       (1) the President should immediately marshal and support a

     the threat posed by the Government of the Russian Federation 
     and to work to prevent interference by that Government and 
     other foreign state actors in United States institutions and 
     democratic processes;
       (2) the President should publicly call for the Government 
     of the Russian Federation to return Crimea to the control of 
     the Government of Ukraine, end its support for separatist 
     violence in eastern Ukraine, end its occupation of and 
     support for separatists on the territory of Georgia and 
     Moldova, and cease enabling the brutal regime of Bashar al-
     Assad in Syria to commit war crimes;
       (3) the President should unequivocally condemn and counter 
     the ongoing interference in United States institutions and 
     democratic processes by the President of the Russian 
     Federation, Vladimir Putin, his government, and affiliates of 
     his government;
       (4) the conclusion of the United States intelligence 
     community and law enforcement agencies and other United 
     States Government officials that the Russian Federation has 
     perpetrated, and continues to perpetrate, such interference, 
     is correct;
       (5) the United States should continue to participate 
     actively as a member of the North Atlantic Treaty 
     Organization by--
       (A) upholding the Organization's core principles of 
     collective defense, democratic rule of law, and peaceful 
     settlement of disputes;
       (B) boosting coordination and deterrence capacity among 
     member countries; and
       (C) supporting accession processes of prospective member 
     countries who meet the obligations of membership.
       (6) Congress reiterates its strong support for the Russia 
     Sanctions Review Act of 2017 (22 U.S.C. 9511), which allows 
     for congressional review of an action to waive the 
     application of sanctions under the provisions of the 
     Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act 
     (Public Law 115-44; 131 Stat. 886) relating to the Russian 
     Federation or a licensing action that significantly alters 
     United States foreign policy with regard to the Russian 
     Federation; and
       (7) sanctions imposed with respect to the Russian 
     Federation have been most effective when developed and 
     coordinated in close consultation with the European Union.

     SEC. 3. STATEMENT OF POLICY ON CRIMEA.

       It is the policy of the Unites States that--
       (1) the United States will never recognize the illegal 
     annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation, similar to 
     the 1940 Welles Declaration in which the United States 
     refused to recognized the Soviet annexation of the Baltic 
     States;
       (2) Crimea is part of the sovereign territory of Ukraine;
       (3) Crimea is part of Ukraine and the United States rejects 
     attempts to change the status, demographics, or political 
     nature of Crimea;
       (4) the United States reaffirms its unwavering support for 
     democracy, human rights, and the rule of law for all 
     individuals in Crimea, including non-Russian ethnic groups 
     and religious minorities;
       (5) the United States condemns all human rights violations 
     against individuals in Crimea, and underscores the 
     culpability of the Government of the Russian Federation for 
     such violations while the territory of Crimea is under 
     illegal Russian occupation;
       (6) the United States, in coordination with the European 
     Union, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and members of 
     the international community, should prioritize efforts to 
     prevent the further consolidation of illegal occupying powers 
     in Crimea, reaffirm unified opposition to the actions of the 
     Russian Federation in Crimea, and secure the human rights of 
     individuals there; and
       (7) the United States welcomes the sanctions that have been 
     imposed and maintained as of the date of the enactment of 
     this Act by the United States and the European Union against 
     persons engaged in furthering the illegal occupation of 
     Crimea by the Russian Federation.

                   PROGRAM.

