                       [To accompany H. Res. 260]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 260, by a nonrecord vote, report the same to 
the House with the recommendation that the resolution be 
adopted.

                SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF THE RESOLUTION

    The resolution provides for further consideration of H.R. 
1960, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 
2014, under a structured rule. The resolution provides that no 
further general debate shall be in order. The resolution makes 
in order as original text for purpose of amendment an amendment 
in the nature of a substitute consisting of the text of Rules 
Committee Print 113-13, modified by the amendment printed in 
part A of this report. That amendment in the nature of a 
substitute shall be considered as read. The resolution waives 
all points of order against that amendment in the nature of a 
substitute. The resolution makes in order only those further 
amendments printed in part B of this report and amendments en 
bloc described in Section 3 of the resolution. The resolution 
provides that the amendments printed in part B of this report 
may be offered only in the order printed in this report, may be 
offered only by a Member designated in this report, shall be 
considered as read, shall be debatable for the time specified 
in this report equally divided and controlled by the proponent 
and an opponent, shall not be subject to amendment, and shall 
not be subject to a demand for division of the question in the 
House or in the Committee of the Whole. The resolution waives 
all points of order against the amendments printed in part B of 
this report or against amendments en bloc as described in 
section 3 of the resolution.
    Section 3 of the resolution provides that it shall be in 
order at any time for the chair of the Committee on Armed 
Services or his designee to offer amendments en bloc consisting 
of amendments printed in part B of this report not earlier 
disposed of. Amendments en bloc shall be considered as read, 
shall be debatable for 20 minutes equally divided and 
controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the 
Committee on Armed Services or their designees, shall not be 
subject to amendment, and shall not be subject to a demand for 
division of the question. The original proponent of an 
amendment included in such amendments en bloc may insert a 
statement in the Congressional Record immediately before the 
disposition of the amendments en bloc.
    Finally, the resolution provides one motion to recommit 
with or without instructions.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the amendment in the nature of a substitute made in order as 
original text includes waivers of the following points of 
order:
    Clause 4 of rule XXI, prohibiting reporting a bill or joint 
resolution carrying an appropriation from a committee not 
having jurisdiction to report an appropriation. Section 802 of 
the bill includes language allowing the Secretary of Defense to 
retain and use royalties collected on intellectual property 
developed at a Department of Defense laboratory, which 
constitutes an appropriation;
    Clause 7 of rule XVI, requiring that no motion or 
proposition on a subject different from that under 
consideration shall be admitted under color of amendment. 
Provisions contained in Rules Committee Print 113-13 fall 
outside of the jurisdiction of the Committee on Armed Services; 
and
    Section 306 of the Congressional Budget Act, consideration 
of legislation within the jurisdiction of the Committee on the 
Budget unless referred to or reported by the Budget Committee.
    It is important to note that while the waivers are 
applicable to Rules Committee Print 113-13, the Rules Committee 
Print is identical to the bill as ordered reported by the 
Committee on Armed Services.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
amendments printed in Part B of this report or against 
amendments en bloc as described in Section 3 of the resolution, 
the Committee is not aware of any points of order. The waiver 
is prophylactic in nature.

  21. An Amendment To Be Offered by Representative Turner (OH) or His 
                   Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

  Page 79, after line 23, insert the following:

SEC. 241. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON NEGOTIATIONS AFFECTING THE MISSILE 
                    DEFENSES OF THE UNITED STATES.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) On April 15, 2013, the National Security Advisor 
        to the President, Tom Donilon, conveyed a personal 
        letter from President Obama to the President of the 
        Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin.
          (2) Press reports indicate that in this letter the 
        President proposed, ``developing a legally-binding 
        agreement on transparency, which would include exchange 
        of information to confirm that our programs do not pose 
        a threat to each other's deterrence forces,'' through 
        ``a so-called executive agreement, for which [the 
        President] does not need to seek the consent of 
        Congress.''.
          (3) The Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia, Sergei 
        Ryabkov, stated in response to the letter that, ``the 
        proposals of the U.S. side on the issue are quite 
        concrete and are related in a certain way to the 
        discussions our countries had at various levels in the 
        past years. And it cannot be said from this point of 
        view that the offers are decorative and not serious. 
        No, I want to emphasize that we are committing to the 
        seriousness of these proposals but we note their 
        insufficiency.''.
          (4) Press reports indicate that the Secretary of the 
        Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, conveyed a 
        response to the letter from President Putin.
          (5) President Obama's proposed deal with Russian 
        President Putin has been kept secret from Congress and 
        the American people.
          (6) The Administration has systematically denied 
        Congress information about past offers of U.S. missile 
        defense concessions to Russia, including written 
        requests from Members of the House of Representatives.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) the President should promptly convey to Congress 
        the details of any proposed deals with the Russian 
        Federation concerning the missile defenses or nuclear 
        arms of the United States; and
          (2) the missile defenses of the United States are 
        central to the defense of the homeland from ballistic 
        missile threats, particularly if nuclear deterrence 
        fails, thus such defenses are not something that the 
        President should continue to trade away for the 
        prospects of nuclear arms reductions with Russia, the 
        People's Republic of China, or any other foreign 
        country.

SEC. 1257. REMOVAL OF BRIGADE COMBAT TEAMS FROM EUROPE.

  (a) Finding.--Congress finds that, because defense spending 
among European NATO countries fell 12% since 2008, from $314 
billion to $275 billion, so that currently only 4 out of the 28 
NATO allies of the United States are spending the widely 
agreed-to standard of 2% of their GDP on defense, the United 
States must look to more wisely allocate scarce resources to 
provide for the national defense.
  (b) Removal Required.--The President shall end the permanent 
basing of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment (2CR) in Vilseck, Germany 
and return that Brigade Combat Team currently stationed in 
Europe to the United States, without permanent replacement, 
leaving one Brigade Combat Team and one Combat Aviation 
Brigade.
  (c) Use of Rotational Forces to Satisfy Security Needs.--It 
is the policy of the United States that the deployment of units 
of the United States Armed Forces on a rotational basis at 
military installations in European member nations of the North 
Atlantic Treaty Organization pursuant to the Army Force 
Generation (ARFORGEN) process is a force-structure arrangement 
sufficient to permit the United States--
          (1) to satisfy the commitments undertaken by United 
        States pursuant to Article 5 of the North Atlantic 
        Treaty, signed at Washington, District of Columbia, on 
        April 4, 1949, and entered into force on August 24, 
        1949 (63 Stat. 2241; TIAS 1964);
          (2) to address the current security environment in 
        Europe; and
          (3) to contribute to peace and stability in Europe.
  (d) Rule of Construction.--Nothing in this section shall be 
construed so as to require the removal of Landstuhl Regional 
Medical Center or to prohibit the utilization of the 82nd 
Airborne's Division Readiness Brigade, Marine Corps Fleet Anti-
Terrorism Security Teams, Marine Corps Special-Purpose Marine 
Air-Ground Task Forces, Marine Corps expeditionary units,

        for the dignity of such leaders;

        United States officials in United States executive 
        departments;
          (3) allow the Taipei Economic and Cultural 
        Representative Office and all other instrumentalities 
        established in the United States by Taiwan to conduct 
        business activities, including activities which involve 
        participation by Members of Congress and other 
        representatives of Federal, State, and local 
        governments, and all high-level Taiwan officials, 
        without obstruction from the United States Government 
        or any foreign power; and
          (4) adopt a policy of allowing high-ranking Taiwan 
        leaders to make official visits with high-ranking 
        officials of the United States, including official 
        visits by Taiwan's democratically elected president, 
        and allowing for visits between these officials in 
        Washington, D.C.

                   Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

  Page 232, after line 18, insert the following:

SEC. 555. TRANSITION OF MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES AND THEIR FAMILIES 
                    FROM MILITARY TO CIVILIAN LIFE.

