         CONSOLIDATED AND FURTHER CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS ACT

  Ms. MIKULSKI. Madam President, I submit to my colleagues the 
following explanatory statement with regard to H.R. 933:

       The divisions contained in the Act are as follows:
       DIVISION A--AGRICULTURE, RURAL DEVELOPMENT, FOOD AND DRUG 
     ADMINISTRATION, AND RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2013
       DIVISION B--COMMERCE, JUSTICE, SCIENCE, AND RELATED 
     AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2013
       DIVISION C--DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2013
       DIVISION D--DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY APPROPRIATIONS 
     ACT, 2013
       DIVISION E--MILITARY CONSTRUCTION AND VETERANS AFFAIRS, AND 
     RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2013
       DIVISION F--FULL-YEAR CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2013
       DIVISION G--OTHER MATTERS
       Section 3 of the Act 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.
       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.
       Section 5 of the Act states that each amount designated by 
     Congress as being for Overseas Contingency Operations/Global 
     War on Terror is contingent on the President so designating 
     all such amounts and transmitting such designations to 
     Congress. The provision is consistent with the requirements 
     in the Budget Control Act of 2011 for Overseas Contingency 
     Operations/Global War on Terror designations by the 
     President.
       References in this explanatory statement in division C, 
     Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2013, to 
     ``conferees'' are deemed to be references to the Committees 
     on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the 
     Senate, and references to the ``conference agreement'' are 
     deemed to be references to the recommendation in division C 
     of this Act.

       DIVISION A--AGRICULTURE, RURAL DEVELOPMENT, FOOD AND DRUG 
     ADMINISTRATION, AND RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2013 
                        CONGRESSIONAL DIRECTIVES

       Provisions that were in both the House Report (H.Rpt. 112-
     542) and Senate Report (S.Rpt. 112-163) remain unchanged 
     except as noted herein.
       Executive branch wishes cannot substitute for Congress' own 
     statements as to the best evidence of congressional 
     intentions, which are the official reports of the Congress. 
     Funds in this Act must be used for the purposes for which 
     appropriated, as required by section 1301 of title 31 of the 
     United States Code, which provides: ``Appropriations shall be 
     applied only to the objects for which the appropriations were 
     made except as otherwise provided by law.''
       The House and Senate report language that is not changed 
     herein is approved. While repeating some report language for 
     emphasis, these recommendations do not intend to negate the 
     language referred to above unless expressly provided herein.
       In cases in which the House or the Senate have directed the 
     submission of a report, such report is to be submitted to 
     both the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no 
     later than sixty days after enactment, unless otherwise 
     directed.
       Hereafter, in Division A, the term `the Committees' refers 
     to the Committees on Appropriations of the House of 
     Representatives and the Senate.

                     TITLE I--AGRICULTURAL PROGRAMS

                  Production, Processing and Marketing

                        Office of the Secretary


                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

       The recommendation includes $46,388,000 for the Office of 
     the Secretary. The following offices are included within the 
     Office of the Secretary: the immediate Office of the 
     Secretary; Office of Tribal Relations; Office of Homeland 
     Security and Emergency Coordination; Office of Advocacy and 
     Outreach; Office of Assistant Secretary for Administration; 
     Departmental Administration; Office of Assistant Secretary 
     for Congressional Relations; and Office of Communications. 
     The National Appeals Division, the Office of the General 
     Counsel, and the Office of Ethics are funded in separate 
     accounts.
       The recommendation includes a general provision that 
     requires the Secretary to submit spending plans to the 
     Committees within 30 days of enactment.

                        Office of the Secretary


                         [Dollars in thousands]

  Total, Office of the Secretary................................$46,388
       Reports requested by the House and Senate Appropriations 
     Committees are an important part of the Committees' oversight 
     responsibilities. There is concern about the Department's 
     delinquency in completing these reports. There is also 
     concern that the delay is due to excessively long reviews, 
     especially in the Office of the Secretary. The reports are 
     due on the dates specified in the House or Senate reports or 
     herein. Each agency of the Department is directed to comply 
     with the deadlines and to cooperate fully with the Office of 
     Budget and Program Analysis in providing these reports. It is 
     noted that the Committees reserve the right to call before 
     them any agency that does not submit its reports by the 
     specified due date.
       Any reallocation of resources related to the collocation of 
     State offices scheduled for 2013 and subsequent years is 
     subject to the reprogramming procedures in section 726 of 
     this Act.
       The Secretary of Agriculture is directed to advise the 
     Committees, through the Office of Budget and Program 
     Analysis, of the status of all reports requested of the 
     Department at the time of submission of the fiscal year 2014 
     budget and monthly thereafter. All correspondence related to 
     the directives must be addressed to the Committees.
       The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has been 
     without a permanent Chief Financial Officer since November 
     2009. With its substantial loan portfolios, potential for 
     improper payments in mandatory programs, and history of 
     uneven financial audits, the necessity for a full complement 
     of senior USDA financial leaders is evident. The Secretary is 
     directed to submit a report to the Committees detailing how 
     the Department plans to expeditiously recruit and fill this 
     vacancy with a permanent Chief Financial Officer. The 
     Secretary is reminded of the statutory requirements of 31 
     U.S.C. 901 and 902.

     Civil Rights.

        Agriculture Buildings and Facilities and Rental Payments


                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

       The recommendation includes $271,336,000 for Agriculture 
     Buildings and Facilities and Rental Payments. The 
     recommendation includes $175,694,000 for rental payments; 
     $13,473,000 for Department of Homeland Security building 
     security; and $82,169,000 for building operations and 
     maintenance.
       The recommendation includes a one-time increase above the 
     budget request of $30,000,000 for building operations and 
     maintenance. This increase is provided for high priority 
     projects in the Whitten and South Buildings, addressing first 
     those projects addressing life and safety issues.

                     Hazardous Materials Management


                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

       The recommendation includes $3,992,000 for Hazardous 
     Materials Management.

                      Office of Inspector General

       The recommendation includes $89,016,000 for the Office of 
     Inspector General.

       The recommendation includes $45,074,000 for the Office of 
     the General Counsel.

                            Office of Ethics

       The recommendation includes $3,405,000 for the Office of 
     Ethics.

  Office of the Under Secretary for Research, Education and Economics

       The recommendation includes $893,000 for the Office of the 
     Under Secretary for Research, Education, and Economics.
       The Under Secretary is encouraged to evaluate and adjust 
     efforts to identify methods of preventing and controlling 
     tomato diseases affecting tomato growers nationwide.

                       Economic Research Service

       The recommendation includes $77,397,000 for the Economic 
     Research Service.

                National Agricultural Statistics Service

       The recommendation includes $179,477,000 for the National 
     Agricultural Statistics Service. This includes $62,500,000 
     for the Census of Agriculture.

                     Agricultural Research Service


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The recommendation includes $1,101,853,000 for the 
     Agricultural Research Service, Salaries and Expenses. The 
     recommendation does not concur with the President's budget 
     request regarding the termination of extramural research 
     projects or the closure of six research laboratories. It is 
     expected that the Agricultural Research Service will allocate 
     the resources provided to the highest priority research and 
     utilize existing processes consistent with the reprogramming 
     requirements of this Act to notify the Committees of any 
     changes from the previous fiscal year. The recommendation 
     also includes funding requested for repair and maintenance 
     and for the National Agricultural Library.
       There remains concern about the high rates of obesity in 
     this country. Research into human nutrition is important to 
     help prevent childhood obesity and the medical issues obesity 
     brings. In addition, there is strong evidence that nutrition 
     plays a vital role in how a person ages, but more research in 
     this area is needed. Therefore, the Agricultural Research 
     Service is encouraged to continue research relating to 
     childhood and adult obesity as well as the impact of 
     nutrition on aging.

               National Institute of Food and Agriculture


                   RESEARCH AND EDUCATION ACTIVITIES

       The recommendation includes $738,638,000 for the National 
     Institute of Food and Agriculture's research and education 
     activities.
       The Department is directed to include in the fiscal year 
     2014 budget request funding levels proposed to be allocated 
     to and the expected publication date, scope, and allocation 
     level for each request for awards to be published under (1) 
     each priority area specified in section 2(b)(2) of the 
     Competitive, Special, and Facilities Research Grant Act (7 
     U.S.C. 450i(b)(2)); (2) each research and extension project 
     carried out under section 1621(a) of the Food, Agriculture, 
     Conservation, and Trade Act of 1990 (7 U.S.C. 5811(a)); (3) 
     each grant awarded under section 1672B(a) of the Food, 
     Agriculture, Conservation, and Trade Act of 1990 (7 U.S.C. 
     5925b(a)); (4) each research, education, and extension 
     project carried out under section 406 of the Research Reform 
     Act of 1998 (7 U.S.C. 7626); and (5) each research and 
     extension project carried out under section 412 of the 
     Agricultural Research, Extension, and Education Reform Act of 
     1998 (7 U.S.C. 7632). The term 'request for awards' means a 
     funding announcement published by NIFA that provides detailed 
     information on funding opportunities at the Institute, 
     including the purpose, eligibility, restrictions, focus 
     areas, evaluation criteria, regulatory information, and 
     instructions on how to apply for such opportunities.
       There is recognition of the broad responsibilities in 
     agricultural research, education, extension, and economics 
     that Congress has given to NIFA, and NIFA is directed to 
     prioritize funding for the highest quality, peer-reviewed and 
     relevant research.

 HISPANIC-SERVING AGRICULTURAL COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES ENDOWMENT FUND

       The recommendation does not include an appropriation for 
     the Hispanic-Serving Agricultural Colleges and Universities 
     Endowment Fund.


  OFFICE OF THE UNDER SECRETARY FOR MARKETING AND REGULATORY PROGRAMS

       The recommendation includes $893,000 for the Office of the 
     Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs.

               Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

       The recommendation includes $821,851,000 for the Animal and 
     Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).
       The President's fiscal year 2013 budget proposal for APHIS 
     to add an additional line item or account in order to fund 
     the two separate accounts for Equine and Cervid Health and 
     Sheep and Goat Health is not supported. The increase above 
     the President's budget request supports equine veterinary 
     medicine and related expenses.
       The recommendation includes increased funding for the 
     animal disease traceability system within the Animal Health 
     Technical Services line item. The Agency is encouraged to 
     produce the most cost-effective, least burdensome regulatory 
     system in the final rule. APHIS is directed to continue to 
     submit quarterly reports (by March 31, 2013; June 30, 2013; 
     and September 30, 2013) to the Committees with specific cost 
     information, assessments of progress, and any deviations from 
     the scheduled completion dates.
       There is concern about APHIS's increased responsibility of 
     managing and enforcing the importation of illegally harvested 
     plants, especially when such activities fall outside of the 
     Agency's primary mission to protect and promote the health 
     and welfare of U.S. plants and animals. The Secretary is 
     directed to provide the Committees with a report detailing 
     the current responsibilities, activities, expenditures, and 
     future plans of all agencies involved with the 2008 Farm Bill 
     provisions that amended the Lacey Act. Until such report is 
     received, APHIS may not spend more on the Lacey Act 
     amendments than was spent in fiscal year 2012.
       The National Clean Plant Network is instrumental in 
     ensuring that nurseries can provide safe, virus-free plant 
     materials to orchards, vineyards, and other growers. There is 
     recognition of the value of continued research to improve 
     detection and eradication of viruses, and the Department is 
     encouraged to continue its work on this important program.
       The following table reflects the recommended amounts:

     believe that the Department's vision for affordable rural 
     rental housing is out of focus. A change in focus in the

     necessary, and the Department is directed to develop and 
     present to the Committees a definitive plan to address rural 
     rental housing needs.

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

       The recommendation includes $7,046,000,000 for the Special 
     Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and 
     Children (WIC).
       In the WIC program income eligibility is set by statute at 
     185 percent of the Federal Poverty Level for households ``of 
     related or non-related individuals who are living together as 
     one economic unit''. The way in which income is defined and 
     verified at the local agency can vary and potentially give 
     rise to a situation where WIC participants have income 
     exceeding the eligibility standards. USDA's April 2012 report 
     entitled ``National Survey of WIC Participants II--Volume 2'' 
     addressed this issue, but noted that additional follow-up 
     information is needed. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) 
     is directed to provide a report to the Committees within 60 
     days of enactment of this Act detailing what variables each 
     State uses in determining income and ways in which USDA could 
     work to ensure income eligibility uniformity. The report 
     should specify what changes, if any, could be accomplished 
     administratively and which would require changes to existing 
     law to ensure income eligibility uniformity.
       In fulfilling the report on WIC food cost management as 
     requested in the House Committee report, USDA is directed to 
     include the following analyses of: (1) States whose costs for 
     WIC foods are significantly higher when purchased by WIC than 
     those same foods when purchased outside of the WIC program; 
     (2) vendor-group average costs to understand whether the 
     types of abuses and vendor management issues cited in the 
     House report are a systemic issue and ways to manage these 
     specific issues; and (3) any management recommendations or 
     actions USDA will take to ensure program integrity going 
     forward.
       The Secretary is encouraged to amend 7 CFR 246.10 in order 
     for State agencies to include all varieties of fresh, whole 
     or cut vegetables, except for vegetables with added sugars, 
     fats, or oils; provided that inclusion of such vegetables 
     contribute towards meeting the special nutritional needs of 
     program participants and increases the availability of 
     low-cost, high-nutrient alternatives for participants 
     throughout the year.

               Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

       The recommendation includes $77,290,160,000 for the 
     Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The recommendation 
     includes $3,000,000,000 to be made available for a 
     contingency reserve.
       USDA is urged to require States to share SNAP recipient 
     case data, including the appropriate use of the ALERT 
     database, so USDA may determine whether individuals or 
     households are receiving duplicative benefits in more than 
     one State. To prevent the potential for fraud, the Secretary 
     also is urged to continue to explore information from 
     information broker services that might help to inform the 
     authorization of SNAP retailers and use its suspension and 
     debarment authority to prevent repeat offenders from re-
     entering and defrauding SNAP or any other Federal program. 
     USDA is directed to submit a report to the Committees within 
     60 days of enactment, detailing plans to prevent future fraud 
     and improper payments, including efforts to debar or exclude 
     both vendors and participants from the receipt of benefits if 
     found guilty of fraud or abuse.
       The recommendation includes the following for the 
     Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program:


                      Total Obligational Authority

     commodities to be purchased with Supplemental Nutrition 
     Assistance Program funds.


                   NUTRITION PROGRAMS ADMINISTRATION

       The recommendation includes $143,505,000 for Nutrition 
     Programs Administration. This funding level includes 
     increases of $3,514,000 for review, monitoring, and 
     investigation activities in the management of SNAP retailers 
     and management evaluation work in FNS regional offices; 
     $441,000 for administrative costs; and $1,050,000 for 
     information technology systems managed by the Center for

       The recommendation includes the following increases in 
     budget authority: $12,500,000 for food safety; $10,000,000 
     for food and drug safety inspections in China; $3,510,000 for 
     advancing medical countermeasures; $21,166,000 for necessary 
     expenses, rental payments, and facilities. FDA's proposed 
     reduction of $19,706,000 due to information technology 
     savings is also accepted.
       There is concern that over a year has passed since USDA 
     published its dietary guidelines and more than ten months 
     have passed since the publication of the fiscal year 2012 
     Committee reports directing FDA to commence reconsideration 
     of its 2004 seafood advisory, and yet FDA has not published 
     its draft revision of the advisory. Given data demonstrating 
     that women of childbearing years, pregnant women, and mothers 
     with young children are eating too little seafood for their 
     health and the health of their babies, and the role the 
     language of FDA's 2004 advisory may play in discouraging 
     healthy consumption of seafood, a more urgent response by FDA 
     was expected. Therefore, FDA is directed to issue a final 
     seafood advisory consistent with USDA's dietary guidelines.
       The increasing role of nutritional rating and front of 
     package labeling claims in the marketplace is recognized. To 
     promote public health and facilitate consumer understanding, 
     such information should be based on criteria that are public 
     and readily available to consumers. The FDA is directed to 
     evaluate such systems and symbols to ensure compliance with 
     relevant FDA food labeling requirements.
       While the considerable time and effort put into producing 
     the FDA budget justification is appreciated, due to the 
     changes within the FDA's budget over the last several years, 
     including the proposal and authorization of various new user 
     fees, the justification has become difficult to analyze. The 
     FDA is reminded that the budget justification is specifically 
     for the use of the Committees. A more streamlined approach to 
     the justification would serve both the Agency and the 
     Committees. Therefore, prior to submission of the FY 2014 
     budget, FDA is directed to work with the Committees to 
     determine the most helpful format in which to submit the 
     justification.

     DIVISION B--COMMERCE, JUSTICE, SCIENCE, AND RELATED AGENCIES 
                        APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2013

       Report language included in House Report 112-463 (``the 
     House report'') or Senate Report 112-158 (``the Senate 
     report'') that is not changed by this explanatory statement 
     or this Act is approved. The explanatory statement, while 
     repeating some language for emphasis, is not intended to 
     negate the language referred to above unless expressly 
     provided herein. In cases where both the House report and the 
     Senate report address a particular issue not specifically 
     addressed in the explanatory statement, the House report and 
     the Senate report should be read as consistent and are to be 
     interpreted accordingly. In cases where the House report or 
     the Senate report directs the submission of a report, such 
     report is to be submitted to both the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations.
       It is expected that each department and agency funded in 
     this Act shall follow the directions set forth in this Act 
     and the accompanying statement, and shall not reallocate 
     resources or reorganize activities except as provided herein. 
     Reprogramming procedures shall apply to: funds provided in 
     this Act; unobligated balances from previous appropriations 
     Acts that are available for obligation or expenditure in 
     fiscal year 2013; and non-appropriated resources such as fee 
     collections that are used to meet program requirements in 
     fiscal year 2013. These procedures are specified in section 
     505 of this Act.
       Any reprogramming request shall include any out-year 
     budgetary impacts and a separate accounting of program or 
     mission impacts on estimated carryover funds. Any program, 
     project or activity cited in this statement, or in the House 
     report or the Senate report and not changed by this Act or 
     statement, shall be construed as the position of the Congress 
     and shall not be subject to reductions or reprogramming 
     without prior approval of the Committees. Further, it is 
     expected that any department or agency funded in this Act 
     which plans a reduction-in-force to notify by letter the 
     Appropriations Committees of the House and Senate 30 days in 
     advance of the date of any such planned personnel action.
       It is noted that when a department or agency submits a 
     reprogramming or transfer request to the Appropriations 
     Committees of the House and Senate and does not receive 
     identical responses by the House and Senate, it shall be the 
     responsibility of the department or agency seeking the 
     reprogramming to reconcile the differences between the two 
     bodies before proceeding. If reconciliation is not possible, 
     the items in disagreement in the reprogramming or transfer 
     request shall be considered unapproved.
       In compliance with section 537 of this Act, the Departments 
     of Commerce and Justice, the National Aeronautics and Space 
     Administration and the National Science Foundation are

     after enactment of this Act.

       National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS).--$826,129,000 is 
     for NMFS operations, research, and facilities.
       Regional fisheries offices.--Senate language regarding the 
     relocation of the NMFS Northeast Regional Office is not 
     adopted. However, NOAA's lack of responsiveness toward 
     communities in the Mid-Atlantic area remains deeply 
     troubling. Therefore, NOAA shall report to the Committees on 
     Appropriations no later than 30 days after enactment of this 
     Act regarding its plans to enhance and repair core NMFS 
     functions in the Mid-Atlantic region in the areas of 
     fisheries management, endangered species, habitat protection 
     and restoration. The report shall include specific ways NMFS 
     will: (1) streamline procedures to allow Mid-Atlantic 
     fisheries decisions to be made locally rather than remotely, 
     as appropriate and consistent with procedures and practices 
     in other NMFS regions; (2) increase the Mid-Atlantic Fishery 
     Management Council's accessibility to NOAA, consistent with 
     the accessibility afforded to other fishery management 
     councils; (3) reduce bureaucracy to allow difficult Mid-
     Atlantic issues to be brought to the attention of the NMFS 
     Northeast Regional Office and NOAA Fisheries leadership in 
     NOAA headquarters on an expedited basis; and (4) improve on-
     the-ground coordination with Mid-Atlantic fisheries partners.
       For clarity, it is noted that this Act and the accompanying 
     statement approve the proposed consolidation of NOAA's West 
     Coast Regional Offices, not the West Coast Fisheries Science 
     Centers.
       Catch shares.--Section 543 of H.R. 5326 of the 112th 
     Congress regarding catch shares is not included. However, 
     NOAA is directed to provide a report to the Committees on 
     Appropriations no later than 90 days after enactment of this 
     Act that describes the current process in the South Atlantic, 
     the Mid-Atlantic, New England, and the Gulf of Mexico 
     fisheries whereby commercial and recreational fishermen 
     participate in the process to determine how a given fishery 
     will be managed. This report shall also include 
     recommendations as appropriate to ensure that entities 
     impacted by the implementation of catch shares in the South 
     Atlantic, the Mid-Atlantic, New England, and the Gulf of

       Turtle excluder devices.--Section 562 of H.R. 5326 of the 
     112th Congress regarding turtle excluder devices is not 
     included. However, NOAA is expected to review observer 
     reports, sea turtle stranding and necropsy data, and other 
     information, as well as public comments, to determine whether 
     a rule is warranted for turtle excluder devices for certain 
     vessels operating in southeastern U.S. shrimp fisheries. NOAA 
     is directed to provide a report to the Committees on 
     Appropriations no later than 120 days after enactment of this 
     Act regarding these findings.

       Oceanic and Atmospheric Research.--$390,638,000 is for 
     Oceanic and Atmospheric Research operations, research, and 
     facilities.
       Ocean Exploration.--Senate report language regarding ocean 
     exploration partnerships related to the National Undersea 
     Research Program (NURP) is not adopted. The proposed 
     elimination of NURP is supported, but there is concern about 
     terminating advanced technology and at-sea capabilities 
     provided by existing NURP partners without proper contingency 
     plans. NOAA is directed to determine which regional 
     partnerships are producing the most valuable scientific 
     information critical to supporting NOAA's exploration 
     mission. NOAA is encouraged to prioritize in this analysis 
     those programs with ocean-going assets, and NOAA is directed 
     further to competitively award the funding provided above the 
     request to preserve the work for the top centers it 
     determines most valuable and consolidate this effort within 
     the Ocean Exploration program, as appropriate. Senate 
     language directing NOAA to submit an inventory of all NOAA-
     owned assets within the former NURP program and a plan for 
     disposal or maintenance of these assets is retained.

       National Weather Service (NWS).--$926,116,000 is for NWS 
     operations, research, and facilities. This amount is 
     $34,762,000 above revised estimates and restores reductions 
     proposed in the budget to the tsunami program, hurricane 
     research, forecast capabilities, and information technology 
     staffing levels.
       Local Warnings and Forecasts.--The funding recommendation 
     includes an additional $17,100,000 for the NWS to address 
     current operational shortfalls identified by an investigation 
     of financial mismanagement within the NWS and consistent with 
     the proposed realignment of the NWS budget in the wake of the 
     investigation. Concern remains that the inappropriate 
     movement of funds within the NWS could have jeopardized the 
     NWS' ability to accurately forecast the weather and that 
     these actions may negatively impact the NWS' ability to make 
     forecast improvements in the future. Therefore, in addition 
     to the increases provided in this account, additional funds 
     are provided to NWS in the Procurement, Acquisition and 
     Construction (PAC) account to restore reductions to systems 
     improvement activities. The NWS is directed to continue 
     implementing corrective actions identified by the Inspector 
     General, the Department and NOAA to ensure that the critical 
     mission of the NWS is not compromised by financial 
     mismanagement. In addition, dissatisfaction remains with 
     NOAA's failure to determine the true costs necessary to 
     support NWS operational needs. Therefore, NOAA is directed to 
     provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations within 
     30 days after enactment of this Act regarding: progress made 
     in implementing corrective actions; assessments of impacts to 
     NWS forecast capabilities; and a timeline for providing the 
     Committees on Appropriations with a budget that represents 
     the true operational costs of the NWS.
       National Mesonet Program.--The continuation of the mesonet 
     program through a competitive process is supported. Senate 
     language is clarified that NOAA is not required to integrate 
     mesonet observations into NWS severe weather alerts, conduct 
     pilots, or use funds to study how mesonet data can be 
     integrated into the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing 
     System. However, NWS is not prevented from undertaking any of 
     these activities. The Senate's reference to NOAA Link is not 
     adopted, but NOAA shall continue to use the most appropriate 
     contract vehicles for information technology contracts across 
     the agency. NOAA is directed to provide a report to the 
     Committees on Appropriations no later than 120 days after 
     enactment of this Act that includes a discussion of the 
     recommendations from the 2009 National Academy of Sciences 
     report, Observing Weather and Climate from the Ground Up: A 
     Nationwide Network of Networks and an analysis from NOAA 
     regarding any future plans to assimilate mesonets into its 
     enterprise.

               PROCUREMENT, ACQUISITION AND CONSTRUCTION

       This Act includes a total program level of $1,941,036,000 
     in direct obligations under this heading, of which 
     $1,926,036,000 is appropriated from the general fund and 
     $15,000,000 is derived from recoveries of prior year 
     obligations. The following narrative description and table 
     identifies the specific activities and funding levels 
     included in this Act:
       Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research.--$10,379,000 is 
     for research supercomputing activities.
       National Weather Service.--The Act restores $12,400,000 in 
     reductions proposed by the Commerce Department in its 
     realignment of the fiscal year 2013 budget request required 
     as a result of financial mismanagement issues within the NWS. 
     Direction is included to the Department and NOAA in the 
     Operations, Research, and Facilities (ORF) account regarding 
     funding for NWS programs in this account.
       NOAA weather satellites.--The value of NOAA's weather 
     satellite programs cannot be overstated in terms of the data 
     collected that is used to develop daily weather forecasts and 
     provide citizens with ample warning about severe weather. 
     Unfortunately, certain NOAA satellite acquisition programs, 
     particularly the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS), remain 
     mired in cost overruns, missed deadlines, dysfunctional 
     oversight, and lack of transparency in budgeting and 
     planning. Recent reports from an Independent Review Team 
     (IRT) and the Department of Commerce Inspector General 
     validate these concerns. To address these problems, the 
     Senate recommended transferring responsibility and funding 
     for satellite acquisition from NOAA to the National 
     Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). However, 
     concerns have been raised that transferring lead construction 
     and acquisition responsibility from NOAA to NASA in the 
     middle of a fiscal year could potentially result in further 
     launch delays. Additional information to fully evaluate the 
     implications of transferring acquisition of operational 
     satellites to NASA is needed. Therefore, to avoid both known 
     and unknown risks at this time, the Senate proposal to 
     transfer NOAA satellite programs to NASA is not adopted, but 
     instead $1,814,309,000, an increase of $117,664,000 above 
     fiscal year 2012, is provided for NESDIS satellite 
     procurement programs within NOAA. This amount includes an 
     overall reduction of $36,000,000 for administrative 
     efficiencies and other savings that NOAA is expected to 
     achieve within its satellite portfolio. NOAA is directed to 
     prioritize the weather missions of the Geostationary 
     Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) and JPSS programs 
     within the funds provided and submit a spending plan to the 
     Committees on Appropriations no later than 30 days after 
     enactment of this Act with funding levels for each program, 
     project, or activity within NESDIS PAC.
       While NOAA is instituting structural changes to the 
     management structure of JPSS as recommended by the IRT, it is 
     equally important for NOAA to aggressively move to define 
     JPSS requirements that prioritize the weather mission and 
     establish a refined baseline that validates and finalizes the 
     program scope and costs. To assist NOAA in achieving these 
     goals, NOAA is directed to submit a report to the Committees 
     on Appropriations no later than 90 days after enactment of 
     this Act that includes the following information: (1) 
     documentation that reflects total lifecycle costs for JPSS at 
     $11,900,000,000 and for GOES-R at $10,860,000,000; (2) 
     documentation that satellite requirements have been finalized 
     and that the weather missions have been prioritized within 
     the NOAA satellite portfolio; (3) a plan that maintains or 
     advances, as appropriate, the launch schedules for JPSS and 
     GOES; and (4) a plan to eliminate duplicative management 
     costs and indirect overhead within the NESDIS satellite 
     portfolio.As part of this report, NOAA is directed to 
     consider transferring the Jason satellite system construction 
     to NASA as recommended by the July 2012 IRT report. Further, 
     NOAA is directed to include in this report an update on the 
     study underway to review options for mitigating the gap 
     between the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi 
     NPP) and JPSS-1 and for mitigating the loss of data in the 
     event of a failure of either the Suomi NPP or JPSS. Within 
     120 days after enactment of this Act, NOAA shall submit a 
     report to the Committees on Appropriations that includes 
     detailed spending plans for each of the programs within the 
     NESDIS satellite portfolio, to include amounts for 
     administration and reserves.
       This Act and the accompanying statement only reflect near-
     term funding needs for the remainder of fiscal year 2013. 
     With the timely submission of these reports, NOAA will 
     provide assurances to the Committees on Appropriations that 
     it has prioritized the weather mission within its satellite 
     portfolio and has stabilized the overall management of these 
     programs to ensure that these costs do not erode other 
     important NOAA missions. The fiscal year 2014 budget request 
     and documents requested herein will be evaluated to determine 
     whether NOAA has made concrete and positive changes to 
     address the problems and directions outlined above.
       NOAA Ship Ka'imimoana (KA).--An increase of $2,600,000 
     above the request is included to begin repairs to the KA.NOAA 
     is reminded to review priorities across the agency in the 
     future to ensure that critical missions like those performed 
     by the KA are maintained.

                                TITLE II

                         DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

                         General Administration


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       This Act includes $110,822,000 for General Administration, 
     Salaries and Expenses.
       Eliminating duplication and improving efficiencies in DOJ 
     grants.--As the United States experiences budgetary 
     constraints, there is an ever-increasing need to ensure that 
     governmental resources, including those awarded through 
     grants and subgrants, are appropriately targeted and that 
     unnecessary duplication is mitigated. Therefore, as directed 
     in the Senate report, the Attorney General shall follow the 
     recommendations of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) 
     and report to the Committees on Appropriations within 120 
     days of the enactment of this Act on the efforts of the 
     Department of Justice (DOJ) to:
       (1) conduct an assessment to better understand the extent 
     to which DOJ grant programs overlap with one another and 
     determine if grant programs may be consolidated to mitigate 
     the risk of unnecessary duplication; and
       (2) direct granting agencies to coordinate with one another 
     on a consistent basis to review potential or recent grant 
     awards, including subgrant awards reported by DOJ prime grant 
     awardees, to the extent possible, before awarding new grants, 
     and take steps to establish written policies and procedures 
     to govern this coordination and help ensure that it occurs.
       Operation Fast and Furious.--In September 2012, the Office 
     of Inspector General (OIG) submitted its comprehensive report 
     on Operation Fast and Furious. The review revealed a series 
     of misguided strategies, tactics, errors in judgment, and 
     management failures that led to ATF's knowing failure to 
     interdict firearms destined for Mexico, and criticized 
     Department components for pursuing this strategy without 
     adequately taking into account the danger to public safety 
     that it created. The OIG also found that the Department 
     failed to respond accurately to a congressional inquiry about 
     these matters because it had relied on the very components 
     that were the subject of serious allegations for information, 
     which in turn was provided to Congress. The Department later 
     withdrew its inaccurate response.
       The Department is directed to implement fully and promptly 
     the six recommendations made in the OIG report to increase 
     the Department's involvement in and oversight of ATF 
     operations, improve coordination among the Department's law 
     enforcement components, and enhance the Department's wiretap 
     application review and authorization process. The Department 
     shall report to the Committees on Appropriations within 60 
     days of enactment of this Act on the Department's progress in 
     implementing these recommendations. All of the departments 
     and agencies funded in this Act are expected to confirm 
     information to be provided to Congress so that they can 
     respond accurately to all congressional inquiries.
       Prescription drug abuse.--The Attorney General is urged to 
     collaborate with State and local organizations, including 
     experienced nonprofits, as a means of sharing best practices 
     for reducing prescription drug diversion and abuse, including 
     the establishment of prescription drug monitoring programs, 
     proper drug disposal, and increased enforcement on pill mills 
     and doctor shopping.
       Obscenity enforcement.--The Department shall submit a 
     report no later than 90 days after the enactment of this Act 
     on its adult obscenity investigation and prosecution workload 
     statistics and accomplishments during the 12 months prior to 
     the enactment of this Act.
       Product procurements.--This Act continues language from the 
     Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies 
     Appropriations Act, 2012, directing that, to the extent 
     practicable, promotional items purchased with funds provided 
     by this Act shall be produced in the United States. The 
     Department is expected to work with Federal Prison 
     Industries, Inc. (FPI) to maintain its survey information on 
     promotional products in a database in order to help inform 
     the FPI board of directors of new opportunities to repatriate 
     manufacturing, and expect that any manufacturing activities 
     initiated as a result are intended to create new American 
     jobs, not compete with existing United States businesses.
       Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA).--The Department is 
     expected to continue efforts to provide assistance in the 
     form of training, technical assistance, and implementation 
     grants to assist State, local, and tribal jurisdictions in 
     achieving compliance with the PREA national standards.
       Drug-related violence.--Efforts by Federal law enforcement 
     to reduce drug trafficking and associated violence in the 
     Southwest border region have affected trafficking routes and 
     crime rates in the Caribbean. The Attorney General is 
     expected to address these trends by allocating necessary 
     resources to areas substantially affected by drug-related 
     violence, and reporting such actions to the Committees on 
     Appropriations.

     continue to focus on investigations and prosecutions related 
     to the sexual exploitation of children, as authorized by the 
     Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (Public 
     Law 109-248) and as part of Project Safe Childhood. Not less 
     than $43,184,000 shall be available for this purpose in 
     fiscal year 2013.
       Human trafficking.--In fiscal year 2012, Congress directed 
     each U.S. Attorney to establish or participate in a regional 
     human trafficking task force. The accompanying statement of 
     the managers also directed, ``Task force meetings should 
     focus specifically on combating human trafficking, with an 
     emphasis on undertaking proactive investigations.'' U.S. 
     Attorneys are expected to maintain their task force 
     participation and leadership roles in fiscal year 2013 and to 
     undertake proactive investigations, including investigations 
     of persons or entities facilitating trafficking in persons 
     through the use of classified advertising on the Internet. 
     The Department shall submit comprehensive semi-annual reports 
     regarding the work of each of these task forces. These 
     reports shall also identify any U.S. Attorney's office that 
     is not in compliance with this directive. The Department 
     shall submit its first report not later than 60 days after 
     the enactment of this Act.
       Internet sex trafficking.--There are grave concerns that 
     certain websites that advertise ``adult services'' continue 
     to be used to facilitate sex trafficking of children. The 
     Department is directed to assess the effectiveness of current 
     legal and investigatory tools in addressing the use of such 
     websites for sex trafficking and the extent to which the 
     Department is making full and aggressive use of such tools, 
     and reportto the Committees on Appropriations on the results 
     of that assessment not later than 30 days after the enactment 
     of this Act. If the Attorney General determines that there is 
     insufficient Federal authority under which to combat this 
     activity, the report shall include an analysis and 
     recommendations to Congress of any legislative or 
     administrative initiatives that may be needed to fully equip 
     law enforcement to tackle this problem.

