(or such earlier date as the Secretary of Defense considers 
appropriate), a member of the uniformed services entitled to a 
basic allowance for housing for a military housing area in the

less than the rate in effect on December 31, 1999, in that area 
for members serving in the same pay grade and with the same 
dependency status as the member.
    (b) Annual Limitation on Allowance.--In light of the rates 
for the basic allowance for housing authorized by subsection 
(a), the Secretary of Defense may exceed the limitation on the

      This conference agreement addresses some activities that 
were not technically in conference. The House had passed H.R. 
3908 that included its version of supplemental appropriations. 
The Senate reported S. 2536, which included several other 
supplemental appropriations in addition to the ones included in 
the amendment to this bill. The Senate also has taken action on 
S. 2522, which includes additional supplemental appropriations. 
The conferees have attempted to address many of the fiscal year 
2000 supplemental appropriations in this conference.

   DIVISION A--FISCAL YEAR 2001 MILITARY CONSTRUCTION APPROPRIATIONS

                       Items of General Interest

      Matters Addressed by Only One Committee.--The language 
and allocations set forth in House Report 106-614 and Senate 
Report 106-290 should be complied with unless specifically 
addressed to the contrary in the conference report and 
statement of the managers. Report language included by the 
House which is not changed by the report of the Senate or the 
conference, and Senate report language which is not changed by 
the conference is approved by the committee of conference. The 
statement of the managers, while repeating some report language 
for emphasis, does not intend to negate the language referred 
to above unless expressly provided herein. In cases in which 
the House or the Senate has directed the submission of a report 
from the Department of Defense, such report is to be submitted 
to both House and Senate Committees on Appropriations.
      Contingency Funding.--The Department of Defense requested 
no contingency funding for military construction and family 
housing projects in the fiscal year 2001 budget request. The 
conferees believe that some level of contingency funding is 
essential for the efficient and cost-effective completion of 
these projects. If the Department loses this funding 
flexibility, it will be incapable of supporting requirements 
generated by unforeseen needs, such as environmental and 
regulatory requirements, unanticipated subsurface conditions 
and changes in bid climate. As a result, the conferees direct 
the Department to include 5 percent contingency funding when 
requesting construction funds in the fiscal year 2002 budget 
submission and for future year projects.
      Financial Management.--The conferees agree that the 
rescission of funds included in the conference agreement are 
based on large prior year unobligated balances and such factors 
as savings through favorable bids, reduced overhead costs, 
downsizing or cancellation due to force structure changes (if 
any), other administrative cost reduction initiatives, revised 
economic assumptions, and inflation re-estimates. The conferees 
direct that no project for which funds were previously 
appropriated, or for which funds are appropriated in this bill, 
may be canceled as a result of the reductions included in the 
conference agreement.
      Foreign Currency Fluctuations, Construction, Defense.--
Due to the U.S. dollar significantly improving over prior 
fiscal years and for other reasons, the amounts available in 
the ``Foreign Currency Fluctuations, Construction, Defense'' 
account exceed those necessary to eliminate losses due to 
unfavorable fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. 
Accordingly, the conferees include a provision (Section 132) 
which rescinds $83,000,000 from this account. The conferees 
also include a total reduction of $43,852,000 to the following 
appropriations because the U.S. dollar has significantly 
improved against most foreign currencies than the Department of 
Defense predicted when it submitted its fiscal year 2001 
budget:
        Account                                                   Amount
Military Construction, Army.............................       -$635,000
Military Construction, Navy.............................      -2,889,000
Military Construction, Defense-Wide.....................      -7,115,000
Family Housing, Army....................................     -19,911,000
Family Housing, Navy and Marine Corps...................      -1,071,000
Family Housing, Air Force...............................     -12,231,000
                    --------------------------------------------------------
                    ____________________________________________________
          Total.........................................     -43,852,000

      Joint Use Facilities.--The conferees support joint use of 
facilities between the various components of the Defense 
Department. Joint use facilities can optimize 
militaryconstruction and operation and maintenance funds while 
enhancing joint training and the total force concept. Beginning with 
the fiscal year 2003 budget submission, the conferees direct that any 
Form 1390/1391, which is presented as justification material, shall 
include certification by the originating installation commander. The 
certification will include information that the project has been 
considered and reviewed for joint use potential, a recommendation for 
either joint use or unilateral construction, and the reasons(s) for 
that recommendation if joint use is not recommended. This certification 
is to be reviewed by the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) 
during the budget review to ensure impartial review.
      Proposed Financing of Current Year Programs Via Prior 
Year Savings.--The budget request for fiscal year 2001 proposed 
partial financing of current year programs via prior year 
savings, as follows:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Account/Location                        Project description         Authorization  Appropriation
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Military Construction, Navy:
    District of Columbia: Naval Research Lab...  Nano-Science Research Facility...    $12,390,000              0
    Texas: Kingsville Naval Air Station........  Aircraft Parking Apron...........      2,670,000              0
    North Carolina: Camp Lejuene MCB...........  Armories.........................     14,000,000    $10,000,000
    Italy: Sigonella Naval Air Station.........  Community Facilities.............     32,969,000     32,029,000
                                                                                   -----------------------------
      Total....................................  .................................     62,029,000     42,029,000
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      If program execution has resulted in identifiable prior 
year savings within individual projects, the correct financing 
method is to detail such savings and to request rescissions of 
funds by account and by fiscal year. The conferees direct the 
Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) to follow the 
conventional rescission procedure in future budget submissions.
      Quadrennial Defense Review.--The conferees are concerned 
with the Defense Department's declining investments in the 
construction, replacement, and revitalization of facilities. 
Therefore, the conferees strongly support the language included 
in House Report 106-614 on the Quadrennial Defense Review. The 
conferees expect the Congressionally mandated Quadrennial 
Defense Review to include a thorough review of the Defense 
Department's basing capacity, outsourcing strategy, and 
military construction requirements and related facilities 
restoration and modernization programs.
      Real Property Maintenance: Reporting Requirement.--The 
conferees agree to the following general rules for repairing a 
facility under Operation and Maintenance funding:
      Components of the facility may be repaired by 
replacement, and such replacement can be up to current 
standards or code.
      Interior arrangements and restorations may be included as 
repair, but additions, new facilities, and functional 
conversions must be performed as military construction 
projects.
      Such projects may be done concurrent with repair 
projects, as long as the final conjunctively funded project is 
a complete and usable facility.
      The appropriate Service Secretary shall submit a 21-day 
notification prior to carrying out any repair project with an 
estimated cost in excess of $7,500,000.
      Reprogramming Criteria.--The conferees believe there is a 
need to clarify the rules for military construction and family 
housing reprogrammings. A project or account (including the 
sub-elements of an account) which has been specifically reduced 
by the Congress in acting on the appropriation request is 
considered to be a congressional interest item. A prior 
approval reprogramming is required for any increase to an item 
that has been specifically reduced by the Congress. 
Consequently, there can be no below threshold reprogrammings to 
an item specifically reduced by the Congress.
      Furthermore, in instances where a prior approval 
reprogramming request for a project or account has been 
approved becomes the new base for any future increase or 
decrease via a below threshold reprogramming (provided that the 
project or account is not a congressional interest item).
      Alkali Silica Reactivity.--The conferees continue to be 
concerned about the effects of Alkali Silica Reactivity (ASR) 
on Department of Defense concrete facilities including aprons, 
taxiways, runways and tarmacs. The conferees direct the Under 
Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics 
to assess the overall condition of Department of Defense 
facilities and infrastructure with respect to ASR. This review 
should also address the Department's long-term strategy and 
recommendations to manage this issue. These findings should be 
provided to the congressional defense committees not later than 
May 1, 2001.

                      military construction, army

      The conference agreement appropriates $909,245,000 for 
Military Construction, Army, instead of $869,950,000 as 
proposed by the House, and $823,503,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. Within this amount, the conference agreement earmarks 
$109,306,000 for study, planning, design, architect and 
engineer services, and host nation support instead of 
$99,961,000 as proposed by the House and $84,706,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      Kansas--Fort Leavenworth: Bell Hall.--The conferees note 
the deteriorating condition of Bell Hall, the central academic 
and instructional facility of the Army's Command and General 
Staff College. The cost to maintain the current physical plant 
is no longer cost effective and its communications capabilities 
are significantly constrained. The conferees encourage the Army 
to include this replacement in the fiscal year 2002 budget 
submission.
      New York--U.S. Military Academy: Multimedia Learning 
Centers.--Within funds provided for unspecified minor 
construction, the conferees direct the Army to execute a 
project in the amount of $500,000 to provide Multimedia 
Learning Centers at the United States Military Academy in New 
York.
      Pennsylvania--Letterkenny Army Depot: Missile Igloo 
Modifications.--Of the additional funding provided for planning 
and design, the conferees direct that not less than $112,000 be 
made available for the design of this facility.
      Virginia--Fort Belvoir: Potomac Heritage National Scenic 
Trail.--Within the additional funds provided for unspecified 
minor construction, the conferees direct the Army to provide 
not less than $500,000 for the multi-use trail system at Fort 
Belvoir in Virginia.
      Washington-Fort Lewis: Vancouver Barracks.--Within the 
additional funds provided for unspecified minor construction, 
the conferees direct the Army to provide not less than 
$1,500,000 for the protection of historic facilities at the 
Vancouver Barracks at Fort Lewis in Washington.

                      military construction, navy

      The conference agreement appropriates $928,273,000 for 
Military Construction, Navy, instead of $891,380,000 as 
proposed by the House, and $828,278,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. Within this amount, the conference agreement earmarks 
$73,335,000 forstudy, planning, design, architect and engineer 
services instead of $67,502,000 as proposed by the House and 
$71,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      California--North Island Naval Air Station: 
Transportation Infrastructure.--The conferees do not expect the 
Navy to begin design of a project to alleviate traffic flow 
problems at North Island Naval Air Station. The scope of the 
project is far reaching and involves traffic considerations 
that fall beyond the Navy mission. Therefore, planning and 
design funds are not the proper source of funds to determine 
the project requirements (10 U.S.C. 2807).

                    military construction, Air Force

      The conference agreement appropriates $870,208,000 for 
Military Construction, Air Force, instead of $703,903,00 as 
proposed by the House, and $777,793,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. Within this amount, the conference agreement earmarks 
$74,628,000 for study, planning, design, architect and engineer 
services instead of $56,949,000 as proposed by the House and 
$69,337,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      Air Force Electronic Warfare Evaluation Simulator.--The 
conferees are aware of an Air Force effort to develop a plan to 
relocate the Air Force Electronic Warfare Evaluation Simulator 
(AFEWES) from Air Force Plant 4 to the Air Force Flight Test 
Center. Government studies, including the 1995 Base Realignment 
and Closure Commission and a 1997 GAO report, all highlight the 
absence of cost/capability rationale to justify such a 
relocation. For these reasons, and to ensure that prudent 
future expenditure of military construction funds, the 
conferees encourage the Air Force to include a comprehensive 
cost/benefit analysis and standard return on investment 
criteria in the relocation study now being performed. Because 
AFEWES specialized test capabilities are a vital element of our 
national defense posture, study findings should also 
demonstrate the technical and cost merits of relocation to the 
Air Force Flight Test Center. The Secretary of the Air Force is 
to review this matter and report to the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees no later than February 28, 2001.
      Delaware--Dover AFB: Control Tower.--The conferees note 
that the control tower at Dover AFB is antiquated, inadequately 
sited, and lacks modern air traffic control equipment. Given 
the activity level and mission critical nature of this base, 
the project appears to be an excellent candidate for the 
President's fiscal year 2002 budget. Accordingly, the conferees 
urge the Secretary of the Air Force to review this project, and 
to expedite its advancement into the fiscal year 2002 budget.

