       JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE

      The managers on the part of the House and the Senate at 
the conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on

                                TITLE I

                 EMERGENCY SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS

                               CHAPTER 1

                       DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

                        Office of the Secretary

                       additional farm assistance

      The conferees recognize the problems facing agricultural 
producers today and understand that the actual needs for 
disaster assistance funds provided last year likely will exceed 
the projections of the Department of Agriculture. The 
Department of Agriculture has projected that net farm income 
will decline $3 billion below last year. The conferees expect 
the administration to monitor the situation closely and if 
necessary, submit requests for additional funds to the Congress 
for consideration.

 emergency grants to assist low-income migrant and seasonal farmworkers

      The conference agreement provides $20,000,000 for 
emergency grants to assist low-income migrant and seasonal 
farmworkers instead of $25,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. 
The House had no similar provision. This program will provide 
assistance to farmworkers in areas of California and Florida 
impacted by natural disasters.

                     Agricultural Marketing Service

                           marketing services

      The conference agreement does not include language 
proposed by the Senate providing additional funding for the 
agricultural marketing assistance and the rural business 
enterprise grant programs. The House had no similar provision. 
The conferees encourage the Department to give consideration to 
rural business enterprise grant applications from those States 
in the Northeast where apples and onions are grown. The 
conferees strongly encourage the Agricultural Marketing Service 
to consider applications for grants from these States to assist 
in the development of successful marketing strategies for 
apples and onions.

          funds for strengthening markets, income, and supply

                              (section 32)

      The conference agreement provides $145,000,000 for 
activities under section 32 instead of $150,000,000 as proposed 
by the Senate. The conference agreement also includes language 
proposed by the Senate as a general provision allowing the 
Secretary of Agriculture to waive the limitation established 
under section 32 on the amount of funds that may be devoted 
during fiscal year 1999 to any one agricultural commodity or 
product. The House had no similar provisions.

                          Farm Service Agency

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement provides an additional 
$42,753,000 for salaries and expenses for temporary employees 
of the Farm Service Agency as proposed by both the House and 
the Senate.

           agricultural credit insurance fund program account

                     (including transfers of funds)

      The conference agreement provides a total of $109,609,000 
for additional farm ownership loans, farm operating loans, 
emergency loans, and administrative expenses as proposed by 
both the House and the Senate, to remain available until 
September 30, 2000, as proposed by the House. The conference 
agreement also includes language to facilitate the repayment of 
funds re-directed from the Farm Service Agency Salaries and 
Expenses account in anticipation of supplemental funding, and 
to permit transfers between the farm operating and ownership 
guaranteed and direct lending programs subject to the prior 
approval of the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations.

                     emergency conservation program

      The conference agreement provides $28,000,000 for the 
Emergency Conservation Program instead of $30,000,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The House had no similar provision. The 
conference agreement also includes statutory language to allow 
previously appropriated funds not needed for cost-sharing 
assistance to maple producers to replace taps and tubing to be 
available for other Emergency Conservation Program activities, 
and to allow funds to be used for certain streambank 
restoration.
      The conferees are aware of a recent fire in Nebraska for 
which these funds may be available.

                   Commodity Credit Corporation Fund

                      livestock indemnity program

      The conference agreement provides $3,000,000 for the 
livestock indemnity program as proposed by the Senate, modified 
to state that the program shall be effective only for certain 
losses. The House had no similar provision.

                 Natural Resources Conservation Service

               watershed and flood prevention operations

      The conference agreement provides $95,000,000 for 
Watershed and Flood Prevention Operations instead of 
$100,000,000 as proposed by the Senate, and deletes language 
proposed by the Senate regarding debris removal. The House had 
no similar provision. The conferees understand that authority 
currently exists for such debris removal activities.

           Rural Economic and Community Development Programs

                  rural community advancement program

      The conference agreement provides $30,000,000 for direct 
loans and grants to rural utilities, of which $25,000,000 shall 
be for grants, as proposed by the Senate. The House had no 
similar provision.

                         Rural Housing Service

              rural housing insurance fund program account

      The conference agreement provides a total of $1,534,000 
for section 502 single-family housing loans and for section 504 
housing repair loans to meet needs resulting from natural 
disasters as proposed by the Senate. The House had no similar 
provision.

                    rural housing assistance grants

      The conference agreement provides $1,000,000 for very 
low-income housing repair to meet needs resulting from natural 
disasters as proposed by the Senate. The House had no similar 
provision.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS, THIS CHAPTER

      Senate Section 1101. The conference agreement does not 
include a general provision proposed by the Senate regarding 
the limitation established under Section 32 on the amount of 
funds devoted in a fiscal year to any one agricultural 
commodity or product. The House had no similar provision. This 
matter is addressed in the conference agreement under the 
heading ``Funds for Strengthening Markets, Income, and Supply 
(Section 32)''.
      Senate Section 1102. The conference agreement includes 
language to allow assistance for certain multiyear crop losses 
for the years in which established loss thresholds were met. 
The Senate provision would have made losses in additional years 
eligible. The House had no similar provision.
      Senate Section 1103. The conference agreement includes 
language which provides $28,000,000 in fiscal year 1999 and 
$35,000,000 in fiscal year 2000 through the Commodity Credit 
Corporation for technical assistance activities in carrying out 
the Conservation Reserve Program and the Wetlands Reserve 
Program. The Senate provision addressed fiscal year 1999. The 
House had no similar provision.
      Senate Section 1104. The conference agreement includes 
language proposed by the Senate regarding commercial fisheries. 
The House had no similar provision.
      Senate Section 1105. The conference agreement provides 
$70,000,000 for the livestock assistance program as proposed by 
the Senate, and adds language providing that the definition of 
livestock shall include reindeer. The House had no similar 
provision.
      Senate Section 1106. The conference agreement does not 
include Section 1106, as proposed by the Senate, to extend the 
sales closing date for producers who applied for crop revenue 
coverage plus. The House had no similar provision. Similar 
provisions are included in Public Law 106-7.
      Senate Section 4013. The conference agreement includes 
language proposed by the Senate regarding the Denali Commission 
Act of 1998, modified to include a contingent emergency 
declaration. The House had no similar provision.

                               CHAPTER 2

                         DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

                 Immigration and Naturalization Service

                         salaries and expenses

                     enforcement and border affairs

      The conference agreement includes $80,000,000, as an 
emergency appropriation, to remain available until expended, as 
proposed in the House bill, for 2,945 additional detention beds 
for the detention of criminal aliens from Central America and 
illegal aliens from Central America apprehended at or near the 
border. The conferees understand that these funds are necessary 
to prevent criminal aliens from Central America from being 
released into the community while awaiting deportation and to 
provide for detention space at or near the border for 
apprehended illegal aliens from Central America and direct the 
Attorney General to administer these funds. The detention of 
aliens along the Southwest border serves as a major deterrent 
to potential illegal border crossings and is necessary to 
prevent large numbers of Central Americans from traveling north 
and illegally entering the U.S.
      The conferees share the concerns raised in the House and 
Senate reports and strongly urge INS to address its management 
failures to adequately identify its detention needs, to request 
the necessary funds to prevent criminal aliens from being 
released, and to support the border enforcement strategy. The 
conferees recognize that the fiscal year 1999 budget request 
from INS only included minimal contract and State and local 
beds, approximately 100, necessitating the resource requirement 
that this supplemental attempts to address.
      The conferees direct the INS to promptly deliver all 
previously requested and overdue reports.

                            OTHER PROVISIONS

      Emergency Steel Loan Guarantee Act of 1999.--The 
Conference agreement deleted, without prejudice, the emergency 
steel loan guarantee program, as proposed by the Senate. No 
similar provision was included in the House bill.
      Emergency Oil and Gas Guaranteed Loan Program Act.--The 
Conference agreement deleted, without prejudice, the emergency 
oil and gas guaranteed loan program, as proposed by the Senate. 
No similar provision was included in the House bill.

                               CHAPTER 3

                    DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE--MILITARY

      Chapter 3 of the conference agreement recommends a total 
of $215,900,000 in new budget authority for the Department of 
Defense, instead of $194,900,000 as proposed by the House and 
$209,700,000 as proposed by the Senate, for disaster relief 
efforts resulting from Hurricanes Mitch and Georges in Central 
America.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend language, as 
requested by the President and proposed by the House, which 
designates all appropriations as emergency requirements.
      The following table provides details of the emergency 
supplemental appropriations in this chapter for disaster 
assistance related to Hurricanes Mitch and Georges.

                           Military Personnel

      The conferees recommend $16,300,000 as proposed by the 
House, instead of $11,200,000 as proposed by the Senate, to 
support National Guard and Reserve participation in the 
Enhanced New Horizons readiness training exercises in Central 
America. In addition, the conferees agree to retain House 
language which would make certain appropriations available to 
the Guard and Reserve subject to receipt of an emergency budget 
request by the President to the Congress.

                       Operation and Maintenance

      The conferees agree to provide $199,600,000 for Operation 
and Maintenance costs associated with hurricane relief efforts 
in Central America, instead of $178,600,000 as proposed by the 
House and $198,500,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      New Horizons Transfer Fund.--The conferees agree to 
provide $46,000,000 for the ``New Horizons Exercise Transfer 
Fund'', a new appropriations account proposed by the Senate. 
The conferees direct that the Department of Defense provide a 
report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations not 
later than June 30, 1999, which describes the allocation of 
funding from this account to the military services and defense-
wide activities, and explains the specific projects and 
programs supported by this funding.
      Operation and Maintenance, Marine Corps.--The conferees 
agree to provide $2,400,000. This amount reflects a technical 
correction needed to properly distribute funding which was 
originally requested for ``Operation and Maintenance, Navy''.
      Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide.--The conferees 
agree to retain language proposed by the Senate which directs 
that $20,000,000 within this appropriation is only for the CINC 
Initiative Fund. The conferees also agree to delete language 
proposed by the Senate which rescinds $217,000,000 due to 
changes in the price of bulk fuel.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS, THIS CHAPTER

      The conferees agree to delete language proposed by the 
Senate which earmarks funds previously appropriated to the 
Department of Defense.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 301, as 
proposed by the Senate, which waives the requirement for 
reimbursement of expenses for five additional foreign students 
at the military service academies.
      The conferees agree to delete language proposed by the 
Senate which earmarks funds for the settlement of claims 
arising from the U.S. Marine Corps accident near Cavalese, 
Italy.
      The conferees agree to retain section 302, as proposed by 
the Senate, which would allow military technicians to receive a 
per diem expense while deployed on active duty.
      The conferees agree to delete language proposed by the 
Senate which authorizes the Department to obtain operational 
support aircraft through a multiyear lease.
      The conferees agree to retain section 303, as proposed by 
the Senate, which authorizes the sale of 17,383 tons of 
zirconium ore.
      The conferees agree to include section 304, which allows 
the Joint STARS program to use current year funds to adjust, 
record, and liquidate obligations associated with aircraft 
procured in fiscal years 1995 and 1996. The Joint STARS program 
refurbishes used aircraft before installing the new mission 
electronics. Unfortunately, these aircraft have been more 
difficult to refurbish than originally anticipated. Since the 
capability offered by Joint STARS is urgently needed to support 
military operations, disruptions to the delivery schedule 
through lack of funds would be detrimental to U.S. military 
capabilities. The general provision caps the authority to use 
previously appropriated funds at $50,700,000, and requires the 
Air Force to notify the congressional defense committees of the 
specific sources to be used for Joint STARS obligations. The 
provision further requires the Air Force to follow all normal 
reprogramming procedures.

