                          Summary of Estimates

    The Committee recommendation for the fiscal year 2010 
budget for the activities under the jurisdiction of the 
Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs 
is $48,700,000,000 in new discretionary budget authority, which 
is $1,901,713,000 below the fiscal year 2009 enacted level, 
including supplemental appropriations and $3,344,063,000 below 
the fiscal year 2010 budget request. An additional $158,900,000 
is for mandatory spending. The Committee notes that in fiscal 
year 2009, $3,679,500,000 in supplemental appropriations was 
provided in Public Law 110-252, $602,000,000 was provided in 
Public Law 111-5, and $9,700,213,000 was provided in Public Law 
111-32, including $2,534,375 for fiscal year 2010 requests.

                    FOREIGN ASSISTANCE AND DIPLOMACY

    The Committee is aware of the importance of ensuring that 
foreign assistance is targeted, efficient, and effective in 
furthering the interests of the United States abroad. This 
requires ongoing oversight and reform of programs and 
implementers by both the executive branch and Congress. The 
Committee has endeavored to provide this oversight and reform 
in the fiscal year 2010 act and accompanying report.
    Foreign assistance and diplomacy are essential to 
safeguarding the Nation's security, whether through military 
assistance programs that meet the needs of our allies in 
troubled regions, public diplomacy programs that serve to 
counter the misinformation spread by our adversaries, 
agriculture programs that provide food security, health 
programs that control the spread of communicable diseases and 
save lives in the most desolate and desperate of places, or 
education and training programs that help develop the skills of 
future generations. The return on the investments in these 
programs often takes years. Acts of international terrorism 
against the United States over the past two decades and the 
recent H1N1 pandemic underscore the absolute need for such 
programs--and deft diplomacy.
    The failure of foreign assistance programs and diplomacy is 
costly to the taxpayer and the men and women called upon to 
serve in harm's way. The Committee continues its investments in 
personnel and training at the Department of State and USAID to 
sharpen the Nation's diplomatic and development edge.

                           COUNTRY OVERVIEWS

    In its review of the fiscal year 2010 budget request, the 
Committee identified countries of interest, several of which 
are discussed below:
    Afghanistan.--The Committee recommends $2,761,500,000 for 
assistance for Afghanistan from all accounts in this act, which 
is equal to the budget request.
    The Committee notes the substantial investment in 
Afghanistan's development to date, and shares the view of the 
Department of State's Special Representative for Afghanistan 
and Pakistan that improvements in these programs and activities 
are needed. The Committee remains concerned with factors that 
undermine progress in that country, including: violence against 
the Afghan people by the Taliban and other extremists; weak and 
ineffective governance; allegations of official corruption; 
expensive and uncoordinated aid programs; human rights abuses 
including oppression of women and girls; and illicit poppy 
cultivation and drug trafficking. The Committee expects the 
Government of Afghanistan to do its share in defeating 
terrorism and providing a safe and stable country for its 
citizens. To help the Government of Afghanistan accomplish 
these goals, the Department of State and USAID should bolster 
Afghan ownership of the country's development and work with 
Afghans to plan and implement programs.
    Burma.--The Committee recommends $39,850,000 for Burma 
programs from all accounts in this act, which is $3,000,000 
above the budget request.
    The Committee shares the view of the Department of State 
and NGO community that more must be done to help the people of 
Burma who have long been repressed by a military junta that 
does not provide for basic needs. The Committee recognizes the 
difficult and controlled programmatic environment inside Burma 
and along Burma's borders with Thailand and India, and 
appreciates the dedication and service of those providing 
assistance. The Committee underscores that the root of Burma's 
problems are political in nature, and any effective resolution 
requires the full participation of the National League for 
Democracy and the ethnic nationalities.
    Cambodia.--The Committee recommends $72,770,000 for 
assistance for Cambodia from all accounts in this act, which is 
equal to the budget request.
    The Committee does not recognize Cambodia as a functioning 
democracy, and notes that official corruption and weak rule of 
law perpetuate a cycle of poverty, which is exacerbated by the 
global economic crisis. Nonetheless, the Committee supports 
continued investment in that country, particularly given its 
unique horrific past, and understands that weak states like 
Cambodia can become a safe haven for terrorists and other 
criminal elements. The Committee notes the positive steps taken 
by the Government of Cambodia to investigate and prosecute 
cases of human trafficking.
    Egypt.--The Committee recommends $1,295,200,000 for 
assistance for Egypt, which, when combined with funding 
appropriated in Public Law 111-32 to meet fiscal year 2010 
requirements, equals the budget request. An additional 
$50,000,000 was also included in Public Law 111-32 under the 
ESF heading.
    The Committee notes the importance of Egypt to United 
States security interests in the region, especially regarding 
peace between Israelis and Palestinians. The Committee 
encourages continued partnership on mutual concerns, 
particularly economic and political reforms, human rights, and 
counterterrorism. The Committee includes language providing for 
an endowment that could serve as a lasting source of support 
for this bilateral relationship.
     Indonesia.--The Committee recommends $207,100,000 for 
assistance for Indonesia from all accounts in this act, which 
is $2,770,000 above the budget request.
    The Committee endorses the administration's efforts to 
build a comprehensive partnership with Indonesia that will 
serve to strengthen the bilateral relationship. The Committee 
supports increased cooperation in areas of mutual interest, 
including security, economic development, environmental 
protection, military and judicial reform, and human rights. The 
Committee recognizes the advancement of democracy in that 
country. The Committee also supports the return of the Peace 
Corps to Indonesia. The Committee remains concerned with the 
lack of progress in bringing to justice military officers 
credibly alleged to have committed violations of human rights.
    Iran.--The Committee recommends $40,000,000 under the ESF 
heading for programs and activities to support reforms in Iran, 
and to counter Iranian influence throughout the Middle East 
region.
    The Committee underscores its support for the aspirations 
of the people of Iran for representative governance, and notes 
the growing illegitimacy of the ruling clerics and incumbent 
officials in Iran and abroad.
    Iraq.--The Committee recommends $459,300,000 for assistance 
for Iraq in title III of this act, which is $40,700,000 below 
the budget request.
    The near-term challenges for Iraq are significant, and 
include the need to maintain security and stability during a 
period of reduction of U.S. Armed Forces, and to conduct 
credible and competitive national elections. Responsible and 
visionary Iraqi leadership is essential in furthering the 
development of a peaceful and stable country in which citizens 
can live without violence and fear. The Committee provides 
authority to the Secretary of State to make available 
additional FMF assistance for border security for countries in 
the Middle East region, such as Jordan, should the situation in 
Iraq deteriorate significantly.
    Israel.--The Committee recommends $2,220,000,000 for 
assistance for Israel, which when combined with funding 
appropriated in Public Law 111-32 to meet fiscal year 2010 
requirements, equals the budget request. The Committee 
continues to recognize the important relationship between the 
United States and Israel, and of United States leadership in 
helping to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
    Jordan.--The Committee recommends $542,950,000 for 
assistance for Jordan, a key U.S. ally in a troubled region, 
from all accounts in this act, which when combined with funding 
appropriated in Public Law 111-32 to meet fiscal year 2010 
requirements, equals the budget request.
    Mongolia.--The Committee recommends up to $8,850,000 for 
assistance for Mongolia in title III of this act, which is 
$1,700,000 above the budget request. Funds are provided under 
the ESF heading to initiate partnerships on regional issues of 
mutual interest.
    North Korea.--The Committee does not recommend $98,000,000 
requested for energy-related assistance for North Korea.
    The Committee recognizes that political leadership 
transition in closed societies are often disruptive, more so as 
Pyongyang aspires to be a nuclear power. The Committee 
encourages the PRC and Russia to play a constructive role in 
encouraging North Korea to denuclearize.
    Pakistan.--The Committee recommends $1,280,000,000 for 
assistance for Pakistan in title III of this act, which is 
equal to the budget request. Funds are also provided in title 
IV for security assistance, in addition to the $700,000,000 
provided for Pakistan under the Pakistan Counterinsurgency 
Capability Fund in Public Law 111-32.
    The Committee strongly encourages the Government of 
Pakistan to redouble efforts to address the myriad challenges 
that give rise and opportunity to extremism in that country, 
including the lack of education and economic opportunities, 
corruption, poor governance, and human rights abuses. 
Assistance provided in this act and prior appropriations acts 
can only be effective if the Government of Pakistan 
demonstrates sustained political will to address these 
challenges, and to meet the basic needs of its citizens. The 
Committee expects Pakistan to demonstrate such will in the 
future, and to constructively engage with neighbors in the 
region to improve the political, security, and economic 
situation. The Committee also anticipates the administration 
may submit budget requests for assistance for Pakistan in the 
future to meet humanitarian needs arising from conflict.
    Philippines.--The Committee recommends $142,000,000 for 
assistance for the Philippines from all accounts in this act, 
which is $17,650,000 above the budget request.
    The Committee appreciates the relationship between the 
United States and the Philippines, and recommends assistance 
for programs and activities that support economic development, 
good governance, and the rule of law. In addition, assistance 
is provided to strengthen the bilateral military and security 
relationship to counter terrorism in the region.

                                TITLE I

                 DEPARTMENT OF STATE AND RELATED AGENCY

                          DEPARTMENT OF STATE

    The Committee recommends a total of $16,165,550,000 for the 
Department of State and the Broadcasting Board of Governors.

                   Administration of Foreign Affairs

                    DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR PROGRAMS

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2009...................................\1\$7,153,108,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................   8,960,016,000
Committee recommendation................................   8,227,000,000

\1\The enacted level includes $5,360,318,000 from Public Law 111-8, 
$704,900,000 from Public Law 110-252, $90,000,000 from Public Law 111-5, 
and $997,890,000 from Public Law 111-32, of which $374,375,000 is for 
programs and activities requested for fiscal year 2010.

    The Committee recommends $8,227,000,000 for Diplomatic and 
Consular Programs, which is $773,016,000 below the budget 
request and $1,073,892,000 above the fiscal year 2009 level. Of 
these funds, $1,595,000,000 is for worldwide security 
protection and $500,278,000 is for public diplomacy activities. 
The Committee recommendation separates the functions funded 
under this heading to provide more transparency in the uses of 
funds. However, the Department of State may reprogram funds as 
necessary, subject to consultation with the Committee.
    Human Resources.--The Committee recommends $2,667,130,000 
for all American salaries at overseas and domestic United 
States diplomatic missions, including $124,923,000 for 
additional new positions and requisite training under the Human 
Resources Initiative, as requested.
    Overseas Programs.--The Committee recommends $2,495,158,000 
for the operational programs of regional bureaus of the 
Department of State. Regional bureaus are responsible for 
managing U.S. foreign policy through bilateral and multilateral 
relationships. Funds support U.S. Embassies, consulates, and 
other diplomatic posts worldwide.
    Diplomatic Policy and Support.--The Committee recommends 
$892,012,000 for the operational programs of the functional 
bureaus of the Department of State to provide overall policy 
direction, coordination and program management among U.S. 
missions abroad.
    Security Programs.--The Committee recommends $2,172,700,000 
for the operation of security programs, including 
$1,374,160,000 for worldwide security protection to protect 
diplomatic personnel, overseas diplomatic missions, residences, 
and domestic facilities and information. An additional 
$220,840,000 is included within the Human Resources function 
for salaries to make up the total amount in this act for 
worldwide security protection, $1,595,000,000.
    Funds are allocated in the following table and subject to 
the requirements of section 7019 of this act:

                                        DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR PROGRAMS

                             PROGRAM ISSUES

    Airwing.--The Committee provided $25,000,000 for the 
Department of State's Afghanistan airwing in Public Law 111-32, 
an amount that exceeded the supplemental budget request by 
$25,000,000. The Committee therefore recommends $35,000,000 for 
such purposes in fiscal year 2010, which is $25,000,000 below 
the budget request.
    The Committee expects the Department of State and USAID to 
continue to follow the airwing directives, including inter-
agency coordination and communications interoperability, 
contained in Public Law 111-32.
    Cultural Heritage.--The Committee recommends $7,500,000 to 
preserve cultural heritage, of which $6,000,000 is for the 
Ambassador's Fund for Cultural Preservation and $1,000,000 is 
for the Cultural Antiquities Task Force. This is an increase of 
$1,000,000 above the budget request, to support at least two 
large projects of historic cultural significance. The 
Department of State should consult with the Committee prior to 
the obligation of funds.
    Diplomatic Security.--The Committee recognizes the 
important role of Diplomatic Security to protect personnel, 
facilities, and information in the United States and abroad, 
and encourages the Department of State to adequately address 
issues raised in the Office of Inspector General Report Number 
ISP-I-09-16, April 2009.
    The Committee provided $13,375,000 in Public Law 111-32 for 
a diplomatic security training facility, an amount that 
exceeded the budget request by $13,375,000. The Committee 
therefore recommends no funding for such purposes in fiscal 
year 2010.
    Information Technology.--The Committee supports the budget 
request for IT salaries and programs, including for 
cybersecurity, and encourages the Department of State to 
coordinate such activities with USAID and other Federal 
agencies, as appropriate. Given the inherent international 
functions of diplomacy and development, the Committee believes 
the Department of State and USAID to be particularly vulnerable 
to cyber attacks.
    Intelligence and Research.--The Committee supports the 
budget request for 15 new positions in the Bureau of 
Intelligence and Research, and recommends an additional 
$1,000,000 to support six additional analysts for priority 
countries.
    Iraq Operations.--The Committee notes that the Department 
of State estimates the monthly costs for Iraq operations at 
$130,100,000, a rate that is 14 times greater than the 
estimated monthly costs for current Afghanistan operations. The 
Committee believes this amount is not sustainable, and drains 
resources from other Department of State priorities overseas.
    The Committee provided $486,000,000 for Department of State 
operations in Iraq in Public Law 111-32, an amount that 
exceeded the budget request by $336,000,000. The Committee 
recommends $1,100,000,000 for such purposes in fiscal year 
2010.
    The Committee directs that the overhead cover security 
standard for all buildings and facilities located on the NEC in 
Baghdad shall meet uniform requirements, as established by the 
Department of State. To the extent Department of State real 
estate is provided for another department or agency's exclusive 
use, that department or agency is responsible for meeting such 
standard.
    Labor Officers.--The Committee is concerned that a number 
of labor officer posts at U.S. missions overseas have been 
vacant in recent years. Labor officers play a critical role in 
reporting on the worst forms of child labor and human 
trafficking, freedom of association, and labor rights 
compliance among trading partners. The Committee supports 
designation of personnel to these vacant posts and the 
allocation of greater resources in support of labor diplomacy.
    Locally Employed Staff.--According to the Department of 
State's June 2009 report ``Trends in Overseas Staffing and 
Support for Chiefs of Mission'', over 56,000 LES work in U.S. 
missions overseas, an increase of 1.8 percent above the 
calendar year 2008 level. Embassies in Sudan, Pakistan, 
Afghanistan, China, Mexico, Ethiopia, South Africa, India, 
Ghana and Canada have all had significant increases in LES 
positions over the past 2 years. Embassies in Belgium, Nepal, 
Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, Germany, Iraq and Eritrea have 
all had decreases during the same period.
    The Committee appreciates the support provided by LES to 
Embassy operations and programs, and recognizes that they often 
possess invaluable institutional knowledge on policies and 
procedures at their respective missions. The Committee is 
aware, however, that LES may serve without adequate salary 
increases and/or at less-than-prevailing wages and compensation 
packages, resulting in attrition. Hiring new LES may pose 
significant challenges if improvements are not made in 
compensation. The Committee endorses the recommendations of the 
Office of the Inspector General on LES compensation issues 
contained in Report Number ISP-I-09-44, April 2009.
    To begin to address the challenges posed by LES 
compensation, the Committee recommends $695,000,000 for LES 
salaries (excluding those under the Local Guard Program), and 
authorizes the use of such funds for awards and special 
benefits, including compensation should LES be killed in the 
line of duty. The Committee requires the Secretary of State to 
consult on the proposed guidelines for awards and special 
benefits for LES.
    Office of Global Women's Issues.--The Committee recommends 
$2,000,000 for the Office of Global Women's Issues in fiscal 
year 2010. The Committee supports efforts by this Office to 
integrate gender issues into assistance programs across all 
sectors of development and to generate public-private 
partnerships to assist women and girls. The Committee 
recognizes that gender issues can be addressed by assistance 
programs provided through Federal agencies involved in 
development, and directs the Ambassador-at-Large for Global 
Women's Issues to consult with USAID, the Departments of 
Agriculture, Defense, Health and Human Services, Justice, and 
other relevant Federal agencies to establish metrics 
identifying the benefits accrued for women globally by U.S. 
assistance.
    Personnel and Training.--The Department of State has 
undertaken several initiatives to increase personnel and 
training to reverse the effects of the downsizing that occurred 
in the 1990s, and to strengthen the diplomatic corps following 
the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, including: 
the Diplomatic Readiness Initiative (2002-2004); 
Transformational Diplomacy/Global Repositioning (2006-2008); 
and the Human Resources Initiative (2008 to the present). 
However, the sustained impact of these initiatives has been 
eroded by significant personnel needs in Iraq and Afghanistan, 
which created vacancies in key regions such as South and 
Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Western 
Hemisphere. The Committee notes that 2008 data from the 
Department of State indicates 1,619 vacancies worldwide, and 
several hundred positions filled by below-grade personnel or 
personnel sent to the field without adequate training.
    The Committee supports the budget request for the Human 
Resources Initiative, which will provide an additional 565 
positions, including 332 to expand the Department's overseas 
presence. The Committee also supports the budget request for an 
additional 661 positions. The Committee directs the Secretary 
of State to submit a report on the overall fiscal year 2010 
requirements, including how such personnel and training 
contribute to a projected 3-year strategy for personnel growth, 
training and funding requirements for the Department. The 
Committee restricts the obligation of funds for new positions 
on the submission of this strategy document, which should serve 
as a detailed blueprint for the Human Resources Initiative.
    Public Diplomacy.--The Committee recommends a total of 
$506,278,000 for public diplomacy programs, to be funded 
through direct appropriations and Department of State fees.
    While the Committee supports English Access 
Microscholarship, the Committee directs the Bureau of Education 
and Cultural Affairs to bolster follow-up activities for EAM 
alumni to maximize the impact of this program.
    The Committee recommends the Department of State continue 
to support public diplomacy activities in Pakistan that train 
madrassa leaders, helping them improve the quality of 
education, expand education to include scientific and social 
disciplines, adopt pedagogy that develop critical thinking 
skills among students, and encourage adherence to the 
principles of tolerance and human rights in Islam. The 
Committee recommends that the Department also consider 
supporting English language training for madrassa leaders.
    Tibet.--The Committee recognizes the important role played 
by the Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues in implementing 
Tibet programs and policies. The Committee urges the Secretary 
of State to continue to provide support for the Coordinator in 
carrying out the broad responsibilities detailed in section 
621(d) of Public Law 107-228, as well as for convening 
coordinating meetings for appropriate U.S. Government agencies, 
NGOs, and representatives of the Tibetan leadership.
    Trafficking in Persons.--The Committee recommends 
$12,000,000 for the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in 
Persons, which is $6,990,000 above the budget request.

                                REPORTS

    Public Diplomacy.--The Committee is concerned with limited 
public access to Information Resource Centers that were moved 
onto U.S. Embassy compounds, 40 percent of which are accessible 
by appointment only and 11 percent of which have no public 
access at all. The Secretary of State shall submit a report to 
the Committee not later than 90 days after enactment of this 
act that assesses the security implications and public 
diplomacy gains of establishing U.S. public diplomacy 
facilities in locations that maximize their use, consistent 
with the authority given to the Secretary under section 
606(a)(2)(B) of Appendix G of Public Law 106-113 to waive 
certain requirements of that act.
    Security Requirements and Programs.--The Secretary of State 
shall submit a report to the Committee on Appropriations not 
later than 90 days after enactment of this act describing 
guidelines used by the Department of State to consider the 
cost-benefit ratio of the conduct (including oversight) of 
foreign assistance and public diplomacy programs in Iraq and 
Afghanistan, and the security requirements for such programs. 
The Committee notes that the security costs associated with PRT 
operations in these countries are not sustainable without 
support from the Department of Defense.

                   CIVILIAN STABILIZATION INITIATIVE

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2009....................................  \1\$45,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................     323,272,000
Committee recommendation................................     150,000,000

\1\An additional $30,000,000 was provided for CSI in title II in fiscal 
year 2009.

    The Committee recommends $150,000,000 for the Civilian 
Stabilization Initiative, which is $173,272,000 below the 
budget request and $75,000,000 above prior year enacted levels.
    The Committee recognizes the potential of the CSI to 
mitigate the impact of conflict and instability abroad, 
particularly in Afghanistan. The Committee believes that the 
success of the CSI can best be achieved through gradual stand 
up and implementation. Funding increases should be based on 
efficient operations and measurable performance successes, both 
of which are works in progress. The Committee recommends 
funding for CSI at a level that will permit sensible 
operational expansion.
    Funds for CSI are contained under a single heading, as 
requested, and are allocated in the following table, subject to 
the requirements of section 7019 of this act:

                                        CIVILIAN STABILIZATION INITIATIVE

    Airlift.--The Committee is concerned that the CSI has no 
dedicated airlift capabilities, which calls into question its 
ability to rapidly deploy Civilian Response Corps personnel. 
Deployment funds are therefore conditioned on a Secretary of 
State certification that the Department of State has signed a 
memorandum of understanding with the Department of Defense 
relating to the provision of airlift for CRC personnel and 
equipment.
    Equipment.--The Committee recommends $25,000,000 for 
equipment for the CSI, which is $45,191,000 below the request. 
The Committee underscores that priority for armored vehicles 
should be given to existing Department of State overseas 
requirements.
    Personnel.--The Committee does not recommend funding for a

    Every program for which the Committee recommends funding in 
the previous table is established pursuant to an act of 
Congress, or is a program for which funding is authorized by an 
act of Congress, or was included in the President's budget 
request for fiscal year 2010.
    Youth Exchange.--The Committee supports the goals of the 
Youth Exchange and Study Program, which enables secondary 
school students from countries with significant Muslim 
populations to study in the United States. The Committee 
recommends $25,000,000 for this program in fiscal year 2010.
    Paul Simon Study Abroad Foundation.--The Committee is aware 
of legislation to authorize appropriations for the Senator Paul 
Simon Study Abroad Foundation, which would provide 
opportunities for college-age students to study abroad. The 
Committee will consider a request for funding for this program 
if it is authorized by law.
    One-time International Exchange Grant Program.--The 
Committee recommends $8,000,000 to provide one-time competitive 
grants for international exchanges that address issues of 
mutual interest to the United States and other countries, 
consistent with the criteria established in fiscal year 2008. 
This program shall be only for the actual exchange of people 
and should benefit a population that is not being addressed 
through existing authorized exchanges. The Secretary of State 
shall submit a report to the Committee of those organizations 
that are eligible for a grant and, not later than September 1, 
2010, a report describing the grant recipients and intended use 
of funds.
    The Committee encourages the Department to utilize this 
program to expand international exchanges in areas that are not 
predominantly served by other U.S. Government exchange 
programs, such as exchange with developing countries; community 
leaders who would not traditionally have an opportunity to 
participate in an exchange; students and youth with high 
financial need; and minority ethnic groups. The Committee notes 
that an exchange program that received a one-time grant in a 
previous year is ineligible for additional one-time funding, 
but the Committee encourages the Department to consider new 
proposals from previously funded grantees within discretionary 
funding if they meet appropriate guidelines.
    Exchange programs eligible for consideration in fiscal year 
2010 include: Monmouth University; State University of New 
York, Levin Institute; Ohio Northern University College of Law; 
Sister Cities International; Spelman College; University of 
Iowa; and the University of Vermont.

