       JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CONFERENCE

      The managers on the part of the House and the Senate at 
the conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on 
the amendments of the Senate to the bill (H.R. 4516) making 
appropriations for the Legislative Branch for the fiscal year 
ending September 30, 2001, and for other purposes, submit the 
following joint statement to the House and Senate in 
explanation of the effect of the action agreed upon by the 
managers and recommended in the accompanying conference report.
      The Senate amended the House bill with four numbered 
amendments. The conference agreement addresses all the 
differences contained in the four amendments in the disposition 
of the first numbered amendment. The first numbered amendment 
therefore includes a complete version of the Legislative Branch 
bill plus all other legislation included in this conference 
report. An explanation of the resolution of the differences of 
the other three numbered amendments is included in the first 
numbered amendment. The disposition of the other three numbered 
amendments therefore is purely technical in nature to enable 
the complete bill text to be included in the first amendment.
      In addition to the Legislative Branch Appropriations Act, 
2001, the conference agreement also enacts the Treasury and 
General Government Appropriations Act, 2001, by reference, and 
provisions dealing with the repeal of certain telephone taxes. 
These additional pieces of legislation are included within 
amendment number 1 as Division B. The Legislative Branch 
Appropriations Act, 2001, is designated as Division A within 
amendment number 1. An explanation of the matter in Division B 
is included in this statement under amendment number 1 after 
the explanation of the matter in Division A.
      Amendment No. 1: Deletes the matter inserted and inserts 
complete bill text.

                               DIVISION A

                   legislative branch appropriations

      Many items in both House and Senate Legislative Branch 
Appropriations bills are identical and are included in the 
conference agreement without change. The conferees have 
endorsed statements or policy contained in the House and Senate 
reports accompanying the appropriations bills, unless amended 
or restated herein. The conferees have agreed to drop without 
prejudice the direction in the House report under the heading, 
Information Security, subsumed under ``LEGISLATIVE BRANCH WIDE 
MATTERS''. With respect to those items in the conference 
agreement that differ between House and Senate bills, the 
conferees have agreed to the following with the appropriate 
section numbers, punctuation, and other technical corrections:

                   TITLE I--CONGRESSIONAL OPERATIONS

                                 Senate

      Appropriates $506,797,300 for Senate operations, and 
includes, at the request of the managers on the part of the 
Senate, an amendment adding $250,000, an amendment containing 
the traditional death gratuity upon the death of a Senator, and 
an amendment to Section 8. Inasmuch as this item relates solely 
to the Senate, and in accord with long practice under which 
each body determines its own housekeeping requirements and the 
other concurs without intervention, the managers on the part of 
the House, at the request of the managers on the part of the 
Senate, have receded to the Senate.

                        House of Representatives

      At the request of the managers on the part of the House, 
an enrollment error in the House bill has been corrected and an 
administrative provision has been added to provide funds for a 
special education need. Inasmuch as this item relates solely to 
the House, and in accord with long practice under which each 
body determines its own housekeeping requirements and the other 
concurs without intervention, the managers on the part of the 
Senate, at the request of the managers on the part of the House, have 
receded to the House.

                              Joint Items

            Joint Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies of 2001

                         salaries and expenses

      Appropriates $1,000,000 for the Joint Committee on 
Inaugural Ceremonies of 2001 as proposed by the Senate, 
amending two dates.

                        Administrative Provision

      The conferees have amended the administrative provision 
proposed by the House regarding assistance for the Capitol 
Police during the Inauguration in January 2001 and the 2001 
joint session of Congress to receive the State of the Union 
message.

                        Joint Economic Committee

      Appropriates $3,315,000 for the Joint Economic Committee 
as proposed by the Senate instead of $3,072,000 as proposed by 
the House.

                      Joint Committee on Taxation

      Appropriates $6,430,000 for the Joint Committee on 
Taxation instead of $6,174,000 as proposed by the House and 
$6,686,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conferees believe 
that this level of funding is sufficient for the Joint 
Committee on Taxation to complete its report on the overall 
state of the Federal tax system.

