                              INTRODUCTION

        We live in a land made from ideals, not blood and soil. 
        We are custodians of those ideals at home, and their 
        champion abroad. We have done great good in the world 
        because we believed our ideals are the natural 
        aspiration of all mankind, and that the principles, 
        rules, and alliances of the international order we 
        superintended would improve the security and prosperity 
        of all who joined with us. That leadership has had its 
        costs, but we have become incomparably powerful and 
        wealthy as well. We have a moral obligation to continue 
        in our just cause, and we would bring more than shame 
        on ourselves if we let other powers assume our 
        leadership role, powers that reject our values and 
        resent our influence. We will not thrive in a world 
        where our leadership and ideals are absent. We wouldn't 
        deserve to.

     --Senator John McCain, in ``The Restless Wave''

                                *  *  *

    The President's fiscal year 2019 discretionary request of 
$42,271,025,000 for the International Affairs budget under the 
Committee's jurisdiction reflects a 21.7 percent decrease from 
the prior fiscal year enacted level of $54,018,000,000, and is 
22.3 percent less than the Senate 302(b) allocation of 
$54,418,000,000. The Senate 302(b) allocation is $400,000,000, 
or 0.7 percent, above the fiscal year 2018 enacted level.
    Operations and programs supported by the International 
Affairs budget address challenges facing the United States and 
the world. Since its inception, sustained investments in global 
health through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief 
[PEPFAR] have placed 13.3 million people on lifesaving 
antiretroviral treatment and provided 85.5 million people with 
HIV testing services. Humanitarian assistance mitigates the 
catastrophe of displaced populations caused by poor governance 
and conflict, estimated by the United Nations High Commissioner 
for Refugees [UNHCR] at a record breaking 65.5 million people 
around the world. From fiscal years 2008 to 2016, the United 
States Agency for International Development [USAID] provided 
37.3 million people sustainable access to an improved water 
supply and 24.1 million people access to improved sanitation 
facilities. Democracy assistance helps stem the continued 
decline of freedom and rise of authoritarianism around the 
world, as documented by Freedom House. Finally, security at 
home is bolstered by military assistance abroad, especially to 
important allies such as Israel.
    Diplomacy, development, and defense have long comprised 
America's national security framework. The Committee's 
recommendation for the fiscal year 2019 International Affairs 
budget holds the line in addressing these unprecedented and 
historical challenges.
    The Committee believes that diplomacy and development 
remain among the Nation's most cost-effective national security 
tools. The fiscal year 2019 International Affairs budget 
recommended by the Committee totals only 1.2 percent of the 
national budget.

                                *  *  *

    Diplomats and development specialists from the Department 
of State and USAID are on the fault lines of conflict in the 
Middle East and Africa, and on the frontlines of ideological 
change in Europe, Latin America, and Asia. They are America's 
first line of defense abroad.
    The Office of Management and Budget's [OMB] proposed 
reduction to the International Affairs budget undermines this 
first line of defense and reinforces the perception that the 
United States is retreating from its preeminent role as the 
world's superpower.
    For hostile regimes in Russia, the People's Republic of 
China [PRC], and Iran, perception is reality. These adversaries 
are undermining America's standing and alliances in the world, 
as evidenced by Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. 
presidential election, the PRC's push for hegemony in the South 
China Sea, and Iran's destabilizing support for terrorist 
proxies in the Middle East.
    The Intelligence Community Assessment's [ICA] findings in 
the January 6, 2017 report ``Assessing Russian Activities and 
Intentions in Recent U.S. Elections'' (ICA 2017-01D) are 
sobering:

        Russian efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential 
        election represent the most recent expression of 
        Moscow's longstanding desire to undermine the U.S.-led 
        liberal democratic order, but these activities 
        demonstrated a significant escalation in directness, 
        level of activity, and scope of effort compared to 
        previous operations.... We assess Moscow will apply 
        lessons learned from its Putin-ordered campaign aimed 
        at the U.S. presidential election to future influence 
        efforts worldwide, including against U.S. allies and 
        their election processes.

    Whether the administration recognizes it or not, Russia, 
the PRC, Iran, and other illiberal adversaries are engaged in a 
cold war against the United States. The strategic objective of 
this war is to establish respective regional spheres of 
influence and dominance at the expense of U.S. national 
interests. This can only be achieved through the destruction of 
the America-led international order that emerged from the post-
World War II rubble of Europe and Asia.
    As the ICA report details, a tactical full court press is 
already underway using covert, overt, and cyber means--in 
America and against our alliances. The United States has no 
choice but to respond. The best defense is a strong offense.
    While the administration recognizes the challenges certain 
adversaries pose to the United States in its December 2017 
National Security Strategy of the United States, OMB has not 
adequately resourced the Strategy, particularly its diplomacy 
and development components. This first line of defense in this 
cold war requires adequate personnel and robust programs to 
counter the actions and influence of Moscow, Beijing, and 
Tehran. Greater security and stability cannot be achieved with 
cuts to the budget, which are a self-inflicted wound.
    In addition to holding foreign leaders accountable for 
their actions against the United States, the administration 
must double down on global democracy promotion. Democratic 
states make the best allies as they provide voice and 
opportunity to their citizens, and predictability and stability 
to their neighbors. To win this cold war, the world's 
democracies must collectively and persistently counter 
authoritarianism and extremism abroad. The historical precedent 
exists: Republican and Democratic administrations alike have 
long stood with people seeking freedom.
    The United States must lead the international order as it 
has since the end of World War II. This task cannot be 
relinquished to any other nation. Abandoning this order puts 
the Nation in peril, as a new order established by our 
adversaries will have dire economic, political, and security 
consequences for the United States and its allies.
    The Committee is doing its part. Section 7067(d) of the act 
recommends $300,000,000 for the Countering Russian Influence 
Fund, an increase of $50,000,000 above the fiscal year 2019 
authorized level in the Countering Russian Influence in Europe 
and Eurasia Act of 2017 (Public Law 115-44). Section 7043(c) of 
the act recommends $160,000,000 as a down payment on the 
implementation of the Indo-Pacific Strategy, for which no funds 
were included in the President's budget request. Additionally, 
section 7032 of the act recommends $2,400,000,000 for democracy 
programs, a 43 percent increase above the President's budget 
request and a 4 percent increase above the prior fiscal year 
enacted level.
    The Committee recommends that the President's fiscal year 
2020 budget request include sufficient funding to: (1) fully 
implement the National Security Strategy; (2) sustain the 
investments of the act in strengthening the first line of 
defense abroad, including the operations and programs of the 
Department of State and USAID; and (3) preserve the U.S.-led 
international order.

                                *  *  *

    Consistent with Article I, section 9 of the U.S. 
Constitution, the Committee recommends discretionary 
appropriations of $54,418,000,000 for the Department of State, 
foreign operations, and related programs, details of which are 
included in the act and this report.

