             TITLE IX--NATIONAL WHALE CONSERVATION FUND ACT


                              short title


    Sec. 901. This title may be cited as the ``National Whale 
Conservation Fund Act of 1998''.


                                findings


    Sec. 902. Congress finds that--
            (1) the populations of whales that occur in waters 
        of the United States are resources of substantial 
        ecological, scientific, socioeconomic, and esthetic 
        value;
            (2) whale populations--
                    (A) form a significant component of marine 
                ecosystems;
                    (B) are the subject of intense research;
                    (C) provide for a multimillion dollar whale 
                watching tourist industry that provides the 
                public an opportunity to enjoy and learn about 
                great whales and the ecosystems of which the 
                whales are a part; and
                    (D) are of importance to Native Americans 
                for cultural and subsistence purposes;
            (3) whale populations are in various stages of 
        recovery, and some whale populations, such as the 
        northern right whale (Eubaleana glacialis) remain 
        perilously close to extinction;
            (4) the interactions that occur between ship 
        traffic, commercial fishing, whale watching vessels, 
        and other recreational vessels and whale populations 
        may affect whale populations adversely;
            (5) the exploration and development of oil, gas, 
        and hard mineral resources, marine debris, chemical 
        pollutants, noise, and other anthropogenic sources of 
        change in the habitat of whales may affect whale 
        populations adversely;
            (6) the conservation of whale populations is 
        subject to difficult challenges related to--
                    (A) the migration of whale populations 
                across international boundaries;
                    (B) the size of individual whales, as that 
                size precludes certain conservation research 
                procedures that may be used for other animal 
                species, such as captive research and breeding;
                    (C) the low reproductive rates of whales 
                that require long-term conservation programs to 
                ensure recovery of whale populations; and
                    (D) the occurrence of whale populations in 
                offshore waters where undertaking research, 
                monitoring, and conservation measures is 
                difficult and costly;
            (7)(A) the Secretary of Commerce, through the 
        Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
        Administration, has research and regulatory 
        responsibility for the conservation of whales under the 
        Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 (16 U.S.C. 1361 et 
        seq.); and
            (B) the heads of other Federal agencies and the 
        Marine Mammal Commission established under section 201 
        of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 (16 U.S.C. 
        1401) have related research and management activities 
        under the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 or the 
        Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531 et 
        seq.);
            (8) the funding available for the activities 
        described in paragraph (8) is insufficient to support 
        all necessary whale conservation and recovery 
        activities; and
            (9) there is a need to facilitate the use of funds 
        from non-Federal sources to carry out the conservation 
        of whales.


                    national whale conservation fund


    Sec. 903. Section 4 of the National Fish and Wildlife 
Establishment Act (16 U.S.C. 3703) is amended by adding at the 
end the following:
    ``(f)(1) In carrying out the purposes under section 2(b), 
the Foundation may establish a national whale conservation 
endowment fund, to be used by the Foundation to support 
research, management activities, or educational programs that 
contribute to the protection, conservation, or recovery of 
whale populations in waters of the United States.
    ``(2)(A) In a manner consistent with subsection (c)(1), the 
Foundation may--
            ``(i) accept, receive, solicit, hold, administer, 
        and use any gift, devise, or bequest made to the 
        Foundation for the express purpose of supporting whale 
        conservation; and
            ``(ii) deposit in the endowment fund under 
        paragraph (1) any funds made available to the 
        Foundation under this subparagraph, including any 
        income or interest earned from a gift, devise, or 
        bequest received by the Foundation under this 
        subparagraph.
    ``(B) To raise funds to be deposited in the endowment fund 
under paragraph (1), the Foundation may enter into appropriate 
arrangements to provide for the design, copyright, production, 
marketing, or licensing, of logos, seals, decals, stamps, or 
any other item that the Foundation determines to be 
appropriate.
    ``(C)(i) The Secretary of Commerce may transfer to the 
Foundation for deposit in the endowment fund under paragraph 
(1) any amount (or portion thereof) received by the Secretary 
under section 105(a)(1) of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 
1972 (16 U.S.C. 1375(a)(1)) as a civil penalty assessed by the 
Secretary under that section.
    ``(ii) The Directors of the Board shall ensure that any 
amounts transferred to the Foundation under clause (i)for the 
endowment fund under paragraph (1) are deposited in that fund in 
accordance with this subparagraph.
    ``(3) It is the intent of Congress that in making 
expenditures from the endowment fund under paragraph (1) to 
carry out activities specified in that paragraph, the 
Foundation should give priority to funding projects that 
address the conservation of populations of whales that the 
Foundation determines--
            ``(A) are the most endangered (including the 
        northern right whale (Eubaleana glacialis)); or
            ``(B) most warrant, and are most likely to benefit 
        from, research management, or educational activities 
        that may be funded with amounts made available from the 
        fund.
    ``(g) In carrying out any action on the part of the 
Foundation under subsection (f), the Directors of the Board 
shall consult with the Administrator of the National Oceanic 
and Atmospheric Administration and the Marine Mammal 
Commission.''.

