                               BACKGROUND

                          Purpose of the Bill

    The Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related 
Agencies appropriation bill provides necessary funding for the 
planning, design, construction, alteration, and improvement of 
military facilities worldwide, for both Active and Reserve 
forces. It also finances the cost of military family housing 
and the U.S. share of the NATO Security Investment Program. In 
addition, the bill provides funding to implement base closures 
and realignments authorized by law. The bill provides resources 
to the Department of Veterans Affairs for veterans benefits and 
healthcare. The bill also provides funding for U.S. cemeteries 
and battlefield monuments both in the United States and abroad; 
U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims; and Armed Forces 
Retirement Homes.

                         Comparative Statement

    The Committee recommends appropriations totaling 
$94,315,643,000 for fiscal year 2007 military construction, 
family housing, base closure, veterans health care and 
benefits, as well as related agencies. The table at the end of 
the report displays the Committee recommendation in comparison 
with the current fiscal year, and the President's fiscal year 
2007 request.

        Compliance With Section 308(a) of the Budget Control Act

    Section 308(a) of the Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 
1974 (Public Law 93-344) requires that the Committee include in 
its report a comparison of its recommendations with levels 
contained in the first concurrent resolution. Appropriate data

                        Committee Recommendation

    The Committee recommends new fiscal year 2007 
appropriations of $94,315,643,000. This is $13,099,749,000 over 
the fiscal year 2006 enacted level and $433,501,000 below the 
budget request. The basis for this recommendation is contained 
in the following ``Overview and summary of the bill,'' and 
under the discussions pertaining to each individual 
appropriation. Complete project detail is provided in the 
tables at the end of the report.
    Title I of the Committee recommendation does not contain 
certain items addressed in the House bill, H.R. 5385. The 
Committee believes that it is more appropriate to fund these 
items as part of the Senate Department of Defense 
Appropriations bill, 2007, H.R. 5631. For ease of comparison, 
the Committee report sets forth in title I a ``House 
allowance'' as if these items had not been contained in the 
House passed bill.

                    OVERVIEW AND SUMMARY OF THE BILL

    The total amount of new budget authority recommended by the 
Committee in this bill for fiscal year 2007 is $94,315,643,000. 
The new budget authority represents an increase of 
$13,099,749,000 over the fiscal year 2006 enacted level and 
$433,501,000 below the President's budget request for fiscal 
year 2007. The amount of discretionary budget authority 
recommended by this Committee, as defined by the Budget Act of 
1980, is $52,900,000,000.
    This bill makes appropriations for the Department of 
Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, and other related 
agencies for fiscal year 2007. It provides for military 
construction, family housing and base realignment and closure 
activities of the Defense Department. In addition, the bill 
includes funds for the operation of medical facilities and 
medical care for the Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as 
providing for the benefits and pensions of our Nation's 
veterans. This bill also provides resources for the 
construction and maintenance of cemeteries and monuments, both 
domestically and abroad, that commemorate American servicemen 
and women who have served and died in combat. It also provides 
resources for the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims and 
for the Armed Forces Retirement Homes.

        SUPPORTING THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT THROUGH INFRASTRUCTURE

    As stated in the Constitution of the United States, ``to 
provide for the common defense'' is an essential function of 
the Federal Government. Currently, this task is complicated by 
budgetary constraints and the Nation's changing defensive 
posture. Given this shift in defense posture and the global war 
on terror, the Committee understands the importance of 
providing the necessary tools to those tasked with providing 
for the common defense. Thus, the Committee has made a 
concerted effort to provide resources only for infrastructure 
projects that are the most necessary components of the 
Department's mission.
Increasing Energy Efficiency
    The Federal Government is the Nation's largest consumer of 
energy. The Department of Defense is the Federal Government's 
largest consumer of energy, accounting for approximately 75 
percent of the government's energy use. This means that the 
Department is in a unique position to contribute to the 
Nation's independence from foreign energy sources by 
emphasizing efficiency in the operation of its facilities. 
Further, by focusing on energy efficiency the Department stands 
to extend the life of its facilities, furnishings and equipment 
while improving its bottom line.
    It is worth noting that the Department has made strides in 
this regard, actually decreasing its energy consumption from 
fiscal year 1994 to fiscal year 2004 by approximately 2 
percent. Yet more can be done to promote a ``green'' mentality 
within the Department. Because the Committee is committed to 
guiding the Department in the direction of energy efficiency, 
the Committee has recommended fully funding the Department of 
Defense's Energy Conservation Investment Program. This program 
has yielded excellent results over its life, producing on 
average four dollars of savings through improved energy and 
water efficiency for every dollar invested in the program. The 
Committee has also included language directing the Department 
of Defense to incorporate the highest energy efficiency 
standards possible into the building envelopes of all 
construction funded in this act.
Encouraging Allies' Involvement
    The Committee supports the commitment of the North Atlantic 
Treaty Organization [NATO] to transform itself into a lighter, 
more agile fighting force. The Committee also notes the 
establishment of the NATO Response Force, which will be rapidly 
deployable. While these efforts are essential to the ability of 
NATO to be effective in a 21st century threat environment, this 
transformation cannot be successful without sufficient funding.
    The United States spent approximately 4 percent of its 
gross domestic product [GDP] on defense in 2004, an increase of 
over $37,000,000,000 above the previous year, for the benefit 
of the United States and its allies. By comparison, Germany 
spent 1.4 percent of its GDP on defense; Italy spent 2 percent 
on defense; Spain spent 1.1 percent; and France spent 2.6 
percent. As NATO attempts to transform itself, it becomes more 
important for the members of the NATO alliance to commit 
funding to modernize their own armed forces to an operational 
standard that allows them to be interoperable with the United 
States. Instead, the amount spent by each of these nations on 
defense decreased from 2004 to 2005, and the vast majority of 
contributions by these nations to the United States' defense of 
their countries has come in the form of indirect contributions, 
such as tax waivers, rather than in the form of direct 
contributions to the United States. The result of these 
policies by our allies is that more of a burden lands on the 
United States to provide unilaterally for the common defense. 
It also creates a perception that other NATO countries are 
acting in their own interests to the exclusion of the interests 
of the alliance.
    By increasing defense spending, or by increasing their 
contributions to offset the cost to the United States of 
maintaining forces on their soil, these allies could 
demonstrate their substantial interest in our common defense. 
An alliance in which partners are all substantially 
contributing for the common good also becomes an alliance in 
which the partners have a vested interest in the activities and 
success of the alliance. When western European nations become 
more active participants in the funding of the alliance, they 
will also become more active partners in securing the peace.
    To encourage our allies to become more invested in our 
common defense, the Committee recommendation includes 
provisions to encourage increases in the level of defense 
spending by our allies and to require the Department of Defense 
to report on its efforts to secure contributions to our common 
defense.

           SUPPORTING OUR VETERANS THROUGH BETTER HEALTHCARE

Electronic Health Records
    The VA is at the forefront of developing a comprehensive 
electronic health record system, called HealtheVet-Vista. This 
system will revolutionize the entire healthcare system through 
the use of information technology by making a veteran's 
healthcare record accessible on-line for VA healthcare 
clinicians. At no time was it more valuable than during the 
hurricanes of the 2005 season when veterans from Louisiana were 
evacuated to Texas and needed medical care. When the evacuation 
took place, there was no time to gather paper healthcare 
records. The VA relocated the records to a server in Houston, 
and doctors throughout Texas could access them. This is a 
monumental tribute to the VA and the electronic healthcare 
records they used.
    The Committee is supportive of this valuable national 
project and encourages the Department to move forward with 
nationwide implementation. In addition, the Committee 
understands the Department of Veterans Affairs is working with 
the Department of Defense on the Bi-directional Health 
Information Exchange, a secure exchange of medical records 
between the two Departments. However, this cooperation is not 
moving at a pace suitable to the importance of the men and 
women in uniform. With significant numbers of military service 
persons transitioning from the active duty ranks to the VA 
rolls, the sharing of medical records is even more important. 
The Committee urges the Department of Defense to adopt the VA's 
architecture and hasten the shared use of such a valuable 
system. The Committee believes the VA is leading the Nation, 
both in government and private industry, in healthcare 
delivery, and the electronic health records are a large part of 
that service.

Mental Healthcare Needs
    Many Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom 
[OEF/OIF] veterans, including Guard and Reserve forces, are 
returning home with physical and/or mental injuries. The 
attacks from insurgents and suicide bombers have left a record 
number of men and women with a loss of limbs, brain and spinal 
cord injuries, and blindness. In past wars, these service 
members would not have survived these types of injuries, but 
recent advancements in medical science have made it possible to 
save more lives. The road to recovery is often dependent on the 
quality of care the VA's healthcare system has to offer.
    Many veterans have injuries that are not visible. Many 
suffer from mental health issues and post-traumatic stress 
disorders [PTSD]. PTSD can debilitate our veterans with severe 
mental anguish, stress and depression, disabling them from 
moving forward with their lives. This Committee fully supports 
the VA's efforts to treat all mental health disorders, 
particularly PTSD, and commends the VA for its work in this 
area.

The Department of Veterans Affairs at a Crossroads
    The VA is facing tremendous stresses to its system. 
Healthcare costs are rising, and patient workload is 
increasing. The Department has built the premier healthcare 
system in the country. Veterans are receiving better healthcare 
than at any time in our Nation's history. Compensation and 
pension benefits are at an all time high. At the current rate, 
VA healthcare costs will double by 2014.
    The administration and the Congress must work together to 
continue to provide this world-class healthcare while working 
to contain cost and expenses. Administration proposals to 
increase collections and revenue are not totally without merit, 
but a fairer and more equitable way to implement them must be 
found.
    This Committee urges the administration to work with the 
Congress to devise a way to contain cost before submitting fee 
methods as part of a budget request. Without the cooperation of 
both branches of government, the primary objective of the 
entire government--quality healthcare for our veterans--will 
not be met in the future. The Department is at a critical 
crossroads on fiscal policy. Providing superior healthcare for 
our Nation's veterans and fiscal responsibility to our 
taxpayers are not mutually exclusive. It will take creative and 
innovative approaches, but the goals are achievable.

                                TITLE I

                         MILITARY CONSTRUCTION

                       Items of Special Interest

                                HEARINGS

    The Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans 
Affairs held a hearing related to the fiscal year 2007 Military 
Construction budget request on May 9, 2006. The subcommittee 
heard testimony from representatives of the Department of 
Defense (the Department); the United States Army; the United 
States Navy; and the United States Air Force concerning fiscal 
year 2007 budget priorities, base realignment and closure 
[BRAC], and the impending restructuring of United States 
military facilities overseas.

                  SUMMARY OF COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The budget request for fiscal year 2007 reflects an 
increase of $2,230,026,000 from the amount enacted in fiscal 
year 2006, including rescissions and supplemental funds.
    The Committee recommends $16,262,758,000. This is 
$435,665,000 below the budget request.

