analysis.
      (c) Expired Permits.--This section shall only apply if a

analysis required by NEPA and other applicable laws has not 
been completed and also shall include permits that expired or 
were waived in 1994 and 1995 before the date of enactment of 
this Act.

                      TITLE II--GENERAL PROVISIONS

SEC. 2001. EMERGENCY SALVAGE TIMBER SALE PROGRAM.

    (a) Definitions.--For purposes of this section:
            (1) The term ``appropriate committees of Congress'' 
        means the Committee on Resources, the Committee on 
        Agriculture, and the Committee on Appropriations of the 
        House of Representatives and the Committee on Energy 
        and Natural Resources, the Committee on Agriculture, 
        Nutrition, and Forestry, and the Committee on 
        Appropriations of the Senate.
            (2) The term ``emergency period'' means the period 
        beginning on the date of the enactment of this section 
        and ending on September 30, 1997.
            (3) The term ``salvage timber sale'' means a timber 
        sale for which an important reason for entry includes 
        the removal of disease- or insect-infested trees, dead, 
        damaged, or down trees, or trees affected by fire or 
        imminently susceptible to fire or insect attack. Such 
        term also includes the removal of associated trees or 
        trees lacking the characteristics of a healthy and 
        viable ecosystem for the purpose of ecosystem 
        improvement or rehabilitation, except that any such 
        sale must include an identifiable salvage component of 
        trees described in the first sentence.
            (4) The term ``Secretary concerned'' means--
                    (A) the Secretary of Agriculture, with 
                respect to lands within the National Forest 
                System; and
                    (B) the Secretary of the Interior, with 
                respect to Federal lands under the jurisdiction 
                of the Bureau of Land Management.
    (b) Completion of Salvage Timber Sales.--
            (1) Salvage timber sales.--Using the expedited 
        procedures provided in subsection (c), the Secretary 
        concerned shall prepare, advertise, offer, and award 
        contracts during the emergency period for salvage 
        timber sales from Federal lands described in subsection 
        (a)(4). During the emergency period, the Secretary 
        concerned is to achieve, to the maximum extent 
        feasible, a salvage timber sale volume level above the 
        programmed level to reduce the backlogged volume of 
        salvage timber. The preparation, advertisement, 
        offering, and awarding of such contracts shall be 
        performed notwithstanding any other provision of law, 
        including a law under the authority of which any 
        judicial order may be outstanding on or after the date 
        of the enactment of this Act.
            (2) Use of salvage sale funds.--To conduct salvage 
        timber sales under this subsection, the Secretary 
        concerned may use salvage sale funds otherwise 
        available to the Secretary concerned.
            (3) Sales in preparation.--Any salvage timber sale 
        in preparation on the date of the enactment of this Act 
        shall be subject to the provisions of this section.
    (c) Expedited Procedures for Emergency Salvage Timber 
Sales.--
            (1) Sale documentation.--
                    (A) Preparation.--For each salvage timber 
                sale conducted under subsection (b), the 
                Secretary concerned shall prepare a document 
                that combines an environmental assessment under 
                section 102(2) of the National Environmental 
                Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(E)) 
                (including regulations implementing such 
                section) and a biological evaluation under 
                section 7(a)(2) of the Endangered Species Act 
                of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1536(a)(2)) and other 
                applicable Federal law and implementing 
                regulations. At the sole discretion of the 
                Secretary concerned and to the extent the 
                Secretary concerned considers appropriate and 
                feasible, the document prepared under this 
                paragraph must consider the environmental 
                effects of the salvage timber sale and consider 
                the effect, if any, on threatened or endangered 
                species.
                    (B) Use of existing materials.--In lieu of 
                preparing a new document under this paragraph, 
                the Secretary concerned may use a document 
                prepared pursuant to the National Environmental 
                Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) 
                before the date of the enactment of this Act, a 
                biological evaluation written before such date, 
                or information collected for such a document or 
                evaluation if the document, evaluation, or 
                information applies to the Federal lands 
                covered by the proposed sale.
                    (C) Scope and content.--The scope and 
                content of the documentation and information 
                prepared, considered, and relied on under this 
                paragraph is at the sole discretion of the 
                Secretary concerned.
            (2) Reporting requirements.--Not later than August 
        30, 1995, the Secretary concerned shall submit a report 
        to the appropriate committees of Congress on the 
        implementation of this section. The report shall be 
        updated and resubmitted to the appropriate committees 
        of Congress every six months thereafter until the 
        completion of all salvage timber sales conducted under 
        subsection (b). Each report shall contain the 
        following:
                    (A) The volume of salvage timber sales sold 
                and harvested, as of the date of the report, 
                for each National Forest and each district of 
                the Bureau of Land Management.
                    (B) The available salvage volume contained 
                in each National Forest and each district of 
                the Bureau of Land Management.
                    (C) A plan and schedule for an enhanced 
                salvage timber sale program for fiscal years 
                1995, 1996, and 1997 using the authority 
                provided by this section for salvage timber 
                sales.
                    (D) A description of any needed resources 
                and personnel, including personnel 
                reassignments, required to conduct an enhanced 
                salvage timber sale program through fiscal year 
                1997.
                    (E) A statement of the intentions of the 
                Secretary concerned with respect to the salvage 
                timber sale volume levels specified in the 
                joint explanatory statement of managers 
                accompanying the conference report on this Act.
            (3) Advancement of sales authorized.--The Secretary 
        concerned may begin salvage timber sales under 
        subsection (b) intended for a subsequent fiscal year 
        before the start of such fiscal year if the Secretary 
        concerned determines that performance of such salvage 
        timber sales will not interfere with salvage timber 
        sales intended for a preceding fiscal year.
            (4) Decisions.--The Secretary concerned shall 
        design and select the specific salvage timber sales to 
        be offered under subsection (b) on the basis of the 
        analysis contained in the document or documents 
        prepared pursuant to paragraph (1) to achieve, to the 
        maximum extent feasible, a salvage timber sale volume 
        level above the program level.

                    (A) Use of available authorities.--The 
                Secretary concerned shall make use of all 
                available authority, including the employment 
                of private contractors and the use of expedited 
                fire contracting procedures, to prepare and 
                advertise salvage timber sales under subsection 
                (b).
                    (B) Exemptions.--The preparation, 
                solicitation, and award of salvage timber sales 
                under subsection (b) shall be exempt from--
                            (i) the requirements of the 
                        Competition in Contracting Act (41 
                        U.S.C. 253 et seq.) and the 
                        implementing regulations in the Federal 
                        Acquisition Regulation issued pursuant 
                        to section 25(c) of the Office of 
                        Federal Procurement Policy Act (41 
                        U.S.C. 421(c)) and any departmental 
                        acquisition regulations; and
                            (ii) the notice and publication 
                        requirements in section 18 of such Act 
                        (41 U.S.C. 416) and 8(e) of the Small 
                        Business Act (15 U.S.C. 637(e)) and the 
                        implementing regulations in the Federal 
                        Acquisition Regulations and any 
                        departmental acquisition regulations.
                    (C) Incentive payment recipients; report.--
                The provisions of section 3(d)(1) of the 
                Federal Workforce Restructuring Act of 1994 
                (Public Law 103-226; 5 U.S.C. 5597 note) shall 
                not apply to any former employee of the 
                Secretary concerned who received a voluntary 
                separation incentive payment authorized by such 
                Act and accepts employment pursuant to this 
                paragraph. The Director of the Office of 
                Personnel Management and the Secretary 
                concerned shall provide a summary report to the 
                appropriate committees of Congress, the 
                Committee on Government Reform and Oversight of 
                the House of Representatives, and the Committee 
                on Governmental Affairs of the Senate regarding 
                the number of incentive payment recipients who 
                were rehired, their terms of reemployment, 
                their job classifications, and an explanation, 
                in the judgment of the agencies involved of how 
                such reemployment without repayment of the 
                incentive payments received is consistent with 
                the original waiver provisions of such Act. 
                This report shall not be conducted in a manner 
                that would delay the rehiring of any former 
                employees under this paragraph, or affect the 
                normal confidentiality of Federal employees.
            (6) Cost considerations.--Salvage timber sales 
        undertaken pursuant to this section shall not be 
        precluded because the costs of such activities are 
        likely to exceed the revenues derived from such 
        activities.
            (7) Effect of salvage sales.--The Secretary 
        concerned shall not substitute salvage timber sales 
        conducted under subsection (b) for planned non-salvage 
        timber sales.
            (8) Reforestation of salvage timber sale parcels.--
        The Secretary concerned shall plan and implement 
        reforestation of each parcel of land harvested under a 
        salvage timber sale conducted under subsection (b) as 
        expeditiously as possible after completion of the 
        harvest on the parcel, but in no case later than any 
        applicable restocking period required by law or 
        regulation.
            (9) Effect on judicial decisions.--The Secretary 
        concerned may conduct salvage timber sales under 
        subsection (b) notwithstanding any decision, 
        restraining order, or injunction issued by a United 
        States court before the date of the enactment of this 
        section.
    (d) Direction to Complete Timber Sales on Lands Covered by 
Option 9.--Notwithstanding any other law (including a law under 
the authority of which any judicial order may be outstanding on 
or after the date of enactment of this Act), the Secretary 
concerned shall expeditiously prepare, offer, and award timber 
sale contracts on Federal lands described in the ``Record of 
Decision for Amendments to Forest Service and Bureau of Land 
Management Planning Documents Within the Range of the Northern 
Spotted Owl'', signed by the Secretary of the Interior and the 
Secretary of Agriculture on April 13, 1994. The Secretary 
concerned may conduct timber sales under this subsection 
notwithstanding any decision, restraining order, or injunction 
issued by a United States court before the date of the 
enactment of this section. The issuance of any regulation 
pursuant to section 4(d) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 
(16 U.S.C. 1533(d)) to ease or reduce restrictions on non-
Federal lands within the range of the northern spotted owl 
shall be deemed to satisfy the requirements of section 102(2c) 
of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 
4332(2c)), given the analysis included in the Final 
Supplemental Impact Statement on the Management of the Habitat 
for Late Successional and Old Growth Forest Related Species 
Within the Range of the Northern Spotted Owl, prepared by the 
Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of the Interior in 
1994, which is, or may be, incorporated by reference in the 
administrative record of any such regulation. The issuance of 
any such regulation pursuant to section 4(d) of the Endangered 
Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1533(d)) shall not require the 
preparation of an environmental impact statement under section 
102(2c) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 
U.S.C. 4332(2c)).
    (e) Administrative Review.--Salvage timber sales conducted 
under subsection (b), timber sales conducted under subsection 
(d), and any decision of the Secretary concerned in connection 
with such sales, shall not be subject to administrative review.
    (f) Judicial Review.--
            (1) Place and time of filing.--A salvage timber 
        sale to be conducted under subsection (b), and a timber

      This Act may be cited as the ``Emergency Supplemental 
Appropriations for Additional Disaster Assistance, for Anti-
terrorism Initiatives, for Assistance in the Recovery from the 
Tragedy that Occurred at Oklahoma City, and Rescissions Act, 
1995''.
      And amend the title of the bill to read as follows:
      Making emergency supplemental appropriations for 
additional disaster assistance, for anti-terrorism initiatives, 
for assistance in the recovery from the tragedy that occurred 
at Oklahoma City, and making rescissions for the fiscal year 
ending September 30, 1995, and for other purposes.
      And the Senate agree to the same.

       JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE

      The managers on the part of the House and the Senate at 
the conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on 
the amendments of the Senate to the bill (H.R. 1158) making 
emergency supplemental appropriations for additional disaster 
assistance and making rescissions for the fiscal year ending 
September 30, 1995, and for other purposes, submit the 
following joint statement to the House and the Senate in 
explanation of the effects of the action agreed upon by the 
managers and recommended in the accompanying conference report.
      Report language included by the House in the report 
accompanying H.R. 1158 (H. Rept. 104-70) and the report 
accompanying H.R. 1159 (H. Rept. 104-71) which is not changed 
by the report of the Senate (S. Rept. 104-17), and Senate 
Report language which is not changed by the conference are 
approved by the committee of conference. The statement of the 
managers while repeating some report language for emphasis, is 
not intended to negate the language referred to above unless 
expressly provided herein.

                            enacting clause

      The conference agreement contains an amended enacting 
clause that reflects the inclusion of emergency supplemental 
appropriations for recovery operations in response to the 
tragedy that occurred at Oklahoma City and for anti-terrorism 
initiatives. Neither the House nor Senate bills included these 
purposes in their respective enacting clauses.

                 TITLE I--SUPPLEMENTALS AND RESCISSIONS

                               CHAPTER I

      DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE, RURAL DEVELOPMENT, FOOD AND DRUG 
                  ADMINISTRATION, AND RELATED AGENCIES

                       DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

                     Agricultural Research Service

      The conference agreement transfers $2,218,000 back to the 
Agricultural Research Service as proposed by the Senate. These 
funds were appropriated to the Agricultural Research Service 
and subsequently transferred to a new account, ``Nutrition 
Initiatives,'' established by the Department. The Food and 
Nutrition Service can continue to fund ``Nutrition 
Initiatives'' from funds made available to the Service, such as 
those for Dietary Guidelines. The House bill contained no 
similar provision.

                   Food Safety and Inspection Service

      The conference agreement provides a supplemental 
appropriation of $9,082,000 for the Food Safety and Inspection 
Service as proposed by the Senate instead of $9,048,000 as 
proposed by the House.

          Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement provides a supplemental 
appropriation of $5,000,000 for Agricultural Stabilization and 
Conservation Service, Salaries and Expenses instead of 
$10,000,000 as proposed by the House. The Senate bill contained 
no similar provision.

                   Commodity Credit Corporation Fund

                           food for progress

      The conference agreement includes language raising the 
limit from $30,000,000 to $50,000,000 on transport and other 
noncommodity funds available from the Commodity Credit 
Corporation to facilitate donations of commodities under the 
Food for Progress Program. Both the House and the Senate bills 
contained similar provisions.

                  Rural Electrification Administration

       rural electrification and telephone loans program account

      The conference agreement includes language to eliminate 
the interest cap on the Treasury rate telephone loan program as 
proposed by the Senate. The House bill contained no similar 
provision.

                       Food and Nutrition Service

                  commodity supplemental food program

      The conference agreement includes language allowing 20 
percent of funds carried over from fiscal year 1994 to be 
available for administrative costs of the Commodity 
Supplemental Food Program as proposed by the Senate. The House 
bill contained no similar provision.

                           General Provisions

                        market promotion program

      The conference agreement includes language permitting the 
operation of the Market Promotion Program at a level not to 
exceed $110,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The House bill 
contained no similar provision.

                        delineation of wetlands

      The conference agreement deletes Senate language 
prohibiting the Department from making wetland delineations 
through December 31, 1995, unless the owner or operator of the 
land requests such a determination. On April 6, 1995, the 
Secretary of Agriculture announced that the Department would 
make wetland delineations and certifications only on request of 
the landowner until Congress completes action on the 1995 Farm 
Bill and the National Academy of Sciences completes work on a 
wetlands study. The conferees strongly support this position 
and direct the Secretary to enforce his policy until the 1995 
Farm Bill is enacted into law.

                        office of the secretary

      The conference agreement rescinds $31,000 from the Office 
of the Secretary as proposed by both the House and the Senate. 
The conference agreement also includes language limiting the 
use of the Secretary's transfer authority without prior 
notification to the Committees on Appropriations as proposed by 
both the House and the Senate.
        alternative agricultural research and commercialization

      The conference agreement rescinds $1,500,000 from 
Alternative Agricultural Research and Commercialization instead 
of $3,000,000 as proposed by the House. The Senate bill 
contained no similar provision.

                     Agricultural Research Service

                        buildings and facilities

      The conference agreement rescinds $1,400,000 from 
Agricultural Research Service, Buildings and Facilities instead 
of $12,678,000 as proposed by the House and $1,500,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The amount rescinded is to be taken 
from unobligated balances of the U.S. Salinity Laboratory in 
Riverside, California, and other miscellaneous projects. The 
House bill proposed rescinding $12,678,000 from amounts 
appropriated for the National Swine Research Facility in Ames, 
Iowa. The conference agreement provides that the $12,678,000 
for the National Swine Research Facility be provided as a grant 
to Iowa State University to construct that facility at Ames, 
Iowa. The conferees direct the Agricultural Research Service to 
convey ownership to Iowa State University. The conferees are 
aware of the interest and need for important swine research; 
however, financial constraints require difficult choices. The 
conferees expect that any future costs of operation associated 
with that facility be provided by sources other than the 
federal government. Iowa State University should work in 
collaboration with the industry to cover research and 
additional construction costs or to offset these costs through 
the consolidation of federal research activities.

                   cooperative state research service

      The conference agreement rescinds $1,051,000 from the 
Cooperative State Research Service as proposed by the House 
instead of $958,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference 
agreement rescinds $524,000 from the Oregon/Massachusetts/
Pennsylvania biotechnology project; $434,000 from the American 
Indian Initiative of the Arid Lands Development Fund; and 
$93,000 from the Potato Tariff and Trade Association. The 
conference agreement also makes a technical correction to 
Public Law 103-330 for the 1890 capacity building grants 
program as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

                        buildings and facilities

      The conference agreement rescinds $2,184,000 from 
Cooperative State Research Service, Buildings and Facilities 
instead of $20,994,000 as proposed by the House. The Senate 
bill contained no similar provision. The conference agreement 
rescinds funds from projects at Minot State University, North 
Dakota--$280,000; Cornell University, New York--$143,000; and 
the University of Idaho--$1,761,000. The conferees note that 
continuation of feasibility studies and/or planning or 
construction funds in fiscal year 1995 do not signal potential 
for continued funding. The conferees expect a thorough review 
and significant changes to the criteria for future 
consideration of any funding. Universities should be aware that 
potential future restrictions on subcommittee allocations make 
future funding in doubt.

               Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service

                        buildings and facilities

      The conference agreement rescinds $2,000,000 from Animal 
and Plant Health Inspection Service, Buildings and Facilities 
instead of $6,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The amount 
rescinded is to be taken from unobligated balances. The House 
bill contained no similar provision.

    Rural Development Administration and Farmers Home Administration

              rural housing insurance fund program account

      The conference agreement rescinds $15,500,000 from the 
section 515 Rural Rental Housing Program instead of 
$115,500,000 as proposed by the House. The Senate bill 
contained no similar provision. The conferees agree that 
available funds should be used to rehabilitate projects in need 
of repair.

             local technical assistance and planning grants

      The conference agreement rescinds $1,750,000 from Local 
Technical Assistance and Planning Grants as proposed by both 
the House and the Senate.

             alcohol fuels credit guarantee program account

      The conference agreement rescinds $9,000,000 from the 
Alcohol Fuels Credit Guarantee Program Account as proposed by 
both the House and the Senate.

                  Rural Electrification Administration

       rural electrification and telephone loans program account

      The conference agreement rescinds $1,500,000 from the 
Rural Electrification and Telephone Loans Program Account for 5 
percent telephone loans as proposed by the Senate instead of 
$3,000,000 as proposed by the House.

                       Food and Nutrition Service

  special supplemental food program for women, infants, and children 
                                 (wic)

      The conference agreement rescinds $20,000,000 from the 
Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants, and 
Children (WIC) instead of $25,000,000 as proposed by the House. 
The Senate bill contained no similar provision.
      The conference agreement also deletes Senate language 
allowing $10,000,000 of WIC administrative funds to be 
available for grants to state agencies to promote immunization. 
The conferees are aware of studies, such as the Chicago WIC 
Study, that show a direct link between increased immunizations 
among low-income children and immunization screening at WIC 
clinics. In fiscal year 1994, the average monthly participation 
of infants and children under the age of five in the WIC 
program was five million. Providing immunization screening and 
incentives for this population would result in future health 
care savings to both states and the federal government. The 
conferees direct the Department to provide a report to the 
House and Senate authorizing and Appropriations Committees that 
outlines legislative changes needed to allow state WIC agencies 
to provide incentives to participants to increase immunization 
activities by July 31, 1995. The conferees also expect the 
Department to provide assistance to state agencies interested 
in obtaining Center for Disease Control and Prevention grants 
for immunization support activities.

                      Foreign Agricultural Service

                     public law 480 program account

                      title iii--commodity grants

      The conference agreement rescinds $40,000,000 from the 
Public Law 480 title III Program Account. The House bill 
proposed a rescission of $20,000,000 from title III--Commodity 
Grants. The Senate bill proposed rescissions of $43,865,000 
from title I--Credit Sales, $6,135,000 from Ocean Freight 
Differential, and $92,500,000 from title III--Commodity Grants.
                               CHAPTER II

DEPARTMENTS OF COMMERCE, JUSTICE, AND STATE, THE JUDICIARY, AND RELATED 
                                AGENCIES

                            RELATED AGENCIES

                 National Bankruptcy Review Commission

                          (Transfer of Funds)

      The conference agreement includes the transfer of 
$1,000,000 from the Department of Justice Working Capital Fund 
to the National Bankruptcy Review Commission. The Senate bill 
included a transfer of $1,500,000 from the Working Capital Fund 
for the National Bankruptcy Review Commission, as proposed by 
the Administration. The House bill did not provide funds to the 
National Bankruptcy Review Commission, but rescinded $1,500,000 
in unobligated balances from the Working Capital Fund.
      Given the obvious constraints on the Committees' 
resources in fiscal year 1996, the conferees urge the 
Commission to explore ways to accomplish its mission within the 
amounts provided.

                    United States Information Agency

                 international broadcasting operations

      The conference agreement includes a supplemental 
appropriation of $7,290,000, the amount requested by the 
Administration, to be provided to Radio Free Europe/Radio 
Liberty (RFE/RL) to make up for currency exchange losses, as 
proposed by the House. The Senate proposed a rescission of 
$27,710,000 from International Broadcasting Operations, which 
includes RFE/RL and the Voice of America (VOA).
      International broadcasting programs are in the middle of 
a major downsizing and reorganization mandated by the 1994 
authorization bill, the United States International 
Broadcasting Act of 1994. As it is being implemented, the total 
savings of the reorganization over the four-year period 1994-
1997 will exceed $400 million. The rescission proposed by the 
Senate would make it impossible to complete that action, and, 
in fact, in the words of the Director of the United States 
Information Agency, ``will throw both VOA and RFE/RL into a 
complete state of chaos for the remainder of FY 1995, with 
ramifications extending well beyond.''
      RFE/RL has already been severely impacted by the fall of 
the dollar against the German mark, totaling potentially $24 
million, which is the reason for the supplemental 
recommendation by the conferees, to at least partially offset 
the costs of the exchange losses.
      In lieu of the Senate passed rescission of International 
Broadcasting funds, the conferees have agreed to rescind 
$28,000,000 from other USIA broadcasting and exchange programs, 
which are set forth under the rescissions portion of this 
chapter.

                         DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

                       Office of Justice Programs

                              drug courts

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$22,100,000 from the Drug Courts program, instead of 
$27,750,000 as proposed by the House and $17,100,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.

                      ounce of prevention council

      The conference agreement includes language requested by 
the Administration which allows funds appropriated for grants 
by the Ounce of Prevention Council in Public Law 103-317 to 
also be available for administrative expenses of the Council. 
The language also allows the Council to accept, hold, 
administer and use gifts, both real and personal, for the 
purpose of facilitating its work. This language was included in 
both the House and Senate versions of the bill.
      The conference agreement does not include the rescission 
of $1,000,000 from this account as proposed by the Senate.

                         General Administration

                          working capital fund

      The conference agreement includes a rescission totaling 
$5,500,000 from unobligated balances available in the Working 
Capital Fund, instead of $1,500,000 as proposed by the House 
and $5,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conferees have 
also agreed to the transfer of $1,000,000 from the Working 
Capital Fund for necessary expenses of the National Bankruptcy 
Review Commission, instead of $1,500,000 as proposed by the 
Senate.

                            Legal Activities

                         assets forfeiture fund

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$5,000,000 from the Assets Forfeiture Fund as proposed by the 
Senate. The House bill contained no provision on this matter.

                 Immigration and Naturalization Service

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$1,000,000 from the Immigration and Naturalization Service as 
proposed by both the House and the Senate.

                         Federal Prison System

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES
      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$28,037,000 as proposed by the Administration, not included in 
either the House or Senate bills, to partially offset the anti-
terrorism supplemental included in a separate title. These 
funds represent balances the Bureau of Prisons has indicated 
are not necessary and will expire at the end of this fiscal 
year due to adjustments in the schedule of new facility 
activations.

                         DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE

             National Institute of Standards and Technology

             scientific and technical research and services

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$17,000,000 from the National Institute of Standards and 
Technology (NIST) internal research account, instead of 
$16,500,000 as proposed by the House, and $19,500,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The conferees expect NIST and the 
Department of Commerce to submit a reprogramming notification, 
under the Committee's standard reprogramming procedures, 
indicating the proposed distribution of this reduction by 
research category in accordance with the guidance given in the 
House and Senate reports accompanying this bill.

                     industrial technology services

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$16,300,000 from the NIST Industrial Technology Services 
account for Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Program 
and the Quality Program, instead of $27,100,000 as proposed by 
the House and $3,100,000 as proposed by the Senate.

                  construction of research facilities

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$30,000,000 from unobligated balances available in the NIST 
Construction account as proposed by the Senate. The House bill 
included no provision on this matter.
            National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

                  operations, research and facilities

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$24,200,000 from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration (NOAA), instead of $37,000,000 as proposed by 
the House and $23,100,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
distribution of this rescission is as follows:

National Undersea Research Program (NURP)...............     -$3,500,000
Coastal Ocean Program...................................      -3,000,000
High Performance Computing..............................      -1,000,000
Climate and Global Change...............................     -14,000,000
Aircraft Services (Doppler Radar).......................      -2,700,000

      The conferees expect NOAA to submit a notification under 
the Committees' standard reprogramming procedures, informing 
the Committees of the proposed distribution by activity of the 
rescissions provided for the NURP and Coastal Ocean programs.
      The conferees direct the National Marine and Fisheries 
Service (NMFS) to immediately convene a team of experts to 
scientifically peer review and examine all the information 
available on its March 14, 1995, Sea Turtle, Shrimp Fishery 
Emergency Response Plan (ERP) and the NMFS and NOAA Sea Turtle 
Conservation Restrictions Applicable to Shrimp Trawling 
Activities announced in the May 3, 1995 Federal Register. The 
conferees direct that individuals with appropriate scientific 
expertise nominated by the shrimp fishing industry and the 
conservation community be part of the peer process and team.
      The conferees also direct NMFS to immediately seek 
detailed recommendations and analysis from affected shrimp 
industry members and the conservation community on its March 
14, 1995 restrictions, including a detailed assessment of the 
economic impact on the affected shrimp fishing industry. The 
Assistant Administrator shall convene immediate meetings with 
representatives of such groups to review and develop such 
recommendations.
      The conferees direct NMFS to work with the shrimp fishing 
industry to revise its March 14, 1995 Emergency Response Plan 
and its May 3, 1995 restrictions to include the results of the 
scientific peer review and the alternatives for lessening the 
economic impact on the shrimp fishing industry. These 
alternatives may include exemptions to using turtle excluder 
devices (TEDs) in smaller try nets. NMFS is directed to publish 
for public comment and input only the revised plans for the May 
14, 1995 Emergency Response Plan and the May 3, 1995 
restrictions by June 30, 1995. The conferees direct NMFS and 
the Department of Commerce not to implement any shrimp fishery 
closures, that may result from the March 14, 1995 ERP, prior to 
September 30, 1995.
      Due to the urgency of this situation, the conferees 
intend that the scientific peer review process and the meetings 
between NMFS and the affected industry and conservation groups 
will be exempt from Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) 
requirements.

                              construction

      The conference agreement rescinds $15,000,000 from the 
NOAA Construction account, as proposed by the Senate. The House 
bill contained no provision on this matter. The conferees 
intend that this rescission be distributed as follows: 
$9,000,000 from unobligated balances for the replacement of the 
Tiburon laboratory and $6,000,000 from unobligated balances 
designated for above standard costs at the Boulder laboratory.

                    goes satellite contingency fund

      The conferees have included a rescission of $2,500,000 
from the remaining balances in the GOES Contingency Fund, as 
proposed by the Senate. The House bill contained no provision 
on this matter.

                       technology administration

       under secretary for technology/office of technology policy

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$1,750,000 from the Under Secretary for Technology/Office of 
Technology Policy account, instead of $3,300,000 as proposed by 
the House. The Senate bill includes no provision on this 
matter.

                 National Technical Information Service

                          ntis revolving fund

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$1,000,000 from the NTIS Revolving Fund, including appropriated 
amounts and offsetting collections received into the Fund. The 
House bill rescinded $4,000,000 of appropriated amounts from 
this account, and the Senate bill a rescission of $7,600,000 of 
appropriated amounts.

       National Telecommunications and Information Administration

                       information infrastructure

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$4,000,000 from the National Telecommunications and Information 
Administration (NTIA) Information Infrastructure Grant program. 
The House bill included a rescission of $30,000,000 from this 
account. The Senate bill included no provision on this matter. 
An additional rescission of $15,000,000 from this account was 
included in the conference agreement on H.R. 889 (Public Law 
104-6).

                  Economic Development Administration

                economic development assistance programs

      The conference agreement includes a rescission totaling 
$30,250,000 from the Economic Development Assistance Programs 
account under the Economic Development Administration. This 
amount includes $5,250,000 in remaining balances from prior 
year emergency appropriations for Hurricanes Andrew and Iniki 
and the Midwest floods, and $25,000,000 from amounts provided 
in fiscal year 1995 that were set aside for the proposed 
Competitive Communities program, which was never approved by 
Congress. The $25,000,000 rescission should be distributed 
proportionately to the categories which served as the source of 
the original reprogramming proposal--Defense Conversion and 
traditional title IX grants. The conferees note that more than 
$2,000,000 in unobligated balances related to the emergency 
supplements for Hurricanes Andrew and Iniki and the Midwest 
floods will remain available for projects currently in the 
funding pipeline.
      The House bill included a rescission totaling $45,084,000 
under this heading, of which $37,584,000 was from prior year 
emergency appropriations and $7,500,000 was from the other 
prior year projects. Most of these funds have since been 
obligated. The Senate rescissions totaled $47,384,000, of which 
$7,384,000 was from prior year emergency appropriations and 
$40,000,000 was from funds made available to EDA for fiscal 
year 1995.
      Although EDA's proposed Competitive Communities program 
was denied by the Congress, the conferees are disturbed by 
recent actions that appear to pursue the Competitive 
Communities proposal. The conferees note that the cornerstone 
of the Competitive Communities proposal was to provide single 
grant-loans to private industries. The conferees also note that 
the Congress specially rejected this policy change when the 
Competitive Communities proposal was denied. The conferees 
understand that while single purpose grant-loans have been 
awarded by EDA in the past, these types of grants had been the 
exception rather than the rule: between 1982 and 1992, only 18 
single grant-loans were awarded. In the last two years, 
however, 8 single grant-loans have been awarded. The conferees 
believe that this dramatic increase in the number of single 
grant-loans awarded represent a major policy change away from 
the traditional Title IX programs--a change of which the 
Appropriations Committees were not apprised. The conferees 
strongly disagree with this policy shift, and expect EDA to 
continue to give highest priority to the traditional and more 
flexible Title IX programs: multi-purpose revolving loan funds, 
infrastructure and technical assistance. The conferees strongly 
encourage EDA to use remaining unobligated Title IX funds for 
traditional Title IX programs.

                             THE JUDICIARY
               United States Court of International Trade

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$1,000,000 from amounts provided in fiscal year 1995 for the 
U.S. Court of International Trade, as proposed by the Senate. 
The House bill contained no provision on this matter. This 
amount has been identified as excess by the Court, and will 
have no impact on its operations.

    Courts of Appeals, District Courts, and Other Judicial Services

                           defender services

      The conference agreement includes a rescission totaling 
$9,500,000 from the Judiciary's Defender Services account. The 
House bill included a rescission of $1,100,000 from this 
account, and the Senate bill rescinded $4,100,000. The 
conferees have agreed to the Senate level, plus the additional 
$5,400,000 proposed by the Judiciary as an offset to the anti-
terrorism supplemental included in a separate title in this 
bill.

                    fees of jurors and commissioners

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$5,000,000 from the Judiciary's Fees of Jurors and 
Commissioners account. This rescission was not included in 
either the House or Senate version of the bill, but was 
proposed by the Judiciary as an offset to the anti-terrorism 
supplemental request which is addressed in another title in 
this bill.

                            RELATED AGENCIES

                     Small Business Administration

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement includes no rescission under 
this heading. Both the House and Senate versions of the bill 
included a rescission of $15,000,000 from the Small Business 
Administration's tree planting program, but this rescission was 
included in the conference agreement on H.R. 889 (Public Law 
104-6) and is no longer available.

                     business loans program account

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$6,000,000 from the Small Business Administration's Business 
Loans Program Account, instead of $15,000,000 as proposed by 
the Senate. The House bill contained no provision on this 
matter.
      The conferees intend that the rescission of $6,000,000 be 
applied as follows: $4,000,000 from the subsidy amounts 
available under the Microloan program, and $2,000,000 from 
other loan programs referenced in the Senate report.
      The conference agreement also includes language 
clarifying the availability of funds provided to the SBA in 
fiscal year 1994 and fiscal year 1995 for the National Center 
for Genome Resources.

                       Legal Services Corporation

               payment to the legal services corporation

      The conference agreement includes language not in either 
bill that delineates reductions to the Legal Services 
Corporation included in a prior rescission of funds and 
provides no further rescission. The House bill included a 
rescission of $5,849,000. The Senate bill contained no 
provision on this matter. The conferees note that a $15,000,000 
rescission to the Corporation was included in Public Law 104-6.
      The conference agreement includes language, not in either 
bill, allocating the reductions contained in Public Law 104-6. 
The conferees believe that any reductions should be taken out 
of lower priority programs, in order to minimize the impact on 
the basic field programs which provide direct legal assistance 
of individuals and are the central mission of the Corporation. 
The reductions delineated are based on: (1) reductions of the 
unanticipated carryover balances by program; (2) reductions of 
the supplemental and specialized delivery programs, which are 
in addition to the basic field programs, to their Fiscal Year 
1994 levels; (3) reductions of support programs, which do not 
provide direct legal assistance to individuals, to their Fiscal 
Year 1993 levels; and (4) reductions of Corporation management 
and grant administration to the Fiscal Year 1994 levels.