                               CHAPTER 4

                     BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  Funds Appropriated to the President

                  Agency for International Development

                   international disaster assistance

      The conference agreement appropriates $25,000,000 for the 
International Disaster Assistance account as proposed by the 
House. The Senate proposed $35,000,000.

                  Other Bilateral Economic Assistance

                         economic support fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $50,000,000 in the 
Economic Support Fund for Jordan, the same amount as proposed 
by both the House and the Senate.

              Central America and the Caribbean Emergency

                         disaster recovery fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $621,000,000 for 
the Central America and the Caribbean Emergency Disaster 
Recovery Fund (CACEDRF), the same amount proposed by the House. 
The Senate proposed $611,000,000 for the CACEDRF. The 
conference agreement includes language requiring the President 
to submit to Congress a specific budget request designating the 
entire amount as an emergency. The funds are to remain 
available until September 30, 2000.
      The conference agreement provides transfer authority from 
the CACEDRF to several other accounts for the administrative 
and oversight costs of implementing the emergency recovery 
program in the region. For Operating Expenses of the Agency for 
International Development, the conference agreement 
appropriates up to $5,500,000 to remain available until 
September 30, 2000. The House provided $5,000,000 and the 
Senate provided $6,000,000.
      For Operating Expenses of the AID Inspector General, the 
conference agreement appropriates up to $1,500,000, as proposed 
by the Senate, to be used for costs of audits, inspections, and 
other activities associated with the use of funds in the 
CACEDRF. The House proposed up to $2,000,000. The conference 
agreement provides up to $500,000 for the General Accounting 
Office to audit and monitor the use of CACEDRF funds, as 
proposed by the Senate. The House bill contained no provision 
on this matter.
      The conferees continue to seek to prevent any misuse of 
U.S. foreign aid and have, therefore, made available funds from 
this account for the AID Inspector General and the General 
Accounting Office. In addition, the conferees believe that AID 
and GAO should help recipient governments play a central role 
in ensuring that this emergency assistance is utilized 
properly. The conferees encourage AID to support the efforts of 
recipient governments to engage independent private sector 
organizations to help improve institutional capability to 
resist corrupt practices and to report on the possible misuse 
of funds.
      The conference agreement provides that not less than 
$2,000,000 from within the CACEDRF should be used for landmine 
clearing and the removal of unexploded ordinance in Nicaragua 
and Honduras as proposed by the Senate amendment. The House 
bill contained no provision on this matter.
      The conference agreement prohibits the use of non-project 
assistance from this account as proposed by the House. The 
Senate allowed non-project assistance subject to the regular 
notification procedures of the Appropriations Committee.
      The managers concur with report language under this 
heading in both the Senate and House reports, and encourage OMB 
and AID to regularly consult with the Committees on 
implementation of recommendations and directives contained in 
the reports.
      The Senate included bill language encouraging AID to 
promote reforestation and energy conservation. The House bill 
contained no similar provision. The conference report contains 
no bill language specifically related to these two issues, but 
the managers agree on the importance of energy and 
reforestation and believe that these priorities should be 
integrated into AID's overall relief and reconstruction efforts 
in the region. The conferees support funding to promote the 
critical energy sector through the use of energy-efficient 
services and technologies and, where feasible, renewable energy 
such as biomass. Prompt and full restoration of power 
generation facilities at the El Cajon Dam in Honduras is of 
special interest to the Conferees because of the foreign 
exchange and environmental costs of alternative sources. The 
managers expect that AID will undertake efforts to promote 
reforestation, with careful attention to the choice, placement, 
and management of species of trees consistent with watershed 
management objectives designed to minimize future storm damage. 
Further, the managers agree on the importance of technology 
transfers in support of reforestation and agro-forestry.
      The Senate included bill language providing up to 
$10,000,000 from within the CACEDRF to establish a scholarship 
fund at Zamorano Agricultural University in Honduras for low-
to-middle income students. The House bill contained no 
provision on this matter. The managers believe greater access 
to education is essential to long-term development in Central 
America and encourage AID to assist Central American 
governments in increasing lower income student enrollment in 
the region's colleges and universities, especially at Zamorano 
University.
      The conferees encourage the use of the Pan American 
Health Organization for the implementation and coordination of 
regional infectious disease prevention programs funded in this 
account.
      The conference agreement includes language waiving 
certain laws relating to expenditure of funds by AID. The 
Senate bill provided broad authority to waive existing laws 
related to contracts, subject to AID reporting to Congress. The 
House contained no similar provision. While the conference 
agreement contains no waiver for AID contracting authority, the 
conferees believe that existing AID contracting and procurement 
regulations already permit AID to exercise significant latitude 
in making and amending contracts in urgent and compelling 
situations. The assistance provided in this account is to 
respond to urgent and compelling needs in the region, and, 
therefore, AID should exercise its contracting waivers to help 
reduce delays in AID's procurement processes so that these 
supplemental funds can reach those in need more rapidly. The 
managers expect AID to keep the Committees on Appropriations 
informed of the use of contract and procurement waivers for 
projects funded from CACEDRF funds. The conference agreement 
allows AID to charge to the CACEDRF certain financial 
obligations made from other AID development accounts after 
April 30, 1999. The managers expect that, to the extent 
practicable, contracts and grants should be awarded to U.S. 
private organizations and individuals, including those linked 
with indigenous Central American counterparts, provided that 
such a preference does not delay or hinder the delivery of 
assistance. The conferees encourage the use of the private 
sector, especially in such technical areas as mapping, to the 
maximum extent possible. New base maps that identify future 
flood hazards are urgently needed to help mitigate risks 
associated with proposed reconstruction efforts.
      At the request of the Administration, the agreement also 
includes bill language making inapplicable section 110 of the 
Foreign Assistance Act regarding host country contributions to 
certain U.S. development projects. The managers are aware that 
the governments of the affected nations bear the primary 
responsibility for their nations' reconstruction and have 
already dedicated enormous resources to relief and 
reconstruction efforts. These nations are expected to spend a 
considerable percentage of their annual government budget on 
reconstruction projects in upcoming years, making the need for 
section 110 cost sharing requirements unnecessary.
      The conference agreement reiterates that all funds in the 
CACEDRF as well as funds appropriated in this Act which are in 
addition to funds made available under title II of the 1999 
Foreign Operations Act, be subject to section 580 of the 1999 
Foreign Operations Act, regarding the ceiling on overall 
population planning assistance. This is similar to the 
provision recommended by the House. The Senate bill contained 
no similar provision.
      The conferees encourage AID to consider Costa Rica among 
those nations eligible for funds from this account as a result 
of the costs assumed by Costa Rica in providing refuge to 
hurricane victims from neighboring Central American nations.
      The conference agreement also includes technical language 
to permit any transfer of funds to the Export-Import Bank to be 
used as subsidy credit authority under the Credit Reform Act of 
1990.

                          DEPARTMENT OF STATE

          International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement

      The conference agreement appropriates $23,000,000 for 
anti-narcotics drug research and development programs as 
proposed by the Senate. Further, the conference agreement makes 
the funds available only after the President transmits to 
Congress a budget request that includes a designation of the 
funds as an emergency need. The House bill contained no similar 
provisions. The conferees expect that any future funding for 
drug research programs will be funded through the Office of 
National Drug Control Policy.
      The conferees are aware that Central American and 
Caribbean nations are facing budget shortfalls in government 
anti-narcotics and drug interdiction programs created due to 
the redirection of funding to urgent reconstruction efforts. 
Since these supplemental funds will increase the overall 
resources available for the State Department narcotics control 
programs for fiscal year 1999, the conferees encourage the 
State Department to consider dedicating additional anti-
narcotics resources to nations affected by the hurricanes.

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

                           Debt Restructuring

      The conference agreement appropriates $41,000,000 for 
debt restructuring as provided by both the House and the 
Senate. The conference agreement requires that all funds for 
the Central America Emergency Trust Fund, administered by the 
World Bank, are subject to the regular notification procedures 
of the Committees.

                          MILITARY ASSISTANCE

                  Funds Appropriated to the President

                   Foreign Military Financing Program

      The conference agreement appropriates $50,000,000 for 
Foreign Military Financing grants for Jordan, as provided by 
the House and Senate.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

      The conference agreement includes a general provision 
designating funds in this chapter as an emergency under the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.
      The conference agreement includes a general provision 
providing a supplemental appropriation of $6,500,000 for the 
Economic Support Fund for election monitoring and related 
activities for East Timor.
      The conference agreement includes a general provision, 
similar to a provision in the Senate amendment, that transfers 
responsibility for certain counternarcotics research and 
development activities from the Department of Agriculture to 
the Department of State.

                               CHAPTER 5

      The managers understand that the estimates, which form 
the basis for the emergency construction appropriations herein, 
are based on preliminary damage determinations. Refinements and 
re-estimates, that result in allocations different from 
preliminary projections, may be necessary. The managers expect 
funds to be provided consistent with established priorities. 
Before proceeding with final allocations to the field, the 
managers expect the agencies to provide a report that 
identifies all of the projects considered for funding, 
including any changes from earlier estimates.

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

                United States Fish and Wildlife Service

                              Construction

      The managers have provided $12,612,000 for construction, 
contingent on a Presidential declaration of emergency, as 
proposed by the Senate instead of no funding as proposed by the 
House. The amount included herein provides funds for emergency 
repairs associated with Federally-declared emergencies in the 
Pacific Northwest and for the full cost of emergency 
replacement of generating equipment at Midway Atoll National 
Wildlife Refuge.

                       DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

                             Forest Service

                    reconstruction and construction

      The managers have provided $5,611,000, contingent on a 
Presidential declaration of emergency, for reconstruction and 
construc-

tion to address damages from Hurricane Georges and other 
natural disasters in Puerto Rico as proposed by the House 
instead of no funding as proposed by the Senate.

                          OTHER RELATED AGENCY

                UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL COUNCIL

                       Holocaust Memorial Council

      The managers have provided $2,000,000, contingent on a 
Presidential declaration of emergency, for the Holocaust 
Memorial Council to address security needs as proposed by the 
Senate instead of no funding as proposed by the House.

