                        Reprogramming Guidelines

    The Committee has revised the reprogramming guidelines to 
add an exception for certain Environmental Protection Agency 
grants (section 3(b)) and to delete certain instructions to the 
Forest Service dealing with boundary adjustments and transfer 
of funds.
    The following are the procedures governing reprogramming 
actions for programs and activities funded in the Interior, 
Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act:
    1. Definition.--``Reprogramming,'' as defined in these 
procedures, includes the reallocation of funds from one budget 
activity to another. In cases where either the House or Senate 
Committee report displays an allocation of an appropriation 
below the activity level, that more detailed level shall be the 
basis for reprogramming. For construction accounts, a 
reprogramming constitutes the reallocation of funds from one 
construction project (identified in the justification or 
Committee report) to another. A reprogramming shall also 
consist of any significant departure from the program described 
in the agency's budget justifications. This includes proposed 
reorganizations even without a change in funding.
    2. Guidelines for Reprogramming.--(a) A reprogramming 
should be made only when an unforeseen situation arises; and 
then only if postponement of the project or the activity until 
the next appropriation year would result in actual loss or 
damage. Mere convenience or desire should not be factors for 
consideration.
    (b) Any project or activity, which may be deferred through 
reprogramming, shall not later be accomplished by means of 
further reprogramming; but, instead, funds should again be 
sought for the deferred project or activity through the regular 
appropriations process.
    (c) Reprogramming should not be employed to initiate new 
programs or to change allocations specifically denied, limited 
or increased by the Congress in the Act or the report. In cases 
where unforeseen events or conditions are deemed to require 
changes, proposals shall be submitted in advance to the 
Committee, regardless of amounts involved, and be fully 
explained and justified.
    (d) Reprogramming proposals submitted to the Committee for 
approval shall be considered approved 30 calendar days after 
receipt if the Committee has posed no objection. However, 
agencies will be expected to extend the approval deadline if 
specifically requested by either Committee.
    (e) Proposed changes to estimated working capital fund 
bills and estimated overhead charges, deductions, reserves or 
holdbacks, as such estimates were presented in annual budget 
justifications, shall be submitted through the reprogramming 
process.
    3. Criteria and Exceptions.--Any proposed reprogramming 
must be submitted to the Committee in writing prior to 
implementation if it exceeds $500,000 annually or results in an 
increase or decrease of more than 10 percent annually in 
affected programs, with the following exceptions:
    (a) With regard to the tribal priority allocations activity 
of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Operations of Indian Programs 
account, there is no restriction on reprogrammings among the 
programs within this activity. However, the Bureau shall report 
on all reprogrammings made during the first 6 months of the 
fiscal year by no later than May 1 of each year, and shall 
provide a final report of all reprogrammings for the previous 
fiscal year by no later than November 1 of each year.
    (b) With regard to the Environmental Protection Agency, 
State and Tribal Assistance Grants account, reprogramming 
requests associated with States and Tribes applying for 
partnership grants do not need to be submitted to the Committee 
for approval should such grants exceed the normal reprogramming 
limitations. In addition, the Agency need not submit a request 
to move funds between wastewater and drinking water objectives 
for those grants targeted to specific communities.
    4. Quarterly Reports.--(a) All reprogrammings shall be 
reported to the Committee quarterly and shall include 
cumulative totals.
    (b) Any significant shifts of funding among object 
classifications also should be reported to the Committee.
    5. Administrative Overhead Accounts.--For all 
appropriations where costs of overhead administrative expenses 
are funded in part from ``assessments'' of various budget 
activities within an appropriation, the assessments shall be 
shown in justifications under the discussion of administrative 
expenses.
    6. Contingency Accounts.--For all appropriations where 
assessments are made against various budget activities or 
allocations for contingencies the Committee expects a full 
explanation, as part of the budget justification, consistent 
with section 405 of this Act. The explanation shall show the 
amount of the assessment, the activities assessed, and the 
purpose of the fund. The Committee expects reports each year 
detailing the use of these funds. In no case shall a fund be 
used to finance projects and activities disapproved or limited 
by Congress or to finance new permanent positions or to finance 
programs or activities that could be foreseen and included in 
the normal budget review process. Contingency funds shall not 
be used to initiate new programs.
    7. Report Language.--Any limitation, directive, or 
earmarking contained in either the House or Senate report which 
is not contradicted by the other report nor specifically denied 
in the conference report shall be considered as having been 
approved by both Houses of Congress.
    8. Assessments.--No assessments shall be levied against any 
program, budget activity, subactivity, or project funded by the 
Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act 
unless such assessments and the basis therefore are presented 
to the Committees on Appropriations and are approved by such 
Committees, in compliance with these procedures.
    9. Land Acquisitions and Forest Legacy.--Lands shall not be 
acquired for more than the approved appraised value (as 
addressed in section 301(3) of Public Law 91-646) except for 
condemnations and declarations of taking, unless such 
acquisitions are submitted to the Committees on Appropriations 
for approval in compliance with these procedures.
    10. Land Exchanges.--Land exchanges, wherein the estimated 
value of the Federal lands to be exchanged is greater than 
$500,000, shall not be consummated until the Committees on 
Appropriations have had a 30-day period in which to examine the 
proposed exchange.
    11. Appropriations Structure.--The appropriation structure 
for any agency shall not be altered without advance approval of 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations.

                  TITLE I--DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

                        LAND AND WATER RESOURCES

                       Bureau of Land Management

    The Bureau of Land Management is charged with administering 
for multiple uses 262 million acres of public land concentrated 
in 12 western States, as well as 700 million acres of 
federally-owned sub-surface mineral rights. Minerals, timber, 
rangeland, fish and wildlife, wilderness and recreation are 
among the resources and activities managed by BLM.
    Recent increases in energy production and recreation visits 
have placed an even greater stress on the Bureau's multiple use 
mandate, but great strides are being made to address the needs 
of an ever-growing U.S. population.
    In 2006 over 68 million visitors are expected to 
participate in recreational activities on public lands. This 
influx of visitors necessitates ongoing investments in the 
Bureau's planning, recreation management, facilities 
construction and law enforcement programs.
    In addition, the Bureau is tasked with managing programs 
involving the mineral industry, utility companies, ranchers, 
the timber industry, and the conservation and research 
communities. In 2006, it is estimated that public lands will 
generate $5,000,000,000 in revenues, the bulk of this amount 
coming from ongoing energy development. BLM will collect an 
estimated $1,348,000,000 in revenue from the sale of land and 
materials, grazing fees, timber sales, and recreation use and 
filing fees. Additionally, the Bureau's onshore mineral leasing 
activities are expected to generate $3,600,000,000 in receipts. 
Of the revenues generated on public lands, approximately 39 
percent is provided directly to States and counties to support 
roads, schools, and community needs.

                    MANAGEMENT OF LAND AND RESOURCES

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $836,826,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     850,177,000
House allowance.........................................     845,783,000
Committee recommendation................................     867,045,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $867,045,000, 
an increase of $30,219,000 over the enacted level, an increase 
of $16,868,000 over the budget request, and $21,262,000 over 
the House recommendation. The funding amounts described below 
are at the activity level. Additional details on funding for 
sub-activities within the various appropriations accounts for 
the Bureau are set out in a table in the back of the report.
    Land Resources.--The Committee recommends $188,963,000 for 
land resources, which is an increase of $2,000,000 above the 
request. Increases above the request include $1,000,000 to 
continue work at the National Center for Invasive Plant 
Management; and $1,000,000 for the Idaho Department of 
Agriculture to provide coordination, facilitation, 
administrative support, and cost-shared weed control project 
funding to Cooperative Weed Management Areas. The Committee 
also notes $600,000 is included for the Rio Puerco Watershed 
project, and prior instruction to facilitate cooperative 
monitoring shall continue.
    The Committee notes the budget request's suggested 
elimination of the Mandatory Range Improvements Account. The 
Committee does not support this action and expects the 
discretionary funds identified in the request to replace the 
Mandatory Account be retained for the range related projects as 
proposed and any excess funds be used to support cooperative 
monitoring activities.
    The Committee has included further direction regarding 
grazing permit stocking levels and the acceptance of third 
party range monitoring under the Forest Service's account for 
grazing management.
    The Committee directs the Bureau to retain its current 
level of support for the National Conservation Training Center, 
and directs that funds shall be made available to NCTC within 
60 days of enactment.
    The Committee is aware of the current cooperation between 
the Bureau and the National Wild Horse Association in Nevada. 
The Committee encourages the continuation of this collaborative 
effort and would urge the Bureau to give serious consideration 
to funding the Association's pilot adoption program.
    Wildlife and Fisheries Management.--The Committee 
recommends $41,084,000 for wildlife and fisheries management, 
which is equal to the request. This amount includes $3,604,000 
for additional sage grouse conservation efforts as proposed by 
the administration. The Committee applauds the Bureau's ongoing 
commitment to address the loss of sagebrush habitat and 
associated impacts to sage grouse. The Bureau is expected to 
continue pursuing cooperative agreements with States and other 
entities to ensure the increased funding in the budget request 
is spent as efficiently as possible. The Bureau is also 
encouraged to work with the National Fish and Wildlife 
Foundation to implement these measures.
    Threatened and Endangered Species.--The Committee 
recommends $21,572,000 for threatened and endangered species 
management, which is equal to the request.
    Recreation Management.--The Committee recommends 
$65,604,000 for recreation management, which is an increase of 
$1,000,000 over the request and $5,015,000 above the enacted 
level. Wilderness Management and Recreation Operations are 
funded at the request level. The Committee fully supports the 
administration's addition of $3,693,000 to enhance recreational 
experiences and access to Bureau properties. Support for the 
Undaunted Stewardship program is provided at $1,000,000 above 
the request level.
    Energy and Minerals Management Including Alaska Minerals.--
The Committee has provided $109,772,000 for energy and minerals 
management, which is an increase of $3,000,000 above the 
request and $3,141,000 above the enacted level. Increases to 
the request include $3,000,000 for Oil and Gas Management. 
Within the increase, the Bureau is expected to provide $250,000 
for the Utah Oil and Gas Leasing Internet Pilot program, begin 
planning for an Oil Shale Leasing program, and continue 
focusing on timely processing of APDs.
    The Committee has also provided $3,000,000 for the Alaska 
minerals program, which is an increase of $703,000 above the 
request and $944,000 below the 2005 enacted level.
    The Committee strongly believes U.S. oil shale development 
has the potential to reduce America's growing dependence on 
unstable sources of foreign oil imports, and that development 
should be accelerated in light of recent technological advances 
illustrating the viability of oil shale as a cost effective 
energy source. The Committee notes the Secretary of the 
Interior, through existing and ongoing funded authorities under 
Section 21 of the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920, is currently 
authorized to develop and implement a Federal commercial oil 
shale leasing program. As referenced above, the Committee 
expects the Secretary to begin planning for such a leasing 
program, and believes it is appropriate in the interim to 
expedite the placement of Research and Development activities 
on BLM land with management plans addressing and supporting oil 
shale development to further test methods of production.
    Realty and Ownership Management.--The Committee recommends 
$91,707,000 for realty and ownership management, which is an 
increase of $10,561,000 above the request. Increases above the 
request include $8,401,000 for the Alaska Conveyance program; 
$300,000 for GIS/Cadastral mapping in Utah; $750,000 for the 
processing of recordable disclaimer applications in Alaska; 
$160,000 for soil survey mapping in Wyoming; and $950,000 for 
ongoing Cadastral mapping in Montana.
    The Committee continues to support the Bureau's work to 
implement the various realty actions included in the Clark 
County Act (Public Law 107-282).
    Resource Protection and Maintenance.--The Committee 
recommends $85,216,000 for resource protection and maintenance, 
which is $1,600,000 above the request.
    The Committee notes that the administration's request of 
$1,000,000 in additional funding for law enforcement is largely 
reserved for activities in the Southwest. Due to increasing 
visitation on National Landscape Conservation System lands the 
Committee has provided an additional $1,600,000. The Committee 
expects these funds to be used in Montana, Colorado, 
California, and Arizona. Due to the administration's focus on 
the Southwest, the additional funds shall first be focused on 
fully meeting needs in Montana and Colorado with remaining 
funds supporting other portions of the NLCS across the West.
    Transportation and Facilities Maintenance.--The Committee 
recommends $78,291,000 for transportation and facilities 
maintenance, which is $2,000,000 above the request. $1,000,000 
of the increase is to continue capping of oil wells in the 
National Petroleum Reserve to prevent leakage and oil spills 
and $1,000,000 is to support activities on the Pacific Crest, 
Continental Divide and Iditarod trails.
    Land and Information Systems.--The Committee recommends 
$18,217,000 for land and information systems, which is equal to 
the request.
    Mining Law Administration.--The Committee recommends 
$32,696 for mining law administration, which is equal to the 
request.
    Workforce Organization and Support.--The Committee 
recommends $147,619,000 for workforce organization and support 
equal to the request.
    Challenge Cost Share.--The Committee has provided 
$10,000,000 for the challenge cost share program; $3,996,000 
below the request level. Additionally the Committee agrees to 
the request level of $6,000,000 for the Cooperative 
Conservation Initiative.

                        WILDLAND FIRE MANAGEMENT

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $831,295,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     756,564,000
House allowance.........................................     761,564,000
Committee recommendation................................     766,564,000

    The Committee recommends a total appropriation of 
$766,564,000 for wildland fire management activities, which is 
$64,731,000 below the enacted level, $10,000,000 above the 
request, and $5,000,000 over the House allowance.
    The Committee retains the current budget structure and 
recommends $272,852,000 for fire preparedness, which is equal 
to the request.
    The Committee also recommends a total of $234,167,000 for 
fire suppression activities, which is equal to the request.
    The Committee's recommendation includes $259,545,000 for 
Other Fire Operations, which is $10,000,000 above the request. 
The amount above the request is for the Rural Fire Assistance 
program. Funding for the National Center for Landscape Fire 
Analysis shall remain at or above the fiscal year 2005 enacted 
level of $1,500,000.
    The Committee is dismayed by the budget request's proposal 
to eliminate the Rural Fire Assistance program. Often, rural 
fire departments are the first responders to fires on Federal 
lands, facing great risk and expense to battle these fires. The 
administration suggests other programs will fill the void left 
in the wake of this program's cancellation, but further 
analysis shows the other accounts suggested are also slated for 
large programmatic cuts in the request. The Committee has 
restored funding for this program and suggests that future 
action to reduce the program will be met with action by the 
Committee to restore funding directly from the administration's 
top priorities.

                              CONSTRUCTION

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $11,340,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................       6,476,000

Committee recommendation................................       9,976,000

    The Committee recommends $9,976,000 for construction, which 
is $1,364,000 below the fiscal year 2005 level, an increase of 
$3,500,000 above the request, and $1,500,000 below the House 
allowance. Increases above the request include: $1,500,000 for 
the Sand Hollow Recreation area pursuant to the MOU with the 
State of Utah; $450,000 for the Paiute Meadows Trail project in 
Nevada; and $1,550,000 to address critical projects identified 
in the Bureau's 5-year construction plan.

                            LAND ACQUISITION

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $11,192,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      13,350,000

Committee recommendation................................      12,250,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $12,250,000 
for land acquisition, an increase of $1,058,000 over the 
enacted level, a decrease of $1,100,000 below the budget 
estimate, and $8,433,000 over the House recommendation.
    The following table shows the Committee's recommendations:

                      FISH AND WILDLIFE AND PARKS


                     U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the principal Federal 
agency responsible for conserving, protecting and enhancing 
fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats. The Service 
manages the 95 million acre National Wildlife Refuge System, 
which encompasses 544 national wildlife refuges, thousands of 
small wetlands and other special management areas. It also 
operates 69 national fish hatcheries, 63 fish and wildlife 
management offices and 81 ecological services field stations. 
The Agency enforces Federal wildlife laws, administers the 
Endangered Species Act, manages migratory bird populations, 
restores nationally significant fisheries, conserves and 
restores wildlife habitat such as wetlands, and helps foreign 
governments with their conservation efforts. It also oversees 
the Federal Assistance program, which distributes hundreds of 
millions of dollars in excise taxes on fishing and hunting 
equipment to State fish and wildlife agencies.

