       JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE

      The managers on the part of the House and the Senate at 
the conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on 
the amendment of the Senate to the bill (H.R. 2216) making 
supplemental appropriations for the fiscal year ending 
September 30, 2001, and for other purposes, submit the 
following joint statement to the House and the Senate in 
explanation of the effects of the action agreed upon by the 
managers and recommended in the accompanying conference report.
      Report language included by the House in the report 
accompanying H.R. 2216 (H. Rept. 107-102) which is not changed 
by the Senate in the report accompanying S. 1077 (S. Rept. 107-
33), and Senate report language which is not changed by the 
conference are approved by the committee of conference. The 
statement of managers, while repeating some report language for 
emphasis, is not intended to negate the language referred to

                                TITLE I

                       NATIONAL SECURITY MATTERS

                               CHAPTER 1

                         DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

                    Radiation Exposure Compensation

       payment to the radiation exposure compensation trust fund

      The conference agreement includes language that provides 
such sums as may be necessary in fiscal year 2001 to make 
payment to the Radiation Exposure Compensation Trust Fund. The 
conferees believe that the Federal government must meet its 
obligations to persons, and their families, who were exposed to 
radiation and who now suffer from related diseases. The 
conferees further note that the compensation payments are based 
on claimants meeting eligibility criteria and therefore should 
be mandatory in nature, and such payments are assumed in the 
fiscal year 2002 congressional budget resolution to be scored 
as mandatory with enactment of appropriate legislation starting 
in fiscal year 2002. The conferees are approving these 
additional funds for fiscal year 2001 with the understanding 
and expectation that future funding for this purpose will be 
mandatory and that further discretionary appropriations will 
not be necessary and should not be provided in subsequent 
appropriations acts.

                               CHAPTER 2

                          Spare Parts Funding

      The conferees concur with the Senate's recommended 
reporting requirements concerning supplemental funding for 
consumable and reparable spare parts.

                    Army Recruiting and Advertising

      The conferees recommend $20,900,000, instead of 
$25,000,000 as proposed by the House to fund the Army's 
advertising campaign sufficiently through the end of the fiscal 
year. The conferees are aware of the Army's advertising efforts 
to focus on certain audiences, including Hispanics, and directs 
that no less than $5,000,000 of the funds provided be used to 
further increase existing production efforts directed toward 
Hispanic recruits.

                     Army Real Property Maintenance

      The conferees do not agree with the direction in the 
Senate report regarding the allocation of Army real property 
maintenance funding.

             Department of Defense Energy Demand Reduction

      The conferees include $45,700,000 as proposed by the 
House instead of $28,700,000 as proposed by the Senate, for 
Department of Defense energy demand reduction programs. The 
conferees are greatly concerned about the impact of Department 
of Defense energy consumption on the Western power grid. The 
conferees believe strongly that the Secretary of Defense must 
address this issue with a plan that combines greater energy 
efficiencies with a determined effort to fully utilize the 
Department's significant generating capabilities, as well as 
the land and other natural resources that are available for 
lease to private power companies. In order to assist in 
relieving energy demand during electric power emergencies in 
the western region during such emergencies, the Secretary 
should use all electric generating facilities owned or operated 
by the Department of Defense in that region, other than 
hydroelectric or facilities required for high priority military 
readiness, to generate energy for use by facilities of the 
Department of Defense or to be interconnected to public 
electric power transmission and distribution systems for use on 
a reimbursable basis. Of the funds provided, the conferees 
direct the following are to remain available through fiscal 
year 2002 and to be used as follows:
      For ``Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide'', up to 
$5,500,000, to implement an aggressive energy conservation 
program which performs energy and sustainability audits of 
facilities at Department of Defense installations on the 
Western power grid to produce specific recommendations for 
immediate implementation of energy conservation measures. The 
conferees direct that the program be conducted using as equal 
partners, Brooks Energy and Sustainability Laboratory and 
Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, with the inclusion of other 
entities with expertise in the field as appropriate.
      For ``Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide'', 
$1,300,000, to conduct a study of installations within the 
Western power grid for siting potential energy generating 
facilities under an environmental stewardship program. The 
conferees note that the National Defense Authorization Act, 
2001, expands the Department of Defense's authority to lease 
real property. This authority could be utilized to site energy 
generating facilities on installations in return for low cost/
no cost reliable power. In addition, there is significant 
opportunity to leverage private sector investment for 
environmental restoration in such lease agreements. The 
conferees direct that the study be focused on and coordinated 
with an organization having particular experience in 
establishing a public/private sector capital investment 
environmental stewardship program for siting power generation 
systems and addressing urgent environmental issues with 
potential installations, their local communities, and 
regulatory agencies. The conferees further direct that the 
Secretary of Defense designate an appropriate entity using 
existing personnel within the Department of Defense to 
centralize service activities under this initiative, and report 
to the congressional defense committees not later than March 
31, 2002, on the results of this study and efforts by the 
Department to lease real property for these purposes.
      For ``Operation and Maintenance, Navy'', $10,200,000 for 
geothermal well drilling at China Lake.
      The conferees direct that in distributing requested funds 
for the Energy Demand Reduction program, the Department should 
prioritize projects based upon available data to include 
increases in installation utility costs, the rate of savings in 
energy demand the project will produce, and the availability of 
service resources to complete the project. The conferees 
further direct the Secretary to submit a report to the 
congressional defense committees within 45 days of enactment of 
this Act that describes the complete criteria to be used and 
the proposed projects for distribution of these funds.

                              PROCUREMENT

      The supplemental request included $550,700,000 for 
functions funded in title III, Procurement, of the Department 
of Defense Appropriations Act. The conferees recommend 
$572,650,000 instead of $488,700,000 as proposed by the House, 
and $596,150,000 as proposed by the Senate. The following table 
summarizes the conferees' recommendations.

                        OTHER PROCUREMENT, ARMY

                 Shortstop Electronic Protection System

      The conferees agree to restore $4,000,000 of the 
$8,000,000 rescinded by the House for the Shortstop Electronic 
Protection System (SEPS), and to realign these funds from 
``Procurement, Marine Corps'' to ``Other Procurement, Army'', 
only for the purpose of procuring the SEPS countermeasure 
system to meet the force protection requirements of Army 
National Guard units deploying to contingency operations areas 
and for other Army National Guard requirements.

