                            (iv) if a bill making 
                        appropriations for the Department of 
                        the Interior and the Forest Service for 
                        the following fiscal year has not been 
                        enacted by September 1, the first week

                    (D) Requirements.--An estimate of 
                anticipated wildfire suppression costs shall be 
                developed using the best available--
                            (i) climate, weather, and other 
                        relevant data; and
                            (ii) models and other analytic 
                        tools.
    (i) Termination of Authority.--The authority of the 
Secretary concerned to use the FLAME Fund established for that 
Secretary shall terminate at the end of the third fiscal year 
in which no appropriations to, or withdrawals from, that FLAME 
Fund have been made for a period of three consecutive fiscal 
years. Upon termination of such authority, any amounts 
remaining in the affected FLAME Fund shall be transferred to, 
and made a part of, the Wildland Fire Management appropriation 
account of the Secretary concerned for wildland suppression 
activities.

SEC. 503. COHESIVE WILDFIRE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY

    (a) Strategy Required.--Not later than one year after the

   DIVISION A--DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR, ENVIRONMENT, AND RELATED 
                   AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2010

                        REPROGRAMMING GUIDELINES

      The following are the procedures governing reprogramming 
actions for programs and activities funded in the Department of 
the Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations 
Act.
      Definitions.--``Reprogramming,'' as defined in these 
procedures, includes the reallocation of funds from one budget 
activity, budget line-item or program area, to another within 
any appropriation funded in this Act. In cases where either the 
House or Senate Committee report displays an allocation of an 
appropriation below those levels, that more detailed level 
shall be the basis for reprogramming.
      For construction, land acquisition and forest legacy 
accounts, a reprogramming constitutes the reallocation of 
funds, including unobligated balances, from one construction, 
land acquisition, or forest legacy project to another such 
project. The construction, land acquisition and forest legacy 
projects and amounts identified in the ``Incorporation of 
Congressionally Requested Projects'' table at the end of this 
statement of managers may be reprogrammed, but only pursuant to 
Section 444 of this Act.
      A reprogramming shall also consist of any significant 
departure from the program described in the agency's budget 
justifications. This includes proposed reorganizations, 
especially those of significant national or regional 
importance, even without a change in funding. Any change to the 
organization table presented in the budget justification shall 
be subject to this requirement.
      General Guidelines for Reprogramming.--
      (a) A reprogramming should be made only when an 
unforeseen situation arises; and then only if postponement of 
the project or the activity until the next appropriation year 
would result in actual loss or damage.
      (b) Any project or activity, which may be deferred 
through reprogramming, shall not later be accomplished by means 
of further reprogramming; but, instead, funds should again be 
sought for the deferred project or activity through the regular 
appropriations process.
      (c) Except under the most urgent situations, 
reprogramming should not be employed to initiate new programs 
or increase allocations specifically denied or limited by 
Congress, or to decrease allocations specifically increased by 
the Congress.
      (d) Reprogramming proposals submitted to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations for approval shall be 
considered approved 30 calendar days after receipt if the 
Committees have posed no objection. However, agencies will be 
expected to extend the approval deadline if specifically 
requested by either Committee.
      Criteria and Exceptions.--A reprogramming must be 
submitted to the Committees in writing prior to implementation 
if it exceeds $1,000,000 annually or results in an increase or 
decrease of more than 10 percent annually in affected programs, 
with the following exceptions:
      (a) With regard to the Tribal priority allocations of the 
Bureau of Indian Affairs, there is no restriction on 
reprogrammings among these programs. However, the Bureau shall 
report on all reprogrammings made during a given fiscal year no 
later than 60 days after the end of the fiscal year.
      (b) With regard to the Environmental Protection Agency, 
State and Tribal Assistance Grants account, the Committee does 
not require reprogramming requests associated with States and 
Tribes Partnership Grants.
      Assessments.--``Assessment'' as defined in these 
procedures shall refer to any charges, reserves, or holdbacks 
applied to a budget activity or budget line item for costs 
associated with general agency administrative costs, overhead 
costs, working capital expenses, or contingencies.
      (a) No assessment shall be levied against any program, 
budget activity, subactivity, budget line item, or project 
funded by the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies 
Appropriations Act unless such assessment and the basis 
therefore are presented to the Committees on Appropriations in 
the budget justifications and are subsequently approved by the 
Committees. The explanation for any assessment in the budget 
justification shall show the amount of the assessment, the 
activities assessed, and the purpose of the funds.
      (b) Proposed changes to estimated assessments, as such 
estimates were presented in annual budget justifications, shall 
be submitted through the reprogramming process and shall be 
subject to the same dollar and reporting criteria as any other 
reprogramming.
      (c) The Committees direct that each agency or bureau 
which utilizes assessments shall submit an annual report to the 
Committees which provides details on the use of all funds 
assessed from any other budget activity, line item, 
subactivity, or project.
      (d) In no case shall contingency funds or assessments be 
used to finance projects and activities disapproved or limited 
by Congress, or to finance programs or activities that could be 
foreseen and included in the normal budget review process.
      Quarterly Reports.--All reprogrammings between budget 
activities, budget line-items, program areas or the more 
detailed activity levels shown in the Statement of the 
Managers, including those below the monetary thresholds 
established above, shall be reported to the Committees within 
60 days of the end of each quarter and shall include cumulative 
totals for each budget activity, budget line item, or 
construction, land acquisition, or forest legacy project.
      Land Acquisitions, Easements, and Forest Legacy.--Lands 
shall not be acquired for more than the approved appraised 
value (as addressed in section 301(3) of Public Law 91-646), 
unless such acquisitions are submitted to the Committees on 
Appropriations for approval in compliance with these 
procedures.
      Land Exchanges.--Land exchanges, wherein the estimated 
value of the Federal lands to be exchanged is greater than 
$1,000,000, shall not be consummated until the Committees have 
had a 30-day period in which to examine the proposed exchange. 
In addition, the Committee shall be provided advance 
notification of exchanges valued between $500,000 and 
$1,000,000.
      Budget Structure.--The budget activity or line item 
structure for any agency appropriation account shall not be 
altered without advance approval of the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations.
      Report Language.--Any limitation or directive contained 
in either the House or Senate report which is not contradicted 
by the other report nor specifically denied in the conference 
report shall be considered as having been approved by both 
Houses of Congress.

                   RENEWABLE ENERGY AND PUBLIC LANDS

      The conferees understand that renewable energy will 
become a more significant source of power for the Nation and 
that the Department of the Interior and the Forest Service will 
play a prominent role in its development. However, the 
conferees are concerned about the impacts these projects may 
have on the landscape and water resources, particularly those 
for wind and solar power. Proposed solar projects can each 
cover several square miles and the newest wind turbines are 
over 500 feet tall. Appropriate siting of these projects and 
cost-appropriate size limitations are critical to ensuring that 
the pristine landscapes, limited water resources, and 
magnificent views of the country's public lands and coastlines 
are protected.
      Accordingly, within 180 days of enactment, the conferees 
direct the Department of the Interior to submit a report in 
consultation with the Forest Service on the criteria used for 
siting renewable energy projects, including the extent to which 
protection of scenic landscapes, ridgetops, water resources, 
habitat including that for endangered species, and shorelines 
will be considered. The report should also provide a detailed 
strategic plan on how the Department and the Forest Service 
will coordinate the development of such projects, particularly 
in areas where there is mixed ownership or management by the 
Department of the Interior, Forest Service, Department of 
Defense, and non-Federal landowners. Additionally, the report 
should identify specifically what areas of the public lands and 
the Outer Continental Shelf will be considered for projects 
based on: (1) their potential for renewable energy generation; 
(2) what additional transmission lines will be necessary to 
connect these new sources of power to the energy grid; (3) 
where these transmission lines will be placed; (4) the 
methodology to be used to limit the size of solar troughs and 
photovoltaic facilities, and (5) the impact on water resources.
      The report should also include an analysis of the useful 
life of renewable energy sites and provide an explanation of 
how the infrastructure will be removed from the public lands 
when it is no longer functional. The conferees believe that 
some mechanism, such as a bond put forth by the permittees, 
should be utilized by the Department and the Forest Service so 
that the government does not have to pay for the removal of 
these large facilities after they are no longer viable.
      The Department of the Interior and Forest Service should 
consult with the Congress on a regular basis as they proceed 
with the development of policies and the preparation of 
environmental documents and permitting of renewable energy 
projects.
      The conferees believe that renewable energy developers 
should have less difficulty permitting their projects on 
disturbed private lands than on pristine public lands, in order 
to facilitate greater species protection and stewardship of 
public resources and public lands. The conferees recommend that 
the Secretary evaluate whether a cooperative agreement with 
States under Section 6 of the Endangered Species Act, the 
establishment of a Section 4(d) rule under the same Act, or the 
creation of a template ``general habitat conservation plan'' 
would improve the permitting process for solar projects on 
private lands in the California desert.

              GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE SCIENCE AND ADAPTATION

      The conference agreement includes a major investment in 
science and management related to impacts of global warming. 
Overall, the bill provides over $400,000,000, including funds 
for the Department of the Interior climate change initiative 
and substantial investments at the Environmental Protection 
Agency, Forest Service, and Smithsonian Institution. The 
conference agreement supports direction provided by both the 
House and the Senate regarding this issue. This includes the 
need for a national strategy for dealing with climate change, 
as well as continued development of the National Climate Change 
and Wildlife Science Center at the U.S. Geological Survey as a 
model for further implementation of an integrated approach to 
climate change science and adaptation by the Interior 
Department bureaus. The conference agreement also includes a 
provision in Section 426 requiring a detailed report on the 
Administration's obligations, expenditures and activities 
regarding climate change programs. The conferees expect that 
the next budget request will include cross-cutting tables for 
all Federal climate change related activities including climate 
change observation, science, and management implementation of 
adaptation and mitigation.
      The conferees note the previous direction provided within 
the fiscal year 2009 appropriations act directing the Secretary 
of the Interior to develop a national strategy to assist fish, 
wildlife, plants, and associated ecological processes in 
becoming more resilient, adapting to, and surviving the impacts 
of climate change. This conference agreement provides ample 
funds to accomplish substantial scientific and management 
activities, but this needs to be done within the context of an 
integrated approach among the various Federal departments, 
States, Tribes and other institutions. The conferees urge the 
Council on Environmental Quality, working closely with the 
Department of the Interior as the lead department, to develop a 
national, government-wide strategy to address climate impacts 
on fish, wildlife, plants, and associated ecological processes. 
It should provide that there is integration, coordination, and 
public accountability to ensure efficiency and avoid 
duplication. The conferees expect to receive a timeline and a 
blueprint for the completion of such a national strategic 
planning effort, as well as regular updates as progress is 
made.
      The conferees are encouraged by aspects of the recent 
Interior Department Secretarial Order addressing the impacts of 
climate change on America's water, land and other natural and 
cultural resources, as well as the draft Fish and Wildlife 
Service national strategy for climate change adaptation, 
mitigation and engagement. However, it is essential that 
further departmental implementation of the Secretary's order on 
climate change build upon the successful National Climate 
Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC) and its approach to 
provide regional science application centers focused on fauna, 
flora and ecological processes as previously described in 
Congressional direction and the budget request. The future 
identity and activities of the NCCWSC must be distinct and 
accountable, while also working with other departmental and 
national efforts on climate change science and applications.

                            LAND ACQUISITION

      The conferees are concerned that lands acquired with 
funds appropriated via the Land and Water Conservation Fund are 
being, or have been, made available for uses inconsistent with 
the recreation, conservation or public access for which they 
were purchased. Accordingly, the conferees direct the Secretary 
of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture to notify the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations before any land 
use or management decision is made that will change the use of 
the land from conservation or recreational use. Additionally, 
the conferees encourage the Secretaries of Agriculture and 
Interior to include land acquisition projects that provide 
increased access to our Federally-owned public lands to provide 
opportunities for the public to recreate and enjoy our nation's 
natural resources.
      The conferees direct the agencies to use inholdings 
funding to acquire high priority lands that are threatened by 
development and are partially or entirely bordered by land 
currently owned by the Federal government. The conferees have 
been advised that each of the land management agencies has 
unique inholding acquisition policies and practices that have 
not been coordinated with each of the other agencies. It is the 
intention of the conferees that there be a single set of 
policies for implementing Land and Water Conservation Fund 
acquisitions to the maximum extent possible. Therefore, the 
Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture are directed to 
jointly examine the policies and practices of each land 
management agency and submit a report on findings and 
recommendations to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations by June 30, 2010.
      The conferees continue to be concerned about the delays 
in obtaining adequate appraisals for acquisition of Federal 
lands. Consistent with the language included in the House 
report, the conferees direct the Department of the Interior to 
revisit the Department-wide appraisal services consolidation 
and immediately address the undue delays in obtaining 
appraisals for Federal land acquisition projects.

                  TITLE I--DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

                       Bureau of Land Management

                   MANAGEMENT OF LANDS AND RESOURCES

                    (INCLUDING RESCISSION OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $958,571,000 for 
Management of Lands and Resources instead of $950,496,000 as 
proposed by the House and $965,721,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by activity for this 
account is included in the table at the end of the statement. 
In addition to the directions provided in the House and Senate 
committee reports, the conference agreement also provides the 
following directions:
      Range Management.--Within the funds provided for range 
management, the agreement designates $1,000,000 to help reduce 
the backlog in grazing permits. The conferees recognize that 
the increasing numbers of expiring permits, increased costs for 
processing, and litigation, has resulted in a significant 
backlog and workload in processing permits. This funding should 
be targeted to those areas where litigation is causing 
significant delays.
      Cultural Resources Management.--The conference agreement 
includes $500,000 above the request for cultural resource 
activities in wilderness lands as authorized by the Omnibus 
Public Lands Act of 2009. The Senate had recommended $1,000,000 
for this activity.
      Wild Horse and Burro Management.--The conference 
agreement provides $63,986,000 for wild horse and burro 
management, an increase of $23,373,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 level. This is a 58 percent increase, by far the largest 
increase ever provided for this program. The conference 
agreement requires the Bureau to follow the Senate direction 
for this program. The conferees note that the bill language 
proposed by the Senate within administrative provisions 
provides that funds shall not be available for the destruction 
of healthy, unadopted, wild horses and burros in the care of 
the BLM or its contractors, or for the sale of wild horses and 
burros that results in their destruction for processing into 
commercial products.
      Wildlife Management.--Within the funds provided for 
wildlife management, the conference agreement includes 
increases of $500,000 each above the request for the general 
wildlife and plant conservation programs as was proposed by the 
House.
      Threatened and Endangered Species Management.--The 
conference agreement includes the Senate-proposed additions of 
$200,000 for the general program and $300,000 for redband trout 
and salmon habitat assessment and restoration in Nevada.
      Realty and Ownership Management.--The conference 
agreement includes the Senate proposed additions of $100,000 
for the general cadastral survey program and $300,000 for the 
Utah Rural Cadastral Data Program.
      The conferees strongly encourage the BLM to apply the 
necessary resources to complete landscape scale assessments by 
the end of fiscal year 2010 on the Mojave Basin and Range, 
Central Basin and Range, Sonoran Desert, and the Colorado 
Plateau. These assessments should, at a minimum, include 
spatial analyses of priority conservation areas, renewable 
energy potential, invasive species, and wildfires.
      Resource Protection and Maintenance.--The conference 
agreement includes a $500,000 increase for law enforcement and 
the Senate proposed addition of $1,000,000 for travel and 
transportation plans for lands authorized by the Omnibus Public 
Lands Act of 2009.
      National Monuments and Conservation Areas.--The 
conference agreement includes a $2,500,000 general program 
increase above the request for national monuments and 
conservation area management.
      Bill Language.--The conference agreement includes a 
$1,000,000 rescission of funds provided in fiscal year 2009 for 
oil shale core samples; this project was accomplished from 
other funding sources. A technical change is included to 
correct language regarding mining claim maintenance fees and 
location fees.

