                              {time}  1924


                     In the Committee of the Whole

  Accordingly, the House resolved itself into the Committee of the 
Whole House on the state of the Union for the consideration of the bill 
(H.R. 4435) to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2015 for 
military activities of the Department of Defense and for military 
construction, to prescribe military personnel strengths for such fiscal 
year, and for other purposes, with Mr. Stewart in the chair.
  The Clerk read the title of the bill.
  The CHAIR. Pursuant to the rule, the bill is considered read the 
first time.
  The gentleman from California (Mr. McKeon) and the gentleman from 
Washington (Mr. Smith) each will control 30 minutes.
  The Chair recognizes the gentleman from California.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield myself such time as I may consume.
  Mr. Chairman, I rise in support of H.R. 4435, the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015.
  First, let me express my appreciation to Ranking Member Smith for his 
leadership and friendship. He has been an invaluable partner in 
upholding our committee's focus on providing for our men and women in 
uniform. I would also like to thank our colleagues on the Armed 
Services Committee for

[[Page H4542]]

their professionalism and their hard work.
  I am incredibly proud of the bipartisan, transparent, and inclusive 
process our committee undertakes each year. The bill under 
consideration today is a strong reflection of the bipartisan priorities 
and concerns shared by members of the committee, and is the result of 
diligent oversight that has been conducted throughout the year. It 
contains 154 amendments that were adopted during markup, and it passed 
out of committee with unanimous support.
  The bill would authorize $521 billion for national defense and an 
additional $79 billion for overseas contingency operations, consistent 
with the 2013 bipartisan budget agreement and the House-passed budget.
  While we do not yet have the details of the OCO request, our 
committee, the House Budget Committee, and the administration, all 
agree that these funds will be required to support a residual U.S. 
presence in Afghanistan; other ongoing operations, including in Africa; 
and the reset and retrograde of equipment for the active, Guard, and 
Reserve forces.
  The bill contains no earmarks. It provides vital national security 
resources for our troops while also maintaining our stewardship over 
the taxpayer dollar.
  The bill provides our warfighters, veterans, and their families with 
the care and support that they need, deserve, and have earned. It 
continues to advance the substantial reforms introduced in last year's 
NDAA aimed at preventing sexual assault in the military, and it takes 
several steps aimed at improving the military's suicide prevention 
programs. The bill would increase troop pay while rejecting cuts to 
TRICARE, housing allowances, and commissary benefits that would 
increase out-of-pocket expenses for military families.
  The legislation would provide our warfighters with the resources and 
authorities they need to support an enduring mission in Afghanistan and 
to continue pressuring al Qaeda and its affiliates. It also maintains 
strong accountability and monitoring mechanisms for U.S. funds, ensures 
the development of sound plans tied to resources, and continues the 
prohibitions on the transfer of detainees to the United States.
  I recently visited Afghanistan and was encouraged by the progress of 
coalition forces and developments within the Afghan society. Nearly 8 
million kids are in school, and a large percentage of those are girls, 
compared to the 700,000 that were attending school under Taliban rule. 
We need the President to signal his commitment and remove the 
uncertainty that persists among the Afghan people and our coalition 
partners, which al Qaeda and the Taliban continue to exploit. 
Afghanistan cannot return to being a safe haven for al Qaeda.
  In this era of declining resources, the committee was faced with 
difficult choices as we sought to preserve key capabilities and to 
ensure our Armed Forces could meet current threats and prepare for 
future challenges. The bill identifies savings in less critical areas 
that do not permanently damage the force or harm recruiting and 
retention.
  The legislation guards against achieving false short-term savings at 
the expense of vital long-term strategic capabilities.

                              {time}  1930

  For example, it supports the refueling of the USS George Washington--
an aircraft carrier with 25 years of service life remaining--and it 
prohibits the early retirement of Navy cruisers, dock landing ships, 
and the Air Force U-2 spy planes.
  These capabilities are vital to our commanders in the Pacific, as 
well as elsewhere across the globe. It also addresses shortfalls in 
readiness by resourcing several unmet requirements in equipment, 
training, and depot maintenance and by fully funding flying hour 
programs across the services.
  We must also get more defense for the dollar, which is why the 
committee has initiated a comprehensive defense reform effort. This 
bill begins that process with a series of provisions on institutional, 
acquisition, security, and strategy reforms.
  However, we must recognize that cost savings and reforms alone do not 
compensate for the significant cuts to defense in recent years. The 
Department of Defense has seen over $1 trillion cut from its budget. 
This year's budget request is over $30 billion less than last year's.
  The padding has been cut, and the Department is now cutting into the 
bone--cutting end strength, force structure, and readiness--which is 
increasing risk to our forces and their core missions. While this bill 
makes tough choices, Congress will be called upon to make impossible 
choices in the years ahead if sequestration is not addressed.
  For 52 straight years, the National Defense Authorization Act has 
been passed and signed into law. Congress has no higher responsibility 
than to provide for the common defense, and with that in mind, I look 
forward to passing this bill for the 53rd consecutive year, my last 
year as chairman and as a Member of Congress.
  Serving as chairman has been the great honor of my career. I am 
humbled by the many soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines whom I have 
met over the years and by the sacrifices that they and their families 
make to keep America safe. I am thankful for my colleagues on both 
sides of the aisle, and I am very appreciative of our staff.
  I reserve the balance of my time.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield myself such time as I 
may consume.
  First of all, I want to join the chairman in thanking him for the 
working relationship that he and I have enjoyed now through 4 years and 
four national defense authorization acts. It is one of the main 
principles of our committee in that it is bipartisan, that we work 
together, and we produce a product every year--52 straight years, the 
National Defense Authorization Act.
  That doesn't happen as a starting point, unless the chair of the 
committee takes the responsibility very seriously to make sure that our 
committee remains bipartisan. We have had a whole series of chairmen 
during my tenure who have done that, and Mr. McKeon has followed that 
tradition just as well as his predecessors. He has worked very closely 
with us.
  We do not always agree, but we work closely together, understanding 
that, at the end of the day, we have to produce a bill. So I thank him 
for that, and I recognize that this will be his last NDAA. In fact, 
this is the Buck McKeon National Defense Authorization Act. Mr. 
Thornberry and I were proud to cosponsor the amendment in committee to 
name this after Buck, for his great service to our committee.
  As always, I also want to thank the staff. I can't thank them enough 
for the work that they do and for the hours that they put in. They 
spent yesterday going through 320 amendments.
  Their expertise that they bring to this process is invaluable, and 
someday, I hope that the House Administration Committee recognizes that 
and actually gives us the amount of money we need to keep them. That is 
just a little sidenote on a different piece of legislation.
  This is, by and large, a good bill with one significant problem, 
which I will get to in a minute.
  First of all, as the chairman notes, we are still at war in 
Afghanistan. I would say that I think, at this point, our continuing 
commitment to Afghanistan is up to the Afghan people and, most 
importantly, is up to the next Afghan President. We need the bilateral 
security agreement to be signed. It has been agreed to.
  President Karzai has refused to sign it, but hopefully, the next 
President will. We have troops in harm's way, and this bill prioritizes 
protecting them. Nothing is more important than what we do here today.
  I am also pleased that this bill prioritizes Special Operations 
Command and cyber warfare, recognizing, as we heard in the previous 
piece of legislation about Boko Haram, that the main threat that we 
face going forward is from terrorism and asymmetric threats.
  I think we reflect that in this bill by funding those portions in the 
Defense Department that deal with those issues, and I think that is 
incredibly important.
  However, we do have a budget problem, and put simply, we have a lot 
less money now than we thought we were

[[Page H4543]]

going to have. So that means that 3 years ago, when the Pentagon was 
planning what they were going to spend over the course of a decade, 
they had a much larger number than they have now.
  There are a whole bunch of reasons that number has gotten smaller, 
but it has. It will get even smaller if 8 more years of sequestration 
come to pass.
  Now, the administration put out a plan 3 years ago when they looked 
out 10 years and said: What should our strategy be? Then they looked 
out 10 years and said: What are the likely resources?
  When they put that plan out, they said: we know we are going to have 
to live with, roughly, $500 billion less than we thought we were. We 
can do it. Here is the strategy. Here is the plan that fits that.
  Since then, the budget has been shredded. It has been cut by even 
more. The plan they put forward now recognizes the fact that it doesn't 
fund what they would like to fund because Congress passed a budget that 
cuts the Defense Department by more than they would like. In fact, the 
administration asked for an additional $28 billion this year and an 
additional $150 billion over 5 years, in order to fully fund that.
  That, apparently, is not forthcoming, so what they did is they put 
forward a series of proposals to try as best as they could to save 
money in a way that protects our force, and they did it in a number of 
different areas.
  They proposed a BRAC; they proposed about $2 billion in savings over 
5 years to various personnel accounts; they got rid of the A-10; they 
got rid of the U-2; they proposed laying up 14 ships. Those were the 
main proposals out.
  I am sorry. I forgot that they proposed shifting air assets in the 
Guard and Reserve to save $12 billion over 5 years. Those were the 
proposals they put on the table.
  The problem with this bill is that it rejects every single one of 
those proposals. How do we make the money work on that? Primarily by 
creative accounting; with the Guard and Reserve, for instance, we say 
no changes can be made in 2015.
  They weren't planning on making any changes in 2015 that were going 
to cost money, but if this stops them from doing it going forward, they 
are put into a deep hole.
  On the 14 ships that they wanted to lay up, we raid the modernization 
account to pay for keeping those 14 ships operational. So we get 
creative about it, but next year, the reckoning will come, frankly, 
sequestration or no sequestration. If sequestration happens, it is 
going to be really bad; but even if it doesn't, we still will not have 
addressed the long-term needs of our budget.
  I will have a couple of amendments, one on BRAC and one on those 14 
ships, that will give us an opportunity to, I think, make a better 
choice because the other way that we are able to preserve those 
programs is that we cut from the President's budget about $1.8 billion 
in readiness.
  $1.2 billion is clear. The other 633 was to save the A-10, and it 
comes out of OCO. A good chunk of OCO goes to rebuild readiness; so 
basically, we take $1.8 billion out of readiness, which puts us down 
the path to a hollow force that none of us wants. As we go forward to 
conference, we are going to need to make some of those tougher choices.
  I do thank the chairman for his work and for what is contained in 
this bill. I look forward to debating the amendments, and I look 
forward to--knock on wood--passing for the 53rd straight year the 
National Defense Authorization Act, as is our primary responsibility.
  I reserve the balance of my time.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield 3 minutes to the gentleman from 
Texas (Mr. Thornberry), my friend and colleague, who is the vice 
chairman of the Armed Services Committee and who is the chairman of the 
Intelligence, Emerging Threats, and Capabilities Subcommittee.
  Mr. THORNBERRY. I thank the chairman for yielding.
  Mr. Chairman, I want to start by commending the leadership of 
Chairman McKeon and Ranking Member Smith in getting this bill to the 
floor in such a timely way, especially after the President's budget was 
quite late, but also in getting this bill here on a unanimous vote by 
the committee.
  None of us agrees with every provision that is in this bill, but 
members of the committee were able to put aside personal preferences on 
individual issues to support a bill that benefits the Nation overall, 
and I hope that the House will do likewise.
  I think it is important to emphasize that it has been a bipartisan 
effort, working together with the chairman and the ranking member and 
also with the chairmen of the subcommittees and with the ranking 
members of the subcommittees, that has gotten us to this place.
  I think it is especially appropriate for this bill to be named for 
Chairman McKeon, not only in recognition for his leadership on this 
bill, but for his leadership of the committee during some very 
challenging circumstances throughout his tenure.
  Some of those challenges have included our own budget issues, as was 
just addressed by the ranking member, as well as a myriad of threats 
around the world, so this measure that does so much for our country's 
security will always be associated with the many contributions of 
Chairman McKeon to our country's security.
  Mr. Chairman, this bill meets the budget targets of the House-passed 
budget resolution and also of the Ryan-Murray budget agreement. I agree 
with the ranking member in that it does not solve our budget issues in 
the future--we still have to grapple with those--but this year, it 
meets those requirements, and it does so by making some difficult 
choices.
  In addition, among the many provisions of this bill, there are those 
that start to make a modest start on some defense reforms that are 
being worked on by both the House and the Senate in coordination with 
the Pentagon and with private industry.