                       AIRCRAFT PROCUREMENT, NAVY

             Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS)

      The conferees are concerned by the Department of the 
Navy's decision to discontinue acquisition of the Joint Primary 
Aircraft Training System (JPATS) for fiscal years 2002 through 
2007. JPATS is currently scheduled to replace all Air Force and 
Navy primary training aircraft and ground based training 
systems. The program was designed to provide a training 
aircraft that offers better performance, increased safety, and 
greater cost-effectiveness than the existing trainer aircraft 
fleet. The program was also conceived as a joint program with 
the Navy and the Air Force to create a common multi-service 
flight training environment as well as to take advantage of 
economies of scale during the production run.
      The conferees direct that no later than 30 days after the 
enactment of this Act, the Secretary of the Navy shall submit a 
report to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees 
detailing the business case for deferring JPATS acquisition. 
The report should include a discussion of: (1) all life cycle 
cost impacts associated with the decision to defer acquisition 
of JPATS; (2) safety issues related to continued use of the T-
34 trainer; and (3) the implications of a non-joint initial 
flight training curriculum.

                     MISSILE PROCUREMENT, AIR FORCE

                         GPS Nuclear Detonation

      The conferees agree to provide $15,500,000 in the 
``Missile Procurement, Air Force'' account for GPS Nuclear 
Detonation. The conferees direct that these funds shall be 
executed within the line-item entitled, ``NUDET Detection 
System''. The conferees agree with the Senate direction 
regarding transfer of funds in the outyears. The conferees 
expect the Air Force, as executive agent for space, to protect 
the interests of the diverse stakeholders who rely on enabling 
space technology to achieve mission success.

               RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION

      The supplemental request included $440,500,000 for 
functions funded in title IV, Research, Development, Test and 
Evaluation, of the Department of Defense Appropriations Act. 
The conferees recommend $492,600,000, instead of $525,600,000 
as proposed by the House, and $385,500,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The following table summarizes the conferees' 
recommendations.

                  Global Hawk Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

      The conferees agree to provide $17,000,000 to accelerate 
the development of the Global Hawk High Altitude Endurance 
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle as recommended by the House, instead of 
$25,000,000 as recommended by the Senate.
      The conferees agree the Air Force should use up to 
$3,000,000 of the funds provided to conduct a competitive fly-
off demonstration to evaluate existing sensor systems, 
particularly electro-optical and infrared sensors and synthetic 
aperture radars. Prior to the obligation of the funds for the 
fly-off demonstration, the Air Force should submit a report to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations that outlines 
the strategy and milestone decision points for the 
demonstration.

            RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION, NAVY

                                  V-22

      The conferees agree to retain sufficient fiscal year 2001 
funding for the V-22 program to sustain current minimum 
production rates and support the Blue Ribbon Panel's findings, 
as well as make prudent reductions to the program in 
recognition that the aircraft's deficiencies must be corrected. 
As such, the conferees approve a supplemental appropriation of 
$80,000,000 for the V-22 development program only for 
correction of deficiencies, flight test, and flight test 
support. A reduction of $199,000,000 is approved for the Marine 
Corps V-22 procurement program, instead of the $235,000,000 
reduction proposed by the Defense Department. This adjustment 
will allow the Marine Corps to purchase 11 aircraft, the 
minimum production rate required. The conferees also approve a 
reduction of $327,500,000 from the CV-22 procurement program, 
delaying initial acquisition of this aircraft until 
deficiencies can be corrected.
      The conferees remain supportive of the goals of the 
Special Operations Command concerning the CV-22, but believe 
that all issues with the program restructure need to be 
resolved before acquisition of CV-22 test articles is 
warranted.

        RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION, DEFENSE-WIDE

                  National Imagery and Mapping Agency

      The conferees agree to two rescissions totaling 
$7,000,000, from ``Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, 
Defense-Wide'' and a reappropriation of these amounts for the 
National Imagery and Mapping Agency. The conferees agree to 
provide $4,000,000 for PIPES and $3,000,000 for Blast 
Visualization-COTS Visualization and Blast Modeling for Force 
Protection.

  Center for the Commercial Deployment of Transportation Technologies

      The conferees believe that preliminary studies of high 
speed cargo craft for ocean shipping conducted by the Center 
for the Commercial Deployment of Transportation Technologies 
under the guidance of USTRANSCOM and MARAD hold promise for 
development of safe and profitable high-speed shipping vessels 
that would have utility for the movement of high priority 
military cargo. The conferees expect USTRANSCOM to accelerate 
planning efforts for follow-on CCDoTT development and 
engineering activities to aid in the evaluation of current 
sealift designs, shipbuilding requirements and capabilities, 
and advanced shipbuilding technology, and examination of market 
opportunity and economic viability. The USTRANSCOM shall 
provide to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by 
no later than September 30, 2001 an outyear funding plan 
including funding requirements and a milestone timetable for 
continuing the follow-on development and engineering studies 
for this effort.

                     REVOLVING AND MANAGEMENT FUNDS

                     DEFENSE WORKING CAPITAL FUNDS

      The supplemental request included $178,400,000 for

            Support to Military Medical Treatment Facilities

      The conferees have agreed to provide an increase over the 
President's budget request of $150,000,000 to initiate an 
effort to reverse the disinvestments in the military direct 
care system. This compares to an increase of $200,000,000 
proposed by the House and an increase of $68,800,000 proposed 
by the Senate. The conferees agree that better utilization of 
direct care military medical treatment facilities must be a 
principal component of the Department's future plans to control 
the explosive cost growth in the Defense Health Program. These 
funds are to be distributed as follows:
            $30,000,000 for Army optimization projects;
            $30,000,000 for Navy optimization projects;
            $30,000,000 for Air Force optimization projects;
            $30,000,000 for advanced medical practices;
            $30,000,000 for other direct care/MTF requirements.
      The conferees agree to the direction provided in the 
House report outlining the types of optimization projects that 
are eligible for these funds, guidance on calculating the cost 
effectiveness proviso in the bill for potential optimization 
projects, and the requirement for reporting to Congress on the 
use of these funds. The conferees agree that the $30,000,000 
reserved for advanced medical practices shall be used to 
implement newly developed practices, procedures and techniques 
such as laser refractive eye surgery, liquid based cytology, 
positron emission tomography, non-invasive colonoscopy, and 
rigorous pre-symptomatic screening to augment existing DoD 
personal wellness and readiness programs.

                   Outcomes Management Demonstration

      The conferees support the outcomes management 
demonstration at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC). 
In addition, the conferees have provided an additional 
$30,000,000, to remain available until expended, to address 
immediate shortfalls in the direct care system and military 
medical treatment facilities. From within these funds, the 
conferees direct that $16,000,000 be made available to continue 
the outcomes management demonstration at WRAMC.

                        Recovery of Overpayments

      The conferees are aware of potentially significant 
opportunities to recover past capital and direct medical 
expense (CDME) TRICARE overpayments to civilian hospitals. The 
conferees urge the Secretary of Defense to act expeditiously to 
recover such overpayments, and to evaluate the use of existing, 
innovative methodologies developed in the private sector for 
this type of recovery auditing.