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$2,250,000 from Diplomatic and Consular Programs of the 
Department of State. The House bill included a rescission of 
$2,000,000, and the Senate bill included a rescission of 
$2,500,000.

            acquisition and maintenance of buildings abroad

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$30,000,000 from unobligated balances in the State Department's

              International Organizations and Conferences

        contributions for international peacekeeping activities

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$14,617,000 from the International Peacekeeping Activities 
account,which funds the payment of assessed costs of United 
Nations peacekeeping operations, as proposed by both the House 
and the Senate. Of this amount, $1,216,000 is rescinded from 
the amount previously appropriated for the United Nations 
Operation in Somalia and $13,401,000 is rescinded from the 
amount previously provided for the United Nation's Mission for 
the Referendum in Western Sahara.

                            RELATED AGENCIES

                  Arms Control and Disarmament Agency

                arms control and disarmament activities

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$4,000,000, of which $2,500,000 is rescinded from the amount 
appropriated for the implementation of the Chemical Weapons 
Conventions, and $1,500,000 is rescinded as a general 
administrative reduction. The House proposed a rescission of 
$3,000,000, of which $2,000,000 was from the Chemical Weapons 
Convention, and $1,000,000 was a general administrative 
reduction. The Senate proposed a rescission of $4,000,000, of 
which $2,000,000 was from the Chemical Weapons Convention, and 
$2,000,000 was a general administrative reduction.

                  Board for International Broadcasting

                          israel relay station

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$2,000,000 from unobligated funds available for a canceled 
project, the Israel Relay station, as proposed by both the 
House and the Senate.

                    United States Information Agency

               educational and cultural exchange programs

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$5,000,000 from the United States Information Agency's exchange 
programs, as proposed by both the House and the Senate. The 
conferees direct USIA to submit its proposal to carry out this 
rescission through the normal reprogramming procedures prior to 
implementing specific program reductions.
                           radio construction

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$16,000,000 from unobligated balances in USIA's Radio 
Construction account. Both the House and the Senate had 
proposed a rescission of $6,000,000.

                            radio free asia

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$5,000,000 of the $10,000,000 appropriated in fiscal year 1995 
for Radio Free Asia, instead of $6,000,000, as proposed by the 
Senate. The House bill had no similar provision.
      None of the fiscal year 1995 appropriation for Radio Free 
Asia has been spent or obligated. Under the authorizing 
legislation, the United States International Broadcasting Act 
of 1994, no funds can be spent on Radio Free Asia until a new 
Broadcasting Board of Governors is in place and has submitted a 
detailed plan within 90 days for the establishment and 
operation of Radio Free Asia. As of this point, the full Board 
has not been nominated, let alone confirmed, and obviously, no 
plan has been submitted. Since the fiscal year is more than 
half over, and the likelihood of the full appropriation being 
obligated this year is remote, the conferees have agreed to 
rescind one-half of the appropriation for this fiscal year.

proposed by the House.
      Columbia River Juvenile Fish Mitigation, Oregon and 
Washington.--The conferees reiterate language regarding the 
juvenile fish mitigation program and surface collection bypass 
systems contained in Senate Report 103-291 and agreed to in the 
statement of the managers accompanying Public Law 103-316, the 
Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act, 1995. The 
conferees expect the Corps of Engineers to move forward 
aggressively to test and install project modifications that 
improve the effectiveness and efficiency of bypass systems. One 
modification, identified by both Federal and private engineers, 
is baffled or slotted spillway gates. Experience from non-
Federal Columbia River dams indicates that slotted spillway 
gates could improve fish passage efficiency and reduce 
dissolved gas saturation levels, as well as the cost of the 
fish spill program. A larger percentage of juvenile fish could 
be passed through the project using significantly less water 
than would occur with existing, unmodified spillways.
      The conferees direct the Corps to begin work immediately 
to design, construct and test spillway gate modifications at 
The Dalles and on one other project by next spring. The Corps 
is encouraged to use private sector engineering firms and any 
other available means to accelerate the work, as necessary, to 
assist in completing this effort early in 1996. The Corps shall 
report to the Committees on Appropriations on the progress of 
this effort by August 15, 1995.

                         Bureau of Reclamation

                       Operation and Maintenance

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$10,000,000 as proposed by the House and the Senate.

                          DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

                   General Application of Rescissions

      The conferees direct that the reductions be applied as 
broadly as possible without targeting, disproportionately 
affecting or terminating any single project or activity, 
including congressional directives and priorities. Reductions 
should be taken against low priority, noncritical activities to 
the greatest extent possible, and the Department should use 
this as an opportunity to review and reduce uncosted balances 
remaining in many program areas.

           Energy Supply, Research and Development Activities

      The conference agreement rescinds $74,000,000 for Energy 
Supply, Research and Development Activities instead of 
$116,500,000 as proposed by the House and $71,500,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. Differences between the House and 
Senate recommendations are explained below.
      Solar and Renewable Energy.--The conferees agree to 
rescind $30,000,000 instead of $35,000,000 as proposed by the 
House and $25,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conferees 
direct that renewable energy programs that are being cost-
shared with U.S. industry for research and development and 
commercialization collaboratives and technology validation be 
preserved, to the extent possible, so that program downsizing 
will not adversely affect the industry co-investors in U.S. 
programs. Also, reductions should be applied, to the extent 
possible, to increases provided in fiscal year 1995 over the 
fiscal year 1994 levels including the global climate change 
programs in order to preserve needed research priorities.
      Environmental, Safety and Health.--The conference 
agreement includes a rescission of $6,000,000 as proposed by 
the House and the Senate.
      Biological and Environmental Research.--The conferees 
agree to rescind $10,000,000 instead of $15,000,000 as proposed 
by the House and $5,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      Fusion Energy.--The conferees agree to rescind $7,500,000 
instead of $15,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The House had 
proposed no rescission for this program. The conferees direct 
that the fiscal year 1995 rescission be taken evenly from every 
component of the program, domestic and international, and that 
no program or project should be held harmless.
      Basic Energy Sciences.--The conference agreement rescinds 
$5,000,000 as proposed by the House and the Senate.
      Advanced Neutron Source.--The conference agreement 
rescinds $7,500,000 as proposed by the House and the Senate.
      Energy Oversight, Research Analysis & University 
Support.--The conference agreement rescinds $8,000,000 as 
proposed by the House and the Senate.
      Environmental Restoration and Waste Management 
(Nondefense).--The conferees have proposed no rescission for 
this program as proposed by the Senate instead of $45,000,000 
as proposed by the House.

                    Atomic Energy Defense Activities

         defense environmental restoration and waste management

      The conferees have proposed no rescission for this 
program instead of $28,000,000 as proposed by the House and 
$13,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.

              materials support and other defense programs

      The conference agreement rescinds $15,000,000 from the 
security investigation program as proposed by the Senate. The 
House had proposed no rescission for this program.

                      departmental administration

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$20,000,000 as proposed by the House and the Senate.

                    Power Marketing Administrations

        Construction, Rehabilitation, Operation and Maintenance

                   Western Area Power Administration

      The conference agreement rescinds $30,000,000 as proposed 
by the Senate. The House had proposed no rescission for this 
program.

                          INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

                           debt restructuring

                         debt relief for jordan

      The conference agreement provides new budget authority of 
$275,000,000 for ``Debt relief for Jordan'', the same as the 
budget request. The House had proposed an appropriation of 
$50,000,000 for this purpose to cover debt owed by Jordan for 
direct loans issued by the Department of Defense, the Agency 
for International Development, and the Export-Import Bank. The 
Senate amendment would have provided new budget authority of 
$275,000,000 to cover debt owed by Jordan for direct loans 
issued by these agencies as well as by the Department of 
Agriculture's P.L. 480 program and by the Commodity Credit 
Corporation. However, the Senate amendment would have limited 
obligations in fiscal year 1995 to $50,000,000. The conference 
agreement does not contain any such limitation on obligations.

                              rescissions

      The House bill contained rescissions totaling 
$191,575,000 from specific appropriations accounts. The Senate 
amendment had proposed a general rescission of $125,000,000 
from any unearmarked and unobligated balances of funds provided 
in Public Law 103-87 and Public Law 103-306. The conference 
agreement contains rescissions from specific appropriations 
accounts totaling $157,700,000, as described below.

                    Multilateral Economic Assistance

                  funds appropriated to the president

                international organizations and programs

      The conference agreement rescinds $15,000,000 from funds 
appropriated in Public Law 103-306 for ``International 
organizations and programs''. The House bill proposed a 
rescission of $25,000,000 from this account. The Senate 
amendment did not contain a provision on this matter.

                     Bilateral Economic Assistance

                  funds appropriated to the president

                  agency for international development

                      development assistance fund

      The conference agreement rescinds $41,300,000 from 
``Development assistance fund''. The House bill had proposed a 
rescission of $45,500,000 from this account. The Senate 
amendment did not contain a provision on this matter.

                   population, development assistance

      The conference agreement rescinds $19,000,000 from 
``Population, development assistance''. The House bill had 
proposed a rescission of $9,000,000 from this account. The 
Senate amendment did not contain a provision on this matter.

                      development fund for africa

      The conference agreement rescinds $21,000,000 from 
``Development fund for Africa''. Neither the House bill nor the 
Senate amendment addressed this matter.

  debt restructuring under the enterprise for the americas initiative

      The conference agreement rescinds $2,400,000 from ``Debt 
restructuring under the Enterprise for the Americas 
Initiative'', the same as recommended in the House bill. The 
Senate amendment did not contain a provision on this matter.

                         economic support fund

      The conference agreement rescinds $25,000,000 from

      The conference agreement does not identify specific 
program cuts for the research, inventory and monitoring, and 
information transfer activities.
      The managers recognize that rescissions at this time of 
year have significant impacts on agency programs, facilities, 
and personnel. Future budgets are unlikely to allow for 
restoration of the funds proposed for rescission, thus, lower 
priority areas should be the focus of fiscal year 1995 
adjustments. The agency should try to avoid facility closures 
in this fiscal year. But, in preparing for action on the fiscal 
year 1996 budget, the National Biological Service should review 
all programs and facilities in light of the need for possible 
future reductions, closures, or consolidations.

      Bill language has been included to specify that the 
rescission applies to fiscal year 1995 and prior year funds.

                     urban park and recreation fund

      The conference agreement rescinds $7,480,000 from the 
Urban Park and Recreation Fund as proposed by both the House 
and the Senate. This will eliminate the program in fiscal year 
1995.
      While the program's goal of providing incentives for 
cities to improve their recreational opportunities is of value, 
the managers believe that, given the size of the federal 
deficit, programs of this nature are appropriately left to 
State and local governments.
                 Land Acquisition and State Assistance

      The conference agreement rescinds $13,634,000 from Land 
Acquisition and State Assistance, instead of $16,509,000 as 
proposed by the House and $9,983,000 as proposed by the Senate. 
The managers agree to the following rescissions:

                Royalty and Offshore Minerals Management

      The conference agreement rescinds $514,000 from Royalty 
and Offshore Minerals Management for environmental studies, 
instead of $0 as proposed by the House and $814,000 as proposed 
by the Senate.
      The managers expect the Service to initiate the 
Northeastern Gulf of Mexico circulation modeling study in 
fiscal year 1995 as planned. As in the past, the managers 
encourage the Service to concentrate its Outer Continental 
Shelf environmental study efforts in those areas where there is 
active leasing and production.

      The $750,000 proposed for rescission from forward-funded 
education programs should be derived by reducing travel not 
related to student transportation. This decrease should be 
derived by taking a pro rata reduction to forward-funded Indian 
School Equalization Program (ISEP) formula funds.

      The managers agree that the Forest Service should 
reprogram $487,000 from the Croatan NF, NC, Cedar Point-
Flanders Beach Campground to the North Carolina NFs, Cradle of 
Forestry to provide funding for the exhibits at this facility.
      The conference agreement includes bill language, as 
proposed by the Senate, which corrects a reference in the 
fiscal year 1995 appropriation.

                            land acquisition

      The conference agreement modifies bill language proposed 
by the Senate which would prohibit the Forest Service from 
using available land acquisition funds to initiate new 
acquisitions of private lands within the Wayne National Forest. 
The managers expect the Forest Service to honor any existing 
commitment where the Service has signed an option to buy with 
the land owner.

      The managers expect that the funds remaining for the 
gasification product improvement facility in West Virginia and 
the mild gasification facility in Illinois, after necessary 
closeout costs, will be made available for high priority, in-
house gasification research activities.
      The managers have included a rescission of $2,000,000 
which is an offset for funds which are available from 
unobligated prior year balances in the gas research ($720,000) 
and coal research ($1,280,000) programs. These reductions are 
taken to replace partially the fiscal year 1995 funds that were 
recommended for rescission by both the House and the Senate but 
which have been obligated by the Department since the original 
rescission recommendations were made.

                 naval petroleum and oil shale reserves

      The conference agreement includes no rescission from the 
Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves, instead of $21,000,000 
as proposed by the House and $11,000,000 as proposed by the 
Senate.

                          energy conservation

      The conference agreement rescinds $49,628,000 from Energy 
Conservation, instead of $59,928,000 as proposed by the House 
and $48,628,000 as proposed by the Senate. The managers agree

      The conference agreement does not include a general 
reduction in transportation programs, as proposed by the 
Senate, but has replaced that rescission with reductions of 
$500,000 for alternative fuels activities, excluding Federal 
fleet purchases, and $500,000 for electric and hybrid vehicles.
      The managers agree that the Department of Energy should 
ensure that all the remaining, available funds for Federal 
fleet vehicle purchases of alternatively fueled vehicles should 
be used for a well-balanced program which includes both 
original equipment manufactured vehicles and converted 
vehicles. The Department should concentrate its limited 
resources on getting these vehicles widely spread across all 
non-Defense Federal agencies. The long-term viability of the 
program depends on participation by all Federal agencies. The 
Department of Defense funds its own program for alternatively 
fueled vehicle purchases. The funds currently available to the 
Department of Energy should concentrate on the other agencies. 
None of the funds available from fiscal year 1995 or from prior 
year appropriations should be used for the purchase of 
alternatively fueled vehicles for the Department of Defense. 
Further, all Federal agencies should be encouraged to budget 
for future alternatively fueled vehicle purchases in their own 
budget requests.
      The managers expect that the rescission for the 
weatherization assistance program should not interfere with the 
adoption of the new distribution formula. The new formula 
should be applied and this rescission should then be assessed 
against each State in the same proportion as the funds were 
distributed under the new formula.
      The managers agree that the many new programs funded in 
fiscal year 1995 and proposed for funding in fiscal year 1996, 
through the climate change action plan, should not be protected 
at the expense of successful, ongoing programs.

      The managers have restored $19.4 million of the funds 
proposed for rescission by the House to begin construction of 
the National Museum of the American Indian Cultural Resources 
Center in Suitland, Maryland. This will bring the total federal 
contribution to date for this project to $27.8 million 
including all planning and design costs.
      While the managers are sensitive of the need to provide 
for the adequate storage and conservation needs of the National 
Museum of the American Indian collection, the managers are 
concerned about the total operating and construction costs 
associated with the Custom House facility in New York, the 
Cultural Resource Center in Maryland and the proposed Mall 
Museum. The managers encourage the Smithsonian to seek non-
Federal funding to assist with the construction of the Suitland 
facility and further urge the Smithsonian to work with the 
House and Senate Appropriations Committees to reduce the scope 
and cost of the resource center.
      The managers also direct the Smithsonian to develop 
additional cost scenarios for the proposed Mall facility, 
including downsizing the museum building and decreasing the 
amount of Federal appropriations.
      The managers urge the Smithsonian to name an independent 
board to review the Institutions complete collections. The 
Smithsonian currently owns or leases 40 storage facilities to 
house the 138 million objects in its collections. Providing 
adequate and appropriate space for these collections emerges 
repeatedly as the most critical collections management 
priority. Because of the severe lack of adequate space, objects 
are stored in potentially dangerous conditions. In light of 
current budget constraints the managers believe it is prudent 
for the Smithsonian to begin to evaluate all its collections 
with a view towards possible downsizing of the collections as 
one means to address the storage problems.
      Of the $375,000 currently available for planning of the 
National Air and Space Museum Extension, $275,000 is rescinded. 
The managers continue to have serious concerns regarding the 
federal government's ultimate responsibility for costs 
associated with the Smithsonian's involvement in this project. 
The managers understand that construction costs for this 
project will be financed through a combination of state and 
local funding, including bonds and an interest-fee loan. Prior 
to appropriating additional planning dollars for this project, 
the managers require more detailed information and binding 
commitments regarding the revised scope of the project and how 
it will be financed. Documentation of estimated operating costs 
will be necessary in order for the managers to make an informed 
decision on future funding. It is the managers intention that 
no federal funds will be appropriated for the construction of 
this facility.

subsequent annual operating expenses. This information should 
be transmitted in writing to the Committee for approval using 
established reprogramming procedures.

