; and $30,500,000 for the Family Case 
Management Program (FCMP), which can help improve compliance 
with immigration court obligations by helping families' access 
community-based support for basic housing, healthcare, legal, 
and educational needs. Within 90 days of the date of enactment 
of this Act, ICE shall brief the Committees on a plan for a 
program within the FCMP managed by non-profit organizations 
that have experience in connecting families with community-
based services.
      ICE is directed to continue to provide performance 
reports to the Committees on the ATD program, as described in 
House Report 114-668. The analysis should also include ATD 
enrollment by field office, type of supervision, and arresting 
agency, as well as the average length of enrollment by type of 
supervision. In addition, the report shall include ICE guidance 
for referral, placement, escalation, and de-escalation 
decisions in ATD programs.
      ICE is directed to ensure that access to ``know your 
rights'' presentations is available at the point of enrollment 
for all ATD programming, and to explore opportunities to work 
with community based organizations that directly provide case 
management services, including referrals to services already 
available in the community that are associated with higher ATD 
compliance rates. ICE shall brief the Committees not later than 
60 days after the date of enactment of this Act on any 
challenges it encounters to achieving this requirement.
      Further, ICE is directed to continue exploring the use of 
available ATD models on an ongoing basis, prioritize the use of 
such detention alternatives for immigrant children and their 
families, where appropriate, and release individuals and their 
family members who pass credible fear screening and do not 
present a public safety or flight risk.
      Within 60 days of the date of enactment of this Act, ICE 
is directed to brief the Committees on an analysis of each 
active Alternatives to Detention program within the last 5 
years. This report shall include compliance with court 
appearances, immigration appointments, and removal orders, cost 
per individual served, response times to requests for legal 
counsel, family contact, and medical treatment (including 
mental health services). This report shall also provide data on 
whether noncompliant ATD participants were actively in the ATD 
program, such as whether participants were expected to be 
wearing monitors at the time of noncompliance.
      Within the total, not less than $3,000,000 is included to 
continue to enable certain aliens on the non-detained docket to 
check-in with ICE via self-service kiosks at ERO field offices. 
The goal of the program is to reduce the time and resources 
that deportation officers devote to managing encounters and 
check-ins with applicable aliens, and allowing those officer 
resources to devote more time and effort to improving 
attendance at immigration hearings and compliance with removal 
orders.
      Transportation and Removal Program.--In recent months, 
ICE has collaborated with organizations that provide temporary 
shelter to migrants released from ICE custody. Within the 
$114,147,000 increase above the fiscal year 2018 funding level 
for the Transportation and Removal Program, ICE is directed to 
provide for the transportation of migrants to such shelters 
based on where collaborating organizations have open sheltering 
capacity, including during surge periods. ICE shall immediately 
notify the Committees in advance of any decision to deny such 
transportation.

                            Mission Support

      The conferees provide an increase above the request of 
$6,975,000 for staffing at the Office of Detention Oversight 
within the Office of Professional Responsibility. ICE is 
directed to increase the number of inspections of over-72 hour 
detention facilities from once every three years to twice per 
year not later than the end of fiscal year 2019.

(FAMS) reflects the fiscal year 2019 requirement, given the 
restoration of funds for VIPR teams. In lieu of the direction 
in the Senate Report 115-283, TSA shall submit semiannual 
reports on FAMS mission coverage, staffing levels, and hiring 
rates.
      As directed in House Report 115-948, TSA shall make 
available a framework for establishing operations centers to 
promote interagency response and coordination at federalized

      TITLE III--PROTECTION, PREPAREDNESS, RESPONSE, AND RECOVERY

            Cybersecurity And Infrastructure Security Agency

      Public Law 115-278 authorized the reorganization of the 
National Protection and Programs Directorate into a new 
Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). In 
concert with that authorization, appropriations for the Office 
of Biometric Identity Management (OBIM) have been realigned to 
the Management Directorate. While the Secretary determines an 
organizational placement for the Federal Protective Service 
(FPS), as directed by Public Law 115-278, funding for FPS is 
provided within CISA.
      CISA is directed to provide a briefing, not later than 90 
days of the date of enactment of this Act and semiannually 
thereafter, on the updated timelines and acquisition strategies 
for the National Cybersecurity Protection System (NCPS) program 
and the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program, 
including the accelerated deployment of CDM Phase 4 data 
protection management (Digital Rights Management, Data Masking, 
Micro-Segmentation, Enhanced Encryption, Mobile Device 
Management, etc.) across all ``.gov'' civilian agencies.
      Advanced persistent threats targeting critical 
infrastructure sectors in the United States is cause for 
concern. Not later than 60 days of the date of enactment of 
this Act, the Department is directed to brief the Committees on 
the status of implementing the recommendations of the 2017 
report of the National Infrastructure Advisory Council, 
Securing Cyber Assets: Addressing Urgent Cyber Threats to 
Critical Infrastructure.
      To provide greater flexibility, CISA PPAs are included in 
the control table for purposes of reprograming and transfer 
thresholds at the second level PPA. It is expected that CISA 
will include in its budget request greater detail, to at least 
the third level PPA, so Congress can continue fiscal oversight 
and not have to return to a greater level of specificity in the 
control table.

                         OPERATIONS AND SUPPORT

      A total of $1,345,802,000 is provided for Operations and 
Support, of which $18,650,000 is made available until September 
30, 2020, for the National Infrastructure Simulation Analysis 
Center (NISAC). The conferees include a total of $33,000,000 
for the Election Infrastructure Security Initiative (EISI) and 
$7,397,000 for the 2019 pay raise as described through CISA 
PPAs.

                             CYBERSECURITY

      The Department has a significant role in assisting state 
and local election officials as they prepare for federal 
elections. While an OIG investigation on the status of the 
Department's assistance to States continues, to further aid the 
Committees' oversight, the GAO shall examine how the Department 
is implementing its key responsibilities in overseeing 
protection of the elections critical infrastructure subsector 
and the reported benefits and challenges of such efforts. GAO 
shall provide a report not later than 180 days after the date 
of the enactment of this Act.
      CISA is directed to explore opportunities for 
facilitating partnerships, such as those described in House 
report 115-948, between and among federal, state, local, and 
private entities on the use of testing and modeling to evaluate 
cyber vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure and work with 
the Chief of the National Guard Bureau and other stakeholders 
to identify best practices for such testing and modeling. CISA 
shall brief the Committee not later than 180 days after the 
date of enactment of this Act on how CISA, the National Guard, 
and other stakeholders could play a larger role in facilitating 
such partnerships.
      CISA is directed to brief the Committees, not later than 
90 days after the date of enactment of this Act, on the 
feasibility of establishing a pilot for a hacking competition 
that would allow independent cyber experts to identify 
cybersecurity vulnerabilities in election systems across the 
country, with participants potentially eligible to receive 
rewards, as determined by the Secretary, based upon their 
findings. The participation of state and local election 
officials, including any access to their networks, should be 
completely voluntary. State and local election officials, as 
well as election service providers, should be appropriately 
notified about relevant cybersecurity vulnerabilities 
discovered through the competition.
      Cyber Readiness and Response.--The conferees include an 
increase above the request of $29,379,000 for EISI; $3,000,000

