                       SUMMARY OF APPROPRIATIONS

    The Committee recommends total appropriations of 
$51,353,900,000 for the Department of State, foreign 
operations, and related programs for fiscal year 2018. Of this 
amount, $51,195,000,000, including $20,785,000,000 for Overseas 
Contingency Operations [OCO], is for non-emergency 
discretionary programs, and $158,900,000 is for mandatory 
programs.
    The Committee recommendation includes funds designated as 
OCO under certain account headings in titles I through IV, 
rather than in a separate title as in prior fiscal years. 
Unless otherwise noted, comparisons between funding levels in 
the act and this report to prior fiscal years, and to the 
President's budget request, include the total of base and OCO 
funds. The Committee notes that the total for OCO is equal to 
the fiscal year 2017 enacted level, including $4,300,000,000 in 
the Security Assistance Appropriations Act, 2017 (division B of 
Public Law 114-254) and $990,000,000 for famine relief included 
in the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related 
Programs Appropriations Act, 2017 (division J of Public Law 
115-31).
    Section 7086 of the act provides that funds designated as 
OCO in the act are made available without regard to geographic 
limitation.
    The Committee's recommendations for fiscal year 2018, by 
title, compared to the President's budget request, are 
allocated according to the following table:

                              INTRODUCTION

                  THE FISCAL YEAR 2018 BUDGET REQUEST

    The President is required by the Budget and Accounting Act, 
1921 (section 201 of Public Law 67-13) to submit a budget to 
the Congress that includes ``[e]stimates of the expenditures 
and appropriations necessary in his judgement for the support 
of the Government for the ensuing fiscal year.''
    On May 23, 2017, President Donald Trump submitted to the 
Congress the fiscal year 2018 budget of the United States 
[U.S.] Government entitled ``A New Foundation for American 
Greatness'', and asserted in ``The Budget Message of the 
President'' that ``[i]n these dangerous times, our increased 
attention to public safety and national security sends a clear 
message to the world--a message of American strength and 
resolve.''
    This message is not reflected in the International Affairs 
budget request of $40,521,826,000, a 30 percent cut below the 
fiscal year 2017 enacted level.
    The lessons-learned since September 11, 2001, include the 
reality that defense alone does not provide for American 
strength and resolve abroad. Battlefield technology and 
firepower cannot replace diplomacy and development. The 
administration's apparent doctrine of retreat, which also 
includes distancing the United States from collective and 
multilateral dispute resolution frameworks, serves only to 
weaken America's standing in the world.
    Richard Haass, former Director of Policy and Planning at 
the Department of State, warns in ``A World in Disarray: 
American Foreign Policy and the Crisis of the Old Order'' that 
an abrupt change in U.S. engagement in the world ``is a 
prescription for greater instability at the regional level, 
less concerted action at the global level, and heightened 
chance for great-power competition''. This dynamic is already 
unfolding.

                                  ***

    The Office of Management and Budget [OMB] arbitrarily set 
the topline funding level for the International Affairs budget 
without input from the Department of State, the U.S. Agency for 
International Development [USAID], the National Security 
Council, or any other national security agency. This forced the 
Department of State and USAID to randomly establish country and 
program-level allocations that lacked any justification.
    When the budget was publicly released, the absence of a 
communications strategy caused confusion and concern in foreign 
capitals regarding the proposed, unjustified cuts--and allowed 
America's competitors, notably the People's Republic of China 
[PRC] and Russia, to hijack our national security narrative.
    At the macro level, the budget proposes to eliminate more 
than 2,500 diplomatic and development positions. Compared to 
the prior fiscal year, diplomatic security is cut by 36 
percent; international HIV/AIDS programs are reduced by 17 
percent; International Disaster Assistance and food aid is cut 
by 77 percent; and Migration and Refugee Assistance is reduced 
by 18 percent.
    At the micro level, key allies and countries of strategic 
importance were demoted or abandoned. For example, assistance 
for Georgia, a repeated target of Russian aggression, is cut by 
75 percent, and aid for Sri Lanka, strategically positioned 
along key shipping lanes and emerging from decades of conflict, 
is cut by 91 percent.
    On June 13, 2017, 16 retired four-star generals and 
admirals submitted testimony to the Committee asserting: ``The 
severe cuts to the State Department and USAID that the 
administration has proposed will make America less safe, and 
Congress should reject them.''

                                  ***

    The Center for Strategic and International Studies Task 
Force Report entitled ``Reforming and Reorganizing U.S. Foreign 
Assistance: Increased Efficiency and Effectiveness'' (July 
2017) provides a more thoughtful and realistic approach to 
improving America's foreign policy architecture and programs 
than the reckless cuts proposed in the International Affairs 
budget request. The report succinctly underscores the 
importance of foreign assistance:

        In the last 70 years alone, U.S. foreign assistance has 
        helped to rebuild Europe and launch the economic 
        successes of the East Asia tigers. It sparked the Green 
        Revolution that brought modern agriculture to Asia, has 
        developed new trading partners, fostered democracy, 
        good governance, and free markets, reduced poverty, 
        saved lives after the 2004 tsunami, helped countries 
        respond to the Ebola pandemic, reduced malaria deaths 
        by half, and slowed the spread of HIV/AIDS.

    Diplomacy and development remain cost effective national 
security tools. In fiscal year 2016, International Affairs 
funding totaled 1 percent of the Federal budget, compared to 
18.9 percent for Defense spending. In fiscal year 2017, the 
budget totaled 0.3 percent of Gross Domestic Product, compared 
to 3.3 percent for Defense. In terms of manpower, the 
Department of Defense workforce is 26 times larger than that of 
the Department of State and USAID combined.
    Despite the critical role of diplomacy and development in 
our national security framework, the Department of State, 
foreign operations, and related programs act remains an 
assemblage of annual bills and emergency supplemental or OCO 
funding. As the Committee noted in the Introduction to Senate 
Report 114-79 accompanying the Department of State, Foreign 
Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2016 (S. 
1725, as reported to the Senate on July 9, 2015):

        [f]rom fiscal years 2002 to 2010, the appropriations 
        process for Department of State operations and foreign 
        assistance under the jurisdiction of the subcommittee 
        included a patchwork of 9 annual bills and 14 emergency 
        supplemental appropriations acts. . . . In fiscal year 
        2012, OCO funding replaced most emergency supplemental 
        spending, and the act has included OCO appropriations 
        in every fiscal year since.

                                  ***

    To help rebalance the U.S. national security framework and 
require clarity from the administration on its foreign policy 
and grand strategy, section 7069(a) of the act requires the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the USAID 
Administrator and the heads of other relevant Federal 
departments and agencies, to submit to the appropriate 
congressional committees a comprehensive National Diplomacy and 
Development Strategy [NDDS]. The requirements for the NDDS are 
similar to those in the National Diplomacy and Development 
Strategy Act of 2017 (S. 1228, as introduced in the Senate on 
May 24, 2017), and are further explained under title VII of 
this report.
    Section 7069(b) of the act requires the Secretary of State 
to submit to the appropriate congressional committees an update 
to the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review, 2015 not 
later than January 31, 2019.

                                  ***

    Article I, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution states that 
``No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence 
of Appropriations made by Law.'' As President Franklin D. 
Roosevelt noted during a press conference on July 23, 1937 
regarding Federal spending ``[i]t is the duty of the President 
to propose and it is the privilege of the Congress to 
dispose.''
    Therefore, the Committee recommends discretionary 
appropriations of $51,195,000,000, which is $10,673,174,000 
above the President's fiscal year 2018 budget request, for the 
Department of State, foreign operations, and related programs, 
details of which are included in the act and this report.

7023 of the act shall apply to the accounts listed in that 
section. In carrying out any Presidential sequestration, 
Federal departments and agencies funded by the act shall 
conform to the definition of ``program, project, and activity'' 
described above.
    Regular Notification Procedures.--Funds in the act that are 
made available ``subject to the regular notification procedures 
of the Committees on Appropriations'' require a separate 
notification to the Committee 15 days prior to the proposed 
obligation of funds or other action that is the subject of the 
notification requirement, regardless of what may be contained 
in a department or agency's congressional budget justification 
[CBJ] or in the operating and spend plans required by section 
7076 of the act. Thus, such CBJs and operating and spend plans 
do not suffice as justification for purposes of satisfying such 
notification requirement.

             CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET REQUEST AND JUSTIFICATION

    Fiscal year budgets proposed by the President during 
political transitions often lack the detail and substance 
required by the Committee for comprehensive review and 
consideration of proposed allocations. Therefore, OMB shall 
ensure that sufficient documentation and justification is 
provided to the Committee by each relevant Federal department 
and agency in subsequent fiscal year CBJs, including a 
description of the processes by which the budget was 
formulated. The Committee remains concerned with the lack of 
input from any national security agency in the establishment of 
the fiscal year 2018 topline funding levels for programs and 
activities funded by the act.
    OMB shall also ensure that CBJ materials for fiscal year 
2019 include sufficient justification and funding, and specific 
plans, for winding down any assistance programs proposed to be 
significantly reduced or terminated.
    Each Federal department and agency funded by the act shall 
include in subsequent CBJs detailed information on all 
available resources, including estimated prior year unobligated 
balances and recoveries, reimbursable agreements, funds 
transferred pursuant to sections 632(a) and (b) of the Foreign 
Assistance Act of 1961 [FAA], and significant uses of the 
Economy Act. Such departments and agencies that use a Working 
Capital Fund [WCF] shall include in CBJs the total budgetary 
resources for each office that receives funds from a WCF, and 
include a table on WCF resources that will serve as a baseline 
for reprogramming and transfer purposes.
    Subsequent CBJs shall also include estimated savings from 
any proposed office or mission closing or reorganization, 
elimination of special envoys and other senior level special 
representatives, and actual prior year representation expenses 
for each department and agency that is authorized such 
expenses.

                    COUNTRIES AND ISSUES OF CONCERN

    To align more clearly with the Joint Explanatory Statement 
accompanying division J of Public Law 115-31, countries and 
issues of concern are included under the relevant general 
provisions in title VII of this report.