                              CONSTRUCTION

      The conference agreement includes the funds requested for 
Construction, plus additions recommended by the Senate of 
$36,000 for architectural and engineering services and 
$2,000,000 for the California National Historic Trail visitor 
center interpretative displays in Nevada. The funding includes:

administrative and other costs.

                       MISCELLANEOUS TRUST FUNDS

      The conference agreement includes an indefinite 
appropriation estimated to be $20,130,000 for Miscellaneous 
Trust Funds as requested and proposed by both the House and the 
Senate.

                       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS

      The conference agreement includes the Administrative 
Provisions as requested, and includes two additional items 
proposed by the Senate. The first provides authority for the 
BLM to carry out operations by direct expenditure, contracts, 
grants, cooperative agreements and reimbursable agreements with 
public and private entities. The second provides that 
appropriations shall not be available for destruction of 
healthy, unadopted, wild horses and burros in the care of the 
BLM or its contractors or for the sale of wild horses and 
burros that results in their destruction for processing into 
commercial products. The agreement also includes a technical 
correction to a minor amendment made in fiscal year 2009 
regarding mining claim maintenance and location fees.

                United States Fish and Wildlife Service

                          RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

      The conference agreement includes $1,269,406,000 instead 
of $1,248,756,000 as proposed by the House and $1,244,386,000 
as proposed by the Senate. The detailed allocation of funding 
by program area and activity is included in the table at the 
end of the statement. In addition to the directions included in 
the House and Senate Committee reports, the conference 
agreement includes the following directions:
      Ecological Services.--The conference agreement includes 
$311,227,000 instead of $295,127,000 as proposed by the House 
and $305,677,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      Within the funds provided for the listing program there 
is $11,632,000 for critical habitat and $10,471,000 for 
listing. Within the funds for candidate conservation, there is 
$1,000,000 for sage grouse conservation in Idaho and a general 
increase of $1,000,000. There is an increase in the 
consultation program of $2,500,000 for increased monitoring and 
record-keeping pursuant to recommendations by the GAO.
      Within the funds for the recovery program, there is 
$3,000,000 for responding to the State of the Birds report, 
$1,000,000 for the livestock loss demonstration program, 
$1,900,000 for increased research and monitoring on white nose 
syndrome in bats, $350,000 for Lahontan cutthroat trout 
restoration, $1,500,000 for endangered species grants to be 
administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, 
$350,000 for sea eider conservation efforts, $500,000 for 
whooping crane breeding facilities in Louisiana, and an 
increase of $200,000 for additional wolf monitoring in western 
States.
      The conferees support the requested funding for aplomado 
falcon and California condor recovery. The Service is 
encouraged to continue to support these ongoing, successful 
recovery efforts.
      The conferees intend that the funding included for the 
State of the Birds report be used to begin to initiate actions 
in response to the recently published multi-agency report, The 
State of the Birds, United States of America, 2009. This report 
provides a comprehensive overview of the crises and challenges 
confronting birds in every part of the country. The situation 
for native birds in Hawaii is particularly dire. Seventy-one 
known species of Hawaiian birds have gone extinct. Predator 
control and habitat preservation are critical to the survival 
of the 31 species of endangered birds remaining in Hawaii. The 
conferees therefore recommend that a significant portion of 
this funding be used to develop a comprehensive strategy, hire 
staff, and begin on the ground projects to recover endangered 
and threatened bird species in Hawaii.
      The conference agreement includes $1,000,000 for the Wolf 
Livestock Loss Demonstration Project as authorized by the 
Omnibus Public Lands Management Act of 2009. These funds will 
be used to provide grants to States and Indian Tribes to assist 
livestock producers in undertaking proactive, non-lethal 
activities to reduce the risk of livestock loss due to 
predation by wolves, and to compensate livestock producers, as 
appropriate, for livestock losses due to such predation. This 
is a new demonstration program and the conferees encourage the 
agencies to act quickly to implement the program.
      The Service should implement program guidelines that 
establish criteria for the disbursal of funds to ensure that 
the funds are spent efficiently and effectively with a minimum 
potential for waste and abuse. The Service should consult with 
representatives from the relevant agencies and key stakeholders 
to create the guidelines. The guidelines should ensure that 
each participating State/Tribe allocates money evenly between 
compensation and non-lethal activities specified in the Act 
and, in order to work towards reducing depredations overall, 
that only livestock owners who demonstrate reasonable use of 
nonlethal methods will remain eligible for compensation after 
one initial incident of reimbursable depredation.
      The conferees recommend $1,900,000 for research, 
monitoring, and related activities to respond to the massive 
mortality in bats from white nose syndrome (WNS) in the 
northeastern and Appalachian States. This is an increase of 
$1,400,000 over the Senate proposed amount. WNS is spreading 
rapidly and poses threats of extinction to several bat species. 
The Service is spearheading efforts to better understand this 
deadly disease and learn how to limit its spread, working in 
conjunction with the U.S. Geological Survey, National Park 
Service, U.S. Forest Service, State and local partners, 
scientists, caving groups and conservation organizations.
      Within the funds for the partners for fish and wildlife 
program, there is $6,000,000 for climate change projects, 
$1,000,000 for invasive species management in Hawaii, $350,000 
for the Natural Resources Economic Enterprises Program at 
Mississippi State University, $500,000 for milfoil control in 
Maine lakes, and $500,000 for stream bank restoration in 
Georgia.
      Within the funds provided, the conferees have included 
$750,000 for the Secretary of the Interior to contract with the 
National Academy of Sciences to conduct studies in support of 
sustainable water and environmental management of the 
Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta in California. A study shall be 
completed no later than March 15, 2010, addressing questions 
drafted by the Secretary on the subjects of (1) whether the 
science supports the assumptions and conclusions in the 
biological opinions regarding the Bureau of Reclamation 
operations in the Central Valley, and (2) whether lesser 
restrictions on pumping could avoid jeopardy to the species.
      There are program increases of $1,000,000 for the coastal 
program, $250,000 for the national wetlands inventory and 
$500,000 for the environmental contaminants program.
      National Wildlife Refuge System.--The conference 
agreement provides $503,279,000 for the National Wildlife 
Refuge System as proposed by the House, instead of $488,629,000 
as proposed by the Senate.
      Within the funds provided for the refuge system there are 
increases over the request of $16,000,000 for wildlife and 
habitat management, $1,000,000 for the volunteer program, 
$2,000,000 for refuge law enforcement, and $1,000,000 for 
conservation planning. Within the funding provided for refuge 
system maintenance, there is a $2,000,000 increase for annual 
maintenance and a $2,000,000 decrease for deferred maintenance. 
Within the funds provided for wildlife and habitat management, 
the Service is directed to provide $1,200,000 for invasive rat 
eradication on Palmyra Atoll to protect native bird 
populations.
      The conferees remain concerned about the situation on the 
southwest border and encourage the Service to direct a portion 
of the increase for law enforcement to the southwest.
      The conferees are concerned that the Service is not 
dedicating sufficient resources to the management of the new 
marine national monuments and urge the Service to increase 
resources for managing the monuments and partnering with other 
Federal, international, and private entities.
      Migratory Bird Management, Law Enforcement, and 
International Affairs.--The conference agreement provides 
$134,743,000 for migratory bird management, law enforcement and 
international affairs instead of $133,593,000 as proposed by 
the House and $133,573,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      Within the funds provided for migratory birds, law 
enforcement and international programs, there are increases of 
$500,000 for new urban treaties as a part of the Department-
wide youth initiative, $1,000,000 for joint ventures under the 
North American Waterfowl Management Plan, $2,000,000 for law 
enforcement operations, $1,000,000 for the wildlife without 
borders program, and $150,000 for the Caddo Lake Ramsar Center. 
The increase for joint ventures is intended to provide all 
approved joint ventures with sufficient base funding.
      The conferees are aware of the impacts of the chytrid 
disease on amphibian species worldwide. Amphibian species are 
disappearing at over 200 times their historic rate. The 
conferees urge the Service to use a portion of the increase 
provided for the wildlife without borders program to work with 
the international conservation community to establish 
conservation and captive breeding programs as well as to 
support the development and testing of novel methods to combat 
amphibian chytrid to conserve the most imperiled of these 
species.
      Fisheries.--The conference agreement provides 
$148,345,000 for the fisheries program instead of $144,195,000 
as proposed by the House and $143,695,000 as proposed by the 
Senate.
      Within the funds provided for fisheries and aquatic 
resource conservation, there is: $2,150,000 to conduct 
scientific review of the Klamath, North Coast, and Central 
Valley hatchery operations in California; $1,000,000 for mass 
marking fisheries in the Great Lakes; $500,000 general increase 
for fish hatchery operations; $500,000 for native freshwater 
mussel recovery; $1,300,000 to establish a Fisheries Resource 
Office in West Virginia to focus on aquatic species restoration 
and management in the Appalachian Highlands; $2,000,000 to 
control the spread of and eradicate invasive quagga and zebra 
mussels; and $200,000 for sea otter and Steller sea lion 
conservation in Alaska.
      The conference agreement includes $2,000,000 above the 
President's request for the Service to respond to the urgent 
nationwide problem of invasive mussels entering lakes and 
rivers in the U.S. These mussels crowd out native species and 
encrust any hard surface, including municipal water supply 
pipes and boat motors. They are easily spread by watercraft 
from one location to another and are nearly impossible to 
eradicate once established. For example, the infestation of 
quagga mussels in Lake Mead was first found in 2007. The number 
of quagga mussels has grown to 3 trillion since then and is 
likely irreversible. Today, infestation by quagga and zebra 
mussels and Asian clams is threatening the pristine waters of 
Lake Tahoe. The introduction of these aquatic nuisance species 
to the Lake Tahoe region could have devastating effects to the 
regional economy, including effects on recreation, tourism, 
property values, and other infrastructure. Therefore, the 
conferees strongly encourage the Service to devote a 
significant portion of the increase to the study, construction, 
staffing, and other expenses necessary for watercraft 
inspection and decontamination stations to be located away from 
boat and vessel ramps at Lake Tahoe, Echo Lake, and Fallen Leaf 
Lake. The conferees recommend that such inspection and 
decontamination stations be located on each of the seven roads 
leading to the Lake Tahoe region. Further, the conferees 
believe that the Service should increase its coordination with 
local, State and Federal entities, including the U.S. Forest 
Service, to prevent quagga mussels and other aquatic invasive 
species from entering the Lake Tahoe ecosystem.
      Climate Change Adaptive Science.--The conference 
agreement includes $20,000,000 for climate change adaptive 
science, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.
      The conferees have included the requested funding for 
climate change activities. Consistent with language included 
elsewhere in this statement, the Service is directed to 
implement its climate change activities, including the 
landscape conservation cooperatives, within the scope of the 
Service's national strategy for climate change, the Secretary's 
order on climate change, and the National Climate Change and 
Wildlife Science Center in the U.S. Geological Survey. 
Additionally, the Service should fully integrate these 
activities with other Federal agencies, States, Tribes and 
other partners.
      General Administration.--The conference agreement 
provides $152,812,000 for general administration as proposed by 
the Senate instead of $153,562,000 as proposed by the House.
      Within the funds provided for general administration 
there is an increase of $750,000 for necessary maintenance at 
the National Conservation Training Center. Funding for the 
National Fish and Wildlife Foundation is $7,537,000 as proposed 
by the Senate.
      Sale of Surplus Property.--The conference agreement 
includes the proposed reduction of $1,000,000 due to the sale 
of surplus property.

                              CONSTRUCTION

      The conference agreement includes $37,439,000 instead of 
$21,139,000 as proposed by the House and $39,741,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement includes the 
following distribution of funds:

      Bill Language.--The conference agreement includes bill 
language allowing the Service to fund limited administrative 
costs for the Highlands Conservation Act program 
administration.

            Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund

      The conference agreement provides $85,000,000 for the 
Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund instead of 
$100,000,000 as proposed by the House and $85,001,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      The detailed allocation of funding by program area and 
activity is included in the table at the end of the statement.

                     National Wildlife Refuge Fund

      The conference agreement provides $14,500,000 for 
payments to counties authorized by the National Wildlife Refuge 
Fund, as proposed by the Senate, instead of $14,100,000 as 
proposed by the House.

               North American Wetlands Conservation Fund

      The conference agreement provides $47,647,000 for the 
North American Wetlands Conservation Fund instead of 
$52,647,000 as proposed by the House and $45,147,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. A detailed allocation of funding by 
activity is included in the table at the end of this section of 
the statement.

                Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation

      The conference agreement provides $5,000,000 for 
Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation, as proposed by the 
Senate instead of $5,250,000 as proposed by the House.

                Multinational Species Conservation Fund

      The conference agreement provides $11,500,000 for the 
Multinational Species Conservation Fund as proposed by both the 
House and the Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by 
program area and activity is included in the table at the end 
of the statement.