                    GENERAL PROVISION--THIS CHAPTER

      Section 501.--The managers have modified language 
proposed by the Senate (section 2319) dealing with compensation 
for Dungeness crab fishermen in Glacier Bay, Alaska and 
deferring National Park Service Construction funding. The 
deferral proposed by the Senate has been deleted. The 
modification to the compensation language is described below.
      The managers have agreed to revisions to the Senate 
provision expanding the compensation program for those 
negatively affected by restrictions on commercial fishing. In 
addition, full funding of $26,000,000, contingent on a 
Presidential declaration of emergency, is provided to implement 
the compensation program. To provide a transition period for 
fishermen, crew, fish processors, communities, and others 
negatively affected, the managers have agreed to suspend the 
ban on commercial fishing through the upcoming fishing season 
to provide fishermen an additional season to fish. During the 
fishing season, the managers expect the Department of the 
Interior, after consulting fully with the State of Alaska, to 
expedite development of the compensation program so that 
compensation can be distributed no later than the end of the 
fishing season.
      The managers have not included language as proposed by 
the Senate (section 1403) providing royalty reductions for oil 
and gas producers. The House had no similar provision.

                               CHAPTER 6

                           INDEPENDENT AGENCY

                    Environmental Protection Agency

                         science and technology

      Deletes language proposed by the Senate which would have 
rescinded $10,000,000 for research through the Climate Change 
Technology Initiative.

                  Federal Emergency Management Agency

                            disaster relief

      The conferees have agreed to provide $900,000,000 for 
disaster relief, instead of $372,000,000 as requested by the 
President in a letter dated May 10, 1999. This issue was not 
addressed by either the House or the Senate. Included in this 
amount are funds needed to allow FEMA to respond to the 
tornado-related damage in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, and 
Tennessee, including the repair and replacement of public 
buildings such as schools and public libraries. In addition, 
the amount provided should be sufficient to meet the immediate 
needs associated with any disaster events which occur in the 
remaining months of this fiscal year. The conferees are very 
troubled that the Congress was not notified in a timely manner 
of the fact that disaster close-out activities were resulting 
in a rate of obligation much faster than normal, which would 
have resulted in a year-end shortfall in the disaster relief 
fund absent supplemental appropriations. It is expected that 
the administration will monitor closely the obligation rate and 
provide timely and accurate data on the status of the disaster 
relief fund in the future. The amount provided is available 
only to the extent that an official budget request for a 
specific amount, which includes designation of the entire 
amount of the request as an emergency, is transmitted by the 
President to the Congress.

                  disaster assistance for unmet needs

      The conferees have provided $230,000,000 for disaster 
assistance for unmet needs instead of $313,600,000 as proposed 
by the Senate and no funds as proposed by the House. The 
conferees have included bill language intended to give the 
Director of theFederal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 
sufficient flexibility to respond to the unmet needs of Presidentially-
declared disasters occurring during fiscal years 1998 and 1999.
      Appropriations totaling $313,600,000 had previously been 
made to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) 
in order to address such unmet needs. However, the conferees 
are concerned with HUD's inability to move aggressively to 
implement an effective disaster relief program for such needs 
and have concluded that FEMA is the appropriate Federal agency 
to carry out this program. Accordingly, FEMA should make every 
effort to move expeditiously to provide for these unmet needs 
to the greatest extent possible.
      In this regard, the conferees have provided flexibility 
beyond that normally available to FEMA to respond to 
Presidentially-declared events occurring during 1998 and 1999. 
Among these is the 1998 Northeast ice storm, which 
significantly damaged large areas of New York, Vermont, New 
Hampshire, and Maine. Except for Maine, the Director is urged 
to review promptly and respond to the needs of this area. In 
particular, the conferees are aware of the unprecedented impact 
of this storm on the electrical infrastructure of the region, 
and that the costs associated with restoring essential electric 
service constitutes the largest single unmet need.
      In addition, FEMA is expected to work with Puerto Rico 
regarding the damage caused by Hurricane Georges, as well as 
the States of Mississippi and Kansas to address the damage 
resulting from recent floods in those states. The conferees 
understand that damage estimates provided by Mississippi total 
some $66,000,000 for buy-outs and other assistance. Similarly, 
the conferees note the devastation caused by the 1998 Halloween 
flood in Kansas, and strongly urge FEMA to provide sufficient 
funds for buy-out assistance and appropriate compensation for 
homeowners and businesses in Butler, Cowley, and Sedgwick 
counties. Such buy-out requirements have been estimated to be 
$20,000.000.
      Finally, the conferees urge FEMA to respond promptly to 
the appropriate disaster needs of the City of Kelso, 
Washington.

   TITLE II--EMERGENCY NATIONAL SECURITY SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS

                               CHAPTER 1

                       Department of Agriculture

               public law 480 program and grant accounts

      The conference agreement provides an additional 
$149,200,000 for assistance under title II of Public Law 480 
for humanitarian food aid in the Balkans and other regions of 
need. The House and the Senate had no similar provision.

                               CHAPTER 2

                          DEPARTMENT OF STATE

                   Administrative of Foreign Affairs

                    diplomatic and consular programs

      The conference agreement includes $17,071,000, as an 
emergency appropriation, to remain available until expended, as 
proposed in the House bill. This amount provides for the costs 
of diplomatic efforts related to the Kosovo crisis, including 
the costs of shutting down embassy operations in Belgrade and 
enhancing security at posts in the region.

           security and maintenance of United States missions

      The conference agreement includes $50,500,000, as an 
emergency appropriation, to remain available until expended, as 
provided in the House bill. Of this amount, $45,500,000 is 
provided above the request, and release of any portion of this 
funding is contingent upon a Presidential emergency 
designation. The amount above the request is provided for the 
costs of constructing fully secure State Department facilities 
in the Kosovo region, including, if applicable, costs of 
constructing Marine Security Guard quarters. Prior to the 
expenditure of any portion of the funds provided above the 
request, the Department is directed to submit a notification to 
the Senate and House Committees on Appropriations containing 
project spending plans. The conferees agree that any such 
spending plans shall address the highest priority security 
construction needs in the region and result in at least one 
embassy facility in the region that fully meets existing State 
Department security standards.

           emergencies in the diplomatic and consular service

      The conference agreement includes $2,929,000, as an 
emergency appropriation, to remain available until expended, as 
proposed in the House bill. The conference agreement includes 
language transferring $500,000 to the Peace Corps and $450,000 
to the U.S. Information Agency for the costs of evacuating 
personnel and dependents of those agencies.

      The conferees note that the funding provided in the 
conference agreement for Operation Allied Force will increase 
the deficit for fiscal year 1999 excluding the surpluses 
generated by the Social Security trust funds. The conferees 
urge the committees of jurisdiction to develop legislation that 
will provide that the first claim on any surplus generated by 
the Federal government excluding the Social Security trust 
funds in fiscal years 2000 and 2001 be used to cover the fiscal 
year 1999 outlays resulting from the conference agreement for 
the cost of Operation Allied Force.

                         reporting requirements

      The conferees agree to the reporting requirements 
directed in House Report 106-125 regarding obligation of funds 
provided in this chapter.

                           military personnel

      The conferees agrees to provide $16,469,000, as 
recommended in the budget request and proposed by the House, 
for additional military personnel pay and allowances in support 
of contingency operations in Southwest Asia.

             overseas contingency operations transfer fund

      The conferees agree to provide $5,007,300,000, instead of 
$5,219,100,000 as proposed by the House, for the ``Overseas 
Contingency Operations Transfer Fund'' for costs relating to 
Operation Allied Force and related NATO activities concerning 
Kosovo, and operations in Southwest Asia. Of this amount, 
$3,907,300,000 is provided for personnel and operations costs 
stemming from these operations. An additional $1,100,000,000 is 
provided on a contingent emergency basis to meet expected 
munitions and readiness-related Kosovo expenses, and will be 
made available only to the extent funds are requested in a 
subsequent budget request by the President.

                              procurement

      The conferees agree to provide $984,300,000 instead of 
$1,084,300,000 as proposed by the House, for requirements 
associated with operations in Kosovo and Southwest Asia. Of 
this amount, the conferees agree to provide $684,300,000 to 
various procurement accounts, for programs specified in the 
President's request to Congress, to replenish inventories of 
munitions used during the conduct of these operations. An 
additional $300,000,000 is provided in a new account, the 
``Operational Rapid Response Transfer Fund'', instead of 
$400,000,000 as proposed by the House.

                         readiness enhancements

      The conferees agree to provide $2,350,000,000 in 
contingent emergency appropriations, instead of $3,081,700,000 
as proposed by the House, to rectify emerging readiness 
concerns. This funding includes: $1,124,900,000 for spare parts 
and associated logistical support needed to improve the mission 
capable rates of various weapons systems: $742,500,000 for 
unfunded depot maintenance requirements; $100,000,000 necessary 
for recruiting initiatives; $200,200,000 for readiness related 
training programs; and $182,400,000 for unfunded expenses 
related to base operations support.
      With respect to the funding provided for spare parts and 
logistics, depot maintenance, and readiness-related training 
programs, the conference agreement provides that these funds 
shall be allocated by the Secretary of Defense and is subject 
to prior notification to the congressional defense committees. 
The conferees are aware that out of area operations have caused 
our regional commanders to experience significant shortages and 
dislocations. The conferees expect the Secretary to give 
priority to meeting the unfunded requirements of the regional 
commanders in chief in allocating these amounts. The conferees 
recognize the dynamic nature of requirements in these areas, 
and believe it prudent to provide the Secretary with sufficient 
flexibility to meet time-urgent demands in order to ensure that 
overall readiness is not degraded. The conference agreement 
provides funding for these areas with authority to transfer the 
funds as required to the appropriate accounts. The conferees 
direct that the Secretary of Defense provide written 
notification to the congressional defense committees 15 days 
prior to the transfer of any funds provided by these sections.

                           Personnel Programs

      The conference agreement includes $1,838,426,000 for the 
military personnel accounts for military pay and retirement 
costs, as proposed by the House. The obligation of these funds 
would be subject to the enactment of subsequent authorizing 
legislation and the designation of the funds as an emergency 
appropriation by the President.