    Ecological Services.--The Committee recommends $254,613,000 
for ecological services which is $4,040,000 above the request. 
The Committee recommends an increase of $500,000 for the 
candidate conservation program which shall be distributed to 
the Idaho Sage Grouse management plan through the Idaho Office 
of Species Conservation.
    The Committee recommends $18,130,000 for the listing 
program, which is equal to the request, and $49,484,000 for the 
consultation program also equal to the request. The Committee 
has not continued bill language concerning the Natural 
Communities Conservation Planning project in California, but 
notes that this project is eligible to compete for funds from 
the Section 6 Habitat Conservation Planning Grants program 
through the Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund.
    The Committee recommends $72,541,000 for the recovery 
program which is $8,298,000 above the request. Increases above 
the request are $982,000 to restore funding for the Platte 
River recovery project, $691,000 to restore funding for the 
Upper Colorado River fish recovery project, $1,114,000 for 
implementation of the Yellowstone Grizzly Bear Conservation 
Strategy, $500,000 for the Lahontan cutthroat trout, $1,202,000 
for wolf recovery efforts for a total of $1,500,000 for this 
activity, $1,000,000 for the Penobscot River restoration 
project, $1,000,000 for Atlantic salmon recovery activities 
administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, and 
$1,800,000 for the eider and sea otter recovery work at the 
Alaska SeaLife Center. Of the funds provided for wolf recovery, 
$350,000 is for the Nez Perce Tribe, $730,000 is for the Idaho 
Office of Species Conservation, $100,000 is for the Service's 
Snake River Basin office pursuant to a memorandum of agreement 
between the Nez Perce Tribe and the State of Idaho, and 
$320,000 is for wolf monitoring and related activities by the 
State of Montana.
    Within the funds provided for recovery, the Committee 
recommends $400,000 for the Peregrine Fund.
    The Committee supports the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service 
and other Department of the Interior investments in Whooping 
Crane recovery particularly for the captive rearing of cranes 
for reintroduction and for logistical, biological and habitat 
support. The current Whooping Crane re-introduction in the 
Eastern United States is a landmark in endangered species 
recovery. The Service should continue to support these efforts, 
which contribute to successful implementation of recovery 
priorities.
    The Committee recommends $94,805,000 for habitat 
conservation, a decrease of $7,173,000 from the budget request. 
The Committee recommends $44,474,000 for the partners for fish 
and wildlife program, a decrease of $7,723,000 below the 
request. Decreases from the request include a general program 
decrease of $11,966,000, and a decrease of $3,272,000 for the 
Upper Klamath Basin effort. Increases above the request include 
$700,000 for the Big Hole Watershed restoration project in 
Montana, $500,000 for the Montana Water Center for the Wild 
Fish Habitat Initiative, $1,250,000 for the Nevada Biodiversity 
Research and Conservation Project, $100,000 for bald eagle 
restoration work performed in cooperation with the Vermont 
Natural Heritage Partners Program, $1,400,000 for spartina 
control at Willapa Bay, $540,000 for conservation work at the 
Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge, $1,000,000 for the 
Wildlife Enterprises program at Mississippi State University, 
$250,000 for the Thunder Basin Initiative project in Wyoming, 
$100,000 for invasive species control work by the friends of 
Lake Sakakawea, $550,000 for endangered bird conservation work 
in Hawaii in cooperation with the Zoological Society of San 
Diego, $500,000 to continue Geographic Information System 
mapping of the National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska by a non-
governmental organization that has a proven system of land 
cover products in Alaska and high expertise in forest cover and 
wetlands, $200,000 for a hydrology study on the Lower Colorado 
River, and $425,000 for the completion of a study on declining 
wildlife populations on the Lake Umbagog National Wildlife 
Refuge in cooperation with the New Hampshire Audubon Society.
    The Committee recommends $30,654,000 for project planning, 
$550,000 above the request. The increase is for the Middle Rio 
Grande (Bosque) Research program.
    The Committee recommends $14,900,000 for coastal programs 
which is equal to the request.
    The Committee recommends $4,777,000 for the national 
wetlands inventory which is equal to the request.
    The Committee has provided $10,901,000 for the 
environmental contaminants program, which is equal to the 
enacted level. The Committee directs the Service to work with 
the Environmental Protection Agency to incorporate trustee 
concerns during Superfund remediation and to enhance the 
integration of Superfund remedial activities and natural 
resource damage assessment activities.
    Refuges and Wildlife.--The Committee recommends 
$491,708,000 for refuges and wildlife, a decrease of $1,433,000 
below the request.
    The Committee has provided a total of $393,894,000 for the 
National Wildlife Refuge System which is equal to the request. 
Within this amount, $246,807,000 is for refuge operations and 
$137,687,000 is for maintenance. The Committee approves of the 
Service's budget restructuring proposal for refuge operations 
activities but expects the Service to continue to identify as a 
separate line item the amount proposed for refuge maintenance.
    The Committee recommendation for refuges and wildlife 
includes a total of $9,400,000 for the challenge cost share 
program. Of this amount, $4,400,000 is for the traditional cost 
share program and $5,000,000 is for the Cooperative 
Conservation Initiative grant program.
    The Committee understands that the Fish and Wildlife 
Service relies extensively on information compiled by 
NatureServe, particularly biological information which it 
gathers through the State Heritage Network. This has proven to 
be an effective means to collect data that furthers the mission 
of the Service as well as other Departmental agencies. In order 
to maintain the quality of this information, the Committee 
expects that the Service will work cooperatively with 
NatureServe and make additional funds available if necessary 
from programs such as the CCI initiative to ensure that 
sufficient funds are available to maintain adequately the 
integrity of this important inventory information.
    The Committee is aware that a number of refuges such as 
Clark's River in KY, and Don Edwards in CA, have grown 
substantially in recent years due to large land acquisitions by 
the Service. The Committee strongly encourages the agency to 
review base budgets for these refuges in light of the 
additional management responsibilities caused by the 
significant increase in the number of refuge acres under the 
Service's jurisdiction.
    The Committee has provided $40,202,000 for migratory bird 
management which is $1,433,000 below the request. The decrease 
is for the proposed new joint ventures. Given tight budget 
constraints, the Committee cannot provide these additional 
funds this fiscal year. The Committee expects that funds for 
the existing joint ventures will be distributed consistent with 
documents provided to the Committee by the Service.
    The Committee has provided $57,612,000 for law enforcement 
which is equal to the request. The Committee is concerned with 
certain reductions proposed in the request for the ports of 
entry at Louisville, Memphis, and Atlanta. The Committee is 
aware that some of the funds provided last year for these ports 
represented one-time start-up costs, but it is the Committee's 
expectation that the operational capability at each of these 
Ports shall be maintained at a level consistent with fiscal 
year 2005. If the level of funding proposed in the budget 
request is insufficient to meet this operational level, the 
Committee directs that additional funds be reprogrammed within 
the law enforcement account. The Service shall notify the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 30 days of 
enactment of this Act whether funds must be reprogrammed for 
this purpose.
    Fisheries.--The Committee recommends $111,808,000 for 
fisheries, an increase of $4,152,000 above the budget request.
    For hatchery operations and maintenance, the Committee 
recommends $57,971,000 which is equal to the request. The 
Committee expects that at this funding level no hatcheries will 
be closed or placed in caretaker status.
    The Committee recommends $53,837,000 for fish and wildlife 
management which is $4,152,000 above the request. Increases 
above the request are $102,000 for aquatic nuisance control, 
$1,400,000 to combat whirling disease and related fish health 
issues, of which $1,000,000 is for the National Partnership on 
the Management of Wild and Native Coldwater Fisheries and 
$400,000 is for the Whirling Disease Foundation, $250,000 is 
for the regional mark processing center, and $500,000 is for 
the Wildlife Health Center in Montana. There is a general 
decrease of $300,000.
    The Committee recommends a total of $4,685,000 for marine 
mammals which is an increase of $2,200,000 above the request. 
The increases are $1,200,000 to continue marine mammal 
protection work in Alaska through cooperative agreements with 
various marine mammal commissions, and $1,000,000 to continue 
population assessments on marine mammal stocks in Alaska.
    The Committee remains concerned by the recent discoveries 
of the northern snakehead in the Potomac River and its 
potential impact on native fish populations through predation, 
food and habitat competition, or the introduction of diseases 
and parasites. The Committee directs the U.S. Fish and Wildlife 
Service to continue sampling activities in the Potomac River 
and its tributaries that are important for determining the 
distribution of the species, and the potential application of 
control and management strategies.
    General Administration.--The Committee recommends 
$135,356,000 for general administration, which is $1,163,000 
above the request. Changes from the request include a decrease 
of $2,000,000 for the science excellence initiative, and 
increases of $1,625,000 to offset partially the proposed 
administrative efficiencies reduction which was not adequately 
explained or justified, $291,000 to restore funding for the 
National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, $250,000 for enhanced 
training activities at the National Conservation Training 
Center [NCTC], and $397,000 to restore cuts to maintenance 
activities at NCTC.
    The Committee recommends $10,149,000 for international 
affairs which is $600,000 above the request. The increase above 
the request is to restore the Wildlife Without Borders program 
to the enacted level. Within the funds provided for 
international affairs, no less than $700,000 is for the Caddo 
Lake Ramsar Center in Texas.

    The Committee remains concerned about reported poor and 
unsafe conditions in the research facilities and office 
buildings at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center and Patuxent 
Research Refuge. In the Conference Report to accompany the 
fiscal 2004 Interior Appropriations bill (H. Rept. 108-330) and 
in the Senate report to accompany the fiscal 2005 bill (S. 
Rept. 108-341), the Committee underscored its expectation that 
the FWS and USGS develop a plan and budget for the 
rehabilitation or replacement of facilities and to resolve any 
jurisdictional issues between the agencies. To date, the 
Department has not submitted such a plan or budget and the 
Committee understands that there has been no final resolution 
of the jurisdictional issues. The Committee expects the 
Secretary of the Interior to complete a facilities and budget 
plan by not later than March 1, 2006, which identifies the 
priorities, schedule, funding requirements, phasing options and 
agencies responsible for the repair, rehabilitation or 
replacement of facilities, buildings and associated 
infrastructure at the Center and Refuge.

program at the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge, 
and notes that these funds have frequently been complemented by 
section 6 grants for the Balcones Canyonlands Habitat 
Conservation Plan. The Committee urges the Service to continue 
its support for this effort.
    The Committee is disappointed by the Service's failure to 
approve a proposed boundary expansion for the James Campbell 
National Wildlife Refuge on the North Shore of Oahu. The 
proposed expansion would join two physically separated sections 
of the refuge, and include one of Oahu's last remaining intact 
native coastal habitats, while providing flood control for 
neighboring communities. The Committee expects the Service to 
provide funding for this expansion should it be authorized.
    Within funds provided for the Silvio Conte NWR, not less 
than $500,000 is for the Pondicherry Division.
    Within funds provided for Acquisition management $500,000 
is for an environmental impact statement [EIS] of the proposed 
Yukon Flats land exchange between Doyon Ltd. and the United 
States Fish and Wildlife Service.

                         National Park Service

    Since the creation of Yellowstone National Park in 1872, 
the national park system has grown to encompass 388 sites 
spanning more than 84,000,000 acres in 49 States, the District 
of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Saipan, and the 
Virgin Islands. The National Park Service, created in 1916, is 
charged with preserving these sites ``unimpaired for the 
enjoyment of future generations.'' The Service and its more 
than 20,000 employees also contribute to the protection of 
other historical, cultural and recreational resources through a 
variety of grant and technical assistance programs.

                 OPERATION OF THE NATIONAL PARK SYSTEM

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $1,683,564,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   1,734,053,000
House allowance.........................................   1,754,199,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,748,486,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The operation of the national park system account is the 
primary source of funding for the national parks, and supports 
the activities, programs and services essential to their day-
to-day operations. It includes base funding for individual park 
units, as well as pooled funding administered at the national 
or regional level for training; repair, preservation and 
rehabilitation of facilities and resources; information 
technology; and a variety of other purposes.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $1,748,486,000 for operation of 
the national park system, an increase of $64,922,000 over the 
fiscal year 2005 enacted level, an increase of $14,433,000 over 
the budget request, and a decrease of $5,713,000 below the 
House recommended funding level.
    The amount provided includes an increase over the budget 
request of $20,000,000 for recurring park base operating 
budgets. Of the amounts provided in addition to the budget 
request, $500,000 should be allocated to the national trails 
system.
    Resource Stewardship.--The Committee recommends 
$354,841,000 for resource stewardship, an increase of $725,000 
over the budget request. Changes to the budget request include 
increases of $225,000 for the International Center for Science 
and Learning at Mammoth Cave NP, $1,000,000 air tour 
management, and $500,000 for vanishing treasures, and a 
decrease of $1,000,000 for inventory and monitoring.
    The Committee understands that the Service intends to 
conduct a history study to improve interpretation of Civil War 
homefront themes at Marsh Billings Rockefeller NHP.
    Visitor Services.--The Committee recommends $346,181,000 
for visitor services, the same as the budget request.
    The Committee is aware of the major celebrations planned in 
October 2006 for the 225th anniversary of the Battle of 
Yorktown, representing the end of the American Revolution, and 
throughout 2007 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the 
founding of Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement 
in America. The Committee encourages the Service to increase 
staffing as appropriate to strengthen law enforcement and 
visitor interpretation services to meet the needs of the 
expected increase in visitation during this time.
    Maintenance.--The Committee recommends $595,186,000 for 
maintenance, a decrease of $400,000 below the budget request 
for the repair and restoration of historic buildings. The 
amount provided for the repair and restoration of historic 
buildings represents a $3,000,000 increase over the enacted 
level.
    Within the amounts provided, $640,000 is for restriping and 
sealing of portions of the Natchez Trace Parkway in 
Mississippi. The Committee further understands that restoring 
maintenance services at Natchez Trace Parkway is a high 
regional priority.
    The Committee understands that the Service intends to 
conduct an historic structures report on Civilian Conservation 
Corps cabins and structures within Buffalo National River.
    Park Support.--The Committee recommends $301,721,000 for 
park support, a decrease of $5,892,000 below the budget 
request. Changes to the request include an increase of $250,000 
for partnership wild and scenic rivers, and decreases of 
$400,000 for Jamestown 2007, $61,000 for FOCUS, $310,000 for 
partnership oversight, and $5,371,000 for resource restoration 
challenge cost share. Funding for Jamestown 2007 is provided in 
the National Recreation and Preservation account.
    The Committee continues to expect the Service to allocate 
one third of the amount provided for the traditional challenge 
cost share program to the National Trails System.
    The amount provided includes the $1,000,000 requested for 
the Service to implement training and data conversion for the 
Federal Budget Management System, but the Committee is not 
impressed by the presentation of this item in the budget 
justification as an ``uncontrollable'' change. This is a 
program increase and should have been displayed as such. The 
Committee also notes that at least $2,138,000 of the amounts 
requested for various IT-related activities are presented as 
non-recurring, and expects that corresponding reductions will 
be displayed in the fiscal year 2007 justification.
    External Administrative Costs.--The Committee recommends 
$130,557,000 for external administrative costs, the same as the 
budget request.
    Other.--The Committee notes that the park area budget 
presentation indicates that the distribution of the $12,600,000 
increase for visitor services provided by Congress in fiscal 
year 2005 is to be non-recurring at the parks to which it was 
allocated. This is not what the Committee intended and is not 
consistent with the park-specific justifications provided for 
these increases. The Committee provided these funds in response 
to widespread concerns that park managers had been forced to 
reduce visitor facility hours of operation and other recurring 
visitor services due to the absorption of pay and other fixed 
costs in their base budgets. In many cases, treating these 
funds as non-recurring does not allow parks to use them as the 
Committee intended.
    The National Park Service budget has numerous programs that 
exist to meet non-recurring park needs for maintenance, and 
natural and cultural resource management. The budget also 
regularly proposes specific funding in the park base for one-
time or isolated events such as the presidential inaugural, and 
subsequent budget justifications then reflect the proposed 
reduction of these funds when the program is complete. If, 
however, there is a need to create a new fund source to meet an 
unfunded non-recurring park requirement, then the 
administration should request this in a future budget. But in 
this case the funds provided were clearly intended to be part 
of the parks' permanent base budgets, and the Committee expects 
them to be treated as such.
    The Committee does not recommend continuation of language 
carried in previous appropriations acts regarding the inclusion 
of 18 U.S.C. 1913 in the text of National Park Service grants 
or contracts. Removal of this requirement should not be 
construed as either a recommendation for change in National 
Park Service procedures, or any lessening of the Committee's 
interest in seeing that the anti-lobbying provisions of 18 
U.S.C. 1913 and section 402 of this Act are followed in both 
letter and spirit.

                       UNITED STATES PARK POLICE

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $80,076,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      80,411,000
House allowance.........................................      82,411,000
Committee recommendation................................      80,411,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The United States Park Police is a full-time, full-service 
uniformed law enforcement entity of the National Park Service 
that operates primarily in the Washington, DC, area, the New 
York City metropolitan area, and San Francisco. Its primary 
functions are the protection of icon parks and their visitors, 
patrol of the National Mall and adjacent parks, special events 
and crowd management, criminal investigations, and traffic 
control and parkway patrol.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $80,411,000 for the United States 
Park Police, an increase of $335,000 over the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level, the same as the budget request, and $2,000,000 
below the House recommended funding level.

                  NATIONAL RECREATION AND PRESERVATION

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $60,973,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      36,777,000
House allowance.........................................      48,997,000
Committee recommendation................................      56,729,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The national recreation and preservation appropriation 
funds a variety of authorized programs that are associated with 
local community efforts to preserve natural and cultural 
resources.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $56,729,000 for national 
recreation and preservation, a decrease of $4,244,000 from the 
fiscal year 2005 enacted level, an increase of $19,952,000 over 
the budget request, and an increase of $7,732,000 over the 
House recommended funding level.
    Recreation Programs.--The Committee recommends $554,000 for 
recreation programs, the same as the budget request.
    Natural Programs.--The Committee recommends $10,045,000 for 
natural programs, an increase of $500,000 over the budget 
request. The increase provided is for the rivers and trails 
conservation assistance program.
    Cultural Programs.--The Committee recommends $20,403,000 
for cultural programs, an increase of $2,681,000 over the 
budget request. The amount provided includes increases of 
$1,931,000 for the National Center for Preservation Technology 
and $750,000 for the National Underground Railroad Network to 
Freedom program. Further discussion of National Park Service 
training facility needs is contained in the construction 
portion of this report.
    International Park Affairs.--The Committee recommends 
$1,618,000 for international park affairs, the same as the 
budget request.
    Environmental and Compliance Review.--The Committee 
recommends $399,000 for environmental compliance and review, 
the same as the budget request.
    Grant Administration.--The Committee recommends $1,913,000 
for grant administration, the same as the budget request.
    Heritage Partnership Programs.--The Committee recommends 
$13,572,000 for heritage partnership programs, an increase of 
$8,546,000 over the budget request. The Committee recommends 
the following distribution of funds:

      TOTAL, Heritage Partnership Pgms..................          13,572
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Committee remains concerned about the potential growth 
in the number of authorized heritage areas given ongoing fiscal 
limitations and inconstant administration support for the 
program. Three new heritage areas were authorized in the 108th 
Congress, and proposals to create dozens more are under active 
discussion. Continued growth in the number of areas will 
inevitably lead to the dilution of available funding and could 
potentially diminish program effectiveness. The Committee is 
aware that the relevant authorizing committees have spent 
considerable time debating the future of the heritage area 
program, and that the National Park Service Advisory Board is 
also conducting a review. The Committee hopes that all 
stakeholders will work to produce a coherent vision for 
heritage programs that encompasses not only the heritage 
partnership program but also other existing and proposed 
programs related to heritage tourism.
    Statutory or Contractual Aid.--The Committee recommends 
$8,225,000 for statutory or contractual aid, as opposed to zero 
funding as proposed in the budget request. The distribution of 
funds is shown in the table below.

                        [In thousands of dollars]

      Subtotal, Statutory or Contractual Aid...............        8,225
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Neither the budget request nor the House bill include 
funding for the Chesapeake Bay Gateways and Water Trails 
program authorized in Public Law 105-312. The House Committee 
report also describes ``problems'' with program management that 
were identified in a routine oversight review performed by the 
Surveys and Investigations staff of the House Committee. This 
Committee would welcome the opportunity to review these 
findings and discuss them with program managers and 
stakeholders, but understands that the findings of the 
oversight team are unpublished and generally unavailable to 
stakeholders or the public for review or comment. The Committee 
sees little redeeming value in this Star Chamber approach to 
oversight, and recommends an appropriation of $2,000,000 for 
continued program activities. The Committee urges the National 
Park Service to implement its action plan for the Chesapeake 
Bay Gateways and Water Trails program, and to work openly with 
Congress, the Department, stakeholder groups and others to 
ensure that the program is managed in a way that meets its 
statutory goals in the most efficient manner possible.

                       HISTORIC PRESERVATION FUND

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $71,739,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      66,205,000
House allowance.........................................      72,705,000
Committee recommendation................................      72,500,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Historic Preservation Fund was established in the 
National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 to provide grant 
assistance to States, territories, and tribes to aid in the 
preservation of historical sites and cultural heritage. A 
portion of these funds are used by State Historic Preservation 
Offices to operate national programs such as the National 
Register of Historic Places and the Section 106 review process, 
as well as to provide technical assistance and to make matching 
grants to local communities for preservation projects. This 
appropriation has also supported a variety of targeted programs 
at the national level designed to achieve historic preservation 
goals.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $72,500,000 for the historic 
preservation fund, an increase of $761,000 over the fiscal year 
2005 enacted level, an increase of $6,295,000 over the budget 
request, and a decrease of $205,000 below the House recommended 
funding level.
    The amount provided includes increases over the budget 
request of $3,000,000 for grants-in-aid to States, $795,000 for 
grants-in-aid to tribes and $15,000,000 for Save America's 
Treasures. There is a decrease of $12,500,000 for Preserve 
America, but the Committee has included language in the bill 
allowing the Service to award not to exceed $7,500,000 in Save 
America's Treasures funds for Preserve America pilot grants. 
The Committee notes that Congress this year is expected to 
consider legislation to reauthorize the National Historic 
Preservation Act, and that consideration of both the Preserve 
America and Save America's Treasures programs in that context 
may have merit.

