                              INTRODUCTION

    In the Introduction to Senate Report 114-79, the Committee 
justified the relevancy of diplomacy and development to the 
global challenges faced by the United States and its allies, 
and underscored that funds for these purposes since 2002 
consistently included a mix of non-emergency appropriations, 
emergency supplemental appropriations, and/or funds designated 
as OCO, depending on the prevailing designation at the time 
such funds were appropriated.
    Polling data underscores that the American public remains 
cognizant of the threats posed by international terrorism, 
cyberterrorism, pandemic viruses, a nuclearized Iran and North 
Korea, and the displacement of populations unseen since World 
War II caused by conflict in the Middle East, Central America, 
and Africa.\1\ Yet despite this concern and the de facto status 
of the United States as the sole superpower, only 16 percent of 
Americans believe the United States should take a leading role 
in solving international problems and 37 percent of Americans 
believe that the United States should play a minor role or no 
role at all.\2\

s-role-in-global-health-section-1-8861/.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Given this apparent contradiction, an early task of a new 
administration should be to define and clarify the role and 
responsibility of the United States in world affairs. This will 
require the next President to--
  --fully understand the multidimensional complexities of the 
        threats and challenges the United States faces today, 
        including by armed non-state actors seeking to 
        undermine state systems in Syria, Iraq, Libya, and 
        Yemen on one level, and the concurrent clash of 
        geostrategic interests between Iran and the Gulf States 
        on another;
  --develop and articulate a grand strategy for American power, 
        influence, and security, which must translate into 
        coherent and coordinated policies to guide U.S. 
        departments and agencies; and
  --request adequate personnel and resources for diplomacy, 
        development, and defense in order to effectively 
        implement such policies.
    The United States has a clear choice. Through the triad of 
diplomacy, development, and defense it can help shape the 
strategic terrain and provide some semblance of order to 
international affairs, or it can continue to be buffeted by new 
and expanding threats to U.S. national security, including in 
the form of a virus, extremism, or a cyber-attack. The 
Committee believes that funds in the act for diplomacy, 
development, and security effectively contribute to bilateral 
and multilateral efforts to achieve greater stability in the 
international system, but that going forward, greater clarity 
must be provided by the President on the strategic imperative 
of foreign operations and assistance, including the appropriate 
use of non-emergency, emergency supplemental, and OCO funds.
    As the Committee heard in testimony on April 12, 2016 on 
``The Causes and Consequences of Violent Extremism and the Role 
of Foreign Assistance'':
          ``. . . there remains a role that only America can 
        fill--leadership that only America can provide. . . . 
        We know what American ingenuity can do when unleashed. 
        We know what American compassion can do. We know what 
        American leadership can do.''

                       CONDUCT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS

    The Committee underscores the primacy of the Secretary of 
State in the conduct of foreign affairs, as enumerated in 
section 622(c) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 [FAA] 
(Public Law 87-195) for the ``continuous oversight and general 
direction of economic assistance, military assistance, and 
military education and training programs''. Section 7056 of the 
act updates these responsibilities to include law enforcement 
and justice assistance.
    However, the failure of the National Security Council under 
this and previous administrations to adequately integrate and 
coordinate foreign and military policies to ensure more 
effective cooperation among and between U.S. Government 
departments and agencies, and the complex and dynamic nature of 
today's security threats, have created parallel and competing 
foreign assistance programs, particularly at the Department of 
Defense. Unless conducted in a whole-of-government manner under 
the direction of the President and the Secretary of State, 
economic, law enforcement, justice, and military assistance 
programs conducted by the Department of Defense without the 
concurrence of the Secretary of State--from program development 
through program execution--erodes the coherent, coordinated, 
and effective implementation of U.S. foreign policy.

                             REDUCING COSTS

    As in prior years, the Federal agencies administering funds 
appropriated by the act are directed to regularly review all 
costs associated with operations and programs to determine 
their necessity, priority, and effectiveness.
    Contractor Bonuses.--The Committee directs the Department 
of State, the United States Agency for International 
Development [USAID], and other agencies to refrain from 
providing bonuses to government contractors that have failed to 
complete their contract in a satisfactory manner, including as 
a result of scheduling delays or cost overruns.
    Cost Savings and Efficiencies.--Not later than 45 days 
after enactment of the act, the Offices of Inspector General 
[OIG] of the Department of State and USAID shall each provide 
the Committee a consolidated list of OIG recommendations for 
potential position reductions and office reductions or closures 
for the past fiscal year, including estimated cost savings, and 
the responses to such recommendations by such agencies.
    Development Innovation Ventures Program.--Not later than 45 
days after enactment of the act, the USAID Administrator shall 
submit to the Committee the status of implementation of 
recommendations by the U.S. Government Accountability Office 
[GAO] regarding USAID's Development Innovation Ventures program 
(GAO-16-142).
    Diplomatic Facilities.--The Committee directs the 
Department of State and USAID to continue to consolidate 
redundant services and operations at diplomatic facilities 
abroad. Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the USAID 
Administrator, should update the report required in Senate 
Report 113-195 on these services and operations.
    Duplication.--The Committee notes that in recent years GAO 
has published reports suggesting areas of unnecessary 
duplication and overlap throughout the Federal Government. Not 
later than 90 days after enactment of the act, each department 
and agency identified in the 2016 annual GAO duplication report 
(GAO-16-375SP) that receives funds appropriated by the act 
shall submit a report to the Committee detailing efforts to 
eliminate or remedy the duplication identified, and describing 
any legal or other barrier to addressing such duplication.
    Executive Meetings, Ceremonies, and Conferences.--The 
Committee directs the Department of State, USAID, and other 
agencies funded by the act to continue to achieve savings by 
reducing the cost of executive meetings, ceremonies, and 
conferences, and curtailing the purchase of commemorative and 
promotional items.

            CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET REQUEST AND JUSTIFICATIONS

    Timely budget information in the congressional budget 
justification [CBJ] that is clearly, concisely, and accurately 
presented must be a priority of the administration. The 
Committee expects the Department of State, USAID, and other 
agencies funded by the act to submit CBJs within 4 weeks of the 
release of the President's fiscal year 2018 budget request. The 
Committee also directs the Department of State, USAID, and 
other agencies to include detailed information on all available 
resources, including estimated prior year unobligated balances 
and recoveries, reimbursable agreements, funds transferred 
pursuant to sections 632(a) and (b) of the FAA, and significant 
uses of the Economy Act.
    The Committee directs the Department of State, USAID, and 
any other agency that utilizes a Working Capital Fund [WCF] to 
include in the CBJ the total budgetary resources for each 
office that receives funds from a WCF. The CBJ shall also 
include a table on WCF resources that will serve as the 
baseline for reprogramming and transfer purposes.
    The Committee directs that CBJs include estimated savings 
from any proposed office or mission closing, and actual prior 
year representation expenses for each department and agency 
that is authorized such expenses.

                     DEFINITIONS AND ABBREVIATIONS

    For purposes of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
Control Act of 1985 (Public Law 99-177), as amended, with 
respect to appropriations contained in the act the term 
``program, project, and activity'' shall mean any item for 
which a dollar amount is specified in the act or this report. 
In addition, the definition of ``program, project, and 
activity'' in section 7023 of the act shall apply to the 
accounts listed in that section. In carrying out any 
Presidential sequestration, the Department of State, USAID, and 
other agencies funded by the act shall conform to the 
definition of ``program, project, and activity'' described 
above.
    The Committee includes language in the act making certain 
actions, such as obligations of funds, ``subject to the regular 
notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations.'' 
This language requires a separate notification to the Committee 
15 days prior to the proposed obligation of funds or other 
action that is the subject of this notification requirement, 
regardless of what may be contained in an agency's CBJ or in 
the operating and spend plans required by section 7076 of the 
act. Thus, such CBJs and operating and spend plans do not 
suffice as justification for purposes of satisfying such 
notification requirement.
    Pursuant to section 7034(r)(1) of the act and unless 
expressly provided to the contrary, the term ``appropriate 
congressional committees'' as used in the act and this report 
means the Committees on Appropriations and Foreign Relations of 
the Senate and the Committees on Appropriations and Foreign 
Affairs of the House of Representatives.
    Pursuant to section 7034(r)(6) of the act and for purposes 
of this report, the term ``extremist organizations'' means the 
Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [ISIL]; organizations 
affiliated with ISIL; a foreign organization that is determined 
to be engaged in terrorist activity; and other entities 
designated as a foreign terrorist organization [FTO] pursuant 
to section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 
1189). The term ``extremist'' means an individual affiliated 
with an extremist organization, and the term ``extremism'' 
means the advocacy or use of violence by such organization or 
individual to achieve political or religious goals.
    Section 7034(r)(8) of the act defines the term ``spend 
plan'', which the Committee requires for certain countries, 
programs, and accounts. The Committee is aware that the level 
of detail required by a spend plan may be equivalent to, and in 
some cases may exceed, that of notifications. Not later than 30 
days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State and the 
USAID Administrator shall consult with the Committee on spend 
plan and notification requirements.

                       MONITORING AND EVALUATION

    Humanitarian Aid Cost-Effectiveness.--Section 7034(m) of 
the act seeks to enhance the effectiveness of humanitarian aid 
through regular and accurate feedback data from implementing 
partners, which should include the use of mobile technology to 
facilitate real-time data. Such information should be used to 
improve the delivery and effectiveness of humanitarian 
assistance.
    Foreign Assistance Data Review Findings Report.--Not later 
than 90 days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State 
shall submit a report to the Committee detailing steps taken to 
implement the recommendations of the Foreign Assistance Data 
Review Findings Report, including to develop a standard foreign 
assistance management business process, identification of new 
system requirements to meet such process, and a plan for 
developing standards and governance to integrate such process.
    Report on Monitoring and Evaluation of Fiscal Year 2015 
Programs.--The Committee underscores the importance of 
monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of foreign 
assistance programs. Independent evaluations, including impact 
evaluations where appropriate, of such programs are an 
important method for improving performance and ensuring that 
taxpayer resources are spent efficiently and effectively. 
However, the quality of foreign assistance program evaluations 
varies widely, and there are inadequate processes in place to 
ensure that the findings and recommendations of evaluations 
inform program design, policy decisions, and budget 
allocations. Moreover, monitoring and evaluation processes do 
not always incorporate sufficient local data, feedback and 
participation, and comparable standards are not consistently 
applied across the full range of foreign assistance programs.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, and 
following consultation with the Committee, the Secretary of 
State shall conduct a review of the quality of program 
evaluations and the utilization of such evaluations in programs 
conducted by Department of State regional bureaus with funds 
appropriated in fiscal year 2015, and publish the findings on 
the Department Web site.
    Results-Based Assistance.--The Committee recommends that 
the USAID Administrator consider expanding results-based 
foreign assistance, such as cash on delivery assistance and 
non-cost-based financing. Not later than 90 days after 
enactment of the act, the USAID Administrator shall consult 
with the Committee on any current or planned activities 
utilizing such methods and recommend ways to expand such use, 
if appropriate.
    Rule Making.--The Committee notes the Department of State 
may have, at times, loosely interpreted the Administrative 
Procedures Act of 1946 (5 U.S.C. 551 et seq.) when using an 
exception to the publishing of a proposed rulemaking related to 
a function of foreign affairs. The Committee notes that the 
exception should only be used if public rulemaking provisions 
``would clearly provoke definitely undesirable international 
consequences''.

                           MULTI-YEAR PLEDGES

    The Committee directs the heads of U.S. departments and 
agencies funded by the act to refrain from making any pledge 
for future year funds for any multilateral or bilateral program 
unless such pledge was: included in an act making 
appropriations for the Department of State, foreign operations, 
and related programs or previously authorized by an act of 
Congress; previously justified in a CBJ, including projected 
future year costs; or the subject of prior consultation with 
the Committee at least 7 days in advance of the pledge.

                       NOTWITHSTANDING AUTHORITY

    Notwithstanding authority included in any provision of the 
act shall not be interpreted to exclude the requirements of 
such provision.
    The Secretary of State and USAID Administrator, as 
appropriate, shall inform the Committee of the use of 
notwithstanding authority in the submission of country 
notifications required by section 7015(f) of the act.

                REPORTS, NOTIFICATIONS, AND SPEND PLANS

    To save paper and printing costs, the Committee directs 
that one copy of reports, congressional notifications, and 
correspondence be jointly addressed to the chairs of the 
Committee and subcommittee, and one copy jointly addressed to 
the ranking members of the Committee and subcommittee. Reports 
required by the Committee may also be electronically 
transmitted and posted on agency Web sites, in accordance with 
section 7077(a) of the act.
    Congressional notifications submitted by the Secretary of 
State and USAID Administrator for funds that are being 
reallocated prior to initial obligation, reprogrammed, or 
reobligated after deobligation, should, to the maximum extent 
practicable, contain detailed information about the source of 
such funds and why such funds are no longer intended to be used 
as previously justified.
    The submission by the Department of State and USAID of one 
spend plan per account for each program for which a spend plan 
has been required has not achieved the intended purpose of 
improving oversight of funds. Spend plans submitted pursuant to 
section 7076 of the act shall be submitted in the form of a 
single, comprehensive spend plan for each program identified, 
and should include all intended sources of funds made available 
by the act for such program.
    Pursuant to section 7076(b)(1)(A) of the act, the following 
regional security initiatives shall be addressed in the spend 
plans required by such section: the Caribbean Basin Security 
Initiative; the Central America Regional Security Initiative; 
the Trans-Sahara Counterterrorism Partnership; the Partnership 
for Regional East Africa Counterterrorism; the West Africa 
Regional Security Initiative; the Global Peace Operations 
Initiative, including Africa Contingency Operations Training 
and Assistance; the African Peacekeeping Rapid Response 
Partnership; the Africa Conflict Stabilization and Border 
Security program; the African Military Education Program; the 
Africa Maritime Security Initiative; the Security Governance 
Initiative; the Africa Regional Counterterrorism Fund; the 
Counterterrorism Partnerships Fund; the Regional Strategic 
Initiative; the African Union Rapid Deployment Capability; and 
the Southeast Asia Maritime Security Law Enforcement 
Initiative.