                          CAPITOL POLICE BOARD

                             Capitol Police

                                salaries

      Appropriates $97,142,000 for salaries of officers, 
members, and employees of the Capitol Police instead of 
$92,769,000 as proposed by the House and $102,700,000 as 
proposed by the Senate, of which $47,053,000 is provided to the 
Sergeant at Arms of the House of Representatives and 
$50,089,000 is provided to the Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper 
of the Senate. Of the amount provided, $4,660,000 is for 
overtime.
      The conferees have agreed this will fund 1,481 FTE's, the 
level proposed by the Senate. The Chief of Police is directed 
to secure the approval of the House and Senate Appropriations 
Committees before filling positions above the level of 1,402 
FTE's. The conferees intend that sufficient resources be 
allocated to implement the ``two officers per door'' policy. 
The Police are directed to study the posting requirements of 
all posts and report to the House and Senate Appropriations 
Committees. Until such a study is presented, the police are 
authorized an FTE level of 1402.

                            general expenses

      Appropriates $6,772,000 for general expenses of the 
Capitol Police instead of $6,549,000 as proposed by the House 
and $6,884,000 as proposed by the Senate. The funds provide 
$103,000 for motorcycle replacement, and the conferees direct 
that the Capitol Police continue the program begun in FY 2000 
to utilize American-made motorcycles, targeting the funds made 
available in this agreement towards smaller motorcycles. In 
addition, the conferees have not included reimbursement for 
telecommunications costs ($235,000) and direct that these 
savings be applied to other programs. Items for installation 
and maintenance of physical security and information security 
measures shall not be less than the FY 2000 funded level.

                       Administrative Provisions

      The conferees have included two administrative provisions 
proposed by the House relating to certifying officers and a 
chief administrative officer. The conferees have also added a 
provision adjusting the salary of the chief of the Capitol 
police.

           Capitol Guide Service and Special Services Office

      Appropriates $2,371,000 for the Capitol Guide Service and 
Special Services Office as proposed by the Senate instead of 
$2,201,000 as proposed by the House.

                      Statements of Appropriations

      Appropriates $30,000 for statements of appropriations as 
proposed by the Senate instead of $29,000 as proposed by the 
House and makes technical changes.

                          OFFICE OF COMPLIANCE

      Appropriates $1,820,000 for the Office of Compliance 
instead of $1,816,000 as proposed by the House and $2,066,000 
as proposed by the Senate. The conferees note that Office of 
Compliance telephones frequently are not answered during normal 
business hours. As an agency providing service to employees and 
agencies of the Legislative branch, the Executive Director 
should ensure that calls to the Office of Compliance are 
answered during normal business hours. In addition, the 
conferees believe the Executive Director should examine the use 
of contract couriers to make deliveries to Congressional 
offices and should reduce costs for such deliveries by use of 
other means when appropriate.

                      CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE

                         Salaries and Expenses

      Establishes the limitation on funds for representation 
and reception expenses at $3,000 as proposed by the House 
instead of $2,500 as proposed by the Senate and appropriates 
$28,493,000 for salaries and expenses of the Congressional 
Budget Office instead of $27,403,000 as proposed by the House 
and $27,113,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      The conferees have included an administrative provision, 
as proposed by the Senate, authorizing the Congressional Budget 
Office to enter into multiple year contracts to the same extent 
as executive agencies.

