    The purpose of this bill is to provide appropriations for 
the fiscal year 2006 beginning October 1, 2005, and ending 
September 30, 2006, for energy and water development, and for 
other related purposes. It supplies funds for water resources 
development programs and related activities of the Department 
of the Army, Civil Functions--U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' 
Civil Works Program in title I; for the Department of the 
Interior's Bureau of Reclamation in title II; for the 
Department of Energy's energy research activities, including 
environmental restoration and waste management, and atomic 
energy defense activities of the National Nuclear Security 
Administration in title III; and for related independent 
agencies and commissions, including the Appalachian Regional 
Commission, Delta Regional Authority, Denali Commission, and 
the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in title IV.

                SUMMARY OF ESTIMATES AND RECOMMENDATIONS

    The fiscal year 2006 budget estimates for the bill total 
$31,245,000,000 in new budget (obligational) authority. The 
recommendation of the Committee totals $31,245,000,000. This is 
$1,498,272,000 above the budget estimates and $1,412,720,000 
over the enacted appropriation for the current fiscal year.

                         Subcommittee Hearings

    The Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water held 
four sessions in connection with the fiscal year 2006 
appropriation bill. Witnesses included officials and 
representatives of the Federal agencies under the 
subcommittee's jurisdiction.
    The subcommittee received numerous statements and letters 
from Members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, 
Governors, State and local officials and representatives, and 
hundreds of private citizens of all walks of life throughout 
the United States. Information, both for and against many 
items, was presented to the subcommittee. The recommendations 
for fiscal year 2006 therefore, have been developed after 
careful consideration of available data.

                         Votes in the Committee

    By a vote of 28 to 0 the Committee on June 16, 2005, 
recommended that the bill, as amended, be reported to the 
Senate.

                 TITLE I--DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE--CIVIL

                         DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY

                       Corps of Engineers--Civil

                              INTRODUCTION

    In 1802, responding to the need for engineering talent to 
support both the defense of the young United States and its 
civilian infrastructure, President Thomas Jefferson proposed a 
body of engineers within the U.S. Army, readily available to 
tackle assignments of national importance. To train them, he 
opened the first engineering school in the United States--the 
U.S. Military Academy at West Point, NY.
    In the two centuries since, the expertise the U.S. Army 
Corps of Engineers has gained, especially in water resources, 
has led administrations and Congress to assign it missions in 
navigation, flood control, shore protection, hydropower, water 
supply, recreation, and, most recently, environmental 
stewardship, cleanup and restoration work. The public has also 
relied on the Corps to respond rapidly with engineering 
services when disaster strikes.
    Still, the question has often arisen why the Army of today 
carries out a Civil Works mission that appears, at first 
glance, far removed from its primary mission of deterring and 
winning wars. In fact, in the past 80 years there have been at 
least eight proposals to transfer the Civil Works mission to 
other Government agencies. All have been rejected after more 
careful consideration.
    The Army has traditionally relied on its Civil Works 
mission to train combat engineers, and to complement and 
augment its warfighting competencies, providing the capability 
to respond to situations across the spectrum of conflict. 
Specifically, Civil Works provides the Army:
  --A force in being of about 24,000 engineers and other 
        professionals, familiar with the Army culture and 
        responsive to the chain of command. The program 
        provides attractive careers and professional challenges 
        to maintain this force. This is a no cost asset to the 
        Army until needed for warfighting.
  --Established relationships with Federal, State and local 
        officials, and with the Nation's engineering and 
        construction industries--a force multiplier of hundreds 
        of thousands. ``On the shelf'' contracts are available 
        for emergencies.
  --Deployability.--Corps members engaged in Civil Works 
        activities are available where needed. Today scores of 
        Civil Works personnel are deployed in Afghanistan and 
        Iraq. Specialists in such activities as real estate 
        were sent before the main force to secure needed 
        facilities. Meanwhile, Corps ``tele-engineering'' 
        systems link combat commanders to Corps labs and other 
        stateside experts for immediate on-the-ground feedback.
  --Support to Combat Forces.--Corps of Engineers knowledge of 
        beach dynamics helps determine sites for landings over 
        the shore, while expertise in soil mechanics determines 
        the best routes for armored vehicles with technologies 
        developed in the Civil Works program. Corps' work on 
        winter navigation helps the Army cross frozen rivers--
        and was a major factor in its crossing of the Sava 
        River in Bosnia. Its experience with roller compacted 
        concrete for dams was used for runways and hardstands. 
        Civil Works experience with harbors allows the Army to 
        build ports to support U.S. forces in places such as 
        Somalia where facilities are primitive to non-existent.
  --Expertise in natural and cultural resources, water quality, 
        flood plain management or toxic waste control, helping 
        the Army comply with more than 70 Federal environmental 
        statutes, and a breadth of experience and workload in 
        dozens of specialized fields that would not otherwise 
        be possible.
  --A Power Projection Platform.--Nearly all military equipment 
        deployed overseas passes through ports maintained by 
        the Civil Works program. So do most Navy ships. Corps 
        flood control projects also play a role in force 
        projection by protecting key highway and rail links.
  --International Goodwill.--Army Engineers experienced in 
        Civil Works play a major role in infrastructure in 
        developing nations. They help to improve economic 
        conditions and strengthen democratic institutions in 
        these nations; allow the Army a presence in politically 
        sensitive areas; and foster good will through contact 
        between governments and armed forces. Today Corps 
        personnel are working in more than 90 nations around 
        the world. In most of these nations, no other U.S. 
        forces are present.
    Army management of the Nation's water resources, in turn, 
benefits the program and the Nation in a number of ways:
  --Responsiveness.--Corps members and contractors are 
        available to deploy, often within hours, wherever the 
        need arises. This was dramatically demonstrated in the 
        aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Civil 
        Works personnel were on the scene within hours. Corps 
        vessels operated a ferry service taking survivors to 
        New Jersey and bringing rescue workers into the city. 
        Corps personnel assisted with rescue and recovery 
        operations. Structural engineers evaluated which 
        buildings were safe for re-entry. The 249th Engineer 
        Battalion (Prime Power) provided the expertise 
        necessary to set up emergency generators that had New 
        York's financial district back in business the 
        following Monday. The Corps also developed the plan for 
        disposal of debris from ``Ground Zero'' and managed the 
        Staten Island disposal site so that 1.35 million tons 
        of material were safely disposed of months ahead of 
        schedule and $55,000,000 under budget.
  --A Bias For Action.--A unique mix of Army officers with a 
        ``can do'' attitude working alongside world class 
        engineering and scientific civilian expertise makes the 
        Corps arguably the most positive and proactive agency 
        in the Federal Government.
  --National Security Consideration in Planning for 
        Infrastructure.--The Corps recently completed security 
        assessments for more than 300 of its key projects. It 
        also led the establishment in March 2002 of The 
        Infrastructure Security Partnership [TISP], bringing 
        together government and private organizations 
        representing about 1.6 million engineers and other 
        professionals to focus on securing the infrastructure 
        necessary to maintain normal American life. Corps 
        ``hardening'' measures, meanwhile, were credited with 
        saving hundreds of lives in the 9/11 attack on the 
        Pentagon.
  --Impartiality in Recommendations for Projects, Permits, 
        Etc.--Administrations and Congresses rely on the Corps 
        to base investment recommendations on the best 
        engineering, economic and environmental science 
        available, not political considerations.
  --Concentration of Water Resources Expertise in One Agency.--
        The Corps, with the great majority of its civil works 
        personnel located throughout the 50 States rather than 
        in Washington, DC, is unique in the world in that it 
        provides a common arena for water resources issues in 
        the United States to be debated and solutions vetted. 
        Governments of other countries study the Corps as they 
        begin to understand the need for integrated solutions 
        and seek to build the capability to achieve them by 
        combining previously separate agency responsibilities. 
        The Corps provides synergy among various uses of water, 
        balance among uses and geographic areas, and the 
        ability to plan water resources for watersheds as a 
        whole instead of single projects for specific 
        locations. Water resource planners and the public are 
        increasingly coming to understand that water problems 
        cannot be considered in isolation--the solution to one 
        problem often generates others. Uses and protection of 
        water resources cannot be separated, but require an 
        integrated, watershed approach. Having different 
        agencies in charge of water resource uses would 
        guarantee conflicts among uses, while having all uses 
        under the auspices of one agency is a major step in 
        creating a balanced, holistic approach to the Nation's 
        water needs--a step that was taken 200 years ago.

                    FISCAL YEAR 2006 BUDGET OVERVIEW

    The fiscal year 2006 budget request for the Corps of 
Engineers is composed of $4,332,000,000 in new budgetary 
authority and $181,000,000 in offsetting collections from the 
Power Marketing Authorities for a total program of 
$4,513,000,000. The Committee is unable to take advantage of 
the offsetting collections due to budgetary scoring impacts and 
therefore rejects this proposal for the fourth year in a row.
    The Committee recommends a total of $5,298,000,000 for the 
Corps of Engineers, an increase of $612,452,000 from fiscal 
year 2005 enacted levels (adjusted for one-time emergency 
spending of $372,400,000). The Committee recommendation is 
$966,000,000 above the request. The Committee recommendation 
provides for a robust planning program as well as providing 
significant increases to the construction and operation and 
maintenance accounts. Unfortunately, even with this large 
increase the Committee recommendation falls short of what is 
actually needed to provide efficient levels of funding for all 
on-going work.
    The Corps' budget proposal is a departure from previous 
years. This budget is the first to be developed as a full 
business line program prioritization and then cross-walked to 
the traditional accounts summary. Projects compete in each of 
the three main mission areas (Flood Damage Reduction, 
Navigation and Environmental Restoration) and are classified as 
follows:
  --Coastal Navigation,
  --Inland Navigation,
  --Flood Damage reduction,
  --Storm Damage reduction,
  --Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration, and
  --Other (including all major rehabilitation and Hydropower).
    Categories 1-4 comprise 70 percent or more of the 
Construction, General Program; Category 5 is 25 percent or 
less; and Category 6 is 5 percent or more. Projects were ranked 
on two performance criteria--Remaining Benefits to Remaining 
Costs Ratio or effective use of resources to address 
significant ecological problems. Lower ranking projects are 
proposed for contract deferral, suspension or termination. The 
budget proposed another new shore protection policy, the fourth 
in 4 years. Additionally, the budget proposed repealing the 
current continuing contract language and replacing it with new 
multiple year contracting. Finally, the budget included a 
proposal that $200,000,000 of the construction funds should be 
contingent upon Congress accepting the administration's 
budgetary prioritization criteria.
    The Committee is disappointed that the administration has 
included another ``new'' beach policy. Beaches are the leading 
tourist destination in the United States. California beaches 
alone receive nearly 600 million tourist visits annually. This 
is more tourist visits than to all of the lands controlled by 
the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management 
combined. Beach tourists contribute $260,000,000,000 to the 
U.S. economy and $60,000,000,000 in Federal taxes. Last year 
Congress provided legislation that beach policies will not be 
changed except by congressional direction. Congress has 
repeatedly demonstrated that the current beach policy is 
satisfactory. The Committee has attempted to provide sufficient 
funding for a number of the most critical shore protection 
projects.
    The Committee has chosen to reject all of these budget 
proposals. The Committee believes that this is no way to run a 
robust national infrastructure program. The Corps needs to 
seriously reexamine its ``business line'' budget model. The 
Corps program has always been a ``big tent'' where all aspects 
of water resource development were jointly discussed and 
budgeted. The business line approach segregates these interests 
and promotes discord among various water resource interests. 
There is already evidence of some ``business lines'' attempting 
to find ways to take funding from ``business lines'' with 
smaller constituent bases. This lack of unity will further the 
downward spiral of recent budget proposals.
    The Committee believes that the budget proposal's blind 
emphasis on remaining benefits to remaining costs ratios to 
determine funding priorities is misplaced. The strict adherence 
to the metric of Remaining Benefit to Remaining Cost Ratio to 
the exclusion of all other possible metrics that could have 
been utilized such as widespread project net benefits, 
inclusion of system-wide values, acknowledgement of regional 
benefits, recognition of a wider set of benefits over a longer 
planning period than just 1 year, calculations using other 
interest rates that are more in accordance with the projects 
authorizations, as well as the GI metric of 3.0 RBRCR for the 
PED projects, is indeed narrow.
    Also, funding only the ``highest potential return'' studies 
to the detriment of many other studies that provide a future 
vision or address far-reaching problems while not yet showing 
any BCR data, can also be considered ``penny wise and pound 
foolish.'' These studies still add value and importance and 
have a place in the problem solving needs of the overall 
Nation's water community.
    While this process may have led to a very focused 
performance-based set of final projects to study, design and 
construct, the metrics used led to a very skewed set of results 
with a few strong regional winners and many losers. 
Consideration of a more encompassing set of factors including 
those mentioned above, as well as a number still under 
development, would have provided a more comprehensive set of 
projects, yet continuing to deliver needed, effective, national 
water benefits.
    These ratios provide a ``snapshot'' view of a project. They 
tell you nothing of the relative value of one project to 
another, projects in rural areas with fewer beneficiaries are 
penalized and no consideration is given to the workforce. 
Congress has repeatedly demonstrated that it desires to keep 
the structure of the Corps of Engineers as it is currently 
configured. Yet if the budget were enacted, there would be no 
way to maintain this workforce, due to how the ratios skewed 
the projects to certain areas of the country.
    The program proposed in the budget is very unbalanced among 
planning, construction and maintenance. The planning program is 
decimated. The proposed program slows down the number of 
projects reaching construction by limiting funding for new 
study phases. The planning program is vital to a healthy Corps 
of Engineers; without a steady supply of new studies, 
eventually there will be no new construction projects, and then 
the Corps would gradually become an operation and maintenance 
organization with no real national capabilities. There is no 
shortage of water resource needs in the country today, and the 
Corps needs to maintain a robust planning program to be able to 
continue to address these needs.
Continuing Contracts
    The Corps needs flexibility to manage their program. Unlike 
building a hospital or a barracks or a post office where the 
site is relatively contained, flood free, and accessible, water 
resource projects are constructed in physically challenging 
locations. By their nature, these projects involve large 
mobilization costs and great uncertainties. The Corps of 
Engineers has been tasked with providing hundreds of water 
infrastructure projects in challenging locations throughout the 
country. Historically, the Corps has done an outstanding job of 
managing these great water resource projects and has provided 
the water infrastructure that has greatly contributed to our 
economic security.
    One of the greatest tools that the Corps of Engineers has 
for managing its nationwide water resources infrastructure 
program is the ability to award multiyear continuing contracts. 
When an agency is managing, literally, hundreds of construction 
projects throughout the country, problems are inevitable. These 
can range from flood, to drought, to funding shortfalls, to 
unanticipated hazardous wastes encountered in the construction 
site, or discovery of unanticipated cultural resources. Any one 
of these items can bring a project to a temporary halt or slow 
construction. By the same token, projects can be accelerated 
due to mild winters or below average flows on a river allowing 
a longer construction season with more work to be done and more 
funds to be utilized.
    Water resources projects, because of the nature of the work 
involved, are funded on an incremental annual basis. As far 
back as 1922, the Congress recognized the need for flexibility 
in management and execution of the Civil Works program and 
provided the Army Corps of Engineers with legislation that 
allowed the use of continuing contracts for specifically 
authorized projects. In a 1977 decision, the Comptroller 
General confirmed that the authority found in the 1922 law 
constituted an exception to the Anti-deficiency Act. 
Accordingly, the Corps has had the discretion to use continuing 
contracts to execute any of its specifically authorized water 
resources projects since at least 1977.
    In the Water Resources Development Act of 1999 (33 U.S.C. 
Sec. 2331), the Congress enacted another provision of law 
relating to continuing contracts. This legislation requires the 
Corps to award a continuing contract for a water resources 
project for which initiation of construction has occurred, but 
for which sufficient funds are not available to complete the 
project. The statute defines initiation of construction as the 
date of the enactment of an appropriations act in which the 
project receives funds from either the Construction, General, 
Operation and Maintenance, General or Flood Control, 
Mississippi River and Tributaries lump sum appropriations. 
Since Congress rarely appropriates sufficient funds for each 
project, the practical effect of the statute is that it 
requires the use of continuing contracts for the majority of 
civil works water resource projects.
    Continuing contracts allow the Corps to award large 
construction elements of a project to take advantage of the 
economies of scale available to construction contractors. 
Allowing these large construction elements to be managed over 
several years without requiring contracts to be fully funded 
before construction begins affords the Corps the ability to 
more efficiently manage multiple construction contracts. 
Multiyear funding, and the ability to reprogram funds, are 
tools that have allowed the Corps to maximize scarce resources 
to try to do as much as possible with the resources available 
to them; they also left the Corps open to charges that it has 
put contractors in charge of managing its funds.
    The Congress has expressed its concerns in the past that 
Corps of Engineers construction projects may have used the 
continuing contracts clause and the ability to reprogram funds 
to award some construction contracts that may not have been 
fiscally prudent in light of current budget realities. However, 
many of these construction contracts were awarded when surplus 
funds were available allowing reprogramming of funds to make up 
for budget shortfalls. This process has resulted in most 
surplus funds being expended, leaving the Corps with very 
little flexibility to cover the financial obligations of the 
construction contracts. As a result, an increased number of 
reprogrammings are necessary to satisfy as many of the Corps' 
financial obligations as possible.
    In the Conference Report accompanying the fiscal year 2005 
Consolidated Appropriations Act (House Report 108-792), the 
Congress expressed its belief that the Corps had made great 
strides in resolving these financial issues by applying more 
stringent controls on financial obligations allowed on 
continuing contracts and allowed the Corps to continue to 
resolve the situation. The Congress also cautioned the Corps 
that it must regain control of all aspects of program execution 
and execute the program which Congress appropriates. The 
Committee believes that the Corps has made progress in 
tightening controls on the use of continuing contracts. For 
example, these types of contracts have traditionally been 
executed at a district level. However, the decision has been 
elevated to Corps headquarters on whether or not to award a 
continuing contract. The Committee sees this as an appropriate 
but temporary necessity and expects continuing contracts to 
remain a generally available contracting tool for program 
execution.
    The continuing contract clause has adequate controls to 
limit the future obligations of the Federal Government. The 
Committee expects the Corps to utilize these controls to limit 
Government exposure. The Committee expects the Corps to develop 
specific execution guidance to control and manage the 
implementation of continuing contracts, consistent with law and 
prudent fiscal policy, and to carry out the Civil Works program 
accordingly.
Reprogramming
    The Committee expects the Corps to execute the Civil Works 
program following congressional direction. This includes moving 
individual projects forward in accordance with the funds 
annually appropriated. However, the Committee realizes that 
many factors outside the Corps' control may dictate the 
progress of any given project or study. Therefore, the 
Committee believes that it is imperative to allow the Corps 
ample flexibility to manage the program and to utilize excess 
funds as they become available on a particular project to move 
the entire program forward. With this flexibility comes a 
responsibility to insure that appropriated funds are available 
for projects when necessary. The Committee expects the Corps to 
develop specific execution guidance to control and manage the 
reprogramming of funds, which is consistent with law and 
prudent fiscal policy, and to carry out the Civil Works program 
accordingly. As there were some ambiguities in the 
reprogramming guidance provided with the fiscal year 2005 
Omnibus Report, the Committee has elected to redraft that 
guidance and present it here.
    Reprogramming is also to be used in very benign, fiscally 
responsible ways. The Corps financial management system uses 
thousands of work item codes to supply funding for everything 
from purchasing a screwdriver to ordering a computer to buying 
a miter gate for a lock and dam. As the Government cannot fund 
purchases in arrears, adequate funding estimates must be 
supplied into these work items prior to purchases being made. 
Rarely are these estimates an exact match for these purchases. 
Often funding is left in these work items that must be cleaned 
up at the end of the fiscal year. The remaining funds from 
these accounts must be reprogrammed to other accounts in order 
to be used. These remaining funds can range from a few pennies 
to thousands of dollars. The same is true when a cost shared 
project is completed with a local sponsor. A final accounting 
must be made and all of the old work items must be cleaned out 
in order to dispose of leftover project funding.
Reprogramming Guidance
    A reprogramming action may not be used to eliminate or 
initiate a program, project or activity.
    General Investigations.--Reprogramming a cumulative total 
of up to 25 percent of the total General Investigations 
appropriation funding is permitted. Such reprogramming between 
studies and programs within the preceding limitation are 
permitted without approval of either House of Congress. 
However, the Chief of Engineers shall provide a quarterly 
report to both House and Senate Appropriations Committees of 
all reprogrammings for individual studies or programs with 
increases in excess of $250,000 but less than or equal to 
$500,000. Approval of both House and Senate Appropriations 
Committees is required for cumulative reprogramming increases 
greater than $500,000. Restoration of all savings and slippage 
shall not count toward the cumulative total. The Committee does 
not object to reprogramming up to $50,000 to any continuing 
study or program that did not receive an appropriation in the 
current year. All funds used to source reprogrammings described 
above should be surplus to current year needs for that effort. 
For the purpose of this section, the cumulative total is 
derived by summing the net increases of reprogrammings for only 
the gaining projects or programs.
    Construction, General.--Reprogramming a cumulative total of 
up to 15 percent of the total Construction, General 
appropriation funding is permitted. Such reprogramming between 
projects and programs within the preceding limitation are 
permitted without approval of either House of Congress. 
However, the Chief of Engineers shall provide a quarterly 
report to both House and Senate Appropriations Committees of 
all reprogrammings for individual projects or programs with 
increases in excess of $4,000,000 but less than or equal to 
$7,000,000. Approval of both House and Senate Appropriations 
Committees is required for cumulative reprogramming increases 
greater than $7,000,000. Restoration of all savings and 
slippage and prior year revocations shall not count toward the 
cumulative total. The Committee does not object to the 
restoration of prior year revocations or the additional 
reprogramming of up to $500,000 to any continuing project or 
program that did not receive an appropriation in the current 
year. All funds used to source reprogrammings described above 
should be surplus to current year needs for that effort. For 
the purpose of this section, the cumulative total is derived by 
summing the net increases of reprogrammings for only the 
gaining projects or programs.
    Operations and Maintenance.--Unlimited reprogramming 
authority is granted in order for the Corps to be able to 
respond to emergencies. The Chief of Engineers must notify the 
House and Senate Appropriations Committees as soon as 
practicable of these emergency situations. For all other 
situations, reprogramming a cumulative total of up to 50 
percent of the total Operations and Maintenance appropriation 
funding is permitted. Such reprogramming between projects and 
programs within the preceding limitation are permitted without 
approval of either House of Congress. However, the Chief of 
Engineers shall provide a quarterly report to both House and 
Senate Appropriations Committees of all reprogrammings for 
individual projects or programs with increases in excess of 
$5,000,000 but less than or equal to $10,000,000. Approval of 
both House and Senate Appropriations Committees is required for 
cumulative reprogramming increases greater than $10,000,000. 
All funds used to source reprogrammings described above should 
be surplus to current year needs for that effort. For the 
purpose of this section, the cumulative total is derived by 
summing the net increases of reprogrammings for only the 
gaining projects or programs.
    Mississippi River and Tributaries.--The Corps should follow 
the same reprogramming guidelines for the General 
Investigations, Construction, and Operation and Maintenance 
portions of the Mississippi River and Tributaries Account as 
listed above.
    Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program.--The Corps 
may reprogram up to 15 percent of the appropriated funding 
level between FUSRAP projects without Committee approval. 
Restoration of prior year reprogramming amounts shall not count 
towards the cumulative total.

                   EXECUTIVE DIRECTION AND MANAGEMENT

    The Committee is extremely disappointed in the general lack 
of leadership being exhibited by the Chief of Engineers, the 
Director of Civil Works and the Assistant Secretary of the Army 
(Civil Works) in execution of the Civil Works program. The 
Corps of Engineers has been provided clear guidance on program 
execution in a number of Acts of Congress over the years and is 
provided annual direction and guidance through the Energy and 
Water Appropriations Act. The ASA[CW] provides the Chief of 
Engineers advice about policy matters and is generally the 
political spokesperson for the administration's policies; 
however, the Chief of Engineers is responsible for carrying out 
the program. The Chief of Engineers receives his orders from 
the Army Chief of Staff and those orders flow through him to 
the Director of Civil Works and through the rest of the Civil 
Works hierarchy to carry out those orders. The Committee 
expects the Chief of Engineers to prepare management and 
execution plans in accordance with this guidance and to 
aggressively carry out those plans. The Committee has twice 
reminded the Chief of Engineers, in writing, of his obligations 
to execute the program for fiscal year 2005 contained in the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005 (Public Law 108-447). 
The Committee also directed that all guidance provided by the 
Congress should be adhered to in carrying out his 
responsibilities. It is a simple matter to determine the 
consensus judgments of the Congress as to how executive branch 
programs should be administered. All one must do is look at the 
law and the accompanying reports as enacted. Any other 
congressional guidance should be viewed as suggestive and 
weighed in context with guidance that the Congress provided. 
The Committee expects the Chief of Engineers regain control and 
leadership over the Corps of Engineers and the Civil Works 
program immediately.

Committee has provided $4,000,000 to continue levee 
rehabilitation work in Arkansas and Louisiana.
    Red River Emergency Bank Protection, AR and LA.--The 
Committee has provided $6,000,000 for bank stabilization along 
the Red River below Index, Arkansas.
    American River Watershed, CA.--The Committee has chosen not 
to combine the various, separately authorized, components of 
the project into a single line item as was proposed in the 
budget. The Committee believes that it is prudent to maintain 
visibility of the various project elements in the budget 
process. However, for purposes of reprogramming actions, the 
three elements should be treated as a single project when 
considering the reprogramming guidance provided in an earlier 
section of this report.
    American River Watershed (Folsom Dam Miniraise), CA.--The 
Committee has provided $12,000,000. Within the funds provided, 
$7,000,000 is for construction of the bridge.
    Kaweah River, CA.--The Committee has provided $4,800,000 to 
complete this project.
    Oakland Harbor, CA.--The Committee has provided $42,000,000 
to continue construction of this project. The reduction made to 
this project should not be viewed as any diminution of support 
for this project, rather an attempt to balance out the Corps of 
Engineers nationwide program among the various missions of the 
Corps.
    Santa Ana River Mainstem, CA.--The Committee has provided 
$42,500,000 to continue construction of this project. No funds 
are included for the San Timoteo reach of the project. The 
reduction made to this project should not be viewed as any 
diminution of support for this project, rather an attempt to 
balance out the Corps of Engineers nationwide program among the 
various missions of the Corps.
    Upper Guadalupe River, CA.--The Committee has included 
$3,500,000 to initiate construction of this project.
    Delaware Bay Coastline, Bethany Beach to South Bethany 
Beach, DE.--$4,000,000 is provided for construction of this 
shore protection project.

