                in costs required to correct deficiencies that 
                may affect the safety of the vessel and 
                personnel or otherwise preclude the vessel from

SEC. 255. NEXT GENERATION BOMBER AIRCRAFT.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) Long-range strike is a critical mission in 
        which the United States needs to retain a credible and 
        dominant capability.
            (2) Long range, penetrating strike systems 
        provide--
                    (A) a hedge against being unable to obtain 
                access to forward bases for political reasons;
                    (B) a capacity to respond quickly to 
                contingencies;
                    (C) the ability to base outside the reach 
                of emerging adversary anti-access and area-
                denial capabilities; and
                    (D) the ability to impose disproportionate 
                defensive costs on prospective adversaries of 
                the United States.
            (3) The 2006 quadrennial defense review found that 
        there was a requirement for a next generation bomber 
        aircraft and directed the United States Air Force to 
        ``develop a new land-based, penetrating long range 
        strike capability to be fielded by 2018''.
            (4) On April 6, 2009, Secretary of Defense Robert 
        Gates announced that the United States ``will not 
        pursue a development program for a follow-on Air Force 
        bomber until we have a better understanding of the 
        need, the requirement and the technology''.
            (5) On May 7, 2009, President Barack Obama 
        announced the termination of the next generation bomber 
        aircraft program in the document of the Office of 
        Management and Budget entitled ``Terminations, 
        Reductions, and Savings'', stating that ``there is no 
        urgent need to begin an expensive development program 
        for a new bomber'' and that ``the future bomber fleet 
        may not be affordable over the next six years''.
            (6) The United States will need a new long-range 
        strike capability because the conflicts of the future 
        will likely feature heavily defended airspace, due in 
        large part to the proliferation of relatively 
        inexpensive, but sophisticated and deadly, air defense 
        systems.
            (7) General Michael Maples, the Director of the 
        Defense Intelligence Agency, noted during a March 10, 
        2009, hearing of the Committee on Armed Services of the 
        Senate on worldwide threats that ``Russia, quite 
        frankly, is the developer of most of those [advanced 
        air defense] systems and is exporting those systems 
        both to China and to other countries in the world''.
            (8) The Final Report of the Congressional 
        Commission on the Strategic Posture of the United 
        States, submitted to Congress on May 6, 2009, states 
        that ``[t]he bomber force is valuable particularly for 
        extending deterrence in time of crisis, as their 
        deployment is visible and signals U.S. commitment. 
        Bombers also impose a significant cost burden on 
        potential adversaries in terms of the need to invest in 
        advanced air defenses''.
            (9) The commanders of the United States Pacific 
        Command, the United States Strategic Command, and the 
        United States Joint Forces Command have each testified 
        before the Committee on Armed Services of the Senate in 
        support of the capability that the next generation 
        bomber aircraft would provide.
            (10) On June 17, 2009, General James Cartwright, 
        Vice-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and chair of 
        the Joint Requirements Oversight Council, stated during 
        a hearing before the Committee on Armed Services of the 
        Senate that ``the nation needs a new bomber''.
            (11) Nearly half of the United States bomber 
        aircraft inventory (47 percent) pre-dates the Cuban 
        Missile Crisis.
            (12) The only air-breathing strike platforms the 
        United States possesses today with reach and 
        survivability to have a chance of successfully 
        executing missions more than 1,000 nautical miles into 
        enemy territory from the last air-to-air refueling are 
        16 combat ready B-2 bomber aircraft.
            (13) The B-2 bomber aircraft was designed in the 
        1980s and achieved initial operational capability over 
        a decade ago.
            (14) The crash of an operational B-2 bomber 
        aircraft during takeoff at Guam in early 2008 indicates 
        that attrition can and does occur even in peacetime.
            (15) The primary mission requirement of the next 
        generation bomber aircraft is the ability to strike 
        targets anywhere on the globe with whatever weapons the 
        contingency requires.
            (16) The requisite aerodynamic, structural, and 
        low-observable technologies to develop the next 
        generation bomber aircraft already exist in fifth-
        generation fighter aircraft.
    (b) Policy on Continued Development of Next Generation 
Bomber Aircraft in Fiscal Year 2010.--It is the policy of the 
United States to support a development program for next 
generation bomber aircraft technologies.

        production, procurement, and fielding of existing 
        service-specific ground combat and camouflage utility 
        uniforms.
            (4) Challenges and risks associated with fielding 
        members of the Armed Forces into combat theaters in 
        unique or service-specific ground combat or camouflage 
        utility uniforms, including the tactical risk to the 
        individuals serving in individual augmentee, in-lieu of 
        force, or joint duty assignments of use of different 
        ground combat uniforms in a combat environment.

the report required under subsection (c). The joint criteria 
shall take into account the findings and recommendations of 
such report and ensure that new technologies, advanced 
materials, and other advances in ground combat uniform design 
may be shared between the military services and are not 
precluded from being adapted for use by any military service 
due to military service-unique proprietary arrangements.