                          Classified Programs

      The recommendations of the conferees regarding classified 
programs are summarized in a classified annex accompanying this 
statement.

the Senate which allows for the conveyance by the Secretary of 
the Army of certain firefighting and rescue vehicles to the 
City of Bayonne, New Jersey.
      The conferees agree to retain section 1211, as proposed 
by the Senate which prohibits obligating or expending any 
fiscal year 2001 funds for retiring or dismantling any of the 
current force of 93 B-1B Lancer bomber aircraft in fiscal year 
2001. The Department of Defense has proposed to retire 33 B-1B 
aircraft at three locations and use a portion of the savings to 
upgrade the remaining 60 aircraft in the fleet. The conferees 
note that this provision does not preclude any planning 
activities by the Department of Defense to retire these 33 
aircraft in the future, nor does it prohibit implementation of 
this plan in FY 2002. The intent of this provision is to afford 
the Congress and the Department a sufficient amount of time to 
review the full implications of this proposal and to evaluate 
all alternatives.
      As part of this review, the Secretary of Defense is 
directed to provide the congressional defense committees, 
within 30 days of enactment of this Act, a detailed 
justification of its B-1B reduction and realignment proposal 
that includes: (1) a description of the current operational 
deficiencies of the B-1B aircraft, the plan and cost for 
correcting those deficiencies (to include increasing the 
mission capable rate to a minimum of 75 percent), and an 
assessment of the operational performance, survivability, and 
overall viability of the upgraded aircraft; (2) a full 
explanation of the new proposed B-1B basing plan to include a 
full analysis of basing alternatives that compares the relative 
fixed and recurring costs at each base, a comparison of the 
workforce characteristics of each base in terms of experience, 
productivity and operational performance, and the variable cost 
differences for different B-1B aircraft maintenance options; 
and (3) a detailed assessment of the operational, budgetary, 
and personnel impacts for the Air National Guard.

      The conference agreement includes language proposed by 
the Senate modified to place a cap of $60,000 on the amount to

Protection Fund ($43,000). The conferees also limit the use of 
the funds to fiscal year 2001 instead of fiscal year 2002 as 
proposed by the Senate and ``without fiscal year limitation'' 
as proposed in the request. The conferees note that there was 
no supporting justification material for this language. This 
request is similar to the one just discussed under ``Economic 
Development and Regulation''. The conferees direct District 
officials to submit detailed justification material for all 
budget requests. The conferees request an accounting by 
November 30, 2001, as to how the funds were used and the 
purposes for which they were used.

                        Public Education System

      The conference agreement appropriates $13,000,000 as 
proposed by the Senate instead of $14,000,000 of which $250,000 
was by transfer and $750,000 was from local funds as proposed 
by the House. The conference agreement allocates $1,000,000 for 
a census-type audit of student enrollment and $12,000,000 for 
the 2001 summer school session as proposed by the Senate 
instead of $1,000,000 for a census-type audit of student 
enrollment, $12,000,000 for the 2001 summer school session and

from local funds for the Excel Institute Adult Education 
Program as proposed by the House. Federal funds of $1,000,000, 
including $250,000 by transfer, for the Excel Institute are 
provided earlier in this chapter.

                    General Provision--This Chapter

      The conference agreement includes language proposed by 
the Senate as a new section 2301 modified to require the Mayor 
to provide to the House and Senate appropriating and 
authorizing committees a report on the specific authority 
necessary to carry out the responsibilities transferred to the 
Chief Financial Officer in a non-control year, outlined in 
Section 155 of Public Law 106-522, and responsibilities 
outlined in DC Bill 14-254 passed by the District Council on 
July 10, 2001 relating to the transition of responsibilities 
under Public Law 104-8, the District of Columbia Financial 
Responsibility and Management Assistance Act of 1995. The 
report is to be submitted within 45 days of enactment of this 
Act.
      In 1995, the Congress enacted the District of Columbia 
Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance Act, Public 
Law 104-8, for the purpose of restoring financial solvency and 
improving effective management of the District of Columbia. The 
Act created the ``Control Board'' to oversee the management of 
the District of Columbia and established an independent Office 
of the Chief Financial Officer within the District government, 
responsible for all financial offices of the District (budget, 
controller, treasurer, finance and revenue) (GAO-01-845T). As 
the conditions of a ``control period'' have been met and the 
Control Board terminates at the end of fiscal year 2001, 
certain functions performed by the Control Board have been 
transferred to the responsibility of the Chief Financial 
Officer. Public Law 106-522, the Fiscal Year 2001 District of 
Columbia Appropriations Act, outlines twenty-four (24) specific 
responsibilities for the Chief Financial Officer in a non-
control year.
      The conferees recognize that the District of Columbia 
government has enacted legislation promoting the independence, 
expertise and authority of the Office of the Chief Financial 
Officer. The conferees are committed to ensuring that the Chief 
Financial Officer has the necessary tools to insure that 
reliable, accurate, and objective financial information is 
available to the Mayor, the Council, the Congress, the 
financial markets, District citizens an other interested 
parties. The conferees intend to work closely with the 
authorizing committees and the District of Columbia on this 
critical issue as we develop the fiscal year 2002 
appropriations bill.

                               CHAPTER 4

                      DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE--CIVIL

                         DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY

                       Corps of Engineers--Civil

 flood control, mississippi river and tributaries, arkansas, illinois, 
       kentucky, louisiana, mississippi, missouri, and tennessee

      The conference agreement includes $9,000,000 for Flood 
Control, Mississippi River and Tributaries instead of 
$18,000,000 as proposed by the House. The Senate did not 
propose funding for this account.

                   operation and maintenance, general

      The conference agreement includes $86,500,000 for 
Operation and Maintenance, General instead of $139,200,000 as 
proposed by the House. The Senate did not propose funding for 
this account. Of the amount provided, $18,000,000 is for the 
Corps of Engineers to address critical maintenance items at its 
hydroelectric power facilities. In addition, language has been 
included in the bill which directs the Corps of Engineers to 
use $8,000,000 to assist with the recovery efforts resulting 
from the devastating effects of flooding which occurred in 
Southern and Central West Virginia in July of this year. The 
conference agreement also includes language proposed by the 
House which directs the Corps of Engineers to undertake the 
project authorized by section 518 of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 1999.

                 flood control and coastal emergencies

      The conference agreement includes $50,000,000 for Flood 
Control and Coastal Emergencies as proposed by the House and 
the Senate.