 REPROGRAMMING GUIDELINES AND SECTION 653(A) OF THE FOREIGN ASSISTANCE 
                              ACT OF 1961

    Section 7019 of the act requires that amounts designated in 
the respective tables referenced in this report shall be made 
available in such designated amounts and shall be the basis of 
the report required by section 653(a) of the FAA, where 
applicable. The section also includes limited authority to 
deviate from such specified amounts. In addition, section 7015 
of the act clarifies reprogramming and notification 
requirements for funds made available by the act. Proposed 
deviations from tables in title I of this report are subject to 
such section. The Department of State, USAID, and other 
agencies funded in the act are directed to notify the Committee 
of any reprogramming, required by sections 7015 and 7019 of the 
act, at the most detailed level of the CBJ, the act, or this 
report.

                    COUNTRIES AND ISSUES OF CONCERN

    The Committee includes countries and issues of concern 
below. All tables are subject section 7019 of the act.

                              AFGHANISTAN

    The Committee recommends $1,144,322,000 for diplomatic 
operations in Afghanistan under the D&CP; and ESCM headings, an 
amount equal to the President's budget request.
    The Committee recommends $724,580,000 for assistance for 
Afghanistan. Prior fiscal year carryover funds for assistance 
for Afghanistan are projected to total $1,642,171,000.
    Section 7044(a) of the act continues directives and 
conditions on U.S. Embassy operations in, and assistance for, 
Afghanistan in a manner similar to the prior fiscal year.
    Section 7044(a)(2)(E) of the act is a new provision 
restricting direct government-to-government assistance for the 
Government of Afghanistan unless the Secretary of State reports 
to the Committee that companies and organizations that 
implement U.S. foreign assistance programs in Afghanistan in a 
manner consistent with U.S. laws and regulations are not 
subjected by such government to taxes and fees in contravention 
of diplomatic and other agreements. Despite engagement by the 
Department of State on this matter, the Committee remains 
concerned that the Government of Afghanistan continues to 
assess improper taxes on U.S. assistance, including reportedly 
seeking $200,000,000 in back taxes.
    Section 7034(k)(12) of the act includes modifications to 
the Afghan Allies Protection Act, 2009 (division F of Public 
Law 111-8), as contained in the President's budget request.
    The Committee expects that gender-related programs will 
remain a top priority of the Governments of the United States 
and Afghanistan, particularly those activities that prioritize 
women's participation in political and security processes and 
programs, and that address gender-based violence. The Committee 
supports the inclusion of women in reconciliation negotiations 
and reintegration efforts. The Committee urges implementation 
of the 2015 National Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security 
developed by the Government of Afghanistan, and supports 
programs funded by the act to enable civil society to monitor 
its implementation.
    The Committee recommends $10,000,000 for the Afghan 
Civilian Assistance Program.
    The Committee supports funds for programs to revive 
traditional Afghan crafts and promote small business 
opportunities for artisans, particularly women, to be awarded 
on an open and competitive basis. The Committee recommends that 
assistance to promote the economic empowerment of women be made 
available as grants to Afghan and international organizations, 
to the maximum extent practicable.

                          ATROCITY PREVENTION

    The Committee recommends not less than $500,000 under the 
D&CP; heading and $250,000 under the USAID OE heading to train 
personnel at the Department of State and USAID in genocide and 
mass atrocity prevention and to support full participation in 
the Atrocities Prevention Board [APB], including staff to carry 
out the responsibilities of the APB in accordance with 
Presidential Study Directive 10 and Executive Order 13729, ``A 
Comprehensive Approach to Atrocity Prevention and Response'' 
(May 18, 2016). The Under Secretary of State for Civilian 
Security, Democracy, and Human Rights shall administer such 
funds.
    In addition, section 7033(d) of the act recommends not less 
than $25,000,000 under the INCLE and ESF headings for an 
Atrocities Prevention Fund for programs to prevent atrocities 
and to implement the recommendations of the APB, including with 
respect to the evaluation required by section 7033(d) of the 
Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs 
Appropriations Act, 2016 (division K of Public Law 114-113). 
The uses of such funds shall be the responsibility of such 
Under Secretary.

                               BANGLADESH

    The Committee recommends $171,876,000 for assistance for 
Bangladesh.
    The Committee notes with alarm the killings of secular 
writers, bloggers, and foreigners in Bangladesh by extremists. 
The Committee believes that if not effectively addressed, this 
violence could spread to areas of Southeast Asia that may be 
receptive to narratives of violence and intolerance, including 
in Rakhine State, Burma and Southern Thailand, with tragic 
consequences.
    The Committee recommends not less than $3,000,000 under the 
DA heading for programs to strengthen the capacity of the 
Government of Bangladesh to inspect and enforce garment factory 
safety standards, and improve labor conditions in Bangladesh by 
strengthening the capacity of independent workers' 
organizations in readymade garment, shrimp, and fish export 
sectors. The Committee directs the USAID Administrator to 
consult with the heads of other relevant U.S. Government 
departments and agencies, including the Department of Labor's 
Bureau of International Labor Affairs [ILAB] and the Office of 
the U.S. Trade Representative [USTR].
    The Committee notes the need for greater transparency and 
accountability in Bangladesh, particularly within the judicial, 
law enforcement, and electoral sectors, and recommends 
$8,000,000 under the DA heading for democracy programs for that 
country.
    The Committee notes the use of the International Criminal 
Tribunal, established by the ruling Awami League government, to 
sentence to death individuals convicted of crimes dating to the 
1971 war of independence after trials widely criticized as 
unfair. Prior to the obligation of assistance for the central 
Government of Bangladesh, the Secretary of State shall submit 
to the appropriate congressional committees a report detailing 
actions taken by such government to ensure such trials meet 
international standards of independence and fairness.

                                 BURMA

    Section 7043(b) of the act continues, with minor 
modifications, current requirements regarding assistance for 
Burma. The Committee recognizes the opportunities that exist to 
further development and democracy in Burma following successful 
2015 elections, but remains concerned with the influence of the 
Burmese military over political affairs, and the challenges to 
the new government in securing a meaningful and enduring 
ceasefire, particularly as human rights abuses against ethnic 
minorities continue. The Committee directs the Secretary of 
State to continue to make the plight of the Rohingya minority 
in Burma a priority.
    No assistance for Burma is included in the President's 
budget request under the IMET and the FMF headings, and none is 
provided by the act.

                                CAMBODIA

    Section 7043(c)(1) of the act restricts assistance for 
Cambodia unless the Secretary of State determines and reports 
to the appropriate congressional committees that the Government 
of Cambodia has ceased violence and harassment against civil 
society in Cambodia, including the political opposition. As a 
recipient of significant U.S. and international assistance 
since 1993, the Committee is concerned that the crackdown by 
the Government of Cambodia on civil society and the political 
opposition is intended to undermine prospects for free and fair 
elections in 2017. Further, the Committee directs the Secretary 
of State to press the Government of Cambodia to conduct 
credible investigations into gross human rights violations, 
including those committed in the March 30, 1997 grenade attack 
against the political opposition that injured American Ron 
Abney.
    In addition, section 7043(c)(2) of the act limits a U.S. 
contribution to the Extraordinary Chambers in the Court of 
Cambodia [ECCC] to Case 003, regarding former Khmer Rouge navy 
commander Meas Muth who is implicated in the 1975 Mayaguez 
Incident. The Committee endorses the Department of State's plan 
to cease contributions to the ECCC if a closing order is issued 
for Case 003.

                            CENTRAL AMERICA

    The Committee recommends a total of $650,575,000 to 
implement the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America 
in support of the Plan of the Alliance for Prosperity in the 
Northern Triangle of Central America. The Committee is aware 
that corruption, poverty, drug trafficking, organized crime, 
violence, and impunity are deeply rooted in the countries of 
Central America, and will take years to successfully address.
    Section 7045(a) of the act continues, with minor 
modifications, current requirements regarding assistance for 
such countries. The Committee directs the Secretary of State, 
prior to making the certification required in section 
7045(a)(3)(B) of the act, to consult with representatives of 
relevant local and U.S. nongovernmental organizations [NGOs].
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State, after 
consultation with the Committee, to submit a comprehensive, 
multi-year, country-by country spend plan, without which 
effective oversight of assistance for Central America is not 
possible.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to consider 
the central Government of Guatemala's fulfillment of its 
commitment under the financing agreement for the Chixoy 
Reparations Plan in determining assistance levels under this 
heading for Guatemala in support of the Plan of the Alliance 
for Prosperity in the Northern Triangle of Central America.
    The Committee recognizes the success of the International 
Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala [CICIG] in 
strengthening the rule of law by combating corruption and 
impunity, and directs the Secretary of State, in consultation 
with the heads of other relevant U.S. Government agencies, to 
make available to CICIG and the Guatemala Attorney General, if 
requested, any information available to the Secretary that 
could assist in investigations and prosecutions by such 
entities, and to seek similar support for such investigations 
and prosecutions from the heads of other relevant U.S. 
Government departments and agencies. Not later than 90 days 
after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall report 
to the Committee on steps taken to provide such information.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to consider 
the central Government of Honduras' assistance to the victims 
of the May 2012 killings at Ahuas and its support for an 
independent, international investigation of the death of Berta 
Caceres and killings of other social and environmental 
activists in determining assistance levels under this heading 
for Honduras in support of the Plan of the Alliance for 
Prosperity in the Northern Triangle of Central America.
    The Committee recommends not less than $11,000,000 for the 
Office of the Attorney General in Honduras and not less than 
$7,000,000 for the Office of the Attorney General in Guatemala. 
The Committee also supports additional assistance for personal 
security for senior officials in such offices.
    The Committee recommends not less than $500,000 under the 
ESF heading for assistance for the Office of the United Nations 
[U.N.] High Commissioner for Human Rights in Honduras.
    The Committee recommends $4,500,000 under the INCLE heading 
to support the Mission to Support the Fight Against Corruption 
and Impunity in Honduras [MACCIH]. The Committee recognizes 
that MACCIH's ability to successfully carry out its mission 
depends on the willingness of the Government of Honduras to 
fully cooperate with investigations and prosecutions by MACCIH 
and the Honduran Attorney General, and to implement reforms of 
the electoral and judicial systems recommended by MACCIH. The 
Committee encourages such government to support a thorough, 
independent investigation under the joint auspices of the 
Inter-American Human Rights Commission and MACCIH of the March 
3, 2016 assassination of Honduran environmental activist Berta 
Caceres.
    The Committee recommends not less than $10,000,000 to 
support efforts by the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and 
NGOs in Central America and Mexico to improve the capacity of 
national asylum systems to appropriately address the needs of 
repatriated migrants, refugees seeking asylum, and victims of 
human smuggling and trafficking.

                                COLOMBIA

    Section 7045(b) of the act recommends not less than 
$391,253,000 for assistance for Colombia in a manner similar to 
the prior fiscal year, except funds may also be used to 
implement a peace agreement between the Government of Colombia 
and illegal armed groups in accordance with constitutional and 
legal requirements in Colombia, and that has the support of the 
people of Colombia. A pre-obligation requirement for a spend 
plan and additional details on the peace agreement are included 
to ensure the full scope and oversight of such programs are 
understood by both the Department of State and the Committee. 
The Committee understands that the Government of Colombia will 
invest substantial political and economic capital in the 
implementation of the peace agreement.
    The Committee recommends under the ESF heading: $7,000,000 
for Colombian refugees in neighboring countries, to be 
transferred to, and merged with, funds appropriated under the 
MRA heading; and $9,000,000 for programs to protect human 
rights, including not less than $1,000,000 for the Office of 
the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights in Colombia.

                           DEMOCRACY PROGRAMS

    Section 7032 of the act recommends a total of 
$2,576,000,000 for democracy programs from funds appropriated 
under the DA, ESF, AEECA, and INCLE headings, which are 
allocated on a regional basis. Of the funds appropriated by the 
act under the ESF heading, not less than $32,000,000 is 
recommended for the Near East Regional Democracy program. Funds 
appropriated by the act for democracy programs that are made 
available to strengthen democratic institutions abroad shall be 
prioritized for those institutions that demonstrate a 
commitment to democracy and the rule of law, as determined by 
the Secretary of State or the USAID Administrator, as 
appropriate.
    The Secretary of State or the USAID Administrator, as 
appropriate, shall report to the appropriate congressional 
committees within 30 days of a decision to significantly change 
the objectives or content of a democracy program or to close 
such a program due to the increasingly repressive nature of the 
host government. The report shall also include a strategy for 
continuing support for democracy programs, if feasible, and may 
be submitted in classified form, if necessary.
    Not later than 180 days after enactment of the act, the 
USAID Administrator shall submit a report to the Committee 
assessing the implementation of revised ADS Chapter 304 
regulations and Amplifying Guidelines regarding the choice of 
acquisition and assistance instruments for democracy programs, 
including at the mission level. The report shall also include 
information on the training of USAID staff on the revised 
regulations and guidelines.
    Not later than September 30, 2018, the Secretary of State 
and USAID Administrator shall update the reports required by 
section 7032(f)(3) of division K of Public Law 114-113 
regarding the use of contracts, grants, and cooperative 
agreements in the conduct of democracy programs with funds made 
available by the act and division K of Public Law 114-113.
    The Secretary of State shall update the report required by 
section 7032(g)(2) of division K of Public Law 114-113 
regarding the methodology and guidelines established for 
country strategic reviews and the analysis on prerequisite 
political and social conditions for democracy programs in a 
nondemocratic or democratic transitioning country, as 
necessary.
    In implementing section 7032(h) of the act, the USAID 
Administrator shall publish the requested information on the 
agency Web site in a manner that complies with Federal 
Acquisition Regulations.

