                       Summary of Appropriations

    The Committee recommends total appropriations of 
$48,005,900,000 for the Department of State, foreign 
operations, and related programs for fiscal year 2016. Of this 
amount, $48,268,000,000, including $9,258,000,000 for Overseas 
Contingency Operations [OCO], is for non-emergency 
discretionary programs, $759,000,000 is for emergency 
discretionary funding, and $158,900,000 is for mandatory 
programs. The emergency funding of $759,000,000 is offset by a 
rescission of $1,180,000,000 from funds appropriated in the 
Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2009 (Public Law 111-32).
    The Committee's recommendations for fiscal year 2016, by

\1\The President's budget request and the Committee recommendation
  include a rescission of $1,180,000,000 from funds appropriated in
  Public Law 111-32. The Committee recommendation also includes an
  additional emergency appropriation of $759,000,000 for total emergency
  funding of -$421,000,000.

                              INTRODUCTION

    The operations of Federal agencies involved in diplomacy 
and development, and the programs carried out overseas in 
conjunction with U.S. and local implementers, are critical 
components of our Nation's national security framework. In an 
era when extremist non-state entities aggressively challenge 
and seek to undermine the state system, particularly in the 
Middle East and North Africa, the importance of such operations 
and programs are only heightened. The Committee recognizes that 
health, education, and other development programs conducted 
strategically abroad are just as critical to our national 
security and to international order as counter terrorism 
programs and the professionalization of foreign security 
forces. While there is no single antidote to the rise of 
extremist non-state entities and the violence they espouse, 
competent governance (defined as the provision of security, 
stability, and basic services to a population by functioning 
and accountable government institutions) and the legitimacy 
such governance confers may prove the most sustainable and 
effective bulwark against this challenge. It is therefore in 
the Nation's national security interest to strengthen 
democracy, governance, and development abroad.
    Such operations and programs require funding, and in 
increasingly complex political, programmatic, and security 
environments these costs are increasing. Nonetheless, diplomacy 
and development remain a far less expensive option than relying 
on military intervention when global and regional stability is 
undermined or failing. Witness testimony before the Committee 
on the fiscal year 2016 budget request underscored not only the 
necessity of a robustly funded 150 International Affairs Budget 
Function as a component of the national security of the U.S., 
but also the need to further educate the general public on the 
importance of diplomacy and development in securing the 
homeland, mitigating global challenges and disasters (including 
responding to outbreaks of infectious diseases), promoting 
democracy and human rights, and advancing U.S. economic 
interests.
    From fiscal years 2002 to 2010, the appropriations process 
for Department of State operations and foreign assistance under 
the jurisdiction of the subcommittee included a patchwork of 9 
annual bills and 14 emergency supplemental appropriations acts, 
including the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 
(Public Law 111-5).\1\ In fiscal year 2012, OCO funding 
replaced most emergency supplemental spending, and the act has 
included OCO appropriations in every fiscal year since. 
Following the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States 
[U.S.], and under both Republican and Democrat administrations, 
the blending of base, emergency, and OCO funding have all been 
necessary components of diplomatic operations and foreign 
assistance. Base funding alone has been insufficient to 
mitigate conflict and humanitarian disasters, address disease 
outbreaks and global development, and maintain a diplomatic 
presence in an increasingly dangerous world.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\The merger of Department of State operations and foreign 
assistance in fiscal year 2006 is counted as a single act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Committee urges the administration and Congress to 
jointly consider ways to regularize funding for the act in a 
manner that provides sufficient resources and a modicum of 
predictability for the conduct of diplomacy and development 
programs abroad.

                             Reducing Costs

    As in the past, 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. All programs, 
except those for humanitarian relief and recovery purposes, 
should, as appropriate: be designed from the outset to sunset; 
be sustained by host country governments or civil society; and 
include a cost-matching requirement. Programs that are failing 
to perform or meet sustainability guidelines, that have 
required excessive overhead or security costs that outweigh the 
benefits to be achieved, or lack a coherent strategic purpose 
should be modified or discontinued.
    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 the United States Agency 
for International Development [USAID] shall 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.
    The Committee notes that over the past 4 years, the 
Government Accountability Office [GAO] has published reports 
that have exposed 188 areas of unnecessary duplication and 
overlap throughout the Federal Government, and identified more 
than 1,100 duplicative Federal programs that cost taxpayers 
tens of billions of dollars each year. The Committee directs 
each department and agency for which funds are appropriated by 
the act that has been identified in the annual GAO duplication 
report to provide to the Committee a report detailing efforts 
made to eliminate the duplication identified, and describing 
any legal barriers to ending programs that have been identified 
as duplicative.
    Diplomatic Facilities.--The Committee directs the 
Department of State and USAID to continue to consolidate 
redundant services and operations at diplomatic facilities 
abroad. 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 not later than 
90 days after enactment of the act.
    The Committee expects each agency funded by the act to 
continue to detail the findings of environmental assessments 
and water and energy audits of their overseas operations, and 
to submit these findings to the Committee not later than 
September 30, 2016, including an explanation of steps taken to 
implement any recommendations and a comparison of such findings 
with Federal targets for building energy efficiency and 
environmental sustainability.
    Executive Meetings, Ceremonies, and Conferences.--The 
Committee directs the Department of State, USAID, and other 
agencies to continue to achieve savings by reducing the cost of 
executive meetings, ceremonies, and conferences, and curtailing 
the purchase of commemorative and promotional items.
    Financial, Contract, and Grant Management and Limitation on 
Indirect Costs.--The Committee is concerned with OIG and 
independent auditor findings on weaknesses and shortcomings in 
financial and contract management at the Department of State, 
USAID, Broadcasting Board of Governors [BBG], and other 
agencies funded by the act. The Committee expects the 
Department, USAID, BBG, and other agencies to continue efforts 
to improve financial management, contracting processes, and 
internal controls.
    The Secretary of State is directed to submit a report to 
the Committee not later than 90 days after enactment of the act 
on the status of the implementation of the OIG's 
recommendations in AUD-SI-15-34, ``Management Assistance 
Report: Oversight of Grants to the National Endowment for 
Democracy''.
    The BBG is directed to submit a report to the Committee not 
later than 90 days after enactment of the act on the status of 
the implementation of the OIG's recommendations in AUD-FM-IB-
15-24, ``Audit of Radio Free Asia Expenditures''.
    The Committee notes the issuance of modifications to the 
Federal Acquisition Regulations [FAR] in May 2015 to comply 
with the requirements of section 802 of the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (Public Law 112-239) 
regarding pass-through contracts and the recommendations in the 
GAO report, ``Further Actions Needed to Improve Oversight of 
Pass-through Contracts'' [GAO-15-200]. The Department of State 
and USAID are directed to submit a report to the Committee not 
later than 90 days after enactment of the act describing 
efforts undertaken to ensure compliance with section 802 and 
the FAR provision on pass-through contracts, and on the status 
of implementation of the recommendations in such GAO report.
    The setting of proper indirect costs, including costs 
determined by negotiated indirect cost rate agreements [NICRA] 
that may be paid as part of contracts, grants, cooperative 
agreements, or similar arrangements with appropriated funds is 
intended to ensure fiscally responsible use of taxpayer funds, 
and provides greater clarity for direct costs as these are 
reviewed for each funding instrument. The Committee is 
concerned the Department of State and USAID policies and 
procedures for determining and paying indirect costs do not 
provide sufficient guidance, training, and supervision to 
determine the appropriate levels for indirect costs.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act and 
following consultation with the Committee, the Department of 
State and USAID are directed to submit assessments of the 
effectiveness of respective policies and procedures in ensuring 
that payments for indirect costs, including for NICRA, are 
reasonable, including: evaluations of whether current policies 
and procedures comply with the FAR, as applicable, and title 2, 
part 200 of the Code of Federal Regulations [CFR]; assessments 
of the potential benefits of setting a cap on such indirect 
costs to ensure the cost-effective use of appropriated funds; 
plans to revise such policies and procedures to comply with the 
FAR and CFR and ensure that indirect costs are reasonable; and 
timelines for implementing respective plans. The Committee also 
expects the cost of salary and bonuses of an individual, as 
either direct or indirect costs of a contract, grant, or 
cooperative agreement, not to be paid at a rate in excess of 
Executive Level II.
    Humanitarian Aid Cost-Effectiveness.--Section 7034(m) of 
the act enhances 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 feedback should provide a clearer 
understanding of the perceptions of affected populations, 
whether the aid they receive is relevant to their needs, how 
much they trust the organizations providing aid, and whether 
they believe it worthwhile to provide feedback. Such 
information should be used to improve the delivery and 
effectiveness of humanitarian assistance.
    Printing Costs.--The Committee is concerned with wasteful 
printing practices each year and the lack of clear printing 
policies within each agency funded by the act. The Committee 
directs each agency to work with the Office of Management and 
Budget [OMB] to reduce printing and reproduction costs, and to 
submit a report to the Committee not later than 60 days after 
enactment of the act describing the printing policies of each 
agency and the steps taken to reduce printing volume and costs. 
The report should include annual estimates of savings by each 
agency.

            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 2017 budget request. The 
Committee also directs the Department of State, USAID, and 
other agencies to include detailed information on all 
reimbursable agreements, funds transferred pursuant to sections 
632(a) and (b) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 [FAA] 
(Public Law 87-195), 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

    For purposes of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
Control Act of 1985, as amended, (Public Law 99-177) 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 accompanying 
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 special notification 
requirement, regardless of what may be contained in an agency's 
CBJ or in the operating and spend plans required in section 
7076 of the act. Thus, such CBJs and operating and spend plans 
do not suffice as justification for purposes of satisfying the 
special notification requirement.
    Unless expressly provided to the contrary, the term 
``appropriate congressional committees'' as used in the act and 
accompanying report shall mean the Committees on Appropriations 
and Foreign Relations of the Senate and the Committees on 
Appropriations and Foreign Affairs of the House of 
Representatives.

                           Multi-Year Pledges

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

                       Reports and Notifications

    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(c) of the act.
    Section 7077(d) of the act is a new provision that reduces 
the reporting requirements on the Department of State and USAID 
by establishing a date by which certain reports required to be 
submitted by such agencies will sunset, unless specifically 
extended in a subsequent act. The Department of State and USAID 
shall provide to the Committee estimates of cost savings 
achieved by this sunset. The Committee notes that section 
7034(h) of the act repeals certain obsolete reports.
    Congressional notifications submitted for funds under the 
Peacekeeping Operations [PKO] and International Narcotics 
Control and Law Enforcement [INCLE] headings, and under the 
Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining and Related Programs 
[NADR] heading in title VIII, shall include: a description of 
the type of equipment, training, or other assistance to be 
provided; the intended timeline for the proposed activity; a 
description of objectives and performance metrics associated 
with the proposed activity; and a description of other 
assistance provided, or intended to be provided, under title IV 
of the act during the current or preceding fiscal year on a 
country-by-country basis.

 Reprogramming Guidelines and Section 653(a) of the Foreign Assistance 
                              Act of 1961

    The Committee directs the Department of State and other 
agencies funded by the act to notify the Committee of 
reprogrammings of funds as required by sections 7015 and 7019 
of the act at the most detailed level of either the CBJ, the 
act, or accompanying report, and the Committee expects to be 
notified of any significant departure from the CBJ or of any 
commitment that will require significant funding in future 
years. The Committee directs that staffing levels and future 
year impacts of reprogrammings be included with such 
notifications.
    The Committee is concerned that the Department of State and 
other agencies funded by the act are not consistently 
submitting notifications of internal reorganizations as 
required by section 7015(a)(6) of the act. The Committee does 
not intend the term ``bureaus, centers, or offices'' to limit 
the notification requirement to only organizational units 
formally identified as such. The Committee expects to be 
notified of any reorganizations of organizational units, 
including branches, if it reflects a significant change in 
program focus and priority, overall staffing levels, or 
funding.
    Section 7076 of the act requires operating plans to be 
submitted not later than 45 days after enactment of the act, 
and that spend plans be submitted prior to the obligation of 
funds. The Committee will not consider any proposed 
reprogramming contained in an operating plan that does not 
include the information required in subsection (a). This 
section also clarifies that any deviation in an operating plan 
from funding levels contained in the act or the accompanying 
report shall be subject to the regular notification procedures 
of the Committee.
    Section 653(a) of the FAA requires the President to report 
to Congress, not later than 30 days after enactment of certain 
appropriations laws, on each foreign country and international 
organization to which the U.S. Government intends to provide 
funding. While established to provide flexibility to the 
Secretary of State in the conduct of foreign assistance 
programs, over the past decade this requirement has proven to 
be overly bureaucratic, time consuming, and subject to abuse by 
the Department of State and USAID. In addition, section 7019 of 
the act provides additional flexibility to move funding within 
accounts to address any unforeseen circumstances. The Committee 
therefore includes a greater level of spending detail in the 
accompanying report, and directs the Secretary of State and the 
USAID Administrator to exercise the limited deviation authority 
of section 7019 judiciously.

                               Oversight

    The Committee includes several oversight provisions to 
ensure the proper use of taxpayer funds and accountability of 
the administration. For instance, the act: contains multiple 
special notification requirements for sensitive and priority 
countries (section 7015(f)); requires the Secretary of the 
Treasury to take certain actions to protect whistleblowers at 
International Financial Institutions [IFI] (section 7029(g)); 
mandates that recipient governments meet enumerated fiscal 
responsibility measures before assistance is made available 
through a direct government-to-government mechanism, and also 
includes prior consultation and notification requirements 
before entering into such agreements (section 7031(a)); 
requires GAO to conduct an audit of programs for the West Bank 
and Gaza funded under the Economic Support Fund [ESF] heading 
(section 7039(e)); directs the Secretary of State to certify 
that all appropriate steps have been taken to ensure that 
mechanisms are in place for the monitoring and control of 
assistance for Libya (section 7041(f)); calls for a GAO audit 
of democracy programs in Burma (section 7043(b)); establishes 
significant pre-obligation conditions, including a multi-year 
spend plan, on implementing the United States Strategy for 
Engagement in Central America (section 7045(a)); withholds 15 
percent of contributions to United Nations [U.N.] entities 
until the Secretary of State reports that such entity is taking 
actions regarding publicly posting audits and effectively 
implementing and enforcing policies and procedures relating to 
the protection of whistleblowers (section 7048(a)); withholds 
10 percent of funds for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, 
Tuberculosis and Malaria [the Global Fund] until the Secretary 
of State determines and reports that the Global Fund is taking 
steps with respect to transparency, the funding and 
independence of the Global Fund Inspector General, and the 
protection of whistleblowers (section 7058(b)); requires the 
newly established Countering Violent Extremism Assistance 
Coordinator to submit a report detailing procedures and 
mechanisms for end-use monitoring, vetting procedures, and 
oversight of security assistance made available to implement 
such programs (section 7073(g)); requires operating plans for 
agencies funded by the act, and pre-obligation spend plans for 
over two dozen country and sector-based programs (section 
7076); and requires the Department of State and USAID to use 
funds for proper records management, and to submit a report, to 
be reviewed by GAO, on agency efforts to comply with Federal 
records management statutes, regulations and policies, 
including with respect to email accounts (section 7077(a)).