                          DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

                            Energy Programs

                  non-defense environmental management

      The conference agreement provides $11,950,000 for Non-
Defense Environmental Management as proposed by the House 
instead of $11,400,000 as proposed by the Senate. Additional 
funding of $10,000,000 is provided to continue cleanup at the 
Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York, and $1,950,000 is 
provided to study remediation options at the former Atlas 
Corporation's uranium mill tailings site near Moab, Utah.

             uranium facilities maintenance and remediation

      The conference agreement provides $30,000,000 for Uranium 
Facilities Maintenance and Remediation instead of $18,000,000 
as proposed by the House and the Senate. The conference 
agreement includes $18,000,000 to accelerate cleanup activities 
at the gaseous diffusion plant in Paducah, Kentucky, and 
$12,000,000 to continue decontamination and decommissioning 
activities at the former gaseous diffusion plant in Oak Ridge, 
Tennessee.

                     Power Marketing Administration

 construction, rehabilitation, operation and maintenance, western area 
                          power administration

      The conference agreement provides $1,578,000 for 
Construction, Rehabilitation, Operation and Maintenance, 
Western Area Power Administration as proposed by the House, 
instead of no funding as proposed by the Senate. Non-
reimbursable funding of $1,328,000 is provided to complete 
planning and environmental studies for the Path 15 transmission 
line. Non-reimbursable funding of $250,000 is provided to 
conduct a planning study of transmission expansion options and 
projected costs in Western's Upper Great Plains Region. 
Existing Western transmission capacity iis insufficient to 
support the development of known energy resources that could 
support new electric generation capacity in the Upper Great 
Plains Region. The directed study will require assumptions as 
to future generation locations. Western is directed to solicit 
suggestions from interested parties for the sites that should 
be studied as potential locations for new generation and to 
consult with such parties before conducting the study. Western 
is directed to produce an objective evaluation of options that 
may be used by all interested parties.

                    General Provisions--This Chapter

      The conference agreement includes language proposed by 
the House to provide $500,000 for completion of the feasibility 
study for Chickamauga Lock, Tennessee.
      The conference agreement does not include language 
proposed by the House to transfer $23,700,000 from the National 
Nuclear Security Administration to the Corps of Engineers.
      The conference agreement modifies language proposed by 
the Senate which allows the Bureau of Reclamation to accept 
prepayment of certain obligations.
      The conference agreement does not include language 
proposed by the Senate to provide $250,000 within available 
funds for the Western Area Power Administration for a study to 
determine the costs and feasibility of transmission expansion. 
Funding for this activity has been provided in the Western Area 
Power Administration appropriation account.
      The conference agreement modifies language proposed by 
the Senate to amend the Energy Employees Occupational Illness 
Compensation Program Act of 2000 by including renal cancers as 
a basis for benefits under this program. The conference 
agreement makes the provision effective on October 1, 2001.

                               CHAPTER 5

                     BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  Agency for International Development

                Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund

                         (Including Rescission)

      The conference agreement appropriates $100,000,000 for 
``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' as proposed by the 
Senate. The House bill did not contain a provision on this 
matter. These funds are available until expended and may be 
made available, notwithstanding any other provision of law, for 
a United States contribution to a global trust fund to combat 
HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis.
      The conference agreement rescinds $10,000,000 from fiscal 
year 2001 and prior year balances available under ``Child 
Survival and Disease Programs Fund''. The Senate amendment 
would have rescinded $10,000,000 from fiscal year 2001 funds 
that were designated for an international HIV/AIDS trust fund. 
The House bill did not contain a provision on this matter.

                  OTHER BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                         Economic Support Fund

                              (Rescission)

      The conference agreement rescinds $10,000,000 from 
unobligated balances of funds available under the heading 
``Economic Support Fund''. The managers expect that the 
Department of State will consult with the Committees on 
Appropriations prior to any reallocation of any funds pursuant 
to this rescission.

                    General Provision--This Chapter

      The conference agreement contains Senate language that 
provides that the final proviso in section 526 of the Foreign 
Operations, Export Financing and Related Programs 
Appropriations Act, 2000, as amended, is repealed, and that the 
funds identified by such proviso shall be made available 
pursuant to the authority of section 526 of Public Law 106-429. 
The managers agree with the Senate report language on this 
provision. The House bill did not address this matter.
      The conference agreement does not contain section 3002 of 
the House bill regarding a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations on the projected uses of the unobligated 
balances of funds available under ``International Disaster 
Assistance'', including plans for allocating additional 
resources to respond to the El Salvador earthquakes. The Senate 
amendment did not address this matter.

                               CHAPTER 6

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

                       Bureau of Land Management

                   Management of Lands and Resources

      The conference agreement provides $3,000,000 for 
management of lands and resources as proposed by the Senate, 
instead of no funding as proposed by the House, to expedite the 
processing of critical energy related permits. The Senate 
proposal to derive these funds by transfer from unobligated 
balances in land acquisition accounts is not agreed to.
      Within the amount provided, $1,250,000 is to reduce the 
backlog of oil and gas permits on Federal lands including: 
$300,000 for activities in New Mexico, $200,000 for activities 
in California, and $750,000 for activities in Wyoming. In 
addition, $200,000 is to process power plant applications in 
New Mexico, $100,000 is for power line rights-of-way in 
California, $500,000 is to support development of the National 
Petroleum Reserve Alaska, and $950,000 is for studies in the 
Powder River Basin in Montana to support coalbed methane 
development, of which $250,000 is for the continuation of 
wetlands filtration research with the Department of Energy and 
Montana State University and of which $200,000 is for 
preparation of a hyperspectral assessment of potential 
concentrations of gas reserves in the Powder River Basin 
covered by the ongoing Environmental Impact Statement. The 
Bureau should report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations as soon as possible on the use of hyperspectral 
data to prioritize the processing of applications to drill.

                United States Fish and Wildlife Service

                              Construction

      The conference agreement provides $17,700,000 for 
construction as proposed by the House, instead of no funding as 
proposed by the Senate, to repair damages to U.S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service facilities caused by floods, ice storms, and 
earthquakes in the States of Washington, Illinois, Iowa, 
Minnesota, Missouri, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and 
Texas. The House proposal to designate this appropriation as an 
emergency requirement is not agreed to.

                         National Park Service

                       United States Park Police

      The conference agreement provides $1,700,000 for United 
States Park Police, as proposed by the House instead of no 
funding as proposed by the Senate. The House recommendation was 
based on information from the National Park Service that U.S. 
Park Police pension costs for fiscal year 2001 had been 
underestimated and that, in order to cover the pension 
shortfall, the National Park Service and the U.S. Park Police 
had to cancel the summer police recruit class. The managers 
have subsequently learned that the U.S. Park Police did not use 
the funds from the canceled recruit class to cover the pension 
shortfall but, instead, funded various other non-emergency 
items. Therefore, the funds provided in this Act are needed to 
cover the pension plan shortfall and the recruit class will not 
be reinstated. The managers caution the U.S. Park Police that 
such unapproved diversions of funds will not be tolerated in 
the future.

