                                Purpose

    The purpose of this bill is to provide appropriations for 
the fiscal year 1999 beginning October 1, 1998, and ending 
September 30, 1999, for energy and water development, and for 
other related purposes. It supplies funds for water resources 
development programs and related activities of the Department 
of the Army, Civil Functions--U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' 
Civil Works Program in title I; for the Department of the 
Interior's Bureau of Reclamation in title II; for the 
Department of Energy's energy research activities (except for 
fossil fuel programs and certain conservation and regulatory 
functions), including environmental restoration and waste 
management, and atomic energy defense activities in title III; 
and for related independent agencies and commissions, including 
the Appalachian Regional Commission and Appalachian regional 
development programs, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and 
the Tennessee Valley Authority in title IV.

                Summary of Estimates and Recommendations

    The fiscal year 1999 budget estimates for the bill total 
$21,725,462,000 in new budget (obligational) authority. The 
recommendation of the Committee totals $21,371,266,000. This is 
$354,196,000 below the budget estimates and $109,359,000 over 
the enacted appropriation for the current fiscal year.

                     subcommittee budget allocation

    The Energy and Water Development Subcommittee allocation 
under section 302(b)(1) of the Budget Act totals 
$21,077,000,000 in budget authority and $20,720,000,000 in 
outlays for fiscal year 1999. The bill as recommended by the 
Committee is within the subcommittee allocation for fiscal year 
1999 in budget authority and outlays.
    The Committee allocation for nondefense discretionary 
funding for fiscal year 1999 is essentially a freeze, 
$9,047,000,000 in budget authority, but is $57,000,000 below 
the budget request in outlays. This constrained budget 
situation combined with the administration's totally 
irresponsible action in under funding ongoing projects of the 
Corps of Engineers by $1,300,000,000 below the efficient rate 
to keep projects proceeding without significant delay, has 
placed extreme demands on the available nondefense 
discretionary resources available to the Committee. The Corps 
testified that the budget presented by the administration would 
conservatively result in a estimated $376,300,000 in increased 
costs to the Federal Government and $3,900,000,000 in forgone 
benefits.
    The defense discretionary allocation of $12,030,000,000 in 
budget authority is $268,000,000 below the budget request for 
the subcommittee, and $55,000,000 below the budget request for 
outlays. Again, in order to meet the outlay target, the 
subcommittee has to reduce defense activities and programs from 
the request by $350,000,000.
    Faced with severely constrained budget resources and the 
totally unacceptable reductions in the Corp of Engineers' water 
resource development program, the Committee has not been able 
to include new construction starts, and has applied available 
resources to ongoing projects. The Committee has also had to 
severely limit the numbers of new studies recommended for 
inclusion in the bill.

                 Government Performance and Results Act

    In accordance with the Government Performance and Results 
Act, the Department of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission submitted performance plans to the Committee in 
February 1998.
    The Department of Energy's performance plan is improved 
over the previous years. Unfortunately, there is considerable 
inconsistency among the quality of information provided by 
program offices. Energy research accounts are prone to 
subjective and vague goals such as: increasing activities to 
remove barriers to U.S. companies in energy efficiency, 
renewables, oil and gas recovery and clean coal technology 
markets; or reducing the country's vulnerability to imported 
oil. Those goals provide no basis for the evaluation of 
performance and, as a result, in no way assist in the purposes 
of the Government Performance and Results Act.
    Other programs do much better. For example, environmental 
management sets specific goals regarding the amount of material 
that will be processed at waste treatment facilities and when 
contracts will be awarded. Those sorts of measures should serve 
as a model for other program offices.
    It is the Committee's observation that program offices with 
vague and subjective goals in the Department's performance plan 
lack management focus. Those programs are frequently 
characterized by stove pipes within internal organizations, 
poor technology review capability, and an inability to evaluate 
the merits of their own programs.
    The Committee again commends the Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission [NRC] on its performance plan. Interestingly, the 
General Accounting Office [GAO] review of the NRC performance 
plan found a shortcoming the Committee attributes to the NRC as 
a whole, later in this report. The GAO found that the NRC 
performance plan includes over 110 output measures for seven 
strategic goals. By including such a large number of output 
measures, NRC risks creating an excess of data that will 
obscure rather that clarify performance issues. The Committee 
joins the GAO in recommending that the NRC rank its performance 
goals.

    Water and related resource..........................     672,119,000
    Central Utah project completion.....................      44,948,000

    The Committee has also recommended appropriations totaling 
approximately $4,670,256,000 for Federal water resource 
development programs. This includes projects and related 
activities of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers--Civil and the 
Bureau of Reclamation of the Department of the Interior. The 
Federal water resource development program provides lasting 
benefits to the Nation in the area of flood control, municipal 
and industrial water supply, irrigation of agricultural lands, 
water conservation, commercial navigation, hydroelectric power, 
recreation, and fish and wildlife enhancement.
    Water is our Nation's most precious and valuable resource. 
It is evident that water supply in the near future will be as 
important, if not more so, than energy. There is only so much 
water available. Water cannot be manufactured. Our Nation 
cannot survive without water, and economic prosperity cannot 
occur without a plentiful supply.
    While many areas of the country suffer from severe 
shortages of water, others suffer from the other extreme--an 
excess of water which threatens both rural and urban areas with 
floods. Because water is a national asset, and because the 
availability and control of water affect and benefit all States 
and jurisdictions, the Federal Government has historically 
assumed much of the responsibility for financing of water 
resource development.
    The existing national water resource infrastructure in 
America is an impressive system of dams, locks, harbors, 
canals, irrigation systems, reservoirs, and recreation sites 
with a central purpose--to serve the public's needs.
    Our waterways and harbors are an essential part of our 
national transportation system--providing clean, efficient, and 
economical transportation of fuels for energy generation and 
agricultural production, and making possible residential and 
industrial development to provide homes and jobs for the 
American people.
    Reservoir projects provide hydroelectric power production 
and downstream flood protection, make available recreational 
opportunities for thousands of urban residents, enhance fish 
and wildlife habitat, and provide our communities and 
industries with abundant and clean water supplies which are 
essential not only to life itself, but also to help maintain a 
high standard of living for the American people.
    When projects are completed, they make enormous 
contributions to America. The benefits derived from completed 
projects, in many instances, vastly exceed those contemplated 
during project development. In 1997, flood control projects 
prevented $45,500,000,000 in damages, and U.S. ports and 
harbors annually handle about $600,000,000,000 in international 
cargo generating over $150,000,000,000 in tax revenues, nearly 
$520,000,000,000 in personal income, contributing 
$783,000,000,000 to the Nation's gross domestic product, and 
$1,600,000,000,000 in business sales.

                         subcommittee hearings

    The Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development of the 
Committee on Appropriations held three sessions in connection 
with the fiscal year 1999 appropriation bill. Witnesses 
included officials and representatives of the Federal agencies 
under the subcommittee's jurisdiction.
    In addition, the subcommittee received numerous statements 
and letters from Members of the U.S. Senate and House of 
Representatives, Governors, State and local officials and 
representatives, and hundreds of private citizens of all walks 
of life throughout the United States. Testimony, both for and 
against many items, was presented to the subcommittee. The 
recommendations for fiscal year 1999, therefore, have been 
developed after careful consideration of available data.

                         votes in the committee

    By unanimous vote of 27 to 0 the Committee on June 4, 1998, 
recommended that the bill, as amended, be reported to the 
Senate.

growing demand for technical assistance and guidance by the 
from the Corps. The Committee recommendation includes $175,000 
for various studies in Alaska, including completion of the 
Kivilina relocation, erosion and flooding studies with the 
Alaska Department of Community and Regional Affairs, economic 
studies with the Alaska Department of Transportation related to 
harbor development, and studies with Alaska rural villages. 
Funding of $500,000 is also included for the Corps to provide 
geographic information system assistance to the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania for the purpose of watershed modeling and 
management. An amount of $100,000 is included for the Corps to 
review the Lake Champlain basin pollution prevention, control 
and restoration plan to determine what actions may be taken by 
the Corps to support the plan. This work shall be undertaken in 
cooperation with the Lake Champlain Basin Program, the States 
of Vermont and New York, and participating Federal agencies.
    Other coordination programs.--The Committee recommendation 
includes $300,000, the full budget request, for the Corps of 
Engineers to continue to participate as a stakeholder in the 
interagency ecosystem management task force's Pacific Northwest 
forest case study with responsibility to restore, sustain, and 
develop coordinated watershed ecosystem management strategies 
for species viability on all public lands.
    Also included in the Committee recommendation is the full 
budget request for the Corps to support the International Joint 
Commission's study of ways to reduce flood damages along the 
Red River. The Committee understands that the United States and 
Canada have agreed to a cooperative effort to determine ways to 
prevent future flooding.

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $1,473,373,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     784,000,000

    An appropriation of $1,248,068,000 is recommended for 
ongoing construction activities.

                  Budget Impacts and Program Execution

    The Committee is convinced that the administration's budget 
request of $784,000,000 for the fiscal year 1999 construction 
program, over $1,000,000,000 below the efficient rate of 
funding, was formulated without consideration of the 
administration's own priorities, policies, or budget objectives 
and worse, cannot be executed without significant contract 
terminations. In fact, if the President's budget were enacted, 
the additional financial burden on the American taxpayers would 
be a staggering $400,000,000 in increased costs and over 
$3,900,000,000 in benefits foregone. Further, the constraints 
that the administration has imposed, both through the ill-
advised fiscal year 1998 apportionment restrictions on 
contracting and forced contract terminations, have delayed 
execution of the fiscal year 1998 program and cost taxpayers 
and non-Federal local sponsors additional financial burdens. 
This budget was truly dead on arrival and the Committee has 
spent inordinate amounts of time restructuring a budget that is 
implementable and will keep the commitments to local sponsors 
who are also paying for these projects.
    This Committee has traditionally supported the cost-sharing 
initiatives that the administration has proposed to allow the 
program to continue. However, the President's budget fails to 
recognize that once a project cooperation agreement, which this 
administration so eagerly and publicly enters into, has been 
signed, the administration has a commitment to complete the 
project in the most efficient and least costly manner. It is 
inconceivable to leave such a financial hardship on the 
Government's partner in water resource construction as would 
have been imposed by the President's request. In addition, the 
administration's proposed construction budget fails to 
recognize the importance of investments in the water resources 
infrastructure as an investment in the future of the Nation. 
Many ongoing projects that are crucial to the Nation's economic 
security and competitiveness in the world economy had 
completion dated postponed as much as 10 years.
    The Committee has provided for a construction program that 
will allow contractors to move forward with the expectation of 
being paid for their completed work. However, the Committee has 
had to reduce the budgeted amounts for some projects and has 
not included any new construction starts for fiscal year 1999. 
Therefore, the Committee repeats its longstanding management 
policy for moving available resources from projects that are 
experiencing delays to those projects most in need of funding 
and directs the Corps to manage the construction program on a 
nationwide basis, moving available resources from projects that 
are experiencing delays to those projects most in need of 
funding. The Committee believes that good management, and 
cooperation of Corps district offices and non-Federal sponsors 
will be essential in limiting the impacts of insufficient 
funding.
    The Committee received numerous requests to include project 
authorizations in the energy and water development 
appropriations bill. However, in an effort to support and honor 
congressional authorizing committees jurisdiction, the 
Committee has not included new project authorizations.
    The Committee has included minor provisions which increase 
the cost ceiling for ongoing projects in order to prevent 
construction delays and associated increased costs.

shown on the following table:

    Cook Inlet, AK.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$6,000,000 for the Cook Inlet project in Alaska. The funding 
will allow the Corps of Engineers to complete the project. The 
Committee is aware that the current cost estimate for the 
project exceeds the authorized level and that the project 
cannot proceed without an increase in the project cost ceiling. 
In a effort to reduce delay and because the project can be 
completed in a single construction season, the Committee has 
recommended a provision in the bill to provide the required 
cost ceiling increase.
    Environmental infrastructure, Alaska.--The Committee has 
included $5,000,000, the same amount as provided for the 
current year, to continue the cost shared environmental 
infrastructure program in Alaska. In addition to allowing the 
Corps of Engineers to address serious water, wastewater, and 
other infrastructure issues, attention of the Corps is directed 
to the need to help with many other rural issues including bulk 
fuel storage, rural power, erosion control, and comprehensive 
utility planning.
    St. Paul Harbor, AK.--An appropriation of $6,000,000 is 
recommended for the Corps of Engineers to continue construction 
of the St. Paul Harbor, AK, project in fiscal year 1999. The 
Committee directs the Corps to use the funds appropriated for 
fiscal year 1998 and the appropriations provided herein to 
award a continuing contract and proceed expeditiously to 
complete the project.
    McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River navigation system (Montgomery 
Point lock and dam), Arkansas.--The bill includes $50,000,000 
for the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River navigation project. This 
is $31,000,000 over the amount requested in the budget for 
fiscal year 1999 will allow the Corps to proceed with 
construction on a more efficient schedule.
    Red River emergency bank protection, Arkansas.--An 
appropriation of $4,500,000 is included in the bill for the 
Corps of Engineers to fully fund construction of Canale Dikes, 
and Black Lake revetment along the Red River, AR. The Committee 
supports efforts to develop new methods to meet emergency 
streambank protection needs along the Red River.
    Los Angeles County drainage area, California.--The 
Committee recommendation includes $40,000,000 for the Los 
Angeles County drainage area flood control project in 
California. The budget request of $11,000,000 for the project 
is completely insufficient to maintain the construction 
schedule and would result in as much as a 5-year delay in 
project completion. Such a delay would result in $200,000,000 
loss in potential flood control benefits and an additional 
$130,000,000 in increased flood insurance premiums for the 
area.
    Los Angeles Harbor, CA.--An appropriation of $45,000,000 is 
recommended for the Los Angeles Harbor project in California. 
This is $33,000,000 over the budget for fiscal year 1998. The 
Committee understands that the Corps of Engineers could utilize 
$69,000,000 to maintain optimum progress on this project which 
contributes billions of dollars to the national economy through 
export and import of goods, direct and indirect employment, and 
associated economic activity generated in the region. However, 
because of the Administration's totally inadequate budget 
request, the Committee is unable to provide the full amount 
required for 1999. The recommendation includes reimbursement to 
the local sponsor as appropriate.
    Marysville/Yuba City, CA.--An amount of $5,746,000 has been 
included by the Committee to continue work on flood control 
levee work in the Marysville and Yuba City area of California. 
The Committee understands that a levee break during the January 
1997 flood caused loss of life and substantial property damage 
in the area. The Committee believes that the totally inadequate 
funding request for fiscal year 1999 leaves the area in 
jeopardy to flooding and has, therefore, provided additional 
funding for fiscal year 1999.
    Faulkner Island, CT.--Funding in the amount of $2,600,000 
is provided for the Corps to complete the construction of the 
Faulkner Island Lighthouse shoreline protection project in 
Connecticut.
    Central and southern Florida.--The Committee has provide 
$25,000,000 for the central and southern Florida project. The 
Upper St. John's portion of the project has not been reduced 
from that proposed in the President's budget.
    Dade County, FL.--The Committee has included $2,500,000 to 
continue the Dade County, FL, beach erosion control project, 
including project modifications at Sunny Isles and other 
activities related to advancing the project.
    Miami Harbor Channel, FL.--An appropriation of $8,000,000 
is provided for the Miami Harbor Channel, Florida project to 
initiate a general reevaluation report to determine the 
feasibility of additional channel deepening, and to provide 
reimbursement to local sponsors as appropriate.
    Panama City Beaches, FL.--Funding in the amount of 
$5,000,000 has been included for the Panama City Beaches 
project in Florida. The funds will be used to reimburse the 
local sponsor for the Federal share of construction costs. The 
Committee understands that the State and local officials 
believe that the restoration of hurricane protection for the 
area is essential and are proceeding to construct the project 
under authorities which allow reimbursement.
    Chicago Shoreline, IL.--The Committee has provided 
$6,000,000, an increase of $1,000,000 over the budget request, 
for the Chicago Shoreline project in Illinois. The recommended 
funding will be used to complete construction of reach 5, and 
to continue construction and design in reaches 2 and 4. If 
additional funding is needed in fiscal year 1999 the Corps is 
urged to consider reprogramming actions as appropriate.
    McCook and Thornton Reservoirs, IL.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $2,500,000 for the Corps to continue 
construction of the McCook and Thornton Reservoirs, IL, 
project. The budget request for fiscal year 1999 provided only 
$900,000 and resulted in an extended completion schedule. The 
funding recommended by the Committee will allow construction of 
this important project to proceed on a more efficient schedule.
    O'Hare Reservoir, IL.--An amount of $1,000,000 has been 
provided for the O'Hare Reservoir project in Illinois. The 
funding is provided to complete project construction, including 
payment of settled contractor claims as appropriate.
    Indianapolis central waterfront, Indiana.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $4,000,000 for the Corps to continue 
construction of the Indianapolis central waterfront project in 
Indiana.
    Wabash River, New Harmony, IN.--An appropriation of 
$2,000,000 is recommended for the Wabash River, New Harmony 
flood control project in Indiana. The funding provided herein 
will be used to complete construction of this project which 
will provide critical flood protection to New Harmony, IN. 
Congress appropriated funding to begin construction in fiscal 
year 1998, but OMB refused to allow the Corps to award a 
contract for construction. This has resulted in extended delay 
in construction completion and in the area benefiting from this 
much needed flood protection.
    Missouri River Fish and Wildlife mitigation, Iowa, 
Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri.--The Committee recommendation 
for the Missouri River Fish and Wildlife Mitigation project 
provides $8,000,000 to continue critical fish and wildlife 
mitigation activities along the Missouri River. The budget 
request severely underfunded the project and the Committee 
recommendation will significantly advance the project 
completion schedule.
    Arkansas City, KS.--The Committee recognized the importance 
of the Arkansas City flood control project in Kansas and has 
provided $4,000,000 to continue construction of this critical 
project in fiscal year 1999.
    Kentucky lock and dam, Kentucky.--An appropriation of 
$7,500,000 is recommended for the Kentucky lock and dams 
replacement project. The Corps of Engineers budget request did 
not include continued funding which would result in 
unacceptable delays in the completion schedule for the project. 
The funding provided by the Committee will be used to continue 
design, relocation activities, and other essential work to 
accelerate the construction schedule.
    Lake Pontchartrain storm water discharge, Louisiana.--The 
Committee has included $6,000,000 to continue the construction 
and water quality monitoring activities of the Lake 
Pontchartrain storm water discharge project in Louisiana.
    Lake Pontchartrain and vicinity, Louisiana.--The Committee 
has provided an additional $10,000,000 for this project which 
is to be used by the Corps of Engineers to continue critical 
construction of parallel protection along Orleans and London 
Avenue Canals and other authorized fronting, drainage, and 
flood proofing features. It should be pointed out that the 
budget request was substantially below the amount needed by the 
Corps to keep the project on schedule. The amount recommended 
by the Committee will help mitigate the delays proposed in the 
budget.
    Red River Waterway, Mississippi River to Shreveport, LA.--
The Committee recognizes the need to refine the Red River 
Waterway navigation channel in order to ensure that it is 
reliable and safe, and to reduce maintenance dredging costs. 
Therefore, the Committee has recommended additional funding for 
fiscal year 1999 to undertake reinforcements, dikes, and 
capouts, and to continue design and construct measures 
necessary to provide for a safe, reliable, and efficient 
navigation channel.
    Chesapeake Bay Environmental Restoration and Protection 
Program, Maryland.--Funding of $500,000 has been provided under 
the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Restoration and Protection 
Program for the Corps of Engineers to provide design and 
construction assistance for water-related environmental 
infrastructure and resource protection and development projects 
affecting the Chesapeake Bay estuary. Budget constraint have 
limited the Committee's ability to recommend additional funding 
for this project in fiscal year 1999.
    Ocean City and vicinity, Assateague Island, MD.--The 
Committee is aware of the Corps' efforts to repair storm damage 
to the north end of Assateague Island and recognizes the 
importance of protecting this section of the island from the 
effects of storms until the mitigation project authorized in 
section 534 of Public Law 104-303 can be initiated. The 
Committee urges the Corps to carryout the work in a manner 
which compliments the mitigation project and will not interfere 
with the piping plover nesting season.
    Poplar Island, MD.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$7,000,000 for the Poplar Island project in Maryland. The 
budget request proposed only $157,000 to continue this project 
in fiscal year 1999. The Committee understands that issues 
which have delayed progress on this project have now been 
resolved and construction can proceed. The Committee expects 
the Corps to move to return the project to an orderly schedule 
and to make sufficient funding available to accomplish this 
task.
    Missouri River levee system, L-385, Missouri.--The 
Committee recommendation includes $400,000 for the Corps to 
proceed with completion of engineering and design for the L-385 
project and to begin construction of that portion of the 
project.
    Natchez Bluffs, MS.--The Committee has provided $5,000,000 
for the Corps of Engineers to continue construction of measures 
to prevent destruction of property and to reduce the threat of 
loss of life from bluff failures at Natchez Bluffs, MS. The 
funding included in the bill will be used to complete design 
and continue construction activities.
    Pascagoula Harbor, MS.--An appropriation of $10,000,000 is 
recommended for the Pascagoula Harbor, MS, project authorized 
by the Water Resources Development Act of 1986. No funding was 
requested in the Corps' fiscal year 1999 budget, therefore, 
additional funding is needed to avoid significant delays and 
increased project costs.
    North Fork Border Monitoring Station, Montana.--The Corps 
is directed to use $40,000 of available funds to complete the 
reestablishment and of an operational monitoring station on the 
North Fork of the Flathead River in Montana for which funding 
was provided in last years bill.
    Acequias irrigation system, New Mexico.--The Committee is 
concerned with the progress being made on the Acequias 
irrigation system rehabilitation project in New Mexico. In an 
effort to resolve issues related to the project, the Committee 
expects the Corps to undertake efforts to strengthen its 
communication and coordination efforts with state and local 
interests; to explore ways to reduce or eliminate breaks in 
agreements; and to streamline its environmental and other 
documentation, where possible, so that work can be accomplished 
without disruption. The Committee has provided $600,000 to 
continue the project in fiscal year 1999.
    Wilmington Harbor channel widening, North Carolina.--The 
Committee has included $8,000,000, $2,700,000 over the budget 
request, to continue construction of the modified Wilmington 
Harbor project in fiscal year 1999. The recommended funding 
will be used to award a contract for mitigation and disposal 
areas, continue design of other project features, accomplish 
test blasting, and undertake environmental monitoring and 
documentation of structures for preblast conditions.
    Buford-Trenton irrigation district, North Dakota.--An 
appropriation of $5,000,000 is recommended for the Corps of 
Engineers for the Buford-Trenton Irrigation District project in 
North Dakota to complete the last of the land appraisals and 
continue acquisition of easements from willing sellers.
    Devils Lake, ND.--The Committee is aware that the city of 
Devils Lake faces a chronic flood emergency as a result of the 
dramatic rise of Devils Lake over the past 5 years. In response 
to this emergency, the Committee has provided $5,000,000 in 
additional funds for construction by the Corps of an emergency 
outlet. The Committee is prepared to approve a transfer of 
funds or to provide further funding in a supplemental 
appropriation if circumstances warrant more accelerated 
construction of the outlet. It is expected that such 
circumstances would also be such that granting of a waiver 
under the emergency provision of the National Environmental 
Policy Act would be appropriate and that the provision of the 
1909 Boundary Waters Treaty would be met.
    Orchard Beach, NY.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$1,000,000 for the Corps to continue engineering and design, 
including borrow area investigations surveys, and NEPA analysis 
and coordination on the Orchard Beach project in New York. No 
funding was included in the Corps' budget for fiscal year 1999, 
therefore, follow-on funding is provided in order to mitigate 
completion schedule delays and cost increases.
    West Columbus, OH.--The budget request for fiscal year 1999 
for the West Columbus, OH, flood control project was 
$1,800,000, significantly below the amount needed by the Corps 
of Engineers to maintain anticipated schedules without extended 
delays. The Committee recommendation provides $7,500,000 for 
fiscal year 1999 in order to mitigate schedule delays and cost 
increases. The recommended funding will be used to complete 
construction of levee and floodwalls upstream of Town Street, 
initiate construction below Town Street, and undertake other 
related construction activities.
    Willamette temperature control device, Oregon.--The Army 
Corps of Engineers shall report to the appropriate committees 
of Congress by January 15, 1999, on the reasons the projected 
construction costs for the Willamette temperature control 
device, Oregon project, authorized under section 101(a)(25) of 
the Water Resources Development Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-
303), have risen from $38,000,000 to over $77,000,000. The 
Corps will also outline the steps it is taking to control 
construction costs on the project, and whether--in light of 
these significant cost increases--it is looking at lower cost 
alternatives for achieving the temperature control goals at 
these reservoirs.
    Locks and dams 2, 3, and 4, Monongahela River, PA.--The 
budget request for the locks and dams 2, 3, and 4 project on 
the Monongahela River in Pennsylvania included only $5,000,000, 
$25,000,000 short of the $30,000,000 needed by the Corps to 
maintain an optimum construction schedule. The Committee 
understands that the locks are in an advanced state of 
deterioration and that the proposed budget request for fiscal 
year would severely impact the Corps' efforts to proceed with 
the project. Budget constraints have not allowed the Committee 
to recommend the full amount needed by the Corps. However, 
$23,000,000 is provided to continue ongoing activities, and to 
perform municipal relocations, complete the construction 
contract for abutment and lock riverwall adjustments, and to 
award the contract for the new lock 2, if possible.
    Schuykill River Park, PA.--The Committee directs the Corps 
to complete by December 1, 1998, the report referred to in 
subsection 564(c) of the Water Resources Development Act of 
1996 regarding work to be performed by the Corps on the 
Schuykill River Park project.
    Brays Bayou, Houston, TX.--The Committee has provided 
$3,000,000 to reimburse the non-Federal sponsor a portion of 
the Federal share of the costs for completed construction of 
discreet segments of work for the Brays Bayou, TX, project 
which the Secretary of the Army has approved for reimbursement.
    North Padre Island flood protection and environmental 
restoration project, Texas.--The Committee understands that the 
North Padre Island flood protection and environmental 
restoration project will provide flood protection to thousands 
of residents of Nueces County, TX, as well as important 
economic and resource conservation benefits to the region. The 
Committee directs the Corps to continue and complete all 
studies necessary to evaluate the feasibility of this project, 
and to initiate preconstruction engineering and design 
activities.
    Columbia River juvenile fish mitigation, Washington, 
Oregon, and Idaho.--The Committee continues to support the 
Columbia River juvenile fish mitigation program and has 
provided $95,000,000, the same funding level that was provided 
for the current fiscal year, to continue the project in fiscal 
year 1999. The reduction below the budget request for fiscal 
year 1999 is made without prejudice and reflects overall budget 
constraints.
    The Committee is aware of a recent GAO audit which 
indicates that a significant portion of the Corps' fish 
mitigation work has experienced delays and cost overruns. The 
Committee believes this is unacceptable and directs the Corps 
to report to the Committee on actions the Corps will implement 
to correct the problems outlined by GAO.
    Last year, the conference committee requested the Northwest 
Power Planning Council's Independent Scientific Advisory Board 
[SAB] to conduct a review of the major fish mitigation capital 
construction activities proposed for implementation in the 
Columbia River Federal Power System. The first phase of the 
review is scheduled for completion by June 30. The Committee 
directs the Corps to not advertise or award any new 
construction contracts relating to the first phase of the 
ISAB's review prior to its completion. Pending Committee 
consideration of the review, the Committee may wish to revisit 
this issue during conference.
    The Committee recommendation supports the full amount 
requested for the Corps to undertake phase I only of the John 
Day Reservoir drawdown study as outlined in the Corps' scoping 
document and report dated February 11, 1998.
    Snake River Dam modifications, Washington.--The Committee 
is concerned about recent techniques employed by the Corps in 
attempting to determine the impacts of Snake River Dam removal 
on recreational river users. The use of financial incentives in 
surveying river users and the practice of misleading recipients 
of the survey are questionable. The Committee expects the Corps 
to work objectively in assessing the true impacts of any dam 
removal on the entire region.
    Levisa and Tug Forks of the Big Sandy River and Upper 
Cumberland River, WV-KY-VA.--The Committee has provided a total 
of $41,800,000 for the Levisa and Tug Forks of the Big Sandy 
River and Upper Cumberland River project.
    The Committee recommendation includes $10,500,000 to 
continue the Harlan, KY, element of the project; $1,500,000 for 
the Williamsburg, KY, element of the project; $4,900,000 for 
the Pike County (Tug Fork) element; and $5,000,000 for 
continuation of flood proofing on the Middlesboro, KY, element 
of the project; $2,000,000 for the Cumberland City/Harland 
County, KY, detailed project report; and $4,600,000 for the 
Martin County, KY, element.
    The Committee recommendation also includes $1,600,000 for 
the Upper Mingo County, including Mingo County tributaries, 
West Virginia, element; $3,600,000 for the Kermit, Lower Mingo 
County (Kermit), WV, element; $1,800,000 for the Wayne County, 
WV, element; $300,000 for the Hatfield Bottom, WV, 
nonstructural element of the Levisa and Tug Forks of the Big 
Sandy River and Upper Cumberland River (sec. 202) project; and 
$5,000,000 for the McDowell County, WV, element.
    Finally, $1,000,000 is provided for the Grundy, VA, 
element.
    Marmet lock, Kanawha River, WV.--An appropriation of 
$4,000,000 is provided for the Marmet lock, West Virginia 
project. The recommended funding will be used to continue 
acquisition of hardship real estate tracts, and other 
construction activities, including geology and foundation-
related work, and the lock design memorandum.
    LaFarge Lake, WI.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$1,000,000 for the Corps to undertake environmental compliance 
and remediation work, complete NEPA documents, undertake 
sampling and remediation of identified contamination sites, and 
carryout site safety activities related to project water 
control structures at the LaFarge Lake project in Wisconsin.
    Aquatic plant control program.--The Committee has included 
$4,000,000 to continue the aquatic plant control program. In 
light of severe budget constraints and the fact that this is a 
nationwide program, the Committee believes it inappropriate to 
earmark the small amount of funding available for fiscal year 
1997. The appropriations are to undertake the highest priority 
activities. The Committee recognizes that there is a shortage 
of funding to harvest nuisance aquatic plants, while there are 
other programs to aid aquatic plant control research. 
Therefore, the Committee urges the Corps to place a higher 
priority on actual plant control through funding provided in 
this account.
    Emergency streambank and shoreline protection, (sec. 14).--
The Committee recommendation for section 14, emergency

    Shoreline protection policy.--The Committee continues to be 
troubled by the administration's policy regarding the Federal 
role in shore protection projects and smaller navigation 
projects. While these proposals would only directly affect the 
coastal States, including the Great Lakes States, the impacts 
of terminating the Federal Government's role in protecting our 
shorelines and maintaining small boat harbors would be felt 
throughout the Nation. The Committee again strongly urges the 
OMB and executive branch to recognizes the importance and 
contribution these types of projects make to the economic well-
being of the country, and to place a higher priority on shore 
protection and small navigation projects in future budgets.

    The Committee is again concerned by the continued, severe 
reductions for the Mississippi River and tributaries [MR&T;] 
project. The Committee feels this is unacceptable when only a 
few short years ago the Mississippi was experiencing 
devastating flooding. The Mississippi River has the third 
largest drainage basin in the world, exceeded in size only by 
the Amazon and Congo River watersheds. It drains a total of 
1,245,00 square miles, covering all or part of 31 States and 
two Canadian Provinces. Water from as far east as New York and 
as far west as Wyoming contribute to floods in the lower 
Mississippi River Valley, flowing through the basin roughly 
resembling a funnel which has its spout at the Gulf of Mexico.
    Therefore, flood control and protection along the 
Mississippi River and its tributaries is not an option, it is 
mandatory. The floods of 1993 demonstrated this importance by 
averting $8,100,000,000 in damages. Over the years, the MR&T; 
project has saved and estimated $150,000,000,000 in flood 
damages based on a Federal investment of $8,121,000,000. 
Another outcome of the recent floods is the need to raise and 
strengthen numerous section of levees. The proposed $65,000,000 
reduction below the appropriation for 1998 severely impacts 
this effort and increases the likelihood of higher disaster 
payments as the result of major flooding.
    In action of the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act 
of 1998, Congress directed no fully allocated funding policy be 
applied to projects funded in the current year. Given the 
detrimental and adverse impacts to the Nation and the 
Mississippi River and tributaries area, the Committee directs 
the Secretary of the Army, acting through the Chief of 
Engineers to continue ongoing construction and expedite award 
of contracts, using continuing contracts, in fiscal year 1999 
to alleviate continued flooding and suffering affected areas.
    Southeast Arkansas, including Boeuf-Tensas area, study, 
Arkansas.--An appropriation of $500,000 is recommended for the 
southeast Arkansas study, including the Boeuf-Tensas area. The 
funding will allow the Corps to continue feasibility studies to 
address flooding, water supply, and environmental needs in the 
southeastern portion of Arkansas.
    Bonnet Carre' spillway, maintenance, Louisiana.--Funding of 
$2,200,000 is provided for the Bonnet Carre' spillway, 
Louisiana. project to perform operation and maintenance 
activities, and to replace two cranes at the facility.
    Donaldsonville to the Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana.--The 
Committee has included $100,000 for the Corps of Engineers to 
undertake a reconnaissance study of rainfall, tidal, and 
hurricane flooding between Bayou Lafourche and Donaldsonville, 
LA, and the Gulf of Mexico.
    Mississippi Delta region, Davis Pond, LA.--An additional 
$2,000,000 is recommended for the Mississippi Delta region, 
Davis Pond, LA project to expedite construction due to 
anticipated increases in contractor earning and, where 
possible, to initiate work to mitigate negative impacts caused 
by the freshwater diversion.
    Yazoo basin backwater project, MR&T.--The; Committee is 
aware of the frequent flooding being experienced in the Yazoo 
backwater portion of the Mississippi Delta located just north 
of Vicksburg, MS. Work on this project was initiated in March 
1986, but was delayed for reformulation of the project to 
consider alternatives. The Committee understands that the 
project reformulation is scheduled for completion in fiscal 
year 1999 and has provided $500,000 to initiate design of the 
reformulated project.
    Yazoo basin, Big Sunflower River, MR&T.--The; Committee has 
provided an additional $1,500,000 for the Corps to expedite 
various features of the Big Sunflower River, MS, project.
    Yazoo basin, demonstration erosion control, MR&T.--An; 
additional $9,600,000 is recommended for the demonstration 
erosion control project, to continue a joint effort by the 
Corps of Engineers and the Natural Resources Conservation 
Service in the Yazoo basin of the Mississippi. The funds 
provided will permit the Corps to undertake additional flood 
water retarding structures, pipe and culvert grade control 
structures, channel improvements, and bank stabilization items 
in various watersheds. Design of future work, acquisition of 
real estate and monitoring of results will be accomplished for 
all watersheds in order to facilitate work in fiscal year 1999 
and for all future work as required for completion of the total 
program. The Committee expects the administration to continue 
to request funds for this important project.
    Yazoo basin maintenance.--The Committee has been informed 
of inadequate maintenance of road surfaces and slides on 
Mississippi levees in the Yazoo basin. Additional levee 
maintenance funding has been provided for the Corps to address 
this problem. In addition, head-cutting and severe erosion 
control problems in the Yazoo basin continue to threaten 
structures. The Corps is directed to use the funds provided for 
operation and maintenance to begin addressing these growing 
problems and other priority maintenance needs, and to 
coordinate its efforts with local sponsors.