an increase of $9,738,000 above the request to restore the 
proposed reduction to the NISAC and an increase of $500,000 for 
EISI.
      In July 2018, the Secretary announced the redesignation 
of the Office of Cyber and Infrastructure Analysis (OCIA) as 
the National Risk Management Center (NRMC) in an effort to 
refocus risk management efforts across the various critical 
infrastructure sectors. As part of the effort, CISA aims to 
improve security and resiliency outcomes by focusing more on 
sector-wide and cross-sector risks and dependencies. The 
conferees include a realignment of $17,216,000 into this PPA 
for such activities. Not later than 90 days after the date of 
the enactment of this Act, the NRMC is directed to provide a 
detailed spend plan for its fiscal year 2019 activities. This 
spend plan should highlight the operational change in strategy 
from prior years, to include the anticipated outcome resulting 
from these efforts.
      The conferees include an increase of $4,962,000 above the 
request for risk analyses of industrial control systems. The 
conferees also encourage CISA to use commercial, human-led 
threat behavioral analysis and technology. NRMC is also 
encouraged to employ private sector, industry-specific threat 
intelligence and best practices to better characterize 
potential consequences to other critical infrastructure sectors 
during a systemic cyber event.
      Critical Infrastructure Situational Awareness.--The 
conferees include an increase of $3,000,000 above the request 
to improve and enhance capabilities for near-real-time 
monitoring of the inter-connected dependencies of the electric 
power subsector and other critical infrastructure sectors. The 
conferees also include an increase of $775,000 to support 
regionalization efforts to improve service delivery to the 
field.

include an increase of $1,700,000 above the request for the 
software assurance program and $2,000,000 to continue efforts 
to ensure the integrity of supply chains.

                       FEDERAL PROTECTIVE SERVICE

      A total of $1,527,110,000 is made available for the FPS. 
This funding is generated by collections of security fees from 
federal agencies based on security services provided by FPS.
      Not later than 90 days of the date of enactment of this 
Act, FPS shall provide a briefing to the Committees as 
described in Senate Report 115-283. In addition, FPS is 
directed to provide an expenditure plan to the Committees, not 
later than 90 days after the date of enactment of this Act, 
detailing planned obligations for operating expenses and 
countermeasures by region and facility.
      A new revenue model study completed by the Administration 
and FPS, which proposed a method to more accurately assign 
security costs to users, is currently scheduled for 
implementation in fiscal year 2020. A provision is included 
requiring FPS to evaluate alternative approaches and methods to 
fund ``Countermeasures'' security costs and provide a report to 
the Committees on its conclusions not later than 180 days after 
the date of enactment of this Act. These approaches and methods 
should demonstrate efficiency, focusing on innovative 
countermeasures which are planned for in advance, and solutions 
that take into consideration a federal agency's own investments 
in security.

        TITLE IV--RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TRAINING, AND SERVICES

           United States Citizenship and Immigration Services

                         OPERATIONS AND SUPPORT

      The conference agreement provides an increase of $607,000 
above the request for the 2019 pay raise.
      The conferees direct the Department, in consultation with 
the Department of Labor to review options for addressing the 
problem of unavailability of H-2B visas for employers that need 
workers to start work late in a semiannual period of 
availability and to report to the Committees on these options 
not later than 120 days after the date of enactment of this 
Act.

applicants who can demonstrate an inability to pay the 
naturalization fee. USCIS is also encouraged to consider 
whether the current naturalization fee is a barrier to 
naturalization for those earning between 150 percent and 200 
percent of the federal poverty guidelines, who are not 
currently eligible for a fee waiver.
      The conferees encourage USCIS to maintain naturalization 
fees at an affordable level while also focusing on reducing the 
backlog of applicants. As USCIS undertakes its next biennial 
fee study, the conferees urge the agency to include in its 
final report an estimate of the resources required to clear the 
backlog of applications for temporary status, adjustment of 
status, and naturalization, as well as reduce future wait times 
from the submission to initial adjudication to no more than one 
year for all petitions processed by the agency. Additionally, 
USCIS is directed to brief the Committees on specific actions, 
if any, that the agency is taking to reduce the backlog of 
asylum applications while ensuring that asylum applicants are 
properly reviewed for eligibility and for security purposes.
      The conferees urge USCIS to dedicate more resources to U 
visa adjudication, specifically increasing trained U visa 
adjudicators by at least 60 additional agents, and provide 
adequate resources to hire staff and train adjudicators for the 
purpose of reviewing applications within six months of receipt.

              PROCUREMENT, CONSTRUCTION, AND IMPROVEMENTS

      The Procurement, Construction, and Improvements account 
provides funds for the acquisition and deployment of the E-
Verify program, which is funded at the request level of

      The conferees support the proposal to expand the Work for 
Others (WFO) program within NBACC and direct the Science and 
Technology Directorate (S&T) to provide a briefing within 30 
days after the date of enactment of this Act, on the process 
established to document, streamline and approve WFO projects to 
include the following performance metrics: number of projects 
and total revenue generated for each of the next 5 fiscal 
years.
      The conference agreement supports the transfer of 
National Bio and Agro-defense Facility operations funding and 
some personnel to the Agriculture Research Service within the 
Department of Agriculture. The agreement also aligns with the 
budget proposal for S&T to share funding responsibility for 
NBACC with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

             Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office

      Consistent with Public Law 115-387, the Countering 
Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) Act of 2018, the conference 
agreement provides funding for the newly authorized CWMD 
Office, which consolidates the operations of the Domestic 
Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO), the Office of Health Affairs 
(OHA), and certain related activities and personnel from other 
components of the Department.

                         OPERATIONS AND SUPPORT

      Within the total amount provided, not less than $500,000 
is to continue implementation of the voluntary anthrax vaccine 
program for emergency responders. The CWMD Office shall brief 
the Committees not later than 45 days after the date of 
enactment of this Act on the status of implementation of this 
program, including any plans for expansion beyond the initial 
pilot in the first community and associated costs.
      The conferees understand the CWMD Office is in the 
process of completing an integrated biosurveillance program. 
However, it is unclear whether the requested funding will fully 
support the capabilities currently delivered by the National 
Biosurveillance Integration Center (NBIC) and the Joint 
Analysis Center. Therefore, within the amount provided, 
$5,000,000 above the request is to continue supporting the 
capabilities provided by NBIC and the Joint Analysis Center in 
order to provide situational awareness of biological threats 
for the Department, as well as federal, state, local, and 
private sectors partners.
      The conferees encourage the CWMD Office to continue its 
engagement in support of a visualization tool that incorporates 
data from state and local entities that can serve as a bio-
preparedness tool for emergency response, emergency management, 
and law enforcement at all levels of government.
      The $25,200,000 requested under this heading for the 
acquisition of portable detection systems is instead provided 
under Procurement, Construction, and Improvements.
      In lieu of direction regarding the non-pay level of 
funding, the CWMD Office shall provide a report on the non-pay 
funding level.