  I think everyone recognizes that we have to find a way to get more 
defense out of the money we spend, and there are some small but 
important steps to enable us to make greater progress in that area in 
the future, both by reducing overhead and by improving the way we 
acquire goods and services.
  This bill is also active in all areas of responsibility for the 
Subcommittee on Intelligence, Emerging Threats, and Capabilities, 
including military cyber, science and technology, information 
technology, defense intelligence, special operations, and 
counterterrorism and irregular warfare.
  I agree with the ranking member on the importance, especially, of 
cyber and special operations. In addition, we have coordinated with 
other subcommittees on a number of provisions that touch on the areas I 
have mentioned. In fact, I think the work among the subcommittees has 
been closer than I have ever seen it.
  In that regard, I want to express my appreciation for my partner on 
the IETC Subcommittee, the gentleman from Rhode Island (Mr. Langevin), 
for all of his insights and cooperative spirit that make our work 
together so beneficial and rewarding. Like the chairman, I appreciate 
all of the work of the staffs of the subcommittee and the full 
committee.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield 2 minutes to the 
gentleman from Rhode Island (Mr. Langevin), the ranking member of the 
Intelligence, Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee.
  (Mr. LANGEVIN asked and was given permission to revise and extend his 
remarks.)
  Mr. LANGEVIN. I thank the gentleman for yielding.
  Mr. Chairman, I rise in support of H.R. 4435, the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015.
  I would like to begin by thanking Chairman McKeon for his leadership 
of the committee and for all of his years of dedication to national 
security. It is appropriate that this act is named after him.
  I want to thank and recognize the ranking member, Adam Smith, for his 
leadership on the committee as well. He deeply cares about national 
security, and I appreciate the work that he has done on this mark.
  I also want to thank Congressman Mac Thornberry, the chair of the 
Intelligence, Emerging Threats, and Capabilities Subcommittee. It has 
been a privilege working with him. As the ranking member of the IETC 
Subcommittee, I do appreciate his bipartisan work, and I am pleased 
with the bill that we have produced this year.

[[Page H4544]]

  Mr. Chairman, the IETC portion of the bill authorizes approximately 
$7.6 billion for the U.S. Special Operations Command. Authorities 
necessary for Special Operations Forces to combat terrorism are 
extended in the bill, which also provides an additional $20 million for 
the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office, which gives our 
Special Operations Forces the cutting-edge capabilities and 
technologies that they need.
  The IETC Subcommittee also made investments in emerging technologies 
like electrical weapons, and I want to commend especially the Navy's 
efforts to move technologies like directed energy and railguns, in 
particular, out of the labs and into the field.
  Getting this game-changing technology into the hands of the Nation's 
sailors and into the hands of all of our warfighters will ultimately 
serve to realize the promise of research investment.
  In addition to our focus on research and development efforts, we must 
also put investments into education programs, so that there is a 
qualified science, technology, engineering, and mathematics--or STEM--
talent pool to benefit the DOD.
  I am particularly pleased that the bill provides a total of $55.5 
million for the National Defense Education Program. Additionally, the 
IETC portion of the bill includes provisions to strengthen the 
oversight of the intelligence community while ensuring that combat and 
commander intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance requirements 
are met.
  The Acting CHAIR (Mr. Rice of South Carolina). The time of the 
gentleman has expired.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. I yield the gentleman an additional 1 
minute.
  Mr. LANGEVIN. I thank the ranking member.
  Mr. Chairman, last but certainly not least, the bill also supports 
cyber operations and U.S. Cyber Command, while reducing redundant 
programs and increasing transparency and oversight.

                              {time}  1945

  As recent revelations of cyber incidents demonstrate, a trained and 
ready cyber force and robust defensive capabilities have never been 
more integral to our national security.
  These are just but a few of the highlights in the bill. In the 
interest of time, I will end there. But I do want to again thank the 
chairman and the ranking member for their leadership, all the members 
of the Armed Services Committee, as well as the staff of the committee, 
for all the work that they have put into this mark.
  I urge my colleagues to support the bill.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield 3 minutes to the gentleman from 
Virginia (Mr. Forbes), my friend and colleague and a member of the 
Armed Services Committee and chairman of the Seapower and Projection 
Forces Subcommittee.
  Mr. FORBES. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
  Mr. Chairman, I rise in support of the Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon 
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015. With the 
chairman's leadership and stewardship, I believe that this bill 
provides the right authorities within the budget limits provided.
  I continue to be impressed by Chairman McKeon's commitment to our 
national defense and particularly his leadership and zeal to complete 
the 54th annual National Defense Authorization Act. His inspirational 
determination and effort to provide for our national security will 
undoubtedly serve as a benchmark for our future.
  I also want to recognize my friend and ranking member of the Seapower 
and Projection Forces Subcommittee on the occasion of his retirement 
from the House of Representatives. Mike McIntyre has been a resolute 
supporter of the men and women in uniform. His departure after 
providing 18 years of support for our national defense and this 
institution will be sorely missed.
  As to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015, I 
continue to be concerned about the trajectory of our national defense 
and believe that our national security will be irreparably harmed if we 
continue on our current path. History is full of examples of nation-
states that underestimate the value of national security and the severe 
consequences of their failure. Our inability to change these trend 
lines will be measured in the sweat and blood of the men and women whom 
we collectively hold in such high esteem.
  While we support these men and women in words, I fear that the real 
damage to our servicemembers is being caused by the benign neglect of 
this administration and, at times, Congress, in terms of funding and 
effort. We must not stand idly by watching the continued dismantling of 
the world's finest military.
  As to the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee mark, I am 
pleased that we were successful in reversing the administration 
recommendation to eliminate an aircraft carrier. By restoring $796 
million for the long lead item procurement and detailed planning for 
the refueling and complex overhaul of the USS George Washington, we are 
taking the right steps to retain strategic options for future 
Presidents.
  I am also pleased that we funded two Arleigh Burke class destroyers, 
two Virginia class submarines, and two littoral combat ships. I want to 
especially highlight our incremental funding of the San Antonio class 
amphibious ship. This amphib will bring important support to our United 
States Marine Corps as we continue our strategic rebalance toward the 
Pacific.
  I remain very pleased with the direction of our projection forces. 
This bill provides strategic Air Force investments in terms of 
procuring 13 C-130J military transport variants, six KC-46A tankers, 
and significant research and development investments in the long-range 
strike bomber.
  While we have a long way to go to reverse some negative trends, I 
think this bill does a good job of supporting our forces within the 
budget constraints provided. However, we need to vigorously and 
resolutely seek another path to change our national security funding 
trajectory.
  I think this bill is another positive step on a long road to 
adequately support our national security, and I would urge my 
colleagues to support the Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield 2 minutes to the 
gentlelady from California (Ms. Loretta Sanchez), ranking member of the 
Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee.
  Ms. LORETTA SANCHEZ of California. Mr. Chair, I thank the ranking 
member and my colleague from California, Chairman McKeon, in 
particular, for all the work and guidance that he has given us as he 
leaves the Congress at the end of this year. I am sure we will fete you 
in better ways, but thank you for the work you have done.
  I want to thank the chairman of the Tactical Air and Land Forces 
Subcommittee, Chairman Mike Turner, for his leadership this year.
  We have worked in a bipartisan manner. We have had three critical 
goals in mind as we have done this: supporting our troops with the 
equipment that they need, cutting wasteful spending, and investing in 
our future.
  The subcommittee's portion of H.R. 4435 supports all of the high-
priority acquisition programs in the President's budget.
  H.R. 4435 provides $8.3 billion for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, 
$3.8 billion for Army aviation upgrades, $1.4 billion for the Ospreys, 
and $997 million for U.S. Marine Corps ground equipment.
  However, our subcommittee didn't just rubberstamp everything. We 
actually took a very careful look at what programs were working, which 
ones were slow, and what wasn't getting done. We were able to identify 
more than $600 million in funding that we put in other places in the 
bill. They were used to increase funding in numerous areas in an effort 
to provide additional equipment for our military and preserve critical 
production capabilities for the future.
  Specifically, the bill provides an additional $450 million for the 
EA-18G Growler aircraft for the Navy, $340 million for additional 
ground combat vehicles for the Army, $80 million in additional funds 
for the procurement of body armor, $250 million in funding for the 
National Guard and Reserve equipment account, and numerous other 
investments.

