    Sec. 8117. (a) Findings.--The Senate makes the following 
findings:
            (1) The Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 
        2004 (Public Law 108-87), the Department of Defense 
        Appropriations Act, 2005 (Public Law 108-287), and the 
        Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, 
        the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief, 2005 
        (Public Law 109-13) each contain a sense of the Senate 
        provision urging the President to provide in the annual 
        budget requests of the President for a fiscal year 
        under section 1105(a) of title 31, United States Code, 
        an estimate of the cost of ongoing military operations 
        in Iraq and Afghanistan in such fiscal year.
            (2) The budget for fiscal year 2006 submitted to 
        Congress by the President on February 7, 2005, requests 
        no funds for fiscal year 2006 for ongoing military 
        operations in Iraq or Afghanistan.
            (3) According to the Congressional Research 
        Service, there exists historical precedent for 
        including the cost of ongoing military operations in 
        the annual budget requests of the President following 
        initial funding for such operations by emergency or 
        supplemental appropriations Acts, including--
                    (A) funds for Operation Noble Eagle, 
                beginning in the budget request of President 
                George W. Bush for fiscal year 2005;
                    (B) funds for operations in Kosovo, 
                beginning in the budget request of President 
                George W. Bush for fiscal year 2001;
                    (C) funds for operations in Bosnia, 
                beginning in the budget request of President 
                Clinton for fiscal year 1997;
                    (D) funds for operations in Southwest Asia, 
                beginning in the budget request of President 
                Clinton for fiscal year 1997;
                    (E) funds for operations in Vietnam, 
                beginning in the budget request of President 
                Johnson for fiscal year 1966; and
                    (F) funds for World War II, beginning in 
                the budget request of President Roosevelt for 
                fiscal year 1943.
            (4) In section 1024(b) of the Emergency 
        Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global 
        War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief, 2005 (119 Stat. 
        252), the Senate requested that the President submit to 
        Congress, not later than September 1, 2005, an 
        amendment to the budget of the President for fiscal 
        year 2006 setting forth detailed cost estimates for 
        ongoing military operations overseas during such fiscal 
        year.
            (5) The President has yet to submit such an 
        amendment.
            (6) In February 2005, the Congressional Budget 
        Office estimated that fiscal year 2006 cost of ongoing 
        military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan could total 
        $85,000,000,000.
    (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate 
that--
            (1) any request for funds for a fiscal year after 
        fiscal year 2006 for an ongoing military operation 
        overseas, including operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, 
        should be included in the annual budget of the 
        President for such fiscal year as submitted to Congress 
        under section 1105(a) of title 31, United States Code;
            (2) the President should submit a budget request 
        for fiscal year 2006 setting forth estimates for 
        ongoing military operations overseas during such fiscal 
        year; and
            (3) any funds provided for a fiscal year for 
        ongoing military operations overseas should be provided 
        in appropriations Acts for such fiscal year through 
        appropriations to specific accounts set forth in such 
        appropriations Acts.

                        directive, instruction, or order) shall 
                        be construed to limit any Federal

                        any group officially affiliated with 
                        the Boy Scouts of America) that would 
                        result in that Federal agency providing 
                        less support to that youth organization 
                        (or any similar organization chartered 
                        under the chapter of title 36, United 
                        States Code, relating to that youth 
                        organization) than was provided during 
                        the preceding fiscal year. This clause 
                        shall be subject to the availability of 
                        appropriations.
                            (ii) Youth organizations that cease 
                        to exist.--Clause (i) shall not apply 
                        to any youth organization that ceases 
                        to exist.
                            (iii) Waivers.--The head of a 
                        Federal agency may waive the 
                        application of clause (i) to any youth 
                        organization with respect to each 
                        conviction or investigation described 
                        under subclause (I) or (II) for a 
                        period of not more than 2 fiscal years 
                        if--

                                (including any member of the 
                                board of directors) of the 
                                youth organization is convicted 
                                of a criminal offense relating 
                                to the official duties of that 
                                officer or the youth 
                                organization is convicted of a 
                                criminal offense; or
                                    (II) the youth organization 
                                is the subject of a criminal 
                                investigation relating to 
                                fraudulent use or waste of 
                                Federal funds.
                    (B) Types of support.--Support described 
                under this paragraph shall include--
                            (i) holding meetings, camping 
                        events, or other activities on Federal 
                        property;
                            (ii) hosting any official event of 
                        such organization;
                            (iii) loaning equipment; and
                            (iv) providing personnel services 
                        and logistical support.
    (c) Support for Scout Jamborees.--
            (1) Findings.--Congress makes the following 
        findings:
                    (A) Section 8 of article I of the 
                Constitution of the United States commits 
                exclusively to Congress the powers to raise and 
                support armies, provide and maintain a Navy, 
                and make rules for the government and 
                regulation of the land and naval forces.
                    (B) Under those powers conferred by section 
                8 of article I of the Constitution of the 
                United States to provide, support, and maintain 
                the Armed Forces, it lies within the discretion 
                of Congress to provide opportunities to train 
                the Armed Forces.
                    (C) The primary purpose of the Armed Forces 
                is to defend our national security and prepare 
                for combat should the need arise.
                    (D) One of the most critical elements in 
                defending the Nation and preparing for combat 
                is training in conditions that simulate the 
                preparation, logistics, and leadership required 
                for defense and combat.
                    (E) Support for youth organization events 
                simulates the preparation, logistics, and 
                leadership required for defending our national 
                security and preparing for combat.
                    (F) For example, Boy Scouts of America's 
                National Scout Jamboree is a unique training 
                event for the Armed Forces, as it requires the 
                construction, maintenance, and disassembly of a 
                ``tent city'' capable of supporting tens of 
                thousands of people for a week or longer. 
                Camporees at the United States Military Academy 
                for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts provide similar 
                training opportunities on a smaller scale.
            (2) Support.--Section 2554 of title 10, United 
        States Code, is amended by adding at the end the 
        following:
    ``(i)(1) The Secretary of Defense shall provide at least 
the same level of support under this section for a national or 
world Boy Scout Jamboree as was provided under this section for 
the preceding national or world Boy Scout Jamboree.
    ``(2) The Secretary of Defense may waive paragraph (1), if 
the Secretary--
            ``(A) determines that providing the support subject 
        to paragraph (1) would be detrimental to the national 
        security of the United States; and
            ``(B) reports such a determination to the Congress 
        in a timely manner, and before such support is not 
        provided.''.
    (d) Equal Access for Youth Organizations.--Section 109 of 
the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 
5309) is amended--
            (1) in the first sentence of subsection (b) by 
        inserting ``or (e)'' after ``subsection (a)''; and
            (2) by adding at the end the following:
    ``(e) Equal Access.--
            ``(1) Definition.--In this subsection, the term 
        `youth organization' means any organization described 
        under part B of subtitle II of title 36, United States 
        Code, that is intended to serve individuals under the 
        age of 21 years.
            ``(2) In general.--No State or unit of general 
        local government that has a designated open forum, 
        limited public forum, or nonpublic forum and that is a 
        recipient of assistance under this chapter shall deny 
        equal access or a fair opportunity to meet to, or 
        discriminate against, any youth organization, including 
        the Boy Scouts of America or any group officially 
        affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, that wishes 
        to conduct a meeting or otherwise participate in that 
        designated open forum, limited public forum, or 
        nonpublic forum.''.
    Sec. 8127. Regulations To Clarify Gift Acceptance Policy 
for Service Members and Their Families. (a) Regulations.--The 
Secretary of Defense shall prescribe regulations to provide 
that, subject to such limitations as may be specified in such 
regulations, members of the Armed Forces described in 
subsection (c), and the family members of such a member, may 
accept gifts from non-profit organizations, private parties,

foreign governments and their agents. Such regulations shall 
apply uniformly to the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps, 
and, to the maximum extent feasible, to the Coast Guard, and 
shall apply uniformly to the active and reserve components.
      (b) Authority.--A member of the Armed Forces described in 
subsection (c) may accept gifts as provided in the regulations 
authorized in subsection (a), notwithstanding section 7353 or 
title 5, United States Code.
      (c) Covered Members.--A member of the Armed Forces is 
described in this subsection in the case of a member who is on 
active duty and who on or after September 11, 2001, and while 
on active duty, incurred an injury or illness--
            (1) as described in section 1413a(e)(2) of title 
        10, United States Code; or
            (2) in an operation or area designated as a combat 
        operation or a combat zone, respectively, by the 
        Secretary of Defense in accordance with the regulations 
        prescribed under subsection (a).
      (d) Deadline for Regulations.--Regulations under 
subsection (a) shall be prescribed not later than 90 days after 
the date of the enactment of this Act.
      (e) Retroactive Applicability of Regulations.--
Regulations under subsection (a) shall, to the extent provided 
in such regulations, also apply to the acceptance of gifts 
during the period beginning on September 11, 2001, and ending 
on the date on which such regulations go into effect.
      Sec. 8128. Section 106(g) of the Alaska Natural Gas 
Pipeline Act (15 U.S.C. 720d) is amended by striking ``later'' 
and inserting ``earlier''.
      Sec. 8129. The present incumbent Attending Physician at 
the U.S. Capitol shall be continued on active duty until ten 
years after the enactment of this Act.

              TITLE IV.--HURRICANE EDUCATION RECOVERY ACT

    Subtitle A--Elementary and Secondary Education Hurricane Relief

SEC. 101. FINDINGS; DEFINITIONS.

      (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita have had a 
        devastating and unprecedented impact on students who 
        attended schools in the disaster areas.
            (2) Due to the devastating effects of Hurricane 
        Katrina and Hurricane Rita, a significant number of 
        students have enrolled in schools outside of the area 
        in which they resided, including a significant number 
        of students who enrolled in non-public schools because 
        their parents chose to enroll them in such schools.
            (3) 372,000 students were displaced by Hurricane 
        Katrina. Approximately 700 schools have been damaged or 
        destroyed. Nine States each have more than 1,000 of 
        such displaced students enrolled in their schools. In 
        Texas alone, over 45,000 displaced students have 
        enrolled in schools.
            (4) In response to these extraordinary conditions, 
        this subtitle creates a one-time only emergency grant 
        for the 2005-2006 school year tailored to the needs and 
        particular circumstances of students displaced by 
        Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita.
            (5) The level and type of assistance provided under 
        this subtitle, both for students attending public 
        schools and students attending non-public schools, is 
        made available solely because of the unprecedented 
        nature of the crisis, the massive dislocation of 
        students, and the short duration of the services or 
        assistance.
      (b) Definitions.--Unless otherwise specified in this 
subtitle, the terms used in this subtitle have the meanings 
given the terms in section 9101 of the Elementary and Secondary 
Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 7801).

SEC. 102. IMMEDIATE AID TO RESTART SCHOOL OPERATIONS.

      (a) Purpose.--It is the purpose of this section--
            (1) to provide immediate services or assistance to 
        local educational agencies and non-public schools in 
        Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas that serve 
        an area in which a major disaster has been declared in 
        accordance with section 401 of the Robert T. Stafford 
        Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 
        5170), related to Hurricane Katrina or Hurricane Rita; 
        and
            (2) to assist school administrators and personnel 
        of such agencies or non-public schools with expenses 
        related to the restart of operations in, the re-opening 
        of, and the re-enrollment of students in, elementary 
        schools and secondary schools in such areas.
      (b) Payments Authorized.--From amounts appropriated to 
carry out this subtitle, the Secretary of Education is 
authorized to make payments, on such basis as the Secretary 
determines appropriate, taking into consideration the number of 
students who were enrolled, during the 2004-2005 school year, 
in elementary schools and secondary schools that were closed on 
September 12, 2005, as a result of Hurricane Katrina or on 
October 7, 2005, as a result of Hurricane Rita, to State 
educational agencies in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and 
Texas to enable such agencies to provide services or assistance 
to local educational agencies or non-public schools serving an 
area in which a major disaster has been declared in accordance 
with section 401 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and 
Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5170), related to Hurricane 
Katrina or Hurricane Rita.
      (c) Eligibility, Consideration, and Equity--

                assistance are provided.
                    (B) The severity of the impact of Hurricane 
                Katrina or Hurricane Rita on the local 
                educational agency or non-public school and the 
                extent of the needs in each local educational 
                agency or non-public school in Louisiana, 
                Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas that is in an 
                area in which a major disaster has been 
                declared in accordance with section 401 of the 
                Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and 
                Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5170),

        provided in a timely manner.
      (d) Applications.--Each local educational agency or non-

school.

        property and shall provide such services (or may 
        contract for the provision of such services with a

                total amount of the payment under such 
                paragraph as the sum of such prior payments 
                bears to the total cost of attendance for all 
                students in that local educational agency for 
                whom the State educational agency made such 
                prior payments, except that a local educational

                        emergency impact aid payments under 
                        this section on a quarterly basis for 
                        the 2005-2006 school year by such dates 
                        as determined by the Secretary of 
                        Education. Such quarterly installment 
                        payments shall be based on the number

                                students (who are not children 
                                with disabilities) reported by 
                                the eligible local educational 
                                agency or eligible BIA-funded 
                                school for such quarter (as 
                                determined under subsection 
                                (c)(2) times $6,000; and

                                educational agency or eligible 
                                BIA-funded school for such 
                                quarter (as determined under 
                                subsection (c)(2)) times 
                                $7,500.
                            (iii) Timeline.--The Secretary of 
                        Education shall establish a timeline

                        timely manner.
                            (iv) Insufficient funds.--If, for 
                        any quarter, the amount available under 
                        this section to make payments under 
                        this subsection is insufficient to pay 
                        the full amount that an eligible local 
                        educational agency or eligible BIA-
                        funded school is eligible to receive 
                        under this section, the State 
                        educational agency shall ratably reduce 
                        the amount of such payments.
                    (B) Maximum payment to account.--In 
                providing quarterly payments to an account for 
                the 2005-2006 school year on behalf of a 
                displaced student for each quarter that such 
                student is enrolled in a non-public school in 
                the area served by the agency under paragraph 
                (3), an eligible local educational agency may 
                provide not more than 4 quarterly payments to 
                such account (each of which shall be paid not 
                later than 14 calendar days after the date of 
                receipt of each quarterly installment payment 
                received under subparagraph (A)), and the 
                aggregate amount of such payments shall not 
                exceed the lesser of--
                            (i)(I) in the case of a displaced 
                        student who is not a child with a 
                        disability, $6,000; or
                            (II) in the case of a displaced 
                        student who is a child with a 
                        disability, $7,500; or
                            (ii) the cost of tuition and fees 
                        (and transportation expenses, if any) 
                        at the non-public school for the 2005-
                        2006 school year.

                accessing funds on behalf of a displaced 
                student under this section must waive tuition, 
                or reimburse tuition paid, in an amount equal

        schools and secondary schools (including charter 
        schools) served by such agency, or to such BIA-funded 
        school, that enrolled a displaced student. An eligible 
        local educational agency that receives emergency impact 
        aid payments under this section and that serves an area 
        in which there is located an eligible non-public school 
        shall, at the request of the parent or guardian of a 
        displaced student who meets the criteria described in 
        subsection (c)(2)(A)(ii) and who enrolled in a non-
        public school in an area served by the agency, use such 
        emergency impact aid payment to provide payment on a 
        quarterly basis (but not to exceed the total amount 
        specified in subsection (d)(2)(B) for the 2005-2006

                displaced students.
                    (B) Identifying and acquiring curricular 
                material, including the costs of providing 
                additional classroom supplies, and mobile 
                educational units and leasing sites or spaces.
                 (C) Basic instructional services for such 
                students, including tutoring, mentoring, or 
                academic counseling.
                    (D) Reasonable transportation costs.