                        ARCHITECT OF THE CAPITOL

                     Capitol Buildings and Grounds

                           capitol buildings

                         salaries and expenses

      Appropriates $43,689,000 for salaries and expenses, 
Capitol buildings, Architect of the Capitol, instead of 
$44,234,000 as proposed by the House and $44,191,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. Of this amount, $3,843,000 shall remain 
available until expended instead of $4,280,000 as proposed by 
the House and $4,255,000 as proposed by the Senate. With 
respect to object class and project differences between the 
House and Senate bills, the conferees have agreed to the 
following:

      The conference agreement includes a provision authorizing 
the Architect of the Capitol to hire a project manager for the 
construction of the Capitol Visitors Center and establishing a 
ceiling on the level of pay for this position. The conferees 
direct the Architect to fill this position from among persons 
recruited from outside the agency. The language authorizing the 
position and funding for same will require inclusion in annual 
appropriations bills and will be withdrawn upon completion of 
the project.
      The conferees have agreed to modify the Senate report 
language directing the Architect to create and fill a position 
for employee advocate. The conferees direct that the Architect 
fill the position of Employee Advocate on a one-year, temporary 
basis, using existing resources, at a level appropriate to the 
task. In the submission of the FY 2002 budget request, the 
Architect is directed to report on measures taken to fulfill 
directives in the Senate report in lieu of the quarterly 
reports outlined in the Senate report regarding this position. 
The House and Senate Committees on Appropriations will review 
the results of this temporary measure before considering a 
permanent solution.
      The conferees are aware that the Architect of the Capitol 
employs a significant number of temporary workers (excluding 
intermittent workers) who do not receive the usual benefits 
available to permanent federal workers. The Architect is 
directed to provide a report within 90 days to the Senate 
Committees on Appropriations and Rules and Administration, and 
to the House Committees on Appropriations, Transportation and 
Infrastructure, and House Administration, both majority and 
minority, detailing its use of temporary workers, the terms and 
conditions thereof, and the reasons therefor; the total number 
of such workers employed during each of the last five fiscal 
years; and a list and explanation of the benefits, if any, such 
workers receive by reason of their AOC employment. The report 
shall make recommendations for how to provide such workers 
access to federal benefits and a list of any alternatives that 
may exist to the use of temporary workers.
      The conferees are concerned about a class-action suit 
against the Architect (Harris et al. v. Architect of the 
Capitol). The Architect is urged to make every effort to settle 
this lawsuitas expeditiously as possible, and to report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 45 days on the 
status of the case.

Senate, and in accord with long practice under which each body

Congressional Research Service, Library of Congress instead of 
$73,810,000 as proposed by the House and $73,374,000 as

research and maximum practicable administrative independence of 
the Congressional Research Service, it is the conferees' intent 
that the Director of the Congressional Research Service shall 
be obligated to bring to the attention of the appropriate House 
and Senate Committees issues which directly impact the 
Congressional Research Service and its ability to serve the 
needs of Congress. The budgetary needs of CRS that may not be 
adequately addressed in the annual budget submission should be 
raised with the Appropriations Committees.

$73,297,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement 
includes a heading and provision for transfer of balances for 
preceding fiscal years to the Government Printing Office 
revolving fund as proposed by the House and language proposed 
by the Senate to provide for printing and binding for the 
Architect of the Capitol and for preparing the semimonthly and 
session indexes for the Congressional Record.
      Rather than limiting funding for the Congressional Record 
Index and indexers to close out activities, as directed in the 
House report, the conferees agree that this activity should 
continue and that improvements in work processes should be 
pursued by taking advantage of the latest available technology. 
These activities and initiatives should be more closely 
integrated and coordinated with related GPO functions and 
should be pursued under the direction of the Public Printer or 
appropriate officials designated by the Public Printer.

                        Administrative Provision

      The conference agreement amends an administrative 
provision proposed by the House regarding a study of 
Congressional printing needs and authorization of 
appropriations beginning in fiscal year 2003 to limit its 
application to the Clerk of the House and the printing needs of 
the House of Representatives.