       report on iraqi development of weapons of mass destruction


    Sec. 585. (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) Iraq is continuing efforts to mask the extent 
        of its weapons of mass destruction and missile 
        programs;
            (2) proposals to relax the current international 
        inspection regime would have potentially dangerous 
        consequences for international security; and
            (3) Iraq has demonstrated time and again that it 
        cannot be trusted to abide by international norms or by 
        its own agreements, and that the only way the 
        international community can be assured of Iraqi 
        compliance is by ongoing inspection.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the international agencies charged with 
        inspections in Iraq--the International Atomic Energy 
        Agency (IAEA) and the United Nations Special Commission 
        (UNSCOM) should maintain vigorous inspections, 
        including surprise inspections, within Iraq; and
            (2) the United States should oppose any efforts to 
        ease the inspections regimes on Iraq until there is 
        clear, credible evidence that the Government of Iraq is 
        in full compliance with all relevant United Nations' 
        resolutions.
    (c) Report.--Not later than 30 days after the date of 
enactment of this Act, the President shall submit a report to 
Congress on the United States Government's assessment of Iraq's 
nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction programs and its 
efforts to move toward procurement of nuclear weapons and the 
means to deliver weapons of mass destruction. The report shall 
also--
            (1) assess the United States view of the 
        International Atomic Energy Agency's action team 
        reports and other IAEA efforts to monitor the extent 
        and nature of Iraq's nuclear program; and
            (2) include the United States Government's opinion 
        on the value of maintaining the ongoing inspection 
        regime rather than replacing it with a passive 
        monitoring system.


                    sense of congress regarding iran


    Sec. 586. (a) The Congress finds that--
            (1) according to the Department of State, Iran 
        continues to support international terrorism, providing 
        training, financing, and weapons to such terrorist 
        groups as Hizballah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas;
            (2) Iran continues to oppose the Arab-Israeli peace 
        process and refuses to recognize Israel's right to 
        exist;
            (3) Iran continues aggressively to seek weapons of 
        mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them;
            (4) it is long-standing United States policy to 
        offer official government-to-government dialogue with 
        the Iranian regime, such offers having been repeatedly 
        rebuffed by Tehran;
            (5) more than a year after the election of 
        President Khatemi, Iranian foreign policy continues to 
        threaten American security and that of our allies in 
        the Middle East; and
            (6) despite repeated offers and tentative steps 
        toward rapprochement with Iran by the Clinton 
        Administration, including a decision to waive sanctions 
        under the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act and the President's 
        veto of the Iran Missile Proliferation Sanctions Act, 
        Iran has failed to reciprocate in a meaningful manner.
    (b) Therefore it is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) the Administration should make no concessions 
        to the Government of Iran unless and until that 
        government moderates its objectionable policies, 
        including taking steps to end its support of 
        international terrorism, opposition to the Middle East 
        peace process, and the development and proliferation of 
        weapons of mass destruction and their means of 
        delivery; and
            (2) there should be no change in United States 
        policy toward Iran until there is credible and 
        sustained evidence of a change in Iranian policies.


