                                PURPOSE

    The purpose of this bill is to provide appropriations for 
fiscal year 2018, beginning October 1, 2017, and ending 
September 30, 2018, for energy and water development, and for 
other related purposes. It supplies funds for water resources 
development programs and related activities of the Corps of 
Engineers' civil works program in title I; for the Department 
of the Interior's Bureau of Reclamation and Central Utah 
Project in title II; for the Department of Energy's energy 
research and development activities, including environmental 
restoration and waste management, and atomic energy defense 
activities of the National Nuclear Security Administration in 
title III; and for independent agencies and commissions, 
including the Appalachian Regional Commission, Delta Regional 
Authority, Denali Commission, Northern Border Regional 
Commission, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in title IV.

                SUMMARY OF ESTIMATES AND RECOMMENDATIONS

    The fiscal year 2018 budget estimates for the bill total 
$34,188,515,000 in new budget (obligational) authority. The 
recommendation of the Committee totals $39,267,376,000. This is 
$5,078,861,000 above the budget estimates and $817,376,000 
above the enacted appropriation for the current fiscal year.

                         Subcommittee Hearings

    The Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water 
Development held four sessions in connection with the fiscal 
year 2018 appropriations bill. Witnesses included officials and 
representatives of the Federal agencies under the 
subcommittee's jurisdiction.
    The recommendations for fiscal year 2018, therefore, have 
been developed after careful consideration of available data.

                              INTRODUCTION

    The Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water 
Development's allocation totals $38,400,000,000 of net budget 
authority for fiscal year 2018, including adjustments, which 
represents an increase of $629,000,000 over fiscal year 2017. 
Within the amount recommended, $21,000,000,000 is classified as 
defense (050) spending and $17,400,000,000 is classified as 
non-defense (non-050) spending.
    The Committee's constitutional responsibility to oversee 
the Federal Government's expenditure of taxpayer dollars 
requires setting priorities and ensuring these funds are 
executed as Congress has directed. To develop this 
recommendation, the Committee held four budget hearings in June 
2017 to examine the budget requests for the Corps of Engineers, 
Bureau of Reclamation, Department of Energy, National Nuclear 
Security Administration, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. 
The hearings provided officials from the agencies with an 
opportunity to present the administration's most pressing 
priorities to the Committee. The Committee also invited and 
received recommendations from Senators and outside witnesses.
    The Committee's recommendation reflects that process and 
includes funding for the highest priority activities across the 
agencies funded in the bill. The recommendation includes funds 
for critical water infrastructure, including our Nation's 
inland waterways, ports, and harbors; agricultural water supply 
and drought relief in the West; groundbreaking scientific 
research and development, including world-class supercomputing; 
support for the Nation's nuclear weapons, non-proliferation, 
and nuclear Navy programs; and critical economic development. 
The Committee did not recommend funding for low-priority 
programs, and rescinded unused funds from prior years.
    Oroville Dam and Dam Safety Evaluations.--The Committee is 
concerned that the failure of the auxiliary and emergency 
spillways at Oroville Dam in California may be indicative of a 
broader flaw in Federal and state evaluations of dam safety. 
The Committee understands that the Oroville Dam Spillway 
Incident Forensic Investigation Team report is expected to be 
released this fall. Within 90 days of the release of this 
report, the Army Corps of Engineers, the Bureau of Reclamation, 
and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission shall jointly 
brief the Committee on efforts to incorporate lessons learned 
from Oroville into dam inspection protocols across all three 
agencies and their state partners, including an analysis of: 
the Forensic Investigation Team report examining the causes of 
the Oroville Dam spillway failures; the utility of a subsequent 
independent panel to evaluate whether the Corps, the Bureau and 
the Commission should revise their dam safety procedures in 
light of lessons learned from the Oroville incident; whether 
additional safety inspections should be required after large 
storms; whether the projected effects of climate change and 
atmospheric rivers are appropriately considered in safety 
requirements and testing protocols; whether new non-invasive 
structural health monitoring technologies have the potential to 
improve safety inspections; and whether additional actions 
should be taken to ensure the safety of dams without emergency 
spillways, such as Trinity Dam in California.

                                TITLE I

                       CORPS OF ENGINEERS--CIVIL

                         DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY

                       Corps of Engineers--Civil

                       OVERVIEW OF RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $6,166,400,000 for the Corps of 
Engineer [Corps], an increase of $1,164,400,000 from the budget 
request.
    The Committee recommendation sets priorities by supporting 
our Nation's water infrastructure. Specifically, the Committee 
recommendation provides adequate appropriations to utilize all 
of the estimated fiscal year 2018 revenues from the Inland 
Waterways Trust Fund and meets the target prescribed in the 
Water Resources Reform and Development Act [WRRDA] of 2014, as 
amended, for the Corps projects eligible for Harbor Maintenance 
Trust Funds.

                              INTRODUCTION

    The Corps' civil works mission is to provide quality, 
responsive engineering services to the Nation in peace and war. 
Approximately 23,000 civilians and about 290 military officers 
are responsible for executing the civil works mission. This 
bill only funds the civil works functions of the Corps.
    The Corps maintains our inland waterways, keeps our ports 
open, manages a portion of our drinking water supply, provides 
emission free electricity from dams, looks after many of our 
recreational waters, helps manage the river levels during 
flooding, provides environmental stewardship, and provides 
emergency response to natural disasters. The annual net 
economic benefit generated by the Corps' civil works mission is 
estimated to be $109,830,000,000, which equates to a return of 
about $16.60 for every $1 expended.
    The Corps' responsibilities include:
  --navigation systems, including 13,000 miles of deep draft 
        channels, 12,000 miles of inland waterways, 239 lock 
        chambers, and 1,067 harbors which handle over 2.3 
        billion tons of cargo annually;
  --flood risk management infrastructure, including 709 dams, 
        14,700 miles of levees, and multiple hurricane and 
        storm damage risk reduction projects along the coast;
  --municipal and industrial water supply storage at 136 
        projects spread across 25 States;
  --environmental stewardship, infrastructure, and ecosystem 
        restoration;
  --recreation for approximately 370 million recreation visits 
        per year to Corps' projects;
  --regulation of waters under Federal statutes; and
  --maintaining hydropower capacity of nearly 24,000 megawatts 
        at 75 projects.

                         DEEP DRAFT NAVIGATION

    The budget request this year fails to adequately fund our 
Nation's harbors. The Committee is disappointed the 
administration's budget only proposes to spend $965,000,000 
from the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund [HMTF], $375,000,000 
below the spending target established by the WRRDA 2014, as 
amended.
    For fiscal year 2018, the Committee recommends an estimated 
$1,340,000,000 for HMTF-related activities meeting the spending 
target established by WRRDA 2014, as amended, which is 
$375,000,000 above the budget request.

                        INLAND WATERWAYS SYSTEM

    The Committee notes that the budget request only proposed 
to spend $26,250,000 of the $105,000,000 estimated to be 
deposited in fiscal year 2018 into the Inland Waterways Trust 
Fund [IWTF]. This would leave an estimated $78,750,000 of 
fiscal year 2018 deposits unspent. The budget request also only 
proposes to fund a single project, Olmsted Lock, and eliminates 
funding for the other three ongoing projects that are already 
under construction and received funding last year. The 
Committee does not support the administration's proposal to 
reform inland waterways financing by increasing the amount paid 
by commercial navigation users of inland waterways, 
particularly when the administration does not propose to spend 
the funding already collected.

                           ADDITIONAL FUNDING

    The Committee has recommended funding above the budget 
request for Investigations, Construction, Operations and 
Maintenance, and Mississippi River and Tributaries. Except for 
funds proposed for new starts, this funding is for additional 
work that either was not included in the administration's 
request or was inadequately budgeted. A study or project may 
not be excluded from evaluation for being ``inconsistent with 
administration policy.''
    The administration is reminded these funds are in addition 
to its budget request, and administration budget metrics shall 
not be a reason to disqualify a study or project from being 
funded. The focus of the allocation process shall favor the 
obligation, rather than the expenditure, of funds for work in 
fiscal year 2018.
    Funding associated with each category may be allocated to 
any eligible study or project, as appropriate, within that 
category; funding associated with each subcategory may be 
allocated only to eligible studies or projects, as appropriate, 
within that subcategory.
    Work Plan.--Not later than 60 days after the date of 
enactment of this act, the Corps shall provide to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress a work 
plan consistent with the following general guidance, as well as 
the specific direction the Committee provides within each 
account: (1) a detailed description of the rating system(s) 
developed and used to evaluate studies and projects; (2) 
delineation of how these funds are to be allocated; (3) a 
summary of the work to be accomplished with each allocation, 
including phase of work; and (4) a list of all studies and 
projects that were considered eligible for funding but did not 
receive funding, including an explanation of whether the study 
or project could have used funds in fiscal year 2018 and the 
specific reasons each study or project was considered as being 
less competitive for an allocation of funds. The Corps is 
directed not to obligate any funding above the budget request 
for studies or projects until the Committees have approved the 
work plan for fiscal year 2018.
    The work plan shall include a single group of new starts 
for Investigations and Construction. None of the funds may be 
used for any item for which the Committee has specifically 
denied funding.
    New Starts.--The recommendation includes six new study 
starts and five new construction starts to be distributed 
across the three main mission areas of the Corps. Of the new 
study starts, two shall be for navigation studies, two shall be 
for flood and storm damage reduction studies, one shall be for 
an additional navigation or flood and storm damage reduction 
study, and one shall be for an environmental restoration study. 
Of the new study starts for navigation, one shall be for a 
Small, Remote, or Subsistence Harbor. Of the new construction 
starts, two shall be for navigation projects, one shall be for 
a flood and storm damage reduction project, one shall be for a 
coastal storm damage reduction project, and one shall be for an 
environmental restoration project.
    Consideration of studies and projects for selection as new 
starts shall not be limited to only those proposed in the 
administration's budget request. As all new starts are to be 
chosen by the Corps, all shall be considered of equal 
importance, and the expectation is that future budget 
submissions will include appropriate funding for all new starts 
selected.
    The Corps shall consider preconstruction engineering and 
design [PED] phase work as a continuation of the investigations 
and by definition, a study is not completed until PED is 
completed. No new start or new investment decision shall be 
required when moving from feasibility to PED. When evaluating 
proposals for new feasibility studies, the Corps is encouraged 
to give priority to those studies with executed Feasibility 
Cost Sharing Agreements and a sponsor with the ability to 
provide any necessary cost share for the study phase. The Corps 
is encouraged to support opportunities to restore critical 
habitat and enhance the Nation's economic development, job 
growth, and international competitiveness.
    A new construction start shall not be required for work 
undertaken to correct a design deficiency on an existing 
Federal project; it shall be considered ongoing work.

                               ASIAN CARP

    The Corps is directed to provide quarterly updates to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on the 
progress and status of efforts to prevent the further spread of 
Asian carp as well as the location and density of carp 
populations, including the use of emergency procedures.
    The Corps shall collaborate with the U.S. Coast Guard, the 
State of Illinois, and members of the Asian Carp Regional 
Coordinating Committee to institute navigation protocols 
identified by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to reduce the 
risk of vessels inadvertently carrying aquatic invasive 
species, including Asian carp, through the Electric Dispersal 
Barrier near Romeoville, Illinois and locks and dams in the 
Illinois River. The Committee directs the Corps to institute 
these navigation protocols within a year of enactment of this 
act. The Committee is aware that the Corps and other Federal 
and State agencies are conducting ongoing research on potential 
solutions.

                             REPROGRAMMING

    The Committee is retaining the reprogramming legislation 
provided in the Energy and Water Development and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017.

                          SAVINGS AND SLIPPAGE

    Savings and slippage [S&S;] is a budgetary term that 
recognizes that nothing ever goes completely as planned. The 
Committee recognizes that many changes may occur between the 
Corps' budget formulation--beginning 22 months before it is 
submitted to the Committee--and when funds are actually 
appropriated. Although the Committee has attempted to identify 
and address changes through coordination with the Corps, the 
Committee realizes that actual appropriations may not be 
enacted until later in the year. Accordingly, the Committee has 
included, as in prior years, a reasonable percentage of S&S; 
within Investigations, Construction, and Operations and 
Maintenance as a way to accommodate additional project needs, 
even if funding is insufficient. Upon applying the S&S; amounts, 
normal reprogramming procedures shall be undertaken to account 
for schedule slippages, accelerations, or other unforeseen 
conditions.

                   CONGRESSIONALLY DIRECTED SPENDING

    The Committee did not accept or include congressionally 
directed spending, as defined in section 5(a) of rule XLIV of 
the Standing Rules of the Senate. However, the Committee has 
recommended additional programmatic funds for Investigations, 
Construction, Operations and Maintenance, and Mississippi River 
and Tributaries to address deficiencies in the budget request. 
In some cases, these additional funds have been included within 
defined categories, as in prior years, and are described in 
more detail in their respective sections below.

                         REPORTING REQUIREMENT

    The Corps shall provide a monthly report to the Committees 
on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress, which includes 
the total budget authority and unobligated balances by year for 
each program, project, or activity, including any prior year 
appropriations.
    The Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) shall 
provide a monthly report to the Committees on Appropriations of 
both Houses of Congress, which includes the total budget 
authority and unobligated balances by year for each activity 
funded in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army 
(Civil Works) account, including any prior year appropriations.

                             INVESTIGATIONS

Appropriations, 2017....................................    $121,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................      86,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     113,465,000

    The Committee recommends $113,465,000 for Investigations, 
an increase of $27,465,000 from the budget request. The 
Committee's recommendation allows the Corps to begin six new 
feasibility study starts.

                              INTRODUCTION

    Funding in this account is used to develop feasibility and 
PED studies to address the Nation's water infrastructure needs, 
in support of project authorization. The Committee recognizes 
that the administration's budget does not provide adequate 
funding for Investigations, and specifically PED funding to 
allow many of America's most important waterways to move 
efficiently from planning to construction. The Committee 
therefore recommends additional funding to be used to 
seamlessly continue feasibility studies into the PED study 
phase.

                               NEW STARTS

    The Corps is directed to designate new starts in accordance 
with the direction in the front matter under the heading 
``Additional Funding''. The Committee is disappointed the 
fiscal year 2017 work plan only utilized one of the six new 
study starts provided in the Energy and Water Development and 
Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017. Because the 
administration's budget request includes funding to complete 26 
studies in fiscal year 2018--15 more than was recommended in 
the fiscal year 2017 budget request--the Committee directs the 
Corps to utilize all of the new starts provided by Congress in 
fiscal year 2018.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

    The table below displays the budget request and the 
Committee's recommendation for Investigations. Funding is 
classified as either for feasibility or PED studies, as 
indicated in the columns, to provide greater transparency in 
the study phases.

