                              Clerk's Note

    This committee print provides a compilation of the enacted 
text and applicable explanatory material for the Further 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (H.R. 1865, P.L. 116-94).
    This Act consists of eight divisions related to 
Appropriations matters (divisions A through H). The Act also 
includes eight additional divisions unrelated to appropriations 
matters (divisions I through P). 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 H are the products of negotiations 
between the House and Senate Appropriations Committees on final 
fiscal year 2020 appropriations for all 12 annual 
appropriations bills. For purposes of final passage, the 12 
appropriations bills were enacted using two vehicles: H.R. 1158 
and H.R. 1865.
    The legislative text resulting from these negotiations was 
submitted by Chairwoman Nita Lowey of the House Committee on 
Appropriations as a House amendment to the Senate amendment to 
an unrelated bill pending in the House, H.R. 1865. The House 
agreed to the measure on December 17, 2019, and the Senate 
agreed to the measure on December 19, 2019.\1\ The President 
signed the legislation on December 20, 2019 and it became 
Public Law 116-94.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ The House agreed to the amendment by a vote of 297-120 (Roll 
Call No. 689). The Senate agreed to the amendment by a vote of 71-23 
(Roll Call Vote No. 415).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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. 1865. An Explanatory Statement relating to the House 
amendment to H.R. 1865 was filed by Chairwoman Lowey in the 
Congressional Record on December 17, 2019.\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 H of this Act as if it 
were a joint explanatory statement of a committee of 
conference.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \2\ The Explanatory Statement appears on pages H11061-H11484 in 
Book III of the December 17, 2019 Congressional Record.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For the convenience of users, the legislative text of each 
appropriations division is paired with the applicable section 
of the Explanatory Statement.

                          DEPARTMENT OF LABOR


              Employment and Training Administration (ETA)


                    TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

    Grants to States.--The agreement is consistent with the 
Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) authorization 
regarding the amount of WIOA State grant funding that may be 
reserved by Governors.
    Adult Employment and Training.--WIOA State grant funding 
continues to serve critical functions, including to assist 
States that continue to experience high unemployment.
    Youth Training.-- The Department is directed to evaluate 
incorporating resilience training and trauma-informed practices 
into WIOA youth job training programs and shall consult with 
organizations with nationally recognized expertise in such 
practices. The Department is directed to provide a report to 
the Committees within six months of enactment of this Act 
describing the findings of the evaluation and an assessment of 
how WIOA youth job training programs could adopt such practices 
and measure outcomes.

Dislocated Worker National Reserve

$10,000,000 to utilize the demonstration grant authority under 
the dislocated worker national reserve for grants to support 
national out-of-school time organizations that serve youth and 
teens and place an emphasis on age-appropriate workforce 
readiness programming to expand job training and workforce 
pathways for youth and disconnected youth, including soft skill 
development, career exploration, job readiness and 
certification, summer jobs, year-round job opportunities, and 
apprenticeships. Funding will also support partnerships between 
workforce investment boards and youth serving organizations.
    Strengthening Community College Training Grants.--The 
agreement provides $40,000,000 for the Strengthening Community 
College Training Grant program. The Department is directed to 
follow all requirements and directives in House Report 116-62 
related to this program, except that the Secretary shall make 
individual grants to community colleges of at least $1,000,000, 
unless grants are awarded in consortia to community colleges 
and other eligible institutions as defined in section 101(a) of 
the Higher Education Act and do not exceed $5,000,000 per 
grant.
    Workforce Opportunity for Rural Communities.--The agreement 
provides $30,000,000 to continue this program in the 
Appalachian and Delta regions. The Department is directed to 
ensure broad geographic distribution of funds within these 
regions and awards should not exceed $1,500,000 per award.
    Transition to WIOA.--The agreement requests additional 
information regarding use of the Secretary's 10 percent 
reservation of funds for technical assistance to transition to 
WIOA under the dislocated worker assistance national reserve in 
the fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification.

Apprenticeship Grant Program

    The agreement provides $175,000,000 to support registered 
apprenticeships and includes new bill language referencing 
WIOA, ensuring that funds are only used to support registered 
apprenticeships, and that makes funds available starting July 
1, 2020 to encourage better management and oversight.
    The agreement notes serious concerns regarding the 
Department's misuse of registered apprenticeship funds and the 
Department's communication of this misuse to the Committees, 
including testimony before the Committees.
    The agreement notes that funding under this program should 
be prioritized to support State, regional, and local 
apprenticeship efforts, as well as efforts by intermediaries to 
expand registered apprenticeships into new industries and for 
underserved or underrepresented populations.
    State expansion grants have been used to positive effect in 
States with high unemployment. The agreement directs the 
Secretary to prioritize funding for national, regional, and 
local intermediaries. The agreement directs the Secretary to 
continue funding for business and labor industry partner 
intermediaries and ensure that labor intermediaries are given 
opportunities to apply for competitive grants, cooperative 
agreements, contracts, and other funding opportunities.
    The Department is encouraged to support funding industry or 
sector partnerships as a means of expanding registered 
apprenticeships in in-demand industries. The Department should 
collaborate with the Department of Defense to develop 
registered apprenticeships that address the critical national 
defense need for new submarine construction. The Department is 
encouraged to support programs in the health care, maritime, 
construction, and oil and gas industries. The agreement notes 
concerns about shortages nationwide of drinking water and 
wastewater management professionals and encourages the 
Department to address the shortage of water system management 
professionals.
    The agreement directs the Department to provide quarterly 
briefings on all spending activities under this program to the 
Committees, and to comply with directives and statements in 
House Report 116-62.

                               JOB CORPS

    Job Corps.--In addition to the directives included in House 
Report 116-62, the Department is directed to provide 30 days 
notification to the Committees in advance of any action to 
close or deactivate a Job Corps Center (Center), as well as in 
advance of any action to establish a pilot program or 
demonstration project at a Center. The Department is further 
directed to minimize the amount of time a Center is inactive 
prior to commencement of a pilot program or demonstration 
project and to ensure training opportunities and slots do not 
decline as a result of such pilot or demonstration. Not later 
than 120 days after enactment of this Act, the Department shall 
provide the Committees a report on the performance of all pilot 
programs and demonstration projects, including a detailed 
description of the performance metrics used to evaluate the 
projects, and an analysis of the performance of pilots and 
projects relative to other Centers. The Department is expected 
to continue to comply with the directives under the heading Job 
Corps in Senate Report 115-289.
    Construction and Renovation.--The Department is encouraged 
to take into consideration critical municipal infrastructure 
deficiencies when identifying construction and renovation 
projects.

     STATE UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE AND EMPLOYMENT SERVICE OPERATIONS

Unemployment Insurance Compensation

    State Unemployment System Needs.--The agreement notes that 
State unemployment insurance (UI) systems are critical for 
ensuring claimants receive timely processing of benefits. The 
Department is encouraged to provide above-base State UI funds 
through supplemental funding opportunities to States to the 
extent that unobligated funds, not otherwise needed for 
workload, are available at the end of the fiscal year. Such 
funds should support improving operations and modernizing State 
UI systems to help ensure that workers and their families 
receive fast and high-quality assistance in their time of need.
    UI Integrity Center of Excellence.--The agreement provides 
$9,000,000 for the continued support of the UI Integrity Center 
of Excellence (UIICE), including $6,000,000 for the benefit of 
States to the entity operating the UIICE.

Employment Service

Workforce Act of 2018 (P.L. 115-218). The agreement urges the 
Department to provide careful oversight and transparency 
related to the timely processing of visa applications for 
temporary employment certifications. The agreement directs the

the Foreign Labor Application Gateway, in the fiscal year 2021 
Congressional Justification.

One-Stop Career Centers and Labor Market Information

2018.

            Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA)

    The agreement directs EBSA to prioritize audit resources to 
review the Thrift Savings Plan's (TSP) IT operating 
environment, including the adequacy of controls at contractor 
sites and TSP's progress in remediating previously identified 
issues from past EBSA audits.

                  Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation

    The agreement includes new bill language that extends the 
period of availability of funding for certain administrative 
expenses to five years to ensure the agency has sufficient time 
to manage a large, unanticipated influx of participants or 
costs.

                      Wage and Hour Division (WHD)

    WHD is encouraged to hire additional investigators and 
restore WHD's investigative capacity.
    In the fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification, WHD is

Payroll Audit Independent Determination (PAID) program, 
including administrative expenditures on PAID, amounts

authorizing and appropriations Committees that shall include 
the following: (1) the name and address of each employer 
holding a certificate under 29 U.S.C. 214(c); (2) the starting 
date and ending date of each certificate for each employer 
under 29 U.S.C. 214(c); (3) information about the certificate 
for each employer under 29 U.S.C. 214(c), including if the 
certificate is an initial certificate or renewal and if the 
certificate is issued or pending; and (4) the current number of 
workers paid a subminimum wage by the employer holding the 
certificate under 29 U.S.C. 214(c) at the time of data 
collection. WHD is further directed to brief the authorizing 
and appropriations Committees, within 90 days of enactment of 
this Act, on its administration, monitoring, and enforcement of

days of enactment of this Act to the Committees that shall 
include the data and economic analysis supporting the inclusion 
of the housing policy for industries requiring a mobile 
workforce in the 2015 interim final rule leading to its 
publication and the benefits and costs of such policy on U.S. 
and guest workers and employers.

            Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP)

    There is continued concern about overreliance on 
unobligated funds for support of the Special Benefits for 
Disabled Coal Miners Program. OWCP should not take action that 
could disrupt the ability of the program to ensure all 
beneficiaries receive promised benefits. The agency is directed 
to include in the fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification: 
(1) the number of beneficiaries each year since fiscal year 
2015 and (2) the total benefit payments and budgetary resources 
and expenditures within the program each year since fiscal year 
2015.

                           COMPENSATION FUND

    The Department shall ensure the Advisory Board on Toxic 
Substances and Worker Health has sufficient funding and 
staffing to meet its obligations.

          Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

    The agreement directs OSHA to publish Funding Opportunity 
Notices for fiscal year 2020 funds for the Susan Harwood 
Training Grant program no later than June 30, 2020. Further, 
the agreement directs OSHA to provide technical assistance, 
guidance, and support to fiscal year 2020 applicants in order 
to reduce the proportion that did not meet eligibility and 
program requirements included in Funding Opportunity Notices in 
fiscal year 2019.
    The agreement directs OSHA, in consultation with DoD, to

for the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). In the fiscal year 
2021 Congressional Justification, OSHA is directed to include 
annual expenditures on VPP for each year since fiscal year 2015 
as well as planned expenditures in fiscal year 2021.

              Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA)

    The fiscal year 2020 President's budget request proposed to 
allow greater flexibility by combining the enforcement 
functions for coal and metal/non-metal into a single 
enforcement budget activity. This flexibility shall only be 
exercised to bolster MSHA's ability to enforce the Mine Safety 
and Health Act and provide greater protections to miners. 
MSHA's Office of Accountability shall audit and publicly report 
findings from reviews of crossover mine inspections and monitor 
corrective actions to ensure MSHA activities adhere to its 
policies and procedures and meet the requirements of such Act. 
In addition, the Inspector General shall conduct a 
comprehensive audit of this consolidation of enforcement 
programs. Finally, the agency is directed to include in future 
Congressional Justifications historical and budget year 
information on enforcement activities and outcomes, 
distinguishing between coal and metal/non-metal mines. To 
promote transparency into agency spending on its enforcement 
activities, MSHA will continue to separately present annual 
spending on coal and metal/non-metal mines as it has in past 
Congressional Justifications.
    The agreement removes authority, first provided in fiscal 
year 2017, that allowed State assistance grants to be used by 
operators for purchase and maintenance of continuous personal 
dust monitors. No State has elected to use such authority.
    MSHA shall fully implement the requirements of section 103 
of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act and make inspections 
of each underground mine in its entirety at least four times a 
year and each surface mine in its entirety at least two times a 
year. MSHA should use existing funds to equip all MSHA mine 
rescue teams with next generation mine rescue communications 
equipment. To prepare properly for an emergency, MSHA shall 
continue to devote sufficient resources toward a competitive 
grant activity for effective emergency response and recovery 
training in various types of mine conditions.

                    Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)

    The agreement includes an increase of $40,000,000 to 
rebuild capacity at BLS and to support a headquarters

    With the increase, BLS is directed to support the following 
critical investments:
     Provide an annual supplement to the Current 
Population Survey to allow for collection of data on contingent 
and alternative work arrangements every two years and data on 
other topics related to the labor force in alternate years, 
including an occasional veterans supplement;
     Restore the production and publication of 
employment, unemployment, and labor force data under the Local 
Area Unemployment Statistics program for New England Minor 
Civil Divisions with populations less than 1,000; and
     Initiate spending on the planning and development 
of a new National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) cohort. 
BLS shall brief the Committees on the annual costs and a five-
year plan for implementing the new NLSY cohort within 90 days 
of enactment of this Act.
    When implementing these investments, BLS shall not reduce 
or eliminate existing statistical work. Further, BLS shall not 
reduce the number of full-time equivalent positions beyond the 
apportioned fiscal year 2019 full-time equivalent ceiling.
    Within the increase, the agreement includes $27,000,000 to 
relocate BLS headquarters. BLS is strongly urged to consider 
the needs of its employees throughout this transition and to 
work with the General Services Administration to address any 
outstanding safety concerns and office space considerations for 
the development of sensitive economic indicators.

                        Departmental Management

    Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB).--The 
agreement includes an increase of $10,000,000, of which 
$7,500,000 is for grants to improve countries' capacity to 
enforce labor rights agreed to under U.S. trade agreements and 
trade preference programs. The remaining $2,500,000 is provided 
for additional monitoring and enforcement staff at the Office 
of Trade and Labor Affairs and additional labor attaches in 
critical U.S. Embassies to increase field-based and 
international monitoring and labor compliance facilitation.
    ILAB should continue to release its annual Findings on the 
Worst Forms of Child Labor report, including its assessment 
ratings on Generalized System of Preference country efforts to 
implement its commitments to eliminate the worst forms of child 
labor, no later than it has historically.
    Faithful execution of the Foundations for Evidence-based 
Policymaking Act will enhance the evidence-building capacity of 
Federal agencies, strengthen privacy protections, improve 
secure access to data, and provide more and higher quality 
evidence to policymakers. The agreement directs the Department 
to include in the fiscal year 2021 and future Congressional 
Justifications an update on the implementation of such Act for 
the current and budget years.
    The agreement expects the Department to prioritize the 
submission of timely, accurate, quality, and complete financial 
and award information under existing U.S. Treasury reporting 
obligations in accordance with established management guidance, 
reporting processes, and data standards established under the 
requirements of the Digital Accountability and Transparency 
Act.
    The Department should continue to notify the Committees of 
the planned uses of funds derived from the evaluation authority 
in section 107 of this Act.
    The Department should continue to provide a report not 
later than 30 days after the conclusion of each quarter 
detailing the number of full-time equivalent employees and 
attrition by principal office and appropriations account.

support services for transitioning service members, with a 
focus on improved outcomes. The agreement includes $1,500,000

                    NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE (NCI)

    Cancer Moonshot.--The agreement directs NIH to transfer 
$195,000,000 from the NIH Innovation Account to NCI to support 
the Cancer Moonshot Initiative.
    Childhood Cancer Data Initiative.--The agreement includes 
the full budget request for this fiscal year of $50,000,000 for 
the Childhood Cancer Data Initiative, which will facilitate a 
connected data infrastructure and integrate multiple data 
sources to make data work better for patients, clinicians, and 
researchers.
    Deadliest Cancers.--The agreement directs NCI to develop a 
scientific framework using the process outlined in the 
Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act of 2012 for stomach and 
esophageal cancers and urges NCI to continue to support 
research with an emphasis on developing screening and early 
detection tools and more effective treatments for all 
recalcitrant cancers. NCI is directed to provide an update on 
NCI-supported research to advance these goals in the fiscal 
year 2021 Congressional Justification. Also, NCI is directed to 
add esophageal and stomach cancers to future Research, 
Condition, and Disease Categorization (RCDC) reports. Finally, 
the bill encourages NCI to place a high priority on researching 
these cancers, which include anaplastic astrocytoma, diffuse 
intrinsic pontine glioma, glioblastoma, Juvenile myelomonocytic 
leukemia, high-risk neuroblastoma, recurrent osteosarcoma, 
rhabdomyosarcoma, and diffuse anaplastic Wilms tumors.
    Gynecologic Cancer Clinical Trials.--NCI is encouraged to 
work with stakeholders to address priorities for the 
gynecologic oncology clinical trials scientific agenda, 
including consideration of the availability of trials for these 
patients.
    NCI Paylines.--Grant applications to NCI have increased by 
approximately 50 percent since 2013, outpacing available 
funding, with requests for cancer research ten-fold greater 
than other Institutes. With such a high demand for NCI grants, 
only a fraction of this research is funded. To support more 
awards and improve success rates, the agreement provides 
$212,500,000 to prioritize competing grants and sustain 
commitments to continuing grants.
    Precision Medicine.--The agreement strongly supports 
precision medicine initiatives that are critical to delivering 
the right treatment to the right patient at the right time. At 
its core, precision medicine aims to understand and treat the 
underlying cause of disease in individual patients. Once the 
underlying cause of a patient's disease is identified, this 
information can then be used to gain new insights into the 
underlying basic biology and disease pathogenesis, which will 
ultimately foster the development of medicine targeted to those 
patient populations most likely to benefit. NIH needs to focus 
cancer precision medicine efforts towards comprehensive drug 
screening and precision clinical trials and this agreement has 
included sufficient funding to do so. Therefore, the bill 
directs NCI to fund an initiative to foster the clinical 
demonstration of novel methodologies for individualizing 
identification of cancer therapeutics. Programs should be at a 
NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center at institutions that 
have demonstrated institutional investment in precision 
medicine, have a strong existing track record in NIH-supported 
cancer funding, and have the expertise to conduct in-depth 
genomic analysis of cancer tumors and do comprehensive drug 
repurposing screens of all FDA-approved drugs on at least one 
tumor type. Additionally, regional multi-institutional 
consortiums that serve populations with significant health 
disparities and traditionally underserved populations are 
strongly encouraged.
    Psycho-Social Distress Complications.--NCI is encouraged to 
ensure that all of its designated cancer centers are managing 
and measuring patients for distress as an integral piece of 
their treatment and follow-up care.
    Rare Cancers.--The bill supports a trans-NIH collaboration, 
which includes NCATS, to accelerate therapies for rare cancers 
and to support broader sharing of genomic-related rare cancers 
data to accelerate research and drug development for these 
cancers.
    STAR Act.--The agreement includes no less than $25,000,000 
in funding for continued implementation of sections of the 
Childhood Cancer Survivorship, Treatment, Access, and Research 
(STAR) Act. Funding is in addition to the funds allocated in 
fiscal year 2019 to expand existing biorepositories for 
childhood cancer patients enrolled in NCI-sponsored clinical 
trials to collect and maintain relevant clinical, biological, 
and demographic information on children, adolescents, and young 
adults, with an emphasis on selected cancer subtypes (and their 
recurrences) for which current treatments are least effective. 
Funding provided this year will allow NCI to continue to 
conduct and support childhood cancer survivorship research as 
authorized in the STAR Act.