              PROCUREMENT, CONSTRUCTION, AND IMPROVEMENTS

      The conferees provide $100,096,000 for the acquisition 
and deployment of large scale and portable detection systems to 
detect radiological, nuclear, biological, and chemical threats.

                        RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

      The conferees provide $83,043,000, as requested.

                           FEDERAL ASSISTANCE

      Of the total amount provided, $1,500,000 is for research 
and development of an active neutron interrogation system as 
described in Senate report 115-283.
      The CWMD Office is directed to continue funding for 
research and development of new generation semiconductor 
materials.

                      TITLE V--GENERAL PROVISIONS

             (INCLUDING RESCISSIONS AND TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

      Section 501. The conference agreement continues a 
provision directing that no part of any appropriation shall 
remain available for obligation beyond the current year unless 
expressly provided.
      Section 502. The conference agreement continues a 
provision providing authority to merge unexpended balances of 
prior appropriations with new appropriation accounts, to be 
used for the same purpose, subject to reprogramming guidelines.
      Section 503. The conference agreement continues a 
provision limiting reprogramming authority for funds within an 
appropriation and providing limited authority for transfers 
between appropriations. All components funded by the Department 
of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2019, must comply with 
these transfer and reprogramming requirements.
      The Department must notify the Committees on 
Appropriations prior to each reprogramming of funds that would 
reduce programs, projects, activities, or personnel by ten 
percent or more. Notifications are also required for each 
reprogramming of funds that would increase a program, project, 
or activity by more than $5,000,000 or ten percent, whichever 
is less. The Department must submit these notifications to the 
Committees on Appropriations at least 15 days in advance of any 
such reprogramming.
      For purposes of reprogramming notifications, ``program, 
project, or activity'' is defined as an amount identified in 
the detailed funding table located at the end of this statement 
or an amount directed for a specific purpose in this statement. 
Also for purposes of reprogramming notifications, the creation 
of a new program, project, or activity is defined as any 
significant new activity that has not been explicitly justified 
to the Congress in budget justification material and for which 
funds have not been appropriated by the Congress. For further 
guidance when determining which movements of funds are subject 
to section 503, the Department is reminded to follow GAO's 
definition of ``program, project, or activity'' as detailed in 
the GAO's A Glossary of Terms Used in the Federal Budget 
Process. Within 30 days of the date of enactment of this Act, 
the Department shall submit to the Committees a table 
delineating PPAs subject to section 503 notification 
requirements, as defined in this paragraph.
      Limited transfer authority is provided to give the 
Department flexibility in responding to emerging requirements 
and significant changes in circumstances, but is not primarily 
intended to facilitate the implementation of new programs, 
projects, or activities that were not proposed in a formal 
budget submission. Transfers may not reduce accounts by more 
than five percent or increase accounts by more than ten 
percent. The Committees on Appropriations must be notified 30 
days in advance of any transfer.
      To avoid violations of the Anti-Deficiency Act, the 
Secretary shall ensure that any transfer of funds is carried 
out in compliance with the limitations and requirements of 
section 503(b). In particular, the Secretary should ensure that 
any such transfers adhere to the opinion of the Comptroller 
General's decision in the Matter of: John D. Webster, Director, 
Financial Services, Library of Congress, dated November 7, 
1997, with regard to the definition of an appropriation subject 
to transfer limitations.
      The Department shall submit notifications on a timely 
basis and provide complete explanations of the proposed 
reallocations, including detailed justifications for the 
increases and offsets, and any specific impact the proposed 
changes would have on the budget request for the following 
fiscal year and future-year appropriations requirements. Each 
notification submitted to the Committees should include a 
detailed table showing the proposed revisions to funding and 
FTE--at the account, program, project, and activity level--for 
the current fiscal year, along with any funding and FTE impacts 
on the budget year.
      The Department shall manage its programs, projects, and 
activities within the levels appropriated, and should only 
submit reprogramming or transfer notifications in cases of 
unforeseeable and compelling circumstances that could not have 
been predicted when formulating the budget request for the 
current fiscal year. When the Department submits a 
reprogramming or transfer notification and does not receive 
identical responses from the House and Senate Committees, it is 
expected to reconcile the differences before proceeding.
      The Department is not to submit a reprogramming or 
transfer notification after June 30 except in extraordinary 
circumstances that imminently threaten the safety of human life 
or the protection of property. If an above-threshold 
reprogramming or a transfer is needed after June 30, the 
notification should contain sufficient documentation as to why 
it meets this statutory exception.
      Deobligated funds are also subject to the reprogramming 
and transfer limitations and requirements set forth in section 
503.
      Section 503(f) authorizes the Secretary to transfer up to 
$20,000,000 to address immigration emergencies after notifying 
the Committees of such transfer at least five days in advance.
      Section 504. The conference agreement continues a 
provision by reference, prohibiting funds appropriated or 
otherwise made available to the Department to make payment to 
the Working Capital Fund (WCF), except for activities and 
amounts allowed in the President's fiscal year 2019 budget 
request. Funds provided to the WCF are available until 
expended. The Department can only charge components for direct 
usage of the WCF and these funds may be used only for the 
purposes consistent with the contributing component. Any funds 
paid in advance or for reimbursement must reflect the full cost 
of each service. The Department shall submit a notification 
prior to adding a new activity to the fund or eliminating an 
existing activity from the fund. For activities added to the 
fund, such notifications shall detail the source of funds by 
PPA. In addition, the Department shall submit quarterly WCF 
execution reports to the Committees that include activity level 
detail.
      Section 505. The conference agreement continues a 
provision providing that not to exceed 50 percent of 
unobligated balances from prior-year appropriations for each 
Operations and Support appropriation, shall remain available 
through fiscal year 2020, subject to section 503 reprogramming 
requirements.
      Section 506. The conference agreement continues a 
provision that deems intelligence activities to be specifically 
authorized during fiscal year 2019 until the enactment of an 
Act authorizing intelligence activities for fiscal year 2019.
      Section 507. The conference agreement continues a 
provision requiring notification to the Committees at least 
three days before DHS executes or announces grant allocations; 
grant awards; contract awards, including contracts covered by 
the Federal Acquisition Regulation; other transaction 
agreements; letters of intent; task or delivery orders on 
multiple contract awards totaling $1,000,000 or more; a task or 
delivery orders greater than $10,000,000 from multi-year funds; 
or sole-source grant awards. Notifications shall include a 
description of the project or projects or activities to be 
funded and the location, including city, county, and state. If 
the Secretary determines that compliance would pose substantial 
risk to health, human life, or safety, an award may be made 
without prior notification but the Committees shall be notified 
within 5 full business days after such award or letter is 
issued.
      Section 508. The conference agreement continues a 
provision prohibiting all agencies from purchasing, 
constructing, or leasing additional facilities for federal law 
enforcement training without advance notification to the 
Committees.
      Section 509. The conference agreement continues a 
provision prohibiting the use of funds for any construction, 
repair, alteration, or acquisition project for which a 
prospectus, if required under chapter 33 of title 40, United 
States Code, has not been approved.
      Section 510. The conference agreement continues a 
provision that includes and consolidates by reference prior-
year statutory provisions related to a contracting officer's 
technical representative training; sensitive security 
information; and the use of funds in conformance with section 
303 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992.
      Section 511. The conference agreement continues a 
provision prohibiting the use of funds in contravention of the 
Buy American Act.
      Section 512. The conference agreement continues a 
provision regarding the oath of allegiance required by section 
337 of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
      Section 513. The conference agreement continues a 
provision that precludes DHS from using funds in this Act to 
carry out reorganization authority. This prohibition is not 
intended to prevent the Department from carrying out routine or 
small reallocations of personnel or functions within 
components, subject to section 503 of this Act. This section 
prevents large-scale reorganization of the Department, which 
should be acted on legislatively by the relevant congressional 
committees of jurisdiction. Any DHS proposal to reorganize 
components that is included as part of a budget request will be 
considered by the Committees.
      Section 514. The conference agreement continues a 
provision prohibiting funds for planning, testing, piloting, or 
developing a national identification card.
      Section 515. The conference agreement continues a