  (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
          (1) Members of the Armed Forces and their families 
        make great sacrifices on behalf of the United States, 
        and, when their active duty service is successfully 
        concluded, members deserve the opportunity to also make 
        a successful transition to the civilian labor force.
          (2) When transitioning from active duty in the Armed 
        Forces to civilian employment, members often face 
        barriers that make it difficult to fully utilize the 
        skills and training they gained during their military 
        service.
          (3) Members and veterans are too often required to 
        repeat education or training in order to receive 
        industry certifications and State occupational 
        licenses, even though their military training and 
        experience often overlaps with the certification or 
        licensing requirements.
          (4) When members are transferred from military 
        assignment to military assignment, their spouses often 
        face barriers to transferring their credentials and to 
        securing employment in their new location.
          (5) More than one million members will make the 
        transition to civilian life in the coming years.
          (6) The Department of Defense established the 
        Military Credentialing and Licensing Task Force in 
        2012.
          (7) The Joining Forces program, a national initiative 
        to mobilize all sectors of society to give members of 
        the Armed Forces and their families the opportunities 
        and support they have earned, will make it easier for 
        members and their families to transfer skills learned 
        while the member was serving in the Armed Forces to 
        civilian employment.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) the Federal Government and State governments 
        should make the transition of a member of the Armed 
        Forces and the member's spouse from military to 
        civilian life as seamless as possible by creating 
        opportunities for the member and spouse to earn, while 
        the member is in the Armed Forces, civilian 
        occupational credentials and licenses, with an emphasis 
        on well-paying industries and occupations that have a 
        high demand for skilled workers, including: 
        manufacturing, information technology, transportation 
        and logistics, health care, and emergency medical 
        services;
          (2) the Federal Government should assist State 
        governments in translating military training and 
        experience into credit towards professional licensure; 
        and
          (3) State governments should streamline approaches 
        for assessing the equivalency of military training and 
        experience, and accelerate occupational licensing 
        processes for members, veterans, and their spouses.

        the Secretary concerned.
  (b) Waiver Authority.--The Secretary of a military department

  (d) Effective Date.--The requirement imposed by subsection 
(a) shall take effect on January 1, 2014.

SEC. 5__. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING THE RECOVERY OF THE REMAINS OF 
                    CERTAIN MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES KILLED IN 
                    THURSTON ISLAND, ANTARCTICA.

  (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
          (1) Commencing August 26, 1946, though late February 
        1947 the United States Navy Antarctic Developments 
        Program Task Force 68, codenamed ``Operation Highjump'' 
        initiated and undertook the largest ever-to-this-date 
        exploration of the Antarctic continent.
          (2) The primary mission of the Task Force 68 
        organized by Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd Jr. USN, 
        (Ret) and led by Rear Admiral Richard H. Cruzen, USN, 
        was to do the following:
                  (A) Establish the Antarctic research base 
                Little America IV.
                  (B) In the defense of the United States of 
                America from possible hostile aggression from 
                abroad--to train personnel test equipment, 
                develop techniques for establishing, 
                maintaining and utilizing air bases on ice, 
                with applicability comparable to interior 
                Greenland, where conditions are similar to 
                those of the Antarctic.
                  (C) Map and photograph a full two-thirds of 
                the Antarctic Continent during the classified, 
                hazardous duty/volunteer-only operation 
                involving 4700 sailors, 23 aircraft and 13 
                ships including the first submarine the U.S.S. 
                Sennet, and the aircraft carrier the U.S.S. 
                Philippine Sea, brought to the edge of the ice 
                pack to launch (6) Navy ski-equipped, rocket-
                assisted R4Ds.
                  (D) Consolidate and extend United States 
                sovereignty over the largest practicable area 
                of the Antarctic continent.
                  (E) Determine the feasibility of 
                establishing, maintaining and utilizing bases 
                in the Antarctic and investigating possible 
                base sites.
          (3) While on a hazardous duty/all volunteer mission 
        vital to the interests of National Security and while 
        over the eastern Antarctica coastline known as the 
        Phantom Coast, the PBM-5 Martin Mariner ``Flying Boat'' 
        ``George 1'' entered a whiteout over Thurston Island. 
        As the pilot attempted to climb, the aircraft grazed 
        the glacier's ridgeline and exploded within 5 seconds 
        instantly killing Ensign Maxwell Lopez, Navigator and 
        Wendell ``Bud'' Hendersin, Aviation Machinists Mate 1st 
        Class while Frederick Williams, Aviation Radioman 1st 
        Class died several hours later. Six other crewmen 
        survived including the Captain of the ``George 1's'' 
        seaplane tender U.S.S. Pine Island.
          (4) The bodies of the dead were protected from the 
        desecration of Antarctic scavenging birds (Skuas) by 
        the surviving crew wrapping the bodies and temporarily 
        burying the men under the starboard wing engine 
        nacelle.
          (5) Rescue requirements of the ``George-1'' survivors 
        forced the abandonment of their crewmates' bodies.
          (6) Conditions prior to the departure of Task Force 
        68 precluded a return to the area to the recover the 
        bodies.
          (7) For nearly 60 years Navy promised the families 
        that they would recover the men: ``If the safety, 
        logistical, and operational prerequisites allow a 
        mission in the future, every effort will be made to 
        bring our sailors home.''.
          (8) The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command twice 
        offered to recover the bodies of this crew for Navy.
          (9) A 2004 NASA ground penetrating radar overflight 
        commissioned by Navy relocated the crash site three 
        miles from its crash position.
          (10) The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command offered to 
        underwrite the cost of an aerial ground penetrating 
        radar (GPR) survey of the crash site area by NASA.
          (11) The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command studied the 
        recovery with the recognized recovery authorities and 
        national scientists and determined that the recovery is 
        only ``medium risk''.
          (12) National Science Foundation and scientists from 
        the University of Texas, Austin, regularly visit the 
        island.
          (13) The crash site is classified as a ``perishable 
        site'', meaning a glacier that will calve into the 
        Bellingshausen Sea.
          (14) The National Science Foundation maintains a 
        presence in area--of the Pine Island Glacier.
          (15) The National Science Foundation Director of 
        Polar Operations will assist and provide assets for the 
        recovery upon the request of Congress.
          (16) The United States Coast Guard is presently 
        pursuing the recovery of 3 WWII air crewmen from 
        similar circumstances in Greenland.
          (17) On Memorial Day, May 25, 2009, President Barack 
        Obama declared: ``. . . the support of our veterans is 
        a sacred trust . . . we need to serve them as they have 
        served us . . . that means bringing home all our POWs 
        and MIAs. . .''.
          (18) The policies and laws of the United States of 
        America require that our armed service personnel be 
        repatriated.
          (19) The fullest possible accounting of United States 
        fallen military personnel means repatriating living 
        American POWs and MIAs, accounting for, identifying, 
        and recovering the remains of military personnel who 
        were killed in the line of duty, or providing 
        convincing evidence as to why such a repatriation, 
        accounting, identification, or recovery is not 
        possible.
          (20) It is the responsibility of the Federal 
        Government to return to the United States for proper 
        burial and respect all members of the Armed Forces 
        killed in the line of duty who lie in lost graves.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--In light of the findings under 
subsection (a), Congress--
          (1) reaffirms its support for the recovery and return 
        to the United States, the remains and bodies of all 
        members of the Armed Forces killed in the line of duty, 
        and for the efforts by the Joint POW-MIA Accounting 
        Command to recover the remains of members of the Armed 
        Forces from all wars, conflicts and missions;
          (2) recognizes the courage and sacrifice of all 
        members of the Armed Forces who participated in 
        Operation Highjump and all missions vital to the 
        national security of the United States of America;
          (3) acknowledges the dedicated research and efforts 
        by the US Geological Survey, the National Science 
        Foundation, the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, the 
        Fallen American Veterans Foundation and all persons and 
        organizations to identify, locate, and advocate for, 
        from their temporary Antarctic grave, the recovery of 
        the well-preserved frozen bodies of Ensign Maxwell 
        Lopez, Naval Aviator, Frederick Williams, Aviation 
        Machinist's Mate 1ST Class, Wendell Hendersin, Aviation 
        Radioman 1ST Class of the ``George 1'' explosion and 
        crash; and
          (4) encourages the Department of Defense to review 
        the facts, research and to pursue new efforts to 
        undertake all feasible efforts to recover, identify, 
        and return the well-preserved frozen bodies of the 
        ``George 1'' crew from Antarctica's Thurston Island.