                  military construction, defense-wide

      The conference agreement appropriates $814,647,000 for 
Military Construction, Defense-wide, instead of $800,314,000 as 
proposed by the House, and $801,098,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. Within this amount, the conference agreement earmarks 
$77,505,000 for study, planning, design, architect and engineer 
services as proposed by the House instead of $163,700,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      Chemical Demilitarization Program.--The budget request 
proposes funding the construction of chemical weapon 
demilitarization facilities under the ``Military Construction, 
Army'' account. As in prior years, the conferees recommend that 
this funding be appropriated under the ``Military Construction, 
Defense-wide'' account, in order to facilitate the tracking of 
expenses for the Chemical Demilitarization Program, and to 
avoid distorting the size of the Army's military construction 
program.
      The conference agreement provides $175,400,000 for the 
chemical demilitarization program to fully fund all requested 
projects for fiscal year 2001. However, the conferees continue 
to be concerned over the extremely slow obligation and 
expenditure rates for the program due to significant delays at 
most of the sites that are currently being constructed. 
Therefore, the conferees include a general reduction of 
$20,000,000 against the entire program.
      Department of Defense Education Activity (DODEA).--The 
conferees strongly support DODEA initiatives to increase the 
half-day kindergarten program to full day in overseas schools 
and reduce class size in grades 1-3 to an average of 18 
students to 1 teacher. These educational initiatives are valued 
and supported by the military community as a critical element 
of its quality of life and readiness. Because these initiatives 
require substantial funding to modernize school facilities, the 
conference agreement provides an additional $11,852,000 for the 
DODEA military construction program. Additional funding is 
provided for the following projects:

               Military Construction, Army National Guard

      The conference agreement appropriates $281,717,000 for 
military Construction, Army National Guard, instead of 
$137,603,000 as proposed by the House, and $233,675,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      California-Bakersfield: Readiness Center.--Of the 
additional funding provided for planning and design, the 
conferees direct that not less than $500,000 be made available 
for the design of this facility.
      California-Los Alamitos: Joint Headquarters Building.--
House Report 106-614 included language directing the Army 
Reserve to accelerate the design of this facility and include 
the required construction funding in its fiscal year 2002 
budget request. The Army National Guard should be the lead 
proponent for the facility. Therefore, the conferees direct the 
Army National Guard to accelerate the design of the Joint 
Headquarters Building in Los Alamitos, California and to 
include the required construction funding in its fiscal year 
2002 budget request.
      California-National Guard Facilities.--The Army National 
Guard requested nine location changes to the budget submission 
for the state of California. The changes will provide a more 
centralized vehicle maintenance management system. After design 
of the budgeted projects began, the Army National Guard 
realized the existing locations were unsuitable and further 
facility investment would prove unwise. Accordingly, the 
conferees recommend the following location changes:
      (1) The project titles budgeted for Bakersfield, 
Escondido, Richmond, San Jose, San Mateo, and Santa Barbara are 
moved to Camp Parks.
      (2) The project titles budgeted for Colton, Fresno, and 
Los Alamitos are moved to Fresno.
      Iowa-Fairfield: Readiness Center Addition.--Within the 
additional funds provided for unspecified minor construction, 
the conferees direct the Army National Guard to provide not 
less than $1,066,000 for an addition to the readiness center at 
Fairfield, Iowa.
      Missouri--Fort Leonard Wood: Army Aviation Support 
Center.--In the Senate report 106-290, the Army Aviation 
Support Center at Fort Leonard Wood was incorrectly identified 
as an unspecified minor construction project. This project 
should be executed with funds made available for planning and 
design.
      Nevada--Carson City: Readiness Center.--The conferees are 
concerned that the cost of the Readness Center in Carson City, 
Nevada has increased due to changes in criteria directed by the 
National Guard Bureau. Funding for this project was 
appropriated in fiscal year 1999. The conferees direct the 
National Guard Bureau to ensure that adequate additional 
funding is provided to the Nevada National Guard to complete 
this project.
      Oregon--Eugene: Armed Forces Reserve Center Complex.--The 
number one priority for the Oregon National Guard is to replace 
a 66-year-old facility in Eugene which is considered undersized 
by Naval Reserve/Marine Corps standards. The buildings have 
deteriorated extensively and are substandard with respect to 
size and level of serviceability of the building. The 
consolidation will provide savings of about $1,400,000 in 
direct construction costs and will reduce the operations and 
maintenance burden by at least 20 percent annually. The 
conferees encourage the National Guard to complete the design 
and to include this project in its fiscal year 2002 budget 
request.

               Military Construction, Air National Guard

      The conference agreement appropriates $203,829,000 for 
Military Construction, Air National Guard, instead of 
$110,585,000 as proposed by the House, and $183,029,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      Connecticut--Orange Air National Guard Station: Air 
Control Squadron Complex.--Although the conferees were unable 
to fund this project due to funding constraints, the conferees 
strongly urge the Air National Guard to include this project in 
its fiscal year 2002 budget submission.

                  Military Construction, Army Reserve

      The conference agreement appropriates $108,738,000 for 
Military Construction, Army Reserve, instead of $115,854,000 as 
proposed by the House, and $99,888,000 as proposed by the 
Senate.
      New Jersey--Fort Dix: Barracks.--Of the $11,900,000 
provided for planning and design within the ``Army Reserve'' 
amount, the conferees direct that not less than $900,000 be 
made available for the design of this facility.
      Utah--S.A. Douglas Armed Forces Reserve Center: Parking 
and Site Improvements.--The conferees direct the Army Reserve 
to execute a project to provide parking and site improvements 
at the S.A. Douglas Armed Forces Reserve Center in Utah using 
funds available for unspecified minor construction. The 
estimated cost of this project is $700,000.

                  military construction, naval reserve

      The conference agreement appropriates $64,473,000 for 
Military Construction, Naval Reserve, instead of $53,004,000 as 
proposed by the House, and $38,532,000 as proposed by the 
Senate.
      Rescission of Funds.--The conferees rescind $2,400,000 
appropriated under the ``Military Construction, Naval Reserve'' 
account in the fiscal year 1998 Military Construction 
Appropriations Act (Public Law 105-45). These are funds which 
remain unobligated from the renovation of Building 1900 at the 
Westover Air Force Reserve Base in Massachusetts. The project 
was halted due to escalating costs in connection with asbestos 
and other environmental problems.

                military construction, air force reserve

      The conference agreement appropriates $36,591,000 for 
Military Construction, Air Force Reserve, instead of 
$43,748,000 as proposed by the House, and $25,533,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.

     north atlantic treaty organization security investment program

      The conference agreement appropriates $172,000,000 for 
the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Security Investment 
Program (NSIP), instead of $177,500,000 as proposed by the 
House, and $175,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.

                          family housing, army

      The conference agreement appropriates $235,956,000 for 
Construction, Family Housing Army, instead of $198,505,000 as 
proposed by the House and $221,106,000 as proposed by the 
Senate.
      The conference agreement appropriates $951,793,000 for 
Operation and Maintenance, Family Housing, Army, instead of 
$953,744,000 as proposed by the House and $958,364,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      The conference agreement appropriates a total of 
$1,187,749,000 for Family Housing, Army, instead of 
$1,152,249,000 as proposed by the House and $1,179,470,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.

                 family housing, navy and marine corps

      The conference agreement appropriates $418,155,000 for 
Construction, Family Housing, Navy and Marine Corps, instead of 
$419,584,000 as proposed by the House and $392,765,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      The conferees direct that the following projects are to 
be accomplished within the increased amount provided for 
construction improvements:

California--Camp Pendelton (98 units)...................      $9,030,000
District of Columbia: 8th and I Marine Barracks (1 unit)         500,000

      The conference agreement appropriates $881,567,000 for 
Operation and Maintenance, Family Housing, Navy and Marine 
Corps, as proposed by the Senate instead of $879,208,000 as 
proposed by the House.
      The conference agreement appropriates a total of 
$1,299,722,000 for Family Housing, Navy and Marine Corps, 
instead of $1,298,792,000 as proposed by the House and 
$1,274,332,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      California--Mission Trails Regional Park.--The conferees 
include a new provision (Section 133) which amends Section 131 
of the fiscal year 1988 Military Construction Appropriations 
Act (Public Law 100-202). The new provision allows the 
Secretary of the Navy to use proceeds from the conveyance of 
real property in the Mission Trails Regional Park area, for the 
acquisition of military family housing in the San Diego area 
through the use of privatization authorities contained in 
subchapter IV of chapter 169 of title 10. In addition, the new 
provision permits the transfer of proceeds into the Department 
of Defense Family Housing Improvement Fund.

                       family housing, air force

      The conference agreement appropriates $251,982,000 for 
Construction, Family Housing, Air Force, instead of 
$241,384,000 as proposed by the House and $227,242,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      The conference agreement appropriates $820,879,000 for 
Operation and Maintenance, Family Housing, Air Force, as 
proposed by the House and Senate.
      The conference agreement appropriates a total of 
$1,072,861,000 for Family Housing, Air Force, instead of 
$1,062,263,000 as proposed by the House and $1,048,121,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.

                      family housing, defense-wide

      The conference agreement appropriates $44,886,000 for 
Construction, Family Housing, Defense-wide, as proposed by the 
House and Senate.

         department of defense family housing improvement fund

      The conference agreement provides no appropriation for 
the Department of Defense Family Housing Improvement Fund, as 
proposed by the House and Senate. Transfer authority is 
provided for the execution of any qualifying project under 
privatization authority, which resides in the Fund.
      Contractor Support for Family Housing Privatization.--The 
conferees are concerned about the Army spending excessive 
amounts on contractor support to evaluateand develop family 
housing privatization proposals. Therefore, the Deputy Under Secretary 
of Defense (Installations) is to review quarterly, and report to the 
appropriate Committees of Congress, the expenses of each component to 
ensure excessive amounts are not being spent on contractor support.
      In the future, amounts appropriated into the Family 
Housing Improvement Fund will be the sole source of funds to 
finance the operation of the former Housing Revitalization 
Support Office. It is the conferees' intent that Family Housing 
funds will be the sole source of funds to develop, evaluate, 
and oversee privatization deals. The conferees direct the Under 
Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) to determine if these funds 
are best appropriated out of Family Housing Operation and 
Maintenance or Family Housing Planning and Design and to 
provide consistency among the Services in the fiscal year 2002 
budget submission. In addition, these funds will be separately 
identified and justified as a sub-element account. This sub-
element is considered a congressional interest item and may not 
be increased from the amount enacted without the prior approval 
of the Committees on Appropriations.
      Reporting Requirements.--The conferees are concerned that 
the 21-day period of review prior to entering a privatization 
contract is too limited, and is extending this review period to 
a 45-day period. The Service Secretary concerned may not enter 
into any contract until after the end of the 45-day period 
beginning on the date the Secretary concerned submits written 
notice of the nature and terms of the contract to the 
appropriate committees of Congress.
      To clarify existing reporting requirements, this 45-day 
notification requirement applies to any project, regardless of 
whether it is financed entirely by transfer of funds into the 
Family Housing Improvement Fund, or it is fully financed within 
funds available in the Family Housing Improvement Fund, or it 
is funded by combining transferred funds with funds available 
in the Family Housing Improvement Fund.
      In addition, no transfer of appropriated funds into the 
account may take place until after the end of the 45-day period 
beginning on the date the Secretary of Defense submits written 
notice and justification for the transfer to the appropriate 
committees of Congress. The House and Senate Appropriations 
Committees expect to receive prior notification of all such 
transfers of funds.
      The Department is to continue its quarterly reports on 
the status of privatization projects.

             base realignment and closure account, part iv

      The conference agreement appropriates $1,024,369,000 for 
the Base Realignment and Closure Account, Part IV, instead of 
$1,174,369,000 as proposed by the House and Senate.
      Unliquidated Obligations.--The conferees recommend a 
reduction of $150,000,000 to the Base Realignment and Closure 
Account, Part IV. This reduction is based on slow budget 
execution and large amounts of unliquidated obligations. At the 
time the fiscal year 2001 budget estimate was being developed, 
the Department had $1,600,000,000 in reported unliquidated 
obligations in the Base Realignment and Closure account. Of 
this amount, $115,000,000 was appropriated prior to fiscal year 
1995. The majority of the unliquidated funds resulted from 
environmental cleanup activities that were carried out more 
slowly than planned or determined not to be necessary.
      California--Fort Ord: Thermochemical Conversion.--The 
conferees are concerned about the environmental challenges 
associated with the base closure re-use issues at Fort Ord in 
California and the disposal of asbestos, PCB, impregnated 
asbestos, lead-based paint and other hazardous construction 
material. The conferees are aware of a cost-competitive 
environmentally safe process that offers great potential for 
addressing the unique problems at Fort Ord. This thermochemical 
conversion process, which changes asbestos and other 
construction material to a non-hazardous mineral, has been 
demonstrated by the Department of Energy, validated by the Navy 
at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Washington and approved by 
the Environmental Protection Agency. Accordingly, the conferees 
direct the Department of the Army to develop and operate a 
thermochemical conversion pilot plant at Fort Ord for 
remediation of hazardous material generated by the activities 
of the Fort Ord Re-use Authority.
      Construction Projects: Administrative Provision.--The 
conferees agree that any transfer of funds which exceeds 
reprogramming thresholds for any construction project financed 
by any Base Realignment and Closure Account shall be subject to 
a 21-day notification to the Committees, and shall not be 
subject to reprogramming procedure.

