ACCRUAL FUNDING OF RETIREMENT COSTS AND POST-RETIREMENT HEALTH BENEFITS

    The President's Budget included a legislative proposal 
under the jurisdiction of the Senate Committee on Governmental 
Affairs to charge to individual agencies, starting in fiscal 
year 2003, the fully accrued costs related to retirement 
benefits of Civil Service Retirement System employees and 
retiree health benefits for all civilian employees. The Budget 
also requested an additional dollar amount in each affected 
discretionary account to cover these accrued costs.
    The authorizing committee has not acted on this 
legislation, therefore the Senate Appropriations Committee has 
reduced the dollar amounts of the President's request shown in 
the ``Comparative Statement of New Budget Authority Request and 
Amounts Recommended in the Bill'', as well as in other tables 
in this report, to exclude the accrual funding proposal.
    The Committee further notes that administration proposals 
requiring legislative action by the authorizing committees of 
Congress are customarily submitted in the budget as separate 
schedules apart from the regular appropriations requests. 
Should such a proposal be enacted, a budget amendment formally 
modifying the President's appropriation request for 
discretionary funding is subsequently transmitted to the 
Congress.
    The Senate Appropriations Committee joins with the House 
Appropriations Committee in raising concern that this practice, 
which has always worked effectively for both Congress and past 
administrations, was not followed for the accrual funding 
proposal. In this case, the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) decided to include accrual amounts in the original 
discretionary appropriations language request. These amounts 
are based on legislation that has yet to be considered and 
approved by the appropriate committees of Congress. This led to 
numerous misunderstandings both inside and outside of Congress 
of what was the ``true'' President's budget request. The 
Committee believes that, in the future, OMB should follow long-
established procedures with respect to discretionary spending 
proposals that require legislative action.

                           GENERAL STATEMENT

    The Committee highly values the priorities of the Mayor and 
the Council of the District of Columbia, and this bill reflects 
those priorities. In testimony before the Subcommittee, the 
Mayor conveyed his priorities for the city; the first among 
them is investing in high quality education. The city's budget 
increases funding for District Public Schools and Charter 
Schools to renovate quality school buildings, and creates 
initiatives to recruit and train highly talented principals and 
teachers. A second major priority of the Mayor is to enhance 
clean and safe neighborhoods through environmental remediation 
and economic development. The Committee supports the city's 
investments in public safety, cleanup of the Anacostia River, 
and health care to the city's most vulnerable citizens. 
Thirdly, the Committee commends the Mayor and Council for 
continuing to make a priority the financial responsibility and 
strength of the city. The Committee shares the city's 
priorities in education, the environment, and fiscal strength 
and joins with the District of Columbia in a partnership for 
progress. The Committee encourages the District to build upon 
the dramatic reform created under the Control Board.
    The Committee has a three-part responsibility to the 
Government and the citizens of the District of Columbia and all 
United States citizens.
    The first is to carry out the responsibilities transferred 
to Federal authority through the 1997 District of Columbia 
Revitalization Act. Public safety and social services are 
critical functions of government in any city. In the capital 
city, the Federal Government shares in the responsibility to 
the citizens of the District, the employees of the Government 
seated here in the capital, and a more broad responsibility to 
all people who visit the capital, to provide services that 
ensure a safe city for all. These agencies play a key role in 
promoting public safety and justice in the District. That 
responsibility entails oversight of three quasi-Federal 
agencies that provide services to the District: the Superior 
Court and the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia, the 
Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency, and the 
Defender Services Agency.
    The second main responsibility the Congress has to the 
District is to act as partner with the city in maintaining the 
financial stability and strong management of the city created 
by the federally-conceived Control Board, enacted in the 1995 
Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance Act. In 
2001, the District fulfilled the benchmarks set forth in the 
Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance Act to end a 
control period and return to home rule: all obligations arising 
from the Authority's issuance of bonds, notes, or other 
obligations have been discharged; all borrowing by the District 
from the United States Treasury has been repaid; the District 
government has adequate access to short and long-term credit 
markets at reasonable rates to meet its borrowing needs; and 
the District has achieved balanced or surplus budgets for four 
consecutive fiscal years.
    The Congress has a responsibility to engage with the city 
in transitioning back to local control the financial and 
budgetary oversight and management responsibility functions 
that the Control board provided. Part of that transition was 
addressed in Public Law 106-522, the fiscal year 2001 District 
of Columbia Appropriations Act. The responsibility for 
financial management duties, established by the Control Board 
Act of 1995 and vested in the Control Board, were transferred 
to the Office of the Chief Financial Officer. These duties 
include administering all debt and cash management of the 
District government, preparing financial reports and the 
District's annual budget. The Committee is determined to ensure 
that the requirements set forth in the Control Board Act 
continue to be adhered to in non-Control years. Additionally, 
the Committee is specifically concerned that the entity 
identified to ensure fiscal responsibility in the District, the 
Chief Financial Officer, also has the appropriate and 
sufficient tools to carry out that responsibility. To that and, 
the Committee supported language in the fiscal year 2002 
Emergency Supplemental to clarify that the Office of the Chief 
Financial Officer maintains independence.
    The third responsibility that the Congress has to the 
District of Columbia is to carry out the Constitutional mandate 
to approve the local budget of the District. The Committees' 
view is that the local funds budget presented to the Congress 
by the locally elected officials of the District should be 
approved in whole by the Congress. The city should be allowed 
to use local funds pursuant to local laws, just as any other 
city operates, in that manner.
    In addition to approving the local budget and Federal funds 
for the three quasi-Federal public safety and justice agencies, 
the Committee supports a partnership with the District of 
Columbia to support infrastructure development in select 
initiatives. The Committee recommendation supports three 
specific goals in the District: a cleaner environment, more 
school choice, and better public safety. To address the first 
goal, the Committee is including $58,000,000 for the Anacostia 
Waterfront Initiative, which will prevent further deterioration 
of the river, begin the process of restoring the river to 
health, rebuild water and sewer infrastructure, and invest in 
waterfront development. To address the second goal, the 
Committee is including $20,000,000 for school choice to, 
support Charter School facility loans and enhance the ability 
of charter schools to provide improved educational 
opportunities in the District. To address the third goal, the 
Committee is including $31,100,000 for public safety, to invest 
in the infrastructure necessary to support modern emergency 
response capacity.
    The Committee has also included funding for education, 
public safety, the environment and economic development in the 
District.

                DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA FINANCIAL CONDITION

    In the past year, the District of Columbia has enjoyed some 
notable successes, including the fifth consecutive 
``unqualified'' (or clean) opinion from the city's independent 
auditors, with the fiscal year 2001 Comprehensive Annual 
Financial Report (CAFR) completed ahead of time and with a 
balanced budget. Overall, the city ended fiscal year 2001 with 
a surplus of $77,600,000 and a positive fund balance of 
$562,200,000. In fiscal year 1996, there was a negative fund 
balance of $518,000,000, reflecting a turnaround of over a 
billion dollars. This result is another milestone for the 
financial turnaround that began in fiscal year 1997. It is a 
fitting beginning for the District's return to Home Rule on 
October 1, 2001, with the end of the Financial Responsibility 
and Management Assistance Authority (or Control Board). The 
Committee recognizes that the Control Board initiated critical 
reforms that provided a framework for the District's current 
financial stability. However, the Committee notes several areas 
where the national economic slowdown and reduced revenues have 
impacted the District's financial stability, particularly in 
agencies still struggling to improve financial management and 
accountability.
Fiscal year 2002 Spending Pressures
    The District as a whole faced spending pressures totaling 
$276,000,000 in several agencies, of which $125,000,000 is 
attributed to the District of Columbia Public Schools. The 
majority of spending pressures have been attributed to 
shortfalls in Medicaid reimbursements, increases in case loads, 
and unbudgeted contract increases. However, significant 
pressures are the result of cost overruns, particularly in 
Special Education and at D.C. General Hospital, and unnecessary 
delays in reductions in force.
    The District agreed upon various measures to reduce 
$74,000,000 of spending pressures within fiscal year 2002 
agency budgets. The remaining amount, over $200,000,000, has 
been addressed through reprogrammings, transfers from the 
Reserves, and rescissions approved in the fiscal year 2002 
Supplemental. The Committee is concerned that spending 
pressures have been met by reducing the budgets of certain 
agencies to cover the uncontrolled expenses of other agencies 
facing major financial management challenges. The Committee 
recommends that more rigorous steps be taken to implement 
proposed reforms, particularly in education, child welfare, 
medical billing, and personnel management.
    The Committee commends the District for addressing budget 
pressures swiftly, but remains concerned that these short-term 
actions will not prevent future pressures. In addition, 
corrective measures of this type and amount may not always be 
feasible in the future. The Committee is encouraged by the work 
of the Mayor, Council and Chief Financial Officer to address 
spending pressures to avoid deficits. In fiscal year 2001, the 
city was unable to address last minute overspending, and as a 
result two agencies ended the year deficient by over 
$72,000,000. The District of Columbia Public Schools and the 
Department of Mental Health caused the over-expenditure 
resulting from pressures in Medicaid reimbursements and Special 
Education costs. The Committee is encouraged that the District 
plans to streamline Medicaid reimbursements; however, 
significant actions have not been taken to date. The Committee 
is concerned that short-term fixes will not solve a long-term 
financial financing problem.
    The Committee is particularly concerned that $15,000,000 in 
spending pressures were incurred by the Department of 
Corrections from a failure to secure the reductions in force 
(RIF) required by the closure of Lorton Correctional Facility. 
The Federal Corrections Trustee recommended that the Department 
of Corrections begin the RIF process in fiscal year 2001 and 
the Department committed to completing the process by September 
30, 2001. However, the Director of the Department of 
Corrections did not begin the RIF process until March, 2002, 
exacerbating shortfalls in the Department. In addition, the 
delay in RIFs did not prevent the eventual settlements for 
those employees.
Fiscal year 2002 Revenue Shortfall
    The Committee is concerned that the District's individual 
income tax revenue was down by $130,000,000, and that business 
income taxes were also down by $21,700,000 for fiscal year 
2002. Though certain one-time revenues have offset the loss, 
the District must overcome a reduction of $75,000,000 in 
revenue. The Committee commends the Chief Financial Officer of 
the District of Columbia for prompt notification of Congress 
regarding the reduction in local source revenues and proposed 
remedies. The Committee supports the Chief Financial Officer's 
proposal to address the majority of this shortfall with savings 
from District-wide adherence to a very strict expenditure 
budget for the remainder of this fiscal year. However, a plan 
of action to address both revenue shortfalls and spending 
pressures must be forthcoming.
    The Committee directs the Mayor and the Chairman of the 
Council of the District of Columbia to submit a plan to address 
the current projected revenue shortfall no later than September 
1, 2002. This plan shall also include any modifications to the 
fiscal year 2003 District of Columbia local funds budget that 
will be necessary due to reduced revenue projections.
    The District is not alone in facing major budgetary 
pressures. The District has experienced a 13.2 percent fall in 
overall individual income tax collections through the month of 
May, compared to a decline of 7.7 percent for Virginia and 6.9 
percent for Maryland. However, the individual income tax 
collections for States across the United States experienced a 
20.3 percent decline over the same period. The Nelson A. 
Rockefeller Institute of Government's State Revenue Report of 
June 2002 noted that real underlying State tax revenue declined 
9.5 percent, the worst decline in at least 11 years. In 
addition, personal income tax revenue in January-March 2002 
declined by 14.3 percent, the third straight quarter of 
decline.
Use of Reserve Funds
    The Committee notes that the District has expended all but 
$3,000,000 of the budgeted reserve fund in fiscal year 2002. 
The Committee commends the District for fully funding the 
emergency and contingency reserves, ahead of the 
congressionally mandated schedule, totaling $275,000,000 in 
local funds to ensure their availability for potential rainy 
day requirements. The District was not immune to the overall 
economic slow-down in fiscal year 2002, and the Committee is 
pleased that the District was able to utilize reserves to 
address spending pressures. However, the Committee is concerned 
that spending from the reserve funds should not replace 
accurate revenue estimating and budgeting for each agency. 
District agencies should not depend on the reserves to address 
spending pressures. Reductions in spending must occur to 
maintain long-term economic security.
Fiscal year 2003 Reductions
    The Committee is aware that the District of Columbia's 
proposed fiscal year 2003 local-funds budget reflects difficult 
choices made by the locally elected leaders of the District 
government to maintain a balanced budget. The Mayor and Council 
agreed upon a wide-ranging number of reductions including 
scaling back of capital projects, limitations on overtime 
available to emergency workers, reductions in affordable 
housing funds, to cutbacks in personnel. The District was 
required to make these choices, along with many other cities 
and States across the country. However, the Committee is 
concerned about the impact of reductions on city services, and 
intends to monitor the District's balance between financial 
stability and providing adequate services and infrastructure.
    The District of Columbia has reduced its capital budget by 
approximately $230,000,000 in the proposed fiscal year 2003 
local-funds budget. The Committee recognizes the difficult 
choices the District made in fiscal year 2003 in an attempt to 
prevent an increase in the city's debt per capita ratio and 
provide stability to the District's bond ratings. However, in 
spite of difficult choices made by the local government, the 
Committee continues to be concerned that the District's long-
term debt structure is still feeling the effects of the 
financial crisis of the early 1990's. The Committee 
acknowledges that the District has executed several debt 
refinancings since 1997, resulting in savings to the District's 
debt services costs of over $25,000,000. The Committee 
encourages the District to continue to monitor and report to 
Congress on efforts to lower its outstanding debt.
    The Committee recognizes that in 2002, the Mayor and 
Council agreed upon modifications to the Tax Parity Act of 1999 
that will maintain the original targeted annual tax reduction 
with new triggering mechanisms and adjustments to the reduction 
in each bracket. The Committee commends the District for making 
reasonable adjustments to prevent detrimental revenue 
shortfalls while maintaining a commitment to tax reduction for 
District residents. In addition, the Committee commends the 
Council's action to limit rising expenditures to 4 percent for 
the fiscal year 2004 budget.

                            PUBLIC EDUCATION

    As with every city and state in America, the stability of 
the economic future of the District depends, in great part, on 
its ability to provide a quality education to its children. 
Congress recently enacted one of the most sweeping education 
reform since 1965. The Committee urges the Superintendent of 
the District Public Schools to begin to implement programs that 
are consistent with the goals espoused by the reform: 
accountability for results, increased investments that get to 
the classrooms, smaller classes, increased local control, 
increasing numbers of qualified teachers, improved early 
childhood education and research-based literacy programs. 
Several of these concepts are reflected in both the Mayor's 
budget and the D.C. Superintendent's Plan for Reform. The 
Committee recommendation includes significant investments in 
charter school development, to support this important model in 
the District. The Committee intends that the projects funded 
under this bill will supplement, not supplant, the efforts of 
the District to improve performance in their schools. In 
addition, the Committee joins in the District's concern about 
the increasing need for highly qualified teachers and commends 
the Superintendent for continuing efforts in this regard.
Special Education
    On October 2, 2001, the President appointed a Special 
Commission to recommend reforms to improve America's special 
education system and move it from a culture of compliance to a 
culture of accountability for results. After almost a year of 
study and public hearings, the Commission reported that while 
IDEA has gone a long way toward bringing children with 
disabilities out of the shadows and into our classrooms, there 
is room for improvement. Specifically, the Commission found 
that 80 percent of those identified with ``specific learning 
disabilities'' are labeled this way simply because they were 
never properly taught to read. What's more, they found that 
minority, particularly low-income children are over represented 
in special education categories.
    The findings of the President's Special Commission provide 
a solid foundation on which to build real reform. Armed with 
the information gained from the public hearings, Members of 
Congress can use the upcoming reauthorization to make America's 
education system, special education or otherwise, into a system 
that aspires to excellence. District of Columbia public schools 
certainly stand to benefit from the reforms suggested by the 
findings of this report. The Committee hopes that DCPS will 
take advantage of the information gained and the upcoming 
reauthorization process to ensure that the special education 
system in D.C. is first on the list of model programs.
    In 1999, a District Court assigned a special master to 
monitor the District's performance in providing for its special 
education students. Soon after Federal intervention, the 
Council of the District of Columbia's Special Council Committee 
on Special Education conducted a study of the flaws in the 
District's delivery of special education services. Among the 
recommendations contained in an unreleased draft report by the 
Special Council were the following: that DCPS strengthen the 
commitment to provide adequate and qualified staff in the 
delivery of special education services; that the DCPS improve 
the management of transportation costs and the dependability of 
transportation services; and that the DCPS improve the process 
to assess and place students with special needs.
    The Committee continues to be concerned that a consensus 
strategy to address the problems in the delivery of special 
education services, particularly assessment and transportation 
services, has not been developed.
    The District of Columbia operating budget for fiscal year 
2003 includes a new initiative to reallocate $27,000,000 of 
debt service savings during fiscal year 2003 and fiscal year 
2004 to the Special Education and Medicaid Reform Fund. The 
Committee is encouraged that these funds are available to the 
District of Columbia Public Schools once the Superintendent 
submits a savings plan to the Mayor equaling $27,000,000 over 
the next 5 years. The Committee supports this approach and is 
pleased to see that the savings plan must be approved by the 
Special Education Taskforce and certified by the Chief 
Financial Officer to ensure that true savings will be achieved. 
The Committee supports the effort of the Mayor and Council to 
reform public education through achievement and savings. The 
Committee encourages the Mayor and the Special Education 
Taskforce to solicit outside reviews of the savings plan from 
best practices experts in other jurisdictions.
    The Committee applauds the Mayor and Council for their 
commitment to reform by requiring a multi-year financial plan 
and performance goals for Special Education for fiscal years 
2003 through 2006. The Committee encourages the Mayor and 
Council to tie funding for Special Education reform to the 
performance goals agreed upon by the locally elected leaders.
Infrastructure Development
    The Mayor of the District of Columbia requested 
$237,650,000 in Federal funding to invest in critical 
infrastructure and supplement a few select city services. The 
requested funding would support nineteen different projects, of 
which ten projects are on-going and supported by local funds in 
the District of Columbia operating budget. The other nine 
projects are new initiatives in which the Mayor sees a Federal 
role (i.e. a traditional Federal relationship or considered a 
``state-level'' cost).
    The Committee recommends $97,100,000 above the President's 
request for investments in infrastructure in the District of 
Columbia, including charter school facility loans, creation of 
an interoperable communications system, and revitalization of 
the Anacostia Waterfront. The Committee recommendation is 
$107,550,000 less than the Mayor of the District of Columbia

    A total of $2,536,331,000 in Federal funds are estimated to 
be available to the District government, the D.C. Courts, the 
D.C. Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency, and other 
District of Columbia entities. A total of $517,000,000 of 
Federal funds is included in this bill. A total of 
$2,019,331,000 in Federal funds will be received by the 
District government from the various Federal grant programs. In 
addition, Federal reimbursements are received from such 
programs as Medicaid and Medicare.
    The following table summarizes the various Federal funds 
estimated to be available to the District government during 
fiscal year 2003:

   Federal Payment for District of Columbia Resident Tuition Support

    The Committee recommends $17,000,000 in Federal funds for 
the District of Columbia Tuition Assistance Program. Initial 
funding of $17,000,000 for this program was included in the 
Fiscal Year 2000 Appropriations Act. On November 12, 1999, 
Public Law 106-98, the District of Columbia College Access Act 
of 1999, was signed into law. The Act established the Tuition 
Assistance Program, a scholarship fund under the direction of 
the Mayor of the District of Columbia, in consultation with the 
Secretary of Education.
    Under the Act, scholarships are awarded to District 
residents for undergraduate education within 3 years of 
graduation or getting a graduate equivalent degree [GED]. The 
applicant must be a District resident for 12 consecutive months 
before the academic year of the award. Scholarships pay the 
difference between in-State and out-of-State tuition, with a 
cap of $10,000 per student per school year, at public 
universities. Scholarships may also be used for tuition at 
private colleges in the metropolitan area and at private 
Historically Black Colleges and Universities anywhere in 
Maryland or Virginia, with a cap of $2,500 per student per 
year. In addition, the District of Columbia College Access 
Improvement Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-157) expanded the 
Tuition Assistance Program to individuals who enroll in an 
institution of higher education more than 3 years after 
graduating from a secondary school and to individuals who 
attend private, historically black colleges and universities 
nationwide.
    In addition to expanding the number of students served by 
the D.C. Tuition Assistance grant program, the Committee urges 
the Mayor and the City Council to look for ways to further 
develop public/private partnerships, such as the existing one 
with the D.C. College Access Program, as such partnerships can 
dramatically increase access to college.

