            (b) assistance for the purpose of establishing or

                         clean coal technology


    Sec. 537. (a) Findings.--The Congress finds as follows:
            (1) The United States is the world leader in the 
        development of environmental technologies, particularly 
        clean coal technology.
            (2) Severe pollution problems affecting people in 
        developing countries, and the serious health problems 
        that result from such pollution, can be effectively 
        addressed through the application of United States 
        technology.
            (3) During the next century, developing countries, 
        particularly countries in Asia such as China and India, 
        will dramatically increase their consumption of 
        electricity, and low quality coal will be a major 
        source of fuel for power generation.
            (4) Without the use of modern clean coal 
        technology, the resultant pollution will cause enormous 
        health and environmental problems leading to diminished 
        economic growth in developing countries and, thus, 
        diminished United States exports to those growing 
        markets.
    (b) Statement of Policy.--It is the policy of the United 
States to promote the export of United States clean coal 
technology. In furtherance of that policy, the Secretary of 
State, the Secretary of the Treasury (acting through the United 
States executive directors to international financial 
institutions), the Secretary of Energy, and the Administrator 
of the United States Agency for International Development 
(USAID) should, as appropriate, vigorously promote the use of 
United States clean coal technology in environmental and energy 
infrastructure programs, projects and activities. Programs, 
projects and activities for which the use of such technology 
should be considered include reconstruction assistance for the 
Balkans, activities carried out by the Global Environment 
Facility, and activities funded from USAID's Development Credit 
Authority.

policy on terminating the arab league boycott of israel and normalizing 
                         relations with israel


    Sec. 539. It is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) the Arab League countries should immediately

        that have commercial ties with Israel and should 
        normalize their relations with Israel;
            (2) the decision by the Arab League in 1997 to 
        reinstate the boycott against Israel was deeply 
        troubling and disappointing;
            (3) the fact that only three Arab countries 
        maintain full diplomatic relations with Israel is also 
        of deep concern;
            (4) the Arab League should immediately rescind its 
        decision on the boycott and its members should develop 
        normal relations with their neighbor Israel; and
            (5) the President should--
                    (A) take more concrete steps to encourage 
                vigorously Arab League countries to renounce

                        intended;
                            (ii) policies seeking to prevent

                        financing that would displace a 
                        population involuntarily or be to the 
                        detriment of the people or culture of

                        financing by the Bank concentrates 
                        chiefly on projects and programs that 
                        promote economic and social progress 
                        rather than short-term liquidity

                        qualitative and quantitative indicators

                        suspension of a financing if funds are 
                        being diverted for purposes other than 
                        the purpose for which the financing was 
                        intended;
                            (ii) policies seeking to ensure 
                        that financing by the Fund normally 
                        serves as a catalyst for private sector 
                        financing and does not displace such 
                        financing;

                        trade in goods and services;
                            (v) policies providing that 
                        financing by the Fund concentrates 
                        chiefly on short-term balance of 
                        payments financing; and
                            (vi) policies providing for the 
                        use, in conjunction with the Bank, of 
                        appropriate qualitative and 
                        quantitative indicators to measure 
                        progress toward graduation from

                        terms, including an estimated timetable

section--

``SEC. 63. PRINCIPLES FOR INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND LENDING.

    ``It is the policy of the United States to work to 
implement reforms in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to 
achieve the following goals:
    ``(a) Short-Term Balance of Payments Financing.--Lending 
from the general resources of the Fund should concentrate 
chiefly on short-term balance of payments financing.
    ``(b) Limitations on Medium-Term Financing.--Use of medium-
term lending from the general resources of the Fund should be 
limited to a set of well-defined circumstances, such as--
            ``(1) when a member's balance of payments problems 
        will be protracted,
            ``(2) such member has a strong structural reform 
        program in place, and
            ``(3) the member has little or no access to private 
        sources of capital.
    ``(c) Premium Pricing.--Premium pricing should be 
introduced for lending from the general resources of the Fund, 
for greater than 200 per centum of a member's quota in the 
Fund, to discourage excessive use of Fund lending and to 
encourage members to rely on private financing to the maximum 
extent possible.
    ``(d) Redressing Misreporting of Information.--The Fund 
should have in place and apply systematically a strong 
framework of safeguards and measures to respond to, correct, 
and discourage cases of misreporting of information in the 
context of a Fund program, including--
            ``(1) Suspending Fund disbursements and ensuring 
        that Fund lending is not resumed to members that engage 
        in serious misreporting of material information until 
        such time as remedial actions and sanctions, as 
        appropriate, have been applied;
            ``(2) Ensuring that members make early repayments, 
        where appropriate, of Fund resources disbursed on the 
        basis of misreported information;
            ``(3) Making public cases of serious misreporting 
        of material information;
            ``(4) Requiring all members receiving new 
        disbursements from the Fund to undertake annually 
        independent audits of central bank financial statements 
        and publish the resulting audits; and
            ``(5) Requiring all members seeking new loans from 
        the Fund to provide to the Fund detailed information 
        regarding their internal control procedures, financial 
        reporting and audit mechanisms and, in cases where 
        there are questions about the adequacy of these 
        systems, undertaking an on-site review and identifying 
        needed remedies.''.

                Export-Import Bank of the United States

                         subsidy appropriation

      The conference agreement appropriates $865,000,000 for 
the subsidy appropriation of the Export-Import Bank instead of 
$768,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $742,500,000 as 
proposed by the House.

                        administrative expenses

      The conference agreement appropriates $62,000,000 for 
administrative expenses of the Export-Import Bank instead of 
$58,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $55,000,000 as 
proposed by the House. The conferees also have included a 
limitation of $30,000 on representation expenses of members of 
the Bank's Board of Directors.
      The managers are very concerned by the Bank's recent 
consideration of a change to its regulations that would reduce 
the volume of U.S. exports financed by the Bank that are 
subject to cargo preference regulations. The managers direct 
that none of the funds provided under this heading in this or 
prior year appropriation acts shall be used to plan, finalize, 
or implement any notice, regulation, or change in policy with 
regard to Public Resolution 17 (46 App. U.S.C. 1241-1) (1998).

                Overseas Private Investment Corporation

                           non-credit account

      The conference agreement provides $38,000,000 for 
administrative expenses of the Overseas Private Investment 
Corporation (OPIC) as proposed by the Senate instead of 
$37,000,000 as proposed by the House.
      The managers urge OPIC to refrain from entering into 
contracts involving the Palestinian Authority until the 
Committees have been informed that contract disputes between 
the Authority and United States corporate entities have been 
resolved.

                      Trade and Development Agency

      The conference agreement appropriates $50,000,000 for the 
Trade and Development Agency instead of $46,000,000 as proposed 
by the Senate and the House. It does not include language 
regarding reimbursements as proposed by the Senate.

                TITLE II--BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  Agency for International Development

                child survival and disease programs fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $963,000,000 for 
the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund instead of 
$886,000,000 as proposed by the House. The Senate bill 
contained no provision on this matter, but included regular and 
emergency funds for these activities under ``Development 
Assistance'' and ``Global Health''. The conference agreement 
also continues limitations on the use of the Fund for non-
project assistance.
      The managers include a United States contribution to 
UNICEF, and AID's program to promote basic education for 
children, within the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund, 
as proposed by the House.
      The conference agreement includes language allocating 
$963,000,000 among six program categories in the Child Survival 
and Disease Programs Fund: $295,000,000 for child survival and 
maternal health, including vaccine-preventable diseases such as 
polio; $30,000,000 for vulnerable children; $300,000,000 for 
HIV/AIDS; $125,000,000 for other infectious diseases; 
$103,000,000 for children's basic education; and $110,000,000 
for UNICEF. The conferees expect that any change proposed 
subsequent to the allocation as directed in bill language will 
be subject to the requirements of section 515 of the Act. A 
full definition of these program categories and their 
components can be found on pages 8 through 10 of House Report 
106-270.
      Within the child survival and maternal health program, 
authority is provided to transfer up to $50,000,000 as proposed 
by the Senate to a fund established for child immunization by 
the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI). The 
House bill provided authority to transfer up to $37,500,000 to 
GAVI. The managers are supportive of the GAVI and direct that 
the Committees be informed in writing 20 days prior to the 
obligation of any funds for GAVI on the proposed use of any 
U.S. contribution, particularly with regard to the amount to be 
donated for procurement of vaccines for children.
      The managers note that a large part of the vulnerable 
children program assists AIDS orphans, who also benefit from 
the HIV/AIDS program. Although the conference agreement does 
not include bill language regarding funding for blind children, 
as proposed by the Senate, the managers recommend not less than 
$1,200,000 for assistance for blind children. The managers also 
support a total of $5,000,000 for the Kiwanis/UNICEF Iodine 
Deficiency program, with $2,500,000 from the Child Survival and 
Disease Programs account and $2,500,000 from regional accounts 
for Europe and Eurasia. AID is also encouraged to provide up to 
$2,000,000 to support non-governmental organizations, such as 
Special Olympics, that work with older children, including 
those with cognitive disabilities and mild mental retardation, 
to teach life and job skills. The vulnerable children program 
and AID's Office of Private Voluntary Cooperation are 
encouraged to provide small matching grants to American-led 
volunteer programs in India and other nations that seek to 
remedy physical disabilities through reconstructive surgery.
      The conference agreement includes $315,000,000 for HIV/
AIDS, of which $300,000,000 is allocated within this account 
and not less than $15,000,000 in other accounts and programs. 
The conference agreement does not include bill language 
concerning microbicides. However, the managers endorse the 
Senate report language on microbicides and direct that not less 
than $15,000,000 from the HIV/AIDS program and the 
``Development Assistance'' account be made available to the 
Office of Health and Nutrition for microbicide research and 
development. These funds are to be managed by the Director of 
the HIV/AIDS Division. In addition, the managers support the 
International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), which seeks to 
accelerate the development and distribution of an effective 
AIDS vaccine for use in developing countries. The managers urge 
that not less than $10,000,000 be provided as a contribution to 
the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative.
      In addition, the managers direct AID to make available 
$500,000 for a proposal from the University of California at 
San Francisco to develop detailed epidemiological HIV/AIDS 
profiles for priority countries and an online, searchable 
database of key comparative indicators. The managers also 
encourage AID to collaborate with the Peace Corps' HIV/AIDS 
initiative, especially in supporting training activities.
      The expected results of funds to develop and promote the 
use of vaccines in developing countries will also assist 
international travelers to endemic areas. The managers urge the 
Department of State and AID to require staff, grantees, and 
contractors to take all feasible steps to reduce the 
importation of vaccine-preventible infectious diseases, such as 
hepatitis, into the United States.
      The managers note that the Global AIDS and Tuberculosis 
Relief Act of 2000 (P.L. 106-264) authorized that 65 percent of 
the HIV/AIDS funding be provided through non-governmental 
organizations (NGOs). The managers concur that NGOs, including 
religious institutions and faith based organizations, provide 
invaluable services in the fight against HIV/AIDS. In 
anticipation of an increasing involvement of the public sector, 
particularly in the areas of treatment and the provision of 
interventions to reduce mother-to-child transmission, the 
managers agree that assistance provided through NGOs in 
cooperation with a foreign government or using government 
facilities may be counted against the 65 percent target in 
AID's strategy to implement the Act.
      Within the HIV/AIDS program, authority is provided to 
transfer $20,000,000 to the fund authorized by section 141 of 
the Global AIDS and Tuberculosis Relief Act. The managers 
expect the Secretary of the Treasury and the Administrator of 
the Agency for International Development to report to the 
Committees no later than April 30, 2001 on progress toward 
establishment of an international AIDS Trust Fund administered 
by the World Bank.
      The managers urge that expanded resources be made 
available to mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) programs. As 
effective implementation of MTCT programs will take time, 
during which health care workers will be trained, laboratory 
and testing facilities established, and community based care 
services for HIV positive mothers developed, AID may not be 
able to meet the Global AIDS Act's 8.3 percent MTCT funding 
target in fiscal year 2001. The managers expect that USAID will 
achieve the MTCT target by the end of fiscal year 2002.
      The conference agreement includes at least $60,000,000 
from all accounts to address the global health threat from 
tuberculosis, including not less than $45,000,000 from the 
other infectious diseases program in the Child Survival and 
Disease Programs Fund. The managers urge AID to continue to 
work in close collaboration with organizations such as the U.S. 
Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, the 
Gorgas Memorial Institute, and the Global STOP TB Initiative to 
implement effective tuberculosis control programs at the local 
level. The managers direct AID to continue and expand TB 
programs undertaken in cooperation with federal and state 
governments in Mexico, especially along Mexico's borders with 
Texas, California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Guatemala.
      The other infectious diseases program also includes 
$30,000,000 for antimicrobial resistance and infectious disease 
surveillance, and $50,000,000 for international efforts to 
reduce the incidence of malaria. Drug resistant parasites and 
insecticide-resistant mosquitoes exacerbate malaria 
transmission and place millions throughout the world at risk of 
a crippling and often fatal disease. For this reason, the 
managers encourage USAID to designate $2,000,000 to support the 
establishment of coordinated centers of excellence for malaria 
research, to focus on tropical and sub-tropical regions. The 
managers support and urge AID to favorably consider proposals 
for a concerted approach to limiting the resurgence of malaria 
that are submitted jointly by the University of Notre Dame's 
Vector Biology Laboratory, Tulane University's Department of 
Tropical Medicine in New Orleans, and Latin American and 
African counterpart institutions.
      The managers are aware that the HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis 
crises require extraordinary efforts on the part of the U.S. 
Government. USAID is encouraged to use, as appropriate, its 
existing waiver authorities regarding financing and procurement 
of goods and services, and grant making, in order to expedite 
the provision of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis assistance and 
enhance the efficiency of that assistance.
      The managers support and urge AID to favorably consider 
proposals by Carelift International. The managers anticipate 
that the ongoing, multiyear collaboration between AID and 
Carelift International will be expanded and require $7,000,000, 
including future year appropriations. The conference agreement 
does not include Senate language directing AID to make 
available to Carelift International up to $7,000,000 from 
fiscal year 2001 funds only.
      The managers also direct AID to continue to provide the 
Committees with a detailed annual report not later than 
February 15, 2001, on the programs, projects, and activities 
undertaken by the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund 
during fiscal year 2000.
      Funds appropriated for the Child Survival and Disease 
Programs Fund are intended to be used for programs, projects 
and activities. Funds for administrative expenses to manage 
Fund activities are provided in a separate account, with two 
exceptions included in the conference agreement: authority for 
AID's central and regional bureaus to use up to $125,000 from 
program funds for Operating Expense-funded personnel to better 
monitor and provide oversight of the Fund; and, in section 522, 
authority to use up to $16,000,000 to reimburse other 
government agencies and private institutions for professional 
services. Any proposed transfer of appropriations from the Fund 
for administrative expenses of AID under any other authority 
shall be subject to section 515 of this Act.

