                    OVERVIEW AND SUMMARY OF THE BILL

    The Committee recommends total appropriations of 
$31,860,080,000 for the Department of Homeland Security for 
fiscal year 2006, $1,291,332,000 more than the budget request. 
Of this amount, $30,846,000,000 is for discretionary programs.
    The horrific attacks on our Nation on September 11, 2001, 
are evidence of our failed intelligence efforts and our 
vulnerability to those who would do us harm. The Department of 
Homeland Security was created, in part, to better organize the 
Executive Branch's ability to protect the Nation. No one 
expected that this reorganization would take hold overnight. 
The merger of separate agencies with different cultures into a 
new department is a complex and daunting task. Two years have 
passed since the Department began operations. It is now 
reasonable to expect the Department to be functioning 
cohesively, effectively managing tasks, and successfully 
carrying out the primary mission assigned to it by the Homeland 
Security Act of 2002 (Public Law 107-296). That is, to:

          (A) prevent terrorist attacks within the United 
        States;
          (B) reduce the vulnerability of the United States to 
        terrorism;
          (C) minimize the damage, and assist in the recovery 
        from terrorist attacks that do occur within the United 
        States;
          (D) carry out all functions of entities transferred 
        to the Department, including by acting as a focal point 
        regarding natural and manmade crises and emergency 
        planning;
          (E) ensure that the functions of the agencies and 
        subdivisions within the Department that are not related 
        directly to securing the homeland are not diminished or 
        neglected except by explicit specific Act of Congress;
          (F) ensure that the overall economic security of the 
        United States is not diminished by efforts, activities, 
        and programs aimed at securing the homeland; and
          (G) monitor connections between illegal drug 
        trafficking and terrorism, coordinate efforts to sever 
        such connections, and otherwise contribute to efforts 
        to interdict illegal drug trafficking.

    This said, Federal resources are limited. The ability to 
foresee, guard, and protect against all possible acts of 
terrorism is challenging for our Nation. It is important to 
address tomorrow's, not yesterday's, problems and be focused in 
our efforts. There is a driving need to minimize risks, close 
gaps, and address vulnerabilities. This bill, through the 
allocation of resources, begins to move the Department of 
Homeland Security in that direction.
    Combatting Weapons of Mass Destruction.--The risk that 
terrorists will acquire a weapon of mass destruction--chemical, 
biological, radiological, or nuclear--is a serious threat to 
our Nation. The 9/11 Commission recognized this risk, stating 
in the ``Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist 
Attacks Upon the United States'', known as the 9/11 Commission 
Report, that, ``The greatest danger of another catastrophic 
attack in the United States will materialize if the world's 
most dangerous terrorists acquire the world's most dangerous 
weapons''.
    Congress has already taken initial action to prepare the 
country for a biological attack, with the passage of the 
Project BioShield Act and funding of $5,566,749,000 through 
September 30, 2013, to provide resources to incentivize private 
industry to develop medical countermeasures against known and 
perceived threats. Including the resources in this bill, since 
fiscal year 2004 the Committee also has provided the Department 
with: nearly $700,000,000 for radiological/nuclear 
countermeasures; nearly $1,000,000,000 for biological 
countermeasures; over $200,000,000 for chemical 
countermeasures, with $100,000,000 for fiscal year 2006 alone; 
and nearly $270,000,000 for threat and vulnerability 
assessments. In an effort to close the gap in cargo security, 
the Committee has supported the expansion of the Container 
Security Initiative from 19 ports in fiscal year 2003 to 41 
ports in fiscal year 2006, and has strengthened the ability of 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection to conduct verification 
audits of the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism.
    It is expected that, once the Intelligence Reform and 
Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (Public Law 108-458) is fully 
implemented, information and intelligence will be improved to 
allow more informed decision making on resource allocations by 
the Department of Homeland Security, the administration, and 
Congress.
    Addressing Threats.--Since fiscal year 2002, over 
$14,000,000,000 has been appropriated to the Department and its 
precursor agencies for first responder grants. Further, 
$3,000,000,000 additional dollars are provided by this bill. It 
is time that this Nation seriously assesses the perceived 
versus actual results of expenditure of these tax dollars. On 
what basis has the distribution of grant dollars been made? Can 
we do better to achieve a balance between the sustainment needs 
of the entire country and the critical needs of those areas 
facing the greatest risk and the highest vulnerability? The 9/
11 Commission Report recommendation on domestic preparedness 
dollars could not have been more explicit:

        Homeland security assistance should be based strictly 
        on an assessment of risks and vulnerabilities. . . . We 
        understand the contention that every State and city 
        needs to have some minimum infrastructure for emergency 
        response. But Federal homeland security assistance 
        should not remain a program for general revenue 
        sharing. It should supplement State and local resources 
        based on the risks or vulnerabilities that merit 
        additional support.

    The Committee strongly agrees that the bulk of funding 
should be based on risk and tied to the assessments now being 
conducted by the States in fulfillment of Homeland Security 
Presidential Directive 8. These assessments, when combined with 
the best information available to the Department on current 
threats and risks, should be the basis for determining the 
optimal allocation of funding. Including fiscal year 2005 
appropriated dollars, nearly $7,000,000,000 remains unspent by 
grant recipients as of May 2005. This is half of what has been 
appropriated to date, not including funds provided by this 
bill. This apparent lack of action is not a criticism of the 
States or local jurisdictions charged with the responsibility 
for making the spending decisions for these dollars. Rather, it 
is an acknowledgement that good spending decisions often 
require good planning, and good planning requires time. The 
funding levels recommended and the decision making behind them 
throughout this bill is an acknowledgement that some level of 
funding is required to sustain the capabilities that have been 
built in every State. Once the capability assessments by the 
States are finalized, the Department will have a new tool at 
its disposal to make informed decisions about how best to close 
remaining gaps.
    Another area of poor risk management and poor threat 
response is transportation security. In response to the 9/11 
tragedy, the Federal Government carried out an extraordinary 
effort by standing up the Transportation Security 
Administration [TSA] in a short period of time. However, since 
the accomplishment of TSA's initial mission, the Department has 
been unable to quickly respond to emerging threats.
    While TSA has hardened cockpit doors and instituted 
passenger and baggage screening measures, most recently the 
Inspector General has discovered serious lapses in TSA's 
response to the use of an aircraft as a delivery mechanism for 
a weapon of mass destruction. Also, TSA has failed to 
adequately address the threat of explosives at passenger 
checkpoints. TSA relies too heavily on people, not technology, 
to respond to the threat of an aircraft takeover, but has done 
little to look beyond the horizon at emerging threats. This 
bill shifts resources away from TSA screeners to more pressing 
threats.
    The Committee increases funding for screening and 
checkpoint technologies while reducing the size of the screener 
workforce. Further, increased flexibility is provided for TSA 
to accelerate the shift of resources from the workforce to 
technology. There is no mandate to keep the screener workforce 
at 45,000 strong. TSA must leverage its resources to maximize 
its workforce first rather than fixating on screeners.
    Strengthening the Nation's Borders.--Recently, officials of 
the Department of Homeland Security have conceded the United 
States does not have operational control of its borders. The 
United States shares 5,525 miles of border with Canada and 
1,989 miles with Mexico; the Nation's maritime border 
encompasses 95,000 miles of shoreline. Each year, more than 500 
million people cross these borders into the United States, some 
330 million who are non-citizens. Over 118 million vehicles and 
16 million cargo containers enter the United States annually. 
In addition, there are an estimated 11 million undocumented 
aliens in the United States, including more than 400,000 
individuals who have absconded, walking away with impunity from 
Orders of Deportation and Removal. One of the promises of the 
Department of Homeland Security was the integration of all 
agencies across the Federal Government that touch on border 
management. That promise remains unfulfilled. The National 
Border Patrol Strategy completed in March 2005 is an example of 
the fragmented approach of the Department. While this strategy 
attempts to put into place a plan of action, such a strategy 
cannot on its own gain control of our borders. The Department 
must aggressively move to truly integrate the responses, 
strategies, and technologies of all agencies responsible for 
border security and immigration. The National Border Patrol 
Strategy must be intricately meshed with a national detention 
plan, and both must be tied directly into an investigative plan 
for Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE].
    Absent a clearly articulated, fully integrated national 
border security strategy for personnel and technology, the 
Committee has taken steps in this bill to target resources. The 
Committee expects the administration will follow this lead and 
develop an integrated strategy and incorporate hard estimates 
of the necessary resources to implement it.
    This bill funds a total of 12,449 Border Patrol Agents; 
18,201 Customs and Border Protection [CBP] Officers; 6,128 
Criminal Investigators for customs and immigration work; 1,284 
Deportation Officers; 2,747 Immigration Enforcement Agents/
Detention Officers; and 22,727 detention beds across the 
Nation. It continues to support the development of the US 
Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology [US VISIT]. 
While this effort has just begun, the Committee will continue 
to watch its development closely and will hold the Department 
accountable for good stewardship of the funds.
    These resources are just a first step towards true reform 
of our complete immigration system. However, resources alone 
will not solve the problem of immigration. There are two key 
activities to our immigration system: granting immigration 
benefits to those who wish to come to this country permanently 
or those who wish to reside here temporarily for work or 
school; and seeking to ensure that immigration rules and laws 
are enforced. Without true reform of both, the benefits side of 
the equation and the enforcement side, no meaningful permanent 
change will be effectuated at our borders.
    Improving Management.--The Department of Homeland Security 
has significant management dysfunctions. This Committee has 
repeatedly stepped in to rescue organizations from their own 
inept mismanagement of resources. The prime example of this 
behavior is ICE. Since the creation of ICE, this Committee has 
reallocated, transferred, and provided supplemental funds of 
over $600,000,000 to address base funding shortfalls.
    Financial management throughout the Department has been 
called into question. This Committee holds the Secretary of 
Homeland Security, the Director of the Office of Management and 
Budget, the Under Secretary for Management, the Chief Financial 
Officer, and the head of each individual Department 
organization directly accountable for properly managing the 
resources provided by Congress.
    A 21st century Department should not be operating on 
stovepiped, disconnected, inherited information technology 
systems. The Department requires a 21st century technology base 
to achieve full effectiveness. Without strong management and 
oversight of information technology spending, the Department 
will continue to be hindered in its ability to respond to 
threats. The Department cannot afford missteps in this area. 
This bill now requires the use of independent verification and 
validation [IV&V;] agents for US VISIT, the Automated Commercial 
Environment project, and the Atlas project. The Department 
should utilize IV&V; agents as a good management technique to be 
applied to other systems development, including eMERGE2, Max 
HR, and the Homeland Secure Data Network.
    One glaring example of poor integration of deployed 
technology is the border crossing card readers at the land 
ports-of-entry. After a delay of 2 years, these readers--which 
can verify the card holder's identity through fingerprints--are 
deployed only at pedestrian lanes and are not integrated with 
each other, or with the central database of fingerprints held 
by the Department, or with any other computer system available 
to inspectors. Thus, this program continues with significant 
security gaps.
    Since the creation of the Department, there has been a 
continuous cycle of reorganizations. In fiscal year 2004, the 
Federal Air Marshals service was transferred from TSA to ICE. 
In fiscal year 2005, a new Office of State and Local Government 
Coordination and Preparedness was created as a direct report to 
the Secretary. Consolidated into this office were the Office of 
Domestic Preparedness, Emergency Management Performance Grants 
(overseen by Emergency Preparedness and Response), and 
transportation and port security grants (overseen by TSA). 
Also, in fiscal year 2005, the air and marine operations 
activities were transferred from ICE to U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection [CBP]. As a result of the air and marine operations 
transfer, CBP is evaluating the level of internal 
reorganization required to integrate these responsibilities 
with assets of the Border Patrol. The President's fiscal year 
2006 budget proposes yet another reorganization--creation of 
the Office of Screening Coordination and Operations [SCO]. SCO 
is intended to consolidate all of the Department's 
credentialing activities with US VISIT, a program which is 
still struggling to perform efficiently. Reorganizing seems to 
be a sport within the Department. At what point does continued 
reorganization impede the ability of the Department to get its 
jobs done?
    From organizations repeatedly unable to operate on the 
appropriations received, to organizations unable to execute 
simple operational plans, the Department has myriad management 
incompetencies. Too often the Department proposes solutions 
without first clearly defining the problem, exacerbating it 
further by shifting resources from one crisis to another. This 
immobilizes the Department, hindering its ability to address 
any situation effectively. The Arizona Border Control 
Initiative and the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office are 
examples of action being taken before thoughtful planning 
despite the seriousness of the problems being addressed. Hasty 
solutions are fostering an apparent false sense of security.
    The Committee will work constructively with the Department 
to address these issues.

    Office of Security.--The Committee provides an increase of 
$33,854,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level for the Office of 
Security. The Committee expects this amount to be sufficient to 
support the functions of this office which in fiscal year 2005 
received supplemental funding from Information Analysis and 
Infrastructure Protection.
    Executive Secretary.--The Committee provides an increase of 
$631,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level for pay and 
inflationary adjustments, as requested in the budget.
    Office of Policy, Planning and International Affairs.--The 
Committee supports the Department's efforts to provide 
meaningful policy development and oversight through the Office 
of Policy, Planning and International Affairs. This Office will 
rely on existing policy expertise by consolidating a total of 
21 full-time equivalents [FTEs] from the Office of the Chief of 
Staff, Office of International Affairs, and the Homeland 
Security Advisory Council. An additional 16 FTEs will be 
provided by transfer from the Under Secretary for Border and 
Transportation Security, and 1 FTE from the Office of the Chief 
Financial Officer. The Committee's recommendation provides 
$7,258,000 for the operations of this Office in fiscal year 
2006. The Committee's recommendation does not include 
$1,512,000 and 3 FTEs for the Baghdad Initiative proposed in 
the budget.
    Office of the National Capital Region Coordination.--The 
Committee provides an increase of $24,000 from the fiscal year 
2005 level for pay and inflationary adjustments for the Office 
of the National Capital Region Coordination. The Committee 
encourages the Coordinator to consider detailing personnel to 
the Homeland Security Operations Center if deemed appropriate 
and necessary.
    Office of Public Affairs.--The Committee provides an 
increase of $192,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level for pay 
and inflationary adjustments for the Office of Public Affairs, 
as requested in the budget.
    Office of Legislative Affairs.--The Committee provides an 
increase of $500,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level for pay 
and inflationary adjustments for the Office of Legislative 
Affairs.
    Office of General Counsel.--The Committee provides an 
increase of $266,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level, as 
requested in the budget, for pay and inflationary adjustments 
for the Office of General Counsel.
    Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.--The Committee 
provides $13,000,000, as requested in the budget, for the 
Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. The Intelligence 
Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (Public Law 108-
458) expands the responsibilities of this Office. The Committee 
notes that within the amount provided, the Office is to devote 
sufficient resources to fulfill these responsibilities and 
directs the Office to hire 10 additional staff for this 
purpose.
    Regions Initiative.--The Committee does not provide 
funding, as requested in the budget, for the regions 
initiative. Section 706 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 
(Public Law 107-296) requires the Department to submit a 
consolidation and collocation plan to Congress. A plan has yet 
to be submitted for review. The Committee expects to receive 
regular updates from the Department on the status of any such 
plan and expects to be notified at least 10 days prior to any 
change in location of offices.
    Operational Integration Staff.--The Committee does not 
recommend direct funding for the Operational Integration staff, 
as proposed in the budget. The Committee expects the new Office 
of Policy, Planning and International Affairs to perform 
integration and coordination functions. Further, the Committee 
provides increased funding and 3 FTEs to the Homeland Security 
Operations Center to coordinate its activities throughout the 
Department.
    Expediting Grant Awards.--The Committee continues to 
believe that the Department can expedite awards of homeland 
security grants, including grants for port security, intercity 
bus security, buffer zone protection, firefighter (SAFER Act) 
hiring, and transit security grants. The Committee notes that 
as of May 16, 2005, although application kits were released, 
none of the fiscal year 2005 funds made available for these 
programs have been awarded. The Committee directs the 
Department to submit a report to the Committee by February 18, 
2006, that lays out a schedule for the award of grant funds 
made available by this Act, as well as for any prior year funds 
that remain unobligated. If any grant funds are to be awarded 
after March 30, 2006, the Department should provide a detailed 
explanation for the delay.
    Contract Staffing Report.--The Committee notes that the 
Department has not yet submitted its report on contract 
staffing, as required by the statement of managers accompanying 
the conference report on the Department of Homeland Security 
Appropriations Act, 2005 (Public Law 108-334). The Committee 
still expects to receive this report. In addition, no later 
than February 18, 2006, the Department is directed to submit an 
updated report containing the number of contract staff 
occupying positions budgeted to be filled by Federal employees 
during fiscal year 2005 and projected for fiscal year 2006. The 
Committee expects the Department to make progress in replacing 
contract staff personnel with Federal employees. Accordingly, 
the Department is to include in its report a plan for 
accomplishing this objective.
    Base Realignment and Closure.--The Committee directs the 
Department to submit a report to the Committee on 
Appropriations describing the impact of the closure or 
realignment of any Department of Defense base resulting from 
the Base Realignment and Closure law on Department of Homeland 
Security facilities and activities. This report should be 
submitted by February 18, 2006, and should include cost 
estimates from fiscal year 2006 to fiscal year 2010 for any 
construction, consolidation, relocation, or other expenses to 
affected Department of Homeland Security facilities, assets or 
activities.
    Chemical Facilities.--The Committee is pleased by the 
administration's recent endorsement of mandatory security 
requirements for the chemical sector. In recent congressional 
testimony, the Department described, in general terms, its 
support of a regulatory system that would assess the risk of 
chemical facilities, establish security standards, and create a 
system for auditing and ensuring compliance with the security 
standards. The Department is directed to report to the 
Committee by February 18, 2006, on the resources needed to 
implement mandatory security requirements for the Nation's 
chemical sector.