                        Bureau of Indian Affairs

                      Operation of Indian Programs

                     (Including transfers of Funds)

      The conference agreement provides $50,000,000 for 
operation of Indian programs as requested by the Administration 
and proposed by both the House and the Senate. The agreement 
includes two changes to the original language. The first change 
permits these funds to remain available until expended and the 
second change clarifies that the funds may be used for electric 
power operations and related activities at the San Carlos 
Irrigation Project. The House proposal to designate this 
appropriation as an emergency requirement is not agreed to.

                             RELATED AGENCY

                       DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

                             Forest Service

                     Forest and Rangeland Research

      The conference agreement provides $1,400,000 for forest 
and rangeland research as proposed in section 2608 of the 
Senate bill for research on sudden oak death syndrome, instead 
of no funding as proposed by the House. The Senate proposal to 
derive these funds by transfer from unobligated balances in the 
land acquisition account is not agreed to.

                       State and private Forestry

      The conference agreement provides $24,500,000 for State 
and private forestry, instead of $22,000,000 as proposed by the 
House and $2,500,000 as proposed by the Senate. Included are 
$10,000,000 to address ice storm damages in the States of 
Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, $12,000,000 for pest suppression 
in several areas of the country, $1,750,000 for emergency fire 
fighting in anchorage, and $750,000 for the Kenai Peninsula 
Borough Spruce Bark Beetle Task Force in Alaska. The Senate-
proposed language dealing with fire fighting in Alaska has been 
modified by deleting references to equipment purchases. The 
House proposal to designate this appropriation as an emergency 
requirement is not agreed to.

                         National Forest System

      The conference agreement provides $12,000,000 for the 
national forest system as proposed by the House instead of 
$10,000,000 as proposed by the Senate, of which $10,000,000 is 
for activities to address ice storm damages in the States of 
Arkansas and Oklahoma and $2,000,000 is to respond to illegal 
marijuana cultivation and trafficking in California and 
Kentucky. The House proposal to designate this appropriation as 
an emergency requirement is not agreed to.

                        Wildland Fire Management

      The conference agreement provides no funding for wildland 
fire management as proposed by the Senate, instead of 
$100,000,000 in emergency funding as proposed by the House.

                  Capital Improvement and Maintenance

                    (Including Rescission of funds)

      The conference agreement provides $4,000,000 for capital 
improvement and maintenance as proposed by both the House and 
the Senate to repair damage caused by ice storms in Arkansas 
and Oklahoma. The House proposal to designate this 
appropriation as an emergency requirement is not agreed to. The 
conference agreement also provides for the extension of 
availability of funds previously appropriated for maintenance 
and snow removal on the Beartooth Highway as proposed by the 
Senate.

                    General Provisions--This Chapter

      Section 2601 includes language proposed by the House to 
permit completion of a wilderness study at Apostle Islands 
National Lakeshore, WI by the National Park Service. The Senate 
addressed this provision under the National Park Service 
``Operation of the National Park System'' account.
      Section 2602 includes language proposed by the House 
extending the availability of funds provided in fiscal year 
2001 for maintenance, protection and preservation of land in 
the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, SD. The Senate 
addressed this provision under the National Park Service 
``Operation of the National Park System'' account.
      Section 2603 includes language proposed by the Senate 
allowing the Bureau of Land Management to use an estimated 
$168,000 in unobligated balances for land exchanges at Steens 
Mountain, OR.
      Section 2604 includes language proposed by both the House 
and the Senate to correct a Public Law reference in section 338 
of the Interior and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for 
fiscal year 2001.
      Section 2605 includes language proposed by both the House 
and the Senate modifying a provision in Public Law 106-558 in 
order to authorize the payment of full overtime rates for fire 
fighters in fiscal year 2001.
      Section 2606 includes language proposed by both the House 
and the Senate to permit the Forest Service to receive 
reimbursement for expenditures for projects that otherwise 
qualify for the use of Federal-aid highways funds.
      Section 2607 includes language proposed by the Senate 
permitting the use of $2,000,000 in fiscal year 2001 funding 
for a direct payment to Ketchikan Public Utilities in Alaska to 
clear a right-of-way for the Swan Lake-Lake Tyee Intertie on 
the Tongass National Forest. Any activity associated with 
clearing the right-of-way must comply with all applicable 
Federal and State environmental laws and regulations.
      Section 2608 includes language proposed by the Senate 
making permanent a provision dealing with the distribution of 
certain Bureau of Indian Affairs funds to small tribes in 
Alaska.
      Section 2609 modifies language proposed by the Senate 
restricting additional self-determination contracts and self-
governance compacts for the provision of health care services 
to Alaska Natives. The modification extends the current 
restriction for three additional years rather than making it a 
permanent restriction.

                               CHAPTER 7

                          DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

                 Employment and Training Administration

                    training and employment services

                        (including rescissions)

      The conference agreement includes $25,000,000 for the 
Youth Activities program authorized under the Workforce 
Investment Act as opposed to $45,000,000 proposed by the 
Senate. The House bill contained no similar provision. The 
Secretary of Labor had proposed a reprogramming of fiscal year 
2001 funds to increase funding for the Youth Activities program 
by $45,000,000.
      The conference agreement rescinds $65,000,000 from funds 
appropriated under sections 169 and 171 of the Workforce 
Investment Act, of which $25,000,000 is rescinded from funds 
available for Youth Opportunity Grants; $20,000,000 from funds 
available for Safe Schools/Healthy Students; and $20,000,000 
from funds available for the Incumbent Workers program. The 
Senate bill included a rescission totaling $45,000,000; 
$25,000,000 from Youth Opportunity Grants and $20,000,000 from 
Safe Schools/Healthy Students. The House bill contained no 
similar provision. The Secretary of Labor had proposed 
reprogramming these funds for other purposes.
      The conference agreement rescinds $177,500,000 from funds 
for Dislocated Worker training activities authorized under the 
Workforce Investment Act, of which, $110,000,000 is from 
amounts allotted for formula grants to States and $67,500,000 
is from the National Reserve. The Senate bill rescinded 
$217,500,000 from the Dislocated Worker program. The House bill 
contained no similar provision.
      The conference agreement includes provisions directing 
the Secretary to allocate the rescission in the Dislocated 
Worker formula grant funds based upon each State's share of the 
unexpended balances in the program as of June 30, 2001. The 
Senate bill contained provisions directing the Secretary to 
increase State program year 2001 allotments to States with 
acceptable program expenditures by re-allotting unexpended 
balances from States determined by the Secretary to have excess 
unexpended program balances as of June 30, 2001. The House bill 
contained no similar provisions.
      In addition, the conference agreement modifies language 
included in the Senate bill to make the rescission effective at 
the time the Secretary determines, based upon the best 
information available, the unexpended balances in each of the 
States. The conferees expect the Secretary of Labor to render 
her determination by no later than September 30, 2001. The 
House bill contained no similar provision.
      The conferees note that the Governors of each State under 
the Workforce Investment Act have the authority to re-allocate 
unobligated funds among local areas. The conferees encourage 
the Governors to exercise this authority for local areas where 
there is need.
      The conferees are aware of concerns about rescinding 
Workforce Investment Act training funds during a period of 
economic slowdown. However, based on the information available 
to the conferees, it appears that there is excess funding 
available in the program and the rescission is necessary to 
meet other needs in fiscal year 2001.
      The conferees understand that the Secretary of Labor 
requires the Governors to submit State financial data for the 
three Workforce Investment Act block grants on a quarterly 
basis. The data for June 30, 2001, the end of the program year, 
is due on August 15, 2001. The conferees believe that timely 
and accurate data are critical in order for the Congress to 
meet its oversight responsibilities for this important program. 
Therefore the conferees direct the Secretary to submit to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations an expenditure 
data report on each of the three Workforce Investment Act block 
grants at the State level and for the National Reserve funds 
within not more than 60 days of the end of the quarter 
beginning with the data from the end of program year 2000 and 
continuing through program year 2001.