                    DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO

    Funds appropriated under the ESF heading should support 
economic and agricultural development opportunities, and 
bolster democracy and governance, rule of law, and civil 
society capacity building in the Democratic Republic of the 
Congo [DRC], including in Eastern Congo. The Committee 
recognizes the success of public-private partnerships in 
integrating small farmers into agricultural development 
initiatives in the DRC, and encourages USAID to continue to 
support such partnerships and projects.
    The Committee remains concerned with the ongoing suspension 
of exit permits for children legally adopted from the DRC by 
parents who are U.S. citizens. The Committee urges continued 
engagement by the Department of State with DRC officials and 
legislators until all legally adopted children have been 
granted exit permits.

                      EAST ASIA AND PACIFIC REGION

    The Committee recommends not less than $50,000,000 above 
the President's budget request for assistance for the East Asia 
and Pacific region. The Committee recommends not less than 
$7,750,000 for Southeast Asia Maritime Security under the INCLE 
heading.
    Section 7043 of the act provides strategic direction for 
assistance for the East Asia and Pacific region, and 
underscores continued support by the Committee for the 
advancement of democracy and the rule of law throughout the 
region. While the Committee recognizes recent democratic 
successes through elections in Burma and Taiwan, the 
deterioration of personal rights and freedoms in Thailand and 
Cambodia, in particular, remains a concern.
    The Committee notes the aggressive actions by the People's 
Republic of China [PRC] to assert claims to disputed 
territories in the South China Sea, including by intercepting 
U.S. reconnaissance aircraft. The Committee encourages the 
Secretary of State to continue to publicly condemn the PRC's 
militarization of the South China Sea.
    The Committee directs the Broadcasting Board of Governors 
[BBG] to submit to the Committee a report, concurrent with the 
operating plan, detailing the fiscal year 2017 BBG programs 
that are attributable to the Asia Rebalancing Initiative, 
including the costs of such programs.

                                 EGYPT

    Section 7041(a) of the act recommends up to $75,000,000 for 
assistance for Egypt under the ESF heading and $1,300,000,000 
under the FMF heading. Conditions on assistance for Egypt are 
similar to the prior fiscal year, except that the Committee 
provides authority to reprogram funds under the ESF heading in 
the act and prior acts making appropriations for the Department 
of State, foreign operations, and related programs if the 
Secretary of State determines that the Government of Egypt is 
prohibiting, or otherwise interfering with, the conduct or 
operations of programs supported by such funds. The Committee 
is concerned with reports that cooperation between the 
Governments of the United States and Egypt on non-security 
programs is lacking, resulting in an ESF pipeline totaling 
$328,000,000 in unobligated funds, and $675,000,000 in 
obligated but unexpended funds.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\According to the Department of State, the unobligated and 
obligated/unexpended totals are current as of March 31, 2016.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Despite repeated efforts to encourage political and 
economic reforms and public affirmations by the Government of 
Egypt of the importance of the U.S.-Egyptian partnership, the 
Committee is dismayed that many NGOs remain unregistered and 
are prevented from working in Egypt for the benefit of the 
Egyptian people; the June 2013 political charges against 
democracy NGOs fester; and a full accounting of all individuals 
in Egyptian custody has yet to occur.
    The Committee is also concerned with the increasing 
repression in Egypt aimed at silencing critics of the 
government.
    Section 7041(a)(2)(A) of the act recommends not less than 
$10,000,000 for Egyptian students with high financial need to 
attend not-for-profit institutions of higher education that 
meet standards equivalent to those required for U.S. 
institutional accreditation by a regional accrediting agency 
recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Students should 
be eligible for scholarships based on need, outstanding 
academic record, and leadership potential to contribute to the 
long-term political, economic, and social development of Egypt. 
The curriculum of such institutions should encourage critical 
thinking and be taught in the English language.
    Section 7034(o)(3) of the act provides authority for an 
enterprise fund for Egypt.
    The Committee notes the extension of legal protection 
regarding the conviction of democracy NGOs issued by the Cairo 
Criminal Court on June 4, 2013 was made permanent by section 
7034(d)(4) of division K of Public of Public Law 114-113.

    The Committee recommends $100,325,000 for assistance for 
Georgia, including $10,000,000 above the President's budget 
request under the FMF heading.
     Section 7070(c) of the act includes new limitations and 
restrictions on assistance regarding the Russian occupation of 
Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia. The Committee 
remains concerned with continued Russian aggression toward 
Georgia, and efforts to undermine its democratic development, 
including through the use of hostile propaganda. The Committee 
underscores support for Georgia's sovereignty and territorial 
integrity.

                        GLOBAL INTERNET FREEDOM

    The Committee recommends $50,500,000 for programs to 
promote Internet freedom globally. The Committee directs the 
Department of State and BBG to make any new Internet freedom 
tool or technique funded in fiscal year 2016 available for a 
peer review by an independent organization to evaluate the 
comparative value of such tool or technique over others 
previously developed.
    Section 7078 of the act provides a framework for global 
Internet freedom programs funded by the act. The Committee 
believes that effective Internet freedom programs must support 
the goals and objectives of clear and comprehensive strategies, 
including the President's International Strategy for Cyberspace 
(May 2011) and the Department of State International Cyberspace 
Policy Strategy (March 2016). Such programs are comprised of 
interdependent components, including the provision of tools and 
techniques that enable individuals to use circumvention 
technology to access and disseminate information; training for 
activists on protection and detection avoidance; and 
coordinated civil society efforts to challenge legislation, 
regulations, and laws that seek to restrict Internet freedom.
    Circumvention technology alone does not further Internet 
freedom abroad, and the Committee acknowledges the difficulties 
in monitoring and conducting oversight of the use of such 
technology. For this reason, the Committee requires that spend 
plans submitted by the Department of State and BBG pursuant to 
section 7078(c) of the act include a description of safeguards 
to ensure that circumvention technologies are not used for 
illicit purposes, such as coordinating terrorist activities or 
online sexual exploitation of children.
    The Committee recognizes that BBG language services create 
programs for the Internet and social media platforms, and work 
with local audiences, journalists, and broadcasters to 
circumvent Internet censorship through the production and 
distribution of guides on circumvention techniques, Quick 
Response [QR] codes to directly link to blocked Web sites, and 
training journalists on circumvention tools.
    The Committee recommends $70,177,000 for BBG program 
delivery costs (including shortwave, mediumwave, FM, satellite, 
Internet freedom and affiliates), which is 9.2 percent of the 
total amount recommended for IBO. The Committee recommendation 
for the Internet freedom program is $12,500,000, which is 17.8 
percent of the program delivery budget.
    The Committee intends that funds recommended for the BBG 
Internet freedom program to be in addition to funds for 
International Broadcasting Bureau [IBB] and Radio Free Asia 
[RFA] employees overseeing such program. The Committee 
recommends $1,200,000 for such RFA employees and the 
President's budget request for such IBB employees.
    The BBG Chief Executive Officer [CEO] is directed to 
include in the operating plan required by section 7076(a) of 
the act total BBG resources, including funds and employees, 
supporting digital programs available on the Internet, 
including language service staff, digital teams, and technical 
support, and $12,500,000 for the Internet freedom program. The 
BBG CEO is to consult with the Committee prior to providing 
this information.
    The Committee directs the Department of State, USAID, and 
the BBG to prioritize Internet freedom programs funded by the 
act to countries which obstruct Internet access, through 
legislation, regulation, and firewalls.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State and the BBG CEO shall jointly provide the 
Committee an evaluation of the effectiveness of Internet 
freedom programs in the PRC supported by the Department of 
State and BBG, including an estimate of the number of 
individuals using tools developed through such programs, and an 
analysis of the challenges presented by the PRC's continued 
efforts through laws and regulations to restrict access to 
information on the Internet.

                           GREAT LAKES REGION

    Section 7042(a) of the act restricts funds appropriated 
under the IMET heading for assistance to a central government 
of the Great Lakes Region (Burundi, DRC, Rwanda, and Uganda) 
until the Secretary of State determines and reports that such 
government is not facilitating or participating in 
destabilizing activities in a neighboring country, including 
aiding and abetting armed groups. In evaluating whether a 
country is engaging in such activities, the Secretary should 
also consider whether such government is taking steps to 
protect the rights of civil society, including opposition 
political parties.
    The Committee recommends support for local and 
international NGOs to conduct oversight of the trafficking in 
conflict minerals out of Eastern Congo to Rwanda and Uganda.

                    INTERNATIONAL RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

    Section 7033(a) of the act recommends not less than 
$8,000,000 for the Office of International Religious Freedom, 
including not less than $6,000,000 for the Ambassador-at-Large 
for International Religious Freedom (the Ambassador-at-Large), 
and not less than $2,000,000 for the Special Envoy to Promote 
Religious Freedom of Religious Minorities in the Near East and 
South Central Asia, including for support staff. This is 
$2,000,000 above the President's budget request.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of the Ambassador-
at-Large to U.S. foreign policy interests, and encourages the 
Secretary of State to ensure that the Ambassador-at-Large has 
both the resources and authority necessary to advance 
international religious freedom as an important element of U.S. 
foreign policy.
    Section 7033(b) of the act recommends not less than 
$10,000,000 under the Human Rights and Democracy Fund [HRDF] 
for international religious freedom programs and not less than 
$10,000,000 under the ESF heading for programs to protect 
vulnerable and persecuted religious minorities. The Secretary 
of State is required to develop a plan for transitional 
justice, reconciliation, and persecuted religious minorities in 
the Middle East and North Africa, and the Committee recommends 
not less than $5,000,000 under the ESF heading to implement 
such plan, to be matched to the maximum extent practicable from 
sources other than the U.S. Government and which are in 
addition to funds otherwise available for such purposes. Funds 
are the responsibility of the Ambassador-at-Large, in 
consultation with other relevant U.S. Government officials.
    The Committee recommends not less than $1,000,000 for 
programs to combat anti-Semitism abroad. The Committee requests 
the Secretary of State to consult with the appropriate 
congressional committees on plans to counter anti-Semitism, 
racism, and intolerance in Europe, including through new 
initiatives supported by the Organization for Security and 
Cooperation in Europe.
    The Committee recommends funds for the development of an 
international religious freedom curriculum for Foreign Service 
Officers, particularly entry level diplomats, to be 
incorporated into mandatory orientation training programs. The 
curriculum should include an explanation of the importance of 
international religious freedom to U.S. foreign policy, and 
case studies demonstrating how programs supporting 
international religious freedom further national interests. In 
addition, Foreign Service Officers should be trained on 
appropriate information collection methods regarding religious 
persecution that do not further endanger at-risk populations.
    The Committee recognizes that democracy and development are 
essential to ameliorate conditions that give rise to 
intolerance and religious persecution, particularly of minority 
groups. The Committee encourages the Department of State and 
USAID to strengthen the rule of law and further economic 
opportunities, to the extent practicable and as appropriate, 
for communities impacted by conflict. The Committee requests 
the Secretary of State to consult on the effectiveness of 
judicial training programs for such communities, particularly 
those that rely on traditional, tribal, or religious laws. The 
Committee supports the participation of refugees and IDPs in 
such training programs to create the foundations of security 
and stability for communities impacted by conflict when such 
persons return.
    The Committee continues to support programs to assist 
vulnerable Iraqi ethnic and religious minorities, including the 
Christian community, particularly in the Nineveh Plains.
    Not later than 30 days after the enactment of the act, the 
Ambassador-at-Large shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees regarding coordination between the 
Office of International Religious Freedom and USTR on religious 
freedom in Vietnam pursuant to section 102(a)(13) of the 
Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability 
Act of 2015 (Public Law 114-26).
    The Committee recognizes the importance of the proper 
designations of countries of particular concern [CPC] for 
religious freedom, and urges the President and the Secretary of 
State to update the CPC list annually. If the situation in a 
given country calls for such country to be designated as a CPC 
for religious freedom prior to the annual review, the Committee 
urges the President to make the designation and promptly update 
the CPC list. If the U.S. Commission on International Religious 
Freedom [USCIRF] recommends a country for CPC designation, and 
such country is not designated as a CPC, the Secretary of State 
shall provide the rationale for such action to the appropriate 
congressional committees within 30 days of such decision.
    The Committee recognizes that the United States has moved 
to normalize relations with Cuba and strengthen ties with India 
despite both countries remaining on USCIRF's Tier 2 list, which 
consists of countries that require close monitoring due to 
violations of religious liberty. The Committee directs the 
Secretary of State to make religious freedom in Cuba, India, 
and other countries on the Tier 2 list a priority.