available by this Act to pay for award or incentive fees for 
contractors with below satisfactory performance or performance 
that fails to meet the basic requirements of the contract.
      Section 520. The conference agreement continues a 
provision prohibiting the use of funds to enter into a federal 
contract unless the contract meets requirements of the Federal 
Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 or chapter 137 
of title 10 U.S.C., and the Federal Acquisition Regulation, 
unless the contract is otherwise authorized by statute without 
regard to this section.
      Section 521. The conference agreement continues and 
modifies a provision providing $51,000,000 for financial 
systems modernization activities, which the Secretary may 
transfer between appropriations for the same purpose after

year for county-level agriculture risk coverage payments under 
section 1117(b)(1) of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (7 U.S.C. 
9017(b)(1)), that provides all or some of the State Farm 
Service Agency offices in each State the opportunity to provide 
agricultural producers in the State a supplemental payment 
described in subsection (c) based on the alternate calculation 
method described in subsection (b) for 1 or more counties in a 
State if the office for that State determines that the 
alternate calculation method is necessary to ensure that, to 
the maximum extent practicable, there are not significant yield 
calculation disparities between comparable counties in the 
State.
  (b) The alternate calculation method referred to in 
subsection (a) is a method of calculating the actual yield for 
the 2018 crop year for county-level agriculture risk coverage 
payments under section 1117(b)(1) of the Agricultural Act of 
2014 (7 U.S.C. 9017(b)(1)), under which--
          (1) county data of the National Agricultural 
        Statistics Service (referred to in this section as 
        ``NASS data'') is used for the calculations;
          (2) if there is insufficient NASS data for a county 
        (as determined under standards of the Secretary in 
        effect as of the date of enactment of this Act) or the 
        available NASS data produces a substantially disparate 
        result, the calculation of the county yield is 
        determined using comparable contiguous county NASS data 
        as determined by the Farm Service Agency office in the 
        applicable State; and
          (3) if there is insufficient NASS data for a 
        comparable contiguous county (as determined under 
        standards of the Secretary in effect as of the date of 
        enactment of this Act), the calculation of the county 
        yield is determined using reliable yield data from 
        other sources, such as Risk Management Agency data, 
        National Agricultural Statistics Service district data, 
        National Agricultural Statistics Service State yield 
        data, or other data as determined by the Farm Service 
        Agency office in the applicable State.
  (c)(1) A supplemental payment made under the pilot program 
established under this section may be made to an agricultural 
producer who is subject to the alternate calculation method 
described in subsection (b) if that agricultural producer would 
otherwise receive a county-level agriculture risk coverage 
payment for the 2018 crop year in an amount that is less than 
the payment that the agricultural producer would receive under 
the alternate calculation method.
  (2) The amount of a supplemental payment to an agricultural 
producer under this section may not exceed the difference 
between--
          (A) the payment that the agricultural producer would 
        have received without the alternate calculation method 
        described in subsection (b); and
          (B) the payment that the agricultural producer would 
        receive using the alternate calculation method.
  (d)(1) There is appropriated to the Secretary, out of funds 
of the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, $5,000,000, to 
remain available until September 30, 2020, to carry out the 
pilot program described in this section.
  (2) Of the funds appropriated, the Secretary shall use not 
more than $5,000,000 to carry out the pilot program described 
in this section.
  (e)(1) To the maximum extent practicable, the Secretary shall 
select States to participate in the pilot program under this 
section so the cost of the pilot program equals the amount 
provided under subsection (d).
  (2) To the extent that the cost of the pilot program exceeds 
the amount made available, the Secretary shall reduce all 
payments under the pilot program on a pro rata basis.
  (f) Nothing in this section affects the calculation of actual 
yield for purposes of county-level agriculture risk coverage 
payments under section 1117(b)(1) of the Agricultural Act of 
2014 (7 U.S.C. 9017(b)(1)) other than payments made in 
accordance with the pilot program under this section.
  (g) A calculation of actual yield made using the alternate 
calculation method described in subsection (b) shall not be 
used as a basis for any agriculture risk coverage payment 
determinations under section 1117 of the Agricultural Act of 
2014 (7 U.S.C. 9017) other than for purposes of the pilot 
program under this section.

    [Clerk's note: Reproduced below is the material relating to 
division B contained in the Explanatory Statement regarding 
H.J. Res. 31, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019.\1\]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ This Explanatory Statement was submitted for printing in the 
Congressional Record on February 13, 2019 by Mrs. Lowey of New York, 
Chairwoman of the House Committee on Appropriations. The Statement 
appears on page H1767 of Book II.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

       DIVISION B--AGRICULTURE, RURAL DEVELOPMENT, FOOD AND DRUG 
     ADMINISTRATION, AND RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2019