      The conferees encourage the Labor Department to consider 
closing Job Corps centers with persistently poor performance to 
offset increased costs necessary in subsequent years to 
complete opening of new centers.
      The conferees note that $184,788,000 of the 1995 summer 
youth funds were provided as an add-on in the fiscal 1995 bill, 
over the amount originally provided in fiscal year 1994. These 
supplemental funds are available July 1, 1995. Given the 
uncertainty over fiscal year 1996 appropriations due to 
extremely tight budget constraints, the Labor Department should 
not discourage project sponsors from reserving these funds for 
the 1996 summer program.
      The conference agreement for JTPA pilots and 
demonstrations includes $1,400,000 for the Microenterprise 
Grants program and $2,500,000 for the American Samoan 
employment and training program. For microenterprise grants, 
the agreement is sufficient to fund continuation costs. For the 
American Samoan program, priority should be given to continuing 
activities of a State agency with a proven track record 
involving American Samoan job training.

            community service employment for older americans

      Rescinds $14,440,000 as proposed in both the House and 
Senate bills.

     state unemployment insurance and employment service operations

      Rescinds $20,000,000 for one-stop career centers as 
proposed by the Senate, instead of $12,000,000 as proposed by 
the House, and reduces the limitation on trust funds by 
$67,700,000 as proposed by the Senate instead of $47,700,000 as 
proposed by the House.

                  Employment Standards Administration

                         salaries and expenses

      Deletes rescission of $19,572,000 proposed by the House. 
The Senate included no rescission for this account. The 
conference agreement includes bill language in section 602 
under General Provisions related to the proposed ergonomics 
standards.

                       Bureau of Labor Statistics

                         salaries and expenses

      Rescinds $700,000 instead of $1,100,000 as proposed by 
the Senate. The House included no rescission for this account.

                           general provision

      Inserts a general provision (section 602) that prohibits 
the Occupational Safety and Health Administration from 
promulgating or issuing any proposed or final standard or 
guideline with respect to ergonomic protection but permits the 
agency to conduct any peer-reviewed risk assessment activity 
regarding ergonomics.
      Deletes a Department of Labor general provision proposed 
by the Senate that would have rescinded $8,975,000 throughout 
the Department for compliance assistance and enforcement 
activities. The House included no similar provision.

      The conferees intend that the agency may use $3,000,000 
of funds appropriated for the National Health Service Corps for 
State offices of rural health. The conferees intend that 
$3,000,000 of the funds rescinded come from field placements 
rather than recruitment activities.
      The conferees intend that $300,000 of the Native Hawaiian 
health care funding shall be made available for the 
administrative grant and that of the funds remaining, priority 
shall be given to the health systems network and scholarship 
program in that order.
      The conferees are agreed that the $1,500,000 in remaining 
funding for the Pacific Basin initiative is to be used only for 
the continuation costs of students currently receiving 
assistance in the medical officer training program. Upon 
completion of the training of the current cohort of students, 
the training program will be terminated. The conferees are 
agreed that the portion of the program which supports projects 
to build capacity and improve health services and systems is 
terminated.
      The conferees encourage the agency to use the remaining 
funds in the rural health outreach program consistent with the 
priorities indicated in the 1995 appropriations bill reports.
      The conferees intend that rural telemedicine initiatives 
continue to be given high priority in the rural research 
program.

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$10,000,000 in 1995 funding for extramural facility 
construction and renovation instead of $20,000,000 as proposed 
by the House. The Senate bill contained no similar provision. 
The conferees intend that $2,500,000 of the remaining 
$10,000,000 in funding be allocated to qualified regional 
primate centers as originally indicated in the 1995 
appropriations bill conference report.

                        buildings and facilities

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$60,000,000 in fiscal year 1995 and prior year funds for 
intramural research construction projects that are no longer 
anticipated to be built. The House proposed a $50,000,000 
rescission and the Senate proposed a $79,289,000 rescission.

      The conference agreement includes a provision permitting 
all remaining funding for the Native Hawaiian Alaska Native 
Culture and Arts Development program to be awarded to a project 
in Alaska. The rescission for the Byrd Honors Scholarship 
program is less than proposed by the House and Senate bills 
because funds were obligated prior to the meeting of the 
conference. The rescission for the Law School Clinical program 
is less than provided in either the House or Senate bill due to 
new Departmental estimates which indicate the cost of non-
competing continuations is greater than previously reported to 
the subcommittees. The conference agreement contains language 
proposed in the House bill prohibiting the expenditure of funds 
for doctoral degree study under the Harris program. The 
rescission for Faculty Development Scholarships is greater than 
provided in either the House of Senate bill due to revised 
Departmental estimates of unobligated balances in the program.

                           howard university

construction, and the Senate proposed a rescission of 
$1,500,000 for the same program.

amounts made available for direct loans. Rescinds $264,000, 
instead of $322,000 as proposed by the House and Senate, for 
administrative expenses. The conference agreement reduced 
rescissions for administration because the balance of 1995 
funding was obligated prior to the meeting of the conference.

             education research, statistics and improvement

      Rescinds $30,925,000, instead of $55,250,000 as proposed

                         program administration

      Deletes language proposed by the Senate that would have 
rescinded $4,424,000. The House bill included no similar 
provision.
                           general provision

                  federal direct student loan program

      Inserts a provision to rescind $61,000,000, instead of 
$47,000,000 as proposed by the House and $95,000,000 as 
proposed by the Senate, from funds available under section 
458(a) of the Higher Education Act for the administration of 
the William D. Ford Direct Loan Program. The conferees agree 
that this reduction should not adversely affect the Federal 
Family Education Loan Program and therefore direct the 
Department to continue to pay administrative cost allowances to 
all guaranty agencies consistent with its formally-stated 
policy for fiscal year 1995. The conferees direct the 
Department to notify the House and Senate Appropriations 
Subcommittees on Labor, Health & Human Services, and Education 
prior to exercising borrowing authority authorized by Section 
458(a) of the Higher Education Act.

                            Related Agencies

by the House and $26,360,000 as proposed by the Senate, from 
funds available to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in 
fiscal year 1996. The conference agreement rescinds 
$55,000,000, instead of $94,000,000 as proposed by the House 
and $29,360,000 as proposed by the Senate, from funds available 
to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in fiscal year 1997. 
The conferees direct, to the maximum extent possible, that 
taxpayer funds made available to the Corporation for Public 
Broadcasting shall be used to fund public radio and television 
stations which serve rural, underserved and unserved areas.

                       railroad retirement board

                     dual benefits payments account

      Rescinds $7,000,000 as proposed by the Senate, instead of 
$5,000,000 as proposed by the House.

                          striker replacements

      Deletes a general provision proposed by the House that 
would have prohibited the use of any funds in any 
appropriations act for fiscal year 1995 to issue, administer or 
enforce any executive order, or other rule or order, that 
prohibits Federal contracts with companies that hire permanent 
replacements for striking employees. The Senate included no 
similar provision.

                    Chapter VII.--Legislative Branch

proposed by the House and deleted by the Senate, of Capitol 
buildings funds provided to the Architect of the Capitol for 
converting and maintaining property and facilities at Fort 
Meade, MD for long-term storage requirements of the Library of

agree with the language in the Senate report which directs the 
Architect of the Capitol and Library of Congress to obtain 
approval from the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
before proceeding with the obligation of funds. The conferees 
believe that the remote book storage and retrieval design must 
be cost effective and applicable to the stated purposes of the 
need for off-site book storage.

                        senate office buildings

      The conference agreement rescinds $850,000 of funds

authorizes a separation incentive to GAO employees who retire

carrying out staffing reductions. The conferees have been 
advised that the intent is to use this authority to help 
achieve a balance between necessary staffing realignments and 
the maintenance of organizational skills and capabilities.

                         DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

                         military construction

      The conference agreement deletes language proposed by the 
Senate, and not addressed in the House bill, which contained 
rescissions totaling $230,834,000. This matter was addressed in 
the Conference Report accompanying H.R. 889.

                              CHAPTER VIII

           DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AND RELATED AGENCIES

                      Department of Transportation

                        office of the secretary

           Transportation Planning, Research, and Development

      The conference agreement deletes the House provision to 
rescind $1,293,000 from transportation planning, research, and 
development. The Senate bill contained no similar rescission.

                          Working Capital Fund

      The conference agreement lowers the fiscal year 1995 
obligation limitation for the working capital fund by 
$6,000,000 and includes a general provision (Sec. 801) 
rescinding those funds, instead of lowering the obligation 
limitation by $8,000,000 as proposed by the House and 
$4,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.
                        Payments to Air Carriers

                    (Airport and Airway Trust Fund)

      The conference agreement rescinds $5,300,000 in contract 
authority for payments to air carriers, as proposed by the 
Senate. The House bill contained no similar rescission. This 
rescission will have no effect on current air service 
contracts. The conference agreement also includes a provision 
proposed by the Senate that prohibits the Secretary of the 
Department of Transportation from entering into any contracts 
that extend beyond September 30, 1995, and deletes the proposed 
Senate provision that prohibited payments authorized under 
subchapter II of chapter 417, title 49, United States Code.

                              coast guard

                           Operating Expenses

      The conference agreement deletes the supplemental 
appropriation of $28,197,000 for Coast Guard operating expenses 
proposed by the House. These funds were intended to cover the 
incremental costs associated with Haitian and Cuban migrant 
interdiction activities during 1994. Funding of $28,297,000 for 
these expenses was included in the Emergency Supplemental 
Appropriations and Rescissions Act for the Department of 
Defense (Public Law 104-6).
      The conference agreement rescinds $4,300,000 in Coast 
Guard operating expenses instead of $6,440,000 as proposed by 
the House and $3,700,000 as proposed by the Senate. A 
comparison of the House and Senate proposals and the conference 
agreement follows:

rotation expenses.

              Acquisition, Construction, and Improvements

      HH-65 LTS-101 engine replacement.--The conferees agree 
not to rescind funds for this project due to its impact on 
Coast Guard operational missions such as search and rescue. 
However, the conferees note that these funds were provided in 
fiscal year 1991 for proof of concept evaluation of possible 
re-engining options for the HH-65 helicopter, due to severe 
reliability problems with the engine. That effort was later 
terminated when design changes improved the engine's 
performance. Since that time, the Coast Guard developed plans 
to use these funds for general purpose improvements to the 
existing LTS-101 engine gearbox. The conferees believe using 
funds for this new project constituted a significant change in 
the scope of a project, requiring Congressional approval 
through the formal reprogramming process.
      Night vision goggles reprogramming.--The conferees 
approve the reprogramming of funds from the cockpit voice and 
flight data recorders program to the night vision goggles 
program, as proposed by the Senate. These funds are no longer 
needed for the original program, and will be used instead to 
accelerate installation of night vision capability in Coast 
Guard aircraft. This capability is particularly important for 
search and rescue, drug interdiction, and maritime law 
enforcement missions.

                Environmental Compliance and Restoration

      The conference agreement rescinds $2,500,000 in 
``Environmental compliance and restoration'' instead of 
$3,500,000 as proposed by the House and $400,000 as proposed by 
the Senate. According to the Coast Guard, as of March 31, 1995, 
this appropriation had a total unobligated balance of 
$20,198,103. The conference agreement rescinds 12.4 percent of 
this amount.

                    federal aviation administration

                               operations

      The conference agreement rescinds $1,000,000 in operating 
expenses of the Federal Aviation Administration as proposed by 
the Senate. The House bill contained no similar rescission. The 
conference agreement deletes bill language proposed by the 
Senate repealing the set-aside in the Department of 
Transportation and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1995 
for permanent change of station moves for air traffic 
controllers.

                        Facilities and Equipment

                    (Airport and Airway Trust Fund)

      The conference agreement rescinds $24,850,000 from 
``Facilities and equipment'' instead of $69,825,000 as proposed 
by the House and $31,850,000 as proposed by the Senate. An 
additional rescission of $35,000,000 from this appropriation 
was contained in the recently-enacted Emergency Supplemental 
Appropriations and Rescissions Act for the Department of 
Defense (Public Law 104-6). This rescission had been included 
in the House version of H.R. 1158, which accounts for most of 
the difference between the House and Senate bills. A comparison 
of the House and Senate proposals and the conference agreement 
follows:

                 Research, Engineering, and Development

                    (Airport and Airway Trust Fund)

      The conference agreement rescinds $7,500,000 in 
unobligated balances from the FAA research, engineering, and 
development appropriation, as proposed by both the House and 
the Senate. The conferees agree that none of the reduction is 
to be allocated to human factors research or safety research.
                       Grants-In-Aid for Airports

                    (Airport and Airway Trust Fund)

      The conference agreement rescinds $2,094,000,000 in 
unused contract authority for grants-in-aid for airports, 
instead of $2,000,000,000 proposed by the Senate. The House 
bill contained no similar rescission. The agreement includes 
the rescission proposed by the Senate and, in addition, the 
$94,000,000 proposed for rescission in a Presidential message 
transmitted to the Congress on May 2, 1995. The entire amount 
of the rescission is above the obligation limitation placed on 
this appropriation by the Department of Transportation and 
Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1995 and is therefore not 
available for obligation during fiscal year 1995.

                     federal highway administration

                Limitation on General Operating Expenses

      The fiscal year 1995 obligation limitation for general 
operating expenses for the Federal Highway Administration is 
reduced by $54,550,000, instead of $45,950,000 is proposed by 
the Senate and $42,500,000 as proposed by the House. The 
conference agreement includes the following program 
rescissions:
                              LGOE programs

                                                    Conference agreement

      The conferees agree that the joint program officer should 
coordinate all ITS program activities and should have the 
flexibility to manage each of these reductions, notwithstanding 
where the funding may have been originally earmarked.

                          Federal-Aid Highways

                      (Limitation on Obligations)

                          (Highway Trust Fund)

      The conference agreement includes the rescission of 
$132,190,000 in contract authority for the federal-aid highways 
program instead of $70,140,000 as proposed by the House and 
$123,590,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference 
agreement provides for the rescission of the following 
programs:
                                                    Conference agreement
Applied research and technology.........................    -$27,640,000
Congestion pricing pilot program........................     -50,000,000
Limitation on general operating expenses................     -54,550,000

      The conferees have agreed to rescind $50,000,000 from the 
congestion pricing pilot program as proposed by the Senate. The 
House bill contained no similar rescission.
      The conferees agree not to rescind $139,948,000 in 
contract authority for highway demonstration projects provided 
in Public Laws 97-424 and 100-17, as proposed by the Senate. 
The House bill contained no similar rescissions.
      Ellis Island Bridge.--The conferees agree to make 
available for other parkways and park highways under the 
Federal Lands program the $15,000,000 set aside for the Ellis 
Island Bridge as proposed by the House.

                          Federal-Aid Highways

                          (Highway Trust Fund)

      The conference agreement deletes the Senate provision to 
rescind $690,074 of contract authority from Public Law 100-17. 
The House bill contained no similar rescission.
                        Emergency Relief Program

                          (Highway Trust Fund)

      The conferees agree to rescind $100,000,000 in emergency 
relief, instead of $50,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and 
$351,000,000 as proposed by the House.

             national highway traffic safety administration

                     Highway Traffic Safety Grants

                          (Highway Trust Fund)

      The conference agreement deletes the Senate provision to 
rescind $20,000,000 in contract authority from the highway 
traffic safety grants program. The House bill contained no 
similar rescission.
                    federal railroad administration

                      Office of the Administrator

      The conferees agree to include language permitting the 
Office of the Administrator to transfer recoveries received 
from section 511 loan guarantees. Both the House and the Senate 
bills included this provision.

                 Northeast Corridor Improvement Program

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$9,707,000 from the Northeast Corridor Improvement Program. The 
House and Senate bills contained identical provisions to 
rescind $7,768,000. The Department of Transportation identified 
an additional $1,939,000 of unobligated balances that are being 
held as a contingency for litigation in connection with station 
work done in the 1980s and not expected to be required in 
fiscal year 1995.