                        REPROGRAMMING GUIDELINES

    The following reprogramming guidelines apply for all 
military construction and family housing projects. A project or 
account (including the sub-elements of an account) which has 
been specifically reduced by the Congress in acting on the 
budget request is considered to be a congressional interest 
item and as such, prior approval is required. Accordingly, no 
reprogrammings to an item specifically reduced below the 
threshold by the Congress are permitted.
    The reprogramming criteria that apply to military 
construction projects (25 percent of the funded amount or 
$2,000,000, whichever is less) continue to apply to new housing 
construction projects and to improvements over $2,000,000. To 
provide the Services the flexibility to proceed with 
construction contracts without disruption or delay, the costs 
associated with environmental hazard remediation such as 
asbestos removal, radon abatement, lead-based paint removal or 
abatement, and any other legislated environmental hazard 
remediation may be excluded, provided that such remediation 
requirements could not be reasonably anticipated at the time of 
the budget submission. This exclusion applies to projects 
authorized in this budget year, as well as projects authorized 
in prior years for which construction has not been completed.
    Furthermore, in instances where prior approval to a 
reprogramming request for a project or account has been 
received from the Committee, the adjusted amount approved 
becomes the new base for any future increase or decrease via 
below-threshold reprogrammings (provided that the project or 
account is not a congressional interest item as defined above).

                       REAL PROPERTY MAINTENANCE

    The Committee recommends a continuation of the following 
general rules for repairing a facility under ``Operation and 
maintenance'' account funding:
  --Components of the facility may be repaired by replacement, 
        and such replacement may be up to current standards or 
        code.
  --Interior arrangements and restorations may be included as 
        repair, but additions, new facilities, and functional 
        conversions must be performed as military construction 
        projects.
  --Such projects may be done concurrent with repair projects, 
        as long as the final conjunctively funded project is a 
        complete and usable facility.
  --The appropriate Service Secretary shall submit a 21-day 
        notification prior to carrying out any repair project 
        with an estimated cost in excess of $7,500,000.
    The Department is directed to continue to report on the 
real property maintenance backlog at all installations for 
which there is a requested construction project in future 
budget requests. This information is to be provided on the Form 
1390. In addition, for all troop housing requests, the Form 
1391 is to continue to show all real property maintenance 
conducted in the past 2 years and all future requirements for 
unaccompanied housing at that installation.
    Air Force Operation and Maintenance Repair Projects.--The 
Committee notes that the Air Force has made extensive use of 
the authority to carry out repair projects using ``Operation 
and maintenance'' account funding. In funding repair projects 
with Operation and Maintenance funds, the Air Force often cites 
a need to maintain its flexibility ``while balancing [its] 
operation and maintenance and military construction programs.'' 
However, in the view of the Committee, this practice has 
slipped out of balance. The Air Force elected to execute 
$772,210,837 in facility repair projects with costs over 
$750,000 (the threshold for using O&M funds for construction) 
in fiscal year 2005 using O&M funds. While these projects are 
within the bounds of operation and maintenance, they could 
appropriately be executed with military construction funds. The 
Air Force requested $5,601,510,000 in emergency supplemental 
funding for operation and maintenance in fiscal year 2005, 
justifying these funds as ``necessary resources to cover costs 
associated with personnel support costs for Active and 
mobilized Reserve and National Guard personnel, including 
travel and per diem; and operations, such as incremental flying 
hours, special airlift missions, contractor logistics support, 
fuel purchases, base support, depot maintenance, and for over-
ocean transportation.'' The supplemental request did not 
mention facility repair. Yet, had the Air Force not spent 
$772,210,837 of operation and maintenance funds on projects 
that could have been funded through military construction, 
funds for personnel costs and flying hours, for example, would 
have been available to the Air Force and thus reduced the 
necessary amount of its supplemental request.
    While the demand for operation and maintenance dollars is 
divided among many competing and ``must-pay'' bills, military 
construction funds, by contrast, are devoted solely to 
facilities. It seems to the Committee to be unwise to siphon 
funds from such a widely needed account to fund requirements 
that could be funded using a more appropriate account. The Air 
Force has continued the practice of pursuing facility repair 
projects with operation and maintenance funds into fiscal year 
2006, and requested $6,088,200,000 in emergency supplemental 
funds.
    In attempt to restore balance to the operation and 
maintenance and military construction programs, the Committee 
directs the Air Force to submit a report of its fiscal year 
2007 facility repair projects by September 30, 2006, to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress. This 
report shall include the account and sub-account from which the 
Air Force intends to fund each repair project.

                          GLOBAL WAR ON TERROR

    The Committee is aware of several military construction 
projects in Iraq funded in previous supplemental funding bills 
that are no longer needed. This underscores the concern long 
expressed by this Committee regarding the inclusion of military 
construction projects in supplemental spending bills. However, 
as long as the administration continues to request funding for 
the global war on terror via emergency supplemental funding, as 
is clearly the administration's intent, it is important the 
process remain consistent, rather than fund some war-related 
military construction via supplemental spending bills and other 
war-related military construction through the regular budget 
process. For this reason, the Committee has rescinded the funds 
for projects no longer required in Iraq and appropriated, using 
these emergency funds, several projects requested in the 
President's budget request which are clearly linked to the 
global war on terror. They are as follows: Special Operations 
Forces Rotary Wing Hangar, Qatar; Special Operations Forces 
Aircraft Operations and Maintenance Hangar, Qatar; Operations/
Technical Building, Menwith Hill Station, United Kingdom; Base 
Camp, Classified Location; and the Secretary of Defense's 
``Contingency construction'' account. This action will keep 
emergency projects related to the global war on terror funded 
within emergency supplemental appropriations until the 
administration includes all funding related to the global war 
on terror in its base budget.

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The military construction appropriation for the Army 
provides for acquisition, construction, installation, and 
equipment of temporary or permanent public works, military 
installations, facilities, and real property for the Army. This 
appropriation also provides for facilities required as well as 
funds for infrastructure projects and programs required to 
support bases and installations around the world.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $2,003,474,000 for the Army for 
fiscal year 2007. This amount is $78,613,000 above the fiscal 
year 2006 enacted level, including rescissions and supplemental 
funds, and $56,288,000 below the budget request. Further detail 
of the Committee's recommendation is provided in the State 
table at the end of this report.
    Master Plan, Fort Belvoir, Virginia.--The Committee is 
aware of the disparate tenant agencies and organizations that 
will be brought together at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, as a result 
of the 2005 BRAC process. Further, the Committee is concerned 
that the significant construction planned for Fort Belvoir as a 
part of this consolidation be developed in a comprehensive way, 
to prevent redundant expenditures and inefficient use of the 
land and infrastructure at Fort Belvoir. The Committee directs 
the Department of the Army, in consultation with tenant 
agencies, to submit a master plan for Fort Belvoir, 
incorporating BRAC 2005 decisions, by September 30, 2006.
    The Committee fully expects contracts for the following 
projects to be awarded, as early in fiscal year 2007 as 
practical:
    Advanced Individual Training Barracks, Fort Meade, 
Maryland.--The Committee urges the Army to advance the 
construction of this facility in its Future Years Defense Plan 
to fiscal year 2008 to replace the current failing facilities 
constructed in 1954, and meet the urgent housing needs for 
trainees at Fort Meade.
    Aviation Readiness Center Addition/Alteration, Helena 
Regional Airport, Montana.--Of the funds provided for planning 
and design in this account, the Committee directs that 
$3,370,000 be made available for the design of this facility.
    Body Repair Building, Red River Army Depot, Texas.--Of the 
funds provided for planning and design in this account, the 
Committee directs that $500,000 be made available for the 
design of this facility and urges the Army to include this 
project in its Future Years Defense Plan in the fiscal year 
2008 budget submission.
    General Instruction Building, Fort Lewis, Washington.--Of 
the funds provided for unspecified minor construction in this 
account, the Committee directs that $1,500,000 be made 
available for the construction of this facility.
    Multifunction Center, Camp Rudder, Eglin Air Force Base, 
Florida.--Of the funds provided for unspecified minor 
construction in this account, the Committee directs that 
$1,450,000 be made available for the construction of this 
facility, which is urgently needed to replace a multipurpose 
center which was destroyed by fire in November 2005. The 
Committee notes that Camp Rudder is a remote Army Ranger 
enclave located on Eglin AFB, and that as a result of the fire, 
no multifunction facilities are available within 25 miles for 
the students or permanent party personnel attached to Camp 
Rudder.
    Railroad Line Spur, Wabasha, Hawthorne Army Depot, 
Nevada.--Of the funds provided for unspecified minor 
construction in this account, the Committee directs that 
$1,400,000 be made available for the construction of this 
railroad spur.
    Regional NCO Academy, Fort Richardson, Alaska.--Of the 
funds provided for planning and design in this account, the 
Committee directs that $1,300,000 be made available for the 
design of this facility.
    The Committee recommends rescissions as follows:

                                                                                    [In thousands of dollars]

House allowance (including rescissions).................   1,155,834,000
Committee recommendation (including rescissions)........   1,200,065,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The military construction appropriation for the Navy and 
Marine Corps provides for acquisition, construction, 
installation, and equipment of temporary or permanent public 
works, naval installations, facilities, and real property for 
the Navy and the Marine Corps. This appropriation also provides 
for facilities required as well as funds for infrastructure 
projects and programs required to support bases and 
installations around the world.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $1,200,065,000 for Navy and Marine 
Corps military construction for fiscal year 2007. This amount 
is $231,457,000 below the fiscal year 2006 enacted level, 
including rescissions and supplemental funds, and $38,027,000 
above the budget request. Further detail of the Committee's 
recommendation is provided in the State table at the end of 
this report.
    Master Plan, Guam.--The Committee is aware of the 
considerable plans of United States Pacific Command [PACOM] to 
expand the presence of the United States military on Guam, 
including the movement of approximately 8,000 Marines from 
Japan. The Government of Japan has agreed to pay approximately 
60 percent of the estimated $10,300,000,000 cost of this 
relocation. The Committee commends the Department of Defense 
for engaging our allies prior to this move to ensure the moving 
process and its cost are undertaken as a partnership. Further, 
the Committee commends the Government of Japan for its 
commitment to our common defense.
    The prospect of a $10,300,000,000 construction program on 
the island of Guam is ambitious to say the least, and will 
require a well-developed master plan to efficiently use the 
available land and infrastructure. Absent this plan, the 
Committee has not recommended funding for two projects included 
in the President's budget request at Anderson Air Force Base. 
Rather, the Committee recommends deferring these projects until 
such time as they can be incorporated into a master plan for 
Guam and viewed in that context. To that end, the Committee 
directs the Secretary of Defense to submit a master plan for 
Guam by December 29, 2006, to the Committees on Appropriations 
of both Houses of Congress and clarifies its standing request 
of GAO to review overseas master plans, to include a review of 
the master planning effort for Guam. The Committee also directs 
the Secretary of Defense to provide a report accounting for the 
United States' share of this construction program to project-
level detail and the year in which each project is expected to 
be funded.
    The Committee recommends rescissions as follows:

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The military construction appropriation for the Air Force 
provides for acquisition, construction, installation, and 
equipment of temporary or permanent public works, military 
installations, facilities, and real property for the Air Force. 
This appropriation also provides for facilities required as 
well as funds for infrastructure projects and programs required 
to support bases and installations around the world.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $1,191,175,000 for the Air Force 
in fiscal year 2007. This amount is $232,982,000 below the 
fiscal year 2006 enacted level, including rescissions and 
supplemental funds, and $35,027,000 above the budget request. 
Further detail of the Committee's recommendation is provided in 
the State table at the end of this report.
    United States Air Force Academy, Colorado.--The Committee 
notes that most of the United States Air Force Academy's 
[USAFA's] campus, including its dormitories, classrooms, 
gymnasiums, training centers, and administrative buildings, was 
constructed in the late 1950s. The Committee recognizes the Air 
Force invested a sizable amount of military construction 
funding, totaling $310,000,000, and operation and maintenance 
facility and infrastructure sustainment funding, totaling 
$437,600,000, at the Air Force Academy from fiscal year 2000 to 
fiscal year 2006. The Committee supported these requests and 
notes they were helpful in alleviating some concerns about the 
Academy's infrastructure. However, the Committee understands 
that these requests are not sufficient to address the overall 
rapidly deteriorating condition of a significant portion of the 
USAFA campus. The Committee encourages the Air Force to 
continue its strong commitment to the Academy's infrastructure.
    The Committee is interested in the Air Force's 
infrastructure recapitalization plan for the Academy, and urges 
the Air Force to provide resources needed to improve the 
infrastructure at USAFA over the long-term. Therefore, the 
Committee directs the Air Force to submit a master 
infrastructure recapitalization plan for USAFA facilities by no 
later than March 16, 2007. The plan should include descriptions 
of the projects that are needed to improve the infrastructure 
required for educating, training, and equipping the cadets at 
USAFA; and a funding plan showing when the Air Force would 
expect to support the projects listed.
    The Committee fully expects contracts for the following 
projects to be awarded, as early in fiscal year 2007 as 
practical:
    Consolidated Base Support Center, Dyess AFB, Texas.--Of the 
funds provided for planning and design in this account, the 
Committee directs that $1,800,000 be made available for the 
design of this facility.
    Information Technology Complex, Phase II, Wright-Patterson 
AFB, Ohio.--Of the funds provided for planning and design in 
this account, the Committee directs that $900,000 be made 
available for the design of this facility.
    Joint Intelligence Technical Training Facility, Phase I, 
Goodfellow AFB, Texas.--Of the funds provided for planning and 
design in this account, the Committee directs that $1,550,000 
be made available for the design of this facility.
    Parking Structure, Los Angeles Air Force Base, 
California.--Of the funds provided for planning and design in 
this account, the Committee directs that $1,300,000 be made 
available for the design of this facility and urges the Air 
Force to fully fund this project in fiscal year 2008 to 
alleviate a severe parking shortage.
    33rd IOS Operations Facility, Lackland AFB, Texas.--Of the 
funds provided for planning and design in this account, the 
Committee directs that $1,750,000 be made available for the 
design of this facility.
    The Committee recommends rescissions as follows:

    The military construction appropriation for the Department 
of Defense provides for acquisition, construction, 
installation, and equipment of temporary or permanent public 
works, military installations, facilities, and real property 
Defense-Wide. This appropriation also provides for facilities 
required as well as funds for infrastructure projects and 
programs required to support bases and installations around the 
world.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $1,038,216,000 for projects 
considered within the ``Defense-Wide'' account. This amount is 
$6,150,000 below the fiscal year 2006 enacted level, including 
rescissions and supplemental funds, and $169,982,000 below the 
budget request. Further detail of the Committee's 
recommendation is provided in the State table at the end of 
this report.

                        CONTINGENCY CONSTRUCTION

    The Committee has provided $10,000,000 for the Secretary of 
Defense ``Contingency construction'' account. This account 
provides funds which may be used by the Secretary of Defense 
for unforeseen facility requirements and military exercises, 
including those related to the global war on terror.

                 ENERGY CONSERVATION INVESTMENT PROGRAM

    The Committee recommends the full budget request of 
$60,000,000 for the Energy Conservation Investment Program 
[ECIP]. The Committee maintains a strong interest in renewable 
energy resources, including wind, solar, and geothermal, and 
commends the Services for the awards they have received for 
renewable energy initiatives, including the Presidential Awards 
for Leadership in Federal Energy Management.
    Energy Efficiency.--The Committee notes that energy 
efficiency in building practices provides significant 
opportunities for energy savings and thus cost savings for the 
Department of Defense. The Committee therefore directs the 
Department to incorporate the highest energy efficiency 
standards possible into the building envelopes of all 
construction funded under this act. ``Energy efficiency'' is 
defined as in sections 179D(c) and 45L(c) of the Internal 
Revenue Code of 1986 (26 U.S.C. 1), as amended by the Energy 
Policy Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-58).
    Water Conservation.--The Committee encourages the 
Department of Defense to aggressively pursue water conservation 
technologies in its construction projects, and notes that the 
Army has promulgated a standard for the use of waterfree 
urinals in new military construction and in major renovations 
of existing facilities. The Committee commends the Army for its 
adoption of this fiscally and environmentally prudent 
technology, and directs the Secretary of the Army to report to 
the Committee by December 31, 2006, on the Army's 
implementation of the new standard, including the impact on 
energy consumption, water use, and utility costs at facilities 
using the technology. The Committee encourages the Departments 
of the Navy and Air Force, and the Defense Agencies, to explore 
the adoption of similar standards for new construction and 
major renovation, as appropriate, with particular attention to 
facilities in arid environments. The Secretary of Defense is 
directed to report to the Committee by March 1, 2007, on the 
Department's actions to integrate this and other water 
conserving technologies into its facilities.
    The Committee recommends rescissions as follows:

    The Committee fully expects contracts for the following 
projects to be awarded, as early in fiscal year 2007 as 
practical:

               MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, ARMY NATIONAL GUARD

    Armed Forces Reserve Center, Clarksdale, Mississippi.--The 
Committee understands a new reserve center is urgently needed 
at this location and is among the top priorities of the 
Mississippi Adjutant General. The Committee therefore urges the 
Army National Guard to accelerate planning and design for this 
facility with funds previously appropriated for this purpose, 
and to include full funding for this project in the fiscal year 
2008 budget request.
    Armed Forces Reserve Center, Monticello, Mississippi.--The 
Committee understands a new reserve center is urgently needed 
at this location and is among the top priorities of the 
Mississippi Adjutant General. The Committee therefore urges the 
Army National Guard to accelerate planning and design for this 
facility with funds previously appropriated for this purpose, 
and to include full funding for this project in the fiscal year 
2008 budget request.
    Armed Forces Reserve Center, Logan County, West Virginia.--
The Committee understands that a new reserve center is urgently 
needed at this location to accommodate a major mission change 
and expansion resulting from the Army's transformation and 
modularity efforts. The Committee therefore urges the Army 
National Guard to accelerate planning and design for this 
facility with funds previously appropriated for this purpose, 
and to include full funding for this project in the fiscal year 
2008 budget request.
    Bachelor Officers Quarters/Bachelor Enlisted Quarters, 
Ravenna Training and Logistics Site, Ohio.--Of the funds 
provided for unspecified minor construction in this account, 
the Committee directs that $1,500,000 be made available for the 
construction of this barracks facility.
    Barracks, Los Alamitos, California.--Of the funds provided 
for unspecified minor construction in this account, the 
Committee directs that $1,400,000 be made available for the

fiscal year 2008 budget request.

                   North Atlantic Treaty Organization


                      SECURITY INVESTMENT PROGRAM

Appropriations, 2006....................................    $174,789,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     220,985,000
House allowance.........................................     200,985,000
Committee recommendation................................     205,985,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization [NATO] appropriation 
provides for the U.S. cost-share of the NATO Security 
Investment Program for the acquisition and construction of 
military facilities and installations (including international 
military headquarters) and for related expenses for the 
collective defense of the NATO Treaty Area.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $205,985,000 for the North 
Atlantic Treaty Organization [NATO] Security Investment Program 
for fiscal year 2007. This amount is $31,196,000 above the 
fiscal year 2006 enacted level and $15,000,000 below the budget 
request.
    European Investment.--The United States contributes 23.2 
percent of the funding provided to the NATO Security Investment 
Program in addition to the President's current budget request 
of $940,000,000 for United States military construction 
projects at United States military installations in the 
European Theater in fiscal year 2007. Thus, while the United 
States contributes more than any other country to the NATO 
infrastructure program, it will also contribute almost 
$1,000,000,000 unilaterally in military infrastructure in 
fiscal year 2007 to the common defense of the NATO alliance.
    It is against this backdrop that the Committee urges the 
United States' NATO allies to increase their investment in our 
common defense and, as detailed in section 118 of the 
administrative provisions of this title, directs the Department 
of Defense to report to the Committees on Appropriations of 
both Houses of Congress, no later than December 1, 2006, on its 
efforts to obtain contributions from our allies to our common 
defense.
    The Committee continues the requirement that no funds will 
be used for projects (including planning and design) related to 
the enlargement of NATO and the Partnership for Peace program, 
unless the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress are notified 21 days in advance of the obligation of 
funds.
    The Department of Defense is directed to identify 
separately the level of effort anticipated for NATO enlargement 
and for Partnership for Peace for that fiscal year in future 
budget justifications.

                        Family Housing Overview

    The Committee recommends $3,988,827,000 for family housing 
construction, operations and maintenance, and the Department's 
family housing improvement fund. This amount is $493,405,000 
below the amount appropriated in fiscal year 2006, including 
rescissions and supplemental funds, and $95,213,000 below the 
fiscal year 2007 budget request.
    Oversight of Privatized Family Housing Projects.--The 
Committee is concerned that, as the inventory of military 
family housing transitions from direct military management to 
the management of private developers, the military Services 
remain vigilant in their oversight of family housing. It is 
imperative that the Services ensure private developers, once 
entrusted with contracts to provide family housing, maintain 
military communities not only at levels commensurate with the 
level of dedication exhibited by their occupants, but in 
accordance with their requirements under contract. To ensure 
this vigilance, the Committee directs the Secretary of Defense 
to submit quarterly reports to the Committees on Appropriations 
of both Houses of Congress on the maintenance of family housing 
units and the contributions of housing privatization entities 
to the recapitalization accounts for each ongoing family 
housing privatization project.

                   Family Housing Construction, Army

Appropriations, 2006 (including rescission).............    $528,140,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     594,991,000
House allowance.........................................     578,791,000
Committee recommendation................................     578,791,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The family housing appropriation for the Army provides for 
expenses of family housing for construction, including 
acquisition, replacement, addition, expansion, extension, and 
alteration. This appropriation provides for the financing of 
all costs for construction, improvements and leasing of all 
Army housing. In addition to quality of life enhancements, the 
program contains initiatives to reduce operating costs and 
conserve energy by upgrading or replacing facilities which can 
be made more efficient through relatively modest investments in 
improvements. The Department of Defense is authorized to use 
limited partnerships, make direct and guaranteed loans, and 
convey Department-owned property to stimulate the private 
sector to increase the availability of affordable, quality 
housing for the Army.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $578,791,000 for family housing 
construction, Army, in fiscal year 2007. This amount is 
$50,651,000 above the fiscal year 2006 enacted level, including 
rescissions, and $16,200,000 below the budget request.