                        CONGRESSIONAL DIRECTIVES

      The explanatory statement is silent on provisions that 
were in both the House Report (H.Rpt. 115-706) and Senate 
Report (S.Rpt. 115-259) that remain unchanged by this 
conference agreement, except as noted in this explanatory 
statement.
      The conference agreement restates that executive branch 
wishes cannot substitute for Congress's own statements as to 
the best evidence of congressional intentions, which are the 
official reports of the Congress. The conference agreement 
further points out that funds in this Act must be used for the 
purposes for which appropriated, as required by section 1301 of 
title 31 of the United States Code, which provides: 
``Appropriations shall be applied only to the objects for which 
the appropriations were made except as otherwise provided by 
law.''
      The House and Senate report language that is not changed 
by the explanatory statement is approved and indicates 
congressional intentions. The explanatory statement, while 
repeating some report language for emphasis, does not intend to 
negate the language referred to above unless expressly provided 
herein.
      In cases in which the House or the Senate have directed 
the submission of a report, such report is to be submitted to 
both the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later 
than 60 days after enactment of this Act, unless otherwise 
directed.
    Hereafter, in division B of this statement, the term `he 
Committees' refers to the Committees on Appropriations of the 
House of Representatives and the Senate.
      For the appropriations provided by this Act and previous 
Acts, the departments and agencies funded by this conference 
agreement are reminded that the Committees use the definitions 
for transfer, reprogramming, and program, project, and activity 
as defined by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) in 
GAO-04-261SP Appropriations Law--Vol. I and GAO-05-734SP Budget 
Glossary.
      A transfer is the shifting of funds between 
appropriations. It applies to (1) transfers from one agency to 
another, (2) transfers from one account to another within the 
same agency, and (3) transfers to an interagency or intra-
agency working fund. In each instance, statutory authority is 
required.
      Reprogramming is the utilization of funds in an 
appropriation account for purposes other than those 
contemplated at the time of appropriation. It is the shifting 
of funds from one object to another within an appropriation.
      A program, project, or activity (PPA) is an element 
within a budget account. PPAs are identified by reference to 
include the most specific level of budget items identified in 
the Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug 
Administration, and Related Agencies Act, 2019, accompanying 
Committee reports, explanatory statements, the Statement of 
Managers, and budget justifications. Program activity 
structures are intended to provide a meaningful representation 
of the operations financed by a specific budget account by 
project, activity, or organization.
      For fiscal year 2019, the Committees continue to include 
bill language requiring advanced notification of certain agency 
actions. Notification will be required at least 30 days in 
advance of any action if (1) a major capital investment is 
modified; (2) an office is realigned or reorganized; and (3) 
activities are carried out that were not described in the 
budget request.
      The conference agreement directs the Office of Budget and 
Program Analysis (OBPA) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture 
(USDA) to provide an organizational chart for each agency 
funded by this Act to the division and subdivision level, as 
appropriate, by March 1, 2019. The conference agreement also 
directs the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Farm 
Credit Administration (FCA) to provide an organizational chart 
of each agency respectively to the division and subdivision 
level, as appropriate, by March 1, 2019.
      Further, USDA and FDA should be mindful of Congressional 
authority to determine and set final funding levels for fiscal 
year 2020. Therefore, the agencies should not presuppose 
program funding outcomes and prematurely initiate action to 
redirect staffing prior to knowing final outcomes on fiscal 
year 2020 program funding. The conference agreement directs 
OBPA to provide the Committees with the number of staff years 
and employees on board for each agency funded by this Act on a 
quarterly basis.
      Not later than 60 days after the date of the enactment of 
this Act, the Secretary of Agriculture and the Commissioner of 
Food and Drugs shall enter into a formal agreement delineating 
the responsibilities of the two agencies for the regulation of 
cell-cultured food products derived from livestock and poultry. 
Such agreement shall be made public on the USDA and FDA 
websites within one day of the completion of the agreement.

                     TITLE I--AGRICULTURAL PROGRAMS

       Processing, Research and Marketing Office of the Secretary

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $46,603,000 for the 
Office of the Secretary.
      In addition to updates provided to the Committees, the 
Department is directed to include in its fiscal year 2020 
Congressional Justification, as a single exhibit, a table 
listing all deliverables, with a column for due dates if 
applicable.
      The conference agreement includes continued investment 
towards providing access to high-speed broadband infrastructure 
and services to rural areas of the United States. The 
conference agreement continues to provide resources for 
broadband deployment through the Broadband Loan program, 
Community Connect grant program, Distance Learning and 
Telemedicine program and an additional $550,000,000 for the 
broadband pilot program established in section 779 of division 
A of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 (Public Law 115-
141). To ensure these investments are maximized, the conference 
agreement reminds the Department to avoid efforts that could 
duplicate existing networks built by private investment or 
those built leveraging and utilizing other federal programs and 
directs the Secretary of Agriculture to coordinate with the 
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National 
Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA) to ensure 
wherever possible that broadband loans and grants issued under 
the broadband programs are targeted to areas that are currently 
unserved. In particular, the conference agreement directs USDA 
to utilize the NTIA's assessment of the current state of 
broadband access nationwide, which includes the identification 
of existing infrastructure, gaps, and opportunities for more 
efficient deployment. In implementing a strategy for broadband 
deployment to unserved communities, the Department shall 
explore utilizing all technologies, including but not limited 
to, fiber, cable modem, fixed wireless, and television white 
space as a means of building sustainable rural infrastructure 
for the modern economy. The amounts made available for the 
broadband pilot program, as with the Rural Economic Development 
Loan Program shall remain available until expended.
      The conferees encourage the Secretary to work with 
stakeholders to develop accepted remediation protocols that 
will allow for the repurposing of poultry growing facilities 
into controlled environment agriculture facilities safe for 
food production.
      The conferees are concerned about the unknown costs 
associated with the proposed move of the National Institutes of 
Food and Agriculture and the Economic Research Service to a new 
location outside of the National Capital Region. In submitting 
the fiscal year 2020 budget justification, the Department is 
directed to include all cost estimates for the proposed move of 
the two agencies, as well as a detailed analysis of any 
research benefits of their relocation. There is an expectation 
that this process will be followed in the future for any other 
potential proposed agency relocations by the Department.
      The conferees support an indefinite delay in the proposed 
transfer of ERS to the Office of the Chief Economist. At this 
time, the conferees find it appropriate for ERS to remain under 
the Research, Education and Economics mission area. The 
conferees take this position as several questions remain about 
the merits of the proposed transfer as well as the proposed 
relocation of ERS outside of the National Capital Region. 
Insufficient information and justification relating to the 
reorganization and relocation make moving forward on these 
proposals premature at this time.
      The conferees await the cost-benefit analysis of the 
National Finance Center and accompanying sufficiency review by 
the Comptroller General of the United States as directed in 
P.L. 115-141. The conferees remind the Department of enacted 
language prohibiting the initiating, planning, developing, 
implementing, or making of any changes to remove or relocate 
any systems, missions, or functions of the offices of the Chief 
Financial Officer or any personnel from the National Finance 
Center prior to written notification to and prior approval of 
the Committee on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress.
      The following table reflects the conference agreement:

threats to animal agriculture and public health. The conferees 
provide an additional $5,000,000 for ARS to increase research 
efforts on foreign animal diseases and emerging diseases with 
high consequence to animal and public health.
      The Committees have read the quarterly reports on animal 
welfare issues submitted by ARS. While providing helpful 
information, on some issues, ARS did not report a single 
specific negative finding by APHIS inspectors, despite the fact 
that numerous violations have been found involving the death of 
numerous animals and serious health issues of many more. The 
failure to report these problems to the Committees is 
unacceptable. The conferees direct ARS to submit a single 
report covering all violations found by APHIS to date and the 
specific actions taken to prevent them from recurring within 60 
days of enactment. They also direct ARS to continue to submit 
quarterly reports that include all violations found by APHIS 
during that quarter and the specific actions that will be taken 
to prevent their recurrence. The quarterly reports shall also 
include each issue found by APHIS inspectors at the pre-
compliance inspections of newly-covered research activities and 
the remedial actions taken.
      The conferees recognize the need for advancements in 
dryland production practices, cropping, and equipment to 
increase profitability, conserve the soil, enhance soil water 
storage, promote soil health, and decrease reliance on 
herbicides. The conferees provide an additional $2,000,000 to 
expand research focused on resilient dryland farming.