       (a) Report.--Not later than 60 days after the date of the 
     enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense, in 
     consultation with the Secretary of State, shall submit to the 
     appropriate congressional committees a report with 
     recommendations regarding the need for and suitability of 
     transferring excess defense articles under this section to 
     countries in the NATO alliance, with particular emphasis on 
     the foreign policy benefits as it pertains to those member 
     states currently purchasing defense articles or services from 
     the Russian Federation.
       (b) Period for Review by Congress of Recommendations for 
     EDA Transfer to NATO Members.--During the 30-calendar day 
     period following submission by the Secretary of Defense of 
     the report required under subsection (a), the Committee on 
     Foreign Relations of the Senate and the Committee on Foreign 
     Affairs of the House of Representatives shall, as 
     appropriate, hold hearings and briefings and otherwise obtain 
     information in order to fully review the recommendations 
     included in the report.
       (c) Transfer Authority.--The President is authorized to 
     transfer such excess defense articles in a fiscal year as the 
     Secretary of Defense recommends pursuant to this section to 
     countries for which receipt of such articles was justified 
     pursuant to the annual congressional presentation documents 
     for military assistance programs, or for which receipt of 
     such articles was separately justified to Congress, for such 
     fiscal year.
       (d) Limitations on Transfers.--The President may transfer 
     excess defense articles under this section only if--
       (1) such articles are drawn from existing stocks of the 
     Department of Defense;
       (2) funds available to the Department of Defense for the 
     procurement of defense equipment are not expended in 
     connection with the transfer;
       (3) the President determines that the transfer of such 
     articles will not have an adverse impact on the military 
     readiness of the United States;
       (4) with respect to a proposed transfer of such articles on 
     a grant basis, the President determines that the transfer is 
     preferable to a transfer on a sales basis, after taking into 
     account the potential proceeds from, and likelihood of, such 
     sales, and the comparative foreign policy benefits that may 
     accrue to the United States as the result of a transfer on 
     either a grant or sales basis; and
       (5) the President determines that the transfer of such 
     articles will not have an adverse impact on the national 
     technology and industrial base and, particularly, will not 
     reduce the opportunities of entities in the national 
     technology and industrial base to sell new or used equipment 
     to the countries to which such articles are transferred.
       (e) Terms of Transfers.--
       (1) No cost to recipient country.--Excess defense articles 
     may be transferred under this section without cost to the 
     recipient country.
       (2) Priority.--Notwithstanding any other provision of law, 
     the delivery of excess defense articles under this section to 
     member countries of NATO that still purchase defense goods 
     and services from the Russian Federation and pledge to 
     decrease such purchases shall be given priority to the 
     maximum extent feasible over the delivery of such excess 
     defense articles to other countries.
       (3) Transportation and related costs.--
       (A) In general.--Except as provided in subparagraph (B), 
     funds available to the Department of Defense may not be 
     expended for crating, packing, handling, and transportation 
     of excess defense articles transferred under the authority of 
     this section.
       (B) Exception.--The President may provide for the 
     transportation of excess defense articles without charge to a 
     country for the costs of such transportation if--
       (i) it is determined that it is in the national interest of 
     the United States to do so;
       (ii) the recipient is a NATO member state currently 
     purchasing defense goods and services from the Russian 
     Federation that has pledged to reduce such purchases;
       (iii) the total weight of the transfer does not exceed 
     50,000 pounds; and

              TITLE III--CHEMICAL WEAPONS NONPROLIFERATION

     SEC. 301. SHORT TITLE.

       This title may be cited as the ``Chemical Weapons 
     Nonproliferation Act of 2018''.

     SEC. 302. FINDINGS.

       Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The international norm against the use of chemical 
     weapons has severely eroded since 2012. At least 4 actors 
     between 2012 and the date of the enactment of this Act have 
     used chemical weapons: Syria, North Korea, the Russian 
     Federation, and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in 
     Iraq and Syria.
       (2) On March 4, 2018, the Government of the Russian 
     Federation knowingly used novichok, a lethal chemical agent, 
     in an attempt to kill former Russian military intelligence 
     officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, in Salisbury, 
     United Kingdom.
       (3) On June 27, 2018, the Organisation for the Prohibition 
     of Chemical Weapons (in this title referred to as the 
     ``OPCW''), during its Fourth Special Session of the 
     Conference of the States Parties to the Chemical Weapons 
     Convention, voted favorably in adopting a decision to ``put 
     in place arrangements to identify the perpetrators of the use 
     of chemical weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic by 
     identifying and reporting on all information potentially 
     relevant to the origin of those chemical weapons in those 
     instances in which the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission in Syria 
     determines or has determined that use or likely use occurred, 
     and cases for which the OPCW-UN Joint Investigative Mechanism 
     has not issued a report; and decide[d] also that the 
     Secretariat shall provide regular reports on its 
     investigations to the Council and to the United Nations 
     Secretary-General for their consideration''.
       (4) The Government of the Russian Federation attempted to 
     impede the adoption of the identification mechanism in the 
     Fourth Special Session of the Conference of the States 
     Parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention, and has 
     repeatedly worked to degrade the OPCW's ability to identify 
     chemical weapons users.
       (5) The Government of the Russian Federation has shown 
     itself to be unwilling or incapable of compelling the 
     President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, an ally of the Russian 
     Federation, to stop using chemical weapons against the 
     civilian population in Syria.
       (6) The United States remains steadfast in its commitment 
     to its key ally the United Kingdom, its commitment to the 
     mutual defense of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and 
     its commitment to the Chemical Weapons Convention.
       (7) Thirty-four countries, including the United States, 
     have joined the International Partnership against Impunity 
     for the use of Chemical Weapons, which represents a political 
     commitment by participating countries to hold to account 
     persons responsible for the use of chemical weapons.

     SEC. 303. STATEMENT OF POLICY.

       It shall be the policy of the United States--
       (1) to protect and defend the interests of the United 
     States, allies of the United States, and the international 
     community at large from the continuing threat of chemical 
     weapons and their proliferation;
       (2) to maintain a steadfast commitment to the Chemical 
     Weapons Convention and the OPCW;
       (3) to promote and strengthen the investigative and 
     identification mechanisms of the OPCW through the provision

     Atlantic Treaty Organization, the Organization for Security 
     and Cooperation in Europe, and the European Union;

     bolster efforts to counter malign Russian influence in all 
     its forms; and

     and diplomatic efforts in Europe, including in European Union 
     and NATO countries, to address threats to fundamental human 
     rights and backsliding in rule of law protections, operating 
     space for independent media and civil society, and other

     SEC. 707. ADDRESSING ABUSE AND MISUSE BY THE RUSSIAN 
                   FEDERATION OF INTERPOL RED NOTICES AND RED 
                   DIFFUSIONS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The International Criminal Police Organization (in this 
     section referred to as ``INTERPOL'') works to prevent and 
     fight crime through enhanced cooperation and innovation on 
     police and security matters, including counterterrorism, 
     cybercrime, counternarcotics, and transnational organized 
     crime.
       (2) United States membership and participation in INTERPOL 
     advanced the national security and law enforcement interests 
     of the United States related to combatting terrorism, 
     cybercrime, narcotics, and transnational organized crime.
       (3) Article 2 of INTERPOL's Constitution states that the 
     organization aims ``[t]o ensure and promote the widest 
     possible mutual assistance between all criminal police 
     authorities [. . .] in the spirit of the `Universal 
     Declaration of Human Rights' ''.
       (4) Article 3 of INTERPOL's Constitution states that ``[i]t 
     is strictly forbidden for the Organization to undertake any 
     intervention or activities of a political, military, 
     religious or racial character''.
       (5) Some INTERPOL member countries have used the INTERPOL's 
     processes, including the red notice and red diffusions 
     mechanisms, for activities of a political character.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that 
     the Government of the Russian Federation has abused and 
     misused INTERPOL's red notice and red diffusion mechanisms 
     for overtly political purposes and activities such as 
     intimidating, harassing, and persecuting political opponents.
       (c) Censure of Russian Activity.--The Attorney General, in 
     coordination with the Secretary of Homeland Secretary, shall 
     use the voice and influence of the United States at INTERPOL 
     to censure and sanction the abuse of INTERPOL mechanisms by 
     the Government of the Russian Federation, including the 
     suspension of the ability of the Government of the Russian 
     Federation to use INTERPOL's red notice and red diffusion 
     mechanisms.
       (d) No Denial of Services.--No United States person or 
     foreign person that is the subject of a red notice or red 
     diffusion requested by the Government of the Russian 
     Federation shall be denied access to any United States 
     Government services or programs because the person is the 
     subject of such red notice or red diffusion, including 
     requesting asylum, requesting a visa, or participating in a 
     visa waiver program or the Transportation Security 
     Administration's Trusted Traveler Program.