           NATIONAL HEART, LUNG, AND BLOOD INSTITUTE (NHLBI)

    Chronic Disease Precision Medicine.--The bill directs NHLBI 
to fund an initiative to address chronic diseases through 
translational science and the application of a precision 
medicine approach and has included sufficient funding to do so. 
Programs should focus on diseases and disorders relating to 
heart, lung, blood, and sleep, and access to populations with 
significant health disparities. Programs should have a proven 
track record of NIH funding in all of these areas, as well as 
have NIH-funded programs for health disparities research. 
Additionally, regional multi-institutional consortiums are 
strongly encouraged.
    Congenital Heart Disease.--NHLBI is encouraged to 
prioritize congenital heart disease (CHD) activities outlined 
in its strategic plan, including improving understanding of 
outcomes and co-morbidities, modifying treatment options across 
the lifespan, and accelerating advances by leveraging CHD 
registries and networks.
    Fibrotic Diseases.--The bill encourages NIH to vigorously 
support dedicated funding and research into fibrotic diseases 
affecting different organs, including the lungs, liver, 
kidneys, heart, skin, and bones. The agreement requests a 
report on the current NIH Fibrosis Interest Group and its 
progress no later than 90 days after the passage of this Act. 
The bill encourages the Interest Group to continue its efforts 
to bring together key stakeholders, at the NIH and elsewhere, 
to develop strategic paths forward to maximize efforts in 
fibrotic disease research. The bill also encourages NIH to 
enhance its patient-centered clinical research into pulmonary 
fibrosis to include traditional observational and 
interventional studies looking at reducing healthcare 
utilization such as hospitalizations, improving symptoms such 
as cough, and prolonging life, and directs NIH to include an 
update in its fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification on 
its work relating to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis following 
the November 2012 NHLBI workshop Strategic Planning for 
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. The agreement also encourages 
NIH to create a funding mechanism to fund fibrosis research 
across all organs, building on the progress and leveraging data 
that has and may result from NHLBI funded projects.
    Hemophilia.--The agreement asks NHLBI to provide the 
Committees with the final report and national blueprint for 
future research from the May 2018 State of the Science Workshop 
on Factor VIII Inhibitors and to take steps to implement the 
research blueprint in collaboration with the hemophilia 
patient, provider, and research communities.
    Pediatric Cardiomyopathy.--The agreement commends NHLBI for 
its long-standing commitment to the Pediatric Cardiomyopathy 
Registry and strongly encourages NHLBI to continue to support 
cardiomyopathy research.
    Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.--NIH is directed 
to submit the report on Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia 
Syndrome (POTS) that was requested in Senate Report 115-289, 
now overdue, no later than 30 days after enactment of this Act. 
NIH is strongly encouraged to include an estimate of annual NIH 
funding allocated to POTS research in its publicly available 
RCDC report.

     NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF DENTAL AND CRANIOFACIAL RESEARCH (NIDCR)

    Temporomandibular Disorders.--NIDCR is encouraged to 
continue collaboration with governmental agencies and other 
stakeholders in the project entitled Temporomandibular 
Disorders: From Research Discoveries to Clinical Treatment and 
to increase funding to expand the science base in this field.

   NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF DIABETES AND DIGESTIVE AND KIDNEY DISEASES 
                                (NIDDK)

    Chronic Diseases and Health Disparities.--Kidney disease, 
type 2 diabetes, and obesity are among the most common, costly, 
and preventable of all health conditions. NIH needs to focus 
chronic disease efforts on those populations most affected, 
particularly vulnerable populations and underrepresented 
minorities. Therefore, the agreement provides sufficient 
funding for an initiative to address chronic diseases and 
health disparities in these areas. The program must focus on 
kidney disease, obesity, diabetes, exercise medicine, and 
health disparities. Programs should have a strong existing 
track record of NIH funding in all of these areas, such as an 
NIH-funded Nutrition Obesity Research Center, Diabetes Research 
Center, Obesity Health Disparities Research Center, and O'Brien 
Kidney Center. Additionally, regional multi-institutional 
consortiums are strongly encouraged.
    Diabetes.--NIDDK is urged to support research to improve 
the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers and reduce amputations. 
Further, the agreement urges NIDDK to work with NIA to explore 
the relationship between diabetes and neurocognitive 
conditions, such as dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Finally, 
the agreement supports efforts to utilize adult-derived, non-
embryonic pluripotent stem cells for developing and 
commercializing the use of the stem cell-derived islets for 
both drug discovery and testing platforms and therapeutic 
delivery to patients with diabetes.
    Liver Diseases.--NIDDK is encouraged to continue to feature 
liver diseases research considering recent progress and 
improvements for liver disease patients.
    Medical Foods.--The agreement encourages further 
incorporation of research topics associated with medical foods 
and patient care into emerging research activities.

    NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS AND STROKE (NINDS)

    Cerebral Palsy.--The agreement strongly encourages NIH to 
prioritize and implement additional FOAs to significantly 
strengthen, accelerate, and coordinate Cerebral Palsy (CP) 
research to address priorities across the lifespan identified 
in the five to 10 year Cerebral Palsy Strategic Plan developed 
by NINDS and NICHD. FOAs should target basic and translational 
discoveries, including genetics, regenerative medicine, and 
mechanisms of neuroplasticity, as well as clinical studies 
aimed at early intervention, comparative effectiveness, and 
functional outcomes in adults. NIH is also encouraged to 
coordinate with other agencies, including CDC, to support 
additional research on preventing, diagnosing, and treating CP.
    Dystonia.--The agreement urges NINDS to follow the 
recommendations of the dystonia conference, including 
identifying new research and therapeutic needs that will lead 
to a better understanding of dystonia etiology and evaluation 
of the status of translational research that may lead to more 
treatment options for those affected by dystonia.
    Opioid Misuse and Addiction.--The agreement includes no 
less than $250,000,000 for targeted research related to opioid 
misuse and addiction, development of opioid alternatives, pain 
management, and addiction treatment. The agreement directs NIH 
to expand scientific activities related to research on 
medications used to treat and reduce chronic pain, and the 
transition from acute to chronic pain.
    POTS.--NIH is directed to submit the report on POTS 
requested in Senate Report 115-289, now overdue, no later than 
30 days after enactment of this Act. NIH is strongly encouraged 
to include an estimate of annual NIH funding allocated to POTS 
research in its publicly available RCDC report.

     NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ALLERGY AND INFECTIOUS DISEASES (NIAID)

    AIDS Conference.--The agreement includes $5,100,000 for the 
U.S. contribution to the AIDS2020 Conference.
    Antimicrobial Resistance.--The agreement includes 
$511,000,000 within NIAID for research related to combating 
antimicrobial resistance (AMR), an increase of $50,000,000. In 
April, the United Nations issued a report that, like the 2016 
review sponsored by the government of the United Kingdom and 
Wellcome Trust, warned that rampant overuse of antibiotics and 
antifungal medicines in humans, livestock, and agriculture 
could erase much of the improvement in public health achieved 
since the development of the first antimicrobials in the 1940s. 
The agreement includes $1,700,000 to fund a National Academies 
of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) study to examine 
and quantify the long-term medical and economic impacts of 
increasing AMR in the U.S. The review should examine progress 
made on the U.S. National Strategy and Action Plan for 
Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria, including domestic and 
international strategies employed by NIH, CDC, FDA, ASPR, USDA, 
and USAID. The NASEM report should make recommendations to 
address any gaps in research and development of therapeutics 
and diagnostics; efforts to move new products to market; animal 
and human surveillance, prevention efforts, international 
coordination and collaboration; and any other recommendations 
NASEM finds relevant to stopping the spread of AMR. The 
agreement directs NIAID to report on trends in AMR-related 
Research Project Grants, including the success rates for such 
grants, and requests an update on these activities in the 
fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification, including an 
overall assessment of the progress to date of efforts to 
address AMR.
    Celiac Disease.--The agreement encourages NIH to devote 
sufficient, focused research to the study of celiac disease, 
including the autoimmune causation underpinning the affliction. 
The agreement urges NIAID to better coordinate existing 
research and focus new research efforts toward causation and, 
ultimately, a cure of this disease. NIAID is encouraged to 
coordinate with other Institutes and Centers as appropriate and 
to submit its plan for coordination and execution of this 
research to the Committees no later than 90 days after 
enactment of this Act.
    Hepatitis B Virus.--The agreement urges additional targeted 
calls for Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) research to fund the many 
critical research opportunities identified by the scientific 
community in the Roadmap for a Cure. The agreement urges active 
participation and leadership by NIAID in the Director's newly 
established Trans-NIH Hepatitis B working group and requests 
that NIAID submit within 180 days of enactment of this Act, a 
research plan to pursue a cure for HBV in coordination with the 
other Institutes and Centers.
    HIV/AIDS.--The agreement provides an increase of no less 
than $25,000,000 over the fiscal year 2019 level for HIV/AIDS 
research.
    Centers for AIDS Research.--As part of the domestic HIV 
initiative, the agreement includes no less than $51,000,000 for 
the Centers for AIDS Research.
    Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Borne Diseases.--The agreement 
encourages NIH to issue requests for grant applications for 
research to investigate causes of all forms and manifestations 
of Lyme disease and other high-consequence tick-borne diseases, 
including post-treatment symptoms, as well as research to 
develop diagnostics, preventions, and treatments for those 
conditions, including potential vaccine candidates. The 
agreement urges NIAID, in coordination with CDC, to study the 
long-term effects on patients suffering from post-treatment 
Lyme disease syndrome, or ``chronic Lyme disease''. 
Specifically, the agreement urges NIAID to evaluate the 
effectiveness of laboratory tests associated with the detection 
of Borrelia burgdorferi to diagnose the disease early, which 
can improve the treatment of patients suffering from Lyme 
disease. The agreement is also aware of promising vaccine 
innovations to combat Borrelia and requests a report within 90 
days of enactment of this Act on agency activities to support 
Lyme vaccine development. The agreement also encourages NLM, in 
coordination with NIAID, to update its terminology in line with 
new research to more accurately reflect the long-term effects 
of Lyme disease.
    Medical Countermeasures.--The agreement supports the 
continuation of NIAID's medical countermeasures program, but 
expects the Institute to make sure any future contractor 
selected for the program can refine its animal models, 
particularly small animal models, to support the establishment 
of adequate countermeasure efficacy to expedite approval by the 
FDA. This requires close coordination with NIAID and the 
adequate level of technical personnel to carry out the 
program's important mission.
    Universal Flu Vaccine.--The agreement provides not less 
than $200,000,000 to advance basic, translational, and clinical 
research to develop a universal influenza vaccine, an increase 
of $60,000,000.
    Valley Fever.--The agreement notes the recent increase in 
the number of Valley Fever infections in Western States and 
urges NIAID to prioritize research on this fungal disease.

         NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF GENERAL MEDICAL SCIENCES (NIGMS)

    Institutional Development Award.--The agreement provides 
$386,573,000 for the Institutional Development Award (IDeA) 
program, an increase of $25,000,000.
    Maximizing Access to Research Careers.--The agreement 
recognizes the importance of the Maximizing Access to Research 
Careers (MARC) program and encourages the continuation and 
enhancement of efforts underway with our Nation's HBCUs. The 
agreement also encourages NIH to continue and strengthen its 
engagement of institutions located in rural parts of the U.S.

  EUNICE KENNEDY SHRIVER NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF CHILD HEALTH AND HUMAN 
                          DEVELOPMENT (NICHD)

    Impact of Technology and Digital Media on Children and 
Teens.--The agreement recognizes that children's and teens' 
lives increasingly involve widespread technology use and 
consumption of digital media. The agreement encourages NIH to 
prioritize research into how these types of stimuli affect 
young people's cognitive, physical, and socio-emotional 
outcomes, including attention, sleeping routines, and anxiety.
    Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units Network.--The agreement fully 
supports the work of the Maternal Fetal Medicine Units network 
(MFMU) and encourages NICHD to continue to build on its success 
by ensuring its highly efficient structure of multicenter 
collaborative research continues. There is particular concern 
that any change in the funding mechanism or structure for the 
MFMU could compromise the ability of the network to remain 
nimble and directly address the changing landscape of women's 
health, including to reduce health disparities. The agreement 
directs NICHD to submit a report to the Committees outlining 
any potential changes being considered to the funding mechanism 
or structure of the MFMU network within 90 days of enactment of 
this Act.
    Prenatal Opioid Use Disorders and Neonatal Abstinence 
Syndrome.--The agreement encourages NIH to coordinate with 
other agencies at HHS to support additional research on 
prevention, identification, and treatment of prenatal opioid 
exposure and neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), including the 
best methods for screening and treating pregnant women for 
opioid use disorder and the best methods for screening for NAS. 
Additionally, the agreement encourages NIH to build on the 
Advancing Clinical Trials in Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal study 
to enhance understanding of the impact of pharmacological and 
non-pharmacological treatment techniques on costs and outcomes 
in the short- term and longitudinally. The agreement further 
encourages NIH to coordinate with other agencies at HHS to 
support research on innovative care models to optimize care and 
long-term outcomes for families.
    Research in Pregnant and Lactating Women.--The Task Force 
on Research Specific to Pregnant Women and Lactating Women 
issued a report to the Secretary of HHS outlining 15 
recommendations to facilitate the inclusion of pregnant and 
lactating women in clinical research. The agreement commends 
the Secretary for extending the Task Force and believes this 
extension should be for at least an additional two years to 
continue to work towards healthcare professionals and consumers 
having accurate information on the safety and efficacy of drugs 
taken by these populations. NICHD should oversee its part of 
the implementation of the already released recommendations 
working with other relevant Institutes and Centers, CDC, and 
FDA. The agreement requests a progress report be provided in 
the fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification.

                      NATIONAL EYE INSTITUTE (NEI)

    Age-Related Macular Degeneration.--The agreement recognizes 
the tremendous strides in the treatment of patients with the 
``dry'' form of age-related macular degeneration and commends 
NEI for its planned first-in-human clinical trial that would 
test a stem cell-based therapy from induced pluripotent stem 
cells. The agreement supports NEI's prospective international 
study of patients that uses the latest advances in retinal 
imaging to identify biomarkers of the disease and targets for 
early therapeutic interventions.

      NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH SCIENCES (NIEHS)

    Hurricane Harvey Research.--The agreement includes 
$3,000,000 for the continued funding and expansion of research 
on the health effects of environmental exposures directly 
related to the consequences of Hurricane Harvey in 2017. The 
research should focus on the full Hurricane Harvey-affected 
region, conduct follow-up health research on affected 
populations on registrants, link to relevant government and 
non-profit intervention research programs, and provide critical 
information on disaster preparedness through data sharing and 
analysis.

                   NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON AGING (NIA)

    Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias.--The agreement 
provides an increase of $350,000,000 for Alzheimer's disease 
and related dementias research, bringing the total funding 
level in fiscal year 2020 to no less than $2,818,000,000.
    Diversity of Clinical Trials.--The agreement remains 
concerned about underrepresented populations in research, 
particularly clinical trials for Alzheimer's. The agreement 
directs NIH to report to the Committees within 180 days of 
enactment of this Act on how it is implementing the actions 
outlined in the National Strategy for Recruitment and 
Participation in Alzheimer's and Related Dementias Clinical 
Research, including NIA resources that have been dedicated to 
these efforts.
    EUREKA Prize.--The agreement requests a report within 180 
days of enactment of this Act on NIA's initial EUREKA prize 
competition, including the number of submissions received and 
any unexpected challenges or impediments encountered in 
executing the challenge, as well as lessons learned that could 
be applied to future Alzheimer's or other prize challenges. The 
agreement also requests that the report include any 
recommendations to enhance the model going forward.

       NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON ALCOHOL ABUSE AND ALCOHOLISM (NIAAA)

    Mobile Assessment Technology Research for Addictive 
Behaviors.--The agreement encourages NIAAA to support 
meritorious research to improve the prevention and treatment of 
substance misuse, addiction, and related consequences through 
the use of mobile technologies.

                NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON DRUG ABUSE (NIDA)

    Barriers to Research.--The agreement directs NIDA to 
provide a brief report on the barriers to research that result 
from the classification of drugs and compounds as Schedule I 
substances no later than 120 days after enactment of this Act.
    Cannabis Research.--The agreement encourages NIH to 
consider additional investment in studying the medicinal 
effects and toxicology of cannabidiol and cannabigerol.
    Methamphetamine Medication-Assisted Treatments.--The 
agreement urges NIDA to continue its ongoing trials to 
expeditiously find and approve a medication-assisted treatment 
for methamphetamine.
    Opioid Misuse and Addiction.--The agreement includes no 
less than $250,000,000 for targeted research related to opioid 
misuse and addiction, development of opioid alternatives, pain 
management, and addiction treatment. The agreement directs NIH 
to expand scientific activities related to research on 
medications used to treat and reduce chronic pain, and the 
transition from acute to chronic pain. Further, the agreement 
urges NIH to: (1) continue funding research on medication 
development to alleviate pain and to treat addiction, 
especially the development of medications with reduced misuse 
liability; (2) as appropriate, work with private companies to 
fund innovative research into such medications; (3) report on 
what is known regarding the transition from opioid analgesics 
to heroin and synthetic opioid use and addiction within 
affected populations; (4) conduct pilot studies to create a 
comprehensive care model in communities nationwide to prevent 
opioid misuse, expand treatment capacity, enhance access to 
overdose reversal medications, and enhance prescriber practice; 
(5) test interventions in justice system settings to expand the 
uptake of medications for treating opioid use disorder (OUD) 
and methods to scale up these interventions for population-
based impact; and (6) develop evidence-based strategies to 
integrate screening and treatment for OUD in emergency 
department and primary care settings. In addition, NIH should 
continue to sponsor research to better understand the effects 
of long-term prescription opioid use, especially as it relates 
to the prevention and treatment of opioid misuse and addiction. 
Further, the agreement notes NIDA has started to investigate 
the links among respiratory health, disease, and deaths from 
opioids to determine if addressing underlying respiratory 
physiology can prevent death due to respiratory failure during 
overdoses.

               NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF MENTAL HEALTH (NIMH)

    Suicide Prevention and Risk Detection Algorithms.--The 
agreement continues to encourage NIMH to prioritize its suicide 
screening and prevention research efforts to produce risk 
detection models that are interpretable, scalable, and 
practical for clinical implementation, including mental and 
behavioral healthcare interventions, to combat suicide in the 
U.S. In assessing research opportunities, the agreement 
encourages NIMH to consider the recommendations included in the 
Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention's A Prioritized Research 
Agenda for Suicide Prevention.

            NATIONAL HUMAN GENOME RESEARCH INSTITUTE (NHGRI)

    Computational Genomics and RNA Molecules.--The agreement 
urges NHGRI to continue to support research on RNA molecules 
and the mechanisms through which they affect biological 
processes that cause disease.
    Emerging Centers of Excellence in Genomic Sciences.--The 
agreement includes no less than $10,000,000 for a new 
competitively-awarded center-based grant program for Emerging 
Centers of Excellence. The purpose of these awards is to build 
capacity at institutions that are not prior or current grantees 
of the Centers of Excellence in Genomic Sciences program. The 
agreement urges NHGRI to include plans for sustainment of this 
capacity-building mechanism in its 2020 vision report.

    NATIONAL CENTER FOR COMPLEMENTARY AND INTEGRATIVE HEALTH (NCCIH)

    Pain Management.--The agreement urges NIH, along with DoD 
and VA, to continue to support research on non-pharmacological 
treatments for pain management to ensure the best quality of 
care for our Nation's veterans.

  NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON MINORITY HEALTH AND HEALTH DISPARITIES (NIMHD)

    Mental Health.--To address the multiple causes of suicide, 
the agreement urges NIMHD to develop a behavioral health 
approach focusing on at-risk populations and building the 
mental health workforce at the community level. The proposed 
model should improve mental health care access to underserved 
populations, including those in rural areas, while 
simultaneously providing training to potential rural behavioral 
health providers.
    Neuroscience Research in African-Americans.--The agreement 
urges the NIH Neurobiobank to work with NIMHD and relevant 
extramural partners to develop the infrastructure needed to 
accelerate the discovery of novel therapeutic targets for 
neuropsychiatric disorders utilizing post-mortem brain datasets 
from underrepresented ethnic minority groups, including 
African-Americans.
    Research Centers in Minority Institutions.--The agreement 
includes $75,000,000 for the Research Centers in Minority 
Institutions (RCMI) program to support critical infrastructure 
development and scientific discovery in historically minority 
graduate and health professional schools. The agreement also 
recognizes the importance of the RCMI Coordinating Center in 
ensuring that collectively, institutions can engage in multi-
site collaborative research.
    Research Endowment Program.--The agreement urges NIMHD to 
move forward with the recommendations made by the Advisory 
Council workgroup to restore endowment eligibility for the 
Research Endowment Program (REP) to the original Congressional 
intent, which includes both current and former centers of 
excellence. NIMHD is requested to report to the Committees on 
progress made to implement these recommendations prior to 
issuing its next FOA for REP.

 JOHN E. FOGARTY INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR ADVANCED STUDY IN THE HEALTH 
                             SCIENCES (FIC)

    Global Infectious Diseases.--The agreement urges FIC to 
continue its important work of building relationships with 
scientists abroad to foster a stronger, more effective science 
workforce and health research capacity on the ground, helping 
to detect infectious diseases and building the capacity to 
confront those diseases while improving the image of the U.S. 
though health diplomacy in their countries.

      NATIONAL CENTER FOR ADVANCING TRANSLATIONAL SCIENCES (NCATS)

    Clinical and Translational Science Awards.--The agreement 
provides $578,141,000 for Clinical and Translational Science 
Awards (CTSAs) and encourages NCATS to fund, through the 
existing CTSA hubs, programs to address disparities and the 
significant burden of diseases and other conditions that 
disproportionately affect minority and special populations. 
Accelerating this capacity will reduce the burden of disease 
and promote health equity. Applying the CTSA model to address 
long-standing regional health disparities can provide 
innovative, multi-disciplinary approaches to reducing the 
burden of disease among vulnerable populations.
    Cures Acceleration Network.--The agreement provides up to 
$60,000,000 for the Cures Acceleration Network.

                      OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR (OD)