              Pension and Welfare Benefits Administration

                         salaries and expenses

      The conference agreement includes a provision amending 
the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and 
Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2001, to 
extend the availability of funds included for the National 
Summit on Retirement Savings to September 30, 2002. The 
conferees understand the Administration expects to convene the 
Summit in the first part of fiscal year 2002. Neither the House 
nor the Senate bills addressed this matter.

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

              Health Resources and Services Administration

                     health resources and services

      The conference agreement includes two technical 
corrections as proposed by the Senate. The House bill contained 
no similar provisions.

                     National Institutes of Health

                     (including transfer of funds)

      The conference understand that bill language is no longer 
necessary and therefore deletes without prejudice the language 
proposed by the Senate. The conferees further understand that 
the National Institutes of Health will use funds appropriated 
to the Office of the Director to proceed with the planning and 
start-up activities of the newly authorized National Institute 
of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. The House bill 
contained no similar provision.
      The conference agreement includes language to provide for 
the transfer of $7,115,000 from the National Library of 
Medicine to the Buildings and Facilities account to complete 
the design phase of a National Library of Medicine facility. 
The House and Senate bills contained no similar provision.

       Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

               substance abuse and mental health services

      The conference agreement provides $6,500,000 for 
maintenance, repair, preservation, and protection of St. 
Elizabeths Hospital as proposed by the Senate. The House bill 
contained no similar provision.

                Administration for Children and Families

                   low income home energy assistance

      The conference agreement includes $300,000,000 in 
contingency funds to provide home energy assistance to low-
income households, as authorized under section 2602(e) of the 
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981 and provides that 
these funds shall be available until expended, as proposed in 
the Senate bill. The House bill also included $300,000,000 in 
contingency funds but did not make the funds available beyond 
September 30, 2001. The conference agreement provides 
$150,000,000 above the Administration's request of 
$150,000,000.
      The conferees expect that half of the $300,000,000 will 
be available for targeted assistance to States with the most 
critical needs, which may include needs arising from 
significant energy cost increases, significant increases in 
arrearages and disconnections, home energy shortages and supply 
disruptions, weather-related emergencies, natural disasters, or 
increases in unemployment. The conferees further expect that 
the remaining half of the funds will be distributed based on 
the LIHEAP block grant statutory formula so that every State 
has additional resources to address unmet energy assistance 
needs resulting from the extraordinary price increases in home 
heating fuels experienced during this past winter as well as 
funds to address unanticipated emergencies. The conferees note 
that the Department has allocated the last three emergency 
LIHEAP distributions to the States in this manner. The 
conferees direct the Department to provide notification to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations of the amount, 
manner of distribution and justification for the release of 
funds not less than seven days prior to any allotment or 
release of funds.

                Children and Families Services Programs

      The conferees concur with language contained in the 
Senate report regarding a technical correction. The House 
report contained no similar provision.

                    General Departmental Management

      The conferees are displeased with the way in which the 
Department of Health and Human Services has handled responses 
to the May 4, 2001 stem cell letter and its refusal to provide 
to the Committees on Appropriations the report ``Stem Cells: 
Scientific Progress and Future Research Directions'' when 
requested. The conferees direct that specific information 
requests from the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the 
Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education 
and Related Agencies, on stem cell research or any other 
matter, shall be transmitted to the Committees on 
Appropriations, in a prompt professional manner, and within the 
time frame specified in the request. The conferees further 
direct that scientific information requested by the Committees 
on Appropriations and prepared by government researchers and 
scientists, be transmitted to the Committees on Appropriations, 
uncensored and without delay.

                        DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

                            Education Reform

      The conference agreement includes a technical correction 
as proposed by both the House and the Senate.
      The conferees understand that the Department plans to 
award only implementation grants, but no planning grants, to 
school districts under the fiscal year 2001 Smaller Learning 
Communities program. The conferees are very concerned about 
this decision and expect the Department to award both types of 
grants, and to apply the same competitive priorities used in 
the fiscal year 2000 grant competition in determining which 
applicants are funded in the fiscal year 2001 grant 
competition. In addition, the conferees expect that the 
department will continue outreach and technical assistance 
activities to help ensure that school districts are aware that 
smaller schools and smaller learning communities are effective 
research-based strategies to improve student safety, morale, 
retention, and academic achievement.

                    Education for the Disadvantaged

      The conference agreement includes a technical correction 
relating to the amount of funding available for Basic Grants in 
school year 2001-2002 as proposed by both the House and the 
Senate.
      The conference agreement also includes an additional 
$161,000,000 for the Title I Grants to LEAs program. It is the 
intent of the conferees that, when taken together with the 
technical correction to the basic grants amount, these 
additional resources will result in a final fiscal year 2001 
appropriation of $7,397,971,000 for basic grants and 
$1,364,750,000 for concentration grants. The conferees further 
intend that these additional resources will be used to provide 
each State and local educational agency the greater of either 
the amount it would receive at levels specified in the 
conference report to accompany H.R. 4577 under the 100-percent 
hold harmless or what it would receive using the statutory 
formulas. These provisions were proposed by both the House and 
the Senate.
      The technical correction made to the appropriation for 
this program and the additional resources made available by 
this supplemental appropriations act shall take effect as if 
included in Public Law 106-554 on the date of its enactment.