SEC. 726. INTEGRATED ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORD OF THE DEPARTMENTS OF 
                    DEFENSE AND VETERANS AFFAIRS.

  (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) despite repeated attempts at cooperation over the 
        past 20 years, the Department of Defense and the 
        Department of Veterans Affairs have failed to implement 
        a solution that allows for seamless electronic sharing 
        of medical health care data;
          (2) the recent decision by the Secretary of Defense 
        and the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to abandon their 
        earlier agreement and pursue separate paths to 
        integration jeopardizes the stated goal of providing 
        ``a patient-centered health care system that delivers 
        excellent quality, access, satisfaction, and value, 
        consistently across the Departments'';
          (3) despite the repeated concerns and objections of 
        the congressional committees of jurisdiction, the 
        Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans 
        Affairs seem to be on a continued path to fail in 
        achieving the goal of creating a seamless health record 
        that integrates data across the Departments; and
          (4) the President should make the necessary 
        leadership changes to assure timely completion of this 
        requirement.
  (b) Implementation.--The Secretary of Defense and the 
Secretary of Veterans Affairs shall--
          (1) implement an integrated electronic health record 
        to be used by each of the Secretaries; and
          (2) deploy such record by not later than October 1, 
        2016.
  (c) Design Principles.--The integrated electronic health 
record established under subsection (b) shall adhere to the 
following principles:
          (1) To the extent practicable, efforts to establish

        and milestones established by the Joint Executive 
        Committee Joint Strategic Plan Fiscal Years 2013-2015, 
        including any requirements, definition, documents, or 
        analyses previously developed to satisfy said Joint 
        Strategic Plan.
          (2) Principles with respect to open architecture 
        standards, including--
                  (A) modular designs based on standards with 
                loose coupling and high cohesion that allow for 
                independent acquisition of system components;
                  (B) if existing national standards do not 
                exist as of the date on which the record is 
                being established, the Secretaries shall agree 
                upon and adopt a standard for purposes of the 
                record until such time as national standards 
                are established;
                  (C) enterprise investment strategies that 
                maximize reuse of proven system designs;
                  (D) implementation of aggressive life-cycle 
                sustainment planning that uses proven 
                technology insertion strategies and product 
                upgrade techniques;
                  (E) enforcement of system design 
                transparency, continuous design disclosure and 
                improvement, and peer reviews that include 
                government, academia, and industry; and
                  (F) strategies for data-use rights to ensure 
                a level competitive playing field and access to 
                alternative solutions and sources across the 
                life-cycle of the program.
          (3) By the point of full deployment decision, such 
        record must be at a generation 3 level or better for a 
        health information technology system.
  (d) Program Plan.--Not later than January 31, 2014, the 
Secretaries shall jointly develop and submit to the appropriate 
congressional committees a program plan for the oversight and

        2017.

               or His Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

  Page 463, after line 6, insert the following:

SEC. 1090. SENSE OF CONGRESS TO MAINTAIN A STRONG NATIONAL GUARD AND 
                    MILITARY RESERVE FORCE.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) The first volunteer militia unit in America was 
        formed in 1636 in Massachusetts Bay, followed by other 
        units in the colonies of Virginia and Connecticut. the 
        American founding fathers wrote article I, section 8, 
        of the United States Constitution to keep the militia 
        model, authorizing a standing military force that could 
        organize, train, and equip militia volunteers when 
        needed.
          (2) In World War I, nearly all National Guardsmen 
        were mobilized into Federal service, and while they 
        represented only 15 percent of the total United States 
        Army, they comprised 40 percent of the American 
        divisions sent to France and sustained 43 percent of 
        the casualties in combat. In World War II, the National 
        Guard comprised 19 Army divisions and 29 observation 
        squadrons with aircraft assigned to the United States 
        Army Air Forces.
          (3) On September 11, 2001, the first fighter jets 
        over New York City and Washington, DC, were Air 
        National Guard F-15 and F-16 aircraft from 
        Massachusetts and North Dakota, with over 400 more Air 
        National Guard fighter aircraft on alert by that 
        afternoon. Over 600,000 Air and Army National Guard 
        soldiers and airmen have deployed in the many campaigns 
        since 9/11.
          (4) Air and Army National Guard soldiers and airmen 
        have been involved in countless domestic response 
        missions, including missions in response to hurricanes, 
        tornadoes, floods, and forest fires including the more 
        recent events of Superstorm Sandy and the tornados in 
        Oklahoma.
          (5) The volunteer National Guard and Reserve have 
        time and again demonstrated their readiness to meet 
        operational requirements through cost-effective means.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) the Secretary of Defense should make every effort 
        to ensure the Military Reserve and National Guard 
        forces are sustained by a fully manned and fully funded 
        force and that the United States fulfill its 
        longstanding commitment to unyielding readiness in 
        terms of defense;
          (2) the Secretary of Defense should act with the 
        knowledge that the National Guard and Reserve are 
        critical components to the Armed Forces, particularly 
        as means of preserving combat power during a time of 
        budget austerity; and
          (3) Congress repudiates proposals to diminish the

SEC. 1219. SENSE OF CONGRESS.

  (b) Purpose.--Expressing the Sense of the House or 
Representatives that the Special Immigration Visa programs 
authorized in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
Year 2008 and the Afghan Allies Protection Act of 2009 are 
critical to the U.S. national security, and that these programs 
must be reformed and extended in order to meet the 
Congressional intent with which they were created.
  (b) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) Congress created the Special Immigration Visa 
        program for the purposes of protecting and aiding the 
        many brave Iraqis and Afghans whose lives, and the 
        lives of their families, were endangered as a result of 
        their faithful and valuable service to the United 
        States during Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi 
        Freedom.
          (2) The Iraq Special Immigrant Visa program is set to 
        expire at the end of fiscal year 2013.
          (3) The Afghanistan Special Immigrant Visa program is 
        set to expire at the end of fiscal year 2014.
          (4) Despite the pending expiration of the Special 
        Immigrant Visa programs, many brave Iraqis, Afghans, 
        and their families, continue to face ongoing and 
        serious threats as a result of their employment by or 
        on behalf of the U.S. Government.
          (5) Between FY08-FY12, only 22 percent of the 
        available Iraqi SIVs (5,500 visas out of 25,000 visas) 
        have been issued and 12 percent of the available Afghan 
        SIVs (1,051 visas out of 8,500 visas) have been issued.
          (6) As the Washington Post reported in October 2012, 
        over 5,000 documentarily complete Afghan SIV 
        applications remained in a backlog.
          (7) The implementation of the Special Immigration 
        Visa programs has been protracted and inefficient.
          (8) The application and approval process for the 
        Special Immigration Visa program is unnecessarily 
        opaque and difficult to navigate.
          (9) Applicants in both Iraq and Afghanistan often 
        have effusive recommendations from numerous military 
        personnel, have served the U.S. war efforts for many 
        years, and have served valiantly, in some instances 
        literally taking a bullet for a U.S. service member, 
        and yet are denied approval for a Special Immigration 
        Visa with little to no transparency.
          (10) Overly narrow provisions contained in the Afghan 
        Allies Protection Act of 2009 leave many deserving 
        Afghans and their families in need of U.S. assistance, 
        but unable to access the Special Immigration Visa 
        program.
          (11) The United States has a responsibility to follow 
        through on its promise to protect those Iraqis and 
        Afghans who have risked their lives to aid our troops 
        and protect America's security.
          (12) The extension and reform of the Iraq and 
        Afghanistan Special Immigrant Visa programs is a matter 
        of national security.
          (13) The extension and reform of the Afghan Special 
        Immigrant Visa program is essential to the U.S. mission 
        in Afghanistan.
  (c) Sense of the House.--It is the sense of the House of 
Representatives that the Iraq and Afghanistan Special Immigrant 
Visa programs should be--
          (1) reformed by--
                  (A) ensuring applications are processed in a 
                timely, and transparent fashion;
                  (B) providing parity between the two Special 
                Immigrant Visa programs so that Afghan 
                principal applicants, like Iraqi principal 
                applicants, are able to include their spouse, 
                children, siblings, and parents; and
                  (C) expanding eligibility for the Special 
                Immigrant Visa programs to Afghan or Iraqi men 
                and women employed by, or on behalf of, a media 
                or nongovernmental organization headquartered 
                in the United States, or an organization or 
                entity closely associated with the United 
                States mission in Iraq or Afghanistan that has 
                received U.S. Government funding through an 
                official and documented contract, award, grant, 
                or cooperative agreement; and
          (2) extended in--
                  (A) Iraq through the year 2018, without 
                authorizing any additional Special Immigrant 
                Visas as authorized in the original statue; and
                  (B) Afghanistan through the year 2018, 
                without authorizing any additional Special 
                Immigrant Visas as authorized in the original 
                statue.