[[Page S1305]]

     Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF), including $370,602,000 
     for investigations and $151,191,000 for prosecutions.
       Transnational organized crime.--This Act does not include 
     the requested increase in appropriations under this account 
     for the International Organized Crime Intelligence Operations 
     Center (IOC-2); instead, the Department is expected to fund 
     all IOC-2 activities from within the overall amount provided 
     under this heading for investigations, not to exceed 
     $1,000,000. The Department shall submit a report to the 
     Committees, no later than 60 days after the enactment of this 
     Act, detailing the staff and funding resources planned for 
     IOC-2 in fiscal year 2013.

                    Federal Bureau of Investigation


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       This Act includes $8,185,007,000 for the salaries and 
     expenses of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), 
     including $1,689,113,000 for intelligence, $3,330,036,000 for 
     Counterterrorism/Counterintelligence, $2,663,835,000 for 
     Criminal Enterprises and Federal Crimes, and $502,023,000 for 
     Criminal Justice Services.
       Computer intrusions.--A program increase is included of 
     $23,132,000 and 112 positions for computer intrusions as 
     described in the House report, including the submission of an 
     annual national cyber threat assessment, and Senate report 
     language on training for cyber agents.
       Surveillance.--A program increase of $10,244,000 is 
     included for additional physical surveillance specialists as 
     described in the House report, including the reporting 
     requirement described in the House report.
       Gangs.--An increase of $9,000,000 above the request is 
     included to combat violent gang crime. The proposal by the 
     Administration to eliminate the National Gang Intelligence 
     Center (NGIC) is rejected. Funds are included to continue the 
     operation of NGIC, and to provide additional resources to 
     existing Safe Streets Task Forces. Within the overall funds 
     provided for Criminal Enterprises and Federal Crimes, the FBI 
     is expected to launch a nationwide anti-gang initiative, 
     allocating agents and other personnel to task forces 
     experiencing the most severe violent gang crime, and where 
     gangs have established links to violent international drug 
     distribution cartels. The FBI shall report to the Committees 
     on Appropriations on the planned initiative, and the 
     corresponding allocations of funding and staff resources, no 
     later than 90 days after the enactment of this Act. The 
     report shall be put together in coordination with the Bureau 
     of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the United 
     States Marshals Service and the Drug Enforcement 
     Administration, and shall address how the FBI is working with 
     these and other partner law enforcement agencies in these 
     efforts.
       Financial crime.--Within the total for Criminal Enterprises 
     and Federal Crimes is included the requested amount for 
     activities related to combating corporate fraud, securities 
     and commodities fraud, mortgage fraud, and other financial 
     crime.
       Human trafficking.--Within the amount provided, the FBI is 
     expected to increase activities related to the investigation 
     of severe forms of trafficking in persons. The FBI shall 
     submit a report to the Committees no later than 120 days 
     after the enactment of this Act on agent utilization and 
     overall staff resources dedicated to trafficking in fiscal 
     years 2010 through 2013. The report shall also include 
     details on the participation of FBI personnel in human 
     trafficking task forces.
       Implementation of 9/11 Commission recommendations.--This 
     Act includes $500,000 for a comprehensive external review of 
     the implementation of the recommendations related to the FBI 
     that were proposed in the report issued by the National 
     Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States 
     (commonly known as the ``9/11 Commission''). The scope of 
     this review shall include: (1) an assessment of progress 
     made, and challenges in implementing the recommendations of 
     the 9/11 Commission that are related to the FBI; (2) an 
     analysis of the FBI's response to trends of domestic terror 
     attacks since September 11, 2001, including the influence of 
     domestic radicalization; (3) an assessment of any evidence 
     now known to the FBI that was not considered by the 9/11 
     Commission related to any factors that contributed in any 
     manner to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001; and 
     (4) any additional recommendations with regard to FBI 
     intelligence sharing and counterterrorism policy. The FBI 
     shall submit a report to the Committees, no later than one 
     year after enactment of this Act, on the findings and 
     recommendations resulting from this review. The FBI is 
     encouraged, in carrying out this review, to draw upon the 
     experience of 9/11 Commissioners and staff.


                              CONSTRUCTION

       This Act includes $80,982,000 for FBI Construction.

                    Drug Enforcement Administration


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       This Act includes a direct appropriation of $2,050,904,000 
     for the salaries and expenses of the Drug Enforcement 
     Administration (DEA). In addition, the DEA expects to derive 
     $352,600,000 from fees deposited in the Diversion Control 
     Fund to carry out the Diversion Control Program.

          Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       This Act includes $1,153,345,000 for the salaries and 
     expenses of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and 
     Explosives (ATF).
       Gangs.--Within the amount provided, ATF is expected to 
     prioritize funding for its Violent Crime Impact Teams (VCIT), 
     which bring focused law enforcement attention to communities 
     plagued by gang violence. The ATF is directed to identify its 
     allocation for VCIT in its spending plan for fiscal year 
     2013.
       United States--Mexico firearms trafficking.--Support for 
     ATF's efforts to combat weapon trafficking on the border is 
     continued. As begun in fiscal year 2012, the ATF shall 
     continue to provide the Committees on Appropriations with 
     annual data on the total number of firearms recovered by the 
     Government of Mexico, and of those, the number for which an 
     ATF trace is attempted, the number successfully traced, the 
     number determined to be manufactured in the United States, 
     and the number determined to be imported into the United 
     States prior to being recovered in Mexico.
       Reprogramming requests.--It is noted that ATF has fallen 
     into a trend of submitting annual reprogramming requests to 
     the Committees on Appropriations seeking to transfer funds 
     from its Arson and Explosives Decision Unit to its Firearms 
     Decision Unit. ATF is directed to budget appropriately among 
     its decision units in order to eliminate the need for these 
     reprogramming requests.

                         Federal Prison SYstem


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

       This Act includes $6,820,217,000 for the salaries and 
     expenses of the Federal Prison System.
       Reentry research and reforms.--The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) 
     is directed to undertake a comprehensive analysis of its 
     policies and determine the reforms and best practices that 
     will help reduce costs and recidivism. The Director is 
     encouraged to share additional corrections data with outside 
     experts in order to build upon prior efforts.
       BOP contract confinement.--The safe, secure and humane 
     incarceration of Federal inmates is considered to be a 
     critical priority.Because contract prison beds will be a 
     necessary tool for managing a rapidly expanding Federal 
     inmate population for the foreseeable future, there is a 
     commitment to ensuring that inmates at such facilities are 
     housed appropriately. Therefore, the OIG is directed to 
     conduct a review of prison facilities operating under a 
     contract with BOP to ensure that such facilities meet all 
     appropriate standards. This review should also include a 
     description of BOP's efforts to monitor the performance of 
     contract prison facilities and recommendations for how BOP 
     could improve such efforts.
       Inmate literacy.--It is recommended that, given the 
     priority of increasing successful prisoner reentry programs 
     and the critical role community-based and volunteer literacy 
     programs can play in the transition from prison back into 
     society, BOP work with national organizations to identify and 
     describe these models, and develop appropriate replication 
     strategies.

[[Page S1306]]

                        BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES

       This Act includes $90,000,000 for the construction, 
     acquisition, modernization, maintenance and repair of prison 
     and detention facilities housing Federal inmates.
       Construction funding requests.--Due to inmate population 
     growth and overcrowding estimates, BOP is encouraged to 
     include funding for new prison construction in future 
     requests.
       Status of construction.--Previous conference agreements 
     have directed BOP to submit monthly status of construction 
     reports that include notifications of any deviations from the 
     construction and activation schedule identified in those 
     reports, including detailed explanations of the causes of 
     delays and actions proposed to address them. BOP's failure to 
     submit these reports in a timely manner has hindered the 
     Committees on Appropriations' ability to monitor and assess 
     BOP's needs. BOP is directed to collaborate and coordinate 
     with the Justice Management Division on methods that will 
     efficiently deliver these critical reports to the Committees 
     in a timely manner.
       Modernization and repair project backlog.--This Act 
     provides $66,965,000 to address critical modernization and 
     repair (M&R) projects in order to maintain and safely operate 
     Federal prison institutions. BOP has a current backlog of at 
     least 154 major M&R projects at an approximate cost of 
     $348,000,000, an estimation that does not include the 
     universe of unfunded minor repair and improvement projects 
     that are managed and prioritized at the regional level. BOP 
     is directed to include a project specific M&R spending plan, 
     along with a comprehensive report of the current M&R backlog, 
     in the Department's spending plan required by this Act.


   LIMITATION ON ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES, FEDERAL PRISON INDUSTRIES, 
                              INCORPORATED

       This Act includes a limitation on administrative expenses 
     of $2,700,000 for Federal Prison Industries, Incorporated.

               State and Local Law Enforcement Activities

       In total, this Act includes $2,264,218,000 for State and 
     local law enforcement and crime prevention programs.
       Spending plan.--The Department shall submit a spending plan 
     and related materials for the all of the programs funded 
     under this heading to the Committees on Appropriations not 
     later than 45 days after the enactment of this Act, along 
     with the overall spending plan required by this Act.
       Management and administration expenses.--Language included 
     in both the House report and the Senate report is 
     incorporated directing the Department, in preparation of its 
     fiscal year 2013 spending plan, to assess management and 
     administration (M&A) expenses against program funding. The 
     Department is directed to ensure that its assessment 
     methodology is equitable and, for programs funded through the 
     Crime Victims Fund, that the assessment reflects a fair 
     representation of the share of each program devoted to common 
     M&A costs. Grant offices are also directed to minimize 
     administrative spending in order to maximize the amount of 
     funding that can be used for grants or training and technical 
     assistance. In addition, the Department is directed to 
     detail, as part of its budget submission for fiscal year 2014 
     and future years, the actual costs for each grant office with 
     respect to training, technical assistance, research and 
     statistics, and peer review for the prior fiscal year, along 
     with estimates of planned expenditures by each grant office 
     in each of these categories for the current year and the 
     budget year.
       GAO findings on subgrantee efficiencies.--The Office on 
     Violence Against Women (OVW), the Office of Justice Programs 
     (OJP), and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services 
     (COPS) are directed to publicly disclose on each office's 
     website the names of any subgrantees associated with each 
     grant award, and to detail the purpose of each award in order 
     to mitigate duplication and to ensure transparency. DOJ is 
     also directed to heed the findings of GAO's 2012 Annual 
     Report: Opportunities to Reduce Duplication, Overlap and 
     Fragmentation, Achieve Savings, and Enhance Revenue and to 
     respond proactively in a timely manner.

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

       Research on violence against women.--``Honor violence'' is 
     a form of violence against women committed with the motive of 
     protecting or regaining the honor of the perpetrator, family 
     or community. There is currently a lack of statistical 
     information on the occurrence of honor violence in the United 
     States. Within the funds provided, OVW and the National 
     Institute of Justice (NIJ) are expected to study this matter 
     and recommend ways to determine the prevalence of honor 
     violence and recommend best practices for law enforcement and 
     service providers for prevention and response.

                       Office of Justice Programs

       The Department shall work closely with Congress to consider 
     seriously the modification of existing programs and omission 
     of outdated programs before new proposals and initiatives are 
     unveiled. The Department is urged to devise a proposal to 
     consolidate and eliminate ineffective grant programs by 
     outreach to Congress and emphasis on what works and what is 
     cost effective for the taxpayers' dollars.


                  RESEARCH, EVALUATION AND STATISTICS

       This Act includes $127,000,000 for the Research, Evaluation 
     and Statistics account. These funds are distributed as

       Spending plans.--The Department shall submit as part of its 
     spending plan for State and Local Law Enforcement Activities 
     a plan for the use of all funding administered by NIJ and the 
     Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), respectively.
       #DNA and forensics research and evaluation.--The fiscal 
     year 2013 budget request eliminates resources to assist with 
     critical forensics and DNA research and evaluation. Those 
     areas are vital components to maintaining and advancing 
     quality and proficiency within Federal, State, and local 
     crime laboratory facilities. Therefore, from within the 
     amounts provided for NIJ, OJP shall directly transfer 
     $5,000,000 to the National Institute of Standards and 
     Technology (NIST) Office of Law Enforcement Standards (OLES) 
     to support the continuation of the development of standards 
     and standard reference materials.

    TOTAL, State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance......   1,140,418
------------------------------------------------------------------------

       Veterans treatment courts.--This Act includes $4,000,000 to 
     establish a funding source specifically to support veterans 
     treatment courts. The Department is expected to work in 
     conjunction with the Department of Veterans Affairs, as 
     appropriate, to provide grant support for collaborative, 
     rehabilitative approaches for continuing judicial supervision 
     of offenders who are veterans.
       Economic, high-technology, and cyber crimes prevention.--
     This Act provides $9,000,000 to assist State and local law 
     enforcement agencies in the prevention, investigation, and 
     prosecution of economic, high-tech, and Internet crimes. 
     Given the importance of protecting our Nation's new 
     technologies, ideas, and products, OJP is directed to 
     increase its investment in competitive grants that help State 
     and local law enforcement tackle intellectual property (IP) 
     thefts, such as counterfeiting and piracy, to $3,700,000.
       Prescription drug monitoring.--This Act includes $7,000,000 
     for the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP). The 
     Bureau of Justice Assistance is urged to prioritize

[[Page S1307]]

     grant funding for states which have demonstrated a commitment 
     to interstate data sharing and which are moving towards 
     compliance with the recently adopted Prescription Monitoring 
     Information Exchange (PMIX) Architecture so that the goal of 
     50 interconnected States can be achieved through hub-to-hub 
     communication.
       Reentry.--It is expected that Second Chance Act funding 
     will support grants that foster the implementation of 
     strategies that have been proven to reduce recidivism and 
     ensure safe and successful reentry back to their communities 
     of adults released from prisons and jails, as well as grants 
     for demonstration projects designed to test the impact of new 
     strategies and frameworks. The Department is directed to 
     submit as part of its spending plan for State and Local Law 
     Enforcement Assistance a plan for the use of all funds 
     appropriated for Second Chance Act programs. It is expected 
     that such plan will designate funds for proven, evidence-
     based programs that will further the goal of maximizing 
     public safety, as well as for promising new approaches and 
     projects.
       Human trafficking.--This Act includes $13,500,000 for task 
     force activities and services for U.S. citizens, permanent 
     residents, and foreign nationals who are victims of 
     trafficking. It is expected that the human trafficking task 
     forces funded by the Department will continue to bring 
     together Federal, State and local law enforcement and work 
     closely with victim services organizations to investigate all 
     forms of human trafficking and assist the victims. OJP shall 
     consult with stakeholder groups in determining the overall 
     allocation of victims of trafficking funding, including with 
     respect to amounts allocated to assist foreign national 
     victims, and provide to the Committees on Appropriations a 
     plan for the use of these funds as part of the Department's 
     fiscal year 2013 spending plan.

       Missing and exploited children.--This Act provides 
     $67,000,000 for missing and exploited children programs, of 
     which not less than $29,000,000 shall be provided for task 
     force grants, training and technical assistance, research and 
     statistics, and administrative costs for the Internet Crimes 
     Against Children (ICAC) program.

     mentoring grants to help support the work of organizations 
     across the country in implementing programs that identify and 
     address the factors that can lead to delinquency or other 
     problem behaviors in at-risk or disadvantaged youth. 
     Mentoring for children in certain at-risk and disadvantaged 
     subgroups, including children who are in foster care, are 
     disabled, or are the children of incarcerated parents, is 
     particularly important.


                     PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICER BENEFITS

       This Act includes $78,300,000 for the Public Safety Officer 
     Benefits program for fiscal year 2013. Within the funds 
     provided, $62,000,000 is for death benefits for survivors, an

       COPS Hiring.--In the course of awarding grants for the COPS 
     Hiring program in fiscal year 2012, the Department reserved 
     10 percent of COPS Hiring funding for grants based on the 
     Department's ``high priorities.'' These set-aside grants were 
     awarded among a subgroup of applicants whose community 
     policing plans focused on high priority crime problems 
     identified by the Department only after all of the 
     applications had been reviewed. Applicant agencies isolated 
     into the 10 percent set-aside group had a significantly 
     higher chance of receiving a grant than the remainder of the 
     eligible applicants. According to the Department's own 
     statistics, applicants in the 90 percent pool had between an 
     eight and 14 percent chance of receiving an award, while 
     applicants selected for the 10 percent pool had a greater 
     than 70 percent chance of receiving an award. This 
     unnecessarily subjective grant award process is not 
     supported. In fiscal year 2013 and thereafter, the Department 
     will resume awarding grants to eligible agencies with the 
     highest total ranked scores, taking into account its 
     statutory mandates, and not attempt to run a parallel grant 
     program, the design of which creates the appearance of 
     favoritism.

               General Provisions--Department of Justice

       This Act includes the following general provisions for the 
     Department of Justice:
       Section 201 makes available additional reception and 
     representation funding for the Attorney General from the 
     amounts provided in this title.
       Section 202 prohibits the use of funds to pay for an 
     abortion, except in the case of rape or to preserve the life 
     of the mother.
       Section 203 prohibits the use of funds to require any 
     person to perform or facilitate the performance of an 
     abortion.
       Section 204 establishes the obligation of the Director of 
     the Bureau of Prisons to provide escort services to an inmate 
     receiving an abortion outside of a Federal facility, except 
     where this obligation conflicts with the preceding section.
       Section 205 establishes requirements and procedures for 
     transfer proposals.
       Section 206 authorizes the Attorney General to extend an 
     ongoing Personnel Management Demonstration Project.
       Section 207 permanently extends specified authorities to 
     the ATF for undercover operations.
       Section 208 prohibits the use of funds for transporting 
     prisoners classified as maximum or high security, other than 
     to a facility certified by the BOP as appropriately secure.
       Section 209 prohibits the use of funds for the purchase or 
     rental by Federal prisons of audiovisual or electronic media 
     or equipment, services and materials used primarily for 
     recreational purposes, except for those items and services 
     needed for inmate training, religious or educational 
     purposes.
       Section 210 requires review by the Deputy Attorney General 
     and the Department Investment Review Board prior to the 
     obligation or expenditure of funds for major information 
     technology projects.
       Section 211 requires the Department to follow reprogramming 
     procedures prior to any deviation from the program amounts 
     specified in this title or the reuse of specified deobligated 
     funds provided in previous years.

[[Page S1308]]

Section 212 prohibits the use of funds for A -76 competitions for work 
             performed by employees of the BOP or FPI, Inc.

       Section 213 prohibits U.S. Attorneys from holding 
     additional responsibilities that exempt U.S. Attorneys from 
     statutory residency requirements.
       Section 214 permits up to 3 percent of grant and 
     reimbursement program funds made available to OJP to be used 
     for training and technical assistance; permits up to 2 
     percent of grant funds made available to that office to be 
     used for criminal justice research, evaluation and statistics 
     by NIJ and BJS; and directs that of such amounts transferred 
     to NIJ and BJS, $1,300,000 shall be transferred to the BOP. 
     In light of the resurgence of methamphetamine production and 
     trafficking, language included in the House report is 
     reaffirmed encouraging OJP and COPS to support 
     methamphetamine training and technical assistance initiatives 
     that advance problem-solving strategies to combat 
     methamphetamine, and which demonstrate the capacity to have a 
     national impact through direct training and the distribution 
     of information and resources.
       Section 215 gives the Attorney General the authority to 
     waive matching requirements for Second Chance Act adult and 
     juvenile reentry demonstration projects; State, tribal and 
     local reentry courts; drug treatment programs; and prison 
     rape elimination programs.
       Section 216 waives the requirement that the Attorney 
     General reserve certain funds from amounts provided for 
     offender incarceration.
       Section 217 prohibits funds, other than funds for the 
     national instant criminal background check system established 
     under the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, from being 
     used to facilitate the transfer of an operable firearm to a 
     known or suspected agent of a drug cartel where law 
     enforcement personnel do not continuously monitor or control 
     such firearm.
       Section 218 places limitations on the obligation of funds 
     from certain Department of Justice accounts and funding 
     sources.
       This Act does not include section 218 of H.R. 5326 of the 
     112th Congress. It is important to eliminate barriers to the 
     use of pools in compliance with the Americans with 
     Disabilities Act (ADA) while also appropriately minimizing 
     the regulatory burden on pool owners and operators. The 
     Department is directed to continue its current policy of not 
     enforcing the fixed elements requirement of the 2010 ADA 
     Standards for Accessible Design against owners or operators 
     who purchased portable lifts for existing pools prior to 
     March 15, 2012, as long as the portable lift is kept in 
     position for use at the pool, is operational at all times 
     that the pool is open, and otherwise complies with the 
     requirements of the 2010 Standards. The Department also is 
     expected to consider ways to further minimize the burden on 
     pool owners and operators, including in the way it makes 
     determinations about readily achievable compliance actions, 
     while still adhering to the requirements of the ADA.

     Science and Technology Council, is affirmed, and its goals 
     and activities are strongly supported. In addition, OSTP is 
     encouraged to work with all relevant stakeholders to consider 
     how incentives could hasten the development of new prevention 
     and treatment options for neurological diseases and 
     disorders, and to recommend options for such incentives.

       SLS vehicle development.--Support for NASA's evolvable SLS 
     development approach, which will provide a 70 ton SLS 
     configuration by 2017 and build to a 130 ton configuration as 
     work is completed on an upper stage and advanced booster 
     system, is reiterated. However, NASA is urged to identify and 
     implement ways to accelerate the schedule for the attainment 
     of the 130 ton configuration. To enable better congressional 
     oversight of NASA's progress, language from the House report 
     regarding requirements for quarterly SLS funding reports is 
     adopted by reference.
       EGS.--It is noted that EGS funds are intended for SLS-
     related ground operations. Additional funding for non-SLS 
     ground operations activities is provided under the ``Space 
     Operations'' heading.
       Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV) funding.--A total 
     of $1,200,310,000 is for the Orion MPCV, which is to be 
     launched on the SLS in furtherance of NASA's beyond Earth 
     orbit exploration goals and to provide an alternate means of 
     emergency access to the International Space Station (ISS). 
     Within the amounts provided for the Orion MPCV, 
     $1,197,000,000 is provided under the ``Exploration'' heading. 
     This funding level is sufficient for NASA to meet all 
     upcoming Orion MPCV milestones, including a planned flight 
     test in 2014.
       Similar to the SLS, the distribution of Orion MPCV funds 
     across budget accounts has changed from fiscal year 2012. The 
     chart below displays all Orion MPCV funding in both the 
     fiscal year 2012 appropriations structure and the fiscal year 
     2013 appropriations structure.

       Cost caps.--The human exploration program should be managed 
     under cost caps based on NASA's analysis and the completed 
     Independent Cost Assessment (ICA). Within 60 days of the 
     enactment of this Act, NASA shall report to the Committees on 
     Appropriations on planned milestones; expected performance 
     and configurations; planned ground and flight testing 
     programs; and deliverables for SLS, EGS and the Orion MPCV. 
     As part of this report, NASA shall validate the funding 
     levels established by the ICA for SLS, EGS and the Orion MPCV 
     as potential cost caps through fiscal year 2017 or recommend 
     and justify alternate cost caps for each program element.
       Exploration destinations and goals.--Language from the 
     House report regarding mission goals for the test flights of 
     SLS and the Orion MPCV currently scheduled for 2017 and 2021 
     is adopted by reference.
       Commercial crew.--$525,000,000 is for the Commercial Crew 
     Program (CCP). This funding, which will support the 
     continuation of the Commercial Crew Integrated Capability 
     (CCiCap) phase and the awarding of Certification Products 
     Contracts, is intended to promote the safest, fastest and 
     most cost-effective reestablishment of a domestic means of 
     access to the ISS.
       It is expected that CCP activity beyond the CCiCap base 
     period will be funded via Federal Acquisition Regulation--
     based contracts and that NASA will take all necessary steps 
     to ensure that these contracts can be smoothly awarded with 
     minimal disruption to programmatic progress. NASA is also 
     expected to maintain rigorous oversight of the program and 
     its private sector partners to ensure that all necessary 
     safety standards are being met and all appropriate safeguards 
     for taxpayer interests are being implemented.


                            SPACE OPERATIONS

       This Act includes $3,953,000,000 for Space Operations.
       ISS.--$2,958,000,000 is for ISS operations, research and 
     cargo supply and adopts, by reference, language from the 
     Senate report regarding satellite servicing activities.
       Language in the House report requiring NASA to provide a 
     report on options for short-term emergency access to the ISS 
     is adopted by reference. This report shall be provided no 
     later than 120 days after the enactment of this Act.
       Launch services.--Concern remains about potential shortages 
     in both the small- and medium-class launch vehicle markets. 
     Such shortages would threaten both the schedules and budgets 
     for NASA science missions. NASA is directed to continue 
     monitoring its options in both markets and to ensure that 
     management plans for projects in these classes appropriately 
     reflect the risks resulting from uncertainty in launch 
     vehicle availability and pricing.
       Space and Flight Support.--$925,000,000 is for Space and 
     Flight Support, including the full requested level for 
     Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System replacement and the 
     21st Century Space Launch Complex (21CSLC) program. The 
     21CSLC funds are available for the modification and 
     modernization of launch infrastructure not exclusively used 
     for SLS, including NASA-owned facilities for launch vehicles 
     serving NASA missions and facilities scheduled to launch 
     cargo to the ISS.
       Language from the House report regarding strategic planning 
     for upgrades and modernization of the Wallops Flight Facility 
     is adopted by reference.


                               EDUCATION

       This Act includes $125,000,000 for Education.

     for the National Space Grant College program, and $18,000,000 
     is for the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive 
     Research (EPSCoR). Language from the Senate report regarding 
     the distribution of Space Grant funding to states and 
     jurisdictions is not adopted.
       Informal education.--$10,000,000 is for a competitive grant 
     program to fund informal education programs that develop STEM 
     education activities, including exhibits, at qualifying 
     institutions as described in section 616 of the NASA 
     Authorization Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-155), and/or at 
     NASA Visitors Centers.
       K-12 STEM education and youth service organizations.--It is 
     noted that NASA's Office of Education, mission directorates 
     and centers are involved in multiple efforts to engage K-12 
     students in STEM-related activities and competitions, in 
     order to help encourage students to pursue future STEM-
     related studies and careers. Much of NASA's work in this area 
     has been accomplished through partnerships with youth service 
     organizations, including those with a nationwide footprint. 
     These efforts both augment and leverage the resources and 
     reach of these organizations, helping to bring practical STEM 
     applications to a wider group of young participants. NASA is 
     commended for these efforts, which are an effective way to 
     help build a strong and vibrant future STEM workforce, which 
     in turn helps ensure a strong, globally competitive U.S. 
     economy. NASA is directed, within funds provided both in this 
     account and throughout the NASA budget, to expand the 
     agency's K-12 STEM education efforts with youth service 
     organizations and to report to the Committees on 
     Appropriations within 180 days of enactment on these efforts.

     cybersecurity is adopted by reference.
       Comprehensive independent assessment.--Language from the 
     House report regarding NASA's response to a comprehensive 
     independent assessment of the agency conducted by the 
     National Research Council is adopted by reference.


       CONSTRUCTION AND ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE AND RESTORATION

       This Act includes $680,000,000 for Construction and 
     Environmental Compliance and Restoration. Within the amounts 
     provided, $60,000,000 is for Environmental Compliance and 
     Restoration, $329,200,000 is for Institutional Construction 
     of Facilities (CoF) and $265,710,000 is for Exploration CoF, 
     including $3,310,000 for the Orion MPCV and $142,000,000 for 
     SLS-related test facilities.


                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

       This Act includes $38,000,000 for the Office of Inspector 
     General.


                       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS

       This Act includes the following administrative provisions 
     for NASA:
        a provision that makes funds for announced prizes 
     available without fiscal year limitation until the prize is 
     claimed or the offer is withdrawn;
        a provision that establishes terms and conditions 
     for the transfer of funds;
        a provision that subjects the NASA spending plan 
     and specified changes to that spending plan to reprogramming 
     procedures under section 505 of this Act; and
        a provision that allows NASA to retain within its 
     Working Capital Fund refunds or rebates received through 
     NASA's credit card programs.

                      National Science Foundation


                    RESEARCH AND RELATED ACTIVITIES

       This Act includes $5,983,280,000 for Research and Related 
     Activities (R&RA).
       Program priorities.--NSF's proposed R&RA termination and 
     reduction proposals are incorporated as described in the 
     House report.
       Advanced manufacturing.--Language in the House report 
     regarding advanced manufacturing is adopted by reference.
       Cybersecurity research.--Language from the Senate report 
     regarding cybersecurity research is adopted by reference.
       Innovation Corps (I-Corps).--Language from the House report 
     regarding the I-Corps program is adopted by reference. If NSF 
     determines that the directive contained in that language 
     cannot be practically enforced for any specific I-Corps 
     grant, NSF is directed to immediately report that 
     determination, along with an explanation, to the Committees 
     on Appropriations. NSF is expected to make all necessary 
     efforts to ensure that exceptions to the directive are 
     avoided to the maximum extent possible.
       Cross-Foundation initiatives.--Limits on the implementation 
     of OneNSF initiatives as proposed in the Senate report are 
     not included because there is value in the further 
     development of interdisciplinary research activities. 
     However, future growth in interdisciplinary research should 
     not come at the expense of adequate support for 
     infrastructure and core research programs in each of NSF's 
     individual scientific disciplines. NSF is urged to assess and 
     refine the balance among these activities in its budget 
     request for fiscal year 2014 and future years.
       Astronomy.--$247,550,000 is for astronomical sciences, 
     including $164,890,000 for infrastructure. Within the 
     infrastructure portfolio, NSF shall fund pre-construction 
     planning and research resources at the budget request level 
     and allocate the remaining funds to observatories. To the 
     extent that increases in infrastructure spending require a 
     reduction in the research budget, those reductions should 
     come from the planned increases for the Enhancing Access to 
     the Radio Spectrum program.
       No limitations are placed on the implementation of the 
     Telescope System Instrumentation Plan, and no action or 
     statement herein regarding the Division of Astronomical 
     Sciences (AST) should be construed as an expression of 
     opinion regarding AST's recently concluded portfolio review, 
     which has yet to be submitted to the Congress for 
     consideration.
       EPSCoR.--$158,190,000 is for EPSCoR.

     and Facilities Construction.


                     EDUCATION AND HUMAN RESOURCES

       This Act includes $895,610,000 for Education and Human 
     Resources (EHR).
       Program terminations and reductions.--NSF's proposed EHR 
     termination and reduction proposals as described in the House 
     report are incorporated, with the exception of NSF's proposal 
     to reduce the Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) 
     program. AISL shall be funded as described in the Senate 
     report.
       Broadening participation programs.--Funding for the 
     Historically Black Colleges and Universities Undergraduate 
     Program, the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority 
     Participation, the Tribal Colleges and Universities Program 
     and Centers for Research Excellence in Science and Technology 
     is incorporated, as described in the Senate report.
       Advanced Technological Education (ATE).--An increase of 
     $5,000,000 above the request for ATE is included, as 
     described in the House report. NSF shall choose an offset to 
     accommodate this increase from among the EHR programs not 
     otherwise described in this statement.
       Best practices in K-12 STEM education.--Adopted, by 
     reference, is language from the House report on the

     K-12 STEM Education: Identifying Effective Approaches in 
     Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
       Federal Cyber Service: Scholarships for Service.--Adopted, 
     by reference, is language from the Senate report regarding 
     the Federal Cyber Service: Scholarships for Service program.


                 AGENCY OPERATIONS AND AWARD MANAGEMENT

       This Act includes $299,400,000 for Agency Operations and 
     Award Management.
       Follow-up on OIG findings.--NSF management responses to 
     recommendations of the OIG, particularly those regarding 
     workforce management and construction contingency funding, 
     have been inadequate. NSF is directed to provide the report 
     described in the Senate report within 30 days of the 
     enactment of this Act and to provide updates to that report 
     on a semiannual basis.
       NSF headquarters.--The requested amount for expenses 
     associated with the expiration of NSF's headquarters lease is 
     provided.