Committee has included $1,700,000 to continue construction of 
this project.
    Washington, DC and Vicinity, DC.--The Committee has 
provided $400,000 to initiate construction as proposed in the 
budget request.
    Everglades and South Florida Ecosystem Restoration, FL.--
The Committee has chosen not to combine the various, separately 
authorized, components of the project into a single line item 
as was proposed in the budget. The Committee believes that it 
is prudent to maintain visibility of the various project 
elements in the budget process. However, for purposes of 
reprogramming actions, the Central and South Florida Project, 
the Everglades and South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Project 
and the Kissimmee River Project should be treated as a single 
project when considering the reprogramming guidance provided in 
an earlier section of this report.
    The Committee has chosen not to fund the $35,000,000 
request for the Modified Waters Delivery Plan as proposed in 
the budget. The Committee does not believe sufficient current 
authorization exists for the Corps to fund this work. As the 
work involved primarily benefits Everglades National Park, 
budgeting for this work should be continued by the Interior 
Department as has been past practice. The Committee is unsure 
why this funding decision was made; however, much has been made 
of the increase in costs of the Modified Waters Delivery Plan 
since its authorization. The Committee understands that over 43 
percent of cost growth is due to the extraordinary increase in 
real estate values in the Miami-Dade area. Prices for land and 
houses have been rising as much as 5 percent per month over the 
last 2 years. Another significant cost increase has been due to 
overseas demand for cement and high fuel prices that have 
driven up construction costs.
    The other major contributor to the cost increase is the 
inclusion of bridge work for the Tamiami Trail. The 1992 design 
which Congress approved was based on a determination that 
existing culverts under the Trail could carry the flow expected 
for the Modified Waters Delivery Plan without overtopping the 
Tamiami Trail. Since then, the Corps has worked with the 
sponsor, the South Florida Water Management District, and the 
United States Geological Survey to determine actual capacities 
of these culverts based on actual conditions that exist. The 
Corps has also worked with the Florida Department of 
Transportation on ensuring a safe design for the roadway. Based 
on these analyses and design refinements, the Tamiami Trail fix 
is much more involved than originally conceived. In order to 
provide appropriate water deliveries to Everglades National 
Park, both the Corps and the Department of Interior believe 
building a bridge of some length, as well as raising the 
roadway, is required to allow the design flows to pass as well 
as ensure a safe highway. This is a significant part of the 
cost increase as well. Over $130,000,000 of the current 
estimate of $398,000,000 is for the Trail work.
    The Committee encourages the administration to include the 
Modified Waters Delivery Plan funding in the Interior budget in 
future budget submissions.
    Everglades and South Florida Ecosystem Restoration, FL.--
Within the funds provided, the Corps may initiate construction 
of the Aquifer Storage and Recovery pilot projects.
    Florida Keys Water Quality Improvements, FL.--The Committee 
has provided $3,000,000 for continued implementation of this 
project. The Committee urges the administration to budget for 
this project due to the interrelationship of this work to the 
Everglades Restoration project, Biscayne Bay and all of the 
nearshore waters.
    Jacksonville Harbor, FL.--The Committee has provided 
$500,000 to continue work on the General Reevaluation Report.
    Tampa Harbor, FL.--$200,000 is provided to continue the 
General Reevaluation Report.
    Atlanta, GA.--The Committee has included $2,000,000 to 
initiate this project.
    Brunswick Harbor, GA.--The Committee has included 
$19,900,000 to continue construction of this project.
    Oates Creek, Richmond County, GA.--The Committee has 
included $500,000 to continue construction of this project.
    Tybee Island, GA.--The Committee has provided $18,000 to 
complete the Limited Reevaluation Report for the shore 
protection project in preparation for the next scheduled 
renourishment.
    Kaumalapau Harbor, Lanai, HI.--The Committee has provided 
$13,000,000 to complete construction of this project.
    Rural Idaho Environmental Infrastructure, ID.--The 
Committee has provided $5,500,000 for this project. Within the 
funds provided the Corps should give consideration to projects 
at Emmett, Burley, Rupert, Bonners Ferry, Donnelly, Eastern 
Idaho Regional Water Authority, Driggs, and Smelterville. Other 
communities that meet the program criteria should be considered 
as funding allows.
    Des Plaines River, IL.--The Committee has included 
$4,000,000 to continue construction of this project.
    McCook and Thornton Reservoirs, IL.--The Committee has 
included $30,000,000 for continued construction of this 
project.
    Olmsted Locks and Dam, Ohio River, IL and KY.--The 
Committee has provided $85,000,000 to continue construction of 
this project. The reduction made to this project should not be 
viewed as any diminution of support for this project, rather an 
attempt to balance out the Corps of Engineers nationwide 
program among the various missions of the Corps. None of the 
funds provided for the Olmsted Locks and Dam Project are to be 
used to reimburse the Claims and Judgment Fund.
    Missouri Fish and Wildlife Recovery, IA, KS, MO, MT, NE, ND 
and SD.--The Committee has provided $60,000,000 for this 
project. This is a significant increase from fiscal year 2005 
funding but considerably less than the request. The Committee 
is frustrated that the administration has not forwarded a 
legislative proposal to authorize endangered species recovery 
work along the Missouri River. Fish and Wildlife Mitigation for 
the lower river has been authorized for several years; however, 
habitat recovery for the upper river has yet to be addressed in 
authorization language. Estimates for recovery of species along 
the Missouri River are in excess of $3,500,000,000. The 
Committee would not fund a $3,500,000,000 construction project 
without a specific authorization and we do not believe it 
prudent for the budget to continue asking for annual budget 
increases to this project without clear authorization as to the 
actions necessary for recovery.
    Missouri River Levee System, IA, NE, KS and MO.--The 
Committee has included $750,000 to continue construction of 
this project.
    Turkey Creek, KS and MO.--The Committee has included 
$4,000,000 to continue construction of this project.
    Kentucky Lock and Dam, Tennessee River, KY.--The Committee 
has included $32,000,000 to continue construction of this 
project.
    McAlpine Locks and Dam, Ohio River, KY and IN.--The 
Committee has provided $65,000,000 to continue construction of 
this project. The reduction made to this project should not be 
viewed as any diminution of support for this project, rather an 
attempt to balance out the Corps of Engineers nationwide 
program among the various missions of the Corps.
    Inner Harbor Lock and Dam, LA.--The Committee has included 
$15,000,000 to continue construction of this project.
    J. Bennett Johnston Waterway, LA.--The Committee has 
provided $15,000 for navigation channel refinement features, 
land purchases and development for mitigation of project 
impacts, and construction of project recreation and appurtenant 
features.
    Larose to Golden Meadow, LA.--The Committee has included 
$1,000,000 to continue construction of this project.
    New Orleans to Venice, LA.--The Committee has included 
$3,600,000 to continue construction of this project.
    West Bank and Vicinity, New Orleans, LA.--The Committee has 
provided $25,000,000 to continue construction of this project. 
The reduction made to this project should not be viewed as any 
diminution of support for this project, rather an attempt to 
balance out the Corps of Engineers nationwide program among the 
various missions of the Corps.
    Chesapeake Bay Environmental Program, MD, PA and VA.--The 
Committee has included $2950 for continuation of this project. 
Within the funds provided, $273,000 is included to continue the 
environmental studies concerning non-native oysters.
    Chesapeake Bay Oyster Recovery, MD and VA.--The Committee

Program.--The Committee has provided $3,800,000 for this 
program. Within the funds provided, $2,300,000 is for an 
Alternative Sand Test Beach and Breakwater Project in Florida 
and $1,500,000 is for the Sacred Falls Demonstration project in 
Hawaii.
    Ability to Pay.--Section 103(m) of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 1986 Public Law 99-662, as amended, requires 
that all project cooperation agreements for flood damage 
reduction projects, to which non-Federal cost sharing applies, 
will be subject to the ability of non-Federal sponsors to pay 
their shares. Congress included this section in the landmark 
1986 Act to ensure that as many communities as possible would 
qualify for Federal flood damage reduction projects, based more 
on needs and less on financial capabilities. The Secretary 
published eligibility criteria in 33 CFR 241, which requires a 
non-Federal sponsor to meet an ability-to-pay test. However, 
the Committee believes that the Secretary's test is too 
restrictive and operates to exclude most communities from 
qualifying for relief under the ability-to-pay provision. For 
example, 33 CFR 241.4(f) specifies that the test should be 
structured so that reductions in the level of cost-sharing will 
be granted in ``only a limited number of cases of severe 
economic hardship,'' and should depend not only on the economic 
circumstances within a project area, but also on the conditions 
of the state in which the project area is located.

                     CONTINUING AUTHORITIES PROGRAM

    When Congress authorized the initial Continuing Authorities 
in the 1940s and 1950s, they were envisioned to provide a small 
pool of money available to the Corps of Engineers to solve very 
small localized problems without being encumbered by the longer 
study and project authorization process. As more programs were 
added to the Continuing Authorities Program [CAP] they became 
increasingly popular with congressional Members and the public. 
More and more congressionally directed projects began to appear 
in the annual appropriations bills. At first these 
congressionally directed projects were added to the base 
program. As more and more of these congressionally directed 
projects came into the program it became difficult for these 
congressionally directed projects to be added to the base and 
as such, the base program began to shrink. Congressionally 
directed projects now dominate all sections of the CAP Program. 
Congressionally directed projects have proliferated to such an 
extent that several of the sections are over-subscribed. Below 
are the various CAP sections, their congressionally authorized 
appropriation limit and the current estimate of outstanding 
obligations:

Section 206.............................      25,000,000      50,500,000
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Committee directs that the Corps should prioritize 
projects in the following manner to try to get the backlog of 
these projects reduced. The first priority for funding should 
be for construction projects that already have an executed 
Project Cooperation Agreement. The next priority should be for 
projects with executed design agreements. Third priority would 
be for those with executed feasibility agreement. The last 
priority should be new starts. To further this end, the 
Committee directs a moratorium on execution of new cost share 
agreements during fiscal year 2006. Work should continue on all 
phases as funding and priority allows, but no project should 
advance to the next stage during fiscal year 2006, except, of 
course, project completions.
    The Committee is aware that there are funding requirements 
for ongoing, continuing authorities projects that may not be 
accommodated within the funds provided for each program. It is 
not the Committee's intent that ongoing projects should be 
terminated. If additional funds are needed to keep ongoing work 
in any program on schedule, the Committee urges the Corps to 
reprogram the necessary funds.

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

    The Committee believes that it is essential to provide 
adequate resources and funding to the Mississippi River and 
Tributaries program in order to protect the large investment in 
flood control facilities. Although much progress has been made, 
considerable work remains to be done for the protection and 
economic development of the rich natural resources in the 
Valley. The Committee expects the additional funds to be used 
to advance ongoing studies, initiate new studies, and advance 
important construction and maintenance work.

                   OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, GENERAL

Appropriations, 2005..................................\1\ $1,943,428,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   1,979,000,000
House allowance.........................................   2,000,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,100,000,000

\1\ Excludes emergency appropriation of $155,400,000.

    The Committee continues to believe that it is essential to 
provide adequate resources and attention to operation and 
maintenance requirements in order to protect the large Federal 
investment. Yet, current and projected budgetary constraints 
require the Committee to limit the amount of work that can be 
accomplished in the fiscal year. In order to cope with the 
current situation, the Corps has had to defer or delay 
scheduled maintenance activities.
    Maintenance backlogs continue to grow, with much of the 
backlog being essential maintenance dredging needed to keep the 
Nation's ports, harbors, and waterways open and able to 
efficiently handle important national and international trade 
activities. Yet, the Committee is aware that out-year budget 
planning guidance for the Corps of Engineers projects is such 
that the current appropriations for their critical operation 
and maintenance activities will continue to decline for the 
foreseeable future. If additional resources are not made 
available, the Corps will be forced to cut back on services, 
and begin to terminate and close many projects and activities.
    The Committee is aware of the Corps' efforts to stretch the 
limited resources to cover all of its projects and to effect 
savings through a variety of means. With an increasing number 
of projects entering the inventory, and budgetary constraints 
increasing, it is clear that the Corps will have to find 
innovative ways of accomplishing required maintenance work, 
while reducing operational and other costs.
    The budget request has proposed that no navigation project 
with less than 1 billion ton-miles of cargo be eligible for 
maintenance dredging. The Committee believes that this is in 
direct conflict with the way projects are evaluated, 
authorized, and analyzed. Project analysis is based upon 
Economic and Environmental Principles and Guidelines for Water 
and Related Land Resources Implementation Studies (1983), the 
Corps of Engineers Planning Guidance Notebook (2000), and other 
polices and procedures. For navigation studies, the analysis 
centers on transportation savings to the Nation considering the 
ultimate origins and destinations of commodities to be moved. 
Operation and maintenance costs are considered as a part of 
this analysis and are figured into the benefit to cost ratio 
utilized to make the investment decision. By applying an 
arbitrary ton-mile figure to determine O&M; funding decisions, 
the budget request has essentially obviated the need for any of 
the previous studies undertaken to determine the investment 
decision.
    The Committee is concerned about the annual proposals for 
reductions of maintenance funding for ``low use waterways and 
ports''. These tributary waterways naturally do not enjoy the 
same level of relative efficiencies as mainstem waterways. The 
Mississippi and Ohio Rivers handle tremendous volumes of 
traffic over long distances and so generate impressive ton-mile 
statistics. Tributaries, by nature, provide generally short, 
smaller channels with lower traffic densities. Consequently, 
``ton-mile'' statistics for tributary waterways are dwarfed by 
statistics for the mainstem waterways. It is important to 
recognize that the commerce on the tributaries is usually only 
a small part of the total journey between producer and 
consumer. When these statistics are compared on a system basis, 
nearly all of these waterways appear to ``pay their way'' and 
are performing as the economic analysis indicated when they 
were originally authorized.
    Uncertainties in maintenance funding for lower use projects 
seriously impacts their ability to compete and become higher 
use facilities. Without funding to provide a stable channel and 
authorized depths and widths, industries and shippers are 
reluctant to make the necessary investments in using these 
projects. The Committee believes that proposed elimination of 
maintenance funding for authorized projects is not only a 
serious disservice to the public, but it demonstrates a 
profound lack of respect for the Congressional oversight 
committees that have jurisdiction for authorization and 
deauthorization of such projects.
    The Committee is not in favor of funding projects which are 
no longer economically viable nor environmentally sustainable. 
Unfortunately, the administration has chosen a path of 
underfunding, or an entire lack of funding, for projects in an 
effort to achieve de facto deauthorization through the 
appropriations process by utilizing the billion-ton-mile model.
    Further, the Committee believes much could be learned by 
the open exchange of how ``low-use'' waterways and ports are 
calculated, for the billion-ton-mile does not adequately 
reflect the flow of commerce today. The Committee remains 
concerned about the economic impacts of not maintaining all of 
our waterways and ports at their authorized depths. As a result 
of waterways not being maintained at the authorized depths, 
shippers are forced to divide their cargo and place it on a 
number of smaller ships in order to make passage to the final 
destination. This adds significantly to the cost and time of 
the movement of products in and around our waterways, something 
which the administration does not appropriately take into 
account when formulating the budget for the Corps. Therefore, 
the Committee strongly encourages the administration to put 
forth a proposal for a model which better reflects the flow of 
goods along all of our ports and waterways, including 
lightering. Until then, however, the Committee believes the 
administration has the responsibility to budget for each and 
every project such that the authorized widths and depths are 
maintained.

                       CORPS HOPPER DREDGE FLEET

    During fiscal year 2002, the Committee requested the 
General Accounting Office [GAO] to review the benefits and 
effects of current and proposed restrictions on the Corps' 
hopper dredge fleet. The Committee faces significant future 
investments in the Corps hopper dredge fleet, as it is rapidly 
aging. The Committee believes that the investment decisions 
must take into consideration the subsequent use of the fleet. 
The final GAO report, released March, 2003, reviewed the 
impacts of operational changes to the fleet since fiscal year 
1993. GAO's findings made it clear to the Committee that 
additional costs have been imposed upon the Corps with the 
decreased use of the fleet, but that the benefits have not been 
realized. Additionally, the GAO found that the Corps' 
contracting process for hopper dredges was not effective. Most 
importantly, the GAO reported that the Corps of Engineers did 
not have even a limited system to evaluate the costs and 
benefits of the varying operational levels of its hopper dredge 
fleet, nor did it have a means to make maintenance and repair 
decisions of the fleet taking operational use into 
consideration. The Committee remains concerned that since 2000, 
the Corps has provided a report to Congress which has been 
found to have no analytical basis, thus calling into question 
the ready reserve policy. Therefore, the Committee has provided 
legislative language which changes the current dredge policy.

     DIRECT FUNDING OF OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE WORK AND THE PMAS

    The President's Budget includes user charge proposals to 
offset discretionary spending. In particular, the 
Administration proposes that, starting in 2006, receipts from 
the sale of hydroelectric power generated at certain Federal 
dams operated by the Corps of Engineers be used to finance the 
operation and maintenance of those facilities. This direct 
financing arrangement already exists for the Bonneville Power 
Administration. However, due to budgetary scoring impacts the 
Committee is unable to extend this proposal to the 
Southeastern, Southwestern, and Western Power Administrations 
in the Department of Energy.
    The budget request and the approved Committee allowance are 
shown on the following table:

\1\ Exclude emergency appropriation of $148,000,000.

    The Committee has included $43,000,000 for the FCCE 
account. This account provides funds for preparedness 
activities for natural and other disasters, response, and 
emergency flood fighting and rescue operations, hurricane 
response, and emergency shore protection work. It also provides 
for emergency supplies of clean water where the source has been 
contaminated or where adequate supplies of water are needed for 
consumption.

Committee recommendation................................     150,000,000

    An appropriation of $150,000,000 is recommended for the 
regulatory program of the Corps of Engineers.
    This appropriation provides for salaries and costs incurred 
administering regulation of activities affecting U.S. waters, 
including wetlands, in accordance with the Rivers and Harbors 
Act of 1899 33 U.S.C. Sec. 401, the Clean Water Act of 1977 
Public Law 95-217, and the Marine Protection, Research and 
Sanctuaries Act of 1972 Public Law 92-532.
    The appropriation helps maintain program performance, 
protects important aquatic resources, and supports partnerships 
with States and local communities through watershed planning 
efforts.

            FORMERLY UTILIZED SITES REMEDIAL ACTION PROGRAM

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $163,680,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     140,000,000
House allowance.........................................     140,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     140,000,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $140,000,000 
to continue activities related to the Formerly Utilized Sites 
Remedial Action Program [FUSRAP] in fiscal year 2005.
    The responsibility for the cleanup of contaminated sites 
under the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program was 
transferred to the Army Corps of Engineers in the Fiscal Year 
1998 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act, Public 
Law 105-62.
    FUSRAP is not specifically defined by statute. The program 
was established in 1974 under the broad authority of the Atomic 
Energy Act and, until fiscal year 1998, funds for the cleanup 
of contaminated defense sites had been appropriated to the 
Department of Energy through existing appropriation accounts. 
In appropriating FUSRAP funds to the Corps of Engineers, the 
Committee intended to transfer only the responsibility for 
administration and execution of cleanup activities at eligible 
sites where remediation had not been completed. It did not 
intend to transfer ownership of and accountability for real 
property interests that remain with the Department of Energy.
    The Corps of Engineers has extensive experience in the 
cleanup of hazardous, toxic, and radioactive wastes through its 
work for the Department of Defense and other Federal agencies. 
The Committee always intended for the Corps' expertise be used 
in the same manner for the cleanup of contaminated sites under 
FUSRAP. The Committee expects the Corps to continue programming 
and budgeting for FUSRAP as part of the Corps of Engineers--
Civil program.

                            general expenses

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $165,664,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     162,000,000
House allowance.........................................     152,021,000
Committee recommendation................................     165,000,000

    This appropriation finances the expenses of the Office, 
Chief of Engineers, the Division Offices, and certain research 
and statistical functions of the Corps of Engineers. The 
Committee recommendation is $165,000,000. The Committee 
understands that the cost of the required financial audit of 
the Corps of Engineers may exceed $20,000,000 for fiscal year 
2006. Therefore, the Committee encourages the Corps to use the 
Revolving Fund to undertake this audit and budget appropriation 
for this audit in future years.
    Executive Direction and Management.--The Office of the 
Chief of Engineers and eight division offices supervise work in 
38 district offices.
    Humphreys Engineer Center Support Activity.--This support 
center provides administrative services (such as personnel, 
logistics, information management, and finance and accounting) 
for the Office of the Chief of Engineers and other separate 
field operating activities.
    Institute for Water Resources.--This institute performs 
studies, analyses, and develops planning techniques for the 
management and development of the Nation's water resources.
    United States Army Corps of Engineers Finance Center.--This 
center provides centralized support for all Corps finance and 
accounting.
    Office of Congressional Affairs.--The Committee has 
included statutory language for the past several years 
prohibiting any funds from being used to fund an Office of 
Congressional Affairs within the executive office of the Chief 
of Engineers. The Committee believes that an Office of 
Congressional Affairs for the Civil Works Program would hamper 
the efficient and effective coordination of issues with the 
Committee staff and Members of Congress. The Committee believes 
that the technical knowledge and managerial expertise needed 
for the Corps headquarters to effectively address Civil Works 
authorization, appropriation, and Headquarters policy matters 
resides in the Civil Works organization. Therefore, the 
Committee strongly recommends that the office of Congressional 
Affairs not be a part of the process by which information on 
Civil Works projects, programs, and activities is provided to 
Congress.
    The Committee reminds the Corps that the General Expenses 
Account is to be used exclusively for executive oversight and 
management of the Civil Works Program.
    In 1998, The Chief of Engineers issued a Command Directive 
transferring the oversight and management of the General 
Expenses account, as well as the manpower associated with this 
function, from the Civil Works Directorate to the Resource 
Management Office. General Expense funds are appropriated 
solely for the executive management and oversight of the Civil 
Works Program under the direction of the Director of Civil 
Works.
    The Committee is pleased with the efforts of the Corps to 
restructure the management of general expense funds. It 
continues to believe that the general expense dollars are 
ultimately at the discretion of the Chief of Engineers and are 
intended to be utilized in his effort to carry out the Corps' 
mission. The new controls put in place to manage the general 
expense dollars and evaluate the needs of the Corps address the 
Committee's previous concerns. The Committee requests the Corps 
continue to provide biannual written notification of the 
dispersal of general expense funds.

The Act also authorizes the appropriation of funds for fish, 
wildlife, recreation, mitigation, and conservation; establishes 
an account in the Treasury for the deposit of these funds and 
of other contributions for mitigation and conservation 
activities; and establishes a Utah Reclamation Mitigation and 
Conservation Commission to administer funds in that account. 
The Act further assigns responsibilities for carrying out the 
Act to the Secretary of the Interior and prohibits delegation 
of those responsibilities to the Bureau of Reclamation.

                      WATER AND RELATED RESOURCES

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $852,605,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     801,569,000
House allowance.........................................     832,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     899,569,000

    An appropriation of $899,569,000 is recommended by the 
Committee for general investigations of the Bureau of 
Reclamation. The water and related resources account supports 
the development, management, and restoration of water and 
related natural resources in the 17 Western States. The account 
includes funds for operating and maintaining existing 
facilities to obtain the greatest overall level of benefits, to 
protect public safety, and to conduct studies on ways to 
improve the use of water and related natural resources. Work 
will be done in partnership and cooperation with non-Federal 
entities and other Federal agencies.
    The Committee has divided underfinancing between the 
Resources Management Subaccount and the Facilities Operation 
and Maintenance Subaccount. The Committee directs that the 
underfinancing amount in each subaccount initially be applied 
uniformly across all projects within the subaccounts. Upon 
applying the underfinanced amounts, normal reprogramming 
procedures should be undertaken to account for schedule 
slippages, accelerations or other unforeseen conditions.
    The amounts recommended by the Committee are shown on the 
following table along with the budget request.

                       BUILDING AND SITE SECURITY

    Security Costs and Allocations.--Following the attacks on 
September 11, 2001, the Bureau of Reclamation strengthened 
security at Federal dams and similar facilities and has 
undertaken but not completed extensive risk assessments for 
over 400 units throughout the West. Many of these are multi-
purpose facilities providing flood control, water storage for 
contract irrigators, municipal and industrial water supplies, 
power generation, recreation and environmental mitigation 
benefits. The Committee understands that beginning in fiscal 
year 2006, Reclamation will no longer make a distinction 
between pre-September 11, 2001, security costs and post-
September 11, 2001, security costs. The Committee recognizes 
that the security posture of Reclamation will likely not 
approach pre-September 11, 2001, levels for many years, if 
ever. The Committee recognizes that project beneficiaries 
benefit from this enhanced security. However, the Committee 
remains concerned about the reimbursability of increased 
security costs for Reclamation projects. The Committee wants to 
ensure that all project beneficiaries that benefit from the 
enhanced security posture, pay a fair share of the costs. 
Therefore, Reclamation shall provide a report to the Committee, 
no later than, May 1, 2007, with a breakout of planned 
reimbursable and non-reimbursable security costs by project pro 
rated by project purposes. The Committee directs the 
Commissioner not to begin the reimbursement process until the 
Congress provides direct instruction to do so.

Direct Funding of Operations and Maintenance Work and the PMAs

    The Committee has chosen not to include the legislative 
proposal to directly fund reclamation hydropower operation and 
maintenance activities through receipts from the power 
marketing administrations due to budgetary scoring 
implications.