  127. An Amendment To Be Offered by Representative Grimm (NY) or His 
                   Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

following new section:

SEC. 12_. STATEMENT OF POLICY ON CONDEMNING THE GOVERNMENT OF IRAN FOR 
                    ITS STATE-SPONSORED PERSECUTION OF ITS BAHA'I 
                    MINORITY.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) In 1982, 1984, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1994, 1996, 
        2000, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2012, and 2013, Congress 
        declared that it deplored the religious persecution by 
        the Government of Iran of the Baha'i community and 
        would hold the Government of Iran responsible for 
        upholding the rights of all Iranian nationals, 
        including members of the Baha'i faith.
          (2) The United States Commission on International 
        Religious Freedom 2012 Report stated, ``The Baha'i 
        community has long been subject to particularly severe 
        religious freedom violations in Iran. Baha'is, who 
        number at least 300,000, are viewed as `heretics' by 
        Iranian authorities and may face repression on the 
        grounds of apostasy.''.
          (3) The United States Commission on International 
        Religious Freedom 2012 Report stated, ``Since 1979, 
        Iranian government authorities have killed more than 
        200 Baha'i leaders in Iran and dismissed more than 
        10,000 from government and university jobs.''.
          (4) The United States Commission on International 
        Religious Freedom 2012 Report stated, ``Baha'is may not 
        establish places of worship, schools, or any 
        independent religious associations in Iran.''.
          (5) The United States Commission on International 
        Religious Freedom 2012 Report stated, ``Baha'is are 
        barred from the military and denied government jobs and 
        pensions as well as the right to inherit property. 
        Their marriages and divorces also are not recognized, 
        and they have difficulty obtaining death certificates. 
        Baha'i cemeteries, holy places, and community 
        properties are often seized or desecrated, and many 
        important religious sites have been destroyed.''.
          (6) The United States Commission on International 
        Religious Freedom 2012 Report stated, ``The Baha'i 
        community faces severe economic pressure, including 
        denials of jobs in both the public and private sectors 
        and of business licenses. Iranian authorities often 
        pressure employers of Baha'is to dismiss them from 
        employment in the private sector.''.
          (7) The Department of State 2011 International 
        Religious Freedom Report stated, ``The government 
        prohibits Baha'is from teaching and practicing their 
        faith and subjects them to many forms of discrimination 
        that followers of other religions do not face.''.
          (8) The Department of State 2011 International 
        Religious Freedom Report stated, ``According to law, 
        Baha'i blood is considered `mobah', meaning it can be 
        spilled with impunity.''.
          (9) The Department of State 2011 International 
        Religious Freedom Report stated that ``members of 
        religious minorities, with the exception of Baha'is, 
        can serve in lower ranks of government employment'', 
        and ``Baha'is are barred from all leadership positions 
        in the government and military''.
          (10) The Department of State 2011 International 
        Religious Freedom Report stated, ``Baha'is suffered 
        frequent government harassment and persecution, and 
        their property rights generally were disregarded. The 
        government raided Baha'i homes and businesses and 
        confiscated large amounts of private and commercial 
        property, as well as religious materials belonging to 
        Baha'is.''.
          (11) The Department of State 2011 International 
        Religious Freedom Report stated, ``Baha'is also are 
        required to register with the police''.
          (12) The Department of State 2011 International 
        Religious Freedom Report stated that ``[p]ublic and 
        private universities continued to deny admittance to 
        and expelled Baha'i students'' and ``[d]uring the year, 
        at least 30 Baha'is were barred or expelled from 
        universities on political or religious grounds''.
          (13) The Department of State 2011 International 
        Religious Freedom Report stated, ``Baha'is are 
        regularly denied compensation for injury or criminal 
        victimization.''.
          (14) On March 6, 2012, the United Nations Special 
        Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the 
        Islamic Republic of Iran issued a report (A/HRC/19/66), 
        which stated that ``the Special Rapporteur continues to 
        be alarmed by communications that demonstrate the 
        systemic and systematic persecution of members of 
        unrecognized religious communities, particularly the 
        Baha'i community, in violation of international 
        conventions'' and expressed concern regarding ``an 
        intensive defamation campaign meant to incite 
        discrimination and hate against Baha'is''.
          (15) On May 23, 2012, the United Nations Secretary-
        General issued a report, which stated that ``the 
        Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief . . 
        . pointed out that the Islamic Republic of Iran had a 
        policy of systematic persecution of persons belonging 
        to the Baha'i faith, excluding them from the 
        application of freedom of religion or belief by simply 
        denying that their faith had the status of a 
        religion''.
          (16) On August 22, 2012, the United Nations 
        Secretary-General issued a report, which stated, ``The 
        international community continues to express concerns 
        about the very serious discrimination against ethnic 
        and religious minorities in law and in practice, in 
        particular the Baha'i community. The Special Rapporteur 
        on the situation of human rights in the Islamic 
        Republic of Iran expressed alarm about the systemic and 
        systematic persecution of members of the Baha'i 
        community, including severe socioeconomic pressure and 
        arrests and detention. He also deplored the 
        Government's tolerance of an intensive defamation 
        campaign aimed at inciting discrimination and hate 
        against Baha'is.''.
          (17) On September 13, 2012, the United Nations 
        Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in 
        the Islamic Republic of Iran issued a report (A/67/
        369), which stated, ``Reports and interviews submitted 
        to the Special Rapporteur also continue to portray a 
        disturbing trend with regard to religious freedom in 
        the country. Members of both recognized and 
        unrecognized religions have reported various levels of 
        intimidation, arrest, detention and interrogation that 
        focus on their religious beliefs.'', and stated, ``At 
        the time of drafting the report, 105 members of the 
        Baha'i community were reported to be in detention.''.
          (18) On November 27, 2012, the Third Committee of the 
        United Nations General Assembly adopted a draft 
        resolution (A/C.3/67/L.51), which noted, ``[I]ncreased 
        persecution and human rights violations against persons 
        belonging to unrecognized religious minorities, 
        particularly members of the Baha'i faith and their 
        defenders, including escalating attacks, an increase in 
        the number of arrests and detentions, the restriction 
        of access to higher education on the basis of religion, 
        the sentencing of twelve Baha'is associated with Baha'i 
        educational institutions to lengthy prison terms, the 
        continued denial of access to employment in the public 
        sector, additional restrictions on participation in the 
        private sector, and the de facto criminalization of 
        membership in the Baha'i faith.''.
          (19) On December 20, 2012, the United Nations General 
        Assembly adopted a resolution (A/RES/67/182), which 
        called upon the government of Iran ``[t]o eliminate 
        discrimination against, and exclusion of . . . members 
        of the Baha'i Faith, regarding access to higher 
        education, and to eliminate the criminalization of 
        efforts to provide higher education to Baha'i youth 
        denied access to Iranian universities,'' and ``to 
        accord all Baha'is, including those imprisoned because 
        of their beliefs, the due process of law and the rights 
        that they are constitutionally guaranteed''.
          (20) On February 28, 2013, the United Nations Special 
        Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the 
        Islamic Republic of Iran issued a report (A/HRC/22/56), 
        which stated, ``110 Bahai's are currently detained in 
        Iran for exercising their faith, including two women, 
        Mrs. Zohreh Nikayin and Mrs. Taraneh Torabi, who are 
        reportedly nursing infants in prison''.
          (21) In March and May of 2008, intelligence officials 
        of the Government of Iran in Mashhad and Tehran 
        arrested and imprisoned Mrs. Fariba Kamalabadi, Mr. 
        Jamaloddin Khanjani, Mr. Afif Naeimi, Mr. Saeid Rezaie, 
        Mr. Behrouz Tavakkoli, Mrs. Mahvash Sabet, and Mr. 
        Vahid Tizfahm, the seven members of the ad hoc 
        leadership group for the Baha'i community in Iran.
          (22) In August 2010, the Revolutionary Court in 
        Tehran sentenced the seven Baha'i leaders to 20-year 
        prison terms on charges of ``spying for Israel, 
        insulting religious sanctities, propaganda against the 
        regime and spreading corruption on earth''.
          (23) The lawyer for these seven leaders, Mrs. Shirin 
        Ebadi, the Nobel Laureate, was denied meaningful or 
        timely access to the prisoners and their files, and her 
        successors as defense counsel were provided extremely 
        limited access.
          (24) These seven Baha'i leaders were targeted solely 
        on the basis of their religion.
          (25) Beginning in May 2011, Government of Iran 
        officials in four cities conducted sweeping raids on 
        the homes of dozens of individuals associated with the 
        Baha'i Institute for Higher Education (BIHE) and 
        arrested and detained several educators associated with 
        BIHE.
          (26) In October 2011, the Revolutionary Court in 
        Tehran sentenced seven of these BIHE instructors and 
        administrators, Mr. Vahid Mahmoudi, Mr. Kamran 
        Mortezaie, Mr. Mahmoud Badavam, Ms. Nooshin Khadem, Mr. 
        Farhad Sedghi, Mr. Riaz Sobhani, and Mr. Ramin Zibaie, 
        to prison terms for the crime of ``membership of the 
        deviant sect of Baha'ism, with the goal of taking 
        action against the security of the country, in order to 
        further the aims of the deviant sect and those of 
        organizations outside the country''.
          (27) Six of these educators remain imprisoned, with 
        Mr. Mortezaie serving a 5-year prison term and Mr. 
        Badavam, Ms. Khadem, Mr. Sedghi, Mr. Sobhani, and Mr. 
        Zibaie serving 4-year prison terms.
          (28) Since October 2011, four other BIHE educators, 
        Ms. Faran Hessami, Mr. Kamran Rahimian, Mr. Kayvan 
        Rahimian, and Mr. Shahin Negari have been sentenced to 
        4-year prison terms, which they are now serving.
          (29) The efforts of the Government of Iran to collect 
        information on individual Baha'is have recently 
        intensified as evidenced by a letter, dated November 5, 
        2011, from the Director of the Department of Education 
        in the county of Shahriar in the province of Tehran, 
        instructing the directors of schools in his 
        jurisdiction to ``subtly and in a confidential manner'' 
        collect information on Baha'i students.
          (30) The Baha'i community continues to undergo 
        intense economic and social pressure, including an 
        ongoing campaign in the town of Semnan, where the 
        Government of Iran has harassed and detained Baha'is, 
        closed 17 Baha'i owned businesses in the last three 
        years, and imprisoned several members of the community, 
        including three mothers along with their infants.
          (31) Ordinary Iranian citizens who belong to the 
        Baha'i faith are disproportionately targeted, 
        interrogated, and detained under the pretext of 
        national security.
          (32) The Government of Iran is party to the 
        International Covenants on Human Rights and is in 
        violation of its obligations under the Covenants.
  (b) Statement of Policy.--Congress--
          (1) condemns the Government of Iran for its state-
        sponsored persecution of its Baha'i minority and its 
        continued violation of the International Covenants on 
        Human Rights;
          (2) calls on the Government of Iran to immediately 
        release the seven imprisoned leaders, the ten 
        imprisoned educators, and all other prisoners held 
        solely on account of their religion; and
          (3) calls on the President and Secretary of State, in 
        cooperation with responsible nations, to immediately 
        condemn the Government of Iran's continued violation of 
        human rights and demand the immediate release of 
        prisoners held solely on account of their religion.