                         aid office of security


    Sec. 587. (a) Establishment of Office.--There shall be 
established within the Office of the Administrator of the 
Agency for International Development, an Office of Security. 
Such Office of Security shall, notwithstanding any other

responsibility for the supervision, direction, and control of 
all security activities relating to the programs and operations 
of that Agency.
    (b) Transfer and Allocation of Appropriations and 
Personnel.--There are transferred to theOffice of Security all

Executive Service position designated for the Assistant Inspector 
General for Security), assets, liabilities, grants, contracts, 
property, records, and unexpended balances of appropriations, and other 
funds held, used, available to, or to be made available in connection 
with such functions. Unexpended balances of appropriations, and other 
funds made available or to be made available in connection with such 
functions, shall be transferred to and merged with funds appropriated 
by this Act under the heading ``Operating Expenses of the Agency for 
International Development''.
    (c) Transfer of Employees.--Any employee in the career 
service who is transferred pursuant to this section shall be 
placed in a position in the Office of Security established by 
subsection (a) which is comparable to the position the employee 
held in the Office of the Inspector General of the Agency for 
International Development.


  sense of congress regarding ballistic missile development by north 
                                 korea


    Sec. 588. (a) Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) North Korea has been active in developing new 
        generations of medium-range and intermediate-range 
        ballistic missiles, including both the Nodong and Taepo 
        Dong class missiles.
            (2) North Korea is not an adherent to the Missile 
        Technology Control Regime, actively cooperates with 
        Iran and Pakistan in ballistic missile programs, and 
        has declared its intention to continue to export 
        ballistic missile technology.
            (3) North Korea has shared technology involved in 
        the Taepo Dong I missile program with Iran, which is 
        concurrently developing the Shahab-3 intermediate-range 
        ballistic missile.
            (4) North Korea is developing the Taepo Dong II 
        intermediate-range ballistic missile, which is expected 
        to have sufficient range to put at risk United States 
        territories, forces, and allies throughout the Asia-
        Pacific area.
            (5) Multistage missiles like the Taepo Dong class 
        missile can ultimately be extended to intercontinental 
        range.
            (6) The bipartisan Commission to Assess the 
        Ballistic Missile Threat to the United States 
        emphasized the need for the United States intelligence 
        community and United States policy makers toreview the 
methodology by which they assess foreign missile programs in order to 
guard against surprise developments with respect to such programs.
    (b) It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) North Korea should be forcefully condemned for 
        its August 31, 1998, firing of a Taepo Dong I 
        intermediate-range ballistic missile over the sovereign 
        territory of another country, specifically Japan, an 
        event that demonstrated an advanced capability for 
        employing multistage missiles, which are by nature 
        capable of extended range, including intercontinental 
        range;
            (2) the United States should reassess its 
        cooperative space launch programs with countries that 
        continue to assist North Korea and Iran in their 
        ballistic missile and cruise missile programs;
            (3) any financial or technical assistance provided 
        to North Korea should take into account the continuing 
        conduct by that country of activities which destabilize 
        the region, including the missile firing referred to in 
        paragraph (1), continued submarine incursions into 
        South Korean territorial waters, and violations of the 
        demilitarized zone separating North Korea and South 
        Korea;
            (4) the recommendations of the Commission to Assess 
        the Ballistic Missile Threat to the United States 
        should be incorporated into the analytical processes of 
        the United States intelligence community as soon as 
        possible; and
            (5) the United States should accelerate cooperative 
        theater missile defense programs with Japan.

        acts should be completed by the earliest possible date,

        member of the armed forces of Indonesia who may have 
        participated in criminal acts against the people of 
        Indonesia during the riots, is commended and should be 
        supported;
            (4) the Government of Indonesia should take action 
        to assure--
                    (A) the implementation of appropriate 
                measures to prevent ethnic-related violence and 
                rapes in Indonesia and to protect the human 
                rights and physical safety of the ethnic

sense of congress concerning the murder of four american churchwomen in 
                              el salvador


