                            Federal Payments


              Federal Payment for Resident Tuition Support

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $17,000,000 
for the resident tuition support program, $111,000 above the 
fiscal year 2003 appropriation and the same as the President's 
request. These funds are to be used on behalf of eligible 
District of Columbia residents to pay an amount based upon the 
difference between in-State and out-of-State tuition at 
eligible public and private institutions of higher education.
    The program was created by the District of Columbia College 
Access Act of 1999 and has given thousands of District college-
bound students the opportunity to expand their higher education 
choices. The program receives its funding through a Federal 
appropriation which is deposited into a dedicated account under 
the control of the District of Columbia Chief Financial 
Officer. Almost 2,000 students received grant awards in the 
first year and the number of awards has increased every year 
thereafter. The program will celebrate its fifth year of 
operation in fiscal year 2004. The Committee looks forward to a 
report from the Resident Tuition Support Office on the status 
of these first year awardees.
    With the program now fully operational, the Committee 
requests the General Accounting Office (GAO) to conduct a 
program review. This review should determine if adequate 
controls are in place to protect the Federal interest, such as 
those pertaining to student and institution eligibility, cash 
management, and administrative expenses. The review also should 
assess, to the extent possible, relevant performance and 
demographic information related to grant applicants and 
recipients. The Committee requests this report no later than 
March 1, 2004.

       Federal Payment for Emergency Planning and Security Costs

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $15,000,000 
for emergency planning and security costs, $98,000 above the 
fiscal year 2003 appropriation and the same as the President's 
request. These funds are for emergency planning and security 
costs related to the presence of the Federal government in the 
District of Columbia and surrounding jurisdictions.

           Federal Payment to the District of Columbia Courts

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $163,819,000 
for operation of District of Columbia Courts, including the 
Family Court, $2,929,000 above the fiscal year 2003 
appropriation and the same as the President's request. This 
amount includes $8,775,000 for the Court of Appeals, 
$83,387,000 for the Superior Court, $40,006,000 for the Court 
System, and $31,651,000 for capital improvements to courthouse 
facilities.

    The Committee recommends $32,000,000 for Defender Services 
in District of Columbia Courts, $1,389,000 below the fiscal 
year 2003 program level and the same as the President's 
request. These funds provide payment for counsel appointed in 
proceedings in the Family Court of the Superior Court and under 
the District of Columbia Guardianship, Protective Proceedings, 
and Durable Power of Attorney Act of 1986.

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

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $163,081,000 
for the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) 
and the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, 
$9,380,000 above the fiscal year 2003 appropriation and 
$3,444,000 below the President's request. This amount includes 
$100,460,000 for Community Supervision and Sex Offender 
Registration, $37,411,000 for the Pretrial Services Agency, and 
$25,210,000 for the Public Defender Service.
    Facility renovation funding was provided in the fiscal year 
2002 appropriations Act to allow the agency to expand its 
Assessment and Orientation Center. The Committee understands 
that after lengthy negotiations with the District government, 
an agreement has finally been reached to allow CSOSA to begin 
renovations at Karrick Hall on the grounds of Reservation 13. 
The Committee is disappointed that it has taken almost two 
years to reach this agreement.
    CSOSA is currently finalizing the contract for design and 
project management and identifying alternative sites to 
relocate the Center while Karrick Hall is being renovated. It 
is the Committee's understanding that CSOSA expects to begin 
the project in July and complete it within 18 to 20 months. 
Given the length of time required to renovate the building, the 
budget constraints facing the Committee, and other priority 
requests, the Committee has deferred the funds requested to 
begin expansion of the Center. The Committee continues to be 
supportive of its expansion and will reassess funding 
requirements as events warrant.

 Federal Payment to the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $35,000,000 
to the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (WASA), 
$14,675,000 below the fiscal year 2003 appropriation and 
$20,000,000 above the President's request. These funds are to 
continue implementation of the Combined Sewer Overflow Long-
Term Plan and are to be matched 100 percent by WASA.
    The District's combined sewer system was designed and 
constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the late 
1800's and serves about a third of the District. The capacity 
of the system is exceeded during storms with the excess flow 
being discharged to the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers, Rock 
Creek, and tributary waters. WASA has developed a long-term 
plan to control these overflows and improve the water quality 
of the rivers. The plan is estimated to cost $1.3 billion and 
take between 15 to 40 years to complete depending on how much 
Federal assistance is obtained. While the Committee is 
supportive of the project and is providing funding for it in 
the bill, the Committee does not have the resources to provide 
the level of funding WASA is seeking from the Federal 
government. Therefore, the Committee strongly encourages WASA 
to pursue other sources of public and private funding.