                    STATE AND TRIBAL WILDLIFE GRANTS

      The conference agreement provides $90,000,000 for State 
and Tribal Wildlife Grants instead of $115,000,000 as proposed 
by the House and $80,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
detailed allocation of funding by program area and activity is 
included in the table at the end of the statement. In addition 
to the directions included in the House and Senate Committee 
reports, the conference agreement includes the following 
directions:
      The conference agreement includes $12,000,000 for 
competitive grants, including $7,000,000 for Tribes and 
$5,000,000 for States. The conferees are supportive of these 
competitive grant programs as a way to promote wildlife 
conservation. The conferees direct the Service to report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the use of 
these competitive funds in fiscal year 2008 and 2009, including 
the types of grants administered and the extent to which these 
grants were coordinated with other State and Tribal 
conservation plans. The Service should submit this report 
within 90 days of enactment of this Act.
      The conference agreement includes $78,000,000, an 
increase of $15,000,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level for the State and Tribal apportioned grants. The 
conferees recognize the need for States, Tribes and Territories 
to update their plans to respond to climate change, but feel 
that this can be done within the framework of the required plan 
updates. Therefore, the conferees have not included language 
directing a portion of these funds for additional planning 
efforts focused on climate change. The conferees consider 
climate change to be an integral component of State and Tribal 
wildlife action plan implementation and recommend that the 
States use the increased funding provided for on-the-ground 
conservation projects to adapt and mitigate the effects of 
climate change on wildlife populations.
      Bill Language.--The conference agreement modifies bill 
language included in the House and Senate bills changing the 
State share of implementation grants to 35 percent instead of 
25 percent as proposed by the House and 50 percent as proposed 
by the Senate. In addition, the conference agreement does not 
include language included by the House that limits funding to 
States or territories that do not have approved wildlife action 
plans. The conferees understand that all States, territories 
and other jurisdictions now have approved plans.
      The conference agreement does not include requested funds 
for Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration.

                       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS

      Bill Language.--The conference agreement includes 
language, as in the Senate bill, allowing the Service to carry 
out the operations of programs by direct expenditure, 
contracts, grants, cooperative agreements and reimbursable 
agreements with public and private entities. This language was 
previously included in the Resource Management account.

                         National Park Service

                 OPERATION OF THE NATIONAL PARK SYSTEM

      The conference agreement provides $2,261,559,000 for the 
Operation of the National Park System instead of $2,260,684,000 
as proposed by the House and $2,261,309,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by program and 
activity for this account is included in the table at the end 
of the statement. The conference agreement also includes the 
following specific funding levels and directions:
      Resource Stewardship.--Within the amount provided, the 
conference agreement provides the request of $10,000,000 for 
the Climate Impacts Initiative as proposed by the House instead 
of $8,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The agreement also 
provides $1,250,000 for the Enhanced Ocean and Coastal 
Resources program, as proposed by the House instead of 
$2,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      Visitor Services.--Within the amount provided, the 
conference agreement provides $247,386,000 for Visitor Services 
as proposed by the Senate instead of $246,511,000 as proposed 
by the House. The conferees have provided $375,000 for the web 
learning component of the Interpretative Renaissance Plan and 
redirect $1,000,000 of the request to a new pilot program for 
teaching American history and civics in the National Parks as 
proposed by the Senate. The conferees further direct the 
Service to work with the Department of Education to develop 
curriculum and bring scholars to park units to instruct 
students and teachers and within 90 days of enactment provide a 
report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
concerning the status of the pilot program.
      Facilities Operations and Maintenance.--The conference 
agreement provides $702,013,000 as proposed by the House 
instead of $703,013,000 as proposed by the Senate. Within the 
amount provided, the conferees provide $4,388,000 for the 
facility management software system.
      Bill Language.--The conference agreement includes 
language to limit the amount for maintenance, repair or 
rehabilitation projects to $98,622,000 as proposed by the House 
instead of $99,622,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      National Mall Concerts.--As proposed by the House, the 
conferees direct the National Park Service to increase funding 
for this program by $350,000 over the level provided in fiscal 
year 2009.
      Sesquicentennial Civil War Planning.--The conferees 
encourage the National Park Service, in collaboration with the 
Civil War Preservation Trust and other organizations, to update 
the content of its website and the information available at its 
Civil War parks and to employ modern technology and adaptive 
and interactive media to present this information to the 
public.
      Regional Reorganizations.--The conferees have recently 
become aware of a planned reorganization of the Northeast 
Regional Office of the Park Service. The conferees appreciate 
the Service's willingness to provide information about the 
planned reorganization and ask that the Service continue to 
report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations its 
plans for managing the current programs administered by the 
Boston Regional Office and Service proposals to further change 
the staffing plan for that office.
      Sequoia National Park.--The conferees are aware that the 
Department of the Interior has been negotiating the renewal 
terms of a special use permit for the Kaweah hydroelectric 
project inside Sequoia National Park. Initial proposals from 
the Department would have resulted in a 2,545 percent fee 
increase to the operator. The conferees find that situation 
unacceptable. As such, the Department is directed to continue 
its negotiations in an effort to reach a fair, cost-effective 
agreement for the terms of a 10-year special use permit.
      Mississippi River Study.--The conferees note that the 
Mississippi River is one of the Nation's great natural 
treasures, an integral part of the country's history, and a 
critical transportation artery for modern commerce. As such, 
the protection and preservation of natural resources along the 
Mississippi River, and the telling of the history of this great 
resource is an important and worthy goal. The conferees 
therefore direct the Service to identify those natural and 
cultural resources most in need of protection and preservation 
and to begin to craft a plan that would address these needs. In 
undertaking this task, the Service shall consult with the 
various Federal, State and local units of government along the 
corridor, and with non-governmental organizations and partner 
coalitions working on preservation and interpretation 
initiatives within or along the corridor.

                    Park Partnership Project Grants

      The conference agreement provides $15,000,000 for Park 
Partnership Project Grants instead of $25,000,000 as proposed 
by the House. Of the amount provided, $10,000,000 will be 
proportionally derived from the unobligated balance in the 
recreation fee account. The conferees urge the Director to fund 
signature projects and programs consistent with the original 
intent of the program. The conferees direct the Service to 
provide a report within 90 days of enactment of this Act that 
(1) outlines the status of the projects announced in January 
2009; and (2) provides the criteria to be used to select new 
projects. After the Service competes the remaining funds for 
new projects, the Service will provide the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations a complete description of the new 
projects selected and describe the funds allotted for each 
project from both Federal and non-Federal sources.
      Bill Language.--The conferees have included language that 
authorizes the National Park Service to use a portion of the 
high unobligated recreation fee balance to fund projects 
selected through the Park Partnerships Program.
      Recreation Fees.--The conferees remain concerned by the 
National Park Service's ineffective management of its 
recreation fee revenues which has led to high unobligated 
carryover balances over many years. It is clear that dramatic 
changes are needed to address this problem.
      The conferees understand that the Service, in response to 
Congressional expressions of concern, has developed a phased 
plan to aggressively reduce the recreation fee carryover 
balance which was more than $270,000,000 at the beginning of 
fiscal year 2009. Further, the conferees recognize that 
existing authority provides the Service sufficient flexibility 
to address this challenge by reducing the allocation of fee 
revenues to the largest collecting parks from 80 percent to 60 
percent as needed. The conferees encourage the Park Service to 
exercise this authority fully to meet its goal, as outlined by 
the Service, to reduce the end-of-year carryover balance to no 
more than $80,000,000 by January, 2011.
      When implemented fully, this plan will redirect funds 
away from collecting parks with high carryover balances to fund 
nationally ranked projects that can be commenced quickly. Parks 
will receive at least 60 percent of their annual collections, 
which is the minimum allowed by law. To allow these changes to 
take effect, the conferees will not direct specific changes to 
the management of the fee program at this time. However, the 
conferees will closely monitor the implementation of this 
effort to ensure it dramatically reduces recreation fee 
carryover balances and results in more efficient use of fee 
revenues. Lastly, the conferees reserve the option of taking 
future action to ensure adequate management of recreation fee 
dollars.

                  NATIONAL RECREATION AND PRESERVATION

      The conference agreement provides $68,436,000 for the 
National Recreation and Preservation program instead of 
$59,386,000 as proposed by the House and $67,438,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by 
program and activity for this account is included in the table 
at the end of the statement. The conference agreement also 
includes the following specific funding levels and directions:
      Cultural Programs.--The conferees have included bill 
language in General Provisions, Department of the Interior, 
amending the Japanese-American Confinement Site Grants program 
by authorizing land acquisition grants at the Heart Mountain 
Relocation Center, WY, as proposed by the House. Similar House 
bill language authorizing land acquisition grants and donations 
at Minidoka National Historic Site is not included. At the 
request of the Department, the conferees have withdrawn the 
language because of an unresolved issue involving a pre-
existing right-of-way and crossing agreement for the Southwest 
Intertie Project's renewable energy transmission line within or 
near the Minidoka National Historic Site boundary. The 
conferees urge the Secretary to resolve the issue quickly, 
giving fair consideration to the existing rights of all land 
and permit holders, refraining from acquiring any donations of 
land or interests therein during the 90 day period following 
enactment of this Act so that a suitable resolution can be 
reached, and reporting any progress to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations within 90 days of enactment of 
this Act. The conferees remain supportive of the Secretary's 
renewable energy initiative and also recognize that the Federal 
government has an obligation to preserve lands for the Minidoka 
National Historic Site and other relocation centers and to 
provide for their preservation and interpretation. Accordingly, 
the conferees have provided $350,000 for land acquisition and 
$3,000,000 for the Japanese-American Confinement Site Grants 
program.
      Heritage Partnership Program.--Within the amount 
provided, the conference agreement provides $16,805,000 for 
commissions and grants as proposed by the House instead of 
$16,732,000 as proposed by the Senate. The increase above the 
request will provide at least $150,000 to new heritage areas 
without approved plans.
      Preserve America.--The conference agreement provides 
$4,600,000 for Preserve America. The conferees have funded this 
program under the National Recreation and Preservation account, 
instead of the Historic Preservation Fund account as proposed 
by the House.
      Statutory or Contractual Aid.--The conference agreement 
provides $5,850,000 for Statutory or Contractual Aid, instead 
of $1,900,000 as proposed by the House and $5,350,000 proposed 
by the Senate. The funds provided are to be distributed as 
follows:

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

      Everglades.--The conference agreement includes $8,400,000 
for the Modified Water Deliveries Project at Everglades 
National Park as proposed by the House. This includes 
$4,200,000 which the President had requested in the budget for 
the Army Corps of Engineers. These funds will allow for 
continuous work on the Tamiami Trail bridge and road 
modifications as a first step to return water flow to the Park. 
It is critical that the bridging of the Tamiami Trail be 
completed at the earliest possible date so that flows can be 
restored between Everglades National Park and the State-managed 
Water Conservation Areas.
      Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park.--Of the 
amount provided, the conferees have included $500,000 for the 
Park Service's general management plan for the Paterson Great 
Falls National Historical Park.
      Castillo de San Marcos National Monument.--The conferees 
have included $500,000 for preliminary planning and design of 
the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument restoration 
project with the understanding that construction will not 
commence until fee simple title of the affected property is 
conveyed to the Federal government by the City of St. 
Augustine, FL and the State of Florida.
      Bill Language.--The conference agreement includes 
language for the Everglades Modified Water Projects as proposed 
by the House. The agreement also authorizes a single contract 
for the full scope of the Elwha Dam project. The conference 
agreement does not include statutory language proposed by the 
House to authorize a special resources study along the 
Mississippi River. The conferees have addressed this issue in 
report language under the Operation of the National Park System 
account. The conference agreement also provides that 
construction funds for the Quincy Smelter stabilization project 
at Keweenaw National Historical Park shall be made without 
regard to requirements in section 8(b) of Public Law 102-543, 
as amended.

                    LAND AND WATER CONSERVATION FUND

                              (RESCISSION)

      The conference agreement rescinds $30,000,000, as in 
previous years, in annual contract authority. There are no 
plans to use this authority in fiscal year 2010.

                 LAND ACQUISITION AND STATE ASSISTANCE

      The conference agreement includes $126,266,000 for Land 
Acquisition and State Assistance instead of $113,222,000 as 
proposed by the House and $118,586,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The conference agreement includes the following 
distribution of funds:

                      Minerals Management Service

                ROYALTY AND OFFSHORE MINERALS MANAGEMENT

      The conference agreement includes $175,217,000 for 
Royalty and Offshore Minerals Management, as proposed by the 
Senate instead of $174,317,000 as proposed by the House. The

      The conferees support the Administration's efforts to 
secure a balanced energy portfolio that carefully weighs what 
is in the best interest of our energy-dependent nation with 
what is in the best interest of our natural environment. Future 
coordinated efforts to pursue additional oil and gas resources 
in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) must include the 
opportunity to apply advanced technologies, be based on the 
best available science, and take into account the potential 
environmental impacts of such potential development. Therefore, 
the conferees direct the Minerals Management Service, pursuant 
to the National Environmental Policy Act, to conduct a 
Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) to evaluate 
potential significant environmental effects of multiple 
geological and geophysical activities in the Atlantic OCS and 
provide a detailed timeline for completion of the PEIS no later 
than 90 days after enactment of this Act. The conferees believe 
this request is consistent with the Department's stated desire 
to fill in information gaps relating to resource potential in 
the OCS.
      The conferees note that over the last several years there 
have been expanded areas available for oil and gas leasing in 
the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas and approved exploration plans 
involving seismic testing and exploratory drilling in these 
waters. These waters currently host a rich diversity of 
wildlife and fish resources and are critical to the survival of 
the subsistence culture of the Inupiat people of Arctic Alaska. 
To ensure sound science-based planning with regard to these 
important resources, a continuing comprehensive assessment of 
the health, biodiversity, and functioning of Arctic marine and 
coastal ecosystems, including the impacts of industrial 
activities and of climate change is needed. To inform this 
continuing assessment, the conferees believe that there should 
be scientific analysis conducted by an independent entity to 
assess existing scientific information and identify any 
relevant additional information to ensure adequate 
environmental review of proposed industrial activities in the 
region. This assessment should also include recommendations for 
obtaining the identified relevant scientific information.

                           OIL SPILL RESEARCH

fiscal year 2009 enacted bill on a legislative matter which 
deducts two percent of State royalties to help cover Federal 
administrative costs, resulting in a $45,000,000 scoring credit 
for the bill.

program level of $127,280,000. The detailed allocation of 
funding by program area and activity is included in the table 
at the end of the statement.

