                              INTRODUCTION

    The Committee notes that governmentwide efforts to reduce 
the Federal deficit require cuts in operations and programs 
funded by this act. The Committee has also taken further steps 
to reduce wasteful and unnecessary spending.

                             Reducing Costs

    The Federal agencies administering funds appropriated by 
this act are directed to regularly review all costs associated 
with operations and programs to determine their necessity, 
priority, and effectiveness. All programs, except for 
humanitarian relief and recovery purposes, should be designed 
to be sustained by host country governments or civil society. 
Programs that are failing to perform or meet sustainability 
guidelines, or that have required excessive overhead or 
security costs, should be modified or discontinued.
    Funding for representation and entertainment expenses at 
the Department of State and other agencies are reduced below 
the levels requested by the administration, and section 7020(a) 
of this act clarifies the intended uses of such funds. The 
Committee directs the Department and agencies to achieve 
further savings by reducing the cost of executive meetings, 
ceremonies, and conferences, and curtailing commemorative and 
promotional items such as t-shirts, hats, mugs, pins, coins, 
tote bags, globes, and key chains.
    Section 7051(b) directs the Federal agencies funded by this 
act to report to their respective Office of Inspector General 
the cost of participation in domestic and international 
conferences that exceed $20,000.
    Cost Savings and Efficiencies.--The GAO's ``2012 Annual 
Report on Opportunities to Reduce Duplication, Overlap and 
Fragmentation, Achieve Savings, and Enhance Revenue'' (GAO-12-
342SP) identified several Department of State and USAID 
programs that could be modified to reduce duplication, improve 
coordination, and achieve savings. The Committee directs the 
Secretary of State and USAID Administrator to submit a joint 
report to the Committee not later than 90 days after enactment 
of this act on the status of implementation of the following 
GAO recommendations:
          Stabilization, Reconstruction, and Humanitarian 
        Assistance.--The GAO found that overlap between the 
        Departments of Defense and State and USAID assistance 
        programs is not limited to Iraq and Afghanistan. For 
        example, the Department of Defense and USAID have each 
        provided basic medical care in Yemen, built schools in 
        Azerbaijan, and rehabilitated water wells in Pakistan. 
        The GAO recommends that these Departments and USAID 
        develop a common framework for carrying out their 
        respective responsibilities, including a shared 
        database to post information about humanitarian and 
        development assistance outside of wartime or disaster 
        environments.
          Training To Identify Fraudulent Documents.--The GAO 
        found that seven different Federal entities within 
        three Federal agencies provide training to foreign 
        government officials to detect fraudulent travel 
        documents and often train the same groups, such as 
        immigration officers and law enforcement officials. The 
        Department of State's Bureau of Counterterrorism does 
        not know how many agencies provide fraudulent travel 
        document training to foreign officials, and there is no 
        mechanism to coordinate this type of training. The GAO 
        recommends that the Secretary of State develop a 
        mechanism to improve coordination among agencies that 
        are conducting this training, which the Committee 
        endorses.
          Overseas Administrative Services.--The GAO found that 
        greater participation in ICASS increases economies of 
        scale but that in 2011 about one-third of the agencies 
        opted to obtain services outside of ICASS. While most 
        agencies indicated they provide services at a lower 
        cost than ICASS, they could not provide data or 
        analysis to confirm this assertion.
          The GAO also found that the Department of State has 
        not continued to implement measures to reduce the 
        number of U.S. overseas ICASS staff, and since 2007 no 
        non-Department of State ICASS providers have been 
        established at individual posts to offer potentially 
        more efficient ICASS service providers.
    Energy Audits and Savings.--The Committee is concerned that 
the Department of State, USAID, Peace Corps, and other agencies 
funded by this act have not taken sufficient steps to improve 
energy efficiency at overseas posts. Technological innovations 
and common sense practices could save taxpayer dollars and 
reduce waste overseas, just as they can domestically. Section 
7034(v) requires such agencies to conduct updated environmental 
assessments and water and energy audits of overseas post 
operations, including staff housing, to assess consistency with 
Federal energy efficiency standards and environmental practices 
such as improving water efficiency, reducing waste through 
recycling, composting organic materials, and taking full 
advantage of efficiency technologies in lighting, heating, 
ventilation and air-conditioning, ``right-sizing'' vehicle 
fleets, trip pooling, use of bicycles and public transport, and 
improving the stewardship of electronic equipment. Any 
assessment or audit findings of a shortfall in such practices 
shall be corrected by implementation of the recommendations to 
meet, at a minimum, the targets for Federal building energy 
efficiency and environmental sustainability mandated by the 
Energy Independence and Security Act, 2007, and Executive Order 
13514. The Committee directs all agencies funded by this act to 
submit reports not later than September 30, 2013, detailing the 
findings of such assessments and audits, a plan, including 
steps taken, to implement such recommendations, and a 
comparison of such findings with the targets for Federal 
building energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. 
The Committee directs USAID, Peace Corps, and the other 
agencies to consult with the Department of State's Office of 
Building Operations about implementing such recommendations for 
overseas posts.

                  Congressional Budget Justifications

    The Committee remains concerned with the content and format 
of the Department of State's and USAID's CBJ documents, which 
should be designed for the Committee to efficiently evaluate 
the resource requirements and proposals requested by the 
administration while minimizing extraneous material. The 
Committee appreciates the significant time and effort devoted 
to preparing the CBJs. However, as in past years, the fiscal 
year 2013 CBJs contain a large amount of wordy text that sheds 
little light on how funds will achieve specific objectives, and 
dollar amounts in tables often do not match the text except at 
the account level. This has necessitated multiple requests for 
additional information, which is inefficient and unnecessarily 
delays the Committee's work. In an effort to improve the CBJs' 
usefulness, the Committee directs the Secretary of State and 
USAID Administrator to consult with the Committee on the 
content and format of the fiscal year 2014 CBJs.
    The Committee is also concerned that the Department of 
State's budget formulation and strategic planning processes are 
not coordinated to ensure that strategic priorities are 
adequately resourced and the budget request levels proposed for 
each office and program reflect and support the Department's 
priorities. The Committee notes that the Department is 
reorganizing the budget, finance, and strategic planning 
offices, and urges the Department to ensure that the 
reorganization results in improved integration of the 
Department's strategic planning and budget formulation process.
    While the Committee understands that performance data is 
required by the Government Performance and Results Act for 
inclusion in the CBJ, timely budget information that is 
clearly, concisely, and accurately presented must be the 
priority. The Committee directs the Department of State, USAID, 
and other agencies funded by this act to submit CBJs within 4 
weeks of the release of the President's fiscal year 2014 budget 
request. The Committee also directs the Department of State, 
USAID, and other agencies to include detailed information on 
all reimbursable agreements and significant uses of the Economy 
Act.
    Department of State and USAID operating expense accounts 
are appropriated with 2-year availability to provide 
flexibility for new or complex programs and procurement 
sensitive programs. However, the Committee intends the 
Department and USAID to request funding for other costs, 
including salaries and related expenses, in the fiscal year 
that it is to be expended. The Committee also directs the 
Department and USAID to include in their spend plans a 
justification for any funding that is planned to be executed in 
the fiscal year after it is appropriated, and to include 
specific detail and justification in the CBJ for funding 
requested with 2-year availability.
    The Committee directs the Department of State and any other 
agency that utilizes a working capital fund to include in the 
CBJ the total budgetary resources for the offices that use a 
WCF. The CBJ shall also include a table on WCF resources that 
will serve as the control level for reprogramming and transfer 
purposes.

              Definition of Program, Project, and Activity

    For purposes of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
Control Act of 1985 (Public Law 99-177), as amended, with 
respect to appropriations contained in this act the term 
``program, project, and activity'' shall mean any item for 
which a dollar amount is specified in this report or this act. 
In addition, the definition of PPA in section 7023 shall apply 
to the accounts listed in that section.
    In carrying out any Presidential sequestration, the 
Department of State, USAID, and other agencies funded by this 
act shall conform to the definition for PPA described above.

             Definition of Regular Notification Procedures

    The Committee includes language in this act making certain 
actions, such as obligations of funds, ``subject to the regular 
notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations.'' 
This language requires a separate notification to the Committee 
15 days prior to the proposed obligation of funds or other 
action that is the subject of this special notification 
requirement, regardless of what may be contained in an agency's 
CBJ or in the operating and spend plans required in section 
7076. Thus, such budget justification documents, operating and 
spend plans do not suffice as justification for purposes of 
satisfying the special notification requirement.

                        Reprogramming Guidelines

    The Committee directs the Department of State and other 
agencies funded by this act to notify the Committee of 
reprogramming of funds as required by sections 7015 and 7019 at 
the most detailed level of either the CBJ or the report 
accompanying this act, and the Committee expects to be notified 
of any significant departure from the CBJ or of any commitment 
that will require significant funding in future years. The 
Committee directs that staffing levels and future year impacts 
of reprogrammings be included with the notification.
    Section 7076 requires operating and spend plans to be 
submitted not later than 45 days after enactment of this act. 
The Committee expects operating plans to include data for the 
prior fiscal year, budget request, congressional action, 
rescissions, and the proposed operating plan level, and to 
include WCF resources, as appropriate. The Committee directs 
the Department of State and other agencies to provide quarterly 
updates of salary and benefits costs and on-board staffing 
levels (employees and contractors).
    The Committee is disappointed by the absence of useful 
information in prior fiscal year spend plans. Rather than 
plans, these documents would more aptly be described as cursory 
recitations of broadly stated goals, as they contain dollar 
amounts only at the account level and text that leaves the 
reader to wonder how funds will be used to achieve specific 
objectives. The Department of State is directed to consult with 
the Committee on the format and content of future operating and 
spend plans.
    The Committee is concerned that reprogrammings of funds 
often occurs late in the fiscal year and directs the Department 
of State, USAID, and other agencies to submit reprogramming 
requests not later than July 31, 2013, absent a compelling 
justification.

                    Reporting Requirement Guidelines

    All reports required by the Committee are due 90 days after 
enactment of this act except those with a specific date 
otherwise indicated. To save paper and printing costs, the 
Committee directs that only one copy of reports, congressional 
notifications, and correspondence be jointly addressed to the 
chairs of the Committee and subcommittee, and one copy jointly 
addressed to the ranking members of the Committee and 
subcommittee. Reports required by the Committee may also be 
electronically transmitted.
    The Committee directs that the Department of State, USAID, 
BBG, MCC, African Development Foundation, and Inter-American 
Foundation no longer send to the Committee the quarterly, semi-
annual, or annual reports from their respective OIG, as these 
documents are already received by the Committee directly from 
the OIG. Instead, the Committee directs these agencies to 
notify the Committee by email or letter that their OIG has sent 
such reports.

                Improving Humanitarian Aid Effectiveness

    The Committee is increasingly concerned with the growing 
number and severity of humanitarian crises that cause 
widespread loss of life and property damage, and the burden 
they are placing on national budgets and international donors. 
Triggered by conflict, natural disasters, pandemics, food and 
water insecurity, and population displacement, the amount of 
official humanitarian aid from the United States and other 
donors reportedly exceeded $9,700,000,000 in 2011. The 
increasing demand for humanitarian services, escalating costs, 
and budget constraints underline the need for improved 
efficiency and effectiveness in targeting such aid.
    The Committee recognizes that greater accountability to 
intended beneficiaries will help ensure better quality and 
effectiveness in the way resources are used. Yet there are 
significant weaknesses in collecting beneficiary feedback and 
acting on it, despite some progress in increasing awareness of 
the importance of accountability to beneficiaries.
    The Committee includes a new provision, section 7034(p), to 
enhance the effectiveness of humanitarian aid through a 
continuous and accurate flow of feedback data, obtained 
independently. Such feedback will ensure that both aid agencies 
and donors have a clearer understanding of the perceptions of 
affected populations, whether the aid they receive is relevant 
to their needs, how much they trust the people helping them, 
and whether they find it worthwhile to provide feedback. When 
reported to Congress and published, feedback data of this kind, 
which provides the basis to compare and contrast the perceived 
performance of aid providers, may offer an incentive to turn 
the principle of accountability to beneficiaries into practical 
improvements on the ground and cost savings.

                        Strategic Considerations

    The Committee recognizes that the winding down of United 
States military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan require 
adjustments in economic and security assistance. The Committee 
expects future budget requests to be significantly reduced for 
these countries, as program implementation is impacted by U.S. 
military and civilian personnel reductions, restructuring 
activities resulting from smaller in-country footprints, and 
the large amounts of unexpended funding that currently exists 
for these countries. Further, the Committee notes the rise of 
nationalism which directly impacts bilateral relations and, in 
the case of Iraq and Pakistan, results in the suspension of 
programs.
    The Committee supports the administration's strategic pivot 
toward Asia and recommends funding above the budget request to 
implement programs that further United States interests in that 
region. The Committee is aware of the PRC's interests in 
extending influence throughout Asia, including in the South 
China Sea which is a potential flashpoint for confrontation 
between the PRC and its Asian neighbors.
    Additional funds are similarly recommended for programs 
that further United States interests in Africa and Central and 
South America. The Committee again recognizes the geostrategic 
interests of the PRC in these regions, particularly in natural 
resource-rich countries.
    The fiscal year 2013 budget request did not include funding 
under the Assistance for Europe, Eurasia, and Central Asia 
heading, but the Committee recognizes that the countries in 
this region remain important economic and security partners for 
the United States. The Committee includes assistance for 
countries formerly funded under this heading under the GHP, 
ESF, and INCLE headings, at levels comparable to fiscal year 
2012.

                      Countries of Special Concern

    The Committee notes that since September 11, 2001, the 
United States has spent more than $66,800,000,000 on civilian 
assistance programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq to 
support counterterrorism/counterinsurgency efforts. 
Nonetheless, the threat of terrorism persists and is found in 
other countries and regions.
    This assistance has achieved significant gains in some 
sectors, but progress has too often been limited by vaguely 
defined and unrealistic goals, exorbitant security costs, 
contractor fraud and mismanagement, large expenditures on 
infrastructure that cannot be sustained, and unreliable host 
country governments. Many of the programs and activities funded 
by the Department of State and USAID were initiated or 
encouraged by the Department of Defense within a 
counterinsurgency context, and focused on short-term impact 
rather than long-term developmental sustainability. The 
Committee supports continuing efforts to solidify gains and 
maximize Afghanistan's and Iraq's chances of emerging from 
years of war more democratic, just, and stable than before, but 
has set funding ceilings for operations and programs in these 
countries, as noted below.

                              AFGHANISTAN

    Operations.--The Committee recommends $1,642,276,000 for 
Department of State, including for Worldwide Security 
Protection, and $200,800,000 for USAID operations in 
Afghanistan, and notes that a total of $142,000,000 in prior 
fiscal year funds will carry over for Department of State 
operations into fiscal year 2013.
    The Committee supports the administration's plan to reduce 
government and contract personnel in that country, including 
the downsizing of civilian provincial and sub-provincial 
presence, and expects Embassy Kabul to continuously conduct 
rightsizing exercises to ensure that a minimal, but 
appropriate, number of personnel remain in country. While the 
Committee sets a funding ceiling for the costs of operations 
and personnel in Afghanistan, waiver authority is included to 
allow the administration to respond to extraordinary, 
unforeseen contingencies that endanger human health or welfare.
    The Committee appreciates the necessity to maintain a 
diplomatic presence outside of Kabul in secure facilities, 
particularly given regional geopolitical considerations, and 
endorses collocation with other United States Government 
agencies to the maximum extent practicable. The Department of 
State should utilize existing facilities in maintaining this 
diplomatic presence, especially in Kandahar and Mazar-e-Sharif. 
The Committee does not recommend funding for construction of a 
new facility in Kandahar, and understands that the Department 
has $111,000,000 available in carryover balances for the 
renovation and upgrade of an existing facility.
    Air Mobility.--The Committee recommends $233,247,000 to 
continue air mobility for civilian United States Government 
personnel in Afghanistan, and expects rationalization of 
Department of State and USAID air operations in a timely 
manner. The Committee understands that this funding level 
sustains the current capacity of aviation assets, including 
aircraft acquired to replace USAID-leased aircraft. Section 
7004(e) permits the Department of State to maintain and 
continue aviation capacity that is no larger than the capacity 
on the date of enactment of this act. The Department of State 
should consider the most cost-effective options for the 
construction and maintenance of air hubs, which should be 
considered temporary facilities. Section 7052(c)(1) provides 
authority to the Department of State to collect from private 
individuals the cost of travel on Embassy Air in Afghanistan 
through the Working Capital Fund.
    Assistance.--The Committee recommends $1,580,750,000 for 
assistance for Afghanistan, and notes unobligated balances as 
of March 31, 2012, totaling $3,684,464,000.
    The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for the Afghan 
Civilian Assistance Program for continued assistance for 
individuals and communities that suffer losses as a result of 
military operations. The Committee directs USAID to consult 
with the Committee on the use of funds prior to obligation.
    The Committee recommends not less than $5,000,000 for the 
Department of State's Office of Global Women's Issues for small 
capacity-building grants for Afghan women NGOs to enhance the 
economic and political participation and leadership of women, 
and to support initiatives to protect the rights of Afghan 
women and girls.
    The Committee continues conditions on assistance for 
Afghanistan similar to prior fiscal years to ensure 
effectiveness and sustainability of programs, and expects the 
GoA to assume the burdens of governance in the near term. The 
Committee underscores the impact of official corruption and 
mismanagement on the legitimacy of the GoA which, if left 
unchecked, will erode the international community's investments 
in Afghanistan over the past decade.
    The Committee continues support for rule of law programs 
and directs the Secretary of State to submit a report on such 
programs in Afghanistan, including the amounts and uses of 
funds, the extent to which the GoA supports such efforts, an 
assessment of the results to date, and benchmarks for measuring 
progress.
    The Committee recommends that ESF and INCLE assistance for 
Afghanistan be utilized to support the GoA in replicating the 
Helmand Food Zone program in other Afghan provinces.
    The Committee recommends not less than $10,000,000 to 
support a democracy and human rights assistance strategy for 
Afghanistan, including to implement programs from such 
strategy, to be administered by DRL.
    The Committee continues to support assistance for the 
National Solidarity Program, and directs USAID to prioritize 
support for this program with funds appropriated by this act.
    Funds are allocated in the following table and subject to 
the requirements of section 7019 of this act:

                                PAKISTAN

    Operations.--The Committee recommends $184,457,000 for 
Department of State, including for Worldwide Security 
Protection, and $42,000,000 for USAID operations in Pakistan, 
and notes that a total of $21,000,000 in prior fiscal year 
funds will carry over for Department of State operations into 
fiscal year 2013.
    The Committee acknowledges the detrimental effects of 
strained bilateral relations on the implementation of United 
States foreign assistance programs in Pakistan, and recommends 
that the Department of State and other United States Government 
agencies reassess personnel requirements and downsize 
accordingly. While the Committee recognizes the importance of 
Pakistan to United States strategic interests in South Asia, 
maintaining the operational status quo at Embassy Islamabad and 
elsewhere absent programmatic activity is fiscally imprudent. 
This geostrategic importance is complicated by the apparent 
unwillingness and/or inability of the Government of Pakistan to 
keep open supply routes to Afghanistan or to mitigate extremist 
attacks on coalition forces in Afghanistan emanating from 
sanctuaries in Pakistan.
    While the Committee sets a budget ceiling for costs 
associated with operations and personnel in Pakistan, a 
national security waiver is provided to allow the 
administration to respond to any extraordinary, unforeseen 
contingencies that endanger human health or welfare.
    Assistance.--The Committee recommends $800,346,000 for 
assistance for Pakistan, and notes unobligated balances as of 
March 31, 2012, totaling $892,530,000.
    The Committee endorses Embassy Islamabad's assistance 
review, and directs the Department of State to provide updates 
on its findings. Restrictions on assistance similar to those in 
prior fiscal years are continued in this act.
    The Committee recommends not less than $10,000,000 for the 
Pakistan Civilian Assistance Program for continued assistance 
for individuals and communities that suffer losses as a result 
of military operations, and directs USAID to consult with the 
Committee on the use of funds prior to obligation.
    The Committee directs the Department of State and USAID to 
obligate and expend program funds for Pakistan at the minimum 
rate possible, including for infrastructure projects, until 
such time as bilateral relations show consistent improvement.
    The Committee expands the use of funds appropriated under 
the FMF and PCCF headings for Pakistan to include assistance 
for counterpiracy programs, and provides that unobligated funds 
appropriated by this act under the PCCF may be reprogrammed for 
other purposes should cargo transit routes through Pakistan 
remain closed and programmatic activity in Pakistan remain 
stalled. The Committee remains concerned with the apparent lack 
of progress in credibly investigating and prosecuting Pakistani 
military personnel for human rights violations, including 
torture and extra-judicial executions, and expects section 620M 
of the FAA to be rigorously applied.
    The Committee directs the Assistant Secretary for DRL, 
after consultation with USAID and NED, to submit a multi-year 
strategy to promote democracy and human rights in Pakistan and 
recommends $10,000,000 for programs to implement this strategy, 
to be administered by DRL.
    The Committee recommends continuing funding through DRL and 
DCHA for activities that support the development of independent 
media including radio in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
    Funds are allocated in the following table and subject to 
the requirements of section 7019 of this act:

                                  IRAQ

    Operations.--The Committee recommends $450,000,000 for 
Department of State, and $53,000,000 for USAID operations in 
Iraq, and notes that a total of $1,654,000,000 in prior fiscal 
year funds will carry over for Department of State operations 
into fiscal year 2013. The Committee notes that including 
carryover balances, Department of State operations in Iraq are 
funded at $2,104,000,000 which is adequate to support fiscal 
year 2013 operations, assuming the Department's estimated 
revised support costs, on-board staffing levels, and shared 
aviation costs. Section 7052(c)(1) provides authority to the 
Department to collect from private individuals the cost of 
travel on Embassy Air in Iraq through the Working Capital Fund.
    The Committee supports the Department of State's review of 
operations that will decrease the civilian presence in Iraq, 
and encourages further rightsizing of diplomatic facilities in 
Kirkuk and Basrah. The Committee endorses efforts to utilize 
the local economy for goods and services, but recognizes the 
limitations of such efforts outside of northern Iraq. While the 
Committee sets a budget ceiling for costs associated with 
operations and personnel in Iraq, a national security waiver is 
provided to allow the administration to respond to any 
extraordinary, unforeseen contingencies that endanger human 
health or welfare.
    The Committee recognizes that further consolidation of 
facilities is warranted in Iraq, and section 7004(g) requires 
the Secretary of State to submit an updated facilities 
construction plan, which should include consideration of 
closing the facility at Kirkuk and moving support services to 
Erbil; decreasing personnel, contractor, and physical 
structures in Basrah to establish a leaner operation; and 
centralizing certain administrative and support functions that 
require a more permissive security environment (including 
purchasing of local goods and warehousing) in Erbil.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit a 
report not later than 45 days after enactment of this act, and 
every 90 days thereafter until September 30, 2014, detailing 
the number of United States Government personnel and 
contractors in Iraq, disaggregated by Federal agency. The 
Committee expects this number to significantly decrease as 
facilities are consolidated in Baghdad.
    The Committee regrets that land-use agreements are 
outstanding for certain facilities in Iraq, and prohibits the 
use of funds appropriated by this act for construction or 
rehabilitation on properties for which no land-use agreement 
exists.
    Assistance.--The Committee recommends $582,347,000 for 
assistance for Iraq, and notes unobligated balances as of March 
31, 2012, totaling $1,977,000,000. The Committee is aware of 
increasing Iraqi oil revenues and expects that after receiving 
billions of dollars of United States assistance the Government 
of Iraq will finance its own development programs.
    The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for the Marla Ruzicka 
Iraqi War Victims Fund for continued assistance for civilian 
victims of conflict, and the transition of this program to an 
Iraqi-run entity.
    The Committee notes the largely unsuccessful implementation 
of the police development program in Iraq, with the exception 
of activities conducted in northern Iraq. The Committee 
recognizes several factors contributing to this deficiency, 
including the relative lack of interest by the GoI for such 
activities, inadequate planning by the Department of State 
(including unnecessary construction at the Baghdad Police 
Academy Annex), and programmatic assumptions regarding shared 
bilateral interests that proved false. The Committee directs 
the Secretary of State to report to the Committee the findings 
of the Department's review of the PDP, and to limit the 
expenditure of funds only for programs in northern Iraq. In 
order to be successful, the Committee expects GoI buy-in for 
the program, which should include cost-sharing, and a complete 
revision of goals and objectives at substantial savings to U.S. 
taxpayers. No funding is provided in this act for the PDP.
    The Committee recommendation does not include funding for 
USAID's Tarabot and Ajyal programs as the costs of 
strengthening public management institutions and training 
teachers should be the responsibility of the GoI and supported 
by national revenues. Further, the follow-on to USAID's Tijara 
business program shall not exceed $10,000,000. The Committee 
recommends not less than $30,000,000 for democracy and 
governance programs.
    The Committee expects the Department of State to update the 
report on ethno-religious minorities in Iraq under the ESF 
heading in Senate Report 112-85 not later than 90 days after 
enactment of this act.
    To ensure transparency and accountability of funds, the 
Committee continues conditions on assistance for Iraq.
    Iraqi National Budget.--GAO's most recent estimate of 
Iraq's cumulative budget surplus is $52,100,000,000 as of 
December 2009, of which, adjusting for outstanding advances 
(including letters of credit, advance payments on domestic 
contracts, and other funds that have been committed for future 
expenses or paid out), at least $11,800,000,000 was available 
for future spending. Under the terms of a February 2010 IMF 
arrangement, Iraq agreed to report its outstanding advances by 
September 30, 2010, but has not done so. While GAO was able to 
determine that in the first 6 months of 2011 Iraq collected 
$7,900,000,000 more in oil revenue than it originally budgeted, 
current data on outstanding advances is not available. In order 
for the Committee to consider these Iraqi revenues when it 
reviews the spend plan submitted for assistance for Iraq, the 
Committee endorses the GAO's recommendation that the 
Departments of State and the Treasury work with the Government 
of Iraq to identify these resources by completing the IMF-
required review of outstanding advances.
    Security Conditions Report.--The Committee directs the 
Secretary of State to submit a report to the Committee 
detailing the effect of the security situation in Iraq on the 
ability of the Department of State and USAID to effectively and 
efficiently deliver assistance. The report shall be broken down 
by region and shall include, to the extend relevant: (1) an 
assessment of the current security situation; (2) the impact of 
the security situation on the planned obligation and 
expenditure of funds, and the movement of personnel; (3) an 
explanation of the type and nature of any increased security 
costs; (4) details on the impact of the delivery of 
humanitarian assistance; and (5) a plan to ameliorate the 
negative impact of a deteriorating security condition.
    Funds are allocated in the following table and subject to 
the requirements of section 7019 of this act:

                   Administration of Foreign Affairs


                    DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR PROGRAMS

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2012.................................... $10,940,011,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................  11,380,364,000
    Enduring operations.................................   7,068,619,000

    Overseas contingency operations....................\1\ 1,426,000,000

\1\ Overseas contingency operations is funded under title VIII.

    The Committee recommends $7,437,468,000 for Diplomatic and 
Consular Programs, of which up to $1,428,468,000 is for 
Worldwide Security Protection. An additional $1,426,000,000 in 
title VIII under this heading is designated for OCO.
    The Committee recommendation separates the functions funded 
under this heading to provide transparency in the uses of 
funds. However, the Department of State may reprogram funds as 
necessary, subject to prior consultation with the Committee.
    Human Resources.--The Committee recommends $2,448,702,000 
for all American salaries at overseas and domestic United 
States diplomatic missions, and does not include the requested 
extension of authority and funding for phase III of Foreign 
Service overseas comparability pay.
    Overseas Programs.--The Committee recommends $2,631,039,000 
for the operational programs of the Department of State's 
regional bureaus, which are responsible for managing U.S. 
foreign policy through bilateral and multilateral 
relationships. Funds support U.S. embassies, consulates, and 
other diplomatic posts worldwide, and provide myriad services 
to millions of U.S. citizens living, working, studying, and 
serving abroad, including thousands who are arrested and 
imprisoned in foreign countries. The Committee recommends 
funding for operations, including for public diplomacy 
programs, to be used at overseas posts, funded through the 
Bureaus of East Asian and Pacific Affairs, African Affairs, 
Western Hemisphere Affairs, and South and Central Asian Affairs 
(not including Afghanistan and Pakistan) and to support 
additional programs at American Spaces worldwide.
    Diplomatic Policy and Support.--The Committee recommends 
$892,982,000 for the operational programs of the Department of 
State's functional bureaus to provide overall policy direction, 
coordination, and program management among U.S. missions 
abroad. The Committee recommends not less than $6,500,000 for 
salary and program costs of the Office for Global Women's 
Issues within the Office of the Secretary; not less than 
$9,140,000 for program costs for the Bureau of Democracy, Human 
Rights, and Labor; and not less than $16,294,000 for program 
costs for the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental 
and Scientific Affairs.
    Security Programs.--The Committee recommends $1,464,745,000 
for the operation of security programs, including 
$1,210,358,000 for Worldwide Security Protection to protect 
diplomatic personnel, overseas diplomatic missions, residences, 
and domestic facilities and information. An additional 
$218,110,000 is included within the Human Resources function 
for salaries for a total of $1,428,468,000 for WSP in this 
title. The Committee recommends an additional $651,000,000 for 
OCO costs for WSP.

                             PROGRAM ISSUES

    Coordinator of United States Assistance to Europe, Eurasia 
and Central Asia.--The Committee affirms, in section 7068, the 
authorities of the Coordinator of U.S. Assistance to Europe, 
Eurasia and Central Asia, as provided in the SEED and Freedom 
Support Acts, and intends that all assistance appropriated 
under titles III and IV of this act for the countries of 
Europe, Eurasia, and Central Asia be subject to procedures 
developed by the Coordinator to ensure the strategic allocation 
of appropriated funds and effective coordination among U.S. 
Government agencies, and between the United States and other 
bilateral and international donors.
    Cultural Heritage.--The Committee recommends $6,500,000 for 
this program, including $1,000,000 for the Cultural Antiquities 
Task Force, and for not less than five large-scale projects. 
The Committee recognizes the important public diplomacy role of 
this program, as well as its contribution in preserving some of 
the world's irreplaceable cultural antiquities. The Department 
of State should consult with the Committee prior to the 
obligation of funds.
    Cyber Issues.--The Committee recommends $1,000,000 for 
operations and programs under the authority of the Coordinator 
for Cyber Issues, in addition to funds otherwise made available 
for such purposes. The Coordinator, in consultation with the 
heads of other relevant Federal agencies, is encouraged to 
consult on a regular basis with other nations and organizations 
on cybersecurity issues, including research and development, 
infrastructure protection, standards, and best practices in the 
field. The Coordinator is directed to consult with the 
Committee prior to providing funds to United Nations cyber 
programs.
    Freely Associated States.--The Committee directs the 
Department of State to continue working within the National 
Security Council Interagency Policy Committee on Freely 
Associated State Affairs to implement its action plan to reduce 
the impact of FAS migration on Federal, State, local, and 
territorial governments, particularly those in affected 
jurisdictions. The Committee also encourages the USAID field 
office in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, to provide technical 
assistance to the governments of the FAS in support of economic 
development and health.
    Human Rights Vetting.--The Committee supports the 
Department of State's efforts to monitor U.S. military 
assistance for foreign security forces, pursuant to section 
620M of the FAA. The vetting process has been widely applied to 
individuals who are candidates for U.S. training, and the 
Committee understands that the Department of State is also 
applying the law to those individuals' units and to units that 
may receive U.S. equipment, as required. As in past years, the 
Committee recommends not less than $3,500,000 for DRL for 
personnel, training, and other support to strengthen the 
vetting process and to implement the other requirements of 
section 620M.
    Overseas Presence and Staffing Levels.--The Committee 
directs the Secretary of State to provide the Committee, not 
later than 45 days after enactment of this act, a consolidated 
list of Office of Inspector General recommendations for 
potential position reductions and office-size reductions or 
closures since October 1, 2011, including cost savings, and the 
Department's responses to such recommendations.
    Public Diplomacy.--The Committee recommends a total of 
$541,566,000 for public diplomacy programs to be funded through 
direct appropriations, and an additional $5,000,000 through 
Department of State fees.
    Representation Expenses.--The Committee does not include a 
provision included in the budget request authorizing the 
Department of State to transfer up to $1,000,000 from D&CP; to 
Representation Expenses.
    Tibet.--The Committee recommends not less than $750,000 for 
the Office of the Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues to 
carry out the broad responsibilities detailed in section 621(d) 
of Public Law 107-228, as well as for convening and 
coordinating meetings for appropriate Federal agencies, NGOs, 
and representatives of the Tibetan leadership in exile.
    Trafficking in Persons.--The Committee recommends a total 
of $46,500,000 in this act for TIP programs, of which 
$7,500,000 is included under the D&CP; heading for the Office to 
Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons ($3,202,000 for 
programs and $4,198,000 for salaries). The Committee directs 
the Secretary of State to post, or otherwise make available, 
the human trafficking hotline and Web site information in 
Consular Affairs public waiting areas in all U.S. Embassies and 
Consulates in a timely manner.
    The Committee recognizes the need for transparency 
regarding the Department of State's use of waiver authority to 
prevent certain countries from being downgraded from the Tier 2 
Watch List to Tier 3 in the annual Trafficking in Persons 
Report. The Committee directs the Department of State to 
include in the 2013 report, and subsequent reports, an 
assessment of progress made by each country issued such a 
waiver in relation to the country's written plan.
    Travel Cards and Purchase Cards.--The Committee directs the 
Secretary of State to report on the fiscal year 2012 use of 
Government-funded credit cards (including Department of State 
travel cards and purchase cards), including the number and 
value of purchases that did not comply with regulations, 
whether reimbursement was received for these noncompliant 
purchases, and the Department's policy for disciplining 
employees who abuse the use of Government credit cards.
    Victims of Terrorism.--The Committee directs the Secretary 
of State to continue to assist American victims of terrorism 
abroad regarding frozen assets for compensation and other 
issues, including for the bombings of United States facilities 
in Kenya and Tanzania and terrorist acts sponsored by former 
Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi.
    Not later than 45 days after enactment of this act, the 
Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary 
of State, shall submit a report detailing the amount of assets 
owned by the Qaddafi family that remains blocked, the amount of 
settlement funds available to pay Libya-related awards, and the 
total amount of certified awards.
    The Committee notes that $4,000,000 appropriated in Public 
Law 110-161 for compensation to the families of members of the 
Foreign Service or other U.S. Government employees (or their 
dependents) who were killed in terrorist attacks since 1979 
remains unexpended, and that the obligation of funds are 
subject to specific authorization in subsequent Acts of 
Congress. The Committee will consider additional funds for such 
purposes once specific authorizing language is enacted into 
law.
    Visa Processing.--The Committee recognizes the recent 
efforts of the Secretary of State to improve visa services and 
meet growing visa demand, particularly in PRC and Brazil. 
Executive Order 13597 directs the Secretaries of State and 
Homeland Security, in coordination with OMB and other relevant 
agencies, to develop a plan to increase nonimmigrant visa 
processing capacity in the PRC and Brazil by 40 percent, ensure 
that 80 percent of nonimmigrant visa applicants are interviewed 
within 3 weeks of receipt of application, increase efforts to 
expand the Visa Waiver Program, and expand reciprocal 
recognition programs for expedited travel. Section 7076 of this 
act directs the Secretary of State to continue to take the 
necessary steps to achieve these goals and to report to the 
Committee on progress made.
    The Committee remains concerned with the lack of access to 
consular services in certain high-demand countries due to 
lengthy travel distances, and encourages the Secretary of State 
to evaluate alternative means of addressing this problem, 
including remote interviewing and videoconferencing.