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $1,011,136,000 for the 
Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), Salaries 
and Expenses.
      The conferees provide a net increase of $34,243,000 for 
high priority initiatives in order to protect the plant and 
animal resources of the Nation from pests and diseases. Within 
the increase total, the conferees include the following: 
$800,000 for the Equine, Cervid, and Small Ruminant Health 
program to help address chronic wasting disease and support for 
the National Scrapie Eradication Program; $10,600,000 for the 
Veterinary Diagnostics program to carry out the science program 
at the National Bio- and Agro-defense Facility program; 
$1,000,000 for Agricultural Quarantine Inspection in support of 
pre-departure and interline inspection efforts; $2,500,000 for 
Field Crop and Rangeland Ecosystems Pests in order to control 
or eradicate pests destroying Roseau cane in wetlands near the 
Mississippi River Delta as well as funds for APHIS to partner 
with states in the control and eradication of the cogongrass 
weed; $12,843,000 for Specialty Crop Pests, including 
$12,000,000 for the control or eradication of the spotted 
lanternfly; $4,000,000 for Tree and Wood Pests; $500,000 for 
Animal Welfare; and, $2,000,000 for the Overseas Technical and 
Trade Operations Program to assist U.S. producers whose 
agricultural exports are blocked due to unfair sanitary and 
phytosanitary issues.
      The conferees direct APHIS to send copies of all 
inspection reports for current ARS facilities and newly covered 
ARS facilities, including pre-compliance reports, to the 
Committees.
      The conferees include no less than $4,000,000 for cervid 
health activities. Within the funds provided, APHIS should give 
consideration to indemnity payments if warranted.
      The conferees support efforts to address potential gaps 
in farm-specific antimicrobial resistance data. At the same 
time, the agency is reminded that any information collected on-
farm should be done through the National Animal Health 
Monitoring System (NAHMS), keeping respondents anonymous and 
ensuring that all information collected is protected from 
release or distribution in a manner that could identify an 
individual respondent.
      The conferees remain concerned with the invasive species 
scale insect pest that is destroying Roseau cane in the 
Mississippi River's Delta region along the Gulf of Mexico. The 
conferees direct APHIS to continue work with the Agricultural 
Research Service (ARS) and stakeholders and provide an 
additional $500,000 to further develop an integrated management 
program for control of the Roseau cane scale insect pest 
infestation.
      The conferees include $28,000,000 under Wildlife Damage 
Management for national rabies management, surveillance, and 
eradication efforts and $2,000,000 for Wildlife Services 
education and training. The conference agreement also provides 
$1,600,000 for combatting wildlife depredation to catfish 
production and maintain fiscal year 2018 funding levels for 
feral swine surveillance. Additionally, no less than $250,000 
should be available for the agency to reduce blackbird 
depredation in the Northern Great Plains.
      The conferees provide $2,000,000 for APHIS to partner 
with state departments of agriculture and forestry commissions 
in states considered to be the epicenter of infestations, to 
assist with control and treatment of cogongrass in order to 
slow the advancing front of this invasive plant-pest species 
and its impact on forest productivity, wildlife habitat, and 
private landowners.

                         Risk Management Agency

      The conference agreement provides $58,361,000 for the 
Risk Management Agency (RMA), Salaries and Expenses.

                 Natural Resources Conservation Service

                        CONSERVATION OPERATIONS

      The conference agreement provides $819,492,000 for 
Conservation Operations.
      The conferees provide $9,400,000 for the Snow Survey and 
Water Forecasting Program; $9,481,000 for the Plant Materials 
Centers; $74,685,000 for the Soil Surveys Program; and 
$725,926,000 for Conservation Technical Assistance.
      The conferees support NRCS' ongoing work to prevent soil 
erosion leading to harmful algal blooms through the 
introduction of cover crops and encourages continued targeting 
of watersheds where harmful algal blooms pose a threat. In 
addition, no less than $5,000,000 shall be provided to support 
cooperative agreements focused on innovative phosphorus removal 
strategies where agricultural runoff has contributed nutrients 
to a waterbody. Such work shall be conducted in consultation 
with the National Institute for Food and Agriculture and the 
Agricultural Research Service.
      In carrying out the programs under section 524(b) of the 
Federal Crop Insurance Act, the Secretary is encouraged to 
establish multi-year pilot projects to provide financial and 
technical assistance to farms regulated under the FSMA Produce 
Safety Rule for capital improvements to address on-farm 
agricultural water concerns, including irrigation systems and 
other conservation practices to improve water quality and soil 
health. Payment limits and other provisions of the AMA program 
will apply.
      The conferees are concerned about the number of staff 
vacancies at NRCS, as unfilled state-level positions are 
creating delays in application approval and the deployment of 
important conservation funding. NRCS is directed to provide a 
report no later than 90 days after enactment of this Act 
updating the Committees on staffing levels at each NRCS office 
across the country, by location, including vacancies that have 
remained unfilled for more than 6 months, plans to fill those 
vacancies, and the workload analysis that demonstrates the 
total number of employees needed compared to the national 
staffing cap.
      The conferees reiterate their support for irrigation 
agriculture and encourage NRCS to leverage all possible funding 
streams to support the expansion of on-farm irrigation in 
regions that have previously not had widespread irrigation 
systems, specifically in the Southeastern United States. The 
conferees direct NRCS to focus efforts on the development of 
conservation and irrigation techniques to reduce water usage in 
agriculture production while maintaining crop quality and yield 
in rural America.

      The conference agreement provides $800,000 for the Office 
of the Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition, and Consumer

      The marketplace continues to develop innovative 
technologies, such as third-party mobile applications, which

benefits. The conferees encourage USDA to ensure that these new 
technologies have a secure system in place to protect personal 
account information; do not sell, distribute or make available 
personal account information for commercial marketing purposes; 
and that participants have consistent access to their account 
information regardless of the means in which they choose to 
access it.
      Retailer SNAP sales data could contain proprietary and 
confidential information. Should such information be made 
publicly available, USDA is directed to make every effort to 
protect confidential business information likely to cause harm 
to the competitive position in the retail industry, especially 
small grocery stores and small grocery stores in rural areas. 
Personal information about individual SNAP participants should 
also remain confidential.