    Colorado Front Work and Levee System, AZ.--The Committee 
has included $8,200,000 for continuation of this project. 
Additional funds were provided above the budget request for 
continued work on the regulating reservoirs and for initiation 
of appropriate studies to determine if additional capacity can 
be economically realized behind Laguna Dam if sediment is 
removed. The Committee understands that these projects have the 
potential of saving as much as 300,000 acre-feet of Colorado 
River System water that would otherwise be over-delivered to 
Mexico. Due to the potential for such water savings 
(essentially Nevada's entire annual share of Colorado River 
Water), the Committee urges Reclamation to increase budgeting 
for these items.
    South/Central Arizona Investigations Program, AZ.--Within 
the funds provided, the Committee has included $300,000 for the 
Central Arizona Salinity Study and $250,000 for the West Salt 
River Study.
    Central Valley Project.--
  --Delta Division.--Within the funds provided for the Delta 
        Division, $4,000,000 is provided for the Interagency 
        Ecological Program.
  --Friant Division.--$200,000 has been provided for appraisal 
        level studies of the Madera Irrigation District Water 
        Supply Enhancement.
  --Miscellaneous Project Programs.--Additional funds above the 
        budget request are provided for the Kaweah River Delta 
        Corridor Enhancement Study ($63,000) and the Sacramento 
        Valley Regional Integrated Water Management Plan 
        ($2,500,000).
  --Sacramento River Division.--Additional funds above the 
        budget request are provided to complete the Glen Colusa 
        Irrigation District Fish Screen Improvement Project.
  --Trinity River Division.--The Committee has provided 
        $500,000 above the budget request for the Fishery 
        Restoration program. These funds are to be used in 
        concert with the $2,000,000 provided in the Central 
        Valley Project Restoration Program to meet Federal 
        trust responsibilities to protect the fishery resources 
        of the Hoopa Valley Tribe. The Commissioner is urged to 
        continue to support a Co-Management Agreement between 
        the Hoopa Valley Tribe and the Bureau of Reclamation.
    Animas-La Plata, CO.--The Committee has provided 
$60,000,000 for construction of this project.
    Colorado-Big Thompson Project, CO.--The Committee is aware 
of the recently completed pipeline study and urges Reclamation 
to work with the stakeholders with relation to the Colorado-Big 
Thompson project as authorities allow.
    Fort Peck, Dry Prairie Rural Water System, MT.--The 
Committee has provided $19,000,000 for continued construction 
of the project.
    Lahontan Basin Project, NV.--The Committee has learned that 
dam safety issues have arisen concerning Tahoe Dam. As this dam 
provides more than 70 percent of the water supply for the area, 
it is imperative that safety remediation activities be 
undertaken as soon as possible. The Committee understands that 
preliminary investigations are underway and will be continued 
with budgeted funds in fiscal year 2006. The Committee expects 
Reclamation to ask for the appropriate funding level in the 
fiscal year 2007 budget to address safety issues.
    Southern Nevada Water Recycling Project, NV.--The Committee 
has provided $3,423,000 to complete the Federal share of this 
project.
    Chimayo Water Plan, NM.--The Committee has provided 
$1,000,000 to initiate this project.
    Espanola Water Diversion, NM.--The Committee has provided 
$1,000,000 to initiate this project.
    Middle Rio Grande Project, New Mexico.--The conferees 
support the reorganization of the Endangered Species Act 
Collaborative Program resulting in the Army Corps of Engineers 
in collaboration with the Fish and Wildlife Service taking 
responsibility to provide the administrative support for the 
program and the Army Corps of Engineers taking responsibility 
to meet the Reasonable and Prudent Alternative of the 2003 
Biological Opinion required by section 205 of Public Law 108-
447 (118 Stat 2949) other than the water acquisition and 
management functions set out in the Reasonable and Prudent 
Alternative. Additionally, the Army Corps of Engineers will 
assume responsibility for providing a detailed spending plan 
for fiscal year 2006 funds to the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees for approval; completion of the 
baseline Long-Term Plan and completion of the Programmatic 
Environmental Impact Statement before the end of fiscal year 
2006. The Bureau of Reclamation retains responsibility to meet 
the Reasonable and Prudent Alternative regarding water 
acquisition and management, including acquisition of water to 
meet the flow requirements articulated in the 2003 Biological 
Opinion and development of a long-term plan to meet these flow 
requirements. The conferees expect the Bureau of Reclamation to 
facilitate a smooth transition of administrative functions for 
the program to the Army Corps of Engineers and the Fish and 
Wildlife Service within 3 months of the beginning of fiscal 
year 2006. Of the total $25,500,000 provided for the Middle Rio 
Grande Project, the conferees have provided $12,900,000 for the 
collaborative program. Of these funds, The Bureau of 
Reclamation is provided $5,000,000 for water acquisition and 
associated administrative support within the Bureau; the Bureau 
is to transfer $7,500,000 to the Army Corps of Engineers to 
fund populations management, habitat restoration, water 
management studies, fish passage and river connectivity, minnow 
management, water quality, science and monitoring, biological 
opinion monitoring, and program management to meet the 2003 
Biological Opinion Reasonable and Prudent Alternatives; and to 
provide $400,000 to the Fish and Wildlife Service for program 
management support. The cost-share requirements of the program 
remain 75 percent Federal/25 percent non-Federal for all 
activities except water acquisition and program administration. 
Non-Federal cost share may be provided through in-kind services 
and participation on the administration team.
    Middle Rio Grande Off-Channel Sanctuaries, New Mexico.--The 
Committee provides $2,000,000 for completion of construction 
and initial operation of the off-channel sanctuary authorized 
under section 6014 of Public Law 109-13.
    Norman, OK.--The Committee has included $300,000 to 
initiate this study.
    Deschutes Ecosystem Restoration Project, OR.--The Committee 
has provided $2,000,000 to continue this project.
    Mid-Dakota Rural Water Project, SD.--The Committee has 
provided $4,000,000 to close out this project that was 
completed in fiscal year 2005.
    El Paso, Water Reclamation and Reuse, TX.--The Committee 
has included $103,000 to complete the project as currently 
authorized.
    Williamson County Water Reclamation and Reuse Project, 
TX.--The Committee has provided $200,000 to initiate this 
project.
    Northern Utah Investigations Program, UT.--The Committee 
has included an additional $500,000 for the Rural Water 
Technology Alliance.
    Washington Investigations Program, WA.--The Committee has 
provided $950,000 for this program. Within the funds provided, 
$600,000 is for the Odessa Sub Area study, and $50,000 is for 
the West Canal study.
    Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Project, Title I.--
The Committee is concerned about drought conditions in the west 
and particularly how they relate to the Colorado River System. 
As was discussed under the Colorado Front Work and Levee System 
Project, it is imperative that Reclamation, working with the 
stakeholders, determine how to retain additional water in the 
system to avoid making excess releases to Mexico.
    The Yuma desalting plant was constructed by the Bureau of 
Reclamation to address Treaty water, quality and quantity, 
issues with Mexico; however, it has never been operated at more 
than about one-third capacity for about 6 months. Without the 
plant, about 100,000 acre feet of Colorado River water is 
bypassed to Mexico through the Welton-Mohawk Drain. Treaty 
obligations have been met by other means over the last 10-12 
years rather than using the desalting plant. However, with the 
persistent drought the loss of that 100,000 acre feet of water 
is becoming more of an issue as Lake Mead and Lake Powell have 
dropped.
    The Committee understands that the Yuma plant is antiquated 
and expensive to operate. However, it appears to the Committee 
that it might be the best short-term alternative to respond to 
the drought. Therefore, the Committee directs the Commissioner 
of Reclamation to provide an engineering report to the 
Committee no later than 30 days after the enactment of this act 
detailing the costs and current progress towards modernizing 
the Yuma plant to where it could be used as intended. Further, 
the Committee directs the Commissioner to include realistic 
operational costs in the report for the plant. The Committee 
would entertain discussions of alternate ideas for water 
sources or operation of the plant provided they do not infringe 
upon property rights, state or local laws.
    Departmental Irrigation Program.--The Committee has 
provided $1,900,000 for this program. $150,000 is provided for 
the Uncompaghre selenium control project and $1,750,000 is for 
irrigation modernization activities for Elephant Butte 
Irrigation District.
    Drought Emergency Assistance.--The Committee has provided 
the budget request for this program. Within the funds provided, 
the Committee urges Reclamation to provide full and fair 
consideration for drought assistance from the State of Hawaii.
    Native American Affairs Program.--Additional funds provided 
above the budget request are for continued work on the AAMODT 
settlement.
    Research and Development, Science and Technology Program.--
The Committee has provided $1,000,000 above the request for the 
further refinement of the Upper Rio Grande Water Operations 
Model in collaboration with the Army Corps of Engineers and 
Sandia National Laboratories.
    Research and Development, Desalination Research and 
Development Program.--The Committee has provided $11,025,000 
for this program. Within the funds provided, $4,000,000 is for 
desalination R&D; efforts directed by the Bureau of Reclamation. 
The Committee continues to urge the Bureau of Reclamation to 
place a higher priority on desalination activities in future 
budgets given the importance of sustainable water supplies to 
the West and to other regions of the country. Additionally, the 
Committee has provided $7,000,000 for the completion of 
construction of the Tularosa Basin Desalination Facility, New 
Mexico and initial operation. Upon completion of the facility, 
the Bureau is directed to select an organization to operate the 
facility under Bureau direction. In this selection the Bureau 
should give priority to local education institutions who have 
expertise, do not need to relocate and have on-going water 
research activities.
    Site Security.--The Committee has provided the budget 
request for this item and directs that increased security costs 
continue to be non-reimbursible until the Committee notifies 
Reclamation otherwise.
    Title XVI, Water Reclamation and Reuse.--The Committee has 
provided $4,229,000 for this program. Within the funds 
provided, the Committee has included $3,000,000 for the 
WateReuse Foundation. These funds shall be available to support 
the Foundation's research priorities.
    Water Conservation Field Service Program.--The Committee 
has included $300,000 for urban water conservation projects 
identified through the Metropolitan Water District of Southern 
California Innovative Conservation Program that will increase 
water-use efficiency. In addition, $100,000 is provided for the 
Bureau of Reclamation to initiate a study to identify 
concurrent and overlapping Government programs aimed at 
improving water resource efficiency. It is hoped that the study 
will encourage agencies to look beyond their individual areas 
of responsibility in an effort to bring about greater resource 
efficiencies to the Southern California region.
    Water 2025.--The dire drought the West is currently 
experiencing, combined with an unprecedented number of water 
users and endangered species and related requirements, make 
water use efficiencies more critical than ever. The Committee 
has provided $20,000,000 for this initiative proposed by the 
administration. The Committee believes that water resource and 
efficiency issues, combined with the drought and endangered 
species listings, make the Rio Grande River in New Mexico the 
embodiment of the Water 2025 initiative. Therefore, the 
Committee has included $1,000,000 to provide for continued 
efficiency and water improvements related to the Middle Rio 
Grande Conservancy District and $1,000,000 for work related to 
water efficiency and supply supplementation in the Pecos 
consistent with the partnership between the Carlsbad Irrigation 
District and the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission. A 
critical component of reducing tension among multiple water 
users is collaborative planning and joint operations. Within 
the funds provided, $2,000,000 is for the Desert Research 
Institute to address water quality and environmental issues in 
ways that will bring industry and regulators to mutually 
acceptable answers.
    Wetlands Development.--The Committee recommendation 
includes $1,500,000 for the Yuma East Wetlands project.

                CENTRAL VALLEY PROJECT RESTORATION FUND

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $54,628,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      52,219,000
House allowance.........................................      52,219,000
Committee recommendation................................      52,219,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $52,219,000, 
the same as the budget request for the Central Valley Project 
Restoration Fund.
    The Central Valley Project Restoration Fund was authorized 
in the Central Valley Project Improvement Act, title 34 of 
Public Law 102-575. This fund was established to provide 
funding from project beneficiaries for habitat restoration, 
improvement and acquisition, and other fish and wildlife 
restoration activities in the Central Valley project area of 
California. Revenues are derived from payments by project 
beneficiaries and from donations. Payments from project 
beneficiaries include several required by the Act (Friant 
Division surcharges, higher charges on water transferred to 
non-CVP users, and tiered water prices) and, to the extent 
required in appropriations acts, additional annual mitigation 
and restoration payments.

                    CALIFORNIA BAY-DELTA RESTORATION

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2005....................................................
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     $35,000,000
House allowance.........................................      35,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      37,000,000

    This account funds activities that are consistent with the 
CALFED Bay-Delta Program, a collaborative effort involving 18 
State and Federal agencies and representatives of California's 
urban, agricultural, and environmental communities. The goals 
of the program are to improve fish and wildlife habitat, water 
supply reliability, and water quality in the San Francisco Bay-
San Joaquin River Delta, the principle hub of California's 
water distribution system.
    The Committee has provided $37,000,000, $2,000,000 above 
the budget request for the CALFED Bay-Delta Program. The 
Committee is aware of recent declines in the Delta smelt 
population in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Within the 
funds provided, $1,000,000 is for the Interagency Ecological 
Program to identify the causes of and propose remedies for the 
smelt's population decline and $1,000,000 is for the Westside 
Regional Drainage Program in the San Luis Division of the 
Central Valley Project.

                       POLICY AND ADMINISTRATION

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $57,688,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      57,917,000
House allowance.........................................      57,917,000
Committee recommendation................................      57,917,000

    The Committee recommendation for general administrative 
expenses is $57,917,000. This is the same as the budget 
request.
    The policy and administrative expenses program provides for 
the executive direction and management of all reclamation 
activities, as performed by the Commissioner's offices in 
Washington, DC, Denver, CO, and five regional offices. The 
Denver office and regional offices charge individual projects 
or activities for direct beneficial services and related 
administrative and technical costs. These charges are covered 
under other appropriations.
    Bureau of Reclamation Transformation for the Future.--The 
Committee notes that the core activities of the Bureau have 
largely transitioned from design and construction of dams and 
power plants to maintenance, repair, and renovation of these 
facilities. It is appropriate to ask whether Reclamation has 
the appropriate organizational structure, core competencies, 
and resource allocations to meet the current realities of the 
Bureau's mission. The Committee therefore directs that 
Reclamation contract with the National Research Council to 
conduct a study to advise Reclamation on the appropriate 
organizational, management, and resource configurations to meet 
its construction, maintenance, and infrastructure missions of 
the 21st Century. Once completed, the Bureau shall submit the 
findings to the Committee.

                    TITLE III--DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

    Title III provides for the Department of Energy's programs 
relating to energy supply, environmental management, science, 
national security and other related programs, including the 
power marketing administrations, and the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission.

                             REPROGRAMMINGS

    The Committee requires the Department to promptly and fully 
inform the Committee when a change in program execution or 
funding is required during the fiscal year. A reprogramming 
includes the reallocation of funds from one activity to another 
within an appropriation, or any significant departure from a 
program, project, or activity described in the agency's budget 
justification, including contemplated site budgets as presented 
to and approved or modified by Congress in an appropriations 
act or the accompanying statement of managers or report. For 
construction projects, a reprogramming constitutes the 
reallocation of funds from one construction project identified 
in the justifications to another or a significant change in the 
scope of an approved project.
    Reprogrammings should not be employed to initiate new 
programs or to change program, project, or activity allocations 
specifically denied, limited, or increased by Congress in the 
Act or report. In cases where unforeseen events or conditions 
are deemed to require such changes, proposals shall be 
submitted in advance to the Committee and be fully explained 
and justified. The Committee has not provided the Department 
with any internal reprogramming flexibility in fiscal year 
2005, unless specifically identified in the House, Senate, or 
conference reports. Any reallocation of new or prior year 
budget authority or prior year deobligations must be submitted 
to the Committees in writing and may not be implemented prior 
to approval by the Committees on Appropriations.

                      SMALL BUSINESS PROCUREMENTS

    The Committee is concerned that the Department of Energy's 
current efforts at breaking out procurements for small business 
contracts do not represent a systematic approach for 
consideration of small business statutory goals together with 
other legitimate acquisition objectives.
    Beginning with its roots in the Manhattan Project, the 
Department of Energy [DOE] has executed a broad mandate with 
regard to the Nation's nuclear and energy challenges. The 
Department maintains the primary responsibility for energy 
security, ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the 
nuclear weapons stockpile, cleaning up the environment from the 
legacy of the Cold War, and developing innovations in science 
and technology. A significant portion of DOE's mission 
(approximately 83 percent of DOE's budget) is carried out by 
industrial and academic contractors operating DOE-owned plants 
and laboratories under large facilities management contracts 
where it is essential to meeting mission needs for the work to 
be fully integrated at a site. Although DOE has aggressively 
sought out new opportunities for small businesses as both prime 
contractors and subcontractors, there is a limit to what it can 
do since DOE's facility management contracts are not, for the 
most part, suitable for award to small businesses as prime 
contractors.
    Nevertheless, DOE has increased the amount of DOE dollars 
awarded to small businesses and over $4,000,000,000 a year is 
awarded to small businesses under DOE prime contracts and 
subcontracts. However, DOE's recent innovative efforts to 
increase small business prime contracts have met with mixed 
results. For example, major small business set-a-sides by the 
Office of Environmental Management [EM] have continued EM's 
preferred, but complicated, cost-plus-incentive fee type 
contracts for mission reasons, but have also attempted to 
streamline the process for small businesses. The complexities 
of the Federal procurement process and the clean up mission 
requirements for these procurements often resulted in schedule 
delays which negatively impact the small business participants 
who may be less able to absorb such delays than larger 
businesses may be. NNSA's attempts to break out work from 
facility management contracts have been met with concerns over 
mission fragmentation and the ability to properly administer 
new cadres of newly awarded prime Federal contracts.
    Language was included in section 6022 of Public Law 109-13, 
the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the 
Global War on Terror and Tsunami Relief Act of 2005 (Public Law 
109-13) directing the Secretary of Energy and Administrator of 
the Small Business Administration to negotiate a Memorandum of 
Understanding on developing a better methodology of counting 
prime and subcontracts awarded by the Department of Energy's 
management and operating, management and integration and other 
facility management prime contractors. During this period of 
negotiation, the Committee expects the Department and the 
National Nuclear Security Administration to refrain from 
implementing new contracting schemes, such as the Tri-lab 
Initiative, until an MOU has been filed with the Congress. 
Consistent with section 6022 of the Emergency Supplemental, the 
Committee also urges the Department to increase it efforts to 
ensure that any efforts to break out of prime contracts are 
provided to local small businesses.
    Contracting requirements for the Department designed to 
assist small businesses access the Federal procurement market 
has created inequitable competition amongst 8(a) firms. In the 
attempt to comply with the current contracting requirements, 
the Department has turned to Alaska Native Corporations [ANC] 
as a means to increase its Federal prime contracting numbers. 
Since October 2003, the Department has signed contracts with 
Alaska Native Corporations totaling more that $500,000,000 as 
8(a) firms, despite the size and income of some ANCs. In New 
Mexico, for example, the National Nuclear Security 
Administration has used ANC contractors at the expense of New 
Mexico small businesses.
    The Committee is aware of an ongoing Government 
Accountability Office [GAO] investigation into Federal 
contracting rules that are applied to Indian tribes and Native 
American businesses, including Alaska Native Corporations and 
Hawaiian Native Organizations. The Committee looks forward to 
the completion of the GAO report and the study conducted by the 
Department so that it may identify where appropriate reforms 
are necessary to ensure that the spirit of the Small Business 
Act is fulfilled.

       EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY AT DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY LABS

    In February 2005, the Government Accountability Office 
[GAO] issued a report entitled, ``Equal Employment Opportunity: 
Information on Personnel Actions, Employee Concerns, and 
Oversight at Six Department of Energy Laboratories'' (GAO-05-
190). This report examined six Department of Energy 
laboratories to determine whether differences existed for 
managerial and professional women and minorities compared with 
men and whites in salaries, merit pay increases, separation 
patterns, and promotion rates; what concerns these women and 
minorities have raised; and how the Office of Federal Contract 
Compliance Programs [OFCCP] and the Department of Energy are 
responding to these issues. Based on the recommendations of the 
GAO, the Committee directs the Department of Energy to work 
with Department of Labor's OFCCP to determine the causes of the 
disparities and take the necessary corrective steps to address 
the problems identified.

          LABORATORY DIRECTED RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT [LDRD]

    The Committee is concerned with the continued lack of 
recognition of the value of the LDRD, Plant Directed Research 
and Development [PDRD] and Site Directed Research and 
Development [SDRD] programs to DOE, other Federal agencies, and 
the American taxpayer. For example, the most recent DOE report 
submitted to Congress on the LDRD program clearly indicates 
that other Federal agencies continue to receive a very 
favorable return on their limited investment in the LDRD 
program. The LDRD program continues to provide solutions to 
future science and defense mission needs before program 
problems or requirements are even realized.
    Building on extensive understanding of radiation transport, 
LDRD efforts successfully developed a method for simulating 
dose response in radiation treatment of cancer. This system, 
dubbed Peregrine, has been licensed and approved by the FDA, 
and is currently in use for treating patients. The technology 
is a substantial improvement over previous approaches, 
providing more precise targeting of cancerous cells with 
radiation therapy, lowering the overall dose to the patient, 
and protecting healthy tissue from unnecessary exposure. LDRD 
research has resulted in systems for detecting biological and 
chemical warfare agents which have been deployed in recent 
combat zones. Specifically, Sniffer-Star has as its core 
technology the ``chem-lab-on-a-chip'' developed under the LDRD 
program, and has been flown over combat areas on un-manned 
aerial vehicles, ensuring that these areas were safe for our 
troops.
    The LDRD program provides the Nation the flexibility needed 
to support various research activities that result in many 
additional scientific breakthroughs and advances that would not 
have occurred otherwise, since DOE program funding is limited 
in its ability to fund these critical research efforts. 
Limiting the amount of funding provided to this program is 
counter-intuitive to the continued strength of American science 
and defense programs in the long run, and the Committee 
strongly resists any penny-wise but pound-foolish calls to 
arbitrarily limit the amounts provided for LDRD.
    As currently structured, the LDRD program ensures that a 
very small fraction of the laboratories' budgets are invested 
in innovative research and new ideas that are relevant to the 
missions of DOE/NNSA and the laboratories. In fact, the current 
funding level for the LDRD program is relatively small compared 
to the overall laboratory and Departmental budgets, but the 
program has been able to produce significant scientific and 
technical results that benefit the Nation's science and defense 
missions, and the Committee is hard-pressed to think of another 
program that produces results as beneficial to the taxpayer 
with such a paltry amount of funds. In this regard, the 
Committee is concerned that the current funding ceiling for the 
LDRD program is not adequate to continue to achieve the 
objectives of the program. Therefore, we recommend the LDRD 
funding ceiling be raised to effectively meet the increasing 
challenges faced by the laboratories to maintain their critical 
scientific competencies and attract and retain the best and 
brightest scientists. The new LDRD funding ceiling shall now be 
set at 8 percent (up from the current 6 percent) and PDRD and 
SDRD shall now be set at 4 percent (up from the current 2 
percent) and continue to be annually approved by the 
Department.
    Further, the Committee would like to compliment the 
Department for its strong and effective management of the LDRD 
program. The Department has been subject to several internal 
and external reviews over the last 5 years which have indicated 
the LDRD program continues to be well-managed by the 
Department. In fact, the most recent GAO review specifically 
indicated that DOE has implemented procedures for the LDRD 
program to ensure compliance with existing laws. The report 
also states that the GAO contacted the CFO and/or General 
Counsel of six Federal agencies and ``each agency told us that 
the LDRD program's inclusion as an indirect cost does not limit 
their ability to comply with their agency's statutory or 
appropriations requirements. Similarly, none of the research 
managers and/or contracting officers at the agencies expressed 
concern about the LDRD program or its funding method.'' The 
White House Federal Laboratory Review Panel (called the Packard 
Panel) recommended the Federal laboratories conduct 
discretionary research programs at the 5-10 percent level with 
appropriate Federal oversight. The Panel's report also states:

    ``If U.S. taxpayers are to get the most return from their 
support of R&D;, government laboratories must have sufficient 
discretionary funding for independent research and development. 
Almost every laboratory has found that the most important 
innovation often comes from the scientists' independent ideas 
or actions. Thus the productivity of the U.S. R&D; establishment 
depends on a vigorous independent R&D; program.''

    Over the years, LDRD-funded research has resulted in many 
scientific breakthroughs and advances, benefiting and 
furthering not only DOE's mission, but the missions of all 
sponsors of work at the laboratories. LDRD is a cost of doing 
business at the laboratories, and the Department should 
continue to ensure its laboratories distribute LDRD as indirect 
costs, in accordance with cost accounting standards [CAS], to 
all work performed at its laboratories. The Department must 
maintain a funding mechanism that is: (1) stable, to ensure the 
laboratories continue to perform long-term, fundamental 
research--which is among their most distinctive contributions 
to the Nation; (2) flexible because of the uniqueness of each 
institution; (3) equitable for all customers; and (4) 
consistent with cost accounting standards in order to allocate 
expenses to cost objectives that cause, or benefit from, the 
expenses in accordance with CAS (a model consistent with 
government contracts placed with private industry). The 
Committee supports the current method for accumulating LDRD 
program dollars and believes that it is a fair and equitable 
approach to funding the program. Therefore, funds provided in 
Title III of this Act may be used to finance the total cost of 
work performed for other Federal sponsors, including LDRD 
costs, until they are reimbursed through the Department's 
normal billing and collection processes.
    Given the evidence reiterating the well managed LDRD 
program and the public benefits it provides, the Committee 
strongly supports the LDRD program as currently structured and 
managed by the Department, and specifically rejects the program 
changes suggested by the House Committee on Appropriations in 
their report (House Report 109-86) accompanying the fiscal year 
2006 Energy and Water Appropriations bill. The Department and 
its laboratories have clearly demonstrated the need for the 
LDRD program to continue. The Committee recognizes LDRD as a 
legitimate cost for keeping the laboratories vibrant, cutting 
edge and creative in ideas and new fields, and thereby benefits 
all customers using the DOE laboratories as well as the DOE and 
its missions. For the future of the Department and its 
laboratories, the Committee suggests that the Secretary of 
Energy should consider expanding the LDRD program to other DOE 
laboratories to further enhance the clear benefits of the 
program.
    The Committee recognizes that scientific discovery does not 
always coincide with the annul budget cycles and promising 
scientific discovery occasionally fails to capture the 
attention of this Committee. The LDRD program will continue to 
provide scientists the best opportunity to pursue discoveries 
as they develop, regardless if it was never contemplated by the 
Congress or the Office of Management and Budget. The Committee 
strongly endorses the LDRD program, as authorized, to ensure 
researchers sufficient funding and flexibility to pursue useful 
and relevant scientific discovery.

                     Energy Supply and Conservation

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $1,806,936,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   1,749,446,000
House allowance.........................................   1,763,888,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,945,330,000

    The purposes of the programs funded under Energy Supply are 
to develop new energy technologies and improve existing energy 
technologies through basic and applied research and targeted 
programs in technology development. This account provides funds 
for both operating expenses and capital equipment for the 
advancement of the various energy technologies.
    The Energy Supply and Conservation account includes the 
following programs: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, 
Nuclear Energy, Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy 
Reliability, Environment, Safety and Health (non-defense) and 
Legacy Management. Energy Conservation programs previously 
funded by the Interior and Related Agencies Appropriations Act 
are now funded by the Energy Supply and Conservation 
appropriation, and are combined with energy efficiency 
activities in the Energy Supply and Conservation activities. 
These funds shall remain available until expended.

            ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND RENEWABLE ENERGY PROGRAMS

    The Committee recommendation provides $1,253,819,000 for 
renewable energy resources, an increase of $53,405,000 from the 
current year level.
    This program undertakes research and development of 
renewable energy and related technologies to meet the growing 
need for clean and affordable energy. Program activities range 
from basic research in universities and national laboratories 
to cost-shared applied research, development, and field 
validation in partnership with the private sector.
    The recommendation for Renewable Energy Resources reflects 
the Committee's strong belief that only a balanced portfolio of 
production and distribution technologies and strategies will 
fulfill our Nation's long-term needs and goals for both energy 
and the environment. The Committee continues to support the 
efforts of the National Center on Energy Management and 
Building Technologies to improve energy efficiency in 
buildings. The Committee directs that this project shall be 
subject to the cost-sharing requirements of a research project 
rather than a demonstration project and directs the Department 
to continue to fund this project at the fiscal year 2005 level 
of $5,000,000.
    Hydrogen Research.--As a key component of the President's 
Hydrogen Fuel Initiative, this program develops hydrogen 
production, storage and delivery technologies that are more 
energy efficient, cleaner, safer and lower in cost. The long-
term aim is to develop hydrogen technologies that will allow 
the Nation to aggressively move forward to achieve a vision of 
a cleaner, more secure energy future. Current research will 
facilitate a decision by industry to commercialize hydrogen-
powered fuel cell vehicles by 2015.
    As such, the Committee recommendation includes $182,694,000 
for hydrogen research, which is consistent with the request and 
$13,188,000 above the current year level. The Committee also 
directs the Department to provide the budget request for 
Hydrogen Storage Centers of Excellence.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of DOE's 
``Controlled Hydrogen Fleet and Infrastructure Demonstration 
Validation Program'' for further development of hydrogen 
technology to meet our Nation's energy needs. This 
demonstration program is unique in that for the first time 
vehicles and energy infrastructure are integrated in real world 
settings that serve as test laboratories. The DOE requires 
extensive data collection and sharing that will be used to help 
advance this technology towards commercialization. The 
demonstration program requires full cost sharing. The Committee 
specifically provides $14,900,000 for infrastructure and 
$24,000,000 for vehicles for the demonstration projects as 
requested in the Department's fiscal year 2006 budget.
    Industrial consumption of hydrogen, especially by the 
petro-chemical and fertilizer communities is large and growing. 
The rate of petro-chemical hydrogen consumption necessary for 
gasoline-powered vehicles will accelerate as global reserves of 
sweet crude oil diminish. The dominant resource for hydrogen 
production today is natural gas whose reformation into hydrogen 
and carbon dioxide contributes significantly to atmospheric 
greenhouse gases. Moreover, natural gas reserves are 
insufficient to service simultaneously domestic heating and 
electricity requirements, industrial hydrogen consumption, and 
future demands by hydrogen powered vehicles and other fuel cell 
applications that would accompany the future ``Hydrogen 
Economy.'' Thus, the Committee recommendation seeks to focus 
the resources of the initiative on developing the most 
economical means of producing hydrogen from renewable sources 
and nuclear power. In addition, the Committee supports the 
recommendations of the National Academy of Science, and 
requests that the Department integrate their recommendations 
into the program. The Committee is aware of an ethanol-to-
hydrogen fueling station and vehicle demonstration project in 
Chicago and encourages the Department to provide appropriate 
technical and financial assistance.
    For the UNLV Research Foundation the Committee 
recommendation includes $4,000,000 to continue evaluation of 
solar-powered thermochemical production of hydrogen and 
$4,000,000 for on-going hydrogen fuel cell and storage research 
and development.
    Biomass/Biofuels--Energy Systems.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $92,164,000 for biomass/biofuels energy 
systems, an increase of $20,000,000 above the request.
    The Committee believes that the Regional Biomass Energy 
Program [RBEP] has been a successful partnership with the five 
distinct regions it has served. The Committee recommendation 
includes $15,000,000 for product development for the State and 
Regional Partnership Activity, of which $11,000,000 shall be 
provided to establish the Southeastern Center at Mississippi 
State University to support regional biomass research and 
development efforts and identify the best commercial 
opportunities in the Southeast for the use of biofuels and 
biomass to reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources. 
Within the funds provided, the Committee recommends $5,000,000, 
the amount of the budget request, for the Pacific Northwest 
National Laboratory to sustain the bioproducts program focused 
on catalysis and fungal biotechnology for replacing petroleum 
derived chemicals and materials.
    The Committee recommendation also includes $4,000,000 for 
the Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research, a successful 
consortium of 34 universities and 33 agribusinesses and trade 
associations.
    Geothermal.--The Committee recommends $23,299,000 for 
geothermal technology development, the same as the request, 
including continued funding (at current year levels) for 
GeoPowering the West. The Committee recommendation also 
includes $1,300,000 for the Geothermal and Renewable Energy 
Laboratory of Nevada; $500,000 to continue funding of 
operations at the GeoHeat Center at Oregon Institute of 
Technology; and $500,000 for the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe 
Energy Project.
    Hydropower.--The Committee recommends $500,000 for 
hydropower, the same as the budget request.
    Solar Energy.--The Committee recommendation for solar 
energy programs is $83,953,000.
    The Committee recommendation includes $2,000,000 for the 
Southeast and Southwest photovoltaic experiment stations. The 
Committee recommends $1,200,000 for Sandia National 
Laboratories for the development of advanced cells and modules 
using ultra-thin back-contact multicrystalline-silicon solar 
cells employing micromachining. The Department should continue 
to fully support the public/private Million Solar Roofs 
initiative or another effective solar deployment program. The 
Committee recommendation includes $11,000,000 from within 
available funds for concentrating solar power, including 
$5,000,000 to validate the commercial viability by supporting a 
one megawatt demonstration at Sandia National Laboratory for 
dish concentrating solar power.
    Wind.--The Committee recommendation includes $34,249,000 
for wind energy systems. The Committee recognizes that wind 
energy has succeeded in penetrating the energy markets as a 
cost-effective renewable energy resource. Between 1990 and 
2003, the United States added 6,347 MW of wind-based generating 
capacity. The Committee concurs with the assessment of the 
Government Accountability Office in its September 2004 report 
(GAO-04-756) that noted that the driving factor behind wind 
deployment is the production of tax credit.
    The budget request also provides support for offshore wind 
research and development. Due to Federal regulatory uncertainty 
in permitting offshore facilities, the Committee recommends 
that the Department not expend any funds to support offshore 
wind energy research until the Federal rules and permitting 
requirements are implemented through legislation. In addition, 
the Committee recognizes that the intermittent nature of wind 
energy has made interconnection to the electricity grid a 
barrier to entry. The Committee supports Federal efforts to 
integrate renewable energy, but believes this activity is 
better suited to the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy 
Reliability.
    Vehicles Technology.--This program was previously funded in 
the Energy Conservation account in the Interior and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act, and now is funded within the 
Energy Supply and Conservation account of this Act. The mission 
of the Vehicle Technologies Program is to develop more energy 
efficient and environmentally friendly highway transportation 
technologies that will enable America to use significantly less 
petroleum. The long-term aim is to develop ``leapfrog'' 
technologies that through improvements in vehicle energy 
efficiency will provide Americans with continuing freedom of 
mobility and greater energy security, at lower costs and with 
lower impacts on the environment than current vehicles. The 
program focuses its research and development investments 
specifically on potential technology improvements that have 
uncertain or long-term outcomes, yet have significant public 
benefit. The high risks associated with these projects make it 
unlikely that they would be pursued by industry alone. The 
Committee recommends $199,943,000, an increase of $34,000,000 
above the request. The Committee includes $15,000,000 above the 
budget request for the Oak Ridge National Lab to be divided 
evenly between materials development and computational modeling 
to develop more energy efficient and environmentally friendly 
highway transportation technologies. The Committee provides an 
additional $4,500,000 for the CAVS Center located at 
Mississippi State University. The Committee also recommends an 
additional $2,600,000 to support the VULCAN beam line. Within 
available funds, $2,000,000 is provided for the Transportable 
Emissions Testing Laboratory; $1,000,000 is provided for the 
lightweight composite materials for heavy duty vehicles 
program; and $500,000 is provided for the hydrogen natural gas 
vehicles cylinder safety, inspection and maintenance program. 
The Committee recommendation includes $3,500,000, the same as 
current year, for the Off-Highway Program. The Committee 
expects the Department to fund the Automotive Lightweight 
Vehicles program account at the President's request of 
$18,000,000. The Committee recommends $12,000,000 for support 
of natural gas fueled vehicles. The Committee recognizes the 
Department's cooperative turbocharger research and development 
program and its contribution to increasing fuel efficiency in 
diesel engines. The Committee urges the continuation of the 
turbocharger initiative and seeks to facilitate the integration 
of such technology into engine and vehicle designs.
    The Committee recognizes the need to ensure that materials 
research funding within the vehicles technology program 
supports strategic advances in science and innovation and the 
long-term competitiveness of U.S. industry. The Committee 
directs DOE to expand research in the area of computational 
predictive engineering and testing of lightweight thermoplastic 
polymer composites as an enabling technology supporting the 
future design and manufacture of safer, more fuel efficient, 
and lower emissions vehicles competitive in global markets. In 
addition, the Committee acknowledges the important work in this 
area being undertaken by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory 
and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in cooperation with the 
American Plastics Council.
    Building Technologies.--This program was previously funded 
in the Energy Conservation account in the Interior and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act, and now is funded within the 
Energy Supply and Conservation account of this Act. The 
Building Technologies program aims to reduce energy use in 
homes and commercial buildings by developing advanced lighting 
and appliances which, when coupled with improved building 
design, will yield maximum results. The Committee recommends 
$67,000,000, which includes $22,000,000 for lighting R&D;, an 
increase of $5,000,000 to support through this office and the 
Office of Science a National Center for Solid State Lighting 
Research affiliated with the Center for Integrated 
Nanotechnologies. The Committee recommendation also includes 
$20,000,000, an increase of $2,250,000 above the request, for 
Residential Buildings Research. The Committee notes there are a 
number of proposed activities within the Building Technologies 
program that seek to reduce electricity through demand side 
management. The Secretary should consider transferring these 
activities to the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy 
Reliability. At a minimum, the Committee directs the Department 
to provide the Committee with a brief report on how the 
research between the two programs will add value to both 
programs and not needlessly duplicate research efforts. The 
Committee recommendation includes a $4,000,000 increase for 
Thermal Energy Technologies. Within the $12,000,000 
recommended, $4,000,000 is for gas engine-driven heat pump 
development; $2,000,000 shall be used to complete the on-going 
Ammonia Absorption Technology Development for HVAC&R; activity; 
$2,500,000 shall be available for a CHP engineering prototype & 
field test activity of ammonia absorption technology; Desiccant 
research shall be continued at a level of $1,500,000; and heat 
and mass transfer activities shall be continued at a level of 
$2,000,000.
    Industrial Technologies.--This program was previously 
funded in the Energy Conservation account in the Interior and 
Related Agencies Appropriations Act, and now is funded within 
the Energy Supply and Conservation account of this Act. The 
Industrial Technologies program aims to develop more efficient 
industrial processes in energy intensive industries through the 
cost-sharing of research. The Committee recommends $56,489,000.