        Federal Payment for the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $4,300,000 
for the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative, $668,000 below the 
fiscal year 2003 appropriation and $5,700,000 below the 
President's request. These funds are for the design and 
construction of a continuous pedestrian and bicycle trail 
system from the Potomac River to the District's border with 
Maryland.
    The Anacostia Waterfront Initiative is a multi-year, multi-
project initiative to revitalize the Anacostia River and its 
waterfront communities. The design and construction of a 
continuous pedestrian and bicycle trail system from the Potomac 
River to the District's border with Maryland is one such 
project. The project will take approximately four years to 
complete, one year for design and three years for construction. 
The Committee provides the $1,000,000 requested to complete the 
design phase in fiscal year 2004 and $3,300,000 to begin 
construction in fiscal year 2005. The Committee will reassess 
the funding requirements for this project in the future.

      Federal Payment to the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $1,300,000 to 
the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council, $1,002,000 above the 
fiscal year 2003 appropriation and the same as the President's 
request. These funds are to support initiatives related to the 
coordination of Federal and local criminal justice resources in 
the District of Columbia.

  Federal Payment for Capital Development in the District of Columbia

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $8,000,000 to 
the District of Columbia for capital development, $2,084,000 
below the fiscal year 2003 appropriation and $8,000,000 above 
the President's request. These funds are for the Unified 
Communications Center.

              Federal Payment for Public School Facilities

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $4,500,000 to 
the District of Columbia Public Schools, $4,500,000 above both 
the fiscal year 2003 appropriation and the President's request.
    Within the total provided, $500,000 is for a window repair 
and reglazing program. The District of Columbia Public Schools 
(DCPS) is implementing a multi-year Board of Education-approved 
schedule for window replacement at its schools. This level of 
funding would allow DCPS to maintain and repair windows at 
those schools where replacements are not scheduled imminently. 
The remaining $4,000,000 is for a playground repair and 
replacement program. Many DCPS playgrounds are in dire need of 
repair and replacement. In certain cases, playground equipment 
is in such disrepair that they must be blocked off, giving 
children no place to play at recess or an opportunity for 
physical activity and exercise. This funding would allow every 
school in the District to have a fully functional playground by 
the start of the 2004-2005 school year.

            Federal Payment for the Family Literacy Program

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $2,000,000 
for the Family Literacy program, $1,974,000 below the fiscal 
year 2003 appropriation and $2,000,000 above the President's 
request. These funds are to be used to address the needs of 
literacy-challenged parents and are available contingent upon 
the District providing a 100 percent match.

     Federal Payment for a District of Columbia Scholarship Program

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $10,000,000 
for a District of Columbia scholarship program, $10,000,000 
above the fiscal year 2003 appropriation. The President's 
request for the Department of Education included $75,000,000 
for a Choice Incentive Fund, a portion of which would be used 
for school choice programs in the District of Columbia. The 
Committee is providing these funds subject to authorization of 
a program for the District of Columbia.

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

    The Committee recommends a Federal payment of $10,000,000 
for the Chief Financial Officer of the District of Columbia, 
$30,535,000 below the fiscal year 2003 appropriation and 
$10,000,000 above the President's request. These funds are for 
education, public safety, health, economic development, and 
infrastructure initiatives in the District of Columbia.

                             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 2004 budget was submitted the District estimated 
that it would receive a total of $1,787,614,000 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:

    The Committee is recommending a balanced budget in 
accordance with the District government's request. It is 
estimated that sufficient resources will be available from 
current revenue authority to finance operating expenses. A 
financial plan for each of the seven categories for operating 
expenses--(1) General Fund, (2) University of the District of 
Columbia, (3) Water and Sewer Authority, (4) Lottery and 
Charitable Games Fund, (5) Cable Television and 
Telecommunications, (6) Sports and Entertainment Commission, 
and (7) Washington Convention Center follows:

\1\ Includes Intra-District funds.

                  COUNCIL OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

    The Committee recommends $12,161,000 and 163 full-time 
equivalent positions from local funds for the Council of the 
District of Columbia for fiscal year 2004.
    The Council of the District of Columbia is the elected 
legislative branch of the District government. Its mission is 
to enact laws, approve the annual operating and capital 
budgets, and establish and oversee the programs and operations 
of District agencies.
    Despite the fact the District is one of the few 
jurisdictions that provide charter schools a per pupil 
facilities allocation, finding adequate and affordable space 
for charter schools is still a challenge. The fiscal year 2003 
appropriations Act requires the Mayor and the Council to 
conduct an assessment of all buildings currently held in 
surplus and those that might be made available by February 
2004. The Act also requires the Mayor and Council to submit a 
plan, which is in compliance with preferences outlined in the 
District of Columbia School Reform Act, for occupying at least 
50 percent of the available space identified. Both the 
assessment and occupancy plan are to be submitted to the 
Committee by August 2003. The Committee looks forward to 
receiving this report and hopes that it will provide a 
resolution to charter school facility problems.
    The Committee is aware that the local budget for the 
District of Columbia Public Schools includes $32,000,000 for 
negotiated teacher salary increases outside the per pupil 
allocation funding formula. The District is requesting 
$6,000,000 in Federal funds to accommodate a similar increase 
for charter schools. The Committee has not provided this 
funding and directs the Mayor and Council to provide charter 
schools with the local funding they are entitled to receive 
under current law.