Definitions.--
    Appropriate Congressional Committees.--Pursuant to section 
7034(r)(1) of the act and unless expressly provided to the 
contrary, the term ``appropriate congressional committees'' as 
used in the act and this report means the Committees on 
Appropriations and Foreign Relations of the Senate and the 
Committees on Appropriations and Foreign Affairs of the House 
of Representatives.
    Extremist Organizations.--For purposes of the act and this 
report, the term ``extremist organizations'' means the Islamic 
State of Iraq and Syria [ISIS]; organizations affiliated with 
ISIS; a foreign organization that is determined to be engaged 
in terrorist activity, as defined in section 212(a)(3)(B) of 
the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1182); and other 
entities designated as foreign terrorist organizations [FTO] 
pursuant to section 219 of such act. The term ``extremist'' 
means an individual who knowingly facilitates or participates 
in an act of violent extremism. The term ``extremism'' means 
the advocacy or use of violence by such organizations or 
individuals to achieve political or religious goals.
    Prior Consultation.--For purposes of the act, the term 
``prior consultation'' means a pre-decisional engagement 
between a relevant Federal agency and the Committee during 
which the Committee is provided a meaningful opportunity to 
provide facts and opinions to inform: (1) the use of funds; (2) 
the development, content, or conduct of a program or activity; 
or (3) a decision to be taken.
    Program, Project, and Activity.--For purposes of the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 
(Public Law 99-177), as amended, with respect to appropriations 
contained in the act, the term ``program, project, and

    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 an 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.
    Stabilization Assistance.--Funds in the act that are made 
available for ``stabilization assistance'' shall be made 
available for programs and activities as defined by the 
Stabilization Assistance Review in ``A Framework for Maximizing

                        ALLOCATIONS AND REPORTS

    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 Foreign Assistance Act of 
1961 [FAA], where applicable.
    For purposes of the tables included in this report pursuant 
to section 7019, the amounts included in such tables that are 
also designated in the act as minimum or maximum funding 
requirements (through the description ``up to'' and ``not less 
than'' preceding such amounts) are exempt from the funding 
requirements and deviation limitations of subsections (a) and 
(b), respectively, and shall serve as the funding ceiling or 
floor, as intended in the act.
    Section 7019(e) of the act specifies that reporting 
requirements in this report shall be fulfilled in the manner 
described.

             CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET REQUEST AND JUSTIFICATION

    OMB shall ensure that sufficient documentation and 
justification is provided to the Committee by each relevant 
Federal agency in subsequent fiscal year CBJs, including a 
description of the processes by which the budget was 
formulated.
    OMB shall also ensure that CBJ materials for fiscal year 
2020 include sufficient justification and funding, and specific 
plans, for winding down any assistance programs proposed to be 
significantly reduced or terminated.
    Each Federal 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 FAA, and significant 
uses of the Economy Act. 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.

 CONTINUOUS SUPERVISION AND GENERAL DIRECTION OF ECONOMIC AND MILITARY 
                               ASSISTANCE

    The clarification of the roles and responsibilities of the 
Secretary of State, as contained in section 7056 of the 
Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs 
Appropriations Act, 2018 (division K of Public Law 115-141), 
shall apply to the act.

                       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

    Collective Outcomes.--The Secretary of State and USAID 
Administrator shall jointly coordinate the planning and 
evaluation of collective outcomes for assistance to address 
protracted humanitarian crises, including for funds programmed 
through multilateral organizations, to ensure each agency is 
pursuing common objectives.
    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 Reports.--Any agency receiving funds made 
available by the act shall post on its publicly available 
website any report required by the act to be submitted to the 
appropriate congressional committees, upon a determination by 
the head of the agency that to do so is in the national 
interest. This directive shall not apply if: (1) the public 
posting of the report would compromise national security, 
including the conduct of diplomacy; (2) the report contains 
proprietary, privileged, or sensitive information; or (3) the 
agency is already directed to publicly post such report by 
another provision of law or regulation.
    The head of an agency posting such report shall, unless 
directed otherwise by the act or any other provision of law or 
regulation, do so only after such report has been made 
available to the Committee for not less than 45 days. Any 
report required to be submitted to the Committee shall include 
information from the submitting agency on whether such report 
will be publicly posted.
    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 websites. The report shall also 
address the implementation of section 7034(m) of the act, which 
shall include a description of how: (1) the Department of State 
and USAID ensure that implementing partners establish effective 
procedures for collecting and responding to feedback from 
beneficiaries; and (2) oversight is regularly conducted to 
ensure such feedback is collected and used to maximize the 
impact of U.S. foreign assistance, consistent with the 
requirements of such section.
    Rulemaking.--The Committee again notes the Department of 
State has, at times, loosely interpreted the Administrative 
Procedure 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''.
    Sexual Exploitation and Abuse.--Not later than 180 days 
after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State and USAID 
Administrator shall jointly submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees detailing allegations of, and steps 
taken to prevent and respond to, sexual exploitation and abuse 
committed by implementing partners of foreign assistance 
programs supported by funds appropriated for the Department of 
State and USAID in fiscal years 2017 and 2018. The Secretary of 
State shall also urge the Secretary-General [SG] of the United 
Nations [U.N.] to publicly disclose, as part of the SG's 
initiatives on the Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse, 
the names of U.N. implementing partners that have not taken 
appropriate steps to prevent and respond to such abuse.

               REDUCING COSTS AND INCREASING EFFICIENCIES

    Consistent with prior fiscal years, the Committee supports 
Federal 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.
    Burden Sharing Report.--Not later than 45 days after 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State, in consultation 
with the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, 
shall submit a report to the Committee detailing efforts made 
during the prior calendar year to encourage other governments 
to increase their contributions for international peacekeeping 
activities, international organizations, and other multilateral 
and bilateral assistance programs, and the results of such 
efforts, disaggregated by government, organization, program, 
and amount.
    Contractor Bonuses.--Federal 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 
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. Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
USAID Administrator shall update the Committee on progress made 
in this effort.
    United States 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 year 
2017 relating to the Department of State and USAID. Not later 
than 45 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 intended to be 
taken, to comply with such recommendations.
    The Committee notes that unresolved issues include: (1) the 
requirement for Federal agencies to participate in 
International Cooperative Administrative Support Services 
[ICASS] unless they provide a business model demonstrating 
services can be obtained outside ICASS at a lower cost; (2) the 
need for the Department of State and the U.S. Commission on 
International Religious Freedom to delineate more clearly 
respective roles and responsibilities; and (3) a review by the 
Department of State and USAID of data posted on the 
foreignassistance.gov website.
    The USAID Administrator, in consultation with the heads of 
other relevant Federal agencies, shall clarify respective roles 
and responsibilities in combating wildlife trafficking in 
Southeast Asia, as recommended in the ``2018 Annual Report: 
Additional Opportunities to Reduce Fragmentation, Overlap, and 
Duplication and Achieve Other Financial Benefits'' (GAO-18-
371SP). The Committee notes that according to this report, 
USAID has the fewest number of outstanding issues since 2011 of 
any Federal agency.

                     NOTIFICATIONS AND SPEND PLANS

    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.
    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; and (3) conform to the definition of such plan under 
section 7034(r)(7) of the act.