           Federal Payment to the District of Columbia Courts

    The Revitalization Act requires that, commencing in fiscal 
year 1998, the Federal Government finance the D.C. courts, 
including the operations of the D.C. Court of Appeals, Superior 
Court, and the court system. Beginning with the fiscal year 
1999 appropriations act, the Federal Government also provided 
funds for capital improvements. By law, the annual budget 
includes estimates of the expenditures for the operations of 
the courts prepared by the Joint Committee on Judicial 
Administration and the President's recommendation for funding 
the courts' operations.
    The President's recommended level for fiscal year 2003 is 
$159,045,000, which includes $127,394,000 for the courts 
operations; $31,651,000, to remain available until September 
30, 2004, for capital improvements for District courthouse 
facilities.

D.C. Courts Budget Request

    The D.C. Court system submitted a budget request totaling 
$181,416,000 in Federal funds for fiscal year 2003. The 
operations request of $131,064,000 exceeds the President's 
proposed operations budget by $3,670,000 and would be used for 
superior court staffing, equipment and program requests. The 
capital request of $50,352,000 exceeds the President's proposed 
capital budget by $18,701,000, of which $12,100,000 would be 
used for the restoration and renovation of the Old Courthouse 
as the new D.C. Court of Appeals, $16,068,000 for creation of 
Family Court space within the existing courthouse facilities 
and the balance for ongoing capital projects.

Committee Recommendation for Operations

    The President's budget proposal recommends $127,394,000 for 
the court's operations. The Courts requested $131,064,000 for 
operations, which includes $13,596,000 for the Family Court of 
the Superior Court. The Committee recommends $130,992,000 for 
the courts' operations, of which $15,096,000 is to support 
reform of the Family Court through the hiring of additional 
judges, magistrates, clerks and the necessary support staff. 
The Committee has also included a new Guardian ad litem program 
to improve the processing of child abuse and neglect cases in 
the District of Columbia Superior Court.

Committee Recommendation for Capital Budget

    The President's budget proposal recommends $31,651,000, to 
remain available until September 30, 2004, for capital 
improvements for District courthouse facilities. The Courts 
requested $50,352,000 for infrastructure. The Committee 
recommends $42,201,000 for capital improvements to District 
courthouse facilities, of which $16,068,000 is for renovation 
of the Moultrie Courthouse and Buildings A and B to accommodate 
the expansion of the Family Court. Also included in the 
Committee's recommendation is $12,000,000 to prevent further 
deterioration of the Old Courthouse and for a design to begin 
renovation of the building. An additional $14,133,000 is for 
health improvements and maintenance of courthouse facilities.

Family Court

    The President's request supports the entire Family Court 
budget for fiscal year 2003 and is included in the normal 
operations and capital accounts for the Courts. The Courts 
budget includes $13,596,000 for operating costs of the Family 
Court, reflecting a $6,782,000 increase over fiscal year 2002 
to implement the necessary increases in staffing. The 
President's request supports $16,068,000 for Capital 
improvements to be used for continued creation of a family-
friendly court (including the continued installation and 
operation of the Family Court module of the Integrated Justice 
Information System). This amount is approximately the same as 
was dedicated to Family Court capital improvements in fiscal 
year 2002 ($16,673,000). The Committee notes that the funding 
provided to the Family Court in fiscal year 2002 was not 
available to the Courts until June 24, 2002, as required by 
specific language in the fiscal year 2002 District of Columbia 
Appropriations Act (Public Law 107-96 115; Stat. 929). The 
Committee supports the President's recommendation for the 
Family Court and adds $1,500,000 for a Guardian ad litem 
Program, described below. The total Committee recommendation 
for the Family Court is $31,164,000 in fiscal year 2003.

Guardian ad Litem Program

    The Committee recommends an increase of $1,500,000 above 
the President's request to establish the Guardian ad Litem 
Program, to be administered by the District of Columbia 
Superior Court, to provide guardians ad litem to abused and 
neglected children. The Program will develop the capacity to 
improve the quality, training and recruitment of guardians ad 
litem to abused and neglected children. In establishing the 
program, the Courts shall enter into a contract with a non-
profit organization to improve the quality of guardian ad litem 
representation to abused and neglected children. The Courts 
shall use the funds provided to establish the infrastructure to 
support a permanent guardian ad litem program operating in 
close coordination with the D.C. Courts. The Courts may use 
these funds in support of the necessary recruitment and 
training programs, supervision, technology and facilities to 
support the establishment of the program. In addition, the 
Committee encourages the Courts and the non-profit organization 
to examine the program's ability to represent foster parents 
and relative caregivers in child welfare cases.
    The Committee is concerned that the Family Court of the 
Superior Court of the District of Columbia is facing a shortage 
of lawyers qualified to represent children in abuse and neglect 
cases. The Committee also believes that the court also needs to 
improve the quality of representation and ensure that a capable 
and qualified group of lawyers continue to embark on careers 
representing children in abuse and neglect cases.
    The current procedure involves paying individual 
practitioners on an hourly basis to represent children. This 
system has several shortcomings, including a lack of 
supervision and accountability, lack of prestige, and lack of 
professional support and training for attorneys.
    As the Superior Court implements the new Family Court, 
works to improve compliance with the Adoptions and Safe 
Families Act, and sets attorney practice standards in 
compliance with the Family Court Act of 2001, it is imperative 
that these problems be addressed quickly.
    The Committee understands that the Superior Court is 
interested in implementing a mixed system of representation--
one in which an organization provides representation to a 
significant percentage of children and individual practitioners 
represent the remaining children. An organization that can 
provide supervision and training to its own staff attorneys and 
that can provide training and technical assistance to 
individual practitioners will raise the standard of practice in 
the Family Court.
    The Committee understands that the cost of providing the 
organizational support to a mixed system of representation 
involves more than simply hiring lawyers to represent children. 
In order for the court to get the necessary accountability, 
high quality of representation and assistance in supporting and 
recruiting sole practitioners, the court needs to invest in the 
infrastructure that will allow for long-lasting change. 
Therefore, the Committee has included additional appropriations 
to ensure that the organization builds the capacity to 
represent children in future years.

Administration of Justice in Courtroom Operations

    The Court has requested $3,670,000 above the President's 
request to enhance court-wide support staff, training and 
support. The Committee recommends an increase of $2,098,000 and 
28 FTE above the President's request to improve the efficiency 
of the operations of the Court. The D.C. Courts staffing level 
per courtroom is considerably lower than best practice 
standards, which impacts the fair and expeditious adjudication 
of cases. The Committee has received testimony that the lack of 
support staff slows case processing and the accessibility of 
information to District residents. Investments made in the 
fiscal year 2001 District of Columbia Appropriations Act to 
provide pay parity among the D.C. Courts' non-judicial 
employees and the Federal non-judicial employees has resulted 
in a significant reduction in turnover, from 10.92 percent to 
5.52 percent annually.
    The Committee recommendation builds upon this investment. 
In addition, the Court has undertaken several new 
responsibilities without additional resources. In particular, 
the Committee recommendation supports the efforts of the 
Domestic Violence Unit to improve services; the expansion of 
the juvenile probation monitoring program; effective 
maintenance of facilities; and improved financial management. 
The Committee recommends the following allocation of the 
increase of $2,098,000 above the President's budget:
    The Committee recommends an increase of $840,000 and 12 FTE 
for courtroom operations and support of the Domestic Violence 
Unit, Criminal Division, and Appeals Court. In particular, the 
increases for the Domestic Violence Unit will operate the 
Multi-Door Dispute Resolution Program and coordinate the 
calendars for judges, attorneys, and social workers to maintain 
the One Judge-One Family model.
    The Committee recommends an increase of $321,000 and 6 FTE 
above the President's request to improve financial management 
in the Court System and to oversee the management of timely 
voucher payments to Defender Services court-appointed 
attorneys. This function, previously managed by the Public 
Defender Service, was taken over by the Courts in 2002 to 
centralize the payment of court-appointed attorneys.
    The Committee recommends an increase of $382,000 and 6 FTE 
above the President's request for the Court System to improve 
the management of courthouse facilities. This increase supports 
a project director for the Old Courthouse restoration, a 
general project manager for all facilities improvements, and 
four engineer/mechanics to improve maintenance of the Courts.
    The Committee recommends an increase of $154,000 and 2 FTE 
above the President's request to expand court wide technology 
and ensure adequate support staff for information technology.
    The Committee recommends an increase of $401,000 and 2 FTE 
above the President's request for the Social Services Division 
of the Superior Court to continue a successful grant-started 
Probation Monitoring program to monitor high-risk juveniles on 
probation. In addition, this increase will provide for two 
initiatives to improve the operation and standing of the court: 
accreditation with the American Psychological Association; and 
technical assistance for evaluation of Juvenile Probation 
Program.