    Sec. 595. (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following 
findings--
            (1) the December 2, 1980 brutal assault and murder 
        of four American churchwomen by members of the 
        Salvadoran National Guard was covered up and never 
        fully investigated;
            (2) on July 22 and July 23, 1998, Salvadoran 
        authorities granted three of the National Guardsmen 
        convicted of the crimes early release from prison;
            (3) the United Nations Truth Commission for El 
        Salvador determined in 1993 that there was sufficient 
        evidence that the Guardsmen were acting on orders from 
        their superiors;
            (4) in March 1998, four of the convicted Guardsmen 
        confessed that they acted after receiving orders from 
        their superiors;
            (5) recently declassified documents from the State 
        Department show that United States Government officials 
        were aware of information suggesting the involvement of 
        superior officers in the murders;
            (6) United States officials granted permanent 
        residence to a former Salvadoran military official 
        involved in the cover-up of the murders, enabling him 
        to remain in Florida; and
            (7) despite the fact that the murders occurred over 
        17 years ago, the families of the four victims continue 
        to seek the disclosure of information relevant to the 
        murders.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) information relevant to the murders should be 
        made public to the fullest extent possible;
            (2) the Secretary of State and the Department of 
        State are to be commended for fully releasing 
        information regarding the murders to the victims' 
        families and to the American public, in prompt response 
        to congressional requests;
            (3) the President should order all other Federal 
        agencies and departments that possess relevant 
        information to make every effort to declassify and 
        release to the victims' families relevant information 
        as expeditiously as possible;
            (4) in making determinations concerning the 
        declassification and release of relevant information, 
        the Federal agencies and departments should presume in 
        favor of releasing, rather than of withholding, such 
        information; and
            (5) the President should direct the Attorney 
        General to review the circumstances under which 
        individuals involved in either the murders or the 
        cover-up of the murders obtained residence in the 
        United States, and the Attorney General should submit a 
        report to the Congress on the results of such review 
        not later than January 1, 1999.


    sense of congress regarding the trial in the netherlands of the 
         suspects indicted in the bombing of pan am flight 103


    Sec. 596. (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following 
findings:
            (1) On December 21, 1988, 270 people, including 189 
        United States citizens, were killed in a terrorist 
        bombing on Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.
            (2) Britain and the United States indicted 2 Libyan 
        intelligence agents--Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi and Lamen 
        Khalifa Fhimah--in 1991 and sought their extradition 
        from Libya to the United States or the United Kingdom 
        to stand trial for this heinous terrorist act.
            (3) The United Nations Security Council called for 
        the extradition of the suspects in Security Council 
        Resolution 731 and imposed sanctions on Libya in 
        Security Council Resolutions 748 and 883 because Libyan 
        leader, Colonel Muammar Qadhafi, refused to transfer 
        the suspects to either the United States or the United 
        Kingdom to stand trial.
            (4) The sanctions in Security Council Resolutions 
        748 and 883 include a worldwide ban on Libya's national 
        airline, a ban on flights into and out of Libya by 
        other nations' airlines, a prohibition on supplying 
        arms, airplane parts, and certain oil equipment to 
        Libya, and a freeze on Libyan government funds in other 
        countries.
            (5) Colonel Qadhafi has continually refused to 
        extradite the suspects to either the United States or 
        the United Kingdom and has insisted that he will only 
        transfer the suspects to a third and neutral country to 
        stand trial.
            (6) On August 24, 1998, the United States and the 
        United Kingdom proposed that Colonel Qadhafi transfer 
        the suspects to the Netherlands, where they would stand 
        trial before a Scottish court, under Scottish law, and 
        with a panel of Scottish judges.
            (7) The United States-United Kingdom proposal is 
        consistent with those previously endorsed by the 
        Organization of African Unity, the League of Arab 
        States, the Non-Aligned Movement, and the Islamic 
        Conference.
            (8) The United Nations Security Council endorsed 
        the United States-United Kingdom proposal on August 27, 
        1998, in United Nations Security Council Resolution 
        1192.
            (9) The United States Government has stated that 
        this proposal is nonnegotiable and has called on 
        Colonel Qadhafi to respond promptly, positively, and 
        unequivocally to this proposal by ensuring the timely 
        appearance of the two accused individuals in the 
        Netherlands for trial before the Scottish court.
            (10) The United States Government has called on 
        Libya to ensure the production of evidence, including 
        the presence of witnesses before the court, and to 
        comply fully with all the requirements of the United 
        Nations Security Council resolutions.
            (11) Secretary of State Albright has said that the 
        United States will urge a multilateral oil embargo 
        against Libya in the United Nations Security Council if 
        Colonel Muammar Qadhafi does not transfer the suspects 
        to The Netherlands to stand trial.
            (12) The United Nations Security Council will 
        convene on October 30, 1998, to review sanctions 
        imposed on Libya.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) Colonel Qadhafi should promptly transfer the 
        indicted suspects Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi and Lamen 
        Khalifa Fhimah to The Netherlands to stand trial before 
        the Scottish court;
            (2) the United States Government should remain firm 
        in its commitment not to negotiate with Colonel Qadhafi 
        on any of the details of the proposal approved by the 
        United Nations in United Nations Security Council 
        Resolution 1192; and
            (3) if Colonel Qadhafi does not transfer the 
        indicted suspects Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi and Lamen 
        Khalifa Fhimah to The Netherlands by October 29,1998, 
the United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations 
should--
                    (A) introduce a resolution in the United 
                Nations Security Council to impose a 
                multilateral oil embargo against Libya;
                    (B) actively promote adoption of the 
                resolution by the United Nations Security 
                Council; and
                    (C) assure that a vote will occur in the 
                United Nations Security Council on such a 
                resolution.