                              CONSTRUCTION

    The Committee recommends $241,800,000 for new construction, 
as shown below:

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $1,115,938,000 for family housing 
construction, Air Force, in fiscal year 2007. This amount is 
$252,930,000 below the fiscal year 2006 enacted level, 
including rescissions and supplemental funds, and $67,200,000 
below the budget request.
    Family Housing, Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany.--The Air 
Force's fiscal year 2007 budget request to spend $39,294,000 to 
build a second phase of family housing (60 units) at 
Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, has been of great interest to 
the Committee. In fiscal year 2006, Congress provided 
$45,385,000 for the first phase of family housing (79 units) at 
Spangdahlem in an effort to put the needs of our airmen and 
their families first and to demonstrate the commitment of the 
United States to the community surrounding Spangdahlem Air 
Base.
    The Committee has conducted extensive review of the Air 
Force's proposed housing plan at Spangdahlem, including 
briefings, site visits to Spangdahlem Air Base and surrounding 
areas, and a request of GAO to review the Air Force's 
methodology in undertaking this project. The Committee 
questioned the Air Force's underlying assumptions, such as 
residual value calculations, and remains skeptical of its 
original proposal to build housing at Spangdahlem without first 
conducting an updated Housing Requirements Market Analysis 
[HRMA] and measuring community interest in build-to-lease 
housing at Spangdahlem. According to the GAO, the Air Force did 
not follow its own guidance in performing it original life-
cycle cost analysis.
    Throughout this process, the Committee has supported the 
need for family housing at Spangdahlem Air Base. After this 
thorough review, the Committee recommends fully funding the 
President's fiscal year 2007 budget request of $39,294,000 for 
family housing at Spangdahlem. However, the Committee does not 
expect funding for a third phase of housing at Spangdahlem, as 
originally proposed by the Air Force, to be necessary, as an 
updated HRMA should reduce the expected need and build-to-lease 
proposals should meet the remaining need at Spangdahlem. 
Therefore, this Committee does not intend to provide funding 
for housing at Spangdahlem Air Base in fiscal year 2008.
    Family Housing, Malmstrom AFB, Montana.--The Committee 
recognizes the quality of construction from past housing 
projects on Malmstrom AFB that utilized local contractors. The 
Committee therefore directs the Air Force to contract for 
housing at Malmstrom AFB in housing blocks small enough to 
allow local contractors to compete for these contracts and 
further directs the Air Force not to use language that may 
unfairly bias contract bids to large companies over small 
contractors.

    The Committee recommends $48,506,000 for family housing 
operation and maintenance, Defense-Wide. This amount is 
$2,579,000 above the fiscal year 2006 enacted level and equal 
to the budget request.

                    Family Housing Improvement Fund

Appropriations, 2006....................................      $2,475,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................       2,500,000
House allowance.........................................       2,500,000

    The family housing improvement appropriation provides for 
the Department of Defense to undertake housing initiatives and 
to provide an alternative means of acquiring and improving 
military family housing and supporting facilities. This account 
provides seed money for housing privatization initiatives.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $2,500,000 for the Family Housing 
Improvement Fund. This amount is $25,000 above the fiscal year

          Chemical Demilitarization Construction, Defense-Wide

Appropriations, 2006....................................................
Budget estimate, 2007...................................    $130,993,000
House allowance.........................................      90,993,000
Committee recommendation................................     140,993,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    This account provides funding for design and construction 
of full-scale chemical disposal facilities and associated 
projects to upgrade installation support facilities and 
infrastructures required to support the Chemical 
Demilitarization Program. This account was established starting 
in fiscal year 2005 to comply with section 141(b) of the fiscal 
year 2003 National Defense Authorization Act.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $140,993,000 for chemical 
demilitarization construction projects, an increase of 
$10,000,000 over the President's budget request. The Committee 
notes that the fiscal year 2006 budget request did not include 
any funding for chemical demilitarization construction in the 
military construction program, but instead funded the entire 
chemical demilitarization program through the ``Defense 
chemical agents and munitions destruction, Army, research and 
development'' account. The $51,000,000 provided for 
construction activities at the Blue Grass and Pueblo sites in 
this account in fiscal year 2006 was a one-time exception to 
assist the Defense Department to restart work at these two 
sites. The Committee directs the Department to include future 
requests for funding in the appropriate military construction 
accounts.

                       Base Closure Account 1990

Appropriations, 2006....................................    $252,279,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     191,220,000
House allowance.........................................     216,220,000
Committee recommendation................................     191,220,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The base closure appropriation (1990) provides for clean up 
and disposal of property consistent with the four closure 
rounds required by the base closure Acts of 1988 and 1990.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends a total of $191,220,000 for the 
Base Closure Account 1990. This is $61,059,000 below the fiscal 
year 2006 enacted level and equal to the budget request. The 
Military Departments have assured the Committee that this level 
of funding, in conjunction with estimated proceeds from Navy 
land sales of $334,800,000, is adequate to address urgent 
requirements for fiscal year 2007 resulting from prior BRAC 
rounds.
    Since the start of the current process for BRAC, Military 
Construction Appropriations Acts have appropriated a net total 
of $23,458,554,000 for the entire program for fiscal years 1990 
through 2006. The total amount appropriated for BRAC 1990, 
combined with the Committee recommendation for fiscal year 2007 
is $23,649,774,000.
    In appropriating these funds, the Committee continues to 
provide the Department with the flexibility to allocate funds 
by Service, function, and installation. The following table 
displays the total amount appropriated for each round of base 
closure, including amounts recommended for fiscal year 2007 for 
BRAC 1990.

    Environmental Remediation, McClellan AFB, California.--The 
former McClellan Air Force Base, closed by the 1995 Base 
Realignment and Closure round, performed operation and 
maintenance service on aircraft involving the use, storage, and 
disposal of hazardous materials including industrial solvents, 
caustic cleansers, paints, metal plating wastes, low-level 
radioactive wastes, and a variety of fuel oils and lubricants. 
Active cleanup of solvents in soil and groundwater has been 
continuing since it first started in the mid 1980s. In 1987 the 
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] named McClellan a 
Superfund Site.
    The Committee is concerned that the funds the Air Force 
programs for environmental cleanup annually at McClellan are 
being diverted to bases not on the EPA's National Priorities 
List [NPL]. The NPL highlights known releases or threatened 
releases of hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants 
throughout the United States and its territories.
    The Committee strongly urges the Air Force to accelerate 
cleanup efforts at McClellan, and to provide the Committees on 
Appropriation of both Houses of Congress, no later than 
December 29, 2006, with a timetable and full accounting of past 
and projected BRAC funding for this site through the completion 
of the remediation process.

Budget estimate, 2007...................................   5,626,223,000
House allowance.........................................   5,309,876,000
Committee recommendation................................   5,237,100,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The base realignment and closure appropriation for 2005 
provides for clean up and disposal of property consistent with 
the 2005 closure round required by the Defense Base Closure and 
Realignment Act of 1990 (10 U.S.C. section 2687 note).

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends a total of $5,237,100,000 for the 
Department of Defense Base Closure Account 2005. This amount is 
$3,747,679,000 above the fiscal year 2006 enacted level and 
$389,123,000 below the budget request.
    Jointness.--The 2005 BRAC round was undertaken in large 
part to facilitate a more ``joint'' Department of Defense. 
While this process requires the Services to reconcile sometimes 
conflicting philosophies, the Department is becoming more 
``joint'' as it implements the 2005 BRAC decisions. The chart 
below details joint projects to be carried out using BRAC 2005 
funding.

                                TITLE II

                     DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS

Appropriations, 2006 (including supplementals).......... $71,457,832,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................  77,908,797,000
House allowance.........................................  77,908,811,000
Committee recommendation................................  77,908,797,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Veterans Administration was established as an 
independent agency by Executive Order 5398 of July 21, 1930, in 
accordance with the Act of July 3, 1930 (46 Stat. 1016). This 
act authorized the President to consolidate and coordinate 
Federal agencies especially created for or concerned with the 
administration of laws providing benefits to veterans, 
including the Veterans' Bureau, the Bureau of Pensions, and the 
National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers. On March 15, 
1989, the Veterans Administration was elevated to Cabinet-level 
status as the Department of Veterans Affairs [VA].
    The VA's mission is to serve America's veterans and their 
families as their principal advocate in ensuring they receive 
the care, support, and recognition they have earned in service 
to the Nation. The VA's operating units include the Veterans 
Benefits Administration, Veterans Health Administration, 
National Cemetery Administration, and staff support offices.
    The Veterans Benefits Administration [VBA] provides an 
integrated program of non-medical veteran benefits. The VBA 
administers a broad range of benefits to veterans and other 
eligible beneficiaries through 57 regional offices and the 
records processing center in St. Louis, Missouri. The benefits 
provided include: compensation for service-connected 
disabilities; pensions for wartime, needy, and totally disabled 
veterans; vocational rehabilitation assistance; educational and 
training assistance; home buying assistance; estate protection 
services for veterans under legal disability; information and 
assistance through personalized contacts; and six life 
insurance programs.
    The Veterans Health Administration [VHA] develops, 
maintains, and operates a national healthcare delivery system 
for eligible veterans; carries out a program of education and 
training of healthcare personnel; carries out a program of 
medical research and development; and furnishes health services 
to members of the Armed Forces during periods of war or 
national emergency. A system of 156 hospitals, 935 outpatient 
clinics, 135 nursing homes, and 43 VA domiciliary residential 
rehabilitation treatment programs is maintained to meet the 
VA's medical mission.
    The National Cemetery Administration provides for the 
interment of the remains of eligible deceased servicepersons 
and discharged veterans in any national cemetery with available 
grave space; permanently maintains these graves; provides 
headstones and markers for the graves of eligible persons in 
national and private cemeteries; administers the grant program 
for aid to States in establishing, expanding, or improving 
State veterans' cemeteries; and provides certificates to 
families of deceased veterans recognizing the veterans' 
contributions and service to the Nation. The National Cemetery 
Administration includes 158 cemeterial installations and 
activities.
    Other VA offices include the General Counsel, Inspector 
General, Boards of Contract Appeals and Veterans Appeals, and 
the general administration, which supports the Secretary, 
Deputy Secretary, Under Secretary for Benefits, Under Secretary 
for Health, and the Under Secretary for Memorial Affairs.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $77,908,797,000 for the Department 
of Veterans Affairs, including $41,415,643,000 in mandatory 
spending and $36,493,154,000 in discretionary spending. The 
amount provided for discretionary activities represents an 
increase of $2,240,836,000 above the fiscal year 2006 enacted 
level, including supplemental funds, and equal to the budget 
request.
    Administrative Policy and Legislative Proposals.--The 
Committee is deeply concerned that the Department of Veterans 
Affairs continues to assume congressional approval of its 
policy and legislative proposals before the Congress has done 
so. The current budget request has not only assumed full 
enactment of its proposal, the Department assumed $795,509,000 
in revenue and savings as part of the budget request. 
Therefore, the Department's budget request is $795,509,000 less 
than the stated need. This practice of under-requesting the 
true needs of the Department to care for our veterans, with the 
mandate that the Congress either enact the fees, shortchange 
veterans healthcare, or make up the difference, is not 
responsible budgeting. It is not a practice that the Congress 
should tolerate. Risking the healthcare service for our 
veterans is not a practice our veterans should tolerate.
    Therefore, the Department of Veterans Affairs should 
thoroughly evaluate revenue alternatives and report these 
alternatives to the proper Committees in Congress for 
consideration prior to including any such assumptions in budget 
requests. In the strongest terms possible, this Committee 
directs the Department not to submit another budget using 
assumed fees and copayments until such time as the Congress 
approves and authorizes the Department to implement new revenue 
enhancing policies. To do otherwise undermines the entire 
appropriations process and a system that veterans depend on for 
critical care.

                    Veterans Benefits Administration

Appropriations, 2006.................................... $37,360,027,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................  41,569,801,000
House allowance.........................................  41,569,815,000
Committee recommendation................................  41,569,801,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Veterans Benefits Administration [VBA] is responsible 
for the payment of compensation and pension benefits to 
eligible ser- 
vice-connected disabled veterans. This administration also 
provides education benefits and housing loan guarantees.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $41,569,801,000 for the Veterans 
Benefits Administration. This amount is composed of 
$38,007,095,000 for ``Compensation and pensions''; 
$3,262,006,000 for ``Readjustment benefits''; $49,850,000 for 
``Veterans insurance and indemnities''; $196,692,000 for the 
``Veterans housing benefit program fund program account'', with 
$100,000,000 in credit subsidies and $153,185,000 for 
administrative expenses; $53,000 for the ``Vocational 
rehabilitation loans program account'' and $305,000 for 
administrative expenses; and $615,000 for the ``Native American 
veteran housing loan program account''.