               OFFICE OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA AUDITOR

    The Committee recommends $1,541,000 and 17 full-time 
equivalent positions from local funds for the Office of the 
District of Columbia Auditor for fiscal year 2004.
    The mission of the Office of the District of Columbia 
Auditor is to assist the Council of the District of Columbia in 
performing its oversight responsibilities; annually audit the 
accounts, operations, and programs of the District government; 
provide financial oversight and conduct audits of the financial 
activities of the Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANC); 
manage and administer the ANC Security Fund; and certify 
revenue estimates in support of municipal bond issuances.

full-time equivalent positions from Federal grant funds) for 
the Office of the Mayor for fiscal year 2004. In addition, the 
Office expects to receive $506,000 and five full-time 
equivalent positions from intra-District funds for a total 
operating budget of $8,410,000 and 82 full-time equivalent 
positions.
    The mission of the Office of the Mayor is to serve the 
needs of the public by setting priorities, providing management 
direction and support to agencies, and restoring one 
government, good government, and self-government to the 
District of Columbia.
    The Committee is aware of concerns that a flawed formula 
staffing model for the Firefighting Division of the Fire and 
Emergency Medical Services Department has resulted in staffing 
shortfalls and excessive overtime hours. The Committee 
encourages the Mayor to conduct a thorough review of this model 
and make changes necessary to ensure efficient services.
    Despite the fact the District is one of the few 
jurisdictions that provide charter schools a per pupil 
facilities allocation, finding adequate and affordable space 
for charter schools is still a challenge. The fiscal year 2003 
appropriations Act requires the Mayor and the Council to 
conduct an assessment of all buildings currently held in 
surplus and those that might be made available by February 
2004. The Act also requires the Mayor and Council to submit a 
plan, which is in compliance with preferences outlined in the

50 percent of the available space identified. Both the 
assessment and occupancy plan are to be submitted to the 
Committee by August 2003. The Committee looks forward to 
receiving this report and hopes that it will provide a 
resolution to charter school facility problems.
    The Committee is aware that the local budget for the 
District of Columbia Public Schools includes $32,000,000 for

                           General Provisions

    The Committee has retained several of the general 
provisions carried in last year's bill. These include sections 
101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 
113, 114, 115, 116, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 
126, 127, 128, 129, 131, and 134.
    The Committee has deleted 13 general provisions carried in 
last year's bill. Three of these provisions had been carried in 
the bill for years and were made permanent law in last year's 
bill. These included a provision to require the Mayor to 
develop an annual plan for capital outlay borrowing, a 
provision to allow the District of Columbia government to 
accept and use a gift or donation, and a provision to require 
the prompt payment of appointed counsel. The remaining 10 
provisions were one-time provisions, not intended to be 
repeated in future appropriation bills.
    The Committee recommends making permanent two general 
provisions that have been included in the bill for years and 
that the District expects to continue to request in the future. 
These include section 130 to allow District agencies to use 
local funds to pay the settlement or judgment of a claim or 
lawsuit in an amount less than $10,000 and section 132 to allow 
District agencies to transfer local funds to be the Office of 
Labor Relations and Collective Bargaining to reimburse the 
Office for representation costs.
    The Committee recommends a modification to section 117 to 
allow the Council to approve grants through a passive-approval 
process.
    The Committee recommends a modification to section 133 to 
require that all savings be used to expand special education 
services within the District. The Committee notes that when a 
similar provision was included in previous bills, the General 
Accounting Office estimated that the District of Columbia 
Public School system saved approximately $10 million per year.
    The Committee has not approved three provisions requested 
by the Mayor to allow the District to exceed the amount 
appropriated in this Act.
    The Committee has not approved a provision requested by the 
Mayor related to the District's fiduciary duties and 
responsibilities of funds appropriated to or through the 
District to a non-District government entity.

    Appropriations Can Be Used Only for the Purposes for Which Made

    Title 31 of the United States Code makes clear that 
appropriations can be used only for the purposes for which they 
were appropriated as follows:
    Section 1301. Application.
    (a) Appropriations shall be applied only to the objects for 
which the appropriations were made except as otherwise provided 
by law.