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

    Office of the Under Secretary for Management.--The 
Committee's recommendation includes an increase of $253,000 
from fiscal year 2005 level, as requested in the budget, for 
pay and inflationary adjustments for the Office of the Under 
Secretary for Management.
    DHS Consolidated Headquarters.--The Committee provides 
$26,070,000, as requested, to enable the Department to continue 
to consolidate and integrate its headquarters operations and 
specific program components at the Nebraska Avenue Complex 
[NAC] in Washington, DC. This amount includes $8,300,000 for 
security enhancements; $10,257,000 for tenant improvements; 
$3,400,000 for capital improvements; and $4,113,000 for campus-
wide design and construction costs.
    The Committee expects to be updated on a regular basis on 
the Department's physical consolidation and on the planned 
expenditure of the funds made available for the NAC, as well as 
its plans for a permanent headquarters.
    Business Transformation Office.--The Committee continues 
the fiscal year 2005 funding level for the Business 
Transformation Office.
    Office of the Chief Procurement Officer.--The Committee 
fully funds the budget request for the Office of the Chief 
Procurement Officer. The Committee directs the Chief 
Procurement Officer to use the increase for hiring and training 
of qualified procurement officers. In addition, the Committee 
directs the Under Secretary for Management to submit a report 
to the Committees on Appropriations by February 18, 2006, that 
provides the number of procurement officers in the Department, 
including the number for each organization, for fiscal years 
2004 and 2005 and proposed for fiscal year 2006, and provide an 
assessment of the adequacy of the number and training of those 
personnel.
    Human Resources System.--The Committee provides the budget 
request level of $53,000,000 to support the design, detailed 
program development, and deployment of the new DHS human 
resources management system. Included in this amount is: (1) 
$18,000,000 for detailed systems design and implementation 
support to ensure that DHS designs a program that appropriately 
links pay, competencies, and performance; (2) $10,000,000 for 
training and communication to ensure that all DHS executives, 
managers, and supervisors are adequately trained on aspects of 
the new system and their responsibilities, along with awareness 
and change management activities to ensure all DHS employees 
understand system changes; (3) $9,000,000 for program 
management, oversight, and evaluation; (4) $10,000,000 for 
initial personnel conversion from the General Schedule scale; 
and (5) $6,000,000 for the Homeland Security Labor Relations 
Board.
    The Committee expects to be kept up to date on the status 
of the Department's new human resources system, known as Max 
HR. Accordingly, the Department is directed to report to the 
Committee no later than February 18, 2006, on the progress made 
to implement this system. Included in this report should be an 
assessment of the success of this program in improving mission 
effectiveness. This report should also include a spending plan 
which details the total life-cycle cost of the Max HR system, 
indicating the projected costs for each fiscal year over the 
life of the project.
    Office of Immigration Statistics.--The Committee recommends 
continued funding at the fiscal year 2005 level for the Office 
of Immigration Statistics.
    Unobligated Balances.--When the Department of Homeland 
Security was created pursuant to the Homeland Security Act of 
2002 (Public Law 107-296), funds were transferred from multiple 
Federal agencies to support its missions. Over 2 years later, 
some of these funds remain unobligated. The Committee directs 
the Under Secretary for Management to submit a report to the 
Committee no later than February 18, 2006, that lists all funds 
transferred to the Department remaining unobligated as of 
September 30, 2005; the source of those funds; the purpose for 
which the funds were appropriated; the reason the funds remain 
unobligated; and the Department's plans for the use of the 
funds.

          Department of Homeland Security Working Capital Fund

    The Committee includes a rescission of $12,000,000 of 
unobligated balances from the Department of Homeland Security 
Working Capital Fund.

                 Office of the Chief Financial Officer

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $13,000,000

House allowance.........................................      18,505,000
Committee recommendation................................      18,325,000

    The Office of the Chief Financial Officer is responsible 
for the fiscal management and financial accountability of the 
Department of Homeland Security. The Office of the Chief 
Financial Officer provides guidance and oversight of the 
Department's budget execution, while ensuring that funds are 
allocated and expended in accordance with relevant laws and 
policies. The specific activities funded by this account 
include: the Budget Division, Office of Performance Analysis 
and Evaluation, Office of Financial Management, Resource 
Management Transition Office, and the Office of the Government 
Accountability Office/Office of Inspector General Liaison.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $18,325,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the Office of the Chief Financial Officer [CFO] for 
fiscal year 2006. This includes an increase of $285,000 from 
the fiscal year 2005 level, as requested in the budget, for pay 
and inflationary adjustments; a decrease of $180,000 for the 
transfer of 1 full-time equivalent position to the Office of 
the Secretary and Executive Management, Office of Policy, 
Planning and International Affairs; and the $5,220,000 program 
increase requested in the budget for financial audit 
requirements.
    Annual Appropriations Justifications.--The Committee 
directs the CFO to ensure the annual appropriations 
justifications for the Committees on Appropriations prepared 
for each agency within the Department in support of the 
President's budget as submitted under section 1105(a) of title 
31, United States Code, include explicit information by 
appropriations account, program, project, and activity, on all 
reimbursable agreements and all uses of the Economy Act for 
each fiscal year.
    Budget Execution Report.--The Department is directed to 
continue submitting to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations a monthly budget execution report showing the 
status of obligations and costs for all components of the 
Department. The report should include the total obligational 
authority appropriated (new budget authority plus unobligated 
carryover), undistributed obligational authority, amount 
allotted, current year obligations, unobligated authority (the 
difference between total obligational authority and current 
year obligations), beginning unexpended obligations, year-to-
date costs, and ending unexpended obligations. This budget 
execution information is to be provided at the level of detail 
shown in the tables displayed at the end of this report for 
each departmental component and the Working Capital Fund. This 
report shall be submitted no later than 45 days after the close 
of each month.
    Homeland Security Financial Accountability Act.--The 
Committee does not include a general provision requested in the 
budget to extend the Department's deadline for complying with 
internal control audits pursuant to the Homeland Security 
Financial Accountability Act (Public Law 108-330). This action 
does not reflect the Committee's position on the merits of this 
request but simply a recognition that a proposed change in this 
recently-enacted law should properly be submitted to, 
considered by, and acted on by the appropriate legislative 
committees of the Congress.

                Office of the Chief Information Officer

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $275,270,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     303,700,000
House allowance.........................................     303,700,000
Committee recommendation................................     286,540,000

    The Office of the Chief Information Officer is responsible 
for the development and acquisition of information technology 
equipment, software, services, and the costs of conversion to 
narrowband communications.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $286,540,000, of which $75,756,000 
is for salaries and expenses, and $210,784,000 is to be 
available until expended for Department-wide technology 
investments overseen by the Office of the Chief Information 
Officer [CIO]. This includes an increase of $5,000,000 for pay 
and other inflationary adjustments.
    The Committee includes language in the bill directing the 
CIO to submit to the Committee within 60 days of enactment of 
this Act, a detailed program plan describing the scope; total 
estimated cost; cost by year; and the schedule for completion, 
including significant milestones, for each individual project 
funded for fiscal year 2006 for information technology 
services, security activities, and wireless programs.
    Salaries and Expenses.--Included in the amount recommended 
by the Committee is $75,756,000, an increase of $8,486,000 from 
the fiscal year 2005 level, as requested in the budget, to 
support the ongoing maintenance and operations of 
infrastructure capabilities to ensure continuous communication 
and continuity of operations.
    Information Technology Services.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $13,255,000, as requested, for 
an expansion of geospatial activities. The Committee does not 
recommend the requested increases for the creation of a 
metadata solutions center, the creation of a solutions 
engineering center, or the continued development and 
implementation of smartcard technology. The Committee believes 
the CIO should do more to leverage the expertise and resources 
of the information technology projects and offices across the 
Department, as opposed to creating new centers in headquarters.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the budget request levels:

    Security Activities.--Included in the amount recommended by 
the Committee is $19,000,000 for continued security activities 
and a reduction of $12,000,000 to discontinue funding for the 
homeland security information technology evaluation program.
    Wireless Activities.--Included in the amount recommended by 
the Committee is $119,029,000 for wireless activities. This is 
an increase of $33,029,000 from the budget request and fiscal 
year 2005 level to support the ongoing maintenance and 
operations of the Homeland Secure Data Network [HSDN]. The 
Committee denies the increases requested for the HSDN in seven 
separate accounts across the Department, and believes that a 
consolidated, identifiable and visible source of funding for 
the on-going operations of this system is more appropriate.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the budget request levels:

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $9,617,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      10,617,000
House allowance.........................................       8,617,000
Committee recommendation................................       9,617,000

    This account provides the funds for the salaries and 
expenses of the Office of the Under Secretary for Border and 
Transportation Security which oversees the activities of and 
coordination of Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and 
Customs Enforcement, the Transportation Security 
Administration, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, 
and the United States Visitor and Immigration Status Indicator 
Technology Program.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $9,617,000 for the activities of 
the Office of the Under Secretary of Border and Transportation 
Security [BTS] salaries and expenses account. This includes a 
transfer of $2,400,000 and 15 full-time equivalents to the 
Office of the Secretary and Executive Management, Office of 
Policy, Planning and International Affairs, and an increase of 
$2,400,000 in pay and inflationary adjustments. This is the 
same as the fiscal year 2005 level.
    Cargo Container Security.--On June 9, 2005, the Department 
submitted a report on cargo container security which was 4 
months overdue. This report did not meet the needs outlined in 
the statement of mangers accompanying the conference report on 
the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2005 
(Public Law 108-334). The Department is directed to conduct the 
review again and submit a new report in full compliance with 
the stated requirements of the Committee. The revised report 
should be submitted as soon as possible.

    UNITED STATES VISITOR AND IMMIGRANT STATUS INDICATOR TECHNOLOGY

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $340,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................         ( \1\ )
House allowance.........................................         ( \2\ )
Committee recommendation................................     340,000,000

\1\ Funding of $390,232,000 is proposed under ``Office of Screening 
Coordination and Operations''.
\2\ Funding of $390,232,000 included within ``Automation 
Modernization''.

    The United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator 
Technology account funds the development of a system to 
collect, maintain, and share appropriate information through an 
integrated information technology system which determines the 
eligibility of aliens for admissions and benefits.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $340,000,000, to be available 
until expended, for the United States Visitor and Immigrant 
Status Indicator Technology [US VISIT]. This is the same as the 
fiscal year 2005 funding level. The Committee retains US VISIT 
as a standalone account.
    The US VISIT program office has been given lead 
responsibility within the Department of Homeland Security to 
work with the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI] on the 
further integration of the Automated Biometric Identification 
System [IDENT] and the FBI's Integrated Automated Fingerprint 
Identification System [IAFIS]. The Committee expects the 
resources for the IDENT/IAFIS integration project to be funded 
from this account.
    Accelerated Deployment.--The Committee does not include the 
increase of $50,232,000 requested in the budget.
    Biometric Integration.--In the statement of managers 
accompanying the conference report on the Department of 
Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2005 (Public Law 108-
334), the Department was directed to submit a report by January 
14, 2005, on the status of efforts between the Departments of 
Homeland Security and Justice [DOJ] to achieve real-time 
interoperability between IDENT and IAFIS, which the Committee 
has not received. In December 2004, the DOJ Inspector General 
released a report (I-2005-001) which notes that efforts to 
achieve interoperability between IDENT and IAFIS have stalled 
in part because of continued disagreements between the two 
Departments about the appropriate fingerprint methodology. The 
Committee directs the Department to submit the required report 
as soon as possible, and further directs that this report 
address the issues raised by the DOJ Inspector General's 
report.
    Expenditure Plan.--Of the funds recommended, $159,658,000 
is available for obligation only upon the submission of a 
comprehensive plan from the Secretary of Homeland Security for 
the US VISIT program that: (1) meets the capital planning and 
investment control review requirements established by the 
Office of Management and Budget [OMB], including OMB Circular 
A-11, part 7; (2) complies with the Department's enterprise 
information systems architecture; (3) complies with Federal 
Government acquisition rules, requirements, guidelines, and 
systems acquisition management practices; (4) includes a 
certification that an independent verification and validation 
agent is under contract; (5) is reviewed by the Department's 
Investment Review Board, the Secretary and OMB; (6) is reviewed 
by the Government Accountability Office; and (7) has been 
approved by the Committees on Appropriations.

            Office of Screening Coordination and Operations

Appropriations, 2005....................................................
Budget estimate, 2006 \1\...............................    $525,526,000
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................................

\1\ Includes funding for the following activities: $390,232,000 for US 
VISIT; $7,000,000 for the Free and Secure Trade program; $14,000,000 for 
the Nexus/Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection 
program; $94,294,000 for the Secure Flight and Crew Vetting activities; 
and $20,000,000 for the start-up costs of Credentialing Activities.

    The Office of Screening Coordination and Operations is 
proposed as the office with responsibility for the 
comprehensive coordination of procedures that detect, identify, 
track, and interdict people, cargo and conveyances, and other 
entities and objects that pose a threat to homeland security.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee does not recommend the transfer of funding 
from US VISIT, Customs and Border Protection, and the 
Transportation Security Administration to create a new Office 
of Screening Coordination and Operations as proposed in the 
President's budget request.

                     Customs and Border Protection


                                SUMMARY

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection is responsible for the 
enforcing of the laws regarding admission of foreign-born 
persons into the United States and ensuring that all goods and 
persons entering and exiting the United States do so legally.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends total resources of $7,140,316,000, 
including direct appropriations of $5,998,170,000, and