                       COMPENSATION AND PENSIONS

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2006.................................... $33,897,787,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................  38,007,095,000
House allowance.........................................  38,007,095,000
Committee recommendation................................  38,007,095,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Compensation is payable to living veterans who have 
suffered impairment of earning power from service-connected 
disabilities. The amount of compensation is based upon the 
impact of disabilities on a veteran's earning capacity. Death 
compensation or dependency and indemnity compensation is 
payable to the surviving spouses and dependents of veterans 
whose deaths occur while on active duty or result from service-
connected disabilities. A clothing allowance may also be 
provided for service-connected veterans who use a prosthetic or 
orthopedic device.
    Pensions are an income security benefit payable to needy 
wartime veterans who are precluded from gainful employment due 
to non-service-connected disabilities which render them 
permanently and totally disabled. Under the Omnibus Budget 
Reconciliation Act of 1990, veterans 65 years of age or older 
are no longer considered permanently and totally disabled by 
law and are thus subject to a medical evaluation. Death 
pensions are payable to needy surviving spouses and children of 
deceased wartime veterans. The rate payable for both disability 
and death pensions is determined on the basis of the annual 
income of the veteran or their survivors.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $38,007,095,000 for ``Compensation 
and pensions''. This is an increase of $4,109,308,000 above the 
fiscal year 2006 enacted level and the same as the budget 
request. The amount includes funds for a projected fiscal year 
2007 cost-of-living increase of 2.6 percent for pension 
recipients.
    The appropriation includes $28,112,000 in payments to the 
``General operating expenses'' and ``Medical services'' 
accounts for expenses related to implementing provisions of the 
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990, the Veterans' 
Benefits Act of 1992, the Veterans' Benefits Improvements Act 
of 1994, and the Veterans' Benefits Improvements Act of 1996.
    Claims Processing Wait Time.--The Committee is aware the VA 
claim processing wait time is projected to increase 
significantly. At a time when our OEF/OIF veterans are 
returning with significant injuries, the Committee believes the 
VA should be processing veterans claims in a more timely and 
efficient manner. The Committee is concerned how the VA will 
reduce the number of average days processing claims. Progress 
is not being made fast enough toward achieving the 125 day 
strategic goal. Therefore, the Committee directs the VA to 
provide a report on the number of new hires for claim 
processing in fiscal year 2006 and projections for 2007, the 
attrition rate for claims examiners, and the projected 
productivity per FTE. This report is due to the Committee on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress no later than 60 days 
following enactment of this act.

                         READJUSTMENT BENEFITS

Appropriations, 2006....................................  $3,309,234,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................   3,262,006,000
House allowance.........................................   3,262,006,000
Committee recommendation................................   3,262,006,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The ``Readjustment benefits'' appropriation finances the 
education and training of veterans and servicepersons whose 
initial entry into active duty took place on or after July 1, 
1985. These benefits are included in the All-Volunteer Force 
Educational Assistance Program (Montgomery GI bill) authorized 
under 38 U.S.C. section 30. Eligibility to receive this 
assistance began in 1987. Basic benefits are funded through 
appropriations made to the readjustment benefits appropriation 
and transfers from the Department of Defense. This account also 
finances vocational rehabilitation, specially adapted housing 
grants, automobile grants with the associated approved adaptive 
equipment for certain disabled veterans, and educational 
assistance allowances for eligible dependents of those veterans 
who died from service-connected causes or have a total 
permanent service-connected disability, as well as dependents 
of servicepersons who were captured or missing in action.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $3,262,006,000 for ``Readjustment 
benefits''. This is a decrease of $47,228,000 below the fiscal 
year 2006 enacted level and the same as the budget request.

                   VETERANS INSURANCE AND INDEMNITIES

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $45,907,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      49,850,000
House allowance.........................................      49,850,000
Committee recommendation................................      49,850,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The ``Veterans insurance and indemnities'' appropriation 
consists of the former appropriations for military and naval 
insurance, applicable to World War I veterans; National Service 
Life Insurance, applicable to certain World War II veterans; 
Servicemen's indemnities, applicable to Korean conflict 
veterans; and veterans mortgage life insurance to individuals 
who have received a grant for specially adapted housing.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $49,850,000 for ``Veterans 
insurance and indemnities''. This is an increase of $3,943,000 
above the fiscal year 2006 enacted level and the same as the 
budget request. The Department estimates there will be 
7,270,907 policies in force in fiscal year 2007 with a value of 
$1,100,182,000,000.

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

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    This appropriation provides for all costs, with the 
exception of the ``Native American veteran housing loan 
program'' and the ``Guaranteed transitional housing loans for 
homeless veterans program'', of the VA's direct and guaranteed 
housing loans, as well as the administrative expenses to carry 
out these programs.
    VA loan guaranties are made to service members, veterans, 
reservists and unremarried surviving spouses for the purchase 
of homes, condominiums, manufactured homes and for refinancing 
loans. VA guarantees part of the total loan, permitting the 
purchaser to obtain a mortgage with a competitive interest 
rate, even without a downpayment, if the lender agrees. The VA 
requires that a downpayment be made for a manufactured home. 
With a VA guaranty, the lender is protected against loss up to 
the amount of the guaranty if the borrower fails to repay the 
loan.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends such sums as may be necessary for 
funding subsidy payments, estimated to total $100,000,000; and 
$153,185,000 for administrative expenses for fiscal year 2007. 
Bill language limits gross obligations for direct loans for 
specially-adapted housing to $500,000.

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

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    This appropriation covers the funding subsidy cost of 
direct loans for vocational rehabilitation of eligible veterans 
and, in addition, it includes administrative expenses necessary 
to carry out the direct loan program. Loans of up to $977 
(based on the indexed chapter 31 subsistence allowance rate) 
are available to service-connected disabled veterans enrolled 
in vocational rehabilitation programs, as provided under 38 
U.S.C. chapter 31, when the veteran is temporarily in need of 
additional assistance. Repayment is made in 10 monthly 
installments, without interest, through deductions from future 
payments of compensation, pension, subsistence allowance, 
educational assistance allowance, or retirement pay. Most loans 
are repaid in full in less than 1 year.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $53,000 for program costs and 
$305,000 for administrative expenses for the ``Vocational 
rehabilitation loans program account''. The administrative 
expenses may be transferred to and merged with the ``General 
operating expenses'' account. Bill language is included 
limiting program direct loans to $4,242,000. It is estimated 
that the VA will make 4,630 loans in fiscal year 2007, with an 
average amount of $728.

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    This program tests the feasibility of enabling VA to make 
direct home loans to Native American veterans who live on U.S. 
trust lands. It is a pilot program that began in 1993 and 
expires on December 31, 2008. Subsidy amounts necessary to 
support this program were appropriated in fiscal year 1993.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $615,000 for administrative 
expenses associated with this program. This is $35,000 above 
the fiscal year 2006 enacted level and the same as the budget 
request.

  GUARANTEED TRANSITIONAL HOUSING LOANS FOR HOMELESS VETERANS PROGRAM 
                                ACCOUNT

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    This program was established by Public Law 105-368, the 
Veterans Programs Enhancement Act of 1998. The program is a 
pilot project designed to expand the supply of transitional 
housing for homeless veterans and to guarantee up to 15 loans 
with a maximum aggregate value of $100,000,000. The project 
must enforce sobriety standards and provide a wide range of 
supportive services such as counseling for substance abuse and 
development of job readiness skills.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    All funds authorized for the ``Guaranteed transitional 
housing loans for homeless veterans program account'' have been 
appropriated. Therefore, additional appropriations are not 
required. Administrative expenses of the program, limited to 
$750,000 for fiscal year 2007, will be borne by the ``Medical 
services'' and ``General operating expenses'' accounts.

                     Veterans Health Administration

Appropriations, 2006.................................... $29,340,517,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................  32,657,000,000
House allowance.........................................  32,695,000,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Department of Veterans Affairs operates the largest 
Federal medical care delivery system in the country, with 156 
hospitals, 43 VA domicilary residential rehabilitation 
treatment programs, 135 nursing homes, and 935 outpatient 
clinics, which include independent, satellite, community-based, 
and rural outreach clinics.
    The Department of Veterans Affairs ``Medical care 
collections fund'' [MCCF] was established by the Balanced 
Budget Act of 1997 (Public Law 105-33). In fiscal year 2004, 
Public Law 108-199 allowed the Department to deposit first-
party and pharmacy co-payments; third-party insurance payments 
and enhanced use collections; long-term care co-payments; 
Compensated Work Therapy Program collections; Compensation and 
Pension Living Expenses Program collections; and Parking 
Program fees into the MCCF.
    The Parking Program provides funds for the construction, 
alteration, and acquisition (by purchase or lease) of parking 
garages at VA medical facilities authorized by 38 U.S.C. 
section 8109. The Secretary is required under certain 
circumstances to establish and collect fees for the use of such 
garages and parking facilities. Receipts from the parking fees 
are to be deposited into the MCCF and are used for medical 
services activities.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $32,670,000,000 for the ``Veterans 
Health Administration'', without collections. This amount is 
composed of $28,689,000,000 for ``Medical services''; 
$3,569,000,000 for ``Medical facilities''; and $412,000,000 for 
``Medical and prosthetic research''. Medical care collections 
are expected to be $2,329,000,000. Therefore, VHA will have 
total resources of $34,999,000,000, plus any carryover from 
fiscal year 2006, available in fiscal year 2007.