    The Committee recommends $90,000,000 for Capital Investment 
Fund.

                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

Appropriations, 2012....................................    $129,086,000

    Overseas contingency operations.....................  \1\ 55,900,000

\1\ Overseas contingency operations are funded under title VIII.

    The Committee recommends $67,000,000 for Office of 
Inspector General, and an additional $55,900,000 in title VIII 
under this heading is designated for OCO.
    The Committee directs the Inspectors General of the 
Department of State and USAID, SIGAR, and SIGIR to coordinate 
audit plans and activities to minimize unnecessary duplication, 
ensure comprehensive oversight plans, and maximize the 
effective use of resources. The Committee directs the OIG to 
continue to plan for increased responsibilities when SIGIR 
draws down its oversight operations, and to include in the 
fiscal year 2014 budget request the personnel authorities 
required to conduct adequate oversight of Department of State's 
Iraq operations and programs.
    The Committee recommends $1,378,000 for the OIG's Middle 
East Regional Office, in addition to funds otherwise made 
available for such purposes, to support additional auditors to 
meet the increased demands as SIGIR draws down.

               EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMS

Appropriations, 2012....................................    $598,800,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................     586,957,000
Committee recommendation................................     625,000,000

    The Committee recommends $625,000,000 for Educational and 
Cultural Exchange Programs.
    The Committee recognizes the need to expand international 
exchanges and intends that programs funded under this heading 
will support U.S. foreign policy objectives.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to use the 
additional funds to increase the number of participants and 
broaden the representation of groups that have been 
traditionally under-represented, such as youth and individuals 
from rural and high-poverty areas, including the Benjamin 
Gilman International Scholarship, International Visitor 
Leadership, and Citizen Exchange youth programs. The Committee 
also directs the Secretary to consider the use of virtual 
educational exchange programs and other programs that expand 
the number, diversity, and experience of participants beyond 
traditional study abroad programs.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of educational 
exchanges for professionals in key fields from Eurasia and 
recommends that a portion of the Fulbright awards from this 
region are designated as Edmund S. Muskie Fellowships.
    The Committee supports the Secretary's efforts to reduce 
the administrative and overhead costs of exchange programs and 
expects that the savings from such efforts will be used to 
increase the number of participants. Funds are allocated 
according to the following table and are subject to the 
provisions of section 7019 of this act:

    Changes to Educational and Cultural Exchange Programs.--The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to consult with the 
Committee prior to implementing changes to exchange programs 
proposed for fiscal year 2013, including the Mike Mansfield 
Fellowship program, regarding compliance with applicable 
authorizing language. The Committee expects any proposed 
changes to exchange programs that require amending existing 
authorization will only occur after consultation with relevant 
committees, and amendments to existing law, as appropriate.
    NERD Exchanges.--The Committee notes the administration 
submitted a budget amendment regarding fellowship and exchange 
programs to be conducted by the NERD program. The Committee 
includes additional funds under this heading for such purposes, 
and directs to be consulted prior to the initial obligation of 
funds.
    Musical Exchanges.--The Committee supports cultural 
exchanges, including exchanges involving United States and 
foreign artists, which advance public diplomacy. The Committee 
requests the Secretary of State to report on the national 
interest served by the American Music Abroad program.
    Summer Work Travel and High School Exchange Programs.--The 
Committee is concerned with lax oversight of Summer Work Travel 
and high school exchange programs, which has resulted in abuses 
of foreign participants and harm to the reputation of these 
programs. The Committee recognizes that the Department of State 
has taken, and continues to take, steps to strengthen 
regulations and oversight of these programs to ensure they are 
primarily cultural and educational and do not divert jobs from 
Americans. The Committee expects to be informed in a timely 
manner of improvements to these programs and any recurring 
problems.

U.S. mission to the OAS to work with other OAS member states to 
encourage the OAS Permanent Council to conduct a transparent 
accounting of current staffing and adopt personnel practices 
that establish rigorous, credible, and transparent merit-based

missions in countries where ethnic, religious, and political 
violence threatens regional stability and the safety of 
civilian populations. The Committee continues certain 
requirements for U.S. support for such missions, and includes

United States assessed contributions under this heading to the 
United Nations and its affiliated agencies on the Department of 
State's Web site in a timely manner, and the first such posting

    Internet Circumvention.--The Committee recommends 
$12,000,000 for BBG's Internet circumvention program, and 
directs BBG to submit a report, prior to the initial obligation 
of funds, detailing planned expenditures for this purpose. The 
Committee encourages continued coordination and cooperation 
between the Department of State and USAID on the planning and 
implementation of these programs. The Committee encourages BBG 
to consider digital security and digital safety training for 
those who use BBG circumvention tools. The Committee directs 
BBG to continue to monitor protections against BBG tools being 
used for illicit purposes, and expects BBG to inform the 
Committee of any concerns.
    Iran.--The Committee directs GAO to submit a report 
assessing the audience share of U.S. broadcasting to Iran as 
compared to other international broadcasters, and whether U.S. 
policies toward Iran are presented clearly and effectively in 
such broadcasts, and in a balanced manner.
    New Program Initiatives.--The Committee supports BBG's 
efforts to identify new program formats but is concerned that 
BBG proposes reductions in current programs before testing new 
program models for effectiveness, particularly in priority 
languages. Therefore, the Committee recommends funding to 
sustain BBG broadcasts to the PRC as well as for the VOA 
Mandarin television initiative begun in fiscal year 2012. The 
Committee recommends $400,000 in addition to funds already 
available for VOA and RFA Tibetan Services for special 
programming, particularly radio programming, to enhance 
coverage of events in Tibet. The Committee directs the BBG to 
consult prior to implementation of such special programs. The 
Committee also recommends funding to continue current VOA and 
RFE/RL programming to Central Asia and for the new VOA and RFE/
RL program to that region. The Committee recommends the budget 
request for the expansion of Middle East Broadcasting Network's 
television programming to Egypt. If BBG's fiscal year 2014 
budget request proposes to reduce current programs to the PRC 
or Central Asia in favor of new program models, the Committee 
directs BBG to include in the CBJ an assessment of the 
effectiveness of the new programs as compared with existing 
programs. The Committee does not support the proposed BBG 
digital media development initiative.
    North Korea.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$8,960,000 for international broadcasting to North Korea.
    Proposed Reductions.--The Committee does not support the 
following reductions and terminations proposed by BBG and 
includes adequate funding to sustain current levels: reductions 
to staffing, broadcast hours, and original program hours of VOA 
and RFA East and Southeast Asia services, including Mandarin 
and Tibetan; discontinuation of VOA Cantonese broadcasts; 
closing of the BBG Poro medium wave transmitting station; the 
consolidation and reorganization of VOA Central News and 
English Division; realignment of BBG shortwave and medium wave 
transmissions; reductions to staffing and radio broadcasts of 
VOA Georgian, VOA Turkish, and VOA Ashna; termination of radio 
broadcasts of RFE/RL Tartarstan, Bashkortostan, Avar, Chechen, 
and Circassian; and transition to Russian-language broadcasts 
to the North Caucasus. The Committee supports the proposed 
reduction in TV Marti operating costs, including the 
termination of the Aeromarti contract, as long as such action 
will not reduce its current broadcast schedule of 166 weekly 
hours.
    Strategic Priorities.--The Committee is concerned that 
BBG's broadcast priorities do not fully align with U.S. foreign 
policy priorities. For example, the fiscal year 2013 budget 
request reduces broadcasting to Asia at the same time the 
Secretary of State has called for expanding engagement with 
Asia, particularly East Asia. The Committee directs BBG to 
submit, not later than 180 days after enactment of this act, a 
report on how BBG's broadcast policy reflects input from the 
Department of State and other relevant agencies, and further 
directs BBG to include in its CBJ the linkage between broadcast 
and foreign policy priorities for any proposed language service 
changes.

Appropriations, 2012....................................    $117,764,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................     104,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     236,000,000

    The Committee recommends $236,000,000 for the National 
Endowment for Democracy, of which $200,000,000 shall be 
allocated in the traditional and customary manner, as in prior 
fiscal years, to include the core institutes. The Committee 
notes that the increase for the NED is offset by an equivalent 
decrease in the overall fiscal year 2013 budget request for 
democracy programs.
    The Committee recognizes the comparative advantages of the 
NED in the promotion of democracy and human rights abroad, 
particularly given its status as an NGO, unparalleled 
experience in promoting freedom during the cold war, and 
continued ability to conduct programs in the most hostile 
political environments. In many circumstances, the Committee 
recognizes the NED as a more appropriate and effective 
mechanism to promote democracy and human rights abroad than 
either the Department of State or USAID. The Committee notes 
the vision of President Ronald Reagan in the creation of the 
NED.
    Additional funds above the budget request are recommended 
for programs in the following countries:

    The Committee expects the NED, DRL, and USAID to regularly 
consult and coordinate democracy and human rights activities. 
However, funds appropriated under this heading shall not be 
subject to prior approval by the Department of State or USAID, 
or to administrative or managerial surcharges, and the NED 
should not be precluded from competitively bidding on other 
grant solicitations.
    The President of the NED shall submit a report on the uses 
of funds under this heading on a regional and country basis no 
later than 45 days after enactment of this act.

    Development Leadership Initiative.--The Committee continues 
to support USAID's DLI program and recommends adequate funding 
for additional DLI participants in fiscal year 2013, including 
for space expansion and lease costs.
    Overseas Representation and Residence Expenses.--The 
Committee expects USAID to utilize, to the maximum extent 
possible, United States-owned foreign currencies for overseas 
representation and official residence expenses.
    Procurement Reform.--The Committee supports USAID's effort 
to reform its procurement policies and practices and recommends 
$25,000,000 for this initiative. The Committee recognizes the 
need to protect taxpayer dollars from waste and fraud, and at 
the same time curtail practices that are inefficient, more 
costly, and unsustainable. USAID's Implementation and 
Procurement Reform initiative focuses on building capacity in 
local governments and civil society and streamlining the 
agency's procurement procedures to reach a wider range of 
partners and increase competition. The Committee urges USAID to 
continue its reform efforts by reducing reliance on large, 
inflexible contracts and working more directly with local 
governments and civil society to build capacity and develop 
sustainable programs in a transparent and accountable manner.
    The USAID Administrator is directed to submit a report to 
the Committee, not later than 180 days after enactment of this 
act, detailing:
  --USAID's strategy for increasing assistance through local 
        partners;
  --the eligibility and oversight requirements of such 
        assistance;
  --how such strategy will advance U.S. interests and 
        development goals;
  --any anticipated reduction in assistance through U.S. 
        partners; and
  --potential cost savings.
    Direct Government-to-Government Assistance.--The Committee 
clarifies, in section 7031(a), the application of the 
notification requirement required for direct government-to-
government assistance. The threshold for notification, the 
purpose of which is to explain how the proposed activity 
complies with pre-obligation assessment requirements, is to be 
calculated based on the anticipated cumulative value of the 
program. Once notified before the initial obligation is made, 
the Committee does not expect to be notified again in future 
funding years of the program unless future year obligations 
result in a cumulative value in excess of $50,000,000 and the 
program was not notified prior to the initial obligation of 
funds.
    Partnerships and Unsolicited Proposals.--The Committee 
supports efforts by USAID and the Department of State to build 
partnerships with United States academic institutions and 
others in the private sector to design and implement assistance 
programs and leverage additional resources. However, it is 
difficult for such entities to navigate multiple Web sites to 
locate useful information about new partnership opportunities, 
and meetings about unsolicited project ideas with Department 
and USAID officials are often frustrating and unproductive. The 
Committee directs USAID and the Department of State to clearly 
indicate on their Web site home pages, and on their home pages 
for each country, detailed information on partnership 
opportunities, by sector, and procedures for submitting 
unsolicited proposals.
    Recruitment of Veterans.--The Committee directs the USAID 
Administrator to report to the Committee the number of veterans 
currently employed by USAID to include direct hires and 
personal service contractors. The report should include hiring 
trend data and steps USAID is taking to recruit and hire 
veterans. The Committee recognizes that GAO is conducting a 
governmentwide investigation on veteran hiring practices.
    Recruitment Strategy.--Not later than 45 days after 
enactment of this act, the USAID Administrator shall report to 
the Committee on the extent to which USAID implemented the 
recruitment strategy referenced in section 7059(l) of division 
H of Public Law 111-8.
    Training.--Since fiscal year 2008, 820 new foreign service 
officers were hired by USAID through the Development Leadership 
Initiative to improve its technical and managerial capacity, 
during which time many middle and senior level staff retired. 
The Committee recognizes and supports the training role former 
USAID employees can provide, and encourages the USAID 
Administrator to utilize such training for direct-hire staff.

                        DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES

    The Committee notes that for fiscal years 2009 through 2012 
the Congress appropriated a total of approximately 
$36,835,160,000 for the administration's three key development 
initiatives, including $31,241,400,000 for the GHI, 
$2,538,100,000 for the GCCI, and $3,055,600,000 for FtF through 
the Departments of State and the Treasury, and USAID. The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State, USAID Administrator, 
and the Secretary of the Treasury, as appropriate, after 
consultation with the Committee, to submit to a report on 
obligations and expenditures for each such initiative on a 
quarterly basis.

                       MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH

    The Committee recommends $678,968,000 for maternal and 
child health activities under this heading. The Committee 
supports USAID's Child Survival Call to Action program, which 
seeks to collaborate with other donors and partners to end 
preventable child deaths, including over 7 million children 
under the age of 5 annually.
    Midwifery.--The Committee supports continued funding for 
USAID's efforts to promote the training of local healthcare 
providers as midwives to assist women in avoiding and 
addressing pregnancy complications and reducing maternal and 
child mortality.
    Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus.--The Committee recognizes 
the importance of low-cost vaccines for women of childbearing 
age in preventing tetanus in newborn children, encourages 
public-private partnerships to deliver such vaccines, and urges 
USAID to support efforts to eliminate maternal and neonatal 
tetanus.
    Pediatric Screening.--USAID should consider support for 
mobile outreach programs to expand and improve access to 
pediatric eye screening for children in the West Bank, East 
Jerusalem, and Gaza in a manner that delivers the maximum 
amount of funds to the field.
    Polio.--The Committee recommends not less than $40,000,000 
for polio eradication efforts, including $35,500,000 under this 
heading and $4,500,000 under the ESF heading for programs in 
Pakistan and Afghanistan.
    Uterine Prolapse.--The Committee continues to support 
efforts to prevent and treat uterine prolapse in Nepal.
    Vaccines and Immunization.--The Committee recommends 
$145,000,000 for the GAVI Alliance.
    Vulnerable Children.--The Committee recommends $23,000,000 
for programs and activities to address the needs of vulnerable 
children, of which not less than $3,500,000 is for assistance 
for blind children. USAID should administer programs in a 
manner that delivers the maximum amount of funds to the field, 
and also consider support for cleft lip and cleft palate 
surgery.
    The Committee directs USAID's Displaced Children and 
Orphans Fund to provide up to $4,500,000 to continue 
implementing model programs for technical assistance for 
governments to assess the needs and number of children living 
outside of family care and progress made in placing them in 
safe and stable families. The head of the DCOF is directed to 
consult with the Committee prior to the obligation of funds.

                               NUTRITION

    The Committee recommends $122,000,000 for nutrition 
programs under this heading, to be made available through 
USAID. The Committee recognizes that long-term effects of 
malnutrition can include poorer health, learning and 
productivity limitations, and stunted brain development, among 
other problems. The Committee encourages USAID to give 
particular attention to the nutritional needs of pregnant women 
and children, particularly from birth to age 2.
    Micronutrients.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$33,500,000 for micronutrients, of which not less than 
$23,000,000 is to address vitamin A deficiencies. The Committee 
recommends that nutrition programs, including micronutrients, 
also be included within the funds appropriated to the 
Department of State and USAID for programs to combat HIV/AIDS.
    The Committee recommends not less than $2,500,000 for the 
USAID/UNICEF IDD program to prevent mental retardation in 
children.