                          classified programs

      In conjunction with the submission of the fiscal year 
2001 budget request, the President requested fiscal year 2000 
emergency supplemental appropriations for a number of 
classified activities. In addition, on May 18, 2000, the 
Director of the Office of Management and Budget forwarded to 
the Congress a classified request regarding proposed fiscal 
year 2000 funding adjustments in support of counter-terrorism 
activities. The conferees' recommendations regarding these 
requests are summarized in a classified annex to this statement 
of managers.

                   shared reconnaissance pod (sharp)

      The conferees agree with the House language concerning 
the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) project within the SHARP 
program. The conferees do not agree to the House language 
regarding enhancements to the TARPS-CD system to meet future 
fleet operational requirements.

                    General Provisions, This Chapter

      The conferees agree to retain section 101, as proposed by 
the House, which provides the Department of Defense authority 
to pay service members Basic Allowance for Housing at the rates 
in effect on December 31, 1999 during fiscal year 2000.
      The conferees agree to retain section 102, as proposed by 
the House, which provides $1,556,200,000 in emergency 
appropriations for the ``Defense-Wide Working Capital Fund'' 
due to increases in the price of bulk fuel.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 103, as 
proposed by the House, and provide $90,000,000 in new

These funds are fully offset by rescissions in section 123 of 
this chapter.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 104, as 
proposed by the House, and provide $163,700,000 in new

bill and an additional $38,700,000 as proposed in DoD 
reprogramming request FY 00-21PA. The reprogramming request is 
hereby denied as it has been obviated by this Act. These funds 
are fully offset by rescissions in section 123 of this chapter.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 105 and 
106, as proposed by the House, and recommend $615,600,000 in 
emergency appropriations and requisite legal authority to cover

      The conferees continue to be concerned about violations 
of the Department's financial regulations and potential 
violations of the Anti-Deficiency Act in the administration and 
execution of the TRICARE program. Therefore, the conferees 
direct the DoD Inspector General, in coordination with the 
General Accounting Office (GAO), to conduct an investigation 
into the execution and administration of DHP funds. The 
investigation should examine: possible violations of the Anti-
Deficiency Act; evasion of DoD financial regulations; and the 
overall management of the TRICARE program. The conferees 
further direct the Department to provide a report to the 
congressional defense committees within sixty days after the 
enactment of this Act regarding the extent and scope of any 
violations of fiscal law or departmental regulations.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 108, as 
proposed by the House, which provides $27,000,000 in emergency 
appropriations for the Basic Allowance for Housing program.

proposed by the House, which provides $357,288,000 in emergency

direct that of the amount provided in this section, $73,826,000 
in the military personnel accounts and $80,062,000 in the 
operation and maintenance accounts shall be immediately 
available for obligation to meet requirements identified by the 
Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) in his June 12, 2000 
submission of DD Form 1415-1 to the congressional defense 
committees. The remaining funds, shown below by appropriations

paragraph), which provides $220,000,000 in emergency 
appropriations for ``Operation and Maintenance, Navy'', only 
for the unfunded backlog of ship depot maintenance that has 
emerged in execution of the fiscal year 2000 ship depot 
maintenance program.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 111, as 
proposed by the House, which provides $503,900,000 in emergency 
appropriations to meet urgent, unfunded requirements in support 
of deployed forces, as follows:

      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 112, as 
proposed by the Senate, which provides $7,000,000 in new 
appropriations for biometrics information assurance programs. 
These funds are fully offset by rescissions in section 123 of

only for the Patriot Advanced Capability--3 (PAC-3) program. 
The conferees believe that completing the full qualification of 
the PAC-3 missile against air breathing targets is essential. 
The conferees direct that the $75,000,000 provided for the PAC-
3 program may be transferred to the appropriate account to 
complete testing against aircraft and cruise missile targets, 
to maintain a robust countermeasure capability, to improve the 
producibility of the missile, and to purchase additional 
missiles.
      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 114, as 
proposed by the Senate, which appropriates $300,000 only for

proposed by the Senate, which provides $61,500,000 in emergency 
appropriations for operations in East Timor and Mozambique.

funding provided in that Act applicable to SOFA claims.
      The conferees agree to a new general provision, section

                    General Provisions--This Chapter

      Corps of Engineers Reorganization.--The conference 
agreement does not include language proposed by the Senate 
regarding management reforms of the U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers. However, the conferees are extremely concerned about 
the management reforms initially imposed upon the Corps of 
Engineers in March of this year by the Secretary of the Army 
and subsequently suspended due to lack of adequate and 
appropriate coordination and consultation with the Congress. It 
is the conferees' strong conviction and expectation that any 
such management reforms, if yet contemplated by the 
Administration, will have full benefit of consultation with the 
Congress in developmental stages and prior to implementation.
      In recent months, actions by Administration officials, as 
manifested by the proposed management reforms and other public 
pronouncements, suggest premature conclusions and findings may 
have been reached regarding as yet unsubstantiated allegations 
of wrong-doing by Corps of Engineers officials related to 
studies and initiatives for maintaining and providing the 
Nation's water resources infrastructure. Results of on-going 
investigations related to these charges must be made available 
and considered before any reforms are contemplated. Any actions 
carried out by the Administration to change the existing 
management and oversight structure and existing delegations and 
functions involving the Corps of Engineers without prior and 
satisfactory coordination with the Congress will not be 
received favorably and may cause the Congress to revisit this 
issue and undertake an appropriate response.
      Waste Isolation Pilot Plan.--The conference agreement 
includes statutory language proposed by the Senate providing 
that funds in this or any other Act and hereafter may not be 
used to pay on behalf of the United States or a contractor or 
subcontractor of the United States for posting a bond or 
fulfilling any other financial responsibility requirement 
relating to the closure or post-closure care and monitoring of 
the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in New Mexico.
      Central Arizona Project.--The conference agreement 
includes a provision proposed by the Senate which states none 
of the funds provided in this or any other Act may be used to 
further reallocate Central Arizona Project water or to prepare 
an Environmental Assessment, Environmental Impact Statement, or 
Record of Decision providing for a reallocation of Central 
Arizona Project water until Congress enacts legislation 
authorizing and directing the Secretary of the Interior to make 
allocations and enter into contracts for delivery of Central 
Arizona Project water.
      Congressional Direction.--The conference agreement 
includes statutory language directing that funds provided in 
Public Law 106-60 and prior Energy and Water Development 
Appropriations Acts be made available for the specified 
institutions and purposes.
      Nuclear Regulatory Commission.--The conference agreement 
includes statutory language proposed by the House providing 
that no funds appropriated in fiscal year 2000 to the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission (NRC) may be used to relocate, or to plan 
or prepare for the relocation of, the functions or personnel of 
the Technical Training Center from its location in Chattanooga, 
Tennessee. The conference agreement extends the language to 
fiscal year 2001.

                               CHAPTER 3

                         Military Construction

                    General Provisions, This Chapter

      Section 301. Recommends $19,048,000 as a contingent 
emergency for military construction and family housing due to 
storm related damage.
      Section 302. Recommends $1,000,000 as a contingent 
emergency for Military Construction, Defense-wide, to augment 
the Corps of Engineers' planning and design work associated 
with the National Missile Defense system.
      Section 303. Provides $35,000,000 for the acquisition of 
land at Blount Island, Florida and rescinds $35,000,000 of 
funds provided in the Military Construction Appropriations Act, 
1996 (Public Law 104-32).

                               CHAPTER 4

                      DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

                              Coast Guard

      The conference agreement provides $700,000,000 in 
supplemental appropriations for the U.S. Coast Guard, including 
$655,000,000 designated as contingent emergency funding. The 
conference agreement requires a Presidential declaration before 
any of the emergency funding is available for obligation.

                           operating expenses

      The conference agreement includes an emergency 
appropriation of $77,000,000 for Coast Guard ``Operating 
expenses'', instead of $262,446,000 as proposed by the Senate 
and $37,000,000 as proposed by the House. The funds are made 
available until September 30, 2001, and are only available upon 
designation by the President of an emergency requirement. The 
conference agreement allocates these funds in the manner 
recommended by the Secretary of Transportation and the 
Commandant of the Coast Guard, as shown below:
        Activity                                                  Amount
Health care.............................................     $18,000,000
Basic allowance for housing.............................      15,000,000
Military pay............................................       5,000,000
Cost of living increases in high cost areas.............       2,000,000
Recruiting/retention bonuses............................      15,000,000
Hurricane-damaged facilities............................       8,000,000
Operational fuel/unit level readiness...................      13,000,000
Fixed wing aviator retention bonuses....................       1,000,000
                    --------------------------------------------------------
                    ____________________________________________________
          Total.........................................      77,000,000

      The conferees note that some of these funding 
requirements relate to changed military personnel entitlements 
enacted in the fiscal year 2000 National Defense Authorization 
Act. The Coast Guard had adequate time to advise the 
Appropriations Committees of these costs prior to conference on 
the fiscal year 2000 Department of Transportation and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Bill, and to include them in the fiscal 
year 2001 budget estimate. In the future, the conferees expect 
the Coast Guard to ensure timely update of its budget 
estimates, to avoid the need for supplemental appropriations.

              acquisition, construction, and improvements

      The conference agreement includes an emergency 
appropriation of $578,000,000 for acquisition of Coast Guard 
capital assets. The funding is to remain available until 
expended and is to be distributed as follows:
        Project                                                   Amount
C-130J long range maritime patrol aircraft..............    $468,000,000
Great Lakes icebreaker replacement......................     110,000,000
                    --------------------------------------------------------
                    ____________________________________________________
          Total.........................................     578,000,000

      C-130J aircraft.--The conference agreement includes 
$468,000,000, as proposed by the Senate, for acquisition of six 
C-130J long-range maritime patrol aircraft as authorized under 
section 812(b) of the Western Hemisphere Drug Elimination Act 
(P.L. 105-277). These aircraft are capable of defense 
requirements and other Coast Guard missions. The conference 
agreement specifies that this acquisition shall not influence 
the procurement strategy, program requirements, or downselect 
decision pertaining to the Deepwater Capability Replacement 
Project, as proposed by the Senate.
      Great Lakes icebreaker replacement.--The conference 
agreement includes $110,000,000 for the Great Lakes icebreaker 
replacement. These funds will support the costs of design, 
construction, inspection, validation, testing and project 
administration associated with acquisition of a new multi-
purpose icebreaker to replace the USCGC Mackinaw. After 55 
years of service, the Mackinaw has escalating operating and 
maintenance costs and declining reliability, and is scheduled 
to be decommissioned in 2006. New construction of a vessel 
designed to perform heavy icebreaking and maintain floating 
aids-to-navigation will expand the efficiency and reliability 
of Coast Guard operations in the Great Lakes.