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

    Arctic Deep Draft Port Study.--The Committee encourages the 
Corps to continue to thoroughly evaluate the proposed deep 
draft port in Nome, taking into account the wide range of 
economic benefits the project would bring to the region, the 
expansion of search and rescue capabilities it would provide, 
and the national security reasons for its construction. The 
Committee supports the creation of an Arctic port network north 
of Dutch Harbor.
    Aquatic Invasive Species Dispersal Barrier.--The Corps is 
encouraged to consider the feasibility of a dispersal barrier 
to mitigate Champlain Canal as a vector for invasive species, 
as authorized in section 5146 of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 2007 (Public Law 110-114).
    Central Everglades Planning Project Validation Study.--The 
Committee recognizes the importance of restoring America's 
Everglades, and urges the Corps to expedite the required 
validation report for the Central Everglades Planning Project.
    Disposition of Completed Projects.--The Committee 
recommendation includes funding for Disposition of Completed 
Projects and intends that these funds be used for the studies 
already underway or in the budget request. The Corps shall 
notify the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress before it deviates from this direction. The Committee 
understands the Corps will be making a ``no action'' 
recommendation for the Upper Monongahela and Allegheny River 
studies. No funds provided may be used to take any action on 
the recommendations from the Upper Monongahela and Allegheny 
River studies.
    Economic Impact Studies.--The Committee recognizes there 
are authorized unfunded projects in need of an updated economic 
impact study. In order to properly show the economic benefits 
of such authorized projects, the Committee recommendation 
includes additional funding in this account to update economic 
impact studies where appropriate.
    Planning Assistance to States.--The Committee encourages 
the Corps to prioritize ongoing studies which consist of master 
plan development to address city water, sanitary sewer, and 
stormwater infrastructure needs.
    North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study.--The Corps is 
encouraged to fund the nine focus areas identified in the North 
Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study.
    Optimal Dredge Fleet Scheduling.--The Committee applauds 
the research efforts by the Corps' Engineer Research and 
Development Center to support a dredge fleet scheduling 
optimization approach. With limited Federal resources to 
perform the extensive maintenance dredging needs across the 
Nation, it is imperative the Corps considers contracting 
methods that are regional or system-wide. This approach can 
achieve efficiencies that could be realized by sequencing the 
work such that mobilization costs are minimized between jobs 
while also observing the various environmental work windows. 
Along with the Regional Sediment Management Program in the 
Operation and Maintenance account, which utilizes strategies 
that link sediment management actions across multiple 
authorized Corps projects, costs may be significantly reduced 
allowing limited funding to reach more projects in need. Within 
120 days of enactment of this act, the Corps shall brief the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on the 
status of ongoing demonstration projects, the development of 
long-term strategies to implement these approaches nationally, 
and any policy or operational challenges associated with 
carrying out such efforts.
    Research and Development.--The Committee recommends 
additional funding for increasing collaboration research 
partnerships to advance the capacity to evaluate methods for 
restoring ecosystem conservation.
    Research and Development, Additional Topic--Urban Flood 
Damage Reduction and Stream Restoration in Arid Regions.--The 
Committee recommendation includes $1,500,000 for the Corps' 
research and development [R&D;] program to continue its focus on 
the management of water resources projects that promote public 
safety, reduce risk, improve operational efficiencies, reduce 
flood damage in arid and semi-arid regions, sustain the 
environment, and position our water resource systems to be 
managed as systems and adaptable due to the implications of a 
changing climate. The R&D; program should also continue its 
focus on science and technology efforts to address needs for 
resilient water resources infrastructure.
    Salton Sea.--The Committee urges the Corps to expedite 
completion of the feasibility analysis for the Salton Sea 
Restoration Program and to closely coordinate its planning 
efforts with the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
    South Atlantic Coastal Study.--The Committee encourages the 
Corps to conduct, at full Federal expense, a study of the 
coastal areas in the South Atlantic Division to identify the 
risks and vulnerabilities of those areas to increased hurricane 
and storm damage as authorized in section 1204 of the Water 
Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation [WIIN] Act.
    Upper Connecticut River Basin.--The Corps is encouraged to 
work with interested local sponsors to identify wetland and 
ecosystem restoration projects in the Upper Connecticut River 
Basin for the purposes of habitat protection restoration, 
streambank stabilization, fish passage, water quality 
improvement, and restoration of stream stability through 
structural and non-structural work.
    Upper Mississippi River-Illinois Waterway System.--
Unfortunately, the bipartisan support for the Navigation and 
Ecosystem Sustainability Program [NESP], spanning almost a 
decade, has not resulted in NESP's implementation. Last year, 
the Corps provided Congress with a report concluding that an 
updated economic analysis of the project is necessary before it 
can be considered as part of the Civil Works budget. While the 
Committee disagrees with this conclusion, if the Secretary 
determines it is necessary, the Corps is encouraged to fund an 
economic re-evaluation that will provide a benefit cost ratio 
and inform how to move forward with the project. Such a re-
evaluation should include a multi-modal transportation 
evaluation and consideration of the ecological benefits.
    Water Quality and Salinity Impacts on Oyster Reefs.--The 
Committee encourages the Corps, when conducting or reviewing 
environmental assessments or environmental impact statements 
for navigation or coastal restoration projects in areas where 
oyster reefs exist, to consider water quality and salinity 
impacts on those reefs and, when appropriate, to mitigate any 
negative impacts. The Committee also looks forward to the 
Corps' completion of the congressionally required assessment 
and report on the beneficial use of dredged material as 
substrate for oyster reef development.
    Additional Funding for Ongoing Work.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $27,465,000 in additional funds for 
Investigations. From these additional funds, the Corps is 
authorized to begin six new feasibility studies. The Corps is 
directed to allocate these additional funds in accordance with 
the direction in the front matter under the heading 
``Additional Funding''. Of the additional funds provided in 
this account, the Committee encourages the Corps to allocate 
$1,000,000 for the development of a hydraulic model that will 
assist no fewer than five States along a major navigable 
waterway with making regional strategic flood risk management 
decisions at 100 percent Federal cost. Of the additional 
funding recommended in this account for Coastal and Deep Draft 
Navigation, the Corps shall allocate not less than $2,194,000 
for the continuation of ongoing General Reevaluation Reports. 
Additionally, the Corps shall comply with the following 
direction in allocating funds made available for 
Investigations:
  --When evaluating ongoing studies for funding, the Corps 
        shall consider completing or accelerating ongoing 
        studies which will enhance the Nation's economic 
        development, job growth, and international 
        competitiveness; studies located in areas that have 
        suffered recent natural disasters; or studies for areas 
        where revisions to flood frequency flow lines may 
        result in existing infrastructure failing to meet the 
        requirements under the National Flood Insurance 
        Program.
  --The Corps shall include appropriate requests for funding in 
        future budget submissions for PED and new feasibility 
        studies initiated in fiscal year 2018. The Corps shall 
        prepare the budget to reflect study completions, as 
        defined as completion of PED.
  --Funding shall be available for existing studies, including 
        studies in the PED phase, and the updating of economic 
        analyses and cost estimates for studies that have 
        received appropriations for PED that were either not 
        included in the budget request or for which the 
        recommendation in the budget request was inadequate. 
        Ongoing studies that are actively progressing and can 
        utilize the funding in a timely manner are eligible for 
        these additional funds.

                              CONSTRUCTION

Appropriations, 2017....................................  $1,876,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................   1,020,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,703,150,000

    The Committee recommends $1,703,150,000 for Construction, 
an increase of $683,150,000 from the budget request. The 
recommendation includes a rescission of $35,000,000 of 
unobligated balances from fiscal year 2011 and prior resulting 
in a net appropriation of $1,668,150,000. The Committee's 
recommendation allows the Corps to select five new construction 
starts to begin in fiscal year 2018.

                              INTRODUCTION

    Funding in this account is used for construction, major 
rehabilitation, and related activities for water resources 
development projects having navigation, flood and storm damage 
reduction, water supply, hydroelectric, environmental 
restoration, and other attendant benefits to the Nation. Funds 
to be derived from the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund will be 
applied to cover the Federal share of the Dredged Material 
Disposal Facilities Program.
    The Committee is concerned that the budget request is 
inadequate to meet the needs of projects that depend on funding 
from this account. Consequently, the recommendation includes 
$648,150,000 in additional funding for ongoing work.

                               NEW STARTS

    The Corps is directed to designate new starts in accordance 
with the direction in the front matter under the heading 
``Additional Funding''.

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

    Advanced Project Partnership Agreements.--The Committee 
notes the importance of partnerships with local sponsors who 
advance money beyond their non-Federal share in an effort to 
reduce the overall cost of construction for deep-draft 
navigation projects. Keeping projects on schedule to meet 
increasing demands for larger ships calling U.S. ports is 
critical. Therefore, the Committee directs the Corps to allow 
local sponsors who have signed Advanced Project Partnership 
Agreements to receive construction funds in Work Plans 
submitted by the Corps to Congress.
    Alternative Financing.--The Committee directs the Assistant 
Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) to report, within 180 days 
of the date of enactment of this act, on how to calculate the 
total return on Federal investment for projects that use 
alternative financing such as public-private partnerships. The 
report shall identify the viability of using total return on 
Federal investment as a metric for analyzing projects with 
alternative financing.
    Aquatic Plant Control Program.--Of the funding recommended 
for the Aquatic Plant Control Program, $5,000,000 shall be for 
nationwide research and development to address invasive aquatic 
plants. The Committee encourages the Corps to support cost-
shared aquatic plant management programs. The funding 
recommendation includes $6,000,000 for watercraft inspection 
stations, early detection monitoring, and rapid response as 
authorized by section 1178(b) of the WIIN Act. Within this 
amount, the Corps is also directed to undertake control of the 
flowering rush.
    Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal Dispersal Barrier, 
Illinois.--The issue of hydrologic separation should be fully 
studied by the Corps and vetted by the appropriate 
congressional authorizing committees and specifically enacted 
into law. No funds provided in this act may be used for 
construction of hydrologic separation measures.
    Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan [CERP]--Indian 
River Lagoon-South.--The Committee recognizes the importance of 
restoring America's Everglades, and eliminating discharges from 
Lake Okeechobee that help fuel harmful algal blooms in the St. 
Lucie River and Indian River Lagoon. The Committee urges the 
Corps to expedite preparations for design work on the C-23 and 
C-24 South Reservoirs that, along with the C-44 Reservoir, will 
serve as crucial elements of the Indian River Lagoon-South CERP 
project to collect and clean discharges before they enter the 
Lagoon.
    Continuing Authorities Program.--The Committee recommends 
$27,200,000 for the Continuing Authorities Program [CAP], an 
increase of $18,200,000 from the budget request. CAP is a 
useful tool for the Corps to undertake small localized projects 
without being encumbered by the lengthy study and authorization 
phases typical of most Corps projects. The standing CAP 
authorities are: flood control (section 205), emergency 
streambank and shoreline protection (section 14), beach erosion 
control (section 103), mitigation of shore damages (section 
111), navigation projects (section 107), snagging and clearing 
(section 208), aquatic ecosystem restoration (section 206), 
beneficial uses of dredged material (section 204), and project 
modifications for improvement of the environment (section 
1135). The Committee recommends funding eight of the nine 
sections rather than only the four sections proposed in the 
budget request. The Committee does not recommend funding for 
section 208, as these projects can be accommodated under the 
authority of section 205. Within the CAP and to the extent 
already authorized by law, the Corps is encouraged to consider 
projects that enhance coastal and ocean ecosystem resiliency. 
The management of CAP should continue consistent with direction 
provided in previous fiscal years.
    The Committee urges the administration to execute CAP as 
laid out by the Committee and include sufficient funding for 
this program in future budget requests. The Corps shall 
continue the ongoing processes for initiating, suspending, and 
terminating projects. Suspended projects shall not be 
reactivated or funded unless the sponsor reaffirms in writing 
its support for the project and establishes its willingness and 
capability to execute its project responsibilities. The Corps 
shall provide an annual report within 60 days of the end of 
each fiscal year detailing the progress made on the backlog of 
projects. The report shall include the completions and 
terminations as well as progress of ongoing work.
    Dalles Dam.--The Committee is aware of the Corps' legal 
analysis, which finds that a new tribal village can be 
constructed pursuant to section 204 of the Flood Control Act of 
1950, which authorized construction of The Dalles Dam. A 
January 3, 2017 memorandum directed the Corps to create a 
Village Development Plan which would be eligible for 
construction funding upon completion. The Corps is encouraged 
to complete the Village Development Plan in consultation with 
affected Columbia River tribes and the Bureau of Indian 
Affairs. The Committee further urges the Corps to issue 
implementation guidance for section 1178(c) of the WIIN Act.
    Enhanced Options for Sand Acquisition for Beach 
Renourishment Projects.--The Committee urges the Corps to 
provide states with guidance and recommendations to implement 
cost effective measures and planning for sand management.
    Environmental Infrastructure.--The Committee recommends an 
additional $60,000,000 in the Construction account for 
environmental infrastructure. The Corps is encouraged to give 
priority to projects in rural areas, projects with greater 
economic impact, projects in counties or parishes with high 
poverty rates, projects owed past reimbursements, and projects 
that will provide substantial benefits to water quality 
improvement. The Committee encourages the Corps to evaluate 
projects under section 592 of the Water Resources Development 
Act of 1999 and section 5113 of the Water Resources Development 
Act of 2007 and allocate resources made available by Congress 
to meet the needs and projects identified under those sections.
    Levee Safety Program.--The Committee is concerned that the 
Corps has not taken steps to implement the levee safety 
initiatives required under WRRDA 2014. The Committee directs 
the Corps, after consulting with the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency, to develop a plan of action within 90 days 
of the date of enactment of this act that includes tangible 
milestones for how the Corps will meet the requirements under 
Public Law 113-121, section 3016.
    McCook and Thornton Reservoirs, Illinois.--The Committee is 
again disappointed by the Corps' failure to provide funding for 
McCook Reservoir in the budget and deeply concerned by the 
Corps' decision to reject congressional intent and its own 
history on this project. Congressional intent has been clear 
since its authorization in 1988, and in subsequent 
modification. Congress recently reiterated its support for the 
project when it ordered the Corps to expedite the project's 
completion in the WIIN Act. The project is 91 percent complete, 
and the Committee strongly urges the Corps to complete the 
project. The McCook Reservoir was authorized for flood risk 
management and constructed to help alleviate flooding problems 
in the Metropolitan area of Chicago, Illinois.
    Metro East Saint Louis, Illinois.--The Committee is 
disappointed by the lack of funding provided to the Metro East 
levee system. This levee rehabilitation project will help 
protect communities in the Metro East region from rising waters 
on the Mississippi River. The Committee urges the Corps to 
include funding for the Metro East levee system in the Corps' 
Fiscal Year 2018 Work Plan.
    Mid-Chesapeake Bay Island.--The Committee understands that 
the Corps must complete and approve its Baltimore Harbor and 
Channels Dredged Material Management Plan Update prior to 
budgeting for the Mid-Chesapeake Bay Island Project (James and 
Barren Islands). When the Dredged Material Management Plan is 
approved, the Committee encourages the Corps to provide funding 
for PED for this project through the annual budget process or 
from undesignated funds.
    Monitoring and Adaptive Management.--The Committee commends 
the Corps for completion of and progress on a number of large 
scale ecosystem restoration projects, which have produced 
significant wetland and habitat restoration, beneficial reuse 
of dredged material, and additional public access. Many of 
these restoration projects provide multiple benefits to 
wildlife and surrounding communities, yet are not adequately 
studied for quantifiable benefits. Additionally, where the 
Corps performs mitigation measures, success rates are not 
adequately monitored to ensure replication and use of best 
practices. The Committee encourages the Corps to expand 
monitoring and adaptive management efforts in order to better 
measure the return on investment of large scale ecosystem 
restoration projects and mitigation project performance.
    Mud Mountain Dam.--The Committee commends the Corps for 
initiating construction to support the October 2014 Mud 
Mountain Biological Opinion (BiOp) and mitigate the impact of 
the ongoing operation of Mud Mountain Dam on species listed 
under the Endangered Species Act [ESA] by replacing the barrier 
structure and building a new fish passage facility. The 
Committee encourages the Corps to uphold the agency's ESA and 
tribal treaty responsibilities by requesting sufficient funding 
in future budgets to implement the BiOp requirements and 
complete construction by 2020.
    Murrieta Creek California.--The Committee is aware that the 
Corps has been working on a Limited Reevaluation Report [LRR] 
to detail a re-scoped project for a more cost-effective 
solution while it proceeds with construction. The Committee 
urges the Corps to complete and approve the LRR and move into 
the next phase of construction.
    Oyster Restoration.--The Committee supports the Chesapeake 
Bay Oyster Restoration Project and encourages the Corps to 
provide sufficient funding in future budget submissions or the 
fiscal year 2018 work plan.
    Prioritization of the Corps Projects in Drought Stricken 
Areas.--The Committee urges the Corps to prioritize any 
authorized projects that would alleviate water supply issues in 
areas that have been afflicted by severe droughts in the last 3 
fiscal years, to include projects focused on the treatment of 
brackish water.
    Puget Sound.--The Committee encourages the Corps to proceed 
with the tiered implementation strategy using all existing 
authorities as outlined in the Puget Sound Nearshore Ecosystem 
Restoration Project Feasibility Study, Completion Strategy 
Guidance dated June 2015. The Corps is directed to recognize 
the Puget Sound Nearshore Study as the feasibility component 
for the purposes of section 544 of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 2000. The Committee notes the WIIN Act 
authorized construction of the Puget Sound Nearshore Ecosystem 
Restoration Project, and the Committee encourages the Corps to 
initiate PED.
    South San Francisco Bay Shoreline.--The Committee was 
deeply disappointed by the lack of a new construction start in 
the fiscal year 2018 budget for the first phase of the South 
San Francisco Bay Shoreline Project or funding for the 
feasibility study for the next phase of the project. This 
project provides critical flood protection to communities, 
businesses, and municipal structures in Santa Clara County, 
California. In addition, this project will restore 
approximately 2,900 acres of former salt production ponds to 
tidal marsh habitat and improve recreational access to 
surrounding communities. The Committee strongly urges the Corps 
to prioritize progress on this project.
    South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Comprehensive Federal-
State Cost-Share Transparency.--The Committee recognizes the 
importance of the 50/50 partnership between the State of 
Florida and the Federal Government in efforts to restore 
America's Everglades. Key to this partnership is an accurate 
and transparent accounting of all spending for all South 
Florida Ecosystem Restoration [SFER] projects, including CERP 
projects, associated with the Federal-State cost-share. The 
Committee directs the Corps to make publicly available a 
comprehensive snapshot of all SFER cost-share accounting down 
to the project level for fiscal year 2018 by September 30, 
2018.
    Additional Funding for Ongoing Work.--The Committee 
recommendation includes $648,150,000 in additional funds for 
Construction above the budget request. The Corps shall allocate 
these additional funds in accordance with the direction in the 
front matter under the heading ``Additional Funding''. Of the 
additional funds provided in this account for flood and storm 
damage reduction, flood control, and environmental restoration 
or compliance, the Corps shall allocate not less than 
$15,400,000 for hurricane and storm damage risk reduction and 
environmental restoration projects as authorized in section 
7002 of Public Law 113-121 with both structural and 
nonstructural project elements. Of the additional funds 
recommended in this account for flood and storm damage 
reduction and flood control, the Corps shall allocate not less 
than $20,000,000 to continue construction of projects which 
principally include improvements to rainfall drainage systems 
that address flood damages. Of the additional funds recommended 
in this account for flood and storm damage reduction, 
navigation, and other authorized project purposes (excluding 
environmental infrastructure), the Corps shall allocate not 
less than $15,000,000 to authorized reimbursements for projects 
with executed project partnership agreements and that have 
completed construction or where non-Federal sponsors intend to 
use the funds for additional water resource development 
activities. Of the additional funds recommended in this account 
for CAP Flood Control Projects (section 205), the Corps is 
encouraged to give priority to projects that have been impacted 
by flood events in 2017, which resulted in legal action against 
the local sponsor. Of the additional funds recommended in this 
account for CAP Emergency Streambank and Shoreline Protection 
(section 14), the Corps shall allocate not less than $600,000 
to complete ongoing feasibility studies and initiate 
construction on projects that address erosion problems 
jeopardizing box culvert crossings on public roadways. 
Additionally, the Corps shall comply with the following 
direction in allocating funds recommended for Construction:
  --For Flood Risk Management and Flood Control projects, the 
        Corps is strongly urged to prioritize funding for dam 
        safety projects where progression toward failure is 
        confirmed to be taking place under normal operations, 
        and the dam is almost certain to fail under normal 
        operations within a few years without intervention.
  --Additional considerations include whether the project is 
        positioned to permit award of funding for significant 
        items of construction, achieve necessary milestones, or 
        otherwise realize notable construction progress in 
        fiscal year 2018; and the project sponsor expended 
        funds under an existing project partnership agreement 
        for creditable work, including acquisition of rights-
        of-way.
  --None of these funds shall be used for CAP projects.
  --Funding may be for all categories including periodic beach 
        renourishments and reimbursements.
  --Funding may be made available to projects for which the 
        sponsor is awaiting reimbursement from the Federal 
        Government to continue with construction of remaining 
        authorized project features.