                    COUNTRIES AND ISSUES OF CONCERNS

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

                              AFGHANISTAN

    Section 7044(a) of the act provides directives and 
conditions on U.S. Embassy operations and assistance in 
Afghanistan. The Committee remains concerned with the 
significant funding required to maintain and consolidate the 
U.S. presence in Afghanistan, and includes a regular reporting 
requirement on the number of U.S. personnel in-country under 
Chief of Mission authority (22 U.S.C. 3927), including locally 
employed staff [LES] and contractors.
    The Committee understands the Department of State plans to 
reduce the number of U.S. direct hires [USDH] by 18 positions 
in fiscal year 2016, and expects the glide path of reducing the 
number of USDH assigned to Afghanistan to continue. The 
Committee expects the number of contractors in Afghanistan who 
are not working as local guards or working temporarily on U.S. 
diplomatic facility construction projects in Afghanistan to 
also be reduced.
    The Committee recommends $879,778,000 for diplomatic 
operations in Afghanistan under the Diplomatic and Consular 
Programs [D&CP;] and Embassy Security, Construction, and 
Maintenance [ESCM] headings, an amount equal to the President's 
budget request. Prior fiscal year carryover for diplomatic 
operations in Afghanistan under the D&CP; heading are projected 
to total $45,500,000.
    The Committee recognizes the opportunities and challenges 
presented by Afghanistan's peaceful political transition. 
Conditions on assistance are intended to leverage increased 
reforms and revenue generation by the Government of 
Afghanistan, and a national security interest waiver is 
included. Directives similar to the prior fiscal year are 
continued regarding the rule of law, programs to support and 
enhance opportunities for women, and efforts to expand regional 
linkages.
    The Committee expects that gender-related programs will 
remain a top priority of the Governments of the United States 
and Afghanistan, particularly those activities which prioritize 
women's inclusion in political and security processes and that 
address gender-based violence. The Committee supports the 
inclusion of women in reconciliation negotiations and 
reintegration efforts.
    The Committee urges the Department of State to support a 
comprehensive vetting process for Afghan prosecutors and judges 
in order to support effective criminal investigations.
    The Committee directs that not less than $10,000,000 shall 
be made available to continue programs that assist civilian 
victims of military operations, following consultation with the 
Committee.
    The Committee supports funding 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 provides that 
assistance to promote the economic empowerment of women be made 
available as grants to Afghan and international organizations, 
to the maximum extent practicable.
    Prior to the obligation of funds appropriated by the act 
for counter-narcotics programs in Afghanistan, the Secretary of 
State shall submit a report to the Committee describing: the 
Government of Afghanistan's counter-narcotics strategy; the 
Department of State's assessment of such strategy, including 
the specific objectives of the strategy, and the intended uses 
of funds in the act to support such objectives; the 
effectiveness of counter-narcotics programs supported by the 
U.S. and other international donors, and an assessment of the 
criteria used to measure and evaluate such effectiveness; the 
extent to which such programs are capable of being sustained by 
the Government of Afghanistan and other international donors; 
and criteria used by the Department of State to assess whether 
continued support for such programs is warranted in fiscal year 
2016.
    The Committee notes that section 1227(b) of the National 
Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 (H.R. 1735), as 
passed by the Senate on June 18, 2015, includes modifications 
to the Afghanistan Special Immigrant Visa [SIV] program. Not 
later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of 
State, in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, 
shall submit a report to the appropriate congressional 
committees on the number of applicants in the ``administrative 
processing'' phase of the SIV application process, by month, 
for the previous 12 month period, and the shortest and longest 
period of time an applicant has been in such phase. The report 
should also include a description of the steps the Departments 
of State and Homeland Security have taken to reduce the time 
that applicants are in such phase while also maintaining 
adequate security reviews and screenings of such applicants.
    In addition, the Committee requests GAO to examine the 
impact of the SIV program on Department of State and USAID 
operations in Afghanistan, assess the processes used to 
determine security threats posed to LES, and recommend options 
for the program into the future.

                         ASIA MARITIME DISPUTES

    The Committee notes the detrimental impact of maritime 
disputes in Asia on regional security and stability, and 
encourages the Department of State and USAID to monitor and 
mitigate such disputes, to the extent possible. The Committee 
encourages all parties to resolve disputes peacefully, 
particularly the People's Republic of China [PRC] whose 
provocative actions, including construction of artificial 
islands, fuel nationalist responses in other countries.

                          ATROCITY PREVENTION

    The Committee recommends not less than $500,000 under the 
D&CP; heading in title I of the act and $500,000 under the USAID 
Operating Expenses [OE] heading in title II of the act 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. The Under Secretary for 
Civilian Security, Democracy, and Human Rights, Department of 
State, shall administer such funds.
    In addition, the Committee recommends a total of 
$10,000,000 under the Complex Crises Fund [CCF], ESF, and INCLE 
headings for programs to support atrocity prevention 
activities, to be administered by the Under Secretary.

                      COUNTERING VIOLENT EXTREMISM

    Section 7073 of the act is a new general provision that 
requires: counterterrorism programs funded by the act to 
concurrently strengthen governance and the legitimacy of states 
in which Islamic or other extremist groups operate; funds be 
made available to counter the flow of foreign terrorist 
fighters to countries in which such groups operate; funds be 
made available to counter violent extremism, consistent with 
the definition of such activities in section 7034(r)(4) of the 
act; and funds be made available to strengthen governance and 
security in fragile states bordering countries in which violent 
extremist groups operate. Not later than 90 days after 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State is directed to 
post a list of such fragile states on the Department of State 
Web site, which should be identified in consultation with the 
heads of other relevant U.S. Government agencies.
    The provision also requires the establishment of a 
Countering Violent Extremism Assistance Coordinator within the 
Bureau of Counterterrorism, Department of State, to be assisted 
by a deputy appointed from USAID, who will be responsible for 
the overall management, coordination (within such agencies and 
with other donors), and execution of programs that seek to 
counter terrorism and violent extremism and support security 
sector reform funded by the act. The Assistance Coordinator is 
to design an overall strategy to implement such programs, as 
well as ensure sufficient monitoring and oversight of 
activities.
    The provision requires the Assistance Coordinator to report 
to the Coordinator for Counterterrorism, Department of State, 
who will have overall authority over the coordination of both 
counter terrorism and violent extremism activities. The 
Coordinator for Counterterrorism is deemed to be equivalent to 
the rank of Assistant Secretary of State to ensure appropriate 
bureaucratic weight for the coordination of such activities 
within the Department of State and USAID, as well as among 
other agencies.
    The Committee recommends not less than $141,152,000 for 
programs to counter violent extremism.

                           DEMOCRACY PROGRAMS

    Section 7032 of the act provides not less than 
$2,308,517,000 for democracy programs, which shall be allocated 
according to the following table:

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

    The provision includes $25,000,000 for democracy programs 
in countries experiencing political, ethnic, racial, religious, 
or other instability or conflict, or emerging from conflict, to 
be administered by the respective U.S. chief of mission.
    The provision continues certain authorities and conditions 
in a manner similar to the prior fiscal year, and requires that 
programs be designed to have grants and cooperative agreements 
as the primary delivery mechanism for democracy programs. In 
order to strengthen democracy promotion abroad, the provision 
requires reports on policy implementation, training for Foreign 
Service Officers [FSOs], and other matters. The provision also 
requires the Under Secretary for Civilian Security, Democracy, 
and Human Rights, Department of State, to review annual country 
strategies for nondemocratic or democratic transitioning 
countries to consider challenges to implementers and recipients 
of democracy programs, and to assess goals and objectives.
    To ensure that democracy programs receive sufficient pre-
obligation review and input by Department of State 
stakeholders, the provision requires the Deputy Secretary for 
Management and Resources to consult with the Under Secretary.
    The Secretary of State and the USAID Administrator, as 
appropriate, shall notify the Committee in writing within 30 
days of a decision to alter or close a democracy program due to 
the repressive nature of the host country government.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of presidential, 
parliamentary and local elections in sub-Saharan Africa as a 
contributor to stability and good governance. Not later than 90 
days after enactment of the act, the Committee directs the 
USAID Administrator, in consultation with the heads of relevant 
bureaus and offices within the Department of State, to submit a 
strategy to the appropriate congressional committees detailing 
programs and activities to support such elections through 
December 31, 2017.
    In addition to funds made available pursuant to section 
7032 of the act, the Committee includes $170,000,000 for the 
National Endowment for Democracy [NED] and recognizes the 
history of NED in conducting democracy programs abroad in the 
most challenging of environments, including during the Cold 
War. The act also includes $140,500,000 under the Democracy 
Fund [DF] heading, of which $85,500,000 is for the Bureau of 
Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor [DRL], Department of State, 
and $55,000,000 is for the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and 
Humanitarian Assistance [DCHA], USAID.

                                 EGYPT

    Section 7041(a) of the act conditions assistance for Egypt 
in a manner similar to the prior fiscal year, and includes a 
national security interest waiver. While the Committee shares 
the Government of Egypt's assessments regarding the threats 
posed by Islamic extremists in neighboring countries and the 
Sinai, the Committee remains concerned with the status of 
democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in Egypt. The 
Committee appreciates efforts by the Departments of State and 
Defense to update bilateral relations with Egypt, and expects 
that respect for human rights and the rule of law remain part 
of the strategic dialogue.
    The Committee notes that section 7041(a)(4) of the act 
requires the Secretary of State to take all practicable steps 
to ensure that mechanisms are in place for monitoring, 
oversight, and control of assistance for Egypt, and emphasizes 
that section 620M of the FAA applies to funds made available by 
the act for the Egyptian security forces.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the USAID 
Administrator, shall submit to the Committees a report on the 
hepatitis C pilot program initiated in fiscal year 2015, 
including the goals and benchmarks established in consultation 
with the Government of Egypt, the anticipated number of 
recipients, efforts to coordinate such program with other U.S. 
Government agencies, and the annual expenditure of the 
Government of Egypt on programs to combat hepatitis C.

                    INTERNATIONAL RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

    Section 7033 of the act is a new general provision that 
underscores the importance of international religious freedom 
in the conduct of U.S. foreign policy. The provision provides 
$5,000,000 for the Office of the Ambassador-at-Large for 
International Religious Freedom, and $1,000,000 for the Special 
Envoy to Promote Religious Freedom in the Near East and South 
Central Asia, including for support staff. The Committee 
expects the Special Envoy position to be filled expeditiously.
    The provision increases assistance for international 
religious freedom programs abroad above the budget request, and 
provides $20,000,000 for such programs, including programs to 
protect vulnerable and persecuted religious minorities, and 
provides the Ambassador-at-Large with responsibility for the 
uses of these funds. The provision requires international 
broadcasting efforts to include programs to support 
international religious freedom, as appropriate, and includes 
non-state entities in the annual review required by section 
402(b)(1) of the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 
(Public Law 105-292). Finally, the provision requires the 
Secretary of State to make a determination whether the ongoing 
violence in the Middle East against Christians or in Burma 
against the Rohingya people constitutes genocide, as defined in 
section 1091 of title 18, United States Code, and to recommend 
a strategy, as applicable, should such violence be determined 
to constitute genocide.
    The Committee recommends $1,000,000 for programs to combat 
anti-Semitism abroad.
    The Committee urges the Assistant Secretary for DRL to 
implement Foreign Service Institute training for all DRL 
employees, including those within the Office of Religious 
Freedom, on the importance of international religious freedom.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of the proper 
designations of countries of particular concern [CPC] for 
religious freedom. If the U.S. Commission on International 
Religious Freedom recommends a country for CPC designation, and 
such country is not designated as a CPC, the Secretary of State 
shall provide the rationale for not designating the recommended 
country a CPC to the appropriate congressional committees 
within 30 days of such decision.
    The Committee continues to support programs to assist 
vulnerable Iraqi ethnic and religious minorities, including the 
Christian community particularly in the Nineveh Plains, from 
funds appropriated by the act for assistance for Iraq.

                            INTERNET FREEDOM

    Section 7078 of the act provides $50,500,000 for programs 
to promote Internet freedom globally in a manner similar to the 
prior fiscal year. The Committee notes that the GAO audit on 
Internet freedom programs has not been finalized, and expects 
that the findings of the audit will inform modifications to 
such programs in subsequent fiscal years. The Committee expects 
a portion of these funds to be used to support Internet freedom 
in Cuba.

                                  IRAN

    The Committee remains concerned with the nuclear ambitions 
of the Government of Iran and recognizes that an increase in 
Iranian influence in the Middle East and South Asia will have 
significant repercussions on the security and stability of key 
allies. As with Russia and the PRC, the rise of Iran creates a 
regional challenge for the U.S. which will require the 
following to peacefully address: deft diplomacy; additional 
military and foreign assistance for states in the region, 
including Israel and Jordan; increased direct foreign 
investment; and coherent counter influence programs. Section 
7041(b) of the act continues provisions regarding Iran similar 
to the prior fiscal year.
    The Committee is concerned with Pastor Saeed Abedini who 
remains imprisoned in Iran, and urges the Secretary of State to 
seek Pastor Abedini's release and to keep the Committee 
informed of his health and welfare.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit a 
report to the appropriate congressional committees not later 
than 180 days after enactment of the act detailing the steps 
taken by the Secretary and the U.S. Ambassador to the United 
Nations to implement section 415 of the Iran Threat Reduction 
and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-158).
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit a 
report to the appropriate congressional committees not later 
than 90 days after enactment of the act and every 90 days 
thereafter until September 30, 2016 detailing Iran's current 
financial support for promoting terrorism and regional 
instability, including the financial institutions facilitating 
Iran's support, and any significant changes in such support 
between reporting periods.
    Not later than 180 days after the enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of the 
Treasury, shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees on the status of bilateral U.S. and 
multilateral sanctions against Iran and actions taken by the 
U.S. and the international community to enforce such sanctions, 
including for proliferation, terrorism, and human rights 
violations. The report should include: a list of all sanctions; 
details on any foreign entity the Secretary of State believes 
may have violated such sanctions; a description of the actions 
taken by the U.S. to investigate sanctions violations; and a 
description of efforts to strengthen and enforce such 
sanctions.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State, in 
consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury and the 
Director of National Intelligence, to submit a report to the 
appropriate congressional committees, not later than 120 days 
after enactment of the act and every 120 days thereafter until 
September 30, 2016, detailing, to the extent known: the 
monetary value of any direct or indirect forms of sanctions 
relief that Iran has received since the Joint Plan of Action 
first entered into effect; how Iran has used funds made 
available through sanctions relief; whether any such funds have 
facilitated the ability of Iran to provide support to terrorist 
organizations (including Hamas, Hezbollah, and Palestinian 
Islamic Jihad) or to the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria; 
and the extent to which any senior officials of the Government 
of Iran have diverted any funds from sanctions relief into 
their personal accounts. The report shall be submitted in 
unclassified form, but may include a classified annex.

                                  IRAQ

    Section 7041(c) of the act conditions assistance for Iraq 
in a manner similar to prior fiscal years. Absent the ability 
of the Government of Iraq to govern in an inclusive manner and 
to maintain discipline on fields of battle, the threats posed 
by Islamic extremists in Iraq will remain a constant and 
chronic threat. The Committee recognizes the effectiveness of 
the Kurdish Regional Government [KRG] in countering Islamic 
extremists, and supports continued engagement with KRG security 
forces.
    The Committee recommends $1,115,646,000 for diplomatic 
operations in Iraq under the D&CP; and ESCM headings, an amount 
equal to the President's budget request. Prior fiscal year 
carryover for diplomatic operations in Iraq under the D&CP; 
heading are projected to total $76,517,000.
    The Committee recommends not less than $5,000,000 for the 
Marla Ruzicka Iraqi War Victims Fund.
    The Committee expects the administration to ensure 
appropriate end-use monitoring of equipment provided under the 
Foreign Military Financing Program [FMF] heading.