                               CHAPTER 5

                     General Provisions--This Title

      Section 501. The conference agreement appropriates 
$25,000,000 for the Agency for International Development, 
``International Disaster Assistance'' for rehabilitation and 
reconstruction assistance for Mozambique, Madagascar, and 
southern Africa, to remain available until expended. The entire 
amount is designated by Congress as an emergency requirement 
pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and 
Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 and shall be available 
only to the extent an official budget request that includes 
designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement is 
transmitted by the President to the Congress.
      Section 502. The conference agreement appropriates 
$50,000,000 for ``Assistance for Eastern Europe and the Baltic 
States'' to remain available until September 30, 2001. These 
funds shall only be available for assistance for Montenegro and 
Croatia, and not to exceed $12,400,000 for assistance for 
Kosovo for police activities. The entire amount is designated 
by the Congress as an emergency requirement pursuant to section 
251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
Control Act of 1985, and is subject to the regular notification 
procedures of the Committees on Appropriations.

     TITLE II--NATURAL DISASTER ASSISTANCE AND OTHER SUPPLEMENTAL 
                             APPROPRIATIONS

                               CHAPTER 1

                       DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

                        Office of the Secretary

      The conference agreement includes an additional 
$1,350,000 for implementation of the Livestock Mandatory Price 
Reporting Act of 1999. This amount will offset additional costs 
to USDA agencies to implement this Act. Unfunded agency 
requirements include: $550,000 for the Economic Research 
Service; $200,000 for the Foreign Agricultural Service; 
$400,000 for the National Agricultural Statistics Service; and 
$200,000 for the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards 
Administration. Although the $4,700,000 in implementation 
funding sought by the Administration for fiscal year 2000 was 
provided by Public Law 106-113, these funds have not been 
distributed among all agencies responsible for administration 
of this Act.
      The conferees note that language contained in Public Law 
106-78 requires that the Department of Agriculture obtain 
Congressional approval before funds for the common computing 
environment can be spent. The conferees hereby approve those 
funds for obligation.

                          Farm Service Agency

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement includes an additional 
$77,560,000, to remain available until expended, as proposed by

$40,000,000 for Section 515 rental housing, as proposed by the 
House and Senate.

                       rental assistance program

that makes up to $81,000,000 of Commodity Credit Corporation 
funds available to be used to forgive loans to producer-owned 
associations or producers that suffered losses from natural 
disasters, as proposed by the House and Senate.
      Section 2102. The conference agreement provides authority 
for the Secretary of Agriculture to use Commodity Credit 
Corporation funds to offset the assessment on peanut producers

                               CHAPTER 2

                         DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

             Salaries and Expenses, United States Attorneys

      The conference agreement includes $12,000,000, to remain 
available until expended, as a contingent emergency 
appropriation, to be divided equally between the States of 
Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California to reimburse county 
and municipal governments only for Federal costs associated 
with the handling and processing of illegal immigration and 
drug and alien smuggling cases. The use of these funds is 
limited to court costs, courtroom technology, the building of 
holding spaces, administrative expenses, and indigent defense 
costs.

                    Drug Enforcement Administration

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement includes $181,000,000, to remain 
available until expended, as a contingent emergency 
appropriation, to be deposited into the Telecommunications 
Carrier Compliance Fund for implementation of the 
Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA). The 
conferees note that narcotics trafficking investigations are 
increasingly dependent on the use of intercepted 
communications, accounting for 72% of all court-authorized 
electronic surveillance actions. As criminal organizations 
utilize advanced technologies to elude law enforcement, U.S. 
law enforcement's current drug intelligence and investigative 
capabilities have been eroded. Therefore, the conference 
agreement includes funding to implement CALEA to correct this 
problem to ensure these capabilities are maintained in 
accordance with current statutory requirements and deadlines.

and (3) to provide assistance to communities that are dependent 
on such fishery and have suffered losses from such disaster. 
The remaining funds provided for the Long Island Sound lobster 
fishery disaster are available for research into the causes of 
the disaster. The conferees expect NOAA to submit a spending 
plan prior to release of these funds.
      The conference agreement also includes $5,000,000 as a 
contingent emergency to provide relief from disaster in the 
West Coast groundfish fishery. The conferees expect that this 
amount shall be divided between the States of California, 
Oregon, and Washington in proportion to the impact of the 
disaster in each State. The amounts provided to these States 
shall be available for the following purposes: (1) to pay 
compensation to individuals who have suffered a direct negative 
impact from the West Coast groundfish fisheries disaster, (2) 
to provide direct sustaining aid to such fishermen, and (3) to 
provide assistance to communities that are dependent on the 
West Coast groundfish fisheries and have suffered losses from 
such disaster. The conferees direct NOAA to submit a spending 
plan prior to the release of these funds. The conference 
agreement also includes $1,000,000 as a contingent emergency 
appropriation for repairs to the NOAA hurricane reconnaissance

                               CHAPTER 3

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

                       Bureau of Land Management

                        wildland fire management

      The conference agreement provides $200,000,000 in 
emergency funding for wildland fire management instead of 
$100,000,000 as proposed by the House and by the Senate. Of the 
amount provided, $100,000,000 is contingent on receipt of a 
budget request that includes a Presidential designation of the 
amount requested as an emergency requirement pursuant to the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as 
amended.

                            land acquisition

      The conference agreement provides $2,000,000 in emergency 
funding for land acquisition for the Douglas Tract along the 
Potomac River in Southern Maryland. Approximately 1,000 acres 
of undeveloped riverfront land is available from a willing 
seller. This land is of significant historic value with Native 
American and Civil War sites. Preservation of the land will 
also help preserve wildlife habitat and unique wetland areas. 
The President's budget request for fiscal year 2001 included 
$3,000,000 for this purchase. The entire amount is contingent 
on receipt of a budget request that includes a Presidential 
designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement 
pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control 
Act of 1985, as amended.

          Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement

                       regulation and technology

      The conference agreement provides $9,821,000 in emergency 
funding for regulation and technology as proposed by the Senate 
instead of no funding as proposed by the House. The funds are 
for the surface mining regulatory program of the State of West 
Virginia. The entire amount is contingent on receipt of a 
budget request that includes a Presidential designation of the 
entire amount as an emergency requirement pursuant to the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as 
amended.
      The managers are concerned that the State of West 
Virginia lacks sufficient funding and staffing resources to 
regulate the effects of surface coal mining operations within 
the State pursuant to the Surface Mining Control and 
Reclamation Act (SMCRA). Recent litigation and the commencement 
of a formal review by the office of Surface Mining related to 
the State's regulatory program demonstrate that unless 
additional funds are provided immediately, a Federal takeover 
of these responsibilities may be imminent. If a takeover occurs 
it will increase the costs to the Federal Government for 
regulating coal mining in West Virginia and cause major 
disruptions on the ground. With the additional resources 
provided in this Act, the State will have the capability to 
administer an adequate regulatory program to enforce 
environmental laws and have the necessary tools to perform 
technical reviews of permit applications effectively and 
efficiently.
      Accordingly, the managers are providing a total of 
$9,821,000 to the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and 
Enforcement to ensure that the State has adequate funds to 
carry out its regulatory responsibilities under SMCRA. Of this 
amount, $6,222,000 is for the Office of Surface Mining to enter 
into a cooperative agreement with the West Virginia Division of 
Environmental Protection to enhance program capabilities, 
including developing a geospatial database to ensure 
appropriate geologic and hydrologic sampling, performing 
watershed modeling, and other programmatic improvements to 
ensure the State is able to meet its regulatory requirements 
under SMCRA.
      A total of $3,599,000 is provided to address the West 
Virginia Office's staffing deficiencies. These funds are 
subject to the 50 percent matching requirement of section 
705(a) of SMCRA. The managers note that West Virginia operates 
its program with fewer staff and a smaller budget than 
surrounding States with similar workloads. The controversy over 
mountaintop removal mining has been a catalyst for 
demonstrating weaknesses in the West Virginia regulatory 
program.
      The managers appreciate that the Office of Surface Mining 
and the State of West Virginia have worked together closely to 
characterize the deficiencies in the State's regulatory 
program. The managers expect this close cooperation to continue 
as the parties address and resolve program deficiencies. The 
managers direct the Office of Surface Mining, in conjunction 
with the State, to keep the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations apprised of the efforts made to correct these 
problems in the State's regulatory program.

      The conference agreement provides $2,000,000 in emergency 
funding for the national forest system instead of $5,759,000 as 
proposed by the Senate and no funding as proposed by the House. 
The funds are for storm damage repairs in National Forests in 
Minnesota and Wisconsin. The entire amount is contingent on 
receipt of a budget request that includes a Presidential 
designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement 
pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control 
Act of 1985, as amended.

                        wildland fire management

      The conference agreement provides $150,000,000 in 
emergency funding for wildland fire management as proposed by 
the House instead of $1,620,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
entire amount is contingent on receipt of a budget request that 
includes a Presidential designation of the entire amount as an 
emergency requirement pursuant to the Balanced Budget and 
Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended.

                    General Provisions--This Chapter

      Section 2301 provides authority for the Indian Health 
Service to release funds appropriated in fiscal year 1999 for 
construction of a clinic in King Cove, Alaska as proposed by 
the Senate. Land owned by the city has been designated for the 
facility and this language is needed to permit IHS to use that 
site.
      Section 2302 requires the Secretary of Energy to fund a 
particulate monitoring program as directed by the Congress in a 
report accompanying a previous appropriations Act. Funds were 
made available for this purpose in Public Law 105-277 under the 
Fossil Energy Research and Development account. The Secretary 
of Energy has instituted a policy wherein he has to approve any 
Congressionally identified project prior to the release of 
funds. This policy has resulted in a bureaucratic morass and 
prevented the timely initiation of important research. The 
Secretary of Energy is urged to reexamine this policy.
      The conference agreement does not include language 
proposed by the Senate addressing the designation of land for a 
jetty and sand transfer system for the Oregon Inlet in North 
Carolina. The managers will continue to examine this issue and 
consider it within the context of the fiscal year 2001 
appropriations bill for the Department of the Interior and 
Related Agencies.
      Section 2303 modifies language proposed by the Senate to 
provide interim compensation for fishermen, crew members, and 
processors affected by restrictions on Dungeness crab fishing 
in Glacier Bay National Park, AK. The modification limits these 
payments to losses incurred in 2000 except for Buy N Pack 
Seafoods which is eligible for compensation for 1999 and 2000.

      Section 2402. The conference agreement includes a 
provision as proposed by the House to remove from the 
Department of Education and the Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention the ability to carry over salary and expense funds 
for an additional quarter. The Senate bill contains no similar 
provision.
      Section 2403. The conference agreement includes technical 
corrections in the conforming amendments on the set-asides in 
the Welfare-to-Work Amendments of 1999 as proposed by both the 
House and Senate.
      Section 2404. The conference agreement includes technical 
corrections to the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and the 
Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Assistance Act of 1998 
as proposed by the Senate. The House bill contains no similar 
provision.
      Section 2405. The conference agreement includes a 
provision not proposed by either the House or Senate to make 
funds for certain technical assistance activities related to 
school reform available at an earlier date.
      Section 2406. The conference agreement includes a 
provision, as proposed by the Senate in the Military 
Construction Appropriations Act, 2001, amending section 
508(f)(1) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to extend the date 
that the Federal government must provide equal access to 
disabled federal employees and disabled members of the public 
seeking information or services. The House bill contains no 
similar provision.
      Section 2407. The conference agreement provides 
$3,500,000 for the improvement and modernization of Saint 
John's Lutheran Hospital, Libby, Montana. It also includes 
$8,000,000 for an Economic Development Administration grant to 
the city of Libby, Montana. The conference agreement also 
designates the entire amount as an emergency pursuant to 
section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
Deficit Control Act of 1985.

                               CHAPTER 5

                           LEGISLATIVE BRANCH

                        ARCHITECT OF THE CAPITOL

                     Capitol Buildings and Grounds

                              fire safety

      The conference agreement appropriates $17,480,000 to the 
Architect of the Capitol for fire safety projects as proposed 
by the Senate instead of $15,166,000 as proposed by the House. 
The funds are designated as emergency requirements as proposed 
by the Senate.