                           AREAS OF INTEREST

    HealtheVet-Vista Electronic Health Records.--The Committee 
lauds the VA on its accomplishments with its electronic health 
record system. This premier system sets the standard for 
quality healthcare in both the public and private sectors. 
HealtheVet-Vista, an on-line patient records system, has made 
it possible for physicians and clinicians to have accurate and 
timely access to all relevant information on the veteran's 
health, thus enabling the best healthcare for the veteran. 
HealtheVet-Vista has the potential to revolutionize the 
healthcare system in the United States, and the Committee fully 
supports the VA's efforts in improving the quality of 
healthcare delivery.
    VA-DOD Bi-Directional Health Information Exchange.--
Recently the VA and DOD began live production testing of 
computable pharmacy and allergy data. The Departments of 
Veterans Affairs and Defense achieved the first-ever bi-
directional exchange of standardized and computable pharmacy 
and allergy data in a live patient care environment. Using a 
new jointly developed interface known as ``CHDR'' clinicians 
from the William Beaumont Army Medical Center at Ft. Bliss, 
Texas, and the El Paso VA Healthcare System exchanged pharmacy 
and allergy data on patients who were receiving healthcare from 
both healthcare systems. Production testing also demonstrated 
CHDR's ability to support automatic drug-drug and drug-allergy 
order checking for these same patients. This unprecedented 
achievement is expected to have a significant impact upon the 
ability of VA and DOD to deliver safe, effective care to shared 
patients. The Committee lauds the Department on this 
accomplishment and encourages the Department to continue 
testing this new technology.
    The DOD has now established the Clinical Data Repository in 
El Paso, Texas. The William Beaumont Army Medical Center at 
Fort Bliss hosts a co-located DOD/VA medical facility. To 
enhance the use of this technology, the VA is directed to 
continue the VA/DOD demonstration project at the William 
Beaumont Army Medical Center.
    Traumatic Brain Injury.--The Committee is concerned that a 
growing number of veterans returning from combat operations 
overseas are not being properly screened for Traumatic Brain 
Injury [TBI]. Although TBI clinically presents many of the 
signs and symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder [PTSD], 
these two serious medical conditions require separate and 
distinct treatment programs. The Committee encourages the 
Department of Veterans Affairs, in coordination with the four 
Polytrauma Centers in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Palo Alto, 
California; Richmond, Virginia; and Tampa, Florida, to 
establish a separate education and diagnosis screening program 
for VA medical centers and VET Centers that is distinct from 
current PTSD programs.
    Diabetes.--The Committee is encouraged by the Department's 
work on diabetes and obesity. Twenty percent of the veteran 
population is affected by this disease. The Committee 
encourages the VA to continue this important work and expand on 
its public-private partnerships in the area of nutrition, 
diabetes, obesity and health-oriented research.
    The Committee also recognizes that the technology to 
closely monitor diabetics in patients' homes or daily 
environments is rapidly advancing. These advances depend on the 
reliable collection of accurate blood glucose data from 
patients and coaching feedback to patients.
    The Committee is aware that any solution to home-based 
monitoring of diabetes must be readily accessible, easy to use, 
and as effective as possible in managing veterans' diabetes. 
Because telephones are nearly universally accessible, when 
combined with third generation advanced voice interactive 
protocols, a voice interactive system can provide patients with 
a familiar and readily available management tool that other 
technologies do not. Such technologies combined with patient 
blood glucose data uploads could be especially useful in 
reaching homebound veterans or veterans who live outside of 
urban areas. The Committee encourages the VA to pursue these 
promising interactive technologies.
    Furthermore, the Committee is sensitive to the fact that 
there is no current standard for the transfer of data from 
blood glucose meters to programs in the VA healthcare centers 
via wire or wireless methods. The Committee recommends that the 
VA work with the providers of diabetes monitoring programs to 
establish standards for data transfer between blood glucose 
meters and remote diabetes monitoring programs so that this 
process can be fully tested for the benefit of diabetic 
veterans nationwide.
    Age-Related Hearing Loss.--The Committee recognizes the 
incidence and severity of age-related hearing loss and that 
their associated costs are increasing at dramatic rates. 
Currently, there are no approved therapeutics that either 
prevent or treat age-related hearing loss, a leading cause of 
disability and costs within the VA. The Committee encourages 
the VA to examine and support the development and testing of 
therapeutics aimed at preventing and treating age-related 
hearing loss.
    Advanced Nursing Education.--The Committee urges the VA in 
conjunction with accredited schools of nursing to explore the 
development of a fast track doctoral training program which 
would facilitate completion of a Ph.D. in nursing by qualified 
nurses employed within the VA network who possess their 
bachelor of science in nursing.
    Lung Cancer Screening.--The Committee encourages the 
Secretary of Veterans Affairs to institute a pilot program for 
lung cancer screening, early diagnosis and treatment among high 
risk veteran populations to be coordinated and partnered with 
the International Early Lung Cancer Action Program and its 
member institutions and with the designated sites of the 
National Cancer Institute's Lung Cancer Specialized Programs of 
Research Excellence. The Department shall report back to the 
Committee on Appropriations within 90 days of enactment of this 
act, on a proposal for this program.
    Veterans Affairs Bio-Based Packaging Public Private 
Partnership.--The Congress is interested in encouraging the use 
of bio-based products wherever possible through implementation 
of section 9002 of the 2002 farm bill. The Department shall 
develop a program for the use of bio-based products as part of 
its food service operations, consistent with section 9002 of 
the 2002 farm bill, utilizing bio-based products to the maximum 
extent feasible in facilities where disposable food service 
products are used. The Department shall report to the Congress 
by December 31, 2007, and annually thereafter, on its progress 
in developing and utilizing bio-based food service products, 
cleaning supplies, and other products as may be available in 
its operations, and the cost-savings realized or increases 
incurred as a result of such products.

                            MEDICAL SERVICES

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2006.................................... $25,630,848,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................  28,689,000,000
House allowance.........................................  28,689,000,000
Committee recommendation................................  28,689,000,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The ``Medical services'' account combines programs and 
funding into one account previously appropriated as ``Medical 
services'' and ``Medical administration''.
    The ``Medical services'' account provides for medical 
services of eligible veterans and beneficiaries in VA medical 
centers, outpatient clinic facilities, contract hospitals, 
State homes, and outpatient programs on a fee basis. Hospital 
and outpatient care is also provided by the private sector for 
certain dependents and survivors of veterans under the civilian 
health and medical programs for the VA.
    This account also provides funds for the expenses of 
management, security, and administration of the VA healthcare 
system. This appropriation provides for costs associated with 
the operation of VA medical centers; other facilities; and VHA 
headquarters; plus the costs of VISN offices and facility 
director offices; chief of staff operations; quality of care 
oversight; legal services; billing and coding activities; 
procurement; financial management; human resource management; 
and medical program information technology personnel services, 
travel, and training.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $28,689,000,000 for ``Medical 
services''. This amount is an increase of $3,058,152,000 over 
the fiscal year 2006 enacted level and equal to the budget 
request. In addition, the VA has the authority to retain co-
payments and third-party collections, estimated to total 
$2,329,000,000 in fiscal year 2007.
    The Committee has included bill language to make available 
through September 30, 2008, up to $1,350,000,000 of the 
``Medical services'' appropriation. This provides flexibility 
to the Department of Veterans Affairs as it continues to 
implement significant program changes.
    The bill does not include requested language to allow for 
the transfer of $15,000,000 to the DOD/VA Health Care Sharing 
Incentive Fund. The Committee notes that the Fund has a large 
unobligated balance in its fourth year of existence, and 
additional funds are not recommended at this time.

                           AREAS OF INTEREST

    Centers of Excellence.--Public Law 109-114 created three 
Centers of Excellence specializing in mental health and post-
traumatic stress disorder [PTSD]. These centers could not have 
come at a more appropriate time. A recent DOD questionnaire 
determined many of the OEF/OIF service members are returning 
from the conflict at a high risk for PTSD. The Committee is 
very interested to determine what progress has been made with 
the three centers, Waco VAMC, Texas; San Diego VAMC, 
California; and Canandaigua VAMC, New York, to address mental 
health care, and when these centers will be operational. The VA 
is directed to submit a status report on each of these Centers 
to the Committees of Appropriations of both Houses of Congress 
no later than 60 days following enactment of this act.
    Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.--The Committee 
commends the Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder at the 
White River Junction, VA Medical Center, Vermont. This facility 
has directly benefited VA medical centers across the country, 
as well as numerous other local, State and Federal governmental 
agencies. The Subcommittee encourages the VA to fund the 
Center's budget commensurate with its activities and 
responsibilities.
    Blind Rehabilitative Service.--The VA's Blind 
Rehabilitative Service is known world-wide for its excellence 
in delivering comprehensive blind rehabilitation to our 
Nation's blind veterans at 10 VA Blind Rehabilitation Centers. 
On July, 22, 2004, GAO testified before Congress that more 
outpatient services for blind veterans and better outpatient 
training could better meet the demands of today's blind veteran 
population. Since 1940, the VA has focused its training and 
treatment at inpatient facilities. While the VA should continue 
to support and maintain its inpatient capacity at its Blind 
Rehabilitation Centers, it should also begin to expand its 
treatment for blind veterans through outpatient services closer 
to where veterans live. Within the amount provided in the 
medical services account, the Committee directs the VA to begin 
implementing a plan to expand more outpatient blind 
rehabilitation services and training consistent with the 
recommendations of the GAO report: ``More Outpatient 
Rehabilitation Services for Blind Veterans Could Better Meet 
their Needs'' (GAO-04-996T); the conclusions of the VA's Office 
of Finance and Allocation Resource Center; and the 
recommendations of the VA's Visual Impairment Advisory Board 
[VIAB]. The full continuum of outpatient blind and low vision 
rehabilitation services will include Visual Impairment Services 
Outpatient Rehabilitation [VISOR], Blind Rehabilitation 
Specialists, and Visual Impairment Center to Optimize Remaining 
Site [VICTORS]. Additionally, the Committee is concerned about 
current and future staffing levels of existing and expanded 
programs and directs the VA to report back to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress within 120 days after 
the enactment of this act, the status of the expansion of these 
services and the current and planned staffing levels of both 
inpatient Blind Rehabilitation Centers and the newly 
established outpatient services.
    Readjustment Counseling.--The Committee recognizes the 
increased and ongoing pressures facing military families, and 
believes it is important to take a proactive, preemptive 
approach in helping veterans, particularly those in the 
National Guard and Reserves, and their families adjust to 
deployments and the transition home after the battlefield. Vet 
Centers serve as the front line for many veterans and their 
families. A program has been developed that has been 
successfully utilized by Army families, which focuses on goals, 
family strengthening, and communication as tools to deal with 
stressful situations. The program can be successfully 
facilitated by Vet Center staff and can help veterans and their 
families to deal with both the transition from active duty to 
civilian life and the call up to active duty for National 
Guardsmen and Reservists. The Committee encourages VA to look 
at the DOD program and consider applying it to the veteran 
population.
    G.V. Montgomery National Center for the Study of Veterans' 
Education Policy, Mississippi State University, Mississippi.--
The Committee notes the advent of the G.V. ``Sonny'' Montgomery 
National Center for the Study of Veterans' Education Policy at 
Mississippi State University and encourages the VA to seek out 
opportunities to work with the Center as it goes about the 
important work of research on veterans' education and training 
issues.

                           MEDICAL FACILITIES

Appropriations, 2006....................................  $3,297,669,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................   3,569,000,000
House allowance.........................................   3,594,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   3,569,000,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The ``Medical facilities'' account provides funds for the 
operation and maintenance of the VA healthcare system's vast 
capital infrastructure. This appropriation provides for costs 
associated with utilities, engineering, capital planning, 
leases, laundry and food services, groundskeeping, 
housekeeping, facility repair, and property disposition and 
acquisition.
    The Committee has included bill language to make available 
through September 30, 2008, up to $250,000,000 of the medical 
facilities appropriation. This provision provides flexibility 
to the Department as it continues to implement significant 
program changes.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $3,569,000,000 for ``Medical 
facilities''. This amount is $271,331,000 above the fiscal year 
2006 enacted level and equal to the budget request.
    Community-Based Outpatient Clinics.--The Committee 
continues to support the VA's efforts to provide healthcare 
delivery to veterans in rural areas through its community-based 
outpatient clinics [CBOCs]. The CBOCs play an important role in 
outreach to veterans, Reserves, and Guard forces in areas not 
served by major medical facilities.
    As a result of the direction from the Committee in the 
fiscal year 2006 appropriations conference report (H. Rept. 
109-305) the VA submitted a report on the status of 
establishing Community-Based Outpatient Clinics [CBOCs] in 
locations around the country. While the Committee appreciates 
the update from the VA on the Capital Asset Realignment for 
Enhanced Services [CARES] Initiatives on CBOCs, it remains 
concerned about the VA's ability to open CBOCs in a timely 
fashion. The Committee encourages the VA to place an emphasis 
on opening new CBOCs especially in areas that lack VA primary 
care. Additionally, the Committee encourages the VA to move 
forward establishing clinics in Bellingham and Centralia, 
Washington; Alpena, Michigan; and in rural Colorado. The 
Committee is concerned that some rural areas throughout the 
country lack primary and secondary medical services for their 
veteran population. The Committee encourages the VA to study 
the feasibility of contracting these services in rural areas 
that lack VA inpatient or outpatient facilities or services.
    The Committees directs the VA to submit a report outlining 
the location of the CBOCs opened in fiscal year 2006 and the 
locations planned in fiscal year 2007. This report shall be due 
to the Committees on Appropriations in both Houses of Congress 
within 60 days following enactment of this act.