    The Committee continues to believe that it is essential to 
provide adequate resources and attention to operation and 
maintenance requirements in order to protect the large Federal 
investment. Yet current and projected budgetary constraints 
require the Committee to limit the amount of work that can be 
accomplished in the fiscal year. In order to cope with the 
current situation, the Corps has had to defer or delay 
scheduled maintenance activities.
    Maintenance backlogs continue to grow with much of the 
backlog being essential maintenance dredging needed to keep the 
Nation's ports, harbors, and waterways open and able to 
efficiently handle important national and international trade 
activities. Yet the Committee is aware that out-year budget 
planning guidance for the Corps of Engineers projects that the 
current appropriations for their critical operation and 
maintenance activities will continue to decline for the 
foreseeable future. If additional resources are not made 
available, the Committee will be forced to cut back on 
services, and begin to terminate and close many projects and 
activities.
    The Committee is aware of the Corps' efforts to stretch the 
limited resources to cover all of its projects and to effect 
savings through a variety of means. As more and more projects 
enter the inventory and budgetary constraints continue, it is 
clear that the Corps will need to find innovated ways to 
accomplish required O&M; work nationwide. Adjustment in lower 
priority programs and noncritical work should be made in 
conjunction with efforts to optimize the use of the limited 
resources in order to maximize the public benefit.

State-prepared design documents for the restoration, perform 
soil sample testing, coordinate with the State historic 
society, prepare NEPA documents, and modify plans and 
specification in preparation for project implementation.
    Columbia River navigation channel, Oregon and Washington.--
The Committee is aware that the authorized 40-foot Columbia 
River navigation channel is subject to shoaling at a number of 
locations in the river, causing restrictions in channel draft. 
The Committee directs the Corps to use its existing authorities 
to dredge a 5-foot overdraft; and, when appropriate, to conduct 
advance maintenance dredging to assure that project depth of 40 
feet is maintained to the maximum extent possible.
    Columbia and Lower Willamette Rivers, below Vancouver, WA, 
and Portland, OR.--The Committee is aware of the severely 
deteriorated condition of the north breakwater at Astoria east 
boat basin in Oregon. The Committee recommendation includes 
$4,800,000 for the Corps to proceed to initiate and complete 
rehabilitation of the eastern 400 feet of the north breakwater.
    Yaquina Bay and Harbor, North Marina breakwater, Oregon.--
The Committee has increased the funding for the Yaquina Bay and 
Harbor, OR project by $1,100,000 to allow the Corps to initiate 
the first phase of work to reconstruct the deteriorated North 
Marina breakwater.
    Charleston Harbor, SC.--The Committee has included an 
additional $900,000 for the Corps to undertake dike repair, 
ditching and dewatering the south cell of Clouter Creek 
disposal area in South Carolina.
    Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, SC.--An additional $200,000 
is provided for the Corps to dredge the McClellan branch of the 
Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in South Carolina.
    Big Bend Dam, Lake Sharpe, SD.--The Committee has included 
an additional $200,000 for the Corps to continue repairs to 
facilities damages in flooding at the Big Bend Dam, Lake 
Sharpe, SD, project.
    Fort Randall Dam, Lake Francis Case, SD.--The 
recommendation of $7,717,000 for the Fort Randall Dam, Lake

and $150,000 to repair facilities damaged by flooding.
    Connecticut River basin (master plan), Vermont.--The Corps 
of Engineers should, in the development of the Connecticut 
River basin master plan, coordinate their work with other 
environmental assessments which are also underway.
    Kennewick Man skeletal remains.--The Committee continues to 
be concerned that the Corps of Engineers is not acting in an 
impartial manner concerning the disposition of the Kennewick 
Man remains and notes recent actions by the Corps that resulted 
in the loss of a potential piece of the skeleton. The Committee 
continues to believe the Corps should work cooperatively with 
all affected interest groups in determining the treatment and 
disposition of the Kennewick Man skeleton. The Committee 
expects the Corps to act objectively in all areas concerning 
these remains and in resolving all questions surrounding access 
to and the study and disposition of the remains.
    Willapa River and Harbor, WA.--The Committee has been 
informed about the ongoing serious erosion problem at the 
Willapa River and Harbor, WA, navigation project. Congress 
provided an additional $2,425,000 in appropriations for the 
current fiscal year to help address the situation, but erosion 
continues to threaten public facilities. The Committee has 
provided an additional $500,000 for the Corps to finalize a 
plan to resolve this ongoing problem. In the interim, the Corps 
strongly urged to use available emergency funds, as 
appropriate, to protect threatened public facilities. Funding 
is also provided to determine whether the navigation channel 
can be maintained cost effectively.
    Bluestone Lake, WV.--The Committee has provided an 
additional $100,000 for the Corps of Engineers to complete a 
reevaluation study of a possible hydroelectric plant addition 
to the Bluestone Dam in West Virginia.
    In addition, the attention of the Corps of Engineers is 
directed to the following projects in need of maintenance or 
review and for which the Committee has received requests: the 
need for aquatic weed control in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta of 
Alabama.
    The Committee has been informed of the use by the 
Mississippi Valley Division of a new technology, passive 
microwave radiometry, to measure the soil moisture content 
along the Mississippi River levee system to locate areas of 
levee saturation and underseepage. The Committee supports the 
application of this type of new technology and encourages the 
Corps to expand its use, if appropriate. The Corps is requested 
to provide the Committee with a report on the effectiveness and 
cost comparison of microwave radiometry in levee monitoring and 
other relevant applications, including advisability of 
expanding the use of the technology.

                           regulatory program

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $106,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     117,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     106,000,000

    An appropriation of $106,000,000 is recommended for 
regulatory programs of the Corps of Engineers.
    This appropriation provides for salaries and related costs 
to administer laws pertaining to regulation of navigable waters 
and wetlands of the United States in accordance with the Rivers 
and Harbors Act of 1899, the Clean Water Act of 1977, and the 
Marine Protection Act of 1972.
    The Committee is concerned that the Corps has not proceeded 
to fully implement the administrative appeals process for which 
funding was provided last year. The Committee recommendation, 
while holding the Regulatory Program at the 1998 level of 
funding, supports the implementation of the administrative 
appeals process, including appeals related to jurisdictional 
determinations. The Corps is to report to the Committee on its 
progress in implementing the program at the hearing on the 
fiscal year 2000 budget request.
    The Committee recommendation includes $320,000 for the 
Corps to initiate and complete the Yellowstone River special 
area management plan, Gardiner to Springdale, MT, study which 
will assess the long-term effects of streambank stabilization. 
Information provided by the study should help in making timely 
decisions based on a watershed approach, and possibly result in 
a general permit for the area. The Committee expects that this 
effort will be coordinated with the Yellowstone River task 
force.

                 Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies

Appropriations, 1998....................................      $4,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................................
Committee recommendation................................................

    This activity provides for flood emergency preparation, 
flood fighting and rescue operations, and repair of flood 
control and Federal hurricane or shore protection works. It 
also provides for emergency supplies of clean drinking water 
where the source has been contaminated and in drought 
distressed areas, provision of adequate supplies of water for 
human and livestock consumption.
    The Committee understands that, based on the average yearly 
funding requirement, additional appropriations are not required 
for fiscal year 1999.

            formerly utilized sites remedial action program

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $140,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     140,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     140,000,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $140,000,000 
to continue activities related to the Formerly Utilized Sites 
Remedial Action Program [FUSRAP] in fiscal year 1999. This is 
the same as the amount requested.
    The responsibility for the cleanup of contaminated sites 
under the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program 
[FUSRAP] was transferred to the Army Corps of Engineers in the 
Fiscal Year 1998 Energy and Water Development Appropriations 
Act, Public Law 105-62. The Committee is concerned that the 
Department of Energy and the Corps of Engineers have not been 
able to enter into an agreement on the functions of the program 
assumed by the Corps and, therefore, finds it necessary to 
include clarifying language in this year's bill.
    The FUSRAP Program is not specifically defined by statute. 
The program was established in 1974 under the broad authority 
of the Atomic Energy Act and, until fiscal year 1998, funds for 
the cleanup of contaminated sites have been appropriated to the 
Department of Energy through existing appropriation accounts. 
In appropriating FUSRAP funds to the Corps of Engineers, the 
Committee intended to transfer only the responsibility for 
administration and execution of cleanup activities at eligible 
sites where remediation had not been completed. It did not 
intend to transfer ownership of and accountability for real 
property interests that remain with the Department of Energy.
    The Corps of Engineers has extensive experience in the 
cleanup of hazardous, toxic, and radioactive wastes through its 
work for the Department of Defense and other Federal agencies. 
The Committee always intended for the Corps expertise be used 
in the same manner for the cleanup of contaminated sites under 
FUSRAP. The Committee expects the Corps to continue programming 
and budgeting for FUSRAP as part of the civil works program.
    The Committee directs DOE and the Corps of Engineers to 
enter into a memorandum of understanding [MOU] to remedy any 
misunderstanding that may exist between the two agencies as to 
the roles and responsibilities related to the cleanup program. 
Such an MOU is essential to improving the exchange of 
information and resolution of future issues.

                            general expenses

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $148,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     148,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     148,000,000

    This appropriation finances the expenses of the Office, 
Chief of Engineers, the Division Offices, and certain research 
and statistical functions of the Corps of Engineers. The 
Committee recommends an appropriation of $148,000,000.

Budget estimate, 1999...................................      40,948,000
Committee recommendation................................      44,948,000

    The Committee recommendation for fiscal year 1999 to carry 
out the provisions of the Central Utah Project Completion Act 
is $44,948,000. An appropriation of $28,189,000 has been 
provided for Central Utah project construction and $10,476,000 
for commission activities.
    The Central Utah Project Completion Act (titles II-VI of 
Public Law 102-575) provides for the completion of the central 
Utah project by the Central Utah Water Conservancy District. 
The act also authorizes the appropriation of funds for fish, 
wildlife, and recreation mitigation and conservation; 
establishes an account in the Treasury for the deposit of these 
funds and of other contributions for mitigation and 
conservation activities; and establishes a Utah Reclamation 
Mitigation and Conservation Commission to administer funds in 
that account. The act further assigns responsibilities for 
carrying out the act to the Secretary of the Interior and 
prohibits delegation of those responsibilities to the Bureau of 
Reclamation.

    Central Arizona project, Arizona.--The Committee has 
recommended an appropriation of $46,218,000 for the central 
Arizona project. The Committee understands that the budget 
request for fiscal year 1999 included $560,000 for the Tucson 
Reliability Division of the central Arizona project for use on 
feasibility investigations and facilities planning for CAP 
reliability options; and that affected stakeholders had 
differing desires on the level of funding for these studies. 
Discussion among the parties resulted in agreement on a budget 
of $370,000 for the Tucson reliability work for fiscal year 
1999, resulting in a $190,000 reduction in the amount of 
funding that is needed. Field reviews are to be kept to a 
minimum as well as land, design, and fish and wildlife 
activities.
    The Committee has also recommended a reduction of 
$3,500,000 in project fish and wildlife coordination, 
mitigation, and native species activities.
    Central Valley project, American River Division, 
California.--The Committee recommendation includes a total of 
$5,000,000 for the Bureau of Reclamation to make the site 
selection and initiate construction of a permanent replacement 
pumping facility for the Placer County Water Agency. No funding 
is included for the Folsom Dam temperature control device due 
to lack of construction authorization.

rural, and irrigation facilities.
    San Juan River Gallup, Mount Taylor pipeline, NM.--The 
Committee is pleased with the cooperation and signing of the 
memorandum of agreement regarding conducting a feasibility 
study of a pipeline to provide water from Mount Taylor mine in 
New Mexico. The Committee directs the Bureau of Reclamation to 
move expeditiously on activities necessary to confirm the 
quantity and quality of the water available at the mine. An 
amount of $200,000 has been provided to insure there are no 
delays due to funding constraints.
    San Juan Gallup-Navajo water supply study, New Mexico.--The 
Committee has recommended $150,000 for the Bureau of 
Reclamation to complete the feasibility report and initiate 
NEPA compliance activities for the San Juan Gallup-Navajo water 
supply study in New Mexico.
    Upper Rio Grande water operations model study, New 
Mexico.--The Committee directs the Bureau of Reclamation to use 
available funds to continue the Upper Rio Grande water 
operations model study at the current year level of funding of 
$400,000.
    Upper Rio Grande Basin Water Management and Technical 
Assistance Program, New Mexico.--The Committee has provided an 
increase of $2,000,000 for the Bureau of Reclamation to

Settlement Agreement. The Committee expects the Bureau to 
expedite this work and to keep the Committee informed of its 
progress.
    Laughlin Lagoon, NV.--The Committee recommendation includes 
sufficient funding for the Bureau of Reclamation to clean up 
and dredge the Laughlin Lagoon along the Colorado River in 
Nevada. The Committee has been informed that the Bureau of 
Reclamation has acknowledged its obligation to maintain and 
correct deficiencies caused by work previously undertaken by 
the Bureau. The Committee expects the Bureau to move 
expeditiously to accomplish the planned cleanup and dredging 
activities.
    Klamath project, Oregon.--The Committee has provided the 
full amount requested in the budget for the Klamath project in 
Oregon and supports the program as described in the Bureau of 
Reclamation's budget justification.
    Dakota water management and technical assistance, South 
Dakota.--The Committee recommendation includes a total of 
$250,000, an increase of $125,000, for the Bureau of 
Reclamation to continue the Black Hill, SD, water management 
study.
    Lake Andes-Wagner project, South Dakota.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $150,000 for the Bureau of Reclamation 
to undertake an environmental impact statement [EIS] for the 
Lake Andes-Wagner project in South Dakota. The EIS is needed to 
determine the feasibility of possible future project 
construction.
    Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Program.--In reviewing 
the out-year costs for the Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research 
Center, the Committee is concerned with the potential expansion 
of the program and program costs. It appears that the scope of 
work is expanding beyond that authorized by the Grand Canyon 
Protection Act and prescribed by the environmental impact 
statement and record of decision. The Committee directs the 
Department to remain at budget levels for fiscal years 1998-99 
for the Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center.
    Endangered species recovery implementation.--The Committee 
has provided $1,000,000, an increase of $541,000, for the 
Bureau of Reclamation to undertake additional endangered 
species implementation activities in the San Juan River basin.
    Reclamation recreation management--title XXVIII.--An 
additional $2,700,000 is included to allow the Bureau of 
Reclamation to participate in a meaningful way in a cost-shared 
program with the State of New Mexico in recreation facility 
improvements under title XXVIII of the Reclamation Projects 
Authorization and Adjustments Act, Public Law 102-575. The 
Committee is informed that the State has been financing these 
projects unilaterally and that an imbalance has existed in the 
allocation of funding through this program. The recommended 
funding will help correct this situation.
    Competing water demands evaluation.--The Committee is 
informed by the authorizing committee that the Bureau of 
Reclamation plans to complete evaluations of current practices 
on at least one project in each of its 26 area offices, with 
the goal of finding ways to more effectively manage competing 
demands for water and of their concerns in this regard. 
Therefore, the Committee directs that none of the funds 
provided herein or made available in prior years be used for 
such evaluation until specifically authorized by Congress.

               California bay-delta ecosystem restoration

Appropriations, 1998....................................     $85,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     143,300,000
Committee recommendation................................      65,000,000

    An appropriation of $65,000,000 is recommended for the 
California Bay-Delta Ecosystem Restoration [CALFED] Program.
    The CALFED Program was established in May 1995 for the 
purpose of developing a comprehensive, long-term solution to 
the complex and interrelated problems in the San Francisco Bay-
Delta area of California. The program's focus is on the health 
of the ecosystem and improving water management. In addition, 
this program addresses the issues of uncertain water supplies, 
aging levees, and threatened water quality.
    The fiscal year budget proposes funding of $143,300,000, an 
increase of $58,300,000 over the amount appropriated for fiscal 
year 1998. While the Committee is unable to provide the full 
budget request due to severe budget constraints, much progress 
has been made over the past year to establish a strong project 
selection process. While CALFED is an important initiative, it 
must compete with other important programs during a time of 
reduced budget allocations and constraints. The Committee 
believes that the long-term success of the program is not 
dependent so much upon the level of funding as it does on the 
quality of the projects selected, and performance and ecosystem 
health monitoring measures to gauge the effectiveness of 
completed activities and projects. As stated last year, it will 
take time for the program to mature. The allocation of the 
current year appropriation was completed only recently, and 
construction or implementation work on most projects is just 
beginning. Further, financial and accounting systems essential 
to proper funds management are not fully in place.
    The Committee, therefore, believes that a substantial 
expansion of the program at this time could adversely impact 
the program's overall success and the proper use of the 
resources committed to the program.
    In providing this funding, the Committee understands and 
anticipates that the ecosystem roundtable's revised priority 
setting and coordinated funding allocation process will be in 
place and underway as part of the timely allocation and 
distribution process. The Committee also expects to see 
significant steps toward improved program coordination and 
integration reflected in each quarterly report to congress, 
including, but not limited to key elements of the CALFED and 
CVPIA program.
    The Committee continues to be concerned that the CALFED, 
CVPIA, and related activities under the Central Valley project 
work in water and related resources duplicate and overlap each 
other. The Bureau of Reclamation and the Department of the 
Interior are to explore ways to consolidate this work into a 
single program in order to more clearly and simple display to 
total effort on ecosystem restoration activities.

               bureau of reclamation loan program account

Appropriations, 1998....................................     $10,425,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................      12,425,000
Committee recommendation................................      12,425,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $12,425,000, 
the same as the budget request, for the small reclamation 
program of the Bureau of Reclamation.
    Under the Small Reclamation Projects Act (43 U.S.C. 422a-
422l), loans and/or grants can be made to non-Federal 
organizations for construction or rehabilitation and betterment 
of small water resource projects.
    As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990, this 
account records the subsidy costs associated with the direct 
loans, as well as administrative expenses of this program.
    The budget request and the approved Committee allowance are 
shown on the following table:

                central valley project restoration fund

Appropriations, 1998....................................     $33,130,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................      49,500,000
Committee recommendation................................      39,500,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $39,500,000 
for the Central Valley project restoration fund. Budget 
constraints have required the Committee to limit the activities 
to be funded through the Central Valley project restoration 
funds for fiscal year 1999. However, the amount recommended 
represents an increase of $6,000,000 over the current year 
level.
    The Central Valley project restoration fund was authorized 
in the Central Valley Project Improvement Act, title 34 of 
Public Law 102-575. This fund was established to provide 
funding from project beneficiaries for habitat restoration, 
improvement and acquisition, and other fish and wildlife 
restoration activities in the Central Valley project area of 
California. Revenues are derived from payments by project 
beneficiaries and from donations. Payments from project 
beneficiaries include several required by the act (Friant 
Division surcharges, higher charges on water transferred to 
non-CVP users, and tiered water prices) and, to the extent 
required in appropriations acts, additional annual mitigation 
and restoration payments.

                   policy and administrative expenses

Appropriations, 1998....................................     $47,558,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................      48,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      48,000,000

    The Committee recommendation for general administrative 
expenses is $48,000,000. This is the same as the budget 
request.
    The general administrative expenses program provides for 
the executive direction and management of all reclamation 
activities, as performed by the Commissioner's offices in 
Washington, DC, Denver, CO, and five regional offices. The 
Denver office and regional offices charge individual projects 
or activities for direct beneficial services and related 
administrative and technical costs. These charges are covered 
under other appropriations.