    The Committee is pleased with the progress being made 
towards the completion of the Federal commitments made pursuant 
to the Utah Public Land Artifact Preservation Act. The 
Committee encourages the Service to work closely with the State 
of Utah to expedite this project in a timely manner with regard 
to the site identified at the University of Utah.
    The Committee is troubled by the Service's proposal to fund 
a new Western Preservation Center for Training and Technology 
while terminating the existing National Center for Preservation 
Technology and Training. Budget documents provide little 
explanation for this seemingly incongruous proposal. The 
Committee invites the Service, if desired, to present a 
comprehensive and cohesive plan for NPS training facility needs 
nationwide. Such a plan should address all training facilities 
that are currently operated by the Service, are potentially 
available for Service use, or are proposed to be constructed.
    In the wake of the catastrophic floods of 1997 that 
decimated parts of Yosemite National Park, Congress provided 
more than $186,000,000 in emergency funding to repair roads, 
trails, structures and utilities, and to relocate certain 
facilities to locations more appropriate for Park purposes. Due 
in large part to extensive litigation over various aspects of 
the restoration, more than $80,000,000 of the amount provided 
remained unobligated as of the end of calendar year 2004. The 
most recent quarterly report provided to the Committee 
indicates that significant additional project completions will 
occur in 2005 and 2006. Presumably a significant amount of the 
remaining funds will be obligated on these projects. As such, 
the Committee requests that the Service include in its coming 
quarterly reports a more thorough discussion of the closeout of 
the Yosemite recovery effort. The Committee is particularly 
interested in knowing what portion of the remaining funds will 
be required to complete planned recovery activities, whether 
additional funds are expected to be required, and what funding 
sources are contemplated to provide any such additional 
funding. The Committee has found the Service's quarterly 
reports to be helpful, and believes this additional information 
will be useful as the project moves forward.
    Of the funds provided for New River Gorge NSR, $940,000 is 
for boundary surveys, stabilization and HVAC work, $231,000 is 
for design of the restoration of the Cliffside Amphitheater, 
$125,000 is for the New River Parkway Authority, and $213,000 
is for design for the stabilization of the Nutall Mine Complex.
    The Committee has included additional funds for general 
management planning for the El Camino Real de los Tejas. The 
Committee also strongly encourages the National Park Service to 
complete the management plan for the Cedar Creek and Belle 
Grove National Historical Park no later than September 1, 2007.
    The Committee understands that in fiscal year 2006 the 
Service will initiate construction planning for repair of 
scenic overlooks at Shenandoah NP.
    No funds have been provided for the Safety Interoperable 
Communications Program [SAFECOM].
    The West Yellowstone Solid Waste Composting Facility was 
developed by Yellowstone National Park and other regional 
stakeholders to reduce both the volume and cost of solid waste 
transportation and disposal from the Park and surrounding area. 
Regrettably, problems with process design and waste 
characteristics have left the facility operating at well below 
design capacity. The Park is now the only user of the facility, 
and the diminished capacity has both jeopardized project 
financing and put unexpected pressure on the Park's operating 
budget. Given the Service's prominent role in the development, 
design and ultimate use of the composting facility, the 
Committee believes it appropriate that the Service bear a large 
portion of the responsibility for fixing the problem. While 
process improvements have been implemented and may help at the 
margins, it appears that buying down the project debt is the 
only sensible solution. The Committee expects the Service to 
identify and make available promptly the funding required to 
implement such a solution.
    Language has been included in the bill relating to funds 
provided for construction projects at Mount Rainier National 
Park.

    The Committee recommends a rescission of $30,000,000 in 
annual contract authority provided by 16 U.S.C. 460l-10a. This 
authority has not been used in recent years and there are no 
plans to use it in fiscal year 2005.

Committee recommendation................................      86,005,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The land acquisition and State assistance appropriation 
supports the acquisition of lands and interests in lands to 
preserve historical and natural sites, primarily for inclusion 
in the national park system. This account also provides funding 
for the State Assistance program (``Stateside''), which was 
authorized in the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act to 
support recreation development and recreation-related land 
acquisition by State and local governments.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $86,005,000 for land acquisition 
and State assistance, a decrease of $60,344,000 from the 
enacted level, an increase of $31,538,000 over the budget 
request and $76,584,000 over the House recommendation.

    The Committee understands that the town of Blowing Rock, NC 
and the Blue Ridge Parkway have agreed to a mutually beneficial 
land exchange. Within funds provided, the Service is directed 
to perform the necessary environmental impact statement to 
complete this exchange.
    The Committee has provided additional funds for the 
Shenadoah Valley Battlefield National Historic District. The 
Committee expects the Service to recognize the value of 
conservation easements as a cost effective conservation method 
to protect battlefield lands within the District, and utilize 
easements to the greatest extent possible.
    The Committee is aware of opportunities to preserve Civil 
War battlefields at Pilot Knob, MO and Lone Jack, MO and 
encourages the Service to consider allocating preservation 
funds for these sites to the extent that applicants meet the 
established criteria for the civil war battlefield preservation 
program.
    The Committee is aware of an ongoing land acquisition 
project at the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park in 
Kentucky and provided funds in fiscal year 2005 for this 
effort. The Committee remains very supportive for this project 
and hopes that the National Park Service will continue to 
acquire available property from willing sellers.

                          ENERGY AND MINERALS


                         U.S. Geological Survey

    Established in 1879, the U.S. Geological Survey [USGS] 
serves as the Earth and natural science research bureau for the 
Department of the Interior and is the only integrated natural 
resources research bureau in the Federal Government. The Survey 
conducts research, monitoring, and assessments to contribute to 
understanding America's lands, water, and biological resources. 
Its research and data products support the Department's 
resource and land management needs and also provide the water, 
biological, energy, and mineral resources information needed by 
other Federal, State, tribal and local government agencies to 
guide planning, management, and regulatory programs. More than 
9,000 scientists, technicians, and support staff of the USGS 
are located in nearly 400 offices in every state and in several 
foreign countries throughout the world. The USGS leverages its 
resources and expertise in partnership with more than 200 
agencies of Federal, State, local, and tribal governments; the 
academic community; non-governmental organizations; and the 
private sector.

                 SURVEYS, INVESTIGATIONS, AND RESEARCH

Appropriations, 2005 (including emergency 
    appropriations).....................................    $944,564,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     933,515,000
House allowance.........................................     974,586,000
Committee recommendation................................     963,057,000

    The Committee recommends $963,057,000 for surveys, 
investigations and research activities of the U.S. Geological 
Survey, an amount that is $27,593,000 above the fiscal year 
2005 enacted level (excluding emergency appropriations), 
$29,542,000 above the budget request and a reduction of 
$11,529,000 from the House allowance. The table at the back of 
the report displays the proposed allocation of funding among 
the Survey's various activities.
    Mapping, Remote Sensing, and Geographic Investigations.--
The Committee recommends $127,203,000 for mapping, remote 
sensing, and geographic investigations, a decrease of 
$6,250,000 from the budget request. Changes to the budget 
request include reductions of $250,000 for a new science impact 
proposal and $6,000,000 for additional support of Landsat 7 
satellite operations.
    In agreement with the budget request, the Committee has 
included $7,450,000 for development of the Landsat Data 
Continuity Mission and commends the Department of the Interior 
and the Survey for working with their Federal partners to 
develop a plan for future operations. The Committee is less 
enthusiastic, however, about the Department's proposal for the 
continuation of Landsat 7 operations in the foreseeable future. 
In essence, the proposal put before the Committee is no 
different than previous recommendations, all of which amount to 
a subsidy of current operations. The Committee had cautioned 
the Department and the Survey to look for savings, both within 
the mapping program and throughout the Survey and, further, 
urged the Survey to reexamine its priorities in order to 
dedicate funds to the most significant core activities. Travel 
and buyout savings were both areas previously identified by the 
Committee as potential sources for additional funds--but none 
of these funds appear to be redirected to the data center's 
operations. In last year's Senate report, this Committee 
directed the Survey to provide quarterly reports for the 
Landsat program that would display operational costs, revenue 
and any required supplemental funding. To date, none has been 
received. Between now and the time the 2006 Interior bill is 
conferenced, the Committee expects the Survey and Department to 
provide far greater detail and further explanation of this 
proposal before it will give this request further 
consideration.
    Geology.--The Committee recommends $237,202,000 for the 
geology program, an increase of $29,066,000 above the budget 
request. Changes to the budget request include increases of 
$1,000,000 above projected base funding for the Alaska Volcano 
Observatory to purchase, install and operate volcano monitoring 
equipment in Shemya, Alaska; $26,478,000 to restore the mineral 
resources research and assessment program; $2,000,000 to 
restore the minerals information data collection and analysis 
program; and $500,000 for the gas hydrates research program in 
Alaska. A decrease of $912,000 from the budget request has been 
assumed for the proposed expansion of Puget Sound ecosystem 
studies.
    The Committee is dismayed that the proposal to discontinue 
much of the mineral resources activity has again resurfaced in 
the fiscal 2006 budget request. The Survey has made this 
recommendation during previous budget cycles and each time it 
has been rejected by both the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations. No factual evidence has been supplied to 
indicate that the private sector could or should absorb this 
program's domestic and international responsibilities. The 
United States is the world's largest user of mineral 
commodities and, as developing nations become increasingly 
industrialized, the demand and competition for these resources 
will increase significantly. With no other agency providing the 
data and analysis in this area of critical importance to our 
national security, it would seem irresponsible to decrease or 
eliminate funding for what clearly would appear to be an 
inherently Federal responsibility.
    Following a 2003 review of the mineral resources program by 
the National Research Council, its recommendation to develop an 
external grants program was implemented by the Survey with 
$200,000 in base funding. In the coming fiscal year, the 
Committee expects the Survey to dedicate $1,000,000 of its base 
funds to this program and explore further the ways in which 
other Council recommendations, such as the establishment of 
outside advisory committee of the Council, can be achieved.
    Within the coastal and marine geology program, the 
Committee encourages the Survey to continue its significant 
research investment in the southern Louisiana area in support 
of both State and Federal agency coastal restoration planning 
efforts. In addition to collaborative efforts with partners 
such as the University of New Orleans and the Long-Term Estuary 
Assessment Group, the Committee expects the Survey to work with 
the Lake Pontchartrain Stakeholders Conference to identify 
priority projects in the Lake Pontchartrain Basin.
    Water Resources Investigations.--The Committee recommends 
$214,751,000 for water resources investigations, an increase of 
$10,580,000 above the budget request. Changes to the budget 
request include increases of $500,000 to support development of 
a Memphis aquifer study [MATRAS]; $230,000 to support an Ozark 
aquifer study; $1,500,000 to continue the Roubidoux acquifer 
study in collaboration with the University of Oklahoma; 
$450,000 to continue support for a well monitoring project in 
Hawaii; $900,000 to continue the Tongue River coalbed methane 
study; $900,000 for the San Francisco South Bay Salt Ponds 
restoration project; and $6,500,000 to restore the water 
resources research institutes program, which was proposed to be 
eliminated. A reduction of $400,000 from the budget request has 
been made for a proposed multi-state water availability study. 
With respect to the increase provided for San Francisco South 
Bay Salt Ponds water monitoring, the Committee has been made 
aware recently that these additional funds are critical in the 
coming fiscal year to replace a loss of financial support from 
non-Federal partners that would cripple ongoing multi-agency 
cooperative efforts in the area. The Committee expects that 
this requirement will be reflected in the Survey's fiscal year 
2007 budget submission.
    The Committee notes that monitoring and research assessment 
activities at Lake Champlain are proposed to be funded at 
$190,000 in fiscal year 2006. The Committee expects the Survey 
to provide an additional amount of up to $295,000 from within 
base funds to continue that program at no less than the current 
level in the coming fiscal year. The Committee further expects 
that the full requirement for this program will be included in 
future budget submissions, thereby eliminating the need for an 
annual adjustment.
    Biological Research.--The Committee recommends $174,280,000 
for the biological research program, an increase of $1,355,000 
above the budget request. Changes to the budget request include 
increases of $400,000 to complete a bear DNA sampling study; 
$500,000 to continue research on the pallid sturgeon; 
$1,000,000 to continue molecular biology and water studies at 
the Leetown Science Center; $400,000 to continue studies on the 
impact of lead mining in the Mark Twain National Forest; 
$200,000 to continue diamondback terrapin research in the 
Chesapeake Bay; and $55,000 to restore base funding for the 
cooperative research units that was proposed to be redirected 
to other activities. Decreases from the budget request include 
$750,000 for expansion of activities at the Glen Canyon Dam and 
$450,000 for additional DOI science programs. Within the 
amounts provided for biological monitoring, the Committee 
expects collaborative invasive species work with Mississippi 
State University to be continued at a level of $1,000,000.
    The Committee remains concerned that despite the 
significant amount of time and effort that has been dedicated 
to producing a report on future direction for the National 
Biological Information Infrastructure, no clearly coordinated 
budgetary and programmatic plan has emerged for its expansion. 
The Committee expects that any additional future funding for 
the program will be requested by the Survey in some sort of 
priority order that allows the Committee to consider these 
proposals within the overall context of the Survey's other 
programs.
    The National Wildlife Health Center's Diagnostic 
Microbiology Laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin routinely tests 
for the presence of botulism as a possible cause of death in 
wildlife. It conducts about 250 botulism tests annually by 
infecting live mice as a means of determining the presence of 
toxins, which takes a long time to determine results. A modern 
test is needed that would be prompt and more effective, yet 
reduce the cost of testing. The Committee recommends that the 
U.S. Geological Survey evaluate during fiscal year 2006 a 
modern diagnostic botulism test for the Diagnostic Microbiology 
Laboratory that does not require the use of live animals, using 
fluorescence resonance energy transfer technology developed in 
conjunction with the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.
    Enterprise Information.--The Committee recommends 
$47,087,000 for enterprise information activities, a reduction 
of $680,000 from the budget request. The Committee does not 
agree to the transfer of $680,000 from the Survey's programs to 
support the Federal Emergency Management Agency's disaster 
management e-gov initiative as proposed in the budget request.
    In agreement with the budget request, the Committee has 
included $1,059,000 for a continuing program of certification 
and accreditation to ensure the security and integrity of USGS 
information systems. To the fullest extent possible, funds 
appropriated to the Survey for the purposes of certification 
and accreditation should be used to conduct risk assessments 
and remediation of USGS information systems for the further 
improvement of the USGS security infrastructure and the 
strengthening of the USGS operational security posture.
    Also in agreement with the budget request, the Committee 
has provided an additional $1,235,000 for the Department's 
Enterprise Services Network [ESN]. The Committee is concerned, 
however, that the security of the ESN could be compromised if 
the computer systems that house DOI Indian Trust and Non-Trust 
information are not sufficiently segmented. The Committee 
expects the DOI to design and implement the ESN in such a way 
that there is both a logical and physical separation between 
the Trust system and the non-trust USGS systems.
    Science Support.--The Committee recommends $66,337,000 for 
science support, a decrease of $6,000,000 from the budget 
request. The Committee does not agree to the proposed 
$6,000,000 increase to reimburse programs that potentially may 
be reduced in the current fiscal year in order to provide 
additional operating funds for Landsat 7. This issue is 
discussed in greater length within the context of the mapping 
program section above. The Committee notes that it has not yet 
received a reprogramming request for the funds that are 
proposed to be redirected in fiscal year 2005.
    Facilities.--The Committee recommends $96,197,000 for 
facilities programs, an increase of $1,471,000 above the budget 
request. This increase restores funds for a number of 
facilities through the Nation that were slated for closure in 
conjunction with proposed reductions to the mineral resources 
program. That program proposal has been rejected by the 
Committee for the reasons articulated in the geology section 
above.
    The Committee remains concerned about reported poor and 
unsafe conditions in the research facilities and office 
buildings at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center and Patuxent 
Research Refuge. In the conference report to accompany the 
fiscal 2004 Interior Appropriations bill (H. Rept. 108-330) and 
in the Senate report to accompany the fiscal 2005 bill (S. 
Rept. 108-341), the Committee underscored its expectation that 
the Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Geological Survey 
develop a plan and budget for the rehabilitation or replacement 
of facilities and resolve any jurisdictional issues between the 
agencies. To date, the Department has not submitted such a plan 
or budget and the Committee understands that there has been no 
final resolution of the jurisdictional issues. The Committee 
expects the Secretary of the Interior to complete a facilities 
and budget plan by not later than March 1, 2006, which 
identifies the priorities, schedule, funding requirements, 
phasing options and agencies responsible for the repair, 
rehabilitation or replacement of facilities, buildings and 
associated infrastructure at the Center and Refuge.

                      Minerals Management Service

    The Minerals Management Service oversees 1.76 billion acres 
of the Outer Continental Shelf, managing offshore energy and 
minerals while protecting the human, marine, and coastal 
environments through advanced science and technology research. 
The OCS provides 30 percent of oil and 23 percent of natural 
gas produced domestically, and sand used for coastal 
restoration. The MMS also collects, accounts for, and disburses 
mineral revenues from Federal and American Indian lands, with 
fiscal year 2004 disbursements of approximately $8,000,000,000 
and more than $143,000,000,000 since 1982.

                ROYALTY AND OFFSHORE MINERALS MANAGEMENT

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $166,820,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     160,416,000
House allowance.........................................     152,676,000
Committee recommendation................................     152,516,000

    The Committee recommends $152,516,000 for royalty and 
offshore minerals management, which is a decrease of 
$14,304,000 below the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, 
$7,900,000 below the budget request, and $160,000 below the 
House recommended funding level. The funding amounts set out 
below are at the activity level. Additional details on funding 
for sub-activities for the Service are set out in a table in 
the back of this report.

    Within the funds for the leasing and environmental program 
in the Outer Continental Shelf lands activity, the Committee 
has provided $150,000 for the Alaska Whaling Commission to 
ensure that proposed OCS sales in Alaska properly consider the 
impacts of offshore drilling on whale migration patterns and 
whaling activities.
    The Committee has provided an increase of $900,000 above 
the budget request for the resource evaluation program in the 
Outer Continental Shelf lands activity. The increase is for the 
Center for Marine Resources and Environmental Technology to 
support exploration and sustainable development of seabed 
minerals including gas hydrates. Within the funds provided for 
royalty management, the Committee has provided $1,000,000 above 
the request for the State and tribal audit program.
    The Committee has recommended bill language that provides 
permanent authority for the Royalty in Kind program and allows 
the MMS to recover transportation costs, salaries, and other 
administrative costs directly related to the program. 
Accordingly, the $9,800,000 requested for administrative costs 
associated with the filling of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve 
and the RIK program have not been provided.
    The Committee has continued bill language carried in prior 
years prohibiting the use of funds for Outer Continental Shelf 
leasing and development in certain areas. However, the 
Committee notes as it has in prior years that development 
activities outside of areas identified in the agency's 5 year 
OCS development plan are not permitted under law. The current 5 
year plan does not expire until 2007. Accordingly, this 
moratoria language is largely irrelevant during the remaining 
period of the plan.
    Given the uncertainties with projecting offsetting receipts 
1 to 2 years in advance, the Committee has again given the 
Minerals Management Service the authority to utilize receipts 
accruing from rental rates in effect prior to August 5, 1993, 
to augment primary sources of receipts should this be necessary 
to reach the operating levels intended by the Committee.
    The Committee has been notified that the Department intends 
to merge the GovWorks program administrated by the Minerals 
Management Service [MMS] into the National Business Center 
[NBC]. The GovWorks program has long been regarded as one of 
the best managed, innovative and competitive fee-for-service 
organizations in government. The Committee requests that the 
Department conduct a study that includes an assessment of the 
impact this change will have on the ability of MMS to 
accomplish its mission. The Committee expects this study to be 
provided prior to any permanent reorganization.

                           OIL SPILL RESEARCH

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $7,006,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................       7,006,000
House allowance.........................................       7,006,000
Committee recommendation................................       7,006,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $7,006,000 for 
oil spill research, which is equal to the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level, the budget request and the House recommended 
funding level.

          Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement

    The Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement 
was established in 1977 to oversee and carry out the 
requirements of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act 
[SMCRA] in concert with States and Indian Tribes. OSM's primary 
objectives are to ensure coal mining activities are conducted 
in a manner that protects citizens and the environment during 
mining, ensure the land is properly reclaimed, and mitigate 
effects of past mining by reclaiming abandoned coal mines. OSM 
addresses its mission with a mix of grants to States and Tribes 
to carry out their own regulatory and reclamation programs, and 
the administration of OSM's own regulatory and reclamation 
programs.
    SMCRA originally authorized the collection of tonnage fees 
on mined coal to support reclamation work through September 30, 
2004. Several short term extensions of this authority have been 
enacted pending congressional action on comprehensive SMCRA 
reauthorization legislation.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $110,535,000 for regulation and

    In the absence of legislation extending the collection of 
fees under the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act 
[SMCRA], the Committee has not provided funds for the 
administration's proposal to provide additional funds to pay 
down the State share balances in the AML fund of certified 
States.
    Bill Language.--As in prior years, the bill includes 
language related to the conduct of the abandoned mine land 
program. The Committee also has recommended language which 
would fund minimum program State grants at $1,500,000 per 
State, as well as language which provides $10,000,000 to be 
used for projects in the Appalachian clean streams initiative.
    The Committee also has included language specific to the 
State of Maryland authorizing the State to set aside for acid 
mine drainage abatement the greater of $1,000,000 or 10 percent 
of the total of the grants made available to the State under 
title IV of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 
1977, subject to specific provisions identified in the bill 
language.