                         Development Assistance

      The conference agreement appropriates $1,305,000,000 for 
``Development Assistance'' instead of $1,258,000,000 as 
proposed by the House and $1,368,250,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The Senate included funding for programs carried out by 
the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' under its 
``Development Assistance'' account.
      Of the funds under this heading, the conference agreement 
appropriates up to $12,000,000 for the Inter-American 
Foundation and up to $16,000,000 to the African Development 
Foundation. The House bill proposed up to $10,000,000 for the 
Inter-American Foundation and up to $16,000,000 for the African 
Development Foundation. The Senate amendment did not propose 
funding for the Inter-American Foundation and provided up to 
$14,400,000 for the African Development Foundation. Section 591 
of the conference agreement provides the President with the 
authority to abolish the Inter-American Foundation during 
fiscal year 2001.
      The Senate amendment proposed that not less than 
$425,000,000 be made available to carry out section 104(b) of 
the Foreign Assistance Act, regarding international population 
planning assistance. The House addressed this matter in section 
586 of its bill and placed a ceiling of $385,000,000 on 
bilateral family planning assistance. The conference agreement 
addresses funding and restrictions for international family 
planning in section 598.
      The conference agreement does not include language 
contained in the Senate amendment providing that $2,500,000 may 
be transferred from this account to the ``International 
Organizations and Programs'' account to provide a total 
contribution of $5,000,000 to the International Fund for 
Agricultural Development (IFAD). The conference agreement 
provides $5,000,000 from title IV of this Act for IFAD, as 
proposed by the House.
      The conference agreement includes bill language similar 
to the Senate amendment that not less than $310,000,000 should 
be provided for agriculture and rural development programs 
through Foreign Assistance Act funds and through Support for 
East European Development Act funds. The House bill did not 
address this matter. The managers continue to support 
international agriculture and rural development activities and 
direct AID to increase funding for these important programs.
      The conference agreement provides that, of the funds for 
agriculture and rural development programs, $30,000,000 should 
be provided for biotechnology research and development. The 
conference agreement does not include bill language for the 
University of Missouri-St. Louis International Laboratory for 
Tropical Agriculture biotechnology program (ILTAP), as proposed 
by the Senate. However, the managers support and urge AID to 
favorably consider $1,000,000 for ILTAP to train scientists 
from Southeast Asia in methods to fight diseases that threaten 
rice, tomatoes, and cassava which the managers believe will 
play a key role in stabilizing the food supply for the region.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language 
for the University of California, Davis, as proposed by the 
Senate. However, the managers support and urge AID to favorably 
consider $1,000,000 for the University of California, Davis to 
support research and to train foreign scientists in programs 
which address improving crop agriculture in Central Africa.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language 
for Tuskegee University, as proposed by the Senate. However, 
the managers support and urge AID to favorably consider 
$1,000,000 to establish a ``Center to Promote Biotechnology in 
International Agriculture'' at Tuskegee University. This center 
will promote extension and outreach aimed at policy makers, the 
media, farmers, and consumers in cooperation with local 
scientists. The emphasis should be to identify agricultural 
genetic technology applications crucial to combating hunger, 
malnutrition, and boosting low incomes in rural areas.
      The conferees agree that Marquette University's Les Aspin 
Center for Government, which has been carrying out training 
programs for Africans in democracy and leadership, should 
receive the same consideration as similar programs at other 
Universities mentioned in the Senate report.
      The conference agreement provides that not less than 
$2,300,000 should be made available for a core grant to the 
International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), which is 
similar to the Senate amendment. The House bill did not address 
this matter. The managers strongly support the fertilizer-
related research and development being conducted by IFDC and 
direct the Administrator of AID to make at least $4,000,000 
available to IFDC, including not less than $2,300,000 for its 
core grant.
      The conference agreement provides not less than 
$5,200,000 for AmeriCares for the construction, rehabilitation, 
and operation of community-based primary healthcare facilities 
in Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
      The conference agreement provides that $500,000 should be 
made available for support of the United States 
Telecommunications Training Institute. The Senate amendment 
included bill language mandating that such funds be made 
available for this purpose. The House bill did not address this 
matter.
      The conference agreement provides that $17,000,000 should 
be made available for the American Schools and Hospitals Abroad 
(ASHA) program. The Senate amendment included bill language 
mandating that such funds be made available for this purpose. 
The House bill did not address this matter. The managers direct 
ASHA to give full consideration to grant proposals from all 
qualified institutions. These may include grant proposals for 
curriculum, staff support, and related expenses and for 
expansion of overseas facilities owned and operated by U.S. 
based, non-profit educational institutions. No regulation, 
statute, or congressional directive precludes ASHA funds from 
being utilized for these purposes.
      The conference agreement provides that not less than 
$2,000,000 should be made available to support an international 
media training center. The Senate amendment included bill 
language mandating that such funds be made available for this 
purpose. The House bill did not address this matter.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language 
proposed in the Senate amendment which provided up to 
$7,000,000 for Carelift International. The House bill did not 
address this matter. The managers have addressed Carelift 
International in the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs 
Fund'' section of the statement of the managers.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language 
providing up to $1,500,000 to develop and integrate education 
programs aimed at eliminating female genital mutilation (FGM), 
as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House bill did not 
address this matter. The managers direct the Secretary of State 
to determine the prevalence of the practice of FGM and the 
existence and enforcement of laws prohibiting this practice. 
The Secretary shall submit to the Committees on Appropriations, 
not later than March 1, 2001, these findings and 
recommendations on how the United States government can best 
work to eliminate this practice. The managers direct AID to 
make available $1,500,000 to develop and integrate into 
development strategies, where appropriate, educational programs 
aimed at eliminating FGM. Further, the managers direct that 
AID's fiscal year 2002 budget justification include a narrative 
regarding the agency's proposed budget and programs in this 
area.
      The managers continue to be concerned about worldwide 
trafficking of women and children and direct AID to provide not 
less than $2,500,000, including funds from under the heading 
``Independent States'', to continue and expand these anti-
trafficking programs.
      The managers strongly support the Collaborative Research 
Support Programs (CRSPs), as stated in the House and Senate 
reports. Prior to the submission of the report required by 
section 653 of the Foreign Assistance Act, AID is directed to 
consult with the Committees on Appropriations regarding the 
proposed allocation of agriculture, rural development and CRSPs 
resources.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language 
proposed in the Senate amendment providing $1,500,000 for 
Habitat for Humanity International for construction of housing 
in northern India. The House did not address this matter in 
bill language. The managers request that the Department of 
State coordinate with AID in determining the funding 
responsibility for long-term assistance for Tibetan refugees, 
including assistance to refugees residing in India. In this 
regard, the managers would support the proposal to fund the 
Tibetan Resettlement Project in Dehradum, India, consistent 
with Tibetan cultural practices. These funds should be in 
addition to those allocated for Tibetan refugees in ``Migration 
and Refugee Assistance''.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language 
proposed by the Senate amendment regarding microenterprise. The 
House bill did not address this matter. Microenterprise 
authorization is included in Public Law 106-309.
      The managers continue to believe that protecting 
biodiversity and tropical forests in developing countries is 
critical to the global environment and U.S. economic 
prosperity, especially for the agricultural and pharmaceutical 
industries. The managers direct AID to continue to work to 
increase overall biodiversity funding, as well as funding to 
the Office of Environment and Natural Resources, consistent 
with the House and Senate reports. Not later than 60 days after 
enactment of this Act, AID shall report to the Committees on 
Appropriations regarding the proposed allocation of resources 
for biodiversity on a bureau-by-bureau basis.
      The conference agreement does not include bill language 
regarding the Foundation for Environmental Security and 
Sustainability, as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House 
bill did not address this matter. The managers support and urge 
AID to favorably consider $2,500,000 for the Foundation for 
Environmental Security and Sustainability to support 
environmental threat assessments with interdisciplinary experts 
and academicians utilizing various technologies to address 
issues such as infectious diseases, and environmental 
indicators and warnings as they pertain to the security of a 
region.
      The managers support the work of Alfalit International, 
an educational nongovernmental organization dedicated to 
promotion of literacy, elementary education, and community 
development in Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. 
Alfalit's proven record during the past three decades has 
helped significantly reduce child and adult illiteracy 
throughout Latin America and Africa. The managers direct AID to 
provide $1,500,000 to Alfalit to develop and implement programs 
to combat adult illiteracy in countries in which AID operates.
      The managers encourage AID to support initiatives 
designed to promote child safety in developing countries such 
as those designed and carried out by the National Safe Kids 
Campaign. The managers believe that developing countries could 
benefit greatly from the 300 local programs already operating 
throughout the United States.
      The managers support and direct AID to provide up to 
$1,000,000 for the Center for Latin American Trade Expansion at 
the University of San Francisco to assist in the development of 
trade promotion initiatives at the USF Business School's Center 
for Economic Development.
      The managers commend the progress made by the Eastern 
European Real Property Program in the Europe and Eurasia Bureau 
since 1992. As the program expands into other regions as the 
International Real Property Program (IRPP), the Committee 
recommends that other AID regional bureaus and missions 
seriously consider cooperation with the IRPP as housing, 
shelter, and urban activities are included in country 
strategies. The managers encourage AID to fund the IRPP at a 
level not less than the fiscal year 1998 amount.

                     Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund

      The managers direct that $12,000,000 be provided through 
the ``Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund'' to address the medical, 
rehabilitative, economic and social needs of war victims, 
particularly those who have been severely disabled from 
landmines and other unexploded ordnance. Of this amount, up to 
$10,000,000 is to be funded from the ``Development Assistance'' 
account and the ``Economic Support Fund.'' The balance should 
be funded from Office of Transition Initiatives resources, and 
with funds from the demining budget of the ``Nonproliferation, 
Anti-terrorism, Demining and Related Programs'' account.

                                 Cyprus

      The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
provides not less than $15,000,000 of the funds made available 
under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support Fund'' 
for assistance for Cyprus for scholarships, administrative 
support of the scholarship program, bicommunal projects, and 
measures aimed at reunification of the island. The House bill 
did not address this matter.

