  EXPLANATORY STATEMENT SUBMITTED BY MR. OBEY, CHAIRMAN OF THE HOUSE 
       COMMITTEE ON APPROPRIATIONS, REGARDING H.R. 1105, OMNIBUS 
                        APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2009

       Following is an explanation of the Omnibus Appropriations 
     Act, 2009, including disclosure of congressional earmarks and 
     congressionally directed spending items as defined in clause 
     9 of rule XXI of the Rules of the House of Representatives 
     and rule XLIV of the Standing Rules of the Senate.
       Section 4 of the Act specifies that this explanatory 
     statement shall have the same effect with respect to the 
     allocation of funds and implementation of this legislation as 
     if it were a joint explanatory statement of a committee of 
     conference.
       The Omnibus Appropriations Act includes fiscal year 2009 
     appropriations encompassing 9 regular annual appropriations 
     bills, each in a separate division, plus a 10th division 
     including further provisions relating to the Department of 
     Homeland Security and other agencies. The divisions contained 
     in the Act are as follows:
        Division A--Agriculture, Rural Development, Food 
     and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations 
     Act, 2009;
        Division B--Commerce, Justice, Science, and 
     Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2009;
        Division C--Energy and Water Development and 
     Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2009;
        Division D--Financial Services and General 
     Government Appropriations Act, 2009;
        Division E--Department of the Interior, 
     Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2009;

     2009;
        Division H--Department of State, Foreign 
     Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2009;
        Division I--Transportation, Housing and Urban 
     Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2009; 
     and
        Division J--Further Provisions Relating to the 
     Department of Homeland Security and Other Matters.
       Section 3 states that, unless expressly provided otherwise, 
     any reference to ``this Act'' contained in any division shall 
     be treated as referring only to the provisions of that 
     division.

                               DIVISION A

                     TITLE I--AGRICULTURAL PROGRAMS

                 Production, Processing, and Marketing

                        Office of the Secretary

       The bill provides $5,174,000 for the Office of the 
     Secretary.
       The Department is directed to provide within 60 days after 
     the date of enactment of this Act all reports and studies 
     requested in this statement to the Committees on 
     Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate 
     (hereafter referred to as ``the Committees'') in both an 
     electronic and hard copy format, unless another date is 
     specified for a particular report.
       The Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (hereafter 
     referred to as ``the 2008 farm bill'') authorized many new 
     programs, provided mandatory funding for a select number of 
     them, and reauthorized existing programs throughout the 
     Department of Agriculture. The Department is directed to 
     submit a report detailing the Department's implementation 
     plan for the 2008 farm bill. The report should include 
     timeframes for developing new regulations and estimated dates 
     the Department expects to finalize the regulations and 
     implement the new or revised programs. The Department is also 
     directed to provide to the Committees all reports requested 
     in the 2008 farm bill.
       There is concern that agencies are being required, after 
     appropriations have been enacted for other purposes, to 
     support E-Gov and PART studies. This diminishes, delays, or 
     eliminates the implementation of the activities for which 
     funds were provided. Thirty days prior to any centrally 
     determined charges being applied to any USDA agency that are 
     different from those amounts displayed in the budget 
     justification materials, the Department must submit to the 
     Committees a detailed explanation of the amounts assessed and 
     the method for determining those amounts.
       There continues to be strong support in Congress for 
     programs that provide emergency food assistance throughout 
     the world and that work to achieve sustainable food security. 
     Among those programs is the Borlaug Dialogue (and its 
     associated functions), which provides a forum for world 
     leadership related to international food assistance. The 
     Secretary is encouraged to support this activity and to 
     ensure that the Department maintains a strong role in the 
     fight against world hunger.

     food systems and commerce that will account for the effects 
     of local food systems on economic activity, nutrition, and 
     energy and the environment. This study will consider 
     government policies to support local food markets and reduce 
     barriers to growth of that sector. ERS is encouraged to work 
     in collaboration with the Agricultural Marketing Service, 
     Rural Business-Cooperative Service, Food and Nutrition 
     Service, and other appropriate federal agencies. ERS is also

       The bill provides $1,140,406,000 for the Agricultural 
     Research Service (ARS), Salaries and Expenses.
       The rapid spread of the wheat stem rust known as Ug99, from 
     East Africa to the Arabian Peninsula and most recently to the 
     Middle East, is of great concern. Ug99 is a very virulent 
     strain of stem rust and could threaten 80 percent of the 
     world's wheat supply if resistant varieties of wheat are not 
     developed. The bill provides an increase of $1,500,000 for 
     work to develop Ug99 resistant wheat varieties.
       The Committees are concerned by the growing problem of 
     viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS). The bill provides an 
     increase of $1,000,000 for monitoring, diagnosis, 
     epidemiology, treatment and prevention of VHS. ARS is 
     encouraged to work with research institutions in the Great 
     Lakes region to ascertain the extent to which VHS is present 
     in U.S. waters, develop an effective vaccine, and establish 
     the genetic basis for resistance to VHS in fish.
       The bill provides increases of $254,000 each for Human 
     Nutrition Research, Boston, MA; Chronic diseases of children, 
     Houston, TX; West Tennessee Mississippi River Cropping 
     Systems Unit, Jackson, TN; ARS Southwest Watershed Research 
     Center, Tucson, AZ; and the Northwest Center for Small 
     Fruits, Corvallis, OR.
       The bill provides an increase of $1,350,000 for research on 
     food allergies and an increase of $800,000 for research on 
     colony collapse disorder, to be spent as the agency 
     determines appropriate.
       The ARS Cotton Quality Research Unit in Clemson, South 
     Carolina, is expected to identify opportunities for increased 
     collaboration with the University of Georgia Tifton MicroGin 
     that would enhance the integration of research on fiber 
     quality from harvest to gin to textile mill and ARS is 
     requested to report to the Committees on its findings and 
     needs assessments.
       None of the funds appropriated to ARS for the Advanced 
     Animal Vaccine Project at the Plum Island Animal Disease 
     Center may be directed for any other use by the Department of 
     Homeland Security.
       The fiscal year 2009 budget request proposed to relocate 
     the Arthropod-Borne Animal Diseases Research Laboratory 
     (ABADRL) from its current location in Laramie, Wyoming. 
     Before deciding whether it is appropriate to relocate the 
     lab, ARS is directed to provide a report to the Committees 
     describing the current status of the laboratory's facilities 
     and research. Additionally, the agency shall assess no fewer 
     than two locations that could serve as the new location of 
     ABADRL. When selecting the locations to assess, ARS should 
     consider the facilities, capacity, expertise, and synergies 
     relevant to fulfilling and expediting the ABADRL mission that 
     are offered by each potential location. The report should 
     include a comparative cost analysis.
       Funds made available for the Center for Agroforestry should 
     be used to continue research into all five temperate-zone 
     agroforestry practices applicable in Midwestern states.
       The National Animal Disease Center (NADC) is an important 
     component in the nation's animal disease research 
     infrastructure, but it is in need of office, laboratory, and 
     information technology equipment and designated animal space. 
     The Department is encouraged to begin providing these items 
     out of the funds made available in this bill. If they are 
     not, a request for the remaining funds should be submitted by 
     the Department for fiscal year 2010.
       ARS is directed to submit a report to the Committees by May 
     1, 2009, that analyzes the feasibility, requirements, and 
     cost for conducting water quality and quantity research at 
     Arkansas State University.
       The need to investigate diet-related health problems, 
     including obesity and its associated illnesses, is 
     recognized. With the continued support in this bill for the 
     Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center, the Center is 
     directed to continue development of programs to address 
     obesity and diet-related health issues in rural and Native 
     American communities, the study of minerals and other 
     nutrients in widely consumed foods contributing to healthy 
     diets, and the role of nutrition in the prevention of chronic 
     diseases.
       The Metabolic Diet Unit at the Human Nutrition Research 
     Center on Aging at Tufts University is in need of upgrades 
     and ARS is encouraged to initiate such improvements from 
     within available funds.

       Funds provided for APHIS in this bill accept all transfers 
     of funds proposed in the budget request. These transfers 
     include the following: $4,634,000 from ``Foreign Animal 
     Disease/FMD'' and $10,936,000 from ``Trade Issues Resolution 
     and Management'' into ``Overseas Technical and Trade 
     Operations''; $1,481,000 from ``Trade Issues Resolution and 
     Management'' into ``Import/Export''; $51,047,000 from 
     ``Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza'' and $15,610,000 from 
     ``Low Pathogen Avian Influenza'' into ``Avian Influenza''; 
     $1,938,000 from ``Biosecurity'' and $1,977,000 from 
     ``Biosurveillance'' into ``Emergency Management Systems''; 
     and $3,722,000 from ``Emergency Management Systems'' into 
     ``National Veterinary Stockpile''.
       APHIS is drafting a final rule that would allow the agency 
     to approve, after pest risk analysis, certain new fruits and 
     vegetables for interstate movement, subject to meeting one or 
     any combination of five specific designated measures. APHIS 
     is encouraged to consider allowing shipment of untreated 
     fruits and vegetables grown in Hawaii to cold-weather states 
     during winter months if Hawaii has specific measures in place 
     to meet the standards set in the final rule and can 
     reasonably ensure that potential transshipment of such 
     produce will not jeopardize the phytosanitary standards of 
     warm weather states.
       The bill includes $9,907,000 for Cattle Fever Ticks, 
     including an increase of $2,074,000 to initiate the five-year 
     strategic plan to assist in moving the Cattle Fever Tick 
     quarantine zone south of the U.S. border.
       The bill includes $62,320,000 for Fruit Fly Exclusion and 
     Detection, including an increase of $1,000,000 to enhance the 
     Guatemala-Mexico Medfly barrier.
       The bill includes $129,180,000 for Animal Health Monitoring 
     and Surveillance, including $14,500,000, an increase of 
     $4,713,000, for the National Animal Identification System 
     (NAIS). Given this investment, coupled with the almost 
     $128,000,000 that Congress has already provided for NAIS, 
     APHIS is expected to make demonstrable progress with 
     effectively implementing the animal identification system. 
     Accordingly, APHIS is directed to meet the following species 
     traceability objectives that are derived from the agency's 
     final 2008 animal disease traceability business plan:
       --Cattle: By March 1, 2009, identify 30 percent of the 
     nation's cattle population to premises of origin within 48 
     hours of a disease event.
       --Goats: By October 1, 2009, identify 90 percent of goat 
     breeding herds to their birth premises within 48 hours of a 
     disease event.
       --Poultry: By July 1, 2009, achieve 98 percent traceability 
     in the commercial poultry industry through the identification 
     of commercial production units in the required radius within 
     48 hours of a disease event.
       --Sheep: By October 1, 2009, identify 90 percent of sheep 
     breeding flock to their birth premises within 48 hours of a 
     disease event.
       --Swine: By February 1, 2009, achieve 80 percent 
     traceability in the commercial swine industries through the 
     identification of commercial production units in the required 
     radius within 48 hours of a disease event.
       In addition, APHIS is directed to meet the following 
     program administration milestones that are similarly derived 
     from the final 2008 animal disease traceability business 
     plan:
       --By February 1, 2009: Publish proposed rulemaking to 
     consider establishing the seven-character PIN as the national 
     location identifier standard and establish the ``840'' Animal 
     Identification Number as the single version for the numbering 
     system.
       --By February 1, 2009: Incorporate the NAIS-compliant 
     premises identification number format into existing Federal 
     disease program activities.
       --By May 1, 2009: Publish proposed rulemaking to consider 
     using a premises identification number, in the NAIS-compliant 
     format, for import/export facilities, the destination of 
     imported livestock and the location of exported animals prior 
     to the assembly.
       There is concern that APHIS removed a key outcome milestone 
     from its final animal disease traceability business plan that 
     assessed the agency's progress on integrating tracking 
     databases maintained by States and private organizations. 
     APHIS is directed to submit a report to the Committees that 
     explains why the agency dropped this important milestone from 
     its final business plan. APHIS is further directed to provide 
     an update on its current progress with fully integrating the 
     Animal Trace Processing System with non-Federal tracking 
     databases.
       APHIS is directed to submit a report to the Committees 
     within one week after each of the milestone dates outlining 
     the status of each species traceability objective and program 
     administration milestone and the reason the deadline was not 
     met.
       The bill includes $13,694,000 for Animal and Plant Health 
     Regulatory Enforcement, including an increase of $1,111,000 
     to hire and train seven new investigators to address 
     increased violations at major ports of entry referred by U.S. 
     Customs and Border Protection.
       The bill includes $4,528,000 for viral hemorrhagic 
     septicemia (VHS) control in Great Lakes States. APHIS is 
     strongly encouraged to prioritize limited VHS resources, 
     including research, to regions where the agency has confirmed 
     cases.
       The bill includes $133,677,000 for Emerging Plant Pests. 
     Included in this amount is $35,389,000 for citrus health; 
     $19,918,000 for Asian long-horned beetle; $22,948,000 for 
     glassy-winged sharpshooter; $5,305,000 for sudden oak death; 
     $2,136,000 for Karnal bunt; $34,625,000 for emerald ash 
     borer; $8,294,000 for potato cyst nematode; $1,001,000 for 
     light brown apple moth; $1,500,000 for Sirex woodwasp; 
     $2,092,000 for miscellaneous pests; and $469,000 for varroa 
     mite suppression.
       APHIS is directed to work with the City of Chicago to 
     manage the infestation of emerald ash borer and provide 
     appropriate resources.
       APHIS is encouraged to use the funding provided for sudden 
     oak death to address immediate needs in the recognized 
     containment and control areas, to promote the research, 
     development, and testing of new systems of nursery pest and 
     disease management, and for programs of inspection and 
     regulation.
       This bill includes $1,001,000 for the light brown apple 
     moth (LBAM) program. In fiscal years 2007 and 2008, 
     approximately $90,000,000 in Commodity Credit Corporation 
     (CCC) funds and $993,000 in appropriated funds had been made 
     available for LBAM. Of this amount, $43,800,000 in CCC 
     funding, as well as the $993,000 in appropriated funding, 
     remain available in fiscal year 2009 to continue APHIS's 
     efforts. The Secretary is encouraged to utilize all funds 
     necessary from CCC to carry out the recommendation of the 
     USDA science advisory panel to eradicate LBAM in California.
       The bill includes $5,552,000 for the grasshopper program. 
     APHIS may use funds provided for Mormon cricket activities in 
     Utah for eradication and control of black grass bug in Utah.
       A portion of the funding provided for the oral rabies 
     vaccination funding should be made available for activities 
     in the Appalachian region.
       Due to a new occurrence of bovine tuberculosis in New 
     Mexico, the Secretary is encouraged to use authorities and 
     resources of the Department to provide testing, monitoring, 
     surveillance, and other services as needed toward the control 
     and eradication of this disease, and for the prompt 
     restoration of split-state status for New Mexico.
       APHIS is expected to make the fiscal year 2009 funding for 
     beaver control in Mississippi available to all counties in 
     the state.
       Sericea lespedeza is an important field crop in the 
     southeastern United States. Sericea lespedeza also poses 
     environmental challenges to ecosystems in tall grass prairie 
     lands in the Great Plains region. APHIS is encouraged to 
     collaborate with conservation programs in the Great Plains 
     region where sericea lespedeza is an invasive species to find 
     economically and ecologically appropriate approaches.
       The bill includes $12,877,000 for Biotechnology Regulatory 
     Services, including an increase of $1,000,000 for the 
     Biotechnology Quality Management System.
       APHIS is currently evaluating a theobromine and caffeine 
     mixture as a possible tool for predation management. APHIS is 
     encouraged to continue evaluating this method, conduct field 
     studies, and take the appropriate steps to register these 
     compounds with the Environmental Protection Agency.
       The bill includes $5,725,000 for Physical/Operational 
     Security, including an increase of $1,564,000 to increase 
     security at critical facilities.
       The following is a list of Congressionally-designated

                        BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES

       The bill provides $4,712,000 for Animal and Plant Health 
     Inspection Service, Buildings and Facilities.

                     Agricultural Marketing Service


                           MARKETING SERVICES

       The bill provides $86,711,000 for the Agricultural 
     Marketing Service (AMS), Marketing Services.
       The bill provides an increase of $9,600,000 to the agency's 
     Marketing Services program in order to implement and enforce 
     labeling requirements for all covered commodities under the 
     country of origin labeling (COOL) law.
       After the release of the interim final rule for COOL in 
     September 2008, concerns were raised about USDA's 
     interpretation of congressional intent regarding the labeling 
     of packaged meat of domestic and foreign origin. As USDA 
     publishes a final rule and begins enforcement in April 2009, 
     the Department is directed to effectively enforce the food 
     labeling law.
       The bill includes $3,867,000 for the National Organic 
     Program. USDA is implementing draft revisions to the National 
     Organic Program resulting from the American National 
     Standards Institute 2004 audit and USDA Office of Inspector 
     General 2005 audit. AMS is directed to report to the 
     Committees on the status of these revisions. It is 
     appreciated that the Department has moved forward with the 
     long-overdue proposed rule on access to pasture, and the 
     Department is strongly encouraged to thoroughly review public 
     comments on the subject.
       The bill provides $4,766,000 to continue the 
     Microbiological Data Program (MDP). In its 2009 budget 
     request, the Administration criticized MDP for not providing 
     epidemiologically valuable data to support risk assessments 
     because the survey was ``blinded'' and did not collect 
     necessary information. However, AMS's January 2008 report to 
     the Committees stated that if the program could begin 
     collecting specific information to trace the origin of 
     samples, the resulting survey data would be more useful to 
     the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease 
     Control and Prevention. The agency's letter also noted that 
     recent food borne illness outbreaks demonstrate that a lack 
     of information undermines consumer confidence and causes 
     considerable economic impact to the agricultural industry. In 
     order to provide more valuable information and improve the 
     program's public health effectiveness, AMS is directed to 
     begin collecting origin of sample data.
       AMS is encouraged to provide appropriate technical and 
     financial assistance to the Windy City Harvest Initiative and 
     to the Iowa Buy Fresh/Buy Local Program.

     Markets, Income, and Supply.
       In addition, the bill provides $10,000,000 for the Web-
     based Supply Chain Management system.


                   PAYMENTS TO STATES AND POSSESSIONS

       The bill provides $1,334,000 for Payments to States and 
     Possessions.

        Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The bill provides $40,342,000 for the Grain Inspection, 
     Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA), Salaries and 
     Expenses.
       The bill provides an increase of $1,160,000 for the Packers 
     and Stockyards program to support GIPSA's reorganization 
     effort and to strengthen the agency's enforcement activities. 
     GIPSA is directed to use the additional resources to enhance 
     its compliance reviews and investigations capabilities, as 
     well as to support an increase in the agency's auditing of 
     the largest meat packers.
       GIPSA must submit a report that provides details for the 
     how the agency will deploy its resources for Packers and 
     Stockyards Act enforcement. The report should include a 
     description of the goals for addressing violations of the Act 
     and packer audits, as well as key measures that the agency 
     will use to track whether the additional funding is providing 
     a measurable improvement in performance.


        LIMITATION ON INSPECTION AND WEIGHING SERVICES EXPENSES

       The bill includes a limitation of $42,463,000 for 
     Limitation on Inspection and Weighing Services Expenses.

             Office of the Under Secretary for Food Safety

       The bill provides $613,000 for the Office of the Under 
     Secretary for Food Safety.

                   Food Safety and Inspection Service

       The bill provides $971,566,000 for the Food Safety and 
     Inspection Service (FSIS).
       The bill provides the full increase requested in the budget 
     and the full estimated costs for fiscal year 2009 for 
     implementation of the new interstate shipment and catfish 
     inspection provisions in sections 11015 and 11016, 
     respectively, of the 2008 farm bill. In addition, the bill 
     provides an increase of $2,000,000 for strengthened 
     enforcement of the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act.
       The Department is commended for the announcement that it 
     intends to move forward with closing the loophole in the 
     current rule governing non-ambulatory cattle and is strongly 
     urged to expedite the rules process and close this loophole 
     immediately.
       The Department is currently reviewing several proposals to 
     increase maximum line speeds at chicken slaughter facilities. 
     FSIS is directed to make any analysis conducted by the agency 
     on increasing maximum line speeds, and the effects such 
     changes might have on food and employee safety, available to 
     the Committees within 30 days.
       There remain very serious concerns about contaminated foods 
     from China and therefore the bill retains language 
     prohibiting FSIS from using funds to move forward with rules 
     that would allow for the importation of poultry products from 
     China into the U.S. It is noted that China has enacted 
     revisions to its food safety laws. USDA is urged to submit a 
     report to the Committees on the implications of those changes 
     on the safety of imported poultry products from China within 
     one year. The Department is also directed to submit a plan of 
     action to the Committees to guarantee the safety of poultry 
     products from China. Such plan should include the systematic 
     audit of inspection systems, and audits of all poultry and 
     slaughter facilities that China would certify to export to 
     the U.S. The plan also should include the systematic audit of 
     laboratories and other control operations, expanded port-of-
     entry inspection, and creation of an information sharing 
     program with other major countries importing poultry products 
     from China that have conducted audits and plant inspections 
     among other actions. This plan should be made public on the 
     Food Safety and Inspection Service web site upon its 
     completion.