                    TITLE III--DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

    Title III provides for the Department of Energy's defense 
and nondefense functions, the power marketing administrations, 
and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
    In the Fiscal Year 1998 Energy and Water Development 
Appropriations Act, the Congress reorganized the Department of 
Energy's nondefense energy and science research programs to 
delineate the two areas of research. For fiscal year 1999, the 
Committee recommends two adjustments to the structure enacted 
last year. First, the magnetic fusion energy program is moved 
from energy research to science. Second, the Committee proposes 
a general provision to rename the Office of Energy Research; 
which, contrary to the implications of its name, does not 
manage the Department's energy research but rather its science 
programs, to the Office of Science Research. Consequently, the 
title of the Office's director becomes the Director of Science 
Research.

                  inappropriate use of appropriations

    The Committee has learned that funds made available to the 
Department of Energy by previous appropriations acts have been 
used to, among other things: pay for members of industry 
associations and associated entities to attend national and 
international conferences, publish magazines, purchase 
association membership information, conduct surveys of 
association membership, place op-ed style articles in 
publications, write talking points in support of the 
Department's programs, and underwrite industry conferences.
    The Committee has not included a statutory prohibition on 
these activities because the activities themselves are not at 
issue; there may be legitimate reasons for employees of the 
Department of Energy or its management and operating 
contractors to undertake the activities listed above. However, 
a distinction needs to be drawn between employees of the 
Department of Energy or its management and operating 
contractors who act on behalf of the Government and other 
contractors whose predominant responsibility is not to the 
Government. The Department and its management and operating 
contractors should not contract with any other entity for the 
performance of these or similar responsibilities, and, as a 
general rule, appropriated funds should not be used, directly 
or indirectly, to underwrite the expenses of industry 
associations or associated entities.

                         energy supply programs

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $906,807,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   1,129,042,000
Committee recommendation................................     699,836,000

                       solar and renewable energy

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $346,266,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     437,156,000
Committee recommendation................................     345,479,000

    This is the first Energy and Water Development 
Appropriations Act considered by the Committee following the 
signing of the Kyoto Global Climate Change Accord.
    The Committee is reluctant and unable to draw conclusions 
regarding the existence, extent, or affects of global climate 
change. However, in the face of uncertainty regarding global 
climate change and the human health effects of atmospheric 
pollution, prudence merits consideration be given to energy 
production technologies that reduce the emission of pollutants 
that accumulate in the atmosphere.
    In that regard, the Committee considers the 
administration's use of base-year metrics, that is: the 
recommendation that the United States reduce its emissions of 
certain pollutants to 1990 levels, to be an inappropriate 
metric. The Committee recommends that the accumulation of 
pollutants in the atmosphere be considered in terms of their 
historical concentrations; not their annual production rates 
since it is the concentration levels not the rate of 
accumulation which are alleged to have global climate change 
implications.
    When considered in those terms, the commitments made in 
Kyoto will have a negligible effect on the concentration of 
CO2 and other pollutants in the atmosphere. If 
prudence merits the development of new energy production 
technologies, it also requires a recognition that existing 
technology does not provide a means to meet increasing global 
energy requirements while stabilizing the production of 
atmospheric pollutants and certainly does not provide a means 
to reduce atmospheric pollution concentrations.
    The Committee has modified the request for low emission 
energy technologies; including solar and renewable and nuclear, 
with the view toward post 2010 application of new technologies. 
As a result, with few exceptions, the Committee recommends 
basic research that will provide significant improvements over 
existing technologies rather than on the deployment or 
incremental improvement of commercial or near commercial 
technologies. The Committee is well aware of the proposition 
that appropriated funds can demonstrate the reliable operation 
of low emission technologies before they become commercially 
attractive. In a few cases, the Committee has provided funds 
for just such demonstrations. However, in general, the 
Committee expects non-Federal financing to support the final 
stages of product development and all stages of market 
development.
    The Committee is aware that State and local governments as 
well as private companies interested in pursuing grants through 
the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, have been 
hampered by a lack of comprehensive grant information, and the 
Department's inability to fund projects which involve multiple 
renewable or energy efficiency technologies. These limitations 
are preventing worthy projects from receiving Federal 
assistance. To address this problem, the Committee urges DOE, 
in preparing its fiscal year 2000 budget, to consider and 
propose ways of integrating energy efficiency and renewable 
programs to facilitate assistance for cross-sector technologies 
and practices.
    Solar building technology research.--The Committee 
recommends $3,600,000 for solar building technology research. 
For space conditioning and water heating, the Committee 
provides $100,000 instead of the requested $500,000 and directs 
that the funds provided be used to improve computer models that 
predict the reliability of solar systems made of new materials. 
The Committee recommendation does not provide funds for 
precompetitive field validation.
    Photovoltaic energy systems.--The Committee recommends 
$57,110,000 for photovoltaic energy systems which includes 
$2,000,000 to support the ongoing research in photovoltaics 
conducted by the Southeast and Southwest regional photovoltaic 
experiment stations. Within that amount, the Committee has 
provided $4,921,000 for basic research/university programs. 
Within advanced materials and devices, the Committee 
recommendation includes $15,289,000 for thin-film partnerships. 
Within collector research and systems development, the 
Committee recommendation includes $9,000,000 for manufacturing 
research and development.
    Solar thermal energy systems.--The Committee recommendation 
includes $17,100,000 for solar thermal energy systems. Within 
this amount, $1,000,000 is provided for the dish/engine field 
verification initiative, $1,000,000 is provided for the solmat 
initiative, and no funds are provided for systems and markets/
industrial assistance.
    Biofuels.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$59,013,000 for biofuels energy systems. The Committee 
recommends that the funds provided be allocated in the 
following manner: within the ``Biopower systems'' account: 
$1,500,000 for thermochemical conversion, $10,000,000 for rural 
development, $2,300,000 for biomass/coal cofiring field 
validation, $4,000,000 for modular systems development, 
$1,000,000 for black-liquor gasification demonstration, and 
$2,500,000 for biomass for energy; within the ``Transportation 
biofuels'' account: $2,000,000 for advanced fermentation 
research and development, $2,500,000 for advanced cellulose 
research and development, $2,808,000 for pretreatment research 
and development, $1,000,000 for the plant biotechnology 
consortium, $8,690,000 for integrated process development, 
$9,065,000 for production facilities development, $550,000 for 
biodiesel production, $4,600,000 for feedstock production, and 
$2,500,000 for the regional biomass program.
    The Vermont Department of Public Service in cooperation 
with the Vermont Department of Agriculture and Agency for 
Natural Resources has proposed to initiate an energy 
demonstration project designed to demonstrate to the 
agricultural community both the physical and economic 
feasibility of capturing and utilizing methane from 
agricultural waste products for combined heat and power 
production on the farm. The Committee recommendation for 
biopower systems includes $695,000 for the Vermont methane 
energy production proposal.
    The Committee recommendation includes $250,000 to evaluate 
the amount, distribution, and best method of extraction and 
utilization of methane gas from the Sunrise Mountain Landfill 
in Nevada.
    The Committee is also aware of proposals to use switchgrass 
that is beneficial to control soil erosion as a fuel for 
electric generation, is supportive and recommends that the 
Department enter into cost-sharing partnerships to demonstrate 
these technologies if the non-Federal partners provide the 
required cost sharing.
    The Committee is aware of a biopower initiative at the 
Energy and Environmental Research Center [EERC]. The Committee 
recognizes the unique capabilities of the EERC to conduct 
laboratory and pilot plant research to evaluate and adapt 
existing technologies for cofiring, as well as to develop 
advanced technologies for combustion, gasification, and hot-gas 
cleaning, and encourages the Department to evaluate the 
biopower initiative and conduct cooperative work in this area 
with the EERC.
    Wind.--The Committee recommendation includes $33,200,000 
for wind energy systems. Within turbine research, $2,000,000 is 
provided for near-term research and testing, $5,000,000 for the 
next generation turbine project, $1,000,0000 for the small wind 
project, and $4,000,000 for supporting research, testing, and 
management. Within cooperative research and testing, a total of 
$3,000,000 is provided for industry support and utility 
analysis. The full amount of the request is provided for 
certification and standards development.
    Renewable energy production incentive program.--The 
Committee recommendation provides $3,000,000 for the renewable 
energy production incentives program.
    Solar program support.--The Committee strongly endorses the 
Department's efforts to provide technical analysis and 
assistance to Federal and State policymakers considering the 
role of renewable energy technologies in a deregulated 
electricity market. The Committee has provided the full amount 
of the request, $4,000,000, for that effort. The Committee 
supports aspects of the proposed 5-year open competition 
solicitation for renewable energy technologies in particular 
the proposed evaluation criteria; carbon and other pollution 
reduction, verification, and validation of technologies, 
replicability, and export potential. However, due to budget 
pressure, the Committee is unable to provide the requested 
$10,000,000 for this proposed new initiative.
    International solar energy.--The Committee supports the 
U.S. industry joint implementation agreement which received the 
totality of funds provided within international solar energy 
programs in the current year. The Committee supports the 
increased budget request of $3,400,000 for USIJI and provides 
the full amount of the request.
    The Committee has not provided funds for two proposed new 
initiatives; CORECT and the America's 21st century program.
    Geothermal.--The Committee recommends a total of 
$18,000,000 for geothermal technology development. Within that 
amount, $9,000,000 is recommended for exploration and 
production technology, $8,000,000 for drilling technology, and 
$1,000,000 for geothermal heat pump deployment.
    Hydrogen research.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$29,000,000 for the hydrogen research program, a $12,750,000 
increase over the current year. The Committee recommendation 
includes $3,500,000 for the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Power and 
Refueling Station project in Nevada, and $250,000 for the 
gasification of switchgrass and its use in fuel cells.
    The Committee understands that Billings, MT, stands in a 
rich resource area for the materials necessary for solid waste 
fuel cells. The Committee recommendation includes $500,000 for 
the Montana Trade Port Authority in Billings, MT, to complete a 
resource assessment and feasibility study on construction of a 
solid waste hydrogen fuel cell manufacturing facility in the 
community.
    Renewable Indian energy resources.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $4,000,000, the same amount as provided 
in the current year, for the renewable Indian energy resources 
program.
    Transmission reliability.--The Committee is concerned that 
the transition to a deregulated, competitive electricity market 
not be accompanied by a decrease in transmission system 
reliability. To that end, the Committee recommends $5,000,000 
to support a national laboratory-utility industry partnership 
to coordinate and integrate research and technology development 
to address critical concerns related to the reliability of the 
emerging electricity market.
    Electric energy systems and storage.--The Committee 
strongly supports the goals of the electric energy systems and 
storage program. Due to budget pressures, the Committee 
recommends a $1,000,000 reduction from the $32,000,000 
requested for high temperature superconducting research and 
development.
    Remote power.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$3,000,000 for the remote power initiative to continue the 
demonstration of fuel cell technology and other clean power 
alternatives in remote, cold weather climates, and directs the 
Department utilize criteria for cost effectiveness of energy 
savings over a 25-year life cycle.
    Carbon sequestration.--A variety of programs within the 
Department of Energy investigate the potential of carbon 
sequestration to reduce the release of carbon and other 
pollutants into the atmosphere. There is some concern, 
especially regarding deep ocean sequestration, that such a 
program would substitute one environmental problem for another. 
As the Department continues its work in this regard, special 
attention should be given to the concerns of coastal and island 
communities that are economically dependent upon the oceans.
    Accelerated technology demonstration.--The Committee 
recommendation for solar and renewable energy includes 
$3,000,000 for the accelerated demonstration of federally 
sponsored research for renewable energy production and 
environmental remediation project at the Michigan Biotechnology 
Institute.
    Program direction.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$15,651,000, the same amount as provided in the current year, 
for solar and renewable energy program direction.

                        nuclear energy programs

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $243,060,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     325,750,000
Committee recommendation................................     280,662,000

    Nuclear fission currently provides 20 percent of domestic 
electricity production and emits no atmospheric pollutants. The 
United States has not yet determined how it will dispose of 
spent nuclear fuel, and the Committee does not underestimate 
the technical and social challenges entailed in the disposal of 
spent nuclear fuel. However, unlike the emissions of coal, gas, 
and fuel oil plants, the byproducts of fission can be 
contained. Until even more advanced, base-load energy 
technologies are developed, nuclear fission provides the best 
credible means of reducing the concentration of atmospheric 
pollutants in the foreseeable future. For that reason, the 
Committee strongly supports the nuclear technology research and 
development program, the nuclear energy research initiative, 
and the nuclear energy plant optimization program.
    Fast flux test facility.--The Committee is aware of the 
potential uses of the fast flux test facility [FFTF]. Without 
prejudice, the Committee has provided funding to keep the FFTF 
in hot standby until a decision is made on tritium production 
from within the ``Nondefense environmental restoration'' 
account from which the FFTF was funded until the decision was 
made to delay its decommissioning.
    Isotopes.--The Committee recommends that the Department 
establish an advisory committee to review the need for, 
capability to, and proposals regarding the production of 
isotopes for medical, research, and other purposes. The 
Committee is aware of a number of broad analyses of these 
issues by organizations such as the Institute of Medicine and 
specific proposals involving Department as well as university-
owned reactors. Given the breadth of interest in the production 
of isotopes, the Committee recommends that the advisory 
committee include representatives of industry, universities, 
and other Federal agencies.

                    environment, safety, and health

Appropriations, 1998....................................     $66,050,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................      76,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      56,000,000

    The Committee recommends the full amount of the request for 
environment, safety, and health program direction. However, the 
Committee recommends that of the amount requested, an 
additional $20,000,000 be borne within the defense function.

                       energy support activities

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $105,100,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     126,881,000
Committee recommendation................................     115,600,000

    Technical information management.--The Committee 
recommendation for the technical information management program 
is $1,600,000, the same amount as provided in the current year. 
The Committee recommends $6,500,000 for program management 
within this account.
    Field offices and management.--The Committee recommendation 
for field offices and management is $95,000,000, the same as 
the current year.

                        environmental management

                              (nondefense)

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $497,059,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     462,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     456,700,000

    Fast flux test facility.--The Committee recommendation 
provides $32,100,000 within the ``Nondefense environmental 
management'' account to provide for the continued hot standby 
of the fast flux test facility [FFTF]. The Department will 
decide whether to restart or decommission and decontaminate the 
FFTF in the coming year.
    No matter what direction the Department determines for the 
facility, the Committee fully expects the Department to request 
additional funds from Congress to support that decision to 
minimize job layoffs.
    Science and technology.--All funds provided for 
environmental management technology development are provided 
within defense environmental management.
    Uranium Mill Tailings Remediation Act.--The Department is 
nearing the completion of its uranium mill tailings work 
managed by the Grand Junction Project Office. It has been 
brought to the attention of the Committee that the Department's 
current plans do not call for the remediation of the project 
office site itself. Within 120 days of enactment of this act, 
the Department should report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of the requirements, both legal and 
environmental, to remediate the project office site.
    Brookhaven National Laboratory.--The Committee considers 
the remediation of soil and water contamination at the 
Brookhaven National Laboratory to be of the highest priority. 
Consequently, $30,000,000, an increase of $5,700,000 over the 
amount of the request, is provided to accelerate that work.
    Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program [FUSRAP].--
The Committee is concerned that the Department of Energy has 
not reached agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on 
the transfer of cleanup responsibilities under FUSRAP and, 
therefore, has included clarifying language in the bill. The 
Committee directs the Department to fulfill its 
responsibilities at FUSRAP sites exclusive of the remedial 
actions which is to be performed by the Corps of Engineers. The 
Department will use funds appropriated under this account and 
the departmental administration accounts in fulfilling such 
responsibilities.
    Prior-year balances.--The Committee recommends the use of 
$10,000,000 of prior-year balances derived from funds 
previously provided for nondefense environmental restoration 
and nuclear materials and facilities stabilization.

      uranium enrichment decontamination and decommissioning fund

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $220,200,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     277,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     200,000,000

    The uranium enrichment decontamination and decommissioning 
fund was established in accordance with title XI of Public Law 
102-486, the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. The funds 
provided for the environmental cleanup of the Department's 
uranium enrichment plants, two of which are currently leased to 
the USEC, and the cleanup of uranium mill tailings and thorium 
piles resulting from production and sales to the Federal 
Government for the Manhattan project and other national 
security purposes.
    Due to budget constraints, the Committee recommendation 
includes a reduction of $77,000,000 from the budget request of 
$277,000,000.
    The Committee is aware that the Secretary of Energy has 
failed to implement section 511 of the energy and water 
appropriations conference report for fiscal year 1998 regarding 
restoration of the arming and arrest authority at the Paducah 
and Portsmouth gaseous diffusion plants. In accordance with 
testimony by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Committee 
agrees that the Secretary of Energy is responsible for 
implementation of these guidelines affecting arming and arrest 
authority under section 161k of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 
(42 U.S.C. 2201k). The Committee also expects that the 
Secretary will define adequate security guards carrying 
sidearms as all security guards employed at both Paducah and 
Portsmouth plants. The Committee concurs with the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission and directs the Secretary to implement 
section 511 immediately.