                                Lebanon

      The conference agreement includes language that provides 
that not less than $35,000,000 of the funds made available 
under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support Fund'' 
shall be made available for Lebanon to be used, among other 
programs, for scholarships and direct support of the American 
educational institutions in Lebanon. The language is similar to 
House and Senate language that provided that not less than 
$18,000,000 should be made available for Lebanon for these 
purposes.
      The managers are troubled by reports of the abduction to 
Lebanon of American children by estranged parents, and urge the 
Lebanese Government to assist in locating and returning these 
children to the United States.

                                 Burma

      The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
provides not less than $6,500,000 of the funds made available 
under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support Fund'' 
for assistance to support democracy activities in Burma and for 
other specified activities. These funds are made available 
notwithstanding any other provision of law, and shall be 
subject to the regular notification procedures of the 
Committees on Appropriations. Of these funds, $3,500,000 should 
be derived from ``Economic Support Fund'' and $3,000,000 should 
be derived from ``Development Assistance''. The House bill did 
not address this matter.
      The managers are deeply concerned by recent actions taken 
by the SPDC to limit efforts by Aung San Suu Kyi to travel 
outside Rangoon to meet with members of the National League for 
Democracy (NLD). On two separate occasions, she has been 
detained or blocked from carrying out reasonable and legal 
political organization activities. During the past year, Aung 
San Suu Kyi has continued to call upon the junta to participate 
in a dialogue to bring about reconciliation and democracy. The 
response from the junta has been to escalate repression of 
democratic activists and further isolate and attempt to 
intimidate Aung San Suu Kyi. The conferees commend the NLD and 
its leadership for its continued courage and effort to restore 
democracy to Burma.
      In addition, the managers take note of the conditions 
under which Min Ko Niang continues to suffer. In 1989, he led 
students in non-violent protests against the military regime 
and was an outspoken supporter for democracy and human rights. 
For his actions, Min Ko Niang was arrested and ultimately 
sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in solitary confinement in 
the notorious Insein Prison. Min Ko Niang has been offered 
immediate release by the military junta in return for signing a 
statement renouncing the democracy movement and abandoning any 
future activity in politics. He has steadfastly refused to sign 
any document. In recognition of his courage, the managers 
direct that not less than $250,000 of the funds made available 
be dedicated to establishing a Min Ko Niang student scholarship 
and support fund.

                           Conservation Fund

      The conference agreement includes a provision, which is 
similar to the Senate amendment, that not less than $4,000,000 
should be made available for the Conservation Fund. The House 
bill did not address this matter. The managers direct that not 
less than $4,000,000 be provided equally from ``Development 
Assistance'' and ``Economic Support Fund'' to support the 
preservation of habitats and related activities for endangered 
wildlife, including $1,500,000 for programs to protect 
orangutans in Indonesia, $1,500,000 for programs to protect 
gorillas in central Africa, and $1,000,000 for programs to 
protect cheetahs in Namibia. The managers direct AID to consult 
with the Committees in advance on the proposed uses of these 
funds.

                  Private and Voluntary Organizations

      The conference agreement includes language proposed by 
the House and the Senate providing that funds appropriated for 
development assistance programs should be available to private 
and voluntary organizations at a level which is at least 
equivalent to the level provided in fiscal year 1995. The 
conference agreement also requires that the Administrator of 
AID inform the Committees on Appropriations prior to waiving 
the requirement that private voluntary organizations receive at 
least 20 percent of their total annual funding for 
international activities from sources other than the United 
States government. The House bill included a similar provision.

                   International Disaster Assistance

      The conference agreement appropriates $165,000,000 for 
``International Disaster Assistance'', as proposed by the House 
bill, instead of $220,000,000 as proposed by the Senate 
amendment. The managers recommend the establishment of a 
separate account for AID's Office of Transition Initiatives. 
Therefore, the conference agreement provides the necessary 
resources requested to meet all existing and projected disaster 
needs in fiscal year 2001.
      The managers are concerned by reports of quality problems 
in food aid commodities, including significant losses of micro-
nutrients during production and field preparation, and believe 
that urgent action is needed to improve the quality of 
commodities provided to vulnerable populations and ensure the 
delivery of essential nutrients. The managers direct the 
Administrator of AID, after consultation with agriculture 
commodity producers and private voluntary organizations, to 
establish a plan and mechanism to ensure cooperation between 
AID and the Department of Agriculture to improve and assure the 
quality of commodities provided under this Act.

                         Transition Initiatives

      The conference agreement appropriates $50,000,000 for a 
new account for Transition Initiatives to support AID's Office 
of Transition Initiatives (OTI). The House bill proposed 
$40,000,000 for this account. The Senate amendment included 
funding for OTI activities within the ``International Disaster 
Assistance'' account. The conference agreement does not 
preclude OTI from using resources transferred from other 
development and economic assistance funds in this Act. The 
conference agreement requires that AID submit a report to the 
Appropriations Committees not less than five days prior to 
beginning a new program of assistance. The House bill contained 
a similar provision.

         micro and small enterprise development program account

      The conference agreement appropriates $1,500,000 for 
direct loans and loan guarantees and $500,000 for 
administrative expenses for micro and small enterprise 
activities as proposed by the House bill. The Senate amendment 
did not address this matter.

                   development credit program account

                     (including transfer of funds)

      The conference agreement appropriates $1,500,000 in a 
direct appropriation and up to $5,000,000 by transfer from 
funds made available under the heading ``Development 
Assistance'' for the cost of loans and loan guarantees for 
AID's Development Credit Program Account, as proposed by the 
House. In addition, the conference agreement provides 
$4,000,000 for administrative expenses which may be transferred 
to and merged with AID's ``Operating Expenses'' account, as 
proposed by the Senate. The House bill proposed $6,495,000 for 
administrative expenses. The managers endorse House report 
language directing the use of funds under this heading for an 
integrated municipal infrastructure and housing program in 
Costa Rica.

     operating expenses of the agency for international development

      The conference agreement appropriates $520,000,000, 
instead of $509,000,000 proposed by the House and $510,000,000 
proposed by the Senate, for Operating Expenses of the Agency 
for International Development. The conference agreement 
prohibits the use of funds in this account to finance the 
construction or long-term lease of offices for use by AID 
unless the Administrator of AID reports in writing to the 
Appropriations Committees prior to the obligation of funds for 
such purposes, as proposed by the House.

     Operating Expenses of the Agency for International Development

                      office of inspector general

      The conference agreement appropriates $27,000,000 for 
Operating Expenses of the Agency for International Development, 
Office of Inspector General, as proposed by the House. The 
Senate amendment proposed $25,000,000.

                  Other Bilateral Economic Assistance

                         economic support fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $2,295,000,000 for 
the Economic Support Fund instead of $2,208,900,000 as proposed 
by the House and $2,220,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      The conference agreement contains Senate language that 
provides not less than $840,000,000 for Israel and not less 
than $695,000,000 for Egypt, instead of not to exceed those 
sums as proposed by the House. In addition, Senate language is 
included that provides not less than $200,000,000 for the 
Commodity Import Program in Egypt. The House bill did not 
address this matter.
      The conference agreement does not contain Senate language 
that would have authorized the use of up to the Egyptian pound 
equivalent of $50,000,000 for certain specified activities. The 
House bill did not address this matter.
      The conference agreement includes language that provides 
that in exercising the authority to provide cash transfer 
assistance for Israel, the President shall ensure that Israel 
enters into a side letter agreement proportional to the fiscal 
year 1999 agreement.
      The conference agreement also includes language that 
provides that not less than $150,000,000 should be made 
available for assistance for Jordan. The Senate language would 
have mandated this level of support. The House bill did not 
address this matter. The conference agreement does not contain 
Senate language that would have provided $2,000,000 for the 
American Center for Oriental Research, but the managers support 
this proposal and urge the Department of State and the Agency 
for International Development to give it favorable 
consideration.
      The conference agreement includes House language that 
states that not less than $12,000,000 should be made available 
for Mongolia. The Senate amendment did not address this matter.
      The conference agreement also includes House language 
that requires that funds obligated for regional or global 
programs shall be subject to the regular notification 
procedures of the Committees on Appropriations. The Senate 
amendment did not address this matter.
      The conference agreement provides that $5,000,000 should 
be made available for economic rehabilitation and related 
activities in the Aceh region of Indonesia. In May 2000, 
representatives of the Indonesian government and the Free Aceh 
Movement signed a Joint Understanding on a Humanitarian Pause 
for Aceh. Since signing the understanding representatives have 
met and agreed upon a number of projects which would address 
humanitarian and economic needs in Aceh. The managers support 
this dialogue and urge AID through the Office of Transition 
Initiatives to promptly provide assistance to projects agreed 
upon by both parties which further the objectives of the Joint 
Understanding and support a resolution to the conflict in Aceh.
      The managers encourage AID to support effective economic 
restructuring and decentralization programs, where feasible, in 
key regions throughout Indonesia, especially in the Moluccas 
and other areas of Eastern Indonesia.
      The conference agreement also includes language that 
provides that not less than $25,000,000 shall be made available 
for East Timor. The House bill did not address this matter. The 
managers strongly support AID's Economic Rehabilitation and 
Development Project, also known as the East Timor Coffee 
Project. The managers are concerned about reports that certain 
individuals in East Timor are seeking to restore monopolistic 
control of coffee production, that would jeopardize the 
livelihoods of thousands of farmers. The managers will continue 
to closely monitor this project. The managers are also aware of 
the importance of the Consolidated Fund for East Timor and 
expect that the United States will provide up to $4,500,000. 
The managers also urge AID to continue supporting activities 
that will improve the economy and establish democratic 
practices.
      The conference agreement also includes language similar 
to that from the Senate amendment that provides that up to 
$10,000,000 may be used, notwithstanding any other provision of 
law and subject to the regular notification procedures of the 
Committees on Appropriations, to provide certain specified 
assistance to the National Democratic Alliance of Sudan. The 
House bill did not address this matter. The conference 
agreement does not include section 597 of the Senate amendment 
regarding reporting requirements on Sudan. However, the 
managers direct that the Secretary of State report not later 
than March 1, 2001, describing the areas of Sudan which are 
open to Operation Lifeline Sudan (OLS) and those areas which 
are prohibited, and the reasons for these prohibitions; the 
extent of actual deliveries of assistance through OLS since 
January 1997; the areas of Sudan where the United States has 
provided assistance outside of OLS since January 1997, 
including the amount, extent and nature of that assistance; and 
an assessment of the humanitarian needs in areas of Sudan not 
served by OLS.
      The managers encourage USAID to provide an additional 
$1,000,000 in Economic Support Funds during fiscal year 2001 to 
support Phase II of the Haiti Health Systems 2004 Project. The 
additional resources will ensure that financial support to 
health providers operating under performance based contracts 
will not be reduced below fiscal year 2000 levels.
      The managers support and urge the State Department to 
favorably consider the allocation of at least $250,000 in 
funding for South Korean nongovernmental organizations involved 
in activities to promote democratization efforts in North 
Korea. Such funds should be programmed through the National 
Endowment for Democracy.
      The managers support the House report language providing 
$1,000,000 for the Reagan/Fascell Democracy Fellows Program of 
the National Endowment for Democracy.
      The managers support the budget request of $20,000,000 
for assistance for Cambodia through nongovernmental 
organizations (NGO's) and local governments, as appropriate. No 
support would be available to or through the central 
government. The managers support assistance for such activities 
as health (especially to combat HIV/AIDS), education, 
environmental protection and democratization. In addition, the 
managers strongly support funding through NGO's to assist in 
efforts to halt illegal logging operations. The managers also 
endorse the House report language regarding the Cambodian Mine 
Action Center. Finally, the managers commend the work of the 
Documentation Center of Cambodia, which has painstakingly 
cataloged the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge. This evidence will 
be invaluable in any trials of Khmer Rouge leaders. The 
managers direct AID to provide adequate funding so the 
Documentation Center can continue its work.
      The managers direct that in addition to funds otherwise 
requested or made available for Yemen, up to $4,000,000 shall 
be dedicated to counter-terrorism training and investigations. 
The managers also direct that these funds not be made available 
until the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation 
certifies to the Committees on Appropriations that the 
Government of Yemen is fully cooperating with United States 
officials in the investigation of the bombing of the U.S.S. 
Cole.
      The managers also reiterate support for conflict 
resolution programs as described in the House and Senate 
reports, including funding for Seeds of Peace.