                                TITLE II

                         CONSERVATION PROGRAMS

  Office of the Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment

       The bill provides $758,000 for the Office of the Under 
     Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment.

                 Natural Resources Conservation Service


                        CONSERVATION OPERATIONS

       The bill provides $853,400,000 for Conservation Operations.
       There is significant concern in the wake of the Natural 
     Resources Conservation Service's (NRCS) first stand-alone 
     financial audit. The November 2008 audit presented a 
     ``disclaimer of opinion'' on NRCS's consolidated financial 
     statements for fiscal year 2008, which means that NRCS was 
     not able to provide the necessary information that the 
     auditors needed to be able to express an opinion about the 
     state of the agency's accounts. In the spectrum of possible 
     findings, a disclaimer of opinion is potentially the weakest 
     outcome because an agency has been found to be unable to 
     adequately account for its financial transactions and program 
     activities. The auditors uncovered five material weaknesses 
     and several other deficiencies in the agency's financial 
     management controls. This result, coupled with hundreds of 
     millions of dollars in funds for contracts and conservation 
     projects that the agency has had to cancel over the past two 
     fiscal years, raises significant questions about not only 
     NRCS's financial management systems, but also its program 
     management and delivery capabilities.
       Because NRCS is responsible for disbursing billions of 
     dollars on an annual basis, ensuring the financial integrity 
     of the agency's management systems is critical. The process 
     of reviewing its books and accounting for various financial 
     controls is valuable; NRCS may ultimately improve program 
     delivery and performance as it rethinks how it manages its 
     money.
       Accordingly, NRCS must submit a report to the Committees 
     that details how the agency is responding to the 2008 audit 
     findings so that it does not receive a second disclaimer of 
     opinion in its fiscal year 2009 audit. The report should 
     detail a recovery plan, with milestones, for how NRCS will 
     address all of the deficiencies identified in the 2008 audit. 
     Finally, the report should detail a plan to improve its 
     program delivery to ensure that all funds that Congress 
     provides for conservation are used in a timely, accurate, and 
     cost-effective manner.
       Furthermore, the bill provides $10,000,000 in Conservation 
     Technical Assistance to strengthen the agency's program and 
     financial management capabilities. NRCS is expected to 
     appropriately use these additional funds to enhance the 
     agency's budgeting, accounting, contracting, and information 
     technology systems, as well as program delivery oversight and 
     accountability. NRCS must submit an expenditure plan to the 
     Committees within 60 days of enactment of this Act for how 
     the agency will use the additional funds with an explanation 
     for how the expenditures will strengthen the agency's 
     performance.
       The 2008 farm bill made substantive changes to the design 
     and intended performance of the Conservation Stewardship 
     Program (CSP). There is concern, however, that the redesigned 
     program may place greater program delivery burdens on NRCS's 
     field staff and overlay additional complex requirements on 
     top of other conservation priorities.
       As NRCS prepares the design and delivery of the 
     reauthorized program, the agency is directed to submit an 
     assessment of the former program's performance to the 
     Committees. The report should describe progress made in 
     estimating CSP's environmental performance and detail the 
     program's environmental outcomes. The report should compare 
     the cost effectiveness of CSP relative to other NRCS 
     implemented programs, including Conservation Technical 
     Assistance and other programs authorized by the farm bill. 
     Finally, the report should detail how the new program that 
     the Administration will implement will improve upon the cost 
     efficiency and environmental performance of its predecessor.
       It is understood that the President's budget maintains the 
     activities of the National Water Management Center in Little 
     Rock, Arkansas, from within the funds provided in the 
     Conservation Operations account.
       Funding for fiscal year 2008 projects is not continued in 
     fiscal year 2009 unless specifically mentioned in the 
     following table. The following funds are directed to be used 
     in cooperative agreements continued with the same cooperator 
     entities as in the fiscal year 2008 agreements, except as 
     noted.
       The following is a list of Congressionally-designated

     destroyed by severe flooding.
       Tourism and education can play a crucial role in rural 
     economic development strategies and the Department is 
     encouraged to consider demonstration projects that measure 
     actual benefits of these strategies.
       The Department is urged to look at the potential impact of 
     a commercially viable algae-based biofuels production system 
     on rural development.

       Section 516 (j) of the Housing Act of 1949 directs the 
     Secretary to use up to 10 percent of the amounts available in 
     any fiscal year to provide financial assistance to encourage 
     the development of farm labor housing projects. USDA has used 
     this authority only on an intermittent basis. For this 
     reason, the Department is directed that 10 percent of section 
     516 grant funds be allocated by the Rural Housing Service for 
     technical assistance for farm labor housing. The Department 
     is directed to provide a report to the Committees detailing 
     the amount made available for technical assistance in fiscal 
     years 2008 and 2009.
       Since the inception of the farm labor housing program, the 
     Department has financed almost 36,000 units for over 
     $1,200,000,000. Yet, the Department has little information on 
     the physical or financial status of the projects. An 
     assessment of these units would provide information on the 
     physical condition of projects, their financial status, 
     occupancy issues and other management and compliance issues 
     confronting management of developments financed under the 
     farm labor housing program. The Government Accountability 
     Office is directed to conduct an assessment of the properties 
     financed under the farm labor housing program.

             RURAL WATER AND WASTE DISPOSAL PROGRAM ACCOUNT

                     (including transfers of funds)

       The bill provides $556,268,000 for the Rural Water and 
     Waste Disposal Program Account.
       The 2008 farm bill mandates the procedure the Department 
     will use to determine poverty and intermediate borrower 
     interest rates for direct Water and Waste Disposal Facility 
     loans. Borrowers in this program will be required to rely 
     more heavily on debt and less on grants.

[[Page H1685]]

       Under these provisions, there is a concern that needed 
     program resources will not be delivered to the poorest, most 
     remote communities currently served. The bill provides the 
     same level of budget authority as in 2008 and the Secretary 
     is expected to deliver at least the same total program level 
     to communities with similar socio-economic and geographic 
     characteristics as would have been served in 2008 absent this 
     change. The Secretary shall provide a report to the 
     Committees detailing how the Secretary plans to implement 
     these directives. This report should include quantitative 
     measures proposed to determine the socio-economic and 
     geographic characteristics of communities served. The report 
     should also identify benchmarks to evaluate if in fact 
     communities of similar characteristics are being served. By 
     November 1, 2009, the Secretary shall provide a comprehensive 
     analysis and report to the Committees, utilizing these 
     measures and benchmarks, to determine the results of this 
     change in law. The Secretary is further directed to submit 
     quarterly reports to the Committees on the distribution of 
     funds between loans and grants, beginning one month after 
     enactment of this Act.
       With reference to water and waste disposal systems grants 
     for Native Americans, including Native Alaskans and the 
     Colonias, the Secretary is directed to provide a report to 
     the Committees that identifies the specific areas in which 
     water and waste disposal program resources have been 
     provided, where additional resources are most needed, the 
     2009 distribution of resources, and the relative costs of 
     program delivery to the various areas and regions covered by 
     the authorities identified for use of these specific funds.
       The Department is expected to continue to provide support 
     for the National Drinking Water Clearinghouse through the 
     water and waste technical assistance and training grant 
     program.

     providing the Committees with quarterly reports on this 
     contract, including the effects on enrollment, program 
     access, error rates, and spending on administrative expenses. 
     The quarterly reports should also include the monthly Indiana 
     Program Operations Data reports required by USDA as well as 
     the Department's analysis of these reports. The Secretary is

     access standards or if performance standards as stated in the 
     contract are not met.
       Section 4307 of the 2008 farm bill requires the Secretary 
     to carry out a nationally representative survey of the foods 
     purchased during the most recent school year for which data

     make healthy food choices within a limited budget. The report 
     shall include which programs this nutrition education is 
     funded through, how much was provided in fiscal years 2007 
     and 2008 for each program, and a description of all guidance 
     materials and policy documents that were developed with this 
     funding in fiscal years 2007 and 2008.
       The Department is directed to provide the Committees with a 
     report on federal activity related to metropolitan areas 
     regarding links between the nutrition programs and small and 
     local agricultural producers.

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

       The bill provides $6,860,000,000 for the Special 
     Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and 
     Children (WIC). The bill includes $14,850,000 for 
     continuation of the breastfeeding peer counselor program.
       The amount provided in the bill takes into account several 
     changes from the budget request.
       First, both food cost and participation estimates have 
     increased significantly since the budget request was 
     submitted in February. USDA's Special Supplemental Nutrition 
     Program for Women, Infants and Children December 2008 Report 
     to Congress assumes WIC participation will be nearly 9.1 
     million per month, as opposed to 8.6 million assumed in the 
     President's budget request. It further assumes that monthly 
     food costs will be $44.94, as opposed to $43.55 included in 
     the President's budget request. These new assumptions result 
     in a budget shortfall of $455,000,000, according to the 
     December report.
       Second, the bill again does not include a limitation on 
     State nutrition services and administration (NSA) grants as 
     proposed in

[[Page H1686]]

     the budget and assumed in the December report. The budget 
     request included a reduction of $150,000,000 associated with 
     this limitation, although there is concern that the estimate 
     is insufficient. Therefore, the bill provides $180,000,000 to 
     ensure NSA grants are fully funded. Reducing support for 
     critical WIC services including nutrition education, obesity 
     prevention, breastfeeding promotion and support, healthcare 
     referrals, and immunization screening is not a wise or 
     acceptable method of achieving budget savings.
       Third, although the budget request states that the funding 
     request for WIC includes $150,000,000 to restore the 
     contingency fund, this is a disingenuous statement. The 
     budget request assumes the use of the entire contingency fund 
     to maintain WIC participation. No funding is requested in the 
     President's budget that would be available for unforeseen 
     events, which is the purpose of a contingency fund. 
     Therefore, the WIC funding level is currently estimated to be 
     sufficient to meet program needs, and includes an additional 
     $125,000,000 to restore the contingency fund.
       Food cost and participation estimates continue to change, 
     and USDA is continuing to monitor estimates and provide 
     monthly updates. This situation will be monitored and 
     additional action will be taken as necessary to ensure that 
     funding provided in fiscal year 2009 is sufficient to serve 
     all eligible applicants.
       The Department is directed to continue providing monthly 
     reports to the Committees on the program performance and 
     estimated funding requirements to fully fund the WIC program.


               SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

       The bill provides $53,969,246,000 for the supplemental 
     nutrition assistance program. Included in this amount is a 
     reserve of $3,000,000,000, to remain available until 
     September 30, 2010.
       The bill includes $48,843,897,000 for program expenses, 
     $1,760,435,000 for grants to Puerto Rico, $114,914,000 for 
     the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations, and 
     $250,000,000 for commodity purchase for the Emergency Food 
     Assistance Program.
       Included in the recommended level for other program costs 
     are $500,000 to increase assistance for USDA's Center for 
     Nutrition Policy and Promotion in the development and 
     maintenance of MyPyramid and Dietary Guidelines materials in 
     support of nutrition education for the eligible population; 
     an increase of $3,000,000 for payment accuracy and 
     cooperative services, retailer integrity and trafficking, and 
     computer support; and an increase of $500,000 for program 
     evaluation and modernization.
       Many low-income communities in urban centers, rural areas, 
     and Tribal communities have the highest rates of diet-related 
     diseases, such as diabetes and obesity. These communities 
     also have poor access to healthy, affordable, and fresh foods 
     in retail grocery stores, which can limit the real healthy 
     food choices available to their families and children. The 
     Department is encouraged to lead an interagency review of 
     factors contributing to a lack of access to healthy foods and 
     recommend ways to address these issues through existing 
     government programs as well as private sector solutions. The 
     Department is directed to study the issue of food desserts in 
     low-income communities and issue a report to the Committees 
     no later than eighteen months from the date of enactment of 
     this Act.
       FNS is directed to provide a report to the Committees on 
     the feasibility of installing electronic benefit transfer 
     machines at all of the district or county farmers markets 
     across the country.
       The Secretary is encouraged to continue the purchase of 
     bison from producer-owned and Native American owned 
     cooperatives for the Food Distribution Program on Indian 
     Reservations. Although funding is not provided specifically 
     for bison purchase, historically these purchases have been 
     important for the Native American population both 
     economically and nutritionally.


                      COMMODITY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

       The bill provides $230,800,000 for the Commodity Assistance 
     Program.
       Of that amount, the bill provides $160,430,000 for the 
     Commodity Supplemental Food Program. It is expected that with 
     this funding level, 2008 participation will be maintained.
       The bill provides $49,500,000 for administrative funding 
     for the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). In 
     addition, the bill grants the Secretary authority to transfer 
     up to an additional 10 percent from TEFAP commodities for 
     this purpose.
       The bill provides $19,800,000 for the Farmers' Market 
     Nutrition Program and the Secretary is directed to obligate 
     these funds within 45 days.


                   NUTRITION PROGRAMS ADMINISTRATION

       The bill provides $142,595,000 for Nutrition Programs 
     Administration.
       FNS awarded a contract to the National Academy of Sciences' 
     Institute of Medicine (IOM) for review of National School 
     Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program meal patterns in 
     February 2008. In September 2008, the contract was modified 
     to also include an examination of meal patterns in the Child 
     and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). A Phase I report 
     outlining an approach to the analysis for school lunch and 
     school breakfast was released in December 2008, and a set of 
     recommendations for lunch and breakfast in a Phase II report 
     is scheduled for publication in October 2009. The IOM 
     Committee will then focus on meal patterns for the CACFP, 
     with recommendations scheduled for publication in October 
     2010. FNS is directed to provide periodic updates as 
     appropriate to the Committees.
       FNS is directed to make all policy documents related to the 
     WIC program (including, but not limited to, instructions, 
     memoranda, guidance, and questions and answers) available to 
     the public on the internet within one week of their release 
     to state WIC administrators.

                     (Including Transfers of Funds)

       The bill provides $165,436,000 for the Foreign Agricultural 
     Service (FAS), Salaries and Expenses.
       The OIG highlighted in its 2007 Management Challenges 
     report that one of USDA's top challenges is to develop a 
     ``proactive, integrated strategy to assist agricultural 
     producers to meet global trade challenges.'' In light of this 
     major management hurdle, concerns exist about a number of 
     OIG's recent findings regarding FAS's market development 
     programs.
       In 2007, OIG reviewed the extent to which FAS's market 
     development programs help to expand trading opportunities for 
     U.S. agricultural products. In addition, the Office of 
     Management and Budget (OMB) also reviewed FAS's market 
     development programs in 2005. The two offices expressed 
     concern that the programs could not provide assurance that 
     they were effective or served a clear need. The offices also 
     stated that the programs subsidized entities that may not 
     need government funding and that the programs may not even 
     provide useful information to U.S. exporting companies.
       The government's investments in market development and 
     trade promotion activities should be cost effective and 
     achieve measurable outcomes. Accordingly, FAS is directed to 
     submit to the Committees a report that details how the agency 
     has addressed OIG's recommendations and implemented 
     management reforms; the results that newly instituted 
     management reforms have had on program performance and 
     accountability; and how FAS oversees the performance of 
     grants and contracts funded through its market development 
     programs, including the Market Access Program.
       Funding is provided to continue the Cochran Fellows program 
     at historical levels.
       The bill provides $1,000,000 for the Borlaug International 
     Agricultural Science and Technology Fellows Program.

       The 2008 farm bill contained a provision mandating that a 
     minimum level of Public Law 480 Title II resources be used 
     for non-emergency assistance ($375,000,000 in fiscal year 
     2009), thereby creating a ``safe-box'' for non-emergency 
     funds. FAS is directed to immediately notify the Committees 
     once a determination is made that the need for emergency 
     assistance will exceed the amount available.
       The Secretary, in consultation with the Administrator of 
     the U.S. Agency for International Development, is directed to 
     submit quarterly reports to the Committees on the status of 
     the Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust, as well as notify the 
     Committees when the Trust has been drawn down.

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

       The Food and Drug Administration has received significant 
     increases in appropriated funds over the past several years. 
     Specifically, the agency received an increase of 
     $145,093,000, or nine percent, in the fiscal year 2008 
     appropriations act. An additional $150,000,000 in 
     supplemental funding was provided to the agency during fiscal 
     year 2008. This bill provides an increase of $324,672,000, or 
     19 percent, above the fiscal year 2008 funding level.
       It is expected that these substantial funding increases 
     will lead to significant improvements in food and medical 
     product safety. FDA should also build on these improvements 
     by taking broader approaches to addressing safety issues. In 
     the foods area, for example, FDA might focus on the 
     identification of the most significant food safety hazards, 
     prioritized by risk and the ability to reduce such risks, and 
     develop a plan with findings, resources and tools to address 
     those specific risks. Further, FDA could do a compliance 
     audit for a whole category of foods with significant safety 
     issues, providing the agency with a much more complete 
     understanding of their risks and what needs to be done to 
     address them. This approach could have helped FDA in the 
     investigation into the Salmonella outbreak during the summer 
     of 2008, which originally focused on tomatoes before 
     additional evidence suggested that peppers may have been the 
     source of the contamination. This audit approach also could 
     be taken in other product areas, especially with regard to 
     foreign drug facilities.
       To ensure that FDA efficiently applies this funding 
     increase to its most pressing needs, FDA is directed to 
     provide an expenditure report to the Committees no later than 
     15 days after the end of each fiscal year quarter following 
     the date of enactment of this Act. This report shall include 
     specific information for:
       --The number of new hires and their estimated costs;
       --The number of inspections and their estimated costs; and
       --Information technology acquisition and development 
     spending.
       All cost estimates and spending in the quarterly reports 
     must be shown on a center/field basis.
       To provide a basis of comparison for the new activities in 
     these reports, FDA is directed to include information on base 
     funding, FTEs, inspections, and any other applicable base 
     activity levels for each activity that has received increased 
     funding. Finally, the reports must include up-to-date dollar 
     obligation data for each enhanced activity.
       The bill provides an increase of $54,531,000 for cost of 
     living adjustments instead of $25,000,000 as requested in the 
     budget. The amount provided reflects the full estimated cost 
     associated with maintaining FDA's current staff levels in 
     light of the hiring surge undertaken by the agency in fiscal 
     year 2008. The bill provides an increase of $3,739,000 for 
     rental payments to the General Services Administration.
       The bill includes an increase of $141,526,000 for 
     activities related to food safety. An increase of more than 
     $55,000,000 for food safety was provided in fiscal year 2008, 
     and FDA received an additional $72,000,000 in supplemental 
     funds during fiscal year 2008 for food safety related 
     activities. It is expected that this funding will result in 
     increased safety measures for both domestic and imported food 
     from production to consumption.
       Specifically, these funding increases will, at a minimum, 
     provide FDA with the capability to:
       --Significantly increase the number of domestic and 
     foreign, risk-based, food production and/or processing 
     facility inspections (and other high-risk products), 
     significantly increase the number of import food field exams, 
     and achieve greater laboratory capacity to support increases 
     in risk-based inspections and sampling of domestic and 
     imported foods;
       --Develop and deploy risk-based screening technologies that 
     will allow FDA to target high-risk products at the border;
       --Identify, develop and deploy new screening tools and 
     methods to identify pathogens and other contaminants, 
     including more rapid screening tools to be used by field 
     investigators and analysts;
       --Establish an early warning surveillance and notification 
     system to identify adulteration of the pet food supply and 
     outbreaks of illnesses associated with pet food;
       -- Enhance FDA's national food emergency system, allowing 
     FDA to develop a risk communication strategy that would 
     result in more rapid responses and reductions in the risk of 
     consumer contamination when food contamination occurs;
       --Expand its presence in foreign countries. FDA recently 
     opened its first foreign office in China. With this increase, 
     FDA will be able to establish FDA offices in other foreign 
     locations, as appropriate. These offices are intended to 
     enhance the ability of FDA inspectors to enter foreign food 
     facilities and to gain a greater understanding of 
     manufacturing processes overseas, resulting in more rapid 
     identification of and response to any potential food safety 
     issues. The FDA also will be able to assess the ability of 
     foreign government systems to manage food safety risks;
       --Enhance FDA's traceability capabilities for more rapid 
     and precise product tracking, which will allow FDA to contain 
     contaminated product and to provide consumers more specific 
     information when problems occur;
       --Improve risk communications to the public during food-
     related events and make it easier to receive adverse events 
     reports, including creating a reportable food registry;
       --Identify additional data and information needed to 
     increase understanding of food protection risk and 
     vulnerabilities by improving the quality of foodborne illness 
     attribution data; and
       --Support partnerships with state and local partners 
     through information technology, training and data sharing.
       The bill provides an increase of $1,000,000 for the Office 
     of Cosmetics and Colors.
       The bill provides an increase of $114,211,000 for medical 
     product safety. An increase of more than $21,000,000 for 
     medical product safety was provided in fiscal year 2008, and 
     FDA received an additional $58,000,000 in supplemental funds 
     during fiscal year 2008 for medical product safety. As noted 
     above, it is expected that this funding will result in safer 
     drugs, devices, and biologic products for consumers. Similar 
     to a recent approach FDA has taken to address overall food 
     safety issues, FDA is directed to prepare and provide to the 
     Committees on Appropriations a comprehensive approach to 
     ensuring the safety of medical products from the 
     manufacturing of raw ingredients or components to consumer 
     use.
       Specifically, these funding increases will, at a minimum, 
     provide FDA with the capability to:
       --Significantly increase foreign and domestic medical 
     product facility inspections, improve laboratory 
     infrastructure and rapid analysis tools, and conduct many 
     more laboratory analyses and several thousand import exams 
     and samples;
       --Establish a unique device identification system to track 
     devices, facilitate recalls, and support inventory 
     management;
       --Begin to implement the safety requirements outlined in 
     the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act;
       --Upgrade the agency's information technology to enable 
     data sharing and enhanced analysis of adverse events;
       --Develop a regulated product information data warehouse 
     that will enable information sharing with other regulatory 
     agencies; and
       --Integrate risk-based information into data systems that 
     will support FDA's ability to improve electronic screening of 
     imports and allow the agency to proactively identify problems 
     and risks associated with imported products.
       The bill provides $16,000,000 for the critical path 
     initiative, including not less than $4,000,000 for 
     competitive contracts or grants to universities and non-
     profit organizations to support critical path projects. 
     Funding for critical path activities is distributed 
     throughout FDA's program areas, and the Office of Critical 
     Path Programs (OCPP) is responsible for coordinating these 
     activities at the agency. It is understood that OCPP, working 
     with FDA's centers, will play a primary role in determining 
     which critical path efforts the agency will undertake.
       The bill provides an increase of $6,620,000 for the 
     Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising and Communication in 
     CDER. The funding provided is to be used for the review of 
     direct-to-consumer advertisements and is equal to the amount 
     of funding that the budget estimated would have been raised 
     by the fee in fiscal year 2009.
       The bill provides $2,000,000 for Demonstration Grants for 
     Improving Pediatric Device Availability, as authorized by the 
     Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007, in the 
     Center for Devices and Radiological Health. Medical device 
     products are typically developed for adults, limiting 
     children's access to safe and effective medical devices. This 
     program will provide grants to nonprofit pediatric medical 
     device consortia, which will assist scientists and innovators 
     with technical and financial resources to improve the number 
     of medical devices available to children. The Office of 
     Orphan Products Development will be responsible for carrying 
     out this program.
       The bill provides $6,000,000 for the Office of Women's 
     Health, an increase of $1,000,000.
       There is concern about the contamination of farm-raised 
     shrimp imports with banned antibiotics. FDA currently 
     inspects less than

