                                TITLE IX

         WAIVER OF CERTAIN SANCTIONS AGAINST INDIA AND PAKISTAN

    (a) Waiver Authority.--Except as provided in subsections 
(b) and (c) of this section, the President may waive, with 
respect to India and Pakistan, the application of any sanction 
contained in section 101 or 102 of the Arms Export Control Act 
(22 U.S.C. 2799aa or 22 U.S.C. 2799aa-1), section 2(b)(4) of 
the Export Import Bank Act of 1945 (12 U.S.C. 635(b)(4)), or 
section 620E(e) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as 
amended, (22 U.S.C. 2375(e)).
    (b) Exception.--The authority to waive the application of a 
sanction or prohibition (or portion thereof) under subsection 
(a) shall not apply with respect to a sanction or prohibition 
contained in subparagraph (B), (C), or (G) of section 102(b)(2) 
of the Arms Export Control Act, unless the President 
determines, and so certifies to Congress, that the application 
of the restriction would not be in the national security 
interests of the United States.
    (c) Termination of Waiver.--The President may not exercise 
the authority of subsection (a), and any waiver previously 
issued under subsection (a) shall cease to apply, with respect 
to India or Pakistan, if that country detonates a nuclear 
explosive device after the date of enactment of this act or 
otherwise takes such action which would cause the President to 
report pursuant to section 102(b)(1) of the Arms Export Control 
Act.
    (d) Targeted Sanctions.--
            (1) Sense of the congress.--
                    (A) It is the sense of the Congress that 
                the broad application of export controls to 
                nearly 300 Indian and Pakistani entities is 
                inconsistent with the specific national 
                security interests of the United States and 
                that this control list requires refinement; and
                    (B) export controls should be applied only 
                to those Indian and Pakistani entities that 
                make direct and material contributions to 
                weapons of mass destruction and missile 
                programs and only to those items that can 
                contribute to such programs.
            (2) Reporting requirement.--Not later than 60 days 
        after the date of enactment of this Act, the President 
        shall submit both a classified and unclassified report 
        to the appropriate congressional committees listing 
        those Indian and Pakistani entities whose activities 
        contribute to missile programs or weapons of mass 
        destruction programs.
    (e) Congressional Notification.--The issuance of a license 
for export of a defense article, defense service, or technology 
under the authority of this section shall be subject to the 
same requirements as are applicable to the export of items 
described in section 36(c) of the Arms Export Control Act (22 
U.S.C. 2776(c)), including the transmittal of information and 
the application of congressional review procedures.
    (f) Repeal.--The India-Pakistan Relief Act (title IX of the 
Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, 
and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1999, as contained in 
section 101(a) of Public Law 105-277) is repealed effective 
October 21, 1999.
    This Act may be cited as the ``Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2000''.
        And the Senate agree to the same.

                                Managers on the Part of the Senate.

                      JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

      The managers on the part of the House and the Senate at 
the conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on 
the amendment of the Senate to the bill (H.R. 2561), making 
appropriations for the Department of Defense for the fiscal 
year ending September 30, 2000, and for other purposes, submit 
the following joint statement to the House and the Senate in 
explanation of the effect of the action agreed upon by the 
managers and recommended in the accompanying conference report.
      The conference agreement on the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2000, incorporates some of the provisions 
of both the House and Senate versions of the bill. The language 
and allocations set forth in House Report 106-244 and Senate 
Report 106-53 should be complied with unless specifically 
addressed in the accompanying bill and statement of the 
managers to the contrary.
      Senate Amendment: The Senate deleted the entire House 
bill after the enacting clause and inserted the Senate bill. 
The conference agreement includes a revised bill.

              Definition of Program, Project, and Activity

      The conferees agree that for the purposes of the Balanced 
Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (Public Law 
99-177) as amended by the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
Control Reaffirmation Act of 1987 (Public Law 100-119) and by 
the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-508), the 
term program, project, and activity for appropriations 
contained in this Act shall be defined as the most specific 
level of budget items identified in the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2000, the accompanying House and Senate 
Committee reports, the conference report and accompanying joint 
explanatory statement of the managers of the Committee of 
Conference, the related classified annexes and reports, and the 
P-1 and R-1 budget justification documents as subsequently 
modified by Congressional action. The following exception to 
the above definition shall apply:
      For the Military Personnel and the Operation and 
Maintenance accounts, the term ``program, project, and 
activity'' is defined as the appropriations accounts contained 
in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act. At the time 
the President submits his budget for fiscal year 2001, the 
conferees direct the Department of Defense to transmit to the 
congressional defense committees budget justification documents 
to be known as the ``M-1'' and ``O-1'' which shall identify, at 
the budget activity, activity group, and subactivity group 
level, the amounts requested by the President to be 
appropriated to the Department of Defense for operation and 
maintenance in any budget request, or amended budget request, 
for fiscal year 2001.

                  congressional special interest items

      The conferees direct that projects for which funds are 
provided as indicated in the tables or paragraphs of the 
Conference Report in any appropriation account are special 
interest items for the purpose of preparation of the DD Form 
1414. The conferees also direct that the funding adjustments 
outlined in the tables shall be provided only for the specific 
purposes outlined in the table.

                      Title I--Military Personnel

      The conferees agree to the following amounts for the 
Military Personnel accounts:

                   pay increase and retirement reform

      The conferees recommend an increase of $165,000,000 to 
the Active, Reserve, and Guard Military Personnel accounts to 
provide for a 4.8 percent military pay raise, effective January 
1, 2000. This is an increase of 0.4 percent over the budget 
request of 4.4 percent. In addition, the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2000 revised the budget's 
legislative proposal to repeal the Redux retirement system 
which results in savings to the personnel accounts. 
Accordingly, the conferees recommend a total reduction of 
$136,000,000 to the Active, Reserve, and Guard Military 
Personnel accounts for modifications to the 1986 Military 
Retirement Reform Act.

                    personnel underexecution savings

      The conferees recommend a total reduction of $219,000,000 
to the Active Military Personnel accounts due to lower than 
budgeted fiscal year 1999 end strengths, and differences in the 
actual grade mix of officers and enlisted recommended in the 
budget request. The General Accounting Office estimates that 
the active components will have approximately 9,700 fewer 
personnel on board to begin fiscal year 2000, and as a result, 
the fiscal year 2000 pay and allowances requirements for 
personnel are incorrect and the budgets overstated.

                        force structure changes

      The conferees recommend a total of $103,600,000 in the 
Military Personnel and Operation and Maintenance accounts for 
force structure that was not included in the budget request, as 
follows:

                        dfas salary misalignment

      At the request of the Air Force, the conferees recommend 
realigning $39,200,000 from ``Military Personnel, Air Force'' 
to ``National Guard Personnel, Air Force'' due to a Defense 
Finance and Accounting Service error involving Air Force 
personnel salaries.

                   basic allowance for housing reform

      The conferees recommend an increase of $100,000,000 
across the Active Military Personnel accounts for Basic 
Allowance for Housing (BAH) reform. The additional funds will 
allow the Department to complete the transition phase of BAH 
reform, as directed by the National Defense Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2000.

                      army contingency operations

      The conferees recommend a reduction of $80,000,000 to 
``Military Personnel, Army'' to reflect the reduced U.S. troop 
levels in Bosnia, and the associated military personnel pay and 
allowance costs requested in the fiscal year 2000 budget 
request.