                             INDIAN AFFAIRS


                        Bureau of Indian Affairs

    The Bureau of Indian Affairs was founded in 1824 to uphold 
a government-to-government relationship between the Federal 
Government and tribal entities. The Federal Government retained 
trust responsibility for individual Indians and Tribes as a 
result of formal treaties and agreements with Native Americans.
    The Bureau provides services directly or through contracts, 
grants, or compacts to a population of 1.5 million American 
Indians and Alaska Natives who are members of 562 federally 
recognized Indian Tribes in the lower 48 States and Alaska. 
Programs administered by the BIA and Tribes include an 
education system for almost 48,000 elementary and secondary 
students; 28 tribal colleges, universities and post-secondary 
schools; social services; natural resource management on 56 
million acres of trust land; economic development; law 
enforcement; administration of tribal courts; implementation of 
land and water claim settlements; replacement and repair of 
schools; repair and maintenance of roads and bridges; and 
repair of structural deficiencies on high hazard dams.
    Approximately 40 percent of the BIA budget is used for 
Tribal Priority Allocations funding basic tribal services such 
as social services, adult vocational training, child welfare, 
natural resources management and contract support; 30 percent 
supports Native American education programs; 11 percent is 
dedicated to BIA Administration; and 19 percent supports Other 
Reservation Programs.

    Additional details on the funding for the Bureau's 
Activities are provided in a table in the back of this report.
    The BIA has proposed a new budget structure for fiscal year 
2006. While the aim of the restructuring is reportedly to align 
similar programs, concern has been raised that the new 
structure is less transparent, particularly when tracking 
Tribal Priority Allocations. Furthermore, the Committee is 
unhappy with the level of consultation with tribes prior to the 
circulation of the new budget proposal. If the Bureau wishes to 
propose this restructuring again in fiscal year 2007 the 
Committee expects a higher level of consultation with tribes 
and will not adopt the change without their strong support.
    Tribal Priority Allocation.--The Committee recommends 
$775,407,000 for tribal priority allocations [TPA], an increase 
of $15,258,000 above the budget request and $5,864,000 above 
the fiscal year 2005 enacted level. Increases above the budget 
request include an additional $8,838,000 for Johnson-O'Malley 
grants, and $6,420,000 for welfare assistance.
    The Committee is concerned with the Bureau's proposed bill 
language and subsequent change to the allocation of Contract 
Support Costs that would split $5,000,000 into a separate 
account for Direct Contract Support Costs. Numerous tribes have 
expressed concern that this proposal would reduce flexibility 
in allocating funds to meet current contract costs. The 
Committee is concerned that tribes weren't given adequate 
notice of this change and tribes have expressed frustration in 
the Bureau's unwillingness to consider other options. The 
Bureau is expected to work with tribes to develop an updated 
policy on the payment of Contract Support Costs that is widely 
accepted amongst the tribal community and includes additional 
funding for Direct Costs rather than allocating them from 
within an already anemic budget allocation for Indirect 
Contract Support Costs.
    Other Recurring Programs.--The Committee recommends 
$621,295,000 for other recurring programs, an increase of 
$8,376,000 above the fiscal year 2005 enacted level and 
$18,994,000 above the budget estimate. Changes to the budget 
estimate include: increases of $12,500,000 for operating grants 
and $500,000 for technical assistance to support Tribally 
Controlled Community Colleges; $210,000 for fish hatchery 
maintenance; and $5,784,000 for the following Tribal 
Management/Development programs: the Alaska Sea Otter 
Commission ($98,000), the Wetlands/Waterfowl Management program 
($600,000), the Upper Columbia United Tribes ($320,000), the 
Bering Sea Fishermen's Association ($790,000), the bison 
program ($3,000,000), Lake Roosevelt Management ($630,000), and 
the Chugach Regional Resources Commission ($346,000).
    Millions of dollars have been invested by the Federal 
Government over the past 40 years to build a nationwide system 
of Bureau of Indian Affairs fish hatcheries to help meet trust 
and treaty obligations to the tribes. The Committee is 
concerned that past Federal infrastructure investment is not 
being properly maintained. Further, new operating requirements 
under the Federal Endangered Species Act are placing increasing 
demands upon these hatcheries. The managers direct the Bureau 
of Indian Affairs to provide the Committee a comprehensive 
report identifying all hatcheries by region, examining the 
hatcheries' value to local recovery efforts, and identifying 
unmet needs and cost for maintenance and rehabilitation. The 
report is expected do be delivered to the Committee on 
Appropriations by February 1, 2006. The Bureau is also 
requested to propose a fiscal year 2007 budget initiative to 
address the inadequate maintenance and rehabilitation plans for 
Bureau and tribal hatcheries.
    Non-Recurring Programs.--The Committee recommends 
$70,475,000 for non-recurring programs, a decrease of 
$5,510,000 below the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, and an 
increase of $5,150,000 above the budget estimate. Increases 
above the budget estimate include $500,000 for continuation of 
the Rocky Mountain Technology Foundation's Native American 
Patient Advocate Program, $750,000 for the rural Alaska fire 
program, $1,500,000 for the Information Technology Resource 
Facility at Salish and Kootenai Tribal College, $400,000 for 
the Alaska Legal Services program, and $2,000,000 to restore 
the administration's reduction to the Water Management and 
Planning program. Within funds provided for Water Management 
and Planning, $200,000 is for the Operation, Maintenance and 
Repair of the Fort Peck Reservation Tribal Water System.
    Central Office Operations.--The Committee recommends 
$151,534,000 for central office operations, an increase of 
$11,513,000 above the fiscal year 2005 enacted level and equal 
to the budget request.
    Regional Office Operations.--The Committee recommends 
$41,590,000 for regional office operations, an increase of 
$228,000 over the fiscal year 2005 enacted level and fully 
commensurate with the budget estimate.
    Special Programs/Pooled Overhead.--The Committee recommends 
$310,831,000 for special programs/pooled overhead, an increase 
of $24,570,000 above the fiscal year 2005 enacted level and 
$7,500,000 above the budget estimate. Increases above the 
budget estimate include the following: $3,500,000 for the 
United Tribes Technical College, $450,000 for the United Sioux 
Tribes Development Corporation, $1,800,000 for the Crownpoint 
Institute of Technology, $1,250,000 for the Western Heritage 
Center's Distance Learning and tribal histories project, 
$400,000 for the Lakota Water Economic Development Expansion, 
and $100,000 for the Rocky Mountain Tribal Educational Symposia 
proposed by the Montana-Wyoming Tribal Leaders Council. The 
Bureau is expected to work with the Council to support and 
enhance their vision to provide a continuing education program 
for tribal leaders. The Committee applauds the Council's desire 
to strengthen the ties between tribes in the region to work 
together furthering economic development and addressing social 
conditions impacting their members.
    The Committee notes and fully supports the increases of 
$12,202,000 for law enforcement activities, and $1,163,000 for 
postsecondary schools and education scholarships.
    The Committee expects the Secretary to report to Congress 
within 60 days of the enactment of this Act on the status of 
all ongoing litigation, negotiations, and settlements with the 
Samish Indian Nation regarding funding for services and 
programs offered to tribal members. The report should contain a 
synopsis of all past and ongoing litigation and court 
decisions, and a detailed outline of payments and contracts 
disputed by the tribe.

                              CONSTRUCTION

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $319,129,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     232,137,000
House allowance.........................................     284,137,000
Committee recommendation................................     267,137,000

    The Committee recommends $267,137,000 for construction, 
which is $35,000,000 over the budget request. The Committee 
reluctantly notes this amount is significantly below the 
enacted level. While Indian school construction and replacement 
remains a high priority, at the time of the preparation of this 
report the school replacement construction account held 
approximately $200,000,000 in unobligated balances.
    The Committee is disturbed by the decrease in funding for 
school replacement, but compelling needs in other Native 
American programs prevent the Committee from fully replacing 
the budget request's reduction to this account.
    Additions to the budget request include $15,000,000 for 
Replacement School Construction, $10,000,000 for Education 
Facilities Improvement and Repair and $10,000,000 for Indian 
Irrigation Rehabilitation under Resources Management 
Construction.
    The addition of $10,000,000 for Indian Irrigation 
Rehabilitation is separate from the Navajo Indian Irrigation 
Project, which retains its own construction budget of 
$12,773,000. Within the funds provided for Indian Irrigation 
Rehabilitation, a number of Bureau and tribal projects are in 
desperate need of immediate attention to continue delivering 
water to users. The Bureau is expected to consult with the 
Committee prior to obligating funds and is expected to address 
projects with the greatest need of rehabilitation. Construction 
of new projects or expansion of existing projects is secondary 
to the rehabilitation, reconstruction, and necessary upgrade of 
current irrigation systems. Specific projects to be addressed 
under these guidelines, and to be addressed in the Bureau's 
proposal for the obligation of these funds are; the Fort Yates 
Unit of the Standing Rock Sioux Project, the Blackfeet 
Irrigation Project, the Crow Irrigation project, the Fort 
Belknap Irrigation Project, the Fort Peck Irrigation Project, 
and the Wind River Irrigation Project rehabilitation.

Committee recommendation................................      24,754,000

    The Committee recommends $24,754,000 for Indian land and 
water claims settlements and miscellaneous payments to Indians, 
which is a decrease of $19,396,000 below the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level, the same as the budget request, and $10,000,000 
below the House recommended funding level. Funding is provided

    The Committee recommends $6,348,000 for the Indian 
guaranteed loan program, an increase of $16,000 over the fiscal 
year 2005 enacted level and the same as the budget request and 
the House recommended funding level.

                          Departmental Offices


                            Insular Affairs

    The Office of Insular Affairs [OIA] was established on 
August 4, 1995 through Secretarial Order No. 3191, which also 
abolished the former Office of Territorial and International 
Affairs. OIA has administrative responsibility for coordinating 
Federal policy in the territories of American Samoa, Guam, the 
U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of the Northern 
Mariana Islands, and oversight of Federal programs and funds in 
the freely associated states of the Federated States of 
Micronesia [FSM], the Republic of the Marshall Islands [RMI], 
and the Republic of Palau.
    Following the expiration of the first Compact of Free 
Association in 2003, a new Compact of Free Association was 
negotiated between the United States and the states of FSM and 
RMI. Under the Compact, the status of free association 
recognizes each Freely Associated State as a sovereign state 
with the capacity to conduct foreign affairs consistent with 
the terms of the Compact. The Compact places full 
responsibility for defense with the United States. The Compact 
also provides grant funds and Federal program assistance, 
principally through the Department of the Interior.

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $76,683,000 
which is $1,102,000 above the enacted level, $2,420,000 above 
the budget request, and $120,000 above the House recommended 
funding level. The amounts recommended by the Committee

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

    Territorial Assistance.--The Committee recommends 
$25,853,000 for territorial assistance which is $2,420,000 
above the request and $771,000 above the enacted level.
    Within the increase above the request, the Committee has 
provided $320,000 to maintain the Continuing Judicial, Court 
Education, and Court Administration Improvement Project that is 
conducted in cooperation with the Pacific Islands Committee of 
the Judicial Council of the Ninth Circuit.
    The Committee has also included a $1,000,000 increase above 
the request to continue health care programs under Article II, 
Section 1, of the Agreement between the Government of the 
United States and the Government of the Marshall Islands for 
implementation of section 177 of the Compact of Free 
Association. These funds shall first be used to provide primary 
healthcare to members of the Enewetak, Bikini, Rongelap and 
Utrik communities who currently reside on Enewetak Atoll, Kili 
Island, Mejetto Island, Rongelap Atoll following resettlement, 
and Utrik Atoll. Such primary medical care shall consist of a 
clinic with at least one doctor and an assistant, and necessary 
supplies and logistical support. If excess funds are available, 
these funds may be used to augment primary healthcare for 
members of these communities who get primary healthcare 
services from the facilities in Ebeye and Majuro.
    The Committee recommends an increase of $300,000 above the 
request to enhance oversight of Compact assistance. The 
recently enacted Compact Amendments Act anticipated regular 
travel by DOI personnel to the two U.S. Embassies, and by staff 
from the Compact Office in Hawaii. However, current staff and 
travel funding levels are inadequate for proper oversight of 
the over $200,000,000 in annual assistance being provided to 
the RMI and FSM under the new, more rigorous, accountability 
provisions of the new Compact. Accordingly, these additional 
funds shall be used for staff and for travel expenses so that 
proper oversight is maintained.
    The Committee strongly supports the efforts for an 
agreement between the pension systems of the Republic of Palau, 
the CNMI, the RMI, and FSM to assume responsibilities for the 
enrollees of the Prior Services Trust Fund. The Committee 
recommends an increase of $800,000 for distribution among the 
pension systems for payments to the enrollees, provided that 
the agreement is fully implemented by each jurisdiction as 
stated in the fiscal year 2005 Interior Appropriations 
conference report. The Committee directs that this funding 
shall be reprogrammed for general technical assistance if there 
is a failure to fully implement the new agreement.
    The Committee is concerned that given the possibility of an 
economic downturn in the CNMI garment industry, additional 
efforts must be focused on the Immigration, Labor, and Law 
Enforcement Initiative. The Committee directs the Office of 
Insular Affairs to describe fully the use of CNMI Initiative 
funding in future budget justifications; coordinate regular 
interagency meetings between Federal and local immigration, 
labor, and law enforcement officials; and report annually to 
Congress on immigration, labor, and law enforcement conditions, 
issues, and trends in the CNMI.
    American Samoa Operations Grants/American Samoa 
Construction.--The Committee recommends $23,110,000 for 
operations grants to American Samoa, which is equal to the 
request and $331,000 more than the enacted level.
    CNMI/Covenant Grants.--The Committee recommends $27,720,000 
for convenant grants as proposed in the request.

                        Departmental Management


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2005 (including emergency 
    appropriations).....................................     $98,821,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     120,155,000
House allowance.........................................      97,755,000
Committee recommendation................................      94,627,000

    The Committee recommends $94,627,000 for departmental 
management, a decrease of $4,194,000 below the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level, $25,528,000 below the budget request, and 
$3,128,000 below the House recommended funding level. Changes 
from the request include decreases of $501,000 for Take Pride 
in America, $250,000 for performance data contracting, $700,000 
for OLES, $322,000 for IT certification, $200,000 for 
partnership training, and $23,555,000 for the financial and 
business management system. The change to the enacted level 
reflects, in part, transfers into this account of funding for 
the appraisal services directorate. The amount provided for 
appraisal services, which were previously funded in the DOI 
land acquisition accounts, is derived from the Land and Water 
Conservation Fund as the appraisal services directorate largely 
supports the bureaus' land acquisition programs.
    The budget justification describes the Department's long 
term plan to transfer to non-Federal entities the management of 
three museums currently operated by the Indian Arts and Crafts 
Board. The Committee is aware that the Department has only just 
begun to discuss this proposal with tribes, local communities 
and other potential partners, and that it has no intention of 
closing the museums in fiscal year 2006. The Committee expects 
that the Department's discussions with tribes, local 
communities and others will be a true dialogue, and that it 
will keep the Committee well informed of the status of those 
discussions.
    Due to continued constraints on funding for land 
acquisition and the ongoing prospect of substantial borrowing 
for fire suppression, it remains important that funding 
provided for land acquisition be obligated promptly. The 
Committee notes the annual unobligated balance reporting 
requirement included in its fiscal year 2004 report, and urges 
timely submission of the report.
    Language is included in the bill providing for a reduction 
of $10,000,000 from administrative expenses in operating 
accounts for bureaus and offices of the Department of the 
Interior.

Committee recommendation................................       9,855,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $9,855,000 for 
the central hazardous materials fund, which is equal to the 
fiscal year 2005 enacted level, the budget request, and the 
House recommended funding level. Language has been included in

             Office of Special Trustee for American Indians

    The Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians 
holds responsibility for approximately 56 million acres of 
land, with over 10 million acres belonging to individual 
Indians and 46 million acres held in trust for Indian Tribes. 
On these lands the Department of the Interior manages over 
100,000 leases for individual Indians and Tribes. Leasing, use 
permits, land sale revenue, and interest totaling $205,000,000 
per year are collected for 245,000 individual Indian money 
accounts. $414,000,000 per year is collected in 1,400 tribal 
accounts serving 300 Tribes. Additionally, the trust manages 
approximately $3,000,000,000 in tribal funds and $400,000,000 
in individual Indian funds.
    Over the past decade, nearly $3,000,000,000 has been 
invested in management, reform, and improvement of Indian trust 
programs. Ongoing reforms and expenditures are highly dependent 
on court activity related to the ongoing Cobell v. Norton case 
and negotiations between the Department of the Interior, tribal 
governments, the plaintiffs and the courts.

which is $1,947,000 below the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, 
$77,804,000 below the budget request and the same as the House 
recommended funding level. The Committee continues to recognize 
the Federal Government's responsibility to improve Indian trust 
management and continues to support the Department's efforts in 
this regard. However, due to ongoing litigation and uncertainty 
as to whether the Department's Historical Accounting plan will 
be fully accepted by the court, the Committee is unable to 
fully fund the budget request and has instead placed emphasis 
on supporting other Indian programs and Departmental functions.

                   INDIAN LAND CONSOLIDATION PROJECT

consolidation program, equal to the fiscal year 2005 enacted 
level, the budget request, and the House recommended funding 
level.

           Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration

    The mission of the natural resource damage assessment and 
restoration program is to restore natural resources injured as 
a result of oil spills or hazardous substance releases into the 
environment. As authorized in the Comprehensive Environmental 
Response, Compensation and Liability Act [CERCLA], the Clean 
Water Act, and the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, injuries to 
natural resources that the Department of the Interior manages 
or controls are assessed and appropriate restoration projects 
are identified. Recoveries from potentially responsible 
parties, either through negotiated settlements or legal 
actions, are used to finance restoration of the injured 
resources. The Restoration Program Office coordinates the 
various technical, scientific, legal, and economic aspects of 
this work, as well as the various departmental bureaus and 
offices involved.

                NATURAL RESOURCE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT FUND

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $5,737,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................       6,106,000
House allowance.........................................       6,106,000
Committee recommendation................................       6,106,000

    The Committee recommends $6,106,000 for natural resource 
damage assessment and restoration, which is $369,000 over the 
fiscal year 2005 enacted level, and the same as the budget 
request and the House recommended funding level. The increase 
provided is primarily for fixed costs and to enhance natural 
resource restoration science.
    The Committee directs the Department to continue its focus 
on restoration activities and to work with the Environmental 
Protection Agency to incorporate trustee concerns during 
Superfund remediation, and to enhance the integration of 
Superfund remedial activities and natural resource damage 
assessment activities. A joint Interior and EPA report on these 
efforts should be provided to the Committee by September 29, 
2006.