 130. An Amendment To Be Offered by Representative Turner (OH) or His 
                   Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

  Amend section 1244 to read as follows:

SEC. 1244. STATEMENT OF CONGRESS ON DEFENSE COOPERATION WITH GEORGIA.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) The Republic of Georgia is a highly valued ally 
        of the United States and has repeatedly demonstrated 
        its commitment to advancing the mutual interests of 
        both countries, including the deployment of Georgian 
        forces as part of the NATO-led International Security 
        Assistance Force in Afghanistan and the Multi-National 
        Force in Iraq.
          (2) The peaceful transfer of power as the result of 
        the free and fair parliamentary elections in Georgia in 
        October 2012 represents a major accomplishment toward 
        the Georgian people's creation of a free society and 
        full democracy.
          (3) However, since the October 2012 parliamentary 
        elections the new Georgian Government has taken a 
        series of measures against former officials and members 
        of the current political opposition that appear to be 
        motivated by political considerations.
          (4) Over 100 former Georgian Government officials 
        have been charged with criminal violations since the 
        October 2012 parliamentary elections.
          (5) Similar charges have been filed against members 
        of the political opposition, including Vano 
        Merabishvili, the Secretary General of the United 
        National Movement.
          (6) The arrest of the leader of an opposition party 
        is especially troubling, particularly its chilling 
        effect on political freedom prior to the presidential 
        election scheduled for October 2013.
          (7) The Georgian Government has taken insufficient 
        action to prevent further violence against members of 
        the United National Movement and to punish offenders.
          (8) These actions call into question the Georgian 
        Government's continued progress toward the creation of 
        a free and democratic society in which basic freedoms, 
        including freedom for political opposition, are 
        guaranteed.
  (b) Statement of Congress.--Congress declares that--
          (1) the United States remains committed to assisting 
        the people of Georgia in establishing a free and 
        democratic society in their country;
          (2) the measures taken by the Georgian Government 
        against former officials and political opponents, 
        apparently in part motivated by political 
        considerations, may have a significant negative impact 
        on cooperation between the United States and Georgia, 
        including efforts to build a stronger relationship in 
        political, economic, and security matters, as well as 
        progress on integrating Georgia into international 
        organizations;
          (3) the United States must be unambiguous when 
        democratic backsliding occurs in a key ally after a 
        peaceful and democratic transfer of power between 
        political parties; and
          (4) the people of the United States and the Members 
        of Congress express their deepest condolences to the 
        Georgian people on the tragic loss of seven soldiers of 
        Georgia in a suicide bombing on June 6, 2013, and the 
        deaths of three soldiers killed in another suicide 
        bombing on May 13, 2013, while they were supporting 
        United States and NATO forces in Afghanistan.

        the influx of weapons and fighters from Hezbollah, and

                   Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

  At the end of subtitle E of title XII of division A, add the 
following new section:

SEC. 12_. WAR POWERS OF CONGRESS.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) In 1793, George Washington said, ``The 
        constitution vests the power of declaring war in 
        Congress; therefore no offensive expedition of 
        importance can be undertaken until after they shall 
        have deliberated upon the subject and authorized such a 
        measure.''.
          (2) In a letter to Thomas Jefferson in 1798, James 
        Madison wrote: ``The constitution supposes, what the 
        History of all Governments demonstrates, that the 
        Executive is the branch of power most interested in 
        war, and most prone to it. It has accordingly with 
        studied care vested the question of war to the 
        Legislature.''
          (3) In 1973, Congress passed the War Powers 
        Resolution which states in section 2: ``The 
        constitutional powers of the President as Commander-in-
        Chief to introduce United States Armed Forces into 
        hostilities, or into situations where imminent 
        involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the 
        circumstances, are exercised only pursuant to (1) a 
        declaration of war, (2) specific statutory 
        authorization, or (3) national emergency created by 
        attack upon the United States, its territories or 
        possessions, or its armed forces.''.
          (4) In its April 1, 2011, Memorandum to President 
        Obama, the Office of Legal Counsel concluded: 
        ``President Obama could rely on his constitutional 
        power to safeguard the national interest by directing 
        the anticipated military operations in Libya--which 
        were limited in their nature, scope, and duration--
        without prior congressional authorization.''.
          (5) On June 15, 2011, in a letter to the Speaker of 
        the House of Representatives from the Department of 
        Defense and Department of State, the Departments 
        informed Congress that ``The President is of the view 
        that the current U.S. military operations in Libya are 
        consistent with the War Powers Resolution and do not 
        under that law require further congressional 
        authorization, because U.S. military operations are 
        distinct from the kind of `hostilities contemplated by 
        the Resolution's 60 day termination provision'.''.
          (6) The precedence set by the Executive Branch in its 
        assertion that Congress plays no role in military 
        actions like those taken in Libya is contrary to the 
        intent of the Framers and of the Constitution which 
        vests sole authority to declare war in the Legislative 
        Branch.
  (b) Rule of Construction.--Nothing in this Act shall be 
construed to authorize any use of military force.
                              ----------

  None of the funds authorized to be appropriated by this Act

the government of a country undergoing a transition to 
democracy in the Middle East or North Africa unless the 
Secretary of Defense certifies to the Committee on Armed

government are not using excessive force to repress peaceful, 
lawful, and organized dissent.

SEC. 12_. PROHIBITION ON USE OF DRONES TO KILL UNITED STATES CITIZENS.

  (a) Prohibition.--The Department of Defense may not use a 
drone to kill a citizen of the United States.

                    ISRAEL TO SELF-DEFENSE.

          (1) The United States-Israel Enhanced Security 
        Cooperation Act of 2012 (22 U.S.C. 8601 et seq.) 
        established the policy of the United States to support 
        the inherent right of Israel to self-defense.
          (2) The United States-Israel Enhanced Security 
        Cooperation Act of 2012 (22 U.S.C. 8601 et seq.) 
        expressed the sense of Congress that the Government of 
        the United States should transfer to the Government of 
        Israel defense articles and defense services such as 
        air refueling tankers, missile defense capabilities, 
        and specialized munitions.
          (3) The inherent right of Israel to self-defense 
        necessarily includes the possession and maintenance by 
        Israel of an independent capability to remove 
        existential threats to its security and defend its 
        vital national interests.
  (b) Policy of the United States.--It is the policy of the 
United States to take all necessary steps to ensure that Israel 
possesses and maintains an independent capability to remove 
existential threats to its security and defend its vital 
national interests.
  (c) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that air 
refueling tankers and advanced bunker-buster munitions should 
immediately be transferred to Israel to ensure our democratic 
ally has an independent capability to remove any existential 
threat posed by the Iranian nuclear program and defend its 
vital national interests.
  (d) Report.--Not later than 90 days after the date of the 
enactment of this Act, and every 90 days thereafter, the 
President shall submit to the House and Senate Armed Services 
committees, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, the Senate 
Foreign Relations Committee, and the House and Senate 
Appropriations committees a report that--
          (1) identifies all aerial refueling platforms, 
        bunker-buster munitions, and other capabilities and 
        platforms that would contribute significantly to the 
        maintenance by Israel of a robust independent 
        capability to remove existential security threats, 
        including nuclear and ballistic missile facilities in 
        Iran, and defend its vital national interests;
          (2) assesses the availability for sale or transfer of 
        items necessary to acquire the capabilities and 
        platforms described in paragraph (1) as well as the 
        legal authorities available for making such transfers; 
        and
          (3) describes the steps the President is taking to 
        immediately transfer the items described in paragraph

SEC. 1259. REPORT ON COLLECTIVE AND NATIONAL SECURITY IMPLICATIONS OF 
                    CENTRAL ASIAN AND SOUTH CAUCASUS ENERGY 
                    DEVELOPMENT.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) Assured access to stable energy supplies is an 
        enduring concern of both the United States and the 
        North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) .
          (2) Adopted in Lisbon in November 2010, the new NATO 
        Strategic Concept declares that ``[s]ome NATO countries 
        will become more dependent on foreign energy suppliers 
        and in some cases, on foreign energy supply and 
        distribution networks for their energy needs''.
          (3) The report required by section 1233 of the 
        National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 
        (Public Law 112-81) reaffirmed the Strategic Concept's 
        assessment of growing energy dependence of some members 
        of the NATO alliance and also noted there is value in 
        the assured access, protection, and delivery of energy.
          (4) Development of energy resources and transit 
        routes in the areas surrounding the Caspian Sea can 
        diversify sources of supply for members of the NATO 
        alliance, particularly those in Eastern Europe.
  (b) Report.--
          (1) Report.--Not later than 270 days after the date 
        of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense 
        shall, in consultation with the Secretary of State and 
        the Secretary of Energy, submit to the appropriate 
        congressional committees a detailed report on the 
        implications of new energy resource development and 
        distribution networks, both planned and under 
        construction, in the areas surrounding the Caspian Sea 
        for energy security strategies of the United States and 
        NATO.
          (2) Elements.--The report required by paragraph (1) 
        shall include the following:
                  (A) An assessment of the dependence of NATO 
                members on a single oil or natural gas supplier 
                or distribution network.
                  (B) An assessment of the potential of energy 
                resources of the areas surrounding the Caspian 
                Sea to mitigate such dependence on a single 
                supplier or distribution network.
                  (C) Recommendations, if any, for ways in 
                which the United States can help support 
                increased energy security for NATO members.
          (3) Submission of classified information.--The report 
        under this subsection shall be submitted in 
        unclassified form, but may contain a classified annex.
  (c) Appropriate Congressional Committees Defined.--In this 
section, the term ``appropriate congressional committees'' 
means--
          (1) the Committee on Armed Services and the Committee 
        on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives; and
          (2) the Committee on Armed Services and the Committee 
        on Foreign Relations of the Senate.

SEC. 12_. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON THE THREAT POSED BY HEZBOLLAH.

          (1) Hezbollah has been designated a foreign terrorist 
        organization by the Department of State since October 
        8, 1997.
          (2) Hezbollah has been responsible for numerous 
        terrorist attacks and attempted terrorist attacks 
        around the world, including attacks against United 
        States citizens.
          (3) Hezbollah is active in Europe and has been linked 
        to a July 18, 2012, suicide bombing in Bulgaria which 
        killed five people.
          (4) Hezbollah operatives have been captured around 
        the world attacking or attempting to attack Western and 
        Israeli targets.
          (5) The United States is working with its European 
        allies to combat terrorism through a variety of means, 
        including through NATO's Partnership Action Plan 
        against Terrorism and the Defence Against Terrorism 
        Programme of Work.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) the United States should continue to use all 
        necessary means to fight against terrorism, including 
        Hezbollah;
          (2) President Obama should strongly encourage his 
        European counterparts to publicly condemn Hezbollah;
          (3) European allies should seek to officially 
        recognize Hezbollah as a terrorist organization;
          (4) any attempt to distinguish between military and 
        civilian wings in Hezbollah is meaningless; and
          (5) all countries should work together to fight 
        radical terrorist organizations like Hezbollah.

