                                OVERVIEW

    The Committee recommendation for fiscal year 2014 for 
activities under the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on State, 
Foreign Operations, and Related Programs is $34,103,000,000 in 
new discretionary budget authority, which is $7,990,000,000, or 
nineteen percent, below the fiscal year 2013 enacted level 
(defined as the amount provided within Public Law 113-6 and 
excluding emergency funding, the 251A sequester, and any other 
adjustments imposed by the Office of Management and Budget 
pursuant to section 3004 of Public Law 113-6) and 
$13,766,510,000, or twenty-nine percent, below the fiscal year 
2014 request. Amounts contained in this report that reflect the 
fiscal year 2013 enacted level do not include the effects of 
sequestration or any other adjustments imposed by the Office of 
Management and Budget.
    In addition, the recommendation includes $6,520,000,000 in 
title VIII to support Overseas Contingency Operations/Global 
War on Terrorism (OCO/GWOT), pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) 
of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 
1985. The Committee continues to ensure that these temporary 
and extraordinary costs are on a glide-path downward by 
reducing OCO/GWOT appropriations by forty-two percent below the 
fiscal year 2013 enacted level.
    The Committee notes that the total amount provided in the 
Committee recommendation, including funds designated as OCO/
GWOT, decreases by $12,673,100,000, or twenty-four percent, 
below the fiscal year 2013 enacted level and $11,053,851,000, 
or twenty-one percent, below the fiscal year 2014 request.
    The Committee recommendation reflects the challenges 
inherent in achieving deficit reduction by focusing on 
discretionary spending. Significantly reducing our Federal 
budget deficit and the national debt will also require 
mandatory savings to be achieved. The Committee, therefore, has 
made difficult funding trade-offs in order to protect the 
national security interests of the United States.
    The Committee recommendation yields savings by terminating 
or not providing funding for twenty-two accounts and reducing 
funds for many other programs. The Committee also continues to 
normalize budgeting for the activities previously funded under 
Assistance to Europe, Eurasia, and Central Asia and funds those 
programs under Economic Support Fund, Global Health Programs, 
and International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement, but 
notes that this budgeting shift that began in fiscal year 2013 
shall in no way diminish the focus on programs in the region, 
particularly democracy promotion activities to counter 
repressive governments.
    The Committee recommendation, as detailed in the bill and 
accompanying report, prioritizes the following: (1) security 
programs, including embassy security and international security 
assistance; (2) humanitarian and health programs; (3) programs 
that promote democratic principles and American values; and (4) 
oversight, transparency, and accountability measures.

Security Programs

    The Committee remains focused on supporting programs that 
are critical to the national security of the United States. 
First and foremost, the Committee has prioritized the security 
of our diplomatic and development staff and the facilities 
where they work. The Committee recommendation includes full 
funding of the $4,831,486,000 request for Embassy Security, 
Construction, and Maintenance and Worldwide Security 
Protection. The Committee provides direction under 
Administration of Foreign Affairs regarding reporting 
requirements that must be met for this security funding.
    The Committee continues to provide unwavering support for 
Israel's security, reflected by full funding for the United 
States-Israel Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at 
$3,100,000,000. The Committee recommendation also supports 
Jordan by providing the MOU funding level of $660,000,000 and 
by making additional funds available in title VIII of the Act 
for OCO/GWOT to help Jordan address the extraordinary strain it 
faces from unrest in the region.
    Additionally, to address concerns about instability in 
Latin America, the Committee recommendation supports the 
request for security assistance to key countries in the region. 
The Committee believes it is critical to continue robust 
support for counter-narcotics and law enforcement efforts, as 
well as assistance for rule of law and judicial reform 
activities in Mexico, Colombia, Central America, and the 
Caribbean in order to fight drug trafficking and violent crime 
before it reaches the borders of the United States. The 
security and stability of these neighbors directly affects the 
security of the United States.
    The Committee notes the continued importance of United 
States assistance to secure and stabilize the front-line states 
of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq. The Committee understands, 
however, that the staffing and programmatic requirements in 
these countries will remain under continuous review and 
therefore has not designated specific funding recommendations 
by country to allow the Administration time to refine its plans 
to reduce the size and scope of programs and staff in 
consultation with the Committee. For this reason, the Committee 
requires spend plans and advance notification before funds are 
obligated for these countries, pursuant to sections 7015 and 
7076 of this Act.
    The Committee is committed to applying the lessons learned 
from the transition in Iraq to the ongoing transition in 
Afghanistan and includes a new certification requirement to 
ensure that funds are spent wisely, necessary agreements with 
the host government are in place, and security concerns are 
addressed. The Committee is concerned about the oversight of 
development programs when United States military support is no 
longer available in Afghanistan to provide transportation and 
security to oversee programs. The Committee directs the 
Administrator of the United States Agency for International 
Development (USAID) to continue to keep the Committee updated 
on plans to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse and ensure 
sustainability of projects begun with United States assistance. 
The Committee also includes new language in section 7046 of 
this Act to ensure enforcement of the prohibition on illegal 
taxation of implementers of United States assistance and 
continues language supporting the rights of women and girls.
    The Committee notes that there are many areas of the world 
that are facing unrest, and if funds are re-directed toward 
unplanned or unrequested contingencies that emerge in countries 
where the United States has national security interests, the 
Committee requires notification 15 days in advance of any 
obligation of funds. The Committee notes that the advance 
notification requirement may only be waived if failure to do so 
would pose a substantial risk to human health and welfare. The 
Committee expects the use of this authority to be extremely 
rare and directs the Secretary of State to use this authority 
judiciously.

Humanitarian and Health Programs

    The Committee notes that foreign assistance is often 
essential to advance foreign policy and national security 
objectives and that such assistance also reflects the values, 
generosity, and goodwill of the people of the United States. 
The Committee believes that even during these very difficult 
economic times at home, the most vulnerable populations around 
the world, those who are affected by disease, hunger, and 
displacement due to conflict and natural disasters, cannot be 
overlooked. The Committee notes that these conditions can 
threaten and destabilize countries and governments, and could 
undermine our national security. For this reason, the Committee 
continues to provide robust funding levels for global health 
activities, as well as disaster and refugee assistance.

Programs that Promote Democratic Principles and American Values

    The Committee notes that during this time of unprecedented 
political change in many countries around the world, American 
leadership is critical and funding for democracy promotion is 
of the utmost importance. For this reason, the bill maintains 
the fiscal year 2013 enacted level for the National Endowment 
for Democracy, which is $14,314,000 above the request, and the 
estimated level requested for the Democracy Fund. The Committee 
recommendation also meets the request level for the 
Broadcasting Board of Governors, including Voice of America 
programming.
    The Committee is concerned about the harassment and 
persecution faced by civil society around the world, and 
expects the Department of State and USAID to support the role 
of civil society in democracy and governance strategies in 
order to accomplish the following: hold governments 
accountable; spur democratic change, including through, but not 
limited to, support for free and fair elections; and improve 
the effectiveness of government institutions. The Committee 
includes new requirements prohibiting direct government-to-
government assistance unless the Secretary of State can certify 
that the recipient government has demonstrated a commitment to 
democracy and is taking steps to protect the rights of civil 
society, including freedom of association and assembly.
    The Committee continues the prohibition on foreign 
governments approving democracy, human rights, and governance 
assistance and includes a new requirement that the Secretary of 
State submit a report on how the Department of State ensures 
compliance with the prohibition. The Committee further requires 
that the Secretary of State and the Administrator of USAID 
submit strategies to promote democracy in countries where 
governance programs are planned but that have governments that 
act in a manner contrary to the advancement of democracy.

Oversight, Transparency, and Accountability

    The Committee takes seriously its responsibility to conduct 
proper oversight, and during calendar year 2013, the 
Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs 
held ten hearings and member briefings in order to further 
examine the programs in the Subcommittee's jurisdiction to 
prioritize funding requests, remove redundant or inefficient 
programs, address vulnerabilities for fraud and corruption, and 
improve transparency of assistance programs. Additionally, the 
Surveys and Investigations (S&I;) staff of the Committee began 
five reviews, and S&I; continues to provide updates on studies 
that began in prior years. The Government Accountability Office 
also provides reports on matters in the Subcommittee's 
jurisdiction and began one study this year at the 
Subcommittee's direction.
    Proper management of taxpayer dollars must be a focus of 
all Government agencies, and this is particularly important for 
the Department of State, USAID, and other agencies charged with 
advancing the interests of the United States around the world. 
Waste, fraud, and abuse in the programs funded in this bill 
will not be tolerated. Reflecting its commitment to oversight, 
transparency, and accountability, the Committee has maintained 
and strengthened provisions contained in prior year 
appropriations Acts on multi-year commitments, direct 
government-to-government assistance, the United Nations (UN), 
and contributions to international financial institutions. The 
Committee adds a new provision requiring certain conditions to 
be met before competition is limited to local organizations.

            TITLE I--DEPARTMENT OF STATE AND RELATED AGENCY


                          DEPARTMENT OF STATE


                   Administration of Foreign Affairs

    The Committee recommendation for Administration of Foreign 
Affairs provides funds for the broad range of activities 
necessary to support the operations and activities of more than 
280 diplomatic locations in over 180 countries. The Committee 
recommends a total of $8,862,263,000 for these activities of 
the Department of State. Of the total amount provided, 
$8,703,363,000 is derived from general-purpose discretionary 
funds and $158,900,000 is mandatory spending.
    The Committee recommendation provides $4,831,486,000 to 
meet urgent security requirements, including those identified 
by the Benghazi Accountability Review Board and other 
Department of State reviews. The amount provided is the same as 
the budget request and will build upon the enhanced embassy 
security funding made available in the Consolidated and Further 
Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (Public Law 113-6). Funds 
are available for facility construction and upgrades at United 
States diplomatic and consular missions, the Department of 
State's costs associated with the expansion of the Marine 
Security Guard Program, and personnel and equipment to protect 
United States Government employees and their families under 
Chief of Mission authority and property worldwide.
    The Committee notes that the Department of State has 
submitted, in classified form, the report required by section 
1707(c) of Public Law 113-6. However, the Committee does not 
believe the report adequately responds to the directive that 
the Secretary of State provide the Committees on Appropriations 
with an assessment of security requirements at United States 
diplomatic facilities worldwide, a comprehensive plan for 
addressing such requirements, and a detailed description of 
embassy security improvements to be supported from the enhanced 
funding appropriated for fiscal year 2013. The Committee 
directs the Secretary of State to submit to the Committees on 
Appropriations a more responsive, detailed, and forward-looking 
report immediately. The Committee expects the report to include 
timelines and budgets for how the Department will implement the 
recommendations of the Benghazi Accountability Review Board and 
other Department security reviews over the past year and 
identify those priorities that are immediate and those that 
will be implemented over a longer period of time. Furthermore, 
the report should note what resources are currently available, 
and what, if any, additional resources will be needed. The 
report should include information at the country, post, 
mission, or facility level. Finally, the Committee directs the 
Secretary of State to incorporate the comprehensive plan and 
funding requirements in the operating plans required by section 
7076 of this Act.

                    DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR PROGRAMS




Fiscal year 2013 enacted level1,2.....................    $6,550,947,000

    Change from request...............................    -1,616,331,000
    Change from enacted level.........................     -884,915,000

\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.
\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level, the fiscal year 2014
  request, and the Committee recommendation include funds under this
  heading in title VIII designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced
  Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $5,666,032,000 for 
Diplomatic and Consular Programs, including up to 
$1,791,174,000 for Worldwide Security Protection (WSP). 
Additional funds are provided under title VIII for OCO/GWOT.
    The Committee recommendation does not include directives in 
the bill for public diplomacy, as in prior years. The Committee 
continues to support public diplomacy personnel and programs 
and expects the Secretary of State to include projected funding 
for public diplomacy in the spend plan required by section 7076 
of this Act.
    With the exception of positions related to security, the 
Committee recommendation does not include the funds requested 
for hiring new staff above attrition in fiscal year 2014. The 
Committee recommendation also does not include the requested 
extension of authority for Foreign Service overseas 
comparability pay adjustments. The authority to grant overseas 
comparability pay is a matter within the jurisdiction of the 
authorization committees.
    Funds made available under this heading are allocated in 
the following manner:
    Human resources.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$2,069,218,000 for human resources, of which $255,866,000 is 
for WSP. Funds in this category support American salaries at 
overseas and domestic United States diplomatic missions.
    Overseas programs.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$1,202,401,000 for overseas programs, which supports the 
operational programs of regional bureaus of the Department of 
State. Funds support the operations of United States embassies, 
consulates, and other diplomatic posts worldwide. Additional 
funds are provided in title VIII of this Act for OCO/GWOT.
    Diplomatic policy and support.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $754,890,000 for the operational 
programs and management offices of the functional bureaus of 
the Department of State.
    Security programs.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$1,639,523,000 for security programs, of which $1,535,308,000 
is for WSP. Funds support the personnel, equipment and training 
necessary for the protection of diplomatic personnel, overseas 
diplomatic missions, residences, and domestic facilities and 
information.

Fees and Transfers

    The Committee recommendation also includes language similar 
to prior years and requested for fiscal year 2014, which: (1) 
permits not to exceed $10,000,000 to be transferred to 
Emergencies in the Diplomatic and Consular Service for 
emergency evacuations and terrorism rewards; (2) provides 
$1,806,600 in fees collected from other Executive Branch 
agencies and $520,150 from reserves for use of facilities at 
the International Center Complex, as authorized by law and for 
development, maintenance, and security of additional properties 
for the use as an International Center by foreign governments 
or international organizations; (3) provides not to exceed 
$15,000 from reimbursements, surcharges, and fees for use of 
Blair House facilities in accordance with the State Department 
Basic Authorities Act of 1956; and (4) makes not to exceed 
$5,000,000 in fee collections available until expended for 
various activities.
    International Center, Washington, D.C.--The Committee 
recommendation does not include a separate appropriation for 
the International Center, as proposed in the request. The 
recommendation continues prior year language under this heading 
related to the collection of fees from other executive agencies 
and funds derived from the reserve authorized by section 5 of 
the International Center Act.

Border Security Program

    In addition to the funds appropriated under this heading, 
an estimated $2,585,541,000 will become available through 
authorized fees and surcharges for the Border Security Program, 
of which $1,852,316,000 is from the collection of Machine 
Readable Visa fees, $47,161,000 is from the collection of Fraud 
Prevention fees, and $686,064,000 is from collection of 
Enhanced Border Security Program fees. The Committee 
recommendation does not include the requested extension of the 
Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) surcharge 
authority. The Committee understands that the extension of this 
authority is under consideration by the authorization committee 
of jurisdiction. If enacted, the WHTI surcharge will make 
available an additional $186,150,000 for the Border Security 
program. This would bring the total amount for the program to 
$2,771,691,000 to address workload increases in the passport 
and visa program and the proposed security enhancements.
    Visa program.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State 
to develop and conduct a pilot program for processing B-1 and 
B-2 visas in geographically large countries using secure remote 
videoconferencing technology as a method for conducting visa 
interviews of applicants unless the Secretary determines and 
reports to the Committees on Appropriations that such program 
poses an undue security risk and cannot be conducted in a 
manner consistent with maintaining security controls. Within 90 
days of completion of the pilot program, the Secretary shall 
provide the Committees on Appropriations with a detailed 
description of the results of the program, including an 
assessment of the efficacy, efficiency, and security of the 
remote videoconferencing technology as a method for conducting 
visa interviews of applicants and provide recommendations for 
whether such program should be continued, broadened, or 
modified.
    The Committee is concerned that granting United States 
entry visas to high-level officials from dangerous and 
oppressive states, especially Communist Party members from 
Cuba, raises national security, foreign policy, and human 
rights concerns, and is inconsistent with section 102(e) of the 
Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity Act (LIBERTAD) Act of 
1996 (Public Law 104-114), Section 1 of Presidential 
Proclamation 5377, and Presidential Proclamation 8697 regarding 
human rights. As such, the Committee directs the Secretary of 
State to take all necessary measures to ensure that high-level 
Cuban government officials, and their immediate family members, 
do not gain United States entry in the future.

Worldwide Security Protection

    The Committee recommendation includes $1,791,174,000 for 
WSP within the funds appropriated under this heading in this 
title. Additional funds are provided under title VIII for OCO/
GWOT.
    The WSP program provides the core funding for the 
protection of life, property, and information of the Department 
of State. WSP funding supports a worldwide guard force 
protecting overseas diplomatic missions, residences, and 
domestic facilities. Roughly 2,000 direct-hire diplomatic 
security personnel are deployed worldwide to support and 
protect United States Government staff and facilities. In 
addition, the WSP program appropriation supports the protection 
of national security information, and the integrity of the 
Department of State's network of information systems.
    The amount recommended includes the full amount necessary 
for the recurring costs of the 151 new security positions 
funded in fiscal year 2013.

Other matters

    Ambassador's Fund for Cultural Preservation.--The Committee 
recommendation includes language prohibiting funds under this 
heading from supporting the Ambassador's Fund for Cultural 
Preservation. Given the fiscal constraints facing the 
Committee, support of cultural preservation projects from the 
Department of State's core operating account cannot be 
justified.
    American Institute in Taiwan.--The Committee recommendation 
includes authority for the Secretary of State to transfer up to 
$9,400,000 of the funds appropriated under this heading to 
funds appropriated under Payment to the American Institute in 
Taiwan. The transfer of funds is necessary to offset the loss 
of non-immigrant visa fee revenue resulting from the approval 
of Taiwan as a Visa Waiver Program country.
    Asia-Pacific region.--The Committee notes the passage of H. 
Res. 121 in the House of Representatives on July 30, 2007 and 
urges the Secretary of State to encourage the Government of 
Japan to address the issues raised in the resolution.
    Conflict Stabilization Operations (CSO).--The Committee 
recommendation continues the authority for the Secretary of 
State to transfer up to $30,000,000 of the funds appropriated 
under this heading to CSO.
    Domestic workers of foreign missions.--The Committee is 
concerned that the Department of State is not fully and 
effectively implementing section 203(a)(2) of the William 
Wilberforce Trafficking Victim Protection Act of 2008 that is 
intended to protect domestic workers of foreign missions and 
international organizations. The Committee directs the 
Secretary to consider the following as ``credible evidence'' 
when determining whether to suspend the issuance of A-3 or G-5 
visas, under such section: (1) a final court judgment 
(including a default judgment) issued against a current or 
former employee of such mission or organization; (2) the 
issuance of a T-visa to the victim; or (3) a request by the 
Department of State to the sending state that immunity of 
individual diplomats or family members be waived to permit 
criminal prosecution. Additionally, the Committee urges that 
appropriate steps be taken to conduct private, face-to-face 
interviews of A-3 and G-5 visa holders applying to extend their 
status as a means to better detect and prevent abuse.
    International religious freedom.--The Committee directs the 
Department of State to fully implement both the letter and 
intent of section 108 of the International Religious Freedom 
Act of 1988, including the directives to maintain lists of 
persons believed to be imprisoned for their religious faith and 
to incorporate religious freedom concerns at every possible 
opportunity during meetings between United States Government 
representatives and foreign dignitaries. The Committee 
recommends that the Under Secretary for Political Affairs 
maintain an active, consolidated prisoner of conscience list as 
a means of elevating these issues during senior bilateral 
discussions.
    The Committee notes that the 2013 annual report of the 
United States Commission on International Religious Freedom 
recommends that the Secretary of State re-designate eight 
countries, and add seven new countries, to the list of 
countries of particular concern (CPC), those governments that 
have engaged in or tolerated particularly severe violations of 
religious freedom. The Committee is concerned that the 
Administration has only once issued CPC designations and urges 
the Secretary of State to fully comply with the requirements of 
section 402 of the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998.
    Iran.--The Committee supports sanctions on Iran and urges 
the Secretary of State to continue to make every effort to 
secure a coordinated international response to Iran's nuclear 
program to bring Iran into compliance with treaties, UN 
resolutions, and international standards.
    Lobbying restrictions.--The Committee is concerned about a 
growing perception that former senior United States Government 
diplomatic officials are representing a foreign entity or 
government that the Department of State has determined to be a 
state sponsor of terrorism or a country of particular concern. 
The Committee urges the Secretary of State to examine this 
matter and to take appropriate steps, either administratively 
or through a legislative proposal, to ensure that appropriate 
rules are in place.
    Mexico.--The Committee recognizes a need for greater 
economic engagement between the United States and Mexico and 
urges the Department of State to explore opportunities in this 
area, including engagement with business leaders in both 
countries, in order to enhance dialogue and cooperative efforts 
to improve economic growth, increase global market 
competitiveness, improve United States-Mexico trade and 
investment, create jobs, and raise living standards for 
citizens of both countries, within a framework that fully 
respects and supports national sovereignty and interests.
    The Committee urges the Department of State to strengthen 
its engagement in the United States-Mexico Binational Bridges 
and Border Crossing Group infrastructure needs on the border.
    Office of Global Health Diplomacy.--The Department of State 
shall submit to the Committees on Appropriations, not later 
than 180 days after enactment of this Act, a report on the 
goals and activities of the Office of Global Health Diplomacy, 
with a particular emphasis on activities undertaken to maximize 
effective coordination across implementing agencies and 
anticipated budgetary and management needs.
    Monitoring and combating trafficking in persons.--The 
Committee recommendation includes $6,521,000 for the Office to 
Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, which is the same as 
the request.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to post the 
National Human Trafficking Resources Center hotline, email 
address, and Web site information in all United States 
Embassies and Consulates in areas where visa applications are 
processed.
    The Committee urges the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights 
and Labor to continue its efforts to combat human trafficking 
and exploitive labor practices overseas, including its efforts 
to encourage businesses to adopt policies and participate in 
multi-stakeholder initiatives to eliminate such practices 
within corporate supply chains, and strengthen its efforts to 
include human trafficking and slavery issues within its 
intergovernmental cooperation programs.
    Satellite Disputes.--The Committee is concerned about the 
satellite coordination dispute between the United States and 
Russia regarding areas serving critical regions of North and 
South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The 
Committee expects the Department of State to actively monitor 
this issue to ensure that the matter is resolved in a manner 
that protects United States rights and interests and directs 
the Secretary of State to update the Committees on 
Appropriations and other appropriate committees on any 
developments related to this issue.
    Special envoys.--The Committee urges the Secretary of State 
to review the number of special envoys at the Department of 
State with a view towards the elimination of envoys that are no 
longer needed and are duplicative of the work of the regional 
and functional bureaus. In addition, the Committee urges the 
Secretary of State as part of the review to, if authorized, 
appoint a special envoy to promote religious freedom of 
minorities in the Near East and South Central Asia, with a 
priority focus on Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
    Tibet.--The Committee previously provided funding for a 
United States consulate in Lhasa, Tibet, and directed the 
Department of State not to consent to opening a consular post 
in the United States by the People's Republic of China until 
such time as the People's Republic of China consents to opening 
a United States consular post in Lhasa, Tibet. The Committee 
directs the Secretary of State to submit a report to the 
Committees on Appropriations, not later than 45 days after 
enactment of this Act, on the status of efforts to establish a 
United States consulate in Lhasa, Tibet, and a description of 
the restrictions, if any, on travel to and within the Tibet 
Autonomous Region and other Tibetan autonomous jurisdictions 
faced by United States diplomatic personnel.
    United States Interests Section in Havana (USINT).--The 
Committee appreciates the importance of the Department of 
State, and particularly the USINT, for its critical role in 
furthering important United States policy goals. The Committee 
encourages the Department of State to ensure that USINT 
personnel and facilities are accessible to pro-democracy 
activists in Cuba and other independent members of civil 
society. The Committee further encourages USINT to actively 
facilitate connections between Americans in the United States, 
or Americans who travel to Cuba, with Cuban pro-democracy 
activists, independent labor unions, independent librarians, 
independent human rights groups, independent religious 
organizations, and other Cubans not affiliated with the 
government who are working for change from within Cuba, and to 
keep the Committee informed on its efforts.
    Western Hemisphere.--The Committee encourages the 
Department of State to expand support of educational and 
cultural exchange programs with countries in Latin and Central 
America and increase opportunities in the region for students 
from disadvantaged backgrounds or historically underserved 
populations to participate.
    The Committee is aware of the work of the Bureau of Western 
Hemisphere Affairs to promote stable democracies throughout the 
region through racial and ethnic equality initiatives, 
including coordinating and implementing joint action plans with 
governments such as Brazil and Colombia. The Committee 
recommendation includes funds to continue these initiatives 
during fiscal year 2014.
    Warehousing alternatives.--The Committee remains concerned 
about the costs associated with shipping and warehousing of 
furnishings for Foreign Service Officers posted overseas. The 
Committee urges the Department of State to review options for 
substantially reducing these costs, while improving delivery 
times and available choices for Foreign Service Officers. The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to report to the 
Committees on Appropriations, not later than 30 days after 
enactment of this Act, on the findings of this review.
    Workforce diversity.--The Committee supports ongoing 
partnerships between the Department of State and community 
colleges and universities that focus on recruiting and 
preparing students from institutions with large minority 
populations for positions in the United States Foreign Service. 
The Committee directs that funding for these partnerships be 
done on a competitive basis.
    The Committee requests the Secretary of State to report to 
the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 90 days after 
enactment of this Act, on initiatives to increase diversity in 
the Department of State's workforce. The report shall detail 
racial and ethnic minority recruitment, retention, and 
promotion efforts; professional development support for mid-
career and senior professionals, including in the Senior 
Executive and Foreign Services; and diversity training for 
Department of State mid-career and senior leadership.