                           nuclear waste fund

    Low Dose Effects Program.--The Committee has provided 
$20,000,000 for the Low Dose Effects Program. The Department is 
to develop a program with the goal to determine the biological 
effects of exposure to low doses of ionizing radiation by 2008. 
Within 120 days of enactment of this act, the Department is to 
submit to the Appropriations Committees of the House and Senate 
a plan and proposed budget for the next 5 years of this effort.
    The Committee recommendation includes $1,000,000 to begin 
planning for the marine mammal research and education center to 
be located at the Natural Energy Laboratory on the Island of 
Hawaii. The Committee is aware of the State of Hawaii's intent 
to contribute $1,900,000 for this project.

                         basic energy sciences

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $668,240,000

Committee recommendation................................     836,100,000

    Spallation neutron source.--Despite significant budget 
pressures, the Committee recommends the full amount of the 
request for construction of the spallation neutron source. The 
Department of Energy's construction and operation of scientific 
user facilities sets it apart from any other Federal agency. 
The Committee encourages the Department's continued success in 
this regard, and will make every effort to provide the optimum 
annual funding to complete construction on schedule.
    The Committee recommendation includes $10,000,000 to 
continue the Department's Experimental Program to Stimulate 
Competitive Research [EPSCoR] Program.

                     other energy research programs

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $173,667,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     182,900,000
Committee recommendation................................     172,260,000

    Computational and technology research.--Due to budget 
pressure, the Committee recommends $150,000,000 for 
computational and technology research, a reduction of 
$10,640,000 from the request.

                         fusion energy sciences

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $232,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     228,160,000
Committee recommendation................................     232,000,000

    The Committee has previously complemented the review and 
coordination provided to the magnetic fusion program by the 
Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Board and its predecessor; the 
Fusion Energy Advisory Board. The Committee is aware of efforts 
within the domestic and international fusion community to 
redirect the program in light of the demise of the proposed 
$11,000,000,000 international thermonuclear experimental 
reactor [ITER]; an inevitable decision given current and 
anticipated budgets. Three options are under consideration: a 
single machine strategy based on a more affordable ITER 
concept; a multiple machine strategy that would pursue 
parallel, phased, or sequential steps; and the possibility of 
deferring any decision about the next magnetic fusion 
facilities.
    The Committee recommends that the Department, prior to 
committing to any future magnetic fusion program or facilities, 
conduct a broader review to determine which fusion technology 
or technologies the United States should pursue to achieve 
ignition and/or a fusion energy device.
    The Department currently funds four fusion related 
technologies; pulsed-power, lasers, ion drivers, and magnetic 
fusion. The Department has been reluctant or unable to review 
those technologies as a group because they have different near-
term objectives and are managed by different program offices. 
Regardless of these near-term and management differences, the 
Committee is aware that scientists within each program have an 
eye toward ignition and energy applications.
    The Committee is well aware of the challenges entailed by a 
review of multiple programs with multiple and possibly 
competing technologies. However, the Department should conduct 
an encompassing review of all four technologies prior to making 
decisions about next steps toward fusion energy, specifically 
to consider nonmagnetic alternatives. At the very least, the 
review should develop a roadmap that justifies the continued 
development of each technology.
    The Committee is aware of a number of proposals for the 
decontamination and decommissioning of the Tokamak fusion test 
reactor [TFTR], the most expeditious of which could save the 
Department 3 years and $25,000,000. In the Committee's view, 
this represents a clear opportunity for the Department to prove 
its ability to decontaminate and decommission a facility in a 
timely and efficient manner. The Department should report to 
the Committee within 180 days on the schedule and budget for 
the decommissioning and decontamination of the TFTR.

                    University and science education

    The Committee recognizes the Department's unique ability to 
contribute to the preparation of the Nation's next generation 
of scientists and engineers. The Committee regrets that budget 
constraints preclude providing the $15,000,000 requested for 
university and science education. The Committee endorses the 
Department's ongoing education initiatives funded through 
program accounts. While a line-item appropriation is not 
provided, the Committee encourages the Department to seek 
opportunities to continue to support work such as that 
performed by the Science and Technology Alliance.

than the request, for the Office of the Inspector General.

                         recommendation summary

    Details of the Committee's recommendations are included in 
the table at the end of this title.

                    Atomic Energy Defense Activities

    The atomic energy defense activities programs of the 
Department of Energy are divided into separate appropriation 
accounts as follows: weapons activities; defense environmental 
restoration and waste management; defense facilities closure 
projects; defense environmental management privitization; other 
defense programs; and defense nuclear waste disposal. 
Descriptions of each of these accounts are provided below.

                           Weapons Activities

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $4,146,692,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   4,500,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   4,445,700,000

    Weapons activities support the Nation's national security 
mission of nuclear deterrence by preserving nuclear weapons 
technology and competence in the laboratories and maintaining 
the reliability and safety of the weapons in the enduring 
nuclear stockpile. The United States continues to retain 
strategic nuclear forces sufficient to deter future hostile 
countries from seeking a nuclear advantage. In the past, 
confidence in the nuclear weapons stockpile was assured through 
a combination of underground nuclear and laboratory testing. 
Since October 1992 the United States has maintained a 
moratorium on underground nuclear testing and has explored 
other means to assure confidence in the safety, reliability, 
and performance of nuclear weapons.
    The mission of defense programs is to maintain the safety, 
security, and reliability of the Nation's enduring nuclear 
weapons stockpile within the constraints of a comprehensive 
test ban, utilizing a science-based approach to stockpile 
stewardship and management in a smaller, more efficient weapons 
complex infrastructure. The future weapons complex will rely on 
scientific understanding and expert judgment, rather than on 
underground nuclear testing and the development of new weapons, 
to predict, identify, and correct problems affecting the safety 
and reliability of the stockpile. Enhanced experimental 
capabilities and new tools in computation, surveillance, and 
advanced manufacturing will become necessary to certify weapon 
safety, performance, and reliability without underground 
nuclear testing. Weapons will be maintained, modified, or 
retired and dismantled as needed to meet arms control 
objectives or remediate potential safety and reliability 
issues. As new tools are developed and validated, they will be 
incorporated into a smaller, more flexible and agile weapons 
complex infrastructure for the future.
    The Stockpile Stewardship and Management Program is a 
single, highly integrated technical program for maintaining the 
safety and reliability of the U.S. nuclear stockpile in an era 
without underground nuclear testing and without new nuclear 
weapons development and production. Traditionally, the 
activities of the three weapons laboratories and the Nevada 
test site have been regarded separately from those of the 
weapons production plants. However, although there remain 
separate budget items within defense programs, all stockpile 
stewardship and management activities have achieved a new, 
closer linkage to each other.
    There are three primary goals of the Stockpile Stewardship 
and Management Program: (1) provide high confidence in the 
safety, security, and reliability of the U.S. stockpile to 
ensure the continuing effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear 
deterrent while simultaneously supporting U.S. arms control and 
nonproliferation policy; (2) provide a small, affordable, and 
effective production complex to provide component and weapon 
replacements when needed, including limited lifetime components 
and tritium; and (3) provide the ability to reconstitute U.S. 
nuclear testing and weapon production capacities, consistent 
with Presidential directives and the ``Nuclear Posture 
Review,'' should national security so demand in the future.
    The policy framework which guides the Department of 
Energy's stockpile stewardship and management activities is the 
``Nuclear Posture Review'' which is approved by the President. 
The requirements for DOE stated in terms of infrastructure to 
support U.S. nuclear forces are: (1) maintain nuclear weapons 
capability (without underground nuclear testing); (2) 
demonstrate the capability to design, fabricate, and certify 
weapon types in the enduring stockpile; (3) maintain the 
capability to design, fabricate, and certify new warheads; and 
(4) ensure tritium availability. In addition, the President has 
also requested a new annual certification process to certify 
that the stockpile is safe and reliable in the absence of 
underground nuclear testing, and to produce a statement about 
the future confidence in the safety and reliability of the 
stockpile.
    The Committee has serious concerns that projected budget 
profiles for Defense missions of the Nation are insufficient to 
sustain the important stockpile stewardship and management 
initiatives of DOE. The Committee believes that the issue of 
sufficient resources for the Department of Energy to ensure the 
certification of the weapons stockpile safety and reliability 
is of such importance it requires the ongoing attention of the 
Department of Defense and the Department of Energy. With 
programs constrained by budget ceilings, aggressive management 
at all levels is mandatory. The Committee is aware of instances 
at DOE laboratories where projects have not been well defined 
and there has been a lack of management attention. This 
situation has resulted in scope creep, extended project 
completion schedules, and cost growth far in excess of what is 
acceptable. If the capability of the national laboratories to 
provide the certification, required by the President, is to be 
maintained under a severely restricted budget environment, it 
is mandatory that DOE and the national laboratories take 
whatever steps are necessary to assure the proper focus. It is 
essential that critical, centerpiece missions not be impacted 
because of poor management attention.
    The Committee's recommendation for weapons activities is 
$4,445,700,000, an decrease of $54,300,000 below the budget 
request for fiscal year 1999. Details of the recommended 
funding levels follow.

                         stockpile stewardship

    An appropriation of $2,163,375,000 is recommended for the 
stockpile stewardship activities of the Department of Energy.
    The stockpile stewardship program addresses issues of 
maintaining confidence in weapons stockpile safety and 
reliability without underground nuclear testing through a 
technically challenging science-based stockpile stewardship 
program utilizing upgraded or new experimental and 
computational capabilities.
    The Committee continues to view laboratory directed 
research and development [LDRD] as an integral, essential 
component of the Department's ability to respond to changing 
needs and requirements, and maintaining the preeminence of the 
national laboratories in the areas of science and engineering. 
The Committee directs DOE to continue current guidelines for 
managing laboratory directed research and development.
    Core stockpile stewardship.--The Core Stockpile Stewardship 
Program provides the physical, technical, and intellectual 
infrastructure necessary to support a reliable, safe, and 
secure nuclear weapons stockpile. The Committee has recommended 
a total of $1,596,375,000 for core stockpile stewardship 
programs. This is $25,000,000 less than the budget request.
    The Committee is concerned that the funding level proposed 
for fiscal year 1999 and future budget planning projections of 
the Department of Energy are not sufficient to address the 
critical needs of an aging stockpile. The Committee believes 
that preservation of core intellectual, scientific, and 
technical competencies and the continued ability of the weapons 
complex to respond to changing world situations is critically 
important. Further, the Committee is not convinced that 
engineering and surveillance approaches of yesterday will be 
adequate to maintain the safety and reliability of the nuclear 
weapons stockpile in the absence of underground testing.
    A decrease of $25,000,000 is recommended for the 
accelerated strategic computing initiative [ASCI]. The ASCI 
program will provide the computing software, computer platforms 
and an operating environment to allow the national laboratories 
to make critical decisions about the safety and reliability of 
the nuclear weapon stockpile without underground nuclear 
testing. The Committee is concerned with the rate of growth of 
the ASCI program when considered in the context of constrained 
DOE defense programs budgets. The Department has embarked on a 
high-risk, aggressive program to significantly upgrade the 
computing capabilities of the weapons labs. This computing 
capability is the glue or common element which ties the entire 
stockpile stewardship and management effort together, thereby 
enable certification of the safety and reliability of the 
nuclear weapons stockpile. However, the ASCI program cannot 
grow at a rate that adversely impacts other essential programs 
and activities, including basic core capabilities. The 
Committee urges the Department to adjust the rate of growth of 
this program to reflect budget realities and the utilization 
history.
    In carrying out its Nevada test site stockpile stewardship 
archiving mission, the Department is encouraged to evaluate and 
utilize, if appropriate, the capabilities of the Nevada Test 
Site Historical Foundation.
    Testing capabilities and readiness.--An appropriation of 
$183,900,000 is recommended for testing capabilities and 
readiness activities. This is the same as the budget request. 
Current Presidential direction is to maintain a readiness 
capability to conduct an underground nuclear test at the Nevada 
test site. Therefore, infrastructure and other measures are to 
be maintained to support this requirement. Presidential 
direction also indicates that resources should be included that 
are necessary to conduct experimental activities planned by the 
nuclear weapons design laboratories and appropriate to the 
national nuclear testing policy.
    While supporting the full amount requested in the budget 
for testing capability and readiness, the Committee is 
concerned that this level of funding may not be sufficient to 
continue some activities undertaken in fiscal year 1998 at an 
effective rate. The Department is urged to limit the impact to 
ongoing activities to the extent practicable.
    The Committee recommendation includes $10,000,000 from 
within stockpile stewardship for the continued development and 
procurement of a dual-stage gas gun to be located at the Nevada 
test site.
    Construction projects.--An appropriation of $115,543,000 is 
recommended for construction projects under core stockpile 
stewardship activities for fiscal year 1999. The Committee 
recommendation is the same as the budget request.
    Inertial confinement fusion [ICF].--An appropriation of 
$213,800,000 is recommended for the Inertial Confinement Fusion 
Program. The ICF Program continues to be a major contributor to 
the science and technology base supporting the nuclear 
deterrent through improved understanding of the underlying 
physics of nuclear weapons and computational modeling that will 
provide the future basis for ensuring safety, reliability, and 
performance on nuclear components.
    The Committee continues to be impressed with the 
significant scientific advancements being made in pulsed power 
technology at Sandia National Laboratory's Z accelerator. Major 
increases in energy and temperature production enhance 
prospects that pulsed power may contribute in a significant way 
to both weapons and energy applications technology at Sandia 
National Laboratory's Z accelerator. Funds are included to 
support continued work in pulsed power experiments at the Z 
accelerator and to fund initial design studies for a larger 
facility. The Committee understands that this work should help 
DOE and its laboratories reach a conclusion on the technical 
and fiscal feasibility of building a larger scale pulsed power 
facility.
    Stockpile stewardship university alliance.--Within the 
funding available for stockpile stewardship, the Committee 
directs that up to $5,000,000 be used to support stockpile 
stewardship research requirements in accordance with the 
memorandum of agreement executed by the Department and the 
university and community college system of Nevada.
    Project 96-D-111, national ignition facility [NIF].--The 
NIF is a key facility in maintaining nuclear weapons science 
expertise required for the stockpile stewardship program, and 
in supporting weapons effects testing. An appropriation of 
$284,200,000, the full amount needed in fiscal year 1999 to 
keep this important project on schedule, is recommended for the 
NIF project. Fiscal year 1999 is the peak year for construction 
funding, with physical construction being over 60 percent 
complete. The project remains on schedule and within the 
projected construction cost of $1,046,000,000. The Committee is 
pleased with the management and oversight attention provided by 
LLNL on the project.
    Technology transfer and education.--The technology transfer 
and education program directly supports core competencies 
through the development of technologies and intellectual 
capabilities to meet current and future defense mission needs.
    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $69,000,000 
for these activities for fiscal year 1999 to support ongoing 
cooperative research and development agreements, including 
AMTEX; and education activities.

                          stockpile management

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $1,980,803,000 
for stockpile management activities. This is $45,000,000 over 
the budget request.
    The stockpile management mission is to provide for 
maintenance, evaluation, dismantlement, transportation, and 
disposal of nuclear weapons in accordance with quality, 
quantity, and schedule requirements approved by the President 
in the nuclear weapons stockpile plan. The program addresses 
issues of near-term and long-range support for the enduring 
stockpile, and for ensuring an adequate supply of tritium. 
Along with routine stockpile surveillance, this includes 
corrective maintenance and system replacement, as well as 
weapon dismantlement. The goal is to support the national 
security of the United States by maintaining a safe and 
reliable nuclear deterrent.
    Of the funds recommended for stockpile management, the 
Committee has provided an increase of $25,000,000 for the 
weapons production plants, including, $5,000,000 to support 
infrastructure and maintenance needs at the Savannah River 
site, $10,000,000 to support advanced manufacturing and other 
capital investment needs at the Kansas City plant, and 
$10,000,000 for the Pantex Plant to support scheduled workload 
requirements, and other technology and infrastructure 
requirements.
    Tritium source.--An appropriation of $177,000,000 is 
recommended for activities related to providing a new tritium 
source. This is $20,000,000 over the amount included in the 
Department's budget request for fiscal year 1999. Tritium is a 
key element used in nuclear weapons which must be replaced 
periodically in order for the weapon to operate as designed. 
Currently, there is no capability to produce tritium and, 
therefore, it is essential that activities related to providing 
a new source of tritium proceed as quickly as possible and as 
requirements dictate. The Committee continues to support the 
dual-track program being developed by the Department.
    The Committee is concerned that the proposed budget for a 
new tritium source is insufficient to support the Department's 
dual track tritium strategy for the accelerator as a back-up 
option if the light-water reactor option is selected as the 
preferred option. Therefore, the Committee has recommended an 
additional $20,000,000 for the APT option for continued design 
activities which will be necessary whether APT is selected as 
the primary option or back-up source.
    Construction projects.--An appropriation of $96,022,000 is 
recommended for line item construction projects under core 
stockpile management for fiscal year 1999. The Committee 
recommendation is $19,300,000 below the budget request.
    Budget constraints preclude the Committee's ability to 
recommend the initiation of certain construction projects and 
reduce funding for others. As such, no funding is included for 
project 99-D-123, replace mechanical utility systems project at 
the Y-12 plant at Oak Ridge, and project 99-D-125, replace 
boilers and controls, Kansas City plant.
    In addition, the Committee recommendation includes a 
$5,400,000 reduction for project 97-D-172, nuclear materials 
safeguards and security upgrades at Los Alamos; and an 
$11,000,000 reduction for project 95-D-102, chemistry and 
metallurgy research facility upgrades project at Los Alamos. 
Both projects have experienced significant schedule delays, 
changed requirements and cost increases, and the Committee is 
concerned that the lab has not given serious attention to 
design requirements, project management and cost control 
issues. The reductions will allow the DOE and the lab to 
resolve and firmly establish cost and schedule baselines so the 
projects can proceed without further significant delays. In the 
case of the nuclear materials safeguards facility, the 
Department is to move expeditiously to reevaluate the mission 
needs in light of the design deficiencies and to inform the 
appropriate congressional committees promptly once it's 
decision is final.