                    ABANDONED MINE RECLAMATION FUND

      The conference agreement includes $35,588,000 for the 
Abandoned Mine Reclamation Fund instead of $32,088,000 as 
proposed by the House and $39,588,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by program area and 
activity is included in the table at the end of the statement.

their law enforcement needs by constructing a justice center to 
house their adult and juvenile detention and rehabilitation 
center, Tribal courts, and police department. The conferees 
encourage the Bureau of Indian Affairs to work with the 
Shoshone-Bannock Tribes to ensure that the Center and the 
programs it will provide will operate effectively. 
Additionally, the conferees encourage the Bureau to consider 
establishing regional detention centers at new or existing 
facilities as it works to combat the crime problem in Indian 
Country.
      Community and Economic Development.--The conference 
agreement includes $44,910,000 as proposed by the House instead 
of $43,910,000 as proposed by the Senate. Within the funds for

                        Department-Wide Programs

                        Wildland Fire Management

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $919,897,000 for 
Department of the Interior Wildland Fire Management instead of 
$932,780,000 as proposed by the House and $904,637,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement also includes 
an additional $61,000,000 for the new Department of the 
Interior FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund as described 
below. The Senate had included $75,000,000 for a contingency 
reserve fund within this account, whereas the House had 
included $75,000,000 in a separate Wildland Fire Suppression 
Contingency Reserve account as was in the budget request. The 
detailed allocation of funding by activity for these accounts 
is included in the table at the end of the statement. The 
conferees note that the funding provided includes the use of 
$125,000,000 in prior year non-emergency funds because the 
suppression activity had very large carry-over balances from 
fiscal year 2009. In addition to the directions provided in the 
House and Senate committee reports, the conference agreement 
also provides the following directions:
      Wildfire Preparedness.--The conference agreement provides 
$290,452,000 as proposed by the House instead of $289,192,000 
as proposed by the Senate.
      Wildfire Suppression Operations.--The conference 
agreement includes $383,797,000 for wildland fire suppression 
instead of $369,797,000 as proposed by the House and 
$294,797,000 as proposed by the Senate. The Senate 
recommendation included an allocation of $75,000,000 within the 
suppression amount for a wildfire suppression contingency 
reserve. The conferees note the use of $125,000,000 in prior 
year funding. An additional $61,000,000 for suppression 
activities is provided in the new FLAME Wildfire Suppression 
Reserve Fund. The conferees note that the Forest Service 
wildland fire suppression accounts are provided an additional 
$1,410,505,000, including $413,000,000 in the new Forest 
Service FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund. Thus, the sum 
for wildfire suppression for both Departments, including both 
the suppression and the FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund 
accounts, is $1,855,302,000. This sum is equal to the request 
and $526,164,000 above the fiscal year 2009 funding level. This 
is the largest funding increase ever provided for non-emergency 
wildfire suppression activities.
      The conferees reiterate that both the Interior Department 
and the Forest Service should ensure that cost containment is 
an important priority when suppressing wildland fires. Both 
Departments must examine and report promptly to the Congress 
and on agency websites, using independent panels, on each and 
every individual wildfire incident which results in suppression 
expenses greater than $10,000,000.
      The conferees intend that amounts provided through the 
FLAME Fund, together with amounts provided through the Wildland 
Fire Management appropriations account, should fully fund 
anticipated wildland fire suppression requirements in advance 
of the fire season and prevent future borrowing from non-fire 
programs. To satisfy this requirement, the conferees direct the 
Secretaries to develop new methods for formulating fire 
suppression funding estimates for the Wildland Fire Management 
and FLAME Fund appropriations accounts as part of their fiscal 
year 2011 budget request. In formulating these estimates, the 
conferees expect the Secretaries to consider data regarding 
actual prior-year fire suppression expenditures, predictive 
modeling, and any other criteria that they deem appropriate, 
consistent with the direction provided in this Act. It is the 
intent of conferees to provide sufficient funds for FLAME 
Wildfire Suppression Reserve accounts to preclude the necessity 
for transferring funds from other non-fire programs and 
activities except in unusual circumstances.
      Other Wildland Fire Management Operations.--The 
conference agreement provides $206,206,000 for hazardous fuels 
reduction activities at the Department of the Interior as 
requested and proposed by the Senate instead of $233,089,000 as 
proposed by the House. The conference agreement provides the 
requested funding for the other subactivities as was proposed 
by both the House and the Senate.
      Bill Language.--The conference agreement includes the 
House proposed language allowing up to $50,000,000 to be 
transferred between the Interior Department and the Forest 
Service when such transfers would facilitate and expedite 
jointly funded wildland fire management programs and projects. 
Bill language is included that directs the Department to make 
no less than $125,000,000 in prior year non-emergency 
suppression funds available for wildfire suppression purposes 
in addition to amounts otherwise provided. The agreement also 
includes the Senate proposed language stating that wildfire 
suppression funds may be used for support of Federal emergency 
response actions.
      The conference does not include the Wildland Fire 
Contingency Reserve Fund which was in the request and the House 
recommendation. Instead, funds are provided for the FLAME 
Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund, as described below.

                FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $61,000,000 for the new 
Department of the Interior FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve 
Fund established in the FLAME Act of 2009 (Title V of this 
Act). The Senate had included $75,000,000 within the Wildland 
Fire Management account for a suppression reserve, whereas the 
House had included, as requested, $75,000,000 for a separate 
Wildland Fire Suppression Contingency Reserve Fund. Further 
direction on the use of this new account is provided in Title 
V.
      A similar account in the Forest Service is also provided 
an additional $413,000,000. The conferees note that this is the 
first year for this new account, so adjustments will be 
required by the Federal wildfire community. The funding 
provided this year as a beginning allocation is equal to the 
actual expenditures during fiscal year 2009 by the Department 
of the Interior on large wildfire suppression events, as 
defined by the FLAME Act of 2009. The conferees have 
established these funding levels to give the Department of the 
Interior and the Forest Service some degree of funding 
flexibility as they develop appropriate procedures and 
infrastructure for the FLAME Funds. However, these levels are 
not intended to represent a final method for calculating FLAME 
Fund budget requests. Instead, as provided in Title V, the 
conferees expect the agencies to develop new methods for 
formulating fire suppression funding estimates for the Wildland 
Fire Management and FLAME Fund appropriations accounts as part 
of their fiscal year 2011 budget request.

                    Central Hazardous Materials Fund

                Natural Resource Damage Assessment Fund

      The conference agreement provides $6,462,000 for the 
Natural Resource Damage Assessment Fund as requested and as 
proposed by both the House and the Senate. The detailed 
allocation of funding by activity is included in the table at 
the end of the statement.

                          Working Capital Fund

      The conference agreement provides $85,823,000 for the 
Working Capital Fund as proposed by the Senate, instead of 
$75,823,000 as proposed by the House.

               TITLE II--ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

                         Science and Technology

      The conference agreement provides $846,049,000 for 
Science and Technology programs instead of $849,649,000 as 
proposed by the House and $842,799,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The conference agreement also transfers $26,834,000 
from the Hazardous Substance Superfund account to this account. 
The detailed allocation of funding by program area and activity 
for this account is included in the table at the end of the 
statement. The conference agreement also includes the following 
specific funding levels and directions:
      Homeland Security.--From within the amount provided, the 
conference agreement fully funds the remaining two Water 
Security Initiative pilot projects.
      Research/National Priorities.--The conference agreement 
provides $5,700,000 for this program and allocates the funds as 
proposed by the House instead of a competitive grant program 
proposed by the Senate. The conferees have agreed to the 
following allocation of funds: $2,000,000 for the Water 
Environment Research Foundation; $1,700,000 for the Water 
Research Foundation; $1,000,000 for the Southwest Consortium 
for Environmental Research and Policy; and $1,000,000 for the 
Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research.
      Research: Human Health and Ecosystems.--The conference 
agreement includes no less than $11,442,000 for endocrine 
disruptor research. In addition, the conferees direct a portion 
of the increase provided for the Integrated Risk Information 
System Health Assessments to expedite the risk assessment for 
trichloroethylene (TCE). The conference agreement includes an 
additional $3,000,000 for children's environmental health 
research instead of $5,000,000 as proposed by the House. Of 
this amount $2,000,000 is directed to increase the base program 
for centers of excellence on children's environmental health 
and is to be divided equally among the four centers. The 
conferees urge that at least one of these centers focus on 
child care settings. The remaining $1,000,000 is directed to 
accelerate research on the effects of environmental chemicals 
and toxins on children.
      Air Quality Research.--The conferees encourage the Agency 
to establish a competitively awarded, national research 
facility to help address many of the issues relating to air 
quality, as noted in the House report. The conferees note the 
need for additional air quality research such as that conducted 
by the University of California, Riverside.
      Hydraulic Fracturing Study.--The conferees urge the 
Agency to carry out a study on the relationship between 
hydraulic fracturing and drinking water, using a credible 
approach that relies on the best available science, as well as 
independent sources of information. The conferees expect the 
study to be conducted through a transparent, peer-reviewed 
process that will ensure the validity and accuracy of the data. 
The Agency shall consult with other Federal agencies as well as 
appropriate State and interstate regulatory agencies in 
carrying out the study, which should be prepared in accordance 
with the Agency's quality assurance principles.
      Health Effects of Fuel Efficiency and Emission Reduction 
Efforts.--The conferees are aware that efforts to improve fuel 
efficiency and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will require 
careful evaluation for potential consequences for human health 
and the environment. To ensure that the Agency can meet the 
need for this critical information in a timely and credible 
manner, the conferees encourage the Agency to work with 
experienced and independent extramural research partners to 
strengthen ongoing human health research and assessment efforts 
on alternative fuels, engines, and emission reduction 
technologies.
      Black Carbon.--The conferees have included a modified 
version of language originally proposed by the Senate in the 
Administrative Provisions section requiring the Administrator 
to complete and transmit a study on black carbon to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations, the House Energy and 
Commerce Committee and the Senate Environment and Public Works 
Committee no later than 18 months after the date of enactment 
of this Act. The conferees agree that the Administrator shall 
carry out the study in consultation with other relevant Federal 
partners. The conferees further direct the Agency to fund this 
study from within amounts provided to the Office of Air and 
Radiation in either the Science and Technology account or the 
Environmental Programs and Management account or a combination 
of funds from each account. Bill language has been included in 
the Administrative Provisions section mandating this report.
      Great Lakes Emission Control Areas.--Language has been 
included in the General Provisions section concerning the rule 
to control emissions from new marine compression-ignition 
engines. EPA is conducting a rulemaking (74 Fed. Reg. 44442) 
regarding fuel sulfur standards that will apply to vessels 
including those that are powered by large marine diesel 
engines, called Category 3 engines. While these standards can 
achieve significant health and welfare benefits, they can also 
impose significant costs on the industry and on a region whose 
economy is already reeling. EPA has received comments detailing 
significant negative economic impacts for carriers that operate 
Category 3 engine vessels exclusively within the Great Lakes 
and their connecting and tributary waters and therefore for the 
economy of the region. Because of these economic impacts, EPA 
should include waiver provisions similar to those in other EPA 
rules in the final rule--one to waive the 10,000 ppm sulfur 
standard for Great Lakes Category 3 diesel engine vessels that 
burn residual fuel if EPA determines that 10,000 ppm residual 
fuel is not available; and one to waive fuel requirements for 
an owner/operator of a Great Lakes Category 3 diesel engine 
vessel based upon a showing of serious economic hardship. It is 
important that EPA structure such a waiver provision similar to 
the other fuels rules, where parties can apply for and receive 
a waiver in sufficient time prior to the implementation of the 
requirements. Finally, EPA should perform a study and issue a 
report within six months that evaluates the economic impact of 
the final rule on Great Lakes carriers.