                          Classified Programs

      The conference agreement concerning classified activities 
is contained in a classified annex to this statement of 
managers.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 2001, as 
proposed by the House, which provides for an increase in the 
fiscal year 1999 transfer authority available to the Department 
of Defense.
      The conferees agree to retain section 2002, as proposed 
by the House, which provides that $10,000,000 of the funds 
provided in this Act may be available to the common funded 
budgets of NATO.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 2003, as 
proposed by the House which provides authorization for funds 
for intelligence activities.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 2004, as 
proposed by the House, which extends special authorities for 
contracts awarded or modified for the Joint Direct Attack 
Munition (JDAM) program.
      The conferees agree to retain section 2005, as proposed 
by the House, which requires the President to seek an equitable 
reimbursement from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization 
(NATO), member nations of NATO, and other appropriate 
organizations and nations for the costs incurred by the United 
States government in connection with Operation Allied Force.
      The conferees agree to retain section 2006, as proposed 
by the House, which directs that within thirty days of 
enactment of this Act, the President shall transmit to Congress 
a report, in both classified and unclassified format, on 
current United States government operations involving Kosovo.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 2007, as 
proposed by the House, which appropriates $1,124,900,000, 
designated as contingent emergency appropriations, only for 
urgent shortfalls in Department of Defense spare and repair 
parts and associated logistical support.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 2008, as 
proposed by the House, which appropriates $742,500,000, 
designated as contingent emergency appropriations, only for 
urgent shortfalls in the depot level maintenance and repair 
requirements of the Department of Defense.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 2009, as 
proposed by the House which appropriates $100,000,000, 
designated as contingent emergency appropriations, only for 
urgent shortfalls in Department of Defense recruiting programs.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 2010, as 
proposed by the House which appropriates $200,200,000, 
designated as contingent emergency appropriations, only for 
urgent readiness related training and operations tempo 
requirements of the Department of Defense.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 2011, as 
proposed by the House which appropriates $182,400,000, 
designated as contingent emergency appropriations, only for 
urgent base operations support requirements of the Department 
of Defense.
      The conferees agree to retain section 2012, as proposed 
by the House which appropriates $1,838,426,000, designated as 
contingent emergency appropriations, for the military personnel 
accounts, only for military pay and retirement costs.

                               CHAPTER 4

                     BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  Funds Appropriated to the President

                  Agency for International Development

                   international disaster assistance

      The conference agreement appropriates $163,000,000, as 
proposed by the House, for ``International Disaster 
Assistance'', to remain available until expended. The entire 
amount shall be available only to the extent that an official 
budget request for a specific dollar amount, that includes 
designation of the entire amount of the request as an emergency 
requirement as defined in the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended, is transmitted by the 
President to the Congress. The Senate amendment did not address 
this matter.

                  Other Bilateral Economic Assistance

                         economic support fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $105,000,000, as 
proposed by the House, for ``Economic Support Fund'', to remain 
available until September 30, 2000, for assistance for Albania, 
Macedonia, Bulgaria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, and 
Romania, and for investigations and related activities in 
Kosovo and in adjacent entities and countries regarding war 
crimes. These funds shall be available notwithstanding any 
other provision of law except section 533 of the Foreign 
Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs 
Appropriations Act, 1999 (as contained in Division A, section 
101(d) of the Omnibus Consolidated and Emergency Supplemental 
Appropriations Act, 1999 (Public Law 105-277)). In addition, 
the requirement for a notification through the regular 
notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations 
contained in subsection (b)(3) of section 533 shall be deemed 
to be satisfied if the Committees on Appropriations are 
notified at least 10 days prior to the obligation of such 
funds.
      The House bill included the same language, except that 
the requirement for a notification was reduced to 5 days. The 
Senate amendment did not address this matter.

                               war crimes

      The conference agreement includes authority to provide 
funding to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former 
Yugoslavia for investigations and prosecutions of war crimes in 
Kosovo, and for related activities. The managers note that the 
number of victims of war crimes in Kosovo may far exceed what 
is currently known. The managers believe the Administration's 
request of $5,000,000 for the War Crimes Tribunal is 
inadequate, and strongly recommend that up to an additional 
$13,000,000 be made available to meet the full request of the 
Tribunal, in consultation and coordination with other donors. 
In addition, the managers strongly recommend that $10,000,000 
be provided to the State Department's Human Rights and 
Democracy Fund, to promptly obtain information from fleeing 
refugee victims and witnesses, to assist in providing identity 
documents to refugees whose papers and property titles have 
been confiscated, to provide counseling to rape victims, and 
for related purposes. Funds for these purposes may be derived 
from other appropriation accounts provided under this chapter.

          Assistance for eastern Europe and the Baltic states

      The conference agreement appropriates $120,000,000 for 
``Assistance for Eastern Europe and the Baltic States'', to 
remain available until September 30, 2000, of which up to 
$1,000,000 may be used for administrative costs of the U.S. 
Agency for International Development. Funds appropriated under 
this heading are subject to the regular notification procedures 
of the Committees on Appropriations.
      The House bill included the same language, but 
appropriated $75,000,000. The Senate amendment did not address 
this matter.

                long-term development and reconstruction

      The managers agree that none of the funds appropriated 
under this heading or in this chapter are to be used to 
implement a long-term, regional program of development or 
reconstruction in Southeastern Europe. These funds are 
appropriated for emergency support of refugees and displaced 
persons and the local communities directly affected by the 
influx of refugees. The appropriation for the Economic Support 
Fund is intended for short-term, emergency balance of payments 
support for the countries listed in the bill language, and for 
investigations of war crimes.

                          DEPARTMENT OF STATE

                    Migration and Refugee Assistance

      The conference agreement appropriates $266,000,000 for 
``Migration and Refugee Assistance'', to remain available until 
September 30, 2000, of which not more than $500,000 is for 
administrative expenses. The entire amount shall be available 
only to the extent that an official budget request for a 
specific dollar amount, that includes designation of the entire 
amount of the request as an emergency requirement as defined in 
the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, 
as amended, is transmitted by the President to the Congress. In 
addition, funds made available for the Office of the United 
Nations High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR) are subject to 
the regular notification procedures of the Committees on 
Appropriations, but the regular requirement for a 15 day 
notification prior to the obligation of funds is reduced to 10 
days. The managers' intent is that the notification requirement 
applies only to funds appropriated in this account by this Act.
      The House bill included $195,000,000 for this account. 
The Senate amendment did not address this matter.

     United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $165,000,000 for 
``United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance 
Fund''. The entire amount shall be available only to the extent 
that an official budget request for a specific dollar amount, 
that includes designation of the entire amount of the request 
as an emergency requirement as defined in the Balanced Budget 
and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended, is 
transmitted by the President to the Congress.
      The House bill included $95,000,000 for this account. The 
Senate amendment did not address this matter.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

      The conference agreement includes a general provision 
designating funds in this chapter as an emergency under the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.
      The conference agreement includes a general provision 
proposed by the House that provides that the value of 
commodities and services authorized by the President through 
March 31, 1999, to be drawn down under the authority of section 
552(c)(2) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 to support 
international relief efforts relating to the Kosovo conflict 
shall not be counted against the ceiling limitation of that 
section. In addition, such assistance may be made available 
notwithstanding any other provision of law.
      The managers note that funds provided in this Act as 
supplemental appropriations for the Foreign Operations, Export 
Financing, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 1999, are 
subject to section 526 of said Act.

                           donated equipment

      The conferees are aware that a large number of computers 
and computer equipment have been donated to various 
international agencies and non-governmental organizations to 
assist with the refugee crisis in the Balkans. The conferees 
support the use of emergency supplemental funds to assist 
organizations such as the National Technology Alliance for on-
site computer network development, hardware and software 
integration, and to assess the urgent on-site computer needs of 
organizations assisting refugees. In addition, the conferees 
encourage the use of these funds for the development and 
implementation of reliable systems to register refugees and 
provide identification cards and other document processing.

                               CHAPTER 5

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

                Administration for Children and Families

                     refugee and entrant assistance

      The conference agreement includes an appropriation of not 
to exceed $100,000,000 for costs related to assisting in the 
temporary resettlement of displaced Kosovar Albanians who have 
recently come to this country. The agreement provides that the 
appropriation is designated an emergency requirement under the 
Budget Act. No funds were included for this in either the House 
or Senate bills. The conferees have included these funds in 
response to an unofficial request from the Administration to 
address the refugee emergency that has arisen as a result of 
the conflict in the Balkans.

                               CHAPTER 6

                         DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

                         MILITARY CONSTRUCTION

      The conferees have established a ``Military Construction 
Transfer Fund'' in the amount of $475,000,000, contingent on 
the Presidential declaration of an emergency. This fund is to 
be used for construction of mission, readiness and force 
protection items in relation to the conflict in the Balkans, 
and other contingencies throughout the region. The Secretary of 
Defense is given the authority to determine the individual 
items to be provided by this appropriation and to transfer 
these funds only to the appropriate military construction 
accounts. The Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) is 
directed to submit an after the fact notification of transfers 
from this fund and the individual projects to be provided to 
the appropriate committees of Congress.

                               CHAPTER 7

                      DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

                              Coast Guard

                           operating expenses

      The conference agreement provides an emergency 
appropriation of $200,000,000 for Coast Guard ``Operating 
expenses'', to address ongoing readiness requirements. The 
conferees expect the Coast Guard to use these funds for 
activities such as the military pay raise, compensation parity 
(basic allowance for housing), DOD authorization act 
entitlements, military health care, recruiting, workforce 
readiness tools, DOD parity, intermediate and depot-level 
maintenance, and additional staffing. These funds are made 
available until September 30, 2000, and are only available upon 
designation by the President of an emergency requirement. The 
conferees direct that requests to obligate these funds be 
submitted to the Congress under the normal reprogramming 
procedures. The House and Senate bills proposed no similar 
appropriation.