[[Page H4545]]

  Finally, the chairman's mark includes important oversight legislation 
on numerous major DOD programs to ensure that the Congress has the 
information it needs to make future judgments.
  The Acting CHAIR. The time of the gentlewoman has expired.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. I yield the gentlelady an additional 1 
minute.
  Ms. LORETTA SANCHEZ of California. This is a good government bill. 
Please vote for it.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield 3 minutes to the gentleman from 
South Carolina (Mr. Wilson), my friend and colleague and a member of 
the Armed Services Committee and chairman of the Military Personnel 
Subcommittee.
  Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Thank you, Chairman McKeon, for your 
leadership. Congratulations on the deserved naming in your honor of the 
National Defense Authorization Act.
  Mr. Chair, the military personnel provisions of H.R. 4435 are a 
product of an open, bipartisan process. H.R. 4435 provides our 
warfighters, veterans, and military families the care and support they 
need, deserve, and have earned.
  Specifically, this year's proposal continues to refine the Department 
of Defense sexual assault and response program while at the same time 
actively monitoring the Department's implementation of the significant 
reforms enacted by Congress over the past 2 years.
  In particular, the mark requires performance evaluations for 
commanding officers to include assessments of the command climate 
pertaining to sexual assault.
  In addition, the mark would require the Secretary of Defense to 
conduct a review, utilizing the services of an independent organization 
experienced in grocery retail analysis, of the defense commissary 
system and reverse some of the reductions to the commissary system.
  The mark would express the sense of Congress that the United States 
has a responsibility to continue to search for missing or captured 
members of the Armed Forces, leaving no one behind.
  Additionally, this would standardize the collection reporting and 
assessments of suicide data involving members of the Armed Forces and 
their family members.
  Although the mark follows the administration's request for annual end 
strength reductions, I have serious reservations about the end strength 
and force structure reduction of our military. America remains at war 
today, and will continue a global conflict with murderous illegal enemy 
combatants.
  We must not forget the attacks of September 11, 2001, and September 
11, 2012, in the global war on terrorism.
  This report does not include the administration's request for 
military retirees to pay more for health care. Congress established the 
Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission, and we 
need to be informed of their analysis before proceeding with changes 
impacting military families.
  In conclusion, I want to thank Ranking Member Susan Davis and her 
staff for their input in this process. We were joined by an active, 
informed, and dedicated group of subcommittee members supported by a 
professional staff in the tradition of the late John Chapla.
  I urge my colleagues to support this legislation.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield 2 minutes to the 
gentleman from North Carolina (Mr. McIntyre), the ranking member on the 
Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee.
  Mr. McINTYRE. Mr. Chairman, the Seapower and Projection Forces 
portion of this bill continues this subcommittee's tradition of strong 
bipartisan support for our men and women in uniform. I would like to 
thank Subcommittee Chairman Forbes for working together in such an open 
and bipartisan manner.
  This is a good bill. This is an extremely challenging time, we know, 
for the Department of Defense, given the fiscal constraints that it is 
being required to operate under.
  With this bill, the Armed Services Committee has attempted to strike 
the difficult balance of providing for the current force while also 
looking forward to the requirements of the future force.

  I am pleased in particular this bill includes provisions that restore 
funding for the refueling and complex overhaul of the USS George 
Washington, which is the first step needed to ensure we maintain the 
requirement of 11 aircraft carriers. This bill also authorizes two 
Virginia class submarines, two Arleigh Burke destroyers, and an 
additional 96 Tomahawk missiles.
  This bill creates a national sea-based deterrence fund that is 
designed to provide the Navy with some flexibility when it begins 
construction of the Ohio class replacement submarine.
  With this being my last defense bill before retiring at the end of 
this term, I want to thank my good friend Randy Forbes for his 
leadership as chairman of the subcommittee and his friendship through 
the years.
  I also want to thank my friend and my classmate, Adam Smith, for his 
great leadership, and our gracious chairman, Buck McKeon, for the 
leadership that he has given our committee overall and for his 
friendship as well. I wish him well on his retirement.
  I am glad that all of these gentleman that I have named and those 
that I have served with on the subcommittee and the full committee have 
together shared that position for making sure we do right by our men 
and women in uniform.
  With that, Mr. Speaker, I support the passage of this defense bill. I 
urge other Members here in the Congress to do the same.
  I pray God's blessings be upon all of those who serve and will 
benefit from this bill.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield 3 minutes to the gentleman from 
Ohio (Mr. Turner), my friend and colleague and a member of the Armed 
Services Committee and chairman of the Tactical Air and Land Forces 
Subcommittee.
  Mr. TURNER. Mr. Chairman, I rise in strong support of H.R. 4435, the 
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015.
  I want to begin by thanking Chairman McKeon and Ranking Member Smith 
for their leadership in this committee and this being truly a 
bipartisan effort.
  This will be Chairman McKeon's last bill. He has not only been a 
leader for our committee and in Congress, but he has been a tremendous 
mentor for so many of us in Congress. His legacy will leave a lasting 
impact not only in legislation affecting the Department of Defense, our 
national security, and our men and women in uniform, but the Members of 
Congress who serve. And certainly, as we look to the future of the 
Armed Services Committee, his legacy will be in his mentoring of the 
other members of the committee.
  I serve as chairman of the Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee 
as well as the cochair of the Military Sexual Assault Prevention 
Caucus. I first want to thank the subcommittee's ranking member, 
Loretta Sanchez from California, for her support in completing the 
markup of this bill.
  The committee's focus has been to support the men and women of the 
Armed Forces and their families, providing them the equipment they need 
and the support that they so deserve. This bill helps to retain defense 
technology superiority, sustains the defense industrial base, and 
maintains effective modernization for our military.
  The committee bill includes additional funding for Abrams Tanks, 
Bradley Fighting Vehicles, Stryker Combat Vehicles, Tactical Wheeled 
Vehicles, body armor, and unmanned aerial systems.
  I believe the committee bill strikes the appropriate balance between 
equipping our military to effectively carry out its mission while also 
providing aggressive oversight to ensure appropriate use of taxpayers' 
dollars.
  The bill again this year takes a significant step in combating the 
issue of sexual assault in the military by incorporating the FAIR 
Military Act of 2014, a bipartisan bill first introduced by myself and 
Representative Niki Tsongas.
  I would like to thank Representative Tsongas, Military Personnel 
Subcommittee Chairman Joe Wilson, and Representative Davis, ranking 
member on the Personnel Subcommittee, for their leadership on this 
issue. I want to thank Chairman McKeon and Ranking Member Smith for 
their leadership that has allowed a bipartisan solution on sexual 
assault.

[[Page H4546]]

  Under this bill, Congress limits the use of the ``good soldier 
defense,'' which allows a defendant to cite unrelated, subjective 
factors during trial, such as military record. It requires commanders 
be assessed on their ability to create a climate where a victim can 
report a crime without fear of retaliation. It ensures that the changes 
and provisions regarding military sexual assault prevention from the 
FY14 defense authorization apply to the military service academies.

                              {time}  2000

  Finally, this bill provides the child custody protections that our 
military men and women deserve.
  I, again, want to thank Chairman McKeon for his help on protecting 
the custody rights of our men and women in uniform. No longer will our 
men and women face deployment while having to worry whether or not they 
have the custody of their children upon return.
  I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support this bill 
and to vote ``yes'' on H.R. 4435.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield 2 minutes to the 
gentlewoman from California (Mrs. Davis), ranking member of the 
Military Personnel Subcommittee.
  Mrs. DAVIS of California. Mr. Chairman, I want to thank Mr. Wilson 
and the committee staff for working in a bipartisan manner to develop 
this bill.
  The Buck McKeon NDAA continues the committee's focus on sexual 
assault and includes such provisions as requiring the judicial panel to 
assess the use of mental health records by the defense in preliminary 
hearings and to compare this with the civilian use of mental health 
records in criminal proceedings; clarifying that the service academies, 
including the Coast Guard Academy, are subject to the same sexual 
harassment and assault requirements; requiring an inspector general 
review of the separation records of servicemembers who made 
unrestricted reports and determining whether such separation was in 
retaliation for filing said report; requiring performance appraisals of 
a commanding officer to include whether a command climate has been 
established in which allegations of sexual assault are properly managed 
and victims feel free to report; and requiring the Secretary of Defense 
to modify rule 404 of the Military Rules of Evidence to clarify that 
general military character of an accused is not admissible, except in 
cases where the military character of the accused is relevant to the 
offense being charged.
  Mr. Chairman, oversight of sexual assault in the military remains a 
priority of the committee, and we will continue to identify gaps that 
need to be addressed and to enable the Department of Defense to reduce 
these numbers.
  We all want to get to the same place--safe working conditions and a 
harassment-free, sexual assault-free environment for all, and there are 
different views of how to get there; but the bill, as it is now, gives 
us the opportunity to create a military where change can and must 
occur.
  On other personnel matters, our bill does not include the proposed 
legislative changes to the commissary system, housing allowances, and 
the health care modifications requested by the Department of Defense.
  As a result of that, the Department will need to address the $1.5 
billion savings it already took in its fiscal year 2015 budget.
  The Acting CHAIR. The time of the gentlewoman has expired.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. I yield the gentlewoman an additional 30 
seconds.
  Mrs. DAVIS of California. In addition, the restoration of the 1 
percent COLA reduction that was in the budget agreement and restored 
earlier this year left the Department with an additional hole of $500 
million for fiscal year 2015, and these savings will need to be paid 
for from other Department of Defense accounts.
  We must begin that discussion, and I hope that the Military 
Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission will be the start 
of that.
  We know these are difficult times, and difficult decisions need to be 
made to protect and sustain our All-Volunteer Force. It has already 
been stated that ignoring these issues will only lead the Department to 
take significant cuts to our end strength and readiness.
  Despite these concerns though, Mr. Chairman, this bill deserves 
passage.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield 3 minutes to the gentleman from 
Alabama (Mr. Rogers), my friend and colleague, a member of the Armed 
Services Committee and the chairman of the Strategic Forces 
Subcommittee.
  Mr. ROGERS of Alabama. Mr. Chairman, I rise today in support of the 
Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
Year 2015.
  This is an important annual bill, not just because, as you have 
heard, it is the 53rd in a row; it is what is in the bill for our men 
and women in uniform and our national security that counts.
  For example, we fully support the Israeli Cooperative programs, 
including Iron Dome, while also continuing to make progress on U.S.-
based coproduction to strengthen our ally, Israel.
  We include increased resources for our GMD system, which is our only 
homeland missile defense capability.
  We support critical nuclear weapons capabilities, including programs 
the President promised to support as a part of the deal to ratify the 
New START treaty, which are $2 billion short of what was promised with 
several key programs years behind schedule.
  We have initiated in this bill the development of a competitively 
sourced next-generation rocket engine. We will not permit the 
kleptocrats in charge of Russia to hold our national security space 
programs hostage. It is past time that we reinvigorate our rocket motor 
industrial base.
  I am pleased that we also are able to begin a pilot program for a new 
and more commonsense public-private partnership acquisition approach 
for the procurement of commercial satellite communication services.
  We also begin the same public-private partnership process to deal 
with the scores of obsolete, decrepit, nonnuclear facilities in the 
NNSA.
  Mr. Chairman, in taking a look at the amendments that were filed with 
the Rules Committee, it is clear to me that plenty of our colleagues 
are not happy with the tough choices made by the 2-year budget deal 
reached last year, and I join them.
  As we debate these amendments over the next couple of days, I think 
Members will see what those of us on the Armed Services Committee have 
been warning for about a year. There are no more easy choices. We are 
not just cutting into the muscle and bone; we are amputating vital 
limbs.
  I have a warning for every Member of this body. If you think the 
choices that we made were tough this year, wait till next year, when 
sequestration returns.
  I wish to thank the ranking member, the gentleman, and my friend from 
Tennessee, for his outstanding leadership on this subcommittee.
  I wish to thank Chairman McKeon for all he has done over his long 
career for the men and women of our armed services. They may never know 
all he has done for them, but I know. If he had to do it here again, he 
would.
  Mr. Chairman, I thank you for your service, and I look forward to 
working with you to see that the Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon National 
Defense Authorization Act is signed into law later this year.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I now yield 2 minutes to the 
gentlewoman from Massachusetts (Ms. Tsongas), the ranking member of the 
Oversight and Investigation Subcommittee.
  Ms. TSONGAS. Mr. Chairman, I rise in support of H.R. 4435. I want to 
begin by thanking Chairman McKeon for his decades of service in the 
House and for his evenhanded tenure leading the Armed Services 
Committee.