                               Impact Aid

      The conference agreement includes a provision requiring 
Impact Aid construction funds to be distributed in accordance 
with the formula outlined in section 8007 of the Impact Aid 
program as that section existed in fiscal year 2000 as proposed 
by both the House and the Senate.

                           Special Education

      The conference agreement includes a technical correction 
as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

            Education Research, Statistics, and Improvement

      The conference agreement includes technical corrections 
as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

                    General Provisions--This Chapter

      Section 2701. The conference agreement includes a 
provision clarifying the intent of the Congress with regard to 
funding provided pursuant to section 117 of the Carl D. Perkins 
Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998 as proposed by 
the Senate. Funding available for this section is intended to 
be provided only to tribal colleges that do not receive Federal 
support under the Tribally Controlled Community College or 
University Assistance Act of 1978 or the Navajo Community 
College Act and whose primary purpose is to provide full-time 
technical and vocational educational programs to American 
Indian students. The House bill contained no similar provision.
      Section 2702. The conference agreement includes a 
provision authorizing the use of fiscal year 2001 funds 
specifically for transition from the use of analog to digital 
technology for the provision of public broadcasting services 
for fiscal year 2001. The Senate bill included language 
amending the authorizing statute to establish a grant program 
and included two-year authorization of appropriations for the 
grant program. The House bill contained no similar provision.
      Section 2703. The conference agreement includes a 
provision proposed by the Senate which makes a permanent change 
to section 8003 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act 
to clarify which small school districts are eligible for 
special payments authorized within the basic support payments 
program. The conference agreement also includes a provision 
proposed by the Senate stating that this change shall apply to 
funding available in the Department of Education Appropriations 
Act, 2001. The House bill contained no similar provisions.
      These provisions will change the fiscal year 2001 
allocations under the basic support payment program of Impact 
Aid, resulting in some school districts receiving less than 
they were expecting to receive in fiscal year 2001 funds. The 
conferees note that the National Association of Federally 
Impacted Schools supports the adoption of this provision.
      The conferees became aware that certain State and 
district per pupil expenditure data limitations made some of 
the intended beneficiary districts ineligible for the special 
payment provisions authorized in the Impact Aid reauthorization 
bill enacted into law last year. While the appropriation for 
basic support payments in the Department of Education 
Appropriations Act, 2001 assumed full funding for these 
payments, the initial payment calculations made for school 
districts did not. As a result, approximately $2,900,000 set 
aside for payments to districts eligible for special payments 
was included in the calculation for distribution to non-
eligible districts. The conferees intend to make an additional 
$2,900,000 available in the fiscal year 2002 education 
appropriations bill to offset the effect of this amendment.

Capitol (AOC) operations. This management review should include 
an overall assessment of the agency's organizational structure, 
strategic planning, skills, staffing, systems, accountability 
reporting, and execution of its statutory and assigned 
responsibilities. The conferees direct that the General 
Accounting Office (GAO) lead this review, in consultation and 
coordination with the Architect of the Capitol, building upon 
earlier management reviews, and consider best practices in its 
evaluation and recommendations. The GAO report should include 
recommendations for enhancing the overall effectiveness and

results of its review to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations and the Senate Committee on Rules and

      U.S. 119, Letcher County, KY.--The conference agreement 
provides $9,100,000 to the Commonwealth of Kentucky for safety 
improvements to U.S. 119 in Letcher County, Kentucky. U.S. 119 
is a major commercial artery on the National Highway System in 
eastern Kentucky. A section of this road has been the site of 
several major accidents in recent years, including an accident 
involving a school bus six months ago. The Commonwealth of 
Kentucky recently prohibited use of the roadway by large 
commercial vehicles, which the state determined cannot safely 
negotiate several narrow sections of the highway. The state's 
action, while necessary, will disrupt commerce in this region, 
impacting businesses and families. The funds provided will 
allow the state to immediately implement major safety 
improvements that must occur before safe commercial use of the 
road can resume.
      Lake Street access, Minneapolis, MN.--The conference 
agreement provides $4,700,000 for work to proceed to provide 
access to I-35 West from Lake Street in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
      Interstate 55 interchange, MO.--The conference agreement 
provides $500,000 for work to proceed for a new interchange on 
Interstate 55, at the point the Interstate passes over Weber 
Road and the River Des Peres. The new interchange would allow 
increased access to the neighborhood of LeMay in St. Louis 
County and is critical to a local revitalization plan.
      Highway damage in northwest Wisconsin.--The conference 
agreement provides $500,000 for necessary repairs due to recent 
disasters, including the flood, wind, and ice storm of April 
29, 2001.

                             (rescissions)

      The conference agreement includes rescissions of 
appropriations and contract authorizations of $15,918,497 in 
unobligated balances from completed highway projects in eight 
previous highway authorization and appropriations acts, instead 
of $14,000,000 proposed by the Senate. The House bill contained 
no similar rescissions.

                             RELATED AGENCY

               United States--Canada Railroad Commission

      The conference agreement includes $2,000,000, proposed by 
the Senate, for a joint U.S.-Canada commission to study the 
feasibility of connecting the rail system in Alaska to the 
North American continental rail system. Funds are made 
available until expended. The agreement specifies that the 
funds are to be provided directly to the commission, rather 
than to the Alaska Railroad as proposed by the Senate. The 
House bill contained no similar appropriation.

                    General Provisions--This Chapter

      The conference agreement includes a provision, proposed 
by the Senate, making fiscal year 1999 and 2000 funds for 
Northern New Mexico bus and bus facilities projects also 
available for State of New Mexico buses and bus-related 
facilities. The House bill contained no similar provision.
      The conference agreement deletes a provision proposed by 
the Senate which would have made airport development projects 
in two locations eligible for grants under the Airport 
Improvement Program by waiving the requirement that such 
airports be included in FAA's National Plan of Integrated 
Airport Systems (NPIAS). The House bill contained no similar 
provision.
      The conference agreement does not include provisions 
proposed by the Senate which would have prohibited reallocation 
of funds for the Morgantown, West Virginia fixed guideway 
modernization project or the Tuscaloosa, Alabama intermodal 
center. Instead, the conferees direct the Federal Transit 
Administration not to reallocate funds provided in the fiscal 
year 1999 Department of Transportation and Related Agencies 
Appropriations Act (P.L. 105-277) for the Tuscaloosa, Alabama 
intermodal center and the Morgantown, West Virginia fixed 
guideway modernization project. Funds are extended only for one 
additional year, absent further congressional direction. The 
House bill contained no similar provision.