  heading in title VIII designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced
  Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $59,406,000 for 
support of the oversight personnel and activities of the Office 
of Inspector General (OIG) at the Department of State. 
Additional funds are provided under title VIII for OCO/GWOT. 
When combined with funds appropriated in title VIII for OCO/
GWOT, the amount recommended meets the request.
    The Committee directs the Office of Inspector General to 
include in its inspection reports any incidents and related 
amounts of damages or losses in which United States Government 
equipment, property, or other materials within the purview of 
the Chief of Mission have been seized, destroyed, or otherwise 
rendered useless by a government that is also a recipient of 
United States bilateral assistance.
    The Committee recommendation deletes language carried in 
prior years waiving the statutory requirement that all posts be 
inspected every five years. The Committee understands that this 
language is under consideration by the authorizing committee of 
jurisdiction.
    The funds appropriated will support the audits, 
investigations, and inspections of worldwide operations and 
programs of the Department of State and Broadcasting Board of 
Governors. The Committee urges the OIG to continue the 
coordination of audit plans and activities involving Department 
of State operations and programs in Afghanistan with the 
Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction 
(SIGAR), to both ensure the development of comprehensive 
oversight plans and to avoid duplication and overlap.

\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level and the Committee
  recommendation include funds under this heading in title VIII
  designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency
  Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $438,847,000 for 
Educational and Cultural Exchange Programs. Additional funds 
are provided under title VIII for OCO/GWOT.
    Funding recommended under this heading supports 
international educational, professional, and cultural exchange 
programs, including the Fulbright student and scholar 
exchanges, Citizen Exchanges and the International Visitors 
Program, as well as related staff and administrative costs.
    Section 7076 of this Act includes a requirement that the 
Secretary of State submit to the Committees on Appropriations 
an operating plan for funds appropriated under this heading. 
The Committee expects that such plan will include the 
distribution of unobligated balances and recoveries, as well as 
any transfers to this account from other accounts in fiscal 
year 2014.
    Special academic, professional, and cultural exchange 
programs.--The Committee recommendation does not specify 
amounts for special academic, professional, and cultural 
exchange programs, as was the practice in prior years. The 
Committee encourages the Secretary of State to continue support 
of these programs where consistent with strategic priorities, 
including Tibetan exchanges and fellowships and the George 
Mitchell Fellowship Program. The Committee expects that funds 
for special exchange programs will be awarded on a competitive 
basis and the planned levels for each will be included in the 
fiscal year 2014 operating plan.
    Other exchanges.--The Committee recognizes the value of 
competitive exchange programs for young people, including the 
Youth Exchange and Study program; the Future Leaders Exchange; 
educator programs, including critical language programs; and 
programs providing overseas training in strategic languages for 
Americans. The Committee urges the Secretary of State to 
continue to give priority to exchange programs from countries 
with high national security importance.
    Western Hemisphere.--The Committee encourages the 
Department of State to expand support of educational and 
cultural exchange programs with Mexico and other countries in 
Latin and Central America and increase opportunities in the 
region for students from disadvantaged backgrounds or 
historically underserved populations to participate.
    Fee limitation.--The Committee recommendation includes a 
limitation of not to exceed $5,000,000 on the use of fees or 
other payments received from or in connection with English 
teaching, educational advising and counseling, and exchange 
visitor programs as authorized by law. This is the same as the 
request.

    The Committee recommendation includes $6,933,000 for 
Representation Expenses authorized by section 905 of the 
Foreign Service Act of 1980.
    These funds are used to reimburse Foreign Service Officers 
for expenditures incurred in their official capacities abroad 
in establishing and maintaining relations with officials of 
foreign governments and appropriate members of local 
communities. The Department of State is directed to continue 
the submission of quarterly reports to the Committees on 
Appropriations containing detailed information on the allotment 
and expenditure of this appropriation.

              PROTECTION OF FOREIGN MISSIONS AND OFFICIALS




Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................       $27,000,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................        28,200,000
Committee recommendation..............................        25,642,000
    Change from request...............................        -2,558,000
    Change from enacted level.........................       -1,358,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $25,642,000 for 
Protection of Foreign Missions and Officials (PFMO).
    Funds provided under this heading are used to reimburse 
local governments and communities for the extraordinary costs 
incurred in providing protection for international 
organizations, foreign missions and officials, and foreign 
dignitaries under certain circumstances. To be eligible for 
reimbursement under the regular program, the costs must be 
incurred in a city with 20 or more consular or diplomatic 
missions staffed by accredited personnel and all costs must be 
certified as eligible by the Department of State's Bureau of 
Diplomatic Security. In addition, funds may be used for 
reimbursement for an extraordinary event in a jurisdiction that 
does not meet the regular program eligibility requirements, if 
specifically allowed. The Committee expects the Department of 
State to provide reimbursement to local jurisdictions on a 
timely basis if claims are fully justified.
    The Committee requests that the Department of State 
continue to submit to the Committees on Appropriations a semi-
annual report on the number of claims for extraordinary 
protective services that have been submitted by eligible 
jurisdictions that are certified as meeting the program 
requirements and the amount of unobligated funds available to 
pay such claims.

            EMBASSY SECURITY, CONSTRUCTION, AND MAINTENANCE
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level1,2.....................    $1,626,624,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................     2,399,351,000
Committee recommendation..............................     2,399,351,000
    Change from request...............................                 0
    Change from enacted level.........................     +772,727,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.
\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level, the fiscal year 2014
  request, and the Committee recommendation include funds under this
  heading in title VIII designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced
  Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $2,399,351,000 for 
Embassy Security, Construction, and Maintenance. Additional 
funds are provided under title VIII for OCO/GWOT.
    The recommendation designates $1,614,000,000 for priority 
worldwide security upgrades, acquisition, and construction, and 
$785,351,000 for other maintenance, construction, and 
operations costs.
    This account provides funds to manage United States 
Government real property overseas, maintain Government-owned 
and long-term leased properties at approximately 283 locations, 
and to lease office and functional facilities and residential 
units, not only for the Department of State, but also for all 
United States employees overseas.
    The recommendation continues prior year language that 
prohibits funds from being used for acquisition of furniture, 
furnishings, and generators for other departments and agencies.
    Capital Security Cost Sharing Program (CSCSP).--The 
Committee recommendation continues language in section 7004 of 
this Act requiring all agencies and departments to fully meet 
their capital cost sharing obligations under subsection (e) of 
section 604 of the Secure Embassy Construction and 
Counterterrorism Act of 1999, in order to be allocated office 
space or other accommodations in newly constructed or renovated 
diplomatic facilities. In addition, the recommendation 
continues language in section 7004 of this Act, similar to 
language carried in prior years, directing the Secretary of 
State, in consultation with the Director of the Office of 
Management and Budget, to determine the annual program level 
and agency shares in a manner that is proportional to the 
Department of State's contribution to the CSCSP. The Committee 
directs that funds appropriated in prior Acts not be used to 
augment the Department of State's contribution for purposes of 
determining the capital cost sharing obligation of other 
agencies for fiscal year 2014.
    Limitation on the New London Embassy.--Section 7006 of this 
Act continues the limitation on the use of funds, other than 
the revenues generated from real property sales located in 
London, United Kingdom, for site acquisition and mitigation, 
planning, design or construction of the New London Embassy and 
continues the requirement for regular reporting on the progress 
and cost of the project.
    Operating plan.--Section 7076 of this Act requires the 
Secretary of State to submit to the Committees on 
Appropriations an operating plan for funds appropriated under 
this heading. Such plan should include all resources available 
to the Department in fiscal year 2014 for operations, 
maintenance, and construction, and an accounting of the actual 
and anticipated proceeds of sales for all projects in fiscal 
year 2013.
    Worldwide Security Upgrades (WSU).--The Committee 
recommendation includes $1,614,000,000 for embassy security 
projects, which is the same as the request. The funds made 
available for WSU projects are sufficient to fully support the 
Department of State's share of CSCSP at the level recommended 
by the Benghazi Accountability Review Board and will accelerate 
completion of the multi-year program to construct new secure 
replacement facilities for the Department of State's most 
vulnerable embassies and consulates and to provide additional 
compound security measures and upgrades. As of February 2013, 
97 new facilities had been constructed under the program and 
another 37 facilities were under design or construction. 
Combined, these projects represent over half of the 195 
facilities identified for replacement following the bombings in 
Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in 1998. The 
Committee expects that projects undertaken by this program will 
continue to address the security needs of the highest priority 
facilities.

           EMERGENCIES IN THE DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR SERVICE
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................        $9,300,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................         9,652,000
Committee recommendation..............................         8,832,000
    Change from request...............................          -820,000
    Change from enacted level.........................         -468,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $8,832,000 to enable 
the Secretary of State to meet unforeseen emergencies arising 
in the Diplomatic and Consular Service. Funding provided under 
this heading is available until expended.
    This appropriation provides resources for the Department of 
State to meet emergency requirements in the conduct of foreign 
affairs, including for: (1) travel and subsistence expenses for 
relocation of American employees of the United States 
Government and their families from troubled areas to the United 
States and/or safe-haven posts; (2) allowances granted to 
Department of State employees and their dependents evacuated to 
the United States for the convenience of the Government; and 
(3) payment of rewards for information concerning terrorist 
activities.
    The recommendation continues prior year language providing 
the authority to transfer up to $1,000,000 from this heading to 
the Repatriation Loans Program heading. This authority will 
ensure an adequate level of resources for loans to American 
citizens through the Repatriation Loans Program should 
additional funds be required in fiscal year 2014 due to an 
unanticipated increase in the number of loans.

                   REPATRIATION LOANS PROGRAM ACCOUNT
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................        $1,447,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................         1,700,000
Committee recommendation..............................         1,374,000
    Change from request...............................          -326,000
    Change from enacted level.........................          -73,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes a total of $1,374,000 
for the Repatriation Loans Program Account for the subsidy cost 
of repatriation loans, as authorized by 22 U.S.C. 2671. The 
amount recommended does not include funds for the 
administrative costs of the program, as in prior years. 
Beginning in fiscal year 2014, administrative expenses will be 
supported from Border Security Program fees. This account 
provides emergency loans to assist destitute Americans abroad 
who have no other source of funds to return to the United 
States.

              PAYMENT TO THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE IN TAIWAN
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................       $21,108,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................        36,221,000
Committee recommendation..............................        20,046,000
    Change from request...............................       -16,175,000
    Change from enacted level.........................       -1,062,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $20,046,000 for 
Payment to the American Institute in Taiwan. The recommendation 
supports direct and indirect operating expenses. Any remaining 
funds will be set aside for special projects and consular 
service upgrades.
    The Taiwan Relations Act requires that programs concerning 
Taiwan be carried out by the American Institute in Taiwan and 
authorizes funds to be appropriated to the Secretary of State 
to carry out the provisions of the Act. The Institute 
administers programs in the areas of economic and commercial 
services, cultural affairs, travel services, and logistics. The 
Department of State contracts with the American Institute in 
Taiwan to carry out these activities.
    The Committee recommendation includes authority for the 
Secretary of State to transfer up to $9,400,000 of the funds 
appropriated under Diplomatic and Consular Programs to funds 
appropriated under this heading. Because Taiwan joined the Visa 
Waiver Program at the end of 2012, the additional funds are 
needed to cover residual consular costs that result from the 
loss of non-immigrant visa fee revenue.

     PAYMENT TO THE FOREIGN SERVICE RETIREMENT AND DISABILITY FUND
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level........................      $158,900,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................       158,900,000
Committee recommendation..............................       158,900,000
    Change from request...............................                 0
    Change from enacted level.........................                 0
    The Committee recommendation includes $158,900,000 for 
Payment to the Foreign Service Retirement and Disability Fund.
    This appropriation, which is considered mandatory for 
budget scorekeeping purposes, is authorized by the Foreign 
Service Act of 1980, which provides for an appropriation to the 
Fund in 30 equal annual installments of the amount required for 
the unfunded liability created by new benefits, new groups of 
beneficiaries, or increased salaries on which benefits are 
computed. The Retirement Fund is maintained through 
contributions made by participants, matching government 
contributions, special government contributions (including this 
account), interest on investments, and voluntary contributions.

                      INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

              CONTRIBUTIONS TO INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level1,2.....................    $1,449,700,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................     1,573,454,000

    Change from request...............................      -901,829,000
    Change from enacted level.........................     -778,075,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.
\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level and the Committee
  recommendation include funds under this heading in title VIII
  designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency
  Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $671,625,000 for 
Contributions to International Organizations. Additional funds 
are provided under title VIII for OCO/GWOT.
    Capital Master Plan (CMP).--The Committee recommendation 
includes language prohibiting funds in this bill for the 
design, renovation, and construction of the UN Headquarters. 
The Committee expects the United States Mission to the UN 
(USUN) and the Department of State to continue to monitor the 
progress of the UN Headquarters CMP and directs the Department 
of State to provide an updated report to the Committees on 
Appropriations, not later than 90 days after enactment of this 
Act, on the current status of the CMP, including its initial 
scope and costs, any modifications made or planned, the total 
contributions made to date by each UN Member state, and the 
remaining unmet requirements due to cost over-runs from the 
initial CMP plan or from unpaid contributions still expected.
    Credits.--The Committee recommendation includes language, 
modified from the prior year, under this heading requiring that 
the Secretary of State report to the Committees on 
Appropriations not later than May 1, 2014, on any credits 
available to the United States, including from the UN Tax 
Equalization Fund (TEF), and provide semi-annual updates on the 
estimates of assessed costs for the current and following 
fiscal year, including offsets from available TEF credits and 
updated foreign currency exchange rates.
    Operating plan.--The Committee includes language in section 
7076 of this Act requiring that an operating plan for 
Contributions to International Organizations be submitted to 
the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 30 days after 
enactment of this Act. The Committee expects the operating plan 
to include each international organization funded, a notation 
of any exchange rate fluctuations that occurred since the 
congressional budget justification was developed, and a 
description of any TEF credits applied. This operating plan may 
also serve as one of the semi-annual updates required under the 
third proviso of Contributions to International Organizations.
    Prioritization of international organizations.--The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to conduct a review of 
United States membership in each international organization and 
prioritize participation in, and funding for, each organization 
in accordance with United States policy goals. The Committee 
expects the Department of State to prioritize payments for the 
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the North 
Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
    United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural 
Organization (UNESCO).--The Committee notes that, due to the 
application of Public Law 101-246 and Public Law 103-236, 
United States contributions are currently being withheld from 
UNESCO. The funding recommendation reflects the deduction of 
the amounts requested for assessed contributions to UNESCO.
    United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC).--The Committee 
is deeply concerned about the credibility and effectiveness of 
the UNHRC, especially because of its disproportionate focus on 
Israel. The Committee also notes with disappointment the 
ascension to the UNHRC of countries with poor human rights 
records. The Committee recommendation includes modified 
language in title VII prohibiting funds to the UNHRC unless 
certain conditions are met.
    United Nations reform.--The Committee expects the 
Department of State and USUN to keep UN reform a high priority 
and expects the Department and USUN to work in conjunction with 
other UN member states to achieve the most effective and 
efficient UN possible. The Committee continues to closely 
monitor the management reform efforts initiated in prior years 
to identify overlapping and outdated mandates in order to make 
the UN more efficient, accountable, and transparent.
    The Committee expects the Department of State to encourage 
and support the UN to build a strong and lasting capability to 
investigate waste, fraud, and abuse. The Committee directs USUN 
and the Department of State to continue to advocate for 
improving internal controls, efficiency, and effectiveness of 
the UN. The Committee continues to expect the UN and each 
specialized agency to have a designated official to carry out 
an independent ethics function, and to provide protection from 
retaliation to whistleblowers who volunteer information 
concerning waste, fraud, or abuse.
    The Committee expects each international organization, and 
the Department of State representatives to those organizations, 
to work to develop processes to evaluate, prioritize, and 
terminate programs. The Committee further expects efforts will 
be made to contain overall budgets by eliminating duplicative 
activities, excessive administrative costs, and inefficient 
operations.
    The Committee recommendation includes modified language in 
section 7049 of this Act withholding a portion of the funds for 
the UN or any international organization until the Secretary of 
State certifies that certain transparency requirements have 
been met. The Committee recommendation provides the Secretary 
the ability to waive the requirement to avert a humanitarian 
crisis.
    UN regular budget.--The Committee includes language carried 
in prior years requiring that any proposal to increase funding 
for any UN program without identifying an offsetting decrease 
in the UN budget must be communicated to the Committees on 
Appropriations in advance of the formal notification, 
consideration, and adoption of such a proposal in the General 
Assembly.
    Voting practices of United Nations Member States.--The 
Committee directs the Department of State to continue to submit 
a report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 
120 days after enactment of this Act, on the voting practices 
of UN member states.