               TITLE II--ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] was created 
through Executive Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1970, designed 
to consolidate certain Federal Government environmental 
activities into a single agency. The plan was submitted by the 
President to the Congress on July 8, 1970, and the Agency was 
established as an independent agency in the executive branch on 
December 2, 1970, by consolidating 15 components from 5 
departments and independent agencies.
    A description of EPA's pollution control programs by media 
follows:
    Air.--The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 authorize a 
national program of air pollution research, regulation, 
prevention, and enforcement activities.
    Water Quality.--The Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as 
amended, provides the framework for protection of the Nation's 
surface waters. The law recognizes that it is the primary 
responsibility of the States to prevent, reduce, and eliminate 
water pollution. The States determine the desired uses for 
their waters, set standards, identify current uses and, where 
uses are being impaired or threatened, develop plans for the 
protection or restoration of the designated use. They implement 
the plans through control programs such as permitting and 
enforcement, construction of municipal waste water treatment 
works, and nonpoint source control practices. The CWA also 
regulates discharge of dredge or fill material into waters of 
the United States, including wetlands.
    Drinking Water.--The Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974, as 
amended in 1996, charges EPA with the responsibility of 
implementing a program to assure that the Nation's public 
drinking water supplies are free of contamination that may pose 
a human health risk, and to protect and prevent the 
endangerment of ground water resources which serve as drinking 
water supplies.
    Hazardous Waste.--The Resource Conservation and Recovery 
Act of 1976 mandated EPA to develop a regulatory program to 
protect human health and the environment from improper 
hazardous waste disposal practices. The RCRA Program manages 
hazardous wastes from generation through disposal.
    EPA's responsibilities and authorities to manage hazardous 
waste were greatly expanded under the Hazardous and Solid Waste 
Amendments of 1984. Not only did the regulated universe of 
wastes and facilities dealing with hazardous waste increase 
significantly, but past mismanagement practices, in particular 
prior releases at inactive hazardous and solid waste management 
units, were to be identified and corrective action taken. The 
1984 amendments also authorized a regulatory and implementation 
program directed to owners and operators of underground storage 
tanks.
    Pesticides.--The objective of the Pesticide Program is to 
protect the public health and the environment from unreasonable 
risks while permitting the use of necessary pest control 
approaches. This objective is pursued by EPA under the Food 
Quality Protection Act, the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and 
Rodenticide Act and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act 
and the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2003 through 
three principal means: (1) review of existing and new pesticide 
products; (2) enforcement of pesticide use rules; and (3) 
research and development to reinforce the ability to evaluate 
the risks and benefits of pesticides.
    Radiation.--The radiation program's major emphasis is to 
minimize the exposure of persons to ionizing radiation, whether 
from naturally occurring sources, from medical or industrial 
applications, nuclear power sources, or weapons development.
    Toxic Substances.--The Toxic Substances Control Act 
establishes a program to stimulate the development of adequate 
data on the effects of chemical substances on health and the 
environment, and institute control action for those chemicals 
which present an unreasonable risk of injury to health or the 
environment. The act's coverage affects more than 60,000 
chemicals currently in commerce, and all new chemicals.
    Multimedia.--Multimedia activities are designed to support 
programs where the problems, tools, and results are cross media 
and must be integrated to effect results. This integrated 
program encompasses the Agency's research, enforcement, and 
abatement activities.
    Superfund.--The Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 established a national 
program to protect public health and the environment from the 
threats posed by inactive hazardous waste sites and 
uncontrolled spills of hazardous substances. The original 
statute was amended by the Superfund Amendments and 
Reauthorization Act of 1986. Under these authorities, EPA 
manages a hazardous waste site cleanup program including 
emergency response and long-term remediation.
    Brownfields.--The Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 as amended by the Small 
Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act of 
2002 establishes a national program to assess, cleanup, and 
provide support to States, Tribes, local communities and other 
stakeholders to work together to reuse Brownfields.
    Leaking Underground Storage Tanks.--The Superfund 
Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 established the 
leaking underground storage tank [LUST] trust fund to conduct 
corrective actions for releases from leaking underground 
storage tanks that contain petroleum or other hazardous 
substances. EPA implements the LUST response program primarily 
through cooperative agreements with the States.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends a total of $7,881,989,000 for EPA.

    EPA's ``Science and technology'' account provides funding 
for the scientific knowledge and tools necessary to support 
decisions on preventing, regulating, and abating environmental 
pollution and to advance the base of understanding on 
environmental sciences. These efforts are conducted through 
contracts, grants, and cooperative agreements with 
universities, industries, other private commercial firms, 
nonprofit organizations, State and local governments, and 
Federal agencies, as well as through work performed at EPA's 
laboratories and various field stations and field offices. In

    Unclear regulations, conflicting court decisions and 
inadequate scientific information are creating confusion about 
whether emergency release reporting requirements in the 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and 
Liability Act and Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-
Know Act apply to emissions from poultry, dairy or livestock 
operations. Producers want to meet their environmental 
obligations, but need clarification from the EPA on the 
applicability of these laws to their operations. The Committee 
directs the Agency to resolve this issue expeditiously.
    The Committee is aware of the work EPA is doing through the 
NAFTA Technical Working Group on Pesticides, and encourages the 
efforts to harmonize regulatory processes. Prices for 
agricultural pesticides continue to be a concern for farmers in 
the United States due to unnecessary barriers to trade in 
agricultural pesticides. The Committee urges EPA to work 
swiftly to complete harmonization actions through the Technical 
Working Group as soon as possible, and to seek input from 
stakeholders on development and implementation of a joint 
labeling process.
    The Committee supports initiatives at EPA to develop a 
market-based sustainable electronics recycling infrastructure, 
and encourages the Agency to work with manufacturers on a 
product stewardship solution. The Committee is concerned about 
the growing patchwork of State laws that confuses and burdens 
manufacturers, retailers, recyclers and consumers.
    The Committee directs the Environmental Protection Agency 
to continue administering the fiscal year 2005 and subsequent 
annual Lake Champlain appropriations through Region I and the 
New England Interstate Water Pollution Commission.

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $1,247,477,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   1,279,333,000
House allowance.........................................   1,258,333,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,256,165,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    On October 17, 1986, Congress amended the Comprehensive 
Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 
[CERCLA] through the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization 
Act of 1986 [SARA]. SARA reauthorized and expanded the 
Hazardous Substance Superfund to address the problems of 
uncontrolled hazardous waste sites and spills. Specifically, 
the legislation mandates that EPA: (1) provide emergency 
response to hazardous waste spills; (2) take emergency action 
at hazardous waste sites that pose an imminent hazard to public 
health or environmentally sensitive ecosystems; (3) engage in 
long-term planning, remedial design, and construction to clean 
up hazardous waste sites where no financially viable 
responsible party can be found; (4) take enforcement actions to 
require responsible private and Federal parties to clean up 
hazardous waste sites; and (5) take enforcement actions to 
recover costs where the fund has been used for cleanup. Due to 
the site-specific nature of the Agency's Superfund program, 
site-specific travel is not considered part of the overall 
travel ceiling set for the Superfund account.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

        Restoration.
          The Committee recommends a $494,000 increase above 
        the request for Superfund: Emergency Response and 
        Removal. The Committee recommends a total of 
        $849,761,000 for Superfund cleanup.
    The Committee is concerned that EPA has not yet issued a 
Record of Decision [ROD] for Libby, Montana, despite years of 
cleanup efforts. The Committee directs the Agency to issue its 
Record of Decision for Libby, Montana no later than December 1, 
2005. The Agency should also provide a report on the contents 
contained within the ROD to the Committee no later than January 
15, 2006.
    The Committee directs the Agency to work with the Fish and 
Wildlife Service and other trustee bureaus within the 
Department of the Interior to incorporate trustee concerns 
during Superfund remediation and to enhance the integration of 
Superfund remedial activities and natural resource damage 
assessment activities. A joint EPA and Interior report on these 
efforts should be provided to the Committee by September 29, 
2006.
    At this time, the Committee disagrees with the position of 
the House as to the need for an additional contaminated 
sediment sites study and does not recommend that EPA enter into 
any further agreement with the National Academy of Sciences.

              Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $69,440,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      73,027,000
House allowance.........................................      73,027,000
Committee recommendation................................      73,027,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorizations Act of 1986 
[SARA] established the leaking underground storage tank [LUST] 
trust fund to conduct corrective actions for releases from 
leaking underground storage tanks containing petroleum and 
other hazardous substances. EPA implements the LUST program 
through State cooperative agreement grants which enable States 
to conduct corrective actions to protect human health and the 
environment, and through non-State entities including Indian 
tribes under section 8001 of RCRA. The trust fund is also used 
to enforce responsible parties to finance corrective actions 
and to recover expended funds used to clean up abandoned tanks.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends the budget request of $73,027,000 
for the Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund, which is 
$3,587,000 above the fiscal year 2005 enacted level and equal 
to the budget request and the House allowance. The Committee 
directs that not less than 85 percent of these funds be 
provided to the States and tribal governments.

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    This appropriation, authorized by the Federal Water 
Pollution Control Act of 1987 and amended by the Oil Pollution 
Act of 1990, provides funds to prepare for and prevent releases 
of oil and other petroleum products into navigable waterways. 
EPA is also reimbursed for incident specific response costs 
through the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund, which pursuant to 
law is managed by the United States Coast Guard. EPA is 
responsible for: directing all cleanup and removal activities 
posing a threat to public health and the environment; 
conducting site inspections, including compelling responsible 
parties to undertake cleanup actions; reviewing containment 
plans at facilities; reviewing area contingency plans; pursuing 
cost recovery of fund-financed cleanups; and conducting 
research of oil cleanup techniques. Funds for this 
appropriation are provided through the Oil Spill Liability 
Trust Fund which is composed of fees and collections made 
through provisions of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, the 
Comprehensive Oil Pollution Liability and Compensation Act, the 
Deepwater Port Act of 1974, the Outer Continental Shelf Lands 
Act Amendments of 1978, and the Federal Water Pollution Control 
Act as amended.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $15,863,000 for the oil spill 
response trust fund, which is $9,000 below the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level and equal to the budget request and the House 
allowance.

                             Forest Service

                     FOREST AND RANGELAND RESEARCH

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $276,384,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     285,400,000
House allowance.........................................     285,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     280,892,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Forest and rangeland research and development carries out 
basic and applied scientific research to provide information 
and solutions to sustain the Nation's forests and rangelands. 
Research scientists collaborate with industry, non-governmental 
organizations, colleges and universities, State foresters, and 
other governmental agencies. The research program works on a 
number of issues that are critical to the mission of the Forest 
Service including fire and fuels; invasive species; forest 
inventory and analysis; vegetation and protection; wildlife and 
fish habitat; soil, water, and air resources; valuation of 
forests and grasslands; urban forests and the urban-wildland 
interface. Research is conducted at six research stations, the 
Forest Products Laboratory, and the International Institute of 
Tropical Forestry located in Puerto Rico, with approximately 
500 scientists and 67 sites located throughout the United 
States.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $280,892,000 
for forest and rangeland research, which is $4,508,000 above 
the enacted level, $4,508,000 below the budget request, and 
$4,108,000 below the House recommended level.
    Increases above the enacted level are $2,508,000 for the 
Forest Inventory and Analysis program for a total of 
$58,434,000 within the research account (additional funds for 
the program are included under the State and Private Forestry 
heading), $500,000 for the Center for Bottomlands Hardwood 
Research in Mississippi, $155,000 for the Joe Skeen Institute 
at Montana State University for a total of $500,000 for this 
project, $300,000 for the Forest Products Laboratory to 
continue research on salvaging lumber for use in low income 
housing construction for a total of $892,000 for this project, 
$500,000 for the Northeastern States Research Cooperative to 
add Maine to the program (the $1,972,000 included in the 
request for the NSRC shall be evenly divided between the 
programs in Vermont and New Hampshire as in the past) and 
$500,000 for hydrology studies at the Southern Research Station 
located in Starkville, Mississippi. There is a general program 
increase of $45,000.
    The Committee expects that unless otherwise stated in this 
report, ongoing research projects specifically designated in 
previous years' bills shall be continued at no less than the 
fiscal year 2005 level. Such projects would include $197,000 to 
continue high priority applied research, including methods to 
reduce urban sprawl and improve livability, with the Urban 
Watershed Forestry Research and Demonstration Cooperative in 
Baltimore, Maryland; $1,282,000 for the advanced research 
housing consortium; $493,000 for research in the control of 
pests and pathogens at the forest science laboratory in 
Morgantown, West Virginia; $2,465,000 for sudden oak death 
research; $227,000 for the completion of the hydrology study on 
the Fernow Experimental Forest; $1,114,000 for the research 
laboratory in Sitka, Alaska; and $908,000 for operations at the 
Hardwood Tree Improvement and Regeneration Center at Purdue.
    The Committee is aware that certain research facility 
managers may not be fully cognizant of Congressional directives 
to the Forest Service regarding the allocation of Congressional 
funding priorities. The Committee expects the Forest Service to 
make sure that all facility managers understand this allocation 
policy and emphasize the importance of complying with 
Congressional allocations in full and in a timely manner.
    The Committee notes that the agency has established two new 
threat assessment centers in Prineville, Oregon and Asheville, 
North Carolina as authorized by the Healthy Forest Restoration 
Act. The Committee strongly supports these efforts. However, 
the Forest Service should more fully explain this funding in 
future budget submissions. These centers should rely to a large 
extent on emerging remote sensing technology and geospatial 
modeling. The Committee has provided further instructions under 
the National Forest System account regarding the use of these 
technologies by these centers.

                       STATE AND PRIVATE FORESTRY

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    State and private forestry programs provide technical and 
financial assistance to landowners and resource managers to 
help sustain the Nation's urban and rural forests and protect 
communities and the environment from wildland fires. Through a 
coordinated effort in management, protection, conservation 
education, and resource use, State and private forestry 
programs facilitate sound stewardship across lands of all 
ownerships on a landscape scale, while maintaining the 
flexibility for individual forest landowners to pursue their 
own objectives.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $254,615,000 
for State and private forestry, a decrease of $37,891,000 below 
the enacted level (excluding emergency funds), an increase of 
$1,228,000 above the request, and a decrease of $260,000 below 
the House recommended level.

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

    The Committee has provided $28,675,000 for the urban and 
community forestry program. Increases above the request are 
$500,000 for the City of Bellevue Greenstreets program, 
$350,000 for the Chicago Greenstreets program, and $350,000 for 
the City of Milwaukee tree planting program. The Committee 
encourages the Forest Service to continue its support of the 
Chicago Wilderness initiative, a consortium of more than 170 
organizations that support environmental and forestry programs 
and education in the Chicago/Northeastern Illinois region.
    Within the funds provided, $150,000 shall be made available 
for the People and Parks Foundation to continue urban natural 
resource stewardship work as part of the Urban Watershed 
Forestry Research and Demonstration cooperative in Baltimore, 
Maryland.
    The Committee is pleased with the efforts of the National 
Association of State Foresters and the Forest Service to 
develop and implement a new allocation methodology for the 
urban and community forestry program. The Committee expects the 
new system to more effectively balance program performance and 
State program needs and capability. The Committee expects this 
new methodology to be fully implemented for fiscal year 2006.
    The Committee does not concur with the administration's 
proposal to eliminate funding for the Economic Action Program 
[EAP] and has provided $14,200,000 for the program. The 
Committee continues to believe that EAP provides critical 
economic assistance to help rural, timber-dependent communities 
diversify and improve their economies. The allocation of funds 
is set out in the table below.

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The National Forest System [NFS] provides for the planning, 
assessment, and conservation of ecosystems while delivering 
multiple public services and uses. Within the NFS, there are 
155 national forests and 20 national grasslands located in 43 
States, as well as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, managed 
under multiple-use and sustained yield principles. The natural 
resources of timber, minerals, range, wildlife, outdoor 
recreation, watershed, and soil are managed to best meet the 
needs of the Nation without impairing productivity of the land 
or damaging the environment.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of 
$1,377,656,000, a decrease of $15,303,000 compared to the 
enacted level (excluding emergency appropriations), a decrease 
of $273,701,000 compared to the request excluding the proposed 
transfer of hazardous fuels to the National Forest System 
appropriation, and $40,264,000 below the House recommendation. 
The Committee has kept the hazardous fuels funds under the 
wildland fire management account.
    The distribution of the Committee's recommendations are as 
follows:

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

    Land Management Planning.--The Committee recommends 
$59,057,000 for land management planning. Within the funds for 
land management planning, the Committee has provided $400,000 
for the agency to continue the comprehensive environmental 
training, review, and compliance program for agency employees. 
This program should help ensure that employees are aware of, 
and remain fully compliant with existing Federal requirements. 
The Committee again encourages the agency to identify and 
partner with a private sector entity with a successful record 
of developing similar programs for other governmental agencies.
    Inventory and Monitoring.--The Committee recommends 
$167,009,000 for inventory and monitoring. Within the funds 
provided $170,000 is for a hillslope hydrology study on the 
Fernow Experimental Forest.
    The Committee directs that out of the funds made available 
to the Threat Assessment Centers in North Carolina and Oregon 
in the research, State and private, and National Forest System 
accounts, $1,000,000 shall be provided to the Stennis Space 
Center. These funds shall be used to acquire remote sensing 
data to inventory and monitor National Forest System and 
private lands pursuant to Title VI of the Healthy Forests 
Restoration Act.
    Recreation, Heritage, and Wilderness.--The Committee 
recommends $257,344,000 for recreation, heritage, and 
wilderness which is equal to the request.
    Wildlife and Fish Habitat Management.--The Committee 
recommends $125,001,000 for wildlife and fish habitat 
management. Within the funds provided, $250,000 shall be used 
to continue work at Batten Kill River to protect and improve 
the river, stream banks and adjacent habitat areas.
    Grazing Management.--The Committee has provided $48,500,000 
for grazing management, which is $3,841,000 above the request.
    The Committee remains extremely concerned with the lack of 
progress the agency has made in completing the environmental 
review of grazing allotments that are governed by the 
Rescissions Act schedule (Section 504 of Public Law 104-19). 
Despite this lack of progress, the agency continues to propose 
large reductions to the grazing management program. The 
Committee does not concur with these reductions and expects 
that future submissions will more adequately reflect the true 
needs of the program. Accordingly, the Committee has provided 
an additional $3,841,000 above the request for completing 
environmental review of grazing allotments, processing permits, 
and short and long term monitoring in conjunction with grazing 
permittees.
    The Committee notes the dramatic improvement in moisture 
conditions in portions of California, Arizona, New Mexico, 
Colorado and Utah and expects the Bureau of Land Management and 
the Forest Service to increase grazing permit stocking levels 
to the maximum extent possible given range conditions on the 
allotments, or subunits of the allotments. In the event the 
Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management does not have up-
to-date monitoring information needed to document the 
improvement of the range conditions, the Secretaries shall 
accept credible range condition monitoring provided from 
professional range conservationists employed by State or county 
governments or Universities.
    Forest Products.--The Committee recommends $278,297,000 for 
forest products.
    The Committee is increasingly concerned about forest 
outputs and whether on-the-ground accomplishments remain a high 
priority for the Forest Service. In order to ensure an adequate 
and reliable flow of outputs to support the social and economic 
needs of small, forest-dependent communities, the Committee 
expects the Forest Service to maintain a performance management 
system that includes performance standards for every National 
Forest System line officer and specifies expected output levels 
for current and multi-year projects and programs. The Chief of 
the Forest Service is directed to provide a report to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations and the relevant House 
and Senate authorizing committees on this performance 
management system within 90 days of enactment. This information 
shall also be made available to the public following submission 
of the report to the committees noted above.
    The Committee is concerned with the ability of the Lincoln 
National Forest to undertake restoration and stewardship 
contracts. The Committee directs the Secretary of Agriculture 
to develop and execute at least one stewardship contract in 
excess of 15,000 acres on the Lincoln National Forest as 
authorized in Public Law 108-278 no later than June 1, 2006. 
The Secretary is directed to work with the Mescalero Apache 
Tribe and the New Mexico State Forester to assure the 
stewardship contract is drafted so that lands on the Lincoln 
National Forest are treated. The Secretary shall assure 
contract terms reflect maximum flexibility in order to allow 
the Tribe a reasonable chance of success. The Forest Service 
shall provide the Tribe with assistance in developing the 
stewardship proposal at no cost to the Tribe.
    The Committee has retained bill language included in prior 
years which allows the funds provided for timber pipeline 
supply above the normal regional allocation on the Tongass 
National Forest to be allocated between the Capital Improvement 
and Maintenance and the National Forest System appropriation. 
The amount provided for this purpose is $5,000,000.
    The Committee expects the Forest Service to continue 
preparing and submitting its quarterly reports on the timber 
sales program. The Committee recommends that the agency 
identify the volumes that are offered, sold, and harvested 
categorized as net merchantable sawtimber in its quarterly 
reports.
    Vegetation and Watershed Management.--The Committtee 
recommends $193,774,000 for vegetation and watershed 
management. Within the funds provided, $350,000 shall be used 
to continue Leafy Spurge eradication efforts in North Dakota.
    The Committee remains interested in the efforts of counties 
in Region 3 of the Forest Service to implement the county 
partnership on restoration and appreciate the funds that the 
Secretary has directed towards these efforts. The Committee 
expects the Secretary of Agriculture, to the extent 
practicable, to increase financial support for these programs 
and encourages the Secretary to provide additional funding from 
unobligated funds from the Forest Service and the Department of 
Agriculture to help fund these projects.
    Minerals and Geology Management.--The Committee recommends 
$73,791,000 for minerals and geology management.
    Landownership Management.--The Committee recommends 
$84,157,000 for landownership management.
    Law Enforcement Operations.--The Committee recommends 
$87,076,000 for law enforcement operations. Within the funds 
provided, $900,000 shall be provided for counterdrug operations 
on the Daniel Boone National Forest and $750,000 is for the 
Forest Service to develop, in consultation with local law 
enforcement officials, an emergency warning system for the 
Spring Mountains NRA in Nevada.
    The Committee has included bill language under 
administrative provisions that allows the transfer of funds 
from other accounts to the law enforcement program. These 
transfers are necessary to realign the law enforcement budget 
so that it will pay full indirect costs in the same fashion as 
all other agency programs.
    Valles Caldera.--The Committee has provided $3,650,000 for 
the Valles Caldera Trust for management activities at the Baca 
Ranch, New Mexico which is $2,658,000 above the request.
    Other.--The Committee directs that overall funding for the 
Land Between the Lakes NRA be no less than $7,900,000. The 
Forest Service should determine the funding mix from all 
accounts.
    The Committee did not move funds for hazardous fuels 
reduction from the wildland fire account to the National Forest 
System appropriation as proposed in the request. However, the 
Committee has included bill language under the wildland fire 
management appropriation allowing transfer of these funds to 
the National Forest System account at the discretion of the 
Chief of the Forest Service following notification of the 
Committee.