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $4,908,200,000 for salaries and 
expenses of Customs and Border Protection [CBP] for fiscal year 
2006, including $3,000,000 from the Harbor Maintenance Trust 
Fund. Included in this amount is a transfer of $1,456,000, and 
7 full-time equivalents [FTEs] to Science and Technology [S&T;] 
``Research, Development, Acquisition, and Operations'' account 
for the consolidation of research and development, a decrease 
of $11,019,000 in termination of one-time costs, and 
$82,446,000 in annualizations for 500 Border Patrol Agents 
included in the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for 
Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief Act, 2005 
(Public Law 109-13). The Committee includes language in the 
bill making available up to $150,000 for space for preclearance 
operations; up to $5,000,000 available for cooperative 
agreements with States and local governments; and $1,000,000 
for payments to informants. The Committee includes language in 
the bill placing a $35,000 annual limit on overtime paid to any 
employee. The Committee has not included the transfer requested 
in the budget of $21,000,000 to the Office of Screening 
Coordination and Operations, but retains the $7,000,000 for the 
Free and Secure Trade program and the $14,000,000 for the 
Nexus/Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection 
program within CBP. The Committee also includes a $14,400,000 
rescission of unobligated funds appropriated in prior years.
    Targeting Systems.--Included in the amount recommended by 
the Committee is $28,253,000, an increase of $5,400,000, as 
requested in the budget, for systems technology acquisitions, 
to be distributed as follows: automated targeting system/land, 
$1,500,000; automated targeting system/passenger, $1,500,000; 
and automated targeting system/inbound, $2,400,000.
    Immigration Advisory Program.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $4,000,000, an increase of 
$2,000,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level, as requested in the 
budget, for expansion of the Immigration Advisory Program.
    Radiation Portal Monitors.--The Committee does not provide 
the $125,000,000 requested in the budget for radiation portal 
monitors. The Committee instead provides $125,000,000 for the 
procurement and deployment of radiation portal monitors within 
the S&T;, ``Research, Development, Acquisition, and Operations'' 
account. The Committee believes S&T; is the proper organization 
to test, pilot, and direct the procurement of radiation portal 
monitors.
    America's Shield Initiative.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $51,084,000, as requested in 
the budget, to continue development of the America's Shield 
Initiative for the deployment of enhanced electronic 
surveillance capabilities along the southern and northern land 
borders.
    The Committee encourages the program managers to explore 
the use of commerical, airborne, off-the-shelf wireless 
technology as it develops this program.
    Container Security Initiative.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $138,790,000, 341 positions, 
and 335 FTEs, an increase of $12,694,000, 12 positions, and 6 
FTEs, from the fiscal year 2005 level, as requested in the 
budget, for expansion of the Container Security Initiative 
[CSI].
    The Committee supports the program's expansion to more than 
41 overseas ports, as well as the growing permanent placement 
of U.S. inspection personnel at overseas ports to work jointly 
with host country counterparts in targeting and inspecting 
potentially threatening shipping containers prior to their 
arrival at ports in the United States. However, the Committee 
is concerned some host governments are reluctant to conduct 
inspections of a significant number of the containers CSI 
officials request and refer for additional inspection. If a 
host country is reluctant to work with United States CSI teams, 
its further participation in the CSI program should be 
reevaluated and possibly terminated. The Committee directs the 
Department to provide a report to the Committee, no later than 
February 18, 2006, on the specific steps the Department has 
taken to work with host governments to explain the CSI 
targeting methods so as to overcome any reluctance to inspect 
potentially suspect containers, how CSI teams coordinate their 
efforts with Department of State personnel, what actions have 
been taken or consideration has been given to withdrawing CSI 
personnel from a CSI port if cooperation with CSI teams has not 
improved and the specific actions taken and planned to 
implement the recommendations made by the Government 
Accountability Office [GAO] in its April 2005 report (GAO-05-
557), ``A Flexible Staffing Model and Minimum Equipment 
Requirements Would Improve Overseas Targeting and Inspection 
Efforts''.
    Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism.--Included in 
the amount recommended by the Committee is $54,268,000, 277 
positions, and 277 FTEs, an increase of $8,200,000 from the 
fiscal year 2005 level, as requested in the budget, for 
expansion of Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism [C-
TPAT].
    Standards for CSI and C-TPAT.--GAO has determinated CSI and 
C-TPAT need to develop more detailed standards for verifying 
the security of, and provide more rigor in, the known shipper 
process used by these programs (GAO Report 05-33, ``National 
Plan for Homeland Security''). The Committee directs the 
Department to submit a report to the Committee, by February 18, 
2006, on the CSI and C-TPAT programs, to include the following: 
(1) the most rigorous performance measures, including outcome-
oriented indicators, which have been developed and implemented 
for CSI and C-TPAT; (2) a human capital plan that clearly 
describes how the programs will recruit, train, and retain 
staff overseas as the programs expand; and (3) the plans 
currently in place that lay out the goals, objectives, and 
detailed implementation strategies of the programs. Further, 
the report should include the results of the CSI and C-TPAT 
programs for each of fiscal years 2004 and 2005 and the 
specific actions taken and planned to implement the 
recommendations made by the GAO in its March 2005 report (GAO-
05-128SU), ``Partnership Program Grants Importers Reduced 
Scrutiny with Limited Assurance of Improved Security''.
    Border Patrol Aircraft Replacements.--Included in the 
amount recommended is $20,000,000, as requested in the budget, 
for 12 single-engine helicopters to begin the upgrading and 
modernizing of the Border Patrol air fleet. The Committee 
expects CBP to continue to comply with all Federal contracting 
requirements.
    Automated Biometric Identification System [IDENT]/
Integrated Automated Fingerprint System [IAFIS].--Included in 
the amount recommended by the Committee is $3,000,000, as 
requested in the budget, to allow CBP to begin reimbursing the 
US VISIT program for its use of the IDENT and IAFIS systems.
    Border Patrol Staffing.--Included in the amount recommended 
by the Committee is $1,750,545,000, 13,482 positions, 12,704 
FTEs, an increase of $241,010,000 for 1,000 additional Border 
Patrol Agents, 250 full-time equivalents, and funding for 220 
mission support positions, 110 FTEs, relocation costs, and 
information technology costs. This includes the 210 additional 
agent positions requested in the budget and 790 additional 
agents funded by the Committee, including 500 Border Patrol 
Agents, in the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for 
Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief Act, 2005 
(Public Law 109-13). This will bring the total strength of the 
Border Patrol to 12,449 in fiscal year 2006, as compared to 
10,949 in fiscal year 2005.
    Threat Assessment for Ramey Sector, U.S. Virgin Islands.--
The Committee is extremely disappointed that months after 
requesting a formal assessment regarding the threat posed by 
illegal immigration to the U.S. Virgin Islands in the Border 
Patrol Ramey Sector, nothing has been forthcoming from CBP or 
the Department. With the departure of the U.S. Navy from the 
island of Vieques, there is a U.S. presence vacuum in the 
eastern Caribbean. Therefore, the Committee directs CBP to 
establish a permanent Border Patrol facility in the U.S. Virgin 
Islands no later than March 1, 2006. If intelligence is 
available indicating this action is unnecessary, CBP should 
provide a report to the Committee, in classified and 
unclassified form, stating the specific reasons why such a 
facility is not required.
    Arizona Border Control Initiative.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is total funding of $1,000,000, as 
requested in the budget, for support of the Arizona Border 
Control Initiative.
    Homeland Secure Data Network.--The Committee's 
recommendation does not include $3,200,000, as proposed in the 
budget, for the Homeland Secure Data Network. Funding for this 
system is consolidated and included in the Committee's 
recommended appropriations level for the Office of the Chief 
Information Officer.
    Air and Marine Staffing.--The Committee includes 
$146,560,000, 1,134 positions, and 1,134 FTEs, an increase of 
$15,124,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level, for increased 
staffing of air and marine operations, of which $5,500,000 is 
for staffing for the fourth Northern border airwing in Great 
Falls, Montana. The Committee recognizes the critical role 
played by the Air and Marine Operations Center [AMOC]. The 
Committee understands the Commissioner of Customs and Border 
Protection is in the process of finalizing a Transition 
Management Office plan for AMOC and encourages priority be 
given to hiring additional detection support specialists, 
systems technology staff, and communication technicians. 
Further, the Committee believes priority should also be given 
to hiring additional marine enforcement officers.
    Textile Transshipment Enforcement.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $4,750,000 for textile 
transshipment enforcement, as authorized by Section 352 of the 
Trade Act of 2002. The Trade Act of 2002 authorized 
appropriations for the hiring of 72 positions between CBP and 
Immigration and Customs Enforcement, including import 
specialists, auditors, and analytic staff, and funding has been 
provided for these positons. The Committee is aware CBP did not 
fill positions in fiscal year 2004 and directs all its 
positions be filled. Further, the Department is directed to 
report to the Committee by February 18, 2006, on how the funds 
for textile transshipment enforcement were used in fiscal years 
2004 and 2005, and include in that report a 5-year enforcement 
strategy to reduce textile transshipment.
    Advanced Training Center.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $9,134,000, as requested in the 
budget, to operate and equip the Advanced Training Center.
    Pursuant to Public Law 106-246, the training to be 
conducted at the Advanced Training Center shall be configured 
in a manner so as to not duplicate or displace any Federal law 
enforcement program of the Federal Law Enforcement Training 
Center [FLETC]. Training currently being conducted at a FLETC 
facility shall not be moved to the Advanced Training Center.
    Non-intrusive Inspection Technology.--The Committee 
supports the acquisition and utilization of advanced mobile 
inspection systems for screening trucks, cargo containers, and 
passenger vehicles. The Committee is supportive of multiple 
technologies to provide this critical service.
    Anti-dumping Enforcement.--The Committee has ensured, 
within the amounts provided for this account, the availability 
of sufficient funds to enforce the anti-dumping authority 
contained in section 754 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 
1675c).
    In response to a Committee directive, CBP submitted a 
report on February 3, 2005, regarding the status of its 
implementation of recommendations by the U.S. Treasury 
Department's Office of the Inspector General report on 
implementation of the Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act 
of 2000 [CDSOA]. The Committee directs CBP to report on whether 
it has completed all of the initiatives, processes, and 
procedures which it identified in its February 3, 2005, report 
to the Committee. In particular, CBP is directed to confirm 
whether the individual processes listed in Attachment 1 to the 
``Statement of Work'' have been completed. If those processes 
and procedures have not been completed, CBP is directed to 
provide an explanation as to why and to provide a deadline as 
to when they will be completed. The report is due to the 
Committee by February 18, 2006.
    Further, the Committee is concerned CBP had failed to 
submit the report concerning the collection of duties due 
February 8, 2005, and again directs CBP to work with the 
Departments of Commerce and Treasury, and the Office of the 
United States Trade Representative (and all other relevant 
agencies) to complete a joint report to the Committee providing 
a coordinated plan, including legislative or regulatory changes 
proposed by CBP, if necessary, to increase anti-dumping and 
countervailing duty collections, particularly related to cases 
involving unfairly-traded Asian imports. The CBP annual reports 
on CDSOA for fiscal years 2003 and 2004 showed a failure to 
collect millions in assessed duties. The Committee directs CBP 
to break out the non-collected amounts for each of fiscal years 
2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 by order and claimant, along with a 
description of each of the specific reasons for non-collection 
with respect to each order.
    Fleet Management Report.--The Committee directs the fleet 
management report, which was due on February 8, 2005, be 
delivered to the Committee as soon as possible.
    Border Crossing Cards.--The Committee is aware scanners 
used to read and verify the identity of Mexican citizens via 
the swiping of Border Crossing Cards, or laser visas, are not 
deployed at all primary inspection lanes--including passenger 
vehicle lanes--along the Southwest border. The Committee 
believes these cards are a valuable identification tool and 
requests a report by February 18, 2006, on the plans to 
continue use of the Border Crossing Cards and the card 
scanners, the analysis performed to decide not to deploy 
scanners to all primary vehicle inspection lanes along the 
Southwest border, and the security benefits derived from the 
use of card scanners.
    Training.--The Committee is aware legacy Customs inspectors 
and CBP officers who received basic training at FLETC between 
January 1, 2002, and October 1, 2004, were not compensated for 
the sixth day of training for each week during that period. The 
Committee directs the Department to report to the Committee no 
later than December 1, 2005, on its compliance with the recent 
arbitration ruling on this matter.
    Tobacco Imports.--The Committee is concerned there is 
insufficient coordination between those Federal agencies 
responsible for tracking and permitting tobacco products to be 
imported into the United States, and those Federal agencies 
responsible for ensuring that Federal tax and trade laws and 
other Federal requirements applicable to such imports are met. 
The Committee directs the Department, in consultation with the 
U.S. Department of Treasury, to report by February 18, 2006, on 
automating the interface between the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax 
and Trade Bureau [TTB] and CBP as a part of the on-going 
Automated Commercial Environment [ACE] project. This report 
should include projected costs of developing and supporting the 
interface between CBP and TTB, a projected timeline for 
developing this interface, the associated software changes to 
ACE required to automate the tobacco import process, the 
impediments to manually verifying each TTB import permit 
number, and any further actions planned by CBP to implement a 
verification process of certifications required under the 
Imported Cigarette Compliance Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-476).
    Agricultural Inspections.--The Committee is aware of the 
March 31, 2005, the USDA Inspector General report ``Transition 
and Coordination of Border Inspection Activities Between USDA 
and DHS'', that calls for an increased coordination process for 
imported food inspections between the Animal and Plant Health 
Inspection Service and CBP. The Committee requests the 
Department, in conjunction with the USDA, to submit a report by 
February 18, 2006, which details the specific actions each 
agency will take, or has already taken, to address the apparent 
32 percent reduction in agriculture inspections and the lack of 
coordination and access between the Departments to targeting 
and planning intelligence information.
    Agricultural Pests.--The Committee notes Hawaii's globally 
significant natural environment, as well as the State's 
important diversified agricultural industry, are uniquely 
vulnerable to the introduction of invasive weeds, animals, 
insects, and diseases. The Committee expects the Department to 
work with the USDA and the Hawaii Department of Agriculture to 
share information and expertise to ensure their respective 
inspection and quarantine activities provide coordinated and 
collaborative biosecurity protection for the State.
    Included in the amount recommended by the Committee is 
continued funding at the fiscal year 2005 level for part-time 
and temporary positions in Honolulu, Hawaii.

House allowance.........................................     347,780,000
Committee recommendation................................     320,580,000

    The Customs and Border Protection [CBP] Air and Marine 
Interdiction, Operations, Maintenance, and Procurement [AMO] 
account funds the capital procurement and total operations and 
maintenance costs of the CBP air and marine program and 
provides support to other Federal, State, and local agencies.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $320,580,000, to remain available 
until expended, for air and marine interdiction, operations, 
maintenance, and procurement, to be available until expended. 
Included in this amount is $3,545,000 for inflationary 
adjustments, as requested in the budget.
    Long-Range Radar.--The Committee provides an increase from

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $311,381,000 for construction 
activities of Customs and Border Protection [CBP], to be 
available until expended. This includes an increase of 
$1,700,000, as requested in the budget, for inflationary 
adjustments. The Committee has included bill language making 
$55,000,000 available solely for the San Diego Sector Fence, 
and making $55,000,000 available solely for Tucson Sector 
tactical infrastructure improvements.
    Construction Associated with 1,000 New Border Patrol 
Agents.--Included in the amount recommended by the Committee is 
$81,963,000 for the construction requirements associated with 
1,000 new Border Patrol Agents.
    San Diego Sector Fence.--The Committee provides $55,000,000 
for completion of the fence in the San Diego Sector, including 
environmental mitigation. This represents the full cost of the 
project, which is expected to be completed in fiscal year 2009.
    Tucson Sector Tactical Infrastructure.--The Committee 
provides $55,000,000 for tactical infrastructure projects 
within the Tucson Sector. The Committee is strongly committed 
to providing resources to enable the Border Patrol and the 
Department to gain operational control in the Tucson Sector.
    Advanced Training Center.--The Committee provides 
$26,000,000 for site acquisition, land development, and other 
activities for the expansion of the Advanced Training Center. 
The Committee directs the Department to submit a master plan 
for the expansion of the Advanced Training Center, a spending 
plan for the Center (as detailed below), and the projected 
training needs of CBP at the facility for each of fiscal years 
2006-2010.
    Spending Plan.--The Committee directs the Department to 
submit a detailed spending plan for the following projects: 
construction associated with 1,000 new Border Patrol Agents, 
the San Diego Sector fence, Tucson Sector tactical 
infrastructure, and the Advanced Training Center by February 
18, 2006. The spending plan should include, but not be limited 
to, the following information for each project and sub-project: 
a detailed cost breakout for construction, design, planning, 
project management; total estimated project and sub-project 
cost; and date each phase of the project and sub-project is 
scheduled to begin and be completed.
    The Committee expects the Department to continue to work 
with the General Services Administration on its nationwide 
strategy to prioritize and address the infrastructure needs at 
the land border ports-of-entry and to comply with the 
requirements of the Public Buildings Act of 1959 (40 U.S.C. 
3301) to seek necessary funding.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations for the base funding of $93,418,000, derived

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2005 \1\................................  $2,458,494,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   2,892,281,000
House allowance.........................................   3,064,081,000
Committee recommendation................................   3,050,416,000

\1\ Excludes $349,000,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations; 
includes $105,100,000 in supplemental appropriations and a $85,200,000 
rescission pursuant to Public Law 109-13.