        CONTRIBUTIONS FOR INTERNATIONAL PEACEKEEPING ACTIVITIES
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................    $2,006,499,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................     2,094,661,000
Committee recommendation..............................     1,680,827,000
    Change from request...............................      -413,834,000
    Change from enacted level.........................     -325,672,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $1,680,827,000 for 
Contributions for International Peacekeeping Activities. The 
Committee provides funding for the UN logistics and support 
package for the African Union Mission in Somalia under 
Peacekeeping Operations, instead of under this heading.
    The Committee recommendation includes language, similar to 
the prior year, requiring 15-day advance notice of any new or 
expanded mission, together with a statement of cost, duration, 
national interest, exit strategy, and source of funds. The 
recommendation also continues language stating that funds shall 
be made available for peacekeeping activities unless the 
Secretary of State determines that American manufacturers and 
suppliers are not being provided equal procurement 
opportunities, language prohibiting funds for any peacekeeping 
mission that will involve United States Armed Forces under the 
command and control of a foreign national unless certain 
requirements have been met, and language requiring a report on 
any credits available, including those from UN peacekeeping 
missions or the Tax Equalization Fund, and requiring that these 
credits may only be available through the regular notification 
procedures of the Committees on Appropriations. The Committee 
includes the request to make all funds under this heading 
available for two fiscal years.
    Operating plan.--The Committee includes language in section 
7076 of this Act requiring an operating plan for Contributions 
to International Peacekeeping Activities to be submitted to the 
Committees on Appropriations. The Committee expects the 
operating plan to include each peacekeeping mission funded and 
a description of any credits applied.
    Oversight.--The Committee continues to support independent 
oversight of the UN to identify waste, fraud, and abuse 
(including sexual abuse in peacekeeping operations), and the 
Committee supports reforms to ensure that such practices are 
eradicated. The Committee expects the Department of State to 
provide the necessary support to ensure oversight of UN 
peacekeeping missions.
    Peacekeeping cap.--The Committee recommendation does not 
include a requested provision to adjust the authorized level of 
the United States assessment for peacekeeping activities from 
25 percent to 28.3 percent. Accordingly, the funding 
recommendation reflects the 25 percent rate.
    Re-evaluating peacekeeping priorities.--The Committee urges 
the Department of State and USUN to work with the UN Department 
of Peacekeeping Operations to evaluate all peacekeeping 
activities by addressing the number of missions, limiting the 
scope of missions, reconsidering changes to mandates when 
political resolutions have stalled, and contemplating phase-out 
and withdrawal when mission goals have been substantially 
achieved. The Committee directs the Secretary of State to 
provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later 
than 180 days after enactment of this Act, on efforts made to 
address these issues.
    Trafficking in persons and illegal sexual exploitation.--
The Committee remains concerned about cases of UN peacekeepers 
abusing the people they have been sent to protect. The 
Committee recommendation includes language, modified from the 
prior year, requiring that, prior to obligating or expending 
funds for any new or expanded peacekeeping mission, the UN has 
taken necessary measures to prevent UN employees, contractor 
personnel, and peacekeeping troops serving in the mission from 
trafficking in persons, exploiting victims of trafficking, or 
committing acts of illegal sexual exploitation or other 
violations of human rights, that the UN bring to justice 
individuals who engage in such acts while participating in the 
peacekeeping mission, including the prosecution in the home 
countries of such individuals in connection with such acts, and 
to make information about such cases publicly available in the 
country in which an alleged crime occurs and on the United 
Nations Web site.

funding for environmental, hydrologic, and hydraulic studies 
along the Rio Grande Valley, when consistent with the projects 
outlined within the Mexican Water Treaty of 1944, Treaty Series 
994.
    The Secretary of State shall continue to notify the 
Committees on Appropriations, in accordance with underlying law 
and the notification requirements of this Act, on its 
activities to coordinate and implement the obligations set 
forth in the relevant treaties in force between the United 
States and Mexico with respect to the common border and shared 
water resources of the two countries.

    The Committee recommendation includes $31,445,000 for 
International Fisheries Commissions.
    The Committee recommendation includes funds to support the 
Great Lakes Fisheries Commission and the Pacific Salmon 
Commission at not less than the request. The Committee intends 
that the funds made available for the Great Lakes Fisheries 
Commission be used only for meeting the United States 
obligations under the 1954 Convention on Great Lakes Fisheries.
    Funds appropriated under this heading support the United 
States share of the expenses of International Fisheries 
Commissions and related organizations, as well as the travel 
expenses of the United States commissioners. The Commissions 
funded by this appropriation were established by treaties and 
agreements negotiated by the United States, ratified by the 
President with the advice and consent of the Senate. The 
treaties protect access to shared international fisheries 
resources and support other vital economic and environmental 
interests. The commercial and recreational fisheries managed by 
these organizations generate income from $12 to $15 billion 
annually for the United States.
    Section 7076 of this Act includes a requirement that the 
Secretary of State submit to the Committees on Appropriations 
an operating plan for funds appropriated under this heading.

    The Committee recommendation continues a requirement that 
the BBG notify the Committees on Appropriations within 15 days 
of any determination by the Board that any of its broadcast 
entities were found to be in violation of the principles, 
standards, or journalistic code of ethics.
    Internet freedom.--The Committee recommendation also 
continues the directive to expand unrestricted access to 
information on the Internet through the development and use of 
circumvention technologies. The Committee is deeply concerned 
about the challenges facing those living in closed societies 
with hostile Internet environments where access to information 
and independent media is severely limited. The Committee 
encourages the BBG to significantly expand its work to enhance 
access to information and independent media, including the 
operational expansion of field-tested programs that provide 
unmonitored and uncensored access to the Internet for large 
numbers of users and research and development of existing and 
new programs. The Committee urges the BBG to continue to review 
broadcast activities for savings and efficiencies as a means of 
increasing internet freedom activities. The Committee directs 
the BBG to detail amounts planned for internet freedom in 
fiscal year 2014 as part of the operating plan required by 
section 7076 of this Act.
    Inspector General report.--The Committee directs the BBG to 
expeditiously implement the recommendations contained in the 
Office of Inspector General report entitled ``Inspection of the 
Broadcasting Board of Governors'' (ISP-IB-13-07) where the BBG 
has existing authority to make such changes and to work with 
the Congressional committees of jurisdiction on the authorities 
needed to implement the remaining recommendations, including 
the recommendation to establish a Chief Executive Officer of 
the BBG.
    Belarus.--The Committee recognizes the effectiveness of 
Polish-based Belsat in bringing independent, outside 
information to the Belarusian people. Consistent with the sense 
of Congress expressed in section 5 of Public Law 109-480, as 
amended by section 3 of Public Law 112-82, the Committee urges 
the BBG and the Department of State to expand the partnership 
with Belsat in furtherance of the commitment of the United 
States to democracy and key foreign policy objectives in 
Europe.
    Broadcasting to Asia.--The Committee continues support to 
maintain a diversified broadcasting program to China that 
includes the continuation of short wave broadcast services.
    Somali Service.--The Committee supports the work of VOA's 
Somali Service, including the continued leveraging of new 
technology, expansion of radio outlets, and the development of 
more partnerships with local FM stations.
    Pakistan.--The Committee encourages VOA to examine the 
feasibility and cost of initiating broadcasting in the Sindhi 
language in Pakistan and be prepared to report on its findings 
during the Committee's hearings on the fiscal year 2015 budget 
request.
    Office of Cuba Broadcasting (OCB).--The Committee 
recommendation includes $28,266,000 for OCB, Radio and TV 
Marti, pursuant to the Radio Broadcasting to Cuba Act of 1983 
and the Television Broadcasting to Cuba Act of 1990.

                   BROADCASTING CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS

                            RELATED PROGRAMS


                          The Asia Foundation

 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................       $17,000,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................        17,000,000
Committee recommendation..............................        13,000,000

    Change from enacted level.........................       -4,000,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $13,000,000 for The 
Asia Foundation (TAF).
    Authorized by The Asia Foundation Act of 1983, TAF operates 
programs in offices throughout Asia. TAF program priorities are 
developed in consultation with the Department of State and 
focus at the country and regional levels on building democratic 
institutions and improving governance, supporting policies and 
institutions required for open markets, increasing 
opportunities for women's participation and empowerment, and 
encouraging stability and cooperative relations among nations 
in the Asia-Pacific region.
    The bill provides sufficient funding for the TAF to 
continue operations and oversight of existing grant programs. 
Due to the Committee's restricted budget allocation, the 
Committee is unable to provide full funding for TAF and notes 
the recommendation is made without prejudice. The Committee 
notes that in fiscal year 2012, TAF received over $145,000,000 
in program revenue from other Federal and non-Federal sources. 
The Committee urges TAF to continue to seek donations from 
private foundations and corporations, competitively bid awards 
from governmental and multilateral development agencies, and 
fee-based or reimbursable agreements as a means of sustaining 
program activities. The Committee requests that TAF include a 
summary table in its annual congressional budget justification 
detailing total revenue and support by category for fiscal year 
2013 and projected for fiscal year 2014.

                    United States Institute of Peace

\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level includes funds under
  this heading in title VIII designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the
  Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $10,705,000, as 
authorized, for the United States Institute of Peace (USIP).
    The bill provides sufficient funding for the USIP to 
continue operations and oversight of existing grant programs. 
Due to the Committee's restricted budget allocation, the 
Committee is unable to provide full funding for USIP and notes 
the recommendation is made without prejudice. The Committee 
notes that USIP received over $18,000,000 in fiscal year 2012 
from interagency transfers and reimbursements to support USIP 
programs. The Committee urges USIP to continue to seek 
competitive awards from Federal agencies and to fully implement 
fee-based or reimbursable agreements, where appropriate, as a 
means of sustaining its activities and programs in an 
environment of fiscal constraint. The Committee requests USIP 
continue to include in the annual congressional budget 
justification information on the amount of funds received in 
fiscal year 2012 from other Federal agencies, and the amount of 
revenue generated from fees and reimbursable agreements in 
fiscal year 2013, and projected for fiscal years 2014 and 2015.

    Change from enacted level.........................                 0\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $117,764,000 for the 
National Endowment for Democracy (NED).
    Of the total, the Committee directs that $100,000,000 shall 
be allocated in the traditional and customary manner, as in 
prior years, to include the core institutes.
    The Committee includes section 7032 of this Act, a

    The President of NED is directed to submit a report to the 
Committees on Appropriations, not later than 45 days after

      TITLE II--UNITED STATES AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT


                  Funds Appropriated to the President


                           OPERATING EXPENSES
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level1,2.....................    $1,092,300,000

Committee recommendation..............................       942,944,000
    Change from request...............................      -385,256,000
    Change from enacted level.........................     -149,356,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.
\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level, the fiscal year 2014
  request, and the Committee recommendation include funds under this
  heading in title VIII designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced
  Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $942,944,000 for 
USAID Operating Expenses. Additional funds are provided under 
title VIII for OCO/GWOT.
    Funds under this heading are provided for salaries and 
expenses of overseas and domestic employees of USAID, personal 
service contractors, and employees hired by other Federal 
agencies but assigned to USAID. Funds under this heading are 
also provided to support USAID staff overseas, as well as 
headquarters staff that support field programs and manage 
regional and worldwide activities.
    The Committee recommendation does not include the funds 
requested for hiring new staff above attrition in fiscal year 
2014. The Committee recommendation also does not include the 
requested extension of authority for Foreign Service overseas 
comparability pay adjustments. The authority to grant overseas 
comparability pay is a matter within the jurisdiction of the 
authorization committees.
    As in past years, the Committee directs the Administrator 
of USAID to provide a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations, not later than 60 days after enactment of this 
Act, that details the number of people employed by USAID, the 
category of employment (direct hire, personal service 
contractor, Participating Agency Service Agreement, and similar 
categories), the veteran status of direct hires employed by 
USAID, the office or overseas post to which they are assigned 
or detailed, the appropriation account used to fund the 
employees, specific legislative authority needed to hire the 
employees, and if hired by another Federal agency, the 
additional administrative expenses charged by that agency. The 
Committee directs that this employment report reflect data as 
of the end of fiscal year 2013.
    As in past years, USAID is directed to notify the 
Committees on Appropriations 15 days prior to any procurement 
action that involves awarding of a sole source contract or 
other non-competitive grant or contract; raising the ceiling on 
an existing Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC); issuing a new 
IQC; awarding an umbrella grant; or raising the ceiling on an 
existing umbrella grant. The Committee expects the thresholds 
for notification to be the same as in fiscal year 2012.
    Direct government-to-government assistance.--The Committee 
remains concerned about USAID providing assistance directly to 
host countries for their own procurement actions. The Committee 
recommendation continues section 7031 of this Act, which is 
intended to ensure that transparency, accountability, and anti-
fraud measures are in place prior to the provision of such 
assistance. The Committee disagrees with any assumption of 
acceptable levels of fraud in USAID programs.
    Diversity.--The Committee expects the Administrator of 
USAID to continue initiatives, including fellowships, to 
promote diversity in the workforce.
    Faith-based organizations.--The Committee recognizes the 
important role that faith-based organizations (FBOs) play in 
the delivery of foreign assistance and expects USAID to ensure 
compliance with existing Federal laws protecting the rights of 
FBOs, including rights related to employment practices, from 
discrimination in competing for and administering projects 
funded with United States foreign assistance.
    Local competition.--The Committee recommendation includes a 
new provision, section 7086 of this Act, regarding local 
competition.
    New programs and reprogramming.--The Committee includes 
language in section 7015 of this Act, modified from the prior 
year, making notification requirements for USAID operations 
consistent with State Department operations. These modified 
notification requirements include, but are not limited to, new 
programs, fellowships, and initiatives not previously justified 
in the congressional budget justification.
    Procurement.--The Committee expects, that to the maximum 
extent practicable, the Administrator of USAID shall ensure 
that United States small, minority-owned, veteran, and 
disadvantaged business enterprises fully participate in the 
provision of goods and services. The Committee directs that the 
Administrator shall prepare and submit to the Committees on 
Appropriations an annual report that describes the actions 
taken to meet this objective and the success of those efforts.
    Procurement guidance.--The Committee directs the 
Administrator of USAID to consult with the Committees on 
Appropriations on any proposed significant or substantive 
change to USAID guidance or directives related to acquisition 
and assistance prior to issuing such guidance or directives to 
USAID posts worldwide.
    Working Capital Fund.--The Committee recommendation does 
not include language requested establishing a working capital 
fund.

    The Committee recommendation includes $8,175,000,000 for 
Global Health Programs.

                      USAID GLOBAL HEALTH PROGRAMS

    The Committee recommendation includes $2,505,000,000 for 
global health programs to be directly apportioned to USAID.
    The Committee supports the fiscal year 2014 budget request 
for maternal and child health funding; recommends $100,000,000 
for nutrition programs under this heading; and provides funding 
for vulnerable children, malaria, and tuberculosis at the 
enacted fiscal year 2012 levels.
    Maternal and child health.--The Committee directs that not 
less than the fiscal year 2014 request level be provided for 
maternal and child health programs under this heading. The 
health of a mother is directly related to the health of her 
children, and the Committee is committed to maintaining an 
emphasis on expanding access to programs that have been proven 
effective in reducing maternal and child mortality. Within this 
level, the Committee directs USAID to maintain funding for 
programs to prevent and treat obstetric fistula at not less 
than $12,000,000.
  The Committee directs USAID to submit a report to the 
Committees on Appropriations, not later than 120 days after 
enactment of this Act, on the amount of appropriated funds 
disbursed over the past five fiscal years for fistula repair 
and the amount disbursed over the past five fiscal years for 
fistula prevention, including a list of all USAID grantees and 
subgrantees receiving funds for obstetric fistula programs, and 
what results have been achieved.
    The Committee recommends $48,000,000 for programs to combat 
and eradicate polio, of which $42,500,000 is provided under 
this heading. The Committee notes that global polio eradication 
programs are also funded by the Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).
    The Committee directs USAID to provide to the Committees on 
Appropriations, not later than 90 days after enactment of this 
Act, a comprehensive strategy on nutrition that includes 
agriculture, food aid, and health interventions.
    Within funds provided, the Committee also encourages USAID 
to continue supporting iodine deficiency disorder, childhood 
blindness, and cleft lip/palate treatment programs.
    The Committee requests that USAID consult with the 
Committees on Appropriations on the estimated need and cost-
effectiveness of programs that focus on the following health 
issues: maternal and neonatal tetanus, children with 
hydrocephalus, children with autism, burn prevention programs, 
viral hepatitis testing, and aquaculture to combat 
malnutrition.
    Neglected tropical diseases.--The Committee notes the 
success of USAID in combating neglected tropical diseases and 
supports the continuation of these successful life-saving 
programs. The Committee encourages USAID to support research 
into new drugs to address these diseases.
    Vaccines.--The Committee recommends a United States 
contribution of $175,000,000 for the Global Alliance for 
Vaccines Initiative (GAVI) for fiscal year 2014.
    The Committee agrees that developing a vaccine is essential 
to the fight against malaria and HIV and encourages USAID to 
continue funding to support their advancement.
    Drug supply chain management.--USAID should take steps to 
improve host country capacity in public health around improved 
drug regulation and supply chain management.
    Health technology.--The Committee continues to support 
USAID's health technologies programs, including the development 
of technologies that maximize the limited resources available 
for global health and ensure that products and medicines 
developed for use in low-resource settings reach the people 
that need such products and medicines.
    Healthcare workforce.--The Committee notes that front-line 
health workers, particularly in Africa and Asia, could save 
millions of at-risk families with proper training and support. 
The Committee directs the Administrator of USAID, in 
consultation with the Global AIDS Coordinator at the Department 
of State, to submit a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations, not later than 45 days after enactment of this 
Act, on progress from fiscal year 2009 through fiscal year 2013 
in increasing equitable access to qualified health workers in 
developing countries, particularly in underserved areas. Such 
report shall also include a comprehensive strategy with 
concrete targets detailing the necessary training and material 
support to expand this access.
    Reproductive health/voluntary family planning.--The 
Committee recommendation includes section 7058 of this Act, 
which provides not more than $461,000,000 for reproductive 
health and voluntary family planning in this Act. This 
provision also addresses funds provided under Economic Support 
Fund for reproductive health and family planning.
    The Committee recommendation continues prior year language 
that does the following: (1) requires that none of the funds 
appropriated in this Act, or any unobligated balances, may be 
made available to any organization or program, which as 
determined by the President, supports or participates in the 
management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary 
sterilization; (2) states that funds cannot be used to pay for 
the performance of abortions as a method of family planning or 
to motivate or coerce any person to practice abortion; (3) 
specifies that population funds shall be available only to 
voluntary family planning projects that offer, either directly 
or through referral, information about access to a broad range 
of family planning methods and services; (4) requires that in 
awarding grants for natural family planning under section 104 
of the Foreign Assistance Act, no applicant shall be 
discriminated against because of such applicant's religious or 
conscientious commitment to offer only natural family planning; 
and (5) requires the provision of accurate information related 
to condoms.
    The Committee includes language in section 7065 of this Act 
prohibiting funds for any foreign nongovernmental organization 
that promotes or performs abortion, except in cases of rape or 
incest or when the life of the mother would be endangered if 
the fetus were carried to term.
    Interagency health issues.--The Committee recognizes that 
several Federal agencies implement global health funding and 
directs the Department of State and USAID to provide a 
government-wide funding summary for fiscal year 2013, and 
projected for fiscal year 2014, including funding provided in 
other appropriations bills, to the Committees on 
Appropriations, not later than 90 days after enactment of this 
Act. The Committee expects the report to include a description 
of the differentiation of goals, implementing partners, and 
auditing standards for each Federal agency.
    The Committee recommends continued support for microbicide 
development and directs the Office of the Global AIDS 
Coordinator (OGAC) to coordinate with USAID, the National 
Institutes of Health, other Federal agencies, and donors in 
order to advance microbicide development and implementation.
    The Committee recognizes the important work of a number of 
innovative partnerships by USAID and OGAC with the private 
sector and other institutional donors to leverage public and 
private investment in global health. These efforts are 
instrumental in combatting a number of health issues unique to 
the survival of women and mothers in sub-Saharan Africa, 
including screening for disease, education and awareness 
campaigns, and other critical improvements to the overall 
health systems and services in some of the most underserved 
areas. The Committee directs the Global AIDS Coordinator and 
the Administrator of USAID to provide a report to the 
Committees on Appropriations, not later than 90 days after 
enactment of this Act, on resources committed by the United 
States Government, as well as those of the private sector and 
other donors, for such collaborations and efforts by the 
partnerships to expand into additional countries.
    The Committee directs USAID and the Department of State to 
coordinate existing programs for orphans and vulnerable 
children, including additional protection for children in 
humanitarian crises, to contribute to the goals and objectives 
of the Action Plan for Children in Adversity. The Committee 
emphasizes that OGAC must also concurrently maintain and 
prioritize the mandate to meet the needs of children affected 
by HIV/AIDS.
    The Committee notes that there are no funds in the budget 
request to establish or renovate residential institutions for 
orphans or other vulnerable children, and any change to this 
policy shall be subject to prior consultation and notification 
of the Committees on Appropriations as well as other 
appropriate committees.

HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment

    The Committee recommendation includes $6,000,000,000 to 
fight HIV/AIDS, the same as the budget request. Of this amount, 
$4,020,000 shall be directly apportioned to the Department of 
State for bilateral programs and $1,650,000,000 for the Global 
Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria (the Global Fund) if the 
contribution will not cause the United States to exceed 33 
percent of the total amount of funds contributed to the Global 
Fund from all sources.
    The Committee recognizes the significant achievements of 
the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through 
the support of anti-retroviral treatment, testing, and 
counseling and recommends continued support for a balanced 
approach of prevention, treatment, and care; a United States 
contribution to UNAIDS; investment in implementation research, 
prevention of mother-to-child transmission programs; and 
funding for pediatric HIV treatment programs in order to meet 
the targets in the PEFPAR five-year plan.
    The Committee encourages OGAC to identify new tools to 
diagnose and safely treat children living with HIV and notes 
the importance of HIV testing, including the use of rapid 
testing, as an important element of HIV prevention.
    The Committee also expects the OGAC Coordinator to consult 
with interested stakeholders such as the PEPFAR Scientific 
Advisory Board in determining the appropriate priorities for 
operations research and impact evaluation research.
    The Committee expects the Inspectors General of the 
Department of State and Broadcasting Board of Governors, the 
Department of Health and Human Services, and the United States 
Agency for International Development to jointly develop 
coordinated plans for oversight activity for the funds provided 
through OGAC. The Inspectors General should also coordinate 
their activities with the Government Accountability Office and 
the Inspectors General of any other United States Government 
implementing entity.
  The Committee agrees that the goal of creating an AIDS-free 
generation is a shared responsibility with partner countries. 
To ensure that the next phase of Partnership Frameworks and 
implementation plans are based on a country ownership path that 
is pursued at a rate appropriate for each individual country 
setting, the Committee directs the Office of the Global AIDS 
Coordinator to report to the Committees on Appropriations, not 
later than 90 days after the date of enactment of this Act, on 
steps taken to develop performance indicators and clear 
milestones that will measure (1) a comparison of necessary 
funding for core interventions, as defined by the PEPFAR 
Blueprint for highest incidence countries, to actual funding 
levels in fiscal year 2013 from the United States and other 
sources, and (2) the level of readiness by each partner country 
to accept greater ownership of PEPFAR-supported programs in a 
way that addresses the needs of populations most acutely 
affected.
    Needles.--The Committee directs that no funds in fiscal 
year 2014 may be used for needle exchange programs.
    Cost efficiencies.--The Committee is committed to ensuring 
that every available dollar in PEPFAR funds goes toward 
providing effective services. Given the now-established 
benefits of antiretroviral treatment in improving health and 
preventing new infections, the Committee supports PEPFAR's 
efforts to continue to reduce per-patient costs for such 
treatment. The Committee directs OGAC to consult with the 
Committees on Appropriations on its efforts to achieve such 
savings not later than 45 days after enactment of this Act.
    The Committee directs the Global AIDS Coordinator to 
provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later 
than September 30, 2014, on HIV/AIDS treatment providers that 
includes the following: (1) estimates of per-patient costs of 
antiretroviral HIV/AIDS treatment as well as the care of people 
with HIV/AIDS who are not receiving antiretroviral treatment, 
(2) a comparison of the costs for equivalent services provided 
by programs not receiving assistance under this Act, and (3) 
estimates of per-patient costs across the program and for urban 
and rural providers. The report should be representative of a 
range of countries and service providers.
    Administrative and overhead costs.--The Committee directs 
OGAC to report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later 
than 45 days after enactment of this Act, on the impact of 
capping administrative expenses at a level of 10 percent per 
annum and a detailed list of efforts that OGAC is undertaking 
to lower administrative costs overseas and domestically.
    Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the 
Global Fund).--The Committee is supportive of a performance-
based, results-oriented multilateral funding mechanism to 
combat HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases. The Committee 
commends the Global Fund Board for adopting the recommendations 
of the High-Level Independent Review Panel on Fiduciary 
Controls and Oversight Mechanism (the High-Level Panel) and 
directs OGAC to continue to provide updates on the Global 
Fund's implementation of the High-Level Panel's recommendations 
throughout the year.
    The Committee recommendation designates that up to five 
percent of funds provided to the Global Fund may be used for 
Global Fund technical assistance. OGAC should continue to 
support efforts to strengthen country coordinating mechanisms 
and principal recipients, improve procurement and supply chains 
in-country, and increase technical capacity of implementing 
governments and organizations. The Committee encourages the use 
of the Department of the Treasury's Office of Technical 
Assistance, funded through transferred funds, in providing 
procurement and budgetary specialists on a temporary basis to 
Global Fund countries.
    Oversight of the Global Fund remains a top priority. The 
Committee continues to support the independence of the Office 
of Inspector General and continues language to withhold 10 
percent of funds provided to the Global Fund until the 
Secretary of State certifies to the Committees on 
Appropriations that the Global Fund's Secretariat and Board 
have not adopted policies that would make the work of the 
Office of Inspector General less transparent or less 
comprehensive.
    As in past years, the Committee directs the Secretary of 
State to provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations, 
not later than 120 days after enactment of this Act, that 
contains the most recent Global Fund audit information, 
commitment and disbursement data, and a summary of the 
recipient and sub-recipient expenditures as reported to the 
United States Government.
    In addition to the certification required in section 7058 
of this Act concerning the function and role of the Office of 
Inspector General, the Committee directs the Secretary of State 
to report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 
60 days after enactment of this Act and every six months until 
September 30, 2014, on the following:
          (1) a description of improvements made to the Global 
        Fund's financial systems and fiduciary controls for 
        grant management in the prior six months;
          (2) a list of countries that tax Global Fund 
        assistance and the estimated tax collected each year, 
        by country;
          (3) the status of the United Nations Development 
        Programme's transition plan for each country in which 
        it operates as an implementer of Global Fund grants; 
        and
          (4) the degree of Board access to, and transparency 
        of, internal Secretariat budgetary expenditures, 
        including contingency funds and other unspecified funds 
        used at the discretion of Secretariat personnel.

                         DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................    $2,519,950,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................     2,837,812,000
Committee recommendation..............................     2,000,000,000
    Change from request...............................      -837,812,000
    Change from enacted level.........................     -519,950,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $2,000,000,000 for 
Development Assistance.
    The Committee notes that the constrained budget environment 
requires careful analysis of funding priorities. The Committee 
recommends that USAID review unobligated and unexpended 
balances that have accumulated over multiple fiscal years in 
order to address the highest priority needs. The Committee 
notes the reprogramming and notification requirements included 
in section 7015 of this Act if unobligated or unexpended 
balances are re-directed.

Agriculture

    The Committee notes that the $250,000,000 requested in the 
Development Assistance account for non-emergency food 
assistance programs was addressed in the fiscal year 2014 
Agriculture Appropriations bill.
    The Committee notes that funds should support food security 
and agriculture development programs. These investments are 
expected to enhance stability in fragile areas, reduce 
dependence on foreign aid, and increase goodwill toward the 
United States. The Committee supports USAID's focus on a 
comprehensive approach that links food security, agricultural 
production, and economic growth. The Committee recommends 
integrating the principles of sustainable natural resource 
management and supports programs that increase access for 
smallholder farmers to land tenure.
    The Committee notes the important role of agriculture 
research in food security and supports the budget request for 
the competitively-awarded Collaborative Research Support 
Programs (CRSPs) that utilize the resources of United States 
universities to overcome the most challenging agricultural 
constraints of developing nations. The Committee understands 
that USAID has supported efforts to ensure the long-term 
productivity of global agriculture by conserving and making 
available key collections of diverse crops and the Committee 
supports continuing these efforts.
    Spend plan.--Pursuant to section 7076 of this Act, the 
Administrator of USAID is required to submit a spend plan on 
food security and agriculture development detailing the 
proposed use of funds by account, office, and country, prior to 
funds being obligated. The spend plan should also specify any 
funds to be transferred to other agencies or international 
financial institutions and for what purpose.

Economic growth

    Microfinance.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$265,000,000 in this Act for microenterprise and microfinance 
development programs. The Committee notes the successful track 
record of microfinance programs and directs that funds be 
targeted to the poor, especially women. The Committee 
encourages investment in a variety of financial services that 
allows the poor to save, borrow, and access insurance, 
remittances, and other key services. The Committee directs the 
Administrator of USAID to prioritize investment in microfinance 
in sub-Saharan Africa and to consult with the Committees on 
Appropriations on efforts to focus existing resources for this 
program. As required by section 251(c) of the Foreign 
Assistance Act of 1961, USAID is to target half of all 
microfinance and microenterprise funds to the very poor, 
defined as those living on less than $1.25 a day.
    Trade capacity building.--The Committee continues to 
support labor and environment capacity building activities 
related to the free trade agreements with the countries of 
Central America, Colombia, Peru, and the Dominican Republic to 
ensure that United States workers and businesses can compete on 
a level playing field. The Committee notes the ongoing 
negotiation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement and 
supports similar programs for the countries party to the 
negotiations including Malaysia, Mexico, and Vietnam.

Education

    American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA).--The 
Committee recommendation includes $23,000,000 for the American 
Schools and Hospitals Abroad program, which is the same as the 
fiscal year 2012 enacted level. The Committee recognizes the 
important contributions made by institutions funded by this 
program, including fostering a positive image of the United 
States that supports foreign policy goals, particularly its 
programs in Africa and the Middle East. The Committee expects 
ASHA funds to continue to be allocated through an open and 
competitive process. The Committee encourages USAID to use 
funds from Operating Expenses to administer the ASHA program in 
a manner consistent with other offices.
    Basic education.--The Committee believes basic education 
should be a key component of the United States Government 
strategy in developing countries. An educated citizenry will 
result in sustained economic growth, strengthened democratic 
institutions, the empowerment of women and girls, and decreased 
extremism. The Committee recommendation includes a total of 
$800,000,000 for basic education programs in this Act and 
directs USAID to establish clear and meaningful metrics in 
evaluating its basic education programs. The Committee supports 
increased United States participation in the Global Partnership 
for Education. The Committee encourages USAID to prioritize the 
special needs of girls' and women's literacy and education, 
including in conflict or post-conflict settings.
    The Committee believes that schools can be centers of 
learning and development for an entire community and expects 
that programs in other sectors should be integrated with 
schools and educational programs as much as possible. USAID 
should prioritize technical assistance for local governments to 
foster communities of learning and should encourage recipient 
countries and other donors to pursue comprehensive development 
efforts to support these programs. USAID is directed to consult 
with the Committees on Appropriations on this initiative on a 
regular basis, as well as stakeholders during the 
implementation of the new basic education strategy to sustain 
progress in literacy and basic education programs. Such 
consultations should include how the strategy will impact all 
age groups.
    University programs.--The Committee recognizes the value of 
USAID's work with American institutions of higher education and 
supports their contributions to development assistance and 
foreign policy goals. The Committee continues to support the 
existing Africa-United States Higher Education Initiative 
Partnerships and directs USAID to fully fund these 
competitively awarded partnerships.
    The Committee urges USAID to prioritize cost-effective 
programs that offer educational opportunities at post-secondary 
institutions in the United States to students from the Latin 
America and Caribbean region with a focus on underserved 
populations.

Global programs

    The Committee includes language on conservation and anti-
trafficking in persons programs under section 7062 of this 
report.
    Child marriage.--The Committee directs the Secretary of 
State to submit a strategy to prevent and respond to child 
marriage, pursuant to section 1207 of Public Law 113-4, to the 
Committees on Appropriations, not later than 30 days after 
enactment of this Act.
    Gender-based violence.--The Committee recommendation 
continues support for programs that address sexual and gender-
based violence pursuant to section 7061 of this Act. The 
Committee directs that the Secretary of State, in consultation 
with the Ambassador-at-Large of the Office for Global Women's 
Issues, should identify and take emergency measures to respond 
to violence against women and girls in situations of armed 
conflict and directs the Secretary of State to consult with the 
Committees on Appropriations, as necessary.
    Victims of torture.--The Committee supports continued 
funding for the USAID victims of torture programs.
    Water, sanitation, and hygiene.--The Committee 
recommendation includes not less than $315,000,000 in this Act 
for long-term, sustainable water supply, sanitation, and 
hygiene projects. The Committee directs that this funding be 
provided pursuant to Public Law 109-121 and should prioritize 
the poorest communities and countries, including not less than 
$117,000,000 for programs and activities in sub-Saharan Africa. 
The Committee expects these programs to include robust 
monitoring and evaluation, including post-project, and directs 
USAID to consult with the Committees on Appropriations on these 
efforts. The Committee supports public-private partnerships to 
leverage additional non-federal investments and expertise for 
water and sanitation-related programs, including through the 
Development Credit Authority, as appropriate.
    Women's leadership capacity.--The Committee notes that 
empowering women to be leaders in their communities has 
transformative economic and social benefits. The Committee 
recommendation includes $20,000,000 for women's leadership 
training programs. The Committee intends that these funds will 
support projects that promote women's political, economic, and 
social advancement in developing countries.

Country programs

    Ethiopia.--The Committee encourages the Department of State 
and USAID to support programs that promote human rights, 
political freedoms, independent media, and effective and 
inclusive governance. The Committee encourages the 
Administrator of USAID, in cooperation with other donors, to 
support programs to promote sustainable development in Ethiopia 
that will help prevent famine and desertification.

\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level and the Committee
  recommendation include funds under this heading in title VIII
  designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency
  Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $772,602,000 for 
International Disaster Assistance (IDA). Additional funds are 
provided under title VIII for OCO/GWOT. When combined with the 
funds appropriated for IDA in title VIII for OCO/GWOT, the 
amount recommended meets the request. The Committee notes that 
the $1,116,000,000 requested in the budget request under IDA 
for emergency food assistance programs was addressed in the 
fiscal year 2014 Agriculture Appropriations bill.
    This account funds humanitarian relief, rehabilitation, and 
reconstruction in countries affected by natural and man-made 
disasters, as well as support for disaster mitigation, disaster 
risk reduction, prevention, and preparedness. This includes the 
purchase of commodities, such as temporary shelter, blankets, 
and supplementary and therapeutic food; potable water; medical 
supplies; and agricultural rehabilitation. Program 
beneficiaries include disaster victims, conflict victims, and 
internally displaced persons.
    The Committee expects the reporting requirements contained 
in the joint explanatory statement accompanying the State, 
Foreign Operations, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
2010 (Public Law 111-117) on the use of funds for emergency 
food security to continue for fiscal year 2013 and directs the 
Administrator of USAID to consult with the Committees on 
Appropriations on the content of the report.

  recommendation include funds under this heading in title VIII
  designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency
  Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $43,755,000 for 
Transition Initiatives. Additional funds are provided under 
title VIII for OCO/GWOT.
    Funds provided in this account support programs targeting 
key transitions to democracy for countries in crisis and quick 
impact activities for conflict prevention or stabilization.
    The Committee recommendation continues the requirement that 
USAID submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations five 
days prior to starting a new program and maintains a provision 
which allows for the transfer of up to $15,000,000 to this 
heading if the Secretary of State determines and reports to the 
Committees on Appropriations that it is in the national 
interest. Prior consultation with the Committees on 
Appropriations is required before transferred funds may be made 
available.
    The Committee continues to direct USAID's Office of 
Transition Initiatives (OTI) to submit a report to the 
Committees on Appropriations at the end of the fiscal year 
summarizing new, ongoing, and completed country programs 
implemented by OTI in fiscal year 2014, including programs 
supported with transferred funds.
    The Committee recommendation includes a new provision 
requiring that funds made available under this heading be 
administered only by OTI. The Committee notes that authority to 
obligate funds notwithstanding any provision of law is provided 
for this account because of the nature of the programs and the 
unique capabilities within the Office of Transition 
Initiatives.

bilateral economic assistance accounts for the subsidy cost of 
loan guarantees under the Development Credit Authority program. 
The Committee recommendation includes an appropriation of 
$7,882,000 for administrative expenses.
    The Committee notes that USAID must submit an operating 
plan for funds provided under this heading to the Committees on 
Appropriations as required in section 7076 of this Act.

                         ECONOMIC SUPPORT FUND

  OMB ATB.
\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level, the fiscal year 2014
  request, and the Committee recommendation include funds under this
  heading in title VIII designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced
  Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $1,367,717,000 for 
Economic Support Fund. Additional funds are provided under 
title VIII for OCO/GWOT.
    The Committee notes that funds are requested under this 
heading to advance United States interests by helping countries 
meet political, economic, and security needs. The Committee 
expects that within this constrained budget environment, these 
funds will be allocated to priority countries that are of 
strategic importance to the United States.
    The Committee includes language in section 7031 of this 
Act, modified from the prior year, regarding direct government-
to-government assistance, which requires recipient countries to 
be governed by democratic principles or to be taking 
significant steps to strengthen democratic institutions. It 
also includes a requirement that recipient countries are 
committed to allowing civil society to operate freely. The 
provision also prohibits assistance to any agency or ministry 
that is headed or controlled by a foreign terrorist 
organization.
    Africa.--The Committee recommendation does not include 
funding requested for Sudan debt relief, but does support 
continued assistance for South Sudan. The Committee remains 
concerned about the actions of the Government of Sudan, 
including ongoing violence in Darfur, continued indiscriminate 
aerial bombardments in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile, and 
preventing the delivery of humanitarian assistance to thousands 
of displaced civilians who are without access to basic 
necessities. The Committee is also concerned by reports that 
South Sudan government forces have engaged in human rights 
violations, especially in Jonglei State. The Committee 
underscores the importance of humanitarian access for 
international aid organizations operating in these areas of 
Sudan and South Sudan to reach vulnerable civilian populations.
    Asia.--The Committee supports programs for independent 
media activities in Burma. The Committee recommendation 
includes a prohibition on direct assistance to the Government 
of the People's Republic of China from this account. The 
Committee recommendation continues assistance to support 
activities that preserve cultural traditions and promote 
sustainable development and environmental conservation in 
Tibetan communities in the Tibetan Autonomous Region and in 
other Tibetan autonomous areas in the People's Republic of 
China.
    Europe and Eurasia.--The Committee recommendation does not 
include funds for the International Fund for Ireland. The 
Committee continues to encourage efforts to strengthen 
democratic processes, accountable governance, independent 
media, judicial reform, and anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine.
  Within the funds provided under this heading, the Secretary 
of State should provide assistance for victims of the Nagorno-
Karabakh conflict at levels consistent with prior years, and 
for ongoing needs related to the conflict.
    Near East.--The Committee recommendation includes not less 
than $360,000,000 for assistance for Jordan and supports 
continued funding for strategic priorities in the Middle East, 
including for Morocco, the Near East Regional Democracy 
program, and the Middle East Regional Cooperation program, at 
levels consistent with prior years.
    The Committee recommendation includes language in section 
7042 of this Act prohibiting funds for the Government of Egypt 
under titles III and IV of this Act unless the Secretary of 
State certifies to the Committees on Appropriations that Egypt 
is upholding the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty and describing other 
requirements that must be met prior to the obligation of funds 
for Egypt. The Committee supports funds under this heading and 
under Democracy Fund for programs that support rule of law, 
human rights, good governance, and political competition. The 
Committee believes that continued support for democracy 
activists and political parties in Egypt is important and 
encourages the Department of State and USAID to work with 
experienced implementers. The Committee encourages support for 
nongovernmental organizations, including those that involve the 
participation of women, religious minorities, and youth. The 
Committee remains concerned about the protection of religious 
minorities, including Coptic Christians.
    The Committee notes the chronic underlying conditions in 
Yemen that make the population vulnerable to ongoing health and 
development challenges and urges USAID to develop a resilience 
strategy for Yemen to address such problems.
    Western Hemisphere.--The Committee recommendation supports 
continued funding for critical partners in the Western 
Hemisphere and includes $45,000,000 for Mexico and $140,000,000 
for Colombia.
    The Committee endorses the proposed use of funds in the 
request to support conflict-affected populations including 
Afro-Colombians and other indigenous communities and refugees 
that have been displaced from Colombia. The Committee 
recommends that the Secretary of State continue to work with 
the UN High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR), and other 
relevant international partners and governments to seek 
appropriate and durable solutions for Colombian refugees. 
Within the total provided for Colombia in this account, 
$7,000,000 may be transferred to the Migration and Refugee 
Assistance account to help address these concerns.
    The Committee supports the ongoing human rights programs 
and planned funding for the UN Office of the High Commissioner 
for Human Rights and the Defensoria del Pueblo, and notes the 
efforts by the Government of Colombia to provide protection for 
human rights defenders and activists, victims and land rights 
leaders, and vulnerable and minority communities.
    The Committee is encouraged by the Government of Colombia's 
emphasis on victims' restitution and land return. The Committee 
expects United States diplomacy and assistance programs to 
support the Government of Colombia in developing protection 
plans for local communities, in consultation with those 
communities, and with emphasis on strengthening local civilian 
governments.
    The Committee notes Colombia's ongoing peace negotiations 
and directs the Secretary of State to consult with Committees 
on Appropriations on any funding made available in support of a 
formal agreement, should one be concluded during fiscal year 
2014.
    The Committee recommendation includes $20,000,000 for Cuba. 
The Committee directs that these funds shall be provided 
directly to NED for programs to promote democracy and 
strengthen civil society in Cuba as authorized by section 
109(a) of the Cuban Liberty and Solidarity (LIBERTAD) Act of 
1996 and section 1705 of the Cuban Democracy Act (CDA) of 1992. 
The Committee expects NED to work with the core institutes and 
other grantees that have extensive, continuous, and current 
experience in Cuba. Assistance provided for Cuba under this 
heading shall not be used for business promotion, economic 
reform, social development, or other purposes not expressly 
authorized by section 109(a) of the LIBERTAD Act.
    The Committee is concerned about the number of Haitians 
that remain displaced and continue to suffer from health and 
development challenges since the earthquake in January, 2010. 
While the Committee recognizes the complex challenges facing 
Haiti, these conditions continue despite more than a billion 
dollars of assistance provided by the United States since the 
time of the earthquake. The Committee directs the Secretary of 
State, in consultation with the Administrator of USAID, to 
submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later 
than 30 days after enactment of this Act, and every 180 days 
thereafter until September 30, 2015, on the assistance provided 
to Haiti since 2010, including obligation and expenditure data 
disaggregated by sector, increases in costs or schedules for 
projects, overall progress of the rebuilding and development 
efforts, and the mechanisms in place for consultation and 
participation of the Haitian government, civil society, 
grassroots networks, and the Haitian diaspora.
    The Committee notes the work of the United Nations High 
Commissioner for Human Rights in Honduras and supports regional 
funding to address human rights monitoring in Honduras.
    The Committee does not provide funds requested for Mexico 
under Development Assistance and instead provides the funds 
under this heading to be used only for programs for rule of law 
and human rights, justice and security, good governance, civil 
society, education, and economic growth, including to improve 
United States-Mexico trade and investment. The Committee 
supports USAID's Mexico border development programs to address 
the root causes of violence and instability, including poverty 
and unemployment of border residents.