                        recruiting and retention

      The conferees recommend an additional $399,200,000 in the 
Military Personnel and Operation and Maintenance accounts to 
support the Department's recruiting, advertising, and retention 
programs. The conferees are aware that some of the Services are 
experiencing difficulty in meeting accession goals and that 
first and second term retention rates, along with pilot 
retention rates, are of major concern. Therefore, the conferees 
recommend additional funds to improve the Services' recruiting 
and retention efforts in the following programs:

                       National Guard RAID Teams

      The conferees support the establishment of 17 Rapid 
Assessment and Initial Detection (RAID) teams. Accordingly, the 
conferees provided funding for an additional 198 Army National 
Guard and 66 Air National Guard full-time (AGR) personnel to 
facilitate this mission. Operation and maintenance funding of 
$79,635,000 for RAID teams is provided within the amounts

                       Army National Guard Center

      The conferees understand that the armory used by 
Headquarters, 53rd Support Battalion, Army National Guard is in 
extensive need of repair and renovation. The conferees have 
provided additional funds for Real Property Maintenance for the 
Army National Guard's backlog of repair and maintenance 
projects, and directs that $1,000,000 be designated for repair

                         arms control programs

      The conferees have agreed to reduce funding for certain 
arms control activities in the Army and the Air Force. If 
additional funds prove necessary to meet emergent requirements 
stemming from valid treaty obligations, the conferees expect 
the Department of Defense to submit a reprogramming request 
subject to normal, prior approval reprogramming procedures.

                          combating terrorism

      Within the operation and maintenance appropriations, the 
conferees have provided significant resources for the 
antiterrorism activities of the Department. No later than June 
30, 2000, the Secretary of Defense shall submit to the 
congressional defense committees a report which describes the 
use of all funds appropriated for combating terrorism 
activities.

                        homestead air force base

      It has been more than seven years since the devastation 
of Homestead Air Force Base by Hurricane Andrew. The region was 
further impacted by the subsequent decision of the Base 
Realignment and Closure Commission to close and realign the 
installation in 1993. This, coupled with the delay in economic 
redevelopment, has created a devastating economic impact 
throughout the local area. This region is also experiencing 
extremely high unemployment rates far above the national 
average. The conferees recognize these adverse economic 
conditions and urge the Air Force to expeditiously complete 
requisite environmental studies prior to conveying certain real 
property parcels on the installation to facilitate interim use 
activities that will benefit the local economy.

                     dod worker safety enhancement

      The conferees are frustrated by the Department's poor 
record on safety and worker incident rates relative to private 
industry and other federal agencies. Accordingly, the conferees 
direct the Department to initiate programs funded from within 
existing Operation and Maintenance accounts at designated DOD 
facilities that employ alternative, private sector proven, 
models of safety to determine the best way to improve the 
Department's record with respect to injury incidence rates and 
associated costs.

                         railroad safety study

      The conferees direct the Corps of Engineers to study the 
feasibility of realigning the railroad tracks between Fort 
Wainwright and Eielson Air Force Base to improve the overall 
safety and efficiency of the line. The report should be 
provided to the Committees on Appropriations no later than June 
15, 2000.

                       small business advertising

      The conferees understand that there are many qualified 
minority-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, and small 
businesses that design and place advertising and advertising 
campaigns, which can assist the Department in its recruiting 
efforts using print, electronic, and the radio media. The 
conferees believe these firms can provide valuable new insights 
and expertise to service wide recruiting programs. The 
conferees expect the Department to increase the use of these 
qualified businesses in the initiation, design and placement of 
its advertising in the print, radio and electronic media.

                     defense acquisition university

      From within the funds provided for the Defense 
Acquisition University, up to $5,000,000 may be spent on a 
pilot program using state-of-the-art training technology that 
would train the acquisition workforce in a simulated government 
procurement environment.

                        civil/military programs

      The conferees recommend a total of $88,803,000 for the 
Department's civil/military programs for fiscal year 2000 as 
shown below. The conferees direct the Department to report to 
the Committees on Appropriations on the status of the 
obligation of these funds not later than March 15, 2000.

                         [Dollars in thousands]

                    ____________________________________________________

      Total...................................................    88,803

                         improved cargo methods

      The conferees recommend $4,000,000, only to test, develop 
and implement cost saving opportunities identified in ongoing 
studies of private sector logistics technology, practices and 
procedures to move military cargo more cheaply, with greater 
speed and with greater reliability. To ensure diverse views of 
the state of the art in third party logistics management and 
other emerging techniques are brought to bear, the conferees 
intend that these funds be used to provide the Government 
access to a range of qualified organizations or entities having 
detailed knowledge of commercial logistics processes that may 
have value for the military.

                         child care facilities

      The conferees are concerned that service members in some 
career fields with extended duty requirements are experiencing 
problems with access to day care facilities. The conferees 
direct the Department to report, no later than April 1, 2000, 
on the day care access policies of the various services, with 
particular attention to the problems generated by extended duty 
requirements.
      In addition, the conferees direct the Department to 
review how the Services could expand the use of the Family 
Child Care subsidy program. The report should include options 
to address the needs of families who require extended hours of 
child care as a result of irregular duty hours or temporary 
duty deployments, and the costs associated with any such policy 
changes.

                         unallocated reductions

      The House report included language in Operation and 
Maintenance, Defense-wide, specifically exempting the Joint 
Vision 2010 initiative and the Office of Net Assessment from 
any unallocated reductions. The Senate had no such provision. 
The House recedes to the Senate.

                     armed forces retirement homes

      The conferees provide $5,000,000 to be available for real 
property maintenance and repair requirements at the Armed 
Forces Retirement Homes.

                  pacific command regional initiative

      The conferees agree to provide $10,000,000 to be 
available for the U.S. Pacific Command to enhance regional 
cooperation, military training, readiness and exercises. The 
Commander in Chief, U.S. Pacific Command, shall report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on plans and 
priorities to utilize these funds to achieve key mission 
readiness and warfighting priorities not later than December 1, 
1999.

              study group on multilateral export controls

      The conferees direct that the Department convene a Study 
Group of senior-level executive branch and congressional 
officials, as well as outside experts, to develop the framework 
for a new effective, COCOM-like agreement that would regulate

             overseas contingency operations transfer fund

      The conferees agree to provide $1,722,600,000 for the 
Overseas Contingency Operations Transfer Fund. This amount 
provides for continuing operations in Bosnia and Southwest Asia 
and takes into account amounts which carry over due to the 
early cessation of the air campaign in Kosovo.

          united states court of appeals for the armed forces

      The conference agreement provides $7,621,000 for the 
United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

         environmental restoration, formerly used defense sites

      The conference agreement provides $239,214,000 for 
Environmental Restoration, Formerly Used Defense Sites.