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $3,050,416,000, for salaries and 
expenses of Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] for 
fiscal year 2006. This includes increases from the fiscal year 
2005 level of $18,124,000 for pay and other inflationary 
adjustments, as requested in the budget, and $24,250,000 in 
annualizations associated with the resources provided in the 
Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Defense, the Global 
War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief Act, 2005 (Public Law 109-
13).
    The Committee includes language in the bill placing a 
$35,000 limit on overtime paid to any employee; making up to 
$5,000,000 available for special operations; making up to 
$1,000,000 available for the payment of informants; making up 
to $11,216,000 available to reimburse other Federal agencies 
for the costs associated with the care, maintenance, and 
repatriation of smuggled illegal aliens; making not less than 
$102,000 available for promotion of public awareness of the 
child pornography tipline; making not less than $203,000 
available for Project Alert; and making $15,770,000 available 
for activities to enforce laws against forced child labor, of 
which $6,000,000 shall remain available until expended. Certain 
ICE operations, including the Law Enforcement Support Center, 
rely heavily on term employees. With the funds made available, 
the Committee encourages ICE to make conversion of term 
employees to permanent employees a priority as it resumes 
hiring.
    Congress provided $276,000,000 in emergency supplemental 
appropriations for the base activities of ICE in the Emergency 
Supplemental Appropriations for Defense, the Global War on 
Terror, and Tsunami Relief Act, 2005 (Public Law 109-13). The 
Committee reiterates ICE is to manage within the resources 
provided by this and future appropriations Acts; no further 
transfers or reprogrammings will be approved to provide 
additional resources for the base funding requirements of ICE. 
The Department and the Office of Management and Budget are to 
ensure proper management processes, practices, and controls are 
in place at ICE. To that end, the Committee directs the Chief 
Financial Officer to submit a plan that outlines the steps 
taken to improve the management of ICE, and any further 
corrective actions planned to ensure program increases funded 
for fiscal year 2006 are executed in a timely manner. Based on 
the additional resources provided to ICE for fiscal year 2005, 
the base request for ICE is recalculated to be $2,762,069,000, 
and all Committee recommendations build from that base.
    Visa Security Program.--Included in the amount recommended 
by the Committee is $18,827,000, an increase of $4,827,000, 9 
positions, and 5 full-time equivalents [FTEs] for one 
additional Visa Security Unit.
    Investigations.--Included in the amount recommended by the 
Committee is $1,281,355,000, 7,346 positions, 7,084 FTEs, an 
increase of $37,000,000, 300 investigator positions, and 150 
FTEs, for immigration investigations. The Committee believes 
these resources should not be narrowly focused on one type of 
immigration violation, but should be put towards an overall 
invigoration of immigration investigation efforts. There is a 
need to increase work in human smuggling, benefit and document 
fraud, and human trafficking, as well as worksite enforcement.
    The Committee does not provide the funding increase for 
temporary worker worksite enforcement proposed in the budget.
    Cyber Crime Center.--Included in the amount recommended by 
the Committee is an increase of $800,000 from the fiscal year 
2005 level for the cyber crime center.
    Interagency Crime and Drug Enforcement [ICDE] Activities, 
Investigations.--Included in the amount recommended by the 
Committee is an increase of $41,840,000, 332 positions, and 332 
FTEs from the fiscal year 2005 level, as requested in the 
budget, for ICDE activities. These do not represent new 
resources for ICDE, but replace funding that has been 
appropriated as part of the overall multi-agency ICDE 
appropriation within the U.S. Department of Justice [DOJ] and 
provided to ICE through a reimbursable agreement in prior 
fiscal years.
    Base Increase, Investigations.--The Committee does not 
include the $105,000,000, increase requested in the budget for 
base resources. The funds necessary to sustain operations of 
Investigations are provided in the recalculated base.
    Investigations Training.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $13,932,000 for Investigations 
training, an increase of $173,000 for the increased training 
requirements of the Visa Security program. The Committee does 
not include the $1,784,000 increase requested in the budget for 
training associated with temporary worker worksite enforcement.
    Interagency Crime and Drug Enforcement [ICDE] Activities, 
Intelligence.--Included in the amount recommended by the 
Committee is an increase of $1,838,000, 14 positions, and 14 
FTEs from the fiscal year 2005 level, as requested in the 
budget, for ICDE activities. These funds do not represent new 
resources for ICDE, but replace funding that has been 
appropriated as part of the overall multi-agency ICDE 
appropriation within the DOJ and provided to ICE through a 
reimbursable agreement in prior fiscal years.
    Detention Bed Space.--Included in the amount recommended by 
the Committee is a total of $842,300,000, an increase of 
$77,385,000, 32 positions, and 16 FTEs to fund an additional 
2,240 detention beds. The Committee does not include the 
$76,000,000 increase for base resources requested in the 
budget. The funds necessary to sustain operations of Custody 
Management are provided in the recalculated base.
    The resources provided by this bill, taken together with 
the resources provided in the Emergency Supplemental 
Appropriations for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and 
Tsunami Relief Act, 2005 (Public Law 109-13), will fund a total 
of 22,727 detention beds for fiscal year 2006 from all funding 
sources. The beds are funded as follows: 19,112 from ICE, 
Salaries and Expenses; 1,963 from the Breached Bond Detention 
Fund; 1,652 from the Immigration User Fee.
    Despite the increase recommended by the Committee, the need 
for detention bedspace exceeds available resources. The 
Committee believes there may be more cost efficient 
alternatives available to ICE for detention services. The 
Department is requested to provide a report to the Committee by 
February 18, 2006, on lower cost alternatives to current 
detention services, including portable housing.
    Immigration Enforcement Agents/Detention Officers.--
Included in the amount recommended is an increase of 
$18,000,000, 200 immigration enforcement agent/detention 
officer positions, and 100 FTEs.
    Arizona Border Control Initiative, Custody Management.--
Included in the amount recommended by the Committee is an 
increase of $25,000,000, as requested in the budget, for 
support of the Arizona Border Control Initiative.
    Base Increase, Custody Management.--The Committee does not 
include the $18,600,000 increase for base resources requested 
in the budget. The funds necessary to sustain operations of 
Custody Management are provided in the recalculated base.
    Alternatives to Detention.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $27,910,000, 176 positions, and 
137 FTEs, an increase of $15,400,000, 62 positions, and 31 
FTEs, for an expansion of the Alternatives to Detention 
program.
    The United States Commission on International Religious 
Freedom, in its February 2004 report, ``Asylum Seekers in 
Expedited Removal'', includes a number of recommendations 
regarding detention policies and facilities used for asylum 
applicants. The Department must balance the national security 
needs of this country with humanitarian needs of legitimate 
asylum applicants. The Committee requests the Department to 
report by February 18, 2006, on its response to the specific 
recommendations of the Commission regarding detention decisions 
for asylees and the steps it has taken to ensure consistent 
application of standards for asylum and credible fear within 
the Department.
    Base Increase, Alternatives to Detention.--The Committee 
does not include the $5,400,000 requested increase for base 
resources. The funds necessary for the Alternatives to 
Detention program are provided in the recalculated base.
    Fugitive Operations.--Included in the amount recommended by 
the Committee is $70,458,000, 399 positions, and 366 FTEs, an 
increase of $24,880,000, 60 positions, and 30 FTEs, for 
expansion of the Fugitive Operations program.
    Institutional Removal Program.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $62,927,000, 525 positions and 
454 FTEs, an increase of $23,355,000, 137 positions, and 69 
FTEs, for an expansion of the Institutional Removal Program 
[IRP]. The Committee directs ICE to conduct a study on 
nationwide expansion of the IRP, how this could be 
accomplished, necessary resources, and expected benefits.
    Arizona Border Control Initiative, Transportation and 
Removal.--Included in the amount recommended by the Committee 
is an increase of $14,349,000, as requested in the budget, for 
support of the Arizona Border Control Initiative.
    Legal Proceedings.--Included in the amount recommended by 
the Committee is $36,218,000, an increase of $3,500,000, 48 
positions, and 24 FTEs, for additional attorney personnel to 
reduce the case backlog.
    Homeland Secure Data Network.--The Committee's 
recommendation does not include $11,300,000 and 1 position, as 
proposed in the budget, for the Homeland Secure Data Network. 
Funding for this system is consolidated and included in the 
Committee's recommended appropriations level for the Office of 
the Chief Information Officer.
    Textile Transshipment Enforcement.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $4,750,000 for textile 
transshipment enforcement, as authorized by Section 352 of the 
Trade Act of 2002. The Trade Act of 2002 authorized 
appropriations for the hiring of 72 positions between CBP and 
ICE, including investigators. The Department is directed to 
report to the Committee by February 18, 2006, on how the funds 
for textile transshipment enforcement were used in fiscal years 
2004 and 2005, and include in that report a 5-year enforcement 
strategy to reduce textile transshipment.
    Legal Orientation Program.--Included in the amount 
recommended by the Committee is $1,000,000 for the Legal 
Orientation Program [LOP], to be transferred to the Executive 
Office for Immigration Review [EOIR] for execution. The United 
States Committee on International Religious Freedom, in its 
February 2004 report, recommended the nationwide expansion of 
the LOP, which it found saves on the costs of immigration 
detention, makes Immigration Court proceedings more efficient, 
and facilitates access to justice for detained aliens in 
removal proceedings. The Department, in consultation with EOIR, 
is directed to report to the Committee by February 18, 2006, on 
the net cost of expanding the LOP nationwide, and the timetable 
for such an expansion.
    Reducing the Number of Alien Absconders.--The Committee 
recognizes the importance of reducing the rate of aliens who do 
not comply with Orders of Removal, known as absconders. 
However, the ability to address this situation is not fully 
within the control of one Federal department. Both the 
Department of Homeland Security [DHS] and the Department of 
Justice [DOJ] must work closely together to achieve this goal. 
The Committee directs DHS, in conjunction with DOJ, to study 
the existing apprehension, detention, appeal, and removal 
policies and procedures. The Committee requests DHS and DOJ to 
jointly submit a report by February 18, 2006, on the efforts 
each Department will take to reduce the absconder rate, 
including proposed changes to existing policies, procedures, 
and laws to further assist in reducing the absconder 
population.
    Blanding, Utah.--The Committee directs ICE to submit a 
report, by February 18, 2006, on the costs and need for 
establishing a sub-office in southeastern Utah.
    Detention and Removals Reporting.--The Committee continues 
to request ICE to submit a quarterly report to the Committee 
which compares the number of deportation, exclusion, and 
removal orders sought and obtained by ICE. The report should be 
broken down by district in which the removal order was issued; 
by type of order (deportation, exclusion, removal, expedited 
removal, and others); by agency issuing the order; by the 
number of cases in each category in which ICE has successfully 
removed the alien; and by the number of cases in each category 
in which ICE has not removed the alien. The first fiscal year 
2006 quarterly report is to be submitted no later than January 
30, 2006.

Budget estimate, 2006...................................   4,734,784,000
House allowance.........................................   4,591,612,000
Committee recommendation................................   4,452,318,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $4,452,318,000 for aviation 
security. The Committee has included the new budgetary 
structure, as proposed in the budget, regarding screener 
operations. The Committee believes the new structure provides 
TSA with needed flexibilities and enables it to optimize 
screener workforce funds. However, the Committee reminds the 
Department and TSA that it must adhere to the reprogramming 
guidelines by program, project, and activity contained in 
Section 503 of this Act. Further, the Committee directs TSA to 
maintain the tracking and visibility of the previous budgetary 
structure and expects the Department to include both structures 
in future budget submissions.
    The Committee has included language in the bill providing 
reimbursement for security services and related equipment and 
supplies provided in support of general aviation access to the 
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport shall be credited to 
the ``Aviation Security'' appropriation and be available until 
expended for these purposes only.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2005 and budget

                         AVIATION SECURITY FEES

    Prior to September 11, 2001, aviation security was paid for 
and overseen by the commercial passenger air carriers. Pursuant 
to section 118 of Public Law 107-71, the Aviation and 
Transportation Security Act [ATSA], the Federal Government 
assumed responsibility for this mission. Through ATSA, the 
Government is authorized to collect fees from the air carriers 
for the carriers' portion of security costs based on what they 
paid in calendar year 2000, the last full year prior to 
September 11, 2001. According to TSA's initial estimates in 
2000, industry paid approximately $750,000,000 for security; 
however, upon further auditing by the Government Accountability 
Office [GAO], done at the request of the Committee, it was 
discovered the carriers only paid approximately $319,000,000 
(GAO-05-558, April 2005). However, the administration continues 
to rely on its collection estimate of $750,000,000 for fiscal 
year 2005, creating a $400,000,000 shortfall. The GAO audit 
(GAO-05-558) also found TSA should be collecting an annual 
average of approximately $448,000,000 from the air carriers, 
not the $319,000,000 previously collected by TSA. The 
President's budget request for fiscal year 2006 assumes TSA 
will collect $350,000,000 in air carrier fees which will be 
available to directly offset TSA appropriations requirements. 
The Committee continues to direct the Secretary of Homeland 
Security to utilize all existing authorities, without judicial 
review, to collect the approximately $448,000,000 annually 
allowable under ATSA. In addition, the Secretary is to provide 
to the Committee, on a quarterly basis, written notification of 
the schedule and plan for the collection of the appropriate 
level of fees from the air carriers.
    In addition, the President's fiscal year 2006 budget 
proposes a legislative proposal, as a general provision to the 
appropriations legislation, to increase passenger aviation 
security fees to generate an estimated additional 
$1,680,000,000 in offsetting collections which the Committee 
has not included.

                           SCREENER WORKFORCE

    The Committee recommends $2,334,003,000 for screener 
workforce requirements. The following table summarizes the 
Committee's recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2005 
and budget request levels:

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

    Contract Screening Airports.--The Committee recommends 
$146,151,000 for contract screening airports for fiscal year 
2006. This amount is $16,497,000 more than the fiscal year 2005 
level and the same as the budget request.
    The Committee is aware there has been minimal interest in 
the TSA screener ``opt-out'' program thus far. To date, the 
Committee has provided the funding requested for this effort 
with the understanding there is airport interest in aviation 
privatization. If this proves untrue, the Committee encourages 
TSA to reprogram these funds pursuant to section 503 of this 
Act.
    Screener Workforce (Excluding Privatized Screening).--The 
Committee recommends $2,187,852,000 for passenger and baggage 
screener workforce personnel compensation and benefits. This 
amount is $106,494,000 less than the fiscal year 2005 level. 
The Committee provides $1,375,068,000 for the passenger 
screener workforce and accompanying compensation and benefits. 
The Committee includes the fiscal year 2005 pay annualization 
of $7,040,000, and $48,279,000 in pay and non-pay related 
inflationary costs for fiscal year 2006, as proposed in the 
budget. In addition, the Committee includes a reduction of 
$5,737,000 related to realized efficiencies, as proposed in the 
budget.
    The Committee provides $812,784,000 for the baggage 
screener workforce and accompanying compensation and benefits. 
The Committee includes the fiscal year 2005 pay annualization 
of $4,134,000, and $12,996,000 in pay and non-pay related 
inflationary costs for fiscal year 2006, as proposed in the 
budget. In addition, the Committee includes a reduction related 
to efficiencies totaling $3,206,000, as proposed in the budget.
    The Committee includes language in the bill to increase 
TSA's flexibility regarding screener workforce resources by 
allowing the transfer of funds from the screener workforce 
accounts to purchase screening equipment.

                      SCREENER TRAINING AND OTHER

    Screener Training and Other.--The Committee recommends 
$261,250,000 for screener training and other activities. The

    Screener Training and Other.--The Committee recommends 
$261,250,000 for screener training and other workforce costs, 
as requested in the budget. The Committee includes in its 
recommendation $2,220,000 in inflationary increases, a 
reduction of $544,000 for efficiencies realized by TSA, and a 
program decrease of $55,562,000, as requested in the budget. 
The Committee also includes within the non-pay costs for the 
passenger screeners (other) account $794,000 for inflationary 
costs, a $188,000 reduction for the realization of 
efficiencies, and a program decrease of $8,325,000.
    The Committee provides the fiscal year 2006 budget request 
of $16,203,000 for ``Screener, other'', which includes 
$4,000,000 for tort claims; $3,000 for representation funds; 
$2,400,000 for the model workplace initiative; and $9,800,000 
for hazardous materials disposal.

                       OTHER SCREENING OPERATIONS

    The Committee recommends $796,695,000 for screening

    Human Resource Services.--The Committee provides 
$207,234,000 for human resource services, as requested by the 
budget.
    Checkpoint Support.--The Committee recommends $172,461,000, 
an increase of $48,961,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level and 
$15,000,000 from the budget request. Funding is provided for 
passenger checkpoint support for reconfiguration, purchase, 
installation, and maintenance of checkpoint equipment, and 
electronic surveillance of checkpoints.
    The Committee provides additional funding to accelerate 
testing, procurement and deployment of new checkpoint 
technologies, including imaged-based passenger screening. The 
Committee believes the integrated use of new technologies, 
which can consistently perform in an operational environment, 
will increase the accuracy and efficiency of aviation security 
enabling TSA to reduce its workforce.
    TSA is to submit as soon as possible the report requested 
in the statement of managers accompanying the Department of 
Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2005 (Public Law 108-334) 
on efforts to test and deploy emerging technologies to screen 
passengers and carry-on baggage. Further, the Committee directs 
TSA to work with the National Institute of Standards and 
Technology to develop standards for checkpoint technologies in 
an effort to improve and certify emerging checkpoint 
technologies which can perform consistently and efficiently 
once deployed.
    Explosive Detection Systems [EDS]/Explosive Trace Detection 
[ETD] Procurement.--The Committee recommends $180,000,000, the 
same as the fiscal year 2005 level, and $50,000,000 more than 
the budget request, for EDS/ETD procurement. The Committee 
remains concerned the President's budget request for fiscal 
year 2006 cut this critically important program by over 30 
percent. Within the funds provided, no less than $50,000,000 
shall be made available to procure and deploy next generation 
explosive detection systems, including in-line systems, that 
have been tested, certified, and are being piloted.
    Next generation EDS systems are potentially more efficient 
than the current generation of screening units and may 
demonstrate a significant improvement in installation, 
integration, and life-cycle costs when compared to existing 
systems. The Department should explore multiple technologies in 
this area.
    The Committee also is supportive of airport testing of new 
technology and equipment and expects current categories of 
pilot airports to receive equal technology.
    Airport Security Modifications.--The Aviation Security 
Capital Fund authorized by Public Law 108-176, the Vision 100-
Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act, makes $250,000,000 
available for fiscal year 2006 from fee collections to enter 
into Letters of Intent [LOIs] with airports for the 
installation of explosive detection systems.

              AVIATION SECURITY DIRECTION AND ENFORCEMENT

    The Committee recommends $1,060,370,000 for aviation 
security direction and enforcement. The following table

    Aviation Regulation and Other Enforcement.--The Committee 
continues the fiscal year 2005 funding level of $230,000,000 
for aviation regulation and other enforcement.
    Airport Management, Staff, Information Technology, and 
Support.--The Committee provides $748,370,000, of which 
$279,662,000, as requested in the budget, is for management and 
staff and $468,708,000 is for information technology. The 
Committee believes increased funding for technology is 
imperative to maintain real-time intelligence and operational 
information critical for effective and efficient aviation 
security.
    Federal Flight Deck Officer and Flight Crew Training 
Programs.--The Committee recommends $32,000,000, $7,000,000 
more than the fiscal year 2005 level. The Committee provides 
$29,000,000 to support continuation of Federal Flight Deck 
Officer training. In addition, $3,000,000 is provided for 
voluntary flight crew training.
    Air Cargo Security.--The Committee recommends $50,000,000, 
$10,000,000 more than the fiscal year 2005 and budget request 
levels, for air cargo security activities. In addition, the 
Committee provides an increase of $19,162,000 to develop 
technologies and initiate demonstration and pilot programs 
within the Science and Technology high explosives 
countermeasures portfolio.
    Of the increase provided for fiscal year 2006 for air cargo 
security, $7,000,000 is provided for the hiring of regulatory 
inspectors to ensure industry compliance and $3,000,000 is to 
increase inspection of air cargo on international planes and 
air cargo transported by commercial passenger planes 
domestically. This will complement the 100 regulatory 
inspectors funded for fiscal year 2005 as part of the first 
phase of a multi-year plan to provide increased inspection and 
enforcement regulatory oversight.
    In the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 
2005 (Public Law 108-334), TSA was instructed to issue a 
security program and take such other necessary actions to 
triple the percentage of cargo inspected on passenger aircraft. 
The Committee appreciates that TSA is in the process of 
implementing this tripling of inspection and expects to achieve 
this threshold by mid-summer. For fiscal year 2006, the 
Committee directs TSA to work with other entities within DHS, 
including Science and Technology, to develop technologies that 
will move TSA forward toward achieving a goal of screening 100 
percent of cargo on passenger aircraft.
    The Committee recommends continued funding for the 
maintenance of the automated ``known shipper'' database 
currently being deployed to centralize data submitted by 
indirect air carriers and shippers to allow the immediate 
verification of the status of a specific shipper and to enhance 
the determination of high-risk air cargo for screening.
    TSA is to continue to coordinate the ``known shipper'' and 
Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism programs to develop 
a domestic air cargo targeting capability to promote supply 
chain security. The Committee encourages increased random 
screening inspections of air cargo transported on passenger and 
all-cargo air carriers.

                    SURFACE TRANSPORTATION SECURITY

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $48,000,000

House allowance.........................................      36,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      36,000,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $36,000,000 for surface 
transportation security, an increase of $4,000,000 from the 
budget request. Within the amount provided, the Committee 
includes $117,000 for the annualization of the fiscal year 2005 
pay raise, $444,000 for the fiscal year 2006 pay raise, and a 
total reduction of $6,561,000, including $113,000 for 
efficiencies realized and $6,448,000 for base realignment. The 
following table summarizes the Committee's recommendations as

    Rail Security.--The Committee recommends $8,000,000 for the 
safety and security of the Nation's railways, as requested in 
the budget.
    Of the total amount provided, $4,000,000 is for the 
deployment of an additional 50 Federal compliance inspectors in 
fiscal year 2006 for mass transit and passenger rail. These 
inspectors are to conduct on-site inspections of transit and 
passenger rail systems to ensure compliance with minimum 
standards security directives and to identify coverage gaps. 
The Committee expects TSA Federal compliance inspectors to 
leverage existing TSA, Federal Railroad Administration, and 
Federal Transit Authority resources. The Committee also 
provides $2,000,000 for the deployment of canine explosives 
detection teams. Additional funding for rail security is 
provided under the Office of State and Local Government 
Coordination and Preparedness, Science and Technology, and 
Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection. The 
Department is to report by February 18, 2006, on the deployment 
of the inspectors funded for fiscal year 2005 and planned for 
fiscal year 2006.
    Hazards Materials Truck Tracking.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $4,000,000 to coordinate tracking and 
monitor truck shipments of hazardous materials.
    Support Staffing.--The Committee recommends $24,000,000 for 
administrative staffing for surface transportation security.
    Surface Transportation.--The Committee is cognizant of the 
disparity of resources between surface transportation security 
and aviation security. The Committee encourages TSA to utilize 
technologies which would have the effect of force multipliers 
when considering the movement of goods and commerce on our rail 
and inland navigation systems.