                        WILDLAND FIRE MANAGEMENT


                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2005 (including emergency 
    appropriations).....................................  $2,098,487,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   1,444,267,000
House allowance.........................................   1,790,506,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,745,531,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Wildland Fire Management provides funding for fire 
management including preparedness and fire suppression 
operations on National Forest System and adjacent lands, and 
also supports the National Fire Plan. The program seeks to 
protect life, property, and natural resources on the 
192,000,000 acres of National Forest System lands, as well as 
on an additional 20,000,000 acres of adjacent State and private 
lands. The program recognizes that wildfire is a critical 
natural process that must be integrated into land and resource 
management plans and activities on a landscape scale across 
agency boundaries.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends a total appropriation of 
$1,745,531,000 for wildland fire management activities, which 
is $352,956,000 below the enacted level, $301,264,000 above the 
request, and $44,975,000 below the House recommendation. Of the 
increase above the request, $281,000,000 is explained by virtue 
of keeping the hazardous fuels reduction program in the fire 
account instead of moving it to the National Forest System 
appropriation as proposed in the request. The Committee has 
included bill language allowing transfer of these funds to the 
National Forest System account following notification of the 
Committees on Appropriations.
    The Committee recommendation includes $676,014,000 for 
preparedness. Funding for the joint fire science program is not 
included under preparedness but instead the Committee has 
provided these funds in the other fire operations account at 
the requested level of $8,000,000.
    The Committee notes once again that the amounts proposed 
for preparedness in the request do not appear to be adequate to 
maintain the agency's firefighting readiness capability at 
current levels. Maintaining a robust initial attack capability 
is a critical component of the National Fire Plan and also 
reduces the overall costs of firefighting by containing fires 
before they escalate and cause loss of life and property as 
well as natural resource damage. Therefore, the agency shall 
analyze current readiness levels to determine whether 
maintaining preparedness resources in the field at a level not 
less than fiscal year 2005 will, based on the best information 
available, result in lower overall firefighting costs. If the 
Forest Service makes such a determination, the Committee 
directs the Forest Service to adjust the levels for 
preparedness and suppression accordingly and report on these 
adjustments to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations. The Secretary of Agriculture should advise the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations in writing prior 
to the decision.
    The Committee has provided $700,492,000 for fire 
suppression. This level of funding exceeds the 10 year average 
for suppression by $45,560,000.
    The Committee has provided a total of $369,025,000 for 
other fire operations. As stated earlier, $281,000,000 is 
included for hazardous fuels reduction which fully funds the 
request. Of the funds provided for hazardous fuels reduction 
$1,500,000 shall be used to continue work on the Santa Fe 
Watershed Thinning Project on the Santa Fe National Forest.
    The Committee understands that the Forest Service plans to 
expend $1,600,000 during fiscal year 2006 for work at the 
Ecological Restoration Institute [ERI] at Northern Arizona 
University through a cooperative agreement between the parties. 
The Committee believes this is an efficient arrangement for 
furthering the agency's mission in reducing hazardous fuels.
    The remaining funds within the other fire appropriations 
account are allocated as follows, $18,385,000 for research and 
development, which is $1,500,000 above the request; $2,000,000 
for rehabilitation and restoration; $8,000,000 for the joint 
fire science program; $40,179,000 for the State fire assistance 
program; $7,889,000 for volunteer fire assistance; and 
$11,572,000 for forest health activities as proposed in the 
request.
    Within the funds provided for research and development, 
$1,500,000 shall be allocated to the National Center for 
Landscape Fire Analysis at the University of Montana, of which 
$350,000 shall be to continue work in conjunction with the 
University of Idaho on the FRAMES project.
    Within the funds provided for State fire assistance, 
$6,500,000 is for activities in Alaska, primarily in areas 
affected by the Spruce Bark Beetle which has caused a severe 
fire danger in areas adjacent to many communities. These funds 
are to be distributed as follows: $2,100,000 to the Kenai 
Peninsula Borough, $1,500,000 to the Municipality of Anchorage 
to remove dead and dying trees caused by Spruce Bark beetle, 
$1,000,000 for the Fairbanks North Star Borough, $1,600,000 for 
the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, and $300,000 for the Cook Inlet 
Tribal Council. Each of the amounts in this paragraph shall be 
distributed in the form of an advanced direct lump sum payment. 
None of the funds may be used for the purchase of equipment.
    The Committee notes that progress has been made in treating 
the forest health and hazardous fuels problems facing many 
forests. The Committee believes that greater funding for the 
hazardous fuels program, the passage of the Healthy Forests 
Restoration Act, and authorization of stewardship contracting 
are playing an important role in addressing the unhealthy state 
of many Federal forests. However, the Committee is concerned 
that prescribed burning treatments may not always be compatible 
with the need to better utilize commercially valuable biomass 
products. The Forest Service shall coordinate with the Bureau 
of Land Management to develop an annual report that describes 
by administrative unit (National Forest or BLM District) the 
number of acres of each fire regime and condition class managed 
during the previous year and which method of treatment was 
utilized. In addition, the report shall include the quantity of 
commercially valuable biomass products from the treatment areas 
prior to prescribed burning.
    The Secretary of Agriculture shall establish utilization 
goals for hazardous fuels reduction and restoration projects 
that include volume (in tons and acres treated) of low-value 
and small diameter trees. The Secretary shall also report to 
Congress on the percentage of contracts that contained 
utilization criteria that were awarded to enterprises as 
directed in section 202 of Public Law 108-148. The Committee 
recognizes that utilization of timber related biomass is 
largely market driven but the Committee directs the Secretary 
to encourage utilization of small diameter trees by making 
those trees available to markets and by reducing barriers to 
this use through flexible contract provisions. Utilization 
goals shall include low-value and small diameter trees used for 
the full range of wood products, including timber, engineered 
lumber, paper and pulp, furniture and value added commodities, 
pellets, and other innovative uses, as well as bio-energy and 
bio-based products such as plastics, ethanol and diesel. The 
Committee believes that supporting new markets for low-value 
and small diameter trees will help to reduce the costs of 
hazardous fuels reduction projects and allow the agency to 
treat more acres.

enacted level (excluding emergency appropriations), $28,959,000 
above the budget request, and $58,509,000 below the House 
recommendation.

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

    Facilities.--The Committee recommends $120,666,000 for 
facilities capital improvement and maintenance. Of the funds 
provided $51,522,000 is for maintenance and $69,144,000 is for 
capital improvement. Increases above the request are for the 
following projects: $950,000 is for facilities improvements on 
the Monongahela National Forest, $2,000,000 is continue work on 
the Smith County Lake project in Mississippi, and $1,500,000 is 
for various infrastructure improvement on the Valles Caldera 
Preserve. The Committee has not included $10,000,000 for the 
Forest Products Lab [FPL] as proposed in the request. Instead 
the Committee has provided $2,800,000 for this project which 
will allow the FPL to complete work on the durability test 
facility. The agency has not undertaken a strategic analysis of 
this entire project which was recommended by a consultant hired 
by the Forest Service. The Committee believes that the agency 
should not go forward until it has completed a strategic plan 
to ensure that the project fits within the overall mission of 
the national research program over the long term.
    The Committee has included bill language under Title V 
which provides new authorities for the agency to sell unneeded 
facilities and retain the proceeds for maintenance and capital 
improvement needs. It is anticipated that the agency will raise 
in excess of $30,000,000 in fiscal year 2006 which will offset 
the reduction in appropriated funds. As part of this proposal, 
the agency will also establish a new working capital fund and 
assess each program area based on the amount of office space it 
occupies. This practice should provide an incentive for program 
managers to more efficiently utilize space and it will also 
reduce the Agency's deferred maintenance backlog.
    Roads.--The Committee recommends $215,568,000 for road 
maintenance and capital improvement. Of the funds provided, 
$148,066,000 is for maintenance and $67,502,000 is for capital 
improvement. Increases above the request are $2,300,000 for 
road improvements on the Monongahela National Forest, 
$4,000,000 for road improvements on the Tongass National 
Forest, and $3,000,000 for improvements on the Jarbidge Canyon 
Road in Nevada. The Committee has included bill language 
allowing the Forest Service to transfer a portion of the funds 
for the Jarbidge project to the Bureau of Land Management and 
the Fish and Wildlife Service in order to expedite the project.
    Trails.--The Committee recommends $63,792,000 for trail 
maintenance and capital improvement. Of these funds $37,540,000 
is for trail maintenance and $26,252,000 is for capital 
improvements.
    Infrastructure Improvement.--The Committee recommends 
$9,725,000 for infrastructure improvement.

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

    The Committee has previously provided funding for Pacific 
Northwest Streams projects located in Oregon and Washington and 
understands some funds remain unspent. The Committee expects 
the purchase of the Rader property located in the Mount Baker-
Snoqualmie National Forest to receive the highest priority for 
funding using these unobligated sums.
    From the funds made available for land acquisition for the 
Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, the Committee 
requests the Forest Service consider the acquisition of GIP 
Tract number 432 located at township 1 north, range 5 east, 
section 16, W.M., in Skamania County at a fair market value as 
determined by Federal appraisal guidelines. The Forest Service 
shall report back to the Committee prior to March 15, 2006, if 
the service and parcel owner are unable to agree on fair market 
value.
    Due to continued constraints on funding for land 
acquisition and the ongoing prospect of borrowing for fire 
suppression, it remains important that funding provided for 
land acquisition be obligated promptly. The Committee notes the 
annual unobligated balance reporting requirement included in 
its fiscal year 2004 report, and urges timely submission of the 
report.
    The Committee is aware of the pressing land acquisition 
needs in the Wisconsin National Forests (Chequamegon and 
Nicolet) and will consider options to address these needs as 
the bill proceeds.

    Language is included which authorizes the Forest Service to 
provide funds to the National Forest Foundation to match up to 
$3,300,000 in private contributions on a 1-for-1 basis for 
projects on National Forest System lands or related to Forest 
Service programs. The Committee has authorized up to $350,000 
of Federal funds to be used for administrative expenses of the 
Foundation.

    Language is included which allows the Forest Service to 
transfer appropriated funds to the Bureau of Land Management 
from the National Forest System account for work related to the 
management of wild horses and burros. The amount of funds 
transferred with this authority should be displayed in 
subsequent budget justifications.

                         INDIAN HEALTH SERVICES

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $2,596,492,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   2,732,298,000
House allowance.........................................   2,732,298,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,732,323,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Indian Health Service [IHS] is the Agency within the 
Department of Health and Human Services that has responsibility 
for providing Federal health services to American Indians and 
Alaska Natives. The provision of health services to members of 
federally recognized tribes grew out of the special government-
to-government relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes. This relationship, established in 1787, is based 
on Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, and has been given 
form and substance by numerous treaties, laws, Supreme Court 
decisions, and Executive Orders.
    The IHS currently provides health services to approximately 
1.5 million American Indians and Alaska Natives who belong to 
more than 557 federally recognized tribes in 35 States. IHS 
services are provided directly and through tribally contracted 
and operated health programs. Health services also include 
health care purchased from more than 9,000 private providers 
annually. The Federal system consists of 36 hospitals, 61 
health centers, 49 health stations, and 5 residential treatment 
centers. In addition, 34 urban Indian health projects provide a 
variety of health and referral services.
    The IHS clinical staff consist of approximately 2,700 
nurses, 900 physicians, 350 engineers, 450 pharmacists, 300 
dentists, 150 sanitarians and 83 physician assistants. The IHS 
also employs various allied health professionals, such as 
nutritionists, health administrators, engineers, and medical 
records administrators.
    Through Public Law 93-638 self-determination contracts, 
American Indian tribes and Alaska Native corporations 
administer 13 hospitals, 158 health centers, 28 residential 
treatment centers, 76 health stations, and 170 Alaska village 
clinics.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $2,732,323,000 for Indian health 
services, an increase of $135,831,000 above the fiscal year 
2005 enacted level and $25,000 above the budget request and the 
House allowance. The increase to the budget request is provided 
to increase base funding for the InMed program at the 
University of North Dakota to $775,000. In agreement with the 
budget request, the Committee has recommended operational 
increases of $29,301,000 for pay and benefits, $30,850,000 for 
the staffing of new facilities, $5,000,000 for contract support 
costs, $31,498,000 for population growth and $42,212,000 for 
medical inflation. It is the Committee's understanding that all 
programs funded within the services appropriation are assumed 
to be recurring unless specifically designated to the contrary. 
The Committee expects the Service to manage its loan repayment 
program in the same manner as it has previous years.
    Language is retained in the bill designating $15,000,000 
for alcohol prevention and treatment work in Alaska, from which 
amounts are to be distributed among the program's participants 
as specified in the joint explanatory statement accompanying 
the fiscal 2005 conference report (House Rept. 108-792). The 
budget request proposed to eliminate the direction associated 
with these funds. Language is also retained in the bill in 
Title IV, General Provisions, continuing the demonstration 
program of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe in South Dakota, 
which provides bonus payments to health professionals. This 
provision, too, was proposed for elimination in the budget 
request. In agreement with the budget request, the Committee 
supports continued funding for the Alaska Federal Health Care 
Access Network, InPsych programs at the University of Montana 
and the University of North Dakota, as well as the Recruitment 
of American Indians into Nursing [RAIN] program at the 
University of North Dakota, at no less than the current year 
enacted levels. The Committee remains supportive of the 
Service's work with the Joslin diabetes program and encourages 
the continuation of this collaborative effort in the coming 
fiscal year.
    The Committee has included language in the bill to provide 
the Bureau of Indian Affairs with access to Indian Health 
Service records as necessary for the implementation of certain 
provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. 
Specifically, the Act provides for the creation of a 
comprehensive system of coordinated services to ensure adequate 
health and human services for American Indian and Alaska Native 
children with disabilities, who are enrolled in Bureau-funded 
schools, and this provision provides a mechanism for 
identifying those children.
    The Committee is pleased to receive an interim report from 
the Indian Health Service on the implementation of the Special 
Diabetes Program for Indians established in the Balanced Budget 
Act of 1997. Diabetes is a particularly serious chronic disease 
that disproportionately affects American Indians and Alaska 
Natives. This program will provide over $1,100,000,000 for 
prevention and treatment programs over 10-year period. The 
interim report provides valuable information on the extent of 
this serious disease, best practice models that have been 
developed to prevent and treat diabetes, and on the utilization 
of these funds to provide actual services to native peoples. 
This knowledge will help build a stronger, more effective 
program in future years.

                        INDIAN HEALTH FACILITIES

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $388,574,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     315,668,000
House allowance.........................................     370,774,000
Committee recommendation................................     335,643,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Indian health services are provided in over 500 IHS and 
tribal health care facilities scattered throughout many States, 
mostly in rural and isolated areas. Total space is over 1.4 
million square meters, of which the Government owns 
approximately 65 percent and the tribes 35 percent. The IHS 
health facilities account provides funds for the maintenance 
and improvement, sanitation, health facilities construction, 
equipment, and environmental health support programs operated 
by the Service.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $335,643,000 for Indian health 
facilities, a decrease of $52,931,000 from the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level, an increase of $19,975,000 above the budget 
request, and a decrease of $35,131,000 below the House 
allowance. Changes to the budget request include increases of 
$975,000 for maintenance and improvement, and $2,000,000 for 
facilities and environmental health support. This last amount 
is provided to assist the Service, through its headquarters 
operations, in addressing inherently Federal functions such as 
new real property asset management requirements. A proposed 
increase of $17,000,000 for health facilities construction will 
provide a total amount of $20,326,000 for these activities, to 
be distributed as follows:

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

    The Committee understands that funds provided for the Fort 
Belknap staff quarters will complete this construction project. 
The amount provided to the Phoenix Indian Medical Center is to 
be used to start construction of the SW ambulatory care clinic. 
Funds for the Barrow hospital are provided to complete design 
of the facility and begin construction. The amount specified 
for the Nome hospital will be used to continue planning and 
design of the facility. In conjunction with this project, the 
Committee has included language in the bill authorizing the 
Service to construct a facility on land owned by the Norton 
Sound Health Corporation.
    As in previous years, the Committee urges the Service that 
funding for construction of a new drinking water system for the 
Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of the Fort Hall Reservation in Idaho 
should continue at the highest level possible within the 
current IHS priority list for the sanitation facilities 
construction program.
    Both the budget request and the Committee recommendation 
for health facilities construction for fiscal year 2006 contain 
substantially lower funding levels than amounts provided in 
previous years. The administration has proposed a pause in 
construction while attempting to bolster health services 
funding to more adequately reflect the level of need throughout 
Indian country. In large part, the Committee concurs with this 
temporary arrangement, particularly since the Service, in 
consultation with the tribes, is still in the midst of revising 
its construction priority system. The Committee understands 
that this situation is temporary and, therefore, expects to see 
a more aggressive construction schedule planned in future 
budget requests. In the meantime, the Committee strongly urges 
the Service to complete its revisions and issue a new policy 
for construction priorities that better accommodates tribal 
needs. The Committee notes that the Service has been studying 
this issue at length for several years and, therefore, should 
be in a position to complete its work in the very near future.
    The Committee is aware that Public Law 108-437, the ``Three 
Affiliated Tribes Health Facility Compensation Act,'' was 
enacted on December 3, 2004. As stated in the congressional 
findings of that Act, the United States made a commitment in 
1949 to replace vital infrastructure on the Fort Berthold 
Indian Reservation. That infrastructure was lost as a result of 
flooding associated with the construction of the Garrison Dam 
and Reservoir. While the Committee wishes to reiterate this 56-
year-old commitment, it also recognizes that funding for 
construction of Indian Health Service facilities is currently 
limited to only those facilities already on the IHS 
construction priority list, and that the facility authorized by 
the Act is not on that list. The Committee does not wish to 
bypass the current priority list, since some of the projects on 
that list have been waiting a decade or more to be funded. 
However, the Committee does recognize the unique Federal 
responsibility for replacing the facility on the Fort Berthold 
Reservation and expects the Federal Government to fulfill its 
promise. The Committee therefore urges the administration to 
give this project full and fair consideration as the priority 
list is updated.