                       Environmental Contracting

      The conferees are concerned about the effect of the 
Department's use of large indefinite delivery-indefinite 
quantity (IDIQ) contracts on small businesses. Therefore, the 
conferees included a general provision (Section 8130) which 
directs that not more than 35 percent of the funds obligated by 
the Department of Defense for environmental remediation shall 
be executed through IDIQ contracts with a total contract amount 
of $130,000,000. Furthermore, the conferees direct that the 
Secretary of Defense provide a report to the congressional 
defense committees no later than January 15, 2000 on the 
Department's use of IDIQ contracts during fiscal year 1999 and 
that this information be provided quarterly throughout fiscal 
year 2000. The January 15th report should also include an 
analysis comparing IDIQ contracts with other contract options 
in terms of cost, involvement of small businesses, and the 
inclusion of local companies.

                      Joliet Army Ammunition Plant

      The Department of the Army manufactured munitions and 
explosives at the Joliet Ammunition Plant from the 1940s until 
approximately 1976. Portions of the property became heavily 
contaminated as a result of this use. The U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency listed a portion of the arsenal on the 
National Priority List in 1987. In consultation with the U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency and the Illinois Environmental 
Protection Agency, the Army developed a Record of Decision 
(ROD) outlining the remediation of the arsenal. The Army and 
the Joliet Arsenal Development Authority continue to work 
closely to better coordinate those issues concerning the Army's 
cleanup of the Joliet Arsenal. The conferees strongly encourage 
the Army to continue to fully support the cleanup and 
conversion projects at this site and ensure the cleanup is 
completed in a timely manner.

                       Iowa Army Ammunition Plant

      The Secretary of the Army shall conduct a review of past 
nuclear weapons activities of the Iowa Army Ammunition Plant in 
order to determine possible environmental contamination, and 
possible exposure of former nuclear weapons workers and the 
local community to such activities. This review shall be 
conducted in coordination with the Department of Energy and 
provided to the congressional defense committees not later than 
June 15, 2000.

                   Massachusetts Military Reservation

      The conferees are aware that the Massachusetts Military 
Reservation (MMR) located on Cape Cod, Massachusetts is 
undergoing extensive environmental characterization and 
remediation. The portion of MMR leased to the Army and licensed 
back to Massachusetts for training and support of the MA Army 
National Guard, known as Camp Edwards, is subject to two 
administrative orders issued in 1997 by the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency--Region 1 under the authority of the Safe 
Drinking Water Act. Those orders specifically require 
characterization activities at and near the training range/
impact area at Camp Edwards to determine the impact of 
military-related activities on the underlying groundwater. In 
order to facilitate compliance with those orders, the conferees 
include a general provision (Section 8154) that provides for 
the use of funds appropriated to Operation and Maintenance, 
Army to pay for costs associated with such characterization and 
any ensuing remediation.

                                El Toro

      The conferees are concerned about the status of the 
former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro and encourage the 
Department to take all necessary environmental remediation 
measures.

                                Newmark

      The conferees continue to have serious concern about the 
Department's failure to respond at a senior level to 
groundwater contamination at the Newmark and Muscoy Superfund 
sites in California. The conferees understand that both the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the City of San 
Bernardino believe that the contamination is a direct result of 
industrial waste from Camp Ono, a World War II depot and 
maintenance facility. The EPA has reported that there is ``no 
other reasonable source for the contamination,'' than the 
former Army base, and, more recently, that the Army is ``a 
likely source of the contamination.''
      Report language in the conference reports accompanying 
the fiscal year 1997 and 1998 Defense Appropriations Bills 
highlighted the urgency of this program and requested adequate 
funding and prompt action by the Department to remediate this 
site. The conferees are disappointed with the Department's 
response. The Department has effectively ignored a September, 
1998 court order to mediate the dispute. The conferees are 
particularly concerned by the Department's lack of a response 
to the conferees November, 1998 request for senior-level 
mediation involving the Department and the Environmental 
Protection Agency. As a result, the conferees strongly believe 
that the Department should, within 60 days of enactment of this 
Act, initiate senior-level mediation in this matter with the 
EPA, the City of San Bernardino, and the State of California 
and report to the congressional defense committees fully 
explaining the Department's plan to reach a timely resolution 
to this matter.

             overseas humanitarian, disaster, and civic aid

      The conference agreement provides $55,800,000 for 
Overseas Humanitarian, Disaster, and Civic Aid.

                  former soviet union threat reduction

      The conference agreement provides $460,500,000 for the 
Former Soviet Union Threat Reduction program.

                          reprogramming policy

      The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense not to 
implement any reprogramming actions (including notification 
reprogram-
mings) submitted to the congressional defense committees unless 
the Committees on Appropriations communicate approval of the 
reprogrammings. This direction applies to all defense accounts.

                       interim contractor support

      The conference agreement retains funding in Air Force 
procurement accounts for Interim Contractor Support (ICS) for 
Fiscal Year 2000. For the C-17, E-8, and B-2 programs, the 
conferees provided ICS funding in separate procurement line-
items to facilitate better oversight in Congress and in the 
Department of Defense of the large levels of ICS in these 
programs. These line-items are subject to the same 
reprogramming procedures as other line-items in these accounts. 
The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to ensure 
procurement programs expeditiously transition these efforts to 
operation and maintenance accounts. In particular, the 
conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to transition C-17 
ICS (known as Flexible Sustainment) to the operations and 
maintenance account in the fiscal year 2001 budget submission. 
The conferees further direct that ICS be clearly identified in 
procurement budget documentation.

                            patriot upgrade

      The conferees have provided $50,840,000 for the Patriot 
missile upgrade program, an increase of $20,000,000 only for a 
service life extension program. The conferees direct that none 
of the additional funds may be obligated until the Secretary of 
Defense provides an assessment of various Patriot missile 
modification programs, including, but not limited to, the 
Patriot Anti-Cruise Missile and the GEM upgrade programs. The 
assessment is to include the capability of each system against 
all potential target sets, to include cruise missiles and the 
development and acquisition costs associated with each 
modification program. Thirty days after the Secretary's 
findings are submitted to the defense committees, the funds may 
be used to upgrade/extend the life of Patriot missiles in the 
Army inventory.

                                javelin

      The conferees agree to provide the authority for the Army 
to enter into a Javelin multi-year contract. However, the 
conferees direct that the Army may not enter into such a 
contract until thirty days after the Secretary of Defense 
certifies the quantities purchased are correct and that any 
outstanding technical and manufacturing issues have been 
resolved and tested.