                   FEDERAL ENERGY MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

    This program was previously funded in the Energy 
Conservation account in the Interior and Related Agencies 
Appropriations Act, and now is funded within the Energy Supply 
and Conservation account of this act. The Federal Energy 
Management Program advances energy efficiency and use of 
renewable energy in Federal buildings through financial and 
technical assistance and project evaluation. The Committee 
recommends $17,147,000 for Federal Energy Management Programs.

                     FACILITIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE

    The Committee recommendation for Facilities and 
Infrastructure is $16,315,000. The recommendation includes 
$5,800,000 for operation and maintenance of facilities and 
$10,515,000 for construction of Project 04-E-001, Science and 
Technology Facility, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, 
Golden, Colorado.

            WEATHERIZATION AND INTERGOVERNMENTAL ACTIVITIES

    The mission of the Weatherization and Intergovernmental 
Program is to develop and accelerate the adoption of energy 
efficiency, renewable energy, and oil displacement technologies 
and practices by a wide range of stakeholders. These include 
State and local governments, weatherization agencies, 
communities, companies, fleet managers, building code 
officials, technology developers, Native American tribal 
governments, and international agencies. This program was 
previously funded in the Energy Conservation account in the 
Interior and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, and now is 
funded within the Energy Supply and Conservation account of 
this Act. The Committee recommends $240,000,000 for 
weatherization assistance program grants, an increase of 
$15,000,000 above the request, $4,600,000 for training and 
technical assistance, $41,000,000 for State energy program 
grants, $500,000 for State energy activities, and $26,657,000 
for gateway deployment. The Committee recommends that gateway 
deployment funds be distributed as follows: $6,571,000 for 
Rebuild America; $350,000 for energy efficiency information and 
outreach; $4,550,000 for building codes training and 
assistance; $6,510,000 for Clean Cities; $5,776,000 for Energy 
Star; and $2,400,000 for inventions and innovations. The 
intergovernmental total includes $2,910,000 for the 
International Renewable Energy program to promote the use of 
renewable energy resources in international markets. The 
Committee directs the Department to avoid using funds 
appropriated to the International Renewable Energy Program to 
fund domestic programs and projects. From within the funds 
provided, the Committee recommendation includes $5,000,000 for 
the Renewable Energy Production Incentive [REPI]. The 
Intergovernmental total includes $4,000,000 for the tribal 
energy program to help Native Americans develop renewable 
energy resources on their lands and help tribal leaders develop 
energy plans. Within the funds provided to the tribal energy 
program, the Committee includes $1,000,000 for the Council of 
Renewable Energy Resource Tribes [CERT] to provide technical 
expertise and training of Native Americans in renewable energy 
resource development and electric generation facilities 
management.
    The Committee provides $600,000 above the President's 
request, to be made available to the Office of International 
Energy Market Development in the Department of Energy to carry 
out a program in support of the multi-agency Clean Energy 
Technology Exports Initiative.
    Program Support.--The Committee recommendation for Program 
Support is $9,456,000, the same as the budget request. The 
Committee recommendation includes $4,000,000 to continue the 
efforts of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory [NREL] to 
develop renewable energy resources uniquely suited to the 
Southwestern United States through its virtual site office in 
Nevada.
    Program Direction.--The Committee recommendation for 
Program Direction is $86,524,000.
    Regional Offices.--The Committee recognizes and applauds 
EERE's efforts to strengthen project management through its 
creation of the EERE Project Management Center [PMC] and notes 
that the National Academy for Public Administration has 
identified it as a best management practice in the Department 
of Energy. To accelerate and strengthen its development, the 
Committee directs that the six Regional Offices be consolidated 
into the PMC locations at the Golden Field Office and the 
National Energy Technology Laboratory. To allow for an orderly 
implementation, contract close-out and personnel relocations, 
the Committee provides that this consolidation be fully 
implemented by June 1, 2006. The Office of Energy Efficiency 
and Renewable Energy originally established 10 regional offices 
in 1973 in response to the Arab Oil Embargo. The original 
function of the offices was to coordinate gasoline and 
petroleum allocations to distributors and resellers and to 
promote energy conservation. They were located in what used to 
be standard Federal Regions. In addition to the current 
regional offices in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, 
Philadelphia, and Seattle, offices were located in San 
Francisco/Oakland, Kansas City, New York City, and Dallas. In 
1996, as part of Secretary O'Leary's Strategic Realignment 
Initiative, regional offices in San Francisco, Dallas, Kansas 
City and New York City were closed and the programmatic 
responsibilities of those offices were distributed among the 
remaining regions. In order to support weatherization 
assistance, the Committee recommends the Department close the 
remaining offices and develop a more cost effective outreach 
plan that minimizes the impact on employees. The Committee has 
reserved 20 percent for necessary close-out cost and severance 
payments. The Committee recognizes this is a Presidential 
priority and is confident the distribution of the formula based 
grants will not be negatively impacted. The Committee will 
apply $15,000,000 toward weatherization grants.
    Congressionally Directed Projects.--The Committee 
recommendation includes the following congressionally directed 
projects. The Committee has provided sufficient funding to 
cover the cost of these additions so as not to impact essential 
research.

Electric Transmission and Distribution

    Consistent with the direction from Congress in fiscal year 
2005, this office has merged the old Offices of Transmission 
and Distribution and Energy Assurance to create this entity. 
The office has responsibility for modernizing our national 
electric grid to increase reliability and security and respond 
to widespread interruption or failure in our energy 
infrastructure. Without enforcement authority, this office will 
find numerous challenges in trying to lead a national reform 
effort. However, this office must support investment in 
research and development initiatives such as high temperature 
superconductivity and next generation wire, in areas where 
utilities or State regulatory authorities are unlikely to 
support such investment. These technological developments have 
the potential to drastically increase line capacity and serve 
areas that are currently transmission constrained as a result 
of either an unwillingness or inability to increase 
transmission capacity. This office should also take the lead in 
working to integrate alternative technologies such as 
distributed generation and renewable energy sources into the 
grid for the Department of Energy. This office also has the 
responsibility for understanding and correcting vulnerabilities 
in our energy transmission infrastructure. Drawing on the 
technical expertise of our national laboratories through 
testing on Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition [SCADA] 
systems this office should identify and support the deployment 
of a technology based architecture that will reduce the 
vulnerability of our energy infrastructure at both a cyber and 
physical level.
    The Committee provides $178,083,000 for the Office of 
Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, an increase of 
$82,479,000 over the budget request.
    Research and Development.--The Committee provides 
$128,386,000, an increase of $56,629,000 above the budget 
request. This increase is a result of transferring the 
Distributed Generation program to the Office of Electricity 
Reliability and Energy Assurance.
    The Committee recommends $50,500,000 for continued 
development of high temperature superconductivity [HTS], which 
promises to revolutionize electrical generation, transmission 
and distribution, conditioning and, ultimately, consumption. 
This is an increase of $5,500,000.
    The Committee recommends eliminating funding for Gridwise 
and Gridworks and has shifted this funding to the R&D; budget to 
support superconductivity research and transmission 
reliability. The Committee recommends $5,000,000 to conduct 
research and development at the National Energy Technology 
Laboratory associated with electricity transmission, 
distribution and energy assurance activities. Additionally, 
$2,500,000 shall be for the continued development of an energy 
information training facility at Camp Dawson, and related 
activities. The Committee recommendation also includes 
$1,000,000 for the integrated control of next generation power 
systems project at West Virginia University. The Committee 
provides $10,000,000 to support critical research at SCADA test 
facilities. The funds are to be equally divided between the 
Sandia and Idaho National Labs.
    The Distributed Energy and Electricity Reliability 
Program.--This program was previously funded in the Energy 
Conservation account in the Interior and Related Agencies 
Appropriations Act, and is now funded within the Office of 
Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability [OE] account within 
this Act. The activities within this account complement the 
mission of OE and are consistent with the research and 
development initiatives related to advanced composite 
conductors and high temperature superconductive cable and wire. 
If the distributed generation platform is to be successfully 
deployed it must be integrated into the electricity 
transmission and distribution network, which is a primary 
responsibility for the Office of Electricity Delivery and 
Energy Reliability. This program has been merged with the 
Electricity distribution transformation R&D; program and the 
Committee recommends $64,666,000 to support these activities. 
Both programs are funded at the requested level. The Committee 
urges the Secretary to reorganize these activities as 
appropriate in the fiscal year 2007 budget request.
    The Committee is aware that program managers with the 
Distributed Energy Program have failed to adequately support 
the telecommunications sector that has high electric power 
requirements and represents a critical element in our first 
response needs during emergencies. The Committee directs the 
Department to provide $3,000,000 for deployment testing and 
analysis of advanced energy storage systems for 
telecommunication applications in Kansas.
    Program Direction.--The Committee recommends $15,477,000, 
an additional $4,000,000 for Program Direction to support the 
transition of staff to this new office and to properly align 
staff and mission responsibilities.
    Congressionally Directed Projects.--The Committee 
recommendation includes the following congressional directed 
projects. The Committee has provided sufficient funding to 
cover the cost of these additions so as not to impact essential 
research.
  --$5,000,000 for Hawaii/New Mexico Sustainable Energy 
        Security Partnership [OE];
  --$2,000,000 for the Navajo Electrification Project, NM [OE];
  --$2,350,000 for Load Control System Reliability, MT [OE];
  --$10,000,000 for SCADA test beds in New Mexico and Idaho 
        [OE];
  --$2,500,000 for advancing AC- and DC-power communications, 
        OH [OE];
  --$2,000,000 for Grid Computing in KY and its Impact of 
        Research and Education Project [OE];
  --$1,500,000 to University of Missouri-Rolla for electric 
        grid modernization [OE]; and
  --$1,000,000 for the Integrated Distribution Management 
        System in Alabama [OE].

                        NUCLEAR ENERGY PROGRAMS

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $385,568,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     389,906,000
House allowance.........................................     377,701,000
Committee recommendation................................     449,906,000

    The Committee recommendation provides $449,906,000 for 
nuclear energy, an increase of $60,000,000 above the request.
    University Reactor Fuel Assistance and Support.--The 
Committee recommends $24,000,000 for university reactor fuel 
assistance and support. The Committee recommends $4,500,000 
from within available funds for the Institute of Nuclear 
Science and Engineering at the Idaho National Laboratory.
    University nuclear engineering programs and university 
research reactors represent a fundamental and key capability in 
supporting our national policy goals in health physics, 
materials science and energy technology. The Committee strongly 
supports the University Reactor Fuel Assistance and Support 
program's efforts to provide fellowships, scholarships, and 
grants to students enrolled in nuclear energy, science and 
engineering programs and related areas like health physics at 
U.S. universities, as well as efforts to provide fuel 
assistance and reactor upgrade funding for university-owned 
research reactors.
    The Committee remains concerned about the ability of the 
Nation to respond to the growing demand for trained experts in 
nuclear science and technology in the face of financial and 
other challenges affecting engineering programs and research 
reactor facilities at American universities.
    The Committee strongly endorses the administration's 
commitment to cooperate with the People's Republic of China in 
its expansion of nuclear power. The Committee believes that the 
deployment of advanced U.S. reactor technology is critical to 
meet the growing energy demands in China and to contribute to 
improved air quality.

                        RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommendation for nuclear energy research 
and development includes a total of $251,000,000, an increase 
of $60,000,000 over the budget request.
    Nuclear Energy Research Initiative.--The Committee strongly 
supports the NERI program. Consistent with the goals of the 
November 1997 President's Committee of Advisors on Science and 
Technology [PCAST] that addresses energy research, the 
Committee directs the Department to maintain the existing, 
stand-alone NERI program that provides funding to peer-reviewed 
projects proposed by national laboratories, universities and 
industry on issues facing the nuclear energy industry. As 
provided in the PCAST report, research topics should include 
research into developing a proliferation resistant fuel cycle, 
improvements to reactor designs of new and existing designs, 
increased efficiency, as well as better knowledge of materials 
and fuel characteristics to support the Next Generation Nuclear 
Plant and Generation IV programs. The Committee is aware that 
the budget proposes to merge the NERI funding into the various 
research and development programs. The Committee concurs with 
the request and provides NERI funding in the following manner: 
$4,000,000 within the Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative; 
$4,000,000 within the Generation IV program; and $2,000,000 for 
Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative.
    Nuclear Power 2010.--The recommendation includes 
$76,000,000 for nuclear power 2010. The Department is directed 
to focus the resources on the demonstration of the regulatory 
licensing processes of 10 CFR Part 52 for early site permits, 
design certifications, and combined construction and operating 
licenses. This is to be cost-shared with industrial and 
governmental entities.
    The Committee recommendation supports demonstration of key 
regulatory approval processes in order to encourage the 
deployment of new, advanced nuclear plants in the United States 
by the 2010 timeframe. The strong industry response to the 
Department's request for proposals for a Combined Operating 
License is a turning point in the future of nuclear energy in 
the country and presents the Department with a unique 
opportunity to facilitate the deployment of one or more new 
nuclear plants in a generation. Support for such a program is 
critical in order to diversify our electric generation fuel 
supply with the added benefit of not producing any greenhouse 
gas emissions.
    Generation IV.--The recommendation includes $60,000,000 for 
the Generation IV nuclear energy systems initiative, an 
increase of $15,000,000 over the request. The Committee directs 
$40,000,000 to be used for the Next Generation Nuclear Plant 
[NGNP] program. Prior to the submission of this budget the 
Office of Nuclear Energy had worked expeditiously on a process 
to select a reactor design from a competitive solicitation in 
order to deploy and test the design at the Idaho National 
Laboratory where it will serve as a test bed for electric and 
hydrogen cogeneration. The Department had received a strong 
response to the expression of interest and was preparing a 
request for proposal. Unfortunately, the current budget 
recommendation fails to adequately support the Next Generation 
Nuclear Plant. The Committee is concerned that the 
administration's strategy of collaborative international 
research lacks sufficient focus and doesn't support a specific 
schedule to facilitate the construction of a next generation 
reactor at the Idaho National Lab. The Generation IV budget 
should be used as an initiative to build and demonstrate new 
technologies and rebuild U.S. nuclear capabilities as opposed 
to the current proposal of indefinite research.
    This funding shall be used to support a design competition 
conducted by DOE as well as fund R&D; efforts linked to the NGNP 
program. The Committee urges the Department to complete the 
competition by the end of fiscal year 2006. The Committee 
expects the Department to submit a budget for fiscal year 2007 
that will fund a pre-engineering design that is consistent with 
the goal of testing hydrogen production or electricity 
generation by 2017 at Idaho National Laboratory. The Committee 
encourages the Department to give priority consideration to 
fast spectrum technologies. Coupled with efforts of the 
Advanced Fuel Cycle initiative, research in this program must 
keep nonproliferation as a primary objective to reduce the 
amount of plutonium and other high level wastes that are a by-
product of current technology. The Committee also recognizes 
that new advances in materials and fuels must be developed 
before these technologies can be deployed. In addition, the 
Department shall develop a R&D; road map by which the Department 
identifies the current technical challenges, proposes a 
research and development plan to resolve existing fast spectrum 
challenges within the Generation IV program, and downselects to 
no more than two technologies by the end of fiscal year 2007. 
The Department shall provide a copy of the Generation IV R&D; 
roadmap to the Committee by the end of fiscal year 2006.
    The Committee remains interested in the potential use and 
application of small modular reactors that would be inherently 
safe, be relatively cost effective, contain intrinsic design 
features which would deter sabotage or diversion, require 
infrequent refuelings, and be primarily factory constructed and 
deliverable to remote sites. The Committee is particularly 
interested in design of a small modular fast reactor that can 
serve as both a test bed for small commercial reactors and to 
test fast spectrum technologies. Within available funds, 
$5,000,000 is provided for the development of high temperature 
fuel fabrication capabilities in Virginia, in support of the 
Generation IV program, under the direction of the Idaho 
National Laboratory.
    Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative.--The Committee recommendation 
includes $30,000,000, an increase of $10,000,000.
    The Committee provides an additional $7,000,000 above the 
budget request for the Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative to 
accelerate essential materials research and development and 
component design, test and evaluation for implementing the high 
temperature sulfur-iodine water spitting process for hydrogen 
production necessary to the advanced reactor hydrogen co-
generation project at Idaho National Laboratory. In addition, 
the Department is directed to establish a 5-year Cooperative 
Agreement with the UNLV Research Foundation for advanced 
Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative materials research and development.
    Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $85,000,000, an increase of $15,000,000 
over the budget request. The initiative should continue to 
focus on development of fuel cycle technologies that minimize 
the toxicity of final waste products resulting from spent fuel 
while recovering energy remaining in spent fuel; minimize 
proliferation concerns and environmental impacts of the fuel 
cycle and minimize the number of reprocessing steps so as to 
minimize system costs. The initiative shall assist the 
Secretary with development of alternative technology options.
    Based on the success learned at the Savannah River 
Technology Center of the Uranium Extraction Technology, known 
as UREX in 2002, the Committee expects the Department to expand 
its efforts to advance research of aqueous spent fuel treatment 
and to begin the engineering scale demonstrations. The 
Committee recommends an additional $10,000,000 to accelerate 
the design activities associated with a proposed Engineering 
Scale Demonstration [ESD]. The ESD will provide the United 
States with the capability to conduct research and development 
into advanced spent fuel separations and transmutation from 
laboratory scale through engineering scale prior to commercial 
deployment. The budget request provided funds for pre-
conceptual design activities only. This funding will allow 
completion of the conceptual design in fiscal year 2006 and 
enable preengineering design to commence in fiscal year 2007. 
In addition to studying light water reactors, the Committee 
expects the Department to evaluate fast reactors that are 
capable of destroying larger amounts of long-lived radioactive 
material.
    To provide confidence in the technology options proposed, 
the project will use Department of Energy national laboratory 
and university expertise to perform research and development of 
advanced technologies for spent fuel treatment and 
transmutation of plutonium, higher actinides and long-lived 
fission products. Advanced nuclear material recycle and 
safeguard technologies, proliferation-resistant nuclear fuels, 
and transmutation systems shall be investigated. Both reactor-
based and a combination of reactor and accelerator-based 
transmutation approaches may be included as part of the 
research and systems analysis.
    The project shall use international and university 
collaborations to provide cost effective use of research 
funding. The Committee has provided an additional $6,000,000 to 
the Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative for the UNLV Research 
Foundation and directs the Department to enter into a 5-year 
cooperative agreement to study deep burn-up of nuclear fuel and 
other fuel cycle research to eliminate the need for multiple 
spent nuclear fuel repositories, to eliminate weapons useable 
material from disposed spent fuel, and to maintain forever 
potential radiological releases from a repository below 
currently legislated limits.
    The Committee is aware of the excellent recent progress in 
the jointly funded U.S./Russian program to develop the GT-MHR. 
The recent completion of the particle fuel fabrication and 
testing facilities in Russia along with continued progress in 
the area of the power conversion system indicates the continued 
support of the Russians for the development of this option. The 
Committee also notes that the GT-MHR is a leading Gen IV 
reactor type. Within the Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative, 
$3,000,000 is provided for the Idaho Accelerator Center and the 
Department is directed to enter into a 5-year cooperative 
agreement with IAC. The Department is provided $7,000,000 to 
develop a Nuclear Energy Materials Test Station at Los Alamos 
Neutron Science Center to advance the technology needed to 
support the materials and fuel experiments required by the 
Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative and for the exploration of 
Generation IV fast neutron spectrum systems. Since the closure 
of the Fast Flux Test Facility, resulting in no domestic fast 
neutron source for conducting actinide transmutation, the 
Materials Test Station will advance the development of improved 
fuel cycles that can reduce the quantity, heat generation and 
toxicity of spent nuclear fuel. The Committee recommendation 
includes $1,000,000 for the Center for Materials Reliability 
and $750,000 for nuclear transportation hazard research at the 
University of Nevada-Reno.
    The Committee is aware of the fact that the Department is 
responsible for the maintenance of 62 metric tons of sodium 
bonded spent nuclear fuel located in Idaho. Of these amounts, 
the Office of Environmental Management manages 34 tons (55 
percent of the total) from the Detroit Edison Fermi plant which 
is stored at the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering 
Center. The remaining 28 tons (45 percent) is from the 
Experimental Breeder Reactor-II and is managed by the Office of 
Nuclear Energy, AFCI program. The AFCI program spends 
$18,000,000 annually to maintain this stockpile, funding that 
could be more effectively used to explore critical materials 
and fuels research and development. The EBR-II reactor fuel 
adds little to the AFCI program, which is focused on Generation 
IV fuel types such as nitride fuels, and not solid metal fuels 
such as the EBR-II fuels. The AFCI program only needs 3 percent 
of the inventory for future pyroprocessing experiments. The 
Committee directs the Department to undertake a study to 
evaluate and propose a disposal solution for the entire 62 tons 
of sodium bonded spent fuel and to consider what minimal amount 
of fuel is needed for future experiments under the AFCI. The 
Department shall provide a report recommending the preferred 
disposal pathway to the Committee no later than March 1, 2006.

                         FACILITIES MANAGEMENT

    Radiological Facilities Management.--The Committee 
recommends $64,800,000. The purpose of this program is to 
maintain the critical user facilities in a safe, 
environmentally compliant and cost-effective manner to support 
national priorities in serving our space missions or medical 
fields. Facilities located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, 
Los Alamos, Sandia, Brookhaven and Idaho National Labs all 
support this mission. The Committee supports the ongoing 
efforts at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The Committee 
recommends the investment of $1,300,000 in new equipment for 
Los Alamos National Lab and $12,700,000 provided to operate the 
bench-scale scrap recovery line and to address the long-term 
storage and disposal of waste residues.
    Idaho National Lab.--This program funds the site-wide 
landlord infrastructure activities for the Idaho National 
Laboratory. These activities are required to support the 
laboratory's technical efforts such as research on the Advanced 
Fuel Cycle Initiative, Generation IV nuclear energy systems, 
the Space and Defense Power Systems program, and the Navy's 
nuclear propulsion research and development program. The 
Committee recommendation for these infrastructure activities is 
$111,362,000. Of this total budget request $80,100,000 is 
funded in the Energy Supply appropriation, which includes 
$10,955,000 for construction activities. The Committee provides 
$17,762,000 in the Other Defense Activities appropriation and 
$13,500,000 to be transferred from Naval Reactors program to 
support the ATR Gas Loop.

                           PROGRAM DIRECTION

    The Committee recommendation includes $30,006,000 for 
program direction, the amount of the request. The Committee has 
also provided $31,103,000 from Other Defense Activities.

                           LEGACY MANAGEMENT

    The Committee recommendation includes $33,522,000 as

Committee recommendation................................      30,000,000

    The Committee recommendation includes $30,000,000 for non-
defense environment, safety, and health, which includes 
$20,900,000 for Program Direction.

                         CLEAN COAL TECHNOLOGY

                               (DEFERRAL)

    The Committee recommends the deferral of $257,000,000 in 
clean coal technology funding until fiscal year 2007. These 
balances are not needed to complete active projects in this 
program.