  Alien Flight School, $10,000,000.
\4\ By transfer from the Department of Justice.
\5\ $9,700,000 included under ``Screening Operations''.

    Secure Flight.--The Committee recommends $56,696,000 for 
Secure Flight. The Committee recommendation, in conjunction 
with available carryover balances, should be sufficient to meet 
fiscal year 2006 program requirements.
    The Committee supports the additional layer of aviation 
security provided through the Secure Flight program. However, 
delays in obtaining Passenger Name Record data from air 
carriers needed for testing have postponed the initial 
operating capability of the system. The Committee encourages 
TSA to commence rulemaking proceedings and, if needed, issue a 
security directive at the earliest possible date to require air 
carriers to release data necessary for testing.
    Crew Vetting.--The Committee recommends $13,000,000, as 
requested in the budget, for continued evaluation and analysis 
of airline crew lists against watch lists and lost/stolen 
passport lists.
    Screener Administration and Operations.--The Committee 
recommends $5,000,000 for screener administration and 
operations to carryout transportation vetting and credentialing 
activities.
    Registered Traveler.--The Committee assumes $20,000,000, as 
included in the budget, in fee collections to fully integrate 
the international and domestic registered traveler program. 
Upon the successful completion of pilot programs, the Committee 
expects TSA to expand this program to all travelers in a timely 
manner.
    Transportation Worker Identification Credential.--The 
Committee assumes $100,000,000, as included in the budget, in 
fee collections for the Transportation Worker Identification 
Credential [TWIC]. The Committee is aware card production has 
been halted. The Committee is concerned TSA will be unable to 
meet its goals for card production and distribution and directs 
the Department to submit quarterly reports regarding the 
progress on meeting these goals.
    Hazardous Materials Driver License Endorsement Program.--
The Committee assumes $50,000,000, as included in the budget, 
in fee collections to conduct name and criminal background 
checks on an estimated 3.5 million hazardous materials 
commercial drivers.
    Alien Flight School Background Checks.--The Alien Pilot 
Security Assessment Program was transferred to the Department 
of Homeland Security from the Department of Justice pursuant to 
Section 612 of Public Law 108-176. The Committee assumes 
$10,000,000, as included in the budget, in fee collections to 
conduct background checks on aliens and other individuals 
determined by the Secretary to present risk to aviation and 
national security.

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $5,459,246,000 for Coast Guard 
Operating Expenses, including $24,500,000 from the Oil Spill 
Liability Trust Fund and $1,200,000,000 for Coast Guard 
defense-related activities, including drug interdiction. The 
Committee recommendation includes $12,000,000 to implement the 
May 13, 2005, decision by the Commandant to restructure the 
Mariner Licensing and Documentation Program. The Committee 
approves the transfer of $47,500,000 in polar icebreaking 
funding from the fiscal year 2005 level to the National Science 
Foundation [NSF]. The Committee also includes $10,108,000 to 
replace the existing obsolete and unstable cutter boats with 
more capable Over-the-Horizon Cutter Boats. This platform 
nearly doubles the speed of the existing cutter boats and 
increases secure communication capabilities. The Committee 
provides an increase of $22,196,000 for enhanced Maritime 
Domain Awareness, including $16,496,000 for increased Maritime 
Patrol Aircraft [MPA] operations in response to the March 2003 
Coast Guard Maritime Patrol Aircraft requirements study. The 
Committee recommendation does not include $16,500,000 for one-
time reinvestment costs; $7,000,000, for detection materials; 
or a $12,592,000 increase in operational funding for the C-
130Js as requested in the budget. Follow-on costs associated 
with C4ISR and Rescue 21, as requested in the budget, are 
partially funded at the levels of $12,330,000 and $4,292,000, 
respectively. These programmatic reductions and other general 
increases are reflected in the six Program, Project, and 
Activity accounts based upon the fiscal year 2006 budget 
estimates provided by the Department of Homeland Security. 
Further, the Committee rescinds $16,800,000 in unobligated 
balances due to the successful completion of port security 
assessments at all tier one strategic ports. As stated in the 
conference report accompanying Public Law 108-11, ``this 
funding will allow the Coast Guard to complete port security 
assessments at all tier one strategic ports.'' Therefore, this 
unobligated balance will be applied toward an increase in 
funding for the Office of State and Local Government 
Coordination and Preparedness port security grants program.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2005 and budget

\2\ Excludes $33,367,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations for costs related to hurricanes pursuant to
  Public Law 108-324, and $112,300,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations for costs related to Operation
  Iraqi Freedom and tsunami relief pursuant to Public Law 109-13.

    Reprogramming.--The specific detail in the above table 
shall serve as the controls for purposes of any reprogramming 
of funds pursuant to Section 503 of this Act.
    Maritime Domain Awareness.--The Committee is encouraged by 
the coordinated efforts of the U.S. Navy and Northern Command 
with the Department of Homeland Security through the Coast 
Guard. As this system architecture continues to evolve, it is 
important to leverage existing Department of Defense [DoD] 
intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities, 
such as DoD's Distributed Common Ground System which is used by 
the four military services to expedite delivery of the 
capability, eliminate redundancies, and ensure joint 
interoperability between Navy and Coast Guard forces.
    Polar Icebreakers.--The Committee understands a Memorandum 
of Understanding between the Coast Guard and NSF will be 
finalized in the coming months and expects that all costs to 
operate the polar icebreakers for NSF research, including 
unanticipated maintenance, will be reimbursed by NSF.
    Coast Guard Yard.--The Committee recognizes the Coast Guard 
Yard at Curtis Bay, Maryland, is a critical component of the 
Coast Guard's core logistics capability that directly supports 
fleet readiness. The Committee is aware the Coast Guard Yard 
has done significant hull sustainment work on eight 110-foot 
Island Class Patrol boats and has an operating production line 
that could rapidly provide additional support for major hull 
repairs.
    Quarterly Acquisition and Mission Emphasis Reports.--The 
Commandant is directed to continue to submit the quarterly 
acquisition and mission emphasis reports to the Committee 
consistent with the deadlines articulated under Section 360 of 
Division I of Public Law 108-7.
    Fisheries Enforcement.--The Committee is aware due to 
limited support facilities available at Shemya, Galena, Cold 
Bay, and other western Aleutian Islands, aircraft deployments 
cannot be maintained throughout the North Pacific Maritime 
Boundary Line during high threat season. The Committee is also 
aware in the previous 4 fiscal years the Coast Guard has failed 
to detect or interdict incursions into the United States 
exclusive economic zone in the Western Pacific. Therefore, the 
Committee directs the Coast Guard to submit a report to the 
Committee by February 18, 2006, on its plans to meet these 
fisheries enforcement needs, including an evaluation of the 
potential use of unmanned aircraft, offshore platforms, and 
other assets for detecting or interdicting such incursions.
    Coast Guard Housing.--The Committee is aware of the 
shortage of Coast Guard family housing throughout the United 
States and directs the Coast Guard to issue a report to the 
Committees on Appropriations by February 18, 2006, on the 
status of family housing needs on a State-by-State basis.
    Ballast Water Program.--The Committee continues to include 
the President's request level of $4,000,000 for support of the 
National Ballast Information Clearinghouse, Shipboard 
Technology Evaluation Program, a Ballast Water Exchange Meter, 
and program oversight.
    Marine Vessel and Cold Water Safety Education.--The 
Committee encourages the Coast Guard to continue existing 
cooperative agreements and partnerships with organizations that 
provide marine vessel safety training and cold water immersion 
education and outreach programs for fishermen and children.
    Port Exercise Programs.--The Committee recognizes the 
importance for our Nation's ports to be prepared to prevent and 
respond to a possible terrorist attack. The Coast Guard has 
concluded that a 1-month closure of a major port would cost the 
U.S. economy $60,000,000,000. With funds provided by Public Law 
107-206, the Coast Guard partnered with the Transportation 
Security Administration to implement and execute 40 port 
security exercise programs which will take place between August 
2005 and October 2007. The Committee directs the Coast Guard to 
include all 55 military and economically-strategic ports in 
this program and requires the Coast Guard to submit a schedule 
for when each port will take place in the planned exercises 
within 30 days of enactment of this Act.

                ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE AND RESTORATION

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $17,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      12,000,000
House allowance.........................................      12,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      12,000,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $12,000,000 for environmental 
compliance and restoration, as requested in the budget.

                            RESERVE TRAINING

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $113,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     119,000,000
House allowance.........................................     119,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     119,000,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $119,000,000 for Reserve training, 
as requested in the budget.

              ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION, AND IMPROVEMENTS

Appropriations, 2005 \1\................................    $966,200,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   1,269,152,000
House allowance.........................................     798,152,000
Committee recommendation \2\............................   1,141,802,000

\1\ Includes $16,000,000 rescission pursuant to Public Law 108-90 and 
excludes $49,200,000 in emergency supplemental appropriations for cost 
related to Operation Iraqi Freedom pursuant to Public Law 109-13.
\2\ Includes rescissions totaling $82,998,000.

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $1,141,802,000 for acquisitions, 
construction, and improvements, including $20,000,000 from the 
Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund. The Committee does not fund the 
budget request of $10,000,000 for the High Frequency 
Recapitalization Program. Direct personnel costs are provided 
at the fiscal year 2005 level. The Committee provides 
$18,500,000 for the Response Boat-Medium. The Committee 
provides $40,000,000 for systems engineering and integration 
and the fiscal year 2005 level of $38,000,000 for government 
program management. The following table summarizes the 
Committee's recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2005 
and budget request levels:

\1\ Fiscal year 2005 missionization was funded by transfer from the Department of Defense.
\2\ Pursuant to Public Law 108-334.
\3\ Reflects $40,000,000 transfer to the HH-65 reengining project pursuant to Public Law 108-447.
\4\ Includes transfer of $40,000,000 from Rescue 21 pursuant to Public Law 108-447.
\5\ Rescission of funds appropriated by Public Law 108-90 for the ``Fast Response Cutter/110-123 ft. patrol boat
  conversion'' line item.
\6\ Excludes emergency supplemental appropriations of $49,200,000 pursuant to Public Law 109-13.

    Airborne Use of Force [AUF].--No funding is provided for 
AUF capability, as requested in the budget. The unobligated 
balance in this account is sufficient to meet the planned 
expenditure needs of this program for fiscal year 2006.
    C-130 Missionization.--The Committee urges the Coast Guard 
to continue to acquire missionization funding from the 
Department of Defense and properly reflect the funding history 
in the fiscal year 2007 budget submission.
    Automatic Identification System.--The Committee provides 
the fiscal year 2005 funding level of $24,000,000 for the 
Automatic Identification System. The Committee notes this 
program had significant unobligated balance of funds in fiscal 
year 2004 and the Coast Guard estimates unobligated balances in 
the amounts of $16,600,000 for fiscal year 2005; $11,900,000 
for fiscal year 2006; and $7,200,000 for fiscal year 2007. For 
this reason, the Committee does not provide the increase in 
funding for this program, as requested in the budget.
    Rescue 21.--The Committee has reviewed the timeline for 
acquisition and installation of the Rescue 21 system. Given 
current unobligated balances of funds and planned carryover of 
these amounts into fiscal year 2006, the Committee provides 
$81,000,000 for the program, $20,000,000 less than the budget 
request and an increase of $3,000,000 from the fiscal year 2005 
level.
    Deepwater.--The Committee is extremely disappointed with 
the poor congressional justifications accompanying the 
President's budget request for fiscal year 2006. Despite clear 
instruction in both the bill and report language in fiscal year 
2005, the documents submitted and the lack of timeliness in 
which they were provided, both at the time of the President's 
budget submission and in answer to subsequent requests for 
justification materials, is unacceptable. Lack of information 
about the future of Deepwater brings into serious question the 
wisdom of funding this program at the level requested in the 
President's Budget. It is only through information provided 
from outside the Department that the Committee has been able to 
satisfy only a basic level of knowledge regarding the assets 
which it has funded. Despite the Committee's disappointment 
with the program as a whole and the way it has been managed, 
$905,602,000 for Deepwater is provided by the Committee. The 
Committee directs the Coast Guard to update the Deepwater plan 
submitted to Congress on May 31, 2005, to include the total 
cost for each asset that will be procured and each legacy asset 
that will be maintained. The updated plan should also describe 
how the Coast Guard will meet operational requirements under 
the lower-tiered funding level versus the higher-tiered level 
included in the May 31, 2005, revised plan. The Committee 
expects the updated plan to be submitted to the Committee no 
later than 60 days following enactment of this Act.
    Operational Gap Analysis.--The revised Deepwater plan 
submitted to Congress on March 25, 2005, does not include a 
plan to address the gap between current operational 
capabilities and those required to meet operational 
requirements. For instance, the Coast Guard concluded in the 
March 2003 Coast Guard MPA requirements study that 66,854 
maritime patrol hours in fiscal year 2004 were required to meet 
operational requirements, but existing MPA assets could only 
provide 32,400 hours, less than half of what was required. The 
plan was silent on how the Coast Guard proposed to close this 
identified gap. The Committee, therefore, directs the Coast 
Guard to conduct an operational gap analysis for all Deepwater 
assets and provide an action plan on how the revised Deepwater 
plan addresses the shortfalls between current operational 
capabilities and operational requirements applying advanced 
analytical methods for forecasting future needs. This plan 
should be submitted concurrently with the submission of the 
Coast Guard's fiscal year 2007 budget request.
    Maritime Patrol Aircraft.--The Committee is frustrated with 
the Coast Guard's apparent lack of direction regarding its 
Maritime Patrol Aircraft solution. Included in the Committee's 
recommendation is $68,000,000 for acquisition of two Maritime 
Patrol Aircraft.
    Unmanned Air Vehicle.--The Committee provides the fiscal 
year 2005 level of $43,000,000. This funding shall be applied 
toward the costs of final construction, missionization, initial 
spares and ground control stations associated with the first 
and second aircraft.
    HH-65 Reengining.--The Committee provides $133,100,000, as 
requested in the budget, for reengining the HH-65 fleet. The 
Committee is aware the Coast Guard plans to complete reengining 
of the operational fleet of 84 aircraft by February 2007, which 
is the fastest possible timeline based on the availability of 
engine kits and parts, increased production at the Coast 
Guard's Aviation Repair and Supply Center, and additional 
production capacity at a second facility. The Committee is 
pleased this project is being done as fast as possible and 
encourages the Coast Guard to maximize production capacity at a 
second facility in order to meet or beat this deadline. The 
Committee also expects the Coast Guard to continue to comply 
with all statutory procurement requirements with regard to 
engine kits, parts, and other components related to this 
program.
    Manned Covert Surveillance Aircraft.--The Committee 
rescinds $13,999,000 in unobligated balances of funds for the 
Covert Surveillance Aircraft.
    Fast Response Cutter and 110-123 Foot Conversion 
Programs.--The Committee is frustrated over the lack of 
responsiveness regarding inquiries into the Fast Response 
Cutter [FRC] and 110-123 foot conversion programs. The Coast 
Guard is unable to accurately reflect the obligation and 
expenditure of funds for the 110-123 foot conversion program 
and has ignored congressional intent regarding the fiscal year 
2004 funding provided. The Committee made available $66,000,000 
for both the conversion and FRC programs for fiscal year 2004 
and $30,000,000 for each program for fiscal year 2005. The 
funding was provided, as directed in the statement of managers 
accompanying the conference report on the Department of 
Homeland Security Act, 2004, for the ``Fast Response Cutter/
110-123 foot patrol boat conversion''. In fact, the Department 
requested, in a July 17, 2003, letter, that this line item be 
changed from 110-123 foot Patrol Boat Upgrade to IDS Patrol 
Boats for the specific reason of ``funding for one Fast 
Response Cutter or three 123 foot upgrades.'' The Committee 
maintains the purpose of a portion of the fiscal year 2004 
funds is for development of the FRC. Therefore, the Committee 
rescinds the unobligated balance of $68,999,000. This amount 
includes the unobligated balance for both the conversion and 
FRC programs in fiscal years 2004 and 2005, with the exception 
of the fiscal year 2005 unobligated balance for the FRC and 
$15,000,000 in remaining unobligated balances for the FRC in 
fiscal year 2004. The Committee directs the entire unobligated 
balance to be used for FRC development. Should any funding be 
required for follow-on work for the 110 foot conversion 
project, the Coast Guard is directed to submit a reprogramming 
letter to the Committees on Appropriations in accordance with 
section 503 of this Act.
    Command and Control System for Common Operating Picture 
[C4ISR].--The Committee provides $50,000,000.
    Capital Investment Plan.--The Committee expects the Coast 
Guard to continue to submit a comprehensive capital investment 
plan on an annual basis at the time the President's budget is 
submitted to the Congress.
    The Committee directs the Commandant of the Coast Guard to 
provide to the Congress, at the time that the President's 
budget is submitted, a list of approved but unfunded Coast 
Guard priorities and the funds needed for each.

                         ALTERATION OF BRIDGES

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $15,900,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................................
House allowance.........................................      15,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      15,000,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides $15,000,000 for the alteration of 
bridges, of which $5,000,000 is for the Fourteen Mile CSX 
Transportation Company Bridge, Mobile, Alabama; $2,000,000 is 
for the Burlington Northern Railroad Bridge, Burlington, Iowa; 
$3,000,000 is for the Galveston Causeway Bridge, Galveston, 
Texas; $2,000,000 is for the Elgin, Joliet, and Eastern Railway 
Company Bridge, Divine, Illinois; and $3,000,000 is for the 
Chelsea Street Bridge, Chelsea, Massachusetts.