Committee Recommendation for Capital Improvements

    The Committee recommends an increase of $10,550,000 above 
the President's budget to enhance Capital Improvements, to be 
allocated as follows:
    The Committee recommends an increase of $4,050,000 above 
the President's request to accelerate general repair projects 
in courthouse facilities. The President's budget supports 
$12,400,000 of the Court's request of $22,400,000 to accelerate 
general repair projects and upgrade infrastructure throughout 
courthouse facilities. The Committee recommendation provides 
$1,300,000 more than the President's request for general repair 
projects and $2,750,000 more than the President's request for 
heating, ventilation, air conditioning, electrical and plumbing 
improvements that must take place before other construction may 
begin.
    The Committee recommends this investment in courthouse 
facilities so that additional investments in new capital, such 
as the Family Court building and the Old Courthouse, are built 
upon a solid infrastructure base with adequate maintenance 
capacity. A recent General Services Administration (GSA) 
evaluation identified numerous capital projects that need to be 
completed immediately to bring the Courts' facilities up to 
basic standards for safety and functionality. GSA updated the 
last assessment of facilities, completed in 1995 by the D.C. 
Department of Public Works before the Courts came under Federal 
control. GSA found that many of the repairs and maintenance 
recommended in 1995, have not been completed. The Committee is 
supportive of, and intends to work with the courts to provide 
adequate resources to address: the restoration of historic 
buildings, such as the Old Courthouse; creation of a new, 
state-of-the art Family Court building; and investments in 
basic infrastructure.

Old Courthouse Rehabilitation

    Restoration of the Old Courthouse at 451 Indiana Avenue is 
an 8-year, approximately $60,000,000 project that began in 
1998. The project will enable the Courts to readapt this 
historic structure to house the District of Columbia Court of 
Appeals, thereby alleviating the critical space shortage for 
the Superior Court in the Moultrie Courthouse, while protecting 
the integrity of this historic structure. The Old Courthouse, 
which was constructed from 1820 to 1849, is listed on the 
National Register of Historic Places. It has also been 
designated an Official Project of Save America's Treasures, a 
partnership between the White House Millennium Council and the 
National Trust for Historic Preservation dedicated to 
celebration and preservation of the nation's threatened 
cultural treasures.
    In addition, the National Law Enforcement Memorial has been 
granted legislative authority to construct a museum on a 
portion of the site. The Courts are working with the Memorial 
to coordinate construction plans.
    The Committee recommends $12,000,000 for the restoration of 
the Old Courthouse. The Committee provided funds in fiscal year 
2002 to help prevent further deterioration of the structure; 
permit removal of asbestos and other hazardous materials; 
finance historical significance and other studies; and fund the 
first stage of detailed design work and project management 
costs.
    The Committee recommends $5,000,000 above the President's 
request for restoration of the Old Courthouse to continue the 
restoration and re-adaptive use of the Old Courthouse. These 
funds will nearly fully fund construction in fiscal year 2003. 
The Congress supported this initiative in fiscal year 2002 with 
$4,700,000 from unobligated Defender Services balances to begin 
design and remediation work. The restoration of the Old 
Courthouse is integral to the expansion of the Family Court, as 
services will move from the Moultrie Building to the Old 
Courthouse as space becomes available.
    This investment will improve efficiencies by co-locating 
the offices that support the Court of Appeals and by providing 
some 37,000 sq. ft. of critically needed space for Superior 
Court functions in the existing Moultrie Courthouse. Built in 
1978 for 44 trial judges. The courthouse now houses 59 trial 
judges and 15 hearing commissioners in the Superior Court, 9 
judges in the D.C. Court of Appeals, additional Senior Judges 
in both Courts, and additional administrative support staff. 
Clearly, the main courthouse is filled beyond capacity. In 
addition, the Committee recommends a net increase of 18 new 
staff to strengthen the Family Court and improve case 
processing. It is necessary for the Courts to begin the process 
this year of creating a dedicated Family Court space in or near 
the District court facilities, as required in the Family Court 
Reform Act of 2001. The Committee directs the Courts to report 
to the Congress on the expenditure of this year's appropriation 
for Family Court reforms and capital investments by June 1, 
2003. In this report, the Committee seeks an analysis of the 
expenditure of funding to meet the requirements of the D.C. 
Family Court Reform Act of 2001.

Integrated Justice Information System

    The Committee recommends $4,220,000 for the Courts to 
continue implementation of the Integrated Justice Information 
System, which is $1,500,000 above the President's request. The 
Committee is encouraged by the progress the Courts have made in 
developing a detailed plan for integrating the 18 different 
computer systems necessary to track offender information and 
swiftly adjudicate cases. The Committee directs the Courts to 
coordinate information systems with entities in the District of 
Columbia, especially the D.C. Child and Family Services Agency 
and the Metropolitan Police Department. The Committee is 
encouraged that the General Accounting Office's evaluation of 
the IJIS Plan determined IJIS would be effective in increasing 
the quality and efficiency of court operations, once 
implemented. The Committee intends to continue closely 
monitoring the implementation of IJIS, as it is critical to 
efficient case processing, and ensuring fair, swift, and 
accessible justice.

Quarterly Apportionments

    The Committee directs that the first quarter payment by the 
Treasury to the courts shall be 30 percent of the Courts' 
budget, exclusive of payments for the capital account and the 
pension account. An increased first quarter apportionment will 
accommodate the Courts' large contracts for software licenses, 
janitorial and other services, that require funds to be 
obligated at the beginning of the fiscal year.

Transfer Authority

    The Committee authorizes the Courts to transfer up to 
$1,000,000 between entities within the Federal Payment to the 
District of Columbia Courts account. This flexibility will be 
especially important in implementing Family Court reforms.

Reporting requirements

    The courts are directed to submit monthly reports, through 
the General Services Administration, to the Senate and House 
Committees on Appropriations, within 15 calendar days after the 
end of each month, on the status of obligations by object class 
and a monthly personnel summary by position, full-time 
equivalent positions (FTE's), and program/function. The 
obligation report should show, at a minimum, the original 
operating plan, current operating plan, obligations year to 
date, percent obligated, planned obligations year to date, 
percentage deviation from plan year to date, projected total 
obligations end of year, and projected surplus/deficit.
    In addition, the obligation report shall: (1) under the 
Court System Spending Plan, include a breakdown of expenditures 
for the Counsel for Child Abuse and Neglect Program and the 
program of representation of indigents in criminal cases under 
the Criminal Justice Act; (2) include a monthly breakdown of 
expenditures for the District of Columbia courts' capital 
improvements; and (3) where year-to-date obligations exceed or 
fall below the plan estimates by 1 percent or more, include an 
explanation of why a category is over- or under-budgeted.

D.C. courts capital expenditures

    The Committee directs OMB to report to the Committee during 
fiscal year 2003 on any capital improvements to the District's 
courthouse facilities. The report shall: (1) identify the 
facility undergoing improvement; (2) include a complete 
description of the project to be undertaken; (3) itemize each 
improvement, renovation, or service and its cost; (4) include 
the contracting date, contracting party, and a timeline for the 
completion of each contracted improvement, renovation, or 
service; and (5) identify any design studies for which funding 
is sought.

            Defender Services in District of Columbia Courts

    The Committee recommends $37,000,000 for attorney programs 
for indigent defendants, child abuse and guardianship cases 
administered by the District of Columbia Courts. The 
President's request of $32,000,000 maintains the current rates 
for attorneys and investigators.
    The D.C. Court request of $45,014,000 consists of: (1) 
$31,355,000 for the Criminal Justice Act [CJA] program; (2) 
$12,661,000 for the Counsel for Child Abuse and Neglect [CCAN] 
program; and (3) $988,000 for the Guardianship program.
    The Office of Defender Services request includes an 
additional $13,014,000 in Federal funds, not requested by the 
President, for an increase in the hourly rate paid to attorneys 
and investigators in the CJA and CCAN Programs from $65 per 
hour to $90 per hour. The Committee requests that the District 
of Columbia courts provide quarterly reports to the Committees 
on Appropriations of the Senate and the House of 
Representatives on obligations from and remaining unobligated 
balances of the Defender Services account.

Defender Services Rate Increase

    The Committee recommends an increase of $5,000,000 above 
the President's request to increase the hourly rate of Defender 
Services attorneys from $65 per hour to $75 per hour. Court-
appointed attorneys provide constitutionally mandated 
assistance of legal counsel to the District's indigent 
defendants. Promoting equity in the quality of legal services 
provided to District of Columbia residents, regardless of 
economic status, is vitally important to the fair 
administration of justice. It is particularly challenging to 
the D.C. Courts in light of the considerably higher hourly 
rates paid in the nearby Federal court ($90 per hour). The 
Federal hourly rate is currently 39 percent higher for 
attorneys. Therefore, the Committee recommends an increase to 
$75 per hour in fiscal year 2003. The recommended increase 
would allow the D.C. Courts to provide a more attractive rate 
for both attorneys and investigators, especially needed 
considering local economic conditions.
    Court-appointed attorneys in the Counsel for Child Abuse 
and Neglect [CCAN] serve in family proceedings in which child 
abuse or neglect is alleged, or where the termination of the 
parent-child relationship is under consideration and the 
parent, guardian, or custodian of the child is indigent. The 
assistance of these attorneys is essential to the Courts' 
effort to ensure that vulnerable children are well represented 
in Court and that they are placed in stable, permanent homes 
expeditiously. The proposed rated increase would help attract 
qualified attorneys to the program and support reform of the 
Family Court.