    7q11.23 Duplication Syndrome.--Duplication 7 syndrome is a 
rare chromosomal abnormality and those affected by this 
chromosomal duplication are likely to experience severe 
behavioral and developmental disabilities requiring consistent 
medical treatments and therapies. NIH is strongly encouraged to 
expand research on rare genetic and chromosomal abnormalities 
such as 7q11.23 duplication syndrome.
    Adult Cellular Therapies.--The agreement encourages NIH, in 
coordination with FDA, to explore the feasibility and utility 
of an outcomes database for adult cellular therapies that are 
either FDA-approved or are being administered under FDA 
Investigational New Drug or Investigational Device Exemption 
protocols.
    All of Us Precision Medicine Initiative.--The agreement 
includes $500,000,000 for the All of Us precision medicine 
initiative. Funding provided in the 21st Century Cures Act is 
reduced by $37,000,000 in fiscal year 2020. Ensuring sustained, 
consistent funding for this study is important. Therefore, the 
agreement has chosen to replace this reduction and increase 
base funding for the program. The agreement directs NIH to 
continue its efforts to recruit and retain participants from 
historically underrepresented populations in biomedical 
research so that the All of Us scientific resources reflect the 
rich diversity of our country.
    Further, the agreement encourages NIH to continue to work 
with a broad array of children's hospitals and networks to 
leverage their expertise and ensure greater diversity in 
pediatric recruitment and enrollment.
    Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.--The agreement directs the 
NIH Director to facilitate further efforts involving, at a 
minimum, NINDS and NIA, to study Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 
(ALS) disease mechanisms and identify genes to facilitate the 
expeditious development of targeted therapies. These trans-NIH 
efforts shall bring together research results that will be 
available to academic researchers, non-profit organizations, 
and industry researchers, and will supplement, not supplant, 
existing NIH-supported activities for ALS research. The near-
term research opportunity to find a cure is real for ALS. Any 
such breakthroughs will have significant benefits for related 
neurological conditions including TBI, Parkinson's, and 
Alzheimer's. The agreement directs NIH to report to the 
Committees within 180 days of enactment of this Act on progress 
in furthering these research areas, specifically on key areas 
of focus for fiscal years 2020-2024.
    Autism.--The agreement encourages NIH to continue to 
aggressively invest in research on autism consistent with the 
objectives outlined in the Strategic Plan. The agreement also 
encourages NIH to support greater investment in research and 
collaborations focused on addressing the gaps outlined in the 
Strategic Plan, including studies to understand the 
intersection of biology, behavior, and the environment.
    Autoimmune Conditions.--Autoimmune diseases are more common 
in women than in men, typically manifesting in their 
childbearing years. They include conditions such as rheumatoid 
arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, celiac disease, 
inflammatory bowel disease, and type 1 diabetes and together 
affect an estimated five to seven percent of Americans. Many 
affected women live with a second autoimmune illness or other 
condition. Despite the impact of these diseases and conditions 
on a domestic population ranging between 15,000,000-25,000,000, 
there is no single office within NIH tasked with coordinating 
research across the agency, or examining the complex interplay 
among these diseases and conditions. The 2010 NASEM study on 
Women's Health Research identified autoimmune conditions as the 
``leading cause of morbidity in women, greatly affecting 
quality of life.'' Despite their impact, the report found that 
``little progress has been made in understanding the conditions 
better, in identifying the risk factors, or in developing 
diagnostic tools, better treatments, or cures.'' The agreement 
includes $1,500,000 for NIH to contract with NASEM to identify 
and review NIH's research efforts in this broad area of 
predominantly women's health. The review should explore NIH's 
research in autoimmune and coexisting disorders, including any 
barriers to such research, and the most promising areas for 
future research that would benefit the greatest number of 
patients. The review should also identify trends among the 
population suffering from these conditions, and any significant 
barriers to accurate diagnoses. Finally, the NASEM report 
should make recommendations for how NIH could improve and 
better coordinate research into these diseases and conditions, 
including the potential effects of establishing dedicated 
research entities within or external to NIH.
    Big Data.--Despite launching its STRIDES and Data Commons 
initiatives, NIH has little yet to show in the area of working 
with data. NIH has struggled to recruit the talent to lead 
efforts to build an analysis platform. NIH leadership 
recognizes it needs additional focus on how to consolidate and 
deliver data to the research community in a more usable and 
computationally minable form, but is challenged in how to do 
so. Part of the problem appears to be the salary restrictions 
of a civil service structure that never contemplated the costs 
of recruiting highly sought after elite technology talent. The 
Government Accountability Office (GAO) is directed to identify 
and assess the options available to NIH for securing the talent 
it needs to lead these efforts. GAO should consider how other 
agencies meet similar challenges, and whether statutory changes 
are necessary. The agreement also directs GAO to review how NIH 
funds computational talent in its grant awards and whether its 
funding models adequately reflect the cost of these skillsets 
to grantees. GAO should assess NIH's guidance for the resource-
sharing plan it requires for the typical grantee, and whether 
these plans are sufficient and can be sustained for ongoing 
analysis. NIH is urged to engage industry, academic, and other 
Federal partners to take advantage of cross-enterprise 
artificial intelligence products, research, and tools. 
Artificial Intelligence could play a vital role toward 
advancing the goals of the strategic plan by organizing, 
managing, and making data usable to researchers, institutions, 
and the public to drive outcomes. Finally, the agreement 
includes $30,000,000 to support the Chief Data Strategist's 
work in fiscal year 2020, and expects NIH to provide a spending 
plan for these funds within 30 days of enactment of this Act.
    Biomedical Research Facilities.--The bill provides 
$50,000,000 for grants to public and/or not-for-profit entities 
to expand, remodel, renovate, or alter existing research 
facilities or construct new research facilities as authorized 
under 42 U.S.C. section 283k. The agreement also directs NIH to 
allocate no less than 25 percent of funding for this program to 
Institutions of Emerging Excellence to ensure geographic and 
institutional diversity. Finally, the agreement urges NIH to 
consider recommendations made by the NIH Working Group on 
Construction of Research Facilities, including making awards 
that are large enough to underwrite the cost of a significant 
portion of newly constructed or renovated facilities.
    Brain Research through Advancing Innovative 
Neurotechnologies Initiative.--The agreement provides 
$500,000,000 for the BRAIN initiative, finally achieving the 
initial BRAIN 2025 report recommendation of $500,000,000 per 
year by fiscal year 2019. The agreement provides additional 
resources to significantly expand efforts to working with the 
BRAIN data. Neuroscience, and biosciences in general, need 
additional focus on how to consolidate and deliver data to the 
research community in a more usable and computationally minable 
form. The agreement expects to receive a report in the fiscal 
year 2021 Congressional Justification on the initiative's 
achievements in its first five years of operation and its 
objectives for the next five years, including NIH's plans to 
address the challenge of making large datasets usable.
    Clinical Research Professional Competency.--The agreement 
encourages NIH to continue considering the training needs of 
the clinical research workforce when determining best practices 
in conducting clinical trials.
    Clinical Trials Policy.--The agreement supports NIH's 
recent announcement to delay the implementation of certain 
registering and reporting requirements for basic experimental 
studies with humans. The agreement urges NIH to continue its 
efforts, including working with the basic research community, 
to achieve a balanced registration and reporting strategy that 
meets the interests of study participants, investigators, and 
taxpayers. NIH is directed to report to the Committees no less 
than 60 days prior to moving forward with any new proposals for 
registering basic experimental studies with humans as clinical 
trials.
    Ethnic and Racial Diversity in Cancer Development and 
Outcomes.--The agreement urges NIH, including NIMHD and NCI, to 
continue to support research on the cause, prevention, and 
treatment of cancer in populations with diverse cultural, 
racial, and ethnic composition. The agreement also encourages 
NCI to continue to consider an institution's research efforts 
that specifically address the cancer burden, risk factors, 
incidence, morbidity, mortality, and inequities in the 
geographic area it serves, when considering applications from 
cancer centers for NCI designation.
    Firearm Injury and Mortality Prevention Research.--The 
agreement includes $12,500,000 to conduct research on firearm 
injury and mortality prevention. Given violence and suicide 
have a number of causes, the agreement recommends the NIH take 
a comprehensive approach to studying these underlying causes 
and evidence-based methods of prevention of injury, including 
crime prevention. All grantees under this section will be 
required to fulfill requirements around open data, open code, 
pre-registration of research projects, and open access to 
research articles consistent with the National Science 
Foundation's open science principles. The Director of NIH is to 
report to the Committees within 30 days of enactment on 
implementation schedules and procedures for grant awards, which 
strive to ensure that such awards support ideologically and 
politically unbiased research projects.
    Foreign Threats to Research.--There remains concern about 
foreign threats to the research infrastructure in the U.S. In 
particular, the Chinese government has started a program to 
recruit NIH-funded researchers to steal intellectual property, 
cheat the peer-review system, establish shadow laboratories in 
China, and help the Chinese government obtain confidential 
information about NIH research grants. As the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation, HHS, and NIH continue to investigate the impact 
the Thousand Talents and other foreign government programs have 
had on the NIH research community, the agreement directs NIH to 
notify the Committees quarterly on the progress of the 
investigation, as well as institutions, scientists, and 
research affected. Further, the agreement directs NIH to 
carefully consider the NIH Advisory Committee's 
recommendations, including to implement a broad education 
campaign about the requirement to disclose foreign sources of 
funding and develop enhanced cybersecurity protocols. As 
recommended, NIH should use this campaign to help institutions 
develop best practices for how to handle these challenges, 
including training, communications materials, and how to 
improve vetting, education, and security. Further, NIH shall 
evaluate the peer-review system and their internal controls 
through a lens that takes into account national security 
threats. This includes holding those accountable who 
inappropriately share information from the peer-review process 
or illegally share intellectual property. The agreement notes 
the partnership between NIH and HHS' Office of National 
Security (ONS) on this issue and ONS's implementation of a 
formal NIH CI/Insider Threat program on NIH's behalf. The 
agreement believes this work should be expanded in fiscal year 
2020 and directs NIH to allocate no less than $5,000,000 for 
this work that ONS does on behalf of NIH.
    Frontotemporal Degeneration Research.--The agreement 
encourages NIH to continue to support a multi-site network of 
clinical centers to study genetic and sporadic cases of 
frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) and maintain progress toward 
biomarker discovery and drug development in clinical trials 
using these well-defined FTD cohorts. A key component of this 
network will be the development of a data biosphere that 
supports wide sharing of robust datasets, generated with 
powerful -omic platforms. Data sharing will enable the broader 
community of researchers outside of the clinical networks, 
particularly early career scientists, to take on the challenges 
currently confronting Alzheimer's disease and related dementias 
disorders with a wider array of expertise. Research has 
revealed that all forms of dementia may have a variety of root 
causes and display multiple underlying pathologies. Research on 
the related dementias is critical for understanding basic 
disease mechanisms that may be common across multiple forms of 
dementia and therefore speed the translation of this 
information into much-needed therapeutics. While the continued 
support of biomedical research offers hope for the future, too 
many families and individuals living with dementia cannot find 
the help they need today. Therefore, the agreement also urges 
NIH to support research on the development of new and improved 
dementia care practices and long-term supports and services. By 
supporting both types of research, NIH may advance progress 
toward future therapies and treatments while also helping 
people get the appropriate and effective care and support they 
need today.
    Harassment Policies.--The NASEM report released last year 
found that sexual harassment is rampant in the labs and 
institutions supported by NIH. The Committees believe NIH must 
play a more active role in changing the culture that has long 
perpetuated the problem. The Committees direct NIH to require 
institutions to notify the agency when key personnel named on 
an NIH grant award are removed because of sexual harassment 
concerns and to submit to the Committees plans to implement 
measures that attend to harassment in extramural settings with 
the same level of attention and resources as those devoted to 
other research misconduct. The Committees also direct NIH to 
support research in the areas identified in the report, 
including the psychology underlying harassment and the 
experiences and outcomes of diverse groups when subjected to 
harassment. Additionally, the Committees direct NIH to 
collaborate with NASEM to develop best practices for developing 
more diverse and inclusive cultures in the grantee research 
environments, including training individuals in institutions 
that receive NIH funds to recognize and address sexual 
harassment, and evaluating the efficacy of various sexual 
harassment training programs.
    Hepatitis C.--The agreement urges NIH to prioritize 
research aimed at supporting hepatitis C elimination.
    Human Microbiome Project.--The agreement encourages OD to 
continue working collaboratively with NIDDK and other relevant 
Institutes and Centers to expand and advance Human Microbiome 
Project research.
    IDeA States Pediatric Clinical Trials Network.--The 
agreement commends NIH for establishing the IDeA States 
Pediatric Clinical Trials Network (ISPCTN) to provide 
medically-underserved and rural populations with access to 
state-of-the-art clinical trials, apply findings from relevant 
pediatric cohort studies to children in IDeA State locations, 
and enhance pediatric research capacity to address unmet 
pediatric research needs in underserved areas. The agreement 
provides $15,000,000 in additional funding for the 
Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes Program to 
continue the ISPCTN program.
    Increasing Diversity in NIH Clinical Trials.--The agreement 
recognizes efforts by NIH to reduce health disparities by 
addressing significant barriers to clinical trial participation 
and directs the agency to ensure eligibility criteria for 
clinical trials funded by NIH do not create unintentional 
barriers to participation for racial and ethnic minorities as 
well as for patients with certain health conditions. The 
agreement directs NIH to revise existing protocol templates and 
guidelines for clinical trials that receive funding by the 
agency to include eligibility criteria that avoids 
inappropriate exclusions of racial and ethnic minorities by 
taking steps to account for variations in health status across 
racial and ethnic minority groups when determining eligibility 
criteria as well as ensuring exclusions based on health status 
are scientifically justified and appropriate.
    Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells.--The agreement directs NIH 
to provide funding to support translational research, as well 
as promote regional, collaborative consortiums to advance 
scientific knowledge in the area of induced pluripotent stem 
cells basic research. The agreement further instructs NIH to 
conduct an assessment of agency efforts to: (1) address the 
existing funding gap between basic science and clinical trial 
research; and (2) develop a framework that provides both new 
and existing grantees with funded opportunities for 
translational research. The agreement expects this information 
to be included in the fiscal year 2021 Congressional 
Justification.
    Intellectual Property.--The agreement encourages the 
Director to work with the HHS Assistant Deputy Secretary for 
National Security to improve the security of intellectual 
property derived from NIH-funded research. In particular, NIH 
is encouraged to: improve the security of the peer review 
system; augment the application process to identify funding 
that applicants receive from a foreign government; and assist 
the HHS Inspector General and appropriate law enforcement 
agencies to identify violations of U.S. law or policy.
    Intramural Nonhuman Primate Research.--The agreement 
recognizes the use of nonhuman primate research for the 
advancement of biomedical research. It also understands that 
NIH continues to seek scientific alternatives to reduce and 
replace nonhuman primate use in biomedical research. NIH 
reviews every project that uses nonhuman primates in research 
to ensure both the welfare of the animal and that there are no 
scientific alternatives that could replace an animal model. The 
agreement requests a report to the Committees no later than one 
year after enactment of this Act that includes a discussion of 
nonhuman primate use and efforts to reduce such research use 
specifically, an assessment of research alternatives, including 
benefits and limitations of such alternatives, cost estimates, 
and areas of further need for innovative alternatives. In the 
fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification, the agreement 
requests NIH include a discussion of research alternatives in 
use and those in development.
    Mucopolysaccharide Diseases.--The agreement encourages 
expanded research of treatments for neurological, chronic 
inflammation, cardiovascular, and skeletal manifestations of 
mucopolysaccharide (MPS) and ML diseases, with an emphasis on 
gene therapy. The agreement also encourages NIH to increase 
funding to grantees to incentivize MPS research, particularly 
given the age and small population of current researchers. 
Understanding the manifestations and treatments of both the 
skeletal and neurological disease continue to be the greatest 
areas of unmet need.
    Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.--The 
agreement commends NIH on its new Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) efforts, including its 2019 
conference on accelerating research into ME/CFS, the formation 
of the National Advisory Neurological Disorders and Stroke 
(NANDSC) Council Working Group, and the unanimous adoption of 
the working group's report and recommendations on September 4, 
2019. The agreement strongly encourages NIH to implement the 
recommendations in the NANDSC report, in particular to 
accelerate the identification of ME/CFS subtypes through the 
development of an ME/CFS Registry and Biorepository and to 
increase the number of ME/CFS research grant applications by 
investing in early career investigators as recommended in the 
NANDSC report. The agreement also recommends that NIH expand 
ME/CFS efforts, for example, by developing: (1) new ME/CFS 
disease specific funding announcements, including those with 
set-aside funds, to deliver needed diagnostics and treatments 
as quickly as possible; (2) an initiative to reach consensus on 
the ME/CFS case definition; and (3) mechanisms to incentivize 
researchers to enter the field.
    National Commission on Lymphatic Diseases.--OD and NHLBI 
are applauded for facilitating the 2015 Trans-NIH Lymphatics 
Symposium. Lymphatics research has the scientific potential to 
treat a variety of severe diseases, including heart disease, 
diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer. The Director is 
encouraged to establish a National Commission on Lymphatic 
Diseases or other appropriate mechanism to explore and make 
recommendations on the ongoing expansion and coordination of 
lymphatic diseases research NIH-wide.
    News Briefings.--Until recently, NIH provided the 
Committees with a summary of the day's news articles on itself, 
health and medical news, global health updates, and other 
topics affecting its operations. The agreement directs NIH to 
resume providing daily NIH news briefings within 14 days of 
enactment of this Act.
    Organ Donation and Transplantation.--The agreement includes 
$1,500,000 to contract with and fund a NASEM study to examine 
and recommend improvements to research, policies, and 
activities related to organ donation and transplantation. The 
report shall include: (1) identification of current challenges 
involved in modeling proposed organ allocation policy changes 
and recommendations to improve modeling; (2) recommendations 
about how costs should be factored into the modeling of organ 
allocation policy changes; (3) a review of scoring systems 
(e.g., CPRA, EPTS, KDPI, LAS, MELD, etc.) or other factors that 
determine organ allocation and patient prioritization and 
recommendations to assure fair and equitable practices are 
established, including reducing inequities affecting 
socioeconomically disadvantaged patient populations; (4) 
recommendations to update the OPTN's policies and processes to 
ensure that organ allocation decisions take into account the 
viewpoints of expert OPTN committees; and (5) such other issues 
as may be identified.
    Osteopathic Medical Schools.--The agreement notes concern 
about a lack of access to research funding for osteopathic 
medical schools through NIH, as osteopathic medicine is one of 
the fastest growing healthcare professions in the country, and 
realizes its vital role in treating our Nation's rural, 
underserved, and socioeconomically challenged populations.
    Pediatric Clinical Trials Authorized under Best 
Pharmaceuticals for Children Act.--The agreement directs that 
no less than $25,000,000 be used toward research in preparation 
for clinical trials authorized by the Best Pharmaceuticals for 
Children Act.
    Platform Technologies.--The agreement directs NIH to 
provide a report in the fiscal year 2021 Congressional 
Justification that identifies: (1) the challenges that 
currently limit NIH's ability to support the development of 
platform technologies, and how these might be addressed. 
Potential examples include: (a) low levels of engagement with 
researchers in the physical sciences, engineering, math, and 
computer science; (b) a culture that prioritizes hypothesis-
driven as opposed to technology-driven proposals; (c) the 
structure of the NIH, which is organized primarily around 
specific diseases or organs of the body; (d) a typical size and 
duration of research grants that may not be aligned with the 
level of investment required for advances in platform 
technologies; and (e) difficulty in supporting high-risk, high-
return ideas; (2) the specific unmet needs for basic, clinical 
and translational research that might motivate investment in 
transformational platform technologies that could be high-
impact and timely, given recent scientific and technological 
advances and unmet medical needs; and (3) changes that NIH and 
Congress should consider with respect to its ability to 
identify and fund promising research proposals for platform 
technologies. Examples include: (a) recruiting NIH personnel 
and members of study sections with relevant expertise; (b) 
supporting workshops and the development of roadmaps for 
platform technologies; (c) increasing funding mechanisms that 
are appropriate for platform technologies that are relevant to 
multiple NIH Institutes, such as the Common Fund or NIBIB; (d) 
increasing NIH's capacity to partner with industry on the 
development of platform technologies, such as use of Other 
Transactions authorities; (e) experimentation with different 
models for funding and managing research, such as the DARPA 
model for recruiting and empowering world-class program 
managers; (f) use of incentive prizes, milestone payments and 
open innovation techniques; and (g) funding non-profit research 
institutes that have an increased capacity to manage more 
complex research projects that require professional scientists, 
engineers, and product managers, not just graduate students and 
postdoctoral researchers. The agreement encourages NIH to 
engage the research community and industry as it develops its 
response to these questions and options.
    Precision Medicine and the Pediatric Population.--The 
agreement recognizes the potential that precision medicine 
holds for all populations, including children, and encourages 
NIH to prioritize timely and meaningful enrollment for the 
pediatric population, including healthy children and those with 
rare disease, in the All of Us program. The agreement requests 
an update within 60 days on the timing for the Special 
Populations Committee to provide recommendations regarding the 
practical considerations of child enrollment and data 
collection involving children. Additionally, the agreement 
directs that NIH provide an update on plans to ensure that the 
research cohort includes a sufficient number of children to 
make meaningful studies possible, the target date for 
enrollment to commence and how enrollment strategies will 
include input from pediatric stakeholders across the country 
with experience in pediatric clinical trial enrollment.
    Rare Diseases.--There is concern with unknown costs 
resulting from undiagnosed and untreated rare diseases. As a 
result, the agreement directs GAO to study what is known about 
the total impact rare diseases have on the U.S. economy, 
including direct medical costs, non-medical costs, loss of 
income, and the societal consequence of undiagnosed and 
untreated rare disease. No later than two years after the date 
of enactment of this Act, GAO shall provide a report on its 
findings to the Committees.
    Regenerative Medicine.--NIH is encouraged, in collaboration 
with FDA and HRSA, to engage experts and stakeholders to define 
data types and standards necessary to collect data and measure 
outcomes related to regenerative cell therapies and conduct 
real-world testing through a pilot outcomes database for 
regenerative adult cell therapies, including products 
administered under FDA Investigational New Drug or 
Investigational Device Exemption protocols.
    Spina Bifida.--The agreement encourages NIA, NIDDK, NICHD, 
and NINDS to study the causes and care of the neurogenic 
bladder and kidney disease to improve the quality of life of 
children and adults with Spina Bifida; to support research to 
address issues related to the treatment and management of Spina 
Bifida and associated secondary conditions, such as 
hydrocephalus; and to invest in understanding the myriad co-
morbid conditions experienced by individuals with Spina Bifida, 
including those associated with both paralysis and 
developmental delay. The agreement supports the specific 
efforts of NICHD to understand early human development; set the 
foundation for healthy pregnancy, and lifelong wellness of 
women and children; and promote the gynecological, andrological 
and reproductive health for people with Spina Bifida. 
Additionally, NICHD is encouraged to identify sensitive time 
periods to optimize health interventions; improve health during 
transition from adolescence to adulthood; and ensure safe and 
effective therapeutics and devices.
    Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions 
Initiative.--The agreement applauds NIH for its cross-cutting 
Simulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions Initiative 
and is pleased by the Initiative's attention to research that 
aims to address gaps in treatments for patients suffering from 
gastrointestinal, genitourinary, cardiac, and other disorders. 
NIH is encouraged to work collaboratively across its Institutes 
and Centers on innovative ways to expand treatment options for 
these often burdensome conditions.
    Temporomandibular Disorders.--For the first time, the 
nation's leaders in health and medicine are enlisting experts 
to review all aspects of TMD, generating recommendations for 
research, regulation, and policy. To continue to build on 
advances in coordinated research and treatment, the agreement 
asks OD, as it continues to work with NASEM on the study, to 
explore the creation of a NIH inter-Institute TMD working group 
and to report to the Committees within 90 days following the 
publication of the final report.
    Traumatic Brain Injury.--The agreement directs NIH to 
enhance its research efforts on alternative treatment methods 
for TBI and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including 
hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT). The agreement encourages 
NIH to partner with DoD and VA to research treatment 
alternatives such as HBOT for veterans living with PTSD and/or 
TBI.
    Trisomy 21.--The agreement includes $60,000,000 for support 
of the Investigation of Co-Occurring Conditions Across the 
Lifespan to Understand Down Syndrome (INCLUDE) Initiative. It 
is expected that this multi-year, trans-NIH research initiative 
may yield scientific discoveries that could significantly 
improve the health and quality of life of individuals with Down 
syndrome as well as millions of typical individuals. The 
agreement requests the Director provide a plan within 60 days 
of enactment of this Act that includes a timeline description 
of potential grant opportunities and deadlines for all expected 
funding opportunities so that young investigators and new 
research institutions may be further encouraged to explore 
research in this space. This plan should also incorporate 
pipeline research initiatives specific to Down syndrome.
    Tuberous Sclerosis Complex.--The agreement encourages the 
Director to apply recommendations from two recent NIH-sponsored 
workshops on Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC): the 
Neurodevelopmental Disorders Biomarkers Workshop held in 
December 2017 involving TSC and related neurodevelopmental 
disorders to take advantage of biomarker expertise and lessons 
learned across disease groups, and the workshop entitled 
Accelerating the Development of Therapies for Anti-
Epileptogenesis and Disease Modification held in August 2018 
for which TSC is a model disorder with the ability to diagnose 
TSC prior to onset of epilepsy.
    Urinary Tract Infections.--The agreement commends NIH for 
supporting research across the lifespan to better understand 
the genitourinary microbiome, the role of inflammation in 
bladder health, and the impact of these factors in urinary 
tract infections (UTIs). NIH should continue research in the 
development of new and novel therapies to treat and prevent 
UTIs, including small molecule candidates and other approaches 
that can disrupt infection and new antibiotics against 
extensively drug-resistant bacterial strains. The agreement 
supports the development of preventive therapies and new 
treatment strategies.
    Inclusion in Clinical Research.--The agreement directs NIH 
to fund a NASEM study examining and quantifying the long-term 
medical and economic impacts of the inclusion of women and 
racial and ethnic minorities in biomedical research and 
subsequent translational work, and has provided $1,200,000 to 
fund this effort. NIH is directed to report to the Committees 
on this issue and it should include a review of the existing 
research on the long-term economic benefits of increasing the 
participation of women and racial and ethnic minorities in 
clinical trials and biomedical research, including an analysis 
of fiscal implications of inclusion on the nation's overall 
healthcare costs; examine new programs and interventions in 
medical centers that are currently working to increase 
participation of women of lower socioeconomic status and women 
who are members of racial and ethnic minority groups; identify 
programs that are positively addressing issues of 
underrepresentation; and analyze whether and how those programs 
are replicable and scalable; and identify more inclusive 
institutional and informational policies and procedures to 
improve health outcomes for racial and ethnic minorities, 
including health referral forms, continuing education classes, 
and more.