                       REPRESENTATION ALLOWANCES

Appropriations, 2009....................................      $8,175,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................       8,175,000
Committee recommendation................................       8,175,000

    The Committee recommends $8,175,000 for Representation 
Allowances, which is equal to the budget request, for 
reimbursement to Foreign Service Officers for expenditures 
incurred in their official capacities abroad in establishing 
and maintaining relations with officials of foreign governments 
and members of local communities. The Committee recommends that 
not more than $500,000 of the funds made available under this 
account and under the Emergencies in the Diplomatic and 
Consular Service heading may be made available for official 
representation funds for the Office of the Chief of Protocol.

              PROTECTION OF FOREIGN MISSIONS AND OFFICIALS

Appropriations, 2009....................................     $22,814,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................      27,159,000
Committee recommendation................................      27,159,000

    The Committee recommends $27,159,000 for Protection of 
Foreign Missions and Officials, which is equal to the budget 
request, to reimburse local governments and communities for the 
extraordinary costs incurred in providing protection for 
international organizations, foreign missions and officials, 
and foreign dignitaries under certain circumstances.
    The Committee intends that in instances where a local 
jurisdiction will realize a financial benefit from a visit by a 
foreign delegation, such circumstances should be taken into 
account by the Department in assessing the need for 
reimbursement under this program. The Committee expects the 
Department to provide reimbursement to local jurisdictions on a 
timely basis if claims are fully justified.

            EMBASSY SECURITY, CONSTRUCTION, AND MAINTENANCE

Appropriations, 2009...................................\1\$2,669,369,000

$41,300,000 from Public Law 110-252 and $921,500,000 from Public Law 
111-32, of which $91,000,000 is for programs and activities requested 
for fiscal year 2010.

    The Committee recommends $1,724,150,000 for Embassy 
Security, Construction, and Maintenance for the management of 
real property assets overseas in order to provide diplomatic 
and consular missions with secure, safe, and functional 
facilities, of which $876,850,000 is for maintenance and 
planning for Department of State facilities and $847,300,000 is 
for worldwide security upgrades, acquisition, and construction 
program.
    Environmental Health Hazards.--In prioritizing the 
construction of NECs, the Committee directs the Department of 
State to consider accelerating those projects where existing 
facilities pose an environmental health hazard to personnel, as 
in Mongolia.
    Pakistan/Peshawar.--The Committee recognizes the necessity 
for secure facilities in Peshawar, and provided $131,000,000 
for such purposes in Public Law 111-32, an amount that exceeded 
the supplemental budget request by $90,900,000. The Committee 
therefore recommends no funding for such purposes in fiscal 
year 2010.
    Soft Targets.--The Committee recommends $6,500,000 for 
security enhancement to soft targets such as overseas schools 
and residential compounds, an increase of $2,000,000 above the 
budget request. The Committee directs that additional funds be 
used in countries and regions impacted by political 
instability.

Diplomatic and Consular Service, which is equal to the budget 
request, to meet unforeseen emergency requirements as 
authorized by section 4 of the State Department Basic 
Authorities Act. The Committee strongly encourages the 
Department to prioritize expenditures for evacuations and 
rewards and to minimize the use of this fund for travel and 
representational expenses.

                    BUYING POWER MAINTENANCE ACCOUNT

Appropriations, 2009....................................      $5,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................      10,000,000

Maintenance Account, which is equal to the budget request, to 
manage exchange rate losses in the cost of Department of State 
operations overseas.

Loans Program Account, which is equal to the budget request, to 
support a direct loan program in accordance with the Credit 
Reform Act which assists United States citizens overseas in 
dire need.

              PAYMENT TO THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE IN TAIWAN

Institute in Taiwan, which is equal to the budget request, to 
support United States political and security interests, provide 
consular services, and promote exchange programs in Taiwan.

     PAYMENT TO THE FOREIGN SERVICE RETIREMENT AND DISABILITY FUND

Appropriations, 2009....................................    $157,100,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................     158,900,000
Committee recommendation................................     158,900,000

\1\The enacted level includes $1,529,400,000 from Public Law 111-8 and 
$75,000,000 from Public Law 110-252.

    The Committee recommends $1,697,000,000 for Contributions 
to International Organizations, which is $100,000,000 below the 
budget request, for the assessed costs of U.S. membership in 
international organizations as authorized by conventions, 
treaties, or specific acts of Congress for fiscal year 2010.
    The Committee notes that the budget request included 
$175,000,000 to synchronize payments to international 
organizations in the fiscal year in which they are due. 
Although the Committee was unable to fund the full budget 
request, it supports this goal particularly for organizations 
that are important to U.S. security interests, such as NATO, 
the IAEA, and the OPCW.

                                 REPORT

    Organization of American States.--The Committee supports 
the OAS and is concerned with the fiscal difficulties it faces. 
There is also a concern that the OAS may be stretched too thin 
and that it should focus where it can have the most impact, 
consistent with its mission. The Committee directs the 
Secretary of State to submit a report not later than 90 days 
after enactment of this act, detailing OAS advisory contracts 
signed during the previous 12 months, efforts by the OAS 
Secretary General to put the OAS on a solid financial footing 
including by reducing operating expenses, and the 
implementation and progress of OAS projects that receive U.S. 
funding.

U.N. peacekeeping at the assessed level for the current year in 
Cyprus.

requested for Somalia, with modifications, under the PKO 
account.

                       International Commissions

obligations to international commissions in fiscal year 2010 
and recognizes that funds are requested under the Department of 
State as a result of international treaties.

    Afghanistan and Pakistan.--The Committee recommends up to 
$16,000,000 for Pashto and Dari broadcasts targeted toward 
Afghanistan and northwest Pakistan.
    Cuba.--The Committee is concerned with reports, including 
by the GAO, that United States Government-funded TV and radio 
broadcasts to Cuba are routinely jammed by the Cuban Government 
and may be having little effect. The Committee includes a 
provision requiring a report on the efficacy of this program, 
and alternative options for using the funds to reach a larger 
audience in Cuba. The Committee believes that absent reliable 
data that the broadcasts are cost effective, alternative 
approaches for communicating with the Cuban people, including 
DVDs, cell phones, and other handheld electronic devices should 
be considered.
    Internet Programs.--The Committee recommends that in the 
interest of improving relations between the United States and 
the Arab world, and leveraging emergent global online social 
media networks, the Department of State should support efforts 
which seek to increase cross-language (human and machine 
assisted translation) social networking focused on Internet-
based social media sharing (text, voice, and video), and 
collaborative media and educational projects which use the 
Internet to bring together Arabic and English journalists and 
educators.
    Iranian Access.--The Committee recommends up to $8,000,000, 
which includes up to $1,494,000 above the budget request, for 
Radio Farda for activities to support transmission 
enhancements, including through additional satellite channels, 
if feasible, and increased proxy capacity, to improve the 
Iranian public's access to broadcasts. These activities should 
be coordinated with other activities supported by the 
Department of State to increase communication and information 
directed to audiences inside Iran.
    National Communications Strategy.--The Committee notes that 
a May 27, 2009 report by the Government Accountability Office 
(GAO-09-679SP) concluded that U.S. strategic communication 
efforts lack sufficient interagency coordination and planning, 
and definition of roles and responsibilities. The Committee 
encourages the administration to support agency-level plans as 
part of its national communications strategy, as required by 
section 1055(a) of Public Law 110-417, and to provide the 
Committee with such information prior to the submission of the 
fiscal year 2011 budget request.
    The Committee notes that BBG's performance measurement 
system is not currently linked to national communication 
strategy goals. The Committee directs that not later than 60 
days after enactment of this act, BBG submit a report to the 
Committee detailing the national strategic communication goals 
supported by BBG's strategic plan and activities, and which 
goals, if any, BBG considers inconsistent with its mandate, to 
include an explanation for such inconsistency.
    North Korea.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$8,000,000 for broadcasting into North Korea through RFA Korea 
Service and VOA Korea Service, which is equal to the fiscal 
year 2009 level.
    Tibet.--The Committee recommends sufficient funding to 
continue RFA and VOA Tibetan language services.

                    GLOBAL HEALTH AND CHILD SURVIVAL

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2009...................................\1\$7,339,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................   7,595,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   7,773,000,000

\1\The enacted level includes $7,114,000,000 from Public Law 111-8, 
$75,000,000 from Public Law 110-252 and $150,000,000 from Public Law 
111-32, of which $50,000,000 is for programs and activities requested 
for fiscal year 2010.

    The Committee recommends a total of $7,773,000,000 for 
Global Health and Child Survival to combat HIV/AIDS, 
tuberculosis, malaria, avian influenza, global pandemics, and 
other infectious diseases including neglected tropical 
diseases, and to reduce child mortality, provide voluntary 
family planning services, address the needs of vulnerable 
children, and improve women's health.

                        GLOBAL HEALTH INITIATIVE

    The Committee notes that despite U.S. leadership in saving 
millions of lives from HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis, 
thousands of children around the world die every day from 
extreme poverty and preventable diseases. A more integrated and 
sustainable approach to fighting disease, improving basic 
healthcare, and strengthening health systems is necessary. The 
Committee endorses the President's Global Health Initiative as 
an opportunity to create a comprehensive and sustainable global 
health strategy that identifies specific initiatives, 
quantitative goals, and appropriate funding levels for global 
health.
    Funds are allocated in the following table and subject to 
the requirements of section 7019 of this act:

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

                   CHILD SURVIVAL AND MATERNAL HEALTH

    The Committee recommends $2,414,000,000 for child and 
maternal health activities under the GHCS account, which is 
$78,000,000 above the request. The Committee recognizes that 
among the most useful measures of the effectiveness of a 
country's public health system is the number of children who 
die before the age of 5 and the number of women who die from 
pregnancy-related causes. The overwhelming majority of such 
deaths could be prevented with low-cost interventions by 
trained health care workers. Addressing this need should be a 
priority of USAID's global health strategy.
    Iodine Deficiency.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$2,000,000 for UNICEF's IDD program. IDD is the leading 
preventable cause of mental retardation in children. Funds 
provided through the USAID partnership with UNICEF are 
preventing the mental retardation of millions of children 
through programs to iodize salt.
    Polio.--The Committee recommends $32,000,000 for programs 
to eradicate polio, an amount equal to prior fiscal years. 
Funds should be used to provide for the delivery of vaccines 
and the development of the infrastructure necessary to fully 
implement the program and achieve its goals.
    Vaccines and Immunization.--The Committee recommends 
$79,000,000 for a contribution to the GAVI Fund.
    Vitamin A and Other Micronutrients.--The Committee 
recommends $33,000,000 for USAID's micronutrient program, of 
which not less than $23,000,000 is for programs related to 
vitamin A deficiency. Vitamin A is essential for the 
functioning of the immune system and increases children's 
resistance to disease and blindness.
    Vulnerable Children.--The Committee recommends $15,000,000 
for programs and activities that address the needs of 
vulnerable children, of which not less than $2,000,000 is for 
assistance for blind children. USAID should administer the 
programs in a manner that delivers the maximum amount of funds 
to the field.