                military families in securing quality 
                elementary and secondary education for their 
                children when the public elementary and 
                secondary schools attended by their children 
                are identified as being in need of improvement.
                    (B) The extent to which perceptions of 
                differing degrees of quality in public 
                elementary and secondary schools in different 
                regions of the United States affect plans of 
                military families to relocate, including 
                relocation pursuant to a permanent change of 
                duty station.

                families seek educational opportunities for 
                their children other than those available 
                through local public elementary and secondary 
                schools.
                    (D) The current level of student 
                achievement in public elementary and secondary 
                schools in school districts which have a high 
                percentage of students who are children of 
                military families.
                    (E) The educational needs of children of 
                military families who are required by location 
                to attend public elementary and secondary 
                schools identified as being in need of 
                improvement.
                    (F) The value and impact of other 
                alternative educational programs for military 
                families.
                    (G) The extent to which the options 
                referred to in paragraph (2) would provide a 
                meaningful option for education for military 
                children when the public elementary and 
                secondary schools attended by such children are 
                determined to be in need of improvement.
                    (H) The extent to which the options 
                referred to in paragraph (2) would improve the 
                quality of education available for students 
                with special needs, including students with 
                learning disabilities and gifted students.
                    (I) Such other matters as the Secretary of 
                Defense and Secretary of Education consider 
                appropriate for purposes of the study.

of Defense shall submit to the Committee on Armed Services of

                identification card to a permanently 
                incapacitated dependent.
                    (B) The administrative and other burdens 
                the quadrennial recertification imposes on the 
                affected sponsor and dependents, especially 
                after the sponsor becomes ill, incapacitated, 
                or deceased.
                    (C) The extent to which the quadrennial 
                recertification undermines the utility of 
                issuing a permanent identification card.
                    (D) The extent of the consequences entailed 
                in eliminating the requirement for quadrennial 
                recertification.
            (2) Specific recommendations for the following:
                    (A) Improving the efficiency of the

                on the sponsors of such dependents.

SEC. 662. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON AIRFARES FOR MEMBERS OF THE ARMED 
                    FORCES.

    It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) all United States commercial air carriers 
        should seek to lend their support with flexible, 
        generous policies applicable to members of the Armed 
        Forces who are traveling on leave or liberty at their 
        own expense; and
            (2) each United States air carrier, for all members 
        of the Armed Forces who have been granted leave or 
        liberty and who are traveling by air at their own 
        expense, should--
                    (A) seek to provide reduced air fares that 
                are comparable to the lowest airfare for 
                ticketed flights and that eliminate to the 
                maximum extent possible advance purchase 
                requirements;
                    (B) seek to eliminate change fees or 
                charges and any penalties;
                    (C) seek to eliminate or reduce baggage and 
                excess weight fees;
                    (D) offer flexible terms that allow members 
                to purchase, modify, or cancel tickets without 
                time restrictions, and to waive fees (including 
                baggage fees), ancillary costs, or penalties; 
                and
                    (E) seek to take proactive measures to 
                ensure that all airline employees, particularly 
                those who issue tickets and respond to members 
                of the Armed Forces and their family members, 
                are trained in the policies of the airline 
                aimed at benefitting members of the Armed 
                Forces who are on leave.

SEC. 663. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON ESTABLISHMENT OF FLEXIBLE SPENDING 
                    ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE UNIFORMED SERVICES.

    (a) In General.--It is the sense of Congress that the 
Secretary of Defense, with respect to members of the Army, 
Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force, the Secretary of Homeland 
Security, with respect to members of the Coast Guard, the 
Secretary of Health and Human Services, with respect to 
commissioned officers of the Public Health Service, and the 
Secretary of Commerce, with respect to commissioned officers of 
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, should 
establish procedures to implement flexible spending 
arrangements with respect to basic pay and compensation for 
health care and dependent care on a pre-tax basis in accordance 
with regulations prescribed under sections 106(c) and 125 of 
the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
    (b) Considerations.--It is the sense of Congress that, in 
establishing the procedures described by subsection (a), the 
Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the 
Secretary of Health and Human Services, and the Secretary of 
Commerce should consider life events of members of the 
uniformed services that are unique to them as members of the 
uniformed services, including changes relating to permanent 
changes of duty station and deployments to overseas contingency 
operations.

SEC. 664. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING SUPPORT FOR COMPENSATION, 
                    RETIREMENT, AND OTHER MILITARY PERSONNEL PROGRAMS.

    It is the sense of Congress that members of the Armed 
Forces and their families and survivors and military retirees 
deserve ongoing recognition and support for their service and 
sacrifices on behalf of the United States, and Congress will 
continue to be vigilant in identifying appropriate direct 
spending offsets that can be used to address shortcomings