                        BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES

    The bill includes $225,000,000 from HHS' Nonrecurring 
Expenses Fund for buildings and facilities. The agreement 
directs NIH to provide a report with the fiscal year 2021 
Congressional Justification describing the steps it has taken 
and will take to implement the recommendations in the 2019 
NASEM report Managing the NIH Bethesda Campus' Capital Assets 
in a Highly Competitive Global Biomedical Research Environment. 
There is a particular interest in the actions NIH is taking to 
apply the recommendations to update the Buildings and 
Facilities prioritization model, develop an annual budget 
request for Backlog of Maintenance and Repair, and strengthen 
its internal governance process, including assigning and 
empowering a senior leader to manage capital planning.
    In addition, the agreement directs NIH to provide quarterly 
briefings of its Buildings and Facilities maintenance and 
construction plans, including specific milestones for advancing 
projects, status of the project, cost, and priority. These 
updates should also highlight and explain any potential cost 
and schedule changes affecting projects.

   Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

    The agreement encourages SAMHSA to exercise maximum 
flexibility when developing funding opportunity announcements 
to ensure that all eligible applicants may apply.

                             MENTAL HEALTH

    Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics.--The 
agreement includes increased funding and directs SAMHSA to 
prioritize resources to entities within States that are part of 
the section 223(a) of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 
2014 (P.L. 113-93) demonstration and to entities within States 
that were awarded planning grants.
    Mental Health.--The agreement directs SAMHSA to provide a 
comprehensive plan to the Committees no later than 60 days 
after enactment of this Act identifying current gaps in mental 
health care programs, highlighting how programs can help close 
those gaps, and providing recommendations to meet the needs of 
those experiencing mental illness.
    National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative.--The agreement 
intends that $13,000,000 is for a new competitive process to 
expand support for universities, hospitals, and community-based 
programs, of which at least $4,000,000 is to be prioritized for 
mental health services for unaccompanied alien children. The 
agreement also provides an additional $2,000,000 for activities 
authorized under section 582(d) and (e) of the Public Health 
Service Act.
    Within the total provided for Mental Health Programs of 
Regional and National Significance (PRNS), the agreement 
includes the following amounts:

    Comprehensive Opioid Recovery Centers.--The agreement 
includes funding to provide grants, as authorized by section 
7121 of the SUPPORT Act (P.L. 115-271), to previous recipients 
of HRSA Rural Communities Opioid Response Program Planning 
Grants that provide comprehensive treatment and recovery 
services in rural communities, including Tribal communities.
    Criminal Justice Activities.--The agreement prioritizes 
funding for centers that provide assistance to those with 
severe mental health needs who are at risk of recidivism. The 
agreement encourages SAMHSA to prioritize applications from 
areas with high rates of uninsured individuals, poverty, and 
substance use disorders.
    Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health.--The agreement 
includes an increase to fund additional grants. The agreement 
continues to recommend providing grants to entities such as

insurance, or workers' compensation is involved.
    Colorectal Cancer Screenings.--The agreement encourages CMS 
to use its existing authority to increase access to colorectal 
cancer screenings by exploring options to reduce out-of-pocket 
costs associated with screening colonoscopies when a polyp or 
lesion is found and removed.
    Computed Tomography (CT) Colonography.--The agreement 
encourages CMS to consider existing evidence to determine 
whether CMS should cover CT colonography as a Medicare-covered 
colorectal cancer screening test under section 1861(pp)(1) of 
the Social Security Act.
    Data Collection Process for Laboratory Testing.--The 
agreement encourages CMS to continue to work with laboratory 
stakeholders to further refine and evaluate the data collection 
process under section 216 of the Protecting Access to Medicare 
Act of 2014 (P.L. 113-93) to ensure that the information

CMS to extend the pilot program established by a final 
regulation published on March 18, 2015, to allow limited 
wraparound benefits, or supplements, to individual health 
insurance coverage (or Basic Health Plan coverage). Wraparound 
coverage is a specialized offering targeted to help part-time

consultation with the Secretaries of Labor and Treasury, to, 
once enacted, move swiftly to implement legislation creating a 
secure Federal database and support States in collecting data 
and claims that will enable analysis of the utilization and 
prices of healthcare items and services.
    Medicare Coverage of Innovative Drugs and Products.--The 
agreement encourages CMS to explore different ways to reimburse 
for innovative drugs approved by FDA in a manner that protects 
beneficiary access and encourages continued innovation while 
preserving the Medicare trust funds.
    Medicare Coverage of In-Home Intravenous Immunoglobulin.--
The agreement is aware of a demonstration evaluating bundled 
payment covering items and services needed to administer 
intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) into beneficiaries with 
primary immunodeficiency diseases. The agreement is also aware 
of ongoing rulemaking pertaining to the permanent Medicare home 
infusion services payment for therapies like IVIG. As CMS 
continues with rulemaking for the permanent home infusion 
therapy benefit, the agreement encourages CMS to articulate 
this position in future rulemaking.
    Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program.--The agreement 
encourages CMS to minimize the regulatory barriers impeding 
potential or existing suppliers from delivering the Diabetes 
Prevention Program (DPP) to Medicare beneficiaries, and to 
allow the full range of CDC-recognized DPP providers to 
participate as Medicare DPP suppliers.

implemented policies that prevent consumers from purchasing 
stand-alone dental benefits and encourages CMS to permit the 
purchase of stand-alone dental plans separate from the purchase 
of qualified health plans beginning with the 2020 plan year. 
The agreement encourages CMS to report annually on State-level 
oral health and dental benefits available to adult populations, 
including pregnant women.
    Program Integrity.--The agreement notes the Committees have 
yet to receive the briefing on program integrity requested in 
Senate Report 115-289. The agreement requests the briefing from 
CMS's Center for Program Integrity within 60 days of enactment 
of this Act.
    Recovery Audit Program.--The agreement directs CMS to 
conduct an internal review of their Recovery Audit program in 
an effort to identify inefficiencies in the current system. CMS 
shall include their findings in the annual report to Congress.
    Reimbursement Coding for Reducing Opioid Consumption.--The 
agreement urges CMS to collaborate with the FDA and consider 
approved devices and therapies for unique post-surgery patient 
populations for effective pain management. In addition, CMS 
should take steps to improve tracking of patient pain scores 
and opioid consumption using alternative means for effective 
pain management.
    Revisions to Office Visit Services.--The agreement notes 
that the CMS final 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule rule 
outlines significant changes to how evaluation and management 
services will be documented and paid for beginning in 2021. The 
agreement encourages CMS to ensure that payment changes do not 
further exacerbate workforce shortages.
    Risk Corridor Program.--CMS is directed to provide a yearly 
report to the Committees detailing any changes to the receipt 
and transfer of payments.
    Robotic Stereotactic Radiosurgery.--The agreement 
encourages CMS not to make payment changes to robotic 
stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and robotic stereotactic body 
radiation therapy (SBRT) in the freestanding or hospital 
outpatient setting as CMS complies with the Patient Access and 
Medicare Protection Act and the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. 
The agreement encourages CMS to maintain stable payment for 
robotic SRS and robotic SBRT performed in Core-Based 
Statistical Areas that are not randomly selected to participate 
in the alternative payment model.
    Rural Healthcare Facilities.--The agreement encourages CMS 
to continue working with States and State hospital associations 
on alternative payment models for rural medical centers that 
support future financial stability and announce potential 
models in 2020 with participants who demonstrate clear 
community support for engaging these new programmatic 
flexibilities.
    Telehealth.--To address inconsistency with billing and 
coding across Medicaid, the agreement encourages CMS to issue 
guidance outlining a recommended, but voluntary, set of billing 
codes, modifiers and/or place of service designations for use 
in State Medicaid programs.
    Therapeutic Foster Care.--The agreement requests an update 
in the fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification on the 
study requested in House Report 114-699.
    Underperforming Healthcare Facilities.--Within six months 
of enactment of this Act, the agreement directs CMS to provide 
the Committees a report on the resources the agency requires to 
ensure all nominees for the program become full participants, 
subject to the special focus facility (SFF) program's enhanced 
surveying and progressive enforcement standards. The agreement 
further directs CMS to disclose the names of nursing homes that 
are eligible for the SFF program, but are not officially part 
of SFF, on the Nursing Home Compare website.
    Workforce Capacity for Infectious Diseases and the Opioid 
Epidemic.--The agreement continues to encourage CMS to 
collaborate with SAMHSA, CDC, and HRSA to support education and 
training for medical providers on the frontlines of the opioid 
epidemic to help expand access to comprehensive, coordinated 
care for opioid addiction and related infectious diseases.

             Administration for Children and Families (ACF)


                   LOW INCOME HOME ENERGY ASSISTANCE

    The agreement includes a new provision limiting annual 
decreases in State allocations, preventing States from 
receiving less than 97 percent of what they received the prior 
fiscal year.
    Within 120 days of enactment of this Act, the agreement 
directs ACF to submit to the Committees and make publicly 
available a report evaluating the program's formula and 
allocations of funding among States, including an assessment of 
available data, how the formula currently addresses annual 
fluctuations in formula factors, and the percentage of eligible 
households served, average assistance amount, and percentage of 
home energy costs covered by that amount by State.

                     REFUGEE AND ENTRANT ASSISTANCE

    The agreement notes that appropriate consultation with 
Congress is required by statute in advance of the 
Administration's determination on the number of refugees to be 
admitted during the coming fiscal year. In times of reductions 
in refugee arrivals, the agreement encourages HHS, to the 
extent practicable, to ensure that resettlement agencies can 
maintain their infrastructure and capacity at a level to 
continue to serve all refugees and to ensure future arrivals 
are adequately served. The agreement strongly encourages the 
Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) to continue to meet, on no 
less than a bi-monthly basis, with outside organizations with 
expertise in ORR programs to provide updates and hear the 
perspective of these stakeholders.
    Transitional and Medical Services.--The agreement strongly 
encourages ORR to increase the percentage of eligible arrivals 
served by the matching grant program and to provide flexibility

for services for foreign national victims and $8,255,000 for 
services for U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents. The 
agreement includes no less than $3,500,000 for the National 
Human Trafficking Hotline and urges extension of the 
cooperative agreement from 3 to 5 years to align with other 
Federally-funded hotlines.

Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC)

    Children Separated from a Parent or Legal Guardian.--The 
agreement includes a public reporting requirement with respect 
to children who have been separated from a parent or legal 
guardian. In addition, the agreement notes HHS has not yet 
complied with the reporting requirements included in Senate 
Report 115-289 regarding the demographics of separated children 
and expects the Department to begin providing this information.
    Facility Oversight.--ORR is expected to maintain strict 
oversight of all ORR-funded care provider facilities and to 
report and correct violations of Federal, State, or local codes 
related to standards of childcare or the wellbeing of children. 
Within 60 days of enactment of this Act, ORR is directed to 
submit to the Committees a report detailing the number and 
nature of violations by facility, and steps taken to address 
such infractions.
    Indigenous Languages.--ORR is encouraged, to the extent 
possible, to provide culturally competent, in person education 
and translation services to children in custody.
    Length of Care.--The agreement directs ORR to provide a 
briefing to the Committees within 120 days of enactment of this 
Act on options and plans for children who have been in ORR 
custody for extended periods of time. In addition, ORR is 
directed to continue to prioritize case management services and 
staffing, including Federal Field Specialists, lowering the 
ratio of children per case coordinator.
    The agreement includes language continuing current law 
regarding the operational directives issued to modify sponsor 
suitability requirements, which significantly reduced the 
length of time children spend in care. The agreement expects 
HHS to continue to work on efforts to reduce time in care and 
to consider additional policy changes that can be made to 
release children to suitable sponsors as safely and 
expeditiously as possible. The agreement does not provide 
further direction on this issue.
    Mental Health Services.--The agreement encourages ORR to 
continue collaborating with the National Child Traumatic Stress 
Network and notes that no less than $4,000,000 is included in

    New Models of Care Delivery.--ORR is urged to include in 
the fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification information 
about any plans being considered for new models of care 
delivery, along with a justification for how new models could 
best meet the needs of children in ORR care. When exploring the 
feasibility of such models, ORR is expected to prioritize 
community engagement, the use of pilot projects with short-term 
duration to demonstrate proof of concept before making 
significant or long-term investments, and a collaborative and 
transparent communications strategy with external stakeholders 
and Congress.
    Office of Inspector General Report Recommendations.--The 
agreement requests an update in the fiscal year 2021 
Congressional Justification on the status of ORR's 
implementation of recommendations made in recent inspector 
general reports.
    Records Requests.--The agreement expects ORR to maintain 
records and respond to records requests consistent with the 
requirements of section 552 of title 5, U.S. Code, for 
information related to all children in care, regardless of 
whether such children are housed in Federal facilities or, to 
the extent possible, non-Federal facilities managed by 
contractors or other private entities.
    Services for Children.--The agreement includes an increase 
in funding for legal services, child advocates, and post-
release services to support the expansion of State-licensed 
shelters, and to allow for the resumption and expansion of 
services to children released from ORR care. Using funds 
provided in this agreement, combined with funding from the 
Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Humanitarian 
Assistance and Security at the Southern Border Act, 2019 (P.L. 
116-26), ORR is directed to continue to expand such services 
beyond currently estimated levels, including for children 
released in high-release communities.
    The agreement strongly encourages ORR to notify legal 
service providers at the time new grant awards are made and 
prior to opening a shelter, and to provide monthly estimates of 
funded capacity by shelter. Additionally, the agreement 
strongly encourages ORR to ensure that all UAC shelters provide 
space for legal service providers to meet with children.
    Within amounts provided for post-release services in this 
agreement and combined with funds from P.L 116-26, ORR is 
directed to expand post-release services capacity to eliminate 
the waitlist of children qualifying for Trafficking Victims 
Protection Reauthorization Act-mandated services, and to expand 
services to children that case managers identify would benefit 
from such services.
    Sibling Placement.--The agreement directs ORR to place 
siblings in the same facility, or with the same sponsor, to the 
extent practicable, and so long as it is appropriate and in the 
best interest of the child.
    Spend Plan.--The agreement directs ORR to incorporate all 
funding provided in this Act into a comprehensive spend plan 
that must be submitted to the Committees every 60 days in 
accordance with section 410 of the Emergency Supplemental 
Appropriations for Humanitarian Assistance and Security at the 
Southern Border Act, 2019 (P.L. 116-26).
    Sponsorship Suitability Determination Process.--The 
Department is directed to ensure all grantees are provided 
clear guidance to communicate with potential sponsors regarding 
current law regarding the use of personal information collected 
as part of the sponsor suitability determination process. The 
agreement expects consistent monitoring to ensure program 
policies are applied appropriately by all grantees in an effort 
to place children with sponsors as safely and expeditiously as 
practicable.
    State Licensed Shelters.--The agreement directs ORR to 
prioritize licensed, community-based residential care 
placements (including long-term and transitional foster care 
and small group homes) over large-scale institutions and to 
notify the Committees prior to all new funding opportunity 
announcements, grant or contract awards, or plans to lease or 
acquire property. Such notification should include associated 
timelines and costs.
    Temporary Influx Shelters.--The agreement includes language 
continuing current law conditions on the use of temporary 
influx shelters, strengthens oversight and monitoring of 
facilities, and requires Congressional notifications and 
reporting requirements if a shelter is operationalized. The 
agreement requests HHS submit a report to the Committees within 
90 days of enactment of this Act detailing the barriers to 
State-licensing, including any State child welfare laws and 
regulations, that could not be met for any influx facility 
operational in fiscal year 2019. If an influx shelter is opened 
in fiscal year 2020, ORR shall submit a report to the 
Committees with the same information within 90 days. In 
addition, the agreement notes that the spend plan required 
every 60 days must include a detailed cost breakdown of any 
facility, regardless of its operational status.
    Tender Age Children.--The agreement directs ORR to include 
in the fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification information 
on efforts to ensure developmentally appropriate care for 
tender age children, including placement options, services and 
staff training, as well as an assessment of circumstances under 
which very young children are referred to ORR.