     SEC. 708. REPORT ON ACCOUNTABILITY FOR WAR CRIMES AND CRIMES 
                   AGAINST HUMANITY BY THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION IN 
                   SYRIA.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) In March 2016, Amnesty International issued a report 
     stating, ``Syrian and Russian forces have been deliberately 
     attacking health facilities in flagrant violation of 
     international humanitarian law. But what is truly egregious 
     is that wiping out hospitals appears to have become part of 
     their military strategy.''.
       (2) On September 21, 2017, Department of State Spokesperson 
     Heather Nauert said, ``The United States is concerned by 
     reports of airstrikes in Idlib province and northern Hama 
     province on September 19 and 20 that killed at least three 
     medical personnel and damaged a number of medical facilities, 
     emergency equipment, and civil defense centers. These attacks 
     fit an all-too-familiar pattern in which medical facilities 
     and personnel--and the civilians they serve--are victims of 
     strikes by the Syrian regime and its Russian allies.''.
       (3) In February 2018, Syrian and Russian airstrikes in 
     rebel-held areas killed 230 civilians and hit at least 9 
     medical facilities. In a statement on February 10, 2018, the 
     office of Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, the United Nations High 
     Commissioner for Human Rights, said the airstrikes ``may, 
     depending on the circumstances, all constitute war crimes''.
       (4) On March 6, 2018, the United Nations Independent 
     International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab 
     Republic noted, ``[I]n one particularly harmful attack on 13 
     November, the Russian Air Force carried out airstrikes on a 
     densely populated civilian area in Atareb (Aleppo), killing 
     at least 84 people and injuring another 150. Using unguided 
     weapons, the attack struck a market, police station, shops, 
     and a restaurant, and may amount to a war crime.''.
       (b) Report Required.--The Secretary of State shall submit 
     to the appropriate congressional committees a report on 
     alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity attributable 
     to the Government of the Russian Federation or paramilitary 
     forces or contractors responsive to the direction of that 
     Government during the operations of that Government in 
     Syria--
       (1) not later than 60 days after the date of the enactment 
     of this Act; and
       (2) not later than 180 days after the date on which the 
     Secretary of State determines that the violence in Syria has 
     ceased.
       (c) Elements.--Each report required by subsection (b) shall 
     include the following:
       (1) A description of alleged war crimes and crimes against 
     humanity described in subsection (b), including--
       (A) any such alleged crimes that may violate the principle 
     of medical neutrality and, if possible, an identification of 
     the individual or individuals who engaged in or organized 
     such crimes; and
       (B) if possible, a description of the conventional and 
     unconventional weapons used for such alleged crimes and the 
     origins of such weapons.
       (2) An assessment of whether such alleged crimes constitute 
     war crimes or crimes against humanity, including genocide.
       (3) A description and assessment by the Office of Global 
     Criminal Justice of the Department of State, the United 
     States Agency for International Development, the Department 
     of Justice, and other appropriate Federal agencies, of 
     programs that the United States Government has undertaken to 
     ensure accountability for such alleged crimes, including 
     programs--
       (A) to train investigators within and outside of Syria on 
     how to document, investigate, develop findings with respect 
     to, and identify and locate alleged perpetrators of, such 
     alleged crimes, including--
       (i) the number of United States Government or contractor 
     personnel currently designated to work full-time on such 
     training; and
       (ii) an identification of the authorities and 
     appropriations being used to support such training; and
       (B) to document, collect, preserve, and protect evidence of 
     such alleged crimes, including support for Syrian, foreign, 
     and international nongovernmental organizations, and other 
     entities, including the International, Impartial and 
     Independent Mechanism to Assist in the Investigation and 
     Prosecution of Persons Responsible for the Most Serious 
     Crimes under International Law Committed in the Syrian Arab 
     Republic since March 2011 and the Independent International 
     Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic of the 
     United Nations.
       (d) Protection of Witnesses and Evidence.--In preparing the 
     report required by subsection (b), the Secretary shall take 
     due care to ensure that the identities of witnesses and 
     physical evidence are not publicly disclosed in a manner that 
     might place such witnesses at risk of harm or encourage the 
     destruction of such evidence by the Government of the Russian 
     Federation or the Government of Syria, violent extremist 
     groups, anti-government forces, or any other combatants or 
     participants in the conflict in Syria.
       (e) Form.--Each report required by subsection (b) may be 
     submitted in unclassified or classified form, but shall 
     include a publicly available annex.
       (f) Appropriate Congressional Committees Defined.--In this 
     section, the term ``appropriate congressional committees''