SPECIAL SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION PROGRAM FOR WOMEN, INFANTS, AND CHILDREN 
                                 (WIC)

      The conference agreement provides $6,075,000,000 for the 
Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and 
Children.
      The conference agreement recommends full funding for WIC 
that will meet estimated participation in fiscal year 2019. The 
recommendation includes $60,000,000 for breastfeeding support 
initiatives and $19,000,000 for infrastructure. The conferees 
recognize new technologies, including telemedicine, that 
support breastfeeding mothers through access to professional 
breastfeeding and nutrition consultants. The conferees provide 
$5,000,000 for telehealth competitive grants to supplement the 
nutrition education and breastfeeding support offered in the 
WIC clinic, and to decrease barriers to access to WIC services, 
particularly in rural communities. Funding can be used to 
support a variety of telehealth interventions, including but 
not limited to the use of telehealth tools by WIC staff as well 
as clinical services and technologies provided by third-party 
vendors.
      The work of the National Academies of Science (NAS) to 
review and make recommendations for updating the WIC food 
packages to reflect current science and cultural factors is 
recognized. The conferees note, however, that while all revised 
packages now allow some fish, the amounts remain low compared 
to the recommendations of other authoritative health agencies. 
The conferees strongly encourage the Department to consider the 
health and cultural benefits of fish consumption as the NAS 
recommendations are reviewed and used to inform the 
Department's next course of action. The conferees also strongly 
encourage the Department to continue to allow states to submit 
cultural food package proposals to respond to the cultural 
preferences of WIC participants in states like Alaska.

      Report language included in House Report 115-704 (``the 
House report'') or Senate Report 115-275 (``the Senate 
report'') that is not changed by this explanatory statement or 
the Act is approved. The explanatory statement, while repeating 
some language for emphasis, is not intended to negate the 
language referred to above unless expressly provided herein. In 
cases where both the House report and the Senate report address 
a particular issue not specifically addressed in the 
explanatory statement, the House report and the Senate report 
should be read as consistent and are to be interpreted 
accordingly. In cases where the House report or the Senate 
report directs the submission of a report, such report is to be 
submitted to both the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations (``the Committees'').
      Each department and agency funded in this Act shall 
follow the directions set forth in this Act and the 
accompanying explanatory statement, and shall not reallocate 
resources or reorganize activities except as provided herein. 
Reprogramming procedures shall apply to: funds provided in this 
Act; unobligated balances from previous appropriations Acts 
that are available for obligation or expenditure in fiscal year 
2019; and non-appropriated resources such as fee collections 
that are used to meet program requirements in fiscal year 2019. 
These procedures are specified in section 505 of this Act.
      Any reprogramming request shall include any out-year 
budgetary impacts and a separate accounting of program or 
mission impacts on estimated carryover funds. Any program, 
project, or activity cited in this explanatory statement, or in 
the House report or the Senate report and not changed by this 
Act, shall be construed as the position of the Congress and 
shall not be subject to reductions or reprogramming without 
prior approval of the Committees. Further, any department or 
agency funded in this Act that plans a reduction-in-force shall 
notify the Committees by letter no later than 30 days in 
advance of the date of any such planned personnel action.
      When a department or agency submits a reprogramming or 
transfer request to the Committees and does not receive 
identical responses, it shall be the responsibility of the 
department or agency seeking the reprogramming to reconcile the 
differences between the two bodies before proceeding. If 
reconciliation is not possible, the items in disagreement in 
the reprogramming or transfer request shall be considered 
unapproved. Departments and agencies shall not submit 
reprogramming notifications after July 1, 2019, except in 
extraordinary circumstances. Any such notification shall 
include a description of the extraordinary circumstances.
      In compliance with section 533 of this Act, each 
department and agency funded in this Act shall submit spending 
plans, signed by the respective department or agency head, for 
the Committees' review not later than 45 days after enactment.

      National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS).--
The agreement provides $13,500,000 for NIDIS activities.
      Ocean Exploration and Research.--The agreement adopts 
House and Senate report language regarding ocean exploration 
and research. The agreement supports the use of existing tele-
presence technology, and applied exploration, to map critically 
important mineral deposits within America's exclusive economic 
zone and sites of submerged human history, particularly in the 
Pacific.
      Multi-Function Phased Array Radar (MPAR) Program.--The 
fiscal year 2018 appropriations Act directed NOAA to maintain 
its leadership in the Spectrum Efficient National Surveillance 
Radar (SENSR) Program. There is frustration with the decision 
to de-scope the SENSR program by removing the high-resolution 
weather sensing requirements, and concern that NOAA is 
unprepared to execute a weather radar follow-on program. In 
lieu of Senate language, the agreement directs OAR, in 
coordination with the National Weather Service, to develop and 
submit to the Committees, within 90 days of enactment of this 
Act, a weather radar follow-on research-to-operations 
transition plan, in accordance with the requirements for agency 
transition plans set forth under NOAA Administrative Order 216-
105B, section 3.06.
      Oceanographic Research Partnership Program.--$5,500,000 
is for NOAA to advance ocean science research through the 
program established under 10 U.S.C. 7901. Senate guidance for 
this funding and support for Ocean Joint Technology Transfer 
Initiative projects funded in fiscal year 2018 is adopted.
      Joint Technology Transfer Initiative (JTTI).--House 
language regarding JTTI is adopted. Of the amount provided for 
JTTI, up to $5,000,000 shall be available to pursue innovative, 
modern techniques to accelerate the transition of weather 
research to operations.
      Highly Migratory Species.--In lieu of House and Senate 
language under NMFS, the agreement provides up to $2,000,000 
within OAR for the Sea Grant program to partner with State 
agencies, academia, and the fishing industry to research highly 
migratory fish species in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic. 
This should include examining the impact of offshore oil 
platforms on the biology of highly migratory species, such as 
yellow fin tuna. Highly migratory species, and the coastal 
communities that rely on the health of these stocks, could 
greatly benefit from improved, science-based management and 
conservation.

      Quarterly Briefings.--The fiscal year 2018 appropriations 
Act directed the NWS to provide quarterly briefings to the 
Committees on all NWS management and budget issues. The 
agreement adopts House and Senate language regarding such 
reporting. However, there is frustration and disappointment 
that the NWS was unable to provide any quarterly briefings 
during fiscal year 2018. The American people entrust the NWS 
with more than $1,000,000,000 each year to provide accurate 
weather forecasting. It is unacceptable that the NWS is 
unwilling or unable to report to the Committees on its 
operations. The leadership of the Department of Commerce and 
NOAA shall ensure NWS improves the transparency of its 
operations and provides quarterly briefings on management and 
budget issues to the Committees.
      National Mesonet Program.--The agreement adopts Senate 
report language on the National Mesonet Program and provides 
$19,000,000 for these activities.
      Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS).--
Within the increased funding for Central Processing, the 
agreement fully funds the request for the AWIPS Cyclical 
Refreshment.
      Facilities Maintenance.--Within funding for Analyze, 
Forecast, and Support, the agreement provides $8,000,000 for 
the National Weather Service's highest priority facilities 
repair and deferred maintenance requirements at Weather 
Forecast Offices. Thirty days prior to obligating any of these 
additional facilities repair and deferred maintenance funds, 
NWS shall submit a report providing: (1) a prioritized list of 
NWS deferred facilities maintenance needs, based on the 
facilities condition assessment; and (2) an estimate of the 
total amount and composition of deferred facilities 
maintenance. In subsequent fiscal years, NOAA shall request 
resources in line with the September 2017 NWS Facilities 
Strategic Plan.
      Dissemination.--House report language regarding the 
Integrated Dissemination Program system is not adopted.
      National Water Center (NWC) Operations.--The agreement 
adopts Senate language under NWS for the NWC and provides an 
additional $1,500,000 within Analyze, Forecast, and Support to 
expedite hiring within the NWC Water Prediction Operations 
Division. The increasing prevalence and severity of flooding 
events results in loss of life and billions of dollars of 
property damage. While NOAA has made progress in developing 
next-generation water modeling capabilities, such as the 
National Water Model, it is imperative that these technologies 
be transitioned into operations to enable more accurate and 
longer range flood forecasts. Objective 3.3 of the Department 
of Commerce's Strategic Plan directs NOAA to begin 
demonstrating these capabilities. Therefore, NWS should also 
simultaneously be preparing to operationalize these 
capabilities. NWS is directed to develop and make public, by 
the end of fiscal year 2019, an operations and services policy 
directive that defines national instructions on operations at 
the NWC, and the content and provision of NWC products and 
services. Further, such policy should establish the NWC as the 
operational center of excellence for water prediction and 
related decision support services within NOAA.