                    (F) Education and support services.
            (2) Verification of enrollment for non-public 
        schools.--Before providing a quarterly payment to an 
        account, the eligible local educational agency shall 
        verify with the parent or guardian of a displaced 
        student that such displaced student is, or was, 
        enrolled in the non-public school for such quarter.
            (3) Prohibition.--Funds received under this section 
        shall not be used for construction or major renovation 
        of schools.
            (4) Provision of special education and related 
        services.--
                    (A) In general.--In the case of displaced 
                student who is a child with a disability, any 
                payment made on behalf of such student to an 
                eligible local educational agency or any 
                payment available in an account for such 
                student, shall be used to pay for special 
                education and related services consistent with 
                the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 
                (20 U.S.C. 1400 et seq.).
                    (B) Special rule.--
                            (i) Retention.--Notwithstanding any 
                        other provision of this section, if an 
                        eligible local educational agency 
                        provides services to a displaced 
                        student attending an eligible non-
                        public school under section 612(a)(10) 
                        of the Individuals with Disabilities 
                        Education Act (20 U.S.C. 1412(a)(10)), 
                        the eligible local educational agency 
                        may retain a portion of the assistance 
                        received under this section on behalf 
                        of such student to pay for such 
                        services.
                            (ii) Determination of portion.--
                                    (I) Guidelines.--Each State 
                                shall issue guidelines, not 
                                later than 14 calendar days 
                                after the date of the 
                                publication of the notice 
                                described in subsection (a)(4), 
                                that specify the portion of the 
                                assistance that an eligible 
                                local educational agency in the 
                                State may retain under this 
                                subparagraph. Each State shall 
                                apply such guidelines in a 
                                consistent manner throughout 
                                the State.

                        services.--The terms ``special 
                        education'' and ``related services'' 
                        have the meaning given such terms in

                        education program'' has the meaning 
                        given the term in section 614(d)(2) of 
                        the Individuals with Disabilities 
                        Education Act (20 U.S.C. 1414(d)(2)).

        school under this section that the eligible local 
        educational agency or school has not obligated by the 
        end of the 2005-2006 school year in accordance with 
        this section.

                by the end of the 2005-2006 school year in 
                accordance with this section; and
                    (B) any payment funds returned to the State

that another entity shall provide such services, the Secretary 
of Education shall make such arrangements with that entity.
      (l) Redirection of Funds.--
            (1) In general.--If a State educational agency or 
        eligible local educational agency is unable to carry

        public school in the area served by such agency.
            (2) Special rule.--If an eligible local educational 
        agency does not make a payment to an account within 14 
        calendar days of receipt of funds provided under this

                ensure that the proper payment to such account 
                for such quarter is made not later than 14 
                calendar days after the date of the receipt of 
                funds under subparagraph (A), before any

            ``(1) In general.--Subject to the other provisions 
        of this section, a covered person shall be immune from 
        suit and liability under Federal and State law with 
        respect to all claims for loss caused by, arising out 
        of, relating to, or resulting from the administration 
        to or the use by an individual of a covered 
        countermeasure if a declaration under subsection (b) 
        has been issued with respect to such countermeasure.
            ``(2) Scope of claims for loss.--
                    ``(A) Loss.--For purposes of this section,

                without regard to the date of the occurrence, 
                presentation, or discovery of the loss 
                described in the clause.
                    ``(B) Scope.--The immunity under paragraph 
                (1) applies to any claim for loss that has a 
                causal relationship with the administration to 
                or use by an individual of a covered 
                countermeasure, including a causal relationship 
                with the design, development, clinical testing

                without regard to whether such countermeasure

                accordance with the conditions described in 
                paragraph (3)(C).

                covered countermeasure, the scope of immunity 
                includes circumstances in which the 
                countermeasure was administered to or used by 
                an individual in circumstances in which the 
                covered person reasonably could have believed 
                that the countermeasure was administered or 
                used in accordance with the conditions 
                described in paragraph (3)(C).

        provisions of this section apply to a covered 
        countermeasure regardless of whether such 
        countermeasure is obtained by donation, commercial 
        sale, or any other means of distribution, except to the 
        extent that, under paragraph (2)(E) of subsection (b), 
        the declaration under such subsection provides that 
        subsection (a) applies only to covered countermeasures 
        obtained through a particular means of distribution.
            ``(6) Rebuttable presumption.--For purposes of 
        paragraph (1), there shall be a rebuttable presumption 
        that any administration or use, during the effective 
        period of the emergency declaration by the Secretary 
        under subsection (b), of a covered countermeasure shall 
        have been for the category or categories of diseases,

        threat to health constitutes a public health emergency, 
        or that there is a credible risk that the disease, 
        condition, or threat may in the future constitute such 
        an emergency, the Secretary may make a declaration, 
        through publication in the Federal Register, 
        recommending, under conditions as the Secretary may 
        specify, the manufacture, testing, development, 
        distribution, administration, or use of one or more

                scientific evidence that administration or use 
                of the covered countermeasure directly caused 
                such covered injury.
                    ``(B) Amendments.--The provisions of 
                section 263 (other than a provision of

        action under section 319F-3(d). If such individual

                      JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

                               DIVISION A

             DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2006

      The managers on the part of the House and the Senate at 
the conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on 
the amendment of the Senate to the bill (H.R. 2863), making 
appropriations for the Department of Defense for the fiscal 
year ending September 30, 2006, and for other purposes, submit 
the following joint statement to the House and the Senate in 
explanation of the effect of the action agreed upon by the 
managers and recommended in the accompanying conference report.
      The conference agreement on the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2006, incorporates some of the provisions 
of the House and Senate versions of the bill as well as some 
matters under the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Military 
Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies of 
the House Committee on Appropriations that were addressed in 
the House in H.R. 2528. The language and allocations set forth 
in House Report 109-119 and Senate Report 109-141, and the 
relevant language and allocations set forth in House Report 
109-95, should be complied with unless specifically addressed 
in the accompanying conference report and statement of managers 
to the contrary.
      The Senate amendment deleted the entire House bill after 
the enacting clause and inserted new language. The conference 
agreement includes revised language.

              Definition of Program, Project, and Activity

      The conferees agree that for the purposes of the Balanced 
Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (Public Law 
99-177) as amended by the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
Control Reaffirmation Act of 1987 (Public Law 100-119) and by 
the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-508), the 
term program, project, and activity for appropriations 
contained in this Act shall be defined as the most specific 
level of budget items identified in the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2006, the accompanying House and Senate 
Committee reports, the conference report and accompanying joint 
explanatory statement of the managers of the Committee of 
Conference, the related classified annexes and reports, and the 
P-1 and R-1 budget justification documents as subsequently 
modified by Congressional action. The following exception to 
the above definition shall apply: for the Military Personnel 
and the Operation and Maintenance accounts, the term ``program, 
project, and activity'' is defined as the appropriations 
accounts contained in the Department of Defense Appropriations 
Act.
      At the time the President submits his budget for fiscal 
year 2007, the conferees direct the Department of Defense to 
transmit to the congressional defense committees budget 
justification documents to be known as the ``M-1'' and ``O-1'' 
which shall identify, at the budget activity, activity group, 
and subactivity group level, the amounts requested by the 
President to be appropriated to the Department of Defense for 
military personnel and operation and maintenance in any budget 
request, or amended budget request, for fiscal year 2007.

                            Classified Annex

      Adjustments to classified programs are addressed in the 
classified annex accompanying this report.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

  Reprogramming and Reporting Guidance for Basic Allowance for Housing

      The conferees direct the Department of Defense to provide 
budget execution data for Basic Allowance for Housing funding 
to the Subcommittee on Military Quality of Life and Veterans 
Affairs, and Related Agencies and the Subcommittee on Defense 
of the Committee on Appropriations of the House of 
Representatives and the Subcommittee on Defense of the 
Committee on Appropriations of the Senate. Such budget 
execution data shall be provided through the DD-COMP(M) 1002 
accounting form and delivered no later than forty-five days 
past the close of each quarter for the fiscal year. The Reserve 
Component accounts do not provide budget line item data for 
Basic Allowance for Housing; therefore, the Department is 
directed to provide comparable DD-COMP(M) 1002 detail when 
submitting quarterly execution data.
      The conferees further direct the Department to distinctly 
identify Basic Allowance for Housing funding on all prior 
approval reprogramming requests (Form 1415) submitted to the 
Congress. All prior approval reprogramming requests affecting 
Basic Allowance for Housing funding should be submitted to the 
Subcommittee on Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs, 
and Related Agencies and Subcommittee on Defense of the 
Committee on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and 
the Subcommittee on Defense of the Committee on Appropriations 
of the Senate.

                          Composite Pay Rates

      For a number of years, the Government Accountability 
Office (GAO) has used the Department of Defense's draft 
composite pay rates in its military personnel strength analysis 
to estimate the financial impact of work year variances on the 
Services' military personnel budget requests. Although this 
information has been important to the congressional defense 
committees in their budget analysis, the conferees believe that 
GAO's estimates would be more accurate if their estimates used 
the Services' DoD approved composite rates. Therefore, the 
conferees believe that DoD should review, approve, and publish 
the Services' budget year composite pay rates not later than 60 
days after the President's budget request is submitted to the 
Congress.

               Reserve Components Budget Structure Change

      The conferees agree to a one year test of a consolidated 
budget structure for the Reserve components' military personnel 
appropriations. This test will evaluate the budget structure 
presented in the President's budget request reflecting a single 
budget activity for execution purposes in fiscal year 2006. The 
test will conclude with the closure of fiscal year 2006. The 
conferees direct the Department of Defense to submit its fiscal 
year 2007 budget request using the two-budget activity 
structure, and the final structure will be addressed in the 
fiscal year 2007 defense appropriations act. The conferees 
understand the reasoning behind the Department of Defense's 
request to provide additional financial management flexibility 
for the Reserve components to execute their respective 
appropriations. Given this, the congressional defense 
committees still require visibility over the movement of funds 
within the accounts of the Services' appropriations. Therefore, 
the conferees direct the Department of Defense to provide a 
semi-annual report to the congressional defense committees 
showing transfers within the Reserve component military 
personnel appropriations. The report format will provide 
separate explanations for all transfers in and out of each 
appropriation line item that equal, exceed, or cumulate to 
$5,000,000. Reports will be due 30 days following the end of 
the second quarter and the fiscal year. The conferees expect 
the Department of Defense to work with the congressional 
defense committees on the details of the report format.

              Response of Federal Government to Disasters

      The conferees direct the Director of the Office of 
Management and Budget, in coordination with the Secretary of 
Defense and the Secretary of Homeland Security, to conduct a 
study on improving the response of the Department of Defense 
and other Federal Government agencies to disasters. In 
conducting the study the Director should consider mechanisms 
for coordinating and expediting disaster preparation and 
response efforts; examine the role of the Department of Defense 
for participating in disaster response, including planning, 
logistics, relief and reconstruction assistance; and assess the 
role of the United States Geological Survey in enhancing 
disaster preparation measures. The Director shall submit a 
report on the study to Congress by May 1, 2006. The findings 
should include recommendations for improving the response of 
the Department of Defense and other Federal Government agencies 
to disasters and identify any legislation or regulations that 
the Director determines necessary to implement such 
recommendations.

Reimbursement for Protective, Safety, and Health Equipment for Members 
                          of the Armed Forces

      The Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2005 authorized the Department of Defense to 
reimburse members of the Armed Forces for the cost of 
purchasing protective, safety, or health equipment for use in 
Operation Noble Eagle, Operation Enduring Freedom, and 
Operation Iraqi Freedom. In order to more adequately address 
this situation, the conference agreement amends Section 351 of 
that Act to extend this authority until April 1, 2006.
      In addition, the conferees are concerned that certain 
types of equipment are not included in the guidance issued by 
the Department of Defense on October 4, 2005. Therefore, the 
conferees direct the Department to revise the guidance to 
include summer gloves, knee pads and elbow pads, deltoid and 
auxiliary protectors, and side plate body armor. The conferees 
further direct the Military Departments to implement guidance 
for submitting and processing these claims not later than 
January 31, 2006.

                        Ground Source Heat Pumps

      The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to submit a 
report to the congressional defense committees by July 1, 2006, 
on the use of ground source heat pumps at Department of Defense 
facilities. The report should include a description of the 
types of facilities that use ground source heat pumps, an 
assessment of the applicability and cost effectiveness of using 
ground source heat pumps in different geographic regions of the 
United States, and an assessment of the applicability to use 
ground source heat pumps for new construction and retrofitting 
Department of Defense facilities.

                    Military to Civilian Conversions

      The conferees recognize the Military to Civilian 
Conversion program as an important tool to alleviate stress on 
the force by replacing uniformed service members in non-
military essential positions with federal civilian or 
contractor personnel. However, the conferees are concerned that 
budget justification materials do not adequately describe the 
Department's Military to Civilian Conversion program and that 
the Department lacks a clear methodology for developing its 
budget estimates. Therefore, the conferees have reduced the 
Military Services' budget request for Military to Civilian 
Conversions by $282,000,000 due to poor budget justification. 
These reductions should not be interpreted to limit the number 
of conversions completed in fiscal year 2006 if sufficient 
resources are available. The conferees direct the Department to 
include comprehensive data on the Military to Civilian 
Conversion Program in future budget justification materials. 
The budget materials should include: the number of conversions 
completed in the two fiscal years prior to the budget request 
year, the mix of positions filled by civilian contractors or 
government employees, the number of conversions expected to 
occur in the budget year, the mix of civilian contractors and 
government employees expected to be hired, and a detailed 
explanation of the cost estimates used in developing the budget 
request.

   Reprogramming and Reporting Guidance for Facilities Sustainment, 
                     Restoration and Modernization

      The conferees direct the Department of Defense to provide 
budget execution data for Facilities Sustainment, Restoration 
and Modernization funding to the Subcommittee on Military 
Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies and 
the Subcommittee on Defense of the Committee on Appropriations 
of the House of Representatives and the Subcommittee on Defense 
of the Committee on Appropriations of the Senate. Such budget 
execution data shall be provided through the DD-COMP(M) 1002 
accounting form and delivered no later than forty-five days 
past the close of each quarter for the fiscal year. The 
Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide account does not 
provide budget line item data for Facilities Sustainment, 
Restoration and Modernization: therefore, the Department is 
directed to provide comparable DD-COMP(M) 1002 detail when 
submitting quarterly execution data.
       The conferees further direct the Department to 
distinctly identify Facilities Sustainment, Restoration and 
Modernization funding on all prior approval reprogramming 
requests (Form 1415) submitted to the Congress. All prior 
approval reprogramming requests affecting the Facilities 
Sustainment, Restoration and Modernization funding should be 
submitted to the Subcommittee on Military Quality of Life and 
Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies and the Subcommittee on 
Defense of the Committee on Appropriations of the House of 
Representatives and the Subcommittee on Defense of the 
Committee on Appropriations of the Senate.

                    Industrial Mobilization Capacity

       The conferees recognize the critical importance of the 
Industrial Mobilization Capacity program for offsetting costs 
to maintain wartime capabilities at Department of Defense 
depots, arsenals, and ammunition plants. The conferees 
recommend an additional $7,000,000 for this program at Rock 
Island Arsenal. The amount provided is in addition to 
$8,962,000 currently budgeted for Industrial Mobilization 
Capacity at Rock Island Arsenal. The conferees understand the 
requirement for Industrial Mobilization Capacity funding may 
decline during fiscal year 2006 due to increased workloads 
attributable to ongoing contingency operations. The conferees

designated for Rock Island Arsenal that is not required for its 
intended purpose be used for other activities or projects which 
will create efficiencies or improve operations and work 
conditions at the Arsenal.