       National Magnetic Levitation Prototype Development Program

                          (Highway Trust Fund)

      The conference agreement rescinds $250,000,000 in 
contract authority for the national magnetic levitation 
(maglev) prototype development program as proposed by the 
Senate. The House bill contained no similar rescission. The 
maglev funds are not available for obligation due to annual 
obligation limitations.

                     federal transit administration

                     Transit Planning and Research

      The conferees agree to rescind $7,000,000 for transit 
planning and research, instead of $8,800,000 as proposed by the 
House. The Senate bill contained no similar rescission. The 
conferees direct the Federal Transit Administration to reduce 
expenditures for unnecessary and lower priority programs, such 
as ``Coming and Going'', other transit education programs and 
the transit ambassadors program, and to limit expenditures for 
``livable communities'' to no more than $350,000 in fiscal year 
1995.
      The conferees reiterate their support for the important, 
ongoing planning and research activities included in the fiscal 
year 1995 Department of Transportation and Related Agencies 
Appropriations Act and direct the Federal Transit 
Administration to make available immediately the following 
amounts:

Advanced transportation systems and electric vehicle 
    technology..........................................      $2,500,000
Inertial navigation technology for transit vehicles.....         500,000
Research on large circuit breakers and switch gear......         750,000
Fuel cell transit bus program...........................       2,500,000
Team transit............................................         500,000
Criteria and cost-benefit studies.......................         200,000

      The conferees direct the Federal Transit Administration 
to allocate $1,000,000 of the funds made available for the 
Advanced Transportation Systems and Electric Vehicle Technology 
Program to the Advanced Lead-Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC). 
This is the second and final phase of funding for the 
consortium and will enable the ALABC to place prototype, 
advanced valve-regulated lead-acid batteries in electric bus 
facilities for inservice testing and demonstration.
                          Discretionary Grants

                      (Limitation on Obligations)

                          (Highway Trust Fund)

      The conference agreement includes rescissions of 
$33,911,500 in unobligated balances from the Federal Transit 
Administration's discretionary grants, instead of $67,293,000 
as proposed by the Senate and $131,651,000 as proposed by the 
House.
      The conferees have agreed not to rescind any new start or 
bus funds that were made available in fiscal year 1993. Public 
Law 102-388 provided that such discretionary transit funds 
shall be available for obligation through the end of fiscal 
year 1995. The conferees also agreed not to rescind unallocated 
bus and bus facilities funds made available in fiscal year 
1995.
      The conference agreement rescinds, without prejudice, the 
following amounts made available before fiscal year 1993:

Section 3 new starts:
        Fiscal year 1991:
            Cleveland Dual Hub..........................     -$2,230,000

                       Mass Transit Capital Fund

                (Liquidation of Contract Authorization)

                          (Highway Trust Fund)

      The conference agreement includes an appropriation of 
$350,000,000 in liquidating cash for mass transit capital 
programs. The Federal Transit Administration has identified a 
$350,000,000 shortfall in this account due to an increased pace 
of obligation and outlays this year and insufficient 
reestimates of liquidating cash in prior years. This 
appropriation does not score as new discretionary budget 
authority under the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990.

                           General Provisions

      The conference agreement includes language (Section 801) 
that rescinds $6,000,000 from the working capital fund and 
limits the fiscal year 1995 obligational authority to no more 
than $87,000,000. The Senate proposed to rescind $4,000,000 and 
limit obligational authority to no more than $89,000,000. The 
House proposed to rescind $8,000,000 and limit obligational 
authority to no more than $85,000,000.
      The conference agreement includes language (Section 802) 
that rescinds $15,000,000 for fiscal year 1995 civilian and 
military compensation and benefits and other administrative 
expenses, instead of $10,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and 
$20,000,000 as proposed by the House. In making this reduction, 
the conferees agree that the Department is to reduce each modal 
administration (except for the Maritime Administration) by an 
amount equal to its pro-rata share of staffing and 
administrative resources. Further, the Department is to report 
to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations the 
amounts reduced, by account, not later than fifteen days after 
the enactment of this Act.
      The conference agreement includes a technical correction 
(Section 803) to the fiscal year 1994 Department of 
Transportation and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (Public 
Law 103-122) regarding the availability of transit funds.
                               CHAPTER IX

                          Independent Agencies

           advisory commission on intergovernmental relations

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees deny $500,000 in supplemental funding for 
the Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (ACIR) 
as proposed by the Senate. The conferees agree that the 
Committees may entertain an increase in funding for ACIR should 
a FY 1996 budget amendment be submitted.

                    general services administration

                         Federal Buildings Fund

                  Christopher Columbus Research Center

      The conferees included this provision which was in both 
the House and Senate passed bills. The available funds will be 
paid to the Christopher Columbus Research Center in Baltimore, 
Maryland, for space, equipment, and facilities related to 
seafood research.

                     office of personnel management

  Government Payment for Annuitants, Employee Life Insurance Benefits

      The conferees included this provision, which was 
requested by the President and which was in both the House and 
Senate passed bills. This will allow an additional $9,000,000 
for the Government's contribution to basic life insurance 
premium payments for Federal retirees under 65 years of age. 
This is a technical adjustment in a mandatory program due to an 
inaccurate estimate on the part of the Administration.

                       Department of the Treasury

                          departmental offices

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees have agreed to eliminate FTE floors on 
certain Treasury activities, as proposed by the House and 
requested by the President.
      The conferees agree with the Senate position that the 
$100,000 rescission to the Departmental Offices appropriation 
may be applied at the discretion of the Secretary.

                Federal Law Enforcement Training Center

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree to provide $11,000,000 to the Federal 
Law Enforcement Training Center to partially offset the cost of 
FY 1996 operations. This is consistent with the President's 
Budget, which proposes to transfer unobligated balances with 
FLETC construction to this account to offset FY 1996 
appropriations. With this change, the conferees agree to regard 
the FY 1996 appropriation request to be $36,428,000, for a 
total program level of $47,228,000.
      The conferees have agreed to allow FLETC to provide 
short-term medical services to students, as proposed by the 
House and requested by the President.

      Acquisition, Construction, Improvements and Related Expenses

      The conferees have agreed to terminate the construction 
of a permanent facility at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and to 
rescind $11,000,000 to offset FLETC Salaries and Expenses in FY 
1996.

                      financial management service

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree with the Senate position that the 
$160,000 rescission to the Financial Management Service 
appropriation may be applied at the discretion of the 
Commissioner.

                       bureau of the public debt

                     Administering the Public Debt

      The conferees agree to rescind $1,500,000. This 
rescission was included in both the House and Senate passed 
bills.

                           united states mint

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees included a provision which was requested by 
the President and included in both the House and Senate passed 
bills. This change will allow the Mint to use funds provided 
for facility improvements to be used for coin production if 
demand requires increased production.

                        internal revenue service

                          Information Systems

      The conferees agree to rescind $1,490,000. This 
rescission was included in both the House and Senate passed 
bills.
      The conferees have agreed with the Senate position to 
deny lowering the amount dedicated to Tax Systems Modernization 
from $650,000,000 to $640,000,000, as proposed by the House.

                        Administrative Provision

      The conferees included a provision which was included in 
both the House and Senate passed bills. This provision allows 
the IRS to use up to $119,000,000 in fees collected annually 
for operations.

    Executive Office of the President and Funds Appropriated to the 
                               President

                         the white house office

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree with the Senate position that the 
$171,000 rescission to the White House Office appropriation may 
be applied at the discretion of the President.

                     federal drug control programs

                        Special Forfeiture Fund

      The conferees agree with the Senate's technical 
adjustment making $13,200,000 available for Customs 
interdiction activities through a General Fund appropriation. 
The conferees direct that all of these resources be used to 
fund ``Operation Hardline'', the Customs initiative directed at 
making ports of entry along the Southern border safer and 
narcotics smuggling more difficult.

                          Independent Agencies

                    general services administration

                         Federal Buildings Fund

      The conferees agree to rescind a total of $580,412,000 
from the Federal Buildings Fund instead of $136,593,000 as 
proposed by the House and $1,894,840,000 as proposed by the 
Senate, as follows:

               Food and Drug Administration Consolidation

      The conferees agree to rescind $228,000,000 in funds 
previously appropriated for the consolidation of the Food and 
Drug Administration (FDA), instead of no rescission as proposed 
by the House and $284,650,000 as proposed by the Senate. This 
rescission affects only the Montgomery County, Maryland phase 
of the FDA consolidation.
      The conferees agree that this rescission should not 
prejudice future efforts at consolidation and restructuring in 
Montgomery County, Maryland. The conferees note that there is 
considerable congressional concern and interest in both the 
restructuring and the consolidation of FDA. The conferees 
support the concept of FDA consolidation in Montgomery County, 
Maryland, in accordance with Public Law 101-635, the FDA 
Revitalization Act of 1990, and Conference Report 102-919 to 
accompany the FY 1993 Treasury, Postal service, and General 
Government Appropriations Act, but believe that any future FDA 
restructuring may present opportunities for downsizing the next 
phase of FDA consolidation. The conferees urge FDA to work with 
the General Services Administration to create a more cost 
effective site and construction plan for this phase of 
consolidation in order that future consolidation may continue.

                     Tampa, Florida U.S. Courthouse

      The conferees agree to rescind $5,994,000 from funds 
previously appropriated for the U.S. Courthouse in Tampa, 
Florida. This is the amount identified by the GSA during its 
Time Out and Review process.
      While the conferees agree that this reduction should not 
affect the completion of the planned project, should additional 
funds be required, GSA should submit a reprogramming to the 
Committees on Appropriations of the House and Senate.

                           Operating Expenses

      The conferees agree to no rescission from the Operating 
Expenses account as proposed by the Senate instead of 
$2,065,000 as proposed by the House.
      The conferees are very pleased with the General Services 
Administration's (GSA's) rapid response to the tragic bombing 
of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, 
Oklahoma, and commend GSA employees for their efforts in this 
area. Additionally, the conferees note with pleasure that, in 
response to a request from the Committees on Appropriations, 
the GSA provided the conferees with timely and extensive 
information on the construction and repair and alteration 
projects considered for rescission in both the House and 
Senate-passed rescission packages.

                          Telecommuting Center

      The funds previously specified in Public Law 103-329 for 
the flexiplace work telecommuting center project in Southern 
Maryland are to be transferred to the Charles County Community 
College to complete the establishment of the two additional 
telecommuting centers in Southern Maryland. This is in 
recognition of the results of the interim report to the 
Congress on Federal Interagency telecommuting Centers which 
show that the Southern Maryland project, developed and operated 
by the Charles County Community College, resulted in the 
highest utilization rate and lowest cost per user of any 
telecommuting demonstration project, and the demonstrated 
efficiencies of the private sector to accomplish and expand 
developmental projects in the most timely and cost effective 
manner.

                      Federal Election Commission

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree to rescind $1,396,000 from FEC's 
salaries and expenses, instead of $2,792,000 as proposed by the 
House. The conferees also agree to the FEC's request to carry 
over $20,000 of FY 1994 unobligated balances for use in FY 
1995. The conferees note that, since 1992, FEC has received an 
increase of 37 percent in its annual appropriations and that 
the total FY 1995 revised appropriations for FEC in the amount 
of $25,730,000 represents an increase of 9 percent over the FY 
1994 appropriated level. Within this amount, the conferees 
expect FEC to fulfill its commitment, as expressed before the 
House Appropriations Committee on March 1, 1995, to spend not 
less than $972,000 on computer modernization and electronic 
filing initiatives in FY 1995. The conferees further direct the 
FEC to complete strategic plans, including both a requirements 
and cost-benefit analysis, on (1) internal ADP modernization 
efforts and (2) electronic filing and provide these plans to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than 
August 1, 1995.

                     Merit Systems Protection Board

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree with the report language detailed in 
the Senate Report accompanying H.R. 1158 and reiterate the 
intent of that language in this statement of the managers.
      Congressional oversight and the work of the General 
Accounting Office have raised the conferees' concern over the 
direction, in recent years, of the U.S. Merit Systems 
Protection Board. In particular the conferees believe the 
statutory accountability and responsibility of the MSPB 
Chairman must be more adequately described to ensure the proper 
operation of the agency. Concern for the accountability of the 
MSPB Chairman to Congress necessitates the use of this vehicle 
to reiterate the intent of the statute.
      The second sentence of the language at 5 USC 1203(a) and 
the first sentence of section 1204(j) shall be construed as the 
official named therein to include authorities of the 
predecessor official described at 5 USC 1104(a)(3) up to the 
word ``except'' in said paragraph and section 1104(a), 
paragraph (4) in its entirety prior to amendment by P.L. 94-
454, Title II, sec. 201(a), October 13, 1978, 92 Stat. 1120. It 
is the intent of the conferees that this interpretation shall 
be used to expand only, and not derogate from, the authorities 
and responsibilities of the official named at 5 USC 1203(a) set 
forth in existing law.

                     Office of Personnel Management

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree to rescind $3,140,000. This 
rescission was included in both the House and Senate passed 
bills. This rescission is from amounts appropriated in FY 1995 
for OPM training and from its Office of International Affairs.

                           General Provisions

      Section 901. The conferees agree to changes affecting 
availability pay for criminal investigators in certain Offices 
of Inspectors General as proposed by the Senate. This was 
originally identified in the Senate bill as Section 2002.
      Section 902. The conferees agree to extend Law 
Enforcement Availability Pay to Customs pilots. This was 
originally identified in the Senate bill as section 2005.
      Section 903. The conferees have included a new general 
provision allowing agencies to exceed estimates of travel 
expenses in the event of emergency requirements.
      The conferees agree to delete Section 2003 and Section 
2004 of the Senate bill.
                               CHAPTER X

Departments of Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development, and 
                          Independent Agencies

                          INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

                  Federal Emergency Management Agency

                            Disaster Relief

      The conferees propose a supplemental appropriation for 
fiscal year 1995 of $3,350,000,000, a decrease of 
$2,010,000,000 below the House level and an increase of 
$1,450,000,000 above the Senate level. In his February 6, 1995 
messages, the President requested $6,700,000,000 for disaster 
relief activities. When these additional 1995 funds are added 
to those funds provided in the Disaster Relief Contingency 
Fund, which becomes available for obligation on October 1, 
1995, the conferees have met the President's request.
      The conferees agree that the additional funds made 
available in fiscal year 1995 are more than sufficient to meet 
ongoing and anticipated disaster relief requirements well into 
fiscal year 1996, including the most recent disaster operations 
resulting from extraordinary rains and hail during May 1995 in 
Louisiana, as well as numerous other declared disasters in some 
40 states.
      While the conferees remain committed to adequately fund 
necessary disaster assistance, the mounting cost and number of 
declared disasters remains a difficult question which must be 
addressed. The conferees are further concerned that FEMA 
disaster assistance policies need to be applied fairly and 
consistently to all regions hit by disasters. Specific 
questions have been raised regarding FEMA policies for those 
disasters occurring as a result of or directly attributable to 
a previously identified preexisting condition. The conferees 
thus direct FEMA to report to Congress within 90 days of 
passage of this Act on, 1) its current policies in this regard; 
2) how these policies were applied in making eligibility 
determinations in Lead, South Dakota and Ventura, California; 
and 3) its recommendations for appropriate policy changes in 
this area.

               Disaster Relief Emergency Contingency Fund

      The conferees propose a supplemental appropriation of 
$3,350,000,000 for a disaster relief emergency contingency 
fund, an increase of $3,350,000,000 above the level proposed by 
the House and a decrease of $1,450,000,000 below the level 
proposed by the Senate. This contingency fund will be available 
beginning October 1, 1995, and is provided once the President 
has made a specific request for a specific amount, and 
designates such amount as an emergency requirement pursuant to 
law. The conferees believe such a contingency fund will make it 
possible to continue mandated disaster relief requirements, 
such as ongoing obligations associated with the 1994 Northridge 
earthquake, while at the same time ensuring adequate 
Congressional oversight of these funds.

                     National Flood Insurance Fund

      The conferees have proposed a transfer of $331,000 for 
administrative costs from the flood insurance fund to the 
``Salaries and Expenses'' appropriation, and a transfer of 
$5,000,000 from the flood insurance fund to the ``Emergency 
Management Planning and Assistance'' appropriation. The House 
had included no such transfers in its bill while the Senate had 
proposed both items as requested in the President's February 6, 
1995 messages. The conferees agree that these funds are needed 
to enable the Agency to initiate flood mitigation activities 
authorized by the National Flood Insurance Reform Act of 1994.

                              CORPORATIONS

                 Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation

                          bank enterprise act

      Provides $36,000,000 for eligible activities authorized 
under the Bank Enterprise Act (BEA) of 1991. The Senate's 
proposed rescission of $88,000,000 from the Community 
Development Financial Institutions Fund Account would have left 
approximately $36,000,000 to implement this new agency. Instead 
of creating a new agency such as CDFI, the conferees agree to 
accomplish the same goal of promoting community-based financial 
institutions through the incentive program authorized under the 
BEA. Under the original fiscal year 1995 appropriation of 
$125,000,000, approximately one-third would have been available 
for this same incentive program. The Chairman of the FDIC is 
granted authority to operate this activity as authorized by the 
BEA.

                     Department of Veterans Affairs

                     veterans health administration

                              Medical Care

      Inserts language rescinding $50,000,000 of fiscal year 
1995 medical care funds and exempting such funds from any 
restrictions on personnel compensation and benefits 
expenditures, instead of language rescinding $50,000,000 from 
medical care, reducing the funds earmarked for the equipment 
and land and structures object classifications by $20,000,000, 
and decreasing the funds restricted for personnel compensation 
and benefits by $30,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
rescission is consistent with the Department's latest estimate 
of savings in fiscal year 1995 salary costs. The VA's fiscal 
year 1996 budget justifications estimated that $30,000,000 of 
the fiscal year 1995 appropriation restricted to salary costs 
would not be utilized for such purposes. The VA now estimates 
that $50,000,000 will be saved. The conferees have agreed to 
language that exempts all fiscal year 1995 medical care funds 
from personnel compensation and benefits restrictions in the 
event that salary savings are more than $50,000,000.

                      departmental administration

                      Construction, Major Projects

      Rescinds $31,000,000 of major construction funds, instead 
of $50,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conferees agree 
that the rescission is to be taken from excess funds in the 
working reserve, and have reduced the amount proposed by the 
Senate based on the VA's latest estimate of available savings.