                    General Provisions--This Chapter

      Section 2501. The conferees have amended language 
proposed by the Senate regarding the Trade Deficit Review 
Commission. The 3-month extension in the due date of the final 
report has been agreed to; the new subparagraph contained in 
subsection (a) of the provision in the Senate bill has been 
dropped without prejudice.

                               CHAPTER 6

           DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AND RELATED AGENCIES

                      DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

                              Coast Guard

              acquisition, construction, and improvements

                    (including rescission of funds)

      The conference agreement includes $45,000,000, to remain 
available until expended, for acquisition of one C-37A command 
and control aircraft for use by the U.S. Coast Guard, as 
authorized under section 812(b) of the Western Hemisphere Drug 
Elimination Act (P.L. 105-277). The existing command and 
control aircraft is sixteen years old and experiencing 
significant reliability and maintenance problems. In addition, 
with an average flight cost of $1,500 per hour (40 percent 
higher than current models), this aged aircraft unnecessarily 
diverts needed funds from other Coast Guard operating missions. 
The conference agreement fully offsets this appropriation 
through sale of the current aircraft (estimated by the Coast 
Guard at $7,000,000) and rescission of other funds totaling 
$38,000,000. The conferees assume that sale of the VC-11A will 
first be offered to the vendor of the replacement aircraft. 
Rescinded funds include $26,600,000 in unobligated balances 
appropriated to the Office of Management and Budget to resolve 
Year 2000 computer problems, as proposed by the House, and 
$11,400,000 from unobligated balances of Coast Guard 
``Acquisition, construction, and improvements''.
      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$11,400,000 in available balances from previous appropriations 
Acts under ``Acquisition, construction, and improvements''. As 
of May 31, 2000, the Coast Guard had an unobligated balance of 
$327,404,000 in this appropriation, including regular funds, 
leftover disaster relief funds, and no-year emergency 
supplemental appropriations. The conferees believe a fraction 
of these unused funds can be used to offset higher priority 
requirements in the conference agreement without adversely 
impacting the service's missions. The conferees direct that 
none of these funds be taken from the Great Lakes icebreaker 
replacement project, and that the Coast Guard submit 
information on proposed rescissions to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations prior to implementation.

                    Federal Aviation Administration

                               operations

                    (airport and airway trust fund)

      The conference agreement includes a contingent emergency 
appropriation of $75,000,000 for additional operating and 
maintenance costs of the Federal Aviation Administration, 
available until September 30, 2001, instead of $77,000,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The first priority for these additional 
funds should be the hiring of aviation safety inspectors and 
medical certification personnel.

                             RELATED AGENCY

                  National Transportation Safety Board

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement provides $19,739,000 for the 
National Transportation Safety Board for emergency expenses 
associated with the investigation of Egypt Air Flight 990 and 
Alaska Air Flight 261 accidents. These funds will compensate 
wreckage location and recovery facilities, technical support, 
testing, and wreckage mock-up. Both the House and the Senate 
bills provided $24,739,000 for investigative costs. Since 
enactment of each bill, the Arab Republic of Egypt has agreed 
to reimburse the National Transportation Safety Board 
$5,000,000 for Egypt Air Flight 990 wreckage location and 
recovery, decreasing the supplemental needs of the NTSB. The 
conference agreement requires the Secretary of the Treasury to 
reduce this appropriation by an amount equal to any subsequent 
reimbursement by the Arab Republic of Egypt for wreckage 
location and recovery, family assistance, and interagency 
agreements for up to $3,983,000. The Egyptian government 
currently is reviewing the additional expenses.
      Within the funds provided, up to $10,000 shall be made 
available for the location and recovery of wreckage of N41078, 
as proposed in the Senate report.

                    General Provisions--This Chapter

      Section 2601. The conferees have included a provision 
that makes available a total of $35,200,000 for seven bridge 
projects from funds previously made available to the department 
under section 104(a) of title 23, U.S.C. These projects were 
earlier identified in the conference agreement accompanying 
H.R. 2084, the fiscal year 2000 Department of Transportation 
and Related Agencies Appropriations bill, which directed the 
Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to distribute 
discretionary bridge program funds for certain specified 
projects and activities. The office of the secretary and the 
FHWA, without consulting or notifying the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations, released all discretionary bridge 
funding for fiscal year 2000 and did not consider fully the 
projects specified in the accompanying report. These actions 
were unconscionable and remain unacceptable. The conferees 
assert that the department, particularly the office of the 
secretary, must comply with both the letter and the spirit of 
the law, which requires the department to notify the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations not less than three full 
business days before any discretionary grant award, letter of 
intent, or full funding grant agreement totaling $1,000,000 or 
more is announced by the department or its modal 
administrations from: (1) any discretionary program of the 
Federal Highway Administration other than the emergency relief 
program; (2) the airport improvement program of the Federal 
Aviation Administration; or (3) any program of the Federal 
Transit Administration other than the formula grants and fixed 
guideway modernization programs.
      Section 2602. The conference agreement rescinds 
$26,600,000 in unobligated balances of funds appropriated to 
the Office of Management and Budget pursuant to Pubic Law 105-
277 and subsequently transferred to the Department of 
Transportation for Year 2000 conversion of Federal information 
technology systems and related expenses, as proposed by the 
House. These funds are no longer needed for their original 
purpose and are available to offset higher priority Coast Guard 
capital needs.
      Section 2603. The conference agreement includes an 
emergency appropriation of $2,000,000 to the Office of the 
Assistant Secretary for Policy, U.S. Department of 
Transportation, to be transferred to the Environmental 
Protection Agency to carry out a telecommuting pilot program.
      Section 2604. The conference agreement includes a 
provision that amends the allowable federal share requirement 
for projects for the elimination of hazards of railway-highway 
crossings funded under the surface transportation program.
      Section 2605. The conference agreement includes 
$2,000,000 for planning, preliminary engineering and design of 
the Metro-North Danbury to Norwalk commuter rail line re-
electrification project in Connecticut.
      Section 2606. The conference agreement includes 
$3,000,000 for the Second Avenue Subway in New York City, New 
York
      Section 2607. The conference agreement includes $500,000 
for a study of improvements to Highway 8, from the Minnesota 
border to Highway 51, in the State of Wisconsin.
      Section 2608. The conference agreement includes 
$1,000,000 for reconstruction of, and improvements to, Halls 
Mill Road in Monmouth County, New Jersey.

                     General Provision--This Title

      Section 2101 allows members of the Pueblo of San 
Ildefonso and the Pueblo of Santa Clara to collect plants and 
minerals in the Bandelier National Monument. The extensive 
areas burned by the Cerro Grande fire have severely reduced the 
availability of local plants, clays and soils traditionally 
used by these Pueblos. To allow their traditional ceremonies to 
continue uninterrupted, it is necessary to allow enrolled 
members of both Pueblos access to plant and mineral resources 
that are available in the Bandelier National Monument at 
quantities greater than allowed by current regulations of the 
National Park Service. These activities would be consistent 
with applicable laws governing the Monument.

                               CHAPTER 7

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

                          Departmental Offices

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree to include $24,900,000 as a 
contingent emergency appropriation for the establishment of an 
in-service firearms training facility.

                       Firearms Training Facility

      The conferees direct that the Secretary of the Treasury 
undertake the establishment of an in-service firearms training 
facility in West Virginia for use by U.S. Customs Service and 
other law enforcement agencies. The conferees note with grave 
concern the serious threats that have arisen at U.S. borders 
with respect to attempted terrorist infiltrations and the 
increasing complexity of the interdiction of illegal drugs into 
this country. The Treasury Department has approximately 20,000 
armed officers engaged in a wide variety of dangerous law 
enforcement activities. Because of the need to provide in-
service firearms training for armed Treasury personnel, the 
conferees have included $24,900,000 to accelerate the design 
and construction of a firearms complex on land currently owned 
by the Fish and Wildlife Service. The Secretary of the Treasury 
is authorized to designate a lead agency to oversee the 
development, implementation and operation of the facility and 
the conduct of training. The complex would also be available 
for use by the Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park 
Service, certain other law enforcement personnel and selected 
State and local enforcement personnel. The conferees have also 
included language to designate the National Park Service to 
manage the entire tract of land and to make available a 
suitable portion of the land for use for the training facility, 
and language to assure that the training to be conducted at the 
new training firearms facility will be configured in such a way 
as to not duplicate or displace any federal law enforcement 
programs of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center 
(FLETC). Likewise, no training currently being conducted at a 
FLETC facility will be moved to the West Virginia site. The 
entire amount is contingent upon receipt of a budget request 
that includes a Presidential designation of the amount 
requested as an emergency requirement pursuant to the Balanced 
Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended.

                      United States Secret Service

                         Salaries and Expenses

      The conferees agree to include $10,000,000 as a 
contingent emergency appropriation for the United States Secret 
Service's costs related to planning, coordination and 
implementation of security for national special security and 
major protective events.

                    National Security Special Events

      The conferees are extremely concerned that the 
Administration has failed to request funding for the Secret 
Service to provide protective services for PDD 62, National 
Security Special Events (NSSE), causing significant budget 
shortfalls for the Secret Service. For example, the conferees 
are aware that the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City has 
long been officially designated as a NSSE but the 
Administration provided no funding for the Secret Service to 
carry out its mission as the lead agency responsible for 
planning and implementing overall security. The conferees note 
however, that the Administration did fund the FBI and FEMA for 
their role in the Winter Olympics. In order to address fiscal 
year 2000 shortfalls, the conferees provide $10,000,000 for 
costs associated with planning, coordination and implementation 
of security at the following major protective events: The World 
Trade Organization Meeting, the International Monetary Fund 
meeting, Operation Sail 2000, the Republican and Democratic 
National Conventions, the UN General Assembly 55-Millennium 
Assembly, and fiscal year 2000 costs related to the 2002 Winter 
Olympics. The conferees direct the Department of the Treasury 
to submit to the Committees on Appropriations, a budgeting plan 
for the Secret Service in regard to anticipated and 
unanticipated National Special Security Events for fiscal year 
2001 no later than September 1, 2000.

    EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT AND FUNDS APPROPRIATED TO THE 
                               PRESIDENT

                        Office of Administration

                         information technology

      The conferees agree to establish a new account within the 
Office of Administration and include $8,400,000 as a contingent 
emergency appropriation for the costs associated with the 
restoration and reconstruction of certain electronic mail 
messages and for inclusion of such messages in the Automated 
Records Management System. These funds were proposed by the 
President to be funded within the Office of Administration's 
Salaries and Expenses appropriation. Neither the House nor the 
Senate bills included these funds as the President's request 
was received after House and Senate consideration of the 
supplemental appropriations bills.