    Early Head Start Expansion (EHS) and EHS-Child Care 
Partnerships.--The agreement modifies bill language to simplify 
the administration of EHS Expansion and EHS-Child Care 
Partnerships (EHS-CCP) grants, but does not otherwise change 
the use of funds provided for such purposes. The agreement 
continues to strongly support EHS Expansion and EHS-CCPs, and 
accordingly, the agreement includes at least $905,000,000 for 
such purposes, an increase of $100,000,000. Since fiscal year 
2014, these funds have supported both the expansion of

EHS providers and local child care programs. The agreement 
directs ACF to continue to prioritize equally EHS Expansion and 
EHS-CCP, as determined by the needs of local communities. The 
agreement expects that any funds used for EHS Expansion and 
EHS-Child Care-Partnership grants that are re-competed would 
continue to be used for such purposes. Finally, the agreement

and other traumatic experiences that can negatively impact 
child development and lead to disruptions in classroom 
environments. The agreement directs the Administration to allow 
flexibility to meet local needs while focusing these funds on 
staff training for trauma-informed care and identification of 
signs of addiction and hardship; mental health consultation 
services to provide expert care and counseling to families and 
the Head Start workforce; and additional staffing to Head Start 
classes in high-risk substance use communities to maintain

programs that may be eligible for funding under title IV-E of 
the Social Security Act.
    Regional Partnership Grants.--The agreement includes 
$10,000,000 for Regional Partnership Grants (RPGs) and strongly

                               TITLE III


                        DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION


                      School Improvement Programs

    Homeless Children and Youth.--The Department implemented a 
reorganization of offices which in part altered the 
administration of the McKinney-Vento program, recently 
strengthened in the reauthorization of the Elementary and 
Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The Department shall brief the 
Committees no later than 60 days after enactment of this Act on 
the resources currently being devoted to monitoring compliance 
with ESEA accountability and State and local report card 
provisions related to homeless children and youth and 
supporting State educational agencies (SEA) and local 
educational agencies (LEA) in achieving and maintaining 
compliance with such provisions; the internal support within 
other program offices in the Department being provided to 
assist with administration of the Education for Homeless 
Children and Youth (EHCY) program; and the resources available 
for monitoring compliance with EHCY program requirements at the 
SEA and LEA level.
    Education for Native Hawaiians.--The agreement includes 
sufficient funding for the Native Hawaiian Education Council.
    Alaska Native Education Equity.--The Department is directed 
to make every effort to ensure that grants are awarded well in 
advance of the school year, to maximize grantees' ability to 
hire the necessary staff and have their programs in place by 
the start of Alaska's school year in mid-August. The Department 
is directed to ensure that Alaska Native Tribes, Alaska Native 
regional non-profits, and Alaska Native corporations have the 
maximum opportunity to compete successfully for grants under 
this program by providing these entities multiple opportunities 
for technical assistance in developing successful applications 
for these funds, both in Alaska and through various forms of 
telecommunications. Finally, the Department is encouraged to 
include as many peer reviewers as possible who have experience 
with Alaska Native education and Alaska generally on each peer 
review panel.
    Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) Grants.--The 
Department should examine State and local expenditures, 
outlined by specific authorized activities, and provide 
information about the most common uses of funds, as well as 
information about how LEAs plan to evaluate the effectiveness 
of their activities. The Department also should study how SEAs 
are collecting data from LEAs, including how States are 
verifying that funds are being used in an authorized manner 
and, as applicable, in accordance with required comprehensive 
needs assessments, and that LEAs are meeting the objectives and 
outcomes described in their applications. The Department should 
publish reports on these studies publicly and is encouraged to 
conduct such studies periodically as appropriate. Finally, the 
agreement does not provide direction regarding guidance on 
allowable uses of funds.
    SSAE Technical Assistance and Capacity Building.--The 
agreement expects funds reserved for technical assistance and 
capacity building to be used strictly to support SEAs and LEAs 
in carrying out authorized activities under this program. In 
the fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification, the 
Department shall provide current and planned expenditures, and 
include a plan for how resources will be spent to build the 
capacity of SEAs and LEAs and provide technical assistance. The 
plan should include how resources will be spent helping SEAs 
and LEAs vet evidence, implement evidence-based interventions, 
and incorporate evidence-based SSAE activities into school 
improvement strategies.

                            Indian Education

    National Activities.--Within the total, the agreement 
includes no less than $2,811,000 for Native American language 
immersion programs authorized under section 6133 of ESEA. These 
funds should be allocated to all types of eligible entities, 
including both new and existing language immersion programs and 
schools, to support the most extensive possible geographical 
distribution and language diversity. Further, the Department is 
directed to give the same consideration to applicants that 
propose to provide partial immersion schools and programs as to 
full immersion, as the local Tribes, schools, and other 
applicants know best what type of program will most effectively 
assist their youth to succeed.
    Special Programs for Indian Children.--The President's 
budget request includes up to $10,000,000 to expand the ability 
of families to choose high-quality educational opportunities to 
meet the needs of Native youth. The Department shall only 
pursue this initiative if supported by Tribes after Tribal 
consultation. Accordingly, the Department is directed to 
include information on the planned use of funds under the 
Special Programs for Indian Children program in the operating 
plan required under section 516 of this Act, and to brief the 
Committees not less than 30 days prior to posting any notice 
inviting applications under this program.

                       Innovation and Improvement

    Education Innovation and Research (EIR).--Within the total 
for EIR, the agreement includes $65,000,000 to provide grants 
for social and emotional learning (SEL). Within 90 days of 
enactment of this Act, the Department is directed to brief the 
Committees on plans for carrying out the SEL competition. In 
addition, the Department shall provide notice to the Committees 
at least seven days before grantees are announced.
    In addition, within the total for EIR, the agreement 
includes $65,000,000 for Science, Technology, Education, and 
Math (STEM) and computer science education activities. This 
could also include grants to SEAs, including in partnership 
with non-profit organizations, for State-led efforts to 
implement, replicate, or expand Statewide professional 
development programs. Within the STEM and computer science set-
aside, awards should expand opportunities for underrepresented 
students such as minorities, girls, and youth from families 
living at or below the poverty line to help reduce the 
enrollment and achievement gap. The agreement supports the 
Department's prioritization of computer science education in 
fiscal year 2019 EIR grant competitions and the Department 
should continue this in fiscal year 2020.
    Grant Priorities.--There is significant demand from the 
field to test many types of strategies and to examine promising 
techniques that can be scaled-up in different settings. EIR 
should continue to support diverse and field-initiated 
interventions. The Department is directed to brief the 
Committees on the fiscal year 2020 funding opportunities 
available under this program, including any specified 
priorities, not less than 30 days prior to releasing a notice 
inviting applications.
    Rural Set-Aside.--The Department is encouraged to take 
steps necessary to ensure the set-aside is met and that EIR 
funds are awarded to diverse geographic areas.
    Charter Schools Program.--The agreement includes 
$140,000,000 for replicating and expanding high-quality charter 
school models; $225,000,000 for grants to State entities to 
support high-quality charter schools; and $60,000,000 for 
facilities financing assistance, of which not less than 
$50,000,000 shall be for the Credit Enhancement program. In 
addition, the agreement continues support for developer grants 
to establish or expand charter schools in underserved, high-
poverty, rural areas, as referenced in the joint explanatory 
statement accompanying P.L. 115-245.
    Arts in Education.--The agreement provides funding for each 
activity within this program at no less than the fiscal year 
2019 level.
    Ready to Learn.--In addition to language in House Report 
116-62, the Department should refrain from making changes to 
the Ready to Learn program that would impede or impair 
production and nationwide distribution of television content, 
digital content, and supplemental materials through local 
public telecommunications entities.
    Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED).--Within 
SEED, the Department is directed to support professional 
development that helps educators incorporate SEL practices into 
teaching, and to support pathways into teaching that provide a 
strong foundation in child development and learning, including 
skills for implementing SEL strategies in the classroom. Within 
90 days of enactment of this Act, the Department is directed to 
brief the Committees on plans for supporting SEL within SEED. 
In addition, the Department shall provide notice to the 
Committees at least seven days before grantees are announced.
    In addition, the SEED program is an ideal vehicle for 
helping ensure that more highly trained school leaders are 
available to serve in traditionally underserved LEAs. 
Therefore, the Secretary shall use a portion of funds made 
available for SEED to support the preparation of principals and 
other school leaders.
    Finally, students in rural public schools and public 
schools serving high percentages of Native students have 
particularly inequitable access to accomplished teachers. The 
Department should strongly consider establishing a priority for 
SEED projects addressing this issue and to increase the number 
of teachers in such schools who have earned a nationally 
recognized advanced credential.

                 Safe Schools and Citizenship Education

    Promise Neighborhoods.--The agreement includes $6,000,000 
for additional extension awards for grantees that received 
extension grants in fiscal year 2018 and have demonstrated 
positive and promising results. This funding is intended to 
support the final phase-out of Federal support.
    School Safety National Activities.--For fiscal year 2020, 
$10,000,000 is provided for awards to SEAs, LEAs, or consortia 
of LEAs to increase the number of qualified, well-trained 
counselors, social workers, psychologists, or other mental 
health professionals that provide school-based mental health 
services to students. To promote the sustainability of these 
services, the Secretary shall require that awards include a 25 
percent match from grantees and require that the awards do not 
supplant existing mental health funding. Within 90 days of 
enactment of this Act, the Department is directed to brief the 
Committees on plans for carrying out the competition. In 
addition, the Department shall provide notice to the Committees 
at least seven days before grantees are announced.
    The Department is also directed to continue a demonstration 
project initiated in fiscal year 2019 to test and evaluate 
innovative partnerships to train school-based mental health 
professionals.
    Demonstration projects and competitions to train and 
increase the number of school-based mental health professionals 
support the implementation of trauma-informed practices and 
other mental health supports in schools. Fostering trauma-
informed cultures in schools helps both students and staff 
succeed by addressing the impacts of trauma; improves school 
capacity to identify, refer, and provide services to students; 
can improve staff retention and help keep students in school; 
and support learning environments where students feel safe, 
supported, and ready to learn.
    Opioid Substance Use Disorder and Prevention.--The 
Department has implemented a priority in grant competitions for 
projects addressing opioid substance use disorder and 
prevention. More must be done to prevent opioid substance use 
disorder by students and address the mental health needs of 
students affected by opioid substance use disorder in their 
families or communities.
    Project SERV.--The Department should ensure that funding 
made available for Project SERV grants is promptly awarded to 
eligible entities located in areas with high rates of community 
violence to restore any learning environment that was disrupted 
by a violent or traumatic crisis.
    School Safety and Climate.--The Department is encouraged to 
partner with outside experts and other Federal agencies as 
appropriate to develop best-practices to improve school safety 
and school climate.
    State and Federal Coordination on School Safety and 
Climate.--Many States have researched and in some cases 
provided reports on the local needs and solutions to maintain 
safe and welcoming school climates. The Department is 
encouraged to review such reports and support SEAs, as 
authorized in ESEA.
    School Safety Clearinghouse and Mental Health Services for 
Students.--The Department is directed to brief the Committees 
within 90 days of enactment of this Act on: (1) the progress 
made by the Department in identifying, assessing, and 
disseminating evidence-based approaches to maintaining safe 
schools and positive learning environments for all students, 
including establishing a clearinghouse for such approaches; and 
(2) improving and expanding access to mental health services 
for students.

                      English Language Acquisition

    The Department is encouraged to help SEAs and LEAs make the 
best use of funding within this program and other Department 
programs to support English learners.

                           Special Education

    Education Materials in Accessible Formats for Students with 
Visual Impairments.--The agreement provides an increase of 
$500,000 and recognizes the ongoing progress made with the 
tools and services provided under Educational Technology, 
Media, and Materials that have allowed more than 620,000 
students with disabilities free access to more than 700,000 
books in digitally accessible formats. The Department is 
encouraged to continue to expand this program's reach to K-12 
students in underserved areas.
    Promoting Development of Social Skills for Students with 
Disabilities.--Within the total for Educational Technology, 
Media, and Materials, the agreement includes $1,000,000 for a 
demonstration project to facilitate the development of new 
educational strategies and programming for students with 
disabilities who could benefit from social skills instruction. 
This should include utilizing new technologies and evidence-
based curriculums in instructional settings, including advanced 
social robotics that integrate evidence-based practices to 
improve social skills and generate positive educational 
outcomes in students with disabilities.
    Medicaid Services.--Opportunities exist to streamline 
access to and improve the quality of special education 
services, and steps should be taken to reduce administrative 
barriers for providing health services in and in coordination 
with schools. The Office of Special Education and 
Rehabilitative Services should coordinate with the Centers for 
Medicare & Medicaid Services to develop training and provide 
technical assistance to assist with billing and payment 
administration for Medicaid services in schools.
    Special Olympics.--Within the total for Technical 
Assistance and Dissemination, the agreement includes 
$20,083,000, an increase of $2,500,000 above the fiscal year 
2019 funding level, to support activities authorized by the 
Special Olympics Sport and Empowerment Act, including Project 
UNIFY.

                        Rehabilitation Services

    Vocational Rehabilitation State Grants.--The agreement 
directs the Secretary to submit a report within 90 days of 
enactment of this Act to the Committees evaluating any changes 
in trends in employment outcomes for individuals with 
disabilities served by State vocational rehabilitation programs 
before and after the implementation of the WIOA. The agreement 
directs the Secretary to ensure appropriate State level 
implementation of the Rehabilitation Act, which may include the 
Department providing technical assistance as necessary.

           Special Institutions for Persons with Disabilities

    American Printing House for the Blind.--The agreement 
includes $2,000,000, an increase of $1,000,000, to continue and 
expand the Center for Assistive Technology Training regional 
partnership established in fiscal year 2019.
    National Technical Institute for the Deaf.--The agreement 
includes $5,500,000 to continue the National Technical 
Institute for the Deaf's (NTID) existing regional partnership 
in fiscal year 2020, intended to expand NTID's geographical 
reach and improve access to postsecondary STEM education and 
employment for students who are deaf or hard of hearing in 
underserved areas.
    Gallaudet University.--The agreement includes $3,000,000, 
an increase of $1,000,000, to continue the regional partnership 
established in fiscal year 2019 focused on early language 
acquisition for children from birth through age three who are 
deaf or hard of hearing.

                 Career, Technical, and Adult Education

    The Department is encouraged to establish the on-line 
portal for career and technical education students described in 
section 114(e)(7)(K) of the Carl D. Perkins Career and 
Technical Education Act.
    The Department is encouraged to work with the Departments 
of Defense, Labor, and Commerce to develop a pilot project to 
increase the quality of and participation in career and 
technical education programs that would help develop the 
skilled workforce needed for new submarine construction.

                      Student Financial Assistance

    Pell Grants.--The agreement increases the maximum award by 
$150, to $6,345 in academic year 2020-2021.
    Federal Work Study.--Within the total for Federal Work 
Study, the agreement includes $10,051,000, for the Work 
Colleges program authorized under section 448 of the Higher 
Education Act (HEA).

              Federal Direct Student Loan Program Account

    The Department shall brief the Committees of jurisdiction 
within 45 days of enactment of this Act on actions planned or 
taken: (1) to address and implement recommendations outlined in 
a GAO report titled ``Public Service Loan Forgiveness: 
Improving the Temporary Expanded Process Could Help Reduce 
Borrower Confusion'' (GAO-19-595); (2) to simplify the 
Temporary Expanded Public Service Loan Forgiveness (TEPSLF) 
application process so borrowers can apply for TEPSLF at the 
same time as they apply for Public Service Loan Forgiveness 
(PSLF); (3) to provide more information to borrowers denied 
TEPSLF on the reason for the denial; (4) to conduct outreach to 
borrowers who may be eligible for TEPSLF; and (5) to improve 
administration of the PSLF program, including by implementing 
GAO's recommendations for that program.