                 Environmental Programs and Management

      The conference agreement provides $2,993,779,000 for 
Environmental Programs and Management activities instead of 
$3,022,054,000 as proposed by the House and $2,878,780,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by 
program area and activity for this account is included in the 
table at the end of the statement. The conference agreement 
also includes the following specific funding levels and 
directions:
      Brownfields.--The conference agreement provides the 
request of $1,246,000 for the Smart Growth Program. As proposed 
by the Senate, the agreement does not provide the requested 
funds for additional personnel. The House had proposed to fund 
one-half of the increase.
      Compliance.--From within the amount provided, the 
conferees direct $25,070,000 for compliance assistance and 
centers and $9,702,000 for compliance incentives.
      Environmental Protection/National Priorities.--The 
conference agreement provides $16,950,000 for this program and 
allocates the funds as proposed by the House instead of a 
competitive grant program as proposed by the Senate. The 
conferees have agreed to the following allocation of funds: 
$13,000,000 for the National Rural Water Association; 
$2,500,000 for the Rural Community Assistance Partnership; 
$700,000 for the Water Systems Council/WellCare program; and 
$750,000 for the National Biosolids Partnership.
      Geographic Programs.--The conference agreement provides 
$608,441,000 for this program area instead of $628,941,000 as 
proposed by the House and $478,696,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by specific 
geographic program area is included in the table at the end of 
the statement. In addition to these specific amounts, the 
conference agreement includes the following directives for 
certain programs.
      Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.--The conference 
agreement provides $475,000,000 for this new initiative. The 
conferees support the Administration's efforts to restore the 
Great Lakes and have agreed to the request to fund an 
interagency restoration effort, led by the Environmental 
Protection Agency. In addition, the conferees have agreed to 
consolidate and expand funding for the Agency's Great Lakes 
National Program Office and Great Lakes Legacy Act programs 
within this new program-project.
      Bill language has been included to allow the Agency to 
transfer funding to or establish interagency agreements with 
other Federal agencies, and to make grants to relevant entities 
as appropriate. The conferees direct the Agency to work with 
the other Federal agencies to ensure these funds supplement and 
expand, not supplant, base Great Lakes programs when compared 
to fiscal year 2009 levels. The Agency is directed to provide, 
starting on March 1, 2010, annual reports that provide funding 
allocations by Agency and that identify any adjustments from 
the request. Beginning in 2011 and each year thereafter, the 
Agency is directed to provide detailed yearly program 
accomplishments and compare specific funding levels allocated 
for participating Federal agencies from fiscal year to fiscal 
year. This includes programs funded at or below $500,000 that 
may not otherwise be identified in cross-cut budgets. The 
Agency and its Federal partners are expected to limit overhead.
      The Agency is directed to use the Great Lakes Regional 
Collaboration Strategy as a guide to maximize funding for 
actual restoration activities that achieve measurable results. 
A substantial portion of the funds shall be provided for 
restoration activities conducted by non-Federal partners to 
accomplish restoration objectives where appropriate and cost-
effective. The conferees direct the Agency and the other 
Federal agencies to exercise maximum flexibility to minimize 
non-Federal match requirements in recognition of the 
exceptional economic circumstances of the region and the 
significant ongoing investments made by non-Federal partners.
      To guide the activities of the Great Lakes Restoration 
Initiative through fiscal year 2014, including funding 
decisions in fiscal year 2011 and future years, the conferees 
direct the Agency to develop a comprehensive, multi-year 
restoration action plan that will lead to the restoration of 
the Great Lakes. The action plan should build upon the 
foundation of the Great Lakes Regional Collaboration Strategy, 
utilize input from Great Lakes stakeholders, outline Federal 
agency actions to help protect and restore the chemical, 
physical, and biological integrity of the Great Lakes Basin 
ecosystem, and include targets and measurable objectives 
expected for fiscal years 2010 through 2014. The Agency should 
ensure that the goals, objectives, and targets of the Action 
Plan are aligned with those of the Great Lakes State, local and 
Tribal governments. The plan should also include a description 
of the process used to track and measure progress, target 
restoration priorities and adapt and modify those priorities in 
the outyears. In addition, the conferees expect the Agency to 
establish a process that:
      (1) Allows the Great Lakes area governors, mayors, Tribal 
leaders, regional organizations and other stakeholders to 
provide advice, guidance, and recommendations that will assist 
the Agency in making annual decisions on restoration 
priorities, activities, projects, and funding levels that 
reflect the highest priority needs;
      (2) Coordinates restoration activities in the U.S. with 
those of the Canadian and provincial governments;
      (3) Engages an independent, scientific panel to review 
the scientific credibility of the plan to optimize the 
likelihood of successful restoration at appropriate scales; 
and,
      (4) Ensures monitoring and reporting on the progress of 
the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, using scientific 
research to revise restoration priorities as needed, and adapt 
and modify activities beginning in fiscal year 2011.
      In considering the appropriate science for the process, 
the Agency shall consider that independent scientific reviews 
are the preferred method for some elements and activities to 
ensure that the best available science guides efforts to 
restore the Great Lakes. However, the Agency may selectively 
use and scale these scientific reviews so that the rate of 
progress is optimized at the same time scientific validation is 
ensured. The Agency shall determine those elements for which 
additional scientific validation is needed to expedite 
restoration while providing the Agency with the basis for 
optimizing successful restoration programs and projects to 
advance the goals, objectives, and restoration priorities of 
the action plan.
      The conferees support funding Habitat and Wildlife 
Protection and Restoration through the National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration at the Department of Commerce, as 
proposed by the Administration, and expect that funds will be 
expended on land conservation priorities that meaningfully 
contribute to the goals of the Initiative through the Coastal 
and Estuarine Land Conservation Program (CELCP). As with the 
other funds provided for the Great Lakes Restoration 
Initiative, the conferees further expect that these funds would 
supplement, rather than replace, CELCP funds provided in any 
other appropriations bill for priority projects in the Great 
Lakes region.
      Chesapeake Bay.--The conference agreement includes 
$50,000,000 for this program. In light of the new Executive 
Order on the Bay, which places additional demands on and 
expectations of the Agency and States, the conferees have 
included an increase above the request. The conferees direct 
the Agency to report within 30 days of enactment a proposed 
allocation of the additional funds. The conferees expect this 
allocation to recognize that the funds are intended to support 
additional regulatory and accountability programs to control 
urban, suburban and agricultural runoff in the watershed. The 
allocation should emphasize increases to State grant programs 
to support and expand the States' regulatory and enforcement 
capabilities.
      Puget Sound.--The conference agreement includes 
$50,000,000 for this program. From within the funds provided, 
$4,000,000 is included for the Puget Sound Ecosystem Research 
Initiative at the University of Washington's College of the 
Environment. These funds are to conduct, coordinate, and 
disseminate scientific research to inform policy decisions 
necessary to carry out the Puget Sound Action Agenda. The 
remaining funds are for the Agency's intramural costs, 
cooperative agreements, interagency agreements, contracts and 
competitive grants, including a competitive grant to manage 
implementation of the Action Agenda. Prior to announcing any 
requests for proposals for competitive grants, the conferees 
expect the Agency to coordinate with the State on priorities 
for the proposals.
      San Francisco Bay.--The conference agreement includes 
$7,000,000 to continue its competitive grant program to restore 
the San Francisco Bay watershed and improve water quality. The 
Agency shall use no more than five percent of the funds 
provided for the costs of administering the program.
      Long Island Sound.--The conferees direct the Agency to 
work with the appropriate stakeholders to determine the proper 
allocation of funds between the Long Island Sound Restoration 
Act and the Long Island Sound Stewardship Act. The Agency is 
directed to report to the Committees on the final distribution 
of the funds.
      Other Geographic Activities.--The conference agreement 
includes $2,000,000 for a competitive grant program to protect 
the Potomac Highlands. The conferees recognize the Agency's 
commitment to protecting the Potomac Highlands through 
conservation and ecological restoration initiatives. The Agency 
shall use no more than 10 percent of the funds for intramural 
costs, with the remaining funds awarded on a competitive basis 
for projects identified in the Highlands Action Plan.
      Information Exchange/Outreach.--The conference agreement 
provides $129,972,000 for this program area. Within this 
amount, the conferees direct the following levels: $6,515,000 
for children and other sensitive populations; $50,480,000 for 
Congressional, intergovernmental, external relations; 
$9,038,000 for environmental education; and, $16,860,000 for 
the exchange network. The conference agreement does not include 
additional funding for the Office of Children's Health 
Protection as proposed by the House.
      IT/Data Management/Security.--The conference agreement 
provides $104,320,000 for this program. The conferees direct 
that funding for the Agency's library system be exempted from 
this reduction.
      Legal/Science/Regulatory/Economic Review.--The conference 
agreement provides $123,788,000 for this program. The conferees 
have not provided funds for the Performance Track program. The 
conferees direct the Agency to provide, at a minimum, the 
requested level for the Smart Growth Program. The conference 
agreement reflects the reduction to the Regulatory/Economic-
Management and Analysis program as proposed by the House.
      Operations and Administration.--The conference agreement 
provides $501,895,000 for this program, which includes a 
$5,000,000 reduction to the request for the Financial System 
Modernization Project. The Agency may take the remaining 
$5,000,000 reduction from rent, utilities and/or security 
savings.
      Water: Ecosystems.--From within the amount provided, the 
conference agreement includes $22,400,000 for the National 
Estuary Grant Program instead of $28,000,000 proposed by the 
House and $16,800,000 proposed by the Senate. This increase 
will provide $800,000 to each National Estuary Program funded 
under section 320 of the Clean Water Act.
      Water Quality Protection.--From within the amount 
provided, the conference agreement includes $208,437,000 for 
the Surface Water Protection program.
      Bill Language.--Language is included which mandates the 
amount allocated to the Geographic Programs.
      National Vehicle Mercury Switch Recovery Program.--The 
conferees are aware that the National Vehicle Mercury Switch 
Recovery Program is an effective way to reduce mercury 
emissions from end-of-life vehicles. The conferees have not 
included bill language as proposed by the Senate; however, the 
conferees remain concerned that the program's operating fund 
and bounty fund have both been depleted since August, 2009. The 
conferees urge the Agency to assist program stakeholders in 
exploring all options to ensure the program's continued 
operation.
      OCS Air Permits.--The conferees are concerned about the 
ability of the Agency to effectively carry out its 
responsibilities to process oil and gas permits in the Outer 
Continental Shelf (OCS) in Alaska and the Eastern Gulf of 
Mexico. The Agency is directed to allocate sufficient funds and 
personnel to process OCS air permits in a timely manner 
consistent with all environmental laws. Within 90 days of 
enactment of this Act, the Agency is directed to report to the 
House and Senate Appropriations Committees on its progress to 
comply with this directive, provide a detailed timeline for 
issuance of the pending permits, and submit its plan to address 
this issue consistently among all affected regional offices. 
Lastly, the conferees expect the Agency to set clear, 
reasonable national guidelines for issuing OCS air permits.
      Gulf of Maine.--The conferees urge the Agency to 
undertake a study of pollution and water quality issues in the 
Gulf of Maine with the assistance of regional stakeholders to 
determine whether a comprehensive restoration plan should be 
developed for this region.

                      Office of Inspector General

      The conference agreement provides $44,791,000 for the 
Office of Inspector General as requested and as proposed by 
both the House and the Senate. The detailed allocation of 
funding by program area and activity for this account is 
included in the table at the end of the statement. The 
conference agreement also includes $9,975,000 to be transferred 
from the Hazardous Substance Superfund account to this account.
      The conference agreement again includes bill language 
which authorizes the Agency's Inspector General (IG) to serve 
as the IG for the Chemical Safety and Hazards Investigation 
Board (the Board). The conferees have not included language in 
the Board's section of the bill to transfer funds from the 
Board's account to this account, as proposed by the House. The 
Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has confirmed that it has 
sufficient funds in fiscal year 2010 to perform its duties as 
IG for the Board. The conferees expect the OIG to continue to 
expand reviews of the Board beyond those mandated in law to 
include follow up on earlier GAO recommendations.
      The conferees also are concerned by the numerous 
reorganization proposals submitted by the Agency's OIG and the 
lack of sufficient notice regarding such proposals. The 
conferees direct the IG to submit a report describing any 
proposed reorganization within the OIG at least 90 days before 
any reorganization is to take effect. Any report filed shall 
describe the purpose and need for the reorganization, the 
impact to personnel and anticipated costs. The submission also 
should contain charts of the current and proposed 
organizational structure.
      The conferees have included language in the 
Administrative Provisions section expressing their displeasure 
with the inadequate OIG analysis of the Agency's unliquidated 
balances.

                        Buildings and Facilities

      The conference agreement provides $37,001,000 for 
Buildings and Facilities activities instead of $33,001,000 as 
proposed by the House and $35,001,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by program area and 
activity for this account is included in the table at the end 
of the statement.
      Bill Language.--The conferees have included modified 
language, as proposed by the Senate, directing the Agency to 
use up to $500,000 provided under this heading to begin 
preliminary planning and design work to consolidate the 
numerous offices and laboratories in the Las Vegas, NV area 
into a single sustainable building complex. As part of its 
planning and design process, the conferees expect the Agency to 
develop precise estimates of total cost savings from improved 
administrative efficiencies, workspace proximity and reductions 
in water and energy consumption of such a consolidation. Given 
recent legislative and executive mandates for Federal agencies 
to display leadership in adopting sustainable technologies such 
as the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, the EPAct 
of 2005, Executive Orders 13423 and 13514, and the American 
Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the conferees expect this 
project to further the Agency's mission to set an example for 
energy efficiency and environmental stewardship. Further, the 
conferees urge the Agency to include full funding for the next 
phase of this project as part of the Agency's fiscal year 2011 
budget request.

                     Hazardous Substance Superfund

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $1,306,541,000 for the 
Hazardous Substance Superfund program as proposed by the House 
instead of $1,308,541,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
conference agreement includes bill language to transfer 
$9,975,000 to the Inspector General account and $26,834,000 to 
the Science and Technology account as proposed by both the 
House and the Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by 
program area and activity for this account is included in the 
table at the end of the statement. The conference agreement 
also includes the following specific direction:
      Operations and Administration.--The conference agreement 
provides $6,068,000 for human resources management as proposed 
by the House instead of $8,068,000 as proposed by the Senate. 
The conferees have provided only a small increase above the 
fiscal year 2009 level because the Agency's budget assumes a 
personnel decrease in this account.
      Brookfield Avenue Landfill.--The conferees encourage the 
agency to reevaluate the inclusion of the Brookfield Avenue 
Landfill in Staten Island, NY on the Superfund National 
Priority List as proposed by the House.

          LEAKING UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANK TRUST FUND PROGRAM

      The conference agreement provides $113,101,000 for the 
Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund Program, as 
recommended by the House instead of $114,171,000 as proposed by 
the Senate. From within this amount, the conference agreement 
provides the request of $34,430,000 for the Energy Policy Act 
grants as proposed by the House instead of $35,500,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by 
program area and activity for this account is included in the 
table at the end of the statement.

                           OIL SPILL RESPONSE

      For the Oil Spill Response account, the conference 
agreement provides the request of $18,379,000 as proposed by 
both the House and the Senate. The detailed allocation of 
funding by program area and activity for this account is 
included in the table at the end of the statement.

                   State and Tribal Assistance Grants

      The conference agreement provides $4,970,223,000 for the 
State and Tribal Assistance Grants (STAG) instead of 
$5,215,446,000 as proposed by the House and $4,954,274,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by 
program area and activity for this account is included in the 
table at the end of the statement. The conference agreement 
also includes the following specific funding levels and 
directions:
      Infrastructure Assistance.--The bill provides 
$3,853,777,000 for infrastructure assistance instead of 
$4,100,000,000 as proposed by the House and $3,843,000,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      State Revolving Funds.--The conference agreement provides 
$2,100,000,000 for the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) 
and $1,387,000,000 for the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund. 
Both amounts are at the Senate proposed levels. These funds, 
combined with the STAG Infrastructure Grants, provide a total 
of $3,643,777,000 for water and wastewater infrastructure 
improvements. Bill language provides that not less than 30 
percent of the funds for each State drinking water SRF 
capitalization grant and 30 percent of the funds made available 
for State clean water SRF capitalization grants above 
$1,000,000,000 shall be used by the States to provide 
forgiveness of principal, negative interest loans or grants, or 
any combination of these. The conferees believe that priority 
for additional subsidies should be given to projects in 
communities that could not otherwise afford such projects and 
directs the Agency and the States to track how these subsidies 
are used and by what types of communities.
      Mexican Border Infrastructure.--The conference agreement 
provides $17,000,000 for the Mexico Border program instead of 
$20,000,000 as proposed by the House and $10,000,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. From within the amount provided, 
$2,500,000 is directed to the El Paso and Brownsville, TX 
projects as in prior years. The conferees direct the Agency to 
reduce unliquidated balances in this program and expedite 
construction of projects along the border.
      Targeted Airshed Grants.--The conference agreement 
includes $20,000,000 for this program as proposed by the Senate 
to reduce air pollution in the Nation's most polluted air 
districts. Of these funds, $10,000,000 shall be divided equally 
between the San Joaquin Air Pollution Control District and the 
South Coast Air Quality Management District. These grants shall 
continue emission reduction activities in the transportation, 
agriculture and ports sectors and shall be matched at least on 
a one-to-one basis. The remaining funds are for competitive 
grants to reduce air pollution in nonattainment areas that the 
Agency determines are ranked as the top five most polluted 
areas relative to annual ozone or particulate 
matter
2.5
 standards. The Agency is expected to 
follow the program directives included in the Senate report.
      Brownfields.--The conference agreement includes 
$100,000,000 for Brownfields programs as proposed by the House 
instead of $101,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. From within 
the amount provided, the conferees direct $1,800,000 for the 
Technical Assistance to Brownfields Communities program and 
expect the Agency to expand this program in future years.
      STAG Infrastructure Grants.--The conference agreement 
includes $156,777,000 for infrastructure assistance grants 
instead of $160,000,000 as proposed by the House and 
$150,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. Bill language has been 
included to incorporate these projects into law by reference 
and to require a local match of 45 percent of the total project 
costs as proposed by the House and Senate. The conferees note 
that technical corrections to prior year project designations 
have been included as part of the table below.
      The conferees have agreed to the following distribution 
of funds:
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