                               starstreak

      The conferees urge the Department of the Army to 
reprogram the funds necessary to complete a live fire, side-by-
side operational test and evaluation of the air-to-air 
Starstreak and air-to-air Stinger missiles fired from the AH-
64D Apache helicopter.

               abrams tank upgrade multi-year procurement

      With some reluctance, the conferees have approved the 
Army's request to renew multi-year procurement authority to 
continue the M1A2 Abrams tank upgrade program subject to the 
condition described below. The conferees seriously question the 
Army's proposal to enter a new follow-on multi-year agreement 
that would increase the average unit cost of a tank upgrade (M1 
to M1A2 SEP) from $5.6 million per tank in FY 1999 to $6.7 
million per tank starting in FY 2001. The conferees note that, 
in general, the trend throughout the Department has been that 
follow-on multi-year agreements show significant unit price 
decreases as production efficiencies improve and mature. While 
much of the cost increase for this program can be attributed to 
lower planned production rates, the conferees remain puzzled 
why greater efforts have not been made to lower unit costs, 
especially when the cost of this upgrade now threatens to equal 
the cost of procuring a new tank.
      The conferees agree that the Army shall not enter into a 
new multi-year procurement agreement for the M1A2 SEP program 
until it has conducted a detailed and thorough reexamination of 
the costs of this program and has reevaluated the overall 
program structure in light of the Army's ongoing reevaluation 
of its overall modernization strategy and plan. The conference 
agreement therefore restricts approval of the new MYP agreement 
until 30 days after the Army has submitted a report to Congress 
detailing the results of its M1A2 SEP cost and program 
structure review. The conferees expect this report to:
            Describe renewed efforts by the Army and by 
        industry to reduce production cost in all areas;
            Recommend ways to improve cost accounting practices 
        to shift overhead costs not directly attributable to 
        production of this tank upgrade to the proper accounts;
            Reexamine options (in concert with any new armored 
        force revisions made as part of the larger strategic 
        review) to use newer tank chassis' for the upgrade that 
        might significantly lower unit cost;
            Reexamine the planned rates of production for this 
        program;
            Reassess the cost and benefits of installing an 
        auxiliary power unit as part of this upgrade;
            Review ways to further reduce the cost of the 
        second generation FLIR system; and provide a detailed 
        description of the terms and conditions of its proposed 
        multi-year procurement agreement.
      The conferees believe the Army should revisit its 
decision to commit to inefficient rates of 80 tanks per year 
over three years and only 43 tanks in year four and 24 tanks in 
year five.
      With respect to revaluation of the APU, the conferees are 
disturbed that more consideration and priority has not been 
given to upgrades that would reduce the very high cost of 
operation of this tank. The one proposed modification to reduce 
cost was the on-board auxiliary power unit, which was 
subsequently dropped from the package for ``affordability'' 
reasons. Given the well known problems with the Abrams power 
plant, the conferees would think that any modification that 
would reduce the significant O&S; costs for this equipment would 
receive high priority. The conferees strongly urge the Army to 
revise its plan to include this equipment.
      The conferees also direct the Secretary of the Army to 
submit a report, no later than June 15, 2000, that outlines the 
additional costs required to completely equip the ``first to 
fight corps'' with top line equipment and the Army's reasons 
for adopting a plan that deviates from this concept. The 
conferees do not expect the time required to submit this 
additional report to impact on the award of the multi-year 
contract.

                   family of medium tactical vehicles

      The conferees support the Army's competition strategy and 
their desire to engage in practices which seek to lower 
acquisition costs and improve the quality of the Family of 
Medium Tactical Vehicle truck. Additionally, the conferees 
understand that the Army must use funds appropriated for the 
FMTV program to establish and conduct any competition that will 
determine the future producers of FMTV trucks. The conferees 
direct that there be no delay in the competition for follow-on 
FMTV contract awards.
      The conferees direct the Secretary of Army to develop an 
acquisition strategy using competitive procedures for the next 
FMTV production contract based on, but not limited to, a 
validated FMTV technical data package which will serve as the 
baseline for the FMTV configuration. Furthermore, the conferees 
direct the Army to provide a report on the status of the 
acquisition strategy no later than March 15, 2000.

                   global combat support system--army

      The conferees are concerned about the Department's 
tendency to begin fielding an information technology system 
prior to the system actually passing Milestone III. Therefore 
the conferees direct the Army not to spend $11,900,000 of the 
funds provided in Other Procurement, Army for the Global Combat 
Support System--Army until after the system has received 
Milestone III approval.

            pacific mobile emergency radio system (PACMERS)

      The conferees are concerned that the existing emergency 
radio capability of the Pacific Command may have become an 
inadequate stovepipe system, consisting mainly of analog 
technology non-interoperable with the new and emergency 
technologies used by other federal, State and local 
governments. The maintenance and operation of existing 
equipment is no longer feasible nor cost effective.
      The proposed follow-on system, the Pacific Mobile 
Emergency Radio Systems (PACMERS), will allow total 
interoperability with all military services, federal law 
enforcement, and State and local agencies. PACMERS will provide 
the capabilities to insure emergency communications for first-
responders to weapons of mass destruction and counter-terrorism 
activities, consequence management, as well as other situations 
derived by civil disobedience or natural disaster. The 
capabilities of PACMERS will support Presidential Directives 62 
and 63.
      True cost savings will be realized by utilization of a 
total turn-key, leased system, which will negate government 
risk associated with the maintenance, technological 
obsolescence, and capital investment of a procured system. The 
anticipated cost-savings and economies of scale associated with 
the anticipated enhancements of PACMERS are of great interest 
to the conferees. In an expression of support for the PACMERS 
system concept, the Department of Defense is encouraged to 
accelerate installation, leading to a full operational 
capability as soon as is feasible.

                              joint stars

      The conferees agree with the Senate direction regarding 
the initiation of a pilot program to re-engine the JSTARS fleet 
with leased commercial engines. The conferees note that lease 
authority applies only to JSTARS and not to KC-135 aircraft.

               on-board oxygen generating system (obogs)

      The House recedes to the Senate with modifications. The 
conferees concur with the Senate report language directing the 
Secretary of the Air Force to provide a report on compliance 
with previous Congressional direction regarding installation of 
OBOGS on various aircraft, including implementation costs and 
potential cost savings. The Senate report further directs that 
OBOGS purchases from qualified vendors, including small 
business, be conducted on a competitive basis. The conferees 
fully support the competitive procurement of OBOGS for those 
aircraft models for which OBOGS procurement action has not been 
initiated.

                          c-135 modifications

      The conferees have provided $104,000,000 for re-engining 
of KC-135 tankers. The conferees are aware of multiple options 
for re-engining KC-135 aircraft. A number of options exist, 
including a new proposal to shift modified C-141 engines to 
these aircraft.
      The conferees believe that the KC-135 re-engining program 
should proceed under a comprehensive plan based on requirements 
and cost, utilizing competition and commercial practices to the 
maximum extent practicable. The conferees direct the Department 
of Defense to analyze all options for re-engining KC-135 
aircraft. The conferees direct that the plan assess the annual 
and total cost of all options and the range of capability 
improvements offered by each option. The conferees direct that 
this plan be provided to the congressional defense committees 
no later than February 25, 2000, and prior to the obligation of 
the added funds.

                defense airborne reconnaissance program

      The conferees agree to provide $10,800,000 for the 
Theater Airborne Warning System (TAWS) on the RC-135 Rivet 
Joint. The conferees direct that no more than fifty (50) 
percent of these funds may be obligated prior to the Secretary 
of the Air Force providing a letter to the congressional 
defense committees which certifies that the TAWS program is 
fully funded in the fiscal year 2001-2006 budget submitted to 
Congress and identifies all of the outyear funds budgeted for 
the TAWS program.