                       Student Aid Administration

    Ability to Benefit.--The Department shall issue guidance 
that serves as a simple and clear resource for implementing 
Ability to Benefit at IHEs, which should restate the updated 
definition of a career pathway program and contain answers to 
frequently asked questions about program eligibility.
    Student Loan Servicing.-- The agreement includes 
$1,768,943,000 for Student Aid Administration. The Department 
has stated that the implementation of the Next Generation 
Servicing Environment (Next Gen) will address problems with the 
current student loan servicing environment and improve 
accountability and services for students, borrowers and 
families. However, full implementation of Next Gen will take 
several years. In the interim, the Department should continue 
to take steps to improve the current servicing environment.
    In addition to continuing statutory requirements from 
fiscal year 2019, the agreement includes new provisions 
directing the Department to hold servicers accountable for 
high-quality outcomes, noncompliance with Federal Student Aid 
(FSA) guidelines, contract requirements (e.g., an understanding 
of Federal and State law), and applicable laws, including 
misinformation provided to borrowers. In addition to provisions 
ensuring accountability and high-quality service from student 
loan servicers, the agreement also includes a new provision 
ensuring similar expectations, as applicable, for all of FSA's 
contractors. As part of this effort, it is expected that FSA 
will monitor performance and service delivery at the point of 
contact between contractors and borrowers, as applicable, to 
ensure such accountability and high-quality service.
    The Department should ensure, consistent with current 
statutory requirements, that the transition to Next Gen, 
including the Enhanced Processing Solution, does not rely on a 
single-servicer model. In addition to the directives in House 
Report 116-62, the agreement directs FSA to provide a detailed 
strategic plan for Next Gen to the Committees within 180 days 
of enactment of this Act, accounting for the cost of all 
activities associated with the full implementation of Next Gen, 
including transition costs, and to conduct semiannual briefings 
to the authorizing and Appropriations Committees.
    The agreement directs the Department to continue to provide 
to the Committees quarterly reports detailing its obligation 
plan by quarter for student aid administrative activities 
broken out by servicer, Next Gen contractor and activity and 
detailing performance metrics, total loan volume and number of 
accounts, broken out by servicer, Next Gen contractor and for 
each private collection agency.
    Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) 
Simplification and Data Linkages.--The agreement supports 
efforts to further simplify the FAFSA and verification process 
to reduce the burden on students and IHEs, including swift 
implementation of recent legislative changes to the sharing of 
information between the Department and Internal Revenue Service 
and ensuring all service members and veterans can identify 
their status when they apply for student aid separate from the 
dependency determination.
    Return of Title IV Funds.--The Department is encouraged to 
pursue efforts to simplify and streamline the return of title 
IV funds process for IHEs and students.
    Student Aid Enforcement.--The Department shall include 
information in its fiscal year 2021 Congressional Justification 
on staffing levels of the Student Aid Enforcement Unit and 
actions taken by the unit, including the number and type of 
actions opened, pending, and closed annually.
    Student Loan Cancellations and Discharges Reporting.--The 
Department should continue to bolster transparency through the 
Federal Student Aid Data Center by supplementing current 
reporting with, at a minimum, semiannual reports beginning no 
later than 90 days after enactment of this Act, on each of the 
Federal student loan cancellation and discharge programs. Each 
report should include the total number of unique borrowers who 
have applied for a program or have been identified under an 
applicable data match (``borrowers''), unique borrowers in each 
applicable status (received, pending, approved, and denied), 
total loan balance in each applicable status (received, 
pending, approved, and denied), median amount discharged for 
each program, and percentage of unique borrowers subject to any 
partial discharge. The Department should publish disaggregated 
information by State, as possible, and make such information 
available publicly on the Department's website.
    Total and Permanent Disability.--The agreement directs the 
Department to provide a report to the Committees within 180 
days of enactment of this Act on steps taken or planned to be 
taken to improve information provided to students who are 
eligible for total and permanent disability discharge of 
Federal student loans or service obligations, including 
strategies used to improve outreach to all eligible borrowers 
and increase the number of qualifying individuals receiving 
discharges.
    Veterans Affairs Data Matching.--The Secretary shall 
provide a report not later than 90 days after enactment of this 
Act to the Committees on the implementation of the data 
matching system with the Department of Veterans Affairs to 
facilitate the discharge of student loans for veterans with 
total and permanent disabilities. Such report should include 
information about the number of veterans identified through the 
matching program, the number of loans automatically discharged 
as the result of the matching program, the number of loans 
discharged overall, and a description of the barriers for 
veterans who may be eligible for a student loan discharge for 
total and permanent disability but who have not received one, 
and planned actions for eliminating such barriers for veterans.

                            Higher Education


Aid for Institutional Development

    Strengthening Institutions.--The Department is encouraged 
to support programs at Institutions of Higher Education (IHE) 
that offer training programs that lead to certificates or 
industry-recognized credentials in high-demand fields; provide 
educational experiences that are closely aligned to actual 
workforce needs; provide customizable and quality educational 
opportunities; and connect students to comprehensive 
educational offerings that provide students with other 
essential skills.

Postsecondary Programs for Students with Intellectual Disabilities

    The agreement includes $11,800,000 to carry out activities 
under title VII, part D, subparts 2 and 4 of the HEA. Funds 
will be used by the Department to hold a new competition to 
build on the important work that has been done to develop 
postsecondary opportunities for students with intellectual 
disabilities through model projects and the National 
Coordinating Center (NCC), and to expand the work of the NCC to 
conduct research to identify effective strategies used by 
postsecondary programs for students with intellectual 
disabilities that lead to positive employment and independent 
living outcomes.

Federal TRIO Programs

    The Department is directed to allocate any grant funding 
not needed for non-competitive continuation awards or for 
programs up for re-competition in fiscal year 2020 to provide 
inflationary increases for current grantees and to increase the 
number and size of new awards in the Student Support Services 
grant competition. The Department is further directed to 
include proposed funding levels for each of the TRIO programs 
in the operating plan required under section 516 of this Act. 
There is great concern and disappointment that the Department 
has yet to issue a notice inviting applications for new awards 
for TRIO Student Support Services grants. The Department is 
directed to publish such notice inviting applications for new 
awards for TRIO Student Support Services grants no later than 
December 30, 2019 and take steps necessary to award funding as 
early as possible before the beginning of the academic year.

Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR 
        UP)

    The agreement notes concerns over the competition schedule 
for GEAR UP State and partnership grants. The agreement directs 
the Department to uphold the long-standing guidance that States 
may only administer one active State grant at a time. The 
Secretary is directed to provide written guidance in the 
Federal Register notifying applicants that only States without 
an active State grant, or States that have an active State 
grant that is scheduled to end prior to October 1, 2020, will 
be eligible to receive a new State award funded in whole or in 
part by this appropriation. The agreement directs the 
Department to provide a briefing to the Committees within 90 
days of enactment of this Act on this program and any planned 
competitions for fiscal year 2020.

Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education

    The agreement includes $24,500,000 for FIPSE, to remain 
available through December 31, 2020, for the following 
activities.
    Career Pathways.--The agreement includes $10,000,000 for 
grants to expand and improve career pathways opportunities for 
students beginning in high school. These grants should support 
the creation of sustainable, evidence-based career exploration 
and guidance systems that promote multiple pathways to 
postsecondary and career success.
    Centers of Excellence for Veterans Student Success 
Program.--The agreement includes $7,000,000 for the activity 
described under the heading ``Fund for the Improvement of 
Postsecondary Education'' and as set out in the paragraphs 
associated with the Centers of Excellence for Veterans Student 
Success Program in House Report 116-62.
    Open Textbook Pilot.--The agreement includes $7,000,000 to 
continue the Open Textbook Pilot and fund a new grant 
competition in fiscal year 2020. The Department shall issue a 
notice inviting applications consistent with notice and comment 
procedures and allow for a 60-day application period. This 
funding should support a significant number of grant awards to 
IHEs as defined by 20 U.S.C. 1001, a group of IHEs, or State 
higher education agencies that lead the activities of (and 
serve as fiscal agent for) a consortium. Funding should be used 
to create new open textbooks and expand the use of open 
textbooks in courses that are part of a degree granting 
program, and particularly those with high enrollments. 
Allowable uses of funds should include professional development 
for faculty and staff, including relating to the search for and 
review of open textbooks; the creation or adaptation of open 
textbooks; development or improvement of tools and 
informational resources that support the use of open textbooks, 
including accessible instructional materials for students with 
disabilities; and research evaluating the efficacy of the use 
of open textbooks for achieving savings for students and the 
impact on instruction and student learning outcomes. The 
Secretary shall require that any open textbooks created with 
these funds shall be released to the public under a non-
exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, and irrevocable license to 
exercise any of the rights under copyright conditioned only on 
the requirement that attribution be given as directed by the 
copyright owner. Further, any tools, technologies, or other 
resources that are created, developed, or improved wholly or in 
part with these funds for use with any open textbook must be 
similarly licensed. Any eligible entity receiving a grant 
through the Open Textbooks Pilot, upon completion of the 
supported project, shall report to the Secretary regarding the 
effectiveness of the project in expanding the use of open 
textbooks and in achieving savings for students; the impact of 
the project on expanding the use of open textbooks at IHEs 
outside of the institution receiving the grant; open textbooks 
created or adapted under the grant, including instructions on 
where the public can access each open textbook; the impact of 
the project on instruction and student learning outcomes; and 
all project costs, including the value of any volunteer labor 
and institutional capital used for the project. The Secretary 
shall make such reports publicly available.
    National Center for Information and Technical Support for 
Postsecondary Students with Disabilities.--The agreement 
includes $500,000 for the operation of the National Center for 
Information and Technical Support for Postsecondary Students 
with Disabilities authorized under section 777(a) of the HEA.

               Historically Black College and University


                   Capital Financing Program Account

    The agreement includes $46,484,000 for the Historically 
Black College and University (HBCU) Capital Financing program 
account. Using updated economic assumptions from the Department 
of Education, the funding provided for private loan deferments 
more accurately reflects those needs and continues all current 
loan deferments. The agreement includes additional funding and 
new bill language for the deferment of outstanding loans for 
public HBCUs. Further, the agreement directs the Department to 
provide such funding based on the quality of applications 
received and to prorate funds across all eligible schools.

                 Institute of Education Sciences (IES)

    Assessment.--The agreement supports assessments for 
students in United States History and Civics. The National 
Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) is directed to continue 
administering assessments in these two areas, at least every 4 
years, in accordance with the current National Assessment of 
Educational Progress (NAEP) schedule. The agreement notes 
concern with recent changes to the proposed NAEP schedule, some 
of which differ from the schedule outlined in the fiscal year 
2020 budget request, which proposed a reduction in funding for 
assessments that is part of the explanation for the modified 
assessment schedule. The Department and NAGB are directed to 
provide a briefing to the Committees within 45 days of 
enactment of this Act on the proposed changes and estimated 
funding needed to maintain the schedule outlined in the fiscal 
year 2020 budget request.
    Second Chance Pell.--The agreement directs IES to conduct a 
rigorous evaluation of the Second Chance Pell Experiment as 
announced in the Federal Register (Volume 80, Number 148 on 
Monday, August 3, 2015) and work with the Department's Policy 
and Program Studies on this effort. The agreement directs IES 
to submit the evaluation to the Committees within 30 days of 
completing the evaluation. The agreement also directs the 
Department to report no later than 90 days after the enactment 
of this Act on the implementation of GAO's recommendation in 
its April 2019 report, ``Federal Student Aid: Actions Needed to 
Evaluate Pell Grant Pilot for Incarcerated Students'' (GAO-19-
130).

                        Departmental Management

    Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) Compliance with ESEA.--The 
Department shall provide a report to the committees of 
jurisdiction within 180 days of enactment of this Act on how it 
evaluates the BIE's compliance with ESEA.
    Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC).--The agreement is 
concerned with the proposed elimination of key data elements 
from the 2019-20 CRDC that could impede efforts to identify and 
address inequities in educational resources and outcomes. 
Further, the agreement is concerned that the Department did not 
first review or evaluate the 2017-18 CRDC collection before 
proposing the elimination of these elements. As the CRDC is 
used to monitor and enforce equal opportunity in education, the 
agreement is concerned that the Department's rationale for 
elimination focused on reducing regulatory burden while not 
including a comprehensive analysis of whether eliminating 
certain data elements would negatively impact the ability to 
understand or address civil rights issues in our nation's 
schools. The agreement directs the Department to provide a 
briefing to the appropriations and authorizing Committees 
within 90 days of enactment of this Act on the proposed 
changes, how the changes reflect civil rights enforcement 
needs, information on the comments received on the proposal, an 
evaluation of the 2017-18 CRDC, and any impact on the mission 
and purpose of the CRDC and the Office for Civil Rights.
    Competitions.--The agreement notes long-standing concern 
regarding the Department's failure to issue notices inviting 
applications for competitive grant competitions in a timely 
manner. Such delays often result in a significant number of 
programs awarding grants in the final weeks of the fiscal year. 
Moreover, these delays have occurred for enduring, authorized 
programs for which there is sufficient funding history to 
believe appropriations will continue. The Department is 
directed to brief the Committees no later than 60 days after 
enactment of this Act on steps it has taken or will take to 
issue notices earlier in fiscal year 2020 and subsequent years.
    Computer Science Education.--The agreement supports the 
Department's prioritization of computer science education in 
fiscal year 2019 grant competitions and supports this focus in 
fiscal year 2020.
    Department of Interior Schools.--The Departments of 
Education and Interior are commended for their efforts to 
improve the lives of American Indian students through a quality 
education. However, more should be done to improve the long-
documented issues facing Department of Interior schools. The 
Departments of Education and Interior are encouraged to 
continue to work together to improve the quality of education 
opportunities offered to Indian youth.
    Disaster Recovery.--Funding awarded under the Bipartisan 
Budget Act of 2018 (P.L. 115-123) is available for obligation 
through fiscal year 2022, in part to address potentially 
lengthy recovery efforts. As grantees have experienced both 
expected and unexpected challenges that have slowed the 
expenditure of funds, the agreement strongly encourages the 
Department to extend the time grantees awarded funds in 2018 
currently have to expend funds, as applicable, consistent with 
the terms of section 21208(b) of such Act.
    Disclosures of Foreign Gifts and Contracts.--The agreement 
notes that section 117 of the HEA requires IHEs to disclose 
certain gifts from or contracts with foreign entities and that 
the Department makes such information publicly available on its 
website. Such disclosures are critical to ensure adequate 
oversight and transparency. The agreement directs the 
Department to engage with IHEs to ensure requirements under 
section 117 are clear and to provide guidance to IHEs to ensure 
they are aware of their responsibilities. As the Department 
provides guidance on this issue or modifies reporting methods 
or requirements, IHEs should be given adequate time to ensure 
proper reporting. The Department should brief the Committees 
within 45 days of enactment of this Act on efforts to engage 
with the stakeholder community, efforts to provide greater 
guidance and clarity on reporting requirements, and any 
additional information on agency efforts to comply with such 
section.
    Diverse Geographical Distribution of Grants.--The 
Department is encouraged to continue efforts to ensure that 
competitive grants are distributed among eligible entities that 
serve geographically diverse areas, including urban, suburban, 
and rural areas. It is critical that support and solutions 
developed with Federal funding are relevant to and available in 
all areas consistent with authorizations of Federal programs.
    Evidence-Based Grant Making.--The Secretary should use 
demonstrated evidence of effectiveness as part of the selection 
criteria through its Education Department General 
Administrative Regulations, consistent with authorizations, for 
all competitive grant programs. Non-competitive formula grant 
funds have a range of evidence requirements and preferences 
which the Department is directed to support through 
enhancements to its technical assistance and support 
activities.
    Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking.--Faithful 
execution of the Foundations for Evidence-based Policymaking 
Act will enhance the evidence-building capacity of Federal 
agencies, strengthen privacy protections, improve secure access 
to data, and ultimately provide more and higher quality 
evidence to policymakers. The Department shall provide updates 
on its implementation of the law and plans for the coming year 
in its next and subsequent Congressional Justifications.
    GAO Report on Teacher Shortages.--The agreement requests 
GAO provide a report to the Committees on trends and factors 
contributing to school districts' challenges with teacher 
recruitment and retention. The report should include a review 
and analysis of challenges recruiting and retaining special 
education teachers, paraprofessionals, and teacher aides; the 
extent to which licensure requirements are waived or modified 
to address shortages; and geographic and demographic 
characteristics of districts facing the greatest challenges or 
shortages, including rural and urban areas. The report shall 
examine ways to improve the effectiveness of current Federal 
policy in preventing and responding to teacher shortages as 
well as make recommendations on potential Federal interventions 
to improve teacher recruitment and retention.
    Human Resources.--The agreement is concerned about the 
full-time equivalent employment differences between the 
Department's Congressional Justifications and actual on-board 
staffing reports. The agreement notes an increase in the number 
of separations and hiring challenges at the Department. The 
agreement requests an update in the fiscal year 2021 
Congressional Justification on the activities the Department 
has undertaken or will undertake to ensure adequate staffing 
levels are achieved for the Department to meet its obligations. 
The Committees request periodic updates on this effort.
    Seclusion and Restraint Data.--The agreement strongly urges 
the Assistant Secretary for the Office for Civil Rights to take 
immediate steps in the ongoing 2017-2018 CRDC to improve the 
accuracy of the data, to remind and clarify for all schools and 
school districts to only report zero incidents of seclusion and 
restraint when no incidents have occurred, to leave cells blank 
for missing or incomplete data, and to contact schools and 
school districts that already submitted data for the 2017-2018 
CRDC and verify the accuracy of the data. Finally, the 
agreement strongly urges the Assistant Secretary to monitor 
compliance with action plan requirements for missing data, and 
ensure plans are submitted and address all missing data. The 
agreement requests an update on these efforts in the fiscal 
year 2021 Congressional Justification.

