into under subsection (a) unless the Secretary of Defense 
certifies to the congressional defense committees, in writing, 
not later than 30 days before entry into the contract, each of

decision authority for the Ford class aircraft carrier program:
            (1) The use of such a contract will result in 
        significant savings compared to the total anticipated 
        costs of carrying out the program through annual 
        contracts. In certifying cost savings under the 
        preceding sentence, the Secretary shall include a 
        written explanation of--
                    (A) the estimated obligations and

                ensure the estimated cost savings are realized.
            (2) There is a reasonable expectation that 
        throughout the contemplated contract period the 
        Secretary of Defense will request funding for the 
        contract at the level required to avoid contract 
        cancellation.
            (3) There is a stable design for the property to be 
        acquired and that the technical risks associated with 
        such property are not excessive.

        and the anticipated cost avoidance through the use of a 
        contract authorized under subsection (a) are realistic.

        year will include the funding required to execute the 
        program without cancellation.

        contract.

SEC. 317. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION PROGRAMS.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The Department of Defense has identified nearly 
        39,500 sites that fall under the installation 
        restoration program sites and munitions response sites.
            (2) The installation response program addresses 
        contamination from hazardous substances, pollutants, or 
        contaminants and active military installations, 
        formerly used defense site properties, and base 
        realignment and closure locations in the United States.
            (3) Munitions response sites are known or suspected 
        to contain unexploded ordnance, discarded military 
        munitions, or munitions constitutes are addressed 
        through the military munitions response program.
            (4) The installation restoration program sites and 
        munitions response sites have had significant impacts 
        on state and local governments that have had to bear 
        the increased costs of environmental degradation, 
        notably groundwater contamination, and local 
        populations that have had to live with the consequences 
        of contaminated drinking, including increased health 
        concerns and decreasing property values.
            (5) Through the end of fiscal year 2017, the 
        Department of Defense had achieved response complete at 
        86 percent of installation restoration program sites 
        and munitions response sites, but projects that it will 
        fall short of meeting its goal of 90 percent by the end 
        of fiscal year 2018.
            (6) The fiscal year 2019 budget request for 
        environmental restoration and base realignment and 
        closure amounted to nearly $1,318,320,000, a decrease 
        of $53,429,000 from the amount authorized in the 
        National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018 
        (Public Law 115-91).
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the environmental restoration and base 
        realignment and closure programs are important for the 
        protection of the environment, the health of the 
        military and civilian personnel and their families who 
        live and work on military installations, to ensure that 
        current and legacy military operations do not adversely 
        affect the health or environments of surrounding 
        communities;
            (2) the Department of Defense and the Armed Forces 
        should seek to reduce the financial burden on state and 
        local government who are bearing significant costs of 
        cleanup stemming from defense related activities;
            (3) the Department of Defense and the Armed Forces 
        should expedite and streamline cleanup at locations 
        where contamination is having a direct impact on 
        civilian access to clean drinking water;
            (4) the Department of Defense and the Armed Forces 
        should continue to engage with and help allay local 
        community concerns about the safety of the drinking 
        water due to environmental degradation caused by 
        defense related activities; and
            (5) the Department of Defense should seek 
        opportunities to accelerate environmental restoration 
        efforts where feasible, to include programming 
        additional resources for response actions, investing in 
        technology solutions that may expedite response 
        actions, improving contracting procedures, increasing 
        contracting capacity, and seeking opportunities for 
        partnerships and other cooperative approaches.

SEC. 318. JOINT STUDY ON THE IMPACT OF WIND FARMS ON WEATHER RADARS AND 
                    MILITARY OPERATIONS.

    (a) In General.--The Secretary of Defense shall enter into 
an arrangement with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration to conduct a study on how to improve existing 
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and National 
Weather Service tools to reflect the latest data and policies 
to improve consistency in weather radars, with a focus on a 
research and development and field test evaluation program to 
validate existing mitigation options and develop additional 
options for weather radar impact, in collaboration with the 
National Weather Service, the Department of Energy, and the 
Federal Aviation Administration, and with input from academia 
and industry.
    (b) Elements.--The study required pursuant to subsection 
(a) shall include the following:
            (1) The potential impacts of wind farms on NEXRAD 
        radars and other Federal radars for weather forecasts 
        and warnings used by the Department of Defense, the 
        National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and 
        the National Weather Service.
            (2) Recommendations to reduce, mitigate, or 
        eliminate the potential impacts.
            (3) Recommendations for addressing the impacts to 
        NEXRADs and weather radar due to increasing turbine 
        heights.
            (4) Recommendations to ensure wind farms do not 
        impact the ability of the National Oceanic and 
        Atmospheric Administration and the National Weather 
        Service to warn or forecast hazardous weather.
            (5) The cumulative impacts of multiple wind farms 
        near a single radar on the ability of the National 
        Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National

        projects, based on project layout, turbine orientation, 
        number of turbines, density of turbines, proximity to 
        radar, or turbine height result in greater impacts to 
        the missions of Department of Defense, the National 
        Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the 
        National Weather Service, and if so, how can those 
        projects be better cited to reduce or eliminate NEXRAD 
        impacts.
            (7) Case studies where the Department of Defense, 
        the National Weather Service, and industry have worked 
        together to implement solutions.

SEC. 334. SURFACE WARFARE TRAINING IMPROVEMENT.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) In 2017, there were three collisions and one 
        grounding involving United States Navy ships in the 
        Western Pacific. The two most recent mishaps involved 
        separate incidents of a Japan-based United States Navy 
        destroyer colliding with a commercial merchant vessel, 
        resulting in the combined loss of 17 sailors.
            (2) The causal factors in these four mishaps are 
        linked directly to a failure to take sufficient action 
        in accordance with the rules of good seamanship.
            (3) Because risks are high in the maritime 
        environment, there are widely accepted standards for 
        safe seamanship and navigation. In the United States, 
        the International Convention on Standards of Training, 
        Certification and Watchkeeping (hereinafter in this 
        section referred to as the ``STCW'') for Seafarers, 
        standardizes the skills and foundational knowledge a 
        maritime professional must have in seamanship and 
        navigation.
            (4) Section 568 of the National Defense 
        Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 (Public Law 114-
        328; 130 Stat. 2139) endorsed the STCW process and 
        required the Secretary of Defense to maximize the 
        extent to which Armed Forces service, training, and 
        qualifications are creditable toward meeting merchant 
        mariner licenses and certifications.
            (5) The Surface Warfare Officer Course Curriculum 
        is being modified to include ten individual Go/No Go 
        Mariner Assessments/Competency Check Milestones to 
        ensure standardization and quality of the surface 
        warfare community.
            (6) The Military-to-Mariner Transition report of 
        September 2017 notes the Army maintains an extensive 
        STCW qualifications program and that a similar Navy 
        program does not exist.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the Secretary of the Navy should establish a 
        comprehensive individual proficiency assessment process 
        and include such an assessment prior to all operational 
        surface warfare officer tour assignments; and
            (2) the Secretary of the Navy should significantly 
        expand the STCW qualifications process to improve 
        seamanship and navigation individual skills training 
        for surface warfare candidates, surface warfare 
        officers, quartermasters and operations specialists to 
        include an increased set of courses that directly 
        correspond to STCW standards.
    (c) Report.--Not later than March 1, 2019, the Secretary of 
the Navy shall submit to the congressional defense committees a 
report that includes each of the following:
            (1) A detailed description of the surface warfare 
        officer assessments process.
            (2) A list of programs that have been approved for 
        credit toward merchant mariner credentials.
            (3) A complete gap analysis of the existing surface 
        warfare training curriculum and STCW.
            (4) A complete gap analysis of the existing surface 
        warfare training curriculum and the 3rd mate unlimited 
        licensing requirement.
            (5) An assessment of surface warfare options to 
        complete the 3rd mate unlimited license and the STCW 
        qualification.

        economic evaluation report to update the benefit-to-
        cost ratio for building a new lock at the Soo Locks; 
        and
            (6) the Secretary of the Army and all relevant 
        Federal agencies should--
                    (A) expedite the completion of the report 
                described in paragraph (5) and ensure the 
                analysis adequately reflects the critical 
                importance of the Soo Locks infrastructure to 
                the national security and economy of the United
