                                Purpose

    The purpose of this bill is to provide appropriations for 
the fiscal year 1998 beginning October 1, 1997, and ending 
September 30, 1998, 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 1998 budget estimates for the bill total 
$23,047,903,000 in new budget (obligational) authority. The 
recommendation of the Committee totals $21,209,623,000. This is 
$1,838,280,000 below the budget estimates and $219,596,000 over 
the enacted appropriation for the current fiscal year.

                     subcommittee budget allocation

    The Energy and Water Development Subcommittee allocation 
under section 602(b)(1) of the Budget Act totals 
$20,842,000,000 in budget authority and $20,883,000,000 in 
outlays for fiscal year 1998. The bill as recommended by the 
Committee is within the subcommittee allocation for fiscal year 
1998 in budget authority and outlays.
    The Committee allocation for nondefense discretionary 
funding for fiscal year 1998 continues the downward trend 
experience for the past several years. For fiscal year 1998, 
the allocation has been reduced about $310,000,000 below the 
President's budget request for 1998, excluding the late budget 
amendment which reduced the Corps of Engineers funding by 
$330,000,000. With the severely limited resources and the 
heightened expectation created by a new Water Resources 
Development Act and the expanded wastewater and ground water 
reuse authorization which passed late last year, the Committee 
has been faced with an overwhelming number of requests for 
funding to initiate work on new projects and studies for the 
Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation.
    To complicate matters further, severely constrained budget 
targets within the executive branch have forced both the Corps 
and the Bureau of Reclamation to significantly lengthen project 
completion schedules envisioned last year. The effect of this 
action, while reducing the funding needs for fiscal year 1998, 
has created a situation in which sizable additional funding is 
needed on many ongoing projects to keep up with previous 
construction schedules. To cite one example, the Los Angeles 
Harbor project in California was included in the budget at 
$16,100,000, but the Corps has informed the Committee that 
$60,000,0000 is needed to continue the project at an optimum 
rate. This $44,000,000 difference is caused by the lack of 
budgetary resources for the Energy and Water Development 
Subcommittee. There are several critical lock and dam 
replacement projects on the Nation's inland waterway system 
which the Committee has not been able to recommend for 
construction because their large estimated project cost makes 
it extremely difficult to accommodate the annual funding 
requirements in future years. These are just two examples of 
many items which contribute significantly to the national 
economy, that the Committee has not been able to fully support 
in the fiscal year 1998 budget.
    The 5-year budget agreement just completed does not place a 
priority on infrastructure programs such as the water resource 
development activities of the Corps of Engineers and the Bureau 
of Reclamation. Yet, the subcommittee continues to receive 
increasing numbers of requests from Members to fund new 
projects and programs, or to increase the funding allocation on 
projects included in the budget. If the trend of lower 
allocations for the Energy and Water Subcommittee continues, 
the Committee will be required to further reduce the 
recommendation for individual projects, despite the interest of 
Members.

                 Government Performance and Results Act

    In accordance with the Government Performance and Results 
Act, the Department of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission submitted draft strategic plans to the Committee on 
June 16 and July 1 respectively.
    The Committee recommends that the Department consider using 
the 1996 performance agreement between President Clinton and 
Secretary O'Leary as the basis for future versions of its 
strategic plan. Unlike the draft plan, the performance 
agreement enunciates goals and quantifies criteria for 
evaluating the Department's performance. It is a document that, 
if incorporated into policy, planning, and budgeting decisions, 
can contribute to the Department's management as envisioned by 
sponsors of the Government Performance and Results Act, and can 
assist the Congress in evaluating the Department's performance.
    The Committee recommends that the Department establish a 
secretarial officers concurrence process for the strategic plan 
and, as was done with the performance plan, circulate copies of 
the concurrence sheet with future drafts of the strategic plan.
    The Committee commends the Commission for its efforts 
regarding a draft strategic plan. The Commission assembled a 
senior group of staffers from numerous program offices to 
contribute to the plan, and the broad perspective is evident. 
Discussions between Committee and Commission staff identified 
some shortcomings in the plan; some of the strategies are 
unnecessarily vague, and more qualitative measurements of 
success need to be included. The Committee recommends the 
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's budget request to the 
Commission. Many aspects of the FERC's regulatory 
responsibilities are comparable to those of the Commission and 
the FERC deserves credit for quantifying its workload.

                                                             236,168,000

    The Committee has also recommended appropriations totaling 
approximately $4,611,279,000 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.

                         subcommittee hearings

    The Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development of the 
Committee on Appropriations held four sessions in connection 
with the fiscal year 1998 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 1998, therefore, have been 
developed after careful consideration of available data.

                         votes in the committee

    The subcommittee, by unanimous vote on July 10, 1997, 
recommended that the bill, as amended, be reported to the full 
Committee on Appropriations.
    By unanimous vote of 28 to 0 the Committee on July 10, 
1997, recommended that the bill, as amended, be reported to the 
Senate.

    Coastal studies of navigation improvements, Alaska.--An 
appropriation of $600,000, an increase of $450,000, has been 
included for the Corps to initiate feasibility studies at 
Kotzebue, Akutan, and False Pass in Alaska. The feasibility 
studies continue the effort to evaluate the navigation needs of 
Alaska's coastal communities. By combining several harbor and 
navigation studies into this one study, the Corps is expected 
to be able to continue significant work substantially below the 
cost to address each project separately.
    Nome Harbor, AK.--The Committee has provided an additional 
$40,000 over the budget request for the Nome Harbor project in 
Alaska for the Corps to complete the feasibility study 
improvements at the harbor.
    Valdez Harbor, AK.--Funding in the amount of $100,000 has 
been included for the Corps to undertake a reconnaissance study 
of expanding the harbor at Valdez, AK.
    White River navigation to Newport, AR.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $500,000 for the Corps to complete a 
project study plan and initiate a general reevaluation study to 
confirm economic justification and the environmental 
acceptability of providing navigation improvements for a 
segment of the White River in central Arkansas in the vicinity 
of Newport, AR.
    Bolinas Lagoon, CA.--The Committee has provided an 
additional $510,000 over the budget request for the Bolinas 
Lagoon, CA, project for the Corps to expedite feasibility phase 
activities.
    Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers, comprehensive basin 
study, California.--An appropriation of $500,000 is recommended 
for the Corps of Engineers to undertake comprehensive basin 
studies for the Sacramento/San Joaquin River basins in 
California. The study would analyze the flood risk in the 
watersheds and evaluate environmental sensitive and long-term 
solutions from a system perspective. Given the size and 
complexity of the activities associated with this study, the 
Committee believes that the normal funding for reconnaissance 
studies should not apply.
    San Joaquin River Basin Stockton metro area, CA.--The 
Committee has provided $225,000 for a feasibility study for 
flood damage reduction of the Stockton metropolitan area and 
$225,000 for a feasibility study of Farmington Dam. The 
Committee understands that the Corps and the local sponsors 
have agreed that upon completion of the reconnaissance study, 
two separate feasibility studies will be conducted. The 
Committee directs that the flood damage reduction feasibility 
study focus on the flood protection project under construction 
by the local sponsor and the study be developed as a report for 
review by the Chief and Secretary as required by section 
211(e)(2) of Public Law 104-303. Upon completion of the report 
and approval by the Secretary, the recommended project is 
considered eligible for reimbursement and credit as provided in 
section 211 of Public Law 104-303.
    Florida mitigation banking study.--In order to further the 
goals established in section 307(a) of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 1990, the Committee directs the Corps to use 
$400,000 of available funds to complete, within 1 year, a study 
to determine what measures need to be taken to facilitate the 
establishment of private and public mitigation banks in Florida 
where significant wetland and aquatic resource impacts are 
expected.
    Naussau County, FL.--The Committee recommends an 
appropriation of $290,000 for the Naussau County, FL, study, an 
increase of $150,000, for the Corps to conduct a general 
reevaluation report for the project.
    Savannah River basin comprehensive water resources study, 
Georgia and South Carolina.--An amount of $300,000 is 
recommended for the Corps to initiate a comprehensive study to 
address the current and future needs for flood damage 
prevention and reduction, water supply, and other related water 
resource needs in the Savannah River basin in Georgia and South 
Carolina. The study is to be limited to an analysis of water 
resource issues that fall within the traditional civil works 
mission of the Corps.
    Kaumalapau Harbor, HI.--The Corps of Engineers may use up 
to $900,000 to complete preconstruction engineering and design 
activities at Kaumalapau Harbor, HI. Funding is contingent upon 
the State of Hawaii taking control over the harbor. The 
Committee is aware that Lanai's petroleum products supplier has 
indicated its intention to cancel all deliveries to the island 
due to the unsafe condition of the breakwater.
    The Committee recognizes that the standard procedures in 
determining a benefit/cost ratio may not fully take into 
consideration the unique requirements of an island State 
dependent on ocean traffic for the delivery of supplies. The 
Committee, therefore, expects the Army Corps of Engineers to 
continue efforts to resolve concerns about the formula for 
establishing a benefit/cost ratio. Similarly, the Committee 
urges the Corps to work with residents and businesses on Lanai, 
the barge operators, the State of Hawaii to determine how best 
to resolve the safety problems at Kaumalapau Harbor.
    Laulaulei, HI.--The Committee has included $200,000 for the 
Corps to undertake a reconnaissance level study of flooding 
problems at Laulaulie, HI, at the naval magazine and the 
surrounding area.
    Upper Mississippi and Illinois navigation study, Illinois, 
Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin.--The Committee has 
included $7,700,000, the full budget request, for the Upper 
Mississippi and Illinois navigation study. Given the importance 
of the undertaking, the Committee expects the Corps to make 
additional resources available in fiscal year 1998, if 
necessary, to maintain the completion schedule for the study. 
The Committee reaffirms the position taken on this project in 
the conference report on the Energy and Water Development Act 
for 1996.
    Kentucky lock and dam, Kentucky.--The Committee has 
provided the full budget request of $1,750,000 for the Kentucky 
lock and dam to continue preconstruction engineering and design 
activities. The Committee understands that the preconstruction 
engineering and design is scheduled to be completed in 
September 1998. If additional funding is needed during the year 
to keep work on schedule, the Committee urges the Corps to take 
appropriate actions to reprogram funds into the project.
    The Committee is supportive of the Corps efforts to include 
the Kentucky lock project in the fiscal year 1999 budget and 
future year budget schedules. Through 1998, over $10,000,000 
will have been spent on preconstruction engineering and design. 
The Corps and the administration should make every effort to 
avoid further delays in commencing the next stage for this 
project.
    Licking River watershed, Kentucky.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $500,000 for the Corps to initiate 
individual reconnaissance studies to investigate structural and 
nonstructural measures to reduce flood damages in communities 
along the Licking River in Kentucky, including Falmouth, 
Butler, Cynthiana, and other South and North Fork damage 
centers. In conducting the studies, the Corps is to evaluate 
the feasibility of constructing a flood wall around Falmouth, 
KY.
    Grand Isle and vicinity, Lousiana.--The recommendation 
includes an amount of $800,000 for the Corps of Engineers to 
complete preconstruction engineering and design for the Grand 
Isle and vicinity, LA, project.
    North Branch Potomac River environmental restoration, 
Maryland and West Virginia.--In carrying out the planning and 
development of the environmental restoration projects on the 
North Branch, Potomac River, Maryland and West Virginia, the 
Secretary is encouraged to investigate projects that 
demonstrate the feasibility of resource recycling and reuse, 
including the utilization of coal combustion byproducts (fly 
ash fluidized combustion ash, flue gas desulfurization 
byproducts) in the abatement of acid mine drainage.
    Ocean City and vicinity, Maryland, (Assateaque Island).--
The Committee is aware of concerns about the severe erosion on 
the north end of Assateaque Island National Seashore which is 
partially attributable to the Federal navigation project at 
Ocean City, MD. Last year, the Committee provided $150,000 to 
initiate preconstruction engineering and design of measures to 
mitigate associated damages to the shoreline. The Committee 
expects that once the Corps and the National Park Service 
resolve remaining issues of allocation of costs and operation 
and maintenance that the Corps should include funding in their 
next budget request.
    Grand Forks, ND, East Grand Forks, MN.--In an effort to 
address the flood control needs in the Grand Forks, ND, and 
East Grand Forks, MN, areas which were devastated by flooding 
this spring, the Committee has included $2,500,000 for the 
Corps to conduct planning for a combined flood control project 
for the area. By combining both projects under one 
postauthorization report, it is hoped that comprehensive flood 
control project will be eligible for authorization in the next 
water resources authorization bill to be considered by 
Congress.
    Kansas City, MO-KS.--The Committee is aware that the Kansas 
City, MO, and Kansas City, KS, flood control study encompasses 
two States, two rivers, seven separable units, and five 
separate sponsors; and, therefore, believes that the study area 
and issues are too large and complex to be adequately address 
by the standard reconnaissance study simplified analysis of 
limited scope as set forth in current Corps policy. 
Accordingly, the Committee directs the Corps to use the 
additional $300,000 provided to scope potential 
multifeasibility studies, develop associated project study 
plans and negotiate feasibility cost sharing agreements related 
to the study.
    Devils Lake, ND.--An appropriation of $1,100,000, the full 
budget request, has been included for the Corps to expedite 
work on the Devils Lake, ND, feasibility study for lake 
stabilization. The Committee urges the Corps to work 
cooperatively with the Bureau of Reclamation, the State of 
North Dakota, other interested parties, and Canada in this 
effort. The Committee expects the study, which is the document 
on which a project authorization will be based, will address 
all aspects of the project set out in the study evaluation.
    Lower Platte River and tributaries, Nebraska.--
Appropriations made for the Lower Platte and tributaries study 
in Nebraska should also be used to conduct studies authorized 
by section 503(d)(11) of the Water Resources Development Act of 
1996.
    Grand Neosho River basin, OK.--An appropriation of $500,000 
is recommended for the Corps of Engineers to complete the Grand 
Neosho River basin reconnaissance study in Oklahoma.
    Tahoe basin, Nevada and California.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $750,000 for the Tahoe basin study in 
Nevada and California. The study will examine flood control, 
water quality, wetland habitat, and other environmental 
restoration opportunities. The study is critical for restoring 
the health of Lake Tahoe and the Lake Tahoe basin. If 
additional funding is needed during the year to keep work on 
schedule, the Committee urges the Corps to take appropriate 
actions to reprogram additional funds into the project.
    Tillamook Bay and estuary, OR.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $100,000 for the Corps to undertake a 
reconnaissance study of the Tilamook Bay estuary and watershed 
in Oregon. The primary focus of the study is dredging to reduce 
the risk of flooding, but the study will also address ecosystem 
restoration possibilities and other water resource needs.
    Turtle Creek watershed, Pennsylvania.--The Committee has 
provided $100,000 each for the Corps to undertake 
reconnaissance studies at the following locations: Upper Turtle 
Creek, Lyons Run, and Brush Creek within the Turtle Creek 
basin. The purpose of the reconnaissance studies is to identify 
and prioritize corrective actions concerning acid mine drainage 
within the watershed near the Borough of Export, PA.
    Charleston Harbor, SC (deepening and widening).--The 
Committee continues to support the Charleston Harbor deepening 
and widening project in South Carolina and has provided the 
full budget request of $200,000 for fiscal year 1998, which 
will allow the Corps to complete all preconstruction 
engineering and design in fiscal year 1998, including 
preparation of plans and specifications for the first 
construction contract, making the project ready for a fiscal 
year 1999 new construction start. The Committee would be 
supportive of the Corps efforts to include the Charleston 
Harbor deepening and widening project in the fiscal year 1999 
budget and future year budget schedules. If additional funding 
is needed during the year to keep work on schedule, the 
Committee urges the Corps to take appropriate actions to 
reprogram funds into the project.
    Mustang Island, Corpus Christi, TX (Packery Channel).--The 
Committee understands the need to construct Packery Channel in 
Nueces County, Texas. This channel will be an important outlet 
from Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway to 
the Gulf of Mexico, providing significant economic and safety 
benefits for waterborne traffic. The Committee is concerned 
that the Corps did not request any funding to perform an 
initial study, as authorized by the Water Resources Act of 
1996. The Committee has provided $100,000 for the Corps to 
perform this study.
    Rincon Canal, TX.--The Rincon Canal system connects the 
Corpus Christi ship channel to the Rincon industrial park, 
where a number of businesses are located. The Corps is directed 
to use $100,000 provide herein to perform necessary studies to 
determine the acceptability of the project during fiscal year 
1998. If the Secretary determines that maintenance dredging is 
acceptable, he is urged to use available funds to perform 
necessary dredging this fiscal year.
    Somerset and Searsburg Dams, VT.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $100,000 for the Corps to initiate and 
complete a reconaissance study of possible operational or other 
changes, including the conveyance of Somerset and Searsburg 
Dams to the Corps, to enhance ecosystem restoration.
    Marmet lock and dam, WV.--The Committee continues to 
support the Marmet lock and dam project in West Virginia and 
has provided the full budget request of $830,000 for fiscal 
year 1998 which will allow the Corps to complete all 
preconstruction engineering and design in fiscal year 1998, 
making the project ready for a fiscal year 1999 new 
construction start. Given the size of this and other inland 
navigation projects and the severely limited resource 
availability in future years, it will be necessary to carefully 
schedule the funding needs into out-year budget profiles. The 
Committee would be supportive of the Corps efforts to include 
the Marmet project in the fiscal year 1999 budget and future 
year budget schedules. The Marmet project has already had 
nearly 10 million dollars' worth of preconstruction engineering 
and design over a 5-year period, and the Corps and the 
administration should make every effort to avoid further delays 
in commencing the next stage for this project. If additional 
funding is needed during the year to keep work on schedule, the 
Committee urges the Corps to take appropriate actions to 
reprogram funds into the project.
    Research and development.--An appropriation of $37,000,000 
is recommended for research and development activities of the 
Corps of Engineers. The Committee believes it inappropriate to 
earmark funding for university research institutions given the 
limited resources and severe budget constraints.
    The Committee has provided $2,500,000 for zebra mussel 
research. The Committee has been informed of the need to 
conduct activities in the Great Lakes region and Lake 
Champlain, VT. The Committee expects the Corps of Engineers to 
apply the funds to various regions geographically, and on 
varying technologies and applications in order to accomplish 
the highest-priority work.
    The Committee recommendation also supports the full budget 
request for the Corps to continue activities related to the 
comprehensive flood impact response modeling system [CFIRMS].
    Coordination and studies with other agencies.--An 
appropriation of $12,810,000 is recommended for coordination 
studies with other agencies for fiscal year 1998. An additional 
$1,000,000 over the budget request is provided for planning 
assistance to States to reduce the backlog of activities 
waiting funding.
    The Committee recommendation includes $400,000 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.