                    MEDICAL AND PROSTHETIC RESEARCH

Appropriations, 2006....................................    $412,000,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     399,000,000
House allowance.........................................     412,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     412,000,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The ``Medical and prosthetic research'' account provides 
funds for medical, rehabilitative, and health services 
research. Medical research supports basic and clinical studies 
that advance knowledge leading to improvements in the 
prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and 
disabilities. Rehabilitation research focuses on rehabilitation 
engineering problems in the fields of prosthetics, orthotics, 
adaptive equipment for vehicles, sensory aids and related 
areas. Health services research focuses on improving the 
effectiveness and economy of the delivery of health services.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $412,000,000 for ``Medical and 
prosthetic research''. This is equal to the fiscal year 2006 
enacted level and $13,000,000 above the budget request.
    The Committee remains highly supportive of this program, 
and recognizes its importance both in improving healthcare 
services to veterans and recruiting and retaining high-quality 
medical professionals in the Veterans Health Administration.
    Gulf War Illness Research Center of Excellence.--The 
Committee commends the VA for establishing a center of 
excellence devoted to gulf war illness research, at the 
University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center [UTSMC] in 
collaboration with the VA Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. This 
center is the result of the Research Advisory Committee on Gulf 
War Veterans' Illness' [RAC/GWVI] report recommendation to 
develop a comprehensive Federal research plan to address gulf 
war veterans illnesses by adopting a strategic research program 
that identifies and addresses key medical questions. As 
specified in the Joint Explanatory Statement of the Committee 
of Conference accompanying Public Law 109-114 and in accordance 
with RAC's funding recommendation, the Committee directs the 
Department to continue devoting at least $15,000,000 to gulf 
war illness research in this fiscal year and the next 3 years 
through this collaborative center.
    Gulf War Illness Research and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 
[ALS].--Recent studies conducted by the Houston VA Medical 
Center, in conjunction with Baylor College of Medicine, have 
shown gulf war veterans were twice as likely to develop 
amyotrophic lateral schlerosis (ALS, also known as ``Lou 
Gehrig's disease'') than the general population. The Committee 
encourages the VA to continue researching ALS to determine the 
relationship to the high incidence of ALS among our gulf war 
veterans.
    Nursing Research Program.--The Committee encourages 
collaboration between the VA nurses and Tri-Service Nursing 
Research Program award recipients in the exploration of 
research proposals that improve the health and well-being of 
their shared beneficiary population.
    Myeloma Initiative.--Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of the 
plasma cell, a treatable but uncurable disease. The Committee 
understands the VA is working closely with the Multiple Myeloma 
Research Foundation to establish patient education programs to 
inform affected veterans about this rare blood cancer disease 
and the proper treatment. The Committee is highly supportive 
and directs the VA to work with the University of Maryland to 
develop a pilot program on a Tablet PC Patient Education 
System. The Committee envisions this pilot program to test the 
use of Tablet PCs in a minimum of four VA medical facilities.
    Joint Research Initiative.--The Committee understands that 
the Department has been involved in discussions with the 
Israeli Ministry of Defense regarding a number of research 
issues including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, virtual 
reality rehabilitation for motor recovery and ambulatory 
training for veterans with prosthetic limbs, and robotic 
rehabilitation trials for the neurologically impaired and for 
veterans with missing limbs. The Committee is supportive of 
continued discussions regarding the possibility of developing a 
working group composed of the Veterans Health Administration, 
the Israeli Ministry of Defense, clinicians, and researchers 
that would guide collaborative research in these areas.
    Not later than March 1, 2007, the Secretary shall submit to 
the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress a 
report that describes: (1) the ways in which the Department of 
Veterans Affairs and Israel have cooperated on Post Traumatic 
Stress Disorder, virtual reality rehabilitation for motor 
recovery and ambulatory training for veterans with prosthetic 
limbs, and robotic rehabilitation trials for the neurologically 
impaired and for veterans with missing limbs; (2) projects 
initiated; and (3) plans for future cooperation and joint 
projects.
    Parkinson's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.--The Committee 
commends the work of the Parkinson's Disease Research Education 
and Clinical Centers [PADRECCs] and Multiple Sclerosis Centers 
of Excellence [MSCoEs] in the Veterans Health Administration of 
the Department of Veterans Affairs. The six PADRECCs and two 
MSCoEs serve veterans across the entire Veterans Health 
Administration via a nationally coordinated system. These 
centers are the model of innovation in the delivery of highly 
specialized healthcare and research for chronic disease in the 
veteran population. The Committee commends the PADRECCs and 
MSCoEs for conducting clinical and basic science research, 
administering national outreach and education programs, and 
providing state-of-the-art clinical care vital not only to 
veterans, but to the entire Nation. The Committee encourages 
continued support and funding for the Parkinson's Disease 
Research Education and Clinical Centers and Multiple Sclerosis 
Centers of Excellence.
    Longitudinal Study.--In 1984 Congress directed the VA to 
initiate a large-scale survey of the psychiatric and socio-
medical components of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder [PTSD] in 
Vietnam and Vietnam-era veterans. The National Vietnam Veterans 
Readjustment Study [NVVRS] is the largest nationwide 
psychiatric study ever done to date. Only through the NVVRS has 
the American public and medical community become aware of the 
high rates of current and lifetime PTSD, and of the long-term 
consequences of high stress war zone combat exposure. In 2000, 
Congress directed the VA to contract for a follow-up report, 
using the exact same participants, to assess the psychosocial, 
psychiatric, physical, and general well being of these 
individuals. The follow-up report would become a longitudinal 
study of the mortality and morbidity of the participants, and 
draw conclusions as to the long-term effects of service in the 
military and of service in Vietnam in particular. The results 
of the study were to be reported to Congress in 2005, but the 
study has not been executed to date. The results of the study 
would not only help the VA to better understand the long-term 
mental health and social needs of Vietnam veterans, but could 
prepare the VA for the long-term needs of Iraq and Afghanistan 
veterans who are returning in record numbers with PTSD. The 
Committee directs the Department to report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress, within 60 days of 
enactment of this act, on a plan to complete this study, to 
include its legal ability to obtain the original data and the 
anticipated cost of completing the study.
    Educational Outreach Program.--The Committee is aware that 
many veterans who were part of Department of Defense programs 
that conducted chemical and biological warfare testing from 
1962 through 1973, including the program designated as Project 
Shipboard Hazard and Defense [SHAD], are presenting themselves 
to VA medical facilities with unrecognizable or confusing 
medical symptoms. The Committee encourages the Department of 
Veterans Affairs to coordinate with the Department of Defense 
on an educational outreach program to all VA medical facilities 
to educate VA medical professionals regarding the symptoms of 
such testing and services veterans are eligible for pertaining 
to hospital care, medical services, and nursing home care.
    Mental Health/PTSD.--The Committee is aware of the 
significant impact combat stress and its related mental health 
disorders have on the lives of returning soldiers. The 
Committee encourages the Center for Faith-Based and Community 
Initiatives [CFBCI] and the Centers of Excellence for Mental 
Health/PTSD, all VA entities, to work jointly in support of 
faith-based and community organizations assisting veterans 
diagnosed with mental health disorders.

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The National Cemetery Administration was established in 
accordance with Public Law 93-94, the National Cemeteries Act 
of 1973. It has a four-fold mission: To provide for the 
interment in any national cemetery of the remains of eligible 
deceased servicepersons and discharged veterans, together with 
their spouses and certain dependents, and permanently to 
maintain their graves; to provide headstones for, and to mark 
graves of eligible persons in national, State, and private 
cemeteries; to administer the grant program for aid to States 
in establishing, expanding, or improving State veterans' 
cemeteries; and to administer the Presidential Memorial 
Certificate Program.
    There are a total of 158 cemeterial installations in 39 
States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The 
Committee's recommendation for the National Cemetery 
Administration provides funds for all of these cemeterial 
installations.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $160,733,000 for the ``National 
Cemetery Administration''. This is an increase of $4,086,000 
over the fiscal year 2006 enacted level and the same as the 
budget request.
    Pikes Peak Region and El Paso County, Colorado.--The Pikes 
Peak region and El Paso County, Colorado, have 125,000 
veterans. There is no national veterans' cemetery in this 
region of the State. The Committee encourages the Department of 
Veterans Affairs to consider establishing a veterans' cemetery 
in the Pikes Peak region of Colorado.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $1,467,764,000 for ``General 
operating expenses''. This amount is $32,373,000 above the 
fiscal year 2006 enacted level, including supplemental funds, 
and $13,000,000 below the budget request.
    Franchise Fund.--The Franchise Fund was established in 1997 
as a pilot program and made permanent in fiscal year 2006 under 
Public Law 109-114. The Committee directs the Department to 
provide a report on the Franchise Fund's business plan for 
fiscal year 2007. This plan should include a list of services, 
customers, overhead expenses, funds collected for services, and 
the unobligated balance from the previous fiscal year. The VA 
shall submit this report to the Committees on Appropriations in 
both Houses of Congress no later than 60 days following 
enactment of this act.
    Procurement Contracting.--There are possible opportunities 
for the Department to save funds by procuring supplies and 
equipment from vendors not on the General Services 
Administration [GSA] schedule. Therefore, when purchasing these 
items, the Committee urges the Department to review proposals 
from companies both on and off the GSA schedule and make 
decisions based on best value.

\1\ National Cemetery Administration major project requests do not
  1include the purchase of pre-placed crypts, which are funded by the
  Compensation and Pensions appropriation.