                  OFFICE OF THE NATIONAL SCIENCE BOARD

                        ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISION

       This Act includes a provision that establishes terms and 
     conditions for the transfer of funds.

                                TITLE IV

                            RELATED AGENCIES

                       Commission on Civil Rights


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

       This Act includes $9,400,000 for the Commission on Civil 
     Rights.
       Improving oversight.--Language is continued that was first 
     included in fiscal year 2012 establishing an inspector 
     general (IG) function for the Commission on Civil Rights and 
     providing that the function will be carried out by the 
     individual holding the position of IG at the Government 
     Accountability Office (GAO). The IG is tasked with the duties 
     and responsibilities specified in the Inspector General Act 
     of 1978, including conducting audits and reviews of 
     Commission programs, finances and personnel.
       Funding is provided for these operations in the amount of 
     $450,000 by direct transfer to the Office of Inspector 
     General of the GAO. This amount is $200,000 above the request 
     and the enacted level. The GAO IG was unable to fulfill the 
     statutory requirements for its role as IG for the Commission 
     within the amounts provided in fiscal year 2012. Accordingly, 
     the resources available to the IG have been increased. Also 
     included is language providing the IG flexibility in 
     submitting statutorily required reports so the IG can focus 
     its efforts on more substantive oversight issues. With these 
     additional resources and flexibility, the IG is expected to 
     conduct vigorous oversight of the Commission. The IG also is 
     expected to consult with the Committees on Appropriations 
     before exercising this new authority.
       Vacancies.--The findings of the IG's recent report on 
     management and performance challenges are concerning. In 
     particular, the Commission has not had a permanent staff 
     director since January 2011 and has not had an acting staff 
     director since April 2012. In addition, the Commission has 
     dozens of other vacant positions, many of which have been 
     unfilled for years. Many other staff have multiple titles and 
     responsibilities. The Commission is directed to examine its 
     staffing structure, realign positions, as appropriate, based 
     on available resources, and report the results to the 
     Committees on Appropriations within 90 days of enactment of 
     this Act. This report is expected to include details on 
     staffing at the Commission's regional offices, as well as an 
     assessment of the role of these offices in carrying out the 
     work of the Commission.

                Equal Employment Opportunity Commission


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       This Act includes $370,000,000 for the Equal Employment 
     Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Up to $29,500,000 shall be 
     available for payments to State and local enforcement 
     agencies to ensure that the EEOC provides adequate resources 
     to its State and local partners.
       Strategic plan.--EEOC is expected to use its resources to 
     implement the strategic objectives identified in the EEOC's 
     2012-2016 strategic plan; specifically: combating employment 
     discrimination through strategic law enforcement, preventing 
     employment discrimination through education and outreach, and 
     delivering excellent and consistent service.
       EEOC is directed to report to the Committees on 
     Appropriations within 60 days of the enactment of this Act on 
     the steps it has taken to reach the fiscal year 2012 goals 
     set forth in the strategic plan, whether those goals were 
     achieved, and, if not, an explanation of why those goals were 
     not achieved. Many of the strategies and measures outlined in 
     the strategic plan are multi-year efforts, and EEOC is 
     expected to provide an

[[Page S1311]]

     analysis of the impact the strategies will have in subsequent 
     years. As noted in the Senate report, there is particular 
     interest in seeing the results of discussions surrounding 
     intake and charge management in the private sector process 
     and the development of a new case management system in the 
     Federal sector process.
       In creating the strategic plan, the EEOC sought the input 
     of all members of the EEOC workforce, in addition to the 
     agency's leadership, and solicited and received comments from 
     a wide range of stakeholders and the public. Therefore, it is 
     expected that these invested stakeholders will be active and 
     constructive partners in the plan's implementation by EEOC.
       Age discrimination.--Section 540 of H.R. 5326 of the 112th 
     Congress regarding an EEOC rule on age discrimination is not 
     included. There is concern that EEOC did not conduct a 
     thorough analysis of this rule's impact on small business. 
     Therefore, notwithstanding the EEOC's determination under 
     section 605(b) of title 5, United States Code, no later than 
     90 days after enactment of this Act, EEOC shall conduct an 
     analysis equivalent to that required under section 604 of 
     such title and provide the analysis to the Committees on 
     Appropriations as well as to the public. The EEOC shall 
     consult with the Committees on Appropriations prior to 
     undertaking this analysis. This requirement shall not 
     interfere with implementation of the rule.
       Guidance on criminal background checks.--Section 544 of 
     H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress is not included. The EEOC 
     recently finalized new guidance regarding the use of criminal 
     record checks, without regard for a directive proposed by the 
     Senate that such guidance should be circulated for public 
     comment at least six months before adoption. The EEOC is 
     directed to report to the Committees on Appropriations within 
     120 days of enactment of this Act detailing the steps it has 
     taken to alleviate confusion about the new guidance.

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       This Act includes $83,000,000 for the International Trade 
     Commission.

                       Legal Services Corporation


               PAYMENT TO THE LEGAL SERVICES CORPORATION

       This Act includes $365,000,000 for the Legal Services 
     Corporation (LSC).
       Pro bono task force.--It is encouraging that the LSC 
     launched a pro bono task force, which released its report 
     this fall. The LSC is urged to implement the recommendations 
     as it continues to work with grantees to adopt measures aimed 
     at increasing the involvement of private attorneys in the 
     delivery of legal services to their clients.
       Pro bono innovation program.--The pro bono task force's 
     recommendation for the creation of a pro bono innovation 
     program is encouraging, and LSC believes it has authority 
     under the Legal Services Corporation Act to establish this 
     program. LSC is directed to submit a reprogramming request to 
     the Committees on Appropriations before starting the program.
       Headquarters management.--Language is incorporated from the 
     Senate report regarding LSC headquarters' efforts to incite 
     stakeholders into actively lobbying Congress on budget issues 
     with Federal dollars appropriated to headquarters. The 
     funding expended in these efforts may be better used towards 
     providing services to those in need of LSC counseling in the 
     field. LSC is directed to re-examine its headquarters 
     structure and identify areas of duplication for consolidation 
     or elimination in an effort to provide a more efficient and 
     cost-saving structure, and send more funding to those in the 
     field in need of LSC services. LSC shall report these 
     findings to the Committees on Appropriations within 90 days 
     of enactment of this Act.


         ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS--LEGAL SERVICES CORPORATION

       Unauthorized uses of funds.--The Inspector General of the 
     LSC is encouraged to conduct annual audits of LSC grantees to 
     ensure that funds are not being used in contravention of the 
     restrictions on engaging in political activities or any of 
     the other restrictions by which LSC grantees are required to 
     abide. The removal of funds from any LSC grantee determined 
     by the Inspector General to have engaged in unauthorized 
     political activity is recommended.
       Allocation of basic field grants.--Language, modified from 
     H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress, making a technical change to 
     the allocation formula for basic field grants is included. 
     The Departments of Commerce, Justice, and State, the 
     Judiciary, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1996 
     (Public Law 104-134) required that the allocation for 
     grantees in each geographic area be based on poverty 
     statistics from the ``most recent decennial census.'' The 
     Census Bureau has since stopped collecting poverty data in 
     the decennial census and instead collects those data in the 
     American Community Survey (ACS). The recommended language 
     alters the formula to reflect this shift. Since ACS data are 
     released more frequently, the language allows reallocation of 
     funding every three years. The language also provides a two-
     year phase in of the changes. The phase in, which was not 
     included in H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress, allows grantees 
     to adjust more easily to changes in funding allocations. It 
     is disappointing that LSC waited until the fiscal year 2013 
     budget request to seek this change, long after it was known 
     that these data would no longer be made available in the 
     decennial census.

     otherwise provided under existing law or existing Executive 
     Order issued pursuant to existing law.
       Section 504 provides that if any provision of this Act or 
     the application of such provision to any person or 
     circumstance shall be held invalid, the remainder of the Act 
     and the application of other provisions shall not be

     creates or initiates a new program, project or activity; (2) 
     eliminates a program, project, or activity; (3) increases 
     funds or personnel by any means for any project or activity

     on Appropriations are notified 15 days in advance of such 
     reprogramming of funds. Language is included requiring the

     advance of any such reprogramming.
       Section 506 provides that if it is determined that any 
     person intentionally affixes a ``Made in America'' label to

     not be eligible to receive any contract or subcontract with 
     funds made available in this Act. The section further 
     provides that to the extent practicable, with respect to

       Section 507 requires quarterly reporting to Congress on the

     except for restrictions which are not applied equally to all 
     tobacco or tobacco products of the same type. This provision 
     is not intended to impact routine international trade 
     services to all U.S. citizens, including the processing of 
     applications to establish foreign trade zones.

     deposited into the Crime Victims Fund in excess of 
     $730,000,000 until the following fiscal year.
       Section 511 prohibits the use of Department of Justice

     programs.
       Section 512 prohibits the transfer of funds in the Act to

     to authorities provided in, this Act or any other 
     appropriations Act.

[[Page S1312]]

     clear that trace data cannot be used to draw broad 
     conclusions about firearms-related crimes.
       Section 515 requires certain timetables of audits performed 
     by Inspectors General of the Departments of Commerce and 
     Justice, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 
     the National Science Foundation, and the Legal Services 
     Corporation and sets limits and restrictions on the awarding 
     and use of grants or contracts funded by amounts appropriated 
     by this Act.
       Section 516 prohibits funds for information technology 
     acquisitions unless the acquiring department or agency has 
     assessed the risk of cyber-espionage or sabotage. Any 
     acquisition of information technology produced by entities 
     that are owned, directed, or subsidized by the People's 
     Republic of China must be preceded by a determination that 
     the acquisition is in the national interest. Each department 
     or agency covered under section 516 shall submit a quarterly

     the Senate describing assessments made pursuant to this 
     section and any associated findings or determinations of

     Internet websites direct links to the Internet websites of 
     their Offices of Inspectors General, and a mechanism by which 
     individuals may anonymously report cases of waste, fraud or 
     abuse.
       Section 525 prohibits contracts or grant awards in excess 
     of $5,000,000 unless the prospective contractor or grantee 
     certifies that the organization has filed all Federal tax 
     returns, has not been convicted of a criminal offense under 
     the IRS Code of 1986, and has no unpaid Federal tax

                             (RESCISSIONS)

       Section 526 provides for rescissions of unobligated

     the Federal Prison System, Buildings and Facilities account 
     rescinds all remaining balances associated with the ``Acquire 
     Existing Institution for Higher Security FCI'' project. With 
     respect to rescissions of unobligated balances from the 
     Office on Violence Against Women, the Office of Justice 
     Programs and the Office of Community Oriented Policing 
     Services, it is expected that rescissions will be from grant 
     deobligations and recoveries.
       Section 527 prohibits the use of funds in this Act in a 
     manner that is inconsistent with the principal negotiating 
     objective of the United States with respect to trade remedy 
     laws.
       Section 528 prohibits the use of funds in this Act for the 
     purchase of first class or premium air travel.
       Section 529 prohibits the use of funds to pay for the

     Aeronautics and Space Administration or the Office of Science 
     and Technology Policy to engage in bilateral activities with 
     China or a Chinese-owned company unless the activities are 
     authorized by subsequent legislation or NASA or OSTP have 
     made a certification pursuant to subsections (c) and (d) of 
     this section.

     being used to deny the importation of shotgun models if no 
     application for the importation of such models, in the same

     the basis that the shotgun was not particularly suitable for 
     or readily adaptable to sporting purposes.
       Section 539 prohibits the use of funds to establish or 
     maintain a computer network that does not block pornography, 
     except for law enforcement purposes.
       Section 540 prohibits funds made available by this Act from 
     being used to enter into a contract, memorandum of

     to, or provide a loan or loan guarantee to, any corporation 
     that was convicted of a felony criminal violation under any 
     Federal law within the preceding 24 months, unless an agency 
     has considered suspension or debarment of the corporation and 
     has made a determination that this further action is not 
     necessary to protect the interests of the government.
       Section 541 prohibits funds made available by this Act from 
     being used to enter into a contract, memorandum of 
     understanding, or cooperative agreement with, make a grant 
     to, or provide a loan or loan guarantee to, any corporation 
     that has any unpaid Federal tax liability that has been 
     assessed, for which all judicial and administrative remedies 
     have been exhausted or have lapsed, and that is not being 
     paid in a timely manner pursuant to an agreement with the 
     authority responsible for collecting the tax liability, 
     unless an agency has considered suspension or debarment of 
     the corporation and has made a determination that this 
     further action is not necessary to protect the interests of 
     the government.
       Section 542 prohibits funds made available by this Act from 
     being used to pay the salaries of an employee of the 
     Department of Commerce to use amounts in the Fisheries 
     Enforcement Asset Forfeiture Fund of NOAA for any purposes 
     other than specified in the law.
       Section 540 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress regarding 
     an EEOC rule on age discrimination is not included. Direction 
     to EEOC on this subject is provided under title IV of this 
     statement.
       Section 542 from S. 2323 of the 112th Congress regarding 
     vehicle fleets is not included. Instead, all agencies and 
     departments funded under this Act are directed to send to the 
     Committees on Appropriations, at the end of the fiscal year, 
     a report containing a complete inventory of the total number 
     of vehicles owned, permanently retired, and purchased during 
     fiscal year 2013 as well as the total cost of the vehicle 
     fleet, including maintenance, fuel, storage, purchasing, and 
     leasing.
       Section 543 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress regarding 
     fisheries catch shares is not included. Instead, direction to 
     NOAA on this subject is included under title I of this 
     statement.
       Section 544 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress regarding 
     EEOC guidance on criminal records is not included. Direction 
     to EEOC on this subject is provided under title IV of this 
     statement.
       Section 545 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress, which 
     prohibits the Census Bureau from enforcing section 13 U.S.C. 
     221(a) regarding the American Community Survey is not 
     included. Instead, direction to the Census Bureau and the 
     Department of Commerce regarding these activities is included 
     under title I of this statement.
       Section 546 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress is not 
     included. Direction to the Department of Justice on Operation 
     Fast and Furious is provided under the Department of Justice, 
     General Administration heading under title II of this 
     statement.
       Section 549 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress regarding 
     certain court settlements is not included. On February 9, 
     2012, the Department of Justice announced that the Federal 
     government, along with 49 State attorneys general, reached a 
     landmark $25,000,000,000 settlement with the nation's five 
     largest banks. It is recognized that investors in mortgage-
     backed securities (MBS) were excluded from negotiations with 
     respect to the settlement, and are concerned about the effect 
     the settlement will have on their interests. MBS investors 
     include State retirement systems, 401(k) plans, public and 
     private pension plans, insurance company annuities, and 
     mutual funds. Because the details of the settlement agreement 
     will likely never be known to the public, the Department of 
     Justice is directed to study both the efforts of the five 
     largest banks to comply with the settlement and the impact of 
     the settlement on the revenue of MBS trusts, and submit a 
     report to the Committees on its findings not later than one 
     year after the date of enactment of this Act.
       Section 553 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress regarding 
     the National Ocean Policy is not included. Instead, direction 
     to NOAA regarding these activities is included under title I 
     of this statement.
       Section 554 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress regarding 
     vehicle efficiency standards is not included. The departments 
     and agencies funded under this Act are expected to adhere to 
     the guidance of Presidential Memorandum--Federal Fleet 
     Performance,

[[Page S1313]]

     dated May 24, 2011, and to notify the Committees on 
     Appropriations regarding any vehicle leases or purchases that 
     are not in accordance with that guidance.
       Section 562 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress regarding 
     turtle excluder devices is not included. Instead, direction 
     to NOAA regarding this issue is included under title I of 
     this statement.
       Section 564 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress regarding 
     the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Climate Change 
     Education (CCE) program is not included. However, within the 
     amounts provided to NSF in title III of this Act, NSF shall 
     spend no more than $3,130,000 on CCE.
       Section 565 from H.R. 5326 of the 112th Congress regarding 
     NSF's political science program is not included. As part of 
     the spending plan required by this Act, NSF is directed to 
     provide: (1) a detailed description of how the agency 
     proposes to allocate funds among the various NSF 
     directorates, divisions and programs; (2) a justification for 
     how this proposed allocation of funds appropriately reflects 
     national scientific and policy priorities; and (3) a 
     discussion of the relative contributions of various 
     scientific disciplines to innovation, economic growth and 
     national security.

       References in Division C to ``conferees'' are deemed to be 
     references to the Committees on Appropriations of the House 
     of Representatives and the Senate, and references to the 
     ``conference agreement'' are deemed to be references to the 
     Department of Defense Appropriations Act.

       DIVISION C--DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2013

       The conference agreement on the Department of Defense 
     Appropriations Act, 2013, incorporates some of the provisions 
     of both the House and the Senate versions of the bill. The 
     language and allocations set forth in House Report 112-493 
     and Senate Report 112-196 shall be complied with unless 
     specifically addressed to the contrary in the accompanying 
     bill and explanatory statement.


              DEFINITION OF PROGRAM, PROJECT, AND ACTIVITY

       The conferees agree that for the purposes of the Balanced 
     Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (Public Law 
     99-177), as amended by the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
     Deficit Control Reaffirmation Act of 1987 (Public Law 100-
     119) and by the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990 (Public Law 
     101-508), the terms ``program, project, and activity'' for 
     appropriations contained in this Act shall be defined as the 
     most specific level of budget items identified in the 
     Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2013, the related 
     classified annexes and explanatory statements, and the P-1 
     and R-1 budget justification documents as subsequently 
     modified by congressional action. The following exception to 
     the above definition shall apply: for the military personnel 
     and the operation and maintenance accounts, for which the 
     term ``program, project, and activity'' is defined as the 
     appropriations accounts contained in the Department of 
     Defense Appropriations Act.
       At the time the President submits the budget for fiscal 
     year 2014, the Department of Defense is directed to transmit 
     to the congressional defense committees budget justification 
     documents to be known as the ``M-1'' and ``O-1'' which shall 
     identify, at the budget activity, activity group, and sub-
     activity group level, the amounts requested by the President 
     to be appropriated to the Department of Defense for military 
     personnel and operation and maintenance in any budget 
     request, or amended budget request, for fiscal year 2014.
       In carrying out any Presidential sequestration, the 
     Department of Defense and related agencies shall conform to 
     the definition for ``program, project, and activity'' set 
     forth above except that military personnel accounts will be 
     exempt from sequestration per the notification made by the 
     Director of the Office of Management and Budget on July 31, 
     2012.


                            CLASSIFIED ANNEX

       Adjustments to classified programs are addressed in the 
     accompanying classified annex.


                  CONGRESSIONAL SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS

       Items for which additional funds have been provided as 
     shown in the project level tables or in paragraphs using the 
     phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' are congressional special 
     interest items for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming 
     (DD Form 1414). Each of these items must be carried on the DD 
     Form 1414 at the stated amount, as specifically addressed in 
     the explanatory statement.


                         REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE

       The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to continue 
     to follow the reprogramming guidance for acquisition accounts 
     as specified in the report accompanying the House version of 
     the fiscal year 2008 Department of Defense Appropriations 
     bill (House Report 110-279). For operation and maintenance 
     accounts, the Department of Defense shall continue to follow 
     the reprogramming guidelines specified in the conference 
     report accompanying H.R. 3222, the Department of Defense 
     Appropriations Act, 2008. The dollar threshold for 
     reprogramming funds shall remain at $15,000,000 for operation 
     and maintenance; $20,000,000 for procurement; and $10,000,000 
     for research, development, test and evaluation.
       Also, the conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense 
     (Comptroller) to continue to provide the congressional 
     defense committees annual DD Form 1416 reports for titles I 
     and II and quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports 
     for service and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of 
     this Act. Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with 
     guidance specified in the explanatory statement accompanying 
     the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006. The 
     Department shall continue to follow the limitation that prior 
     approval reprogrammings are set at either the specified 
     dollar threshold or 20 percent of the procurement or 
     research, development, test and evaluation line, whichever is 
     less. These thresholds are cumulative from the base for 
     reprogramming value as modified by any adjustments. 
     Therefore, if the combined value of transfers into or out of 
     an operation and maintenance (O-1), a procurement (P-1), or a 
     research, development, test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds 
     the identified threshold, the Department of Defense must 
     submit a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional 
     defense committees. In addition, guidelines on the 
     application of prior approval reprogramming procedures for 
     congressional special interest items are established 
     elsewhere in this statement.


                           FUNDING INCREASES

       The funding increases outlined in the tables for each 
     appropriation account shall be provided only for the specific 
     purposes indicated in the tables.


          SHIP MODERNIZATION, OPERATIONS AND SUSTAINMENT FUND

       As detailed in House Report 112-493 and Senate Report 112-
     196, the conferees remain concerned with the Navy's proposal 
     to prematurely retire capable and relevant ships with over 
     100 years of remaining service life following an initial 
     investment of no less than $11,600,000,000 in current fiscal 
     year 2012 dollars.
       Therefore, the conferees recommend denying these proposed 
     retirements and direct the Secretary of the Navy to retain 
     this force structure in its entirety. The conferees recommend 
     full funding, as identified by the Navy, to man, operate, 
     sustain, upgrade, and modernize only CG-63, CG-64, CG-65, CG-
     66, CG-68, CG-69, CG-73, LSD-41, and LSD-46 in the ``Ship 
     Modernization, Operations and Sustainment Fund'', as 
     specified elsewhere in this conference agreement. The 
     conferees recommend full funding for all known requirements 
     only for these specific platforms for the next two fiscal 
     years, and provide the Secretary of the Navy the authority to 
     transfer funds from the ``Ship Modernization, Operations and 
     Sustainment Fund'' to the appropriate appropriation accounts 
     in the year of execution following 30 day prior notification 
     to the congressional defense committees. The conferees direct 
     funds to be transferred in accordance with the requirements 
     previously identified to the congressional defense committees 
     by the Navy and further direct that any deviation from those 
     requirements shall be fully and clearly identified to the 
     congressional defense committees prior to the initiation of 
     any such transfer. The conferees believe that this approach 
     provides the fiscal relief required by the Navy to maintain 
     this force structure and allows the Navy sufficient time to 
     plan and budget for this force structure in future budget 
     submissions.
       Additionally, the conferees direct the Comptroller General 
     to review the Navy's methodology and analysis regarding its 
     decommissioning proposal, to include an analysis of the 
     extent to which readiness metrics, maintenance, and 
     inspection data; operating and support costs; and cost 
     metrics related to initial and proposed curtailed service 
     lives were considered. This review shall also address the 
     extent to which decommissioning costs and any costs for 
     maintaining or acquiring like capabilities were 
     considered, the extent to which combatant command 
     requirements were taken into account when the proposal was 
     made, and the impact of the reduced fleet size on the 
     Navy's ability to meet operational and personnel tempo 
     goals and maintenance requirements. The results of this 
     review should be submitted to the congressional defense 
     committees not later than 180 days after the enactment of 
     this Act.
       In addition, the USS Port Royal (CG-73) incurred 
     significant damage following a grounding incident in 2009. 
     Following the incident, the ship was repaired and has since 
     completed a deployment. However, while the Navy claims that 
     the ship never completely recovered from the grounding, the 
     Navy has failed to provide adequate analysis and cost data on 
     the structural condition of the USS Port Royal. Therefore, 
     the conferees direct the Secretary of the Navy to carry out 
     an independent structural assessment of the Port Royal that 
     includes a comparative structural assessment to other 
     cruisers of the same class. The independent review shall 
     provide a detailed cost estimate to repair the ship and how 
     that estimate differs from the cost to repair other cruisers 
     of the same class, including what issues would be corrected 
     during planned maintenance availabilities. The conferees 
     further direct that this independent assessment be certified 
     by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). Both the 
     independent review and the GAO certification should be 
     submitted to the congressional defense committees not later 
     than 180 days after the enactment of this Act.


                            FORCE STRUCTURE

       The conferees agree to include a provision that prohibits 
     the Air Force from using funds made available by this Act to 
     retire, divest, realign, or transfer aircraft, or to 
     disestablish or convert units, with an exception for actions 
     proposed in the fiscal year 2013 budget request affecting C-
     5, C-17, and E-8 aircraft, and their associated units.
       The conferees do not agree to require the Air Force to 
     submit cost-benefit analyses for the force structure 
     proposals in the fiscal year 2013 budget request, as proposed 
     by the House. However, the conferees expect that any future 
     force structure proposals submitted by the Air Force will be 
     transparently and comprehensively justified.


                              CONFERENCES

       The conferees agree to not retain a reporting requirement 
     as established in House Report 112-493 accompanying the 
     Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2013, which directs 
     the Inspector General to provide reports to the congressional 
     defense committees on conferences.


                           TREATY COMPLIANCE

       The conferees believe compliance with nuclear arms control 
     treaties is vital to our national security. The Secretary of 
     Defense is directed to notify the congressional defense 
     committees if any parties with which the

[[Page S1317]]

     United States has signed a nuclear arms control treaty are 
     violating or acting inconsistently with the terms of that 
     treaty.


                      BASE REALIGNMENT AND CLOSURE

       The conferees do not support further rounds of Base 
     Realignment and Closure (BRAC). As such, there are no funds 
     included in this Act for new BRAC activities.

                      TITLE I--MILITARY PERSONNEL

       The conference agreement provides $127,533,073,000 in Title 
     I, Military Personnel, instead of $128,462,794,000 as 
     proposed by the House and $127,502,463,000 as proposed by the 
     Senate. The conference agreement on items addressed by either 
     the House or the Senate is as follows:

[[Page S1321]]

                PERMANENT CHANGE OF STATION EFFICIENCIES

       The conferees recommend a total reduction of $146,793,000 
     in the Permanent Change of Station (PCS) budgets for program 
     efficiencies. The conferees recognize that potential cost 
     savings could be found in the PCS program. The conferees 
     direct the Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and 
     Readiness) to conduct a review of the PCS program to identify 
     potential efficiencies and to submit a report to the 
     congressional defense committees not later than 180 days 
     after the enactment of this Act on its findings. The 
     conferees understand that each of the Services have increased 
     time on station requirements but that the Services are not 
     meeting these goals. As such, the report should include a 
     review of the reasons that the Services have not met the 
     increased time on station goals and a plan to achieve them, 
     including the budget efficiencies that can be gained by 
     increased tour lengths. Furthermore, the report should 
     consider the potential impact of increased tour lengths on 
     servicemembers' job performance and on morale and quality of 
     life for servicemembers and their families. It should also 
     include how a change in policy would impact promotion and 
     professional development opportunities, personnel readiness, 
     and quality of life issues for servicemembers serving in 
     hardship or overseas locations.


                          COMPOSITE PAY RATES

       For a number of years, the Government Accountability Office 
     (GAO) has used the Department of Defense's composite pay 
     rates in its military personnel end strength analysis to 
     estimate the financial impact of work year variances on the 
     Services' military personnel budget requests. Although this 
     information has been important to the congressional defense 
     committees in their budget analyses, the conferees believe 
     that GAO's estimates would be more useful if the analysis was 
     made available earlier in the budget process. Therefore, to 
     improve the timeliness of the GAO analysis, the conferees 
     direct that the Services' composite budget pay rates should 
     be reviewed, approved, and published not later than 30 days 
     after the President's budget request is submitted to the 
     Congress.

     REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE ACCOUNTS

       The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to continue 
     to follow the reprogramming guidelines specified in the 
     conference report accompanying H.R. 3222, the Department of 
     Defense Appropriations Act, 2008. Specifically, the dollar 
     threshold for reprogramming funds shall remain at $15,000,000 
     for operation and maintenance accounts.
       Also, the conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense 
     (Comptroller) to continue to provide the congressional 
     defense committees annual DD Form 1416 reports for service 
     and defense-wide accounts in titles I and II of this Act. 
     Further, the conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense 
     (Comptroller) to submit the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 
     1414) for each of the fiscal year 2013 appropriations 
     accounts not later than 60 days after the enactment of this 
     Act. The Secretary of Defense is prohibited from executing 
     any reprogramming or transfer of funds for any purpose other 
     than originally appropriated until the aforementioned report 
     is submitted to the House and Senate Appropriations 
     Committees.
       The Secretary of Defense is directed to use the normal 
     prior approval reprogramming procedures to transfer funds in 
     the Services' operation and maintenance accounts between O-1 
     budget activities in excess of $15,000,000. In addition, the

     $15,000,000 into the following budget sub-activity:
       Operation and Maintenance, Army National Guard: Other 
     personnel support/recruiting and advertising
       With respect to Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide, 
     proposed transfers of funds to or from the levels specified 
     for defense agencies in excess of $15,000,000 shall be 
     subject to prior approval reprogramming procedures.


                MILITARY INFORMATION SUPPORT OPERATIONS

       The conference agreement includes $187,200,000 for 
     Department of Defense military information support 
     operations, instead of $170,100,000 as proposed by the House 
     and $228,600,000 as proposed by the Senate. Of the total 
     amount, the conference agreement includes $32,400,000 in 
     title II and $154,800,000 in title IX of this division. The 
     allocation of funding by combatant command and funding levels 
     for certain programs is specifically delineated in the 
     classified annex accompanying this Act. Those items shall be 
     considered congressional special interest items and be 
     subject to normal reprogramming procedures. The conferees 
     reiterate the direction in House Report 112-493 regarding 
     congressional budget justifications and reporting 
     requirements for military information support operations.


           SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION

       The conferees are aware of a proposal to establish a 
     Special Operations Command National Capital Region (SOCOM-
     NCR) entity. While no funds were requested for this activity 
     in either the fiscal year 2012 or fiscal year 2013 budget 
     submissions, the conferees understand that SOCOM began this 
     initiative using fiscal year 2012 Overseas Contingency 
     Operations funds. Unfortunately, few details have been 
     provided regarding the basis for this proposal and the 
     expected efficiencies. Therefore, the conferees direct that 
     no funds made available in this Act shall be used for the 
     SOCOM-NCR until 30 days after the congressional defense 
     committees have received a copy of the Secretary of Defense's 
     waiver of Section 8018 of this Act and a report which 
     describes the purpose of, and activities to be performed by 
     the SOCOM-NCR, an explanation of the impact of this proposal 
     on existing activities at SOCOM headquarters, and a detailed, 
     by fiscal year, breakout of the staffing and costs associated 
     with its establishment over the future years defense program.

                         SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS

       Items for which additional funds have been provided as 
     shown in the project level tables or in paragraphs using the 
     phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' are congressional special 
     interest items for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming 
     (DD Form 1414). Each of these items must be carried on the DD 
     Form 1414 at the stated amount, as specifically addressed in 
     the explanatory statement.


            REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR ACQUISITION ACCOUNTS

       The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to continue 
     to follow the reprogramming guidance as specified in the 
     report accompanying the House version of the fiscal year 2008 
     Department of Defense Appropriations bill (House Report 110-
     279). Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming 
     funds will remain at $20,000,000 for procurement and 
     $10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.
       Also, the conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense 
     (Comptroller) to continue to provide the congressional 
     defense committees quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 
     reports for service and defense-wide accounts in titles III 
     and IV of this Act. Reports for titles III and IV shall 
     comply with the guidance specified in the explanatory 
     statement accompanying the Department of Defense 
     Appropriations Act, 2006. The Department shall continue to 
     follow the limitation that prior approval reprogrammings are 
     set at either the specified dollar threshold or 20 percent of 
     the procurement or research, development, test and evaluation 
     line, whichever is less. These thresholds are cumulative from 
     the base for reprogramming value as modified by any 
     adjustments. Therefore, if the combined value of transfers 
     into or out of a procurement (P-1) or research, development, 
     test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds the identified 
     threshold, the Department of Defense must submit a prior 
     approval reprogramming to the congressional defense 
     committees. In addition, guidelines on the application of 
     prior approval reprogramming procedures for congressional 
     special interest items are established elsewhere in this 
     statement.


      DIMINISHING MANUFACTURING SOURCES COSTS IN MISSILE PROGRAMS

       The conferees are concerned by the level of diminishing 
     manufacturing sources (DMS) costs in Department of Defense 
     tactical missile programs, particularly the Advanced Medium 
     Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM). The conferees direct the 
     Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology, and 
     Logistics), in coordination with the Service secretaries, to 
     provide two reports to the congressional defense committees.
       The first report shall provide information on the 
     management of DMS costs within the AMRAAM program, to include 
     an explanation of the cost drivers of AMRAAM DMS; an 
     explanation of the AMRAAM program's approach to DMS 
     management and its conformity with departmental guidance and 
     best practices; an economic analysis demonstrating the costs 
     and benefits, including the break-even point, of the AMRAAM 
     DMS program; and an analysis of the impact of foreign 
     military sales on AMRAAM DMS costs and management. This 
     report shall be submitted not later than 120 days after the 
     enactment of this Act.
       The second report shall provide information on the broader 
     issue of DMS costs and management across all tactical missile 
     procurement programs. This report shall provide an overview 
     of current strategies for addressing DMS, including current 
     and planned joint activities that address common DMS issues; 
     an explanation of the key tactical missile DMS cost drivers; 
     a comparison of DMS costs across all tactical missile 
     programs; and an analysis of the impact of foreign military 
     sales on DMS costs and management. This report shall be 
     submitted not later than 180 days after the enactment of this 
     Act.
       In addition, the conferees direct the Secretaries of the 
     Air Force and the Navy to report DMS costs separately from 
     missile unit costs in future budget exhibits to enhance the 
     congressional defense committees' ability to oversee DMS 
     costs.