Global and regional programs

  Parliamentary exchanges.--The Committee intends to work to 
identify resources to support the House Democracy Partnership 
(HDP) when appointments are made to HDP during the 113th 
Congress.
    Reconciliation programs.--The Committee expects the 
Department of State and USAID to ensure that funds provided for 
reconciliation programs in the Middle East include a rigorous 
vetting and evaluation process and are consistent with United 
States foreign policy objectives in the region. The Committee 
notes that an initiative to build understanding, tolerance, and 
mutual respect among the next generation of Israeli and 
Palestinian leaders was included in the joint explanatory 
statement accompanying the State, Foreign Operations, and 
Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74) 
and expects USAID to consult with the Committees on 
Appropriations on these programs.
    Rule of law and judicial reform.--The Committee believes 
the rule of law is fundamental to promoting democracy and 
sustainable development. The Committee notes that the rule of 
law is strengthened by promoting independent judiciaries, human 
rights and women's rights, combating human trafficking and 
corruption, and increasing public accountability and access to 
justice. The Committee continues to support programs to develop 
fair and transparent judicial systems that advance the rule of 
law worldwide.
    University programs.--The Committee notes the important 
role that American educational institutions play by providing 
educational opportunities to students in the Middle East 
region. An American education broadens understanding and 
acceptance of American values and is important to United States 
efforts to counter extremism and encourage democracy and 
economic opportunity in the Middle East. These institutions 
have educated generations of leaders who are recognized 
throughout the region for their embrace of democratic 
principles and their contributions to creating more productive 
societies. The Committee supports programs through not-for-
profit educational institutions that meet standards comparable 
to those required for American accreditation that provide 
scholarships for students that demonstrate strong academic 
records and high financial need, from both public and private 
high schools.

                             DEMOCRACY FUND
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................      $114,770,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................                 0
Committee recommendation..............................       111,500,000
    Change from request...............................      +111,500,000
    Change from enacted level.........................       -3,270,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $111,500,000 for 
Democracy Fund.
    Funds included under this heading were requested under 
Development Assistance and Economic Support Fund. Of the funds 
provided, $70,500,000 shall be for the Human Rights and 
Democracy Fund of the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and 
Labor (DRL), at the Department of State; and $41,000,000 shall 
be for the Office of Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance of 
the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance 
at USAID.
    The Committee notes the technical expertise of the 
Department of State and USAID in global democracy promotion, 
including responding quickly and effectively to political 
events on the ground and creating short-term and long-term 
strategies to strengthen democracy. The Committee includes 
section 7032 of this Act, a provision on democracy programs 
that consolidates and modifies related provisions carried in 
the prior year. The Committee notes that democracy programs 
funded by this Act are not subject to prior approval by foreign 
governments and the Secretary of State must report to the 
Committees on Appropriations on steps taken to ensure 
compliance with this prohibition.

                          Department of State


                    MIGRATION AND REFUGEE ASSISTANCE
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level1,2.....................    $1,639,100,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................     1,760,960,000
Committee recommendation..............................     1,264,400,000
    Change from request...............................      -496,560,000
    Change from enacted level.........................      -374,700,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.
\2\The fiscal year 2013 enacted level and the Committee recommendation
  exclude any funds appropriated under this heading in title VIII and
  designated for Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War on Terrorism
  (OCO/GWOT) pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit
  Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $1,264,400,000 for 
Migration and Refugee Assistance (MRA). Additional funds are 
provided under title VIII for OCO/GWOT. When combined with the 
funds appropriated for Emergency Refugee and Migration 
Assistance Fund and funds appropriated for MRA in title VIII 
for OCO/GWOT, the amount recommended meets the request.
    Colombian refugees.--In addition to funds available under 
this heading, the Committee recommendation includes language in 
section 7045 that permits the transfer of funds available under 
Economic Support Fund to this account for augmenting assistance 
to nongovernmental and international organizations that provide 
assistance to Colombian refugees in neighboring countries. The 
Committee remains concerned about the unmet humanitarian needs 
of the growing population of displaced persons from Colombia. 
The Committee recommends that the Secretary of State continue 
to work with UNHCR and other relevant international partners 
and governments to seek appropriate and durable solutions for 
Colombian refugees.
    The Committee remains concerned about ongoing refugee 
crises in the Western Hemisphere, including Colombian refugees, 
and urges the Secretary of State to continue programs to 
provide urgent protection and assistance.
    Minority communities in the Middle East.--Events in the 
Middle East, from the Arab Spring and the conflict in Syria to 
the continuing transition in Iraq, have intensified the 
challenges facing minority communities, including Christian 
populations, within these areas of conflict, instability, and 
transition. The Committee urges the Secretary of State to 
continue humanitarian and resettlement assistance for members 
of these vulnerable communities, both inside and outside their 
countries of origin.
    Protection activities.--The Committee continues to support 
investments in protection activities, including the prevention 
of, and response to, gender-based violence and urges the 
Secretary of State to continue core protection activities and 
ensure that protection considerations are effectively 
integrated into humanitarian programs.
    Resettlement in Israel.--The Committee recommendation 
includes a directive that not less than $15,000,000 of the 
amounts appropriated under this heading in this Act, or prior 
Acts, for refugees from the former Soviet Union, Eastern 
Europe, and other refugees resettling in Israel, the same as 
the request and similar to language carried in prior years.
    Syrian refugees.--The Committee understands that a majority 
of Syrian refugees live outside of formal camps, which adds 
considerably to the strain on the resources of countries 
hosting them. The Committee recognizes the urgent need to 
assist in the following ways: (1) help host countries expand 
their national systems to accommodate refugee needs, such as in 
the health and education sector, (2) ensure that host countries 
can continue to deliver basic services to their own citizens, 
(3) strengthen the capacity of local authorities to respond to 
the refugee influx, and (4) maintain refugees' freedom of 
movement, right to settle in local communities, and access to 
economic opportunities. The Committee encourages the Department 
of State and USAID to, where appropriate, assist its partners 
and the affected host governments in the humanitarian response 
to the growing number of Syrians who have sought refuge in 
nearby countries and requested assistance.
    Tibetan refugees.--The Committee supports the continued 
allocation of funds to assist Tibetan refugees in Nepal and 
India at a level commensurate with prior years. The Committee 
remains concerned about the plight of Tibetans in Nepal, 
including new arrivals and the long-staying population, and 
urges the Secretary of State to press the Government of Nepal 
to reaffirm its long tradition of permitting Tibetan refugees 
to safely transit Nepal, and to respect the rights of, and 
provide legal protections to, Tibetans residing in Nepal.
    United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) 
accountability.--The Committee recommendation includes language 
in section 7049 of this Act prohibiting funds appropriated 
under this heading from being made available to UNRWA until the 
Secretary of State determines and reports to the Committees on 
Appropriations that UNRWA is:
          (1) utilizing Operations Support Officers in the West 
        Bank and Gaza to inspect UNRWA installations and report 
        any inappropriate use;
          (2) acting promptly to deal with any staff or 
        beneficiary violation of its own policies (including 
        the policies on neutrality and impartiality of 
        employees) and the legal requirements under section 
        301(c) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961;
          (3) taking necessary and appropriate measures to 
        ensure it is operating in compliance with the 
        conditions of section 301(c) of the Foreign Assistance 
        Act of 1961 and continuing regular reporting to the 
        Department of State on actions it has taken to ensure 
        conformance with such conditions;
          (4) taking steps to improve the transparency of all 
        educational materials currently in use in UNRWA-
        administered schools;
          (5) using curriculum materials in UNRWA-supported 
        schools and summer camps designed to promote tolerance, 
        non-violent conflict resolution, and human rights;
          (6) not engaging in operations with financial 
        institutions or related entities in violation of 
        relevant United States law, enhancing its transparency 
        and financial due diligence, and working to diversify 
        its banking operations in the region; and
          (7) in compliance with the United Nations Board of 
        Auditors' biennial audit requirements and implementing 
        in a timely fashion the Board's recommendations.
    The Committee urges the Department of State to continue its 
work with UNRWA and host governments to ensure that educational 
materials used in UNRWA schools are free of inflammatory and 
inaccurate information. The Committee is concerned about 
reports of the glorification of terrorists and anti-Semitic 
doctrine in host country textbooks. The Committee directs the 
Department of State to report to the Committees on 
Appropriations on the steps taken by UNRWA to mitigate the use 
and influence of any such deleterious material and provide 
recommendations for improving transparency and accuracy of host 
country textbooks.

     UNITED STATES EMERGENCY REFUGEE AND MIGRATION ASSISTANCE FUND
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................       $27,200,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................       250,000,000
Committee recommendation..............................        25,832,000
    Change from request...............................      -224,168,000
    Change from enacted level.........................       -1,368,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $25,832,000 for 
United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund.
    This account serves as a contingency fund from which the 
President can draw in order to respond to urgent and 
unanticipated humanitarian crises. The recommendation does not 
include the significant increase proposed in the request for 
this contingency account. The Committee instead has included 
the requested funds under Migration and Refugee Assistance.

                          Independent Agencies


                              PEACE CORPS
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................      $375,000,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................       378,800,000
Committee recommendation..............................       356,135,000
    Change from request...............................       -22,665,000
    Change from enacted level.........................      -18,865,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $356,135,000 for 
Peace Corps.
    The Committee recommendation for Peace Corps will provide 
support for the positive contributions of Americans serving as 
volunteers throughout the world, including volunteer safety and 
security operations. The Committee recommendation maintains the 
ban on use of funds for abortion, and requires a spend plan 
pursuant to section 7076 of this Act.
    The Committee continues the requirement that Peace Corps 
consult with and notify the Committees on Appropriations prior 
to any decisions to open, close, significantly reduce, or 
suspend an office or country program. The Committee directs the 
Director of the Peace Corps to submit a report to the 
Committees on Appropriations, not later than 30 days after the 
end of fiscal year 2014, listing all decisions made during the 
fiscal year to change the status of offices or country programs 
and the justifications for such decisions.

                    MILLENNIUM CHALLENGE CORPORATION
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................      $898,200,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................       898,200,000
Committee recommendation..............................       701,900,000
    Change from request...............................      -196,300,000
    Change from enacted level.........................     -196,300,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $701,900,000 for the 
Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). The Committee 
recommendation includes a limitation of $97,000,000 for 
administrative expenses and not more than $100,000 may be for 
representational expenses.
    Due to the Committee's restricted budget allocation, the 
Committee is unable to provide full funding for MCC and notes 
the recommendation is made without prejudice. The Committee 
continues to strongly support the mission of the MCC.
    The Committee includes prior year language that requires 
the MCC to only enter into compacts for which it has complete 
funding available from existing appropriations and notify the 
Committees on Appropriations prior to signing any new country 
compact, terminating or suspending any country compact or 
threshold country program, or commencing negotiations for any 
new compact. MCC is directed to consult with the Committees on 
Appropriations prior to entering into compacts using funds 
appropriated under this Act.
    Corruption.--The Committee remains concerned about weak 
judicial systems and corruption in MCC compact countries, which 
in some cases prevents private sector contracts from being 
enforced. The Committee urges the MCC to review its practices 
and procedures to monitor and address such weaknesses in MCC 
compact countries, particularly instances where MCC compact 
countries fail to enforce arbitrations from international 
bodies of which they are members. The Committee directs the MCC 
to submit a report to the Committees of Appropriations, not 
later than 90 days after enactment of this Act, on the 
following: (1) an assessment of each compact country's current 
practices to combat corruption, including procedures to improve 
any weaknesses in its judicial systems, (2) recommendations for 
improvements in MCC compacts and policies to affect positive 
changes in such practices and procedures, (3) an assessment of 
barriers to foreign direct investment and economic growth to 
which such weaknesses lend, and (4) updated recommendations for 
improvements in the MCC's ability to identify, track, and 
inhibit corruption in compact countries. This report shall 
include all countries for which compacts are being developed or 
were signed as of January 1, 2011.
    Investment funds.--The Committee remains concerned about 
the use of appropriated funds to establish private equity 
funds, investment funds, and development funds. As in prior 
years, the Committee directs the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) 
of the MCC to require that any such funds be audited annually 
in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards by 
independent certified public accountants.
    MCC mandate.--The Committee expects that the mandate of the 
MCC to increase economic growth and reduce poverty will not be 
diluted in new compacts that are being negotiated. The 
Committee expects that projects funded with MCC compact funds 
will display compelling economic rates of return (ERR). 
Therefore, the Committee directs the CEO of the MCC to include 
the corresponding ERR estimated for each line item funded in 
the compact in the congressional notifications for new 
compacts.
    Reporting requirements.--In the fiscal year 2014 operating 
plan to be provided as required by section 7076 of this Act, 
the CEO of the MCC is directed to include the following on a 
country-by-country basis on the funds appropriated under this 
heading: the status of negotiations and the approximate range 
of value of proposed compacts; a summary of compacts in 
implementation, including the projected expenditure and 
disbursement of compact funds during fiscal year 2014 and 
subsequent fiscal years as determined by the country compact; a 
summary of threshold country programs in implementation, 
including the approximate range of value of the threshold 
country agreements; major programmatic changes to existing

compacts approved to date, and include information on the level 
of matching assistance provided by the country as part of the 
compact agreement and the status of country support and 
continuation of first compact projects funded by MCC. 
Additionally, the Committee directs that such information shall 
be included for all future congressional notifications that 
provide funds for second compacts.

              TITLE IV--INTERNATIONAL SECURITY ASSISTANCE


                          Department of State


          INTERNATIONAL NARCOTICS CONTROL AND LAW ENFORCEMENT
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level1,2.....................    $1,061,100,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................     1,129,727,000
Committee recommendation..............................       919,153,000
    Change from request...............................      -210,574,000
    Change from enacted level.........................     -141,947,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.
\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level, the fiscal year 2014
  request, and the Committee recommendation include funds under this
  heading in title VIII designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced
  Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $919,153,000 for 
International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement (INCLE). 
Additional funds are provided under title VIII for OCO/GWOT. 
When combined with funds appropriated in title VIII for OCO/
GWOT, the amount recommended meets the request.
    The Committee recommendation modifies language carried in 
the prior year that requires the Secretary of State to provide 
to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 45 days 
after enactment of this Act, and prior to the initial 
obligation of program and country funds, a report on the 
proposed uses of all funds on a program and country-by-country 
basis for each proposed program, project, or activity. The 
Committee notes that this report does not meet the notification 
requirements under section 7015 of this Act, which requires 15-
day advance notice of programs not justified or in excess of 
the budget justification materials provided to Congress. 
However, this report should serve as a baseline spend plan for 
the fiscal year. The Committee expects the report to contain at 
least the level of detail provided in the fiscal year 2010 
INCLE 45-day country-by-country report.
    The Committee notes that under extenuating circumstances, 
the Secretary of State must exercise authority that allows 
funds to be spent ``notwithstanding any other provision of 
law'' per section 481(a)(4) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 
1961. While the Committee understands the need for the 
Secretary of State to exercise this authority, the Committee 
encourages its judicious use and directs the Secretary of State 
to notify the Committees on Appropriations in writing within 
five days each time such authority is used, and provide a 
justification for such action. The Committee notes that this 
requirement is in addition to the last proviso of section 
7015(c) of this Act.

Global programs

    Demand reduction.--The Committee supports the budget 
request for demand reduction programs and expects that these 
funds will continue to provide positive outcomes for neglected 
populations, such as women and children, and mobilize community 
capacity to deal with drugs and gangs in countries around the 
world.
    Human rights.--The Committee expects the Department of 
State to continue to ensure that training provided through 
funds made available under this heading include a human rights 
component and that all existing United States laws are applied.
    Judicial reform.--The Committee notes that fair and 
transparent judicial systems are critical components to improve 
the rule of law and the administration of justice particularly 
in countries confronting organized crime and drug trafficking. 
The Committee recommendation includes $3,000,000 to support 
programs that strengthen and promote independent and effective 
judiciaries to advance the rule of law worldwide and that such 
programs shall be awarded on a competitive basis.
    Trafficking in persons.--The Committee recommendation 
supports the budget request for activities to prevent 
trafficking in persons. The Committee provides further 
direction on these programs in the report under section 7062 of 
this Act.
    Wildlife poaching and trafficking.--The Committee supports 
the expansion of ongoing and proposed law enforcement and 
judicial capacity programs that address the capability of 
governments to combat wildlife poaching and trafficking, 
including border security, interdiction and investigation, and 
prosecutorial capacity. The Committee directs $15,000,000 be 
made available for these purposes. The Committee expects the 
Department of State to continue to utilize and leverage the 
expertise of other United States agencies in addressing these 
complex challenges, including the United States Fish and 
Wildlife Service (USFWS). The Committee provides further 
direction on these programs in this report under section 7062 
of this Act.

Country and regional programs

    Bolivia.--The Committee notes that the INCLE country 
program in Bolivia is closing out and therefore the Committee 
recommendation does not include the requested funds.
    Colombia.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$149,000,000 which is the same as the request, for rule of law, 
interdiction, and eradication activities in Colombia. The 
Committee continues to recognize the strategic importance of 
Colombia, and acknowledges the successes made and the 
measurable improvements achieved in the everyday lives of the 
Colombian people that have resulted over the last decade.
    In addition to funds described in the previous paragraph, 
the Committee notes that funds are provided under the Western 
Hemisphere Regional program, to support the efforts of the 
Government of Colombia to provide training and technical 
assistance to partners in the region and around the world. The 
Committee encourages the Department of State to continue to 
work with the Government of Colombia to leverage these 
activities to best address counternarcotics and law enforcement 
challenges worldwide.
    The Committee continues to support aerial eradication 
efforts in Colombia and intends that the Department of State 
will continue its current practices to: (1) investigate and 
evaluate complaints to health or licit crops and provide fair 
compensation for meritorious claims; (2) support programs that 
provide alternative sources of income for small-acreage growers 
and communities whose illicit crops are targeted in aerial 
eradication programs; and (3) only conduct aerial eradication 
programs in national parks and reserves if there are no other 
effective alternatives and efforts, and if such programs are 
done in a manner consistent with Colombian law.
    The Committee commends the Government of Colombia for its 
efforts to bring the government into ungoverned territories and 
supports programs that combine military security and civilian 
development strategies. The Committee views this as an 
innovative approach, and notes that success hinges on the full 
participation of civilian government institutions, inter-agency 
coordination, strict respect for human rights, and the 
inclusion of local populations.
    The Committee encourages a continued focus on justice and 
rule of law activities, including efforts to address human 
rights abuses within the Colombian Armed Forces, and provides 
not less than the requested amount for these activities. The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit a report to 
the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 45 days after 
the enactment of this Act, on the proposed uses of funding for 
Colombia's judicial agencies. The report should include how 
assistance is designed to reduce impunity and protect due 
process, and include any associated benchmarks that have been 
established for the offices of the Colombian Attorney General, 
Inspector General, and Ombudsman. The Committee encourages the 
Department of State to support the Attorney General's Human 
Rights Unit to strengthen the investigative capacity to address 
sexual violence and to establish a national registry of sexual 
violence cases.
    In section 7045 of this Act, the Committee recommendation 
includes language directing the Secretary of State to submit a 
report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 60 
days after enactment of this Act, on the efforts the Colombian 
Armed Forces are taking to address human rights. The report 
shall include steps taken to: (1) suspend members who have been 
credibly alleged to have violated human rights, or to have 
aided, abetted or benefitted from paramilitary organizations or 
other illegal armed groups; (2) promptly refer these cases to 
civilian jurisdiction; (3) cooperate fully with civilian 
prosecutors and judicial authorities; (4) sever links with and 
dismantle paramilitary organizations or other illegal armed 
groups; (5) respect the rights of human rights defenders, 
journalists, trade unionists, and other social activists, and 
the rights and territory of indigenous and Afro-Colombian 
communities; and (6) implement procedures to distinguish 
between civilians and combatants in their operations. The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to consult with 
Colombian and international human rights organizations not less 
than 30 days prior to submitting this report.
    Guatemala.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$5,000,000 for the International Commission against Impunity in 
Guatemala (CICIG). The Committee urges the Department of State 
to continue to cooperate with the CICIG and encourages all 
parties in Guatemala to fully comply with the CICIG's 
recommendations.
    Mexico.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$148,131,000, which is the same as the fiscal year 2014 request 
for Mexico, to combat organized crime and drug-trafficking. The 
Committee intends that the resources provided will assist the 
Government of Mexico to strengthen civilian and judicial 
institutions, anti-corruption efforts, and rule of law 
activities at the federal, state, and local levels to foster 
long-term reform objectives.
    The Committee supports close and sustained coordination in 
law enforcement efforts and intelligence-sharing between the 
United States and Mexico to combat the activities of drug 
trafficking organizations along our southern border. The 
Committee continues to direct the Department of State to work 
with all appropriate federal, state, and local entities to 
share best practices to address violence associated with drug 
trafficking, gun-running, illegal alien smuggling, violence, 
and kidnapping along and across the international border 
between the United States and Mexico.
    The Committee expects that equipment and training funded in 
this Act and in prior appropriations will be expedited to 
enhance the ability of federal, state, and local entities to 
conduct law enforcement, counternarcotics, border control, and 
counterterrorism operations throughout Mexico, particularly 
where drug trafficking organizations are challenging the 
Mexican authorities for control of major cities, including 
those on the United States-Mexico border. The Committee 
supports funding to provide nonintrusive inspection equipment 
and border improvements, including to enhance communications 
interoperability. The Committee continues to be concerned with 
the delivery of assistance to Mexico and directs the Department 
of State, in consultation with other relevant agencies, to 
provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later 
than 45 days after enactment of this Act, describing the 
implementation of assistance for Mexico since fiscal year 2008 
and to use all appropriate means necessary to ensure the prompt 
delivery of equipment and training. The Committee further 
directs that such report should include an assessment of the 
transnational criminal organizations operating in Mexico, 
including an assessment of the income-generating activities of 
these organizations and recommendations on how to combat the 
operations, financial networks, and money laundering techniques 
of such organizations. This report, or a portion thereof, may 
be submitted in classified form if necessary.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit a 
report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 60 
days after enactment of this Act, on the efforts of the 
Government of Mexico to investigate and prosecute in the 
civilian justice system, in accordance with Mexican and 
international law, military and police personnel who are 
credibly alleged to have violated human rights; to enforce 
prohibitions on the use of testimony obtained through torture; 
and the efforts of the Mexican military and police to cooperate 
with civilian judicial authorities in such cases. The Committee 
supports the ongoing efforts for human rights monitoring and 
reporting, including through the United Nations High 
Commissioner for Human Rights in Mexico.