      Categorical Grants.--The bill provides $1,116,446,000 for 
categorical grants instead of $1,115,446,000 as proposed by the 
House and $1,111,274,000 as proposed by the Senate. Within this 
program area, the conference agreement includes:
      Climate Change Initiative Grants for Local Communities.--
The conference agreement includes $10,000,000 to continue this 
competitive grant program, which provides assistance to local 
governments to establish and implement climate change 
initiatives. The Agency is expected to follow the program 
directives included in the House report.
      Section 106 Water Quality Grants.--The conferees are very 
concerned by recent reports that EPA and the States are not 
keeping pace with Clean Water Act enforcement requirements and 
believe that increased oversight and enforcement efforts 
related to water quality are essential. The conferees recognize 
that Section 106 grants are the primary tool for funding State 
water quality and enforcement programs and have agreed to 
provide the requested funding increase of $10,769,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The Agency is directed to 
ensure that the increased funds are used to strengthen State 
permitting and enforcement efforts and to ensure that these 
funds supplement and expand, not supplant, base State 
enforcement program resources. Consistent with recommendations 
from both the House and the Senate, the conference agreement 
does not include language proposed by the President regarding 
water quality monitoring. The conferees direct the Agency to 
follow the historic allocation criteria between State capacity-
building and national surveys.
      Bill Language.--Language is included within the STAG 
account, instead of in the Administrative Provisions section as 
proposed by the House, to address green infrastructure projects 
funded from the State Revolving Funds. The language, including 
technical modifications, clarifies that the type of projects 
eligible for the 20 percent green infrastructure set-aside 
includes environmentally innovative activities as proposed by 
the Senate. Language is included to provide for additional 
subsidies from the State Revolving Funds as proposed by the 
House in the Administrative Provisions section.
      Language is included, as proposed by the Senate, to 
provide direction on the allocation of funds to address 
drinking water and waste water infrastructure needs of Alaska 
Native villages, including that not less than 25 percent of 
those funds be used for projects in regional hub communities.
      The conferees have included language as proposed by the 
House to increase the set-asides for Tribes and territories 
from the State Revolving Funds instead of language proposed by 
the Senate.
      As noted below, the conferees have modified language, as 
proposed by the Senate, making technical corrections to prior 
year infrastructure grants. These project corrections are now 
incorporated into law by inclusion in the table above.
      Technical Corrections to Prior Year STAG Infrastructure 
Grants.--As proposed by the Senate, technical corrections to 
prior-year infrastructure grants are as follows:
      AL--Item number 9 in House Report 107-272 for the 
Southeast Alabama Regional Water Authority for a water facility

accompany P.L. 111-8 for the City of Lake Norden for wastewater 
infrastructure improvements shall be made available to the City 
of Lake Norden for drinking water infrastructure improvements.
      Hancock, County, MS State Revolving Fund Loans.--The 
agreement includes a general provision that directs EPA to 
extend loan repayment periods for the Hancock County, MS Water 
and Sewer District and the Hancock Utility authority by one 
year in order to allow the community to explore all possible 
remedies to avoid defaulting on loans. The conferees see this 
as an extraordinary action based upon the devastating effect of 
Hurricane Katrina on Hancock County. Due to the population loss 
and economic impact caused by Hurricane Katrina, the community 
has sought, and been granted, this one year extension.

       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS, ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

              (INCLUDING TRANSFER AND RESCISSION OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement includes language proposed by 
the House to extend until 2015 authority provided in P.L. 109-
54 (as amended by Title II of Division E of Public Law 111-8) 
which provides special hiring authority for the Agency's Office 
of Research and Development. The conferees believe that it is 
in the public's best interest to have elite scientists at the 
EPA addressing human health-related issues, and that they 
should be compensated at or near market rates. To that end, for 
the past five years the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations have been supportive of extending to the EPA on 
a pilot basis the authorities originally granted the Department 
of Health and Human Services under Title 42 U.S.C. Sec. 209. 
The conference agreement extends this authority for another 
five years, through FY 2015. The conferees are aware that the 
National Academy of Sciences is in the process of assessing and 
evaluating the EPA's use of Title 42 authority, and the 
conferees look forward to its report. Further, the conferees 
urge the EPA to work with the appropriate authorizing 
committees to seek more permanent authorization. The conferees 
understand that the EPA has made 11 Title 42 appointments to 
date utilizing Sections 209(g) and 209(h) authorities, but has 
not utilized Section 209(f) authority. The conferees direct the 
EPA to notify the Appropriations and Authorizing Committees 
prior to announcing any position to be filled utilizing Section 
209(f) authority.
      Modified language is included to authorize the 
Administrator to transfer up to $475,000,000 of funds 
appropriated for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. 
Language authorizing a green infrastructure set-aside from the 
State Revolving Funds has been included in the STAG account as 
proposed by the Senate instead of in the Administrative 
Provisions section as proposed by the House. Language proposed 
by the House authorizing subsidized assistance from the State 
Revolving Funds has been included in the STAG account. The 
conference agreement modifies language proposed by the House to 
provide specific wage rate requirements for the Clean Water and 
Drinking Water State Revolving Funds.
      Rescission.--The conference agreement modifies rescission 
language proposed by the House and the Senate and rescinds 
$40,000,000 from the STAG and Superfund accounts. Based on 
information provided by the Agency, the conferees have expanded 
the scope of the rescission to include the Superfund account. 
For the STAG component of the rescission, the conferees direct 
the Agency to use unobligated balances from prior year 
categorical and other grant programs. Unlike in previous years, 
the Agency is not to include as part of the rescission 
unobligated balances from prior year special project 
infrastructure grants. The conferees are concerned about the 
method by which the Agency has selected infrastructure grants 
as eligible for rescission and therefore will not allow the use 
of these types of funds for this specific rescission. The 
conferees further direct the Agency to report within 90 days of 
enactment of this Act the status of unobligated balances from 
the Title II Construction Grants program and a proposed plan to 
resolve legal and administrative impasses to either the use of 
these funds or their rescission.
      In light of the significant amount of unliquidated 
obligations remaining on prior year grants, the conferees 
direct the Agency to improve procedures to ensure that grant 
funds are expended in a timely manner. In addition, the 
conferees are very concerned about the quality of information 
and analysis provided by the Office of the Inspector General 
(OIG) concerning the Agency's unliquidated obligation balances. 
Any future submissions from the OIG on this topic should, at a 
minimum, identify the appropriation account for each program 
with unliquidated obligations. In addition, the OIG should not 
submit any estimates unless and until it has met with the 
Agency to review each obligation and determine together whether 
or not it is actually available for rescission. Only after 
consultation with and agreement from the Agency, should the OIG 
report to Congress as available for rescission any funds 
attached to grants with active performance periods.
      Black Carbon Study.--The conferees have included a 
modified version of the language proposed by the Senate 
requiring the Agency to conduct a study on black carbon 
emissions and have provided additional direction under the 
Science and Technology account.

                      TITLE III--RELATED AGENCIES

The cooperative program includes the $2,000,000 increase for 
emerald ash borer urban restoration as recommended by the House 
as well as the Senate proposed $750,000 increase for gypsy moth 
activities. The conferees encourage the Service to pursue 
additional emerald ash borer response activities such as those 
discussed by the Senate to help the State of Wisconsin, within 
the normal program.
      As detailed below, the conference agreement also allows

                         NATIONAL FOREST SYSTEM

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $1,551,339,000 for the 
National Forest System instead of $1,564,801,000 as proposed by 
the House and $1,552,429,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
detailed allocation of funding by activity for this account is

         ACQUISITION OF LANDS FOR NATIONAL FORESTS SPECIAL ACTS

      The conference agreement includes $1,050,000 as requested 
and as proposed by both the House and the Senate for 
Acquisition of Lands for National Forests Special Acts.

            ACQUISITION OF LANDS TO COMPLETE LAND EXCHANGES

      The conference agreement includes $250,000 as requested 
and as proposed by both the House and the Senate for 
Acquisition of Lands to Complete Land Exchanges.

                         RANGE BETTERMENT FUND

      The conference agreement includes $3,600,000 as requested 
and as proposed by both the House and the Senate for the Range 
Betterment Fund.

    GIFTS, DONATIONS AND BEQUESTS FOR FOREST AND RANGELAND RESEARCH

      The conference agreement includes $50,000 as requested 
and as proposed by both the House and the Senate for Gifts, 
Donations and Bequests for Forest and Rangeland Research.

        MANAGEMENT OF NATIONAL FOREST LANDS FOR SUBSISTENCE USES

      The conference agreement includes $2,582,000 as requested 
and as proposed by both the House and the Senate for Management 
of National Forest Lands for Subsistence Uses.

                        WILDLAND FIRE MANAGEMENT

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $2,178,737,000 for 
Forest Service Wildland Fire Management instead of 
$2,370,288,000 as proposed by the House and $1,817,637,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement also includes 
an additional $413,000,000 for the new Forest Service FLAME 
Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund established in the FLAME Act 
of 2009 (Title V of this Act). The Senate had included 
$282,000,000 for a contingency reserve fund within Wildland 
Fire Management, whereas the House had included $282,000,000 in 
a separate Wildland Fire Suppression Contingency Reserve 
account, as requested. The Senate recommendation also included 
in section 431 an additional $834,000,000 for the inter-
departmental FLAME Fund and an additional $10,000,000 in a 
separate Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Fund.
      The detailed allocation of funding by activity for the 
wildfire accounts is included in the table at the end of the 
statement. The conferees note that the funding provided 
includes the use of $75,000,000 in prior year funds because the 
suppression activity had large, non-emergency carry-over 
balances from fiscal year 2009. In addition to the directions 
provided in the House and Senate committee reports, the 
conference agreement also provides the following directions:
      Wildfire Preparedness.--The conference agreement provides 
$675,000,000 as requested for preparedness but not the funds 
recommended by the House and the Senate for fixed costs or 
firefighter retention. The conferees have retained direction 
directing the Secretary of Agriculture, after notifying the 
House and Senate Appropriations Committees, to adjust 
allocations between preparedness and suppression funds to 
ensure that readiness needs are fully funded for this fiscal 
year. However, the conferees are concerned that these shifts of 
aviation, personnel and overhead costs to the suppression 
appropriation have continued to grow exponentially and cloaked 
the true cost of the agency's readiness needs. The conferees 
believe an analysis of base preparedness requirements must be 
an essential element of the firefighting budget reforms 
proposed in Title V and has provided additional direction to 
that effect within the description of that title. Further, the 
conferees note that firefighter retention initiatives for 
fiscal year 2010 will be fully funded by prior-year 
appropriations as appropriate to maintain experienced and 
qualified staffing.
      The conferees reiterate the House and Senate direction 
concerning readiness required for public safety and the 
requirement that the Forest Service provide a copy of its 
report on Federal air tanker needs, including an estimate of 
replacement costs, within 30 days of enactment of this Act.
      Wildfire Suppression Operations.--The conference 
agreement includes $997,505,000 for wildland fire suppression 
instead of $1,128,505,000 as proposed by the House and 
$369,505,000 as proposed by the Senate. As noted above, the 
Senate had also included $834,000,000 in section 431 for an 
inter-departmental FLAME fund. The conferees note the use of 
$75,000,000 in prior-year funding. An additional $413,000,000 
for suppression activities is provided in the new Forest 
Service FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund. The conferees 
note that the Department of the Interior wildland fire 
suppression accounts are provided $444,797,000, including 
$61,000,000 in the new Department of the Interior FLAME 
Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund. Thus, the sum for wildfire 
suppression for both Departments, including both the 
suppression and the FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund 
accounts is $1,855,302,000. This total is equal to the request 
for all wildfire suppression accounts and is $526,164,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 funding level. This is the largest non-
emergency funding increase ever provided for wildfire 
suppression.
      The conferees note that additional direction concerning 
the use of the new Forest Service and Interior Department FLAME 
Wildfire Suppression Reserve Funds is included in Title V 
accompanying the FLAME Act of 2009. In particular, the 
conferees note that direction has been provided to the Service 
in Title V relating to the formulation of future fire 
suppression budget estimates for Wildland Fire Management and 
FLAME Fund appropriations. The use of the FLAME funds is 
entirely consistent with the risk-informed wildfire suppression 
reforms discussed in the budget request, including expanded use 
of the Wildland Fire Decision Support System, which will result 
in strengthened oversight and accountability of suppression 
spending.
      The conferees reiterate that both the Interior Department 
and the Forest Service should ensure that cost containment is 
an important priority when suppressing wildland fires. Both 
Departments must examine and report promptly to the Congress 
and on agency websites, using independent panels on each and 
every individual wildfire incident which results in suppression 
expenses greater than $10,000,000.
      The conferees note that bill language included in the 
Administrative Provisions provides authority for the Forest 
Service to transfer non-wildfire funds for emergency wildfire 
suppression once all the funds in this account and the new 
FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund will be exhausted 
within 30 days.
      Hazardous Fuels Reduction.--The conference agreement 
provides $350,285,000 for hazardous fuels reduction activities 
at the Forest Service instead of $378,086,000 as proposed by 
the House and $340,285,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
agreement provides a $25,000,000 increase for this program; the 
Service is directed to allocate this increase to areas that 
face the highest risk of catastrophic wildfire based on fuel 
loads and values at risk. The conference agreement also 
includes $10,000,000 for fuels reduction and restoration 
activities authorized by the Collaborative Forest Landscape 
Restoration Act (P.L. 111-11) within this account instead of 
within a separate appropriations account as proposed by the 
Senate. The conferees expect the Service to follow direction 
included in the Senate report regarding the submission of 
forest landscape projects funded through this new program no 
later than March 1, 2010. The agreement does not include the 
general program increase recommended by the House. The 
agreement includes the House recommendation of $5,000,000 for 
certain biomass grants as was requested.
      Rehabilitation.--The conference agreement includes the 
$100,000 increase proposed by the House for the San Bernardino, 
CA, urban youth conservation corps. The conferees note that 
there have been extreme wildfires in recent years, which will 
require extensive rehabilitation and restoration activities. 
The Service is urged to provide a detailed assessment of future 
needs and accomplishments in the next budget request.
      Forest Health Management.--The conference agreement 
includes general program increases above the fiscal year 2009 
level of $3,500,000 for Federal lands forest health management 
and $1,500,000 for cooperative lands forest health management.
      State Fire Assistance.--The conference agreement includes 
a general program increase of $15,000,000. This will help the 
States accomplish national fire plan activities including 
hazardous fuels reduction and implementation of community 
wildfire protection plans. The agreement also includes the 
following increases above the request as proposed by the 
Senate: $4,000,000 for the South Lake Tahoe Public Utility 
District to increase the budget request for the Lake Tahoe 
Community Fire Protection Project to fund water system 
improvements by local utility districts to enhance firefighting 
capability, for a total of $5,000,000; $2,000,000 for fire risk 
reduction activities by California Fire Safe Council chapters, 
including activities in the Lake Tahoe Basin, for a total of 
$5,000,000; and $250,000 for the City of Reno, NV to fund 
firefighting equipment for the wildland-urban interface. The 
conferees have agreed that a 25 percent local match shall be 
required for Fire Safe Council grants.
      Bill Language.--The conference agreement modifies the 
language in the budget request and House recommendation 
concerning procurements and cooperative agreements for 
hazardous fuels and associated monitoring activities so it is 
limited to $15,000,000. The conference agreement includes 
Senate-proposed language: (1) allowing up to $15,000,000 in 
hazardous fuels funding to be transferred to the National 
Forest System account at the sole discretion of the Forest 
Service Chief 30 days after notifying the Committees on 
Appropriations; and (2) concerning the use of funds on adjacent 
non-Federal lands and the availability of funds to implement 
the Community Forest Restoration Act. As previously noted, 
modified language is also included that allows $10,000,000 of 
funds made available for hazardous fuels reduction to be 
deposited in the Collaborative Forest Restoration Fund. Bill 
language is included that directs the Forest Service to make no 
less than $75,000,000 in prior year non-emergency wildfire 
suppression funds available for wildfire suppression purposes 
in addition to amounts otherwise provided. The agreement 
includes the House proposed language allowing up to $50,000,000 
to be transferred between the Interior Department and the 
Forest Service when such transfers would facilitate and 
expedite jointly funded wildland fire management programs and 
projects.
      The conference agreement does not include the Wildland 
Fire Contingency Reserve Fund, which was in the request and the 
House recommendation. Instead, funds are provided for the FLAME 
Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund, as described below.