Acquisition, and Technology''.

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $18,500,000 for the Coast Guard's 
research, development, test and evaluation activities. The 
Committee disagrees with the President's budget proposal to 
consolidate funding for Coast Guard research and development 
within the Department of Homeland Security Science and 
Technology ``Research, Development, Acquisition, and 
Operations'' account.

                              RETIRED PAY

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $1,085,460,000

House allowance.........................................   1,014,080,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,014,080,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $1,014,080,000 for retired pay, as 
requested in the budget.

                      United States Secret Service


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

\1\ Includes a rescission of $750,279 pursuant to Public Law 108-334.

    The Secret Service Salaries and Expenses appropriation 
provides funds for the protection of the President, the Vice 
President, and other dignitaries and designated individuals; 
enforcement of laws relating to obligations and securities of 
the United States and financial crimes, such as financial 
institutions and other fraud; planning and implementation of 
operational security plans for designated National Special 
Security Events; and protection of the White House and other 
buildings within the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $1,188,638,000 for salaries and 
expenses for fiscal year 2006. The Committee provides an 
increase of $33,413,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level for pay 
and inflationary adjustments, as requested in the budget.
    National Center for Missing and Exploited Children 
[NCMEC].--The Committee provides $2,100,000 for the Service's 
forensic support costs associated with NCMEC. The Committee 
provides $5,000,000, to remain available until expended, for a 
grant to NCMEC for activities related to investigations of 
exploited children.
    Applied Protective Technology (Temporary Sites) and White 
House Security Design.--The Committee provides an increase of 
$2,000,000 for field biological detection equipment at 
temporary sites to enhance the Service's protective mission. 
The Committee also provides $2,000,000 to study security 
enhancements at the White House, as requested in the budget. 
Funding for these initiatives is to be offset from funds in the 
base currently made available for protection of the Secretary 
of Treasury. The Committee includes a general provision in the 
bill requiring reimbursement of the Service for protection of 
agency heads other than the Secretary of Homeland Security 
beginning in fiscal year 2006.
    National Special Security Event Fund.--The Committee does 
not provide $5,000,000 included in the budget request for the 
National Special Security Event Fund. The Committee notes that 
funds provided for this purpose for fiscal year 2005 remain 
available until expended, and there is a current unobligated 
balance in the fund of over $3,500,000. The Committee also 
notes that the Department is carrying an unobligated balance in 
the Counterterrorism Fund which is available to supplement 
these funds, if necessary.
    Homeland Secure Data Network.--The Committee's 
recommendation does not include $193,000 proposed in the budget 
for the Homeland Secure Data Network [HSDN]. Funding for this 
system is consolidated and included in the Committee's 
recommended appropriations level for the Office of the Chief 
Information Officer.
    Legislative Authority.--The Committee does not continue a 
general provision regarding maintaining the Service as a 
distinct entity within the Department of Homeland Security. The 
Committee included this legislative authority for fiscal year 
2005 to enable the Service time to work with the authorizing 
committees of jurisdiction to secure this proposed statutory 
authority on a permanent basis.

     ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION, IMPROVEMENTS, AND RELATED EXPENSES

                        STATE AND LOCAL PROGRAMS

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $3,086,300,000
Budget estimate, 2006 \1\...............................   3,064,756,000
House allowance.........................................   2,831,400,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,694,300,000

\1\ Includes ``Management and Administration'' and ``Emergency 
Management Performance Grants''.

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $2,694,300,000 for State and Local 
Programs. The funds provided for State and local grants are to 
be used for purposes consistent with each State's homeland 
security strategy, including training and exercises; equipment, 
including interoperable communications equipment; and technical 
assistance; and may not be used for construction activities.
    State and local assistance is for strengthening ``first 
responders''--police, fire, rescue, emergency and other 
personnel--who are first on scene in the event of a terrorist 
attack. For the purpose of eligibility for funds under this 
heading, a ``local government'' will continue to include any 
county, city, village, borough, parish, town, district, or 
other political subdivision of any State, and any Indian tribe, 
with jurisdiction over Indian country. Furthermore, any port 
authority, transit authority, water district, regional planning 
commission, or council of government may be considered a local 
government.
    State and Local Assistance.--The Committee provides 
$1,518,000,000 for grants to States, urban areas, and regions, 
of which $425,000,000 shall be allocated to States and 
territories in the same amount distributed in the State minimum 
for fiscal year 2005. All funds above the amount automatically 
allocated to States and territories shall be allocated at the 
discretion of the Secretary of Homeland Security based on 
risks, threats, vulnerabilities, unmet essential capabilities, 
and cooperation of multiple jurisdictions in preparing domestic 
preparedness plans. Grants may be made to single or multiple 
jurisdictions in the same urban area or region. Use of these 
funds for construction or renovation of facilities is 
prohibited, except for minor construction or renovation for 
necessary guard facilities, fencing, and related security 
needs, as determined by the Secretary.
    The Committee has included bill language allowing up to 3 
percent of the grant dollars to be used for administrative 
expenses; requiring the Government Accountability Office to 
review the validity of the threat and risk factors, and the 
application of those factors in the allocation of funds prior 
to the Department of Homeland Security making final 
determinations of discretionary grant allocations; and 
exempting the grants from Section 6053(a) of title 31 U.S.C.
    The Committee expects the Department will work closely with 
the States on the implementation of Homeland Security 
Presidential Directive-8 (HSPD-8) to ensure that rigorous 
analysis is used in determining and assessing the unmet 
capabilities of State and local jurisdictions.
    Of the funds provided, $25,000,000, to remain available 
until expended, is for grants to tax exempt organizations 
determined by the Secretary to be at high risk of international 
terrorist attacks. Language is included in the bill to clarify 
that the determination of risk to a tax exempt organization is 
to be made solely by the Secretary and may not be delegated to 
another Federal, State, or local government official. Further, 
language is included requiring the Secretary to certify to the 
Committees on Appropriations the threat to each individual tax 
exempt organization three business days before the announcement 
of any grant award.
    Law Enforcement Terrorism Prevention Grants.--The Committee 
provides $400,000,000 for local law enforcement terrorism 
prevention grants, of which $155,000,000 shall be allocated to 
States and territories in the same amount distributed in the 
State minimum in fiscal year 2005. All funds above the amount 
automatically allocated to States and territories shall be 
allocated at the discretion of the Secretary based on risks, 
threats, vulnerabilities, unmet essential capabilities, and 
cooperation of multiple jurisdictions in preparing domestic 
preparedness plans. Use of these funds for construction or 
renovation of facilities is prohibited, except for minor 
construction or renovation for necessary guard facilities, 
fencing, and related security needs, as determined by the 
Secretary. Not to exceed 3 percent of the grant funds may be 
used for administration. The Committee expects the Department 
to work with the States on the implementation of HSPD-8 to 
ensure rigorous analysis is used in determining and assessing 
the unmet capabilities of State and local jurisdictions.
    Transportation and Infrastructure Grants.--The Committee 
provides $365,000,000 for discretionary transportation and 
infrastructure grants. Of the total provided: $200,000,000 is 
for port security grants; $100,000,000 is for rail and transit 
security grants; $50,000,000 is for buffer zone protection plan 
[BZPP] grants; $10,000,000 is for intercity bus security grants 
for the improvement of ticket identification, the installation 
of driver shields, the enhancement of emergency communications, 
and further implementation of passenger screening; and 
$5,000,000 is for trucking industry security grants to continue 
the Highway Watch Grant program, of which $2,350,000 is made 
available for emergency planning and exercises. Port security 
grants are pursuant to 46 United States Code 70107 (a) through 
(h), which shall be awarded based on threat notwithstanding 
subsection (a), for eligible costs as defined in subsections 
(b)(2), (3), and (4). Use of port security, rail and transit 
security, and BZPP grants for construction is allowed. The 
Committee expects the Transportation Security Administration 
and Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection to 
retain operational subject matter expertise and will be fully 
engaged in the administration of related grant programs. In 
addition, BZPP grants shall not be available for protection of 
establishments which are the responsibility of the Federal 
Government.
    Technology Transfer Program.--The Committee provides 
$50,000,000 for the Technology Transfer Program, known as the 
Commercial Equipment Direct Assistance Program [CEDAP]. The 
Committee directs the Department to award funding through CEDAP 
only if projects or equipment are consistent with State 
Homeland Security Strategies and the unmet essential 
capabilities identified through HSPD-8 implementation.
    The Committee encourages SLGCP to work with the Department 
of Defense [DOD] to ensure that promising technology, such as 
skin decontamination kits, currently in use by DOD is made 
available on the commercial market for purchase by State and 
local agencies responsible for homeland security.
    REAL ID Implementation Grants.--The Committee provides 
$40,000,000 for discretionary grants to States to assist with 
the implementation of the national standards for drivers' 
licenses, to be available until expended. These grants shall be 
made at the discretion of the Secretary. Language is included 
in the bill requiring the submission of an implementation plan 
for the responsibilities of the Department of Homeland Security 
under the recently enacted REAL ID Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-
13). This plan should include, but not be limited to, the 
proposed uses of the funds, and the criteria to be used to 
approve the extension of deadlines.
    National Programs.--Included in the amount recommended is 
$321,300,000 for national programs. This amount includes 
$20,000,000 for technical assistance; $145,000,000 for the 
existing members of the National Domestic Preparedness 
Consortium which provides an additional $2,000,000 from the 
fiscal year 2005 level for each consortium member; $25,000,000 
for Citizen Corps; $52,000,000 for exercises; $10,000,000 for 
the Metropolitan Medical Response System; $30,000,000 for 
demonstration training grants; $25,000,000 for continuing 
training grants; and $14,300,000 for evaluations and 
assessments.
    Technical Assistance.--The Committee provides $20,000,000 
for direct technical assistance to State and local governments. 
Of this amount $12,400,000 is for the Interoperable 
Communications Technical Assistance program to enhance 
interoperability of public safety communications.
    Demonstration Training Grants.--The Committee provides 
$30,000,000 for demonstration training grants. The Committee 
expects this to continue to be a peer-reviewed competitive 
grant program.
    Emergency Medical Services.--The Committee is concerned 
Emergency Medical Services [EMS] is not considered an equal 
player among the first responder community and encourages the 
Department to require States to include EMS representatives in 
State planning efforts.
    Interoperable Communications.--The Committee is concerned 
interoperable communications equipment is sometimes procured 
before the key elements of planning, governance, and training 
are addressed. The Committee directs that before grant dollars 
can be obligated by grantees for interoperable communications 
equipment, jurisdictions must certify to SLGCP that they have 
an implementation plan that includes the following: governance 
structures, policies, procedures, training, and planned 
exercises.
    Eligibility.--The Committee urges the Department to work 
with State and local governments to ensure that regional 
authorities, such as port, transit, or tribal authorities are 
given due consideration in the distribution of State formula 
grants.
    Best Practices.--The Committee recognizes the need to 
create a central collection and dissemination point for lessons 
learned and best practices that will allow States and 
localities to gain knowledge, expertise, and experience from 
the efforts of other States and localities. The Committee 
supports SLGCP's effort to continue the development of the 
Lessons Learned Information System and the Homeland Security 
Best Practices program to assist response professionals in 
communicating and sharing information effectively and securely.
    Use of Funds.--The Department is to submit a report to the 
Committee by February 18, 2006, detailing what State and local 
governments have purchased with fiscal year 2005 homeland 
security State and local assistance grants; whether these 
expenditures have complied with State homeland security plans; 
and how homeland security has been enhanced by such 
expenditures.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2005 and budget 
request levels:

                     FIREFIGHTER ASSISTANCE GRANTS

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $715,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     500,000,000
House allowance.........................................     650,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     615,000,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $615,000,000 for firefighter 
assistance grants, of which $65,000,000 is available for 
firefighter staffing grants, to remain available until 
September 30, 2007.
    The Committee directs the Department to continue the 
present practice of funding applications according to local 
priorities and those established by the United States Fire 
Administration; and to make $3,000,000 available for 
implementation of section 205(c) of Public Law 108-169 to the 
same grant applicants as in fiscal year 2005.

                EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PERFORMANCE GRANTS

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $180,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................         ( \1\ )
House allowance.........................................     180,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     180,000,000

\1\ Funding of $170,000,000 included under ``State and Local Programs''.

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $180,000,000 for emergency 
management performance grants [EMPG].
    EMPG is an essential source of funding for State and local 
emergency management. EMPG is one of the few remaining programs 
of the Department with an all-hazards mission. State and local 
governments currently have productive relationships with 
Emergency Preparedness and Response [EP&R;] regional emergency 
managers that are critical to maintain an all-hazards response 
capability. The Committee expects these relationships to 
continue.
    The Committee directs SLGCP to retain EMPG as a separate 
grant program and not to be combine its funding with any other 
grant allocation or application process. Not to exceed 3 
percent of grant funds may be for administrative expenses.

                         COUNTERTERRORISM FUND

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $8,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      10,000,000
House allowance.........................................      10,000,000
Committee recommendation................................       5,000,000

    The Counterterrorism Fund provides a means to cover 
Department of Homeland Security unbudgeted and unanticipated 
critical costs associated with providing support to counter, 
investigate, or pursue domestic or international terrorism, 
including payment of rewards in connection with these 
activities; and to re-establish the operational capability of 
an office, facility, or other property damaged or destroyed as 
a result of any domestic or international terrorist incident.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $5,000,000 for 
the Counterterrorism Fund. These funds are provided for 
responding to unforeseen emergencies not budgeted for in the 
regular process and are to be made available at the direction 
of the Secretary of Homeland Security with advance written 
notification provided to the Committee.
    The Committee also expects the Secretary to provide written 
notification to the Committee upon the designation of a 
national special security event. The written notification shall 
include the following information: location and date of the 
event, Federal agencies involved in the protection and planning 
of the event, the estimated costs of the event, and the source 
of funding to cover the anticipated expenditures.

                  EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE


                                SUMMARY

    The mission of Emergency Preparedness and Response [EP&R;] 
is to lead the Nation to prepare for, mitigate the effects of, 
respond to, and recover from major domestic disasters, both 
natural and man-made, including incidents of terrorism.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends a total program level of 
$2,837,947,000 for activities of EP&R; for fiscal year 2006. The 
following table summarizes the Committee's recommendations as 
compared to the fiscal year 2005 and budget request levels:

 Office of the Under Secretary for Emergency Preparedness and Response

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $4,211,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................       4,306,000
House allowance.........................................       2,306,000
Committee recommendation................................       4,306,000

    This appropriation funds the expenses of the Office of the 
Under Secretary for Emergency Preparedness and Response [EP&R;] 
for the coordination of recovery operations and disaster-
related activities with other Federal organizations and the 
American Red Cross, including salaries, travel and 
transportation, advisory and assistance services, and supplies 
and equipment.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    For the Office of the Under Secretary for Emergency 
Preparedness and Response, the Committee recommends $4,306,000, 
as requested in the budget. This amount includes $95,000 for 
annualization of prior year part year funding and 2005 pay 
raise.

            PREPAREDNESS, MITIGATION, RESPONSE, AND RECOVERY

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $239,499,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     235,499,000
House allowance.........................................     249,499,000
Committee recommendation \1\............................     193,899,000

\1\ Reflects rescission of $9,600,000.

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides $193,899,000 to support activities 
related to preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery 
[PMRR]. The Committee does not provide the $5,000,000 program 
increase requested in the budget for nuclear incident response, 
and includes a $10,000,000 reduction to non-recur the cost of 
the Medical surge study and capacity purchased in 2005, as 
requested in the budget.
    Urban Search and Rescue.--Included in the Committee 
recommendation is $30,000,000, an increase of $23,000,000 from 
the budget request, to support the 28 existing Urban Search and 
Rescue [USAR] teams, of which no more than $1,600,000 shall be 
used to administer, support, and train task forces.
    The Committee believes USAR teams represent a strong 
Federal-State partnership. The Committee directs the Department 
to work with USAR teams to develop an appropriate cost-share 
formula for the continued maintenance of this program. The 
Department should submit a report to the Committee, by February 
18, 2006, on the costs, such as maintaining the 1st and 2nd 
cache, replacing expiring drugs, and replacing or repairing 
equipment used in training and at actual disaster sites, as 
well as any other cost associated with the USAR program. The 
report should also include a justification of the appropriate 
division of costs between the USAR teams and the Federal 
Government.
    Catastrophic Planning.--The Committee does not approve 
$20,000,000 in catastrophic disaster planning, as requested in 
the budget.
    National Incident Management System.--The Committee also 
does not include $15,000,000 for the National Incident 
Management System and Integration Center and rescinds 
$9,600,000 in unobligated funds previously provided for this 
purpose.
    National Dam Safety Program.--The Committee understands the 
importance of the National Dam Safety Program in reducing risks 
to life and property from dam failure in the United States. The 
Committee strongly encourages EP&R; to continue funding the 
National Dam Safety Program at the fiscal year 2005 level of 
$5,500,000.
    U.S. Fire Service.--The Committee directs PMRR to undertake 
a study of the preparedness of local fire departments to meet 
traditional and post 9/11 mission requirements and encourages 
the Department to utilize an independent organization to 
complete the study. The last comprehensive study, ``A Needs 
Assessment of the U.S. Fire Service,'' was conducted in 
December 2002.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2005 and budget 
request levels.

                 ADMINISTRATIVE AND REGIONAL OPERATIONS

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $202,939,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     218,441,000
House allowance.........................................     225,441,000
Committee recommendation................................     216,441,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides $216,441,000 for administrative and 
regional operations. The Committee's recommendation does not 
include $2,100,000 proposed in the budget for the Homeland 
Secure Data Network [HSDN]. Funding for the HSDN system is 
consolidated and included in the Committee's recommended 
appropriations level for the Office of the Chief Information 
Officer.
    The Committee is concerned with administrative actions 
being taken to close the Federal Emergency Management Agency's 
Pacific Area Office. This office provides the primary Federal 
response to disasters throughout the Pacific Islands. Given the 
office's proximity to the other Pacific Islands within Region 
IX and the specialized knowledge of its staff on the islands' 
geography and cultures, the Committee directs EP&R; to continue 
to operate and support the Pacific Area Office.