Western Hemisphere Regional

    Central America Regional Security Initiative (CARSI).--The 
Committee supports efforts to combat the corrosive effects of 
drug trafficking, organized crime, and gangs in Central America 
and recommends the request level for these purposes. CARSI 
funding will help countries enhance their law enforcement 
operations and reform the justice sector, thereby making them 
key partners in the fight against transnational criminal 
organizations. The Committee believes that cooperation within 
the region is critical to ensure the security of these 
countries and the United States.
    Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI).--The Committee 
also supports CBSI in order to combat organized crime and drug-
related violence and recommends the request level for these 
purposes. The Committee believes that integration of similar 
programs in Mexico, Colombia, and the countries of Central 
America will contribute to enhanced security in the region and 
the United States.
    Report.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State, in 
coordination with the Administrator of USAID, to provide to the 
Committees on Appropriations, not later than 45 days after 
enactment of this Act, a report on the uses of all funds 
provided under this and any other heading for CBSI and CARSI on 
a country-by-country basis for each program, project, and 
activity for fiscal years 2010 through 2013. The Committee 
further directs the report be updated not later than October 
15, 2014, for funds made available in fiscal year 2014.

    NONPROLIFERATION, ANTI-TERRORISM, DEMINING AND RELATED PROGRAMS
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level1,2.....................      $590,113,000

    Change from request...............................      -114,592,000
    Change from enacted level.........................      -88,580,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.
\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level and the Committee
  recommendation includes funds under this heading in title VIII
  designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency
  Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $501,533,000 for 
Nonproliferation, Anti-Terrorism, Demining and Related Programs 
(NADR). Additional funds are provided under title VIII for OCO/
GWOT. When combined with funds appropriated in title VIII for 
OCO/GWOT, the amount recommended meets the request.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to notify the 
Committees on Appropriations in writing within five 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. The Committee notes that this requirement is 
in addition to the last proviso of section 7015(c).
    The Committee continues authority from prior years to 
provide voluntary contributions to certain organizations.
    The Committee notes that language carried in section 7076 
of this Act requires the submission of a spend plan for certain 
countries and programs not later than 30 days after enactment 
of this Act. The Committee requests that the spend plan 
integrate the funds appropriated under this heading and in 
title VIII of this Act for OCO/GWOT where appropriate, and the 
OCO/GWOT amounts should be separately identified in the 
integrated plan.
    The Committee recommendation does not include language 
carried in the prior year regarding public-private partnerships 
because the Committee understands that the State Department has 
not relied on this authority in recent years.
    Counterterrorism financing.--The Committee notes that 
strengthening banking services is an important component of a 
comprehensive approach to counter terrorist financing and 
continues to support efforts of the Departments of State and 
other Federal agencies in assisting foreign countries to 
detect, disrupt, and dismantle terrorist financial networks.
    Demining and mine victim assistance.--The Committee 
recognizes the importance of mine removal, mine victim 
assistance, and the proper storage and disposition of small 
arms/light weapons and notes the significant contributions made 
to date in helping the countries of southeastern Europe to 
become mine-safe. The Committee further encourages the 
Department of State to expand its work to other regions.
    IAEA.--The Committee notes the efforts of the IAEA on 
international safeguards, nuclear safety, and nuclear security. 
The Committee encourages the Department of State to collaborate 
with the IAEA to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass 
destruction and terrorism, including by reviewing 
recommendations made by the Congressional Commission on the 
Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and 
Terrorism. The Committee directs the Department of State to 
submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later 
than 180 days after enactment of this Act, on any collaborative 
activities and any future or planned actions consistent with 
the Congressional Commission's findings.
    Nonproliferation and Disarmament Fund (NDF).--The Committee 
notes the increased need for NDF programs and does not include 
a limitation on funding that was carried in prior years. The 
Committee continues prior year language requiring prior 
consultation on all NDF activities. The Committee emphasizes 
that nonproliferation programs of the Department of State and 
other Federal agencies are critical to protect the United 
States, and the Committee urges close coordination among all 
agencies involved in nonproliferation activities.
    Middle East Nuclear Free Zone.--The Committee notes with 
great concern Iran's continued pursuit of a nuclear weapons 
capability and views such efforts as a serious threat to the 
region. The Committee understands that preparatory steps are 
underway for a regional conference to discuss a Middle East 
zone free of weapons of mass destruction and systems for their 
delivery, as referenced in the 2010 Non-Proliferation Treaty 
Review Conference final document. The Committee expects the 
Administration to continue to insist on its publicly stated 
policies for the establishment of such a conference.
    Terrorist Interdiction Program.--The Committee supports the 
Terrorist Interdiction Program to allow immigration and border 
control officials in foreign countries to identify suspect 
persons.
    Unexploded ordnance destruction.--The Committee supports 
continued efforts related to unexploded ordnance destruction, 
particularly in Laos.
    The Department of State is directed to consult with the 
Committees on Appropriations prior to using the authority of 
paragraph (b)(2) in section 7054.

                        PEACEKEEPING OPERATIONS
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level1,2.....................      $302,818,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................       347,000,000
Committee recommendation..............................       285,715,000
    Change from request...............................       -61,285,000
    Change from enacted level.........................      -17,103,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.
\2\In addition, the fiscal year 2013 enacted level and the Committee
  recommendation include funds under this heading in title VIII
  designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency
  Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $285,715,000 for 
Peacekeeping Operations. The Committee continues to provide 
funding for the UN Support Office for the African Union Mission 
in Somalia under this heading, instead of under Contributions 
for International Peacekeeping Activities. Additional funds are 
provided under title VIII for OCO/GWOT.
    The Committee notes that section 7015(c) of this Act 
requires that any notification to obligate funds 
notwithstanding any provision of law shall include a 
justification for the use of such authority. The Committee 
expects the Secretary of State to identify upon which authority 
the Department is relying.
    Africa.--The Committee supports the ongoing activities 
within the Africa Regional program, including efforts to 
address and stabilize regional crises, combat terrorism, and 
enhance maritime security. The Committee continues to support 
efforts to assist security forces to counter the Lord's 
Resistance Army (LRA) and includes further requirements on 
these efforts under section 7043 of this Act. In recognizing 
the important role stability and good governance play in 
countering terrorism, the Committee directs the Secretary of 
State to submit a report on how the funding provided under this 
heading impacts the rule of law and human rights in each 
recipient country.
    Child soldiers.--The Committee recommendation includes 
language that funds should not be used to support military 
training or operations that include child soldiers.
    Near East.--The Committee recommendation includes up to 
$34,000,000 for the Multinational Force and Observers Mission 
in the Sinai. The Committee notes the increasingly challenging 
security environment in the Sinai and supports providing 
additional resources to address force protection enhancements 
during fiscal year 2014.
    Police.--The Committee does not include the request under 
this heading for limited notwithstanding of section 660 of the 
Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 for capacity building efforts of 
formed police units/gendarmes to participate in peacekeeping 
operations. The Committee notes that funds are requested for 
similar purposes under International Narcotics Control and Law 
Enforcement.
    Somalia.--The Committee recommendation includes language 
allowing funds under this heading in titles IV and VIII to be 
used to pay assessed expenses of the UN Support Office for the 
African Union Mission in Somalia.

                  Funds Appropriated to the President


             INTERNATIONAL MILITARY EDUCATION AND TRAINING
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................      $105,788,000
Fiscal year 2014 request..............................       105,573,000
Committee recommendation..............................       105,573,000
    Change from request...............................                 0
    Change from enacted level.........................         -215,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $105,573,000 for 
International Military Education and Training (IMET).
    The Committee notes that IMET and Expanded IMET (e-IMET) 
programs are a valuable part of United States security 
assistance. The Committee recognizes that in addition to 
providing professional training and education, IMET also 
exposes foreign students to American democratic values, 
particularly respect for civilian control of the military and 
the government, and for internationally recognized standards of 
individual and human rights. IMET and e-IMET serve as effective 
tools to strengthen military alliances and international 
coalitions critical to United States national security, 
especially where there is a significant security cooperation 
commitment.
    Burma.--The Committee notes there is no funding requested 
for assistance for Burma under this heading.
    Child soldiers.--The Committee notes that no funds should 
be provided for countries in contravention of the Child 
Soldiers Prevention Act (Public Law 110-457) during fiscal year 
2014.
    Country-by-country report.--The Committee recommendation 
does not include prior year language requiring a detailed 
description of proposed activities for each country funded in 
this account. However, the Committee directs the Secretary of 
State to submit a detailed report to the Committees on 
Appropriations, not later than September 30, 2014, on the uses 
of assistance on a country-by-country basis for fiscal year 
2014. The regular notification procedures of the Committees on 
Appropriations remain in effect, requiring that the Committee 
be notified 15 days in advance of obligation for any funds not 
justified, or in excess of amounts justified, in the 
congressional budget justification.
    The Gambia.--The Committee notes ongoing human rights 
concerns in The Gambia and directs the Secretary of State to 
consult with the Committees on Appropriations prior to 
obligating funds for The Gambia.

  heading in title VIII designated OCO/GWOT pursuant to the Balanced
  Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

    The Committee recommendation includes $5,096,059,000 for 
Foreign Military Financing Program (FMF). Additional funds are 
provided under title VIII for OCO/GWOT.
    The Committee recognizes that FMF is a key component of 
building partner nation capacity and helping allies defend 
themselves. FMF provides grants for the acquisition of United 
States defense equipment, services, and training. The Committee 
notes that such assistance enables nations to improve defensive 
capabilities and fosters bilateral military relationships with 
the United States and interoperability with United States 
forces.
    The Committee recommendation continues prior year language 
allowing the Secretary of State the ability to expedite the 
procurement of defense articles or services for foreign 
security forces, following consultation with, and notification 
of, the Committees on Appropriations. The Committee notes the 
limited use of this authority for the Caribbean Basin Security 
Initiative and encourages using the authority for African 
countries to address the wildlife poaching crisis.
    Bahrain.--The Committee notes the importance of Bahrain to 
the United States regional security strategy. The Committee 
expects the Secretary of State to report to the Committees on 
Appropriations, not later than 60 days after enactment of this 
Act, on the steps taken by the Government of Bahrain to protect 
freedom of expression and association, and due process of law.
    Burma.--The Committee notes there is no funding requested 
for assistance for Burma under this heading.
    Child soldiers.--The Committee notes that no funds should 
be provided for countries in contravention of the Child 
Soldiers Prevention Act during fiscal year 2014 (Public Law 
110-457).
    Colombia.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$28,500,000 for assistance for Colombia and supports funds 
being used for maritime interdiction and riverine operations.
    Egypt.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$1,300,000,000 in assistance for Egypt, which is the same as 
the request. The Committee recognizes that continued military-
to-military cooperation between the United States and Egypt is 
critical. The Committee notes, however, that changes within 
Egypt since January, 2011 necessitate additional oversight of 
these funds by the Congress. For that reason, the Committee 
includes requirements in section 7042 of this Act that must be 
met prior to the obligation of funds for Egypt.
    Guatemala.--The Committee supports the budget request for 
Guatemala and notes that no funds are requested for the 
Guatemalan Army, except for support for the Army Corps of 
Engineers and for e-IMET courses. The Committee expects that if 
the decision is made to provide assistance to the Guatemalan 
Army during fiscal year 2014 other than in the manner 
previously justified to the Congress, a notification will be 
submitted pursuant to section 7015 of this Act. The Committee 
further expects that any such notification will be accompanied 
by a detailed justification describing steps made to address 
the issues described under this heading in the joint 
explanatory statement accompanying the Department of State, 
Foreign Operations, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
2012 (Public Law 112-74).
    Honduras.--The Committee recommendation includes language 
in section 7045 of this Act, modified from the prior year, 
withholding funds for Honduras until certain conditions are 
met.
    Iraq.--The Committee notes funds may be made available 
under title VIII of this Act for assistance to Iraq.
    The Committee is concerned about reports that Iraq is 
contributing to the prolonged conflict in Syria by granting 
access to Iraqi airspace for Russian and Iranian cargo planes 
destined for Syria. The Committee recommendation includes a new 
requirement in section 7042 of this Act, that assistance for 
the Government of Iraq should only be made available if such 
government is implementing policies to support international 
efforts to promote regional stability, including in Syria.
    Israel.--The Committee recommendation provides 
$3,100,000,000 in grants for military assistance to Israel, 
which is the same as the request. The Committee notes that of 
the funds provided for assistance for Israel, not less than 
$815,300,000 is available for offshore procurement of military 
equipment. The Committee continues prior year language that 
funds shall be made available within 30 days of enactment of 
this Act.
    The Committee notes that the funding provided supports the 
$30,000,000,000 ten-year MOU signed on August 16, 2007, between 
the Department of State and Israel's Ministry of Foreign 
Affairs, which established the framework for United States 
military assistance to Israel and calls for $3,100,000,000 in 
fiscal year 2014. The continued funding of the MOU reflects the 
unshakable commitment of the Congress to Israel's security and 
helps Israel maintain its technological edge in light of the 
increased threats it faces in the region. The Committee 
recognizes that the United States-Israel partnership is 
integral to United States national security interests and 
supports this framework agreement as a continuation of a 
valuable strategic relationship.
    Jordan.--The Committee recommendation includes not less 
than $300,000,000 for assistance for Jordan. The Committee 
notes that the Kingdom of Jordan continues to play a critical 
role in advancing peace and stability in the region.
    Lebanon.--The Committee recommendation includes language in 
section 7042 of this Act requiring that certain conditions be 
met prior to the obligation of funds for Lebanon. The Committee 
notes that in addition to placing conditions on assistance, 
language in section 7042 requires: (1) a detailed spend plan, 
(2) notifications to include specific reference to lethal 
military equipment; and (3) a report on actions taken to ensure 
that equipment provided to the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) is 
used only for intended purposes. The Committee intends that 
assistance provided to the LAF will not be used against Israel, 
and such assistance will not affect Israel's qualitative 
military edge in the region. The Committee further directs the 
Secretary of State to submit a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations, not later than 90 days after enactment of this 
Act, in classified form if necessary, on the performance of the 
LAF, including an assessment of the operational capabilities of 
such forces and how the training, curriculum, and equipment 
provided by the United States contributes to those 
capabilities.
    Libya.--The Committee recommendation includes language in 
section 7042 of this Act requiring that certain conditions be 
met prior to the obligation of funds for Libya. In addition, 
all funds for Libya are subject to the regular notification 
procedures of the Committees on Appropriations pursuant to 
section 7015 of this Act.
    Mexico.--The Committee recommendation includes not less 
than $7,000,000 for assistance for Mexico, which is the same as 
the request.
    Military assistance and sales.--The Committee remains 
concerned about the military modernization of the People's 
Republic of China (PRC) and the increasing frequency of 
aggressive claims in territorial disputes, including on the 
seas and in cyberspace. In response, regional neighbors are 
reviewing defense postures and updating their military 
hardware. The Committee encourages the Administration to 
continue to engage with allies in the region, such as Taiwan, 
the Philippines, South Korea, and Japan, on the political, 
economic, and military implications of the strategic rise of 
the PRC, including through military assistance and sales 
programs.
    Morocco.--The Committee supports not less than $7,000,000 
for Morocco, which is the same as the request.
    Oman.--The Committee supports not less than $8,000,000 for 
Oman, which is the same as the request.
    Pakistan.--The Committee recommendation includes language 
in section 7046 of this Act requiring that certain conditions 
be met prior to the obligation of assistance for Pakistan. 
Funds may be made available under title VIII of this Act for 
assistance to Pakistan.
    Philippines.--The Committee supports increased assistance 
for the Philippines to further enhance the strategic 
relationship between the United States and the Philippines, 
including the pursuit of mutual interests such as freedom of 
navigation and regional cooperation on maritime security.
    Sri Lanka.--Prior to the obligation of funds for Sri Lanka, 
the Secretary of State shall consult with the Committees on 
Appropriations on steps taken by the Government of Sri Lanka to 
address concerns raised in section 7046(d) of the Department of 
State, Foreign Operations, and Related Agencies Appropriations 
Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74).
    Yemen.--The Committee recommendation includes language in 
section 7042 of this Act requiring that certain conditions be 
met prior to the obligation of assistance to Yemen.
    Western Hemisphere Regional.--The Committee continues to 
support assistance for the countries in the Western Hemisphere 
to address counternarcotics and security priorities in the 
region.

Concerns about the World Bank Group

    Budget support.--The Committee continues to be concerned 
with the increased use of budget support, or ``Development 
Policy Loans'' in World Bank lending. The Committee directs the 
Secretary of the Treasury to keep the Committee updated on 
efforts to lessen the use of budget support to its historical 
levels of under 30 percent.
    Procurement review.--The Committee is concerned about the 
lack of information available on the World Bank's review of its 
operational procurement policy and procedures. The Committee 
directs the Secretary of the Treasury to report to the 
Committees on Appropriations, not later than 30 days after 
enactment of this Act, on the status of the procurement review, 
including the potential impact of any pending recommendations.
    World Bank Doing Business Report.--The World Bank's Doing 
Business Report has been measuring the business climate in all 
the world's countries for the last ten years, producing one 
ranking reflecting the ease of starting a new business, 
registering property, accessing credit, and enforcing 
contracts. The Committee values this unified global ranking and 
directs the Secretary of the Treasury to advocate for its 
continuation in the World Bank's Doing Business Report.
    Safeguards review.--The Committee notes the World Bank's 
review of its safeguard policies and directs the Secretary of 
the Treasury to report to the Committees on Appropriations, not 
later than 30 days after enactment of this Act, on the status 
of the safeguards review, including the potential impact of any 
pending recommendations.

North American Development Bank (NADBank)

    The Committee is aware that the NADBank expanded the 
eligible portfolio of loans that it can undertake in December 
2011. As part of this change, the NADBank created the Community 
Action Plan, which will provide small grants to communities 
along the United States-Mexico border. The Committee directs 
the Secretary of the Treasury to provide a report to the 
Committees on Appropriations, not later than 60 days after 
enactment of this Act, detailing all grants made by the NADBank 
under this new facility, the level of retained earnings or 
other resources used to support the program, and new loans made 
under the expanded eligibility criteria for calendar year 2012 
and 2013.

    The Committee recommendation includes $5,100,000 for the 
Export-Import Bank of the United States (Export-Import Bank) 
Inspector General.
    The Committee directs the Office of Inspector General to 
provide to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 45 
days after enactment of this Act, a spend plan and a summary of 
the oversight work that will be undertaken during the fiscal 
year.

                         SUBSIDY APPROPRIATION
 Fiscal year 2013 enacted level\1\.....................       $58,000,000

    Change from enacted level.........................      +10,500,000\1\FY13 enacted level does not include the 251A sequester or Sec. 3004
  OMB ATB.

    The Committee recommendation includes $100,400,000 for 
Export-Import Bank Administrative Expenses.
    The Committee recommendation includes $10,500,000, as 
requested, for the costs assigned to the Export-Import Bank by 
the General Services Administration for renovation of the 
headquarters building. The Committee notes that such funds are 
made available for two years, not until expended as requested, 
and are subject to notification 15 days prior to obligation. 
The Committee is concerned that this project was initially 
funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and 
funds were not set aside for move-in costs. The Committee has 
prioritized this funding during a time of fiscal constraint 
because of the important mission of the Export-Import Bank to 
support United States exports and jobs.