                 TITLE III--SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS

                               CHAPTER 1

                         DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

                         General Administration

                         counterterrorism fund

      TOPOFF Exercise.--The conferees understand the need for 
clarification of how the TOPOFF exercise should occur. In 
addition to the direction provided in previous Committee 
reports, contracting for this effort should be done with those 
organizations who have a known track record with Weapons of 
Mass Destruction (WMD) exercises. This exercise should be co-
chaired and administered without notice by the Attorney General 
and the Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA). The no-notice feature of this exercise should be 
modeled on the manner in which such exercises have been 
conducted by the Department of Defense. In order to fairly and 
accurately represent an actual event, both the FBI and the 
Office of Justice Programs should have one representative 
participating in the planning of the exercise. This planning 
will not include the time and date of the exercise.
      National Domestic Preparedness Office.--The effects of 
terrorism are felt at the local level. Local law enforcement 
and emergency first responders will be the first on the scene 
of any domestic terrorist event. The conferees are aware of the 
need expressed by State and local first responders to have a 
coordinated Federal preparedness effort to eliminate confusion, 
overlap and duplication among Federal programs. To address this 
need, the Department of Justice has proposed to create a new 
office, the National Domestic Preparedness Office (NDPO), to 
serve as the entity to coordinate the Federal efforts for 
assisting emergency responders in domestic preparedness. The 
NDPO is proposed to include representatives from the Department 
of Justice's Office of Justice Programs (OJP), the Departments 
of Defense, Health and Human Services, Energy and 
Transportation, FEMA, and the Environmental Protection Agency, 
as well as representatives of State and local government. The 
conferees believe that full participation among all Federal, 
State and local entities is critical, and that the NDPO must 
recognize and build upon, rather than re-invest, existing 
programs, structures and capabilities.
      While the conferees commend the Attorney General for her 
leadership on this matter and support the creation of a single 
office to coordinate interagency activities to maximize 
domestic preparedness efforts and eliminate duplication, the 
conferees are aware that some confusion and concerns exist 
regarding the functions and responsibilities of this office, 
particularly in relation to ongoing efforts at the Federal, 
State and local levels. The conferees note that final approval 
has not yet been given for the creation of the NDPO, and 
believe it is important that these issues be resolved. 
Therefore, the conferees direct the Attorney General to submit 
a final blueprint for the NDPO, developed in coordination with 
all other Federal, State and local participants, to the 
Committees on Appropriations no later than June 15, which 
clearly defines the roles of all agency participants in the 
office. In particular, the final blueprint shall include, but 
not be limited to, the following: (1) a detailed plan for 
consultation with the States in the development and 
implementation of a national strategy for domestic preparedness 
which builds on the existing all-hazard emergency management 
capabilities of local, State and Federal agencies, including 
designation of a single point of contact from each State and 
territory to interact with the NDPO; (2) establishment of a 
State and Local Advisory Group to provide input into program 
strategy and development which represents the various State and 
local disciplines involved in domestic terrorism response, 
including fire and rescue, HAZMAT, emergency medical and health 
services, emergency management, and State and local 
governments; and (3) a detailed plan outlining each Federal 
agency's role in the development and delivery of training and 
technical assistance, and their relationship to the NDPO. Such 
plan should fully utilize existing resources, programs and 
standards, including the National Domestic Preparedness 
Consortium, whenever possible. The conferees direct no further 
action be taken to augment the NDPO until approval has been 
given subject to standard reprogramming procedures.
      State and local preparedness.--The consequences of 
terrorist acts, especially those involving chemical, 
biological, or unconventional explosive devices, may spread 
beyond the local community or city where the event occurred. A 
successful response to such an incident will depend upon the 
development of a closely coordinated and balanced local-State-
Federal partnership. The conferees recognize the need for 
enhanced State-level involvement in consequence management and 
training preparedness activities, and urge that all Federally-
funded activities be coordinated at both the local and State 
levels. To ensure effective coordination, the conferees expect 
the Attorney General to request that the Governor of each State 
designate a lead state agency or other entity to develop and 
coordinate a comprehensive State-level domestic preparedness 
plan that is consistent with the national strategy. Such State 
strategies should be developed with input from the State and 
local emergency management, fire, law enforcement, emergency 
medical services and public health disciplines. To ensure 
maximum coordination and use of resources, the conferees expect 
each such State to be based on a State-level needs assessment 
which both identifies the needs of local and State first 
responders, and assesses the resources currently available at 
the local, State, and Federal level.
      The conferees note that the fiscal year 1999 Department 
of Justice Appropriations Act included significant new funding 
to assist State and local first responders in becoming equipped 
and trained. To ensure that these resources meet the needs of 
the maximum number of communities possible and to ensure no 
duplication of effort, funding also was provided to conduct a 
comprehensive needs assessment. This needs assessment has not 
yet been completed. The conferees reiterate the importance of 
this needs assessment, and urge the Department to continue its 
activities in this area. In the interim, the conferees expect 
the Office of Justice Programs to submit to the Committees on 
Appropriations, no later than June 1, 1999, a plan for the 
distribution of funding provided in fiscal year 1999 to provide 
the maximum number of communities with a basic defensive (Tier 
One) capability to respond to domestic terrorist incidents. 
Such plan shall, at a minimum, require that in order to qualify 
to receive equipment funds, a grant applicant must certify 
that: (1) their application has been coordinated and developed 
in consultation with the fire, EMS, HAZMAT and law enforcement 
agencies operating within the jurisdiction; and (2) equipment 
purchased with grant funds will be deployed consistent with all 
mutual aid agreements.

                         Federal Prison System

                        buildings and facilities

      It is the intent of the conferees that unobligated 
funding available from fiscal year 1999 and prior year 
appropriations not required for current construction projects 
shall be used for partial site and planning for three 
facilities to house non-returnable criminal aliens being 
transferred from the Immigration and Naturalization Service. It 
is expected that one of these facilities will be located in a 
state in the Mid-Atlantic region.

              DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE AND RELATED AGENCIES

                            RELATED AGENCIES

            Office of the United States Trade Representative

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement includes $1,300,000 for costs of 
the World Trade Organization Ministerial Meeting to be held in 
Seattle, Washington, from November 30-December 3, 1999. The 
House and Senate bills did not include this funding.

                         DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE

                          Bureau of the Census

                     periodic censuses and programs

      In response to a request, not formally transmitted, from 
the Administration, the conference agreement includes 
$44,900,000 for additional activities necessary to ensure that 
the Bureau is fully prepared to implement a full enumeration in 
the 2000 Census as mandated by the recent Supreme Court 
decision. The conference agreement designates funds to be 
provided for the following purposes: $10,900,000 is for 
additional costs to establish 520 Local Census Offices; 
$4,200,000 is for preparation of training and field deployment 
kits for census enumerators; $2,000,000 is for additional 
contract support and infrastructure costs for the Telephone 
Questionnaire Assistance program; $9,100,000 is for automated 
data processing and telecommunications to support increased 
field enumeration; $3,700,000 is for administrative systems to 
support additional field enumeration activities; and 
$15,000,000 is for increased advertising and promotion 
programs. Language is also included requiring the President to 
submit a revised budget for the fiscal year 2000 costs 
associated with the completion of the 2000 Census. The 
conferees continue to be concerned with the adequacy and 
timeliness of the budget justification materials previously 
provided by the Bureau to support their budget submissions for 
the decennial census. Therefore, the conferees expect the 
revised budget submission for fiscal year 2000 submitted by 
June 1, 1999, to contain the detailed justification necessary 
to support the revised submission.

            National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

                  operations, research, and facilities

      The conference agreement includes $1,880,000 to support 
research, management and enforcement of new regulations in the 
Northeast Multispecies fishery, instead of $3,880,000 as 
proposed by the Senate, of which $1,880,000 was for this 
activity and $2,000,000 was for the acquisition of shoreline 
data, and instead of no funding as proposed by the House.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language 
designating $2,000,000 for a regional applications program, 
which was proposed in the Senate bill. The House bill did not 
contain a similar provision.

      The conferees reiterate that, of the total amount 
provided under this heading in Public Law 105-277, $2,000,000 
shall be for the Office of Defense Trade Controls, as 
previously stated in the Statement of Managers accompanying 
that Act. As provided in that Statement of Managers, this 
funding shall support the hiring of additional senior personnel 
(GS-13 through GS-15) and support staff to improve scrutiny of 
export license applications.

      The conference agreement deletes language proposed by the 
Senate appropriating $5,000,000 for repairs to the Headgate 
Rock Hydroelectric Project.
      The conference agreement includes language appropriating 
$1,500,000 for the purchase of water to restore water levels at 
the San Carlos Lake in Arizona.

                               CHAPTER 3

                          DEPARTMENT OF STATE

necessary expenses of the National Commission on Terrorism as 
authorized in the fiscal year 1999 Foreign Operations Act.

      United States Commission on International Religious Freedom

      The conference agreement appropriates $3,000,000 for 
necessary expenses of the United States Commission on 
International Religious Freedom as authorized by the

292).

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

               International Affairs Technical Assistance

      The conference agreement appropriates $1,500,000 for the 
operation and expenses of the International Financial 
Institution Advisory Commission and the International Monetary 
Fund Advisory Committee as authorized in the fiscal year 1999 
Foreign Operations Act. The funds are to remain available until 
September 30, 2000.

                               CHAPTER 4

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

                       Bureau of Land Management

                   Management of Lands and Resources

      The managers have agreed to a modification of the Senate 
language providing for the use of $1,000,000 in previously 
appropriated funds for management of lands and resources for 
the processing of permits in the Powder River Basin for coalbed 
methane activities. The modification requires a written 
agreement between the coal mine operator and the gas producer 
prior to permit issuance if the permitted activity is in an 
area where there is a conflict between coal mining operations 
and coalbed methane production. The House had no similar 
provision.

                        Bureau of Indian Affairs

                      Operation of Indian Programs

                          (Transfer of Funds)

      The managers have agreed to the transfer of $1,136,000 
for operation of Indian programs for spruce bark beetle control 
in Washington State as proposed by the Senate but have 
identified a different funding source. The source of these 
funds is the Forest Service National Forest System account 
instead of the Forest Service Wildland Fire Management account 
as proposed by the Senate. The House had no similar provision.
      The managers expect that these funds will be deducted 
from appropriations otherwise available for the Forest 
Service's Washington, DC headquarters general administration 
activity. The specific reductions must be approved, in advance, 
by the House and Senate Appropriations Committees. The managers 
suggest that the reduction should come from the recently 
proposed headquarters staffing increases in the office of 
communications and the financial analysis office.

           Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians

                         Federal Trust Programs

      The managers have provided $21,800,000 for Federal trust 
programs as proposed by the House instead of $6,800,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.