     SEC. __. REASONABLE PRICE AGREEMENT.

       (a) In General.--If any Federal agency or any non-profit 
     entity using funds appropriated in this Act undertakes 
     Federally funded health care research and development and is 
     to convey or provide a patent for a drug, biologic, or other 
     health care technology developed through such research, such 
     agency or entity shall not make such conveyance or provide 
     such patent until the entity (including a non-profit entity) 
     that will receive such patent first agrees to a reasonable 
     pricing agreement with the Secretary of Health and Human 
     Services (referred to in this section as the ``Secretary'') 
     or the Secretary makes a determination that the public 
     interest is served by a waiver of the reasonable pricing 
     agreement provided in accordance with subsection (c).
       (b) Prohibition of Discrimination.--
       (1) In general.--For purposes of subsection (a), any 
     reasonable pricing formula that is utilized shall not result 
     in discriminatory pricing for the drug, biologic, or other 
     health care technology involved regardless of the number of 
     bidders involved. In carrying out this subparagraph, the 
     Secretary shall ensure that the Federal Government, with 
     respect to the drug, biologic, or other health care 
     technology involved, is charged an amount that is not more 
     than the lowest amount charged to countries in the 
     Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development for 
     the same drug, biologic, or technology, that have the largest 
     gross domestic product with a per capita income that is not 
     less than half the per capita income of the United States.
       (2) Discriminatory pricing.--For the purposes of paragraph 
     (1), a cost based reasonable pricing formula that is utilized 
     shall be considered to result in discriminatory pricing if 
     the contract for sale of the drug, biologic, or other health 
     care technology places a limit on supply, or employs any 
     other measure, that has the effect of--
       (A) providing access to such drug, biologic, or technology 
     on terms or conditions that are less favorable than the terms 
     or conditions provided to a foreign purchaser (other than a 
     charitable or humanitarian organization) of the drug, 
     biologic, or technology; or
       (B) restricting access to the drug, biologic, or technology 
     under this section.
       (c) Waiver.--No waiver shall take effect under subsection 
     (a) before the public is

[[Page S5853]]

     given notice of the proposed waiver and provided a reasonable 
     opportunity to comment on the proposed waiver. A decision to 
     grant a waiver shall set out the Secretary's finding that 
     such a waiver is in the public interest.