                     International Fund for Ireland

      The conference agreement appropriates $25,000,000 as 
proposed by the House. The Senate amendment contained no 
provision on this matter.
      The managers endorse the House and Senate report language 
in urging the application of equal opportunity principles 
through the International Fund for Ireland. The managers also 
endorse the Senate report language on the Northern Ireland 
Voluntary Trust, and the House report language on Project 
Children.

          Assistance for Eastern Europe and the Baltic States

      The conference agreement appropriates $600,000,000 
instead of $535,000,000 as proposed by the House and 
$635,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      The conference agreement does not include minimum funding 
levels for Croatia and Montenegro as proposed by the Senate. 
However, the managers strongly support assistance for both 
countries. From funds appropriated under this heading both in 
this title and in title VI, as well as from funds made 
available in Public Law 106-52, the managers expect that not 
less $65,725,000 will be made available for Croatia and not 
less than $89,000,000 will be made available for Montenegro.
      The managers strongly support the announced intention of 
the Government of Croatia to fulfill several commitments, 
including cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal 
for the Former Yugoslavia; an end to financial, political, 
security, and other support to Herceg Bosna; establishment of a 
swift timetable and cooperation in support of the safe return 
of refugees; and the acceleration of political, media, 
electoral, and anti-corruption reforms. The managers direct 
that the Secretary of State report to the Committees on 
Appropriations on the implementation of these goals prior to 
the obligation of funds for Croatia.
      The conference agreement contains language similar to 
that in the House bill that provides not less than $5,000,000 
for the Baltic States. In addition, it contains language 
similar to that in the Senate amendment that imposes a ceiling 
of $80,000,000 on assistance to Bosnia and Herzegovina from 
funds appropriated under this heading and under the headings 
``Economic Support Fund'' and ``International Narcotics Control 
and Law Enforcement''. The House bill did not address this 
matter.
      The conference agreement contains language similar to 
that in the House bill that prohibits funds for Kosova from 
this account and from ``Economic Support Fund'' and 
``International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement'' to 
exceed 15 percent of the total resources pledged by all donors 
for calendar year 2001 for assistance for Kosova as of March 
31, 2001. The Senate amendment would have prohibited funds for 
Kosova until the Secretary of State certified that the 
resources obligated and expended by the United States in Kosova 
did not exceed 15 percent of the total resources obligated and 
expended by all donors. The conference agreement does not 
contain House language that would also have limited funding for 
Kosova to $150,000,000.
      The conference agreement does not contain language from 
the Senate amendment that would have required that not less 
than 50 percent of the funds made available for Kosova be made 
available through non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The 
House bill did not address this matter. The managers direct 
that the Agency for International Development submit quarterly 
reports to the Committees on Appropriations regarding the 
organizations, activities and levels of support provided 
through local NGOs.
      The conference agreement includes language providing that 
$1,300,000 should be made available to support the National 
Albanian American Council's training program for Kosovar women. 
The Senate amendment would have mandated such support. The 
House bill did not address this matter.
      The conference agreement does not contain Senate language 
regarding $250,000 for assistance to law enforcement officials 
in Kosova to better identify and respond to cases of 
trafficking in persons or $750,000 for a joint project 
developed by the University of Pristina and Dartmouth Medical 
School to help restore and improve educational programs at the 
University of Pristina Medical School. However, the managers 
support funding for these items, as well as for a proposal by 
Florida State University for $2,000,000 to fund a distance 
learning program of instruction in basic legal principles for 
students and professionals in Eastern Europe, and urge the 
Agency for International Development to favorably consider 
these proposals. In addition, the managers reiterate support 
for the Orava Project of the University of Northern Iowa as 
expressed in the House and Senate reports.
      The managers note the crucial importance of a democratic, 
multi-ethnic Macedonia to stability in the Balkans, as well as 
the contributions made by that nation during the Kosova air 
campaign. In view of these factors the managers strongly 
support adequate resources for assistance for Macedonia for 
fiscal year 2001.
      The managers note with great concern the delay in the 
implementation of critical nuclear safety upgrades at the 
Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant in Bulgaria. The managers are 
further concerned that commercial disputes regarding the 
project may negatively affect U.S.-Bulgarian commercial 
relations. Therefore, the Secretary of State is urged to 
communicate to the Government of Bulgaria the need to 
expeditiously begin work on this project.
      The conference agreement includes language similar to 
that in the House bill that authorizes the use of local 
currencies generated by the assistance program in Bosnia for 
use in Eastern Europe consistent with the provisions of the 
Support for East European Democracy (SEED) Act of 1989 and the 
Foreign Assistance Act of 1961. The Senate amendment did not 
address this matter. The managers expect the Agency for 
International Development to consult with the Committees on 
Appropriations on the proposed uses of these funds, and to 
submit a financial plan to the Committees following such 
consultations.
      The conference agreement contains House language 
regarding Presidential authority to withhold funds for Bosnia 
if the Bosnian Federation is not complying with the 
requirements of the Dayton Peace Accord regarding the removal 
of foreign troops, and has not terminated intelligence 
cooperation with Iranian officials. The Senate amendment 
contained similar language.
      The managers request the President to determine whether 
it would be appropriate to expunge by executive order certain 
references in the 1965 report of the Commission on Law 
Enforcement and Administration of Justice, entitled ``The 
Challenge of Crime in a Free Society,'' to Italian nationals.

    Assistance for the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union

      The conference agreement appropriates $810,000,000, 
instead of $740,000,000 as proposed by the House and 
$775,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The managers have 
included a ceiling of 8 percent on management costs instead of 
7 percent as proposed by the Senate for nuclear safety 
activities. Further, the conference agreement places a 
limitation of 25 percent on the percentage of funds that may be 
allocated for any single country as proposed by the House.
      The conference agreement includes not less than 
$45,000,000, as proposed by the House, only for child survival, 
environmental and other health activities; programs to reduce 
the incidence of infectious diseases; and related activities. 
When AID is allocating funds to combat HIV/AIDS and 
tuberculosis in the Europe and Eurasia region, the managers 
direct that funds from regional accounts and the Child Survival 
and Disease Programs Fund are to be provided in approximately 
equal amounts.
      The conference agreement also directs the Coordinator of 
Assistance to the Independent States to obligate not less than 
$1,500,000, primarily through locally-based and indigenous 
private voluntary organizations, to reduce trafficking in women 
and children. The managers urge the Coordinator to augment 
anti-trafficking projects by continuing and strengthening law 
enforcement and other activities to reduce all forms of 
violence against women. As proposed by the Senate, the 
conference agreement mandates the obligation of not less than 
$10,000,000, from this and the migration and refugee account, 
only for nongovernmental organizations providing humanitarian 
relief in Chechnya and Ingushetia.
      The managers strongly support regional cooperation 
efforts among the countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and 
Georgia. To further regional cooperation, the conference 
agreement continues the current six exemptions from the 
statutory restrictions on assistance to the Government of 
Azerbaijan. The managers include a provision that of the funds 
available for the Southern Caucasus region 15 percent, as 
proposed by the House, may be used for confidence-building 
measures and other activities related to the resolution of 
regional conflicts, notwithstanding any other provision of law, 
as proposed by the Senate.
      In support of regional reconciliation in the Caucasus, 
the managers believe that bringing together political leaders, 
academics and other individuals from Georgia, Armenia and 
Azerbaijan to discuss economic and cultural development, 
democracy building, and the needs of victims of conflict would 
be a vital step. Therefore, the managers direct that $900,000 
be made available, from funds for the Southern Caucasus region 
for confidence-building measures for such initiatives, 
specifically, the International Peace Forum, to be held in 
Tbilisi, Georgia, in Spring 2001.
      The conference agreement reserves not less than 
$92,000,000 of the funds in this account for Georgia only and 
not less than $90,000,000 for Armenia only, instead of 
$94,000,000 and $89,000,000, respectively, as proposed by the 
Senate, and 12.5 percent for each as proposed by the House. The 
managers direct the Coordinator and AID to allocate not less 
than $25,000,000 of the funds made available for Georgia for 
security assistance for border and export control only and up 
to $5,000,000 for the training of municipal and regional 
officials in management of water resource, transportation, and 
other sectors operated or regulated by local governments in 
Georgia. The managers support and urge AID to favorably 
consider proposals by Fort Valley State University and the 
University of Louisville to participate in any absorptive 
capacity fund that may be established in the Republic of 
Georgia.
      The managers are aware that Armenia may be selected as 
the host site for Synchrotron Light Source Particle Accelerator 
project known as SESAME. The managers understand that the 
project will be used to advance regional interests in medicine, 
geology, industry, and electronics. In the event that the 
project is located in Armenia, the managers intend that 
$15,000,000 of the funds made available for Armenia should 
support this or a comparable project.
      The managers include bill language directing that 
$170,000,000 should be made available for Ukraine instead of 
$175,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. Of the amount for 
Ukraine, not less than $25,000,000 shall be provided for 
nuclear reactor safety programs. The managers have also 
included bill language directing that $5,000,000 should be 
provided for the Ukrainian Land and Resource Management Center.
      The conference agreement includes not less than 
$1,000,000 to increase analytical capacity in Ukraine in the 
area of healthcare and environmental health epidemiology, 
particularly concerning children with special needs and birth 
defects. This directive is based on the Senate amendment 
mandating funds to complete the ongoing study of the 
environmental causes of birth defects in Ukraine that is 
managed by the University of South Alabama. The conference 
agreement also includes not less than $3,250,000 for two 
regional initiatives, industrial sector management study tours 
conducted by Ohio's Center for Economic Initiatives and 
community telecommunications activities managed by the National 
Telephone Cooperative Association.
      The conference agreement includes conditions on 
assistance to the Government of the Russian Federation, with 
exceptions for specified humanitarian and security programs, 
with respect to its adherence in the Northern Caucasus to 
certain conventional arms and human rights conventions and 
agreements, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.
      The conference agreement provides that 60 percent of 
assistance to the Government of the Russian Federation would be 
withheld if the President is unable to certify to Congress that 
the Russian Government has terminated its ongoing cooperation 
with the Government of Iran with regard to certain nuclear and 
missile technology matters, and, with regard to Chechnya, is 
cooperating with international efforts to investigate 
allegations of war crimes and is in compliance with article V 
of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe.
      The managers reiterate language from the fiscal year 2000 
Statement of the Managers with regard to other limitations on 
assistance, ``that assistance to combat infectious diseases, * 
* * support for regional and municipal governments, and 
partnerships between United States hospitals, universities, 
judicial training institutions and environmental organizations 
and counterparts in Russia should not be affected by this 
section.''
      The conference agreement includes language providing not 
less than $20,000,00 for the Russian Far East. This matter was 
not addressed in the House bill. The managers recognize the 
successful entrepreneurship, management and democratization 
programs carried out during the past seven years in the Russian 
Far East by the University of Alaska's American-Russian Center. 
In addition to supporting continued University of Alaska 
programs in the Russian Far East, the managers direct that 
$3,000,000 be made available for a proposal by the University 
of Alaska to extend these efforts to Chukotka. In collaboration 
with Alaska Pacific University and two Alaska Native regional 
governments (the North Slope Borough and the Northwest Arctic 
Borough), the University of Alaska will provide training and 
technical assistance to strengthen Chukotka's economy, develop 
market driven systems, and improve social conditions, 
particularly for the indigenous peoples.
      The managers commend three programs in Russia that merit 
support from the ``Assistance for the Independent States of the 
Former Soviet Union'' account. The Replication of Lessons 
Learned (ROLL) program provides ongoing American support to 
help local Russian private volunteer organizations increase 
their management capacity to help solve pollution and related 
health problems, protect natural resources, and support 
economic growth. The managers urge that the ROLL and similar 
small grants programs that support women, children, and 
religious freedom be increased by at least 10 percent over 
current levels.
      In addition, the managers direct that not less than 
$250,000 should be provided to the Moscow School of Political 
Studies to support its successful efforts to teach democratic 
and free market principles to the emerging generation of 
Russia's political leaders and $400,000 be made available for 
the Cochran Fellowship Program to acquaint Russian farmers with 
American agricultural practices and to enhance U.S.-Russian 
trade and business relations. The Moscow School of Political 
Studies is making a concerted effort to teach democratic and 
free market principles to the emerging generation in Russia. It 
does this by conducting numerous seminars to expose young 
political leaders--of all parties, at both the federal and 
regional levels--to Western classical political and economic 
thought.
      The conference agreement also includes funds to support 
expansion of the Primary Healthcare Initiative in Ukraine, 
Georgia, and Russia of the World Council of Hellenes, and the 
United States-Russia Investment Fund, consistent with the 
funding levels specified in the House report. The managers 
commend the Fund for its promotion and development of a market 
economy in Russia and urge the State Department and AID 
allocate the maximum level practicable to the Fund in fiscal 
year 2001. The managers also support House language 
recommending the creation of a collaborative research program 
on issues of arms control verification for Russian and American 
scholars under the Expanded Threat Reduction Program. The 
managers also support and urge AID to favorably consider 
proposals to expand two existing programs: the Silk Road Seed 
Multiplication Program, based on the success of a similar 
program in Armenia; and the University of Arkansas Medical 
School-Volgograd Partnership program.
      The conference agreement does not reserve $6,000,000 from 
this account only for Mongolia, as proposed by the Senate. 
Language in the statement of the managers under the heading 
``Economic Support Fund'' addresses this matter.