                 FOSSIL ENERGY RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $571,854,000

Committee recommendation................................     641,646,000

    The mission of the Fossil Energy R&D; Program is to create 
public benefits by enhancing U.S. economic, environmental, and 
energy security. The program carries out three types of 
activities: (1) managing and performing energy-related research 
that reduces market barriers to the reliable, efficient, and 
environmentally sound use of fossil fuels for power generation 
and conversion to other fuels such as hydrogen; (2) partnering 
with industry and others to advance clean and efficient fossil 
energy technologies toward commercialization in United States 
and international markets; and (3) supporting the development 
of information and policy options that benefit the public by 
ensuring access to adequate supplies of affordable and clean 
energy.
    Clean Coal Power Initiative.--By 2010, demonstration of 
advanced coal-based power generation technologies will be 
initiated that will lead to long-range economic and 
environmental public benefits. The Committee recommends 
$100,000,000 for the Clean Coal Power Initiative, an increase 
of $50,000,000.
    FutureGen.--The FutureGen research prototype facility 
within the Clean Coal Power Initiative subprogram will 
demonstrate the technical feasibility and economic viability of 
the zero emission (including carbon) coal concepts. The 
Committee recommends $18,000,000 for FutureGen as requested.
    Fuels and Power Systems.--The Committee recommends a total 
of $306,550,000 for fuels and power systems, an increase of 
$23,550,000. The recommendation includes $99,850,000 for 
central systems (innovations for existing plants, advanced 
integrated gasification combined cycle, and advanced turbines). 
The Committee recommends $74,200,000 for carbon sequestration, 
including $10,000,000 for the Center for Zero Emissions 
Research and Technology, and $5,000,000 above the request for 
the Energy and Environmental Research Center. The Committee 
recommendation includes $29,000,000 for fuels, $69,000,000 for 
fuel cells, (including $7,500,000 for High Temperature 
Electrochemistry), and $34,500,000 for Advanced Research. 
Within funds made available for Advanced Fuels Research, 
$700,000 is provided for development of continuous solvent 
extraction processes for coal derived carbon products; and 
$500,000 is provided within the amount for fuels to West 
Virginia University to study the long-term environmental and 
economic impacts of the development of coal liquefaction in 
China.
    U.S./China Energy and Environmental Center.--The Committee 
recommends the Department continues support for the U.S./China 
Energy and Environmental Center. The Center provides essential 
services to assist U.S. industries entering the complex and 
expanding Chinese energy market.
    Natural Gas Technologies.--The Committee recommendation 
includes $27,000,000, an increase of $17,000,000 above the 
budget request. The Committee recommends $2,000,000 to support 
the efforts of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission.
    Petroleum--Oil Technologies.--The Committee recommendation 
includes $32,000,000, an increase of $22,000,000 above the 
budget request.
    Program Direction.--The Committee recommendation includes

                 NAVAL PETROLEUM AND OIL SHALE RESERVES

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $17,750,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      18,500,000
House allowance.........................................      18,500,000
Committee recommendation................................      21,500,000

    The Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves no longer serve 
the national defense purpose envisioned in the early 1900's, 
and consequently the National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 1996 (Public Law 104-106) required the sale of the 
Government's interest in the Naval Petroleum Reserve 1 [NPR-1]. 
To comply with this requirement, the Elk Hills field in 
California was sold to Occidental Petroleum Corporation in 
1998. Following the sale of Elk Hills and the transfer of the 
oil shale reserves, DOE retains two Naval Petroleum Reserve 
properties: the Naval Petroleum Reserve 3 in Wyoming (Teapot 
Dome field), a stripper well oil field that the Department is 
maintaining until it reaches its economic production limit; and 
the Buena Vista Hills Naval Petroleum Reserve 2 in California, 
a checkerboard pattern of Government and privately owned tracts 
adjacent to the Elk Hills field. The DOE continues to be 
responsible for routine operations and maintenance of NPR-3, 
management of the Rocky Mountain Oilfield Testing Center at 
NPR-3, lease management at NPR-2, and continuing environmental 
and remediation work at Elk Hills.
    The Committee recommends $21,500,000, an increase of 
$3,000,000 above the budget request. The Committee has provided 
the additional funding to support the activities under the NPR/
Colorado, Utah Wyoming program.

                      ELK HILLS SCHOOL LANDS FUND

Appropriations, 2005.................................... \1\ $36,000,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      48,000,000
House allowance.........................................      48,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      48,000,000

\1\ The fiscal year 2005 enacted level reflects an advanced 
appropriation available on October 1, 2005.

    Payment to the Elk Hills school lands fund was part of the 
settlement associated with the sale of the Naval Petroleum 
Reserve Number 1. Under the settlement, payments to the fund 
are to be made over a period of 7 years. The payments to date 
($216,000,000) were based on an estimate of the amount that 
would be required to pay the State of California nine percent 
of the net sales of proceeds.
    The Committee recommends $48,000,000, the same as the 
budget request, and combined with the fiscal year 2005 advance 
appropriation of $36,000,000, will make available a total of 
$84,000,000 in fiscal year 2006. While this represents Payment 
#7 in a series of seven payments, the Committee understands 
that the final amount due will be based on the resolution of 
equity determinations, which cannot be determined until all 
divestment-related expenses are accounted for.

                      STRATEGIC PETROLEUM RESERVE

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $169,710,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     166,000,000
House allowance.........................................     166,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     166,000,000

    The mission of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve [SPR] is to 
store petroleum to reduce the adverse economic impact of a 
major petroleum supply interruption to the United States and to 
carry out obligations under the international energy program. 
The reserve will be filled to 700 million barrels in 2005, 
providing 59 days of net import protection.
    The Committee recommends $166,000,000, the same as the 
budget request, for operation of the Strategic Petroleum 
Reserve, a decrease of $3,710,000 from the fiscal year 2005 
level.

                   NORTHEAST HOME HEATING OIL RESERVE

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $4,960,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................................

    The acquisition and storage of heating oil for the 
Northeast States began in August 2000 when the Department of 
Energy, through the Strategic Petroleum Reserve account, 
awarded contracts for the lease of commercial storage 
facilities and acquisition of heating oil. The purpose of the 
reserve is to assure home heating oil supplies for the 
Northeast States during times of very low inventories and 
significant threats to immediate supply of heating oil. The 
Northeast Heating Oil Reserve was established as a separate 
entity from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve on March 6, 2001. 
The 2 million barrel reserve is stored in commercial facilities 
in New York Harbor, New Haven, Connecticut, and the Providence, 
Rhode Island area.
    The Committee recommends no new appropriation, the same as 
the budget request, for the Northeast Home Heating Oil Reserve, 
a decrease of $4,960,000 from the fiscal 2005 level. All 
activities in fiscal year 2006 are funded from carryover 
balances.

                   ENERGY INFORMATION ADMINISTRATION

Appropriation, 2005.....................................     $83,819,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      85,926,000
House allowance.........................................      86,426,000
Committee recommendation................................      85,926,000

    The Committee recommends $85,926,000, the same as the 
budget request.
    The Energy Information Administration is a leader in 
providing high-quality, policy-neutral energy information to 
meet the requirements of Congress, the Federal Government, 
industry, energy markets and the public in a manner that 
promotes sound policymaking and efficient markets. As the 
energy industry becomes more complex and interdependent, it has 
been EIA's responsibility to update its energy data to keep 
pace with changing energy industry and markets. It is critical 
that EIA continue to adapt to rapid changes and provide data 
that is relevant and helpful to industry, policymakers, the 
media and Federal enforcement officials.

                  NON-DEFENSE ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT

    The Non-Defense Environmental Management program includes 
funds to manage and clean up sites used for civilian energy 
research, and non-defense related activities. These past 
activities resulted in radioactive, hazardous, and mixed waste 
contamination that requires remediation, stabilization, or some 
other type of action.
    The Non-Defense Environmental Management activities were 
previously funded in three separate accounts, two of which are 
now combined: Non-Defense Site Acceleration Completion, and 
Non-Defense Environmental Services are now one account, Non-
Defense Environmental Cleanup. The Uranium Enrichment 
Decontamination and Decommissioning Fund for environmental 
management responsibilities at the three gaseous diffusion 
enrichment plants (Oak Ridge, Portsmouth, and Paducah) and for 
reimbursement of licensees conducting cleanup of uranium and 
thorium processing sites remains the same.
    The Committee remains committed to the strategy of 
accelerating cleanup and closing sites. However, the 
categorization of funding activities by planning goals has 
diminished in utility over time--dates slip, and activities 
that do not fit the ``2012'' timeframe were merely moved into 
the ``2035'' timeframe as a matter of course. As such, the 
Committee no longer finds this display of activities useful, 
and has moved to a location/site-based display, to increase the 
transparency of where environmental cleanup dollars are being 
spent. The Committee requests that congressional budget 
submissions be submitted in this format in the future.
    Reprogramming Authority.--The Committee continues to 
support the need for flexibility to meet changing funding 
requirements at sites. In fiscal year 2006, the Department may 
transfer up to $2,000,000 between control points, to reduce 
health or safety risks or to gain cost savings as long as no 
program or project is increased or decreased by more than 
$2,000,000 once during the fiscal year. The control points for 
reprogramming are the Fast Flux Test Reactor Facility, West 
Valley Demonstration Project, Gaseous Diffusion Plants, Small 
Sites, and construction line items. This reprogramming 
authority may not be used to initiate new programs or programs 
specifically denied, limited, or increased by Congress in the 
Act or report. The Committees on Appropriations of the House 
and Senate must be notified within 30 days prior to the use of 
this reprogramming authority.
    Economic Development.--None of the Non-Defense 
Environmental Management funds, including those provided in the 
Non-Defense Environmental Cleanup, and Uranium Enrichment 
Decontamination and Decommissioning Fund, are available for 
economic development activities.

                   Non-Defense Environmental Cleanup

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $439,601,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     259,934,000
House allowance.........................................     319,934,000
Committee recommendation................................     353,219,000

    The Committee recommendation for Non-Defense Environmental 
Cleanup is $353,219,000, an increase of $3,285,000 above the 
budget request.
    The Committee provides $77,100,000 for solid waste 
stabilization and disposition, and nuclear facility 
decontamination and decommissioning at the West Valley 
Demonstration Project, and $48,813,000 for decontamination and 
decommissioning of the gaseous diffusion plants. The Committee 
provides $46,113,000 for the decontamination and 
decommissioning of the Fast Flux Test Facility [FFTF].
    The Committee provides $85,803,000 for depleted uranium 
hexafluoride conversion at Portsmouth and Paducah. The 
Committee provides $28,006,000, for soil and water remediation 
measures at the former Atlas uranium mill tailings site at 
Moab, Utah.
    Small Sites.--The Committee provides $34,328,000 for soil 
and water remediation, graphite research reactor and high flux 
beam reactor decontamination and decommissioning at Brookhaven 
National Laboratory; $10,487,000 for soil and water remediation 
and nuclear facility decontamination and decommissioning at 
Argonne National Laboratory; and $5,274,000 for spent nuclear 
fuel stabilization and disposition at Idaho National 
Laboratory.
    The Committee recommendation provides $3,900,000 for soil 
and water remediation at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; 
$3,500,000 for soil and water remediation at the Stanford 
Linear Accelerator Center; $9,000,000 for nuclear facility 
decontamination and decommissioning for the Energy Technology 
Engineering Center; $490,000 for decontamination and 
decommissioning of the Tritium System Test Assembly Facility at 
Los Alamos National Laboratory; and $305,000 for soil and water 
remediation at Inhalation Toxicology Laboratory.

      Uranium Enrichment Decontamination and Decommissioning Fund

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $415,655,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     571,498,000
House allowance.........................................     571,498,000
Committee recommendation................................     561,498,000

    The Uranium Enrichment D&D; Fund supports projects to 
maintain, decontaminate, decommission and otherwise remediate 
the gaseous diffusion plants at Portsmouth, Ohio; Paducah, 
Kentucky; and Oak Ridge, Tennessee. In addition, the Uranium/
Thorium Licensee Reimbursement program activities are funded 
within this appropriation.
    Uranium Enrichment Decontamination and Decommissioning.--
The Committee recommendation includes $561,498,000, a decrease 
of $10,000,000 from the budget request. The Committee 
recommendation includes $281,329,000 for activities at Oak 
Ridge, Tennessee. The Committee recommends $105,000,000 at 
Paducah, Kentucky, an increase of $7,000,000 above the budget 
request. The Department shall use the additional funds to 
accelerate the characterization and disposition of waste 
offsite, including the Designated Material Storage Areas, low-
level wastes, TSCA waste, and mixed low level waste. Within the 
funds provided the Department shall undertake a study of the 
potential purchase of property or options to purchase property 
that is located above the plume of contaminated groundwater 
near the facility site. The study shall evaluate the adequate 
protection of human health and environment from exposure to 
contaminated groundwater and consider whether such purchase, 
when taking into account the cost of remediation, long-term 
surveillance, and maintenance, is in the best interest of 
taxpayers.
    The Department of Energy Inspector General published a 
report on March 10, 2005, which found that the Department had 
spent $17,000,000 for ``activities that are not specifically 
related to accelerating the cleanup at Portsmouth''. The IG 
found that $14,000,000 was used to move equipment in order to 
accommodate USEC's schedule to develop a gas centrifuge 
facility. The IG also found that the Department has expended 
$3,000,000 to move equipment to a temporary storage site to 
benefit USEC. The IG believes these expenditures and another 
$16,000,000 in possible future expenditures are in violation of 
the terms of the 2002 Agreement in which the Department agreed 
to clean up the Portsmouth site, leaving USEC to build and 
operate the enrichment facility at its own expense. It was the 
IG's determination that the Department had gone out of its way 
to support the commercial operations. The Committee also 
recognizes that the fiscal year 2003 House Energy and Water 
report (H. Rept. 107-681) provided clear direction that the 
Department was only to provide assistance on a reimbursable 
basis. As such, the Committee recommends a $17,000,000 
reduction in funding and directs the Department to recover the 
funding reduction from USEC. The Committee directs the 
Department to provide a full accounting and justification of 
all future expenditures at Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant 
to the Department of Energy Inspector General for review to 
ensure compliance with the 2002 agreement between the 
Department and USEC in fiscal year 2006. The Committee 
recommends $175,157,000 for cleanup activities at Portsmouth, 
Ohio, a reduction of $17,000,000 below the budget request.
    The Committee does not approve of and has provided no funds 
for direct or indirect costs; and prohibits the Department from 
transferring any uranium assets for trade, sale or barter with 
USEC as proposed in the budget. The Department has failed to 
adequately specify proposed costs associated with these 
activities and the Committee is skeptical that this proposal is 
in the best interests of Federal Government and U.S. taxpayers. 
The Committee understands that the Government Accountability 
Office is undertaking a study of the terms and conditions of 
this arrangement and will provide a report to Congress to 
clarify if this activity is in the best interest of taxpayers. 
Until Congress has an opportunity to review the GAO report, the 
Congress does not provide any funds to support the barter 
arrangement. The Committee is also skeptical of the proposed 
benefits of the USEC-proposed Project Isaiah to down blend 
highly enriched uranium and undertake a complicated scheme of 
transactions to provide low enriched fuel to the market. The 
Committee provides no funding to the Department to undertake 
Project Isaiah or support this effort.
    Uranium/Thorium Reimbursement.--The Committee 
recommendation includes no funding for this activity.

                                Science

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $3,599,871,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   3,462,718,000
House allowance.........................................   3,666,055,000
Committee recommendation................................   3,702,718,000

    The Committee recommendation for the Office of Science is 
$3,702,718,000, an increase of $240,000,000 above the request 
and $102,847,000 above the current year level.
    The Science account funds investment in basic research 
critical to the success of the Department's missions in 
national security, energy security and economic security. 
Programs funded under this account perform a leadership role in 
advancing the frontiers of knowledge in the physical sciences 
and areas of biological, environmental and computational 
sciences. The Department provides 40 percent of the total 
Federal spending that supports the research of 15,000 PhDs, 
post doctorate and graduate students, as well as operating 10 
facilities used by over 19,000 researchers each year.

              GOVERNMENT FUNDING OF THE PHYSICAL SCIENCES

    Investment in the physical sciences and engineering plays a 
critical role in enabling U.S. technological innovation and 
global economic leadership. It is essential to the development 
and utilization of our energy resources, as well as innovations 
in the areas of defense, the environment, communications and 
information technologies, health care and much more. Over the 
past 50 years, half of U.S. economic growth has come from prior 
investment in science and technological innovation. Life 
expectancy has grown from 55 years in 1900 to nearly 80 years 
today.
    The United States has been the undisputed world leader in 
the physical sciences for the past six decades, an investment 
strategy that has led to huge gains in our national security, 
economic prosperity and overall quality of life for all U.S. 
citizens. Federal support for fundamental research in physics, 
chemistry, materials sciences, and other scientific disciplines 
crucial to U.S. industry has been a major contributor to this 
national success story.
    But the foundations for the future of the physical sciences 
are eroding. The Department of Energy's Office of Science, 
which is the leading source of Federal investment for R&D; 
facilities and fundamental research in the physical sciences, 
is at a crossroads. At a time when our international 
competitors are significantly scaling up their investments in 
the physical sciences (the European Union will soon double its 
overall funding for R&D;), funding for the Office of Science and 
other U.S. agencies has been flat or even declining. This comes 
at a time when U.S. industry is scaling back its investments in 
long-term research in the physical sciences in an effort to 
remain competitive in the short term.
    This trend is not uniform or irreversible. Significant 
investments in key areas of science, most of which are 
supported by DOE's Office of Science, will keep our Nation at 
the forefront of future research into the physical sciences. 
The future health of our national system of physical sciences 
R&D; can be restored by focused investments in three areas: 
major scientific user facilities that support the physical 
sciences; the university scientists who conduct world class 
research and train our next generation of scientific talent; 
and DOE's national laboratories, which are the Nation's 
crucible for multidisciplinary work in challenging aspects of 
the physical sciences that cannot be performed elsewhere.
    The Office of Science has done commendable work planning 
for the future of the physical sciences in the United States. A 
20-year investment plan for the new research facilities that 
our Nation needs is being implemented but existing capabilities 
cannot be sacrificed to purchase new facilities. The Committee 
urges that the Office of Science research programs work closely 
with their university counterparts to make joint investments 
that ensure the vitality of physical science academic 
departments.
    The Government must tap into the enormous capabilities of 
the Office of Science and regain world leadership in the 
physical sciences. DOE user facilities should be operating at 
their designed capacity, providing key discovery opportunities 
for thousands of new researchers every year. University 
research programs in nanoscience, catalysis, mathematics and 
physics should be expanded to ensure training of the next 
generation of outstanding scientists needed to solve important 
national problems. Multidisciplinary research at the national 
laboratories should be encouraged to meet national challenges 
in defense, energy production and the environment. Taken as a 
whole, these investments will ensure U.S. leadership in the 
physical sciences and the vitality of the U.S. economy.
    The Office of Science operates many of the Nation's most 
advanced large-scale user facilities of importance to all areas 
of science. These state-of-the-art facilities are shared with 
the science community world-wide and contain technologies and 
instrumentation that are available nowhere else. These 
facilities serve tens of thousands of users in laboratories, 
universities, industry, and other Federal agencies, and 
represent large Federal capital investments. Over the last 
several years many of these facilities have operated below 
optimal levels. In order to rectify this situation, the 
Committee has provided funding to restore operations of the SC 
user facilities to optimal levels by providing an additional 
$100,000,000 for facility operations allocated as follows: 
$20,000,000 in Basic Energy Sciences; $3,000,000 in High Energy 
Physics; $49,000,000 in Nuclear physics; and $28,000,000 in 
Fusion Energy Sciences.

                          HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $735,699,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     713,933,000
House allowance.........................................     735,933,000
Committee recommendation................................     716,933,000

    The Committee recommendation includes $716,933,000 for high 
energy physics, an increase of $3,000,000, to provide 
operational funding to ensure full utilization of facilities.
    The high energy physics program focuses on gaining insights 
into the fundamental constituents of matter, the fundamental 
forces in nature, and the transformations between matter and 
energy at the most elementary level. The program encompasses 
both experimental and theoretical particle physics research and 
related advanced accelerator and detector technology R&D.; The 
primary mode of experimental research involves the study of 
collisions of energetic particles using large particle 
accelerators or colliding beam facilities.
    The Committee recognizes the critical importance of the 
DOE/NASA Joint Dark Energy Mission [JDEM] in answering 
fundamental questions about the nature and substance of the 
universe. Consequently, the Committee encourages the Department 
to move JDEM forward aggressively to ensure the timely 
accomplishment of this important work.

                            NUCLEAR PHYSICS

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $404,778,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     370,741,000
House allowance.........................................     408,341,000
Committee recommendation................................     419,741,000

    The Committee recommends $419,741,000 for nuclear physics, 
an increase of $49,000,000 to ensure full utilization of 
experimental facilities.
    The nuclear physics program supports and provides 
experimental equipment to qualified scientists and research 
groups conducting experiments at nuclear physics accelerator 
facilities. These facilities provide new insights and advance 
our knowledge of the nature of matter and energy and develop 
the scientific knowledge, technologies and trained manpower 
needed to underpin the Department's nuclear missions.
    Rare Isotope Accelerator.--The Committee requests the 
Department to submit a report within 120 days after the 
enactment of this Act, with information critical to moving 
forward with the site selection of the Rare Isotope 
Accelerator. The report shall include, but not be limited to, 
(1) the status and progress of the conceptual research and 
development supporting the development of RIA over the past 6 
years; (2) the priority research areas the Department will 
complete prior to site selection for RIA; (3) the process by 
which the Department selects recipients for its research and 
development funding; (4) how the results of current and future 
research and development may affect the design of RIA or the 
path forward; (5) what technical hurdles remain before RIA site 
selection can resume; and (6) what funding will be required to 
clear those hurdles and what is the expected length of time for 
completion of these activities.
    Finally, the Committee requests the Department clarify its 
plans to move forward with RIA, provide an estimate of when the 
draft request for proposals will be reissued, and assess 
whether in a constrained budget environment the Department has 
any concern that RIA, as it is currently envisioned, will not 
be built. If the Department anticipates that future budgets 
will not allow for RIA, the Committee requests the report 
provide alternatives and explain how the Nation would meet our 
need for the fundamental physics knowledge and training of 
scientists applicable to national security and homeland 
security that RIA would provide.

                 BIOLOGICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $571,922,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     455,688,000
House allowance.........................................     525,688,000
Committee recommendation................................     503,688,000

    The Committee recommendation includes $503,688,000 for 
biological and environmental research, an increase of 
$48,000,000 over the budget request.
    The biological and environmental research program develops 
the knowledge base necessary to identify, understand, and 
anticipate the long-term health and environmental consequences 
of energy use and development. The program utilizes the 
Department's unique scientific and technological capabilities 
to solve major scientific problems in the environment, 
medicine, and biology. The Committee recommendation includes 
the budget request for low dose radiation research. The 
Department is in the process or reorganizing the National 
Institute for Global Environmental Change [NIGEC] into the 
National Institute for Climatic Change Research [NICCR]. The 
Committee directs that a center be created that will work in 
collaboration with the other four regional centers of NICCR and 
will address the need for the development of methodologies and 
tools for the understanding and modeling of the impacts of 
global and regional climatic changes on riparian and coastal 
environmental and ecological systems that are throughout the 
Nation.
    Genomes.--Funding for the Human Genome program is provided 
to understand the genes identified in the Human Genome Project 
and to meet growing demand for sequencing in the broader 
scientific community. The Genome to Life activity aimed at 
understanding the composition and function of biochemical 
networks that carry our essential processes of living 
organisms. Current estimates project that the energy needs of 
the world will double by the year 2050. Energy supply and 
demand are expected to exert strong economic pressure on the 
United States and become one of the most important factors in 
the security of the country in this time frame. Biology-based 
solutions that contribute to increasing U.S. energy supply and 
decreasing its dependence on foreign sources of energy offer an 
exceptionally attractive alternative to petroleum-based 
sources. Microbes can act as catalysts to convert biomass to 
clean fuels and feedstock for key chemicals. To develop 
practical and economical biology-based systems for generation 
of energy and high-value chemicals, we must increase our 
knowledge of key biological systems, metabolic pathways, gene 
regulatory systems, and molecular structures and function. 
Understanding these key areas will provide new insights in 
microbial systems and permit biology-based resources to be 
harnessed.
    The Committee is supportive of the Department's effort to 
move ahead with a request for proposal for the first of four 
GTL facilities. The Committee is concerned that under the 
current budget and timetable, it is unlikely the Office of 
Science will be able to successfully prepare timely 
procurements for the three remaining facilities unless changes 
are made to the program. The Committee recommends the 
Department apply the same model as was used for the competition 
of the five nanotechnology centers. The Department was able to 
complete the five regional centers for a total cost of 
$301,000,000. Using the nanotechnology centers as the model, 
the Committee directs the Office of Science to accelerate the 
deployment of these world class genomic facilities.
    Each of the four proposed facilities already identified by 
the Office of Science will support research and development to 
understand and develop solutions related to bioenergy and 
biobased products. However, due to the nature of the research 
there is a need for all four facilities to be deployed in order 
to meet the separate scientific challenges of molecular 
characterization, analysis of microbial response, and 
developing a better understanding of biological systems. The 
Committee has provided $40,000,000 to accelerate the Genomics: 
GTL program. Within the funds provided $20,000,000 shall be 
used to support research and development to support the GTL 
program and $20,000,000 to conduct preliminary engineering and 
design for the remaining 3 facilities in the Genomes To Life 
program.
    Molecular Medicine.--The Committee continues to support 
research that brings together PET imaging, systems biology and 
nanotechnology to develop new molecular imaging probes. These 
probes should provide a biological diagnosis of disease that is 
informative of the molecular basis of disease and specific for 
guiding the development of new molecular therapies.
    The Committee is concerned about the consequences 
mitigation activities and public health impact associated with 
the threat of any radiological event and strongly encourages 
the Department to develop therapeutical radiological 
countermeasures to protect against exposure to the effects of 
ionizing radiation. The Committee is aware of the potential of 
inositol signaling molecules as a therapy for exposure to 
ionizing radiation and encourages the Department to support 
research of this emerging technology. The Committee recommends 
$7,000,000 for UCLA Institute for Molecular Medicine to protect 
the public health against radiation exposure.
    The Committee strongly supports DOE's efforts to maintain 
the scientific infrastructure of the Nation's structural 
biology assets, and encourages the Department to work to 
address the needs within the broader community.
    The Committee recommends $1,000,000 for the purchase of 
equipment at the New York Structural Biology Center.
    Within available funds, the Department shall continue to 
fund the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory.
    The Committee recommendation includes an additional 
$3,500,000 to the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory 
[EMSL] for upgrades to instrumentation at this national user 
facility.
    Congressionally Directed Projects.--The Committee 
recommendation includes the following Congressionally directed 
projects, within available funds. The Committee reminds 
recipients that statutory cost sharing requirements may attach 
to these projects.

                         BASIC ENERGY SCIENCES

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $1,104,632,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   1,146,017,000
House allowance.........................................   1,173,149,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,241,017,000

    The Committee recommendation provides $1,241,017,000, an 
increase of $95,000,000.
    The basic energy sciences [BES] program funds basic 
research in the physical, biological and engineering sciences 
that support the Department's nuclear and non-nuclear 
technology programs. The BES program is responsible for 
operating large national user research facilities, including 
synchrotron light and neutron sources, and a combustion 
research facility, as well as smaller user facilities such as 
materials preparation and electron microscopy centers. The BES 
program supports a substantial basic research budget for 
materials sciences, chemical sciences, energy biosciences, 
engineering and geosciences.
    Within available funds, the Committee recommendation 
includes $7,280,000 for the Department's Experimental Program 
to Stimulate Competitive Research. The Committee provides 
$5,000,000 to purchase additional fuel for the High Flux 
Isotope Reactor.

Research

    The Committee recommendation includes $1,062,944,000, the 
amount of the request, for materials sciences, engineering 
research, chemical sciences, geosciences, and energy 
biosciences. The Committee recommendation includes $4,500,000 
for Altair Nanotech for nanotechnology, nanosensors, and 
nanomaterials research, development, and deployment.
    Energy-Water Supply Technologies.--The Committee 
recommendation includes an additional $25,000,000, within the 
chemical sciences, geosciences, and energy biosciences account, 
to support a research and demonstration program to study 
energy-related issues associated with water resources and 
issues associated with sustainable water supplies for energy 
production. Within available funds, the Committee recommends 
$25,000,000 for energy and water resources management including 
$8,000,000 for advanced concept desalination and arsenic 
treatment research in partnership with American Water Works 
Research Foundation and WERC; $12,000,000 for water supply 
technology development in partnership with other national 
laboratories to initiate demonstration projects and technology 
transfer activities; and $5,000,000 for water management 
decision support including demonstration programs in 
partnership with the New Mexico Office of the State Engineer, 
transboundary applications and support for international energy 
and water efficiency.

Construction

    Spallation Neutron Source.--The Committee recommendation 
includes the budget request of $41,744,000 to continue 
construction at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the 
Spallation Neutron Source [SNS] to meet the Nation's neutron 
scattering needs.
    Nanoscale Science Research Centers.--The Committee 
recommendation supports the high priority given to nanoscale 
research and has included the budget request for the nanoscale 
science research centers at Lawrence Berkeley National 
Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Argonne National 
Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the joint 
effort between Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos 
National Laboratory.
    National Nanotechnology Enterprise Development Center.--The 
Committee directs $30,000,000 for the establishment of the 
National Nanotechnology Enterprise Development Center [NNEDC], 
to be co-located with the Center for Integrated 
Nanotechnologies [CINT], a joint facility of Sandia National 
Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory. The Committee 
intends that the NNEDC will assist in the technological 
maturation of nanotechnologies developed at the National 
Nanoscience Initiative facilities. The mission of the NNEDC 
will be to identify nanotechnologies developed at the national 
laboratories and partnered universities that are promising 
candidates for commercialization and to assist in their 
transition to the marketplace. The Center will be directed by 
employees of Sandia National Laboratory and Los Alamos National 
Laboratory and will emphasize opportunities for industry 
partnership with the CINT.