                Budget Constraints and Program Execution

    The Committee has been faced with difficult choices in 
development of the budget for the Corps of Engineers for fiscal 
year 1998. Lack of allocation for nondefense discretionary 
programs has severely limited the Committee's ability to 
respond to needs of the Corps of Engineers' Civil Works Program 
as contained in the numerous requests of Members. The 
constrained budget environment will also require changes in the 
way the Corps manages their programs in order to realize the 
greatest efficiency and public benefit from the funding 
available for fiscal year 1998. Therefore, the Committee 
expects the Corps to manage resources on a nationwide basis.
    The budget request and the approved Committee allowance are 
shown on the following table:

    Dillingham, AK, shoreline erosion.--The Committee has 
included $1,200,000 for the Corps of Engineers to complete the 
Dillingham, AK, shoreline erosion control project. The 
Committee understands that serious erosion has endangered 
public facilities and that the project helps eliminate the 
erosion.
    St. Paul Harbor, AK.--An appropriation of $6,638,000 is 
recommended for the Corps of Engineers to complete planning for 
the St. Paul Harbor, AK, project and initiate construction in 
fiscal year 1998. The Committee understands that a large part 
of the first year funding requirement is mobilization costs 
associated with this remote Alaska island.
    McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River navigation system (Montgomery 
Point lock and dam), Arkansas.--The bill includes $10,000,000 
for the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River navigation project, as 
proposed in the budget request, which is $3,000,000 more than 
the appropriation for the current fiscal year.
    Red River emergency bank protection, Arkansas.--An 
appropriation of $3,500,000 is included in the bill for the 
Corps of Engineers to initiate and complete construction of the 
Black Lake revetment feature of the Red River emergency bank 
protection project in Arkansas.
    Arkansas River, Tucker Creek, AR.--Using $300,000 provided 
herein, the Committee directs the Corps of Engineers to 
complete reconstruction and rehabilitation of Faulkner County 
Levee No. 1 (Tucker Creek) in accordance with section 110 of 
Public Law 101-640, and in accordance with Public Law 99-662 
cost-sharing requirements.
    Los Angeles Harbor, CA.--An appropriation of $26,100,000 is 
recommended for the Los Angeles Harbor project in California. 
This is $10,000,000 over the budget for fiscal year 1998. This 
is a good example for the impact of current and future budget 
constraints have on providing for the infrastructure needs of 
the Nation. The Committee understands that the Corps of 
Engineers could utilize $60,000,000 to maintain efficient 
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. Yet, only $16,100,000 has 
been included in the budget request for fiscal year 1998. The 
Committee is unable to provide the full amount required for 
1998, and budget profiles for the next several years project a 
continued decline in available resources to support projects 
such as the Los Angeles Harbor that contribute so much to the 
national economy.
    Marysville/Yuba City, CA.--An amount of $9,300,000 has been 
included by the Committee to accelerate 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.
    Mid-Valley area levee reconstruction, California.--The 
Committee has provided an increase of $2,500,000 over the 
budget request for the Corps to accelerate construction of 
levee reconstruction work of the Mid-Valley Area Levee 
Reconstruction project in California in order to have flood 
protection in place at the earliest possible time.
    Sacramento River flood control project, (Glenn-Colusa 
irrigation district), California.--The Committee has provided 
$600,000, the same as the budget request for the Corps of 
Engineers to continue construction on the riffle restoration 
project.
    Faulkner Island Lighthouse, CT.--The Committee is aware 
that the budget request did not include funding to continue the 
shoreline protection project for the Faulkner Island Lighthouse 
in Connecticut, but understands the available fiscal year 1997 
carryover funds could be used to continue the project in fiscal 
year 1998. The Corps is directed to use $400,000 of available 
funds to continue the project in fiscal year 1998.
    Canaveral Harbor, FL.--The recommendation includes 
$3,500,000 for the Corps to proceed with the Canaveral Harbor 
project in Florida. The Committee understands that contract 
work had to be terminated and funding reprogrammed from the 
project following the explosion of an Air Force rocket and 
subsequent contamination of the project area. Since the problem 
is now resolved, the Committee has provided the full capability 
of the Corps to award a new contract and resume work.
    Everglades and south Florida ecosystem restoration, 
Florida.--The Committee recommendation includes $10,000,000 for 
the Everglades and south Florida ecosystem restoration project 
in Florida as requested by the President. The President's 
budget transmitted to the Congress in February of this year 
contained $75,000,000 for this project. However, a subsequent 
budget amendment reduced this amount to the annual incremental 
amount which could actually be spent in fiscal year 1998 
without carrying over large unused balances into future years. 
The Committee concurs with the amended request and has provided 
the full $10,000,000 as requested.
    Fort Pierce Beach, FL.--The Committee recommends an 
appropriation of $2,300,000 for the Corps to continue work on 
the Fort Pierce Beach, FL, project. Activities include 
completion of a general reevaluation report and renourishment 
work.
    Kissimmee River restoration, Florida.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $3,000,000 for the Corps of Engineers 
to continue the Kissimmee River restoration project in Florida. 
This is the same amount as included in the budget request.
    Panama City beaches, FL.--The Committee is aware that 
Hurricane Opal devastated the beaches and area around Panama 
City, FL, in the summer of 1995. The Hurricane left the area 
without hurricane and flood protection by stripping the 
coastline of all beach sand which provides storm surge 
protection. The Committee understands that the State and local 
officials believe that restoration of hurricane protection is 
essential. Therefore, the Committee has provided $5,000,000 to 
continue this important project.
    McCook Reservoir, IL.--While the budget request for the 
McCook Reservoir, IL, project does not include a request for 
new funding, the Committee understands that programmed 
carryover funding will finance fiscal year 1998 work 
activities.
    O'Hare Reservoir [CUP], IL.--The Committee understands that 
the Corps has not requested funding in their fiscal year 1998 
budget to complete the O'Hare Reservoir, IL, project, but plans 
to reprogram available funding to this purpose. Given the 
importance of this project, the Committee has recommended an 
appropriation of $2,100,000 to ensure completion in fiscal year 
1998.
    Upper Mississippi River System Environmental Management 
Program.--In the report to Congress on the Environmental 
Management Program, the Corps should include, as complete as 
possible, a quantification and qualification of project 
results, since inception, to provide an assessment of the 
Nation's return on investment for projects completed. This 
report will help give the Congress a fuller basis to evaluate 
the success of the program.
    Lake Pontchartrain storm water discharge, Louisiana.--The 
Committee has included $3,000,000 to continue the development 
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 to be 
used by the Corps of Engineers to continue construction of 
parallel protection and other priority work in fiscal year 
1998.
    Red River Waterway, Mississippi River to Shreveport, LA.--
An appropriation of $16,490,000 is recommended for the Red 
River Waterway, LA, project. The additional funding is provided 
for the Corps to complete the Eagle Bend Capout, and to 
initiate the Hadden-Fort DeRussy reinforcement; Ben Routh-Dupre 
reinforcement, and saline reinforcement in pool 1; Powhatan 
Dikes in pool 3; East Point Dikes in pool 4; and Moss Capout 
phase 2 in pool 5.
    The Committee is informed of the discovery of the 
shipwreck, Kentucky, located in the Red River Waterway. Given 
the significance of this find, the Committee expects the Corps 
to follow applicable rules and guidelines in the recovery of 
the Kentucky, and to include in future budget requests funding 
to address this new requirement.
    Baltimore Harbor and Channels, MD.--The Committee 
understands the Corps' Baltimore District recently completed a 
limited reevaluation report with a favorable recommendation for 
the Brewerton Channel extension and that the report is 
presently under review by the Corps. Given the fact that the 
project was authorized in 1958 and is necessary for safety and 
efficient passage of the larger ships calling on the Port of 
Baltimore, the Committee hopes the Corps will give serious 
consideration to including the project in the fiscal year 1999 
budget request.
    Poplar Island, MD.--The Committee recommends an 
appropriation of $25,621,000 for the Poplar Island restoration 
project in Maryland, which is $5,000,000 below the budget 
request for fiscal year 1998. The reduction is made without 
prejudice and is based on delays being experienced with real 
estate acquisition during the current year. The Committee is 
informed that previously appropriated funds will be carried 
over into fiscal year 1998, thus reducing the need for new 
appropriations to the amount recommended. The Committee further 
understands that phase I work can be fully funded with the 
amount included for fiscal 1998 and the expected carryover.
    North Jefferson City, MO.--The Committee notes that despite 
its encouragement in last year's report, only minimal progress 
has been made. The Committee directs that the Corps proceed 
expeditiously on the project, develop a project timetable, and 
submit a report to the Committee.
    Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway wildlife mitigation, Alabama 
and Mississippi.--Of the funds provided for wildlife mitigation 
on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, the Committee encourages 
the Corps to consider acquiring additional acreage in Neshoba 
County, MS, using existing authorization for the Tennessee-
Tombigbee Waterway mitigation, to alleviate access problems 
associated with previously acquired mitigation lands in that 
area.
    Reno, NV, flood warning system.--The Committee understands 
that the Corps is proceeding with activities related to the 
need for a flood preparedness and flood warning system for 
Reno, NV, as directed in the 1997 Emergency Supplemental 
Appropriations Act. The Corps is directed to use $250,000 of 
available funds to undertake planning for this work in fiscal 
year 1998.
    Acequias irrigation system, New Mexico.--The Committee has 
provided $1,000,000 for the acequias irrigation system in New 
Mexico in order to continue progress on this important project.
    Wilmington Harbor channel widening, North Carolina.--The 
Committee is aware that the Wilmington Harbor project in North 
Carolina involves three features which, if consolidated and not 
undertaken separately, would improve the construction 
management of the total project and produce a lower overall 
project cost to the Federal Government. In light of the 
potential efficiencies and savings, the Committee has included 
language in the bill to consolidate the three features of the 
project by modifying the project authorization. The Committee 
has included $2,430,000, $1,270,000 below the budget request, 
to begin construction of the modified Wilmington Harbor project 
in fiscal year 1998.
    Buford Trenton Irrigation District, ND.--An appropriation 
of $3,000,000 is recommended for the Corps of Engineers to 
begin to prioritizing the sites and land acquisition process 
for the Buford Trenton Irrigation District project in North 
Dakota.
    Houston-Galveston navigation channels, Texas.--The 
Committee understands the critical importance of widening and 
deepening the Houston-Galveston navigation channels, including 
the Port of Houston and the Houston ship channel. The Port of 
Houston draws cargo from every State, provides over 
$5,500,000,000 to the Nation's economy, generates nearly 
200,000 jobs, and is the largest container port in the Nation. 
It is the only major port in the United States that remains at 
a 40-foot depth, and the Committee understands the need to 
widen and deepen the Houston-Galveston navigation channels to 
permit safer, more cost-effective movement of cargo. The 
Committee is informed that the Corps believes it could use 
$23,900,000 in fiscal year 1998, although only $15,000,000 has 
been requested. If additional funds are needed in fiscal year 
1998, the Committee urges the Corps to reprogram additional 
resources to the project.
    Columbia River juvenile fish mitigation, Washington, 
Oregon, and Idaho.--Due to budget constraints, the Committee 
has had to recommend a $10,000,000 reduction below the budget 
request. The amount recommended is $21,000,000 more than the 
appropriation for the current fiscal year.
    The amount recommended supports continued improvements to 
juvenile fish bypass activities including extended length 
screens, electronic smolt monitoring, and other items. Funding 
is also included to complete the John Day passive integrated 
transponder [PIT] tag detector facility and to evaluate the 
impacts of reservoir drawdowns.
    The Committee believes that the regional consensus is 
important in carrying out the Columbia Fish Mitigation Program 
and that the region is better able to determine priorities for 
fish passage facilities and other modifications to scheduled 
activities. Therefore, the Committee expects adjustments 
required by the reduction in funding be made in a cooperative 
way in the region by the system configuration team [SCT].
    The Committee approved the Corps February 25, 1997, 
reprogramming request related to a study of the biological, 
social, and economic impacts of a drawdown of John Day, 
consistent with the terms and conditions specified in its June 
6, 1997, letter to the Assistant Secretary of the Army for 
Civil Works. The Bonneville Power Administration shall be 
responsible for preparing the analysis of direct and indirect 
power costs for this purpose. The Corps is directed to provide 
a final scoping document for the Committee's approval no later 
than 90 days from the date of enactment of this act. Based upon 
and acceptable review of the final scoping document, the 
Committee will permit the Corps to continue forward with the 
study within available funds. The Committee specifies that no 
funds shall be made available to drawdown John Day or make any 
physical modifications related to such an activity.
    Port Seattle, East Waterway, WA.--The Committee encourages 
the Corps to work with the non-Federal interest to carry out 
any work associated with the project which is later recommended 
by the Chief of Engineers and approved by the Secretary, and 
which is determined to be compatible with the project. The 
Secretary is further encouraged to credit, as appropriate, such 
non-Federal interest with the cost of such work in accordance 
with law and established cost sharing procedures. In analyzing 
the costs and benefits of such project, the Secretary may 
consider the costs and benefits produced by any work which is 
carried out by non-Federal interests and which the Secretary 
determines is compatible with such project.
    John Day lock and dam, WA--Kennewick skeletal remains.--The 
Committee is aware of a recent discovery of prehistoric 
skeletal remains and believes that it is in the public interest 
that information providing greater insight into America 
prehistory should be collected, preserved, and disseminated for 
the benefit of the country as a whole. The Corps should work 
cooperatively with all affected interest groups in determining 
the treatment and disposition of the Kennewick man skeleton, a 
set of ancient human remains found near Kennewick, WA, on the 
Columbia River is accomplished in the interest of all 
Americans. The Committee expects the Corps to keep such 
objectives in mind and act as an impartial party in resolving 
questions concerning the study and disposition of the remains.
    Houston-Galveston navigation channels, TX.--The Committee 
has provided $15,000,000 to initiate construction of the 
Houston-Galveston navigation channels project in Texas. The 
recommendation is the full amount requested in the amended 
budget request for fiscal year 1998. The Committee does not 
concur with the fully funded policy proposed by the 
administration and directs the Corps of Engineers to enter into 
a project cooperation agreement for the entire authorized 
project.
    Little Dell Lake, UT.--The Committee has included an 
appropriation of $1,000,000 to complete construction of 
recreation facilities at the Little Dell Lake, UT, project, and 
reimbursement to the Metropolitan Water District of Salt Lake 
City consistent with the May 23, 1997, project cooperation 
agreement.
    Levisa and Tug Forks of the Big Sandy River and Upper 
Cumberland River, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Virginia.--The 
Committee has provided a total of $55,667,000 for the Levisa 
and Tug Forks of the Big Sandy River and Upper Cumberland River 
project.
    In addition to amounts provided in the budget request, the 
bill includes $18,000,000 to continue the Harlan, KY, element 
of the project; $4,690,000 for the Williamsburg, KY, element of 
the project; $5,800,000 for the Pike County (Tug Fork) element; 
and $7,200,000 for continuation of flood proofing on the 
Middlesboro, KY, element of the project. In addition, the Corps 
is directed to continue construction of the Pike County, KY, 
element using funds previously appropriated.
    The Committee recommendation also includes $3,000,000 for 
the Upper Mingo County, WV, element; $6,300,000 for the Lower 
Mingo (Kermit), WV, element; $1,200,000 for the Wayne County, 
WV, element; $400,000 for the Tug Fork basin flood warning 
system; $1,000,000 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 $150,000 to 
complete the Lower Mingo, WV, detail project report.
    Lower Mud River, Milton, WV.--The Committee has included 
$100,000 for the Corps to initiate and complete a review of a 
National Resource Conservation Service [NRCS] watershed plan 
and environmental impact statement to determine what changes, 
if any, are required before construction begins.
    Aquatic plant control program.--The Committee has included 
$6,600,000, a $4,000,000 increase over the budget request, 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.
    Small flood control projects, (sec. 205).--The Committee 
recommendation for section 205 small flood control projects is 
$34,300,000.
    The Committee recommendation includes $75,000 to initiate 
and complete feasibly studies for the Resurrection River, AK, 
project; $300,000 for design of the Fort Fairfield, ME, flood 
control project; $275,000 for a cost shared feasibility study 
at Lake Carl Blackwell, OK; $280,000 for the Snoqualmie River, 
WA, small flood control project; $250,000 for the Corps to 
initiate and complete feasibility studies on the March Run 
(Sullivan County), PA, project; and $100,000 for a reevaluation 
of the economics and alternatives for flood protection on the 
Winooski River at Colchester, VT.
    Small navigation projects, (sec. 107).--An appropriation of 
$6,885,000 is recommended for small navigation projects, 
section 107, projects.
    The Committee recommendation includes $175,000 to initiate 
plans and specification on the Whittier Harbor, AK, project; 
$75,000 to initiate and complete plans and specifications for 
the Tatitlik Harbor, AK, project; $35,000 to complete the 
feasibility report the Tamgas Harbor, AK, project; $100,000 
each for the Corps to undertake limited reevaluation reports 
for the Haines Harbor and Kitchikan Harbor, AK, projects; 
$500,000 for initiation and completion of plans and 
specifications for the Unalaska Harbor, AK, project; and 
$100,000 to initiate studies on the Des Arc, AR, project.
    Emergency streambank and shoreline protection, (sec. 14).--
The Committee recommendation for section 14, emergency 
streambank and shoreline protection projects is $7,800,000. The 
recommendation includes $100,000 for the Corps to undertake 
erosion studies at Homer Harbor, AK.
    The Committee is aware that Tioga County, PA, communities 
have been devastated regularly by flooding and that there is a 
need for streambank protection and stabilization as well as 
stream restoration. The Committee directs the Corps to consider 
Tioga County for such a project.
    Beach erosion control, (sec. 103).--An appropriation of 
$3,000,000 is recommended for beach erosion control, section 
103 projects for fiscal year 1997.
    Projects modifications for improvement of the environment, 
(sec. 1135).--The Committee has provided a total of $24,752,000 
for section 1135, projects modifications for improvements of 
the environment. The recommendation includes $125,000 to 
initiate and complete plans and specifications for the 
Talkneetna, AK, project; $2,000,000 to continue the Amazon 
Creek wetlands restoration project in Oregon; $1,052,000 for 
feasibility studies, plans and specification, and construction 
of the Bear Creek, King County, WA, project; and $400,000 for 
feasibility studies for the Lake Washington Ship Canal, WA, 
Smolt Passage restoration project.
    Aquatic ecosystem restoration, (sec. 206).--An 
appropriation of $2,750,000 is recommended for the newly 
authorized aquatic ecosystem restoration program. Included in 
the Committee recommendation is $75,000 for the Badger Slough, 
AK; $100,000 for the Ship Creek, AK; $75,000 for the Snake 
River, AK, projects for the Corps to initiate and complete 
feasibility studies; and $500,000 for the Drakes Creek, Old 
Hickory Lake, TN, project.
    Environmental infrastructure assistance.--Several 
provisions of the Water Resources Development Acts of 1990, 
1992, and 1996 authorized pilot programs to demonstrate the 
need for Federal planning, design, and construction assistance 
for water related environmental infrastructure and 
environmental resources development projects. Many of these 
pilot programs, such as those authorized in sections 217 
through 222, 303, 304, 307, 313, 324, 331 and 340 of the 1992 
act, and sections 504 and 531 of the 1996 act, recognize that 
there are serious water and wastewater problems facing rural 
and small municipal localities which these small communities 
simply cannot afford to fix. The high cost per capita of these 
projects not only reflect the relatively small population 
served, but also the difficult construction conditions in 
mountainous and cold areas.
    Through these programs, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers 
has contacted many of these communities, offered to provide 
assistance, and subsequently has undertaken several projects. 
Under the authority of section 313 of the 1992 act, for 
example, the Corps this year will complete construction of the 
Mill Run water treatment project, and start construction of the 
Broad Top/Coaldale wastewater management project, both in south 
central Pennsylvania. Design work will begin on one flood 
control and two water line projects. In fiscal year 1998, 
construction of the Chestnut Ridge wastewater management 
project will begin. The Chestnut Ridge Joint Municipal 
Authority, Broad Top Township, and Coaldale Borough are 
actively pursuing additional funding. Having been planned as 
much as 20 years ago, these projects are now proceeding and, 
once completed, will provide higher standard of living for the 
communities they serve.
    Therefore, in an effort to bring about efficiencies and 
focus the effort of the Corps of Engineers, the Committee has 
recommended a general provision which would consolidate the 
numerous environmental infrastructure programs and has included 
$10,000,000 to undertake these types of projects. In carrying 
out this program, the Secretary of the Army is directed to give 
priority to projects located in rural areas and small 
municipalities.
    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 also strongly rejects 
these proposals.