                         PUBLIC HEALTH PROGRAMS

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $34,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      34,000,000
House allowance.........................................      34,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      34,000,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides $34,000,000 for public health 
programs to fund the National Disaster Medical System, as 
requested in the budget. The Committee encourages the 
Department to apply lessons learned from the SARS experience 
and use this research to develop better responses to emerging 
infectious diseases, such as SARS, avian flu, smallpox, and the 
Ebola virus.

                       BIODEFENSE COUNTERMEASURES

Appropriations, 2005 \1\................................  $2,507,776,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................................

\1\ Advance appropriations pursuant to Public Law 108-90 made available 
in fiscal year 2005.

    This program supports the government's efforts to secure 
protections and countermeasures to strengthen the Nation's 
preparedness against chemical, radiological, or nuclear agents 
that may be used in a terrorist attack against the United 
States by pre-purchasing critically needed vaccines and other 
countermeasures for biodefense.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    Advance appropriations for biodefense countermeasures were 
provided by the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations 
Act, 2004 (Public Law 108-90), to remain available until 
September 20, 2013.

              RADIOLOGICAL EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PROGRAM

Appropriations, 2005 \1\................................     -$1,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006 \1\...............................      -1,266,000
House allowance \1\.....................................      -1,266,000
Committee recommendation \1\............................      -1,266,000

\1\ Fee collections are estimated to exceed costs.

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides for the receipt and expenditure of 
fees collected, as authorized by Public Law 105-276. The budget 
estimates fee collections to exceed expenditures by $1,266,000 
in fiscal year 2006.

                            DISASTER RELIEF

Appropriations, 2005 \1\................................  $2,042,380,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   2,140,000,000
House allowance.........................................   2,000,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,000,000,000

\1\ Excludes $6,500,000,000 emergency supplemental appropriations 
pursuant to Public Law 108-324.

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $2,000,000,000 for disaster 
relief.

            DISASTER ASSISTANCE DIRECT LOAN PROGRAM ACCOUNT

Appropriations, 2005....................................        $567,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................         567,000
House allowance.........................................         567,000
Committee recommendation................................         567,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $567,000 in subsidy costs for 
disaster assistance direct loans, as requested in the budget. 
Language is included in the bill that gross obligations for the 
principal amount of direct loans not exceed $25,000,000.

                      FLOOD MAP MODERNIZATION FUND

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $200,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     200,068,000
House allowance.........................................     200,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     200,000,000

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $200,000,000 for the Flood Map 
Modernization Fund and includes language in the bill which 
provides that up to 3 percent of the funds may be made 
available for administrative purposes.

                     NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE FUND

Appropriations, 2005 \1\................................    $112,593,000
Budget estimate, 2006 \1\...............................     123,854,000
House allowance \1\.....................................     185,854,000
Committee recommendation \1\............................     123,854,000

\1\ Fully offset by fee collections.

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

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $123,854,000 for the National 
Flood Insurance Fund and provides that up to $28,000,000 may be 
transferred to the National Flood Mitigation Fund for expenses 
under section 1366 of the National Flood Insurance Act (42 
U.S.C. 4104c), as requested in the budget.

                     NATIONAL FLOOD MITIGATION FUND

Appropriations, 2005 \1\................................     $20,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006 \1\...............................      28,000,000
House allowance \1\.....................................      40,000,000
Committee recommendation \1\............................      28,000,000

\1\ By transfer from the National Flood Insurance Fund.

    The National Flood Mitigation Fund is an account which 
serves as a recipient of transfers from the National Flood 
Insurance Fund. A portion of the fees generated from 
collections by the National Flood Insurance Fund are 
transferred into the National Flood Mitigation Fund and then 
transferred into the National Predisaster Mitigation Fund for 
pre-disaster mitigation activities to reduce the risk of flood 
damage to structures.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee provides for the transfer of up to 
$28,000,000 from the National Flood Insurance Fund to this 
account, as requested in the budget.

                  NATIONAL PREDISASTER MITIGATION FUND

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $100,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     150,062,000
House allowance.........................................     150,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      37,000,000

    Funding in this account is dedicated to competitive grants 
for predisaster mitigation. This program operates independent 
of the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program funded through the DRF, 
which provides grants to a State in which a disaster had been 
declared.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $37,000,000 for the national 
predisaster mitigation fund. The Committee understands an 
estimated balance of at least $117,500,000 will carry over into 
fiscal year 2006 and be available for obligation. The Committee 
strongly encourages the Department to disburse funding in a 
timely fashion. The Committee is concerned that a high 
percentage of the funds appropriated in fiscal years 2003, 
2004, and 2005 remain obligated to date--21 percent, 91 
percent, and 97 percent, respectively. The Department is to 
provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations by 
February 18, 2006, on the impediments to timely obligation of 
funds with recommendations for how to remedy this situation, 
along with an inventory of outstanding grant applications by 
fiscal year.

                       EMERGENCY FOOD AND SHELTER

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $153,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     153,000,000
House allowance.........................................     153,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     153,000,000

    This appropriation funds grants to nonprofit and faith-
based organizations at the local level to supplement their 
programs for emergency food and shelter to provide for the 
immediate needs of the homeless.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $153,000,000 for the emergency 
food and shelter program, as requested in the budget.

TITLE IV--RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, TRAINING, ASSESSMENTS, AND SERVICES

           United States Citizenship and Immigration Services

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $160,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      80,000,000
House allowance.........................................     120,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      80,000,000

    United States Citizenship and Immigration Services [CIS] 
appropriation funds expenses necessary for the administration 
of laws and the provision of services related to people seeking 
to enter, reside, work, and naturalize in the United States. In 
addition to directly appropriated resources, fee collections 
are available for the operations of CIS.
    Immigration Examinations Fees.--CIS collects fees from 
persons applying for immigration benefits to support the 
adjudication of applications, as authorized by the Immigration 
and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1356).
    H1-B and L Fraud Prevention and Detection Fees.--CIS 
collects fees from petitioners seeking a beneficiary's initial 
grant of H1-B or L nonimmigrant classification or those 
petitioners seeking to change a beneficiary's employer within 
those classifications (Public Law 108-447).
    H1-B Nonimmigrant Petitioner Fees.--CIS collects fees from 
petitioners using the H1-B program (Public Law 108-447).

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends total resources of $1,854,000,000, 
including direct appropriations of $80,000,000, and estimated 
fee collections of $1,774,000,000.
    The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendations as compared to the fiscal year 2005 and budget

\1\ Current fee estimates.

    The Committee recommends $80,000,000 for backlog reduction 
activities of CIS for fiscal year 2006, as requested in the 
budget. Included in this amount is $70,000,000 for contracting 
services and $10,000,000 for related activities.
    Immigration Examinations Fees.--The Committee understands 
the estimated level of $1,730,000,000 in spending from the 
Immigration Examinations Fee includes $20,000,000 collected 
from premium processing fees to continue efforts to reduce the 
backlog of applications. CIS is expected to provide updates to 
the Committee regarding the progress being made in meeting the 
targets of its 5-year backlog reduction plan.
    Backup Card Production Facility.--The Committee is aware of 
the need for a fully redundant backup site for the existing CIS 
card production facility. Given the Department's critical need 
for production of a variety of secure credentials, such 
redundancy will ensure no disruption in future production of 
credentials. The Committee directs the submission of a report 
on the need for such a facility, including cost requirements, 
by February 18, 2006.
    The Committee is aware of the additional cost burdens 
placed on the CIS budget for employees traveling to remote 
areas in Alaska and Hawaii. The Committee directs the 
Department to take this into consideration when allocating 
travel funds to these States.
    The Committee directs CIS to submit a report, by February 
18, 2006, on the costs and need to establish a subdistrict 
office in Montgomery County, Maryland.

estimated fee collections, summarizes the Committee's

                Federal Law Enforcement Training Center


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2005 \1\................................    $180,008,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     183,362,000
House allowance.........................................     194,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     194,000,000

\1\ Includes $2,568,000 supplemental appropriation pursuant to Public 
Law 109-13.

    The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center [FLETC] 
Salaries and Expenses appropriation provides funds for basic 
and some advanced training to Federal law enforcement personnel 
from more than 76 agencies. This account also allows for 
research of new training methodologies and provides for 
training to certain State, local, and foreign law enforcement 
personnel on a space-available basis.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $194,000,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center [FLETC] 
for fiscal year 2006. The Committee recommendation includes a 
decrease of $700,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level in 
management and technology efficiencies and an increase from the 
fiscal year 2005 level of $3,922,000 in annualization and 
inflationary adjustments, both as requested in the budget. The 
Committee provides an additional $10,638,000 from the budget 
request to fund instructors, staff, and tuition for training 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs 
Enforcement personnel. The Committee includes $2,700,000, as 
proposed in the budget, for simulation training technology.
    The Committee includes language in the bill requiring the 
Director of FLETC to ensure that all training centers are 
operated at the highest capacity feasible throughout the fiscal 
year. The Committee also expects the Director to maintain 
training at or near capacity before entering into new leases 
with private contractors or establishing new partner 
organizations. The Committee is concerned the Department is not 
fully utilizing the Cheltenham, Maryland, FLETC facility. 
Student utilization of the facility's indoor firing ranges is 
below 20 percent. The Committee directs the Department to 
provide to the Committee, no later than February 18, 2006, a 
report making recommendations on how it intends to reduce 
firearms and other training costs to increase its utilization 
of the facility.
    The Committee encourages FLETC to continue and expand 
existing institutional partnerships prior to initiating new 
partnerships to assist in meeting State, local, and other 
training needs.
    The Committee also directs FLETC to continue the Federal 
law enforcement training accreditation process. In addition, 
the Committee includes bill language, as requested in the 
budget, to provide FLETC statutory authority to impose 
pecuniary liability on employees for losses of government 
property.

     ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION, IMPROVEMENTS, AND RELATED EXPENSES

House allowance.........................................      64,743,000
Committee recommendation................................      88,358,000

\1\ Includes $1,882,000 supplemental appropriation pursuant to Public 
Law 109-13.

    This account provides for the acquisition and related costs 
for expansion and maintenance of facilities of the Federal Law 
Enforcement Training Center [FLETC]. This includes construction 
and maintenance of facilities and environmental compliance. 
Construction and maintenance provides funding for buildings at 
four locations (Glynco, Georgia; Artesia, New Mexico; 
Cheltenham, Maryland; and Charleston, South Carolina). The 
environmental compliance funds ensure compliance with 
Environmental Protection Agency and State environmental laws 
and regulations.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends $88,358,000 for acquisition, 
construction, improvements, and related expenses for expansion 
and maintenance of facilities of FLETC. The Committee provides 
an additional $47,722,000 over the budget request for 
facilities to train additional U.S. Custons and Border 
Protection and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement personnel.
    The Committee notes that an updated facilities Master Plan 
requested in fiscal year 2004 has not been submitted to the 
Committee. The Committee directs the Department to submit this 
plan as soon as possible.

    This account funds personnel, overhead, and other expenses 
in support of Information Analysis and Infrastructure 
Protection [IAIP], including the Office of the Under Secretary 
for Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection.

                       COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS

    The Committee recommends total appropriations of 
$168,769,000 for the Management and Administration account, 
which is $36,705,000 more than the fiscal year 2005 enacted 
level. The following table summarizes the Committee's 
recommendation as compared to the fiscal year 2005 and budget 
request levels:

      Total, Management and Administration................           132,064           204,005           168,769
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Of the amount provided, $6,878,000 is for the Office of the 
Under Secretary and $161,891,000 is provided for the salaries 
and expenses for IAIP activities. The Committee's 
recommendation does not include $19,400,000 proposed in the 
budget for the Homeland Secure Data Network. Funding for this 
system is consolidated and included in the Committee's 
recommended appropriations level for the Office of the Chief 
Information Officer. Additionally, the Committee has denied, 
without prejudice, the Department's request for program 
increases beyond those relating to pay and non-pay inflationary 
costs, as well as a reduction of $461,000 for realized 
efficiencies proposed in the budget.
    Staffing Levels.--The Committee denies the funding increase 
requested in the budget for 73 additional full-time equivalents 
[FTEs] and includes a base reduction due to IAIP's inability to 
hire staff. However, the Committee provides $38,000,000, as 
requested in the budget, for facilities alterations to house 
existing IAIP staff. IAIP lapsed balances of approximately 
$140,000,000 at the end of fiscal year 2004; current obligation 
rates for fiscal year 2005 will likely lead to a sizeable 
lapsed balance at the end of the current fiscal year 2005. Most 
recently, IAIP fell short of its January 2005 hiring target, 
and over the last year, DHS has relied repeatedly on IAIP's 
unobligated balances to offset unfunded needs for other DHS 
organizations. Despite the reduced funding level related to new 
personnel, the Committee encourages IAIP and the Department to 
submit a reprogramming for IAIP personnel should IAIP meet its 
staffing levels, particularly for tactics and methods research 
analysts.
    Currently, it is unclear if the staffing levels envisioned 
in the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (6 U.S.C. 121 et seq.) are 
still needed at such robust levels in light of the enactment of 
the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 
(Public Law 108-458), and the creation of other intelligence 
centers serving a similar role, e.g., the National 
Counterterrorism Center and the Terrorist Screening Center. The 
Committee directs IAIP and the Department to undertake a review 
of IAIP's resource requirements based on a comparative review 
of IAIP's intelligence responsibilities, as defined in the 
Homeland Security Act of 2002, with those following the passage 
of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 
2004. The findings of this review shall be submitted to the 
Committee by February 18, 2006.

    Critical Infrastructure Outreach and Partnerships.--The 
Committee recommends $126,592,000 for critical infrastructure 
outreach and partnerships. The Committee continues the fiscal 
year 2005 funding level of $35,000,000 and provides a 
$20,000,000 increase for fiscal year 2006 for the National 
Center for Critical Information Processing and Storage 
[NCCIPS]. The Center is to collect, validate, horizontally-
integrate, synchronize, process, and securely share critical 
information under the direction of the Department's Chief 
Information Officer. Within 60 days of enactment of this Act, 
the Committee expects IAIP to report to the Committee on the 
progress of further developing NCCIPS.
    Critical Infrastructure Identification and Evaluation.--The 
Committee recommends $59,903,000 for critical infrastructure 
identification and evaluation. Included in the Committee's 
recommendation is continued funding of $20,000,000 for the 
National Asset Database to collect and catalogue the Nation's 
critical infrastructure and key assets. The Committee believes 
it is imperative to address the issue of the prioritization of 
the criticality and vulnerability of the Nation's 
infrastructure.
    The Government Accountability Office [GAO] recently 
reported there are 15,000 facilities that produce, use, or 
store, more than the threshold amounts of chemicals the 
Environmental Protection Agency has estimated pose the greatest 
threat risk to human health and the environment. Only 1,100 of 
those 15,000 facilities are known to have developed measures to 
improve security. Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7, 
``Critical Infrastructure Identification, Prioritization, and 
Protection'', December 2003, directs the Secretary of Homeland 
Security to coordinate protection activities for the chemical 
sector. Yet, to date, little has been done by the Department to 
secure the chemical infrastructure sector. Therefore, the 
Committee directs the Department to begin vulnerability 
assessments of the highest risk chemical facilities. Priority 
should be given to facilities that, if attacked, pose the 
greatest threat to human life and the economy. IAIP shall also 
give preference to those facilities listed on the Maritime 
Critical Infrastructure/Key Assets List. The results of any 
assessments conducted should be used by the Secretary in 
developing a protection strategy for the chemical sector, 
including clear, measurable benchmarks for improving security 
at chemical facilities.
    National Infrastructure Simulation and Analysis Center.--
The Committee recommends $21,000,000, an increase of $1,000,000 
from the fiscal year 2005 level, to continue support for the 
National Infrastructure Simulation and Analysis Center [NISAC], 
Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico. The Committee expects 
Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories to continue to 
develop NISAC and to be the lead entities in securing the 
Nation's critical infrastructure. The Committee expects 
construction of the NISAC facility at Kirtland Air Force Base 
to be initiated within 6 months of the date of the filing of 
this report.
    Protective Actions.--The Committee recommends $91,399,000 
for protective actions. This amount includes a reduction of 
$53,000,000 for transfer of buffer zone protection grants to

    The Committee is cognizant of security risks associated 
with the industrial use of energy-related commodities, such as 
pipelines, transportation of nuclear spent fuel, as well as the 
security of nuclear power plants. The Committee encourages the 
Department to continue its efforts in this area.
    Within the funds provided for protective actions, the 
Committee expects IAIP to continue to carry out buffer zone, 
site security, and protective measures in partnership with 
State, local and private sector owners and operators. The 
Committee also expects IAIP to continue to provide policy, 
recipient selection, and oversight for implementation of monies 
awarded by SLGCP through the Buffer Zone Protection Grant 
program.
    Biosurveillance.--The Committee recommends $18,145,000, an 
increase of $6,998,000 from the budget request level, to 
augment biosurveillance activities, including continuation of 
the National Biosurveillance Integration System and 
implementation of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 9, 
``Defense of United States Agriculture and Food.'' Funds 
provided for fiscal year 2006 are to be obligated in 
coordination with the Departments of Health and Human Services 
and Agriculture in an effort to maximize effort and avoid 
duplication.
    Cyber Security.--The Committee recommends $73,349,000 for 
cyber security program activities carried out by the National

\1\ President's budget requests consolidating the research and development budgets of Transportation Security
  Administration, $99,547,000; U.S. Customs and Border Protection, $349,000; Information Analysis and
  Infrastructure Protection, $1,000; and Coast Guard, $17,000,000.