                  FAMILY PLANNING/REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH

    The Committee recommends a total of $628,457,000 from all 
accounts in this act for family planning and reproductive 
health programs, including $50,000,000 for UNFPA.

                                HIV/AIDS

    The Committee recommends a total of $5,709,000,000 for 
programs and activities to combat HIV/AIDS, of which 
$5,359,000,000 is for PEPFAR and $350,000,000 is for USAID.
    Global Fund.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$700,000,000 in this act for a U.S. contribution to the Global 
Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
    The Committee supports the Department of State and USAID's 
ongoing effort to assist the Global Fund to more effectively 
manage the demand side of its budget, and supports the recent 
creation of the Working Group to Manage Supply and Demand. The 
Committee is concerned with the Fund's proposal submission and 
approval process, including the apparent lack of consideration 
of the amount of undisbursed funds that are available for 
existing programs in countries prior to the approval of new 
proposals. The Committee believes that approving new proposals 
without analyzing disbursements of existing funds encourages 
countries to submit an unlimited number of proposals and is an 
unsustainable programming model.
    Mother-to-Child Transmission.--The Committee continues to 
support programs that prevent mother-to-child transmission 
[PMTCT] of HIV. The Committee directs the Global AIDS 
Coordinator to provide the funds and technical assistance 
necessary to expand access to PMTCT services.
    Nutrition.--The Committee notes that nutrition plays a key 
role in maintaining quality of life for people with HIV/AIDS, 
and intends that HIV/AIDS funds be used for programs that 
address the development and implementation of nutrition 
support, guidelines, and care services for people living with 
HIV/AIDS.
    Reimbursements.--The Committee understands OGAC has agreed 
to provide USAID reimbursements to cover direct and indirect 
PEPFAR implementation costs incurred both at headquarters and 
in the field, and expects OGAC and USAID to consult with the 
Committee regarding fiscal year 2010 reimbursement levels in a 
timely manner.

                          INFECTIOUS DISEASES

    The Committee recommends a total of $973,000,000 for other 
infectious diseases, including influenza, tuberculosis, 
malaria, measles, meningitis, and neglected tropical diseases.
    Influenza Pandemic Preparedness and Response.--The 
Committee provided $50,000,000 for influenza pandemic 
preparedness and response in Public Law 111-32 and recommends 
$100,000,000 in this act in anticipation of the continuing 
spread of Avian Influenza and the H1N1 virus.
    Malaria.--The Committee recommends a total of $585,000,000 
for programs to combat malaria. The Committee directs that 
these funds be made available in accordance with country 
strategic plans incorporating best public health practices 
including insecticide-treated bed nets, artemisinin combination 
therapies, and indoor residual spraying, and with significant 
support for purchase of commodities and equipment. USAID is 
encouraged to increase its investment in public-private 
partnerships involved in research, development, access and 
delivery of anti-malarial medications.
    Neglected Tropical Diseases.--The Committee recommends 
$70,000,000 to support expansion of USAID's integrated response 
to neglected tropical diseases, including intestinal parasites, 
schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis, 
trachoma, soil transmitted helminthes, and leprosy. The 
Committee recognizes the chronic disabilities and economic 
burden that neglected tropical diseases inflict on society and 
requests to be consulted prior to the obligation of funds, 
including country-specific allocations.
    Sickle Cell Disease.--The Committee recognizes the 
destabilizing nature of sickle cell disease, and recommends 
USAID work with other Federal departments and agencies on a 
coordinated approach to combating the disease in Africa.
    Tuberculosis.--The Committee recommends a total of 
$201,000,000 for programs to combat TB. The Committee supports 
the development of a new, safe, effective and affordable 
vaccine to protect against all strains of TB, including MDR or 
XDR. USAID should consider supporting clinical trials for TB 
vaccines in developing countries.

                        RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

    Collaboration.--USAID should expand collaboration with 
other donors and governments to develop new medicines, 
diagnostics, and vaccines for diseases that particularly affect 
developing countries.
    Microbicides.--The Committee recommends $45,000,000 for 
research on and development of microbicides to prevent HIV/
AIDS. The Committee encourages USAID to conduct external 
consultations on program priorities and strategies to ensure 
the most effective use of resources, and to facilitate 
partnerships between industry and nonprofit product development 
organizations.
    Water.--The Committee commends USAID for its work to 
improve access to clean drinking water through household water 
treatment and hygiene programs, and recommends increased 
funding for these activities to reduce the high percentage of 
child morbidity and mortality due to waterborne illnesses.

                                REPORTS

    Global Fund.--The Committee directs the Global AIDS 
Coordinator to report to the Committee, not later than 90 days 
after enactment of this act, on the findings of the Working 
Group to Manage Supply and Demand, including how future 
estimates of U.S. contributions to the Global Fund will be 
affected by such findings.
    Health Research and Development.--The Committee directs 
USAID to submit the ``Health-Related Research and Development 
Activities at USAID'' annual research and development report 
not later than September 30, 2010.
    Microbicides.--The Committee directs the Global AIDS 
Coordinator to submit a report, not later than 90 days after 
enactment of this act, detailing ways the Department of State 
can increase its role in microbicide development and product 
access.

                               PROPOSALS

                                PROGRAMS

                     AGRICULTURE AND FOOD SECURITY

    Biotechnology Research.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $30,000,000 for plant and biotechnology research and 
development programs to improve food security and income 
generation, particularly in Africa and Asia.
    Collaborative Research Support Programs.--The Committee 
recommends $31,000,000 for CRSPs to improve food security and 
income generation, particularly in Africa and Asia. The 
Committee supports research and development on salt-resistant 
crops and ridge tillage land use systems in West and sub-
Saharan Africa. The Committee recognizes the significance of 
soil and water management in agricultural development and food 
security and continues to support a CRSP in this area.
    Dairy Development Programs.--The Committee continues its 
support for dairy development programs.
    Global Crop Diversity Trust.--The Committee recommends 
$10,000,000 for a United States contribution to the Global Crop 
Diversity Trust's endowment, which seeks to ensure the 
viability of agriculture worldwide by conserving and making 
available collections of crop diversity.
    PVOs and Cooperatives.--The Committee directs the USAID 
Administrator to make grants and cooperative agreements 
available to PVOs and cooperatives to carry out agriculture and 
rural development programs that meet the objectives of section 
103(a)(1) of the FAA.
    Water Management Systems.--The Committee recognizes the 
significant role of efficient water management systems in the 
promotion of agriculture and food security in developing 
countries, and urges USAID to consider funding medium and long-
term water programs through agriculture assistance programs.

                     ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

    Cooperative Development Program.--The Committee has long 
recognized the important role that U.S. cooperatives and credit 
unions play in overseas programs as a means to lift low income 
people out of poverty by mobilizing equity and savings for 
community-based economic growth. The Committee recommends 
$10,000,000 for USAID's Cooperative Development Program within 
the Office of Private and Voluntary Cooperation.
    Microenterprise Development Programs.--The Committee 
recommends not less than $265,000,000 from all accounts in this 
act for microfinance and microenterprise development programs 
for the poor, especially women. The Committee directs that 50 
percent of funds be for grants to private networks, 
practitioner institutions, and NGOs, and that funds be provided 
for microfinance service providers working with people infected 
with HIV/AIDS.
    The Committee encourages investment in a variety of 
financial services that allows the poor to save, borrow, and 
access insurance, remittances and other key services. USAID 
should target half of all microfinance and microenterprise 
funds to the very poor, as required by section 251(c) of the 
FAA.
    Trade Capacity Building.--The Committee recommends a total 
of $300,149,000 in this act for trade capacity building, 
including $25,000,000 for labor and environmental capacity 
building for countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

                               EDUCATION

    Basic Education.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$800,000,000 in this act for basic education programs, 
including programs aimed at improving early childhood 
development, primary and secondary education, teacher training 
and basic skills training for adults and out of school youth.
    The Committee recommends continued funding for programs 
that increase access to education for children in sub-Saharan 
Africa through the reduction or elimination of school fees, and 
which increase access to primary education for girls, including 
in Ethiopia.
    Higher Education.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$200,000,000 in this act for higher education programs, 
including $25,000,000 for such programs in Africa. Higher 
education partnerships provide training for faculty and staff, 
and strengthened institutional management such as revised 
administrative procedures, new degree programs, expanded 
curricula, and research opportunities. The Committee supports 
the expansion of programs that establish higher education 
partnerships between American and foreign higher education 
institutions including community colleges, and recommends 
$15,000,000 for such partnerships in Africa. Partnerships 
should be funded on an open, competitive basis, and should 
focus on such fields as agriculture, environment and natural 
resources, engineering, science and technology, health, 
education and teacher training, public administration, and 
business management and economics.
    Workforce Development.--The Committee recommends USAID 
expand programs that assist youth and adults in acquiring 
skills to find jobs and establish businesses, to include 
technical and vocational training, workforce readiness 
activities, and institutional capacity building to provide 
demand driven workforce development, with special consideration 
to gender issues. USAID should continue to support networks 
among U.S. businesses, education providers and civil society 
and their counterparts in developing countries to design and 
implement workforce development programs for male and female 
youth and adults.
    American Schools and Hospitals Abroad Program.--The 
Committee continues to recognize the contributions to U.S. 
foreign policy by institutions funded by the ASHA program. The 
Committee expects USAID to allocate sufficient sums to 
administer the ASHA program from funds provided for operating 
expenses, so it will not be necessary to expend program funds 
for administrative purposes.
    The Committee recommends $23,000,000 for the ASHA program 
in fiscal year 2010, with the expectation that USAID will 
allocate funds under terms and conditions similar to prior 
fiscal years. The Committee underscores that such assistance is 
not for permanent budget support to ASHA recipients, and that 
proposals shall be considered in full and open competition, and 
in accordance with all applicable rules and regulations.
    The Committee recommends that priority be given to 
institutions which demonstrate a need and commitment to private 
fundraising to match government support, and to newer 
applicants that demonstrate the best of American ideas and 
practices in the regions they serve. The Committee recommends 
USAID consider proposals from the following organizations, 
among others: American Community School, Lebanon; American 
University of Beirut; American University in Kosovo; Ashdod 
Emergency Medical Center; EARTH University in Costa Rica; Edith 
Wolfson Medical Center; Feinberg Graduate School of the 
Weizmann Institute of Science; Hadassah Medical Organization; 
Hebrew University; Johns Hopkins University's Centers in 
Nanjing, China and Bologna, Italy; Kigali Medical University 
Foundation; Lebanese American University; Robert College; 
Rosary Sisters Hospital in Jordan; Tel Aviv University; and 
Uganda Program on Cancer and Infectious Diseases.

                CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENVIRONMENT PROGRAMS

    The Committee recognizes the daunting challenges posed by 
global warming and the urgent need to help developing countries 
reduce carbon emissions, adapt to rising temperatures and sea 
levels, protect biodiversity, and implement policies and 
practices for the sustainable use of natural resources. The 
Committee recommends a total of $1,239,500,000 in this act for 
climate change and environment programs and activities 
administered by USAID, the Department of State, and the 
Department of the Treasury. These efforts will also require the 
participation of the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service, and other Federal agencies.
    Funds are allocated in the following table and subject to 
the requirements of section 7019 of this act:

                                                                             CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENVIRONMENT PROGRAMS

    Climate Change.--The Committee recommends funding through 
bilateral and multilateral mechanisms for programs and 
activities to promote the sustainable use of renewable energy 
technologies and energy efficient end-use technologies, carbon 
sequestration, and carbon accounting. While the Committee 
recommends $400,000,000 for the Clean Technology Fund, 
$75,000,000 for the Strategic Climate Fund, and $10,000,000 for 
the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility which are managed by the 
World Bank, the Committee is concerned with the Bank's long 
history of financing electric power plants fueled with coal or 
other polluting fossil fuels, roads, large dams, and petroleum 
and mining operations in pristine areas, and ignoring calls to 
increase investments in renewable technologies. The Bank's 
record of consultation with interested stake-holders and 
affected groups also continues to fall short. The Committee 
recommends contributions to these funds because it believes 
there are no other existing mechanisms capable of managing 
climate change resources focused on reducing greenhouse gas 
emissions on the large scale necessary at this critical time, 
but it limits the use of U.S. funds to only support for zero-
carbon technologies with the exception of the transportation 
sector. The use of natural gas and other alternative fuels to 
replace heavily polluting diesel buses and trains is 
encouraged. The Committee directs the Secretary of the Treasury 
to vigorously promote financing for zero-carbon technologies, 
many of which are commercially viable, within the Clean 
Technology Fund, as well as changes in the Bank's lending 
practices within the energy sector generally. Similar limits 
are imposed on USAID energy programs, for which funds should be 
used, among other purposes, to directly support renewable 
energy technologies such as solar-thermal, wind, small hydro, 
and geo-thermal.
    The Committee supports programs and activities to assist 
developing countries adapt to the effects of global warming, 
through USAID and the Least Developed Countries Fund and the 
Special Climate Change Fund administered by the GEF. The 
Committee notes that the U.S. population produces significant 
amounts of global greenhouse gases, and believes that in 
addition to providing practical solutions to serious challenges 
facing inhabitants of developing countries with areas of low-
elevation, or that are dependent on agriculture or already 
struggling with fresh water scarcity and recurrent droughts, 
support for adaptation programs conveys a recognition of shared 
responsibility to mitigate the impacts of climate change. The 
Committee anticipates that far more resources will be necessary 
for adaptation programs in the future.
    The Committee directs USAID to review the relationships 
between population growth and climate change to determine how 
experience in implementing population-environment activities 
applies to climate change adaptation and to efforts to increase 
the resilience of local communities to climate change.
    Biodiversity.--The Committee continues to support USAID's 
programs and activities to protect biodiversity, including 
forests, wildlife, and water ecosystems, and recommends a total 
of $200,000,000 in fiscal year 2010, which is $5,000,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 level. The Committee recommends not less 
than $25,000,000 for USAID's conservation programs in the 
Amazon Basin, of which $15,000,000 is for the Initiative for 
Conservation in the Andean Amazon and $10,000,000 is for such 
activities in the Brazilian Amazon. In addition, $18,500,000 is 
recommended for the Congo Basin Forest Partnership, including 
not less than $2,500,000 for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife 
Service's program to protect great apes in Central Africa. The 
Committee supports continued funding for USAID's program to 
protect the habitat of orangutans in Borneo and Sumatra, and 
for USAID's program to protect wildlife in the Boma Jonglei 
area of Southern Sudan.
    The Committee also recommends additional assistance for 
developing countries to protect endangered forests, wildlife, 
and water ecosystems through international programs 
administered by the U.S. Forest Service (forest and wildlife 
conservation) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service 
(multilateral species and migratory bird conservation). The 
Committee encourages support for international programs of the 
U.S. National Park Service (national park management) and the 
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (coral reefs 
and marine-protected areas).
    Oceans.--The Committee is aware that CO2 
emissions from burning fossil fuels and deforestation is 
changing the acidity of the ocean in ways that pose grave 
threats to fish and other ocean wildlife. The Committee expects 
the Departments of State and Treasury to coordinate with NOAA 
on the use of funds for climate change programs. The Committee 
also recommends $10,000,000 for the Coral Triangle Initiative.

                            GLOBAL PROGRAMS

    Contracting.--The Committee is concerned that USAID's 
increasing reliance on the use of Indefinite Quantity Contracts 
[IQCs] and umbrella grants undermines competitive contracting 
processes, inhibits the participation of smaller organizations 
which bring niche expertise, and limits creative and innovative 
approaches to development. Local knowledge and relationships 
are the basis of effective development efforts, yet IQCs and 
other large solicitations often go to organizations that do not 
retain a permanent in-country presence beyond the scope of a 
particular project.
    The Committee is further concerned that decisions to 
utilize IQCs and umbrella grants are often made principally for 
reasons of administrative convenience rather than project 
effectiveness. The Committee notes that lack of sufficient 
administrative resources is partly responsible for this loss of 
diversity in implementing organizations and expects that the 
additional resources provided for staffing in this act will 
help to reduce reliance on IQCs and umbrella grants.
    Partner Vetting.--The Committee supports effective vetting 
procedures to prevent U.S. foreign assistance funds from 
supporting individuals or organizations involved in terrorism. 
Such procedures are being implemented in the West Bank and 
Gaza. The Committee is concerned that USAID plans to put into 
effect a new PVS which, as currently proposed, could have 
unintended, adverse consequences for assistance programs 
implemented by NGOs and contractors. In order to ensure a new 
PVS reflects the right balance between security, privacy and 
effective implementation of assistance programs, the Committee 
requires a new USAID Administrator to conduct a review of PVS 
and consult with affected organizations and Congress.
    Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund.--The Committee continues to 
support the LWVF, administered by USAID, which assists persons 
who are disabled as a result of armed conflict. The Committee 
recommends $14,000,000 for the LWVF.
    University Programs.--The Committee recommends the 
Department of State and USAID consider proposals from the 
following institutions, among others, through a transparent and 
competitive funding process: University of Georgia; University 
of Iowa; University of South Carolina; Utah State University; 
Temple University School of Law; Flathead Valley Community 
College; and University of Montana.
    Victims of Torture.--The Committee recommends $13,000,000 
for programs and activities that address the needs of victims 
of torture. The Committee recommends support for centers for 
victims of torture that provide services consistent with the 
goals of Public Law 106-87. An additional $7,100,000 is 
recommended for the U.N. Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture 
under the IO&P; account.
    Water.--The Committee recommends not less than $315,000,000 
from all accounts in this act for water sanitation and supply 
projects pursuant to Public Law 109-121. Funds should be used 
to provide safe water and sanitation in high priority 
countries, as described in Public Law 109-121, and increasing 
access to safe drinking water should continue to be the highest 
priority in the programming of these funds. The Committee 
intends that funds are used to support urban and rural water 
projects.
    The Committee directs relevant USAID offices and bureaus 
involved in water-related programs to coordinate on a regular 
basis.
    Women's Programs.--The Committee supports programs which 
directly enhance economic opportunities for very poor, poor and 
low-income women in developing countries, including to increase 
women-owned business development; property rights for women; 
women's access to financial services; women's ability to 
benefit from global trade; and improve women's employment 
benefits and conditions. Funds should also be used to provide 
technical assistance and capacity building for women's 
organizations.

                               COUNTRIES

    PRC.--The Committee recommends $20,000,000 for environment, 
governance, rule of law, and disaster preparedness programs in 
the PRC, and continues current restrictions relating to the 
export of satellites and prohibitions on assistance to the 
People's Liberation Army.
    Vietnam.--The Committee recommends $20,200,000 for 
assistance for Vietnam under the DA account, which is 
$5,000,000 above the request.

                                REPORTS

    Contracting.--The Committee directs USAID to submit a 
report not later than December 1, 2010 detailing all umbrella 
grants and IQCs issued during fiscal year 2010. The Committee 
also directs USAID to postpone awarding any new IQC's and 
umbrella grants until a new USAID Administrator is confirmed 
and has consulted with the Committee on the use of these 
funding mechanisms.
    Evaluations.--The Committee directs the USAID Administrator 
to submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations and 
Foreign Relations, not later than 180 days after enactment of 
this act, on USAID's program review and impact evaluation 
processes, to include the number of evaluations conducted over 
the previous fiscal year, the office or bureau that conducted 
the evaluation, the titles of those evaluations, the criteria 
used to choose subjects for evaluation, the methodologies used, 
and how the results of such evaluations are disseminated to 
USAID's staff. Without an analysis of what works and why, the 
Committee does not have confidence that assistance funds are 
achieving their intended development objectives.
    Small and Medium Enterprises.--The Committee directs the 
USAID Administrator to provide a report, not later than 90 days 
after enactment of this act, on data trends that assess 
performance of SMEs in developing countries that receive 
support from U.S. Government programs, and the impact such 
programs have on economic growth.

                               PROPOSALS

    The Committee is aware of proposals from the following 
organizations, which shall be considered in full and open 
competition, and in accordance with all applicable rules and

to counter the effects of drought and famine.

                   INTERNATIONAL DISASTER ASSISTANCE

Appropriations, 2009.................................... \1\$820,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................     880,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     855,000,000

\1\The enacted level includes $350,000,000 from Public Law 111-8, 
$200,000,000 from Public Law 110-252 and $270,000,000 from Public Law 
111-32.

    The Committee recommends $855,000,000 for International 
Disaster Assistance, which is $25,000,000 below the budget 
request.

                         TRANSITION INITIATIVES

Appropriations, 2009....................................     $50,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................     126,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      65,000,000

    The Committee recommends $65,000,000 for Transition 
Initiatives, which is $61,000,000 below the request. Additional 
funds requested for TI are appropriated instead under the 
Emergency Crises Fund.
    The Committee expects USAID to expand TI activities in 
Baluchistan and East of the Indus River in Pakistan, which were 
initiated in Public Law 111-32.

                         EMERGENCY CRISES FUND

Appropriations, 2009....................................................
Budget estimate, 2010...................................................
Committee recommendation................................    $100,000,000

    The Committee recommends $100,000,000 for the Emergency 
Crises Fund, a new fund which will enable the Secretary of 
State, in consultation with the USAID Administrator, to respond 
to unforeseen complex foreign crises, under certain conditions 
and after consultation with Congress.
    The budget request included $76,000,000 for a Rapid 
Response Fund under the TI account, and an additional 
$40,000,000 under the ESF account for a Stabilization Bridge 
Fund. The Committee supports providing the Secretary of State 
with flexibility to respond to unanticipated requirements, but 
has consolidated these requests within a new fund to provide 
greater efficiency and oversight by both the Department of 
State and the Congress.
    The Committee notes that the Department of State is 
establishing crisis prevention and response capabilities in 
order to assume most if not all of the functions currently 
funded by the Department of Defense under section 1207 of 
Public Law 109-163. Funds are provided in this act under the 
CSI, ECF, and TI accounts to support this effort. In order to 
prevent gaps in the U.S. Government's ability to act 
expeditiously to prevent crises, the Committee emphasizes that 
funding and authorities provided under the ECF and TI accounts 
may be utilized to carry out crisis prevention activities 
including in locations where no CSI deployment is required. The 
Committee intends the Departments of State and Defense to 
coordinate formulation and implementation of security and 
stabilization assistance, as appropriate, whether through the 
utilization of section 1207 or the new capabilities within the 
Department of State.

\1\Not available.