    The Committee is concerned by the severe reduction, nearly 
$45,000,000, in the budget request for fiscal year 1998 for the 
Mississippi River and Tributaries project. The Committee feels 
this is unacceptable when only a few short years ago the 
Mississippi River 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 1,245,000 square miles, 
covering 41 percent of the contiguous United States including 
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. In addition, the project provides 
for navigation which is central to the Nation's economy.
    Therefore, flood control and protection and maintaining 
navigation along the Mississippi River and its tributaries is 
not an option, it is mandatory. The floods of 1993 demonstrated 
the projects' importance by averting $8,100,000,000 in flood 
damages. Over the years, the MR&T; project has saved an 
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 nearly $45,000,000 reduction below the 
appropriation for 1997 severely impacts this effort and 
increases the likelihood of higher flood damage disaster 
payments as the result of major flooding. The Committee hopes 
that future budgets will reflect the unique nature of the 
Mississippi River and Tributaries project and the area its 
protects.
    Southeast Arkansas, AR.--The Committee has included 
$500,000 for the Corps to complete the feasibility phase of the 
Southeast Arkansas, AR, study looking into the need to protect 
groundwater and to better utilize surface water resources in 
the Boeuf Tensas basin in Arkansas.
    Yazoo basin Backwater project, MR&T.--The; Committee is 
aware that the Water Resources Development Act of 1996 
clarified the definition of ``physical construction'', thus 
emphasizing the Federal responsibility on the Yazoo Backwater 
project. The Committee understands that due to emergencies 
caused by flooding, delays will be experienced in the 
completion of planning documents for the tributaries project 
and the backwater project in the Yazoo basin. Therefore, the 
Committee has provided an additional $500,000 for the Corps to 
resume the original schedule of work on these two flood 
protection measures in order to accelerate the process for 
identifying the best alternative for reducing floods.
    Yazoo basin, demonstration erosion control, MR&T.--The; 
Committee remains concerned by the significant decrease in 
funding for the demonstration erosion control project. The 
Committee has provided $15,000,000, $5,000,000 above the budget 
request, and expects the Corps to expedite work on East Goose 
Creek in Oxford, MS.
    Horn Lake Creek, MS.--The Committee encourages the Corps to 
continue to work with the city of Horn Lake, MS, in addressing 
flooding problems along Horn Lake Creek.
    Grand Prairie/Bayou Metro, AR.--The Committee directs the 
Corps to continue design activities on the Grand Prairie 
portion of the Grand Prairie/Bayou Metro, AR, project and to 
initiate a revaluation of the Bayou Metro portion and expects 
the local cost share of that reevaluation to be recovered 
during project construction.

    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.
    Lower Chena River dredging, Alaska.--The Committee has 
included $800,000 for the Corps of Engineers to dredge a 
navigational channel within the lower reaches of the Chena 
River to reestablish safe water depths.
    Mississippi River between the Missouri River and 
Minneapolis, IA.--The Committee urges the Corps of Engineers to 
work cooperatively with the city of Dubuque, IA, to deposit 
dredge material at appropriate points near the Dubuque 
Riverboat Museum.
    Kaskaskia River navigation, Illinois.--The Committee 
recommendation includes an additional $490,000 for the Corps to 
examine the feasibility of operating remotely the low volume 
Kaskaskia Lock and Dam from a high volume lock and dam located 
elsewhere within the St. Louis District.
    Calcasieu River and Pass, LA.--The Committee has provided 
an additional $200,000 for the Corps of Engineers to reevaluate 
the feasibility of dredging a 40-foot channel in the Cameron 
Loop to the Port of Cameron, LA.
    Baltimore Harbor and Channels, Tolchester Channel S-turn, 
Maryland.--In fiscal years 1996-97, the Committee directed the 
Corps to complete ongoing studies and design work associated 
with correcting the dangerous S-turn in the Tolchester Channel. 
This serious safety issue has been brought to the attention on 
numerous occasions over the years. The Committee understands 
the Corps' Baltimore District recently completed report with a 
favorable recommendation and that the report is currently under 
review by Corps headquarters, and that dredging work could 
begin in fiscal year 1999 once approved. Given the safety 
considerations, the Committee urges the Corps to request funds 
in its fiscal year 1999 budget request to Congress.
    Cedar River Harbor, MI.--An appropriation of $2,377,000 is 
recommended for the Corps to advertise, award and construct 
repairs to the east breakwater at Cedar River Harbor in 
Michigan.
    Clearwater Lake, MO.--The Committee has included an 
additional $350,000 for the Corps of Engineers to undertake 
engineering and design activities related to the relocation of 
facilities impacted by flooding at Clearwater Lake in Missouri.
    Cheesequake Creek, NJ.--Funding in the amount of $1,500,000 
is recommended for the Corps to undertake repairs to the south 
jetty at Cheesequake Creek in New Jersey.
    Tuckerton Creek, NJ.--The recommendation includes $650,000 
for the Corps to complete the maintenance dredging cycle for 
the Tuckerton Creek in New Jersey.
    Upper Rio Grande water operation model, New Mexico.--The 
Committee has provide $1,000,000 for scheduling reservoir 
operations for the Corps to continue joint activities with 
other Federal agencies related to the need for an Upper Rio 
Grande water operations model to help water managers in flood 
control operations, water accounting, and evaluation of water 
operations alternatives.
    Clarence Cannon Dam and Reservoir, MO.--The Committee has 
provided an additional $850,000 for the Corps to accomplish 
necessary infrastructure repairs at the Clarence Cannon Dam and 
Reservoir in Missouri. Of this amount $300,000 to repair 
cavitation damage necessary to ensure continued operation and 
reliability of service to the power customer and $550,000 is to 
repair deteriorated project roads, as appropriate, to ensure 
public safety.
    Missouri River between Fort Peck, MT, and Gavins Point Dam, 
ND.--An appropriation of $750,000 is recommended to allow the 
Corps to undertake weir construction for bank stabilization in 
the vicinity of Buford Trenton in North Dakota.
    Garrison Dam, Lake Sakakawea, ND.--The Committee 
recommendation for the Garrison Dam, Lake Sakakawea project in 
North Dakota includes $50,000 for the Corps to continue 
mosquito control activities.
    Rogue River, OR.--The Committee has provided an additional 
$607,000 for the Rogue River project in Oregon. The 
recommendation includes an additional $407,000 for maintenance 
dredging and $200,000 for the Corps to conduct a study to 
update the advisability of relocating the existing entrance in 
order to reduce annual maintenance dredging costs.
    Charleston Harbor, SC.--The Committee has included an 
additional $900,000 for the Corps to accomplish ditching, 
clearing, site preparation, and diking of the southern and 
middle cells of the Clouter Creek disposal area which are owned 
by the Army Corps for purposes of disposal of dredge material 
from areas previously occupied by the Charleston Navy Base.
    Oahe Dam-Lake Oahe, SD.--The Committee has included an 
additional $325,000 for the Oahe Dam-Lake Oahe, SD, project to 
address sediment buildup problems downstream in the vicinity of 
Pierre and Fort Pierre, SD. The Committee understands that 
sediment buildup at the base of Oahe Dam combined with winter 
ice conditions creates a situation which results in either 
severe flooding in the Pierre and Fort Pierre area or reduced 
power generation. The additional funding is to be used by the 
Corps to assess the causes, problems, and solutions to the 
problem. The Committee directs the Corps to coordinate the 
study effort with the Western Power Administration.
    Ball Mountain Dam, VT.--The Committee directs the Corps to 
use available funds to take additional steps, described in its 
Ball Mountain Dam report, if sediment control steps already 
taken prove to be inadequate.
    Burlington Harbor, VT.--The Committee directs the Corps of 
Engineers to inspect the breakwater at Burlington Harbor, VT, 
and make needed repairs. The Corps should work with local 
interest to evaluate the configuration of the breakwater, the 
condition of the shoreline, and to address other navigation 
related concerns.
    Connecticut River basin (master plan), VT.--The Committee 
has provided an appropriation of $200,000 for the Corps to 
continue a comprehensive update of the master plans for the 
five Corps of Engineer flood control reservoirs in the 
Connecticut River basin in Vermont.
    Willapa River and Harbor, WA.--An additional $3,000,000 is 
provided for the Corps to undertake structural and beach 
nourishment measures to protect the highway from wave erosion, 
and to halt further migration of the North Channel.
    Tricities land conveyance, Washington.--The Committee is 
informed that the Corps and local interests are negotiating an 
agreement associated with land transfer work in the tricities 
of Washington. All parties are to be commended for working 
diligently to solve the costs allocation issues. The Committee 
understands that the six local government entities are working 
on an agreement to pay the Corps for the reasonable costs of 
administrative support, as authorized by law, currently 
estimated at $120,000. The Committee also recognizes the 
parties are continuing to resolve responsibility for potential 
NEPA documentation and CERCLA costs in association with the 
land Conveyance. Since this is to be a joint agreement between 
the parties, the Committee expects all costs associated with 
this effort to be held to a minimum so that the cost allocation 
agreement is adhered to.
    Bluestone Lake and Dam, WV.--The Committee recommends an 
appropriation of $1,828,000 for the Bluestone Lake and Dam in 
West Virginia, including $575,000 for the Corps to initiate 
engineering and design and model study of proposed 
modifications to the dam to allow for drift and debris removal 
and for completion of a dam safety report.
    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: 
Coosa-Alabama River navigation system, Alabama; Anclote River, 
FL; Brunswick Harbor, GA; and Little River and Murrells Inlets, 
SC.
    Direct funding of O&M; requirements, hydropower generation 
facilities.--The Committee is aware that the Corps of Engineers 
and the Department of Energy have been discussing an agreement 
under which the Bonneville Power Administration [BPA] would 
provide direct funding for the annual operations and 
maintenance costs associated with Corps hydropower generation 
facilities in the Pacific Northwest. This approach would 
replace the existing procedure under which the Corps requests 
annual appropriations to cover those costs with BPA providing 
reimbursement to the Treasury. The Committee believes that such 
an agreement for O&M; costs would provide greater assurance to 
the Corps of an appropriate level of funding for maintenance of 
power facilities, thereby reducing the frequency of costly 
overhauls and increasing the reliability of BPA's power supply 
to Federal Columbia River Power System electric ratepayers.
    Last year, the energy and water development appropriations 
conference agreement supported implementation of such a direct 
funding agreement for all hydropower O&M; costs between the 
Bureau of Reclamation and the BPA by assuming such an agreement 
would be implemented at the beginning of fiscal year 1997 and 
removing all associated discretionary funding effective with 
that date. The Committee recently heard testimony from the 
Regional Director of the Pacific Northwest region of the Bureau 
of Reclamation stating that: (1) the now implemented 
Reclamation/BPA O&M; agreement has created a more businesslike 
arrangement, fostered better joint planning, reduced costs, and 
improved the lines of communications between BPA and 
Reclamation, and (2) while Reclamation had concerns similar to 
those of the Corps, regarding the alignment of multipurpose 
projects priorities, prior to completion of the agreement, 
those concerns have been found to be misplaced.
    Given this experience, the Committee strongly urges the 
Corps to consider the potential benefits and savings by 
entering into a direct funding agreement similar to that of the 
Bureau of Reclamation for operations and maintenance activities 
with the Bonneville Power Administration and to take steps to 
move to finalize an agreement in this regard.