                        tape restoration project

      The conferees have established a new account for the 
necessary expenses of ongoing activities associated with the 
restoration and reconstruction of certain electronic mail 
messages and for inclusion in the Automated Records Management 
System, providing $8,400,000, to remain available until 
September 30, 2002. The conferees prohibit the obligation of 
these funds until the Office of Administration submits an 
independent verification and validation of the estimated costs 
of this project.
      The conferees are concerned by the escalation in 
estimated costs of this project, which have ranged from 
$3,000,000 to levels well in excess of that amount. To date, 
$4,800,000 has been provided to support ongoing work; combined 
with this supplemental appropriation, the total federal 
appropriation is $13,200,000. The conferees are concerned that, 
to date, estimates of total project costs have not been 
finalized and that an independent verification and validation 
of both the costs of specific phases of the reconstruction 
effort and the total project are not available. The conferees 
have included bill language prohibiting the obligation of funds 
until the Office of Administration submits to the Committees on 
Appropriations an independent verification and validation of 
the costs of the restoration project, including the final 
report prepared by the independent verification and validation 
contractor for both initial and projected cost estimates.
      It is not the intent of the conferees to delay or impede 
the ongoing restoration work; nonetheless, the conferees 
believe it is critical that all costs related to this project 
undergo an independent verification and validation process and 
that the findings of this process be reported to the Committees 
on Appropriations as expeditiously as possible. The conferees 
note the current monthly reporting requirements imposed by the 
House Committee on Appropriations in regards to the obligation 
of funds as well as other project activities. Should it be 
necessary, and in order to satisfy the requirements of the bill 
language without impeding ongoing work, the conferees are 
willing to consider releasing a portion of the funds upon 
receipt of interim verification and validation documents until 
the final report is prepared. These interim reports would be in 
addition to the monthly reports required by the House Committee 
on Appropriations. Should these interim reports become 
necessary, the Office of Administration is directed to 
establish, in consultation with the Committees on 
Appropriations, a schedule of milestones for the completion of 
the final report and the total release of funds.

                  automated records management system

      The conferees are concerned that contractor error may be 
a causal factor in the White House e-mails not being properly 
archived into the Automated Records Management System (ARMS), 
resulting in the present supplemental appropriation for 
reconstruction and restoration costs. The conferees fully 
expect the Executive Office of the President (EOP) to 
diligently pursue reimbursement from contractors if it is 
determined that their errors and/or negligence led to the 
present additional funding requirement. The conferees believe 
that the EOP should review contractor performance beginning 
with the ARMS project of 1994 and including all contractors 
responsible for operating and maintaining the information 
technology systems for the EOP. The conferees direct the Office 
of Administration to report back within 6 months of the date of 
enactment of this Act to the Committees on Appropriations on 
the performance of the contractors responsible for operating 
and maintaining the information technology systems. The 
performance report should include an evaluation of whether or 
not the contractor has legally defaulted and on any actions to 
be taken by the EOP to recoup the costs associated with the 
reconstruction and restoration effort currently underway.

                          INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

                    General Services Administration

                         policy and operations

      The conferees agree to include $3,300,000 as a contingent 
emergency appropriation for the Salt Lake 2002 Winter Olympic 
and Paralympic Game doping control program.

                    General Provisions--This Chapter

      Section 2701. The conferees agree to include a provision 
waiving anti-pooling provisions for the fiscal year 2000 
administrative costs of the Counterdrug Intelligence Executive 
Secretariat.
      Section 2702. The conferees agree to include a provision 
to rescind and reappropriate certain unobligated balances with 
the Internal Revenue Service's Information Technology 
Investments account.
      Section 2703. The conferees agree to include a provision 
authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to address clerical 
errors in fiscal year 1999 which resulted in the Hospital 
Insurance (HI) Trust Fund being over-invested while the 
Supplementary Medical Insurance (SMI) Trust Fund was under-
invested. The conferees understand that the principal amount of 
the bookkeeping errors has been corrected, but that the over-
investment resulted in the HI Trust Fund being credited with 
excess interest earnings, while the under-investment resulted 
in the SMI Trust Fund being deprived of interest earnings. The 
conferees further understand that these bookkeeping errors have 
not affected Medicare payments in any way, nor did the errors 
result in any moneys being erroneously paid out by the 
Government. Nevertheless, the conferees believe that the errors 
should be corrected in full to ensure the correct allocation of 
funds among the HI Trust Funds, the SMI Trust Fund, and the 
Treasury General Fund.
      Section 2704. The conferees agree to include a technical 
modification to Public Law 106-113 to make a direct payment to 
the United States Olympic Committee through the United States 
Anti-Doping Agency from funds appropriated for fiscal year 
2000.
      Section 2705. The conferees agree to include a provision 
to rescind and reappropriate certain unobligated balances 
within the Salaries and Expenses account of the U.S. Secret 
Service.
      Section 2706. The conferees agree to include a technical 
modification to Public Law 106-58 clarifying language in Senate 
Report 106-87 on the Treasury and General Government 
Appropriations Act, 2000, to authorize the General Services 
Administration to provide funds appropriated in fiscal year 
2000 for the Nebraska State Patrol Digital Distance Learning 
project.

                               CHAPTER 8

              DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

                   Community Planning and Development

                   community development block grants

      Inserts language as proposed by the House making a 
technical correction on a specific economic development 
initiative grant provided under title II of Public Law 106-74.
      Inserts language proposed by the Senate and modified by 
the conferees making a technical correction on a specific 
neighborhood initiative grant provided under title II of Public 
Law 106-74.
      Inserts new language providing $27,500,000 for five 
targeted economic development initiatives.

                  home investment partnerships program

      Inserts language proposed by the House which provides 
$11,000,000 to the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs 
and $25,000,000 to the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency. 
This funding is for temporary rental assistance to very low-
income families displaced by the floods spawned by Hurricane 
Floyd. The conferees direct HUD to provide these funds to the 
aforementioned State agencies within two weeks of enactment of 
this Act.

                       homeless assistance grants

      Inserts language proposed by the Senate and modified by 
the House authorizing HUD to spend funds from this account to 
renew for one year those expiring Shelter PlusCare and 
Supportive Housing grants covered by the 1999 Notice of Funding 
Availability (NOFA).
      The conferees note their increasing concern about how 
priorities for this program are set. It is the understanding of 
the conferees that the McKinney program leaves the decision to 
renew expiring grants with local authorities. Thus, there is a 
fundamental mismatch between a results-oriented program that 
creates a supply of permanent housing that ends homelessness 
among chronically ill persons, and HUD's commitment to 
operating the program through local decision-making. In 
addition, the conferees are concerned about the long-term 
implications of automatically renewing all permanent housing 
commitments. By including this compromise, the conferees are 
merely resolving the immediate issue and deferring a more 
comprehensive decision to a more appropriate vehicle or to a 
later date. Any comprehensive approach should include data and 
management systems that can measure progress toward the goal of 
ending chronic homelessness.
      Inserts language proposed by the House authorizing HUD to 
make technical assistance funds available for management and 
information systems.

                     Management and Administration

                         salaries and expenses

      Inserts new language limiting HUD from spending funds to 
employ more than 9,100 full time equivalent (FTE) employees 
during fiscal year 2000. Additionally, HUD is directed to 
develop an employee resource management plan that: (1) bases 
estimates and allocations on the level of work and where it is 
to be performed; (2) includes all departmental responsibilities 
in the work definition and resource estimation system; (3) 
identifies what work can be done with current human resource 
levels, and what tasks must be done less often, not done, or 
contracted out if they are to be accomplished; and (4) includes 
a resource validation component that accurately measures what 
staff do. The Department is directed to brief the Committees on 
Appropriations every six months on the progress made in 
developing this plan until it is implemented.
      HUD's lack of an adequate staff plan begs the question of 
why HUD is apparently racing to hire more than 764 employees by 
the end of July, 2000. Though the limitation agreed to by the 
conferees does not preclude HUD from continuing down this 
course, it should be considered a warning that HUD cannot 
assume that funds to cover more than 9,100 FTEs in fiscal year 
2001 will be forthcoming.
      This assumption, in addition to being reckless, is 
further jeopardized because HUD's 2001 budget estimates about 
salary requirements are simply incorrect. The newest 
information from HUD shows that rather than needing $78,800 per 
FTE for salaries, HUD actually needs $82,000. This increase is 
due to HUD's insistence to hire community builder fellows at 
grade and salary levels that far out-strip career civil 
servants. In order to stave off employee complaints about the 
community builder program and to boost the morale of the civil 
servants, HUD recently promoted 200 career civil servants and 
provided more than 3,000 quality step increases to career civil 
servants. These increases, though likely well-deserved, were 
not built into the fiscal year 2001 budget estimate. The 
conferees believe that this decision, coupled with HUD's 
insistence on hiring 764 new staff, constitutes serious 
mismanagement and could create a crisis that may not be averted 
unless prompt responsible action is taken.
      Thus, the conferees direct HUD to reconsider hiring to 
this staff level until the Committees, along with the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB), can undertake a review of HUD's 
staffing needs and relate them to a realistic budget proposal.

                      Office of Inspector General

                    (including rescission of funds)

      Inserts technical language proposed by the Senate and 
modified by the House rescinding and re-appropriating 
$6,000,000 for the ``Office of Inspector General'' for the 
Housing Fraud Initiative.

National Service Trust instead of transferring such amount as 
proposed by the House. The conferees have included this 
rescission as part of the appropriation of additional funds for 
the Office of Inspector General.

                      Office of Inspector General

      Inserts $1,000,000 for the Office of Inspector General, 
as proposed by the House. The amount provided shall be for the 
purpose of expanding the number of audits of State Commissions 
on National and Community Service. The conferees, recognizing 
thelateness of the additional funds, have agreed to make these 
funds available until September 30, 2001.

                    Environmental Protection Agency

                 ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMS AND MANAGEMENT

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

      Inserts language as proposed by the House clarifying 
Congressional intent with respect to a specific grant made 
available in Public Law 106-74 and in prior Acts; and which 
transfers funds provided for a specific grant in Public Law 
105-276 to the ``State and tribal assistance grant'' account 
for specific water and wastewater infrastructure projects.
      New language has also been included which prohibits the 
Environmental Protection Agency from spending any funds 
available for expenditure in fiscal years 2000 and 2001 to make 
a final determination on or implement any new rule relative to 
the Proposed Revisions to the National Pollutant Discharge 
Elimination System Program and Federal Antidegradation Policy 
and the Proposed Revisions to the Water Quality Planning and 
Management Regulations Concerning Total Maximum Daily Load, 
published in the Federal Register on August 23, 1999.

                   state and tribal assistance grants

      Inserts language as proposed by the House making a 
technical correction to a specific grant identified in project 
number 102 provided in Public Law 106-74; and inserts new 
language making further technical corrections with respect to 
specific grants identified in project numbers 135 and 50 
provided in Public Law 106-74.

                  Federal Emergency Management Agency

                            disaster relief

      The conferees have agreed to provide $50,000,000, in 
addition to other amounts made available, to be derived from 
unobligated balances made available under ``Disaster Relief'' 
in Public Law 106-74, as proposed by the Senate. The House has 
proposed an additional $77,400,000 for buyout of properties 
made uninhabitable by Hurricane Floyd and surrounding events, 
under regulations promulgated in response to passage of Public 
Law 106-113. Both the House and Senate bills had designated the 
funding as emergency funding.
      The conferees have agreed to include up to $50,000,000 
within available disaster relief funds for buyouts and 
elevations of properties in the 100-year floodplain in areas 
which have had Presidential disaster declarations in fiscal 
years 1999 or 2000. FEMA is to give priority consideration to 
grant proposals for buyouts or elevations of repetitive loss 
properties. The fact the conferees have provided additional 
funds for buyouts reflects a recognition of significant demand 
for these funds in numerous states throughout the country and 
the need for actions to reduce potential losses for future 
flood events. The action of the conferees is not a positive 
reflection, however, on how FEMA has executed this program to 
date. The conferees are deeply troubled with FEMA's 
implementation of the buyout program as the agency has failed 
to meet statutory requirements to issue interim regulations by 
December 31, 1999, failed to provide States with clearly 
defined guidance to apply eligibility criteria, failed to 
develop a standard method for assessing fair market value and 
estimated costs per structure, and made an interim allocation 
based on inaccurate State submissions resulting in inequitable 
distribution of funds to the States. The conferees expect FEMA 
will address these major shortcomings, and those expected to be 
identified by the Inspector General shortly, and issue a final 
rule in a timely manner. Without stronger oversight and 
accountability for these funds than has been exhibited to date, 
additional funds will not be provided.
      The conferees are aware of a disaster declaration request 
submitted June 26, 2000 by the Governor of North Dakota for 
areas in the eastern portion of the state affected by severe, 
unexpected rainfall, and understand there likely will be a 
formal Presidential declaration made shortly. The conferees 
recognize and applaud the professional and dedicated response 
to this disaster, as well as the initial damage assessments 
already performed by State and local disaster officials and 
representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA). The conferees urge FEMA and other Federal agencies 
involved in responding to these floods to act expeditiously in 
processing claims submitted by State and local officials and 
affected residents upon the formal emergency declaration.