D.C. Courts Administrative Provisions

    The Committee recommends an Administrative Provision to 
increase the hourly rate paid to court-appointed attorneys 
representing indigent defendants in the District of Columbia 
from $65 per hour to $75 per hour. In addition, the Committee 
recommends an increase from $75 per hour to $90 per hour on 
October 1, 2003, to match the rate currently paid to Federal 
attorneys.
    The Committee recommends a provision to allow employees of 
the District of Columbia Courts to enroll in the Federal long-
term care insurance program, consistent with other Federal 
benefits provided to D.C. Courts employees. Long term care 
insurance is available to other quasi-Federal agencies and to 
other District agencies under Federal oversight pursuant to the 
National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government Improvement 
Act of 1997, the Court Services and Offender Supervision 
Agency.
    The Committee recommends a modification to the 
administration of outreach activities under the District's 
Crime Victims Compensation Fund. The Committee recommends that 
funds designated for outreach activities shall be deposited 
into the Crime Victims Assistance Fund, rather than be paid to 
the Mayor. This provision will allow the District of Columbia 
to immediately begin implementing programs designated for 
victims outreach.
    The Committee recommends that fines collected by the 
Superior Court of the District of Columbia in Driving Under the 
Influence (``DUI'') and Driving While Impaired (``DWI'') cases 
be transferred to the District of Columbia Office of the 
Corporation Counsel to enhance the prosecution of these cases. 
The Superior Court of the District of Columbia will continue to 
collect fines in criminal cases under the District's traffic 
alcohol laws and be deposited into the Crime Victims 
Compensation Fund. The Committee does not recommend making this 
provision retroactive, as requested by the District, but does 
support increasing the District's capacity to prosecute ``DUI'' 
and ``DWI'' cases effectively.
    Drunken driving offenses accounted for over 30 percent of 
the approximately 12,000 criminal cases the General Crimes 
Section papered in fiscal year 2001. This represents a 
staggering caseload for each of the eight attorneys who 
prosecute. Additionally, with the implementation of the 
Community Court Project, the attorneys in the General Crimes 
Section have been given more work than ever before. Meeting 
these additional demands, while maintaining prosecutorial 
intensity in drunken driving cases, necessitates the transfer 
of funds.

 Federal Payment to the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency 
                      for the District of Columbia

    The Revitalization Act established the Court Services and 
Offender Supervision Agency [CSOSA] for the District of 
Columbia to assume the functions of the District's pretrial 
services, adult probation, parole, and adult offender 
supervision functions. CSOSA was certified as an independent 
Executive Branch agency on August 4, 2000, ending a 3-year 
period of trusteeship.
    The Revitalization Act relieved the District of Columbia of 
``state-level'' financial responsibilities and restructured a 
number of criminal justice functions, including pretrial 
services, parole, and adult probation. Following passage of the 
Revitalization Act, under the direction of a Trustee appointed 
by the U.S. Attorney General, three separate and disparately 
functioning entities of the District of Columbia government 
were reorganized into one Federal agency. CSOSA assumed its 
probation function from the D.C. Superior Court and its parole 
function from the D.C. Board of Parole. The Revitalization Act 
transferred the parole supervision functions to CSOSA and the 
parole decision-making functions to the U.S. Parole Commission 
(USPC). On August 5, 1998, the parole determination function 
was transferred to the USPC, and on August 4, 2000, the USPC 
assumed responsibility for parole revocation and modification 
with respect to felons. The CSOSA appropriation is comprised of 
three components: The Community Supervision Program (CSP), the 
District of Columbia Pretrial Services Agency (PSA), and the 
Public Defender Service (PDS) for the District of Columbia. PDS 
is a federally funded independent D.C. agency responsible for 
the defense of indigent individuals and receives funding by 
transfer from the CSOSA appropriation. The CSP is responsible 
for supervision of offenders (either on probation or parole), 
and the PSA is responsible for supervising pretrial defendants.
    The Committee recommends $154,707,000 for fiscal year 2003 
for CSOSA. The Committee does not recommend the amount 
associated with Federal employee retirement costs, $7,218,000.
    The funding provided will enable CSOSA to enhance its 
community-based and sanctions-based supervision strategy and 
support the fair administration of justice by providing the 
courts and the U.S. Parole Commission with timely, accurate and 
complete information required in their decision-making process. 
The Committee recommendation also includes transfers to the 
D.C. Pretrial Services Agency for the D.C. Public Defender 
Service.
    The mission of CSOSA for the District of Columbia is to 
increase public safety, prevent crime, reduce recidivism, and 
support the fair administration of justice in close 
collaboration with the community.
    The Community Supervision Program's operations focus on 
using proven best practices to improve offender supervision and 
reduce recidivism. Caseloads have been reduced and officers 
relocated to community field offices to facilitate close 
supervision. Every offender is assessed to determine both risk 
to public safety and need for treatment and other 
interventions. Conditions of release are enforced through drug 
testing, home and work monitoring visits, and other means. A 
system of graduated sanctions is being put in place to meet 
every violation with a swift and appropriate response. There is 
some evidence that these initiatives are beginning to work. For 
example, parolee re-arrests sustained a 67 percent drop from 
May 1998 through the end of 2000.
    The Committee notes with concern that the 1997 District of 
Columbia Revitalization Act shifted the responsibility for D.C. 
parolees to the United States Parole Commission (USPC). 
Subsequently, the 1998 Phase-Out Act terminates the USPC by 
November of 2002. Additionally, the Committee notes that the 
government of the District of Columbia has proposed several 
modifications to the current structure of criminal justice 
functions performed by Federal agencies as a result of the 1997 
District of Columbia Revitalization Act. The Committee requests 
that the District of Columbia, the Court Services and Offender 
Supervision Agency, and the United States Parole Commission 
submit a plan, to the President and Committees on 
Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives 
no later than February 3, 2003, for the continuation of the 
parole determination, parole revocation, and parole 
modification functions with respect to District of Columbia 
resident adult sentenced felons, currently performed by the 
United States Parole Commission, by the appropriate, 
authorized, Federal entity. The intent of the Revitalization 
Act was to relieve the District of the responsibility of parole 
decision-making functions and vested parole supervision 
functions in the Court Services and Offender Supervision 
Agency. The continuation of these responsibilities is 
imperative to effective criminal justice in the District of 
Columbia. The USPC currently faces a backlog to process cases 
efficiently with only 15 case examiners to supervise 9,000 D.C. 
inmates and over 4,000 Federal inmates. The USPC and CSOSA 
estimate that the current population of 3,300 active D.C. 
parolees will grow to 3,800 next year, and continue to expand, 
with no corresponding expansion of Agency supervision or 
halfway house bed space.
    The fiscal year 2002 appropriation provided $147,300,000, 
including $34,773,000 in program increases, for CSOSA. 
Resources were provided to build agency infrastructure, 
establish and improve mission critical programs, enhance drug 
testing and sanctions-based treatment, improve supervision of 
pre-trial defendants and post conviction offenders, expand 
intermediate sanctions and offender reentry programs, to 
continue planning and design proposals for a residential 
sanctions center, and to make improvements in information 
technology.
    Based on the results the Agency has achieved to date and 
the anticipated outcomes expected in the future, the Committee 
is recommending an increase of $7,407,000 over the fiscal year 
2002 appropriation for the purpose of funding non-policy 
adjustments to base, improving supervision, drug testing, 
intervention and treatment, including funds for defender 
services program enhancements. The recommendation includes a 
decrease of $13,015,000 from fiscal year 2002 funding received 
for the repair and renovation of the Sanctions and Re-Entry 
Centers and increases of non-policy adjustments to base of 
$5,895,000. The Committee recommends the following program 
changes:
    Supervision.--$8,370,000 and 102 positions to establish a 
new field office east of the Anacostia River, to continue 
reduction of general supervision case loads from 64 to 50, and 
to establish new diagnostic teams and to relocate staff from 
building B of the D.C. Courts.
    Drug Testing.--$2,238,000 and 22 positions to enhance drug 
lab capacity and to establish drug testing collection 
capabilities at the community supervision program's new field 
offices.
    Treatment.--$848,000 and 16 positions to provide and 
additional sanction-based substance abuse treatment.
    Learning Lab and Support.--$464,000, and 8 positions for 
Learning labs to provide literacy training and job placement 
assistance.
    D.C. Pretrial Services Agency.--$1,733,000 and 6 positions 
to reduce supervisor caseload ratios for high-risk felony 
defendants, to complete enhancement of automated case 
management systems, and provide sanctions based substance abuse 
treatment for an additional 400 defendants; and
    Public Defender Service.--$874,000 and 6 positions to 
provide effective legal and rehabilitative transition services 
and to support new initiatives to provide DNA defense expertise 
and parole revocation representation.
    The Committee notes that the District of Columbia has 
undertaken a master plan for the development of Public 
Reservation 13, the former site of the District of Columbia 
General Hospital. The Court Services and Offender Supervision 
Agency currently operates the Assessment and Orientation Center 
(AOC) at Karrick Hall to effect successful reentry of offenders 
into the community. The District's draft master plan 
necessitates the demolition of Karrick Hall to create a 
waterfront park. The Committee understands that a feasability 
study is currently underway to relocate the AOC to the south 
side of Massachusetts Avenue in collaboration with the District 
of Columbia Department of Corrections and the District of 
Columbia Department of Health's Addiction Prevention and 
Recovery Administration. The Committee encourages the District 
to work with CSOSA to determine an appropriate location in the 
master plan for the critical services now provided at Karrick 
Hall. In addition, the Committee strongly encourages the 
District to provide permanent space for CSOSA during the 
interim period while the master plan is under development.