          (4) The people of Israel have established a vibrant, 
        pluralistic, democratic political system, including 
        freedom of speech, association, and religion; a 
        vigorously free press; free, fair, and open elections; 
        the rule of law; a fully independent judiciary; and 
        other democratic principles and practices.
          (5) Since the 1979 revolution in Iran, the leaders of 
        the Islamic Republic of Iran have repeatedly made 
        threats against the existence of the State of Israel 
        and sponsored acts of terrorism and violence against 
        its citizens.
          (6) On October 27, 2005, President of Iran Mahmoud 
        Ahmadinejad called for a world without America and 
        Zionism.
          (7) In February 2012, Supreme Leader of Iran Ali 
        Khamenei said of Israel, ``The Zionist regime is a true 
        cancer tumor on this region that should be cut off. And 
        it definitely will be cut off.''.
          (8) In August 2012, Supreme Leader Khamenei said of 
        Israel, ``This bogus and fake Zionist outgrowth will 
        disappear off the landscape of geography.''.
          (9) In August 2012, President Ahmadinejad said that 
        ``in the new Middle East . . . there will be no trace 
        of the American presence and the Zionists'';
          (10) The Department of State has designated the 
        Islamic Republic of Iran as a state sponsor of 
        terrorism since 1984 and has characterized the Islamic 
        Republic of Iran as the ``most active state sponsor of 
        terrorism'' in the world.
          (11) The Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran 
        has provided weapons, training, funding, and direction 
        to terrorist groups, including Hamas, Hizballah, and 
        Shiite militias in Iraq that are responsible for the 
        murder of hundreds of United States service members and 
        innocent civilians.
          (12) The Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran 
        has provided weapons, training, and funding to the 
        regime of Bashar al Assad that has been used to 
        suppress and murder its own people.
          (13) Since at least the late 1980s, the Government of 
        the Islamic Republic of Iran has engaged in a sustained 
        and well-documented pattern of illicit and deceptive 
        activities to acquire a nuclear weapons capability.
          (14) Since September 2005, the Board of Governors of 
        the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has found 
        the Islamic Republic of Iran to be in non-compliance 
        with its safeguards agreement with the IAEA, which Iran 
        is obligated to undertake as a non-nuclear-weapon State 
        Party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear 
        Weapons, done at Washington, London, and Moscow July 1, 
        1968, and entered into force March 5, 1970 (NPT).
          (15) The United Nations Security Council has adopted 
        multiple resolutions since 2006 demanding of the 
        Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran its full and 
        sustained suspension of all uranium enrichment-related 
        and reprocessing activities and its full cooperation 
        with the IAEA on all outstanding issues related to its 
        nuclear activities, particularly those concerning the 
        possible military dimensions of its nuclear program.
          (16) The Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran 
        has refused to comply with United Nations Security 
        Council resolutions or to fully cooperate with the 
        IAEA.
          (17) In November 2011, the IAEA Director General 
        issued a report that documented ``serious concerns 
        regarding possible military dimensions to Iran's 
        nuclear programme'', and affirmed that information 
        available to the IAEA indicates that ``Iran has carried 
        out activities relevant to the development of a nuclear 
        explosive device'' and that some activities may be 
        ongoing.
          (18) The Government of Iran stands in violation of 
        the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for denying 
        its citizens basic freedoms, including the freedoms of 
        expression, religion, peaceful assembly and movement, 
        and for flagrantly abusing the rights of minorities and 
        women.
          (19) In his State of the Union Address on January 24, 
        2012, President Barack Obama stated, ``Let there be no 
        doubt: America is determined to prevent Iran from 
        getting a nuclear weapon, and I will take no options 
        off the table to achieve that goal.''.
          (20) Congress has passed and the President has signed 
        into law legislation imposing significant economic and 
        diplomatic sanctions on Iran to encourage the 
        Government of Iran to abandon its pursuit of nuclear 
        weapons and end its support for terrorism.
          (21) These sanctions, while having significant 
        effect, have yet to persuade Iran to abandon its 
        illicit pursuits and comply with United Nations 
        Security Council resolutions.
          (22) More stringent enforcement of sanctions 
        legislation, including elements targeting oil exports 
        and access to foreign exchange, could still lead the 
        Government of Iran to change course.
          (23) In his State of the Union Address on February 
        12, 2013, President Obama reiterated, ``The leaders of 
        Iran must recognize that now is the time for a 
        diplomatic solution, because a coalition stands united 
        in demanding that they meet their obligations. And we 
        will do what is necessary to prevent them from getting 
        a nuclear weapon.''.
          (24) On March 4, 2012, President Obama stated, 
        ``Iran's leaders should understand that I do not have a 
        policy of containment; I have a policy to prevent Iran 
        from obtaining a nuclear weapon.''.
          (25) On October 22, 2012, President Obama said of 
        Iran, ``The clock is ticking . . . And we're going to 
        make sure that if they do not meet the demands of the 
        international community, then we are going to take all 
        options necessary to make sure they don't have a 
        nuclear weapon.''.
          (26) On May 19, 2011, President Obama stated, ``Every 
        state has the right to self-defense, and Israel must be 
        able to defend itself, by itself, against any 
        threat.''.
          (27) On September 21, 2011, President Obama stated, 
        ``America's commitment to Israel's security is 
        unshakeable. Our friendship with Israel is deep and 
        enduring.''.
          (28) On March 4, 2012, President Obama stated, ``And 
        whenever an effort is made to delegitimize the state of 
        Israel, my administration has opposed them. So there 
        should not be a shred of doubt by now: when the chips 
        are down, I have Israel's back.''.
          (29) On October 22, 2012, President Obama stated, 
        ``Israel is a true friend. And if Israel is attacked, 
        America will stand with Israel. I've made that clear 
        throughout my presidency . . . I will stand with Israel 
        if they are attacked.''.
          (30) In December 2012, 74 United States Senators 
        wrote to President Obama ``As you begin your second 
        term as President, we ask you to reiterate your 
        readiness to take military action against Iran if it 
        continues its efforts to acquire a nuclear weapon. In 
        addition, we urge you to work with our European and 
        Middle Eastern allies to demonstrate to the Iranians 
        that a credible and capable multilateral coalition 
        exists that would support a military strike if, in the 
        end, this is unfortunately necessary.''.
          (31) The United States-Israel Enhanced Security 
        Cooperation Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-150) stated 
        that it is United States policy to support Israel's 
        inherent right to self-defense.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--Congress--
          (1) reaffirms the special bonds of friendship and 
        cooperation that have existed between the United States 
        and the State of Israel for more than sixty years and 
        that enjoy overwhelming bipartisan support in Congress 
        and among the people of the United States;
          (2) strongly supports the close military, 
        intelligence, and security cooperation that President 
        Obama has pursued with Israel and urges this 
        cooperation to continue and deepen;
          (3) deplores and condemns, in the strongest possible 
        terms, the reprehensible statements and policies of the 
        leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran threatening the 
        security and existence of Israel;
          (4) recognizes the tremendous threat posed to the 
        United States, the West, and Israel by the Government 
        of Iran's continuing pursuit of a nuclear weapons 
        capability;
          (5) reiterates that the policy of the United States 
        is to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon 
        capability and to take such action as may be necessary 
        to implement this policy;
          (6) reaffirms its strong support for the full 
        implementation of United States and international 
        sanctions on Iran and urges the President to continue 
        and strengthen enforcement of sanctions legislation;
          (7) declares that the United States has a vital 
        national interest in, and unbreakable commitment to, 
        ensuring the existence, survival, and security of the 
        State of Israel, and reaffirms United States support 
        for Israel's right to self-defense; and
          (8) urges that, if the Government of Israel is 
        compelled to take military action in legitimate self-
        defense against Iran's nuclear weapons program, the 
        United States Government should stand with Israel and 
        provide, in accordance with United States law and the 
        constitutional responsibility of Congress to authorize 
        the use of military force, diplomatic, military, and 
        economic support to the Government of Israel in its 
        defense of its territory, people, and existence.
  (c) Rule of Construction.--Nothing in this section shall be 
construed as an authorization for the use of force or a 
declaration of war.
                              ----------

        purposes of determining whether or not a prime 
        contractor has attained the percentage goals specified 
        in paragraph (6)--
                  ``(A) if the subcontracting goals pertain

                agency, the prime contractor shall receive 
                credit for small business concerns performing 
                as first tier subcontractors or subcontractors 
                at any tier pursuant to the subcontracting 
                plans required under paragraph (6)(D) in an

SEC. 1607. PROGRAM TO PROVIDE FEDERAL CONTRACTS TO EARLY STAGE SMALL 
                    BUSINESSES.