  SA 3996. Mr. CARPER submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by 
him to the bill H.R. 6157, making appropriations for the Department of 
Defense for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2019, and for other 
purposes; which was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:

       At the appropriate place in division B, insert the 
     following:
       Sec. __. (a) Beginning on January 1, 2019, a group health 
     plan and a health insurance issuer offering group or 
     individual health insurance coverage shall provide coverage 
     of a single dispensing of contraceptives for a 12-month 
     period, with no deductible, coinsurance, copayment, or other 
     cost-sharing requirement.
       (b) Congress finds as follows:
       (1) Contraception is basic health care for women, and women 
     need access to all birth control methods so that they can use 
     the specific birth control that is right for them.
       (2) Removing barriers to access to birth control so that 
     women can plan, space, and prevent pregnancies is critically 
     important for women's health and economic security, as well 
     as the health of any children they may decide to have in the 
     future. Access to birth control is linked to women's greater 
     educational and professional opportunities and increased 
     lifetime earnings.
       (3) The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public 
     Law 111-148) has removed cost barriers to birth control for 
     over 62,400,000 women, but other non-cost barriers remain, 
     and some women still do not have insurance coverage of birth 
     control.
       (4) A woman's chances of unintended pregnancy increase 
     considerably when barriers prevent her from using birth 
     control consistently and correctly.
       (5) In recent years, States have taken proactive steps to 
     increase women's access to the birth control method of their 
     choice, as follows:
       (A) Several States, including Delaware, Iowa, and Colorado 
     have implemented successful initiatives that include training 
     of providers and consumer education to improve access to the 
     full range of contraceptive methods, resulting in significant 
     reductions in unplanned pregnancy.
       (B) At least 12 States (including California, the District 
     of Columbia, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, 
     Massachusetts, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Vermont, and 
     Washington) have passed laws requiring coverage of all birth 
     control methods approved by the Food and Drug Administration, 
     without out-of-pocket costs.
       (C) At least 12 States (including California, Colorado, the 
     District of Columbia, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, 
     Massachuettes, Maryland, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, and 
     Ohio) have passed laws requiring coverage of 12 months of 
     birth control dispensed at one time.
       (D) At least 7 States (including California, Delaware, 
     Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Oregon) have 
     passed laws requiring coverage of over-the-counter methods of 
     birth control without requiring a prescription.
       (E) In 2018, the Utah State legislature passed a bill 
     requiring the State to apply for

[[Page S5862]]

     a Medicaid family planning eligibility expansion with the 
     Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. When approved, Utah 
     will become the 27th State with such an expansion.

     unplanned pregnancy and improve access to contraception, in 
     accordance with subsections (b) and (c).
       (b) An entity receiving grant funds described in subsection 
     (a)--
       (1) may use such funds for--

     contraceptive method use and insertion, and for pregnancy 
     intention screening;
       (B) consumer education;
       (C) facilitating same-day access to the full range of 
     contraceptive methods;
       (D) reducing out-of-pocket cost barriers to the full range 
     of contraceptive methods where such barriers are not already 
     addressed;
       (E) facilitating collaboration among public and private 
     health systems to ensure that individuals can access 
     contraceptive care in a timely manner; or
       (F) other activities that grant applicants can demonstrate 
     would help to improve contraceptive access in the State or 
     community; and
       (2) shall use such funds to--
       (A) provide contraceptive care that is non-coercive, 
     culturally competent care, and medically accurate;
       (B) provide information and access to the full range of 
     methods of contraception approved by the Food and Drug 
     Administration, or to fill existing gaps in information and 
     access to such contraception, so as to ensure equitable 
     access to the full range of contraceptive options; and
       (C) evaluate projects funded by such grant, in order to 
     demonstrate outcomes such as reducing gaps in contraceptive 
     use, increasing points of access for the full range of 
     contraceptive methods approved by the Food and Drug 
     Administration, and patient satisfaction with provider 
     encounter and method choice.
       (c) To be eligible for a grant described in subsection (a), 
     an entity shall be--
       (1) a State, local, or tribal government;
       (2) a public-private partnership; or
       (3) a nonprofit entity.