[[Page H1688]]

     two percent of imported shrimp. FDA is strongly encouraged to 
     develop, in cooperation with state testing programs, a 
     program for increasing the inspection of imported shrimp for 
     banned antibiotics.
       FDA is encouraged to conduct workshops and engage in other 
     forms of communication with federal agencies, organizations 
     involved in blood collection and others, to ensure that those 
     organizations and the public understand the latest scientific 
     information available on blood safety issues.
       There are poor survival rates and a lack of new therapies 
     associated with many pediatric cancers, including high-risk 
     neuroblastoma. FDA is encouraged to prioritize review of new 
     treatments and clinical trials for pediatric oncology 
     patients and provide a report on these activities.
       The bill provides no less than the fiscal year 2008 level 
     in appropriated funds for activities related to the 
     Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA). Appropriations for 
     this program fund research grants and various activities to 
     develop and enforce quality standards for mammography 
     service. On June 26, 2008, the Committees received a report 
     on actions being taken to implement recommendations made in 
     the Institute of Medicine report entitled ``Breast Imaging 
     Quality Standards.'' The report stated that FDA held an open 
     public meeting on September 28 and 29, 2006, and has been 
     considering potential amendments to MQSA, which would address 
     the IOM report, since this meeting. To date, FDA has not 
     acted on any of these recommendations. This is an 
     unacceptable delay. FDA is directed to report to the 
     Committees on which amendments that FDA will propose to MQSA, 
     if any, in response to the IOM report recommendations, and 
     provide a timeline for these amendments.
       The importance of seafood to a healthy diet is recognized, 
     but there are concerns that FDA does not focus sufficient 
     attention on economic integrity issues, particularly with 
     respect to mislabeling of species, weights, country of 
     origin, and treatment. FDA is encouraged to work with states 
     to more aggressively combat fraud in parts of the seafood 
     industry.
       The Hawaii Department of Agriculture has proposed a state-
     wide standardized food safety certification system. FDA is 
     encouraged to work with the State of Hawaii on this system 
     and to provide funding if appropriate.
       Serious concerns have been raised about illnesses and 
     deaths from Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus 
     (MRSA). Estimates suggest that tens of thousands of persons 
     develop serious MRSA infections in the United States each 
     year and thousands die. While both FDA and USDA fund research 
     on this issue, more may need to be done. FDA is encouraged to 
     work with USDA and CDC, through the National Antibiotic 
     Resistance Monitoring System and/or the Antibiotic Resistance 
     Interagency Task Force, to address the issue of the 
     prevalence of MRSA in domestic farm animals.
       The bill provides funding for the following items: 
     $1,650,000 for the Agricultural Products Food Safety 
     Laboratory at New Mexico State University; $525,000 for 
     collaborative drug safety research at the Critical Path 
     Institute and the University of Utah; $1,608,000 for dietary 
     supplements research at the National Center for Natural 
     Products Research in Mississippi; $2,077,000 for the National 
     Center for Food Safety and Technology, Summit-Argo, Illinois; 
     $139,000 for the Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference 
     (ISSC); $174,000 for ISSC vibrio vulnificus education; 
     $69,000 for the Waste Management Education and Research 
     Consortium at New Mexico State University; and $1,399,000 for 
     the Western Region Center of Excellence at the University of 
     California-Davis. Funding for these items was included in the 
     budget request.


                        BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES

       The bill provides $12,433,000 for FDA buildings and 
     facilities, as requested in the amended budget. This funding 
     shall be used to upgrade FDA facilities and laboratories that 
     are currently below public safety standards and incapable of 
     performing agency requirements. In providing this funding, 
     specific projects are not approved, as the backlog of 
     maintenance and repairs at FDA locations is significant. FDA 
     is directed to prioritize this funding consistent with the 
     backlog of maintenance and repairs and improve the average 
     facility condition index at FDA sites. Within 30 days of the 
     date of enactment of this Act, FDA is directed to provide a 
     plan for allocating the funding to the Committees. The plan 
     should include the methodology used to allocate the 
     resources; the specific maintenance or repairs that will be 
     conducted; whether the funding allocated to the site will 
     complete a project or is partial funding for the project; and 
     if partial funding for a project is provided, the full cost 
     of completing the project.

      DIVISION B--COMMERCE, JUSTICE, SCIENCE AND RELATED AGENCIES 
                        APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2009

                    TITLE I--DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE

                   International Trade Administration


                     OPERATIONS AND ADMINISTRATION

       The bill includes $429,870,000 in total resources for the 
     programs of the International Trade Administration (ITA). 
     This amount includes a direct appropriation of $420,431,000 
     and estimated offsetting fee collections of $9,439,000. Funds 
     are to be available for the following activities at no less 
     than the following amounts:

Import administration.......................................$66,357,000
Market access and compliance (MAC)...........................42,332,000
Manufacturing and services...................................48,592,000
Executive direction..........................................25,411,000
U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service...........................237,739,000

       Reporting requirements.--ITA is directed to submit to the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations, not later than 
     60 days after the enactment of this Act, a spending plan for 
     all ITA units that incorporates any carryover balances from 
     prior fiscal years, and is updated to reflect the obligation 
     of funds on a quarterly basis.
       The positive and negative effects of a free trade agenda 
     are difficult to balance, but it is critical that the United 
     States government upholds its responsibility to enforce trade 
     laws, particularly with China. If trading partners do not 
     abide by the rules that are set in the global trading system, 
     United States firms are unable to compete on a level playing 
     field. The United States government has an obligation to 
     ensure that U.S. companies are not forced to compete with 
     foreign companies that are engaged in unfair trading 
     practices.
       Import Administration.--The bill includes not less than 
     $66,357,000 for the Import Administration (IA). ITA is urged 
     to implement proactive trade enforcement activities, 
     including textile safeguard actions with respect to China's 
     World Trade Organization Accession Agreement, bilateral 
     quotas on non-WTO members, and textile provision of the 
     United States preferential programs and agreements, through 
     filling of vacancies in enforcement offices.
       The bill designates $5,900,000 for the Office of China 
     Compliance within the IA appropriation. The office is under-
     staffed and undergoing a reorganization that may potentially 
     damage its long-term effectiveness. IA is directed to fully 
     staff anti-dumping (AD) efforts and to ensure that the office 
     consists of experienced investigators, accountants, trade 
     analysts, and technical experts to aggressively investigate 
     AD cases. The office shall notify the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations of any impediments to hiring or 
     retaining this expertise. IA is further directed to expand 
     the size of the AD and countervailing duty (CVD) verification 
     teams and ensure new analysts receive on-site training in 
     verification practices and techniques.
       IA's absorption of $2,000,000 in fees in recent years has 
     eroded resources that otherwise would have been expended in 
     conducting investigations and reviews of AD/CVD cases. U.S. 
     industries should not have to pay fees to file AD/CVD 
     petitions; therefore, IA should not be charged for fees.
       Import monitoring.--ITA is expected to undertake apparel 
     import monitoring, focusing on prices of imports from China 
     and Vietnam and whether their state-run industries are 
     illegally pricing products and dumping in the U.S. market.
       Travel expenditures.--The Department is directed to 
     increase the number of investigative teams traveling to China 
     and India, the sources of most trade complaints, to verify 
     documentation of information provided by foreign companies. 
     The Department is expected to submit quarterly reports to the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations regarding ITA's 
     travel expenditures, including separate breakouts of funding, 
     number of trips and the purposes of travel to both China and 
     India.
       Appalachian-Turkish Trade Project (ATTP).--The Commercial 
     Service is commended for its leadership role in helping to 
     implement the mission of the ATTP, and is expected to 
     continue to be a prominent ATTP sponsor.
       World Trade Organization.--The Department of Commerce is 
     directed, in consultation with the United States Trade 
     Representative, to continue to negotiate within the WTO to 
     seek express recognition of the existing right of WTO Members 
     to distribute monies collected from antidumping and 
     countervailing duties. The agency shall consult with and 
     provide regular reports every 60 days to the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations. In addition, negotiations shall 
     be conducted within the WTO consistent with the negotiating 
     objectives contained in the Trade Act of 2002, Public Law 
     107-210, to maintain strong U.S. trade remedies laws, prevent 
     overreaching by WTO Panels and the WTO Appellate Body, and 
     prevent the creation of obligations never negotiated or 
     agreed to by the United States.
       Reduced fees.--ITA reduced fees for export promotion 
     services and trade missions for 2005 hurricane-affected 
     companies. In light of the ongoing need to encourage 
     exporting and assist local businesses with their economic 
     recovery efforts, ITA is encouraged to find ways to extend 
     these fee reductions through fiscal year 2009 for companies 
     affected by hurricanes in the Gulf region.
       Within the appropriation, $4,400,000 is provided for the 
     following activities:

[[Page H1730]]

                    Bureau of Industry and Security


                     OPERATIONS AND ADMINISTRATION

       The bill includes $83,676,000 for the Bureau of Industry 
     and Security (BIS), which is $500,000 above the budget 
     request. Of the amount provided, $14,767,000 is for 
     inspections and other activities related to national 
     security, and $2,385,000 is for program enhancements and new 
     initiatives that will advance BIS' export control and 
     enforcement activities.

                  Economic Development Administration

       The bill includes $272,800,000 for the programs and 
     administrative expenses of the Economic Development 
     Administration (EDA), which is $149,168,000 above the 
     request.


              ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ADMINISTRATION PROGRAMS

       The bill includes $240,000,000 for the Economic Development 
     Assistance Programs, an increase of $147,200,000 above the 
     request. Of the amounts provided, funds are to be distributed 
     as follows:

Global climate change mitigation initiative.................$14,700,000
Public works................................................133,280,000
Planning.....................................................31,000,000
Technical assistance..........................................9,400,000
Research and evaluation.........................................490,000
Trade adjustment assistance..................................15,800,000
Economic adjustment assistance...............................35,330,000

       Global Climate Change Mitigation Fund.--The bill provides 
     $14,700,000 for the Global Climate Change Mitigation 
     Incentive Fund, $13,600,000 above the request. Economic 
     development must address the effects of climate change. EDA 
     is directed to provide a report and spend plan on the fund to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations, no later 
     than 90 days after enactment of the Act. The report should 
     detail the scope of the fund, the criteria for approval of 
     fund expenditures, and the methodology EDA will employ when 
     reviewing grants.
       Public Works.--The bill provides $133,280,000 for Public 
     Works, $126,080,000 above the budget request. These funds are 
     critical to local communities and industries faced with 
     increased economic pressures and dislocations in the rapidly 
     changing global economy.
       Planning.--The bill provides $31,000,000 for planning, 
     $4,000,000 above the request. EDA is directed to allocate 
     $3,700,000 of the additional planning resources to the 
     existing network of 370 Economic Development Districts 
     (EDDs), with the remaining $300,000 to reduce the backlog of 
     designated-but-unfunded EDDs. This increase provides EDDs 
     with the flexibility needed to engage local government, 
     business, and community leadership in setting and pursuing 
     strategic job creation and retention initiatives effectively.
       Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA).--The bill provides 
     $15,800,000 for trade adjustment assistance, an increase of 
     $1,700,000 over the request. Not less than $200,000 and no 
     more than $350,000 shall be available to fund permanent FTE. 
     TAA has been heavily dependent on interns to process key 
     program elements. While interns can supplement staff, they 
     should not be relied upon to solve permanently staffing 
     shortages. EDA is directed to provide quarterly reports on 
     its progress in hiring of permanent FTE and processing 
     levels, to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations, 
     with the first report to be delivered within 90 days of 
     enactment of this Act.
       Hawaii field office.--EDA is strongly encouraged to 
     increase staff support for this field office due to its 
     exceptionally large geographic area.
       Funding disbursements.--EDA is directed to allocate all 
     funding, including supplemental and disaster funding, through 
     the competitive, regional allocation process.


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The bill includes $32,800,000 for EDA salaries and 
     expenses, $1,968,000 above the budget request.
       Current operational structure.--The bill fully funds the 
     request for salaries and expenses appropriation, which 
     provides adequate funding to begin filling vacancies within 
     regional offices. EDA is directed to fill vacancies within 
     regional offices prior to filling vacancies within 
     headquarters. Continued commitment to the current operational 
     structure, with six regional offices in Atlanta, Austin, 
     Chicago, Denver, Philadelphia, and Seattle, is reiterated.
       Transfer authority.--The bill includes language providing 
     EDA with permissive transfer authority, not to exceed 
     $4,000,000, from EDA program grants, subject to the Section 
     505 limitations on transfers, for additional salaries and 
     expenses for grant administration and management. EDA is also 
     strongly encouraged to utilize retired EDA officials to 
     address staffing needs on a volunteer basis.

                  Minority Business Development Agency

                     Minority Business Development

       The bill includes $29,825,000 for the Minority Business 
     Development Agency, which is $1,202,000 above the budget 
     request. Within the funds provided, existing Native American 
     Business Development Centers are continued, and $825,000 is 
     provided for the following activities:

     which is $486,000 above the budget request. This funding 
     provides for a full SIPP sample of 45,000 households to begin 
     in September 2008 and will allow for improvements, including 
     security enhancements, to the current SIPP system by fiscal 
     year 2012.

     been provided to return the 2010 Census to a more reliable, 
     paper-based operation, with the expectation that the new 
     Administration will focus the requisite oversight to ensure a 
     successful Decennial. It is noted that the Department's past 
     lack of critical oversight and the previous Administration's 
     lack of attention to the 2010 Decennial significantly 
     increased the risk of failure for this constitutionally-
     mandated effort.
       Life cycle cost estimate.--The Census Bureau has recently 
     negotiated a replan of the FDCA contract which will utilize 
     the handheld devices only for the address canvassing and rely 
     on a paper-based operation for non-response followup. This 
     replan results in a significant increase in the life cycle 
     cost of the Decennial Census, but allows for greater 
     predictability in remaining cost estimates. The full impact 
     of the life cycle increase is as yet undefined, but may 
     increase by $3,000,000,000. The Census Bureau is directed to 
     implement the Government Accountability Office's June 16, 
     2008, report recommendations on life cycle cost estimates and 
     provide an updated life cycle cost estimate with the 
     submission of the fiscal year 2010 budget request.
       2010 Decennial milestones.--Report language that 
     accompanies the fiscal year 2008 supplemental appropriations 
     for the Census Bureau regarding the development and reporting 
     of milestones associated with the 2010 Census is adopted by 
     reference.
       Communications.--Paid media is critical to promoting 
     increased participation in the 2010 Decennial, particularly 
     in minority and other hard-to-count populations. In the 2000 
     Decennial, it improved the rate of response, particularly in 
     communities with limited English proficiency. Despite 
     operational improvements to the Census' conduct of the 
     Decennial and upfront purchasing of media, the return to a 
     paper-based nonresponse followup should result in a 
     reevaluation of communication needs in light of changes to 
     the process. Census is directed to conduct such reevaluation, 
     and to submit a comprehensive communication plan in its 
     fiscal year 2010 budget request that incorporates the effect 
     of the replan and lack of handhelds for non-response 
     followup.
       Partnerships.--The Bureau of the Census is directed to 
     allocate sufficient funding from within the appropriation 
     provided to support robust partnership and outreach efforts 
     in preparation for the 2010 Decennial, with specific focus on 
     hard-to-reach populations. Funding provided for the census 
     partnership program will enlist community leaders to 
     encourage their constituencies to fill out their census 
     forms, emphasizing the importance of the census to their 
     local community and education system. The increase in mail-
     back response rates as a result of such promotional efforts 
     will likely result in substantial savings during nonresponse 
     followup enumeration.
       Language assistance programs.--The Census Bureau is 
     directed to provide updates on a semi-annual basis on its 
     language assistance program, including information on how it 
     will reach and assist respondents who speak Asian, American 
     Indian and Alaska Native languages, Spanish, and other 
     languages spoken by ethnic immigrants in the United States 
     for the American Community Survey (ACS) and the 2010 
     Decennial.
       Additional outreach.--The Census Bureau is directed to 
     provide not less than $10,000,000 for Census in Schools 
     competitive grants and adult education materials for the 2010 
     Decennial. Census in Schools and adult education materials 
     provide significant outreach to hard-to-reach populations 
     through the medium of take-home materials that educate 
     students, their parents and their extended families.
       Data on small population groups.--In many ethnic and 
     immigrant communities, gathering accurate information about 
     smaller subgroups is extremely important for policymakers, as 
     the needs among the various populations vary significantly. 
     The Census Bureau is urged to ensure that reliable 
     information about Asian, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, and 
     other national origins subgroups, especially numerically 
     smaller groups, is collected from the ACS and Decennial 
     census and published. The Bureau is directed to report back 
     to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees within 90 
     days of enactment of this Act, describing the steps it will 
     take to ensure the availability and accuracy of the data.
       Offshore U.S. jurisdictions.--The efforts of the Census 
     Bureau to consider new options for reporting data reflecting 
     all citizens of the United States, including Puerto Rico and 
     other offshore U.S. jurisdictions, are noted.

       National Telecommunications and Information Administration


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The bill includes $19,218,000 for the salaries and expenses 
     of the National Telecommunications and Information 
     Administration (NTIA), which is $773,000 above the budget 
     request.
       Enhance 911.--The Digital Television Transition and Public 
     Safety Fund made $43,500,000 available in mandatory funding 
     to implement the ENHANCE 911 Act of 2004. The Assistant 
     Secretary is directed to coordinate the work of the NTIA on 
     this critical program with other relevant Federal agencies.
       Reimbursements.--The bill retains language from previous 
     years allowing the Secretary of Commerce to collect 
     reimbursements from other Federal agencies for a portion of 
     the cost of coordination of spectrum management, analysis, 
     and operations. The NTIA shall submit a report to the House 
     and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than June 1, 
     2009, detailing the collection of reimbursements from other 
     agencies related to spectrum management, analyses and 
     research.


    PUBLIC TELECOMMUNICATIONS FACILITIES, PLANNING AND CONSTRUCTION

       The bill includes $20,000,000 for Public Telecommunications 
     Facilities, Planning and Construction. The budget request 
     proposed to terminate this program.