                           Independent Agency

                              Peace Corps

      The conference agreement appropriates $265,000,000 
instead of $258,000,000 as proposed by the House and 
$244,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.

                          Department of State

          International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement

      The conference agreement appropriates $325,000,000 for 
International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement instead of 
$305,000,000 as proposed by the House and $220,000,000 proposed 
by the Senate.
      The conference agreement requires that all anti-crime 
programs be subject to the regular notification procedures of 
the Committees on Appropriations, as proposed by the House. The 
Senate did not address this matter.
      The conference agreement contains House language allowing 
the Department of State to utilize section 608 of the Foreign 
Assistance Act to receive excess property from other U.S. 
federal agencies for use in a foreign country. The Senate 
amendment did not address this matter.
      The managers endorse House report language regarding, and 
direct the State Department to favorably consider, Notre Dame 
University's program of human rights, democracy, and conflict 
resolution training in Colombia.
      The managers direct the Secretary of State to engage the 
government of Panama in good faith negotiations for the 
conclusion of an agreement which provides the U.S. military a 
forward operating location to support the use funds of under 
this heading.

                    Migration and Refugee Assistance

      The conference agreement appropriates $700,000,000, 
instead of $645,000,000 as proposed by the House and 
$615,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference 
agreement makes available $14,500,000, for administrative 
expenses, instead of $14,000,000 as proposed in the Senate 
amendment. The House proposed $14,852,000 for administrative 
expenses.
      The conference agreement also includes Senate language, 
not included in the House bill, that provides not less than 
$60,000,000 for refugees from the former Soviet Union and 
Eastern Europe and other refugees resettling in Israel.
      The conference agreement provides that funds appropriated 
under this heading to support activities and programs conducted 
by the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees shall be made 
available after reporting at least 5 days in advance to the 
Committees on Appropriations. This reporting requirement may be 
waived for any obligation if failure to do so would pose a 
substantial risk to human health or welfare. In the event that 
the waiver is exercised, a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations shall be provided as early as practicable, but 
in no event later than 5 days after such obligation.
      The managers support the efforts of the Department of 
State to remove anti-Semitic content in textbooks and curricula 
used in schools administered by the United Nations Relief and 
Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). 
The managers are concerned by reports that anti-Semitic, anti-
Israel rhetoric has been included in new Palestinian school 
textbooks. Accordingly, the managers direct the Secretary of 
State to report in writing to the Committees on Appropriations 
not later than February 1, 2001, on any such anti-Semitic, 
anti-Israel content in the new textbooks and on initiatives to 
redress such content in UNRWA schools.

     United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $15,000,000, as 
proposed by the Senate amendment. The House bill proposed 
$12,500,000.

    Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining and Related Programs

      The conference agreement appropriates $311,600,000 
instead of $241,600,000 as proposed by the House and 
$215,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      The managers intend that funds in this account be 
allocated as follows:

                        [In thousands of dollars]

Nonproliferation and Disarmament Fund...................         $15,000
Export control assistance...............................          19,100
International Atomic Energy Agency......................          47,000
CTBT Preparatory Commission.............................          21,500
Korean Peninsula Economic Development Organization 
    (KEDO)..............................................          55,000
Anti-terrorism assistance...............................          38,000
Terrorist Interdiction Program..........................           4,000
Demining................................................          40,000
Small arms destruction..................................           2,000
Science Centers.........................................          35,000
Lockerbie trial costs...................................          15,000
Nonproliferation contingency............................          20,000
                    --------------------------------------------------------
                    ____________________________________________________
      Total.............................................         311,600

      The conference agreement does not provide funds for a 
proposed Center for Antiterrorism and Security Training (CAST), 
both due to budget constraints and due to the fact that funding 
for domestic law enforcement training is not under the 
jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Foreign Operations, Export 
Financing, and Related Programs. Although the proposal for CAST 
includes training for foreign law enforcement purposes, the 
managers believe that these needs can be met by training at 
existing facilities and encourage the Department of State to 
coordinate with the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center 
(FLETC) and the Department of Justice. To the extent that other 
Federal entities were seeking to participate in the proposed 
training facility, such needs should be pursued through the 
proper subcommittees of jurisdiction.
      The managers intend that $5,000,000 of the funds 
allocated for export control assistance be made available for 
equipment for Malta to enable that country to monitor shipments 
transiting the Malta Freeport. This equipment will assist the 
Government of Malta in its efforts to prevent the transshipment 
of narcotics, weapons of mass destruction, and other illegal 
material through the Freeport. As evidence in the Lockerbie 
trial has illustrated, preventing such shipments is in the 
direct national security interest of the United States.
      In addition, the managers strongly support the allocation 
of up to $8,000,000 for export control activities along 
Jordan's borders with Iraq and Syria, including the procurement 
of mobile vans and trucks that are capable of monitoring 
shipments of goods into Jordan.
      The conference agreement includes House language that 
authorizes a contribution to the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban 
Treaty (CTBT) Preparatory Commission, and requires that the 
Secretary of State inform the Committees on Appropriations at 
least 20 days prior to the obligation of funds for such 
Commission. The conference agreement does not include Senate 
language on this matter. However, the managers endorse the 
Senate report language directing that a report be provided to 
the Committees on Appropriations on the anticipated use of 
funds made available to the Commission, including an 
identification of all donors and any directives or restrictions 
associated with their contribution; a detailed explanation of 
expenditures in 2000 and 2001, including sites where the United 
States has provided assistance to third party nations; and a 
copy of the Commission's 2001 budget.
      The conference agreement includes Senate language 
authorizing the use of funds for the destruction of small arms, 
and providing that $40,000,000 should be used for demining 
activities including not to exceed $500,000 for administrative 
expenses. The House bill did not address these matters.

                       Department of the Treasury

               International Affairs Technical Assistance

      The conference agreement includes $6,000,000 for the 
International Affairs Technical Assistance program of the 
Department of the Treasury instead of $5,000,000 as proposed by 
the Senate and $2,000,000 as proposed by the House.

                           Debt Restructuring

      The conference agreement appropriates $238,000,000 for 
debt restructuring as proposed by the House instead of 
$75,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The managers include not 
less than $13,000,000 only for implementation of title V of the 
Foreign Assistance Act. The remainder of the amount provided 
for debt restructuring may be used at the Administration's 
discretion, subject to certain reporting and notification 
requirements, either for bilateral debt restructuring or for 
United States contributions to the Heavily Indebted Poor 
Country (HIPC) Trust Fund administered by the World Bank.
      The conference agreement includes language that countries 
benefiting from U.S. contributions to the HIPC Trust Fund agree 
not to accept additional market-rate loans during a ``time out 
on new debt'' moratorium. The moratorium for 24 months, instead 
of 30 months as proposed by the House, would apply only to new 
lending from MDBs whose bad loans to the beneficiary poor 
country are being paid off by the HIPC Trust Fund.
      The managers have not included a House provision that 
would have established a similar moratorium for 9 months with 
regard to concessional or ``soft'' loans. The managers have 
included bill language requiring that the Secretary of the 
Treasury include a listing of all concessional loans that are 
under consideration by multilateral development banks for each 
HIPC beneficiary country. The extent and amount of proposed new 
debt will be a factor as the Committees consult with Treasury 
regarding the specific use of funds provided for forgiveness of 
old debt. The managers agree with the policy with regard to 
HIPC, issued by the Development Committee of the IMF and World 
Bank at recent meetings in Prague, that: ``further restraint on 
concessional lending may also be warranted, including through 
greater recourse to grant financing.'' The matter of new 
concessional lending to HIPC beneficiaries is addressed in bill 
language under the heading ``Contribution to the International 
Development Association (IDA)''.
      The conferees encourage all bilateral creditors to 
provide debt reduction to heavily indebted poor countries and 
that special consideration be given to the unique circumstances 
of selected bilateral creditors such as Costa Rica.
      The managers have also included language proposed by the 
House that prohibits U.S. payments to the HIPC Trust Fund for 
certain countries. The limitation affects any country credibly 
reported to be engaged in a pattern of gross violations of 
internationally recognized human rights or to be engaged in a 
war or civil conflict that undermines its ability to comply 
with HIPC conditions. The Senate amendment did not address 
these matters.
      The conferees have included a provision that requires the 
Secretary of the Treasury to consult with the Committees on 
Appropriations concerning which countries and international 
financial institutions are expected to benefit from a United 
States contribution to the HIPC Trust Fund administered by the 
World Bank during the fiscal year, and to inform the Committees 
not less than fifteen days in advance of the signature of an 
agreement by the United States to make payments to the HIPC 
Trust Fund of amounts for such countries and institutions. It 
is the understanding of the conferees that the Secretary of the 
Treasury will update the list of countries and institutions if 
new countries or institutions are expected to benefit from U.S. 
contributions to the HIPC Trust Fund during the fiscal year, 
and that such updating will be provided in advance of informing 
the Committees of the proposed signature of an agreement to 
make payments to the HIPC Trust Fund with respect to any such 
new country or institution.
      The conference agreement further requires full 
documentation of any commitment by a HIPC beneficiary country 
regarding redirection of domestic resources to additional 
poverty alleviation and economic growth measures, as proposed 
by the House. The Committees will closely monitor the 
implementation of such commitments, taking into account the 
findings of the Department of the Treasury, religious groups 
that have advocated the HIPC initiative and knowledgeable non-
governmental organizations.

                     TITLE III--MILITARY ASSISTANCE

             International Military Education and Training

      The conference agreement appropriates $55,000,000 as 
proposed by the Senate instead of $47,250,000 as proposed by 
the House. The conference agreement also contains House 
language not in the Senate amendment that provides that up to 
$1,000,000 may be available until expended.
      The conference agreement includes House language that 
provides that Expanded International Military Education and 
Training (E-IMET) for Indonesia is subject to notification, and 
Senate language that provides that Expanded IMET for Guatemala 
is subject to notification.
      The conference agreement does not include House language 
that conditioned funding for the School of the Americas upon 
certifications by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of 
State, or that imposed certain reporting requirements. The 
Senate amendment did not address these matters. The managers 
note that the relevant authorizing committees are addressing 
the future status of the School of the Americas as part of H.R. 
4205, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 
2001.
      As part of the increase in funding for this account, the 
managers would support increasing the allocation for Malta from 
$100,000 to $200,000 for fiscal year 2001 in order to support 
that country's needs for the professional training of its armed 
forces.
      The managers support and urge the Departments of State 
and Defense to favorably consider $150,000 from this account 
for development for a peacekeeping initiative at the Naval 
Postgraduate School. This education program would focus on the 
creation of a security environment within which economic and 
political development can accelerate, thereby facilitating the 
withdrawal of United States and/or other peacekeeping forces. 
The program would eventually provide foreign civilians and 
military personnel with the specialized expertise, problem-
solving skills and management tools to conduct peacekeeping 
operations that have an exit strategy.