      The conferees provide an additional $9,400,000 to 
maintain 52 F-117 aircraft in fiscal year 2006. The conferees 
believe it is premature to retire any F-117 aircraft at this 
time. The F-117 provides a unique capability to the combatant 
commanders and remains the only tactical stealth aircraft 
capable of delivering certain types of precision munitions.

              Service-Wide Safety Alcohol Breath Detectors

      The conferees agree to provide $7,270,000 for service-
wide alcohol breath detectors in operation and maintenance 
accounts. In addition to the guidance provided in House Report 
109-19, the conferees direct that these detectors be FDA-
cleared, be housed in unbreakable pocketsize containers, and be 
capable of carrying a Service's safety program imprint.

                 National Guard Youth Challenge Program

      The conferees provide an additional $13,000,000 for the 
National Guard Youth Challenge Program, which includes 
$1,700,000 only for preparation of facilities at Joint Forces 
Training Base Los Alamitos to expand the California National 
Guard Grizzly Program.

                       Unique Item Identification

      The conferees are encouraged by the promise of the Unique 
Item Identification (UID) program at the Department of Defense 
to make acquisition, repair, and deployment of items faster and 
more efficient through unique identification technologies. The 
conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense for 
Acquisition, Technology & Logistics to provide a report to the 
Appropriations Committees no later than October 1, 2006 on the 
benefits and progress of UID efforts within DOD. The report 
should include goals for enhanced operations capabilities, 
support for the warfighter, and improved financial controls.

            Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office

      The conferees are aware that the Defense Prisoner of War/
Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) provides information and 
communication to families, veteran's organizations and the 
public on issues pertaining to personnel recovery and 
accounting for Americans from past conflicts. The conferees 
encourage this office to continue its outreach efforts, annual 
conferences, and meetings

      
with the POW/Missing Personnel families to ensure those family 
members have updated information concerning the status of the 
recovery of their loved ones.

                  Reprogramming Reporting Requirements

      The conferees share the concerns raised in the report 
accompanying the House version of the fiscal year 2006 Defense 
Appropriations bill regarding the need to improve the reporting 
of reprogrammings by the Department of Defense. In the 
Statement of the Managers accompanying the fiscal year 2005 
Defense Appropriations Act, the Department of Defense was 
directed to evaluate current procedures governing the 
Department's financial practices. In response, the Department 
issued a report proposing several reporting improvements. The 
conferees direct the Under Secretary of the Department of 
Defense, Comptroller, to begin implementing all three of the 
proposals identified in the report under the heading of 
``Improved Reporting''. The conferees further direct that the 
quarterly, spreadsheet based DD 1416 reports proposed in the 
Department's recommendations shall be submitted for service and 
defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of this Act and 
shall also include the reason for which funds are available for 
reprogramming, the account to which the funds have been 
reprogrammed, and the requirement for the funds to be 
reprogrammed.

                         Special Interest Items

      Items for which additional funds have been provided as 
shown in the project level tables or in paragraphs using the 
phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' in this report are 
congressional interest items for the purpose of the Base for 
Reprogramming (DD 1414). Each of these items must be carried on 
the DD Form 1414 at the stated amount, or a revised amount if 
changed during conference or otherwise specifically addressed 
in the conference report. These items remain special interest 
items whether or not they are repeated in a subsequent 
conference report.

            Reprogramming Guidance for Acquisition Accounts

      The conferees direct the Department of Defense to 
continue to follow the reprogramming guidance specified in the 
Statement of Managers on the fiscal year 2005 Department of 
Defense Appropriations Act (House Report 108-622). 
Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming 
procurement funds will remain at $20,000,000, and at 
$10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation. The 
Department shall continue to follow the limitation that prior 
approval reprogrammings are set at either the specified dollar 
threshold or 20% of the procurement or research, development, 
test and evaluation line, whichever is less. These thresholds 
are cumulative. Therefore, if the combined value of transfers 
into or out of a procurement (P-1) or research, development, 
test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds the identified 
threshold, the Department of Defense must submit a prior 
approval reprogramming to the congressional defense committees. 
In addition, guidelines on the application of prior approval 
reprogramming procedures for congressional special interest 
items are established elsewhere in this statement.

                             C-130J/KC-130J

      The conferees agree to provide $690,000,000 for the 
procurement of eight C-130J aircraft and $384,200,000 for the 
procurement of five KC-130J aircraft. The conferees are aware 
that the current FAR Part 12 multiyear contract for these 
aircraft is being changed to a more traditional FAR Part 15 
contract structure. The conferees expect that all 13 aircraft 
will be procured under a multiyear contract arrangement that 
will maximize savings to the taxpayer.

          Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) Unitary

      The conferees are aware of the recent successful 
deployment of the GMLRS Unitary Rocket in support of Operation 
Iraqi Freedom. In the missions in which it has been deployed, 
GMLRS Unitary has demonstrated both very high accuracy and low 
collateral damage. Accordingly, the conferees urge the Army to 
maximize the procurement of GMLRS Unitary Rockets from the 
$124,814,000 provided in the conference agreement. The 
conferees further direct that this amount is a congressional 
special interest item for the base for reprogramming as 
described elsewhere in this statement.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

         Objective Individual Combat Weapon (OICW) Increment I

      The conferees understand that following a review by the 
Department of Defense Inspector General (IG) which identified 
several management issues with the OICW program, the Army has 
terminated the OICW I request for proposals. However, 
recognizing the important capabilities that OICW brings to the 
war fighter, the conferees direct the Army to resolve the 
management concerns identified in the IG report and obtain 
joint validation of the OICW Increment I family of weapons 
requirements through the Joint Requirements Oversight Council. 
The conferees strongly encourage the Program Manager to 
subsequently conduct source selection and award a contract in 
fiscal year 2006.
      The conferees direct the Program Manager to provide the 
congressional defense committees a written report detailing the 
program's updated requirements, acquisition strategy--to 
include the Army's strategy for replacing existing weapons--and 
detailed schedule no later than thirty days after enactment of 
this Act. Furthermore, the conferees direct the Program Manager 
to provide quarterly updates on the program's status to the 
congressional defense committees.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                 Life Cycle Management Commands (LCMC)

      The conferees support the goal of the Army's LCMC pilot 
program to establish integrated business enterprises to better 
support the warfighter. Currently, there is a geographically 
separated but strategically important life cycle management 
plan for ammunition management. Given that the Secretary of 
Defense has recommended, and the Base Realignment and Closure 
Commission has endorsed, that Picatinny Arsenal become the home 
for a joint integrated weapons and armaments specialty site for 
guns and ammunition, the conferees believe the Army must 
evaluate how this organization should be structured.
      The conferees understand that the Army will submit a 
report to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) 
detailing its implementation of LCMC programs by December 2005. 
Accordingly, the conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to 
submit a report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations providing its assessment of the value of the 
LCMC construct by February 1, 2006. In addition, by the same 
date, the Secretary of the Army shall provide a report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations that provides a 
summary of the Army's LCMC review, and that rationalizes the 
relationship between each component of the life cycle 
management of ammunition.

                Live Fire Trainer Shoot House Deployment

      The conferees believe that America's Army Live Fire 
Trainer, using ``America's Army'' software and thermal image 
ballistic tracking and weapon middleware will improve training 
of soldiers, sailors, and marines in critical urban combat 
skills. Of note, current U.S. Army live fire urban combat shoot 
houses will be upgraded to replace paper targets with fully 
engageable virtual targets, representing enemy, friendly, and 
non-combatant personnel. As a result, this platform has a 
tremendous capability to improve marksmanship, adaptive 
thinking, and critical combat related tasks in a live-fire 
environment.

                     Battlefield Operating Systems

      The conferees direct the Secretary of the Army to provide 
a report to the congressional defense committees, no later than 
February 15, 2006, detailing the Army's plan to close the 
information-sharing gap across Battlefield Operating Systems 
and provide increased information awareness from multiple 
domains to the commands and forces engaged in Operation Iraqi 
Freedom. The conferees also direct that this report provide 
information regarding the return on investment of expanding or 
redirecting resources to the operation and expansion of net-
centric information-sharing applications such as Federated 
Search, Alerts, and FusionNet, delivered by the Horizontal 
Fusion program. Finally, the conferees direct that this report 
provide information about the architecture and development of 
net-centric services that will improve battle command in 
Operation Iraqi Freedom.

                       MH-60R Helicopter Program

      The conference agreement provides $438,821,000 for the 
MH-60R helicopter program. The conferees note that, as the MH-
60R moves into full rate production, the Navy would be able to 
realize long term cost savings through a multiyear procurement 
of this aircraft, as is being accomplished with other Navy 
aircraft, including the MH-60S. The conferees urge the 
Department of the Navy to examine the business case for a 
multiyear procurement of the MH-60R helicopter and, if 
warranted by the analysis, to implement a multiyear procurement 
as soon as possible to maximize program savings.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

             Joint Direct Attack Munition Laser Capability

      The conferees understand that combatant commanders in 
OEF/OIF have requested the addition of a laser capability to 
existing Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) weapon kits. This 
change could provide improved JDAM operational flexibility and 
time-sensitive target capability. Therefore, the conferees 
agree with Senate language encouraging the Department to 
consider laser JDAM testing to provide these increased 
capabilities to the warfighter.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                      Cost Growth Resolution Plan

      The conferees are concerned over the unanticipated cost 
growth on existing Navy shipbuilding contracts, and agree that 
the plan directed by the House on this subject is to include 
details on the cost growth for all existing shipbuilding and 
conversion efforts. The plan is to be submitted to the 
congressional defense committees not later than February 1, 
2006, and shall make recommendations on mechanisms to resolve 
the cost growth, including the option of converting the 
remaining work to fixed-price contracts.

                             LHA(R) Funding

      The conferees do not agree with House direction urging 
the Navy to reconsider split funding for the LHA(R) Program. 
The conferees agree to consider either split funding or full 
funding if proposed by the Administration.

                      Littoral Combat Ship Report

      The conferees agree to the report on Littoral Combat Ship 
(LCS) mission modules proposed by the House, and specify that 
such report should include cost estimates for these modules by 
fiscal year.

                     SSBN Transit Protection System

      The conference agreement provides $70,700,000 in new 
budget authority for the SSBN Transit Protection System. The 
following table summarizes conference actions on this program:

      The conference agreement provides $70,700,000 for the 
Navy's restructured SSBN Transit Protection Program, including 
$45,300,000 in Other Procurement, Navy for the procurement of 
two 87-foot escort cutters and 11 medium escort vessels, and 
$5,200,000 in Weapons Procurement, Navy for weapons for larger 
screening vessels. In addition, the conferees provide 
$19,200,000 in Operation and Maintenance, Navy for the lease of 
not less than two large screening vessels during fiscal year 
2006. The conferees would not oppose efforts by the Navy to 
provide additional resources to the program during fiscal year 
2006 from existing Navy funds. However, while the conferees 
share the Navy's force protection concerns and provide 
significant funds for these efforts throughout this Act, the 
conferees are concerned about aspects of this approach created 
by the Navy's revised concept of operations. Given programmatic 
changes over the past year, the conferees believe it would be 
important to have an independent review of the current concept 
of operations. Therefore, the conferees direct the Office of 
Program Analysis and Evaluation to oversee a study that 
analyzes the Navy's concept of operations and explores 
alternatives to the current design, and includes $1,000,000 in 
Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide for that purpose. The 
Office of Program Analysis and Evaluation is directed to 
present the results of its analysis to the congressional 
defense committees within 180 days of enactment of this Act.
      Senate direction to withhold the obligation of funds 
(Senate Report No. 109-141) pending submission of a report on 
this program was satisfied when such report was submitted on 
October 12, 2005.

        Future Years Procurement Strategy for the F/A-22 Raptor

      The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to report 
to the congressional defense committees, by March 30, 2006, on 
alternatives for the continued acquisition of the F/A-22. The 
report should consider, but not be limited to, the following: 
analyses of the advantages of a multiyear procurement program, 
of extending the F/A-22 procurement profile, and of the effects 
of F/A-22 procurement on the Joint Strike Fighter production 
line.

                      F/A-22 Titanium Requirements

      The conferees are aware of the potential impact that 
industry trends in the titanium market could have on the 
production timelines for the Lot 8 F/A-22 aircraft. The 
conferees are sensitive to this issue and encourage the 
Department of Defense to propose a comprehensive solution to 
the congressional defense committees not later than 90 days 
after enactment of this Act.

                               Predator B

      The conferees direct the Secretary of the Air Force, in 
conjunction with the Joint Staff, to provide the congressional 
defense committees a detailed written report on the deployment 
status of the MQ-9 in Iraq and the weaponization plan for the 
aircraft by February 3, 2006.

                      Operational Support Aircraft

      The conferees direct that the Department of Defense 
maintain the current allocation of Operational Support Aircraft 
(OSA) assets to support Combatant Commanders and that the 
congressional defense committees be notified at least 30 days 
prior to any alteration of such assignments.

                 Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile

      The conferees agree to provide $100,000,000 for the Joint 
Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) as proposed by the 
Senate. Of the funds provided, the conferees direct the 
following: that not more than $70,000,000 shall be for the 
purpose of maintaining missile hardware procurement at a 
minimum sustainable production rate; that of the remaining 
funds, not less than $20,000,000 shall be for testing and 
reliability improvement; that an additional 4 test shots be 
added to the JASSM weapons system evaluation program to 
evaluate the reliability of Lot 1 and Lot 2 missiles in 
storage; and, that the Program Manager submit to the 
congressional defense committees an updated JASSM test schedule 
no later than 30 days after the enactment of this Act, to 
include the requirements established in this paragraph.

                Evolved Expandable Launch Vehicle (EELV)

      The conferees support contracting procedures that 
facilitate competition, assure access to space, and lead to 
``best value'' procurements. The conferees note that the Air 
Force is transitioning to a new EELV acquisition strategy that 
contractually splits launch services (including launch 
vehicles) from launch infrastructure. The conferees direct that 
launch services contracts provide an annual opportunity for 
companies to present their qualifications to meet objective 
criteria for reliability, mission assurance, oversight, and 
cost credibility, and compete based on their ability to meet 
these criteria. The conferees further direct the elimination of 
multi-year ``allocations'' ``pre-awards,'' and ``block buys'' 
from Buy-3 and future EELV launch services contracts.
      Concerning space launch infrastructure, the conferees 
understand the business case to maintain the EELV 
infrastructure and support the Buy-3 contracting procedure to 
award launch capabilities (infrastructure) contracts on a bi-
annual basis.

                       Advanced SEAL Delivery System (ASDS)

      Since program inception ASDS has experienced design, 
construction, performance, and reliability challenges. Since 
November of this year, the conferees have been made aware of 
additional reliability concerns with the first ASDS. Based on 
these concerns, Special Operations Command has again decided to 
delay construction of the second ASDS. The conferees find this 
decision prudent and thus recommend a realignment of the 
resources provided in both the House and Senate bills for 
advance procurement of the second ASDS. The conferees recommend 
increasing research and development funding by $21,160,000 to 
conduct critical system reviews, address obsolescence and 
improve technologies. The conferees recommend increasing 
procurement funding by $8,650,000 to address modernization, and 
equipment shortfalls and operation and maintenance funding by 
$10,100,000 for unforeseen depot and fleet maintenance. The 
conferees continue to be frustrated by the chronic problems 
with the ASDS and expect both the Command and the Navy to 
dramatically increase the level of technical engineering and 
management oversight dedicated to this program.

                  NATIONAL GUARD AND RESERVE EQUIPMENT

      The conferees agree that National Guard and Reserve 
forces are integral to our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan and 
play a critical role in our Nation's response to national 
disasters. The conferees are aware that the equipment needs of 
our Reserve Component forces far exceed the amounts provided in 
the budget request for those items and agree to provide a total 
of $4,131,653,000 for guard and reserve equipment. The funding 
provided in the conference agreement is located in the 
following accounts: $2,654,353,000 as requested in the budget 
throughout the procurement accounts; $265,000,000 in addition 
to the budget request throughout the procurement accounts; 
$32,300,000 in the operation and maintenance accounts; 
$180,000,000 in the National Guard and Reserve Equipment 
account; $100,000,000 for Army Reserve equipment in Title IX 
for contingency operations; $700,000,000 for the Army National 
Guard in Title IX; and $200,000,000 for the Air National Guard 
in Title IX.
      The House provided specific funding in many of the 
procurement accounts as requested in the Budget. The Senate 
provided funding in the National Guard and Reserve Equipment 
account. The conferees agree to provide the funding identified 
above in the Guard and Reserve Equipment account and in Title 
IX, and expect the Department to provide at a minimum the 
following amounts to the Guard and Reserve components in the 
following procurement accounts:

Aircraft Procurement, Army..............................    $317,750,000

                    DEFENSE PRODUCTION ACT PURCHASES

       The conferees agree to provide a total of $58,248,000 
for the Defense Production Act Purchases appropriation instead 
of $28,573,000 as proposed by the House and $68,573,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      The conference agreement on items addressed by either the 
House or the Senate is as follows:

       Amplifying Fluorescent Polymer-Based IED Detection Devices

      The conferees have been advised that a fluorescent 
polymer-based technology for lED detection has shown great 
promise in Iraq and has had some very significant independent 
test results demonstrating that it can be beneficial in the war 
on terror. Therefore, the conferees direct the Technical 
Support Working Group to review these tests and the technology 
to determine its applicability to the mission of defeating 
IEDs. The Technical Support Working Group is to report back to 
the congressional defense committees within 60 days of 
enactment of this Act regarding the technical feasibility of 
the technology and its status in the acquisition process.

                         Special Interest Items

      Items for which additional funds have been provided as 
shown in the project level tables or in paragraphs using the 
phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' in this report are 
congressional interest items for the purpose of the Base for 
Reprogramming (DD 1414). Each of these items must be carried on 
the DD Form 1414 at the stated amount, or a revised amount if 
changed during conference or otherwise specifically addressed 
in the conference report. These items remain special interest 
items whether or not they are repeated in a subsequent 
conference report.

 Reprogramming Guidance for Research, Development, Test and Evaluation 
                                Accounts

      The conferees direct the Department of Defense to 
continue to follow the reprogramming guidance specified in the 
Statement of the Managers on the fiscal year 2005 Department of 
Defense Appropriations Act (House Report 108-622). 
Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming 
procurement funds will remain at $20,000,000, and at 
$10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation. The 
Department shall continue to follow the limitation that prior 
approval reprogrammings are set at either the specified dollar 
threshold or 20% of the procurement or research, development, 
test and evaluation line, whichever is less. These thresholds 
are cumulative. Therefore, if the combined value of transfers 
into or out of a procurement (P-1) or research, development, 
test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds the identified 
threshold, the Department of Defense must submit a prior 
approval reprogramming to the congressional defense committees. 
In addition, guidelines on the application of prior approval 
reprogramming procedures for congressional special interest 
items are established elsewhere in this statement.

                   Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS)

      The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to submit a 
report to the congressional defense committees not later than 
January 30, 2006, on the status of JTRS. The report shall 
include the following elements: mitigation plans of the 
Military Services to compensate for the restructuring of the 
JTRS program including a detailed description of the legacy or 
other radios required as well as detailed estimates of the cost 
of these plans; an explanation of Army plans to meet Future 
Combat System requirements associated with all developmental 
spirals as a result of the JTRS program revisions, to include a 
detailed description of the compatibility between legacy radios 
and the Army's Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) 
as well as the compatibility between JTRS and WIN-T; and a 
summary of DoD acquisition decisions including the results of 
the Defense Acquisition Board (DAB) meetings held in August and 
November 2005 to rebaseline this program. In addition, the 
conferees direct the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to 
continue its ongoing review of the JTRS program to include a 
review of technical, management, cost and schedule issues 
associated with the program.
      In addition, the conferees urge the Department to 
formally establish the Joint Program Executive Office (JPEO) 
organization for JTRS, specify its authorities, and resource it 
appropriately to accomplish its mission. The conferees also 
urge the Department to establish associated operation and 
maintenance funding to establish and provide for the operating 
expenses of this organization. Finally, the conferees direct 
the Secretary of Defense to provide a report on the 
organization, authorities, and plan to resource the JPEO within 
90 days of enactment of this Act.
      The table below summarizes reductions to the JTRS program 
included in the conference agreement:

Fiscal Year 2006 Reductions:  [$thousands]

                       Joint Common Missile (JCM)

      The conferees support continuation of this program noting 
that this is the first program to have successfully completed 
the requirements determination process implemented in the Joint 
Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS). The 
conferees recommend that the Department of Defense reevaluate 
the decision to terminate this program and, accordingly, 
provide $30,000,000 above the budget request to continue 
development of the JCM. Of this amount, $26,000,000 is provided 
in Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Army, and 
$4,000,000 is provided in Research, Development, Test and 
Evaluation, Navy. In addition, the conferees direct the 
Secretary of Defense to submit a report to the congressional 
defense committees no later than January 30, 2006, that 
explains how the Department of Defense will mitigate the 
capability gaps identified in the JCIDS analysis and provides a 
cost comparison analysis of continuing the JCM program versus 
JCM termination and continued procurement of legacy air-to-
ground missiles to fulfill mission requirements.

                       Future Combat System (FCS)

      The Statement of the Managers accompanying the Department 
of Defense Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2005 (House 
Report 108-622) established a structure for budget preparation 
and execution for FCS which included broadly defined projects 
within the Armored Systems Modernization program element. In 
addition, the statement directed the Army to establish separate 
program elements for the Non Line of Sight Launch System (NLOS-
LS) and the Non Line of Sight Cannon (NLOS-C). The conferees 
believe that this remains a reasonable structure, and direct 
the Army to continue to use this as the basis for executing 
appropriations provided by the Congress, and as the basis for 
preparing the fiscal year 2007 and subsequent budget 
submissions. This funding structure includes the following 
components:

Program Element 0604645A Armored Systems Modernization to 
include the following projects:
      F52--FCS Reconnaissance Platforms & Sensors
      F53--FCS Unmanned Ground Vehicles
      F54--Unattended Sensors
      F55--Sustainment
      F57--F57 Manned Ground Vehicles
      F61--System of Systems Engineering and Program Management
Program Element 0604646A Non Line of Sight Launch System (NLOS-
LS)
Program Element 0604647A Non Line of Sight Cannon (NLOS-C)

      The conferees direct the Secretary of the Army to report 
to the congressional defense committees within 30 days of 
enactment of this Act on the plan to distribute the 
$2,785,829,000 provided by the conference agreement for the 
Armored Systems Modernization program element (PE 0604645A) to 
each of the projects listed above. The conferees designate 
these projects as congressional special interest items for the 
purpose of prior approval reprogrammings as discussed elsewhere 
in this report. The NLOS-LS and NLOS-C program elements are 
subject to normal prior approval reprogramming procedures as 
described elsewhere in this report. In addition, the conferees 
direct the Army to provide a report to the congressional 
defense committees not later than January 15, 2006, which 
provides a detailed list and description of the systems and 
technologies to be included in each of the FCS developmental 
spirals.

                   Non-Line-of-Sight Cannon (NLOS-C)

      The conferees note that the Army provided the 
congressional defense committees with a report on September 28, 
2005, pursuant to language included in the report accompanying 
the House-passed version of the fiscal year 2006 Department of 
Defense Appropriations Act. The conferees find the report 
encouraging because it indicates that the Army plans to produce 
a self-propelled Future Combat System non-line-of-sight cannon 
indirect fire capability to equip the future force as required 
by section 216 of the National Defense Authorization Act for 
fiscal year 2003, and section 8121 of the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2003. The conferees note 
that each annual Department of Defense Appropriations Act since 
2003 has included similar language. The conferees are further 
encouraged by the Army's plan to produce a quantity of eight 
pre-production prototypes, and to begin fielding these guns 
starting in 2008. Accordingly, the conference agreement 
provides $148,387,000, an increase of $40,800,000 above the 
budget request, to enable the Army to continue this effort.

                       Multi-Sensor Architecture

      The conferees agree to recommend additional funding for 
obtaining, evaluating, and integrating new sensors into the 
Cerberus architecture. These would include fiber optic 
perimeter sensors, medium range millimeter wave radars, and low 
cost thermal imaging surveillance sensors. Evaluation and 
integration of these sensors are to be managed by the Army 
Night Vision Electronic Sensor Division.

  Flexible Electronics Research Initiative for Army Soldiers (FERIAS)

      The conferees recognize the importance of developing new 
materials for flexible electronics technologies that will have 
broad impact for multiple military applications. The 
combination of these new materials and technologies will lead 
to soldiers receiving information in real time on maps and 
displays, improving both military communications and soldier 
safety. The resiliency of these devices could also increase the 
lifetime and reliability of current display applications in 
harsh environments, including the battlefield.
      The conferees direct the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) 
to continue to aggressively pursue and take all necessary steps 
to develop new technologies that will enable flexible 
electronics to become an integral part of the Army's 
transformation. The conferees also direct ARL to collaborate 
with the leading developers of flexible display technology to 
fully develop the Flexible Electronics Research Initiative for 
Army Soldiers (FERIAS).

                Applied and Clinical Prosthetic Research

      The conferees support the Army's effort to sustain a 
collaborative applied and clinical prosthetic research activity 
at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center Amputee Care Center, and 
provide $5,500,000 to further develop this program to advance 
prosthetic technological achievement through applied and 
clinical research activities. Included in this amount is 
funding for continuation of the effort to improve and harden 
microprocessor knee componentry.

                          Preventive Medicine

      The conferees remain concerned about rising personnel 
costs, especially health care costs, as a percent of the total 
Department budget. Eliminating or reducing health care services 
to our military members, retirees, and their families, however, 
is not a viable alternative to reigning in future increases in 
health care costs. As such, the conferees applaud the 
preventive medicine programs being undertaken by the tri-
service community, and see these programs as vital to 
controlling the rising costs of treating diseases, including 
cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and diabetes. The conferees 
encourage the continuation and future development of programs 
that stress early detection and individual lifestyle changes to 
promote a healthier military community.

                           Chiropractic Care

      The conferees note military personnel receive 
chiropractic health care benefits. Further, chiropractic 
medicine is an established and sought after form of treatment 
in military medical facilities. The conferees, therefore, 
encourage the Army to evaluate establishing a research facility 
that supports chiropractic medicine for military applications.

                 Advanced Submarine System Development

      The conference agreement includes a program reduction of 
$20,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. In fiscal year 2006 
budget deliberations, the Department of Defense added 
$600,000,000 over the future years defense plan (FYDP) for 
development of an advanced undersea superiority system. The 
conferees reduce this project by $20,000,000, and direct the 
Office of the Secretary of Defense, in consultation with the 
Department of the Navy, to submit a comprehensive plan 
describing the scope, objectives, schedules, and project costs 
for this program over the FYDP. In addition, the report should 
discuss how these additional efforts fit in with ongoing Navy 
and DARPA programs in both advanced submarine development and 
antisubmarine warfare. This plan should be submitted to the 
congressional defense committees not later than March 1, 2006.

                   Joint Tactical Radio System--Navy

      The conference agreement includes a reduction of 
$80,800,000 to the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS)--Navy 
program, instead of $50,766,000 as proposed by the House and 
$30,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conferees agree that 
none of this reduction should be applied against the 
Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) project.

           University National Ocean Laboratory System Fleet

      The conferees agree that, if funds are requested in 
fiscal year 2007 for recapitalization of the University 
National Ocean Laboratory System (UNOLS) fleet of research 
vessels, such funds should be requested in the Shipbuilding and 
Conversion, Navy (SCN) appropriation.

                        Military Dental Research

      The conferees remain deeply concerned about the provision 
of quality medical care to our injured troops as they return 
from conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. Head and neck trauma 
account for almost 50 percent of these injuries and are 
presenting the most difficult long-term morbidity challenges, 
particularly for our military's oral surgeons. Army and Naval 
researchers at the U.S. Army Dental Trauma and Research 
Detachment at the Great Lakes facility are developing 
innovative protective equipment and rapid-read diagnostic tests 
to help reduce the severity and number of casualties. The 
conferees are encouraged by this research and provide 
$3,400,000 to further the development of these and other 
protective measures.

                              Space Radar

      The conferees have reviewed the authorization and 
appropriation language of the various committees of 
jurisdiction for the Space Radar program and note that there 
appears to be broad congressional consensus on many key issues. 
First, in the absence of a major breakthrough, there is 
significant across the board concern regarding the ultimate 
cost and affordability of the Space Radar program. Second, 
there is concern about the space acquisition workforce and the 
Air Force and industry's ability to manage expensive and 
complicated satellite programs such as Space Radar. Finally, 
there is broad agreement that the Air Force should place 
greater emphasis on maturing technologies, seeking out new 
technical breakthroughs, experimenting with existing radar 
assets (such as airborne surrogates), and developing critical 
ground processing capabilities instead of focusing so heavily 
on near term satellite system development. The conferees agree 
that the funds provided are only for the elements of 
congressional consensus described above. Further, the conferees 
agree with the House direction requiring submission of a spend 
plan prior to obligation of fiscal year 2006 funds.

                     Transformational SATCOM (TSAT)

      The conferees support the Defense Department's concept 
for global high-speed communications and recognize the value 
that TSAT-like capabilities would provide to world-wide 
military operations. However, the conferees are concerned about 
the state of technical maturity for the key subsystems and do 
not support the program's aggressive schedule for acquisition. 
The conferees are also concerned that DoD may have prematurely 
ruled out the possibility of evolving Advanced EHF (AEHF) and 
the Wideband Gapfiller System (WGS) programs to provide TSAT-
like capabilities. Therefore, the conferees agree to reduce the 
program by $400,000,000 and direct the program to focus on 
technology maturation for the key subsystems, particularly 
laser communications and the processor router. Transition to a 
formal acquisition program should be deferred until the 
technologies are mature and have been demonstrated in a 
relevant environment.
      Of the remaining $436,769,000, the conferees direct that 
no more than $316,769,000 may be obligated until DoD submits to 
the congressional defense committees the results of an 
independent review that: (1) determines whether additional AEHF 
or WGS satellites will be required and how many; and (2) 
whether it is feasible, taking into consideration cost, risk, 
contract requirements, and other factors, to insert advanced 
capabilities by evolving the AEHF or WGS programs. In the event 
the Department determines a fourth AEHF is required, 
$120,000,000 shall be available for advance procurement and 
research and development activities in support of the fourth 
AEHF. In the event the Defense Department determines a fourth 
AEHF is not required, the $120,000,000 shall be available to 
support expanded system development and maturation of the key 
TSAT technologies.

               Joint Unmanned Combat Air Systems (J-UCAS)

      The conferees are concerned over whether the Navy and Air 
Force share the same requirements and concept of operations for 
the J-UCAS. Given that the Department of Defense proposes to 
make substantial investments in the J-UCAS program, exceeding 
$5 billion for development alone, it is important to ensure 
from the outset that there is stability in the program. Given 
these concerns, the conferees have reduced the budget request 
by $40,090,000 and direct the Department of Defense to conduct 
an independent study to objectively review the J-UCAS program 
for both Navy and Air Force technical, military operations, and 
test and evaluation requirements, as well as options for cost 
savings. The conferees direct that the report include a 
schedule and budget for the J-UCAS program, to include entering 
system development and demonstration, and an evaluation of the 
Air Force as the Executive Agent. The conferees further direct 
that the report provide an analysis and recommendation on 
whether the Air Force and Navy programs are sufficiently 
different in their respective requirements and level of 
development to merit separation into service unique programs. 
The report should be provided to the congressional defense 
committees not later than May 3, 2006.

                   Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR-X)

      The conferees are concerned that a major development 
effort for the CSAR-X program could be cost prohibitive and 
would not yield a sufficient number of helicopters to replace 
the Air Force's current aging fleet in a timely manner. Due to 
these concerns, the conferees expect the Air Force to select an 
existing aircraft that will require minimum research and 
development to field and that presents an overall ``best 
value'' to the government, giving full consideration to 
military utility and costs in the contract selection process. 
The conferees agree to reduce the request by $42,000,000 due to 
a delay in the request for proposal and contract award date. 
The conferees further agree to restrict $66,069,000, of the 
available $71,825,000, pending the submission of a report to 
the congressional defense committees with detailed cost and 
schedule estimates for development and production. The report 
shall be submitted following contract award and also include 
estimated operation and support costs, necessary military 
configuration modifications, and a test and evaluation plan.

   Joint Surveillance and Target Attack Radar System (JointSTARS) Re-
                                Engining

      The conferees have provided $12,500,000 to begin the non-
recurring engineering (NRE) activities associated with re-
engining the JointSTARS aircraft fleet and expect the Secretary 
of the Air Force to include funding for NRE activities in the 
FY 2007 budget request. The conferees note that in January 2005 
the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and 
Logistics announced the Department's intent to request updated 
quotes from industry on the costs to modify JointSTARS aircraft 
with new engines, and that the Department is currently in the 
process of evaluating these quotes. Upon completion of this 
activity, the conferees direct the Secretary of the Air Force 
to submit to the congressional defense committees an evaluation 
of potential development and acquisition options for re-
engining all or part of the JointSTARS aircraft fleet.

            Real-Time Measurement Weight and Balance System

      The conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense, 
Comptroller, to transfer fiscal year 2005 Air Force Research, 
Development, Test and Evaluation funding for the ``Real-Time 
Measurement Weight and Balance System'' to Research, 
Development, Test and Evaluation, Navy, Line 182, Aviation 
Improvements.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                            Initiative Funds

      The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to provide 
quarterly reports beginning the first fiscal quarter after the 
enactment of this Act to the congressional defense committees 
detailing the specific programs that are funded from the Quick 
Reaction Special Projects, the Counter Terrorism Technology 
Support Program and the Combating Terrorism Technology Task 
Force funds. The reports should include project descriptions 
with their respective schedule and funding requirement, 
transition plans to the services for further development and 
lessons learned from completed projects. The conferees further 
direct the Secretary to provide the reports to the Director of 
National Intelligence and the Secretary of Homeland Security.

                Chemical and Biological Defense Program

      The conference agreement provides an increase of 
$21,000,000 for the Chemical and Biological Defense Initiative. 
The Secretary of Defense is directed to allocate these funds 
among the programs that yield the greatest gain in our chem-bio 
defensive posture. The conferees further direct that such funds 
may not be obligated until 15 days after a report, including a 
description of projects to be funded, is provided to the 
congressional defense committees.

                     Operationally Responsive Space

      The conference agreement includes an increase of 
$39,000,000 for Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) projects. 
Of this amount, $20,000,000 is only for standardized bus 
development, and $19,000,000 is only for operationally 
responsive payload development.

                       Asymmetric Missile Threat

      The conferees are increasingly concerned about the 
possibility of an asymmetric missile threat against the United 
States homeland where terrorists would move short-range 
missiles closer to the United States on sea-based platforms. 
The conferees recommend $10,000,000 to conduct a comprehensive 
analysis on the need for and deployment of an asymmetric 
missile defense capability, including both land and sea-based 
solutions, against the full range of asymmetric missile 
threats. Accordingly, the Director of the Defense Intelligence 
Agency shall provide a report to the congressional defense 
committees not later than March 1, 2006, which examines this 
threat and assesses its validity. Based on those findings, the 
Director of the Missile Defense Agency, in consultation with 
U.S. Northern Command and U.S. Strategic Command, shall provide 
a report to the congressional defense committees not later than 
June 1, 2006, that provides its recommendations for deployment 
options of an asymmetric missile defense capability that would 
protect population centers, use mature technologies, and 
include progressions for spiral technology upgrades that would 
enhance missile defense capabilities over time.

                       Kinetic Energy Interceptor

      The conference agreement provides $215,952,000 for the 
Kinetic Energy Interceptor instead of $202,246,000 as proposed 
by the House and $104,952,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
conferees direct the Missile Defense Agency to execute the 
program as proposed in the fiscal year 2006 President's Budget.

                                 NFIRE

      The conferees encourage the Missile Defense Agency to 
continue development and mission integration of the deployable 
NFIRE Kill Vehicle.

                       High Performance Computing

      The Fiscal Year 2002 Defense Appropriations Act directed 
the Secretary of Defense to submit a development and 
acquisition plan for a comprehensive, long-range, integrated, 
high-end computing program to Congress by July 1, 2002. The 
report, ``High Performance Computing for the National Security 
Community'', was submitted to Congress on April 9, 2003. The 
letter accompanying the report stated that, ``Over the next 6 
months, the Department will develop an appropriate 
implementation plan for high-end computing, working in close 
coordination with other government agencies.'' The conferees 
are concerned that the Department has not developed an 
implementation plan as promised. Therefore, the conferees 
direct the Office of the Secretary of Defense to submit to 
Congress no later than 90 days after enactment of this Act a 
report outlining plans for implementing and funding the 
Integrated High-End Computing (IHEC) Program and for creating a 
Joint Program Office to oversee the program. The conferees 
encourage the Secretary of Defense to include and fully fund a 
complete IHEC program in the President's Budget for FY 2007.

                        Identity Authentication

      The conferees are aware that the Department of Defense 
has a pressing need to acquire and deploy systems that 
authenticate the identities of individuals seeking access to 
its installations. The conferees believe that acquisition of 
such systems should be based on sound performance requirements 
and take advantage of the innovation and capabilities of the 
commercial marketplace. Such systems should draw on a variety 
of bona fide data sources (including those maintained by the 
Department) to permit access only to those who require it.

                TITLE V--REVOLVING AND MANAGEMENT FUNDS


                     Defense Working Capital Funds

      The conferees recommend an appropriation of 
$1,154,940,000 for the Defense Working Capital Funds as 
proposed by the Senate instead of $1,154,340,000 as proposed by 
the House.

                     National Defense Sealift Fund

       The conferees agree to provide a total of $1,089,056,000 
for the National Defense Sealift Fund instead of $1,599,459,000 
as proposed by the House and $579,954,000 as proposed by the 
Senate.
       The conference agreement on items addressed by either 
the House or the Senate is as follows:

                    T-AKE Dry Cargo/Ammunition Ship

      The conferees agree to provide $380,143,000 to purchase 
one T-AKE cargo ship, as requested by the Department of 
Defense. The House version of the bill included additional 
funds to purchase one more T-AKE ship, whereas the Senate 
proposed eliminating funding for this program.
      The conferees understand that approving the Department's 
request will likely cause a break in the contract between the 
Navy and the shipbuilder. As such, the conferees intend to 
closely monitor possible contract renegotiations on this 
program to ensure that any cost increases are justified by 
legitimate changes in Navy requirements or other legitimate 
equitable adjustments.

         Reprogramming Guidance for the Defense Health Program

      Any additional funds provided by the conferees for 
programs and/or activities above the budget request are to be 
considered as congressional special interest items for the 
purpose of the Base for Reprogramming Form (DD 1414). 
Therefore, each of these items must be submitted to the 
Subcommittee on Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs, 
and Related Agencies of the Committee on Appropriations of the 
House of Representatives and the Subcommittee on Defense of the 
Committee on Appropriations of the Senate on a DD 1414 at the 
stated amount.

 Reprogramming Guidance for the Direct (In-House) Care Budget Activity

      The conferees remain concerned regarding the transfer of 
funds from Direct (or In-house) Care to pay for contractor-
provided medical care. To limit such transfers and continue 
oversight within the Defense Health Program operation and 
maintenance account, the conferees have included bill language 
which limits the funds available for Private Sector Care under 
the TRICARE program subject to prior approval reprogramming 
procedures. In addition, the conferees also designate the 
funding for the Direct Care System as a special interest item, 
as defined elsewhere in this report. Any transfer of funds from 
the Direct (or In-house) Care budget activity into the Private 
Sector Care Budget activity will require the Department of 
Defense to follow prior approval reprogramming procedures. The 
bill language and accompanying report language included by the 
conferees should not be interpreted by the Department as 
limiting the amount of funds that may be transferred to the 
direct care system from other budget activities within the 
Defense Health Program.
       In addition, the conferees direct the Department of 
Defense to provide budget execution data for all of the Defense 
Health Program accounts. Such budget execution data shall be 
provided quarterly through the DD-COMP(M) 1002 accounting form 
and delivered to the Subcommittee on Military Quality of Life 
and Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies of the Committee on 
Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the 
Subcommittee on Defense of the Committee on Appropriations of 
the Senate not later than one week after the conclusion of the 
quarter.

                          Private Sector Care

      During the fiscal year 2006 budget briefs the 
documentation presented was wrought with errors making it 
extremely difficult to follow specifics regarding the total 
program requirement. Therefore, the conferees direct the 
Department to notify the Subcommittee on Military Quality of 
Life and Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies of the 
Committee on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and 
the Subcommittee on Defense of the Committee on Appropriations 
of the Senate on the movement of dollars within the private 
sector care budget activity group on a quarterly basis 
beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2006. The 
quarterly reports are to be delivered not later than one week 
after the conclusion of the quarter.

    GAO Report Request on the Department of Defense Pharmacy Program

      The conferees direct that the Government Accountability 
Office (GAO) conduct a review of the Department of Defense's 
Pharmacy Program. The review should include, but not be limited 
to the following: (1) Federal pricing controls implemented for 
retail pharmacy; (2) pharmacy growth above inflation, increased 
demand and utilization; (3) comparison of to the National rate 
and the Department of Defense rate; and (4) assumed savings in 
fiscal years 2005, 2006 and 2007 from Federal pricing. Further, 
the review should be made available to the congressional 
defense committees not later than April 1, 2006.

                 Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program

      The Senate recommended $50,000,000 for a Peer Reviewed 
Medical Research program. The conferees agree to provide 
$50,000,000 for this program, and recommend the following 
projects as candidates for study: advanced proteomics; 
alcoholism research; autism; blood-related cancer research such 
as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma; childhood asthma; 
chronic pain and fatigue research; childhood cancer research; 
diabetes research; Duchenne's disease research; eye and vision 
research; fibromyalgia; Interstitial Cystitis Syndrome; kidney 
cancer research; Lupus Research; osteoporosis and bone-related 
diseases; polycystic kidney disease; pulmonary hypertension; 
Padget's disease; post traumatic stress disorders; social work 
research; and autoimmune diseases such as scleroderma and 
Sjogren's syndrome.
      The conferees direct the Department to provide a report 
by March 1, 2006, on the status of this Peer Reviewed Medical 
Research Program.

            Defense and Veterans Head Injury Program Funding

      The conferees are concerned with the management of the 
funds for the Defense and Veterans Head Injury Program (DVHIP). 
Therefore the conferees direct that the President's Budget 
request of $7,000,000 for DVHIP, as well as any other funds 
directed to this program, be transferred from the Uniformed 
Services University of the Health Science (USUHS) to the Army 
Medical Research and Materiel Command (AMRMC) at Fort Detrick 
beginning in fiscal year 2006.

     Blast Injury Prevention, Mitigation, and Treatment Initiative

      The Military Health System has seen an increase in the 
number of traumatic brain and head injuries to servicemembers 
as a result of ongoing combat operations. Therefore, the 
conferees have provided $12,600,000 for the Blast Injury 
Prevention, Mitigation, and Treatment Initiative to increase 
research, diagnosis and treatment for servicemembers afflicted 
with these types of injuries. The conferees also expect the 
Defense and Veterans Head Injury Program (DVHIP) to have a 
substantial role in the use of these funds as the DVHIP has 
been an integral part of research, diagnosis, and treatment 
since 1991.

                   Smoking and Tobacco Use Cessation

      The House and Senate both expressed concern over the 
costs associated with smoking and tobacco cessation products 
and that they are not reimbursable under TRICARE Prime. 
Additionally, the conferees are concerned that the Department 
has not been aggressively incorporating suggested pilot 
programs.
       The conferees direct the Department to report to the 
congressional defense committees not later than March 1, 2006 
on the Department's plan to address these concerns. The report 
should include, but not be limited to, the following subjects:
      --Pilot projects to be incorporated with the TRICARE 
Prime benefit;
      --Measures that will be taken by the military services to 
expedite tobacco use prevention and cessation programs 
available to all military personnel;
      --A plan that the Secretary of Defense determines 
appropriate for improving the out of pocket costs to military 
personnel for smoking cessation products; and
      --A plan for continuing the ``Healthy Choices for Life'' 
demonstration program.

  Directed Mission Upgrades of the Defense Medical Logistics Standard 
                         Support System (DMLSS)

      The Department of Defense has mandated that its suppliers 
use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) on all cases in the 
supply chain by 2008. For this to happen, RFID technology must 
be integrated into the DMLSS by January 1, 2007. The conferees 
are disturbed that the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) 
mandated this policy initiative while at the same time allowing 
the TRICARE Management Activity to cut the budget for this 
program in fiscal year 2006. This action reduces the DMLSS 
development budget for new capabilities and defers development 
to fiscal year 2010 and deployment to fiscal year 2011.
      Therefore, the conferees have provided $4,300,000 to help 
prevent this program from slipping further and direct the 
Department to fully fund this initiative in the fiscal year 
2007 budget and beyond to ensure the Department's established 
goal is reached.

            Special Mental Health Care--TRICARE South Region

      The conferees are aware of the growing need for post 
traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and special mental health care 
treatment and the growing number of Active and Reserve 
Component soldiers returning to the southeast region requiring 
such specialized care. The conferees direct the Assistant 
Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, in conjunction with 
the TRICARE Regional Director for the South to report, not 
later than March 1, 2006 to the congressional defense 
committees with a plan to expand existing capabilities to 
ensure that potential regional PTSD and related mental health 
challenges in this area are adequately addressed, to include 
Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.

                         DoD/VA Patient Records

      The conferees are aware that the Department of Defense 
and the Department of Veterans Affairs do not presently share 
in real time the medical records of patients that transfer 
between their two systems, despite existing technology which 
could allow such sharing. The conferees are concerned that 
patient care may be compromised as a result and understand that 
the Navy has proposed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) 
between Bethesda Naval Hospital and a regional polytrauma VA 
hospital to allow two physicians at each institution to have 
unlimited electronic access to the medical records of patients 
they have shared or are about to share. The conferees direct 
the Secretaries of Defense and Veterans Affairs to establish a 
similar system of medical record sharing which will allow 
physicians at Bethesda, Walter Reed or other DoD medical 
facilities, and hospitals in the VA system real time access to 
the records of their patients at each of the other 
institutions.
      The conferees further direct the Secretary of Defense and 
the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to report to the 
congressional defense committees not later than April 1, 2006 
on a plan, including cost, to achieve medical record sharing.

         Blue Grass and Pueblo Chemical Demilitarization Sites

      The conferees have provided up to $51,000,000 in Chemical 
Agents and Munitions Destruction, Army, R&D funding to support 
planning, design, and construction of facilities at the Blue 
Grass and Pueblo Chemical Demilitarization sites. The conferees 
note this is a one-time exception to assist the Department of 
Defense to re-start the critical work that must be accomplished 
at these two sites in order for the Nation to comply with the 
Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) Treaty. Further, the 
conferees direct the Department of Defense to request the 
appropriate authorizations and appropriations in order to 
continue and complete the Blue Grass and Pueblo sites, and that 
these requirements be reflected in its fiscal year 2007 budget 
submission.

         Drug Interdiction and Counter-Drug Activities, Defense

      The conference agreement includes $917,651,000 for ``Drug 
Interdiction and Counter-Drug Activities, Defense'' as opposed 
to $906,941,000 as proposed by the House and $926,821,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. Adjustments to the budget request are

                  TITLE IX--ADDITIONAL APPROPRIATIONS

      The following table provides details of the supplemental 
appropriations in this title.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                         Reporting Requirements

      The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to provide 
a report to the congressional defense committees within 30 days 
of enactment of this legislation on the allocation of the funds 
within the accounts listed in this title. The Secretary shall 
submit updated reports 30 days after the end of each fiscal 
quarter until funds listed in this title are no longer 
available for obligation. The conferees direct that these 
reports shall include: a detailed accounting of obligations and 
expenditures of appropriations provided in this title by 
program and subactivity group for the continuation of the war 
in Iraq and Afghanistan; and a listing of equipment procured 
using funds provided in this title. The conferees expect that 
in order to meet unanticipated requirements, the Department of 
Defense may need to transfer funds within these appropriation 
accounts for purposes other than those specified in this 
report. The conferees direct the Department of Defense to 
follow normal prior approval reprogramming procedures should it 
be necessary to transfer funding between different 
appropriations accounts in this title.
      Additionally, the conferees direct that the bi-annual 
reporting requirements of section 9010 of Public Law 108-287, 
the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2005, regarding 
the military operations of the Armed Forces and the 
reconstruction activities of the Department of Defense in Iraq 
and Afghanistan shall apply to the funds appropriated in this 
Act.

                           Military Personnel

appropriations in this title.

                       Operation and Maintenance

      The following table provides details of the supplemental 
appropriations in this title.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

             Home Station Readiness Training and Logistics

      In this title the conferees recommend $50,000,000,000 as 
a ``bridge fund'' in support of ongoing contingency operations 
related to the Global War on Terror, including $33,217,848,000 
in the operation and maintenance accounts. Substantial funding 
will be required to support continuing combat and security 
operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. The conferees understand 
that substantial amounts will be needed as well in support of 
unit mobilizations, specialized pre-deployment training, 
transportation to and from the areas of operation, home station 
recovery and reset, and post-deployment training to ensure 
recovery to established readiness standards for full spectrum 
combat operations around the world. Specialized training before 
deployment, and retraining after deployment, with the 
associated transportation, base operations, logistical, 
maintenance and reset costs, though accrued at home station, 
should be attributed to the continuing combat and peacekeeping 
operations. To the extent that such training, maintenance and 
reset activities displace normal peacetime training events, the 
amounts provided in home station operation and maintenance 
lines have been reduced. The Department of Defense should 
allocate title IX operation and maintenance funding 
accordingly, to ensure full support for pre-deployment and 
post-deployment operations, as well as for continuing combat 
and security operations in support of the Global War on Terror.

                           Iraq Freedom Fund

      The conference agreement includes $4,658,686,000 for the 
Iraq Freedom Fund. Of this amount, $1,360,000,000 is for the 
IED Defeat Task Force, $3,048,686,000 is for classified 
activities described further in a classified annex to this 
report, and $250,000,000 is for emergent needs for the Global 
War on Terror. Additionally, the conference agreement provides 
that up to $100,000,000 shall be available for the Department 
of Homeland Security, ``United States Coast Guard, Operating 
Expenses''.

                              Procurement

      The following table provides details of the supplemental 
appropriations in this title.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                  National Guard and Reserve Equipment

      The conferees agree to provide $1,000,000,000 in title IX 
for National Guard and Reserve Equipment, to be distributed as 
follows: $700,000,000 for the Army National Guard; $200,000,000 
for the Air National Guard; $100,000,000 for the Army Reserve. 
The conferees agree that to the maximum extent possible, the 
National Guard equipment provided in title IX should be 
equipment identified by the Chief of the National Guard Bureau 
to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees in the 
September 22, 2005 document entitled ``National Guard Equipment 
Requirements, Protecting America at Home and Abroad''. The 
conferees direct the Chief of the National Guard Bureau and the 
Chief of the Army Reserve to submit to the congressional 
defense committees a report specifying the items to be procured 
with this funding and a fielding plan for this equipment not 
later than 30 days after the enactment of this Act.

               Research, Development, Test and Evaluation

      The following table provides details of the supplemental 
appropriations in this title.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

           Interoperable Communications in Disaster Response

      The conferees recognize the need to ensure rapid and 
uninterrupted communications between Federal, state, and local 
first responders and the National Guard. As recently 
demonstrated in the response to Hurricane Katrina, 
communications breakdowns limit the Guard's ability to respond 
effectively and rapidly in either a man-made or natural 
disaster. The conferees fully support the National Guard 
Bureau's initiatives to develop interoperable and reliable 
communications. Of particular interest is the Joint CONUS 
Communications Support Enterprise team concept. As a part of 
this initiative, the conferees are aware that the National 
Guard Bureau has developed a concept called the National Guard 
Bureau Incident Area Communications Program. This program would 
deploy a software-based solution that improves interoperability 
by enabling disparate communications devices and networks to 
work together. Therefore, the conferees urge the Department of 
Defense to fully fund this initiative to ensure a robust 
interoperable solution for the National Guard to meet its first 
responder communications needs.

                          Joint Network Nodes

      The conferees agree to provide $175,000,000 for 
procurement of the Joint Network Nodes (JNN) program in title 
IX, Other Procurement, Army, within the Bridge to Future 
Networks line. The House and Senate continue to support the 
procurement of JNN based on the Army requirement to respond to 
the urgent needs of ground forces for tactical communications. 
The conferees are concerned, however, that the Army is not 
evolving its network communications programs at a sufficiently 
fast rate from JNN to objective WIN-T capability. For example, 
JNN funding contained in title IX could resource a JNN+ 
capability that moves network communication capability closer 
to the WIN-T requirement. Therefore, the conferees direct the 
Army to submit a report not later than January 15, 2006, 
detailing its plans to procure evolutionary capability in its 
network communications programs.

              Improvised Explosive Device Countermeasures

      The conferees support DoD efforts to provide the 
strongest possible defense against the Improvised Explosive 
Device (IED) threat faced in theater, and provide not less than 
$1,360,000,000 in the Iraq Freedom Fund (IFF) for this purpose. 
The conferees are aware of several specific Service 
requirements along these lines and direct the Joint IED Task 
Force to fully fund validated Army and Marine Corps 
requirements for Backscatter Radars and related equipment, and 
H2K ICE Jammers. In addition, the conferees direct the Task 
Force to provide quarterly updates to the congressional defense 
committees, to include assessments of the evolving threat posed 
to war fighters by IEDs, individual Service requirements to 
counter this threat, and a report on the execution of funds 
provided to the Joint IED Task Force.
      In addition, the conferees recognize and commend the 
ongoing effort of the Department of Defense to develop the next 
generation of countermeasures for IEDs. Furthermore, the 
conferees note that current counter-IED systems deployed in 
Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom provide 
an important force protection capability. The conferees, 
therefore, direct the Department to continue procurement of 
sufficient quantities of currently deployed counter-IED 
technologies and, where applicable, to provide those systems 
with available upgrades.

      Adjustments to classified programs are addressed in the 
classified annex accompanying this Joint Explanatory Statement.

                         Reporting Requirements

      The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to provide 
a report to the congressional defense committees within 30 days 
of enactment of this legislation on the allocation of the funds 
within the accounts listed in this chapter. The Secretary shall 
submit updated reports 30 days after the end of each fiscal 
quarter until funds listed in this chapter are no longer 
available for obligation. The conferees direct that these 
reports shall include: a detailed accounting, by programs and 
subactivity groups, of obligations and expenditures of 
appropriations provided in this chapter for the continuation of 
relief and recovery operations from the storm damage; and a 
listing of equipment procured using funds provided in this 
chapter.
      The conferees expect that in order to meet unanticipated 
requirements, the Department of Defense may need to transfer 
funds within these appropriations accounts for purposes other 
than those specified in this chapter. The conferees expect the 
Department to follow normal prior-approval reprogramming 
procedures should it be necessary to transfer funding between 
different appropriations accounts in this chapter.

                   Oversight of Procurement Programs

      The conference agreement provides $1,987,000,000 for 
extraordinary shipbuilding and ship repair costs and 
$42,000,000, above the budget request, for production of the 
Army Armored Security Vehicle (ASV). This funding is intended 
to cover costs relating to real property damage, including 
damage to government- and contractor-furnished equipment; 
cleanup of facilities; business interruption, to include idle 
payroll; temporary housing and transportation for employees; 
and additional business expenses, including but not limited to 
power, security, information technology support, and necessary 
equipment rentals.
      The conferees believe these expenses require special 
oversight by the Department of Defense and the Congress. 
Accordingly, the conferees direct that none of the funds 
provided for ``Shipbuilding and Conversion, Navy'' or for the 
Army ASV shall be obligated or expended until 30 days after the 
Secretary of the Navy or Secretary of the Army, as applicable, 
submits a report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations certifying that the increased direct and 
indirect costs relating to contractor-funded programs are: (a) 
incurred or required to be incurred for hurricane relief; (b) 
not subject to reimbursement by any third party (e.g., FEMA or 
private insurer); and (c) directly allocable to the program for 
which funds are being provided. All such costs shall be subject 
to review, audit, and validation by appropriate management 
officials of the military service, including the Government 
Procurement Contracting Officer and service audit teams. 
Approved costs will be reimbursed as they are incurred with no 
application of general and administrative overhead or profit.

                               CHAPTER 3


                      DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE--CIVIL


                         DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY


                       Corps of Engineers--Civil

      The conference agreement provides emergency funding to 
address water resource projects damaged by Hurricanes Katrina, 
Rita, Ophelia and Wilma. The funding provided in this chapter 
is based on Corps of Engineers' estimates of the requirements 
of all areas of the Nation impacted by these hurricanes. The 
conferees expect the funds provided herein shall be expended 
substantially in accordance with those estimates.

                             INVESTIGATIONS

      Funds totaling $37,300,000 are provided to expedite 
ongoing studies in the areas recently affected by recent 
hurricanes, as shown below:

Louisiana Coastal Area Ecosystem Restoration, LA........     $11,000,000
Hurricane Protection, LA................................      12,000,000
Hurricane Protection, MS................................      10,000,000
Plaquemines Parish, Urban Flood Control, LA.............       1,200,000
St. Bernard Parish Urban Flood Control, LA..............       1,200,000
St. Charles Parish Urban Flood Control, LA..............       1,100,000
Southwest Coastal Louisiana, LA.........................         500,000
Bouge Banks, NC.........................................         100,000
Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands, NC.......................         100,000
Surf City and North Topsail Beach, NC...................         100,000

      The conference agreement includes $11,000,000 for the 
Louisiana Coastal Area Ecosystem study. These funds, together 
with $10,000,000 provided in the Energy and Water Development 
Appropriations Act, 2006, provide the amounts necessary to 
continue the Louisiana Coastal Plan this fiscal year. Within 
these amounts, funds are provided for hurricane or storm damage 
assessment, including coastal data collection.
      The conference agreement includes a provision that 
withholds funding provided for the Louisiana Hurricane 
Protection Study in this Act until the State of Louisiana 
establishes a single state or quasi-state entity to act as the 
local sponsor for construction, operation and maintenance for 
all hurricane, storm damage reduction and flood control 
projects in the greater New Orleans and southeast Louisiana 
area. The conferees expect that no funds shall be available for 
the final report after the completion of the preliminary 
technical report until a functioning single entity is 
established by the State to meet local responsibilities for 
Federal projects.

                              CONSTRUCTION

      Funds totaling $101,417,000 are provided to repair flood 
and storm damage reduction, commercial navigation and other 
projects damaged by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Ophelia and 
Wilma.
      Citing a lack of authorization, the conferees did not 
provide the request of $250,000,000 for coastal mitigation; 
however, a total of $96,000,000 is available in fiscal year 
2006 for activities related to improving the Gulf Coast coastal 
wetlands to reduce the risk of storm damage to the greater New 
Orleans metropolitan area. In this Act, $11,000,000 is provided 
to further the Louisiana Coastal study in the Investigations 
account, together with $10,000,000 provided in the Energy and 
Water Development Appropriations Act, 2006. In addition, 
$75,000,000 is provided in this Act in the Operations and 
Maintenance account for authorized activities to preserve and 
maintain existing wetlands, enhance estuarine habitat and 
provide erosion protection for hurricane protection projects. 
The conferees encourage the Administration to submit a 
legislative proposal to the appropriate authorizing committees 
for full and further consideration.

 FLOOD CONTROL, MISSISSIPPI RIVER AND TRIBUTARIES, ARKANSAS, ILLINOIS, 
        KENTUCKY, LOUISIANA, MISSISSIPPI, MISSOURI AND TENNESSEE

      Funds totaling $153,750,000 are provided to repair 
levees; remove hazards to navigation; cover the increased cost 
of mat laying operations due to storm impacts; repair damaged 
training works, including dikes; and repair damaged levees to 
provide protection from riverine flooding resulting from 
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

                       OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE

      Funds totaling $327,517,000 are provided to restore 
navigation channels and harbors to pre-storm conditions and to 
repair flood damage reduction and other projects in states 
affected by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Ophelia and Wilma. Of 
this amount, $75,000,000 is provided for authorized operation 
and maintenance activities to enhance estuarine habitats 
through monitoring and control of marine and river flow and 
reef building initiatives and providing foreshore bank 
protection in the form of revetment and rock placement to 
protect endangered wetlands and provide erosion protection for 
hurricane protection projects along the Mississippi River-Gulf 
Outlet Channel. The expenditure of funds shall be limited to 
those activities necessary for the protection of existing 
wetlands, navigation, flood and storm damage reduction projects 
along the Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet Channel and funds shall 
not be expended on any project that would otherwise preclude or 
foreclose any final disposition of the navigation channel; 
funds are not available to conduct any dredging of the 
Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet Channel.

                 FLOOD CONTROL AND COASTAL EMERGENCIES

      Funds totaling $2,277,965,000 are provided to continue 
repairs to flood and storm damage reduction projects in states 
affected by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Ophelia and Wilma. Funds 
are provided to fund at full Federal expense repairs to non-
federal levees and pumps and to construct levees and floodwalls 
to original design levels rather than pre-storm conditions. 
Within the funds provided, $75,000,000 shall be available to 
accelerate completion of authorized projects in the State of 
Mississippi along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
      Further, this amount includes $544,460,000 to accelerate 
the completion of unconstructed portions of authorized 
hurricane, storm damage reduction and flood control projects in 
the greater New Orleans and south Louisiana area, as follows:

New Orleans to Venice, LA...............................     $32,487,000

      The conference agreement includes $70,000,000 to prepare 
for flood, hurricane and other natural disasters and support 
emergency operations, repairs, and other activities in response 
to flood and hurricane emergencies, as authorized by law. 
Funding is provided to cover annual recurring costs of the 
program as well as costs related to recent natural disasters. 
The Army Corps of Engineers is directed to include recurring 
annual funding requirements for this program in its fiscal year 
2007 budget request and to address event-related costs in the 
appropriate emergency supplemental requests.
       The conference agreement includes approximately 
$468,000,000 to reimburse projects from which funds were 
transferred to meet emergency requirements.

                            GENERAL EXPENSES

      Funds totaling $1,600,000 are provided for additional 
oversight and management costs associated with Hurricanes 
Katrina and Rita.

                               CHAPTER 4

                    DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

            Office of the Secretary and Executive Management

                            OFFICE OF POLICY

      The conferees agree to clarify Public Law 109-90 does not 
include an increase of $1,512,000 and 3 full-time equivalent 
positions for the Embassy Baghdad Initiative requested in the 
President's Fiscal Year 2006 Budget. Public Law 109-90 does 
include the transfer of $5,176,000 to the Office of Policy for 
the Border and Transportation Security Policy Office and 
Operations staff. Any fiscal year 2005 funding for a Department 
of Homeland Security (DHS) attache in Baghdad included in this 
amount is continued in fiscal year 2006 at the fiscal year 2005 
level. The conferees prohibit the use of any funds available to 
the Department for increasing resources for the Embassy Baghdad 
Initiative beyond the fiscal year 2005 level without approval 
of a reprogramming notification submitted pursuant to Section 
503 of Public Law 109-90. The conferees provide this 
clarification to ensure the Department's actions are consistent 
with the intent of the Committees as indicated in the Statement 
of Managers accompanying the fiscal year 2006 appropriations 
conference report. The Department is directed to submit within 
15 days of enactment of this Act to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations a fiscal year 2006 program, 
project, and activity breakdown of the funding and staffing 
level of the Office of Policy including the $5,176,000 transfer 
for the Office of Policy.

                     Customs and Border Protection

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conferees agree to provide $24,100,000 instead of 
$27,100,000 as proposed by the President to repair and replace 
critical information technology, equipment, and property 
damaged by Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters.

                              CONSTRUCTION

      The conferees agree to provide $10,400,000 for planning, 
engineering, and other equipment for structures damaged by 
Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters instead of 
$26,700,000 as proposed by the President. The conferees are 
aware of uncertainty associated with the replacement of various 
facilities damaged by recent hurricanes and direct Customs and 
Border Protection to submit to the House and Senate Committees 
on Appropriations a detailed estimate of the total cost of 
replacing these facilities once relocation sites and total 
costs are determined. Funds are available until expended.

                  Immigration and Customs Enforcement

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conferees agree to provide $13,000,000, instead of 
$13,848,000 as requested by the President to repair and replace 
critical information technology, communications equipment, and 
facilities damaged by Hurricane Katrina and other natural 
disasters.

                       United States Coast Guard

                           OPERATING EXPENSES

      The conferees agree to provide $132,000,000 instead of 
$139,300,000 as requested by the President for clean-up and 
repair needs at facilities damaged by Hurricane Katrina and 
other natural disasters; activation of reservists to assist in 
hurricane recovery efforts; and repair and replacement of 
equipment, materials, and supplies lost due to these 
hurricanes. Funds are available until expended.

              ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION, AND IMPROVEMENTS

      The conferees agree to provide $74,500,000 instead of 
$136,660,000 as proposed by the President for major repair and 
reconstruction projects at facilities damaged by Hurricane 
Katrina and other natural disasters, and for damage to vessels 
currently under construction. The conferees are aware of 
uncertainty associated with the replacement of the New Orleans 
Integrated Support Command. The conferees agree to provide 
funding for the survey, planning, and engineering costs related 
to this facility and direct the Coast Guard to submit to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations a detailed 
estimate for the total cost of replacing this facility once a 
relocation site is determined. Funds are available until 
expended.

                          OIL SPILL LIABILITY

      The conferees understand over 3,800 oil spills have been 
caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, with more than 8 million 
gallons of oil spilled from Hurricane Katrina alone. Currently, 
oil pollution response costs are being funded from the Federal 
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Disaster Relief Fund (DRF). 
However, the DRF will not pay for long-term oil removal costs 
and natural resource damages, leaving a significant funding gap 
not addressed in the supplemental request. While oil removal 
costs and damage claims may be eligible under the Oil Spill 
Liability Trust Fund (OSLTF), costs related to Hurricane 
Katrina are expected to easily exceed $1,000,000,000, leaving 
the existing balance of $750,000,000 in the OSLTF in jeopardy. 
The Department is directed to provide the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees an analysis of the projected impacts 
to the OSLTF for any Oil Pollution Act removal and damage costs 
resulting from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and a plan to 
address the expected funding shortfall. This report is due no 
later than March 15, 2006.

                      United States Secret Service


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conferees agree to provide $3,600,000 for equipment, 
vehicle replacement, and personnel relocation due to damage 
caused by Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters.

                    Office for Domestic Preparedness


                        STATE AND LOCAL PROGRAMS

      The conferees agree to provide $10,300,000 for 
replacement equipment for the Prepositioned Equipment Program 
utilized during Hurricane Katrina.
      The conferees agree notification required by Section 508 
of Public Law 109-90 shall include any announcements of grant 
eligibility in which the Department limits the number or type 
of potential grantees.

                  Federal Emergency Management Agency


                 ADMINISTRATIVE AND REGIONAL OPERATIONS

      The conferees agree to provide $17,200,000 instead of 
$87,100,000 as requested by the President to repair and improve 
warning and crisis communication systems, and to ensure proper 
controls are in place over the expenditure and management of 
funds for hurricane response and recovery.

                         PUBLIC HEALTH PROGRAMS

      The conferees are concerned about the National Disaster 
Medical System (NDMS). The conferees direct the Chief Medical 
Officer to provide a report to the House and Senate Committees 
on Appropriations by April 30, 2006, outlining the goals of 
NDMS, the ability of the current program to meet these goals, 
the resources (people, training, and funding) required to 
maintain a system design to rapidly meet nationwide disaster 
medical needs, and the appropriate roles of DHS and the 
Department of Health and Human Services in the oversight and 
management of this critical program.
      The conferees are aware of FEMA's intention to use the 
authority provided by Public Law 109-62 to transfer up to 
$100,000,000 for the NDMS to support medical care as authorized 
by Public Law 107-188. The conferees direct FEMA to provide to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by February 
28, 2006, a spend plan for the amount transferred, including 
the amounts obligated and expended as of the date of the 
report, the methods used for allocating funds, and the rules 
established regarding the expenses eligible for payment from 
this appropriation.

                            DISASTER RELIEF

                          (TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

      The conferees agree to transfer $1,500,000 from the 
Disaster Relief Fund for administrative expenses of the 
Community Disaster Loan program. This funding is in addition to 
the $1,000,000 made available for transfer in Public Law 109-
88. The conferees agree the Department shall notify the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than 15 days 
after a community disaster loan has been awarded. Such 
notification shall include the amount of the loan, a brief 
assessment of the borrower's financial position, reasons for 
the necessity of the loan, and a description of the essential 
services to be provided through the loan.
      The conferees believe a comprehensive long-term recovery 
plan is critical for the rehabilitation of the Gulf Coast and 
should be implemented as quickly as possible. The conferees 
direct the Department to provide this plan to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations by February 28, 2006. The 
plan should be prepared in coordination with state and local 
officials as well as other Federal agencies involved in 
recovery efforts.
      The conferees are concerned with the lack of guidance on 
housing assistance. Within two weeks from the date of enactment 
of this Act, the Director of FEMA shall issue guidance used to 
determine continued eligibility for housing assistance under 
the Section 408 program. Consistent with current FEMA 
regulations, such guidance shall include the extension of 
assistance if the recipient is unable to afford local housing 
at the Fair Market Rent level.

                    GENERAL PROVISION--THIS CHAPTER

      Sec. 401. The conferees include a general provision 
allowing the Secretary of Homeland Security to permit active 
duty personnel who performed duties in response to the 
hurricanes to carryover accumulated leave until the end of 
fiscal year 2007.

                               CHAPTER 5

construction costs of the National Park Service related to 
Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma. These funds will be used 
for repair and reconstruction and operational costs incurred in 
responding to and cleaning up from the storms. In addition to 
repair and reconstruction of Federal facilities, the funds 
should be used to repay construction projects from which funds 
were transferred on an emergency basis. They also are available 
to pay for un-reimbursed overtime and operational costs.

                    United States Geological Survey


                 SURVEYS, INVESTIGATIONS, AND RESEARCH

      The conference agreement provides $5,300,000, as 
requested, for surveys, investigations, and research costs of 
the United States Geological Survey. The funds are for facility 
and equipment repair and replacement needs, including stream 
gage repair and replacement, at Survey sites in the Southeast

including immediate recovery costs to purchase new equipment, 
locate temporary offices and additional personnel, and 
operational costs incurred as a result of the hurricanes during 
the first six months after the events.

                LEAKING UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANK PROGRAM

      The conference agreement provides $8,000,000 for the 
leaking underground storage tank program. These funds will be 
used to address the most immediate underground storage tank 
needs in areas affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita; 
including site assessments of leaking tanks to identify 
problems and initiate appropriate corrective actions.

                       DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE


                             Forest Service


                       STATE AND PRIVATE FORESTRY

      The conference agreement provides $30,000,000 for State 
and private forestry instead of providing the $50,000,000 
requested for a new forestry disaster assistance fund. The 
managers believe that the proposed new fund is unnecessary in 
that the activities that would be funded, including assistance 
to timber land owners for debris removal, timber salvage, 
wildfire mitigation, and wildlife habitat stabilization, are 
more appropriately funded within authorized activities under 
the existing State and private forestry account. The funding 
provided should be used for urgently needed activities 
associated with Hurricanes Katrina and Rita recovery, clean-up, 
and restoration. The managers direct the Secretary of 
Agriculture to notify the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on the proposed distribution of funds at least 
ten days before allocating these funds to the field.

                         NATIONAL FOREST SYSTEM

      The conference agreement provides $20,000,000 for the 
national forest system for urgently needed activities 
associated with Hurricanes Katrina and Rita recovery, clean-up, 
and restoration. A portion of these funds may be used for 
hazardous fuels reduction activities on national forest system 
lands. The managers direct the Secretary of Agriculture to 
notify the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the 
proposed distribution of funds at least ten days before 
allocating these funds to the field.

                  CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT AND MAINTENANCE

      The conference agreement provides $7,000,000 for capital 
improvement and maintenance to repair roads and to repair or 
replace hurricane damaged bridges and other facilities in 
National Forests affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

                               CHAPTER 6

                          DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

                 Employment and Training Administration

                    TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

      The conference agreement includes a supplemental 
appropriation of $125,000,000 for the Employment and Training 
Administration to award national emergency grants related to 
the consequences of hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico in 
calendar year 2005. These funds may be used to replace grant 
funds previously obligated to the impacted areas.

     STATE UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE AND EMPLOYMENT SERVICE OPERATIONS

      The conference agreement includes language that extends 
the availability of funds provided under this heading in Public 
Law 108-447, which have been allocated to the States of 
Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The funding shall remain 
available for obligation by those States through September 30, 
2006 and funds used for automation by those States shall remain 
available through September 30, 2008.

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

                Administration for Children and Families

                      SOCIAL SERVICES BLOCK GRANT

      The conference agreement includes a supplemental 
appropriation of $550,000,000 for the Social Services Block 
Grant (SSBG). The conferees note that the hurricanes in the 
Gulf of Mexico in calendar year 2005 have imposed extreme 
demands for social and health care services in affected States. 
States may use SSBG funds for a wide array of human services.
      In addition to other uses, the conferees intend these 
funds to be available to help meet the health care needs of 
people affected by the hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico in 
calendar year 2005 and lacking health insurance or other 
adequate access to care, and to help health care ``safety net'' 
providers restore and resume their operations. Accordingly, the 
conferees have included bill language intended to remove any 
uncertainties as to the eligibility of health care providers 
and facilities (including mental health providers and 
facilities) to receive Social Services Block Grant funds from 
this appropriation. Examples of institutions that could receive 
these funds include community health centers, rural hospitals 
and clinics, community mental health centers, public hospitals, 
and other providers with substantial percentages of uninsured 
patients. In addition to helping meet health care needs arising 
from the hurricanes, funds may be made available for repairs or 
reconstruction needed to allow health centers and similar 
providers to resume or expand operations, or to help key 
providers meet salary and other costs associated with resuming 
or restoring health services.
      The conferees are concerned about the mental health 
impact of the hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico in calendar year 
2005. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 
reports that as many as 500,000 Gulf Coast residents might need 
mental health care. The conferees encourage the Secretary to 
work with State governments in the region to ensure that 
adequate funding is available, within the amounts appropriated, 
for community safety net providers to meet this emerging public 
mental health crisis.

                CHILDREN AND FAMILIES SERVICES PROGRAMS

      The conference agreement includes a supplemental 
appropriation of $90,000,000 for Head Start to serve children 
displaced by the hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico in calendar 
year 2005 and to cover costs associated with renovating Head 
Start facilities, which were affected by the hurricanes, to the 
extent that FEMA and insurance companies do not fully cover 
such costs.

                        DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

      The conference agreement includes a supplemental 
appropriation of $750,000,000 for immediate aid to restart 
school operations and reimburse States for costs already 
incurred in reopening schools affected by the Gulf hurricanes. 
This funding is to be distributed to State educational agencies 
in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas for assistance to 
schools that were impacted by the hurricanes in the Gulf of 
Mexico in calendar year 2005. The State educational agencies 
shall provide services and assistance to local educational 
agencies and non-public schools consistent with provisions 
outlined in section 102 of title IV, division B of this Act.
      The conference agreement includes a supplemental 
appropriation of $5,000,000 for assistance for homeless 
children and youths displaced by the hurricanes in the Gulf of 
Mexico in calendar year 2005 consistent with provisions 
outlined in section 106 of title IV, division B of this Act.
      The conference agreement includes a supplemental 
appropriation of $645,000,000 for temporary emergency impact 
aid for displaced students during the 2005-2006 school year. 
This funding is to be distributed to eligible schools that 
serve students who were displaced by the hurricanes in the Gulf 
of Mexico in calendar year 2005. Public, private, and charter 
schools are eligible for assistance consistent with provisions 
outlined in section 107 of title IV, division B of this Act.
      The conference agreement includes a supplemental 
appropriation of $200,000,000 to assist college students and 
higher education institutions with unanticipated expenses 
associated with the hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico in 
calendar year 2005. Within the amount provided, $95,000,000 is 
for the Mississippi Institutes of Higher Learning for 
additional student financial aid for students and families 
impacted by the Gulf hurricanes. The conferees intend for these 
funds to be made available for assistance to any eligible 
student attending a title IV eligible institution, including 
independent colleges and universities, private institutions, 
community colleges, junior colleges, and graduate institutions.
      Of the amount provided, $95,000,000 is for the Louisiana 
Board of Regents, which may be used to provide emergency 
assistance for student financial assistance, faculty salaries, 
or any purpose authorized under the Higher Education Act, to 
institutions of higher education that are located in an area 
affected by the Gulf hurricanes. The conferees intend for these 
funds to be used only for authorized purposes at the impacted 
institutions of higher education; allocated only to affected 
postsecondary educational institutions that were forced to 
suspend operations for 30 days or more; and distributed 
primarily to those institutions demonstrating that they were 
not able to re-open in existing facilities or fully re-open to 
pre-Gulf hurricane levels. The conferees intend for these funds 
to supplement and not supplant any portion of an institution's 
State support. In allocating these funds, the conferees 
strongly urge the Board to consult with the presidents or 
chancellors of the eligible colleges and universities and 
equitably allocate funding, within 45 days, based only on the 
need criteria agreed to by these officials.
      The Committees on Appropriations of the House and Senate 
request that the Department submit a report not later than 
March 1, 2006 on the obligation and allocation of these 
supplemental funds provided under the Higher Education Act.