               United States Patent and Trademark Office


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The bill includes $2,010,100,000 for the United States 
     Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), which is the same as the 
     USPTO revised fee collection estimate dated December 5, 2008.
       National Intellectual Property Law Enforcement Coordination 
     Council (NIPLECC).--The bill includes a provision that 
     transfers $750,000 to ``Departmental Management, Salaries and 
     Expenses'' for activities associated with NIPLECC. In 
     subsequent years, it is expected that funds will be requested 
     through the Executive Office of the President.
       Backlog of patent applications.--The Government 
     Accountability Office has found that the backlog of 
     unexamined patent applications at the USPTO has increased by 
     nearly 73 percent since fiscal year 2002. Currently, the 
     average pendency of applications is 32 months. If this trend 
     continues, average pendency will be 52 months by 2012. Since 
     2005, the USPTO budget has grown by over $500,000,000, yet 
     pendency and backlog have worsened. Therefore, the bill 
     includes language transferring $2,000,000 to the Office of 
     Inspector General for the express purpose of conducting 
     continual audit engagements and oversight at the USPTO.
       The USPTO has responded to the backlog by issuing final 
     rules limiting the ability of applicants to modify their 
     applications with additional information and claims through 
     the use of continuing applications, even though an 
     overwhelming majority of users of the patent system objected 
     when given the opportunity for public comment. In addition, 
     the United States District Court for the Eastern District of 
     Virginia has enjoined the issuance of the rules changes as 
     exceeding the statutory authority of the Undersecretary and 
     Director.
       However, the sustained increase in the number of 
     applications that has given rise to the increasing backlog is 
     largely a consequence of a globalized economy in which 
     applicants are filing in more than one jurisdiction. This 
     means that the USPTO and other national patent offices are 
     duplicating one another's work. The Government Accountability 
     Office has found that the hiring of additional patent 
     examiners has not been sufficient to reverse this trend, and 
     is therefore unlikely to resolve the backlog problem. 
     Therefore, the most likely means of reducing the pendency of 
     patent applications is for the leading patent offices to make 
     more effective use of one another's work. The USPTO is 
     directed to take actions to reduce duplication of work 
     already performed by another patent office in a manner that 
     does not compromise the quality of the examination or 
     compromise the sovereignty of the United States. The USPTO is 
     also encouraged to review its proposed rules changes so that 
     they fall within the statutory authority of the Director and 
     take into account the concerns of the majority of users of 
     the patent system.
       USPTO operations.--The USPTO is directed to adopt the 
     principles of the Baldrige National Quality Program, which 
     represents the pinnacle of performance excellence for 
     American business. The USPTO is directed to work with the 
     Baldrige program to begin the process of incorporating these 
     principles and to report to the House and Senate Committees 
     on Appropriations on a quarterly basis on progress made 
     towards adoption.
       Patent examiners.--Numerous reviews conducted by the 
     Government Accountability Office (GAO) have shown that for 
     every two examiners hired, one leaves the agency, many citing 
     the unreasonable work productivity goals as a major reason 
     for their departure. These goals, first adopted in the

[[Page H1733]]

     1970s, have not been updated to address the ever more complex 
     technologies that encompass today's patent applications. The 
     unrealistic goals are encouraging junior examiners to leave, 
     and that will make it difficult to replace the productivity 
     rates of senior examiners when they retire. Thus, the bill 
     includes language withholding $5,000,000 of fees from 
     obligation pending a comprehensive reevaluation of the work 
     productivity goals for patent examiners and submission of the 
     results to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations.
       Spend plan.-- Any deviations from the funding distribution 
     provided for in this Act and in its accompanying statement, 
     including carryover balances, are subject to the standard 
     reprogramming procedures set forth in section 505 of this 
     Act. The USPTO is directed to submit a spending plan to the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations, incorporating 
     all carryover balances from previous years and describing any 
     changes to the patent or trademark fee structure, within 30 
     days of enactment of this Act.
       Fee estimate.--It is noted that the USPTO's actual fee 
     collections for the last four fiscal years have been less 
     than the earlier estimates. The uncertainty of fees is 
     understandable; however, results in excess appropriations. 
     USPTO is therefore directed to provide revised fee estimates 
     for fiscal year 2010 to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations, no later than September 1, 2009.

             National Institute of Standards and Technology

       The bill includes $819,000,000 for the National Institute 
     of Standards and Technology (NIST), which is $183,000,000 
     above the request.


             SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL RESEARCH AND SERVICES

       The bill includes $472,000,000 for NIST's scientific and 
     technical core programs, of which no less than $8,522,000 
     shall be for the Baldrige National Quality Program. Within 30 
     days of enactment of this Act, NIST is directed to provide a 
     spend plan that coincides with the budget restructuring the 
     agency proposed to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations on July 7, 2008. NIST is encouraged to devote 
     resources to its Measurement & Standards for Climate Change 
     Program and the Office of Law Enforcement Standards.
       Printed electronics study.--Flexible, large area and 
     printed electronics technology holds great promise for the 
     competitiveness of the United States. NIST shall enter into 
     an agreement with the National Academy of Sciences to 
     undertake a study that examines the position of the United 
     States in flexible electronics relative to efforts in other 
     countries. The National Academies shall also consider the 
     particular technologies and commercial sectors to which 
     flexible electronics apply and the recommendations that must 
     be undertaken at a Federal level for a national initiative.
       Working Capital Fund (WCF).--Within the appropriation, the 
     bill provides up to $9,000,000 for transfer to NIST's WCF, 
     which is $3,300,000 less than the budget request.
       NIST is directed to refrain from charging administrative 
     costs for congressionally directed projects, and is expected 
     to provide appropriate management and oversight of each 
     grant. Within the appropriation, $3,000,000 is provided for 
     the following congressionally directed activities:

                     INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY SERVICES

       The bill includes $175,000,000 for industrial technology 
     services. Of this amount, $110,000,000 is provided for the 
     Manufacturing Extension Partnerships (MEP) and $65,000,000 is 
     provided for the Technology Innovation Program (TIP).


                  CONSTRUCTION OF RESEARCH FACILITIES

       The bill includes $172,000,000 for construction of research 
     facilities. NIST is directed to provide to the House and 
     Senate Committees on Appropriations a spend plan for the 
     funding provided within 30 days of enactment of this Act. 
     NIST is further directed to provide annual reports on the 
     status of all construction projects, and to provide an 
     accounting of such projects to the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations.
       Funds for NIST construction are to be available as follows:

Boulder Bldg. 1E; JILA expansion; Safety, capacity, major modifications 
  & repairs.................................................$90,800,000

       Competitive construction grants.--The bill provides 
     $30,000,000 for competitive construction grants for research 
     science buildings. These grants shall be awarded to colleges, 
     universities and other non-profit science research 
     organizations on a merit basis.
       NIST is further directed to refrain from charging 
     administrative costs for congressionally directed projects 
     and competitive construction grants, and is expected to 
     provide appropriate management and oversight of each grant. 
     Within the appropriation, $44,000,000 is provided for the 
     following congressionally directed activities:

            National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

       The bill includes a total of $4,365,196,000 in 
     discretionary appropriations for the National Oceanic and 
     Atmospheric Administration, which is $261,283,000 above the 
     request.
       Justification.--NOAA is directed to work with the House and 
     Senate Committees on Appropriations to reformat its 
     justification into a more useable and user-friendly document, 
     starting with the fiscal year 2010 submission.
       Research and development (R) tracking and outcomes.--NOAA 
     is directed to continue tracking the division of R funds 
     between intramural and extramural research, and is further 
     directed to assure consistency and clarity in the collection 
     and reporting of data. NOAA is also directed to state clearly 
     its expected research outcomes and available funding in order 
     to provide transparency into the competitive grant process 
     for extramural researchers. By not providing enough 
     extramural research funding, NOAA risks discouraging 
     extramural involvement in NOAA's research programs and the 
     concomitant leveraging of external funds in support of 
     mission-oriented research. Thus, NOAA is encouraged to 
     provide additional extramural funding in future budget 
     requests.
       Atmospheric sciences.--NOAA is urged to make atmospheric 
     sciences a priority within the resources made available in 
     the bill and to request additional resources in subsequent 
     years to advance this research.


                  OPERATIONS, RESEARCH, AND FACILITIES

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

       The bill includes a total program level of $3,133,549,000 
     under this account for the coastal, fisheries, marine, 
     weather, satellite and other programs of the National Oceanic 
     and Atmospheric Administration. This total funding level 
     includes $3,045,549,000 in direct appropriations, a transfer 
     of $79,000,000 from balances in the ``Promote and Develop 
     Fishery Products and Research Pertaining to American 
     Fisheries'' account, a transfer of $3,000,000 from the 
     Coastal Zone Management Fund, and $6,000,000 is derived from 
     recoveries of prior year obligations. The direct 
     appropriation of $3,045,549,000 is $214,296,000 above the 
     request.
       Narrative descriptions and tables that identify the 
     specific activities and funding levels included in this Act 
     follow.

[[Page H1739]]

       Regional geospatial modeling grants.--The bill provides 
     $7,000,000 to continue funding for this competitive program 
     for researchers and resource managers to develop models or 
     geographic information systems using existing geodetic, 
     coastal remote sensing data, terrestrial gravity measurements 
     or other physical datasets.
       Tides and current data.--The bill provides $31,337,000, 
     which is $2,500,000 above the request, to better support 
     existing operations and maintenance of Physical Oceanographic 
     Real-Time Systems (PORTS).
       Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS).--The bill 
     provides a total of $26,500,000 for IOOS, of which no more 
     than $6,500,000 is for program administration and $20,000,000 
     is provided only for a competitive, regional ocean observing 
     systems solicitation. NOAA is directed, as part of the IOOS 
     5-year strategic plan, to develop a strategy for 
     incorporating observations systems from estuaries, bays and 
     other near shore waters as part of the IOOS regional network 
     of observatories. NOAA is directed not to tax the funds 
     designated for regional observation systems as the bill 
     provides more than adequate resources for programmatic 
     administration.
       National Centers for Coastal and Ocean Science (NCCOS).--
     Within the NCCOS program, the bill provides $15,801,000 for 
     research related to HABs, Hypoxia, and Regional Ecosystems. 
     NOAA is directed to use these funds for externally-based 
     research.
       Coral reef program.--Within the NOS appropriation, 
     $28,900,000 is provided for the coral reef program, which is 
     $2,266,000 above the request and includes $737,000 for coral 
     reef monitoring as requested under the NESDIS section; 
     $750,000 in additional funding for international coral reef 
     monitoring efforts; and $500,000 for additional funding 
     within the Caribbean. NOAA is directed to consolidate agency-
     wide coral reef activities under this one NOS line item for 
     future budget requests.
       Ocean and Coastal Management.--The goals of the Memorandum 
     of Understanding between the Office of National Marine 
     Sanctuaries and Mystic Seaport Museum are supported.
       National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS).--The 
     recommendation provides $753,510,000 for NMFS operations, 
     research and facilities, which is $29,299,000 above the 
     request, and provides full funding for activities supporting 
     the mandates of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and 
     Management Act. These funds are distributed as follows:

[[Page H1740]]

     [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH23FE09.036
     


[[Page H1741]]

       Hawaiian monk seal.--The bill provides $35,800,000 for 
     Protected Species Research and Management programs, which is 
     $1,034,000 above the request. NMFS is directed to utilize 
     funding of no less than $5,734,000 for the Hawaiian monk 
     seal. The Hawaiian monk seal may be one of the world's most 
     endangered marine species, and the agency has not provided 
     adequate funding to reverse its decline.
       Fisheries research and management programs.--The bill 
     provides $155,526,000 for fisheries research and management 
     programs and regional science and operations to fully fund 
     Magnuson-Stevens Act requirements.
       Fisheries habitat restoration.--The bill provides 
     $22,953,000. NOAA is directed to apply $500,000 for the 
     improvement of the living resources of the Chesapeake Bay 
     watershed headwater streams.
       Chesapeake Bay oyster restoration.--The bill provides 
     $4,600,000 for oyster restoration in the Chesapeake Bay. Of 
     these funds, $2,600,000 is provided for oyster restoration in 
     Maryland waters of the Chesapeake Bay, which shall be for on-
     the-ground and in-the-water restoration efforts. In addition, 
     $2,000,000 of these funds are for oyster restoration in 
     Virginia waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Funds shall not be 
     used for administrative costs, including banquets or 
     salaries.
       Regional studies, Chesapeake Bay.--NOAA's Chesapeake Bay 
     Office is directed to develop, within nine months after 
     enactment of this Act, a collaborative strategic research and 
     assessment program with the States of Maryland and Virginia. 
     This program will advance multiple species management by 
     focusing on blue crabs, oysters, and other resource species. 
     In developing this program, NOAA shall utilize the Sea Grant 
     programs from both States.
       Blue crab disaster assistance.--The bill provides 
     $10,000,000 to be equally divided between the States of 
     Maryland and Virginia for economic assistance to watermen and 
     communities impacted by the Secretary's blue crab disaster 
     declaration of September 22, 2008.
       New England fisheries assistance.--The bill provides 
     $10,000,000 to assist New England's fisheries impacted by 
     regulations and catch reductions. NOAA is directed to provide 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations with a 
     spend plan for such funds within 30 days of enactment of this 
     Act.
       Pacific salmon restoration.--The San Joaquin River 
     Restoration Settlement will restore California's second 
     longest river and help rebuild imperiled Pacific salmon runs. 
     NMFS is obligated, under the Federal court order, to 
     participate in the restoration planning and settlement 
     implementation along with other Federal agencies. NMFS is 
     expected to adhere to the requirements of the court order and 
     report back to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations on any developments.
       Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR).--The bill includes 
     $396,734,000 for OAR operations, research and facilities, 
     which is $37,492,000 above the request. These funds are 
     distributed as follows:

[[Page H1742]]

     [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH23FE09.037
     


[[Page H1743]]

       Laboratories and cooperative institutes.--Additional funds 
     are provided for all sections of laboratories and cooperative 
     institutes throughout OAR to further its commitment to the 
     NOAA Cooperative Institute for the Northern Gulf of Mexico.
       Weather and air quality research.--An additional $250,000 
     above the request is provided for other partnership programs 
     in support of instrumenting, maintaining and operating state-
     of-the-art nutrient and mercury speciation measurement 
     stations.
       Analysis of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).--In support of 
     NOAA's efforts to identify new technology platforms for 
     studying the arctic, NOAA is directed to dedicate $1,000,000 
     from within the funds provided for competitive research 
     program for the analysis of arctic UAS data.
       National undersea research program (NURP).--The bill 
     includes a total of $9,200,000 for NURP, as requested, which 
     includes funds designated for the National Undersea Research 
     Center in Connecticut.
       National Weather Service (NWS).--The bill includes 
     $847,938,000 for the NWS operations, research and facilities, 
     which is $29,105,000 above the request. These funds are 
     distributed as follows:

       Williston radar.--NOAA is directed to maintain staffing and 
     operations at the Williston Radar site through fiscal year 
     2009.
       National mesonet network grants.--The National Research 
     Council (NRC) has completed a study for NOAA, ``Developing 
     Mesoscale Meteorological Observational Capabilities to Meet 
     Multiple National Needs'' which provides a framework for a 
     full scale national mesonet network. In particular, the NRC 
     calls for the use of public/private partnerships, the 
     aggregation of a network of networks and the leveraging of 
     existing networks (public and private), as components of the 
     national mesonet for high priority regions--mountains, 
     coastal, and urban. The bill provides $11,000,000 for NOAA to 
     procure competitively a national mesonet, which will provide 
     the critical information needed to improve short- and medium-
     term weather forecasting (down to local scales), plume 
     dispersion and climate monitoring, as well as air quality 
     analyses. NOAA is directed to utilize $5,000,000 of these 
     funds to maintain operations for existing mesonet network 
     observation agreements. NOAA is further directed to utilize 
     $1,500,000 to examine the use of real time mobile data 
     collected from commercial trucking operators to evaluate, 
     validate and demonstrate the efficacy of providing 
     supplemental weather information to improve the safety and 
     efficiency of the national highway system. NOAA is directed 
     to provide to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations, within 90 days after enactment, a plan, 
     including policies and requirements, for the operation of the 
     national mesonet, as well as integration of mesonet data into 
     NWS field offices, mesoscale numerical weather prediction 
     models, and with the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing 
     System (AWIPS), as part of the AWIPS Technology Infusion 
     program. NOAA is further directed to make awards no later 
     than September 1, 2009.
       Central forecast guidance.--An additional $10,000,000 is 
     provided above the amount requested for central forecast 
     guidance to reflect more accurately that these funds shall be 
     available primarily for rent, operations and security of the 
     NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction. The increase 
     corresponds with a decrease of funds for the same amount 
     requested for Center for Weather and Climate Prediction under 
     NOAA's PAC account.
       National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information 
     Service (NESDIS).--The bill includes $187,422,000 for NESDIS 
     operations, research and facilities, which is $22,130,000 
     above the request. These funds are distributed as follows:

[[Page H1746]]

[[Page H1747]]

       Coral reef monitoring.--Funding for this request has been 
     moved to the ocean assessment program within the National 
     Ocean Service.
       Ocean surface vector winds studies.--The bill does not 
     include funding for the ocean surface vector winds studies. 
     Instead, NESDIS is directed to conduct the study in-house and 
     within available appropriations, and in conjunction with 
     NASA, which has been directed similarly.
       Data centers and information services.--The bill includes 
     $56,506,000 for archive, access and assessment, which is 
     $16,917,000 above the request and provides for additional 
     data and information archive services to address the backlog.
       Space-based scientific data.--NOAA is directed to report to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations, within 60 
     days after enactment of this Act, on its plans to obtain 
     space-based scientific data from commercial sources over the 
     next three years.
       Program support (PS).--The bill includes $450,978,000 for 
     PS operations, research and facilities, which is $56,583,000 
     above the request. These funds will be distributed as 
     follows:

[[Page H1749]]

       Climate modeling and information technology security.--
     NOAA's plans to upgrade its high performance computing and 
     communications are supported with $20,000,000 above the 
     request to accelerate climate modeling improvements and 
     improve information technology services. NOAA is also 
     encouraged to expand its partnership with the Department of 
     Energy and the National Science Foundation to provide 
     supercomputing capacity to help meet research needs.
       Competitive education grants.--The bill provides $8,500,000 
     for competitive education grants, of which $7,500,000 is for 
     a new ocean education grant program. Eligible recipients of 
     the ocean education grants must be non-profit 501(c)(3) 
     aquariums accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums 
     with informal education partnerships regarding the ocean. The 
     grants require a 50 percent non-Federal cost share and can be 
     used for capital improvements, exhibit space and educational 
     program development projects originating within the aquarium.
       BWET regional programs.--NOAA is directed to continue to 
     support existing BWET programs and is encouraged to expand 
     this program to additional regions.
       Marine operations and maintenance.--Increased funding for 
     marine services and aviation services is provided above the 
     request to offset increased fuel charges and to ensure 
     critical research and operations are conducted.
       Fleet planning and maintenance.--Given the trend in lost 
     sea days, an additional $11,000,000 is provided above the 
     request to better ensure NOAA vessels are manned properly and 
     operate safely. Improving fleet conditions and increasing 
     days at sea will strengthen NOAA's ability to carry out many 
     critical missions, including fisheries surveys, climate 
     research, and nautical charting.
       Diving regulations.--NOAA's diving program is critical to 
     conducting scientific research, ship maintenance and marine 
     operations, and NOAA's unique mission requires unique diving 
     operations. Section 106 of this bill provides the Secretary 
     the authority to prescribe diving regulations. Within 90 days 
     of enactment, NOAA is directed to submit a plan to the House 
     and Senate Committees on Appropriations on how the agency 
     will implement its own scientific and working diver 
     regulations by the end of the fiscal year, which shall 
     include recommendations on improving the viability, safety 
     and efficiency of the NOAA diving program in out-years.
       Congressionally-directed items.--Within the appropriation 
     for operations, research and facilities, the bill provides 
     for the following Congressionally-directed activities:

               PROCUREMENT, ACQUISITION AND CONSTRUCTION

       The bill includes a total program level of $1,245,647,000 
     under the Procurement, Acquisition and Construction (PAC) 
     heading, which is $4,987,000 above the request. This includes 
     a direct appropriation of $1,243,647,000 and $2,000,000 is 
     derived from recoveries of prior year obligations. The funds 
     will be distributed as follows:

[[Page H1759]]

       NOAA satellite systems.--The bill includes $965,667,000 for 
     geostationary and polar orbiting satellite programs and the 
     restoration of critical climate sensors. The impact of the 
     GOES-R out-year costs on NOAA's traditional mission areas is 
     troubling, as GOES-R demands an ever-increasing percentage of 
     NOAA's budget. If investments in necessary satellite 
     infrastructure must be funded within NOAA's budget, those 
     requirements should be accommodated in NOAA's budget requests 
     without impinging on NOAA's other critical mission 
     priorities. Furthermore, both the GOES-R and NPOESS programs 
     are entering critical phases of their respective developments 
     during the transition of administrations. The Office of 
     Inspector General recommended that the Department of Commerce 
     establish thresholds and procedures for reporting and 
     improving major deviations from GOES-R's capability, cost, 
     and schedule baseline, as well as enhancements to the 
     baseline. NOAA and the Department of Commerce are directed to 
     implement this recommendation no later than March 2, 2009.
       VIIRS.--The VIIRS instrument has consistently caused major 
     delays and cost overruns to the NPOESS program. Development 
     delays continue; forcing postponement in the launch of the 
     NPP mission, and almost certainly delaying the launch of C1 
     and C2 of NPOESS. Therefore, NOAA is directed to provide, no 
     later than March 2, 2009, to the House and Senate Committees 
     on Appropriations, a revised total cost estimate to build and 
     install the current VIIRS instrument for NPP, C1 and C2, as 
     well as an analysis of alternatives to the VIIRS instrument, 
     including cost estimates and risk analysis, as well as the 
     matrix for development and contract performance.
       Comprehensive large array data stewardship system 
     (CLASS).--NOAA CLASS is directed to establish a sound 
     technical plan and implement foundation elements to move 
     CLASS architecture to an enterprise solution that supports 
     the anticipated increase in the demand for archival and 
     distribution of current and planned data campaigns. NOAA 
     CLASS is further directed to examine the technical and 
     programmatic components required to establish an interface-
     to-data archives for the purpose of creating information 
     products that would add value for stakeholders and the user 
     community.
       Construction.--The bill provides $10,000,000 for program 
     support construction, which allows NOAA to begin its highest 
     priority construction projects.
       Cooperative Weather and Research Center.--The southeast 
     United States experiences more severe weather events, such as 
     hurricanes, tornados, lightning, flooding and severe 
     droughts, than any other region of the country. NOAA 
     dedicates few resources to respond and prepare for severe 
     weather events in this area, and unlike other regions, the 
     Southeast does not possess the surveillance, research and 
     forecasting assets to study and predict these events. The 
     bill provides a total of $10,550,000 for the NWS to build a 
     Cooperative Institute and Research Center for Southeast 
     Weather and Hydrology and to begin to develop and acquire 
     dual polar, phased array and multi-frequency Doppler Radars 
     and passive radiometers to study storms, improve rainfall 
     estimates, and to begin to provide the citizens of the 
     Southeast with state-of-the-art weather research and 
     prediction capabilities. Of the funding provided, up to 
     $1,500,000 shall be used for operations.
       NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction.--Based on 
     revised information, the bill fully funds the request for the 
     NCWCP building, but has shifted $10,000,000 to the ORF 
     appropriation to more accurately reflect that these funds 
     will be used primarily for rent, operations, and security of 
     this facility.
       Congressionally-directed items.--Within the appropriation 
     for procurement, acquisition and construction, the bill 
     provides for the following Congressionally-directed 
     activities:

       The bill includes language under this heading limiting 
     obligations of direct loans to $8,000,000 for Individual 
     Fishing Quota loans and $59,000,000 for traditional direct 
     loans.