    Beneficial Use of Dredged Materials.--The Committee directs 
the Corps to complete its Implementation Guidance for the 
Beneficial Use of Dredged Material program authorized in 
section 1122 of the WIIN Act and move into timely 
implementation, including selection of pilot projects. The 
Committee supports the Corps' efforts to proceed with 
beneficial use as a regular part of its dredging activities in 
order to achieve efficiencies and cost reductions.
    Coastal Inlets Research Program.--Additional funding is 
recommended in the Coastal Inlets Research Program for the 
Corps to work with the National Ocean and Atmospheric 
Administration's National Water Center on protecting the 
Nation's water resources.
    Dam Optimization.--The Corps is urged not to carry out any 
reservoir reoperation or reallocation for authorized purposes 
at any Corps facilities with funds from any non-Federal entity 
other than the non-Federal sponsor until the Corps has 
completed all public outreach and coordination and submitted to 
the relevant authorizing and appropriations Committees and the 
congressional delegation representing such facility, a detailed 
analysis of the change in operations of the reservoir, and 
specific information on whether the activities would alter 
availability of water for existing authorized purposes at such 
facility, as well as compensation for lost water that would be 
necessary to make users whole if such activities were carried 
out.
    Donor Ports and Energy Transfer Ports.--The additional 
funding recommended in this account for donor and energy 
transfer ports shall be allocated in accordance with 33 U.S.C. 
2238c.
    Isle of Shoals North and Cape Arundel Dredged Material 
Placement Site.--The Cape Arundel Disposal Site in the State of 
Maine selected by the Department of the Army as an alternative 
dredged material disposal site under section 103(b) of the 
Marine Protection Research and Sanctuaries Act of 1972, shall 
remain open until April 15, 2024, until the remaining disposal 
capacity of the site has been utilized, or until final 
designation of an Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site for 
southern Maine under section 102(c) of the Marine Protection 
Research and Sanctuaries Act of 1972, whichever first occurs, 
provided that the site conditions remain suitable for such 
purpose and that the site may not be used for disposal of more 
than 80,000 cubic yards from any single dredging project.
    Kennebec River Federal Navigation Channel.--The Committee 
is concerned that the Kennebec River Federal Navigation Channel 
required emergency dredging in 2017 to allow the safe passage 
of a newly constructed Navy guided missile destroyer to the 
Atlantic Ocean. The Committee believes the development of a 
long-term, resourced plan for the periodic sounding and 
dredging of the Kennebec River is necessary to prevent 
potential future impacts to the fleet and national security. 
Accordingly, the Committee directs the Assistant Secretary of 
the Army (Civil Works), in consultation with the Navy, to 
submit a report within 270 days after the date of enactment of 
this act to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress, proposing a long-term plan for regular maintenance 
dredging of the Kennebec River. This report shall include 
detailed information on funding requirements and sources, as 
well as any legislative proposals for new authorities necessary 
to implement the proposed plan.
    Medium Size Ports.--The Committee emphasizes the importance 
of ensuring the continued development and maintenance of our 
country's medium size ports. The Committee urges the Corps to 
consider projects proposed at medium size ports relative to the 
needs and potential impact of their surrounding communities in 
the fiscal year 2018 Work Plan.
    Monitoring of Completed Navigation Projects.--The Committee 
supports the Corps' efforts to significantly improve the 
safety, efficiency, reliability and cost of performing 
inspections of critical and aging infrastructure. To accelerate 
the delivery and deployment of innovative technologies for 
infrastructure inspection on the national level, the Committee 
urges the Corps to continue to prioritize funding for the 
validation of proven innovative practices and technologies.
    Of the funding provided, $3,700,000 shall be for the 
Structural Health Monitoring Program to facilitate research and 
maximize operations, efficiency, and to protect asset life 
through catastrophic failure mitigation.
    The Committee is concerned that a reduction in or 
elimination of navigational lock operations on the Nation's 
inland waterways is having a negative impact on river 
ecosystems, particularly the ability of a number of endangered, 
threatened and game fish species to migrate through waterways, 
particularly during critical spawning periods. The Committee is 
aware of preliminary research that indicates reduced lock 
operations on certain Corps designated low-use waterways is 
directly impacting migration, and that there are effective 
means to mitigate the impacts. The Committee believes 
maximizing the ability of fish to use these locks to move past 
the dams has the potential to restore natural and historic 
long-distance river migrations that may well be critical to 
species survival. In fiscal year 2017, Congress provided 
funding to continue preliminary research on the impact of 
reduced lock operations on riverine fish. The Committee 
understands the research underway is proving valuable and, 
within available funds for ongoing work, recommends $2,000,000 
for the Corps to continue this research. The goal of the 
continued funding is to support the continuing research and, 
where appropriate, expand the work to look at ecosystem level 
impacts and additional waterways, lock structures, lock 
operation methods, and fish species that will more fully inform 
Corps operations.
    Section 408 Reviews.--The Committee directs the Corps to 
complete section 408 reviews as expeditiously as possible, in a 
transparent manner, and in a reasonable timeframe. In 
recognition of the current, significant backlog in this program 
and the lag in review times, the Committee recommends 
$8,500,000, the same as the budget request and $5,200,000 above 
fiscal year 2017 enacted levels for section 408 reviews. Not 
later than 90 days after the date of enactment of this act, the 
Corps shall submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations 
of both Houses of Congress on the number of non-Federal 
projects in each Corps district that requested approval to 
alter existing Civil Works projects in fiscal years 2016 and 
2017, and the average review time for such requests for each 
District.
    The Committee is concerned that the Corps exhausted its 
fiscal year 2017 funds used to review section 408 packages, but 
the administration failed to identify additional funds for this 
purpose in its fiscal year 2017 work plan. As a result, the 
Corps halted section 408 reviews, leaving several projects in 
limbo at least until the start of fiscal year 2018. The Corps 
shall expedite the review of section 408 submissions wherever 
possible, including using the WRDA 2000 section 214 process 
where available. The Committee also directs the Corps to 
consider policies that would free up Corps resources to review 
section 408 submissions more expeditiously in the future, such 
as accepting certifications from private engineers and land 
surveyors, similar to processes used by the Federal Highway 
Administration, and to approve section 408 requests at the 
division level rather than the headquarters level wherever 
possible.
    Lower Yellowstone Intake Project.--The Committee is 
concerned regarding continued delays in resolving issues 
surrounding the Lower Yellowstone Intake Project. The Committee 
strongly encourages the Corps and Bureau of Reclamation to 
assure the community and stakeholders of the agencies' 
continued support for resolving issues impacting local 
agriculture producers and fisheries. Further, the Committee 
directs the Corps and Bureau of Reclamation to refrain from 
reallocating funding from the proposed fish passage project 
until judicial challenges to the project are resolved.
    Water Operations Technical Support.--Funding in addition to 
the budget request is recommended to continue research into 
atmospheric rivers first funded in fiscal year 2015.
    WRRDA Section 4001.--Congress has made clear its intent 
that the Susquehanna, Delaware, and Potomac River Basin 
Commissions be supported, and the Corps is encouraged to budget 
accordingly.
    WRRDA Section 6002.--The Committee supports the Corps' 
performing a review of its inventory, in accordance with 
section 6002 of the WRRDA 2014, not later than 1 year after the 
date of enactment of this act.
    Additional Funding for Ongoing Work.--The Committee cannot 
support a level of funding that does not fund operation and 
maintenance of our Nation's aging infrastructure sufficiently 
to ensure continued competitiveness in a global marketplace. 
Federal navigation channels maintained at only a fraction of 
authorized dimensions and navigation locks and hydropower 
facilities well beyond their design life result in economic 
inefficiencies and risk infrastructure failure, which can cause 
substantial economic losses. The Committee is disappointed the 
fiscal year 2018 budget request does not adequately fund 
operation and maintenance of our Nation's ports. WRRDA 2014, as 
amended by the WIIN Act, included an annual appropriation 
target for use of the HMTF. Despite providing a budget request 
that was near the fiscal year 2017 enacted levels, the 
administration failed to include projects in the budget request 
that are HMTF reimbursable commensurate with the targets 
established by law. Additional funding is recommended for 
dredging activities to restore navigation channels as 
determined by river stages.
    The Committee is concerned that the administration's 
criteria for navigation maintenance disadvantage small, remote, 
or subsistence harbors and waterways from competing for scarce 
navigation maintenance funds. Accordingly, the Committee 
directs the Corps to revise the criteria used for determining 
which navigation maintenance projects are funded to develop a 
reasonable and equitable allocation under the Operation and 
Maintenance account. The Committee supports including criteria 
to evaluate economic impact that these projects provide to 
local and regional economies.
    The Committee recommendation includes additional funds for 
projects and activities to enhance the Nation's economic growth 
and international competitiveness. When allocating the 
additional funding recommended in this account, the Corps shall 
consider giving priority to the following:
  --ability to complete ongoing work maintaining authorized 
        depths and widths of harbors and shipping channels 
        (including small, remote, or subsistence harbors), 
        including where contaminated sediments are present;
  --ability to address critical maintenance backlog;
  --presence of the U.S. Coast Guard;
  --extent to which the work will enhance national, regional, 
        or local economic development;
  --extent to which the work will promote job growth or 
        international competitiveness;
  --number of jobs created directly by the funded activity;
  --ability to obligate the funds allocated within the calendar 
        year;
  --ability to complete the project, separable element, project 
        phase, or useful increment of work within the funds 
        allocated;
  --for harbor maintenance activities:
    --total tonnage handled,
    --total exports,
    --total imports,
    --dollar value of cargo handled,
    --energy infrastructure and national security needs served,
    --designation as strategic seaports,
    --lack of alternative means of freight movement, and
    --savings over alternative means of freight movement.
    For deep-draft harbor and channel maintenance, the Corps 
shall give priority to funding strategic commercial seaports, 
as designated by the Department of Defense, in the fiscal year 
2018 work plan.

                           REGULATORY PROGRAM

Appropriations, 2017....................................    $200,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................     200,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     200,000,000

    The Committee recommends $200,000,000 for the Regulatory 
Program, the same as the budget request.
    Aquaculture Activities.--The Committee is encouraged by the 
progress the Corps has made to process permit requests from 
shellfish growers in the State of Washington to initiate or 
expand aquaculture activities. The Committee is aware that the 
Corps initiated a process through which permits recently issued 
under the 2012 Nationwide Permit 48 can be verified under the 
2017 Nationwide Permit 48 that went into effect on March 19, 
2017. The Corps is directed to expeditiously process these 
requests using the final Biological Opinion and in accordance 
with the 2017 Nationwide Permit 48. The Corps is encouraged to 
communicate directly with the regulated industry and other 
interested stakeholders to ensure all have clarity on 
permitting requirements.

            FORMERLY UTILIZED SITES REMEDIAL ACTION PROGRAM

Appropriations, 2017....................................    $112,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................     118,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     117,000,000

    The Committee recommends $117,000,000 for the Formerly 
Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program, $1,000,000 below the 
budget request.

                 FLOOD CONTROL AND COASTAL EMERGENCIES

Appropriations, 2017....................................     $32,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................      35,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      21,904,000

    The Committee recommends $21,904,000 for Flood Control and 
Coastal Emergencies a decrease of $13,096,000 from the budget 
request. The Corps is directed to use $10,096,000 from prior 
year balances.

                                EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2017....................................    $181,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................     185,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     185,000,000

    The Committee recommends $185,000,000 for Expenses, the 
same as the budget request. This appropriation finances the 
expenses for the Office of the Chief of Engineers, the Division 
Offices, and certain research and statistical functions of the 
Corps. No funding is recommended for creation of an Office of 
Congressional Affairs.

     OFFICE OF THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF THE ARMY FOR CIVIL WORKS

Appropriations, 2017....................................      $4,764,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................       5,000,000
Committee recommendation................................       4,406,000

    The Committee recommends $4,406,000 for the Office of the 
Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works), $594,000 below 
the budget request.
    The Committee counts on a timely and accessible executive 
branch in the course of fulfilling its constitutional role in 
the appropriations process. The requesting and receiving of 
basic, factual information is vital to maintain a transparent 
and open governing process. The Committee recognizes that some 
discussions internal to the executive branch are pre-decisional 
in nature and, therefore, not subject to disclosure. However, 
the access to facts, figures, and statistics that inform these 
decisions are not subject to the same sensitivity and are 
critical to the budget process. The administration needs to do 
more to ensure timely and complete responses to these 
inquiries.

                                TITLE II

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

                          CENTRAL UTAH PROJECT

                CENTRAL UTAH PROJECT COMPLETION ACCOUNT

Appropriations, 2017....................................     $10,500,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................       8,983,000
Committee recommendation................................      10,500,000

    The Committee recommends $10,500,000 for the Central Utah 
Project Completion Account, which includes $8,152,000 for 
Central Utah Project construction, $898,000 for transfer to the 
Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Account for use by 
the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission, 
$1,450,000 for necessary expenses of the Secretary of the 
Interior, and up to $1,500,000 for the Commission's 
administrative expenses. This program allows the Department of 
the Interior to develop water supply facilities that will 
continue to sustain economic growth and an enhanced quality of 
life in the western States, the fastest growing region in the 
United States. The Committee remains committed to completing 
the Central Utah Project, which would enable the project to 
initiate repayment to the Federal Government.

                         Bureau of Reclamation

                       OVERVIEW OF RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $1,287,725,000 for the Bureau of 
Reclamation [Reclamation], an increase of $190,332,000 from the 
budget request. The Committee recommendation sets priorities by 
supporting our Nation's water infrastructure.

                              INTRODUCTION

    In addition to the traditional missions of bringing water 
and power to the West, Reclamation continues to develop 
programs, initiatives, and activities that will help meet new 
water needs and balance the multitude of competing uses of 
water in the West. Reclamation is the largest wholesaler of 
water in the country, operating 348 reservoirs with a total 
storage capacity of 245 million acre-feet. Reclamation projects 
deliver 10 trillion gallons of water to more than 31 million 
people each year, and provide 1 out of 5 western farmers with 
irrigation water for 10 million acres of farmland that produce 
60 percent of the Nation's vegetables and 25 percent of its 
fruits and nuts. Reclamation manages, with partners, 289 
recreation sites that have 90 million visits annually.

                       FISCAL YEAR 2018 WORK PLAN

    The Committee has recommended funding above the budget 
request for Water and Related Resources. Reclamation is 
directed to submit a work plan, not later than 60 days after 
the date of enactment of this act, to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress proposing its 
allocation of these additional funds. Reclamation is directed 
not to obligate any funding above the budget request for 
studies or projects until the Committees have approved the work 
plan for fiscal year 2018. The work plan shall be consistent 
with the following general guidance:
  --None of the funds may be used for any item for which the 
        Committee has specifically denied funding.
  --The additional funds are provided for ongoing studies or 
        projects that were either not included in the budget 
        request or for which the budget request was inadequate.
  --Funding associated with a category may be allocated to 
        eligible studies or projects within that category.
  --Reclamation may not withhold funding from a study or 
        project because it is inconsistent with administration 
        policy. The Committee notes that these funds are in 
        excess of the administration's budget request, and that 
        administration budget metrics should not disqualify a 
        study or project from being funded.

                             REPROGRAMMING

    The Committee is retaining the reprogramming legislation 
provided in the Energy and Water Development and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017.

                           DROUGHT RESILIENCY

    The Committee has invested approximately $300,000,000 over 
the past 3 years in drought and water supply-related 
activities. The Committee remains intently focused on the need 
for substantially increased investment in improving drought 
resiliency as well as in finding opportunities for agencies to 
combine water supply benefits with other mission priorities. In 
the fiscal year 2017 Energy and Water Appropriations bill, the 
Committee began the transition from mitigating an ongoing 
drought in the West to preparing for the next one. The 
Committee continues that approach in this year's bill by 
recommending another $98,000,000 for the drought resiliency 
programs authorized in the WIIN Act.
    The Committee directs Reclamation to continue working with 
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Marine 
Fisheries Service, and relevant state agencies to undertake 
comprehensive, around the clock, real-time monitoring of water 
supply conditions and their impact on endangered species during 
critical periods in the winter and spring.
    The Committee believes that the only answer to these 
chronic droughts is a combination of additional storage, 
substantial investments in desalination and recycling, improved 
conveyance, and increased efficiencies in the uses of water 
both for agriculture and potable purposes. As the West has 
consistently been the fastest growing part of the country, it 
is incumbent on Reclamation to lead the way in increasing the 
water that is available from year to year and to incentivize 
more efficient use of the water that is available.

                   CONGRESSIONALLY DIRECTED SPENDING

    The Committee did not accept or include congressionally 
directed spending, as defined in section 5(a) of rule XLIV of 
the Standing Rules of the Senate. However, the Committee has 
recommended additional programmatic funds above the budget 
request for the Water and Related Resources account. In some 
cases, these additional funds have been included within defined 
categories, as in prior years, and are described in more detail 
in their respective sections below.

                      WATER AND RELATED RESOURCES

Appropriations, 2017....................................  $1,155,894,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................     960,017,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,150,349,000

    The Committee recommends $1,150,349,000 for Water and 
Related Resources, an increase of $190,332,000 above the budget 
request.

                              INTRODUCTION

    The Water and Related Resources account supports the 
development, management, and restoration of water and related 
natural resources in the 17 western States. The account 
includes funds for operating and maintaining existing 
facilities to obtain the greatest overall level of benefits, to 
protect public safety, and to conduct studies on ways to 
improve the use of water and related natural resources. Work 
will be done in partnership and cooperation with non-Federal 
entities and other Federal agencies.
    The Committee has recommended increased funding in the 
Water and Related Resources account on a number of line items 
to better allow Reclamation to address the immediate impacts of 
the drought.