                          RESCISSION OF FUNDS

    Pursuant to clause 1(b) of rule X of the House of 
Representatives, the Committee reports that rescissions of 
prior year budget authority are recommended in the accompanying 
bill under the heading ``Capital Outlay'', as requested.

                        CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY

    Clause 3(d)(4) of rule XIII of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives states that:

          Each report of a committee on a bill or joint 
        resolution of a public character, shall include a 
        statement citing the specific powers granted to the

             ADDITIONAL VIEWS OF THE HONORABLE CHAKA FATTAH

    I commend the Chairman for working with me to address the 
financial needs of the District to the best of our ability, 
given the limited funding allocation provided to the 
subcommittee. However, I continue to have two fundamental 
concerns with the bill.

                               HOME RULE

    This bill continues the disturbing trend of undermining 
District self governance and, therefore, District residents. 
Instead of deferring to the District's elected leaders, the 
Appropriations Committee has once again decided to meddle in 
local affairs. During Full Committee consideration of the bill, 
an amendment was adopted that would effectively prohibit the 
District from pursing legal recourse in a particular care. 
Without speaking to the merits of the litigation, I strongly 
believe that the District should be allowed to pursue whatever 
policies it deems appropriate in the same manner that other 
local jurisdictions would.
    The citizens of the District have elected their own 
officials. These officials are capable of pursuing policies 
consistent with the views of their citizens without Federal 
intervention. If these local officials fail to do so, they will 
not be reelected. This process is a fundamental component of 
democracy. When the Congress of the United States undermines 
this process--as it has done in adopting this most recent 
provision, as well as others, such as a prohibition on a needle 
exchange program--it is denying American citizens access to 
democracy. I urge my colleagues to reject this undemocratic and 
disrespectful approach to the District.

                                VOUCHERS

    This bill also contains $10 million of public funds for a 
voucher program that would subsidize the private education of a 
limited number of District residents. Rather than improving 
public school education, thereby ensuring a sound basic 
education for every child, this bill pursues a policy that 
would allow a small percentage of students to attend private 
schools. It is unthinkable for us to speak about private school 
vouchers when 90 percent of American students are enrolled in 
public schools. Furthermore, these private schools would most 
likely not be held to the same standards of accountability as 
public schools since private schools are not required to adopt 
the reforms put in place by the No Child Left Behind Act, such 
as the hiring of highly qualified teachers.
    Vouchers have little support among the American people in 
general, nor District residents in particular. Since 1972, 
vouchers have been soundly defeated every time they have come 
before the voters, and over the past decade, legislatures in 37 
states have rejected vouchers. Serious questions have been 
raised about the appropriateness of public funding for private 
schooling and the effectiveness of voucher programs in 
Milwaukee, Cleveland, and Florida. These types of concerns led 
the Appropriations Committee to reject the President's proposal 
for a national vouchers program. It is unfair to use the 
District as a laboratory for unproven models and approaches to 
educating the District's children that were deemed unacceptable 
for children elsewhere.
    A study of District residents found that 76 percent of 
voters oppose providing taxpayer-funded vouchers to parents to 
pay for their children to attend private or religious schools 
if it meant less money for public school students. By taking 
funds that could be invested in the public school system and 
redirecting funds to private schools, we are doing exactly 
that. The District Board of Education also opposes vouchers and 
has noted ``it would be hypocritical for Congress to impose 
vouchers on the District, as it rejected a proposal to impose 
vouchers on other jurisdictions and on the country as a whole 
during the recent debate on the President's education bill.''
    In a brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court, the National 
Education Association said that private school vouchers ``are 
not a solution to the problems of urban education, but rather 
an impediment to the development and the funding of effective 
solutions to the public schooling problem.'' I concur with this 
belief. That is why I proposed two amendments to the bill 
during Full Committee consideration. My first amendment 
proposed that instead of promoting an inequitable educational 
system, $10 million should be provided to high-performing 
public schools and charter schools. My second amendment would 
have withheld funding for vouchers until such time that at 
least 90 percent of District public school students were being 
taught by highly qualified teachers and had access to adequate 
educational materials comparable to the highest-achieving 
schools in the DC Metropolitan region. Unfortunately, both 
efforts were unsuccessful.

                               CONCLUSION

    I would like to reiterate my strong support for the 
Chairman. I believe he has been fair and inclusive in crafting 
this bill. However, I cannot support an education initiative 
that diverts scarce dollars away from the public education 
system to support an untested and unaccountable private school 
subsidy that will aid relatively few children. I intend to push 
for additional public school funds as this bill moves forward. 
I also remain committed to home rule and minimizing any 
inappropriate intrusions into the local governance of the 
District of Columbia.