                        Departmental Management


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The bill includes $53,000,000 for Departmental Management, 
     which is $7,583,000 less than the amended budget request.
       2010 Decennial report and certification.--The bill includes 
     language that requires the Secretary of Commerce to provide a 
     report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
     that audits and evaluates all decision documents and 
     expenditures by the Bureau of Census as they relate to the 
     2010 Decennial. The bill also includes language that 
     restricts $5,000,000 of the available appropriation from 
     obligation until the Secretary certifies to the House and 
     Senate Committees on Appropriations that the Bureau of Census 
     has met all standards and best management practices and 
     Office of Management and Budget guidelines related to 
     information technology projects and contract management.
       Emergency Steel Loan Guarantee Program (ESLG).--The 
     proposed rescission of the remaining unobligated subsidy 
     balances associated with the ESLG program is rejected.
       Information Technology (IT) security.--Within the 
     appropriation, the bill provides an increase of $4,117,000 to 
     address the Department's IT security material weaknesses and 
     other concerns raised by the Inspector General.


        HERBERT C. HOOVER BUILDING RENOVATION AND MODERNIZATION

       The bill includes $5,000,000 for costs associated with the 
     renovation of the Herbert C. Hoover building, which is 
     $2,367,000 below the budget request.


                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

       The bill includes $25,800,000 for the Office of Inspector 
     General, which is $1,034,000 above the request. The increased 
     funding is provided to address the increasing oversight 
     necessary for the 2010 Decennial Census and NOAA's satellite 
     development programs.

                    TITLE II--DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

                         General Administration


                         salaries and expenses

       For fiscal year 2009, the bill provides $105,805,000 for 
     General Administration (GA), which is equal to the budget 
     request.
       Materials in support of the annual budget request.--The 
     Department of Justice (DOJ) was the only agency under the CJS 
     Subcommittee's jurisdiction which was unable to meet the 
     liberal timetables imposed for submission of additional 
     requested information in support of the Department's fiscal 
     year 2009 budget. The Department is directed to take any 
     action necessary to ensure that such delays do not occur in 
     the fiscal year 2010 budget process.
       Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) 
     investigations.--The Department shall continue to support 
     OPR's ongoing reviews of the Federal government's 
     interrogation methods and warrantless wiretapping practices, 
     particularly through the provision of relevant documents and 
     witnesses. It is expected that these investigations will be 
     expeditiously pursued until they are complete.
       Resolution of jurisdictional disputes.--The Department is 
     currently engaged in several jurisdictional disputes, both 
     among DOJ components and between DOJ and other federal 
     agencies. Particularly troubling examples include the ongoing 
     conflict between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) 
     and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives 
     (ATF) over the investigation of explosives crimes and the 
     dispute between DOJ and the Department of Homeland Security 
     (DHS) over the appropriate location for the Office of Bombing 
     Prevention. The Attorney General (AG) is directed to submit a 
     report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
     no later than 120 days after the enactment of this Act on the 
     steps the Department has taken in order to reconcile these 
     disputes and clarify the jurisdictional lines between FBI and 
     ATF and between DOJ and DHS.
       Immigration workload.--DOJ's budget request fails to 
     articulate, or account for, the increased resource 
     requirements that result from other agencies' activities. 
     This is particularly true with respect to immigration, where 
     the Department has been repeatedly forced to redirect 
     internal resources in order to provide necessary judicial 
     support and basic care for aliens turned over to DOJ by DHS. 
     The practical effect of these redirections has been cuts to 
     non-immigration programs at DOJ. In order to accurately 
     estimate the magnitude of these funding pressures, a 
     methodology is required to create defensible fiscal linkages 
     between DHS activities and DOJ costs. The Department is 
     directed to contract with the National Academy of Sciences to 
     develop, test and select a budget model that accurately 
     captures these fiscal linkages and leverages them into an 
     estimate of DOJ's immigration-related costs. The $1,000,000 
     necessary to perform this study should be funded within the 
     appropriated level for this account, and the resulting 
     conclusions should be submitted to the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations upon completion, but not later 
     than 20 months after the enactment of this Act.
       Rent estimates.--The rent estimates produced by the Justice 
     Management Division are frequently incorrect, sometimes by 
     tens of millions of dollars. The Department is urged to 
     continue making improvements in its facilities and rent 
     management system in order to improve the accuracy of future 
     requests.
       National threat drug gangs.--No later than one year after 
     the enactment of this Act, the AG, in consultation with the 
     Secretary of Homeland Security, shall submit to the House and 
     Senate Committees on Appropriations a report, in both 
     classified and unclassified form, identifying the three 
     international drug gangs that present the greatest threat to 
     law and order in the United States; describing the 
     composition, operations, strengths and weaknesses of each of 
     these gangs; and setting forth a national strategy to 
     eliminate within four years the illegal operations of each 
     identified gang.
       In choosing the three gangs to be included, which will be 
     designated as ``National Threat Drug Gangs,'' the AG shall 
     consider the extent to which the gang conducts activities 
     with any international terrorist organization or state 
     designated by the Secretary of State as a sponsor of 
     terrorism; the volume of controlled substances that the gang 
     imports to or distributes within the United States; and the 
     extent to which the gang is a threat to children and schools 
     within the United States.
       Overseas pay equivalency.--The Department is directed to 
     address issues relating to danger pay and locality adjustment 
     disparities between DOJ employees serving abroad and overseas 
     employees of other agencies. The Department is further 
     directed to report to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations within 90 days of the enactment of this Act on 
     the steps taken to address these disparities.
       Data center operations.--GAO is requested to review the 
     operational costs of the Department's data centers from 
     fiscal year 2006 through fiscal year 2008 and to report its 
     findings to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
     no later than June 1, 2009.
       Budget restructuring proposals.--All accounts within DOJ 
     shall continue to use the fiscal year 2008 decision units and 
     account structures unless otherwise specified in prior years 
     or in the body of this explanatory statement.
       Representation funds for foreign field offices.--The lack 
     of representation funds available for foreign field office 
     staff to perform their official duties in stations outside of 
     the continental United States is concerning. Agents in 
     foreign field offices not only develop contacts with 
     international law enforcement and intelligence agencies, but 
     are also responsible for myriad other functions, including 
     the detection and prevention of terrorism and crime, 
     training, information sharing and responding to terrorist 
     attacks internationally. These contacts serve a critical role 
     in increasing Federal law enforcement's ability to identify 
     and disrupt

[[Page H1762]]

     terrorist and criminal activity domestically. Therefore, FBI, 
     ATF, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the United 
     States Marshals Service (USMS) are directed to increase the 
     amount of representation funds requested for foreign field 
     offices.


                 justice information sharing technology

       The bill provides $80,000,000 for Justice Information 
     Sharing Technology (JIST), which is $13,868,000 below the 
     budget request.
       Cyber security.--No later than 60 days after the enactment 
     of this Act, the Department is directed to report to the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on expected 
     cyber security costs in the JIST account for fiscal year 2009 
     and the Department's plan for covering these costs without 
     additional requested resources.
       Unified Financial Management System (UFMS).--Delays and 
     other issues with the live deployment of UFMS at DEA have 
     created concerns about the Department's ability to meet 
     appropriate standards of success for this project. Rather 
     than providing the relatively modest UFMS funding requested 
     in this account, the bill focuses on fully funding the other 
     important IT projects supported by JIST. Once the Department 
     can demonstrate that UFMS deployment at DEA has proceeded 
     successfully, a reprogramming will be considered to meet the 
     UFMS project's projected 2009 needs. That reprogramming 
     should include both those funds originally intended for 
     reprogramming in 2009, as well as the balance of UFMS 
     funds originally requested for appropriation in this 
     account.


            tactical law enforcement wireless communications

       The bill provides $185,000,000 for Tactical Law Enforcement 
     Wireless Communications, which is $63,349,000 above the 
     budget request.
       Integrated Wireless Network (IWN).--The request for this 
     account does not sufficiently address the Department's 
     communications deficiencies and will contribute to the 
     ongoing delays in the nationwide deployment of the IWN 
     solution. Accordingly, the bill provides a total of 
     $88,249,000 for IWN and directs the Department to use these 
     funds for accelerated IWN deployment in high priority 
     metropolitan regions. Consistent with planning materials 
     submitted along with the budget request, the Department is 
     directed to use these funds only for the modernization and 
     improvement of land mobile radio (LMR) systems. Any plans 
     related to secure cellular or data systems, or non-LMR 
     tactical equipment, must be budgeted for and requested 
     separately.
       To aid in program management and oversight, the Department 
     is directed to set specific and detailed performance 
     milestones for the use of IWN funds, including dates for 
     planned completion. These milestones should be reported to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 60 
     days of the enactment of this Act, and quarterly updates 
     should be provided on the Department's progress in meeting 
     those milestones. Continued funding support for IWN in future 
     years will be contingent on the Department's success in 
     achieving its milestones within cost, schedule and 
     performance expectations.


                   administrative review and appeals

       The bill provides $270,000,000 for Administrative Review 
     and Appeals, including $267,613,000 for the Executive Office 
     of Immigration Review (EOIR), which is $6,209,000 above the 
     budget request. The appropriation is offset by $4,000,000 in 
     fees that are collected by the Department of Homeland 
     Security and transferred to EOIR.
       Hiring new immigration judges.--Within funds provided, 
     $5,000,000 is made available to hire new immigration judges 
     and support personnel to address the growing caseload. The 
     Department and EOIR are directed, within 90 days of enactment 
     of this Act, to submit to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations a strategic plan to address the case backlogs.
       Legal Orientation Program (LOP).--With funds provided in 
     this bill and in prior year appropriations, EOIR is directed 
     to provide not less than $4,000,000 for the LOP program 
     during fiscal year 2009.
       Immigration court reforms.--Within 30 days of enactment of 
     this Act, the Department is directed to report to the House 
     and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the implementation 
     status of the 22 reform measures to improve the efficiency of 
     immigration courts that were identified by the Attorney 
     General in August, 2006.
       Competency evaluation standards.--EOIR is encouraged to 
     work with experts and interested parties in developing 
     standards and materials for immigration judges to use in 
     conducting competency evaluations of persons appearing before 
     the courts.
       The bill provides $2,387,000 for the Office of Pardon 
     Attorney to support a total of 15 permanent positions and 15 
     FTE.

                           Detention Trustee

       The bill provides $1,295,319,000 for the Office of the 
     Detention Trustee (ODT), which is equal to the budget 
     request.
       Immigration workload.--ODT appears to have significant 
     difficulties accurately estimating its annual funding 
     requirements, particularly with respect to its immigration 
     workload. If additional immigration-related funding is 
     required in excess of the amount provided herein, the 
     Department may submit a reprogramming request to address 
     those needs, consistent with section 505 of this Act.
       Population and cost data.--ODT is directed to report to the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on a quarterly 
     basis the projected and actual number of individuals in the 
     detention system, the annualized costs associated with those 
     individuals and the costs reimbursed from other Federal 
     agencies.
       District of Columbia prisoner reimbursement.--The 
     Department's prisoner reimbursement agreement with the 
     District of Columbia must be made consistent with the 
     requirements set forth in the National Capital Revitalization 
     Act of 1997. The Department is urged to work with the 
     District government to review and update the reimbursable 
     agreement in order to achieve the necessary consistency. The 
     Department should immediately notify the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations if the updated agreement will 
     require additional resources to implement.


                      office of inspector general

       The bill provides $75,681,000 for the Office of Inspector 
     General. The Inspector General is expected to continue with 
     diligent oversight of the Department's hiring, enforcement, 
     prosecutorial and policy decision making in order to ensure 
     integrity and public confidence.
       The Inspector General is commended for its continuing 
     oversight of the FBI's use of National Security Letters and 
     PATRIOT Act Section 215 orders, and is expected to continue 
     its assessment of FBI progress in implementing corrective 
     actions in these areas.
       Within funds provided, the Inspector General is expected to 
     continue its review of the FBI's development and 
     implementation of the Sentinel case management system, and to 
     assess whether cost, schedule, performance and technical 
     benchmarks are being met and whether the FBI has resolved 
     concerns identified in its previous audits.

                    United States Parole Commission


                         salaries and expenses

       The bill provides $12,570,000 for the United States Parole 
     Commission for fiscal year 2009.

                            Legal Activities


            salaries and expenses, general legal activities

                     (including transfer of funds)

       The bill provides a total of $804,007,000 for General Legal 
     Activities for fiscal year 2009. The funding is provided as 
     follows:
Solicitor General...........................................$10,440,000
Tax Division................................................101,016,000

       Federal Observer Program.--The bill provides $3,390,000 for 
     the costs of the Federal Observer Program, which places 
     election monitors in jurisdictions where the Attorney General 
     certifies or a Federal judge orders that they are necessary 
     to ensure free and fair elections.
       Criminal Division.--Within available funds, $1,800,000 is 
     directed to be allocated for an additional 10 attorneys, six 
     analysts and associated support personnel in the Criminal 
     Division to investigate and prosecute individuals who violate 
     Federal laws on serious human rights crimes, including but 
     not limited to criminal statutes on genocide, torture and war 
     crimes.


                 vaccine injury compensation trust fund

       The bill provides $7,833,000 for the Vaccine Injury 
     Compensation Trust Fund.


               salaries and expenses, antitrust division

       The bill includes $157,788,000 in budget authority for the 
     Antitrust Division, $7,197,000 above the budget request, 
     which is provided to lift the hiring freeze imposed during 
     fiscal year 2008. This appropriation is offset by 
     $157,788,000 in pre-merger filing fee collections, resulting 
     in a direct appropriation of $0.


             salaries and expenses, united states attorneys

       The bill provides $1,836,336,000 for the salaries and 
     expenses of the United States Attorneys in fiscal year 2009.
       Justice rooted in law, not in politics or favor, is a 
     founding principle of our Nation. It is deeply troubling that 
     partisan political considerations were a factor in the 
     removal of several U.S. Attorneys fired in 2006. 
     These actions severely damaged the Department's 
     credibility. It is incumbent upon the Attorney General and 
     U.S. Attorneys to restore public confidence in the 
     integrity and impartiality of their prosecutorial 
     decisions.
       Ethical and professional standards.--U.S. Attorneys are 
     vested with enormous power, and it is their sworn duty to 
     enforce the laws of this country fairly and impartially and 
     to uphold the highest standards of ethical and professional 
     conduct. The Inspector General and the Office of Professional 
     Responsibility are directed to review allegations of 
     misconduct and wrongdoing by U.S. Attorneys, and each to 
     provide on a quarterly basis to the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations a summary report on such 
     incidents investigated and any significant findings issued as 
     a result of the investigations.
       Child exploitation investigations and prosecutions.--The 
     additional $5,000,000 above the budget request is made 
     available to support the hiring of additional assistant U.S. 
     Attorneys to increase investigations and prosecutions of 
     offenses related to the sexual exploitation of children, as 
     authorized by the

[[Page H1763]]

     Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006. Not less 
     than $33,600,000 shall be available for this purpose in 
     fiscal year 2009.
       Prosecution of serious crimes in Indian Country.--Due to 
     evidence of declining rates of Federal investigation and 
     prosecution of serious crimes in Indian Country, the Attorney 
     General is directed to report to the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations, within 60 days of enactment of 
     this Act, on the strategic and resource allocation plans for 
     the prosecution of serious crimes in Indian Country, 
     including murder and rape, which are reported to Federal law 
     enforcement.


                   united states trustee system fund

       The bill provides $217,416,000 for the United States 
     Trustee System Fund. The appropriation is offset by 
     $160,000,000 in offsetting fee collections and $5,000,000 
     derived from interest on investments in U.S. securities, 
     resulting in a direct appropriation of $52,416,000.
       Data-enabled ``smart forms.''--Developed jointly by the 
     United States Trustee Program and the Administrative Office 
     of the Courts, data-enabled ``smart forms'' for filing 
     bankruptcy petitions and schedules are cost-effective tools 
     which are encouraged to be used to improve efficiencies in 
     the bankruptcy system.


      salaries and expenses, foreign claims settlement commission

       The bill provides $1,823,000 for salaries and expenses of 
     the Foreign Claims Settlement Commission in fiscal year 2009.


                     fees and expenses of witnesses

       The bill provides $168,300,000 for Fees and Expenses of 
     Witnesses, which is equal to the budget request.


           salaries and expenses, community relations service

       The bill provides $9,873,000 for salaries and expenses of 
     the Community Relations Service in fiscal year 2009.


                         assets forfeiture fund

       The bill provides $20,990,000 for the Assets Forfeiture 
     Fund, which is equal to the budget request.

                     United States Marshals Service


                         salaries and expenses

       The bill provides $950,000,000 for the USMS, which is 
     $16,883,000 above the budget request.
       Adam Walsh enforcement.--The Marshals Service has not 
     requested the resources needed to carry out the 
     responsibilities assigned to it under the Adam Walsh Child 
     Protection and Safety Act. To fulfill these responsibilities, 
     the bill provides an increase of $5,187,000, which should be 
     used to improve sex offender targeting through the National 
     Sex Offender Targeting Center and related efforts. These 
     resources are in addition to the $16,970,000 provided for 
     Adam Walsh enforcement in P.L. 110-252. Together, these 
     appropriations will provide the Marshals with a total of 
     $22,157,000 available for Adam Walsh enforcement activities 
     in 2009.
       Judicial security.--The Marshals have reported that 2008 is 
     on pace to record the highest annual number of judicial 
     threats and inappropriate communications in history. To 
     address this escalating workload, the Marshals are provided 
     $4,000,000 to analyze and investigate threats against the 
     Judiciary.
       In addition, the Marshals are urged to develop an 
     aggressive schedule for the rollout of state-of-the-art 
     detection capabilities at pilot high-threat courthouses 
     around the country. These technologies will enhance 
     courthouse security through the use of proven equipment, 
     training and procedures to screen for and detect evolving 
     threats. Special consideration should be given to those 
     technologies that have been deployed and proven effective by 
     other Federal agencies.
       Regional Fugitive Task Forces (RFTF).--The bill provides an 
     increase of $10,000,000 to the RFTF program for the 
     establishment of new, or expansion of existing, RFTFs. 
     Distribution of these resources should be based on fugitive 
     workload, giving emphasis to workload created by the Adam 
     Walsh Act.


                              construction

       The bill provides $4,000,000 for Marshals Construction, 
     which is $1,696,000 above the budget request. These funds 
     should be applied to the highest priority renovation projects 
     identified by the Marshals.

                       National Security Division


                         Salaries and Expenses

       The bill provides $83,789,000 for the National Security 
     Division (NSD), which is equal to the budget request.
       Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) backlog.-- NSD 
     is processing over 2,200 FISAs per year with only 100 
     attorneys, which has led to the creation of a backlog among 
     non-emergency FISA requests. NSD is directed to submit a 
     report on the trend in FISA backlog numbers over the past 5 
     fiscal years and NSD's plan for addressing the backlog, 
     beginning in fiscal year 2009. The report shall be submitted 
     to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later 
     than 60 days after the enactment of this Act.
       Intelligence oversight.--NSD shall give immediate notice to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations if there 
     are any significant deviations from the current plan to 
     perform 18 National Security Reviews of FBI investigative 
     activity in fiscal year 2009.
       Foreign investment reviews.--NSD is directed to submit a 
     report on the Division's foreign investment review workload 
     and the Division's ability to address this workload in the 
     absence of additional requested resources. The report shall 
     be submitted to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations no later than 60 days after the enactment of 
     this Act.