             National Aeronautics and Space Administration

                  science, aeronautics and technology

      The conferees have provided an additional $1,000,000 for 
the Independent Verification and Validation Facility to perform 
software IV&V; work for future Mars missions, and an additional 
$500,000 for the expansion of the Self Adaptive Vehicular 
Equipment (SAVE) project's ``Online Learning Flight Control for 
Intelligent Flight Controls Systems'' initiative at the Dryden 
Flight Research Center.

                       aircraft procurement, army

      The conferees agree to provide $30,000,000 for the 
procurement of one Airborne Reconnaissance Low (ARL) aircraft, 
as proposed by the Senate. This aircraft will replace the ARL 
aircraft lost in the tragic crash during a counter-narcotics 
mission in Colombia last year. The conferees are concerned that 
more ARL aircraft have not been available on a regular basis to 
U.S. Southern Command, and strongly urge the Department of 
Defense and the Army to provide more ARL mission aircraft for 
missions in the U.S. Southern Command area of responsibility.

         drug interdiction and counter-drug activities, defense

      The conferees agree to provide $154,059,000 in support of 
Plan Colombia. The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to 
provide to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 30 
days following enactment of this Act, a report on the proposed 
uses of all funds under this heading. This report shall 
describe steps taken to ensure the maximum force protection of 
U.S. personnel while deployed in Colombia, including their 
rules of engagement. The conferees have provided funding for 
specific activities, as described in the budget request, and 
direct the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) to notify 
the Committees on Appropriations 15 session days prior to any 
obligation or transfer of funds which is not consistent with 
the specific purposes contained in the request and delineated 
in this statement of managers.
      Additionally, the Assistant Secretary of Defense for 
Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict is directed to 
provide a monthly report to the congressional defense 
committees, which shall include the following information for 
the preceding month: Identification of private sector firms 
providing support to Plan Colombia in any capacity, the number 
of American citizens located overseas in execution of 
supporting contracts, and the number of military personnel and 
U.S. government employees operating in Colombia and the 
surrounding region in support of Plan Colombia.

                          classified programs

      The conference agreement regarding classified programs is 
summarized in a classified annex accompanying this statement of 
managers.

                    General Provisions--This Chapter

      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 3101, as 
proposed by the House and amended by the Senate, which places 
limits on the funds made available in this Act to the 
Department of Defense for the provision of support for counter-
drug activities of the Government of Colombia.

                               CHAPTER 2

                     BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  Funds Appropriated to the President

                          Department of State

               assistance for counternarcotics activities

      The conference agreement recommends $1,018,500,000 in 
emergency supplemental appropriations to reduce the supply of 
narcotics to the United States from Colombia and Southern and 
Central America and the Caribbean. The House bill recommended 
$1,099,000,000 and the Senate amendment recommended 
$934,100,000.
      The President requested that $818,000,000 be designated 
as an emergency requirement pursuant to the Balanced Budget and 
Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended. In addition, 
the President requested $256,000,000 in fiscal year 2001 to 
support Plan Colombia. These funds shall only be available to 
the extent that an official budget request that designates the 
entire amount as an emergency requirement is transmitted to the 
Congress. The conference agreement provides that these funds be 
available until expended, as requested by the Administration.
      The conference agreement provides a waiver of section 
482(b) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, regarding the 
procurement of weapons and ammunition, for funds under this 
heading. Also the conference agreement requires that funds 
under this title shall be subject to all limitations and 
restrictions contained in section 599D of section 1000(a)(2) of 
Public Law 106-113, regarding funds for population planning.
      The conference agreement directs the Secretary of State, 
in consultation with the Secretary of Defense and the 
Administrator of the Agency for International Development, to 
provide to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and to 
the Committees on Appropriations not later than 30 days after 
enactment of this Act, a report on the proposed uses of all 
funds under this heading on a country-by-country basis for each 
proposed program, project or activity. The conferees direct the 
Administration's report to reflect the priorities as provided 
in the following funding columns. The conferees note that the 
report by the Secretary of State must be received prior to the 
initial obligation of any of these emergency supplemental 
funds. The conferees expect this report to serve as the basis 
for any future reprogramming of funds by the Executive Branch. 
Further, at least 20 days prior to the obligation of funds 
under this title, the Secretary of State shall inform the 
Committees on Appropriations.

                      assistance for plan colombia

      The assistance for Plan Colombia is designed to support 
the five objectives of the Colombian government's effort to 
gain control of the drug producing regions in southern 
Colombia; to increase drug interdiction efforts; to provide 
additional assistance to the Colombian National Police; to 
increase alternative economic development programs, and to 
strengthen human rights and justice and anti-crime programs.

              support for the push into southern colombia

      The conference agreement recommends $390,500,000 to 
support the Government of Colombia's objective to gain control 
of the drug producing regions of southern Colombia. These funds 
will support certain aspects of training and equipping the 
second and third Colombian Army counternarcotics battalions. 
Central to this entire effort is providing reliable airlift for 
these counternarcotics battalions. The conference agreement 
directs that funds will be utilized to: procure and support 16 
UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters; procure, refurbish, and support 
30 UH-1H Huey II helicopters; and support 15 UH-1N helicopters 
for use by the Colombian Army. The conference agreement directs 
that UH-60 Black Hawk procurement be managed by the U.S. 
Defense Security Cooperation Agency. The conference agreement 
includes language, as contained in the House bill, requiring 
that if any helicopter procured with funds under this heading 
is used to aid or abet the operations of an illegal self-
defense group or security cooperative, then such helicopter 
shall be immediately returned to the United States. The 
conferees recognize that significant resources under this title 
are dedicated to procurement and sustainment of various 
aircraft for use by the Colombia government and, therefore, 
support funds for defensive systems to provide protection for 
these aircraft. As requested by the Administration, the 
conference agreement recommends $9,000,000 to procure Schweizer 
SA 2-37A organize intelligence aircraft with forward looking 
infrared (FLIR) to support the counternarcotics battalions' 
counter-drug surveillance. The conference agreement directs 
funds for the following programs:

                    support for interdiction efforts

      The conference agreement recommends $129,400,000 to 
enhance United States and Colombian narcotics interdiction 
efforts. The majority of these funds are dedicated to upgrading 
the radar systems in four U.S. Customs Service P-3 airborne 
early warning interdiction aircraft. The U.S. Customs Service 
aircraft are dedicated to missions to detect and monitor 
suspect targets destined for the United States from cocaine 
source zones, primarily Colombia. Additionally, the Committee 
directs funds U.S. and Colombian air, land, and sea 
interdiction programs as follows:

               support for the colombian national police

      The conference agreement recommends $115,600,000 to 
support the Colombian National Police (CNP). The conferees note 
that the CNP has for years been at the forefront of the 
Colombian government's counter-narcotics efforts and has 
received significant United States support in recent years. The 
conference agreement recommends three significant programs to 
enhance the CNP's eradication efforts. These include: 
$26,000,000 for procurement, training and support for two UH-60 
Black Hawk helicopters; $20,600,000 for twelve UH-1H Huey II 
helicopters; and $20,000,000 for the purchase of Ayers S2R T-65 
agricultural spray aircraft and OV-10 aircraft. The conference 
agreement recommends additional funds be provided for 
communications, ammunition, spare parts, training and 
logistical support. The conference agreement directs funds for 
the following programs:

      support for alternative and economic development in colombia

      The conference agreement recommends $81,000,000 to 
support alternative and economic development programs in 
Colombia. These funds are in addition to funds provided for 
alternative development associated with the Colombian 
government's objective to ``Push into Southern Colombia''. The 
conferees recommend funding levels for these programs at levels 
below the House and Senate bills since these supplemental funds 
are not expected to reach Colombia until the last quarter of 
fiscal year 2000. The conferees believe that additional funding 
for these programs can be made available during the regular 
fiscal year 2001 appropriations process. The conference 
agreement recommends $4,000,000 for operating expenses for the 
Agency for International Development to effectively manage this 
program. The conferees direct funds for the following programs:

        Support for Human Rights and Judicial Reform in Colombia

      The conference agreement recommends $122,000,000 for a 
broad range of human rights, judicial reform, and other 
programs designed to support the peace process and to 
strengthen democracy and rule of law in Colombia. The conferees 
strongly support funding for these programs and recognize that 
protecting human rights and rule of law are central to the 
overall goals of Plan Colombia. The conferees note that the 
recommended level for these important programs is $29,000,000 
more than requested by the Administration. The conference 
agreement includes $2,500,000 to support the rehabilitation of 
child soldiers instead of $5,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. 
The House bill did not address this matters. The conference 
agreement directs funds for the following programs:

                          Regional Assistance

      The conferees recognize the unique narcotics crisis 
affecting Colombia and the United States and has, therefore, 
responded to the President's request that the overwhelming 
majority of these emergency funds be provided in direct support 
of Plan Colombia. However, this effort requires a greater 
regional emphasis so that the problems associated with the 
cultivation, processing and trafficking of illegal narcotics 
are not simply relocated elsewhere in the region. Therefore, 
the conference agreement recommends $180,000,000 for assistance 
for other countries in the region. Of these funds, the 
conferees recommend that up to $32,000,000 be made available to 
procure American-made KMAX helicopters and to provide initial 
training, logistics, and technical support for four years. The 
conference agreement recommends not less than $18,000,000 for 
interdiction programs in other countries in South and Central 
America and the Caribbean. The conferees are aware of the 
significant interdiction requirements in Panama, Costa Rica, 
Brazil, The Bahamas, and Venezuela. The conferees direct that 
the Secretary of State, when reporting to the Committees on 
Appropriations as required by this Act, provide recommendations 
and justifications for the use of these funds on a country-by-
country basis.
      The conference agreement provides that not less than 
$110,000,000 be made available for assistance for Bolivia, 
including $85,000,000 which may be made available for 
alternative development and other economic activities. The 
conferees strongly support the efforts of the Bolivian 
government, through its ``Dignity Plan'', to terminate coca 
production in Bolivia.
      The conference agreement recommends that not less than 
$20,000,000 may be made available for assistance for Ecuador, 
including $8,000,000 which may be made available for 
alternative development and other economic activities.
      The conference agreement includes bill language regarding 
conditions on assistance for Colombia which is similar to 
language contained in the House bill and the Senate bill. This 
bill language requires the Secretary of State to certify that a 
number of conditions have been met by the Government of 
Colombia prior to the initial obligation of funds under this 
heading.
      The conference agreement includes language regarding 
limitations on the use of appropriated funds in support of Plan 
Colombia and the assignment of United States military personnel 
in Colombia which is similar to language contained in the 
Senate bill. The House bill contained a similar provision. The 
conferees note that this provision places a limitation on the 
assignment of any United States military personnel in Colombia 
in connection with support of Plan Colombia and does not apply 
to other United States military personnel in Colombia not 
directly supporting of Plan Colombia.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language 
requiring certain reporting requirements regarding conditions 
on assistance to Colombia as proposed by the Senate. However, 
the conferees expect that beginning 60 days after the date of 
enactment of this Act, and every 180 days thereafter for the 
duration of the provision of resources administered under this 
Act, the Secretary of State shall submit a report to the 
Appropriations Committees and other congressional committees as 
appropriate which contains:
      A description of the extent to which the Colombian Armed 
Forces have suspended from duty Colombian Armed Forces 
personnel who are credibly alleged to have committed gross 
violations of human rights, and the extent to which such 
personnel have been brought to justice in Colombia's civilian 
courts, including a description of the charges brought and the 
disposition of such cases.
      An assessment of efforts made by the Colombian Armed 
Forces, National Police, and Attorney General to disband 
paramilitary groups, including the names of Colombian Armed 
Forces personnel brought to justice for aiding or abetting 
paramilitary groups and the names of paramilitary leaders and 
members who were indicted, arrested and prosecuted.
      A description of the extent to which the Colombian Armed 
Forces cooperate with civilian authorities in investigating and 
prosecuting gross violations of human rights allegedly 
committed by its personnel, including the number of such 
personnel being investigated for gross violations of human 
rights who are suspended from duty.
      A description of the extent to which attacks against 
human rights defenders, government prosecutors and 
investigators, and officials of the civilian judicial system in 
Colombia, are being investigated and the alleged perpetrators 
brought to justice.
      An estimate of the number of Colombian civilians 
displaced as a result of the ``push into southern Colombia'', 
and actions taken to address the social and economic needs of 
these people.
      A description of actions taken by the United States and 
the Government of Colombia to promote and support a negotiated 
settlement of the conflict in Colombia.
      The conference agreement includes bill language, 
identical to the House bill, regarding the denial of visas for 
persons credibly alleged to have aided or abetted Colombian 
insurgent and paramilitary groups. Further, the conference 
agreement includes bill language, as proposed by the Senate, 
requiring a report by the President on the current United 
States policy and strategy regarding United States 
counternarcotics assistance for Colombia and neighboring 
countries.
      The conferees direct that not later than 60 days after 
the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State, in 
consultation with the heads of other relevant United States 
federal agencies, report to the Committees on Appropriations 
regarding the effects on human health and the safety of 
herbicides utilized under this title. The House bill did not 
address this matter.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language 
regarding certain counternarcotics measures, as proposed by the 
Senate. The conferees believe that the Government of Colombia 
should commit itself immediately to the urgent development and 
application of naturally occurring and ecologically sound 
methods for eradicating illicit crops, which could reduce 
significantly the loss of life in Colombia and the United 
States.
      Further, the conferees believe that the effectiveness of 
United States counternarcotics assistance to Colombia depends 
on law enforcement officials in Colombia having full access to 
all areas of Colombian national territory. Also, the conferees 
believe that the governments of the countries receiving 
assistance under this title should take steps to bring to 
justice narcotics traffickers and, if requested, extradite 
these traffickers to the United States.
      The conference agreement includes bill language, as 
proposed by the Senate, requiring a detailed report by the 
Secretary of State regarding the extradition of narcotics 
traffickers to the United States. The House bill did not 
address this matter.
      The conference agreement includes bill language, as 
proposed by the Senate, requiring the Secretary of State to 
make a certification regarding the United States Government's 
public support for the military and political efforts of the 
Government of Colombia. The House bill did not address this 
matter.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language, 
as proposed by the Senate amendment, regarding United States 
citizens held hostage in Colombia. The House bill did not 
address this matter. The conferees are deeply concerned that 
three American citizens, David Mankins, Mark Rich, and Rick 
Tenenoff, have been held hostage by Revolutionary Armed Forces 
of Colombia (FARC) guerrillas since January 31, 1993. These men 
were engaged in humanitarian and religious work when they were 
taken hostage. The conferees condemn these kidnappings and urge 
the Administration and the United Nations to work to gain the 
prompt release of these Americans.