    The act provides $3,100,000,000 for assistance for Israel 
under the FMF heading, which is equal to the budget request.
    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.

                                 JORDAN

    Section 7041(d) of the act provides a total of 
$1,175,000,000 for assistance for Jordan, of which: 
$1,000,000,000 is to support the Memorandum of Understanding 
[MoU] on Strategic Partnership between the Hashemite Kingdom of 
Jordan and the United States, signed on March 2, 2015; 
$75,000,000 is for additional budget support (totaling 
$204,000,000 for such purposes when added to amounts made 
available under the MoU); and $100,000,000 is for water sector 
support, which is intended as a U.S. contribution for the 
initial phase of the Red Sea-Dead Sea water project, pending 
completion of relevant studies and assessments. The Committee 
recognizes the importance of this project to Jordan's 
development, as well as regional cooperation between Jordan, 
Israel, and the Palestinians.
    The provision provides that additional funds shall be made 
available for programs to implement the Jordan Response Plan 
2015 for the Syria Crisis, including assistance for host 
communities in Jordan.
    Section 7081 of the act is a new general provision that 
requires the Secretary of State to submit a report on ways to 
expand access by local communities and central governments in 
middle income countries to additional development assistance 
and IFI financing for the purposes of alleviating economic and 
social burdens caused by significant internally displaced 
person [IDP] and refugee populations. The Committee recognizes 
such burdens imposed on Jordan by the crises in Syria, Iraq, 
and West Bank and Gaza.

                                LEBANON

    Section 7041(e) of the act conditions assistance for 
Lebanon in a manner similar to the prior fiscal year. Section 
7081 of the act is intended to help alleviate economic and 
social burdens caused by significant refugee populations from 
Syria.
    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 foreign terrorist organization [FTO] 
pursuant to section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act 
(Public Law 82-814), 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 that of the funds appropriated 
under the ESF heading for assistance for Lebanon, not less than 
$12,000,000 be made available for scholarships for students in 
Lebanon with high financial need to attend not-for-profit 
educational institutions in Lebanon that meet standards 
comparable to those required for U.S. accreditation. The 
institutions and students are encouraged to pay as much of the 
cost of the education as possible in order to share the 
commitment to the future of Lebanon and to maximize the number 
of students assisted. All students, including graduates of 
public and private secondary schools, should be eligible for 
scholarships based on needs, academic record, and potential to 
contribute to the long-term political, economic, and social 
development of Lebanon.

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 on 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.

                                PAKISTAN

    Section 7044(d) of the act continues conditions on 
assistance for Pakistan in a manner similar to the prior fiscal 
year. The Committee recognizes the improvement in bilateral 
relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan, and encourages 
continued cooperation on issues of mutual interest, including 
combatting extremism, reducing corruption, strengthening due 
process and the rule of law, increasing access to energy 
(including renewable energy), and reducing poverty.
    The Committee recommends $111,321,000 for diplomatic 
operations in Pakistan under the D&CP; heading, an amount equal 
to the President's budget request. Prior fiscal year carryover 
for diplomatic operations in Pakistan under such heading are 
projected to total $6,300,000.
    The act continues to withhold $33,000,000 from obligation 
until the Secretary of State reports to the Committee that Dr. 
Shakil Afridi has been released from prison and cleared of all 
charges relating to the assistance provided to the U.S. in 
locating Osama bin Laden.
    The Committee expects the Department of State to support 
programs targeting the recruitment, retention, and 
professionalization of women in Pakistan's police forces and 
women employed in the judicial sector, including through 
training and equipment, strengthening of professional networks, 
and promoting gender-sensitive training. Funds should support 
specialized units and shelters to respond to violence against 
women, as well as legal aid programs.
    The Committee is concerned with actions by the Government 
of Pakistan to limit the ability of nongovernmental 
organizations [NGOs] to operate effectively in the country. The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to take all 
practicable steps to ensure the Government of Pakistan's NGO 
registration process does not unduly limit the ability of these 
organizations to provide assistance in high-need areas, and to 
consult with the Committee on the viability of providing 
additional assistance should the registration process severely 
restrict the ability of such organizations to operate.
    The Committee notes that section 7044(d)(6) of the act 
requires the Secretary of State to take all practicable steps 
to ensure that mechanisms are in place for monitoring, 
oversight, and control of assistance for Pakistan, and 
emphasizes that section 620M of the FAA applies to funds made 
available by the act for the Pakistani security forces.
    The Committee directs that not less than $10,000,000 shall 
be made available to continue programs that assist civilian 
victims of military operations, following consultation with the 
Committee.

  THE PLAN OF THE ALLIANCE FOR PROSPERITY IN THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE OF 
                            CENTRAL AMERICA

    Section 7045(a) of the act includes a new provision 
providing up to a total of $675,322,000 and a framework for the 
delivery of U.S. assistance for the implementation of the Plan 
of the Alliance for Prosperity in the Northern Triangle of 
Central America, through the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in 
Central America. The Committee expects that if successfully 
implemented, the Plan will help reduce illegal immigration to 
the U.S. in a manner that bolsters regional governance, 
prosperity, and security.
    Recognizing the chronic development challenges to El 
Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, the provision includes pre-
obligation conditions (including submission of a multi-year 
spend plan and a Secretary of State certification on certain 
commitments and reforms) and periodic reviews and suspension of 
assistance should objectives or indicators not be met in a 
timely manner. The provision requires a dollar-for-dollar cost 
matching requirement to ensure political will for the 
implementation of the Plan is sustained. The Secretary of State 
is required to submit a report to the appropriate congressional 
committees detailing the economic investment conditions in such 
countries, and an assessment of outstanding commercial disputes 
between U.S. entities and the governments of those countries. 
Transfer authority is also provided for funds from the 
Development Assistance [DA] heading for the Inter-American 
Development Bank [IDB] and the Inter-American Foundation [IAF] 
in support of implementation of the Plan. The Committee 
recommends that up to $3,000,000 for the IDB for technical 
assistance and up to $15,000,000 for the IAF may be 
transferred.
    The Committee recommends not less than $5,000,000 for the 
International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala, which 
has played a key role in assisting Guatemalan authorities in 
investigating and prosecuting corruption, extortion, and human 
rights cases. The Secretary of State is directed to consult 
with the Committee prior to the obligation of such funds.
    The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the U.S. 
executive directors of the World Bank and the IDB to vote 
against any loan, credit, grant, or guarantee for Guatemala, 
except to meet basic human needs, unless the Secretary of the 
Treasury certifies and reports to the Committee that the 
Government of Guatemala is financing and implementing the 
Reparations Plan for Damages Suffered by the Communities 
Affected by the Construction of the Chixoy Hydroelectric Dam 
(April 2010). The Secretary of the Treasury shall also instruct 
the executive directors to submit a report to the Committee not 
later than 30 days after enactment of the act and every 90 days 
thereafter until September 30, 2016, on actions taken in the 
previous 90 days by such institutions and the Government of 
Guatemala to finance and implement the Reparations Plan.
    The Committee supports the establishment of an 
international commission against impunity in Honduras, where 
similar challenges exist as in Guatemala. The Committee 
recommends not less than $2,000,000 for a U.S. contribution 
from funds available for assistance for Honduras, if the U.N. 
and the Government of Honduras agree to establish such a 
commission in Honduras.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of judicial reform 
in order to counter impunity and corruption in Central America. 
Not less than 180 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report on lessons learned 
from the Merida Initiative and Plan Colombia with regard to 
judicial reform efforts, how such lessons can be applied to 
Central America, and how U.S. and Latin American legal 
practitioners could contribute to judicial reform in the 
region.

                               SRI LANKA

    Section 7044(e) of the act provides not less than 
$40,417,000 for assistance for Sri Lanka for programs to 
further democracy, human rights, and economic development, 
particularly in areas recovering from ethnic and religious 
conflict. Funding is also made available to assist in the 
identification and resolution of cases of missing persons.
    The Committee encourages continued political and economic 
reforms in Sri Lanka and finds that greater transparency and 
accountability can serve as a catalyst for foreign direct 
investment. The Committee includes a Secretary of State 
certification requirement, prior to the provision of assistance 
for the central government of Sri Lanka, that such government 
is addressing the underlying causes of conflict in Sri Lanka 
and increasing accountability and transparency.
    Funds appropriated under the International Military 
Education and Training [IMET] heading are limited to 
international peacekeeping training. The Committee notes that 
the deepening of military-to-military relations must coincide 
with the adoption and implementation of meaningful political 
reforms.
    No funds under the FMF heading are requested for Sri Lanka, 
and none are provided by the act. The Committee recommends the 
Department of State establish benchmarks prior to requesting 
such assistance, including: the conduct of credible 
investigations into and prosecution of those responsible for 
war crimes committed by Sri Lankan security forces and the 
Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam; cooperation with U.N. 
investigations of war crimes and violations of international 
law; demilitarizing public administration and development 
activities in the north, and returning land confiscated by the 
military to its owners; providing access for humanitarian and 
human rights organizations to the north; and resolving cases of 
missing persons.

                                 SYRIA

    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. The provision also 
provides that funds shall be made available for a new program 
to build the capacity of Syrian diaspora-led organizations and 
local Syrian civil society to address the immediate and long-
term needs of the Syrian people inside Syria in a manner that 
supports both the sustainability of such organizations and the 
goals and objectives of the comprehensive Syrian strategy 
required in section 7041(i)(3) of the Department of State, 
Foreign Operations and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 
2014 (division K of Public Law 113-76). The Committee intends 
that this program empower such organizations by establishing 
the underpinnings necessary for a more direct relationship with 
the Department of State and USAID, including greater authority 
in decisionmaking on the uses of such funds. The Committee 
recognizes that Syrian civil society must have a central role 
in the establishment of a post-crisis Syrian state that is 
stable and secure, and that will not pose a threat to the 
region.
    The Committee directs the Department of State and USAID, in 
cooperation with relevant U.N. agencies and organizations, to 
include mental health and psychosocial support services as a 
core component in programs addressing the needs of Syrian 
refugees, to be implemented according to Inter-Agency Standing 
Committee Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support 
in Emergency Settings.
    Not later than 30 days after enactment of the act, and 
prior to the obligation of funds made available for assistance 
for Syria, the Secretary of State shall submit to the 
appropriate congressional committees an update to the strategy 
required in section 7041(i)(3) of division K of Public Law 113-
76.

                                 TIBET

    Section 7043(f) of the act continues support for assistance 
for Tibet in a manner similar to prior fiscal years. The 
Committee directs that assistance for Tibetan communities in 
India and Nepal include development programs.
    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 funding for exchange programs 
with participants from Tibet under the Educational and Cultural 
Exchange Programs heading will be no less than the fiscal year 
2015 levels.
    The Committee supports the President's budget request for 
the Voice for America [VOA] and Radio Free Asia [RFA] Tibetan 
services and expects the BBG to continue broadcasting at not 
less than fiscal year 2015 levels.
    The Committee provides not less than $14,000,000 for 
development programs, programs 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 Tibetans in India and Nepal. The Committee urges the 
Government of Nepal to uphold its international obligations to 
Tibetan refugees, and expects that funds made available under 
the Migration and Refugee Assistance [MRA] and International 
Disaster Assistance [IDA] headings will be made available to 
address the needs of Tibetan communities impacted by the April 
and May 2015 earthquakes in Nepal.
    Not less than 180 days after enactment of the act, the 
USAID Administrator shall submit a report to the Committee 
assessing the feasibility and requirements of establishing 
Tibetan banking facilities in India for use by Tibetan 
refugees.

                                UKRAINE

    Section 7070 of the act provides 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. In order to more effectively counter 
Russian influence and pressure, the Committee has reestablished 
the Assistance for Europe, Eurasia and Central Asia [AEECA] 
account, which was comprised of two accounts initially 
established following the fall of the Soviet Union and 
enactment of the FREEDOM Support Act (Public Law 102-511) and 
the Support for Eastern European Democracy [SEED] Act (Public 
Law 101-179).
    The Committee reiterates the importance of the 
international community to effectively challenge Russia's 
invasion of Ukraine. The Committee does not support assistance 
to any country that recognizes Russian territorial acquisition, 
including through proxies.
    Section 7034(o)(1) of the act provides authority for loan 
guarantees for Ukraine, and the Committee recommends the 
President's budget request of $275,000,000 for such purpose.
    The Committee notes that the authority contained in section 
8003(b) of the act for the transfer of $15,000,000 to the 
Global Security Contingency Fund is for programs for Ukraine.
    The Committee supports efforts to reduce Russian control of 
energy supplies to Ukraine and other countries in the region, 
including by promoting energy efficiency, diversification, and 
the exploration of opportunities to develop renewable sources 
of energy for such countries.
    The Committee is aware of the high incidence of credit card 
fraud reportedly originating from Ukraine that places the 
personal information of American citizens at risk. The 
Committee encourages the Secretary of State to seek extradition 
authority to the United States for Ukrainian nationals engaged 
in such fraud, and to provide assistance, as appropriate, to 
help Ukrainian authorities address this crime.

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, except that the waiver for the provisions of 
section 1003 of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal 
Years 1988 and 1989 (Public Law 100-204) regarding Palestine 
Liberation Organization offices in the U.S. requires a 
Presidential determination that the Palestinians have not, 
after the date of enactment of the act, taken any action with 
respect to the International Criminal Court [ICC] that is 
intended to influence a determination by the ICC to initiate or 
support certain investigations against Israeli nationals.
    The Committee recognizes the important role of the United 
States Security Coordinator in Jerusalem, and requests that the 
Coordinator consults with the Committee in the event 
significant programmatic changes are made or delays occur.
    In submitting the report required in section 7041(i)(3) of 
the act, the Secretary of State shall also include a 
description of steps taken by the Palestinian Authority to 
prevent any payment to individuals who were imprisoned and 
convicted for acts of terrorism during the previous calendar 
year.