                      Interagency Law Enforcement


                 INTERAGENCY CRIME AND DRUG ENFORCEMENT

       The bill provides $515,000,000 for the Organized Crime and 
     Drug Enforcement Task Forces, which is $16,581,000 below the 
     budget request.

                    Federal Bureau of Investigation


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The bill provides $7,065,100,000 for the salaries and 
     expenses of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which 
     is equal to the budget request.
       Deployment aircraft.--The funding level provided does not 
     include $20,040,000 that was requested for an emergency 
     deployment aircraft lease. The costs of that lease were 
     funded in P.L. 110-252.
       Pay modernization.--The bill does not include the requested 
     funds for pay modernization because it remains unclear how 
     the Bureau can implement an Intelligence Community-driven 
     evaluation and compensation system within an organization 
     with significant resources outside of the Intelligence 
     Community. Once this and other issues are clarified, requests 
     for this purpose may be resubmitted for consideration in the 
     fiscal year 2010 budget.
       National Security Analysis Center (NSAC).--The budget 
     request included an enhancement of $10,777,000 for NSAC. This 
     funding has not been included in the bill due to two major 
     concerns. First, FBI's written materials relating to NSAC 
     expansion reference plans to engage in controversial 
     ``predictive'' modeling practices that could violate the 
     privacy and civil liberties of law abiding U.S. citizens. 
     Second, the FBI has not completed, or submitted, the planning 
     and implementation documentation necessary to ensure that the 
     NSAC will be responsibly developed and deployed in accordance 
     with policy, schedule and budget requirements.
       If the FBI believes that enhanced NSAC funding is required, 
     those funds may be requested via reprogramming or in a future 
     appropriation request. However, the provision of those funds 
     will be conditioned on the receipt and consideration of the 
     following items: written clarification of NSAC's intentions 
     with respect to the use of ``predictive'' behavior modeling; 
     a detailed spending plan and deployment schedule with dates 
     for key milestones; and completed planning documentation, 
     including an Exhibit 300, an updated System of Records 
     Notice, a Privacy Impact Assessment and a concept of 
     operations or other similar implementation guide.
       Intellectual property enforcement.-- The bill provides an 
     increase of $9,393,000 for additional agents, dedicated 
     solely to investigating criminal intellectual property rights 
     (IPR) cases, in the same localities of the Department's 
     Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property (CHIP) units. The 
     funding level provided will allow the addition of two agents 
     in each of the field offices in the same locality as those 
     CHIP units which the Attorney General has determined most 
     merit assistance in IPR investigations, with no less than 26 
     agents assigned for this purpose.
       The funding level also provides for the creation of an 
     additional and distinct operational unit at FBI Headquarters 
     with at least 5 full-time, permanent agents dedicated to 
     working with the Department of Justice's Computer Crime and 
     Intellectual Property Section solely on complex, multi-
     district and international criminal IPR cases. The agents 
     appropriated for this section shall solely investigate and 
     support the criminal prosecution of violations of federal 
     intellectual property laws, including Title 17 United States 
     Code, sections 506 and 1204; Title 18 U.S. Code, sections 
     1831, 1832, 2318, 2319, 2319A, 2319B, and 2320.
       Mortgage fraud investigations.--The FBI's White Collar 
     Crime program is straining to keep pace with a mortgage fraud 
     caseload that has increased by more than 55 percent since 
     2003. To address this problem, the bill provides an increase 
     of $10,000,000 for the FBI to dedicate additional agents to 
     mortgage fraud investigations and add to existing mortgage 
     fraud task forces and working groups.
       Child exploitation investigations.--The bill provides an 
     increase of $19,000,000 for FBI child exploitation 
     investigations, including an increase of no less than 
     $9,000,000 for the Innocent Images program.
       Foreign human rights violators.--The FBI is directed to 
     increase efforts to investigate and support the criminal 
     prosecution of serious human rights crimes committed by 
     foreign nationals who have found safe haven in the United 
     States. The bill provides an increase of $1,500,000 to 
     support these activities.
       Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division.--
     CJIS is provided $558,000,000, including $307,000,000 in 
     appropriated funds and $251,000,000 in user fees. As in prior 
     years, under no circumstances is the FBI to divert funding 
     collected through CJIS user fees for any purpose other than 
     CJIS, its refreshment plan or a subsequent modernization plan 
     for the current facility.
       Retention and relocation.--The FBI is encouraged to 
     continue working with the FBI Agents Association to 
     ameliorate the impact on affected agents of the FBI's Field 
     Office Supervisory Term Limit policy.

[[Page H1764]]

       Foreign intelligence collection.--The FBI's new tasking to 
     collect non-case related foreign intelligence may dilute the 
     FBI's primary missions and cause coordination problems with 
     other agencies whose missions have always included foreign 
     intelligence activities. The FBI is directed to report to the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 60 days 
     of the enactment of this Act on how the Bureau will engage in 
     foreign intelligence collection without duplicating or 
     conflicting with activities already underway at those other 
     agencies with longstanding foreign intelligence missions.
       Long-term planning.--The FBI has experienced a very high 
     rate of budget growth over the past seven years but seems 
     unable to clearly articulate how much longer this kind of 
     growth is going to be necessary. The ``end-state 
     capabilities'' already submitted by the FBI are too vaguely 
     defined to be used in strategic planning or budgetary 
     decision making. Consequently, the FBI is directed to develop 
     more discrete, quantifiable end-state goals and to submit 
     those goals to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations together with the fiscal year 2010 budget 
     request.
       National Security Letters (NSLs).--There has been little 
     evidence that the FBI has a plan in place to work with third 
     party information providers to educate them about their 
     responsibilities and to reduce the incidence of mistaken 
     productions of content and other information under an NSL. 
     The FBI is directed to report to the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations within 60 days of the enactment 
     of this Act on the steps it is taking to reduce and prevent 
     third party NSL errors.
       Sentinel.--The FBI is expected to inform immediately the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations of any 
     significant deviations from the planned budget or schedule 
     for the Sentinel project.
       FBI Headquarters building.--The J. Edgar Hoover Building is 
     inadequate for the current FBI Headquarters workforce, 
     causing dispersal of FBI staff to over 16 annex offices. The 
     building also lacks adequate setback and other security 
     features, which puts FBI operations and personnel at 
     unacceptable risk. The GAO is directed to review the Hoover 
     Building, and associated off-site locations, and provide an 
     analysis of the FBI's ability to fulfill its mission and 
     security requirements under present conditions. The GAO study 
     should also assess the benefits of a consolidated 
     headquarters facility.
       Work force distribution.--The FBI was extremely tardy in 
     submitting a workforce study required by the statement 
     accompanying P.L. 110-161. The FBI is directed to take all 
     necessary steps to ensure that such tardiness does not recur 
     with this year's reporting requirements.
       Achieving the proper distribution of staff to field offices 
     around the country remains a concern. As the FBI considers 
     the distribution of agents received in this appropriation, 
     the Bureau is encouraged to consider the allocation of agents 
     to locations that would alleviate any unjustified disparities 
     in the number of personnel among offices.


                              CONSTRUCTION

       The bill provides $153,491,000, which is $110,500,000 above 
     the budget request.
       Program increases.--Within funds provided, $9,800,000 is 
     for improvements at the FBI Academy and $41,000,000 is for 
     the Terrorist Explosives Device Analytical Center.

                    Drug Enforcement Administration


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The bill provides $1,939,084,000 for the Drug Enforcement 
     Administration (DEA), which is $2,500,000 above the budget 
     request.
       Drug Flow Attack Strategy (DFAS).-- The bill fully supports 
     the DFAS request, with the exception of funds to purchase a 
     helicopter. Funding for that purpose was provided in P.L. 
     110-252.
       Diversion control program.--Full funding of $244,450,000 is 
     provided for the Diversion Control program, which is fully 
     offset with fee collections. This funding level includes an 
     increase of $498,000 for the Diversion Control portion of 
     DFAS.
       Mobile Enforcement Teams (MET).--The bill provides an 
     increase of $10,000,000 to allow DEA to begin rebuilding the 
     MET program, both through the establishment of additional 
     teams and by increasing the funds available for existing 
     teams. The activities of MET should continue to include a 
     focus on methamphetamine enforcement.
       Drugs on public lands.--DEA is urged to work with Federal 
     land management agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service 
     and National Park Service, and State and local law 
     enforcement partners to aggressively and permanently 
     eradicate marijuana and other drug operations on public 
     lands. DEA is also strongly urged to increase the resources 
     provided to investigate, apprehend and prosecute drug 
     trafficking on public lands and to target those resources to 
     areas with the highest concentration of trafficking activity.

          Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The bill provides $1,054,215,000 for the Bureau of Alcohol, 
     Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), which is $26,401,000 
     above the budget request.
       Program increases.--The bill provides a total increase over 
     the budget request of $26,401,000, of which no less than 
     $200,000 is for the hiring of additional regulation writers 
     to address ATF's pending regulatory backlog and no less than 
     $5,000,000 is for Project Gunrunner and other firearms 
     trafficking efforts targeting Mexico and the border region. 
     Project Gunrunner has been an effective tool in combating 
     anti-smuggling efforts along the Southwest border, and ATF is 
     encouraged to make sure that sufficient resources are 
     allocated to this important program.
       Ballistics imaging and identification.--High-tech 
     ballistics imaging and identification capabilities are very 
     valuable and have been improved over time by significant 
     investments on the part of State and local law enforcement 
     partners in building the current data base. ATF is encouraged 
     to ensure that ballistic imaging technology is routinely 
     refreshed, upgraded and deployed to those State and local 
     partners. Further, ATF is expected to ensure that upgrades 
     and replacements for ballistic imaging technology take into 
     account the resources already invested by those State and 
     local partners.
       Conversion of records.--ATF is urged to complete the 
     conversion of tens of thousands of existing Federal firearms 
     dealer out-of-business records from film to digital images at 
     the ATF National Tracing Center.
       Disposition of historical documents.--ATF is currently in 
     possession of a letter signed by Alexander Hamilton on 
     December 18, 1790. This letter reflects Hamilton's efforts to 
     pay down Revolutionary War debt through the imposition of 
     duties on distilled liquor. ATF is directed to provide 
     immediately this letter to the National Archives and Records 
     Administration for historical preservation and study.
       Canine transport conditions.--ATF headquarters' recent 
     decision to shrink the size of the vehicles used by the 34 
     ATF explosive detection canine teams as a cost-savings 
     mechanism is both disappointing and shortsighted. DOJ spends, 
     at a minimum, $20,000 to train these assets, which are housed 
     in agent vehicles while on deployment and while working to 
     ensure public safety. The canines require reasonable 
     comfortable space to not only work, but also to rest if they 
     are to be effective when called upon to perform. ATF shall 
     only purchase vehicles for explosive detection canine teams 
     that provide no less usable space for the dog than the 
     vehicles they are meant to replace. ATF shall submit a report 
     to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 30 days 
     after enactment of this Act certifying that this directive is 
     being met.

                         Federal Prison System


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The bill provides $5,595,754,000 for the salaries and 
     expenses of the Federal Prison System for fiscal year 2009, 
     which is an increase of $160,000,000 above the budget 
     request.
       Several years of insufficient budget requests have led to a 
     critical juncture for the Federal Prison System--in terms of 
     safety and security for inmates and staff. The additional 
     funds are provided to support adequate correctional staffing 
     levels and to address shortfalls in inmate programs. Within 
     30 days of enactment of this Act, the Department is directed 
     to submit a spend plan to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations, with a proposed distribution of funds across 
     the four Bureau of Prisons (BOP) decision units and which 
     specifically details the allocation of the $160,000,000 
     funding increase. Further, the Government Accountability 
     Office (GAO) is directed to review BOP's methods for 
     determining resource requirements, including pricing of 
     fixed costs such as utilities and medical care, as well as 
     estimates of the inmate population. The GAO should make 
     recommendations to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations on steps BOP should take to develop more 
     accurate projections of funding requirements no later than 
     August 31, 2009.
       Substance abuse treatment.--Forty percent of inmates 
     entering Federal prisons have a drug use disorder and require 
     residential drug abuse treatment. Despite the Violent Crime 
     Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which requires such 
     treatment to be provided, an estimated 8,000 eligible inmates 
     were put on the waiting list during fiscal year 2008. The 
     fiscal year 2009 budget request did not address this 
     shortfall. Within amounts appropriated, $79,200,000 is made 
     available to provide residential and transitional drug abuse 
     treatment for all eligible inmates.
       Inmate education, training and prisoner re-entry.--Within 
     amounts appropriated, $138,000,000 is provided to reduce the 
     backlog of inmates waiting to participate in education, 
     vocational training and prisoner re-entry programs, which are 
     cost effective tools in reducing the societal impacts of 
     criminal recidivism.
       Reimbursement for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement 
     (ICE) detainees.--The Attorney General is directed to work 
     with the Department of Homeland Security to transfer 
     expeditiously the estimated 700 ICE detainees who are 
     currently housed in the Federal Prison System, or to obtain 
     prompt and fair reimbursement from ICE for the costs of 
     incarcerating them. The Attorney General is further directed 
     to report to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations not later than 60 days after enactment of this 
     Act on actions taken to comply with this direction. In 
     addition, the Attorney General is directed, on a quarterly 
     basis, to report to the Committees on the costs incurred by 
     BOP and the reimbursements received for housing ICE detainees 
     and inmates of other Federal and State agencies.

[[Page H1765]]

       Staffing levels and staff-inmate ratios.--On a monthly 
     basis, the BOP is directed to notify the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations of current correctional officer 
     staffing levels, by facility, and of the staff-inmate ratios 
     for all Federal prisons.
       National Institute of Corrections (NIC).--The budget 
     proposal to eliminate funding for the NIC is rejected. The 
     NIC provides valuable training and services, including 
     research and evaluation, technical assistance, information 
     sharing and planning to State and local adult corrections 
     agencies, the BOP and other Federal agencies. The Department 
     is encouraged to submit a reprogramming request if sufficient 
     funds are not available within BOP for this effort. To 
     address deficiencies in corrections reporting identified by 
     the U.S. Census Bureau, the NIC is encouraged to work with 
     State corrections agencies to develop better procedures and 
     systems for collecting and maintaining corrections records.
       Inmate medical care.--The BOP is currently experiencing a 
     shortage of dentists, which is expected to worsen due to 
     retirements and retention difficulties. BOP is directed to 
     report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
     by February 19, 2009, on its current and projected dentist 
     staffing needs and its plans to address this situation.
       Prevention of sexual misconduct.--The BOP is to be 
     commended for its work to address and prevent sexual 
     misconduct. With funds provided in previous years, the NIC 
     has made meaningful progress in providing training and 
     technical support to correctional systems throughout the 
     country to eliminate staff sexual misconduct with inmates, 
     provide training in investigating cases, and training the 
     ``trainers'' in order that employees at every level will be 
     more aware of, and better prepared to deal with, these cases. 
     The BOP is directed to continue these efforts and to report 
     to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by March 
     31, 2009, on progress made in this area.
       Contracting out.--The bill includes a general provision to 
     prohibit the use of funds to conduct, process or approve a 
     public-private competition under OMB Circular A-76 for 
     personnel who are employees of the BOP or of Federal Prison 
     Industries, Incorporated. This provision does not prevent BOP 
     from meeting additional bed space needs using State, local, 
     and private existing and new prison capacity.
       Activations and expansions.--The BOP is expected to adhere 
     to the activation schedule included in its budget submission, 
     and shall notify the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations of any deviations to that schedule.


                        BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES

       The bill provides $575,807,000 for the construction, 
     modernization, maintenance, and repair of prison and 
     detention facilities housing Federal inmates. Within this 
     amount, $440,000,000 is provided for new prison construction 
     and $110,627,000 is provided to address the significant 
     backlog of major health and safety repairs in Federal prison 
     facilities. The BOP is directed to provide quarterly reports 
     to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on its 
     backlog of maintenance and repairs, and its schedule for 
     addressing them.
       Female inmate facilities.--Additional capacity for female 
     inmates at new facilities will significantly reduce crowding 
     in this population, thereby enhancing safety and security.
       Within funds provided, the BOP is expected to begin site 
     selection and development, environmental assessment and 
     feasibility, planning, and initial design work to build an 
     FCI in Leavenworth, Kansas.
       Reprogramming limitation.--The bill includes language 
     directing that BOP may not transfer ``Buildings and 
     Facilities'' appropriations to cover ``Salaries and 
     Expenses'' costs unless the President certifies that such a 
     transfer is necessary to the national security interest of 
     the United States, and also subjects any such transfer to 
     section 505 of this Act.


   LIMITATION ON ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES, FEDERAL PRISON INDUSTRIES, 
                              INCORPORATED

       The bill provides a limitation on administrative expenses 
     of $2,328,000 for Federal Prison Industries, Incorporated. 
     Those who are repaying their debts to society should be 
     provided opportunities to prepare themselves to re-enter 
     society as gainfully employed citizens. The Department is 
     expected to continue to offer meaningful work opportunities 
     to inmates while respecting the interests of small and 
     medium-sized businesses.

     sexual assault and domestic violence. These funds may also be 
     distributed to nonprofit entities that provide services, such 
     as a crisis hotline, services to victims of sexual assault or 
     domestic violence in rural areas, and medical assistance to 
     victims.
       Salaries and expenses.--The bill establishes a new salaries 
     and expenses account to fund the management and 
     administrative costs of OVW and other Justice Department

       Office of Justice Programs (OJP) budgetary and programmatic 
     transparency.--The OJP is directed to provide detailed 
     personnel, contract and other cost information, by program, 
     for Management and Administration and Office of Audit, 
     Assessment, and Management (OAAM) activities in its fiscal 
     year 2010 budget justifications.
       Fairness and objectivity in the award of competitive 
     grants.--Allegations have been leveled that the Department 
     steered fiscal year 2007 juvenile justice grants to favored 
     recipients instead of awarding them to deserving grantees who 
     ranked more highly in a peer-reviewed process. The Department 
     is directed to report to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations within 30 days of enactment of this Act, on 
     the findings of its internal review of the 2007 grants 
     process and awards, including corrective actions taken. The 
     Inspector General is also directed to conduct an independent 
     review of this 2007 grant award process and report 
     expeditiously to the same Committees.
       Transparency in research decisions.-- The OJP is expected 
     to improve transparency in research funding decisions, and is 
     directed, within 60 days of enactment and prior to obligation 
     of any funds, to provide a detailed report and spend plan on 
     all National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and the Bureau of 
     Justice Statistics (BJS) research activities, including their 
     funding sources. The Department is also expected to produce 
     detailed justification information on the research priorities 
     assumed in the fiscal year 2010 budget request.
       National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS).--Within funds 
     provided for BJS, $26,000,000 is made available for the NCVS, 
     which since the 1970s has been a critical resource to improve 
     the understanding of the costs and context of crime 
     victimization in the United States. To improve the usefulness 
     of the NCVS, BJS is urged to implement the recommendations of 
     the National Research Council's recent report, Surveying 
     Victims:

[[Page H1766]]

     Options for Conducting the National Crime Victimization 
     Survey. NIJ is also encouraged to implement the Council's 
     recommendation to develop, promote and coordinate sub-
     national victimization surveys.
       NIJ sole-source contracts.--The Attorney General is 
     directed to submit to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations, within 90 days of enactment of this Act, a 
     plan that establishes competitive processes, criteria, and 
     oversight measures to ensure that NIJ awards for studies, 
     seminars and other activities are conducted in a fair, 
     objective and ethical manner.
       Regional Information Sharing System (RISS).--Within amounts 
     provided for RISS, funds shall be available to continue 
     funding existing local-to-local law enforcement data and 
     information sharing programs focused on solving routine 
     crimes, especially in rural areas, by sharing law enforcement 
     information not categorized as criminal intelligence by the 
     owning law enforcement agency.
       DNA and forensics.--Within funds appropriated for NIJ, 
     $3,000,000 is for DNA and forensics research, of which 
     $500,000 shall be transferred to the National Institute of 
     Standards and Technology Office of Law Enforcement Standards 
     to support the development of standards for quality and 
     proficiency in Federal, State and local crime laboratories.
       Forensic science education.--Based on findings of a 
     Department panel on forensic science education, the NIJ 
     established the Forensic Science Education Program 
     Accreditation Commission. However, no Federal link has yet 
     been established between the Department and the Commission to 
     implement the recommended universal standards. Within 60 days 
     of enactment of this Act, the NIJ is directed to report to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the 
     actions taken to implement recommended standards.
       Victim notification.--The bill provides $12,000,000 for the 
     Bureau of Justice Assistance to continue the State Automated 
     Victim Notification grant program to allow States to join the 
     National Victim Notification Network. No funding may be 
     utilized from within the Victims Assistance Program for this 
     initiative and funds provided under this heading shall 
     require a 50 percent match from State, local, and private 
     sources.
       Pregnant and parenting offenders.--The NIJ is encouraged to 
     examine the potential of family-based treatment as an 
     effective sentencing alternative for non-violent drug 
     offenders who are pregnant or the parents of minor children.
       Salaries and expenses.--The bill establishes a new salaries 
     and expenses account to fund the management and 
     administrative costs of OJP and other Justice Department 
     grant programs. No administrative overhead costs shall be 
     deducted from the programs funded from this account.


               STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSISTANCE

       Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program 
     (JAG).--The bill provides $546,000,000 for JAG formula 
     grants. Funding under this program is authorized for law 
     enforcement programs; prosecution and court programs; 
     prevention and education programs; corrections and community 
     corrections programs; drug treatment and enforcement 
     programs; planning, evaluation, and technology improvement 
     programs; and crime victim and witness programs, other than 
     compensation. Funding is not available for vehicles, vessels, 
     or aircraft; luxury items; real estate; or construction 
     projects. Of the amount provided, $2,000,000 is for 
     intelligence training for State and local law enforcement 
     entities; and $5,000,000 is for the National Institute of 
     Justice to help local units of government to identify, 
     select, develop, modernize and purchase new technologies for 
     use by law enforcement.
       Within the funds provided, $7,000,000 shall be available to 
     reimburse State and local law enforcement for security and 
     related costs, including overtime, associated with the 
     security requirements required to protect the President-elect 
     during the Presidential transition period. These funds shall 
     be allocated by the Department of Justice to State and local 
     law enforcement entities that can document increased costs 
     over and above normal law enforcement operations, which are 
     directly attributable to security for the President-elect. 
     Within the funds provided, $20,000,000 is also included to 
     reimburse State and local governments for security and other 
     expenses related to the 2009 Presidential Inauguration. Not 
     later than 30 days after enactment of this Act, the 
     Department is directed to provide a report and spend plan to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations, which 
     details the criteria and methodology that will be used to 
     award these grants.
       Byrne competitive grants.--$30,000,000 is made available 
     for Byrne competitive, peer-reviewed grants to programs of 
     national significance to prevent crime, improve the 
     administration of justice or assist victims of crime. Within 
     90 days of enactment of this Act, the OJP is directed to 
     provide a report and spend plan to the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations, which details the criteria and 
     methodology that will be used to award these grants. It is 
     expected that national programs that have previously received 
     funding under the Byrne discretionary program will be 
     eligible to compete for funding under this competitive grant 
     program, including programs for which specific amounts are 
     designated in this Act.
       Byrne discretionary grants.--The bill provides $178,500,000 
     for Byrne discretionary grants to prevent crime, to improve 
     the criminal justice system, to provide victims' services and 
     for other similar activities. The accompanying table details 
     funding for Congressionally-designated activities, which are 
     incorporated by reference in the bill:

       Justice for All Act--capital litigation and wrongful 
     prosecution review.--The bill provides $5,500,000 for capital 
     litigation and wrongful prosecution review grants. Of this 
     amount, $2,500,000 is for Capital Litigation Improvement 
     Grants, authorized by section 426 of Public Law 108-405. In 
     addition, $3,000,000 is made available for a new program of 
     competitive grants to public and non-profit entities that

     proposal. These existing OJP and COPS programs are critical 
     to implementing the public safety and justice priorities of 
     tribal leaders throughout Indian Country. Further, it is 
     unacceptable that the Department failed, in 2008, to complete 
     a review and report to the House and Senate Appropriations 
     Committees on the state of existing tribal detention 
     facilities and the need for new capacity. By May 15, 2009, 
     the Department is directed to complete this review and to

     including recommendations and actions that have or will be 
     taken to address these needs.

     includes $7,000,000 for the Prescription Drug Monitoring

     assistance and training on establishing and operating 
     effective prescription drug monitoring programs. The OJP is 
     expected to work with the DEA to implement this program.
       Prison rape prevention and prosecution.--The bill includes 
     $12,500,000 for prison rape prevention and prosecution 
     activities. The Attorney General is required to promulgate 
     national standards for the prevention of and response to

     recommendations of the National Prison Rape Elimination 
     Commission. These funds are provided for purposes authorized 
     under Public Law 108-79, such as the work of the Commission; 
     mandated statistics, data and research; prevention and 
     prosecution assistance; and grants to protect inmates and 
     safeguard communities. The Department shall report to the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations not later than 
     90 days after the enactment of this Act on the proposed 
     distribution of funding among authorized activities under 
     this program.

     provides $18,000,000 for competitive grants to support and 
     train State and local law enforcement agencies in the

     Bureau of Justice Assistance. Within funds provided, up to 
     $3,000,000 is available for new competitive grants to State

     the status of the National Motor Vehicle Title Information 
     System program, and its recommendations to achieve 
     implementation.
       SEARCH National Technical Assistance and Training 
     Program.--The Department is encouraged to support efforts to 
     assist States in the development and use of information 
     through criminal justice information systems to accelerate 
     the automation of their fingerprints identification processes 
     and criminal justice data identification processes so that 
     State and local law enforcement which are compatible with the 
     FBI's Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System.
       Salaries and expenses.--The bill establishes a new salaries

     which $14,000,000 is for the Office on Violence Against Women 
     (OVW); $130,000,000 is for the Office of Justice Programs 
     (OJP); and $30,000,000 is for the Community Oriented Policing 
     Services Office (COPS). In addition, $21,000,000 is made 
     available for the Office of Audit, Assessment, and Management 
     (OAAM) for grants management oversight. The total amount 
     available for management and administration of such programs 
     shall not exceed $195,000,000. Within funds provided, OAAM is 
     expected to develop its capacity to evaluate, in coordination 
     with the National Institute of Justice, the effectiveness of 
     programs and projects funded by OJP, OVW and the COPS Office,

                             AGENCY SUMMARY

       Reporting of cost, schedule and content for NASA research 
     and development projects.--To better understand the 
     underlying issues common to NASA's performance on major 
     projects and to develop a process for identifying corrective 
     action, the Fiscal Year 2008 Consolidated Appropriations Act 
     mandated the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to report 
     on the status of large-scale NASA

[[Page H1825]]

     programs, projects and activities. This report is to be 
     delivered to the Congress semiannually, the first of which 
     shall be delivered in advance of the annual budget submission 
     of the President for fiscal year 2010. To that end, NASA is 
     directed to cooperate fully and to provide timely program 
     analysis, evaluation data and relevant information to the GAO 
     so that it can conduct this review and meet the annual 
     Congressional mandate. Such information includes, but is not 
     limited to, copies of preliminary cost estimates, access to 
     relevant online agency applications, databases, and web 
     portals, and access to information from contractor and agency 
     personnel.
       Breach reporting.--Pursuant to section 103 of Public Law 
     109-155, the NASA Authorization Act of 2005, NASA is required 
     to deliver several reports to the appropriate authorizing 
     committees when project costs grow in excess of certain 
     thresholds. NASA shall submit concurrently to the House and 
     Senate Committee on Appropriations the reports required by 
     section 103 of Public Law 109-155.
       Space Shuttle transition and retirement costs.--To ensure 
     the Congress has a complete accounting of the full costs 
     associated with Space Shuttle transition and retirement, NASA 
     is directed to develop an estimate to include:
       (1) not only those funds necessary within the Space Shuttle 
     program, but all funds needed outside the Space Shuttle 
     program that are necessary to support Space Shuttle 
     transition and retirement activities;
       (2) funds necessary under Cross Agency Support needed to 
     support transition and retirement, including environmental 
     compliance and remediation, of the Space Shuttle program;
       (3) the gross and net proceeds from exchange sales of 
     excess Space Shuttle equipment;
       (4) the costs to maintain required facilities at Kennedy 
     Space Center during the gap in human spaceflight;
       (5) the costs associated with preservation of historic 
     properties; and
       (6) the costs of workforce transition.
       Accordingly, the bill includes a provision that requires 
     NASA to provide by February 2, 2009, to the Committees on 
     Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives 
     a report detailing the total and annual costs by fiscal year 
     of Space Shuttle transition and retirement costs. Such data 
     shall be presented for fiscal years 2006 through 2015 by 
     mission directorate, program, activity and object class.
       Public availability of scientific information.--NASA is 
     directed to implement all recommendations by the Inspector 
     General related to its review of public availability of 
     scientific information and to report to the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations not later than March 2, 2009.
       Contract oversight and management.--NASA is directed to 
     incorporate independent cost verification as part of the 
     process by which contracts are selected and monitored. NASA 
     is to report to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations within 60 days of enactment of the Act of its 
     plans and progress in implementing this directive.
       NASA is further directed to notify the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations in writing 30 days prior to 
     allocating funds, or modifying or extending existing 
     contracts that are in excess of 15 percent of the original 
     contract value.
       Within 45 days of enactment of this Act, NASA shall provide 
     a report delineating the original baseline amount and 
     schedule for each program with a life cycle cost of 
     $100,000,000 or more. The report shall also include the 
     current baseline amount, confidence level and financial and 
     delivery schedule for each such program.
       Reprogramming procedures.--The levels against which 
     reprogrammings are to be reported require further 
     clarification. Accordingly, a summary table by mission 
     directorate delineates each program, project and activity 
     against which the reprogramming thresholds are to be 
     measured. This display in no way curtails NASA's current 
     flexibility in managing its diverse portfolio of research and 
     development and operational programs. Rather, it will require 
     NASA to inform the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations of any deviations, subject to the thresholds 
     specified in section 505 of this Act, from the levels 
     explicit in the agency's budget justification, as adjusted 
     for congressional action, as shown in the accompanying 
     summary table. In any reprogramming request and operating 
     plan, NASA shall include the out-year budget and schedule 
     impacts of the proposed reallocation of funds.
       For purposes of the reprogramming guidelines, a new program 
     shall be defined as any program, project or activity for 
     which funds were not requested or provided in the current 
     fiscal year, except those resulting from a competitive 
     selection made pursuant to ongoing programs authorized by 
     Congress. However, implementation of this limitation shall 
     preclude initiation or resumption of activities pursuant to 
     competitive solicitations for ongoing NASA programs if 
     funding for that specific program, project or activity had 
     been previously deferred due to lack of funds and/or were 
     unrequested in the current fiscal year.
       Financial data disclosure.--NASA shall include the out-year 
     budget and schedule impacts in any reprogramming request, 
     operating plan, and budget submission. In addition, NASA 
     shall include a separate accounting of all program reserves 
     and carryover funds by program, project and activity.
       The funding provided for NASA is delineated more fully in 
     the table below and in the account summaries.

                                SCIENCE

       The bill provides $4,503,019,000 for science, an increase 
     of $61,500,000 over the budget request. The amount provided 
     reflects an unallocated adjustment of $70,898,000 and 
     reflects unobligated balances carried into fiscal year 2009 
     from fiscal year 2008. NASA shall within 30 days of enactment 
     of this Act provide to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations its proposed distribution of the unallocated 
     adjustment. In doing so, NASA shall identify offsets that do 
     not result in delays or cancellations of missions in 
     development or the cancellation of any selected projects, and 
     shall not identify as offsets any increases provided above 
     the request expressly provided by Congress.
       Earth science.--NASA's Earth science portfolio shall have a 
     continuous mixture of small-, medium-, and observatory class 
     Earth science missions that guarantee regular and recurring 
     flight opportunities for the Earth science communities.
       Earth decadal survey missions.--A total of $150,000,000 is 
     provided for Earth decadal survey missions. Funds are 
     provided to support on-going activities of the ICESat II and 
     SMAP missions. In addition, funds are provided to accelerate 
     and achieve a level of system development more consistent 
     with the National Academy of Sciences' recommendations. The 
     bill provides funds to accelerate the ICESat II mission so 
     that it will be ready to launch in 2013 concurrently with the 
     SMAP mission, consistent with the National Academy of 
     Sciences' recommendations.
       Landsat data continuity mission (LDCM).--Funding of 
     $10,000,000 is provided to initiate development of a thermal 
     infra-red sensor (TSIS). NASA is directed to identify the 
     earliest and least expensive development approach and flight 
     opportunity for TSIS. NASA shall report its findings to the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations not later than 
     March 2, 2009.
       NASA is further directed to develop, in cooperation with 
     the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the 
     U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), a plan for a follow-on mission 
     to LDCM consistent with the recommendations of the National 
     Science and Technology Council's report, A Plan for A U.S. 
     National Land Imaging Program. This plan is due to the House 
     and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than August 
     31, 2009.
       Earth science applications program.--The bill provides 
     $10,000,000 over the budget request for Earth science 
     applications under the Research Opportunities in Space and 
     Earth Sciences (ROSES) program, which shall be available to 
     support new competitively-selected projects under subsection 
     A.28, Earth Science For Decision Making: Gulf of Mexico 
     Region, to be selected during fiscal year 2009.
       Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR). The bill provides 
     $9,000,000 for NASA to refurbish and ensure flight and 
     operational readiness of DSCOVR earth science instruments.
       Servicing Opportunities for Science Missions. Recognizing 
     the historic successes NASA has achieved through the 
     servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope, the National 
     Research Council's recent report Launching Science: Science 
     Opportunities Provided by NASA's Constellation System 
     recommends that ``NASA should study the benefits of designing 
     spacecraft intended to operate around Earth or the Moon, or 
     at the libration points for human and robotic servicing.'' 
     This recommendation parallels the guidance provided by 
     section 502 of the NASA Authorization Act of 2008 (P.L. 110-
     422), which recommends that provision be made for servicing 
     of future scientific spacecraft to the extent practicable. 
     Therefore, it will be critical that the Constellation program 
     demonstrate unique capabilities to maintain synergies between 
     free-flying scientific spacecraft and human spaceflight 
     endeavors. Accordingly, the bill provides $20,000,000 for 
     NASA to undertake an assessment of the feasibility of using 
     the Constellation architecture to service existing and future 
     observatory-class scientific spacecraft, fully utilizing the 
     unique, core expertise and competencies for in-space 
     servicing developed by the Goddard Space Flight Center and 
     its private sector partners for the Hubble Space Telescope. 
     NASA shall provide to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations a plan for expenditure of this funding no 
     later than 30 days after enactment of this Act.
       Lunar landers.--The bill provides, as requested, 
     $10,000,000 for the selected lunar lander.
       Mars exploration.--NASA shall continue to engage the Mars 
     community to define missions for the next decade that will 
     lead to a Mars sample return in the 2020s. NASA is encouraged 
     to define a budget profile for the Mars exploration program 
     to support a lander mission and follow-on missions through 
     2020; consider augmenting technology to be demonstrated as 
     part of the 2013 Scout; and support the small, competitively-
     selected missions such as Mars Scouts.
       Mars science laboratory (MSL).--The bill provides the 
     budget request of $223,331,000 for MSL. Over the past several 
     months, NASA, with the concurrence of the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations, has taken reprogramming actions 
     to address continuing project cost increases and to maintain 
     a launch schedule in 2009; however, slower-than-expected 
     progress, combined with late completion and deliveries of 
     hardware, has contributed to deterioration in schedule 
     performance. As a result, NASA has informed the House and 
     Senate Committees on Appropriations on December 4, 2008, of 
     its decision to delay a 2009 launch. The relative orbital 
     location of Mars and Earth dictates that the next launch 
     opportunity is 2011. However, in order to support a 2011 
     launch, NASA will need to identify additional resources in 
     the range of $400,000,000. NASA is directed to provide to the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations not later than 
     February 2, 2009, the impact on the project's baseline 
     development cost estimate consistent with reporting 
     requirements of section 103 of the NASA Authorization Act of 
     2005 (Public Law 109-155); and proposed resource allocations 
     necessary to meet a 2011 launch. A reallocation of this 
     magnitude can be expected to have significant impacts on 
     other projects, and accordingly, NASA is directed to consult 
     with the space science community to ensure its views are 
     taken into consideration in any decision regarding future 
     funding for MSL.
       Outer planets.--NASA plans to conduct an outer planet 
     flagship mission in cooperation with the European community, 
     which a launch as soon as practicable. A more detailed plan 
     and projected launch date shall be part of the fiscal year 
     2010 budget. The bill includes $101,089,000 for the outer 
     planets program, as requested.
       Hubble Space Telescope.--The bill provides the full 
     requirement of $207,697,000 for the operations and upcoming 
     servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope.
       Astrophysics exoplanet exploration, other missions and data 
     analysis.--An increase of $20,000,000 is provided to continue 
     NASA's efforts in assessing lower cost versions of the Space 
     Interferometry Mission (SIM) and in completing the detailed 
     formulation phase of a ``SIM-Lite'' mission that would meet 
     the requirements laid out in the most recent decadal surveys 
     for an astrophysics mission.
       Radiation Belt Storm Probes.--The bill provides the full 
     budget request of $154,442,000 to continue this mission for 
     launch in 2012.
       Solar Probe.--The bill includes $18,000,000 for the Solar 
     Probe mission, the highest priority recommendation of the 
     National Academies' heliophysics decadal report. NASA is 
     directed to work to achieve a launch no later than 2015.
       Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission.--The bill includes the 
     budget request of $94,582,000 for the Magnetospheric 
     Multiscale Mission. NASA is directed to undertake no action 
     to de-scope or reduce the project's scientific instruments or 
     capacity.
       Wallops Flight Facility (WFF).--The WFF is an important 
     national asset that can be better utilized by focusing on 
     emerging technologies that meet national needs and NASA 
     priorities. The bill therefore provides programmatic 
     increases of: $5,000,000 for advanced technology development 
     of small satellites and unmanned aerial systems (UAS) that 
     have the potential of lowering the costs of space and Earth 
     science missions consistent with the goals of venture class 
     missions recommended by the National Academies' Earth science 
     decadal report; and $14,000,000 to improve launch pad 
     infrastructure. NASA is directed to prepare a five-year 
     action plan, including a proposed funding forecast, that 
     identifies specific program and advanced technology 
     development work that will utilize and expand the Wallops 
     Flight Facility's role in the development of small 
     satellites and unmanned aerial systems to meet critical 
     earth science and other space system needs. This plan is 
     due to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
     by June 1, 2009.
       Ocean vector wind study.--NASA, working with NOAA and 
     within the funds provided, shall study satellite and non-
     satellite alternatives for generating SeaWinds-like ocean 
     wind data.


                              AERONAUTICS

       The bill provides $500,000,000 for aeronautics research. 
     The research and development activities undertaken with the 
     augmentation shall not be based on the determination that the 
     investment in an activity would result in a useable or useful 
     product based only on one year's funding. Accordingly, the 
     Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate is directed to 
     provide to the Committees on Appropriations of the House and 
     Senate in NASA's initial fiscal year 2009 operating plan a 
     proposed expenditure analysis of the congressional 
     augmentation to ensure that this investment of funds is 
     devoted to long-term, multi-year research and development 
     activities to support NextGen technology needs and solutions 
     and ``green'' aircraft.


                              EXPLORATION

       The bill provides $3,505,469,000 for exploration for fiscal 
     year 2009, $5,000,000 over the budget request. The amount 
     provided includes an unallocated adjustment of $18,000,000. 
     NASA shall within 30 days of enactment of this Act provide to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations its 
     proposed distribution of the unallocated adjustment. In doing 
     so, NASA shall identify offsets that do not result in delays 
     or cancellations of missions in development or the 
     cancellation of any selected projects, and shall not identify 
     as offsets any increases provided above the request expressly 
     provided by Congress.
       Constellation systems.--The bill includes the budget 
     request of $1,018,515,000 for Ares and $1,101,436,000 for 
     Orion.
       Constellation systems program, heavy lift cargo vehicle.--
     The bill includes $23,000,000 above the request for Ares V 
     design requirements definition and research and development 
     for a systems requirement review.

[[Page H1832]]

       International Space Station (ISS) research.--The bill 
     provides $44,783,000 for ISS research and will support the 
     study of life and physical sciences phenomenon in 
     microgravity, as well as the partial gravity environments of 
     the Moon and Mars.
       Commercial orbital transportation services (COTS).--For 
     fiscal year 2009, the bill provides $153,045,000 for COTS 
     program elements A through C, a reduction of $20,000,000 from 
     the request. The reduction is taken without prejudice to the 
     program, and is based on NASA's estimated expenditures for 
     fiscal year 2009 while accounting for program management 
     costs and anticipated payments to industry partners who 
     successfully meet milestones in current Space Act agreements.
       Lunar precursor robotic program (LPRP) management.--The 
     bill includes the budget request of $56,334,000 for the LPRP.


                            SPACE OPERATIONS

       The bill provides $5,764,710,000 for space operations for 
     fiscal year 2009. The bill designates specific amounts for 
     Space Shuttle operations, production, research, development 
     and support; International Space Station operations, 
     production, research, development and support; and Space 
     Flight Support operations, production, research, development 
     and support.
       Space Shuttle retirement and transition.--NASA, within 90 
     days of enactment of this Act, shall submit a plan that seeks 
     to maximize utilization of all facilities, as well as 
     partnerships with other Federal agencies to maintain NASA's 
     skilled workforce.
       Science experiments in microgravity.--To ensure immediate 
     access of these types of experiments, NASA shall submit to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by March 2, 
     2009, a plan to ensure access of science experiments to a 
     microgravity environment.
       Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer.--NASA is directed not to take 
     any action to preclude delivery of the Alpha Magnetic 
     Spectrometer (AMS) to the International Space Station prior 
     to 18 months preceding the anticipated retirement of the 
     Space Shuttle in 2010. Should funds be necessary to preserve 
     flight options in fiscal year 2009, NASA may reprogram funds 
     pursuant to the authorities contained in section 505 of this 
     Act.
       Launch services.--The bill provides $10,000,000 less than 
     requested for launch services. Since the agency has yet to 
     make a final determination of the allocation or phasing of 
     the use of the requested increase, funding to mitigate the 
     out-year costs of launch infrastructure and repairs has been 
     deferred.