                              U-2 Program

      The U-2 is the premier tactical reconnaissance asset 
requested by the CINCs around the world. This system of 
aircraft, pilot, ground crew and equipment is tasked daily to 
support military operations, monitor conflicts, and maintain 
peace agreements. The recent NATO campaign in Kosovo, where the 
U-2 provided 24-hour in-theater coverage, showcased the 
capabilities of the system. The conferees understand that the 
U-2 was considered by many to be the ``backbone'' of the 
airborne Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) 
mission in Kosovo.
      The conferees are concerned that the increased number of 
missions, along with the limited number of U-2 aircraft and the 
declining number of qualified pilots in the Air Force, will 
adversely affect the ability of the U-2 to meet future ISR 
requirements.
      Therefore, the conferees request the Secretary of Defense 
submit a report to the defense subcommittees of the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations, which addresses the 
following:
            1. The performance and contributions of the U-2 
        aircraft in Operation Allied Force;
            2. The status of qualified U-2 pilots and training 
        needs for new pilots;
            3. The number of U-2 aircraft required to maintain 
        current capabilities, train new pilots, and continue to 
        fulfill the Air Force's high altitude reconnaissance 
        mission; and
            4. The Air Force's plan to sustain the U-2 weapon 
        system, with its multi-sensor payloads, and sensor-to-
        shooter flexible targeting assets until such time as a 
        replacement with equal or greater capability can be 
        operationally fielded.
      This report is due to the Committees within 90 days of 
enactment of this Act.
      The conferees agree to provide a total of $10,000,000 for 
U-2 cockpit and defensive systems. The Air Force should 
prioritize these upgrades and apply the $10,000,000 as 
necessary to meet the most pressing requirements.

                     warfighter advanced technology

      The conferees support the development of environmentally 
compatible products and services essential for the efficient 
operation of the military and civilian sectors and recognize 
the unique factors in tropical and subtropical regions that 
provide the technological and resource base for these products 
and services. The conferees agree to provide $6,000,000, as 
recommended by the Senate, to pursue the applied research, 
development, and demonstration of biosystems-derived food, 
fiber, textile, biomedical, industrial and environmentally 
compatible products and services to meet military and civilian 
needs under the cooperative management of the U.S. Army Natick 
Soldier Center and the U.S. Department of Agriculture 
Sustainable Economic Activity Program.

                                crusader

      The conferees support the Army's continued development of 
the Crusader advanced field artillery system to address support 
deficiencies. The conferees have reduced funding for the 
Crusader program by $75,806,000 due to schedule delays. The 
conferees do not view the decrement as a lack of support for 
the Crusader program and strongly encourage the Army to 
adequately fund the program in subsequent budget requests.

                 lightweight 155 towed howitzer program

      The conferees are concerned that the Lightweight 155mm 
Towed Howitzer program has been suffering from contractor and 
program deficiencies, which has led to a two-year delay in the 
program. The program has failed to fully utilize the expertise 
of Army arsenals in the development and design of the howitzer. 
Considering the long history of the arsenals in advancing 
howitzer producibility techniques, it is important that they be 
actively involved in the program, especially during the crucial 
EMD/prototype phase to ensure that efficient production 
techniques are designed at the earliest possible stage of the 
program. In addition, the arsenals constitute an important 
resource in providing spare parts and special development items 
for howitzer forces in time of war and national emergencies.
      The conferees direct the Army and the Marine Corps to 
develop a plan to include Rock Island Arsenal in producibility 
and manufacturing aspects of howitzer production, including 
recoil mechanisms and carriages for the Lightweight 155mm Towed 
Howitzer Program and other Army/Marine Corps future towed 
artillery programs. The conferees expect the Army and the 
Marine Corps to issue a report to the Senate and House 
Appropriations Subcommittees on Defense no later than sixty 
days after the enactment of this Act outlining the plan.

                     anti-armor weapons masterplan

      Last year, the conferees directed the Secretary of 
Defense to provide an Anti-Armor Weapons Masterplan with the 
fiscal year 2000 budget request. The plan, which was delivered 
five months after the budget submission, did not address the 
concerns outlined in the statement of the managers. The 
conferees are disappointed in the plan because it showed no 
evidence or future prospects of reducing the number of programs 
being pursued, no evidence of authority or control being 
exercised by OSD, and little evidence of rigorous critique of 
claimed requirements. OSD was directed to submit a report 
``with the purpose of identifying and eliminating excess 
capabilities.'' The report does not outline a strategy for the 
future, but merely justifies the current anti-armor weapons 
budget.
      Therefore the conferees direct the Secretary of Defense 
to provide an analysis with the fiscal year 2001 budget request 
that evaluates the joint effectiveness of the existing anti-
armor weapons in addressing the threat depicted in the defense 
planning guidance and how the planned anti-armor weapons are 
expected to fill shortfalls in current capability in the 
defense planning guidance scenarios. Based on this analysis, 
the Secretary should prioritize the Department's anti-armor 
weapon acquisition programs. The analysis is to be submitted 
with the fiscal year 2001 budget request.

Note: Funds are only for the auquisition and testing of a 
    lightweight SAR and for other related program requirements 
    such as software integration for the F/A-18C/D.

                    atlantic command experimentation

      The conferees agree to restrictions recommended by the 
House concerning use of fiscal year 1999 and 2000 funds which 
should be noted on the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414) 
for fiscal year 2000. The conferees recognize, however, that 
the Atlantic Command will work in areas such as the Single 
Integrated Air Picture, which facilitate improved attack of 
critical mobile targets. Funds provided in this Act for 
Atlantic Command Experimentation are only for an integrated 
program which addresses the short, mid, and long terms and may 
not be used on a program which fails to consider short and near 
term war fighting improvements. The conferees do not agree to 
House language requiring quarterly reports to the defense 
congressional committees, but direct instead that the Secretary 
of Defense provide semi-annual reports for the next two years.

                          surface effects ship

      The conferees urge the Department of the Navy to procure 
a 110 foot surface effects ship if needed to fulfill a fast 
patrol craft requirement.

                          maritime technology

      In the fiscal year 1999 DoD Appropriations Conference 
Report, the conferees directed the Secretary of the Navy to 
provide funds to the Maritime Administration to complete 
testing of the potential interim solution to remediate 
potential damage resulting from oil spills from existing tank 
vessels. Based on additional information, the conferees have 
determined that the Maritime Administration is not the 
appropriate organization to execute this effort. Therefore, the 
conferees direct that the fiscal year 1999 RDT&E; funds be 
redirected to the office of Naval Research for program 
execution.

      commercial operations and support savings initiative (COSSI)

      The conferees have provided $3,000,000 for MTTC/IPI in 
COSSI. The conferees fully expect MTTC/IPI to abide by program 
cost-sharing requirements in the future consistent with OSD 
requirements. However, for the initial award, the intent is for 
the requirement for cost sharing to be waived.