Federal Payment to the District of Columbia for Security Costs Related 
               to the Presence of the Federal Government

    The Committee is aware that the District police, fire, and 
emergency personnel have had to provide security for a number 
of events due to the fact that the District of Columbia is the 
seat of the Federal Government and headquarters of many 
international organizations. Recently, the need for D.C. to 
provide security has increased, thereby increasing over-time 
costs for personnel and pulling police from neighborhood 
patrols. The President has supported reimbursing the District 
for these costs. The Committee recommends $15,000,000 to 
support this fund, while ensuring accountability from the city 
on how the funds are expended.
    The Committee is pleased that the District and the 
Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) have 
agreed upon a plan for ensuring interoperable communications in 
and around Metro Rail tunnels. The Committee encourages the 
District and WMATA to sign the Memorandum of Agreement and 
implement the radio interface system expeditiously.
    The Committee is concerned that security measures taken by 
Federal law enforcement agencies in the District of Columbia 
since September 11, 2001 are unattractive and contribute to a 
sense that the Nation's Capital is an armed fortress. 
Certainly, security is a matter of the highest importance as 
Washington, D.C. remains a prime target for future attacks. 
Security does not have to be unsightly. The National Capital 
Planning Commission (NCPC) Interagency Task Force issued a 
report in October, 2001 entitled ``Designing for Security in 
the Nation's Capital'' which sets forth recommendations for 
developing coordinated urban security design that will maintain 
the city's safety without detracting from its historic beauty. 
The Committee directs the Office of Management and Budget, in 
consultation with the United States Park Police, the National 
Park Service, the Secret Service, the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation, the United States Protective Service, the 
Department of State, and the General Services Administration to 
review the NCPC study and submit a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations in the Senate and the House, no later than 
February 5, 2003, on their plans to improve the appearance of 
security in accordance with the recommendations of the NCPC 
report.

       Federal Payment to the Children's National Medical Center

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $5,000,000 to 
the Children's National Medical Center for capital 
improvements.

          Federal Payment to St. Colleta of Greater Washington

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $2,000,000 
for St. Colleta of Greater Washington for costs associated with 
establishing a school for mentally retarded and multiple-
handicapped adolescents and adults in the District of Columbia.

Federal Payment to the Department of Transportation in the District of 
                                Columbia

    The Committee recommends $1,000,000 included in the 
President's budget, to be used to implement Transportation 
Systems Management initiatives recommended by the National 
Capital Planning Commission (NCPC). The District of Columbia 
and NCPC requested $16,000,000 to implement transportation 
solutions, to alleviate pressure caused by the closure of 
Pennsylvania Avenue.

   Federal Payment to the Chief Financial Officer of the District of 
                                Columbia

    For a Federal payment to the Chief Financial Officer of the 
District of Columbia, $15,000,000 for education, security, 
economic development, and health initiatives in the District of 
Columbia.

    Federal Payment to the District of Columbia for Charter School 
                               Facilities

    The Committee recommends an increase of $20,000,000 for the 
Charter School Credit Enhancement Fund to facilitate the 
purchase, construction and/or renovation of facilities for 
public charter schools in the District of Columbia. These funds 
would add to Federal seed money ($5,000,000) provided in 1996. 
The Mayor requested $5,000,000, however the Committee is 
committed to providing a significant investment in school 
choice in the District. D.C. public schools are consistently 
not providing adequate services to students, particularly in 
Special Education. The Mayor requested $9,000,000 to construct 
Special Education facilities in the District to alleviate some 
of the need for children with special needs to go to schools 
outside of the city. The Committee is supportive of providing 
alternative educational opportunities for to children with 
special needs. The Committee recommends that at least three of 
the loans provided to charter schools contribute to schools 
that educate children with special needs.
    The District of Columbia has over 40 charter schools, the 
most of any public school system in the country. The Committee 
commends the work that these schools are doing in providing 
real choice to District school children and their families. 
Many charter schools, however, are beginning to outgrow their 
current facilities and need more space. Some new charter 
schools have not been able to open because of their inability 
to identify and acquire suitable and affordable facilities. 
This situation is made more difficult by the high cost of real 
estate in the District of Columbia. Charter schools face an 
additional challenge in that many have not been operating long 
enough to establish a sufficient credit history to qualify for 
commercial bank loans. To address this problem, the Committee 
recommends enhancing three charter school initiatives in the 
District of Columbia. The cornerstone of the commitment of 
school choice in the District is the Committee's recommendation 
of $20,000,000 for critical investments in the development of 
charter schools.The Committee recommendation includes 
$5,000,000 for the Credit Enhancement Fund for Public Charter 
Schools to assist schools in securing financing for facilities 
improvements and $10,000,000 to establish a Direct Loan Program 
for Public Charter Schools. In addition, the Committee 
recommendation includes $4,000,000 to supplement the Public 
Charter School per pupil facility allocation in fiscal year 
2003. These funds will be used to set a floor of $1,500 per 
pupil for facilities. Finally, the Committee recommendation 
provides $1,000,000 for the District to establish an Office of 
Charter School Financing to administer the programs described 
above.
    In addition to investments in financing and loans to 
charter schools for the purchase or renovation of facilities, 
as well as the cost of equipment, the Committee recommends two 
initiatives to greatly increase the administration and 
effectiveness of local funds provided to public charter 
schools.
    The Committee recommendation of $4,000,000 to supplement 
the funding available to Public Charter Schools in the District 
of Columbia in fiscal year 2003, is to be used to establish a 
floor of no less than $1,500 per pupil for Charter Schools. The 
Committee is greatly concerned by the continued decline in the 
rate of per pupil allotments given to charter schools to assist 
them with facility maintenance and repair. The Committee 
recognizes that charter schools' ability to secure the private 
financing necessary to sustain their daily operations are 
extremely dependent on their ability to demonstrate a stable 
income and dependable sources of ongoing revenue. The Committee 
encourages the Mayor and Council of the District of Columbia to 
establish a permanent minimum rate of allotment to charter 
schools of $1,500.
    The Committee recommendation of $1,000,000 to be used by 
the District to establish an Office of Charter School Financing 
will increase the efficiency of the administration of charter 
school funds. Currently, the District of Columbia does not 
designate one office to meet the specific needs of charter 
schools seeking financing. The Committee recommends that a new 
Office of Charter School Financing should provide expert 
evaluation of charter school's applications for financing, as 
well as technical assistance to applicants.
    Charter schools may repay the loans with the facilities 
allotment they receive as part of their per-pupil allocation. 
To ensure that these funds are invested in successful charter 
schools, the Committee directs that a charter school submit an 
application demonstrating concrete achievements of the school's 
educational mission and goals.

                       Administrative Provisions


Report to Congress

    The Committee recommends various administrative provisions 
to improve the administration of charter schools; oversight of 
funding provided to promote adoption; and require more strict 
accountability of special education expenditures.
    The Committee requires that the General Accounting Office 
(GAO) will submit a study no later than April 1, 2003 detailing 
the national efforts to establish adequate charter school 
facilities and include recommendations for establishing a 
charter school incubator in the District of Columbia. A charter 
school incubator would house a small number of charter schools 
for up to 4 years of the school's first years in operation. The 
incubator would provide the schools with stable facilities for 
their students while giving school leaders the opportunity to 
identify and acquire permanent facilities. During their tenure 
in the incubator, charter school leaders would receive 
technical assistance on real estate development, equity 
development, fundraising, and guidance on effective school 
management.
    The Committee recommends that GAO consult with the General 
Services Administration and other experts with relevant 
knowledge of the District of Columbia in the following areas: 
real estate development, charter school management, equity 
development and management, banking, municipal finance, and 
education. These experts shall include the Mayor, members of 
the Council, the Chief Financial Officer, the Superintendent of 
the District of Columbia Public Schools, the President of the 
District of Columbia Board of Education, the District of 
Columbia Public Charter School Board, and the District of 
Columbia Charter School Consortium. The report should identify 
and examine any issues relating to charter school incubators 
including, but not limited to: the availability of surplus 
District, Federal, or private buildings that may be suitable 
for incubators; options for private development through 
existing tax incentives, special bonding authority, and other 
programs to encourage private development of public education 
facilities; financing strategies for ongoing incubator 
operations; incubator administration; facility design; legal 
issues; technical assistance needs of charter school officials 
in real estate development and fundraising; selection process 
for charter schools to participate in the incubator; and any 
other issues the GAO identifies. Once the GAO has completed its 
study and issued its report, the Mayor of the District of 
Columbia and the Chairman of the Council of the District of 
Columbia shall develop, in consultation with the Chief 
Financial Officer of the District of Columbia, the 
Superintendent of the District of Columbia Public Schools, the 
President of the District of Columbia Board of Education, the 
District of Columbia Public Charter School Board, and the 
District of Columbia Charter School Consortium, as well as 
representatives of parents, advocacy groups and the private 
sector, a plan for establishing an incubator for charter 
schools in the District of Columbia. The Committee requests 
that this plan be submitted to the Committees on Appropriations 
of the Senate and the House of Representatives no later than 6 
months from the time the GAO report is received by the 
Government of the District of Columbia.

Surplus Buildings

    The Committee recommends that the Mayor of the District of 
Columbia and the Chairman of the Council of the District of 
Columbia, in consultation with the General Services 
Administration, shall conduct an assessment of all buildings 
currently held in surplus and those that might be made 
available within 1 year of the date of enactment of this Act. 
The Committee requires that, within 180 days of enactment, the 
Mayor submit a report to Congress on the findings of the 
assessment along with a plan for occupying at least 50 percent 
of the space available at the time such report is submitted. 
The Committee encourages the District of Columbia to provide 
surplus space to charter schools, consistent with the 
preferences as outlined in the D.C. School Reform Act.