                             COUNTRY ISSUES

    Afghanistan.--The Committee is convinced that a key factor 
determining the outcome of reconstruction efforts in 
Afghanistan is the role of women, and intends that improving 
the status of women is a goal of all U.S. assistance programs 
in the country. The Committee recommends not less than 
$150,000,000 for assistance for Afghan women and girls, and 
continues provisions in Public Law 111-32 relating to women and 
girls.
    The Committee recommends $100,000,000 for the National 
Solidarity Program, which is in addition to $70,000,000 
provided for NSP in Public Law 111-32.
    The Committee is concerned with the continuing incidence of 
civilian casualties from coalition military operations in 
Afghanistan, which have reportedly caused some Afghans to join 
the Taliban. Investigations of these incidents by the U.S. 
military have not always been thorough. The Committee 
recommends $15,000,000 for continued support for the Afghan 
Civilian Assistance Program, which assists families and 
communities that have suffered losses as a result of the 
military operations. These funds are in addition to $12,000,000 
provided for ACAP in Public Law 111-32.
    Recognizing that the strength of the Taliban and other 
extremists depends on their persuasive and threatening 
messaging, and that the counterinsurgency effort will only 
succeed if the Government of Afghanistan can win the trust of 
the Afghan people, the Committee recommends $10,000,000 for 
strategic communications activities that highlight the 
constructive efforts of the Government of Afghanistan and its 
international partners to bring security, basic services, and 
rule of law to the Afghan people, and counter the extremists' 
efforts to recruit terrorists.
    Cambodia.--The Committee recognizes the importance of 
Cambodia's political opposition and civil society to Cambodia's 
democratic development, and notes the adverse impact the global 
economic crisis has had in Cambodia. The Committee is 
particularly concerned with a further weakening of these groups 
caused by decreasing donor support. The Committee requires 
USAID to submit a strategy for supporting civil society in 
Cambodia, and that priority be given to bolstering and 
strengthening indigenous NGOs involved in the promotion and 
protection of human rights, democracy and the rule of law. The 
Committee supports additional funding through NGOs to continue 
to improve the capacity of law enforcement and the judiciary to 
combat human trafficking, and to provide assistance to the 
victims.
    The Committee remains concerned with allegations of 
corruption and mismanagement at the Khmer Rouge Tribunal, and 
restricts a United States contribution on a certification by 
the Secretary of State that credible steps are being taken by 
the United Nations and the Government of Cambodia to address 
these concerns.
    The Committee supports the decentralization of power in 
Cambodia, as provided for in the 2001 Law on Khum/Sangkat 
Administrative Management. The Committee instructs the 
Secretary of the Treasury to direct the U.S. Executive 
Directors at each International Financial Institution to ensure 
that a significant portion of assistance provided for Cambodia 
is made in accordance with development plans established by 
Khum/Sangkat Councils, as appropriate, and are managed by such 
Councils independently and without interference from the 
central Government of Cambodia.
    Cyprus.--The Committee continues to support assistance for 
scholarships, administrative support of the scholarship 
program, bicommunal projects, and measures aimed at 
reunification of the island of Cyprus, reducing tension and 
promoting peace and cooperation. The Committee is aware of 
concerns that some projects on Cyprus may have been funded 
without advance consultation with the Government of Cyprus and 
recommends that such consultation occur whenever practicable in 
the interest of transparency in the allocation of funds. The 
Committee intends that with respect to the provision of 
assistance, the organizations implementing such assistance and 
the specific nature of that assistance shall not be subject to 
the prior approval of any foreign government.
    Democratic Republic of the Congo.--The Committee remains 
concerned with the incidence of sexual violence against women 
and girls in the DRC, and recommends $3,000,000 for USAID to 
expand activities that assist the victims.
    Haiti.--The Committee recommends a total of $282,393,000 
from titles III and IV of this act for assistance for Haiti, 
including $18,500,000 in INCLE funds, which is $25,049,000 
above the budget request. The Committee recommends continued 
support for programs and activities to reduce pre-trial 
detention, provide health care and sanitation, and make other 
improvements to the deplorable conditions in Haiti's prisons.
    Iraq.--The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for continued 
support for the Marla Ruzicka Iraqi War Victims Fund, which 
assists families and communities that suffer losses resulting 
from the military operations. As U.S. and coalition forces 
withdraw from Iraq, the Committee directs USAID to pursue 
options for future Iraqi management and support of this program 
to assist innocent victims, either through Iraqi NGOs or the 
government.
    The Committee supports the $90,000,000 budget request for 
democracy, human rights, and women's programs in Iraq.
    The Committee recommends not more than $50,000,000 for 
USAID's Ministerial Capacity Development program, which is 
$35,000,000 below the budget request, and believes that the 
Government of Iraq should support such training and development 
programs in the future.
    Lebanon.--The Committee provides $109,000,000 for 
assistance for Lebanon, of which not less than $10,000,000 is 
for scholarships for students in Lebanon with high financial 
need, including at American educational institutions. These 
funds are to be awarded through an open and competitive 
process.
    The Committee continues to support the work of the U.S. 
Forest Service in forest and wildlife conservation in Lebanon, 
and recommends $500,000 for these activities.
    Nepal.--The Committee recommends $27,000,000 for assistance 
for Nepal, of which not less than $1,500,000 should be made 
available to support capacity building of Nepali civil society 
organizations.
    North Korea.--No funds are provided in this act for energy-
related assistance for North Korea.
    The Committee recommends up to $4,000,000 to promote 
democracy, human rights and the development of a market economy 
in North Korea, as authorized by Public Law 110-346. Of this 
amount, $2,000,000 is for grants for such purposes, and 
$2,000,000 is to increase access to information inside North 
Korea. Such programs may include appropriate educational and 
cultural exchange programs with North Korean participants, to 
the extent not otherwise prohibited by law.
    Pakistan.--The Committee recommends continuing and 
expanding programs funded under DRL and USAID for programs and 
activities that support the development of independent media in 
Pakistan.
    The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for assistance through 
NGOs for civilians who suffer losses as a result of the 
military operations, and directs the Secretary of State to 
consult with the Committee prior to the obligation of funds.
    The Committee directs the Department of State and USAID, as 
appropriate, to support programs that address extremism within 
madrassas in Pakistan, to be awarded on a fully competitive 
basis.
    Philippines.--The Committee recommends a portion of ESF 
funds to support conflict resolution activities in Mindanao and 
to expand judicial training programs.
    Tibet.--The Committee recommends $7,500,000 for activities 
implemented by NGOs which preserve cultural traditions and 
promote sustainable development and environmental conservation 
in Tibetan communities in the Tibetan Autonomous Region and in 
other Tibetan communities in China. The Committee intends these 
funds to be awarded competitively to multiple grantees.
    Tunisia.--The Committee recommends $2,000,000 for 
assistance for Tunisia, which is $2,000,000 above the budget 
request, for programs and activities in southern Tunisia, and 
to promote respect for human rights.
    Vietnam.--The Committee recommends $3,000,000 for continued 
environmental remediation of dioxin contaminated sites and 
related health programs. The Committee notes that the United 
States and Vietnamese governments have worked cooperatively for 
many years to locate and identify remains of American MIAs 
since the war. There are also reportedly some 3 million 
Vietnamese MIAs, and the Committee recommends funding for 
technical and other assistance to the Government of Vietnam for 
the purpose of locating and identifying Vietnamese MIAs from 
both sides of the conflict.
    West Bank and Gaza.--The Committee continues current law 
restrictions on assistance for the West Bank and Gaza, as 
contained in Public Law 111-8 and Public Law 111-32.

                            GLOBAL PROGRAMS

    Conflict Diamonds.--The Committee recommends $3,000,000 to 
implement the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, including 
by strengthening the role and capacity of civil society groups 
in the Kimberley Process.
    Disability Programs.--The Committee recommends $5,000,000 
for disability programs, of which $2,500,000 should be made 
available for programs and activities administered by USAID 
through foreign missions to address the needs and protect and 
promote the rights of people with disabilities in developing 
countries, and $1,500,000 should be designated to support 
people with disabilities and disabled persons organizations in 
developing countries on issues of independent living, advocacy, 
education, and accessible transportation through partnerships 
with disability advocacy organizations that have expertise and 
experience in these areas. The Committee recommends 
continuation of the current practice that at least 25 percent 
of USAID foreign mission funds be dispersed in small grants. In 
addition, the Committee recommends $1,000,000 to develop, 
support and strengthen sports programs for people with 
disabilities in developing countries.
    MEPI.--The Committee recommends funds to continue regional 
programs traditionally managed by MEPI, of which $8,000,000 
should be used to continue a scholarship program to educate 
students from countries with significant Muslim populations, 
including at American educational institutions in those 
countries. These funds are to be awarded through an open and 
competitive process. The Secretary of State is directed to 
report to the Committee on coordination with other offices 
responsible for funding similar programs.
    Middle East Regional Cooperation Program.--The Committee 
recommends $5,000,000 for continued support for the MERC.
    Near East Regional Democracy.--The Committee recommends not 
less than $30,000,000 to expand access to information and 
communications through the Internet, to be awarded on an open 
and competitive basis that includes proof of actual performance 
in delivering access to large numbers of users living in closed 
societies that have hostile Internet environments. The 
Committee further expects that awards of the funds will be 
based on a showing that the applicant will, within 1 year of 
the date of the award, be able to generate sufficient capacity 
to provide Internet access to tens of millions of closed 
society residents in acutely hostile Internet environments. The 
Committee also notes the importance of the applicant's system 
being able to withstand countermeasures from closed society 
regimes.
    Reconciliation Programs.--The Committee recommends 
$25,000,000 for reconciliation programs and activities which 
bring together and facilitate direct communication between 
individuals of different ethnic, religious and political 
backgrounds in countries affected by civil strife and war, of 
which $9,000,000 is for such programs and activities in the 
Middle East. This global program seeks to promote 
understanding, mutual respect and reconciliation through the 
active participation, dialogue and problem solving of members 
of opposing groups.
    Trafficking in Persons.--The Committee recommends 
$12,000,000 for programs to prevent trafficking in persons 
consistent with Public Law 106-386.
    Volunteers for Prosperity.--The Committee is aware that the 
Volunteers for Prosperity program was authorized after the 
fiscal year 2010 budget request was finalized. The Committee 
recommends USAID support VFP, and directs USAID to consult with 
the Committee not later than 60 days after enactment of this 
act on the implementation of this program.
    Wheelchairs.--The Committee recommends $10,000,000 for 
wheelchair programs in developing countries. The Committee 
intends funding for wheelchair programs to be allocated through 
a fully open and competitive process based on merit. The 
Committee supports funding that provides quality, low-cost 
wheelchairs benefiting as many people as possible, and which 
encourages local initiative, utilizes appropriate technologies, 
and are sustainable.