                   Software program managers network

      The conferees continue to support service programs and 
related activities provided by the Software Program Managers 
Network (SPMN). The conferees direct the Department to continue 
this program at last year's level of effort and, in addition, 
the conferees provide $1,000,000 to develop pilot projects to 
attract, train and retain skilled software personnel.

                               materials

      The conferees are aware of the potential for fuel cells 
to reduce the logistics requirements for batteries and liquid 
fuels, and improve operational effectiveness of various 
systems. The conferees note that a full-scale demonstration of 
an advanced solid polymer electrolyte fuel cell that uses PBO 
based membranes holds great promise in increasing the 
performance of and reducing the cost of fuel cells. The 
conferees request that the Secretary of the Air Force provide a 
report by February 1, 2000 reviewing PBO fuel cell technology 
and evaluating its potential to meet the demanding requirements 
of the ``Air Expeditionary Force Deployment'' concept of 
operation.

            crew systems and personnel protection technology

      The conference agreement includes $12,000,000 only for 
ejection seat risk reduction efforts. These funds shall be 
divided equally between all viable competitors and are to be 
used to bring each candidate seat to a common qualification 
standard consistent with joint Air Force-Navy requirements. 
This effort is to be designated as a Joint Ejection Seat 
Program, with program management responsibilities to rotate 
between the Air Force and Navy in accordance with a schedule 
specified by the Secretary of Defense. The conferees direct the 
Air Force and the Navy, in conjunction with their fiscal year 
2001 budget requests, to provide a program and associated 
funding plans that will bring each candidate seat to a common 
qualification standard in an expeditious manner. The Air Force 
and the Navy should include sufficient funds for each ejection 
seat, consistent with that plan, in their budget requests. The 
conferees expect this program will lead to development of fully 
qualified seats that can be competed for installation into the 
Joint Strike Fighter and other current and future aircraft.

                                milstar

      The conference agreement funds the MILSTAR program in the 
Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation, Air Force account 
as in past years. While the Air Force has indicated that the 
sixth and last satellite will not be used for Independent 
Operational Test and Evaluation and therefore would have been 
more appropriately funded in procurement, the conferees 
acknowledge that this satellite is now 60% assembled. The 
conferees therefore believe that it is impractical to transfer 
funding for this satellite to the procurement account at this 
stage in the program.

                                  f-22

      The conferees have included $1,222,232,000, the budget 
request amount, for the F-22 engineering and manufacturing 
development program. In addition, the conferees have included 
two general provisions providing funds for the F-22 program. 
The first provision appropriates an additional $1,000,000,000 
which is available for transfer for the purposes of F-22 
program research, development, test and evaluation, and advance 
procurement. This provision includes a prohibition on the award 
of a full funding contract for low-rate initial production for 
the F-22 aircraft program until the first flight of an F-22 
aircraft incorporating Block 3.0 software has been conducted. 
The conferees agree that up to $277,100,000 of the funds 
appropriated by this provision may be transferred to the 
``Aircraft Procurement, Air Force'', account only for advance 
procurement of F-22 aircraft. The conferees further agree that 
any funds transferred for F-22 advance procurement shall not be 
available for obligation until the Secretary of Defense 
certifies to the congressional defense committees that all 1999 
Defense Acquisition Board exit criteria have been met. The 
conferees direct the Air Force to establish cost accounting 
procedures which allow the accurate tracking of the cost of the 
additional test aircraft apart from other F-22 development 
efforts. The conferees further direct that costs associated 
with the additional test aircraft be separately identified in 
future research and development budget documents using the 
budget categories of the F-22 ``P-5'' budget exhibit. A second 
provision appropriates an additional $300,000,000 for F-22 
program termination liability or for other F-22 program 
contractual requirements in lieu of termination liability 
obligations. The conferees agree that the funds provided under 
this provision are not available for expenditure until October 
1, 2000.

               space based infrared system (sbirs)--high

      The conferees direct that no more than $100,000,000 of 
the funds provided for SBIRS High shall be obligated until the 
Secretary of Defense certifies that the production program 
complies with all DoD full funding policies (including the 
policy against funding more than 20% of the end-item cost using 
advance procurement) and that the program concurrency risk has 
been reduced relative to the acquisition strategy proposed by 
the Joint Estimating Team. The conferees further direct that 
concurrent with the Secretary of Defense certification above, 
the Director of Operational Test and Evaluation submit an 
assessment of whether the SBIRS high acquisition strategy 
allows for adequate testing to support a production decision.

            global positioning system spectrum harmonization

      The conferees continue to support the development of 
global positioning system technologies as being vital to the 
national security and economic interests of the United States. 
It has come to the attention of the conferees that increases in 
the aggregate noise that is generated into the spectrum band 
restricted for the delivery of GPS by users of spectrum in 
other frequency bands may pose a significant threat to the 
delivery of GPS. The conferees once again recognize the 
critical national security, public safety and economic 
interests that are implicated by this threat to the delivery of 
GPS, and therefore direct the DOD to initiate a spectrum 
harmonization study to be conducted by the National 
Telecommunications and Information Administration of the United 
States Department of Commerce to be delivered to the defense 
appropriations committees no later than January 31, 2000.

      theater air command and control simulation facility (taccsf)

      Of the amount appropriated for infrastructure upgrades at 
TACCSF's new facility, $500,000 will be made available to 
Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos National 
Laboratories to initiate a process to leverage their 
scientific, analytical, and computational capacities to advance 
and expand the simulation and modeling activities at TACCSF.

                         mariah ii wind tunnel

      In 1998, Congress combined the Air Force's and NASA's 
Hypervelocity Wind Tunnel programs under the name of Mariah II. 
This was done in recognition of the Air Force's requirements 
for Air Defense as well as the reputation of Arnold Engineering 
Development Center in the development and use of wind tunnels. 
The conferees believe that a hypervelocity ground test facility 
is critical for the development of the next generation of space 
and re-entry vehicles. The conferees are also concerned that 
the Air Force has been hesitant to adequately fund this 
successful high technology project. Any delays in this program 
would not only defeat the research momentum of all of the 
partners, but it would destroy the excellent teaming that has 
enabled the success to date. The conferees encourage the 
Department of the Air Force to support this necessary research 
and urge the Department of Defense to budget funds for fiscal 
year 2001 and beyond.

                    high altitude endurance vehicle

                  global hawk unmanned aerial vehicle

      The conferees are very concerned that the Air Force is 
planning to proceed with a revised Global Hawk program that has 
not been formally presented to Congress for approval. 
Additionally, it is unclear how this new program, if approved, 
would be funded in the out-years. The conferees understand that 
the total cost of the program could exceed $800,000,000 and 
that the Air Force may divert funds budgeted or appropriated 
for other Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) 
assets, to fully fund the revised Global Hawk program. The 
conferees agree that using other ISR assets as a ``bank'' from 
which to draw funds for the Global Hawk program would likely 
not serve the best interests of the Department of Defense.
      Therefore, while the conferees have agreed to provide an 
increase of $15,000,000 for Global Hawk, this should not be 
perceived as an approval of the revised Global Hawk program. 
The conferees agree that if the revised Global Hawk program is 
what the Administration plans to pursue, the program should be 
presented in a future budget request. Any shortfall in funding 
in fiscal year 2000 may be accommodated by approval of a 
reprogramming request.