                 TRANSFER AND REPROGRAMMING AUTHORITIES

    The Committee continues transfer and reprogramming 
authorities under the DP, EDCS, DCA, ERMA, and PC headings, and 
in sections 7004(f); 7005; 7009; 7013(d); 7014; 7034(d)(7); 
7034(i); 7044(a)(2); 7044(a)(3)(A); 7044(c)(1)(C); 
7044(c)(3)(F); 7045(e); 7048(h)(3); 7057(d); 7058(c)(1); 
7058(d)(3); 7060(a)(1)(A); 7061(a); 7069(b)(1); 7072(e); 
8003(a); and 8003(b) of the act.
    In addition, the FAA provides the President with broad 
transfer and reprogramming authorities in sections 109 (22 
U.S.C. 2151g); 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).
    Federal agencies funded by 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 concerned with the slower than usual 
obligation and disbursement of funds appropriated by prior acts 
making appropriations for the Department of State, foreign 
operations, and related programs and made available to the 
Department of State and USAID. While some of the delay may be 
caused by the transition of Secretaries of State, OMB's 
deliberative processes, and myriad National Security Council 
policy reviews, the Committee believes the current practice of 
requiring the review of all congressional notifications 
totaling $1,000,000 or more by a single official at the 
Department of State significantly contributes to the delay and 
has no appreciable impact on improving oversight and 
accountability over the use of funds.
    Several appropriations accounts in the act include a 
specific timeframe for the apportionment or disbursement of 
funds, which is intended to accelerate the use of funds at a 
more traditional rate without a loss of oversight and 
accountability.
    Not later than 45 days after enactment of the act, the 
Comptroller General shall consult with the Committee on options 
for reviewing the obligation and disbursement rates of funds at 
the Department of State and USAID.
    The Committee is mindful of the discretion granted in law 
to Federal 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 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 $2,916,794,000 
for all U.S. Direct Hire salaries at overseas and domestic U.S. 
diplomatic missions. Prior to submitting the operating plan for 
Diplomatic Programs, the Secretary of State shall consult with 
the Committee on the appropriate level of funding for Public 
Diplomacy salaries and benefits.
    The Committee recommends $513,000,000 for salaries for the 
Worldwide Security Program and does not support proposed cuts 
in the President's budget request to staffing levels at the 
Bureau of Diplomatic Security, Department of State [DS]. The 
Committee directs that the fiscal year 2019 staffing levels for 
DS shall be maintained at the highest on-board level previously 
justified and funded in a prior fiscal year, including for DS 
special agents. In addition, prior to proposing or implementing 
any future DS staffing reduction, the Secretary of State shall 
conduct a comprehensive analysis on regional staffing 
requirements, including a detailed assessment for each 
designated High Threat/High Risk post, and a risk assessment of 
any proposed reduction to such a post. The assessment shall be 
submitted to the appropriate congressional committees.
    Overseas Programs.--The Committee recommends $1,302,715,000 
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 wage increases, including, 
as necessary, funds to annualize increases provided in fiscal 
year 2018, through funds made available in the Buying Power 
Maintenance account.
    Diplomatic Policy and Support.--The Committee recommends 
$773,847,000 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 $951,084,000 
for the operation of security programs, including $928,777,000 
for WSP to protect diplomatic personnel, overseas diplomatic 
missions, information, residences, and domestic facilities. An 
additional $513,000,000 is included within the Human Resources 
function for salaries for a total of $1,441,777,000 for WSP.

                            EMBASSY SECURITY

    The Committee recommends a total of $5,734,303,000 for 
Embassy security, an amount consistent with the level 
recommended by the Benghazi Accountability Review Board [ARB]. 
Including the WSP rescission proposed by OMB, which the 
Committee does not provide in the act, the recommendation is 
$679,836,000 above the President's budget request. 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 DP 
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.

                             PROGRAM ISSUES

State, in coordination with the Director General of the Foreign 
Service and the Director of the Foreign Service Institute

individuals entering the Foreign Service, prior to beginning 
their first assignment or receiving a career appointment, to 
ensure that such training: (1) evaluates candidates on the 
skills, knowledge, judgment, and integrity necessary to serve 
effectively in the Foreign Service; and (2) provides sufficient 
instruction in diplomacy tradecraft and security, including

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

    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

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.

State shall make publicly available on the Department of State

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.
    Educational and Training Support for the Department of 
State.--The Committee encourages the Department of State to

organizations, and other appropriate entities, including the 
U.S. Diplomatic Studies Foundation, that seek to privately 
support FSI to expand and enhance Department of State 
educational and training programs, including the possible 
establishment of a degree-granting program at FSI, consistent 
with existing authorities and regulations to accept gifts. Not 
later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of 
State shall submit a report to the appropriate congressional 
committees detailing areas where such private support may be 
most helpful to educational and training programs for the

note).
    Holocaust Era Assets.--The Committee recommends not less

financial burdens on families seeking to adopt internationally, 
especially low-income families, families seeking to adopt 
sibling groups, or families seeking to adopt children with 
disabilities. Additionally, the Committee notes that IAAME is 
not permitted to profit from fees collected. The Committee 
directs that the next annual report on intercountry adoptions 
required by the Intercountry Adoption Act of 2000 (Public Law 
106-279) shall include an assessment of the impact of IAAME's 
new fee schedule, and identify actions taken by the Bureau of 
Consular Affairs, Department of State, to create opportunities 
for intercountry adoption, particularly in countries where 
American families are in the process of adoption but those 
adoptions have been slowed or blocked.
    Private Security Companies Report Update.--Not later than 
90 days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State, in 
consultation with the heads of other relevant Federal agencies,

submitting the Diplomatic Programs operating plan.
    Real Property.--The Secretary of State shall help

strengthening cooperation among the eight Arctic nations on 
vital Arctic issues, including peace and security, governance, 
climate change, economic development, environmental protection, 
health, education, and the Arctic Council. To assist in the

agreement and provide funds appropriated under this heading,

Research and Development Center or independent, non-
governmental institute.

    Use of Training Facilities in Rural Areas.--Federal 
agencies and other entities funded by the act are encouraged to 
assess the suitability of facilities in rural areas for 
personnel training purposes, as appropriate.
    Vessel Crew Visas.--The Committee is concerned that the 
visa requirements for crews working on foreign flag 
recreational vessels that cruise in the United States are 
unclear and contribute to uncertainty for vessel owners in a 
manner detrimental to the U.S. maritime industry. The Committee 
urges the Department of State to provide clarifying guidance to 
U.S. embassies and consulates regarding the issuance of C1/D 
and B1/B2 visas, including vessel status information and any 
other documentation required to successfully process visa 
applications. Not later than 90 days after enactment of the 
act, the Secretary of State shall submit a report to the 
appropriate congressional committees on progress in developing 
and providing such clarifying guidance.

the act, and every 90 days thereafter until September 30, 2019, 
the Secretary of State, in coordination with the relevant heads 
of Federal agencies, shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees that describes the implementation of 
Presidential Proclamation 9645 (``Presidential Proclamation 
Enhancing Vetting Capabilities and Processes for Detecting 
Attempted Entry Into the United States by Terrorists or Other 
Public-Safety Threats''), including the following information

applicants per month, disaggregated by country and visa

complete reports submitted to the President every 180 days 
under section 4 of Presidential Proclamation 9645. For the 
purposes of such report, the term ``designated country'' refers 
to Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The 
report shall be submitted in unclassified form, and shall be 
made publicly available online.