                   Administration of Foreign Affairs

                    DIPLOMATIC AND CONSULAR PROGRAMS

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

    Enduring operations.................................   6,343,213,000
    Overseas contingency operations.....................   1,884,569,000

    The Committee recommends $6,343,213,000 for Diplomatic and 
Consular Programs, of which up to $2,094,707,000 is for 
Worldwide Security Protection [WSP]. An additional 
$1,884,569,000 in title VIII under this heading is designated 
for OCO.
    The Committee recommendation separates the functions funded 
under this heading to provide transparency in the uses of 
funds. However, the Department of State may reprogram funds, as 
necessary, subject to prior notification of the Committee.
    Human Resources.--The Committee recommends $2,238,853,000 
for all U.S. direct hire salaries at overseas and domestic U.S. 
diplomatic missions. With the exception of those specifically 
mentioned in this report, including five additional positions 
for the Bureau of Intelligence and Research [INR], the 
Committee does not recommend funding for new positions. The 
Committee supports filling, as necessary, existing positions 
that become vacant due to attrition. If the Department intends 
to create new positions, the Committee will consider 
reprogramming proposals, especially if funds for such purpose 
are derived from the elimination of redundancies or 
inefficiencies.
    Overseas Programs.--The Committee recommends $1,561,840,000 
for the operational programs of the Department of State's 
regional bureaus, which are responsible for managing U.S. 
foreign policy through bilateral and multilateral 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 does not include funding for Embassy 
operations, including WSP diplomatic security costs, for 
Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq under this heading in this 
title. Funding for such purposes is included under title VIII 
of the act.
    The Committee recommends $11,000,000 for Conflict 
Stabilization Operations [CSO] salaries and administrative 
expenses through a transfer of funds from the D&CP; heading to 
the CSO heading. An additional $10,000,000 in title VIII under 
the CSO heading is designated for OCO. The Secretary may 
provide additional funds as necessary for the salary and 
benefit costs of current CSO staff employed as of the date of 
enactment of the act through an additional transfer of funds 
from the D&CP; heading to the CSO heading, subject to prior 
notification of the Committee. The Committee recognizes the 
contribution of CSO to the crisis in Syria, but is concerned 
that CSO lacks a well-defined and long-term strategic purpose. 
If the Department of State fails to adequately address this 
concern in a timely manner, the Committee will not include 
funding for CSO in fiscal year 2017.
    The Committee recognizes the invaluable contributions to 
the conduct of diplomacy by LES at missions abroad. The 
Committee expects the Secretary to continue funding overseas 
inflation and LES wage increases, including funds to annualize 
increases provided in fiscal year 2015, through funds made 
available in the Buying Power Maintenance account.
    Diplomatic Policy and Support.--The Committee recommends 
$787,951,000 for the operational programs of Department of 
State functional bureaus to provide overall policy direction, 
coordination, and program management among U.S. missions 
abroad, and an additional $743,000 for the International 
Chancery Center. The Committee recommends not less than 
$5,086,000 for salary and program costs of the Office for 
Global Women's Issues within the Office of the Secretary; not 
less than $33,516,000 for salary and program costs for DRL; and 
not less than $34,588,000 for salary and program costs for the 
Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific 
Affairs, of which not less than $4,290,000 is for salary and 
program costs for the Office of Oceans and Polar Affairs. Of 
the funds made available to DRL, $5,000,000 is for the Office 
of the Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, 
$1,000,000 is for the Special Envoy to Promote Religious 
Freedom in the Near East and South Central Asia, and $7,000,000 
is for Leahy vetting. The Committee notes that no funds are 
included for additional positions related to the Green Climate 
Fund, as no funds were requested for this purpose.
    Security Programs.--The Committee recommends $1,753,826,000 
for the operation of security programs, including

    Section 7004(h) 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 prevent or 
respond to unforeseen 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 of the act provides authority for the 
Department of State to award local guard contracts on the basis 
of best value as determined by a cost-technical tradeoff 
analysis, as described in FAR part 15.101. This authority was 
previously extended only to high-risk, high-threat posts. The 
Committee recognizes that such authority is essential to 
improving security at missions abroad.
    The act provides the additional funding requested to 
continue implementation of the Benghazi Accountability Review 
Board [ARB] recommendations. The Secretary of State shall 
submit an updated report to the appropriate congressional 
committees detailing the status of the Department of State's 
implementation of the 29 recommendations to improve security at 
diplomatic facilities overseas in the ARB report and relevant 
recommendations of previous ARBs. For any recommendation not 
fully implemented, the report shall include an estimated 
completion date and cost of implementation. The report shall be 
updated not later than 180 days after the first report is 
submitted.

                             PROGRAM ISSUES

    American Prisoners of Conscience.--Not later than 90 days 
after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State is directed 
to provide the appropriate congressional committees, to the 
maximum extent practicable, a list of American citizens and 
nationals imprisoned or otherwise detained by foreign 
governments who the Secretary considers to be prisoners of 
conscience.
    American Victims of Libyan Terrorism.--Regarding the Libyan 
Claims Resolution Act (Public Law 110-301) and the Claims 
Settlement Agreement Between the United States of America and 
the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, the 
Committee notes that funds may remain in the United States 
Treasury following the adjudication of claims referred to the 
Foreign Claims Settlement Commission pursuant to the letter of 
November 27, 2013 from Acting Legal Adviser Mary E. McLeod to 
the Honorable Anuj C. Desai and Sylvia M. Becker and the 
payment of all awards certified by the Foreign Claims 
Settlement Commission pursuant to the aforementioned referral. 
Not later than 30 days after the enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees on the feasibility of using any of the 
remaining funds to allow for the renewal, resubmission, and 
reconsideration of claims under Category C of the January 15, 
2009 Letter from the Honorable John B. Bellinger, III, Legal 
Adviser, Department of State, to the Honorable Maurice J. 
Tamargo, Chairman, Foreign Claims Settlement Commission 
(Referral Letter) to the Foreign Claims Settlement Commission 
for claims previously denied by the Commission.
    The Arctic.--The Committee recognizes the strategic 
importance of the Arctic region to the long-term economic and 
national security interests of the United States and notes that 
the U.S. assumed the Chair of the Arctic Council in April 2015. 
The Committee recommends that funding made available to the 
Office of Oceans and Polar Affairs be used to support the 
chairmanship of the Arctic Council, and encourages the 
Department of State to increase the number of personnel 
assigned to Arctic Council issues.
    The Committee also supports the participation of American 
indigenous communities in the Arctic Council, and section 
7034(d)(3) of the act continues authority to use up to $500,000 
for grants to support the application of science and technology 
to foreign policy issues in the Arctic region.
    Bureau of Intelligence and Research.--The Committee 
recommendation for INR includes $500,000 for an additional five 
positions for the Mission Support Project.

National Security Council is leading an Interagency Policy 
Committee [IPC] to review the ``U.S. Entity Regional 
Recommendation for the Future of the Columbia River Treaty 
after 2024'' and determine U.S. policies related to modernizing 
the Columbia River Treaty, and the Committee urges the 
Department of State to begin negotiations with Canada as soon 
as the IPC process is completed. The Committee understands that 
such negotiations must take place in calendar year 2015 in 
order for the new agreement to be implemented by 2025.
    Cultural Heritage.--The Committee recommends $5,750,000 for 
Cultural Heritage Programs, including for not less than five 
large-scale projects, and $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. The Committee 
recognizes the public diplomacy role of this program, as well 
as its contribution in preserving some of the world's 
irreplaceable cultural antiquities. As in past years, the 
Department of State should consult with the Committee prior to 
the obligation of funds.
    Cyber Issues.--The Committee recommends not less than the 
President's budget request for the Office of the Coordinator 
for Cyber Issues.
    Foreign Affairs Security Training Center.--The Committee 
notes the continued uncertainties surrounding the justification 
for the Foreign Affairs Security Training Center [FASTC]. 
Section 7004(f) of the act requires the Secretary of State, the 
Comptroller General, and the OMB Director to take certain 
actions to develop and review a comprehensive cost-benefit 
analysis of the proposed Center. The President's budget request 
for FASTC is included in the act, but such amounts, and 
unobligated funds appropriated in prior acts making 
appropriations for the Department of State, foreign operations, 
and related programs, are not available for obligation until 
after such analysis takes place and the appropriate 
congressional committees have been consulted.
    Holocaust Era Assets.--The Committee directs the Secretary 
of State, with the assistance of the Office of the Special 
Envoy for Holocaust Issues, to include within the first Annual 
Report on International Religious Freedom submitted not later 
than 180 days after the date of the enactment of the act an 
assessment of national laws or enforceable policies in, as 
appropriate, foreign countries regarding the return of or 
restitution for wrongfully confiscated or transferred Holocaust 
era assets and compliance with the objectives of the 2009 
Terezin Declaration on Holocaust Era Assets and Related Issues, 
to include: the return to the rightful owner of any property 
that was wrongfully confiscated or transferred to another 
individual by Nazi, Nazi collaborator, or Communist regimes (if 
return of such property is no longer possible, the provision of 
comparable substitute property or the payment of equitable 
compensation); the return to Jewish communities of any 
religious or communal property that was stolen as a result of 
the Holocaust or subsequently nationalized by Communist 
regimes; the use of the Washington Conference Principles on 
Nazi-Confiscated Art, agreed to December 3, 1998, in settling 
all claims involving publically and privately held movable 
property; the mechanism for and demonstrable progress on the 
resolution of claims for United States citizen Holocaust 
survivors and United States citizen family members of Holocaust 
victims; and recommendations for actions to be taken by the 
country, and the United States Government, to improve country 
progress on the return of or restitution for wrongfully

expenses to implement section 620M of the FAA.
    International Parental Child Abduction.--The Committee 
directs the Secretary of State to work with countries that are 
not signatories to the Convention on the Civil Aspects of 
International Child Abduction to resolve international parental 
child abduction cases.
    North Atlantic Treaty Organization.--The Committee directs 
the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of 
Defense, to submit a report to the appropriate congressional 
committees, including the defense committees, describing 
actions taken by the administration to encourage the 
governments of North Atlantic Treaty Organization member 
countries to increase national budget allocations on defense to 
at least 2 percent of respective gross domestic product.
    Office of Terrorism Finance and Economic Sanctions 
Policy.--The Committee recommends not less than $5,100,000 for 
this office which develops strategies, in conjunction with 
other bureaus and agencies, for implementing sanctions regimes.
    Prevention of Discrimination and Abuse.--The Committee 
directs the Assistant Secretary of State for DRL, in 
consultation with the Assistant Administrator for DCHA and the 
Special Envoy for the Human Rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, 
and Transgender [LGBT] Persons, to submit a report not later 
than 120 days after enactment of the act on steps taken to 
implement the strategy to prevent discrimination and abuse 
against LGBT persons abroad, and to respond to discriminatory 
laws, including in The Gambia and Nigeria. Funding is 
recommended for the Special Envoy and for programs administered 
by the USAID Senior LBGT Coordinator.
    Real Property.--The Committee expects the Secretary of 
State to help facilitate resolutions of commercial disputes for 
U.S. entities seeking return of real property seized, held, or 
expropriated by foreign governments, as appropriate.
    Records Management and Information Access.--Section 7077 of 
the act provides that funds under this heading and the USAID OE 
heading are made available for the purposes of Federal records 
management pursuant to the Federal Records Act (44 U.S.C. 
Chapters 21, 29, 31, and 33) and other applicable records 
management statutes, regulations, or policies for the 
Department of State and USAID, except that no funds may be used 
to support the use or establishment of email accounts or email 
servers created outside the .gov domain or not fitted for 
automated records management as part of a Federal Government 
records management program.
    The Committee recommends $2,400,000 for the Document Review 
Unit at the Department of State, and requests the Secretary of 
State to submit to the appropriate congressional committees, 
beginning not later than 90 days after enactment of the act and 
every 90 days thereafter until September 30, 2016, a report 
detailing the number of document requests pending by each 
congressional committee and the status of meeting such 
requests. The report should also include a description of the 
uses of funds previously made available for such Unit, the 
number of full-time employees assigned to the Unit (to include 
salary and job descriptions), and an assessment of the Unit's 
time spent on congressional requests (to include estimated time 
for completion of requests and a description of the technology 
employed to meet such requests).
    The Committee recommends not less than $29,000,000 of funds 
made available to the Bureau of Administration be used to 
support processing and responding to Freedom of Information Act 
[FOIA] requests received by the Department of State. The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit a report, 
beginning not later than 90 days after enactment of the act and 
every 90 days thereafter until September 30, 2016, describing 
the plan to reduce the backlog of FOIA requests, including the 
number of full-time employees assigned to such task (to include 
salary and job descriptions), an assessment of the amount of 
time spent on responding to such requests, and a description of 
the technology employed to meet such requests.
    Report on Purchase of Furnishings.--Not later than 180 days 
after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall submit 
a report to the appropriate congressional committees detailing 
efforts taken by the Department of State to purchase 
furnishings for overseas diplomatic facilities that 
appropriately meet representational needs at best value, in a 
manner that promotes and supports American jobs and industry, 
and that ensures consistent, high safety standards as 
furnishings manufactured in the United States.
    Trade and Other Sanctions.--The Committee directs the 
Secretary of State to consult with the appropriate 
congressional committees on sanctions options against any 
country that provides asylum to Edward Snowden, including 
revocation or suspension of trade privileges and preferences.
    Trafficking in Persons.--The Committee recommends

    The Committee recommends $590,900,000 for Educational and 
Cultural Exchange Programs.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of international 
exchanges and expects that programs funded under this heading 
will support U.S. foreign policy objectives and are 
appropriately coordinated with regional bureaus.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to broaden 
participation of high priority groups that have been 
traditionally under-represented, such as youth and other 
individuals from rural and impoverished areas and minorities. 
The Committee supports expanding participation in educational 
exchanges of female students from underserved populations, 
including from countries in Africa.
    The Committee supports the Fulbright Program, the Benjamin 
Gilman International Scholarship Program, International Visitor 
Leadership Program, Citizen Exchange youth programs, and 
educator programs. The Committee intends that funding for the 
Benjamin Gilman International Scholarship Program will be no 
less than the fiscal year 2015 level.
    The Committee urges the Secretary to continue to give 
priority to critical language programs for American students, 
and exchange programs with countries of high national security 
importance, including those with significant Muslim populations 
and from countries of the former Soviet Union.
    The Committee is concerned that the Department of State 
does not adequately coordinate the efforts of Department 
bureaus to counter Russian influence and pressure, and directs 
the Secretary of State to review Russian language programs 
supported by funds appropriated in the act and conducted in 
countries in which Russia seeks to expand its influence to 
ensure that such programs do not endorse, support, or otherwise 
further Russian regional aspirations. The Secretary shall 
transmit the findings of the review to the appropriate 
congressional committees in a timely manner.
    The Committee supports efforts to reduce the administrative 
costs of exchange programs and expects that savings from such 
efforts will be used to increase the number of participants.

    Au Pair Program.--The Committee is aware of reports that 
participants in the Au Pair program have been compensated at 
the Federal minimum wage level which in some instances is below 
State and local minimum wage levels. The Committee directs the 
Secretary of State to report to the Committee not later than 45 
days after enactment of the act on whether State and local 
minimum wage levels apply to the Au Pair program, and, if so, 
the Department of State guidelines for applying such wage 
levels.
    Changes to Educational and Cultural Exchange Programs.--The 
Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit the report 
required under this heading in the Department of State, Foreign 
Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2015, 
(division J of Public Law 113-235) to the Committee in the 
manner described, except that the period of reporting shall be 
for modifications made to such programs since calendar year 
2014.
    Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program.--The Committee 
is concerned with the Department of State decision to reduce 
funding by $2,000,000 for the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange 
Program in fiscal year 2015, and recommends $4,000,000 for the 
program to avoid such reduction in fiscal year 2016.
    Exchanges Rapid Response Program.--The Committee does not 
include the President's budget request for a new Exchanges 
Rapid Response program under this title.
    J. Christopher Stevens Virtual Exchange Program.--The 
Committee continues to recognize the value of virtual exchanges 
as a means to broaden understanding and engagement between 
U.S., Middle Eastern, and North African youth in a cost-
effective manner, and recommends $5,000,000 for the J. 
Christopher Stevens Virtual Exchange program. The Committee 
intends that funds made available for this program be matched 
by sources other than the U.S. Government, including from 
private foundations, foreign governments, and the private 
sector, to the maximum extent practicable.
    Muskie Fellowships.--The Committee recognizes that the 
Muskie Fellowship Program has helped individuals from Eurasia 
and Central Asia to promote mutual understanding, build 
democracy, and foster the transition to market economies, and 
the act requires that a portion of Fulbright awards from this 
region are designated as Edmund S. Muskie Fellowships.
    Summer Work Travel and High School Exchange Programs.--The 
Committee directs the Department of State to inform the 
Committee in a timely manner of any instances of coercion, 
exploitation, or other abuse associated with the Summer Work 
Travel and high school exchange programs.
    A provision under this heading in the act permits 
participants in the Summer Work Travel program to be employed 
in seafood processing positions until September 30, 2016, if 
such placements comply with all requirements of the program. As 
with other positions, Summer Work Travel sponsors shall, upon 
request, provide evidence to the Department of State that such 
requirements are being met for seafood processing positions, 
and failure to provide such evidence will justify a compliance 
review of the sponsor.
    Young Leaders Initiative.--Funding for the Young Leaders 
Initiative shall be made available on a cost-matching basis, 
and the Committee expects that additional funds for this 
program will be raised from private sources. The Secretary of 
State is directed to consult with the Committee on a 
sustainable funding mechanism for these programs.

certified as meeting program requirements, and the amount of 
unobligated funds available to pay such claims.
    The Committee is informed by the Department of State that 
outstanding eligible claims for the extraordinary protective 
services provided to foreign missions and officials from 
qualifying jurisdictions will exceed $72,961,000 in fiscal year 
2016. Section 7034(i) of the act authorizes the Secretary to 
transfer up to $50,000,000 in expired unobligated balances from 
the D&CP; heading to this account to be used for such certified 
eligible claims.

    Additional Transfer Authority.--Section 7004(h) of the act 
provides the Secretary of State with the necessary flexibility 
to transfer funds between the ESCM and D&CP; headings in titles

situations and requirements at diplomatic facilities abroad. 
This authority is in addition to any transfer authority 
otherwise made available under any provision of law.
    American Centers.--The Committee supports the renovation 
and construction of American Centers and Information Resource 
Centers [IRCs] through a strategy that balances the need for 
publicly accessible facilities, reasonable and sustainable 
costs, and compliance with the Secure Embassy Construction and 
Counterterrorism Act of 1999 (title VI of Public Law 106-113), 
and encourages continued coordination by the offices of 
Overseas Building Operations [OBO], Diplomatic Security, and 
Public Diplomacy to implement the strategy. The Committee also 
continues to support funding for construction and renovation 
costs for American Centers and IRCs within the OBO budget, as 
appropriate, to meet security and safety requirements, and 
expects the administration to include adequate funds within the 
OBO budget for such purposes in the fiscal year 2016 spend plan

to the Department under the program during the past fiscal 
year.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to include in 
notifications to the Committee of diplomatic facility 
construction projects that include funding for a major art

U.S. diplomatic facilities and host government ministries; the 
justification of need for acquiring the property and

project delineated by site acquisition, project development, 
design/construction, and any other relevant costs; any unique 
requirements of the project which may drive up the cost, such 
as consular workload, legal environment, physical and/or 
security requirements, and seismic capabilities; any religious, 
cultural, or political factors which may affect the cost, 
location, or construction timeline; the current and projected 
number of desks, agency presence, and the projected number of 
U.S. direct hire staff, LES, and Third Country Nationals; the 
current and projected number of beds, if applicable; the most 
recent rightsizing analysis; and a justification for exceeding

central government of a country if the Secretary, following 
consultation with the appropriate congressional committees,

wellbeing of the Great Lakes. The Committee recommends that the 
Department of State request an International Joint Commission 
review of the proposal and urge the Government of Canada to 
postpone its final decision until the review of the long-term 
impacts of locating a nuclear repository at the proposed site 
is complete and fully evaluated by both the Governments of the 
United States and Canada.

    Program Changes and Proposed Reductions.--The Committee 
recommends $6,300,000 in title VIII for Middle East 
Broadcasting Networks and VOA programs to counter the narrative 
of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, and $661,000 to 
upgrade technical capabilities. The Committee does not support 
BBG's proposal to increase the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty 
[RFE/RL] Russian program given concerns with the proposed use 
of such funds for unjustified administrative purposes and the 
lack of integration with VOA Russian Service capacity.
    The Committee does not support the following BBG proposed 
reductions: broadcast transmissions for VOA and RFA Khmer, RFA 
Lao, RFE/RL North Caucasus, RFE/RL Russian, RFE/RL Afghan, and 
VOA Central Africa services; and program reductions to RFE/RL 
Macedonian and North Caucasus Services, and VOA Indonesian, 
Central Africa, and Laos Services.
    Latin America Division Merger.--The Committee does not 
support, and the act does not include, authority requested for 
the merger of the Office of Cuba Broadcasting [OCB] and the VOA 
Latin American Division. Therefore, the Committee does not 
include $3,181,000 contained in the President's budget request 
under OCB for transfer of VOA Spanish employees to OCB as part 
of the merger, and instead recommends that amount be retained 
by VOA. The Committee recommends $27,130,000 for OCB, an amount 
equal to the request (adjusted for the retention of such funds 
by VOA).
    North Korea.--The Committee recommends the President's 
budget request for international broadcasting to North Korea.
    Programs Countering Russian Media.--The Committee supports 
broadcasting to counter Russian misinformation in Ukraine, the 
Balkans, and other former Soviet countries, and includes 
sufficient funding to continue broadcasts at not less than 
fiscal year 2015 levels.
    The Committee is concerned that the fiscal year 2015 
expansion of RFE/RL Russian language programs included a 
significant expansion of administrative and support personnel 
at RFE/RL and did not adequately integrate the capacity of VOA 
Russian Service. The Committee directs the BBG Chairman to 
include in the fiscal year 2016 operating plan a revised plan 
for enhancing Russian language programs that: fully utilizes 
and integrates the capacity of RFE/RL and VOA Russian language 
services; reflects a more constrained and justifiable expansion 
of RFE/RL's administrative and support infrastructure; and 
includes annual operating costs that are sustainable.
    Report on Programs Attributable to the Asia Rebalancing 
Initiative.--The Committee directs the BBG to submit to the 
Committee a report, concurrent with the operating plan, 
detailing the fiscal year 2016 BBG programs that are 
attributable to the Asia Rebalancing Initiative, including the 
costs of such programs.

from the Center for Middle Eastern-Western Dialogue Trust Fund.
    The Committee encourages the Center for Middle Eastern-
Western Dialogue Trust Fund to continue efforts to leverage 
existing funds to secure contributions from private and other 
public sources, to the maximum extent practicable. The 
Committee supports the Department of State's oversight of the 
annual grant to the Center, but directs that the Department not

Budget estimate, 2016...................................     103,450,000
Committee recommendation................................     170,000,000

    The Committee recommends $170,000,000 for the National 
Endowment for Democracy, of which $135,000,000 is for 
traditional programs; $20,000,000 is for programs and 
activities to address medium- and long-term threats to the 
promotion of democracy abroad; and $15,000,000 is for programs 
and activities to respond to immediate, unanticipated 
challenges or opportunities abroad, subject to prior 
consultation with the Committee. Of the funds made available 
for traditional programs, $100,000,000 should be allocated in 
the traditional and customary manner, including for the core 
institutes, and $35,000,000 should be for democracy programs. 
The core institutes shall be eligible for additional funding to 
address medium and long-term threats to the promotion of 
democracy abroad, including for the strengthening of political 
parties and civil society, and to respond to unanticipated 
challenges.
    The Committee notes that the increase for the NED above the 
President's budget request is offset by an equivalent decrease 
in the request for democracy programs.
    The Committee regrets the $31,550,000 reduction to the NED 
below the fiscal year 2015 enacted level proposed in the 
President's budget request. The Committee recognizes the 
challenges of democratization, including efforts by 
authoritarian governments and non-state actors to undermine the 
advancement of democracy abroad, and the spread of instability 
and extremist ideology across parts of Africa and the Middle 
East. The Committee recognizes that the NED is a more 
appropriate and effective means of conducting democracy 
programs in closed and transitioning societies than either 
USAID or the Department of State, as evidenced by the 
complications arising from programs supported by those agencies 
in Egypt and Cuba.
    The Committee again expects the NED, DRL, and USAID to 
regularly consult with one another regarding their democracy 
and human rights activities. However, funds appropriated under 
this heading shall not be subject to prior approval by the 
Department of State or USAID, or to administrative or 
managerial surcharges, and the NED should not be precluded from 
competitively bidding on other grant solicitations.
    The President of NED shall submit a report on the uses of 
funds under this heading on a regional and country basis not 
later than 45 days after enactment of the act.

                  Funds Appropriated to the President

                           OPERATING EXPENSES

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2015....................................  $1,216,300,000
    Enduring operations.................................   1,090,836,000
    Overseas contingency operations.....................     125,464,000

    Overseas contingency operations.....................      65,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,282,876,000
    Enduring operations.................................   1,143,614,000
    Overseas contingency operations.....................     139,262,000

    The Committee recommends $1,143,614,000 for Operating 
Expenses. An additional $139,262,000 in title VIII under this 
heading is designated for OCO.
    The Committee does not include funding for USAID operations 
in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq under this heading in this 
title. Funding for such purposes is included in title VIII of 
the act. While the Committee recommendation supports filling, 
as necessary, existing positions that become vacant due to 
attrition, the Committee does not recommend additional funding 
to establish new positions. The Committee will consider 
reprogramming proposals for any proposed new positions, 
particularly if funds for such purpose are derived from the 
elimination of redundancies or inefficiencies in operations.
    The Committee supports funding for the Office of Security 
at the amount proposed in the President's budget request, and 
recommends USAID staff training to be supported at not less 
than the fiscal year 2015 level.
    The Committee directs the USAID Administrator to consult 
with the Committee prior to the submission of the fiscal year 
2016 operating plan, and expects such plan to include updated 
estimates for other sources of funds, including recoveries and 
carryover balances. Funding from such sources reported in 
previous operating plans have been higher than the estimates 
included in the CBJ. The Committee supports USAID's continued 
efforts to improve management of obligated funds which have 
increased USAID's available resources.
    Global Development Lab.--The Committee supports the goal of 
the Global Development Lab to collaborate with U.S. 
entrepreneurs, corporations, NGOs, universities, and science 
and research institutions to find innovative solutions to some 
of the world's development challenges faster, cheaper, and more 
sustainably. The Committee directs the USAID Administrator to 
submit a report to the Committee not later than April 1, 2016, 
detailing the Lab's activities and local partners since April 
1, 2015.
    Local Sustainable Development Officers.--Section 7057(j) of 
division J of Public Law 113-235 directs the USAID 
Administrator to submit to the Committee a plan, including a 
timeline, resources required by fiscal year, and incentives for 
FSOs to work more directly and collaboratively with local 
partners to design and implement small-scale, sustainable 
programs, projects, and activities. The Committee is aware that 
USAID is working on such plan, but has not yet submitted such 
report to the Committee.
    The USAID Administrator is directed to submit to the 
Committee the plan, or a report on the status of the plan, not 
later than 30 days after enactment of the act. In addition to 
the items listed in section 7057(j), the Administrator is 
directed to include a prioritization of the foreign languages 
for which USAID has the greatest need, an analysis of the 
benefits of extending the number of FSO tours of duty to 3 
years, and any legislative changes that may be necessary to 
provide FSOs with the incentives and promotion opportunities to 
implement the work objectives described in section 7057(j).
    Mission Closings.--The Committee requests that the USAID 
Administrator consult with the appropriate congressional 
committees when the closure of a USAID Mission abroad has been 
discussed with a foreign government.
    Overseas Representation and Residence Expenses.--The 
Committee expects USAID to utilize, to the maximum extent 
possible, U.S.-owned foreign currencies for overseas 
representation and official residence expenses.
    Procurement Reform.--The Committee notes that while USAID's 
procurement reform initiative is intended to help build 
capacity of local NGOs and governments and streamline the 
agency's procurement procedures to reach a wider range of 
smaller local partners and increase competition, USAID remains 
heavily reliant on large U.S.-based contractors and grantees. 
Local subcontractors and sub-grantees often provide the labor 
but are minimally involved in the choice of projects or design. 
The Committee urges the USAID Administrator to continue to 
pursue procurement reform, including by providing incentives 
for USAID personnel to become more directly involved with local 
partners at all stages of the sustainable development process.
    U.S. Small Business.--The Committee directs the USAID 
Administrator to set regional and worldwide goals for overseas 
contracts and subcontracts with U.S. small businesses, and to 
require small business indicators and annual targets be 
included in each overseas USAID mission annual plan. Not later 
than 90 days after enactment of the act, the USAID 
Administrator shall submit a report to the Committee on the 
dollar amount and percentage of awards to large prime 
contractors and small business contractors for fiscal year 2015 
awards made under USAID indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity 
contracts.

      Total, Global Health Programs..................          8,468,000
------------------------------------------------------------------------

                       MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH

    The Committee recommends $715,000,000 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.
    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. The additional funds above the 
President's budget request are to support a multi-donor effort 
to eliminate the disease.
    Vaccines and Immunizations.--The Committee recommends 
$200,000,000 for GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance and directs the 
USAID Administrator to provide details on the planned uses of 
funds prior to making the contribution.
    Vulnerable Children.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $22,000,000 for the Displaced Children and Orphans Fund to 
support programs and activities that address the needs of 
vulnerable children, of which $10,000,000 shall be used to 
implement the U.S. Government Action Plan on Children in 
Adversity [the Action Plan] in at least six pilot countries 
which embrace an integrated, cross-sectoral approach to 
implement the three objectives of the Action Plan, and which 
shall be administered under the direction of the Special 
Advisor established in the Assistance for Orphans and Other 
Vulnerable Children in Developing Countries Act of 2005 (Public 
Law 109-95).
    The Committee is concerned that it has been 2 years since 
the launch of the Action Plan, yet not all of the six priority 
countries have been identified. The Committee urges the 
Secretary of State and the USAID Administrator to designate the 
six countries within 90 days of enactment of the act, and 
provide the Committee with an implementation plan for each 
country within 180 days of enactment. The Special Advisor is 
directed to consult with the Committee prior to the obligation 
of such funds.
    The Committee recommends not less than $2,500,000 for 
assistance for blind children, in addition to funds otherwise 
made available by the act for such purposes, which USAID should 
administer in a manner that delivers the maximum amount of 
funds to beneficiaries.
    The Committee recommends support for programs that address 
autism spectrum disorders, including treatment and the training 
of healthcare workers to better diagnose such disorders.

                               NUTRITION

    The Committee recommends $115,000,000 for nutrition 
programs under this heading, to be made available through 
USAID.
    The Committee notes the development of USAID's ``Multi-
Sectoral Nutrition Strategy: 2015-2025'', particularly its 
guiding principles, including: linkages to other U.S. 
Government policies, strategies, and initiatives; reliance on 
country-led policies; focus on gender equality and female 
empowerment; evidence-based programming; coordinated multi-
sectoral approaches; and engagement with the private sector. 
The Committee requests the USAID Administrator, in consultation 
with the heads of other relevant agencies, to provide 
additional details regarding the Strategy, including countries 
receiving nutrition assistance from sources other than USAID, 
and the estimated costs for implementing the Strategy in 
subsequent fiscal years for USAID and the Department of State.
    The Committee also notes the development of a U.S. 
Government Global Nutrition Coordination Plan to maximize the 
impact of U.S. investments in nutrition, particularly its 
expected result of accelerated progress toward relevant World 
Health Assembly targets and other U.S. global commitments. The 
Committee directs the USAID Administrator, in consultation with 
the heads of other relevant agencies, to provide the Committee 
additional details regarding the Plan, including: a description 
of the Plan's status; accountability measures included in the 
Plan; and areas where improved cross-agency coordination is 
needed to address malnutrition challenges that adversely affect 
human health and productivity.
    The Committee supports the inclusion of nutrition 
activities in water, sanitation and hygiene, global health, and 
humanitarian programs.
    The Committee recommends $3,500,000, in addition to funds 
otherwise made available by the act, 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 [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 $612,600,000 in the act 
for family planning and reproductive health programs, including 
$538,000,000 under this heading, $39,600,000 under the ESF 
heading, and $35,000,000 for the United Nations Population 
Fund.

                                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. 
Given a miscalculation in the formula used to determine the 
amount of the Global Fund contribution, the Committee includes 
a provision allowing the contribution to exceed the cap for 
fiscal years 2015 and 2016, 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 2017 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 expand pediatric 
treatment programs to meet the targets included in the United 
States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria 
Act of 2003, as amended (Public Law 108-25), and recommends 
that OGAC include expanded testing of high-risk pediatric 
populations for early diagnosis and initiation of anti-
retroviral therapy for infants and children as a priority in 
country operating plans.
    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 directs that 
of this amount, up to $20,000,000 be made available for 
programs designed to identify such children who are living 
outside family care and to find safe, permanent and nurturing 
families. 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. Such programs 
should follow the guidelines of the U.S. Government Action Plan 
for Children in Adversity. The Committee directs OGAC to 
consult with the appropriate congressional committees prior to 
obligating funds for such programs.
    UNAIDS.--The Committee recommends $45,000,000 for a U.S. 
contribution to UNAIDS.
    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

    Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia.--The Committee supports 
increased U.S. leadership and engagement in international 
efforts to address Alzheimer's disease and related dementia, 
given the rising prevalence and corresponding economic impact 
of this disease globally. The Committee directs the Department 
of State, in coordination with USAID, to work with the 
Department of Health and Human Services to develop a 
comprehensive approach to enhance U.S. participation in 
international meetings and initiatives focused on preventing 
and treating Alzheimer's and dementia.
    Health Systems Preparedness.--The Committee expects the 
USAID Administrator and the Secretary of State, in consultation 
with the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and the 
Global AIDS Coordinator, to continue to support disaster 
preparedness training for frontline health workers in disaster-
prone regions to strengthen national and community resilience. 
The Committee recommends assistance in the act and funds 
appropriated for Ebola virus disease response in prior acts 
making appropriations for the Department of State, foreign 
operations, and related programs for Guinea, Liberia, Sierra 
Leone, and other fragile states to build resilient health 
workforces and systems capable of reaching zero cases of Ebola, 
restoring access to basic services and responding to future 
health threats.
    Malaria.--The Committee recommends $669,500,000 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 supports the work of Federal agencies and 
higher education institutions in addressing the health, 
economic, and security impacts of malaria and other parasitic 
diseases, and in seeking improvements in Food and Drug 
Administration-approved drugs for malaria prevention.
    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 on 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.
    Pandemic Influenza and Other Emerging Threats.--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 
under title III may be made available to combat an 
international infectious disease outbreak that is sustained, 
severe, and is spreading internationally.
    Research and Development.--The Committee supports 
investments in new global health technologies to address 
ongoing global health challenges.
    Tuberculosis.--The Committee recommends $236,000,000 for 
programs to combat tuberculosis and directs USAID to prioritize 
the use of U.S.-based entities for this purpose, consistent 
with the FAA.

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

    The Committee directs that relevant USAID bureaus and 
offices that support cross-cutting development programs 
coordinate such programs on a regular basis.
    Section 7083 of the act is a new general provision 
requiring that any country assistance strategy developed after 
the date of enactment of the act include a transition plan, and 
that the Secretary of State, in consultation with the USAID 
Administrator and appropriate congressional committees, select 
two countries to gradually decrease assistance over a 5 year 
period, excluding democracy programs and disaster assistance. 
The provision establishes specific criteria for the selection 
of such countries.

               FOOD SECURITY AND AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommends $1,000,600,000 for food security 
and agricultural development programs from title III of the 
act. 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 agricultural and 
technical assistance, and intends that programs are prioritized 
for women farmers, small-holder farmers, and other vulnerable 
populations.
    Feed the Future Collaborative Research Innovation Lab.--The 
Committee recommends not less than $32,000,000 for the FtF 
Collaborative Research Innovation Lab, formerly known as the 
Collaborative Research Support Program, 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's endowment, 
which seeks to ensure the viability of agriculture worldwide by 
conserving and making available collections of crop diversity. 
The Committee notes that authorization for the Trust was 
extended through 2018 and that its mission has expanded 
significantly to include the management of all major seed 
banks.
    Global Food Security and Legal Solutions Report.--The 
Committee notes that the lack of land rights and tenure, 
limited access to capital and markets, inadequate natural 
resource management capacity, and inconsistent legal standards 
on food quality and safety are significant obstacles to food 
security in many developing countries. Not later than 180 days 
after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State, in 
consultation with the USAID Administrator, shall submit to the 
Committee a report on ongoing efforts by the Department of 
State and USAID to support reform in such countries to address 
these challenges. The report should also include an assessment 
of the feasibility and cost of providing a competitive grant 
opportunity through the Office of Global Food Security to 
establish a ``Center for Global Food Security and Legal 
Solutions'' to support research, education, and an 
interdisciplinary approach to global food security.
    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 $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.
    Microenterprise and Microfinance Development Programs.--The 
Committee recommends $265,000,000 in the act for microfinance 
and microenterprise development programs. USAID is directed to 
consult with the Committee and other interested stakeholders on 
ways to maximize the use of microenterprise and microfinance 
assistance to benefit the poorest people. The Committee is 
concerned with the lack of reliable poverty measurement tools 
to demonstrate that USAID has met the requirement of targeting 
half of microfinance and microenterprise funds to those living 
on less than $1.25 a day. The Committee encourages USAID to 
prioritize the use of reliable metrics for measuring poverty.
    Public-Private Partnerships.--The Committee recognizes the 
contributions of public-private partnerships in furthering 
national interests abroad, including Internet-related 
governance and training, emergency communications, and 
cybersecurity. The Committee encourages 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 USAID and the Department of 
State to coordinate the prioritization of trade capacity 
programs with the International Labor Affairs Bureau, 
Department of Labor, and the Office of the United States Trade 
Representative.

                               EDUCATION

    Basic Education.--According to USAID estimates, as of March 
31, 2015, the unexpended balances for funds appropriated for 
basic education programs from fiscal years 2006 through 2014 
total $1,586,542,088. Unobligated balances from fiscal years 
2014 and 2015 total $1,100,043,793 (based on an estimate of 
$800,000,000 for basic education programs in fiscal year 2015). 
When combined, the basic education pipeline totals 
$2,686,585,881.
    While supportive of basic education programs, the Committee 
notes the unintended consequence of this pipeline includes 
spending in countries that do not request basic education 
assistance, unjustified increases in such assistance in 
countries with ongoing basic education programs, and 
insufficient funding for other priorities, including democracy 
and economic development programs.
    Section 7060(a) of the act limits funding for basic 
education at the levels contained in the President's budget 
request, and only to support the objectives of a Country 
Development Cooperation Strategy or similar strategy. 
Flexibility is provided to move funds between countries listed 
in the justification materials, but the overall funding level 
shall not exceed that of the request.
    Global Partnership for Education.--The Committee recommends 
up to $70,000,000 for the Global Partnership for Education 
[GPE], and directs the USAID Administrator to consult with the 
Committee on GPE's efforts to improve monitoring and 
evaluation, and on the effectiveness and sustainability of 
programs.
    Higher Education.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$225,000,000 in the act for higher education programs, of which 
not less than $35,000,000 is to support new partnerships 
between U.S. universities and universities in developing 
countries focused on technology 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 
opportunities for higher education institutions on its Web 
site. Partners should be selected through a competitive 
process.
    American Schools and Hospitals Abroad Program.--The 
Committee recommends $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.

                          ENVIRONMENT PROGRAMS

    The Committee recommends not less than $937,282,000 in the 
act for bilateral and multilateral environment programs.
    Funds for environment programs are allocated according to 
the following table and are subject to the provisions of 
section 7019 of the act:

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

    Adaptation and Mitigation.--The Committee recommends 
assistance through the Department of State and USAID to help 
developing countries adapt to decreases in agricultural 
productivity, water scarcity, and rising temperatures and sea 
levels.
    Biodiversity.--The Committee recommends $39,400,000 for the 
Central Africa Regional Program for the Environment, of which 
up to $21,900,000 is for USAID programs and not less than 
$17,500,000 is to be apportioned directly to the United States 
Fish and Wildlife Service [USFWS].
    As in past fiscal years, the Committee recommends 
$1,000,000 to be apportioned directly to the Department of the 
Interior for continued support for biodiversity and 
archaeological conservation in Guatemala's Mayan Biosphere 
Reserve, to include governance and law enforcement.
    The Committee again notes the technical expertise of the 
USFWS and the U.S. Forest Service [USFS] and directs that not 
less than $5,000,000 be apportioned directly to the USFWS for 
international conservation programs including the Multinational 
Species Conservation Funds, and not less than $5,000,000 be 
apportioned directly to the USFS for programs to protect 
wildlife, biodiversity, and forests in Brazil, Lebanon, Nepal, 
Ukraine, and elsewhere in addition to funds otherwise made 
available by the act for USFS through USAID missions.
    Endangered Species.--The Committee supports continued 
funding for programs to assist developing countries protect 
species that are endangered due to habitat destruction and 
wildlife poaching and trafficking, including in Central Africa, 
Indonesia, South Sudan, and Niger.
    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 
to electricity, and helping to address climate change.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of the Treasury, when 
evaluating a proposal by an IFI to finance construction of a 
large dam, to apply the Department of the Treasury's usual 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 IFI may vote to support 
such a project only if the Secretary, after consulting with the 
Department of State, USAID, and other technical personnel, as 
appropriate, determines that the IFI is taking the necessary 
steps to meet the following safeguards, which the Secretary 
shall encourage the IFI to adopt in relevant strategy and 
policy reviews: (1) projects are selected based on resource and 
river basin management plans that include full stakeholder 
participation. These processes include a thorough, objective 
assessment of social and environmental impacts (including 
cumulative and life cycle gas emissions), and economic risks 
and returns; (2) based on the comprehensive impact assessment 
described above, projects will safeguard river basin 
ecosystems, including by maintaining sufficient operational 
flows to protect existing ecosystems from negative impacts 
while protecting critical natural habitats; (3) demonstrable 
public acceptance of projects, planned mitigation, and benefits 
are achieved through transparent, good faith engagement with 
full participation of affected people in the catchment, 
reservoir, and downstream areas. In addition, in recognition of 
communal ownership and usage rights of lands, territories, 
cultural and natural resources, decisions affecting indigenous 
people require meaningful informed participation during all 
phases of planning, implementation, and monitoring and good 
faith negotiations with affected indigenous people communities, 
including their representative bodies and organizations. 
Affected people have access to grievance mechanisms at the 
project and IFI level or through the borrowing country 
government; (4) the project has been developed transparently, 
with timely public access to key documents including 
environmental and social impact assessments and management 
plans, feasibility studies, economic and risk analyses, and 
revenue management plans, with appropriate exceptions for 
proprietary information; (5) the country has in place sound dam 
management practices, or, where necessary, commits to 
appropriate and timely capacity building. Outstanding 
operational problems with existing dams in the country in the 
same river basin are being addressed before investments in new 
dams; and (6) the project includes environmental and social 
mitigation measures to be funded and implemented throughout the 
life of the project based on a monitoring and mitigation plan. 
Progress on these mitigation measures is regularly monitored 
and publicly reported.
    Green Climate Fund.--Funds made available by the act and 
prior acts making appropriations for the Department of State, 
foreign operations, and related programs may be made available 
for the Green Climate Fund.
    Mekong River Basin.--The Committee is aware that the PRC 
intends to build additional dams along the Upper Mekong River 
that may have serious, adverse impacts on the people, economy, 
and environment in countries along the Lower Mekong River. 
Other countries intend to build dams on the Lower Mekong and on 
the river's tributaries. The Committee recommends support for 
the Mekong River Commission to prevent or mitigate the adverse 
impacts of such actions.
    Migratory Birds.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$500,000 to protect the habitat of migratory birds along the 
Atlantic flyway, for: shorebird habitat protection and 
expansion in Brazil and the Guianas; technical assistance to 
managers of conservation and protected areas in Brazil and 
Suriname; and to support the establishment of seasons and 
sustainable limits for shorebird sport and subsistence hunting 
and trapping in Barbados and the Guianas. The funds are to be 
apportioned directly to the USFWS.
    Report.--The Secretary of State is directed to submit a 
report to the appropriate congressional committees not later 
than 90 days after enactment of the act determining whether any 
action, agreement, treaty, or any other instrument arising as a 
consequence of the Conference of Parties held in 2015 under the 
United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change for which 
a commitment of the U.S. has been made by the administration is 
legally binding absent the advice and consent of the Senate. 
The report shall include a detailed justification for such 
determination.
    Toxic Chemicals and Waste Recycling.--Funds for small 
grants to address the impact of toxic chemicals and to recycle 
waste that threatens human health and the environment are to be 
awarded on an open and competitive basis, following 
consultation with the Committee.

                            GENDER EQUALITY

    The Committee provides a total of $1,714,680,000 in the act 
for gender programs, to promote women's political leadership, 
implement a multiyear strategy to respond to gender-based 
violence, and support implementation of the U.S. National 
Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security.
    Political Participation.--The Committee directs that funds 
appropriated under this, the ESF, DF, CCF, AEECA, and INCLE 
headings be made available for programs to increase women's 
participation in the political process, including political 
parties, elections, and leadership positions in local and 
national governments. Funds should be awarded on an open and 
competitive basis and in accordance with section 7059(b) of the 
act.
    Reports.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State, in 
coordination with the USAID Administrator, to submit a report 
to the Committee not later than 45 days after enactment of the 
act describing the amounts and uses of fiscal year 2016 funds 
to be allocated for programs to promote gender equality, 
disaggregated by country.
    The Committee directs that not later than 90 days after the 
enactment of the act, the Ambassador-at-Large for Global 
Women's Issues and the Senior Coordinator for Gender Equality 
and Women's Empowerment shall jointly submit a report to the 
Committee on the allocation of funds for gender-related 
programs and activities for the previous fiscal year, and to 
make such report publicly available.
    Not later than 180 days after the enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in coordination with the USAID 
Administrator, shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees detailing the findings of the 
government-wide review of the U.S. National Action Plan on 
Women, Peace, and Security.

                            GLOBAL PROGRAMS

    Anti-Slavery.--Section 7060(g)(2) of the act provides 
$25,000,000 for a new initiative to end modern slavery, to be 
made available on an open and competitive basis.
    In addition, the Committee recommends not less than 
$5,000,000 for social, educational, and vocational programs for 
the reintegration of former slaves into society in Mauritania 
and neighboring countries in West Africa, to be implemented by 
local organizations.
    Child Marriage.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$10,000,000 for programs that reduce the incidence of child 
marriage consistent with section 1207 of the Violence Against 
Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (Public Law 113-4), and 
directs the Secretary of State to consult with the Committee 
prior to the obligation of funds.
    Children in Disaster and Conflict.--The Committee 
recognizes the need for enhanced protection of children 
separated from their families as a result of man-made or 
natural disasters and encourages the Office of Foreign Disaster 
Assistance, USAID, and the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and 
Migration, Department of State, to support identification, 
tracing, and reunification programs for children separated from 
families, and the development of national systems for 
identifying, enumerating, and documenting children outside of 
family care, including approaches that can be used rapidly in 
emergencies to determine the number and location of separated 
and unaccompanied children.
    Clean Cookstoves.--The Committee is aware 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 funding for cookstoves that sustainably reduce fuel 
consumption and exposure to harmful smoke.
    Disability Programs.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $7,000,000 for grants to address the needs and protect and 
promote the rights of persons with disabilities in developing 
countries, in addition to other funds made available for such 
purposes in the act.
    Faith-Based Organizations.--The Committee notes 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, to improve the delivery of 
assistance in developing countries under this heading and the 
GHP, DA, and ESF headings.
    Partner Vetting.--The Committee supports a partner vetting 
system [PVS] that safeguards against the inadvertent 
disbursement of funds by the Department of State or USAID to a 
terrorist or terrorist organization, while preserving important 
and sensitive relationships with grantees and contractors. 
USAID and the Department of State should refrain from 
implementing similar vetting systems in countries outside the 
designated PVS pilot program until the report evaluating the 
pilot is complete and the appropriate congressional committees 
have reviewed the report. USAID and the Department of State 
shall make a direct vetting option available. All individuals 
and organizations being vetted should be provided with full 
disclosure of how information will be stored and used by the 
U.S. Government, including how information regarding a positive 
match will be handled and how to appeal such a match. USAID and 
the Department of State shall develop procedures for waiving 
vetting requirements to prevent delay in responding to 
humanitarian crises in failing or failed countries. The 
Committee expects that other Federal agencies conducting 
foreign assistance programs, including security sector reform, 
will utilize vetting procedures similar to those devised by 
USAID and the Department of State, including in Afghanistan.
    Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund.--The Committee recommends 
$13,500,000 for the Leahy War Victims Fund, administered by 
USAID, which assists persons who are severely disabled as a 
result of armed conflict.
    Trafficking in Persons.--The Committee recommends a total 
of $52,500,000 in the act for TIP programs of which, not less 
than the following amounts should be made available: $500,000 
under the Global Health Programs [GHP] heading; $12,000,000 
under the DA heading; $15,000,000 under the ESF heading; and 
$25,000,000 under the INCLE heading.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State to make 
publicly available an appropriate human trafficking hotline 
telephone number and Web site information in public waiting 
areas in all U.S. embassies and consulates in a timely manner.
    The Committee directs the Department of State to implement 
a zero-tolerance policy regarding Foreign Service personnel who 
engage in the solicitation of prostitution.
    The Committee directs the USAID Administrator to report to 
the Committee not later than 90 days after enactment of the act 
on obligations and expenditures of all USAID funds to combat 
human trafficking and forced labor in fiscal year 2015. The 
report shall indicate funding amounts by program, project, and 
activity and describe USAID's management structure for 
programming funds for these purposes. The Committee urges the 
Secretary of State to include in future budget requests 
detailed information on all anti-trafficking and anti-slavery 
programs and expenditures.
    Victims of Torture.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$11,750,000 under this heading for programs and activities that 
address the needs of victims of torture and trauma resulting 
from violent conflict, and support for centers for victims of 
torture that provide services consistent with the goals of the 
Torture Victims Relief Reauthorization Act of 1999 (Public Law 
106-87). An additional $6,550,000 is provided for the U.N. 
Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture under the IOP heading.
    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, as amended (Public Law 109-121), of 
which not less than $145,000,000 is for programs and activities 
in sub-Saharan Africa. The Committee intends these funds to be 
used for programs to provide safe drinking water and sanitation 
for rural and urban communities where water scarcity or 
contamination poses serious risks to human health, with an 
emphasis on drought prone regions of Africa. These funds are in 
addition to other funds in the act to protect and sustainably 
manage water resources. The Committee recognizes that the lack 
of safe and accessible latrines in many developing countries 
may contribute to sexual and other assaults against women and 
girls, particularly at night. The act provides not less than 
$14,000,000 to implement a multi-year plan to address this 
vulnerability in Africa and Asia, and the USAID Administrator 
is directed to consult with the Committee prior to the 
obligation of funds for such purpose.
    Wheelchairs.--The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for 
wheelchair programs in developing countries, to be allocated 
through an open and competitive process, to provide quality, 
low-cost wheelchairs that can be produced and maintained 
locally using appropriate technologies.

                               COUNTRIES

    Bangladesh.--The Committee recommends $3,000,000 for 
programs supported by USAID to continue to improve labor 
conditions by strengthening the capacity and sustainability of 
independent workers' organizations in Bangladesh, including in 
the ready-made garment, shrimp, and fish exports sectors. The 
Committee directs USAID to consult with the Departments of 
State and Labor, and the United States Trade Representative 
prior to the obligation of funds for such purposes, which 
should be a multi-year effort.
    Paraguay.--Prior to the obligation of funds in the act for 
assistance for Paraguay, the Secretary of State shall submit a 
report to the committee on steps taken by the Government of 
Paraguay to conduct an independent investigation of the June 
15, 2012 forced eviction of farmers in Marina Kue, to prosecute 
and punish those responsible for the killings and injuries of 
the farmers and police officers, and to enable poor farmers in 
the community of Curuguaty to acquire legal rights to land and

    Rwanda and Uganda.--The Committee recommends support for 
local and international NGOs to conduct oversight of the 
traffic in conflict minerals out of Eastern Democratic Republic 
of the Congo [DRC] to Rwanda and Uganda.
    Sierra Leone.--The Committee recommends $500,000 for 
democracy programs in Sierra Leone to strengthen civil society 
and governance.
    Vietnam.--The Committee recommends $7,000,000 for 
assistance for Vietnam under this heading for health/disability 
programs in areas sprayed with Agent Orange or otherwise 
contaminated by dioxin, to address the mobility, psycho-social, 
vocational, and other needs of persons with severe upper and 
lower body mobility impairment and/or cognitive or 
developmental disabilities. In order to minimize administrative 
costs and maximize impact in the field, the Committee intends 
that, to the maximum extent practicable, health/disability 
funds shall be implemented by Vietnamese organizations and 
entities.
    The Committee recommends assistance for Vietnam under this 
heading to help plan, prepare for, and mitigate potential 
flooding and other adverse social and environmental impacts

                                 AFRICA

    Africa Pilot Programs.--Section 7042(c) of the act 
continues a program to empower U.S. Ambassadors in Africa to 
address regional health, development, and economic engagement 
and trade opportunities, and security challenges.
    Democratic Republic of the Congo.--The Committee recommends 
funding in the act for programs to demilitarize the mining 
sector in Eastern DRC, strengthen border security, enhance 
independent monitoring of the development of responsible mining 
and related supply chains, protect the rights of mine laborers, 
build local oversight and regulatory capacity to combat the 
illicit trade in minerals, wildlife, and other contraband, and 
assist victims of sexual violence.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State is directed to submit to the appropriate 
congressional committees a strategy (developed in consultation 
with stakeholders) to support 2016 presidential and legislative 
elections in the DRC, which should include a description of the 
conditions required for credible elections. The Committee 
supports funding for democracy programs in the DRC, including 
programs for the development of more accountable political 
parties and increased participation of women and youth in 
political processes. The Committee recommends the Secretary 
leverage the strategy and such funding with the Government of 
the DRC to help create an environment conducive to credible 
elections, and to facilitate dialogue and consensus among 
stakeholders to achieve this goal.
    Djibouti.--The Committee recognizes the strategic 
importance of Djibouti to U.S. security interests and regional 
stability, but remains concerned with the high incidence of 
poverty and restrictions on political rights and civil 
liberties. The Committee is aware of efforts by USAID to 
support a multi-year social, economic, and democratic 
development strategy to improve the quality of life and expand 
employment opportunities for the people of Djibouti, and 
directs the USAID Administrator to continue these efforts, 
including for democracy and governance programs and support for 
civil society.
    Ethiopia.--Not later than 90 days after enactment of the 
act, the Secretary of State shall submit a report to the 
Committee detailing actions taken by the Government of Ethiopia 
in the previous 12 months to implement effective policies to 
protect judicial independence, freedom of expression, 
association, assembly, and religion; protect the rights of 
political opposition parties, civil society organizations, and 
journalists to operate without interference; provide due 
process of law; hold military and police forces accountable for 
corruption, extortion, and violations of human rights; and 
permit access to human rights and humanitarian organizations to 
the Somali region of Ethiopia.
    Liberia.--The Committee notes that funds made available 
under the ESF heading in title IX of division J of Public Law 
113-235 are available to address economic and stabilization 
requirements resulting from the Ebola virus disease outbreak, 
and expects that such funds will be made available to support 
such activities included in the President's budget request for 
Liberia for fiscal year 2016, as appropriate.
    Power Africa.--The Committee supports the goals of the 
Power Africa initiative to provide electricity to millions of 
people who currently have no access to power, many of whom live 
in rural areas that are off the grid. Section 7060(f) of the 
act provides $76,700,000 for this initiative, subject to the 
regular notification procedures of the Committee.
    Somalia.--The Committee recognizes that peace, stability 
and prosperity in Somalia depend on reconciliation and 
effective governance. The Committee recommends funding for 
programs to promote dialogue and reconciliation between the 
central government and Somali regions, and for programs that 
strengthen the rule of law and government institutions, support 
civil society organizations involved in peace building, and 
support other development priorities, including education and 
employment.
    South Sudan.--The Secretary of State is directed to ensure 
that data collected by the Intergovernmental Authority on 
Development's Monitoring and Verification Mechanism [MVM] 
including archived 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 United States provides the 
majority of international donor assistance for the MVM, and the 
Committee directs the Secretary to leverage assistance from 
other international donors to the maximum extent practicable. 
In addition, with respect to the monitoring and verification 
work of the MVM, the Committee supports efforts to develop and 
implement justice and accountability mechanisms, including the 
documentation of human rights violations, in conjunction with 
civil society and other South Sudanese stakeholders.
    Sudan.--The Committee intends that the clarification of the 
term Southern Kordofan contained in section 7034(r)(6) of the 
act shall apply to subsequent acts making appropriations for 
the Department of State, foreign operations, and related 
programs.
    War Crimes in Africa.--The Committee continues to support 
efforts by the U.S., U.N., African Union [AU], 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(f)(2) of the act 
provides 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.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State, following 
consultation with the Secretary of Defense and the USAID 
Administrator, to submit a strategy to the Committee not later 
than 90 days after enactment of the act, including an 
assessment of challenges to economic development in areas of 
Central Africa impacted by the LRA, to support the recovery of 
such areas in coordination with the AU, the U.N., and other 
donors.

                       EAST ASIA AND THE PACIFIC

    Burma.--Section 7043(b) of the act continues restrictions 
and limitations on assistance for Burma in a manner similar to 
prior fiscal years, but includes a new funding limitation 
linked to the holding of credible national elections in 2015. 
The Committee remains concerned with the plight of the Rohingya 
people in Burma and throughout Southeast Asia, and expects the 
Secretary of State to take vigorous bilateral and multilateral 
actions to protect this persecuted and vulnerable population.
    Cambodia.--Section 7043(c) of the act does not include 
funding for a U.S. contribution to the Extraordinary Chambers 
in the Court of Cambodia.
    North Korea.--Section 7043(d) of the act prohibits funds 
appropriated under this heading for assistance for the 
Government of North Korea.
    Palau.--None of the funds appropriated by the act or prior 
acts making appropriations for the Department of State, foreign 
operations, and related programs, except funds to respond to 
disasters or humanitarian needs, may be made available for the 
Compact of Free Association between the United States and Palau 
unless authorized by Congress.
    People's Republic of China.--Section 7043(e) of the act 
continues restrictions and funding for democracy programs in 
the PRC in a manner similar to the prior fiscal year. The 
report on Hong Kong required by the United States-Hong Kong 
Policy Act of 1992 (Public Law 102-383) is required to be 
submitted for an additional fiscal year.
    Vietnam.--The Committee recommends not less than

marginalized groups in political and economic decisionmaking. 
The Committee provides not less than $150,000,000 for 
assistance for Nepal for post-earthquake relief, recovery, and 
reconstruction under title IX of the act.

                               NEAR EAST

    MEPI Scholarships.--The Committee recommends $12,000,000 to 
continue 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.

                           WESTERN HEMISPHERE

    Colombia.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$133,000,000 apportioned directly to USAID for alternative 
development/institution building and local governance programs 
in Colombia, including $6,500,000 for human rights activities.
    Haiti.--Section 7045(d) of the act requires that prior to 
the obligation of assistance for Haiti, the Secretary of State 
shall certify that the Government of Haiti is taking certain 
actions to strengthen governance and improve monitoring and 
control of security assistance. The Committee remains concerned 
with the pervasive corruption, weakness of the judiciary, and 
slow pace of democratic development in Haiti, which have 
impeded progress in that country since the 2010 earthquake.

                            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 
$5,000,000 for the Caribbean Energy Security Initiative.
    Domestic Resource Mobilization.--The Committee supports 
efforts by USAID to encourage partner countries to increase 
their investments in health, education, and other development 
sectors. The Committee directs the USAID Administrator to 
consult with the Committee on plans for allocating funds for 
this purpose.
    Oceans and International Environmental Scientific 
Affairs.--Funds made available by the act and prior acts making 
appropriations for the Department of State, foreign operations, 
and related programs may be made available for the Green 
Climate Fund. The Department of State is to consult with the 
Committee on the uses of funds made available under this 
heading for programs administered by the Bureau of Oceans and 
International Environmental Scientific Affairs, Department of 
State, prior to obligation of such funds.
    Institutions of Higher Education.--The Committee supports 
continued funding of institutions of higher education in the 
Middle East and South Asia, including through funds made 
available under title VIII of the act.
    International Child Abductions.--The Committee remains 
concerned with the failure of certain governments to comply 
with Federal and State court orders concerning child custody 
and visitation or with the Convention on the Civil Aspects of 
International Child Abduction (done at The Hague on October 25, 
1980).
    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 
obtain contributions from other donors and governments to the 
maximum extent practicable.
    Rule of Law.--The Committee recognizes that the rule of law 
is fundamental to democracy and sustainable development, and 
supports funding to strengthen independent judiciaries, protect 
human rights, combat human trafficking and corruption, and 
increase public accountability and access to justice.

    Azerbaijan.--The Committee is concerned with democracy, 
human rights, and corruption in Azerbaijan, and directs that 
not later than 90 days after enactment of the act the Secretary 
of State submit a report to the Committee detailing efforts by 
the Department of State to seek the release of prisoners of 
conscience in Azerbaijan, including Khadija Ismayilova, Anar 
Mammadli, Leyla and Arif Yunus, Rasul Jafarov, and Initigam 
Aliyev, and the Government of Azerbaijan's response to such 
requests.
    Hungary.--The Committee is concerned with the rise of 
parties and organizations in Hungary that are anti-Semitic, 
anti-Roma, and intolerant of minorities, as well as government 
actions to weaken the independence of the judiciary, harass 
civil society groups, limit the ability of independent media to 
operate, restrict freedom of religion, and revise the history 
of World War II and the Holocaust. The Committee supports 
bilateral and multilateral efforts to strengthen the rule of 
law and democracy in Hungary, including by supporting 
independent media and civil society, and directs the Department 
of State to include journalists, educators and members of 
Hungarian civil society in the International Visitors 
Leadership Program and other exchange programs.
    Ireland.--The Committee recommends $2,500,000 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 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 placed on demining activities in the region and 
recommends continued funding for, and the geographic expansion 
of, such programs.

    The Committee recommends $931,886,000 for Migration and 
Refugee Assistance. An additional $1,251,114,000 in title VIII 
under this heading is designated for OCO, and an additional 
$461,000,000 is included in emergency spending. The Committee 
notes that with carryover balances totaling $415,000,000, the 
total for this account in fiscal year 2016 is equal to the 
prior fiscal year level.
    Section 7081 of the act is a new general provision that 
provides that funds appropriated under the DA and ESF headings 
shall be made available for programs to assist countries that 
have significant refugee populations, that such funds shall be 
used to leverage additional funding from other donors, and that 
the purposes of such funds are to expand and improve host 
government social services and basic infrastructure to 
accommodate the needs of IDPs and refugees and alleviate the 
social and economic strains placed on host communities. In 
order to better address the needs of middle income countries 
impacted by IDP and refugee populations, particularly Jordan 
and Lebanon, the provision requires the Secretary of State to 
submit a report to the Committee recommending ways to expand 
access by middle income countries to international lending and 
programs, including an assessment of the implications for the 
MCC of modifying MCC eligibility requirements.
    Israel.--The Committee recommends $10,000,000 for refugee 
resettlement in Israel, to be awarded through an open and 
competitive process.
    North Korea.--The Committee supports assistance for North 
Korean refugees, including in the PRC. The Committee condemns 
the forced repatriation of North Korean refugees, and supports 
the involvement of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and 
other international humanitarian agencies in protecting the 
rights of such refugees.

Committee recommendation................................     901,000,000

    The Committee recommends $901,000,000 for Millennium 
Challenge Corporation [MCC]. The Committee notes that despite 
support for the MCC's mission, funding constraints within the 
current allocation, which is below the President's budget 
request, limits the ability to appropriate funds at the request 
for this account.
    The Committee directs the Secretary of State, the USAID 
Administrator, and the MCC Chief Executive Officer [CEO] to 
jointly assess and report, for each compact supported with 
funds appropriated by the act, on the extent to which the 
compact is aligned with U.S. strategic interests and with other 
U.S. assistance programs and the sustainability of the MCC's 
investment by the host country government. The MCC CEO shall 
further report to the Committee on progress in strengthening 
and applying the Control of Corruption indicator.

section 7076 of the act.

    Activities of Other Agencies.--The act directs that 
assistance provided by other agencies that is comparable to 
types of assistance that may be provided with funds 
appropriated under this heading, primarily, but not limited to, 
assistance for international narcotics control-related 
activities and the full range of international law enforcement 
activities, should only be undertaken with the concurrence of 
the Secretary of State, and also in accordance with provisions 
of sections 481(b) and 622(c) of the FAA which provides that 
the Secretary of State is responsible for the continuous 
supervision and the general direction of U.S. foreign 
assistance.
    Colombia.--The Committee recommends $103,000,000 for 
Colombia under this heading, including not less than 
$10,000,000 for the human rights unit of the Office of the 
Attorney General to be administered by the Department of State 
and the Department of Justice.
    The Committee notes that the President's budget request 
included $38,350,000 for the aerial eradication program which 
has been terminated by the Government of Colombia. The 
Committee recommends $24,350,000 for the winding down and 
transition of this program to support other counter-narcotics 
and law enforcement activities in Colombia, such as expanded 
interdiction and manual eradication.
    Demand Reduction Program.--The Committee supports the 
President's budget request for the Demand Reduction Program.
    Forensic Assistance.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $4,000,000 for forensic assistance programs to improve 
local capacity to identify and exhume remains of victims of war 
crimes and crimes against humanity, which shall be administered 
by DRL.
    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 
any such funds be targeted toward Joseph Kony, Omar al-Bashir, 
Bashir al-Assad, and other high profile foreign nationals who 
are accused of such crimes.
    International Police Peacekeeping Operations Support 
Program.--The Committee directs that, to the maximum extent 
practicable, funds made available for the International Police 
Peacekeeping Operations Support Program be made available on a 
cost-matching basis from sources other than the U.S. 
Government.
    Philippines.--The Committee recommends up to $3,000,000 to 
improve the technical and forensic capability of the Philippine 
National Police to combat online sexual exploitation of 
children in the Philippines and the capability of the 
Philippines Department of Social Welfare and Development to 
provide rehabilitation and community reintegration for victims 
of such exploitation.
    Rule of Law Programs.--The Committee recognizes the 
leadership of the Department of State in promoting rule of law 
programs globally, and continues to support programs that 
coordinate such activities among U.S. agencies, including the 
Department of Defense. The Committee finds that rule of law 
programs conducted over the past decade, particularly in the 
Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, have created 
uniquely qualified personnel across such agencies, and that 
such personnel should coordinate and share programmatic 
experiences on a regular basis. Personnel will benefit from 
continued programs both to coordinate activities and knowledge 
within government and to learn from policy-oriented experts in 
academia to better understand the root causes of state 
fragility and to develop better tools to build sustainable rule 
of law programs in vulnerable states and regions.
    The Committee notes 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 to continue programs that strengthen and promote 
independent judiciaries worldwide.
    Southeast Asia Maritime Security Law Enforcement 
Initiative.--The Committee recommends not less than $8,000,000 
under this heading for this initiative, which seeks to address 
regional maritime law enforcement challenges such as human, 
narcotics, and wildlife trafficking.
    Trafficking in Persons.--The Committee supports DRL's 
efforts to combat human trafficking and exploitative labor 
practices overseas.
    The Committee recommends up to $5,000,000 under the INCLE 
heading be made available to implement child protection 
compacts pursuant to Public Law 113-4.
    Trafficking in Wildlife.--The Committee recommends 
$25,000,000 under this heading for programs to counter wildlife 
poaching and trafficking.
    The Committee directs the Department of State and USAID, in 
coordination with other relevant Federal agencies, to include 
monitoring and evaluation mechanisms in anti-wildlife 
trafficking programs to ensure that funds are used for the 
intended purposes, and to measure the outcomes of such 
assistance, such as the number and types of prosecutions of 
individuals involved in wildlife trafficking, the trends in 
targeted wildlife population sizes, and the effectiveness of 
demand reduction campaigns.
    Tunisia.--The Committee recommends $7,000,000 for 
assistance for Tunisia under this heading, which is equal to 
the prior fiscal year level. The Committee recommends 
additional funds be made available from prior acts making 
appropriations for the Department of State, foreign operations, 
and related programs through a reprogramming of funds 
(including unobligated balances for assistance for Yemen), 
following consultation with the Committee.

    Bahrain.--No crowd control assistance for Bahrain was 
included in the President's budget request under this heading, 
and none is provided by the act. The Secretary of State shall 
inform the Committee of assistance intended to be provided to 
Bahrain prior to the obligation of funds.
    Not later than 45 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees describing the specific steps taken by 
the Government of Bahrain to implement the recommendations in 
the 2011 Report of the Bahrain Independent Commission of 
Inquiry, including further steps the government should take to 
fully implement the recommendations and an assessment of the 
impact of the findings of the Report for U.S. security in the 
region.
    Burma.--No assistance for Burma was included in the 
President's budget request under this heading, and none is 
provided by the act.
    Crowd Control Items.--Section 7034(b)(2) of the act 
continues restrictions on the provision of crowd control items 
for foreign security forces that use excessive force to repress 
peaceful expression and association in countries undergoing 
democratic transition.
    Guatemala.--No assistance for the Guatemalan army was 
included in the President's budget request under this heading, 
and none is provided by the act.
    Indonesia.--The Committee recognizes the progress by the 
people of Indonesia to strengthen democracy and accountability. 
In order to continue to encourage reforms within the military, 
the Committee directs the Secretary of State to submit the 
report to the Committee required under this heading in Senate 
Report 113-195 in the manner described.
    Mexico.--Prior to the obligation of funds under this 
heading for assistance for Mexico, the Secretary of State shall 
submit to the appropriate congressional committees a report 
detailing steps taken in the preceding 12 months: by the 
Government of Mexico to investigate and prosecute military and 
police personnel for violation of human rights in civilian 
courts, enforce the prohibitions against torture and the use of 
testimony obtained through torture, and search for the victims 
of forced disappearances; and by the Mexican military and 
police to promptly transfer detainees to the custody of 
civilian judicial authorities in accordance with Mexican law 
and to cooperate with such authorities in such cases.
    Morocco.--The Secretary of State shall submit the report to 
the Committee required by section 7041(g) of the Department of 
State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations 
Act, 2012 (division I of Public Law 112-74) in the manner 
described, except the report shall include steps taken by 
interested parties to support a human rights and monitoring 
role for the U.N. Mission in Western Sahara, in cooperation 
with the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights.
    Philippines.--The Committee recognizes the myriad 
challenges facing the armed forces of the Philippines, 
including maritime disputes with the PRC and an insurgency in 
Mindanao.
    Prior to the obligation of funds made available under this 
heading for assistance for the Philippines, the Secretary of 
State shall submit to the Committee a report detailing the 
steps taken by the Government of the Philippines in the 
preceding 12 months to: investigate and prosecute army 
personnel who are credibly alleged to have committed, aided, or 
abetted extra-judicial executions, forced disappearances and 
other violations of human rights; implement a policy of 
promotion for army personnel who have demonstrated a commitment 
to human rights, and a policy of demotion for those personnel 
who commit human rights violations; and prevent security 
personnel and paramilitary groups from committing acts of 
intimidation or violence against civil society, including 
journalists. The Committee remains concerned with the lack of 
accountability for security force personnel who violate human 
rights in the Philippines.
    Security Sector Reform.--The Committee directs that funds 
appropriated by the act for security sector reform 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 USAID, the 
Department of Defense, and the Department of State.
    Thailand.--No assistance for Thailand is provided under 
this heading, as such assistance is prohibited by section 7008 
of the act.
    Tunisia.--The Committee recommends $30,000,000 for 
assistance for Tunisia under this heading, which is equal to 
the prior fiscal year level. The Committee recommends 
additional funds be made available from prior acts making 
appropriations for the Department of State, foreign operations, 
and related programs through a reprogramming of funds, 
following consultation with the Committee.

    Organization of American States.--The Committee is 
concerned that the Organization of American States [OAS] has 
been negatively impacted by inadequate leadership and has taken 
on too many activities without sufficient resources to fund its 
key functions. The Committee notes that the OAS has a new 
Secretary General and recognizes the comparative advantage of 
the OAS in promoting democracy, monitoring electoral processes, 
and protecting fundamental rights. The Committee notes the 
important role of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights 
and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in providing 
access to justice for victims of human rights violations. The 
Committee recommends $2,000,000 for a U.S. voluntary 
contribution to the Commission, of which $500,000 should be 
made available for the Office of the Special Rapporteur for 
Freedom of Expression.
    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.
    The Committee recommends $7,000,000 for a U.S. voluntary 
contribution to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, 
including support for HCHR's offices in Honduras, Colombia, and 
Mexico.
    United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural 
Organization.--The Committee notes that the President's budget 
request did not include a U.S. contribution to UNESCO under 
this heading, which is prohibited by law, and none is provided.

    The Committee recommends $1,566,477,000 for U.S. 
contributions to International Financial Institutions.
    International Monetary Fund.--The Committee includes 
funding for reforms and adjustments to quota shares for the 
International Monetary Fund [IMF] under this title, as 
contained in the President's budget request, instead of title X 
of the act.
    United States Commitments.--To meet U.S. commitments in an 
austere budget environment, the Committee continues funding for 
institutions funded in fiscal year 2015, except for the 
Contribution to the Enterprise for the Americas Multilateral 
Investment Fund (which was not included in the President's 
budget request), and provides funding for contributions to the 
Global Agriculture and Food Security Program and the North 
American Development Bank, which were included in the request. 
However, these contributions are funded at a uniform rate of 50 
percent of the levels proposed by the President, excluding 
funds requested for the Multilateral Debt Relief Initiatives 
and Contribution to the Asian Development Bank.
    World Bank Safeguards.--The Committee expects the World 
Bank to enforce social and economic safeguards to ensure that 
those displaced by Bank-financed projects who lost land and 
livelihoods are compensated. The Committee notes the failure of 
the Bank to adequately implement such safeguard policies, 
particularly in Africa, Central America, and Asia.

                        ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2015....................................    $106,250,000
Budget estimate, 2016...................................     117,700,000
Committee recommendation................................     106,250,000

    The Committee recommends $6,000,000 for the Inspector 
General and $106,250,000 for administrative expenses for the 
Export-Import [Ex-Im] Bank.
    The act does not contain a provision reauthorizing the Ex-
Im Bank. Should Congress reauthorize the Bank in fiscal year 
2015, the Committee anticipates that up to an additional 
$200,000,000 in budget authority may become available. Section 
7084 of the act provides rescissions of non-OCO and non-
emergency funds from prior acts making appropriations for the 
Department of State, foreign operations, and related programs 
under the ESF and INCLE headings. The Committee expects that 
proposed rescissions under the ESF and INCLE headings may be 
adjusted by the Committee if the Ex-Im Bank is reauthorized, 
and additional budget authority becomes available.

Budget estimate, 2016...................................$(1,180,000,000)
Committee recommendation (emergency).................... (1,180,000,000)

    The Committee recommends $295,000,000 for the United States 
Quota, Direct Loan Program of the International Monetary Fund.

    The Committee recognizes that implementation of the 2010 
IMF reform agreement is necessary to prevent a loss of U.S. 
influence in the IMF and to maintain the ability to shape 
international norms and influence global financial systems in 
ways that protect U.S. interests. The Committee notes that the 
administration has requested authorization and appropriations 
to endorse and ratify the 2010 IMF reform package in the 
President's budget requests for fiscal years 2014, 2015, and 
2016.
    The Committee recommends $295,000,000 to increase the U.S. 
quota at the IMF by 40,871,800,000 Special Drawing Rights 
[SDRs], and rescinds $1,180,000,000 from funds appropriated in 
the Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2009 (Public Law 111-32) 
to reduce the U.S. participation in the New Arrangements to 
Borrow [NAB] by an equal amount of SDRs. The Committee notes 
that the increase in SDRs in the U.S. quota to the IMF and the 
simultaneous decrease in SDRs in the U.S. contribution to the 
NAB will not change the overall U.S. commitment to the IMF.
    The act authorizes the decrease in SDRs in the U.S. 
participation in the NAB, the United States to accept an 
amendment to the IMF Articles of Agreement that will change the 
composition of the IMF Executive Board while preserving the 
U.S. seat on the Board, and the increase in SDRs to the U.S. 
quota.
    The Committee notes that rescissions contained in section 
7084 of the act offset Congressional Budget Office and OMB 
scoring differences for this program account totaling 
$233,000,000. Further, the Committee notes that the rescission 
of $1,180,000,000 offsets the $759,000,000 included in the act 
for emergency discretionary funding.