                           LEGISLATIVE BRANCH

                          Capitol Police Board

                         security enhancements

      The conference agreement provides an additional 
$2,102,000 for Fiscal Year 2000 to the Capitol Police Board for 
security enhancements. Of this amount, $228,000 are for 
acquisition and installation of card readers for four 
additional Capitol buildings access points not currently funded 
in the security enhancements plan. In addition, $1,874,000 is 
provided for work at the Library of Congress to complete the 
closed circuit television ($1,390,000) and access control 
($484,000) improvement tasks. These funds are designated as an

              DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

                     FEDERAL HOUSING ADMINISTRATION

             FHA--General and Special Risk Program Account

      At the request of the House and Senate subcommittees on 
VA, HUD and Independent Agencies Appropriations, the conferees 
have agreed to include a provision for the Department of 
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that provides, on an 
emergency basis, $40,000,000 in credit subsidy for the FHA 
General and Special Risk Program Account. Without these 
additional funds, the Title I home improvement program, the 
condominium loan program, the FHA reverse mortgage program for 
senior citizens, and various multifamily housing insurance 
programs would have to be suspended. The additional 
appropriation would have been unnecessary if HUD had adhered to 
assumptions made by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
in determining credit subsidy rates when the President's budget 
was submitted to Congress, a violation of budget conventions. 
In the future, HUD should refrain from similar actions.

                      JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

      Following is explanatory language on H.R. 4985, as 
introduced on July 26, 2000.
      The conferees on H.R. 4516 agree with the matter inserted 
in this division of this conference agreement and the following 
description of this matter.
      H.R. 4871, the House passed Treasury, Postal Service, and 
General Government Appropriations Bill, 2001, and S. 2900, the 
Senate reported Treasury and General Government Appropriation 
Bill, 2001, were the basis for development of the introduced 
bill. The following statement is an explanation of the action 
agreed upon in resolving the differences of those two bills and 
recommended in the accompanying conference report.
      The conference agreement on the Treasury and General 
Government Appropriations Act, 2001, incorporates some of the 
language and allocations set forth in House Report 106-756 and 
in the Senate Report to accompany S. 2900. The language in 
these reports should be complied with unless specifically 
addressed in the accompanying statement of managers. Throughout 
the accompanying explanatory statement, the managers refer to 
the Committee and the Committees on Appropriations. Unless 
otherwise noted, in both instances, the managers are referring 
to the House Subcommittee on Treasury, Postal Service, and 
General Government and the Senate Subcommittee on Treasury and 
General Government.

             REPROGRAMMING AND TRANSFER OF FUNDS GUIDELINES

      The conference agreement includes the following 
reprogramming guidelines which shall be complied with by all 
agencies funded by the Treasury and General Government 
Appropriations Act, 2001:
      1. Except under extraordinary and emergency situations, 
the Committees on Appropriations will not consider requests for 
a reprogramming or a transfer of funds, or use of unobligated 
balances, which are submitted after the close of the third 
quarter of the fiscal year, June 30;
      2. Clearly stated and detailed documentation presenting 
justification for the reprogramming, transfer, or use of 
unobligated balances shall accompany each request;
      3. For agencies, departments, or offices receiving 
appropriations in excess of $20,000,000, a reprogramming shall 
be submitted if the amount to be shifted to or from any object 
class, budget activity, program line item, or program activity 
involved is in excess of $500,000 or 10 percent, whichever is 
greater, of the object class, budget activity, program line 
item, or program activity;
      4. For agencies, departments, or offices receiving 
appropriations less than $20,000,000, a reprogramming shall be 
submitted if the amount to be shifted to or from any object 
class, budget activity, program line item, or program activity 
involved is in excess of $50,000, or 10 percent, whichever is 
greater, of the object class, budget activity, program line 
item, or program activity;
      5. For any action where the cumulative effect of below 
threshold reprogramming actions, or past reprogramming and/or 
transfer actions added to the request, would exceed the dollar 
threshold mentioned above, a reprogramming shall be submitted;
      6. For any action which would result in a major change to 
the program or item which is different than that presented to 
and approved by either of the Committees, or the Congress, a 
reprogramming shall be submitted;
      7. For any action where funds earmarked by either of the 
Committees for a specific activity are proposed to be used for 
a different activity, a reprogramming shall be submitted; and,
      8. For any action where funds earmarked by either of the 
Committees for a specific activity are in excess of the project 
or activity requirement, and are proposed to be used for a 
different activity, a reprogramming shall be submitted.
      Additionally, each request shall include a declaration 
that, as of the date of the request, none of the funds included 
in the request have been obligated, and none will be obligated, 
until the Committees on Appropriations have approved the 
request.