                       DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

                             Forest Service

                        Wildland Fire Management

      The managers have agreed to the use of $100,000,000 in 
fiscal year 1998 unobligated carryover funds from the Wildland 
Fire Management account to repay funds previously advanced from 
the Knutson-Vandenberg (KV) fund for firefighting emergencies. 
The balance owed to the KV fund for prior year borrowing will 
still be $393,000,000 after this partial repayment. The 
managers believe that the Administration should regularly 
transfer carryover funds from the wildland fire management 
account to the KV fund until the previously borrowed funds have 
been repaid in full.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

      Section 3001.--The managers have modified language as 
proposed by the Senate authorizing the transfer of previously 
appropriated funds to Auburn University in Alabama for 
construction of a new forestry research facility. This language 
is a clarification of the fiscal year 1999 Forest Service 
reconstruction and construction appropriation. The modification 
removes the proviso that only $4,000,000 be transferred during 
fiscal year 1999. The House had no similar provision.
      Section 3002.--The managers have included language as 
proposed by the Senate restricting the issuance of a final rule 
on hardrock mining on Federal lands pending completion of a 
study being conducted by the National Academy of Sciences and 
an ensuing period for public comment on the rule. The House had 
no similar provision.
      Section 3003.--The managers have included language as 
proposed by the Senate extending the moratorium on the issuance 
of a final rulemaking on crude oil valuation until October 1, 
1999 or until there is a negotiated agreement, whichever comes 
first. The House had no similar provision.
      The managers have not included language as proposed by 
the Senate (section 2307) prohibiting implementation of a 
reorganization in the Office of the Special Trustee for 
American Indians for the balance of fiscal year 1999. The House 
had no similar provision.
      The managers are concerned that the Department of the 
Interior may have strayed from the vision of the American 
Indian Trust Fund Management Reform Act of 1994, P.L. 103-412 
(1994 Act) in a number of areas. The 1994 Act created the 
Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians in order to 
establish an ``entity with the knowledge and authority to 
ensure that reform takes place and coordiantes that action.''
      On March 3, 1999, the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs 
and the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources held a 
joint hearing on trust management practices in the Department 
and the reorganization of the Office of the Special Trustee by 
the Secretary of the Interior without consultation with the 
Special Trustee.
      The managers are also concerned with the lack of 
consultation with individuals and Indian tribal account holders 
who were assured that the Special Trustee would provide an 
authoritative and independent voice representing their concerns 
within the Department.
      The General Accounting Office (GAO) recently expressed 
strong concerns that the Department has also failed to 
accomplish one of the Act's goals: the creation of a 
``strategic plan for all phases of trust management to ensure 
the Secretary's trust responsibilities are properly 
discharged.'' Although the Secretary has indicated that the 
Department's July 1998 High Level Implementation Plan provides 
such a strategic plan, numerous individuals and entities have 
expressed strong reservations about the Plan.
      Based on these concerns, the Chairman of the Committee on 
Indian Affairs has indicated that he intends to make continued 
monitoring and compliance with the 1994 Act a significant part 
of the Committee's oversight efforts. The managers, therefore, 
are reserving judgment on futures appropriations. The managers 
expect the Department to ensure that the resources dedicated 
for purposes of trust improvements are indeed well spent in 
compliance with the 1994 Act.
      Section 3004.--The managers have included language as 
proposed by the Senate clarifying that the fiscal year 1999 
moratorium on new and expanded self-determination contracts 
applies only to the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Indian 
Health Service. The House had no similar provision.
      The managers have not included language as proposed by 
the Senate (section 2323) regarding Class III Indian gaming. 
The House had no similar provision.
      Section 3005.--The managers have included language as 
proposed by the Senate which requires that funds provided in 
fiscal year 1999 for the Borough of Ketchikan to participate in 
a cooperative study on the feasibility and dynamics of 
manufacturing veneer products in Southeast Alaska, including 
the establishment of a veneer operation in Ketchikan, shall be 
paid in lump sum and be considered adirect payment for the 
purposes of all applicable laws, but may not be used for lobbying. This 
section also includes language proposed by the Senate similarly 
treating payments to the City of Colorado Springs using funds 
previously appropriated for reconstruction of the Pike's Peak Summit 
House in Colorado. The House had no similar provisions.
      The House managers have not agreed to language proposed 
by the Senate (section 2328) banning implementation of 
regulations restricting fishing in Glacier Bay National Park 
pending the resolution of the State of Alaska's anticipated 
lawsuit concerning ownership and jurisdiction relating to 
Glacier Bay waters, so that provision has been deleted.
      Section 3006.--The managers have included a provisions 
restricting the implementation of the Department of the 
Interior Solicitor's opinion of November 7, 1997 concerning 
millsites under the general mining law with respect to the 
Crown Jewel project and to patent applications and plans of 
operation submitted prior to the date of enactment of this Act.
      The managers are very concerned about the effect of the 
Solicitor's opinion dealing with the implementation of the 
Mining Law of 1872 in that it limits the number of millsites to 
one five-acre millsite per patent. Executive Departments 
typically implement laws through regulation. The regulatory 
process allows all affected parties to express their views 
through an open, public comment process. In the case of a 
solicitor's opinion, there is no public comment or appeal 
process before implementation.
      This opinion is particularly troubling because both the 
Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service have been 
approving patents with more than one five-acre millsite per 
patent based on procedures outlined in their operations 
manuals. To ascertain the impact of this opinion, the managers 
direct the Department of the Interior and the Forest Service to 
provide a report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations no later than August 31, 1999. The report should 
detail by State all past, present and pending mining 
operations, including all grandfathered mineral patent 
applications and plans of operation, that could be impacted by 
the Solicitor's opinion of November 7, 1997.
      The managers considered but did not adopt a provision 
that would have prohibited the listing of the Alabama sturgeon 
under the Endangered Species Act and the designation of 
critical habitat for the balance of fiscal year 1999. The 
Director of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service has 
assured the managers that neither she nor the Secretary of the 
Interior will accelerate the decision process for this 
candidate species. The managers understand, based on a letter 
from the Director, that there are several other species ahead 
of the Alabama sturgeon in the processing queue for listing 
consideration and that a decision with the respect to the 
Alabama sturgeon will not be made prior to March 2000. The 
mangers expect the Secretary and the Service to live up to 
those commitments and to work carefully with the State on 
conservation planning efforts for the Alabama sturgeon.

                               CHAPTER 5

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

                        Office of the Secretary

                    general departmental management

      The conference agreement includes $1,000,000 to reduce 
the backlog of pending nursing home appeals before the 
Departmental Appeals Board. The Senate bill included $1,400,000 
for this purpose. The House did not include funding for this 
activity in its bill and the President did not request funding.

                        DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

                    Education for the Disadvantaged

      The conference agreement includes $56,377,000 for 
Concentration grants under the Title I program as a fiscal year 
2000 advance appropriation to become available on October 1, 
1999 for academic year 1999-2000.
      The conferences understand that the Department of 
Education has interpreted a ``hold harmless'' provision 
included in the fiscal year 1999 appropriations bill to apply 
only to school districts that first quality for Concentration 
grants on the basis of the percentage or number of poor 
children within the school district. Only after a school 
district meets the eligibility criteria would the Department 
apply the hold harmless and award the Concentration grant. 
Under the Department's interpretation, over 1500 school 
districts would lost their Title I Concentration grant in 
academic year 1999-2000.
      The conference agreement includes language that clarifies 
the fiscal year 1999 appropriations law to direct the 
Department of Education to hold harmless all school districts 
that received Title I Concentration grants in fiscal year 1998. 
The conference agreement further clarifies that the allocations 
made through applying this hold harmless will not be taken into 
account in determining allocations under other education 
programs that use the Title I formula as a basis for funding 
distribution. Neither the House nor the Senate bills contained 
these provisions.

                            Higher Education

                          (transfer of funds)

      The conference agreement transfers $1,500,000 from the 
Education Research, Statistics, and Improvement account to the 
Higher Education account to be used to provide funding for the 
University of the District of Columbia. UDC has recently 
qualified for funding under the Historically Black Colleges and 
Universities program and this funding level is the amount they 
are due under the HBCU funding formula.

                             RELATED AGENCY

                  Corporation for Public Broadcasting

      The conference agreement includes a total of $48,000,000 
in fiscal years 1999 and 2000, the same as the President's 
request, to enable National Public Radio, through the 
Corporation for Public Broadcasting, to proceed with contract 
negotiations for replacement satellite services. The agreement 
provides $30,700,000 in fiscal year 1999 and $17,300,000 in 
2000.
      The House bill provided $48,000,000 for the replacement 
satellite, with $30,600,000 made available in fiscal year 1999 
and the remainder in fiscal year 2000. The Senate provided 
$18,000,000 in fiscal year 1999 and report language stating 
that the balance of resources would be provided during the 
regular fiscal year 2000 appropriations process.

                    GENERAL PROVISION, THIS CHAPTER

               white river school district, south dakota

      The conference agreement includes bill language directing 
the Secretary of Education to provide, from unobligated 
balances in the Impact Aid program, not more than $239,000 to 
the White River School District #47-1, White River, South 
Dakota to repair damage caused by water infiltration at the 
White River High School. This provision is the same as in the 
Senate bill.
      The House bill contains no similar provision and the 
President did not request funding for this activity.

                               CHAPTER 6

                           LEGISLATIVE BRANCH

                        CONGRESSIONAL OPERATIONS

                        HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

                    salaries, officers and employees

                              (rescission)

      The conferees have included a rescission of funds of 
$3,521,000 and an appropriation of an identical amount to 
remain available until expended. This action will provide 
resources for replacing a House payroll system that cannot be 
completed in FY 1999.

                        ARCHITECT OF THE CAPITOL

                     Capitol Buildings and Grounds

                         House Office Buildings

                          house page dormitory

      The conferees have included $3,760,000 for the House Page 
Dormitory as contained in the House bill, amended to omit 
designation of a special location. If locations other than 501 
1st St., S.E., are taken under serious consideration, the 
Architect of the Capitol is directed to inform the Committee on 
Appropriations concerning cost and related considerations. It 
is expected that, in addition to the House Office Building 
Commission and the Page Board, the Architect of the Capitol 
will consult with the Committee on Appropriations, the 
Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and the 
Committee on House Administration on matters within their 
jurisdiction regarding the Page Dormitory project.

                     o'neill house office building

      The conferees have provided $1,800,000 for life safety 
renovations at the O'Neill House Office Building as contained 
in the House bill.

                       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS

      The conferees have included two administrative provisions 
as contained in the House bill. The conferees have added a 
provision regarding certain lump sum House leadership 
allowances.
      In addition, the conferees have established a pilot 
program in 1999 under the leadership of the Librarian of 
Congress to bring up to 3,000 emerging Russian political 
leaders to the United States for no more than 30 days each. The 
Senate is transferring $10 million of its own funds to finance 
the program during fiscal year 1999. The purpose of the program 
is to give Russian leaders from all levels of government first 
hand exposure to the American free market economic system and 
operation of American democratic institutions. Various local 
governments and organizations throughout the United States 
would be hosts to the Russians.
      The Librarian is given the authority to administer the 
program in the first year to expedite the establishment of the 
program. The President would designate an executive branch 
agency to administer the program in subsequent years.

                               CHAPTER 7

                         DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

                         Military Construction

      The conferees have provided a total of $31,400,000 for 
storm related damage to facilities and family housing 
improvements. Offsets to cover the cost of these are included 
in Title IV of this Act. The projects are as follows:

                        [In thousands of dollars]

Army National Guard: Tennessee, Jackson: Limited Army Aviation 
    Support Facility..........................................    $6,400
Family Housing, Army: Puerto Rico, Ft. Buchanan: Improve 215 
    units.....................................................    25,000

                               CHAPTER 8

           DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AND RELATED AGENCIES

                  National Transportation Safety Board

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement provides $2,300,000 for the 
National Transportation Safety Board for expenses resulting 
from the crash of TWA Flight 800. These funds will cover rental 
costs associated with the housing of the wreckage in Calverton, 
New York. The conferees do not plan to continue funding rental 
expenses at the Calverton facility in future fiscal years. The 
House and the Senate proposed no similar provision.

                               CHAPTER 9

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

                Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms

                         salaries and expenses

      The conferees agree to provide an appropriation of 
$4,500,000 for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms for 
the expansion of the National Tracing Center, to remain 
available until expended.