      JOINT STRIKE FIGHTER ADVANCE PROCUREMENT AND CONTRACT DELAYS

       The conferees are concerned with the Joint Strike Fighter 
     (JSF) contract award timelines and the negative impacts on 
     the JSF subcontractor workforce. The combination of 
     inconsistencies in JSF advance procurement for each variant 
     and the contract award delays have a potential to put the 
     industrial base at risk or jeopardize the aircraft delivery 
     schedule. Therefore, the conferees direct the Secretary of 
     Defense to provide a report which examines the authorities 
     and use of JSF advance procurement, including the rationale 
     for the cost differences in advance procurement among the 
     aircraft variants and their associated impacts to the 
     subcontractor workforce. Additionally, the report should 
     examine the causes of procurement contract award delays and 
     the planned corrective action to ensure that final award of 
     the production contracts occurs within the year of 
     appropriation. This report shall be submitted to the 
     congressional defense committees not later than 120 days 
     after the enactment of this Act. USE OF UNM


          USE OF UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES IN DOMESTIC AIRSPACE

       The conferees are aware of concerns that have been raised 
     regarding the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and their 
     sensors in domestic airspace. The conferees understand that 
     the Air Force has policies and procedures in place governing 
     the disposition of UAV collections that may inadvertently 
     capture matters of concern to law enforcement agencies. These 
     policies and procedures are designed to ensure constitutional 
     protections and proper separation between the military and 
     law enforcement. However, it is unclear if other Services and 
     Defense agencies have similar policies and procedures in 
     place, or if these policies and procedures need to be revised 
     or standardized. Therefore, the conferees direct the 
     Secretary of Defense to report to the congressional defense 
     committees on the policies and procedures in place across the 
     Services and Defense agencies governing the use of such 
     collections and to identify any additional steps that need to 
     be taken to ensure that such policies and procedures are 
     adequate and consistent across the Department of Defense. 
     This report shall be submitted not later than 90 days after 
     the enactment of this Act.

             B-52 COMBAT NETWORK COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY

       The fiscal year 2013 budget request included no funds in 
     Aircraft Procurement, Air Force for the B-52 Combat Network 
     Communications Technology (CONECT) program despite a valid 
     requirement from the Air Force Global Strike Command. 
     Subsequent to the budget submission, the program achieved 
     conditional entry into Milestone C Low Rate Initial 
     Production (LRIP), with an LRIP contract award contingent 
     upon funding of the B-52 CONECT program in the fiscal year 
     2014 Program Objective Memorandum. Accordingly, the conferees 
     recommend the retention of prior year B-52 CONECT funding for 
     an LRIP contract award subject to the conditions identified 
     by the Milestone C Acquisition Decision Memorandum.

                   EVOLVED EXPENDABLE LAUNCH VEHICLE

       The conference agreement provides $805,250,000 for Evolved 
     Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) Launch Services and 
     $654,606,000 for EELV Launch Capability. The funds are 
     provided in separate procurement lines to increase the budget 
     visibility of each program. The conferees direct that none of 
     the recommended reduction to the EELV Launch Capabilities 
     program be applied against mission assurance activities. 
     Finally, the conferees direct the Secretary of the Air Force 
     to provide clarification and definition of mission assurance 
     activities that can be correlated to the EELV program and 
     contract to the congressional defense committees not later 
     than 90 days after the enactment of this Act.

       The conference agreement provides $69,928,477,000 in Title 
     IV, Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, instead of 
     $69,984,145,000 as proposed by the House and $69,091,078,000 
     as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement on items 
     addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows:

                         special interest items

       Items for which additional funds have been provided as 
     shown in the project level tables or in paragraphs using the 
     phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' are congressional special 
     interest items for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming 
     (DD Form 1414). Each of these items must be carried on the DD 
     Form 1414 at the stated amount, as specifically addressed in 
     the explanatory statement.


            reprogramming guidance for acquisition accounts

       The conferees direct the Department of Defense to continue 
     to follow the reprogramming guidance specified in the report 
     accompanying the House version of the fiscal year 2008 
     Department of Defense Appropriations bill (House Report 110-
     279). Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming 
     funds will remain at $20,000,000 for procurement and 
     $10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.
       Also, the conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense 
     (Comptroller) to continue to provide the congressional 
     defense committees quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 
     reports for service and defense-wide accounts in titles III 
     and IV of this Act. Reports for titles III and IV shall 
     comply with guidance specified in the explanatory statement 
     accompanying the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 
     2006. The Department shall continue to follow the limitation 
     that prior approval reprogrammings are set at either the 
     specified dollar threshold or 20 percent of the procurement 
     or research, development, test and evaluation line, whichever 
     is less. These thresholds are cumulative from the base for 
     reprogramming value as modified by any adjustments. 
     Therefore, if the combined value of transfers into or out of 
     a procurement (P-1) or research, development, test and 
     evaluation (R-1) line exceeds the identified threshold, the 
     Department of Defense must submit a prior approval 
     reprogramming to the congressional defense committees. In 
     addition, guidelines on the application of prior approval 
     reprogramming procedures for congressional special interest 
     items are established elsewhere in this statement.


           department of defense and service cyber activities

       The conferees understand that the Department is revising 
     the budget justification materials to be provided with the 
     fiscal year 2014 budget submission that are in support of 
     cyber activities. The conferees support the Department's 
     efforts to provide increased detail on this important 
     national security issue and will continue to work with the 
     Department to ensure there is adequate oversight on cyber 
     activities.

                        ACTIVE DENIAL TECHNOLOGY

       The fiscal year 2013 budget request included $35,218,000 in 
     Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Army, program 
     element 0602624A, ``Weapons and Munitions Technology''. The 
     conferees are aware that multiple programs and projects are 
     funded in this program element, including non-lethal 
     technologies. The conferees recognize the benefits to units 
     in the field of developing non-lethal technologies, including 
     counter-personnel and directed energy technologies. The 
     conference agreement provides an additional $15,000,000, as 
     proposed by the House, to support Army research and 
     development efforts in both lethal and non-lethal 
     technologies.

                    SPACE MODERNIZATION INITIATIVES

       The conference agreement provides an additional $18,000,000 
     for the Space Based Infra-Red System (SBIRS) and $25,000,000 
     for the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) Satellite 
     Modernization Initiative (SMI) efforts and reiterates the 
     direction as detailed in Senate Report 112-196 for the 
     Secretary of the Air Force to provide the congressional 
     defense committees a report detailing how the additional SMI 
     funds will be used not less than 30 days prior to the 
     obligation of such funds.
       The conferees support the evolution of current space 
     systems but are concerned that the Department of Defense and 
     the Air Force have yet to define the architectural and system 
     specific goals being pursued with these funds. The conferees 
     direct the Secretary of the Air Force, in coordination with 
     the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology, and 
     Logistics), to provide to the congressional defense 
     committees, not later than 90 days after the enactment of 
     this Act, a report describing the overall SMI strategy and 
     goals, a specific accounting of the studies and technologies 
     to be pursued, the current and follow-on costs for those 
     efforts, schedules for delivery of such efforts, and a 
     roadmap of how these efforts correlate or support the future 
     acquisition plans for SBIRS, AEHF, and Global Positioning 
     System satellite and ground segments.


                       PROMOTING ENERGY SECURITY

       The conferees do not include a provision as proposed by the 
     House regarding the Energy Independence and Security Act. 
     However, the conferees provide $20,000,000 in Research, 
     Development, Test and Evaluation, Air Force only for research 
     that will improve emissions of coal to liquid fuel to enable 
     this technology to be a competitive alternative energy 
     resource to meet the goals established in the Department of 
     Defense's Operational Energy Strategy and its Implementation 
     Plan. The conferees direct the Secretary of the Air Force, in 
     consultation with the Assistant Secretary of Defense for 
     Operational Energy Plans and Programs, to inform the 
     congressional defense committees 30 days prior to any 
     obligation or expenditure of these funds. RESEARCH,

         REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR THE DEFENSE HEALTH PROGRAM

       The conferees remain concerned regarding the transfer of 
     funds from Direct (or In-house) Care to pay for contractor-
     provided medical care. To limit such transfers and improve 
     oversight within the Defense Health Program operation and 
     maintenance account, the conferees include a provision which 
     caps the funds available for Private Sector Care under the 
     TRICARE program subject to prior approval reprogramming 
     procedures. The provision and accompanying explanatory 
     statement language included by the conferees should not be 
     interpreted by the Department as limiting the amount of funds 
     that may be transferred to the Direct Care System from other 
     budget activities within the Defense Health Program. In 
     addition, the conferees continue to designate the funding for 
     the Direct Care System as a special interest item. Any 
     transfer of funds from the Direct (or In-house) Care budget 
     activity into the Private Sector Care budget activity or any 
     other budget activity will require the Department of Defense 
     to follow prior approval reprogramming procedures.
       The Department shall also provide written notification to 
     the congressional defense committees of cumulative transfers 
     in excess of $15,000,000 out of the Private Sector Care 
     budget activity. The conferees further direct the Assistant 
     Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to provide quarterly 
     reports to the congressional defense committees on budget 
     execution data for all of the Defense Health Program accounts 
     and to adequately reflect changes to the budget activities 
     requested by the Services in future budget submissions.


                               CARRYOVER

       For fiscal year 2013, the conferees recommend one percent 
     carryover authority for the operation and maintenance account 
     of the Defense Health Program. The conferees direct the 
     Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to submit a 
     detailed spending plan for any fiscal year 2012 designated 
     carryover funds to the congressional defense committees not 
     less than 30 days prior to executing the carryover funds. 
     I89PEER-REVIEWED CANCER RESEARCH PROGRAM
       The conference agreement provides $15,000,000 for a Peer-
     Reviewed Cancer Research Program that would research cancers 
     not addressed in the breast, prostate, ovarian, and lung 
     cancer research programs currently executed by the Department 
     of Defense, and specifically by the U.S. Army Medical 
     Research and Materiel Command.
       The funds provided are directed to be used to conduct 
     research in the following areas: melanoma and other skin 
     cancers, pediatric brain tumors, genetic cancer research, 
     pancreatic cancer, kidney cancer, blood cancer, colorectal 
     cancer, mesothelioma, neuroblastoma, and listeria vaccine for 
     cancer.
       The funds provided under the Peer-Reviewed Cancer Research 
     Program shall only be used for the purposes listed above. The 
     conferees direct the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health 
     Affairs) to provide a report not later than 60 days after the 
     enactment of this Act to the congressional defense committees 
     on the status of the Peer-Reviewed Cancer Research Program. 
     For each research area, the report should include the funding 
     amount awarded, the progress of the research, and the 
     relevance of the research to servicemembers and their 
     families.


                 PEER-REVIEWED MEDICAL RESEARCH PROGRAM

       The conference agreement provides $50,000,000 for a Peer-
     Reviewed Medical Research Program. The conferees direct the 
     Secretary of Defense, in conjunction with the Service 
     Surgeons General, to select medical research projects of 
     clear scientific merit and direct relevance to military 
     health. Research areas considered under this funding are 
     restricted to the following areas: chronic kidney disease, 
     chronic migraine and post-traumatic headaches, composite 
     tissue transplantation, dengue, DNA vaccine technology for 
     postexposure prophylaxis, dystonia, epilepsy, food allergies, 
     Fragile X syndrome, hantavirus, hereditary angioedema, 
     inflammatory bowel disease, interstitial cystitis, 
     leishmaniasis, lupus, malaria, nanomedicine for drug delivery 
     science, pancreatitis, polycystic kidney disease, post-
     traumatic osteoarthritis, pulmonary hypertension, rheumatoid 
     arthritis, scleroderma, and tinnitus. The conferees emphasize 
     that the additional funding provided under the Peer-Reviewed 
     Medical Research Program shall be devoted only to the 
     purposes listed above.


                  INTEGRATED ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORD

       The conference agreement includes a provision restricting 
     the amount of funding that may be obligated to develop the 
     integrated Department of Defense-Department of Veterans 
     Affairs (DoD-VA) integrated Electronic Health Record (iEHR) 
     to 25 percent of the funding provided until the DoD-VA 
     Interagency Program Office (IPO) provides the House and 
     Senate Appropriations Committees an expenditure plan which 
     includes elements such as a budget and cost baseline with 
     annual and total spending for each Department and quarterly 
     milestones. The expenditure plan should also be submitted to 
     the Government Accountability Office for review.
       The conferees are concerned that after four years of 
     working to establish a joint framework to collaborate and 
     develop an integrated Electronic Health Record, the two 
     Departments still seem to be operating as single entities. 
     The conferees support the creation of the IPO and recognize 
     this office as the single point of accountability for the 
     development and implementation of the integrated Electronic 
     Health Record for both Departments. Unfortunately, since the 
     creation of the IPO and the naming of a director, the 
     conferees have seen little benefit from establishing this 
     office since both Departments appear to operate as separate 
     entities. Despite repeated inquiries, neither the Departments 
     nor the IPO has been able to provide Congress with a firm 
     total cost of the integrated system. The conferees are 
     concerned that the IPO is unable to maintain focus on its 
     defined goals, provide effective governance, manage and 
     maintain accountability on behalf of both Departments, and 
     provide Congress with detailed expenditure plans as well as 
     information regarding the progress and future plans for this 
     project.
       As a result, the conferees direct the IPO to deliver to the 
     congressional defense committees, the Senate and House 
     Subcommittees on Appropriations for Military Construction, 
     Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies, and the Government 
     Accountability Office (GAO) a quarterly report that includes 
     a detailed explanation of the cost and schedule of the iEHR 
     development, to include milestones, knowledge points, and 
     acquisition timelines as they impact both Departments, as 
     well as quarterly obligation reports. The conferees also 
     direct the IPO to continue briefing the House and Senate 
     Appropriations Committees on a quarterly basis, coinciding 
     with the report submission. The conferees further direct the 
     GAO to review these quarterly reports and provide an annual 
     report to the congressional defense committees and the Senate 
     and House Subcommittees on Appropriations for Military 
     Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies on the 
     cost and schedule of the iEHR.

       The conference agreement provides $1,301,786,000 for

       The conference agreement retains a provision proposed by

     provision.
       The conference agreement modifies a provision proposed by

     on the use of funds made available by this Act to initiate 
     multi-year contracts.
       The conference agreement retains a provision proposed by

     contained a similar provision but made it permanent.
       The conference agreement retains a provision proposed by 
     the Senate which provides funding from various appropriations

     contained a similar provision.

               TITLE IX--OVERSEAS CONTINGENCY OPERATIONS

       The conference agreement provides $86,954,838,000 in Title 
     IX, Overseas Contingency Operations, instead of 
     $87,105,081,000 as proposed by the House and $93,026,000,000 
     as proposed by the Senate.


                         REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

       The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to continue 
     to report incremental contingency operations costs for 
     Operation New Dawn and Operation Enduring Freedom on a 
     monthly basis in the Cost of War Execution report as required 
     by the Department of Defense Financial Management Regulation, 
     Chapter 23, Volume 12. The conferees further direct the 
     Department to continue providing Cost of War reports to the 
     congressional defense committees that include the following 
     information by appropriation account: funding appropriated, 
     funding allocated, monthly obligations, monthly 
     disbursements, cumulative fiscal year obligations, and 
     cumulative fiscal year disbursements.
       The conferees expect that in order to meet unanticipated 
     requirements, the Department of Defense may need to transfer 
     funds within these appropriations accounts for purposes other 
     than those specified in this report. The conferees direct the 
     Department of Defense to follow normal prior approval 
     reprogramming procedures should it be necessary to transfer 
     funding between different appropriations accounts in this 
     title.


                        EXTREMIST ORGANIZATIONS

       The conferees are aware that certain governments and 
     organizations have policies and practices counter to the best 
     interests of the United States. The conferees reiterate that 
     extremist governments and organizations should not be funded 
     by this Act and that the conferees will closely monitor the 
     expenditure of funds by the Department of Defense regarding 
     such matters.

                           MILITARY PERSONNEL

       The conference agreement provides $14,116,821,000 for 
     Military Personnel, instead of $13,934,683,000 as proposed by 
     the House and $14,410,421,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
     conference agreement on items addressed by either the House 
     or the Senate is as follows:

                  NATIONAL GUARD AND RESERVE EQUIPMENT

       The conference agreement provides $1,500,000,000 for 
     National Guard and Reserve Equipment. Of that amount, 
     $460,000,000 is for the Army National Guard, $460,000,000 for 
     the Air National Guard, $240,000,000 for the Army Reserve, 
     $90,000,000 for the Navy Reserve, $120,000,000 for the Marine 
     Corps Reserve, and $130,000,000 for the Air Force Reserve to 
     meet urgent equipment needs that may arise this fiscal year.
       This funding will allow the Guard and reserve components to 
     procure high priority equipment that may be used by these 
     components for both their combat missions and their missions 
     in support of state governors. The conferees direct that the 
     National Guard and Reserve Equipment account shall be 
     executed by the Chiefs of the National Guard and reserve 
     components with priority consideration given to the following 
     items: A-10 Situation Awareness Upgrade; ARC 210 Radios for 
     ANG F-16s; Arctic Search and Rescue Packages; Armory-Based 
     Individual and Unstabilized Gunnery Trainers; Batteries and 
     Battery Support Equipment; Bradley Modifications; C-130 
     Crash-Resistant Loadmaster Seats; C-130 Secure Line-of-Sight 
     [SLOS] Beyond Line-of-Sight [BLOS] Capability; C-130/KC-135 
     Real Time Information in Cockpit [RTIC] Data Link; CH-47 Door 
     Gun Mounts; Combat Mobility Equipment; Combined Arms Virtual 
     Trainers; F-15 AESA Radars; Field Engineering, Logistics, 
     Maintenance, and Security Equipment; Force Protection 
     Equipment; Generation 4 Advanced Targeting Pods; Green Laser 
     Interdiction Systems; handheld laser trackers; HC-130 Forward 
     Area Refueling Point; Helicopter Firefighting Equipment; 
     Helmet-Mounted Cueing System; HMMWV Recapitalization; In-
     Flight Propeller Balancing System; Internal and External 
     Auxiliary Fuel Tanks for Apaches and Chinooks; Joint Threat 
     Emitters; Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures [LAIRCM]; 
     Light Utility Helicopters; Modular Airborne Firefighting 
     System II; Modular Small Arms Training Systems; MRAP Vehicle 
     Virtual Trainers; Naval Construction Force Tactical Vehicles 
     and Support Equipment; Reactive Skin Decontamination Lotion; 
     SATCOM Ground Stations; Support Wide Area Network [SWAN] D 
     V3/MRT Packages; Targeting Pod Upgrades; Thermal Imaging 
     Systems; Ultra-Light Tactical Vehicles; Unit Maintenance 
     Aerial Recovery Kits; Virtual Convoy Operations Trainers; and 
     Virtual Door Gunner Trainers.


             RESERVE COMPONENT SIMULATION TRAINING SYSTEMS

       The use of simulation training systems has yielded a 
     military that is better trained, more capable, and more 
     confident as compared to units that do not have access to 
     modern simulation training devices. Simulation training is a 
     cost-effective means by which reserve units can improve 
     tactical decision-making skills and ultimately save lives. It 
     is anticipated that a portion of the funding in the National 
     Guard and Reserve Equipment account will be used to procure a 
     variety of simulation training systems. To ensure the most 
     efficient and effective training programs, these systems 
     should be a combination of both government owned and operated 
     simulators, as well as simulation support from a dedicated 
     commercial activity capable of providing frequent hardware 
     and software updates.


     NATIONAL GUARD AND RESERVE EQUIPMENT RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

       The conferees are concerned that the active Services are 
     not providing the necessary research, development, test and 
     evaluation funding for federal and domestic operations 
     requirements as they relate to equipping the reserve 
     components, especially equipment unique to the reserve 
     component or legacy systems with limited active component 
     investment. The conferees understand that the funding 
     required is minimal, and therefore direct the Services, 
     particularly the Air Force, to provide the necessary 
     research, development, test and evaluation funds to ensure 
     that modernizing equipment or legacy systems unique to the 
     reserve component be given the required design, integration, 
     test, and software efforts needed prior to procurement.

               RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION

       The conference agreement provides $247,716,000 for 
     Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, instead of 
     $235,516,000 as proposed by the House and $260,413,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement on items 
     addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows:

     Defense Working Capital Funds, instead of $293,600,000 as 
     proposed by the House and $1,467,864,000 as proposed by the 
     Senate. The conference agreement on items addressed by either 
     the House or the Senate is as follows:

     Security for fiscal year 2013. Unless otherwise noted, 
     reference to the House and Senate reports are to House Report 
     112-492 and Senate Report 112-169, respectively. The language 
     and allocations contained in House Report 112-492 and Senate 
     Report 112-169 should be complied with and carry the same 
     emphasis as the language included in the explanatory 
     statement, unless specifically addressed to the contrary in 
     the bill or this explanatory statement. While repeating some 
     report language for emphasis, this explanatory statement does 
     not intend to negate the language referred to above unless 
     expressly provided herein. When this explanatory statement 
     refers to the Committees or the Committees on Appropriations, 
     unless otherwise noted, this reference is to the House 
     Subcommittee on Homeland Security and the Senate Subcommittee 
     on the Department of Homeland Security. In cases where the 
     explanatory statement directs the submission of a report, 
     such report shall be provided to the Committees on 
     Appropriations by April 3, 2013, unless otherwise directed. 
     In cases where the explanatory statement directs a briefing, 
     such briefing shall be provided to the Committees by April 3, 
     2013, unless otherwise directed.
       This explanatory statement refers to the following laws and 
     organizations as follows: Implementing Recommendations of the 
     9/11 Commission Act of 2007, Public Law 110-53, is referenced

     interpreted to mean the Secretary of Homeland Security.

                          Classified Programs

       Recommended adjustments to classified programs are 
     addressed in a classified annex accompanying this explanatory 
     statement.

            TITLE I--DEPARTMENTAL MANAGEMENT AND OPERATIONS

            Office of the Secretary and Executive Management

       The bill provides $130,000,000 for ``Office of the 
     Secretary and Executive Management.'' Not to exceed $45,000 
     of this funding shall be for official reception and 
     representation expenses, and the Department is directed to 
     submit quarterly reports to the Committees on DHS reception 
     and representation expenses, as specified in the Senate 
     report. The amount provided under this heading does not 
     include $370,000 as requested, for a civilian pay raise. 
     Should the President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, 
     it is assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013. The bill 
     also continues a provision requiring that funds made 
     available for ``Immediate Office of the Secretary'' and 
     ``Immediate Office of the Deputy Secretary'' shall be used to 
     pay for official costs associated with use of government 
     aircraft by DHS personnel in support of official travel of 
     the Secretary and Deputy Secretary. In addition, a new 
     general provision is included in the bill withholding 20 
     percent of this appropriation from obligation until the 
     Committees receive the reports and plans required in this Act 
     to be submitted on or before May 1, 2013. New bill language 
     also is included that mandates the submission of expenditure 
     plans for the Office of Policy, Office of Intergovernmental 
     Affairs, the Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, the 
     Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman, and the 
     Privacy Officer not later than 90 days after the date of 
     enactment of this Act. This language supersedes reporting 
     requirements set forth in the Senate report.
       The amount provided for this appropriation by PPA is as 
     follows:
Immediate Office of the Secretary............................$4,286,000
Immediate Office of the Deputy Secretary......................2,094,000
Office of the Chief of Staff..................................2,175,000

    Total, Office of the Secretary and Executive Management$130,000,000

                  Executive Aircraft Usage and Funding

       Congress adopted a new proviso covering the funding of 
     official travel on government aircraft as part of the fiscal 
     year 2010 appropriation for the Office of the Secretary and 
     Executive Management (OSEM), and that language has remained 
     in effect. Congressional intent set forth in the explanatory 
     statement of managers for that appropriation, and reaffirmed 
     since, is that the OSEM appropriation is to be used to fund 
     all official costs associated with the use of government 
     aircraft by the Department of Homeland Security personnel to 
     support official travel of the Secretary and the Deputy 
     Secretary. This proviso was adopted to provide increased 
     oversight of executive travel. The Committees understand, 
     however, that the Department has narrowly interpreted the 
     proviso by defining as ``direct'' costs those that are funded 
     by the OSEM appropriation and as ``indirect'' costs those 
     that are funded by the Coast Guard.
       The Secretary is directed to provide a report no later than 
     April 3, 2013, detailing all costs of official and 
     nonofficial travel by the Secretary and the Deputy Secretary 
     (both direct and indirect), delineated by each trip from 
     fiscal year 2008 through the present within all DHS 
     appropriations.

                            Office of Policy

       The bill includes $43,750,000 for the Office of Policy. 
     This funding should also cover the costs of the Office of 
     International Affairs, Office of State and Local Law 
     Enforcement, and the Private Sector Office. The Committees 
     deny the request to fund those three offices as separate 
     entities that report directly to the Secretary.

                            External Affairs

       The Department is directed to brief the Committees no later 
     than April 3, 2013, on the potential of establishing an 
     external affairs office within OSEM, as discussed in the 
     House report.

              Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties

       The bill includes $21,640,000 for the Office for Civil 
     Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL), reflecting programmatic 
     increases proposed by the Department to ensure immigration 
     enforcement efforts are carried out in a manner consistent 
     with applicable law.

                 Appropriate Assistance to Stakeholders

       Funds are available in a number of DHS offices and 
     components, including CRCL, the

     Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman, U.S. 
     Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and United States 
     Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Customer Service 
     and Public Engagement Directorate, to provide appropriate 
     assistance and guidance to aliens and their advocates in 
     order to facilitate adherence to U.S. laws and, where 
     possible, avoid costly and needless litigation. These 
     entities assist in communication between the Department and 
     its various stakeholders. Frequently, this results in 
     budgetary savings when the correct information is provided at 
     the earliest stages of the immigration process. The 
     Committees support these efforts.

                               User Fees

       The Secretary is directed to submit to the Committees as 
     soon as possible the contingency plan to address gaps between 
     actual and budgeted collections of user fees mandated in the 
     conference report accompanying Public Law 111-83, and submit 
     a revised plan no later than 90 days after the date of 
     enactment of this Act.

          Quarterly Reports and Other Information Requirements

       The Committees underscore the importance of timely 
     submission of quarterly reports on operations, as outlined in 
     the joint explanatory statement accompanying Public Law 112-
     74. DHS shall continue to submit the Border Security Status 
     Reports, the Secure Communities Quarterly Reports, and the 
     Detention and Removal Operations Quarterly Reports with the 
     detailed information as required by such statement. In 
     addition, the information on apprehensions and recidivism 
     rates noted in the House report shall be included in the 
     Border Security Status Reports for fiscal year 2013 and 
     beyond.
       The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and ICE are to 
     brief the Committees no later than April 3, 2013, on their 
     tools to reduce recidivism, as required by the House report.
       Further, the Office of Immigration Statistics, in 
     conjunction with all the relevant DHS components, are to 
     brief the Committees no later than April 3, 2013, regarding 
     collection and reporting of complete immigration enforcement 
     statistics, as required by the House report.

       Weapons of Mass Destruction Policy and Program Management

       Language in the House report regarding the need to elevate 
     and streamline the Department's focus on efforts to address 
     chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats and 
     deter and counter weapons of mass destruction (WMD) is agreed 
     to. In particular, DHS should ensure clear assignment of 
     responsibilities and unrestricted lines of communication both 
     within the Department and in DHS engagement with the 
     interagency and intergovernmental community. In working 
     towards this, DHS should eliminate duplication of efforts 
     within and between Departmental components, both in terms of 
     administrative resources and organization. The Department is 
     therefore directed to undertake an in-depth review of its 
     organization, operations, and communications in carrying out 
     its WMD programs, to include an evaluation of potential 
     improvements in performance and possible savings in costs 
     that might be gained by consolidation of current 
     organizations and missions, including the option of merging 
     functions of the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) and 
     the Office of Health Affairs (OHA). While evaluating this 
     option, consideration should be given to realigning certain 
     functions outside of the new office, as detailed in the House 
     report. The review should encompass all current and 
     authorized DHS program activity for WMD defense; examine 
     options for improvements on a holistic, department-wide 
     basis, for carrying out these functions and operations; and 
     include specific recommendations, to include statutory, 
     organizational, administrative and funding changes. The 
     Secretary is directed to submit the results of this review 
     not later than September 1, 2013. Submission of this review 
     is in lieu of the direction contained in the House report to 
     develop a consolidation plan to merge DNDO and OHA into an 
     Office of Weapons of Mass Destruction Defense for fiscal year 
     2014.

           Federally Funded Research and Development Centers

       The Department is directed to submit a detailed report at 
     the time it submits its fiscal year 2014 budget on its 
     current and projected use of federally funded research and 
     development centers (FFRDCs), identifying FFRDCs used by 
     components and projects they are supporting, and detailing 
     FFRDC by project and appropriation for fiscal years 2012 and 
     projected for fiscal years 2013 and 2014.

                            TWIC Reader Rule

       The Department, and in particular the Coast Guard and the 
     Transportation Security Administration (TSA), is directed to 
     take all necessary action to expedite the completion and 
     publication of a final rule governing the Transportation 
     Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) reader requirement.

                            Evolving Threats

       DHS is directed to brief the Committees on how it is 
     applying its resources to address evolving terrorist threats, 
     as specified in the Senate report.

                           Chemical Security

       Congress directed the Coast Guard and the National 
     Protection and Programs Directorate to complete a planned 
     Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to harmonize chemical 
     security responsibilities established by the Chemical 
     Facilities Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) regulations and 
     Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) regulatory 
     programs no later than March 30, 2012, but the agreement has 
     not been finalized. The MOU is to be completed expeditiously. 
     The Deputy Secretary is also directed to continue semiannual 
     reporting to the Committees on these matters as outlined in 
     Senate Report 112-74.

                     Departmental Integrity Efforts

       The Deputy Secretary, jointly with the OIG, CBP, and ICE, 
     is directed to brief the Committees not later than 60 days 
     after the date of enactment of this Act on steps for 
     addressing corruption of DHS employees, as discussed in the 
     Senate report.

                  Compact of Freely Associated States

       The Department is directed to promulgate regulations for 
     the admission and residency of Freely Associated States (FAS) 
     migrants, and to continue its work within the National 
     Security Council Interagency Policy Committee on Freely 
     Associated State Affairs, as stated in the Senate report.

                             Overhead Costs

       The Department is directed to submit a plan to reduce 
     overhead costs within 60 days of the date of enactment of 
     this Act, as specified in the Senate report.

               Research and Development Portfolio Reviews

       The Secretary is directed, through the Under Secretary for 
     Science and Technology, to establish a review process for all 
     research and development and related work within DHS, as 
     specified in the Senate report, and to brief the Committees 
     on this effort no later than 120 days after the date of 
     enactment of this Act.

                     Port Security Training Program

       The Department and Coast Guard are directed to move forward 
     with issuing new national requirements for security training 
     at marine terminals, as stated in the Senate report.

              Office of the Under Secretary for Management

       The bill provides $218,511,000 for ``Office of the Under 
     Secretary for Management.'' Not to exceed $2,250 of this 
     funding shall be for official reception and representation 
     expenses. The amount provided under this heading does not 
     include $538,000, as requested, for a civilian pay raise. 
     Should the President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, 
     it is assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013.
       A new general provision is included withholding 20 percent 
     of this appropriation from obligation until the Committees 
     receive the reports and plans required in this Act to be 
     submitted on or before May 1, 2013. In addition bill language 
     is included requiring the Under Secretary for Management to 
     submit to the Committees, at the same time the President's 
     fiscal year 2014 budget is submitted, a Comprehensive 
     Acquisition Status Report (CASR) including the information 
     specified in the joint explanatory statement accompanying 
     Public Law 112-74, and to provide quarterly updates 
     thereafter.
       Pursuant to a general provision in Title V of this Act, the 
     bill provides $29,000,000 for ``Office of the Under Secretary 
     for Management'' for costs associated with headquarters 
     consolidation and mission support consolidation. The Under 
     Secretary shall submit an expenditure plan no later than 90 
     days after the date of enactment of this Act detailing how 
     this $29,000,000 in total funding will be allocated, 
     including a revised schedule and cost estimates for 
     headquarters consolidation. Quarterly briefings are required 
     on headquarters and mission support consolidation activities, 
     including any deviation from the expenditure plan.
       The amount provided for this appropriation by PPA is as 
     follows:

               Insourcing and Balanced Workforce Strategy

       The Department has been carrying out a program to balance 
     its workforce between direct employees and contractor-held 
     positions in the interest of achieving the optimal degree of 
     Federal control of DHS work and to reduce overreliance on 
     contractors. In order to assess the performance of this 
     effort, and its relative costs and benefits, the Department 
     is directed to include in the President's

[[Page S1548]]

     annual budget request a detailed justification of any planned 
     insourcing or outsourcing initiatives to include a net 
     present value comparison of the life-cycle cost of a 
     contracted position or task to the cost of a federalized FTE. 
     In addition, the Department is directed to submit to the 
     Committees not later than April 3, 2013, a detailed report on 
     the performance of the Department's balanced workforce 
     strategy, including numbers of insourcing or outsourcing 
     decisions by component for each of fiscal years 2009-2012, 
     associated savings or costs resulting from those decisions, 
     and methodology and metrics used in the analysis.

                       Buy American Requirements

       The Secretary is directed to submit, as part of the fiscal 
     year 2014 budget request, a detailed analysis on how the 
     Department could comply with Title VI of Section 604 of 
     Public Law 111-5, as specified in the House report.