                                PROGRAMS

international exchanges and directs that programs funded under 
this heading support U.S. foreign policy objectives and be

prioritize critical language programs for U.S. students and

importance.

appropriated under this heading, $1,600,000 is available for 
three scholarship and fellowship programs to instill and 
instruct military and national security leaders of the United 
States, allies, and security partners in the values and 
leadership qualities vital to preserve the principles, rules, 
and alliances indispensable to guarantee an international order 
based on the rule of law, human rights, and democracy: (1) 
$700,000 is provided under the Benjamin Gilman International

Scholarship for the Children of Military Families to provide 
international study opportunities for children of military 
families who are eligible to receive financial aid under the 
Higher Education Act of 1965; (2) $500,000 is provided under

exchange programs, including youth, individuals from rural and

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

    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 
accompanying the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and 
Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2016 (S. 1725, as reported 
to the Senate on July 9, 2015), 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.
    Contributions to the Capital Security Cost Sharing and 
Maintenance Cost Sharing Programs.--The act provides a 
Department of State contribution of $1,025,304,000 under this 
heading, and a USAID contribution of $220,400,000 under the CIF 
heading, for the respective shares of the Capital Security Cost 
Sharing and Maintenance Cost Sharing [CSCS/MCS] programs. Such 
shares are consistent with original intent of the Benghazi ARB 
of a combined CSCS/MCS funding total of $2,600,000,000. Other 
Federal agencies funded by the act that are required to make 
contributions to the CSCS/MCS programs shall make contributions 
consistent with such level. The proportional shares of Federal 
agencies funded by the act shall not be increased to pay the 
additional amounts from agencies funded in other acts that 
would otherwise be necessary to reach the $2,600,000,000 
program level.
    The Committee does not concur with OMB's reinterpretation 
of the Benghazi ARB recommended level of $2,200,000,000 for the 
CSCS program to be inclusive of requirements for the MCS 
program of $400,000,000. This reinterpretation results in a 
proposed cut of 15.4 percent for the construction of modern 
facilities, potentially endangering U.S. diplomats and 
development specialists by underfunding necessary physical and 
technical security requirements at U.S. facilities abroad.
    New Embassy Compound Jerusalem.--The Committee notes that 
funds under this heading in the act and prior acts making 
appropriations for the Department of State, foreign operations, 
and related programs are available to support the construction

of State shall regularly inform the Committee on the status of 
plans for such a facility.
    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 
2019 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 
2018.

    The Committee recommends $1,440,375,000 for Contributions 
to International Organizations, of which $96,240,000 is 
designated for OCO.
    The act provides the funding necessary to pay the full 
fiscal year 2019 U.S. assessment for each respective 
international organization funded under this heading. The 
Secretary of State shall consult with the Committee prior to 
implementing any decision to not fully pay any such assessment.
     Food and Agriculture Organization.--The Committee again 
encourages the Food and Agriculture Organization [FAO] to work 
with land grant institutions of higher learning in the United 
States to meet global food security challenges.
    International Energy Agency.--The Committee recommends not 
less than the assessed amount for the International Energy 
Agency.

of State shall transmit to the Committee concurrent with the 
submission of the President's budget request for fiscal year 
2020 the most recent biennial budget prepared by the United 
Nations for the operations of the United Nations.
    In considering bilateral assistance for a foreign 
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 
request did not include a U.S. contribution to the U.N. 
Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization under this

        CONTRIBUTIONS FOR INTERNATIONAL PEACEKEEPING ACTIVITIES

Appropriations, 2018....................................  $1,382,080,000
    Base funding........................................     414,624,000
    Overseas contingency operations.....................     967,456,000
Budget estimate, 2019...................................   1,196,108,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,683,881,000
    Base funding........................................     716,425,000
    Overseas contingency operations.....................     967,456,000

    The Committee recommends $1,683,881,000 for Contributions 
for International Peacekeeping Activities, of which 
$967,456,000 is designated for OCO.
    The Committee recommendation provides sufficient funds for 
contributions under this heading equal to the 25 percent 
statutory limitation on such contributions rather than the 
assessed rate of 28.4 percent.
    Arrears.--The Committee notes that U.S. arrears for U.N. 
peacekeeping missions in fiscal years 2017 and 2018 are 
estimated to exceed $526,000,000 due to the statutory cap. The 
Committee encourages the Department of State to closely review 
each peacekeeping mission for potential cost savings, while 
ensuring mission effectiveness, and to renegotiate the assessed 
rate with the United Nations. The Secretary of State shall 
consult with the appropriate congressional committees on the 
options for addressing current arrears.
    Cost-Effective Alternative.--The Committee notes that U.N. 
peacekeeping missions are a cost-effective alternative to the 
unilateral deployment of U.S. peacekeepers abroad, as confirmed 
in the February 2018 GAO report entitled ``UN Peacekeeping: 
Cost Estimate for Hypothetical U.S. Operation Exceeds Actual 
Costs for Comparable UN Operation'' (GAO-18-243). The report 
indicates that a unilateral U.S. peacekeeping deployment to the 
Central African Republic would cost $5,700,000,000, or almost 8 
times the cost of the U.N. Multidimensional Integrated 
Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic.
    The Committee encourages the Department of State to 
continue to maximize the cost-effectiveness of U.N. 
peacekeeping missions, consistent with U.S. interests and the 
imperative to sustain such missions.

that despite millions of dollars of U.S. infrastructure 
investments on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border over the 
past two decades, wastewater, trash, and sediment continue 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 2018) and to encourage the Government of Mexico to make 
additional investments to halt the discharge of waste into the 
United States.
    Transboundary Flows Report.--Not later than 180 days after 
enactment of the act, the IBWC shall submit a report to the 
Committee quantifying the total annual volume and composition 
of transboundary flows that enter the United States from Mexico 
in the Tijuana watershed, as well as the amount of time between 
each discharge from Mexico and the notification of the U.S. 
Government and local communities, as recorded, and to the 
extent known, by the IBWC. The report shall also include a 
description of steps taken by the IBWC and other relevant 
Federal agencies to implement additional mitigation measures to 
address increased flows in 2017 and 2018, including feasibility 
studies for sediment basins in the Tijuana River and tributary 
washes and the installation of additional trash booms in such 
river. The report shall be posted on the IBWC website 
concurrently with its submission to the Committee.
    Water Deliveries Report.--Not later than 45 days after 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State, in consultation

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.

improvements, and fish restoration in the Lake Champlain Basin, 
and $250,000 is for the protection and restoration of the 
habitat and associated species of the Lake Memphremagog 
fishery. The recommendation also includes $9,000,000 for 
additional sea lamprey control and fishery research for the 
Great Lakes Basin.
    The Committee is concerned by aging infrastructure in the 
Great Lakes Basin which threatens sea lamprey control efforts 
intended to protect the $7,000,000,000 economy supported by the 
region's fisheries. The Secretary of State shall work with the 
GLFC to develop a multi-year strategy and funding plan to 
improve such infrastructure as part of the broader sea lamprey 
control effort, including by leveraging funds from non-U.S. 
Government sources.