                  FAMILY PLANNING/REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH

    The Committee recommends a total of $700,000,000 from all 
accounts in this act for family planning and reproductive 
health programs, including $600,000,000 under this heading, 
$55,500,000 under the ESF heading, and $44,500,000 for UNFPA.

                                HIV/AIDS

    The Committee recommends a total of $5,900,000,000 for 
programs and activities to combat HIV/AIDS, of which 
$5,550,000,000 is for the Department of State and $350,000,000 
is for USAID.
    Global Fund.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$1,650,000,000 for a U.S. contribution to the Global Fund to 
Fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.
    The Committee supports efforts by the Global Fund to 
implement reforms contained in its Consolidated Transformation 
Plan, including recommendations by the High-Level Panel for 
Fiduciary Oversight to reform fiduciary controls and the 
overall business model of the Global Fund. OGAC is directed to 
consult with the Committee on implementation of such reforms, 
and on progress in implementing the strategic grant-making 
model in the 5-year strategy adopted at the 25th Board Meeting 
of the Global Fund.
    Media Programs.--The Committee notes that independent media 
can play an effective role in combating HIV/AIDS through 
accurate and unbiased coverage of the causes and appropriate 
public responses.
    Microbicides.--The Committee recommends $45,000,000 for 
research on, and development of, microbicides to prevent HIV.
    Mother-to-Child Transmission.--The Committee encourages 
OGAC to expand prevention of mother-to-child transmission 
programs in support of the goal of eliminating new pediatric 
HIV infections by 2015. The Committee supports efforts to reach 
women in rural settings, to improve the ability of programs to 
provide more effective drug regimens, and to encourage stronger 
linkages between mother-to-child and care and treatment 
programs.
    Operations Research.--The Committee recommends that OGAC 
continue to invest in implementation research, including 
operations research and impact evaluation.
    PEPFAR.--The Committee recognizes that PEPFAR plays a key 
role in HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment globally and 
does not support the reduction in the budget request for PEPFAR 
at this time.
    The Committee supports efforts to improve efficiencies, and 
recommends funds for a new ``challenge grants'' program to 
leverage additional funding for the Global Fund from host 
country governments, multilateral organizations, and/or other 
donor governments. OGAC is directed to consult with the 
Committee on the parameters of the program prior to the initial 
obligation of funds. After implementation of the program, the 
Committee requires the Secretary of State to assess the ability 
of such challenge grants to leverage increased support for, and 
funding of, Global Fund activities from donors other than the 
U.S. Government.
    The Committee requires the Secretary of State to report on 
transition plans for countries receiving PEPFAR funding, 
including South Africa.
    UNAIDS.--The Committee recommends $45,000,000 for a U.S. 
contribution to UNAIDS.

                          INFECTIOUS DISEASES

    Malaria.--The Committee recommends $670,000,000 for 
programs to combat malaria, and encourages USAID to support 
research, development, access, and delivery of anti-malarial 
medicines, including new, effective pediatric formulations and 
alternatives to artemisinin combination therapies in response 
to the threat of resistance, and to continue efforts to develop 
a malaria vaccine.
    The Committee supports the work of institutions of higher 
learning in addressing the health, economic, and security 
impacts of malaria and other parasitic diseases, and in seeking 
improvements in Federal Drug Administration-approved drugs for 
malaria prevention.
    Neglected Tropical Diseases.--The Committee recommends 
$125,000,000 for USAID's NTD program to eliminate intestinal 
parasites, schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis, 
onchocerciasis, trachoma, and leprosy which afflict hundreds of 
millions of people in tropical countries.
    Tuberculosis.--The Committee recommends $285,000,000 for 
programs to combat tuberculosis. The Committee recommends 
additional funding for MDR-TB detection, treatment, and 
prevention, including for assistance for countries in Europe, 
Eurasia, and Central Asia.

                         DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE

Appropriations, 2012....................................  $2,519,950,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................   2,525,500,000
Committee recommendation................................   3,050,000,000

    The Committee recommends $3,050,000,000 for Development 
Assistance.

                                PROGRAMS

                     AGRICULTURE AND FOOD SECURITY

    The Committee recommends $1,200,000,000 for FtF from all 
accounts in this act. The Committee recognizes that the 
economies of many developing countries have strong agricultural 
foundations and supports USAID's efforts to expand programs, 
particularly in Africa and in coordination with other donors, 
to address the root causes of hunger, malnutrition, and poverty 
through FtF.
    The Committee includes section 7059(a)(2)(E) to strengthen 
and expand the integration of women as key recipients of 
agricultural and technical assistance, and intends that 
programs are prioritized for women farmers, small-holder 
farmers, and other vulnerable populations.
    Collaborative Research Support Programs.--The Committee 
recommends not less than $32,000,000 for CRSPs, and supports 
efforts to improve agricultural productivity, nutritional 
quality and security, and innovative research in efforts to 
prevent malnutrition.
    Global Crop Diversity Trust.--The Committee recommends a 
U.S. 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.
    Land Grant Institutions.--The Committee supports the work 
of land grant institutions of higher learning and encourages 
USAID to continue to partner with such institutions with 
specialized capability in agriculture research to assist 
developing countries to improve food production.
    Nutrition.--The Committee recommends that USAID re-evaluate 
the FtF indicators to include micronutrient deficiencies, to 
ensure that appropriate emphasis is given to the nutritional 
quality of food, as well as to agricultural productivity and 
marketing.
    Sustainable Intensification.--The Committee recommends that 
USAID consider support for sustainable intensification 
strategies that boost agricultural productivity and increase 
water use efficiency on small farms and the availability of 
water for household use, including through conservation 
tillage.

                          ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

    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 people out 
of poverty by mobilizing equity and savings for community-based 
economic growth. The Committee recommends not less than 
$10,000,000 for USAID's Cooperative Development Program within 
the Office of Private and Voluntary Cooperation.
    Microenterprise and Microfinance Development Programs.--The 
Committee recommends $265,000,000 in this act for microfinance 
and microenterprise development programs. The Committee notes 
that USAID has not met the requirement of section 251(c) of the 
FAA to target 50 percent of all microfinance and 
microenterprise funds to the very poor. USAID is directed to 
consult further with the Committee and other interested 
stakeholders on ways to maximize the use of microenterprise and 
microfinance assistance to benefit the poorest, most vulnerable 
people.

                               EDUCATION

    Basic Education.--The Committee recommends up to 
$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. 
Basic education is a key component of human development and the 
Committee directs USAID to consult with stakeholders, 
particularly local NGOs, during implementation of the new 
education strategy to sustain progress in basic education 
programs.
    Higher Education.--The Committee recommends $215,000,000 in 
this act for higher education programs, including $25,000,000 
for such programs in Africa of which $15,000,000 is for 
partnerships between higher education institutions in Africa 
and the United States. Partnerships should be selected through 
an open, competitive process, and focus on fields that are key 
to development such as agriculture, environment and natural 
resources, engineering, science and technology, health, 
education and teacher training, public administration, and 
business.
    American Schools and Hospitals Abroad Program.--The 
Committee recommends $23,000,000 for the ASHA program, and 
intends that USAID will allocate funds under similar terms and 
conditions as in prior fiscal years. ASHA proposals shall be 
considered in full and open competition and in accordance with 
all applicable rules and regulations.

                         ENVIRONMENT AND ENERGY

    The Committee recommends not less than $1,155,000,000 in 
this act for bilateral and multilateral environment and energy 
programs. Funds for bilateral programs are allocated according 
to the following table and are subject to the provisions of 
section 7019 of this act:

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

    Funds for environment and energy programs should be used to 
help developing countries reduce greenhouse gas emissions; 
develop renewable energy and increase end-use energy 
efficiency; adapt to rising temperatures; address water and 
food scarcity, and rising sea levels; protect tropical forests, 
endangered species, and other biodiversity; and implement 
policies for the transparent and sustainable use of natural 
resources.
    Adaptation.--The Committee recommends $190,000,000 for 
programs to assist developing countries adapt to climate change 
hazards, including decreases in agricultural productivity, 
water scarcity, and rising sea levels.
    Sustainable Landscapes/Biodiversity.--The Committee 
recommends $113,000,000 in this act for programs to protect 
sustainable landscapes, and an additional $200,000,000 for 
biodiversity conservation programs, including $2,000,000 to 
implement and enforce the Lacey Act (section 8204 of Public Law 
110-246), $20,000,000 for the Initiative for Conservation in 
the Andean Amazon, and $10,000,000 for the Brazilian Amazon, 
with a priority on strengthening the capacity of indigenous 
organizations to protect tropical forests and biodiversity. The 
Committee also recommends $1,500,000 for continued USFS 
monitoring of forest degradation in Brazil, to be matched with 
contributions from the Government of Brazil.
    The Committee recommends not less than $25,000,000 for the 
Central Africa Regional Program for the Environment, including 
not less than $11,500,000 apportioned directly to the USFWS. 
The Committee emphasizes that CARPE's success depends on 
building the capacity of the Central African governments to 
professionally manage and protect their countries' resources. 
Memoranda of understanding and cooperative agreements should be 
used to provide a roadmap, with benchmarks for measuring 
progress, to carry out environmental impact assessments, social 
and environmental management plans, fisheries management, and 
training of an effective force for wildlife conservation and 
park management. Buy-in by governments, in coordination with 
other implementing partners, is necessary for the comprehensive 
and sustainable program that CARPE needs to become.
    The Committee recommends $1,000,000 apportioned directly to 
the Department of the Interior for biodiversity and 
archaeological conservation activities in Guatemala's Mayan 
Biosphere Reserve, to include governance and law enforcement.
    The Committee recommends not less than $10,000,000 for 
other U.S. international conservation programs administered by 
the USFWS, the USFS, the National Park Service, and the 
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Committee 
recommends funding to protect great apes in Indonesia and 
Central Africa, and wildlife in South Sudan and Niger.
    The Committee is concerned with the continuing loss of 
tropical forests that are habitat for many endangered species, 
particularly in the Amazon Basin, Central America, Central 
Africa, and Indonesia. Much of this is due to illegal logging 
in which government officials are often complicit, and to 
industrial scale logging that is unsustainable and opens up 
these areas to further development and environmental 
degradation. The Committee does not support the use of funds to 
support or promote industrial scale logging in areas of 
tropical forest where such logging has not occurred previously.
    Clean Energy.--The Committee intends that funds for clean-
energy programs under title III of this act shall be used only 
to promote the sustainable use of renewable energy technologies 
and energy efficiency technologies, and to support other 
efforts to reduce, mitigate, and/or sequester emissions of 
greenhouse gases.
    The Committee is aware that exposure to smoke from 
traditional cookstoves by an estimated 3 billion people in 
developing countries causes nearly 2 million premature deaths, 
primarily of women and young children, annually, and 
contributes to deforestation, erosion, and drought, and the 
women and children who collect firewood face daily hardship and 
security risks. This global health, environmental, and personal 
safety issue should be a priority for USAID, and the Committee 
urges investments in cookstoves that sustainably reduce fuel 
consumption and exposure to harmful smoke, including in Haiti.
    Extractive Industries.--The Committee directs the Secretary 
of the Treasury to submit a report not later than 180 days 
after the enactment of this act, describing, for each 
international financial institution, the amount and type of 
assistance provided, by country, for the extraction and export 
of oil, gas, coal, timber, or other natural resources in the 
preceding 12 months, and whether each institution considered, 
in its proposal for such assistance, the extent to which the 
country has functioning systems described in section 
7060(c)(6)(B)(i) of this act.
    Mekong River Basin.--The Committee is aware that the PRC 
intends to build additional dams along the Upper Mekong River 
that may have serious, adverse impacts on the people, economy, 
and environment in countries along the Lower Mekong River. 
Other countries plan to build as many as 11 dams on the Lower 
Mekong and dozens more on the river's tributaries. As the 
Mekong River Commission intends to conduct a study on the 
cumulative implications of these hydropower projects, the 
Committee recommends a U.S. contribution to the Commission for 
this purpose.
    Oceans.--The Committee is aware that emissions from fossil 
fuels and deforestation is changing the acidity of the ocean in 
ways that threaten fish and other ocean species on which many 
humans depend for survival. The Committee expects the 
Departments of State and the Treasury to coordinate with NOAA 
on the uses of funds for environment programs.
    Report.--The Committee directs the administration to update 
the report required by section 425 of division E of Public Law 
112-74 for funds appropriated by this act in fiscal year 2013.

                            GENDER PROGRAMS

    The Committee recognizes that the world's most pressing 
economic and political problems cannot be solved without the 
equal participation of women, and deplores the repression of 
women and girls, often enshrined in law, in many developing 
countries including some that are allies of the United States. 
Women and girls are not only denied equal educational and 
economic opportunities, they are woefully underrepresented in 
leadership positions in government. And they continue to be 
subjected to humiliating, physically debilitating, and 
discriminatory practices based on cultural or religious 
practices that are centuries old.
    The Committee intends the Department of State, guided by 
the Office of Global Women's Issues, and USAID, guided by the 
Office of Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment, to 
mainstream a focus throughout United States diplomatic and 
development efforts on raising the status, increasing 
participation, and protecting the rights of women and girls 
worldwide.
    The Committee recommends not less than $1,650,000,000 in 
this act for gender programs. Of this amount, not less than 
$50,000,000 is for programs to promote women's political 
leadership, not less than $150,000,000 is for programs to 
support a multiyear strategy to respond to gender-based 
violence, and not less than $50,000,000 is to support a 
multiyear strategy to implement the United States National 
Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security.
    The Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women's Issues and 
USAID's Senior Coordinator for Gender Equality and Women's 
Empowerment are directed to jointly report to the Committee on 
steps taken to implement gender integration and promote women's 
economic and political empowerment, including through USAID's 
Gender Equality and Female Empowerment Policy.

                            GLOBAL PROGRAMS

    Child Marriage.--The Committee directs the Secretary of 
State, in consultation with the Ambassador-at-Large for Global 
Women's Issues and USAID's Senior Coordinator for Gender 
Equality and Women's Empowerment to support diplomatic efforts 
and assistance programs to prevent child marriage in countries 
where there is high prevalence.
    Development Innovation Ventures.--The Committee recommends 
the budget request for DIV.
    Disability Programs.--The Committee recommends $5,000,000 
for disability programs, of which $3,000,000 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.
    The Committee recommends $1,000,000 to support public 
dissemination of digital information to individuals with 
disabilities and disabled people's organizations in developing 
countries, through accessible technologies not dependent on the 
Internet, to promote inclusion and integration in education, 
employment, housing, transportation, and the political process.
    The Committee recommends $1,000,000 to develop, support, 
and strengthen sports programs for people with disabilities in 
developing countries.
    The Committee is concerned with reports that USAID 
assistance for Georgia resulted in the improper segregation of 
children and adults with disabilities during a period in which 
the Government of Georgia adopted a policy of 
deinstitutionalization for children. The Committee directs 
USAID to rigorously implement its Disability Policy, which 
calls for community integration and full participation in 
society of people with disabilities, and ensure that USAID 
staff is properly trained. The Committee further directs USAID 
to work with Georgian officials, service providers, and 
disabled people's organizations to develop and implement a plan 
for the community integration of children and adults with 
disabilities who are in institutional settings.
    The Committee supports continued funding for the Global 
Disability Rights Library to:
  --increase distribution of the GDRL in developing countries;
  --provide access to digital content and assistive technology 
        for individuals with visual disabilities; and
  --provide technical assistance and support to individuals 
        with disabilities.
    The Committee recommends that USAID continue current 
practice that at least 25 percent of USAID foreign mission 
funds for these purposes be disbursed in small grants.
    The Committee also supports USAID's accessibility 
requirements for construction projects.
    Faith-Based Organizations.--The Committee notes the 
important role that faith-based organizations play in the 
delivery of foreign assistance and expects USAID to comply with 
Federal laws protecting the rights of FBOs related to competing 
for and administering projects funded with United States 
foreign assistance.
    Indigenous Peoples.--The Committee recognizes that 
indigenous peoples face increasing threats to their territory 
and cultures due to growing population pressures, the expansion 
of mechanized agriculture, and extractive industries. These and 
other development activities, which often occur without 
adequate consultation with indigenous people, can impact their 
cultures in profoundly negative ways. The Committee urges the 
appointment at USAID of an Advisor for Indigenous Peoples 
Issues to ensure that U.S. policies and programs give proper 
attention to the interests and rights of indigenous people in 
developing countries.
    Judicial Reform.--The Committee supports the use of funds 
under this heading and the ESF and INCLE headings for judicial 
reform as an important component of rule of law programs, 
particularly in developing and post-conflict countries where 
governments and civil society demonstrate a commitment to 
reform, including transparency and accountability.
    Partner Vetting.--The Committee supports a partner vetting 
system that safeguards against the inadvertent disbursement of 
funds by the Department of State or USAID to a terrorist or 
terrorist organization, while preserving important and, in some 
regions, sensitive relationships with grantees and contractors 
that play an indispensible role in implementing U.S. assistance 
programs.
    The Committee understands that the Department of State and 
USAID will finalize the design of a pilot PVS by September 30, 
2012, and requests to be consulted following its completion. 
All individuals and organizations being vetted should be 
provided with full disclosure of how information will be stored 
and used by the U.S. Government, including how information 
regarding a ``positive match'' will be handled and how to 
appeal such a match. There should also be provision for waiving 
the vetting requirements when vetting would substantially delay 
response to humanitarian crises. The Committee expects that 
other Federal agencies conducting foreign assistance programs, 
including for security sector reform, will employ vetting 
procedures similar to those devised by USAID and the Department 
of State.
    Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund.--The Committee recommends 
$13,000,000 for the LWVF, administered by USAID, which assists 
persons who are severely disabled as a result of armed 
conflict.
    Victims of Torture.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$11,500,000 for programs and activities that address the needs 
of victims of torture and trauma resulting from violent 
conflict. The Committee recommends support for centers for 
victims of torture that provide services consistent with the 
goals of Public Law 106-87. An additional $7,000,000 is 
recommended for the U.N. Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture 
under the IO&P; account.
    Water and Sanitation.--The Committee is aware that water 
shortages, already severe in many regions, are projected to 
worsen significantly in coming decades due to rising 
populations, climate change, and poor resource management. The 
Committee recommends not less than $400,000,000 in this act for 
water and sanitation projects pursuant to Public Law 109-121. 
The Committee intends these funds to be used for programs to 
provide safe drinking water and sanitation for urban and rural 
communities where water scarcity or contamination pose serious 
risks to human health, with an emphasis on drought prone 
regions of Africa. These funds are in addition to other funds 
in this act to protect and sustainably manage water resources.
    The Committee recognizes USAID's efforts to help achieve 
the MDG to halve the number of people without sustainable 
access to safe drinking water ahead of the target date. The 
Committee is concerned, however, that the MDG for improving 
access to sanitation services is unlikely to be met, and USAID 
is directed to increase funding for this purpose.
    Wheelchairs.--The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for 
wheelchair programs in developing countries, which should be 
allocated through an open and competitive process based on 
merit. The Committee supports funding that provides quality, 
low-cost wheelchairs that can be produced and maintained 
locally using appropriate technologies.