    Major Construction Planning.--The Committee is concerned 
about the large number of major construction projects underway. 
There are numerous projects in various stages of completion 
that need additional funding. There are other projects with 
full funding that are behind schedule. The Department has now 
requested additional project funds to begin new projects. While 
the Committee understands the schedule timelines for large 
construction projects, the Department's request for only 
$399,000,000 this year is not consistent with its stated 
construction schedule priority processes. Therefore, the 
Department is directed to submit a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations in both Houses of Congress by April 1, 2007, on 
the Department's entire construction program. This report shall 
contain a list of all projects that have received funding in 
this and previous appropriations acts, specifying total project 
cost, scheduled completion date, reason for delay, if 
applicable, and additional funding needed.
    Orlando, Florida, Medical Care Facility.--In 2004, Congress 
appropriated $25,000,000 for a medical care facility at 
Orlando, Florida. Since then, VA has made no progress on the 
design and construction of this hospital. The Committee directs 
the Department to submit a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations in both Houses of Congress no later than 60 days 
following enactment of this act, on the status of the Orlando, 
Florida, medical care facility project and the reason for the 
delay in construction.
    Beckley, West Virginia, Nursing Home.--The Committee urges 
the Department of Veterans Affairs to include $28,500,000 in 
the President's fiscal year 2008 budget request for the 
construction of a 90-bed nursing home and adult day care center 
at the Beckley Veterans Affairs Medical Center, which was 
listed in the VA's February 2005 Five-Year Capital Plan, 2005-
2010.
    Martinsburg, West Virginia, Veterans Affairs Medical 
Center.--The Committee urges the Department of Veterans Affairs 
to include an amount of $3,560,000 in the President's fiscal 
year 2008 budget request for planning and design work 
associated with the renovation and expansion of the primary, 
mental health, and specialty outpatient care at the Martinsburg 
Veterans Affairs Medical Center, which was listed in the VA's 
February 2005 Five-Year Capital Plan, 2005-2010.
    Relocation of PTSD Program.--Last year, the VA Pacific 
Islands Health Care System [PIHCS] relocated the Post-Traumatic 
Stress Disorder Residential Rehabilitation Program from Hilo to 
temporary space at the Tripler Army Medical Center campus in 
Honolulu, Hawaii. The relocation was intended to consolidate 
and expand existing resources into a single location to allow 
VA PICHS to treat patients with chronic PTSD and acute PTSD, 
including OEF/OIF veterans. However, the temporary space in 
which the program is currently located is inadequate. The 
Committee understands that a permanent relocation project is 
included in the list of VA potential construction projects for 
fiscal year 2007. The Committee encourages VA to find a 
permanent facility in which to house the PTSD Residential 
Rehabilitation Program.
    West Los Angeles, California Veterans Affairs Medical 
Center.--The Committee includes a provision which directs the 
Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs to submit a 
report on the Master Plan for the West Los Angeles Veterans 
Affairs Medical Center and its land. The Committee understands 
that this report was mandated as part of Public Law 105-368, 
yet the Department has not produced the report. Therefore, the 
Committee has included similar language as the original 
requirement. Further, the Committee has included a section 
requiring the VA to allow 120 days after submission of the 
report to the Committees on Appropriations before implementing 
any recommendations made within the report. Additionally, any 
recommendation which does not provide direct services for 
veterans requires approval of the Committees on Appropriations 
of both Houses of Congress before implementation. Nothing 
contained within the provision shall be construed to prevent 
the Department of Veterans Affairs from providing maintenance, 
services, or programs consistent with the mission of the VA.

                      CONSTRUCTION, MINOR PROJECTS

Appropriations, 2006 (including supplemental)...........    $200,737,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     198,000,000
House allowance.........................................     210,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     168,000,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The ``Construction, minor projects'' account provides for 
constructing, altering, extending, and improving any of the 
facilities (including parking) under the jurisdiction or for 
the use of the VA, including planning, CARES activities, 
assessment of needs, architectural and engineering services, 
and site acquisition, where the estimated cost of a project is 
equal to or less than the amount set forth in 38 U.S.C. section 
8104(a)(3)(4). Public Law 106-117, the Veterans Millennium 
Health Care and Benefits Act of 1999, gave the VA the authority 
to make capital contributions from minor construction in 
enhanced-use leases. Proceeds realized from enhanced-use lease 
activities may be deposited into the ``Construction, major 
projects'' and ``Construction, minor projects'' accounts.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $168,000,000 for minor 
construction. This is $32,737,000 below the fiscal year 2006 
enacted level, including supplemental funds, and $30,000,000 
below the budget request.

       GRANTS FOR CONSTRUCTION OF STATE EXTENDED CARE FACILITIES

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $85,000,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      85,000,000
House allowance.........................................     105,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      85,000,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    This account is used to provide grants to assist States in 
acquiring or constructing State home facilities for furnishing 
domiciliary or nursing home care to veterans, and to expand, 
remodel or alter existing buildings for furnishing domiciliary, 
nursing home, or hospital care to veterans in State homes. The 
grant may not exceed 65 percent of the total cost of the 
project. Public Law 102-585 granted permanent authority for 
this program, and Public Law 106-117 provided greater 
specificity in directing VA to prescribe regulations for the 
number of beds for which grant assistance may be furnished. 
This program has been a successful partnership between the 
States and the VA in meeting the long-term care needs of 
elderly veterans for decades.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $85,000,000 for ``Grants for the 
construction of State extended care facilities''. This is the 
same as the fiscal year 2006 enacted level and equal to the 
budget request. This program cost-effectively meets long-term 
healthcare needs of veterans.
    Life and Safety Requirements.--The Committee is extremely 
concerned about the existing State veterans nursing homes cited 
in violation of structural conditions which threaten the life 
and safety of its residents. The VA has the responsibility to 
provide Federal assistance to correct these life and safety 
violations to the best interests and care of our veterans. 
Therefore, the Department shall report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress no later than 60 days 
after enactment of this act on its plan to rectify these 
critical life safety issues.

        GRANTS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF STATE VETERANS CEMETERIES

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $32,000,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      32,000,000
House allowance.........................................      32,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      32,000,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Public Law 105-368, amended title 38 U.S.C. section 2408, 
established authority to provide aid to States for 
establishment, expansion, and improvement of State veterans 
cemeteries which are operated and permanently maintained by the 
States. This statutory change increased the maximum Federal 
share from 50 percent to 100 percent in order to fund 
construction costs and the initial equipment expenses when the 
cemetery is established. The States remain responsible for 
providing the land and for paying all costs related to the 
operation and maintenance of the State cemeteries, including 
the costs for subsequent equipment purchases.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $32,000,000 for ``Grants for the 
construction of State veterans cemeteries''. This is the same 
as the fiscal year 2006 enacted level and equal to the budget 
request.

                     INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SYSTEMS

Appropriations, 2006....................................  $1,213,820,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................   1,257,000,000
House allowance.........................................   1,302,330,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,255,900,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Information Technology Systems account was established 
in Public Law 109-114. The account encompasses the entire non-
pay information technology portfolio for the Department of 
Veterans Affairs, including all automation efforts in all 
administrations.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $1,255,900,000 for ``Information 
technology systems'' [IT]. This amount is $42,080,000 above the 
fiscal year 2006 enacted level and $1,100,000 below the budget 
request.
    The recommended amount reflects a decrease of $1,100,000 
which is transferred to the Office of Inspector General for 
information technology systems.
    Personnel Cost.--When the personnel associated cost for IT 
maintenance and operations support is moved under the purview 
of the CIO, the Department may elect to move funding under such 
a heading to this ``Information technology systems'' account.
    Information Security.-- The Committee is deeply concerned 
with the vulnerabilities in the VA's information technology and 
security system which leaves our veterans' personal data 
information at high risk for fraud and identity theft. For the 
past 4 years, the Inspector General cited in his reports the 
``VA's systems remain vulnerable to unauthorized access and 
misuse of sensitive information and data,'' yet the VA did not 
take positive steps to rectify this. As the second largest 
department in the Federal Government, the VA is responsible to 
maintain and protect the data for millions of veterans' 
personal, financial, and medical data information. The VA 
cannot continue to operate with an information security program 
which does not secure its veterans' data information. The 
Committee directs the VA to report to the Committees on 
Appropriations in both Houses of Congress no later than 
December 30, 2006, on the measures the VA is taking to secure 
its database from employee downloading or copying sensitive 
information.
    Information Technology System Reorganization.--In fiscal 
year 2006, the Committees directed the Secretary of the VA to 
reorganize the program office's information technology systems 
into one office with the authority to manage the entire IT 
portfolio. The congressional intent for the VA IT 
reorganization was to produce a coordinated, systematic, and 
efficient information technology portfolio management system. 
The Committee directs the VA to provide a report to the 
Committees on Appropriations in both Houses of Congress within 
60 days following the enactment of this act, on the current 
status of funds and the related progress on organizing this IT 
oversight program.
    E-Gov Initiatives.--This bill does not contain any funding 
for the E-Gov initiatives as specified in the administration's 
request. The Committee is not convinced these initiatives add 
value to the Department of Veterans Affairs. From fiscal year 
2005 to fiscal year 2006, the VA's E-Gov obligations increased 
by 60.31 percent. For fiscal year 2007, VA's E-Gov request 
increases by 5.93 percent over the fiscal year 2006 enacted 
level, from $10,768,000 to $11,407,000. The Committee is 
concerned the funds needed for this program are growing at an 
alarming rate, while the utility to the VA is taking the 
opposite track. Future budget request for E-Gov initiatives 
should include a detailed explanation of how they directly 
benefit the Department of Veterans Affairs.
    Financial and Logistics Integrated Technology Enterprise 
[FLITE].--The VA is at the beginning stages of developing its 
financial and logistics integrated technology enterprise 
[FLITE] system. The VA needs a comprehensive accounting and 
financial management system as mandated by the Chief Financial 
Officers Act of 1990. The Committee is pleased to see the VA is 
approaching FLITE in incremental steps and is more vigilant 
over cost and performance by contractors. The Committee expects 
the VA to benefit from lessons learned by the preceding 
project. It is imperative the VA has complete oversight of a 
contractor's work and enforces any requirements if the 
contractor fails to deliver in a timely and cost effective 
manner. In the final stages of development, the VA must provide 
quality training to its employees if it expects quality outcome 
delivered from this system. The Committee directs the VA to 
submit a semi-annual progress report on FLITE to the Committees 
on Appropriations in both Houses of Congress until this project 
reaches completion.
    Automated Collateral Management System.--The Committee 
encourages the Department to consider implementing a national 
automated collateral management/appraisal management system. 
Such a system would greatly increase the efficiency of loan 
origination appraisals.
    Regional Data Center Consolidation.--The VA is undergoing a 
regional data center consolidation effort to decrease 
maintenance cost on their key applications. The VISN 
headquarters in Jackson, Mississippi, is an ideal location for 
a regional center. As the VA continues to evaluate locations

                  AMERICAN BATTLE MONUMENTS COMMISSION

                          Program Description

    The American Battle Monuments Commission [ABMC] is 
responsible for the following: the maintenance and construction 
of U.S. monuments and memorials commemorating the achievements 
in battle of our Armed Forces since April 1917 (the date of the 
United States entry into World War I); the erection of 
monuments and markers by U.S. citizens and organizations in 
foreign countries; and the design, construction, and 
maintenance of permanent military cemetery memorials in foreign 
countries. The Commission maintains 24 military memorial 
cemeteries and 25 monuments, memorials, and markers in 15 
countries around the world, including three memorials on U.S. 
soil. It is presently charged with erecting an Interpretive 
Center at the Normandy American Cemetery, Normandy, France.

                         Salaries and Expenses

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $35,888,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      35,838,000

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $37,088,000 for the ``Salaries and 
expenses'' account. This amount is $1,200,000 above the fiscal 
year 2006 enacted level and $1,250,000 above the budget 
request.
    Normandy Interpretive Center.--Within this amount, the 
Committee recommends funding for initial staffing of guides, 
security and maintenance personnel for the Center. Public Law 
107-73 funded the design of an Interpretive Center at the 
American Cemetery in Normandy, France. The Center will tell the 
story of the 9,386 American soldiers buried and 1,557 missing 
in action at Normandy. Groundbreaking was held on August 28, 
2004, with the official opening scheduled for June 6, 2007.
    Point du Hoc.--The Committee fully supports the 
Commission's effort to preserve the World War II Ranger 
Monument located at Point du Hoc. This monument is a tribute to 
sacrifices made by the Army Rangers during the D-Day invasion 
at Normandy, France, and must be preserved as a reminder to the 
world of what happened that day. The Committee understands the 
sensitive nature of this project and has included funds to 
ensure the Commission has sufficient resources to accomplish 
this mission.
    The bill does not include funds for payments to the State 
Department's Capital Security Cost Sharing Program.

the euro to meet the increased operating needs of its sites in 
Europe.

to be arbitrary or capricious. The Court's principle office 
location is Washington, District of Columbia; however, it is a 
national court, empowered to sit anywhere in the United States.