                            seismic research

      Last year's nuclear tests in South Asia raise serious 
concerns about the Department's ability to support a robust 
operational nuclear test monitoring program. The conferees 
direct that from within available funds, $10,000,000 shall be 
available only for peer-reviewed basic and applied research 
only to support operational nuclear test monitoring. Of this 
amount, $2,500,000 shall be available only for peer-reviewed 
seismic research; and $7,500,000 shall be available only for 
peer-reviewed basic research--$6,500,000 of which is only for 
explosion seismology research. The conferees direct that the 
basic and applied seismic research program consider the 
specific prioritized research topics recommended to the 
Department by the National Research Council.
      The conferees direct the Defense Threat Reduction Agency 
to award these funds through a competitive peer panel review 
process; to segregate the basic and applied research funds for 
this program into clearly identifiable projects within the 6.1 
and 6.2 budget categories; and to improve integration of the 
basic and applied components of the program. Further, the 
conferees direct the Department to provide, by December 1, 
1999, a detailed report to the Congressional Defense Committees 
on the plan for obligating these funds. Finally, the conferees 
direct the Department to sustain funding for these activities 
in future budgets to ensure the expertise needed in this 
critical operational program.

                national missile defense risk reduction

      To take full advantage of joint ballistic missile defense 
efforts with allied nations, the conferees direct the Director 
of the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization to provide a 
report to the Appropriations Committees of the House and Senate 
by February 1, 2000, on those technologies, designs, or 
technical approaches developed by, or in cooperation with, 
allied ballistic missile defense programs that would help 
reduce the level of technical, schedule, or cost risk to any 
element of the U.S. national missile defense program.

                        advanced research center

      The conferees direct the Ballistic Missile Defense 
Organization not to establish any new missile defense data 
centers.
      Further, the conferees have provided an additional 
$2,500,000 for the operational support of the Army's Advanced 
Research Center (ARC) for a total level of funding of 
$14,500,000. The conferees understand this level to be 
sufficient to maintain modeling and simulation capability at 
the facility in support of Theater and National Missile Defense 
Programs while providing the necessary infrastructure support 
for the facility. As such, users should not be required to 
offset operational costs with program funding in any form. Only 
peculiar and unique support should require such contributions 
and under no condition should such fees be assessed or required 
by higher commands. The conferees direct BMDO to maintain and 
plan for adequate levels of operational support for the ARC 
without reliance upon program user fees.

                      transportation technologies

      The House report recommended that the Center for 
Commercial Deployment of Transportation Technologies be 
considered for up to $15,000,000 of the funds provided in 
Operation and Maintenance, Defense-wide. To be consistent with 
United States Transportation Command's established funding 
mechanism and management system the conferees believe that the 
Center should be considered for up to $15,000,000 of the funds 
provided in Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, 
Defense-wide instead.

                             Discoverer II

      The conferees agree to provide a total of $40,000,000 for 
the Discoverer II satellite technology demonstration program, a 
reduction of $68,500,000 to the budget request. The conferees 
agree that this funding shall be provided in equal portions to 
the Air Force, the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency 
(DARPA), and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO).
      The conferees direct that the funding provided in fiscal 
year 2000 may only be used to complete the Phase I study 
portion of the program, and any associated program management 
costs.

                            medical research

      The conferees applaud the medical research and 
development efforts and accomplishments of the Department of 
Defense, and, within funding provided for the Defense Health 
Program, recommend $275,000,000 for medical RDT&E; efforts to be 
conducted by the Department. Within these funds, $175,000,000 
is for the Army's peer reviewed Breast Cancer Research Program 
(BCRP), and $75,000,000 is for the Army's peer reviewed 
Prostate Cancer Research Program (PCRP).
      The remaining funds of $25,000,000 are to be made 
available for peer reviewed medical research grants and 
activities. The conferees direct that the Secretary of Defense, 
in conjunction with the service Surgeons General, establish a 
process to select medical research projects of clear scientific 
merit and direct relevance to military health.
      Such projects could include: acute lung injury research; 
advanced soft tissue modeling; alcohol abuse prevention 
research; Defense and Veterans Head Injury Program; Dengue 
fever vaccine research; childhood asthma; diabetes; digital 
mammography imagining; Gulf War Illnesses; Padget's disease; 
retinal display technology; smoking cessation; stem cell 
research; and volumetrically controlled manufacturing.
      The conferees direct the Department to provide a report 
by March 1, 2000, on the status of this peer reviewed medical 
research program, to include the corresponding funds provided 
in fiscal year 1999.

                             custodial care

      The conference agreement includes a general provision 
clarifying the definition of custodial care as it pertains to 
the delivery of health care services provided by and financed 
under the military health care system's case management 
program. This provision also sets the overall policy for access 
of military health care system beneficiaries in the case 
management program. The House bill included a similar 
provision. The Senate bill contained no similar provision. The 
conferees expect the Department to expeditiously revise its 
regulations to comply with this provision.

              anthrax vaccine immunization program (avip)

      The Comptroller General shall study the immunization 
program and report on the following: effects on military 
morale, retention, and recruiting; the civilian costs and 
burdens associated with adverse reactions for members of the 
reserve components; adequacy of long- and short-term health 
monitoring; assessment of the anthrax threat, including but not 
limited to foreign doctrine, weaponization, quality of 
intelligence, and other biological threats. A classified annex 
may be submitted to meet this requirement.
      The Department is directed to enter into a contract with 
the National Research Council to independently study the 
effectiveness and safety of the anthrax vaccine. The following 
issues shall be considered in the report: the types and 
severity of adverse reactions, including gender differences; 
long-term health implications; inhalational efficacy of the 
vaccine against all known anthrax strains; correlation of 
animal models to safety and effectiveness in humans; validation 
of the manufacturing process focusing on, but not limited to 
discrepancies identified by the Food and Drug Administration in 
February 1998; definition of vaccine components in terms of the 
protective antigen and other bacterial products and 
constituents; identification of gaps in existing research.
      Preliminary reports addressing these issues will be 
submitted to the Committee on Appropriations and the Committee 
on Armed Services of both the House and the Senate by April 1, 
2000.

                              oxford house

      The conferees direct the Department to conduct a pilot 
project to improve treatment outcomes for alcoholism and drug 
addiction. The pilot project should evaluate the effectiveness 
and cost efficiency of Oxford House recovery homes in improving 
recovery without relapse following treatment for alcoholism and 
drug addiction among active and retired military personnel and 
their dependents. The conferees direct the Department to 
provide a report by March 1, 2000 on the status of this pilot 
project.

                  triservice nursing research program

      The conferees recommend $6,000,000 for the TriService 
Nursing Research Program (TSNRP). Within these funds, the 
conferees encourage the Department to leverage telehealth and 
distance learning capabilities, and to continue efforts in 
developing telemetered passive physiological monitoring for 
field conditions. Further, the conferees encourage the 
Department to begin funding the TSNRP in the Department's 
annual budget.