    The USAID Administrator shall consult with the Committee 
prior to the submission of the fiscal year 2019 operating plan, 
which shall include updated estimates of available funds from 
sources other than appropriations in the act, including 
recoveries and carryover balances. Funds from such sources 
reported in previous operating plans have been higher than the 
estimates included in the CBJ. The Committee supports USAID's 
efforts to improve management of obligated funds which have 
increased available resources.
    Consolidation of the Small Grants Function.--The Committee 
does not support the consolidation of the small grants function 
under USAID and does not recommend funds in the act for such 
purpose.
    Mission Closings.--The USAID Administrator shall consult 
with the appropriate congressional committees when the closure 
of a USAID Mission abroad has been proposed within USAID, or 
with the Department of State or a foreign government.
    Small Business.--The USAID Administrator shall update the 
report required under this heading in Senate Report 114-79 in 
the manner described, except that such report shall cover 
fiscal year 2018 awards. Such report shall also include an 
update on the implementation of the directive in Senate Report 
114-79 regarding setting goals for overseas contracts and 
subcontracts with U.S. small business. The USAID Administrator 
shall include in such report a description of the incentives 
provided to overseas mission employees to work with small local 
and U.S. businesses, and information on how USAID will achieve 
government-wide percentage goals for all prime and subcontract 
awards to small business. The USAID Administrator shall 
consider revising ADS 304 regulations to include the 
utilization of small businesses, and include a description of 
steps taken to do so in such report.
    Youth Coordinator.--The Committee recognizes the progress 
that has been made toward achieving the goals set forth in 
USAID's Youth in Development Policy through the establishment 
of the Agency Youth Coordinator, and funds are provided in the 
act to continue implementation of the policy across USAID 
bureaus and overseas missions.

    The Committee recommends $75,500,000 for Office of 
Inspector General, of which $2,500,000 is designated OCO.
    The Committee notes that pursuant to section 6(g)(2)(E) of 
the Inspector General Act of 1978 (Public Law 95-452) the USAID 
Inspector General determined in the CBJ that the President's 
request for the Office of the Inspector General was ``not 
sufficient for OIG to continue to provide needed audit 
oversight and support ongoing investigative casework''. 
Therefore, the Committee provides $4,000,000 above the request 
to cover fiscal year 2019 requirements, as recommended by the 
USAID Inspector General.

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

                       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, including by developing and implementing a multi-year 
strategy for contributing to the global goal of ending such 
deaths. The strategy should include plans for: (1) bringing to 
scale the highest impact, evidence-based interventions aimed at 
reducing the prevalence of preventable child and maternal 
deaths; (2) implementing such interventions in a way that 
enhances transparency, accountability, country-ownership, and 
improved outcomes; and (3) supporting research, development, 
and introduction of innovative tools and approaches. Not later 
than 45 days after enactment of the act, the USAID 
Administrator shall submit a report to the Committee detailing 
plans for developing such a strategy.
    In addition, the USAID Administrator shall update the 
report required under this heading in Senate Report 115-152, 
which shall be posted on the USAID website not later than 
December 31, 2019.
    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 5-year 
framework was completed in December 2017, and notes the 
necessity for continued implementation of a whole-of-government 
strategy to coordinate assistance to orphans and vulnerable 
children, as mandated by Public Law 106-279.
    The Committee encourages USAID to increase efforts to 
better track and coordinate outcomes related to child 
protection and protection of children outside of family care, 
including: (1) investment in technology that identifies and 
protects vulnerable children, facilitates case management, and 
reports outcomes; and (2) 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, and USAID should 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 $135,000,000 for nutrition 
programs under this heading, to be made available through 
USAID.
    Biofortification.--The Committee recognizes the importance 
of biofortification as part of the global food security 
strategy and urges continued support for such 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 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 
$632,550,000 in the act for family planning and reproductive 
health programs, including $544,000,000 under this heading, 
$51,050,000 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 $6,050,000,000 for 
programs and activities to combat HIV/AIDS, of which 
$5,720,000,000 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 2019, 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 2020 onward.
    In advance of the Global Fund Replenishment Conference in 
2019, the Committee anticipates that the U.S. will contribute 
no less than $1,350,000,000 for each of the 3 fiscal years 
following the Conference.
    President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.--The Committee 
recognizes that 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 and implement a 
pediatric treatment plan 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 increased and improved early infant 
diagnosis, age-appropriate pediatric formulations of 
antiretroviral drugs, and new models to improve case-finding 
and longitudinal 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.
    Emerging Pandemic Threats.--The Committee directs USAID to 
continue to promote global health efforts through the Emerging 
Pandemic Threats 2 program, and to collaborate with the Centers 
for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], other relevant 
Federal agencies, and international and nongovernmental 
entities, including academic partners and the FAO.
    Global Health Security.--The Committee recommends 
$72,550,000 for programs to accelerate the capacity of targeted 
countries to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease 
outbreaks. In addition, section 7058(d) of the act provides 
additional authority to support global health security programs 
and address emerging health threats, as described under such 
section in this report.
    The Committee continues to support complementary efforts by 
USAID, CDC, and other relevant Federal agencies in carrying out 
the Global Health Security Agenda and recognizes the importance 
of these agencies receiving adequate resources, in a timely 
manner, to continue this work.

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

    Malaria.--The Committee recommends $755,000,000 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 Coordinator of 
the United States Government Activities to Combat Malaria 
Globally as established in the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde 
United States Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, 
and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-293), 
and directs the USAID Administrator to work with the heads of 
other relevant Federal agencies to ensure that the Coordinator 
is able to effectively carry out the mandate of the position 
across such agencies, as authorized.
    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.
    Not later than 45 days after enactment of the act, the 
USAID Administrator shall report to the Committee on total U.S. 
Government investments, and results, of the Malaria Vaccine 
Development Program to date.
    Neglected Tropical Diseases.--The Committee recommends 
$105,950,000 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 on 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 Committee recommends funding 
at not less than the fiscal year 2018 level for research and 
development of new global health technologies as part of 
Department of State and USAID global health programs to address 
longstanding and emerging global health challenges.
    The USAID Administrator shall continue to submit an annual 
report to the appropriate congressional committees on USAID's 
health-related research and development strategy, which shall 
also be posted on the USAID website not later than 180 days 
after enactment of the act. The report shall include a detailed 
description of USAID's total investment in global health 
research and development disaggregated by investments in: (1) 
product development research and development; and (2) 
implementation science research. The report shall also detail 
coordination with CDC and other relevant Federal agencies, 
nongovernmental organizations [NGO], and other private sector 
partners, in support of innovative global health product 
development to address critical gaps.
    Tuberculosis.--The Committee recommends $275,000,000 for 
programs to combat tuberculosis, and directs USAID to 
prioritize the use of U.S.-based entities for this purpose, 
consistent with the FAA.
    The Committee recognizes that Multidrug-Resistant 
Tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is a national security threat. Not later 
than 180 days after enactment of the act, the USAID 
Administrator shall submit a report to the Committee on 
implementation of Goals 2 and 3 of the National Action Plan for 
Combating Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis, issued on December 
22, 2015, including a description of: (1) efforts to increase 
case discovery; (2) the approximate number of people receiving 
treatment for MDR-TB; and (3) an estimate of the resources 
required to achieve stated objectives.