                     National Institutes of Health

    The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, an 
agency within the National Institutes of Health, was authorized 
in section 311(a) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended, to conduct 
multidisciplinary research and training activities associated 
with the Nation's Hazardous Substance Superfund program, and in 
section 126(g) of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorizations 
Act of 1986, to conduct training and education of workers who 
are or may be engaged in activities related to hazardous waste 
removal or containment or emergency response.

House allowance.........................................      80,289,000
Committee recommendation................................      80,289,000

    The Committee recommends $80,289,000 for the National 
Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, an increase of 
$447,000 over the fiscal year 2005 enacted level and the same 
as the budget request and the House allowance.

            Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry

    The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry 
[ATSDR], an agency of the Public Health Service, was created in 
section 104(i) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980. The ATSDR's primary 
mission is to conduct surveys and screening programs to 
determine relationships between exposure to toxic substances 
and illness. Other activities include the maintenance and 
annual update of a list of hazardous substances most commonly 
found at Superfund sites, the preparation of toxicological 
profiles on each such hazardous substance, consultations on 
health issues relating to exposure to hazardous or toxic 
substances, and the development and implementation of certain 
research activities related to ATSDR's mission.

            TOXIC SUBSTANCES AND ENVIRONMENTAL PUBLIC HEALTH

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $76,041,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      76,024,000
House allowance.........................................      76,024,000
Committee recommendation................................      76,024,000

    The Committee recommends $76,024,000 for the Agency for 
Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, which is a decrease of 
$17,000 from the fiscal year 2005 enacted level and the same as 
the budget request and the House recommendation.
    The Committee recognizes that significant savings have been 
achieved through the consolidation of ATSDR administrative 
functions within the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. 
The Committee remains interested in seeing that administrative 
costs are assigned to benefiting agencies in an equitable and 
transparent manner, and urges that a more thorough discussion 
of these costs and charges be included in future ATSDR budget 
justifications.

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Council on Environmental Quality/Office of 
Environmental Quality was established by the National 
Environmental Policy Act and the Environmental Quality 
Improvement Act of 1970. The Council serves as a source of 
environmental expertise and policy analysis for the White 
House, Executive Office of the President, and other Federal 
agencies. CEQ promulgates regulations binding on all Federal 
agencies to implement the procedural provisions of the National 
Environmental Policy Act and resolves interagency environmental 
disputes informally and through issuance of findings and 
recommendations.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $2,717,000 for the Council on 
Environmental Quality and Office of Environmental Quality, 
which is a decrease of $541,000 from the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level and the same as the budget request and the House 
recommendation. The decrease from the enacted level is largely 
a result of health center and space costs being centralized in 
the Office of Administration within the Executive Office of the 
President.

             Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board

    The Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board was 
authorized by the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 to 
investigate accidental releases of certain chemical substances 
resulting in, or that may cause, serious injury, death, 
substantial property damage, or serious adverse effects on 
human health. It became operational in fiscal year 1998.

    The Committee recommends $9,200,000 for the Chemical Safety 
and Hazard Investigation Board, the same as the budget request 
and a decrease of $224,000 from the fiscal year 2005 enacted 
level. The change from the enacted level is comprised of an 
increase of $173,000 for salaries and expenses and a reduction 
of $397,000 for the emergency fund.
    The Committee has again included bill language limiting the 
number of career senior executive service positions to three 
and bill language identifying the EPA Inspector General as the 
Inspector General for the Board.

              Office of Navajo and Hopi Indian Relocation

    The Office of Navajo and Hopi Indian Relocation was 
established by Public law 93-531, and is authorized for 
appropriation through fiscal year 2008 following the enactment 
of Public Law 108-204. The Office is charged with planning and 
conducting relocation activities associated with the settlement 
of land disputes between the Navajo Nation and Hopi Tribe. The 
Office continues relocation efforts and is slated to move 110 
clients to new lands in fiscal year 2006.

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $8,601,000, 
which $3,671,000 above the fiscal year 2005 enacted level and 
equal to both the budget request and the House recommendation. 
The reduced level in fiscal year 2005 was due to the use of 
carry over funds.

    Institute of American Indian and Alaska Native Culture and Arts 
                              Development

    The Institute of American Indian and Alaska Native Culture 
and Arts Development [IAIA] was founded in 1962 as a Bureau of 
Indian Affairs [BIA] high school. The Institute was moved out 
of the BIA in 1988 to become a federally chartered 4-year 
college governed by a board of trustees appointed by the 
President and confirmed by the Senate. Its mission is to serve 
as the national center of research, training, language and 
scholarship for Native Americans and Alaska Natives through the 
dedicated study, creative application, preservation and care of 
Native cultures and arts. Today, IAIA is fully accredited by 
the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and by 
the National Association of Schools of Arts and Design, the 
only national professional accrediting agency in higher 
education covering the entire field of art and design that is 
recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. In addition to 
its academic programs, IAIA houses the National Collection of 
Contemporary Indian Art and carries the designation as the 
National Repository for Native Languages. IAIA's operations are 
funded by direct Federal support and a diversified private 
sector approach to foundations, corporations, tribes and 
individual donors.

                        Smithsonian Institution


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $489,035,000

Committee recommendation................................     524,135,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Congress established the Smithsonian Institution in 1846 to 
administer a large bequest left to the United States by James 
Smithson, an English scientist, for the purpose of establishing 
in Washington, DC, an institution ``. . . for the increase and 
diffusion of knowledge among men.'' The act establishing the 
Smithsonian provided for the administration of the trust, 
independent of the Government itself, by a Board of Regents and 
a Secretary, who were given broad discretion in the use of 
these funds. The board was to be composed of both private 
citizens and members of all three branches of the Federal 
Government in order to ensure ``the wise and faithful use'' of 
the Institution's funds. The trust funds were permanently 
loaned to the Treasury to be maintained in a separate account; 
and the principal was to be maintained and the interest from 
that money used for the operation of the Institution. 
Construction of the Smithsonian Castle was completed in 1855 
and collections that the Government had accepted on behalf of 
the Institution were moved into the building. One hundred and 
fifty years since its doors first opened, the Smithsonian 
Institution today is the world's largest museum and research 
complex, housing approximately 144 million objects and 
specimens, and receiving an estimated 25 million visitors to 
its museums and nearly 40,000 visits by researchers to its 
facilities annually.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $524,135,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the Smithsonian Institution, an increase of 
$35,100,000, or 7 percent, above the fiscal year 2005 enacted 
level, which meets the budget request and is $246,000 below the 
House allowance.
    In agreement with the budget request, program increases 
include $9,000,000 for the reopening of the National Portrait 
Gallery and the American Art Museum, $1,000,000 for collections 
care, $1,000,000 for repatriation activities, $5,500,000 for 
facilities maintenance, $940,000 for IT programs, and $452,000 
for audit costs. An amount of $18,401,000 is provided to meet 
fixed cost adjustments such as pay, rent, and utilities. An 
increase of $2,428,000 is provided for operations of the 
National Zoological Park, which is $154,000 above the budget 
request for this activity. The Committee has not agreed to the 
proposed increase of $1,154,000 for the National Museum of 
African American History and Culture and continues funding at 
the current year enacted level of $3,944,000. The Committee 
remains supportive of this new museum and will make every 
effort to meet future requests for additional funds, either 
through the annual budget process or by reprogramming request, 
as the pace of development accelerates. Decreases proposed in 
the budget request and agreed to by the Committee include 
$1,732,000 for non-recurring costs of the National Museum of 
the American Indian, $949,000 for deferred telephone 
modernization work, $440,000 for the Information Resource 
Management Pool and $500,000 for a soils research initiative at 
STRI. The Committee does not agree to the proposed reduction of 
$1,000,000 to the Institution's Outreach activity and has 
restored that amount to ensure the funding for programs such as 
SITES will be continued at no less than the current year 
enacted levels.
    Administrative provisions relating to the Smithsonian 
Institution, which have been carried in this bill in past 
years, have not been included by the Committee this year. The 
Smithsonian should continue, however, to make every effort to 
consult with the House and Senate Appropriations Committees 
prior to undertaking any activity that would have a substantive 
impact on its programs and/or annual appropriation. As a part 
of this effort, the Smithsonian should review the revised 
reprogramming guidelines included in the front of this report 
to ensure that it will be in full compliance with these 
requirements.

                           FACILITIES CAPITAL

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $126,123,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      90,900,000
House allowance.........................................      90,900,000
Committee recommendation................................     100,000,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Smithsonian Institution's facilities inventory has 
expanded over the years to include 18 museums and galleries, 10 
science centers, a zoo, and other facilities--most located in 
or near Washington, DC, with others in Massachusetts, New York, 
Florida, Arizona, Hawaii, and the Republic of Panama. These 
facilities include about 660 buildings and structures, owned 
and leased, ranging from major museum buildings to storage 
buildings and storage sheds. There are about 8.6 million square 
feet of owned space and 1 million square feet of leased space. 
More than half of the buildings owned by the Smithsonian are 
more than 25 years old, 6 are designated as National Historic 
Landmarks and about 40 are listed on the National Register of 
Historic Places or otherwise eligible for special consideration 
under Federal guidelines for historic buildings. The 
Smithsonian's growth will continue for the foreseeable future 
with the construction of an aircraft restoration area at the 
Udvar-Hazy Center, which should be completed in 2008, and the 
design and construction of a National Museum of African 
American History and Culture, authorized by Congress in 2003. 
This vast campus, much of which houses priceless collections 
and is open to the public daily, presents significant 
challenges for meeting the repair, revitalization, and 
construction requirements of the Institution.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $100,000,000 for the Smithsonian 
Institution's facilities capital program, a decrease of 
$26,123,000 from the fiscal year 2005 enacted level and an 
increase of $9,100,000 over the budget request and the House 
allowance. The reduction from the enacted level reflects, in 
part, a decrease of $44,000,000 resulting from completion of 
the restoration of the Patent Office Building.
    Increases proposed in the budget request and supported by 
the Committee for revitalization activities include $8,400,000 
for the National Museum of American History for a total project 
amount of $18,400,000; $5,800,000 for the National Museum of 
Natural History for a total project amount of $12,800,000; 
$7,900,000 for anti-terrorism protection; and an additional 
$9,000,000 for a total of $15,000,000 for other smaller 
revitalization projects throughout the Institution. An increase 
of $9,100,000 above the budget request of $9,000,000 for 
construction provides a total of $18,100,000 for the POD 5 
Museum Support Center storage facility that will house 
approximately 365,000 gallons of alcohol-stored collections 
when completed. An increase of $1,100,000 for facilities 
planning and design provides a total amount of $9,000,000 for 
these activities in the coming fiscal year. Decreases of 
$44,000,000 for completion of the Patent Office Building, 
$6,500,000 for activities at the National Zoological Park, and 
$17,600,000 for the Arts and Industries building closure have 
also been assumed in agreement with the budget request. An 
amount of $5,800,000 remains in the budget to complete the 
relocation of staff, collections and equipment from the Arts 
and Industries building. To date, $13,200,000 has been 
appropriated to initiate design of the future restoration of 
this historic landmark. The reduction to the budget for the 
National Zoo provides a base of $13,000,000 for its facilities 
capital projects.
    In recent months, there has been much focus on the proposed 
canopy design that would enclose the courtyard of the Old 
Patent Office Building. The National Capital Planning 
Commission approved both the concept and the preliminary design 
for the canopy. The Commission of Fine Arts completed its 
review in January 2005, approving the final design of the 
canopy enclosure, but not approving the Smithsonian's 
submission for reconstruction of the south stairs to the 
building. Both the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation 
and the National Capital Planning Commission have since 
rejected the canopy or any roof enclosure unless a commitment 
is made to reconstruct the south stairs, the same proposal 
rejected by the Commission of Fine Arts earlier in the process. 
The Committee understands the Smithsonian has committed to 
reconstruct the south stairs with private funds. With 
disagreement among the reviewing agencies, and the Smithsonian 
now forced to incur additional costs of no less than $7,000,000 
to $10,000,000 as work is stopped on a project that in concept 
was authorized by Public Law 108-72, the Committee finds it 
highly unfortunate that accommodation appears to be beyond the 
reach of all interested parties. The Committee further notes 
the difficulty inherent in providing additional Federal funding 
for revitalization work outside the scope of the original 
project given current budgetary constraints. The Committee 
urges the Smithsonian and the National Capital Planning 
Commission to work together to reach an agreement so this 
project can go forward as authorized.

                        National Gallery of Art

    The National Gallery of Art was created in 1937 by a joint 
resolution of Congress accepting Andrew W. Mellon's gift to the 
Nation of his art collection. The generosity of the Mellon 
family also provided the funds to construct the Gallery's two 
landmark buildings, the West Building, designed by Alexander 
Pope and completed in 1941, and the East Building, completed in 
1978 and designed by I.M. Pei. In 1999, an outdoor sculpture 
garden was created with funding from the Cafritz Foundation. 
Today, these two buildings and the Sculpture Garden form a 
museum complex that houses one of the world's premier art 
collections. Since its founding, Federal funds have been 
appropriated to ensure the operation and maintenance and the 
protection and care of this collection, enabling the Gallery to 
remain open 363 days a year at no charge to visitors. Private 
contributions are used by the Gallery for art acquisition and 
conservation, scholarly and scientific research, exhibitions, 
and educational outreach programs.

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $91,708,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      97,100,000
House allowance.........................................      97,100,000
Committee recommendation................................      96,600,000

    The Committee recommends $96,600,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the National Gallery of Art, an increase of 
$4,892,000 above the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, and a 
decrease of $500,000 below the budget request and the House 
allowance. The decrease from the budget request has been taken 
as a general reduction to be met through administrative 
savings. Additional funds are provided for the Gallery to meet 
its fixed costs increases for pay, benefits, utilities, and 
other operational requirements. The table at the back of the 
report displays the distribution of funds among the Gallery's 
various activities.

            REPAIR, RESTORATION, AND RENOVATION OF BUILDINGS

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $10,946,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      16,200,000
House allowance.........................................      16,200,000
Committee recommendation................................      15,000,000

    The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for the repair, 
restoration and renovation of facilities at the National 
Gallery of Art, a decrease of $1,200,000 from the budget 
request and an increase of $4,054,000 above the fiscal year 
2005 enacted level.
    In fiscal years 2004 and 2005, funding for facilities 
capital projects was reduced in order to provide additional 
funds for critical needs in areas such as information 
technology and security. The increase proposed for fiscal year 
2006 would restore this account to a level that more adequately 
meets the Gallery's annual facilities requirements as detailed 
in its Master Facilities Plan.
    In fiscal year 2006 renovation will begin on the West 
Building chiller plant. Construction will also begin on Work 
Area #3 at the West Building's east end, a space that includes 
some of the art conservation laboratories, an art storage vault 
and galleries on the main floor. Mechanical, electrical and 
plumbing systems will be renovated and fire protection/life 
safety improvements made. While the first phases of this 
project will be initiated in fiscal year 2006, the bulk of the 
work to be accomplished will occur in fiscal year 2007. In 
order to avoid scheduling delays and related additional costs, 
the Committee has included bill language authorizing the 
Gallery to contract for the full scope of the project.
    In reviewing the table of project costs associated with the 
Master Facilities Plan, the Committee notes that annual rental 
costs of $2,500,000 are included as an off-site relocation 
expense in the facilities account. The Committee recognizes the 
need for temporary swing space during major construction 
activity and had been informed by the Gallery that such rental 
space would be necessary through 2012/13. However, as there is 
now an extended off-site relocation plan estimated at 
$29,400,000 for fiscal years 2016 and beyond, it would appear 
that the relocation of staff to rental space is relatively 
permanent. In the Committee's view, therefore, this amount 
should be shown in future budget submissions as an annual 
operating expense within the salaries and expenses account 
rather than absorbed into the no-year appropriation for 
construction.

             John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

    Originally established in 1958 as the National Cultural 
Center and an independently administered bureau of the 
Smithsonian Institution, the John F. Kennedy Center for the 
Performing Arts was designated a living memorial to President 
Kennedy in 1964. The Kennedy Center building was constructed 
with a combination of private contributions, Federal matching 
funds and long-term revenue bonds held by the U.S. Department 
of Treasury. Since 1972, Congress has provided funds for the 
operations and repair of the presidential monument, initially 
through the National Park Service and since 1995 to the Kennedy 
Center Board of Trustees. Approximately 87 percent of the 
Center's total annual operating budget is derived from non-
appropriated funds such as ticket sales, auxiliary income, 
investment income and private contributions to support 
performing arts programming and administrative activities.

                       OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $16,914,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      17,800,000
House allowance.........................................      17,800,000
Committee recommendation................................      17,800,000

    The Committee recommends $17,800,000 for operations and 
maintenance of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing 
Arts, an increase of $886,000 above the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level, which is the same amount as the budget request 
and the House allowance. Additional funding is provided to 
assist the Kennedy Center in meeting its fixed cost increases 
for pay, benefits, utilities and facilities maintenance 
contracts.

                              CONSTRUCTION

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $16,107,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      15,200,000
House allowance.........................................      10,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      15,200,000

    The Committee recommends $15,200,000 for the Kennedy 
Center's construction program, a reduction of $907,000 below 
the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, the same amount as the 
budget request and an increase of $5,200,000 above the House 
allowance.
    Life safety and accessibility issues, as well as the repair 
of aging building systems, will continue to be addressed in 
fiscal year 2006, with a primary focus on the Eisenhower 
Theater. The project monthly progress reports prepared by the 
Center have proven to be a useful tool for providing current 
information on construction activities and should continue to 
be shared with the Committee as they become available.
    The Committee is aware that the Government Accountability 
Office [GAO] recently completed a facilities review that cast 
some doubt on the adequacy of fire protection measures put in 
place by the Center during recent renovations. The Committee is 
concerned that any outstanding safety issues be addressed as 
quickly as possible to ensure that the Center is meeting in 
full its responsibility to protect the visiting public. The 
Committee supports the Kennedy Center's intention to hire a 
qualified independent fire protection engineering firm at the 
earliest possible date to conduct a peer review of the modeling 
study and the life safety issues raised by the GAO. The 
Committee expects to be kept informed as this process moves 
forward and the analysis is completed.

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $8,863,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................       9,201,000
House allowance.........................................       9,085,000
Committee recommendation................................       9,201,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is the 
living, national memorial to President Wilson established by 
Congress in 1968 and headquartered in Washington, DC. It's 
mission is to commemorate the ideals and concerns of the former 
president by providing a link between the world of ideas and 
the world of policy; and by fostering research, study, 
discussion and collaboration among a full spectrum of 
individuals concerned with policy and scholarship in national 
and world affairs. The Woodrow Wilson Center is a nonpartisan 
institution that is supported by a combination of public and 
private funds.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $9,201,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for 
Scholars, an increase of $338,000 above the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level, the same amount as the budget request and 
$116,000 above the House allowance. The proposed increase will 
assist the Center in meeting escalating fixed costs such as pay 
and stipend adjustments. The Committee expects these funds to 
be distributed among the Center's various program activities as 
displayed in the budget request.

           National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities


                    National Endowment for the Arts

    Established in 1965 as an independent agency of the Federal 
Government, the National Endowment for the Arts is the official 
arts organization of the United States Government. The 
Endowment is the largest annual funder of the arts in the 
United States, helping to create regional theater, opera, 
ballet, symphony orchestras, museums and other arts 
organizations that Americans now enjoy. In its 38-year history, 
the National Endowment for the Arts has awarded more than 
120,000 grants that have brought art to Americans in 
communities both large and small. The Arts Endowment, through 
its competitive, peer reviewed grants process, uses the 
majority of its annual operating funds to awards grants to non-
profit organizations for arts education, arts outreach, 
artistic excellence and partnership agreements. In addition to 
those activities, State and jurisdictional arts agencies are 
awarded 40 percent of the Endowment's funds.