  I also want to thank Ranking Member Smith for his leadership and his 
willingness to address the tough issues that face the United States 
military.
  This year's NDAA takes further necessary steps toward eliminating 
sexual assault in our military ranks. I appreciate the efforts of 
Congressman Wilson and Congresswoman Davis to ensure the inclusion of 
the FAIR Military Act into this bill.
  I would also like to thank my cochair of the Military Sexual Assault 
Prevention Caucus and coauthor of the FAIR Military Act, Congressman 
Mike Turner.
  The fiscal year '15 NDAA ensures servicemembers at all levels are 
held

[[Page H4547]]

to the highest standard, and no more will the so-called ``good soldier 
defense'' allow criminal behavior to go unpunished and prevent justice 
from prevailing.
  This NDAA also makes strides toward addressing the epidemic of 
suicide surrounding our military. It requires the Department of Defense 
to establish a system to track all suicides and attempted suicides for 
Active Duty, Reserves, and Guard servicemembers, as well as military 
family members, so that we can better understand the full scope of this 
tragedy.
  I would also like to highlight the important work that his bill does 
with regard to research and development. In this era of increasingly 
capable enemies and constrained budgets, the DOD must rapidly take 
advantage of technological advancements and deliver these capabilities 
to the field.
  Key provisions in the NDAA will enhance the DOD's ability to recruit 
and retain the Nation's best talent, talent needed to develop the 
resources that are key to keeping servicemembers safe and successful 
around the globe.
  Similarly, I was encouraged that this bill incorporates language 
creating opportunities for investment in critical R&D programs like the 
Combat Feeding program at Natick Soldier Systems. This center finds 
ways to make sure our servicemembers are fed and fed well in some of 
the world's most unforgiving climates.
  Finally, I would like to thank the committee staff who worked closely 
with all of our staffs to include these important provisions in the 
bill.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield 3 minutes to the gentleman from 
Virginia (Mr. Wittman), my friend and colleague, a member of the Armed 
Services Committee and the chairman of the Readiness Subcommittee.
  Mr. WITTMAN. Mr. Chairman, and Ranking Member Smith, thank you so 
much for your leadership in leading this bill to the floor.
  I rise in support of the Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon National Defense 
Authorization Act, which provides funding for ongoing operations in 
Afghanistan and, most critically, for our men and women on the front 
lines, where they continue to fight and die on our behalf each and 
every day.
  No one in this Chamber should forget that most of the decisions we 
make impact them first and foremost. It is our constitutional 
responsibility and should be our highest priority to ensure that they 
have the training and equipment they need to do their missions and come 
home safely. We must be committed to ensuring that our force is always 
ready to respond if a crisis arises.
  This bill attempts to limit operational risk, while also balancing 
present and future readiness requirements with an unrealistic and 
ultimately damaging topline.
  When we legislate to an arbitrary budget number rather than to a 
national security strategy, we inevitably make ill-advised choices that 
impact our capacity and capability to respond to global threats, such 
as the crisis in Ukraine, an emboldened and increasingly aggressive 
Russia, an increasingly aggressive China, and growing tensions in the 
Asia Pacific.
  If circumstances demand that we call up our forces to respond at this 
point in time, our military options would be limited.
  That is why I strongly oppose BRAC at this time. We just don't have 
the money to fund it, and we have higher priorities that directly 
impact the safety of our troops, and every effort and every dollar must 
be focused on them.
  This means funding the Marine Corps Air-Ground Task Forces, or 
MAGTAFs, in SOUTHCOM and CENTCOM, which are needed to secure embassy 
and military installations across the globe, a requirement made clear 
after the terrorist attack at Benghazi; funding flying hour programs, 
training, and depot maintenance across the services; ensuring robust 
steaming days critical to fleet training; and restoring CVN-73 funding 
to retain its viability as a fleet asset.
  These fixes, of course, don't alleviate my concerns about readiness 
shortfalls or risk to our warfighters. We here in Washington need to do 
all we can to decrease such risks.
  We ask a lot of our men and women who serve. We must not ask them to 
go into a fight without the training and equipment they need to 
succeed.
  When I took my oath of office to serve in Congress, I swore that I 
would abide by the principles laid out in the Constitution to ensure a 
robust national defense. While I believe this bill reflects that 
commitment, we cannot lose sight of the fact that FY16 is ominously 
looming, and sequestration remains the law of the land.
  The short-term and often shortsighted choices we have been forced to 
make will only exacerbate our readiness levels.
  We must continue to focus on restoring the readiness lost as a result 
of sequestration, but the fact remains that the national security 
requirements, as outlined in the defense strategy, far exceed the 
budget.
  I remain deeply concerned about the overall readiness of our force, 
not just the men and women that are fighting in Afghanistan, but those 
stationed around the globe. We must ensure they are properly trained, 
equipped, and prepared to meet the challenges on the horizon with 
overwhelming strength and superiority.
  It is time to fix sequestration and start budgeting to meet our 
defense strategy, not a senseless and arbitrary budget number.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield 2 minutes to the 
gentleman from California (Mr. Garamendi), a member of the committee.
  Mr. GARAMENDI. Mr. Chairman, congratulations to the chair of the 
committee and the ranking member for putting together a unanimous 
bipartisan bill. There is much to say in this bill that is good, and I 
would like to say about two things. One, the ISR capabilities of the 
military, particularly the Air Force, are maintained in this bill. The 
U-2 and the Global Hawk will continue to operate and provide critical 
intelligence to our military, operating now in the Sahel of Africa, 
chasing off Boko Haram.
  This bill also provides us with the continuability to get to where we 
need to go. The KC-10 will remain in the force for the foreseeable 
future, until it is fully replaced by the KC-46s.
  All of this is good. You need to know what is going on around the 
world, and you need to be able to get there, and this bill provides for 
that.
  However, there are issues in this bill that we need to spend some 
time working on. It has been some 20 years since we have taken a hard 
look at the nuclear triad, an extraordinarily expensive and 
extraordinarily dangerous part of our military apparatus.
  We are talking nuclear weapons here and the triad--the bombers, the 
ICBMs, and the submarines.

                              {time}  2015

  How do they fit? What do we need? How much do we really need to spend 
upon them?
  Also, the nuclear weapons that go with them. The rebuilding of our 
nuclear weapons is a 20- to 30-year process, and we are talking about 
tens of billions of dollars. Too much? Enough? Maybe. Too much? 
Probably.
  We also have to dispose of some 43 tons of unnecessary plutonium. How 
is that going to be done at the Savannah facility? There is money in 
this budget to continue a dead-end process. We ought to take a new look 
at that. And there will be amendments that will be proposed.
  And finally, the big elephant in the room. We are talking about 
Afghanistan. $74 billion in this bill not debated, not discussed. We 
must do that. It is our obligation as Members of the House of 
Representatives and the representatives of the people of the United 
States to talk about what we are going to do in Afghanistan, and that 
needs to be done.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield 3 minutes to the gentleman from 
Nevada, Dr. Heck, my friend and colleague, who is a member of the Armed 
Services Committee and is the chairman of the Oversight and 
Investigations Subcommittee.
  Mr. HECK of Nevada. Mr. Chairman, I rise to thank the committee 
chairman, the gentleman from California, for his years of service to 
the Nation, this body, and for his mentorship, and also to voice my 
strong support for H.R. 4435, the National Defense Authorization Act of 
2014.
  The bill under consideration is the result of an open process that 
truly reflects the bipartisan nature of the

[[Page H4548]]