      Department of Housing and Urban Development Housing Programs

           National Homeownership Trust Demonstration Program

      Rescinds $50,000,000 as proposed by the House and Senate.

               Annual Contributions for Assisted Housing

      Rescinds $5,031,400,000 from annual contributions for 
assisted housing, instead of $5,733,400,000 as proposed by the 
House and $3,721,289,000 as proposed by the Senate, including:
            $700,600,000 from the development or acquisition 
        cost of public housing from fiscal year 1995 and prior 
        year unobligated balances, including $80,000,000 from 
        public housing for Indian families;
            $1,956,000,000 from rental assistance under the 
        Section 8 existing housing certificate program and the 
        housing voucher program, of which, $100,000,000 shall 
        be from new programs and $350,000,000 from pension fund 
        rental assistance as provided in Public Law 103-327. 
        The remaining funding level will allow $300,000,000 for 
        the Secretary's Economic Development Initiative, and in 
        addition, public housing relocation and replacement 
        needs, litigation settlements or court orders, 
        amendments to continue assistance for participating 
        families, and the implementation of ``mixed 
        population'' plans for developments housing primarily 
        elderly residents;
            $815,000,000 from the modernization of existing 
        public housing projects pursuant to section 14 of the 
        United States Housing Act of 1937, including 
        $100,000,000 to eliminate funding for the Choice in 
        Management initiative, as proposed by the 
        Administration. If there are situations where housing 
        authorities already have placed funds under contract 
        which are now to be rescinded, the Department may use 
        its authority under the current modernization statute 
        (section 14(k)(1)) to provide funding for emergencies 
        which must be repaid from future modernization 
        allocations;
            $22,000,000 from unobligated balances of special 
        purpose grants;
            $148,300,000 from funds earmarked for Loan 
        Management Set-asides (LMSA);
            $15,000,000 from Family Unification as proposed by 
        the Administration;
            $30,000,000 from housing opportunities for persons 
        with AIDS (HOPWA) program, allowing program funding to 
        match the President's FY 1995 request of $156,000,000;
            $34,200,000 from amounts reserved for lease 
        adjustments as proposed by the Administration;
            $39,000,000 from recaptures as proposed by the 
        Administration;
            $70,000,000 from Section 8 counseling;
            $50,000,000 from amounts set-aside for service 
        coordinators, including Sections 674/675/676 and FSS 
        funding;
            $66,000,000 earmarked for Family Investment 
        Centers;
            $85,300,000 from the lead-based paint abatement 
        program. The Administration proposed rescinding 
        $80,000,000 from such funds; and
            $1,000,000,000 from unspecified balances for 
        incremental units, including unreserved and unobligated 
        program amounts totaling $3,477,600,000, remaining 
        Section 8 rental assistance totaling over $400,000,000, 
        and miscellaneous recaptures of previously obligated 
        funds, such as $1,506,600,000 available from public 
        housing development funds. The Secretary is required to 
        provide to the appropriate appropriations subcommittees 
        of the House and Senate a detailed operating plan 
        within 30 days of enactment to implement this 
        reduction.
      The conferees strongly support immediate changes in the 
Department's program policies to focus the use of available 
resources on activities which will yield a more efficient and 
competitive inventory of Federally subsidized low-income 
housing. Such measures include aggressive efforts to demolish 
failed housing developments and to provide local housing 
authorities greater flexibility to facilitate improvements in 
public housing. The conference agreement also focuses 
rescissions on funding activities such as new incremental units 
which, if obligated, would exacerbate budgetary shortfalls over 
the next several years.
      The conference agreement provides a deferral of 
$405,900,000 of preservation funds until September 30, 1995 to 
allow authorizing committees ample time to reformulate this 
program. The House proposed rescinding $465,100,000 from the 
program activity while the President's budget request had 
proposed rescinding $150,000,000.
      The conference agreement deletes a provision in the 
Senate-passed language which would have mandated continued 
processing of certain applications which met specific statutory 
deadlines. The conferees agree that the Department should have 
greater discretion in continuing such processing. It is the 
expectation of the conferees, however, that processing should 
not be suspended in cases where such an action would jeopardize 
on-going efforts to preserve these affordable housing units, 
particularly in cases where purchases by non-profits or by 
resident organizations are being developed.

  Assistance for the Renewal of Expiring Section and Subsidy Contracts

      Rescinds $1,177,000,000 of rental assistance for the 
renewal of expiring Section 8 subsidy contracts. The Senate had 
proposed the rescission of $1,050,000,000 from the Annual 
Contributions for Assisted Housing account and directed the 
Secretary to use excess Section 8 reserves of public housing 
authorities to make up this shortfall. The House proposed no 
rescission. In order to renew all expiring Section 8 subsidy 
contracts in fiscal year 1995, the conferees agree to shorten 
approximately one-half of fiscal year 1995 renewal contracts to 
two-year terms instead of three. In addition, the Secretary is 
directed to use an estimated $427,000,000 of Section 8 excess 
project reserves to fund remaining Section 8 contract renewal 
needs.

         Payments for Operation of Low-Income Housing Projects

      Rescinds no funding from this account as proposed by the 
Senate. The House had proposed a rescission of $404,000,000 
from this program activity to bring it down to the President's 
request for fiscal year 1995. The conferees acknowledge the 
difficulty of implementing a reduction in this account mid-
year, but also note that future reductions for this program 
activity are likely. Housing authorities, through more 
efficient management and implementation of upcoming 
reauthorization deregulation, must work diligently to prepare 
for possible lower funding levels in fiscal year 1996.

                   Severely Distressed Public Housing

      Rescinds no funding from this account as proposed by the 
Senate. The House had proposed rescinding $523,000,000 from 
this account. While these funds are permitted to go forward, 
the conferees note that it is possible that this activity may 
not be funded in fiscal year 1996. Also, approximately three-
fourths of the House rescission amount had been obligated by 
the time of conference and was unavailable for rescission.

            Drug Elimination Grants for Low-Incoming Housing

      Rescinds no funding from this account as proposed by the 
Senate. The House had proposed rescinding $32,000,000 from this 
program activity to return it to the fiscal year 1994 funding 
level of $265,000,000.

                           Youthbuild Program

      Rescinds $10,000,000 from the Youthbuild program. The 
House had proposed rescinding $38,000,000 to return program 
activity to last year's funding level of $40,000,000 while the 
Senate had proposed no rescission.

                     Housing Counseling Assistance

      Rescinds $38,000,000 as proposed by the House and Senate, 
returning this program activity to its fiscal year 1994 funding 
level of $12,000,000.

                         Flexible Subsidy Fund

      Rescinds $8,000,000 as proposed by the House. The Senate 
had proposed no rescission for this program activity.
                  nehemiah housing opportunities fund

      Rescinds $10,500,000 of remaining unobligated balances 
from the Nehemiah Housing Opportunities Fund. The House had 
proposed rescinding $19,000,000 and the Senate $17,700,000 from 
this account.

                          Homeless Assistance

                       homeless assistance grants

      Defers the availability of $297,000,000 of homeless 
assistance grants until September 30, 1995 as proposed by the 
House. The Senate did not propose a similar provision. The 
remaining appropriation of $823,000,000 available for all of 
fiscal year 1995 would match the fiscal year 1994 program 
funding level.

                   Community Planning and Development

                      community development grants

      Rescinds no funds from this account as proposed by the 
Senate. The House had proposed a rescission of $349,200,000 
from this program activity.

                       administrative provisions

      The conference agreement includes modifications proposed 
by the Senate to the public housing modernization program to 
permit greater flexibility in the use of these funds. For 
example, in places like Dallas, Houston, and Louisville, 
Federal modernization funds can help pay the cost of demolition 
of public housing that is beyond repair. This is the case in 
Houston, where the costs of demolishing Allen Parkway Village 
can be shifted from the city to the local PHA. The conferees 
agree to several technical changes that clarify that 
modernization funds are to be used only for public housing or 
the public housing portion of jointly-administered housing.
      Both the House- and the Senate-passed bills included 
provisions to eliminate one-for-one replacement requirements 
for public housing demolition or disposition applications 
approved prior to September 30, 1995. The conferees agree to 
the Senate language amended to exclude housing required to be 
replaced because of a court order or litigation settlement. The 
House language included this provision. The Department is urged 
to approve as quickly as possible qualified applications for 
demolition or disposition.
      The conferees agree to the Senate proposal allow public 
housing authorities to reuse certain recaptured Section 8 
rental assistance. The House bill contained no comparable 
provision.

                          INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

             Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board

                         salaries and expenses

      Rescinds $500,000, as proposed by both the House and the 
Senate. This rescission terminates the Board before members 
have sworn the oath of office and prior to expenditure of any 
funds, and is consistent with the rescission and termination 
proposal made by the President in the February 6, 1995 
messages.

              Community Development Financial Institutions

           community development financial institutions fund

                            program account

      Rescinds $124,000,000 from this account as proposed by 
the House. The Senate has proposed a rescission of $88,000,000. 
In order to limit the growth of government and achieve the same 
goals, the conferees agree to provide $36,000,000 to the 
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to implement Bank 
Enterprise Act (BEA) incentives to promote community-based 
financial institutions.

             Corporation for National and Community Service

       national and community service programs operating expenses

      Rescinds $210,000,000 of National and Community Service 
Programs Operating Expenses funds, instead of $416,110,000 as 
proposed by the House and $105,000,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. This action will permit the Corporation to maintain the 
fiscal year 1994 funding level of $365,000,000 in the current 
fiscal year. The conferees have agreed to add language to 
prohibit the remaining fiscal year 1995 appropriation from 
being used for national awards to Federal agencies. This action 
is taken to increase program participation by traditional 
private voluntary organizations such as the Girl Scouts, the 
American Red Cross, and the Future Farmers of America.

                    Environmental Protection Agency

                        research and development

      The conferees propose to rescind $14,635,000 of fiscal 
year 1995 appropriations, the same as proposed by the House and 
$5,000,000 more than that proposed by the Senate. In addition 
to the $3,635,000 proposed in the President's February 6, 1995 
messages for academic training ($1,000,000), neurotoxicity 
research ($700,000), health effects research ($600,000), and 
procurement savings ($1,335,000), the conferees have proposed 
to rescind $6,000,000 of funds appropriated in fiscal year 1995 
for the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program and 
$5,000,000 of unspecified reductions. The conferees expect the 
Agency to submit specific proposals, in a format consistent 
with normal reprogramming procedures, of where these 
unspecified reductions will occur within the research and 
development account.

                   abatement, control, and compliance

      The conferees propose to rescind $9,806,805 of fiscal 
year 1995 appropriations, an increase of $5,000,000 over the 
level proposed by the House and the same as proposed by the 
Senate. In addition to the rescissions of $3,141,805 for 
termination of the Clean Lakes program and $1,665,000 for 
procurement savings as proposed in the President's February 6, 
1995 messages, the conferees have proposed to rescind 
$5,000,000 from the Agency's ``green'' programs. The conferees 
agree that budget constraints require reduced spending in this 
area, and further agree that the agency should strongly 
consider the phase-out of those ``green'' programs, such as the 
``energy star buildings'' program, which are essentially 
identical to programs already offered by private enterprise or 
by other Federal or State agencies.
      Bill language has been included which stipulates that the 
Agency will not be required to site a supercomputer in the Bay 
City, Michigan vicinity as is required by current law.

                        buildings and facilities

      The conferees propose to rescind $83,000,000 of prior 
year appropriations, an increase of $58,000,000 over the level 
proposed by the House, and the same as proposed by the Senate. 
These funds are derived from appropriations made in fiscal 
years 1992 and 1993 for the EPA Center for Ecology Research and 
Training, a new laboratory which would add to the Agency's 
existing 39 such facilities. This proposed rescission will 
terminate further activities associated with the lab's 
development before significant sums are expended. The conferees 
note that sufficient funds remain in the buildings and 
facilities account to cover expected necessary ``close-out'' 
costs associated with the lab site, and direct the Agency to 
provide the House and Senate Appropriations Committees a 
specific plan and schedule for such close-out within 60 days of 
passage of this Act.

                     hazardous substance superfund

      The conferees propose to rescind $100,000,000 of fiscal 
year 1995 appropriations, an increase of $100,000,000 above the 
level proposed by the House and the same as proposed by the 
Senate. The conferees agree that while this proposed rescission 
is not expected to severely disrupt the program, it 
nevertheless will slow current program activities somewhat 
while the Congress works on reauthorizing and perhaps 
restructuring this expired program.

               water infrastructure/state revolving funds

      The conferees propose to rescind $1,302,200,000 of fiscal 
year 1995 and prior year appropriations, a decrease of 
$1,000,000 from the level proposed by the House and an increase 
of $60,105,000 above the level proposed by the Senate. Of the 
proposed $1,302,200,000 rescission, $1,299,000,000 had been 
appropriated in fiscal years 1994 and 1995 for distribution 
upon enactment of a safe drinking water state revolving fund. 
While this rescission should not be interpreted as opposition 
to the creation of such an SRF, the conferees acknowledge that 
fiscal realities make it difficult to provide large sums for 
programs which await authorization.
      The remaining $3,200,000 rescission is derived from funds 
appropriated in fiscal year 1995 for specific wastewater 
infrastructure improvements, and has been recommended for 
rescission in the President's February 6, 1995 messages.

                       administrative provisions

      The conferees adopted language included in the Senate 
bill which prevents the Agency from requiring that States adopt 
a centralized inspection and maintenance facility as part of 
their state implementation plan under the Clean Air Act, 
although the states retain the flexibility to adopt such a 
program should they desire.
      The conferees adopted identical language included in both 
the House and Senate bills which provides that no funds can be 
expended by the Environmental Protection Agency to impose or 
enforce any requirement that a State implement a trip reduction 
plan as part of their state implementation plan. Additional new 
language which stipulates that Section 304 of the Clean Air Act 
(regarding citizen suits) does not apply in cases where States 
choose not to implement such a trip reduction plan was also 
adopted by the conferees.
      The conferees adopted language contained in the Senate 
bill which prevents EPA from adding new sites to the National 
Priorities List during the balance of fiscal year 1995, unless 
such new site is specifically requested for listing by the 
Governor of the affected State, or unless Superfund legislation 
is reauthorized prior to the end of the fiscal year.
      The conferees carefully considered a provision to impose 
a moratorium on EPA Clean Air Act deadlines for state 
attainment plans and permitting programs and considered 
mandating full credit for decentralized inspection and 
maintenance programs. This legislation was deferred pending a 
review of EPA's actions in reviewing and approving applications 
by states for up to 100 percent credit where such states have 
submitted evidence of an effective test-and-repair program. The 
conferees strongly agree that EPA should defer imposition of 
sanctions against any state which is preparing, or has 
submitted an application to EPA for up to 100 percent 
compliance credit for their test-and-repair inspection and 
maintenance program. The conferees agree that a demonstration 
for up to 100 percent compliance credit may be submitted by a 
state with their SIP revision, and that such demonstration may 
require two years or two full cycles to complete. EPA should 
exercise flexibility in reviewing and approving each state's 
plan in this regard.
      EPA should seriously consider abandoning an inflexible 
standard that test-and-repair facilities are 50 percent as 
effective as test-only facilities and should grant test-and-
repair programs the credit, up to 100 percent, based on 
scientific evidence and/or data that supports the determination 
of additional credits.
      The conferees note that EPA issued regulations in 
November 1992 stating that in order to get more than 50 percent 
credit for a test-and-repair program, the state would have to 
demonstrate actual operating data that its program was more 
effective. States should be prepared to provide such data.
      In complying with the prohibition on use of funds for 
disapproval of a state implementation plan, the conferees agree 
that it would apply only in the case where only a 50 percent 
discount was applied by the agency, and not at any other 
percentage discount which the Agency may apply or if the state 
implementation plan was not in compliance with law on a basis 
other than inspection and maintenance.
      The conferees further agree that should EPA fail to 
demonstrate flexibility and reasonableness in responding to 
such state applications, further legislation will be enacted by 
Congress.
      No language was included regarding the Agency's 
responsibilities for the California Federal Implementation Plan 
as the matter was resolved earlier in Public Law 104-6.
             National Aeronautics and Space Administration

                  science, aeronautics and technology

      The conferees agree to rescind a total of $52,000,000, 
instead of $75,000,000 as proposed by the House and $68,000,000 
as proposed by the Senate.
      The conference agreement is as follows:

Earth Observing System..................................   -$17,000,000 
Hubble Telescope Mission................................     -5,000,000 
Regional Ecosystem Supercomputer........................     -3,000,000 
Hypersonics.............................................    -12,000,000 
Life and Microgravity...................................    -15,000,000.