                           program direction

    An appropriation of $255,500,000 is recommended for program 
direction activities. This is a reduction of $5,000,000 below 
the budget request. The reduction reflects the belief that 
further savings can be achieved through efficiencies from 
realignment efforts proposed in the Institute for Defense 
Analysis report on the Department's management structure of 
weapon activities. The Committee supports the action taken by 
the Senate authorizing committee in making atomic energy 
weapons activities funding available for payment by the 
Secretary of Energy to the educational foundation chartered to 
enhance educational activities in the vicinity of Los Alamos 
National Laboratory, NM.
    The Committee recommendation includes $8,000,000 for the 
Los Alamos schools and $3,000,000 for the Los Alamos 
Educational Foundation.
    Use of prior year balances.--A $50,000,000 reduction in 
prior year carryover balances is recommended by the Committee. 
The Committee notes that there are differences between the 
Department and GAO regarding the level of available balances, 
but believes that a reduction is warranted and can be made 
without adverse impacts on critical weapon activity 
requirements.

                        recommendation summaries

    Details of the Committee's recommendations are included in 
the table at the end of this title.

         Defense Environmental Restoration and Waste Management

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $4,379,438,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   4,259,903,000
Committee recommendation................................   4,293,403,000

    The Department's environmental management program is 
responsible for identifying and reducing health and safety 
risks, and managing waste at sites where the Department carried 
out nuclear energy or weapons research and production 
activities which resulted in radioactive, hazardous, and mixed 
waste contamination. The environmental management program goals 
are to eliminate and manage the urgent risk in the system; 
emphasize health and safety for workers and the public; 
establish a system that increases managerial and financial 
control; and establish a stronger partnership between DOE and 
its stakeholders. The ``Defense environmental restoration and 
waste management'' appropriation is organized into two program 
accounts, site/project completion and post-2006 completion to 
reflect the emphasis on project completion and site closures.
    The fiscal year 1999 budget request marks the first fiscal 
year that the environmental management program structure is 
aligned with DOE's 2006 plan. All activities have been 
organized into projects, which have more defined scopes, 
schedules, and costs that support a defined end state at each 
specific site. In addition, the environmental management budget 
is organized into program decision units that focus on the end-
date of the project. Those decision units are site closure, 
site/project completion, post-2006 completion; science and 
technology; and program direction.
    The Committee believes that the environmental management 
program of the Department of Energy is beginning to turn the 
corner in the cleanup effort. Leadership within the Department 
has put in place initiatives which have produced greater 
efficiencies, reduced cost growth on many projects, and 
resulted in moving the program from the study phase to the 
cleanup of facilities. The Committee believes that the program 
recommended for fiscal year 1999 is within the acceptable range 
and will meet all legal requirements and other agreements.
    Budget constraints will continue to check future large 
increases and additional efficiencies will be required. 
However, even with these constraints, tremendous progress 
continues to be made both in tangible, on-the-ground results 
and in the business practices within the program. The Committee 
expects the Department to continue to seek every opportunity to 
bring about more efficiencies and tough businesslike approaches 
to program execution. The Department should continue the 
critical review of the need and requirement for each individual 
support service contract, and duplicative and overlapping 
organizational arrangements and functions.
    While it is imperative that the Department's cleanup costs 
be brought down, there are instances where relative small 
amounts of additional funding invested in the near-term offer 
the potential for significant reductions in long-term budgetary 
requirements. The Committee continues to be concerned with 
growing landlord costs required to maintain buildings and 
facilities that are ready for demolition, and the high costs 
associated with temporarily storing and monitoring wastes that 
are ready for permanent disposal. In order to reduce these 
costs in the future, it is important that the Department 
expedite demolition work, waste shipments, and permanent 
storage whenever possible.

                      Site and Project Completion

    An appropriation of $1,047,253,000 is recommended for site/
project completion activities. This is the same as the budget 
request.
    This account will provide funding for projects that will be 
completed by fiscal year 2006 at sites or facilities where a 
DOE mission (for example, environmental management, nuclear 
weapons stockpile stewardship, or scientific research) will 
continue beyond 2006. These activities are focused on 
completing projects by 2006 and distinguishes these projects 
from the long-term projects or activities at the sites, such as 
high level waste vitrification or the Department's other 
enduring missions. The largest amount of funding requested is 
for activities at the Hanford, WA, Savannah River, SC, and 
Idaho sites. A significant amount of work is expected to be 
completed at these sites by 2006, although environmental 
management and other stewardship activities will continue 
beyond 2006.

                          Post-2006 Completion

    The Committee recommendation for post-2006 completion 
activities is $2,726,451,000, which includes $2,247,107,000 in 
operating expenses.
    The post-2006 completion request supports projects that are 
projected to continue well beyond 2006. As cleanup is 
completed, it will be necessary for environmental management to 
maintain a presence at most sites to monitor, maintain, and 
provide information on the continued residual contamination. 
These activities are required to ensure the reduction in risk 
to human health is maintained.
    Of the amounts recommended, the Committee has included an 
increase of $5,000,000 for the National Spent Fuel Program to 
address regulatory and repository issues associated with 
Department of Energy owned spent nuclear fuel, and an 
additional $10,000,000 for research and treatment of high level 
waste consistent with the authorized level in the Senate. An 
additional $20,000,000 is recommended to support increased 
operations at the defense waste processing facility's and 
unforeseen requirements related to the in-tank precipitation 
process, and to support infrastructure needs, all consistent 
with authorizing Committee action. The Committee recommendation 
continues support of the HBCU's at the current year level and 
provides the full budget request for F- and H-canyon materials 
processing.
    The Committee is aware that the State of New Mexico is to 
complete WIPP roads ahead of schedule in anticipation of waste 
shipment to the facility. The Committee recommendation, 
therefore, includes $8,000,000 for reimbursement of expenses 
incurred by the State.
    The Committee has included an $10,000,000 for DOE-funded 
studies or other activities associated with the health effects 
of radiation and other hazardous substances on DOE workers and 
communities. The Committee directs that these studies be 
managed by the Office of Environmental, Safety, and Health. 
Additionally, the Committee urges support for the ongoing 
efforts of the Hanford Health Information Network.
    The Committee recommendation includes $5,500,000 from funds 
otherwise available for the Hanford site for the Volpentest 
hazardous materials management and emergency response training 
facility.

   DEFENSE ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION AND WASTE MANAGEMENT--POST 2006 
                     COMPLETION SAVANNAH RIVER SITE

    The Committee recognizes that universities in South 
Carolina and Georgia have provided valuable technological 
support which has assured environmental, worker and public 
safety at the DOE's Savannah River site [SRS]. The Department 
has named the South Carolina Universities Research and 
Education Foundation [SCUREF], in conjunction with the SRS, as 
the pilot center for waste management and environmental 
restoration. Likewise, the Education Research and Development 
Association [ERDA], a consortium of Georgia universities, has 
worked with SRS in support of health and safety initiatives. 
The Committee recognizes the contributions of SCUREF and ERDA 
and recommends that the Secretary and the SRS continue 
utilizing these institutions for technological support.

                         Science and Technology

    An appropriation of $222,500,000 is recommended for science 
and technology activities related to the environmental waste 
cleanup program.
    The Science and Technology Program provides new or improved 
technologies and research results that reduce risks to workers, 
the public and the environment; reduce cleanup costs; and/or 
provide solutions to environmental problems that currently have 
no solutions. New and improved technologies have the potential 
to reduce environmental restoration and cleanup costs by an 
estimated $12,000,000,000 to $27,000,000,000.
    The Congress has expressed its concerns with the rate at 
which new technology is used in actual cleanup projects. The 
Committee commends the Department's efforts to focus the 
program on completing cleanup and significantly reducing costs. 
However, the Committee is concerned that the existing culture 
and instructional system penalizes the application of 
innovative methods and technologies due to the higher risk. The 
Committee believes that the Department should weigh carefully 
the use of new technologies and approaches where potential cost 
reduction benefits are significant.
    The Committee recommendation transfers to defense 
environmental restoration and waste management those activities 
proposed for funding under the Non-Defense Environmental 
Management Program. Funding for these activities--Technology 
Validation and Verification Center and Western Environmental 
Technology Office, had been included in the ``Defense science 
and technology'' account for fiscal year 1997 and fiscal year 
1998.
    The Committee finds that the independent review provided 
through the consortium for risk evaluation and stakeholder 
participation to be important in providing balance and 
credibility to work performed for the Department and has 
provided funding to support the program at $5,000,000.
    The Committee recognizes the work carried out by the 
Diagnostic Instrumentation and Analysis Laboratory [DIAL] at 
Mississippi State University for the Department of Energy's 
Environmental Management Program. This work has led to the 
development of instrumentation and technology of value to the 
Department's cleanup effort. This includes instrumentation to 
verify the content of plutonium in waste forms, and to ensure 
that waste drums can be handled safely. DIAL has also 
demonstrated technologies to characterize and optimize high 
temperature processes, which has also impacted the commercial 
sector. The Committee recommendation includes $5,000,000 for 
the DIAL.

                           Program Direction

    The Committee recommendation for program direction totals 
$346,199,000, which is the same as the budget request. This 
funding level is essentially the same as the current fiscal 
year and nearly $65,000,000 less than fiscal year 1997.
    Program direction provides the overall direction and 
administrative support for the environmental management 
programs of the Department of Energy. After undergoing 
significant and disruptive downsizing over the last 2 years, 
the Committee believes that stability is now essential if DOE 
is to provide effective oversight and management of the cleanup 
program.
    Asset management.--The Department is encouraged to sell, 
for commercial purposes, its excess amounts of heavy water 
located at its Savannah River facility. Due to continuing 
budget constraints, and to the costs associated with the 
necessary removal of certain substances from the heavy water to 
increase its commercial value, the Department is directed to 
make use of such methods of sale as would allow it, directly or 
indirectly, to use the proceeds of the sale, that will be 
received in the out-years, to offset future costs associated 
with the contract operation of the Savannah River site.
    Funding adjustments.--The Committee has recommended funding 
adjustments totaling $49,000,000 for the Defense Environmental 
Restoration and Waste Management Program, including an 
undistributed reduction of $20,000,000 to be offset by the 
availability of uncosted, unobligated prior year funds; and a 
general reduction of $29,000,000.

                              Site Closure

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $890,800,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   1,006,240,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,048,240,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $1,048,240,000 
for the site closure program. This is an increase of 
$42,000,000 over the budget request.
    The ``Site closure'' account includes funding for sites 
where the environmental management program has established a 
goal of completing the cleanup mission by the end of fiscal 
year 2006. After the cleanup mission is complete at a site, no 
further DOE mission is envisioned, except for limited long-term 
surveillance and maintenance. This account provides funding to 
cleanup the Rocky Flats, Fernald, Mound, Ashtabula, and 
Battelle Columbus sites.
    The Committee continues to believe that a closure fund, 
which targets funding at specific facilities whose accelerated 
closure in the near-term results in significantly reduced out-
year costs, is important in freeing up budgetary resources in 
the longer term. The Committee has included and additional 
$32,000,000 to mitigate the funding shortfall proposed in the 
budget for the Rocky Flats site. The Committee understands that 
early closure of the Rocky Flats site could result in over 
$1,000,000,000 in saving.
    The Committee recommendation also includes $10,000,000 for 
cleanup activities related to TA-21 at Los Alamos National 
Laboratory. The Committee believes that this work is more 
appropriately included under site closure projects than under 
the post-2006 account.

             Defense Environmental Management Privatization

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $200,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     516,857,000
Committee recommendation................................     241,857,000

    An appropriation of $241,857,000 is recommended for the 
environmental management privatization initiative. The 
Committee action is taken without prejudice.
    The Department of Energy continues to rely upon the private 
sector to accomplish it's mission of environmental cleanup. 
Privatization is just one tool used by DOE to implement 
alternative business strategies for the procurement of goods 
and services required to fulfill their cleanup 
responsibilities. The term ``privatization'' as used by DOE 
refers to a method of financing, contracting and risk-sharing 
between the Department and firms in the private sector for good 
or services, and involves the use of fixed price contracts 
under which contractors use private funding to design, 
construct, operate, and deactivate equipment and facilities 
required in the cleanup mission. The vendor then receives 
payment for producing products that meet DOE performance 
specifications. Budget authority is set aside to cover future 
contractual obligations, as well as to provide an incentive for 
private sector investment.
    The Committee recommends a reduction of $275,000,000 in the 
amount of additional budget authority to be held in reserve for 
privatization projects. Consistent with the Senate authorizing 
committee, the Committee recommends the following allocation of 
funding: $113,500,000 for the tank waste remediation system 
[TWRS] project, phase I; $20,000,000 for the spent nuclear fuel 
dry storage project; $87,300,000 for the advanced mixed waste 
treatment project; $19,600,000 for remote handled transuranic 
waste transportation (Carlsbad); and $33,500,000 for 
environmental/waste management disposal at Oak Ridge.
    While recommending reductions in the TWRS project, the 
Committee recommendation continues to support the cleanup 
effort, and believes that adequately treating and disposing of 
the high-level waste at Hanford in an essential priority. The 
Committee feels that the funding proposed should be sufficient 
for TWRS to proceed in fiscal year 1999.
    The Committee directs that available fiscal year 1997 funds 
of $25,000,000 from canceled projects--the broad spectrum, 97-
PV-3, Oak Ridge project, $15,000,000; and the wastewater and 
sanitary treatment, 97-PVT-4, Rocky Flats project, $10,000,000, 
within defense environmental management privatization be made 
available to finance the fiscal year 1999 program. In addition, 
the Committee makes $7,000,000 of prior year balances available 
to cover the costs of the program in 1999.

                        recommendation summaries

    Details of the Committee's recommendations are included in 
the table at the end of this title.

                        Other Defense Activities

Appropriations, 1998....................................  $1,666,008,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................   1,667,160,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,661,160,000

    An appropriation of $1,661,160,000 is recommended by the 
Committee for other defense activities.
    This account includes the following programs: verification 
and control technology, nuclear safeguards and security, 
security investigations, security evaluations, the Office of 
Nuclear Safety, Worker, and Community Transition Assistance, 
fissile materials control and disposition, emergency 
management, international nuclear safety and security 
activities, and naval reactors. Descriptions of each account 
are provided below.

                 Nonproliferation and National Security

    Verification and control technology/arms control.--The 
Verification and Control Technology Program includes activities 
related to nonproliferation and verification research and 
development, arms control, and intelligence. The Department is 
engaged in an active nuclear nonproliferation program through 
research and development activities performed at the national 
laboratories, by providing technical and analytical support to 
treaty development and implementation, and by providing 
intelligence support to these efforts. The Committee 
recommendation totals $510,500,000. This is the same as the 
budget request. The Committee continues to strongly support 
these important national security programs.
    The Committee recommendation for verification and control 
technology research and development, and arms control totals 
$466,900,000. The funding level recommended by the Committee 
provides significant increases over the current year level for 
DOE to continue important activities related to the 
proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, including 
chemical and biological weapons; and increased initiatives to 
reduce the danger of nuclear smuggling and the associated 
potential of nuclear terrorism.
    The recommendation provides $152,263,000, the same as the 
budget request, for material protection, control, and 
accounting [MPC&A;] activities. The Committee continues to 
consider these activities important to reducing the threat 
created by the breakup of the former Soviet Union.
    The Committee recommendation includes $500,000 for the 
continued development of Raman spectroscopy technology for the 
detection of chemical and biological agents.
    In light of recent underground nuclear tests by India and 
Pakistan, the Committee directs the Department to reevaluate 
the adequacy of its treaty verification responsibilities and 
activities, and to provide the Committee a report on any 
recommended changes or other needs prior to the Committee's 
hearings on the fiscal year 2000 budget request.
    The Committee recommendation includes $4,000,000 for the 
development and demonstration of dielectric wall accelerator 
technology for remote detonation, radiography, and fusion 
applications.
    Intelligence.--The Committee recommendation totals 
$43,600,000.
    The Office of Intelligence provides information and 
technical analysis on international arms proliferation, foreign 
nuclear programs, and other energy-related matters to 
policymakers in the Department and other U.S. Government 
agencies. The focus of the Department's intelligence analysis 
and reporting is on emerging proliferant nations, nuclear 
technology transfers, foreign nuclear materials production, and 
proliferation implications of the breakup of the former Soviet 
Union.
    The Committee has provided an additional $10,000,000 for 
the Department to continue its focus and expand 
counterintelligence programs at the national laboratories and 
other high-risk facilities related to openness issues.
    The Department of Energy is encouraged to review the need 
for, and to allocate sufficient funding from the 
Nonproliferation and National Security Program, for assistance 
to the Russian nuclear weapons dismantlement program to develop 
an effective emergency response capability. The Committee 
recognizes that as dismantlement increases under START II, the 
possibility of accident increases proportionately and an 
inadequate response by the Russian Government to the accident 
may place the disarmament treaty at risk. The Committee further 
recognizes the Nevada test site as the unique environment for 
such training without risking compromise of classified weapons 
design information.
    Emergency management.--The Committee has provided 
$23,700,000 for emergency management activities. The Office of 
Emergency Management serves as the single point of contact and 
control for all DOE emergency and threat assessment-related 
activities, and ensures an integrated response to emergencies 
affecting departmental operations and activities or requiring 
departmental assistance.
    Nuclear safeguards and security.--The Nuclear Safeguards 
and Security Program includes activities to assure adequate 
protection of nuclear weapons, nuclear materials, facilities, 
and classified information against theft, sabotage, espionage, 
and terrorist activities. As departmental sites and facilities 
are decommissioned, safeguards and security costs are expected 
to decrease Departmentwide. The Committee concurs with the 
budget request of $53,200,000.
    The Committee recommendation supports the requirement to 
replace security locks that meet Federal specifications for 
containers that hold classified material. The Department should 
initiate a retrofit program that ensures that all containers 
holding sensitive, classified material are protected with 
security locks meeting Federal specifications.
    Security investigations.--The Security Investigations 
Program includes those activities necessary for granting 
appropriate security clearances to agency and Government 
contractor personnel who must in the performance of their work 
have access to restricted data, national security information, 
or special nuclear material, or who occupy a designated 
critical sensitive position. An appropriation of $30,000,000 is 
recommended by the Committee. This is the same as the budget 
request. The Committee understands that the cost of security 
clearances is to be offset by program organizations in the 
amount of $20,000,000.
    Funding adjustment.--The Committee has recommended a 
reduction of $10,000,000 to nonproliferation and national 
security to reflect the level of prior year balances in the 
program.