                     TITLE VII--GENERAL PROVISIONS

    The Committee recommends eleven of the general provisions 
carried in the fiscal year 2012 Act, as modified by the fiscal 
year 2013 continuing resolution, be deleted. These provisions 
(sections 7006, 7032, 7042, 7065, 7074, 7076, 7077, 7081, 7083, 
7084, and 7085) are either addressed elsewhere in permanent 
law, have been considered, or are under consideration, by the 
appropriate authorizing committee, or are no longer necessary.
    The Committee recommends the following new and revised 
provisions:
    Sec. 7002, ``Unobligated Balances Report'', is modified to 
include a new requirement that the report be disaggregated by 
fiscal year.
    Sec. 7004, ``Embassy Construction'', is modified by 
deleting subsection (e) and moving subsection (f) to section 
7006.
    Sec. 7006, ``Limitation on the New London Embassy'', is a 
new provision, similar to section 7004(f) in the fiscal year 
2012 Act, which prohibits appropriated funds from being made 
available for site acquisition and mitigation, planning, 
design, or construction of the New London Embassy and continues 
a reporting requirement on the ongoing costs of the project.
    Sec. 7010, ``Reporting Requirement'', is modified to 
include funds made available in this and prior acts.
    Sec. 7015, ``Notification Requirements'', is modified by 
applying subsections (a) and (b) to funds made available in 
title II; in subsection (c) by modifying requirements for 
reprogramming notifications; and in (f) deleting Colombia, 
Kazakhstan, Nepal, and Mexico and adding Bolivia, Ecuador, 
Egypt, Lebanon, Nicaragua, Tunisia, and Venezuela. The 
Committee notes that all notification requirements apply to 
funds appropriated in title VIII for OCO/GWOT.
    Sec. 7019, ``Allocations'', is modified by expanding the 
application of subsection (a).
    Sec. 7020, ``Prohibition of Payment of Certain Expenses'' 
is modified to require that domestic and overseas 
representation and entertainment expenses meet a number of 
criteria.
    Sec. 7028, ``Impact on Jobs in the United States'', is 
modified by adding new paragraphs (3) and (4) relating to the 
outsourcing of domestic jobs overseas.
    Sec. 7029, ``International Financial Institutions'', is 
modified by expanding the application of subsection (a) to 
include funds made available other than by direct 
appropriations; and including a new subsection (d) that permits 
transfers from funds made available in title III under Economic 
Support Fund and Development Assistance for payments to the 
International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), 
the African Development Bank, the Inter-American Development 
Bank, and the Asian Development Bank for the United States 
share of the paid-in portion of the increases in capital stock; 
for payment to the IBRD as a trustee for the Global Environment 
Facility; for payment to the Global Agriculture and Food 
Security Program; for payment to the Enterprise for the 
Americas Multilateral Investment Fund; and for payment to the 
International Fund for Agricultural Development.
    Sec. 7031, ``Financial Management and Budget 
Transparency'', is modified in (a) to include new certification 
requirements for the provision of direct government-to-
government assistance; and a new paragraph is added that 
prohibits the provision of assistance for any foreign country 
or to service debts with multilateral development banks for any 
foreign country. The Committee notes that the requirements in 
this section shall apply to all agencies receiving funds that 
are made available by this Act, and that the $10,000,000 
threshold for application of the subsection is cumulative over 
the life of a program. Subsection (b)(1) is modified to specify 
that the annual determination must include the degree to which 
countries meet each minimum standard of fiscal transparency, in 
(b)(3) the waiver requirement is modified to include a detailed 
description of how funds appropriated by this Act are being 
used to improve budget and contract transparency and a new 
requirement that a list of countries receiving waivers in a 
given year should be made publicly available in the annual 
``Fiscal Transparency Report'', and in (b)(4) a list of the 
recipients of funds provided in this subsection shall be 
included in the annual ``Fiscal Transparency Report''. In the 
``Fiscal Transparency Report'' required by subsection (b), the 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to include a three-
tiered list of countries, with rankings based on the level of 
compliance by a country to meet the requirements of subsection 
(b), similar to the tiers contained in the annual trafficking 
in persons report.
    Sec. 7032, ``Democracy Programs'', is a new provision that 
modifies requirements previously carried in section 7034. 
Subsection (a) makes funds available notwithstanding any other 
provision of law; (b) defines democracy programs; (c) requires 
that such assistance shall not be subject to the prior approval 
by the government of any foreign country, including a report on 
compliance with the subsection; (d) establishes requirements 
for governance programs in countries where the government acts 
in a manner contrary to the advancement of democracy and the 
Committee expects the required strategies to be the basis of 
programs supported by the Department of State and USAID; (e) 
makes funds available to support freedom of religion including 
in the Middle East and North Africa; and (f) requires regular 
communication between the Department of State and USAID with 
the National Endowment for Democracy.
    Security costs.--The Committee recognizes the unique 
challenges of conducting democracy programs in countries in 
conflict and transition and underscores the need for 
programmatic and operational flexibility by both partner 
organizations and funding agencies. The Committee notes the 
often unanticipated high costs associated with security in such 
environments, and that with respect to Iraq and Afghanistan, 
both the Department of State and USAID have not provided clear 
and consistent guidance to democracy grantees regarding 
security costs. The Committee directs the Department of State 
and USAID to improve guidance on methods of allocation and 
accounting of security costs to grantees in conflict and 
transitional countries.
    Sec. 7033, ``Multi-year Commitments'', is modified to 
include projected future year costs in the requirements in the 
section.
    Sec. 7034, ``Special Provisions'', is modified in 
subsection (c) by replacing the ``shall'' with ``may''; in 
subsection (d) replacing ``should'' with ``may''; deleting 
subsections (g), (j), (k), (l), (m), (o), (q), and (r) from the 
prior year; moving a modified subsection (h) to section 7032; 
modifying (n) ``Reports Repealed'' to include two new reports; 
and in subsection (i), deleting the first proviso and requiring 
the Secretary of State and USAID Administrator to jointly 
submit a report on the Partner Vetting System (PVS) pilot 
program, not less than 30 days after the completion of the 
pilot program, which shall include the estimated timeline and 
criteria for evaluating the PVS pilot program for expansion, 
including efforts to standardize and streamline vetting 
processes and programs, a description of consultations with 
governmental and nongovernmental stakeholders affected by the 
pilot program, including long-standing implementing partners 
and United States Government staff based in the field, concerns 
raised during such consultations, and any changes USAID and the 
Department of State plan to make in response to such concerns. 
The Committee expects the PVS pilot program that is intended to 
safeguard against the inadvertent disbursement of funds to a 
terrorist or terrorist organization to be fully implemented and 
directs all stakeholders within the Executive branch to 
coordinate such implementation to maximize efficiency, 
including to ensure its equal application to the programs and 
activities of the Department of State and USAID. In addition, 
subsection (j) adds transfer authority to support extraordinary 
costs of protecting foreign missions and officials.
    Sec. 7039, ``Assistance for the West Bank and Gaza'', is 
modified by adding subsection (h) requiring the Secretary of 
State to certify that economic assistance is for certain 
purposes, prior to the obligation of funds. The Committee notes 
that in addition to the requirements included in subsection 
7040(e) with respect to oversight of assistance to the 
Palestinian Authority, additional requirements on fiscal 
transparency for direct government-to-government assistance are 
included in subsection 7031(a). The Committee expects that any 
assistance provided to the Palestinian Authority will continue 
to strengthen the capacity of institutions to operate in an 
accountable and transparent manner.
    The Committee notes the notification requirement in 
subsection 7039(f) of this Act for assistance for the West Bank 
and Gaza and directs that any such notification that includes 
budget support must include each specific purpose and the 
corresponding amount planned. The Committee further notes that 
funds in this Act are not provided to pay for the stipends of 
Palestinian prisoners or the families of Palestinian prisoners.
    Sec. 7040, ``Limitation on Assistance for the Palestinian 
Authority'', is modified in subsections (e) and (f)(1).
    Sec. 7041, ''Limitations'', similar to section 7086 in the 
prior year is modified in subsection (a) by adding conditions 
and removing the waiver authority.
    Sec. 7042, ``Near East'', similar to section 7041 in the 
prior year, is modified by including certain restrictions on 
funds for the Governments of Egypt, Lebanon, Libya, Syria, and 
Yemen; deleting subsection (b) ``Enterprise Funds''; and 
modifying subsections (c) ``Iraq'', and (h) ``Syria''.
    Subsection (d), ``Jordan'' includes a funding floor for 
Economic Support Fund and Foreign Military Financing Program 
and directs additional funds be made available from OCO/GWOT to 
help support costs associated with the extraordinary needs 
Jordan faces in response to the crisis in Syria. The Committee 
notes the generosity of the people and the Government of Jordan 
in responding to the humanitarian crisis spilling over from 
Syria, including welcoming several hundred thousand refugees 
fleeing the conflict, all while experiencing their own economic 
strains.
    Subsection (g), ``Morocco'' requires the Secretary of 
State, in consultation with the Administrator of USAID, to 
submit a report, not less than 90 days after enactment of this 
Act, which shall include: (1) a description of the needs 
related to development and democratic reform in the regions and 
territories administered by Morocco and how funds made 
available in title III of this Act for assistance for Morocco 
will be used to address such needs; and (2) steps taken to 
resolve the longstanding dispute over the Western Sahara, based 
on autonomy under Moroccan sovereignty, including efforts to 
address durable humanitarian solutions to the protracted 
refugee crisis in the camps near Tindouf, Algeria.
  The Committee notes that the fiscal year 2014 congressional 
budget justifications submitted by the Department of State 
include no request for lethal assistance for Syrian opposition 
groups. Accordingly, the Committee recommendation includes no 
funds for such purpose.
    Sec. 7043, ``Africa'', is modified in subsection (a) by 
deleting ``Conflict Minerals'' and adding ``Central Africa''; 
in subsection (b) ``Counterterrorism Programs'' by modifying 
the funding levels; by deleting subsections (c), (d), (e), and 
(h); by adding subsection (c) ``Natural Resource 
Transparency''; and in subsection (d) ``Sudan Limitation on 
Assistance'' by adding (4) regarding the travel of Sudanese 
President Omar al-Bashir.
    Sec. 7044, ``East Asia and the Pacific'', is modified in 
subsection (b) ``Burma'' by striking paragraph (1) and making 
modifications to paragraph (2); by deleting subsections (c) 
``Cambodia'', (d) ``Indonesia'', (g) ``Philippines'', and (h) 
``Vietnam''; in subsection (d) ``North Korea'' by expanding the 
prohibition on Economic Support Fund; in subsection (e) 
``People's Republic of China'' by including (3) that prohibits 
funds under Global Health Programs, Development Assistance, and 
Economic Support Fund for assistance for the Government of the 
People's Republic of China except for programs in Tibetan 
communities and to detect, prevent, and treat infectious 
disease.
    Sec. 7045, ``Western Hemisphere'', is modified by 
incorporating by reference section 7045(a) up through the fifth 
proviso; by striking subsections (b) and (e); by including 
modified language allowing the transfer of funds from Economic 
Support Fund to Migration and Refugee Assistance; by including 
a new subsection (b) that transfers $20,000,000 from Economic 
Support Fund to NED to promote democracy and strengthen civil 
society in Cuba; by modifying subsection (d) on Honduras; and 
in (f) by striking the dollar level, replacing ``should'' for 
``shall'', and adding Colombia.
    Sec. 7046, ``South Asia'', is modified in subsection (a) 
``Afghanistan'' by: adding a new requirement in paragraph (1) 
to withhold from obligation 15 percent of funds made available 
for the Department of State and USAID operations in Afghanistan 
until the Secretary of State submits a report, which shall be 
updated every six months until September 30, 2015, on a 
transition and security plan and which shall include: (1) an 
assessment of the security environment in Afghanistan with 
respect to United States Government facilities and personnel, 
and the anticipated impact of the withdrawal of United States 
Armed Forces from Afghanistan on such environment; (2) an 
assessment of the security requirements at current and planned 
diplomatic facilities throughout Afghanistan, the number of 
personnel at such facilities, including locally employed staff, 
contractors, and United States Government personnel; (3) a 
description of the duties of such personnel, and costs 
associated with contractor personnel; (4) a justification for 
each ongoing or planned construction project, and the plans 
for, and status of, each such project, including verification 
of land-use agreements; (5) the types of any non-traditional 
equipment to be used by the Department of State to meet the 
security requirements at each facility identified in (2), and 
whether agreement with the host government exists to use such 
equipment; (6) a description of contingency plans, including 
evacuation, at each facility; (7) a descriptive timeline from 
2014 to 2016 for downsizing the civilian and sub-provincial 
presence and staff at Embassy Kabul, including anticipated 
reductions in operations costs and staffing for each fiscal 
year by agency and for each current and planned facility, and 
modifications to ongoing or planned construction projects to 
reflect the planned reductions in staff; (8) diplomatic and 
development programs supported by the United States at each 
such facility, including program timelines, benchmarks, and 
quantitative and qualitative metrics; and (9) a determination 
that all USAID projects implemented by organizations requiring 
security in Afghanistan have qualified and reliable security 
personnel, equipment, and services, and that such security is 
cost effective and efficient.
    Modifying the limitation in paragraph (1) from the prior 
year by requiring that no funds may be made available for the 
Government of Afghanistan until the Secretary of State submits 
a certification that: (1) funds will only support programs and 
activities that the Government of Afghanistan is capable of 
sustaining, as appropriate; (2) the Government of Afghanistan 
is reducing corruption and improving governance, including by 
investigating, prosecuting, sanctioning, or removing corrupt 
officials from office and implementing financial transparency 
and accountability measures for government institutions and 
officials (including the Central Bank), as well as conducting 
oversight of public resources; (3) funds will be used to 
support and strengthen the capacity of Afghan public and 
private institutions and entities to reduce corruption and 
improve transparency and accountability of national, 
provincial, and local governments, and such governments are 
actively supporting such efforts; (4) representatives of such 
governments, and local communities and civil society 
organizations (including women's organizations), will be 
consulted and participate in the design, implementation, and 
oversight of programs, projects, and activities, and the 
development of specific benchmarks to measure progress and 
outcomes; and (5) the Government of Afghanistan is taking 
credible and consistent steps to protect the rights of Afghan 
women.
    Incorporating by reference subparagraphs (A), (C), (F), and 
(H) of paragraph (2), clauses (i) and (ii) of paragraph (2)(B), 
and paragraph (3) from the prior year and by deleting clause 
(iii) of paragraph (2)(B), and clause (i) of subparagraph (D).
    Adding in paragraph (2)(C), a cost-matching requirement; 
and in paragraph (2)(F) that notifications for infrastructure 
projects that exceed $5,000,000, including for water, energy, 
and transportation shall include how each project meets the 
following criteria: (1) the project is based on best 
development practices, including lessons learned from recent 
audits of similar projects; (2) the Government of Afghanistan 
has a credible plan to sustain the project; and (3) contingency 
plans exist to mitigate the risk of sustainment failure.
    Adding in paragraph (3) reporting requirements on: the IMF 
country program in subparagraph (A), similar to paragraph 
(2)(G) from the prior year; and the Afghan Strategic 
Partnership in subparagraph (B).
    Adding in paragraph (4) the spend plan required in section 
7076 and in paragraph (2)(G) a requirement that assistance 
should be suspended if any of the required reports in paragraph

and benchmarks detailed in such reports.
    Adding in paragraph (5) a withholding of 15 percent of 
funds made available under Economic Support Fund for direct 
government-to-government assistance for Afghanistan until the 
Secretary of State certifies that all policies and procedures

of Afghanistan to ensure compliance with the prohibition of 
taxation of foreign assistance included in section 7013 of this 
Act. The report accompanying the certification must include all 
official guidance issued to implementing partners and all 
agreements with the Government of Afghanistan with regard to 
taxes and revenue.
    Deleting subsection (b) ``Nepal'' and subsection (d) ``Sri

the waiver, and deleting (2)(B) through (2)(F).
  The Committee notes with concern the circumstances 
surrounding the death of Bhoomika Kochhar Jatia, a United 
States citizen married to a Nepali national, and urges United 
States Embassy personnel in Kathmandu to monitor Nepali 
authorities to ensure a full and fair investigation is 
conducted.
    Sec. 7049, ``Limitations on the United Nations'', is 
modified in subsection (a) withholding a portion of the funds 
for the United Nations and international organizations until 
certain accountability and transparency measures are met 
including those for whistleblower protections; in subsection 
(b) expanding the restriction to all funds in this Act and 
deleting (b)(3); in subsection (c) allowing a waiver of the 
prohibition on funding for the United Nations Human Rights 
Council if the Secretary of State determines and reports that 
it is in the national security interest of the United States

agenda item and reports on such steps; in subsection (d) 
specifying a number of transparency and accountability reforms 
for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency that must be met

    Sec. 7058, ``Global Health Activities'', is modified by 
deleting the proviso in subsection (a), deleting subsections 
(b) and (d), and inserting a new subsection (b) limiting the 
level of funds provided in this Act for family planning to not 
more than $461,000,000. Subsection (c) is modified to include

    Sec. 7062, ``Sector Allocations'', is modified in

and (f); by including a new subsection (b) ``Conservation''; by 
modifying (d) ``Food Security and Agriculture Development'' by 
deleting the dollar amounts and limiting the authority; by 
modifying subsection (g) ``Trafficking in Persons'' by striking 
$36,000,000 and inserting $44,000,000 and deleting ``Assistance 
for Europe, Eurasia, and Central Asia''; and by including a new 
subsection (h) ``American Schools and Hospitals Abroad'', which 
provides not less than $23,000,000 from Development Assistance 
for the American Schools and Hospitals Abroad program.
    With respect to subsection (b) ``Conservation'', the 
Committee directs $200,000,000 in title III be made available 
for biodiversity conservation programs, including $2,000,000 to 
implement and enforce the Lacey Act (section 8204 of Public Law 
110-246), $10,000,000 for biodiversity programs in the 
Brazilian Amazon, including efforts that seek to build the 
capacity of Brazil to manage its own protected areas, and 
$20,000,000 for such programs in the Andean Amazon. The 
Committee supports programs to protect sustainable landscapes, 
in addition to funding for biodiversity conservation.
    The Committee remains concerned about the rapid increase in 
wildlife poaching and trafficking and the serious implications 
it has on international security and stability. The Committee 
notes that the multi-billion dollar illegal trade in wildlife 
and wildlife products, particularly in Africa and Asia, has 
strong linkages to other forms of transnational organized 
crime, including trafficking in narcotics and arms. The 
Committee recognizes the heightened severity of poaching in 
Africa, particularly with respect to elephant ivory and 
rhinoceros horn, and the destabilizing effect it has on 
regional security, including by providing a significant source 
of financing for armed groups with links to transnational 
organized crime and terrorism. The Committee encourages the 
inclusion of wildlife poaching and trafficking in the United 
States Government's Strategy to Combat Transnational Organized 
Crime. The Committee directs not less than $45,000,000 in 
titles III and IV be made available to address this urgent 
crisis, including to support programs to reduce consumer demand 
in Asia, strengthen law enforcement, and enhance regional 
cooperation and anti-trafficking networks. The Committee notes 
the immediate need for training and equipment and expects these 
requirements to be prioritized, including by the provision of 
excess defense articles and the expedited procurement of 
defense articles and services, as appropriate.
    The Committee directs that, not later than 45 days after 
enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State, Administrator of 
USAID, and Director of the USFWS consult with the Committees on 
Appropriations on the use of funds provided for these purposes. 
The Committee further directs the Secretary of State to submit 
a report to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than 
180 days after enactment of this Act, on implementation of the 
National Strategy for Combating Wildlife Trafficking.
    The Committee expects that international conservation 
programs administered by the Department of State and USAID will 
utilize the expertise from across the United States Government, 
including in partnership with the USFWS, and other agencies as 
appropriate. The Committee notes the ongoing threats to other 
endangered species and supports continued funding for programs 
to protect great apes and tigers, including for habitat 
conservation. The Committee notes the unique ecosystem in 
Madagascar and encourages USAID to support environmental 
protection activities.
    The Committee supports continued United States leadership 
of the Congo Basin Forest Partnership and includes $25,000,000 
for the Central Africa Regional Program for the Environment 
(CARPE). The Committee directs that $11,500,000 of the funds 
made available for CARPE be apportioned directly to the USFWS 
to support further development and implementation of a Central 
African regional wildlife law enforcement network and to build 
local capacity for wildlife protection in the Central African 
region. These programs should include the professionalization 
of park guards and other wildlife law enforcement officials and 
the provision of tools and technologies for measuring, 
evaluating, and improving the effectiveness of wildlife law 
enforcement patrols and site-based protection and conservation 
activities.
    The Committee notes that the success of CARPE depends on 
building the capacity of 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 CARPE to become a 
comprehensive and sustainable program.
    With respect to subsection (g) ``Trafficking in Persons'', 
the Committee recommendation includes not less than $44,000,000 
under Development Assistance, Economic Support Fund, and 
International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement for 
activities to combat trafficking in persons internationally, 
which is the same as the request. The Committee also includes 
the request level under Diplomatic and Consular Programs for 
the State Department Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking 
in Persons. The Committee directs that $5,000,000 be made 
available for Child Protection Compacts, pursuant to Public Law 
113-4, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2013.
    The Committee urges the Secretary of State and the 
Administrator of USAID to continue to incorporate efforts to 
combat human trafficking and slavery into all aspects of 
foreign assistance and expects that systems are in place to 
ensure programs contribute to decreasing vulnerability to, or 
prevalence of, human trafficking and slavery, consistent with 
the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000. The Committee 
urges the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor at the 
Department of State to continue its efforts to combat human 
trafficking and exploitative labor practices overseas, 
including efforts to work with the private sector on policies 
and initiatives to eliminate such practices, and efforts to 
include human trafficking and slavery issues within its South-
South intergovernmental cooperation programs. The Committee 
directs the Ambassador-at-Large for Combating Human Trafficking 
to include in the next Trafficking in Persons Report a section 
on best practices in slavery eradication to highlight 
innovations and partnerships in prevention, protection, and 
prosecution of the perpetrators of trafficking; and a section 
to highlight the vulnerability of refugee populations to human 
trafficking and to make recommendations for the prevention of 
refugee trafficking.
  Demand for commercial sex contributes to the phenomenon of 
human trafficking and is generally higher in countries where 
purchase of commercial sex is legal. As such, the Committee 
urges the Department of State, when determining, for the 
purposes of the annual Trafficking in Persons Report, whether a 
country is making serious and sustained efforts to reduce 
demand for commercial sex acts, to consider whether there is 
legal sanction against the purchase of commercial sex acts.
    Sec. 7063, ``Central Asia'', is modified to no longer apply 
section 7075(a) through (d) of the fiscal year 2009 Act, and 
the time period for the waiver authority is modified.
    Sec. 7065, ``Limitations on Family Planning/Reproductive 
Health'', is a new provision that prohibits funds to the UNFPA 
and prohibits funds for population planning activities or other 
population assistance to foreign nongovernmental organizations 
that promote or perform abortion, with certain exceptions.
    Sec. 7066, ``International Prison Conditions'', is modified 
by deleting subsections (a) and (b) and modifying (c) to 
replace ``shall'' with ``may''.
    Sec. 7067, ``Prohibition on Use of Torture'', is modified

directs each agency to include in their annual congressional

additional $6,520,000,000 which is designated for OCO/GWOT 
pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and 
Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985. Funds appropriated as 
OCO/GWOT under this title address the extraordinary, but 
temporary, costs of contingency operations in Afghanistan, 
Pakistan, and Iraq; conflict stabilization and response 
efforts, including in the Middle East and North Africa; and 
other programs that address counterterrorism, 
counterinsurgency, and humanitarian crises resulting from 
conflict. The Committee notes that OCO/GWOT funds are expected 
to phase out over time and that the Committee recommendation is 
$4,683,000,000 below the fiscal year 2013 enacted level.
    The Committee recommendation does not designate funding 
levels for country programs or other activities under this 
title but notes that funds provided are subject to the 
operating and spend plan requirements of section 7076 of this 
Act. The Committee directs that, in addition to those plans, 
the Department of State and USAID should consult with the 
Committees on Appropriations on a regular and ongoing basis on 
operations and assistance for Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq.