                   Foreign Military Financing Program

      The conference agreement appropriates $3,545,000,000 
instead of $3,519,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and 
$3,268,000,000 as proposed by the House.
      The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
provides not less than $1,980,000,000 for grants for Israel and 
not less than $1,300,000,000 for grants for Egypt, instead of 
not to exceed those sums as proposed by the House. The 
conference agreement also includes language that provides that 
not less than $520,000,000 shall be available for procurement 
in Israel of defense goods and services. The House and Senate 
had similar language on this matter, but the House bill would 
not have mandated this level.
      The conference agreement deletes House language 
expressing the Sense of Congress on the proposed Phalcon sale 
by Israel to China. The managers commend the decision by the 
Government of Israel to cancel the sale in view of the threat 
posed to United States national security interests.
      The conference agreement includes language that provides 
that not less than $75,000,000 should be made available for 
assistance for Jordan. The Senate amendment would have mandated 
this level of assistance. The House bill did not address this 
matter.
      The conference agreement includes language similar to 
that in the Senate amendment regarding an interest bearing 
account for Egypt, except that the requirement for a 
notification is replaced by language that requires that the 
Committees on Appropriations be informed at least 10 days prior 
to the obligation of funds earned on the interest from funds 
deposited in said account. The House bill would have allowed 
for the early disbursal of fiscal year 2001 outlays for Egypt.
      The conference agreement includes not less than 
$8,500,000 for Tunisia, of which not less than $5,000,000 shall 
be from drawdowns of defense articles, services, and education 
and training. The Senate amendment provided $10,000,000 and 
$4,000,000, respectively, for these activities. The House bill 
did not address this matter.
      The conference agreement provides that not less than 
$8,000,000 shall be provided for Georgia, of which not less 
than $4,000,000 shall be from drawdowns of defense articles, 
services, and education and training. The Senate amendment 
mandated $12,000,000 and $5,000,000, respectively, for these 
activities. The House bill did not address this matter. The 
conference agreement also includes language that allocates 
$3,000,000 in grant funds for Malta.
      The conference agreement does not include Senate language 
that would have authorized the transfer by Turkey to Georgia of 
not to exceed $10,000,000 in defense articles sold by the 
United States to Turkey. The House bill did not address this 
matter.
      The conference agreement provides for a limitation of 
$33,000,000 for administrative expenses as proposed by the 
Senate, rather than $30,495,000 as proposed by the House. It 
also includes House language that provides that no Partnership 
for Peace funds may be made available to a non-NATO country 
except through the regular notification procedures of the 
Committees on Appropriations.

                        Peacekeeping Operations

      The conference agreement appropriates $127,000,000 
instead of $117,900,000 as proposed by the House and 
$85,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      The managers urge the State Department to provide support 
to the Special War Crimes Court for Sierra Leone, to bring to 
justice those responsible for the mutilation and slaughter of 
innocent people there.

               TITLE IV--MULTILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  International Financial Institutions

                   Global Environment Facility (GEF)

      The conference agreement appropriates $108,000,000 for 
the Global Environment Facility instead of $50,000,000 as 
proposed by the Senate and $35,800,000 as proposed by the 
House.

       Contribution to the International Development Association

      The conference agreement appropriates $775,000,000 
instead of $750,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and 
$566,600,000 as proposed by the House.
      The managers have agreed to language, similar to that 
proposed by the House, regarding the provision of grant 
assistance by the International Development Association to HIPC 
beneficiaries. The managers endorse Senate report language 
concerning the need for further reform of procedures to address 
employee grievances at the World Bank, IMF, and other financial 
institutions.

      Contribution to the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency

      The conference agreement appropriates $10,000,000 for 
paid-in capital issued by the Multilateral Investment Guarantee 
Agency, instead of $4,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and 
$4,900,000 as proposed by the House. Approval for subscription 
to the appropriate amount of callable capital is also included 
in the conference agreement.

       Contribution to the Inter-American Investment Corporation

      The conference agreement appropriates $25,000,000 for the 
United States contribution to the Inter-American Investment 
Corporation, instead of $10,000,000 as proposed by the Senate 
and $8,000,000 as proposed by the House.

Contribution to the Enterprise for the Americas Multilateral Investment 
                                  Fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $10,000,000 for the 
United States contribution to the Multilateral Investment Fund 
(MIF) at the Inter-American Development Bank, as proposed by 
the House. The Senate did not address this matter.
      The MIF was intended to be a cutting-edge instrument for 
expanding the private sector's contribution to growth in Latin 
America. The managers request the Secretary of the Treasury to 
prepare and submit to the Committees by April 6, 2001, an in-
depth report on the MIF prepared by private sector 
entrepreneurs from the U.S. and Latin America. The report 
should evaluate the portfolio of the MIF with respect to 
private sector growth, including, but not limited to, the 
status of project execution and value added, and include 
strategic recommendations for achieving greater impact and 
expediting project selection and approval.

               Contribution to the Asian Development Fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $72,000,000 for the 
Asian Development Fund, as proposed by the House, instead of 
$100,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.

              Contribution to the African Development Bank

      The conference agreement appropriates $6,100,000 for 
paid-in capital issued by the African Development Bank as 
proposed by the Senate, instead of $3,100,000 as proposed by 
the House. Approval for subscription to the appropriate amount 
of callable capital is also included in the conference 
agreement.

              Contribution to the African Development Fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $100,000,000 for 
the African Development Fund instead of $72,000,000, as 
proposed by the House and the Senate.

  Contribution to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development

      The conference agreement appropriates $35,778,717 for the 
European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, as proposed 
by the House, instead of $35,779,000, as proposed by the 
Senate. Approval for subscription to the appropriate amount of 
callable capital is also included in the conference agreement.

            International Fund for Agricultural Development

      The conference agreement appropriates $5,000,000 for the 
International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), as 
proposed by the House. The Senate included a total of 
$5,000,000 for IFAD within the ``International Organizations 
and Programs'' and ``Development Assistance'' accounts.

                International Organizations and Programs

      The conference agreement provides $186,000,000, instead 
of $183,000,000 as proposed by the House and $288,000,000 as 
proposed by Senate. The final appropriation level does not 
include $110,000,000 provided for UNICEF, and up to $50,000,000 
for the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), 
which are included under the ``Child Survival and Disease 
Programs Fund'' account and $2,500,000 for IFAD, which is 
included under the prior heading.
      The conference agreement continues current law indicating 
that $5,000,000 should be made available for the World Food 
Program, as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment 
included similar language.
      The managers support $5,000,000 from this account for the 
United States contribution to the United Nations Voluntary Fund 
for Victims of Torture Program, as recommended in the Senate 
Report, and $90,000,000 for the United Nations Development 
Program, as recommended in the House Report.