                           regulatory program

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $101,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     112,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     106,000,000

    An appropriation of $106,000,000 is recommended for 
regulatory programs of the Corps of Engineers. The Committee 
has recommended an increase of $5,000,000 over the current year 
funding level to offset the inflation impacts in this program. 
This program, which has been held at the 1995 level of 
appropriation, is labor intensive and has had to absorb 
inflationary increases for several years.
    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.
    In discharging its responsibilities under 33 U.S.C. Section 
1344 for a permit for completion of the terminal 5 berth 
enhancement project in the West Waterway of the Duwamish River 
in Seattle, the Corps shall recognize that both the tribe and 
the applicant hold legally protected interests with respect to 
the permit. The applicant has a legally protected right to 
construct and operate facilities for maritime commerce, the 
applicant has continuously exercised this right at the location 
of the proposed project for many decades. The tribes have a 
legally protected right to harvest fish in their usual and 
accustomed areas. The rights of both parties were recognized in 
the creation of the applicable treaties. The Corps shall not 
interpret either party's rights in a manner that unreasonably 
interferes with any party's protected interests. The Corps 
shall seek to maximize maritime usage for this facility 
provided that treaty harvesters' physical access to the site, 
as measured by their functional ability to harvest fish at that 
location or at newly created or enhanced fishing sites of the 
same or greater quality in the vicinity of the West Waterway, 
is not materially diminished.

                 Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies

Appropriations, 1997....................................\1\ $425,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................      14,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      10,000,000

\1\ Includes $415,000,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations.

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $10,000,000 
for flood control and coastal emergencies. This is $4,000,000 
below the budget request.
    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.

                            general expenses

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $149,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     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 which is 
the same as the budget request.


                  TITLE II--DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

                Central Utah Project Completion Account

Appropriations, 1997....................................     $43,627,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................      41,153,000
Committee recommendation................................      41,153,000

    The Committee recommendation for fiscal year 1998 to carry 
out the provisions of the Central Utah Project Completion Act 
is $41,153,000, the same as the budget request.
    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.

                         Bureau of Reclamation

                      Water and Related Resources

Appropriations, 1997....................................\1\ $685,937,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     651,552,000
Committee recommendation................................     688,379,000

\1\ Includes $7,355,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations.

    An appropriation of $688,379,000 is recommended by the 
Committee for water and related resources activities of the 
Bureau of Reclamation.
    The budget request for fiscal year 1998 restructures the 
accounts of the Bureau of Reclamation to better reflect the 
activities and evolving role of the Bureau as a water 
management agency. By depicting more clearly how the Bureau of 
Reclamation uses its budgetary resources, this account also 
will facilitate compliance with the Government Performance and 
Results Act [GPRA].
    A new account, ``Water and related resources,'' 
incorporates activities previously funded under general 
investigations, construction program, and operation and 
maintenance. The budget request for fiscal year 1998 totals 
$651,552,000, which is $27,030,000 below the comparable 
appropriation for 1997.
    The amounts recommended by the Committee are shown on the 
following table along with the budget request.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Central Arizona project, Arizona.--The Committee has 
recommended a reduction of $5,322,000 for the Central Arizona 
project. The recommendation includes a reduction of $3,872,000 
for excess noncontract costs and $1,450,000 in nonproject fish 
and wildlife management and development costs. The Committee 
directs the Bureau to carefully analyze future requirements to 
ensure that noncontract costs more accurately reflect 
Reclamation's construction activities which are nearly 
complete.
    West Salt River Valley, AZ.--Funding in the amount of 
$475,000 has been provided for the Bureau of Reclamation to 
continue studies of alternatives for water resource management 
of the different water sources, infrastructure development, and 
economic and environmental issues in the west Phoenix 
metropolitan area.
    Hungry Horse Dam, MT.--The Committee is concerned with the 
impacts of operations at Hungry Horse Dam on recreation, and 
the resident fish populations. In accordance with the Northwest 
Power Planning Council's amendments, the Secretary of the 
Interior, acting through the Bureau of Reclamation, should 
consider the Council's plan and to the maximum extent possible 
operate in accordance with the plan.
    Animas-La Plata project, Colorado and New Mexico.--The 
Committee recommendation includes $6,000,000, the same amount 
requested in the budget request. The Committee is aware that 
last year the Governor of Colorado and the Secretary of the 
Interior initiated a process to examine alternatives to the 
authorized Animas-La Plata project. The process calls for a 
proposal from parties to the settlement and one from opponents. 
Funding is provided to support this process and other aspects 
of the project as may be possible.
    Middle Rio Grande project, New Mexico.--An additional 
$500,000 is recommended for the Bureau of Reclamation to 
install drains in the Pena Blanca area to eliminate seepage 
problems caused by Cochiti Lake.
    San Juan River Gallup, Navajo water supply project, New 
Mexico.--The Committee has included $450,000 for the San Juan 
Gallup-Navajo pipeline project, including $150,000 for the 
Bureau of Reclamation to continue activities related to ongoing 
activities and $300,000 for the Bureau to undertake a study of 
the feasibility of using the Mount Taylor mine as a possible 
source of water supply for the city of Gallup.
    Santa Fe water reclamation and reuse, New Mexico.--The 
Committee has included $500,000 for the Bureau of Reclamation 
to initiate preconstruction feasibility, studies and activities 
for the Santa Fe water reclamation and reuse project in New 
Mexico.
    Upper Rio Grande water operation model study, New Mexico.--
The Committee directs the Bureau of Reclamation to use $400,000 
of available funds to continue the upper Rio Grande water 
operation model study in New Mexico which investigates ways to 
be responsive to current drought conditions and other current 
water resource management issues.
    Newlands project, Nevada.--The Committee recommendation 
includes $500,000 to mitigate the impact of increased fish and 
wildlife activities associated with the newlands project. The 
Bureau is directed to make an assessment of the need for 
additional operation and maintenance funding related to 
increased operations of the Marble Bluff fish facility.
    Garrison diversion project, North Dakota.--The Committee 
recommendation for the Garrison diversion project is 
$30,875,000, an increase of $7,500,000 over the budget request 
for the Bureau of Reclamation to continue development of 
municipal, rural, and industrial water programs for the Oaks 
test area, and for Indian water systems. The Committee has also 
included language in the bill to increase the authorized level 
of appropriations for the municipal, rural, and industrial 
water systems for the Fort Berthold, Stand Rock, and Spirit 
Lake Nation (formerly Fort Totten) in order to allow activities 
to continue.
    National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.--The recommendation 
for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation includes 
$1,500,000, the same as the budget request, for fish and 
wildlife management and development.
    The Committee is generally pleased with the way activities 
have been carried out in the cooperative program between the 
National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the Bureau of 
Reclamation. It is still the Committee's expectation that, 
while not required by law, the Foundation will make every 
effort to secure a 2- or 3-to-1 non-Federal contribution on 
projects and activities undertaken through these 
appropriations. Further, the Committee directs the Bureau of 
Reclamation to submit to the Committee as soon as practical 
after the end of the fiscal year a status report on how the 
funding for the previous year has been allocated by project, 
the level and source of funding both Federal and non-Federal, a 
completion schedule for each project, and an analysis of the 
unobligated and unexpended balances related to these 
appropriations.
    Ground Water Recharge Demonstration Program.--The Committee 
recommendation for the Ground Water Recharge Demonstration 
Program includes $500,000 for the Bureau of Reclamation to 
continue the Equus beds recharge project in Kansas. The 
Committee understands that the project is being cost shared on 
a 50-50 basis.
    Applied science and technology development.--Additional 
funding of $1,000,000 has been included for the Bureau to 
conduct and complete the in situ technology research field test 
to achieve conclusive demonstration of the technology, 
including the efficient control and manipulation of transport 
solutions, a cost-shared field demonstration. These funds are 
to be cost shared by the private sector participant as provided 
for in the contract. An additional $300,000 is also provided 
for oversight Bureau oversight and related technology transfer 
activities to other ground water programs administered by the 
Bureau to assure that the Federal investment in this technology 
is maximized.
    Desalination Research and Development Program.--The 
Committee recommends an appropriation of $3,000,000 for the 
Desalination Research and Development Program. The recommended 
increase over the budgeted amount is in response to new 
authorizing legislation expanding the Bureau's desalination 
responsibilities. The Bureau is directed to make an effort to 
extend the benefits under this program to small rural 
communities. The Committee recommendation also includes 
additional funds for research and development activities to 
develop lower cost and implementable desalting solutions, and 
funds for cost-shared work to develop the most efficient pump 
for reverse osmosis desalination.
    Wetlands development.--The Committee recommends a 
$1,000,000 reduction in the increase request in the budget for 
1998. Within the $6,659,000 recommended, the Committee has 
included $1,450,000 under fish and wildlife management and 
development for the Bureau to undertake Central Arizona project 
fish and wildlife activities.
    Operation and maintenance program costs.--The Committee has 
been made aware of and is concerned about reports of 
exceptionally large increases in operation and maintenance 
costs attributable to a number of Bureau of Reclamation 
projects including incidents where, is some cases, overhead 
costs are responsible for more than one-half of the costs 
growth for the year. On the other hand, the Committee is 
informed that the inspector general of the Department of the 
Interior accomplishes annual audits and none has show any 
indication that reclamation costs are excessive or questionable 
in any way. Yet, the Committee still finds the criticism 
disturbing, if in fact, it is true. Therefore, the Bureau of 
Reclamation is directed to conduct a survey of program 
operation and maintenance costs associated with each of its 
projects and provide a report to the Committee on the amount of 
operation and maintenance costs attributable to each project; 
the percentage change on an annual basis for each project; the 
amount of overhead cost associated with the O&M; costs for each 
project; the charge to beneficiaries for municipal industrial, 
irrigation, power, fish and wildlife, recreation, and other 
reclamation purposes; the percentage of O&M; attributable to 
overhead for each project; and a brief explanation of why any 
overhead rate exceeds 20 percent of the total O&M; cost 
attributable to each project. The information shall cover 
fiscal years 1995-97 and be provided to Appropriations 
Committees of the House and Senate.
    Finally, the Committee strongly encourages the Bureau to 
create new opportunities for stakeholders to participate in the 
review and development of operation and maintenance budgets for 
their respective projects. The Committee believes that those 
responsible for the repayment of O&M; charges should have an 
opportunity for meaningful consultation and coordination with 
the Bureau during the formulation of the annual budget 
submission.
    Title XVI--Reclamation Wastewater and Ground Water 
Program.--The Committee is concerned with the increasing size, 
potential Federal liability, and commitments being made by 
local interests with the expectation of Federal participation 
in the Title--XVI Reclamation Wastewater and Ground Water 
Program. It should be pointed out that Federal participation in 
projects started in previous years have not kept pace with the 
expected level of support anticipated by local interests, and 
the reauthorization legislation, which became law last year, 
has placed an even greater expectation and burden on already 
strained budget resources of the Committee. Further, in 
reviewing specific project schedules, the Committee understands 
that more and more local sponsors are proceeding on their own 
in advance of a commitment by the Federal Government to 
participate in the project. Local sponsor who take this action 
do so at their own risk.
    It is also clear that budget constraints in the future will 
continue to hold down the ability of the Committee to commit to 
additional new projects, particularly projects that carry large 
amounts of Federal cost sharing. Therefore, the Committee 
supports efforts of the Bureau of Reclamation to develop and 
apply criteria to prioritize the numerous projects awaiting 
funding as a result of the new authorizing legislation. The 
process and criteria should be consistent with the authorizing 
legislation.