      The conferees agree to impose no rescission in the area 
of academics. The conferees agree that the recent expansion of 
NASA funded educational programs, that expand opportunities and 
enhance diversity in the NASA sponsored research and education 
community--especially for the minority institutions and for 
socially and economically disadvantaged and disabled students, 
historically underrepresented in the Agency's research and 
education programs--are meritorious and should be supported. 
The conferees, however, note that such rapid and cumulative 
growth through incrementally funded, multi-year commitments 
will be very difficult to sustain during a period when overall 
NASA funding and employment will be reduced. NASA should 
undertake a review of all academic programs which includes 
revisions of its multi-year program plan in anticipation of 
such funding constraints with careful attention to the balance 
between the proportion of NASA's dollars received by minority 
institutions of higher education and other institutions of 
higher education.

                       construction of facilities

      The conferees agree to a rescission of $34,000,000 in 
prior years appropriations for construction of facilities 
instead of $27,000,000 as proposed by the House and $76,000,000 
as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement includes 
rescission of $27,000,000 which was appropriated in fiscal year 
1993 for construction of a facility for the Consortium for 
International Earth Science Information Network. In addition, 
the conference agreement includes rescission of $7,000,000 
which was appropriated in prior years for construction of a 
Rocket Engine Test Facility at the Lewis Research Center.

                            mission support

      The conferees agree to rescind $32,000,000 of fiscal year 
1995 funding instead of $1,000,000 as proposed by the House and 
$6,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement 
includes rescission of $1,000,000 for administrative aircraft, 
$10,000,000 for salaries and expenses (ROS), and $21,000,000 
for salaries and expenses savings.

             Space Flight, Control and Data Communications

      The conferees agree to rescind $20,000,000 from funds 
made available for the replacement orbiter for the Challenger. 
The President had proposed a rescission of $10,000,000 in his 
message of May 2, 1995. After this rescission, $23,448,844 will 
remain for this purpose.

                       administrative provisions

                    Clear Lake Development Facility

      The conferees agree to include an administrative 
provision which will enable the National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration to exercise an option to purchase the Clear Lake 
Development Facility, as modified for use as a Neutral Buoyancy 
Laboratory. The facility is currently being leased by NASA. It 
is the intention of the conferees that the cost of the facility 
as modified by the current owner (or contractor) and delivered 
completely modified to NASA, will be no more than $35,000,000.

                   Yellow Creek Facility, Mississippi

      The federal government has a long history of involvement 
in Yellow Creek, located near Iuka, Mississippi. The site, 
originally purchased by the Tennessee Valley Authority for use 
as a nuclear energy plant, was subsequently transferred to NASA 
after the nuclear energy plant's cancellation. NASA intended to 
use Yellow Creek to build the Advanced Solid Rocket Motor 
(ASRM) and, after its cancellation, instead committed to use 
the site to build nozzles for the Redesigned Solid Rocket Motor 
(RSRM). On May 2, 1995, due to its current budgetary 
constraints, NASA terminated the RSRM nozzle production effort 
at Yellow Creek. The bill language included by the conferees on 
the transfer of the NASA Yellow Creek facility reflects the 
most recent commitment made by the NASA Administrator to the 
Governor of the State of Mississippi. The major investment by 
the State of Mississippi in facilities and infrastructure to 
support Yellow Creek, in excess of $100,000,000, is a key 
factor in NASA's agreement to turn the site over to the State 
of Mississippi. The main elements of the agreement reached 
between NASA and the State of Mississippi, which the conferees 
expect to be adhered to by the two parties, are as follows:
            The Yellow Creek facility will be turned over to 
        the appropriate agency of the State of Mississippi 
        within 30 days of enactment of this Act. All of the 
        NASA property on Yellow Creek which the State of 
        Mississippi requires to facilitate the transfer of the 
        site transfers with the site to the State, subject to 
        the following exceptions anticipated by the conferees:
                    (1) Any property assigned to a NASA 
                facility other than Yellow Creek prior to May 
                2, 1995, but located at Yellow Creek, will be 
                returned to its assigned facility;
                    (2) Only those contracts for the sale of 
                NASA property at Yellow Creek signed by both 
                parties prior to May 2, 1995 shall be executed;
                    (3) Those items deemed to be in the 
                ``national security interest' of the federal 
                government shall be retained by NASA. The 
                national security clause shall be narrowly 
                construed and shall apply only in a limited 
                manner, consistent with established criteria 
                relating to national security interests. This 
                clause shall not be used to circumvent the 
                intent of this Act, which is to transfer the 
                site and all of its property, except as 
                otherwise noted, to the State of Mississippi; 
                and
                    (4) Other items of interest to NASA may be 
                retained by NASA with the consent of the State 
                of Mississippi.
      It is the expectation of the conferees that all other 
NASA personal property will transfer to the State of 
Mississippi. The conferees further expect facilities on the 
site not subject to the above provisions, such as the 
environmental lab, to be left as is.
            Any environmental remediation of Yellow Creek 
        necessary as a result of the activities of governmental 
        agencies, such as NASA, or quasi-governmental agencies, 
        such as the Tennessee Valley Authority, will be the 
        responsibility of the federal agency or quasi-federal 
        agency, including any successors and interests.
            Within thirty days of enactment of this Act, 
        $10,000,000 will be transferred from NASA to the 
        appropriate agency of the State of Mississippi.
            The site's environmental permits will become the 
        property of the State of Mississippi. NASA will provide 
        all necessary assistance in transferring these permits 
        to the State of Mississippi.

                      National Science Foundation

                      TITLE II--GENERAL PROVISIONS

                        emergency timber salvage

      The managers have included bill language (section 2001) 
that directs the appropriate Secretary to prepare, advertise, 
offer, and award salvage timber sale contracts utilizing 
emergency processes and procedures provided in the bill.
      The managers, in order to establish their expectation of 
performance have included salvage timber sale volume 
requirements in this statement. The managers have not included 
volume requirements directly in bill language but expect the 
Secretary concerned to reduce backlogged salvage volume and 
award additional salvage sale contracts to the maximum extend 
feasible. However, the managers underscore their intent that 
the salvage volume levels are not merely aspirational; each 
Secretary is expected to meet the volume levels specified 
herein.
      The managers, in cooperation with the authorizing 
committees of jurisdiction, have agreed to monitor the USDA and 
BLM progress toward meeting the salvage levels set out herein. 
The committees of jurisdiction will carefully assess the 
reports to determine whether or not the agencies have met the 
salvage levels put forward in the statement of the managers. 
Depending on performance, the need for volume targets will be 
reevaluated in future appropriations bills, beginning in FY 
1996.

                             Forest Health

      The managers note that the emergency forest health 
situation from fire, insect infestation and disease has 
approached epidemic levels. As a result, the backlog of dead 
and dying trees in National Forests and other public lands is 
substantial.
      In part, the severe risk of permanent damage to forest 
land necessitates removal of dead, dying, and salvage trees 
before greater damage occurs--including second phase fires 
which burn hotter and destroy land and streams. Once removal of 
salvage tress occurs, reforestation is required by the 
emergency salvage provision. Reforestation will facilitate 
regrowth of healthy forests that are less prone to fire damage, 
insect infestation, and disease.
      Much of this salvage volume must be removed within one 
year or less for the timber of retain maximum economic value, 
and to prevent future disasters from fire that can permanently 
damage forest land, eradicate wildlife, and ruin aquatic 
habitat. Therefore, the managers have included bill language to 
provide all necessary tools to expedite environmental 
processes, streamline, administrative procedures, expedite 
judicial review, and give maximum flexibility to the Secretary 
concerned in order to provide salvage timber for jobs, to 
improve forest health, and prevent future forest fires.
      The managers expect the agencies to implement available 
flexibility to achieve maximum returns and that agency 
personnel expeditiously process the environmental documentation 
needed to finalize emergency timber sales.

                             Volume Levels

      The managers have carefully reviewed the materials 
submitted by the Departments concerning the capability of the 
Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management to respond to the 
emergency nature of the forest health situation. For the Forest 
Service, the documents submitted indicate that the total 
merchantable salvage volume (dead and dying trees) in national 
forests exceeds 18.25 BBF. The Forest Service identified 12.68 
BBF of volume which is economically operable during the next 
two years, while still complying with basic forest land 
stewardship protection measures.
      Of particular interest in the Forest Service's assessment 
that 6.75 BBF of volume could be available during the next 
three years using the expedited procedures of this section, 
without violating the substantive requirements of existing 
environmental laws. This volume estimate was developed by 
Forest Service line managers and biologists. The Forest Service 
reports that there is a significant margin of error (+/-25%) in 
these estimates, and it is reasonable to expect that the 
volumes may increase somewhat as on-the-ground implementation 
gets underway. Given the margin of error in the estimates, it 
appears the Forest Service could meet the salvage volumes in 
the House bill without sacrificing the substantive objectives 
of all environmental laws. The Senate bill contained no sale 
volumes.
      The managers extended the provisions of this section 
through FY 1997, effectively making the program's duration 2.5 
years. Based on the capability statements by the Forest Service 
and similar representatives by the Bureau of Land Management, 
the managers expect that the procedures of this section will 
expedite the implementation of existing programmed salvage 
volumes and allow the Secretary of Agriculture to prepare, 
advertise, offer, and award contracts for an additional 
increment of salvage volume as follows: FY 1995--750 million 
board feet; FY 1996--1.5 billion board feet; FY 1997--1.5 
billion board feet. These programmed levels for the Forest 
Service are contained in the attachment to the April 25, 1995, 
letter to the Chairman of the House Resources Committee. 
Similarly, the managers expect an emergency timber salvage 
program from the Secretary of the Interior as follows: FY 
1995--115 million board feet; FY 1996--115 million board feet; 
FY 1997--115 million board feet. These numbers are within the 
range of achievement in an environmentally sound program. Each 
Secretary may exceed these salvage levels if field conditions 
demonstrate additional salvage opportunities.
      The managers have directed periodic reporting on the 
agencies' progress in implementing the procedures of this 
section in order to reassess their expectation concerning 
achievement of specified salvage volumes and agency 
performance. The managers expect that the committees of 
jurisdiction will remain actively involved in the monitoring of 
the emergency salvage program.

                                Process

      The managers intend that as the environmental processes 
are completed for individual sales, the Secretary concerned may 
choose among the completed combined documents to determine how 
sales should go forward.
      The bill language provides a process for judicial review 
of emergency salvage sales by the Federal District Courts. The 
managers provided this mechanism for legitimate concerns with 
agency actions. Automatic stays for 45 days are required 
pending the final decision on review of the record by the 
district court within that time period. Due to the exigency of 
the emergency salvage situation administrative appeals are 
waived.
      For emergency timber salvage sales, Option 9, and sales 
in Section 318 areas, the bill contains language which deems 
sufficient the documentation on which the sales are based, and 
significantly expedites legal actions and virtually eliminates 
dilatory legal challenges. Environmental documentation, 
analysis, testimony, and studies concerning each of these areas 
are exhaustive and the sufficiency language is provided so that 
sales can proceed.
      The managers are aware of the high cost, time, and 
personnel commitment needed to mark salvage trees individually. 
The managers also recognize the requirement for federal 
agencies to designate timber authorized for cutting. Federal 
agencies are directed to determine the extent to which the use 
of designation by description is practical and are further 
directed to use the most effective method of designation to 
prepare salvage timber sales.
      The emergency salvage provision clearly prohibits 
harvesting in National Wilderness Preservation System lands, 
roadless areas designated by Congress for wilderness study, and 
roadless areas recommended for wilderness designation in the 
most recent land management plan. Lands not specifically 
protected by the provision include prohibitions such as agency 
initiatives, timber sale screens, interim guidelines, 
settlement agreements, the CASPO Report, riparian areas covered 
by other initiatives, and any other area where the agencies 
restrict timber harvesting on their own accord.
      The bill also allows all salvage sales proposals in 
development on the date of enactment of this Act to be 
immediately brought into conformity with this, the emergency 
salvage provision.

                               Reporting

      The bill language directs the agencies to prepare a 
report by August 30, 1995, detailing the steps the agency is 
taking, and intends to take, to meet salvage timber sale 
volumes. The report shall also include a statement of the 
intention of the Secretary concerned with respect to the 
salvage volumes specified herein.
      The managers will carefully review the Administration's 
implementation of the salvage program, and, if found to be 
inadequate, will employ such actions as deemed necessary. Such 
actions might include, but are not limited to, reallocation 
within budget categories or other prioritizations to be 
determined by the Congress.

                                Option 9

      The managers have retained bill language added by the 
Senate that provides the Forest Service and Bureau of Land 
Management the authority to expedite timber sales allowed under 
the President's forest plan for the Pacific Northwest, commonly 
known as option 9. The managers are concerned that the 
administration has not made the necessary efforts to fulfill 
the commitment it made to the people of the region to achieve 
an annual harvest level of 1.1 billion board feet and have 
included bill language to assist the administration in this 
effort.
      On December 21, 1994, the Federal District Court issued 
an opinion upholding option 9 as valid under all present 
environmental laws. The managers wish to make clear that the 
bill language does not independently validate option 9 and does 
not restrict pending or future challenges.
      The managers have added bill language to eliminate the 
need for an additional environmental impact statement in order 
to speed up the issuance of a final 4(d) rule, which will 
provide expedited relief to thousands of nonfederal landowners 
in the region. The managers understand that the Secretary of 
the Interior is extending the comment period on the proposed 
Section 4(d) rule, and expect the Secretary to review carefully 
the extensive Special Emphasis Areas in Washington to assure 
regulatory relief for nonfederal lands, particularly in light 
of new owl population data on the Olympic Peninsula. As 
provided in bill language, the managers have agreed that no 
environmental impact statement will be required for the Section 
4(d) rule notwithstanding the outcome of pending litigation 
over Option 9. Finally, nothing in this provision is intended 
to prejudice the outcome of pending litigation over Endangered 
Species Act Section 9 prohibitions.

                         Released Timber Sales

      The bill releases all timber sales which were offered for 
sale beginning in fiscal year 1990 to the date of enactment 
which are located in any unit of the National Forest System or 
District of the Bureau of Land Management within the geographic 
area encompassed by Section 318 of the Fiscal Year 1990 
Interior and Related Agencies Appropriations Act. Included are 
all sales offered, awarded, or unawarded, whether or not bids 
have subsequently been rejected by the offering agency, with no 
change in original terms, volumes, or bid prices. The sales 
will go forward regardless of whether the bid bond from the 
high bidder has been returned, provided it is resubmitted 
before the harvesting begins. The harvest of many of these 
sales was assumed under the President's Pacific Northwest 
forest plan, but their release has been held up in part by 
extended subsequent review by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife 
Service. The only limitation on release of these sales is in 
the case of any threatened or endangered bird species with a 
known nesting site in a sale unit. In this case, the Secretary 
must provide a substitute volume under the terms of subsection 
(k)(3).
                           funds availability

      The conference agreement retains a Senate provision 
(section 2002) restricting funds availability to the current 
fiscal year unless otherwise stated. The House bill contained 
no similar provision.

         downward adjustments in discretionary spending limits

      The conferees agree to include a provision (section 2003) 
included in both the House and Senate bills that would reduce 
the discretionary spending limits by the savings resulting from 
this act for the fiscal years 1995 through 1998. The House bill 
also included an additional provision that would have made 
additional projected reductions by assuming that similar 
savings would be enacted in each of the next three fiscal 
years. The conferees recommend that spending limit adjustments 
for actions projected for the future should be made in 
appropriate legislative vehicles such as reconciliation bills. 
Also, the House bill included provisions that would appropriate 
the savings from the bill to a deficit reduction fund. By 
including the provision dealing with spending limit adjustments 
and the prohibition on the use of savings to offset tax cuts 
mentioned below, the intent of these House provisions is 
accommodated.

            prohibition on use of savings to offset deficit

    increases resulting from direct spending or receipts legislation

      The conference agreement includes a provision (section 
2004) included in both the House and Senate versions of the 
bill that would preclude the savings in this bill from being 
used for any tax reductions or other similar direct spending or 
receipts legislation.

               national korean war veterans armistice day

      The conference agreement inserts language (section 2005), 
not contained in the House or Senate bill, which designates 
July 27 of each year, until the year 2003, as ``National Korean 
War Veterans Armistice Day''.

                    assistance to illegal immigrants

      The conference agreement includes an amended House 
provision (section 2006) that prohibits any individual who is 
not lawfully in the United States from receiving any direct 
benefit or assistance from funds in the bill except for 
emergency assistance. The conference agreement expands the 
provision to include direction that agencies should take 
reasonable steps in determining the lawful status of 
individuals seeking assistance. Also, a nondiscrimination 
clause has been added. The Senate bill did not include any 
provision on this subject.
      This provision is essentially the same provision that was 
included in the initial emergency supplemental appropriations 
act that provided relief from the earthquake that hit the Los 
Angeles area in 1994 (Public Law 103-211). The conferees 
understand that this provision was implemented for that bill in 
a manner that did not delay non-emergency assistance to 
appropriate recipients. The conferees agree that this should be 
the situation for this bill.

              sense of the senate regarding tax avoidance

      The conference agreement deletes a Senate provision that 
expressed the sense of the Senate that Congress should act as 
quickly as possible to preclude persons from avoiding taxes by 
relinquishing their citizenship. The House bill contained no 
similar provision.

               federal administrative and travel expenses

      The conference agreement deletes two Senate provisions 
that would have rescinded $342,500,000 for administrative and 
travel activities. The conferees agree that it is more 
appropriate to make rescissions in the regular accounts rather 
than making across the board rescissions.

                   impact of legislation on children

      The conference agreement deletes a sense of the Congress 
provision included in the Senate version of the bill that 
Congress should not adopt any legislation that would increase 
the number of children who are hungry or homeless. The House 
bill contained no similar provision.
                               TITLE III

                 EMERGENCY SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS

                       ANTI-TERRORISM INITIATIVES

                         OKLAHOMA CITY RECOVERY

                               Chapter I

Departments of Commerce, Justice, and State, the Judiciary, and related 
                                agencies

      After House and Senate consideration of this bill, the 
Administration requested emergency supplemental appropriations 
of $71,455,000 for the Department of Justice and $10,400,000 
for the Judiciary to address urgent needs arising from the 
Oklahoma City bombing and for enhanced anti-terrorism efforts. 
The conference agreement provides an emergency supplemental 
appropriation of $113,360,000 for the Department of Justice and 
$16,640,000 for the Judiciary for these purposes, an increase 
of $48,145,000. These funds are designated by the Congress as 
emergency requirements pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(D)(i) of 
the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, 
as amended and amounts above the supplemental request are 
available as emergency spending only to the extent that the 
President also designates these funds as emergency 
requirements.
      The conference agreement provides funding through fiscal 
year 1996 for the full anticipated costs of expenses related to 
the investigation and prosecution of persons responsible for 
the bombing as well as the full cost of funding new personnel 
for enhanced counterterrorism efforts. The conference agreement 
also provides for a more flexible mechanism for the Attorney 
General to reimburse Department of Justice law enforcement 
agencies and State and local expenses related to the Oklahoma 
City bombing by appropriating funds requested for these 
expenses to a new Counterterrorism Fund.
      While awaiting the Administration's 1996 budget 
amendment, the conferees have attempted to anticipate and fully 
fund the requirements for enhanced counterterrorism activities 
in both 1995 and 1996. To the extent that the supplemental does 
not fully anticipate the total needs, the conferees expect that 
the Administration will forward the additional requirements 
expeditiously.