                  TITLE I--DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

                          Departmental Offices

                         salaries and expenses

      The conferees agree to provide $156,315,000 instead of 
$149,437,000 as proposed by the House and $149,610,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. Included in this amount is $7,332,000 
to maintain current levels; $3,813,000 as a transfer from the 
Department-Wide Systems and Capital Investments Programs 
(SCIP); $3,027,000 to annualize the costs of the fiscal year 
2000 drug supplemental for the Office of Foreign Asset Control 
(OFAC); $854,000 to annualize the costs of filling 6 positions 
with the Office of International Affairs during fiscal year 
2000; $2,899,000 for OFAC program initiatives; $504,000 and no 
more than 3 positions for increased management and coordination

Public Safety of Westchester County of the State of New York.

                RECEPTION AND REPRESENTATION ALLOWANCES

      The conferees are concerned to learn that, over the past 
several years, the Office of the Under Secretary of Enforcement 
has required the various Treasury law enforcement bureaus to 
transfer a portion of their reception and representation funds 
to the Office of the Under Secretary. Although there may be 
certain functions appropriate to the involvement of all the 
Treasury law enforcement bureaus, the conferees remind the 
Under Secretary that expenses for these events are accommodated 
within the amounts authorized for Departmental Offices 
reception and representation allowances. In the event that the 
Under Secretary believes that Departmental Offices 
representation allowances are insufficient to meet current 
needs, the Under Secretary should submit a justification for 
increases to this allowance to the Committees for its 
consideration. The conferees also direct the Under Secretary to 
submit for advance approval any requirement to use reception 
and representation allowance funds from any appropriation 
account other than Departmental Offices, Salaries and Expenses.

                           ALTERNATIVE FUELS

      The conferees urge the Treasury Department to use 
ethanol, biodiesel, and other alternative fuels to the maximum 
extent practicable in meeting the Department's fuel needs.

      The conferees agree to provide $47,287,000 instead of

$2,000,000 for Critical Infrastructure Protection; and 
$3,500,000 for Public Key Infrastructure.

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

proposed by the Senate. The conferees fully fund the 
President's request. In addition, the conferees include 
$4,000,000 to partially fund a budget shortfall. The conferees

      The conferees agree to provide $13,000,000 for grants to 
local law enforcement organizations as proposed by the Senate.

                     United States Customs Service

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conferees agree to provide $1,863,765,000 instead of 
$1,822,365,000 as proposed by the House and $1,804,687,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. Included in this amount is $13,700,000 
for the second year of funding of the fiscal year 2000

enhancementsalong the northern border; $11,000,000 for vehicle

              Targeted Resources for the Southwest Border

      The conferees provide $13,700,000 to be combined with the 
$11,300,000 in fiscal year 2000 Super Surplus of the Treasury 
Forfeiture Fund to hire new inspectors, agents, or acquire new 
detection technology for use along the Southwest border for a 
total of $25,000,000. The House conferees do not concur with 
the Senate Report language on Targeted Resources for the 
Southwest Border.

                             Ports of Entry

      The conferees have received numerous requests to 
establish, expand, or preserve Customs presence at various 
ports, as well as, to designate new ports of entry. Customs has 
made a commitment to put in place a staffing resource 
allocation model to permit a more transparent and consistent 
basis for making such decisions, but the delay in doing so has 
caused concern about the ability of Customs to fulfill its 
responsibilities. The conferees therefore direct the Treasury 
Department and Customs to complete this model and to report to 
the Committees on Appropriations not later than November 1, 
2000 on its implementation. In relation to this, the conferees 
urge the Customs Service to give full consideration to the 
needs of the following areas for increases or improvements in 
Customs services: Fargo, North Dakota; Highgate Springs, 
Vermont; Charleston, South Carolina; Charleston, West Virginia; 
Honolulu, Hawaii; Great Falls, Sweetgrass-Coutts, and Missoula, 
Montana; Tri-Cities Regional Airport, Tennessee; Dulles 
International Airport; Louisville International Airport; Miami 
International Airport; Pittsburg, New Hampshire; San Antonio, 
Texas; and multiple port areas in Arizona, New Mexico, and 
Florida.