                               COUNTRIES

    Ecuador.--The Committee is concerned with the extensive oil 
contamination of land and water in Northeastern Ecuador which 
poses grave health risks for the local population. The 
Committee recommends $500,000 for rainwater collection or other 
access to safe water for local residents, and to assist in 
providing local diagnosis and treatment for chronic illnesses 
resulting from such contamination.
    Indonesia.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$115,000,000 for assistance for Indonesia, of which not less 
than $400,000 is for grants for capacity building of Indonesian 
human rights organizations, including in Papua. The Committee 
is concerned with religious intolerance and attacks against 
religious minorities in Indonesia, and urges the Government of 
Indonesia to investigate these crimes and punish those 
responsible.
    Morocco.--The Committee notes that funds made available 
under title III of this act for Morocco may be used in regions 
and territories administered by Morocco.
    Nepal.--The Committee recommends not less than $15,000,000 
for assistance for Nepal, including for training and other 
assistance to enhance the participation and leadership of 
Dalits and other minority groups in political and economic 
decisionmaking.
    Philippines.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$89,000,000 for assistance for the Philippines.
    Rwanda and Uganda.--The Committee recommends support for 
local and international NGOs to conduct oversight of the 
conflict minerals trade flowing out of Eastern DRC and to 
strengthen border controls with the DRC.
    The Committee is concerned with the lack of transparency 
and potential for corruption in the petroleum sector in Uganda, 
and directs the Department of State and USAID to encourage the 
Government of Uganda to commit to transparency in the 
management of oil revenues and bidding process, including 
public disclosure of documents, in accordance with section 
7031(b) of this act.
    Senegal.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State to 
submit a report, not later than 45 days after enactment of this 
act, on steps taken by the Government of Senegal to assist in 
bringing Hissene Habre to justice.

                   INTERNATIONAL DISASTER ASSISTANCE

Committee recommendation................................   1,250,000,000

    The Committee recommends $1,250,000,000 for International 
Disaster Assistance.
    Crisis Response.--The Committee directs the Secretary of 
the Treasury, in coordination with the Secretary of State and 
the USAID Administrator, after consultation with the Committee, 
to submit a report detailing current OFAC guidelines and 
policies regarding humanitarian access to areas controlled by 
sanctioned entities, including current timelines for granting 
licenses; OFAC mechanisms for responding to crisis early 
warning; parameters of the OFAC license for Somalia in 2011; 
and recommendations for how such guidelines and policies can be 
modified to streamline the process and enable humanitarian 
organizations to respond in a timely and effective manner when 
crises occur.
    Somalia.--The Committee is concerned with the slow response 
to the 2011 famine in Somalia, the ongoing extreme 
vulnerability of the Somali population, and credible reports of 
corruption and human rights violations by the Somalia 
Transitional Federal Government. Assistance for the STFG should 
be subject to financial transparency controls and respect for 
human rights, and the Department of State and USAID should 
closely monitor the Famine Early Warning System and other 
credible reports in order to respond in a timely manner to 
future crises.
    The Committee directs the USAID Administrator to submit a 
report describing humanitarian and other assistance for Somali 
civilians in areas under de facto control of the al-Shabaab 
terrorist organization, to include current and future 
operational plans to deliver assistance, and detailing any 
policy or regulatory restrictions that limit USAID's ability to 
deliver such assistance to needy civilians.

    The Committee recommends a ceiling of $40,000,000 for funds 
that may be transferred from other programs in this title to 
the Development Credit Program and recommends $8,200,000 for 
administrative expenses.
    The Committee continues to support programs that leverage 
private financing for development activities, particularly 
through DCA. The Committee supports the recent deployment of 
experienced Field Investment Officers to regional USAID 
missions, to enable USAID to provide expertise on capital 
markets in field offices.

    The Committee recommends $4,524,332,000 for Economic 
Support Fund, and an additional $600,000,000 in title VIII 
under this heading is designated for OCO.

                                 AFRICA

    Africa Pilot Programs.--The Committee supports the 
empowerment of U.S. Ambassadors as Chief Executive Officers of 
multi-agency missions abroad as outlined in the QDDR, and 
endorses the proposed activities by the Department of State to 
better inform agency personnel of their accountability to the 
Chief of Mission; improve Chief of Mission participation in 
interagency decisionmaking in Washington, DC; and enhance 
training and evaluation for Chiefs of Mission and Deputy Chiefs 
of Mission.
    However, the Committee recognizes that while nominally 
CEOs, ambassadors often exert little influence over how 
interagency funds are apportioned or reprogrammed. While they 
may be aware of potential challenges facing U.S. foreign policy 
long before Washington, ambassadors may be unable to quickly 
and effectively respond to such challenges through targeted 
assistance without significant bureaucratic maneuvering and/or 
approvals by various agencies and bureaus. In addition, in 
missions lacking one or more Commercial Service Officers 
assigned by the Department of Commerce, the responsibility for 
providing commercial services to U.S. private sector interests 
creates an increased burden for Foreign Service Officers and 
other Embassy personnel.
    In order to empower U.S. Ambassadors in Africa with the 
ability to directly address regional health, development, 
economic, and security challenges--as well as create increased 
trade and investment opportunities for the United States--in a 
timely and governmentwide manner, the Committee establishes, in 
section 7089, pilot programs under Chief of Mission authority 
totaling $25,000,000. A cost-matching requirement is included 
to leverage support from host governments, multilateral 
organizations, and the private sector, to the maximum extent 
practicable. The Secretary of State is required to consult with 
the Committee on additional parameters for such pilot programs 
prior to the obligation of funds.
    Democratic Republic of the Congo.--The Committee recommends 
not less than $25,000,000 to support a comprehensive strategy 
to demilitarize the mining sector in eastern Congo, enhance 
independent monitoring of the mining trade including a regional 
certification scheme for the Great Lakes region of Africa, 
protect the rights of mine laborers, build local oversight and 
regulatory capacity, assist victims of sexual violence, and 
establish an Independent Mineral Supply Chain Auditor (within 
the Executive Secretariat of the International Conference on 
the Great Lakes Region) to combat the illicit trade in 
minerals.
    South Sudan.--The Committee supports not less than the 
budget request for South Sudan, including to increase budget 
transparency and accountability. The Committee is concerned 
with reports that NGOs and faith-based organizations are 
encountering difficulty in obtaining work permits from the 
Government of South Sudan for international staff who are 
needed to help implement and monitor United States assistance 
programs.

                       EAST ASIA AND THE PACIFIC

    Assistance.--The Committee regrets that the budget request 
did not include additional funding for the East Asia and 
Pacific region above the fiscal year 2012 enacted level given 
the administration's stated strategic pivot toward that region. 
In addition to funding levels for specific countries 
recommended under this heading, the Committee directs 
additional resources be made available above the budget request 
to meet strategic requirements in the region, including in 
Cambodia and Laos. Additional funds should also be provided 
under the NADR and FMF headings.
    Burma.--The Committee recommends up to $45,000,000 for 
assistance for Burma. The Committee recognizes changes underway 
in the country, but remains concerned with potential 
backsliding on the reforms achieved to date. The Committee 
underscores the imperative for a political solution to Burma's 
myriad problems including the full participation of opposition 
political parties, particularly the National League for 
Democracy, and ethnic minorities.
    The Committee recommends that assistance for Burma, 
including along the Thai-Burma border, include programs for 
independent media activities. The Committee recommends 
assistance for Burmese groups located in Malaysia.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of the Treasury to take 
appropriate steps to ensure that any multilateral programs 
proposed for Burma take into consideration:
  --the economic, environmental and social impacts of such 
        programs on indigenous populations;
  --the commitment of the Government of Burma to contribute to, 
        and sustain, such programs, as appropriate;
  --the transparency and accountability of implementing 
        organizations, including the establishment and 
        implementation of safeguards against corruption and 
        environmental degradation for programs related to the 
        extraction of natural resources; and
  --the extent to which implementing organizations consult with 
        affected communities.
    The Secretary shall consult with the Committee on any 
proposed project lending for Burma. The Committee is concerned 
with the absence of transparency and accountability within the 
Government of Burma and its state-owned enterprises, 
particularly Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise.
    The Committee notes that section 570 of Public Law 104-208 
and section 5 of Public Law 108-61 require certain actions 
regarding Burma by the Secretary of the Treasury at 
international financial institutions. The Committee expects the 
Secretary to continue to implement such requirements until such 
time as the law is amended.
    Cambodia.--The Committee remains concerned with allegations 
of corruption and political interference within the Khmer Rouge 
Tribunal, and conditions a U.S. contribution to the KRT on a 
certification by the Secretary of State.
    The Committee remains concerned with the human rights 
situation in Cambodia, including the recent murder of activist 
Chut Wutty and continued repression of political activists. The 
Committee expects Embassy Phnom Penh to defend the rights of 
Cambodians to freedom of expression and association.
    Counterinfluence Programs.--The Committee recognizes the 
rapid expansion of PRC influence in the Africa, Asia, and South 
America regions, and the use of assistance by that country to 
influence decisions and actions of governments. The Committee 
notes that the PRC reportedly lent more money to the developing 
world than the World Bank in 2009 and 2010, and in 2007 the 
PRC's foreign economic aid totaled an estimated 
$25,000,000,000, which furthers PRC objectives to secure 
natural resources globally.
    The Committee includes a new provision, section 7044(f)(4), 
to counter the influence of such assistance, which is often 
targeted to weak central governments. Prior to the obligation 
of funds, the Committee directs the Secretary of State to 
submit a strategy, in classified form if necessary, for the 
implementation of such programs, to include a description of 
assistance provided by the PRC to a central government, the 
objective of United States assistance, and benchmarks for 
measuring progress.
    People's Republic of China.--The Committee recommends 
$15,000,000 under this heading for United States institutions 
of higher education and NGOs for democracy, governance, rule of 
law, and environment programs in the PRC. These programs 
support training for Chinese activists, lawyers, and other 
individuals on key issues including criminal justice reform, 
occupational health and safety, corruption, and pollution 
abatement. Funds should be awarded on a competitive basis.
    Republic of Korea.--The Committee is aware that the 
Department of State is currently consulting with the Government 
of Korea to allow the importation of United States-made M1 
Garand rifles into the United States from the Republic of 
Korea. These firearms were used in World War II and Korea and 
played an important role in America's military history. These 
firearms have historical value as collector's items and should 
be transferred back to the United States under existing laws 
that permit their re-importation. The Committee encourages the 
Department to move forward in finalizing an arrangement to 
facilitate the retransfer of these firearms.
    Tibet.--The Committee recommends not less than $8,000,000 
for activities implemented by NGOs to 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. Funds should be awarded competitively.
    Timor-Leste.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$1,000,000 for higher education scholarships in Timor-Leste.
    Vietnam.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$20,000,000 for site analysis and environmental remediation of 
dioxin contamination at the Bien Hoa and Phu Cat hot spots, and 
not less than $5,000,000 under the GHP heading for disability 
surveys, monitoring, and related health activities in areas 
that were heavily sprayed with Agent Orange or are otherwise 
contaminated with dioxin, for a total of $25,000,000 in this 
act for these activities. In order to minimize administrative 
costs and maximize impact in the field, the Committee intends 
that, to the maximum extent practicable, health/disability 
funds shall be implemented by Vietnamese organizations and 
entities.

                           EUROPE AND EURASIA

    Belarus.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$15,000,000 for assistance for Belarus, including for democracy 
and human rights programs in coordination with the European 
Union, and for youth and higher education programs that support 
critical thinking and academic freedom.
    Cyprus.--The Committee continues support for scholarships, 
bicommunal projects, and measures aimed at reunification, 
reducing tension and promoting peace and cooperation in Cyprus. 
Consultation with the Government of Cyprus should occur 
whenever practicable in the interest of transparency in the 
allocation of funds. The Committee intends that implementing 
organizations and the specific nature of the assistance shall 
not be subject to the prior approval of any foreign government.
    Ireland.--The Committee recommends the budget request for 
Ireland.
    Nagorno-Karabakh.--The Committee recommends assistance for 
victims of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in amounts consistent 
with prior years, and for ongoing needs related to the 
conflict. The Committee urges a peaceful resolution of the 
conflict.
    North Caucasus.--The Committee recommends $7,000,000 for 
USAID programs to address immediate and long-term needs of 
conflict-affected populations in the North Caucasus.
    Roma.--The Committee remains concerned with reports of 
discrimination and violence against Roma in some European 
countries, and recommends assistance for organizations working 
to protect Roma.
    Russia.--The Committee recommends $500,000 for the USFS's 
endangered species conservation programs in Russia.
    Turkmenistan.--The Committee remains concerned with the 
politically motivated detention of human rights activists, 
former government officials, and religious believers in 
Turkmenistan, and the lack of information from the Government 
of Turkmenistan about these cases. The Committee recognizes the 
cooperation between Turkmenistan and the United States on 
regional security issues.
    Ukraine.--The Committee recommends $100,000 for USFS forest 
management programs in Ukraine.

                               NEAR EAST

    Egypt.--The Committee recommends $250,000,000 for 
assistance for Egypt.
    The Committee is concerned with discrimination and violence 
against women in Egypt, and supports funding for women NGOs and 
initiatives to protect the rights of women and girls.
    The Committee remains concerned with violence against 
Egypt's religious minorities, including Coptic Christians.
    The Committee restricts assistance to the Government of 
Egypt unless the Secretary of State certifies that such 
government is meeting its obligations under the 1979 Egypt-
Israel Peace Treaty. This requirement also includes a national 
interest waiver.
    The Committee reduces assistance for Egypt under this 
heading by an amount equal to the amount posted as bail in 
February 2012 for members of United States NGOs operating in 
Egypt.
    Jordan.--The Committee recommends $410,000,000 for 
assistance for Jordan, which is $50,000,000 above the budget 
request. The Committee intends the additional funds to be used 
to support social services in communities that have experienced 
a significant influx of Syrian refugees.
    Lebanon.--The Committee recommends $500,000 for continued 
support for the USFS's forest and biodiversity conservation 
programs in Lebanon.
    The Committee recommends $12,000,000 for scholarships for 
students in Lebanon with high financial need to attend not-for-
profit educational institutions in Lebanon that meet standards 
comparable to those required for American accreditation. The 
institutions, students and their families are encouraged to 
meet as much of the cost of the education as possible in order 
to share the commitment to the future of Lebanon, to maximize 
the number of students who are assisted, and to minimize the 
cost per student to the American taxpayer. All students should 
be eligible for scholarships based on need, academic record, 
and potential to contribute to the long-term political, 
economic, and social development of Lebanon.
    The Committee also urges the Department of State to focus 
assistance for Lebanon on efforts that promote transparency, 
strengthen financial management, and improve efficiency of 
government institutions.
    Libya.--The Committee recommends funds be made available 
under this and the MENAIF headings for democracy and rule of 
law programs in Libya, to be provided on a cost-matching basis, 
as appropriate. The Committee continues restrictions on 
assistance for infrastructure projects in Libya.
    The Committee expects the Transitional National Council or 
any successor government to support and assist the continuing 
investigation into the bombing of Pan Am 103 and any other 
terrorist attacks attributable to the government of Muammar 
Qaddafi against U.S. citizens, including by providing access to 
documents, witnesses and other information.
    Near East Regional Democracy.--The Committee recommends not 
less than $30,000,000 for NERD programs.
    Tunisia.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$10,000,000 for assistance for Tunisia, and includes language 
authorizing additional loan guarantees for Tunisia, the costs 
of which may be covered under the MENAIF heading.
    West Bank.--The Committee recommends the budget request for 
assistance for the West Bank.
    The Committee continues to support a GAO audit of all 
assistance provided under this heading for the bilateral West 
Bank program, including cash transfer assistance. Such audit 
shall include the extent to which such assistance complies with 
the requirements of subsections 7039 (b) and (c) of this act, 
and an examination of all programs, projects, and activities, 
including obligations and expenditures.
    The Committee recommends that the Department of State and 
USAID review programs in the West Bank, Gaza, and elsewhere in 
the Middle East and other regions, to ensure that no assistance 
is provided to any entity that promotes incitement of violence 
against the United States, Israel and Jews, or other ethnic and 
religious minorities.
    Yemen.--The Committee recommends not less than $38,000,000 
for assistance for Yemen, and recognizes that the security 
situation in Yemen has transitioned to an insurgency. In order 
to maximize the effectiveness of United States assistance, the 
Committee urges the administration to consider assistance and 
security programs within this changed context.