      The conference agreement includes language as proposed in 
the Senate bill making a technical change to extend the 
availability of funds appropriated under this account in Public 
Law 106-377. The House bill included similar language as a 
general provision.
      Language is included clarifying Congressional intent with 
respect to appropriations made to improve cyber-districts in 
Massachusetts and for wastewater and combined sewer overflow 
infrastructure improvements in Massachusetts, as recommended in 
the House bill; and for appropriations made for Rio Arriba 
County, New Mexico, as recommended in the Senate bill. The 
conferees have amended language as proposed by the House which 
clarifies the intent of Congress with respect to a grant made 
for construction at a New Jersey university center and with 
respect to a grant made to the City of Syracuse, New York.

                            Housing Programs

                  MANUFACTURED HOUSING FEES TRUST FUND

      The conference agreement does not include language 
proposed in the House bill authorizing the expenditure of fees 
available in the fund. The conferees understand that separate 
legislation has been enacted to allow for the expenditure of 
these fees in fiscal year 2001. The Senate bill did not address 
this matter.

                     Federal Housing Administration

             FHA--MUTUAL MORTGAGE INSURANCE PROGRAM ACCOUNT

                          (TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement includes language authorizing 
the Department to use $8,000,000 from within existing fiscal 
year 2001 appropriations for FHA administrative expenses and 
HUD salaries and expenses to pay the obligation and accrued 
interest resulting from a probable fiscal year 2000 violation 
of the Anti-Deficiency Act, as proposed in both the House and 
Senate bills.

                fha--general and special risk insurance

      The conference agreement does not include an additional 
appropriation for this account as proposed in the House bill. 
Language is not included to remove certain requirements on 
supplemental funds provided for this account in fiscal year 
2000 as proposed in the Senate bill.

                          INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

                      Department of Defense--Civil

                       Cemeterial Expenses, Army

                         salaries and expenses

      The conferees have amended the language included in the 
House bill providing $243,059 to pay the Cemetery's disputed 
water bill with the District of Columbia. Instead, the 
conferees have included a provision directing the Department of 
Defense to pay the disputed water bill in excess of the amount 
already paid by the Cemetery, and reimburse the Cemetery for 
any draw-down on funds made by the Treasury in excess of the 
Cemetery's current payment.

                    Environmental Protection Agency

                 environmental programs and management

      The conferees have amended language proposed by the House 
which clarifies the intent of Congress with respect to grants 
made for work in Cortland County, New York and Central New York 
watersheds. The language further clarifies the intent of 
Congress with respect to a grant made in Public Law 106-377 to 
the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for environmental work 
related to the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

                   state and tribal assistance grants

      The conferees have included language proposed by the 
House and the Senate clarifying the intent of Congress with 
respect to a grant made to the City of Beloit, Wisconsin. The 
conferees have similarly included language proposed by the 
House which clarifies the intent of Congress with respect to 
grants made to Hartselle Utilities in Alabama and to the 
Southwest Florida Water Management District, and which 
correctly states the dollar amount provided in fiscal year 2001 
for grants under this heading.
      The conferees have amended language proposed by the House 
which clarifies the intent of Congress with respect to grants 
made to the Limestone County Water and Sewer Authority in 
Alabama, and to the City of Clinton, Tennessee.

                  Federal Emergency Management Agency

                            disaster relief

      The conferees agree to make no changes to the FEMA 
Disaster Relief account for fiscal year 2001. The House had 
proposed a rescission of $389,200,000 and the Senate had 
proposed an increase of $1,000,000 for this account. The 
conferees agree that recent significant natural disasters, 
including tropical storm Allison, have severely depleted funds 
previously provided for disaster relief. The conferees note 
that the status of the disaster relief fund today is quite 
different from the status at the time the House originally 
proposed its rescission. At that time over $2,000,000,000 was 
available, but today only about $800,000,000 is available. With 
significant costs yet to be covered, it is clear that 
rescinding funds from this account is not any longer possible. 
Likewise, it is not clear that an eminent need exists for 
additional funding and the conferees have agreed to provide no 
additional funding in fiscal year 2001.

             National Aeronautics and Space Administration

                           human space flight

      The conferees have agreed to changes in language enacted 
as part of Public Law 106-74 (the Fiscal Year 2000 VA-HUD-
Independent Agencies Appropriations Act) as proposed by the 
Senate instead of the changes proposed by the House. The final 
proviso under this heading in Public Law 106-74 restricts the 
use of $40,000,000 to the shuttle research mission, commonly 
referred to as the R-2 mission, to occur after the STS-107 
shuttle research mission. Subsequent events have increased the 
cost of STS-107 and significantly delayed any future research 
mission, resulting in a need to modify the original proviso 
prior to the funds expiring on September 30, 2001. The House 
had proposed deletion of the final proviso under this heading 
in Public Law 106-74, thus allowing the funds to be used for 
other purposes. The House provision also included language 
restricting a portion of the funds to research associated with 
the International Space Station. The Senate proposed to modify 
the proviso to allow the funds to be used for purposes other 
than originally intended and does not include any reference to 
the International Space Station research.
      The conferees agree that the original direction included 
in the proviso is no longer valid. The conferees agree that 
$32,000,000-35,000,000 of the funds provided in the original 
proviso remain available. The conferees agree that $17,000,000 
of the funds shall be to cover cost increases associated with 
the STS-107 mission which have already been incurred and the 
funding can be legitimately expended prior to September 30, 
2001. The mission's costs have increased because its launch has 
been delayed due to the need for extensive repairs to the 
shuttle Columbia's wiring and schedule changes associated with 
the Hubble servicing mission. The remaining funds shall be used 
prior to September 30, 2001 for any projects or activities NASA 
deems to be in legitimate need of funding. The conferees 
further agree that NASA is to take all necessary action to 
ensure that the STS-107 research mission is accomplished and 
contractual obligations are met during fiscal years 2001 and 
2002. NASA is directed to provide the Committees on 
Appropriations a full accounting of the use of the fiscal year 
2000 funding and the subsequent fiscal year accounting 
adjustments to reflect full funding of the STS-107 mission 
prior to its launch currently scheduled for May 2002.
      The conferees understand work is already underway and 
international partners are involved in research scheduled for 
R2 and therefore expect NASA to continue to pursue options for 
carrying out this life and microgravity research as well as 
work to increase research funding and flight opportunities 
during ISS assembly.

                           GENERAL PROVISION

      The conference agreement does not include section 2901, 
recommended in the House bill, as this matter has been 
addressed under the Community development fund account as 
recommended in the Senate bill.

                               TITLE III

                      General Provisions--This Act

      The conference agreement includes a provision as proposed 
by both the House and Senate that limits the availability of 
funds provided in this Act.
      The conference agreement deletes a provision proposed by 
the House relating to the Buy American Act. The Senate bill 
contained no similar provision.
      The conference agreement includes an appropriation of 
$1,700,000 for the United States-China Security Review 
Commission, as proposed by the Senate. The House bill contained 
no similar provision.