                       NOTWITHSTANDING AUTHORITY

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

                 OVERSIGHT, MONITORING, AND EVALUATION

    Foreign Assistance Data Review Findings Report.--The 
Secretary of State shall update the report required under this 
heading in Senate Report 114-290 accompanying the Department of 
State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations 
Act, 2017 (S. 3117, as reported to the Senate on June 29, 
2016), and submit such report to the Committee in the manner 
described.
    Public Posting of Office of Inspector General 
Recommendations.--The Committee supports efforts by the 
Department of State Office of Inspector General [OIG] to 
improve public access to information and streamline 
congressional oversight by posting unclassified OIG 
recommendations online and regularly updating the status of 
such recommendations. The USAID OIG shall undertake a similar 
effort, and report to the Committee on steps taken to do so not 
later than 45 days after enactment of the act.
    Report on Monitoring and Evaluation of Programs.--The 
Committee underscores the importance of monitoring and 
evaluating the effectiveness of foreign assistance programs. 
Independent evaluations, including impact evaluations when 
appropriate, of such programs are an important method for 
improving performance and ensuring that taxpayer resources are 
spent efficiently and effectively. However, the Committee is 
concerned that the quality of foreign assistance program 
evaluations varies widely, and the findings and recommendations 
of evaluations do not always inform program design, policy 
decisions, and budget allocations. Moreover, monitoring and 
evaluation processes often do not incorporate sufficient local 
data, feedback, and participation of beneficiaries, and 
comparable standards are not consistently applied across the 
full range of foreign assistance programs.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, and 
following consultation with the Committee, the Secretary of 
State and USAID Administrator shall jointly initiate a review 
of the quality of program evaluations, including: (1) the 
extent to which the sustainability of programs will be 
periodically evaluated after assistance for such program has 
ended; (2) the resources required to conduct such evaluations; 
and (3) the utilization of such evaluations in subsequent 
program design. Not later than 45 days after such review has 
been concluded, the findings shall be published on the 
Department of State and USAID Web sites.
    Rule Making.--The Committee again notes the Department of 
State has, at times, loosely interpreted the Administrative 
Procedures Act of 1946 (5 U.S.C. 551 et seq.) when using an 
exception to the publishing of a proposed rulemaking related to 
a function of foreign affairs. The Committee notes that the 
exception should only be used if public rulemaking provisions 
``would clearly provoke definitely undesirable international 
consequences''.

               REDUCING COSTS AND INCREASING EFFICIENCIES

    Consistent with prior fiscal years, the Committee supports 
Federal department and agency efforts to reduce costs and 
increase efficiencies through coherent, deliberative, and 
inclusive processes that take into consideration the impact of 
such efforts to U.S. national security requirements.
    Contractor Bonuses.--Federal departments and agencies 
funded by the act shall refrain from providing bonuses to 
government contractors that have failed to complete their 
contract in a satisfactory manner, including as a result of 
scheduling delays or cost overruns.
    Executive Meetings, Ceremonies, and Conferences.--Federal 
departments and agencies funded by the act shall continue to 
achieve savings by reducing the costs of executive meetings, 
ceremonies, and conferences, and curtailing the purchase of 
commemorative or promotional items.
    Federally Funded Research.--The Committee commends USAID 
for issuing the ``Public Access Plan: Increasing Access to the 
Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research'' (November 
2016), and encourages USAID to continue to fully implement the 
plan. The USAID Administrator shall update the Committee not 
later than 90 days after the enactment of the act on progress 
made in this effort.
    Government Accountability Office Recommendations.--Not 
later than 45 days after enactment of the act, the Comptroller 
General of the United States shall submit a report to the 
appropriate congressional committees, the Secretary of State, 
and the USAID Administrator detailing all outstanding 
recommendations included in U.S. Government Accountability 
Office [GAO] reports issued during calendar years 2015 through 
2016 relating to the Department of State and USAID. Not later 
than 30 days after the submission of such report, the Secretary 
and Administrator shall submit a response to the Comptroller 
General and such committees on actions taken, or to be taken, 
to comply with such recommendations.

         REORGANIZATION OR REDESIGN OF THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE

    The process by which the Department of State and USAID 
intend to reorganize lacks clarity. Questions posed by the 
Committee remain largely unanswered, including the request for 
supporting data regarding a specific recommendation in the 
``U.S. Department of State Listening Report'' (June 2017) to 
move ``issuance of passports, visas, and other travel 
documents'' from the Department of State to the Department of 
Homeland Security. The August 28, 2017, notification on special 
envoys and representatives raises further questions on the 
integrity of the process, as the Committee notes that any 
proposal for significant personnel changes should be a 
component of the reorganization or redesign.
    In contrast to the current reorganization or redesign 
effort are the reflections on reorganization contained in the 
``Report on the Organization of the Department of State'' 
(1946):

        This study deliberately refrains from suggesting any 
        magical remedy or broad plan of reorganization designed 
        to cure all ills. Changes are needed, but they should 
        not be prescribed until an accurate diagnosis is made 
        of what is wrong. This study, it is believed, is the 
        essential forerunner of change. It seeks to present the 
        problem and thereby evoke thought and discussion. It 
        aims to present historical background and details in 
        the hope that future organizational changes will be 
        made with more conscious thought and understanding by 
        those responsible for leadership in the Department.

    The Committee is concerned that the administration has a 
predetermined outcome for the reorganization or redesign.

                REPORTS, NOTIFICATIONS, AND SPEND PLANS

    Section 7019(b) of the act requires that reporting 
requirements in this report shall be fulfilled in the manner 
described.
    Congressional notifications submitted by the Secretary of 
State and USAID Administrator for funds that are being 
reallocated prior to initial obligation, reprogrammed, or 
reobligated after deobligation, should, to the maximum extent 
practicable, contain detailed information about the sources of 
funds and why such funds are no longer intended to be used as 
previously justified.
    The submission by the Department of State and USAID of one 
spend plan per account for each program for which a spend plan 
has been required has not achieved the intended purpose of 
improving oversight of funds. Spend plans submitted pursuant to 
section 7076 of the act shall: (1) be submitted in the form of 
a single, comprehensive spend plan for each program identified; 
(2) include all intended sources of funds made available by the 
act for such program; (3) and conform to the definition of such 
plan under section 7034(r)(6) of the act.

                 TRANSFER AND REPROGRAMMING AUTHORITIES

    The Committee continues transfer and reprogramming 
authorities under the D&CP;, EDCS, and DCA headings, and in 
sections 7004(f); 7005; 7009; 7013(d); 7014; 7015(i); 
7034(b)(12); 7034(i); 7041(h); 7045(a)(5); 7045(b)(4); 7057(d); 
7058(c); 7060(a)(1)(A); 7061(a); and 7070(d) of the act.
    In addition, the FAA provides the President with broad 
transfer and reprogramming authorities in sections 109 (22 
U.S.C. 2151g); 451 (22 U.S.C. 2261); 492(b) (22 U.S.C. 2292a); 
506 (22 U.S.C. 2318); 610 (22 U.S.C. 2360); 614 (22 U.S.C. 
2364); 632 (22 U.S.C. 2392); and 634A (22 U.S.C. 2394-1).
    Section 7019(a) of the act requires, with certain 
exceptions, that amounts designated in the respective tables 
referenced in this report shall be made available in such 
designated amounts and shall be the basis of the report 
required by section 653(a) of the FAA, where applicable. 
Federal departments and agencies funded in the act shall notify 
the Committee of any reprogramming, as required by section 7015 
of the act, at the most detailed level of the CBJ, the act, or 
this report.

        CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET AND IMPOUNDMENT CONTROL ACT OF 1974

    The Committee is mindful of the discretion granted in law 
to Federal departments and agencies to oversee the execution of 
budgets. This discretion must be exercised consistent with all 
legal requirements and the expectations and intent of the 
Congress as expressed in the act and this report. Supreme Court 
decisions (especially Train v. City of New York (420 U.S. 
35)(1975)) and the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control 
Act of 1974 (title X of Public Law 93-344) [CBICA], limit the 
authority of the administration to reduce or withhold funding 
provided in law by action or inaction. Specifically, CBICA 
allows funds to be withheld only for a limited time if certain 
reporting requirements are observed, but any permanent action 
to reduce budget authority or prevent the obligation or 
expenditure of funds requires passage of legislation to that 
effect.
    The Committee expects the heads of departments and agencies 
funded by the act to be familiar with the requirements of CBICA 
in considering the management and expenditure of funds 
appropriated by the act.

     Human Resources.--The Committee recommends $2,679,633,000 
for all U.S. direct hire salaries at overseas and domestic U.S. 
diplomatic missions including $134,613,000 for Public Diplomacy 
salary and benefit costs.
    Funds appropriated under this heading shall support not 
less than 14,000 Foreign Service Officer [FSO] positions and 
not less than 11,000 Civil Service positions (excluding 
political appointees), which were the onboard Foreign Service 
and Civil Service levels as of September 30, 2016. Any proposed 
changes to these levels requires prior consultation with the 
Committee, and submission to the Committee of a detailed report 
explaining the reasons for such changes.
    The Secretary of State shall continue A-100 entry-level 
classes for FSOs in a manner similar to prior years. The 
Committee notes that absent continuous recruitment and training 
of FSOs the Department of State will lack experienced, 
qualified diplomats in the mid- and long-terms. The decision to 
suspend or cancel A-100 classes shall be subject to the regular 
notification procedures of the Committee.
    Overseas Programs.--The Committee recommends $1,823,656,000 
for the operational programs of Department of State regional 
bureaus, which are responsible for the conduct and 
implementation of U.S. foreign policy through bilateral and 
multilateral engagements. Funds support U.S. embassies, 
consulates, and other diplomatic posts worldwide, and provide 
myriad services to U.S. citizens living, working, studying, and 
traveling abroad, including those who are arrested and 
imprisoned in foreign countries.
    The Secretary of State shall continue funding overseas 
inflation and Locally Employed Staff [LES] wage increases, 
including, as necessary, funds to annualize increases provided 
in fiscal year 2017, through funds made available in the Buying 
Power Maintenance account.
    Diplomatic Policy and Support.--The Committee recommends 
$774,957,000 for the operational programs of the Department of 
State functional bureaus to provide overall policy direction, 
coordination, and program management among U.S. missions 
abroad.
    Security Programs.--The Committee recommends $3,302,452,000 
for the operation of security programs, including 
$3,279,995,000 for WSP to protect diplomatic personnel, 
overseas diplomatic missions, information, residences, and 
domestic facilities. An additional $476,879,000 is included 
within the Human Resources function for salaries for a total of 
$3,756,874,000 for WSP.

                            EMBASSY SECURITY

    The Committee recommends a total of $5,814,174,000 for 
Embassy security, $915,000,000 above the President's budget 
request and equal to the level recommended by the Benghazi 
Accountability Review Board [ARB]. Funds are allocated 
according to the following table:

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

    Section 7004(f) of the act provides the Secretary of State 
with the necessary flexibility to transfer funds between the 
D&CP; and ESCM headings to implement the recommendation of the 
Benghazi ARB or to prevent or respond to security situations 
and requirements at diplomatic facilities abroad, following 
consultation with the Committee.
    Not later than 45 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit to the Committee the status of 
Department of State implementation of GAO recommendations 
contained in ``Embassy Evacuations: State Department Should 
Take Steps to Improve Emergency Preparedness'' (July 2017) 
(GAO-17-714).