                         SOUTH AND CENTRAL ASIA

    Central Asian Republics.--The Committee reiterates the 
United States' ongoing security interest in South and Central 
Asia, as articulated by the United States-Afghanistan Strategic 
Partnership Agreement.
    The Committee is concerned with the lack of English 
language proficiency in the Central Asian republics, recognizes 
that this impedes United States economic and security interests 
in the region, and directs the Secretary of State to provide to 
the Committee, not later than 180 days after enactment of this 
act, recommendations for expanding English language training in 
these countries.

                           WESTERN HEMISPHERE

    Assistance.--The Committee notes the daunting challenges 
facing many countries in Central and South America due to 
struggling economies and weak governmental institutions. In 
addition to funding levels for specific countries recommended 
under this heading, the Committee directs additional resources 
be made available above the budget request to strengthen 
democratic institutions, including professional and accountable 
police forces, and to address the causes of poverty in the 
region. Additional funds should also be provided under the DA 
and INCLE headings.
    CARSI.--The Committee recommends not less than the budget 
request for CARSI.
    Colombia.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$175,000,000 apportioned directly to USAID for alternative 
development/institution building and local governance programs 
in Colombia, including $7,500,000 for human rights activities.
    The Committee recommends not less than $15,000,000 for 
Afro-Colombian and indigenous communities for projects 
developed in close consultation with such communities. The 
Committee is concerned with the rapid expansion of government 
sanctioned, as well as illegal, mining operations in or 
adjacent to these communities, and the resulting harmful 
social, environmental, and health impacts. In addition, these 
already marginalized communities have experienced increases in 
violence, including assassinations of social activists, as well 
as poverty and displacement. The Committee directs the 
Department of State and USAID to work with the Government of 
Colombia to address these issues as a priority.
    The Committee recommends not less than $3,000,000 for 
continued support for biodiversity conservation programs, and 
$500,000 for community-based programs to address the needs of 
children disabled by landmines and other causes related to the 
violence.
    Haiti.--The Committee recommends not less than the budget 
request for Haiti, and directs that assistance be made 
available, to the maximum extent practicable, in a manner that 
emphasizes the participation of Haitian NGOs and directly 
improves the security, economic and social well-being, and 
political status of Haitian women and girls. The Committee 
expects the Government of Haiti, USAID, and other donors to 
communicate directly and regularly with Haitian community 
leaders and civil society organizations about United States 
programs and plans.
    In order to obtain greater clarity and transparency 
regarding assistance for Haiti, not later than 180 days after 
enactment of this act, the Committee directs the Secretary of 
State to submit a report on United States-funded recovery and 
development efforts in Haiti, which shall also be posted on the 
Department of State's Web site, to include:
  --an assessment of the overall progress of the Haiti 
        Rebuilding and Development Strategy, including how the 
        USAID Forward agenda will be incorporated into the 
        Strategy, and any other significant modifications to 
        the Strategy during the preceding 6 months, with an 
        explanation of such changes;
  --a description of the process by which State and USAID will 
        establish time-bound goals and quantitative and 
        qualitative indicators to evaluate the progress, 
        achievement, and lack of achievement of efforts that 
        comprise the Strategy;
  --a description of U.S. Government programs contributing to 
        the Strategy, including the amounts obligated and 
        expended on such programs during the preceding 12 
        months, and data on the use of local implementing 
        partners at both prime and subprime levels and on the 
        use of direct funding to local and State institutions;
  --a description of the extent to which the GoH and Haitian 
        civil society and grassroots organizations have been 
        consulted in the determination of such time-bound goals 
        and in the design and implementation of new programs 
        under the Strategy;
  --disaggregated data, where available and appropriate, by 
        beneficiaries' region, sector, gender, and age;
  --a description of how consideration for vulnerable 
        populations, including IDPs, women, children, orphans, 
        and persons with disabilities, has been incorporated in 
        all stages of the design and implementation of new 
        programs; and
  --an assessment of the steps Haiti is taking to strengthen 
        its capacity to receive individuals who are removed, 
        excluded, or deported from the United States.
    The Committee directs USAID to consult with the Committee 
on plans and funding to implement the reforestration strategy 
commissioned after 2008 tropical storms, including to address 
vulnerable watersheds.
    The Committee also recommends funding for agriculture 
programs focused on staple crops, and public and private sector 
efforts to increase the availability of reliable, affordable 
electricity, including building the institutional capacity of 
the GoH to manage the electric grid.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to prioritize 
assistance to labor programs, particularly near the new Caracol 
Industrial Park, to assist the GoH to capitalize on U.S. trade 
preferences consistent with internationally recognized labor 
rights.
    Mexico.--The Committee recommends not less than $45,000,000 
for assistance for Mexico, including for additional economic 
development activities along the United States-Mexico border.

                            GLOBAL PROGRAMS

    Conflict Diamonds.--The Committee recommends $3,000,000 to 
implement programs to prevent diamonds from fueling conflict, 
including the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme. The 
Committee is concerned with reports that the Kimberley Process 
is failing to adequately prevent conflict diamonds from 
entering the international market. The Committee directs the 
Department of State to engage with members of the OECD to 
assess whether complementary mechanisms, such as those 
coordinated by the OECD for other minerals from high risk and 
conflict affected areas, are needed to prevent conflict 
diamonds from entering legitimate supply chains.
    Countering Violent Extremism.--The conferees recommend 
$10,500,000 under this heading for activities to counter 
violent extremism.
    Counterterrorism in Africa.--The Committee recommends 
$55,000,000 in this act for the Trans-Sahara Counterterrorism 
Partnership program, and $25,000,000 for the Partnership for 
Regional East Africa Counterterrorism program. The Committee 
directs that an additional $10,000,000 be made available for 
programs among vulnerable populations that are susceptible to 
terrorist influence, to be managed by USAID and coordinated 
with other Federal agencies.
    The Committee encourages the Department of State and USAID 
to support programs in the Sahel region to support the needs of 
IDPs and durable solutions that prioritize resettlement of 
refugees from camps near Tindoug, Algeria.
    Debt Relief/Sudan.--The Committee includes authority to 
transfer up to $250,000,000 under this heading for debt 
restructuring for Sudan, subject to a certification by the 
Secretary of State. The Committee intends that should the 
certification be impossible, such funds be used to address 
other development needs in Africa.
    Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative.--The 
Committee recommends $5,000,000 to support the EITI, including 
to enhance the capacity of civil society organizations to 
participate in the EITI process.
    Middle East Partnership Initiative.--The Committee includes 
funding for MEPI under the MENAIF heading.
    Middle East Regional Cooperation Program.--The Committee 
recommends $5,000,000 for MERC.
    Reconciliation Programs.--The Committee recommends a total 
of $26,000,000 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 $10,000,000 is for such programs and activities in the 
Middle East and North Africa region. Of this amount, 
$16,000,000 is provided under this heading and $10,000,000 is 
provided under the DA heading. Funds should be leveraged to 
secure contributions from other international donors, to the 
maximum extent practicable.
    The Committee also recommends funding for the ``New 
Generation in the Middle East'' initiative to build 
understanding, tolerance, and mutual respect among young 
Israelis and Palestinians of diverse economic and social 
backgrounds who have leadership potential. Such programs and 
activities are to be conducted in the region.
    War Crimes in Central Africa.--The Committee supports 
efforts by the United States, United Nations, African Union, 
and governments in Central Africa to capture Joseph Kony and 
top commanders of the LRA, and to assist victims of the LRA's 
crimes. The Committee recommends $10,000,000 to implement 
Public Law 111-172, including for programs to improve physical 
access, telecommunications infrastructure, and early-warning 
mechanisms, and to support the disarmament, demobilization, and 
reintegration of former LRA combatants, especially child 
soldiers. The Committee directs the Department of State to 
weigh the degree of cooperation by the Government of the DRC 
with the AU and other regional partners in efforts to counter 
the LRA when considering training additional DRC military 
battalions.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State, after 
consultation with the Secretary of Defense and the USAID 
Administrator, to submit a report detailing progress toward 
implementing the policy objectives in section 3 of Public Law 
111-172, and a description of U.S. assistance provided for such 
purposes. Such report shall be submitted in unclassified form, 
but may include a classified annex.

                             DEMOCRACY FUND

Appropriations, 2012....................................    $114,770,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................................
Committee recommendation................................     230,000,000

    The Committee recommends $230,000,000 for Democracy Fund, 
of which $136,000,000 is for DRL's Human Rights and Democracy 
Fund and $94,000,000 is for USAID's Center of Excellence for 
Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance. The Committee notes 
that the increase for the Democracy Fund is offset by an 
equivalent decrease in the fiscal year 2013 budget request for 
democracy programs.
    The Committee recognizes challenges in implementing 
democracy and human rights programs overseas, and that improved 
coordination and communication between DRL, USAID's Center, and 
NED would enhance the effectiveness of such programs. To avoid 
duplication, the Committee recommends that DRL implement 
democracy and human rights programs that directly support 
diplomatic goals and objectives and the key priorities of the 
Secretary of State, especially in restrictive environments; the 
Center support programs that are an integral part of country 
development strategies and that span the technical areas of 
elections, governance, human rights, civil society and media, 
and rule of law; and NED continue to target programs in 
countries and regions in which the advancement of democracy and 
human rights are particularly challenging.
    Of the funds appropriated under this heading for the HRDF, 
an additional $3,000,000 is for the Fundamental Freedom Fund, 
an additional $3,000,000 is for the Global Human Rights 
Defenders Fund, and an additional $3,000,000 is for 
International Religious Freedom activities. Funds made 
available for the Business and Human Rights program in the PRC 
shall be matched by sources other than U.S. Government.
    Ethiopia.--The Committee remains concerned with the 
Government of Ethiopia's repression of the media, political 
opposition, and civil society organizations and urges DRL and 
DCHA to support programs and organizations that promote freedom 
of expression, association, and assembly in Ethiopia as well as 
broadcasting into Ethiopia.
    Forensic Assistance.--The Committee recommends $1,500,000 
for continued support for forensic anthropology programs in 
countries of Central and South America where armed conflicts 
resulted in large numbers of human remains that have yet to be 
exhumed and/or identified, delaying justice and fostering 
impunity. These funds are to be administered by DRL.
    Internet Freedom.--The Committee supports continued funding 
for the Department of State's Internet freedom program and 
directs the Secretary of State to submit to the Committee, 
prior to the initial obligation of funds, a report detailing 
planned expenditures for this purpose. The Committee encourages 
continued coordination and cooperation between the Department 
of State, USAID, and BBG on the planning and implementation of 
programs. Funds shall be used to promote human rights by 
expanding open and uncensored access to information and 
communications, including mobile phones, through the Internet 
and other connection technologies, in accordance with the 
Department of State's Internet freedom strategy. The Committee 
encourages the Department of State to include digital security, 
digital safety training, and secure communication technologies 
that can also rapidly respond to threats to safe and uncensored 
access to information and communication. The Committee directs 
the Department of State to continue to monitor protections 
against tools being used for illicit purposes, and expects the 
Department to inform the Committee of any concerns.
    Labor Rights.--The Committee encourages DRL to expand 
programs that promote labor rights as a means of advancing 
American interests and values. DRL and USAID's Center should 
continue to support economic reforms that guarantee decent 
working conditions and include working people in decisions that 
shape their future.
    Mexico.--The Committee notes that Mexican journalists and 
social activists have been increasingly threatened and 
assassinated, and recommends increased support for programs to 
protect them.
    North Korea.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State 
to seek to ensure that multilateral organizations, including 
the United Nations and the OSCE, are aware of the database 
established with funds appropriated under this heading.
    Prison Conditions.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$3,000,000 under this heading to eliminate inhumane prison 
conditions. The Committee is aware that millions of 
incarcerated people in the world suffer inhumane conditions in 
prisons and other detention facilities that are overcrowded, 
unsanitary, and unsafe. Rates of malnutrition, disease, and 
death among prisoners and other detainees far exceed those of 
the general population, and medical treatment is often grossly 
inadequate. Excessive pre-trial detention and dysfunctional, 
corrupt justice systems frequently result in prisoners and 
other detainees spending years in such conditions before their 
cases are adjudicated. Inadequate, misplaced, or lost records 
result in prisoners and detainees being incarcerated without 
trial indefinitely, or being held long after their sentences 
have expired. Eliminating such conditions would strengthen the 
rule of law, protect human rights, and save lives.
    Sudan.--The Committee encourages DRL to support democracy 
and human rights programs in Sudan.
    Women's Political Participation.--The Committee directs 
that funds under this heading, and under the DA, ESF, MENAIF, 
and INCLE headings, be made available for programs to increase 
women's participation in political processes, including 
political parties, elections, and leadership positions in local 
and national governments. Funds should be awarded on a 
competitive basis, and in accordance with section 7059 of this 
act.

              MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA INCENTIVE FUND

Appropriations, 2012....................................................
Budget estimate, 2013...................................    $770,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,000,000,000

    The Committee recommends $1,000,000,000 for the Middle East 
and North Africa Incentive Fund, a new account that will 
provide the Department of State and USAID necessary flexibility 
to respond to unpredictable events arising from popular demands 
for economic and political reforms in those regions. The 
Committee recognizes the historic and unprecedented 
opportunities for change, and underscores that the 
administration's strong and consistent support for these 
reforms will further U.S. security interests in strategically 
important regions. In addition, this new account may prove 
essential in assisting key regional allies should tensions in 
the Middle East, particularly with Iran and in Syria, continue 
to heighten.
    The Committee recommends $70,000,000 for MEPI from within 
this fund, of which not less than $15,000,000 should be for 
scholarships for students at not-for-profit educational 
institutions, in a manner consistent with prior fiscal years, 
through an open and competitive process.
    The Committee requires the Secretary of State and USAID 
Administrator to consult with the Committee prior to the 
initial obligation of funds, and intends that the design, 
implementation, and oversight of programs will include the 
participation of civil society organizations in these 
countries, as appropriate.