                 ADVANCED SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING RESEARCH

    The Committee recommendation provides $207,055,000 for 
advanced scientific computing research. The Advanced Scientific 
Computing Research [ASCR] program supports advanced 
computational research--applied mathematics, computer science, 
and networking--to enable the analysis, simulation and 
prediction of complex physical phenomena. The program also 
supports the operation of large supercomputer user facilities.
    The National Leadership Computing Facility at Oak Ridge 
National Laboratory will provide the scientific community with 
the computing capability needed to solve problems out of reach 
of currently available systems and lead to significant 
advancements in areas such as biology, fusion, and climate 
change. Unfortunately, the budget request for this effort would 
halt the next phase of machine acquisitions and provides 
inadequate funding to operate the system that will be installed 
during fiscal year 2005.
    The Committee strongly supports the National Leadership 
Computing Facility and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory's 
leadership in this important area. Full operation of the 
National Leadership Computing Facility at ORNL is necessary to 
keep domestic researchers and industries competitive with their 
global counterparts. The Committee will work to ensure that 
sufficient funding is provided to meet the next phase of 
machine acquisitions and encourages the Department to focus its 
efforts on enhancing and expanding activities at the National 
Leadership Computing Facility.

                  SCIENCE LABORATORIES INFRASTRUCTURE

    The Committee recommends $40,105,000, to support 
infrastructure activities at the five national labs under the 
direction of the Office of Science.

                         FUSION ENERGY SCIENCES

    Fusion Energy.--The Committee provides $290,550,000, the 
same as the budget request. The Committee has provided 
$28,000,000 in additional funding to ensure the full operations 
on the DIII-D, Alcator C-Mod, and NSTX fusion research 
facilities. The current budget reduces operations from 48 weeks 
to just 17 weeks, which the Committee believes is an 
irresponsible use of the taxpayer investment in these 
facilities. The Committee has reduced funding for the 
International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor [ITER] by 
$28,000,000, equal to the amount domestic research has been 
increased. The Committee is disappointed that a decision has 
not been made in selecting a site for the location of this 
international burning plasma user facility. Without a final 
decision on a location or allocation, the Committee is 
skeptical the Department will be able to expend the full budget 
request for this project in fiscal year 2006. If a site is 
selected, the Committee will work with the Department to 
provide an allocation that is consistent with the expected 
needs for this project. Within available funds, the Committee 
includes $1,000,000 for non-defense research activities at the 
Atlas Pulse Power facility.

                        SAFEGUARDS AND SECURITY

    The Committee recommendation provides $74,317,000 for 
safeguards and security, the same level as the request.
    The safeguards and security line identifies the funding 
necessary for the physical protection, protective forces, 
physical security, protective systems, information security, 
cyber security, personnel security, materials control and 
accountability and program management activities for national 
laboratories and facilities of the Office of Science.

                     SCIENCE WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommendation provides $7,192,000 for 
science workforce development.
    The science workforce development program provides limited 
funding to train young scientists, engineers, and technicians 
to meet the demand for a well trained scientific and technical 
workforce, including the teachers that educate the workforce.
    The Committee encourages the Department of Energy to 
provide funds and technical expertise for high school students 
to participate in the 2005 For Inspiration and Recognition of 
Science and Technology [FIRST] Robotics competition. FIRST has 
proven to be a valuable program to introduce and mentor 
students in math and science.

                       SCIENCE PROGRAM DIRECTION

    The Committee recommendation provides $207,725,000 for 
science program direction.
    Within available funds, the Committee provides $5,000,000 
for the Office of Science to conduct project engineering and 
design in support of replacement facilities at the Pacific 
Northwest National Laboratory in order to support accelerated 
cleanup of Hanford site. The Committee has provided a total of 
$18,000,000 for preliminary engineering and design in this 
account and in Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation.

                      Nuclear Waste Disposal Fund

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $343,232,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     300,000,000
House allowance.........................................     310,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     300,000,000

    The Committee provides $300,000,000 from fees collected by 
the Secretary and deposited into the fund established by Public 
Law 97-425 as amended. In addition to the defense contribution 
of $277,000,000, funding for Yucca Mountain will be provided at 
the fiscal year 2004 level of $577,000,000.
    The Department plans to submit its nuclear waste repository 
license application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission during 
fiscal year 2006. In view of the authority granted to the State 
of Nevada and the affected units of local government to 
participate in licensing activities under this Act, the 
Congress wants to ensure that conflicts of interest are avoided 
between the Department as license applicant and the affected 
governments as potential parties to the license proceeding. The 
Department's practice of reviewing and approving annual work 
plans for affected government oversight programs is 
inconsistent with its role as a license applicant because the 
affected governments are potential parties to the proceeding. 
In place of an approval function, the Department shall advise 
and consult with affected governments for the sole purpose of 
assisting them to comply with the requirements of the Nuclear 
Waste Policy Act (Public Law 97-425). The affected governments 
are required, under the Nuclear Waste Policy Act [NWPA], to 
provide certification to the Department that all funds have 
been expended for activities authorized by the NWPA and this 
Appropriations Act. The prior approval of the Department is not 
required by these acts. Such certification and any audits 
carried out by the Department or others are sufficient to 
ensure that affected governments are using funds for the 
purpose intended. Audits shall be carried out at regular 
intervals by auditors from the Office of Civilian Radioactive 
Waste Management, or by independent auditors, using uniform 
criteria and procedures. Funds appropriated under this Act may 
be used for review of repository activities authorized in 
Section 116(c) of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act, for review of 
any proposal to develop a Monitored Retrievable Storage 
facility or an Interim Storage facility, and for monitoring 
lessons learned from related facilities for the storage and 
disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive 
waste. Such review activities may include potential economic, 
social, public health and safety, and environmental impacts of 
the transportation, storage and disposal of nuclear wastes.
    The Committee has provided $3,500,000 for the State of 
Nevada and $8,500,000 for the affected units of local 
government in accordance with the statutory restrictions 
contained in the Nuclear Waste Policy Act. The Committee 
directs that $500,000 be provided to Nye County, Nevada, to 
conduct on-site activities pursuant to Section 117(d) of that 
Act. These funds shall be separate and apart from oversight 
funding under Section 116(c) of the Act, and shall be made 
available to Nye County by direct payment subject to the same 
restrictions as apply to oversight payments for affected units 
of local government. Nye County is still permitted to seek 
funding under the Section 116(c) program, but the Committee 
expects the county to seek a lesser percentage of that 
program's annual funding.
    The administration has requested that the funds provided to 
the AULG's be provided for a period of 21 months. The Committee 
rejects this approach and directs the Department to provide 
this funding in the traditional annual (i.e., 12 month) manner. 
The Committee expects to provide fiscal year 2007 funding in 
the fiscal year 2007 Appropriations bill.

administration, a net appropriation of $157,976,000.
    The Departmental Administration account funds policy 
development and analysis activities, institutional and public 
liaison functions, and other program support requirements 
necessary to ensure effective operation and management. The 
account also covers salaries and expenses for the Office of the 
Secretary; Board of Contract Appeals; Chief Information 
Officer; Congressional and intergovernmental affairs; Economic 
impact and diversity; General Counsel; Office of Management, 
Budget and Evaluation; Policy and International Affairs; and 
Public Affairs. The Committee recommends an increase of 
$1,000,000 for Public Affairs.

                           Inspector General

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $41,176,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      43,000,000
House allowance.........................................      43,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      43,000,000

    The Committee has provided $43,000,000 for the Office of 
the Inspector General, the same as the budget request.
    The Office of the Inspector General provides agency-wide 
audit, inspection, and investigative functions to identify and 
correct management and administrative deficiencies which create 
conditions for existing or potential instances of fraud, waste, 
and mismanagement.

                    ATOMIC ENERGY DEFENSE ACTIVITIES

    Atomic energy defense activities of the Department of 
Energy are provided for in two categories--the National Nuclear 
Security Administration and Environmental and Other Defense 
Activities. Appropriation accounts under the National Nuclear 
Security Administration [NNSA] are Weapons Activities, Defense 
Nuclear Nonproliferation, Naval Reactors, and the Office of the 
Administrator. Environmental and Other Defense Activities 
include appropriation accounts for Defense Site Acceleration 
Completion, Defense Environmental Services, Other Defense 
Activities, and Defense Nuclear Waste Disposal.

                National Nuclear Security Administration

    The National Nuclear Security Administration [NNSA], a 
separately organized and semi-autonomous agency within the 
Department of Energy, came into existence on March 1, 2000. The 
missions of the NNSA are: (1) to enhance United States national 
security through the military application of nuclear energy; 
(2) to maintain and enhance the safety, reliability, and 
performance of the United States nuclear weapons stockpile, 
including the ability to design, produce, and test, in order to 
meet national security requirements; (3) to provide the United 
States Navy with safe, militarily effective nuclear propulsion 
plants and to ensure the safe and reliable operation of those 
plants; (4) to promote international nuclear safety and 
nonproliferation; (5) to reduce global danger from weapons of 
mass destruction; and (6) to support United States leadership 
in science and technology. The programs and activities of the 
NNSA are funded through the following appropriation accounts: 
Weapons Activities, Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation, Naval 
Reactors, and Office of the Administrator.
    The committee is pleased that the administration has 
submitted the revised nuclear weapons stockpile plan as 
required by the fiscal year 2004 Energy and Water Development 
Appropriations Act (Public Law 108-137). The plan outlines how 
the Nation will achieve the 1,700-2,200 operationally deployed 
strategic warheads first outlined by the President in 2001 and 
subsequently codified in the Moscow Treaty. Once the reductions 
are achieved, the U.S. active nuclear weapons stockpile will be 
the smallest since the Eisenhower Administration. It clearly 
shows that the Administration undertook a careful analysis of 
the size and composition of the nuclear weapons stockpile that 
will be needed in the years ahead to ensure U.S. national 
security. To mitigate the risks of a smaller stockpile requires 
the United States must make continued progress in restoring a 
modern nuclear weapons infrastructure that can rapidly respond 
to geopolitical changes that may challenge U.S. national 
security or address potential problems in the Nation's nuclear 
deterrent.
    NNSA Complex Review.--Initiated under former Secretary 
Abraham, a task force was commissioned to study potential 
reforms to the nuclear weapons complex. This is the ninth such 
study commissioned since 1988. Previous studies have proposed a 
multitude of wide-ranging proposals, of which many were 
justifiably ignored. The challenge for the latest study panel 
will be to develop a modest package of reforms that identify 
cost savings and improvement to the complex without undermining 
the safety and security of our nuclear deterrent. It is the 
hope of this Committee that the study group will support the 
ongoing reforms to modernize the stockpile, through the 
Reliable Replacement Warhead program. This initiative, which 
was first proposed in the fiscal year 2005 Consolidated 
Appropriations Conference Report (H. Rept. 108-447) by the 
Energy and Water subcommittee, is a means to assure continued 
certification of the existing stockpile and to make it more 
affordable to manufacture, maintain and secure weapons. Such a 
plan will challenge weapons designers, manufacturing experts, 
computer scientists and experimentalists at our national labs 
to modernize the stockpile and will require sufficient funding 
in Science and Engineering Campaigns. The RRW program is not a 
new weapon, and this fact should be clear to the study panel 
members.
    The Committee recognizes the temptation for panel members 
to recommend comprehensive changes to shake up the complex and 
set it on a new direction. However, the Committee disagrees 
with the purported proposal to consolidate all of the nuclear 
material and the entire weapons manufacturing capability, 
including the construction of a Modern Pit Facility, at a 
single location. There are very strong opinions in Congress 
regarding the siting of a new pit facility or changing the 
military capability of the existing weapons. As such, the 
Committee believes it is unlikely that Congress would support 
such comprehensive reforms as currently proposed by the NNSA 
Complex study panel.
    It would be premature for this study to recommend 
significant changes to the complex until it is clear to both 
the Department of Defense and the Department of the Energy 
agree on what the stockpile will look like in the future and 
has the concurrence of the Congress before policy makers are 
likely to support the deployment of a brand new weapon into the 
stockpile, even if the military requirements remain the same. 
Those who support broad complex-wide reforms to the complex 
must be realistic in their expectations in reinventing the 
complex. Such a task will take time to ensure that the 
necessary improvement adequately supports science based 
stockpile stewardship.
    To protect the interests of the Committee and to ensure 
that this report and it proposed recommendations are carefully 
considered, no funds shall be used to implement any of the 
panel's recommendations in fiscal year 2006. This delay will 
provide Congress the opportunity to fully review the impact of 
the proposed recommendations. Since this report was not 
contemplated in President's fiscal year 2006 request, Congress 
will consider the implementation of any reforms as part the 
President's fiscal year 2007 budget request.

                           Weapons Activities

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $6,331,590,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   6,630,133,000
House allowance.........................................   6,181,121,000
Committee recommendation................................    6,554,354,00

    The Weapons Activities account provides for the maintenance 
and refurbishment of nuclear weapons in order to sustain 
confidence in their safety, reliability, and performance; the 
expansion of scientific, engineering, and manufacturing 
capabilities to enable certification of the enduring nuclear 
weapons stockpile; and the manufacture of nuclear weapon 
components under a comprehensive test moratorium. The Weapons 
Activities account also provides for maintaining the capability 
to return to the design and production of new weapons and to 
underground nuclear testing if so directed by the President and 
Congress. The major elements of the program include the 
following: directed stockpile work, campaigns, readiness in 
technical base and facilities, facilities and infrastructure, 
secure transportation asset, and safeguards and security.
    Weapons Activities Reprogramming Authority.--The Committee 
provides limited reprogramming authority within the Weapons 
Activities account without submission of a reprogramming to be 
approved in advance by the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations. The reprogramming categories will be as 
follows: directed stockpile work, science campaigns, 
engineering campaigns, inertial confinement fusion, advanced 
simulation and computing, pit manufacturing and certification, 
readiness campaigns, and operating expenses for readiness in 
technical base and facilities. In addition, funding of not more 
than $5,000,000 may be transferred between each of these 
categories and each construction project subject to the 
following limitations: only one transfer may be made to or from 
any program or project; the transfer must be necessary to 
address a risk to health, safety or the environment or to 
assure the most efficient use of weapons activities funds at a 
site; and funds may not be used for an item for which Congress 
has specifically denied funds or for a new program or project 
that has not been authorized by Congress. Congressional 
notification within 15 days of the use of this reprogramming 
authority is required. Transfers during the fiscal year which 
would result in increases or decreases in excess of $5,000,000 
or which would be subject to the limitations outlined above 
require prior notification and approval from the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations.

                        DIRECTED STOCKPILE WORK

    The Committee recommendation includes $1,458,786,000 for 
directed stockpile work.
    Directed Stockpile Work [DSW] includes all activities that 
directly support weapons in the nuclear stockpile, including 
maintenance, research, development, engineering, certification 
and dismantlement and disposal activities.
    The Committee supports a degree of flexibility in executing 
this budget by providing limited reprogramming authority within 
Directed Stockpile Work [DSW]. The control levels for the DSW 
program are:
    (1) Life Extension Programs;
    (2) Stockpile Systems;
    (3) Retired Warhead Stockpile Systems; and
    (4) Stockpile Services.
    Life Extension Program.--Within Life Extension Programs, 
the Committee fully funds LEP activities at $348,318,000 
including the administration's request for the B61 at 
$50,810,000 to refurbish the canned subassembly and replacement 
of associated seals, supports, cables and connectors. The 
Committee provides full funding of $162,268,000 for the W76 to 
provide among other activities funding to support the design of 
the refurbished warheads to meet the military characteristics. 
The Committee provides for the W80 at $135,240,000 in order to 
accelerate process prove-in activities, ground qualification 
tests for hardware that supports future flight tests, 
hydrodynamic tests, the system thermal mechanical tests and the 
full system engineering tests.
    Stockpile System.--Within Stockpile Systems, the Committee 
fully endorses $311,804,000 for Stockpile Systems including the 
W80 at $26,315,000 in order to conduct vital surveillance lab 
tests, Canned Subassembly [CSA] surveillance and significantly 
decrease the current surveillance backlog of work. Other 
critical activities include support of the annual assessment 
process, providing support for all agency safety studies, 
accelerating completion of Significant Finding Investigations 
[SFIs], conducting key integrated experiments per the baseline 
plan; maintain steady production of the 1K reservoir, timely 
production of telemetry units and other Joint Test Assembly 
[JTA] hardware for support of flight tests. Also, these 
improvements and acceleration of activities will support the 
Seamless Safety for the 21st Century [SS-21] initiative. Within 
the Stockpile Systems program the Committee supports the budget 
request and provides $66,050,000 for the B61; $8,967,000 for 
the W62; $63,538,000 for the W76; $32,632,000 for W78; 
$26,315,000 for the W80; $26,391,000 for B83; $4,402,000 for 
the W84; $50,678,000 for the W87; and $32,831,000 for the W88.
    Stockpile Services.--The Committee fully endorses the 
President's request at $798,664,000 for Stockpile Services with 
the areas of: Production Support; Research and Development 
Support; Research and Development Certification and Safety; 
Management, Technology, and Production; and, the Robust Nuclear 
Earth Penetrator. The Stockpile Services Program provides 
essential funding for production activities that supports all 
of the weapons systems. Any reduction to this program would 
undermine the U.S. infrastructure and the critical R&D; and 
production support, including quality control, certification, 
and training.
    The Committee recommends $267,246,000 for Production 
Support in order to facilitate, expedite and improve activities 
in the areas of Engineering Support; Manufacturing Support; 
Quality Supervision and Control; Tool, Gage and Test Equipment 
support; Purchasing and Material Support; and, Information 
Systems Support that were previously allocated to weapon types.
    The Committee recommends $71,753,000 for R&D; Support in 
order to continue to conduct timely and essential activities 
directly supporting research, development, design, and 
maintenance functions where the work is performed by the same 
functional organization, the work supports two or more weapon 
types, and the work is essentially the same for each weapon-
type and association of project costs to a weapon type would be 
arbitrary and are not directly identified or allocated to 
specific weapon types. The Committee directs the NNSA to fund 
the Nevada Test Site at $40,000,000, $5,000,000 above the 
request, to maintain the Subcritical Experiment Program, 
including the Phoenix Explosive Pulse Power program.
    The Committee recommends $243,727,000 for R&D; Certification 
and Safety in order to promote core competencies and 
capabilities not directly attributable to a single warhead 
type. Critical activities include modeling and assessment; 
safety, surety, and quality; warhead effects and system 
analysis studies, and model-based engineering and 
manufacturing; preparing and performing hydrodynamic tests; 
providing engineering and infrastructure support; multi-system 
surveillance; material science support and legacy archiving. 
The Committee recommends that an additional $21,000,000 be 
provided for Research and Development Certification and Safety 
to integrate new technologies into the stockpile consistent 
with the RRW program. The Committee provides an additional 
$10,000,000 to Los Alamos National Laboratory to conduct 
hydrodynamic testing in support of the Stockpile Stewardship 
program.
    The Committee recommends $171,587,000 for Management, 
Technology, and Production in order to continue key management 
and workload activities, not associated with a particular 
weapon type, which includes updating the Stockpile 
Dismantlement Database for the Nuclear Weapons Complex; Gas 
Transfer System [GTS] Redevelopment Reclamation for the First 
Production Unit [FPU]; core surveillance diagnostics; timely 
close-out of Significant Finding Investigations [SFIs]; 
conducting component engineering activities, reservoir forging 
development and special stockpile studies. The Committee 
provides $4,000,000 above the request to fund independent 
assessments of the safety of the stockpile and secure 
information exchange within the weapons complex.
    Reliable Replacement Warhead.--In response to a Los Alamos 
National Lab proposal to improve the sustainability of our 
national nuclear deterrent, Congress adopted the Reliable 
Replacement Warhead [RRW] Program in the fiscal year 2005 
Consolidated Appropriations Act (Public Law 108-447). NNSA is 
undertaking the RRW Program to understand if warhead design 
constraints imposed on Cold War systems (e.g. high yield to 
weight ratios that have typically driven ``tight'' performance 
margins in nuclear design) are relaxed, could replacement 
components for existing stockpile weapons be more easily 
manufactured with more readily available and more 
environmentally benign materials, and whose safety and 
reliability could be assured with high confidence, without 
nuclear testing. This effort does not call into question the 
safety or reliability of the current stockpile but acknowledges 
the long-term sustainability of the legacy stockpile will be 
difficult. Implementation of RRW should also result in reduced 
life-cycle costs for supporting the stockpile. The Committee 
recognizes that RRW is early in its development and will not 
significantly alter the near-term plans for stockpile support 
such as LEPs, but NNSA is encouraged to move aggressively to 
incorporate benefits from RRW into the stockpile as soon as 
possible.
    The Committee recommends $25,351,000 for RRW to accelerate 
the planning, development and design for a comprehensive RRW 
strategy that improves the reliability, longevity and 
certifiability of existing weapons and their components.
    Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator.--The Committee recommends 
$4,000,000 to support the funding of the Air Force led study. 
The NNSA-DOD teams will conduct B83 impact studies and analyze 
test data. Sandia National Laboratory is the site of the RNEP 
tests and the Laboratory possesses a unique set of capabilities 
to conduct the test on a qualified test track where they are 
able to design and produce necessary instrumentation. Sandia is 
also able to maintain a Secret/Restricted Data Protected 
Environment in which to conduct the test and disassemble test 
materials that include hazardous material such as depleted 
uranium and insensitive high explosives. There are no other 
facilities aside from Sandia and Lawrence Livermore National 
Laboratory where the test data can be readily used to validate 
computer models that require terra-scale computers to model the 
data. If this test were moved to another site, it would cost at 
least 100 percent more than the existing budget request in 
order to replicate the test facility, prepare the test in a 
Secret/Restricted Data environment and handle the appropriate 
material. Any alternative site would need to conduct the 
appropriate environmental impact statement to ensure full 
compliance with environmental statutes. The Committee urges the 
Department to quickly complete the testing and opposes the 
Department moving this test to any other facility, as it would 
be a waste of taxpayer resources. The Committee reminds the 
administration that none of the funds provided may be used for 
activities at the engineering development phases, phase 3 or 
6.3 or beyond, in support of the Robust Nuclear Earth 
Penetrator.
    The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for the warhead 
dismantlement program within stockpile services. The Committee 
urges the NNSA to explore alternatives to more aggressively 
work off the dismantlement backlog, but acknowledges that 
effectively utilizing NNSA site/plant space and throughput 
capacities is challenging in order to balance the priority 
commitment to support the Life Extension Programs.

                               CAMPAIGNS

    Campaigns focus on scientific, technical and engineering 
efforts to develop and maintain critical capabilities and tools 
needed to support stockpile refurbishment and continued 
assessment and certification of the stockpile for the long term 
in the absence of underground nuclear testing. The major 
elements of the campaigns are: science campaigns, engineering 
campaigns, inertial confinement fusion and high yield, advanced 
simulation and computing, pit manufacturing and certification, 
and readiness campaigns.
    Within available funds, the Department is directed to work 
with the UNLV Research Foundation and a consortium of 
universities to continue design, preparation and 
experimentation on the Atlas Machine.
    Science Campaigns.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$307,925,000 for the Science campaign, an increase of 
$46,000,000 above fiscal year 2005 levels. The Science Campaign 
is the principal mechanism for supporting the science required 
to maintain the technical viability of the national nuclear 
weapons laboratories to enable them to respond to emerging 
national security needs. As such the campaign maintains the 
scientific infrastructure of the three weapons laboratories.
    The Department is directed to renew for 5 years the 
existing cooperative agreements with the University of Nevada 
Las Vegas and the University of Nevada Reno. The Department is 
also directed to provide funding of $3,000,000 to each 
institution per year.
    Primary Assessment Technologies.--The Committee recommends 
$55,179,000, an increase of $10,000,000 over the budget 
request, to improve the understanding of boost physics, one of 
the most complex challenges facing weapons designers. To 
understand the performance of materials subjected to extreme 
pressures that occur during a nuclear event, the laboratories 
have developed the capabilities to replicate the extreme 
physical environment in order to support the stockpile 
stewardship activities. The Committee expects the laboratories 
to support these activities with experiments using radiography 
and hydrotests. This data will be used to reduce the 
uncertainties in performance codes. Within the increased level 
of funding $5,000,000 is provided to Los Alamos to initiate 
preliminary design activities and demonstrate the capability of 
proton radiography of the LANSCE facilities in supporting 
stockpile stewardship activities.
    The Committee directs NNSA to fund the Nevada Test Site at 
$15,000,000, an increase of $5,000,000 to maintain NTS dynamic 
experiments, diagnostics, and data analysis, including past UGT 
analysis, at the level necessary to sustain the critical 
personnel skills and institutional viability to meet national 
program goals.
    Test Readiness.--The Committee recommends $25,000,000, the 
same as the budget request and a decrease of $1,784,000 below 
fiscal year 2005 funding levels.
    Dynamic Materials Properties.--The Committee recommends 
$90,894,000, an increase of $10,000,000 above the budget 
request. The Committee provides an additional $5,000,000 above 
the budget request of $20,000,000 to fund the Dynamic Materials 
Properties at the Nevada Test Site [NTS], and directs NNSA to 
make full use of plutonium experiments at the Joint Actinide 
Shock Physics Experimental Research facility [JASPER] and 
experiments on dynamic materials properties at the Atlas 
facility. The Committee opposes the budget request since it is 
unable to adequately support necessary experiments to validate 
thermodynamic properties and better understand material 
properties. Without additional funding, the Atlas Machine at 
the Nevada Test Site would be put on standby. The Committee 
directs the Department to use the increased funds to support 
experiments using the Z machine at Sandia National Lab, gas 
guns at Los Alamos, dynamic materials property tests using 
Atlas and plutonium experiments at the Joint Actinide Shock 
Physics Experimental facility [JASPER] located at the Nevada 
Test Site. The Committee directs the Department to support 
additional funding to Lawrence Livermore National Lab for 
experiments on equation-of-state measurements at JASPER needed 
for primary certification. The Committee recommendation 
includes $1,000,000 for LCS laser upgrades to the Idaho 
Accelerator Center.
    Advanced Radiography.--The Committee recommends 
$59,520,000, an increase of $10,000,000 above the budget 
request. The goal of the Advanced Radiography program is to 
develop multi-axis, multi-time radiographic hydrotest 
capability and to develop techniques for focused physical 
studies. The top priority for NNSA has been the refurbishment 
and reinstallation of the 2nd axis on DARHT. This is a joint 
effort among LANL, LLNL and Lawrence Berkley National Lab. The 
Committee recommends $10,000,000 to support improvements in 
radiography improvements to better diagnostic support on future 
subcritical experiments ad to ensure timely completion of the 
DARHT 2nd axis.
    Secondary Assessment Technologies.--The Committee 
recommends $77,332,000, an increase of $16,000,000. This 
program plays a critical role in developing the Advanced 
Scientific Computing effort to validate experimental data in 
modeling the yield performance of our nuclear systems and the 
impact of aging of materials. This program supports 
hydrodynamic and high-energy-density experiments.
    As a result of NNSA's decision to focus on construction of 
the National Ignition Facility [NIF] rather than focus on 
stockpile research there will be an increased reliance on the Z 
facility at Sandia and the Omega laser at the University of 
Rochester to support critical R&D; efforts. As such, the 
Committee directs the NNSA to support additional experiments on 
Z machine and Omega laser using the increase in funding. 
Failure to provide adequate funding would prevent the labs from 
meeting the necessary campaign milestones.