                             PROGRAM ISSUES

    Bureau of Arctic Affairs Feasibility Study.--Not later than 
180 days after the enactment of the act, the Secretary of State 
shall submit to the Committee a feasibility study on 
establishing a Bureau of Arctic Affairs, headed by an Assistant 
Secretary of State for Arctic Affairs, to take the lead in 
developing, coordinating, and carrying out U.S. foreign policy 
in the Arctic. The study shall address options for the 
appropriate placement of the Bureau within the organizational 
structure of the Department of State, and a framework for 
ensuring coordination with existing regional and functional 
bureaus on the full range of Arctic issues, including the 
resources required to establish such Bureau and the impact on 
personnel.
    In addition, the Secretary shall concurrently submit a 
report to the Committee assessing accomplishments made during 
the U.S. chairmanship of the Arctic Council, along with a 
roadmap for the future of the Council pursuant to the Fairbanks 
Declaration's guidance on developing a strategic plan for 
consideration in 2019, and including options for increasing the 
capacity of the Arctic Council Secretariat and the Secretariats 
of the Arctic Council Working Groups. The Secretary shall 
consult with the Committee prior to submitting the report and 
roadmap.
    Cultural Heritage.--The Committee recommends $6,500,000 for 
Cultural Heritage programs, including not less than five large-
scale projects, and up to $500,000 for emergency response to 
stabilize and protect from further desecration cultural 
heritage sites and antiquities that have been damaged by armed 
conflict, natural disaster, or the actions of extremists. The 
Committee recognizes the public diplomacy role of this program, 
as well as its contribution to preserving some of the world's 
irreplaceable cultural heritage sites and antiquities. As in 
the past, the Department of State shall consult with the 
Committee prior to obligating funds for such purposes.
    The Committee recommends $1,000,000 for the Cultural 
Antiquities Task Force, which may be used for grants as 
authorized in section 7034(d)(3) of the act.
    Cybersecurity Report.--Not later than 90 days after 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall submit to 
the appropriate congressional committees an unclassified 
report, which may include a classified annex, that describes: 
(1) the steps the Department of State has taken since January 
1, 2017 to improve the security of its classified and 
unclassified networks; (2) the cyber defense practices used by 
the Department; (3) the accountability structure for preventing 
intrusions into the Department's network and protecting the 
confidentiality of information on government-issued mobile 
devices abroad; (4) the intrusions into the Department's 
classified and unclassified networks during the previous 2 
years, and steps the Department of State has taken to reduce 
the risk of subsequent intrusions; and (5) the steps taken by 
the Secretary of State to engage the global community on 
expected and acceptable cyber practices in the conduct of 
diplomacy.
    Delegation of Authority.--The Committee believes that 
rescinding delegations of authority from the Secretary of State 
and the USAID Administrator to other senior level officials 
will impede the conduct of diplomacy and development abroad, as 
well as the basic operations of the Department of State and 
USAID.
    Department of State Workforce Diversity.--The Committee 
recommends continued expansion of Department of State workforce 
diversity programs, and directs that qualified graduates of the 
Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship Program and 
the Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship Program 
shall be inducted into the Foreign Service.
    Diplomatic Presence in Greenland.--Not later than 180 days 
after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall submit 
to the Committee a report assessing the costs and benefits of 
establishing a diplomatic presence in Greenland. The study 
shall consider the future benefits and challenges for the 
United States should Greenland become an independent nation 
within the next decade.
    Directorate of Defense Trade Controls.--The Secretary of 
State shall make publicly available on the Department of State 
Web site information regarding manufacturer annual registration 
fees received by category, the Department of State fund to 
which such fees are deposited, the annual balance of such fund, 
and a description of expenditures from such fund, including the 
amount and purpose of such expenditures. The Committee notes 
that the Department of State does not have an exemption for 
registration and other fees for the manufacturers of defense 
articles that do not export or import goods.
    Eligible Family Member Employment.--The Committee 
recognizes the added-value of eligible family member [EFM] 
employment at diplomatic facilities abroad to the Department of 
State, USAID, and other Federal departments and agencies that 
are traditionally located at such facilities. In many 
instances, EFM positions are paid from consular fees, other 
non-appropriated funds, or International Cooperative 
Administrative Support Services funds. The Committee believes 
that the suspension of this program by the Secretary of State 
is detrimental to the national security interest, and harmful 
to the safety and welfare of diplomats and dependents at 
embassies and consulates, particularly when positions such as 
physician assistant or security coordinator remain unfilled. 
Further, the suspension is a burden on U.S. taxpayers. For 
example, in Germany the cost associated with EFM employment is 
89 percent less than direct hires, and 25 percent less than 
LES. In Nepal, the annual cost savings associated with EFMs is 
estimated at $1,680,000.
    Not later than 45 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with a broad representation 
of Chiefs of Mission, shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees assessing the cost-savings associated 
with EFM employment at diplomatic facilities abroad. The report 
shall also detail the impact of the suspension of EFM 
employment on Embassy and Consulate operations, and on other 
Federal departments and agencies.
    Expanded Professional Associates Program.--The act provides 
funds for 250 full-time positions for the Expanded Professional 
Associates Program [EPAP], including 50 for Information 
Management. The Secretary shall staff EPAP at this level in 
fiscal year 2018, and shall consult with the Committee on the 
plan to sustain such level in subsequent fiscal years.
     Foreign Affairs Counter Threat Training.--The Foreign 
Affairs Counter Threat [FACT] training course is an essential 
training program provided to diplomatic personnel and their 
families. The Committee supports current Department of State 
plans to continue FACT training without disruption by 
maintaining such training at the Interim Training Facility 
until the new Foreign Affairs Security Training Center [FASTC] 
is fully operational. The Secretary of State shall continue to 
submit semiannual progress reports to the Committee on the 
status of FASTC, including construction costs, transition 
plans, and efforts to find alternative uses for the Interim 
Training Facility.
    Global Engagement Center.--The Committee notes that funds 
made available for the Global Engagement Center [GEC] in 
division B of Public Law 114-254 have not been obligated. In 
addition, the Secretary of State has not met the consultation 
and reporting requirements regarding the GEC under this heading 
in Senate Report 114-290. The Secretary of State shall meet 
such consultation and reporting requirements prior to the 
obligation of funds made available for the GEC by the act.

Office of the Special Envoy for Holocaust Issues shall update

describing the impact of Department of State and USAID 
personnel reductions implemented during the 1990s on the 
funding, operations, and staffing requirements of the 
Department and USAID during the period 2001 to 2016, 
particularly with respect to diplomatic operations in Iraq, 
Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other critical posts, and technical 
development expertise at USAID. The report shall include an 
analysis of the specific staff reductions by category during 
the 1990s (such as cuts to deputy assistant secretary positions 
by 25 percent, and general workforce positions by 2,200 from 
the period 1993 to 1996), and a detailed description of the 
requests by previous administrations to increase Department of 
State and USAID personnel from the period 2001 to 2016, 
including the justifications submitted to the Congress for such 
increases. The report shall conclude with an examination of 
lessons-learned from personnel reductions on diplomatic and 
development operations.
    Private Security Companies.--The Committee again notes U.S. 
leadership in developing and promoting principles, standards, 
and a code of conduct based on international law to ensure that 
private security companies operating overseas respect the rule 
of law, act in accordance with the code of conduct, and 
participate in oversight and accountability mechanisms. The 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of 
Defense, shall submit a report to the Committee not later than 
90 days after enactment of the act on efforts to ensure 
adherence to such standards by private security companies 
contracted by the Department of State, USAID, and other Federal 
departments and agencies utilizing funds appropriated by the 
act and prior acts making appropriations for the Department of 
State, foreign operations, and related programs.

heading for the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in 
Persons are in addition to funds made available by the act for 
trafficking in persons [TIP] programs.
    Worldwide Aviation Support Services.--The Committee 
underscores support for aviation services for the Department of 
State that fully meet safety and security requirements in a 
cost-effective manner, and notes with concern allegations of 
impropriety regarding the Worldwide Aviation Support Services 
contract solicitation. The Department of State OIG shall submit 
a report to the Committee detailing the extent of such 
allegations, and a determination of whether further 
investigation into the solicitation process is warranted.

prioritize critical language programs for U.S. students and 
exchange programs with countries of national security 
importance, including those with significant Muslim populations 
and the countries of the former Soviet Union.
    Cultural Property.--The Committee supports implementation 
of the Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act 
(title III of Public Law 97-446) in a manner consistent with 
prior years, including reviews conducted by the Cultural 
Property Advisory Committee pursuant to section 303(f) of such 
act to determine whether each State Party seeking or 
participating in a memorandum of understanding [MOU] with the 
United States is taking measures consistent with the Convention 
on the means of prohibiting and preventing the illicit import, 
export, and transfer of ownership of cultural property to 
protect its cultural patrimony.
    Gender and Alumni Programs.--The Committee recommends 
funding for the Alumni Thematic International Exchange Series 
and the Women in Science Girls STEAM Camp.
    J. Christopher Stevens Virtual Exchange Program.--The 
Committee continues to recognize the value of virtual exchanges 
as a means to broaden understanding and engagement between 
youth in the United States, Middle East, and North Africa in a

Christopher Stevens Virtual Exchange program. The Committee 
intends that funds are made available for this program on a 
cost-matching basis, to the maximum extent practicable.
    Muskie Fellowships.--The Committee again recognizes that 
the Muskie Fellowship Program has helped individuals from 
Eurasia and Central Asia to promote mutual understanding, build

awards for this region are designated as Edmund S. Muskie 
Fellowships.