                         Department of Justice

                         General Administration

                         Counterterrorism Fund

      The conferees have established a new Fund within this 
appropriation account, under the control and direction of the 
Attorney General, to: (1) cover the extraordinary and 
contingency type costs that have been incurred and are expected 
to occur as a result of the Oklahoma City bombing and (2) to 
cover costs related to any potential or actual future domestic 
or international terrorism event. The conference agreement 
provides an appropriation of $34,220,000 for this account which 
will remain available until expended.
      The conferees intend that the funds provided through the 
Counterterrorism Fund will be used to reestablish or rebuild 
offices or facilities of the Department of Justice that are 
destroyed or damaged as the result of a domestic or 
international terrorism event. For example, the Oklahoma 
Resident Office of the Drug Enforcement Administration was 
destroyed in the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building. In 
addition, funds are provided for a threat assessment of all 
Federal office buildings.
      The conference agreement allows for the payment of 
expenses of an extraordinary nature of Department of Justice 
agencies engaged in, or providing support to, countering, 
investigating, or prosecuting domestic or international 
terrorism. Therefore, funds are available to reimburse the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Attorneys 
and the United States Marshals Service for expenses incurred in 
connection with the Oklahoma City bombing and may be used for 
further expenses related to this incident. Funds are also 
available to reimburse the Office of Justice Programs Justice 
Assistance account for Emergency Assistance payments to 
qualifying State or local law enforcement agencies.
      The conference agreement allows this Fund to be used for 
the payment of rewards as outlined under language included in 
the General Provisions for the Department of Justice contained 
in this Act.
      Because there may be necessary expenses that arise in 
such events that are not known at the present time, the 
conference agreement allows the Attorney General to make the 
determination on a case by case basis of such necessary 
expenses which may be covered by funds appropriated to this 
account. The Attorney General may also use these funds to 
engage in planning, and the execution of such plans, related to 
upcoming significant events which offer the potential of being 
targeted by domestic or international terrorists.
      The conferees expect the Attorney General to notify the 
Committees on Appropriations of the House of Representatives 
and the Senate prior to the obligation of funds from this 
account, with the exception of the $10,555,000 requested by the 
Administration for anticipated 1995 costs of the Department of 
Justice related to the Oklahoma City bombing. The conferees 
understand the urgency of meeting these requirements and the 
need to reimburse these agencies for these expenses in a timely 
manner. To the extent that these expenses deviate from those 
requested by the Administration in the supplemental, the 
conferees expect the Attorney General to report any differences 
to the Committees on Appropriations of both the House and the 
Senate.

                            Legal Activities

             Salaries and Expenses, United States Attorneys

      The conference agreement provides a $2,000,000 
supplemental appropriation for the United States Attorneys. The 
amounts provided will remain available until expended and will 
provide for the establishment of a specialized team of 
attorneys for terrorism prosecution. The funds provided will 
support the full cost of hiring an additional 8 Assistant 
United States Attorneys and 4 support personnel.
      The conference agreement also provides additional funds, 
as requested by the Administration, to support extraordinary 
expenses being incurred by the United States Attorneys from the 
establishment of a Command Center in Oklahoma City to support 
the investigation of persons involved in the Oklahoma bombing 
and future expenses related to the prosecution and trial of 
those arrested. The conferees intend that funds for these 
activities for the United States Attorneys will be provided 
under the newly established Counterterrorism Fund.

                    federal bureau of investigation

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conference agreement provides a $77,140,000 
supplemental appropriation for the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation, to remain available until expended, for 
additional personnel and equipment to support expanded 
investigations of domestic and international terrorism 
activities.
      The conference agreement provides $1,905,000 for the full 
cost of hiring 25 intelligence analysts to establish a Domestic 
Counter-terrorism Center to coordinate and centralize Federal, 
State, and local law enforcement efforts in response to major 
terrorist incidents and as a clearinghouse for all domestic and 
international terrorism information and intelligence.
      In addition the conferees have provided $12,875,000 for 
the full cost of hiring 31 additional engineering and technical 
staff to support research and development of new techniques to 
replace existing intercept capabilities that are ineffective 
when used in an advanced digital communications environment and 
to enhance law enforcement capabilities to perform court-
authorized voice and data interceptions.
      The conferees provide $10,000,000 to modernize the FBI's 
Strategic Information Operations Center to provide the 
capability of addressing multiple sites and incidents 
concurrently and to support the centralized coordination of law 
enforcement for major incidents such as the Oklahoma City 
bombing.
      The conference agreement provides $37,660,000 for the 
full cost of hiring 190 surveillance specialists and 143 
support personnel, in lieu of one month's funding for 231 
surveillance specialists and 169 support personnel. In 
addition, $8,700,000 is provided for the full cost of hiring 38 
tactical operations staff and for equipment for enhanced 
counter-terrorism operations. Also provided is $5,000,000 to 
replace and upgrade laboratory equipment and provide Emergency 
Response Teams with proper equipment and tools for the 
collection and processing of crime scene evidence. The 
conferees also provided $1,000,000 for the development of an 
automated database to collect and analyze information regarding 
hostage/barricade situations.
      The conference agreement does not include $5,600,000 for 
the design of three new facilities--a new FBI laboratory, a new 
National Law Enforcement Technical Support Center, and a new 
training facility--due to the need to assess the purpose and 
the long-term costs of these facilities in the regular 
appropriations process.
      The conference agreement also provides additional funds, 
as requested by the Administration, to support extraordinary 
expenses being incurred by the Federal Bureau of Investigation 
to support the investigation of persons involved in the 
Oklahoma City bombing and the payment of rewards in connection 
with this investigation. The conferees intend that funds for 
these activities and future expenses of the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation related to this incident will be provided under 
the newly established Counterterrorism Fund.

                           General Provisions

      Section 3001 of the conference agreement includes 
language that allows the Attorney General to provide a reward, 
up to a maximum of $2,000,000, to individuals assisting in the 
investigation and prosecution of terrorists. The Attorney 
General is currently limited to a maximum reward payment of 
$500,000.
      Section 3002 of the conference agreement provides that 
funds made available in this Act are subject to the standard 
reprogramming procedures set forth in Section 605 of Public Law 
103-317.
                             The Judiciary

    Courts of Appeals, District Courts, and Other Judicial Services

                             Court Security

      The conference agreement includes a supplemental 
appropriation of $16,640,000 for the Federal Judiciary's Court 
Security account compared to the Administration's request of 
$10,400,000. The amount provided will remain available until 
expended to cover the costs of enhanced security of judges and 
support personnel in response to the potential increased threat 
resulting from the recent bombing of the Federal building in 
Oklahoma City. The amount is provided as follows:
            --$12,620,000 to cover the full costs of hiring an 
        additional 250 new court security officers (CSOs) for 
        existing court locations which currently have none and 
        at locations which are currently below accepted 
        standards. The Judiciary had requested funds to hire 
        400 CSOs for existing space, but the conferees felt 
        that no more than 250 could be brought on so late in 
        the fiscal year. The remainder of this request will be 
        considered in the context of the fiscal year 1996 
        appropriations process.
            --$2,120,000 for the full costs of hiring an 
        additional 40 CSOs to operate and monitor new weapons/
        explosives screening equipment and x-ray machines for 
        fifteen existing judiciary locations where no security 
        equipment is currently in place.
            --$4,900,000 for new and replacement security 
        equipment, including upgrading equipment at existing 
        facilities and purchase of x-ray machines and 
        magnetometers for fifteen facilities which currently 
        have no security equipment.
      The amounts provided assume the reprogramming of 
$3,000,000 in available balances in this account as proposed in 
the Judiciary's supplemental request.
      The conferees have not included the $2,000,000 requested 
for vehicle barriers to be placed at the entrance to parking 
garages at 50 metropolitan court facilities around the country. 
The conferees understand that the actual costs of placing these 
barriers at the 50 locations may be greater than the $2,000,000 
requested and urge the Judiciary to work with the General 
Services Administration to identify the necessary resources for 
this proposal in the fiscal year 1996 budget.

                               Chapter II

                       Department of the Treasury

                          Departmental Offices

                         Salaries and Expenses

      As part of the Administration's supplemental request, 
$300,000 was included to hire 10 new employees to assist in 
oversight of the Department's anti-terrorism efforts. The 
conferees deny this request.

                Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree to provide $34,823,000, $18,616,000 
above the $16,207,000 requested by the Administration, in order 
to offset immediate expenses associated with the aftermath and 
investigation of the Oklahoma City bombing, security upgrades 
in headquarters and field offices, and the enhancement of 
certain counter-terrorism capabilities.
      The conferees provide $4,723,000 of the $4,923,000 
requested to cover overtime, travel, communications and 
equipment associated with reestablishing ATF offices in 
Oklahoma City and to cover investigative expenses. The 
conferees deny the $200,000 request for the replacement of all 
basic office equipment and furniture lost in the explosion 
since these costs will be borne by the General Services 
Administration.
      The conferees provide $3,000,000 to improve security in 
field offices, the same amount requested by the President.
      The conferees agree to provide $7,000,000 for costs 
associated with the relocation of ATF headquarters, of which up 
to $300,000 may be used to provide temporary improvements to 
ATF's current headquarters, as needed.
      The conferees provide $3,000,000 to fund the personnel 
costs of four new permanent National Response Teams (NRT), 
$3,300,000 for mobile response equipment and additional 
laboratory personnel, and $1,800,000 for additional 
intelligence analysts and explosives inspectors.
      The conferees further note that ATF lacks sufficient 
resources to purchase certain critical pieces of equipment or 
to make other investments needed to effectively and efficiently 
pursue it mission. For that reason, the conferees agree to 
provide $12,000,000 to fund a number of items requested in the 
President's FY 1996 budget request: purchase of electronic 
surveillance equipment, weapons, protective gear and 
investigative vehicles; improvement of financial management 
information systems; and development of AFT's Integrated 
Collection System. These funds may also be used for costs 
associated with the relocation of the ATF laboratory.

                federal law enforcement training center

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree to provide $1,100,000 and additional 
personnel as requested for the Federal Law Enforcement Training 
Center to enhance the anti-terrorism training component of 
basic courses, increase the number and quality of advanced 
training courses in anti-terrorism tactics, provide additional 
equipment for such training and train personnel.

                      united states secret service

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree to provide $6,675,000 for the Secret 
Service, $2,800,000 above the amount requested by the 
President. The conferees have provided the additional funds for 
expenses related to the completion of the White House Access 
Control System ($1,800,000) and the purchase of Remote Delivery 
Site Equipment ($1,000,000).

                     united States customs service

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree to provide $1,000,000 of the 
$1,200,000 requested to relocate Customs offices, pay for 
temporary duty replacements, over the costs of permanent change 
of station moves and replacement vehicles, and purchase certain 
office equipment. The conferees deny the $200,000 request for 
the replacement of all basic office equipment and furniture 
lost in the explosion since these costs will be borne by the 
General Services Administration.

                        internal revenue service

                     Administration and Management

      As part of the Administration's supplemental request, 
$1,000,000 was included to cover expenses for overtime, travel 
and supplies related to the investigation of the bombing. The 
conferees deny this request and instead have diverted these 
funds to the Secret Service for the purchase of additional 
White House security systems.
                  financial crimes enforcement network

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees have denied the President's request of 
$300,000 in emergency appropriations for the Financial Crimes 
Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and instead have diverted these 
funds to the Secret Service for the purchase of additional 
White House Security systems. The conferees note that any 
additional work accomplished by FinCEN as part of the Oklahoma 
City investigation should be done within existing resources.

                           Independent Agency

                    general services administration

                         federal buildings fund

                   Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building

      The conferees have included a provision which provides 
additional funding related to the Alfred P. Murrah Federal 
Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The conferees, in response 
to the special needs created by the April 19, 1995, terrorist 
bombing attack at the Murrah Federal Building, have added 
$40,400,000 for expenses of real property management and 
related activities. This includes: planning, design, 
construction, demolition, restoration, repairs, alterations, 
acquisition, installment acquisition payments, rental of space, 
buildings operations, maintenance, protection, moving of 
governmental agencies and other activities.
      The recommendation also provides that, in carrying out 
the foregoing activities, the Administrator of General Services 
may exchange, sell, lease, donate, or otherwise dispose of the 
site of the Murrah building to the State of Oklahoma, to 
Oklahoma City, or any political subdivision or agency of the 
State or city, and that such disposal shall not be subject to 
the Public Buildings Act of 1959, the Federal Property and 
Administrative Services Act of 1949, or any other Federal law 
establishing requirements or procedures for disposing of 
Federal property.
      In recommending waivers of these laws, the conferees are 
responding to the extraordinary circumstances created by this 
tragic destruction of life and property and the realization 
that the work of replacement and recovery should not be 
unnecessarily encumbered by otherwise applicable provisions of 
law. Nevertheless, the conferees recommend the use of this 
waiver authority by the Administrator, at his discretion. This 
authority should only be used when circumstances dictate the 
clear necessity to do so. It is not intended that use of 
existing authority be precluded where consistent with and 
appropriate to serving the needs and purposes of this disposal 
action.
      The conferees have also included a provision requiring 
prospectus approval of any major repair, alteration, lease, or 
construction project if the need for such a prospectus meets 
the requirements of the Public Buildings Act.

                         emergency requirements

      As part of the Administration's supplemental request, a 
total of $26,400,000 was included for emergency requirements.

    Building..................................................$2,300,000

      Provides $3,200,000 for emergency expenses resulting from 
the bombing of Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma 
City as requested by the Administration. These funds will cover 
relocation costs for replacement employees, travel, overtime,

                          Independent Agencies

                  Federal Emergency Management Agency

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees propose a supplemental appropriation for 
fiscal year 1995 of $3,523,000. This amount, not included in 
either the House or Senate bills, was requested by the 
President in his May 2, 1995 message to address urgent needs 
arising from the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal 
Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This amount will assist in 
providing additional security personnel as well as enhanced 
physical protection at all Agency field offices. Additionally, 
funds will be available for staff training and awareness of the 
terrorist threat and enhanced security management systems, for 
additional training and exercises associated with the Federal 
Response Plan, and for modifying and expanding the Federal 
Response Plan.

              Emergency Management Planning and Assistance

      The conferees propose a supplemental appropriation for 
fiscal year 1995 of $3,477,000. This amount, not included in 
either the House or Senate bills, was requested by the 
President in his May 2, 1995 message to address urgent needs 
arising from the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal 
Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This amount will provide 
for the development of new plans and procedures for an 
efficient response to a terrorist event under the Federal 
Response Plan, as well as for increased training and exercises 
associated with such a response for State and local emergency 
personnel.

                                Citation

      The conference agreement amends the Senate citation of 
the bill to reflect the inclusion of emergency supplemental 
appropriations for the anti-terrorism initiatives and for the 
recovery assistance for the tragedy that occurred at Oklahoma 
City. The House bill did not contain a citation.
      The conferees agreement amends the title of the bill to 
be compatible with the amended enacting clause and citation.