                      TITLE V--GENERAL PROVISIONS

      (Note: If House and Senate language is identical except 
for a different section number or minor technical differences, 
the section is not discussed in the Statement of Managers.)
Sec. 505. Limitation on Representational Allowances
      This section retains reference to the Inter-American 
Foundation as proposed by the House and as contained in current 
law. The Senate amendment proposed deleting this reference.
Sec. 508. Military Coups
      The conference agreement includes House language that 
specifies that funds shall be prohibited for any country whose 
duly elected head of government is deposed by decree or 
military coup. The Senate amendment included similar language.
Sec. 510. Deobligation/Reobligation Authority
      The conference agreement deletes Senate language that 
would have authorized deobligation/reobligation authority for 
funds that are certified pursuant to section 1311 of the 
Supplemental Appropriations Act, 1955.
Sec. 511. Availability of Funds
      The conference agreement deletes House language that 
provided that the final proviso under title VI of the fiscal 
year 2000 appropriations Act for foreign operations, export 
financing, and related programs shall be null and void. Similar 
language is already contained in Public Law 106-52.
Sec. 512. Limitation on Assistance to Countries in Default
      The conference agreement is the same as current law, as 
proposed by the House. The Senate proposed to restrict the 
limitation to a defaulting government instead of a defaulting 
country.
Sec. 515. Notification Requirements
      The conference agreement is the same as current law. The 
Senate proposed a technical change.
Sec. 517. Independent States of the Former Soviet Union
      The conference agreement is the same as current law, 
except that the special notification requirement applies to 
Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, and Georgia only. The House bill 
deleted a current provision relating to territorial integrity 
and required special notification for Russia and Ukraine only. 
The Senate amendment was essentially the same as current law.
Sec. 520. Special Notification Requirements
      The conference agreement adds ``Ethiopia'', ``Eritrea'', 
and ``Zimbabwe'' as proposed by the House bill and retains 
``Pakistan'' as proposed by the Senate amendment, to the list 
of countries subject to the special notification procedures of 
this section. The managers are encouraged that on June 8, 2000, 
a cease-fire agreement was signed by Ethiopia and Eritrea and 
that efforts are underway to reach a permanent settlement of 
the border conflict.
Sec. 522. Child Survival and Disease Prevention Activities
      The conference agreement authorizes AID to use 
$16,000,000 from the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs 
Fund'' for technical experts from other government agencies, 
universities, and other institutions. The Senate proposed 
$10,000,000 and the House $10,500,000 for this purpose. The 
managers have increased this authority on an interim basis in 
order to accelerate implementation of the expanded HIV/AIDS and 
tuberculosis activities. AID is directed to replace the 
additional temporary personnel as rapidly as possible with AID 
direct hire OE-funded personnel. As the purpose of the general 
provision is to support effective implementation of the Child 
Survival and Disease Programs Fund, the conference agreement 
does not include a reference to family planning, as proposed by 
the Senate.
Sec. 525. Authorization Requirement
      The conference agreement includes language that provides 
that funds appropriated by this Act may be obligated and 
expended notwithstanding section 10 of Public Law 91-672 and 
section 15 of the State Department Basic Authorities Act of 
1956, as provided in the House bill and the Senate amendment. 
However, it includes new language exempting the accounts 
``International Military Education and Training'' and ``Foreign 
Military Financing Program'' from these waivers. Authorizations 
of appropriations for these accounts have been enacted into law 
as part of Public Law 106-280.
Sec. 526. Democracy in China
      The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
authorizes the use of funds from the account ``Economic Support 
Fund'' for the support of nongovernmental organizations located 
outside of China to foster democracy and rule of law. The House 
bill only authorized funds to foster democracy.
      The conference agreement includes language that allows 
funds from this Act or from prior acts making appropriations 
for Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs, 
that are made available for the National Endowment for 
Democracy (NED) to be made available notwithstanding any other 
provision of law or regulation. The purpose of this language is 
to allow for the expeditious and orderly obligation of funds 
through the Endowment for support of nongovernmental 
organizations overseas. This provision would become effective 
upon enactment. The House bill and the Senate amendment 
contained language that would have made funds for NED available 
consistent with certain decisions of the Comptroller General 
and in accordance with Office of Management and Budget Circular 
A-122.
      The conference agreement includes language that 
authorizes, notwithstanding any other provision of law, not to 
exceed $2,000,000 from the Economic Support Fund to support 
certain activities in Tibetan communities. The House bill 
contained similar language; the Senate amendment did not 
address this matter.
      The conference agreement also contains House language 
that amends current law to make available $1,000,000 in 
previously appropriated funds for the Jamestown Foundation for 
a project to disseminate information and support research about 
the People's Republic of China. The Senate amendment did not 
address this matter.
Sec. 528. Report on the Implementation of Supplemental Appropriations
      The conference agreement includes House language that 
requires four quarterly reports on the use of funds 
appropriated under title VI of the fiscal year 2000 
appropriations Act for foreign operations, export financing, 
and related programs. The Senate amendment did not address this 
matter.
Sec. 530. Peru
      The conference agreement includes language requiring the 
Secretary of State to determine and report to the Committees on 
Appropriations regarding progress toward elections and 
improvements in democracy and rule of law. The Senate amendment 
contained a similar provision. The House bill did not address 
this matter. The managers direct the Secretary of State to 
submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations not later 
than 30 days after the date of enactment of this Act, 
evaluating United States, political, economic, and military 
relations with Peru in accordance with P.L. 106-186.
Sec. 535. Authorities for the Peace Corps, International Fund for 
        Agricultural Development, Inter-American Foundation, and 
        African Development Foundation
      The conference agreement maintains current law as 
proposed by the House. The Senate amendment proposed deleting 
the reference to the Inter-American Foundation.
Sec. 537. Clean Coal Technology
      The conference agreement includes Senate language 
encouraging the use of clean coal technology in environmental 
and energy infrastructure programs, projects and activities. In 
addition, the managers encourage the Secretary of the Treasury, 
Secretary of State, Secretary of Energy and Administrator of 
the Agency for International Development to promote the use of 
other clean and renewable energy technologies. The House bill 
did not address this matter.
Sec. 538. Special Authorities
      The conference agreement deletes prior year language 
proposed by the Senate that exempts humanitarian assistance for 
Romania and the peoples of Kosova from any other provision of 
law. This language is no longer necessary. The conference 
agreement also includes House language that adds ``Economic 
Support Fund'' to the list of accounts under which certain 
activities may be undertaken notwithstanding any other 
provision of law.
      The managers have expanded authority in current law 
regarding AID's use of personal services contractors in 
Washington so that additional bureaus and offices within AID 
may utilize, on a temporary basis, such contractors. This 
authority is intended to allow AID to meet relatively short-
term requirements for technical and management personnel in 
limited situations where natural disasters, recent foreign 
policy decisions, or other unforeseen events result in rapid 
increases in assistance levels and where other options, such as 
the use of existing staff or hiring and training of new staff, 
cannot be implemented quickly or effectively to meet the 
unforeseen management needs. Other than under exceptional 
circumstances, this authority should not be used to satisfy 
requirements with durations greater than two years. The Bureau 
of Management is directed to report to the Committees not later 
than December 15, 2000, and March 15, 2001, on the use of 
personal service contractors under this and other authorities.
Sec. 539. Policy on Terminating the Arab League Boycott of Israel and 
        Normalizing Relations with Israel
      The conference agreement includes House language on this 
matter. The Senate amendment did not include subsections (2) 
and (3) of the House general provision, dealing with the 
decision by the Arab League to reinstate the boycott of Israel 
in 1997, and calling on the League to immediately rescind its 
decision; and deleted language from subsection (4)(C) regarding 
a report on the specific steps that should be taken by the 
President to ``expand the process of normalizing ties between 
Arab League countries and Israel''.
Sec. 540. Administration of Justice Activities
      The conference agreement contains language identical to 
current law, but changes the name of this section, as proposed 
by the House bill. The Senate amendment proposed repeal of 
parts of section 534 of the Foreign Assistance Act.
Sec. 541. Eligibility for Assistance
      The conference agreement includes language regarding 
eligibility of assistance provided under this Act as proposed 
by the House bill. The conference agreement does not include a 
modification, as proposed in the Senate amendment, regarding 
the prohibition on assistance to countries that violate 
internationally recognized human rights.
Sec. 543. Ceilings and Earmarks
      The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
restores prior year language regarding earmarks and minimum 
funding levels. The House bill did not address this matter.
Sec. 552. War Crimes Tribunals Drawdown
      The conference agreement includes language proposed by 
the Senate that provides a sunset date of September 30, 2001, 
for certain reports required of the Secretary of State under 
this section.
Sec. 555. Prohibitions on Payment of Certain Expenses
      The conference agreement includes language identical to 
current law, as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment 
deleted references to the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs 
Fund''.
Sec. 558. Assistance for Haiti
      The conference agreement includes language similar to 
that proposed by the House which prohibits additional 
assistance to the central government of Haiti until the 
Committees on Appropriations are in receipt of reports 
regarding free and fair elections and regarding Haitian 
government cooperation in illicit drug trafficking. The Senate 
amendment placed conditions on aid to Haiti regarding free and 
fair elections, but did not address illicit drug trafficking. 
The managers do not intend that assistance to combat infectious 
diseases, child survival, support for regional and municipal 
governments, and partnerships between United States hospitals, 
universities, non-governmental organizations and counterparts 
in Haiti would be affected by this section.
Sec. 559. Requirement for Disclosure of Foreign Aid in Report of 
        Secretary of State
      The conference agreement includes language proposed by 
the Senate that makes a technical modification to current law.
Sec. 561. Haiti Coast Guard
      The conference agreement includes language proposed in 
the House bill regarding the purchase of defense goods and 
articles by Haiti for its Coast Guard. The Senate amendment 
proposed allowing the Haitian National Police to be eligible to 
purchase these items.
Sec. 564. Restrictions on Assistance to Countries Providing Sanctuary 
        to Indicted War Criminals
      The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
adds assistance for refugees and internally displaced persons 
to the exemptions to the sanctions of this section, and Senate 
language regarding communities in which an indicted war 
criminal is residing.
Sec. 565. Discrimination Against Minority Religious Faiths in the 
        Russian Federation
      The conference agreement changes the title of this 
section, as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House bill 
proposed the title, ``To Prohibit Foreign Assistance to the 
Government of the Russian Federation Should It Enact Laws Which 
Would Discriminate Against Minority Religious Faiths in the 
Russian Federation''.
Sec. 568. Assistance for the Middle East
      The conference agreement contains language similar to the 
House bill that imposes a spending ceiling of $5,241,150,000 on 
specified assistance for the Middle East. The Senate amendment 
did not address this matter.
Sec. 571. Foreign Military Training Report
      The conference agreement includes House language 
requiring a joint report by the Secretary of State and the 
Secretary of Defense on all overseas military training 
(excluding military sales) provided to non-NATO foreign 
military personnel under programs administered by the 
Departments of Defense and State during 2000 and 2001, 
including those proposed for 2001. The language specifies the 
scope of the report, and allows for a classified annex, if 
deemed necessary and appropriate. The report shall be due no 
later than March 1, 2001. The Senate amendment did not address 
this matter.
Sec. 572. Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization
      The conference agreement includes House language on this 
matter, except that the ceiling on funding for the Korean 
Peninsula Economic Development Organization (KEDO) is 
$55,000,000 rather than $35,000,000 as in the House bill and 
the Senate amendment. The House language conditions funding for 
KEDO on a certification that (1) the parties to the Agreed 
Framework have taken and continue to take demonstrable steps to 
implement the Joint Declaration on Denuclearization of Korea; 
(2) the parties have taken and continue to take demonstrable 
steps to pursue the North-South dialogue; (3) North Korea is 
complying with all provisions of the Agreed Framework; (4) 
North Korea has not significantly diverted assistance for 
purposes for which it was not intended; (5) there is no 
credible evidence North Korea is seeking to develop or acquire 
the capability to enrich uranium, or any additional capability 
to reprocess spent nuclear fuel; (6) North Korea is complying 
with its obligations regarding access to suspect underground 
construction; (7) there is no credible evidence North Korea is 
engaged in a nuclear weapons program, including efforts to 
acquire, develop, test, produce, or deploy such weapons, and 
(8) the United States is continuing to make significant 
progress on eliminating the North Korean ballistic missile 
threat, including further missile tests and its ballistic 
missile exports.
      The language allows for the President to waive the 
certification requirements of this section if he determines 
that it is vital to the national security interests of the 
United States, 30 days after a written submission to the 
appropriate congressional committees. It also requires a report 
from the Secretary of State on the fiscal year 2002 budget 
request for KEDO, with certain specified information to be 
included in such report.
      The Senate amendment contained similar language.
Sec. 573. African Development Foundation
      The conference agreement provides that funds to grantees 
of the Foundation may be invested pending expenditure and that 
interest earned must be used for the same purpose for which the 
grant was made. Further, this section allows the Foundation's 
board of directors, in exceptional circumstances, to waive the 
existing $250,000 project limitation, subject to reporting to 
the Committees on Appropriations.
Sec. 575. Iraq Opposition
      The conference agreement contains language similar to 
that contained in title II of the Senate amendment specifying 
that not less than $25,000,000 from the account ``Economic 
Support Fund'' shall be made available for programs benefiting 
the Iraqi people, including not less than $12,000,000 which 
should be provided for certain specified humanitarian 
assistance, and not less than $6,000,000 which should be 
provided to the Iraq National Congress Support Foundation or 
the Iraqi National Congress for radio and television 
broadcasting inside Iraq. It also states that the President 
should submit a plan within 60 days of enactment regarding the 
use of the funds recommended in this section. The House bill 
did not address this matter.
      The managers strongly support assistance for Kurdish 
Human Rights Watch for its programs to provide humanitarian 
assistance to the Kurdish people in northern Iraq.
      The conference agreement also includes language similar 
to that in the House bill that provides authority to use funds 
to support efforts to bring about political transition in Iraq, 
to be made available only to Iraqi opposition groups designated 
under the Iraq Liberation Act, and not to exceed $2,000,000 to 
be made available for groups and activities seeking the 
prosecution of Saddam Hussein and other Iraqi officials for war 
crimes. No funds may be made available for administrative costs 
of the Department of State. The Senate amendment did not 
address this matter.
Sec. 576. Agency for International Development Budget Justification
      The conference agreement instructs the Agency for 
International Development to submit its 2002 budget in a 
transparent and simplified format more useful to the 
Committees, as proposed by the House. In particular, the budget 
justification document should prominently display data and 
narratives aggregating resources obligated or requested for all 
Agency-managed programs and activities that are traditionally 
of special interest to Congress and the Executive branch. The 
Senate did not address this matter.
Sec. 577. Kyoto Protocol
      The conference agreement prohibits funds in this Act to 
be used to propose or issue rules, regulations, decrees, or 
orders for the purpose of implementation, or preparation for 
implementation of the Kyoto Protocol, as proposed by the 
Senate.
Sec. 579. Indonesia
      The conference agreement provision regarding military 
assistance to Indonesia is similar to current law. The House 
bill and the Senate amendment included identical conditions 
under which a Presidential report and determination could 
result in a resumption of military assistance to Indonesia that 
is funded in this bill. The restrictions on assistance include 
both IMET and Foreign Military Financing programs, instead of 
FMF only, as proposed by the House bill.
      The managers are concerned about the more than 100,000 
East Timorese refugees still trapped in West Timor. This severe 
humanitarian situation has been exacerbated by ongoing 
harassment of aid workers by armed gangs, and recurring border 
incursions into East Timor by West Timor-based militias. These 
attacks have resulted in the deaths of several UN aid workers, 
as well as refugees. The managers strongly urge the Secretaries 
of Defense and State to press the government of Indonesia to 
fulfill its commitments to disarm and disband militia groups, 
end military and financial support for these groups, and bring 
militia leaders to justice. The managers note that, as provided 
in this section, resumption of security assistance to Indonesia 
is conditioned, in part, on the armed forces of Indonesia 
providing safe passage to refugees returning from West Timor.
Sec. 580. Man and the Biosphere
      The conference agreement prohibits funds for the United 
Nations Man in the Biosphere Program and the World Heritage 
Fund, as proposed by the House bill. The Senate did not address 
this matter.
Sec. 581. Taiwan Reporting Requirement
      The conference agreement includes language that requires 
that not less than 30 days prior to the next round of arms 
talks between the United States and Taiwan, the President shall 
consult, on a classified basis, with appropriate Congressional 
leaders and committee chairman and ranking members regarding 
the following matters: (1) Taiwan's requests for purchase of 
defense articles and defense services during the pending round 
of arms talks; (2) the Administration's assessment of the 
legitimate defense needs of Taiwan in light of those requests; 
and (3) the decision-making process used by the Executive 
Branch to consider those requests. The House bill and the 
Senate amendment contained language requiring the Secretary of 
State to consult with the appropriate committees and leadership 
of Congress to devise a mechanism to provide for Congressional 
input prior to making any determination on the sale or transfer 
of defense articles and services to Taiwan.
Sec. 582. Restriction on United States Assistance for Certain 
        Reconstruction Efforts in Central Europe
      The conference agreement contains House language that 
provides that to the maximum extent possible, assistance to 
Eastern Europe and the Baltic States should be used for the 
procurement of American goods and services. The Senate 
amendment did not address this matter.
Sec. 583. Restrictions on Assistance to Governments Destabilizing 
        Sierra Leone
      The conference agreement prohibits assistance to any 
government for which the Secretary of State has credible 
evidence that such government has, within the previous six 
months, provided military support or which has assisted illicit 
diamond trading which benefits the Revolutionary United Front 
in Sierra Leone. This section is identical to the House bill. 
The Senate amendment did not address this matter.
Sec. 584. Voluntary Separation Incentives
      The conference agreement provides for the payment of 
voluntary separation incentives to AID employees for the 
purpose of eliminating positions and functions at AID, as 
proposed by the House bill and the Senate amendment.
Sec. 585. Contributions to the United Nations Population Fund
      As proposed by the House bill, the conference agreement 
provides that not more than $25,000,000 from the 
``International Organizations and Programs'' account shall be 
made available for the United Nations Fund for Population 
Activities. This assistance is subject to a number of 
conditions regarding UNFPA activities. The Senate amendment 
contained a similar provision.
Sec. 586. Indochinese Parolees
      The conference agreement includes language similar to the 
Senate amendment which provides authority for the Attorney 
General to adjust the status of certain Indochinese parolees to 
lawful permanent residence. The House bill did not address this 
matter.
      The purpose of this provision is to address an anomaly in 
current law, which requires that such persons have first been 
denied refugee status in order to be eligible to adjust status. 
Since these individuals were paroled into the United States as 
part of U.S. government programs at a time when their 
eligibility for refugee status was never considered, the 
managers believe that this provision is both necessary and 
appropriate. The provision is limited in scope to apply only to 
parolees who are natives or citizens of Vietnam, Laos or 
Cambodia, who were inspected and paroled into the United States 
prior to October 1, 1997, and who are otherwise eligible to 
receive an immigrant visa. The managers note that the potential 
beneficiaries of this provision are a fixed number of 
individuals who were lawfully admitted into the United States. 
While the conference agreement includes a ceiling on the number 
of aliens who may benefit from this provision, the managers 
recognize that it is difficult to determine precisely the 
number of potential beneficiaries and that such number may need 
to be revised in the future to ensure that no eligible alien is 
arbitrarily denied adjustment of status.
Sec. 587. American Churchwomen in El Salvador
      The conference agreement includes language regarding the 
murder of four American churchwomen in El Salvador, as proposed 
in the House bill. The Senate amendment did not address this 
matter.
Sec. 588. Procurement and Financial Management Reform
      The conference agreement includes a Senate provision 
withholding 10 percent of the funds made available for 
international financial institutions until the Secretary of the 
Treasury certifies that a number of procurement and financial 
management reforms are being implemented. The House bill 
included a similar provision, adding a requirement relating to 
funding of third-party procurement monitoring. The conference 
agreement includes a provision that requires that, prior to 
disbursement of the final 10 percent of the United States 
portion or payment to an international financial institution as 
defined in section 588, the Secretary of the Treasury certify, 
inter alia, that the institution is taking steps to establish 
an independent fraud and corruption investigative organization 
or office or an equivalent mechanism.
      The managers agree that, for purposes of this provision, 
an investigatory organization, office, or equivalent 
investigatory mechanism will be considered ``independent,'' 
notwithstanding the fact that it is part of the international 
financial institution, if it is autonomous from the 
institution's procurement process and the office or individual 
being investigated and reports directly to the head of the 
institution or his designee, so long as such designee has no 
operational or supervisory responsibilities for the subject of 
the investigation.
Sec. 589. Commercial Leasing of Defense Articles
      The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
authorizes commercial leasing rather than sales of defense 
articles for certain specified countries under certain 
conditions. The House bill did not address this matter.
Sec. 590. Foreign Military Expenditures Report
      The conference agreement repeals section 511(b) of 1993 
Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related 
Appropriations Act regarding matters to be included in the 
annual human rights report to Congress by the Secretary of 
State, as proposed by the Senate. The House bill did not 
address this matter.
      The managers request that the Secretary of the Treasury 
submit a one-time report to the Committees on Appropriations 
which describes steps being taken to implement section 576 of 
the 1997 Act and section 1502(b) of title XV of the 
International Financial Institutions Act, both of which address 
appropriate levels of military expenditures by countries in 
receipt of loans or credits from MDBs. The report shall 
identify, among other things--(1) the countries found not to be 
in compliance with the provisions of section 576 and instances 
where the United States Executive Director has voted to oppose 
a loan as a result of that section; (2) steps taken by the 
governments of countries to establish the reporting systems 
addressed in section 576; (3) any instances in which such 
governments have failed to provide information requested by an 
international financial institution (IFI); and (4) any policy 
changes that have been made by the IFIs with regard to 
providing loans or credits to countries that expend a 
significant portion of their financial resources for their 
armed and security forces. The Senate included this report in 
bill language. The House did not address the matter.
Sec. 591. Abolition of the Inter-American Foundation
      The conference agreement provides authority for the 
President to abolish the Inter-American Foundation and 
terminate its functions, as proposed by the Senate amendment. 
The House bill did not address this matter.
Sec. 592. Repeal of Requirement for Annual GAO Report on the Financial 
        Operations of the International Monetary Fund
      The conference agreement repeals existing law regarding 
an annual General Accounting Office report of the financial 
operations of the International Monetary Fund. The House bill 
did not address this matter.
Sec. 593. Extension of GAO Authorities
      The conference agreement provides that funds made 
available to the General Accounting Office from fiscal year 
1999 emergency supplemental appropriations for disaster relief 
in Central America and the Caribbean shall remain available 
until expended. This section is identical to the Senate 
amendment. The House bill did not address this matter.
Sec. 594. Funding for Serbia
      The conference agreement includes language that 
authorizes up to $100,000,000 for assistance for Serbia, 
subject to certain conditions that become effective after March 
31, 2001. Funds obligated prior to that date would not be 
subject to these conditions.
      The conditions include a determination and certification 
that the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) 
is--
            (1) cooperating with the International Criminal 
        Tribunal for Yugoslavia including access for 
        investigators, the provision of documents, and the 
        surrender and transfer of indictees or assistance in 
        their apprehension;
            (2) taking steps that are consistent with the 
        Dayton Accords to end Serbian financial, political, 
        security, and other support which has served to 
        maintain separate Republika Srpska institutions; and
            (3) taking steps to implement policies which 
        reflect a respect for minority rights and the rule of 
        law.
      In addition, after March 31, 2001, the language provides 
that the Secretary of the Treasury should instruct the United 
States executive directors to international financial 
institutions to support loans and assistance to the Government 
of the FRY subject to these same conditions.
      The conditions described above do not apply to 
Montenegro, Kosova, humanitarian assistance, or assistance to 
promote democracy in municipalities.
      The language also provides that the Secretary of State 
should instruct United States representatives to regional and 
international organizations to support membership for the 
Government of the FRY subject to a determination by the 
President to the Committees on Appropriations that the FRY has 
applied for membership on the same basis as the other successor 
states to the FRY and has taken appropriate steps to resolve 
issues related to state liabilities, assets, and property.
      The House bill (in section 537) and the Senate amendment 
would have prohibited assistance for Serbia, except for aid to 
Kosova or Montenegro or to promote democracy.
Sec. 595. Forest Initiative
      The conference agreement includes a provision providing 
for an exchange of federal lands and an audit of a public 
enterprise. This matter was not addressed in the House bill or 
the Senate amendment.
Sec. 596. User Fees
      The conference agreement includes a provision which 
requires the United States Executive Directors at all 
multilateral development banks and the International Monetary 
Fund to oppose any loan which requires user fees or service 
charges on poor people for primary education or primary health 
care. The managers further agree that user fees should not be 
imposed or required through Bank or Fund sponsored ``community 
financing,'' ``cost sharing,'' or ``cost recovery'' mechanisms 
prepared in conjunctions with loans, structural adjustment 
schemes or debt relief actions.
      The managers direct that the Committees on Appropriations 
be notified within 10 days if any loans, community financing, 
cost sharing, or cost recovery mechanisms requiring the 
imposition of user fees are approved by any multilateral 
development bank or the International Monetary Fund.
Sec. 597. Basic Education Assistance for Pakistan
      The conference agreement includes a new provision 
allowing development assistance or Economic Support Funds to be 
used for basic education programs in Pakistan, notwithstanding 
any provision of law that restricts assistance to foreign 
countries. Any such assistance would be subject to the regular 
notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations.
Sec. 598. Family Planning
      The conference agreement provides a ceiling of 
$425,000,000 for population planning activities or other 
population assistance but prohibits any of such funds from 
being obligated or expended until February 15, 2001. The 
managers believe this will afford adequate time for the 
exercise of the authority of the President under the Foreign 
Assistance Act and other law to determine what terms and 
conditions, if any, should be imposed on assistance for 
population planning and other population activities.

                PROVISIONS NOT ADOPTED BY THE CONFEREES

      The conference agreement does not include section 530 of 
the House bill or similar Senate language that would have 
prohibited the transfer of Stinger missiles to countries 
bordering the Persian Gulf notwithstanding any other provision 
of law, but would have authorized the transfer of Stinger 
missiles on a replacement basis subject to certain specified 
conditions. This matter has been addressed by the authorizing 
committees in H.R. 4919, the Security Assistance Act of 2000.
      The conference agreement does not include section 577 of 
the Senate amendment regarding stockpiling of defense articles

Act of 2000. The House bill did not address this matter.

the Senate amendment providing authority to establish a working 
capital fund at the Agency for International Development. This 
matter has been addressed in separate legislation. The House

the Senate amendment that would have deemed the Federal 
Republic of Yugoslavia (with the exception of Montenegro and 
Kosova) to be a state sponsor of terrorism until receipt of a 
Presidential certification of certain occurrences within 
Serbia. The House bill did not address this matter.
      The conference report does not include section 584 of the 
Senate amendment that would have required that a number of 
specified sanctions against Serbia remain in place until a 
certification was issued by the President. The certification 
would have required that Serbia comply with a number of 
international agreements, and provided an exemption for 
Montenegro and Kosova for the sanctions imposed through 
international financial institutions. The House bill did not 
address this matter.
      The conference agreement does not include section 586 of 
the Senate amendment regarding the repeal of the final proviso 
under title VI of the fiscal year 2000 appropriations act for 
foreign operations, export financing, and related programs. 
This matter was addressed in Public Law 106-52.
      The conference agreement does not include section 588 of 
the House bill regarding HIPC Trust Fund conditions. The Senate 
amendment did not address this matter. The conference agreement 
includes conditions for United States participation in the HIPC 
Trust Fund under ``Debt Restructuring'' in title II.

the House bill. The Senate amendment did not address this

financial institutions to use the voice and vote of the United 
States to oppose loans, credits or guarantees to the Russian 
Federation, except for basic human needs, if the Russian 
Federation delivers any additional SS-N-22 missiles or

did not address this matter.
      The conference agreement does not include section 599K of

            TITLE VI--EMERGENCY SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS

                     BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  Funds Appropriated to the President

                  Agency for International Development

                   International Disaster Assistance

      The conference agreement appropriates $135,000,000 for 
emergency supplemental appropriations for Mozambique, 
Madagascar, and southern Africa rehabilitation and 
reconstruction. The House bill proposed $160,000,000 and the 
Senate amendment proposed $35,000,000. Congress has already 
provided $25,000,000 in fiscal year 2000 supplemental funds 
(Public Law 106-246) for this purpose. These funds are provided 
in the ``International Disaster Assistance'' account. All of 
these funds are made available only to the extent that the 
President makes an official budget request that includes 
designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement.
      The managers direct that the majority of funds be 
provided for Mozambique and Madagascar, which suffered the most 
damage from these cyclones and the resultant flooding. The 
managers direct that no funds be made available to the 
government of Zimbabwe. Further, the conference agreement 
prohibits the use of funds under this title for nonproject 
assistance. This prohibition is not intended to affect the 
accelerated disbursement plan developed by AID for local 
currency projects in Mozambique. The conference agreement 
allows up to $12,000,000 of the funds appropriated under this 
heading to be charged to obligations of previously appropriated 
funds. The conference agreement provides that up to $5,000,000 
of the funds under this heading may be used for administrative 
purposes, and may be merged with AID's operating expenses 
budget.
      The Administrator of AID is directed to report in writing 
to the Committees on Appropriations prior to the obligation of 
any funds under this title. The report shall include a detailed 
plan regarding a description of the projects and programs to be 
carried out with these funds; the exact uses of administrative 
expenses; and the bureau within AID primarily responsible for 
carrying out these projects.

funding is designated as an emergency requirement. All of these 
funds are made available only to the extent that the President 
makes an official budget request that includes designation of 
the entire amount as an emergency requirement. The House 
addressed this matter in H.R. 3908, the 2000 Emergency 
Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed the House on

requirement. The House addressed this matter in H.R. 3908, the 
2000 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed 
the House on March 30, 2000. The recommended level is the same 
as that approved by the House. The Senate amendment did not 
address this matter.

and Development. The funding is designated as an emergency 
requirement. All of these funds are made available only to the 
extent that the President makes an official budget request that

              INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS REFORM

      The conference agreement includes language similar to 
that reported by the Foreign Relations Committee as S. 3129. 
This matter was not addressed by the House bill and the Senate 
amendment.
      Section 801 repeals the existing limitation on the 
availability of earnings on profits of nonpublic gold sales by 
the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and authorizes 
$435,000,000 for a United States contribution to the Heavily 
Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Trust Fund. It also requires the 
Secretary of the Treasury to certify that specified policy 
reforms are being implemented by the World Bank and the IMF, 
or, if such certification can not be made, report on the 
progress, if any, made by the Bank and Fund in adopting and 
implementing such reform policies.
      Section 802 seeks to strengthen procedures for monitoring 
use of funds by multilateral development banks (MDBs). Section 
803 requires the Comptroller General or the Secretary of the 
Treasury to make annual reports on the sufficiency of audits of 
the financial operations of each MDB, actions taken by 
beneficiary countries to reduce the opportunity for bribery and 
corruption, and the graduation policies of IDA.
      Section 804 repeals a provision of the Foreign Assistance 
Act of 1961 relating to bilateral funding for international 
financial institutions.