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

    Art in Embassies Program.--Not later than 180 days after 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall update the 
report required under this heading in Senate Report 114-79, as 
necessary.
    The Secretary of State shall continue to include in 
diplomatic facility construction project notifications that 
include funds for a major purchase of art, a determination that 
such purchase is in the national interest of the United States. 
For major purchases of art that are not part of a diplomatic 
facility construction project, such determination shall be made 
and reported to the Committee prior to the obligation of funds 
for such purposes.
    Consulate Basrah, Iraq.--The Secretary of State shall 
update the report required by section 7041(c)(3)(A) of the 
Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs 
Appropriations Act, 2014 (division K of Public Law 113-76) 
regarding operational alternatives for Consulate Basrah, Iraq, 
except that the U.S. Consul General in Basrah shall be 
consulted in the preparation of the report.
    Embassy Moscow, Russia.--Not less than $160,500,000 from 
funds available in the Maintenance Security Cost Sharing 
Program shall be made available for the compound renovation 
project at Embassy Moscow, Russia. In addition, of the funds 
appropriated under this heading, $32,000,000 is made available 
for an American Center at Embassy, Moscow.
    New Embassy Compound Hiring Freeze Waivers.--Not later than 
30 days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State 
shall submit to the Committee a report detailing any request 
from a bureau of the Department of State to waive the 
Department-wide hiring freeze for the purposes of constructing, 
maintaining, and operating a New Embassy Compound [NEC]. The 
report shall include the status of such waiver requests. The 
Committee is concerned that given the substantial costs 
involved in the construction and management of NECs, the hiring 
freeze unnecessarily restricts the ability of the Department of 
State to hire competent staff necessary to construct, operate, 
and maintain such facilities.
    Operating Plans.--Section 7076 of the act requires the 
Secretary of State to submit an operating plan for funds 
appropriated under this heading, which should include all 
resources available to the Department of State in fiscal year 
2018 for operations, maintenance, and construction of 
diplomatic facilities, and an accounting of the actual and 
anticipated proceeds of sales for all projects in fiscal year 
2017.
    Review of Embassy Construction Projects.--The Committee 
notes with concern the frequency with which Embassy 
construction projects are exceeding cost and schedule estimates 
as well as proposed legislation that may restrict the 
flexibility of the Bureau of Overseas Building Operations to 
construct diplomatic facilities that support individual and 
often unique requirements.
    Not later than 180 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall review Embassy construction and 
rehabilitation processes, including project development, 
design, and construction, and submit a report to the Committee 
assessing whether the Excellence approach should be maintained 
and, if so, a description of the modifications necessary to 
ensure construction projects meet cost and schedule estimates. 
The Secretary shall consult with the Committee prior to 
initiating the review.

Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1988 and 1989

cumulative totals for the current fiscal year of the funds 
available under this heading.

in Taiwan, and an additional $1,120,000 from fees under the 
Border Security Program. The Secretary of State, in

designated for OCO.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of United States 
engagement with international organizations, including the 
United Nations [U.N.], the Organization for Economic 
Cooperation and Development, and the World Trade Organization. 
The Committee believes that fully meeting U.S. commitments to 
such organizations, combined with robust engagement to promote 
transparency and accountability to member states, is important 
to U.S. security and economic interests. The Committee 
recognizes and appreciates the leadership of the U.S. 
Ambassador to the United Nations and the U.N. Secretary-General 
in advancing reforms within the United Nations.
    Cost-Benefit Analysis.--Not later than 180 days after the 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall submit to 
the appropriate congressional committees a cost-benefit

report of U.S. contributions to international organizations 
submitted pursuant to section 4(b) of the United Nations 
Participation Act (22 U.S.C. 287b(b)). The analysis shall 
include an assessment of: (1) the extent to which the U.S. 
contribution and the mission of such organization align with 
the U.S. national interest; (2) the efficacy and cost 
effectiveness of the operations and programs conducted by such 
organization; and (3) whether the organization conducts or 
funds programs and activities similar to other organizations 
included in the report, and the extent of any such overlap. The 
Secretary of State shall consult with the Committee prior to 
conducting the cost-benefit analysis.
     Food and Agriculture Organization.--The Committee again 
encourages the Food and Agriculture Organization to work with 
land grant institutions of higher learning in the United States

$5,912,000 for the assessed costs of the International Energy

government, the Secretary of State shall review, among other 
factors, the voting practices of such government at the United 
Nations in relation to U.S. strategic interests.
    United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural 
Organization.--The Committee notes that the President's budget

Committee recommendation................................      48,134,000

    The Committee recommends $48,134,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the International Boundary and Water Commission, 
United States and Mexico.
    Report.--The Secretary of State, in consultation with the 
IBWC Commissioner, shall submit to the Committee not later than 
45 days after enactment of the act an update of the report 
required in section 7045(g)(3) of the Department of State, 
Foreign Operations, and Related Programs, 2015 (division J of 
Public Law 113-235) detailing efforts to establish mechanisms 
to improve transparency of data on, and predictability of, the 
water deliveries from Mexico to the United States to meet 
annual water apportionments to the Rio Grande, in accordance 
with the 1944 Treaty between the United States and Mexico 
Respecting Utilization of Waters of the Colorado and Tijuana 
Rivers and of the Rio Grande, and actions taken to minimize or 
eliminate future water deficits to the United States.
    Southwest Border Pollution.--The Committee is concerned 
that despite millions of dollars of U.S. infrastructure 
investments on both side of the U.S.-Mexico border over the 
past two decades, wastewater, trash, and sediment continues to 
flow from Tijuana, Mexico into San Diego County, resulting in 
unsanitary water conditions, pollution, and beach closures in 
coastal communities. The Secretary of State shall work with the 
IBWC Commissioner and the Government of Mexico to enhance 
efforts to mitigate pollution in the Tijuana River Valley, 
including to implement the recommendations from the IBWC's 
``Report of Transboundary Bypass Flows into the Tijuana River'' 
(April 2017) and to encourage the Government of Mexico to make 
additional investments to halt the discharge of waste into the 
United States.

                       MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH

    The Committee recommends $829,500,000 for maternal and 
child health activities under this heading.
    Maternal and Child Survival.--USAID shall continue to 
support programs aimed at ending preventable child and maternal 
deaths. The USAID Administrator shall submit a report to the 
Committee, which shall be posted on its Web site not later than 
December 31, 2018, detailing results in expanding evidence-
based, highest-impact interventions on a country-by-country 
basis.
    Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus.--The Committee recommends 
not less than $1,000,000 for public-private partnerships 
specifically focused on providing low-cost vaccines for women 
of childbearing age to prevent tetanus in newborn children.
    Polio.--The Committee recommends a total of not less than 
$59,000,000 in the act for polio eradication efforts, including 
not less than $7,500,000 under the ESF heading for programs for 
Pakistan and Afghanistan.
    Vaccines and Immunizations.--The Committee recommends 
$290,000,000 for a contribution to the GAVI Alliance. The USAID 
Administrator shall provide details on the planned uses of 
funds prior to making such contribution.
    Vulnerable Children.--The Committee recognizes that the 
U.S. Government Action Plan for Children in Adversity's [APCA] 
initial 5-year framework will be completed in December 2017. 
The USAID Administrator shall submit a progress report to the 
Committee including a detailed description of how the displaced 
children and orphans funds have been spent, outcomes achieved, 
and a plan to renew the APCA framework.
    The Committee encourages investment in technology that 
identifies and protects vulnerable children, facilitates case 
management, and reports outcomes, as well as programs that 
prevent unnecessary parent-child separation and increase the 
percentage of children living within family care instead of in 
institutions. The Committee encourages increased engagement 
with community and faith-based organizations in APCA and 
related programs, and shall take into account organizations of 
all sizes that have demonstrated expertise in family-based 
care.
    The Committee recommends support for programs that address 
autism spectrum disorders, including treatment and the training 
of healthcare workers to better diagnose such disorders.
    The Committee recommends not less than $3,500,000 for 
assistance for blind children, in addition to funds otherwise 
available for such purposes, and USAID shall administer such 
funds in a manner that delivers the maximum amount of funds to 
beneficiaries.

                               NUTRITION

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

                  FAMILY PLANNING/REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH

    The Committee recommends a total of not less than 
$622,500,000 in the act for family planning and reproductive 
health programs, including $544,000,000 under this heading, 
$41,000,000 under the ESF heading, and $37,500,000 for the 
United Nations Population Fund. The Committee recognizes that 
information and assistance for families interested in healthy 
timing and spacing of pregnancies can enhance maternal and 
child health and improve the chances of survival of women and 
children.

                                HIV/AIDS

    The Committee recommends a total of $6,000,000,000 for 
programs and activities to combat HIV/AIDS, of which 
$5,670,000,000 is for the Department of State and $330,000,000 
is for USAID.
    Global Fund.--The Committee recommends $1,350,000,000 for a 
U.S. contribution to the Global Fund. The Committee continues a 
provision allowing the contribution to exceed the cap for 
fiscal year 2018, consistent with the limitation from 2004. The 
Committee confirms that the U.S. contribution should not exceed 
33 percent of the encashment of funds to fulfill replenishment 
cycles at the Global Fund from 2019 onward.
    President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.--The Committee 
recognizes that the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief 
[PEPFAR] plays a key role in HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and 
treatment globally.
    The Committee encourages the Office of the U.S. Global Aids 
Coordinator [OGAC] to increase efforts to align existing 
programs for orphans and vulnerable children with the goals and 
objectives of the U.S. Government Action Plan on Children in 
Adversity.
    The Committee recommends that OGAC develop a strategy as a 
follow on to the Accelerating Children's HIV/AIDS Treatment 
Initiative that includes specific pediatric treatment targets 
and focuses on building capacity to ensure HIV diagnostics and 
antiretroviral treatment for children are scaled-up with a 
focus on early infant diagnosis, age-appropriate pediatric 
formulations of antiretroviral drugs, and adherence support.
    The Committee continues to encourage OGAC to prioritize 
treatment for HIV-positive pregnant women to prevent mother-to-
child transmission.
    The Committee emphasizes that section 403(b) of the United 
States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria 
Act of 2003 (22 U.S.C. 7673(b)) requires 10 percent of total 
PEPFAR program funds to be allocated for programs focused on 
orphans and vulnerable children. The Committee again urges OGAC 
to seek civil society and government partners to achieve the 
goal of decreasing the number of children living outside of 
family care due to HIV/AIDS.
    Vaccine.--USAID shall continue to support research and 
development of a vaccine to combat the AIDS virus.