                       GRANTS AND ADMINISTRATION

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $121,264,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     121,264,000
House allowance.........................................     131,264,000
Committee recommendation................................     126,264,000

    The Committee recommends $126,264,000 for the National 
Endowment of the Arts, $5,000,000 above both the fiscal year 
2005 enacted level and the budget request and a reduction of 
$5,000,000 from the House allowance.
    Proposed changes to the Endowment's current activity 
levels, as outlined in the budget request, include a 
redirection of $1,304,000 from grants programs to 
administration/program support in order to maintain current 
services; a reduction of $6,505,000 to the Challenge America 
program; an increase of $6,028,000 for the American 
Masterpieces initiative; and an overall programmatic increase 
of $5,000,000. The Committee agrees to these proposals but 
emphasizes its expectation that the American Masterpieces 
program will be conducted through the same rigorous competition 
and peer review process that is applied to other Endowment 
programs.
    Language is included in the bill directing the Endowment to 
operate its grant programs in accordance with the provisions of 
sections 309 and 311 of Public Law 108-108 regarding priority 
for rural and underserved communities; priority for grants that 
encourage public knowledge, education, understanding, and 
appreciation of the arts; restrictions regarding individual 
grants, subgranting, and seasonal support; a 15-percent cap on 
the total amount of grant funds directed to any one State; and 
the designation of a category for grants of national 
significance. The Committee has also included language in title 
IV of the bill to make permanent the Endowment's authority to 
solicit and invest funds. The Committee has provided this 
authority on an annual basis for the last several years.
    The table at the back of the report displays the proposed 
distribution of funds among the Endowment's activities.
    The Committee recognizes the unique cultural, social and 
educational contributions of the performing arts. Many 
performing arts organizations in communities across the Nation 
are revitalizing urban areas and offering unique educational 
opportunities for students, the disabled and senior citizens. 
The Committee is also aware of the valuable work the performing 
arts have done for our military. The Committee congratulates 
the Endowment on the many successful grants it has provided to 
performing arts organizations in every State and urges it to 
continue this strong show of support for the performing arts.

                 National Endowment for the Humanities

    The National Endowment for the Humanities [NEH] was 
established by the 1965 National Foundation on the Arts and 
Humanities Act as an independent Federal agency of the United 
States Government dedicated to supporting research, education, 
preservation, and public programs in the humanities. Today, it 
is the largest funder of humanities programs in the Nation. 
NEH's longstanding tradition of a peer-reviewed competitive 
grant process is designed to ensure that the most meritorious 
projects are funded. Typically, NEH grants are used to support 
cultural institutions, such as museums, archives, libraries, 
colleges, universities, public television and radio stations, 
and individual scholars. The NEH, through its State-Federal 
partnership, also provides grants to State humanities councils 
in all 50 States and the 6 territories.

                       GRANTS AND ADMINISTRATION

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $122,156,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     122,605,000
House allowance.........................................     127,605,000
Committee recommendation................................     127,605,000

    The Committee recommends $127,605,000 for grants and 
administration of the National Endowment for the Humanities, an 
increase of $5,449,000 above the fiscal year 2005 enacted 
level, $5,000,000 above the budget request and equal to the 
House allowance.
    The increase proposed in the budget request would be 
derived by a commensurate reduction to the Matching Grants 
account, as described below, and would be applied to the 
administration activity to meet fixed cost increases. As in 
past years, the Committee expects the Endowment to involve the 
State humanities councils in the implementation of ``We the 
People'' programs to the same degree that it has to date. The 
table at the back of the report displays the proposed 
distribution of funds among the Endowment's various activities.
    The Committee has included language in title IV of the bill 
to provide the Endowment with permanent authority to solicit 
and invest funds. The Committee has included this language 
annually for the past several years.

                            MATCHING GRANTS

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $15,898,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      15,449,000
House allowance.........................................      15,449,000
Committee recommendation................................      15,449,000

    The Committee recommends $15,449,000 for the Matching 
Grants account of the National Endowment for the Humanities, a 
reduction of $449,000 from the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, 
and the same amount as the budget request and the House 
allowance. The Grants and Administration account has been 
increased by this same amount, thereby assisting the Endowment 
in maintaining current services and meeting fixed cost 
increases.

                        Commission of Fine Arts

    The Commission of Fine Arts was established in 1910 to fill 
the need for a permanent agency whose members would be 
qualified to make available to the Government expert opinion on 
questions of art and architecture. The Commission's mission, as 
design proposals are brought before it, is to safeguard and 
improve the appearance and symbolic significance of the City as 
a capital. The Commission provides knowledgeable advice on 
matters pertaining to architecture, landscape architecture, 
sculpture, painting and the decorative arts to all branches and 
departments of the Federal and District of Columbia governments 
when such matters affect the National Capital. The Commission 
also must approve of the site and design of all commemorative 
works and memorials erected in the District. The Commission 
advises on the design of circulating and commemorative coinage 
and must approve the siting and design for national memorials, 
both in the United States and on foreign soil, in accordance 
with the American Battle Monuments Act and the Commemorative 
Works Act. The Commission also administers the National Capital 
Arts and Cultural Affairs program, which was created by 
Congress to benefit nonprofit local cultural entities.

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $1,768,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................       1,893,000
House allowance.........................................       1,893,000
Committee recommendation................................       1,893,000

    The Committee recommends $1,893,000 for the Commission of 
Fine Arts, an increase of $125,000 above the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level, and the same amount as the budget request and 
the House allowance.
    Additional funds will assist the Commission in meeting 
anticipated increases in pay, benefits, rent and other 
operational expenses. An increase of $50,000 is included to 
cover costs charged by the Department of the Interior's 
National Business Center for producing and printing the 
baseline accounting reports necessary for conducting an audit 
as required by the Accountability of Tax Dollars Act of 2002. 
In the future, the Committee urges the Department of the 
Interior to account for the Commission as an add-on to the 
Departmental audit report contract, a move which would 
significantly lower the Commission's report production costs. 
Inasmuch as the Department provides other administrative 
services to the Commission on a reimbursable basis, it would 
seem that there is some precedent for extending this 
cooperation to the audit process.

               NATIONAL CAPITAL ARTS AND CULTURAL AFFAIRS

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $6,902,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................       7,000,000
House allowance.........................................       7,000,000
Committee recommendation................................       7,492,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The National Capital Arts and Cultural Affairs program was 
established by Public Law 99-190 to provide grants for general 
operating support to District of Columbia nonprofit arts and 
other cultural organizations. In fiscal year 1988, 
administrative responsibility for the program was transferred 
from the National Endowment for the Humanities to the 
Commission of Fine Arts. In fiscal year 2004, this program 
helped support 21 nationally renowned organizations in the 
Nation's capital, providing funding for operating expenses, 
jobs, and exhibits and performances that might not otherwise 
have been possible.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $7,492,000 for the National 
Capital Arts and Cultural Affairs program, an increase of 
$590,000 above the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, and an 
increase of $492,000 over the budget request and the House 
allowance.

               Advisory Council on Historic Preservation

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $4,536,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................       4,988,000
House allowance.........................................       4,860,000
Committee recommendation................................       4,943,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 established 
the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation as an independent 
Federal agency. The Council's mission is to promote the 
preservation, enhancement, and productive use of our Nation's 
historic resources, and advise the President and Congress on 
national historic preservation policy. It also provides a forum 
for discussion of Federal activities, programs, and policies 
that affect historic properties. One of the principal 
responsibilities of the Council is to implement Section 106 of 
the National Historic Preservation Act, which requires that the 
Council be given an opportunity to comment on the impacts of 
projects or actions undertaken by other Federal agencies on 
sites or structures eligible for inclusion in the National 
Register of Historic Places.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $4,943,000 for the Advisory 
Council on Historic Preservation, which is an increase of 
$407,000 over the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, a decrease of 
$45,000 from the budget request, and an increase of $83,000 
over the House recommendation. The amount provided does not 
include the increase requested for data analysis associated 
with production of a February 2006 report.

                  National Capital Planning Commission

    The National Capital Planning Commission [NCPC] was 
established in 1924 as a park planning agency. Two years later, 
the Agency's role was expanded to included comprehensive 
planning. The National Capital Planning Act of 1952 designated 
the NCPC as the central planning agency for the Federal 
Government in the National Capital Region. Major functions of 
the Commission include preparation and adoption of the Federal 
Elements of the Comprehensive Plan of the National Capital and 
review D.C. elements for the Federal interest; preparation and 
adoption of an annual 6-year Federal Capital Improvements 
Program report for the region containing land acquisition and 
development proposals from all Federal agencies; review of 
plans and proposals submitted to the Commission; and 
development of specialized plans for long-range development in 
the National Capital Region.

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $7,888,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................       8,344,000
House allowance.........................................       8,177,000
Committee recommendation................................       8,244,000

    The Committee recommends $8,244,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the National Capital Planning Commission, an 
increase of $356,000 above the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, 
$100,000 below the budget request, and $67,000 above the House 
allowance.
    The change to the budget request is a decrease of $100,000 
for a GIS mapping initiative. The Committee does not object to 
the Commission's participation in this multi-agency project to 
the extent it can be supported within base funding. The 
increase above the enacted level is provided to meet fixed cost 
adjustments such as pay and utilities.
    As it has done in past years, the Committee has included 
language in the bill permitting the use of up to one-quarter of 
1 percent of funds for official representational activities to 
be used only when hosting international visitors associated 
with the international capitals working group.

                United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

    The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum was created by 
Congress in 1980 through Public Law 96-388 with the mandate to 
operate and maintain a permanent living memorial museum to the 
victims of the Holocaust; provide appropriate ways for the 
Nation to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust through the 
annual national civic observances known as the Days of 
Remembrance; and carry out the recommendations of the 
President's Commission on the Holocaust. The building that 
houses the museum was constructed with private funds and opened 
to the public in 1993. Since that time, the museum has 
attracted 4-5 times the number of expected visitors and has 
been highly successful in its fundraising efforts. In fiscal 
year 2005, little more than a decade since the museum opened 
its doors, non-appropriated sources of funding comprise nearly 
50 percent of the museum's annual operating budget.

                       HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $40,858,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      43,233,000
House allowance.........................................      41,880,000
Committee recommendation................................      43,233,000

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $43,233,000 for expenses of the 
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, an increase of 
$2,375,000 above the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, the same 
amount as the budget request and $1,353,000 above the House 
allowance.
    Additional expenses anticipated by the museum in the coming 
fiscal year include $1,702,000 for federally mandated pay and 
grade increases, $404,000 in escalating contract costs for 
security, exhibition maintenance, IT network maintenance, and 
database administration, a $600,000 increase in GSA rent and an 
increase of $300,000 for utility costs.
    The Committee understands that during a recent inspection 
of the Ross Administrative Center building, museum facilities 
staff found that the large stone parapets along the roof line 
are no longer securely in place. Because of the threat to 
public safety, exterior stone restoration of this historic 
building will be required in the immediate future at an 
estimated cost of $1,300,000. The Committee notes that this 
unanticipated funding need will make it necessary for the 
museum to revisit the repair and rehabilitation program 
outlined in its fiscal year 2006 budget request. The museum 
should continue to keep the Committee informed as further 
adjustments to its $1,874,000 annual repair program are 
considered.

                             Presidio Trust

    Upon deciding that the U.S. Army would end its 148 year 
presence at the Presidio, Congress created the Presidio Trust 
as part of the Omnibus Parks and Public Lands Management Act of 
1996. The Trust's mission is to preserve and enhance the 
natural, cultural, scenic, and recreational resources of the 
Presidio for public use in perpetuity, and to achieve long-term 
financial sustainability through rental, lease and other 
revenues derived from the use of Presidio buildings and spaces. 
The Trust manages the interior 80 percent of Presidio lands 
(known as Area B), including most buildings and infrastructure. 
The National Park Service manages coastal areas (known as Area 
A) as part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. 
Appropriations for the Trust are expected to decline from year 
to year, and to cease entirely at or before the end of fiscal 
year 2012.

                          PRESIDIO TRUST FUND

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $19,722,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      20,000,000
House allowance.........................................      20,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      19,722,000

    The Committee recommends $19,722,000 for the Presidio 
Trust, which is the same as the fiscal year 2005 enacted level, 
and a decrease of $278,000 from the budget request and the 
House recommendation. The Committee recognizes that significant 
challenges remain if the Trust is to achieve self-sufficiency 
by its statutory deadline, but is unable to recommend an 
increased appropriation given current fiscal limitations. The 
Committee commends the Trust for the cost reductions it has 
achieved in recent years.

      White House Commission on the National Moment of Remembrance

Appropriations, 2004....................................        $248,000
Budget estimate, 2005...................................         250,000
House allowance.........................................         250,000
Committee recommendation................................         250,000

                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    The White House Commission on Remembrance was established 
by Congress through Public Law 106-579 to honor America's 
fallen, her veterans, and the men and women who continue to 
serve our country. The Commission has a 10-year mission to 
sustain the American spirit through acts of rememberance 
throughout the year; institutionalize the National Moment of 
Remembrance; enhance the commemoration and understanding of 
Memorial Day; and to educate and give the younger generation a 
sense of their country's history and what it means to be an 
American. The Commission is dedicated to educating this and 
future generations of Americans to remember the sacrifices and 
costs in human life made to preserve this Nation's freedom.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $250,000 for the White House 
Commission on the National Moment of Remembrance, the same 
amount as the budget request, $2,000 above the fiscal year 2005 
enacted level, and the same amount as the House allowance.

                      TITLE IV--GENERAL PROVISIONS

    The Committee has recommended inclusion of several general 
provisions in the bill including the following:
    Sec. 401. Provides that contracts which provide consulting 
services be a matter of public record and available for public 
review, except where otherwise provided by law.
    Sec. 402. Provides that appropriations available in the 
bill shall not be used to produce literature or otherwise 
promote public support of a legislative proposal on which 
legislative action is not complete. The provision has been 
modified to make clear that it does not restrict authorized 
communications with Congress.
    Sec. 403. Provides that appropriations made available in 
this bill will not remain available beyond the current fiscal 
year unless otherwise provided.
    Sec. 404. Provides that appropriations made available in 
this bill cannot be used to provide a cook, chauffeur, or other 
personal servants.
    Sec. 405. Refines language carried in prior years with 
regard to assessments for government-wide, departmental, 
agency, or bureau functions.
    Sec. 406. Modifies language carried in prior years 
restricting the transfer of funds made available in this Act.
    Sec. 407. Limits the actions of the Forest Service and the 
Bureau of Land Management with regard to the sale of giant 
sequoia trees to a manner consistent with such sales as were 
conducted in fiscal year 2005.
    Sec. 408. Retains mining patent moratorium carried in 
previous years.
    Sec. 409. Allows the National Endowment for the Arts and 
the National Endowment for the Humanities to raise funds and 
receive gifts, to deposit such in an interest-bearing account 
for the appropriate Endowment, and to use such to further the 
functions of the respective Endowments in accordance with the 
specified intent of the donors. The Committee proposes to make 
permanent this authority.
    Sec. 410. Prohibits the use of appropriations to fund any 
activities associated with the issuance of the 5-year program 
under the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning 
Act. Strategic planning activities carried out for that act 
should now be completed as part of the agency's compliance with 
the Government Performance and Results Act, Public Law 103-62.
    Sec. 411. The Committee has provided additional authorities 
for the Forest Service that will allow a broader array of 
activities to be paid for with Knutson-Vandenburg [KV] funds. 
Additional activities that can be funded through KV include 
watershed restoration, wildlife habitat improvement, control of 
insects, disease and noxious weeds, community protection 
activities such as fuels reduction, and the maintenance of 
forest roads. The Committee believes that the critical forest 
health problems facing the Nation's forests warrant providing 
these new authorities so that additional funds may be used to 
address this critical issue.
    Sec. 412. Provides additional authority to use the roads 
and trails funds for priority forest health related management. 
The Committee recognizes that there is a serious backlog in 
important road, trail and bridge work throughout the national 
forest system just as there is a serious backlog in needed 
management related to forest health.
    Sec. 413. Restricts the use of answering machines during 
business hours.
    Sec. 414. Addresses timber sales involving Alaska western 
red cedar. Mills which process western red cedar in the Pacific 
Northwest have an insufficient supply of western red cedar, and 
the national forest in southeast Alaska sometimes has a 
surplus. This provision continues a program by which Alaska's 
surplus western red cedar is made available preferentially to 
U.S. domestic mills outside Alaska, prior to export abroad.
    Sec. 415. Continues a provision providing that the 
Secretary of Agriculture shall not be considered in violation 
of certain provisions of the Forest and Rangeland Renewable 
Resources Planning Act solely because more than 15 years have 
passed without revision of a forest plan, provided that the 
Secretary is working in good faith to complete the plan 
revision within available funds.
    Sec. 416. Prohibits oil, natural gas and mining related 
activities within current national monument boundaries, except 
where such activities are allowed under the presidential 
proclamation establishing the monument.
    Sec. 417. Provides the Secretary of Agriculture and the 
Secretary of the Interior the authority to enter into 
reciprocal agreements with foreign nations concerning the 
personal liability of firefighters. The May 19 Statement of 
Administration Policy on the House bill objected to this 
provision ``to the extent that it would infringe on the 
President's constitutional authority over negotiations with 
foreign states.'' The Committee has no desire to infringe on 
the President's authority in this arena, but is simply 
including the exact language contained in the budget request 
that enables agencies involved in wildland firefighting to 
engage in valuable firefighter exchange programs. The Committee 
would welcome the opportunity to review alternate language that 
would both fulfill the objectives of the exchange program and 
address the constitutional concerns raised by the 
Administration.
    Sec. 418. Allows the Eagle Butte Service Unit of the Indian 
Health Service to utilize health care funding in a more 
efficient manner.
    Sec. 419. Allows the Secretary of Agriculture and the 
Secretary of the Interior to consider local contractors when 
awarding contracts for certain activities on public lands.
    Sec. 420. Restricts funding appropriated for acquisition of 
land or interests in land from being used for declarations of 
taking or complaints in condemnation.
    Sec. 421. Continues, with certain modifications, language 
included in the fiscal year 2005 Act which controls the amount 
of funds available for the conduct of competitive sourcing 
studies.
    Sec. 422. Restricts the use of funds for SAFECOM and 
Disaster Management.
    Sec. 423. Requires that contact centers associated with the 
national recreation reservation service be located within the 
United States.
    Sec. 424. Extends for 1 year a pilot program to enhance 
Forest Service administration of rights-of-way.
    Sec. 425. Extends by 1 year the Forest Service's ability to 
enter into certain cooperative agreements with third parties 
that are of mutually significant benefit.
    Sec. 426. Amends section 5 of the Arts and Artifacts

    TITLE V--FOREST SERVICE FACILITY REALIGNMENT AND ENHANCEMENT ACT

    The Committee has included legislation that will provide 
for the reduction of the Forest Service administrative site 
maintenance backlog and improve the Service's ability to 
realign facilities to meet the needs of its workforce and 
program management. The legislation authorizes the Secretary of 
Agriculture to sell, lease, exchange or combine a sale and 
exchange of any administrative site the Secretary determines is 
no longer needed for National Forest System purposes. The 
legislation incorporates new authorities for streamlining 
regulations to facilitate the timely disposal of administrative 
sites and to improve the marketability of the sites.
    Receipts derived from the conveyance of administrative 
sites and facilities would be deposited in the Sisk Act fund 
and remain available to the Secretary until expended, without 
further appropriations. These funds will be used for the 
administrative costs incurred in conveying sites; the 
acquisition of land for administrative sites; and for the 
decommissioning, construction, maintenance, rehabilitation, and 
improvement of administrative sites.
    The legislation also amends the existing Working Capital 
Fund [WCF] to allow the fund to be used for the purchase, 
construction, capital repair, renovation, rehabilitation, 
disposal, or replacement of buildings and improvements for 
programs of the Forest Service.