                               EDUCATION

       The bill provides $169,200,000 for education for fiscal 
     year 2009.
       NASA Space Grants.--For this program, the bill provides a 
     total of $40,000,000, which will fund 40 states or 
     jurisdictions at $815,000 each and 12 states or jurisdictions 
     at $615,000 each. Not more than $1,000,000 shall be retained 
     for program administration.
       NASA visitor centers.--Funds provided for NASA visitor 
     centers are to be distributed in equal increments to each 
     center's visitor centers for the development of educational 
     activities.


                          CROSS AGENCY SUPPORT

       The bill provides $3,306,387,000 for cross agency support 
     for fiscal year 2009. Within the funds provided, not more 
     than $2,033,000,000 shall be available for center management 
     and operations, of which $2,024,000,000 is provided as direct 
     appropriations and not more than $9,000,000 is to be derived 
     from enhanced use lease receipts pursuant to 42 USC 2549j. In 
     addition, the bill provides not more than $70,000 shall be 
     available for official reception and representation expenses. 
     For independent verification and validation (IVV) activities, 
     the bill provides not less than $45,000,000, of which 
     $5,000,000 shall be available for the development of IVV 
     tools in the small business community. Funds provided herein 
     for the IVV facility and its activities shall be in addition 
     to funds allocated by the Office of Safety and Mission 
     Assurance for the safety assurance research program.
       Congressionally-directed projects.--The bill includes a 
     provision that provides that $67,500,000 of the amounts 
     provided under this heading shall be available for the 
     projects, and in the amounts, specified in the table below. 
     NASA shall refrain from charging administrative costs to 
     these grants, and shall provide appropriate management and 
     oversight of each grant.

       Institutional investments.--A total of $293,665,000 is 
     provided for institutional investments, of which $218,901,000 
     shall be available for institutional construction of 
     facilities (ICF). Within the funds provided for ICF, not more 
     than $13,700,000 shall be available for facility planning and 
     design. In addition, the amounts requested for minor 
     revitalization of facilities at various locations (less than 
     $500,000) are reduced by $4,850,000 to fully resource the 
     repair and construction of the consolidated information 
     technology center Dryden Flight Research Center (DFRC). This 
     transfer reflects NASA's planned execution of repair and 
     construction at DFRC in fiscal year 2009. Lastly, the amount 
     requested for programmatic discrete projects is reduced by 
     $5,000,000. NASA shall in its initial operating plan 
     delineate by project its proposed allocation of the resources 
     provided herein.
       Mississippi Army Ammunition Plant (MSAAP) and Stennis Space 
     Center (SSC).--NASA shall provide to the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations by March 2, 2009, a report that 
     outlines estimated costs related to the transfer of MSAAP to 
     NASA's SSC.
       Leasing authority and collections.--In 2003, NASA was 
     authorized by Congress to demonstrate leasing authority and 
     collections at two Centers. In 2007 and again in 2008, that 
     authority was amended by Congress such that NASA may enter 
     into leasing arrangements at all Centers after December 2008. 
     After deducting the costs of administering the leases, 
     Centers are then permitted to retain 65 percent of net 
     receipt revenue, and the balance is made available agency-
     wide for NASA. To date, NASA estimates that in fiscal years 
     2008 and 2009, gross receipts and collections will total in 
     excess of $24,300,000, and are anticipated to grow in the 
     future. These funds are in addition to annual appropriations.
       In March 2007, the Government Accountability Office noted 
     that NASA should develop an agency-wide policy to ensure 
     accountability, protect the Government, and provide 
     transparency regarding NASA's leasing authority and 
     collections activities. Later, in December 2007, a report by 
     the Surveys and Investigations staff of the House 
     Appropriations Committee found NASA's reports to the Congress 
     on its implementation of its leasing activities to be 
     inaccurate, incomplete and uninformative. To date, evidence 
     suggests that such deficiencies continue as information 
     provided to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
     on existing leasing collections and expenditures remains 
     incomplete and, provides no transparency in delineating the 
     costs of administering such leases, and no justification 
     supporting the activities undertaken with the expenditure of 
     the Centers' gross or net receipts.
       NASA must improve its management of the program, its 
     oversight of its centers' use of leasing receipts and its 
     accounting of the relationship between annual leasing 
     receipts and appropriated funds. To ensure annual oversight 
     and review, to improve overall program management and to 
     protect the Government, the bill contains a provision that 
     provides that the expenditure of gross receipts and 
     collections in fiscal year 2009 shall be subject to a 
     limitation of $9,000,000, and requires NASA to submit a 
     separate accounting of leasing collections and proposed 
     expenditures in its annual budget justification submission to 
     the Congress. Collections in excess of $9,000,000 (to also 
     include any unexpended balances of prior year collections) 
     shall remain available for expenditure in subsequent fiscal 
     years. NASA is directed, not later than 90 days after 
     enactment of this Act, to report to the House and Senate 
     Committees on actions taken by headquarters management to 
     better account for leasing receipts and collections and 
     expenditures of gross receipts at each Center and to identify 
     any activities previously budgeted from appropriated funds 
     that are now planned to be financed with leasing receipts. 
     NASA is further directed to submit a separate operating plan 
     by Center on the proposed use of all receipts and collections 
     in fiscal year 2009 prior to the expenditure of such funds, 
     and any deviation from such approved plan shall be subject to 
     section 505 of this Act. Further, NASA shall submit with its 
     annual budget submission a separate accounting by Center of 
     gross receipts and collections and proposed use of all funds 
     collected under its leasing authority. Such material shall 
     include a detailed presentation of all proposed expenditures, 
     to include but not limited to full-time equivalent (FTE) 
     staff years and object class data, and justification for such 
     proposed expenditures by project or activity.
       Conference expenses.--Section 1121(a) of the NASA 
     Authorization Act of 2008 (P.L. 110-422) provides NASA with 
     the discretion to define ``conference'' for the purposes of 
     that subparagraph. In view of the requirement of the National 
     Aeronautics and Space Act (P.L. 85-568), as amended, that 
     NASA provide for the widest practicable and appropriate 
     dissemination of information concerning its activities and 
     the results thereof, in no event shall the funds appropriated 
     by this Act be subject to the limitation of section 1121(a) 
     of P.L. 110-422 with respect to NASA expenditures for 
     scientific and technical conferences or education-related 
     conferences in which NASA science, technology, engineering 
     and mathematics (STEM) content is disseminated.


                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

       The bill provides $33,600,000 for the Office of the 
     Inspector General. In fiscal year 2009, NASA and its IG shall 
     follow the direction included in Public Law 110-161 as it 
     relates to the reporting of the costs of conferences. NASA 
     and the IG are to provide a report annually on these 
     activities to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations not later than October 1 of each year.


                       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS

       The bill contains a provision that provides for the no-year 
     availability of funds made available for construction of 
     facilities or environmental compliance and restoration 
     activities within the Science, Aeronautics, Exploration, 
     Space Operations and Cross Agency Support appropriations, 
     except that such provision shall not apply to amounts 
     appropriated for institutional minor revitalization and 
     minor construction of facilities, and institutional 
     planning and design.
       The bill contains language regarding the availability of 
     funds for announced prizes.
       The bill includes language that requires NASA to submit to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by March 2, 
     2009 a report by fiscal year, object class and mission 
     directorate costs expended to date and required for Space 
     Shuttle retirement and transition activities for fiscal years 
     2006 through 2015.
       The bill includes language extending the availability of 
     expiring but not canceled funds through 2015 for close-out of 
     Space Shuttle contracts and associated programs.
       The bill includes a provision that provides that any 
     funding designations and minimum funding requirements in any 
     other Act shall not be applicable to funds appropriated by 
     this title for the National Aeronautics and Space 
     Administration.

                      National Science Foundation


                    RESEARCH AND RELATED ACTIVITIES

       The bill includes $5,183,100,000 for fiscal year 2009 for 
     research and related activities. When determining the 
     allocation of resources, the NSF shall provide for a balanced 
     program across all science disciplines. NSF is further 
     encouraged to invest in cost-effective and innovative 
     solutions, such as grid-computing, to address the Nation's 
     cyber infrastructure needs. Funds provided under this heading 
     are not provided for adaptive systems technology.
       Public awareness.--NSF is encouraged to maximize 
     communication and open exchange of data and results that flow 
     from research that is funded by NSF appropriations, 
     consistent with existing Federal law. NSF is expected to 
     partner with grantees to expand the visibility to the public 
     of NSF-sponsored research, especially through the Internet. 
     NSF is the principal Federal agency charged with promoting 
     science and engineering education, and increasing the public 
     awareness of NSF's high-risk, high-reward research activities 
     will contribute to the development of the future of science 
     and technology workforce.
       Icebreaking.--Consistent with the direction to the U.S. 
     Coast Guard contained in explanatory statement accompanying 
     Public Law 110-329, NSF and the U.S. Coast Guard shall 
     renegotiate the existing agreement between the two agencies 
     so that operations and maintenance funding of the icebreakers 
     is requested in the Coast Guard's annual budget beginning in 
     fiscal year 2010. The NSF shall retain funding for the 
     science-only related costs of icebreaking services to be 
     procured from all entities (governmental and non-
     governmental). Funding to continue the caretaker status of 
     the Polar Star is not contained within this appropriation, 
     but rather within the funds appropriated to the Coast Guard 
     by Public Law 110-329.
       Experimental Program to Stimulate Cooperative Research 
     (EPSCoR).--Within the amounts provided, the bill designates 
     $133,000,000 for EPSCoR, of which at least $70,000,000 shall 
     be used for track 1 research infrastructure improvement (RII) 
     awards. The increase in the size of the track 1 awards as 
     provided in the most recent EPSCoR solicitation shall 
     continue. The fiscal year 2009 operating plan shall reflect 
     the direction herein and indicate the anticipated allocation 
     of funds among other activities (e.g., track II RII, co-
     funding, SBIR, outreach, etc.).
       NSF is directed to provide not less than $660,000,000 for 
     NSF investments/activities in the EPSCoR jurisdictions in 
     fiscal year 2009. Annual increases in NSF investments should 
     be proportional to the annual growth in overall research and 
     related activities appropriation.
       Plant Genome research program.--Within the funds provided, 
     $101,220,000 shall be available for the plant genome research 
     program.
       National Radio Astronomy Observatory.--The bill includes 
     $49,790,000 for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory.
       Polar program.--Any final selection criteria related to a 
     competitive logistics procurement for the Polar program shall 
     include as an evaluation measure the ability to provide high-
     speed communication of data to scientists.
       Mathematical and physical sciences.--The amounts include 
     $3,000,000 above the request to establish a mathematical 
     institute devoted to the identification and development of 
     mathematical talent and to advance mathematical topics 
     critical to the national interest. In addition, a total of

       Robert Noyce Scholarship program.--Increasing the number of 
     highly qualified K-12 math and science teachers is critical 
     to the creation of a new generation of innovators. The Robert 
     Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, including NSF Teaching 
     Fellowships and Master Teaching Fellowships, recruits and 
     supports talented mathematics and science undergraduate 
     students and postgraduate professionals to become K-12 
     mathematics and science teachers with scholarships, stipends 
     and other support. The increase provided in the bill for the 
     Noyce Program is for the purpose of expanding participation 
     in the grant programs established in section 10 and section 
     10A of the National Science Foundation Authorization Act of 
     2002 (42 U.S.C. 1862n-1) as amended by the America COMPETES 
     Act.

       Climate change education program.--The National Science 
     Foundation shall consult with the National Academies in the 
     development of a plan for the distribution of funds provided 
     herein for the climate change education program.


                 AGENCY OPERATIONS AND AWARD MANAGEMENT

       The bill provides $294,000,000 for agency operations and 
     award management for fiscal year 2009.
       NSF is directed to notify the House and Senate Committees 
     on Appropriations 90 days prior to changing its existing cost 
     sharing policies, and to include in such policy directive 
     measures to mitigate effects on grantees, particularly on 
     minority-serving institutions.


                  OFFICE OF THE NATIONAL SCIENCE BOARD

       The bill includes $4,030,000 for the Office of the National 
     Science Board.


                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

       The bill provides $12,000,000 for the Office of Inspector 
     General. Funds are available for one year.

                       TITLE IV--RELATED AGENCIES

                       Commission on Civil Rights


                         salaries and expenses

       The bill provides $8,800,000 for the salaries and expenses 
     of the Commission on Civil Rights. Within 60 days of 
     enactment of this Act, the Commission is directed to report 
     to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the 
     fiscal year 2009 budget and activities of the regional 
     offices and the State Advisory Committees, as well as on the 
     procedures employed to ensure transparency and the 
     participation of all Commissioners in the preparation and 
     review of all reports and briefing papers.

                Equal Employment Opportunity Commission


                         salaries and expenses

       The bill provides $343,925,000 for the Equal Employment 
     Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which is $2,000,000 above the 
     budget request.
       Backlog reduction.--EEOC's rising charge backlog is a 
     significant concern, but it does not appear that this issue 
     is being addressed by EEOC in a systematic or strategic 
     manner. Consequently, the EEOC is provided an increase of 
     $6,545,000 to begin addressing this problem. EEOC is directed 
     to report to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations within 60 days of the enactment of this Act 
     with a comprehensive plan for backlog reduction, including 
     future resource requirements and hiring needs. The hiring 
     needs section of the plan should also address EEOC's large 
     number of unfilled existing frontline staff positions. The 
     report should specify what steps EEOC is taking to fill those 
     positions, the reasons for the delay in filling them and how 
     these delays can be prevented in the future.
       Accuracy of workload projections.--The assumptions 
     underlying EEOC's future workload projections appear overly 
     optimistic or otherwise inaccurate. The EEOC is urged to 
     further refine its projections by calibrating them with 
     actual data, such as those available through the annual 
     midyear review.
       Customer service transition.--The fiscal year 2009 funding 
     level includes $3,635,000 to complete the transition of 
     EEOC's customer service operation to an in-house function. To 
     ensure that callers being handled by the new in-house 
     operation are receiving service that is equal to or better 
     than the service that was received through the prior system, 
     EEOC is directed to report to the House and Senate Committees 
     on Appropriations on comparative customer satisfaction data 
     no later than 60 days after the enactment of this Act. The 
     report should also include a cost-benefit analysis of hiring 
     higher credentialed employees for the call intake function.
       State, local and tribal assistance.--EEOC is directed to 
     submit the findings of its ongoing review of State, local and 
     tribal per charge costs to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations when that data becomes available.
       Workforce planning.--A recent GAO study found that EEOC did 
     not strategically or systematically approach mission needs, 
     customer expectations, workload or current workforce needs in 
     its draft Strategic Workforce Plan. The study concluded that 
     EEOC could better address its growing caseload if it made 
     better use of strategic planning. EEOC is directed to 
     implement the recommendations of GAO and to report back to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 60 
     days of the enactment of this Act on how those 
     recommendations were implemented.

                     International Trade Commission


                         salaries and expenses

       The bill includes $75,100,000 for the International Trade 
     Commission (ITC), which is $1,500,000 above the budget 
     request. The ITC's increasing section 337 intellectual 
     property investigations workload is outstripping available 
     resources, and the additional funding will allow ITC to hire 
     a sixth administrative law judge, lease additional courtroom 
     space, and cover necessary renovation costs.

                       Legal Services Corporation


               payment to the legal services corporation

       The bill provides $390,000,000 for the Legal Services 
     Corporation (LSC). Within the total provided, $365,800,000 is 
     for grants to basic field programs and required independent 
     audits; $4,200,000 is for the Office of Inspector General; 
     $16,000,000 is for management and administration; $3,000,000 
     is for client self-help and information technology; and 
     $1,000,000 is for loan repayment assistance. Current LSC 
     locality pay represents reasonable compensation for LSC 
     officers and employees, and a provision is included to 
     authorize the continuation of locality pay.
       Home foreclosure prevention.--LSC shall encourage its 
     grantees in areas experiencing high foreclosure rates to use 
     available funds to provide and expand legal assistance 
     related to home ownership preservation, home foreclosure 
     prevention and tenancy protection associated with home 
     foreclosure.


          administrative provision--legal services corporation

       The bill includes language to continue the statutory 
     requirements and restrictions contained in previous 
     appropriations Acts.

                        Marine Mammal Commission


                         salaries and expenses

       The bill includes $3,200,000 for the Marine Mammal 
     Commission. The increase above the request shall be for the 
     hiring of two additional FTEs to monitor oil and gas issues 
     such as the expansion of exploration and the clean-up of oil 
     spills on ice, as well as emerging fishery issues.

           National Veterans Business Development Corporation

       No funds are provided for the National Veterans Business 
     Development Corporation. Division D contains appropriations 
     for the Small Business Administration's veterans programs 
     that are available to support the work of small business 
     veterans centers.

            Office of the United States Trade Representative


                         salaries and expenses

       The bill includes $47,272,000 for the Office of the United 
     States Trade Representative (USTR), which is $1,000,000 above 
     the request. Additional funding is provided for USTR's pay 
     and inflation-related increases, and to support current 
     staffing levels.
       Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).--Significant 
     intellectual property issues infringe on our trading 
     relationships with China, Russia and Canada. USTR is 
     encouraged to continue to prioritize such issues in bilateral 
     and multilateral trade negotiations, and in particular, to 
     provide a report to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations on Russia's progress in complying with 
     intellectual property commitments.
       Textiles.--The current path of tariff reduction 
     negotiations under the Doha Round may result in a non-
     reciprocal arrangement detrimental to United States 
     manufacturers. Such negotiations should be consistent with 
     the trade negotiating objectives of the United States 
     contained in section 2012 of

[[Page H1840]]

     the Bipartisan Trade Promotion Authority Act of 2002 (19 
     U.S.C. 3802). The USTR is directed to report to the House and 
     Senate Committees on Appropriations within 60 days of 
     enactment of this Act regarding adherence to these 
     objectives.
       Reporting requirements.--The USTR may fare better in 
     bringing trade dispute cases to the WTO by using additional 
     support from private counsel. In-house expertise in long-
     term, complex WTO dispute cases is difficult to maintain in 
     an ever-changing international trade climate. Outside counsel 
     in countries such as China, Russia and Brazil could assist 
     with clarification of local laws and regulations, enforcement 
     policies and practices, and market conditions. USTR is 
     directed to report back to the House and Senate 
     Appropriations Committees on the desirability of a new such 
     authority.
       Galileo program.--The USTR is directed to report on the 
     status of U.S. equipment industry access to the European 
     Community's (EC) Galileo program and European markets for 
     related goods and services, no later than April 1, 2009, in 
     order to assess EC compliance with the 2004 US-EU Agreement 
     on GPS-Galileo Cooperation.
       World Trade Organization.--The Department of Commerce is 
     directed, in consultation with the USTR, to continue to 
     negotiate within the WTO to seek express recognition of the 
     existing right of WTO Members to distribute monies collected 
     from antidumping and countervailing duties. The agency shall 
     consult with and provide regular reports, every 60 days, to 
     the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations. In 
     addition, negotiations shall be conducted within the WTO 
     consistent with the negotiating objectives contained in the 
     Trade Act of 2002, Public Law 107-210, to maintain strong 
     U.S. trade remedies laws, prevent overreaching by WTO Panels 
     and the WTO Appellate Body, and prevent the creation of 
     obligations never negotiated or agreed to by the United 
     States.

                        State Justice Institute


                         salaries and expenses

       The bill provides $4,100,000 for the State Justice 
     Institute (SJI), of which $250,000 shall remain available 
     until September 30, 2010. Within funds appropriated, $500,000 
     may be used for strategic initiatives that will have national 
     implications for the courts. SJI is directed to continue its 
     policy of obtaining dollar-for-dollar matching funds for 
     grants awarded during fiscal year 2009. The SJI is encouraged 
     to continue to work with the Department of Justice Office of 
     Justice Programs on issues involving State courts.

     carryover funds.
       Section 506 prohibits funds from being used to implement,

     any product that was not made in America that person shall 
     not be eligible to receive any contract or subcontract with 
     funds made available in this Act.
       Section 508 requires quarterly reporting to Congress of 
     unobligated balances that were received during any previous 
     fiscal year.
       Section 509 provides that any closing or downsizing costs 
     incurred by a department or agency funded under this Act 
     resulting from funding reductions in the Act shall be 
     absorbed within the budgetary resources available to the 
     Department or agency, and provides transfer authority between

     reprogramming procedures.

     provided that such restrictions are applied equally to all 
     tobacco products or tobacco products of the same type. This

     processing of applications to establish foreign trade zones.

     funds for programs that discriminate against or denigrate the