               Environment, safety, and health (Defense)

    The Office of Environment, Safety, and Health is the 
departmental resource that provides oversight in the areas of 
environment, safety, health, and safeguards and security 
performance. The Committee recommends an appropriation of 
$89,000,000, a $15,000,000 increase over the budget request.
    The Committee recommendation continues funding to support 
commitments under State health agreements, and studies 
conducted under a memorandum with the Department of Health and 
Human Services under defense activities as in past years. The 
recommendation also supports the program to monitor former DOE 
workers with significant occupational exposures at an increased 
level.
    The Department's budget request proposed moving $20,000,000 
of program direction, salaries and benefits to the nondefense 
portion of the bill. The Committee recommendation continues to 
fund these activities, as it has in past years, under other 
defense activities.
    Health studies.--The Committee is concerned with the large 
number, scope and wide variety of epidemiologic and other 
health-related studies undertaken by DOE and other agencies 
addressing the potential effects of DOE operations. These 
studies cover a broad range of issues--from workplace violence 
and smoking to radiation exposure on workers and communities. 
Studies on worker and community health are funded in 
environment, safety, and health [EH] through a memorandum of 
understanding [MOU] between DOE and the Department of Health 
and Human Services [HHS]. These studies are independently peer 
reviewed and administered by the Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention. Additional studies are funded separately by the 
Office of Environmental Management [EM] and administered by the 
Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry [ATSDR] under 
its statutory authority under CERCLA. Finally, still other 
studies and medical monitoring programs are funded directly by 
both EH and EM.
    The Committee is concerned that the current arrangement for 
oversight provides insufficient focus within the Department and 
has resulted in duplication, overlap and increased costs in the 
studies undertaken. Further, there appears to a lack of a 
coherent, prioritized approach to selecting and conducting 
these studies. The Committee is aware, however, that DOE, with 
the cooperation of other agencies, has begun a process to 
consolidate and put in place a coherent plan to include a 
public health agenda for each DOE site. This should result in 
clearly defined study goals, objectives and priorities for 
ongoing and future studies. The Committee expects that all 
major, new programs will be specifically identified in its 
budget request.
    Further, the Committee directs that all DOE funded studies 
or other activities associated with the effects of radiation or 
other hazardous substances on DOE workers or communities be 
managed through the Office of Environment, Safety and Health, 
and that all funding for all HHS managed health activities, 
either through CDC or ATSDR, be incorporated into a single MOU 
with HHS. Prior to public release, all DOE-funded health 
studies shall be peer reviewed. Sufficient funding has been 
provided to complete the Hanford thyroid study in December 1998 
as scheduled. The Committee has also included $10,000,000 under 
defense environmental restoration and waste management for DOE-
funded studies or other activities associated with the health 
effects of radiation and other hazardous substances on DOE 
workers and communities.

               Worker And Community Transition Assistance

    In accordance with section 3161 of the National Defense 
Authorization Act of 1993 and as a result of a change in the 
work force at defense nuclear facilities, defense employees of 
the Department may be provided various options to minimize 
impacts of these work force structure changes. These options 
include retraining, early retirement incentives, preference in 
hiring, outplacement assistance, and relocation assistance. In 
addition, this program funds contractor employment reduction 
requirements for severance and separation payments.
    The Committee recommendation is $40,000,000 for this 
program. The recommendation supports the Department's 
commitment to the State of Idaho at the amount contained in the 
budget request.

               Fissile Materials Control and Disposition

    The Fissile Materials Control and Disposition Program is 
responsible for the technical and management activities to 
assess, plan, and direct efforts to provide for the safe, 
secure, environmentally sound long-term storage of all weapons-
usable fissile materials and the disposition of fissile 
materials declared surplus to national defense needs. The 
Committee recommendation is $168,960,000 the same as the budget 
request.
    Excess weapons grade plutonium in Russia is a clear and 
present danger to the security of the United States because of 
the possibility that it will fall into the hands of non-Russian 
entities and provide Russia with the ability to rebuild its 
nuclear arsenal at a rate the United States may be unable to 
equal.
    For that reason, the Committee considers the Department's 
material disposition program of equal importance to weapons 
activities; both are integral components of our national effort 
to reduce any threat posed to the United States and to deter 
the threat that remains.
    The Committee also strongly endorses the Department's 
decision to burn excess weapons plutonium in mixed-oxide fuel; 
the only disposition alternative that makes later recovery of 
remaining weapons grade material sufficiently difficult that 
the Committee considers the threat posed by that material to be 
acceptably low.
    The current United States disposition program originated in 
a domestic effort to reduce United States inventories of excess 
weapons grade plutonium without adequate consideration given to 
the threat posed by stockpiles of similar Russian material. 
While some efforts have been made to link the United States 
program to progress on plutonium disposition in Russia, those 
linkages are not sufficient. Current linkages are consultative 
in nature, lack explicitness, and are significantly imbalanced. 
While both countries have declared 50 tons of plutonium to be 
excess, both have substantially more than 50 tons in excess and 
Russia has multiples of the amount excess in the United States. 
Despite that, the current plans are for the United States to 
dispose of plutonium at an initial rate of 3 tons per year 
while Russia proceeds with an uncertain program for which 
financing is not yet available to dispose of only 1.3 tons per 
year. At a minimum, the two countries disposition programs 
should be conducted under a bilateral accord that sets specific 
schedules for materials disposition in both countries and 
Russian material must be converted to nonweapons forms at no 
less than the rate of United States material--anything else 
would amount to an unequal and irresponsible disarmament.
    In fact, the current U.S. policy is akin to a unilateral 
reduction in U.S. nuclear weapons capabilities with the hope 
that our traditional nuclear adversary will follow suit; a 
premise the Committee cannot accept.
    The Committee has two interests in this matter; to show 
support for the Department's decision to endorse the eventual 
use of mixed-oxide fuel for the disposition of excess weapons 
plutonium, and also ensure that the United States does not 
unwisely proceed with a program that does not ensure that an 
equal amount of plutonium will be converted to nonweapons forms 
by the Russian Federation.
    For that reason, the Committee has provided the full amount 
of the request, but has also included a statutory proviso that 
funds for the design, licensing, or construction of a mixed-
oxide fuel fabrication facility in the United States, shall be 
available only after the United States and the Russian 
Federation agree on a bilateral schedule for the conversion to 
nonweapons forms of excess weapons plutonium in accordance with 
which the conversion rate in the United States does not exceed 
the conversion rate in the Russian Federation.
    The Committee wants to see as much excess weapons plutonium 
in Russia and the United States disposed of as fast as 
possible, and regrets that the Committee's action will result 
in some initial delay. However, the current program is 
imbalanced and could pose a long-term threat to the national 
security of the United States unless the issues identified by 
the Committee are addressed.
    The Committee recommends that in negotiating the 
recommended bilateral agreement, the administration give 
serious consideration to utilizing mixed-oxide fuel fabrication 
facilities outside the United States and Russia and also to 
identify as many reactors as possible that might burn such 
fuel.
    The Committee recognizes that Russian plans to dispose of 
excess weapons plutonium are in part limited by the Russian 
Federation's limited requirement for mixed-oxide fuel. The 
Committee recommendation includes $5,000,000 to support the 
joint United States-Russian program to develop an advanced 
reactor to consume large quantities of excess weapons 
plutonium.

                        Nuclear Energy (Defense)

    An appropriation of $35,000,000 is recommended by the 
Committee for international nuclear safety and nuclear security 
programs of DOE. This is the same as the budget request.
    The collapse of the former Soviet Union left many Russian 
nuclear reactors without the technical and financial support 
necessary to operate safely. Since 1992 the Department of 
Energy has undertaken efforts to develop a nuclear safety 
infrastructure and establish a safety culture at powerplants in 
the former Soviet Union and other central and Eastern European 
countries. The program has four major elements that are 
critical to achieving lasting improvements in nuclear safety 
culture and infrastructure development. They are improvement of 
the capabilities of the plant operators; improvement of the 
physical condition of the plants; provide professionals in 
design, operation and regulation needed to conduct safety 
analyses; and assistance in the development of domestic 
liability legislation necessary to establish a strong, 
independent regulatory authority.
    The Committee is aware that RedZone Robotics has worked 
successfully with an international consortium to remove nuclear 
waste from Chornobyl and has the ability to remove nuclear 
waste from storage tanks in Russia and the New Independent 
States. The Committee encourages the Department to review 
RedZone's proposal in this regard to determine whether it meets 
the objectives of the international nuclear safety program.

                             Naval Reactors

    The Naval Reactors Program provides for the design, 
development, testing, and evaluation of improved naval nuclear 
propulsion plants and reactor cores having long fuel life, high 
reliability, improved performances, and simplified operating 
and maintenance requirements. The nuclear propulsion plants and 
cores cover a wide range of configurations and power ratings 
suitable for installation in naval combatants varying in size 
from small submarines to large surface ships. The Committee 
recommendation is $665,500,000.
    While the Committee is unable to provide additional funding 
to optimize the program to shutdown prototype reactors and 
conduct remediation work, the Committee supports this effort 
and urges the Department to review the need for additional 
funding and to take appropriate action to request additional 
resources as may be needed in future budgets.

                        RECOMMENDATION SUMMARIES

    Details of the Committee's recommendations are included in 
the table at the end of this title.

                     Defense Nuclear Waste Disposal

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $190,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     190,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     185,000,000

    The Committee recommends $185,000,000 for defense nuclear 
waste disposal.
    Since passage of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, as 
amended, the nuclear waste fund has incurred costs for 
activities related to disposal of high-level waste generated 
from the atomic energy defense activities of the Department of 
Energy. At the end of fiscal year 1997, the balance owed by the 
Federal Government to the nuclear waste fund was $1,039,000,000 
(including principal and interest). The ``Defense nuclear waste 
disposal'' appropriation was established to ensure payment of 
the Federal Government's contribution to the nuclear waste 
repository program. Through fiscal year 1998, a total of 
$987,800,000 has been appropriated to support nuclear waste 
repository activities attributable to atomic energy defense 
activities.
    The Committee recommendation includes $15,000,000 to assess 
the application of advanced accelerator technology to the 
transmutation of high-level defense waste. The Committee is 
funding significant research in high power linear accelerator 
design for defense and nondefense purposes. The Committee is 
also aware of recent advances in accelerator target design 
employing pyrochemistry and liquid lead-bismuth eutectic 
technology for both the target and cooling that, coupled with a 
high power accelerator, may provide an opportunity to 
significantly reduce the radioactivity and radiotoxicity of 
certain isotopes. The Committee directs that this work be 
coordinated with work being done in other program offices on 
the development of high power accelerator technology.

                    Power Marketing Administrations

    Public Law 95-91 transferred to the Department of Energy 
the power marketing functions under section 5 of the Flood 
Control Act of 1944 and all other functions of the Department 
of the Interior with respect to the Alaska Power 
Administration, Bonneville Power Administration, Southeastern 
Power Administration, Southwestern Power Administration, and 
the power marketing functions of the Bureau of Reclamation, now 
included in the Western Area Power Administration.
    All power marketing administrations except Bonneville are 
funded annually with appropriations, and related receipts are 
deposited in the Treasury. Bonneville operations are self-
financed under authority of Public Law 93-454, the Federal 
Columbia River Transmission System Act of 1974, which 
authorizes Bonneville to use its revenues to finance operating 
costs, maintenance and capital construction, and sell bonds to 
the Treasury if necessary to finance any remaining capital 
program requirements.

         operation and maintenance, alaska power administration

Appropriations, 1998....................................     $13,500,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................................
Committee recommendation................................       5,000,000

    The Alaska Power Administration [APA] is responsible for 
operation, maintenance, and marketing of power for the 78-
megawatt Snettisham project near Juneau.
    Public Law 104-58 authorizes the sale of the APA assets. 
The Snettisham project will be sold to the State of Alaska. The 
Department and the APA expect to complete sale of the project 
by August 1998.
    The Committee is aware that oil is leaking from one of the 
APA's submerged cables used to transmit power from the 
Snettisham hydroelectric facility to Juneau. Unfortunately, 
because the APA staff has been reduced from 31 to 8 over the 
previous year in anticipation of the APA's sale, the staff no 
longer has the engineering or procurement expertise to conduct 
the major technical procurement necessary to replace the cable.
    In order to address this problem, the Committee has 
provided $5,000,000, in addition to the $2,500,000 provided in 
the current year, to assist in the cost to replace the cable. 
It is the Committee's hope that, prior to final disposition of 
this act, an agreement could be reached between the APA and the 
State of Alaska by which the APA would make a contribution to 
the State to cover the cost of replacing a single cable or, at 
the discretion of the State, the funds could be used to 
partially fund the replacement of all four cables.

                  bonneville power administration fund

    The Bonneville Power Administration is the Federal electric 
power marketing agency in the Pacific Northwest, a 300,000-
square-mile service area that encompasses Oregon, Washington, 
Idaho, western Montana, and small portions of adjacent Western 
States in the Columbia River drainage basin. Bonneville markets 
hydroelectric power from 29 Corps of Engineers and Bureau of 
Reclamation projects, as well as thermal energy from non-
Federal generating facilities in the region. Bonneville also 
markets and exchanges surplus electric power interregionally 
over the Pacific Northwest-Pacific Southwest Intertie with 
California, and in Canada over interconnections with utilities 
in British Columbia.
    Bonneville constructs, operates, and maintains the Nation's 
largest high-voltage transmission system, consisting of 14,800 
circuit-miles of transmission line and 400 substations with an 
installed capacity of 21,500 megawatts.
    Public Law 93-454, the Federal Columbia River Transmission 
System Act of 1974, placed Bonneville on a self-financed basis. 
With the passage in 1980 of Public Law 96-501, the Pacific 
Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act, 
Bonneville's responsibilities were expanded to include meeting 
the net firm load growth of the region, investing in cost-
effective, regionwide energy conservation, and acquiring 
generating resources to meet these requirements.
    Borrowing authority.--A total of $3,750,000,000 has been 
made available to Bonneville as permanent borrowing authority. 
Each year the Committee reviews the budgeted amounts Bonneville 
plans to use of this total and reports a recommendation on 
these borrowing requirements. For fiscal year 1998, the 
Committee recommends an additional increment of $258,000,000 in 
new borrowing authority, the same as the budget request, for 
transmission system construction, system replacement, energy 
resources, fish and wildlife, and capitol equipment programs.
    Repayment.--During fiscal year 1998, Bonneville will pay 
the Treasury $614,000,000, of which $164,000,000 is to repay 
principal on the Federal investment in these facilities.
    Limitation on direct loans.--The Committee recommends that 
no new direct loans be made in fiscal year 1998.
    Budget revisions and notification.--The Committee expects 
Bonneville to adhere to the borrowing authority estimates 
recommended by the Congress and promptly inform the Committee 
of any exceptional circumstances which would necessitate the 
need for Bonneville to obligate borrowing authority in excess 
of such amounts.
    The Committee recognizes that last year the Members of the 
northwest congressional delegation wrote to the administration, 
urging that a new agreement on funding for mitigation of the 
fish and wildlife financial impacts of the Federal Columbia 
River Power System [FCRPS] be executed by April 30, 1998. The 
Committee commends the administration for its effort to develop 
a new agreement for these costs, but at this time one has not 
been completed. Therefore, unless the Bonneville Power 
Administration and other applicable Federal agencies have 
executed a definitive agreement setting specific dollar cost 
limitations with regard to funding for mitigation of the fish 
and wildlife impacts of the Federal Columbia River Power System 
for fiscal years 2002-06 by September 1, 1998, it is the 
Committee's sense that current levels of funding for mitigation 
of these fish and wildlife impacts should extend until October 
1, 2006.
    Last March Bonneville and the Northwest Power Planning 
Council completed the cost review of the Federal Columbia River 
Power System [FCRPS] and submitted the final recommendations to 
the Committee. The review covered planned costs of the FCRPS, 
including transmission, with a focus on projected costs for 
Bonneville's next rate period, fiscal years 2002-06. The 
recommendations identified approximately $146,000,000 in 
reductions to planned power expenses during this period. 
Although the Committee understands that some of the 
recommendations require legislation, it believes that 
Bonneville should begin preparing now to implement the 
recommendations no later than October 1, 2001.
    The Committee is particularly interested in the 
recommendations pertaining to the need for an integrated 
capital asset management strategy involving Bonneville, the 
Corps of Engineers, and the Bureau of Reclamation. The Cost 
Review Management Committee estimated that such a strategy 
would produce about $48,000,000 per year in savings during the 
5-year period.
    The Committee directs Bonneville to work with the Corps and 
the Bureau in developing an integrated capital asset management 
strategy directed at maximizing value, including both financial 
returns and public benefits. The strategy should encompass the 
operation and maintenance of the FCRPS, including transmission, 
physical assets, a coordinated investment plan, and the 
creation of integrated performance measures. Bonneville shall 
submit a draft integrated capital asset management strategy to 
the Committee no later than March 1, 1999.
    Administrative provisions.--In order to facilitate 
administrative cost savings of the Bonneville Power 
Administration and promote sales of Federal power both in the 
forthcoming subscription process and in the future, the 
Committee has included bill language clarifying the authority 
of the Administrator to sell Federal power to an entity formed 
by existing regional public body and cooperative customers of 
Bonneville. This entity is an organization called a joint 
operating entity which must be composed solely of public bodies 
and cooperatives of the Pacific Northwest region that are 
qualified to purchase requirements firm electric power service 
from Bonneville. Other Federal power marketing agencies 
currently make aggregated power sales to such entities for 
public bodies and cooperatives. BPA does the same for 
transmission contracts, nonfirm, and surplus power sales, but 
not requirements firm power sales.
    The language does not expand any such customer's rights to 
purchase requirements firm power from Bonneville and does not 
allow resale by the joint operating entity of such power to 
customers that are not its members or participants. No joint 
operating entity, or combination of them, could purchase from 
Bonneville more requirements firm power from the sum of the 
purchases that its public body and cooperative members or 
participants could make if acting individually. Public body and 
cooperative customers participating in such joint operating 
entities do not waive existing rights.
    The sole purpose of this provision is administrative in 
nature to assure that the Bonneville Power Administration takes 
advantage of its authority to sell requirements firm power to 
regional public body and cooperative customers who form and 
choose to aggregate their purchases of requirements Bonneville 
power through such joint operating entities.