                  Military Construction, Defense-wide

      The conferees recommend $116,523,000 for Military 
Construction, Defense-wide, as proposed by the House and 
Senate. These amounts are provided as a contingent emergency 
appropriation for the construction of three Forward Operating 
Locations to support the Colombia Anti-Drug Program, as

              TITLE IV--LEWIS AND CLARK RURAL WATER SYSTEM

      Lewis and Clark Rural Water System Project.--The 
conference agreement includes language authorizing the Lewis 
and Clark Rural Water System project in South Dakota. Both the 
House and Senate versions of the Lewis and Clark Rural Water 
System legislation contained provisions to make Pick-Sloan 
power that had been reserved for future irrigation and drainage 
pumping for the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program available at 
the firm power rate during the irrigation season, May 1 through 
October 31 each year, so long as the system is operated on a 
not-for-profit basis. Pick-Sloan capacity and energy will be 
provided by the Western Area Power Administration to the rural 
water system at the firm power rate schedule of the Pick-Sloan 
Eastern Division of the Western Area Power Administration in 
effect when the power is delivered by Western to the qualified 
preference power supplier, which will be responsible for 
delivery of Pick-Sloan power. The conferees understand that the 
qualified preference entity is entitled to include in its 
charges to the rural water system its other usual and customary 
charges. Additional power supply for the water supply project 
shall be provided in accordance with state law.

               TITLE V--GENERAL PROVISIONS THIS DIVISION

      Section 5102. The conference agreement includes a 
provision that repeals certain pay date shifts that were 
included in the Fiscal Year 2000 Consolidated Appropriations 
Act. That Act provided that when military members were to be 
paid on September 30, 2000, or when civilian employees were to 
be paid on September 29, 2000, or on September 30, 2000, these 
groups were to be paid on October 1, 2000.

                           CERRO GRANDE FIRE

               TITLE I--CERRO GRANDE FIRE ASSISTANCE ACT

             COMPENSATION FOR VICTIMS OF CERRO GRANDE FIRE

                  Federal Emergency Management Agency

          cerro grande fire assistance fund and claims office

      The conferees have agreed to provide an appropriation of 
$500,000,000 for the Federal Emergency Management Agency to 
carry out the provisions of the Cerro Grande Fire Assistance 
Act.
      The Cerro Grande Fire Assistance Act (``the Act'') 
provides a comprehensive and expeditious process for the 
settlement of claims resulting from the Cerro Grande Fire, 
which was caused by the prescribed burn initiated by the 
National Park Service on Federal land at Bandelier National 
Monument in New Mexico. The claims process will be administered 
through a new Office of Cerro Grande Fire Claims at the Federal 
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
      On May 4, 2000, the National Park Service initiated a 
prescribed burn on Federal land at Bandelier National Monument 
in New Mexico during the peak of the southwest fire season. One 
day later, the prescribed burn exceeded the containment 
capabilities of the National Park Service, was reclassified as 
a wildland burn, and quickly spread to other Federal and non-
Federal lands. By May 7, 2000, the fire had grown in size, 
spreading to residential areas and causing the evacuation of 
several communities in northern New Mexico, including Los 
Alamos.
      The Cerro Grande Fire was the largest forest fire in the 
state of New Mexico's history. The fire damaged or destroyed 
more than 48,000 acres of forest, 37 million trees, 439 homes, 
caused injuries, property damages and personal injuries to more 
than 1,000 families, countless businesses, the County of Los 
Alamos, the State of New Mexico, two Indian tribes and several 
other Federal and non-Federal entities. The Secretary of 
Interior and the National Park Service have assumed 
responsibility for the fire and the subsequent injuries which 
resulted from it.
      The Act provides full compensation for injuries resulting 
from the Cerro Grande Fire. The term ``injury'' is given the 
same meaning as in the Federal Tort Claims Act. However, the 
Act contains an instructive list of allowable damages for 
injuries which constitute losses of property, business losses 
or financial losses. The conferees intend that FEMA compensate 
fully all injured parties for these enumerated damages if the 
damages resulted from the Cerro Grande Fire. The Act also gives 
FEMA the discretion to compensate fully injured parties for any 
other damages resulting from the fire which FEMA deems 
appropriate.
      Those eligible for compensation through the claims 
process include all entities which suffered injuries resulting 
from the fire, including individuals, Indian tribes, 
corporations, tribal corporations, partnerships, companies, 
school districts, other state and local governmental entities 
and insurance companies. The conferees are aware that certain 
members of the Los Alamos community injured by the fire are 
non-citizens lawfully present in the United States who are 
otherwise ineligible for certain assistance from FEMA and other 
governmental agencies. The Act intends that these individuals 
be compensated for their losses in the same manner as any other 
injured party.
      The Act requires that FEMA also compensate insurance 
companies as subrogees for claims paid to insureds for damages 
resulting from the fire. However, the Act makes clear that, to 
the maximum extent practicable, insurance companies should 
receive payment for their claims only after those claims 
submitted by other injured parties are satisfied.
      The Act requires FEMA within 45 days of enactment of the 
Act to promulgate interim final regulations for the processing 
and payment of claims. Injured parties must file their claims 
within 2 years from the date on which such regulations are 
promulgated. FEMA must determine and fix the amount of payment 
of each claim within 180 days of its filing.
      The conferees are concerned that injured parties only be 
compensated once for injuries resulting from the fire. To 
prevent double recoveries and to maintain an orderly claims 
process, the Act requires that injured parties elect to pursue 
damages for their injuries either by submitting a claim to the 
Cerro Grande Fire Claims Office or by filing a claim in the 
courts under the Federal Tort Claims Act or any other provision 
of law. If a party elects to file a claim with the Cerro Grande 
Fire Claims Office, the party may not subsequently file a claim 
in court for the same damages. Conversely, parties who choose 
to pursue damages in a court of law may not file a claim under 
this Act.
      The conferees recognize that disputes may arise over 
claims submitted under this Act. The Act preserves the rights 
of individuals to request judicial review of their final claims 
awards in the Federal District Court for the District of New 
Mexico. The Act also allows aggrieved claimants in lieu of 
Federal court to elect binding arbitration of their claims 
award by a neutral third party under a process to be determined 
by FEMA.
      The conferees note that the responsibility given to FEMA 
under this Act is outside the scope of the work FEMA normally 
performs in managing disasters. The conferees have confidence 
that FEMA and its Director will manage the claims process in 
accordance with the intent of this Act, and that this new, 
temporary responsibility will not diminish FEMA's ability to 
manage other current and future disasters under the Stafford 
Act. The conferees also intend that no funds to administer this 
Act or pay claims will be derived from the Disaster Relief 
Fund.

                 TITLE II--CERRO GRANDE FIRE EMERGENCY

                      SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS

                       DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

                          Farm Service Agency

                     emergency conservation program

      The conference agreement provides an additional 
$10,000,000 for the emergency conservation program (ECP), to 
remain available until expended. The conferees include language 
that allows ECP funds to be used to rehabilitate farmland 
damaged from fires that resulted from prescribed burning 
conducted by the Federal government, and exempts these funds 
from certain cost-share requirements.

                 Natural Resources Conservation Service

               watershed and flood prevention operations

      The conference agreement recommends an additional 
$4,000,000, to remain available until expended, to repair 
damages as a result of the Los Alamos, New Mexico fires.

                          DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

                    Atomic Energy Defense Activities

                      cerro grande fire activities

      The conference agreement appropriates $138,000,000 for 
the Department of Energy for damage sustained by the Los Alamos 
National Laboratory in the Cerro Grande fire. The entire 
amounts has been designated by the Congress as an emergency 
requirement pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced 
Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended.
      The conference agreement provides $53,340,000 for 
physical damage, destruction repair and risk mitigation; 
$27,260,000 for restoring services; $39,400,000 for emergency 
response; and $18,000,000 for resuming laboratory operations.
      The Department is directed to provide a monthly report 
showing the estimated costs for each activity, the actual costs 
incurred, and a brief description of the activities performed. 
The Department should work with the House and Senate Committees 
on Appropriations on the format for this report.

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

                        Bureau of Indian Affairs

                      operation of indian programs

      The conference agreement provides $8,982,000 in emergency 
funding for operation of Indian programs for the Pueblo of 
Santa Clara and the Pueblo of San Ildefonso for restoration, 
rehabilitation and reforestation of tribal lands and facilities 
damaged by the Cerro Grande fire in New Mexico. The entire 
amount is contingent on receipt of a budget request that 
includes a Presidential designation of the entire amount as an 
emergency requirement pursuant to the Balanced Budget and 
Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended.

                     General Provision--This Title

      Section 2101 allows members of the Pueblo of San 
Ildefonso and the Pueblo of Santa Clara to collect plants and 
minerals in the Bandelier National Monument. The extensive 
areas burned by the Cerro Grande fire have severely reduced the 
availability of local plants, clays and soils traditionally 
used by these Pueblos. To allow their traditional ceremonies to 
continue uninterrupted, it is necessary to allow enrolled 
members of both Pueblos access to plant and mineral resources 
that are available in the Bandelier National Monument at 
quantities greater than allowed by current regulations of the 
National Park Service. These activities would be consistent 
with applicable laws governing the Monument.

                For the consideration of the House bill and 
                Division A of the Senate amendment and 
                modifications committed to conference:
