      Total, new budget                 32,077,970,000    32,793,323,000
       (obligational authority).....
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Committee recommends total appropriations of 
$32,793,323,000 for the Department of Homeland Security for 
fiscal year 2007, $715,353,000 more than the budget request. Of 
this amount, $31,730,000,000 is for discretionary programs.
    The President's fiscal year 2007 budget for the Department 
of Homeland Security is built upon a proposal to increase fees 
to generate an additional $1,230,000,000 in collections to 
offset Federal funding required for aviation security. This 
proposal to increase the aviation security fees charged to air 
travelers allows the President to claim a 6-percent increase in 
homeland security spending over fiscal year 2006. Absent the 
fee proposal, this increase falls to 1 percent. This bill does 
not include the President's fee increase proposal. Within the 
limitations on spending for this bill, the Committee recommends 
an allocation of resources for fiscal year 2007 which continues 
to focus on priorities established for the current year.
    Securing the Nation's Borders.--The Department of Homeland 
Security [DHS] has taken the initial steps to increase its 
operational control of our Nation's borders, though much work 
remains. To continue this effort, the Committee recommends 
total appropriations of $14,267,850,000 for the defense of our 
Nation's borders, and enforcement of immigration and customs 
laws.
    For Customs and Border Protection, the Committee provides a 
total of $6,639,223,000, providing for an additional 1,000 
Border Patrol agents; when combined with the fiscal year 2006 
emergency supplemental appropriations act (Public Law 109-234), 
2,000 new Border Patrol agents will be on board by the end of 
fiscal year 2007. This will bring the total strength of the 
Border Patrol to 14,319 agents for fiscal year 2007, as 
compared to 12,319 agents for fiscal year 2006. Included in 
this recommendation is $151,856,000 to sustain the fiscal year 
2006 program increases.
    For Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Committee 
provides a total of $3,861,638,000, including an additional 
1,000 detention beds; when combined with the fiscal year 2006 
emergency supplemental appropriations act (Public Law 109-234), 
5,000 new detention beds will be added by the end of fiscal 
year 2007. This will bring the total number of detention beds 
to 25,300 for fiscal year 2007, as compared to 24,300 beds for 
fiscal year 2006. Included in this recommendation is 
$403,772,000 to sustain the fiscal year 2006 program increases 
and those programs advance funded in Public Law 109-234.
    The Committee recommends a total of $8,189,106,000 for the 
United States Coast Guard to protect the Nation's 95,000 miles 
of shoreline border and inspect ports both domestic and 
foreign. Included in this amount is $3,766,989,000 for maritime 
border security, and $993,631,000 for the Integrated Deepwater 
Systems program to recapitalize the fleet.
    Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction.--The risk that 
terrorists will acquire a weapon of mass destruction--chemical, 
biological, radiological, or nuclear--is a serious threat to 
our Nation. To combat this threat, the Committee recommends a 
total appropriation of $818,455,000 for Science and Technology 
with the following recommendations: $327,200,000 for biological 
countermeasures and $75,000,000 for chemical countermeasures. 
The Committee recommends $442,492,000 for the Domestic Nuclear 
Detection Office to expand nuclear research and radiological 
detection. Advance funding for Project BioShield continues to 
be available.
    Addressing Threats.--Furthermore, it is imperative that not 
only the Federal Government but also first responders be 
prepared to prevent, mitigate, and recover from terrorist 
attacks. Since fiscal year 2002, over $17,000,000,000 has been 
appropriated to the Department and its precursor agencies for 
first responder grants, further, $2,800,000,000 additional are 
provided in this bill. Of the funds previously available to 
State and local governments over $4,800,000,000 remains unspent 
by grant recipients.
    This bill recommends a total of $3,253,500,000 for the 
Office for Domestic Preparedness, including: $500,000,000 for 
the State and local basic grant program; $350,000,000 for law 
enforcement terrorism prevention grants; $745,000,000 for high-
threat, high-density, urban area grants; and $210,000,000 for 
port security grants. An estimated 80 percent of the State and 
local grants are provided as discretionary grants, to be 
allocated by the Secretary of Homeland Security based on risk, 
including threat, vulnerability, and consequence. In addition, 
this bill recommends a total of $655,000,000 for the 
firefighter assistance grant program, of which $115,000,000 is 
for Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Act 
grants; and $205,000,000 for emergency management performance 
grants.
    Ensuring Timely, Accurate, and Actionable Intelligence.--
The Homeland Security Act (Public Law 107-296) provides the 
Department of Homeland Security with the responsibility to fuse 
law enforcement and intelligence information relating to 
terrorist threats to the homeland. Further, the DHS Chief 
Intelligence Officer is charged with ensuring that information 
is gathered from all relevant DHS field operations and is fused 
with information from other members of the Intelligence 
Community to produce active, timely, and actionable 
intelligence. With a Chief Intelligence Officer and a strategic 
plan finally in place, DHS has begun to implement this charge. 
The Committee recommends $298,663,000 for Analysis and 
Operations, including Intelligence activities, $45,723,000 
above the fiscal year 2006 level.
    The Department is responsible for partnering with industry 
and the Intelligence Community to protect the country's 
infrastructure. The Committee provides a total appropriation of 
$525,056,000 for Infrastructure Protection and Information 
Security with the following recommendations: $82,350,000 for 
cyber security infrastructure monitoring and coordination; and 
$67,815,000 for critical infrastructure identification and 
assessments.
    Core Responsibilities and Traditional Missions.--This bill 
provides resources for other key missions of the Department 
including: $6,136,639,000 for the Transportation Security 
Administration, excluding offsetting fee collections; 
$975,209,000 for Departmental Operations and the Office of 
Inspector General; $2,664,381,000 for the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency; $399,494,000 for U.S. Visitor and Immigrant 
Status Indicator Technology; $1,225,958,000 for the United 
States Secret Service; and $1,938,990,000 for Citizenship and 
Immigration Services, including fee collections.
    Departmental Management.--Despite the Committee's attempt 
to hold the Department responsible for its financial 
management, it continues to fail to keep its fiscal house in 
order, or keep the Committee informed of its fiscal status. The 
Committee has stepped in to provide financial bailouts, while 
the Government Accountability Office has repeatedly concluded 
the Department lacks internal controls necessary for the 
reduction of wasteful spending.
    As a result of management deficiencies, the Department 
continues to struggle to clearly articulate its policies and 
funding priorities to not only Congress, but also to the 
American taxpayer. This has resulted in the Department's 
severely limited ability to demonstrate accomplishments from 
the significant investments made in the Department. 
Complicating this further is the Department's inability to 
provide the necessary supplementary information to the 
Committee that result from hearings and briefings. This 
Committee heard testimony from the Secretary on February 28, 
2007, in relation to the fiscal year 2007 budget request, and 
remains without any of the information requested for the record 
4 months later. Without this ability, the Department has 
developed a budget which cannot be justified, depriving 
Congress of the means to make effective funding decisions for 
programs vital for the security of this Nation.

    Immediate Office of the Deputy Secretary.--The Committee 
provides funding at the fiscal year 2006 level for the 
Immediate Office of the Deputy Secretary.
    Chief of Staff.--The Committee provides funding at the 
fiscal year 2006 level for the Office of the Chief of Staff.
    Executive Secretary.--The Committee provides funding at the 
fiscal year 2006 level for the Office of the Executive 
Secretary.
    Office of Policy.--The Committee provides $31,093,000 for 
the Office of Policy, an increase of $6,627,000 from the fiscal 
year 2006 level, and equal to the level proposed in the budget. 
The recommendation funds the requested program increases for 
the Secure Border Initiative; weapons of mass destruction; the 
preparedness and disaster response initiative; and the 
expansion of the Office of Policy. The Committee supports the 
Department's efforts to develop a meaningful policy development 
and coordination office. This office should be flexible in 
scope to adjust to the ever changing priorities and threats 
relative to the security of the Nation. The Office of Policy 
was established to integrate policies across the Department and 
is capable of handling policies for screening.
    Office of Public Affairs.--The Committee provides 
$6,289,000 for the Office of Public Affairs, a decrease of 
$1,940,000 from the fiscal year 2006 level, and a decrease of 
$519,000 from the level proposed in the budget. The Committee 
notes there are many vacant positions in the office in fiscal 
year 2006 and does not expect these positions will be filled in 
fiscal year 2007. Funding for this office has been reduced 
accordingly.
    Office of Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs.--The 
Committee provides $5,744,000 for the Office of Legislative and 
Intergovernmental Affairs, a decrease of $518,000 from the 
fiscal year 2006 level, and a decrease of $735,000 from the 
level proposed in the budget. The Committee notes there are 
many vacant positions in the office in fiscal year 2006 and 
does not expect these positions will be filled in fiscal year 
2007. Funding for this office has been reduced accordingly.
    Office of General Counsel.--The Committee provides 
$12,759,000 for the Office of General Counsel, an increase of 
$1,605,000 from the fiscal year 2006 level for pay and 
inflationary adjustments and half of the program increase for 
the General Counsel Staffing Initiative proposed in the budget.
    Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.--The Committee 
provides $12,870,000 for the Office of Civil Rights and 
Liberties, the same as the fiscal year 2006 level. The 
Committee notes there are many vacant positions in the office 
in fiscal year 2006 and does not expect these positions will be 
filled in fiscal year 2007. Funding for this office has been 
reduced accordingly.
    Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman.--The 
Committee provides $4,771,000, an increase of $1,156,000 from 
the fiscal year 2006 level for pay and inflationary adjustments 
for the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman.
    Office of the Privacy Officer.--The Committee provides 
$4,435,000, an increase of $98,000 from the fiscal year 2006 
level, as proposed in the budget, for pay and inflationary 
adjustments for the Office of the Privacy Officer.
    Office of Counternarcotics Enforcement.--The Committee 
provides $2,360,000, an increase of $519,000 from the fiscal 
year 2006 level for pay and inflationary adjustments and 
program expansion. The Committee notes the Office of 
Counternarcotics Enforcement was previously funded under the 
Office of the Chief of Staff. The recommendation provides for 
the establishment of an independent office, as proposed in the 
budget.
    Department of Homeland Security Relocation.--The Committee 
recommendation does not include funding for the relocation of 
the Coast Guard to the site of the former St. Elizabeths 
Hospital. The Committee encourages the Department to develop a 
comprehensive long-term plan for the future location of all 
Department offices and components at headquarters, rather than 
the piecemeal approach currently used by the Department.
    Base Realignment and Closure.--The Senate report 
accompanying the Department Homeland Security Appropriations 
Act, 2006 (Public Law 109-90) required the Department to submit 
a report describing the impact on Department of Homeland 
Security facilities and activities of the closure or 
realignment of any Department of Defense base as a result of 
the base realignment and closure law. Despite a due date of 
February 10, 2006, this report has not been submitted. The 
Committee still expects to receive this report. In addition, 
the report should be updated to include cost estimates from 
fiscal year 2007 to fiscal year 2011 for any construction, 
consolidation, relocation or other expenses to affected 
Department of Homeland Security facilities, assets, or 
activities due to Defense Department base closures or 
realignments.
    Contract Staffing Report.--The Committee received the 
Department's report dated January 26, 2006, on the number of 
contract staff occupying positions budgeted to be filled by 
Federal employees. The report indicates a decrease of this type 
of contract staff from fiscal year 2004 to fiscal year 2005. 
The vast majority of contract staff still filling government 
positions (73 of 109) is in the Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP), Office of Field Operations. The Committee is concerned 
by the CBP section of the report which states, ``There are no 
plans in place to reduce contractor staff.'' The Committee 
expects the Department to make progress in replacing these 
contract staff personnel with Federal employees. As such, the 
Department is directed to submit an updated report no later 
than February 8, 2007, containing data for fiscal year 2006 and 
projected for fiscal year 2007, and plans to reduce these types 
of contract employees in the future.
    Office of the Federal Coordinator for Gulf Coast 
Rebuilding.--The Office of the Federal Coordinator for Gulf 
Coast Rebuilding was established contrary to section 809 of 
Public Law 109-115 and section 503(a) of Public Law 109-90. The 
Department is directed to submit to the Committee by September 
1, 2006, a report detailing the specific authorities used to 
establish this office and the agency or component that is 
providing the funding. In addition, the Committee includes bill 
language prohibiting funding for the office until the 
Department submits a reprogramming request for fiscal year 2006 
funding and a budget request and expenditure plan for fiscal 
year 2007 for this office.
    Policy on Tunnels Along the Border.--The Committee is 
concerned with the Department's lack of a clear policy 
regarding which agency is responsible for securing, closing, 
and, ultimately, filling tunnels which are discovered crossing 
under our land borders. It appears decisions regarding the 
handling of tunnels are made on an ad hoc basis depending on 
which agency discovers the tunnel and has the resources to fill 
it. With nearly four dozen known tunnels along our borders, it 
is imperative a policy regarding tunnels be developed. The 
Committee directs the Secretary to develop a policy regarding 
tunnels, including identifying the responsible agency and the 
source of funds to be used to close and fill tunnels, and 
report to the Committee on this policy not later than February 
8, 2007.
    Regional or Field Office Consolidation/Collocation.--
Section 706 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (Public Law 
107-296) requires the Department to submit a plan to Congress 
of any consolidation or collocation of regional or field 
offices. A plan has not been submitted for review. The 
Committee expects to receive regular updates from the 
Department on the status of any such plan and expects to be 
notified at least 10 days prior to any change in location of 
offices.
    Homeland Security Designation.--The Committee notes the 
Department's change in policy regarding the homeland security 
designation of the Coast Guard's drug interdiction mission. In 
previous budget submissions, the drug interdiction mission was 
considered to be a homeland security function. In the fiscal 
year 2007 budget submission, the administration classifies the 
mission as non-homeland security. The Committee challenges the 
logic behind this change in policy given recent intelligence 
which claims ties exist between terrorist financing and the 
illegal drug trade. The Committee does not concur with this 
change in policy and encourages the administration to re-visit 
this decision in the fiscal year 2008 budget request.
    Slow Pace for Grant Awards.--The Committee continues to be 
disappointed with the Department's pace for awarding homeland 
security grants, including grants for port security, intercity 
bus security, pre-disaster mitigation, buffer zone protection, 
firefighter (SAFER Act) hiring, and rail/mass transit security. 
The Committee notes that none of the funds made available to 
the Department on October 18, 2005, for these programs have 
been awarded to date and in some cases not even made available 
for application. The Committee further notes the report the 
Committee required in House Report 109-241 accompanying the 
Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2006 (Public Law 109-90) 
establishing an expedited schedule for fiscal year 2006 grants 
has not been submitted to the Committee to date, despite a due 
date of February 10, 2006. The Committee directs the Department 
to prepare a report by November 1, 2006, that lays out an 
expeditious and responsible schedule for making grants for the 
funds made available by this act. If any funds are to be 
awarded after March 30, 2007, the Department should provide a 
detailed explanation for the delay.
    Senior Executive Service [SES] Career Development 
Program.--The Committee believes it is essential for the 
Department to develop an effective career SES program. The 
Committee is fully supportive of the establishment of an SES 
Candidate Development Program and Executive Review Board and 
encourages the Department to use this program to enhance inter-
departmental integration.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommendation does not provide $3,960,000

    Immediate Office of the Under Secretary for Management.--
The Committee provides funding at the fiscal year 2006 level 
for the Immediate Office of the Under Secretary.
    Department of Homeland Security [DHS] Headquarters 
Project.--The Committee provides $8,206,000, as proposed in the 
budget, to enable the Department to continue to consolidate and 
integrate its headquarters operations and specific program 
components at the Nebraska Avenue Complex [NAC] in Washington, 
DC. This amount includes $2,000,000 for security enhancements; 
$1,000,000 for tenant improvements; and $5,206,000 for campus-
wide design and construction costs.
    The Committee expects to be updated on a regular basis on 
the Department's physical consolidation and on the planned 
expenditure of these funds and those previously made available 
for the NAC, as well as its plans for a permanent headquarters.
    Business Transformation Office.--The Committee does not 
provide funding for the Business Transformation Office [BTO]. 
While the Committee values the integration that BTO sought to 
provide, the Committee finds such integration can be 
coordinated directly out of the Immediate Office of the Under 
Secretary for Management, eliminating the need for an 
independent office.
    Office of the Chief Procurement Officer.--The Committee 
fully funds the budget request for the Office of the Chief 
Procurement Officer. The Committee directs the Chief 
Procurement Officer to use the increase for hiring and training 
of qualified procurement officers.
    The Senate report and the Statement of Managers 
accompanying the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations 
Act, 2006 (Public Law 109-90) requires the Department to submit 
to the Committee a report on the adequacy of the number and 
training of procurement officers in the Department. Despite a 
due date of February 10, 2006, this report has not yet been 
received. The Department is directed to expedite the delivery 
of this report and include in the submission, the data for 
fiscal years 2004, 2005, 2006, and proposed for fiscal year 
2007.
    Human Resources System (MAX HR).--The Committee 
recommendation includes $35,000,000, an increase of $5,300,000 
from the fiscal year 2006 level, to support the design, 
detailed program development, and deployment of the new DHS 
human resources management system. The Committee recommendation 
does not provide the funding level proposed in the budget due 
to ongoing litigation.
    The Secretary of Homeland Security is directed to submit an 
updated expenditure plan to the Committees on Appropriations of 
the Senate and House of Representatives within 90 days after 
the date of enactment of the act, based on the final fiscal 
year appropriation. The report shall list all contract 
obligations, by contractor and year, along with the purpose of 
the contract.
    Office of Security.--The Committee provides $54,640,000 for 
the Office of Security, an increase of $3,875,000 from the 
fiscal year 2006 level.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $26,018,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the Office of the Chief Financial Officer [CFO]. 
This includes an increase of $6,807,000 from the fiscal year 
2006 level, as proposed in the budget, for hiring additional 
staff and meeting financial audit requirements.
    Resource Management Transformation Office.--The 
recommendation includes the transfer of the Resource Management 
Transformation Office, formerly known as ``Emerge2'', from the 
Office of the Chief Information Officer to the Office of the 
Chief Financial Officer. The Committee notes the $30,000,000 in 
unobligated balances for this program. Accordingly, the 
recommendation does not include additional funding for this 
program.
    Annual Appropriations Justifications.--The Committee 
directs the CFO to ensure the annual appropriations 
justifications prepared for each component within the 
Department in support of the President's budget as submitted 
under section 1105(a) of title 31, United States Code, include 
explicit information by appropriations account, program, 
project, and activity, on all reimbursable agreements and all

language requiring the Department to continue submitting to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations a monthly budget 
execution report showing the status of obligations and costs 
for all components of the Department and on-board staffing 
levels. The report should include the total obligational 
authority appropriated (new budget authority plus unobligated 
carryover), undistributed obligational authority, amount 
allotted, current year obligations, unobligated authority (the 
difference between total obligational authority and current 
year obligations), beginning unexpended obligations, year-to-
date costs, and ending unexpended obligations. This budget 
execution information is to be provided at the level of detail 
shown in the tables displayed at the end of this report for 
each departmental component and the Working Capital Fund. This 
report shall be submitted no later than 45 days after the close 
of each month.
    Unobligated Balances.--The Senate report and the Statement 
of Managers accompanying the Conference Report on the 
Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2006 
(Public Law 109-90) required the Department to submit to the 
Committee on Appropriations a report listing all funds 
transferred to the Department when it was formed that remain 
unobligated, the purpose for which the funds were appropriated, 
the reason the funds remain unobligated, and the Department's 
plan for use of these funds. Despite a due date of February 10, 
2006, this report has not yet been received. The Department is 
directed to expedite the delivery of this report.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $306,765,000, of which $79,521,000 
is for salaries and expenses, and $227,244,000 is to be 
available until expended for Department-wide technology 
investments overseen by the Office of the Chief Information 
Officer [CIO]. This includes an increase of $1,986,000 for pay 
and other inflationary adjustments, and a decrease of 
$17,820,000 to reflect the transfer of Emerge2 to the Chief 
Financial Officer account.
    The Committee includes bill language directing the CIO to 
submit to the Committee within 60 days after enactment of this 
act, a detailed program plan describing the scope; total 
estimated cost; cost by year; and the schedule for completion, 
including significant milestones, for each individual project 
funded for fiscal year 2007 for information technology 
services, security activities, and wireless programs.
    Salaries and Expenses.--Included in the amount recommended 
by the Committee is $79,521,000, an increase of $4,522,000 from 
the fiscal year 2006 level, as proposed in the budget, to 
support the ongoing maintenance and operations of 
infrastructure capabilities to ensure continuous communication 
and continuity of operations.
    Information Technology Services.--Included in the amount

    Security Activities.--Included in the amount recommended by 
the Committee is $47,139,000 for continued security activities. 
Of this amount $25,252,000, an increase of $16,342,000 from the 
2006 level, is for the Infrastructure Transformation Program to 
continue development of an enterprise-wide user authentication 
capability into mission and enterprise applications through the 
email services project, and continue building out an enterprise 
network and security operations center environment and 
completion of a test lab/modeling environment in the network 
services project. Further, an increase of $12,000,000 is 
provided for the continued development of the National Center 
for Critical Information Processing and Storage [NCCIPS] to 
expedite the transition of multiple Department data centers to 
NCCIPS; to establish a NCCIPS common operating environment to 
be shared by the Department and other federal agencies that 
manage critical information needed to protect our homeland; to 
support an Active-Active environment; for the operations and 
maintenance of the shared NCCIPS environment; and, to continue 
the build-out of useable floor space for hosting applications 
within NCCIPS. The Committee also encourages the Department to 
support the scaling of existing NCCIPS shared facilities and to 
identify and secure the NCCIPS secondary site that will serve 
as the contingency site for the Department and other NCCIPS 
users.
    Data Center Consolidation.--The Committee is aware the 
Department plans to consolidate DHS component agency data 
centers into two primary data centers. The Committee directs 
the Department to ensure that the development of the second 
data center is done following all of the relevant procurement 
regulations and laws to ensure a free and open procurement 
process.
    Consistent with section 888 of Public Law 107-296, the 
conferees instruct the Department to implement the 
consolidation plan in a manner that shall not result in a 
reduction to the Coast Guard's Operations System Center mission 
or its government-employed or contract staff levels.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 and budget

directs the Chief Intelligence Officer to report no later than 
90 days after the date of enactment of this act on efforts to 
address concerns reported in the Office of Inspector General 
Report OIG-05-34.
    Operations Centers.--The Committee understands the 
operating procedures for the Homeland Security Operations 
Center [HSOC] have not changed since Hurricane Katrina. The 
Committee directs the Government Accountability Office to 
analyze the role of the HSOC and the numerous DHS component 
operations centers and to make recommendations regarding the

               SECURITY, ENFORCEMENT, AND INVESTIGATIONS

    United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................    $336,600,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     399,494,000
House allowance.........................................     362,494,000
Committee recommendation................................     399,494,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    The United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator 
Technology [US VISIT] account funds the development of a system 
to collect, maintain, and share appropriate information through 
an integrated information technology system which determines 
the eligibility of aliens for admissions and benefits.
    The US VISIT program office has lead responsibility within 
the Department of Homeland Security to work with the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation [FBI] on the further integration of the 
Automated Biometric Identification System [IDENT] and the FBI's 
Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System [IAFIS].

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $399,494,000, to be available 
until expended, for the United States Visitor and Immigrant 
Status Indicator Technology [US VISIT].
    Biometric Integration.--Included in the amount recommended 
by the Committee is $60,080,000, as proposed in the budget, to 
implement 10-print enrollment capability, and to continue the 
development of interoperability between IDENT and IAFIS. The 
Committee is concerned that the timetable for achieving 
progress on these two priorities has been unnecessarily delayed 
by the Department's failure to submit the required fiscal year 
2006 expenditure plan. The Committee directs the US VISIT 
program office to provide quarterly briefings on progress being 
made on the transition to 10-print and the status of the IDENT/
IAFIS initial operating capability. The briefings should be 
provided no later than December 1, 2006, and continue on a 
quarterly basis.
    Exit Tracking.--The Committee is concerned the Department 
has not fully deployed biometric exit tracking capabilities at 
airports and has not provided sufficient information to the 
Committee on when it will become fully operational. Of greatest 
concern is the fact that US VISIT cannot move forward due to 
the indecision of the Department's top leadership. This is 
perplexing given the potential of this system to enhance the 
Nation's security. While DHS collects biometric identifiers on 
foreign nationals who arrive in the United States, the 
biometric exit portion of US VISIT has not moved out of the 
pilot phase and is operating at only 11 air and sea ports of 
entry. The result is the continued limited ability to identify 
visa overstays and foreign nationals who should be apprehended 
by law enforcement. The Secretary is directed to submit a 
strategic plan for US VISIT to the Committee 30 days after the 
date of enactment of this act. The strategic plan should 
include a complete schedule for the full implementation of the 
exit portion of the program, and a plan of how US VISIT fits 
into the Department's larger border and immigration 
initiatives.
    People Access Security Service [PASS] Card.--The Committee 
directs the Secretary of Homeland Security, jointly with the 
Secretary of State, to submit no later than 30 days after the 
date of enactment of this act a report on the current status of 
the selection of the architecture for the Western Hemisphere 
Travel Initiative document known as PASS card and whether the 
agencies can meet the legislative implementation deadlines. In 
addition, the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] should 
identify for the Committee the budget for implementation of 
this program, including PASS card readers at the ports of entry 
[POEs]; necessary infrastructure improvements at the POEs; and 
training for DHS and other Federal government staff. Language 
is included in the bill regarding deadlines and implementation 
requirements for the PASS card.
    Expenditure Plan.--The Committee includes bill language 
making $200,000,000 available for obligation upon submission of 
a comprehensive plan from the Secretary of Homeland Security 
for the US VISIT program.

    The Customs and Border Protection [CBP] Salaries and 
Expenses appropriation provides funds for border security, 
immigration, customs, agricultural inspections, regulating and 
facilitating international trade, collecting import duties, and 
enforcing U.S. trade laws. In addition to directly appropriated 
resources, fee collections are available for the operations of 
CBP from the following sources:
    Immigration Inspection User Fees.--CBP collects user fees 
to fund the costs of international inspections activities at 
airports and seaports, as authorized by the Immigration and 
Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1356).
    Enforcement Fines.--CBP collects fines from owners of 
transportation lines and persons for unauthorized landing of 
aliens, as authorized by the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 
U.S.C. 1356).
    Land Border Inspections Fees.--CBP collects fees for 
processing applications for the Dedicated Commuter Lanes 
program, the Automated Permit Ports program, the Canadian 
Border Boat Landing program, and both Canadian and Mexican Non-
Resident Alien Border Crossing Cards, as authorized by the 
Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1356).
    Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act [COBRA] 
Fees.--CBP collects fees for inspection services involving 
customs related functions. The COBRA user fee statutory 
authority (19 U.S.C. 58c) specifies the types of expenses to be 
reimbursed and the order for the reimbursement of these types 
of expenses.
    Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Inspection 
Fees.--CBP receives as a transfer a distribution of agriculture 
inspection fees collected by the United States Department of 
Agriculture. The user fees, as authorized by the Food, 
Agriculture, Conservation, and Trade Act of 1990 (21 U.S.C. 
136), are charged to offset costs for the services related to 
the importation, entry, or exportation of animals and animal 
products.
    Puerto Rico Trust Fund.--Customs duties, taxes, and fees 
collected in Puerto Rico by CBP are deposited in the Puerto 
Rico Trust Fund. After providing for the expenses of 
administering CBP activities in Puerto Rico, the remaining 
amounts are transferred to the Treasurer of Puerto Rico 
pursuant to 48 U.S.C. sections 740 and 795.
    Small Airport User Fee.--The User Fee Airports Program 
authorized under 19 U.S.C. 58b and administered under 19 U.S.C. 
58c(b)(9)(A)(i), authorizes inspection services to be provided 
to participating small airports on a fully reimbursable basis. 
The fees charged under this program are set forth in a 
Memorandum of Agreement between the small airport facility and 
the agency, and may be adjusted annually as costs and 
requirements change.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $5,285,874,000 for salaries and 
expenses of Customs and Border Protection [CBP] for fiscal year 
2007, including $3,026,000 from the Harbor Maintenance Trust 
Fund. Included in this amount is a decrease of $56,947,000 in 
termination of one-time costs, and $151,856,000 in 
annualizations for fiscal year 2006 program increases. The 
Committee does not include the transfer of $5,000,000 from CBP 
to the U.S. Coast Guard for the National Capital Region Air 
Defense. No funds were ever provided to CBP for this purpose. 
The Committee includes bill language making available up to 
$150,000 for space for preclearance operations; and $1,000,000 
for payments to informants. The Committee includes bill 
language placing a $35,000 annual limit on overtime paid to any 
employee.
    National Targeting Center.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $23,635,000, 114 positions, and 
84 full-time equivalents [FTEs], an increase of $6,800,000, 60 
positions, and 30 FTEs, as proposed in the budget, to expand 
the National Targeting Center to two sites in support of 
international passenger and cargo targeting operations and 
responsibility.
    Weapons of Mass Destruction Staffing.--Included in the 
amount recommended by the Committee is $94,317,000, 177 
positions, and 124 FTEs, for inspection and detection 
technology, an increase of $12,000,000, 106 positions, and 53 
FTEs, as proposed in the budget, to expand staffing of 
inspectors at seaports to staff radiation portal monitors.
    Immigration Advisory Program.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $6,800,000, 30 positions, and 
15 FTEs, as proposed in the budget, an increase of $4,800,000 
from the fiscal year 2006 level, to expand the Immigration 
Advisory Program.
    Fraudulent Document Analysis Unit.--The Committee does not 
provide $1,200,000, 12 positions, and 6 FTEs, as proposed in 
the budget, to expand the Fraudulent Document Analysis Unit.
    Internal Controls Audit.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is an increase of $1,000,000, as 
proposed in the budget, for CBP's share of the cost for 
compliance with internal control audits required by Public Law 
108-330.
    Procurement Staffing.--Included in the amount recommended 
by the Committee is $15,800,000, 183 positions, and 168 FTEs, 
an increase of $3,000,000, 30 positions, and 15 FTEs, as 
proposed in the budget, to expand procurement staffing.
    Arizona Border Control Initiative.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $9,500,000, as proposed in the 
budget, an increase of $8,500,000 from the fiscal year 2006 
level, to expand the Arizona Border Control Initiative.
    Increased Border Patrol Agents.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is an increase of $286,602,000; 
1,396 positions; and 698 FTEs, for 1,000 additional Border 
Patrol Agents, 396 operational and mission support positions, 
information technology, relocation costs, and training. When 
combined with the 1,000 additional Border Patrol Agents funded 
by the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, 
the Global War on Terror, and Hurricane Recovery, 2006 (Public 
Law 109-234), 2,000 Border Patrol Agents will be added by the 
end of fiscal year 2007. This will bring the total strength of 
the Border Patrol to 14,319 agents for fiscal year 2007, as 
compared to 12,319 agents for fiscal year 2006.
    Federal Law Enforcement Training Center Reimbursement.--The 
Committee does not provide the $4,700,000 proposed in the 
budget to reimburse the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center 
[FLETC]. These resources are more appropriately provided to 
FLETC.
    Border Technology.--The Committee does not provide the 
$131,559,000 proposed in the budget for border technology in 
this account. Funds for this purpose are included under a 
separate account.
    Air and Marine Staffing.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $172,676,000; 1,240 positions; 
and 1,230 FTEs, an increase of $7,800,000; 20 positions; and 10 
FTEs from the 2006 level to fully staff the Northern Border air 
wings in New York and Washington, and to staff the air wing in 
North Dakota.
    Resource Allocation Model.--A Government Accountability 
Office [GAO] report (GAO-05-663) states ``CBP does not 
systemically assess the number of staff required to accomplish 
its mission at ports and airports nationwide.'' The Committee 
directs CBP to submit by February 8, 2007, a resource 
allocation model for current and future year staffing 
requirements. The report should assess optimal staffing levels 
at all land, air, and sea ports of entry for fulfillment of all 
CBP missions. CBP should consult with appropriate non-Federal 
partners, such as airport operators and port authorities, 
regarding estimated future passenger growth and throughput as 
well as issues such as automatic secondary inspection 
requirements.
    Of chief concern is CBP's ability to effectively process 
the growing passenger workload at the Nation's airports. The 
Committee is aware of a number of airports experiencing 
significant increases in passenger volume and wait times, 
including Washington Dulles Airport, John F. Kennedy 
International Airport, Miami International Airport, and Denver 
International Airport. CBP is directed to include in its 
resource allocation model for airports the number of flights 
that took longer than 60-minutes to process. In addition, the 
Committee encourages CBP to expand the wait time information 
per airport on its website to include times of day, similar to 
the wait time information listed on the web site of the 
Transportation Security Administration.
    Further, the Committee directs CBP to submit a separate 
report on resources allocated to the Santa Teresa, New Mexico, 
port of entry, including an analysis of the impact of expanding 
the hours of commercial operations from 10 hours per day to 16 
hours per day.
    Vehicle Fleet Management.--The Committee directs an updated 
vehicle fleet management report be submitted by February 8, 
2007, which includes details on the numbers and types of new 
and replacement vehicles CBP procured in fiscal year 2006 and 
intends to procure in fiscal year 2007, as well as details on 
the gap, if any, between existing vehicles and actual 
requirements resulting from increased CBP hiring.
    Tucson Sector Checkpoints.--The Committee notes a January 
2006 DHS Inspector General report states: ``Permanent 
checkpoints permit safer, more efficient law enforcement. . . . 
It is not necessary to prohibit permanent checkpoints in order 
to encourage the use of alternative tactics and mobile interior 
operations.'' The Committee supports this conclusion and 
strongly encourages CBP to construct permanent checkpoints in 
the Tucson sector.
    Textile Transshipment Enforcement.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $4,750,000 for textile 
transshipment enforcement, as authorized by section 352 of the 
Trade Act of 2002. The Trade Act of 2002 authorizes 
appropriations for the hiring of 72 positions between CBP and 
Immigration and Customs Enforcement, including import 
specialists, auditors, and analytic staff, and funding has been 
provided for these positons.
    Advanced Training Center.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $10,165,000 to operate and 
equip the Advanced Training Center.
    Pursuant to Public Law 106-246, the training to be 
conducted at the Center shall be configured in a manner so as 
to not duplicate or displace any Federal law enforcement 
program of FLETC. Training currently being conducted at a FLETC 
facility shall not be moved to the Center.
    New Technology.--The Committee supports the acquisition and 
utilization of advanced mobile inspection systems for screening 
trucks, cargo containers, and passenger vehicles. The Committee 
is supportive of multiple technologies to provide this critical 
service. The Committee supports the acquisition and utilization 
of lightweight, ruggedized, thermal target detection devices.
    GAO (GAO-06-471) concluded the Federal Government has no 
specific program aimed at discovering undeclared hazardous 
materials entering the United States. The Committee encourages 
CBP to utilize the most up-to-date technology to enable 
inspectors to accurately determine whether hazardous materials 
are being transported safely and in accordance with relevant 
laws and regulations.
    Anti-Dumping Enforcement.--The Committee has ensured, 
within the amounts provided for this account, the availability 
of sufficient funds to enforce the anti-dumping authority 
contained in section 754 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 
1675c). The Committee directs CBP to continue to work with the 
Departments of Commerce and Treasury, and the Office of the 
United States Trade Representative (and all other relevant 
agencies) to increase collections and to provide an annual 
report within 30 days of each year's distributions under the 
law summarizing CBP's efforts to collect past due amounts and 
increase current collections, particularly with respect to 
cases involving unfairly-traded Asian imports. The Committee 
directs CBP to update that report, in particular, by breaking 
out the non-collected amounts for each of the fiscal years 
2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and each year thereafter, by order and 
claimant, along with a description of each of the specific 
reasons for the non-collection with respect to each order. CBP 
is also directed to provide the Committee on Appropriations 
with prior notice of (1) how CBP plans to clarify or provide 
guidelines for the preparation of Continued Dumping and Subsidy 
Offset Act [CDSOA] certification of claims; and (2) any 
modifications or revisions of regulations that may be proposed 
by CBP concerning CDSOA. CBP is also directed to report to the 
Committee on Appropriations no later than February 8, 2007, 
with specificity on what it has done to (1) formalize plans for 
managing and improving CDSOA program processes, staff, and 
technology; (2) develop and execute a human capital plan; and 
(3) develop a process for systematically verifying claims in 
accordance with the third and fourth recommendations made in 
GAO-05-979 ``International Trade: Issues and Effects of 
Implementing the Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act,'' 
dated September 2005.
    Agricultural Pests.--The Committee notes Hawaii's globally 
significant natural environment, as well as the State's 
important diversified agricultural industry, are uniquely 
vulnerable to the introduction of invasive weeds, animals, 
insects, and diseases. The Committee expects the Department to 
work with the United States Department of Agriculture and the 
Hawaii Department of Agriculture to share information and 
expertise to ensure their respective inspection and quarantine 
activities provide coordinated and collaborative biosecurity 
protection for the State.
    Included in the amount recommended by the Committee is 
continued funding at the fiscal year 2006 level for part-time 
and temporary positions in Honolulu, Hawaii.

recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 and budget

Budget estimate, 2007...................................   3,902,291,000
House allowance.........................................   3,850,257,000

to Public Law 109-148 and $327,000,000 in emergency supplemental 
appropriations pursuant to Public Law 109-234.

    The Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] Salaries and 
Expenses account provides funds for the enforcement of 
immigration and customs laws, intelligence, and detention and 
removals. In addition to directly appropriated resources, 
funding is derived from the following offsetting collections:
    Immigration Inspection User Fees.--ICE derives funds from 
user fees to support the costs of detention and removals in 
connection with international inspections activities at 
airports and seaports, as authorized by the Immigration and 
Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1356).
    Student Exchange Visitor Program Fees.--ICE collects fees 
from foreign students, exchange visitors, and schools and 
universities to certify and monitor participating schools, and 
to conduct compliance audits.
    Immigration Breached Bond/Detention Fund.--ICE derives 
funds from the recovery of breached cash and surety bonds in 
excess of $8,000,000, as authorized by the Immigration and 
Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1356); and from a portion of fees 
charged under section 245(i) of the Immigration and Nationality 
Act to support the cost of the detention of aliens.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $3,740,357,000, for salaries and 
expenses of Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] for 
fiscal year 2007. This includes increases from the fiscal year 
2006 level of $65,447,000 for pay and other inflationary 
adjustments, as proposed in the budget, and $209,172,000 in 
annualizations.
    The Committee includes bill language placing a $35,000 
limit on overtime paid to any employee; making up to $7,500,000 
available for special operations; making up to $1,000,000 
available for the payment of informants; making up to 
$11,216,000 available to reimburse other Federal agencies for 
the costs associated with the care, maintenance, and 
repatriation of smuggled illegal aliens; making not less than 
$102,000 available for promotion of public awareness of the 
child pornography tipline; making not less than $203,000 
available for Project Alert; making not less than $5,400,000 
available to facilitate agreements consistent with section 
287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act; limiting the use 
of funds for facilitating agreements consistent with section 
287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act to the same 
activities funded in fiscal year 2005; and making $15,770,000 
available for activities to enforce laws against forced child 
labor, of which $6,000,000 shall remain available until 
expended.
    Investigations, Compliance.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $36,781,000, 184 positions, and 
157 full-time equivalents [FTEs], an increase of $10,017,000, 
54 positions, and 27 FTEs, as proposed in the budget, to 
increase the resources devoted to compliance investigations 
stemming from visa-overstays.
    Investigations, Worksite Enforcement.--Included in the 
amount recommended by the Committee is $57,910,000, an increase 
of $19,681,000 from fiscal year 2006 level, to enhance 
resources devoted to worksite enforcement. The Committee is 
discouraged by the slow pace with which ICE has approached the 
worksite enforcement program. A significant expansion of this 
program is funded for the current fiscal year, with the 
expectation ICE report to the Committee on the planned use of 
those resources. No plan has been submitted. Given the critical 
importance of this program, the Secretary is directed to submit 
to the Committee the plan for the fiscal year 2006 worksite 
enforcement resources forthwith.
    Federal Law Enforcement Training Center Reimbursement.--The 
Committee does not provide the $4,444,000 proposed in the 
budget to reimburse the Federal Law Enforcement Training 
Center. These resources are more appropriately provided to 
FLETC.
    State and Local Law Enforcement Support, Section 287(g) 
Agreements.--Included in the amount recommended by the 
Committee is $5,400,000, an increase of $400,000 as proposed in 
the budget, for training to support implementation of the 
provisions of Section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality 
Act to delegate authority to enforce limited immigration 
functions to State and local law enforcement officers. ICE 
shall redirect up to $34,500,000 of the funds appropriated by 
Public Law 109-234 for support of 287(g) agreements to vehicle 
replacement.
    Law Enforcement Support Center.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $21,806,000, an increase of 
$3,926,000, as proposed in the budget, to assist in responding 
to increased requests for assistance from State and local law 
enforcement officers.
    Legal Proceedings.--Included in the amount recommended by 
the Committee is $187,353,000; 1,163 positions; and 1,034 FTEs, 
an increase of $38,500,000; 257 positions; and 128 FTEs, as 
proposed in the budget, to enable ICE to adequately provide 
legal representation on behalf of the Department of Homeland 
Security before immigration proceedings in conjunction with the 
increases in detention and investigative resources.
    Detention and Removals, Custody Management.--Included in 
the amount recommended by the Committee is an increase of 
$165,100,000, including $154,600,000 to sustain funding for the 
4,000 new detention beds and 560 additional detention personnel 
advance funded for fiscal year 2007 by the recently enacted 
Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the 
Global War on Terror, and Hurricane Recovery, 2006 (Public Law 
109-234). With the fiscal year 2006 supplemental 
appropriations, an estimated 24,300 beds will be funded, from 
all funding sources, for fiscal year 2006. The remaining 
$10,500,000 of the total increase recommended by the Committee 
funds an additional 300 detention beds for fiscal year 2007. 
When combined with the 700 new detention beds funded for fiscal 
year 2007 in fugitive operations, the Committee recommendation 
funds a total of 1,000 additional detention beds for fiscal 
year 2007, bringing the total strength of the detention program 
to 25,300 beds for fiscal year 2007, as compared to 24,300 beds 
for fiscal year 2006.
    Detention and Removals, Transportation and Removal.--
Included in the amount recommended by the Committee is an 
increase of $94,100,000 to sustain funding for the 
transportation costs associated with 4,000 detention beds 
advance funded by Public Law 109-234 for fiscal year 2007, and 
the 1,000 new detention beds funded in this bill.
    Detention and Removals, Fugitive Operations.--Included in 
the amount recommended by the Committee is an increase of 
$40,000,000 to sustain funding for 18 additional fugitive 
operations teams advance funded by Public Law 109-234. This 
increase provides the full funding proposed for fiscal year 
2007, including the 700 detention beds associated with the new 
fugitive operations teams.
    Management and Administration, Internal Controls.--Included 
in the amount recommended by the Committee is an increase of 
$1,000,000, 8 positions, and 4 FTEs, as proposed in the budget, 
to establish the Office of Financial Management to oversee 
internal controls within ICE.
    Management and Administration, Procurement.--Included in 
the amount recommended by the Committee is an increase of 
$3,600,000, 32 positions, and 16 FTEs, as proposed in the 
budget, to improve the Office of Procurement.
    Management and Administration, Office of Professional 
Responsibility.--Included in the amount recommended by the 
Committee is $10,000,000 to expand the Office of Professional 
Responsibility to handle the increased workload from expansion 
of Customs and Border Protection [CBP] and ICE personnel.
    Cyber Crime Center.--Included in the amount recommended by 
the Committee is an increase of $2,000,000 for the Cyber Crime 
Center for continued expansion of data storage and processing 
capacity to support operations nationwide.
    Textile Transshipment Enforcement.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $4,750,000 for textile 
transshipment enforcement, as authorized by section 352 of the 
Trade Act of 2002. The Trade Act of 2002 authorizes 
appropriations for the hiring of 72 positions between CBP and 
ICE, including investigators.
    Legal Orientation Program.--The Committee does not include 
resources for the Legal Orientation Program. Despite clear 
direction, the administration does not transfer the funding for 
this program permanently to the Executive Office for 
Immigration Review within the Department of Justice.
    Detention and Removals Reporting.--The Committee continues 
to request ICE to submit a quarterly report to the Committee 
which compares the number of deportation, exclusion, and 
removal orders sought and obtained by ICE. The report should be 
broken down by district in which the removal order was issued; 
by type of order (deportation, exclusion, removal, expedited 
removal, and others); by agency issuing the order; by the 
number of cases in each category in which ICE has successfully 
removed the alien; and by the number of cases in each category 
in which ICE has not removed the alien. The first fiscal year 
2007 quarterly report is to be submitted no later than January 
30, 2006.
    Reducing the Number of Alien Absconders.--The Committee 
last year directed the Department, in conjunction with the 
Department of Justice, to submit a report by February 18, 2006, 
on the efforts each Department will take to reduce the 
absconder rate, including proposed changes to existing polices, 
procedures, and laws to further assist in reducing the 
absconder population. The Department has yet to submit this 
report. The Committee directs the Department to submit the 
report as expeditiously as possible.
    Detainee Bonds.--ICE and organizations that issue bonds for 
detainees could improve cooperation in order to more 
effectively reduce the number of aliens who abscond after the 
issuance of final Orders of Removal. ICE is to submit a report 
to the Committee by February 8, 2007, on how to improve 
information sharing and cooperation with bondholders.
    Detention of Unaccompanied Minors.--The Committee remains 
concerned about reports of unaccompanied alien minors who are 
not being transferred in a timely fashion to the Office of 
Refugee Resettlement [ORR]. The Committee directs ICE, in 
conjunction with CBP, to submit a report by February 8, 2007, 
detailing by month for each of fiscal years 2005 and 2006, the 
number of unaccompanied alien minors detained by DHS for 72 
hours or less, the number detained more than 72 hours, and an 
explanation for each minor held in DHS custody longer than 72 
hours. Further, the report should include recommendations of 
actions to improve the coordination between DHS and ORR.
    Separation of Families.--The Committee is concerned about 
the continued separation of families detained by the 
Department. The Committee directs ICE to submit a report by 
February 8, 2007, assessing the impact of the Hutto Family 
Center in Williamson, Texas, on the number of families required 
to be separated, and providing updated forecasts of family 
detention space needs for the next 2 years.
    Colorado Springs, Colorado.--The Committee directs ICE to 
submit a report by February 8, 2007, on the costs and need for 
establishing a sub-office in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 and budget

                       FEDERAL PROTECTIVE SERVICE

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................    $487,000,000
Budget estimate, 2007 \1\...............................     516,011,000
House allowance \1\.....................................     516,011,000
Committee recommendation \1\............................     516,011,000

\1\ Fully funded by offsetting collections paid by General Services 
Administration tenants and credited directly to this appropriation.

    The Federal Protective Service [FPS] is responsible for the 
security and protection of Federal property under the control 
of the General Services Administration [GSA]; and for the 
enforcement of laws for the protection of persons and property, 
the prevention of breaches of peace, and enforcement of any 
rules and regulations made and promulgated by the GSA 
Administrator. The FPS authority can also be extended by 
agreement to any area with a significant Federal interest. The 
FPS account provides funds for the salaries, benefits, travel, 
training, and other expenses of the program, offset by 
collections paid by GSA tenants and credited to the account.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $516,011,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the Federal Protective Service [FPS] for fiscal 
year 2007; this amount is fully offset by collections. This is 
the same as proposed in the budget and includes an increase of 
$29,011,000 for pay and other inflationary adjustments.
    Financial Management.--The Committee is aware of on-going 
efforts to determine the actual costs associated with the 
operations of FPS, and efforts by the Department and the Office 
of Management and Budget [OMB] to remediate the severe 
financial, procurement, and accounting problems at FPS. The 
Department is directed to submit to the Committee by November 
1, 2006, a detailed plan to provide sufficient resources to FPS 
to operate in fiscal year 2007, and to permanently fix the 
financial, procurement, and accounting processes and policies 
at FPS. Further, the Committee directs OMB to evaluate re-
merging FPS with the General Services Administration Federal 
Buildings Fund while retaining policy at the Department.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 and budget 
request levels:

                        AUTOMATION MODERNIZATION

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................     $39,748,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................      20,000,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    The Automation Modernization account provides funds for 
major information technology projects for Immigration and 
Customs Enforcement, including the Atlas Program comprised of 
seven interrelated project areas for the modernization of the 
information technology infrastructure.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $20,000,000, to remain available 
until expended, for Automation Modernization for fiscal year 
2007.
    The Committee is frustrated the administration would 
eliminate the single source of funding for upgrading and 
replacing the aging information technology platform in use at 
ICE. It is not possible to expect the frontline investigators, 
detention officers, and lawyers of ICE to be able to perform 
their jobs without adequate tools. The Committee acknowledges 
previous appropriations are still available for this purpose; 
however, it also notes ICE managers correctly took the time to 
improve and expand the business case justification for Atlas in 
order to improve program management. The project managers 
should not be punished for pursuing good management objectives.
    Expenditure Plan.--The Committee includes bill language 
making not less than $16,000,000 available for the development 
of Atlas upon the submission of a comprehensive plan for the 
program.

                              CONSTRUCTION

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................     $26,281,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      26,281,000
House allowance.........................................      26,281,000
Committee recommendation................................     101,281,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    This appropriation provides funding to plan, construct, 
renovate, equip, and maintain buildings and facilities 
necessary for the administration and enforcement of the laws 
relating to immigration, detention, and alien registration.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $101,281,000, to be available 
until expended, for Immigration and Customs Enforcement 
construction.
    Infrastructure Improvement Project.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $75,000,000 for infrastructure 
improvements at current Service Processing Centers [SPC] and 
projects to improve overall efficiency of the detention 
process. SPCs require a significant infusion of repair and 
maintenance funding to address projects related to structural, 
electric, heating/air conditioning, plumbing, water supply, 
waste management, security and other issues. These 
infrastructure projects are necessary for effective 
implementation of the bedspace enhancements funded by the 
Committee and for continued operation at current levels. The 
Committee is aware of a proposal to utilize a travel, 
transportation, and removal center to assist in more efficient 
use of bedspace in other parts of the country. The Committee 
encourages ICE to consider this proposal for inclusion in the 
infrastructure improvement project.
    Spending Plan.--The Committee directs the Department to 
submit a detail spending plan for the infrastructure 
improvement project by February 8, 2007. The spending plan 
should include, but not be limited to, the following 
information for each project and sub-project: a detailed cost 
breakout for construction, design, planning, and project 
management; total estimated project and sub-project cost; and 
the date each phase of the project and sub-project is scheduled 
to begin and be completed.

                 Transportation Security Administration

    The Transportation Security Administration [TSA] is charged 
with ensuring security across U.S. transportation systems, 
including aviation, railways, highways, pipelines, and 
waterways, and safeguarding the freedom of movement of people 
and commerce. Separate appropriations are provided for the 
following activities within TSA: aviation security; surface 
transportation security; transportation threat assessment and 
credentialing; transportation security support; and, Federal 
Air Marshals.

                           AVIATION SECURITY

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................  $4,561,312,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................   4,654,884,000
House allowance.........................................   4,704,414,000
Committee recommendation................................   4,751,580,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    The Transportation Security Administration [TSA] aviation 
security account provides for Federal aviation security, 
including screening of all passengers and baggage, deployment 
of on-site law enforcement, continuation of a uniform set of 
background requirements for airport and airline personnel, and 
deployment of explosive detection technology.
    The aviation security activities include funding for 
Federal and private contract transportation security officers 
[TSOs], including personnel compensation and benefits, 
training, claims, human resource services; air cargo security; 
procurement and maintenance of explosive detection systems; and 
checkpoint support.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $4,751,580,000 for aviation 
security. The Committee has included the new program, project, 
and activity structure, as proposed in the budget, regarding 
transportation security officers. The Committee believes the 
new structures provide TSA with needed flexibilities and 
enables it to optimize TSO workforce funds. The Committee 
directs TSA to maintain the tracking and visibility of the 
previous budgetary structure and expects the Department to 
include both structures in future budget submissions.
    The Committee continues and makes permanent bill language 
providing reimbursement for security services and related 
equipment and supplies provided in support of general aviation 
access to the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport shall 
be credited to the ``Aviation Security'' appropriation and be 
available until expended for these purposes only.
    The Committee includes bill language requiring the 
Secretary to provide the Committees on Appropriations of the 
Senate and House of Representatives a report in response to the 
findings of the Department's Office of Inspector General's 
report (OIG-04-44) concerning contractor fees.
    The Committee also continues and expands bill language 
concerning screening of Government officials.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 and budget 
request levels:

                         AVIATION SECURITY FEES

    Prior to September 11, 2001, aviation security was paid for 
and overseen by the commercial passenger air carriers. Pursuant 
to section 118 of Public Law 107-71, the Aviation and 
Transportation Security Act [ATSA], the Federal Government 
assumed responsibility for this mission. Through ATSA, the 
Government is authorized to collect fees from the air carriers 
for the carriers' portion of security costs based on what they 
paid in calendar year 2000, the last full year prior to 
September 11, 2001. According to TSA's initial estimates in 
2000, industry paid approximately $750,000,000 for security; 
however, upon further auditing by the Government Accountability 
Office [GAO], done at the request of the Committee, it was 
discovered that the amount of passenger and property screening 
costs incurred by air carriers in 2000 was approximately 
$448,000,000 versus the $319,000,000 paid to TSA (GAO-05-558, 
April 2005). The GAO audit (GAO-05-558) concluded TSA should be 
collecting an annual average of approximately $448,000,000 from 
the air carriers. The Committee assumes TSA will collect 
$546,000,000, as proposed in the budget, in air carrier fees 
that will be available to directly offset TSA appropriations 
requirements. Of this amount, $448,000,000 is the total 
reflected in the GAO audit (GAO-05-558), plus $98,000,000 in 
retroactive fiscal year 2005 and fiscal year 2006 fees.
    In addition, the President's fiscal year 2007 budget 
proposes a legislative proposal, as a general provision to the 
appropriations legislation, to increase passenger aviation 
security fees to generate an estimated additional 
$1,337,000,000 in fiscal year 2007 offsetting collections which 
the Committee has not included. The Congressional Budget 
Office, in its analysis of the President's budget, has 
reestimated this amount to be $1,230,000,000.

               TRANSPORTATION SECURITY OFFICER WORKFORCE

    The Committee recommends $2,618,800,000 for TSO workforce 
requirements. The following table summarizes the Committee's

    Privatized Screening Airports.--The Committee recommends 
$148,600,000 for contract screening airports for fiscal year 
2007. This amount is $10,343,000 more than the fiscal year 2006 
level and the same as proposed in the budget.
    The Committee is aware of minimal interest in the TSA 
screener ``opt-out'' program thus far. To date, the Committee 
has provided the funding requested for this effort with the 
understanding that there is airport interest in screening 
privatization. If this proves untrue, the Committee encourages 
TSA to reprogram these funds pursuant to section 503 of this 
act.
    Passenger and Baggage TSO Personnel, Compensation, and 
Benefits (Excluding Privatized Screening).--The Committee 
recommends $2,470,200,000 for passenger and baggage TSO 
personnel, compensation, and benefits. This amount is 
$90,240,000 more than the fiscal year 2006 level and equal to 
the amount proposed in the budget and sufficient to maintain 
the current level of TSOs.
    The Committee includes $10,000,000, as proposed in the 
budget, for a program designed to assist in TSO retention. The 
Committee has also included $55,000,000 for worker's 
compensation payments, an increase of $20,000,000 from fiscal 
year 2006 and the level proposed by the budget. The Committee 
is concerned with the unusually high attrition rate for TSOs 
continues to hamper TSA's ability to maintain a steady 
workforce. The attrition rate for full time TSOs is over 20 
percent and exceeds 50 percent for part-time TSOs. The 
Committee directs TSA to report no later than February 8, 2007, 
on findings from interviews of TSOs leaving the TSA workforce. 
The report shall include a strategy on how the retention 
initiative funding will reduce TSO attrition rates to a more 
manageable level. The Committee is also concerned with the 
rising costs of worker injuries and encourages TSA to 
aggressively reduce injury costs through strategies of 
prevention, education, case management, and nurse intervention.
    The Committee urges the Department to develop performance 
measures and performance targets for the use of alternative 
screening procedures in checked baggage screening to help TSA 
measure its progress in working toward minimizing the need to 
use alternative screening procedures at airports and to have 
more complete information on the overall performance of the 
checked baggage screening system.
    The Committee includes bill language to increase TSA's 
flexibility regarding TSO workforce resources by allowing the 
transfer of funds from the screener workforce accounts to 
purchase screening equipment.
    Exit Lanes.--Following enactment of the Aviation and 
Transportation Security Act (Public Law 107-71), TSA assumed 
responsibility for a broad array of airport security functions, 
including all aspects of passenger and baggage screening. TSA 
recently announced its intention to shift the responsibility 
for staffing passenger exit lanes not co-located with passenger 
entry checkpoints to individual commercial service airports. 
The Committee is concerned that this new requirement may create 
an undue burden for several airports without a majority of co-
located passenger entry and exit points. Therefore, prior to 
adopting this new policy regarding access control at exit 
lanes, the Committee directs TSA to provide a briefing to the 
Committee on addressing the security and economic impacts of 
any such change.

           TRANSPORTATION SECURITY OFFICER TRAINING AND OTHER

    Transportation Security Officer Training and Other.--The 
Committee recommends $244,466,000 for TSO training and other 
activities. The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 and budget 
request levels:

reception and representation expenses; $2,000,000 for the model 
workplace initiative; and $11,900,000 for hazardous materials 
disposal.

                       OTHER SCREENING OPERATIONS

    The Committee recommends $926,866,000 for other screening 
operations for fiscal year 2007. The following table summarizes 
the Committee's recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 
2006 and budget request levels:

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.
\2\ Excludes the Aviation Security Capital Fund which provides $250,000,000 annually in direct funding from fee
  collections pursuant to section 605 of Public Law 108-176.

    Human Resource Services.--The Committee provides 
$200,000,000 for human resource services. Funding is provided 
to manage human resources, payroll, personnel policies, 
programs and systems, maintain oversight of all human resources 
contractual activities, and provide advice and counsel to 
senior managers on personnel issues.
    Checkpoint Support.--The Committee recommends $180,966,000, 
an increase of $17,616,000 from the fiscal year 2006 level. 
Funding is provided for passenger checkpoint support for 
reconfiguration, purchase, installation, and maintenance of 
checkpoint equipment, and electronic surveillance of 
checkpoints.
    Of the amount provided, the Committee includes funding for 
the development and piloting of an advanced checkpoint portal 
solution. The integrated use of new technologies, which can 
consistently perform in an operational environment, will 
increase the accuracy and efficiency of aviation security 
enabling TSA to reduce its workforce. Currently, only 37 out of 
448 airports have received new checkpoint technologies to 
screen passengers for explosives. The Committee directs TSA to 
develop a strategic plan for screening passengers for 
explosives, including a timeline for deploying emerging 
technologies to airports, by category, and the percentage of 
all passengers that will be screened by emerging technologies. 
This plan is to be submitted to the Committee no later than 
February 8, 2006.
    Explosive Detection Systems [EDS]/Explosive Trace Detection 
[ETD] Procurement.--The Committee recommends $141,400,000, 
$50,400,000 more than the level proposed in the budget, for 
EDS/ETD procurement. The Committee remains concerned the 
President's budget request for fiscal year 2007 cut this 
critically important program by nearly 50 percent. Within the 
funds provided, no less than $20,000,000 shall be made 
available to procure and deploy next generation explosive 
detection systems.
    Next generation EDS are potentially more efficient than the 
current generation of screening units and may demonstrate a 
significant improvement in installation, integration, and life-
cycle costs when compared to existing systems. The Department 
should explore multiple technologies in this area.
    Explosive Detection Systems [EDS]/Explosive Trace Detection 
[ETD] Installation.--The Committee recommends $171,500,000, an 
increase of $126,950,000 from the fiscal year 2006 level and 
$77,500,000 from the level proposed in the budget, for EDS/ETD 
installation. This increase will ensure that EDS/ETD machines 
are installed in an expedited manner.
    Explosive Detection Systems [EDS]/Explosive Trace Detection 
[ETD] Maintenance.--The Committee recommends $210,000,000, an 
increase of $12,000,000 from the fiscal year 2006 level and a 
decrease of $24,000,000 from the level proposed in the budget 
for EDS/ETD maintenance. The Committee is encouraged by the 
savings that TSA has achieved in per-machine maintenance costs 
and urge TSA to continue to work aggressively with the 
workforce and contractors to lower these costs. The Committee 
includes bill language limiting the obligation of $25,000,000 
until the Department provides a report to the Committee in 
response to the findings in the Department's Office of 
Inspector General's report (OIG-04-44) concerning contractor 
fees.
    TSA is currently expanding its refurbishment strategy to 
determine the extent to which an EDS unit will have to be 
repaired or refurbished when it is designated for waterfall 
deployment. The Committee is supportive of this approach and 
directs TSA to work aggressively to save costs by maximizing 
the refurbishment of EDS equipment.
    Airport Security Modifications.--The Aviation Security 
Capital Fund authorized by Public Law 108-176, the Vision 100-
Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act, makes $250,000,000 
available for fiscal year 2007 from fee collections to satisfy 
existing Letters of Intent [LOIs] with airports for the 
installation of explosive detection systems.
    The Committee is concerned that the TSA estimate of 
eligible reimbursable costs included in the LOI agreement for 
the Los Angeles and Ontario international airports differs 
substantially from the revised estimate submitted to TSA by the 
airport sponsors last year. The Committee directs GAO, 45 days 
after enactment of the act, to report to the Committee and the 
Secretary a correct estimate of eligible costs and to provide a 
detailed explanation of the reasons for any differences from 
the original estimate, including identification of and the 
party responsible for any material mistakes, omissions, and 
infeasible design concepts in the original estimate.

                   AVIATION DIRECTION AND ENFORCEMENT

    The Committee recommends $961,448,000 for aviation security 
direction and enforcement. The following table summarizes the 
Committee's recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 
and budget request levels:

    Aviation Regulation and Other Enforcement.--The Committee 
recommends $217,516,000, as proposed in the budget, for 
aviation regulation and other enforcement.
    Airport Management, Information Technology, and Support.--
The Committee provides $666,032,000, as proposed in the budget. 
The decrease of $13,140,000 from the fiscal year 2006 level is 
to realign base resources to higher priorities, as proposed in 
the budget.
    Federal Flight Deck Officer and Flight Crew Training 
Programs.--The Committee recommends $22,900,000, a decrease of 
$7,295,000 from the fiscal year 2006 level. This reduction is 
made due to high unobligated balances in this program.
    Air Cargo Security.--The Committee recommends $55,000,000, 
an increase of $550,000 from than the fiscal year 2006 level, 
for air cargo security activities.
    The Committee expects TSA to provide the funding necessary 
for the National Explosives Detection Canine Team Program to 
meet its goal of canine teams devoting approximately 25 percent 
of their airport utilization time to screening cargo. The 
Committee directs TSA to submit a report to the Committee no 
later than February 8, 2007, on efforts to achieve this goal.
    The Committee includes bill language directing the 
Secretary of Homeland Security to research, develop, and 
procure new technology to inspect and screen air cargo carried 
on passenger aircraft at the earliest date possible. Existing 
checked baggage explosive detection equipment and screeners 
shall be utilized to screen air cargo carried on passenger 
aircraft to the greatest extent practicable at each airport 
until such technologies are available. The language also 
requires the Department to report air cargo inspection 
statistics quarterly to the Committee, by airport and air 
carrier, including any reasons for non-compliance with the 
second proviso of section 513 of Public Law 108-334, within 45 
days after the end of the quarter.

                    SURFACE TRANSPORTATION SECURITY

    The surface transportation security account provides 
funding for personnel and operational resources to assess the 
risk of a terrorist attack on non-aviation modes, standards and 
procedures to address those risks, and ensuring compliance with 
established regulations and policies.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $37,200,000, as proposed in the 
budget, for surface transportation security. The following 
table summarizes the Committee's recommendations as compared to

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    Hazardous Materials Truck Tracking and Training.--The 
Committee remains supportive of the Hazardous Materials Truck 
Tracking and Training program. No additional funding is 
recommended for the program due to the availability of large 
unobligated balances to continue these activities in fiscal 
year 2007.
    Rail Security.--The Committee recommends $13,200,000, as 
proposed in the budget, for the safety and security of the 
Nation's railways. The increase of $5,280,000 from the fiscal 
year 2006 level will support 100 rail inspectors and full 
operation of 30 canine teams. These inspectors are to conduct 
on-site inspections of transit and passenger rail systems to 
ensure compliance with minimum standards security directives 
and to identify coverage gaps. The Committee expects TSA 
Federal compliance inspectors to leverage existing TSA, Federal 
Railroad Administration, and Federal Transit Authority 
resources. Additional funding for rail security is provided 
under the Office of Domestic Preparedness, and Science and 
Technology.
    Surface Transportation.--The Committee is cognizant of the 
disparity of resources between surface transportation security 
and aviation security. The Committee encourages TSA to utilize 
technologies which would have the effect of force multipliers 
when considering the movement of goods and commerce on our rail 
and inland navigation systems.

    Secure Flight.--The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for 
Secure Flight. The Committee recommendation, in conjunction 
with available carryover balances, should be sufficient to meet 
fiscal year 2007 program requirements as currently articulated.
    The Committee supports the additional layer of aviation 
security provided through the Secure Flight program. However, 
the Committee is concerned with continued delays in the Secure 
Flight program. TSA reports the program is undergoing a ``re-
baselining effort'' and the shape and size of the program is 
unclear. Given this reality, the Committee is reluctant to 
provide any resources beyond the $15,000,000 proposed.
    Crew Vetting.--The Committee recommends $14,700,000, as 
proposed in the budget, for continued evaluation and analysis 
of airline crew lists against watch lists and lost/stolen 
passport lists.
    Registered Traveler.--The Committee assumes $35,101,000, as 
proposed in the budget, in fee collections to fully integrate 
the international and domestic Registered Traveler Program. The 
implementation of the Registered Traveler Program provides an 
opportunity to test integrated security solutions at very low 
risk, real world conditions. The Committee recommends using 
Registered Traveler lanes at airports as one of the means to 
test aviation security and to expedite the implementation of 
advanced technologies.
    Transportation Worker Identification Credential.--The 
Committee assumes $20,000,000, as proposed in the budget, in 
fee collections for the Transportation Worker Identification 
Credential.
    Hazardous Materials Driver License Endorsement Program.--
The Committee assumes $19,000,000, as proposed in the budget, 
in fee collections to conduct name and criminal background 
checks on an estimated 3.5 million hazardous materials 
commercial drivers.
    Alien Flight School Background Checks.--The Committee 
assumes $2,000,000, as proposed in the budget, in fee 
collections to conduct background checks on aliens and other 
individuals determined by the Secretary who present risk to 
aviation and national security.

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................  $5,161,771,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................   5,518,843,000
House allowance.........................................   5,481,643,000
Committee recommendation \2\............................   5,534,349,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148 and 
excludes $132,000,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations related 
to hurricanes pursuant to Public Law 109-148 and $115,662,000 in

    The Operating Expenses appropriation provides funds for the 
operation and maintenance of multipurpose vessels, aircraft, 
and shore units strategically located along the coasts and 
inland waterways of the United States and in selected areas 
overseas. The program activities of this appropriation fall 
into the following categories:
    Search and Rescue.--As one of its earliest and most 
traditional missions, the Coast Guard maintains a nationwide 
system of boats, aircraft, cutters, and rescue coordination 
centers on 24-hour alert.
    Aids to Navigation.--To help mariners determine their 
location and avoid accidents, the Coast Guard maintains a 
network of manned and unmanned aids to navigation along the 
Nation's coasts and on its inland waterways. In addition, the 
Coast Guard operates radio stations in the United States and 
abroad to serve the needs of the armed services and marine and 
air commerce.
    Marine Safety.--The Coast Guard ensures compliance with 
Federal statutes and regulations designed to improve safety in 
the merchant marine industry and operates a recreational 
boating safety program.
    Marine Environmental Protection.--The primary objectives of 
the marine environmental protection program are to minimize the 
dangers of marine pollution and to assure the safety of ports 
and waterways.
    Enforcement of Laws and Treaties.--The Coast Guard is the 
principal maritime enforcement agency with regard to Federal 
laws on the navigable waters of the United States and the high 
seas, including fisheries, drug smuggling, illegal immigration, 
and hijacking of vessels.
    Ice Operations.--In the Arctic and Antarctic, Coast Guard 
icebreakers escort supply ships, support research activities 
and Department of Defense operations, survey uncharted waters, 
and collect scientific data. The Coast Guard also assists 
commercial vessels through ice-covered waters.
    Defense Readiness.--During peacetime, the Coast Guard 
maintains an effective state of military preparedness to 
operate as a service in the Navy in time of war or national 
emergency at the direction of the President. As such, the Coast 
Guard has primary responsibility for the security of ports, 
waterways, and navigable waters up to 200 miles offshore.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $5,534,349,000 for Coast Guard 
Operating Expenses, including $24,255,000 from the Oil Spill 
Liability Trust Fund and $340,000,000 for Coast Guard defense-
related activities, including drug interdiction. The Committee 
recommends $10,000 for official reception and representation 
expenses. The recommendation provides $81,000,000, the level 
proposed in the budget, for Personnel and Related Support in 
the ``Acquisition, Construction, and Improvements'' [AC&I;] 
account. However, the recommendation provides this funding 
under the ``Operating Expenses'' account instead of under the 
``Acquisition, Construction, and Improvements'' account. Within 
30 days of the close of each quarter of the fiscal year, the 
Coast Guard shall report personnel expenditures associated with 
each AC&I; program, project, and activity as displayed in the 
Comparative Statement of New Budget Authority for Fiscal Year 
2007 located in the back of this report.
    The recommendation provides the following program 
increases: $2,000,000 for financial audit remediation, 
$3,074,000 for maritime security response teams, $4,625,000 to 
maximize domain awareness, and $8,934,000 for personnel and 
operating funds for the National Capital Region Air Defense 
[NCRAD]. The recommendation does not include a transfer of 
$5,000,000 from Customs and Border Protection [CBP] to the 
Coast Guard for NCRAD, as proposed in the budget. Funds were 
never appropriated to CBP for this mission.

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148 and excludes $132,000,000 in emergency
  supplemental appropriations related to hurricanes pursuant to Public Law 109-148 and $115,662,000 in emergency
  supplemental appropriations pursuant to Public Law 109-234.

    Reprogramming.--The specific detail in the above table 
shall serve as the controls for purposes of any reprogramming 
of funds pursuant to section 503 of this act.
    AC&I; Personnel.--The Committee is aware of a well-
documented need for increased oversight for several projects 
funded by the Coast Guard's ``Acquisition, Construction, and 
Improvements'' appropriation. Specified funding for AC&I; 
personnel compensation and benefits and related costs of 
personnel administration does not readily permit flexible 
personnel assignment to accelerate management and oversight of 
new or existing projects without detrimentally affecting other 
project management and oversight. Due to the need for both 
increased oversight and increased ability to manage multiple 
major acquisition projects, the Committee includes budget 
authority for AC&I; personnel compensation, benefits and related 
support within the ``Operating Expenses'' appropriation. Based 
on the Coast Guard's budget request, the Committee recommends 
not less than $81,000,000 be expended for this specific 
purpose.
    Long Range Aids to Navigation [Loran]-C.--The Committee 
denies the request to terminate operations at LORAN stations 
nationwide and directs the Secretary to refrain from taking any 
steps to reduce operations at such stations. The Committee 
further directs the Secretary, in consultation with the 
Secretary of Transportation, to submit a report to the 
Appropriations Committee and the Commerce Committee regarding 
the future of the LORAN system. The report shall include an 
analysis of the costs and benefits of the LORAN system, the 
merits of maintaining the LORAN system as a back-up 
navigational aid, and the benefits of using the LORAN system in 
conjunction with the Global Positioning System. The report 
shall be submitted to the Committees within 180 days of 
enactment of this act.
    Coast Guard Headquarters Relocation.--The Committee 
recommendation does not include funding for the relocation of 
the Coast Guard headquarters to the site of the former St. 
Elizabeths Hospital. According to the General Services 
Administration [GSA] prospectus, construction will not be 
completed until fiscal year 2010. Funding for Coast Guard's 
above tier design, tenant improvements, security features, and 
other equipment will not be necessary in fiscal year 2007. 
Further, the Committee has requested the Department provide a 
plan for its relocation to the St. Elizabeths site on multiple 
occasions. To date, the Department has not provided a plan. The 
Committee finds that prior to appropriating any funds for 
further Department relocations, it is prudent to review a 
comprehensive plan, including schedules and costs, for the 
designated site.
    Covert Surveillance Aircraft.--The Committee recommendation 
does not include $1,413,000 for the operational expenses 
associated with the covert surveillance aircraft.
    National Maritime Center Consolidation.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $12,000,000, as proposed in the budget, 
for the National Maritime Center consolidation.
    Polar Icebreakers.--The Committee expects all costs to 
operate the polar icebreakers for National Science Foundation 
[NSF] research, including unanticipated maintenance, will be 
reimbursed by NSF.
    Coast Guard Yard.--The Committee recognizes the Coast Guard 
Yard at Curtis Bay, Maryland, is a critical component of the 
Coast Guard's core logistics capability which directly supports 
fleet readiness. The Committee further recognizes the Yard has 
been a vital part of the Coast Guard's readiness and 
infrastructure for more than 100 years and believes that 
sufficient industrial work should be assigned to the Yard to 
maintain this capability.
    Quarterly Acquisition and Mission Emphasis Reports.--The 
Commandant is directed to continue to submit the quarterly 
acquisition and mission emphasis reports to the Committee 
consistent with the deadlines articulated under section 360 of 
Division I of Public Law 108-7.
    Occupational Safety and Health Risks.--The Committee 
encourages the Coast Guard to expedite the deployment of an 
innovative web-based management system that will provide 
powerful tools to the Coast Guard for managing and minimizing 
occupational safety risks to personnel and risks to readiness.
    Marine Vessel and Cold Water Safety Education.--The 
Committee encourages the Coast Guard to continue existing 
cooperative agreements and partnerships with organizations that 
provide marine vessel safety training and cold water immersion 
education and outreach programs for fishermen and children.

                ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE AND RESTORATION

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................     $11,880,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      11,880,000
House allowance.........................................      11,880,000
Committee recommendation................................      10,880,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    The Environmental Compliance and Restoration account 
provides funds to address environmental problems at former and 
current Coast Guard units as required by applicable Federal, 
State, and local environmental laws and regulations. Planned 
expenditures for these funds include major upgrades to 
petroleum and regulated-substance storage tanks, restoration of 
contaminated ground water and soils, remediation efforts at 
hazardous substance disposal sites, and initial site surveys 
and actions necessary to bring Coast Guard shore facilities and 
vessels into compliance with environmental laws and 
regulations.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $10,880,000 for environmental 
compliance and restoration. Reductions in funding are due to 
fiscal constraints. The Committee continues to support this 
program.

                            RESERVE TRAINING

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................    $117,810,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     123,948,000
House allowance.........................................     122,348,000
Committee recommendation................................     123,948,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    The Reserve training program provides trained units and 
qualified persons for active duty in the Coast Guard in time of 
war or national emergency, or at such other times as national 
security requires. Coast Guard reservists must also train for 
mobilization assignments unique to the Coast Guard in time of 
war, such as port security operations associated with the Coast 
Guard's Maritime Defense Zone mission, including deployable 
port security units.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $123,948,000 as proposed in the 
budget, for Reserve training.

              ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION, AND IMPROVEMENTS

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................  $1,130,382,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................   1,169,537,000
House allowance.........................................   1,139,663,000
Committee recommendation \2\............................   1,145,329,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148. 
Excludes $74,500,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations pursuant 
to Public Law 109-148 and $191,730,000 in emergency supplemental 
appropriations pursuant to Public Law 109-234.
\2\ Excludes $81,000,000 for Personnel and Related Support proposed in 
the ``Acquisition, Construction, and Improvements'' account provided in 
the ``Operating Expenses'' account; and $82,968,000 in rescissions 
recommended.

    Funding in this account supports Coast Guard plans for 
fleet expansion and improvement. This funding provides for the 
acquisition, construction, and improvement of vessels, 
aircraft, information management resources, shore facilities, 
and aids to navigation required to execute the Coast Guard's 
missions and achieve its performance goals.
    Vessels.--The Coast Guard continues to acquire multi-
mission platforms that use advanced technology to reduce life-
cycle operating costs.
    Integrated Deepwater System (Deepwater).--The Deepwater 
capability replacement project is a multi-year, performance-
based acquisition that will replace or modernize the major 
Coast Guard cutters, offshore patrol boats, fixed wing 
aircraft, multi-missioned helicopters and the communications 
equipment, sensors, and logistics systems required to maintain 
and operate them.
    Other Equipment.--The Coast Guard invests in numerous 
management information and decision support systems that will 
result in increased efficiencies, including Rescue 21, formerly 
the National Distress and Response System Modernization 
Project.
    Shore Facilities.--The Coast Guard invests in modern 
structures that are more energy-efficient, comply with 
regulatory codes, minimize follow-on maintenance requirements, 
and replace existing dilapidated structures.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $1,145,329,000 for acquisitions, 
construction, and improvements, including $19,800,000 from the 
Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund and excluding $82,968,000 in 
rescissions recommended in this bill. The Committee 
recommendation appropriates $81,000,000 for personnel and 
related support to the ``Operating Expenses'' account instead 
of the ``Acquisition, Construction, and Improvements'' account, 
where it was proposed in the budget.
    The Committee recommendation includes $41,850,000, as 
proposed in the budget, for the first Fast Response Cutter and 
$417,780,000, as proposed in the budget, for the National 
Security Cutter. Further, the recommendation includes 
$32,373,000, as proposed in the budget, for phase 1 of the 
multi-mission helicopter conversion and re-engining of HH-65 
helicopters in the Coast Guard fleet. The Committee expects the 
Coast Guard to move forward with the relocation and rebuilding 
of the Gulfport Coast Guard Station, in coordination with State 
and local officials at the earliest date possible and to submit 
to the Committee a report detailing the full design, 
construction, and equipment cost for the new facility by 
February 8, 2007. The recommendation includes $48,510,000, as 
proposed in the budget, for the National Capital Region Air 
Defense. The Committee provides $24,750,000 for the Response 
Boat-Medium. The Committee provides $35,145,000 for systems 
engineering and integration and $43,975,000 for Government 
program management. The following table summarizes the 
Committee's recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 
and budget request levels:

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148. Excludes $74,500,000 in emergency
  supplemental appropriations hurricanes pursuant to Public Law 109-148 and $191,730,000 in emergency
  supplemental appropriations pursuant to Public Law 109-234.
\2\ Funding for Airborne Use of Force and Covert Surveillance Aircraft was categorized separately from Deepwater
  in fiscal year 2006. Funding for these programs is moved into Deepwater in fiscal year 2007.
\3\ Funding for Personnel and Related Support is provided in the ``Operating Expenses'' account.

    AC&I; Personnel.--As noted previously in the ``Operating 
Expenses'' section of this report, the Committee recommends 
providing funding in the Coast Guard's ``Operating Expenses'' 
appropriation for personnel compensation, benefits, and the 
related costs of personnel administration for projects funded 
by the ``Acquisition, Construction, and Improvements'' 
appropriation.
    Deepwater Acquisition Program.--The Committee notes a 
Government Accountability Office report (GAO-06-546) states 
``changes to Deepwater plan appear sound, and program 
management has improved, but continued monitoring is 
warranted.'' The Committee agrees with these conclusions. The 
Deepwater program is critical to the Coast Guard's ability to 
address its homeland and maritime border security mission, and 
therefore should be accelerated toward completion in 2016 
rather than 2026. The Committee encourages the Coast Guard to 
request sufficient funding in the fiscal year 2008 budget 
request to accelerate the Deepwater program accordingly.
    Automatic Identification System [AIS].--The Committee does 
not provide funding as proposed by the fiscal year 2007 budget 
for the AIS. AIS is critical to port security, however, the 
Committee notes significant unobligated balances will be 
available in fiscal year 2007. Further, the Committee rescinds 
$1,835,000 of the fiscal year 2006 unobligated balances.
    Covert Surveillance Aircraft.--The Committee rescinds 
$1,933,000 in unobligated balances of prior year appropriations 
for the Covert Surveillance Aircraft.
    HH-60J Replacement.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$14,000,000 to replace the HH-60J which crashed in the waters 
off Alaska in December 2004.
    Patrol Boats.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$41,580,000, as proposed in the budget, for the Fast Response 
Cutter program. This amount shall be used to conduct a business 
case analysis on the cutter, develop a proposal, and fund the 
preliminary design and contract design. The Committee commends 
the Coast Guard for suspending the program to re-evaluate the 
design to more accurately reflect the Coast Guard's critical 
mission needs. However, the Committee notes significant value 
in pursuing the Fast Response Cutter program to address the 
Coast Guard's long-term needs.
    In the short term, the Committee is concerned with the 
current gap in patrol boat hours. To address this gap, the 
recommendation rescinds $79,200,000 from balances in the Fast 
Response Cutter program and reappropriates these funds for the 
purchase of off-the-shelf replacement patrol boats to address 
the patrol boat gap as soon as possible.
    Command and Control System for Common Operating Picture 
[C4ISR].--The Committee provides $55,786,000 for C4ISR.
    Search and Rescue Training Facility.--The Committee is 
concerned about the lack of progress in replacing inadequate 
training facilities for Coast Guard rescue divers. In light of 
the tremendous work and success of these divers during 
Hurricane Katrina, the Committee encourages the Coast Guard to 
expedite construction of a modern facility.
    Rescue 21.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$39,600,000, as proposed in the budget, for Rescue 21. Rescue 
21 funds may be expended to complete the Anuenue Project.
    Capital Investment Plan.--The Committee expects the Coast 
Guard to continue to submit a comprehensive capital investment 
plan each year at the time the President's budget is submitted 
to the Congress.
    The Committee directs the Commandant to provide to the 
Congress, at the time of the President's budget submission, a 
list of approved but unfunded Coast Guard priorities and the 
funds needed for each.

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................     $14,850,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................................
House allowance.........................................      17,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      15,000,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    Under the provisions of the Truman-Hobbs Act of June 21, 
1940 (33 U.S.C. 511 et seq.), the Coast Guard, as the Federal 
Government's agent, is required to share with owners the cost 
of altering railroad and publicly-owned highway bridges which 
obstruct the free movement of navigation on navigable waters of 
the United States in accordance with the formula established in 
33 U.S.C. 516. Alteration of obstructive highway bridges is 
eligible for funding from the Federal-Aid Highways program.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides $15,000,000 for the alteration of 
bridges, of which $4,000,000 is for the Fourteen Mile CSX 
Transportation Company Bridge, Mobile, Alabama; $2,000,000 is 
for the Burlington Northern Railroad Bridge, Burlington, Iowa; 
$4,000,000 is for the Galveston Causeway Bridge, Galveston, 
Texas; $2,000,000 is for the Elgin, Joliet, and Eastern Railway 
Company Bridge, Morris, Illinois; and $3,000,000 is for the 
Chelsea Street Bridge, Chelsea, Massachusetts.

    The Coast Guard's Research and Development program develops 
techniques, methods, hardware, and systems which directly 
contribute to increasing the productivity and effectiveness of 
the Coast Guard's operating missions. This account provides 
funds to operate and maintain the Coast Guard Research and 
Development Center.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $17,573,000 for the Coast Guard's 
research, development, test, and evaluation activities. The 
Committee disagrees with the President's budget proposal to 
transfer a portion of the funding for Coast Guard research and 
development to the Science and Technology ``Research, 
Development, Acquisition, and Operations'' account.

                              RETIRED PAY

House allowance.........................................   1,063,323,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,063,323,000

    This account provides for the retired pay of military 
personnel of the Coast Guard and Coast Guard Reserve, members 
of the former Lighthouse Service, and for annuities payable to 
beneficiaries of retired military personnel under the retired 
serviceman's family protection plan (10 U.S.C. 1431-1446) and 
survivor benefit plan (10 U.S.C. 1447-1455); payments for 
career status bonuses under the National Defense Authorization 
Act; and for payments for medical care of retired personnel and 
their dependents under the Dependents Medical Care Act (10 
U.S.C., ch. 55).

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $1,063,323,000, as proposed in the 
budget for retired pay.

                      United States Secret Service


                                SUMMARY

    The United States Secret Service's primary responsibilities 
are the security of the President, the Vice President, and 
other dignitaries and designated individuals; for enforcement 
of laws relating to obligations and securities of the United 
States and laws relating to financial crimes; and for 
protection of the White House and other buildings within the 
Washington, DC, metropolitan area.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends a new appropriation structure for 
the United States Secret Service, separating funds previously 
appropriated for ``Salaries and Expenses'' into two new 
accounts: ``Protection, Administration, and Training'' and 
``Investigations and Field Operations''.
    The Committee recommends a total program level of 
$1,225,958,000 for the activities of the United States Secret 
Service for fiscal year 2007. The following table summarizes 
the Committee's recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 
2006 and budget request levels:

\1\ For comparative purposes, $930,879,000 and $312,499,000 were proposed for ``Protection, Administration, and
  Training'' and ``Investigations and Field Operations'', respectively, in the fiscal year 2007 budget.
\2\ Funding for these accounts was provided in fiscal year 2006 and proposed in fiscal year 2007 under the
  ``Salaries and Expenses'' account. For comparative purposes, $891,955,000 and $304,271,000 were provided for
  ``Protection, Administration, and Training'' and ``Investigations and Field Operations'', respectively, in
  fiscal year 2006, including a 1 percent rescission pursuant to 109-148, excluding $3,600,000 in emergency
  supplemental appropriations pursuant to Public Law 109-148.
\3\ Funding is provided under ``Protection, Administration, and Training''.

                PROTECTION, ADMINISTRATION, AND TRAINING

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................         ( \2\ )
Budget estimate, 2007...................................         ( \2\ )
House allowance.........................................    $956,399,000
Committee recommendation................................     918,028,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148 and 
excludes $3,600,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations related to 
hurricanes and other natural disasters pursuant to Public Law 109-148.
\2\ Funds for this purpose are included in the ``Salaries and Expenses'' 
account, but are provided in this new appropriations account for fiscal 
year 2007. For comparative purposes, the fiscal year 2006 appropriation 
is $89,955,000 and the fiscal year 2007 budget estimate is $930,879,000.

    The Secret Service Protection, Administration, and Training 
appropriation provides funds for the protection of the 
President, the Vice President, and other dignitaries and 
designated individuals; planning and implementation of 
operational security plans for designated National Special 
Security Events; and protection of the White House and other 
buildings within the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $918,028,000 for Protection, 
Administration, and Training. The Committee recommendation 
includes an increase of $26,072,000 from the comparative fiscal 
year 2006 level and a decrease of $12,851,000 from the 
comparative level proposed in the budget.
    The Committee is very concerned the Service continues to 
conduct poor budget planning. Under the guise of base 
shortfalls, the Service has repeatedly sought additional funds 
for Protection without fully considering reprogramming funds 
from other programs. With long-term projected budget shortfalls 
and a tight fiscal environment, the Service needs to prioritize 
its missions and allocate sufficient resources for its required 
missions.
    Protection of Persons and Facilities.--The recommendation 
includes an increase of $5,949,000 from the level proposed in 
the budget to address the fiscal year 2007 Protection 
shortfall; $149,370,000 for Headquarters Administration; and 
$18,400,000, as proposed in the budget, for candidate nominee 
protection for the 2008 presidential election. The 
recommendation does not include funding increases for the 
protective terrorist countermeasures program as proposed in the 
budget. Due to tight fiscal constraints, the Secret Service is 
advised to focus limited resources on requesting full funding 
for its base protection requirements before seeking 
programmatic increases.
    Reimbursement for Protection of Federal Employees.--Bill 
language is included regarding the reimbursement for protection 
of certain Federal employees.
    Special Event Fund.--A separate account for the Special 
Event Fund is not recommended, as proposed in the budget. The 
Committee does not recommend additional appropriations for 
unanticipated costs related to National Special Security 
Events. The Committee notes there is a current unobligated 
balance of over $4,900,000 in prior year appropriations 
provided solely for this purpose.
    Distinct Entity.--Pursuant to Public Law 109-177, section 
607, the United States Secret Service shall be maintained as a 
distinct entity within the Department of Homeland Security. The 
Director of the United States Secret Service shall report 
directly to the Secretary of Homeland Security.

                  INVESTIGATIONS AND FIELD OPERATIONS

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................         ( \2\ )
Budget estimate, 2007x..................................         ( \2\ )
House allowance.........................................    $312,499,000
Committee recommendation................................     304,205,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.
\2\ Funds for this purpose are included in the ``Salaries and Expenses'' 
account, but are provided in this new appropriations account for fiscal 
year 2007. For comparative purposes, the fiscal year 2006 appropriation 
is $304,271,000 and the fiscal year 2007 budget estimate is 
$309,599,000.

    The Secret Service Investigations and Field Operations 
appropriation provides funds for domestic and international 
field operations; the enforcement of laws relating to 
obligations and securities of the United States and financial 
crimes, such as financial institutions and other fraud; and 
investigations involving missing and exploited children.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $304,205,000 for Investigations 
and Field Operations for fiscal year 2007.
    Due to fiscal constraints, the Service needs to prioritize 
and allocate sufficient resources for its required missions. 
Without adequate funding requested for the Service's Protection 
mission, the Committee recommendation includes reduced 
resources for Investigations and Field Operations. This is not 
a reflection of the importance of the investigative work, but 
instead is indicative of the severely restrictive budget 
climate. The Committee encourages the administration to submit 
a fiscal year 2008 budget that fully funds the Service's most 
critical needs, so that further funding reductions for its 
other missions will not be necessary in the future.
    National Center for Missing and Exploited Children 
[NCMEC].--The Committee provides $2,366,000 for the Service's 
forensic support costs in support of NCMEC, and provides 
$6,000,000, to remain available until expended, for a grant to 
NCMEC for activities related to investigations of exploited 
children.

     ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION, IMPROVEMENTS, AND RELATED EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................      $3,662,000

Committee recommendation................................       3,725,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    This appropriation provides funding for security upgrades 
of existing facilities; to continue development of the current 
Master Plan; to maintain and renovate existing facilities, 
including the James J. Rowley Training Center; and to ensure 
efficient and full utilization of the Center.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $3,725,000, as 
proposed in the budget, for acquisition, construction, 
improvements, repair and facilities improvement expenses of the 
Secret Service for fiscal year 2007.

                           SPECIAL EVENT FUND

Appropriations, 2006....................................................
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     $20,900,000
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................................

    The United States Secret Service [USSS] Special Event Fund 
will support activities that require Secret Service protection 
at special events (i.e., presidential campaigns and National 
Special Security Events). The USSS Special Event Fund provides 
funding for agent overtime and travel, specialized equipment, 
and other expenses related to these activities. Agent base 
salaries and benefits are provided by the ``Protection, 
Administration, and Training'' account.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommendation does not include $20,900,000 
for a separate Special Event Fund appropriation, as proposed in 
the budget. Funding is provided for these requested activities 
under the ``Protection, Administration, and Training'' account.

                               TITLE III

                       PREPAREDNESS AND RECOVERY

                              PREPAREDNESS

                                Summary

    The Preparedness Directorate is responsible for information 
flow between the Department and State and local governments, 
for State and local grant award functions, and for building and 
sustaining preparedness of the first responder community.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends total resources of $3,854,538,000. 
The Committee encourages the Department to continue to place 
emphasis on regional strategies to ensure that the Nation's 
communities are prepared, trained, and engaged in the event of 
a disaster. The Committee applauds the Department's efforts in 
the creation of the National Infrastructure Protection Plan 
[NIPP] and expects the Office for Domestic Preparedness [ODP] 
to operate critical infrastructure programs in a manner 
consistent with the NIPP. The Committee is frustrated that ODP, 
to date, has not issued the final National Preparedness Goal 
[NPG], as required in Public Law 109-90 by December 31, 2005. 
The Committee directs the Secretary to provide a report by 
February 8, 2007, explaining why NPG is delayed, when it will 
be published, and what substantive improvements have been made 
to NPG in the interim. The following table summarizes the 
Committee's recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 
and budget request levels:

    National Preparedness Integration Program [NPIP].--The 
Committee recommends $8,000,000, a decrease of $42,000,000 from 
the amount proposed in the budget, for the NPIP. The Committee 
remains concerned with the lack of an overall preparedness 
strategy. The absence of the overall analysis and action plan 
creates a situation where the Preparedness Directorate's 
funding decisions cannot be grounded in rational decision 
making or result in real advancement of the Nation's 
preparedness. The Committee supports the creation of the NPIP 
and expects the program to address these serious shortcomings. 
The Committee includes bill language requiring the submission 
of an expenditure plan for these resources.
    Further, the Committee notes resources proposed for NPIP 
have the potential to be operational in nature and should 
properly be provided instead to the appropriate program office, 
and coordinated through the NPIP. As an example, the NPIP 
proposal includes $2,150,000 for technical assistance to State, 
local and regional entities. A technical assistance program and 
a national exercise program are currently funded in the Office 
for Domestic Preparedness which should continue to have 
responsibility for the operations of those programs, while 
coordinating with the NPIP.
    The Committee is concerned NPIP has proposed to duplicate 
the efforts of the Federal Emergency Management Agency [FEMA] 
Regional Offices by creating Federal Preparedness Coordinators 
[FPCs] positions. The Department is directed to delay this 
program until the submission, by February 8, 2007, to the 
Committee of a strategic plan for the FPCs. The plan should 
include: a definition of the role of the FPCs within the 
Department; their role before, during, and after a disaster and 
how the role will not conflict with positions and 
responsibilities already in the Department, or with positions 
dictated by the National Response Plan; a description of the 
expected expertise and background of individuals who will be 
appointed as FPCs; and an expenditure plan for the resources to 
be devoted to FPCs. The plan should clearly explain the reason 
why the Department may select employees from within the 
Department, what role the individual served in prior to 
selection, and how the Department will ensure that FPC duties 
will not impact the employees non-FPC related duties. The 
Committee encourages the Department to consider those with 
strong management skills and disaster experience to be 
considered for FPCs and ensure FEMA has a role in the selection 
of FPCs.

    State and local programs provide grants for training, 
equipment (including interoperable communications equipment), 
exercises, and technical assistance to improve readiness for 
potential disasters.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $2,393,500,000 for State and Local 
Programs. The funds provided for State and local grants are to 
be used for purposes consistent with each State's homeland 
security strategy, including training and exercises; equipment, 
including interoperable communications equipment; and technical 
assistance; and may not be used for construction activities.
    State and local assistance is for strengthening ``first 
responders''--police, fire, rescue, emergency, medical and 
other personnel--who are first on scene in the event of a 
terrorist attack, natural disaster or other catastrophic event. 
For purposes of eligibility for funds under this heading, any 
county, city, village, town, district, borough, parish, port 
authority, transit authority, intercity rail provider, commuter 
rail system, freight rail provider, water district, regional 
planning commission, council of government, Indian tribe with 
jurisdiction over Indian country, authorized tribal 
organization, Alaska Native village, independent authority, 
special district, or other political subdivision of any State 
shall constitute a ``local unit of government.''
    The Committee expects ODP to continue all current overtime 
reimbursement practices. The Committee continues bill language 
prohibiting the use of funds for construction, except for Port 
Security, Rail and Transit Security, and the Buffer Zone 
Protection Plan grants. Bill language is included, however, to 
allow the State Homeland Security Grant Program [SHSGP], Law 
Enforcement Terrorism Prevention Program [LETPP], and Urban 
Area Security Initiative [UASI] grants to be used for minor 
perimeter security projects and minor construction or 
renovation of necessary guard facilities, fencing and related 
efforts, not to exceed $1,000,000 as deemed necessary by the 
Secretary. The Committee notes the installation of 
communication towers, which are included in a jurisdiction's 
interoperable communications plan, does not constitute 
construction.
    In addition, the Committee includes bill language requiring 
the Government Accountability Office [GAO] to review the 
validity, relevance, reliability, timeliness, and availability 
of the risk factors (including threat, vulnerability, and 
consequence), and the application of those factors in the 
allocation of funds provided to ODP, and to report to the 
Committee no later than 45 days after enactment of the act on 
the results of the review. The Department is required to 
provide GAO with the necessary information within 7 days after 
enactment of this act to ensure this review does not impact the 
allocation of grants to State and local entities.
    The Committee includes bill language allowing up to 3 
percent of the grant dollars to be used for administrative 
expenses.
    For SHSGP, LETPP, and UASI grants, application kits shall 
be made available within 45 days after the start of fiscal year 
2007. States shall have 90 days to apply after the grant is 
announced, and ODP shall act on an application within 90 days 
of its receipt. No less than 80 percent of these funds shall be 
allocated by the State to local units of government within 60 
days of the State receiving the funds. The Committee includes 
bill language reflecting Puerto Rico's unique governance 
status.
    The Committee is supportive of the Department's efforts to 
evaluate applications based on risk and effectiveness. The 
Department should continue its efforts to evaluate SHSGP, 
LETPP, and UASI applications based on how effectively these 
grants will address identified homeland security needs. In 
those areas of the country where the risk is very high, the 
Department shall work aggressively to ensure these applications 
are produced in a manner in which appropriate levels of funding 
reflects the level of threat. The Committee encourages ODP to 
review the guidance to States to make clear that the 
agriculture sector is included as a critical infrastructure 
sector.
    State and Local Assistance.--The Committee recommends 
$500,000,000 for SHSGP, and $350,000,000 for LETPP grants. All 
funds above the amount automatically allocated to States and 
territories (pursuant to section 1014 of Public Law 107-56) 
shall be allocated at the discretion of the Secretary of 
Homeland Security based on risks (as defined by threat, 
vulnerability, and consequences), and cooperation of multiple 
jurisdictions in preparing domestic preparedness plans.
    The Committee expects the Department to continue to work 
closely with States on the implementation of Homeland Security 
Presidential Directive-8 [HSPD-8] to ensure that rigorous 
analysis is used in determining and assessing the unmet 
capabilities of State and local jurisdictions.
    The Committee has learned that ODP intends to withhold 
homeland security grant funding from the State of Colorado 
pending resolution of an alleged disallowed expenditure of 
fiscal year 2004 grant money. The Committee encourages the 
Secretary to expedite the resolution of this action.
    Discretionary Grants.--The Committee recommends 
$745,000,000 for UASI grants. The Committee is concerned with 
the administration of the funds available to assist those 
communities most at risk in the United States. The continued 
expansion of the cities eligible for this funding has the 
impact of diluting the resources made available, and short-
changing those communities with the most serious quantifiable 
threat. The Committee believes the Department achieved a more 
optimal distribution of funds in earlier years of the program.
    In fiscal year 2006, $25,000,000 was provided until 
expended for grants to tax exempt organizations determined by 
the Secretary to be at high risk of international attacks. As 
of May 31, 2006, no determinations have been made and these 
funds continue to be available for this purpose.
    The Committee provides $427,000,000 for discretionary 
transportation and infrastructure grants. Of the total 
provided: $210,000,000 is for port security grants; 
$150,000,000 is for rail and transit security grants; 
$50,000,000 is for BZPP grants; $12,000,000 is for intercity 
bus security grants for the improvement of ticket 
identification, the installation of driver shields, the 
enhancement of emergency communications, enhancement of 
facility security, and further implementation of passenger 
screening; and $5,000,000 is for trucking industry security 
grants to continue the Highway Watch Grant program. Port 
security grants are pursuant to 46 United States Code 70107(a) 
through (h), which shall be awarded based on risk 
notwithstanding subsection (a), for eligible costs as defined 
in subsections (b)(2), (3), and (4). The Committee expects the 
Transportation Security Administration and Infrastructure 
Protection and Information Security to retain operational 
subject matter expertise and be fully engaged in the 
determination of grant awards. In addition, BZPP grants shall 
not be available for protection of establishments that are the 
responsibility of the Federal Government.
    Commercial Equipment Direct Assistance Program [CEDAP].--
The Committee provides $40,000,000 for CEDAP. The Committee 
directs the Department to award funding through CEDAP only if 
projects or equipment are consistent with State Homeland 
Security Strategies and the unmet essential capabilities 
identified through HSPD-8.
    National Programs.--Included in the amount recommended is 
$331,500,000 for national programs. This amount includes 
$11,500,000 for technical assistance; $145,000,000 for the 
existing members of the National Domestic Preparedness 
Consortium, to be distributed consistent with the fiscal year 
2006 allocation; $20,000,000 for Citizen Corps; $50,000,000 for 
exercises; $35,000,000 for the Metropolitan Medical Response 
System; $25,000,000 for demonstration training grants; 
$30,000,000 for continuing training grants; and $15,000,000 for 
evaluations and assessments.
    National Domestic Preparedness Consortium [NDPC].--The 
Committee directs ODP to prepare a long-range strategic plan 
for NDPC. This plan should incorporate the input of each of the 
existing Consortium members and shall be submitted to the 
Committee on February 8, 2007. The plan shall include, but not 
be limited to, projected future training demand, capacity, and 
performance measures for each Consortium member and the 
Consortium as a whole. The report shall also include 
recommendations, if any, for the possible expansion of the 
program. The Committee is aware of proposals to expand the 
program to include emergency preparedness within the railroad 
and mass transit environment and to reduce the risks associated 
with natural disasters. The NDPC program is authorized by 
Public Law 107-273, section 5002.
    Demonstration Training Grants.--The Committee provides 
$25,000,000 for demonstration training grants. The Committee 
expects this to continue to be a peer-reviewed competitive 
grant program.
    Continuing Training Grants.--The Committee provides 
$30,000,000 for continuing training grants. The Committee is 
supportive of programs which consistently deliver homeland 
security curricula in the form of executive education programs 
for State Governors and other leaders and accredited Masters 
Degree education.
    Emergency Medical Services.--The Committee is concerned 
Emergency Medical Services [EMS] is not considered an equal 
player among the first responder community and encourages the 
Department to require States to include EMS representatives in 
State planning efforts. The Committee encourages the 
Department, States, and local governments to support efforts by 
community colleges in the training of first responders, 
including the use of simulation laboratory centers and cross 
discipline response training.
    Interoperable Communications.--The Committee continues its 
direction that before grant dollars can be obligated by 
grantees for interoperable communications equipment, 
jurisdictions must certify to ODP that they have an 
implementation plan that includes the following: governance 
structures, policies, procedures, training, and planned 
exercises.
    Eligibility.--The Committee urges the Department to work 
with State and local governments to ensure regional 
authorities, such as port, transit, or tribal authorities, are 
given due consideration in the distribution of State formula 
grants.
    Mass Evacuation.--The Committee is deeply disappointed in 
the actions taken by the Department to combine the reporting 
requirements of this Committee with other reports, and then 
release the results of those reports publicly, prior to 
submission to the Committee. Reports to the Committee are not 
expected to be turned into publicity events again in the 
future.
    The Preparedness Directorate is to brief the Committee, 45 
days after the date of enactment of this act, and quarterly 
thereafter, on the progress made to implement each of the 
conclusions of the June 16, 2006, Nationwide Plan Review Phase 
2 Report. The first briefing is to include a detailed timeline 
for the completion of implementing each conclusion with major 
milestones and how the implementation of the conclusions are 
being coordinated with the guidelines developed by the 
Department for State and local governments as required in 
Public Law 109-90. The Department is encouraged to consider the 
need for mass evacuation planning and pre-positioning of 
equipment for mass evacuations in allocating first responder 
funds.
    The Committee directs the Department to work with all 
stakeholders, including the congressional committees of 
jurisdiction, and representatives of special-needs populations, 
including elderly, disabled, low-income and others, to resolve 
the findings of the Nationwide Plan Review Phase 2 by 
implementing solutions, developing registries, promoting 
demonstration projects, and maximizing policy coordinators at 
the Federal, State, and local level that address the unique 
needs of these communities.
    Use of Funds.--The Department is to submit a report to the 
Committee by February 8, 2007, detailing what State and local 
governments have purchased with fiscal year 2006 homeland 
security State and local assistance grants; whether these 
expenditures have complied with State homeland security plans; 
and how homeland security has been enhanced by such 
expenditures.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 and budget 
request levels:

                     FIREFIGHTER ASSISTANCE GRANTS

Appropriations, 2006....................................    $648,450,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     293,450,000
House allowance.........................................     655,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     655,000,000

    Firefighter assistance grants, as authorized by section 33 
of the Federal Fire Prevention and Control Act of 1974 (15 
U.S.C. 2229), assist local fire fighting departments for the 
purpose of protecting the health and safety of the public and 
fire fighting personnel, including volunteers and emergency 
medical service personnel, against fire and fire-related 
hazards.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $655,000,000 for firefighter 
assistance grants, of which $115,000,000 is available for 
firefighter staffing grants, to remain available until 
September 30, 2007.
    The Committee directs the Department to favor those grant 
applications that take a regional approach in equipment 
purchases and their future deployment.
    The Committee directs the Department to continue the 
present practice of funding applications according to local 
priorities and those established by the United States Fire 
Administration; and to make $3,000,000 available for 
implementation of section 205(c) of Public Law 108-169 to the 
same grant applicants as in fiscal year 2005.
    The Committee further directs the Department to continue 
direct funding to fire departments and the peer review process. 
Not to exceed 5 percent of grant funds may be for program 
administration.

                EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PERFORMANCE GRANTS

Appropriations, 2006....................................    $183,150,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................         ( \1\ )
House allowance.........................................     186,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     205,000,000

\1\ Budget proposes $170,000,000 under the State Homeland Security Grant 
Program.

    Funding requested in this account provides support to the 
Nation's all-hazards emergency management system and helps to 
build State and local emergency management capability.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $205,000,000 for emergency 
management performance grants [EMPG], an increase of 
$21,850,000 from the fiscal year 2006 level.
    EMPG is an essential source of funding for State and local 
emergency management. State and local governments currently 
have productive relationships with the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency's regional emergency managers that are 
critical to maintain an all-hazards response capability. The 
Committee expects these relationships to continue.
    The Committee is concerned by the President's request for 
only $170,000,000 for the EMPG program. Additional Federal 
funding is necessary to properly support State and local 
responsibilities and coordinate with Federal emergency 
management during national disasters. The Committee directs the 
Office for Domestic Preparedness to retain EMPG as a separate 
grant program, not combine its funding with any other grant 
allocation or application process, and continue funding 
personnel expenses. Not to exceed 3 percent of grant funds may 
be for administrative expenses.

              RADIOLOGICAL EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PROGRAM

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................     -$1,266,000
Budget estimate, 2007 \1\...............................        -477,000
House allowance \1\.....................................        -477,000
Committee recommendation \1\............................        -477,000

\1\ Fee collections are estimated to exceed costs.

    The Radiological Emergency Preparedness [REP] program 
assists State and local governments in the development of off-
site radiological emergency preparedness plans within the 
emergency planning zones of commercial nuclear power facilities 
licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission [NRC]. The fund 
is financed from fees assessed and collected from the NRC 
licensees to recover the amounts anticipated to be obligated in 
the next fiscal year for expenses related to REP program 
activities.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides for the receipt and expenditure of 
fees collected, as authorized by Public Law 105-276. The budget 
estimates fee collections to exceed expenditures by $477,000 in 
fiscal year 2007.

             UNITED STATES FIRE ADMINISTRATION AND TRAINING

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $44,499,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      46,849,000
House allowance.........................................      46,849,000
Committee recommendation................................      45,887,000

    The mission of the United States Fire Administration [USFA] 
is to reduce losses, both economic and human, due to fire and 
other emergencies through training, research, coordination and 
support. USFA also prepares the Nation's first responder and 
health care leaders through ongoing, and when necessary, 
expedited training regarding how to evaluate and minimize 
community risk, improve protection to critical infrastructure, 
and be better prepared to react to all-hazard and terrorism 
emergencies.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $45,887,000 for the United States 
Fire Administration, of which $5,000,000 is for training.

Nation's critical infrastructure assets. In addition, IPIS 
works collaboratively with public, private, and international 
entities to secure cyberspace and U.S. cyber assets, and reduce 
the vulnerability of the Nation's telecommunications and 
information technology infrastructures.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends total appropriations of 
$525,056,000 for Infrastructure Protection and Information 
Security [IPIS] programs. The Committee includes bill language 
directing the Secretary to submit to the Committee the report 
required in the statement of the managers (House Report 109-
241) accompanying Public Law 109-90 on resources necessary to 
implement mandatory security requirements for the Nation's

    Critical Infrastructure Outreach and Partnerships.--The 
Committee recommends $104,600,000 for Critical Infrastructure 
Outreach and Partnerships. Of the funds recommended, the 
Committee provides $8,500,000, $3,500,000 above the amount 
provided in fiscal year 2006, to accelerate the deployment of 
the Homeland Security Information Network, Critical Sector 
[HSIN-CS]. The acceleration of HSIN-CS will allow this critical 
information sharing portal to be deployed to Critical 
Infrastructure and Key Resource sectors. In addition, this will 
allow the enhancement of security features required to share 
sensitive information, the improvement of crisis coordination 
tools, and expansion of content beyond threat to include all 
hazards.
    National Infrastructure Simulation and Analysis Center 
[NISAC].--The Committee recommends $25,000,000, an increase of 
$8,979,000 from the budget request, for National Infrastructure 
Simulation and Analysis Center. The Committee expects Sandia 
and Los Alamos National Laboratories to continue to develop 
NISAC and to be the lead entities in this initiative to secure 
the Nation's critical infrastructure.
    Protective Actions.--Committee recommends $32,043,000, as 
proposed in the budget, for Protective Actions. The Committee 
recognizes the need for an enhanced and coordinated national 
bombing prevention effort. The Committee directs the Risk 
Management Division, Office for Bombing Prevention, to 
coordinate national and intergovernmental bombing prevention 
activities; support the Federal Improvised Explosive Device 
Working Group; conduct requirements, capabilities, and gap 
analyses; assist State and local officials in developing multi-
jurisdictional bombing prevention plans; operate and maintain 
an information portal for bomb technicians to share critical 
information and lessons learned; promote other information 
sharing and bombing prevention awareness programs; liaison with 
the Department of Defense Joint Improvised Explosive Device 
Defeat Organization; and work cooperatively with Science and 
Technology on the development and implementation of national 
explosive detection canine training and certification 
standards. The Committee further directs the Secretary to 
develop and submit to the Committee by February 8, 2007, a 
National strategy for bombing prevention. This strategy should 
include a review of existing Federal, State, and local efforts 
in this area.
    Cyber Security.--The Committee recommends $82,350,000, a 
decrease of $9,955,000 from the budget request, for Cyber 
Security. Within the amount provided, $11,700,000 is included 
to continue the National Cyber Security Division's Cyber 
Security and Information Sharing Initiative. These funds will 
expand the current cooperative partnership. The Committee 
applauds this partnership designed to strengthen homeland 
security through targeted research, education, and outreach 
programs that focus on critical cyber security issues, 
including emergency preparedness and response technologies. 
This funding will also identify and address critical research 
challenges in information security, and help build a proactive 
community of researchers focused on cyber security as an 
integrated component of infrastructure protection. The funding 
will foster trusted partnerships between industry and 
government, and enable collaborative programs that build links 
between stakeholders who currently have limited mechanisms and 
processes to effectively and efficiently exchange information 
security ideas and best practices across sectors.
    The Committee directs the Under Secretary for Preparedness 
to request the State Homeland Security Directors to jointly 
develop with the State Chief Information Officers a State cyber 
security strategy for critical information and communications 
technology systems and assets needed to support State and local 
government services as identified in Homeland Security 
Presidential Directive 7 [HSPD-7]. The Under Secretary should 
encourage States to consider risk and needs assessments which 
account for the multitude of threats relevant to cyber systems; 
and encourage information sharing between State Homeland 
Security Directors, State Chief Information Officers and the 
Department to develop and promulgate a consistent methodology 
for developing such strategies. The Under Secretary should also 
institutionalize a routine systematic review of such 
strategies.
    National Security Emergency Preparedness 
Telecommunications.--The Committee recommends $122,521,000, for 
National Security Emergency Preparedness Telecommunications.

                  FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY


                                Summary

    The mission of Federal Emergency Management Agency [FEMA] 
is to lead the Nation to prepare for, mitigate the effects of, 
respond to, and recover from major domestic disasters, both 
natural and man-made, including incidents of terrorism.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends a total program level of 
$2,664,381,000 for activities of FEMA for fiscal year 2007. The 
following table summarizes the Committee's recommendations as 
compared to the fiscal year 2006 and budget request levels:

    All-Hazards Strategy.--The Inspector General report ``A 
Performance Review of FEMA's Disaster Management Activities in 
Response to Hurricane Katrina'', March 2006, states 
``coordination and consultation among the Department of 
Homeland Security components with States is essential to guide, 
advise, develop, and monitor all-hazards capability and 
responder effectiveness''. The Committee directs the Secretary 
to provide quarterly briefings to the Committee on the joint 
efforts of the Preparedness Directorate and Director of FEMA to 
connect the Federal Government's all-hazards strategy for 
preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery from natural or 
man-made disasters with State plans.
    Assessing Emergency Response.--The Committee is interested 
in a review of the Department's overall organizational 
structure as it relates to preparedness, readiness, mitigation, 
emergency response and recovery and the pros and cons of these 
functions being separated among components of the Department. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Secretary of Homeland 
Security to use the section 504 authority in Public Law 108-334 
to provide $750,000 for the purpose of contracting with the 
National Academy of Public Administration for such a review. 
This notification is to be submitted to the Committee within 30 
days from the date of enactment of this act.

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148. 
Excludes $17,200,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations pursuant 
to Public Law 109-148, and $71,800,000 in emergency supplemental 
appropriations pursuant to Public Law 109-234.

    Administrative and Regional Operations [ARO] supports the 
Director of FEMA and his managers by coordinating between 
headquarters and Regional offices all policy, managerial, 
resource and administrative actions. Funds are used for 
salaries, travel, rental payment to GSA, and purchases of 
supplies and equipment. ARO activities include maintaining 
programs to address public information issues and building 
partnerships with and among State and local governments, non-
governmental organizations, business, and industry.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides $249,499,000 for administrative and 
regional operations.
    Workforce Capacity.--The Committee is concerned with FEMA's 
failure to meet its hiring goal of hiring 90 percent of vacant 
positions in 90 days, despite extending the deadline to the 
beginning of the 2006 hurricane season. FEMA's inability to 
fill these vacant positions will only continue to cause stress 
on daily operations and hinder any effective response FEMA may 
have to disasters. To compound the problem, FEMA is also facing 
the fact approximately 50 percent of its workforce will be 
eligible for retirement over the next 5 years. The Committee 
directs the Director of FEMA to develop a 5-year comprehensive 
workforce strategy, including hiring goals for vacant positions 
and retention initiatives for maintaining current staffing 
level and brief the Committee no later than 60 days after 
enactment of this act.

    This appropriation funds the operating expenses to prepare 
for, mitigate against, respond to and recover from emergencies 
and disasters.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides $240,000,000 to support activities 
related to readiness, mitigation, response, and recovery 
[RMRR].
    Urban Search and Rescue.--Included in the Committee 
recommendation is $30,000,000, an increase of $10,200,000 from 
the budget request, to support the 28 existing Urban Search and 
Rescue [USAR] teams, of which no more than $1,600,000 shall be 
used to administer, support, and train task forces. For the 
first time, all 28 USAR teams were deployed over a 5-week 
period as part of the Department's response to Hurricane 
Katrina. The Committee understands these teams were involved 
with rescuing 6,500 people in the Gulf Coast region. The 
Committee commends the teams for quickly setting up operations 
in the Gulf Coast region and effectively collaborating with the 
United States Coast Guard.
    Pre-positioning Essential Items/Equipment.--The Committee 
remains concerned with FEMA's plan for pre-positioning 
essential items, such as Meals-Ready-to-Eat [MRE] and satellite 
communications, in strategic locations across the Nation. The 
Department is expected to brief the Committee, no later than 30 
days after the enactment of this act, on its plan for pre-
positioning essential items. The Committee understands many 
States have proposed to included MRE rations as part of their 
Urban Area Security Initiative Funding but have been denied the 
request. The Committee encourages the Department to reexamine 
the Authorized Equipment List for these grants in order to 
determine if MREs are eligible for this funding.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2006 and budget 
request levels.

                         Public Health Programs

Budget estimate, 2007...................................      33,885,000
House allowance.........................................      33,885,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    This appropriation funds the National Disaster Medical 
System which is a cooperative asset-sharing program among 
Federal departments, agencies, States, local governments, 
private businesses, and civilian volunteers that augments the 
Nation's emergency medical response capability. The program 
supports specialty medical teams to supplement emergency 
response capability, maintains an inventory of available 
hospital beds, and manages transportation of mass casualties to 
long-term care facilities.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides $33,885,000 for public health 
programs to fund the National Disaster Medical System, as 
proposed in the budget.
    The Committee includes bill language which transfers all 
the funding, components, and functions of the National Disaster 
Medical System [NDMS] to the Department of Health and Human 
Service [HHS], effective January 1, 2007. The Committee directs 
the Secretary of Homeland Security to work with the Secretary 
of HHS to review the NDMS mission and infrastructure and 
develop a transfer plan, which maintains its operational 
capacity and which utilizes the most effective mechanisms to 
ensure a complete transfer of NDMS.

                            Disaster Relief

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................  $1,752,300,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................   1,941,390,000
House allowance.........................................   1,676,891,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,640,000,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148. 
Excludes a rescission of $23,409,300,000 in emergency funding in Public 
Law 109-148, and $6,000,000,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations 
pursuant to Public Law 109-234.

    Through the Disaster Relief Fund [DRF], the Department of 
Homeland Security provides a significant portion of the total 
Federal response to victims in Presidentially-declared major 
disasters and emergencies. Major disasters are declared when a 
State requests Federal assistance and proves that a given 
disaster is beyond the local and State capacity to respond. 
Under the DRF, FEMA will continue to operate the primary 
assistance programs, including Federal assistance to 
individuals and households; and public assistance, which 
includes the repair and reconstruction of State, local, and 
nonprofit infrastructure. The post-disaster hazard mitigation 
set-aside to States, as part of the DRF, works as a companion 
piece to the National Pre-Disaster Mitigation Fund.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $1,640,000,000 for disaster 
relief.
    Waste, Fraud and Abuse.--The Committee remains concerned 
with FEMA's lack of internal controls for combating waste, 
fraud and abuse. On June 14, 2006, GAO testified it found FEMA 
made improper or potentially fraudulent payments to individuals 
with invalid registrations for disaster assistance for 
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which has cost the taxpayers from 
$600,000,000 up to $1,400,000,000. This is outrageous since 
this is not the first time GAO has uncovered issues with 
fraudulent payments. It is critical FEMA correct weaknesses in 
the disaster assistance claims system as quickly as possible. 
The Committee expects the Director of FEMA to brief the 
Committee, no later than 180 days after the date of the 
enactment of this Act, on a corrective action plan for this 
system, which includes an implementation schedule for each 
action and description of the performance measures utilized in 
each corrective action.

            Disaster Assistance Direct Loan Program Account

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................        $561,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................         569,000
House allowance.........................................         569,000
Committee recommendation................................         569,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148. 
Excludes $279,800,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations pursuant 
to Public Law 109-234.

    Disaster assistance loans authorized by the Robert T. 
Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 
U.S.C. 5162) are loans to States for the non-Federal portion of 
cost sharing funds, and community disaster loans to local 
governments incurring a substantial loss of tax and other 
revenues as a result of a major disaster. The funds requested 
for this program include direct loans and a subsidy based on 
criteria including loan amount and interest charged. As 
required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990 (2 U.S.C. 661 
et seq.), this account records, for this program, the subsidy 
costs associated with the direct loans obligated in 1992 and 
beyond (including modifications of direct loans), as well as 
administrative expenses of the program. The subsidy amounts are 
estimated on a present value basis; the administrative expenses 
are estimated on a cash basis.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $569,000, as proposed in the 
budget, in subsidy costs for disaster assistance direct loans. 
Bill language is included directing the gross obligations for 
the principal amount of direct loans to not exceed $25,000,000.

                      Flood Map Modernization Fund

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................    $198,000,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     198,980,000
House allowance.........................................     198,980,000
Committee recommendation................................     198,980,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    This appropriation supports the functions necessary to 
modernize and digitize flood maps. The flood maps are used to 
determine appropriate risk-based premium rates for the National 
Flood Insurance Program, complete flood hazard determinations 
required of the Nation's lending institutions, and to develop 
appropriate disaster response plans for Federal, State, and 
local emergency management personnel.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $198,980,000, as proposed in the 
budget, for the Flood Map Modernization Fund and includes 
language in the bill which provides up to 3 percent of the 
funds may be made available for administrative purposes.

                     National Flood Insurance Fund

Appropriations, 2006 \1\ \2\............................    $133,995,000
Budget estimate, 2007 \1\...............................     128,588,000
House allowance \1\.....................................     128,588,000
Committee recommendation \1\............................     128,588,000

\1\ Fully offset by fee collections.
\2\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    The National Flood Insurance Fund is a fee-generated fund 
which provides funding for the National Flood Insurance 
Program. This program enables property owners to purchase flood 
insurance otherwise unavailable in the commercial market. The 
National Flood Insurance Act of 1968 authorizes the Federal 
Government to provide flood insurance on a national basis. This 
insurance is available to communities which enact and enforce 
appropriate floodplain management measures and covers virtually 
all types of buildings and their contents up to $350,000 for 
residential types and $1,000,000 for all other types.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $128,588,000, as proposed in the 
budget, for the National Flood Insurance Fund and provides up 
to $31,000,000 may be transferred to the National Flood 
Mitigation Fund for expenses under section 1366 of the National 
Flood Insurance Act (42 U.S.C. 4104c).

                     National Flood Mitigation Fund

Appropriations, 2006 \1\ \2\............................     $40,000,000
Budget estimate, 2007 \1\...............................      31,000,000
House allowance \1\.....................................      31,000,000
Committee recommendation \1\............................      31,000,000

\1\ By transfer from the National Flood Insurance Fund.
\2\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    The National Flood Mitigation Fund [NFMF] receives funding 
from a fee-generated discretionary fund transferred from the 
National Flood Insurance Fund. NFMF provides assistance 
planning to States and communities for implementing floodplain 
management measures to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk 
of flood damage to buildings and other structures eligible for 
insurance under the National Flood Insurance Program.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides for the transfer of up to 
$31,000,000, as proposed in the budget, from the National Flood 
Insurance Fund to this account.

                 National Pre-Disaster Mitigation Fund

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................     $49,500,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     149,978,000
House allowance.........................................     100,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     149,978,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    This Pre-Disaster Mitigation [PDM] program provides grants 
to States, communities, territories, Indian tribal governments 
for hazard mitigation planning and implementing mitigation 
projects prior to a disaster event. PDM grants are awarded on a 
competitive basis. This program operates independent of the 
Hazard Mitigation Grant Program funded through the Disaster 
Relief Fund, which provides grants to a State in which a 
disaster had been declared.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $149,978,000, as proposed in the 
budget, for the National Pre-Disaster Mitigation Fund.

of fee revenue will be used to support modernization of CIS 
processes and systems to improve sharing of immigration 
information and eliminate paper-based processing.
    Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements [SAVE].--
Included in the amount recommended by the Committee is an 
increase of $24,500,000, 197 positions, and 197 full-time 
equivalents [FTEs], as proposed in the budget, to provide 
directly appropriated funding for the base operations and 
expansion of the SAVE program. The funding is distributed as 
follows: $17,100,000 for base operations; $4,000,000 to expand 
the program for the requirements of the REAL ID Act of 2005; 
and $3,400,000 to continue to support the Employment 
Eligibility Verification program.
    Employment Eligibility Verification [EEV].--Included in the 
amount recommended by the Committee is an increase of 
$110,490,000, 315 positions, and 168 FTEs, as proposed in the 
budget, to provide directly appropriated funding for the 
expansion and base operations of the EEV program. The funding 
is distributed as follows: $11,700,000 for program 
administration; $49,900,000 for program operations; $46,490,000 
for systems enhancements; and $2,400,000 for outreach.
    Backlog Elimination.--The Committee directs CIS to continue 
to report quarterly on the status of application processing and 
the backlog reduction plan.
    The Committee is aware of the additional cost burdens 
placed on the CIS budget for employees traveling to remote 
areas in Alaska and Hawaii. The Committee directs the 
Department to take this into consideration when allocating 
travel funds to these States.

                         Science and Technology


                                SUMMARY

    The mission of Science and Technology [S&T;] is to conduct, 
stimulate, and enable homeland security research, development, 
testing and to facilitate the timely transition of capabilities 
to Federal, State, local, and tribal end-users.

                     MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION

Appropriations, 2006 \1\................................     $80,288,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     195,901,000
House allowance.........................................     180,901,000
Committee recommendation................................     106,414,000

\1\ Includes a 1 percent rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-148.

    The Management and Administration account funds salaries 
and expenses related to the Office of the Under Secretary for 
Science and Technology, and headquarters and field operations, 
including the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures 
Center [NBACC], Plum Island, and the Environmental Measurements 
Laboratory.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $106,414,000 for management and 
administration of programs and activities carried out by 
Science and Technology [S&T;].
    The Committee provides $6,414,000 for the immediate Office 
of the Under Secretary and $100,000,000 for salaries and 
expenses for managing and administering S&T; portfolios. The 
Committee does not include $10,000,000, as proposed in the 
budget, for salaries and expenses associated with the 
Transportation Security Lab [TSL]. The Committee includes bill 
language indicating $60,000,000 is not available for obligation 
until the Secretary submits, for advance approval by the 
Committee, an expenditure plan, reviewed by the General 
Accountability Office, detailing all S&T;'s expenses.
    National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility [NBAF].--The 
Committee encourages the Department to continue to work with 
the United States Department of Agriculture, the United States 
Department of Health and Human Services, and other Federal 
agencies to continue and complete site selection and 
architecture and engineering processes for the NBAF. This 
facility is critically important to the Nation's biological and 
agricultural threat preparedness and response efforts. To 
continue and complete site selection and the architecture and 
engineering process for the NBAF, $23,000,000 is included in 
the Committee's recommendation for fiscal year 2007. This 
funding, in conjunction with the $23,000,000 provided in fiscal 
year 2006 under the ``Research, Development, Acquisition, and 
Operations'' account, meets a 10 percent threshold typically 
required to complete the architecture and engineering phase for 
large-scale projects. The Committee expects construction 
funding for the project to be included in the President's 
budget for fiscal year 2008. The Department is to submit a 
project schedule, including expected completion dates and 
funding requirements for all phases of the project, to the 
Committee within 30 days after the date of enactment of this 
act.
    Research Plan.--The Committee is extremely disappointed 
with the manner in which S&T; is being managed within the 
Department of Homeland Security. Despite the efforts of the 
Acting head of S&T;, this component is a rudderless ship without 
a clear way to get back on course. The Committee directs the 
Secretary to immediately develop a 5-year research plan, 
including performance measures, which reflect DHS's research 
and funding priorities, and brief the Committee no later than 
60 days after the date of enactment of this act. Developing and 
implementing this 5-year plan is the only way S&T; will be 
successful.
    Budget Submission.--The Committee is extremely disappointed 
with the fiscal year 2007 President's budget submission and 
accompanying Department congressional justification material. 
The Committee recognizes S&T; was in transition when the budget 
was submitted to Congress but not being able to clearly 
articulate and justify the funding request is simply 
unacceptable.
    Administrative Costs.--The Committee was dismayed to 
discover S&T;'s assessment of operating costs for each 
portfolio. In fiscal year 2006, operating costs were charged 
based on random percentages which have not been justified to 
the Committee. The Committee includes bill language to ensure 
no funding will be transferred from the ``Research, 
Development, Acquisition, and Operations'' account to the 
``Management and Administration'' account for operating 
expenses or overhead costs. Further, the Committee expects S&T; 
will not utilize reimbursable agreements between these accounts 
to recoup administrative costs.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations for the management and administration of 
science and technology activities as compared to the fiscal 
year 2006 and budget request levels:

  Administration ``Transportation Security Support'' account.

    Biological Countermeasures.--The Committee provides 
$327,200,000 for the deployment of effective measures to deter, 
detect, and mitigate acts of biological terrorism against the 
United States. The Committee includes $82,800,000 for the 
BioWatch program.
    Chemical Countermeasures.--The Committee provides 
$75,000,000 for the deployment of effective measures to 
prevent, protect from, respond to, and recover from chemical 
threats against the United States. Included in this amount is 
$45,000,000 for chemical detection and $15,000,000 for response 
and recovery.
    Domestic Nuclear Detection Office [DNDO].--The Committee 
provides separate appropriations for DNDO, as proposed in the 
budget. The Committee directs S&T; to continue to work with DNDO 
on radiological and nuclear research efforts in order to reduce 
the risk of duplicative research efforts.
    Explosives Countermeasures.--The Committee provides 
$5,000,000 for S&T;'s explosives countermeasures portfolio. The 
Committee recommends $81,582,000 for the Transportation 
Security Lab [TSL] in the Transportation Security 
Administration [TSA] ``Transportation Security Support'' 
account. The Committee has repeatedly requested a breakout of 
funding for this portfolio for fiscal years 2006 and 2007 which 
S&T; has failed to provide. The Committee is also aware S&T; and 
TSA have not come to agreement on the research priorities for 
this portfolio. Given these issues, the Committee believes TSL 
would be better managed by TSA.
    Threat and Vulnerability, Testing and Assessment.--The 
Committee provides $35,000,000 for developing information about 
terrorist capabilities, intent, and motivation and provides 
advanced information processing tools necessary to rapidly and 
accurately discover, use, and share such information. The 
Committee notes the Social and Behavioral Sciences Partnership 
program provides expertise in developing effective counter-
terrorism technology and systems. The Committee encourages S&T; 
to integrate this expertise across all departmental components.
    Conventional Missions in Support of the Department of 
Homeland Security.--The Committee provides $80,000,000 for 
research, development, and related activities to support 
conventional missions of the Department. The amount recommended 
includes funding at the fiscal year 2006 level for the 
continuation of the regional research program designed to 
provide technical and analytical support for State, local and 
private entities. The Committee expects S&T; to continue 
utilizing national laboratories for this purpose, along with 
other existing technical and analytical infrastructure in the 
region. The Committee encourages S&T; to continue funding 
technology which enables users to collect and analyze real-time 
surveillance data to detect suspicious activities in the 
vicinity of critical ports and infrastructure.
    Tunnel Detection.--The Committee directs the Under 
Secretary to brief the Committee, no later than January 10, 
2007, on the technologies being researched and developed to 
detect and prevent illegal entry into the United States via 
tunnels.
    Operation Safe Commerce [OSC].--Over $72,000,000 has been 
obligated for pilot projects to test innovative ways to track 
and protect cargo entering the United States from all over the 
world. The Committee recently discovered the results of the OSC 
pilots have not been used by S&T; in the development of 
container security devices and supply chain security 
architecture. The Committee directs S&T; to work closely with 
the Office for Domestic Preparedness to review each OSC pilot 
and to incorporate lessons learned from those projects into the 
S&T; cargo security program.
    Standards.--The Committee provides $27,131,000 for the 
development of reliable and verifiable standards for the 
effectiveness of scientific and technological tools critical 
for homeland security. The Committee is pleased S&T; is 
collaborating with the National Institute of Standards and 
Technology [NIST]. The expertise NIST provides is critical for 
the development of credible standards. The Committee supports 
the need for standards for first responder equipment and 
technologies. The Committee includes $1,000,000 for standards 
for advance firefighter technologies.
    Critical Infrastructure Protection.--The Committee provides 
$12,500,000 for developing and deploying tools to anticipate, 
identify, and analyze risks, and systems to reduce risks of 
interruption to the Nation's critical infrastructure. The 
Committee includes $5,000,000 for modeling and simulation. The 
Committee does not continue funding for community based 
critical infrastructure protection efforts, as proposed in the 
budget.
    University Programs/Homeland Security Fellowship 
Programs.--The Committee provides $50,000,000 for developing 
the scientific research foundation essential for advancing 
knowledge in homeland security fields and enhancing technical 
expertise in order to address current and future challenges in 
protecting the homeland. The Committee encourages S&T; to 
consider all colleges and universities meeting the requirements 
of 6 U.S.C. 188 in the selection process of university-based 
centers.
    The University program has the potential to facilitate 
cutting-edge research on homeland security issues. The 
Committee encourages S&T; to solicit a wide variety of research 
projects from the plethora of universities engaged in homeland 
security research. The Committee includes bill language making 
no university participating in the University-Based Centers of 
Excellence Program eligible to receive a grant award for a 
period in excess of 3 years.
    Emergent and Prototypical Technology.--The Committee 
provides $12,500,000 for a new portfolio which combines the 
former Emerging Threat and Rapid Prototypical portfolios, as 
proposed in the budget. The Committee includes $5,000,000 for 
emergent threats and, as proposed in the budget, $7,500,000 for 
rapid prototyping.
    Counter Man-Portable Air Defense Systems [MANPADS].--The 
Committee provides $40,000,000 for demonstrating the viability, 
economic costs, and effectiveness of adapting existing military 
technology to protect commercial aircraft from threat of 
MANPADS. The Committee was extremely disappointed to learn 
$18,608,000 of the increase provided in fiscal year 2006 was 
set aside for management and administrative costs of the entire 
S&T.; This was not the Committee's intention for the additional 
funding and expects S&T; to spend the $18,608,000 recommended 
and any unobligated program balances in fiscal year 2006 solely 
on the program.
    The Committee is encouraged by recent system performance 
testing which demonstrates technical effectiveness of the 
capability against probable threats to commercial aircraft. 
Despite these results, questions remain on the overall impact 
on the commercial airline industry. The Committee provides 
$35,000,000 for a comprehensive passenger aircraft suitability 
assessment. The Committee urges S&T; to include the passenger 
airline industry in the evaluation phase of this assessment.
    Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies 
[SAFETY] Act.--The Committee provides $4,710,000, as proposed 
by the budget, for evaluation of anti-terrorism technologies in 
accordance with the criteria set forth in the SAFETY Act of 
2002 and the Interim Regulations.
    Cyber Security.--The Committee provides $18,000,000 for the 
development of a new generation of cyber security technologies; 
for increased security of information and information systems; 
and for the development of tools used to develop more secure 
systems. The Committee includes $7,000,000 for next generation 
technology and $6,000,000 for information infrastructure 
security.
    Office for Interoperability and Compatibility [OIC].--The 
Committee provides $25,000,000 for OIC's mission to strengthen 
and integrate interoperability and compatibility efforts in 
order to improve Federal, State, local and tribal, public 
safety preparedness and response to natural or manmade 
disasters. Federal funding for first responder communication 
equipment should be compliant with Project 25 standards where 
necessary. The Committee directs the Under Secretary of Science 
and Technology, in conjunction with the Director of the 
National Institute of Standards and Technology, to establish a 
program to assess the compliance of first responder 
communication equipment.
    Pacific Northwest National Laboratory [PNNL].--The 
Committee understands the Department is working with the 
Department of Energy to construct radiological laboratories at 
PNNL in order to provide leading-edge capabilities to deal with 
emerging threats from radiological sources. The Committee is 
disappointed the Department has proposed no funding for this 
project in fiscal year 2007 and expects funding to be proposed 
in fiscal year 2008. The Committee expects the budget 
justification to include an estimate of the cost of the entire 
project, why the project is necessary, and the time line for 
its completion.

  included in DHS Science and Technology Appropriations.

    Interagency Agreements.--The Committee notes Presidential 
Directive NSPD-43/HSPD-14 charters DNDO to develop a domestic 
nuclear detection architecture to counter the treat of nuclear 
terrorism. While DNDO has the responsibility for the 
development of this architecture, other Federal agencies such 
as the Department of Energy, Department of Defense, and 
Department of State are responsible for its implementation. The 
Committee is concerned DNDO lacks the ability to ensure these 
agencies will follow through with their role in this 
architecture. Therefore, of the funds provided for ``Research, 
Development and Operations'', $80,000,000 is not available for 
obligation until the Secretary of Homeland Security enters into 
a memorandum of understanding with each Federal agency and 
organization identified in the global architecture. These 
agreements should clearly define the role and responsibility of 
each entity, as well as resource responsibility and commitment.
    Budget Submission.--The Committee understands in May 2006 
other agencies identified in DNDO's global strategy for 
domestic nuclear detection were required to submit their five-
budget projections to DNDO. Developing a crosscut of all 
agencies involved in the global strategy is critical to the 
success of its mission. DNDO is directed to report to the 
Committee no later than November 1, 2006, on the budget 
crosscut. The budget crosscut should include investments of all 
entities, how these investments will meet the goals of the 
global strategy, the performance measures associated with these 
investments, identification of investment gaps, and what 
budgetary mechanisms DNDO will have in place to ensure 
appropriate and adequate resources are requested.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $30,468,000, for the management 
and administration expenses of the Domestic Nuclear Detection 
Office's [DNDO's] programs and activities for fiscal year 2007.
    Reimbursement of Detailees.--The Committee notes the fiscal 
year 2007 budget proposal includes $5,515,172 for reimbursing 
staff from other Federal agencies. The Committee disagrees with 
the DHS's policy of reimbursing other agencies in order to gain 
their support for this mission. For continuity of operations, 
the Committee provides the funds requested for detailee 
reimbursements for fiscal year 2007. The Committee includes 
bill language that no such funds be provided in fiscal year 
2008 and thereafter for non-DHS participating staff.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides $234,024,000 for research, 
development and operations carried out by DNDO. The Committee 
provides a decrease of $93,296,000 from the level proposed in 
the budget due to fiscal constraints.
    Cargo Advanced Automated Radiography Systems [CAARS].--The 
Committee provides $15,500,000, instead of $33,500,000 as 
proposed in the budget, due to the delay in the start of this 
program.
    University Research Programs.--The Committee does not 
provide the funds proposed in the budget for DNDO to establish 
a university research program. Science and Technology [S&T;] has 
an established program. The Director of DNDO should work with 
the Under Secretary of S&T; to develop a nuclear and 
radiological component of S&T;'s university research portfolio 
rather than start a duplicative grant program.
    Radiological and Nuclear Forensic and Attribution 
program.--The Committee provides $8,450,000, instead of 
$16,900,000 as proposed in the budget, for the Radiological and 
Nuclear Forensic and Attribution program. The Committee is 
aware this program is jointly managed by the Department of 
Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI] 
and believes the FBI should contribute half of the funding for 
this program.
    The Committee understands this program seeks to establish a 
network of laboratories and facilities for a national nuclear 
forensic capability. DNDO is to report to the Committee no 
later than February 8, 2007, on the selection process of the 
laboratories and facilities and how each one will enhance the 
Nation's nuclear forensic capability.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides $178,000,000 for the DNDO's 
procurement and deployments of the domestic nuclear detection 
architecture. Of the amount provided, $143,000,000 is for the 
deployment of radiation portal monitors and $11,000,000 is for 
the human portable radiation detection systems. The Committee 
provides $5,000,000 for the surge program.
    Advanced Spectroscopic Portal [ASP] Monitor Acquisition.--
In fiscal year 2006, the Committee requested the Government 
Accountability Office [GAO] to conduct an independent review of 
DNDO's expenditure plan for fiscal years 2006-2010. The 
Committee notes GAO raised several concerns about cost 
estimates for ASP monitors due to variability in quantitative 
data on the effectiveness of these systems. The Committee 
includes bill language making $20,000,000 for the creation of 
the Sodium-Iodide Manufacturing program unavailable for 
obligation until the Secretary provides a cost-benefit 
analysis, reviewed by GAO, which can demonstrate the merit and 
cost effectiveness of providing the funding required for the 
acquisition of ASP monitors.

                                TITLE V

                           GENERAL PROVISIONS

    Section 501. The Committee includes a provision limiting 
the expenditure of funds to the current fiscal year unless 
expressly provided otherwise in the act.
    Section 502. The Committee includes a provision that 
unexpended balances of prior appropriations may be merged with 
new appropriations accounts and used for the same purpose, 
subject to the statutory requirements for the reprogramming of 
funds.
    Section 503. The Committee includes a provision providing 
authority to reprogram appropriations within an account and to 
transfer not to exceed 5 percent of appropriations between 
accounts with 15-day advance notification of the Committees on 
Appropriations.
    The Committee expects the Department to submit 
reprogramming requests on a timely basis, and to provide 
complete explanations of the reallocations proposed, including 
detailed justifications of the increases and offsets, and any 
specific impact the proposed changes will have on current and 
future-year appropriations requirements. Each request submitted 
to the Committee should include a detailed table showing the 
proposed revisions at the account, program, project, and 
activity level to the funding and staffing (full-time 
equivalent position) levels, as compared to program, project, 
and activity levels reflected in the table in the statement of 
managers accompanying the conference report on the fiscal year 
2007 appropriations Act as well as the impact on appropriations 
requirements for each future fiscal year.
    The Committee expects the Department to manage its programs 
and activities within the levels appropriated. The Committee is 
concerned with the number of reprogramming proposals submitted 
for consideration by the Department and reminds the Department 
that reprogramming or transfer requests should be submitted 
only in the case of an unforeseeable emergency, or situation 
that could not have been predicted when formulating the budget 
request for the current fiscal year. Further, the Committee 
notes when the Department submits a reprogramming or transfer 
request to the Committees on Appropriations and does not 
receive identical responses from the House and Senate, it is 
the responsibility of the Department to reconcile the House and 
Senate differences before proceeding and, if reconciliation is 
not possible, to consider the reprogramming or transfer request 
unapproved.
    The Department is not to propose a reprogramming or 
transfer of funds after June 30 unless there are exceptional or 
emergency circumstances.
    Section 504. The Committee includes a provision that none 
of the funds appropriated or otherwise available to the 
Department may be used to make payment to the Department's

to exceed 50 percent of unobligated balances remaining at the 
end of fiscal year 2007 of appropriations for salaries and 
expenses available through fiscal year 2008 in the account and 
for the purpose for which the funds were provided. The 
obligation of such funds are subject to the statutory 
requirements for the reprogramming of funds.
    Section 506. The Committee includes a provision providing 
that funds made available by the act for intelligence 
activities are deemed to be specifically authorized until the 
enactment of an act authorizing intelligence activities for

certain specific exceptions, no agency shall purchase, 
construct, or lease additional facilities for the purpose of 
conducting Federal law enforcement training without the advance 
approval of the Committees on Appropriations.
    Section 510. The Committee includes a provision requiring 
the Director of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center to 
ensure that all training facilities are operated at the highest 
capacity throughout the fiscal year.
    Section 511. The Committee includes a provision prohibiting 
the use of funds for any construction, repair, alteration, or 
acquisition project for which a prospectus, if required by the 
Public Buildings Act of 1959, has not been approved.
    Section 512. The Committee includes a provision prohibiting 
the use of funds in contravention of the Buy American Act.
    Section 513. The Committee includes a provision related to 
the transfer of the authority to conduct background 
investigations from the Office of Personnel Management to the 
Department of Homeland Security.
    Section 514. The Committee includes a provision to prohibit 
the obligation of funds for the Secure Flight program, except 
on a test basis, until the requirements of section 522 of 
Public law 108-334 have been met and the Government 
Accountability Office [GAO] has reviewed and made certain 
certifications. The Committee directs GAO to continue to 
evaluate Department of Homeland Security actions to meet the 10 
elements listed in section 522 of Public Law 108-334 and to 
report to the Committee, either incrementally as DHS meets 
additional elements, or when all elements have been met. The 
provision also prohibits the obligation of funds for a 
commercial database that is obtained from or remains under the 
control of a non-Federal entity.

installation of explosive detection systems for air cargo, 
baggage and checkpoint screening systems, subject to section 
503 of this act.
    Section 524. The Committee includes a provision regarding

            (1) Development of plan and implementation.--
                    (A) The Secretary of Homeland Security, in 
                consultation with the Secretary of State, shall 
                develop and implement a plan as expeditiously 
                as possible to require a passport or other 
                document, or combination of documents, deemed 
                by the Secretary of Homeland Security to be 
                sufficient to denote identity and citizenship, 
                for all travel into the United States by United 
                States citizens and by categories of 
                individuals for whom documentation requirements 
                have previously been waived under section 
                212(d)(4)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality 
                Act (8 U.S.C. 1182(d)(4)(B)). This plan shall 
                be implemented not later than 3 months after 
                the Secretary of State and the Secretary of 
                Homeland Security make the certifications 
                required in subsection (B), or June 1, 2009, 
                whichever is earlier. The plan shall seek to 
                expedite the travel of frequent travelers, 
                including those who reside in border 
                communities, and in doing so, shall make 
                readily available a registered traveler program

                the Committees on Appropriations of the Senate 
                and the House of Representatives that the 
                following criteria have been met prior to 
                implementation of Section 7209(b)(1)(A)--

                        Representatives;
                            (iv) an alternative procedure has 
                        been developed for groups of children 
                        traveling across an international 
                        border under adult supervision with 
                        parental consent;
                            (v) the necessary technological 
                        infrastructure to process the passport

                        properly trained in the use of the new 
                        technology;
                            (vi) the passport card has been 
                        made available for the purpose of 
                        international travel by United States 
                        citizens through land and sea ports of 
                        entry between the United States and 
                        Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and