                           General Provisions

    The agreement continues authority for pooled evaluation 
authority.
    The agreement modifies a provision regarding endowment 
income.
    The agreement continues authority for the National Advisory 
Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity.
    The agreement continues authority for account maintenance 
fees.
    The agreement modifies a provision rescinding unobligated 
discretionary balances previously appropriated for the Pell 
grant program.
    The agreement modifies a provision rescinding fiscal year 
2020 mandatory funding to offset the mandatory costs of 
increasing the discretionary Pell award.
    The agreement includes a new provision modifying the name 
of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers program.
    The agreement includes a new provision modifying existing 
authority relating to cohort default rates for a period of two 
years.
    The agreement includes a new provision related to the 
Department of Education Organization Act.
    The agreement modifies a provision related to loan 
forgiveness opportunities for borrowers.

                                TITLE IV


                            RELATED AGENCIES


 Committee for Purchase from People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled

    The agreement includes an additional $1,350,000 for the 
one-time costs associated with a move of the headquarters 
office.

         Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS)


                           OPERATING EXPENSES

    Innovation, Assistance, and Other Activities.--The 
agreement includes $9,600,000 for innovation, assistance, and 
other activities. The agreement includes $6,400,000 for the 
Volunteer Generation Fund, $2,100,000 for the September 11th 
National Day of Service and Remembrance and $1,100,000 for the 
Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service.
    Commission Investment Fund.--The agreement includes no less 
than $8,500,000.
    Fixed Amount Grants.--CNCS is encouraged to expand 
opportunities for AmeriCorps programs to utilize fixed amount 
grants, which could reduce unnecessary administrative burdens 
on current and potential AmeriCorps programs. Further, CNCS is 
encouraged to increase the current maximum cost per member 
service year of fixed amount grants to make it more comparable 
to cost reimbursement grant levels and allow new AmeriCorps 
programs to be eligible to apply for full-time fixed amount 
grants, while also ensuring that fixed amount grantees provide 
a comparable amount of matching funds and that there is 
sufficient oversight and accountability of fixed amount 
grantees.
    Professional Corps.--CNCS is directed to include a 
determination of need by the local community among the factors 
that a professional corps program may use to demonstrate an 
inadequate number of professionals in a community. Further, 
CNCS is strongly encouraged to increase the maximum amount of 
operating funds per member service year a professional corps 
program may request as part of their grant application. 
Finally, CNCS is directed to provide professional corps 
programs flexibility in justifying the need for operating funds 
to ensure that these programs are able to provide high-quality 
services in all communities.
    Transformation and Sustainability Plan.--There is concern 
with CNCS' transformation and sustainability plan (TSP), 
particularly related to moving from a State office to regional 
office structure. CNCS is directed to ensure that TSP does not 
create degradation in services, technical assistance, or 
support for local community service programs, particularly 
those operating in under-served and rural areas, and to provide 
periodic briefings to the Committees on steps taken to ensure 
that service is maintained. Further, the CNCS is directed to 
provide a report within 30 days of enactment of this Act to the 
Committees. Such report should contain information on the 
metrics used and factors considered in determining the new 
regions and the location of regional offices; a complete 
analysis of all costs and savings associated with the 
transition to regional offices, including any increased travel 
or training costs; a description of other field structures 
considered; and a detailed response to each of the risk factors 
identified by the OIG. Finally, CNCS is encouraged to evaluate 
and consider adding additional regional offices as appropriate 
if it is determined that offices would enhance support for 
local community service programs.

               Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB)

    The bill removes unnecessary language related to the 
Television Future Fund as no such fund exists. All operation of 
the Television Future Fund ceased after a 2004 GAO report 
titled ``Issues Related to Federal Funding for Public 
Television by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting'' (GAO-
04-284) determined activities were done in an unauthorized 
manner. The agreement expects CPB to fully comply with all 
statutory requirements for the allocation and distribution of 
appropriated funds.

                Institute of Museum and Library Services

    Within the total for the Institute of Museum and Library 
Services, the agreement includes funds for the following 
activities:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

        Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC)

    Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT).--Within the 
amount provided, the agreement provides $300,000 for MACPAC to 
examine, to the extent data are available, the benefits of NEMT 
from State Medicaid programs on Medicaid beneficiaries, 
including beneficiaries with chronic diseases including end 
stage renal disease (ESRD), substance abuse disorders, pregnant 
mothers, and patients living in remote, rural areas, and to 
examine the benefits of improving local coordination of NEMT 
with public transportation and other Federally-assisted 
transportation services. The agreement directs HHS to take no 
regulatory action on availability of NEMT service until the 
study is completed.

                 National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)

    The agreement notes concern regarding NLRB personnel and 
obligation practices. Such practices have contributed to 
significant underspending on personnel costs. As a result of 
these practices, NLRB has had higher than historical funding 
lapses for the past two fiscal years. The October 2019 
Inspector General ``Top Management and Performance Challenges'' 
memorandum included in NLRB fiscal year 2019 Performance and 
Accountability Report identifies NLRB's current methodology for 
determining the workforce capacity needed to process cases as a 
key challenge to the Board's ability to ensure the quality of 
its investigative work product and maintain a highly motivated 
workforce.
    The agreement directs NLRB to address this challenge by 
posting position openings to restore critical field staff 
capacity and to more aggressively fill vacancies in fiscal year 
2020, including the remaining open regional director positions. 
To ensure NLRB makes progress toward addressing this issue, the 
agreement directs the Board to expand the number of regional 
full-time equivalent staff beyond the amount on-board at the 
end of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019. Within 90 days 
of enactment of this Act, NLRB is directed to brief the 
Committees on its plans for addressing these critical hiring 
challenges.
    Further, NLRB is directed to submit a report to the 
Committees within 90 days of enactment of this Act detailing 
the resources dedicated to regional offices. Such report should 
include actual and planned data, as applicable, for fiscal 
years 2011 through 2021: (1) the number of employees stationed 
in each regional office and (2) administrative expenses by 
object class for each regional office. In addition, the 
agreement directs the Board to provide monthly staffing reports 
to the Committees. Such staffing reports should include the 
total number of employees in each position for each regional 
office, attrition for each office, new hires for each office, 
and any information on plans to incentivize or encourage 
employee separations.

                       Railroad Retirement Board


                      LIMITATION ON ADMINISTRATION

    The agreement includes $10,000,000 for the implementation 
of information technology systems modernization efforts.
    GAO Review.--The agreement requests GAO conduct a 
management review of the Railroad Retirement Board, including, 
financial management practices, regional office structure and 
workforce planning needs, oversight of programs, and any other 
matters GAO considers relevant.

                  Social Security Administration (SSA)


                 LIMITATION ON ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

    The agreement includes an increase of $100,000,000 for 
SSA's base administrative expenses for additional hires and 
resources to improve public service at SSA field offices and 
direct service operations.
    Continuing Disability Reviews.--The agreement directs SSA 
to include in its next continuing disability review (CDR) 
report to Congress an evaluation of its CDR prioritization 
models and a cost-benefit analysis of how it uses estimated 
savings in determining which beneficiaries receive a full-
medical CDR. Additionally, the agreement requests in the fiscal 
year 2021 Congressional Justification, the process by which SSA 
intends to pace its CDR workload to properly manage Limitation 
on Administrative Expenses funding.
    Disability Case Processing System (DCPS).--SSA is 
encouraged to engage with States to explore all possible 
options for modernization of the case processing system, to 
align with the needs of each State, so long as such options 
have similar or better functionality as DCPS, similar or lower 
costs to DCPS, and are consistent with Federal procurement and 
security standards. SSA should continue to provide regular 
updates on the effort to upgrade DCPS, including the cost and 
anticipated timeline of the project, and efforts by SSA to 
engage stakeholders, including any barriers to implementation.
    Disability Hearings Backlog.--The agreement encourages SSA 
to include comprehensive information in its existing reports to 
Congress on the specific policies SSA has implemented, or has 
considered, to streamline the disability determination and 
adjudication process. When considering or implementing changes, 
SSA should ensure due process, and that applicants have a full 
and adequate opportunity to present their claims.
    Field Office Closures.--While SSA's Inspector General 
reviews decisions to close field offices, the Commissioner is 
strongly encouraged to take every action possible to maintain 
operations at the offices under review. SSA is expected to 
support front line operations. As part of the fiscal year 2021 
Congressional Justification, SSA should include a plan to 
identify opportunities for improved field office operations. 
Finally, SSA is strongly encouraged to ensure its policies and 
procedures for closing field offices include at least 120 days 
advance notice to the public, SSA employees, Congress, and 
other stakeholders. Such notice should include a rationale for 
the proposed closure and an evaluation of the effects on the 
public and SSA operations.
    Mail and Printing Systems.--SSA is encouraged to consider 
and evaluate modernization of its mail and printing systems and 
contracts that could result in budgetary savings while 
improving fraud prevention. The agreement requests a briefing 
for the Committees within 180 days of enactment of this Act on 
current mailing and printing systems and contracts, including 
systems or contracts relating to Social Security Cards, and any 
ongoing efforts to modernize or otherwise improve such systems.
    Medical Vocational Guidelines.--The agreement directs SSA 
to provide a report to the Committees within 90 days of 
enactment of this Act on its plan and timetable for updating 
and modernizing medical vocational guidelines and to engage 
appropriate Committees of jurisdiction prior to making any 
changes to such guidelines.
    Telework.--SSA is urged to develop a telework plan for 
Operations employees as quickly as practicable and to brief the 
Committees on the status of efforts to reinstate telework 
within 60 days of enactment of this Act.
    Video Hearings.--The agreement reiterates the language 
included under this heading in House Report 116-62, and directs 
SSA to provide an update in the fiscal year 2021 Congressional 
Justification detailing the extent to which SSA meets best 
practices outlined by the Administrative Conference of the 
U.S., and the extent to which SSA video hearings, policies, and 
practices are accessible to individuals with disabilities.
    Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA) and 
Protection and Advocacy for Beneficiaries of Social Security 
(PABSS).--The agreement includes $23,000,000 for WIPA and 
$7,000,000 for PABSS.

                                TITLE V


                           General Provisions

non-competitive contracts, grants and cooperative agreements.
    The agreement modifies a provision related to Performance 
Partnerships.
    The agreement includes a new provision related to grant 
notifications.
    The agreement includes a new provision related to questions 
for the record.
    The agreement includes a provision rescinding various 
unobligated balances.

    [Clerk's note.--Reproduced below is the material relating 
to division B contained in the Explanatory Statement regarding 
H.R. 1865, the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2020.\1\]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ This Explanatory Statement was submitted for printing in the 
Congressional Record on
December 17, 2019 by Mrs. Lowey of New York, Chairwoman of the House 
Committee on Appropriations. The Statement appears on page H11162 of 
Book III.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

       DIVISION B--AGRICULTURE, RURAL DEVELOPMENT, FOOD AND DRUG 
     ADMINISTRATION, AND RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2020


                        CONGRESSIONAL DIRECTIVES

    The statement is silent on provisions that were in both the 
House Report (H. Rpt. 116-107) and Senate Report (S. Rpt. 116-
110) that remain unchanged by this agreement, except as noted 
in this statement.
    The House and Senate report language that is not changed by 
the statement is approved and indicates congressional 
intentions. The 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 `the 
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 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, 2020, accompanying Committee reports, 
explanatory statements, 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 2020, 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 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 
February 1, 2020. The agreement also directs the Food and Drug 
Administration (FDA), the Commodity Futures Trading Commission 
(CFTC), and the Farm Credit Administration (FCA) to provide an 
organizational chart of each agency respectively to the 
division and subdivision level, as appropriate, by February 1, 
2020.
    Further, USDA, FDA, and CFTC should be mindful of 
Congressional authority to determine and set final funding 
levels for fiscal year 2021. Therefore, the agencies should not 
presuppose program funding outcomes and prematurely initiate 
action to redirect staffing prior to knowing final outcomes on 
fiscal year 2021 program funding. The 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.

                                TITLE I


                         AGRICULTURAL PROGRAMS


                   Processing, Research and Marketing


                        Office Of The Secretary


                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

    The agreement provides $46,139,000 for the Office of the 
Secretary.
    The agreement is concerned with the number of staff 
vacancies within USDA. While funding levels continue to 
increase for many agencies, staffing levels continue to 
decline. Within 180 days after enactment, the Secretary shall 
provide detailed staffing levels for all research agencies, the 
Farm Service Agency, all marketing agencies, Rural Development, 
the Food and Nutrition Service, and the Foreign Agricultural 
Service. The report shall include all vacancies that have 
remained unfilled for more than six months and detailed plans 
to fill those vacancies. The report shall also include for each 
agency, the number of fulltime equivalent (FTE) staff utilized 
and the number of vacancies for fiscal years 2015 through 2019.
    The agreement notes the ongoing contract negotiations 
between West Coast grain terminal operators and the 
International Longshore and Warehouse Union and recognizes the 
importance of reaching an agreement that works for both 
parties. A failure to reach an agreement could result in an 
interruption in grain terminal service that would negatively 
impact the nation's grain exports. The agreement urges all 
parties to continue negotiating in good faith to ensure an 
equitable outcome for both grain terminal operators and their 
workers is expeditiously reached.
    The agreement directs the Secretary to submit a report that 
describes the economic and environmental impacts of importing 
orchids in growing media. The report shall include: a 
description of the economic impact of importing orchids in 
growing media on a state-by-state basis, with data collected 
from local growers; any incidents of pests detected on orchids 
imported with growing media; and an analysis with respect to 
additional resources that are necessary to prevent and mitigate 
the introduction of pests resulting from importing orchids in 
growing media.
    The agreement directs the Secretary to preserve the term 
``climate change'' in any publication where scientifically 
appropriate.
    In addition to updates provided to the Committees, the 
Department is directed to include in its fiscal year 2021 
Congressional Justification, as a single exhibit, a table 
listing all deliverables, with a column for due dates if 
applicable.
    The Department is reminded 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 agreement recognizes the important role of the Forest 
Service Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers and directs the 
Secretary to continue the program as currently structured.
    The Department is directed to treat crop losses due to 
freeze as losses resulting from snowstorms and therefore 
eligible for WHIP+ payments.
    The following table reflects the agreement:

    The agreement recognizes the Farm and Production 
Conservation (FPAC) Business Center was created with the goal 
of consolidating administrative functions. The agreement 
directs the Secretary to report to the Committees, within 60 
days of enactment, on what efficiencies have been gained, by 
which metrics the Business Center is being measured, how the 
Business Center will accelerate hiring going forward, and any 
existing plans for additional reorganizations of staff into the

for IT improvements.
    The agreement acknowledges the Department met the FSA 
Workload Study as directed by House Report 114-205 through the 
Optimally Productive Office (OPO) Study. The OPO provides 
FPAC's frontline leaders with a set of tools that enables them 
to better manage field capacity by focusing on both level and 
distribution of staff as well as location of offices by using 
data-driven methods. At this time, as the Committees continue 
to analyze the results of the OPO Study, the agreement 
continues language preventing the closure of FSA county 
offices.

for losses due to disease, or other factors as determined by 
the Secretary. The agreement directs FSA within 180 days of 
enactment to amend the existing regulations under 7 C.F.R. 1416 
to ensure producers of farm-raised fish intended for human 
consumption are eligible to receive payments for death losses 
due to disease or avian predation.
    The agreement directs FSA to work with ranchers to tailor 
the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) to address unique 
circumstances, such as panther and bald eagle depredation, 
which are currently preventing producers from receiving 
compensation for losses.

    The agreement provides $6,000,000,000 for the Special 
Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and

    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 agreement notes, however, that while all 
revised packages now allow some fish, the amounts remain low 
compared to the recommendations of other authoritative health 
agencies. The agreement strongly encourages 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 agreement also strongly 
encourages 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.