                    Front-End Technology Assessment

       The Under Secretaries for Management and for Science and 
     Technology are directed to develop a plan for a formal 
     technology assessment of alternatives for all non-information 
     technology acquisitions and to brief the Committees as stated 
     in the Senate report.

                 Office of the Cheif Financial Officer

       The bill provides $51,500,000 for ``Office of the Chief 
     Financial Officer.'' Within this, $5,000,000 shall remain 
     available until September 30, 2014, to support financial 
     systems modernization efforts. The amount provided under this 
     heading does not include $144,000, as requested, for a 
     civilian pay raise. Should the President provide a civilian 
     pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the cost of the pay 
     raise will be absorbed within existing appropriations for 
     fiscal year 2013. A new general provision in this Act 
     withholding 20 percent of this appropriation from obligation 
     until the Committees receive the reports and plans required 
     in this Act to be submitted on or before May 1, 2013.

                    Financial Systems Modernization

       The Chief Financial Officer is directed to continue 
     providing briefings to the Committees at least semiannually 
     on its financial systems modernization efforts, and to 
     highlight any funding, schedule, or implementation issues 
     relevant to continued progress. Because the Coast Guard and 
     ICE are planning improvements for their core financial 
     systems, the Office of the Chief Financial Officer, in tandem 
     with the Coast Guard and ICE, are to brief the Committees on 
     the preferred solutions before funds can be obligated to 
     initiate improvement efforts. The briefing is to include 
     total resource requirements by fiscal year and a timeline for 
     implementation with discrete milestones.

                      Annual Budget Justifications

       The Chief Financial Officer is directed to ensure that 
     fiscal year 2014 budget justifications for classified and 
     unclassified budgets of all Department components are 
     submitted concurrent with the President's budget submission 
     to Congress. The justifications shall include detailed 
     information and explanations that reflect the requirements 
     set forth under this heading in the Senate report. The 
     Department is directed to submit a Future Years Homeland 
     Security Program budget as specified in the House report. In 
     addition, the Department is directed to inform the Committees 
     of the base funding level of any activity for which the 
     budget request proposes to increase or decrease funding for 
     an activity within a PPA category--and not simply cite the 
     total PPA funding level.

                      DHS Annual Financial Report

       The Department is commended for achieving a significant 
     milestone by presenting all five financial statements for 
     audit for the first time in the Department's history and 
     earning its first qualified audit opinion on a full-scope 
     audit. The Committees will closely monitor the Department's 
     progress moving forward in clearing remaining material 
     weaknesses in Financial Reporting, Information Technology 
     Controls and Financial System Functionality, Property, Plant, 
     and Equipment, Environmental and other Liabilities, and 
     Budgetary Accounting, and achieving full compliance with the 
     Federal Managers' Financial Integrity Act of 1982 (FMFIA), 
     the Federal Financial Management Improvement Act of 1996 
     (FFMIA), the Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996, and the 
     Anti-deficiency Act (ADA).

                        Appropriations Liaisons

       The DHS Budget Officer shall serve as the primary point of 
     contact with the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations for Departmental and cross-cutting interagency 
     issues related to budget formulation and execution, with 
     component Chief Financial Officers and Budget Officers 
     serving as primary points of contact for those components, as 
     proposed in the House report.

                Office of the Chief Information Officer

       The bill provides $243,732,000 for ``Office of the Chief 
     Information Officer.'' The amount provided under this heading 
     does not include $200,000, as requested, for a civilian pay 
     raise. Should the President provide a civilian pay raise for 
     2013, it is assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be 
     absorbed within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013. 
     Language is continued requiring the submission of a multi-
     year investment justification and management plan. This plan 
     is intended to cover investments funded through this account 
     as well as those overseen by the CIO through the Working 
     Capital Fund (WCF). However, the plan should not include 
     investments funded under other appropriations, as such 
     information is provided in other reports. The CIO is not 
     required to keep the Committees informed about developments 
     in mitigating insider threats, as proposed by the House, as 
     this matter is addressed elsewhere in the Department.
       The amount provided for this appropriation by PPA is as 
     follows:
Salaries and Expenses......................................$118,000,000
Information Technology Services..............................27,600,000
Infrastructure and Security Activities.......................56,000,000
Homeland Secure Data Network.................................42,132,000
                                                       ________________
                                                       
    Total, Office of the Chief Information Officer.........$243,732,000

                         Data Center Migration

       The bill provides $55,000,000 for data center migration 
     under a general provision in Title V of this Act. The 
     Department is directed to continue to brief the Committees 
     quarterly on data center migration status and plans for 
     further migration in fiscal year 2014.

                  HSPD -12/Trusted Internet Connection

       Given the significant investment that will be required to 
     transition the Department to logical access as required by 
     Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12, the Department 
     is directed to submit an implementation plan that includes 
     estimated costs and deployment milestones by component no 
     later than April 3, 2013. The Department is also directed to 
     provide semiannual briefings to the Committees on its 
     progress in developing trusted internet connections, in lieu 
     of quarterly briefings on OneNet implementation and Networx 
     migration proposed in the Senate report.

                        Analysts and Operations

       A total of $322,280,000 is provided for ``Analysis and 
     Operations,'' of which $94,359,000 shall remain available 
     until September 30, 2014, and of which not to exceed $3,825 
     shall be for official reception and representation expenses. 
     No additional funding is provided for a civilian pay raise. 
     Should the President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, 
     it is assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013. The 
     requested increase in executive service salaries for the 
     Office of Operations Coordination and Planning is denied as 
     is the requested increase in funding associated with the Air 
     Domain Intelligence Integration Element. In addition, 
     $1,800,000 of prior year balances is rescinded. Other funding 
     details are included within the accompanying classified 
     annex.
       As detailed in the Senate report, the Chief Intelligence 
     Officer is directed to submit an expenditure plan for fiscal 
     year 2013 no later than 60 days after the date of enactment 
     of this Act. Furthermore, the Office of Intelligence and 
     Analysis is directed to continue to provide annual briefings 
     on the State and Local Fusion Center Program, as specified in 
     the Senate report.

                      Office of Inspector General

       The bill provides $145,164,000 for ``Office of Inspector 
     General,'' including $121,164,000 for direct appropriations 
     and $24,000,000 transferred from the Federal Emergency 
     Management Agency ``Disaster Relief Fund'' (DRF) for audits 
     and investigations related to that funding. The amount 
     provided under this heading does not include $400,000, as 
     requested, for a civilian pay raise. Should the President 
     provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the 
     cost of the pay raise will be absorbed within existing 
     appropriations for fiscal year 2013. The OIG is directed to 
     submit a plan for expenditure of all funds no later than 30 
     days after the date of enactment of this Act and to include 
     DRF transfers in the CFO's monthly budget execution reports 
     submitted to the Committees, which shall satisfy the 
     requirements for notification of DRF transfers under a 
     general provision in Title V of this Act.

                        Integrity Investigations

       Within the total provided, an increase of $3,000,000 is 
     provided for integrity investigations. The fiscal year 2013 
     expenditure plan should identify the total funds dedicated to 
     integrity investigations and their intended purpose.

                               GAO Review

       The Committees are concerned that the current organization 
     of the OIG may not allow for adequate independence of the 
     OIG's inspections and evaluations function, and that current 
     organizational reporting lines hinder the timely and complete 
     delivery of information to OIG leadership. Recent 
     developments at OIG that have left many senior positions 
     occupied by acting heads have adversely affected OIG's 
     ability to manage its growing workload, and raised questions 
     about its effectiveness and reliability in conducting 
     investigative operations for which it has been assigned 
     unique jurisdiction within DHS. This has occurred at a time 
     when the workload for OIG is growing, compounded by the need 
     to address the potential of fraud associated with ever 
     increasing disaster assistance and the highly sensitive issue 
     of integrity investigations in the Department, particularly 
     with regard to border security operations. GAO is directed to 
     undertake a review of (1) the organizational structure of the 
     OIG; (2) how OIG is organized to report the results of 
     audits, investigations, and inspections and evaluations; and 
     (3) whether these functions are properly placed within the 
     organizational structure of OIG to ensure compliance with 
     applicable independence standards. The review should be 
     completed by December 1, 2013.

          TITLE II--SECURITY, ENFORCEMENT, AND INVESTIGATIONS

                   U.S. Customs and Border Protection


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       A total of $8,293,351,000 is provided for ``Salaries and 
     Expenses.'' The funding level reflects changes in the 
     activities supported by this appropriation. In addition, the 
     bill institutes a new PPA structure and distribution for 
     greater accountability.
       The bill provides $315,000,000 in appropriated funds to 
     rectify CBP's salary shortfall, created by the flawed budget 
     request that incorrectly assumed CBP access to fee revenues 
     and demonstrated inexcusably poor budget development by CBP. 
     Specifically, the President's budget request for fiscal year 
     2013 assumes that CBP has access to $110,000,000 in fee 
     revenues pursuant to the Colombia Free Trade Agreement's 
     elimination of certain exemptions to the Consolidated Omnibus 
     Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA) fees. While the 
     fees are being collected today from travelers entering the 
     United States, the fees are not accessible to CBP. Further, 
     the shortfall created by this inaccessibility persists 
     annually until fiscal year 2022. The Department is directed, 
     in coordination with the Office of Management and Budget 
     (OMB), to include a means of access to these fees in the 
     fiscal year 2014 budget request and beyond, with appropriate 
     offsets. The gap cannot be filled by appropriated funds and 
     trade-offs within CBP accounts into the future.
       Compounding this deficit, CBP failed to adequately estimate 
     its salary needs for its operational workforce resulting in 
     an estimated $214,000,000 shortage in fiscal year 2013. After 
     months of unanswered questions from OMB, DHS, and CBP, the 
     House Appropriations Committee undertook an audit of CBP's 
     budget development and execution processes that revealed 
     significant weaknesses. The Department is directed to ensure 
     the fiscal year 2014 request fully funds CBP's operational 
     workforce and mission needs. Further, the Committees will 
     continue to work with CBP in the coming months to ensure the 
     weaknesses are addressed.
       The CBP funding level reflects savings and deferments 
     proposed by CBP to reduce the shortfall, including: 
     $50,000,000 in rent savings and deferrals; $10,000,000 in 
     project reprioritization and cancellations taken from 
     Facilities Construction and Sustainment; and $35,889,000 from 
     deferment of vehicle replacement. While the Committees are 
     concerned about longer term deferment of vehicle replacement, 
     CBP currently has a sufficient, well-maintained fleet for 
     fiscal year 2013. CBP proposed other, internal offsets that 
     were wholly unacceptable. No funds are included for the Joint 
     Operations Division created by CBP in 2011.
       The amount provided under this heading does not include the 
     full amount requested for a civilian pay raise. Should the 
     President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is 
     assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013. However, 
     to avoid exacerbating CBP's pay shortfall, the bill provides 
     $19,558,000 across the appropriate PPAs and in the ``Air and 
     Marine Operations'' appropriation as a contingency for a 
     potential pay raise to cover operational personnel. Should 
     the President decide not to institute the pay raise, CBP 
     shall apply those funds to other operational needs, in 
     accordance with a general provision in Title V and with 
     appropriate notification to the Committees.
       The bill also restructures the Headquarters Management and 
     Administration PPAs to provide greater visibility into CBP's 
     expenditures, as outlined in the House report. The new PPA 
     structure is provided in the table listed below. In the 
     fiscal year 2014 budget request, CBP is directed to 
     distribute the working capital fund expenditures among the 
     PPAs as appropriate to reflect the actual costs to each CBP 
     office rather than including a total in the Administration 
     PPA.
       Further, funds in existing PPAs across the ``Salaries and 
     Expenses'' appropriation are redistributed to more closely 
     align to offices, as outlined in the House report. For 
     example, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) is funded 
     for its activities in the Automated Targeting Systems (ATS) 
     and Inspection and Detection Technology Investments PPAs, in 
     addition to the funds in the ``Automation Modernization'' 
     appropriation that now contains OIT's salaries and expenses.
       Border Security Inspections and Trade Facilitation 
     (Inspections) is funded at $3,206,458,000, including 
     $215,000,000 to address part of the salary shortfall noted 
     above; $5,747,000 for prior year annualization of CBP officer 
     staffing enhancements; $14,076,000 for annualization of CBP 
     officer staff for new ports of entry and enhanced operations; 
     $10,000,000 as requested for enhancing intellectual property 
     rights enforcement efforts; $13,032,000 to re-baseline the 
     Container Security Initiative; realignment of funds to the 
     Other International Programs PPA from International Cargo 
     Screening; and consolidation of funds into the ATS and 
     National Targeting Center PPAs to more fully display the 
     costs of those activities. Other International Programs is 
     reduced by $2,218,000, as recommended in the Senate report. 
     As included in the House report, $12,284,000 is provided to 
     the Office of Field Operations for its entry-exit policy and 
     operations responsibilities. CBP is expected to maintain no 
     less than 21,775 CBP officers, a number adjusted by CBP from 
     prior year targets to account for all CBP officers as 
     intended.
       Border Security and Control between Ports of Entry is 
     funded at $3,705,735,000, which reflects an $8,000,000 
     decrease to transfer responsibility for detainee medical 
     costs to ICE, $11,500,000 in cost savings for detainee 
     transportation, $100,000,000 to address part of the salary 
     shortfall noted above, and full funding for the Office of 
     Border Patrol and the Joint Field Command. This level 
     continues to support a Border Patrol agent force of 21,370.
       The Air and Marine Operations PPA is moved to the ``Air and 
     Marine Operations'' appropriation and renamed the Salaries 
     and Expenses PPA. As outlined in the House report, the PPA 
     does not include funds for the Joint Operations Division and 
     the Joint Field Command.
       The Committees reject the proposal to move the United 
     States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-
     VISIT) from the National Protection and Programs Directorate 
     (NPPD) to CBP. Instead, the bill realigns the policy and 
     operational responsibilities of US-VISIT while retaining the 
     information technology systems in a new Office of Biometric 
     Identity Management (OBIM) in NPPD discussed later.
       CBP has long been subject to limitations, terms and 
     conditions on overtime funds that are carried in the Salaries 
     and Expenses appropriation. Funds moved from the Salaries and 
     Expenses appropriation into the ``Automation Modernization'' 
     and ``Air and Marine Operations'' appropriations are still 
     subject to those limitations, terms and conditions.
       The amount provided for the ``Salaries and Expenses'' 
     appropriation by PPA is as follows:

Total, Salaries and Expenses.............................$8,293,351,000

                             Financial Plan

       CBP is directed to submit its fiscal year 2013 financial 
     plan by office no later than 30 days after the date of 
     enactment of this Act, consistent with the new distribution 
     and PPAs. Additionally, CBP shall include the working capital 
     fund estimates by office and PPA.

                    Management of User Fee Revenues

       CBP has not demonstrated the ability to manage fluctuations 
     in fee funding levels. Given that approximately 37 percent of 
     CBP officers are funded by user fees, the failure to properly 
     project and manage these fees has a significant operational 
     impact--not only on CBP but on the traveling public and on 
     our national security posture. To address these failures and 
     to assist the Committees in their oversight, the Commissioner 
     is directed to take the actions required by the House report 
     on user fee management. In addition, as required by the 
     Senate report, CBP shall brief on the use of APHIS fee 
     revenues and report on steps to advance its relationship with 
     port authorities on staffing.

                              Fee Balances

       As directed in the House report, CBP shall report on the 
     final determination regarding the availability of 
     $639,400,000 in unobligated fee balances and the path for 
     eliminating them from CBP's financial statements. 
     Unfortunately, these funds are not accessible to CBP; 
     however, the agency has not responded adequately to the 
     question of availability raised by GAO.

[[Page S1550]]

                      Innovation and Facilitation

       CBP is directed to continue considering and instituting 
     innovations to more efficiently process legitimate travel and 
     trade, such as those outlined in the House report. Further, 
     the bill provides funds above the request toward this end, 
     including $10,000,000 for preclearance operations and 
     $2,500,000 for improved signage and information about the 
     entry process, as recommended in the Senate report, and 
     $4,500,000 for Global Entry expansion, kiosks, and promotion, 
     as recommended in the House and Senate reports. No later than 
     60 days after the date of enactment of this Act, CBP shall 
     brief the Committees in detail on its full fiscal year 2013 
     funding for these activities as well as the use of the 
     increased funds.

                        Workload Staffing Model

       The Department is directed to immediately submit the CBP 
     workload staffing model for Field Operations required by the 
     joint explanatory statement accompanying Public Law 112-74. 
     This report, which has languished in a bureaucratic clearance 
     ``do loop,'' is necessary for a responsible dialogue on CBP 
     mission needs, including any demonstrated staffing needs.

                        Cargo Security Strategy

       The bill provides an additional $3,000,000 for the Customs-
     Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program to 
     ensure audits of participants are conducted as needed based 
     on a risk determination. No later than 60 days after the date 
     of enactment of this Act, CBP shall brief the Committees in 
     detail on its full fiscal year 2013 funding for C-TPAT as 
     well as the use of the increased funds.
       Further, the Committees concur with the direction and 
     concerns outlined in the House report regarding the cargo 
     security strategy and look forward to seeing the Secretary 
     develop and propose a meaningful alternative to 100 percent 
     scanning.

                               Targeting

       The bill provides an additional $3,000,000 for National 
     Targeting Center (NTC) operations to cover pre-adjudication 
     vetting of visa applicants. No later than 60 days after the 
     date of enactment of this Act, CBP shall brief the Committees 
     in detail on its full fiscal year 2013 funding for NTC as 
     well as the use of the increased funds.
       As required in the House report, CBP is directed to provide 
     a detailed accounting of funds executed by the Targeting 
     Analysis Systems Project Office no later than 30 days after 
     the date of enactment of this Act. CBP shall also include an 
     annual update of this information with the President's budget 
     request.

                    Entry-Exit Policy and Operations

       CBP is the DHS lead for entry-exit policy and operations, 
     as recommended by the House. Responsibility for implementing 
     a biometric exit program lies with CBP. Within 120 days after 
     the date of enactment of this Act, CBP, in conjunction with 
     OBIM and any other appropriate partners, such as the Science 
     and Technology Directorate, shall report to the Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations, the Judiciary, and Homeland 
     Security and Governmental Affairs and the House Committees on 
     Appropriations, the Judiciary, and Homeland Security on the 
     Department's tangible progress in implementing an enhanced 
     biographic exit system and biometric exit planning. The 
     report shall include the results of the Canadian pilot 
     programs and provide an update on the Mexican pilot program. 
     The Committees on Appropriations shall be briefed 
     semiannually on exit thereafter.

        Border Patrol and Border Security Between Ports of Entry

       CBP shall submit a report to the Committees no later than 
     90 days after the date of enactment of this Act on its five-
     year staffing and deployment plan for the Border Patrol. In 
     addition, the budget justification for fiscal year 2014 shall 
     include a plan detailing staffing and funding for the 
     Northern Border. Further, CBP is prohibited from closing 
     Border Patrol stations in Texas, as proposed in the budget 
     request. CBP and ICE have not produced a transition plan to 
     ensure the immigration enforcement needs of local sheriffs 
     will be supported without a Border Patrol presence.

                     Joint Field Command Structure

       While CBP allocated funds within its budget for the Joint 
     Field Command (JFC), it is important to reassess the cost-
     benefit of operating the JFC, particularly as CBP considers 
     other joint operation and coordination structures and 
     confronts enormous budget challenges. The need for 
     operational coordination within CBP is no less imperative 
     than its coordination with ICE, Coast Guard, and other law 
     enforcement agencies active in a particular area of 
     responsibility. Therefore, CBP is directed to brief the 
     Committees, no later than 60 days after the date of enactment 
     of this Act, on all plans, milestones, and costs for 
     establishing and operating joint field efforts, as required 
     in the House report. In addition, the brief shall include the 
     cost-benefit of operating the JFC.

                           Integrity Programs

       The bill supports CBP efforts to reduce and prevent 
     corruption, as well as ensure that its ethics, integrity, and 
     conduct programs include training at all stages of an agent's 
     or officer's career. Over the past five years, as the Federal 
     law enforcement presence on the Nation's borders has 
     increased due to major increases in hiring of Border Patrol 
     agents and other law enforcement officers, Congress has 
     provided resources above the Presidents' requests for the 
     OIG, CBP, and ICE to ensure that a greater level of scrutiny 
     is focused on preventing officer corruption and enhancing 
     training on public integrity. Given these efforts, combined 
     with the full implementation of the Anti-Border Corruption 
     Act of 2011 (Public Law 111-338), sufficient funds were 
     requested in the budget and are provided by this Act to 
     continue rigorous attention to public integrity of DHS law 
     enforcement personnel. CBP is expected to work with OIG and 
     ICE to aggressively investigate reports of fraud and to 
     provide continuous integrity training to current as well as 
     new employees. CBP is directed to continue briefing the 
     Committees on a semiannual basis on integrity efforts, per 
     the House report. In addition, GAO is directed to report on 
     CBP's integrity program no later than 120 days after the date 
     of enactment of this Act, as required in the House report.

                      Workers' Compensation Plans

       CBP is directed to brief the Committees on its progress in 
     implementing the OIG recommendations and related issues, as 
     required by the House report, no later than April 3, 2013.

                      Preventing Human Trafficking

       The Committees strongly support DHS efforts to broaden 
     human trafficking awareness, including through CBP's Blue 
     Lightning Initiative. In lieu of the level recommended by the 
     House, CBP shall fund its Blue Campaign efforts, as 
     requested, and brief the Committees, as required by the House 
     report.

                                Training

       Per the House report, CBP is directed to brief the 
     Committees on its corrective action plan and the status of 
     implementation of recommendations contained in GAO-12-269, 
     not later than April 3, 2013. In addition, GAO is directed to 
     follow up on its findings one year after its release to 
     identify progress that has been made and any remaining 
     deficiencies.


                        AUTOMATION MODERNIZATION

       A total of $719,866,000 is provided for ``Automation 
     Modernization.'' Of that amount, $394,340,000 is for 
     Information Technology, which includes salaries and expenses 
     for OIT; $138,794,000 is for the Automated Commercial 
     Environment (ACE); and $186,732,000, as requested, is for 
     Current Operations Protection and Processing Support. As 
     provided in a general provision in this Act, CBP is required 
     to submit an updated multi-year investment and management 
     plan for all funds executed by OIT that are now largely 
     consolidated in ``Automation Modernization.''
       The amount provided under this heading does not include the 
     requested funding for a civilian pay raise. Should the 
     President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is 
     assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013.

                               Briefings

       CBP is directed to continue briefing the Committees on a 
     quarterly basis on ACE progress, including the information 
     directed by the House and Senate reports. CBP and ICE are 
     directed to jointly brief the Committees on the status of 
     TECS modernization efforts, as required by the House and 
     Senate reports, on a semiannual basis with the first briefing 
     no later than 60 days after the date of enactment of this 
     Act.


        BORDER SECURITY FENCING, INFRASTRUCTURE, AND TECHNOLOGY

       A total of $324,099,000 is provided for ``Border Security 
     Fencing, Infrastructure, and Technology'' (BSFIT). No funds 
     are provided for further environmental mitigation efforts 
     with the Department of Interior.
       The Committees remain concerned about the lack of progress 
     in deploying critical tools and technology that the Border 
     Patrol clearly needs to secure the border. The schedule for 
     awarding a contract for Integrated Fixed Towers (IFT) as well 
     as to upgrade and purchase Remote Video Surveillance Systems 
     (RVSS) continues to slip. In fact, CBP's schedule does not 
     show full deployment of RVSS and IFT before fiscal years 2014 
     and 2016 respectively--years after the original timelines. 
     Given these delays, CBP is directed to continue quarterly 
     briefings and weekly notifications on procurement actions, as 
     directed in the House report. In addition, CBP is currently 
     evaluating proposals submitted for IFT, a process that shall 
     include a demonstration evaluation. After the demonstration 
     phase, CBP is directed to brief DHS leadership, OMB, and the 
     Committees before a contract award for IFT that would specify 
     the number and pace of deployments. The briefing is not 
     intended to involve procurement-sensitive information; rather 
     the focus is on understanding CBP's intention regarding the 
     number and pace of deployments rather than vendor-specific 
     information.
       As of October 1, 2012, CBP has $400,000,000 in prior year 
     unobligated balances in BSFIT in addition to the funds 
     provided for fiscal year 2013. As a result, the bill includes 
     a rescission of $73,232,000, to ensure that funds do not 
     languish unused for years. As recommended in the House 
     report, those funds are applied to CBP Air and Marine 
     operations, supporting a significant increase in proposed 
     flight hours. These funds will provide immediate border 
     security operational benefit while enabling CBP to maintain 
     its

[[Page S1551]]

     IFT investments and deployments as currently planned.


                       AIR AND MARINE OPERATIONS

       A total of $799,006,000 is provided for ``Air and Marine 
     Operations.'' The funding includes $283,570,000 for a new 
     Salaries and Expenses PPA moved from the CBP ``Salaries and 
     Expenses'' appropriation; $397,399,000 for Operations and 
     Maintenance to restore flight hours, including to restore 
     unmanned aerial systems (UAS) flight hours above the fiscal 
     year 2011 level; and $118,037,000 for Procurement. The 
     procurement funds include an additional $21,500,000 for 
     purchase of an additional multi-enforcement aircraft; 
     $39,000,000 for the service life extension of the P-3 fleet; 
     and $18,567,000 for enhanced sensor capabilities for UAS.
       The amount provided under this heading does not include the 
     full amount requested for a civilian pay raise. Should the 
     President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is 
     assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013. However, 
     to avoid exacerbating CBP's pay shortfall, the bill provides 
     $870,000, as part of the total $19,558,000 provided to CBP, 
     in the Salaries and Expenses PPA as a contingency to cover 
     operational personnel. Should the President decide not to 
     institute the pay raise, CBP shall apply those funds to other 
     operational needs, in accordance with a general provision in 
     Title V of this Act and with appropriate notification to the 
     Committees.

                U.S. Security Interests in the Caribbean

       There are significant concerns about public safety and 
     security in the Caribbean, as outlined in the House report, 
     and it is excepted that the Secretary will allocate 
     resources, assets, and personnel to Puerto Rico and the U.S. 
     Virgin Islands in a manner and to a degree consistent with 
     those concerns. Further, DHS is encouraged to work with the 
     Department of Defense to address surveillance capabilities, 
     as specified in the House report under a different heading.


                 CONSTRUCTION AND FACILITIES MANAGEMENT

       A total of $233,563,000 is provided for ``Construction and 
     Facilities Management.'' Of that amount, $176,214,000 is for 
     Facilities Construction and Sustainment and $57,349,000 is 
     for Program Oversight and Management. Per the Senate report, 
     the Department is directed to encourage the use of small 
     businesses, including the use of public-private partnerships, 
     in all phases of the contracting process for construction and 
     renovation of ports of entry.

                U.S. Immigration and customs enforcement


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       A total of $5,394,402,000 is provided for ``Salaries and 
     Expenses'' to ensure robust enforcement of our Nation's 
     immigration laws. Within this amount, the bill supports 
     maintenance of no fewer than 34,000 detention beds and funds 
     the 287(g) program at the fiscal year 2012 level of 
     $68,321,000 across PPAs in this appropriation. Additionally, 
     $138,249,000 is provided to complete nationwide deployment of 
     the Secure Communities program. The bill includes the 
     transfer of overstay analysis from US-VISIT to ICE and 
     increase the amount proposed for transfer to Domestic

     Further, the amount provided under this heading does not 
     include $14,083,000, as requested, for a civilian pay raise. 
     Should the President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, 
     it is assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013.
       The amount provided for this appropriation by PPA is as

             ICE Headquarters Management and Administration

       The bill provides $380,508,000 for ICE Headquarters 
     Management and Administration. ICE has failed to submit the 
     multi-year investment and management plan required by Public 
     Law 112-74 for funds executed by the Office of Information 
     Technology. Submission of that plan is expected immediately. 
     Timely submission of the update with the submission of the 
     fiscal year 2014 budget request is also expected, as required 
     by law.

                        Immigration Proceedings

       The bill does not include the proposed transfer authority 
     for $5,000,000 from ICE to the Executive Office for 
     Immigration Review (EOIR) to bolster the Legal Orientation 
     Program. However, given the extensive caseload pending before 
     immigration courts and the paper-intensive process, the bill 
     provides $3,000,000 in ICE ``Automation Modernization'' to 
     improve case management and electronic communication between 
     ICE and EOIR to achieve more efficient processing. Further, 
     ICE is directed to formalize its internal policy to utilize 
     digital records and provide a copy of the policy to the 
     Committees no later than 30 days after the date of enactment 
     of this Act.
       As required in the House report under this heading, ICE is 
     directed to report no later than April 3, 2013, on all 
     corrective actions and controls instituted to prevent 
     recurrence of the embezzlement and kick-back scheme uncovered 
     last year in the Office of Intelligence.

     probation to Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).

                      Combatting Human Trafficking

       The bill provides an additional $11,000,000 to support 
     ICE's efforts in countering human trafficking and human 
     smuggling. Of these funds, no less than $1,200,000 is 
     provided to further the Hidden in Plain Sight public outreach 
     campaign under the Blue Campaign umbrella. ICE is directed, 
     no later than 90 days after the date of enactment of this 
     Act, to brief the Committees in detail on its full fiscal 
     year 2013 funding for efforts related to countering human 
     smuggling and human trafficking as well as its plans for 
     these additional funds.

                     Law Enforcement Support Center

       The bill provides no less than $34,900,000, as requested, 
     for the Law Enforcement Support Center.

                           Overstay Analysis

       Of the total provided in Domestic Investigations, 
     $19,917,000 is for overstay analysis activities previously 
     performed by US-VISIT. ICE is the appropriate mission owner 
     for visa-overstay investigations and operations. As required 
     in the House report, ICE is directed to provide semiannual 
     briefings on the overstay backlog elimination effort; to 
     ensure that similar backlogs do not arise again in the 
     future; and to update the Committees on its overstay 
     enforcement strategy. Further, ICE shall brief the Committees 
     no later than April 3, 2013, on the number of visa overstays 
     in the United States by nationality and the actionable 
     measures ICE will take to reduce the overstay population, as 
     directed in the House report.

                          Worksite Enforcement

       The bill provides $134,626,000 for worksite enforcement 
     activities, as requested, and requires ICE to follow the 
     direction in the House report under this heading.

                    Trade Compliance and Enforcement

       The bill provides no less than $10,187,000 for the 
     Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, as 
     requested. As required by the Senate report, CBP and ICE are 
     directed to jointly brief the Committees by May 1, 2013, on 
     the ongoing efforts to improve commercial trade enforcement 
     and intellectual property rights.

                      International Investigations

       A total of $34,561,000 is provided for the Visa Security 
     Program (VSP), including an additional $2,000,000 to support 
     pre-adjudication vetting of visa applicants. ICE is directed 
     to update the Committees no later than 90 days after the date 
     of enactment of this Act on the VSP.
       Of the amount provided to International Operations, no less 
     than $8,000,000 shall be for ICE's vetted units. ICE is 
     directed to specifically budget for these units in the fiscal 
     year 2014 budget request.

           Cooperation from Foreign Countries on Repatriation

       The Committees remain concerned about the public safety 
     impacts of the release of certain criminal aliens stemming 
     from the decision in Zadvydas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678, 121 S. 
     Ct. 2491 (2001), as outlined in the House report. ICE shall 
     provide a detailed report on this issue, as directed in the 
     House report, no later than 90 days after the date of 
     enactment of this Act.

                          Fugitive Operations

     Program, as pecified by the House.

                       Alternatives to Detention

       A total of $96,557,000 is provided for Alternatives to 
     Detention (ATD) programs. As required in the House report, 
     ICE is directed to

[[Page S1552]]

     address factors that may hamper program goals in its 
     utilization of program funds; to expand the Fast Track pilot 
     program working with EOIR; to identify and implement best 
     practices for more effective processing of the non-detained 
     docket; and to utilize the appropriate level of supervision 
     warranted by the individual enrolled in ATD. As required in 
     the Senate report, ICE is directed to brief the Committees 
     quarterly on the Fast Track pilots and post on its website 
     any contractor evaluations and OIG reports related to the ATD 
     program.

                           Secure Communities

       A total of $138,249,000 is provided to complete nationwide 
     deployment of Secure Communities. ICE is directed to update 
     the Committees no later than 30 days after the date of 
     enactment of this Act on jurisdictions failing to honor ICE 
     detainers, as required in the House report. Further, as 
     directed in the House report, ICE shall update the Committees 
     on its effort to digitize paper fingerprint cards from legacy 
     immigration files, no later than April 3, 2013.

                          Detention Standards

       As required by the House report, ICE is directed to 
     consider the cost implications of changes to its detention 
     standard requirements and budget accordingly.

                U.S. Citizen Children of Removed Aliens

       Within 30 days of the date of enactment of this Act, ICE is 
     to brief the Committees on its capabilities to identify, 
     track, and report on the status of unaccompanied alien 
     children after the removal or departure of their parent or 
     legal guardian and related issues, as directed in the Senate 
     report.


                        AUTOMATION MODERNIZATION

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

       A total of $33,500,000 is provided for ``Automation 
     Modernization,'' as requested and including an increase of 
     $3,000,000 above the request to improve case management and 
     electronic communication between ICE and EOIR to achieve more 
     efficient processing. Given the interdependencies in ICE and 
     EOIR systems, ICE may transfer up to $1,000,000 to EOIR to 
     further this effort.


                              CONSTRUCTION

       A total of $5,000,000 is provided for ``Construction,'' as 
     requested.