Closure of Low Performing Schools

    The Committee is concerned that several poor performing 
charter schools have not been closed by the District 
government. The Committee strongly supports charter schools, 
especially because of the strict accountability required of 
them. It is imperative that the District government close 
charter schools that are not meeting the education needs of 
students, either through mismanagement or a lack of resources. 
The Committee understands the need for charter school closures 
and encourages such action when necessary and appropriate. 
However, the Mayor shall ensure that the closure process allows 
for detained notice of failures and opportunity to contest or 
remedy such failures. Therefore, the Committee requires that 
the Mayor of the District of Columbia and the Chairman of the 
Council of the District of Columbia report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives 
no later than August 26, 2002 on the status of charter school 
closure. The Committee is seeking a detailed report on the 
actions taken by the District of Columbia Board of Education, 
the District of Columbia Public Charter School Board and the 
District government to close poor performing charter schools in 
the District of Columbia. The Committee is particularly 
concerned by the delays in closure if the local government and 
oversight boards have determined certain charter schools must 
be closed.

Incentives to Promote the Adoption of Children

    The Committee is concerned that funds provided in 1999 to 
the District of Columbia government to promote the adoption of 
children have yet to be expended. The Committee supported the 
extension of the availability of funds in 2000 and the 
expansion of the purpose for which the funds may be used in 
2001. However, the funds have still not met their original 
intent, to increase adoption of children in the foster care 
system in the District of Columbia.
    Therefore, the Committee recommends that the Mayor 
implement and fulfill the following performance measures to 
ensure that the intended services have begun with the ultimate 
goal of markedly improving the lives of the over 9,800 children 
served by the Child and Family Services Agency. Within 9 months 
of the date of enactment of this Act the Mayor must have 
established the following measures: (i) the Chief Financial 
Officer of the District of Columbia shall certify that not less 
than 50 percent of the funds provided for attorney fees and 
home studies have been expended; (ii) the Mayor shall establish 
an outreach program to inform adoptive families and children 
without parents about the scholarship fund established with 
these funds; (iii) the Mayor shall establish the location, 
necessary personnel and mission of the adoptive family resource 
center in the District of Columbia; (iv) the Mayor shall 
identify not less than 25 percent of the eligible children in 
the District of Columbia foster care system with special needs 
and obligate not less than 25 percent of the funds provided in 
Public Law 106-113 (113 Stat. 1501) for adoption incentives and 
support for children with special needs; (v) the Mayor and 
District of Columbia Child and Family Services Agency shall 
increase the number of waiting children listed in their 
adoption photo-listing by 75 percent. In addition, the 
Committee requires that quarterly reports on the expenditure of 
these funds and reporting on the performance of the District in 
implementing the required measures is submitted to the 
Committees on Appropriations of the Senate and the House of 
Representatives.

Special Education Accountability

    The Committee is concerned that a lack of oversight and 
regulation in the District of Columbia has resulted in a 
corruption of the process by which children are assessed for 
special education needs, referred for services to meet those 
educational needs, and represented in legal cases brought 
against the District of Columbia Public Schools under the 
Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The 
Committee is concerned that individuals providing 
representation to children and their parents are referring 
clients to an affiliated diagnostic testing service and 
affiliated special education school, further degrading the 
special education services provide to children in the District 
of Columbia.
    The Committee recommends that the Chief Financial Officer 
of the District of Columbia require disclosure by attorneys in 
IDEA cases of any financial, corporate, legal, board 
memberships, or other relationships with special education 
diagnostic services, schools, or other special education 
service providers before paying any attorneys fees. The Chief 
Financial Officer may also require attorneys in special 
education cases to certify that all services billed in special 
education were rendered. The Committee further recommends that 
the Chief Financial Officer will prepare and submit quarterly 
reports to the Committees on Appropriations of the Senate and 
the House of Representatives on the certifications and the 
amount paid by the government of the District of Columbia, 
including the District of Columbia Public Schools, to attorneys 
in cases brought under IDEA. The Committee's intent is that 
these reports would encompass all services for which attorneys 
receive awards, including those received under a settlement 
agreement or as part of an administrative proceeding, under the 
IDEA from the District of Columbia. The Committee recommends 
that the Inspector General of the District of Columbia conduct 
audits of the certification to ensure attorney compliance. The 
Committee highly recommends that the Council of the District of 
Columbia, in cooperation with the Mayor of the District of 
Columbia and the District of Columbia School Board, develop 
legislation to address conflicts of interest in special 
education cases.

FEDERAL PAYMENT FOR THE ANACOSTIA WATERFRONT INITIATIVE IN THE DISTRICT 
                              OF COLUMBIA

    The Committee recommends $58,000,000 to implement the 
Anacostia Waterfront Initiative. Of this amount, the Committee 
recommends $8,000,000 to be used for development of parks and 
recreation facilities at Kenilworth Park on the Anacostia 
River. The President requested no funds for this activity. The 
Committee is dedicated to partnering with the District to 
develop local and Federal lands for sports and recreation in 
all areas of the city. The Committee intends that funds 
provided under this heading will establish a long-term 
commitment to the creation of clean, safe parks in every 
neighborhood. The Committee encourages the District to promote 
public/private investments that will contribute to parks of 
this kind.
    In addition, the Committee recommends $50,000,000, to be 
matched 100 percent with local funds, for the Water and Sewer 
Authority to implement the Combined Sewer Overflow Program. The 
Authority will begin system upgrades and design work on a new 
system to address combined sewer overflows (CSOs). The combined 
sewer system, serving 33 percent of the District, was 
constructed in 1890 by the Federal Government. The District has 
developed a Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) to deal with 
overflows of sanitary waste and storm-water into the 
surrounding rivers that occur during heavy rains. The overflows 
occur approximately 60-75 times per year.
    The Committee believes that funds provided in fiscal year 
2003 for the Combined Sewer Overflow Program represent a long-
term commitment by the Federal Government to rebuild this 
infrastructure. The Committee expects that D.C. rate payers 
will bear half of the cost of this project. Twenty-four percent 
of the total cost can be attributed to EPA requirements of the 
District; however, EPA will only contribute approximately 13 
percent of the cost to address these requirements. The Federal 
Government represents 17 percent of the usage. The plan totals 
$1,200,000,000 over 15-20 years.
    The Committee recommend this significant investment because 
of the Federal Government's role in building the original 
system and its responsibility to maintain the infrastructure 
that the government uses. This partnership with the District is 
the cornerstone of the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative. The 
Congress has made similar commitments to other areas, such as 
Boston, San Diego, and the United States-Mexico border. The 
scale and cost of this project exemplifies how critical 
infrastructure, starved over the years, is now nearly non-
functional.

         FEDERAL PAYMENT FOR CAPITAL INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommends $15,100,000 to invest in capital 
infrastructure development. Of this amount, $10,000,000 is for 
the creation of an interoperable Unified Communications Center 
to serve as the central communications and command center for 
all D.C. first responders. The President requested no funds. 
The fiscal year 2002 Department of Defense and Emergency 
Supplemental Appropriations Act (Public Law 107-117; 115 Stat. 
2303) provided $9,000,000 to the District for a portion of the 
technology to support this center. This project is already up 
and running and any additional funds will be implemented 
quickly and effectively to expand technology, train staff, and 
renovate facilities.
    In addition, the Committee recommends $100,000 for 
restoration of Eastern Market. The District requested $150,000 
for restoration of Eastern Market. The District is undertaking 
a major renovation and restoration of the historic Eastern 
Market near the Capitol Hill neighborhood. This renovation 
would contribute to the economic development of the 
Pennsylvania Avenue SE corridor and restore an historic 
building.
    The Committee recommends $5,000,000 in fiscal year 2003 for 
the design and construction of a state-of-the art forensic 
laboratory in the District of Columbia. The President requested 
no funds for this purpose. The Committee understands that this 
laboratory will consolidate functions that are critical to the 
investigation of crimes in the city, while reducing the 
District's reliance on Federal entities. Currently, local law 
enforcement personnel often rely on the facilities of the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency 
(DEA), and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) 
when investigating crimes. Aside from diverting space and 
resources from Federal investigators, this reliance on Federal 
facilities results in an increased risk of contamination, poor 
communications, and possible degradation of evidence.
    The Committee also understands that the District's own 
forensics facilities are antiquated and do not meet national 
standards. Ultimately, poor space and equipment impairs the 
quality of evidence gathered by investigators and has been one 
factor in the District's inability to prosecute many violent 
crimes. The Committee expects that the city will bolster this 
Federal contribution with additional local funds so that this 
project will be on a pace for completion by fiscal year 2005.

    FEDERAL PAYMENT TO THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA FOR FAMILY LITERACY

    The Committee recommends $4,000,000 to expand the Family 
Literacy Program in public schools in the District of Columbia. 
The Family Literacy program will address the needs of literacy-
challenged parents while endowing their children with an 
appreciation for literacy and strengthening familial ties. The 
program will be targeted at the District's so-called T-9 public 
schools, identified in the District's initiative to transform 
low-perfroming schools.

                             FEDERAL GRANTS

    The District of Columbia participates as a State, county, 
and city in the various Federal grant programs. At the time the 
fiscal year 2002 budget was submitted, the District estimated 
that it would receive a total of $2,019,330,000 in Federal 
grants during the coming fiscal year.
    The following table shows the amount of Federal grants the 
District expects to receive and the office or agency that 
expects to receive them:

                         Workforce Investments

    The Committee recommends $54,186,000 from local funds for

estimated fiscal impact of compensation increases for fiscal 
year 2001 and fiscal year 2002 for all District employees,

                                Reserve

replacement of funds expended, if any, during fiscal year 2001 
from the Budgeted Reserve established by section 202(j) of the 
District of Columbia Financial Responsibility and Management 
Assistance Act of 1995, Public Law 104-8.