                          Department of State


                    MIGRATION AND REFUGEE ASSISTANCE

Appropriations, 2012....................................  $1,868,100,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................   1,625,400,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,300,000,000

    The Committee recommends $2,300,000,000 for Migration and 
Refugee Assistance.
    The Committee is aware of the increasingly complex refugee 
and IDP crises arising from conflict and instability in Syria, 
Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, and Mali, and notes the destabilizing 
impact of such crises on neighboring countries and United 
States allies, including Jordan. The Committee recognizes the 
need to address instability arising from human migration in the 
Pan Sahel and Horn of Africa regions and to mitigate 
opportunities for the expansion of extremist groups, including 
al Qaeda affiliates. The Committee underscores that assistance 
provided under this heading should be incorporated into a 
broader strategy to address terrorism in Africa that includes 
programs to expand governance, economic development, and 
security.
    The Committee is also aware of the ongoing needs of 
refugees and IDPs in the East Asia and Pacific and Western 
Hemisphere regions.
    Afghanistan.--The Committee urges the Department of State 
and USAID to work with the GoA to prioritize assistance for 
conflict-affected and highly vulnerable Afghans through 
disaster risk reduction, food security, livelihoods, and other 
basic service delivery programs.
    Burma.--The Committee urges the Department of State to 
continue to engage with the Governments of India, Thailand and 
Malaysia, and the European Union, to address the needs of 
Burmese refugees.
    Colombia.--The Committee does not support the decrease in 
the budget request for refugees and IDPs in the Western 
Hemisphere, and recommends funding under this heading for 
increased assistance for Colombian IDPs and refugees.
    Ethiopia.--The Committee is concerned that Ethiopia's 
Administration for Refugee and Returnee Affairs, which receives 
most of its budget from UNHCR, has been restricting access and 
activities of humanitarian organizations in refugee camps, 
sites, and areas of new refugee arrivals and lacks the capacity 
to implement effective programs in some sectors. The Committee 
supports efforts by UNHCR to strengthen oversight of ARRA's 
management and the welfare of refugees, particularly in the 
Dollo Ado camps along the Somali border.
    Iraq.--The Committee notes that Iraqis who are being 
threatened or targeted for assassination as a result of having 
worked for the U.S. Government or U.S. contractors are facing 
long delays in obtaining admission to the United States as 
refugees, and the number of Iraqi refugees resettled in the 
United States has fallen sharply since fiscal year 2010. The 
Committee is aware that security concerns require thorough 
screening of these individuals, and expects the administration 
to make every effort to expedite refugee resettlement of the 
most vulnerable and maximize the use of Special Immigrant Visa 
processing while maintaining an effective screening process. 
The Committee is also concerned that some 1.5 million Iraqis 
remain displaced and in need of continuing assistance. The 
Committee expects the Department of State to continue to work 
to address the needs of Iraqi refugees and IDPs.
    Israel.--The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for refugee 
resettlement in Israel, to be awarded through an open and 
competitive process.
    North Korea.--The Committee supports funding to assist 
North Korean refugees, including in the PRC. The Committee 
condemns the forced repatration of North Korean refugees by the 
PRC, and supports the involvement of UNHCR and other 
international humanitarian agencies in protecting the rights of 
such refugees.
    Pakistan.--The Committee is aware that, according to the 
Internally Displaced Persons Vulnerability Assessment and 
Profiling [IVAP] mechanism funded by USAID and supported by the 
GoP and the United Nations, many families who are displaced as 
a result of the armed conflict are not registered to receive 
humanitarian aid. The Committee understands that this has 
resulted from flaws in the IDP registration system. The 
Committee emphasizes that United States funding shall be used 
to aid Pakistanis who are most in need, and directs the 
Department of State and USAID to ensure that conflict-affected 
IDPs receiving aid are those identified by IVAP.
    Protracted Refugee Situations.--The Committee recognizes 
that many large refugee populations, including Burmese, 
Somalis, Sudanese, Afghans, Bhutanese, Palestinians, and others 
have been unable to return home for generations.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit a 
report to the Committee not later than one year after enactment 
of this act, indicating:
      (a) the approximate number of people who, in the past 
        year, have received UNRWA services--
        (1) whose place of residence was Palestine between June 
            1946 and May 1948 and who were displaced as a 
            result of the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict; and
        (2) who are descendants of persons described in 
            subparagraph (1);
      (b) the extent to which the provision of such services to 
        such persons furthers the security interests of the 
        United States and of other United States allies in the 
        Middle East; and
      (c) the methodology and challenges in preparing such 
        report.
    Resettlement.--The Committee is concerned with the many 
formidable challenges facing refugees who have recently 
resettled in the United States, including cultural and language 
barriers, the rising cost of living, and limited affordable 
housing and employment opportunities. Local U.S. refugee 
assistance agencies are also stretched for resources, and the 
Committee urges PRM to take steps to address the financial 
needs of these newly resettled individuals and families.
    The Committee is also concerned that an increasing number 
of refugees resettling in the United States are experiencing 
difficulty repaying their travel loans, which sometimes results 
in credit impairment, despite available support to modify their 
repayment conditions. To ensure that refuges are aware of the 
support available, not later than 180 days after the enactment 
of this act the Secretary of State shall publish on the 
Department of State's Web site information on the loan 
repayment process for the Department's transportation loan 
program for refugees, including the process for requesting 
modifications to the loan repayment agreement such as an 
extension of time for repayment.
    Syria.--The Committee urges the Department of State and 
USAID to continue working with humanitarian organizations and 
Syria's neighbors to keep borders open to Syrians fleeing 
violence, provide access to basic services, and ensure their 
freedom of movement and the use of camps only as a last resort.
    Tibetan Refugees.--The Committee recommends additional 
assistance for Tibetan refugees in Nepal and India, and 
deplores the PRC's increasing repression of the Tibetan people. 
The Committee is concerned that Nepalese officials have handed 
over some Tibetan refugees to Chinese border authorities, in 
contravention of Nepal's international obligations to protect 
refugees fleeing persecution. The Committee supports efforts by 
the Secretary of State to work with the Government of Nepal to 
provide safe transit for Tibetan refugees and legal protections 
to Tibetans residing in Nepal.

     UNITED STATES EMERGENCY REFUGEE AND MIGRATION ASSISTANCE FUND

Appropriations, 2012....................................     $27,200,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................      50,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      50,000,000

    The Committee recommends $50,000,000 for United States 
Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund.

                          Independent Agencies


                              PEACE CORPS

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2012....................................    $375,000,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................     374,500,000
Committee recommendation................................     400,000,000

    The Committee recommends $400,000,000 for Peace Corps.
    The Committee supports the Peace Corps' efforts to 
implement Public Law 112-57.
    The Committee is informed that Executive Order 11103, which 
provides returned volunteers with 1 year of noncompetitive 
eligibility for Federal hiring, with possible extensions to 3 
years, in practice often results in volunteers only receiving 
this benefit for 1 year. The Committee directs the Peace Corps 
Director to submit a report within 120 days of enactment of 
this act, on whether the noncompetitive eligibility for Federal 
employment of returned Peace Corps volunteers (including Peace 
Corps Response volunteers) who serve in good standing should in 
all cases be extended for 3 years, or at least match the 
volunteers' length of service, without eliminating other 
grounds for extensions of noncompetitive eligibility for 
Federal employment. The Committee further directs the Peace 
Corps Director to recommend ways that human resource 
departments of all Federal agencies can be informed of the 
current noncompetitive eligibility of these individuals.
    The Committee includes a cap on Peace Corps representation 
expenses of $100,000, and within this amount limits domestic 
representation expenses to $3,000.
    The Peace Corps Director is directed to submit a spending 
plan not later than 45 days after enactment of this act on the 
proposed uses of funds under this heading.
    Funds appropriated under this heading are subject to the 
terms of section 7076 of this act.

                    MILLENNIUM CHALLENGE CORPORATION

Appropriations, 2012....................................    $898,200,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................     898,200,000
Committee recommendation................................     898,200,000

    The Committee recommends $898,200,000 for Millennium 
Challenge Corporation.
    The Committee continues to support the MCC's mission and 
appreciates the MCC's responsiveness to its directions and 
concerns. While the MCC has served as an incentive for 
candidate countries to meet eligibility criteria and compacts 
have improved the lives of many, according to the GAO compacts 
have not always produced transformational changes envisioned 
and the sustainability of some MCC investments remains in 
question. The MCC has, with the concurrence of the Committee, 
suspended or terminated several compacts due to coups d'etat 
and other governance issues.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State, the USAID 
Administrator, and the MCC CEO to jointly assess and report to 
the Committee, not later than 180 days after enactment of this 
act, on the extent to which compacts are aligned with U.S. 
strategic interests on a regional basis and with other Federal 
foreign assistance programs; the sustainability of the MCC's 
investments by host country governments; and whether lessons 
learned since the MCC's inception indicate a need for 
adjustments in the MCC's model of development.
    Funds in this account are subject to the requirements of 
section 7076 of this act.

                       INTER-AMERICAN FOUNDATION

Appropriations, 2012....................................     $22,500,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................      18,100,000
Committee recommendation................................      23,500,000

    The Committee recommends $23,500,000 for Inter-American 
Foundation.
    The Committee directs the president of the Inter-American 
Foundation to submit, not later than 45 days after enactment of 
this act, a revised policy on representation expenses 
consistent with section 7020(a) of this act.

                     AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION

Appropriations, 2012....................................     $30,000,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................      24,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      31,000,000

    The Committee recommends $31,000,000 for African 
Development Foundation.
    The Committee directs the president of the African 
Development Foundation to ensure that the Foundation's policy 
on representation expenses is consistent with section 7020(a) 
of this act.

                       Department of the Treasury


               INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

Budget estimate, 2013...................................      25,448,000
Committee recommendation................................      29,000,000

    The Committee recommends $29,000,000 for International 
Affairs Technical Assistance.

                           DEBT RESTRUCTURING

Appropriations, 2012....................................     $12,000,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................     250,000,000
Committee recommendation................................................

    The Committee does not recommend funding for Debt 
Restructuring under this heading. Funding for debt relief for 
Sudan, subject to conditions, is included under the ESF 
heading.

                                TITLE IV


                   INTERNATIONAL SECURITY ASSISTANCE


                          Department of State


          International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement

Appropriations, 2012....................................  $2,044,705,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................   2,506,502,000
    Enduring operations.................................   1,456,502,000
    Overseas contingency operations.....................   1,050,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,484,620,000

    The Committee recommends $1,484,620,000 for International 
Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to notify the 
Committee in writing, within 5 days of exercising authority 
allowing funds made available under this heading to be spent 
``notwithstanding any other provision of law'', and such 
notification shall include a justification of such activities.
    CARSI/CBSI.--The Committee continues support for CARSI and 
CBSI to address narcotics-related violence and corruption in 
Central America, with a focus on reform of judicial systems and 
professionalism of police forces. The Committee recognizes that 
the success of CARSI and CBSI programs depends on political 
support and leadership at the highest levels of Central 
American governments, including to hold corrupt officials 
accountable, and to protect judges, prosecutors, and witnesses.
    The Committee recommends that CARSI be used to establish 
Narcotics Affairs Sections at U.S. Embassies in El Salvador and 
other Central American countries, as appropriate.
    Central Asia Counternarcotics Initiative.--The Secretary of 
State is directed to consult with the Committee and other 
appropriate congressional committees prior to the initial 
obligation of funds for this initiative.
    Colombia.--The Committee recommends $145,000,000 for 
assistance for Colombia, including not less than $15,000,000 
for the Office of the Colombian Attorney General, of which 
$7,500,000 is for the human rights unit. The Committee directs 
the Secretary of State to submit a report on rule of law 
programs in Colombia, including the amounts and uses of funds, 
efforts by the Government of Colombia to end impunity, an 
assessment of the results to date, and benchmarks for measuring 
progress.
    The Committee is aware of growing concerns with the effects 
of glyphosate-based herbicides on the environment and human 
health in areas where such herbicides are widely used in 
agriculture, and recent scientific studies linking low doses of 
glyphosate to abnormalities in amphibian and chicken embryos. 
Women exposed to GBH during pregnancy have reportedly given 
birth to children with congenital malformations. The Committee 
requires the Secretary of State to certify, prior to the 
obligation of funds, that the toxic chemicals sprayed by the 
Colombian police do not pose unreasonable risks or adverse 
effects to humans, including pregnant women and children, or 
the environment, including endemic species.
    As in past years, the Committee does not support funding 
for aerial spraying of GBH in Colombia's national parks or 
reserves unless the Secretary of State reports in writing to 
the Committee, prior to the use of funds for such purpose, that 
there are no effective alternatives and the spraying is in 
accordance with Colombian laws and regulations.
    Consular Notification Compliance.--The purpose of section 
7090, Consular Notification Compliance, is to facilitate 
compliance with Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular 
Relations (``Vienna Convention''), done at Vienna April 24, 
1963 and any comparable provision of a bilateral international 
agreement addressing consular notification and access, and to 
provide a limited but important remedy for certain previous 
violations. This section was originally part of S. 1194, the 
Consular Notification Compliance Act of 2011.
    The Committee did not include in this bill the language 
found at section 3 of S. 1194, which set forth practical 
guidance for compliance with U.S. consular notification and 
access obligations, for two reasons. First, the Committee views 
that section as unnecessary because Article 36 of the Vienna 
Convention, and similar provisions in other comparable 
bilateral international agreements addressing consular 
notification and access, are self-executing and have automatic 
domestic effect as Federal law. Second, the Committee wants to 
encourage the work already being done by the Judicial 
Conference's Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure and 
the Uniform Law Commission to facilitate compliance with the 
Vienna Convention by Federal, State, and local officials. The 
Committee also did not include the language found at section 
4(a)(2) of S. 1194 that a Federal court grant a stay of 
execution if necessary to allow the court to review a petition 
filed under this section because Federal courts already have 
statutory authority to provide for a stay under such 
circumstances.
    In an effort to ensure the expeditious review of petitions 
and to conserve judicial resources, the Committee added several 
provisions that were absent from S. 1194. The initial showing 
provision limits review to those petitions where actual 
consular notification violations can be established or have 
been previously established, for example, in previous domestic 
or international court proceedings. Judicial resources are 
further conserved by allowing initial review and proposed 
recommendations and findings on a petition for review to be 
done by a magistrate judge and barring review of a petition if 
the claimed violation has previously been fully adjudicated by 
a Federal or State court. Finally, in order to ensure the 
prompt resolution of these cases, the Committee included a one 
year time limitation on Federal court review from the date a 
petition is filed.
    Guatemala.--The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for the 
International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala and 
supports the extension of CICIG's mandate beyond 2013, as 
necessary.
    The Committee remains concerned with the lack of 
professional, accountable police forces in Guatemala and urges 
the Department of State to work with the Government of 
Guatemala and civil society to implement a police reform 
strategy.
    Indonesia.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$11,550,000 for assistance for Indonesia.
    International Law Enforcement Academies.--The Committee 
recommends the budget request for the ILEAs.
    Mexico.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$199,000,000 for assistance for Mexico, and supports the 
prioritization of reform of national, state, and local judicial 
institutions and law enforcement, and cooperation between the 
United States and Mexico to combat organized crime and drug 
trafficking along the border.
    Philippines.--The Committee recommends $2,450,000 for 
assistance for the Philippines, which is equal to the budget 
request.
    Police Training.--The Committee is concerned that police 
training programs implemented by the Department of State have 
not always been suitably designed, effectively implemented, or 
sustainable, and urges the Department to conduct a rigorous 
review of these programs, utilizing outside experts as 
appropriate.
    Rule of Law Programs.--The Committee recommends funding for 
interagency rule of law training programs to improve the 
coordination and content of such programs conducted overseas. 
Fund are to be awarded on a competitive basis, in consultation 
with DRL.
    Tunisia.--The Committee recommends $8,000,000 for 
assistance for Tunisia, which is equal to the budget request.
    West Bank.--The Committee recommends $70,000,000 for 
assistance for the West Bank, which is equal to the budget 
request.

    NONPROLIFERATION, ANTI-TERRORISM, DEMINING, AND RELATED PROGRAMS

Appropriations, 2012....................................   $710,770,0000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................     635,668,000
Committee recommendation................................     695,668,000

    The Committee recommends $695,668,000 for Nonproliferation, 
Anti-terrorism, Demining and Related Programs.
    International Trust Fund for Demining and Mine Victims 
Assistance.--The Committee supports the expansion of ITF's work 
in mine removal, mine victim assistance, and the proper storage 
and disposition of small arms/light weapons beyond Eastern 
Europe and Eurasia.
    Nonproliferation, Demining, and Anti-terrorism 
Opportunities.--The Committee recognizes that dynamic change in 
the Near East and ongoing threats and humanitarian needs in 
other regions afford opportunities to conduct and expand 
nonproliferation, demining, and anti-terrorism programs, 
including in Syria should the current regime fall. The 
Committee recommends additional funding above the budget 
request to accelerate the U.S. response to such opportunities, 
which is in the security interests of the United States and 
regional allies.
    UXO Clearance.--The Committee prioritizes the clearance of 
landmines and other unexploded ordnance in areas where such 
ordnance was caused by the United States, and directs that not 
less than $10,000,000 be made available for UXO clearance in 
Laos.
    The Committee also intends that funds be used for UXO 
clearance in locations in the Oceania region that have high 
concentrations of U.S. UXO from World War II.

                        PEACEKEEPING OPERATIONS

Appropriations, 2012....................................    $383,818,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................     249,100,000
Committee recommendation................................     391,100,000

    The Committee recommends $391,100,000 for Peacekeeping 
Operations.
    MFO.--The Committee recommends $28,000,000 for the 
Multinational Force and Observers, including $2,000,000 to 
address force protection enhancements. The Committee expects 
the MFO to account for and apply funds in a manner such that 
the principle of equality of contributions to the basic 
operating budget between the United States, Egypt, and Israel 
shall be maintained.
    Somalia.--The Committee recommends up to $142,100,000 for 
UN assessed peacekeeping costs in Somalia.

                  Funds Appropriated to the President


             INTERNATIONAL MILITARY EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Appropriations, 2012....................................    $105,788,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................     102,643,000
Committee recommendation................................     103,018,000

    The Committee recommends $103,018,000 for International 
Military Education and Training.
    The Committee is concerned that of the $38,944 spent in 
fiscal year 2011 on IMET representation expenses approximately 
25 percent was used for items such as ball caps, coins, and 
tote bags. The Committee directs the Secretary of State to 
eliminate expenditures for these types of items.
    Ethiopia.--The Committee is concerned with the Government 
of Ethiopia's use of anti-terrorism laws to imprison 
journalists, political opponents, and others calling for free 
and fair elections and basic rights. The Committee urges the 
Departments of State and Defense to apply a consistent policy 
to the Ethiopian military and police, who enforce the 
government's repressive policies.
    Indonesia.--The Committee recommends $1,800,000 for 
assistance for Indonesia.
    Jordan.--The Committee recommends $3,800,000 for assistance 
for Jordan, which is equal to the budget request
    Philippines.--The Committee recommends $1,850,000 for 
assistance for the Philippines.
    Tunisia.--The Committee recommends $2,300,000 for 
assistance for Tunisia, which is equal to the budget request.