                FLAME WILDFIRE SUPPRESSION RESERVE FUND

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $413,000,000 for the 
new Forest Service FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund 
established in the FLAME Act of 2009 (Title V of this Act). The 
Senate had included $282,000,000 within the Wildland Fire 
Management account for a suppression reserve, whereas the House 
had included, as requested, $282,000,000 for a separate 
Wildland Fire Suppression Contingency Reserve Fund. Further 
direction on the use of this new account is provided in Title 
V. The conferees note that funding provided this year as a 
beginning allocation is equal to the actual expenditures during 
fiscal year 2009 by the Forest Service on large wildfire 
suppression events, as defined by the FLAME Act of 2009 (Title 
V of this Act). A similar account in the Department of the 
Interior is also provided an additional $61,000,000. The 
conferees have established these funding levels to give the 
Department of the Interior and the Forest Service some degree 
of funding flexibility as they develop appropriate procedures 
and infrastructure for the FLAME Funds. However, these levels 
are not intended to represent a final method for calculating 
FLAME Fund budget requests. Instead, as provided in Title V, 
the conferees expect the agencies to develop new methods for 
formulating fire suppression funding estimates for the Wildland 
Fire Management and FLAME Fund appropriations accounts as part 
of their fiscal year 2011 budget request.
      The conferees appreciate the Administration's recognition 
that budgeting for wildfire suppression using the 10-year 
rolling average has failed to keep pace with actual funding 
requirements and has led to significant disruption as agencies 
borrow from non-fire program accounts when funds are exhausted. 
The conferees intend that, for fiscal year 2010 and beyond, 
amounts provided through the FLAME Fund, together with amounts 
provided through the Wildland Fire Management account, should 
fully fund anticipated wildland fire suppression requirements 
and prevent future borrowing from non-fire programs.

               ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS, FOREST SERVICE

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement includes administrative 
provisions similar to previous years. This includes limiting 
transfers to the USDA for reimbursable charges to the requested 
amount and allowing up to $55,000,000 to be assessed for fire, 
administrative and other facilities maintenance. The House 
recommended language continuing a provision concerning the use 
of funds for certain Puerto Rico school expenses is included. 
The conference agreement provides $3,000,000 for the National 
Forest Foundation and $3,000,000 for the National Fish and 
Wildlife Foundation; it is acceptable for these foundations to 
make grants to Federal recipients, including Forest Service 
offices. As recommended by the House, the Government 
Accountability Office should conduct an independent analysis of 
centralized business services of the Forest Service, including 
a comprehensive review of the purchase card program.
      The bill language concerning transfers of funds for 
certain emergency wildfire suppression needs has been modified 
from the versions recommended by either the House or the Senate 
to be consistent with the FLAME Act of 2009. Non-wildfire 
suppression funds may not be transferred unless all other 
funds, including both those in the Wildland Fire Management 
account and the FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund, will 
be fully exhausted within 30 days. The Service should take its 
first fire suppression transfers from unobligated balances, if 
available, from the Knutson-Vandenberg Trust Fund and other 
permanent and trust fund accounts, and use those balances, as 
appropriate, before transferring funds from discretionary 
accounts.

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

                         Indian Health Service

                         INDIAN HEALTH SERVICES

      The conference agreement provides $3,657,618,000 for 
Indian Health Services as proposed by the House, instead of 
$3,639,868,000 as proposed by the Senate. The detailed 
allocation of funding by program area and activity for this 
account is included in the table at the end of the statement. 
The conference agreement also includes the following 
directions:
      Domestic Violence Prevention.--The conference agreement 
provides a total of $10,000,000 as proposed by the House for 
domestic violence and sexual assault prevention and treatment, 
instead of $7,500,000 as proposed by the Senate. From within 
those funds, the Indian Health Service (IHS) is directed to 
implement a nationally coordinated Sexual Assault Forensic 
Examiner/Sexual Assault Response Team (SAFE/SART) program to be 
used to fund IHS and Tribally managed hospitals, clinics and/or 
other facilities that provide 24/7 emergency care through 
competitive grants, 638 contracts and/or program awards to 
build local SAFE and SART capacity. In addition, the Service is 
directed to expand its national domestic violence grant program 
through competitive grants, 638 contracts and/or program awards 
to address the growing need for these services.
      As the need for domestic violence programs increases, so 
do the number of cases that need to be prosecuted. However, 
there have been reports that the Department of Health and Human 
Services policy on witness subpoenas impedes the ability of IHS 
personnel to present evidence or testimony in these cases. This 
can cause the cases to be dropped and the perpetrators to 
potentially walk free. This scenario is simply unacceptable. 
Therefore, the Department and the Service are directed to 
reevaluate and revise this policy to ensure that IHS personnel 
are able to testify and present evidence in these cases and to 
report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on 
their revised policy within 90 days of enactment of this Act.
      Dental Health.--The conference agreement provides 
$152,634,000 for dental health programs as proposed by the 
House, instead of $151,384,000 as proposed by the Senate. Of 
those funds, $1,000,000 is for the Headquarters Division of 
Oral Health to expand the dental residency program and $250,000 
is to expand the summer extern program. In addition, the 
Service is directed to further its dental health efforts by 
utilizing a portion of the health information technology funds 
to refine and expedite the deployment schedule of the 
electronic dental record system.
      Urban Indian Health Program.--The conference agreement 
provides $43,139,000 as proposed by the House for urban health 
programs, instead of $38,139,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
increase is provided to assist the Service in addressing 
shortfalls within this program that have accumulated over the 
last several years. Bill language from previous years has not 
been included because the conferees are satisfied that the 
Administration does not intend to eliminate this program.

                        INDIAN HEALTH FACILITIES

      The conference agreement provides $394,757,000 for Indian 
Health Facilities as proposed by both the House and the Senate. 
The detailed allocation of funding by program area and activity 
for this account is included in the table at the end of the 
statement. The conference agreement also includes the following 
directions:
      The conferees remain concerned about the systemic 
weaknesses in the IHS inventory management system, as 
identified by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). A 
recently released follow-up investigation by the GAO suggests 
these weaknesses persist. The conferees expect the Service to 
ensure that the provision of health care services is not 
adversely affected by these problems and demonstrate that it is 
working aggressively to strengthen administration and 
accountability. The Service is directed to evaluate its 
inventory management system, identify and correct any 
deficiencies, and provide a detailed report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on its efforts within 60 
days of enactment of this Act.
      The conferees are concerned about the persistent backlog 
of Indian Health Service health facilities construction 
projects serving American Indians and Alaska Natives. The 
conferees believe that the joint venture program provides a 
cost-effective means to address this backlog and to increase 
access to health care services for American Indians and Alaska 
Natives. The conferees are aware that IHS is currently 
reviewing competitive applications from Tribes and Tribal 
organizations to participate in the 2010 joint venture program 
and encourage the Service to move forward with the process in 
an expeditious manner.

                     National Institutes of Health

          National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences

      The conference agreement provides $79,212,000 for the 
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences as 
requested and as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

            Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry

            TOXIC SUBSTANCES AND ENVIRONMENTAL PUBLIC HEALTH

      The conference agreement provides $76,792,000 for the 
Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry as requested 
and as proposed by both the House and the Senate. The conferees 
continue to be concerned with the CDC's administrative costs. 
The conferees are aware that the CDC plans to commission a 
study on administrative costs. The conferees direct the ATSDR 
to submit the results of that study, as soon as it becomes 
available. If necessary, the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations may consider a cap on administration expenses.
      Bill Language.--The conference agreement includes 
language that provides up to $1,000 per eligible employee of 
the ATSDR for Individual Learning Accounts as proposed by the 
House.

                         OTHER RELATED AGENCIES

                   Executive Office of the President

  COUNCIL ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY AND OFFICE OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

      The conference agreement provides $3,159,000 for the 
Council on Environmental Quality and Office of Environmental 
Quality as requested and as proposed by both the House and the 
Senate. The conference agreement also includes the following 
directions:
      Appalachian Surface Coal Mining Interagency Plan.--The 
conferees expect the Council on Environmental Quality to abide 
by the language in Senate Report 111-38 referencing the 
Administration's Interagency Action Plan to ``diversify and 
strengthen the Appalachian regional economy.'' The conferees 
direct the Council, in coordination with the Appalachian 
Regional Commission, to provide a detailed report no later than 
March 31, 2010, on how the Administration intends to achieve 
its goals.

             Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conference agreement provides $11,147,000 for the 
Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board instead of 
$10,547,000 as proposed by the House and $11,195,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement includes 
language that: limits the Board to not more than three career 
SES positions; directs that EPA's Inspector General serve as 
the Board's Inspector General; and instructs the Board to 
utilize the personnel in EPA's Office of Inspector General. The 
conferees have not included language to transfer funds from the 
Board's account to the EPA OIG account, as proposed by the 
House. The Inspector General has confirmed that he has 
sufficient funds in fiscal year 2010 to perform this function. 
The conference agreement also includes the following specific 
funding levels and directions:
      Methyl isocyanate report.--The conference agreement 
includes bill language that designates $600,000 for a National 
Academy of Sciences report on the use and storage of methyl 
isocyanate and alternatives at the Bayer CropScience facility 
in Institute, WV.

              Office of Navajo and Hopi Indian Relocation

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

Office of Navajo and Hopi Indian Relocation, Salaries and 
Expenses as requested and proposed by both the House and the 
Senate.

    Institute of American Indian and Alaska Native Culture and Arts 
                              Development

                        PAYMENT TO THE INSTITUTE

      The conference agreement provides $8,300,000 for the 
Institute of American Indian and Alaska Native Culture and Arts 
Development as requested and proposed by both the House and the 
Senate.

                        Smithsonian Institution

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conference agreement includes $636,161,000 for the 
Salaries and Expenses account of the Smithsonian Institution, 
instead of $634,161,000 as requested and as proposed by both 
the House and the Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by 
program area and activity is included in the table at the end 
of this section of the statement. The increase above the 
request is designated for the museum-wide collections care 
initiative to assist the Institution in strengthening its 
efforts to preserve priceless historical collections. The 
conference agreement includes bill language proposed by the 
House concerning two-year funding availability. Language is 
also included in the bill as proposed by the Senate stipulating 
that from within the funds provided, $250,000 will be used to 
carry out activities under the Civil Rights History Project Act 
of 2009.
      The conferees note that some Smithsonian Institution 
collections, such as the priceless military uniform collection 
at the National Museum of American History, may be stored in 
unsatisfactory conditions. The conferees urge the Smithsonian 
to take the necessary steps to preserve these irreplaceable 
historical collections and ensure that preservation of its 
collections is made a high priority.

                           FACILITIES CAPITAL

      The conference agreement includes $125,000,000 as 
requested and as proposed by the Senate instead of $140,000,000 
as proposed by the House for the Facilities Capital account.

                              LEGACY FUND

                    (INCLUDING RESCISSION OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement includes a net increase of 
$234,000 as proposed by the Senate for the Legacy Fund instead 
of no appropriation as proposed by the House. The conference 
agreement includes the Senate proposal to rescind $29,766,000 
in prior year balances in this account and appropriate 
$30,000,000 for revitalization of the Arts and Industries 
building on the National Mall, provided the funds are matched 
on a 1:1 basis with private contributions.
      The conference agreement does not include the House 
recommended administrative provision, which allowed the fiscal 
year 2008 Legacy Fund appropriation to be transferred into the 
Facilities Capital account, to be used under the terms and 
conditions of that account.

                        National Gallery of Art

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conference agreement provides $110,746,000 for the 
Salaries and Expenses account of the National Gallery of Art as 
proposed by both the House and the Senate. Bill language is 
included which allows up to $3,386,000 for the Special 
Exhibition Program, as proposed by both the House and the 
Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by activity for this 
account is included in the table at the end of this section of 
the statement.

            REPAIR, RESTORATION AND RENOVATION OF BUILDINGS

      The conference agreement provides $56,259,000 for the 
Repair, Restoration and Renovation account as proposed by the 
House instead of $54,499,000 as proposed by the Senate. Bill 
language is included which provides $40,000,000 for the repair 
of the East Building exterior marble facade, as proposed by the 
House. The conferees have provided this significant increase in 
light of the considerable public safety hazard posed by the 
deterioration of the facade. In addition, the agreement 
includes bill language as proposed by the Senate to allow for a 
single contract for the full scope of this project.