                 TRANSPORTATION SECURITY ADMINISTRATION

                           AVIATION SECURITY

       A total of $5,052,620,000 is provided for ``Aviation 
     Security.'' The amount does not include $13,823,000, as 
     requested, for a civilian pay raise. Should the President 
     provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the 
     cost of the pay raise will be absorbed within existing 
     appropriations for fiscal year 2013.
       In addition to the amounts appropriated, a mandatory 
     appropriation totaling $250,000,000 is available through the 
     Aviation Security Capital Fund. Statutory language reflects 
     the collection of $2,070,000,000 from aviation security fees, 
     as authorized.
The amount provided for this appropriation by PPA is as follows:

                          Privatized Screening

       The bill provides a total of $147,690,000 for the Screening 
     Partnership Program (SPP), reflecting an increase of 
     $4,500,000 to address increased costs for current 
     participants and to provide some funding for airports that 
     may request to join the program. TSA is directed to brief the 
     Committees no later than 90 days after the date of enactment 
     of this Act on how it is complying with the FAA 
     reauthorization law (Public Law 112-95) provisions regarding 
     evaluation of SPP applications, and the extent to which it is 
     implementing GAO recommendations to compare cost and 
     performance of SPP airports and non-SPP airports. The brief 
     should also cover how TSA is addressing court rulings related 
     to its administration of the SPP program. TSA is to provide 
     the Committees quarterly reports on its execution of the SPP 
     program and processing of applications for participation. In 
     addition, as TSA implements new statutory requirements for 
     privatized screening, TSA is expected to disapprove any new 
     contract application where privatized screening does not 
     currently exist if the annual cost of the contract exceeds 
     the annual cost to TSA of providing Federal screening 
     services.

             Screener Personnel, Compensation, and Benefits

       The provides $3,078,709,000 for Screener Personnel, 
     Compensation, and Benefits. This reflects no funding for the 
     fiscal year 2013 pay raise, as noted above, as well as 
     reductions in costs due to delays in deployment of the 
     advanced imaging technology (AIT), shifts in workload to SPP 
     airports, and efficiencies from checkpoint and baggage 
     processing streamlining. Some of these efficiencies may come 
     in the form of behavior detection officers (BDOs) being used 
     to execute the travel document checker function in some 
     cases, which may increase efficiency and possibly reduce 
     duplicative positions.

                           Checkpoint Support

       A total of $115,204,000 is provided for Checkpoint Support. 
     The reduction below the request is justified due to an 
     identical amount in unobligated balances that have remained 
     unspent for over five years.

                   Advanced Imaging Technology Study

       As detailed in the Senate report, the Secretary is 
     instructed to allocate resources for an independent study of 
     the potential health risks associated with the use of AIT 
     scanning machines at airport security checkpoints, including 
     backscatter x-ray and millimeter wave technologies. The study 
     is to be conducted by an independent laboratory selected by 
     the Secretary. In addition, the Secretary shall convene an 
     independent panel of experts to evaluate the results of this 
     study to consider any risk posed by AIT from a public health 
     perspective in addition to the risk to each airline 
     passenger. Among other things, the study shall evaluate the 
     possible malfunctions and fail-safe mechanisms of such 
     machines as well as the radiation emissions of AIT. The 
     independent panel should evaluate the results of the study 
     and also review risks posed by AIT to certain, more 
     vulnerable passengers screened or affected by such machines. 
     Upon completion, the Secretary shall submit to Congress a 
     report that contains the results of the study and evaluation. 
     Further, the Secretary is directed to ensure that easily 
     readable signs or equivalent electronic displays are placed 
     at the front of airline passenger checkpoint queues where AIT 
     scanning machines are used to alert passengers to the use of 
     such technology and screening alternatives available.

              Risk-Based Approaches to Passenger Screening

       TSA is directed to brief the Committees on a semiannual 
     basis, beginning no later than 90 days after the date of 
     enactment of this Act, on progress in developing and applying 
     trusted traveler approaches and any legal or budgetary 
     impediments to their implementation. The briefing should also 
     identify savings and efficiencies generated by these efforts. 
     In addition, TSA is directed to include in the briefing: (1) 
     its plans to expand Pre-Check to additional airlines and 
     passengers who currently do not qualify for the program, 
     including a timeline and milestones; (2) statistics detailing 
     the incremental progress being made to increase the eligible 
     population of passengers that have access to Pre-Check and 
     expand the number of airport locations where Pre-Check is 
     available; (3) key indicators of success such as passenger 
     satisfaction data; (4) projected cost savings from Pre-Check 
     and other risk-based screening initiatives; (5) a description 
     of efforts to ensure the public is fully aware of the 
     program; (6) wait times for Pre-Check and non-Pre-Check 
     lanes; and (7) a description of security measures being 
     implemented to ensure that eligible passengers in the Pre-
     Check program are truly low-risk. This last point is also 
     addressed in the classified annex.

                          Passenger Complaints

       As highlighted in the Senate report, concerns remain about 
     the process TSA has established for resolving passenger 
     complaints. As directed by the joint explanatory statement 
     accompanying Public Law 112-74, GAO recently completed a 
     review of TSA's policies and procedures for resolving 
     passenger complaints and whether current resolution processes 
     conform to independent standards. GAO made several 
     recommendations to TSA as a result of its review, such as 
     establishing: (1) a consistent policy for receiving 
     complaints; (2) a process for systematically analyzing 
     information on complaints from all mechanisms; (3) a policy 
     for informing passengers about the screening complaint 
     process; and (4) mechanisms to share information on best 
     practices among airports. TSA is to brief the Committees no 
     later than 60 days after the date of enactment of this Act on 
     its efforts to address the recommendations in the GAO report. 
     The Committee is also aware of efforts TSA has undertaken to 
     ensure the complaint resolution process is independent, such 
     as referring cases directly to its Ombudsman Division and 
     training current employees to be passenger advocates. TSA is 
     required to fund these efforts at a level that will enable 
     them to respond fully to passengers seeking assistance.

                           Security Breaches

       As detailed in the Senate report, the findings in the DHS 
     OIG Investigation Report

[[Page S1553]]

     entitled ``Transportation Security Administration's Efforts 
     to Identify and Track Security Breaches at Our Nation's 
     Airports'' are of concern, and the TSA Administrator is 
     therefore directed to submit a report to the Committees not 
     later than 60 days after the date of enactment of this Act as 
     specified in the Senate report.

                      Explosives Detection Systems

       The bill provides a total of $99,930,000 for Explosives 
     Detection Systems (EDS) Procurement and Installation.
       TSA is directed to brief the Committees no later than 60 
     days after the date of enactment of this Act on its plans to 
     upgrade all EDS units procured and deployed with its 2010 
     detection standards, and how it will address the concerns 
     highlighted in the GAO report (GAO-11-740). Statutory 
     language is included under the ``Transportation Security 
     Support'' appropriation withholding the obligation of 
     $20,000,000 from headquarters administration until TSA 
     submits to the Committees, no later than 60 days after the 
     date of enactment of this Act, detailed expenditure plans for 
     fiscal year 2013 for checkpoint security and EDS 
     refurbishments, procurement, and installations on an airport-
     by-airport basis. The plans shall include: specific 
     technologies for purchase; program schedules and major 
     milestones; a schedule for obligation of the funds; 
     recapitalization priorities; and a table detailing actual 
     versus anticipated unobligated balances at the close of the 
     fiscal year. Further, the plan shall include a new section 
     providing details on passenger screening pilot programs that 
     are in progress or being considered for implementation in 
     fiscal year 2013, to include: a summary of the pilot program 
     that describes what the program is attempting to achieve; 
     potential capabilities and benefits of the program; the 
     airports where the pilots will be operating; funding 
     commitments; and plans for expansion. In addition, TSA is to 
     provide quarterly EDS and checkpoint expenditures briefings 
     to the Committees, including any deviations from the original 
     plan.

               Aviation Regulation and Other Enforcement

       The bill provides a total of $368,255,000 for Aviation 
     Regulation and Other Enforcement, including an increase of 
     $3,000,000 to support an increase in canine teams for 
     domestic inspections in the air cargo and aviation regulation 
     environments. When combined with a similar increase in 
     funding under the ``Surface Transportation Security'' 
     appropriation, TSA will be able to field no fewer than 50 new 
     canine teams overall. In addition, the agreement includes a 
     reduction of $6,000,000 for visible intermodal protection and 
     response (VIPR) teams, which have experienced significant 
     delays in hiring. TSA is directed to brief the Committees on 
     an updated VIPR expenditure plan for fiscal year 2013 within 
     60 days after the date of enactment of this Act and using the 
     same format provided in the March 12, 2012, report to the 
     Committees.

              Foreign Repair Station Security Regulations

       In 2003, Congress directed TSA to issue final regulations 
     to ensure the security of foreign and domestic aircraft 
     repair stations. A provision is not included affecting 
     funding for the DHS Office of General Counsel that was 
     proposed by the House, but TSA is directed to brief the 
     Committees if the final rule is not approved and published in 
     the fourth quarter of calendar year 2012, as anticipated.

                Five-Year Strategic Plan for Investments

       TSA is directed to submit a five-year budget estimate 
     within its fiscal year 2014 congressional budget 
     justification that includes projected funding levels for the 
     next five fiscal years individually for all passenger 
     screening technology acquisitions. The plan shall indicate 
     the total cost and estimated completion date for each 
     technology.

    Use of Unclaimed Money for Assistance to Military Personnel and 
                               Dependents

       Section 44945 of title 49, United States Code, enacted as 
     part of the fiscal year 2005 DHS Appropriations Act, 
     authorized and directed unclaimed money collected at airport 
     security checkpoints to be used for civil aviation security. 
     However, such collections have been little used, and Congress 
     has thus rescinded unobligated balances. The Committees 
     prefer that these funds be applied productively to an 
     important public mission, and therefore the Department and 
     TSA, in consultation with the Department of Defense, are 
     directed to submit a report to the Committees on 
     Appropriations and Armed Services of the House and the 
     Senate, the House Committee on Homeland Security, and the 
     Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation not 
     later than 90 days after the date of enactment of this Act, 
     which considers the feasibility of transferring the 
     collections to nonprofit organizations that are selected on a 
     competitive basis to operate airport centers in multiple 
     locations throughout the United States to provide a place of 
     rest and recuperation for members of the armed forces and 
     their families. The report, which shall include any 
     recommendations for new statutory language, cost estimates 
     for TSA to manage such a program, and administrative action 
     that may be required, shall also address ways to ensure small 
     airports have a mechanism for transferring unclaimed money to 
     TSA headquarters, which shall consolidate the collections.


                    SURFACE TRANSPORTATION SECURITY

       The bill provides a total of $124,418,000 for ``Surface 
     Transportation Security.'' The amount provided under this 
     heading does not include $358,000, as requested, for a 
     civilian pay raise. Should the President provide a civilian 
     pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the cost of the pay 
     raise will be absorbed within existing appropriations for 
     fiscal year 2013. Within the amount appropriated, $36,353,000 
     is provided for staffing and operations and $88,065,000 for 
     surface transportation security inspectors and canines. This 
     reflects an increase of $2,000,000 for additional surface 
     canine teams for passenger and cargo screening in the mass 
     transit and maritime domain. In combination with increased 
     funding provided under the ``Aviation Security'' 
     appropriation, TSA will be able to field no fewer than 50 new 
     canine teams overall. It also reflects a reduction of 
     $1,500,000 for VIPR teams, which have experienced significant 
     delays in hiring.


           TRANSPORTATION THREAT ASSESSMENT AND CREDENTIALING

       A total of $272,144,000 is provided for ``Transportation 
     Threat Assessment and Credentialing.'' The amount provided 
     under this heading does not include $207,000, as requested, 
     for a civilian pay raise. Should the President provide a 
     civilian pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the cost of 
     the pay raise will be absorbed within existing appropriations 
     for fiscal year 2013. To facilitate oversight, TSA is 
     directed to brief the Committees on the status of TTAC 
     Infrastructure Modernization no later than 30 days after the 
     date of enactment of this Act and quarterly thereafter, and 
     to advise the Committees of any developments that might delay 
     initial operating capacity in 2014 or to publish a Universal 
     Fee Rule.
       The amount provided for this appropriation by PPA is as 
     follows:
Secure Flight..............................................$106,935,000
Crew and Other Vetting Programs..............................85,489,000
  Subtotal, Direct Appropriations...........................192,424,000
TWIC Fees....................................................47,300,000

General Aviation at DCA.........................................100,000
  Subtotal, Fee Collections.................................$79,720,000

                              TWIC Readers

       The Coast Guard, the Department, and TSA are directed to 
     take all necessary action to expedite the completion and 
     publication of a final TWIC reader rule and to expand 
     Universal Enrollment Centers that will result in no less than 
     50 percent expansion in the number of available TWIC 
     enrollment sites.


                    TRANSPORTATION SECURITY SUPPORT

       The bill provides a total of $954,277,000 for 
     ``Transportation Security Support.'' The amount provided 
     under this heading does not include $432,000, as requested, 
     for a civilian pay raise. Should the President provide a 
     civilian pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the cost of 
     the pay raise will be absorbed within existing appropriations 
     for fiscal year 2013. Bill language, proposed by the Senate, 
     also is included to withhold $20,000,000 from obligation 
     until the TSA Administrator submits detailed expenditure 
     plans for air cargo security, checkpoint support, and EDS 
     refurbishment, procurement and installation.
The amount provided for this appropriation by PPA is as follows:
Headquarters Administration................................$276,122,000
Information Technology......................................417,196,000
Human Capital Services......................................215,829,000
Intelligence.................................................45,130,000
                                                       ________________
                                                       
  Total, Transportation Security Support...................$954,277,000

          Account Structure and Availability of Appropriations

       TSA is directed to include a proposal for account 
     restructuring with the fiscal year 2014 budget request. The 
     proposal should reflect the proposal set forth in the Senate 
     report to establish a one-year appropriation for salaries and 
     related expenses, and DHS is to continue to consult with the 
     Committees on its development of this proposal.

                         Human Capital Services

       The bill provides a total of $215,829,000 for Human Capital 
     Services. The reduction may come from advisory and assistance 
     services.


                          FEDERAL AIR MARSHALS

       A total of $907,757,000 is provided for ``Federal Air 
     Marshals'', including $793,786,000 for Management and 
     Administration and $113,971,000 for Travel and Training. The 
     amount provided under this heading does not include 
     $2,743,000, as requested, for a civilian pay raise. Should 
     the President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is 
     assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013. The 
     funding reduction reflects a readjustment in light of the 
     multiple security enhancements in aviation security put in 
     place since the Christmas Day 2009 bombing attempt. This 
     level of funding is adequate to ensure coverage of all high-
     risk international and domestic flights, and provide 
     additional discussion of this in the classified annex to this 
     statement. TSA is directed to submit a report no later than 
     120 days after the date of enactment of this Act outlining 
     the best options for leveraging the Federal

[[Page S1554]]

     law enforcement population to supplement Federal Air Marshal 
     Service (FAMS) resources, including a detailed description of 
     what the Department is doing to develop such options beyond a 
     notional phase. Further, TSA is directed to brief the 
     Committees no later than 60 days after the date of enactment 
     of this Act on its optimal mix of staff, the types and 
     frequency of flights for which FAMS coverage should be 
     provided, and any legislative or regulatory changes that 
     might be required to improve FAMS operations and overall 
     aviation security.

                              Coast Guard


                           OPERATING EXPENSES

       The bill provides a total of $7,074,782,000 for ``Operating 
     Expenses,'' including $594,000,000 for defense activities, of 
     which $254,000,000 is designated as being for overseas 
     contingency operations (OCO) and the global war on terrorism 
     (GWOT). Funds provided in support of GWOT and OCO under this 
     heading may be allocated notwithstanding section 503 in Title 
     V of this Act.
       The amount provided for this appropriation includes the 
     following reductions from the budget request: a decrease of 
     $2,947,000 for civilian pay and a decrease of $5,000,000 for 
     the Headquarters Directorate. None of the reductions shall 
     come from small boat acquisitions. Should the President 
     provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the 
     cost of the pay raise will be absorbed within existing 
     appropriations for fiscal year 2013.
       The amount provided for this appropriation includes the 
     following increases above the budget request: an additional 
     $23,842,000 to reduce the backlog in critical depot level 
     maintenance; $1,977,000 to prevent the decommissioning of 
     three 110-foot patrol boats; $10,191,000 to reduce the 
     operational gap created by the disestablishment of the high-
     tempo high-maintenance program; $8,413,000 to maintain one of 
     the two High Endurance Cutters proposed for decommissioning; 
     $5,200,000 for seasonal air facilities; and $3,115,000 for 
     the annualization of marine environmental response positions.

                                                       ________________
                                                       
  Total, Operating Expenses..............................$7,074,782,000

                  Program Terminations and New Starts

       The Coast Guard is directed to brief the Committees prior 
     to starting the process of terminating programs that have 
     been specifically requested in the budget and funded by 
     Congress, such as the termination of the high tempo-high 
     maintenance program and the H-60 radar program. Further, the 
     Coast Guard is directed to comply with the general provisions 
     in Title V of this Act with respect to the creation of 
     programs not previously requested and justified or the 
     elimination of programs previously requested and justified to 
     Congress in the justification accompanying the President's 
     budget.

  Overseas Contingency Operations Funding and Global War on Terrorism

       Funding is included for OCO/GWOT within the Coast Guard 
     ``Operating Expenses'' appropriation instead of within 
     funding provided to the Department of Defense. There is 
     concern with the continued overreliance on OCO/GWOT funds to 
     support activities that have become part of the Coast Guard's 
     routine mission set. As activities overseas continue to draw 
     down, it is expected that there will be a similar decrease in 
     OCO/GWOT funding requested by the Administration for the 
     Coast Guard. The Coast Guard is directed to brief the 
     Committees no later than 30 days after the date of enactment 
     of this Act on any changes expected to funding for the OCO/
     GWOT during fiscal year 2013. Further, the Coast Guard is 
     directed to include in the classified annex for fiscal year 
     2014 details of its current and future support to Central 
     Command.

                              TWIC Readers

       The Coast Guard, the Department, and TSA are directed to 
     take all necessary action to expedite the completion and 
     publication of a final TWIC reader rule.

                        Seasonal Air Facilities

       The request to replace five H-65 helicopters in operation 
     at Air Station Traverse City with three H-60 helicopters and 
     to close two seasonal Air Facilities at Muskegon, Michigan 
     and Waukegan, Illinois is denied. There also is concern that 
     two of the H-60 aircraft proposed to be transferred to Air 
     Station Traverse City would be taken from Operation Bahamas, 
     Turks and Caicos, resulting in a significant loss of annual 
     hours dedicated to drug and migrant interdiction and search 
     and rescue in that area of responsibility.

                     Marine Environmental Response

       The Coast Guard is expected to keep the Committees apprised 
     of marine environmental response hiring efforts in fiscal 
     year 2013 to achieve 718 positions, including 26 positions 
     added in this Act, and to report to the Committees within 15 
     days if it deviates from this plan.

                      Support of Military Families

       The Coast Guard is directed to submit a copy of its 
     National Housing Assessment no later than 30 days after the 
     date of enactment of this Act. The report shall prioritize 
     short-term and long-term improvements needed, including 
     resource requirements.

         Infrastructure and Response Capabilities in the Arctic

       The Coast Guard is directed to report to the Committees 
     within 90 days after the date of enactment of this Act on the 
     actions taken to reach international agreements on ensuring 
     adequate maritime transportation infrastructure and response 
     capabilities in the Arctic.

                            Coast Guard Yard

       The Coast Guard Yard located at Curtis Bay, Maryland, is 
     recognized as a critical component of the Coast Guard's core 
     logistics capability that directly supports fleet readiness. 
     Sufficient industrial work should be assigned to the Yard to 
     sustain this capability.

                Sexual Harassment Reporting Requirements

       The Coast Guard is directed to provide to the Committees 
     the annual report required by Section 217 of the Coast Guard 
     Authorization Act of 2010.

                      Command and Control Aircraft

       The Coast Guard is directed to notify the Committees prior 
     to making any changes in the type or number of the command 
     and control aircraft.

                        Automation Modernization

       A new appropriation for Automation Modernization is not 
     included; however, the Coast Guard is directed to provide a 
     report to the Committees no later than 90 days after the date 
     of enactment of this Act detailing funding for fiscal year 
     2012, planned for fiscal year 2013, and requested for fiscal 
     year 2014 by program, project and activity for new 
     information technology investments and automation 
     modernization.

                           Chemical Security

       In House report 112-331, the Coast Guard and NPPD are 
     directed to complete a planned Memorandum of Understanding 
     (MOU) to harmonize chemical security responsibilities 
     established by the CFATS regulations and MTSA regulatory 
     programs no later than March 30, 2012, but the agreement has 
     not been finalized. The MOU is to be completed expeditiously.

          Funding for Minor Shore Infrastructure Improvements

       The bill continues to allow funds from the ``Operating 
     Expenses'' appropriation to be used for the sustainment, 
     repair, replacement and maintenance of shore infrastructure, 
     including projects to correct deficiencies for code 
     compliance or that threaten life, health, or safety to an 
     amount not exceeding 50 percent of a building's or 
     structure's replacement value. Additionally, ``Operating 
     Expenses'' funds are allowed to be used for contingent, 
     emergent, or other unspecified minor construction projects, 
     which includes new construction, procurement, development, 
     conversion, rebuilding, improvement, or an extension of any 
     facility not exceeding $1,000,000 in total costs at any 
     location for planned or unplanned operational needs.
       Minor construction projects funded from the ``Operating 
     Expenses'' appropriation can be combined with depot level 
     maintenance projects for the sake of administrative and 
     economic efficiency. Such projects and any sustainment, 
     repair, replacement or maintenance projects over $1,000,000 
     shall be detailed in a semiannual report to the Committees.


                ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE AND RESTORATION

       The bill provides a total of $13,151,000 for 
     ``Environmental Compliance and Restoration.'' The amount 
     provided for this appropriation includes a decrease of 
     $11,000 in civilian pay. Should the President provide a 
     civilian pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the cost of 
     the pay raise will be absorbed within existing appropriations 
     for fiscal year 2013.


                            RESERVE TRAINING

       The bill provides a total of $132,528,000 for ``Reserve 
     Training.'' The amount provided for this appropriation 
     includes a decrease of $26,000 in civilian pay. Should the 
     President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is 
     assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013.


              ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION, AND IMPROVEMENTS

       The bill provides a total of $1,545,393,000 for

     Quarterly Reports on Acquisition Projects and Mission Emphasis

       The Commandant is to continue to brief the Committees 
     quarterly on all major acquisitions consistent with the 
     direction in the joint explanatory statement accompanying 
     Public Law 112-74. In addition to the information normally 
     provided, these required briefings shall include: the top 
     five risks for each acquisition, if applicable, and if these 
     risks have future budget implications; the objective for 
     operational hours the Coast Guard expects to achieve; the gap 
     between that objective, current capabilities, and stated 
     mission requirements; and how the acquisition of the specific 
     asset closes the gap. The information presented at these 
     briefings shall also include a discussion of how the Coast 
     Guard calculated the operational hours, and an explanation on 
     risks to mission performance associated with any current 
     shortfall, and the operational strategy to mitigate such 
     risks. Finally, the briefings are to include a status chart 
     on all shore construction projects that have not been 
     completed, including the funding status, design status, and 
     procurement and construction status.

                      Revised Budget Justification

       The Coast Guard is directed to include a detailed budget 
     justification for each PPA for which funding is requested, or 
     funding is available from prior years. Further, as detailed 
     on page 86 in the House report, the budget justification for 
     aircraft and vessels in fiscal year 2014 shall include 
     detailed cost information consistent with the appropriate 
     work elements for the program, and standardized for similar 
     type systems such as aircraft and vessels.
       The budget justification for programs that are conversions 
     or sustainment shall provide similar data and include types 
     of modifications, quantity of kits, and planned installation 
     schedule of modification kits.
       The budget justification for Program Oversight and 
     Management, Systems Engineering and Integration and C4ISR 
     shall provide a breakout of funding by asset.
       In the budget justification, the Coast Guard is directed to 
     provide procurement history and planning for the prior year, 
     current year, and budget year to include quantity and unit 
     cost, contracting office location, contractor, contract 
     method/type, award date, date of first delivery, and the 
     availability of technical data package.
       Additionally, to address continued deficiencies in the 
     budget justification for Program Oversight and Management, 
     the Coast Guard is directed to provide a detailed subdivision 
     of funding requested for government program management in its 
     justification materials accompanying the fiscal year 2014 
     budget submission. This includes providing funding associated 
     with each subdivision.

                              Full Funding

       Bill language is included that directs the funds provided 
     in this Act be immediately available and allotted to contract 
     for the production of the sixth National Security Cutter 
     (NSC) notwithstanding the availability of post-delivery 
     activity funding and long lead time materials, components, 
     and designs of the seventh NSC notwithstanding the 
     availability of production funds for the seventh NSC.
       Further, a new general provision in Title V of this Act 
     sets requirements related to funding availability and 
     contract awards for long lead materials and production of 
     Coast Guard cutters. In addition, the Secretary shall develop 
     fiscal policy that prescribes Coast Guard budgetary policies, 
     procedures and technical direction necessary to comply with 
     statutory language in the general provision and consistent 
     with the DoD Financial Management Regulations (Volume 2A 
     Chapter 1, C. Procedures for Full Funding) directing the 
     funding and allocation of funds for production contracts and 
     long lead time material contracts. This policy shall include 
     that (1) the costs of outfitting and post-delivery activities 
     and spare or repair parts shall be requested not earlier than 
     for the first fiscal year in which it is necessary to incur 
     such costs to maintain a planned production schedule, which 
     may be subsequent to the fiscal year for which production 
     costs are requested; and (2) the costs of long lead time 
     items shall be requested for the fiscal year in which it is 
     necessary to incur such costs to maintain a planned 
     production schedule, which may be in advance of the fiscal 
     year for which production costs are requested.

                               Carry Over

       The Coast Guard is directed, to the maximum extent 
     possible, to budget for programs, assets, modifications, and 
     installations that it will execute in the budget request year 
     so as not to accumulate excessive carryover.

                        National Security Cutter

       A total of $679,300,000 is provided for the National 
     Security Cutter (NSC) program. Of this amount, $557,000,000, 
     as requested, is for the production of NSC-6 and $77,000,000 
     is to acquire long lead time materials for the production of 
     NSC-7.

                          Fast Response Cutter

       A total of $335,000,000 is provided for the acquisition of 
     six Fast Response Cutters (FRCs) instead of two FRCs, as 
     requested. This funding will allow the Coast Guard to acquire 
     FRC hulls (19-24). Procuring six Fast Response Cutters in 
     fiscal year 2013 will maximize the production line and 
     generate cost savings of $5,000,000 per hull for a total 
     savings to the taxpayers of $30,000,000.

                         Offshore Patrol Cutter

       A total of $30,000,000 is provided for the Offshore Patrol 
     Cutter (OPC). The Coast Guard is directed to update the 
     Committees on changes or updates in the Operation 
     Requirements Documents.

                  Medium Endurance Cutter Sustainment

       A total of $16,000,000 is provided for the Medium Endurance 
     Cutter (WMEC) Sustainment, to include $3,000,000 above the 
     amount requested to be used to conduct a WMEC condition 
     survey to address potential service life extension 
     requirements, as described in the House report.

                            Polar Icebreaker

       As requested, $8,000,000 is provided to initiate survey and 
     design activities for a new Coast Guard polar icebreaker. The 
     Coast Guard is directed to provide the Committees with its 
     Mission Needs Statement no later than 30 days after it 
     receives Departmental approval and to brief the Committees on 
     its timeline for completing a concept of operations, market 
     research, specification development, and other acquisition 
     milestones leading to a request for proposal and contract 
     award.

                          Response Boat-Medium

       A total of $8,000,000 is provided for the Response Boat-
     Medium (RB-M) acquisition.
       These funds will allow the Coast Guard to purchase 4 RB-Ms 
     in fiscal year 2013, bringing the total funded for the Coast 
     Guard to 170 boats.

                            H-60 Helicopter

       A total of $14,000,000 is provided for aircraft replacement 
     of one H-60 helicopter, an increase of $14,000,000 above the 
     amount requested.

                            HC-130J Aircraft

      A total of $90,000,000 is provided for one HC-130J aircraft.

                        Maritime Patrol Aircraft

       A total of $55,000,000 is provided for the Maritime Patrol 
     Aircraft (MPA), $12,000,000 above the amount requested. This 
     fully funds one MPA, including funding to acquire a Mission 
     System Pallet and spares, which were not included in the 
     fiscal year 2013 request.

                       Unmanned Aircraft Systems

       As described in the Senate report, the Coast Guard is 
     directed to keep the Committees informed of its efforts to 
     pursue a small Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) as an interim 
     capability for the NSC and to keep the Committees apprised of 
     its efforts for both cutter-based and land-based UAS 
     development.

                    Program Oversight and Management

       A total of $15,000,000 is provided for Program Oversight 
     and Management.

                  Systems Engineering and Integration

       All funding for Systems Engineering and Integration is 
     denied, a reduction of $2,500,000 from the amount requested, 
     because of high carryover from prior appropriations.

 Major Shore Construction, Housing, Aids to Navigation, and Survey and 
                                 Design

       A total of $30,000,000 is provided for Major Shore 
     Construction, Housing, Aids to Navigation, and Survey and 
     Design. The Coast Guard is directed to submit an expenditure 
     plan for these funds to the Committees no later than 30 days 
     after the date of enactment of this Act, including a 
     prioritized list of all backlogged projects and the Coast 
     Guard's plan to address them. In addition, the Coast Guard is 
     directed to include a detailed description of any changes 
     from the fiscal year 2013 budget justification for major 
     acquisition systems infrastructure.

[[Page S1556]]

                      Coast Guard Military Housing

       A total of $10,000,000 is provided for the 
     recapitalization, improvement, and acquisition of housing to 
     support military families. Of this amount, $6,828,691 is 
     derived from the Coast Guard Housing Fund. The Coast Guard 
     shall provide an expenditure plan to the Committees for these 
     funds in the shore facilities report required to be submitted 
     no later than 45 days after the date of enactment of this 
     Act.

                         Acquisition Personnel

       A total of $113,682,000 is provided for direct costs of 
     acquisition personnel. The amount provided includes a 
     decrease of $216,000 in civilian pay and a decrease of 
     $3,500,000 for efficiencies. Should the President provide a 
     civilian pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the cost of 
     the pay raise will be absorbed within existing appropriations 
     for fiscal year 2013.

                           Fleet Requirements

       The Secretary and the Commandant are directed to comply 
     with Senate language with respect to developing a working 
     group to examine available studies on Coast Guard fleet 
     requirements.

                          Unfunded Priorities

       The Commandant is directed to provide to the Committees, at 
     the time of the President's budget submission, a list of 
     approved but unfunded Coast Guard priorities and the funds 
     needed for each.


              RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST, AND EVALUATION

       The bill provides a total of $19,690,000 for ``Research, 
     Development, Test, and Evaluation''. The amount provided for 
     this appropriation includes a decrease of $38,000 in civilian 
     pay. Should the President provide a civilian pay raise for 
     2013, it is assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be 
     absorbed within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013.
       The Commandant is directed to provide a detailed 
     prioritized listing of planned activities relative to stated 
     mission requirements in the justification materials 
     accompanying the fiscal year 2014 budget submission. Further, 
     the Commandant is directed to comply with the Senate 
     direction to study the viability and applicability of 
     persistent unmanned maritime vehicles and other cost-saving 
     maritime technologies through a competitive process.


                              RETIRED PAY

       The bill provides a total of $1,423,000,000 for ``Retired 
     Pay''. The Coast Guard's ``Retired Pay'' appropriation is a 
     mandatory budget activity.

                      United States Secret Service


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       The bill provides $1,555,913,000 for ``Salaries and 
     Expenses'', of which not to exceed $19,125 shall be for 
     official reception and representation expenses. The amount 
     provided under this heading does not include $4,058,000, as 
     requested, for a civilian pay raise. Should the President 
     provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the 
     cost of the pay raise will be absorbed within existing 
     appropriations for fiscal year 2013.
       The amount provided for this appropriation by PPA is as 
     follows:
Protection:
    Protection of persons and facilities...................$855,236,000
    Protective intelligence activities.......................68,125,000

      Total, Salaries and Expenses.......................$1,555,913,000

                Salaries and Expenses Account Structure

       The current account structure for Programs, Projects, and 
     Activities (PPAs) is retained, with the following 
     consolidations requested in the budget: White House mail 
     screening now is funded within the Protection of Persons and 
     Facilities PPA, and the Electronic Crimes Special Agent 
     Program (ECSAP) and Electronic Crimes Task Forces are now 
     funded within Domestic Field Operations.
       The Committees do not agree with the proposal to reduce the 
     number of PPAs to five, with single PPAs for pay and 
     benefits, protection, and investigations as requested in the 
     budget. The Secret Service has stated that because current 
     PPA structure spreads pay and expenses across many programs, 
     it is constantly challenged by having to balance shifting 
     demands between protection and investigations, and as a 
     result, must either submit formal reprogramming, or employ 
     inefficient and conservative financial management to avoid 
     them. The Committees understand this argument, particularly 
     as it applies to the Secret Service field office 
     organization, where the same agents may be involved in both 
     protective operations and a variety of investigations 
     efforts. While the bill maintains the current PPA structure 
     some flexibility has been provided in statute to the Secret 
     Service to reprogram $15,000,000 or 10 percent, whichever is 
     lower, between the Protection of Persons and Facilities PPA 
     and the Domestic Field Operations PPA.
       The Secret Service is developing a financial reporting 
     system that it asserts will enable it to report enterprise-
     wide labor costs on a timelier basis and the Secret Service 
     is invited to provide such evidence to the Committees for 
     consideration during the 2014 appropriations process.

                        International Operations

       The tempo of international investigative operations has 
     increased for the Secret Service, with notable successes in 
     investigating and halting counterfeiting and other forms of 
     electronic and financial crime through its overseas field 
     operations, including its new locations in Beijing, China and 
     Lima, Peru. The Secret Service is directed to brief the 
     Committees not later than April 3, 2013, on the status of its 
     overseas investigative operations, including staffing and 
     funding for its field offices.

     Domestic Field Operations and Electronic Crimes Investigations

       The partial consolidation provided in the bill includes 
     incorporation of the previously separate PPA for Electronic 
     Crimes Special Agent Program (ECSAP) and Electronic Crimes 
     Task Forces (ECTF) into the Domestic Field Operations PPA. 
     This consolidation does not reflect any dissatisfaction with 
     the ECSAP or ECTF programs; on the contrary, those activities 
     have proven highly productive and deserve strong support. 
     Therefore, the bill includes an increase of $3,500,000 within 
     the PPA to be distributed between the ECSAP/ECTF programs and 
     other high priority domestic investigative efforts. While 
     ECSAP/ECTF will no longer have a separate reporting and 
     reprogramming line, the Committees expect: (1) to receive 
     periodic briefings on the status of investigations; (2) to 
     see the funding and programmatic efforts sustained; and (3) 
     the funding and personnel resources for them continue to be 
     identified in future budgets.
       In addition, as a step to aligning the program and funding 
     for electronic crimes investigation support, the bill 
     includes $4,000,000 within the Domestic Field Operations PPA 
     for grant assistance for electronic crime investigation and 
     forensic training for State and local law enforcement 
     agencies, which the Secret Service has been providing to date 
     at the National Computer Forensics Institute, previously 
     funded through the National Protection and Programs 
     Directorate (NPPD). The Secret Service is directed to 
     coordinate with NPPD as the subject matter experts to ensure 
     the curriculum is sound and consistent with current risk and 
     threat, and to avoid duplication and ensure efficiency.

               Support for Missing and Exploited Children

       The bill provides $8,366,000 to fund grant assistance and 
     investigative support for investigations related to missing 
     and exploited children as proposed by the House.

              Professionalism Reinforcement Working Group

       The Secret Service is directed to provide quarterly 
     briefings to the Committees on the status of the 
     Professionalism Reinforcement Working Group and its review of 
     Secret Service professional standards of conduct, and their 
     relationship to training, policy and procedures.

                    National Special Security Events

       The bill provides $4,500,000, as requested, to defray costs 
     specific to Secret Service execution of its statutory 
     responsibilities to direct the planning and coordination of 
     National Special Security Events (NSSEs). Some federal 
     agencies have sought reimbursement from the Secret Service 
     for participation in and support of prior NSSEs, despite the 
     fact the Secret Service, as a matter of policy and practice, 
     has sought and accepted such support only on the explicit 
     understanding that such support is provided on a voluntary 
     and non-reimbursable basis. Further, when other agencies and 
     departments elect to participate in NSSEs, they are 
     fulfilling their responsibilities set forth in Homeland 
     Security Presidential Directive 15 and National Security 
     Presidential Directive 46, and their authority to fund such 
     participation derives from those Directives. Based on this 
     understanding, and to clarify the expectation that 
     participating agencies should budget for and fund their own 
     costs, a new general provision is included in the Act that 
     provides that none of the funds in this Act may be used to 
     reimburse any Federal department or agency for its 
     participation in a National Special Security Event.
       To resolve ongoing disputes over prior funding 
     responsibilities, determine whether any agency participation 
     in past NSSEs should be eligible for reimbursement, and 
     dispel ambiguity about how participating agencies will be 
     funded for future NSSEs, the Administration must either 
     propose a change in current law or issue clear administrative 
     guidance.

[[Page S1557]]

       The Department and the Office of Management and Budget are 
     directed to jointly resolve this issue, address the 
     appropriate assignment of budgeting and funding 
     responsibilities for the costs of agency participation in 
     NSSEs, and submit a specific plan to accomplish this, 
     including proposed statutory remedies if necessary, not later 
     than April 3, 2013.
       In addition, the USSS is directed to provide periodic 
     updates on NSSEs planned for fiscal year 2013 prior to and 
     following the event, instead of quarterly briefings as 
     proposed by the Senate.

                         Technology Activities

       The bill includes $1,133,000 for information integration 
     and technology transformation activities of the Secret 
     Service, and direct the Secret Service to provide greater 
     detail in its annual budget justification accompanying the 
     fiscal year 2014 budget request on all USSS information 
     technology activities, to include the multi-year investment 
     plan called for in statutory language for the acquisition 
     account.


     ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION, IMPROVEMENTS, AND RELATED EXPENSES

       The bill provides a total of $56,750,000 for ``Acquisition, 
     Construction, Improvements, and Related Expenses.'' This 
     funding covers the acquisition, construction, improvements 
     and related expenses for the Rowley Training Center and 
     investments in Information Integration and Technology 
     Transformation (IITT) programs. Bill language is included 
     requiring the Director to submit a multi-year IITT investment 
     plan along with the budget request for fiscal year 2014, as 
     proposed by the House.

     provided under this heading does not include $101,000, as 
     requested, for a civilian pay raise. Should the President

     amount provided under this heading does not include $590,000, 
     as requested, for a civilian pay raise. Should the President

     Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program, of which $20,000,000 is 
     not available for obligation until the Under Secretary for 
     NPPD submits to the Committees an expenditure plan for the 
     CFATS program for fiscal year 2013, including the number of 
     facilities covered, inspectors on-board, inspections pending, 
     and inspections projected to be completed by September 30, 
     2013. NPPD is directed to brief the Committees on the 
     findings of recent GAO testimony summarizing the DHS actions 
     to better manage its chemical security program (GAO-12-
     1044T), including progress in addressing the recommendations 
     and in implementing the action plan.
       In lieu of language in House report 112-492, directing a 
     review by NPPD, in conjunction with the Coast Guard, GAO is 
     directed to continue its ongoing effort to examine the extent 
     to which DHS has made progress and encountered challenges in 
     developing a viable CFATS program. Once the CFATS program 
     begins performing and completing a sufficient number of 
     compliance inspections, GAO shall review how compliance 
     inspections are performed, whether inspectors are properly 
     trained and have the right skill sets to perform compliance 
     inspections and if the CFATS program faces any barriers or 
     challenges in managing the compliance inspection process. GAO 
     shall complete this review in consultation with the 
     Committees.
       NPPD is not required to provide the report on the CFATS 
     action plan as required in Senate report 112-169, since the 
     information has been provided. NPPD is directed to provide a 
     report regarding CFATS semiannual data as required in Senate 
     report 112-169, and a briefing, instead of a report, 
     regarding alternative security programs as required in the 
     House report 112-492. NPPD is expected to continue to 
     increase its on-board FTEs to reach the fiscal year 2013 
     requested level, to include the hiring of the appropriate 
     level of inspectors to meet mission requirements, and is 
     directed to include in the aforementioned report, with 
     semiannual data, any variation to the level of inspectors 
     requested with a justification for the change. NPPD is 
     directed to brief the Committees regularly on the status of 
     any proposed personnel surety information collection requests 
     and include in the briefings how addressing industry concerns 
     with respect to notifying industry of denials are being 
     addressed.
       NPPD is directed to brief the Committees on the progress 
     toward implementing the recommendations included in the 
     recent GAO report entitled ``DHS Could Better Manage Security 
     Surveys and Vulnerability Assessments'' (GAO-12-378).
       Within the total amount provided, $202,000,000 shall be 
     used to deploy technology to improve the information security 
     on Federal computer systems in accordance with a new general 
     provision contained in Title V of this Act. The Under 
     Secretary is directed to provide an expenditure plan, in the 
     same format as the plan submitted to fulfill the requirement 
     in section 137 (b) of Public Law 112-175, for the entire 
     fiscal year 2013 amount.
       Within the total amount provided, $329,009,000 is for 
     Network Security Deployment, which fully funds the amount 
     that will be obligated in fiscal year 2013 for the Einstein 
     program and related activities.
       Within the total amount provided, $24,499,000 is provided 
     for Next Generation Networks to prevent delays in deploying 
     priority communications services capability.
       The Under Secretary is directed to provide a report 
     detailing all fiscal year 2013 NPPD grant programs including 
     the justification, strategy, and future funding requirements 
     for the grants, as well as the determinations and findings to 
     justify sole source awards.


                       FEDERAL PROTECTIVE SERVICE

       A total of $1,301,824,000 is provided for the ``Federal 
     Protective Service'' (FPS), as requested, for fiscal year 
     2013. This amount is fully offset by collections of security 
     fees. A provision is included requiring the Secretary and the 
     Director of the OMB to certify, no later than May 1, 2013, 
     that FPS will collect a sufficient amount in fees to cover 
     the total number of FTE requested in the budget, or adjust 
     the fee to cover all costs.
       The NPPD Office of Chief Financial Officer is directed to 
     brief the Committees on the entire year expenditure plan for 
     funds provided in this Act not later than 45 days after the 
     date of enactment of this Act.
       FPS is directed to brief the Committees on progress in 
     implementing the recommendations made in a recent GAO report, 
     ``DHS Needs to Refocus Its Efforts to Lead the Government 
     Facilities Sector'' (GAO-12-852), not later than 45 days 
     after the date of enactment of this Act, including a specific 
     timeframe for publishing an action plan.


                OFFICE OF BIOMETRIC IDENTITY MANAGEMENT

       A total of $232,422,000 is provided for the ``Office of 
     Biometric Identity Management.''

[[Page S1558]]

     This level includes: $40,546,000 for Salaries and Expenses 
     (S&E); $15,980,000 for Systems Engineering; $155,840,000 for 
     Operations and Maintenance (O&M), to include $65,500,000 for 
     IDENT; and $20,056,000 for Identity Management and Screening 
     Services. Funding is not provided for the Office of Biometric 
     Identity Management (OBIM) to continue US--VISIT's staff 
     rotations to international partner agencies. As provided in 
     bill language, the S&E and half of the O&M funds have an 
     availability of one year. The bill provides $19,917,000 to 
     ICE in order to fully fund overstay analysis previously 
     performed by US--VISIT, to include the Data Integrity Group. 
     The bill also provides $12,284,000 to CBP related to entry-
     exit policy and operations. Statutory language is included 
     ensuring that the appropriate successor account is charged 
     for amounts obligated under US-VISIT. Further, the amount 
     provided under this heading does not include funds requested 
     for a civilian pay raise. Should the President provide a 
     civilian pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the cost of 
     the pay raise will be absorbed within existing appropriations 
     for fiscal year 2013.
       As outlined in the House report, OBIM is the lead entity 
     within DHS responsible for biometric identity management 
     services through its management of the Automated Biometric 
     Identification System, or IDENT. OBIM assumes the most 
     significant and cross-cutting responsibility from what was 
     known as US-VISIT--namely to serve customers across DHS, at 
     other Federal agencies, in State and local law enforcement, 
     and overseas through storage of biometric identities, 
     recurrent matching against derogatory information, and other 
     biometric expertise and services. OBIM is expected to 
     reconstitute what is now known as the US-VISIT Executive 
     Stakeholder Board to ensure strong coordination with DHS and 
     interagency partners.
       OBIM is encouraged to identify efficiencies under this new 
     structure through reassessing its staffing, travel, and 
     contractor support requirements.

                       Operations and Maintenance

       OBIM retains budget and responsibility for the Arrival 
     Departure Information System (ADIS) as well as IDENT. OBIM is 
     directed to undertake a rigorous review of its Information 
     Technology costs, as well as IDENT and ADIS modernization 
     needs, and develop proposals for efficiencies and cost 
     savings, including considering managed service options with 
     the CBP Office of Information Technology and examining 
     contractor services. OBIM is encouraged to apply efficiencies 
     and cost savings to continue the Unique Identity program and 
     modernize IDENT. All modernization activities should be 
     outlined in OBIM's investment and management plan.
       As directed in the House report, OBIM shall continue its 
     data sharing and connectivity improvement efforts with the 
     Intelligence Community. OBIM also is directed to brief the 
     Committees on a semiannual basis on its workload and service 
     levels, staffing, modernization efforts, and other 
     operations.

                            Unique Identity

       OBIM and its counterparts at the Justice, State, and 
     Defense Departments as well as its stakeholders within DHS 
     are directed to continue providing semiannual briefings on 
     the progress in implementing system interoperability, as 
     required by the House and Senate reports.

                                  Exit

       CBP is the DHS lead for entry-exit policy and operations. 
     Responsibility for implementing a biometric exit program lies 
     with CBP. As a transitional matter, OBIM is directed to 
     ensure that the entry data exchange program with Canada, as 
     referenced in the Senate report, is fully funded in fiscal 
     year 2013. Within 120 days after the date of enactment of 
     this Act, CBP, in conjunction with OBIM and any other 
     appropriate partners, such as the Science and Technology 
     Directorate, shall report to the Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations, the Judiciary, and Homeland Security and 
     Governmental Affairs and the House Committees on 
     Appropriations, the Judiciary, and Homeland Security on the 
     Department's tangible progress in implementing an enhanced 
     biographic exit system and biometric exit planning. The 
     report shall include the results of the Canadian pilot 
     programs and provide an update on the Mexican pilot program. 
     The Committees on Appropriations shall be briefed 
     semiannually on exit thereafter.

                        Office of Health Affairs

       A total of $132,499,000 is provided for the ``Office of 
     Health Affairs'' (OHA). The amount provided under this 
     heading does not include $55,000, as requested, for a 
     civilian pay raise. Should the President provide a civilian 
     pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the cost of the pay 
     raise will be absorbed within existing appropriations for 
     fiscal year 2013.
       Of the total amount provided, $2,000,000 is for the 
     Chemical Defense Program, $1,500,000 above the request for 
     two additional demonstration projects, to be awarded through 
     a competitive process; $13,000,000 is for the National Bio-
     Surveillance Integration System, $5,000,000 above the request 
     to sustain existing activities and support new pilots, to be 
     awarded through a competitive process; and $5,407,000 is for 
     Planning and Coordination, $500,000 above the request to 
     support programs that address the wellness and resiliency of 
     the DHS workforce and the needs of the Food, Agriculture, and 
     Veterinary Defense Division.
       Of the total amount provided, $26,702,000 is for salaries 
     and expenses. The decrease below the request is due to 
     continued under execution of on-board FTE and lapsed 
     balances.
       Of the total amount provided, $85,390,000 is for BioWatch, 
     $39,900,000 below the request which was intended for BioWatch 
     Generation 3 testing and evaluation. The Committees have 
     consistently demonstrated strong support for the development 
     of an early warning network to detect biological agents to 
     speed response and recovery from a terrorist attack. While 
     the Committees support OHA's ongoing efforts to improve the 
     Nation's biological detection capabilities, serious concerns 
     have been raised about the Biowatch Generation 3 program, to 
     include scientific validity and delays in execution that have 
     created large carryover balances. The Department is 
     encouraged to continue with Phase II, Stage I activities, as 
     currently planned with available carryover funding, to ensure 
     candidate systems meet entry criteria through performance 
     testing. However, prior to entering Phase II, Stage 2 that 
     includes down-selection for a single solution and entering 
     operational testing and evaluation, the Secretary shall 
     certify to the Committees that the science used to develop 
     the technology is proven and warrants operational testing and 
     evaluation.
       The OHA Chief Financial Officer is directed to brief the 
     Committees on the entire year expenditure plan for funds 
     provided in this Act not later than 45 days after the date of 
     enactment of this Act.

                  Federal Emergency Management Agency


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       A total of $973,118,000 is provided for ``Salaries and 
     Expenses.'' The following programs are funded, within the 
     total, at last year's levels as listed in Senate report 112-
     169: the National Hurricane Program, the National Earthquake 
     Hazards Reduction Program and the National Dam Safety 
     Program. Of the amounts provided, no less than $35,180,000 is 
     for the Urban Search and Rescue Response System and 
     $2,000,000 is for the Emergency Management Assistance 
     Compact. An additional $5,000,000 for automation 
     modernization and $5,000,000 for national training center 
     infrastructure improvements is provided. The amount provided 
     under this heading does not include funds, as requested, for 
     a civilian pay raise. Should the President provide a civilian 
     pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the cost of the pay 
     raise will be absorbed within existing appropriations for 
     fiscal year 2013.
       Of the total amount provided, $4,293,000 is included for 
     the Office of National Capital Region Coordination (ONCRC), 
     which is a reduction of $806,000 below the request. ONCRC is 
     directed to work expeditiously on its highest priority 
     activities in fiscal year 2013.
       The grant management and administration costs associated 
     with ''State and Local Programs'', ''Firefighters Assistance 
     Grants'', and ''Emergency Management Performance Grants'' are 
     fully funded within the ''Salaries and Expenses'' 
     appropriation instead of through transfers as has been done 
     in previous years.
       The amount provided for this appropriation by PPA is as 
     follows:

Administrative and regional offices........................$257,409,000
  Office of National Capital Region Coordination............(4,293,000)
Preparedness and protection.................................179,047,000

  Total, Salaries and Expenses.............................$973,118,000

       A provision is continued and made permanent a provision 
     directing the inclusion of West Virginia and Pennsylvania to 
     be incorporated into efforts to integrate the activities of 
     Federal, State, and local government in the National Capital 
     Region.
       FEMA is directed to brief the Committees on an expenditure 
     plan, within 90 days of the date of enactment of this Act, 
     detailed by PPA and by office, which shall include: funding 
     levels for the prior year, the current year, and deviations 
     between the two years. The number of positions, the number of 
     FTE, the amount for salaries and benefits and the amount for 
     the program showing all sources of funding, to include 
     transfers from other appropriations, shall also be included. 
     FEMA shall include fiscal year 2014 budget detail for each 
     FEMA office and region by: object classification, FTEs on-
     board, FTE vacancies, and the appropriation accounts used to 
     support the office and its programs. Further, FEMA is 
     directed to present the fiscal year 2014 budget in the same 
     account and PPA structure as provided in this Act and 
     statement. Should FEMA determine that changes to the funding 
     structure facilitate better resource management and 
     transparency in spending, changes shall be presented in an 
     addendum to the Congressional Justification with a clear 
     justification.
       FEMA is directed to maintain the Children's Coordinator 
     position within the Office of the Administrator and sustain 
     the on-

     this Act and for fiscal years 2013 through 2018 no later than 
     May 1, 2013.
       A new appropriation for ``Automation Modernization'' is not 
     included. Instead, $5,000,000 above the request is provided 
     for automation modernization within ``Salaries and 
     Expenses.'' This amount is to continue the effort begun by 
     the Committees in fiscal year 2012 to update FEMA's 
     technological capabilities in order to better meet its 
     mission. No funds were identified in the fiscal year 2013 
     budget request for this effort; however, should there be 
     funds intended for this purpose, the $5,000,000 provided is 
     in addition to that amount. FEMA is directed to provide a 
     report 90 days after the date of enactment of this Act 
     detailing funding for fiscal year 2012, planned for fiscal 
     year 2013, and requested for fiscal year 2014 by program, 
     project, and activity for new information technology 
     investments and automation modernization. FEMA is directed to 
     work with the Committees in developing the presentation of 
     this information.


                        STATE AND LOCAL PROGRAMS

  Subtotal, Education, Training, and Exercises..............235,174,000
                                                       ________________
                                                       
Total, State and Local Programs..........................$1,466,082,000

       The National Preparedness Grant Program, as proposed in the 
     budget request is rejected due to a lack of justification, 
     and a new general provision is included in Title V of this 
     Act that prohibits the obligation of funds for such program 
     or any successor program unless explicitly authorized by 
     Congress. Instead, the bill provides no less than the amounts 
     distributed in fiscal year 2012 for the State Homeland 
     Security Grant Program, Operation Stonegarden, the Urban Area 
     Security Initiative, Nonprofit Security Grants, Public 
     Transportation Security Assistance and Railroad Security 
     Assistance Grants to include grants to Amtrak security, and 
     Port Security Grants. Within the total amount provided, 
     $188,932,000 is to be allocated by the Secretary according to 
     threat, vulnerability, and consequence to assist in 
     preventing, preparing for, protecting against, and responding 
     to acts of terrorism.
       Several provisions are included related to grant 
     administration. Grant guidance shall be issued within 60 days 
     after the date of enactment of this Act, applicants shall 
     apply within 80 days of receiving guidance, and award 
     decisions shall be made within 65 days of the receipt of 
     applications. Grantees may not use more than 5 percent of a 
     grant for grant administration and shall provide reports on 
     the use of funds as determined necessary by the Secretary. 
     The installation of communications towers is not considered 
     construction under State Homeland Security Grants and the 
     Urban Area Security Initiative.
       A provision is included and made permanent allowing the 
     Center for Domestic Preparedness to train, and be reimbursed 
     for such training, certain emergency personnel provided it 
     does not interfere with the primary mission to train state 
     and local emergency response providers.
       The Secretary and the Administrator are directed to refine 
     the grant reform proposal and include enough detail for the 
     appropriate committees of jurisdiction, potential grantees, 
     and the general public to understand how such reform will 
     further the safety and security of the Nation and its 
     citizens.
       The Committees believe that the UASI program should be 
     further focused on the areas under the greatest threat and at 
     the greatest risk, providing funding to a maximum of 25 
     regions. FEMA is directed to clearly identify the specific 
     criteria that will be used to determine the risk to urban 
     areas in a briefing to the Committees prior to grant guidance 
     being issued, and to justify the reason for final 
     determinations in a clear and transparent manner to the 
     Committees five days prior to the announcement of awards, in 
     accordance with a general provision in Title V of this Act.
       Within the total amount provided, $27,000,000 is for 
     Continuing Training Grants, of which no less than $3,000,000 
     may be awarded through a competitive process to provide and 
     deliver FEMA-certified training to rural first responders.
       FEMA is directed to brief the Committees on its progress 
     toward resolving the recommendations of the June 2012 OIG 
     report, ``Requirements for Reporting Homeland Security Grant 
     Program Achievements'' (OIG-12-92), not later than 45 days 
     after the date of enactment of this Act.
       The Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program 
     Progress Report, required by the joint explanatory statement 
     accompanying Public Law 112-74, which was received on August 
     14, 2012, details the challenges regional catastrophic 
     planning presents and the results of the grant program in 
     overcoming those challenges. The comprehensive report 
     completed by grant recipients, which was included as part of 
     the FEMA report, in particular highlights specific progress. 
     FEMA is directed to continue its technical assistance to 
     areas at greatest risk of a catastrophic event and to promote 
     regional planning for on-going and emerging needs.


                     FIREFIGHTER ASSISTANCE GRANTS

       A total of $675,000,000 is provided for ``Firefighter 
     Assistance Grants'' including $337,500,000 for firefighter 
     assistance grants and $337,500,000 for firefighter staffing 
     grants. In lieu of providing a report as directed in House 
     report 112-492, FEMA is directed to brief the Committees 
     semiannually on efforts to hire veterans.


                EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PERFORMANCE GRANTS

       A total of $350,000,000 is provided for ``Emergency 
     Management Performance Grants.''


              RADIOLOGICAL EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PROGRAM

       Statutory language is included providing for the receipt 
     and expenditure of fees collected, as authorized by P.L. 105-
     276.


                   UNITED STATES FIRE ADMINISTRATION

       A total of $44,000,000 is provided for the ``United States 
     Fire Administration.'' The amount provided does not include 
     funds, as requested, for a civilian pay raise. Should the 
     President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is 
     assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013.
       In 2050, the number of elderly in America is projected to 
     be 88.5 million, more than double the 40.2 million in 2010. 
     This shift in our demographics will have a dramatic impact on 
     services provided by the fire service and emergency medical 
     personnel. The FEMA Administrator, in consultation with the 
     USFA Administrator, is directed to submit to the Committees 
     no later than May 1, 2013, a report describing the need for 
     educational outreach to the elderly on prevention, improved 
     training and equipment for fire service and emergency medical 
     personnel on how to assist the elderly, and where 
     appropriate, model laws, regulations, or guidelines to 
     prevent injury or loss of life.


                          DISASTER RELIEF FUND

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

       A total of $7,007,926,000 is provided for the ``Disaster 
     Relief Fund,'' of which $6,400,000,000 is designated as being 
     for disaster relief for major disasters pursuant to 
     251(b)(2)(D) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
     Control Act of 1985. This level of funding is an increase of 
     $919,000,000 above the President's request, due to the impact 
     of Hurricane Sandy which made landfall on October 29, 2012, 
     and other designated disasters. A provision is included 
     transferring $24,000,000 to the OIG for audits and 
     investigations related to all disasters. Several provisions 
     directing FEMA to submit reports are included.


             FLOOD HAZARD MAPPING AND RISK ANALYSIS PROGRAM

       A total of $95,329,000 is provided for ``Flood Hazard 
     Mapping and Risk Analysis Program.'' The amount provided does 
     not include funds, as requested, for a civilian pay raise. 
     Should the President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, 
     it is assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013.


                     NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE FUND

       A total of $22,000,000 is provided for salaries and 
     expenses and $149,000,000 for flood plain management and 
     mapping. The Committees note that eliminating severe 
     repetitive loss properties results in the greatest savings to 
     the National Flood Insurance Fund, and FEMA is encouraged to 
     continue to prioritize reducing the number of such 
     properties. FEMA is directed to report to the relevant 
     committees of jurisdiction as required by Senate report 112-
     169 and including the House Committee on Financial Services, 
     on efforts to improve levee analysis and mapping procedures.


                  NATIONAL PREDISASTER MITIGATION FUND

       A total of $25,000,000 is provided for ``National 
     Predisaster Mitigation Fund.''


                       EMERGENCY FOOD AND SHELTER

       A total of $120,000,000 is provided for the ``Emergency 
     Food and Shelter'' program.

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

           United States Citizenship and Immigration Services

       A total of $111,924,000 is provided in discretionary 
     appropriations for USCIS for E-

[[Page S1560]]

     Verify. The amount provided under this heading does not 
     include funds requested for a civilian pay raise. Should the 
     President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is 
     assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing funds for fiscal year 2013.

                        Military Naturalizations

       The cost of military naturalizations is to be paid for by 
     the Department of Defense through the execution of an annual 
     Inter-Agency Agreement (IAA) for reimbursement. Therefore, no 
     USCIS funds are provided for military naturalizations, and 
     USCIS is directed to ensure that IAAs are executed in a 
     timely manner each year.

              Electronic Access to Immigration Information

       USCIS shall work with ICE and EOIR to maximize the sharing 
     of digital records and ultimately minimize the cost of 
     shipping and managing cumbersome paper files. Funds are 
     specified to support efforts to that end in ICE Automation 
     Modernization; USCIS is encouraged to participate in and 
     support these efforts as well. USCIS is also directed to 
     provide no less than $29,000,000 to continue conversion of 
     immigration records to digital format.

                            Electronic I-94

       As required by the House report, USCIS and CBP are directed 
     to brief the Committees quarterly on their progress toward 
     elimination of the paper I-94. Before the Department 
     implements interim changes, extensive outreach should be 
     undertaken to ensure that those affected understand the 
     interim process of obtaining the valid I-94 number.

                                E-Verify

       The Director of USCIS is expected to submit a report to the 
     Committees identifying the costs of expanding the use of E-
     Verify no later than 90 days after the date of enactment of 
     this Act, as required by the Senate report.

                           Stateless Persons

       As directed by the House report, USCIS, with other DHS 
     components as appropriate, shall brief the Committees on its 
     efforts to quantify the number of stateless persons in the 
     country.

                      Immigrant Integration Grants

       A general provision in Title V of this Act is included 
     providing $2,500,000 in appropriated funds and $7,500,000 
     from fee revenue for immigrant integration grants. None of 
     the appropriated funds may be used to administer the program.

                Federal Law Enforcement Training Center


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

       A total of $228,467,000 is provided for ``Salaries and 
     Expenses.'' Within the funds provided, $29,163,000 is for 
     Management and Administration and $1,300,000 for the Federal 
     Law Enforcement Training Accreditation Board. The amount 
     provided under this heading does not include $472,000, as 
     requested, for a civilian pay raise. Should the President 
     provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is assumed that the 
     cost of the pay raise will be absorbed within existing 
     appropriations for fiscal year 2013.

      Support of the DHS Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer

       The Department informed and briefed the Committees that 
     beginning in fiscal year 2012, it planned to partner with the 
     Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) through an 
     IAA to fulfill its human resource service requirements, with 
     FLETC being fully reimbursed through the Working Capital 
     Fund. The Department assured the Committees that this 
     partnership would result in reduced costs for human resources 
     service needs for headquarters components and deliver these 
     services in a more efficient manner. Since the initial 
     announcement, the Chief Human Capital Officer has decided to 
     modify the execution plan, potentially moving some functions 
     back to DHS Headquarters. There is no objection to this 
     arrangement as long as it does not adversely impact FLETC's 
     mission requirements. As such, the Office of the Chief Human 
     Capital Officer and FLETC are directed to brief the 
     Committees no later than 90 days after the date of enactment 
     of this Act on the current plan to deliver human resource 
     services.

             Full Utilization of FLETC Training Facilities

       In the current fiscal environment, law enforcement agencies 
     are not hiring at the rate that has been experienced in the 
     past ten years. For that reason, FLETC is experiencing lower 
     demand for basic training and has greater capacity to support 
     advanced training and potentially other activities. FLETC is 
     encouraged to ensure that its facilities and assets are fully 
     utilized to support the needs of its customers. For example, 
     if training does not fully utilize firing ranges, FLETC 
     should consider use of firing ranges for law enforcement 
     qualification requirements. FLETC is directed to brief the 
     Committees within 60 days of the date of enactment of this 
     Act on its utilization rates.


     ACQUISITIONS, CONSTRUCTION, IMPROVEMENTS, AND RELATED EXPENSES

       A total of $28,385,000 is provided for ``Acquisitions, 
     Construction, Improvements, and Related Expenses.''

                         Science and Technology


                     MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION

       The bill provides $132,000,000 for ``Management and 
     Administration,'' including not to exceed $7,650 for official 
     reception and representation expenses. The amount provided 
     includes a reduction of $228,000 for the pay raise. Should 
     the President provide a civilian pay raise for 2013, it is 
     assumed that the cost of the pay raise will be absorbed 
     within existing appropriations for fiscal year 2013.


           RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, ACQUISITION, AND OPERATIONS

       The bill provides $703,471,000 for ``Research, Development, 
     Acquisition, and Operations.''
       The amount provided for this appropriation by PPA is as 
     follows:

Research, Development, and Innovation......................$450,555,000
Laboratory Facilities.......................................164,932,000
Acquisition and Operations Support...........................47,984,000
University Programs..........................................40,000,000
                                                       ________________
                                                       
Total, Research, Development, Acquisition and Operations...$703,471,000

                 Research, Development, and Innovation

       The bill includes $450,555,000 for Research, Development, 
     and Innovation (RDI). This funding is expected to permit the 
     Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) to restart and 
     sustain its efforts in its top priority areas, to include 
     biological defense, cybersecurity, border security, and first 
     responder technologies. However, the Committees do not 
     support having RDI as an undifferentiated PPA for this 
     activity, breakouts by research thrust areas are preferred. 
     At the same time, since funding is below the request, some 
     adjustment will be made to prioritize the funding. S&T is 
     directed, as was done in the joint explanatory statement 
     accompanying Public Law 112-74, to provide to the Committees 
     a detailed breakout of funding levels proposed for each of 
     its research thrust areas within the RDI PPA, and submit this 
     no later than 30 days after the date of enactment of this 
     Act. These revised allocations by thrust area shall 
     subsequently serve as PPAs and control levels for fiscal year 
     2013 for purposes of reprogramming notification and approval, 
     governed by the requirements of the general provisions in 
     Title V of this Act. This funding plan shall also include 
     project-level detail on how S&T intends to fund individual 
     research initiatives within each thrust area PPA.

                           Portfolio Reviews

       S&T is directed to brief the Committees on the results of 
     any portfolio reviews conducted in fiscal year 2013 no later 
     than 30 days after completion of the review and assessment of 
     its results. As required by the House report, the briefing 
     shall include an assessment of the most promising projects, 
     an appraisal of those that scored poorly, any plans to modify 
     or reallocate funding from underperforming initiatives, as 
     well as a detailed overview of how S&T measures and 
     scrutinizes the cost and schedule of its research projects.

                          Customer Engagement

       S&T is directed to brief the Committees no later than 60 
     days after the date of enactment of this Act on the process 
     for determining each customer's research and development 
     needs; for prioritizing S&T work for them; and for assessing 
     customer satisfaction with S&T's work. The briefing shall 
     also describe the extent to which S&T customers are involved 
     in the Directorate's portfolio reviews.

                             Apex Projects

       S&T and its partner components are directed to brief the 
     Committees no later than 60 days after the date of enactment 
     of this Act, and periodically thereafter on funding, 
     schedule, and progress of Apex projects. S&T is also directed 
     to notify the Committees at least 14 days before initiating a 
     new Apex project.

                National Bio- and Agro-defense Facility

       The bill provides $37,500,000 within the Laboratory 
     Facilities PPA for the National Bio- and Agro-defense 
     Facility (NBAF). This funding shall be applied, in 
     conjunction with $90,000,000 in previous appropriations, to 
     the construction of the new biological security level 
     facility needed to handle large animal research into 
     infectious animal and zoonotic diseases. If additional funds 
     are to be considered for NBAF in fiscal year 2014, or any 
     fiscal year thereafter, such funds must be in addition to the 
     Department's enacted budget, thereby not displacing resources 
     for Departmental programs. S&T is directed to submit a 
     detailed update of its fiscal year 2013 NBAF construction 
     plan and schedule no later than 60 days after the date of 
     enactment of this Act.

                   Plum Island Animal Disease Center

       S&T is directed to provide with the fiscal year 2014 budget 
     an updated and detailed report on projected costs required to 
     keep Plum Island Animal Disease Center sustainable in the 
     short- and medium-term, and update periodically as estimates 
     change. The report shall include cost estimates and plans for 
     repair as a result of damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.

                        Cyber Security Research

       The Committees support increased funding for cyber security 
     research. The Department is encouraged to fund multi-
     disciplinary programs of study and research that focus on 
     addressing cyber security problems on a global scale, as 
     specified in the Senate report. In addition, S&T is 
     encouraged to pursue cyber security programs that will assist

[[Page S1561]]

     the U.S. financial industry, as required in the Senate 
     report. While a specific level of funding is not directed, as 
     proposed by the House, S&T is expected to take advantage of, 
     and leverage, the expertise of existing governmental 
     organizations to improve DHS cyber security capabilities, to 
     include the use of competitively awarded research and 
     development projects.
       S&T is also directed to submit a report no later than 90 
     days after the date of enactment of this Act on the 
     expenditure of funds for financial sector cyber attack 
     simulations and outcomes, as required by the Senate report.

                         Reporting Requirements

       S&T is directed to provide in conjunction with the 
     President's fiscal year 2014 budget request, the results of 
     its research and development for the prior fiscal year, and a 
     report on the amounts de-obligated from projects during the 
     prior fiscal year and to what projects those funds were 
     subsequently obligated. S&T shall also provide quarterly 
     briefings to the Committees on the test and evaluation status 
     of all level 1 acquisitions. In addition, no later than April 
     3, 2013, S&T shall brief the Committee on progress in 
     implementing its new strategic initiatives, as specified in 
     the Senate report.

                        Disaster Communications

       In lieu of direction in the House report, the Department of 
     Homeland Security, the Federal Communications Commission, and 
     the National Institute of Standards and Technology are 
     encouraged to explore existing methods and technologies to 
     sustain communications during disasters, and to brief the 
     Committees on its findings within 180 days of the date of 
     enactment of this Act.

                          Disaster Resilience

       Within the funds provided for disaster resilience research, 
     S&T is encouraged to work with appropriate universities and 
     existing Federal research centers, as discussed in the Senate 
     report.

                                Canines

       As discussed in both the House and Senate reports, the 
     Department is encouraged to strongly consider the development 
     of standards, protocols and certifications for the breeding, 
     training, and deployment of explosives-detection canines.

     brief the Committees on the results of rail detection 
     solutions no later than 30 days after the date of enactment 
     of this Act. If the results of this testing prove successful 
     and result in a priority shift in funding needs to support 
     the GNDA, DNDO is directed to maintain the possibility of 
     restarting these efforts with funding provided for Systems 
     Development.

                          Test and Evaluation

                      TITLE V--GENERAL PROVISIONS

       Section 501. A provision is continued that no part of any 
     appropriation shall remain available for obligation beyond 
     the current year unless expressly provided.
       Section 502. A provision is continued that unexpended 
     balances of prior appropriations may be merged with new 
     appropriation accounts and used for the same purpose, subject 
     to reprogramming guidelines.
       Section 503. A provision is continued that provides 
     authority to reprogram appropriations within an account and 
     to transfer up to 5 percent between appropriations accounts 
     with 15-day advance notification to the Committees. A 
     detailed funding table identifying programs, projects, and 
     activities is included at the end of this statement. This 
     table along with funding levels specified in the statement 
     shall serve as the control level for all reprogrammings. 
     These reprogramming guidelines shall be complied with by all 
     agencies funded by this Act.
       The Department shall submit reprogramming requests on a 
     timely basis and provide complete explanations of the 
     reallocations proposed, including detailed justifications of 
     the increases and offsets, and any specific impact the 
     proposed changes will have on the budget request for the 
     following fiscal year and future-year appropriations 
     requirements. Each request submitted to the Committees should 
     include a detailed table showing the proposed revisions at 
     the account, program, project, and activity level to the 
     funding and staffing (full-time equivalent position) levels 
     for the current fiscal year and to the levels requested in 
     the President's budget for the following fiscal year.
       The Department shall manage its programs and activities 
     within the levels appropriated. The Department should only 
     submit reprogramming or transfer requests in the case of an 
     unforeseeable emergency or situation that could not have been 
     predicted when formulating the budget request for the current 
     fiscal year. When the Department submits a reprogramming or 
     transfer request to the Committees and does not receive 
     identical responses from the House and Senate, it is the 
     responsibility of the Department to reconcile the House and 
     Senate differences before proceeding, and if reconciliation 
     is not possible, to consider the reprogramming or transfer

  DIVISION E--MILITARY CONSTRUCTION AND VETERANS AFFAIRS, AND RELATED 
                   AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2013

       Matters Addressed by Only One Committee.--The language and 
     allocations set forth in House Report 112-491 and Senate 
     Report 112-168 should be complied with unless specifically 
     addressed to the contrary in this explanatory statement. 
     Report language included by the House, which is not changed 
     by the report of the Senate or this explanatory statement, 
     and Senate report language, which is not changed by this 
     explanatory statement, is approved by the Committees on 
     Appropriations of both Houses of Congress. This explanatory 
     statement, while repeating some report language for emphasis, 
     does not intend to negate the language referred to above 
     unless expressly provided herein. In cases where the House or 
     the Senate has directed the submission of a report, such 
     report is to be submitted to both Houses of Congress. House 
     or Senate reporting requirements with deadlines prior to, or 
     within 15 days after, enactment of this Act shall be 
     submitted no later than 60 days after enactment of this Act. 
     All other reporting deadlines not changed by this explanatory 
     statement are to be met.
       Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs Joint 
     Collaboration on Medical Facility Construction.--Having the 
     Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Veterans 
     Affairs (VA) medical facility construction accounts in the 
     same bill allows the Committees to review coordinated efforts 
     and efficiencies within the two systems. An overarching 
     concern of the Committees has been to facilitate the seamless 
     transition from active duty service member to veteran, 
     including the transition from DOD to VA medical facilities. 
     There have been multiple instances in which DOD and the VA 
     have failed to coordinate medical facility construction 
     efforts, in particular, where the VA is currently collocated 
     with an existing DOD medical facility, but hospital 
     replacement facilities are planned and budgeted in the 
     military construction budget without coordination or 
     consultation with the VA. Better coordination between the two 
     Departments on construction activities, where appropriate, 
     has the potential to save money by reducing duplicative 
     construction costs, and provides a unique opportunity for 
     creating more efficient use of medical equipment once the 
     hospitals or outpatient clinics become operational. The 
     TRICARE Management Activity and the Veterans Health 
     Administration are therefore directed to report to the 
     congressional defense committees no later than 180 days after 
     enactment of this Act on the current construction 
     coordination between the two agencies. The report should 
     include a comparison by fiscal year of the TRICARE Management 
     Activity and the Veterans Health Administration's future year 
     construction plans for new facilities that currently are 
     collocated as well as any potential new collocation sites.
       Hiring of veterans.--The unemployment rates among the 
     Nation's veterans, particularly for those who have recently 
     left active duty, continue to be of concern. With impending 
     force reductions, this problem is likely to worsen. The 
     Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), as well as the 
     Department of Defense and the domestic agencies funded in 
     title III of this division, are urged to redouble their 
     efforts to hire returning veterans and to exceed where 
     possible statutory requirements for veterans hiring 
     preferences. In recognizing the skills and specialty 
     certifications veterans have received through their military 
     training, these agencies will gain a superior workforce and 
     at the same time demonstrate the Government's appreciation 
     for our veterans' service.

                                TITLE I

                         DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

                       ITEMS OF GENERAL INTEREST

       Incrementally Funded Projects.--The Administration 
     requested several large military construction projects that 
     can be incrementally funded, but were instead submitted as 
     large single-year requests, in accordance with a directive 
     from the Office of Management and Budget to the Department of 
     Defense to severely restrict the use of incremental funding 
     for military construction. The Committees on Appropriations 
     of both Houses of Congress have previously notified the 
     Administration that they reserve the prerogative to provide 
     incremental funding where appropriate, in accordance with 
     authorizing legislation. In general, the Committees support 
     full funding for military construction projects. In some 
     cases, however, incremental funding makes fiscal and 
     programmatic sense. The bill therefore incrementally funds 
     the following projects: Ambulatory Care Center Phase 3, Joint 
     Base San Antonio, Texas; STRATCOM Replacement Facility, 
     Increment 2, Offutt AFB, Nebraska; U.S. Military Academy 
     Cadet Barracks, West Point, New York; and Aegis Ashore 
     Missile Defense Complex, Deveselu, Romania.

                      MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, ARMY

       The bill appropriates $1,684,323,000 for Military 
     Construction, Army. Within this amount, the bill provides 
     $80,173,000 for study, planning, design, architect and 
     engineer services, and host nation support.
       Arlington Cemetery.--The budget request proposed to fund 
     Arlington National Cemetery through three accounts: 
     $25,000,000 to be provided through Operation and Maintenance, 
     Army, $103,000,000 to be provided through Military 
     Construction, Army, and $45,800,000 to be provided through 
     Cemeterial Expenses, Army for a total of $173,800,000. 
     Instead of including the $103,000,000 in title I as 
     requested, the funds are provided in title III of Division E 
     under Cemeterial Expenses, Army.

              MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, NAVY AND MARINE CORPS

       The bill appropriates $1,549,164,000 for Military 
     Construction, Navy and Marine Corps. Within this amount, the 
     bill provides $102,619,000 for study, planning, design, 
     architect and engineer services.

                    MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, AIR FORCE

       The bill appropriates $322,543,000 for Military 
     Construction, Air Force. Within this amount, the bill 
     provides $18,635,000 for study, planning, design, architect 
     and engineer services.

                  MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, DEFENSE-WIDE

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

       The bill appropriates $3,582,423,000 for Military 
     Construction, Defense-Wide. Within this amount, the bill 
     provides $315,562,000 for study, planning, design, architect 
     and engineer services.
       Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP).--The bill 
     provides $150,000,000 for ECIP. Additionally, the bill 
     provides $10,000,000 in dedicated funding for ECIP planning 
     and design. The Committees strongly support the efforts of 
     the Department of Defense to promote energy conservation, 
     green building initiatives, energy security, and investment 
     in renewable energy resources, and commend the leadership of 
     the Department and the services for making energy efficiency 
     a key component of construction on military installations. 
     The Department is urged to use the dedicated planning and 
     design funds to invest in innovative renewable energy 
     projects as well as projects that enhance energy security at 
     military installations. The Department is also encouraged to 
     request dedicated planning and design funding for ECIP in 
     future budget submissions.

     provides $15,951,000 for study, planning, design, architect 
     and engineer services.

                  MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, NAVY RESERVE

       The bill appropriates $49,532,000 for Military 
     Construction, Navy Reserve. Within this amount, the bill 
     provides $2,118,000 for study, planning, design, architect 
     and engineer services.

                MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, AIR FORCE RESERVE

       The bill appropriates $10,979,000 for Military 
     Construction, Air Force Reserve. Within this amount, the bill 
     provides $2,879,000 for study, planning, design, architect 
     and engineer services.

     NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION SECURITY INVESTMENT PROGRAM

       The bill appropriates $4,641,000 for Family Housing 
     Construction, Army.

             FAMILY HOUSING OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, ARMY

       The bill appropriates $530,051,000 for Family Housing 
     Operation and Maintenance, Army.

           FAMILY HOUSING CONSTRUCTION, NAVY AND MARINE CORPS

       The bill appropriates $102,182,000 for Family Housing

     Operation and Maintenance, Navy and Marine Corps.

                 FAMILY HOUSING CONSTRUCTION, AIR FORCE

       The bill appropriates $83,824,000 for Family Housing 
     Construction, Air Force.

          FAMILY HOUSING OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, AIR FORCE

       The bill appropriates $497,829,000 for Family Housing 
     Operation and Maintenance, Air Force.

         FAMILY HOUSING OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, DEFENSE-WIDE

       The bill appropriates $52,238,000 for Family Housing 
     Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide.

[[Page S1572]]

         DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE FAMILY HOUSING IMPROVEMENT FUND

       The bill appropriates $1,786,000 for the Department of 
     Defense Family Housing Improvement Fund.

            DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HOMEOWNERS ASSISTANCE FUND

       The bill provides no appropriation for the Department of 
     Defense Homeowners Assistance Fund in fiscal year 2013, the 
     same as the budget request.

          CHEMICAL DEMILITARIZATION CONSTRUCTION, DEFENSE-WIDE

       The bill appropriates $151,000,000 for Chemical 
     Demilitarization Construction, Defense-Wide.

            DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE BASE CLOSURE ACCOUNT 1990

       The bill appropriates $409,396,000 for the Department of 
     Defense Base Closure Account 1990. This amount is $60,000,000 
     above the budget request to accelerate the pace of 
     environmental cleanup at closed or realigned military 
     installations. Based on requirements identified by the 
     services, of the additional funding provided, $30,000,000 
     shall be made available for the Army, and $30,000,000 for the 
     Navy. These funds are to be allocated at the discretion of 
     the services to meet the most pressing unfunded environmental 
     cleanup requirements at closed or realigned bases.

            DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE BASE CLOSURE ACCOUNT 2005

       The bill appropriates $126,697,000 for the Department of 
     Defense Base Closure Account 2005. Significant bid savings 
     have been realized in the BRAC 2005 military construction 
     program, primarily as a result of the favorable bid climate 
     over the past several years, and these savings should be used 
     to offset current BRAC 2005 requirements. The bill therefore 
     rescinds $132,513,000 from previous BRAC 2005 appropriations 
     (Sec. 131 of Administrative Provisions) to offset the fiscal 
     year 2013 request.
       BRAC 133.--In an effort to mitigate traffic congestion 
     surrounding the Mark Center site, the bill includes a 
     limitation on the number of parking spaces the Department may 
     utilize at the Mark Center to no more than 2,500, with the 
     exception of disabled parking spaces. The limitation may be 
     waived in part, but not in whole, if the Secretary of Defense 
     certifies that none of the intersections surrounding the Mark 
     Center reach failing levels of service ``e'' or ``f,'' as 
     defined by the Transportation Research Board Highway Capacity 
     Manual, during a consecutive 90 day period.

                       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS

             (Including Transfers and Rescissions of Funds)

       The bill includes section 101 limiting the use of funds

                                TITLE II

                     DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS

       Budget justification requirements.--Both the House and 
     Senate Committees on Appropriations believe that the 
     Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) must strengthen its 
     presentation of budget justification materials in several 
     areas. There is agreement with the direction of the Senate 
     regarding the budget detail for components of the Veterans 
     Health Administration (VHA) such as the VHA central office, 
     Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) staff offices and 
     centralized field support offices. The VA is requested to 
     provide more detailed information about the Board of Veterans 
     Appeals staffing and claims workloads and is required to 
     provide the data requested in the House report pertaining to 
     full-time equivalents and funding within administrative line 
     items. The VA is also required to provide a breakout of all 
     reimbursable or cost sharing arrangements exceeding 
     $5,000,000 in value that are in place for crosscutting 
     efforts across the Department.

                    VETERANS BENEFITS ADMINISTRATION


                       COMPENSATION AND PENSIONS

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

       The bill appropriates $60,599,855,000 for Compensation and 
     Pensions. The bill reflects new estimates provided in the 
     Administration's mid-session review. Of the amount provided, 
     not more than $9,204,000 is to be transferred to General 
     Operating Expenses, Veterans Benefits Administration and 
     Information Technology Systems, for reimbursement of 
     necessary expenses in implementing provisions of title 38.


                         READJUSTMENT BENEFITS

       The bill appropriates $12,023,458,000 for Readjustment 
     Benefits. The bill reflects new estimates provided in the 
     Administration's mid-session review. The bill provides full 
     funding for the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program 
     (VRAP), for which the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) 
     estimates it will obligate more than $1,100,000,000 in fiscal 
     year 2013.


                   VETERANS INSURANCE AND INDEMNITIES

       The bill appropriates $104,600,000 for Veterans Insurance 
     and Indemnities.


                 VETERANS HOUSING BENEFIT PROGRAM FUND

       The bill appropriates such sums as may be necessary for 
     costs associated with direct and guaranteed loans for the 
     Veterans Housing Benefit Program Fund. The bill limits 
     obligations for direct loans to not more than $500,000 and 
     provides that $157,814,000 shall be available for 
     administrative expenses.


            VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION LOANS PROGRAM ACCOUNT

       The bill appropriates $19,000 for the cost of direct loans 
     from the Vocational Rehabilitation Loans Program Account, 
     plus $346,000 to be paid to the appropriation for General 
     Operating Expenses, Veterans Benefits Administration. The 
     bill provides for a direct loan limitation of $2,729,000.


          NATIVE AMERICAN VETERAN HOUSING LOAN PROGRAM ACCOUNT

       The bill appropriates $1,089,000 for administrative 
     expenses of the Native American Veteran Housing Loan Program 
     Account.

                     VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION

                           Areas of Interest

       Advance appropriation budgeting.--It is incumbent upon the 
     Department to provide more detailed explanations within its 
     budget justification so the Committees on Appropriations of 
     the House of Representatives and the Senate (``Committees'') 
     will have an accurate and complete view of how its advance 
     funding requests were determined. There is agreement with the 
     data requirements for advance funding described in the Senate 
     report.
       Reprogramming for medical care initiatives.--The bill 
     includes an administrative provision requiring the Department 
     to submit a reprogramming request whenever funding allocated 
     in the fiscal year 2013 expenditure plan for a medical care 
     initiative differs by more than $25,000,000 from the 
     allocation shown in the 2013 congressional budget 
     justification. Due to the nature of advance appropriations, 
     the Department submits its budget request almost seven full 
     fiscal year quarters before the funding becomes available for 
     obligation. Medical care funding is dynamic in nature, and 
     this length of time between budget submission and obligation 
     creates a situation in which funding priorities and needs may 
     change. This has limited the Committees' ability to provide 
     proper budget oversight of initiatives which are budgeted 
     outside of the actuarial model. Therefore, reprogramming 
     requests submitted throughout the year should identify 
     current year estimates whenever the Department intends to 
     make significant funding shifts within these initiatives. The 
     term ``medical care initiative'' in the bill language refers 
     only to the initiatives, not legislative proposals, in the 
     ``Initiatives/Legislative Proposals'' section of the VA 
     Medical Care Obligations by Program display on page 1A-5 of 
     Volume 2 of the fiscal year 2013 budget justification. The 
     bill language does not refer to special purpose funds 
     allocated outside the Veterans Equitable Resource Allocation 
     model. The Committees request that reprogrammings be 
     identified only in the aggregate and not by specific project 
     or location.
       There is agreement with the Senate direction regarding life 
     cycle costs as it relates to the acquisition of batteries. 
     The Department is directed to submit the reporting 
     requirement contained in the Senate report no later than 180 
     days after enactment of this Act.


                            MEDICAL SERVICES

       The bill appropriates $43,557,000,000 in advance for fiscal 
     year 2014 for Medical Services. The bill also provides 
     $155,000,000 for fiscal year 2013 in addition to the advance 
     appropriation provided last year. The bill includes language 
     citing new authority for services for those affected by 
     drinking water contamination at Camp Lejeune, NC. Additional 
     fiscal year 2013 funding is provided for hiring mental health 
     providers and offsetting a projected decline in revenues.
       The bill provides $1,351,851,000 in fiscal year 2014 to 
     fully implement VA homeless assistance programs, including 
     the providers grant and per diem, domiciliary care for 
     homeless veterans, and the HUD-VA supported housing program. 
     In addition, the bill provides $4,816,132,000 for homeless 
     veteran treatment costs in fiscal year 2014.
       The bill provides the full fiscal year 2014 request of 
     $6,453,027,000 for mental health programs, including 
     $443,332,000 for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), 
     $246,400,000 for traumatic brain injury, and $75,605,000 for 
     suicide prevention.
       The Committees support the VA effort to hire an additional 
     1,600 mental health clinicians and 300 support staff as part 
     of an ongoing review of mental health operations. The VA is 
     directed to provide the Committees, no later than 60 days 
     after enactment of this Act, a detailed staffing plan and 
     timeline to add these additional personnel.
       The bill provides $250,000,000 for the Office of Rural 
     Health. The VA is making substantial efforts to improve 
     access and quality of care for rural areas, but there is 
     concern that significant gaps remain. To address the ongoing 
     challenges in recruiting and retaining highly qualified 
     healthcare professionals in rural areas, the VA is urged to 
     consider innovative ways to rotate practitioners through 
     rural areas, including the approaches suggested in the Senate 
     report. Secondly, the VA is urged to move expeditiously in 
     its implementation of the grant program that will allow 
     veterans service organizations to provide better 
     transportation options for rural veterans seeking care at VA 
     facilities. Finally, the VA is urged to thoroughly test the 
     approach for providing non-VA care in rural facilities that 
     is being demonstrated in the Access Received Closer to Home 
     program (Project ARCH) and consider expanding Project ARCH's 
     reach.
       There is agreement with the direction of the House 
     regarding an annual report detailing the distribution of 
     medical services funding among the VISNs, central 
     headquarters, and medical centers.
       The time period for the Office of Management and Budget's 
     (OMB) review of the regulation establishing VA participation 
     in State prescription drug monitoring boards has expired. OMB 
     is urged to facilitate publication of the regulation so that 
     the program may be implemented before the end of the calendar 
     year.
       The VA is urged to work in conjunction with the Department 
     of Justice's veterans treatment courts program to provide 
     collaborative, rehabilitative approaches for continuing 
     judicial supervision over offenders who are veterans.


                     MEDICAL SUPPORT AND COMPLIANCE

       The bill appropriates $6,033,000,000 in advance for fiscal 
     year 2014 for Medical Support and Compliance.


                           MEDICAL FACILITIES

       The bill appropriates $4,872,000,000 in advance for fiscal 
     year 2014 for Medical Facilities.
       In March of 2012, the Committees were notified that 
     contracting errors were made in the Solicitation for Offers 
     to build the Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) in 
     Southwest Louisiana. These errors have resulted in delays in 
     the opening of the Lake Charles CBOC and the expansion of the 
     Lafayette CBOC. The Department is directed to continue to 
     provide the Committees regular updates on the progress being 
     made to correct the errors and to complete these CBOCs in an 
     expeditious manner.


                    MEDICAL AND PROSTHETIC RESEARCH

       The bill appropriates $582,674,000 for Medical and 
     Prosthetic Research.


                    NATIONAL CEMETERY ADMINISTRATION

       The bill appropriates $258,284,000 for the National 
     Cemetery Administration (NCA). Of the amount provided, 
     $25,828,000 is available until September 30, 2014.
       There is concern that the NCA is not adequately serving the 
     Nation's veterans in rural areas. While the strategy to serve 
     rural veterans outlined in the fiscal year 2013 budget 
     request is a partial step, it fails to offer a long-term 
     strategy for addressing this underserved veteran population. 
     There is concern that the NCA places undue emphasis on major 
     urban areas whereas the NCA's effort toward rural areas 
     appears to be a lower priority. As a result, the bill 
     includes language requiring the Secretary to provide a report 
     to the Committees within 180 days of enactment of this Act 
     outlining a strategy to address the shortcomings identified 
     in House Report 112-491, with proposed policies and an 
     implementation timeframe. In addition, the bill requires the 
     Government Accountability Office to conduct a review of this 
     strategy and submit it to the Committees not later than 180 
     days after the Committees receive the strategy.
       The bill includes language directing the Secretary to issue 
     guidelines on committal

[[Page S1582]]

     services at VA national cemeteries to ensure that veterans' 
     families may hold committal services with any religious or 
     secular content they desire and invite the participation of 
     an honor guard and veterans service organizations, subject to 
     VA security, safety, and law enforcement regulations. The 
     bill also restricts VA from editing or controlling the 
     content of speeches at events at national cemeteries, subject 
     to VA authorities provided in section 2413 of title 38, 
     United States Code.

                      DEPARTMENTAL ADMINISTRATION


                         GENERAL ADMINISTRATION

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

       The bill appropriates $424,737,000 for General 
     Administration. Of the amount provided, $20,837,000 is 
     available for obligation until September 30, 2014. The bill 
     includes language permitting the transfer of funds from this 
     account to ``General Operating Expenses, Veterans Benefits 
     Administration.''
       The bill includes language designating that not less than 
     $86,006,000 is provided for the Board of Veterans Appeals. 
     The Department is directed to provide to the Committees 
     within 30 days of enactment of this Act a fiscal year 2013 
     staffing plan and detailed strategic plan to address wait 
     time and backlogs at the Board of Veterans Appeals.
       The bill includes language indicating that such sums as may 
     be necessary are provided so that the Department may comply 
     with the energy management requirements under the National 
     Energy Conservation Policy Act.
       The bill includes the following funding levels:


                       (in thousands of dollars)

       There is agreement with the House language for the Major 
     Construction account regarding a report on the contract audit 
     program for construction projects and the periodic reporting 
     done by building contractors. The report should be provided 
     by the VA central office. There is also agreement with the 
     Senate language for the General Administration account 
     requesting a report outlining processes that are in place to 
     ensure proper oversight of construction, including which 
     components of central oversight are performed outside of the 
     various VA administrations and whether spot audits are 
     performed in the field.
       There is agreement with House language regarding the VA 
     budget office being the primary communication source within 
     the VA to the Committees and their Members.

      GENERAL OPERATING EXPENSES, VETERANS BENEFITS ADMINISTRATION

       The bill appropriates $2,164,074,000 for General Operating 
     Expenses, Veterans Benefits Administration. The bill makes 
     available not to exceed $113,000,000 of this funding until 
     the end of fiscal year 2014.
       The lengthy wait time and persistent backlog of claims at 
     the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) continue to impose 
     an unacceptable burden on disabled veterans. The Department 
     has set 2015 as the date by which it plans to achieve a 
     significant reduction in the backlog of claims and to 
     increase the accuracy rate at all regional offices to 98 
     percent. There is agreement with direction and reporting 
     requirements in the Senate report, and the Department is 
     directed to submit one report 90 days after enactment of this 
     Act containing: (1) the metrics developed for evaluating the 
     success in reducing the backlog of claims and the average 
     adjudication time by utilizing external vendors in specific 
     areas of collecting claims materials; (2) the wait times, 
     accuracy rates, and backlog of disability claims decisions at 
     all 57 regional offices; (3) how the quality-review teams and 
     the quality initiatives at each regional office have affected 
     the performance, wait times, and rates at each location; and 
     (4) the specific metrics the VBA uses in determining 
     personnel performance.
       The Department is directed to provide quarterly reports on 
     the implementation of the Veterans Benefits Management System 
     (VBMS) and how the implementation has increased the 
     efficiency and timeliness of VBA claims processing, with the 
     quarterly reports including the number and location of the 
     regional offices that have adopted the paperless claims 
     processing system and the rollout of the individual improved 
     business processes.
       Recent findings by the Department of Veterans Affairs 
     Office of Inspector General that the Oakland, Los Angeles and 
     San Diego, California VA Regional Offices have high error 
     rates and claims processing times compared to other regional 
     offices across the Nation is unacceptable. For example, the 
     Inspector General found that 80 percent of claims reviewed in 
     the Los Angeles office were unnecessarily delayed and that in 
     one case a claim in Oakland had been pending for 8 years. The 
     Department is directed to submit a report to the Committees 
     no later than 90 days after enactment of this Act detailing 
     how the Inspector General's recommendations are being 
     implemented at these Regional Offices. The report shall also 
     include an explanation about why the Los Angeles office is 
     currently operating in what is referred to as ``safe mode,'' 
     which means that staff is not held accountable to VA 
     standards.

                     Information Technology Systems


                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

       The bill appropriates $3,327,444,000 for Information 
     Technology (IT) Systems. The bill identifies separately the 
     funding available for pay ($1,021,000,000); operations and 
     maintenance ($1,812,045,000); and systems development, 
     modernization, and enhancement ($494,399,000). The bill makes 
     $30,630,000 of pay funding available until the end of fiscal 
     year 2014; $126,000,000 of operations and maintenance funding 
     available until the end of fiscal year 2014; and all IT 
     systems development, modernization and enhancement funding 
     available until the end of fiscal year 2014.
       The bill includes language prohibiting the obligation of IT 
     development, modernization, and enhancement funding until the 
     VA submits a certification of the amounts to be obligated, in 
     part or in full, for each development project.
       The bill includes language permitting funding made 
     available for the three IT subaccounts to be transferred 
     among them after the VA requests and receives approval from 
     the Committees.
       The bill includes language providing that funding may be 
     transferred between development projects or to new projects 
     subject to the Committees' approval.
       The bill includes language restricting the amount of 
     funding that may be obligated to develop the integrated 
     Department of Defense/Department of Veterans Affairs (DOD-VA) 
     integrated electronic health record (iEHR) to 25 percent of 
     the funding provided until the DOD-VA Interagency Program 
     Office (IPO) provides the Committees an expenditure plan 
     including elements such as a long-term roadmap for the life 
     of the project, with annual and total spending for each 
     Department and quarterly milestones. The expenditure plan 
     should also be submitted to the Government Accountability 
     Office (GAO) for review. The Department of Defense 
     Appropriations Act has comparable bill language.
       There is concern that after four years of working to 
     establish a joint framework to collaborate and develop an 
     integrated electronic health record, the two Departments 
     still seem to be operating as separate entities. The 
     Committees support the creation of the IPO and recognize this 
     office as the single point of accountability for the 
     development and implementation of the integrated electronic 
     health record for both Departments. Unfortunately, since the 
     creation of the IPO and the naming of a director, there has 
     been little evidence of the benefit from establishing this 
     office, since both Departments still appear to operate as 
     separate entities. Despite repeated inquiries, neither of the 
     Departments nor the IPO has been able to provide Congress 
     with a firm total cost of the integrated system. There is 
     concern that the IPO is unable to maintain focus on its 
     defined goals, provide effective governance, manage and 
     maintain accountability on behalf of both Departments, and 
     provide Congress with detailed expenditure plans as well as 
     information regarding progress and future plans for this 
     project.
       As a result, the IPO is directed to deliver to the 
     congressional defense committees, the Senate and House 
     Subcommittees on Appropriations for Military Construction, 
     Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies, and to the GAO a 
     quarterly report that includes a detailed, plain English 
     narrative explanation of the cost and schedule of the iEHR 
     development, to include milestones, knowledge points, and 
     acquisition timelines as it impacts both Departments, as well 
     as quarterly obligation reports. The IPO is also directed to 
     continue briefing the Committees on a quarterly basis. The 
     GAO is directed to review these quarterly reports and provide 
     an annual report to the congressional defense committees and 
     the Senate and House Subcommittees on Appropriations for 
     Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies 
     on the cost and schedule of the iEHR.
       As part of the VA's modernization effort, the Department 
     plans to replace its current automated appointment scheduling 
     system with a modern application. The Committees support this 
     effort; however, there is concern that the VA has not 
     developed a clear strategy aimed at replacing this system. 
     Therefore the Department is directed to submit a report to 
     the Committees detailing the timeline, cost estimate, and 
     implementation strategy for replacing the scheduling system.
       Bill language is included making funds available for IT 
     development, modernization, and enhancement for the projects 
     and in the amounts specified in the following table:

       This table is intended to serve as the Department's 
     approved list of development projects; any requested changes 
     are subject to reprogramming guidelines.
       The bill directs the Department to submit an expenditure 
     plan to the Committees within 30 days of enactment of this 
     Act. This plan should be in the same format as the table 
     above.

                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

       The bill appropriates $115,000,000 for the Office of 
     Inspector General. Of the amount provided, $6,000,000 is 
     available for obligation until September 30, 2014. The 
     increase above the budget request is intended to be used for 
     review of VA spending on conferences, the NCA rural cemetery 
     strategy, and VHA audit and field review activities.

                      CONSTRUCTION, MAJOR PROJECTS

       The bill appropriates $532,470,000 for Construction, Major 
     Projects. The bill makes this funding available for five 
     years, except that $30,000,000 is made available until 
     expended.
       The Department is commended for beginning the process of 
     transitioning major construction to a five-year funding 
     cycle. During this implementation period, extended 
     availability is provided for a small amount of the funding 
     while the VA reaches the requirement that project design be 
     35 percent complete prior to requesting construction funding. 
     The extended availability will protect VA investment if 
     unanticipated circumstances mandate expenditures beyond the 
     five-year project window.
       The bill funds the following items as requested in the 
     budget submission:

    Major construction total................................532,470,000
       The VA is directed to submit a master plan at the time of 
     the budget submission describing each major construction 
     project included in the budget. The plan should include the 
     projected timeline for completion of each component of each 
     of the projects and the annual and total cost of each 
     project. The format of the DOD Form 1391 is a good model for 
     the VA to use to describe clearly and completely the expected 
     obligations for each project.

                      CONSTRUCTION, MINOR PROJECTS

       The bill appropriates $607,530,000 for Construction, Minor 
     Projects. The bill makes this funding available for five