                       OTHER GLOBAL HEALTH ISSUES

    Birth Defects.--The Committee supports programs that 
address remediable birth defects in order to reduce or 
eliminate newborn deaths and the long-term disability suffered 
by those who survive.
    Contagious Infectious Disease Outbreaks.--The Committee 
recommends $72,500,000 to combat pandemic influenza and other 
highly virulent viruses and emerging diseases.
    In addition, section 7058(c) of the act provides additional 
authority to address emerging health threats, as described 
under such section in this report.
    Health Systems Strengthening.--The Committee recognizes 
existing initiatives for health systems strengthening currently 
being managed by several Federal departments and agencies, but 
notes that a comprehensive inter-agency plan to ensure proper 
oversight of such investments does not exist. The USAID 
Administrator, in consultation with the Global AIDS Coordinator 
at the Department of State, the Director of the Centers for 
Disease Control, and the heads of other relevant Federal 
departments and agencies, shall develop a comprehensive inter-
agency plan to strengthen the capacity of developing countries 
to effectively manage their national health systems with the 
goal of promoting country ownership and building resiliency.
    Human Papillomavirus.--The USAID Administrator shall report 
to the Committee not later than 120 days after enactment of the 
act on ways to utilize low cost Human Papillomavirus vaccines 
to significantly reduce mortality from cervical cancer in high-
prevalence, low-income countries.
    Malaria.--The Committee recommends $755,000,000, including 
a reprogramming of $100,000,000 from title IX of division J of 
Public Law 113-235, for programs to combat malaria and 
continues to encourage USAID to support public-private 
partnerships; research and development; diagnostic and vector 
control tools; access and delivery of anti-malarial medicines, 
including new, effective pediatric formulations and 
alternatives to artemisinin combination therapies to counter 
resistance; and to continue efforts to develop new insecticides 
and a malaria vaccine.
    The Committee reaffirms its support for the U.S. Global 
Malaria Coordinator, and the Secretary of State shall ensure 
that the Coordinator's authorities are fully implemented across 
relevant Federal departments and agencies.
    The Committee encourages USAID to support a pilot trial in 
Africa for the world's first malaria vaccine, as well as the 
development of next-generation vaccines, including those that 
seek to interrupt malaria transmission.
    Neglected Tropical Diseases.--The Committee recommends 
$100,000,000 for continued support for USAID's integrated 
Neglected Tropical Diseases [NTD] program to eliminate NTDs, 
including intestinal parasites, schistosomiasis, lymphatic 
filariasis, onchocerciasis, trachoma, and leprosy. The 
Committee supports research and development of NTDs, and notes 
the essential contributions of the private sector in improving 
diagnostic and therapeutic tools--and product innovation--to 
treat patients with NTDs.
    Research and Development.--The USAID Administrator shall 
develop a new, 5-year strategy on health-related research and 
development, and submit an annual report to the appropriate 
congressional committees on the new strategy, which shall also 
be posted on the USAID Web site not later than 180 days after 
enactment of the act. The new strategy shall detail 
coordination with the Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention and other relevant Federal departments and agencies, 
nongovernmental organizations [NGOs], and other private sector 
partners, in support of innovative global health product 
development to address critical gaps.
    Tuberculosis.--The Committee recommends $261,000,000, 
including a reprogramming of $20,000,000 from title IX of 
division J of Public Law 113-235, for programs to combat 
tuberculosis, and USAID shall prioritize the use of U.S.-based 
entities for this purpose, consistent with the FAA.

      Total, Environment Programs.....................           893,063
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Biodiversity.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$39,400,000 for the Central Africa Regional Program for the 
Environment, of which up to $20,900,000 is for USAID programs 
and not less than $18,500,000 is to be provided to the U.S. 
Fish and Wildlife Service [USFWS] by direct transfer.
    The Committee again recommends not less than $20,000,000 
for biodiversity conservation programs in the Andean Amazon and 
not less than $10,000,000 for such programs in the Brazilian 
Amazon.
    The Committee again notes the technical expertise of USFWS 
and the U.S. Forest Service [USFS] and directs that not less 
than $5,000,000 be provided to USFS by direct transfer for 
programs to protect wildlife, biodiversity, and forests in 
addition to funds otherwise available for USFS through USAID 
missions, and directs that not less than $5,000,000 be provided

appropriation for the Green Climate Fund, as no funds were 
included in the President's budget request.
    Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing.--The 
Committee recognizes that illegal, unreported, and unregulated 
fishing undermines sustainable fisheries management, the 
stability of coastal communities, and food security. USAID 
shall support efforts to build the capacity to comply with 
seafood import monitoring programs and promote adoption of 
sustainable fisheries management regimes.
    Large Dams.--The Committee notes the importance of 
hydropower as a renewable resource in providing power in 
developing countries, particularly for people who lack access 
to electricity.
    The Secretary of the Treasury, when evaluating a proposal 
by an international financial institution [IFI] to finance 
construction of a large dam, shall apply the Department of the 
Treasury's due diligence process, including reviewing for full 
compliance with IFI policies and legislative voting mandates, 
as well as consider the dam policies of relevant Federal 
departments and agencies, the Hydropower Sustainability 
Assessment Protocol, and other sources of hydropower and 
environmental expertise. The U.S. executive director of such 
IFI may vote to support such a project only if the Secretary, 
after consulting with the Secretary of State, USAID 
Administrator, and other technical personnel, as appropriate, 
determines that the IFI is taking the necessary steps to meet 
the safeguards enumerated under this heading in Senate Report 
114-79.

funding for programs that help to protect, maintain, and 
restore the health of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes 
ecosystems and resources. The Committee continues to support 
efforts to protect and sustainably manage marine resources by 
U.S. research institutions that have established partnerships 
with marine science researchers in developing countries that 
depend on marine ecology and are vulnerable to the impacts of 
pollution and climate change.
    Toxic Chemicals and Waste Recycling.--The Committee notes 
the pervasive and increasing harm caused by toxic pollution, 
and recommends up to $10,000,000 for grants to local 
governments and community organizations to support efforts to 
address chemical pollution and to recycle waste that threatens 
human health and the environment, which shall be awarded on an 
open and competitive basis following consultation with the 
Committee.
    U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, and 
the Department of the Interior.--Funds provided by direct 
transfer to USFWS, USFS, and the Department of Interior [DoI] 
shall be transferred pursuant to section 634(a) of the FAA not 
later than 90 days after enactment of the act, and prior to the 
expenditure of funds USFWS, USFS, and DoI shall submit spend 
plans to the Committee and USAID detailing the intended uses of 
such funds.

                            GLOBAL PROGRAMS

    Children with Disabilities.--The Secretary of State and 
USAID Administrator shall work with UNICEF and the Special 
Olympics to expand programs in the poorest countries to protect 
the rights of, and increase access to services and 
opportunities for, children with disabilities.
    Clean Cookstoves.--The Committee remains concerned that 
exposure of billions of people in developing countries to smoke 
from traditional cookstoves causes premature deaths, primarily 
of women and young children, and contributes to deforestation, 
erosion, and drought. The Committee recommends funds for 
cookstoves that sustainably reduce fuel consumption and 
exposure to harmful smoke.
    Faith-Based Organizations.--The Committee recognizes and 
appreciates the historical contributions of the faith sector in 
the delivery of assistance, care and support at the grassroots 
level. The Secretary of State and the USAID Administrator shall 
continue to use the faith sector, in conjunction with the 
public and private sectors, for the delivery of assistance in 
developing countries under this heading and the GHP and ESF 
headings.
    Latrines.--The Committee recognizes that assaults against 
women and girls in developing countries often occur outside at 
night when they are vulnerable due to the lack of safe and 
accessible latrines. USAID shall consult with the Committee not 
later than 90 days after enactment of the act on a multi-year 
plan to support initiatives by local communities in Africa and 
Asia to build safe, public latrines. The act provides not less 
than $15,000,000 for such purpose.
    Ocean Freight Reimbursement Program.--The Committee 
recommends $1,500,000 for USAID's Ocean Freight Reimbursement 
Program to continue support for Private Voluntary Organizations 
through a competitive grant program pursuant to section 123(b) 
of the FAA. The USAID Administrator shall consult with the 
Committee on the administration of the program for fiscal year 
2018.
    Orphans, Abandoned, and Displaced Children.--The Committee 
supports USAID programs to assist foreign governments and NGOs 
in the poorest countries to increase the percentage of orphans, 
abandoned, and displaced children living with appropriate, 
permanent family care; reduce the percentage living in 
institutions; and improve nutrition, educational opportunities, 
and protection for such children.
    Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund.--The Committee recommends 
$13,500,000 for the Leahy War Victims Fund which assists 
persons severely disabled as a result of armed conflict.
    Trafficking in Persons.--The Committee recommends a total 
of $65,000,000 in the act for TIP programs under the GHP, DA, 
ESF, and INCLE headings.
    USAID Advisor for Indigenous Peoples Issues.--The Committee 
recommends not less than $3,500,000 for grants and other 
activities administered by the USAID Advisor for Indigenous 
Peoples Issues.

    Caribbean Energy Security Initiative.--The Committee 
continues to support enhanced efforts to help Latin American 
and Caribbean countries achieve greater energy independence 
from Venezuela, including by improving governance, energy 
development, energy efficiency, and electrical inter-
connection, and recommends not less than $2,000,000 for the 
Caribbean Energy Security Initiative.
    Counter-Trafficking in Persons Policy.--The Committee 
continues to encourage the Department of State and USAID to 
implement the guiding principles of USAID's ``Counter-
Trafficking in Persons Policy'' (February 2012), particularly 
adopting an integrated approach to protection and prevention 
within core programs, as appropriate.
    Disability Programs.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $7,500,000 for grants to address the needs and protect and 
promote the rights of persons with disabilities in developing 
countries, in addition to funds otherwise available for such 
purposes in the act.
    Domestic Resource Mobilization.--The Committee continues to 
support efforts by USAID to encourage partner countries to 
increase their investments in health, education, and other 
development sectors by strengthening revenue generation and 
budgetary capacity, reducing losses from corruption and graft, 
and countering tax avoidance in partner countries. The 
Committee continues to support efforts by USAID to utilize 
funds from within sectors for domestic resource mobilization 
efforts. The USAID Administrator shall consult with the 
Committee prior to the obligation of funds for this purpose.
    Institutions of Higher Education.--The Committee supports 
continued funding for institutions of higher education in the 
Middle East and South Asia.
    Protecting U.S. Foreign Investment Abroad.--Not later than 
180 days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State, in 
consultation with the heads of other relevant Federal 
departments and agencies, shall submit to the appropriate 
congressional committees a detailed description of the tools 
currently available to protect U.S. individuals and businesses 
investing abroad from public and private sector corruption, as 
well as recommendations for expanding such tools to better 
protect U.S. foreign investment against corruption. OMB shall 
include funding for programs to protect U.S. foreign 
investments abroad from corruption in the President's budget 
request for fiscal year 2019.
    Reconciliation Programs.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $26,000,000 under this and the DA headings for 
reconciliation programs and activities which bring together and 
facilitate direct communication between individuals of 
different ethnic, religious, and political backgrounds in 
countries affected by civil strife and war, including in the 
Middle East and North Africa. Funds should be leveraged, to the 
maximum extent practicable, to obtain contributions from other 
donors and governments.
    Rule of Law.--The Committee underscores that the rule of 
law is fundamental to democracy and sustainable development, 
and supports funds to strengthen independent judiciaries, 
protect human rights and freedom of the press, combat human 
trafficking and corruption, and increase public accountability 
and access to justice.
    U.S. Middle East Partnership Initiative Scholarships.--The 
Committee recommends $20,000,000 under this heading for 
scholarships for students in countries with significant Muslim 
populations at not-for-profit institutions of higher education

awarding of funds shall be through an open and competitive

State, and encourages other bureaus, and relevant USAID 
offices, to develop and conduct such programs in a similar 
strategic manner.

    Combating Modern Slavery.--Funds appropriated under this 
heading that are made available for the purposes authorized by 
section 1298 of the National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2017 (Public Law 114-328) shall be awarded on a 
competitive basis and are subject to the regular notification 
procedures of the Committee.

Administrator, as appropriate, shall report to the Committee on 
the implementation of guidelines to ensure that programs to 
combat trafficking in persons and modern slavery are 
coordinated and complementary, as required by section 
7060(f)(3) of division J of Public Law 115-31.
    Illicit Drug Interdiction.--The Committee supports the 
Department of State's country-specific, regional, and global

Federal departments and agencies and foreign governments, 
including through training on forensic technologies.

coordinate development of such strategy with international

    Rule of Law Programs.--The Committee underscores that 
independent and transparent judicial systems are critical to 
the impartial and effective administration of justice, which is 
necessary for sustained, equitable development, particularly in 
countries with a history of impunity that are confronting 
networks of corruption, organized crime, and illicit narcotics 
and weapons trafficking. Funds made available under this 
heading shall expand programs that strengthen and promote 
independent judicial systems in such countries.
    Use of Regional Partners.--Funds appropriated under this 
heading shall be made available to support training and 
technical assistance for foreign law enforcement, corrections, 
and other judicial authorities, utilizing regional partners.

provide funds made available under this heading to U.S. and 
international NGOs conducting criminal investigations of war 
crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide in Syria and Iraq

criminal investigators while supporting U.S. law enforcement 
efforts to identify and prosecute those who commit such crimes.

    Conventional Weapons Destruction.--The Committee recommends 
$189,000,000 for Conventional Weapons Destruction programs, 
including $151,500,000 for programs to remove landmines, 
cluster munitions, and other unexploded ordnance [UXO], which 
should be prioritized in areas where such ordnance was caused 
by the United States. The Secretary of State shall conduct an 
assessment of such programs, which should include: (1) an 
explanation of the U.S. national interest served; (2) the risk 
factors and casualty data in each country associated with such 
removal; (3) the cooperation of partner governments in program 
implementation; and (4) support for such programs from sources 
other than the U.S. Government. The Secretary of State shall 
develop short and long-term goals for each country in which 
such U.S.-funded programs are currently implemented or intended 
to be implemented, and consult with the Committee on such goals 
and the results of such assessment.
    Demining and UXO Clearance in Areas Liberated from 
Extremists.--The Committee recognizes the increased need for 
resources for demining and UXO clearance in areas liberated 
from extremists in Iraq and Syria. Successful activities will 
help accelerate the return of internally displaced persons 
[IDPs] and refugees to their homes.

the PRC and Russia to FMF grant recipients.

    Organization of American States.--The Committee remains 
concerned with the budgetary challenges facing the Organization 
of American States [OAS], particularly the Inter-American 
Commission on Human Rights and the Special Rapporteur for 
Freedom of Expression, which play important roles in providing 
access to justice for victims of crimes against humanity and 
other human rights violations and in defending freedom of the 
press. The Committee urges the OAS Secretary-General to seek 
increases in voluntary contributions from other member states, 
and to develop a multi-year financial plan that emphasizes the 
comparative advantages of the OAS in supporting democracy, 
monitoring electoral processes, and protecting human rights.
    Posting of United Nations Voluntary Contributions.--The 
Secretary of State shall continue to post U.S. voluntary 
contributions under this heading which are provided to the U.N. 
and its affiliated agencies on the Department of State Web site 
in a timely manner.
    UNDP Stabilization Program in Iraq.--The Committee notes, 
in particular, the important contribution of the U.N. 
Development Program [UNDP] to stability and development in 
areas liberated from ISIS and other extremists in Iraq, and in 
facilitating the return of millions of IDPs to such areas. The 
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations shall work with the U.N. 
Secretary-General and the heads of relevant U.N. agencies to 
replicate the UNDP's stabilization program in Iraq in other 
stabilization efforts globally.

directs that such funds be made available for such purpose in 
fiscal year 2018.
    World Bank Safeguards.--The Committee expects the World 
Bank to set an example for other international financial

livelihoods may be harmed by Bank-financed projects are 
consulted and adequately compensated.

justified.

uses of funds shall include strengthening the capacity of such 
organizations, protecting their members who have been 
threatened, supporting the enactment of laws to protect 
freedoms of expression, association, and assembly, and 
educating the public about the legitimate role of such 
activists and journalists in society.

    Sec. 7033. International Religious Freedom.
    Subsection (a) recommends not less than $8,000,000 for the 
Office of International Religious Freedom, including not less 
than $6,000,000 for the Office of the Ambassador-at-Large for 
International Religious Freedom (the Ambassador-at-Large), and 
not less than $2,000,000 for the Special Envoy to Promote 
Religious Freedom of Religious Minorities in the Near East and 
South Central Asia, including for support staff.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of the Ambassador-
at-Large to U.S. foreign policy interests, and encourages the 
Secretary of State to ensure that the Ambassador-at-Large has 
both the resources and authority necessary to advance 
international religious freedom as an important element of U.S. 
foreign policy.
    Anti-Semitism Programs.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $1,000,000 for programs to combat anti-Semitism abroad. 
The Secretary of State shall consult with the appropriate 
congressional committees on plans to counter anti-Semitism, 
racism, and intolerance in Europe, including through new 
initiatives supported by the Organization for Security and 
Cooperation in Europe.
    Atrocity Prevention.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $500,000 under the D&CP; heading and $250,000 under the 
USAID OE heading to train personnel at the Department of State 
and USAID in genocide and mass atrocity prevention and to 
support full participation in the Atrocities Prevention Board 
[APB], including staff to carry out the responsibilities of the 
APB. The Under Secretary of State for Civilian Security, 
Democracy, and Human Rights shall administer such funds.
    In addition, subsection (d) recommends not less than 
$5,000,000 under the INCLE and ESF headings for atrocities 
prevention programs to prevent atrocities and to implement the 
recommendations of the APB, including with respect to the 
evaluation required by section 7033(d) of division K of Public 
Law 114-113. The uses of such funds shall be the responsibility 
of such Under Secretary.
    Countries of Particular Concern.--The Committee recognizes 
the importance of the proper designations of countries of 
particular concern [CPC] for religious freedom, and urges the 
President and the Secretary of State to update the CPC list 
annually. If the situation in a given country calls for such 
country to be designated as a CPC for religious freedom prior 
to the annual review, the President shall make the designation 
and promptly update the CPC list. If the U.S. Commission on 
International Religious Freedom recommends a country for CPC 
designation, and such country is not designated as a CPC, the 
Secretary of State shall provide the rationale for such action 
to the appropriate congressional committees within 30 days of 
such decision.
    Curriculum Report.--The Committee continues to recommend 
funds for the development of an international religious freedom 
curriculum for FSOs, particularly entry level diplomats, to be 
incorporated into mandatory orientation training programs. The 
Secretary of State shall report to the Committee not later than 
30 days after the enactment of the act on the status of 
implementation of the training program, and the development of 
a religious freedom curriculum.
    Sanctions.--The Committee notes that Congress has provided 
the President with sanction authority in section 212(a)(2)(G) 
of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1182) and 
section 1263(a) of Public Law 114-328 for use against 
government officials responsible for egregious violations of 
human rights, especially religious freedom. Not later than 90 
days after the enactment of the act, the Secretary of State 
shall submit a report to the Committee detailing: (1) the use 
of such sanction authority, including how many times each 
authority was used in the prior 3 fiscal years; (2) the 
justification for the use of such authority; and (3) the 
criteria used for determining when it was appropriate to use 
such authority.

    Sec. 7034. Special Provisions.
    Assistance to Eliminate Torture.--Not later than 90 days 
after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall submit 
a report to the Committee detailing the obligation and 
expenditure of funds in fiscal year 2017 to implement section 
7066(b) of Public Law 115-31.
    Forensic Assistance.--Subsection (b)(4)(1) of the act 
includes not less than $10,000,000, in addition to other funds 
in the act that are available for assistance for countries, for 
forensic assistance in countries where large numbers of people 
were killed or forcibly disappeared and are presumed dead as a 
result of armed conflict. The Committee recognizes that there 
is an ongoing need for DNA analysis and identification of 
exhumed remains, including in Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, 
Iraq, Sri Lanka, and Syria, and for judicial investigations and 
prosecution of those responsible for crimes against humanity 
and other gross violations of human rights. The Secretary of 
State shall consult with the Committee on the proposed uses of 
funds. The Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human 
Rights, and Labor shall administer such funds.
    Inhumane Prison Conditions.--For purposes of subsection 
(b)(5), the Committee intends that funds shall be used to 
eliminate inhumane conditions (including the excessive use of 
solitary confinement and the high incidence of prolonged pre-
trial detention) that cause harm to human health.
    Local Sustainability Awards Program.--The Committee is 
concerned that USAID programs are often unsustainable, 
particularly in countries with weak and corrupt institutions; 
lack local buy-in; and are conducted by large contractors and 
NGOs at unnecessary expense. Small local and U.S. NGOs and 
contractors have had difficulty in obtaining USAID funding, 
including for meritorious unsolicited proposals, and sub-
awardees are not sufficiently involved in project design.
    The Small Grants Program [SGP] was established by the 
Committee to provide a mechanism to address these concerns, 
including to reform the former Development Grants Program which 
was not implemented by USAID as intended by the Congress. 
Subsection (p)(3) renames the SGP the Local Sustainability 
Awards Program [LSAP]. The Committee recommends not less than 
$47,000,000 for the LSAP in fiscal year 2018.
    The USAID Administrator shall post on the USAID Web site 
information describing how the LSAP will be used to promote 
locally owned and led development efforts that have as their 
primary goal the sustainability of results, by supporting: (1) 
meritorious unsolicited proposals from eligible partners; (2) 
significant local investment in program design and priority-
setting; (3) experimental prime-sub award structures (either 
acquisition or assistance) pairing ineligible partners with 
eligible partners to pilot closely monitored partnerships, to 
ensure that large contractors and NGOs minimize overhead and 
empower small, locally connected sub-awardees in all aspects of 
programming (including but not limited to project design, 
implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and communication with 
USAID); (4) feedback mechanisms connecting beneficiaries, 
implementing partners, and USAID in order to maximize 
communication about the efficiency and effectiveness of 
programming, and the sustainability of results; (5) a systems 
approach to understanding and addressing the underlying factors 
that influence development outcomes; (6) comprehensive risk 
assessment that focuses on risk that a program will fail to 
attain local ownership of development solutions, the 
development process, and the sustainability of results; and (7) 
a culture of learning, experimenting, and sharing for the 
benefit of USAID as a whole. Meritorious unsolicited proposals 
are those which include promising ideas outside of existing 
plans derived from traditional USAID design activities. These 
may be developed independently of USAID, or through 
collaborative efforts, as permitted by the Federal Acquisition 
Regulations.
    The LSAP is not a substitute for agency-wide policy, 
personnel, and procurement reforms that should include career-
enhancing incentives and opportunities for USAID personnel to 
devote the time necessary to build relationships with, and 
support initiatives of, local organizations and communities 
that lack the knowledge or ability to compete for USAID 
funding. The USAID Administrator shall report to the Committee 
not later than 180 days after enactment of the act on steps 
already taken and intended to be taken to implement the 
requirements under this heading, as well as an agency-wide 
strategy to prioritize support for demand driven, locally-owned 
sustainable development. The strategy should be based on input 
from Local Solutions, LSAP, a broad selection of relevant USAID 
stakeholders (such as the Offices of Acquisition and 
Assistance, General Counsel, and Budget and Resource 
Management), and anonymous input and suggestions from USAID 
personnel globally. The report should include an assessment of 
lessons-learned and identify any obstacles, regulatory or 
otherwise, that may require changes in policy and/or 
legislation to overcome.
    Program to Leverage Additional Contributions.--Subsection 
(c)(2) makes funds available to leverage additional 
contributions for the World Food Programme [WFP] from sources 
other than the U.S. Government. The Committee notes with 
concern that the Gulf Cooperation Council [GCC] countries only 
contributed a total of $678,332,161 to the WFP between 2012 and 
2017. Over the same period, the U.S. contribution is estimated 
to be $11,500,000,000. The Secretary of State and USAID 
Administrator shall use the authority of subsection (c)(2) to 
encourage GCC countries to increase their contributions to WFP.
    Protections and Remedies for Employees of Diplomatic 
Missions and International Organizations.--With respect to the 
implementation of section 203(a)(2) of the William Wilberforce 
Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 
(Public Law 110-457), the Secretary of State shall consider the 
following as sufficient to determine that a diplomatic mission 
``tolerated such actions'': the failure to provide a 
replacement passport within a reasonable period of time to a T-
visa recipient; the existence of multiple concurrent civil 
suits against members of the diplomatic mission; or a failure 
to satisfy a civil judgment against an employee of the 
diplomatic mission.

    Sec. 7036. Palestinian Statehood.
    Sec. 7037. Restrictions Concerning the Palestinian 
Authority.
    Sec. 7038. Prohibition on Assistance to the Palestinian 
Broadcasting Corporation.
    Sec. 7039. Assistance for the West Bank and Gaza.
    Sec. 7040. Limitation on Assistance for the Palestinian 
Authority.
    Sec. 7041. Middle East and North Africa.
    Bahrain.--The Secretary of State shall update the report 
required under the FMF heading in Senate Report 114-79 in the 
manner described, and work with the Government of Bahrain on 
implementation of reforms that provide greater rights and 
opportunities for the people of Bahrain.
    The Committee remains concerned that restrictions on 
peaceful dissent and free expression in Bahrain may have the 
unintended consequence of increasing instability in that 
country.
    Egypt.--Subsection (a)(2)(A) of the act recommends not less 
than $10,000,000 for Egyptian students with high financial need 
to attend not-for-profit institutions of higher education that 
meet standards equivalent to those required for U.S. 
institutional accreditation by a regional accrediting agency 
recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Students should 
be eligible for scholarships based on need, outstanding 
academic record, and leadership potential to contribute to the 
long-term political, economic, and social development of Egypt. 
The curriculum of such institutions should encourage critical 
thinking and be taught in the English language.
    The act provides that funds appropriated under the ESF 
heading for assistance for Egypt shall be made available for 
development programs in the Sinai. The Committee notes that 
efforts by the Government of Egypt to establish security and 
stability in the Sinai will not be achieved through military 
force alone, and that a comprehensive development strategy is 
necessary to achieve this end. The Secretary of State shall 
consult with the Committee on the proposed uses of funds.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of 
Defense and the Government of Egypt, shall submit a report to 
the appropriate congressional committees describing U.S. policy 
regarding cash-flow financing for assistance for Egypt made 
available under the FMF heading.
    Sections 7034(o)(1) and (2) of the act provide authority 
for loan guarantees and an enterprise fund for Egypt, 
respectively.

    Iran.--Subsection (b) continues provisions regarding Iran 
that are similar to the prior fiscal year.
    Not later than 180 days after the enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall update the report required under this 
heading in Senate Report 114-79 regarding steps taken to 
implement section 415 of the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria 
Human Rights Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-158).
    Iraq.--The Committee recommends $969,109,000 for diplomatic 
operations in Iraq under the D&CP; and ESCM headings.
    The Committee supports the use of funds made available 
under section 7004(e)(1) of the act, and similar provisions in 
prior acts making appropriations for the Department of State, 
foreign operations, and related programs, for security upgrades 
and projects at the Baghdad Diplomatic Support Center.
    The Committee notes the need for replacement of fully 
armored vehicles in Iraq, particularly at Consulate Basrah, and 
expects the provision of such vehicles to be a priority for the 
Department of State.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of 
Defense, shall submit a report to the Committee detailing the 
number of personnel in Iraq under Chief of Mission authority, 
and other individuals supported by Department of State 
operations.
    Funds made available for the Kurdistan Region of Iraq [KRI] 
under the ESF heading shall be made available for programs to 
further economic reforms, diversify the economy, develop 
agricultural opportunities, and support the creation of small 
and medium-sized enterprises. Additional assistance is 
available under the IDA and MRA headings to mitigate the impact 
of IDPs and refugees in the KRI.
    The Secretary of State and USAID Administrator shall 
consult with the Committee on the proposed uses and management 
of funds made available by the act for the Marla Ruzicka Iraqi 
War Victims Fund.
    The Committee expects the administration to conduct 
effective monitoring of the use in Iraq of U.S. assistance for 
training and equipment recommended under the FMF heading.
    Authority for loan guarantees for Iraq is included in 
section 7034(o)(1) of the act.

    The Committee recommends $7,500,000 for refugee 
resettlement in Israel under the MRA heading, to be awarded 
through an open and competitive process.
    Section 7048(c) of the act continues current law regarding 
U.S. participation in the U.N. Human Rights Council.
    Jordan.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$1,500,000,000 for assistance for Jordan. Additional assistance 
is available under the IDA and MRA headings to address the 
needs of refugees in Jordan from neighboring countries, 
including for communities hosting such refugees.
    The Secretary of State shall negotiate an MOU with Jordan 
in a timely manner, particularly as the current MOU expired in

    Lebanon.--Subsection (e) conditions assistance for Lebanon 
in a manner similar to the prior fiscal year.
    The Committee again notes that sections 620A and 620G of 
the FAA restrict assistance to any country the Secretary of 
State determines has repeatedly supported acts of international 
terrorism and require the withholding of assistance to the 
government of any country that provides assistance to such 
country so determined by the Secretary, respectively. Hezbollah 
has been designated a FTO pursuant to section 219 of the 
Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189), as amended, 
since 1997. The Committee again expects that no funds made 
available by the act will directly or indirectly benefit or 
otherwise legitimize Hezbollah, including within the Government 
of Lebanon, or any other FTO operating in Lebanon.
    The Committee recommends $12,000,000 for scholarships for 
students in Lebanon with high financial need at not-for-profit 
educational institutions in Lebanon that meet standards 
comparable to those required for U.S. accreditation, to be 
awarded on a competitive basis. Students graduating from public 
and private high schools in Lebanon should be eligible for such 
scholarships if they demonstrate financial need and meet the 
academic requirements. In addition, the Committee recommends 
$2,000,000 from funds made available for the Relief and 
Recovery Fund to continue the pilot program at such 
institutions to establish a degree and/or certificate program 
for refugees in Lebanon, of any nationality, who have completed 
secondary education.

    Sec. 7044. South and Central Asia.
    Afghanistan.--The Committee recommends $857,539,000 for 
diplomatic operations in Afghanistan under the D&CP; heading.
    The Committee recommends $697,800,000 for assistance for 
Afghanistan. Prior fiscal year carryover funds for assistance 
for Afghanistan are projected to total $1,525,142,000.
    The Committee intends that gender-related programs will be 
a top priority of the Governments of the United States and 
Afghanistan, particularly activities that prioritize women's 
participation in political and security processes and programs, 
and that address gender-based violence. The Committee supports 
the inclusion of women in reconciliation negotiations and 
reintegration efforts. The Committee urges implementation of 
the 2015 National Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security 
developed by the Government of Afghanistan, and supports 
funding to enable civil society to monitor its implementation.
    The Committee notes the July 2017 SIGAR report on sexual 
abuse of children by Afghan security forces, and the reported 
failure to effectively implement the Leahy Law. The Secretary 
of State, in consultation with the Secretary of Defense and the 
heads of other relevant Federal departments and agencies, shall 
develop and implement, in coordination with the appropriate 
ministries of the Government of Afghanistan, a plan to 
implement the Leahy Law and to improve accountability of Afghan 
security forces. The Secretary of State shall report to the 
Committee not later than 90 days after enactment of the act on 
such plan and its implementation, which shall be updated every 
90 days thereafter until September 30, 2019.
    The Committee recommends not less than $10,000,000 under 
the INCLE heading for programs to increase the recruitment, 
training, and retention of women in law enforcement positions 
and in the judiciary, and to train Afghan security personnel to 
prevent and address gender-based violence, human trafficking, 
and other challenges that disproportionately impact women and 
girls.
    The Committee is concerned with reports of inadequate 
monitoring of budget support provided to the Government of 
Afghanistan, including through the Afghanistan Reconstruction 
Trust Fund. The Secretary of State, in consultation with the 
Secretary of the Treasury and the USAID Administrator, shall 
submit a report to the Committee not later than 90 days after 
enactment of the act describing how the monitoring of such 
assistance is conducted, including the extent to which 
information obtained through monitoring and evaluation 
conducted by the World Bank and the United Nations is shared 
with the U.S. Government.
    The Secretary of State shall submit the report required by 
section 7044(a)(1)(B) of division J of Public Law 115-31 in the 
manner described.
    The USAID Administrator shall consult with the Committee on 
the proposed uses of funds made available by the act for the 
Afghan Civilian Assistance Program. As in prior fiscal years, 
such funds shall be available for assistance for civilians who 
suffer losses as a result of military operations.