             John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

                       OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE

      The conference agreement provides $23,000,000 for the 
Operations and Maintenance account instead of $25,000,000 
proposed by the House and $22,500,000 proposed by the Senate. 
Bill language has been included as proposed by the House 
directing $500,000 toward the Center's efforts to assist arts 
organizations nationwide with tools to manage the challenges 
posed by the economy. Such assistance should address issues 
including board governance, budgeting, marketing, and 
technology. The Kennedy Center is directed to submit a spending 
plan for these funds no later than 30 days after enactment of 
this Act.

                     CAPITAL REPAIR AND RESTORATION

      The conference agreement provides $17,447,000 for the 
Capital Repair and Restoration account as proposed by both the 
House and the Senate.

            Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conference agreement provides $12,225,000 for the 
Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars as proposed by 
the House instead of $10,225,000 as proposed in the request and 
by the Senate. Within the overall increase, $650,000 is 
provided for the Kissinger Institute on China and the United 
States, which was established by the Center last year, and 
other related Asia programs. While the conferees understand 
that the Institute was originally to be supported solely with 
private contributions, the downturn in the economy has slowed 
the response to the Center's initial fundraising efforts. This 
program support will allow the Institute to move forward with 
its first initiatives at a critical stage in its development. 
An additional amount of $600,000 is provided for necessary 
administrative costs that were not covered in the request. 
Language has been included in the bill, as proposed by the 
House, to make the Center's appropriation available for two 
years in order to accommodate any issues that may arise because 
of discrepancies between the obligation of grant monies and the 
fiscal year calendar.

             National Foundation on the Arts and Humanities

                    National Endowment for the Arts

                       GRANTS AND ADMINISTRATION

      The conference agreement provides $167,500,000 for the 
National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) instead of $170,000,000 
as proposed by the House and $161,315,000 as requested and 
proposed by the Senate. The detailed allocation of funding by 
program area for this account is included in the table at the 
end of the statement.
      The conferees commend the National Endowment for the Arts 
for promoting literacy and reading in the United States through 
the highly acclaimed Big Read program. The Big Read engages 
communities of all sizes and Americans of all ages by 
celebrating the literary works of American writers. Since 2005, 
the NEA has awarded grants--leveraged with millions of private 
sector dollars--in every State and virtually every 
Congressional district in the United States. The NEA study, 
Reading on the Rise, released last year, documents a definitive 
increase in the number of American adults who read with the 
biggest increase in young adults aged 18-24. This new growth 
reverses two decades of downward trends cited in previous NEA 
reports. The conferees remain committed to the Big Read program 
and direct the NEA to report to the House and Senate Committees 
on Appropriations, no later than 60 days after enactment of 
this Act, with a detailed funding plan for the continuation of 
this popular and successful program.
      Bill Language.--The conference agreement includes three 
provisions in Title IV, General Provisions, which relate to the 
NEA. The first, Section 417, concurs with the administration's 
request to reinstate four positions on the National Council on 
the Arts that were eliminated in 1996. This expansion will 
enable the National Endowment to receive counsel and advice 
from a more diverse body that represents a broader array of 
arts disciplines and fields.
      Sections 438 and 439 include the full text of language 
regarding program priorities and grant guidelines, which in 
recent years has been incorporated by reference to sections 309 
and 311 of P.L. 108-447. These provisions are in addition to 
the instructions provided under the agency's most recent 
authorization regarding the awarding of grants. The conferees 
have taken this step in light of recent controversies in order 
to restate for the Endowment and the general public the 
guidelines within which the agency is expected to conduct its 
work and distribute taxpayer dollars in support of the arts.
      Finally, the conferees note that section 402 of Title IV, 
General Provisions, prohibits any agency, including the NEA, 
from any activity, publication or distribution of literature 
that ``in any way (emphasis added) tends to promote public 
support or opposition to any legislative proposal on which 
Congressional action is not complete other than to communicate 
to Members of Congress. . . .'' The conferees urge the NEA to 
take immediate steps to ensure that all employees are aware of 
these provisions when conducting any activities funded by this 
appropriation.

                 National Endowment for the Humanities

                       GRANTS AND ADMINISTRATION

      The conference agreement provides $167,500,000 for the 
National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) instead of 
$170,000,000 as proposed by the House and $161,315,000 as 
requested and proposed by the Senate. The conferees do not 
agree with the proposal to fund the National Capital Arts and 
Cultural Affairs grant program through the NEH. Instead, the 
conferees agree to continue administering the National Capital 
Arts and Cultural Affairs grant program through the Commission 
of Fine Arts as proposed by both the House and Senate. The 
detailed allocation of funding by program area for this account 
is included in the table at the end of this section of the 
statement.

                        Commission of Fine Arts

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conference agreement provides $2,294,000 for the 
Commission of Fine Arts, as requested and proposed by both the 
House and the Senate.

               National Capital Arts and Cultural Affairs

      The conference agreement provides $9,500,000 for the 
National Capital Arts and Cultural Affairs grant program as 
proposed by the Senate instead of $10,000,000 as proposed by 
the House. Language is included in the bill in title IV, 
General Provisions, to adjust the authorized funding level for 
this program to $10,000,000 and increase the maximum allowable 
grant level to $650,000 per recipient per year in agreement 
with the House proposal. The Senate bill did not contain this 
provision.

               Advisory Council on Historic Preservation

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conference agreement provides $5,908,000 for the 
Advisory Council on Historic Preservation as requested and as 
proposed by both the House and the Senate.

                  National Capital Planning Commission

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conference agreement provides $8,507,000 for the 
National Capital Planning Commission, as requested and proposed 
by both the House and the Senate.

                United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

                       HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM

      The conference agreement provides $49,122,000 for the 
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum as proposed by the 
Senate, instead of $48,551,000 as requested and as proposed by 
the House. The increase above the request is provided to 
sustain the additional security measures that were implemented 
by the Museum earlier this year immediately following the 
tragic shooting of an employee there. The conferees understand 
that further steps may be taken upon completion of a security 
review by the Department of Homeland Security based on the 
findings contained therein.

                             Presidio Trust

                          PRESIDIO TRUST FUND

      The conference agreement provides $23,200,000 for the 
Presidio Trust Fund as proposed by the House, instead of 
$17,230,000 as proposed by the Senate.

                Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conference agreement provides $3,000,000 for the 
Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission for salaries and 
expenses as proposed by the Senate, instead of $2,000,000 as 
proposed by the House.

                          CAPITAL CONSTRUCTION

      The conference agreement provides $16,000,000 for the 
Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission for capital 
construction as proposed by the Senate, instead of $10,000,000 
as proposed by the House.

part of the joint explanatory statement for the Environmental 
Programs and Management account.

      The conferees have not agreed to statutory language 
proposed by the Senate in its section 424 regarding limitations 
on the use of certain funds made available through the American 
Recovery and Reinvestment Act (P.L. 111-5) to the Forest 
Service. The conferees note that the Service was given legal 
authority under the Recovery Act to fund $250,000,000 of 
hazardous fuels reduction, forest health and ecosystem 
restoration projects, including urban forestry projects, using 
all authorities available to the Service through the State and 
Private Forestry appropriation. However, the conferees believe 
that greater priority should have been given to projects that 
both create jobs and reduce fire risk. The conferees note that 
there appears to be an inadequate relationship between the 
geographical allocation of project funding by the Forest 
Service and the need for jobs to reduce unemployment. Further, 
the conferees remain troubled by the lack of transparency and 
the lack of communication from the Service and the Department 
of Agriculture related to the project selection process. The 
Service is directed to provide to the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees, within 30 days of enactment of this 
Act, a comprehensive list of all projects selected for Recovery 
Act funding; a detailed description, including proposed 
accomplishments, for each project; and a detailed description 
of criteria used to select each project. Finally, the conferees 
direct that no additional funds from the Recovery Act be 
expended on urban and community forestry projects unless 
previously announced by the Secretary, and that in the future, 
any additional projects will be devoted to activities that 
directly reduce fire hazards on public and private lands.

  TITLE V--FEDERAL LAND ASSISTANCE, MANAGEMENT AND ENHANCEMENT ACT OF 
                        2009 (FLAME ACT OF 2009)

      Title V of the conference agreement includes the FLAME 
Act of 2009. This Act is very similar to the FLAME Act included 
in sections 431 and 432 in the Senate recommended bill and H.R. 
1404, which passed the House of Representatives on March 26, 
2009. The conference agreement has strengthened the workability 
and usefulness of the previous FLAME Acts while retaining most 
major provisions. The main change is the creation of FLAME 
Wildfire Suppression Reserve Funds in both the Forest Service 
and the Department of the Interior, and the appropriation of 
funds for these funds under normal appropriation accounts 
within title I and title III. These changes also make the FLAME 
Act consistent with other wildfire suppression reforms 
recommended in the Administration budget request. This includes 
risk-informed wildfire suppression reforms discussed in the 
budget request, and expanded use of the Wildland Fire Decision 
Support System, which will result in strengthened oversight and 
accountability of suppression spending.
      The conferees expect the budget reforms provided through 
this title, together with changes to the agencies' 
appropriations accounts in titles I and III, will lead to 
improved transparency regarding the true costs of fire 
preparedness and suppression activities. The conferees expect 
these budget reforms to be accompanied by a commitment from the 
Administration that fire readiness and suppression activities 
will not be funded at the expense of other programs, and that 
any non-fire program transfers will be accounted for and 
reported to the appropriate Congressional committees in a 
transparent manner and will be promptly repaid.
      Section 501. Short Title.--Section 501 consists of the 
short title of the Act, the Federal Land Assistance, Management 
and Enhancement Act of 2009 or, for short, the FLAME Act of 
2009.
      Section 502. FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Funds.--
Section 502 includes the major portions of the FLAME Act of 
2009.
      The FLAME Act of 2009 includes a clear purpose statement: 
the FLAME Funds shall be available to cover the costs of large 
or complex wildfire events and as a reserve when amounts 
provided for wildfire suppression and Federal emergency 
response in the Wildland Fire Management appropriation accounts 
are exhausted (section 502(c)).
      The Department of the Interior and the Forest Service 
each are authorized to have their own account, but there are 
the same requirements for the two accounts (section 502(b)). 
The FLAME reserve accounts are transfer accounts, from which 
each Secretary may transfer funds into their respective 
Wildland Fire Management account for wildfire suppression 
activities, if certain conditions are met. These conditions 
require a Secretarial declaration and are nearly the same as 
required in the previous Senate and House FLAME acts: either 
the wildfire event is large or complex, or the respective 
wildland fire suppression account will be exhausted within 30 
days (section 502(e)).
      The conferees intend that amounts provided through the 
FLAME Fund, together with amounts provided through the Wildland 
Fire Management appropriations account, should fully fund 
anticipated wildland fire suppression requirements in advance 
of fire season and prevent future borrowing from non-fire 
programs. To satisfy this requirement, the conferees direct the 
Secretaries to develop new methods for formulating fire 
suppression funding estimates for the Wildland Fire Management 
and FLAME Fund appropriations accounts as part of their fiscal 
year 2011 budget request. In formulating these estimates, the 
conferees expect the Secretaries to consider data regarding 
actual prior-year fire suppression expenditures, predictive 
modeling, and any other criteria that they deem appropriate, 
consistent with the direction provided in this title. Further, 
as noted previously, the conferees expect the Service to 
analyze current readiness requirements and to submit a 
realigned preparedness budget in fiscal year 2011 that 
accurately reflects anticipated readiness costs instead of 
relying on large-scale shifts to the suppression appropriation.
      In addition, each Secretary is given authority to 
transfer up to $100,000,000 per fiscal year to the other 
department's FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund if one 
department has much greater expenses than the other (section 
502(d)(5)). A Congressional intent statement indicates that the 
President should request funding for the FLAME funds so that 
large or complex wildfire event activities are funded 
adequately. The Act includes Sense of Congress statements that: 
(1) future FLAME appropriations in excess of funds needed for 
large or complex fires should be designated as amounts 
necessary to meet emergency needs (section 502(d)(2)(C)(i)); 
and (2) each Secretary should make a supplemental budget 
request for wildfire suppression if their FLAME fund will be 
exhausted in 30 days (section 502(d)(2)(C)(ii)).
      The FLAME Act of 2009 retains many provisions of the 
Senate recommendation and H.R. 1404. This includes the 
definitions (section 502(a)) and the authorization of such 
amounts as are necessary to carry out the section (section 
502(d)(2)(A)). The Act retains the provision that funds are 
available until expended (section 502(d)(3)) and the 
requirement that the Secretary notify the Congressional 
Committees if the Secretary estimates that only 60 days of 
funds remain in the respective FLAME fund (section 502(d)(4)).
      As in the previous versions of the FLAME Act, the FLAME 
funds cannot be used until the Secretary makes a declaration 
that the wildfire event is large or complex, or that the 
cumulative costs of suppression and Federal emergency 
activities will exceed within 30 days all available funds 
(section 502(e)). The conferees expect the Agencies to develop 
a streamlined declaration process that minimizes the 
administrative burden and ensures that funding is made 
available for eligible wildfire events in an expedited manner.
      As in previous versions of the FLAME Act, the FLAME funds 
may be used for State, private and Tribal land wildfire 
suppression activities consistent with any existing agreements 
(section 502(e)(3)). The Act retains the prohibition on 
transfers of non-fire funds for wildland fire suppression 
unless amounts in the FLAME funds and all other funds 
previously provided for wildland fire suppression will be 
exhausted within 30 days (section 502(g)). The Act retains 
accounting and reporting requirements (section 502(h)) and 
retains the requirement that estimates of wildfire suppression 
costs be provided to the Congress in an orderly fashion 
(section 502(h)(3)).
      As in the Senate recommended version, the FLAME Act of 
2009 includes a termination clause if no appropriations to, or 
withdrawals from, each FLAME fund have been made for three 
consecutive fiscal years (section 502(i)). The conference 
agreement includes an additional provision that if such 
termination occurs, remaining funds in each FLAME fund shall be 
transferred to and made a part of the Wildland Fire Management 
appropriation account of that Secretary (section 502(i)).
      Section 503. Cohesive Wildfire Management Strategy.--
Section 503 consists of the requirement for the Secretaries of 
Agriculture and the Interior to submit a joint report to 
Congress within one year that contains a cohesive wildfire 
management strategy consistent with recommendations described 
in recent reports of the Government Accountability Office. 
Nearly identical language was in the Senate recommended section 
432 and similar language was in section 3 of H.R. 1404.

                                                                                    INTERIOR AND ENVIRONMENT