maintains separate funding for the Joint Polar Satellite System 
(JPSS) and the Polar Weather Follow-on (PFO) Program and 
includes $548,035,000 and $329,956,000 for those programs, 
respectively. NOAA's proposal to combine the JPSS and PFO 
programs will continue to be considered, and NOAA is encouraged 
to provide the Committees, concurrent with the submission of 
its fiscal year 2020 budget request, a revised proposal that 
clearly identifies the cost and programmatic efficiencies that 
would be gained by combining these programs into one funding 
line.
      NOAA Construction.--House and Senate reporting 
requirements regarding deferred facilities maintenance needs 
are adopted. Additionally, the agreement retains Senate 
language regarding Mission Support, facilities initiative.
      Space Weather Follow-on.--The agreement includes 
$27,000,000 for Space Weather Follow-on. NOAA shall continue 
development and construction of two compact coronagraphs. 
Further, NOAA shall begin preparations to integrate a compact 
coronagraph on Geostationary Operational Environmental

Backlog.--The Department shall continue efforts to accelerate 
the hiring and deployment of IJ teams, giving priority to the 
highest workload areas, and improving coordination with the 
Department of Homeland Security to institute fair and efficient 
court proceedings in detention facilities and ensure court 
appearances by non-detained individuals. The Department should

candidates to ensure the adjudication process is impartial and 
consistent with due process.
      EOIR shall continue to submit monthly reports on 
performance and IJ hiring in the format and detail provided in

                           TITLE III--SCIENCE

                Office of Science and Technology Policy

      The agreement includes $5,544,000 for the Office of 
Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).
      Emerging Contaminants.--OSTP submitted the ``Plan for 
Addressing Critical Research Gaps Related to Emerging 
Contaminants in Drinking Water'' in October 2018. Within 90 
days of the enactment of this agreement, OSTP shall update the 
implementation plan included in that report, including 
identifying budgetary resources required, by agency, for fiscal 
years 2019, 2020, and 2021.

                         National Space Council

      The agreement includes $1,965,000 for the activities of 
the National Space Council.
      Execution of Space Programs.--Under Executive Order 
13803, the National Space Council (the Council) is directed to, 
among other duties, ``develop recommendations for the President 
on space policy and space-related issues'' and ``foster close 
coordination, cooperation, and technology and information 
exchange among the civil, national security, and commercial 
space sectors.'' In executing these duties, the Council is 
reminded that, in recent years, poor workmanship, poor 
oversight, and poor performance (e.g., flawed welding 
techniques, component tube contamination, incorrect cleaning 
methods, using the wrong voltage in testing, unreliable launch 
vehicle bolt cutter assembly, mishandling of rocket stages 
during transport, and substandard strut components) have led to 
costly delays and even loss of mission. Overly ambitious 
technology development, optimistic scheduling, and poor cost 
estimation have become common. No type of contract vehicle 
seems immune, whether traditional cost-plus contracts or firm, 
fixed-price contracts are used. These are inherent, systemic 
problems that cannot continue. National security, technology 
development, scientific discoveries, and improved weather 
forecasting are too important to the future of the Nation and 
require the Council to address these issues.

             National Aeronautics and Space Administration

      The agreement includes $21,500,000,000 for the National 
Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The agreement 
includes substantial new resources for activities related to 
Moon exploration and retains language regarding submission of a 
detailed report prior to obligating certain funds. As noted 
elsewhere in this statement, the lack of progress across 
science and exploration programs despite continued significant 
and sustained investments in these programs is dismaying. 
Reports by the NASA Inspector General (IG), the Government 
Accountability Office (GAO), and independent experts point to a 
number of deficiencies that NASA and its private sector 
partners must address. During fiscal year 2019, NASA is 
expected to show marked success in addressing the myriad 
deficiencies identified by oversight bodies.

                                SCIENCE

      The agreement includes $6,905,700,000 for Science.
      Earth Science.--The agreement includes $1,931,000,000 for 
Earth Science and adopts all funding levels designated by the 
House and the Senate.
      Planetary Science.--The agreement includes $2,758,500,000 
for Planetary Science. The agreement adopts House language 
regarding the Europa Clipper and Lander missions modified to 
reflect launch dates of 2023 for the Clipper and 2025 for the 
Lander. The agreement includes $97,000,000 for the Double 
Asteroid Redirection Test and no less than the fiscal year 2018 
level for NEOcam. The agreement includes up to $218,000,000 for 
the Lunar Discovery and Exploration program, including 
$21,000,000 for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. The agreement

$10,000,000 for search for life technology development.
      James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).--The agreement 
includes $304,600,000 for JWST. There is profound 
disappointment with both NASA and its contractors regarding 
mismanagement, complete lack of careful oversight, and overall 
poor basic workmanship on JWST, which has undergone two 
significant reviews because of failures on the part of NASA and 
its commercial sector partner. NASA and its commercial partners 
seem to believe that congressional funding for this project and 
other development efforts is an entitlement, unaffected by 
failures to stay on schedule or within budget. This attitude 
ignores the opportunity cost to other NASA activities that must 
be sacrificed or delayed. The agreement includes a general 
provision to adjust the cap for JWST to $8,802,700,000, an 
increase of $802,700,000 above the previous cap. NASA should 
strictly adhere to this cap or, under this agreement, JWST will 
have to find cost savings or cancel the mission. NASA and its 
contractors are expected to implement the recommendations of 
both the most recent independent review and the previous Casani 
report and to continue cooperation with JWST's standing review 
board. The agreement does not adopt the reorganization of JWST 
into Astrophysics, and the JWST Program Office shall continue 
the reporting structure adopted after the Casani report and 
reiterated by the recent Webb Independent Review Board.