                               CHAPTER 7

                         DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

                         Military Construction

      Military Construction Projects Repaired Using Operation 
and Maintenance Funds.--The conferees understand that all 
military construction projects requested by the President which 
have not been included in the agreement have been, or will be, 
repaired using operation and maintenance funds, rather than 
requiring replacement through military construction. Each 
military Service or Defense agency shall notify the Committees 
on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress, within seven days 
after the decision to execute, if a repair project is carried 
out with operation and maintenance funds in lieu of a project 
appropriated in this chapter.

              Military Construction, Navy and Marine Corps

      The agreement provides $291,219,000, instead of 
$314,629,000 as proposed in the reallocation request dated 
October 28, 2005. The funds are provided as follows:

activities. Multiple FAA facilities including control towers, 
buildings and navigation aids were damaged by the recent 
hurricanes and need to be repaired or replaced.

                     Federal Highway Administration


                        EMERGENCY RELIEF PROGRAM

      The conference agreement provides $2,750,000,000 to the 
Department of Transportation (DOT) for repairing and rebuilding 
highways, roads, bridges, and trails damaged by Hurricanes 
Katrina, Rita, Wilma, and prior disasters that are eligible for 
assistance under the Federal Highway Administration's Emergency 
Relief (ER) program.
      Within the funds provided, up to $629,000,000 is 
available to repair and reconstruct the I-10 bridge connecting 
New Orleans and Slidell, Louisiana. These funds may be used to 
rebuild the bridge to current design standards as allowable 
under Section 125 of title 23, United States Code.
      The funds provided are available until expended. The 
conference agreement waives the State matching share 
requirements for all of the ER projects related to these 
hurricanes and exempts projects for these hurricanes, Hurricane 
Dennis, and the 2004-2005 winter storms in the State of 
California from the ER program's $100,000,000 per State per 
event cap.
      The conference agreement allows DOT to spend any excess 
funds on other ER projects. The conferees permit DOT to 
promptly allocate up to $550,000,000 of the funds provided to 
address the existing backlog of ER projects to the extent the 
funds are needed to contend with damages caused by natural 
disasters or catastrophic failures from external causes that 
occurred prior to Hurricane Wilma, provided that such projects 
are ready to proceed to construction or are otherwise eligible 
for reimbursement.

reconstruct the Poland Street pier and warehouse in New 
Orleans, Louisiana, damaged as a result of Hurricane Katrina.

used in conjunction with the U.S. Navy to support the Ready 
Reserve Force Fleet.

              DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT


                       Public and Indian Housing


                     TENANT-BASED RENTAL ASSISTANCE

      The conference agreement includes $390,299,500 for 
tenant-based rental assistance. The conferees agree to limit 
the use of funds to those individuals and families who were 
receiving federal assistance or were homeless or in emergency 
shelters in the declared disaster area prior to Hurricanes 
Katrina and Rita.

                   Community Planning and Development


                       COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FUND

      The conference agreement includes $11,500,000,000 for 
necessary expenses related to disaster relief, long term 
recovery, restoration of infrastructure and mitigation in 
communities in any declared disaster area in Louisiana, 
Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Texas related to Hurricanes 
Katrina, Rita or Wilma. Not more than five percent of the funds 
granted may be used for administrative and overhead expenses.
      The conference agreement emphasizes the requirement that 
the States with the most impacted and distressed areas in 
connection with the Gulf of Mexico hurricanes receive priority 
consideration in the allocation of funds by HUD.
      Of the amounts made available under this heading up to 
$40,000,000 may be made available for LISC and the Enterprise 
Foundation for activities authorized under section 4 of the HUD 
Demonstration Act of 1993 and section 11 of the Housing 
Opportunity Program Extension Act of 1996.
      The conference agreement requires HUD, upon request by 
the state and a finding by the Secretary that the waiver would 
not be inconsistent with the overall purpose of the program, to 
issue certain waivers and to review the waivers after two 
years. The conference agreement also includes several 
notification and reporting requirements prior to and during the 
period in which any waiver is in effect.
      The conferees note that the Lower Manhattan Development 
Corporation (LMDC), which was established as the entity to plan 
and execute most of the redevelopment of the area impacted by 
the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack in New York City, has 
worked well to ensure an effective and efficient use of 
emergency funds made available for site redevelopment. The 
conferees encourage States to use the LMDC as a model for 
implementing the provision in this Act, which mandates that 
funds allocated under this heading be administered through 
entities designated by the Governor of each state.

                       Administrative Provisions

       Section 901 permits the Secretary during calendar year 
2006 to authorize a public housing agency in the areas most 
heavily impacted by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita to combine 
their Capital Fund, Operating Fund and Section 8 tenant-based 
monies to more effectively assist families receiving assistance 
prior to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

      The conference agreement includes a provision that 
requires the United States Agency for International Development 
to submit a report to the Committee on Appropriations detailing 
the use of funds provided to the Agency in this Act.

                               CHAPTER 4

                    DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

            OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY AND EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT

      The conferees agree to provide $47,283,000, to remain 
available until expended, for necessary expenditures related to 
planning for the consequences of a pandemic flu outbreak. Funds 
are available for transfer to other appropriations accounts 
subject to requirements for the reprogramming and transfer of 
funds in Section 503 of Public Law 109-90.
      The additional funds will allow for training of

procedures and protocols related to the potential outbreak of a 
highly pathogenic pandemic influenza, preparedness planning 
within the Department, protection of Department employees, 
modeling capabilities of likely patterns of pathogen 
dispersion, and equipment to isolate potentially exposed 
individuals. Recognizing pandemic influenza is not the only 
pathogenic threat that may enter the Nation, the Department 
should leverage its pandemic influenza activities to guard 
against other highly infectious and deadly diseases.

                               CHAPTER 5

                       DEPARMENT OF THE INTERIOR

with a high potential for contact between Asian and North 
American birds.

                               CHAPTER 6

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

                        Office of the Secretary

            PUBLIC HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICES EMERGENCY FUND

      The conference agreement provides $3,300,000,000 to 
prepare for and respond to an influenza pandemic, of which 
$3,204,000,000 is to remain available until expended. Section 
8116 of the Senate bill included $3,913,000,000 for this 
purpose to remain available until expended. In addition, the 
Senate included $8,158,589,000 for pandemic influenza in H.R. 
3010, the appropriations bill for the Department of Health and 
Human Services, of which $8,095,000,000 was to remain available 
until expended.
      The conference agreement includes bill language 
designating $350,000,000 for upgrading State and local response 
capacity, particularly the planning and exercising of pandemic 
response plans by State and local officials. Section 8116 of 
the Senate bill proposed $600,000,000 for this activity. The 
conferees are aware that any successful response to a pandemic 
influenza must include an effective response at the State and 
local levels. This will require pre-established partnerships 
and collaborative planning by public health officials, law 
enforcement officials, hospital administrators, and community 
leaders, who have considered a broad range of scenarios and 
participated in realistic response exercises. These planning 
and response exercises should enable public health and law 
enforcement officials to establish procedures and locations for 
quarantine, surge capacity, diagnostics, and communication. The 
conferees intend that most of these funds be put toward 
planning and exercises. The conferees intend that these funds 
be provided accompanied by established benchmarks and that a 
portion of the funding be made available based on meeting 
performance objectives at both the State and local levels.
      The conference agreement includes bill language 
designating $50,000,000 for laboratory capacity and research at 
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Section 
8116 of the Senate bill included $125,000,000 for this purpose. 
The conferees intend that a portion of these funds go to 
address a critical lack of influenza laboratory capacity, which 
has resulted in delays in processing influenza virus samples 
and the sharing of DNA sequence information with outside 
laboratories in a timely manner. The conferees also recognize 
that the proper laboratory and research assets are vital to 
definitively characterize virus strains and determine best 
practices among protective public health measures. Finally, the 
conferees encourage the development of an evidence base for the 
effectiveness of policies and technologies to reduce 
respiratory disease transmission, modeling means of social 
distancing, and accelerating the development of rapid field 
diagnostic tests suitable for both domestic and international 
use, particularly use in developing nations.
      The conference agreement includes bill language 
designating $246,000,000 for international activities, disease 
surveillance, vaccine registries, research, and clinical 
trials. $150,000,000 of this amount is designated in bill 
language to CDC and is available until expended to carry out 
global and domestic disease surveillance, laboratory 
diagnostics, rapid response and quarantine. The conferees 
recognize that increased international surveillance to track 
influenza strains, implementation of surveillance and 
quarantine measures at U.S. points-of-entry, and enhanced 
domestic surveillance are key elements to the pandemic response 
plan. An integrated global and domestic surveillance and 
control system will serve to slow introduction of a pandemic 
influenza strain into the general population, thereby 
increasing the amount of time available for preparing and 
deploying appropriate countermeasures.
      The balance of the funds provided, $2,750,000,000 are 
available to support, at the Secretary's discretion, other core 
preparedness activities, such as expanding the domestic 
production capacity of influenza vaccine, developing and 
stockpiling pandemic vaccine, and stockpiling antivirals and 
other medical supplies necessary to protect and preserve lives 
in the event of an outbreak of pandemic influenza.
      The conference agreement does not contain specific 
earmarks of $3,080,000,000 for the stockpiling of antivirals 
and medical supplies, $33,000,000 for global surveillance, and 
$75,000,000 for risk communication as was included in section 
8116 of the Senate bill.
      The conferees encourage CDC to partner with industry to 
ensure it has the proper diagnostic ``surge capacity'' in place 
for both surveillance and pandemic response. The conferees also 
request that the Secretary be prepared to report on a plan for 
using diagnostics in early-stage clinical response to an 
emerging pandemic during the hearings on the fiscal year 2007 
budget.
      The conferees believe that HHS should give priority to 
research and development activities that could realistically be 
translated into vaccine production or pandemic detection, 
diagnosis, or treatment regimes in the near to medium term. The 
conferees encourage HHS to allocate funding to such areas as 
vaccine development, testing, and production, including cell 
culture technologies and cell line development; antivirals, 
including dosing, timing, and efficacy screening; alternative 
vaccine technologies, including synthetic vaccines and vaccines 
composed of virus-like particles; antiviral delivery 
mechanisms; improved diagnostics and surveillance tools for 
influenza; enhanced tools and methods for the molecular 
analysis of viruses, virus subtypes, and host immunological 
response; antigen-sparing, heterosubtypic immunity protective 
measures; and research into modes of influenza transmission. 
The Secretary is strongly encouraged to use the simplified 
acquisition authorities provided under sections 319F-1 and 
319F-2 of the Public Health Service Act in awarding contracts, 
grants, and cooperative agreements.
      The conferees support the elaboration of novel adjuvant, 
antigen-sparing and multivalent technologies that can bolster 
the effectiveness and scope of vaccines based on adaptive or 
innate immunological response.
      The conferees are aware of the key role migratory bird 
tracking has played in predicting the spread of avian 
influenza. The conferees encourage CDC to ensure that this 
important activity is part of its surveillance activities.
      The conferees understand that smoking substantially 
increases both the incidence and severity of influenza because 
it compromises the upper respiratory system. One study found 
that smoking more than doubles the risk of developing clinical 
influenza. The conferees encourage CDC to provide information 
about the link between smoking and an increased risk for 
influenza infection and severity of illness through existing 
quitlines and to collaborate with other countries to assess the 
role of smoking in flu epidemics.
      The conferees encourage HHS to procure for the Strategic 
National Stockpile essential supplies that may be needed in the 
event of a pandemic including syringes, ventilators, 
respirators, diagnostic equipment, surgical masks, and gloves.
      To prevent co-infection, the conferees urge the Secretary 
to promote the widespread vaccination against seasonal 
influenza.
      The conferees encourage the Centers for Medicare and 
Medicaid Services to establish standards for the measurement of 
use by beneficiaries under the Medicare and Medicaid programs 
of adult immunizations for influenza and to conduct a study to 
determine the feasibility and advisability of including adult 
immunization for influenza as a performance measure under 
quality initiatives conducted by the Secretary under the 
Medicare and Medicaid programs. The study should also consider 
as a requirement of accreditation of a provider of services 
compliance with recommended adult immunizations.
      The conferees direct the Secretary to provide on a semi-
annual basis to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees 
a report identifying the disbursements of funds received under 
this heading and a listing of the governments, companies and 
organizations that received funding. The report should include 
the amount and purpose of each grant or other form of 
assistance. Finally, the report should include the cumulative 
obligations by activity of the funds made available under this 
heading for pandemic preparedness, as well as any remaining 
unobligated balances.

                               CHAPTER 7


                     DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS


                     Veterans Health Administration


                            MEDICAL SERVICES

       The agreement provides $27,000,000 for Medical Services 
for enhanced human health surveillance related to avian and 
pandemic influenza as proposed in the request dated November 1, 
2005.

                               CHAPTER 8


                          DEPARTMENT OF STATE


                   Administration of Foreign Affairs


                    DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR PROGRAMS

      The conference agreement includes $16,000,000 for 
diplomatic outreach, health support of United States Government 
employees, Peace Corps volunteers, and families, and continuity 
of operations at United States missions overseas due to the 
impact of avian and pandemic influenza. The conference 
agreement includes language directing that $1,100,000 be 
transferred to the Peace Corps for costs associated with Peace 
Corps volunteers.

           EMERGENCIES IN THE DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR SERVICE

      The conference agreement includes $15,000,000 for costs 
of emergency evacuation of United States Government personnel 
and dependents from United States missions overseas due to the 
impact of avian and pandemic influenza. The conferees request 
to be consulted prior to the use of any funds relating to 
evacuation of Peace Corps volunteers.
      The conference agreement includes language allowing the 
Secretary of State to transfer additional funding to this 
account should evacuation requirements exceed the available 
resources. The exercise of the transfer authority is subject to 
the Secretary's determination that circumstances related to the 
avian influenza require additional funding from this account, 
and notification to the Committees on Appropriations five days 
in advance of any transfer using this authority. The authority 
to transfer funds for this purpose is not subject to the 
percentage limitations contained in section 402 of Public Law 
109-108 that are normally applicable to transfers between 
accounts. The conferees note that, in addition to fiscal year 
2006 appropriations, unobligated balances totaling $17,000,000 
are currently available in this account.