  (a) In General.--The Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 631 et 
seq.) is amended by adding at the end the following:

``SEC. 48. PROGRAM TO PROVIDE FEDERAL CONTRACTS TO EARLY STAGE SMALL 
                    BUSINESSES.

  ``(a) Establishment.--The Administrator shall establish and

        Federal agencies for award under the program.

        pursuant to this section, the award of a procurement 
        contract of a Federal agency identified by the 
        Administrator pursuant to paragraph (1) shall be made 
        by the agency to an eligible program participant 
        selected, and determined to be responsible, by the 
        agency.
          ``(3) Competition.--
                  ``(A) Sole source.--A contracting officer may 
                award a sole source contract under this program 
                if such concern is determined to be a 
                responsible contractor with respect to 
                performance of such contract opportunity and 
                the contracting officer does not have a

                stage small business concerns will submit 
                offers for the contracting opportunity and in 
                the estimation of the contracting officer, the 
                contract award can be made at a fair and

                officer may award contracts on the basis of 
                competition restricted to early stage small 
                business concerns if the contracting officer

                2 early stage small business concerns will 
                submit offers and that the award can be made at 
                a fair market price.
          ``(4) Contract value.--Contracts shall be awarded 
        under this program if its value is greater than $3,000

        15(j)(1) of the Small Business Act.
  ``(c) Eligibility.--Only an early stage small business 
concern shall be eligible to compete for a contract to be

State government, or a national certifying entity to certify 
that the business meets the eligibility criteria of an early 
stage small business concern.

  ``(f) Regulations.--The Administrator shall--
          ``(1) issue proposed regulations to carry out this

        security, redistribution, indemnity, and copyright in 
        the acquisition, use, release, and collaborative 
        development of proprietary, open source, and mixed 
        source software.
          (4) Guidance for the adoption of available commercial 
        practices to acquire proprietary, open source, and 
        mixed source software for widespread Government use, 
        including issues such as security and redistribution 
        rights.

  It is the sense of Congress that the President should 
establish an Advisory Board on Toxic Substances and Worker 
Health, as described in the report of the Comptroller General 
of the United States titled ``Energy Employees Compensation: 
Additional Independent Oversight and Transparency Would Improve 
Program's Credibility'', numbered GAO-10-302, to--

                   Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

  At the end of subtitle E of title XII of division A of the 
bill, add the following new section:

SEC. 12_. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON THE ILLEGAL NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAMS OF 
                    IRAN AND NORTH KOREA.

  It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) the paramount security concern of the United 
        States is the ongoing and illegal nuclear weapons 
        programs of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the 
        Democratic People's Republic of Korea;
          (2) it should be the primary objective of the 
        President of the United States to ensure that North 
        Korea's nuclear program is completely and verifiably 
        eliminated and that Iran, and its terrorist proxies, 
        are not allowed to develop nuclear weapons capability 
        and the means to deliver them;
          (3) the continuing failure to compel Iran and North 
        Korea to comply with their respective obligations under 
        international law risks greater nuclear proliferation 
        throughout already unstable regions by states that have 
        chosen, but not irreversibly so, to refrain from 
        developing or acquiring their own nuclear weapons 
        capability;
          (4) nuclear arms reductions by the United States and 
        the Russian Federation have not persuaded or otherwise 
        incentivized Iran and North Korea to halt or reverse 
        their destabilizing and dangerous nuclear weapons 
        programs, nor have they resulted in increased 
        cooperation by other states to deal with these threats; 
        and
          (5) the President should use all international fora 
        available to the President to pursue the complete and 
        verifiable elimination of the nuclear weapons programs 
        of Iran and North Korea as the President's paramount 
        obligation to the security of the American people.

section:

SEC. 15_. LIMITATION ON FUNDS FOR THE AFGHANISTAN SECURITY FORCES FUND 
                    TO ACQUIRE CERTAIN AIRCRAFT, VEHICLES, AND 
                    EQUIPMENT.

  (a) Limitation.--Of the funds authorized to be appropriated

submits to the Committee on Armed Services of the House of 
Representatives and the Committee on Armed Services of the 
Senate a report as described in subsection (b).
  (b) Report.--The report referred to in subsection (a) is a 
report that includes the following information:
          (1) A list of all covered aircraft, vehicles, and 
        equipment to be purchased with funds authorized to be

        fully capable of operating and maintaining such covered 
        aircraft, vehicles, and equipment without support from 
        United States personnel.
          (6) An explanation of the extent to which the 
        acquisition of such covered aircraft, vehicles, and 
        equipment will impact the longer-term United States 
        costs of supporting the ASFF.

 171. An Amendment To Be Offered by Representative Gingrey (GA) or His 
                   Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

  At the end of subtitle I of title X of division A, add the 
following:

SEC. 1090. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING PRESERVATION OF SECOND AMENDMENT 
                    RIGHTS OF ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY PERSONNEL STATIONED 
                    OR RESIDING IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) The Second Amendment to the United States 
        Constitution provides that the right of the people to 
        keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
          (2) Approximately 40,000 servicemen and women across 
        all branches of the Armed Forces either live in or are 
        stationed on active duty within the Washington, D.C., 
        metropolitan area. Unless these individuals are granted 
        a waiver as serving in a law enforcement role, they are 
        subject to the District of Columbia's onerous and 
        highly restrictive laws on the possession of firearms.
          (3) Military personnel, despite being extensively 
        trained in the proper and safe use of firearms, are 
        therefore deprived by the laws of the District of 
        Columbia of handguns, rifles, and shotguns that are 
        commonly kept by law-abiding persons throughout the 
        United States for sporting use and for lawful defense 
        of their persons, homes, businesses, and families.
          (4) The District of Columbia has one of the highest 
        per capita murder rates in the Nation, which may be 
        attributed in part to previous local laws prohibiting 
        possession of firearms by law-abiding persons who would 
        have otherwise been able to defend themselves and their 
        loved ones in their own homes and businesses.
          (5) The Gun Control Act of 1968 (as amended by the 
        Firearms Owners' Protection Act) and the Brady Handgun 
        Violence Prevention Act provide comprehensive Federal 
        regulations applicable in the District of Columbia as 
        elsewhere. In addition, existing District of Columbia 
        criminal laws punish possession and illegal use of 
        firearms by violent criminals and felons. Consequently, 
        there is no need for local laws that only affect and 
        disarm law-abiding citizens.
          (6) On June 26, 2008, the Supreme Court of the United 
        States in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller 
        held that the Second Amendment protects an individual's 
        right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful 
        purposes, and thus ruled that the District of 
        Columbia's handgun ban and requirements that rifles and 
        shotguns in the home be kept unloaded and disassembled 
        or outfitted with a trigger lock to be 
        unconstitutional.
          (7) On July 16, 2008, the District of Columbia 
        enacted the Firearms Control Emergency Amendment Act of 
        2008 (D.C. Act 17-422; 55 DCR 8237), which places 
        onerous restrictions on the ability of law-abiding 
        citizens from possessing firearms, thus violating the 
        spirit by which the Supreme Court of the United States 
        ruled in District of Columbia v. Heller.
          (8) On February 26, 2009, the United States Senate 
        adopted an amendment on a bipartisan vote of 62-36 by 
        Senator John Ensign to S. 160, the District of Columbia 
        House Voting Rights Act of 2009, which would fully 
        restore Second Amendment rights to the citizens of the 
        District of Columbia.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that 
active duty military personnel who are stationed or residing in 
the District of Columbia should be permitted to exercise fully 
their rights under the Second Amendment to the Constitution of 
the United States and therefore should be exempt from the 
District of Columbia's restrictions on the possession of 
firearms.