    The Committee recommendation includes an additional

designated for OCO/GWOT pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 for 
support of contingency operations, including in Afghanistan, 
Jordan, Iraq, and Pakistan.
    Iraq.--The Committee notes the request for human rights, 
democracy, religious freedom, and civil society programs and 
urges the Department of State and USAID to continue efforts to 
encourage the incorporation of women in stabilizing Iraq and 
creating its democratic government institutions, including 
through a women's democracy initiative.
    The Committee continues to recognize the importance of 
providing targeted assistance to the ethno-religious minorities 
in Iraq to ensure their survival. The Committee expects the 
reporting requirement on ethno-religious minorities from the 
previous year to continue, and directs the Secretary of State 
to submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations, not 
later than 60 days after enactment of this Act, detailing a 
comprehensive United States Government policy to address the 
plight of these communities, including those living in the 
Nineveh Plains. The policy should be forward-looking, rather 
than a summary of previously funded projects and initiatives.
    Further, the Committee directs the Department of State to 
establish a long-term comprehensive plan to provide durable 
solutions for internally displaced Iraqis and Iraqi refugees. 
The plan should ensure that particular attention is given to 
vulnerable groups such as religious minorities, including the 
Christian community, and Iraqis who assisted the United States 
mission in Iraq.
    Afghanistan.--Funds appropriated under this heading that 
are available for Afghanistan are subject to the terms and 
conditions of section 7046(a) of this Act. The Committee 
recommendation includes the requirements and conditions on 
assistance from prior years on oversight, accountability, and 
the rights of women and girls. The Committee notes the changing 
political, economic, and security situation related to the 
drawdown of United States Armed Forces in Afghanistan and 
includes new requirements to address plans for the transition 
and security, including for implementing partners.
    The Committee remains concerned about the serious security 
implications for implementing partners that have transitioned 
from Personal Security Contractors to the Afghan Public 
Protection Force (APPF) for their protection needs in 
Afghanistan. The State Department and USAID must ensure that 
the safety of personnel of organizations delivering United 
States assistance in Afghanistan is not compromised by the 
current arrangement with the Government of Afghanistan, which 
has raised concerns about capacity, reliability, oversight, and 
management. The Committee includes new language withholding 
funds until the Secretary of State submits a determination that 
qualified and reliable security personnel, equipment, and 
services are in place for organizations that require security 
and that such security is cost effective and efficient. In 
light of growing concerns regarding whether the APPF can 
fulfill its security obligations, the Committee urges the 
Secretary of State to consider alternate strategies that will 
ensure security can be provided at the required professional 
standards, so that the United States assistance that is 
intended to improve the lives of Afghans can continue to be 
provided by qualified implementing partners.
    The Committee notes the ongoing complications that 
organizations implementing United States assistance have 
encountered with respect to taxation by the Government of 
Afghanistan. The Committee is concerned that the Department of 
State has not addressed the issue sufficiently with 
implementing partners or the Government of Afghanistan.
    The Committee recommendation includes a new requirement 
that 15 percent of funds planned for direct assistance to the 
Government of Afghanistan be withheld until the Secretary of 
State certifies and reports that all necessary policies and 
procedures are in place to ensure compliance with section 7013 
of this Act. The report must include official guidance and 
agreements.
    The Committee remains concerned about the sustainability of 
investments made through United States assistance and the 
capacity of the Government of Afghanistan to support and manage 
the programs over the long-term. The Committee notes that 
significant water reconstruction programs are of particular 
concern because the Government of Afghanistan does not have 
comprehensive monitoring or effective resource management in 
place. The Committee recommendation includes a new requirement 
that infrastructure projects that exceed $5,000,000, including 
for water, must meet certain criteria on best practices and 
lessons learned, that the Government of Afghanistan has a 
credible plan to sustain the project, and contingency plans 
exist to mitigate the risk of sustainment failure. The 
Committee expects the Department of State and USAID to support 
programs that build the institutional capacity for water 
monitoring and water management in order to ensure the 
Government of Afghanistan can successfully sustain these 
programs over time as directed by the new requirement. The 
Committee remains concerned about providing assistance to 
Afghanistan directly through the government. The Committee 
includes robust restrictions on direct government-to-government 
assistance in section 7031 of this Act.
    Training for the media in Pakistan and Afghanistan is 
essential to the development of an independent and free media. 
The Committee recommends continuing funding under the Bureau of 
Democracy, Human Rights and Labor and USAID for programs and 
activities that support the development of independent media, 
including radio, in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
    Pakistan.--The Committee recommendation continues the 
prohibition of funds for Pakistan until the Secretary of State 
provides a certification pursuant to section 7046 of this Act. 
The Committee expects that projects supported by the Department 
of State and USAID must demonstrate that they foster economic 
development and decrease the appeal of extremism. The Committee 
is concerned about discrimination against minority communities 
in Pakistan who are not able to practice their faiths in a safe 
environment. The Committee urges the Department of State and 
USAID to ensure that programs include minority groups and to 
press the Government of Pakistan to take all necessary steps to 
end discrimination and to safeguard freedom of religion.
    The Committee encourages the Department of State and USAID 
to support programs that are transparent, accountable, and 
encourage local community engagement to develop participatory 
solutions that address Pakistan's development needs.
    The Committee remains concerned about providing assistance 
to Pakistan directly through the government. The Committee 
includes robust restrictions on providing assistance in this 
manner in section 7031 of this Act.

                Fund, and the purpose and progress of each 
                project supported by the Fund, including the 
                extent to which assistance made available by 
                the Fund has reduced or will reduce greenhouse 
                gas emissions in recipient countries; and
                  [(B) how each project furthers the Fund's 
                investment plan of the country or countries in 
                which the project is implemented.]
          (4) Definitions.--For purposes of this subsection--
                  (A) Net reductions.--The term ``net 
                reductions'' refers to the extent to which a 
                project or program supported under this 
                subsection results in lower greenhouse gas 
                emissions than would be emitted by the same 
                entity or sector in the same country in the 
                absence of the Fund's project, taking into 
                account, unless impracticable, effects beyond 
                the physical boundaries of the project or 
                program that result from project or program 
                activities.
                  (B) Public sector activities.--The term 
                ``public sector activities'' may include 
                sovereign loans assumed by the recipient 
                country to contribute to the financing of the 
                investment plan.
                  (C) Clean energy technology.--The term 
                ``clean energy technology'' means a technology 
                that, as compared with technologies being 
                deployed at that time for widespread commercial 
                use in the country involved--
                          (i) achieves substantial reductions 
                        in greenhouse gas emissions;
                          (ii) does not result in significant 
                        incremental adverse effects on public 
                        health or the environment; and
                          (iii) does one or more of the 
                        following:
                                  (I) generates electricity or 
                                useful thermal energy from a 
                                renewable resource;
                                  (II) substantially increases 
                                the energy efficiency of 
                                buildings, industrial, or 
                                agricultural processes, or of 
                                electricity transmission, 
                                distribution, or end-use 
                                consumption; or
                                  (III) substantially increases 
                                the energy efficiency of the 
                                transportation system or 
                                increases utilization of 
                                transportation fuels that have 
                                lifecycle greenhouse gas 
                                emissions that are 
                                substantially lower than those 
                                attributable to fossil fuel-

      Comparative Statement of New Budget (Obligational) Authority

    The following table provides a detailed summary, for each 
department and agency, comparing the amounts recommended in the 
bill with fiscal year 2013 enacted amounts and budget estimates 
presented for fiscal year 2014:



             MINORITY VIEWS OF REPRESENTATIVE NITA M. LOWEY

    The Department of State, foreign operations appropriations 
bill has improved the lives of the most vulnerable and provided 
life-saving treatment and assistance to millions while 
promoting stability, peace, and economic prosperity throughout 
the world. Throughout its history, this bill has been 
considered on a bipartisan basis, and I want to thank 
Chairwoman Granger for continuing the tradition of working to 
find common ground on essential national security issues. While 
the allocation is below where I would like it to be, the Chair 
made every effort to include the concerns of the minority and I 
greatly appreciate her courtesy throughout the committee 
process.
    While I appreciate the Chairwoman's efforts on this bill, 
the overall allocation provided to the Appropriations Committee 
was unworkable from the start. It forced impossible choices and 
is, predictably, creating winners and losers among our twelve 
subcommittees. I am dismayed by the House Majority's refusal to 
go to conference to develop a bipartisan agreement on the 
budget resolution that addresses sequestration and provide 
realistic 302(b) allocations instead of placing this Committee 
in the position of drastically underfunding essential programs. 
The investments made under the jurisdiction of this 
subcommittee are the best means to ensure that our nation does 
not have to pursue unilateral solutions later, which are 
ultimately far more expensive in blood and treasure. The Ryan 
Budget imposes unrealistic ceilings that fail to recognize that 
in order to achieve our national security interests we must 
respond to global challenges in education, health, and the 
environment, invest in public diplomacy, and work 
multilaterally to combat terrorism, boost economic growth, and 
maintain stability.
    The Committee recommendation for FY 2014 for the Department 
of State, foreign operations appropriations bill is $34.103 
billion in base funding and $6.52 billion in Overseas 
Contingency Operations (OCO), for a total of $40.623 billion. 
This is $11.054 billion (21.4%) below the President's combined 
base and OCO request of $51.677 billion and $12.673 billion 
(24%) below the FY 2013 pre-sequester enacted level for 
Department of State, foreign operations programs. This level is 
inadequate to meet the needs of many programs and activities 
requested by the Administration. In comparison, the FY 2014 
allocation for the Senate Department of State, foreign 
operations appropriations bill is $44.079 billion in core and 
$6.515 billion in OCO for a total of $50.594 billion, or $9.971 
billion (19.7%) higher than the House allocation.
    The Chairwoman did her best to craft a bill in response to 
many divergent demands while also remaining within the 
constrained 302(b) allocation. I am pleased that the bill 
provides assistance at the President's request level to Israel, 
an important ally in a volatile region of the world. Our 
strategic alliance with Israel is indispensable, particularly 
in the midst of great turmoil in the Middle East, and the 
funding we provide to Israel helps protect our own national 
security interests as well as the security of the only bulwark 
of democracy in the region. The bill also continues to meet our 
commitments to other important Middle East partners by 
providing funding above the President's request for Jordan. 
Funding is also provided to Egypt, but the prohibitions on 
economic and security assistance are continued if the 
Government of Egypt does not adhere to the peace treaty with 
Israel and meet other important conditions. I also support the 
continuation of conditions on aid to the Palestinian Authority 
along with long-standing safeguards to ensure funding provided 
to the Palestinian Authority is spent properly. These 
conditions, as well as language maintaining restrictions on 
Iran, assist Congress in maintaining oversight of assistance 
that addresses critical security imperatives in a rapidly-
changing environment.
    The bill provides robust funding for our global health 
efforts and funds PEPFAR at the level of the President's 
request. It also includes $1.65 billion for the Global Fund. 
Additionally, I am pleased the Chairwoman included report 
language providing $100 million for nutrition and maintaining 
current funding levels for child survival and maternal health 
as well as supporting the FY 2012 levels for malaria, 
tuberculosis and programs for vulnerable children.
    Importantly, the bill provides $800 million for basic 
education programs. These programs foster healthy, democratic 
societies that are the linchpin to all other national goals and 
initiatives. Additionally, I support a United States 
contribution to the Global Partnership for Education which will 
help leverage these dollars and ensure that the taxpayer is 
getting the greatest impact possible for their tax dollars. I 
also appreciate the Chair maintaining funding for clean water 
and basic sanitation as this assistance is fundamental to the 
health and economic wellbeing of families throughout the world. 
Additionally, I am pleased that the Chairwoman has included 
significant funding for the Peace Corps. The volunteers from 
the Peace Corps impact countless lives in the developing world 
each year while furthering our public diplomacy efforts.
    While I have noted that the Chairwoman accommodated 
numerous Democratic priorities, I remain extremely disappointed 
that the Republican leadership of the House continues to target 
family planning programs for cuts and divisive policy riders. 
Evidence shows time and again that family planning programs 
lead to fewer unwanted pregnancies, fewer abortions, and fewer 
maternal and infant deaths. These are goals that all in 
Congress share. It is incomprehensible that the Republican 
Majority continues to insist on including provisions that are 
proven to result in more abortions because they prevent women 
around the world from gaining access to essential information 
and health care services.
    Therefore, I do not support the inclusion of the Mexico 
City Policy, or the prohibition on funding for United Nations 
Population Fund (UNFPA), or the capping of bilateral family 
planning and reproductive health programs at $461 million. 
During the committee process, I offered an amendment which 
would have removed the Global Gag Rule and the prohibition on 
funding of UNFPA, replacing it with language on UNFPA that was 
carried forward in the FY 2013 Continuing Resolution 
Appropriations Act. The amendment would not have changed any of 
the current provisions in law that restricts the use of family 
planning funds. I am very disappointed that this amendment 
failed by a vote of 24 to 26.
    Two additional amendments were offered to restore funding 
for UNFPA. Representative Rosa DeLauro offered an amendment 
which failed by a vote of 24 to 26. It would have provided the 
President's request of $37 million for UNFPA but restricted 
funding solely for the prevention and treatment of obstetric 
fistulas, changing traditional practices around female genital 
mutilation, providing contraception to prevent unwanted 
pregnancy and sexually-transmitted diseases, eliminating 
practices of sex selection, and providing safe delivery kits to 
ensure safe childbirth. Representative Barbara Lee offered 
another amendment which failed by a vote of 23 to 26. It would 
have provided the President's request to UNFPA to provide 
reproductive health and basic family planning services to the 
poorest countries in the world where the United States provides 
no bilateral funding. The Committee's rejection of these 
amendments is a tragedy for the millions of women who will go 
without such lifesaving programs.
    Additionally, the House bill proposes a cut of 61% from our 
engagement with multilateral organizations including the United 
Nations, the World Bank, and others. Partnerships with 
multilateral organizations are vital to the diplomatic and 
security imperatives of the United States and our efforts are 
strengthened by our investments in organizations such as the UN 
Children's Fund (UNICEF), UN Development Program (UNDP), UN 
WOMEN, and the multilateral development banks. These 
organizations also leverage United States investment to achieve 
a greater impact than we could achieve on our own. For example, 
every dollar we provide to the Asian and African Development 
Banks leverages $20 from other donors. Reducing our 
participation will not only reduce United States influence in 
these important institutions but the void left behind is sure 
to be filled by other countries whose objectives may not align 
with the United States. The elimination of funding to the 
International Organizations and Programs account and important 
institutions such as Asian Development Bank, African 
Development Bank, Global Environment Facility, Inter-American 
Development Bank, Global Agricultural and Food Security 
Program, and the International Fund for Agricultural 
Development is shortsighted and should be corrected as the bill 
moves forward.
    I am disappointed that the Committee rejected, on a party 
line vote of 22 to 28, an amendment by Representative Adam 
Schiff that would have restored funding to vital programs such 
as UNICEF, UN Victims of Torture, Office of the High 
Commissioner for Human Rights and numerous other critical UN 
and international organizations. I am particularly disturbed 
that the bill cut funding for UNICEF, an organization that 
provides crucial prenatal care, child health and nutrition 
programs. UNICEF has saved countless lives around the world and 
I believe its lack of funding displays a clear distinction 
between the Democratic and Republican parties in the 
stewardship of scarce foreign assistance dollars. The Committee 
also rejected an amendment to restore the cuts to multilateral 
development banks offered by Representative Debbie Wasserman 
Schultz by a vote of 21 to 28. These institutions are critical 
to building trade capacity and advancing growth in emerging 
economies which open new business opportunities and promote job 
creation in the United States.
    The bill also cuts the development assistance account to $2 
billion, which is $838 million below the FY 2013 enacted level. 
These funds build stronger and more stable communities around 
the world by building a government's capacity to care for its 
citizens for generations to come. Our goal must be to 
eventually phase-out assistance to countries, and our 
development assistance programs are necessary to achieve this 
outcome. However, the cuts in the House bill will slow our 
progress and have an adverse impact on programs to build food 
security, support women's empowerment and governance, and 
promote environmental sustainability.
    The bill also eliminates funding to accounts and programs 
that address global climate change such as the 
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the Strategic 
Climate Fund and the Clean Technology Fund. By not providing 
funding for these programs, the bill threatens to rollback 
advances in developing countries that are likely to be the 
hardest hit by extreme changes in weather patterns and rising 
sea levels. Climate change is not just about the environment. 
The funding helps to reduce poverty and promote economic growth 
in these countries. Evidence shows that failure to provide 
these funds increases the risk of conflict and generates 
conditions that could lead to failed states and make 
populations more vulnerable to radicalization.
    I am also deeply concerned about the funding levels 
provided in the bill for the operating expenses of the 
Department of State and the United States Agency for 
International Development (USAID). While I support the funding 
for embassy security and personnel protection, the cuts to 
operations accounts at the State Department and USAID leave 
inadequate funding which jeopardizes the training and support 
needed by our diplomatic and development professionals to meet 
21st century requirements and to minimize reliance on the 
military or contractors to carry out essential diplomatic and 
development missions. The bill does not include the requested 
funds for new hires, nor does it provide the authority 
requested by the Administration to continue pay comparability, 
in effect requiring a significant reduction in pay, beyond a 
pay freeze, to the Foreign Service and diplomatic workforce. 
The funding cuts in this bill will take USAID and State 
Department backwards, making it difficult to retain or hire the 
caliber of individuals necessary to accomplish our national 
security objectives and goals.
    Further, I am concerned that this bill does not include 
authorization for a Working Capital Fund at USAID. Such a fund 
is critical to USAID's ability to provide necessary 
accountability and oversight. For almost two decades, USAID 
program resources have outpaced staffing by more than two to 
one, leading to an overreliance on external contractors and 
grantees for the technical management of programs. With a 
working capital fund, USAID would have a consistent funding 
stream dedicated to management and oversight that is 
commensurate with its program levels.
    It is also disappointing that the FY 2014 appropriations 
process did not accommodate the Administration's request for 
substantial food aid reform. The United States is a generous 
nation and since the 1950s has fed billions of people around 
the world through the Food for Peace program. However, nearly 
sixty years after its creation, the world has changed and our 
programs need to respond. The United States does not have the 
surpluses it did decades ago and is now forced to purchase food 
on the commercial markets, diminishing our purchasing power. 
According to independent analyses, the number of direct 
recipients of our food aid has dropped from 74 million in 2006 
to an average of 30 million more recently. The highest 
objective of our food aid programs should be to serve the 
maximum number of people in need in the most cost effective way 
possible. I believe this could best be achieved by funding 
these programs through the Department of State, foreign 
operations appropriations bill and I hope we can continue to 
pursue these reforms in the future.
    Foreign assistance is rooted in the fundamental generosity 
of the American people. While foreign assistance funding is an 
easy target in a time of fiscal belt tightening, working to 
reduce the enormous suffering across the globe should be a 
bipartisan goal--one that is based on the overriding national 
security needs of the United States. This is neither a 
Democratic cause nor a Republican cause; it is an American 
cause. The allocation provided fails to meet the growing 
demands placed on the State Department and the other 
international affairs agencies, ultimately endangering our 
strategic goals.
    I look forward to continuing to work cooperatively with 
Chairwoman Granger and the full committee membership to improve 
the bill as we continue through the appropriations process.

                                   Nita M. Lowey.