                   FOREIGN MILITARY FINANCING PROGRAM

Appropriations, 2012....................................  $6,312,000,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................   6,383,320,000
    Enduring operations.................................   5,472,320,000
    Overseas contingency operations.....................     911,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   5,849,820,000

    The Committee provides $5,849,820,000 for Foreign Military 
Financing Program.
    Colombia.--The Committee recommends $30,000,000 for 
assistance for Colombia, in accordance with the requirements of 
section 7045(a)(2) of this act. Of this amount, 25 percent may 
be obligated only if the Secretary of State consults with, and 
subsequently certifies and submits a report to, the Committee 
that:
  --the Colombian military is suspending those members, of 
        whatever rank, who have been credibly alleged to have 
        violated human rights, or to have aided, abetted or 
        benefitted from criminal or illegal armed groups; all 
        such cases are made subject only to civilian 
        jurisdiction for all stages of the investigation and 
        prosecution, and the Colombian military is not opposing 
        civilian jurisdiction in such cases and is cooperating 
        fully with civilian prosecutors and judicial 
        authorities;
  --the Government of Colombia is not taking steps that could 
        result in immunity from prosecution or the suspension 
        of sentences for persons responsible for crimes against 
        humanity, war crimes, or other gross violations of 
        human rights;
  --the Government of Colombia is dismantling paramilitary 
        networks and their successor groups, including by 
        arresting and prosecuting in civilian courts 
        individuals who have aided, abetted, or benefitted from 
        paramilitary organizations or other criminal or illegal 
        armed groups; supporting investigations by civilian 
        judicial authorities into links between public 
        officials and paramilitary groups; and returning land 
        and other assets illegally acquired by such 
        organizations or their associates to their rightful 
        occupants or owners; and
  --the Government of Colombia is taking steps to protect the 
        rights of human rights defenders, journalists, trade 
        unionists, IDP leaders, and other social activists, and 
        respecting the rights and territory of indigenous and 
        Afro-Colombian communities; and the Colombian military 
        is implementing rigorous procedures to distinguish 
        between civilians, including IDPs, and combatants, in 
        their operations.
    Eastern and Central Europe.--The Committee recognizes the 
important contributions of NATO, including its newer members, 
to coalition operations in Afghanistan and elsewhere, and 
supports continued funding for such countries under this 
heading.
    Guatemala.--The Committee supports assistance for the 
Guatemalan coast guard, navy, and air force to enhance regional 
naval cooperation, maritime, and border security. The Committee 
is aware of several investigations and prosecutions of former 
army personnel for disappearances, torture, and extra-judicial 
executions during the internal armed conflict. The Committee 
will consider a future budget request for assistance for the 
army, if the army:
  --has a narrowly defined mission focused on border security 
        and external threats, and a timetable for ending the 
        army's involvement in internal law enforcement;
  --is cooperating fully with civilian investigations and 
        prosecutions of human rights cases involving current 
        and retired military officers of whatever rank, with 
        the Inter-American Court on Human Rights, and with 
        CICIG, including providing timely access for 
        investigators to witnesses, documents, forensic 
        evidence, and other relevant information; and
  --is publicly disclosing all military archival documents 
        relating to the internal armed conflict in a timely 
        manner in response to requests by civilian judicial 
        authorities.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State, after 
consultation with Guatemalan and international human rights 
organizations, to submit a report not later than 120 days after 
enactment of this act assessing the army's progress in meeting 
each of the above requirements, detailing any additional steps 
the army should take, and identifying the quantitative and 
qualitative indicators used to measure progress. The report 
should also include:
  --the number of human rights cases in which military 
        personnel have been prosecuted and appropriately 
        punished, and the extent of the army's cooperation in 
        such cases;
  --the extent of military archival documents publicly 
        disclosed by the army; and
  --the extent of the army's involvement in internal law 
        enforcement.
    Honduras.--The Committee is concerned with increasing 
violence in Honduras involving large landowners, criminal 
organizations, peasant groups, militias, and Honduran security 
forces. Assassinations of human rights defenders, journalists, 
and social activists are common. In accordance with section 
7045(a) of this act, the Committee withholds 25 percent of 
assistance in this act for Honduran military and police forces, 
which may be obligated only if the Secretary of State reports 
in writing to the Committee that:
  --the Government of Honduras is implementing policies to 
        protect freedom of expression, association, and 
        assembly, and due process of law; and is investigating 
        and prosecuting in the civilian justice system, in 
        accordance with Honduran and international law, 
        military and police personnel who are credibly alleged 
        to have violated human rights; and
  --the Honduran military and police are cooperating with 
        civilian judicial authorities in such cases.
    Indonesia.--The Committee notes the progress Indonesia has 
made in strengthening democracy, improving the rule of law, and 
addressing other challenges. However, military reform, 
particularly accountability for past crimes, continues to lag 
behind.
    The Committee recommends not less than $14,000,000 for 
assistance for Indonesia. Of this amount, in accordance with 
section 7044(c) of this act, $2,000,000 may not be obligated 
until the Secretary of State reports in writing to the 
Committee on:
  --steps taken by the Government of Indonesia in the previous 
        12 months to revise the Code of Military Justice, 
        Uniform Criminal Code and other relevant statutes, to 
        deny promotion, suspend from active service, and/or 
        prosecute and appropriately punish military officers 
        credibly alleged to have violated human rights, and to 
        refine further the military's mission and develop an 
        appropriate national defense budget to carry out that 
        mission;
  --efforts by the military in the previous 12 months to 
        cooperate with civilian judicial authorities to resolve 
        cases of violations of human rights;
  --efforts by the military in the previous 12 months to 
        implement reforms that increase the transparency and 
        accountability of the military's budget and operations, 
        and concrete steps taken to achieve divestment of all 
        military businesses; and
  --whether the Government of Indonesia is allowing public 
        access to Papua, and respecting due process and freedom 
        of expression, association, and assembly in Papua.
    Kenya.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State to 
take steps to ensure that no United States training, equipment, 
or other assistance is provided to any Kenyan military or 
police personnel who have been credibly alleged to have 
violated human rights at: Mount Elgon in March 2008; Garissa, 
Wajir and Mandera in North Eastern Kenya between November 2011 
and January 2012; and in the Dadaab refugee camps in North 
Eastern Kenya in December 2011. The Secretary shall submit a 
report to the Committee on steps taken by the Government of 
Kenya to conduct thorough, credible investigations of such 
violations and the identification of military units 
responsible.
    Mexico.--The Committee remains concerned with impunity 
among Mexican military and police forces for violations of 
human rights. In accordance with section 7045(f) of this act, 
the Committee withholds 15 percent of assistance in this act 
for Mexican military and police forces, which may be obligated 
only if the Secretary of State reports in writing to the 
Committee that:
  --the Government of Mexico, in accordance with Mexican and 
        international law, has reformed the military justice 
        system to require that military and police personnel 
        who are credibly alleged to have violated human rights 
        are investigated and prosecuted in the civilian justice 
        system;
  --the Government of Mexico is enforcing prohibitions against 
        torture and the use of testimony obtained through 
        torture; and
  --the Mexican military and police are immediately 
        transferring detainees to the custody of civilian 
        judicial authorities, in accordance with Mexican law, 
        and are cooperating with such authorities in such 
        cases.
    Middle East.--The Committee recommends the budget requests 
under this heading for Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and 
$17,500,000 for assistance for Tunisia.
    The Committee supports Egypt's transition to civilian 
government and notes the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces' 
responsibility to safeguard that transition.
    Pakistan.--The Committee expands the uses of FMF assistance 
for Pakistan for counterpiracy efforts.
    Philippines.--The Committee recommends $30,000,000 for 
assistance for the Philippines, which the Committee understands 
will be used primarily to support the Philippine Navy and Air 
Force.
    The Committee notes that the Government of the Philippines 
has taken steps to reduce extra-judicial executions by military 
personnel and militias, but new cases have been reported and 
impunity for these crimes continues. In accordance with section 
7044(f) of this act, $3,000,000 may not be obligated unless the 
Secretary of State reports in writing to the Committee that:
  --the Government of the Philippines is taking effective steps 
        to prosecute those responsible for EJEs, sustain the 
        decline in the number of EJEs, and strengthen 
        government institutions working to eliminate EJEs;
  --the Government of the Philippines is implementing a policy 
        of promoting military personnel who demonstrate 
        professionalism and respect for human rights, and is 
        investigating, prosecuting, and punishing military 
        personnel and others who have been credibly alleged to 
        have violated such rights; and
  --the Philippine military, and militias and paramilitary 
        groups under its control, are not engaging in acts of 
        violence or intimidation against journalists or members 
        of legal organizations who advocate for human rights.
    Sri Lanka.--The Committee continues restrictions on 
assistance, export licenses, sales and transfers of equipment 
for the Sri Lankan military unless, in accordance with section 
7046(d) of this act, the Secretary of State certifies to the 
Committee that the Government of Sri Lanka is:
  --conducting credible, thorough investigations of alleged war 
        crimes and violations of international humanitarian law 
        by government forces and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil 
        Eelam;
  --bringing to justice individuals who have been credibly 
        alleged to have committed such violations;
  --supporting and cooperating with any United Nations 
        investigation of alleged war crimes and violations of 
        international humanitarian law;
  --implementing policies to protect judicial independence; 
        freedom of expression, association, assembly, and 
        religion; the right of political parties, civil society 
        organizations, and journalists to operate without 
        harassment or interference; and due process of law, 
        including ending arrest and detention under emergency-
        type regulations;
  --providing access to detainees by humanitarian 
        organizations; and
  --implementing policies to promote reconciliation and justice 
        including the demilitarization of public administration 
        and development activities in the north, and devolution 
        of power.
    The Committee endorses the recommendations contained in the 
Secretary of State's April 2012 report entitled ``Measures 
Taken by the Government of Sri Lanka and International Bodies 
to Investigate and Hold Accountable Violators of International 
Humanitarian and Human Rights Law'', including that the 
Government of Sri Lanka establish an independent mechanism to 
investigate the credible allegations of war crimes and 
violations of international humanitarian law that the Lessons 
Learnt and Reconciliation Commission failed to address.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit a 
report to the Committee not later than 60 days after enactment 
of this act, detailing steps taken by the Government of Sri 
Lanka to implement such recommendations and, absent credible 
steps, further recommendations of the Secretary for 
international bodies to independently investigate such 
allegations and to hold perpetrators accountable. The report 
shall also indicate:
  --if suspected combatants detained during the conflict remain 
        in custody;
  --if humanitarian organizations have access to such 
        detainees;
  --the extent to which the Government of Sri Lanka is 
        protecting judicial independence, freedom of 
        expression, association, assembly, and religion; the 
        right of political opposition parties, civil society 
        organizations, and journalists to operate without 
        harassment or interference; and due process of law; and
  --if the Government of Sri Lanka has ended military control 
        over public administration in the north and taken steps 
        to investigate repots of continuing violence against 
        protestors, disappearances, and extra-judicial 
        punishments in that region.
    Uzbekistan.--The Committee notes that the administration is 
relying increasingly on the cooperation of the Government of 
Uzbekistan to transport supplies to United States troops in 
Afghanistan. The Committee is aware, however, that the GoU 
continues to repress its own citizens. The administration 
should continue to urge the GoU to release imprisoned human 
rights defenders and political prisoners, allow NGOs to operate 
without interference, cooperate with U.N. human rights 
monitors, guarantee freedom of speech and of the media, 
implement conventions against child labor, and fully align its 
election processes with OSCE guidelines.

                        ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2012....................................     $89,900,000
Budget estimate, 2013...................................     103,900,000
Committee recommendation................................     103,900,000

    The Committee recommends $4,400,000 for the Inspector 
General, $38,000,000 for subsidy appropriation, and 
$103,900,000 for administrative expenses for the Export-Import 
Bank (the Bank), including $3,500,000 to support opening four 
new regional offices and 17 additional staff focusing on 
supporting small businesses, and $7,000,000 to fund technology 
upgrades to streamline the loan process. The Committee 
encourages the Bank to enhance its support for U.S. companies 
seeking to expand exports to Africa and other emerging markets.
    The Committee directs that the use of the aggregate loan, 
guarantee, and insurance authorities available to the Bank in 
fiscal year 2013 should not result in greenhouse gas emissions 
from the extraction or production of fossil fuels or the use of 
fossil fuels in electricity generation that exceed the average 
of the total emissions in the preceding three fiscal years 
resulting from the use of these authorities unless, not less 
than 15 days prior to each such use of such authorities in 
fiscal year 2013, the Bank provides a written report to the 
Committee that such use would result in emissions exceeding 
this amount and indicating the amount of the increase, and 
posts such report on the Bank's Web site.
    The Committee directs the President of the Bank to provide, 
not later than 45 days after enactment of this act, a revised 
policy on the use of representation funds that is consistent 
with the provisions in section 7020(a) of this act.

Budget estimate, 2013...................................      31,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      31,000,000

    The Committee recommends $60,784,000 for administrative 
expenses and $31,000,000 for the costs of direct and guaranteed 
loans for the Overseas Private Investment Corporation.
    The Committee directs the President of OPIC to provide, not 
later than 45 days after enactment of this act, a revised 
policy on the use of representation funds that is consistent 
with the provisions in section 7020(a) of this act.
    The Committee supports the implementation of a memorandum 
of understanding between OPIC and the USAID OIG, and directs 
the President of OPIC to implement the agreement, including an 
inspection/audit plan, as authorized, and allocate adequate 
funding to support the mutually agreed upon plan in fiscal year 
2013 to reimburse the USAID OIG for costs related to oversight 
and audit functions. If the fiscal year 2014 budget request 
includes a proposal to consolidate OPIC with the Export-Import 
Bank and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, the Committee 
expects the proposal to also consolidate the inspector general 
function for these three agencies.
    The Committee supports the continued presence of an Office 
of Accountability within OPIC to evaluate compliance with 
environmental, social, labor, human rights, and transparency 
standards, and directs the President of OPIC to work with the 
USAID OIG to determine the appropriate continued role of this 
office in light of the USAID OIG's oversight role.
    The Committee encourages OPIC to consult with relevant 
Federal agencies and civil society organizations on the 
advisability of adopting an investment policy that supports the 
export of nuclear energy products and services to countries 
that are developing or expanding their nuclear energy program. 
U.S. participation in global nuclear development could enhance 
nuclear power plant safety and reliability, increase influence 
over nuclear nonproliferation policy, and create American jobs. 
The Committee recognizes, however, that such an investment 
policy would raise serious nonproliferation issues needing 
thorough consideration, as many countries lack the ability to 
safeguard nuclear material.

                      TRADE AND DEVELOPMENT AGENCY

Budget estimate, 2013...................................      57,600,000

    The Committee recommends $57,600,000 for Trade and 
Development Agency.
    The Committee directs the President of the Trade and 
Development Agency to provide, not later than 45 days after 
enactment of this act, a revised policy on the use of 
representation funds that is consistent with the provisions in 
section 7020(a) of this act.

                    OVERSEAS CONTINGENCY OPERATIONS

    The Committee recommends a total of $2,293,000,000 for 
overseas contingency operations for the Department of State and 
USAID.

                          DEPARTMENT OF STATE


                   Administration of Foreign Affairs


                    DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR PROGRAMS

    The Committee recommends $1,426,000,000 for Diplomatic and 
Consular Programs, of which $651,000,000 is for Worldwide 
Security Protection. The amount provided is for the 
extraordinary costs of operations in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and 
Iraq, and is designated for OCO.
    The Committee directs that the spend plan required by 
section 7076 of this act include a detailed description of the 
designated amounts by category, break-out costs of operations 
by location, and staffing levels for each location and 
provincial area, where applicable. In addition, with respect to 
funds transferred to other agencies in support of Afghanistan 
operations, the spend plan should include projected transfer 
amounts and the number of staff supported by each agency.

                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

    The Committee recommends $55,900,000 for the Office of 
Inspector General at the Department of State, of which 
$49,900,000 is for SIGAR and $6,000,000 is for SIGIR. The 
amount provided is for the extraordinary costs of program 
oversight in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq, and is designated 
for OCO.
    Section 7076 of this act requires the relevant department, 
agency, or organization to submit to the Committee a spend plan 
for funds appropriated in titles I and II of this act. The 
Committee expects both SIGAR and SIGIR to submit such plans not 
later than 30 days after enactment of this act.
    The budget request did not include fiscal year 2013 funding 
for SIGIR but the Committee understands that SIGIR requires 
funding to draw down by March 31, 2013, and that SIGIR's 
investigative branch requires operating funds until March 31, 
2014 to close out open investigations. The Committee recommends 
funding to complete SIGIR operations, with the exception of the 
investigative branch, by March 31, 2013, and authority and 
adequate funding to transfer SIGIR investigators to SIGAR until 
this function draws down no later than March 31, 2014. The 
Committee expects SIGIR and SIGAR to coordinate this transfer 
and minimize administrative, support, and rent costs, and to 
ensure the timely close-out of all SIGIR investigative cases.

                      International Organizations


              CONTRIBUTIONS TO INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

    The Committee recommends $101,300,000 for Contributions to 
International Organizations for the extraordinary costs of 
operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, and is designated for OCO.

           UNITED STATES AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT


                  Funds Appropriated to the President


                           OPERATING EXPENSES

    The Committee recommends $109,800,000 for Operating 
Expenses for the extraordinary costs of operations in 
Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq, and is designated for OCO.

                     BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE


                  Funds Appropriated to the President


                         ECONOMIC SUPPORT FUND

    The Committee recommends $600,000,000 for Economic Support 
Fund for the extraordinary costs of operations in Afghanistan, 
Pakistan, and Iraq, and is designated for OCO.

     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. deg.