               California Bay-Delta Ecosystem Restoration

Appropriations, 1997....................................................
Budget request, 1998....................................    $143,300,000
Committee recommendation................................      50,000,000

    The California Bay-Delta Ecosystem Restoration Program, 
commonly referred to as CALFED, is a joint program between the 
State of California, and several Federal agencies with the 
objective of developing a comprehensive, long-term solution to 
the complex and interrelated water and other resource problems 
in the bay-delta region. The California Bay-Delta Environmental 
Enhancement Act, which authorized this program, became law in 
November 1996 and authorizes $143,300,000 per year in 
additional Federal funding for bay-delta ecosystem restoration 
activities in 1998, 1999, and 2000. It is estimated that the 
total cost of this effort could be $2,000,000,000 to 
$8,000,000,000. The program will focus on ways to improve the 
health of the ecosystem and improving management of the water 
resources in the region.
    The Committee commends the diverse interest groups for 
their efforts and interest in solving the challenging issues 
related to restoring the bay-delta ecosystem. But the Committee 
is concerned that the program is not ready or capable of 
efficiently and effectively utilizing $143,300,000 in the first 
year of existence. Recent efforts associated with the central 
Utah project demonstrates that 4 to 5 years is needed for a 
program of this nature to mature and grow thereby reducing the 
chances of waste and ensuring that only the best projects and 
activities receive funding.
    Further, critical planning and environment reviews, namely 
the programmatic EIR/EIS which will set out the preferred 
alternative restoration program, are currently not complete and 
it will be late in calendar year 1998 before it is finalized 
and in place. The mechanism to review project proposals is 
unclear and time will be needed to strengthen this process and 
sort through the thousands of proposals for which funding will 
be requested. While CALFED is an important undertaking, it must 
be kept in mind that this initiative must compete with other 
high priority programs during a time of reduced budget 
allocations and constraints. Therefore, it is essential that 
the Committee have a high level of confidence that the funding 
made available will be used fully and efficiently.
    Based on the information available to the Committee, and in 
light of the many requests made for fiscal year 1998, the 
Committee can recommend only $50,000,000 for the CALFED 
initiative. This action is taken without prejudice and in the 
spirit of ensuring the long-term success of the program. As the 
restoration program matures, the review process is finalized 
and strengthened, and the required environmental documentation 
is completed, the Committee will review the program for 
additional funding needs. During fiscal year 1998, the 
Committee expects a rigorous, competitive review process will 
be established--a process which ensures that Federal funds are 
allocated to only those projects that will provide the greatest 
benefit to the bay-delta ecosystem. The Committee also expects 
that performance measures, indicators of ecosystem health and 
associated monitoring protocols, be established as part of the 
review process. Further, the Committee directs that, to the 
greatest extent possible, Federal funds be spent primarily for 
on the ground activities and not for administrative, overhead, 
or support activities. It is thus the Committee's expectation 
that the participating Federal agencies will obtain these 
administrative and other costs from the individual agency 
appropriations account. Similarly, the restoration coordination 
program's administrative costs should be held to a minimum.

                central valley project restoration fund

Appropriations, 1997....................................     $38,096,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................      39,130,000
Committee recommendation................................      25,130,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $25,130,000. 
The Committee understands that $14,000,000 of carryover 
appropriations from prior years is available for use in 1998 
and, therefore, has reduced the funding request accordingly.
    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 administration

Appropriations, 1997....................................     $46,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................      47,658,000
Committee recommendation................................      47,558,000

    The Committee recommendation for policy and administration 
expenses is $47,558,000.
    This 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.
    The Committee is concerned about the administrative 
overhead costs in the Sacramento regional office of the Bureau 
of Reclamation and has recommended a $100,000 reduction in 
those costs. The Committee is aware of criticism of the 
regional office that it has been unresponsive to concerns 
regarding its management practices and neglect of regional 
issues.
                    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. The Committee has 
reorganized the Department of Energy's nondefense accounts to 
create the following structure:
    Energy research:
        Solar and renewable energy;
        Nuclear energy;
        Environment, safety, and health;
        Magnetic fusion energy; and
        Energy support activities.
    Uranium supply and enrichment.
    Nondefense environmental management.
    Uranium enrichment decontamination and decommissioning 
fund.
    Nuclear waste fund.
    Science:
        High energy physics;
        Nuclear physics;
        Biological and environmental research;
        Basic energy sciences; and
        Other energy research.
    Departmental administration.
    Inspector general.
    Community relations.--The Department of Energy's success in 
forging support among communities in which DOE facilities are 
located has been mixed. The Committee recommends that 
particular effort be made to improve community relations by 
encouraging DOE and contractor employees to interact with and 
become a part of their communities.
    Community relations have been particularly difficult in 
those situations in which the Department's facilities have been 
isolated by secrecy and set apart by social and economic 
factors. The Committee commends the Department for its initial 
efforts to recognize and address these difficult issues and, in 
particular, for the establishment of the Hispanic outreach 
initiative.
    The Department, its employees, and the employees of its 
contractors have unique capabilities that could be of great 
benefit to their communities. The Committee has reestablished 
the university and science education program to formalize a 
portion of the Department's efforts in this regard and will 
continue to review other specific proposals that could assist 
in this regard.

                       executive order no. 12902

    The Committee is aware of interest over many years in 
feasible cost-effective applications for solar energy within 
the Federal Government. The goal has been addressed in 
legislation and in Executive Order No. 12902, dated March 8, 
1994. The Committee intends that the Federal Government utilize 
solar technology wherever economically feasible.
    Consistent with these goals and objectives, the Office of 
Management and Budget [OMB] is directed to coordinate a 
Governmentwide effort to find feasible, cost-effective 
applications for solar energy within the Federal Government and 
in the application of Federal programs. The OMB shall assess 
progress made under Executive Order No. 12902 and report to 
Congress no later than 120 days after enactment of this 
provision. The report shall compile existing data, identify 
viable, cost-effective use of solar technology, and specify 
further actions necessary to assure progress in Federal 
Government use of solar technology.

                        energy research programs

Appropriations, 1997....................................................
Budget estimate, 1998...................................  $1,084,178,000
Committee recommendation................................     966,940,000

    The Committee has consolidated the Department of Energy's 
programs related to energy production and consumption within a 
new account: energy research. Those programs are: solar and 
renewable energy; nuclear energy; nondefense environment 
safety, and health; magnetic fusion, and; related energy 
support activities.

                       solar and renewable energy

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $266,344,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     344,700,000
Committee recommendation................................     301,422,000

    The Committee urges the Department to develop an agencywide 
program to pool resources and work with States to develop and 
implement their renewable energy portfolios in preparation for 
utility deregulation. This should include funding for 
organizations like the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to 
provide assistance with advanced resource assessment and 
mapping techniques.
    Solar energy.--The Committee has provided $189,111,000, an 
increase of $14,774,000 over the current level, for solar 
energy programs. The Committee recommendation includes: 
$2,500,000 for solar building technology research to be 
allocated among quality assurance, technology deployment, and 
technology development as it is in the current year; the 
Committee has provided $69,521,000, an increase of $10,000,000 
over the current year for photovoltaic energy systems to 
provide, in part, for the President's million solar roofs 
initiative, within that amount, $2,000,000 shall be made 
available to support the ongoing research in photovoltaics 
conducted by the Southeast and Southwest regional photovoltaic 
experiment stations, and; $14,350,000 for solar thermal energy 
systems to be allocated in accordance with the request except 
that funds are not provided to deploy additional dish/engine 
systems since two were deployed in fiscal year 1997 and funds 
are not provided for systems and markets/industrial assistance.
    Biofuels.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$60,000,000 for biofuels energy systems, an increase of 
$5,025,000 over the current level. The Committee recommends 
that the funds provided be allocated in the following manner: 
within the ``Biopower energy systems'' account: $1,500,000 for 
thermochemical conversion, $23,000,000 for system development, 
and $3,000,000 for biomass for cogeneration; within biofuels 
energy systems: $27,000,000 for ethanol production, including 
the requested amount for the biomass ethanol plant in Jennings, 
LA, $3,500,000 for feedstock development, and $2,000,000 for 
the regional biomass energy program.
    In fiscal year 1997, the Department completed funding for 
biomass gasifiers in Vermont and Hawaii. The Committee is aware 
of proposals to upgrade those facilities to demonstrate the 
application of more advanced energy conversion technologies. 
The Committee is supportive of those proposals and recommends 
that the Department enter into cost-shared partnerships to 
demonstrate those advanced technologies if the non-Federal 
partners are willing to provide 50/50 cost sharing for the 
additional costs.
    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 
the technologies if the non-Federal partners provide the 
required cost sharing.
    Wind.--The Committee recommends $34,640,000 for wind energy 
systems, an increase of $5,654,000 over fiscal year 1997, and 
recommends the following amounts within turbine research: 
$2,000,000 for near-term research and testing, an increase of 
$2,000,000 over fiscal year 1997; $5,000,000 for the next-
generation turbine project, an increase of $5,000,000 over the 
fiscal year 1997 level; and no funds have been provided for the 
small wind turbine project which has received no new funds in 
the last 2 years. The Committee recommends $8,300,000, the same 
as the fiscal year 1997 level, for cooperative research and 
testing. From the funds provided, $2,000,000 is to complete 
installation of wind turbines at Kotzebue, AK.
    International solar energy.--The Committee recommends 
$2,000,000, an increase of $1,250,000 over the fiscal year 1997 
level for the U.S. initiative on joint implementation.
    Geothermal.--The Committee recommends $30,000,000, a slight 
increase over the level provided in fiscal year 1997, of which 
$300,000 is provided to continue operation of the ocean thermal 
energy conversion system at Keahole Point, Kona, HI, in order 
to: obtain operation data regarding components, performance, 
and output; provide potential commercial partners with a 
functioning demonstration of the technology; and continue to 
demonstrate U.S. leadership in the development of ocean thermal 
energy conversion technology.
    The Committee has provided $300,000, the same as the budget 
request, for the Geo-Heat Center at the Oregon Institute of 
Technology.
    Hydrogen research.--The Committee recommends $19,000,000, a 
$4,000,000 increase above the level of the request.
    The Committee is concerned that the Department of Energy 
has invested heavily in hydrogen research and development with 
inadequate attention to the validation and deployment of new 
technologies. Therefore, the Committee recommends that an 
operational test and evaluation program be established and 
administered at the Nevada test site wherein production, 
storage, distribution, and utilization can be integrated at a 
single site. This initiative will facilitate quantitative 
understanding of technology capabilities in a comprehensive 
functional system.
    The Committee directs the Department to support the 
Russian-American Fuel Cell Consortium [RAFCO] demonstration of 
United States fuel cell power. The Committee has included 
$4,000,000 for this initiative.
    Renewable Indian energy resources.--The Committee has 
provided $4,000,000, the same amount as provided in fiscal year 
1997, for the renewable Indian energy resources program to 
encourage the vertical integration of energy production on 
Indian reservations.
    Electric energy systems and storage.--The Committee 
recommendation for electric energy systems and storage is 
$44,500,000, an increase of $12,750,000 over the amount 
provided in fiscal year 1997. The increase is due to a 
$12,750,000 increase in funding for high temperature 
superconducting research and development; one of the 
Department's most promising research programs. The Committee 
has provided $8,000,000 to complete the electric and magnetic 
fields research and development program. The Committee has not 
provided funding for the climate challenge program which 
received no funding in fiscal year 1997.
    Remote power.--The Committee is concerned by the uncertain 
future renewable energy technologies face in a deregulated 
electricity market. However, there is one area of applications 
for which the Committee contends renewable energy technologies 
are close to being a viable alternative to traditional energy 
sources.
    In much of the developing world, and portions of the United 
States, the costs of electricity transmission and distribution 
systems are prohibitive. As a result, large amounts of 
electricity are generated using comparatively expensive and 
polluting diesel generators. In may cases, renewable energy 
technologies are cost competitive. They are not utilized, 
however, for two related reasons; reliability and acceptance.
    For technologies that will be unable to compete in a 
deregulated, utility-based electricity market, the Committee 
directs the Department to focus near-term research on the 
development of reliable systems for remote applications in 
occasionally hostile climates.
    For example, the Department should consider programs to 
deploy solar, wind, fuel cell, and biomass technologies in 
remote areas of the United States. The objective of the 
demonstrations should be to displace diesel generation. 
Therefore, the Department should develop and demonstrate cost 
competitive, modular technologies as reliable, easy to operate, 
and maintain as diesel generators. The Committee has included 
$5,000,000 for this initiative.
    Program direction.--The Committee recommendation for solar 
and renewable energy program direction is $13,811,000, a 
$2,083,000 increase from the amount provided in fiscal year 
1997. The amount recommended provides for a 15-percent 
reduction in the amount requested for salaries.

                        nuclear energy programs

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $219,890,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     311,877,000
Committee recommendation................................     244,281,000

    The Committee recommendation for nuclear energy research 
and development is $66,642,000, a reduction of $45,261,000 from 
the request.
    Advanced radioisotope power systems.--The Committee 
recommends $45,000,000 for advanced radioisotope power systems, 
an increase of $6,738,000 from the amount provided in fiscal 
year 1997.
    Advanced test reactor fusion irradiation.--An amount of 
$2,000,000 was requested for materials irradiation to support 
the magnetic fusion energy program. The Committee has provided 
no funds within the ``Nuclear energy'' account for this 
activity but has included a significant increase above the 
amount requested in the magnetic fusion energy program. Of that 
increase, $2,000,000 is available for advanced test reactor 
fusion irradiation.
    Nuclear energy security.--The Committee has not provided 
funds for the Department's proposed nuclear energy security 
program. The Committee supports the use of nuclear energy to 
produce electricity. However, it is the view of the Committee 
that utility companies' decisions regarding the continued use 
of nuclear energy will be based on cost, public perception, and 
technical considerations in that order. It is the Committee's 
view that the Department's proposed program to address 
technical issues will have insufficient impact to justify the 
expense and that any technical issues that need to be resolved 
by utilities can well be resolved at their own expense.
    Uranium programs.--Due to budget constraints, the Committee 
has provided $71,400,000 instead of the requested $85,535,000 
for uranium programs.
    Isotope support.--The Committee recommendation for isotope 
support is $17,504,000, an increase of $4,800,000 from the 
fiscal year 1997 level. The $4,200,000 reduction from the 
request is due to the Committee's recommendation that 
$6,704,000, the same as the amount provide in fiscal year 1997, 
be provided for isotope production and distribution, instead of 
the $10,904,000 requested.
    Termination costs.--The Committee has provided $72,035,000, 
a reduction of $4,000,000 for termination costs. The reduction 
results from the Committee's recommendation to provide only 
$3,000,000 of the requested $5,500,000 to terminate the 
advanced light water reactor program and to not provide the 
requested $1,500,000 for management studies and evaluations.

                    environment, safety, and health

Appropriations, 1997....................................     $84,003,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     108,916,000
Committee recommendation................................      87,779,000

    The Committee recommendation includes $87,779,000 for 
environment safety, and health.
    The reduction results from the Committee's recommendation 
to shift $18,731,000 requested for health studies to the 
``Atomic energy defense, environment safety and health'' 
account as the Committee has done in previous years and to 
reduce the remaining amount of the request by $2,406,000.
    Line management support.--The Committee has provided 
$16,244,000 for line management support, the same amount as 
provided in fiscal year 1997 when a $4,500,000 adjustment is 
made to reflect the shift of the certification, packaging, and 
transportation of nuclear materials program from this account 
to the nondefense ``Environmental management'' account in 
fiscal year 1998.
    External regulation.--The Committee notes with interest the 
joint efforts by the Department of Energy and the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission to evaluate the costs and benefits of an 
independent regulatory entity overseeing certain DOE nuclear 
activities or facilities. In particular, the Committee 
understands that the NRC and the DOE are developing a small 
pilot program to test regulatory concepts for DOE nuclear 
activities or facilities and understands that this work will be 
performed under a reimbursable arrangement from the DOE to the 
NRC. The Committee recommends that the pilot program have the 
following objectives: to obtain sufficient information about a 
set of DOE nuclear activities or facilities to determine the 
value added if NRC had regulatory oversight of the activities 
or facilities; to evaluate alternative regulatory approaches to 
NRC regulation of DOE nuclear activities or facilities; to 
determine the status of a set of DOE facilities with respect to 
meeting existing NRC requirements, and to identify any 
significant safety issues; to identify potential issues 
associated with a transition to NRC oversight of DOE nuclear 
facilities; and to assess the costs (to NRC and DOE) associated 
with NRC regulation of DOE nuclear facilities. The Committee 
recommendation includes $1,000,000 for this purpose.
    Program direction.--The Committee recommendation for 
environment, safety, and health program direction is 
$45,835,000. The $350,000 reduction from the request is to be 
taken from the proposed travel budget resulting in a travel 
budget of $2,000,000, a $500,000 increase over the fiscal year 
1997 level.