                                REPORTS

    The Committee directs the Department of State and USAID, as 
instructed, to submit the following reports:
    Afghan Women and Girls.--The Committee directs the 
Secretary of State to submit a report not later than December 
1, 2010, detailing the uses of funds from all accounts in this 
act for programs to improve the status of Afghan women and 
girls, including to prevent discrimination and violence against 
women and girls and to assist the victims; provide economic and 
leadership opportunities; increase participation of women in

                             COUNTRY ISSUES

    Colombia.--The Committee continues to support substantial 
assistance for Colombia, and notes the progress made in 
improving security in many parts of the country. For fiscal 
year 2010, the Committee recommends a total of $509,495,000 for 
assistance for Colombia, including $199,000,000 under the ESF 
account, $1,695,000 under the IMET account, $53,805,000 under 
the FMF account, $248,500,000 under the INCLE account, and 
$6,495,900 under the NADR account. The Committee notes that the 
TI, MRA and NADR accounts contain notwithstanding authority, 
but any additional assistance from those accounts is subject to 
the Committee's regular notification procedures.
    The Committee is aware that United States assistance is 
helping Colombia build state presence in ungoverned territories 
through the Government of Columbia's Center for Coordination of 
Integrated Action. Achieving this goal will require the CCAI to 
increase civilian government agencies' participation in 
decisionmaking, funding, and on-the-ground presence, and to do 
more to address inter-agency coordination. CCAI will not 
succeed if, in practice, it is a mostly military effort. 
Reports of human rights abuses in CCAI zones, including forced 
displacement and increased paramilitary presence, should be 
investigated and punished.
    The Committee is concerned with the continuing influence of 
illegal drug cultivation, production and trafficking, and 
related corruption, throughout Colombian society. Despite 
significant United States assistance, the flow of large amounts 
of illicit drugs to the United States continues, and the 
violence associated with it plagues large areas of Colombia 
while it has also spread to other parts of Central America, 
Mexico, and the Caribbean. A measure of the continuing severity 
of the problem is the large number of Colombian refugees and 
IDPs fleeing drug-related violence. The Committee recommends 
additional assistance for these vulnerable groups.
    The Committee is concerned that the Colombian army has been 
implicated in a pattern of extra-judicial killings of 
civilians. While the Ministry of Defense has taken steps to 
prevent these crimes, few officers have been punished. There 
are also reports that the Presidential Intelligence Service 
[DAS] has engaged in illegal surveillance of human rights 
defenders, judges, journalists and others. The Committee 
continues restrictions on 30 percent of the military assistance 
for Colombian, and adds restrictions on assistance to the DAS.
    The Committee again recommends funding for the Fiscalia, 
Procuraduria, and Defensor del Pueblo to support efforts to 
investigate and hold accountable those responsible for 
violations of human rights. The Committee also recommends 
$8,000,000 under the INCLE account for continued support of 
USAID's human rights activities, which is equal to the fiscal 
year 2008 level, and expects these funds to be transferred 
promptly to USAID. The Committee requests to be consulted prior 
to the obligation of funds.
    Funds are allocated in the following table and subject to 
the requirements of section 7019 of this act:

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

    Guatemala.--The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for the 
CICIG to investigate illegal armed forces, clandestine criminal 
organizations and public corruption and collaborate with the 
Government of Guatemala in the investigation, prosecution and 
punishment of those responsible for such crimes, including drug 
trafficking. The Department of State, USAID and the Department 
of Justice should assist CICIG through the detail of FBI 
agents, prosecutors and forensics specialists, and also in 
determining the requirements for a special court with 
adequately vetted, protected and supported prosecutors and 
judges to address the most serious crimes involving organized 
crime, drug traffickers and public corruption.
    Iraq.--The Committee recommends $52,000,000 for programs 
and activities in Iraq, as requested, and understands that 
subsequent fiscal year budget requests under this account may 
increase as the Department of State assumes programmatic 
responsibility for the training of Iraqi security forces. None 
of the funds provided shall be used for construction costs.
    Merida Initiative.--
  --Central America.--The Committee recommends $75,000,000 
        under the Merida Initiative for the countries of 
        Central America, including Haiti and the Dominican 
        Republic, and $15,000,000 for continued support of the 
        Economic and Social Development Fund. The Committee is 
        concerned that the countries of Central America have 
        yet to provide clear strategies for utilizing 
        assistance under the Merida Initiative.
      The Committee supports the use of Merida Initiative funds 
        for youth violence prevention programs. The Committee 
        notes that Central American police forces suffer from 
        inadequate resources, poor training, corruption and 
        lack of accountability. In order to effectively counter 
        gang violence, extortion, drug trafficking and other 
        major crimes, these police forces need to strengthen 
        their institutional structures, including through 
        leadership development, management and planning, and 
        internal and external controls.
  --Mexico.--The Committee recommends $105,000,000 under the 
        INCLE account for continued support for Mexico as part 
        of the Merida Initiative, and notes that $354,000,000 
        requested for Mexico for fiscal year 2010 was included 
        in Public Law 111-32. The Committee continues to 
        support efforts to combat drug-related violence and 
        organized crime in Mexico, but remains skeptical that 
        such efforts can succeed if the traffic in guns from, 
        and the demand for drugs in, the United States continue 
        unabated. The Committee notes that the Merida 
        Initiative was designed as a 3-year program, but the 
        deeply rooted problems it seeks to address will take 
        far longer to solve. The Committee believes that 
        realistic goals and credible metrics for measuring 
        progress are necessary.
      The Committee is disappointed that the Government of 
        Mexico has not yet met the human rights requirements in 
        previous appropriations acts. Similar requirements are 
        included in this act. The Committee is particularly 
        concerned that the Mexican military and police forces 
        remain largely unaccountable to the judicial system. 
        Cases of extra-judicial killings, rape and other 
        egregious crimes allegedly committed by government 
        forces, including those investigated and recommended 
        for prosecution by the National Human Rights 
        Commission, remain unresolved.
    West Bank.--The Committee recommends $100,000,000 to 
continue training and equipping (non-lethal) of the National 
Security Forces associated with the Palestinian Authority.

                             PROGRAM ISSUES

    Demand Reduction Programs.--The Committee recommends 
$12,500,000 for demand reductions programs, an amount equal to 
the budget request. The Committee notes the importance of these 
programs in predominantly Muslim countries, and in reducing 
drug abuse by women.
    International Law Enforcement Academies.--The Committee 
recommends $36,700,000 for the ILEAs, which is $500,000 above 
the budget request. The Committee intends the additional funds, 
for a total of $4,500,000, to be used to support the ILEA in 
Roswell, New Mexico to expand student participation, purchase 
critical learning materials, replace outdated computer 
equipment, and implement distance learning programs.

                                REPORTS

    The Committee directs the Department of State, as 
instructed, to submit the following reports:
    Merida Initiative.--
  --Central America.--The Committee directs the Secretary of 
        State to submit a report not later than 45 days after 
        enactment of this act, for each of the countries of 
        Central America receiving assistance under the Merida 
        Initiative, including Haiti and the Dominican Republic. 
        The report should detail the threats or problems to be 
        addressed, realistic goals and planned actions to 
        achieve them (including planned uses of U.S. 
        assistance), amounts to be invested by the countries 
        themselves, and expected results.
  --Mexico.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State, not 
        later than 180 days after enactment of this act, to 
        submit a report detailing the uses of Merida funds in 
        Mexico, progress to date, any planned adjustments in 
        the uses of funds, and post-Merida plans including 
        anticipated funding requirements for Mexico and the 
        Central American countries for the next 3 fiscal years.
  --Mexican Federal Registry of Police Personnel.--In fiscal 
        year 2008, the Congress provided $3,000,000 for 
        technical and other assistance to enable the Government 
        of Mexico to create a unified national police registry. 
        The Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit 
        a report not later than 45 days after enactment of this 
        act, detailing the extent to which the Mexican Federal 
        Registry of Police Personnel is operational and 
        effective, particularly for vetting police at the 
        national, state and municipal levels to prevent 
        rehiring from one force to another after dismissal for 
        corruption or other causes. The report should also 
        describe mechanisms in place to investigate, sanction 
        or retrain police who do not pass performance 
        evaluations implemented through police evaluation 
        centers (centros de control de confianza).

                               PROPOSALS

    The Committee is aware of proposals from the following 
organizations, which shall be considered in full and open 
competition, and in accordance with all applicable rules and 
regulations:
    Equitas.--For continued support of forensic work to locate 
and identify victims of the armed conflict in Colombia.
    National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.--To 
prevent crimes against children on the Internet.

       Related Programs......................................
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Committee supports NADR programs and activities that 
directly contribute to U.S. security in a targeted and cost 
efficient manner, and which provide assistance to countries 
severely contaminated with unexploded ordnance. The Committee 
encourages the administration to continue to improve the 
coordination of international counterterrorism programs among 
and between relevant Federal agencies, and to submit future 
budget requests under the Department of State and USAID's 
jurisdiction for such activities in a more clear and concise 
manner.
    Biosecurity Engagement Program.--The Committee recommends 
$37,000,000 for the BEP, $2,000,000 above the budget request, 
and recommends not less than $6,000,000 to continue biological 
threat reduction assistance programs in Pakistan.
    Humanitarian Demining.--The Committee directs the Secretary 
of State to consult with the Committee on the appropriate 
criteria for allocating funds for humanitarian demining and 
other UXO removal programs.
    Iraqi Scientist Engagement Program.--The Committee supports 
the $615,000 requested for this program, but believes the 
Government of Iraq should fully bear this cost and encourages 
the Secretary of State to secure reimbursement from the 
Government of Iraq for this program.
    ITF.--The Committee recommends $12,000,000 for the ITF, and 
notes this would bring the total U.S. assistance for the ITF to 
more than $140,000,000. The Committee recognizes the ITF's 
success and that it is nearing completion of its mission to 
make the countries of southeastern Europe mine-safe. The 
Committee intends any future U.S. assistance for the ITF after 
fiscal year 2010 to be provided through an open and competitive 
process.
    Laos.--The Committee notes that Laos is among the countries 
most severely contaminated with UXO due to tens of millions of 
U.S. cluster munitions and bombs dropped during the Vietnam 
War. These remnants of war have caused tens of thousands of 
casualties, including children, and hundreds of new casualties 
each year, yet Laos has received only a small fraction of total 
U.S. assistance for UXO removal. The Committee directs the 
Department to provide not less than $6,000,000 for UXO removal 
in Laos in fiscal year 2010, and to plan for similar or higher 
levels of funding in future years.

                                 REPORT

    Small Arms/Light Weapons.--The Committee supports increased 
funding for programs to destroy small arms and light weapons, 
and directs the Secretary of State to submit a report to the 
Committee not later than 45 days after enactment of this act 
detailing the proposed uses of funds.

                    MIGRATION AND REFUGEE ASSISTANCE

Appropriations, 2009...................................\1\$1,671,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................   1,480,444,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,677,800,000

\1\The enacted level includes $931,000,000 from Public Law 111-8, 
$350,000,000 from Public Law 110-252 and $390,000,000 from Public Law 
111-32.

    The Committee recommends $1,677,800,000 for Migration and 
Refugee Assistance, which is $197,356,000 above the request.
    The Committee is concerned with the suffering of all 
refugees and IDPs, and notes that refugees and IDPs with 
disabilities have particular difficulties obtaining services. 
The Committee directs the Secretary of State and USAID 
Administrator to work with other governments and humanitarian 
organizations to ensure that assistance programs take into 
account the special needs of persons with disabilities and that 
they are included in the design and implementation of programs.
    Burma.--The Committee remains concerned with refugees and 
IDPs in Burma and Thailand, and recommends the Secretary of 
State provide assistance to meet these needs in a timely 
manner.
    Colombia.--The Committee recommends additional assistance 
for Colombian IDPs and refugees.
    Migrants to Israel.--The Committee recommends $25,000,000 
for migrants to Israel, the amount requested, to be awarded 
through an open and competitive process. According to the 
Department of State, the number of migrants to Israel has 
declined from approximately 184,000 in 1990 to 7,300 in 2008. 
No funds may be used to support migrants who reside in 
settlements or outposts in the West Bank. The Committee 
supports assistance consistent with the conditions that have 
applied to the program since its inception in 1973 that all 
funds be spent in Israel.
    North Korea.--The Committee recommends that assistance be 
made available for North Korean refugees, as authorized by 
Public Law 110-346.
    The Committee is disappointed with the low number of North 
Korean refugees that have resettled in the United States since 
the enactment of Public Law 110-346, which directs the 
Department of State to facilitate such resettlements. The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to significantly 
increase the number of resettlements, consistent with the law.
    Refugee Resettlement.--The Committee is concerned with the 
lack of sufficient resources for Iraqi and other refugees 
resettling in the United States due to funding shortfalls of 
resettlement organizations caused by the financial crises, and 
directs the Department of State to consult with the Committee 
on efforts to address this need.
    Tibetan Refugees.--The Committee supports assistance for 
Tibetan refugees who have fled their homeland and are in 
transit in Nepal or resettled in India.