    Endangered Species.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$10,000,000 for programs to protect great apes in Central 
Africa and Indonesia, to include forest habitat conservation 
and law enforcement to prevent poaching, of which not less than 
$5,000,000 shall be provided to the USFWS by direct transfer, 
which is in addition to other funds provided for the USFWS in 
the act.
    The Committee recommends not less than $1,000,000 to

Funds are to be apportioned directly to the USFWS for flyways 
and to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration 
[NOAA] for sea turtles.
    Ocean and Other Marine Resources.--The Committee supports 
efforts by U.S. research institutions to partner with marine 
science researchers in developing countries that are dependent 
on ocean ecology and vulnerable to the impacts of climate 
change, including Vietnam, the Philippines, Ghana, and Senegal, 
to enhance scientific understanding and improve management 
practices that support sustainably managed marine and other 
resources. The Committee encourages USAID to utilize existing 
research partnerships.
    Toxic Chemicals.--The Committee notes the pervasive and 
increasing harm caused by toxic pollution, including from 
mining gold and other minerals, and recommends $10,000,000 for 
grants to local governments and civil society organizations in 
Latin America, Europe and Eurasia, Africa, and Southeast Asia 
to address hazardous chemical pollution.
    Waste Recycling.--The Committee recommends $10,000,000 for 
grants to local governments and civil society organizations to 
support the recycling of waste, including plastics that pollute 
oceans, lakes, and rivers and threaten human health and the 
environment in Latin America, Europe and Eurasia, Africa, and 
Southeast Asia.
    U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, 
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the 
Department of the Interior.--Funds provided by direct transfer 
to USFWS, USFS, NOAA, and DoI shall be transferred pursuant to 
section 632(a) of the FAA not later than 90 days after 
enactment of the act, and prior to the expenditure of funds, 
the USFWS, USFS, NOAA, and DoI shall submit spend plans to the 
Committee and USAID detailing the intended uses of such funds.
    Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing.--The 
Committee directs USAID to support efforts to build the 
capacity of countries where illegal, unreported, and 
unregulated fishing undermines sustainable fisheries management 
to comply with seafood import monitoring programs and promote 
adoption of sustainable fisheries management regimes.
    International Conservation Efforts/Zoos.--The USAID 
Administrator shall expand international conservation efforts 
through engagement with international institutes affiliated 
with zoos in the United States, including for programs to 
address wildlife management and recovery, conservation science, 
and support of human populations coexisting with wildlife. 
Funds made available for such purposes shall be awarded on an 
open and competitive basis.
    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 
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.

                            GLOBAL PROGRAMS

    Advisor for Indigenous Peoples Issues.--Not later than 90 
days after enactment of the act, the USAID Administrator shall 
post on the USAID website the policy required under the heading 
``Indigenous Peoples'' in the joint explanatory statement 
accompanying division K of Public Law 115-141.
    The Committee recommends not less than $3,500,000 for 
grants and other activities administered by the USAID Advisor 
for Indigenous Peoples Issues.
    Bicycles.--Limited mobility in less developed countries, 
particularly in rural areas, constrains efforts to alleviate 
poverty by limiting access to local markets, schools, health 
clinics, and other basic services. Not later than 120 days 
after enactment of the act, the USAID Administrator shall 
submit a report to the Committee on efforts by USAID to 
increase access to affordable bicycles in such countries to 
achieve key development objectives, and options for increasing 
such efforts. The Committee recommends not less than $1,000,000 
under this heading for a pilot program for such purpose, with a 
focus on impoverished rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa. 
The USAID Administrator shall consult with the Committee prior 
to the obligation of funds for this purpose.
    Children with Disabilities.--The Committee urges the 
Secretary of State and USAID Administrator to collaborate 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, and the women and children who collect 
firewood face daily hardship and security risks. The Committee 
supports the ongoing work of the Department of State, in 
partnership with other Federal agencies, to help address this 
health and safety issue, and recommends funding 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 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.
    Mapping.--The Committee recognizes that the delivery of 
foreign assistance can be improved through comprehensive 
national mapping, including through the use of digital 
orthoimagery and lidar elevation data acquired through aerial 
surveys. The Department of State and USAID should consider 
developing a strategy for comprehensive national mapping in 
countries that receive U.S. foreign assistance.
    Low Cost Eyeglasses Pilot Program.--The Committee is aware 
that low cost eyeglasses can dramatically improve the lives of 
vulnerable people with poor vision in less developed countries, 
enabling children to succeed in school and adults to become 
economically productive. Not later than 90 days after enactment 
of the act, the USAID Administrator shall submit a plan to the 
Committee to establish a pilot program to support NGOs and 
local governments, as appropriate, to provide low cost 
eyeglasses in countries where there is a need, specifying the 
countries to be targeted, the scale of need, and amounts of 
funding. The plan should also include investments to help 
improve the capacity of local entities to provide low cost 
eyeglasses to needy populations, and should be developed in 
collaboration with the Global Partnership on Assistive 
Technology. The Committee recommends not less than $5,000,000 
to implement the pilot program.
    National and International Service.--The Committee supports 
efforts to encourage governments and civil society 
organizations to establish and promote national and 
international service opportunities for young people in 
developing countries.
    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 
2019.
    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.
    Strategic Transitions.--The Secretary of State and USAID 
Administrator shall regularly consult with the appropriate 
congressional committees and development stakeholders on 
efforts to transition nations from assistance recipients to 
enduring diplomatic, economic, and security partners. Such 
consultations shall also include the guiding principles and 
metrics being developed to support such efforts.
    Not later than 180 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State and USAID Administrator shall submit to the 
appropriate congressional committees an updated implementation 
plan on country transitions from assistance, as required by 
section 7069(b)(2) of division K of Public Law 115-141.
    Trafficking in Persons.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $65,000,000 in the act for TIP programs under the DA, ESF, 
AEECA, and INCLE headings.
    U.S. Engineering Firms.--The Committee encourages the USAID 
Administrator to increase the participation of U.S. engineering 
firms in the development of physical infrastructure projects, 
and to ensure that qualified engineering is applied to all 
infrastructure projects funded by USAID. Not later than 180 
days after enactment of the act, the USAID Administrator shall 
report to the appropriate congressional committees on 
opportunities for increasing the participation of U.S. 
engineering firms in USAID-funded infrastructure projects.