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

    Indian Water Settlements.--The Committee notes that funding 
is recommended for Indian water rights settlements, which meet 
trust and treaty obligations to tribes and resolve significant 
tribal water-related claims against the Federal government. In 
December 2016, Congress authorized a number of important Indian 
water settlements as part of the WIIN Act, including the 
Blackfeet Water Rights Settlement Act. To meet the Blackfeet 
settlement's enforcement date of January 21, 2025, significant 
additional funding will be required after fiscal year 2018. The 
Committee therefore encourages Reclamation to budget 
accordingly for Indian water rights settlements in its budget 
request for fiscal year 2019.
    San Joaquin River Restoration Program.--The Committee is 
deeply concerned by the lack of tangible progress in river 
channel reconstruction despite Federal expenditures of 
$172,000,000 through September 30, 2016, and an anticipated 
additional $390,000,000 to $700,000,000 necessary to complete 
the program. The Committee directs Reclamation to work with the 
settling parties and the Exchange Contractors to develop a plan 
to successfully implement the program, which shall identify 
funding sources to match projected program expenditures; ensure 
that the program is on track to achieve goals that are 
technically, scientifically, and financially achievable; 
reevaluate the program's 2025 reopener date, given extensive 
delays in river project implementation; and improve the 
program's relationship with third parties, while working within 
projected budgets and timelines. The Committee directs 
Reclamation to achieve substantial progress toward developing 
the plan by November 15, 2017, and to brief the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on the progress 
achieved by that date.
    Salton Sea.--Pursuant to recent agreements between the 
Department of the Interior and the State of California, the 
Committee encourages the Department to prioritize 
implementation of the Salton Sea Memorandum of Understanding 
[MOU]. The Committee urges the Department to include specific 
funding requests for implementation of the MOU in future budget 
submissions and directs the Department to provide semiannual 
briefings to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress regarding Federal efforts to implement the MOU and 
other Salton Sea mitigation efforts.
    Scoggins Dam, Tualatin Project, Oregon.--The Committee 
supports the administration's budget request for 
preconstruction activities at Scoggins Dam under the Safety of 
Dams program. Consistent with the Tualatin Project Water Supply 
Feasibility Study authorized in Public Law 108-137 and 
statutory authority granted by Public Law 114-113 allowing for 
additional benefits to be conducted concurrently with dam 
safety improvements, the Committee directs Reclamation to 
evaluate alternatives, including new or supplementary works, 
provided that safety remains the paramount consideration, to 
address dam safety modifications and increased storage 
capacity. Considering the high risk associated with Scoggins 
Dam, the Committee urges Reclamation to work with local 
stakeholders and repayment contractors to prioritize this joint 
project including feasibility and environmental review of the 
preferred alternative in fiscal year 2018. The Committee 
understands that a replacement structure downstream could 
significantly reduce project costs for both the Federal 
Government and local stakeholders. Reclamation may accept 
contributed funds from non-Federal contractors to expedite 
completion of any level of review.
    Rural Water Projects.--Voluntary funding in excess of 
legally required cost shares for rural water projects is 
acceptable but shall not be used by Reclamation as a criterion 
for allocating additional funding recommended by the Committee 
or for budgeting in future years.
    WaterSMART Program.--The Committee encourages Reclamation 
to prioritize eligible water conservation projects that will 
provide water supplies to meet the needs of threatened and 
endangered species.
    Research and Development: Desalination and Water 
Purification Program.--Of the funding recommended for this 
program, $6,000,000 shall be for desalination projects as 
authorized in section 4009(a) of Public Law 114-322.
    Research and Development, Science and Technology Program.--
The Committee is aware that the Reclamation Science and 
Technology Office has been investing in efforts under the Open 
Water Data Initiative to integrate currently fragmented water 
supply data from several Federal agencies into a connected, 
national water data framework. Furthermore, the Committee 
understands that the Science and Technology Office has a future 
goal to develop web-based decision support tools. The Committee 
urges Reclamation to expedite the development and testing of a 
web-based Water Supply Decision Support System that will help 
Federal, State, municipal, Tribal and private water managers 
and users make better water-use decisions to support water 
conservation and drought resilience in the western States. Such 
a system will allow a diverse group of water managers and users 
to better leverage the Federal Government's investment in 
producing water supply data on river levels, snow pack, 
weather, and climate.
    WaterSMART Program: Title XVI Water Reclamation & Reuse 
Program.--Of the funding recommended for this program, 
$10,000,000 shall be for water recycling and reuse projects as 
authorized in section 4009(c) of Public Law 114-322.
    Additional Funding for Water and Related Resources Work.--
The Committee recommendation includes an additional 
$190,332,000 above the budget request for Water and Related 
Resources studies, projects, and activities. Priority in 
allocating these funds should be given to advance and complete 
ongoing work; improve water supply reliability; improve water 
deliveries; enhance national, regional, or local economic 
development; promote job growth; advance Tribal and nontribal 
water settlement studies and activities; or address critical 
backlog maintenance and rehabilitation activities. Funding 
recommended under the heading Additional Funding for Ongoing 
Work may be utilized for ongoing work, including pre-
construction activities, on projects which provide new or 
existing water supplies through additional infrastructure. 
Reclamation shall give priority in allocating funds to ongoing 
work on authorized projects for which environmental compliance 
has been completed. Reclamation is encouraged to allocate 
additional funding for aquifer recharging efforts to address 
the ongoing backlog of related projects. Of the funds 
recommended under the heading ``Water Conservation and 
Delivery'', $5,000,000 is allocated to fund Colorado River 
water conservation, including the Pilot System Conservation 
Program as authorized in section 206 of Energy and Water 
Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2015. Of 
the additional funding recommended under the heading ``Water 
Conservation and Delivery'', $67,000,000 shall be for water 
storage projects as authorized in section 4007 of Public Law 
114-322. Of the additional funding recommended under the 
heading ``Environmental Restoration or Compliance'', 
$15,000,000 shall be for activities authorized under sections 
4001 and 4010 of Public Law 114-322 or as set forth in Federal-
State plans for restoring threatened and endangered fish 
species affected by the operation of Reclamation's water 
projects.
    The Committee is concerned that Reclamation's criteria for 
allocating funding have not adequately accounted for projects 
that would directly benefit military base operations and 
national security facilities in the past. The Committee directs 
the Department of the Interior to consult with the Department 
of Defense to develop a plan to adequately allocate Water and 
Related Resources funding that directly benefits military base 
operations and national security facilities.
    Reclamation is encouraged to prioritize funding to help 
irrigation districts with junior water rights to plan and 
develop water conservation plans to comply with ESA 
requirements.
    Buried Metallic Water Pipe.--Reclamation shall continue 
following its temporary design guidance.

                CENTRAL VALLEY PROJECT RESTORATION FUND

Appropriations, 2017....................................     $55,606,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................      41,376,000
Committee recommendation................................      41,376,000

    The Committee recommends $41,376,000 for the Central Valley 
Project Restoration Fund, the same as the budget request. This 
appropriation is fully offset by a scorekeeping adjustment from 
revenues.
    The Central Valley Project Restoration Fund was authorized 
in the Central Valley Project Improvement Act, title 34 of 
Public Law 102-575. This fund uses revenues from payments by 
project beneficiaries and donations for habitat restoration, 
improvement and acquisition, and other fish and wildlife 
restoration activities in the Central Valley project area of 
California. Payments from project beneficiaries include several 
required by the act (Friant Division surcharges, higher charges 
on water transferred to non-Central Valley Project users, and 
tiered water prices) and, to the extent required in 
appropriations acts, additional annual mitigation and 
restoration payments.

                    CALIFORNIA BAY-DELTA RESTORATION

Appropriations, 2017....................................     $36,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................      37,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      37,000,000

    The Committee recommends $37,000,000 for California Bay-
Delta Restoration, the same as the budget request.
    This account funds activities that are consistent with the 
CALFED Bay-Delta Program, a collaborative effort involving 18 
State and Federal agencies and representatives of California's 
urban, agricultural, and environmental communities. The goals 
of the program are to improve fish and wildlife habitat, water 
supply reliability, and water quality in the San Francisco Bay-
San Joaquin River Delta, the principle hub of California's 
water distribution system.

                       POLICY AND ADMINISTRATION

Appropriations, 2017....................................     $59,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................      59,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      59,000,000

    The Committee recommends $59,000,000 for Policy and 
Administration, the same as the budget request.
    This account funds the executive direction and management 
of all Reclamation activities, as performed by the 
Commissioner's offices in Washington, DC; Denver, Colorado; and 
five regional offices. The Denver office and regional offices 
charge individual projects or activities for direct beneficial 
services and related administrative and technical costs. These 
charges are covered under other appropriations.

                               TITLE III

                          DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

                       Overview of Recommendation

    The Committee recommends $31,967,986,000 for the Department 
of Energy, an increase of $3,587,029,000 above the budget 
request. The recommendation includes recessions of $510,360,000 
of unobligated prior year balances, resulting in a net 
appropriation of $31,457,626,000.
    The Committee recommendation sets priorities by supporting 
the Office of Science and ARPA-E, leading the world in 
scientific computing, addressing the Federal Government's 
responsibility for environmental cleanup and disposal of used 
nuclear fuel, keeping large construction projects on time and 
on budget, effectively maintaining our nuclear weapons 
stockpile, and supporting our nuclear Navy.

                              Introduction

    The mission of the Department of Energy [Department] is to 
ensure America's security and prosperity by addressing its 
energy, environmental, and nuclear challenges through 
transformative science and technology solutions. To accomplish 
this mission, the Secretary of Energy [Secretary] relies on a 
world-class network of national laboratories, private industry, 
universities, States, and Federal agencies, which allows our 
brightest minds to solve our Nation's most important 
challenges.
    The Committee's recommendation for the Department includes 
funding in both defense and non-defense budget categories. 
Defense funding is recommended for atomic energy defense 
activities, including the National Nuclear Security 
Administration, which manages our Nation's stockpile of nuclear 
weapons, prevents proliferation of dangerous nuclear materials, 
and supports the Navy's nuclear fleet; defense environmental 
cleanup to remediate the former nuclear weapons complex; and 
safeguards and security for Idaho National Laboratory. Non-
defense funding is recommended for the Department's energy 
research and development programs (including nuclear, fossil, 
and renewable energy, energy efficiency, grid modernization and 
resiliency, and the Office of Science), power marketing 
administrations, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and 
administrative expenses.

                        Reprogramming Guidelines

    The Committee's recommendation includes control points to 
ensure that the Secretary spends taxpayer funds in accordance 
with congressional direction. The Committee's recommendation 
also includes reprogramming guidelines to allow the Secretary 
to request permission from the Committee for certain 
expenditures, as defined below, which would not otherwise be 
permissible. The Secretary's execution of appropriated funds 
shall be fully consistent with the direction provided under 
this heading and in section 301 of the bill, unless the 
Committee includes separate guidelines for specific actions in 
the bill or report.
    Prior to obligating any funds for an action defined below 
as a reprogramming, the Secretary shall notify and obtain 
approval of the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress. The Secretary shall submit a detailed reprogramming 
request in accordance with section 301 of the bill, which 
shall, at a minimum, justify the deviation from prior 
congressional direction and describe the proposed funding 
adjustments with specificity. The Secretary shall not, pending 
approval from the Committee, obligate any funds for the action 
described in the reprogramming proposal.
    The Secretary is also directed to inform the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress promptly and fully 
when a change in program execution and funding is required 
during the fiscal year.
    Definition.--A reprogramming includes:
  --the reallocation of funds from one activity to another 
        within an appropriation;
  --any significant departure from a program, project, 
        activity, or organization described in the agency's 
        budget justification as presented to and approved by 
        Congress;
  --for construction projects, the reallocation of funds from 
        one construction project identified in the agency's 
        budget justification to another project or a 
        significant change in the scope of an approved project;
  --adoption of any reorganization proposal which includes 
        moving prior appropriations between appropriations 
        accounts; and
  --any reallocation of new or prior year budget authority, or 
        prior year deobligations.

                        Crosscutting Initiatives

    The recommendation supports several crosscutting 
initiatives funded in prior years that reach outside of 
individual program offices to draw on the diverse disciplines 
within the agency as a whole. These initiatives, which address 
the Energy-Water Nexus; grid modernization; subsurface science, 
technology and engineering research, development, and 
deployment; cybersecurity; and advanced materials, have allowed 
for a more comprehensive review of complex issues.
    Grid Modernization.--The Department is directed to continue 
to support ongoing work between the national laboratories, 
industry, and universities to improve grid reliability and 
resiliency. Given that much of the Nation's grid is privately 
owned, there are significant challenges to modernizing the 
grid, which make it difficult to develop, test, and deploy new 
technologies. To address these challenges, Congress has 
provided funding for the Grid Modernization Initiative [GMI] 
over the past 2 fiscal years. The budget request does not 
address the GMI comprehensively even though in January 2016, 
the Department announced up to $220,000,000 for the GMI over 3 
years, subject to appropriations from Congress. Within the GMI, 
the Committee supports the Grid Modernization Laboratory 
Consortium's [GMLC] leadership of a comprehensive, 
multidisciplinary research and development program managed 
through a consortium of the national laboratories, leveraging 
national laboratory assets and partnering with non-Federal 
entities. The Committee is pleased that the Department has 
recently undertaken peer review processes to evaluate the 
GMLC's progress. The Committee supports the strategic goals of 
the Grid Modernization Multi-Year Program Plan [MYPP], which 
reflects a 5-year integrated strategy across the Department to 
guide investment and leverage the expertise of our national 
laboratories, while working with industry and States. The 
Committee directs the Department to continue implementation of 
the MYPP, as in previous years.
    The Committee recognizes the opportunities and challenges 
associated with grid modernization, as well as the gaps in our 
current understanding not addressed by existing studies, and 
accordingly directs the National Academies of Sciences, 
Engineering, and Medicine to conduct an evaluation of the 
expected medium- and long-term evolution of the grid. This 
evaluation shall focus on developments that include the 
emergence of new technologies, planning and operating 
techniques, grid architecture, and business models. This study 
will provide critical insight into the future of the grid, 
particularly with respect to the distribution network and its 
interface with the rest of the grid, and will inform decisions 
regarding strategic investment of Federal funds and other 
policies, including ensuring proper steps are taken to address 
cybersecurity.
    Subsurface Crosscut.--The Committee supports the ongoing 
Subsurface Technology and Engineering Research [SubTER] 
Initiative, which is focused on revolutionizing sustainable 
subsurface energy production and storage through 
transformational improvements in the ability to access, 
characterize, predict, and adaptively manipulate subsurface 
fracture and flow processes. SubTER aims to double reservoir 
recovery, decrease the environmental footprint, and enhance 
energy security and public safety. The Committee supports the 
SubTER program's approach to increasing domestic supply of oil, 
gas, and geothermal energy resources by manipulating the 
permeability of subsurface rock formations to injection fluids. 
To validate methods which enhance oil and gas recovery from 
fracking wells, the Committee encourages the Department to 
conduct pilot field tests of promising technologies with 
university and industry partners to reduce permeability and 
control the flow of fluids in the subsurface with targets of 
blocking highly permeable pathways that reduce sweep efficiency 
in porous rock and plugging fractures in shales.
    Energy-Water Nexus.--The Committee recognizes water and 
energy are critical resources that are reciprocally linked. The 
Energy-Water Nexus crosscut consists of a collaboration of 
agencies, national laboratories, State and local governments, 
utilities, industry, and the science community working 
collectively to address energy and water resource challenges, 
specifically as they relate to energy security and energy 
sector water needs.
    Advanced Materials.--The Committee supports the Department-
wide crosscut on advanced materials, which focuses on 
lightweight materials and composites and corrosion and 
materials under extremes. The Committee understands in previous 
years, other program offices independently had standalone 
existing materials programs, and continues to support formal 
coordination across offices through the Materials Working 
Group. This is an unprecedented opportunity to impact the 
materials development cycle from scientific discovery to 
technological innovation and deployment.
    Cybersecurity Crosscut.--Cybersecurity activities within 
the Department cover a broad scope ranging from the protection 
of Department assets against cybersecurity threats to improving 
cybersecurity in the electric power and oil and natural gas 
sectors to other areas in the national security portfolio. As 
cybersecurity threats become more complex, and the Department 
increases its focus on cybersecurity research and development, 
it is vital that there be clear crosscutting objectives and 
coordination across the Department. The budget proposes to 
develop a Multi-Year Program Plan for the Energy Sector, which 
will complement the energy sector-developed Roadmap to Achieve 
Energy Delivery Systems Cybersecurity. While that effort is 
important, it is not sufficient. The Committee directs the 
Department to develop a plan that integrates all of the 
Department's cybersecurity investments, and brief the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on that 
plan before delivery of the fiscal year 2019 budget request.
    Arctic Energy Office.--The Committee supports the promotion 
of research, development, and deployment of electric power 
technology that is cost-effective and well-suited to meet the 
needs of rural and remote regions of the United States, 
especially where permafrost is present or located nearby. In 
addition, the Committee further supports research, development 
and deployment in such regions of enhanced oil recovery 
technology, including heavy oil recovery, reinjection of 
carbon, and extended reach drilling technologies; gas-to-
liquids technology and liquefied natural gas, including 
associated transportation systems; small hydroelectric 
facilities, river turbines, and tidal power; natural gas 
hydrates, coal bed methane, and shallow bed natural gas; and 
alternative energy, including wind, geothermal, and fuel cells. 
The Department is encouraged to support a renewed focus on the 
Arctic region, and as a cross-cutting activity, use the Arctic 
Energy Office as a centralized area to support the use of 
energy resources, but also innovative activities, including 
microgrids and integrated energy systems.
    Regional Initiatives.--The Committee urges the Department 
to utilize investments through existing regional capabilities 
that include industry, universities, and State and regional 
economic development assets. The Committee further encourages 
the national laboratories to expand their geographic outreach 
through people and access to specialized equipment and user 
facilities in order to contribute to the success of these 
regional initiatives.

                        COMMONLY RECYCLED PAPER

    The Secretary shall not expend funds for projects that 
knowingly use as a feedstock commonly recycled paper that is 
segregated from municipal solid waste or collected as part of a 
collection system that commingles commonly recycled paper with 
other solid waste at any point from the time of collection 
through materials recovery.

                             FIVE-YEAR PLAN

    The Secretary is required by 42 U.S.C. 7279a, enacted by 
the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012, to include in the 
Department's annual budget request proposed funding levels for 
the request year and 4 subsequent years, at a level of detail 
commensurate with the current budget justification documents. 
This requirement is to ensure that the Secretary is proposing a 
current budget that takes into account realistic budget 
constraints in future years, and that Congress has full 
visibility into the future implications of current budget 
decisions across the Department's energy programs.
    The Committee directs the Secretary to submit a report, not 
later than September 30, 2018, to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress, on a plan to comply 
with 42 U.S.C. 7279a. Failure to provide this report may result 
in more directive measures to ensure the Secretary complies 
with the law and engages in practices that safeguard taxpayer 
dollars.

reliability.
    Early-Stage Research and Development.--The President's 
budget request proposes a shift away from later stage research 
and development activities to refocus the Department on an 
early-stage research and development mission. The Committee 
believes that such an approach will not successfully integrate 
the results of early-stage research and development into the 
U.S. energy system and thus will not adequately deliver 
innovative energy technologies, practices, and information to 
American consumers and companies. Notably, this is the case 
with complex systems and structures such as America's homes, 
offices and other buildings. The Committee provides funding to 
support a comprehensive and real-world strategy that includes 
medium- and later-stage research and development; deployment 
and demonstration activities; and other approaches that are 
designed to utilize the most effective means to increase 
buildings' energy efficiency in order to promote their 
affordability, sustainability, resilience, and productivity.

workforce is critical to the successful deployment and long-
term sustainability of energy efficient and renewable energy 
technologies. The Committee encourages funding within EERE 
programs to be allocated to training and workforce development 
programs that assist and support workers in trades and 
activities required for the continued growth of the U.S. energy 
efficiency and clean energy sectors. Furthermore, the Committee 
encourages the Department to work with 2-year, public 
community, and technical colleges for job training programs 
that lead to an industry-recognized credential in the energy 
workforce.

from the budget request. Within available funds, the Committee 
recommends $27,000,000 for program direction.
    Early-Stage Research, Electricity Sector.--The Committee 
rejects the budget's sole focus on early-stage research. Most 
utilities have limited research and development budgets, 
primarily due to regulatory constraints designed to keep 
electricity costs low for consumers. Additionally, utilities 
are unlikely to implement new concepts because most utilities 
would need to use their own systems for testing and evaluation, 
which could impact consumers. State public utility commissions 
also have limited budgets that do not support research and 
development. The States rely heavily on the Department's 
technical assistance on assessments of data and tools to help 
them evaluate grid modernization alternatives. The Department 
plays a vital role, not only in early-stage research, but also 
in deployment, field testing, and evaluation.

                        TRANSMISSION RELIABILITY

    The Committee recommends $36,000,000 for Transmission 
Reliability.
    The Committee encourages the Department to prioritize the 
development of computer simulation tools that can predict the 
behavior of new technologies, such as variable generation and 
electronic controls, on the grid. The Committee supports 
continued investment in advanced grid modeling algorithms and 
tool development to ensure resilient grid controls and 
protection systems that meet the challenges of the emerging 
smart grid.

                     RESILIENT DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

    The Committee recommends $35,000,000 for Resilient 
Distribution Systems.
    Within available funding, $5,000,000 is recommended for 
field validation of sensors using data analytics for utilities 
to improve operations in steady-state and under extreme 
conditions, and to continue early-stage research to develop 
low-cost, printable sensors that can predict the health of 
critical equipment in the electric delivery system.
    The Committee supports the promotion of regional 
demonstrations of new, utility-led, residential Connected 
Communities advancing smart grid systems.
    The Committee recommends that funds provided for the 
Advanced Grid Integration Division shall focus on identifying 
and addressing technical and regulatory barriers impeding grid 
integration of distributed energy systems to reduce energy 
costs and improve the resiliency and reliability of the 
electric grid.
    The Committee supports advanced control concepts and open 
test beds for new distribution control tools for enhanced 
distribution system resilience.

               CYBERSECURITY FOR ENERGY DELIVERY SYSTEMS

    The Committee recommends $53,000,000 for Cybersecurity for 
Energy Delivery Systems.
    Within available funds, the Committee recommends not less 
than $5,000,000 to develop cyber and cyber-physical solutions 
for advanced control concepts for distribution and municipal 
utility companies. The Committee encourages the Department to 
explore ways to get the Nation's critical infrastructure off 
the Internet to shield the Nation's electricity infrastructure 
from disruptive cyber penetration. Within available funds, the 
Department is directed to fund the third and final year of the 
Department of Energy Cooperative Agreement Projects DE-OE-
00000807, ``Improving the Cyber and Physical Security Posture 
of the Electric Sector'', and DE-OE-0000811, ``Improving the 
Cyber Resiliency and Security Posture of Public Power''.
    The Committee supports extension of cyber risk information 
sharing tools to close remaining vulnerabilities in the 
distribution and transmission system. The Committee encourages 
the Department to continue existing work within ongoing 
programs and encourages the Department to invest in research 
addressing power system vulnerabilities in supply chain and 
life cycle management for critical power system components and 
advanced adaptive defensive methods for grid control systems.

                             ENERGY STORAGE

    The Committee recommends $37,141,000 for Energy Storage.
    Within available funds, the Committee supports developing 
an operational energy storage test facility capable of 
performance-driven data in a utility environment.
    Within available funding, the Committee encourages the 
Department to further the development and demonstration of non-
battery advanced storage components, including compressed air 
energy storage development and demonstration to enable 
efficiency improvements for utility-scale, bulk energy storage 
solutions.
    The Committee notes that innovation and advancement in 
distributed energy resources is helping the Nation's power grid 
to better address reliability, resiliency, safety, and 
accessibility. This enhances our Nation's energy security and 
global leadership. The Committee encourages the Department to 
further advance the development and demonstration of innovative 
battery and non-battery energy storage components. Energy 
storage is needed to better enable distributed energy 
resources; integrate intermittent uses such as water heaters, 
electric vehicle chargers, battery storage systems, and pumps; 
help balance supply and demand in the power grid to aid 
consumers to better manage their energy costs; protect 
residential and commercial customers and public services from 
power interruptions; and improve grid security and reliability.
    The Committee supports grid-scale field demonstrations of 
energy storage projects, either as single facilities or as 
aggregations of units, with a focus on new use cases rather 
than new battery chemistry. The Committee encourages the 
Department to support State energy offices with energy storage 
planning and deployment, as well universities and to 
participate in industry-led safety codes and standards 
development. The Committee also supports funding for 
development of analytical methods for including energy storage 
in electric system planning, as well as for development of 
software tools to better value energy storage technologies. The 
Committee encourages the Department to consider expanding 
research and development partnerships related to the 
development and deployment of energy storage with stakeholders 
in diverse geographic regions with unique market dynamics and 
policy challenges that can help to inform nationwide efforts to 
improve grid resiliency, reliability, and security, empower 
consumers, and increase integration of a broad range of 
generation sources.
    The Committee is supportive of research for novel materials 
and system components to resolve key cost and performance 
challenges for electrochemical energy storage systems based on 
earth abundant advanced chemistries. In addition, the Committee 
supports continued materials research that will improve the 
understanding and predictability of energy storage systems and 
components, as well as enable safer and more reliable materials 
and systems to be developed.

             TRANSFORMER RESILIENCE AND ADVANCED COMPONENTS

    The Committee recommends $7,000,000 for Transformer 
Resilience and Advanced Components.
    Within available funds, the Committee directs the 
Department to continue to support research and development for 
advanced components and grid materials for low-cost, power flow 
control devices, including both solid state and hybrid concepts 
that use power electronics to control electromagnetic devices 
and enable improved controllability, flexibility, and 
resiliency.

             INFRASTRUCTURE SECURITY AND ENERGY RESTORATION

    The Committee recommends $12,000,000 for Infrastructure 
Security and Energy Restoration. The Committee recommends an 
additional $3,000,000 above the request in recognition of the 
importance of the security of the energy sector.
    The Committee supports further development of energy sector 
situational awareness capabilities through Eagle-I, the Federal 
Government's situational awareness tool for national power 
outages. The Committee encourages the Department to further 
illustrate how to benefit from increased access to more varied 
sources of data.
    The Committee encourages the Department to continue to 
develop implementation strategies and analysis in partnership 
with industry, universities, and laboratories to address 
potential impacts to the electric grid from cyber-attacks, 
geomagnetic disturbances, and electromagnetic pulse threats. 
The Committee directs the Department to provide within 90 days 
of enactment of this act a report identifying strategic 
laboratory, university, and industry partnerships that would 
enhance national security and assist industry in addressing 
critical threats, including electromagnetic pulse, geomagnetic 
disturbances, cyber-attacks, and supply chain disruptions. The 
Committee encourages the Department to consider existing assets 
that can be used for testing to support operational awareness, 
situational security, and recovery of the Nation's critical 
grid infrastructure.

                             Nuclear Energy

Appropriations, 2017....................................  $1,016,616,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................     703,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     917,020,000

    The Committee recommends $917,020,000 for Nuclear Energy, 
an increase of $214,020,000 from the budget request. The 
Committee's recommendation for nuclear power prioritizes 
funding for programs, projects and activities that will ensure 
a strong future for nuclear power in the United States.
    Nuclear power provides more than 20 percent of our Nation's 
electricity and nearly 60 percent of our emissions-free 
electricity. Electricity generation from our Nation's 99 
operating nuclear power plants is critical to our national 
security, economy, and way of life.

                        Research and Development


                     INTEGRATED UNIVERSITY PROGRAM

    The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for the Integrated 
University Program. The Committee notes the administration 
repeatedly attempts to defund this program, despite continued 
success in developing highly qualified nuclear specialists to 
meet national needs.

                   NUCLEAR ENERGY ENABLING TECHNOLOGY

    The Committee recommends $120,600,000 for Nuclear Energy 
Enabling Technology. Within this amount, the Committee 
recommends $37,000,000 for Crosscutting Technology Development, 
$28,200,000 for Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and 
Simulation, $31,100,000 for National Scientific User 
Facilities, and $24,300,000 for the Energy Innovation Hub for 
Modeling and Simulation. Funding for nuclear cybersecurity and 
hybrid electric systems is recommended only within Crosscutting 
Technology Development, as in previous years. Further, the 
Committee notes that the budget request made the short-sighted 
recommendation to cancel the Energy Innovation Hub for Modeling 
and Simulation, despite the important contributions it 
continues to make to improving operations and safety of 
operating nuclear reactors, and its likely application in 
licensing accident tolerant fuels and other advanced 
technologies.

       REACTOR CONCEPTS RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND DEMONSTRATION

    The Committee recommends $132,000,000 for Reactor Concepts 
Research, Development, and Demonstration. Advanced nuclear 
technologies hold great promise for reliable, safe, emission-
free energy and should be a priority for the Department. Absent 
a clear set of goals for completing a program that demonstrates 
new technology can be deployed, the Department will continue to 
research concepts that never make it to the marketplace. The 
Committee directs the Department to provide a report to 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress within 
180 days of the date of enactment of this act that sets 
aggressive, but achievable goals to demonstrate a variety of 
private-sector advanced reactor designs and fuel types by the 
late 2020s. The report shall include anticipated costs, both 
Federal and private, needed to achieve the goals. The 
Department shall collaborate with national laboratories, 
nuclear vendors, utilities, potential end users (such as 
petrochemical companies), and other stakeholders to identify 
subprogram priorities necessary to meet the identified goals.
    Advanced Reactor Technology.--Within available funds, the 
Committee recommends $92,000,000, including $18,000,000 for the 
third year of the advanced reactor concepts program and 
$3,000,000 for testing and development of dynamic convection 
technology. No funds are provided for engineering, design, or 
regulatory development for next generation light water reactor 
technologies.
    Versatile Fast Reactor.--The Committee recommends no 
funding for the Versatile Fast Reactor. The Department 
continues to recommend new programs or projects without showing 
any commitment to follow through with existing programs, 
especially key programs that show promise, or providing a 
detailed rationale for canceling those programs or projects. 
Accordingly, the Committee is reluctant to support a new multi-
billion dollar project. The Committee directs the Department to 
provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress within 90 days after the date of enactment 
of this act that details all current programs and projects 
within the Office of Nuclear Energy, whether the Department 
plans to continue to support each program or project, and the 
expected out-year funding through completion of the program or 
project.
    Light Water Reactor Sustainability.--Within available 
funds, the Committee recommends $40,000,000. The most cost-
effective way for the United States to maintain low-cost, 
carbon-free electricity is to safely extend the lives of our 
Nation's existing nuclear reactors from 60 to 80 years. 
Therefore, the Committee recommends additional funding above 
the budget request for this activity as a priority. The 
Committee directs the Secretary to use funding in this activity 
to continue research and development work on the technical 
basis for subsequent license renewal. The Secretary shall focus 
funding in this program on materials aging and degradation, 
advanced instrumentation and control technologies, and 
component aging modeling and simulation. The Secretary shall 
also coordinate with industry to determine other areas of high-
priority research and development in this area.

                  FUEL CYCLE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommends $213,500,000 for Fuel Cycle 
Research and Development. No defense function funds are 
provided. Within available funds, $14,000,000 is for Material 
Recovery and Waste Form Development, $6,000,000 is for 
Materials Protection, Accountancy, and Controls for 
Transmutation, and $8,500,000 is for Systems Analysis and 
Integration.
    The Committee continues to strongly support the 
recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Commission on America's 
Nuclear Future and believes that near-term action is needed to 
address the accumulating inventory of spent nuclear fuel. The 
Committee recommends $35,000,000 for Integrated Waste 
Management System activities. Funding should be used to 
implement plans to consolidate spent nuclear fuel from around 
the United States to one or more private or government interim 
central storage facilities. Priority shall be given to 
accepting spent nuclear fuel from shutdown reactors, and to 
accelerating the development of a transportation capability to 
move spent fuel from its current storage locations. Within 
funds provided, the Committee recommends up to $10,000,000 for 
the Secretary, within existing authorities, to contract for the 
management of spent nuclear fuel to which the Secretary holds 
the title or has a contract to accept title, which includes 
contracting with a private company for consolidated interim 
storage of spent nuclear fuel.
    The Committee does not adopt the budget proposal to 
eliminate research and development activities previously funded 
in this account. The Committee recommends $65,000,000 to 
continue research and development activities on behavior of 
spent fuel in long-term storage, under transportation 
conditions, and in various geologic media, which will continue 
to be important to developing a new solution to the waste 
problem. Priority shall be placed on the ongoing study of the 
performance of high-burnup fuel in dry storage and on the 
potential for direct disposal of existing spent fuel dry 
storage canister technologies.
    The Committee continues to place a high priority on the 
development of nuclear fuels with enhanced accident-tolerant 
characteristics in order to significantly mitigate the 
potential consequences of a nuclear accident. The Committee 
urges the Secretary to maintain focus and priority on achieving 
results in these efforts. The Committee recommends $85,000,000 
for the Advanced Fuels program. The Department is directed to 
continue implementation of the accident tolerant fuels 
development program, the goal of which remains development of 
accident tolerant nuclear fuels leading to commercial reactor 
fuel assembly testing by 2022. Within this amount not less than 
$55,600,000 is recommended to continue the participation of 
three industry-led teams in Phase 2 of the cost-shared research 
and development program. Further the Committee recommends not 
less than $20,000,000 to support accident tolerant fuels 
development at the national laboratories and other facilities, 
including at the Advanced Test Reactor, the Transient Reactor 
Test Facility, and the Halden reactor. In addition to amounts 
awarded through the Small Business Innovation Research and 
Small Business Technology Transfer programs, $3,000,000 is to 
continue of the previously awarded small business projects to 
develop ceramic cladding for accident tolerant fuels.

                             Infrastructure


                   RADIOLOGICAL FACILITIES MANAGEMENT

    The Committee recommends $24,000,000 for Radiological 
Facilities Management, including $15,000,000 for continued safe 
operations and maintenance of Oak Ridge National Laboratory hot 
cells.

                      IDAHO FACILITIES MANAGEMENT

    The Committee recommends $216,202,000 for Idaho Facilities 
Management, which includes $12,000,000 above the requested 
level for operations and maintenance of the Advanced Test 
Reactor. The Advanced Test Reactor [ATR] is a vital asset that 
provides research capability across the Department. The 
Committee does not agree with the Department's proposal to 
shift additional costs for ATR operations to Defense function 
funds, particularly without any justification for the change. 
The Committee directs the Department to provide a report to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress not 
later than December 31, 2017, that lists all current and 
planned users for the ATR for the next 3 years, the operating 
cost attributed to each user, and the source of funds that will 
be applied to cover the costs for each user. Further, the 
Committee encourages the Department to fully fund ATR 
operations within the budget request for the Office of Nuclear 
Energy, including both Defense and non-Defense function 
funding.

                 Fossil Energy Research and Development

Appropriations, 2017....................................    $668,000,000

    Early-Stage Research and Development.--The Fossil Energy 
Research and Development program advances transformative 
scientific research, development, and deployment of 
technologies that enable the reliable, efficient, affordable, 
and environmentally sound use of fossil fuels. Fossil energy is 
an essential part of the United States' energy future, and the 
National Energy Technology Laboratory [NETL] supports the 
Office of Fossil Energy in this critical national priority. The 
Committee rejects the approach to only provide funds for early-
stage research. Such restrictions would cripple innovation and 
development, and would reduce the number of energy technologies 
adopted in the marketplace.
    Fossil Energy Roadmap.--The Committee directs the 
Department to develop a cohesive policy strategy and supporting 
roadmap or long term plan for its Fossil Energy Research and 
Development portfolio and supporting infrastructure to guide 
the discovery or advancement of technological solutions that 
incorporate lessons learned for the future of research, 
development, and demonstration efforts on advanced carbon 
capture and storage [CCS] technologies, advanced fossil energy 
systems, and crosscutting fossil energy research, as well as 
guide the discovery or advancement of technological solutions 
for the prudent and sustainable development of unconventional 
oil and gas. The Department is directed to deliver the ``Fossil 
Energy Roadmap'' to the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress within 1 year of enactment of this act.
    NETL.--No funds provided in by this Act shall be used for 
the closure of NETL sites. The Committee is supportive of 
NETL's mission to discover, develop, and deploy new 
technologies to support a strong domestic fossil energy path. 
The Committee directs the Department to conduct a comprehensive 
assessment of Fossil Energy writ large to include the Fossil 
Energy Headquarters programs, NETL, and relevant competencies 
of other national laboratories which support the mission of the 
Office of Fossil Energy. The assessment will include an 
examination of the roles and responsibilities of staff within 
the Headquarters program, operations offices, and NETL to 
ensure the fossil energy research and development portfolio and 
supporting infrastructure are responsive to a cohesive policy 
strategy.
    National Carbon Capture Center.--The Committee recommends 
funding for the Department's National Carbon Capture Center 
consistent with the cooperative agreement and fiscal year 2017. 
The Committee continues to encourage the Department to 
establish university partnerships to support ongoing fossil 
energy programs, to promote broader research into CCS 
technologies, and to expand its technology transfer efforts. 
The Department has previously funded several university-based 
CCS projects and is encouraged to build on an established 
research base to support ongoing research and to address the 
wider implementation of CCS technologies.
    The Committee reiterates the importance of adequate Federal 
support to promote design-related work and testing for a 
commercial-scale, post-combustion carbon dioxide capture 
project on an existing coal-fueled generating unit as well as 
fossil energy research, development, and deployment of 
breakthrough technologies.

                       COAL CCS AND POWER SYSTEMS

    The Committee recommends $342,054,000 for Coal CCS and 
Power Systems.
    The Committee supports the Department's Cooperative 
Agreements to develop cost sharing partnerships to conduct 
basic, fundamental, and applied research that assist industry 
in developing, deploying, and commercializing efficient, low-
carbon, nonpolluting energy technologies that could compete 
effectively in meeting requirements for clean fuels, chemical 
feedstocks, electricity, and water resources. The Committee 
encourages the Department to fund activities that promote the 
reuse of captured carbon dioxide from coal, natural gas, 
industrial facilities, and other sources for the production of 
fuels and other valuable products. Within the ongoing CCS 
Program, the Department is encouraged to pursue an aggressive 
timeline to develop advanced carbon storage and utilization 
technologies and enhanced oil recovery that will improve the 
economics associated with domestic energy production.
    Carbon Storage.--Within available funds for Carbon Storage, 
the Committee recommends $10,000,000 for Carbon Use and Reuse 
to continue research and development activities to support 
valuable and innovative uses for carbon. The Committee believes 
the potential for carbon dioxide utilization technologies to 
become economically viable has improved in recent years and 
these technologies should continue to receive attention from 
the Department. The Committee urges the Department to support 
carbon dioxide utilization technologies and direct air capture 
technologies, including using carbon dioxide to produce algae. 
The Committee encourages the Office of Fossil Energy to 
collaborate with the Bioenergy Technologies program within EERE 
to support projects that utilize carbon dioxide in the 
production of algae and other potentially marketable products. 
Within the Storage Infrastructure subprogram, the Committee 
recemmends not less than $40,000,000 and directs the Department 
to issue a new solicitation for the Regional Carbon 
Sequestration Partnerships and CarbonSAFE. The Committee 
encourages the Department to focus on value-added business case 
opportunities and to address potential changing markets related 
to natural gas power generation and emissions from industrial 
sources. Further, the Committee supports the Regional Carbon 
Sequestration Partnerships' focus on infrastructure development 
strategies for regional and national carbon dioxide 
transportation and distribution systems that will be the 
catalyst for commercial ventures in carbon storage and 
utilization.
    Advanced Energy Systems.--Within funds available for 
Advanced Energy Systems, the Committee recommends not less than 
$30,000,000 for solid oxide fuel cell systems, which support 
research and development to enable efficient, cost-effective 
electricity generation with minimal use of water. The Committee 
recommends $23,250,000 for Gasification Systems, of which 
$7,440,000 is for the Advanced Air Separation Program to 
continue activities improving advanced air separation 
technologies. The Committee encourages the Department to 
support research and development efforts for new, higher 
efficiency gas turbines used in power generation systems to 
upgrade and increase the resiliency of the Nation's electrical 
grid system, while reducing the cost of electricity and 
emissions. This should include partnerships with industry, 
small businesses, universities, and other appropriate parties. 
The Committee supports advancing the maturity of affordable 
clean energy technology for new plants and upgrading existing 
plants. The Committee is concerned with the lack of funding for 
wastewater treatment at existing power plants and supports 
conducting techno-economic studies and pilot tests of 
combustion technology to treat coal plant wastewater while 
generating excess electricity to offset the water treatment 
costs.
    Crosscutting Research.--The Committee supports Advanced 
Ultrasupercritical Materials research and development to 
identify, test, qualify, and develop a domestic supply chain 
capable of producing components from high temperature steam 
materials.

                        NATURAL GAS TECHNOLOGIES

    The Committee recommends $45,018,000 for Natural Gas 
Technologies. The Committee encourages the Department to 
support the research and demonstration of natural gas 
conversion technologies, which include waste-gas heat-to-
electricity applications to create energy self-sufficient, 
high-efficiency, low-emission, oil and gas production sites on 
Federal and tribal lands. The Department is encouraged to 
address technical challenges to offshore oil and gas 
exploration and production, focusing on the development of 
technologies that enhance safe drilling operations, improving 
well integrity, improving riser designs and integrity, and 
safely extending the life and productivity of aging offshore 
oil and gas infrastructure. The Committee encourages the 
Department to support work related to blowout prevention.
    Risk-Based Data Management System.--Within available funds, 
the Committee recommends $5,200,000 to continue the Risk Based 
Data Management System [RBDMS] to support a cloud-based 
application and necessary cybersecurity initiatives. In

FracFocus and RBDMS for improved public access to State oil and 
gas related data, as well as for State regulatory agencies to 
support electronic permitting for operators, eForms for 
improved processing time for new permits, operator training 
from the improved FracFocus 3.2 after enhancements are 
implemented, and miscellaneous reports, such as ``Produced 
Water Report: Current and Future Beneficial Uses Report.'' The 
Committee supports the continued efforts to provide public 
transparency, while protecting proprietary information.
    Methane Hydrate Activities.--The Committee recommends 
$19,800,000 for methane hydrates, and notes that the request 
includes no money for actual research into the methods for 
producing methane hydrates. The Committee recommendation 
encourages the Secretary to perform a long-term methane hydrate 
production test in the Arctic, as proposed in the Methane 
Hydrate Advisory Committee's May 21, 2014, recommendations to 
the Secretary.
    Ethane Storage Hub.--The Committee understands the 
Department is conducting a study on the feasibility of 
establishing an ethane storage and distribution hub in central 
Appalachia. The Department is further directed to identify the 
Federal agencies with jurisdictional oversight of such a 
project and to coordinate with the liaisons of those agencies 
to streamline the permitting application and approval process 
for a central Appalachian ethane storage and distribution hub.
    Environmentally Prudent Development.--The Committee 
recommends $7,000,000 for the Environmentally Prudent 
Development subprogram.
    Emissions Mitigation from Midstream Infrastructure.--The 
Committee recommends $9,000,000 for the Emissions Mitigation 
from Midstream Infrastructure subprogram. The Committee 
believes that the development, production, and transportation 
of natural gas should be done safely, without contamination, 
and in a way that reduces fugitive methane emissions. These 
practices are essential for mitigating environmental harms from 
shale gas development and reducing waste contamination. The 
Committee encourages the Department to continue developing 
advanced pipeline inspection technologies to aid in cleaner and 
safer oil and gas development. The Committee recommends funds 
for natural gas infrastructure research, including advanced 
materials and novel sensor technologies. The Department is 
directed to incorporate this research into its ongoing work in 
this field, so that it shall complement the Emissions 
Mitigation from Midstream Infrastructure subprogram.
    Emissions Quantification from Natural Gas Infrastructure.--
The Committee recommends $4,018,000 for the Emissions 
Quantification from Natural Gas Infrastructure research 
subprogram.

               UNCONVENTIONAL FOSSIL ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES

    The Committee recommends $26,319,000 for Unconventional 
Fossil Energy Technologies. The Committee notes the importance 
of providing research support that will assure sustainable, 
reliable, affordable, and environmentally sound supplies of 
domestic unconventional fossil energy resources.
    The Secretary is encouraged to fund high-priority research, 
development, and deployment activities for unconventional oil, 
gas, and coal resources, including oil shale, as outlined in 
the September 2011 Domestic Unconventional Fossil Energy 
Resource Opportunities and Technology Applications report.
    The Committee recommends $7,660,000 for research to better 
understand reservoirs and to improve low recovery factors from 
unconventional natural gas and oil wells through more efficient 
well completion methods. An additional $7,659,000 is provided 
to continue research toward enhanced recovery technologies in 
shale oil, low permeability reservoirs, residual oil zone 
reservoirs and technology transfer methods. These efforts 
should be coordinated by the Department on a nationwide basis 
through a consortium of researchers and industry. Funds shall 
be awarded to a not-for-profit or university consortium 
comprised of multidisciplinary teams from industry, academia, 
and stakeholder groups that may also include State 
organizations. The projects will include research projects to 
improve environmental mitigation, water quality and treatment, 
infrastructure technology as well as the societal impacts of 
unconventional shale plays. These awards shall identify ways to 
improve existing technologies, encourage prudent development, 
provide cost effective solutions, and develop a better 
understanding of these reservoirs' resource potential.
    The Committee directs the Department, in consultation with 
the Department of Transportation, to complete the crude oil 
characterization study to improve the safety of crude oil 
transported by rail. The Committee recommends up to $1,000,000 
for completion of the study.
    The Committee recommends not less than $10,000,000 for the 
Unconventional Field Test Sites.
    The Committee supports research and development for 
drilling technologies that use little to no water. Further, the 
Committee supports research on multipronged approaches for 
characterizing the constituents of and managing the cleaning of 
water produced during the extraction of oil and natural gas, 
and encourages the Department to partner with research 
universities engaged in the study of characterizing, cleaning, 
treating, and managing produced water and industry partners to 
develop and assess commercially viable technology to achieve 
the same. The Committee encourages the Department to work with 
industry to identify and develop technologies that can 
characterize, clean, and effectively treat produced water to 
have beneficial reuse.
    The Committee recognizes that the United States possesses 
vast domestic coal reserves that cannot be mined economically 
at current prices. Although some natural gas is absorbed by 
coal and can be economically recovered through methane 
extraction, more efficient recovery mechanisms are feasible. To 
validate methods for recovering a greater fraction of energy 
contained in deep coal deposits, the Committee encourages the 
Department to conduct pilot field tests of technologies for in-
situ biological conversion of coal to natural gas with 
university participants, and evaluate the feasibility of 
converting coal deposits in both the Western and Eastern United 
States into natural gas.

Committee recommends $15,000,000 for the Department to expand 
its external agency activities to develop and test commercially 
viable advanced separation technologies at proof-of-concept or 
pilot scale that can be deployed near term for the extraction 
and recovery of rare earth elements and minerals from U.S. coal 
and coal byproduct sources having the highest potential for 
success. The Committee encourages the Department to leverage 
the capabilities of outside applied researchers in implementing 
these activities. The Committee directs the Department to 
establish university partnerships to support efforts to 
increase production of unconventional fossil fuels through 
innovative seismic research, including optimizing high 
resolution and time-lapse geophysical methods for improved 
resource detection and better rock characterization. The 
objective of this research is to facilitate necessary 
technology development, expand understanding of subsurface 
dynamics, encourage prudent development and develop best 
practices and tools.
    Within NETL Infrastructure and Operations, the Committee 
directs the Department to prioritize funds to provide site-wide 
upgrades for safety, avoid an increase in deferred maintenance, 
and provide for the continued update and refresh of Joule 
through the second year of a 3-year lease.

Energy Sciences Program on High Energy Density Plasmas and 
recognizes the partnerships between the laboratories and 
research universities to address the critical need for skilled 
graduates to replace an aging workforce.

                          HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS

    The Committee recommends $860,000,000 for High Energy 
Physics. The Committee strongly supports the Secretary's 
efforts to advance the recommendations of the Particle Physics 
Project Prioritization Panel Report, which established clear 
priorities for the domestic particle physics program.
    Within available funds, the Committee recommends 
$82,000,000 for the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility/Deep 
Underground Neutrino Experiment. The Committee recommends 
funding for the Muon to Electron Conversion Experiment (Mu2e) 
consistent with the approved baseline funding profile and 
$5,000,000 to continue the upgrade of the Facility for Advanced 
Accelerator Experimental Tests II. In addition, the Committee 
continues to strongly support U.S. participation in the Large 
Hadron Collider [LHC] at CERN, and directs the Department to 
prioritize and provide optimal funding for the LHC accelerator 
upgrades and the LHC CMS and ATLAS collaboration activities.
    Within Cosmic Frontier Experimental Physics, the Committee 
recommends $17,500,000 for the Dark Energy Spectroscopic 
Instrument and $14,100,000 for the G2 Dark Matter Experiment 
LUX ZEPLIN. The Committee recommends $9,800,000 for the Large 
Synoptic Survey Telescope Camera. The Committee recommends 
$24,100,000 for the Proton Improvement Project II at Fermi 
National Laboratory. This funding will advance design work for 
accelerator upgrades that will support the LBNF project. The 
Committee also recommends $7,400,000 for SuperCDMS-SnoLab.

                            NUCLEAR PHYSICS

    The Committee recommends $639,200,000 for Nuclear Physics, 
and strongly supports the 2015 Long Range Plan for Nuclear 
Science released in October 2015 to address important 
scientific questions with modest or constrained growth in the 
nuclear science budgets, while still maintaining a strong, 
vital and world leading program.
    Within available funds, the Committee recommends 
$97,200,000 for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams [FRIB], and 
encourages the Department to work with Michigan State 
University to commence early operations at FRIB. The Committee 
also recommends $5,000,000 for the Stable Isotope Production 
Facility to provide increased domestic capacity for production 
of critically needed enriched stable isotopes for research, 
defense, and industry, and reduce the Nation's dependence on 
foreign supplies. The Committee also recommends $3,200,000 for 
the Gamma-Ray Energy Tracking Array [GRETA], which will enable 
advanced, high resolution gamma ray detection capabilities for 
FRIB.
    The Committee further recommends $174,600,000 for 
operations at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, and optimal 
operations for the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator 
Facility, the Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System, and the 
Brookhaven Linac Isotope Producer Facility.

                  SCIENCE LABORATORIES INFRASTRUCTURE

    The Committee recommends $143,000,000 for Science 
Laboratories Infrastructure.
    Within these funds, the Committee recommends $26,000,000 
for nuclear operations at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In 
future budget requests, the Committee directs the Office of 
Science to work with the Office of Nuclear Energy to 
demonstrate a commitment to operations and maintenance of 
nuclear facilities at Oak Ridge National Laboratory that 
support multiple critical missions.

               Advanced Research Projects Agency--Energy

Appropriations, 2017....................................    $306,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................     -26,367,000
Committee recommendation................................     330,000,000

    The Committee recommends $330,000,000 for the Advanced 
Research Projects Agency--Energy [ARPA-E], an increase of 
$356,367,000 above the budget request. Within available funds, 
the Committee recommends $29,250,000 for program direction.
    ARPA-E was established by the America COMPETES Act of 2007 
following a recommendation by the National Academies of 
Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in the ``Rising Above the 
Gathering Storm'' report. Since receiving its first funding in 
fiscal year 2009, ARPA-E continues to catalyze and support the 
development of transformational, high-impact energy 
technologies to ensure the Nation's economic and energy 
security and technological leadership. Project sponsors 
continue to form strategic partnerships and new companies, as 
well as secure private sector funding to help move ARPA-E 
technologies closer to the market.
    The budget request proposes to terminate ARPA-E and use 
funds appropriated in fiscal year 2017 for oversight and 
management. The Committee definitively rejects this short-
sighted proposal, and instead increases investment in this 
transformational program and directs the Department to continue 
to spend funds provided on research and development and program 
direction. The Department shall not use any appropriated funds 
to plan or execute the termination of ARPA-E. In addition, the 
Committee remains concerned about the timeliness of the current 
review process, and directs the Department to continue to move 
forward on approving Funding Opportunity Announcements.

    The Committee recommends $238,736,000 in funding for 
Departmental Administration including the Department's 
activities related to implementation of the Digital 
Accountability and Transparency Act. This funding is offset by 
$96,000,000 in revenue for a net appropriation of $142,736,000.
    The Committee has reduced the number of control points in 
this account in order to provide flexibility to the Department 
in its management and funding of its support functions. The 
Department is directed to continue to submit its budget request 
for this account in its current structure. The Other 
Departmental Administration activity includes Management, Chief 
Human Capital Officer, Chief Information Officer, Office of 
Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization, General Counsel, 
Energy Policy and Systems Analysis, Technology Transitions 
International Affairs, Public Affairs, Economic Impact and 
Diversity, and Office of Energy Jobs Development. The Office of 
Indian Energy Programs is funded in a separate account.
    Compliance with State Laws.--The Committee directs the 
Department to submit a report, no later than 30 days after 
enactment of this act, detailing projects approved under 42 
U.S.C. 16421 and the Department's efforts to ensure compliance 
with State laws, as applicable under 42 U.S.C. 16421(d)(2).
    Nonprofit Cost Share.--The Committee notes that the 
Secretary may reduce or eliminate the research and development 
match requirement established in section 988 of the Energy 
Policy Act of 2005, where necessary and appropriate. The 
Committee encourages the Secretary to consider the use of this 
discretion if the research goals of the Department would be 
advanced by reducing or eliminating the match requirement for 
nonprofit organizations and institutions.
    Small Refinery Exemption.--Under section 211(o)(9)(B) of 
the Clean Air Act, a small refinery may petition the EPA 
Administrator for an exemption from the Renewable Fuel Standard 
[RFS] on the basis that the refinery experiences a 
disproportionate economic hardship under the RFS. When 
evaluating a petition, the Administrator consults with the 
Secretary of Energy to determine whether disproportionate 
economic hardship exists. According to the Department's March 
2011 Small Refinery Exemption Study, disproportionate economic 
hardship must encompass two broad components: a high cost of 
compliance relative to the industry average disproportionate 
impacts, and an effect sufficient to cause a significant 
impairment of the refinery operations' viability. If the 
Secretary finds that either of these two components exists, the 
Committee directs the Secretary to recommend to the EPA 
Administrator at least a 50-percent waiver of RFS requirements 
for the petitioner. The Committee also directs the Secretary to 
score all of the metrics in the study and to score the metrics 
according to the 2011 study scoring criteria and not any later 
addendum to the study. The Secretary is directed to seek small 
refinery comment before making changes to its scoring metrics 
for small refinery petitions for RFS waivers, and to notify the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress prior 
to making any final changes to scoring metrics. Only the impact 
on the small refinery's transportation fuel margins is 
pertinent to measuring RFS impacts on relative refining 
margins. The Committee notes that the conference report 
accompanying the Energy and Water Development and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act, 2010, addressed similar issues and 
directed the Secretary to redo an earlier study done to 
evaluate whether the RFS program imposes a disproportionate 
economic hardship on small refineries. In calling for the 
Secretary to redo the study, the conference report cited the 
lack of small refinery input into the earlier study, concerns 
about regional RFS compliance cost disparities, small refinery 
dependence on the purchase of renewable fuel credits [RINs], 
and increasing RIN costs. Since then, the dramatic rise in RIN 
prices has amplified RFS compliance and competitive 
disparities, especially where unique regional factors exist, 
including high diesel demand production, no export access, and 
limited biodiesel infrastructure and production. In response to 
recent petitions in prior years, the Secretary determined that 
the RFS program would impose a disproportionate economic and 
structural impact on several small refineries. Despite this 
determination, the Secretary did not recommend, and EPA did not 
provide, any RFS relief because it determined the refineries 
were profitable enough to afford the cost of RFS compliance 
without substantially impacting their viability. The Committee 
reminds the Secretary that the RFS program may impose a 
disproportionate economic hardship on a small refinery even if 
the refinery makes enough profit to cover the cost of complying 
with the program. Small refinery profitability does not justify 
a disproportionate regulatory burden where Congress has 
explicitly given EPA authority, in consultation with the 
Secretary, to reduce or eliminate this burden.

    The Committee recommends $49,000,000 for the Office of the 
Inspector General, the same as the request.

                    ATOMIC ENERGY DEFENSE ACTIVITIES


                NATIONAL NUCLEAR SECURITY ADMINISTRATION

    The Committee recommendation for the National Nuclear 
Security Administration [NNSA] continues funding for 
recapitalization of our nuclear weapons infrastructure, while 
modernizing and maintaining a safe, secure, and credible 
nuclear deterrent without testing. This is among our most 
important national security priorities.
    At the same time, the Committee supports continuing 
important efforts to secure and permanently eliminate remaining 
stockpiles of nuclear and radiological materials overseas and 
in the United States that can be used for nuclear or 
radiological weapons. In addition, the Committee supports Naval 
Reactors and the important role they play in enabling the 
Navy's nuclear fleet.

                     INTEGRATED UNIVERSITY PROGRAM

    The Committee directs the Secretary to carry out the 
requirements of 42 U.S.C. 16274a in support of university 
research and development in areas relevant to the NNSA's 
mission. Within available funds, the Committee recommends not 
less than $5,000,000 for the Integrated University Program to 
cultivate the next generation of leaders in nonproliferation, 
nuclear security, and international security. Together with 
funds from the Office of Nuclear Energy and the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission, this program ensures highly qualified 
nuclear specialists will be available to meet national needs. 
The Committee directs the Secretary to request funding for this 
program in future budget years, and specifically highlight the 
source of funds within the budget request. Further, funding for 
this program shall not come from prior year funds.
    In addition to the Integrated University Program within 
Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation, NNSA manages several 
university-related programs, ranging from fellowships and 
scholarships to university research. NNSA has not been able to 
provide a clear accounting of these various programs, and is 
directed to provide a report annually with the budget request 
that lists all of the university programs requested, the 
recommended funding level, and the value that program provides 
the NNSA.

                           PROJECT MANAGEMENT

    The Committee is concerned about NNSA's ability to properly 
estimate costs and timelines for large projects. The NNSA is 
encouraged to assess current performance on projects costing 
more than $750,000,000, and make appropriate project management 
changes. The Committee encourages the NNSA to identify problems 
in cost and schedule estimates early, and provide updated 
information to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses 
of Congress in a timely manner.

                           Weapons Activities

Appropriations, 2017....................................  $9,245,567,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................  10,239,344,000
Committee recommendation................................  10,000,071,000

    The Committee recommends $10,000,071,000 for Weapons 
Activities, a decrease of $239,273,000 below the budget 
request, to ensure the safety, security, reliability, and 
effectiveness of the Nation's nuclear weapons stockpile without 
the need for nuclear testing.

                        Directed Stockpile Work

    The Committee recommends $3,912,617,000 for Directed 
Stockpile Work.
    Life Extension Programs.--The Committee recommends 
$1,744,088,000 for Life Extension Programs [LEPs] and Major 
Alterations, which fully funds all LEPs and major alterations 
in the budget request, consistent with the plan of record 
approved by the Nuclear Weapons Council. NNSA needs to ensure 
that LEPs are completed on time and on budget to prevent impact 
on other high priorities, such as modernizing aging 
infrastructure, critical nonproliferation activities to combat 
nuclear terrorism, and naval nuclear propulsion.
    W76 Life Extension Program.--The Committee recommends 
$224,134,000 for the W76 LEP. Completing the W76 LEP, which 
makes up the largest share of the country's nuclear weapon 
deterrent on the most survivable leg of the Triad, is this 
Committee's highest priority for LEPs.
    B61 Life Extension Program.--The Committee recommends 
$788,572,000 for the B61 LEP. The Committee supports the 
Nuclear Weapons Council plan to retire the B83, the last 
megaton class weapon in the stockpile, by 2025.
    W88 Alt 370.--The Committee recommends $332,292,000 for the 
W88 Alt 370.
    W80-4 Life Extension Program.--The Committee recommends 
$399,090,000 for the W80-4 LEP.
    Weapons Dismantlement and Disposition.--The Committee 
recommends $56,000,000 for the dismantlement of retired nuclear 
weapons removed from the stockpile. Further, the Committee 
supports accelerated dismantlements now as a way of preparing 
its workforce for necessary stockpile production work beginning 
later this decade.
    Stockpile Systems.--The Committee recommends $475,000,000 
for stockpile systems. Funds are no longer controlled at the 
system level, but should continue to be reflected in the future 
budget requests at the system level.

           RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TECHNOLOGY, AND ENGINEERING

    The Committee recommends $1,963,962,000 for Research, 
Development, Technology, and Engineering.
    Inertial Confinement Fusion Ignition and High-Yield 
Campaign.--The Committee recommends $544,934,000 for the 
inertial confinement fusion ignition and high-yield campaign. 
Within the amount provided, $344,000,000 shall be for inertial 
confinement fusion activities at the National Ignition 
Facility, $61,600,000 shall be for Sandia National Laboratory's 
Z facility, and $75,000,000 shall be for the University of 
Rochester's Omega facility.
    Within the Inertial Confinement Fusion program, the 
Committee is concerned that NNSA's contracting practices are 
leading to instability in the target design and fabrication 
vendor base. The Committee encourages NNSA to review all 
current and planned target supply contracts to ensure its 
actions support a robust, innovative and cost-effective target 
design and fabrication capability from multiple vendors, 
including small businesses.
    Advanced Simulation and Computing.--The Committee 
recommends $734,244,000 for advanced simulation and computing. 
Within these funds, the Committee recommends no less than 
$161,000,000 for activities associated with the exascale 
initiative, such as advanced system architecture design 
contracts with vendors and advanced weapons code development to 
effectively use new high performance computing platforms.
    Advanced Manufacturing Development.--The Committee 
recommends $85,540,000 for Advanced Manufacturing Development. 
Within the amount provided, $34,896,000 is recommended for 
Process Technology Development, including $5,000,000 above the 
budget request to modernize and upgrade legacy applications at 
weapons production facilities in order to improve manufacturing 
and safety.
    Stockpile Responsiveness Program.--The Committee 
recommendation supports the important goals of the Stockpile 
Responsiveness Program. The bill includes a provision that 
provides special reprogramming authority of up to $40,000,000 
for the Stockpile Responsiveness Program, subject to the 
Committee's normal notification guidelines.
    Engineering.--The Committee supports the request to begin 
recapitalization of the NNSA's trusted strategic 
microelectronics capability. However, the Committee urges NNSA 
to maintain focus on developing a cross-government approach to 
ensure that both NNSA and multiple customer needs are 
satisfied. No later than 90 after the date of enactment of this 
act, NNSA is directed to submit a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress detailing the 
technical requirements for trusted microelectronics, an 
analysis of alternatives for meeting those requirements among 
public and private sector entities, and preliminary cost and 
schedule estimates for the various alternatives.
    Academic Alliances and Partnerships.--Within available 
funds, not less than $2,000,000 shall be for Tribal Colleges 
and Universities.

                     INFRASTRUCTURE AND OPERATIONS

    The Committee recommends $2,722,137,000 for Infrastructure 
and Operations.
    Project 06-D-141, Uranium Processing Facility, Y-12, Oak 
Ridge, Tennessee.--The Committee recommends $663,000,000 to 
continue design and engineering work as well as site readiness 
and site preparation projects for the Uranium Processing 
Facility.
    The Committee supports efforts to replace existing enriched 
uranium capabilities currently residing in Building 9212 by 
2025 for not more than $6,500,000,000. The Committee supports 
the strategy of breaking the project into more manageable sub-
projects. This practice is specifically permitted by DOE Order 
413.3B, and is a practical approach for any project of this 
magnitude. The Committee expects the Secretary to ensure full 
compliance with the Department's requirement to have a design 
that is at least 90 percent complete before approving the start 
of construction for the nuclear facilities. The Committee 
understands that the NNSA must complete enough design work 
before it can set a performance baseline for each subproject, 
which includes an accurate cost and schedule for completion.

                        DEFENSE NUCLEAR SECURITY

    The Committee recommends $691,977,000 for Defense Nuclear 
Security, within which $5,000,000 is recommended to continue 
the design work for the West End Protected Area Reduction at Y-
12.

                    Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation

Appropriations, 2017....................................  $1,902,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................   1,842,310,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,852,310,000

    The Committee recommends $1,852,310,000 for Defense Nuclear 
Nonproliferation, an increase of $10,000,000 above the budget 
request. To preserve and advance uranium and engineering 
expertise for purposes of national security and 
nonproliferation, the Committee encourages the ongoing 
collaboration between the Department's Office of Intelligence 
and the Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation program.
    Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation provides a vitally 
important component of our national security--preventing 
nuclear materials and weapons from falling into the wrong 
hands, including non-weapons nations, terrorist organizations 
and other non-state entities. This mission is challenged by an 
increasingly dangerous world with emerging and evolving 
threats, in addition to the proliferation of technologies that 
simplify production, manufacturing, and design of nuclear 
materials and weapons. The Committee recognizes the importance 
of bilateral and multilateral agreements and organizations in 
detecting, intercepting, and deterring nuclear and radiological 
threats. The Committee urges the full use of these partnerships 
to further strengthen U.S. and global security.
    Global Material Security.--The Committee recommends 
$357,108,000 for Global Material Security to increase the 
security of vulnerable stockpiles of nuclear weapons, weapons-
usable nuclear materials, and radiological materials and to 
improve partner countries' abilities to deter, detect, and 
interdict illicit trafficking.
    The Committee finds that unlike the materials needed for a 
nuclear weapon, which are located in fewer than 25 countries, 
the materials needed to build a dirty bomb can be found in 
thousands of hospitals, medical centers, research labs, and 
businesses in more than 150 countries. The most effective way 
to significantly reduce the threat of a radiological dispersal 
device, or dirty bomb, is, where feasible, to replace the 
radiological sources with safe, effective alternative 
technologies. For example, alternative x-ray technologies to 
replace cesium-137 blood irradiators are commercially 
available, offer equivalent medical outcomes, and have been 
approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. There are 
approximately 850 cesium blood and research irradiators in the 
United States, with over 500 being cesium blood irradiators. 
Therefore, within the funds provided, the Committee recommends 
not less than $20,000,000 for the Cesium Irradiator Replacement 
Program. Furthermore, the Secretary is directed to submit to 
the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress no 
later than 90 days after the date of enactment of this act a 
report on the Cesium Irradiator Replacement Program, including 
a description of progress to date in reducing the use of 
cesium-137 based irradiation devices; identification of the 
universe of cesium-137 devices, including the number, general 
location, and user type; a prioritization scheme for 
replacement of devices; and estimated annual funding needs to 
replace all devices within 10 years through the existing 
voluntary, cost-shared program with devices users.
    Materials Management and Minimization.--Within Materials 
Management and Minimization, the Committee recommends 
$130,500,000 for Conversion, of which no less than $40,000,000 
shall be for the Molybdenum-99 [Moly-99] program. The Committee 
continues to place a high priority on the development of 
domestic supplies of the medical isotope Moly-99 on a schedule 
adequate to meet public health needs. The Committee notes the 
need for ongoing encouragement of private sector production of 
Moly-99 without the use of highly enriched uranium. New 
entrants to the program, particularly those utilizing existing 
infrastructure at the national laboratories or other 
facilities, should be encouraged. In addition, the Committee 
has followed closely the progress of current cooperative 
agreement awardees and notes that a number of first-of-a-kind 
regulatory and technological issues have delayed and increased 
the cost of these projects. Therefore, the Secretary is 
directed to provide up to $35,000,000 or 50 percent of total 
project cost, consistent with American Medical Isotope 
Production Act provisions, whichever is less, in cost sharing 
funds for cooperative agreement awardees or award new 
cooperative agreements that leverage existing resources within 
the Department. Lastly, the NNSA shall ensure that its 
financial contributions to projects are made on a timely basis 
commensurate with the private parties' expenditures. NNSA shall 
not delay payment of matching contributions simply to remain 
involved in the projects through completion.
    Nonproliferation and Arms Control.--The Committee 
recommends $124,703,000 for Nonproliferation and Arms Control 
activities. Within available amounts, the Committee recommends 
not less than $3,000,000 for international cooperation between 
governmental and non-governmental organizations at the national 
and sub-national levels to implement robust export control 
protocols.
    Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Research and 
Development.--The Committee recommends $436,095,000 for Defense 
Nuclear Nonproliferation Research and Development. The 
Committee supports a robust research and development capability 
to support nonproliferation initiatives. Proliferation of 
illicit nuclear materials and weapons continues to be a high-
consequence threat, and our ability to detect the production 
and movement of these materials is vitally important. Research 
and development in this area is especially important. The 
Committee recommendation also supports continued research and 
development of novel enrichment technologies to support 
nonproliferation goals, and recommends $2,000,000 for this 
purpose.
    MOX Construction.--The Committee recommends $270,000,000, 
and supports the budget request proposal to terminate the 
construction of the MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility as early as 
practicable. No funds are provided to continue construction of 
the MOX Fuel Fabrication facility.

                             Naval Reactors

Appropriations, 2017....................................  $1,419,813,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................   1,479,751,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,436,651,000

    The Committee recommends $1,436,651,000 for Naval Reactors, 
a decrease of $43,100,000 below the budget request. The 
Committee's recommendation fully funds important national 
priorities, including the Columbia-class replacement submarine 
design and the prototype refueling. Naval Reactors relies on 
high-enriched uranium from weapons that have been removed from 
the stockpile to fuel the Navy's aircraft carriers and 
submarines. The Committee directs Naval Reactors to provide a 
report to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress on the long-term sustainability of high-enriched 
uranium for Naval Reactor Propulsion for the Navy. The report 
shall include any impacts that may arise from changes to the 
shipbuilding plan under consideration and any outcomes of the 
Nuclear Posture Review. The report shall be provided within 60 
days after completion of the Nuclear Posture Review.

               COLUMBIA-CLASS REACTOR SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommends $156,700,000 for Columbia-Class 
Reactor Systems Development. Funds for this program were 
included last year as Ohio-Class Replacement Reactor Systems 
Development. Columbia-class submarines must be delivered on 
time to maintain our survivable deterrent. The Committee 
directs Naval Reactors to provide a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress by February 1, 2018, 
that outlines key technical risks to delivering the lead 
submarine on time, and mitigation strategies for those risks. 
At a minimum, the report shall include qualification of the 
fuel design and any major components in the propulsion plant.

                       NAVAL REACTORS DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommends $461,267,000 for Naval Reactors 
Development. Within the funds provided, the Committee 
recommends $70,000,000 for the Advanced Test Reactor.
    Future Fuel Systems.--The Committee directs Naval Reactors 
to provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress by June 1, 2018, on its plans to design 
improved fuel systems. The report shall include any planned 
efforts to design a low enriched uranium fuel system, including 
the linkage between any planned future fuel system and a Navy 
fleet requirement. The report shall also discuss planned needs 
and schedule for irradiation testing and post irradiation 
examination.

                              CONSTRUCTION

    The Committee recommends $117,700,000 for Construction. 
Within available funds, the Committee recommends $102,000,000 
for the Spent Fuel Handling Facility in Idaho and $15,000,000 
for the Fire System Upgrade at KAPL.

                     Federal Salaries And Expenses

Appropriations, 2017....................................    $390,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................     418,595,000
Committee recommendation................................     396,000,000

    The Committee recommends $396,000,000, a decrease of 
$22,595,000 below the budget request.

                     Defense Environmental Cleanup

Appropriations, 2017....................................  $5,405,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................   5,537,186,000
Committee recommendation................................   5,579,968,000

    The Committee recommendation for Defense Environmental 
Cleanup is $5,579,968,000, an increase of $42,782,000 above the 
budget request. Within available funds, the Department is 
directed to fund the Hazardous Waste Worker Training Program.
    Future Budget Requests.--The Committee directs the 
Department to include out-year funding projections in the 
annual budget request for Environmental Management, and an 
estimate of the total cost and time to complete each site.
    Richland.--The Committee recognizes that significant 
progress has been made at the Hanford Site, including 984 
contaminated waste sites remediated, 18 million tons of 
contaminated soil and debris removed, 2,300 tons of spent 
nuclear fuel removed and placed in dry storage, 16 billion 
gallons of contaminated groundwater remediated, and 428 
facilities demolished. The Committee recommends $826,192,000 
for Richland Operations to continue critical cleanup work and 
ensure compliance with Tri-Party Agreement milestones. 
Additional funding is provided for cleanup of the 300-296 waste 
site, risk-reduction activities associated with legacy waste 
sites, K-West facility cleanup and deactivation, and community 
and regulatory support. Within available funds in the River 
Corridor control point, the Department is directed to carry out 
maintenance and public safety efforts at the B Reactor, the 
Manhattan Project National Historical Park, and the Hazardous 
Materials Management and Emergency Response facilities. 
Further, within available funds the Department is directed to 
work with contractors, labor, and the State of Washington to 
establish a resource center to provide education and advocacy 
to current and former Hanford employees on all available 
Federal and State compensation programs.
    NNSA Sites.--The Committee recommends $283,240,000 for NNSA 
sites. Within available funds, the Committee recommends 
$217,529,000 for cleanup at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
    Oak Ridge Reservation.--The Committee recommends 
$275,219,000 for the Oak Ridge Reservation, including 
$10,000,000 to support preliminary design of a new landfill for 
the Oak Ridge Reservation. The existing on-site disposal 
facility is expected to reach capacity before all cleanup 
activities are completed. Planning for a new landfill is 
necessary to ensure that there is no interruption of cleanup 
activities. Within funds available for Cleanup and Waste 
Disposition, the Committee recommends $52,000,000 for 
continuing transuranic waste processing and storage to meet 
contractual and regulatory commitments.
    U-233 Disposition Program.--The Committee recommends 
$50,311,000 for the cleanup of Building 3019. Removal of legacy 
material from this building, an aging facility in the heart of 
the Oak Ridge National Laboratory central campus, must remain a 
high priority for the Department. Removal of the Uranium 233 
will enable the overall security posture at the laboratory to 
be relaxed, which will reduce costs and eliminate nuclear 
safety issues, and make the campus more conducive to 
collaborative science. The Committee encourages the Department 
to seek opportunities to expedite cleanup of Building 3019, 
including public private partnerships that may reduce the 
overall cost of cleanup.
    Mercury Treatment Facility.--The Committee recommends 
$17,100,000 for the Outfall 200 Mercury Treatment Facility. 
Remediation of mercury contamination at the Oak Ridge 
Reservation is an important precursor to full site remediation. 
Reducing the mercury being released into the East Fork of 
Poplar Creek continues to be a high priority for the 
Environmental Management program.
    Office of River Protection.--The Committee recommends 
$1,590,000,000 for the Office of River Protection. Funds above 
the budget request are provided to resume full engineering, 
procurement, and construction work on the High-Level Waste 
Treatment facility, to resolve the five remaining technical 
issues on the Pre-Treatment facility, to ensure compliance with 
the 2016 Consent Decree and Tri-Party Agreement milestones, and 
to continue tank waste retrievals.
    The Committee recognizes the Department's efforts to 
improve working conditions in the tank farms and address 
chemical vapor exposures by implementing recommendations from 
the 2014 Hanford Tank Vapor Assessment Report. The Committee is 
aware of three subsequent reviews conducted by the Department's 
Office of the Inspector General and Office of Enterprise 
Assessments, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety 
and Health. Within available funds in the Tank Farms Activities 
control point, the Department is directed to continue ongoing 
work to address chemical vapor exposures, implement 
recommendations from the three additional reviews, and maintain 
a safe work environment for Hanford employees.
    Savannah River Site.--The Committee recommends 
$1,260,000,000 for the Savannah River site. Within available 
funds, $3,000,000 is for disposition of spent fuel from the 
High Flux Isotope Reactor. The Committee is concerned there is 
a lack of coordination and consistency among the Office of 
Environmental Management, NNSA, and the Office of Management 
and Budget when planning for retiree pension payments at the 
Savannah River Site. The Department is directed to provide a 
report to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress with the fiscal year 2019 budget request that 
describes the assumptions made in determining the anticipated 
retiree pension payments, including the anticipated out-year 
costs for retiree pension payments. The report shall also 
include the Department's plan for ensuring the Savannah River 
Site out-year retiree pension obligations are met, including 
any proposed changes in the manner funding is projected or 
requested.
    Idaho.--The Committee recommends $350,226,000 for cleanup 
of Idaho National Laboratory. The Committee remains concerned 
about the lack of progress in starting operations at the 
Integrated Waste Treatment Unit. Completed in 2012 at a cost of 
$571,000,000, the facility is intended to treat 900,000 gallons 
of sodium-bearing radioactive waste. Unfortunately, design 
flaws and other problems have led to another $281,000,000 being 
spent without startup of the facility. Treating this waste is 
necessary for cleanup of the Idaho site and to meet regulatory 
commitments to the State.
    Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.--The Committee recommends 
$300,971,000 for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant [WIPP]. Worker 
safety must continue to be a priority for the Department and 
its contractors, and the Committee encourages the Secretary to 
not prioritize waste emplacement schedules over safe operations 
and infrastructure improvements at the facility. The Committee 
recommends $10,000,000 above the budget request to address 
maintenance backlog issues. The restart of limited operations 
and the ongoing improvements to site infrastructure at the WIPP 
facility provide an opportunity to assess the status of current 
and future disposal requirements. The Committee directs the 
Secretary to submit to the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress not later than 90 days after the date of 
enactment of this act a long-term, consolidated plan for 
disposing of waste at WIPP. The plan shall include an analysis 
of the remaining capacity of WIPP under volumetric and 
radionuclide caps authorized under the Land Withdrawal Act. The 
plan shall also include an analysis of current and future waste 
streams that are eligible for disposal in WIPP and shall 
include steps to be taken to involve the state of New Mexico in 
any recommended changes.
    Excess Facilities.--The Committee supports efforts to 
address the backlog of excess, high-risk facilities in the 
nuclear weapons complex. The Committee recommends $55,000,000 
for this effort. Within available funds, $15,000,000 shall be 
for planning and permitting for cleanup of facilities at 
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and $40,000,000 shall be 
for cleanup of facilities at the Y-12 National Security 
Complex.
    Safeguards and Security.--The Committee recommends 
$304,102,000 for safeguards and security activities at cleanup 
sites, within which $43,342,000 is for cybersecurity 
activities.
    Technology Development and Demonstration.--The Committee 
recommends $25,000,000 for Technology Development and 
Demonstration. The Committee supports the Department's efforts 
to expand technology development and demonstration to address 
its long-term and technically complex cleanup challenges. 
Further, the Committee supports the Department's efforts to 
award merit-based research at the national laboratories to 
address long-term cleanup mission needs. The Committee believes 
it is in the best interest of all sites that these funds are 
competitively awarded and managed by Department of Energy 
Headquarters. Within the amount provided, no less than 
$5,000,000 shall be made available for work on qualification, 
testing and research to advance the state of the art on 
containment ventilation systems. Further, the Department is 
directed to take the necessary steps to implement and 
competitively award a cooperative university affiliated 
research center for that purpose. No new funds are provided for 
the National Spent Fuel Database. This effort should be funded 
within the Office of Nuclear Energy.

     Defense Uranium Enrichment Decontamination and Decommissioning

Appropriations, 2017....................................    $563,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................................
Committee recommendation................................     788,000,000

    The Committee recommends $788,000,000 to fully offset the 
fiscal year 2018 appropriation for the Uranium Enrichment 
Decontamination and Decommissioning account.

                        Other Defense Activities

Appropriations, 2017....................................    $784,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................     815,512,000
Committee recommendation................................     784,000,000

    The Committee recommends $784,000,000 for Other Defense 
Activities, a decrease of $31,512,000 from the budget request. 
Within available funds, the Committee recommends $238,170,000 
for Specialized Security Activities. Within the funds available 
for Environment, Health and Safety, the Committee recommends 
not less than $1,000,000 for the Epidemiologic Study of One 
Million U.S. Radiation Workers and Veterans, which was 
originally approved by the Office of Science in 2012.

                    POWER MARKETING ADMINISTRATIONS

    The Committee recognizes the important role the Power 
Marketing Administrations play in delivering affordable power, 
maintaining grid reliability, and supporting the Nation's 
Federal multipurpose water projects. The Department's proposal 
to divest the transmission assets of the Bonneville Power 
Administration, Southwestern Power Administration, and Western 
Area Power Administration could increase costs for millions of 
consumers, decrease grid reliability, and reduce services to 
rural communities. Further, the Committee notes the 
Department's proposal violates the Urgent Supplemental 
Appropriations Act, 1986 (Public Law 99-349) which prevents the 
use of any Federal funding by the executive branch to solicit 
proposals, prepare or review studies, or draft proposals 
designed to ``transfer out of Federal ownership, management or 
control in whole or in part the facilities and functions of the 
Federal power marketing administrations located within the 
contiguous 48 States, and the Tennessee Valley Authority'' 
unless explicitly authorized by an Act of Congress. Therefore, 
the Committee rejects the Department's proposal and directs the 
Department to fully comply with existing Federal law.
    In addition, there have been questions raised by the 
Congressional Budget Office and others as to whether the Power 
Marketing Administrations have the legal authority to execute 
the current receipt authority provided in this and prior year 
appropriations acts to create carryover of unobligated balances 
for purchase power and wheeling expenditures. The Committee 
includes a general provision requiring a report, using specific 
receipts data and legal authorities, to provide a detailed 
response to those questions. The Committee would like to 
provide the full budget request for purchase power and wheeling 
expenditures, but until the Committee receives information 
confirming these funds are being properly executed, the 
Committee will continue to be unable to do so.

                                TITLE IV

                          INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

    The budget request proposes to eliminate several 
independent agencies, including the Appalachian Regional 
Commission, Delta Regional Authority, Denali Commission, and 
Northern Border Regional Commission. The budget requests 
funding to conduct closeout of the agencies in fiscal year 
2018. The Committee strongly opposes the termination of these 
agencies, and recommends funding to continue their activities. 
The Administration shall continue all activities funded by this 
Act, as well as follow directive language included in this 
report. No funds shall be used for the planning of or 
implementation of termination of these agencies.

                    Appalachian Regional Commission

Appropriations, 2017....................................    $152,000,000
Budget estimate, 2018...................................      26,700,000
Committee recommendation................................     142,000,000

    The Committee recommends $142,000,000 for the Appalachian 
Regional Commission [ARC]. Established in 1965, the Appalachian 
Regional Commission is an economic development agency composed 
of 13 Appalachian States and a Federal co-chair appointed by 
the President. Within available funding, $70,000,000 is 
provided for base funds.
    Further, not less than $16,000,000 shall be for a program 
of industrial site and workforce development in Southern and 
South Central Appalachia, focused primarily on the automotive 
supplier sector and the aviation sector. Up to $13,500,000 of 
that amount is recommended for activities in Southern 
Appalachia. The funds shall be distributed according to the 
Commission's Distressed Counties Formula, which is comprised of 
land area, population estimates, and a proportion of the number 
of distressed counties.
    Within available funding, the Committee recommends 
$6,000,000 for a program of basic infrastructure improvements 
in distressed counties in Central Appalachia. Funds shall be 
distributed according to ARC's distressed counties formula and 
shall be in addition to the regular allocation to distressed 
counties.
    Within available funds, the Committee recommends 
$50,000,000 for the POWER Initiative to support communities, 
primarily in Appalachia, that have been adversely impacted by 
the closure of coal-powered generating plants and a declining 
coal industry by providing resources for economic 
diversification, job creation, job training, and other 
employment services.

Budget estimate, 2018...................................     135,728,000
Committee recommendation................................     106,221,000

    The Commission's mission is to ensure the safety and 
security of the nation's use of nuclear power and nuclear 
materials and protect the workers and public who use and 
benefit from these materials and facilities. The Committee 
recommends $914,137,000 for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
[Commission], a decrease of $25,000,000 from the budget 
request. The Committee's recommendation requires the use of 
$10,000,000 of unobligated balances from prior appropriations. 
This amount is offset by estimated revenues of $807,848,000, 
resulting in a net appropriation of $106,221,000. In developing 
this recommendation, the Committee has consulted with the 
Commission to ensure it maintains its gold-standard health and 
safety mission while reducing low-priority work. The Committee 
recommends that the unobligated balance of $68,076.04 provided 
to the Commission from the United States Agency for 
International Development in 1994 pursuant to section 632(a) of 
the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, for which there is no 
currently authorized use, be rescinded.
    Budget Execution Plan.--The Commission is directed to 
provide the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress with a specific budget execution plan no later than 30 
days after the date of enactment of this act. This plan shall 
provide details at the product line level within each of the 
control points, as applicable, included in the table after the 
Office of Inspector General heading below.
    Budget Control Points.--The recommendation includes budget 
control points for fiscal year 2018 to ensure the Commission's 
budget execution follows congressional intent. These budget 
control points are included in the table following the heading 
of Office of Inspector General. As it did for fiscal year 2017, 
the Committee includes statutory language incorporating the new 
control points by reference into law, and notes that any 
breaches are now subject to the reporting requirements and 
remedies of the Antideficiency Act contained in title 31 of the 
United States Code.
    Reprogramming Authority.--Section 402 continues 
reprogramming authority included in the Energy and Water 
Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017, for 
the Commission between the budget control points, subject to 
prior congressional approval, with a provision made for 
emergency circumstances. This reprogramming authority 
supersedes the Commission's existing guidance on internal 
reprogrammings.
    Unobligated Balances from Prior Appropriations.--The 
Committee notes that the Commission carries unobligated 
balances from appropriations received prior to fiscal year 
2018. The Committee's recommendation requires the use of 
$10,000,000 of these balances, derived from fee-based 
activities. Because the Commission has already collected fees 
corresponding to these activities in prior years, the Committee 
does not include these funds within the fee base calculation 
for determining authorized revenues, and does not provide 
authority to collect additional offsetting receipts for their 
use. The Committee notes that any remaining unobligated 
balances carried forward from prior years are subject to the 
reprogramming guidelines in section 402, and shall only be used 
to supplement appropriations consistent with those guidelines.
    Reductions from Efficiencies.--In the past few years, the 
Commission's budget has included potential savings identified 
by the Commission's staff based on discontinuation, de-
prioritization, or incremental reductions of activities. 
According to the Commission's staff, including these savings 
has not adversely affected the Commission's safety mission. The 
Committee applauds the Commission's reviews of its programs to 
find these efficiencies, and urges the Commission to continue 
to identify additional efficiencies in management practices, 
work control processes, and staffing.
    Integrated University Program.--The Committee recommends 
$15,000,000 for the Integrated University Program, of which not 
less than $5,000,000 is for grants to support research projects 
that do not align with programmatic missions but are critical 
to maintaining the discipline of nuclear science.
    Rulemaking.--The Committee directs the Commission to 
provide to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress within 90 days after the date of enactment of this 
act, and quarterly thereafter, an update of appendix G of the 
budget request regarding planned rulemakings.
    Reporting Requirement.--The Committee directs the 
Commission to continue the reporting required in the 
explanatory statement for the Energy and Water Development 
Appropriations Act, 2017, relating to progress against the 
Commission's licensing goals and right-sizing commitments.
    Modeling and Simulation Tools.--The continued operation of 
the nation's current fleet of nuclear power reactors is vitally 
important to our energy infrastructure. The Consortium for 
Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors [CASL] has 
developed modeling and simulation tools, including for the use 
of accident tolerant fuels, which can result in more efficient 
and cost-effective plant operations. Not later than 180 days 
after the date of enactment of this act, the Commission is 
directed to report to the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress the Commission's potential uses of CASL's 
tools in its licensing process and safety reviews.

Committee recommendation................................       2,304,000

    The Committee recommends $12,859,000 for the Office of 
Inspector General, the same as the budget request, which is 
offset by revenues estimated at $10,555,000, for a net 
appropriation of $2,304,000. The Office of Inspector General 
serves both the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Defense 
Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, and the recommendation 
includes $1,131,000 for that purpose that is not available from 
fee revenues.
    In line with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's recent 
Project Aim activities, the Committee encourages the Office of 
Inspector General to examine its own program to identify 
savings and efficiencies that could be realized within the 
Office of Inspector General without negatively impacting its 
mission.