    Biological Countermeasures.--The Committee provides 
$384,300,000 for the deployment of effective measures to deter, 
detect, and mitigate acts of biological terrorism against the 
United States.
    Within the funds made available, the Committee provides an 
increase of $10,000,000 from the budget request for the 
integrated biosurveillance initiative. This amount includes 
funding to increase the number of sample collectors in the 
highest threat cities as well as $23,000,000 for the continued 
development of the National Bio and Agrodefense Facility, as 
requested in the budget. The Committee is aware of the threat 
of an aerosolized biological attack and encourages S&T; to 
continue work researching airborne weapons and related 
countermeasures.
    The Committee remains concerned about the detection of and 
response to biopathogens and encourages the Department to 
continue its coordinated response efforts to such threats. The 
Committee understands there are ongoing research efforts across 
the country and encourages the Department to establish a method 
for the collection and categorization of scientific information 
regarding biological threats in an effort to coordinate work 
with the Department and the research and development community.
    The Committee is also aware of the potential impact of 
zoonotic diseases, agricultural terrorism, and animal loss and 
its potential to impact the Nation's agricultural system, food 
supply, and economy. Therefore, the Committee encourages the 
Department to continue its research and cooperative efforts 
relating to agroterrorism and animal-based bioterrorism within 
and outside of the Federal Government in cooperation with the 
United States Department of Agriculture and other Federal 
agencies.
    The Committee encourages the Department to explore 
biosecurity research on emerging infectious diseases, such as 
SARS, avian flu, smallpox, and the Ebola virus.
    Chemical Countermeasures.--The Committee provides 
$100,000,000 for chemical countermeasures, an increase of 
$47,000,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level.
    The Committee has included, as requested in the President's 
budget, $20,000,000 for research and development of low-
volatility agents which are particularly difficult to detect.
    The Committee is aware of S&T;'s work to integrate chemical, 
biological, nuclear, radiological, and explosives [CBRNE] 
countermeasures detection devices. Integration of systems into 
a national network merits attention from the Department and 
should be examined as a means to support real-time detection, 
identification, and assessment of CBRNE threats, if determined 
necessary.
    Radiological and Nuclear Countermeasures.--The Committee 
provides $226,000,000 to rapidly develop and deploy 
radiological and nuclear detectors and systems and to 
incorporate the latest advances in technologies for use in 
operational environments.
    Included in this amount is $125,000,000, requested under 
the U.S. Customs and Border Protection [CBP] ``Salaries and 
expenses'' account, for the testing, development, and 
deployment of radiation portal monitors at our Nation's ports-
of-entry. The bill includes language making this amount 
available until expended solely for this purpose. The Committee 
believes new technologies are best developed and tested by the 
research and development arm of the Department, working in 
cooperation with the research and development community.
    The Committee directs the Department, in conjunction with 
the U.S. Department of Energy, to provide a report by February 
18, 2006, on how both Departments are collaborating on their 
various radiation technology efforts, the degree of 
coordination between the megaport initiative and the Container 
Security Initiative, the types of technology (both radiation 
detection and other non-intrusive inspection technology) being 
deployed at specific locations, and the extent to which next 
generation technology is explored and developed for future use.
    The Committee is aware of recent developments in the area 
of high-purity germanium radio-isotope identifiers, as well as 
neutron and gamma ray detectors, as possible improved detection 
devices. The Committee encourages S&T; to continue its work in 
this critical area in cooperation with Federal, State, and 
local officials, and to utilize the expertise of the national 
laboratories, as appropriate. In addition, the Committee 
encourages S&T; to continue its work in the areas of 
radiological dispersion devices and ``dirty bombs''.
    Domestic Nuclear Detection Office.--The Committee provides 
$127,314,000 for the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office [DNDO]. 
Of these funds, $15,000,000 is made available for establishing, 
staffing, and equipping the office. The remaining $112,314,000 
is available for obligation once the Secretary submits, for 
advance approval by the Committees on Appropriations, a 
staffing plan, organizational chart, articulated mission 
statement; and a multi-year plan, including projected costs by 
fiscal year and full-time equivalents, including the ``global 
systems architecture'', reviewed by the Government 
Accountability Office. In addition, the plan must also include 
a clear definition of the division of statutory 
responsibilities by all Federal agencies involved and how the 
establishment of DNDO changes any current roles, 
responsibilities, and functions of each involved Federal 
partner. Further, given the importance the administration 
places on this office, its activities should be carried out by 
Federal employees, not by contractors. The Committee strongly 
agrees with the importance of improving nuclear detection 
capabilities and coordination, but is troubled by the manner in 
which this initiative has been handled.
    High Explosives Countermeasures.--The Committee provides 
$33,862,000, an increase of $19,162,000 from the budget 
request, for high explosives countermeasures.
    Based on findings from a recent study conducted by S&T; on 
aviation security, increasing inspections of air cargo on both 
commercial aircraft and all-cargo aircraft could be 
accomplished through alternative configuration designs and 
concepts. The Committee provides an additional $10,000,000 for 
S&T; to initiate pilot programs at selected airports with the 
goal of more effectively and efficiently screening air cargo at 
these airports. These pilots should be based on the alternative 
configuration designs and concepts discussed in the report. The 
selection of airports for these pilot programs is to be made by 
S&T; in consultation with the Transportation Security 
Administration [TSA]. One of the pilots is to be conducted at a 
large airport that receives a high volume of cargo from 
international flights. Plans for the pilot programs should be 
presented to the Committee by December 15, 2005. S&T; is 
directed to report to the Committee on each pilot 2 months 
after the pilot's completion, including the operational 
feasibility and costs of deploying the concepts tested on a 
permanent basis.
    The Committee is concerned with the reduction in funding 
proposed by the Department for air cargo research and 
development [R&D;], when no information regarding a breakthrough 
technology has been brought to the Committee's attention. The 
Committee directs the Under Secretary for S&T;, in coordination 
with the Administrator of the TSA, to provide a report on 
progress made in the development or acquisition of technologies 
that will enable TSA to increase the amount of air cargo that 
is screened. The report is to be submitted to the Committee no 
later than February 18, 2006.
    Additional funding for air cargo security is provided to 
TSA in the ``Aviation Direction and Enforcement'' Account.
    Threat and Vulnerability, Testing and Assessment.--The 
Committee provides $40,000,000 to evaluate threat vulnerability 
and perform testing and risk assessments, as requested in the 
budget.
    Conventional Missions in Support of the Department of 
Homeland Security.--The Committee provides $74,650,000, an 
increase of $20,000,000 from the fiscal year 2005 level for 
research, development and related activities to support 
conventional missions of the Department. This amount does not 
include continued funding of $10,000,000 for the container 
security initiative funded for fiscal year 2005. The Committee 
provides an increase of $30,000,000 for Emergency Preparedness 
and Response/State and Locals for the purpose of piloting a 
regional research, development, test and evaluation, and 
technical assistance program, along with other activities as 
appropriate, to provide enduring and focused technical and 
analytic support for State, local, and private sector entities 
sharing common regional homeland security issues. The 
Department is expected to make use of its access to National 
laboratories for this purpose, along with other elements of the 
region's technical and analytic infrastructure.
    The Committee expects S&T; to continue to conduct explosive 
detection research within the amount provided and to accelerate 
research and development of next generation explosive detection 
systems.
    In Public Law 108-334, Congress provided additional 
resources for development of an air-to-ground communications 
capability for the Federal Air Marshals. The Committee requests 
a status report on efforts achieved to date to be submitted to 
the Committee no later than February 18, 2006.
    Rapid Prototyping.--The Committee recommends $20,900,000, 
as requested in the budget, for rapid prototyping activities.
    Standards.--The Committee provides $35,500,000, as 
requested in the budget, for development of consistent and 
verifiable standards in terms of basic functionality and 
usefulness of homeland security systems for the Federal, State, 
and local first responder.
    The Committee encourages S&T; to continue coordinating with 
the National Institute of Standards and Technology to develop 
voluntary consensus standards for search and rescue robotics. 
The Committee is concerned with the slow progress being made to 
develop standards and encourages continued consultation with 
broad industry, academic, and international experts in the 
field. The Committee also notes no funding is currently 
obligated for any advanced research projects for robotics and 
encourages S&T; to investigate projects in platform design, 
sensor technology, and long-endurance power systems.
    Emerging Threats.--The Committee provides $5,276,000 to 
develop the capability to use innovative and crosscutting 
approaches for emerging threats. S&T; is encouraged to pursue 
technologies for detecting ground tunnels along the Nation's 
borders for smuggling of narcotics, humans, and other threats.
    Critical Infrastructure Protection.--The Committee provides 
$13,800,000 to significantly improve the capabilities of the 
Nation to physically protect its critical infrastructure and 
key assets and to develop design concepts for advanced 
infrastructure systems that are inherently more robust and 
resilient, self defending, and self correcting. The Committee 
recommendation does not include $12,000,000 to support existing 
work in research and development and application of technology 
for community-based critical infrastructure protection efforts 
funded in fiscal year 2005.
    University Programs/Homeland Security Fellowship 
Programs.--The Committee provides $63,600,000, as requested in 
the budget, to fund existing and future Homeland Security 
Centers of excellence and to continue the university fellows 
program. The Committee encourages the Department to consider 
all colleges and universities that meet the requirements of 6 
U.S.C. 188 in the selection of university-based centers, 
including historically black colleges and universities, tribal 
colleges, Hispanic-serving institutions, Native Hawaiian-
serving institutions, and Alaskan Native-serving institutions.
    Counter Man-Portable Air Defense Systems [MANPADS].--The 
Committee provides $110,000,000, as requested in the budget, 
for activities to demonstrate the viability, economic costs, 
and effectiveness of adapting military technology to protect 
commercial aircraft against the threat of MANPADS.
    The Committee expects the counter-MANPADS Special Program 
Office to continue coordination with the Department of Defense, 
TSA, Department of State, Department of Treasury, and the 
Federal Aviation Administration to support DHS' efforts to 
adapt existing military technology for use in commercial 
aviation.
    SAFETY Act.--The Committee provides $5,600,000 for the 
continued development of a comprehensive program to solicit, 
receive, track, evaluate, and maintain records associated with 
the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies 
[SAFETY] Act technology applications.
    Cyber Security.--The Committee provides $16,700,000 for 
research and development of the most appropriate technologies 
for next generation cyber threat characterization, cyber threat 
detection, and origination.
    Office of Interoperability and Compatability.--The 
Committee provides $15,000,000 to establish this new office, 
$5,500,000 less than the budget request. The lack of true 
interoperability within public safety communications remains a 
critical stumbling block to effective response in multi-
discipline, multi-jurisdictional emergencies. The Office of 
Interoperability and Compatibility [OIC] is intended to address 
the issues of non-interoperable and incompatible equipment and 
a lack of standardized procedures for their operation, for 
example, during emergency responses to a terrorist attack. The 
Committee strongly supports the Departments efforts to reduce 
duplication in programs and spending relating to 
interoperability.
    The Committee believes the OIC should work with the 
National Institute of Standards and Technology and the U.S. 
Department of Justice to require that all grant dollar for 
interoperable communication be used for Project 25 compliant 
equipment that has meet the requirements of a conformity 
assessment program.
    Research and Development Consolidation.--The Committee 
recommends $99,897,000 to consolidate all research and 
development funding within S&T;, as proposed in the budget, with 
the exception of research and development activities of the 
U.S. Coast Guard. This includes the consolidation of all 
funding for assets related to the research, development, test 
and evaluation programs of the Transportation Security 
Administration, $99,547,000; U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection, $349,000; and Information Analysis and 
Infrastructure Protection, $1,000. The consolidation will bring 
the scientific and engineering personnel and resources under a 
single accountable authority, minimize possible redundancy and 
duplication, and optimize return on investment. Corresponding 
funding for personnel related to these programs of $10,599,000 
is included in the ``management and administration'' account, 
as proposed in the budget.

                      TITLE V--GENERAL PROVISIONS

    Section 501. The Committee includes a provision limiting 
the expenditure of funds to the current fiscal year unless 
expressly provided otherwise in the Act.
    Section 502. The Committee includes a provision prohibiting 
the use of appropriated funds from being used to make payments 
to the Working Capital Fund, except for certain activities and 
amounts, based on direct usage of each service, unless approved 
by the Committees on Appropriations. The Committee would like 
to clarify it will not approve Working Capital Fund billings, 
even if based on direct usage, to fund programs, projects, or 
activities for which appropriations were proposed in the 
President's budget and not approved by the Congress, to 
initiate new programs or activities, or to augment the funds or 
personnel for any program, project, or activity above the 
levels appropriated by this Act.
    Section 503. The Committee includes a provision providing 
authority to reprogram appropriations within an account and to 
transfer not to exceed 5 percent of appropriations between 
accounts with 15-day advance notification of the Committees on 
Appropriations.
    The Committee expects the Department to submit 
reprogramming requests on a timely basis, and to provide 
complete explanations of the reallocations proposed, including 
detailed justifications of the increases and offsets, and any 
specific impact the proposed changes will have on current and 
future-year appropriations requirements. Each request submitted 
to the Committee should include a detailed table showing the 
proposed revisions at the account, program, project, and 
activity level to the funding and staffing (full-time 
equivalent position) levels, as compared to program, project, 
and activity levels reflected in the table in the statement of 
managers accompanying the conference report on the fiscal year 
2006 appropriations Act as well as the impact on appropriations 
requirements for each future fiscal year.
    The Committee expects the Department to manage its programs 
and activities within the levels appropriated. The Committee is 
concerned with the number of reprogramming proposals submitted 
for consideration by the Department and reminds the Department 
that reprogramming or transfer requests should be submitted 
only in the case of an unforeseeable emergency, or situation 
that could not have been predicted when formulating the budget 
request for the current fiscal year. Further, the Committee 
notes when the Department submits a reprogramming or transfer 
request to the Committees on Appropriations and does not 
receive identical responses from the House and Senate, it is 
the responsibility of the Department to reconcile the House and 
Senate differences before proceeding and, if reconciliation is 
not possible, to consider the reprogramming or transfer request 
unapproved.
    The Department is not to propose a reprogramming or 
transfer of funds after June 30th unless there are exceptional 
or emergency circumstances.
    Section 504. The Committee includes a provision making not 
to exceed 50 percent of unobligated balances remaining at the 
end of fiscal year 2005 of appropriations for salaries and 
expenses available through fiscal year 2006 in the account and 
for the purpose for which the funds were provided. The 
obligation of such funds are subject to the statutory 
requirements for the reprogramming of funds.
    Section 505. The Committee includes a provision providing 
that funds made available by the Act for intelligence 
activities are deemed to be specifically authorized until the 
enactment of an Act authorizing intelligence activities for 
fiscal year 2006.
    Section 506. The Committee includes a provision requiring 
notification of the Committees on Appropriations at least three 
business days in advance of the Department announcement of any 
grant allocation, discretionary grant award, letter of intent, 
or contract totaling over $1,000,000.
    Section 507. The Committee includes a provision that, with 
certain specific exceptions, no agency shall purchase, 
construct, or lease additional facilities for the purpose of 
conducting Federal law enforcement training without the advance 
approval of the Committees on Appropriations.
    Section 508. The Committee includes a provision requiring 
the Director of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center to 
ensure that all training facilities are operated at the highest 
capacity throughout the fiscal year.
    Section 509. The Committee includes a provision prohibiting 
the use of funds for any construction, repair, alteration, or 
acquisition project for which a prospectus, if required by the 
Public Buildings Act of 1959, has not been approved.
    Section 510. The Committee includes a provision prohibiting 
the use of funds in contravention of the Buy American Act.
    Section 511. The Committee includes a provision regarding 
the inspection of air cargo.
    Section 512. The Committee includes a provision allowing 
the Transportation Security Administration to impose a 
reasonable charge for the lease of real and personal property 
to its employees.
    Section 513. The Committee includes a provision that the 
acquisition management system of the Transportation Security 
Administration shall apply to the acquisition of services, as 
well as equipment, supplies, and materials.
    Section 514. The Committee includes a provision to prohibit 
the obligation of funds for the Secure Flight program, except 
on a test basis, until the requirements of Section 522 of 
Public law 108-334 have been met and the Government 
Accountability Office [GAO] has reviewed and made certain 
certifications. The Committee directs GAO to continue to 
evaluate DHS and TSA actions to meet the ten elements listed in 
Section 522 of Public Law 108-334 and to report to the 
Committee, either incrementally as DHS meets additional 
elements, or when all elements have been met by DHS. The 
provision also prohibits the obligation of funds for a 
commercial database that is obtained from or remains under the 
control of a non-Federal entity.
    Section 515. The Committee includes a provision prohibiting 
the use of funds made available by the Act to amend the oath of 
allegiance required by section 337 of the Immigration and 
Nationality Act.
    Section 516. The Committee includes a provision regarding 
competitive sourcing of certain U.S. Citizenship and 
Immigration Services positions.
    Section 517. The Committee includes a provision prohibiting 
appropriations for United States Secret Service protection of 
the head of a Federal agency other than the Secretary of 
Homeland Security unless fully reimbursed.
    Section 518. The Committee includes a provision naming the 
Department processing and data storage facilities the 
``National Center for Critical Information Processing and 
Storage''.

                     PROGRAM, PROJECT, AND ACTIVITY

    The following information provides the definition of the 
term ``program, project, and activity'' for the directorates, 
bureaus, agencies, and other organizations of the Department of 
Homeland Security under the jurisdiction of the Homeland 
Security Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations. The 
term ``program, project, and activity'' shall include the most 
specific level of budget items identified in the Department of 
Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2006, the House and 
Senate Committee reports, and the conference report and 
accompanying joint explanatory statement of the managers of the 
committee of conference.
    If a percentage reduction is necessary, in implementing 
that reduction, directorates, bureaus, agencies, and other 
organizations of the Department of Homeland Security shall 
apply any percentage reduction required for fiscal year 2006 to 
all items specified in the justifications submitted to the 
Committees on Appropriations of the House and Senate in support 
of the fiscal year 2006 budget estimates, as amended, for such 
organizations and directorates, as modified by congressional 
action.