Engineering Campaigns

    The Committee recommends $272,756,000 for the Engineering 
Campaign, an increase of $14,013,000 over fiscal year 2005 
levels. This campaign provides validation of engineering 
science, modeling and simulation tools necessary to support 
design, qualification and the certification of the stockpile. 
This campaign also supports at an increased level the 
development of surety technologies that are critical to 
ensuring the safe storage and transportation of these weapons.
    Enhanced Surety.--The Committee recommends $45,845,000, an 
increase of $16,000,000 above the request, to provide 
validation technology for inclusion in the stockpile 
refurbishment program to assure that modern nuclear safety 
standards are fully met and a new level of use-denial 
performance is achieved. The Committee recommends $16,000,000 
in additional funding to be provided to research, develop and 
design architectures to integrate required safety, security, 
reliability and use control functions. Work performed under 
this campaign supports all of the current and future stockpile 
activities that will utilize MESA developed micro technologies. 
This funding increase will allow restoration of activities for 
developing surety architectures that will provide increased 
security during storage, transportation and mission-related 
activities. This funding should be used to supplement the 
increased investment in the RRW initiative to ensure that 
enhanced safeguards are included in future modifications to the 
stockpile.
    Weapons Systems.--The Committee recommends $20,040,000, to 
accelerate the acquisition of experimental data necessary to 
validate new models and simulation tools being developed in the 
Advanced Simulation and Computing Campaign.
    Nuclear Survivability.--The Committee recommends 
$25,386,000, an increase of $16,000,000 above the budget 
request to develop and validate tools to simulate nuclear 
environments for survivability assessments and certification; 
restore the capability to provide nuclear-hardened 
microelectronics and microsystem components for the enduring 
stockpile; and accelerate the qualification and certification 
of the neutron generator and the arming, fusing and firing 
system for the refurbished W76. The Committee provides 
$16,000,000 to support work at the MESA facility to design work 
for the W76-1 and other reentry systems to meet the requirement 
for radiation hardening. Sandia National Laboratory retains the 
only expertise in the Nation to develop equipment and 
electronics capable of withstanding intense radiation 
environments.
    Enhanced Surveillance.--The Committee recommendation 
includes $111,207,000 for the Enhanced Surveillance Campaign, 
$15,000,000 above the request. The increase is provided to 
begin enhanced surveillance work to take advantage of the 
accelerated MESA completion and newly-developed ASC simulation 
codes, as well as to encourage the development and deployment 
of advanced surveillance technologies and techniques into RRW 
and the sustainable stockpile. Modern stockpile evaluation 
based upon the enhanced surveillance program activities is 
intended to provide an accurate, more timely and more cost-
effective means for assuring performance of existing stockpile 
systems, upcoming LEPs, and RRW. Funding increases will enable 
the development and implementation of these new techniques, and 
improving their readiness for RRW and the sustainable 
stockpile.
    The Enhanced Surveillance program provides component and 
material lifetime assessments and develops predictive 
capabilities for early identification and assessment of 
stockpile aging concerns. This program supports the University 
Research Program in Robotics at $4,465,000.
    Project 01-D-108 Microsystem and Engineering Science 
Applications [MESA], SNL, Albuquerque, New Mexico.--The 
Committee recommendation includes $65,564,000 to maintain the 
construction schedule consistent with projected stockpile 
needs. The budget also provides $4,714,000 in operating funds 
to support other project costs that are related to the MESA 
line item construction project but are not capitalized.

Inertial Confinement Fusion and High Yield

    The Committee recommends $314,023,000, a reduction of 
$4,482,000 from the budget request for the Inertial Confinement 
Fusion and High Yield Campaign. This allocation restores 
$61,000,000 in funding to the Support of Stockpile and Inertial 
Fusion Technology program that was cut from the budget request.
    National Ignition Facility [NIF].--The Committee is 
disappointed in the long-term funding outlook for Weapons 
Activities contained in the fiscal year 2006 FYNSP. Compared to 
the budget request in fiscal year 2005, Weapons Activities 
funding is reduced by $3,000,000,000 over the next 5 years. 
This decline is likely to have significant programmatic impacts 
and drastically curtail NNSA's scientific capabilities. It is 
difficult to conceive of a single program not being severely 
impacted, including NIF, as a result of the declining budget. 
The Committee is cognizant that the modest funding reduction of 
$25,000,000 in fiscal year 2005 to the NIF program forced NNSA 
managers to rebaseline the entire project. As a result of the 
rebaselining effort, the NNSA has made the decision to support 
the NIF construction effort at the expense of the Inertial 
Confinement Fusion and High Yield Campaigns, putting in 
jeopardy critical high energy stewardship research at Los 
Alamos, Sandia, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories. 
The fiscal year 2006 budget cuts experimental programs that are 
essential in obtaining scientific data for ASC codes. The 
budget proposes the elimination of the Inertial Fusion 
Technology program that supported research on the Z machine and 
High Average Power Laser program. Currently, NIF is able to 
operate four beamlines, making NIF the most powerful laser in 
the world.
    The NNSA has not completed the rebaselining of the NIF 
program, and the Committee directs that no funds be expended on 
project 96-D-111 in order to focus on supporting a 
comprehensive stewardship program.
    Ignition.--The Committee recommends $68,800,000 to support 
experiments at Inertial Confinement facilities to demonstrate 
the principles of thermonuclear fusion. Sufficient funding is 
provided to support computer simulation, target fabrication, 
and target design calculation.
    Support for Other Stockpile Programs.--In order to avoid 
drastic cuts to the ICF program, the Committee recommends 
restoring funding to $41,000,000 to perform experiments on the 
Z-machine to validate computer models as well as experiments on 
OMEGA at the University of Rochester, NY. This is an increase 
of $31,128,000 above the budget request.
    NIF Diagnostics, Cryogenics and Experimental Support.--The 
Committee provides $30,000,000. It is clear from recent 
advances in target research that targets may hold the key to 
significant increases in efficiency. Targets with cryogenic 
fuel, composite ablators, foams, double shells and advanced 
hohlraum designs can compensate for limitation for both 
indirect and direct target concepts. The Committee directs the 
Department to provide $10,000,000 from within available funds 
to accelerate development of targets to support experiments on 
NIF, OMEGA and Z-machine.
    Pulsed Power Inertial Confinement Fusion.--The Committee's 
recommendation provides $10,900,000, a $910,000 increase over 
the budget request for pulsed power ICF to assess Z pinches as 
drivers for ignition and high yield fusion.
    University Grants/Other ICF Support.--The Committee 
provides $7,700,000 for research assistance in high energy 
density science, a level consistent with fiscal year 2005.
    The Committee recommendation includes $5,000,000 to Nevada 
Terawatt Facility. Within the funds provided, $3,000,000 is for 
research into strongly magnetized highly density energy matter 
and $2,000,000 is for construction of the high energy, short-
pulse laser system.
    Facility Operations and Target Production.--The Committee 
provides $54,623,000 as requested to support operations on 
OMEGA and Z-machine. Funds will support target production, 
engineering support, and maintenance.
    Inertial Fusion Technology.--The Committee is disappointed 
that the budget completely eliminated funding with this 
account. As such the Committee has restored the funding to 
$41,000,000 and provides $6,000,000 to prepare Z-machine to 
support extended operations.
    NIF Demonstration.--The Committee recommends $50,000,000 to 
support the NIF Demonstration program. The committee directs 
the NNSA to use this funding to support Stockpile Stewardship 
responsibilities necessary for closeout costs or other impacts 
as a result of the halt in construction and installation.
    High Energy Petawatt Laser Development.--The Committee 
strongly supports the OMEGA petawatt laser and provides 
$10,000,000 an increase of $7,000,000 above the request. The 
funding supports the development and testing of two short 
pulsed laser beams to support the existing capabilities at 
OMEGA in Rochester, New York. The Committee recommendation 
includes an additional $7,000,000 for university grants and 
other support. Of this amount, $3,000,000 is provided for 
continued development of petawatt laser at the University of 
Texas at Austin; $2,000,000 is provided to the University of 
Nevada, Reno to continue its collaboration with Sandia National 
Laboratories on highly diagnosed studies of exploding wire 
arrays and implosion dynamics. The Committee provides 
$2,000,000 to Sandia National Laboratories for Z-Petawatt 
Consortium experiments using the Sandia Z-Beamlet and Z-
Petawatt lasers.
    Construction--Project 96-D-111.--The Committee directs that 
no funds shall be expended for this project.
    The Committee directs the NNSA to continue working with the 
Office of Science and the NSF on interagency coordination and 
support of high energy density physics and high intensity laser 
science. The Committee recommends that the Department form a 
High Energy Density Physics Advisory Committee, drawn from the 
scientific and technical community, to assist in this effort. 
The Committee further directs the Department to provide to the 
Committee a plan for funding and managing non-defense high 
energy density physics research and facilities development by 
March 1, 2006.

Advanced Simulation and Computing

    The Committee recommends $735,830,000, an increase of 
$75,000,000 above the President's budget request, to support 
stockpile refurbishments, annual assessment and certification. 
The Committee acknowledges the important role of the ASC 
Program in Stockpile Stewardship as affirmed by the JASONs' 
study directed by Consolidated Appropriations Resolution, 2003, 
Public Law 108-7. The Committee shares the concerns raised by 
the JASONs about ensuring both adequate capacity and capability 
to meet the growing computational demands of the weapons 
designers and engineers at the laboratories. The Committee 
urges NNSA to further improve code confidence through more 
rigorous analysis. The Committee recognizes that without the 
Advanced Computing program the labs will be unable to certify 
the life extension program designs in the required timeframes. 
Codes based in experimental data are critical to validating the 
calculated changes to a physics package that will be included 
in the life extension program. As the labs enter a new phase in 
the life extension program through the RRW program, improved 
computer modeling will be critical to designing and deploying 
more reliable and interchangeable parts.
    The Committee is aware of the enormous management and 
technical challenge the NNSA has faced in establishing the ASC 
program over the past 10 years. The Committee is supportive of 
NNSA's proposed transition to a product-focused initiative that 
will integrate the experimental data and enhance the 
predictability to answer challenging questions researchers have 
yet to solve. In fiscal year 2006, the ASC program is expected 
to deliver an advanced physics and engineering simulation 
capability to support the W76 and the W80 life extension 
certifications. The Committee supports the ASC challenge to 
complete the modern baseline that reflects the comprehensive 
physics baseline of our enduring stockpile with ASC codes by 
fiscal year 2009. In order for the NNSA to meet these 
milestones and complete its transition to a product based 
program that serves, the Committee directs the Secretary to 
withhold funding of earmarks that do not directly support the 
stockpile stewardship mission within the ASC program until the 
Secretary certifies in writing to Congress on an annual basis 
that the ASC program remains on track to meet the annual 
milestones, as well as goals laid out in the NNSA 5-year plan.
    The Committee recognizes that there is a need for much 
faster computer systems to perform the most complicated weapons 
systems analyses. The Committee recommends an increase of 
$75,000,000 to acquire a 150 teraflop computing system at Los 
Alamos to decrease the time required for the large weapons 
related calculations and to increase the productivity of the 
scientists. Currently, Los Alamos is working on a life 
extension program for the W76. The Committee has been informed 
that one calculation to support the LEP has been running for 19 
months on a 20 teraflop machine. This is an unacceptable 
timeframe. The purchase of the new 150 TF machine will reduce 
the runtime from 19 months to just 3 months for the same 
calculation. In 2003 the Committee charged JASON and the 
National Academies to report on the requirements drivers and 
computer architectural directions chosen by the Advanced 
Simulation and Computing program. The studies recognized that 
Stockpile Stewardship simulation demands oversubscribe current 
resources and that a diversity of supercomputer architectures 
is needed to meet the demanding obligations of Stewardship. 
Demands of the Life Extension Programs in particular and 
Stockpile Stewardship in general do not allow the reallocation 
of leading systems to single problems for any extended period 
of time. The Blue Gene/L system at Lawrence Livermore National 
Laboratory, and its focus on critical nuclear weapons science, 
only fulfills part of the mission needs. While this system 
effectively targets weapons aging issues, by design it is not 
suited to advance the complex full-weapons-systems simulation. 
The Committee agrees with study recommendations and recognizes 
the need to support the most demanding requirements.
    From within amounts provided, the Committee recommends that 
no less than $269,800,000 is provided to Los Alamos National 
Laboratory; $243,700,000 for Lawrence Livermore National 
Laboratory; and $162,500,000 for Sandia National Laboratory to 
support the Advanced Simulation and Computing Campaign. In 
addition, the Committee provides $55,000,000 for the capacity 
computing requirements to support the W76-1 LEP.

Pit Manufacturing and Certification

    The Committee recommendation includes a total of 
$248,760,000 for the pit manufacturing and certification 
campaign, the same as the budget request. This amount includes 
$182,821,000 to support the manufacturing and certification of 
a W88 pit consistent with the project baseline. The Committee 
directs the NNSA to revise as appropriate the pit production 
and certification plan and submit the report to the relevant 
congressional committees by March 31, 2005, and annually 
thereafter.
    Modern Pit Facility.--The Committee recommendation includes 
a total of $7,686,000, the same as the budget request.

Readiness Campaigns

    Stockpile Readiness Campaign.--The Committee recommends 
$218,755,000 for the stockpile readiness campaign, the amount 
of the request. This program, initiated in fiscal year 2001, 
enables the Y-12 National Security Complex to replace or 
restore production capability and to modernize aging 
facilities. At present, all of the critical manufacturing 
capabilities required for weapons refurbishments at Y-12 do not 
exist.
    High Explosives and Weapons Operations.--The Committee 
recommends $17,097,000 to establish production-scale high 
explosives manufacturing and qualification; to deploy and 
validate technologies and facilities for production re-
qualification; and, to demonstrate and validate Enterprise 
Integration and Collaborative Manufacturing.
    Non-Nuclear Readiness.--The Committee recommends 
$28,630,000, to deploy commercial products and processes for 
components supporting the B61, W80, and W76 stockpile life 
extension programs; to modify existing tritium loading and 
cleaning facilities to support stockpile life extension 
programs; and, to support neutron target loading and detonator 
production.
    Tritium Readiness.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$87,588,000 for the tritium readiness campaign, the same as the 
request. This includes funding for the construction of the 
Tritium extraction facility at the requested level of 
$24,894,000.
    Advanced Design and Production Technologies.--The Committee 
recommends $54,040,000.
    Cooperative Agreements.--The Committee recognizes that 
cooperative agreements with universities are important 
resources for developing essential technical data for stockpile 
stewardship. Additionally, such long-term relationships with 
universities allow considerable opportunity for promoting 
advanced studies and recruiting the future workforce in 
technical areas that are critical to the continuing stewardship 
enterprise. The Committee remains supportive of this activity 
and directs the administration to honor existing cooperative 
agreements as this new office implements its responsibilities. 
The Committee is aware of the successful partnerships between 
the NNSA and the University of Nevada-Las Vegas and the 
University of Nevada-Reno that have been fostered through a 
series of cooperative agreements. The Department is encouraged 
to renew these agreements.

               READINESS IN TECHNICAL BASE AND FACILITIES

    The Committee recommendation includes $1,696,336,000 an 
increase of $64,950,000 from the budget request.
    The readiness in technical base and facilities [RTBF] 
program provides the underlying physical infrastructure and 
operational readiness for the directed stockpile work and 
campaign programs. RTBF activities include ensuring that 
facilities are operational, safe, secure, and in compliance 
with regulatory requirements, and that a defined level of 
readiness is sustained at facilities funded by the Office of 
Defense Programs.
    Operations of Facilities.--The Committee recommends 
$1,200,483,000, an increase of $39,700,000, to maintain 
readiness for all RTBF facilities. The Committee provides an 
additional $15,000,000 above the budget request to support 
operation and recapitalization of facilities at the Nevada Test 
Site [NTS], specifically the Device Assembly Facility 
preparations for expanded missions, the Joint Actinide Shock 
Physics Experimental Research facility, Big Explosive 
Experimental Facility [BEEF], U1a Complex, and other projects. 
The Committee recommendation includes an additional $11,000,000 
within the funds provided for modification of the Z-Beamlet 
laser at the Z Pinch at Sandia National Laboratories. The 
Committee provides $12,000,000 from within available funds to 
support MESA Operations. The Committee provides an additional 
$20,000,000 for facility upgrades at the Kansas City Plant, to 
be distributed as follows: $5,000,000 is provided to replace 
machinery essential to support the Life Extension Programs; 
$7,000,000 to address deferred maintenance to machinery; and 
$5,700,000 to support infrastructure improvement.
    The Committee recommendation includes $2,500,000 for the 
UNLV Research Foundation to support the ongoing programs of the 
Institute for Security Studies. The Committee provides an 
additional $3,000,000 above the budget request for the Advanced 
Monitoring Systems Initiative at the NTS to continue micro-
sensing technology deployment and prototype deployment of 
remote monitoring systems for the underground test area.
    The Committee recommendation provides an additional 
$15,000,000 to improve and upgrade existing roads at the Nevada 
Test Site and an additional $4,000,000 to install two new water 
storage tanks in Area 6 of the NTS. The Committee provides 
$1,000,000 to purchase and install a Geographic Information 
Center at the NTS. Additionally, the Committee recommendation 
provides $4,000,000 to install a 17-mile fiber optic link 
between the Nevada Test Site and Indians Springs Air Force 
Base; and $4,500,000 to upgrade the Emergency Operations Center 
within the Nevada Support Facility to meet national program 
goals.
    The recommendation also includes, within funds provided, 
$3,000,000 for the Consortium for Terrorism and Fire Science at 
UNR.
    Program Readiness.--The Committee recommends $105,738,000, 
the same as the budget request, to enhance readiness and 
maintain materials processing and component manufacturing 
readiness.
    Special Projects.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$19,869,000 for special projects. Within the available funds, 
$250,000 for the continuing operations and security at the 
Atomic Testing History Institute; $2,000,000 to the UNLV 
Research Foundation to continue support of the radioanalytical 
services laboratory. The Committee provides $3,500,000 to the 
not-for-profit Technology Ventures Corporations to continue the 
successful technology transfer and commercialization efforts at 
the National Laboratories and the Nevada Test Site. The 
Committee provides $2,500,000 for the National Museum of 
Nuclear Science and History.
    The Committee recommends $1,250,000 for the Arrowhead 
Center at New Mexico State University. The Committee provides 
$2,000,000 for Rapid Prototyping activities at the Special 
Technology Laboratory in Santa Barbara, CA to accelerate 
development of sensor and live plume tracking capabilities at 
the Nevada Test Site. The Committee recommendation also 
includes $2,000,000 for a public-private partnership to 
continue the test and evaluation of water filtration technology 
to protect the public against nuclear, biological, and chemical 
threats. The Committee recommends $1,000,000 to continue the 
ongoing administration infrastructure support grant for the 
UNLV Research Foundation.
    Material Recycle and Recovery.--The Committee recommends 
$72,730,000, the amount of the budget request.
    Construction Projects.--The Committee recommends an 
appropriation of $255,047,000, for construction projects under 
Readiness in Technical Base and Facilities.
    The Committee continues to be concerned about the fire 
station support at the Nevada Test Site and is pleased by the 
decision to use a design-build acquisition strategy for the 
fire stations and encourages completion at the earliest 
possible time within the funding that has been provided. 
$65,000,000 is provided to the 4-D-125 the CMR Replacement 
facility. In 1999, NNSA approved a strategy to managing risk at 
CMR that recognized the facility could not continue its mission 
at acceptable level of risk to the workforce without 
operational restrictions. The CMRR project will allow the NNSA 
to consolidate the critical stewardship mission support 
functions including analytical chemistry, materials 
characterization, and actinide R&D; located in the existing 
facility. The Committee recognizes and fully supports the 
NNSA's efforts to construct the CMR Replacement facility near 
the TA-55 plutonium facility to ensure Los Alamos will be able 
to fully support its ongoing plutonium mission.
    Project 05-D-140, Project Engineering and Design [PED]--
RTBF, Various Locations.--The Committee recommends an 
additional $2,000,000 for the Test Capabilities Revitalization 
project at Sandia National Laboratory.

         FACILITIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE RECAPITALIZATION PROGRAM

    The Committee recommendation includes $261,809,000, a 
reduction of $21,700,000 below the request.
    The facilities and infrastructure recapitalization program 
is a multi-year but limited term effort to restore the physical 
infrastructure of the weapons complex and eliminate the 
maintenance backlog. The program provides funds to accomplish 
deferred maintenance and utilities replacement while improving 
facility management practices to preclude further 
deterioration.

                      SECURE TRANSPORTATION ASSET

    The Committee recommendation includes a total of 
$212,100,000.
    The secure transportation asset program provides for the 
safe, secure movement of nuclear weapons, special nuclear 
material, and weapon components between military locations and 
nuclear complex facilities within the United States.

                   NUCLEAR WEAPONS INCIDENT RESPONSE

    Formerly funded in the Readiness in Technical Base and 
Facilities account, the program funding for emergency 
management and radiological emergency response activities 
ensures a central point of contact and an integrated response 
to radiological emergencies. The Committee recommends 
$118,796,000, the amount of the request.

                        SAFEGUARDS AND SECURITY

    The Committee recommendation includes $740,478,000, the 
same as the request.
    The safeguards and security line identifies the funding 
necessary for all safeguard and security requirements (except 
for personnel security investigations) at NNSA landlord sites, 
specifically the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los 
Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, the 
Nevada Test Site, Kansas City Plant, Pantex Plant, Y-12 Plant, 
and the Savannah River Site Tritium Facilities. The Committee 
directs NNSA to fund the Nevada Site Office security budget at 
the fiscal year 2006 request of $62,000,000 and provide an 
additional $20,000,000 to fully staff the security force at the 
Device Assembly Facility, including the full implementation of 
the protective force Special Response Team program. The 
Committee provides $20,000,000 to complete the expansion of the 
red network at Los Alamos in order to reduce the necessity for 
CREM. The Committee provides within available funds $12,000,000 
to reinvigorate security research development, test and 
evaluation. Without the assistance of innovative technological 
solutions, most sites are forced to rely on protective forces. 
Technology can be a force multiplier, but without investment in 
advanced security technology research and development new 
technologies will not be realized. The Committee provides 
$1,900,000 to deploy and demonstrate an enterprise PKI for 
secure authentication and communication at Sandia National 
Laboratory.

                    Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $1,409,033,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   1,637,239,000
House allowance.........................................   1,500,959,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,729,066,000

    The Committee recommendation includes $1,729,066,000 for 
defense nuclear nonproliferation, an increase of $91,827,000.
    The Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation account funds programs 
and activities to (1) prevent the spread of materials, 
technology, and expertise relating to weapons of mass 
destruction; (2) detect the proliferation of weapons of mass 
destruction worldwide; (3) provide for international nuclear 
safety, and (4) eliminate inventories of surplus fissile 
materials usable for nuclear weapons. These highly important 
initiatives address the danger that hostile nations or 
terrorist groups may acquire weapons of mass destruction or 
weapons-usable material, dual-use production technology or 
weapons of mass destruction expertise. The major elements of 
the program include the following: nonproliferation and 
verification research and development, nonproliferation and 
international security, and nonproliferation programs with 
Russia.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of the Nuclear 
Nonproliferation Treaty [NPT] in preventing states of concern 
and terrorists from acquiring or developing nuclear weapons. 
Developments with North Korea and Iran as well as the A.Q. Khan 
nuclear black market underscore the need to strengthen the NPT. 
The Committee is concerned that efforts to strengthen the NPT 
have been weakened by the allegation that U.S. nuclear weapons 
policy is not consistent with its commitment under Article VI 
of the NPT to work toward general and complete disarmament. The 
nuclear posture and nonproliferation policies of the United 
States are consistent with its obligations under Article VI. 
The United States nuclear stockpile is the smallest in many 
decades, and it is not developing new generations of nuclear 
weapons. The Committee urges the Department of Energy to focus 
on the primary challenge of strengthening the NPT by closing 
the loopholes that enable countries to develop weapons programs 
under the guise of peaceful nuclear energy programs. The 
Committee also urges the Department to use any and all 
incentives available to accelerate conversion of research 
reactors fueled with highly-enriched uranium [HEU] to low 
enriched uranium to eliminate the use of HEU in the civilian 
sector.

         NONPROLIFERATION VERIFICATION RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommendation includes $297,218,000, an 
increase of $30,000,000.
    The nonproliferation and verification research and 
development program conducts applied research, development, 
testing, and evaluation leading to prototype demonstrations and 
detection systems that are critical to the United States 
response to current and projected threats posed by the 
proliferation of nuclear weapons, and diversion of special 
nuclear material. The program works directly with agencies 
responsible for monitoring proliferation and combating 
terrorism.
    The Committee recommendation includes $2,500,000 for the 
UNLV Research Foundation support of nonproliferation activities 
at Institute for Security Studies.
    The Committee supports the nuclear and radiological 
national security program. The NNSA is directed to provide for 
the sustained development of advanced technologies needed to 
counter nuclear terrorism threats and should focus on improving 
capabilities through research and development in threat 
assessment and prediction, basic nuclear understanding, sensors 
and detection systems, consequence mitigation, forensics and 
attribution and render-safe technologies.
    The Committee recommends $10,000,000 to support a research 
and development program in the NNSA, through the national 
laboratories and drawing on the expertise of the Science 
programs, to provide a foundation and long term R&D; capability 
in chemical and biological detection.
    Project 06-D-180, National Nuclear Security Administration 
Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Program, Project Engineering 
and Design [PED], National Security Laboratory, PPNL, 
Washington.--The Committee recommendation includes $13,000,000.
    The Committee recommends $2,000,000 to begin the conceptual 
design effort to design a facility to accommodate the security 
category of III/IV radiological mission, materials and 
activities currently housed at TA-18.

              NONPROLIFERATION AND INTERNATIONAL SECURITY

    The Committee recommendation includes $90,173,000, an 
increase of $9,827,000 from the request to adequately fund 
Global Threat Reduction Initiative. The Committee supports the 
administration's efforts to remove and secure high-risk nuclear 
and radiological materials and equipment around the world that 
pose a threat to the United States and its allies by: 
consolidating, accelerating, and expanding the Department's 
nuclear materials removal efforts; enhancing the security of 
vulnerable radiological materials worldwide; and identifying 
nuclear and radiological materials and equipment not being 
addressed by current nonproliferation activities.
    The nonproliferation and international security program 
supports activities to: control the export of items and 
technology useful for weapons of mass destruction [WMD]; 
implement international safeguards in conjunction with the 
International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA]; monitor and 
implement treaties and agreements; develop and implement policy 
in support of international security efforts aimed at securing 
high-risk nuclear material; develop and implement transparency 
measures to assure international nonproliferation and arms 
control commitments; and explore and implement innovative 
approaches to improve regional security. The Committee directs 
the Department to provide $5,000,000 in grants to institutions 
of higher learning and non-profit entities for research related 
to nuclear nonproliferation and chemical and biological weapons 
detection. Each individual grant provided shall not exceed 
$500,000.
    The recommendation includes $10,000,000 to reinvigorate 
initiatives focused on removing nuclear materials from 
vulnerable sites around the world. These activities are 
essential to prevent terrorist groups or states hostile to the 
United States from acquiring destructive nuclear capabilities.

       INTERNATIONAL NUCLEAR MATERIALS PROTECTION AND COOPERATION

    The Committee recommendation includes $343,435,000, the 
same as the request. This program will continue to improve the 
security for nuclear material and weapons in Russia by 
installing basic rapid upgrades and through comprehensive 
security improvements.
    The Committee continues to believe that these activities 
are critical elements of the United States nonproliferation 
efforts.
    Regarding the second line of defense activities, the 
Committee urges the NNSA to continue its efforts in the use of 
integrated monitoring methodology for special nuclear 
monitoring detection at airports, ports, and border crossing in 
the former Soviet Union and newly independent States. The 
Committee provides $97,929,000 for Second Line of Defense 
Activities, including $73,929,000 for the Megaports program.

             GLOBAL INITIATIVE FOR PROLIFERATION PREVENTION

    The Committee recommendation includes $50,890,000 to 
support the Global Initiative for Proliferation Prevention 
[GIPP]. In fiscal year 2005, this account was formerly named 
the Russian Transition Initiatives [RTI] and supported the 
funding for the Initiatives for Proliferation Prevention and 
the Nuclear Cities Initiative [NCI]. Although the names have 
changed the purpose remains the same. The Department recognizes 
that scientists in other countries are seeking to, or are 
already working on developing the capability for nuclear, 
biological, or chemical weapons. Consistent with the successful 
mission of the former RTI programs, the Department should look 
to engage scientists outside the former Soviet Union in useful 
scientific discovery and cooperation. The Department should 
continue to support the original activities within Russia, but 
seek to expand its cooperation with other countries that pose 
the highest risk of developing weapons of mass destruction.
    HEU Transparency Implementation.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $20,483,000 to support continued work 
with Russia to provide confidence to the United States that the 
Russian highly enriched uranium [HEU] being converted is from 
its military stockpile, consistent with the 1993 United States-
Russia HEU Purchase Agreement.
    Elimination of Weapons-Grade Plutonium Production 
Program.--The Committee recommendation includes $152,000,000 
for this program to assist the Russian Federation in ceasing 
its production of weapons-grade plutonium production by 
providing replacement power production capacity.
    The Committee recommends $20,000,000 to support conversion 
of the Zheleznogorsk plutonium reactor.
    In 2004, Congress authorized the Department to use 
international funds for the EWGPP program without further 
appropriation and without fiscal year limitation. Additionally, 
the Department is authorized and encouraged to develop and 
implement cost-sharing options with the Russian Federation, 
when practicable.
    Fissile Materials Disposition.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $653,065,000. This program conducts 
activities in both the United States and Russia to dispose of 
fissile materials that would pose a threat to the United States 
if acquired by hostile nations or terrorist groups.
    Excess weapons grade plutonium in Russia is a clear and 
present danger to the security of the United States because of 
the possibility that it will fall into the hands of non-Russian 
entities or provide Russia with the ability to rebuild its 
nuclear arsenal at a rate the United States may be unable to 
equal. For that reason, the Committee considers the 
Department's material disposition program of comparable 
importance to weapons activities; both are integral components 
of our national effort to reduce any threat posed to the United 
States and to deter the threat that remains.
    The Committee understands the important role the U.S. 
plutonium disposition program plays in the Department's 
domestic efforts to consolidate and dispose of inventories of 
surplus weapons-grade plutonium. The consolidation and the safe 
disposals of this material from across the complex will 
significantly lower safety and security costs, and facilitate 
the closure of former nuclear weapons sites across the NNSA 
complex. Any effort to eliminate funding for this project will 
likely foreclose a disposal pathway for plutonium stored at 
Savannah River causing the Department to pay the State of South 
Carolina up to $100,000,000 per year in fines starting in 2011. 
Without a viable disposal solution, the cleanup of the Hanford 
Site and arrangements for decreasing inventories of plutonium 
at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Pantex Plant 
will cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars annually 
for storage and related Design Basis Threat activities.