                                  IRAN

    Section 7041(b) of the act continues provisions regarding 
Iran that are similar to the prior fiscal year.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of ensuring that 
Iran's nuclear weapons program remains inactive and appropriate 
steps are taken in response to any violation of the terms of 
the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
    Not later than 180 days after the enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall update the report required under this 
heading in Senate Report 114-79 regarding steps taken to 
implement section 415 of the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria 
Human Rights Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-158).

                                  IRAQ

    The Committee recommends $1,230,965,000 for diplomatic 
operations in Iraq under the D&CP; and ESCM headings, an amount 
equal to the President's budget request.
    Funds made available for the Kurdistan Region of Iraq [KRI] 
under the ESF heading shall be made available for programs to 
further economic reforms, diversify the economy, develop 
agricultural opportunities, and support the creation of small 
and medium-sized enterprises. Additional assistance is 
available under the IDA and MRA headings to mitigate the impact 
of internally displaced persons [IDPs] and refugees in the KRI.
    The Committee expects the administration to conduct 
effective monitoring of the use in Iraq of U.S. training and 
equipment recommended under the FMF heading.
    Authority for loan guarantees and a direct loan for Iraq is 
included in sections 7034(o)(1) and (2) of the act, 
respectively.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the Committee on 
the actions taken by the Government of Iraq to ensure the 
administrative, political, cultural, and education rights of 
various nationalities in Iraq, in accordance with article 25 of 
the Iraqi Constitution, and on steps taken to create a Nineveh 
Plains province. The report shall detail U.S. efforts to help 
ensure the protection of minority groups in Iraq, and an 
assessment of obstacles in Iraq to the establishment of such a 
province.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the heads of other 
relevant U.S. departments and agencies, shall submit to the 
Committee, in classified form if necessary, a strategy for the 
provision of assistance directly to certain military and 
security forces fighting ISIL in northern Iraq, including the 
Kurdish Peshmerga and the Nineveh Plain Protection Units. The 
report shall also include a detailed description of the 
procedures for vetting recipients of such assistance and 
monitoring its use.
    Not later than 30 days after the enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees assessing whether the Government of 
Iraq is taking appropriate and sufficient actions to ensure the 
safety and security of Iranian dissidents housed at Camp 
Liberty, Iraq.
    The Committee does not include section 7041(c)(2) of 
division K of Public Law 114-113 regarding restrictions on 
construction, rehabilitation, or other improvements to U.S. 
diplomatic facilities in Iraq for which no land-use agreement 
has been entered into by the Governments of the United States 
and Iraq, except if necessary to protect such facilities, or 
the security, health, and welfare of U.S. personnel. As only 
the facility in Basrah lacks such land-use agreement and the 
President's budget request for Basrah proposes only to address 
improvements regarding the security, health, and welfare of 
U.S. personnel, the Committee does not continue the prior 
fiscal year restrictions.

                                 ISRAEL

    The Committee recommends $3,400,000,000 for assistance for 
Israel under the FMF heading, which is $300,000,000 above the 
President's budget request. The Committee supports such 
additional assistance for Israel given the persistent 
deteriorating security situation in the Middle East.
    The Committee recommends $7,500,000 for refugee 
resettlement in Israel under the MRA heading, to be awarded 
through an open and competitive process.
    Section 7048(c) of the act requires the Secretary of State 
to certify that U.S. participation in the U.N. Human Right 
Council is in the national interest, and that the Council is 
taking credible steps to remove Israel as a permanent agenda 
item. The Committee remains concerned with the anti-Israel bias 
of the Council, particularly as reflected in the March 2016 
resolution on business enterprises engaged in Israeli 
settlements (A/HRC/31/L.39).

                                 JORDAN

    The Committee recommends $1,000,000,000 for assistance for 
Jordan. Additional assistance is available under the IDA and 
MRA headings to address needs arising from refugees in Jordan 
from neighboring countries, including for communities hosting 
such refugees.
    Section 7034(o)(1) of the act includes authority for loan 
guarantees for Jordan.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to update the 
report required in section 7041(d)(2) of division K of Public 
Law 114-113 regarding donor contributions to the Jordan 
Response Plan for the Syria Crisis 2016-2018 not later than 90 
days after enactment of the act.

                                LEBANON

    Section 7041(e) of the act conditions assistance for 
Lebanon in a manner similar to the prior fiscal year.
    The Committee notes that sections 620A and 620G of the FAA 
restrict assistance to any country the Secretary of State 
determines has repeatedly supported acts of international 
terrorism and require the withholding of assistance to the 
government of any country that provides assistance to such 
country so determined by the Secretary, respectively. Hezbollah 
has been designated a FTO pursuant to section 219 of the 
Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189), as amended, 
since 1997. The Committee again expects that no funds made 
available by the act will directly or indirectly benefit or 
otherwise legitimize Hezbollah, including within the Government 
of Lebanon, or any other FTO operating in Lebanon.
    The Committee recommends $14,000,000 for scholarships for 
students in Lebanon with high financial need at not-for-profit 
educational institutions in Lebanon that meet standards 
comparable to those required for U.S. accreditation, to be 
awarded on a competitive basis, of which up to $2,000,000 is 
for a pilot program at such institutions to establish a degree 
and/or certificate program for refugees who have completed 
secondary education.

    Section 7041(f) of the act recommends $20,500,000 for 
assistance for Libya for programs to strengthen governing 
institutions, improve border security, and promote democracy 
and stability, and for activities to address the humanitarian 
needs of the people of Libya. The act continues prior year 
conditions and limitations regarding cooperation by the 
Government of Libya in the investigation of the September 2012 
attack on U.S. personnel and facilities in Benghazi, Libya; the 
use of funds for infrastructure projects; and a certification 
requirement on oversight prior to the obligation of funds.
    In submitting the certification required in section 
7041(f)(3) of the act, the Secretary of State shall also 
include a detailed description of the vetting procedures used 
for recipients of assistance for security forces provided by 
the act.

             NEAR EAST AND AFRICA RELIEF AND RECOVERY FUND

    Section 7024 of the act is a new provision establishing a 
Near East and Africa Relief and Recovery Fund [NEARRF] under 
the ESF heading to address short and medium-term assistance 
needs in areas liberated from extremists. The Committee 
believes that absent such funds affected governments will be 
unable to hold, repopulate, and redevelop cleared areas. The 
Secretary of State shall submit a spend plan to the Committee 
prior to the obligation of funds, as well as establish 
mechanisms for oversight. The NEARRF is subject to the regular 
notification procedures of the Committee.

                              NORTH KOREA

    The Committee remains concerned with North Korea's 
continued belligerent actions and pursuit of nuclear weapons 
capabilities that directly threaten regional stability. The 
Committee encourages the Secretary of State to work with Japan, 
South Korea, and the PRC to exert leverage over North Korea, 
particularly to curb the regime's modernization of missile 
delivery systems and nuclear testing.
    Section 7043(d)(1), (2), (3), and (4) of the act continues 
current requirements regarding North Korea, including the 
prohibition on the use of funds appropriated under the ESF 
heading for assistance for the Government of North Korea.
    In addition, the Committee recommends that funds under the 
D&CP; heading may be made available for the consultations 
required in S. 2657 (as introduced in the U.S. Senate on March 
9, 2016) regarding family reunions between Korean Americans and 
North Koreans who were separated following the signing of the 
Korean War Armistice Agreement.
    The Committee recommends continued funds for the 
maintenance of a database of prisons and gulags in North Korea, 
in accordance with section 7032(i) of the Department of State, 
Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 
2014 (division K of Public Law 113-76).
    The Committee recommends the President's budget request for 
Voice of America [VOA] and RFA broadcasts to North Korea, and 
expects BBG to continue broadcasting at not less than the 
fiscal year 2016 levels.

                                PAKISTAN

    The Committee recommends $115,542,000 for diplomatic 
operations in Pakistan under the D&CP; heading, an amount equal 
to the President's budget request.
    The Committee recommends $642,200,000 for assistance for 
Pakistan. Prior fiscal year carryover funds for assistance for 
Pakistan are projected to total $1,370,900,000.
    Section 7044(c) of the act continues current requirements 
regarding assistance for Pakistan, except the waiver provided 
for the Secretary of State certification on Pakistan's 
cooperation on counterterrorism efforts against the Haqqani 
Network and other extremists has been modified from a full 
waiver to one of 85 percent of funds appropriated under the FMF 
heading. The Committee remains concerned with the commitment by 
Pakistan to U.S. strategic objectives in the region, including 
combatting terrorism.
    Section 7044(c)(3)(E) of the act continues to withhold from 
obligation $33,000,000 of funds made available for assistance 
for Pakistan under titles III and IV of the act until the 
Secretary of State reports to the Committee that Dr. Shakil 
Afridi has been released from prison and cleared of all charges 
related to the assistance provided to the United States in 
locating Osama bin Laden.
    Section 7044(e)(2) of the act requires that funds shall be 
made available to enhance the recruitment, professionalism, and 
retention of women in the judiciary, police, and other security 
forces in South and Central Asia, and the Committee recommends 
not less than the fiscal year 2016 level for such purposes in 
Pakistan.
    The Committee recommends $10,000,000 for the Pakistan 
Civilian Assistance Program.

       STABILITY AND DEVELOPMENT IN REGIONS IMPACTED BY EXTREMISM

    Section 7073 of the act is a new provision intended to 
address the multidimensional complexities of combating 
extremism globally through: funds for the Department of State 
and USAID Joint Strategy on Countering Violent Extremism, May 
2016; assistance for countries impacted by significant IDPs and 
refugees and communities that hosts such populations; and 
development of a comprehensive plan by the U.S. Institute of 
Peace to prevent and address the underlying causes of extremism 
in the Sahel, Horn of Africa, and Near East regions.
    The Committee recommends not less than $28,000,000 under 
the ESF heading for targeted assistance for women and girls at 
risk from extremism.
    Not later than September 30, 2017, the Secretary of State, 
in consultation with the heads of other relevant agencies, 
shall submit to the Committee, in classified form if necessary, 
a report describing the activities of the administration to 
counter extremism in fiscal years 2015 and 2016, the amounts 
and sources of funds dedicated to such purposes, and a 
description of mechanisms to coordinate such programs among and 
between departments and agencies and to assess the 
effectiveness of such programs.

                                 SYRIA

    The Committee remains concerned with the impact of the 
Syrian crisis on the people of Syria, the economic and 
political stability of neighboring countries, and growth of 
nationalism and intolerance in Europe and elsewhere.
    Section 7041(h) of the act continues directives and 
requirements regarding the provision of non-lethal assistance 
for Syria, and monitoring and oversight of such assistance, in 
a manner similar to the prior fiscal year. Funds shall be made 
available for programs to build the capacity of Syrian civil 
society, including through core support, to address the 
immediate and long-term needs of the Syrian people inside 
Syria.
    The Committee believes an effective antidote to extremism 
in Syria--in addition to the armed response--is strengthening 
the cultural identity of Syrians, particularly those seeking 
refuge abroad, and the protection of cultural heritage sites. 
The Committee recommends that funds be made available for such 
purposes, and directs the Secretary of State to report to the 
Committee on plans for the use of such funds prior to 
obligation.

                                 TIBET

    Subsection 7043(g) of the act continues, with minor 
modifications, current requirements regarding Tibet.
    The Committee recommends not less than $8,000,000 for 
programs for Tibetan communities in the Tibetan Autonomous 
Region and in other Tibetan communities in the PRC, and not 
less than $6,000,000 for Tibetan communities in India and 
Nepal. These funds are intended to promote and preserve Tibetan 
culture and the resilience of Tibetan communities, and to 
assist in the education and development of the next generation 
of Tibetan leaders in India and Nepal.
    The Committee recommends not less than $1,000,000 under the 
D&CP; heading for the Office of the Special Coordinator for 
Tibetan Issues to carry out the responsibilities detailed in 
section 621(d) of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, 
Fiscal Year 2003 (Public Law 107-228), as well as for convening 
and coordinating meetings for appropriate Federal agencies, 
NGOs, and representatives of the Tibetan leadership in exile.
    The Committee intends that funds for exchange programs with 
participants from Tibet under the ECE heading will be no less 
than the fiscal year 2016 level.
    The Committee supports the President's budget request for 
the VOA and RFA Tibetan services and expects BBG to continue 
broadcasting at not less than the fiscal year 2016 levels.

                                TUNISIA

    The Committee recognizes the obstacles to the entrenchment 
of democracy and the rule of law in Tunisia, and remains 
concerned that extremism could have a lasting foothold in that 
country unless the Government of Tunisia implements meaningful 
economic and educational reforms that benefit the country's 
youth. This will require the full cooperation and participation 
of old regime elites in Tunisia. The Committee is aware of the 
impact that instability and violence in Libya has on Tunisia, 
and encourages regional cooperation with Algeria and Morocco to 
mitigate such threats.
    Section 7041(i) of the act recommends $5,000,000 above the 
President's budget request under the ESF heading for targeted 
democracy programs to engage Tunisian youth in political 
processes and to empower local governance structures to engage 
more fully with respective constituencies.
    Sections 7034(o)(1) and (3) of the act provides authority 
for loan guarantees and an enterprise fund for Tunisia.
    The Committee recognizes the Tunisian American Enterprise 
Fund's [TAEF] achievements to date, and the inherent challenges 
of operating in Tunisia. As TAEF enters a period of substantial 
and frequent investment, some elements within the Government of 
Tunisia may seek to influence TAEF's operations and practices. 
The Committee underscores the independence of TAEF to make its 
own investment decisions, and requests the Board of Directors 
to periodically update the Committee on any efforts by Tunisian 
entities to interfere in TAEF's operations and practices.
    TAEF's annual report on administrative expenses shall be 
submitted to Congress not later than January 31, 2017, for the 
preceding year.

                                UKRAINE

    Section 7046(a) of the act recommends not less than 
$294,857,000 for assistance for Ukraine, an amount equal to the 
President's budget request.
    Section 7034(o)(1) of the act provides authority for loan 
guarantees for Ukraine, although none are anticipated for 
fiscal year 2017. The Committee notes that the President's 
budget request for assistance for Ukraine does not include 
funds to support loan guarantees, which totaled $315,000,000 in 
fiscal year 2016.
    Section 7070 of the act continues a framework for 
assistance for a U.S. response to Russian aggression in Central 
and Eastern Europe and Central Asia, which should be 
coordinated with allies in the region.
    The Committee reiterates the importance of the 
international community to effectively challenge Russia's 
invasion of Ukraine, and continues similar conditions on 
assistance regarding Russian aggression toward Ukraine and 
other countries in section 7070 of the act. The Committee does 
not support assistance to any country that recognizes Russian 
territorial acquisition, including through proxies.
    The Committee again encourages the Secretary of State to 
work with the Government of Ukraine to develop renewable 
sources of energy in order to decrease the ability of Russia to 
influence and control energy supplies to that country. The 
Committee also encourages the Secretary to engage with the 
Government of Ukraine on the feasibility of exporting U.S. 
natural gas to Ukraine to reduce reliance on Russian natural 
gas and help meet Ukraine's energy needs.
    The Committee shares the concern of the administration with 
the negative impacts of corruption on the advancement of 
democracy in Ukraine, and endorses the remarks by the U.S. 
Ambassador to Ukraine at the Odessa Financial Forum in 
September 2015 that corruption ``. . . kills productivity and 
smothers inspiration''. The Committee supports programs to 
combat corruption in Ukraine, including those that empower 
civil society to hold elected officials accountable.

                   UNITED NATIONS PEACEKEEPING REFORM

     The Committee includes a new general provision in the act, 
section 7049, to address sexual exploitation and abuse in U.N. 
peacekeeping missions. Subsection (a) provides funds for reform 
of the model memorandum of understanding between the U.N. and 
peacekeeping contributing countries to include mandatory 
repatriation of offenders and prohibition of countries in 
future peacekeeping mission if the U.N. Secretary-General 
believes inadequate action will be taken by governments to 
address such exploitation and abuse.
    Subsection (b) prohibits assistance to any unit of the 
security forces that has committed acts of sexual exploitation 
and abuse, including while deployed on a U.N. peacekeeping 
mission. If funds are withheld pursuant to such paragraph, the 
Secretary of State may use such funds to assist the foreign 
government of such country to strengthen civilian and military 
investigative capacity and accountability mechanisms to bring 
the responsible members of the security forces to justice.
    Subsection (c) provides the Secretary of State with 
flexibility by providing a waiver for implementation of 
subsection (b), if the Secretary determines that such waiver is 
important to the national security interests of the United 
States.
    The Committee encourages the U.N. to strengthen vetting 
procedures for U.N. peacekeeping personnel, and encourages the 
Secretary of State to consult with the Committee on ways to 
improve such vetting procedures.

                                VIETNAM

    The Committee recommends not less than $20,000,000 for 
activities related to the remediation of dioxin contamination 
sites in Vietnam under the ESF heading, and not less than 
$10,000,000 to expand programs to assist persons with severe 
physical and/or cognitive disabilities in areas sprayed with 
Agent Orange or contaminated with dioxin under the DA heading.
    The Committee recommends assistance for Vietnam under the 
ESF heading for projects to help plan and prepare for, respond 
to, and/or mitigate potential flooding and other impacts of 
climate change along the Mekong River.
    The Committee recommends $55,250,000 for assistance for 
Vietnam under the DA heading, which is $5,000,000 above the 
President's budget request.
    The Committee supports the President's budget request of 
$2,500,000 under the ECE heading and $2,500,000 under the ESF 
heading for Fulbright University Vietnam [FUV], and understands 
that an additional $4,500,000 derived from debt forgiveness 
will be provided for a total of $9,500,000 for FUV in fiscal 
year 2017. The Committee supports FUV, and notes that this is a 
multi-year commitment by the U.S. Government to help establish 
the first university in Vietnam that meets U.S. standards of 
academic freedom. The Committee understands that construction-
related costs will be financed through private donations.
    The Committee recommends not less than $12,500,000 under 
the NADR heading for unexploded ordnance [UXO] clearance 
programs in Vietnam.
    The Committee recommends $1,700,000 for assistance for 
Vietnam under the IMET heading, an increase of $200,000 above 
the President's budget request.
    The Committee recommends $12,000,000 for assistance for 
Vietnam under the FMF heading, an increase of $2,000,000 above 
the President's budget request.

                             WEST BANK/GAZA

    Sections 7013(b), 7035, 7036, 7037, 7038, 7039, 7040, 
7041(j), 7048(c), and 7048(d) of the act continue restrictions 
and conditions on assistance for the West Bank and Gaza, and 
reporting and audit requirements, in a manner similar to the 
prior fiscal year.
    Concurrent with the submission of the report required by 
section 7041(j)(3) of the act regarding payments for acts of 
terrorism, the Secretary of State shall submit a report 
describing actions the Department of State has taken to 
encourage the Palestinian Authority and the Palestine 
Liberation Organization to terminate such payments.
    Section 7041(j)(5) of the act recommends transfer authority 
for up to $35,000,000 of funds appropriated for assistance for 
the West Bank and Gaza under the ESF heading to the INCLE 
heading to support the Palestinian security program. The 
Committee notes that the President's budget request reduced 
this program by $35,000,000 below the fiscal year 2016 enacted 
level. The Committee recognizes the importance of the 
Palestinian security program to the shared interests of the 
United States, Israel, and the Palestinians.
    Not later than 180 days after enactment of the act, the 
United States Security Coordinator for Israel and the 
Palestinian Authority shall submit to the Committee a multi-
year strategy for the provision of security assistance to the 
Palestinian Authority, including details on programs and 
assistance required for the implementation of such strategy.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees describing steps taken by the 
Palestinian Authority to counter incitement of violence.

                                TITLE I

                 DEPARTMENT OF STATE AND RELATED AGENCY

                          DEPARTMENT OF STATE

                   Administration of Foreign Affairs

                    DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR PROGRAMS

Appropriations, 2016....................................  $8,184,721,000

    Enduring operations.................................   6,006,296,000
    Overseas contingency operations.....................   2,654,798,000

    The Committee recommends $6,006,296,000 for Diplomatic and 
Consular Programs, of which up to $1,604,755,000 is for 
Worldwide Security Protection. An additional $2,654,798,000 in 
title VIII of the act under this heading is designated for OCO.
     Human Resources.--The Committee recommends $2,606,152,000 
for all U.S. direct hire salaries at overseas and domestic U.S. 
diplomatic missions. The Committee recommends $136,456,000 for 
Public Diplomacy salary and benefit costs and $55,138,000 for 
the salary and benefit costs of the Bureau of Educational and 
Cultural Affairs [ECA] employees under this heading instead of 
under the ECE heading, as contained in the President's budget 
request.
    Given limited resources, the act does not fund all of the 
new positions requested for fiscal year 2017. The Committee 
urges the Department of State to meet emergent staffing 
requirements from within present resources by reallocating 
unfilled positions or reassigning staff, and recognizes that 
such reallocations are reflected in the President's budget 
request. Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall consult with the Committee on the 
prioritization of new positions, including those created 
through a reallocation of unfilled positions.
    While the Committee supports integrated graphics in the 
analysis and reports prepared by the Bureau of Intelligence and 
Research [INR], the act does not fund the new personnel or 
contractors requested for graphics and data visualization. The 
Committee directs the Department to find more cost effective 
ways to integrate graphics and data visualization into INR's 
analysis and reports.
    Overseas Programs.--The Committee recommends $1,477,436,000 
for the operational programs of Department of State regional 
bureaus, which are responsible for the conduct and 
implementation of U.S. foreign policy through bilateral and 
multilateral engagements. Funds support U.S. embassies, 
consulates, and other diplomatic posts worldwide, and provide 
myriad services to U.S. citizens living, working, studying, and 
traveling abroad, including those who are arrested and 
imprisoned in foreign countries.
    The Committee expects the Secretary of State to continue 
funding overseas inflation and Locally Employed Staff [LES] 
wage increases, including, as necessary, funds to annualize 
increases provided in fiscal year 2016, through funds made 
available in the Buying Power Maintenance account.
    Diplomatic Policy and Support.--The Committee recommends 
$759,125,000 for the operational programs of the Department of 
State functional bureaus to provide overall policy direction, 
coordination, and program management among U.S. missions 
abroad. The Committee recommends the budget request for the 
Office for Global Women's Issues within the Office of the 
Secretary, the Document Review Unit within the Office of the 
Legal Adviser, and the Freedom of Information Act program 
within the Bureau of Administration.
    The Committee notes that no new positions related to the 
Green Climate Fund [GCF] were included in the President's 
budget request, and none are provided by the act.
    Security Programs.--The Committee recommends $1,163,583,000 
for the operation of security programs, including 
$1,141,338,000 for WSP to protect diplomatic personnel, 
overseas diplomatic missions, information, residences, and 
domestic facilities. An additional $463,417,000 is included 
within the Human Resources function for salaries for a total of 
$1,604,755,000 for WSP in this title. The Committee recommends 
an additional $2,109,934,000 for OCO costs for WSP.

                            EMBASSY SECURITY

    The Committee recommends a total of $6,071,348,000 for 
Embassy security, an amount equal to the President's budget 
request for WSP under this and the ESCM headings. Funds are 
allocated according to the following table:

  from other Federal agencies for construction and maintenance of
  overseas diplomatic facilities.

    Section 7004(f) of the act provides the Secretary of State 
with the necessary flexibility to transfer funds between the 
D&CP; and ESCM headings in titles I and VIII to implement the 
recommendation of the Benghazi Accountability Review Board, or 
to prevent or respond to security situations and requirements 
at diplomatic facilities abroad, following consultation with 
the Committee. This authority is in addition to any transfer 
authority available under any other provision of law.
    Section 7006(b) of the act strengthens oversight of the 
local guard force at a critical post, and provides that the 
costs of such oversight in subsequent fiscal years are 
supported through the International Cooperative Administrative 
Support Services [ICASS] program. The Secretary of State is 
directed to work with the Office of Management and Budget [OMB] 
to ensure adequate funds are included in the President's budget 
request for subsequent fiscal years for the ICASS costs of 
relevant departments and agencies, including the Department of 
State.

                             PROGRAM ISSUES

    Arctic Council Ministerial Meeting.--The Committee 
recommends the President's budget request to support the 
hosting of the 2017 Arctic Council Ministerial Meeting, to be 
held in Fairbanks, Alaska in May 2017.
    Columbia River Treaty.--The Committee is aware that the 
Department of State continues to finalize U.S. policies 
regarding the modernization of the Columbia River Treaty based 
on the ``U.S. Entity Regional Recommendation for the Future of 
the Columbia River Treaty after 2024'', and understands that 
negotiations with Canada must take place in calendar year 2016 
in order for the new agreement to be implemented by 2026. The 
Committee urges the Department of State to complete the 
Circular 175 procedure and initiate formal negotiations with 
Canada.
    Consular and Border Security Programs Account.--Section 
7082 of the act establishes the Consular and Border Security 
Programs account in the U.S. Treasury, as proposed in the 
President's budget request. The new account will make financial 
reporting of certain fees more readily available to Congress, 
OMB, and the Department of State. In the past, such fees were 
tracked under the D&CP; account.
    Cultural Heritage.--The Committee recommends $6,500,000 for 
Cultural Heritage programs, including not less than five large-
scale projects, and up to $500,000 for emergency response to 
stabilize and protect from further desecration cultural 
heritage sites and antiquities that have been damaged by armed 
conflict, natural disaster, or the actions of extremists. The 
Committee recognizes the public diplomacy role of this program, 
as well as its contribution to preserving some of the world's 
irreplaceable cultural heritage sites and antiquities. As in 
the past, the Department of State should consult with the 
Committee prior to obligating funds for such purposes.
    The Committee recommends $1,000,000 for the Cultural 
Antiquities Task Force, which may be used for grants as 
authorized in section 7034(d)(3) of the act.
    Cyber Issues.--The Committee recommends not less than the 
President's budget request for the Office of the Coordinator 
for Cyber Issues.
    Department of State Workforce Diversity.--The Committee 
recommends the President's budget request for the expansion of 
the Department of State workforce diversity programs, including 
the Pickering and Rangel Fellowship Programs and expanded 
partnerships between the Department's internship program and 
community-based organizations.
    Directorate of Defense Trade Controls.--The Committee 
directs the Secretary of State to make publicly available on 
the Department of State Web site information regarding

global economic interests and U.S. leadership abroad. The 
Committee encourages the Department of State to consider U.S. 
membership in the intergovernmental Bureau of International 
Expositions and coordinate with the Department of Commerce in

Program.--Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, 
the USAID Administrator shall submit to the Committee a report 
detailing: the cost, number of personnel, and timeline required

language-designated positions; changes USAID senior management 
and central support offices need to make to improve support 
for, and sustain, such programs and the Small Grants Program; 
how USAID personnel are informed about, and encouraged to 
participate in, such programs; the extent to which such 
programs will materially change USAID's overall operations and 
programs; how the Small Grants Program is integrated with Local 
Solutions; and the methodology for training USAID staff who 
participate in the Small Grants Program to work effectively 
with local communities, organizations, and governments.
    Mission Closings.--The Committee directs the USAID

enactment of the act, the USAID Administrator shall submit a

has been encumbered, and a description of efforts by USAID to 
fill such positions with members of the Foreign Service.
    U.S. Small Business.--Not later than 90 days after 
enactment of the act, the USAID Administrator shall submit to 
the Committee a report on the implementation of the directive 
in Senate Report 114-79 to set regional and worldwide goals for 
overseas contracts and subcontracts with U.S. small businesses, 
and to require that small business indicators and annual 
targets be included in each overseas USAID mission annual plan. 
The USAID Administrator shall include in such report a 
description of the incentives provided to overseas mission 
employees to work with small local and U.S. businesses.
    The USAID Administrator is directed to update the report 
required under this heading in Senate Report 114-79 in the 
manner described, except that such report should cover fiscal 
year 2016 awards.
    The Committee directs the USAID Administrator to consider

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

                       MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH

    The Committee recommends $814,500,000 for maternal and 
child health activities under this heading.
    Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus.--The Committee recognizes 
the importance of low-cost vaccines for women of childbearing 
age in preventing tetanus in newborn children and the role of 
public-private partnerships in delivering such vaccines, and 
urges USAID to support efforts to eliminate maternal and 
neonatal tetanus.
    Pilot Project and Report.--Section 7034(q) of the act 
requires the USAID Administrator to implement a pilot project 
with funds appropriated under the GHP heading that leverages 
public and private capital to expand delivery of interventions 
for maternal and child health.
    Not later than September 30, 2017, the USAID Administrator 
shall submit a report to the Committee detailing the agency's 
efforts to expand interventions to end preventable maternal 
newborn and child deaths through the use of innovative 
financing mechanisms, including development of impact bonds and 
public-private partnerships, and the opportunities and 
challenges of expanding the use of such financing mechanisms. 
The report should also include details on support for a multi-
year strategy to end such deaths, including amounts planned in 
subsequent fiscal years, if appropriate.
    Polio.--The Committee recommends a total of not less than 
$59,000,000 in the act for polio eradication efforts, including 
not less than $7,500,000 under the ESF heading for programs for 
Pakistan and Afghanistan.
    Vaccines and Immunizations.--The Committee recommends 
$275,000,000 for the GAVI Alliance and directs the USAID 
Administrator to provide details on the planned uses of funds 
prior to making the contribution.
    Vulnerable Children.--The Committee appreciates USAID's 
designation of Armenia, Cambodia, Colombia, Moldova, Rwanda, 
and Uganda as the six priority countries under the U.S. 
Government Action Plan on Children in Adversity [the Action 
Plan] and directs the USAID Administrator to submit 
implementation plans for the final year of the Action Plan in a 
timely manner. The annual report required by the Assistance for 
Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children in Developing Countries 
Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-95) should include a detailed 
description of the programs and amount of funds allocated 
across departments and agencies for each of the objectives 
outlined in the Action Plan.
    The Committee recommends support for programs that address 
autism spectrum disorders, including treatment and the training 
of healthcare workers to better diagnose such disorders.
    The Committee recommends not less than $3,500,000 for 
assistance for blind children, in addition to funds otherwise 
available for such purposes, which USAID should administer in a 
manner that delivers the maximum amount of funds to 
beneficiaries.

                               NUTRITION

    The Committee recommends $125,000,000 for nutrition 
programs under this heading, to be made available through 
USAID.
    The Committee recommends $3,500,000, in addition to funds 
otherwise available, to address malnutrition among children in 
Laos.
    Micronutrients.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$33,000,000 for micronutrients, of which not less than 
$22,500,000 is to address vitamin A deficiencies. The Committee 
recommends that nutrition programs, including micronutrients, 
also be funded by the Department of State and USAID within 
programs to combat Human Immune Deficiency/Acquired Immune 
Deficiency Syndrome [HIV/AIDS]. The Committee recommends not 
less than $2,500,000 for the USAID/United Nations Children's 
Fund [UNICEF] Iodine Deficiency Disorder program to prevent 
intellectual disability in children.

                  FAMILY PLANNING/REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH

    The Committee recommends a total of $622,500,000 in the act 
for family planning and reproductive health programs, including 
$544,000,000 under this heading, $41,000,000 under the ESF 
heading, and $37,500,000 for the United Nations Population 
Fund.
    The Committee recognizes that information and assistance 
for families interested in healthy timing and spacing of 
pregnancies can enhance maternal and child health and improve 
the chances of survival of women and children. The Committee 
recognizes the important role played by faith-based and 
community organizations in the provision of global health 
services, and the Committee encourages USAID to expand 
partnership work with faith-based and community organizations 
on programs that support the healthy timing and spacing of 
pregnancies. The Committee encourages USAID to improve the 
reach and impact of voluntary family planning programs, 
including male behavior change and fertility awareness 
programs.

                                HIV/AIDS

    The Committee recommends a total of $6,000,000,000 for 
programs and activities to combat HIV/AIDS, of which 
$5,670,000,000 is for the Department of State and $330,000,000 
is for USAID.
    Global Fund.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$1,350,000,000 for a U.S. contribution to the Global Fund. The 
Committee continues a provision allowing the contribution to 
exceed the cap for fiscal year 2017, consistent with the 
limitation from 2004. The Committee confirms that the U.S. 
contribution should not exceed 33 percent of the encashment of 
funds to fulfill replenishment cycles at the Global Fund from 
2018 onward.
    Microbicides.--The Committee recommends $45,000,000 for 
research on, and development of, microbicides to prevent HIV.
    President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.--The Committee 
recognizes that the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief 
[PEPFAR] plays a key role in HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and 
treatment globally.
    The Committee encourages the Office of the U.S. Global Aids 
Coordinator [OGAC] to increase efforts to align existing 
programs for orphans and vulnerable children with the goals and 
objectives of the U.S. Government Action Plan on Children in 
Adversity.
    The Committee recommends that OGAC develop a strategy as a 
follow on to the Accelerating Children's HIV/AIDS Treatment 
Initiative that includes specific pediatric treatment targets 
and focuses on building capacity to ensure HIV diagnostics and 
antiretroviral treatment for children are scaled-up with a 
focus on early infant diagnosis, age-appropriate pediatric 
formulations of antiretroviral drugs, and adherence support.
    The Committee encourages OGAC to prioritize treatment for 
HIV-positive pregnant women to prevent mother-to-child 
transmission.
    The Committee notes that current law requires 10 percent of 
total PEPFAR program funds to be allocated for programs focused 
on orphans and vulnerable children. The Committee urges OGAC to 
seek civil society and government partners to achieve the goal 
of decreasing the number of children living outside of family 
care due to HIV/AIDS. The Committee directs OGAC to consult 
with the appropriate congressional committees prior to 
obligating funds for such programs.
    Vaccine.--The Committee recommends that, among other 
methods for preventing the transmission of HIV, USAID should 
continue to support research and development of a vaccine to 
combat the AIDS virus.

                       OTHER GLOBAL HEALTH ISSUES

    Contagious Infectious Disease Outbreaks--The Committee 
recommends $72,500,000 to combat pandemic influenza and other 
highly virulent viruses and emerging diseases. Section 7058(c) 
of the act provides that funds appropriated by the act under 
the GHP, DA, IDA, CCF, ESF, DF, AEECA, and MRA headings may be 
made available to combat an infectious disease outbreak that is 
sustained, severe, and is spreading internationally.
    Ebola Outbreak.--The Committee recognizes the continued 
ongoing threat posed by the Ebola outbreak in West and Central 
Africa, and notes that the reporting requirements on the uses 
of funds to respond to the outbreak contained in section 9004 
of division J of Public Law 113-235 continue in effect until 
all funds appropriated by that act for such purposes have been 
fully expended.
    Malaria.--The Committee recommends $745,000,000 for 
programs to combat malaria and encourages USAID to continue to 
support public-private partnerships; research and development; 
diagnostic and vector control tools; access and delivery of 
anti-malarial medicines, including new, effective pediatric 
formulations and alternatives to artemisinin combination 
therapies to counter resistance; and to continue efforts to 
develop new insecticides and a malaria vaccine.
    The Committee does not include authority in the President's 
budget request for the transfer of Ebola-related funds 
appropriated under the ESF heading in title IX of division J of 
Public Law 113-235 for the prevention, treatment, and control 
of malaria and other infectious diseases.
    The Committee reaffirms its support for the Coordinator of 
U.S. Government Activities to Combat Malaria Globally as 
established in the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States 
Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria 
Reauthorization Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-293), and expects 
section 304 of such law to be implemented by all relevant 
Federal agencies.
    Neglected Tropical Diseases.--The Committee recommends 
$100,000,000 for continued support for USAID's integrated 
Neglected Tropical Disease [NTD] program to eliminate 
intestinal parasites, schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis, 
onchocerciasis, trachoma, and leprosy, which afflict hundreds 
of millions of people in tropical countries. The Committee 
commends USAID for its efforts to address the most prevalent 
NTDs, and notes that for many NTDs on the World Health 
Organization's list of NTDs, current diagnostic and therapeutic 
tools are not sufficient to properly treat patients. The 
Committee continues to encourage USAID to support research and 
development of NTDs, and notes the essential contributions of 
the private sector in improving diagnostic and therapeutic 
tools--and product innovation--to treat patients with NTDs.
    Research and Development.--The Committee supports 
investments in new global health technologies to address 
ongoing global health challenges.
    Tuberculosis.--The Committee recommends $241,000,000 for 
programs to combat tuberculosis and directs USAID to prioritize 
the use of U.S.-based entities for this purpose, consistent 
with the FAA.
    Zika Virus.--The Committee recognizes the health threats 
posed by the Zika virus, particularly to women of child-bearing 
age and pregnant women, and encourages the Secretary of State 
to use the reprogramming authority provided in section 7058(c) 
of the act should additional assistance be required.

               FOOD SECURITY AND AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommends $1,053,000,000 under title III of 
the act for food security and agricultural development 
programs. The Committee supports Feed the Future's [FtF] goal 
of creating long-term solutions to food insecurity and 
malnutrition. The Committee recognizes the importance of 
integrating women as key recipients of agriculture and 
technical assistance, and intends that programs are prioritized 
for women farmers, small-holder farmers, and other vulnerable 
populations.
    Feed the Future Innovation Labs.--The Committee recommends 
not less than $32,000,000 for the FtF Innovation Labs, and 
supports efforts to improve agricultural productivity, 
nutritional quality and security, and innovative research to 
prevent malnutrition.
    Global Crop Diversity Trust.--The Committee recommends 
$15,000,000 for the Global Crop Diversity Trust endowment, 
which seeks to ensure the viability of agriculture worldwide by 
conserving and making available collections of crop diversity.
    Land Grant Institutions.--The Committee supports the work 
of land grant institutions of higher learning, and encourages 
USAID to continue partnering with such institutions with 
specialized capability in agriculture research to assist 
developing countries improve food production.

                          ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

    Cooperative Development.--The Committee has long recognized 
the important role that U.S. cooperatives and credit unions 
play in overseas programs as a means to lift people out of 
poverty by mobilizing equity and savings for community-based 
economic growth. The Committee recommends not less than 
$12,000,000 for the Cooperative Development Program managed by 
USAID's Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment, 
which should support local solutions for sustainable 
development.
    Power Africa.--The Committee recommends the President's 
budget request of $291,000,000 under this heading for the Power 
Africa initiative, and supports the goal of providing 
electricity to millions of people who currently have no access 
to power in sub-Saharan Africa.
    Public-Private Partnerships.--The Committee has long 
recognized the contributions of public-private partnerships in 
furthering national interests abroad, including Internet-
related governance and training, emergency communications, and 
cybersecurity. The Committee directs USAID to continue to 
support such programs, particularly in Africa.
    Trade Capacity Building.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $10,000,000 under this heading and $10,000,000 under the 
ESF heading for trade capacity building and labor programs in 
the Western Hemisphere and countries that are parties to the 
Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations. Prior to obligating 
such funds, the Committee directs the Secretary of State and 
the USAID Administrator to coordinate the prioritization of 
trade capacity programs with the heads of other relevant 
Federal agencies, including ILAB and USTR.
    The Committee affirms the statutory U.S. policy goal (19 
U.S.C. 3723) to develop Free Trade Agreements [FTAs] with sub-
Saharan African countries, and recognizes the efforts of USAID, 
MCC, and USTR to build the capacity of such countries to enter 
into bilateral and multilateral FTAs. The Committee encourages 
USAID, in consultation with MCC and USTR, to identify the 
barriers to sub-Saharan African nations developing FTAs with 
the United States, and encourages such agencies to coordinate 
trade capacity building assistance to overcome such barriers.

                               EDUCATION

    American Schools and Hospitals Abroad Program.--The 
Committee recommends not less than $26,000,000 for the American 
Schools and Hospitals Abroad program. Grants shall be awarded 
through a competitive process and in accordance with all 
applicable rules and regulations.
    Basic Education.--The Committee recommends up to 
$560,782,000 for assistance for basic education, and provides 
that such funds may only be made available for each country at 
levels that do not exceed the fiscal year 2017 CBJ, and should 
only support the stated objectives of basic education programs 
for each Country Development Cooperation Strategy or similar 
strategy established by USAID.
    The obligated but unexpended funds appropriated for basic 
education from fiscal years 2007 through 2016 total 
$1,581,421,978. The unobligated balances from fiscal years 2015 
and 2016 total $1,059,121,411. When combined, the basic 
education pipeline totals $2,640,542,389.\1\

technology, including e-learning, to improve the quality of, 
and increase access to, higher education.
    The Committee supports the work of land grant institutions 
of higher learning with specialized capabilities and encourages 
USAID to partner with such organizations.
    The Committee directs USAID to post all funding

developing economies. The Committee directs the Secretary of 
State to review such programs and examine whether there are 
opportunities to reduce duplication and maximize impact, and to 
submit a report to the Committee not later than 180 days after 
enactment of the act.
    Large Dams.--The Committee notes the importance of 
hydropower as a renewable resource in providing power in 
developing countries, particularly for people who lack access

    The Committee directs the Secretary of the Treasury, when 
evaluating a proposal by an international financial institution 
[IFI] to finance construction of a large dam, to apply the 
Department of the Treasury's due diligence process, including 
reviewing for full compliance with IFI policies and legislative 
voting mandates, as well as considering the dam policies of 
relevant Federal agencies, the Hydropower Sustainability 
Assessment Protocol, and other sources of hydropower and 
environmental expertise. The U.S. executive director of such

recommends not less than $5,000,000 for grants to local 
community organizations to support efforts to prevent pollution

    The Committee recommends a total of $1,377,286,000 in the 
act for gender programs (excluding Food for Peace programs), 
including not less than the President's budget request to 
implement a multiyear strategy to respond to gender-based 
violence, and to support the implementation of the U.S. 
National Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security. The total 
amount for gender programs is $29,500,000 above the President's 
budget request for such purposes, as section 7073(c) of the act

obligation of funds.
    Discriminatory Tests.--The Committee deplores the use of 
virginity tests, including to determine the qualification of 
women for certain professions, such as by the Government of 
Indonesia for police recruitment. In addition, the Committee 
condemns the use of such tests by the Governments of Egypt and 
Iran against women and girls who challenge authoritarianism.
    Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting.--Section 7059(c)(3) of 
the act recommends not less than $5,000,000 under title III of

of State, foreign operations, and related programs for UNICEF 
to support the Joint Program on Female Genital Mutilation/
Cutting.

awarded on an open and competitive basis.

                            GLOBAL PROGRAMS

    Clean Cookstoves.--The Committee remains concerned that 
exposure of billions of people in developing countries to smoke 
from traditional cookstoves causes premature deaths, primarily 
of women and young children, and contributes to deforestation, 
erosion, and drought, and the women and children who collect 
firewood face daily hardship and security risks. The Committee 
recommends funds for cookstoves that sustainably reduce fuel 
consumption and exposure to harmful smoke.
    Disability Programs.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $7,500,000 for grants to address the needs and protect and 
promote the rights of persons with disabilities in developing 
countries, in addition to funds otherwise available for such 
purposes in the act.
    Faith-Based Organizations.--The Committee appreciates the 
historical contributions of the faith sector in the delivery of 
assistance, care and support at the grassroots level. The 
Committee encourages the Secretary of State and the USAID 
Administrator to use the faith sector, in conjunction with the 
public and private sectors, for the delivery of assistance in 
developing countries under this heading and the GHP and ESF 
headings.
    Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund.--The Committee recommends 
$13,500,000 for the Leahy War Victims Fund which assists 
persons severely disabled as a result of armed conflict.
    Partner Vetting System.--The Secretary of State and the 
USAID Administrator shall continue to follow directives and 
guidance regarding the partner vetting system in the Statement 
of Managers accompanying division K of Public Law 114-113, 
including how information regarding a positive match will be 
handled and how to appeal such a match.

of $60,000,000 in the act for TIP programs under the GHP, DA, 
ESF, and INCLE headings.
    Water and Sanitation.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $400,000,000 in the act for sustainable water supply and 
sanitation projects pursuant to the Senator Paul Simon Water 
for the Poor Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-121), as amended, of 
which not less than $145,000,000 is for programs and activities 
in sub-Saharan Africa.

                               COUNTRIES

    Nepal.--The Committee is concerned with the slow recovery 
from the devastating 2015 earthquake in Nepal, and notes that 
reconstruction has yet to begin in many areas. The Committee 
recommends not less than $50,000,000 under this heading for 
earthquake recovery in Nepal.
    Peru.--The Committee is aware of the threats to the health 
and welfare of Amazon indigenous communities due to oil spills 
in or the near the Amazon River and tributaries. The Committee 
requests the Secretary of State to engage the Government of 
Peru, affected communities, and PetroPeru on efforts to clean 
up the spills, and to support such efforts if warranted.
    Philippines.--The Committee recommends the President's 
budget request for assistance for the Philippines under this 
heading, and notes with concern the comments and actions by the 
new leadership in that country that call into question 
commitments to democracy, human rights, and rule of law.
     Timor-Leste.--The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for 
assistance for Timor-Leste under this heading, which is 
$1,300,000 above the President's budget request.

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

                                 AFRICA

    Central African Republic.--Funds appropriated under this 
heading shall be made available for reconciliation and 
peacebuilding programs in the Central African Republic, 
including activities to promote inter-faith dialogue at the 
national and local levels, and for programs to prevent crimes 
against humanity.
    Djibouti.--The Committee recognizes the strategic 
importance of Djibouti to U.S. security interests, and 
recommends $9,500,000 under this heading to implement programs 
to expand economic opportunities and strengthen democracy in 
Djibouti, including to support civil society.
    Ethiopia.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State to 
update the report on Ethiopia required under this heading in 
Senate Report 114-79 in the manner described.
    Kenya.--The Committee is concerned with reports that the 
Government of Kenya intends to close refugee camps in Kenya, 
including the Dadaab camp which currently hosts over 300,000 
Somali refugees. Prior to the obligation of funds made 
available for assistance for the Government of Kenya by the 
act, the Secretary of State shall consult with the Committee on 
the consequences of such closures on refugee populations and 
security and stability in Kenya.
    Lake Chad Basin Countries.--Section 7032(a) of the act 
recommends $33,000,000 for democracy programs under this and 
the DA heading for the Lake Chad Basin countries (Cameroon, 
Chad, Niger, and Nigeria), which is $2,000,000 above the 
President's budget request. These funds are in addition to 
funds otherwise available for such purposes.
    Somalia.--The Committee recommends not less than the 
President's budget request for programs to promote dialogue and 
reconciliation between the central Government of Somalia and 
the rest of the country, and for programs to strengthen the 
rule of law, government institutions, civil society 
participation in peace-building activities, and education and 
employment opportunities for the people of Somalia.
     South Sudan.--The Secretary of State is directed to ensure 
that data collected by the Ceasefire and Transitional Security 
Arrangements Monitoring Mechanism, including archival data and 
data collected by any successor organization, is shared in a 
timely manner and in its entirety with the U.S. Government, 
including relevant bureaus and offices of the Department of 
State, and is made publicly available, as appropriate.
    The Committee supports efforts to build the capacity of 
civil society in South Sudan to develop and implement justice 
and accountability mechanisms, including the documentation of 
human rights violations.
    War Crimes in Africa.--The Committee continues to support 
efforts by the United States, U.N., African Union, and 
governments in Central Africa to capture Joseph Kony and other 
top commanders of the Lord's Resistance Army [LRA], and to 
assist victims of the LRA's crimes. Section 7042(e) of the act 
recommends not less than $10,000,000 to implement the Lord's 
Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 
2009 (Public Law 111-172), including for programs to improve 
physical access, for telecommunications infrastructure and 
early-warning mechanisms, and to support the disarmament, 
demobilization, and reintegration of former LRA combatants, 
especially child soldiers.

                       EAST ASIA AND THE PACIFIC

    Thailand.--Section 7043(f) of the act is a new provision 
that recommends not less than $4,000,000 for democracy and 
conflict resolution programs in Thailand under this heading. 
The Secretary of State is directed to consult with the 
Committee prior to the obligation of funds.

                    EUROPE, EURASIA AND CENTRAL ASIA

    The Committee recommends funds for countries in Europe, 
Eurasia and Central Asia that were included under this heading 
in the President's budget request under the AEECA heading.

                               SOUTH ASIA

    Descriptive information for Afghanistan and Pakistan is 
contained in the Countries and Issues of Concern section of 
this report.

                               NEAR EAST

     Cyprus.--Funds appropriated under this heading may be used 
to support reunification in Cyprus, including new federal 
structures of a reunified island and to assist in building a 
unified Cypriot economy, following consultation with the 
Committee.
     MEPI Scholarships.--The Committee recommends $12,000,000 
for scholarships for students in countries with significant 
Muslim populations at not-for-profit institutions of higher 
education in a manner consistent with prior fiscal years, and 
the awarding of funds should be through an open and competitive 
process.

                    LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN

    Cuba.--Section 7045(c) of the act recommends $15,000,000 
for democracy programs for Cuba under this heading.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees assessing Internet access in Cuba, 
including a description of Internet access and use in both 
urban and rural areas and the general purposes for which the 
Internet is used, and an assessment of the effectiveness of the 
Government of Cuba to block access by the people of Cuba to the 
Internet.
    Haiti.--Section 7045(d) of the act requires that prior to 
the obligation of assistance for the central Government of 
Haiti, the Secretary of State shall certify that such 
government is taking certain steps to strengthen governance and 
the rule of law, including through free and fair elections and 
combatting corruption.
    The Committee recommends up to $14,000,000 under this 
heading, an amount equal to the President's budget request, to 
continue market-based reforestation programs in Haiti to 
sustainably address and reverse the loss of forest cover.
    Paraguay.--Prior to the obligation of funds in the act for 
assistance for the Government of Paraguay, the Secretary of 
State shall submit a report to the Committee detailing steps 
taken by the Government of Paraguay to conduct a credible, 
thorough investigation of the June 15, 2012, eviction of 
farmers in Marina Kue.
    Venezuela.--The Committee recognizes that crisis in 
Venezuela can only be addressed through fundamental economic 
and political reforms. The Committee supports the President's 
budget request for democracy programs under this heading, and 
expects additional funds to be made available under the CCF and 
DF headings, should further programmatic opportunities in 
Venezuela arise. The Committee also notes the important role 
regional organizations play in encouraging reforms in 
Venezuela, particularly the Organization of American States 
[OAS].

                            GLOBAL PROGRAMS

    Caribbean Energy Security Initiative.--The Committee 
supports enhanced efforts to help Latin American and Caribbean 
countries achieve greater energy independence from Venezuela, 
including by improving governance, energy development, energy 
efficiency, and electrical inter-connection, and recommends not 
less than $2,000,000 for the Caribbean Energy Security 
Initiative.
    Counterterrorism Partnerships Fund.--The Committee 
recommends $59,000,000 for the Counterterrorism Partnerships 
Fund under this heading.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the USAID 
Administrator, shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees assessing the extent to which 
repressive policies and actions of foreign governments 
contribute to public support for extremism, particularly among 
youth. The report should include specific policy and program 
recommendations.
    Counter-Trafficking in Persons Policy.--The Committee 
encourages the Department of State and USAID to implement the 
guiding principles of USAID's Counter-Trafficking Persons 
Policy (February 2012), particularly adopting an integrated 
approach to protection and prevention within core programs, as 
appropriate.
    Country Focus and Selectivity.--The act does not continue a 
requirement in section 7081(b) of division K of Public Law 114-
113 regarding a transition program for a country to reduce 
dependency on U.S. bilateral foreign assistance. The Committee 
will consider continuation of such requirement after the 
results of the initial program have been assessed. The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to regularly update 
the Committee on the implementation and results of the 
transition program.
    Section 7081 of the act continues the requirement that 
every bilateral country assistance strategy include a 
transition plan identifying goals and objectives for winding 
down, within a targeted period of years, such bilateral 
assistance. The plan should also include the promotion of 
domestic public and private resource mobilization, if 
appropriate.
    Domestic Resource Mobilization.--The Committee supports 
efforts by USAID to encourage partner countries to increase 
their investments in health, education, and other development 
sectors by strengthening revenue generation and budgetary 
capacity, reducing losses from corruption and graft, and 
countering tax avoidance in partner countries. The Committee 
supports efforts by USAID to utilize funds from within sectors 
for domestic resource mobilization efforts. The Committee 
directs the USAID Administrator to consult with the Committee 
prior to the obligation of funds for this purpose.
    Forensic Assistance.--Section 7034(b)(4) of the act 
recommends not less than $9,000,000 under this heading for 
forensic assistance for NGOs in countries where large numbers 
of people were forcibly disappeared and are presumed dead as a 
result of armed conflict. The Committee recognizes that there 
is an ongoing need for DNA analysis of exhumed remains in Iraq, 
Guatemala, Sri Lanka, and elsewhere, including for judicial 
investigations and prosecution of those responsible for crimes 
against humanity and other gross violations of human rights.
    Institutions of Higher Education.--The Committee supports 
continued funds for institutions of higher education in the 
Middle East and South Asia, including through funds made 
available under title VIII of the act.
    Networks of Corruption.--In submitting the report required 
by section 7031(d) of the act, the Secretary of State shall 
include, to the extent possible: a diagram depicting the public 
and private individuals and entities that make up the corrupt 
network; identification of any government agency or other 
public entity that is directly or indirectly involved in such 
network, such as the judiciary, tax authority, central bank, 
specific military or police units, or elements of subnational 
governance; identification of the area of operation of such 
network and its key economic activities, licit and illicit, as 
well as other significant revenue streams benefitting the 
network, such as embezzlement of public funds, extortion, or 
bribery; and identification of entities and individuals that 
enable corrupt practices, such as banks, law firms, accounting 
firms, or real estate agents.
    Reconciliation Programs.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $26,000,000 under this heading and the DA heading for 
reconciliation programs and activities which bring together and 
facilitate direct communication between individuals of 
different ethnic, religious, and political backgrounds in 
countries affected by civil strife and war, including in the 
Middle East and North Africa. Funds should be leveraged, to the 
maximum extent practicable, to obtain contributions from other 
donors and governments.
    Rule of Law.--The Committee underscores that the rule of 
law is fundamental to democracy and sustainable development, 
and supports funds to strengthen independent judiciaries, 
protect human rights, combat human trafficking and corruption, 
and increase public accountability and access to justice.

    The Committee recommends $150,500,000 for Democracy Fund. 
Funds in this account are allocated according to the following 
table and are subject to the provisions of section 7019 of the 
act:

    The Committee commends the democracy programs supported by 
the Department of State's Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, 
and Labor [DRL], and encourages other bureaus, and relevant 
USAID offices, to develop and conduct such programs in a 
similar strategic manner.
    The Committee directs the Assistant Secretary for DRL to 
consult with the Committee on the proposed allocation of funds 
within the HRDF prior to the initial obligation of funds.
    Business and Human Rights Program.--Consistent with prior 
fiscal years, any funds made available by the act for a 
business and human rights program in the PRC shall be made 
available on a cost-matching basis from sources other than the 
U.S. Government.
    Press Freedom.--The Committee notes that according to 
Freedom House, only 13 percent of the world's population has 
access to a free press, and that Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Turkey 
are among countries that experienced the worst decline in press 
freedom in 2015. While the Committee recognizes the strategic 
relationship between the United States and such countries, it 
remains concerned with the potential impact restrictions on 
press freedom may have on long-term stability.

INCLE headings.
    Assistance requested for such countries under the GHP 
heading are not included in this account, and shall be 
administered in accordance with the responsibilities of the 
Coordinator for U.S. Assistance to Europe and Eurasia. The 
Committee provides the Secretary of State with authority to 
assign responsibility for funds for Central Asian countries to 
another senior Department of State official, following 
consultation with the Committee.
    Funds in this account are allocated, unless otherwise 
noted, according to the following table, and are subject to the

    Ireland.--The Committee recommends $1,500,000 to support 
the economic and social development and reconciliation goals of 
the Anglo-Irish Agreement Support Act of 1986 (Public Law 99-
415).
    Nagorno-Karabakh.--The Committee recommends assistance for 
victims of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in amounts consistent 
with prior fiscal years, and for ongoing needs related to the 
conflict. The Committee urges a peaceful resolution of the 
conflict.
    The Committee recognizes that Nagorno-Karabakh has a per 
capita landmine accident rate among the highest in the world, 
and that mine clearance programs have been effective where 
implemented. The Committee is concerned with territorial 
restrictions on demining activities in the region and 
recommends continued funds for, and the geographic expansion

                    MIGRATION AND REFUGEE ASSISTANCE

Appropriations, 2016....................................  $3,059,000,000
    Enduring operations.................................     931,886,000
    Overseas contingency operations.....................   2,127,114,000

    Enduring operations.................................     931,866,000
    Overseas contingency operations.....................   2,127,114,000

    The Committee recommends $931,886,000 for Migration and 
Refugee Assistance. An additional $2,127,114,000 in title VIII 
of the act under this heading is designated for OCO. The total 
amount of $3,059,000,000 is equal to the fiscal year 2016 
enacted level. The Committee notes the President's budget 
request for this account is $260,400,000 below such level.
    The Committee is concerned that as the number of people 
forcibly displaced around the world continues to rise, 
international contributions for refugee assistance have not 
kept pace with rapidly expanding needs. The Committee notes 
that by the third quarter of 2015, approximately 33 U.N. 
appeals were only 42 percent funded, and encourages the 
international community to increase contributions to meet U.N. 
humanitarian appeals for 2016.
    Armenia.--The Committee supports assistance for refugees in 
Armenia, particularly minority groups from the Middle East who 
have fled persecution and conflict in Syria and Iraq.
    Report.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State to 
fulfill the reporting requirement relating to the United 
Nations Relief and Works Agency under the Protracted Refugee 
Situations subheading in Senate Report 112-172, as referenced 
under the MRA heading in Senate Report 113-81 and Senate Report 
113-195, and to publish an unclassified version of the report, 
in accordance with section 7077(a)(1) of the act, not later 
than 60 days after enactment of the act. If the Secretary is 
unable to fulfill this requirement, the Secretary is directed 
to submit a written justification to the Committee detailing 
the specific reasons why the requirement cannot be met.
    U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.--The Committee requests 
the Secretary of State to consult with the Committee prior to 
obligating funds for the U.S. Refugee Admissions Programs 
[USRAP].
    Not later than 30 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the Committee, in 
classified form if necessary, detailing the procedures and 
safeguards established for USRAP, particularly for refugees 
from the Middle East. The Secretary shall update this report 
quarterly, noting any changes in procedures and safeguards.
    Not later than 180 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of 
Health and Human Services and the Director of the U.S. 
Citizenship and Immigration Services, shall submit a report to 
the Committee on the direct costs associated with the U.S. 
Refugee Admissions Program by agency and activity for each of 
fiscal years 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. The report shall also 
include the corresponding data on refugee applicants in process 
during those fiscal years for context regarding the cost per 
refugee.

    Costa Rica.--The Committee is aware of the increasing 
threat to Costa Rica from violence and corruption associated 
with narcotics trafficking and the economic burden caused by 
the growing numbers of migrants, and recommends that the 
Secretary of State assist the Government of Costa Rica to 
respond to these challenges, if requested.
    Demand Reduction Program.--The Committee recommends the 
President's budget request for Demand Reduction Program.
    Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity, and War Crimes.--Section 
7047(b) of the act provides that funds may be made available in 
support of international judicial investigations, 
apprehensions, prosecutions, and adjudications of genocide, 
crimes against humanity, and war crimes. The Committee intends 
such efforts to be targeted toward Joseph Kony, Omar al-Bashir, 
Bashir al-Assad, and other high profile foreign nationals who 
are accused of such crimes.
    Mexico.--The Committee notes that funds made available 
under this heading for assistance for Mexico are intended, 
among other purposes, to build a modern border system capable 
of facilitating legitimate trade and travel.
    The Committee is concerned that after providing more than 
$2,500,000,000 for the Merida Initiative since 2008, the flow 
of illicit drugs into the United States and the number of 
transnational criminal organizations in Mexico have increased 
significantly, with few successful prosecutions of senior level 
drug traffickers in Mexico. Not later than 45 days after 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall submit a 
report to the Committee describing the Department of State's 
monitoring and evaluation procedures for the use of Merida 
funds, including the metrics it has developed in coordination 
with the Government of Mexico, and how the Department will 
modify the use of funds if a program is determined to be 
ineffective. The report shall also, taking into account lessons 
learned, describe how U.S. assistance will decrease the flow of 
illicit drugs into the United States, reduce drug-related 
violence and corruption in Mexico, and increase successful 
prosecutions of drug traffickers.
    Rule of Law Programs.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $10,000,000 to continue rule of law programs for 
transitional and post-conflict states, and activities to 
coordinate rule of law programs among foreign governments, 
organizations, and other U.S. Government agencies. Funds are to 
be awarded on a competitive basis.
    The Committee underscores that independent and transparent 
judicial systems are critical to the administration of justice, 
particularly in countries confronting organized crime and 
narcotics trafficking. The Committee directs that funds be made 
available under this heading to continue programs that 
strengthen and promote independent judiciaries worldwide.
    War Crimes Investigations.--The Committee directs the 
Department of State to support U.S. and international NGOs 
conducting criminal investigations of war crimes, crimes 
against humanity, and genocide in Syria and Iraq that 
prioritize strengthening the capacity of Syrian and Iraqi 
criminal investigators while supporting U.S. law enforcement 
efforts to identify and prosecute those who violate U.S. and 
international criminal law.

    Bahrain.--The Committee recommends the President's budget 
request for assistance for Bahrain under this heading, and 
directs the Secretary of State to update the report required 
under this heading in Senate Report 114-79 in the manner 
described.
    The Committee is concerned that restrictions on peaceful 
dissent and free expression in Bahrain may have the unintended 
consequence of increasing instability in that country. The 
Committee encourages the Secretary of State to continue to work 
with the Government of Bahrain on implementation of reforms 
that provide greater rights and opportunities for the people of 
Bahrain.
    Crowd Control Items.--Section 7034(b)(2) of the act 
continues restrictions on the provision of crowd control items 
to foreign security forces in a manner identical to the 
previous fiscal year.
    Europe and Eurasia Regional.--The Committee recommends 
$20,000,000 for programs to counter Russian aggression under 
this heading, which is $5,000,000 above the President's budget 
request.
    Indonesia.--The Committee recommends $14,000,000 for 
assistance for Indonesia under this heading, which is 
$4,000,000 above the President's budget request, and directs 
the Secretary of State to update the report required under this 
heading in Senate Report 113-195 in the manner described. The 
Committee does not support assistance under this heading for 
Indonesian military personnel deployed to West Papua, and notes 
that no such assistance was included in the President's budget 
request.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State, in 
consultation with the heads of other relevant U.S. Government 
agencies, to make available to the appropriate Indonesian 
judicial authorities, if requested, any information available 
to the Secretary that could assist in investigations and 
prosecutions of crimes against humanity in Indonesia committed 
in 1965, 1989, 1998, 1999, and the 2004 assassination of Munir 
Said Thalib. Not later than 90 days after the enactment of the 
act, the Secretary shall submit a report to the Committee on 
steps taken to provide such information.
    Mexico.--The Committee supports joint U.S.-Mexican efforts 
to strengthen judicial and law enforcement capacity to address 
narcotics trafficking, violent crime, and corruption in Mexico, 
and remains concerned with disappearances and other unsolved 
crimes in which the security forces are implicated.
    Of the funds available for assistance for Mexico under this 
heading, 25 percent shall be withheld from obligation until the 
Secretary of State determines and reports to the Committee that 
the Government of Mexico is: thoroughly and credibly 
investigating and prosecuting violations of human rights in 
civilian courts, including the killings at Tlatlaya in June 
2014, in accordance with Mexican law; vigorously enforcing 
prohibitions against torture and the use of testimony obtained 
through torture; and searching for the victims of forced 
disappearances and credibly investigating and prosecuting those 
responsible for such crimes. The Committee expects the 
Government of Mexico to cooperate fully with the Inter-American 
Commission on Human Rights Group of Experts investigation of 
the disappearance of 43 students in Guerrero in September 2014.
    Mongolia.--The Committee recommends $2,600,000 for 
assistance for Mongolia under this heading, an increase of 
$1,000,000 above the President's budget request.
    Morocco.--The Committee recommends the President's budget 
request for assistance for Morocco under this heading, and 
directs the Secretary of State to update the report required 
under this heading in Senate Report 114-79 in the manner 
described.
    Philippines.--The Committee recommends $45,000,000 for 
assistance for the Philippines under this heading, an increase 
of $5,000,000 above the President's budget request, and directs 
the Secretary of State to update the report required under this 
heading in Senate Report 114-79 in the manner described. The 
report should also include an assessment of the commitment of 
the Government of the Philippines to international human rights 
conventions.
    Security Sector Reform.--Security sector reform programs 
funded by the act shall be implemented in a manner consistent 
with the roles, responsibilities, and guiding principles of the 
February 2009 ``Security Sector Reform'' paper prepared jointly 
by the Departments of State and Defense, and USAID.
    Thailand.--No assistance for Thailand is recommended under 
this heading, as such assistance is prohibited by section 7008 
of the act.

    Organization of American States.--The Committee is aware of 
the budgetary challenges facing the OAS, and particularly the 
Inter-American Commission on Human Rights [IACHR] which plays 
an important role in providing access to justice for victims of 
crimes against humanity and other human rights violations. The 
Committee urges the OAS Secretary-General to develop a 5-year 
financial plan that emphasizes the comparative advantages of 
the OAS in supporting democracy, monitoring electoral 
processes, and protecting human rights. Section 7045(a)(5)(C) 
of the act recommends $7,000,000 under the ESF heading from 
funds made available for State Western Hemisphere Regional 
programs to be transferred to this heading for a contribution 
to the IACHR.
    United Nations.--The Committee directs the Secretary of 
State to continue to post U.S. voluntary contributions under 
this heading which are provided to the U.N. and its affiliated 
agencies on the Department of State Web site in a timely 
manner.
    United Nations Development Program.--The Committee 
recommends $80,000,000 for the U.N. Development Program [UNDP] 
under this heading, an amount equal to the prior fiscal year 
and $20,000,000 above the President's budget request.
    The Committee notes that for the past 2 years the Aid 
Transparency Index rated UNDP as the world's most transparent 
aid agency. Reforms implemented by UNDP since 2014 to reduce 
duplication and improve efficiency resulted in a 12 percent 
reduction in headquarters staff, and a repositioning of an 
additional 20 percent of such staff to regional hubs to 
strengthen field office support.
    The Committee recognizes UNDP's contributions to stability 
and development efforts in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other 
challenging environments, expects UNDP to continue to play a 
key role in such efforts in the future, and encourages the 
President to request sufficient funds for UNDP in fiscal year 
2018.

projects are consulted and adequately compensated.