                  Chemical Munitions Destruction, Army

      The conferees concur with the decision of the Department 
of Defense to conduct evaluations of three additional 
alternative technologies under the Assembled Chemical Weapons 
Assessment (ACWA) Program. The conferees direct that 
$40,000,000 of the funds made available for Chemical Agents and 
Munitions Destruction, Army are only to conduct the additional 
ACWA evaluations. The conferees direct that the ACWA program is 
to proceed under the same guidelines as contained in Public Law 
104-208, and continue to use the Dialogue process and Citizens 
Advisory Technical Teams and their consultants.
      The conferees agree that the current budget execution 
rates for the Chemical Agents and Munitions Destruction program 
are unacceptable and hopes that the Army improves the budget 
execution rates in fiscal year 2000. In the event that program 
budget execution rates improve during the fiscal year, and 
additional funds are required to sustain the establishment and 
operation of the nine chemical demilitarization facilities, the 
conferees expect the Army to submit a reprogramming request 
subject to normal, prior approval reprogramming procedures.
      The conferees disagree with the House direction with 
regard to an Inspector General report on the Chemical Agents 
and Munitions Destruction Program, Army. The conferees agree 
with House language directing the General Accounting Office to 
submit a report on the budget activities and management of the 
program.

                        technologies assessment

      The conferees agree to provide $2,500,000 to assess 
technologies to detect air, land and maritime platforms which 
are evading currently operating detection and monitoring 
systems either because of their technological deficiencies or 
their locations. The conferees specifically direct that the 
assessment consider the utility of an additional Relocatable 
Over The Horizon Radar site, a Wide Aperture Radar Facility, 
and a ground station to support a tropical remote sensing 
radar. The conferees direct that the assessment be concluded by 
April 1, 2000 and that its findings be included in a report to 
the defense committees not later than May 15, 2000.

          counter-drug intelligence and infrastructure support

      The conferees agree to provide $30,000,000 for Counter-
drug Intelligence and Infrastructure Support in order to 
support numerous initiatives including those outlined by the 
Senate in the Drug Free Century Act and those identified in 
House Report 105-244 to include Operation Caper Focus, P-3 
FLIRs, observation aircraft, mothership operations, A-10 
aircraft, and other joint military intelligence programs. The 
conferees direct the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for 
Drug Enforcement Policy to provide a plan for utilization of 
these funds to the defense committees within 60 days of the 
enactment of this Act.

              a-10 logistical and demilitarization support

      The conferees direct the Deputy Assistant Secretary of 
Defense for Drug Enforcement Policy and Support and the 
Assistant Secretary of State, Bureau of International Narcotics 
and Law Enforcement Affairs to submit a joint report to 
Congress within thirty days of enactment of the accompanying 
Act assessing the cost effectiveness of using refurbished A-10 
aircraft (currently in storage at AMARC) for the Department of 
State's coca eradication mission in Colombia. This report shall 
also discuss the time saved in returning such upgraded aircraft 
to combat condition should they be needed, compared to the time 
required to bring a storage aircraft to the same combat 
configuration, and assess the fiscal and operational impacts on 
the active A-10 combat force of such a transfer. The conferees 
agree that, if this report contains a joint recommendation to 
use these aircraft for this mission, $5,000,000 shall be made 
available from the sums provided under ``Counter-drug 
Intelligence and Infrastructure Support'' only for this 
purpose, in accordance with the directive of the House.

                      forward operating locations

      The conferees agree to a reduction of $27,000,000 to the 
budget request for Forward Operating Locations (FOLs). The 
conferees agree to provide $10,800,000 to be transferred to 
Military Construction, Air Force for planning and design of 
FOLs. The conferees also agree to provide $5,000,000 for 
transfer to Operation and Maintenance, Air Force only to be 
used for improvement and repair at the Curacao, Aruba, and 
Ecuador FOLs. Although the conferees are aware that the 
Commander in Chief of the U.S. Southern Command recommends that 
construction at these locations begin as soon as possible, the 
conferees are concerned that no formal permanent binding long-
term agreements for the use of these facilities have been 
executed between any of the FOL host nations and the United 
States. Funding beyond that needed for planning and design 
activities is premature without such agreements in place. The 
conferees direct that future requests for Military Construction 
funding for these projects be contained in budget requests for 
Military Construction.

                    office of the inspector general

      The conferees agree to provide $137,544,000 for the 
Office of the Inspector General. Of this amount, $136,244,000 
shall be for operation and maintenance activities and 
$1,300,000 shall be for procurement.

                  emergency and extraordinary expenses

      The conferees have agreed to increase the amount made 
available for emergencies and extraordinary expenses to 
$700,000 and direct the Inspector General to submit an 
expenditures report in compliance with the requirements 
contained in section 127 of Title 10, United States Code.

                      TITLE VII--RELATED AGENCIES

    The conferees agree to the following amounts for Related 
Agencies:

Evaluation, Defense-Wide'' in Public Law 105-262 are available 
for the Medium Extended Air Defense System.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8121) 
which amends House language to enhance DoD oversight of 
information technology systems.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8124) 
which amends House language that permits competitive auction of

      The new subsection (subsection (c)) reaffirms 
Congressional intent, as reflected in section 337(d)(4) of the 
Balanced Budget Act of 1997, that the FCC must ensure that the 
spectrum to be used for public safety is protected from 
interference. Section 337(a)(1) of that Act directed the FCC to 
allocate 24 megahertz for public safety uses, while the current 
legislation would accelerate the timing of the auction of 36 
megahertz of neighboring spectrum which had been allocated in 
section 337(d)(2) of the 1997 Act. Because the public safety 
spectrum is adjacent to the spectrum now being auctioned, it is 
important to affirm that the interference directive in section 
337(d) is not being superceded by the current legislation.
      The Congress, in the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, 
required that public safety services be permitted to operate 
free from interference from neighboring spectrum. This 
subsection will reiterate, along with the statutory direction 
that the auction will be accelerated, that such protection for 
public safety spectrum must be maintained.

of the Air Force the authority to lease aircraft for 
operational support purposes. The conferees direct that 
aircraft leased under this pilot program shall be commercially 
available, serving similar purposes in the commercial 
marketplace. The conferees believe that the Department of 
Defense could realize significant operations and support 
savings through employing the fewest aircraft types of a common 
configuration. In that regard, the Secretary shall make every 
attempt to lease aircraft of the type and configuration common 
to the DoD inventory and use accompanying logistics support 
mechanisms already in place. Modifications to these aircraft 
should be kept to a minimum to allow timely conversion to a 
marketable, civilian configuration, at minimum cost, if the 
aircraft are subsequently replaced.