                                 REPORT

    North Korea.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State 
to submit a report, not later than 60 days after enactment of 
this act, detailing the measures and improvements to be taken 
by the Department of State to facilitate a significant increase 
in the admission and resettlement of North Korean refugees to 
the United States.

     UNITED STATES EMERGENCY REFUGEE AND MIGRATION ASSISTANCE FUND

Appropriations, 2009....................................     $40,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................      75,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      75,000,000

    The Committee recommends $75,000,000 for United States 
Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance, which is equal to 
the budget request.

                          Independent Agencies


                              PEACE CORPS

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2009....................................    $340,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................     373,440,000
Committee recommendation................................     373,440,000

    The Committee recommends $373,440,000 for the Peace Corps, 
which is equal to the budget request and $33,440,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 level.
    The Committee strongly supports the mission of the Peace 
Corps, which can be as relevant today in promoting American 
values abroad as it was when it was founded almost a half 
century ago. But the world has changed significantly since 
then, and the Peace Corps needs to adapt to the 21st century. 
Past efforts by the Committee to encourage the Peace Corps to 
reform and make better use of resources have been ignored. A 
new Director with a new vision, who recognizes the need for 
reform, supports transparency and seeks a constructive 
relationship with Congress, is urgently needed.
    The Committee is aware that some have called for a large 
increase in funding above the amount requested by the President 
for fiscal year 2010, in order to send volunteers to new 
countries. Very few of such countries are safe enough or 
otherwise ready to host volunteers, and there are hundreds of 
volunteers currently serving in countries with little if any 
strategic importance to the United States who could be used 
more effectively. At a time of intense pressures on a limited 
budget, each volunteer costs the U.S. Government $50,000 a 
year. Each dose of vaccine for measles, which threatens 
hundreds of millions of children in poor countries and 
needlessly kills 200,000 children annually, costs a few 
dollars. This is but one of the many difficult funding choices 
the Committee faced, yet its recommendation for the Peace Corps 
is the largest percentage increase in the Peace Corps' budget 
since 1993. The Committee believes that reform, not dramatic 
increases in funding in a single year, is the Peace Corps' most 
urgent need.
    The Committee expects to recommend additional increases in 
funding to support the goal of doubling the Peace Corps, 
including sending more volunteers to countries with large 
Muslim populations, once it is clear that a new Director is 
providing the leadership the Peace Corps needs.

                    MILLENNIUM CHALLENGE CORPORATION

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2009....................................    $875,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010...................................   1,425,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     950,000,000

    The Committee recommends $950,000,000 for the Millennium 
Challenge Corporation, which is $475,000,000 below the request 
and $75,000,000 above the fiscal year 2009 level. Not more than 
$95,000,000 shall be used for administrative expenses.
    The Committee expects the MCC to support new compacts 
currently under development with Jordan, Malawi and the 
Philippines with fiscal year 2010 funding, if eligibility 
criteria are met.
    In Public Law 111-32, the Committee provided the Secretary 
of State with authority to reprogram MCC funding to address the 
global financial crisis before allocating ESF assistance for 
this purpose, and continues this authority in this act.
    The Committee notes that the fiscal year 2010 budget 
request for the MCC is more fully justified than in previous 
fiscal years and appreciates the Corporation's efforts to plan 
strategically.
    The Committee supports the MCC's efforts to address pre-
implementation and development costs prior to the start of a 
compact, and believes these efforts will assist the Corporation 
in disbursing compact funds more effectively. The Committee 
remains concerned with the projected size of compacts and 
questions the MCC's ability to effectively disburse such large 
sums within 5 years.
    The Committee supports the MCC Board of Directors' decision 
to partially terminate assistance to Nicaragua and to suspend 
funding for Armenia due to failure to adhere to the MCC's 
eligibility criteria, and appreciates MCC's adherence to its 
core principles. As the MCC's availability of funds has 
increased due to the suspension and termination of these 
compacts, the Committee recommends the MCC re-obligate funds 
for use for new compacts requested in fiscal year 2010 after 
consultation with the Committee.
    The Committee notes that section 605(e) of the Millennium 
Challenge Act of 2003 restricts the use of MCC funds for 
military assistance and training. While the act is silent on 
dual-use issues, such as posed by the airport renovation 
project in Mali, the Committee is concerned that dual-use 
investments could be used in contravention of U.S. national 
security interests should there be a change in government or 
political unrest in an MCC compact country. To provide 
clarification on this issue, the Committee prohibits the use of 
MCC funds for any military assistance and training, including 
for dual-use purposes. The Committee considers this 
clarification to be consistent with the intent of section 
605(e) which does not provide any exceptions allowing MCC 
economic assistance funds to be commingled with other funds 
(such as national funds or military assistance funds). The 
Committee directs the MCC to consult with the Committee on any 
ongoing MCC projects that may be of a dual-use nature.

                                REPORTS

    The Committee directs the MCC to provide a report to the 
Committee not later than 90 days after enactment of this act on 
the total funding and proposed uses of funding de-obligated 
from Compacts that the Board has terminated because the country 
failed to meet the MCC's governance standards.
    Funding will not be obligated for the MCC until the Chief 
Executive Officer of the Corporation provides a report to the 
Committee listing proposed candidate countries to receive 
assistance, the level of assistance proposed for each country, 
a description of proposed activities, and the U.S. implementing 
agencies. The Committee expects the MCC to reimburse USAID for 
expenses incurred supporting MCC activities.

\1\Not available.

    Human Rights Vetting.--The Committee supports the 
Department of State's efforts to monitor the use of U.S. 
military training and equipment provided to foreign security 
forces, but is concerned that the vetting process is uneven 
among U.S. Embassies and falls short in some countries where 
the military or police have a history of human rights 
violations. The Committee also notes that the budget request 
includes FMF assistance for eight countries in Africa that have 
not received FMF in recent years. The Committee recommends 
transfer of not less than $2,000,000 to DRL for training and 
other personnel resources to strengthen the vetting process, 
which continues an initiative begun in fiscal year 2008.

                             COUNTRY ISSUES

    Indonesia.--The Committee notes the progress Indonesia has 
made in strengthening democracy, combating extremism, and 
addressing other challenges including illegal logging. Military 
reform has lagged behind, however. The Committee recommends 
$20,000,000 for assistance for Indonesia, which is $4,300,000 
above the fiscal year 2009 level and equal to the budget 
request. Of this amount, $2,000,000 is withheld from obligation 
until the Secretary of State reports in writing to the 
Committees on Appropriations pursuant to section 7071(d) of 
this act on--
  --Steps taken by the Government of Indonesia to revise the 
        Code of Military Justice, Uniform Criminal Code and 
        other relevant statutes, to permit trials of members of 
        the military alleged to have committed violations of 
        internationally recognized human rights in civilian 
        courts and to deny promotion, suspend from active 
        service, and/or pursue prosecution of military officers 
        indicted for serious crimes, and to refine further the 
        mission of the Armed Forces and develop an appropriate 
        national defense budget to carry out that mission;
  --Efforts by the Armed Forces to cooperate with civilian 
        judicial authorities and with international efforts to 
        resolve cases of violations of internationally 
        recognized human rights;
  --Efforts by the Government to implement reforms that 
        increase the transparency and accountability of the 
        Armed Forces' operations and financial management and 
        concrete steps taken to achieve divestment of all 
        military businesses; and
  --Whether the Government of Indonesia is allowing public 
        access to Papua, including foreign diplomats, NGOs, and 
        journalists.
    Philippines.--The Committee commends efforts by the 
Government of the Philippines to prevent extra-judicial 
executions, and notes that the incidence of such crimes has 
fallen. The Committee believes that further efforts are needed, 
particularly accountability for such crimes to promote respect 
for the rule of law.
    The Committee recommends $33,000,000 for assistance for the 
Philippines, which is $3,000,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
level and $14,350,000 above the budget request. Of this amount, 
$2,000,000 may not be obligated until the Secretary of State 
reports in writing to the Committees on Appropriations pursuant 
to section 7071(i) of this act that--
  --The Government of the Philippines is continuing to take 
        effective steps to implement the recommendations of the 
        United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extra-judicial, 
        Summary or Arbitrary Executions, to include 
        prosecutions and convictions for extra-judicial 
        executions, sustaining the decline in the number of 
        extra-judicial executions, addressing allegations of a 
        death squad in Davao City, and strengthening government 
        institutions working to eliminate extra-judicial 
        executions;
  --The Government of the Philippines is implementing a policy 
        of promoting military personnel who demonstrate 
        professionalism and respect for internationally 
        recognized human rights, and is investigating, 
        prosecuting, and punishing military personnel and 
        others who have been credibly alleged to have violated 
        such rights; and
  --The Armed Forces of the Philippines do not have a policy 
        of, and are not engaging in, acts of violence or 
        intimidation against members of legal organizations who 
        advocate for human rights.
    Vietnam.-- The Committee recognizes the shared security 
interests of the United States and Vietnam in Southeast Asia, 
and encourages increases in FMF assistance for Vietnam in 
subsequent fiscal years.
    Yemen.--The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for assistance 
for Yemen, which is $5,000,000 above the budget request.

                                REPORTS

    Human Rights Vetting.--The Committee directs the Department 
of State to submit a report not later than 90 days after 
enactment of this act detailing the appropriate number of 
Embassy personnel to carry out vetting procedures under the 
Leahy amendment in each country receiving IMET or FMF 
assistance. The Department should include any criteria used to 
determine the appropriate number of personnel, including 
assistance levels and the incidence of human rights concerns.
    Morocco.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State to 
submit a report not later than 45 days after enactment of this 
act, detailing steps taken by the Government of Morocco in the 
previous 12 months to continue to make progress on human 
rights, and whether it is allowing all persons to advocate 
freely their views regarding the status and future of the 
Western Sahara through the exercise of their rights to peaceful 
expression and association, and to document violations of human 
rights in the territory without harassment.

         DISCLOSURE OF CONGRESSIONALLY DIRECTED SPENDING ITEMS

    The Constitution vests in the Congress the power of the 
purse. The Committee believes strongly that Congress should 
make the decisions on how to allocate the people's money.
    As defined in Rule XLIV of the Standing Rules of the 
Senate, the term ``congressional directed spending item'' means 
a provision or report language included primarily at the 
request of a Senator, providing, authorizing, or recommending a 
specific amount of discretionary budget authority, credit 
authority, or other spending authority for a contract, loan, 
loan guarantee, grant, loan authority, or other expenditure 
with or to an entity, or targeted to a specific State, locality 
or congressional district, other than through a statutory or 
administrative, formula-driven, or competitive award process.
    For each item, a Member is required to provide a 
certification that neither the Member nor the Senator's 
immediate family has a pecuniary interest in such 
congressionally directed spending item. Such certifications are 
available to the public on the website of the Senate Committee 
on Appropriations (www.appropriations.senate.gov/senators.cfm).
    Neither the Committee recommendation nor this report 
contains any congressionally directed spending items, limited 
tax benefits nor limited tariff benefits as defined in rule 
XLIV.