                          U.S. Postal Service

                  payments to the postal service fund

      The conferees agree to provide an appropriation of 
$29,000,000 for reimbursements to the Postal Service as 
authorized by 39 U.S.C. 2401(d), as proposed by the House 
instead of no appropriation, as proposed by the Senate.

    Executive Office of the President and Funds Appropriated to the 
                               President

                     federal drug control programs

                high intensity drug trafficking programs

      The conferees agree to provide an additional $2,500,000 
for the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas Program, instead 
of no appropriation, as proposed by the House and $1,250,000, 
as proposed by the Senate. The conferees direct that these 
funds be targeted as follows: $750,000 to the New Mexico HIDTA 
for Rio Arriba County, Santa Fe County, and San Juan County, 
New Mexico; $500,000 for national anti-methamphetamine efforts; 
$750,000 for the Arizona HIDTA to be provided to the U.S. 
Border Patrol for assistance in counterdrug efforts related to 
illegal immigration along the border in southern Cochise 
County, Arizona, subject to prior approval of the Committees on 
Appropriations; and $500,000 for the Washington-Baltimore HIDTA 
for support of the Cross-Border Initiative between Washington, 
DC and Prince George's County, Maryland. The conferees 
emphatically support linking funding to a program's 
performance, and therefore support evaluation efforts underway 
at ONDCP. Therefore, the conferees expect that the performance 
of the HIDTAs funded through this appropriation will be subject 
to the same performance standards and measures to be applied to 
the HIDTA program overall.

                               CHAPTER 10

              DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

                       Public and Indian Housing

                        housing certificate fund

      Deletes language proposed by the Senate delaying the 
availability of $350,000,000 for expiring or terminating 
section 8 contracts until October 1, 1999.

                   Community Planning and Development

                   community development block grants

      Inserts language reallocating $3,446,000 of unobligated, 
no-year funds in the CDBG account for which there is no 
identified use. HUD is directed to provide these funds for 
unfunded service coordinator programs that did not receive 
funding in the original Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA).

                     Federal Housing Administration

             fha--mutual mortgage insurance program account

      Increases the commitment level for the Federal Housing 
Administration's Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund from 
$110,000,000,000 to $140,000,000,000. The additional authority 
is needed because HUD projections indicate that the existing 
limitation could be exceeded before the end of the fiscal year.

                Government National Mortgage Association

guarantees of mortgage-backed securities loan guarantee program account

      Increases the commitment authority for the Government 
National Mortgage Association from $150,000,000,000 to 
$200,000,000,000. The additional authority is needed because 78 
percent of the existing authority has been committed, and HUD 
projects that the existing limitation could be exceeded before 
the end of the fiscal year.

                     Management and Administration

                         salaries and expenses

      Deletes language proposed by the Senate rescinding 
$3,400,000 from HUD's salaries and expenses account and 
transferring it to the CDBG account for service coordinators 
and congregate services.

                      Office of Inspector General

      Deletes bill language as proposed by the Senate. The 
conferees direct the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the 
General Accounting Office (GAO) to conduct an audit of HUD to 
assess the extent that HUD has been in compliance with the 
Department of Housing and Urban Reform Act of 1989 during the 
last two years. The conferees direct the OIG and GAO to produce 
a report on this matter within six months of enactment and a 
final report within 12 months of enactment, and to transmit 
them to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations.

                           INDEPENDENT AGENCY

                  National Credit Union Administration

                       central liquidity facility

      Inserts new language requiring that during fiscal year 
2000, gross obligations of the Central Liquidity Facility (CLF) 
for the principal amount of new direct loans to member credit 
unions shall not exceed the statutory limitation. The conferees 
take this action only to deal with the unlikely scenario that 
credit unions could experience excessive withdrawals as a 
result of the millennium date change and may need additional 
liquidity resources. Furthermore, the conferees intend that 
prudent and appropriate administrative remedies should be 
devised as quickly as possible by the National Credit Union 
Administration, working with the Federal Reserve and the 
Department of the Treasury, to guarantee that a strong safety 
net is in place to deal with any potentially unusual Y2K 
circumstances.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

      Inserts language proposed by the House for targeted 
economic initiatives to Project Restore and the Los Angeles 
City Civic Center Trust. The conferees have agreed to include a 
technical correction to language included in Public Law 105-276 
whichclarifies that $250,000 is for the Los Angeles Civic 
Center Public Partnership to revitalize the Civic Center neighborhood, 
and that $100,000 is for the Southeast Rio Vista Family YMCA to develop 
a child care center in Huntington Park, California. The Senate did not 
include a similar provision.
      Inserts new language clarifying that funds made available 
in Public Law 105-276 shall be made available to the Maryland 
Department of Housing and Community Development for work 
associated with building Caritas House and with expanding the 
St. Ann Adult Medical Day Care facility.
      Inserts new language allowing retention of land 
disposition proceeds associated with an Urban Renewal Project 
in the Township of North Union, Pennsylvania.
      Inserts language proposed by the Senate which clarifies 
that funds appropriated in Public Law 105-276 under the 
Environmental Protection Agency, State and Tribal Assistance 
Grants to meet sewer infrastructure needs associated with the 
2002 Winter Olympics shall be provided to Wasatch County, Utah, 
for both water and sewer infrastructure needs.
      Inserts language proposed by the Senate which transfers 
$1,300,000 of funds appropriated in Public Law 105-276 under 
the Environmental Protection Agency, Environmental Programs and 
Management for Project SEARCH, to State and Tribal Assistance 
Grants for Project SEARCH water and wastewater infrastructure 
needs in the State of Idaho through the Region IV Development 
Association in Twin Falls, Idaho.
      Inserts new language which clarifies that funds 
appropriated in Public Law 105-276 under the Environmental 
Protection Agency, State and Tribal Assistance Grants to meet 
wastewater infrastructure needs for Grand Isle, Louisiana, may 
also be used for drinking water supply needs.

                               CHAPTER 11

                     GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS TITLE

      Senate Section 2304. The conference agreement includes 
language proposed by the Senate clarifying administrative costs 
in the honey program, with a technical correction to a 
citation. The House had no similar provision.
      Senate Section 2309. The conference agreement does not 
include language to extend chapter 12 bankruptcy authorization 
as proposed by the Senate. The House had no similar provision. 
Similar language was enacted as part of Public Law 106-5.
      Senate Section 2310. The conference agreement includes 
language proposed by the Senate that amends the Consolidated 
Farm and Rural Development Act by deleting the statutory 
reference to the capital replacement reserve requirement for 
guaranteed farm loans, and by reinstating a statutory reference 
for a ten percent cash flow margin for restructuring direct 
farm loans. The House had no similar provision.
      Senate Section 2318 and House Section 2002. The 
conference agreement includes language proposed by both the 
House and the Senate regarding loan deficiency payments for 
club wheat producers.
      Senate Section 2322. The conference agreement does not 
include Section 2322, as proposed by the Senate, expressing the 
Sense of the Senate regarding a pending sale of wheat to Iran. 
The House had no similar provision. Recent actions by the 
Administration have addressed sanctions policy on commercial 
sales of agricultural commodities to certain countries, 
including Iran.
      Sec. 3021.--The conference agreement includes a 
provision, modified from language proposed in the Senate bill, 
allowing the Attorney General to transfer up to $4,300,000 from 
funds available to the Department of Justice to pay the 
remaining claims for restitution as required by the Civil 
Liberties Act of 1988, and as pursuant to the court order 
issued in the case of Carmen Mochizuki et al v. United States 
(case No. 97-294C, United States Court of Federal Claims). The 
conferees expect this provision to be implemented in accordance 
with sections 107 and 605 of the Departments of Commerce, 
Justice, and State, the Judiciary, and Related Agencies 
Appropriations Act, 1999. The House bill did not address this 
matter.
      Sec. 3022.--The conference agreement includes a 
provision, slightly modified from language included in the 
Senate bill, to prohibit the taking of Cook Inlet beluga whales 
under the Marine Mammal Protection Act prior to October 1, 
2000, unless pursuant to a cooperative agreement between the 
National Marine Fisheries Service and affected Alaska Native 
organizations. The House bill did not contain a similar 
provision.
      Sec. 3023.--The conference agreement includes a provision 
repealing Section 626 of the Departments of Commerce, Justice, 
and State, the Judiciary, and Related Agencies Appropriations 
Act, 1999 to provide full year availability for appropriations 
provided in that Act. Neither the House nor Senate bills 
addressed this matter.
      Sec. 3024.--The conference agreement includes a provision 
to allow the payment of available funds to facilitate the 
payment of grants to victim service organizations and public 
agencies that will provide emergency or ongoing assistance to 
the victims of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 and their 
families. The provision would include assistance to family 
members for travel to the Netherlands for the trial of the 
defendants in the bombing case. Neither the House nor Senate 
bills addressed this matter.
      Sec. 3025.--The conference agreement includes a 
provision, not included in the House bill, to modify section 
617 of the Departments of Commerce, Justice, and State, the 
Judiciary, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1999, to 
make permanent the moratorium on the entry of new factory 
trawlers into the Atlantic herring and mackerel fishery until 
certain actions are taken by the appropriate fishery management 
councils.
      The conference agreement includes a provision proposed in 
the House bill, and not included in the Senate bill, amending 
the Departments of Commerce, Justice, and State, the Judiciary, 
and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1999, to extend the 
availability of funds included for the Commission on Holocaust 
Assets in the United States to September 30, 2000.
      The conference agreement includes a provision, modified 
from language proposed in the Senate bill, making technical 
corrections to the American Fisheries Act (Title II, Division C 
of Public Law 105-277).
      The conference agreement includes a provision, modified 
from language proposed in the Senate bill, which makes 
corrections to section 113 of the Departments of Commerce, 
Justice, and State, the Judiciary, and Related Agencies 
Appropriations Act, 1999, relating to eligibility of Alaska 
Native organizations for Department of Justice grants.
      The conferees agree to retain section 3029, as proposed 
by the Senate, which authorizes the use of funds received 
pursuant to housing claims for construction of an access road 
and for real property maintenance projects at Ellsworth Air 
Force Base.

                      DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE--CIVIL

                           Corps of Engineers

                   operation and maintenance, general

      The conference agreement includes language proposed by 
the Senate directing a statutory reprogramming of $800,000 for 
preliminary work associated with a transfer of Federal lands to 
certain tribes and the State of South Dakota and for cultural 
resource protection activities, amended to delete language 
proposed by the Senate providing funds to the Lower Brule Sioux 
Tribe and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe.

 PROHIBITION ON TREATING ANY FUNDS RECOVERED FROM TOBACCO COMPANIES AS 
              AN OVERPAYMENT FOR THE PURPOSES OF MEDICAID

      The conference agreement includes language proposed by 
the Senate which amends section 1903(d)(3) of the Social 
Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1396b(d)(3)) to prohibit any Medicaid-
related funds recovered or paid to a State as part of a 
settlement or judgment reached in litigation the State 
initiated or pursued against one or more tobacco companies 
being treated as an overpayment for purposes of the Medicaid 
statute. The House bill contained no similar provision.
      The conferees recognize that, absent Congressional 
action, the issue of the Federal share of funds recovered under 
such settlements or judgments would be subject to litigation 
over the next several years, delaying the availability of these 
funds and putting planned State uses on hold. The conferees 
have adopted the Senate language in order to permit States 
which are delaying their plans for the use of these funds the 
certainty they need to plan their initiatives. The conferees 
encourage the States to use a significant portion of any 
tobacco settlement or judgment on smoking cessation and 
prevention programs, as well as other critical public health 
programs, such as expanding health care benefits to low income 
children and adults.

 Findings and Sense of Senate Regarding Sequential Billing Policy for 
            Home Health Payments Under the Medicare Program

      The conference agreement does not contain a Sense of the 
Senate provision regarding the sequential billing policy for 
home health payments under Medicare as proposed by the Senate.
      The Balanced Budget Act of 1997 shifted funding for 
certain home health visits under Medicare from part A (Hospital 
Insurance) to part B (Medical Insurance). In a Sense of the 
Senate resolution, included in the Senate bill, the Senate 
indicated that certain Health Care Financing Administration 
regulations and administrative decisions have slowed down 
claims processing resulting in the financial hardship and 
closing of home health agencies.
      The House bill contained no similar provision.

                            Firefighters Pay

      The conferees agree to include a provision making a 
technical change to the treatment of firefighters under section 
628(f) of the fiscal year 1999 Treasury and General Government 
Appropriations Act, as proposed by the Senate, instead of no 
provision, as proposed by the House.

                 Howell T. Heflin Post Office Building

      The conferees agree to a provision designating a United 
States Postal Service facility under construction at Tuscumbia, 
Alabama as the ``Howell T. Heflin Post Office Building''.

                        San Joaquin, California

      The conferees agree to include language which corrects 
the terms of a land conveyance in San Joaquin, California that 
was included in Public Law 105-277.

                        Fergus Falls, Minnesota

      The conferees agree to direct the Administrator of the 
General Services Administration to purchase from the Postal 
Service the building in Fergus Falls, Minnesota where the U.S. 
Bankruptcy Court and the U.S. District Court sit.

                   TITLE IV--RESCISSIONS AND OFFSETS

                          Farm Service Agency

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$20,000,000 from unobligated balances under this heading, as

     state unemployment insurance and employment service operations

      The conference agreement includes a reduction in this 
account of $22,400,000, instead of $21,000,000 as proposed by 
the House and $17,400,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      The agreement includes a reduction of $17,400,000 from 
the Unemployment Insurance Contingency Account, the same level 
as the Senate. The House bill reduced this account by 
$16,000,000 and the President requested a reduction of 
$5,700,000.
      The agreement also includes a reduction of $5,000,000 
from the Unemployment Insurance Postage account, the same level 
as in the House bill. The President did not request a reduction 
in this account and the Senate did not include one in its bill.

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

              Health Resources and Services Administration

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$2,800,000 from the Federal Capital Loan Program for Nursing, 
the same level as in the House bill. The President requested no 
rescission from this account and the Senate did not include a 
rescission in its bill. The amounts rescinded are unobligated 
balances in an account that has been inactive for more than 
eight years.

                        DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

                              (rescission)

      The conference agreement rescinds $6,500,000 from this 
account, instead of $6,800,000 as proposed by the House and 
$8,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The President proposed no 
rescission for this account. The $6,500,000 will be taken from 
funds which the Administration has indicated are in excess of 
what is necessary for an evaluation of voluntary national test 
development.

                         DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

                         Military Construction

                             (rescissions)

      The conferees recommend rescissions totaling $31,400,000 
in fiscal year 1999 funds. These reflect inflation and foreign 
currency fluctuation savings of $25,000,000 and $6,400,000 from 
the Base Realignment and Closure Account, Part IV.

                      DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

                     Federal Transit Administration

                  trust fund share of transit programs

                          (highway trust fund)

                 (Rescission of contract authorization)

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$665,000 in contract authority from the trust fund share of

                  interstate transfer grants--transit

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$600,000 in unobligated balances of interstate transfer 
grants--transit, as proposed by the House. The Senate bill 
contained no similar rescission. The conferees direct the 
Federal Transit Administration to reduce only those available 
balances for projects for which funds were allocated before 
fiscal year 1995.

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

                Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms

                         salaries and expenses

      The conferees agree to a provision rescinding $4,500,000 
from amounts previously made available under this heading in 
Public Law 105-277 for the expansion of the National Tracing 
Center.

    Executive Office of the President and Funds Appropriated to the 
                               President

                          unanticipated needs

      The conferees agree to include a rescission of 
$10,000,000 from amounts previously appropriated under this 
heading in Public Law 101-130, the Fiscal Year 1990 Dire 
Emergency Supplemental to Meet the Needs of Natural Disasters 
of National Significance, as proposed by the House, instead of 
no rescission, as proposed by the Senate.

                     Federal Drug Control Programs

                        special forfeiture fund

      The conferees agree to include no rescission from the 
Special Forfeiture Fund, as proposed by the House, instead of a 
rescission of $1,250,000, as proposed by the Senate.

              DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

                       Public and Indian Housing

               annual contributions for assisted housing

                              (rescission)

      Inserts new language rescinding $350,000,000 in 
unobligated and unexpended section 8 recaptures. Because the 
section 8 renewal account was fully funded in fiscal year 1999, 
these funds are not necessary during the current fiscal year.
      In fiscal year 2000, section 8 renewal needs are 
$13,522,000,000. As proposed by the President, these recaptured 
funds could offset the fiscal year 2000 request, thereby 
reducing the total appropriation for fiscal year 2000. Clearly, 
the conferees understand that the section 8 renewal account 
must be fully funded in order to protect the homes of those 
families who rely on this assistance.

                   Community Planning and Development

                   community development block grants

                              (rescission)

      Rescinds $230,000,000 of unobligated balances for 
disaster relief instead of $313,600,000, as proposed by the 
Senate. The House did not include a similar provision. The 
conferees note that funds have been included in FEMA's account 
to deal with issues relating to disaster relief. The Department 
is directed to award the remaining funds in accordance with 
announcements made heretofore by the Secretary, including 
allocations made pursuant to the March 10, 1999 notice 
published in the Federal Register, as expeditiously as 
possible.

                     GENERAL PROVISION--THIS TITLE

      Senate Section 3001. The conference agreement does not 
include language proposed by the Senate repealing Division B, 
title V, chapter 1 of Public Law 105-277 providing emergency 
appropriations to the Agricultural Research Service for 
counter-narcotics research proposed by the Senate. The House 
had no similar provision. The conference agreement rescinds 
$22,466,000 of these funds, reflecting the obligation of 
$534,000 of these monies. Additional provisions regarding 
counter-narcotics research are included elsewhere in this 
report.

                                TITLE V

                         Technical Corrections

      The conference agreement includes four technical 
corrections related to the Agriculture portion of Public Law 
105-277 proposed by both the House and the Senate, with 
modifications.
      House Section 3002. The conference agreement does not 
include language proposed by the House extending the 
availability of counter-drug research funds. The Senate had no 
similar provision.
      The conference agreement includes four technical 
corrections to the fiscal year 1999 Appropriations Act for the 
Department of the Interior and Related Agencies as proposed by 
the Senate. The House had similar provisions for three of these 
corrections. The Senate added a provision revising an earmark 
in the Operation of Indian Programs account.
      The conference agreement deletes a provision included in 
both the House and Senate versions of the bill regarding design 
of a CD ROM product.
      The conferees have included two technical corrections as 
contained in the House bill and the Senate amendment for the 
Legislative Branch.
      The conferees have included language, proposed by the 
Senate, which makes a technical correction to the Omnibus 
Consolidated and Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, 
1999 (Public Law 105-277) under the heading ``Family Housing, 
Navy and Marine Corps'' to include Hurricane George.
      The conference agreement includes a provision proposed by 
the Senate that clarifies the scope of certain bus and bus 
facilities projects contained in the Federal Transit 
Administration's capital investment grants program in fiscal 
year 1999. The House bill contained no similar provision. The 
conferees direct that funds provided for the Canton-Akron-
Cleveland commuter rail project in the Department of 
Transportation and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for 
fiscal year 1999 shall be available for the purchase of rights-
of-way in addition to conducting a major investment study to 
examine the feasibility of establishing commuter rail service.
      The conference agreement includes a provision proposed by 
the Senate that increases the obligation limitation for the 
federal-aid highways ferry boat and terminal program in fiscal 
year 1999 from $38,000,000 to $59,290,000 to reflect the sum of 
both fiscal years 1998 and 1999 program funding levels. The 
House bill contained no similar provision.
      The conferees have agreed to include a technical 
correction to the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 as 
proposed by the Senate. The House had no similar provision.

                 TITLE VI--GENERAL PROVISIONS, THIS ACT

      The conference agreement includes provisions which extend 
the Federal Aviation Administration's airport improvement 
program (AIP) and war risk insurance program through August 6, 
1999 at the same rate as included in the Department of 
Transportation and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1999. 
Under current law, the authorization for the AIP program will 
expire on May 31, 1999.
      It is the conferees' understanding that this provision 
will cause no increase in fiscal year 1999 budget authority or 
outlays. The conference agreement also includes provisions 
releasing an additional $30,000,000 in passenger facility fee/
airport development project grant funding to the Metropolitan 
Washington Airports Authority to continue the authority's 
capital development programs. The Senate bill proposed to 
extend the airport improvement program and the war risk 
insurance program through May 31, 1999. The house bill 
contained no similar provisions.
      The conference agreement includes a provision proposed by 
the Senate that extends the Secretary of Transportation's 
authority to set Alaskan mail rates. The House bill contained 
no similar provision.
      The conference agreement deletes a provision proposed by 
the House that would have made funds available to continue the 
national advanced driving simulator in fiscal year 1999 from 
funds previously appropriated to the National Highway Traffic 
Safety Administration. The Senate bill contained no similar 
provision. The provision is no longer necessary as funding to 
continue the national advanced driving simulator in fiscal year 
1999 was addressed in a reprogramming recently approved by the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations.
      The conference agreement includes a provision proposed by 
the House that re-designates a section number in the 
Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century. The Senate bill 
contained no similar provision.
      The conferees agree to retain section 6004, as proposed 
by the House, which expresses the sense of the Congress that 
there be parity in the adjustments to compensation between 
military personnel and civilian employees.
      The conference agreement deletes language proposed by the 
Senate providing relief to certain natural gas producers in 
Kansas.