                  AIR AND MARINE INTERDICTION PROGRAMS

      The conferees agree to provide $133,228,000 instead of 
$125,778,000 as proposed by the House and $128,228,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. Included in this amount is $5,000,000 
for source zone deployment of P-3's; $2,174,000 to maintain 
current levels; $7,450,000 for flight safety and enhancements; 
and $9,916,000 for costs associated with the delivery of new P-
3's.

                        Automation Modernization

      The conferees agree to provide $258,400,000 instead of 
$233,400,000 as proposed by the House and $128,400,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. Included in this amount is $5,400,000

      The conferees agree to provide $182,901,000 as proposed 
by the House and Senate. The conferees agree to include a 
provision as proposed by the Senate with respect to 
administrative costs associated with certain trust funds.

                        Internal Revenue Service

                 PROCESSING, ASSISTANCE, AND MANAGEMENT

      The conferees agree to provide $3,567,001,000 instead of 
$3,487,232,000 as proposed by the House and $3,506,939,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The conferees fully fund the 
President's request with respect to adjustments required to 
maintain current levels of service, organizational 
modernization, and operational contract support. The funding 
level also reflects an increase of $60,000,000 above the fiscal 
year 2000 level as a result of an inter-appropriation transfer 
during fiscal year 2000. The conferees have not provided any 
funding for the Staffing Tax Administration for Balance and 
Equity (STABLE) initiative, a proposed fiscal year 2001 inter-
appropriation transfer, or the electronic tax administration 
marketing initiative.

                     IRS DATA FOR ECONOMIC MODELING

      The conferees are aware of the critical importance and 
usefulness of IRS data to economic modeling, such as the 
modeling used to project the economic impact of proposed Social 
Security legislation. The conferees direct IRS to continue 
working closely with the Bureau of the Census to ensure the 
appropriate availability of these data in a timely manner to 
groups such as the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to 
facilitate the operation of CBO's long-term models of Social 
Security and Medicare. CBO requires records from the IRS' 
Statistics Of Income that are matched with survey data from the 
Bureau of the Census (involving the Current Population Survey 
and the Survey of Income and Program Participation) and records 
of the Social Security Administration with all record 
identifiers removed.

                          TAX LAW ENFORCEMENT

      The conferees agree to provide $3,382,402,000 instead of 
$3,332,676,000 as proposed by the House and $3,378,040,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The conferees fully fund the 
President's request with respect to adjustments required to 
maintain current levels of service and operational contract 
support. The funding level also reflects a decrease of 
$100,000,000 below the fiscal year 2000 level as a result of an 
inter-appropriation transfer during fiscal year 2000 and a 
decrease of $666,000 for a transfer to the Treasury Inspector 
General for Tax Administration, as requested. The conferees 
have not provided any funding for the Staffing Tax 
Administration for Balance and Equity (STABLE) initiative or 
for the Counterterrorism Initiative, nor have they agreed to a 
proposed transfer of $41,000,000 out of the account as an 
inter-appropriation transfer during fiscal year 2001.

                          INFORMATION SYSTEMS

      The conferees agree to provide $1,545,090,000 instead of 
$1,488,090,000 as proposed by the House and $1,505,090,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The conferees fully fund the 
President's request with the exception of the Staffing Tax 
Administration for Balance and Equity (STABLE) initiative and 
$3,000,000 for an inter-appropriation transfer proposed for 
fiscal year 2001.

          ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS--INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE

which allows the transfer of 5 percent of any appropriation 
made available to the IRS to any other IRS appropriation 
subject to Congressional approval.
      Section 102. The conferees agree to continue a provision 
which requires the IRS to maintain a training program in 
taxpayers' rights, dealing courteously with taxpayers, and 
cross cultural relations.
      Section 103. The conferees agree to continue a provision 
which requires the IRS to institute and enforce policies and 
practices that will safeguard the confidentiality of taxpayer 
information.
      Section 104. The conferees agree to continue a provision 
proposed by the Senate with respect to the IRS 1-800 help line 
service.

                      United States Secret Service

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conferees agree to provide $823,800,000 as proposed

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

proposed by the Senate. The conferees fully fund the 
President's request.

        APPORTIONMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS

      The conferees do not concur with the House report 
language regarding apportionment for International Food 
Assistance Programs.

                 Office of National Drug Control Policy

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

proposed by the Senate.

                     Federal Drug Control Programs

             HIGH INTENSITY DRUG TRAFFICKING AREAS PROGRAM

      The conferees agree to provide $206,500,000 instead of 
$217,000,000 as proposed by the House and $196,000,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The conferees fully fund the 
Administration's request, and include an additional $14,500,000 
to increase funding or expand existing HIDTAs, or to fund newly 
designated HIDTAs. The conferees provide that existing HIDTAs 
shall be funded at fiscal year 2000 levels unless the ONDCP 
Director submits to the Committees, and the Committees approve, 
justification for changes in those levels based on clearly 
articulated priorities for the HIDTA program, as well as 
published ONDCP performance measures of effectiveness (PMEs). 
Similarly, while the conferees provide additional funding that 
may be used for newly designated HIDTAs, they direct that no 
funds may be obligated for such purposes until similar 
justification is provided to the Committees for approval.
      The ability to evaluate effectiveness of individual 
HIDTAs, and to match funding needs against budgets, depends on 
reliable and consistent methodology for performance measurement 
and management. This is particularly important given the key 
role HIDTAs play in bringing together many divergent 
counterdrug agencies and crosscutting programs--which also 
exacerbates the problem of isolating the impact of HIDTAs. The 
conferees anticipate that the completion of work by the HIDTA 
Performance Management Working Group will improve performance 
measurement methodology and data collection covering the three 
main target areas identified in 1999. These are: increasing 
compliance with HIDTA developmental standards; dismantling or 
disabling at least 5 percent of targeted drug trafficking 
organizations; and reducing specific types of violent crime. 
The conferees support ONDCP plans to validate and verify the 
HIDTA management, including the use of on-site reviews and 
external financial evaluations.
      As ONDCP reviews candidates for new HIDTA funding, the 
conferees direct it to consider the following: Las Vegas, NV; 
Arkansas; Minnesota; North Carolina; and Northern Florida, 
which have requested designation; increases for Central 
Florida, Southwest Border (for New Mexico, South Texas, West 
Texas, and Arizona), New England, Gulf Coast, Oregon, Northwest 
(including southwest and eastern Washington), and Chicago 
HIDTAs; and full minimum funding for new HIDTAs in Central 
Valley, California, Hawaii, and Ohio. The conferees urge ONDCP 
to consider using funds provided above the budget request for 
designating new HIDTAs from areas which have already submitted 
requests.

                        SPECIAL FORFEITURE FUND

      The conferees agree to provide $233,600,000 instead of 
$219,000,000 as proposed by the House and $144,300,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. Of this amount, the conferees provide 
$185,000,000 for the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign; 
$40,000,000 to carry out the Drug-Free Communities Act; 
$3,000,000 for the costs of space and operations of the counter 
drug intelligence executive secretariat (CDX); $3,300,000 for 
anti-doping efforts of the United States Olympic Committee; 
$1,300,000 to the Metro Intelligence Support and Technical 
Investigative Center (MISTIC); and $1,000,000 for the National 
Drug Court Institute.