                         magnetic fusion energy

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $232,337,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     225,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     240,000,000

    This Fiscal Year 1996 Energy and Water Development 
Appropriations Act provided $244,144,000, a reduction of 
$128,419,000 or 34 percent from the amount requested, for the 
magnetic fusion energy program. In the conference report 
accompanying the act, the conferees instructed the Department 
to prepare, with the participation of the Fusion Energy 
Advisory Committee, a strategic plan to implement the 
necessarily restructured program. The conferees directed that 
the plan should assume a constant level of funding in the base 
program for the next several years; as appropriate, it should 
be integrated with the plans of the international magnetic 
fusion program; and it should address the institutional makeup 
of a domestic program consistent with the funding assumptions.
    Last year, the Committee was impressed that, with the 
assistance of the Fusion Energy Advisory Committee, the 
Department was able to develop a balanced program consistent 
with the directions of the Committee. However, because of 
budget pressures, the Committee was able to recommend only 
$240,000,000. That amount was further reduced in conference 
with the House so that the final level provided for fiscal year 
1997 was $232,337,000.
    For fiscal year 1998, the Committee recommends $240,000,000 
for the magnetic fusion energy program. This amount will 
fulfill the Committee's commitment to provide level funding in 
light of the magnetic fusion community's successful effort to 
restructure the program. This amount includes $2,000,000 
transferred to the ``Magnetic fusion energy'' account from the 
``Nuclear energy'' account for advanced test reactor fusion 
irradiation.

                       energy support activities

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $110,300,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     112,220,000
Committee recommendation................................     111,993,000

    Energy support activities include the technical information 
management program, program direction, construction, and field 
office management. The Committee recommends $111,993,000, a 
reduction of $227,000 from the request.
    Technical information management.--The Committee recommends 
$2,200,000 for technical information management, $227,000 below 
the request and the same amount as provided in fiscal year 
1997.

                        environmental management

                              (nondefense)

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $591,711,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     684,684,000
Committee recommendation................................     664,684,000

    In previous years, nondefense environmental restoration and 
waste management and nuclear materials and facilities 
stabilization were included in the ``Energy supply, research, 
and development'' account.
    FUSRAP.--The reduction from the request is due to budget 
constraints, and the Committee recommends that it be taken from 
the Formerly Utilized Site Remediation Action Program [FUSRAP]. 
The Committee strongly supports FUSRAP and last year urged the 
Department to increase the request for FUSRAP. The Committee 
appreciates the Department's responsiveness in this regard; the 
budget request increases from $75,085,000 to $182,079,000, a 
142-percent increase. Unfortunately, budget constraints prevent 
the Committee from providing the full amount of the increase. 
The Committee recommendation includes $162,079,000 for the 
program, a 116-percent increase over fiscal year 1997.
    From within available funds, the Committee recommendation 
is to continue the support of the University Research Program 
in Robotics at $3,500,000.
    The Committee supports the multi-institution, multistate 
consortium known as the Integrated Petroleum Environmental 
Consortium [IPEC], and is especially encouraged with its level 
of research expertise and development of technology to address 
biological waste treatment and bioremediation. The Committee 
encourages the Department to fully support the initiative of 
this multi-institution consortium.
    These funds also support continued standby condition for 
the fast flux test facility to be evaluated as a possible 
backup option for tritium production.

      uranium enrichment decontamination and decommissioning fund

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $200,200,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     248,788,000
Committee recommendation................................     230,000,000

    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 severe budget constraints, the Committee 
recommendation includes a reduction of $18,788,000 from the 
budget request of $248,788,000.

                           nuclear waste fund

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $182,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     190,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     160,000,000

    The Committee has provided $350,000,000 for the civilian 
nuclear waste program; $160,000,000 derived from the nuclear 
waste fund and $190,000,000 derived from the ``Atomic energy 
defense'' account. These funds should be used to proceed in 
accordance with the Civilian Radioactive Waste Management Draft 
Program plan issued by the Department in May 1996. No later 
than September 30, 1998, the Secretary shall provide to the 
President and to the Congress a viability assessment of the 
Yucca Mountain site. The viability assessment shall include: 
the preliminary design for the critical elements for the 
repository and waste package; a total system performance 
assessment, based upon the design concept and the scientific 
data and analysis available on June 30, 1998, describing the 
probable behavior of the Yucca Mountain geologic setting 
relative to the overall system performance standards; a plan 
and cost estimate for the remaining work required to complete a 
license application; and an estimate of the costs to construct 
and operate the repository in accordance with the design.
    The Committee has provided $1,500,000 for the State of 
Nevada and $6,175,000 for affected local governments in 
accordance with statutory restrictions contained in the act.

                                science

Appropriations, 1997....................................  $2,239,517,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................   2,260,377,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,223,077,000

    The Committee has consolidated the Department's science 
programs, previously in energy supply research and development 
and general science and research, into a single ``Science'' 
account. Those programs are: high energy physics, nuclear 
physics, biological and environmental research, basic energy 
sciences, and other energy research.
    The Committee is concerned that the level of funding 
requested by the Department for science is inadequate to make 
full use of research facilities in which the Federal Government 
has made significant capitol investments. The Committee urges 
the Department, in preparing its fiscal year 1999 budget 
request, to more fully support the capabilities of new 
facilities, including support for laboratory completion and 
operating costs and for university researchers conducting 
experiments at these facilities.

                          high energy physics

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $670,075,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     675,035,000
Committee recommendation................................     675,035,000

    The Committee has provided the full amount of the request 
for high energy physics and strongly endorses U.S. 
participation in the large hadron collider.

                            nuclear physics

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $315,925,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     315,925,000
Committee recommendation................................     315,925,000

    The Committee has provided the full amount of the request 
for nuclear physics.
    The Committee understands that by providing an additional 
$3,000,000 in operating funds for the Thomas Jefferson National 
Laboratory such that its budget is $70,400,000 instead of the 
requested $67,400,000, the laboratory could operate for an 
additional 8 weeks in fiscal year 1998. The Committee 
encourages the Department to review its budget for nuclear 
physics and provide the additional funds if possible.

                 biological and environmental research

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $389,075,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     376,710,000
Committee recommendation................................     376,710,000

    The Committee has provided the full amount of the request 
for biological and environmental research, including $9,700,000 
for the National Institute for Global Environmental Change.
    The Committee has provided $3,930,266, an increase of 
$730,266 over the current year, to continue the nuclear 
medicine research program in biological imaging at the 
University of California Los Angeles. Also, at the University 
of Nevada Las Vegas, $300,000 is recommended to establish a 
biological and environmental research genetic biodiversity 
laboratory and $150,000 to study indoor air quality.
    The Committee notes that the Albert Einstein Medical Center 
in Philadelphia, PA, is establishing a new women's cancer 
center as a focal point of care for its own patients and those 
of community hospitals by introducing new technologies and 
promoting and facilitating biomedical research. The Committee 
further notes that the Einstein Center is located in an area 
with nearly twice the national proportion of households with 
incomes under $15,000 per year and that cancer is a particular 
problem for the poor, who often neglect their health for 
financial reasons. The Committee directs the Department to 
consider a proposal from the Einstein Center for a research and 
health care delivery project to determine whether it meets the 
objective of using the Department's unique scientific and 
technical capabilities to solve major problems in medicine and 
biology.

                         basic energy sciences

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $649,348,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     668,240,000
Committee recommendation................................     668,240,000

    The Committee has included the amount of the budget request 
for basic energy sciences.
    EPSCoR.--The Committee recommendation includes $10,000,000 
to continue the Department's Experimental Program to Stimulate 
Competitive Research [EPSCoR] Program. Also, the Midwest 
superconductivity consortium is continued at the current level.

                     other energy research programs

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $205,094,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     229,267,000
Committee recommendation................................     212,167,000

    Other energy research programs such as energy research 
analysis, laboratory technology transfer, advisory and 
oversight, multiprogram energy laboratory support, and program 
direction are funded in this section.
    University and science education.--The Department of Energy 
through its national laboratories and sites has unique physical 
and intellectual resources available to support the Nation's 
efforts to prepare the next generation of scientists and 
engineers by improving teaching and learning in science, 
technology, engineering, and math at all levels. The Committee 
regrets the elimination last year of the university and science 
education program and has provided $10,000,000 to reinstate it. 
The Department is directed to focus its educational efforts on 
two areas in fiscal year 1998: expanding undergraduate and 
faculty research opportunities through programs such as the 
successful University Lab Cooperative Program; and reinstating 
programs to support minority institutional development, in 
particular, the Minority Technical Education Program.
    Next-generation internet.--The Committee has not provided 
the $25,000,000 requested for the Department's participation in 
the next-generation internet. The Committee concurs with the 
Department's finding that increased internet capabilities would 
facilitate broader use of and benefit from the Department's 
scientific user facilities. However, given the rapid rate of 
commercial internet technology development, the Committee 
concludes it is unnecessary for the Department to fund the 
development of enabling technologies to meet its internet 
requirements.
    Computational and technology research.--The Committee 
recommendation for other energy research programs includes 
$760,000 for computing equipment at the Institute for 
Computational Chemistry and Molecular Modeling at the 
University of Georgia.
    Program direction.--The Committee has provided $28,500,000 
for program direction, the same as the amount provided in 
fiscal year 1997 and $2,100,000 less than the request.

                      Departmental Administration

                                (gross)

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $215,021,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     232,604,000
Committee recommendation................................     220,847,000

                        (miscellaneous revenues)

Revenues, 1997..........................................    $125,388,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     131,330,000
Committee recommendation................................     131,330,000

    For fiscal year 1997, the Congress reduced funding for 
departmental administration by 9 percent and is generally 
pleased with the Department's implementation of the reduction. 
However, during the reduction, the Department maintained the 
number of full-time equivalents [FTE's] in the Office of 
General Counsel and increased the number of FTE's in the Office 
of the Secretary. In order to return the number of FTE's in the 
Office of the Secretary to the 1996 level, the Committee has 
provided $2,500,000, $500,000 more than was provided in fiscal 
year 1997 but $350,000 less than the request, for the Office of 
the Secretary. Within general management--personnel 
compensation and benefits, the Committee has provided 
$13,950,000 for salary and benefits for the Office of General 
Counsel and expects the Secretary to reduce the number of FTE's 
in the Office to 150 instead of increase it to 170 as 
requested. In accordance with a budget amendment submitted by 
the Department, of the amount provided for other expenses 
within Departmental Administration, $1,623,000 is available for 
salaries and expenses in the Office of the Secretary in order 
to pay the salaries and expenses of employees otherwise on 
detail to the Office of the Secretary.

                           inspector general

Appropriations, 1997....................................     $23,853,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................      29,499,000
Committee recommendation................................      27,500,000

    The Committee has provided $27,500,000, $1,999,000 less 
than the request, for the Office of the Inspector General. The 
Committee is aware that, by utilizing unobligated balances, the 
Office of the Inspector General has maintained total program 
costs of $28,000,000 and $28,600,000 for the previous 2 years. 
Due to budget constraints, the Office will have to reduce its 
total program costs in fiscal year 1998.

                         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 four separate 
appropriation accounts: weapons activities; defense 
environmental restoration and waste management; other defense 
programs; and defense nuclear waste disposal. Descriptions of 
each of these accounts are provided below.

                           Weapons Activities

Appropriations, 1997....................................  $3,911,198,000
Budget estimate, 1998..................................\1\ 3,576,255,000
Committee recommendation...............................\2\ 4,302,450,000

\1\ Excludes funding requested for asset acquisitions.
\2\ Reflects incremental funding for asset acquisition projects.

    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 the Department of Energy may be insufficient to 
sustain important stockpile stewardship and management 
initiatives, such as the national ignition facility; a new 
tritium source; critical diagnostic tools; and a production 
infrastructure supporting a START II stockpile with the 
capability of returning to START I levels, while at the same 
time allowing the Nation's nuclear weapons laboratories to 
certify the safety and reliability of the weapons in the 
stockpile. The Committee believes that the issue of sufficient 
resources to ensure the certification of the weapons stockpile 
safety and reliability is of such importance it requires the 
immediate attention of the Department of Defense, the 
Department of Energy, the National Security Council, and the 
President. The capability of the national laboratories to 
provide the certification required by the President must not be 
allowed to erode in future years.
    The Committee's recommendation for weapons activities is 
$4,302,450,000, an increase of $391,252,000 over the enacted 
funding level for fiscal year 1997. While this is a sizable 
increase over last year, it is still well short of the amount 
that those require to certify the safety and reliability of the 
stockpile feel is adequate to fulfill their responsibility. 
Details of the recommended funding levels follow.

                         stockpile stewardship

    An appropriation of $1,925,900,000 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 $1,333,290,000 for core stockpile stewardship base 
operating programs. This is $175,000,000 more than the budget 
request.
    The Committee is concerned that the funding level proposed 
for fiscal year 1998 and future budget planning projections of 
the Department of Energy may not be 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.
    The Committee recommendation includes an additional 
$50,000,000 for the Core Research and Advanced Technology 
Program. This program provides the science and technology 
infrastructure needed to support DOE's defense mission. 
Emphasis is placed on those research and technology development 
activities necessary to maintain and improve the understanding 
of the underpinning science of complex nuclear weapons systems 
and subsystems and to advance the enabling technologies used in 
weapon assessment, engineering, certification, surveillance, 
and disposal. This program sustains the DOE defense core 
competencies and core technologies which provide the principal 
opportunities for assistance in advanced manufacturing.
    The Committee is aware of the significant scientific 
advancements made over the past year on the Z-accelerator at 
Sandia National Laboratory. Major increases in energy and 
temperature production enhance prospects that pulsed power may 
contribute in a significant way to both weapons and energy 
applications. Much has been accomplished, but more remains to 
be done to enhance the maturity of the technology. Therefore, 
DOE is urged to develop a scientific and technical contract, 
including milestones and deliverables, in order to guide and 
assess the future progress of the pulsed power program.
    The Committee increase places emphasis on critical core 
activities such as advanced hydrodynamic radiography, advanced 
manufacturing components and technologies, electronics, 
photonics, and microelectronic. The Department is to continue 
to emphasize and advance activities related to an advanced 
hydrodynamic test facility. Additional funding is also provided 
for chemistry and material science technology.
    Up to $30,000,000 is provided to develop an in-house, 
contingent source of radiation hardened microelectronics. It is 
not the Committee's preference that the Department supply its 
own radiation hardened microelectronics. To the contrary, the 
Committee would prefer that the private sector be positioned to 
supply radiation hardened microelectronics; an essential 
component for a variety of Department of Energy applications. 
However, in recent years, 13 of 15 radiation hardened 
microelectronics suppliers have left the business, and the 
remaining 2 face an uncertain future. Given the importance of 
these components, the Committee directs the Department to 
develop a capability, should it be necessary, to rapidly 
transfer production capability to private sector vendors to 
produce radiation hardened microelectronics.
    An increase of $25,000,000 is included 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. 
Additional funding is recommended to support code development 
and simulation, for additional physics modeling, and other 
essential activities.
    An additional $10,000,000 is recommended to enhance 
nonnuclear component assessment and experimental activities.
    Consistent with Senate authorizing committee action, no 
funding is included for the Greenville Road project.
    Landmine remediation.--The problem of abandoned 
antipersonnel landmines has reached crisis proportions with 
more than 30,000 people killed or seriously injured by these 
abandoned weapons each year. The national laboratories of the 
Department of Energy have developed a cooperative effort to 
accelerate their technical contributions to this important 
endeavor. New technologies have been developed which have the 
potential of detection, localization, and discrimination of 
both metallic and nonmetallic antipersonnel landmines. A test 
and evaluation facility at the Nevada test site provides a 
unique environment to field test and evaluate performance of 
the technologies. The Committee directs the Department of 
Energy to use such funds as are available within the stockpile 
stewardship for operation of this testing facility and for 
further technology development for detecting, locating, and 
removing the threat of abandoned landmines.
    Testing capabilities and readiness.--An appropriation of 
$187,002,000 is recommended for testing capabilities and 
readiness activities. The Committee is concerned that 
insufficient resources and emphasis is being given to the 
Testing Capability and Readiness Program. 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. It should be pointed out that DOE's budget document 
made it clear that the decrease proposed in the budget for 
fiscal year 1998 may impact test readiness activities.
    The additional funds recommended will protect the Nation's 
ability to return to underground testing, if required; execute 
the planned subcritical experiments for fiscal year 1998; and 
adequately plan for future experiments, and conduct the 
required number of hydrodynamic experiments.
    Infrastructure and capital equipment.--The three weapons 
laboratories and the Nevada test site will continue to form the 
foundation upon which the science-based stewardship program is 
built and from which many capabilities to support other 
critical work will originate. However, the institutional 
infrastructure of the laboratories cannot be ignored if their 
longer-term vitality is to be maintained. Therefore, the 
Committee has included an additional $50,000,000 to reduce the 
backlog of deferred maintenance and for facility refurbishment; 
and $10,000,000 to address the capital equipment needs at the 
laboratories and Nevada test site.
    Construction projects.--An appropriation of $98,810,000 is 
recommended for construction projects under core stockpile 
stewardship activities for fiscal year 1998. The Committee 
action does not concur with the budget proposal to fully fund 
DOE's stockpile stewardship construction projects in a 
consolidated ``Defense asset acquisition'' account. The 
incremental funding amount has been included by the Committee.
    Inertial confinement fusion [ICF].--An appropriation of 
$227,000,000 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.
    Recognizing the increased value of the Inertial Confinement 
Fusion Program to Stockpile Stewardship and Management, the 
Committee has recommended an increase of $10,000,000 to better 
exploit the capabilities of the Omega and Nova lasers as well 
as other assets for the stockpile stewardship program.
    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 
to supporting weapons effects testing. An appropriation of 
$197,800,000, the full amount needed in fiscal year 1998, is 
recommended for the NIF project. Funding is provided to 
complete the project design and initiate construction.
    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 1998 to support ongoing 
cooperative research and development agreements, including 
AMTEX; and education activities.