                    Repayment of Loans and Interest

    The bill includes $267,451,000 from local funds for debt

associated with the District's borrowings to finance capital 
project expenditures of general fund agencies.

                Repayment of General Fund Recovery Debt

    The Committee recommends $39,300,000 from local funds for 
Repayment of General Fund Recovery Debt for fiscal year 2003. 
The Repayment of General Fund Recovery Debt represents debt 
service associated with financing the District's $331,589,000 
accumulated general fund deficit, as of end of fiscal year 
1990.

              Payment of Interest on Short-Term Borrowing

    The Committee recommends $1,000,000 from local funds for

                            Wilson Building

                       Settlements and Judgments

used for making refunds and for the payment of legal 
settlements or judgments that have been entered against the

             Tobacco Settlement Trust Fund Transfer Payment

    The Committee recommends $50,867,000 for the Tobacco 
Settlement Trust Fund established pursuant to section 2302 of 
the Tobacco Settlement Trust Fund Establishment Act of 1999 
(D.C. Official Code, sec. 7-1811.01) and the Tobacco Settlement 
Financing Act of 2000, effective October 19, 2000 (D. C. Law 
13-172; D.C. Official Code, sec. 7-1831.03 et seq.). The 
Committee recommends that no more than $27,000,000 is 
authorized to be transferred to the Public Education System and 
that no more than $23,867,000 is authorized to be transferred 
to Human Support Services.

                         Emergency Preparedness

    The Committee recommends $15,000,000 from Federal funds 
appropriated earlier in this Act under the heading ``Federal 
Payment for Emergency Preparedness and Security Costs in the 
District of Columbia,'' to reimburse the District of Columbia 
for the costs of public safety expenses related to security 
events in the District of Columbia. The further Committee 
recommends that the Chief Financial Officer of the District of 
Columbia shall provide a report, within 15 days of expenditure, 
to the President and to the Committees on Appropriations of the 
Senate and the House of Representatives, detailing any 
expenditure of these funds for public safety purposes.

                Emergency and Contingency Reserve Funds

    The Committee recommends that the Mayor deposit from local 
funds the proceeds required pursuant to Section 159(a) of 
Public Law 106-522 and Section 404(c) of Public Law 106-554 in 
the Emergency and Contingency Reserve Funds in fiscal year 2003 
consistent with the requirements established in Section 450A(b) 
of the District of Columbia Home Rule Act (Public Law 93-198; 
D.C. Official Code. sec. 1-204.50a(b)).

                            Non-Departmental

    The Committee recommends $5,799,000 from local funds for 
the non-departmental agency for fiscal year 2003. The non-
departmental agency is a financial entity designed to account 
for costs that cannot be allocated to specific agencies during 
the development of the proposed budget.

                       Administrative Provisions

    The Committee recommends various administrative provisions 
requested by the District of Columbia, as follows:
    The provision, Unrestricted Fund Balance would allow the 
District to expend the unrestricted fund balance in certain 
cases. Currently, there is no law controlling the use of these 
funds. The provision, Fifty Modified Calendar Day Budget Review 
Period, removes Council recess from the 50 calendar days 
required for budget passage after Mayor's submission to Council
    The Committee recommends a modification to the 
administration of the New Charter School Fund in the District 
of Columbia. The New Charter School fund was established in 
Public Law 106-100, the fiscal year 1998 District of Columbia 
Appropriations Act, as a fund for new public charter schools, 
comprised of unexpended and unobligated amounts appropriated 
from local funds for public charter schools. The purpose of the 
New Charter School Fun is to assist existing or new charter 
schools meet start-up or operating costs. The modifications 
recommended by the Committee will cap the fund at $10,000,000, 
transfer $5,000,000 to the Charter School Credit Enhancement 
Fund, and rename the fund the ``Charter School Fund''. In 
addition, the purpose for these funds shall be to supplement 
the operating costs of charter schools whose total audited 
enrollment exceeds the student enrollment in which the annual 
appropriation is based in that fiscal year.
    The provision, Office of Inspector Residency, requires 
employees of the Inspector General's Office may only receive 
residency requirement waivers from the Office of Personnel. 
Currently the Inspector General's office determines waiver 
eligibility for residency requirements. The provision, 
Reprogramming during fiscal year That Is Not a Control Year, 
establishes the District's current reprogramming policy after 
the Control Board period has ended. The provision, Collective 
Bargaining Representation, allows for an Agency, through an 
intra-District transfer, to fund Office of Labor Relations and 
Collective Bargaining representation. The provision, District 
Of Columbia Public Schools Budget, requires the Board of 
Education to also submit a detailed budget based upon the 
Mayor's proposed Budget. Currently, the Board of Education 
submits only a detailed budget based upon their proposed 
funding level and provides no details as to how they would 
incorporate the annual budget if the Mayor's proposed budget is 
adopted. The provision, Fiscal Year Modification for the 
University of the District Of Columbia, changes the UDC fiscal 
year to being in July. This would move UDC's fiscal year start 
to match all other DC Schools.
    The Committee recommends a modification to the 
administration of the New Charter School Fund in the District 
of Columbia. The New Charter School Fund was established in 
Public Law 106-100, the fiscal year 1998 District of Columbia 
Appropriations Act, as a fund for new public charter schools, 
comprised of unexpended and unobligated amounts appropriated 
from local funds for public charter schools. The purpose of the 
New Charter School Fund is to assist existing or new charter 
schools meet start-up or operating costs. The modifications 
recommended by the Committee will cap the fund at $10,000,000, 
transfer $5,000,000 to the Charter School Credit Enhancement 
Fund, and rename the fund the ``Charter School Fund''. In 
addition, the purpose for these funds shall be to supplement 
the operating costs of charter schools whose total audited 
enrollment exceeds the student enrollment in which the annual 
appropriation is based in that fiscal year.

                            ENTERPRISE FUNDS

    The Committee recommends a total of $669,914,000 from other 
funds for the activities funded through these appropriation 
titles.

                                                                                        ENTERPRISE FUNDS

                           GENERAL PROVISIONS

    The Committee has carefully reviewed the 41 general 
provisions that were included in the fiscal year 2002 District 
of Columbia Appropriations Act and has reduced the number of 
provisions included in last year's act to 34. The Committee 
recommendation deletes 7 general provisions because they made a 
permanent change to law or were a one-time provision.
    The Committee has modified Sec. 124 consistent with the 
provision approved by the Senate included in the fiscal year 
2002 District of Columbia Appropriations bill. While 
maintaining the restriction on the use of Federal funds, the 
Committee has modified the section to allow the District of 
Columbia to use locally-generated revenues to provide 
assistance for petition drives or civil actions which seek to 
gain congressional approval of voting representation in 
Congress for the District of Columbia. The District of Columbia 
should not be prohibited from using its locally generated 
revenues to advocate in the same manner as any other city in 
this country.
    The Committee has modified Sec. 125 consistent with the 
provision approved by the Senate included in the fiscal year 
2002 District of Columbia Appropriations bill. While 
maintaining the restriction on the use of Federal funds, the 
Committee has modified the section to allow the District of 
Columbia to use locally-generated revenues to support programs 
that provide individuals with sterile needles and syringes. 
This District of Columbia has an HIV/AIDS rate over 10 times 
the national average. Over 113 needle exchange programs operate 
in 35 States in this country. Thirty-eight programs in 17 
States receive State, county or local funding. The District of 
Columbia should not be prohibited from using locally generated 
revenues in the same manner as any other city in this country 
to effectively combat HIV/AIDS.
    The Committee recommends maintaining current law on all of 
the other general provisions.
    The Committee has modified Sec. 111 to strike paragraphs 
(b) through (e), regarding the personnel requirements of the 
Office of the Chief Technology Officer and the Office of the 
Chief Financial Officer, because it made a permanent provision 
of law.
    The Committee has deleted Sec. 130 regarding enforcement of 
tobacco prohibitions, consistent with the President's fiscal 
year 2003 budget request.
    The Committee has deleted Sec. 133 regarding the reserve 
requirements because it made a permanent provision of law. The 
District Government requested that the date of deposit of funds 
into the Emergency and Contingency Reserve Funds be changed 
from October 1 to February 15. The Committee understands that 
the District of Columbia Appropriations bill is not often 
enacted before December each year. This delay prevents the 
District from taking any action to fulfill the requirements of 
the reserve fund until February. The Committee does not 
recommend this modification to the reserve fund requirements.
    The Committee would like to clarify that the District of 
Columbia is not required to make deposits into the budgeted 
reserve fund, pursuant to Section 202(j) of Public Law 104-8 
after the deposits made in fiscal year 2003. Instead, the 
Committee recommends that the District establish a cumulative 
cash reserve of $50,000,000 in fiscal years 2004 and 2005, as 
mandated in the District of Columbia Appropriations Act of 
2002, Public Law 107-96 (115 Stat. 956). The District of 
Columbia must replenish only the amount necessary to maintain 
the required balance in the following fiscal year. The 
cumulative cash reserve would be maintained in addition to cash 
reserve requirements under section 450A of the District of 
Columbia Home Rule Act, Public Law 93-198, as amended. The 
District of Columbia may expend funds from the reserves 
consistent with the conditions associated with such reserve 
funds.
    The Committee has deleted Sec. 134 regarding Integrated 
Product Teams because it was a one-time provision requested by 
the District of Columbia government.
    The Committee has deleted Sec. 136 regarding the salary of 
the Council Chair because it made a permanent provision of law.
    The Committee has deleted Sec. 138 regarding the 
legislative review period of Council legislation regarding the 
closing of 2nd and N Street, NE because it made a permanent 
provision of law.
    The Committee has deleted Sec. 140 regarding the prior 
year's attorney's fees because it made a permanent provision of 
law.
    The Committee has deleted Sec. 141 regarding a General 
Accounting Office report because it made a permanent provision 
of law.