sense of the congress regarding international cooperation in recovering 
  children abducted in the united states and taken to other countries.


    Sec. 597. (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) many children in the United States have been 
        abducted by family members who are foreign nationals 
        and living in foreign countries;
            (2) children who have been abducted by an estranged 
        father are very rarely returned, through legal 
        remedies, from countries that only recognize the 
        custody rights of the father;
            (3) there are at least 140 cases that need to be 
        resolved in which children have been abducted by family 
        members and taken to foreign countries;
            (4) although the Convention on the Civil Aspects of 
        International Child Abduction, done at The Hague on 
        October 25, 1980, has made progress in aiding the 
        return of abducted children, the Convention does not 
        address the criminal aspects of child abduction, and 
        there is a need to reach agreements regarding child 
        abduction with countries that are not parties to the 
        Convention; and
            (5) decisions on awarding custody of children 
        should be made in the children's best interest, and 
        persons who violate laws of the United States by 
        abducting their children should not be rewarded by 
        being granted custody of those children.
    (b) Sense of the Congress.--It is the sense of the Congress 
that the United States Government should promote international 
cooperation in working to resolve those cases in which children 
in the United States are abducted by family members who are 
foreign nationals and taken to foreign countries, and in seeing 
that justice is served by holding accountable the abductors for 
violations of criminal law.

        International Monetary Fund to take better account of 
        the increased importance of cross-border capital flows 
        in the world economy and improving the coordination of 
        its responsibilities and activities with those of the 
        International Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

                and systemic risk in international financial

        in order to help minimize the adjustment costs that the 
        resolution of financial crises may impose on the real 
        economy, in the form of disrupted patterns of trade, 
        employment, and progress in living standards, and 
        reduce the frequency and magnitude of claims on United 
        States taxpayer resources.
            (3) Improving international economic policy 
        cooperation, including among the Group of Seven

        cross-border capital flows in the determination of 
        exchange rate relationships.
            (4) Improving international cooperation in the 
        supervision and regulation of financial institutions 
        and markets.
            (5) Strengthening the financial sector in emerging 
        economies, including by improving the coordination of 
        financial sector liberalization with the establishment 
        of strong public and private institutions in the areas 
        of prudential supervision, accounting and disclosure 
        conventions, bankruptcy laws and administrative 
        procedures, and the collection and dissemination of 
        economic and financial statistics, including the 
        maturity structure of foreign indebtedness.
            (6) Advocating that implementation of European 
        Economic and Monetary Union and the advent of the 
        European Currency Unit, or euro, proceed in a manner 
        that is consistent with strong global economic growth 
        and stability in world financial markets.