                          stockpile management

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $2,108,050,000 
for stockpile management activities. This is $164,219,000 over 
the current year appropriation.
    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.
    The Committee understands that recent risk reduction 
analysis has indicated the need for additional funding in 
fiscal year 1998 to support near-term workload activities in 
support of the W-87 program and to provide capability in 
preparation of expected future stockpile life extension 
activities. Therefore, an increase of $25,000,000 is 
recommended in the Stockpile Life Extension Program for fiscal 
year 1998.
    Joint development of manufacturing technologies with the 
labs is an integral part of the effort needed to help determine 
when aging concerns justify refurbishment or remanufacturing. 
The production plants need new and more efficient means to 
manufacture components in a fashion consistent with the 
existing nuclear test data base, and advanced manufacturing 
technologies to save costs by reducing the number and 
complexity of the integral manufacturing process steps as well 
as to monitor product quality. An additional $10,000,000 is 
provided to support these efforts.
    An additional $10,000,000 is recommended for activities 
related to DOE's environmental surety program. The additional 
funding is to focus on waste minimization activities within the 
complex to ensure the weapons complex of the future reduces 
waste streams in meeting defense requirements.
    An additional $15,000,000 is recommended to sustain the 
modernization of the weapons complex begun last year, and for 
more efficient and effective manufacturing and infrastructure 
needs of the weapon production plants. It is critical that the 
evaluation, surveillance, maintenance, repair, and 
dismantlement capabilities in the production complex be 
maintained; along with improving the manufacturing technologies 
needed to support the stockpile. In addition, these funds are 
intended to address aging processing equipment, information 
system upgrades, and funding deficits for ongoing production 
activities. The Committee expects that the additional funding 
will be allocated equitably across the production plants and 
with recognition that the weapons laboratories must be involved 
in this effort.
    The Committee recommendation includes $8,000,000 in 
operating funds for the Department to continue upgrades to the 
existing tritium recycling facility begun in fiscal year 1997.
    The Department is directed to explore ways to utilize the 
device assembly facility at Nevada in training and other 
activities associated with nonproliferation and terrorist 
programs consistent with other weapons activities and 
requirements.
    Tritium source.--An appropriation of $184,485,000 is 
recommended for activities related to providing a new tritium 
source. This amount is $34,485,000 over the current year and 
the same as the budget request. 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 requirements dictate. The 
Committee continues to support the dual-track program being 
developed by the Department.
    Infrastructure and capital equipment.--The four production 
plants will continue to perform the production mission into the 
future. However, the institutional infrastructure of the plants 
cannot be ignored if their longer-term vitality is to be 
maintained. Therefore, the Committee has included an additional 
$40,000,000 to reduce the backlog of deferred maintenance and 
for facility refurbishment and to address critical capital 
equipment needs.
    Construction projects.--An appropriation of $171,585,000 is 
recommended for line item construction projects under core 
stockpile management for fiscal year 1998. The Committee action 
does not concur with the budget proposal to fully fund DOE's 
stockpile management construction projects in a consolidated 
``Defense asset acquisition'' account. The incremental funding 
amount for fiscal year 1998 has been included by the Committee.

                           program direction

    An appropriation of $268,500,000 is recommended for program 
direction activities. This is a reduction of $35,000,000 below 
the budget request and reflects the recommendations of the 
Institute for Defense Analysis on how best to streamline the 
management structure of DOE's Office of Defense Programs. The 
Committee recommendation includes $9,250,000 for the community 
assistance program at Los Alamos, which is 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.

    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. Environmental management activities of the 
Department of Energy are budgeted under three appropriation 
accounts: defense environmental restoration and waste 
management; energy supply, research, and development; and the 
uranium enrichment decontamination and decommissioning fund.
    This ``Defense environmental restoration and waste 
management'' account includes waste management functions, 
environmental restoration activities, science and technology 
activities, nuclear materials and facilities stabilization 
functions, and a variety of other crosscutting and program 
support activities, such as policy and management, analysis, 
and education and risk management.
    The recommended funding for defense environmental 
restoration and waste management, excluding the privatization 
initiative is $5,311,974,000.
    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 costs growth on many projects, and 
resulted in moving the program from the study phase to the 
cleanup of facilities. Yet, the Committee feels that additional 
funding is warranted and that it is critical to future program 
success to have a stable and predictable stream of funding. The 
Committee believes that the program recommended for fiscal year 
1998 is within the acceptable range and will meet all legal 
requirements and other agreements.
    As stated last year, budget constraints will continue to 
check future 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, including 
reductions in headquarters staffing. The Department should 
continue the critical review of the need and requirement for 
each individual support service contract, duplicative and 
overlapping organizational arrangements, and employees 
performing functions which duplicate other headquarters 
functions.
    The Committee is concerned about the high cost of disposing 
of low-level waste and mixed low-level waste from Department of 
Energy sites. The Committee directs the Department to conduct 
competitive procurements among non-Federal entities for the 
disposal of its low-level waste and/or mixed low-level waste. 
The Committee recommends that those procurements allow for the 
evaluation of alternative regulatory structures allowed under 
the Atomic Energy Act.
    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 maintaining 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. Therefore, in prioritizing spending 
for environmental management work, the Secretary should 
continue to give special attention to those specific facilities 
which offer the opportunity to accelerate closure thereby 
reducing significantly out-year costs.

                       environmental restoration

    An appropriation of $1,762,073,000 is recommended for 
environmental restoration programs, an increase of $17,500,000 
over the budget request for fiscal year 1998. The Environmental 
Restoration Program conducts cleanup activities to stabilize 
radioactive waste, carries out remediation efforts, and 
performs decommissioning and decontamination work at 
contaminated DOE sites. Other activities include performing 
assessments and characterizations to determine potential 
radioactive and hazardous waste releases and to reduce and 
remove the potential risks to the environment, human health, 
and safety resulting from past defense-related Department 
activities.
    The Committee has provided an additional $17,500,000 for 
the Department to undertake accelerate efforts to reduce 
growing landlord costs as discussed earlier in this report, to 
meet current commitments, and to address high priority removal 
and remedial actions at various sites including the Savannah 
River site, Rocky Flats, and the Fernald site. The Committee 
directs that increased funding be applied to those specific 
activities and sites where remediation can occurs.

                            Closure Projects

    The Committee is concerned with the way the Department 
allocated and managed the funding provided for closure projects 
in fiscal year 1997. Instead of allocating additional funding 
to specific projects with a high likelihood of accelerating the 
reduction of landlord and mortgage cost, the funding was 
essentially provided to the sites on a proportional basis 
thereby reducing the effectiveness and potential savings of the 
closure initiative.
    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. Since this is not a new initiative or concept 
to the Department, the Committee expects that clear selection 
guidelines based on maximizing the return on investment from 
specific, individual projects be put in place at the earliest 
possible time in order that the recommended funding can be 
effectively utilized. The Committee has included $65,000,000 
for DOE to carry out this program. Sites such as Savannah 
River, Hanford, Rocky Flats, and Oak Ridge would each have the 
opportunity to propose specific projects to be accomplished 
under this program.

                            waste management

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $1,571,644,000 
for the Waste Management Program, including $1,490,876,000 in 
operating expenses. The Waste Management Program seeks to 
protect the public and workers by seeking to minimize, treat, 
store, and dispose of radioactive, hazardous, mixed, and 
sanitary waste generated by past and ongoing operations at DOE 
facilities.
    The Committee continues to be concerned with the approach 
taken by DOE in development of the fiscal year 1998 budget 
request for waste management activities, specifically the 
reductions required in ongoing program activities such as 
reducing large mortgages, safety and compliance monitoring, 
cleanup of surface contamination, and tank monitoring upgrades 
and maintenance at Hanford tank farms, in order to undertake 
DOE's new environmental management privatization initiative.
    The Committee recommendation provides significant 
additional resources to continue critical ongoing activities in 
an effort to mitigate the impact of proposed budget reductions 
for fiscal year 1998. Stable and predictable funding levels for 
ongoing cleanup work are essential in order to sustain the 
excellent progress being made.
    The Committee has recommended additional appropriations for 
the ``Waste management'' account in order to bring the 
operation funding back up closer to the current year level. The 
recommendation includes additional funding to support increased 
operations at the defense waste processing facility [DWPF], 
high level waste research and development work, tank farm 
characterization and retrieval, and the consolidated 
incineration facility consistent with the authorized level in 
the Senate.
    Funding has been provided under environment, safety and 
health in other defense programs to complete the Hanford 
thyroid study.
    Construction projects.--An amount of $80,768,000 is 
provided for waste management construction activities for 
fiscal year 1998. This reflects the incremental funding level 
for construction projects which were requesting in the 
``Defense asset acquisition'' account proposed in the fiscal 
year 1998 budget request. The Committee recommendation does not 
concur with a separate acquisition account.

             nuclear materials and facilities stabilization

    The Committee recommendation for nuclear material and 
facility stabilization is $1,266,021,000. The Nuclear Material 
and Facility Stabilization Program reflects the change in the 
Department's mission from production of nuclear weapons to the 
cleanup of the former production complex. The activities of 
this program reduce the level of potential risk to people and 
the environment and drive down the cost of maintaining surplus 
facilities. Nuclear material and facility stabilization 
activities that reduce risk include stabilizing nuclear 
materials and deactivating surplus production facilities. As 
stabilization and deactivation work is completed, the cost of 
implementing other environmental management activities should 
decrease.
    The recommendation includes an increase of $63,000,000 in 
operating expenses for nuclear material and facility 
stabilization activities. The Committee recommendation supports 
continuation of the National Spent Fuel Program, and nuclear 
materials stabilization and site operations at Savannah River F 
and H Canyons consistent with the authorization.

                         technology development

    The Committee recommendation for technology development 
activities is $232,881,000, a reduction of $25,000,000 below 
the budget request.
    The mission of the Office of Technology Development is to 
develop new technologies or improve existing technologies that 
reduce risks and the cost of cleanup at the Department's 
facilities and contaminated areas. The Committee again states 
its belief that advanced technology development is key to a 
successful restoration and waste management program, and to 
significantly reducing costs.
    However, the Committee has serious concern with the 
Department's efforts to develop appropriate and effective 
technologies to facilitate the cleanup of the legacy of past 
nuclear weapon production activities. A recent analysis by the 
Congressional Research Service [CRS] indicated that about 
$2,000,000,000 has been provided to the DOE Environmental 
Management Program for technology development. CRS found that 
with this funding DOE had ``funded 1,370 different technology 
projects and that 50 of those have been deployed or used for 
actual cleanup work. Another 12 technologies have been selected 
for deployment. DOE statistics list about 100 additional 
technologies that may be deployed.'' The analysis further 
indicated that the nearly $2,000,000,000 investment had 
resulted in approximately $309,000,000 in life-cycle cost 
savings. With this level of return on investment, it is clear 
to the Committee that changes need to be made in the 
management, execution, and oversight of the Technology 
Development Program.
    In light of this situation, the Committee has recommended a 
$25,000,000 reduction for fiscal year 1998. The funding level 
recommended supports technology development and the technology 
deployment initiative at lower levels. The Department is to 
provide a report to the Committee, at the earliest possible 
time after enactment, which lays out the actions and steps 
needed to improve the results to this program.
    The Committee is informed of the on-site asbestos 
conversion/recycling unit at Hanford and the successful outcome 
of the unit's demonstration. The Committee understands that the 
Hanford technology shows promise as a safe alternative to 
landfill disposal of asbestos containing material. Therefore, 
the Committee urges the Secretary to take steps to upgrade the 
unit to operate at full capacity and potential, if appropriate. 
In taking this action, the Committee expects the Department to 
review asbestos disposal needs across DOE and to ensure this 
technology is allowed to compete with other options to meet 
disposal needs with the goal of reducing the overall costs as 
much as possible.
    The Committee is aware of the work carried out under the 
Department's Environmental Management Program in cooperation 
with university-based researchers who have developed advanced 
monitoring equipment, including instruments for use in 
verifying the content of plutonium in waste forms and systems 
to extend the useful life of melters used to convert DOE waste 
to glass. The Committee supports these efforts and directs the 
Department to continue its support for efforts that will lead 
to cost effective, nonbiased, flexible testing of environmental 
technologies.

                         Policy and Management

    The Committee recommendation provides an appropriation of 
$18,104,000, a reduction of $5,000,000 below the budget 
request, for policy and management activities. The Committee 
continues to have concern about the overlap and duplication of 
responsibilities between the Policy Office and other 
environmental management organizations.

                     Environmental Science Program

    A total of $50,000,000 is included for the Environmental 
Science Program. This is the same as the budget request. The 
goal of this program is to strengthen the Department's 
environmental management basic science activities through a 
competitive process between DOE's national laboratories, 
academic, and industrial organizations. This program was 
initiated by Congress in fiscal year 1996 in response to the 
Galvin Commission report.