      operation and maintenance, southeastern power administration

Appropriations, 1998....................................     $12,222,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................       8,500,000
Committee recommendation................................       8,500,000

    The Southeastern Power Administration markets hydroelectric 
power produced at Corps of Engineers projects in 10 
Southeastern States. There are 23 projects now in operation 
with an installed capacity of 3,092 megawatts. Southeastern 
does not own or operate any transmission facilities and carries 
out its marketing program by utilizing the existing 
transmission systems of the power utilities in the area. This 
is accomplished through wheeling arrangements between 
Southeastern and each of the area utilities with transmission 
lines connected to the projects. The utility agrees to deliver 
specified amounts of Federal power to customers of the 
Government, and Southeastern agrees to compensate the utility 
for the wheeling service performed.

      operation and maintenance, southwestern power administration

Appropriations, 1998....................................     $25,210,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................      26,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      26,000,000

    The Southwestern Power Administration is the marketing 
agent for the power generated at Corps of Engineers' 
hydroelectric plants in the six-State area of Kansas, Oklahoma, 
Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana with a total installed 
capacity of 2,158 megawatts. It operates and maintains some 
1,380 miles of transmission lines, 24 generating projects, and 
24 substations, and sells its power at wholesale primarily to 
publicly and cooperatively owned electric distribution 
utilities.

 construction, rehabilitation, operation and maintenance western area 
                          power administration

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $189,043,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     215,435,000
Committee recommendation................................     215,435,000

    The Western Area Power Administration is responsible for 
marketing electric power generated by the Bureau of 
Reclamation, the Corps of Engineers, and the International 
Boundary and Water Commission which operate hydropower 
generating plants in 15 Central and Western States encompassing 
a 1.3-million-square-mile geographic area. Western is also 
responsible for the operation and maintenance of 16,727 miles 
of high-voltage transmission lines with 257 substations. 
Western distributes power generated by 55 plants with a maximum 
operating capacity of 10,576 megawatts.
    Western, through its power marketing program, must secure 
revenues sufficient to meet the annual costs of operation and 
maintenance of the generating and transmission facilities, 
purchased power, wheeling, and other expenses, in order to 
repay all of the power investment with interest, and to repay 
that portion of the Government's irrigation and other nonpower 
investments which are beyond the water users' repayment 
capability. Under the Colorado River Basin power marketing 
fund, which encompasses the Colorado River Basin, Fort Peck, 
and Colorado River storage facilities, all operation and 
maintenance and power marketing expenses are financed from 
revenues.
    The amount to be deposited in the ``Utah reclamation 
mitigation and conservation'' account is $5,036,000, the same 
amount as the request.

           falcon and amistad operating and maintenance fund

    Creation of the Falcon and Amistad operating and 
maintenance fund was directed by the Foreign Relations 
Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1994-95. This legislation also 
directed that the fund be administered by the Administrator of 
the Western Area Power Administration for use by the 
Commissioner of the United States Section of the International 
Boundary and Water Commission to defray operation, maintenance, 
and emergency costs for the hydroelectric facilities at the 
Falcon and Amistad Dams in Texas.
    The Committee recommendation is $1,010,000, the same as the 
budget request.

                        recommendation summaries

    Details of the Committee's recommendations are included in 
the table at the end of this title.

                  Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

                         salaries and expenses

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $162,141,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     168,898,000
Committee recommendation................................     168,898,000

                salaries and expenses--revenues applied

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $162,141,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................     196,958,000
Committee recommendation................................     168,898,000

    The Committee recommendation provides $168,898,000 for the 
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Revenues are established 
at a rate equal to the amount provided for program activities, 
resulting in a net appropriation of zero.

                GENERAL PROVISIONS--DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

    The Committee recommendation includes two Department of 
Energy general provisions not included in the current year 
Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act.
    Waste isolation pilot plant waste acceptance criteria.--The 
Committee recommends a prohibition on decreasing the 
concentration of radioactive contamination in waste so that 
such waste complies with the waste acceptance criteria for the 
waste isolation pilot plant.
    Office of Science Research.--In the fiscal year 1998 Energy 
and Water Development Act, the Congress substantially 
reorganized the ``Energy supply research and development'' 
account of the Department of Energy to create two separate 
accounts; Energy research, and science. The Department of 
Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7139) mandates the 
establishment of an Office of Energy Research within the 
Department of Energy headed by a Director of Energy Research. 
In accordance with the Committee's reorganization of the 
``Energy supply research and development'' account, the 
Department's science programs have been consolidated within the 
Office of Energy Research, and energy research programs are 
managed by other program offices; largely the Assistant 
Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the 
Director of the Office of Nuclear Energy. Consistent with the 
reorganization imposed by the Congress, the Committee 
recommends an amendment to the Department of Energy 
Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7139) to rename the Office of 
Energy Research the Office of Science Research headed by a 
Director of Science Research.

                     TITLE IV--INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

                    Appalachian Regional Commission

Appropriations, 1998....................................    $170,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................      67,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      67,000,000

    The Appalachian Regional Commission [ARC] is a regional 
economic development agency established in 1965. It is composed 
of the Governors of the 13 Appalachian States and a Federal 
cochairman who is appointed by the President.
    The Committee recommendation for the Appalachian Regional 
Commission totals $67,000,000, which is the same as the current 
fiscal year.
    Consistent with the administration's budget request, the 
Committee recommendation does not include funding for ARC 
highways. Funding for ARC development highways will be provided 
through the highway trust fund beginning in fiscal year 1999 
through 2004 consistent with provision contained in the 
Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act.

                           Denali Commission

Appropriations, 1998....................................................
Budget estimate, 1999...................................................
Committee recommendation................................     $20,000,000

    In title VI, the Committee recommends an appropriation of 
$20,000,000 for the Denali Commission. Historically, the United 
States has promoted economic development in regions with 
requirements that now only exist in Alaska. The recommendation

    An appropriation of $17,500,000 is recommended for fiscal 
year 1999. This is the same as the budget request.
    The Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board was created by 
the Fiscal Year 1989 National Defense Authorization Act. The 
Board, composed of five members appointed by the President, 
provides advice and recommendations to the Secretary of Energy 
regarding public health and safety issues at the Department's 
defense nuclear facilities. The Board is responsible for 
reviewing and evaluating the content and implementation of the 
standards relating to the design, construction, operation, and 
decommissioning of defense nuclear facilities of the Department 
of Energy.

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has been subject to six 
major reviews since 1979; the Kemeny report in 1979, the 
Rogovin report in 1980, regulatory impact surveys in 1981 and 
1989, the National Academy of Sciences in 1992, and the 
regulatory review task force in 1994. The reviews contain 
common criticisms, among them; the NRC's approach to regulation 
is punitive rather than performance based, licensees are forced 
to expend considerable resources on regulations that are not 
related to safety, the NRC is unnecessarily prescriptive, 
licensees fear retribution for criticism, there are no specific 
criteria for important NRC actions such as placing a reactor on 
the watch list, and the NRC focus on paper compliance is not 
related to and can distract from safety activities. The 
Committee is concerned that the NRC has done little to respond 
to these reviews and believes that a major review should be 
undertaken to improve the efficiency of the NRC and the manner 
in which it oversees public health and safety.
    In recent years, the safety performance of U.S. nuclear 
powerplants has significantly improved. Since 1991, the number 
of significant events has decreased in excess of 70 percent, 
safety systems unavailability has decreased in excess of 60 
percent, scrams while critical have decreased 50 percent, and 
collective radiation exposure has decreased 35 percent. Despite 
these improvements, in the last 3 years, the NRC has 
dramatically increased its imposition of civil fines (25 in 
1995, 50 in 1996, and 71 in 1997) and level four (the least 
severe) violations (567 in 1995, 905 in 1996, and 1427 in 
1997).
    The Committee believes that the increased issuance of fines 
and violations is not a reflection on the safety of the nuclear 
utility industry; it is the result of a change in regulatory 
culture at the NRC that defies the achieved improvement in 
safety that is quantified by the reduced number of significant 
events, safety system unavailability, scrams while critical, 
and collective radiation exposure doses among other metrics.
    The result is an amplification of the criticisms identified 
in previous reviews. The NRC has launched a review of nuclear 
plant design baselines which requires exhaustive review of 
design calculations, electrical separation, 50.59 safety 
evaluations, accident analysis documentation, historical plant 
operating records, and steps taken to implement NRC generic 
letters. Tremendous costs have been imposed upon reactor 
operators, and significant deficiencies have been found at only 
a few reactors. More important, the NRC's new interpretation of 
what constitutes design base information is creating 
uncertainty as to what the NRC expects of reactor operators.
    The NRC frequently imposes regulatory requirements using 
informal approaches that circumvent legal requirements for 
imposing regulatory requirements, including the Administrative 
Procedures Act. Those informal practices include: 
implementation of the systematic assessment of licensee 
performance process, determining which plants should be added 
to the watch list, generic communications that reactor 
operators feel obligated to follow, the use of diagnostic 
evaluation teams, and the practice of NRC staff providing 
guidance to reactor operators on what should be included in an 
operator's confirmatory action letters.
    The Committee believes these informal practices have gained 
in influence in recent years as a result of two phenomena; the 
continuing inconsistency of regional offices, and the 
increasing willingness of the NRC to regulate the management as 
well as safety of plants; even going so far as to require NRC 
approval of certain personnel changes at plants.
    NRC regulations are suppose to be developed through formal 
rulemaking processes conducted in accordance with the 
Administrative Procedures Act and should be consistent with the 
backfit rule. The backfit rule requires that new 
interpretations of existing regulations or the imposition of 
new regulations first be subject to review under 10 CFR 50.109 
to determine if the new interpretation or new regulation is 
necessary to preserve adequate protection or to bring a plant 
into compliance with regulations. If the NRC cannot demonstrate 
that a backfit is necessary to meet either of those 
requirements, under NRC regulations, backfits should not be 
imposed unless a cost-benefit backfit analysis demonstrates 
that such an action will result in substantial increase in 
safety to the public and be cost beneficial. Concerns have been 
raised to the Committee that informal practices outlined above 
fail to meet these backfit requirements.
    The Committee is aware of concerns that the NRC may have 
inappropriately expanded the scope of its reviews. 
Specifically, it has been suggested that the NRC's regulation 
of the below-ground aspects of uranium recovery operations that 
utilize in situ (that is, solution mining) extraction 
techniques unnecessarily duplicate adequate regulation by other 
Federal and State authorities. It has also been suggested that 
the NRC is inappropriately interpreting the Atomic Energy Act 
and Uranium Mill Tailings Remediation Act to limit the use of 
existing mill tailings impoundments for the deposition of 
materials that are chemically, physically, and radiologically 
indistinguishable from uranium mill tailings. The Committee 
will work with the relevant congressional authorizing 
committee's to ensure that appropriations are not provided to 
the NRC to incorrectly implement those acts.
    The Committee is aware that the NRC imposes an economic 
feasibility requirement on some applicants to the Commission. 
Within 180 days of enactment of this act, the NRC should 
provide to the Appropriations and relevant authorizing 
committees of the House and Senate a summary of the cases in 
which the NRC considered the economic feasibility of 
applicants' proposals, the length of time required by the NRC 
to dispose of those cases, and the final disposition of each of 
those cases.
    The Committee supports the move to risk-informed, 
performance-based regulation. Risk informed requires the 
recognition that all activities entail risk; it can be limited 
but not eliminated, and that the reasonableness notion 
incorporated in the as low as reasonably achievable concept can 
be quantified and should not be exceeded by regulatory 
requirements. The Committee supports efforts to define 
frequently used terms such as ``safety-significant'' and 
``important to safety.'' Current nuclear powerplants may have 
10,000 to 20,000 components classified as safety related or 
important to safety, but reviews indicate that up to 80 percent 
of these items have low safety significance. The Committee 
supports a graded safety value scale that enables reactor 
operators to better apply resources and procedures to 
components of greatest safety significance.
    Numerous reviews, including those cited above, recommend 
the NRC review existing regulations to reform those that are 
outdated, paperwork oriented, or that consume resources needed 
to comply with regulations but that do not add to safety or 
that obscure actual safety issues. In 1985, the NRC's 
Regulations Marginal to Safety Program offered promise in this 
regard. Unfortunately, that review, which identified in excess 
of 20 regulations as marginal to safety, resulted in changes to 
only one major regulation. The Committee supports the 
resumption of that effort.
    The Committee is concerned that an inappropriately large 
portion of the funds appropriated to the NRC are used to 
support an interminable adjudicatory process imposed by the 
atomic safety and licensing boards. Even though the majority of 
the NRC's budget is reimbursed to the Federal Treasury through 
fees imposed upon licensees, the Committee has an obligation to 
ensure that appropriated funds are spent wisely. The Committee 
supports previous efforts by the Commission to streamline its 
adjudicatory process, in particular the abolition of the 
appeals panel in 1991.
    The Committee welcomes efforts by the relevant 
congressional authorizing committees to review the exorbitant 
and unpredictable time required to consider applications (even 
simply to write decisions once they are made), the broad 
discretion provided to judges to give standing, and the effort 
required to resolve issues no matter how trivial and unrelated 
to safety; such as personnel and economic viability issues 
addressed above. Within 180 days of enactment of this act, the 
NRC should provide a report to the Appropriations and relevant 
authorizing committees of the House and Senate on the amount of 
appropriated funds in fiscal years 1990-98 expended by and in 
support of atomic licensing and safety boards.
    The Committee recommendation includes authority for the NRC 
to collect annual charges not to exceed a total of $416,000,000 
from licensees in fiscal year 1999. The Committee recommends 
$17,000,000 be made available to the NRC from the nuclear waste 
fund. An additional $33,000,000, that will not be reimbursed 
through user fees, is provided for: agreement State oversight, 
international activities, generic decommissioning and 
reclamation activities, the site decommissioning management 
program, regulatory support to agreement States, the small 
entities program, support to nonprofit educational 
institutions, and other Federal agency programs.
    The Committee directs the NRC to provide a monthly report 
on the status of its licensing and regulatory duties. The 
Committee recommends the NRC use the same format used in the 
so-called Bevill reports previously provided to the Committee.
    The Committee recommendation includes a single year 
extension of the NRC's user fee collection authority. The 
Omnibus Budget and Reconciliation Act of 1990, as amended, 
requires that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission recover 100 
percent of its budget authority, less the appropriation from 
the nuclear waste fund, by assessing licenses and annual fees. 
That authority expires in fiscal year 1998, and unless 
additional fee collection authority is enacted prior or 
concurrent to enactment of this act, the NRC's authority to 
collect user fees would be limited to 33 percent of its budget. 
The Committee is aware that the Senate Environment and Public 
Works Committee recently reported legislation (S. 2090) to 
extend this authority for 5 years and intends that the 1-year 
extension included in this measure serve as a safeguard should 
that measure not be enacted by September 1, 1998.

    This appropriation provides for the Office of Inspector 
General of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The Committee 
recommends an appropriation of $4,800,000 for fiscal year 1998.

                  Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $2,600,000 for 
the Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board. The Nuclear Waste 
Policy Amendments Act of 1987 directed the Board to evaluate 
the technical and scientific validity of the activities of the 
Department of Energy's nuclear waste disposal program. The 
Board must report its findings not less than two times a year 
to the Congress and the Secretary of Energy.

                       Tennessee Valley Authority

Appropriations, 1998....................................     $70,000,000
Budget estimate, 1999...................................      76,800,000
Committee recommendation................................      70,000,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $70,000,000 
for the Tennessee Valley Authority.
    In the budget for fiscal year 1998 for the Tennessee Valley 
Authority, the administration contemplated the elimination of 
Federal funding for the agency's appropriated programs in 
fiscal year 1999. It was felt that such action would allow TVA 
to focus more on generating low-cost, dependable electricity.
    Although the conference on the Energy and Water Development 
Act for 1998 proposed that nonpower programs would be funded 
from other sources beginning in fiscal year 1999 as the 
administration requested, several issues including equity 
remain unresolved. Therefore, the Committee has recommended an 
appropriation of $70,000,000, the same as the amount 
appropriated for the current year, be provided for fiscal year 
1999.
    No funding is provided for construction of the new 
replacement Chickamauga Lock. The Committee understands that 
studies have indicated measures may be available which could 
delay the need to provide a replacement facility. TVA is 
directed to use $6,900,000 of unobligated carryover balances to 
continue to operate and maintain Land Between the Lakes 
National Recreation Area in fiscal year 1999.
    The Committee is concerned about the failure of the 
Tennessee Valley Authority to comply with provisions contained 
in the statement of managers accompanying the Fiscal Year 1998 
Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act which directed 
TVA to relocate power lines and assist with the environmental 
impact statements associated with the construction of the lake 
in Union County, MS. The Committee expects TVA to comply with 
these provisions and to report to the Committee 45 days after 
enactment of this legislation on the status of its work.

  COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 7, RULE XVI, OF THE STANDING RULES OF THE 
                                 SENATE

    Paragraph 7 of rule XVI requires that Committee reports on 
general appropriations bills identify each Committee amendment 
to the House bill ``which proposes an item of appropriation 
which is not made to carry out the provisions of an existing 
law, a treaty stipulation, or an act or resolution previously 
passed by the Senate during that session.''
    The recommended appropriations in title III, Department of 
Energy, generally are subject to annual authorization. However, 
the Congress has not enacted an annual Department of Energy 
authorization bill for several years, with the exception of the 
programs funded within the atomic energy defense activities 
which are authorized in annual defense authorization acts. The 
authorization for the atomic energy defense activities, 
contained in the National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal 
Year 1998, is currently being considered by the Senate.
    Also, contained in title III, Department of Energy, in 
connection with the appropriation under the heading ``Nuclear 
Waste Disposal Fund,'' the recommended item of appropriation is 
brought to the attention of the Senate.
    In title IV, independent agencies, the recommended 
appropriation for the Appalachian Regional Commission is 
$67,000,000.

                      TITLE VI--DENALI COMMISSION

    In title VI, the Committee recommends an appropriation of 
$20,000,000 for the Denali Commission.