    Maldives.--The Committee recommends $6,000,000 under the 
ESF heading for civil society programs to counter violent 
extremism in the Maldives, to be administered by USAID.
    Not later than 30 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the Committee 
detailing steps taken by the Government of the Maldives to 
dismiss charges against individuals persecuted for peaceful 
expression, including former President Mohamed Nasheed, to 
protect due process and freedom from political persecution for 
the people of the Maldives, and to counter extremism.
    Nepal.--The Committee remains concerned with the slow

    Pakistan.--The Committee recommends $112,396,000 for 
diplomatic operations in Pakistan under the D&CP; heading.
    The Committee recommends $372,100,000 for assistance for 
Pakistan. Prior fiscal year carryover funds for assistance for 
Pakistan are projected to total $1,039,580,000.
    Subsection (c) continues current requirements regarding 
assistance for Pakistan, except the waiver provided for the 
Secretary of State certification on Pakistan's cooperation on 
counterterrorism efforts against the Haqqani Network and other 
extremists has been modified to 75 percent of funds 
appropriated under the FMF heading. The Committee remains 
concerned with the commitment by Pakistan to U.S. strategic 
objectives in the region, including combating terrorism.
    Subsection (c)(3)(E) of the act continues to withhold from 
obligation $33,000,000 of funds made available for assistance 
for Pakistan under titles III and IV of the act until the 
Secretary of State reports to the Committee that Dr. Shakil 
Afridi has been released from prison and cleared of all charges 
related to the assistance provided to the United States in 
locating Osama bin Laden.
    Subsection (e)(2) requires that funds shall be made 
available to enhance the recruitment, professionalism, and 
retention of women in the judiciary, police, and other security 
forces in South and Central Asia, and the Committee recommends 
not less than the fiscal year 2017 level for such purposes in 
Pakistan.
    The USAID Administrator shall consult with the Committee on 
the proposed uses of funds made available by the act for the 
Pakistan Civilian Assistance Program. As in prior fiscal years, 
such funds shall be available for assistance for civilians who 
suffer losses as a result of military operations.

    Sri Lanka.--The Committee recognizes and supports the 
efforts of the Government of Sri Lanka to advance democracy and 
the rule of law, and encourages further steps to address the 
underlying causes of the armed conflict by promoting justice 
and reconciliation. Given the geostrategic importance of the 
country, the Committee does not support the President's budget 
request for Sri Lanka, which proposed a 92 percent reduction in 
assistance from the prior fiscal year.

    South Asia Strategy.--Not later than 15 days after 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall submit a 
report to the Committee clarifying the roles and 
responsibilities of the Department of State and USAID in 
implementing the South Asia strategy, including: (1) an 
explanation of the assertion that such strategy ``will 
integrate all instruments of American power--diplomatic, 
economic, and military--in a way that is sustainable and cost-
effective''; (2) an assessment of the personnel changes, if 
any, required by the new strategy on a country-by-country 
basis; (3) a projection of the costs of operations and 
assistance on a country-by-country basis over a five-year 
period to implement the new strategy; and (4) a detailed 
description of the conditions on assistance intended to be 
imposed by the administration on respective recipients of such 
assistance, particularly Pakistan.
    Sec. 7045. Latin America and the Caribbean.
    Central America.--For purposes of subsection (a)(1), the 
Secretary of State shall work to establish a cost-matching 
requirement that leverages from governments in Central America 
$5 for every $1 appropriated by the act for implementation of 
the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
    The updated, multi-year spend plan required in subsection 
(a)(2) shall include: (1) an explanation of how funds will be 
prioritized to address the key factors in countries in Central 
America that contribute to the migration of undocumented 
Central Americans to the United States, the incidence of crime 
in the United States by individuals with ties to Central 
American-based criminal organizations, and the flows of illicit 
narcotics and money into the United States; and (2) a detailed 
description of 3-year, 5-year, and 10-year goals and benchmarks 
for specific economic, security, and governance indicators, 
against which the long-term success of the U.S. Strategy for 
Engagement in Central America should be measured.
    The Secretary of State shall submit to the Committee any 
updates to the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America 
in a timely manner.
    The Committee recognizes that long-term, sustained economic 
growth for Central America can be significantly facilitated 
through regional economic integration, leveraging all of 
Central America's economies to achieve a globally competitive 
investment climate.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of encouraging 
small and medium-size enterprise growth in the Northern 
Triangle of Central America as a crucial generator of 
employment in the formal economy, to further U.S. interests of 
economic development and improved security in the region. The 
Secretary of State and USAID Administrator shall consider 
positively each country's respective ease of doing business, 
especially for small and medium-size enterprises, when 
allocating funds.
    The Committee remains concerned with the extent that 
corruption has permeated the Northern Triangle countries of 
Central America due, in part, to the weakness of respective 
judicial systems and cultures of impunity. The Committee 
recognizes that independent Attorney Generals are essential to 
combating corruption, and recommends funding to support their 
offices in such countries.
    The Committee reaffirms its support for the International 
Commission against Impunity in Guatemala [CICIG] in 
strengthening the rule of law by combating corruption and 
impunity, and directs the Secretary of State, in consultation 
with the heads of other relevant Federal departments and 
agencies, to make available to CICIG and the Guatemala Attorney 
General, if requested, any information available to the 
Secretary that could assist in their investigations and 
prosecutions, and to seek similar support for such 
investigations and prosecutions from the heads of other 
relevant Federal departments and agencies. Not later than 90 
days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall 
report to the Committee on steps taken to provide such 
information.
    The Committee reaffirms the importance of the Government of 
Guatemala fulfilling its commitment under the financing 
agreement for the Chixoy Reparations Plan in a timely manner.
    The Secretary of State shall consider assistance provided 
by the central Government of Honduras to the victims of the May 
2012 killings at Ahuas, and its support for a credible and 
thorough investigation of the death of Berta Caceres and the 
killings of other civil society activists and journalists, in 
determining amounts of assistance for the Government of 
Honduras.
    The Committee recognizes that the ability of the Mission to 
Support the Fight against Corruption and Impunity in Honduras 
[MACCIH] to successfully carry out its mission depends on the 
willingness of the Government of Honduras to fully cooperate 
with investigations and prosecutions by MACCIH and the Honduran 
Attorney General, including providing access to documents and 
other information, and to implement reforms of the electoral 
and judicial systems recommended by MACCIH including enactment 
of an effective plea bargaining law.
    The Secretary of the Treasury shall instruct the United 
States executive directors to the World Bank and the Inter-
American Development Bank to vote against any loan, credit, 
guarantee, or other financing, except to meet basic human 
needs, for the central government of a country whose officials 
act to obstruct justice or otherwise impede the functions of 
CICIG, the CICIG Commissioner, the MACCIH, or the MACCIH 
Spokesman.
    The Committee recommends that of funds made available under 
the DA heading for Central America, not less than $12,000,000 
shall be transferred to the Inter-American Foundation.
    The Committee recommends not less than $5,000,000 to 
support efforts by the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and 
NGOs in Central America and Mexico to improve the capacity of 
national asylum systems to appropriately address the needs of 
repatriated migrants, refugees seeking asylum, and victims of 
human smuggling and trafficking.

    Colombia.--Subsection (b)(1) recommends not less than 
$391,253,000 for assistance for Colombia, including to 
implement a peace agreement between the Government of Colombia 
and illegal armed groups in accordance with constitutional and 
legal requirements in Colombia. The Committee understands that 
the Government of Colombia will invest substantial political 
and economic capital in the implementation of the peace 
agreement.
    Subsection (b)(2) provides that no funds in the act or 
prior acts making appropriations for the Department of State, 
foreign operations, and related programs for assistance for 
Colombia may be made available for payment of reparations to 
conflict victims or compensation to demobilized combatants 
associated with the peace agreement.
    The Committee is concerned that representatives of Afro-
Colombian, indigenous, and other minority groups, as well as 
rural women, are not sufficiently integrated into the process 
of implementing the peace agreement, and urges the Government 
of Colombia to prioritize engagement with these communities, 
including through economic and social development programs. The 
Committee underscores the importance of security and stability 
in formerly-held FARC areas, particularly in the Pacific coast 
region.
    The Committee continues to support programs in partnership 
with the Government of Colombia and NGOs to protect 
biodiversity and indigenous reserves in Colombia, and 
recommends not less than $5,000,000 for such programs.
    The Secretary of State shall update the spend plan required 
under this subsection in the Joint Explanatory Statement 
accompanying division J of Public Law 115-31.
    In accordance with subsection (b)(5), 20 percent of the 
funds under the INCLE heading that are made available for 
assistance for Colombia may be obligated only if the Secretary 
of State certifies and reports to the Committee that the 
counternarcotics strategy of the Government of Colombia is 
designed to: (1) significantly reduce illicit drug production; 
(2) encourage voluntary eradication by providing viable, licit 
alternatives to coca and opium cultivation; and (3) strengthen 
the capacity of the Office of the Attorney General to 
investigate and prosecute corruption, money laundering, and

programs available on the Internet, including language service 
staff, digital teams, and technical support, and $13,800,000 
for the Internet freedom program. The BBG CEO shall consult 
with the Committee prior to providing this information.
    Evaluation.--Not later than 90 days after enactment of the 
act, the Secretary of State and the BBG CEO shall jointly 
provide the Committee an evaluation of the effectiveness of 
Internet freedom programs in the PRC supported by the 
Department of State and BBG, including an estimate of the 
number of individuals using tools developed through such 
programs, and an analysis of the challenges presented by the 
PRC's continued efforts through laws and regulations to 
restrict access to information on the Internet.
    Peer Review.--The Department of State and BBG shall make 
any new Internet freedom tool or technique funded in fiscal 
years 2017 and 2018 available for peer review by an independent 
organization to evaluate the comparative value of such tool or 
technique over others previously developed.
    Prioritization.--The Department of State, USAID, and the 
BBG shall prioritize Internet freedom programs funded by the 
act to countries which obstruct Internet access, through 
legislation, regulation, and firewalls.
    Strategic Focus.--Effective Internet freedom programs must 
support the goals and objectives of clear and comprehensive 
strategies, including the President's International Strategy 
for Cyberspace (May 2011) and the Department of State 
International Cyberspace Policy Strategy (March 2017). Such 
programs are comprised of interdependent components, including 
the provision of tools and techniques that enable individuals 
to use circumvention technology to access and disseminate 
information; training for activists on protection and detection 
avoidance; and coordinated civil society efforts to challenge 
legislation, regulations, and laws that seek to restrict 
Internet freedom. The Committee encourages the Secretary of 
State to review and update such strategies.