                 Environmental Management Privatization

    An appropriation of $343,000,000 is recommended for the 
environmental management privatization initiative. The 
Committee action is taken without prejudice, but in recognition 
that the new privatization concept has yet to be proven 
effective.
    Based upon the Committee's analysis, the amount recommended 
is sufficient to meet the Department's privatization 
requirements.
    While recommending sizable reductions in the Department's 
privatization initiative, the Committee believes that such an 
approach may have application in some cases, particularly 
projects that are more traditional in scope and complexity, and 
ones that are not heavily dependent upon scientific and 
technological advances for success.
    Yet serious questions and issues remain to be addressed if 
DOE's privatization program, as currently structured, is to be 
successful. Management, regulatory, and budget issues, to name 
a few, must be overcome. The Department and those in the 
Environmental Management Program are to be commended for the 
hard work and effort to find a solution the cleaning up the 
waste left from decades of cold war weapons production. The 
environmental restoration and management is one of the biggest 
challenges facing this county. The Committee expects the 
Department to continue to work cooperatively with the 
legislative branch in an effort to move the program forward, 
and to provide periodic updates on those steps and actions 
takes to address the major issues and strengthen the 
Environmental Restoration and Waste Management Program.
    The Committee notes that the tank waste remediation system 
[TWRS] privatization project is a critical element of the 
cleanup program at the Hanford site. Adequately treating and 
disposing of the high-level nuclear waste in Hanford's 177 
underground storage tanks is an essential cleanup priority. 
While reductions in the fiscal year 1998 request for the TWRS 
project have been recommended, the Committee supports the 
privatization of cleanup activities. The Committee feels that 
the funding proposed should be sufficient for TWRS to proceed 
in fiscal year 1998.
    The Committee also recognizes the importance of treating or 
removing waste in silo three at Fernald, OH. The Committee 
recommends that a portion of the funds provided should be used 
to treat or remove that waste.

                           Program Direction

    The Committee recommendation for program direction totals 
$373,251,000, which is $15,000,000 below the budget request. 
The amount recommended is consistent with that provided by the 
authorizing committee in the Senate. Program direction provides 
the overall direction and administrative support for the 
environmental management programs of the Department of Energy.

                       Use of prior year balances

    The Committee has included a $20,000,000 reduction from 
prior year balances from the ``Defense environmental 
restoration and waste management'' account for fiscal year 
1998.

                        Fixed Asset Acquisition

    The budget proposed a new account to consolidate several 
capital construction project and requested funding to cover the 
full cost of those projects. The Committee dose not concur with 
this approach. The recommendation put forth by the Committee 
provides the incremental portion for each project.

                        recommendation summaries

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

                        Other Defense Activities

\1\ Excludes funding requested for asset acquisition.
\2\ Reflects incremental funding for asset acquisition

    An appropriation of $1,637,981,000 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 $478,200,000. 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 
$444,600,000. 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 initiatives to reduce the 
danger of nuclear smuggling and the associated nuclear 
terrorism threat.
    The recommendation provides an additional $137,008,000 over 
the current level, which is 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.
    Intelligence.--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 recommendation totals $33,600,000, the same 
as the budget request.
    Emergency management.--The Committee has provided 
$27,700,000 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 the departmental operations and activities or 
requiring departmental assistance. The amount recommended by 
the Committee supports increased emphasis to plan and conduct 
realistic exercises to prepare Federal, State, and local 
organizations to work effectively in response to domestic 
terrorism and the use of existing national assets such as the 
Nevada test site to train Federal, State, and local first 
responders as part of domestic emergency response program.
    Nuclear safeguards and security.--This 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 
Department-wide. The Committee concurs with the budget request 
of $47,200,000.
    Security investigations.--This 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 $20,000,000 is recommended by the 
Committee. This is the same as the budget request.

               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 
$74,000,000, a $20,000,000 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. Included in 
the amount recommended is $2,000,000 for the Hanford thyroid 
study. The Committee understands that the study will be 
completed in fiscal year 1998 with the funds recommended.

               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 $62,000,000, the same as the amount 
provided for the current fiscal year.
    The Committee recognizes the efforts of the city of Paducah 
and the surrounding western Kentucky communities to establish a 
community reuse organization [CRO]. This organization is 
charged with developing a regional economic plan to minimize 
possible work force reductions at the Department of Energy's 
gaseous diffusion plant in Paducah. The Committee directs the 
Department of Energy to support the establishment of the CRO 
and participate in the development of a strategic plan for the 
diversification of the regional economy.

               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 $95,796,000, which is $9,000,000 
over the comparable level for the current level.

                        Nuclear Energy (Defense)

    An appropriation of $81,000,000 is recommended by the 
Committee for international nuclear safety and nuclear security 
programs of DOE. This is the same as the budget request.
    Nuclear energy (defense) supports development of 
technologies to address issues associated with long-term 
operation of nuclear powerplants, and to reduce the national 
security and environmental threats posed by the operation of 
unsafe and aging nuclear facilities around the world. 
Particular attention is given to improving the safety of 
Soviet-designed nuclear powerplants, threats posed by 
reprocessing of spent fuel in Russia and the former Soviet 
Union states, and spent fuel management activities that 
minimize the risks of proliferation of weapons-usable nuclear 
material.

                             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 $660,500,000.
    The Committee recommendation includes an additional 
$20,000,000 to continue inactivation and dismantlement of 
shutdown prototype naval reactor plants at DOE naval nuclear 
propulsion sites.

                        RECOMMENDATION SUMMARIES

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

                     Defense Nuclear Waste Disposal

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $200,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     190,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     190,000,000

    The Committee recommends $190,000,000 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 1994, the balance owed by the 
Federal Government to the nuclear waste fund was $1,071,000,000 
(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 
fund.

                    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, 1997....................................      $4,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................       1,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      23,500,000

    The Alaska Power Administration [APA] is responsible for 
operation, maintenance, and marketing of power for Alaska's two 
Federal hydroelectric projects. The operating projects are the 
30-megawatt Eklutna project near Anchorage and the 78-megawatt 
Snettisham project near Juneau. Project facilities include 
dams, reservoirs, powerplants, transmission systems, and 
necessary maintenance facilities.
    Public Law 104-58 authorizes the sale of the APA assets. 
The Snettisham project will be sold to the State of Alaska and 
Eklutna project to the three current power customers: Municipal 
Light & Power, Chugach Electric Association, Inc., and 
Matanuska Electric Association, Inc. The Department and the APA 
expect to complete sale of the Eklutna project by November 28, 
1997, and of the Snettisham project by December 31, 1997.
    The Department has requested, and the Committee has 
provided, $1,000,000 to meet obligations that may be incurred 
prior to the sales. Any unobligated balances resulting from 
that appropriation will be returned to the Treasury of the 
United States upon the sale of the APA.
    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, in addition to the 
$1,000,000 requested, the Committee has provided an additional 
$2,500,000; the estimated cost of replacing a single 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.
    The Committee has allocated $20,000,000 for the Swan Lake-
Lake Tyee Intertie project to promote the economic self-
sufficiency of the community of Wrangell, Peterburg, and 
Ketchikan, AK, which are recovering from the economic disaster 
attributed to lost timber sales income.

                  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 $253,000,000 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 $805,000,000, of which $205,000,000 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.
    Cost control.--The Committee commends BPA for its actions 
in the last 3 years to reduce spending by approximately 
$600,000,000 annually and to reduce staffing by 1,000 
positions. The Committee believes there is an opportunity to 
further reduce costs. The Committee understands that BPA and 
the Northwest Governor's Regional Review Transition Board are 
reviewing BPA's budget in order to recommend ways for BPA to 
further control discretionary programs costs. The Committee 
supports the efforts of BPA to aggressively review costs to 
assure that limited ratepayer dollars are prudently spent. In 
order to keep pace with a competitive wholesale power market, 
discretionary program expenditures that require ratepayers to 
assume financial risk must be carefully reviewed by BPA to 
determine where additional reductions can be made to minimize 
the potential for stranded cost and to at least achieve BPA's 
goal of 2 cents in 2000. Concurrent with this review, BPA 
staffing levels should continue to be reviewed and adjusted to 
match changing program needs. The Committee directs that BPA 
and the transition board provide a report to the Committee by 
March 1, 1998, identifying specific recommendations for cost 
reductions in all discretionary spending for which BPA is 
responsible.
    Fish and wildlife agreement.--Last fall, four cabinet level 
Secretaries (Energy, Commerce, Interior, and the Army) signed a 
memorandum of agreement which committed Bonneville to a fixed 
budget for its fish and wildlife expenditures for fiscal years 
1996 through 2001 that will provide $252,000,000 per year in 
program funding, plus $90,000,000 to $280,000,000 per year for 
hydrosystem operating expenditures on fish and wildlife 
projects, reimbursement to other Federal agencies and the 
Federal Treasury, the cost of purchase replacement power, and 
forgone hydrosystem revenues. In fiscal year 1998, the direct 
expenditure portion of the budget is expected to be 
$127,000,000. The Administrator shall use the funding available 
under the direct program portion of the fish and wildlife 
budget during fiscal year 1998 first to fund those measures, 
including reasonable and prudent alternatives, that are 
identified as mandatory Bonneville responsibilities for that 
fiscal year pursuant to the biological opinions on salmon and 
sturgeon issued in 1995 under the Endangered Species Act. The 
remainder of the funding available under the direct program 
portion shall be used in a manner consistent with the Northwest 
Power Planning Council's Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife 
Program and section 4(h)(10)(D) of the Northwest Power Planning 
and Conservation Act.
    Independent scientific review panel.--The Committee 
understands that the Northwest Power Planning Council's 
Independent Scientific Advisory Review Panel, created by the 
Fiscal Year 1997 Energy and Water Development Act, has 
carefully reviewed proposals for funding from BPA's annual fish 
and wildlife program. The Committee urges the ISRP to continue 
its aggressive, independent review of projects proposed for 
funding to ensure that Northwest ratepayer dollars are spent 
wisely and to maximum benefit of regional fish and wildlife 
populations.
    Hatchery review report.--Due to budgetary constraints it is 
critical that federally funded programs, such as the hatchery 
programs for the Columbia River basin, spend limited Federal 
dollars wisely and in a cost-effective manner that maximizes 
the benefits to the fish resource. The Committee directs the 
Northwest Power Planning Council with assistance from its 
independent Scientific Advisory Board to conduct a thorough 
review of all federally funded hatchery programs operating in 
the Columbia River basin, including an assessment of the 
hatchery operation goals and principles of State, tribal, and 
Federal hatcheries, and produce a formal recommendation for a 
coordinated policy for the future operation of federally funded 
hatcheries in the basin and how to obtain such a coordinated 
policy. National Marine Fisheries and the States of Oregon, 
Washington, and Idaho and Indian tribes in the basin should 
assist the Council in its review by providing information 
necessary to conduct a thorough review of federally funded 
hatchery programs. An independent, comprehensive review that 
examines all federally funded hatcheries and their roles in 
fishery restoration is long overdue, and the Committee directs 
the Northwest Power Planning Council, to provide a final report 
to the Committee on the subject by October 1998. The Committee 
directs BPA to provide the necessary funding based on the 
Council's scope of work for the hatchery review.

      operation and maintenance, southeastern power administration

Appropriations, 1997....................................     $16,359,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................      14,222,000
Committee recommendation................................      12,222,000

    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, 1997....................................     $25,210,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................      26,500,000
Committee recommendation................................      26,500,000

    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.

                          power administration

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $182,230,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     194,334,000
Committee recommendation................................     180,334,000

    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 Committee recommendation for Western for fiscal year 
1998 is $180,334,000, a decrease of $14,000,000 from the budget 
request of $194,334,000.
    The amount to be deposited in the ``Utah reclamation 
mitigation and conservation'' account is $5,592,000, 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 $1,065,000, the same as the 
budget request.

    The Committee recommendation provides $162,141,000 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.
    The Committee recommends that the FERC give high priority 
to the renewal of hydroelectric licenses for which there are 
competing applications. In particular, the Committee urges the

  Committee recommendation to combine certain functions of the Office of Energy Research with General Science   
  and Research in a new account, General Science and Other Research Activities, and to create a separate account
  for Non-Defense Environmental Management.                                                                     

                     TITLE IV--INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

                    Appalachian Regional Commission

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $160,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     165,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     160,000,000

    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 $160,000,000, which is the same as the 
current fiscal year. An appropriation of $99,500,000 is 
recommended for ARC highways.

                Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board

                         salaries and expenses

Appropriations, 1997....................................     $16,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................      17,500,000
Committee recommendation................................      17,500,000

    An appropriation of $17,500,000 is recommended for fiscal 
year 1998. 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.

                     Nuclear Regulatory Commission

                         salaries and expenses

                          gross appropriation

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $471,800,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     476,500,000
Committee recommendation................................     476,500,000

                                revenues

Appropriations, 1997....................................    $457,300,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     457,500,000
Committee recommendation................................     457,500,000

                           net appropriation

Appropriations, 1997....................................     $14,500,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................      19,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      19,000,000

    The Omnibus 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.
    The Committee encourages the NRC to continue to give 
special attention to replacing unnecessary prescriptive 
requirements and guidance with performance-based requirements 
and guidance. The Committee believes that a performance-based 
regulatory approach can substantially improve the regulatory 
process and result in a more effective and efficient use of 
both the NRC and licensee resources.

                      Office of Inspector General

                          gross appropriation

Appropriations, 1997....................................      $5,000,000
Budget estimate.........................................       4,800,000
Committee recommendation................................       4,800,000

                                revenues

Appropriations, 1997....................................      $5,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................       4,800,000
Committee recommendation................................       4,800,000

    This appropriation provides for the Office of Inspector 
General of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Pursuant to law, 
budget authority appropriated to the inspector general must be 
recovered through the assessment of license and annual fees. 
The Committee recommends an appropriation of $4,800,000 for 
fiscal year 1997.

                  Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board

Appropriations, 1997....................................      $2,531,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................       3,200,000
Committee recommendation................................       3,200,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $3,200,000 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, 1997....................................    $106,000,000
Budget estimate, 1998...................................     106,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      86,000,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $86,000,000 
for the Tennessee Valley Authority. This is $20,000,000 below 
the budget request for fiscal year 1998.
    The budget for fiscal year 1998 for the Tennessee Valley 
Authority contemplated the development of a plan that would 
eliminate Federal funding for the agency's appropriated 
programs by fiscal year 1999. It was felt that such action 
would allow TVA to focus more on generating low-cost, 
dependable electricity. TVA's efforts to develop such a plan 
have not produced consensus on a way to achieve a significant 
shift away from appropriations. In addition, the Committee is 
aware of several legislative proposals which fundamentally 
change the mission or future of the Tennessee Valley Authority.
    The Committee recommendation for fiscal year 1998 continues 
the phase down of TVA while allowing the region and Congress 
time to consider the future of TVA's activities and 
responsibilities. The amount recommended by the Committee 
includes $78,000,000 for general stewardship of the water and 
land resources of the Tennessee River basin, including 
$7,900,000 for the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation 
Area and $5,000,000 to continue environmental cleanup work at 
the Environmental Research Center.
    The Committee urges the TVA to work with local sponsors in 
Union County, MS, in its efforts to establish a new water 
supply lake, and to work cooperatively to resolve the need to 
relocate TVA power lines that may lie within the project area 
and assist in the preparation of the environmental impact 
statement on the project where appropriate.
                      TITLE V--GENERAL PROVISIONS

    Section 502. Albuquerque metropolitan area water 
reclamation and reuse, New Mexico.--The Committee has included 
language in the bill to clarify that the project is eligible 
for construction under title XVI of Reclamation Wastewater and 
Groundwater Act, Public Law 104-266, as amended.
    Section 503. Chandler pumping plant, Arizona.--Language is 
included which amends the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Treaty 
Settlement Act of 1994 (Public Law 103-434) to increase the 
appropriation ceiling to $13,000,000, at 1997 prices, plus or 
minus such amounts that may result from ordinary fluctuations 
of applicable cost indexes. The increase is needed as the 
result of unforeseen design changes, including the need to 
provide protection to the existing discharge pipe from pressure 
surges. The modifications are expected to result in up to 420 
ft\3\/s, additional flow in an 11 mile stretch of the Yakima 
River that is critical to the movement of anadromous fish.

  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 
$160,000,000.

COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 7(C), RULE XXVI, OF THE STANDING RULES OF THE 
                                 SENATE

    Pursuant to paragraph 7(c) of rule XXVI, the Committee en 
bloc ordered reported S. 1005, an original DOD appropriations 
bill and S. 1004, an original Energy and Water Development 
appropriations bill, 1998, subject to amendment and subject to 
their budget allocations, by a recorded vote of 28-0, a quorum 
being present. The vote was as follows:
