                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 2810 includes waivers of the following:
           Section 306 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
        which prohibits consideration of legislation within the 
        jurisdiction of the Committee on the Budget unless 
        referred to or reported by the Budget Committee.
           Clause 3(e)(1) of rule XIII (``Ramseyer''), 
        requiring a committee report accompanying a bill 
        amending or repealing statutes to show, by 
        typographical device, parts of statute affected.
           Clause 4(a) of rule XIII, which prohibits 
        consideration of legislation in the House until the 
        third calendar day on which each report of a committee 
        on that measure or matter has been available to 
        Members, Delegates and the Resident Commissioner. While 
        the Committee on Armed Services filed its report on 
        July 6, 2017, the Committee requested authority to file

           Section 303 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
        which prohibits consideration of legislation, providing 
        a change in budget authority for a fiscal year until 
        the budget resolution for that year has been agreed to.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
the amendment in the nature of a substitute to H.R. 23 made in 
order as original text, the Committee is not aware of any 
points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.

SEC. 2__. ESTABLISHMENT AND EXPANSION OF HACKING FOR DEFENSE PROGRAM.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) The MD5 Hacking for Defense Program enables 
        universities nationwide to provide valuable 
        entrepreneurial and innovation education to students, 
        providing formal training for scientists and engineers 
        to pursue careers in business or government 
        organizations.
          (2) The MD5 Hacking for Defense Program is successful 
        in part due to its focus on ensuring that government 
        problems are well-defined and suitable for university 
        courses, ensuring that educators are trained and 
        certified in course methodology and curriculum, and 
        providing an ecosystem of government and corporate 
        mentors to student teams to enhance their education and 
        access to clients familiar with specific problems.
          (3) Hacking for Defense programs provide a unique 
        pathway for veteran students to leverage their military 
        expertise to solve rapidly emerging national security 
        challenges while learning cutting-edge business 
        innovation methodology.
          (4) The MD5 Hacking for Defense Program's success in 
        the early stages of the innovation continuum should be 
        expanded to offer training to universities nationwide, 
        and government personnel and organizations charged with 
        innovation.
  (b) Establishment and Expansion of Hacking for Defense 
Program.--

                  (D) best practices for the conduct of such 
                programs.
          (2) Consultation.--In carrying out paragraph (1), the 
        Secretary of Defense may consult with the heads of such 
        Federal agencies, universities, and public and private 
        entities engaged in the development of advanced 
        technologies as the Secretary determines to be 
        appropriate.
          (3) Eligibility.--The Secretary of Defense shall--
                  (A) develop and maintain eligibility criteria 
                for programs to become recognized as Hacking 
                for Defense education sites; and
                  (B) ensure that any recipient of a grant 
                under the Small Business Technology Transfer

          (1) a definition of the term ``Procurement 
        Administrative Lead Time'' or ``PALT'', to be applied 
        Department of Defense-wide, that describes the amount 
        of time from the date on which a solicitation is issued

SEC. 870A. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING STEEL PRODUCED IN THE UNITED 
                    STATES.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) Frequent surges in unfairly trade steel imports 
        have materially injured the iron ore and steel 
        industries in the United States, putting our national, 
        economic, and energy security at risk.
          (2) High-quality American steel products are vital to 
        the success of the United States military and are used 
        in a variety of applications from aircraft carriers to 
        armor plate for tanks.
          (3) Domestic producers of defense-related steel 
        products are dependent on the overall financial health 
        of the iron ore and steel industries in the United 
        States.
          (4) The loss of a strong domestic iron ore and steel 
        industry would make the United States dangerously 
        dependent upon foreign sources of steel, such as China.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that a 
strong domestic iron ore and steel industry is vital to the 
national security of the United States.

          California or His Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

  At the end of subtitle B of title XII, add the following:

SEC. 12XX. SENSE OF CONGRESS RELATING TO DR. SHAKIL AFRIDI.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) The attacks of September 11, 2001, killed 
        approximately 3,000 people, most of whom were 
        Americans, but also included hundreds of individuals 
        with foreign citizenships, nearly 350 New York Fire 
        Department personnel, and about 50 law enforcement 
        officers.
          (2) Downed United Airlines flight 93 was reportedly 
        intended, under the control of the al-Qaeda high-
        jackers, to crash into the White House or the Capitol 
        in an attempt to kill the President of the United 
        States or Members of the United States Congress.
          (3) The September 11, 2001, attacks were largely 
        planned and carried out by the al-Qaeda terrorist 
        network led by Osama bin Laden and his deputy Ayman al 
        Zawahiri, after which Osama bin Laden enjoyed safe 
        haven in Pakistan from where he continued to plot 
        deadly attacks against the United States and the world.
          (4) Since 2001, the United States has provided more 
        than $30 billion in security and economic aid to 
        Pakistan.
          (5) The United States very generously and swiftly 
        responded to the 2005 Kashmir Earthquake in Pakistan 
        with more than $200 million in emergency aid and the 
        support of several United States military aircraft, 
        approximately 1,000 United States military personnel, 
        including medical specialists, thousands of tents, 
        blankets, water containers and a variety of other 
        emergency equipment.
          (6) The United States again generously and swiftly 
        contributed approximately $150 million in emergency aid 
        to Pakistan following the 2010 Pakistan flood, in 
        addition to the service of nearly twenty United States 
        military helicopters, their flight crews, and other 
        resources to assist the Pakistan Army's relief efforts.
          (7) The United States continues to work tirelessly to 
        support Pakistan's economic development, including 
        millions of dollars allocated towards the development 
        of Pakistan's energy infrastructure, health services 
        and education system.
          (8) The United States and Pakistan continue to have 
        many critical shared interests, both economic and 
        security related, which could be the foundation for a 
        positive and mutually beneficial partnership.
          (9) Dr. Shakil Afridi, a Pakistani physician, is a 
        hero to whom the people of the United States, Pakistan 
        and the world owe a debt of gratitude for his help in 
        finally locating Osama bin Laden before more innocent 
        American, Pakistani and other lives were lost to this 
        terrorist leader.
          (10) Pakistan, the United States and the 
        international community had failed for nearly 10 years 
        following attacks of September 11, 2001, to locate and 
        bring Osama bin Laden, who continued to kill innocent 
        civilians in the Middle East, Asia, Europe, Africa and 
        the United States, to justice without the help of Dr. 
        Afridi.
          (11) The Government of Pakistan's imprisonment of Dr. 
        Afridi presents a serious and growing impediment to the 
        United States' bilateral relations with Pakistan.
          (12) The Government of Pakistan has leveled and 
        allowed baseless charges against Dr. Afridi in a 
        politically motivated, spurious legal process.
          (13) Dr. Afridi is currently imprisoned by the 
        Government of Pakistan, a deplorable and unconscionable 
        situation which calls into question Pakistan's actual 
        commitment to countering terrorism and undermines the 
        notion that Pakistan is a true ally in the struggle 
        against terrorism.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that Dr. 
Shakil Afridi is an international hero and that the Government 
of Pakistan should release him immediately from prison.
                              ----------

SEC. 12_. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON NORTH KOREA.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also 
        known as North Korea, continues to develop a ballistic 
        and nuclear weapons development program that poses a 
        grave threat to the United States, United States allies 
        the Republic of Korea, Japan, and Australia, and to 
        regional and global security.
          (2) North Korea continues to escalate the pace and 
        number of its ballistic missile launches, and to date 
        has conducted five nuclear tests.
          (3) On July 4, 2017, North Korea conducted the first 
        test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) it 
        claims is capable of reaching United States territory, 
        which, if reliable and effective, constitutes a new 
        threat to America's security.
          (4) On June 3, 2017, Secretary of Defense James 
        Mattis stated, during remarks at the Shangri-La 
        Dialogue, that ``the current North Korea program 
        signals a clear intent to acquire nuclear armed 
        ballistic missiles, including those of intercontinental 
        range that pose direct and immediate threats to our 
        allies, our partners and all the world''.
          (5) On April 27, 2017, Admiral Harry Harris, Jr., 
        Commander of the United States Pacific Command, 
        testified that ``North Korea continues to disregard 
        United Nations sanctions by developing, and threatening 
        to use intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear 
        weapons that will threaten the U.S. Homeland.''.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) the United States should act to counter North 
        Korea's continued development and testing of nuclear 
        weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles;
          (2) the development of a functional and operational 
        North Korean nuclear and intercontinental ballistic 
        missile program constitutes a threat to the security of 
        the United States and to our allies and partners in the 
        region;
          (3) the defense of the United States and our allies 
        against North Korean aggression remains a top priority, 
        and the United States maintains an unwavering and 
        steadfast commitment to the policy of extended 
        deterrence, especially with respect to South Korea and 
        Japan;
          (4) the United States supports the deployment of the 
        Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in 
        South Korea to counter North Korea's missile threat and 
        the deployment of ballistic missile defense systems to 
        allies in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region to protect from 
        the growing threat of North Korea's nuclear weapons and 
        ballistic missile programs;
          (5) the United States should encourage further 
        multilateral security cooperation and dialogue among 
        South Korea, Japan, and Australia to address the North 
        Korea threat;
          (6) the United States calls upon the People's 
        Republic of China to use its leverage to pressure North 
        Korea to cease its provocative behavior and abandon and 
        dismantle its nuclear and ballistic missile programs, 
        and comply with all relevant United Nations Security 
        Council resolutions;
          (7) the United States should fully enforce all 
        existing sanctions on North Korea and undertake a 
        comprehensive diplomatic effort to urge allies and 
        other countries to fully enforce, and build upon, 
        existing international sanctions; and
          (8) the United States should retain diplomatic, 
        economic, and military options to defend against and 
        pressure North Korea to abandon its illicit weapons 
        program.

  At the end of subtitle H of title XII, add the following:

SEC. 12__. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has 
        been the cornerstone of transatlantic security 
        cooperation and an enduring instrument for promoting 
        stability in Europe and around the world for over 65 
        years.
          (2) NATO currently faces a range of security 
        challenges, including Russian aggression in Eastern 
        Europe and instability and conflict in the Middle East 
        and North Africa.
          (3) In light of these and other threats, NATO must 
        have a credible deterrence to defend NATO members, if 
        necessary, against adversaries or threats.
          (4) Since the 2014 NATO summit in Wales and the 2016 
        summit in Warsaw, NATO has made progress in 
        implementing a Readiness Action Plan to enhance allied 
        readiness and collective defense in response to Russian 
        aggression. However, much work remains to be done.
          (5) NATO's solidarity is strengthened by bolstering 
        its conventional and nuclear deterrence, increasing 
        defense spending by NATO members, and continuing the 
        enlargement of NATO.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) NATO members should--
                  (A) continue to advance the NATO Open-Door 
                Policy and build on the successes of previous 
                enlargement initiatives;
                  (B) continue to work with countries that are 
                seeking to join NATO to prepare for entry;
                  (C) commend Montenegro's final accession to 
                NATO;
                  (D) seek a Dayton II agreement to resolve the 
                constitutional issues faced by Bosnia and 
                Herzegovina;
                  (E) work with the Republic of Kosovo to 
                prepare the country for entrance into the NATO 
                Partnership for Peace program;

                product to defense spending, 20 percent of 
                which should be dedicated to major equipment 
                procurement, as agreed at the 2014 Wales Summit 
                and reaffirmed at the 2016 Warsaw Summit;

                and address, through consensus, the security 
                threats facing the alliance, such as by 
                enhancing counterterrorism activities;

                movement throughout the territories of NATO

        robust military presence in Europe as a means of 
        promoting allied interoperability, providing visible 
        assurance to NATO allies, and deterring Russian 
        aggression in the region.

 72. An Amendment To Be Offered by Representative Wilson of Florida or 
                 Her Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

  At the end of subtitle H of title XII, add the following:

SEC. 12__. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING THE CHIBOK SCHOOLGIRLS AND BOKO 
                    HARAM.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) . The members of Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati 
        wal-Jihad, commonly known as Boko Haram, have 
        terrorized the people of Nigeria with increasing 
        violence since 2009, targeting military, government, 
        and civilian sites in Nigeria, including schools, 
        mosques, churches, markets, villages, and agricultural 
        centers, and killing thousands and abducting hundreds 
        of civilians in Nigeria and the surrounding countries.
          (2) On the night of April 14, 2014, 276 female 
        students, most of them between 15 and 18 years old, 
        were abducted by Boko Haram from the Chibok Government 
        Girls Secondary School, a boarding school located in 
        Borno state in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
          (3) While some Chibok girls have fled their captors 
        and others have been released through negotiations, 
        more than 100 Chibok girls remain in captivity.
          (4) In addition to kidnapping the Chibok schoolgirls, 
        Boko Haram has killed more than 20,000 people, coerced 
        women and girls into carrying out suicide missions, 
        displaced more than 3,000,000 Nigerians, tens of 
        thousands of whom are at risk of starving to death, and 
        caused thousand of school closures.
          (5) In supporting efforts to reunite the Chibok 
        schoolgirls with their families, the United States has 
        authorized the deployment of military personnel to 
        assist with intelligence, surveillance, and 
        reconnaissance, and provided training, equipment, and 
        humanitarian services to the populations affected by 
        and vulnerable to Boko Haram violence.
          (6) The Secretary of State designated several 
        individuals linked to Boko Haram, including its leader, 
        Abubakar Shekau, as Specially Designated Global 
        Terrorists in 2012, and designated Boko Haram as a 
        Foreign Terrorist Organization in November 2013.
          (7) The Senate and the House of Representatives have 
        both passed legislation and undertaken other 
        initiatives to condemn Boko Haram and support the 
        Chibok schoolgirls.
          (8) In addition to legislation, members of Congress 
        have traveled to Nigeria to meet with freed Chibok 
        schoolgirls and their families, held briefings, press 
        conferences, and hearings, and, every week that 
        Congress is in session, participated in Wear Something 
        Red Wednesday, a bipartisan campaign led by Democratic 
        Leader Nancy Pelosi, Republican Conference Chair Cathy 
        McMorris Rodgers, and Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, 
        during which lawmakers wear a red outfit or accessory 
        and take group photos to share on social media to raise 
        awareness about the kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls.
          (9) The 114th Congress unanimously passed S. 1632, 
        which President Barack Obama signed into law on 
        December 14, 2016, to direct the Secretary of State and 
        the Secretary of Defense to jointly develop a five-year 
        strategy to aid Nigeria and the Multinational Joint 
        Task Force, composed of troops from Benin, Cameroon, 
        Chad, Niger, and Nigeria, to combat Boko Haram.
          (10) On June 27, 2017, President Donald Trump met 
        with two freed Chibok schoolgirls at the White House.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--Congress--
          (1) commends the Secretary of State, Secretary of 
        Defense, and Director of National Intelligence for 
        delivering a report to Congress on a five-year strategy 
        for the United States to employ diplomatic, 
        development, defense, and other tools to assist and 
        enable our African partners to lead the effort to 
        degrade and ultimately defeat Boko Haram, the Islamic 
        State in Iraq and ash Sham - West Africa (ISIS-WA), and 
        any potential splinter or successor groups;
          (2) affirms United States support for the 
        international effort to degrade Boko Haram and ISIS-WA 
        and to assist the Multinational Joint Task Force to 
        address the underlying drivers of violent extremism; 
        and
          (3) supports the efforts of the Department of Defense 
        to implement a United States strategy for countering 
        Boko Haram and ISIS-WA.

 80. An Amendment To Be Offered by Representative Correa of California 
               or His Designee, Debatable for 10 Minutes

  At the end of subtitle D of title XVI, add the following new 
section:

SEC. 1656. STRATEGY FOR THE OFFENSIVE USE OF CYBER CAPABILITIES.

  (a) Findings.--
          (1) The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (commonly 
        known as ``NATO'') remains a critical alliance for the 
        United States and a cost-effective, flexible means of 
        providing security to the most important allies of the 
        United States.
          (2) The regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin is 
        actively working to erode democratic systems of NATO 
        member states, including the United States.
          (3) According to the report of the Office of the 
        Director of National Intelligence dated January 6, 
        2017, on the Russian Federation's hack of the United 
        States presidential election: ``Russian efforts to 
        influence the 2016 presidential election represent the 
        most recent expression of Moscow's longstanding desire 
        to undermine the US-led liberal democratic order.''.
          (4) As recently as May 4, 2017, the press reported a 
        massive cyber hack of French President Emmanuel 
        Macron's campaign, likely attributable to Russian 
        actors.
          (5) It is in the core interests of the United States 
        to enhance the offensive and defensive cyber 
        capabilities of NATO member states to deter and defend 
        against Russian cyber and influence operations.
          (6) Enhanced offensive cyber capabilities would 
        enable the United States to demonstrate strength and 
        deter the Russian Federation from threatening NATO, 
        while reassuring allies, without a provocative buildup 
        of conventional military forces.
  (b) Sense of Congress on Cyber Strategy of the Department of 
Defense.--It is the sense of Congress that --
          (1) the Secretary of Defense should update the cyber 
        strategy of the Department of Defense (as that strategy 
        is described in the Department of Defense document 
        titled ``The Department of Defense Cyber Strategy'' 
        dated April 15, 2015); and
          (2) in updating the cyber strategy of the Department, 
        the Secretary should--
                  (A) specifically develop an offensive cyber 
                strategy that includes plans for the offensive 
                use of cyber capabilities, including computer 
                network exploitation and computer network 
                attacks, to thwart air, land, or sea attacks by 
                the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin 
                and other adversaries;
                  (B) provide guidance on integrating offensive 
                tools into the cyber arsenal of the Department; 
                and
                  (C) assist NATO partners, through the NATO 
                Cooperative Cyber Center of Excellence and 
                other entities, in developing offensive cyber 
                capabilities.
  (c) Strategy for Offensive Use of Cyber Capabilities.--
          (1) Strategy required.--The President shall develop a 
        written strategy for the offensive use of cyber 
        capabilites by departments and agencies of the Federal 
        Government.
          (2) Elements.--The strategy developed under paragraph 
        (1) shall include, at minimum--
                  (A) a description of enhancements that are 
                needed to improve the offensive cyber 
                capabilities of the United States and partner 
                nations, including NATO member states; and
                  (B) a statement of principles concerning the 
                appropriate deployment of offensive cyber 
                capabilities.
          (3) Submission to congress.--
                  (A) In general.--Not later than 180 days 
                after the date of the enactment of this Act, 
                the President shall submit to the congressional 
                defense committees (as that term is defined in 
                section 101(a)(16) of title 10, United States 
                Code) the strategy developed under paragraph 
                (1).
                  (B) Form of submission.--The strategy 
                submitted under subparagraph (A) may be 
                submitted in classified form.
  (d) International Cooperation.--
          (1) Authority to provide technical assistance.--The 
        President, acting through the Secretary of Defense and 
        with the concurrence of the Secretary of State, is 
        authorized to provide technical assistance to NATO 
        member states to assist such states in developing and 
        enhancing offensive cyber capabilities.
          (2) Technical experts.--In providing technical 
        assistance under paragraph (1), the President, acting 
        through the NATO Cooperative Cyber Center of 
        Excellence, may detail technical experts in the field 
        of cyber operations to NATO member states.
          (3) Rule of construction.--Nothing in this section 
        shall be construed to preclude or limit the authorities 
        of the President or the Secretary of Defense to provide 
        cyber-related assistance to foreign countries, 
        including the authority of the Secretary to provide 
        such assistance under section 333 of title 10, United 
        States Code.