                              CONSTRUCTION

    Project 99-D-141 Pit Disassembly & Conversion Facility.--
The Committee recommends $24,000,000, the same as the budget 
request.
    Project 99-D-143 Mixed Oxide [MOX] Fuel Fabrication 
Facility.--The Committee recommends $338,565,000, the same as 
the request.

                   GLOBAL THREAT REDUCTION INITIATIVE

    The Global Threat Reduction Initiative mission is to 
identify, secure, remove high-risk, vulnerable nuclear and 
radiological materials and equipment around the world that pose 
a potential threat to the United States and the International 
community. The Committee encourages the Department to increase 
its efforts to accelerate the return of highly enriched uranium 
[HEU] from research and test reactors worldwide. The Committee 
provides $108,975,000, an increase of $11,000,000 above the 
budget request. The Committee has provided this funding 
increase to the Radiological Threat Reduction program to 
establish a pilot program that would utilize commercial or non-
governmental resources for recovery, storage and monitoring of 
greater than class C domestic radiological sealed sources.
    The Committee provides an addition $7,000,000 to support 
the conversion of highly enriched uranium core to a low 
enriched uranium core for as many as four university research 
reactors located in the United States. The reactors targeted 
for conversion are Purdue University, Oregon State, University 
of Wisconsin and Washington State.

                             Naval Reactors

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $801,437,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     786,000,000
House allowance.........................................     799,500,000
Committee recommendation................................     799,500,000

    The Committee recommendation includes $799,500,000, an 
increase of $13,500,000 above the budget request. The increase 
is to be transferred to the office of Nuclear Energy to support 
the Idaho National Laboratory's Advanced Test Reactor.
    The Naval Reactors account funds the design, development, 
and testing necessary to provide the Navy with safe, militarily 
effective nuclear propulsion plants in keeping with the 
Nation's nuclear-powered fleet defense requirements. Naval 
Reactors will continue to develop nuclear reactor plant 
components and systems for the Navy's new attack submarine and 
next-generation aircraft carriers, and continue to maintain the 
highest standards of environmental stewardship by responsibly 
inactivating shut down prototype reactor plants.

                      Office of the Administrator

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $353,350,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     343,869,000
House allowance.........................................     366,869,000
Committee recommendation................................     343,869,000

    The Committee recommendation includes the budget request of 
$343,869,000.
    The Office of the Administrator account provides corporate 
planning and oversight for programs funded by the Weapons 
Activities, Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation, and Naval 
Reactors appropriations including the National Nuclear Security 
Administration field offices. This account provides the Federal 
salaries and other expenses of the Administrator's direct 
staff, headquarters employees, and employees at the field 
service center and site offices. Program Direction for Naval 
Reactors remains within that program's account, and program 
direction for the Secure Transportation Asset remains in 
Weapons Activities.
    Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation.--The Committee provides 
$70,000,000 for the Federal Employees in Office of Defense 
Nuclear Nonproliferation to allow for greater flexibility for 
that office for hiring and supporting the Federal staff. Both 
the budget request and the Committee recognize the increasing 
role this office and staff play in global nonproliferation 
efforts. As such it is critical that this office is provided 
sufficient funding and support to fulfill it national security 
mission.

               ENVIRONMENTAL AND OTHER DEFENSE ACTIVITIES


              Environmental Management Transition to NNSA

    On March 24, 2004, the Administrator of the National 
Nuclear Security Administration [NNSA] announced that NNSA 
would assume responsibilities for both newly generated and 
legacy wastes, and environmental remediation at NNSA sites 
beginning in fiscal year 2006. In his announcement, the 
Administrator stated that NNSA management of newly generated 
waste would reside with the generator, in this case principally 
the Office of Defense Programs [NA-10]. Having been assigned 
authority for the long-term stewardship of the Nation's nuclear 
weapons program by the NNSA Act, the Committee was concerned 
that in accepting responsibility for managing legacy waste and 
environmental remediation, the NNSA may be forced to divert 
funds from or dilute its focus on weapons activities. As such, 
the Committee does not support the transfer of cleanup 
responsibility to the NNSA and expects the Office of 
Environmental Management make environmental remediation its 
sole responsibility. The Committee has adopted a new budget 
structure that more accurately tracks environmental cleanup 
expenditures by site and project.
    The mission of the Office of Environmental Management is 
the cleanup and risk reduction of the environmental impact as a 
result of the nuclear weapons program. For over 50 years, the 
Department and its predecessor agencies supported nuclear 
weapons production and energy research that has created million 
of gallons of waste and thousands of tons of contaminated soil, 
material and nuclear fuel. All of this legacy material must be 
addressed in an effective way.
    Since 2001 the program has succeeded in making significant 
progress by reducing the life-cycle cost on a comparable scope 
basis by $50,000,000,000 and reducing the time frame by 35 
years. The Committee is supportive of these efforts and 
encourages the Department to continue keep the remaining sites 
on track.
    Reprogramming.--The Committee continues to support the need 
for flexibility to meet the changing funding requirements at 
the sites. In fiscal year 2006, the Department may transfer up 
to $5,000,000 between control points, as noted in the table 
below, to reduce health or safety risks or to gain cost savings 
as long as no program or project is increase or decreased by 
more than $5,000,000 once during the fiscal year. This 
reprogramming authority may not be used to initiate new program 
or programs specifically denied, limited, or increased by 
Congress in the Act or report. The Committees on Appropriations 
of the House and the Senate must be notified within 30 days of 
the use of this reprogramming authority.

                     Defense Environmental Cleanup

Appropriations, 2005....................................  $6,808,319,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................   6,015,044,000
House allowance.........................................   6,468,366,000
Committee recommendation................................   6,366,441,000

    The Committee's recommendation for Defense Environmental 
Cleanup totals $6,366,441,000, an increase of $351,397,000 
above budget request of $6,015,044,000. The Committee does not 
support the proposed transfer of environmental cleanup 
responsibilities from the Office of Environmental Management to 
the National Nuclear Security Administration [NNSA]. By 
restoring these core cleanup responsibilities to the Office of 
Environmental Management the Defense Environmental Cleanup 
budget is increased by $222,887,000. The Committee recommends 
that the Department provide any carry over balances for WERC a 
consortium for environmental education and technology 
development, be provided to support an educational foundation 
with that organization. Within the amounts provided, the 
Department is directed to fund hazardous waste worker training 
at $10,000,000.
    Closure Sites.--The Committee recommendation provides 
$1,008,589,000, the same as the budget request. Cleanup of this 
category of sites is expected to be complete in fiscal year 
2006. The recommendation provides $579,950,000 for Rocky Flats, 
Colorado; $327,609,000 for Fernald, Ohio; $16,000,000 for 
Ashtabula, Ohio; $75,530,000 for Miamisburg, Ohio; and 
$9,500,000 for West Jefferson site, Columbus, Ohio.
    Savannah River Site.--The Committee recommendation provides 
$1,247,082,000, an increase of $18,000,000 to address solid 
waste stabilization and soil and water remediation for cleanup 
at the Savannah River Site. The Committee supports the request 
of $10,000,000 for the melt and dilute technology for excess 
weapons-grade plutonium. The Committee believes this project is 
appropriately managed by the Office of Environmental 
Management.
    Waste Isolation Pilot Plant [WIPP].--The Committee 
recommendation provides $230,629,000 for the Waste Isolation 
Pilot Project. The Committee recommends $6,000,000 to purchase 
TRUPACT-III shipping containers which will allow the Department 
to accommodate large shipments to WIPP and reduce worker 
exposure by not requiring materials to be repackaged. The 
recommendation includes an additional $3,500,000 which shall be 
made available to the Carlsbad community for educational 
support, infrastructure improvements, and related initiatives 
to address the impacts of accelerated operations.
    The Committee understands that the Carlsbad Field Office 
has established a joint task force with the City of Carlsbad to 
evaluate the needs, functions, and requirements of a record 
center in Carlsbad. In order to provide more timely information 
in a useable format to citizens, researchers, stakeholders, and 
regulators, the Committee provides an additional $5,000,000 and 
directs the Department to consolidate at Carlsbad all record 
archives relevant to the operations of WIPP and the TRU waste 
in the repository under a new contract.
    The Committee directs the Department to utilize up to 
$2,000,000 from within funds available to the Office of 
Environmental Management to support the important work of the 
Center for Excellence in Hazardous Materials.
    The Committee provides $1,500,000 from within available 
funds for Neutrino research.
    Waste Analysis Requirements for the Waste Isolation Pilot 
Plant [WIPP].--The Committee recognizes that the WIPP facility 
is central to the cleanup of the nuclear weapons complex and 
that waste should be emplaced as quickly and safely as 
possible--for reasons of reducing clean-up costs, public 
safety, and with the growing threat of radiological terrorism 
and for national security. Current law and regulation regarding 
the sampling and analysis of waste destined for WIPP produces 
substantial health and safety risks to workers with little if 
any corresponding public benefit.
    Idaho National Laboratory.--The Committee recommendation 
provides $544,725,000, an increase of $13,000,000 above the 
request. The Committee has modified the request to accelerate 
the construction of the Sodium Bearing Waste Treatment Project 
at Idaho National Laboratory. The Committee recommends an 
additional $39,270,000 to begin construction of Project 06-D-
401, Sodium Bearing Waste Treatment Project. The Committee has 
offset this increase by reducing PBS ID-0014B, operating 
expenses by $26,700,000 and $13,000,000 in additional budget 
authority.
    Oak Ridge Reservation.--The Committee recommendation 
provides $221,854,000, an increase of $25,302,000 above the 
budget request. The Committee recommends reallocating funds to 
restore funding to the original closure contract baseline for 
the Melton Valley. The Department has recommended offsets be 
taken from Safeguards and Security PBS OR-0040 without any 
impact to the program.
    Hanford Site.--The Committee recommendation provides 
$749,717,000, the same as the budget request for the Hanford 
Site.
    The Committee recommendation provides $5,861,000 to operate 
the waste disposal facility, $1,813,000 for spent fuel 
stabilization and storage, and $15,411,000 for Richland 
community and regulatory support, the same as the budget 
request. Within available funds, the Committee recommendation 
includes $6,500,000 for the Volpentest Hazardous Materials 
Management and Emergency Response [HAMMER] training and 
education center. The Department is expected to continue making 
PILT payments at last year's level to counties that have the 
Hanford reservation within their boundaries. The Committee 
recognizes that the Department has been taking steps to 
increase the involvement of, and cooperation with, its co-
trustees on natural resource damages issues. The Committee 
encourages the Department to continue those efforts, including 
funding for the other natural resource trustees to provide 
technical assistance in cleanup matters.
    Office of River Protection.--The Committee recommendation 
provides $962,699,000, an increase of $34,393,000 above the 
budget request. Within the available funds, the Committee 
recommends $328,840,000 an increase of $34,393,000 to address 
tank waste stabilization and disposition.
    Program Direction.--The Committee recommendation provides 
$230,931,000.
    Program Support.--The Committee recommendation provides 
$32,846,000 for program support, the same as the budget 
request.
    Federal Contribution to Uranium Enrichment Decontamination 
and Decommissioning Fund.--The Energy Policy Act of 1992 
(Public Law 102-486) created the Uranium Enrichment 
Decontamination and Decommissioning Fund to pay for the cost of 
cleanup of the gaseous diffusion facilities located in Oak 
Ridge, Tennessee; Paducah, Kentucky; and Portsmouth, Ohio. The 
Committee recommendation includes the budget request of 
$451,000,000 for the Federal contribution to the Uranium 
Enrichment Decontamination and Decommissioning Fund as 
authorized in Public Law 102-486.

    NNSA Sites and Nevada Off-sites.--The Committee 
recommendation provides $352,757,000, an increase of 
$207,702,000 over the budget request. The increase reflects the 
return of cleanup activities to the Environmental Management 
program that otherwise would have transferred to the NNSA. The 
Committee recommends $5,300,000 for Stabilization of Los Alamos 
Airport Landfill.
    Safeguards and Security.--The Committee recommendation 
provides $287,223,000, the same as the budget request.

                        Other Defense Activities

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $687,149,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     635,998,000
House allowance.........................................     702,498,000
Committee recommendation................................     661,998,000

    The Other Defense Activities account provides funding for 
the following Departmental offices and functions: security; 
intelligence; counterintelligence; independent oversight and 
performance assurance; defense-related environment, safety and 
health support; worker and community transition, legacy 
management; and hearings and appeals.

              OFFICE OF SECURITY AND PERFORMANCE ASSURANCE

    The Committee recommendation includes $321,095,000, 
$20,000,000 above the budget request.
    The security program consists of the following elements: 
nuclear safeguards and security, security investigations, and 
program direction. These programs provide policy for the 
protection of the Department's nuclear weapons, nuclear 
materials, classified information, and facilities. They ensure 
a Department-wide capability to continue essential functions 
across a wide range of potential emergencies, allowing DOE to 
uphold its national security responsibilities and provide 
security clearances for Federal and contractor personnel.

                     ENVIRONMENT, SAFETY AND HEALTH

    The Committee recommendation includes a total of 
$83,029,000 in the budget request. The Committee provides 
$7,000,000 to undertake the Chernobyl Research and Service 
Project.
    The defense-related environment, safety and health program 
is a corporate resource that provides Departmental leadership 
and management to protect the workers, public, and environment 
in the areas of oversight, health studies, radiation effects 
research, employee compensation support, and program direction.
    The Committee supports the Radiation Effects Research 
Foundation at the requested level to carry out the scientific 
work, which the United States has funded since 1947, to study 
the health effects associated with the atomic blast over 
Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
    The Committee recommendation includes $5,000,000 for the 
DOE Worker Records Digitization project in Nevada.
    Former Worker Medical Screening.--The Committee directs the 
Secretary to allocate $16,500,000 for the former worker medical 
screening programs, $4,000,000 above the budget request. From 
within available funds the Committee directs $465,000 to extend 
medical screening and outreach to current and former workers at 
the three gaseous diffusion plants [GDP] in Portsmouth, Ohio, 
Paducah, Kentucky and Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The Committee 
directs the Secretary to allocate $1,000,000 to carry out 
medical screening and outreach to former workers at the Mound 
facility in Miamisburg, Ohio; and $1,000,000 for medical 
screening and outreach for former workers at the Fernald 
facility in Harrison, Ohio, who were employed after 1985. The 
Committee directs the Secretary to commence a program of early 
lung cancer detection using helical low dose CT technology for 
all workers who are at elevated risk of lung cancer at the Y-12 
and X-10 facilities in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, consistent with 
the eligibility protocols established for the three GDPs. Given 
that the cancer screening program carried out at the three GDPs 
since 2000 has identified the majority of lung cancers at early 
stages where surgical intervention is likely to be successful, 
and which has led to an increase in survival rates; and given 
the increased rates of lung cancer identified in health studies 
at Y-12, it is appropriate to extend lung screening to at-risk 
workers at the Oak Ridge Y-12 and X-10 facilities. The 
Committee supports DOE's plan to continue and extend its 
regional medical screening projects in fiscal year 2006. To 
offset the increases, the Committee allocates $2,700,000 in 
fiscal year 2006, for activities under the DOE-HHS Memorandum 
of Agreement, and directs the Department to prioritize funds 
for the work of the National Center for Environmental Health at 
Los Alamos National Labs, and to fully support the research 
work of the Health Energy Related Branch of the National 
Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

                           LEGACY MANAGEMENT

    The Committee recommendation includes $45,076,000, the same 
as the budget request.

                 DEFENSE-RELATED ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT

    The Committee recommendation includes $87,575,000 for 
National Security Programs Administrative support. This fund 
pays for departmental services that are provided in support of 
the National Nuclear Security Administration.

                FUNDING FOR DEFENSE ACTIVITIES IN IDAHO

    The Committee recommendation includes $123,873,000 to fund

request, $75,008,000 for Idaho site-wide safeguards and 
security, the same as the budget request; and $31,103,000 for 
program direction to support headquarters and Idaho Field 
Office personnel.

                     OFFICE OF HEARINGS AND APPEALS

    The Committee recommendation includes $4,353,000 for the 
Office of Hearings and Appeals, the same as the budget request.
    The Office of Hearings and Appeals conducts all of the 
Department's adjudicative processes and provides various 
administrative remedies as may be required.

                     Defense Nuclear Waste Disposal

Appropriations, 2005....................................    $229,152,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................     351,447,000
House allowance.........................................     351,447,000
Committee recommendation................................     277,000,000

    The Committee recommends $277,000,000 for defense nuclear 
waste disposal.
    This account provides the Federal Government's fiscal year 
2006 contribution to the nuclear waste repository program to 
support nuclear waste repository activities attributed to 
atomic energy defense activities.
    The Committee understands that the Department formally 
approved in 1995 the right of the Affected Units of Local 
Government to retain interest earned on unexpended balances in 
their oversight accounts. The Committee affirms that this 
policy reflects the intent of Congress and should be maintained 
by the Department.

                    Power Marketing Administrations

    Public Law 95-91 transferred to the Department of Energy 
the power marketing functions under section 5 of the Flood 
Control Act of 1944 and all other functions of the Department 
of the Interior with respect to the Bonneville Power 
Administration, Southeastern Power Administration, Southwestern 
Power Administration, and the power marketing functions of the 
Bureau of Reclamation, now included in the Western Area Power 
Administration.
    All Power Marketing Administrations except Bonneville are 
funded annually with appropriations, and related receipts are 
deposited in the Treasury. Bonneville operations are self-
financed under authority of Public Law 93-454, the Federal 
Columbia River Transmission System Act of 1974, which 
authorizes Bonneville to use its revenues to finance operating 
costs, maintenance and capital construction, and sell bonds to 
the Treasury if necessary to finance any remaining capital 
program requirements.

                  BONNEVILLE POWER ADMINISTRATION FUND

    The Bonneville Power Administration [BPA] is the Federal 
electric power marketing agency in the Pacific Northwest, a 
300,000 square-mile service area that encompasses Oregon, 
Washington, Idaho, western Montana, and small portions of 
adjacent States in the Columbia River basin. BPA markets 
hydroelectric power from 21 multipurpose water resource 
projects of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and 10 projects of 
the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, plus some energy from non-
Federal generating projects in the region. These generating 
resources and BPA's transmission system are operated as an 
integrated power system with operating and financial results 
combined and reported as the Federal Columbia River Power 
System [FCRPS]. BPA is the largest power wholesaler in the 
Northwest and provides about 45 percent of the region's 
electric energy supply and about three-fourths of the region's 
electric power transmission capacity.
    BPA finances its operations on the basis of the self-
financing authority provided by Federal Columbia River 
Transmission System Act of 1974 (Transmission Act) (Public Law 
93-454) and the borrowing authority provided by the Pacific 
Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act (Pacific 
Northwest Power Act) (Public Law 96-501) for energy 
conservation, renewable energy resources and capital fish 
facilities. Authority to borrow is available to the BPA on a 
permanent, indefinite basis.
    The Committee is concerned about the increasing cost of 
salmon recovery efforts in the Columbia River Basin, and about 
the potential adverse impact of those increased costs on 
customers of the Bonneville Power Administration. The Committee 
also is concerned about the quality and efficiency of some of 
the fish data collection efforts and analyses being performed. 
As a result, during fiscal year 2006, the Bonneville Power 
Administration may make no new obligations from the Bonneville 
Power Administration Fund in support of the Fish Passage 
Center. The Committee understands that there are universities 
in the Pacific Northwest that already collect fish data for the 
region and are well-positioned to take on the responsibilities 
now being performed by the Fish Passage Center, and that the 
universities can carry out those responsibilities at a savings 
to the region's ratepayers that fund these programs.

      OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, SOUTHEASTERN POWER ADMINISTRATION

Appropriations, 2005....................................      $5,158,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................................

Committee recommendation................................       5,600,000

    The Southeastern Power Administration markets hydroelectric 
power produced at Corps of Engineers projects in 11 
Southeastern States. Southeastern does not own or operate any 
transmission facilities and carries out its marketing program 
by utilizing the existing transmission systems of the power 
utilities in the area. This is accomplished through 
transmission arrangements between Southeastern and each of the 
area utilities with transmission lines connected to the 
projects. The utility agrees to deliver specified amounts of 
Federal power to customers of the Government, and Southeastern 
agrees to compensate the utility for the wheeling service 
performed.
    The Committee recommendation includes $32,713,000 for 
purchase power and wheeling activities.

      OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, SOUTHWESTERN POWER ADMINISTRATION

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $29,117,000

Committee recommendation................................      30,166,000

    The Southwestern Power Administration is the marketing 
agent for the power generated at Corps of Engineers' 
hydroelectric plants in the six-State area of Kansas, Oklahoma, 
Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana with a total installed 
capacity of 2,158 megawatts. It operates and maintains some 
1,380 miles of transmission lines, 24 generating projects, and 
24 substations, and sells its power at wholesale primarily to 
publicly and cooperatively owned electric distribution 
utilities.
    The Committee recommendation includes $3,000,000 for

marketing electric power generated by the Bureau of 
Reclamation, the Corps of Engineers, and the International 
Boundary and Water Commission which operate hydropower 
generating plants in 15 Central and Western States encompassing 
a 1.3-million-square-mile geographic area. Western is also 
responsible for the operation and maintenance of almost 17,000 
miles of high-voltage transmission lines with more than 260 
substations.
    Utah Mitigation and Conservation Fund.--This fund is 
dedicated primarily for environmental mitigation expenditures 
covering fish and wildlife, and recreation resources impacted 
by the Central Utah Project and the Colorado River Storage 
Project in the State of Utah. For fiscal year 2004, the 
President's Budget proposes to transfer the authorities and 
future contributions for the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and 
Conservation Account from the Secretary of Energy, Western Area 
Power Administration, to the Secretary of the Interior, Bureau 
of Reclamation.
    The Committee recommendation includes $279,500,000 for 
purchase power and wheeling activities, and provides 
$53,957,000 for construction and rehabilitation as requested.

           FALCON AND AMISTAD OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE FUND

    The Committee recommendation is $2,692,000, the same as the 
budget request.
    Creation of the Falcon and Amistad Operating and 
Maintenance Fund was directed by the Foreign Relations 
Authorization Act, fiscal years 1994-95 (Public Law 103-236). 
This legislation also directed that the fund be administered by 
the Administrator of the Western Area Power Administration for 
use by the Commissioner of the United States Section of the 
International Boundary and Water Commission to defray 
operation, maintenance, and emergency costs for the 
hydroelectric facilities at the Falcon and Amistad Dams in 
Texas.
    The Committee understands that WAPA has included $6,700,000 
in its request to be transferred to the Utah Reclamation 
Mitigation and Conservation Fund. The Committee expects WAPA to 
continue budgeting for and transferring these funds to the fund 
as required by section 214 of Public Law 108-137.

                     TITLE IV--INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

                    Appalachian Regional Commission

Appropriations, 2005....................................     $65,472,000
Budget estimate, 2006...................................      65,472,000
House allowance.........................................      38,500,000
Committee recommendation................................      65,482,000

    The Committee recommendation for the Appalachian Regional 
Commission totals $65,482,000.
    The Appalachian Regional Commission [ARC] is a regional 
economic development agency established in 1965. It is composed 
of the Governors of the 13 Appalachian States and a Federal 
cochairman who is appointed by the President.
    Consistent with the administration's budget request, the 
Committee recommendation does not include funding for ARC 
highways. Funding for ARC development highways is provided 
through the Highway Trust Fund in fiscal years 1999 through 
2004 consistent with provision contained in the Intermodal 
Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (Public Law 102-240).
    The Committee recognizes the importance of trade and 
investment opportunities to the Appalachian region, and is 
encouraged by the findings of a preliminary trade report 
determining that Appalachian firms might find significant trade 
and investment opportunities, particularly in the energy, high 
technology, and transportation sectors, in the Republic of 
Turkey and the surrounding region. In this regard, the 
Committee supports the Appalachian-Turkish Trade Project 
[ATTP], a project to promote opportunities to expand trade, 
encourage business interests, stimulate foreign studies, and to 
build a lasting and mutually meaningful relationship between 
the Appalachian States and the Republic of Turkey, as well as 
the neighboring regions, such as Greece. The Committee commends 
the ARC for its leadership role in helping to implement the 
mission of the ATTP. The Committee expects the ARC to continue 
to be a prominent ATTP sponsor.

    The Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board was created by 
the Fiscal Year 1989 National Defense Authorization Act (Public 
Law 100-180). The Board, composed of five members appointed by 
the President, provides advice and recommendations to the 
Secretary of Energy regarding public health and safety issues 
at the Department's defense nuclear facilities. The Board is 
also responsible for investigating any event or practice at a 
defense nuclear facility which has or may adversely affect 
public health and safety. The Board is responsible for 
reviewing and evaluating the content and implementation of the 
standards relating to the design, construction, operation, and

    Fee Recovery.--The Committee recommendation includes bill 
language providing for a 1 year extension of the authority to 
continue the fee recovery percentage used in fiscal year 2005. 
This language requires the NRC to recover 90 percent of its 
budget authority, less the appropriation derived from the 
Nuclear Waste fund and the amount necessary to implement 
Section 3116 of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (Public Law 108-375), by 
assessing license and annual fees.
    New Reactor Licensing.--The Committee recommends 
$20,000,000 to support the preparatory activities and pre-
application consultations for expected combined license 
applications beginning fiscal year 2008. The investment over 2 
years includes accelerating efforts update NRC's regulatory 
infrastructure, training and preparing new technical staff and 
putting into place the infrastructure for additional NRC staff. 
The Committee urges the NRC to utilize these resources in a 
manner to ensure the effective and timely consideration of new 
combined license applications. The Committee expects three to 
five applications to be submitted in the next 2 years.
    Security and Personnel.--The Committee recommends an 
additional $21,000,000 to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to 
be used to conduct site-specific assessments of spent fuel 
pools at each of the nuclear reactor sites consistent with the 
recommendations of the National Academy of Sciences study. The 
Committee expects the NRC to provide written updates as to its 
findings and any changes to the current regulations as a result 
of the assessments. The Committee directs the NRC to allocate 
$4,000,000 to supporting the establishment of Department of 
Homeland Security's Domestic Nuclear Detection Office and to 
use $5,600,000 to meet the salary and benefits requirements 
consistent with the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005 
(Public Law 108-447).
    The Committee recommendation for the NRC is $734,376,000. 
This amount is offset by estimated revenues of $598,643,000 
resulting in a net appropriation of $136,564,000.

    This appropriation provides for the Office of Inspector 
General of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The Committee 
recommends an appropriation of $7,485,000 for fiscal year 2006.

Committee recommendation................................       3,608,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $3,608,000 for 
the Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board. The Nuclear Waste 
Policy Amendments Act of 1987 (Public Law 100-203) directed the 
Board to evaluate the technical and scientific validity of the 
activities of the Department of Energy's nuclear waste disposal 
program. The Board must report its findings not less than two 
times a year to the Congress and the Secretary of Energy.

       Tennessee Valley Authority Office of the Inspector General

Appropriations, 2004....................................................
Budget estimate, 2005...................................      $9,000,000
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................................

    The Office of the Inspector General, for fiscal year 2006, 
proposes to appropriate funds for TVA's IG out of TVA's 
revenues beginning in 2006. The Committee has not included the 
administration's proposal to establish a congressionally-funded 
Office of the Inspector General to over the Tennessee Valley 
Authority. The Committee believes the current relationship 
between the Inspector General and the TVA Board is working well 
and sees no reason to change that relationship.

                      TITLE V--GENERAL PROVISIONS

    The following list of general provisions are recommended by 
the Committee. The recommendation includes several provisions 
which have been included in previous Energy and Water 
Development Appropriations Acts:

unexpended balances of appropriations to another Federal 
department, agency or instrumentality of the U.S. Government.