                National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign

      The conferees negate neither the House nor Senate 
Committee Report language regarding the youth media campaign. 
The conferees are concerned with ONDCP's use of pro bono 
credits under the match program for programming content, and 
note with interest the Statement of Pro-Bono Match Program and 
Guidelines that ONDCP posted on its website in July 2000. 
Consistent with those guidelines, the conferees direct that 
ONDCP not issue credits for ad time and/or space if already 
purchased with funds appropriated for the campaign. 
Furthermore, the conferees direct that ONDCP not issue any 
credits for programming content once a program is in 
syndication unless it has previously reported to the Committees 
on Appropriations reasons why such credit is necessary. 
Finally, the conferees underscore the language on page 11 of 
the guidelines that reads ``ONDCP exercises its authority to 
review public service match materials for credit and valuation 
through its primary advertising contractor. No ONDCP contractor 
may make suggestions or requests about, or otherwise attempt to 
influence or modify the creative product of any media 
organization or representative for the purpose of qualifying 
for pro bono match credit.'' In keeping with this the conferees 
direct ONDCP to ensure that neither it nor its contractor will 
review programming content under consideration for pro bono 
credit under the match program until such programming is in its 
final form.

                     TITLE IV--INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

cover a portion of the new obligational needs of the Fund.

                         AFRICAN BURIAL GROUND

      The conferees recognize the efforts of GSA to memorialize 
the 17th and 18th century African Americans whose remains were 
discovered during the excavation for a new federal building at 
Foley Square in lower Manhattan. Since 1992, significant work 
has been conducted on the memorialization but additional work 
is required prior to and including the reinterment of the 
remains. The conferees expect GSA to complete the project using 
funds made available from the Federal Buildings Fund or from 
the borrowing authority remaining for the buildings project at 
Foley Square.

                      CONSTRUCTION AND ACQUISITION

      The conferees agree to provide $472,176,000 instead of no 
funding as proposed by the House and $3,000,000 as proposed by 
the Senate. These funds are provided for nine projects. The 
conferees direct GSA to provide a written report to the 
Committees on Appropriations with respect to how GSA plans to 
allocate these funds among the various projects prior to 
allocating the funds. Within the funds provided the conferees 
have included $3,500,000 for the design and site acquisition of 
a combined law enforcement facility in Saint Petersburg, 
Florida.

This level fully funds the request with the following 
exceptions: no funds are provided for the chlorofluorocarbon 
program, the energy program is funded at $5,000,000, and the 
glass fragment retention program is funded at $5,000,000.

                          BUILDING OPERATIONS

      The conferees agree to provide $1,624,771,000 as proposed 
by the Senate instead of $1,580,909,000 as proposed by the 
House. Within this limitation level, the conferees have 
included $500,000 to conduct a site selection analysis for a 
replacement facility for the National Center for Environmental 
Prediction of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration, currently located in Camp Springs, Maryland. 
The delineated area shall be in the Washington, D.C. 
Metropolitan area and include the consideration of appropriate 
educational institutions qualified to be project partners. A 
report on the findings of the study shall be provided to the 
conferees within 120 days of the enactment of this Act.

                         POLICY AND OPERATIONS

include $3,285,000 for pay costs to maintain current levels, 
$2,075,000 for protection and maintenance at the Lorton complex 
in Virginia, and $8,000,000 for the critical infrastructure 
protection initiative. The conferees agree to provide up to 
$500,000 for virtual archive storage. And agree to provide 
$190,000, from within available funds, for the Plains States 
Depopulation Symposium as proposed by the Senate. The conferees 
do not agree to the reduction of funding from the fiscal year 
2000 level for the digital learning technology effort and 
direct that $1,000,000 be used to continue a digital medical 
education project in connection with the Native American 
Digital Telehealth Project and Upper Great Plains Native 
American Telehealth Program and that $1,000,000 be used to 
continue activities that will be the basis for the 21st Century 
Distributed Learning Environment in Education.

                           ALTERNATIVE FUELS

      The conferees urge the General Services Administration to 
use ethanol, biodiesel, and other alternative fuels to the 
maximum extent practicable in meeting GSA's fuel needs.

                   EXPENSES, PRESIDENTIAL TRANSITION