House Armed Services Committee and the bipartisan support of our 
military men and women.
  Although fiscal realities and constrained resources have forced us to 
make difficult trade-offs, the committee maintained its commitment to 
those currently serving in uniform as well as to our veterans and their 
families.
  In last year's NDAA, Congress established the Military Compensation 
and Retirement Commission to evaluate and analyze potential reforms to 
pay and benefits. This report, expected to be delivered in February of 
2015, will inform the debate on the future of military and retiree 
compensation. As such, I am pleased that this bill rejects the 
Department's request to cut the pay and benefits of our troops, which 
would have included significant reforms to TRICARE and cuts to housing 
and commissary benefits.
  Any attempts to change pay and benefits before Congress receives the 
commission's report are premature and ill-advised, and I applaud the 
committee for rejecting these proposals and for remaining steadfast in 
its support of our servicemembers, our veterans, and their families.
  Mr. Chairman, H.R. 4435 also acknowledges the work that the Armed 
Services Committee has completed over the last year to address some of 
the deficiencies made evident by the tragedy in Benghazi. The 
Department of Defense has determined that being prepared for an 
uncertain, volatile, complex, and ambiguous security environment, 
especially at remote diplomatic outposts, is the new normal that 
confronts our Nation. This bill expresses concern that U.S. Africa 
Command does not have sufficient assigned military forces, including 
specialized military capabilities, which this new normal requires.
  As such, this legislation requires the Secretary of Defense, in 
consultation with the Secretary of State and the Chairman of the Joint 
Chiefs of Staff, to submit a report on how this evolving security 
environment has changed AFRICOM's force posture and force structure 
requirements. This provision will help ensure that AFRICOM receives the 
resources it needs to protect posts in high-risk, high-threat areas and 
the capability to respond to future crises.
  Mr. Chairman, H.R. 4435 is an important bill that strikes the 
appropriate balance between priorities in a fiscally constrained 
environment. I urge my colleagues to support the Howard P. ``Buck'' 
McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield 2 minutes to the 
gentleman from Texas (Mr. Gallego), a member of the committee.
  Mr. GALLEGO. Mr. Chairman, I, too, would like to thank Chairman 
McKeon and Ranking Member Smith for their leadership. I am glad to have 
had the opportunity to work with and learn from each of them, and I 
certainly wish the chairman well in his future endeavors.
  This legislation marks more than 50 years of bipartisan agreements on 
national defense. Not many committees in the U.S. Congress can say 
that. As a new Member, I am proud to be part of that tradition.
  However, the bill only buys us a little time. Unless Congress 
provides relief from sequestration, next year's decisions will be 
exponentially more difficult. Yet we must do everything to be sure that 
our sons and daughters have what they need to be successful and safe, 
both at home and abroad. That means training or weapons or materials or 
supplies or equipment or machinery. Our sons and our daughters deserve 
the very best.
  Texas is extremely proud of its connection to our military. Important 
installations like Fort Bliss, Laughlin Air Force Base, and Joint Base 
San Antonio are core parts of our economy and our communities. Texas is 
home to many of our warfighters--soldiers, sailors, airmen, and 
marines--and both the civilian and military personnel who support them.
  I, too, am proud to support our men and women in uniform. Thus, I 
urge all of my colleagues to support this bill and, like today, work in 
a bipartisan fashion that ends sequestration tomorrow, and from here on 
out, work in that same bipartisan fashion.
  May God's blessings be upon all the men and women in uniform who are 
impacted by this bill and their families.
  I want to thank Chairman McKeon and Ranking Member Smith. It was a 
pleasure working with them both on this bill.
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Chairman, I yield 1 minute to the gentlelady from 
Indiana (Mrs. Walorski), my friend and colleague, who is a member of 
the Armed Services Committee.
  Mrs. WALORSKI. Mr. Chairman, we have the strongest and best military 
in the world.
  Thanks to the hard work of Chairman McKeon and Ranking Member Smith, 
this year's defense bill works within budgetary constraints to ensure 
that our military continues to have the best people, the best training, 
and the best hardware. This bill guards against irresponsible cuts to 
pay and benefits. It improves readiness, and it provides our men and 
women in uniform with the vital aircraft, ships, and ground vehicles 
they need to fight and win today's increasingly complex battle space.
  We also included several bipartisan commonsense provisions that build 
on our important work last year to combat military sexual assault.
  We hold Russia accountable for its aggression against Ukraine and its 
treaty violations.
  Finally, we lay the groundwork for a comprehensive defense reform 
effort, including finding ways to stretch the taxpayer dollars for the 
defense of this Nation.
  I urge my colleagues to support this bill.
  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Chairman, I yield myself the balance of 
my time.
  I just want to again thank the chairman for his leadership and thank 
all of the folks who have done so much hard work in pulling this bill 
together.
  I will make two other quick points. One, to sort of reemphasize, we 
have heard a couple of times that this bill makes the tough choices. I 
can't see one at this point. You know, we have sort of dodged and 
bobbed and weaved. Some of that I actually support. Some of it made 
sense.
  One of the issues that we have to wrestle with on the committee is 
how do we preserve the industrial base? When you are talking about 
making submarines or tanks or jet fighters, if you don't keep making 
them, you can't say, well, we are going to shut it down for 3 years and 
then we are going to start making them again, because that workforce is 
gone, the plants are gone. Those decisions do have to be made.
  I just think at this point, on balance, in this instance, every 
single hard choice that the administration laid out on compensation--I 
know health care is difficult. I think that the men and women who serve 
in our military should have the best health care while they are serving 
and after of anyone in this country, and they will. But there is an 
important statistic.
  In 1996, your average servicemember paid 27 percent of the cost of 
his or her health care. This year, that number is 10 percent. Why? 
Because health care costs went through the ceiling, but we didn't raise 
a single penny in costs for anyone serving in the military. Is that 
sustainable?
  They also make cuts in some of the subsidies for the commissaries, 
subsidies for housing. They looked for places where they could save 
some money. Again, no BRAC. Again, the A-10 we keep. The ships we keep. 
I understand those decisions, but they are building up an awful 
bellwether.
  And the final thing I will say is that I will again bring my 
amendment on closing Guantanamo Bay. The one thing we are slowly 
learning is that as we, fortunately, get fewer and fewer inmates in 
Guantanamo, it becomes more and more expensive to maintain what was 
supposed to be a temporary facility. Aside from all the arguments about 
how the international community feels about Guantanamo, arguments that 
President George W. Bush made when he said he supported closing 
Guantanamo, it is the sheer cost of maintaining that prison in such an 
obscure place. So I will again offer that amendment, and again we will 
have a robust debate on it.
  But the one point I want to make on that amendment--we have heard 
people say, well, gosh, we can't release these people in the United 
States. We are not

[[Page H4549]]

going to release them in the United States. We are going to lock them 
up, as we currently lock up over 300 terrorists, countless mass 
murderers, and some of the worst, most violent people this country 
knows. They are locked up in secure facilities. We can do the same with 
the dangerous inmates who remain at Guantanamo. But keeping Guantanamo 
open is not intelligent, both in terms of cost and in terms of our 
standing in the international community.
  With that, I look forward to seeing how many of those 320 amendments 
the Rules Committee is going to throw at us, and I look forward to a 
robust debate starting this evening into the next couple of days.
  I yield back the balance of my time.
  Mr. McKEON. I yield myself the balance of my time.
  Mr. Chairman, this has been a great opportunity for an American to 
serve his community, to be able to come to the Capitol of this great 
land and serve in the House of Representatives. It is something I had 
never, ever contemplated growing up. It is something I never had 
thought about. But it has been a tremendous education and a tremendous 
opportunity to serve. It has been a tremendous opportunity to meet some 
really good people.
  You know, I have heard from the polls that the Congress has a rating 
of like 13 percent. That may be a little high. It may be lower than 
that. I heard somebody say that our rating was so low that it is just 
basically family and staff, and then after we cut the staff's health 
care, that it probably was just down to family. Fortunately, I have a 
large family.
  But I have mentioned to members of this committee--and those who are 
probably watching tonight have seen members of the committee that have 
talked about this bill that we have been working on, and I hope that 
they have felt of their strength, of their commitment, of their desire 
to do the things that their constituents sent them here to do.
  I told members of the committee recently that if people at home could 
sit in on the markup, if they could sit in on some of the discussions 
that members of the committee have had, I think our ratings would 
probably be much higher, because these things that we grapple with 
aren't easy. They are not simple ``yes'' and ``no'' answers to the 
things that we deal with.
  For instance, I know many of us a couple of years ago voted for the 
Budget Control Act, which brought us sequestration. It also kept the 
government open, because that was one of the parts of the vote. If we 
had voted against it, the government would have been shut down. I think 
it was a bad choice that we had to make, but I was assured that 
sequestration would never happen. Well, we found out it happened, and 
it is causing us a lot of problems with our national defense.
  You know, the beauty of being able to serve on this committee is we 
get to serve with men and women who really sacrifice much. The men and 
women and their families sacrifice much to look out for our interests 
both at home and abroad, and I want to thank them.
  I want to thank all of the members of the committee. I want to thank 
all of our staff for the tremendous work that they do. They spent hours 
last night just going through these amendments, and they have been 
there constantly. They are all people of great expertise and great 
understanding of the issues that we face.
  With that, Mr. Chairman, I would like to ask all of my colleagues to 
follow this debate closely and support this bill as we come to final 
passage.
  With that, I yield back the balance of my time.
  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Chair, earlier this year, President 
Obama released his 2015 budget proposal that makes another attempt to 
eliminate the entire A-10 fleet, which is the most effective weapons 
system used to protect our combat forces on the ground. I know how 
effective the A-10s have been in support of our troops because the 
107th Fighter Squadron of the Michigan Air National Guard fly A-10s out 
of Selfridge Air National Guard Base in my district.
  This is not the first time that the Administration has attempted to 
eliminate the A-10s from the inventory. In 2012, the defense budget 
submitted by the Administration also included a proposal to retire 
several A10 units, particularly those flown by the Air Guard, without 
an acceptable alternative to provide the critical ground support 
mission. That proposal was beaten back by those of us who realize the 
value of the Warthog and, more importantly, by those who rely on its 
protection.
  Two weeks ago, when testifying before the Senate Armed Services 
Committee, U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno told members 
of the committee that our ground troops ``believe'' in the A-10 
``Warthog'' and have confidence in its ability, above any other 
aircraft, to protect them in combat.
  Throughout this debate, Members of the Senate and the House have 
reiterated their opposition to the proposed divestment by highlighting 
the cost efficiency of the A-10, which costs an estimated $17,000 per 
hour to operate compared to one of its proposed replacements, the B-1, 
which costs $54,000 per hour to fly, and most importantly, the support 
of those engaged in combat on the ground.
  I am very pleased that during the House Armed Services Committee 
markup of the bill we are considering today, a bipartisan majority of 
that committee reaffirmed the importance of these aircraft with the 
adoption of an amendment that will preserve the fleet through 2015.
  Our unwavering support for the A-10 is not based on a perceived 
reluctance to cut anything military, it is based on facts, the cost 
effective nature of these aircraft and the strong support of our 
soldiers who depend on the close air support provided by the Warthog.
  I hear it time and time again from our troops who have served in 
combat in defense of freedom as well as those that operate A-10s out of 
Selfridge. They all agree that it is the most dependable aircraft. They 
use words like ``proven, effective and reliable'' to describe it. They 
say that it is the only weapon system that can do what it does, and 
what it does, is protect them in combat.
  Our troops put their lives in harm's way for our liberty, and we need 
to make sure we do everything possible to protect them in battle. I am 
glad that today a bi-partisan majority in the House agreed with me and 
so many across this nation about the importance of the A-10 to our 
national defense. It is my firm hope that the Senate will join us and 
pass similar protections as this process moves forward.

     SEC. 352. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON ACCESS TO TRAINING RANGES 
                   WITHIN UNITED STATES PACIFIC COMMAND AREA OF 
                   RESPONSIBILITY.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) Reliable access to military training ranges is an 
     essential component of military readiness.
       (2) The training opportunities provided by military 
     training ranges are critical to maintaining the technical and 
     operational superiority of the Armed Forces.
       (3) The 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review states that the 
     operational readiness of the Armed Forces hinges on unimpeded 
     access to land, air, and sea training and test space.
       (4) The 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review states that United 
     States forces in the Asia-Pacific region ``will resume 
     regular bilateral and multilateral training exercises, pursue 
     increased training opportunities to improve capabilities and 
     capacity of partner nations, as well as support humanitarian, 
     disaster relief, counterterrorism, and other operations that 
     contribute to the stability of the region''.
       (5) A number of critical military training ranges, 
     including the Pohakuloa Training Center in Hawaii, are 
     located within the United States Pacific Command area of 
     responsibility providing units from all the military 
     services, as well as allied and partner militaries with 
     realistic joint and combined arms training opportunities.
       (6) Due to the ``tyranny of distance'' in the Asia-Pacific 
     region, there are significant challenges in transporting 
     equipment and personnel to the various military training 
     ranges within the United States Pacific Command area of 
     responsibility.
       (7) The Department of Defense continues a number of efforts 
     aimed at preserving military training ranges, while also 
     minimizing the environmental effects of training activities.
       (8) The Department of Defense has a variety of authorities 
     that may be used to mitigate encroachment on military testing 
     and training missions.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--In light of the findings specified 
     in subsection (a), it is the sense of Congress that the 
     Secretary of Defense should--
       (1) ensure that members of the Armed Forces continue to 
     have reliable access to military training ranges;
       (2) optimize the use of multilateral, joint training 
     facilities overseas in order to increase readiness and 
     interoperability with allies and partners of the United 
     States;
       (3) utilize a full range of assets, including both air- and 
     sea-based assets, including inactive Joint High Speed 
     Vessels, to improve accessibility to military training areas 
     within the United States Pacific Command area of 
     responsibility;
       (4) provide stable budget authority for long-term 
     investments in range and test center infrastructure to lower 
     the cost of access to the ranges and training centers;
       (5) take appropriate action to identify and leverage 
     existing authorities and programs, as well as work with State 
     and municipalities to leverage their authorities, to mitigate 
     encroachment or other challenges that have the potential to 
     impact future access or operations on military training 
     ranges;
       (6) maximize the use of the United States Pacific Command 
     training ranges, including Pohakuloa Training Center in 
     Hawaii, by the military departments and increase the use of 
     such training ranges for bilateral and multilateral exercises 
     with regional allies and partners; and
       (7) take appropriate action to leverage existing 
     authorities and programs, as well as work with local 
     governments to leverage their authorities, to address any 
     challenges that have the potential to impede future access to 
     or operations on military training ranges.

     brand products with private-label products.

     changes.

     savings to patron usage and accompanying sales, both on a

     commissary system on industry support; such as vendor 
     stocking, promotions, discounts, and merchandising activities

       (6) The ability of the current commissary management and 
     information technology systems to accommodate changes to the 
     existing pricing and management structure.
       (7) The product category management systems and expertise 
     of the Defense Commissary Agency.
       (8) The impact of changes to the operation of the defense 
     commissary system on military exchanges and other morale, 
     welfare, and recreation programs for members of the Armed 
     Forces.
       (9) The identification of management and legislative 
     changes that would be required in connection with changes to 
     the defense commissary system.

     security of the United States.
       (2) Over the past decade, a ``balloon effect'' has pushed 
     increased violence and instability into Central America and 
     Mexico from South America.
       (3) Drug cartels and transnational criminal organizations 
     have spread throughout the region, causing instability and 
     lack of rule of law in many nations.
       (4) Illicit networks are used in a variety of illegal 
     activities including the movement of narcotics, humans, 
     weapons, and money.
       (5) According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and 
     Crime, Honduras has the highest murder rate in the world with 
     92 murders per 100,000 people.
       (6) Currently, Mexico is working to reduce violence created 
     by transnational criminal organizations and address issues 
     spurred by the emergence of internal self defense groups.
       (7) United States Northern Command and United States 
     Southern Command lead the efforts of the Department of 
     Defense in combating illicit networking in Mexico and Central 
     America.
       (8) To combat these destabilizing threats, through a 
     variety of authorities, the Department of Defense advises, 
     trains, educates, and equips vetted troops in Mexico and many 
     of the nations of Central America to build their militaries 
     and police forces, with an emphasis on human rights and 
     building partnership capacity.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the Department of Defense should continue to focus on 
     combating illicit networking routes in Mexico and Central 
     America;
       (2) United States Northern Command and United States 
     Southern Command should continue to work together to combat 
     the transnational nature of these threats; and
       (3) the Department of Defense should increase its maritime, 
     aerial and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance 
     assets in the region in order to reduce the amount of illicit 
     networking flowing into the United States.

     SEC. 1025. SENSE OF CONGRESS RECOGNIZING THE ANNIVERSARY OF 
                   THE SINKING OF U.S.S. THRESHER.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) U.S.S. Thresher was first launched at Portsmouth Naval 
     Shipyard on July 9, 1960.
       (2) U.S.S. Thresher departed Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for 
     her final voyage on April 9, 1963, with a crew of 16 
     officers, 96 sailors, and 17 civilians.
       (3) The mix of that crew reflects the unity of the naval 
     submarine service, military and civilian, in the protection 
     of the United States.
       (4) At approximately 7:47 a.m. on April 10, 1963, while in 
     communication with the surface ship U.S.S. Skylark, and 
     approximately 220 miles off the coast of New England, U.S.S. 
     Thresher began her final descent.
       (5) U.S.S. Thresher was declared lost with all hands on 
     April 10, 1963.
       (6) In response to the loss of U.S.S. Thresher, the United 
     States Navy instituted new regulations to ensure the health 
     of the submariners and the safety of the submarines of the 
     United States.
       (7) Those regulations led to the establishment of the 
     Submarine Safety and Quality Assurance program (SUBSAFE), now 
     one of the most comprehensive military safety programs in the 
     world.
       (8) SUBSAFE has kept the submariners of the United States 
     safe at sea ever since as the strongest, safest submarine 
     force in history.
       (9) Since the establishment of SUBSAFE, no SUBSAFE-
     certified submarine has been lost at sea, which is a legacy 
     owed to the brave individuals who perished aboard U.S.S. 
     Thresher.
       (10) From the loss of U.S.S. Thresher, there arose in the 
     institutions of higher education in the United States the 
     ocean engineering curricula that enables the preeminence of 
     the United States in submarine warfare.
       (11) The crew of U.S.S. Thresher demonstrated the ``last 
     full measure of devotion'' in service to the United States, 
     and this devotion characterizes the sacrifices of all 
     submariners, past and present.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--Congress--
       (1) recognizes the 51st anniversary of the sinking of 
     U.S.S. Thresher;
       (2) remembers with profound sorrow the loss of U.S.S. 
     Thresher and her gallant crew of sailors and civilians on 
     April 10, 1963; and
       (3) expresses its deepest gratitude to all submariners on 
     ``eternal patrol'', who are forever bound together by 
     dedicated and honorable service to the United States of 
     America.

     ship.

     Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 (Public Law 113-76),

       (1) Compromises of classified information cause 
     indiscriminate and long-lasting damage to United States 
     national security and often have a direct impact on the

     national security of the United States and placing the lives 
     of United States personnel at extreme risk. The majority of 
     the information compromised relates to the capabilities, 
     operations, tactics, techniques, and procedures of the Armed 
     Forces of the United States, and is the single greatest 
     quantitative compromise in the history of the United States.
       (5) The Department of Defense is taking steps to mitigate 
     the harm caused by these leaks.
       (6) Congress must be kept apprised of the progress of the

     and budget decisions, and the review of war plans.
       (2) Recommendations on improvements to such capability as 
     required, including changes to processes or organizations 
     that may be necessary

                   COMMITMENT TO OPERATION RESOLUTE SUPPORT IN 
                   AFGHANISTAN.

       It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the United States continues to have vital national 
     security interests in ensuring that Afghanistan remains a 
     stable, sovereign country and that groups like Al Qaeda, the 
     Haqqani Network, and the Quetta Shura Taliban are not able to 
     use Afghanistan as a safe haven from which to launch attacks;
       (2) the United States should have a residual presence in 
     Afghanistan to train, advise, and assist the ANSF, conduct 
     counterterrorism operations, and support force protection 
     requirements in order to maintain the gains achieved in 
     Afghanistan;
       (3) it is in the interests of both the United States and 
     Afghanistan to sign the Bilateral Security Agreement as soon 
     as practicable after the new President of Afghanistan is 
     sworn in;
       (4) the United States should provide financial, advisory, 
     and other necessary support to the ANSF, at the authorized 
     end-strength of 352,000 personnel, through 2018;
       (5) the train, advise, and assist mission, following the 
     end of the NATO mission on December 31, 2014, should be able 
     to assist the ANSF in all parts of Afghanistan;
       (6) uncertainty with the signing of the Bilateral Security 
     Agreement with Afghanistan is threatening the gains achieved 
     by the United States and coalition forces and the United 
     States' enduring vital national security interests in 
     Afghanistan and the region;
       (7) the President should announce the United States 
     residual presence for Operation Resolute Support to reassure 
     the people of Afghanistan and to provide a tangible statement 
     of support for the future of Afghanistan;
       (8) the United States should aggressively work with NATO 
     and the Government of Afghanistan to achieve a status of 
     forces agreement for NATO forces in support of the post-2014 
     mission; and
       (9) NATO member countries pledged their support and long-
     term commitment to Afghanistan at the Lisbon, Chicago, and 
     Tokyo conferences and should honor their commitments to 
     Afghanistan and the ANSF.

     SEC. 1225. REPORT ON NON-COMPLIANCE BY THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION 
                   OF ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE INF TREATY.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       (1) the Russian Federation is in material breach of its 
     obligations under the Treaty Between the United States of 
     America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the 
     Elimination of Their Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range 
     Missiles, commonly referred to as the Intermediate-Range 
     Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, signed at Washington December 8, 
     1987, and entered into force June 1, 1988; and
       (2) such behavior poses a threat to the United States, its 
     deployed forces, and its allies.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the President should hold the Russian Federation 
     accountable for being in material breach of its obligations 
     under the INF Treaty;
       (2) the President should demand the Russian Federation 
     completely and verifiably eliminate the military systems that 
     constitute the material breach of its obligations under the 
     INF Treaty;
       (3) the President should seriously consider not engaging in 
     further reductions of United States nuclear forces generally 
     and should seriously consider not engaging in nuclear arms 
     reduction negotiations with the Russian Federation 
     specifically until such complete and verifiable elimination 
     of the military systems has occurred; and
       (4) the President, in consultation with United States 
     allies, should consider whether it is in the national 
     security interests of the United States to unilaterally 
     remain a party to the INF Treaty if the Russian Federation is 
     still in material breach of the INF Treaty beginning one year 
     after the date of the enactment of this Act.
       (c) Report.--Not later than 90 days after the date of the 
     enactment of this Act, and every 90 days thereafter, the 
     President shall submit to the appropriate congressional 
     committees an unclassified report that includes the 
     following:
       (1) The status of the President's efforts, in cooperation 
     with United States allies, to hold the Russian Federation 
     accountable for being in material breach of its obligations 
     under the INF Treaty and obtain the complete and verifiable 
     elimination of its military systems that constitute the 
     material breach of its obligations under the INF Treaty.
       (2) The President's assessment as to whether it remains in 
     the national security interests of the United States to 
     remain a party to the INF Treaty, and other related treaties 
     and agreements, while the Russian Federation is in material 
     breach of its obligations under the INF Treaty.
       (d) Appropriate Congressional Committees.--In this section, 
     the term ``appropriate congressional committees'' means--
       (1) the congressional defense committees;
       (2) the Committee on Foreign Relations and the Select 
     Committee on Intelligence of the Senate; and
       (3) the Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Permanent 
     Select Committee on Intelligence of the House of 
     Representatives.

     SEC. 1226. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING RUSSIAN AGGRESSION 
                   TOWARD UKRAINE.

       It is the sense of the Congress that--
       (1) the continuing and long-standing pattern and practice 
     by the Government of the Russian Federation of physical, 
     diplomatic, and economic aggression toward neighboring 
     countries is clearly intended to exert undue influence on the 
     free will of sovereign nations and peoples to determine their 
     own future;
       (2) the Russian military build-up and aggressive posture on 
     the eastern border of Ukraine represent a deliberate intent 
     to intimidate Ukraine and to force its citizens to submit to 
     Russian control;
       (3) the Russian Federation should immediately cease all 
     improper and illegal activities in Ukraine;
       (4) the 1994 Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances, 
     which was executed jointly with the Russian Federation, 
     Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, represents a commitment to 
     respect the independence, sovereignty, and territorial 
     integrity and borders of Ukraine, and Russian actions clearly 
     violate the commitment made by the Russian Federation in that 
     memorandum;
       (5) the security cooperation with the Ukrainian military by 
     the United States military is an important opportunity to 
     support the continued professionalization of the Ukrainian 
     military;
       (6) an enhanced military presence and readiness posture of 
     the United States military in Europe is key to deterring 
     further Russian aggression and assuring allies and partners; 
     and
       (7) the treaty commitments under Article 5 of the North 
     Atlantic Treaty signed at Washington, April 4, 1949, and 
     entered into force August 24, 1949, are important and a 
     cornerstone to international security.

     Korea has served as an anchor for stability, security, and 
     prosperity on the Korean Peninsula, in the Asia-Pacific 
     region, and around the world;
       (2) the United States and Republic of Korea continue to 
     strengthen and adapt the alliance to serve as a linchpin of 
     peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, recognizing 
     the shared values of democracy, human rights, and the rule of 
     law as the foundations of the alliance;
       (3) the United States and Republic of Korea share deep 
     concerns that North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missiles 
     programs and its repeated provocations pose grave threats to 
     peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and Northeast 
     Asia and recognize that both nations are determined to 
     achieve the peaceful denuclearization of North Korea, and 
     remain fully committed to continuing close cooperation on the 
     full range of issues related to North Korea;
       (4) the United States supports the vision of a Korean 
     Peninsula free of nuclear weapons, free from the fear of war, 
     and peacefully reunited on the basis of democratic and free 
     market principles, as articulated in President Park's Dresden 
     address;
       (5) the United States and Republic of Korea are 
     strengthening the combined defense posture on the Korean 
     Peninsula;
       (6) the United States and Republic of Korea have decided 
     that due to the evolving security environment in the region, 
     including the enduring North Korean nuclear and missile 
     threat, the current timeline to the transition of wartime 
     operational control (OPCON) to a Republic of Korea-led 
     defense in 2015 can be reconsidered; and
       (7) the United States welcomes the Republic of Korea's 
     ratification of a new five-year Special Measures Agreement, 
     which establishes the framework for Republic of Korea 
     contributions to offset the costs associated with the 
     stationing of United States Forces Korea on the Korean 
     Peninsula.

     Organization alliance.

     Foreign Relations of the Senate; and
       (B) the Committee on Armed Services and the Committee on 
     Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives.

     SEC. 1247. REQUIREMENT OF DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE TO CONTINUE 
                   IMPLEMENTATION OF UNITED STATES STRATEGY TO 
                   PREVENT AND RESPOND TO GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE 
                   GLOBALLY AND PARTICIPATION IN INTERAGENCY 
                   WORKING GROUP.

       (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the most dangerous places to be a woman are some of the 
     most unstable and violent regions in the world and gender-
     based violence will impact one in three women worldwide and 
     this in turn has a direct impact on United States national 
     security, the stability of nations, the rule of law, 
     democracy, and peace-building processes;
       (2) combating violence against women and girls through the 
     implementation and integration of gender-based violence 
     prevention and response mechanisms throughout United States 
     overseas operations is a critical step toward promoting 
     regional and global stability and achieving sustainable peace 
     and security;
       (3) under the Joint Explanatory Statement of the Committee 
     of Conference accompanying the Department of State, Foreign 
     Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2012 
     (H.R. 2055, One Hundred Twelfth Congress), the Secretary of 
     State and the Administrator of the United States Agency for 
     International Development were directed in the matter 
     relating to section 7061 to submit to Congress a multi-year 
     strategy to prevent and respond to violence against women and 
     girls in countries where it is common through achievable and 
     sustainable goals, benchmarks for measuring progress, and 
     expected results, including through regular engagement with 
     men and boys as community leaders and advocates in ending 
     such violence;
       (4) Executive Order 13623 of August 10, 2012 (77 Fed. Reg. 
     49345) established the United States Strategy to Prevent and 
     Respond to Gender-based Violence Globally (in this section 
     referred to as the ``Strategy''), the first such strategy 
     submitted pursuant to the matter relating to section 7061 
     under the Joint Explanatory Statement of the Committee of 
     Conference accompanying the Department of State, Foreign 
     Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2012;
       (5) Executive Order 13623 required the Department of 
     Defense to participate in an Interagency Working Group co-
     chaired by the Department of State and the United States 
     Agency for International Development to implement the 
     Strategy; and
       (6) since the authority for the Strategy was established 
     initially in the matter relating to section 7061 under the 
     Joint Explanatory Statement of the Committee of Conference 
     accompanying the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and 
     Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2012, it is important 
     for Congress to maintain its appropriate oversight over the 
     implementation of the Strategy.
       (b) Briefings Required.--
       (1) In general.--Not later than 180 days after the date of 
     the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense shall 
     brief the appropriate congressional committees on efforts of 
     the Department of Defense relating to participation in the 
     Interagency Working Group to implement the Strategy.
       (2) Matters to be included.--As part of the briefings, the 
     Secretary shall describe specifically efforts of the 
     Department of Defense in the Interagency Working Group to 
     implement international violence against women and girls 
     prevention and response strategies, funding allocations, 
     programming, and associated outcomes.
       (3) Appropriate congressional committees defined.--In this 
     subsection, the term ``appropriate congressional committees'' 
     means--
       (A) the Committee on Armed Services and the Committee on 
     Foreign Relations of the Senate; and
       (B) the Committee on Armed Services and the Committee on 
     Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives.
       (c) Requirement to Continue Implementation of Strategy and 
     Participation in Interagency Working Group.--The Secretary of 
     Defense shall ensure that the Department of Defense--
       (1) during the current period of the Strategy, continues to 
     implement the Strategy as appropriate by reason of the role 
     of the Department of Defense in the Interagency Working 
     Group; and
       (2) continues to participate in interagency collaborative 
     efforts to prevent and respond to violence against women and 
     girls.

     SEC. 1248. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE SITUATIONAL AWARENESS OF 
                   ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL ACTIVITY.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) There is a lack of situational awareness within the 
     Department of Defense concerning how state and non-state 
     adversaries and potential adversaries are interwoven into the 
     international financial and trading systems via legal and 
     licit activities and use such market activities to fund and 
     equip themselves and advance their interests.
       (2) There is a lack of capability within the Department of 
     Defense to formulate policy options within the interagency 
     process, or for consideration within the Department, 
     concerning whether state and non-state adversaries and 
     potential adversaries have key vulnerabilities associated 
     with their positioning within the global economic and 
     financial systems.
       (3) The Department of Defense would benefit from having 
     enhanced situational awareness regarding the commercial and 
     strategic interactions of state and non-state adversaries and 
     potential adversaries within the global economic and 
     financial systems and integrating relevant findings into 
     defense policy options, deterrence strategy, planning and 
     preparedness.
       (4) The state-owned enterprises and sovereign wealth funds 
     of adversaries and potential adversaries represent, in some 
     cases, strategic tools of their controlling governments and 
     their global operations and therefore warrant increased 
     scrutiny and knowledge.
       (5) Without improved situational awareness of the business 
     transactions and financial activities of state and non-state 
     adversaries and potential adversaries, as well as entities 
     they own and control, current efforts and deterrence 
     strategies will continue to represent an underdeveloped 
     defense requirement that lacks strategic direction.
       (b) Enhanced Situational Awareness Required.--The Secretary 
     of Defense shall take such steps as may be necessary to 
     improve--
       (1) the situational awareness capabilities of the 
     Department of Defense regarding the legal and licit business 
     transactions and global market positioning of adversaries and 
     potential adversaries; and
       (2) the ability of the Department to translate such 
     situational awareness into the intelligence, planning, 
     deterrence, and capabilities and strategies of the 
     Department.

                   THE PATRIOTIC UNION OF KURDISTAN UNDER THE

       (a) Discretion to Exclude Kurdistan Democratic Party and 
     Patriotic Union of Kurdistan From Treatment as Terrorist 
     Organizations.--The Secretary of State, after consultation 
     with the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Attorney 
     General, or the Secretary of Homeland Security, after 
     consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney 
     General, may exclude the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the

     organization in section 212(a)(3)(B)(vi) of the Immigration 
     and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1182(a)(3)(B)(vi)) for the 
     limited purpose of issuing a temporary visa to a member of 
     the Kurdistan Democratic Party or the Patriotic Union of 
     Kurdistan.
       (b) Prohibition on Judicial Review.--Notwithstanding any 
     other provision of law (whether statutory or nonstatutory), 
     section 242 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 
     1252), sections 1361 and 1651 of title 28, United States 
     Code, section 2241 of such title, and any other habeas corpus 
     provision of law, no court shall have jurisdiction to review 
     any determination made pursuant to subsection (a).

     or otherwise made available for fiscal year 2015 for the

       (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--

     assigned military forces; intelligence, surveillance, and 
     reconnaissance assets; crisis response forces; and enablers 
     to support the crisis response forces to meet the ``New 
     Normal'' and general mission requirements in the area of 
     responsibility of the United States Africa Command;
       (2) with the current force posture and structure of the 
     United States Africa Command, the United States is accepting 
     a high level of risk in defending United States posts that 
     are ``high risk, high threat'' posts;
       (3) the United States should posture forces forward and 
     achieve the associated basing and access agreements to 
     support such forces across the Continent of Africa in order 
     to meet the ``New Normal'' and general mission requirements 
     in the area of responsibility of the United States Africa 
     Command;
       (4) the Department of Defense should consider reassigning 
     to the United States Africa Command enabler assets currently 
     assigned to, and shared with, the United States European 
     Command; and
       (5) the United States Africa Command requires more 
     intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance assets to meet 
     the ``New Normal'' and general mission requirements in its 
     area of responsibility.
       (b) Report.--Not later than January 15, 2015, the Secretary

     SEC. 1264. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON UNITED STATES PRESENCE AND 
                   COOPERATION IN THE ARABIAN GULF REGION TO DETER 
                   IRAN.

       It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the United States should maintain a robust forward 
     presence and posture in order to support United States allies 
     and partners in the Arabian Gulf region, including Gulf 
     Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and Israel, and to deter 
     Iran;
       (2) the United States should seek ways to support the 
     security posture of GCC countries in the Arabian Gulf region 
     to deter Iran;
       (3) key strategic United States bases in the Arabian Gulf 
     region that are used to deter Iran and would be used for any 
     military operations in the Arabian Gulf region are entirely 
     financed by funds for overseas contingency operations which 
     is an unsustainable approach;
       (4) such key strategic United States bases in the Arabian 
     Gulf region should be funded through the base budget of the 
     Department of Defense;
       (5) the United States does not have status of forces 
     agreements and defense agreements with key GCC allies, which 
     would support the defense of the Arabian Gulf region and 
     would deter Iran, and the United States should seek to 
     complete these agreements immediately;
       (6) the interim agreement with Iran relating to Iran's 
     nuclear program does not address key aspects of Iran's 
     nuclear program, including the possible military dimensions 
     of Iran's nuclear program;
       (7) a comprehensive agreement with Iran relating to Iran's 
     efforts to develop a nuclear weapons capability should 
     address past and present issues of concern of the United 
     States, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and the 
     United Nations Security Council;
       (8) the United States should continue to put significant 
     pressure on Iran's network of organizations that conduct 
     malign activities in the Arabian Gulf region, and around the 
     globe, even while the United States engages in negotiations 
     with Iran relating to Iran's nuclear program;
       (9) the United States Government should not enter into a 
     contract with any person or entity that is determined to have 
     violated United States sanctions laws with respect to 
     contracting with the Government of Iran and should encourage 
     United States allies, partners, and other countries to 
     maintain the same contracting standard; and
       (10) a comprehensive agreement with Iran relating to Iran's 
     efforts to develop or acquire a nuclear weapons capability 
     should be agreed to by the United States only if--
       (A) Iran ceases the enrichment of uranium;
       (B) Iran has ceased the pursuit, acquisition, and 
     development of, and has verifiably dismantled its nuclear, 
     biological, and chemical weapons and ballistic missiles and 
     ballistic missile launch technology; and
       (C) the Government of Iran has ceased providing support for 
     acts of international terrorism.

     SEC. 1265. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON MODERNIZATION OF DEFENSE 
                   CAPABILITIES OF POLAND.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) The efforts of Poland to modernize its defense 
     capabilities and restructure its armed forces have the 
     potential not only to enhance the national security of Poland 
     but also to strengthen the North Atlantic Treaty Organization 
     (NATO).
       (2) The main priority of Poland with respect to such 
     efforts is to procure anti-aircraft and missile defense 
     systems.
       (3) At a time when most NATO allies are cutting defense 
     spending, Poland has maintained a steady defense budget and 
     is making significant investment in procurement of new 
     defense systems.
       (4) The United States should recognize the efforts of 
     Poland to modernize its defense capabilities and restructure 
     its armed forces and promote such efforts as a positive 
     example for other NATO allies to follow.
       (5) The United States has enjoyed a close cultural, 
     economic, political, and military relationship with Poland 
     for many years and the efforts of Poland to modernize its 
     defense capabilities and restructure its armed forces provide 
     opportunities for the two countries to work together even 
     more closely.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the President should seek to work with Poland to ensure 
     that, as part of the efforts of Poland to modernize its 
     defense capabilities and restructure its armed forces--
       (A) Poland, to the maximum extent practicable, procures 
     defense systems that are interoperable with NATO defense 
     systems and will help fill critical NATO shortfalls; and
       (B) Poland, to the maximum extent practicable and to the 
     extent not inconsistent with the provisions of subparagraph 
     (A), procures United States defense systems that--
       (i) will strengthen the bilateral, strategic partnership 
     between the two countries;
       (ii) will provide Poland with proven defense systems 
     capabilities; and
       (iii) promote deeper and closer bilateral cooperation 
     between the two countries; and
       (2) the United States stands ready to assist Poland to 
     achieve its goals to modernize its defense capabilities and 
     restructure its armed forces.

     driven, cyclical, and not in the long-term strategic 
     interests of the United States.

     each intercontinental ballistic missile silo that contains a

     value of retaining certain excess infrastructure to support 
     surge or reversibility requirements.

     realignment of military installations to reduce excess 
     infrastructure.
       (c) Special Considerations.--In determining the level of 
     necessary versus excess infrastructure under subsection (b), 
     the Secretary of Defense shall consider the following:
       (1) The anticipated continuing need for and availability of 
     military installations outside the United States, taking into 
     account current restrictions on the use of military 
     installations outside the United States and the potential for 
     future prohibitions or restrictions on the use of such 
     military installations.

     by more than one branch of the Armed Forces at a military 
     installation or the reorganization or association of two or

     certification under paragraph (1) that the need for an 
     additional round of closures and realignments exists, the 
     Secretary shall include an additional certification that 
     every recommendation for the closure or realignment of 
     military installations in the additional round of closures 
     and realignments will result in annual net savings for each 
     of the military departments within six years after the 
     initiation of the additional round of closures and 
     realignments.
       (e) Comptroller General Evaluation.--
       (1) Evaluation required.--If the certifications are 
     provided under subsection (d), the Comptroller General of the

                   MEMORIAL IN RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) The most reliable statistics regarding the number of 
     members of the Armed Forces who have been awarded the 
     Distinguished Flying Cross indicate that 126,318 members of 
     the Armed Forces received the medal during World War II, 
     approximately 21,000 members received the medal during the 
     Korean conflict, and 21,647 members received the medal during 
     the Vietnam War. Since the end of the Vietnam War, more than 
     203 Armed Forces members have received the medal in times of 
     conflict.
       (2) The National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, 
     Missouri, burned down in 1973, and thus many more recipients 
     of the Distinguished Flying Cross may be undocumented. 
     Currently, the Department of Defense continues to locate and 
     identify members of the Armed Forces who have received the 
     medal and are undocumented.
       (3) The United States currently lacks a national memorial 
     dedicated to the bravery and sacrifice of those members of 
     the Armed Forces who have distinguished themselves by heroic 
     deeds performed in aerial flight.
       (4) An appropriate memorial to current and former members 
     of the Armed Forces is under construction at March Field Air 
     Museum in Riverside, California.
       (5) This memorial will honor all those members of the Armed 
     Forces who have distinguished themselves in aerial flight, 
     whether documentation of such members who earned the 
     Distinguished Flying Cross exists or not.
       (b) Designation.--The memorial to members of the Armed 
     Forces who have been awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, 
     located at March Field Air Museum in Riverside, California, 
     is hereby designated as the Distinguished Flying Cross 
     National Memorial.
       (c) Effect of Designation.--The national memorial 
     designated by this section is not a unit of the National Park 
     System, and the designation of the national memorial shall 
     not be construed to require or permit Federal funds to be 
     expended for any purpose related to the national memorial.