    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.
    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 USAID 
Administrator shall consult with the Committee prior to the 
obligation of funds for this purpose.
    Not later than 180 days after enactment of the act, the 
USAID Administrator shall submit to the Committee a domestic 
resource mobilization strategy that establishes objectives, 
roles, and multi-year funding requirements. Such strategy 
should be developed in consultation with other relevant Federal 
agencies, the development community, and the appropriate 
congressional committees.
    Institutions of Higher Education.--The Committee supports 
continued funding for institutions of higher education in the 
Middle East and South Asia.
    Reconciliation Programs.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $30,000,000 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 
in a manner consistent with prior fiscal years, and the 
awarding of funds shall be through an open and competitive 
process.

    Discrimination Against LGBTI Persons.--The Committee 
directs the Department of State to include in its annual 
country human rights reports descriptions of official 
government discrimination of lesbian, gay, bisexual, 
transgender, and intersex [LGBTI] persons and consider such 
discrimination in assistance decisions, and urges the 
Department and USAID to continue to allocate funding for the 
Global Equality Fund and the LGBTI Portfolio within USAID's 
Human Rights Division.
    Promoting Accountability, Inclusivity, and Resiliency.--The 
Promoting Accountability, Inclusivity, and Resiliency [PAIRS]

protect civil society activists who have been threatened,

the Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, 
and Labor shall consult on the planned uses of funds with the 
Committee, representatives of civil society, and independent 
media organizations. Uses shall include: (1) strengthening the 
capacity of such organizations; (2) protecting their members 
who have been targeted; (3) supporting enactment of laws to 
protect freedoms of expression, association, and assembly; and 
(4) educating the public about the legitimate role of such 
activists and journalists in society.
    For the purposes of this subsection, civil society 
activists shall include journalists, human rights and 
indigenous rights defenders, and environmental activists.
    Roles and Responsibilities.--Not later than 90 days after 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State and USAID

congressional committees clarifying the roles and 
responsibilities of the Department of State and USAID in the 
promotion of democracy abroad, including coordinating 
mechanisms among and between bureaus, offices, and accounts.

    The Committee recommends $770,334,000 for Assistance for 
Europe, Eurasia and Central Asia.
    The elimination of the AEECA account, as proposed in the 
President's budget request, has not been justified.
    Assistance requested for countries in Europe, Eurasia and 
Central Asia under the GHP and INCLE headings are not included 
in this account, but shall be administered in accordance with

    Child Protection Compacts.--The Committee recommends 
$5,000,000 be made available for child protection compacts for 
countries with the greatest need.
    Programs to End 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 an open and competitive basis.
    Illicit Drug Interdiction.--The Committee supports the 
Department of State's country-specific, regional, and global 
programs to combat the manufacturing and interdict the 
trafficking of fentanyl, heroin, and other synthetic opioid 
compounds, and precursor chemicals, in coordination with other 
Federal agencies and foreign governments, including through 
training on forensic technologies.
    International Training.--The Secretary of State shall 
ensure that funds made available under this heading for the 
Office of Overseas Prosecutorial Development Assistance and 
Training and the International Criminal Investigative Training 
Assistance Program, Department of Justice, are transferred to 
such Department expeditiously to mitigate disruptions to the 
effective implementation of relevant programs.
    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.
    War Crimes Investigations.--The Department of State shall 
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 
that prioritize strengthening the capacity of Syrian and Iraqi 
criminal investigators while supporting U.S. law enforcement 
efforts to identify and prosecute those who commit such crimes.

of American States [OAS], particularly the Inter-American

supporting democracy, monitoring electoral processes, and 
protecting human rights.

    Sec. 7031. Financial Management and Budget Transparency.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees detailing information of which the 
Secretary is aware relating to networks of corruption involving 
the participation of, or support from, senior officials of 
countries that receive assistance funded by the act under 
titles III or IV. The report shall include: (1) a diagram 
depicting the public and private individuals and entities that 
make up the corrupt network; (2) identification of any 
government agency or other public entity that is directly or 
indirectly involved in such network, such as the judiciary, tax 
authority, central bank, specific military or police units, or 
elements of subnational governance; (3) identification of the 
area of operation of such network and its key economic 
activities, licit and illicit, as well other significant 
revenue streams benefitting the network, such as embezzlement 
of public funds, extortion, or bribery; and (4) identification 
of entities and individuals that enable corrupt practices, such 
as banks or other commercial enterprises.
    Sec. 7032. Democracy Programs.
    Subsection (a)(1) recommends not less than $2,400,000,000 
for democracy programs. The spend plan required pursuant to 
section 7076(b) of the act for such programs should include 
accounts, regions, and global programs.
    The Committee notes that section 7043(c) of the act 
recommends an additional $160,000,000 to implement the Indo-
Pacific Strategy. The Committee underscores the importance of 
this region to U.S. security interests, and remains concerned 
with the backsliding of democracy, including the persecution of 
members of opposition political parties, civil society 
activists, human rights and indigenous rights defenders, and 
independent journalists, including in Burma, Cambodia, the 
Maldives, Philippines, and Vietnam. The Department of State and 
USAID, as appropriate, shall develop partnerships with 
governments, the private sector, faith-based organizations, and 
nongovernmental and international organizations that share 
common interests in the region.
    The Committee recommends not less than the fiscal year 2018 
levels for programs to support independent media and Internet 
freedom, which are necessary for the protection and promotion 
of political stability.
    Funds made available pursuant to this section are not 
intended for attribution to other sector or program directives 
included in the act.
    Authority.--The Secretary of State and USAID Administrator 
shall only apply the authority of subsection (b) to funds 
attributed to democracy programs pursuant to subsection (a) and 
to funds made available to NED.
    Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, Department of 
State.--Subsection (a)(2) recommends $89,540,000 for democracy 
programs under the ESF, AEECA, and INCLE headings to be 
administered by DRL. These funds are in addition to funds made 
available for such purposes under the DF heading.

    In order to more accurately track funds administered by 
DRL, including funds made available for specific directives, 
the Secretary of State shall identify in the report required by 
section 653(a) of the FAA the amount of funds, at the country 
or program level, as appropriate, to be administered by DRL 
under the ESF, DF, AEECA, and INCLE headings.
    Continuation of Current Practices.--For the purposes of 
subsection (e), the term ``civil society'' includes the program 
area Independent Media and Free Flow of Information.
    Country Strategy Reviews.--The Under Secretary of State for 
Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, in consultation 
with the Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human 
Rights, and Labor and the USAID Assistant Secretary for 
Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance, shall fulfill 
the requirements of section 7032(g) of division K of Public Law 
115-141 in the manner described.
    Program Changes.--The Secretary of State or USAID 
Administrator, as appropriate, shall continue to report to the 
appropriate congressional committees within 30 days of a 
decision to significantly change the objectives or the content 
of a democracy program or to close such a program due to the 
increasingly repressive nature of the host government. The 
report shall also include a strategy for continuing support for 
democracy promotion, if such programming is feasible, and may 
be submitted in classified form, if necessary.
    Program Prioritization.--Funds appropriated by the act and 
made available to strengthen government institutions shall be 
prioritized for those institutions that demonstrate a 
commitment to democracy and the rule of law, as determined by 
the Secretary of State or USAID Administrator, as appropriate.
    Sec. 7033. International Religious Freedom.
    Anti-Semitism Programs.--The Committee recommends not less 
than $1,000,000 for programs to combat anti-Semitism abroad.
    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 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.--Subsection (a)(2) recommends funds for 
the development of an international religious freedom 
curriculum for Foreign Service officers, 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 enactment of the act on 
the status of implementation of the training program, and the 
development of a religious freedom curriculum.
    Operations.--Pursuant to subsection (a), the table under 
the DP heading recommends: $6,500,000 for the Office of 
International Religious Freedom and $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 Special Envoy should be a position with direct 
access to the Secretary of State and senior Department of State 
officials, as the Congress intended in the Near East and South 
Central Asia Religious Freedom Act of 2014 (Public Law 113-
161).
    Pakistan Blasphemy Laws.--The Committee is concerned with 
continued democratic backsliding in Pakistan and the ongoing 
use of archaic blasphemy laws to target religious and ethnic 
minorities, including the wrongful imprisonment of Asia Bibi.
    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 the Global Magnitsky Human Rights 
Accountability Act (22 U.S.C. 2656 note) for use against 
government officials responsible for particularly severe 
violations of religious freedom and gross violations of human 
rights. Not later than 90 days after 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.
    Contingencies and Evacuations.--Subsection (f)(2) provides 
authority for the use of up to $301,200,000 in unobligated 
balances from amounts made available for Worldwide Security 
Protection in the Security Assistance Appropriations Act, 2017 
(division B of Public Law 114-254) for the development and 
implementation of emergency evacuation contingency plans. The 
President's request proposed rescinding such funds.
    Partner Vetting.--Partner vetting includes national 
security vetting of U.S. Government vendors and other partners, 
and their subawardees, to mitigate the risk of diversion of 
U.S. Government resources.
    The Secretary of State and USAID Administrator should 
continue to provide a direct vetting option for prime awardees 
in partner vetting programs referenced in subsection (e).
    Protections and Remedies for Employees of Diplomatic 
Missions and International Organizations.--In addition to the 
directives in subsection (k), and 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'': (1) the failure to provide a 
replacement passport within a reasonable period of time to a T-
visa recipient; (2) the existence of multiple concurrent civil 
suits against members of the diplomatic mission; or (3) the 
failure to satisfy a civil judgment against an employee of the 
diplomatic mission.
    Sec. 7035. Arab League Boycott of Israel.
    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 $15,000,000 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. Not later than 
45 days after enactment of the act, the USAID Administrator 
shall consult with the Committee on the uses of such funds.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees detailing the amount of funds 
appropriated in prior acts making appropriations for the 
Department of State, foreign operations, and related programs 
that are made available for development programs in the Sinai. 
The report shall include an assessment of the Government of 
Egypt's support for such programs. The Committee believes that 
security and stability are unattainable in the Sinai absent the 
implementation of a coherent development strategy.
    In making the certification required by subsection 
(a)(3)(A)(iii), the Secretary of State shall consider the cases 
of American citizen Mustafa Kassem and Ola Al-Qaradawi and her 
husband Hosam Khalaf. The Committee urges that humane treatment 
and fair trials be afforded these and other prisoners.

    Iran.--Not later than 180 days after enactment of the act, 
the Secretary of State shall update the Iran sanctions report 
required by section 7041(b)(3)(B) of division K of Public Law 
115-141.
    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 regarding steps taken to 
implement section 415 of the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria 
Human Rights Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-158).
    The Secretary of State, in consultation with the heads of 
other relevant Federal agencies, including BBG, shall 
coordinate Iran counterinfluence programs funded by the act. 
Such programs should: (1) counter the false assertions made by 
the Government of Iran against the United States and other 
democratic countries; (2) describe the support such Government 
provides to terrorist proxies; and (3) assess and describe the 
impact the support to such proxies causes to the people of 
Syria, Yemen, and other areas where they operate.
    Iraq.--The Committee recommends $987,100,000 for diplomatic 
operations in Iraq under the DP and ESCM headings.
    The Committee remains concerned with the absence of a 
coherent and comprehensive strategy for stabilization of areas 
liberated from ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
    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 internally displaced persons [IDPs] and refugees in the KRI.
    The Committee is aware of the absence of legal and economic 
protections for U.S. contractors operating in Iraq, the 
limitations of the Iraqi tax system, and opportunities for 
corruption within that system that puts at risk U.S. taxpayer 
dollars. The Committee believes greater protections are 
required, including through the June 2014 agreement governing 
the U.S. presence in Iraq. Not later than 30 days after 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall submit a 
report to the appropriate congressional committees detailing 
steps taken by the Department of State to enhance such 
protections for U.S. contractors, and foreign assistance, in 
Iraq, consistent with the requirements of section 7013 of the 
act.
    Funding made available for the Marla Ruzicka Iraqi War 
Victims Fund shall be used to assist Iraqis who suffer losses 
as a result of U.S. military operations in Iraq. Such funds 
shall be administered by DRL or USAID as a distinct Fund and 
implemented by a qualified NGO or contractor in Iraq, and shall 
be in addition to funds otherwise made available for such 
purposes. Prior to the obligation of such funds, the Secretary 
of State and USAID Administrator shall consult with the 
Committee on the management of the Fund.
    The Committee recommends not less than $5,000,000 for 
scholarships for students in Iraq, including in the KRI, at 
not-for-profit, American-style educational institutions that 
meet standards comparable to those required for U.S. 
accreditation. Such funds shall be awarded on a competitive 
basis.

    The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for refugee 
resettlement in Israel under the MRA heading, to be awarded

    Jordan.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$1,525,000,000 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.

    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 
$3,000,000 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.
    The Secretary of State shall work with the Government of 
Lebanon to ensure that it is fully cooperating with UNHCR to 
find safe, voluntary, dignified, and sustainable solutions for 
Syrian refugees.

    West Bank and Gaza.--Sections 7035, 7037, 7038, 7040, 
7041(j), and 7048(c) of the act continue requirements on 
assistance for the West Bank and Gaza, in a manner similar to 
the prior fiscal year. The Committee retains sections 7013(b),

parties involved in the conflict to respect their obligations 
under international humanitarian law and take all feasible 
precautions to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure

    Anti-Slavery.--The Committee again recommends $2,000,000 to 
combat slavery in Mauritania and neighboring countries.
    Cameroon.--The Committee urges the Secretary of State to 
work with the Government of Cameroon to ensure the transparent 
investigation, and appropriate punishment, of security force 
personnel of such government who are credibly alleged to have 
committed, ordered, or covered up gross violations of human 
rights, including against Cameroonian citizens and refugees in 
the Far North and Anglophone regions of Cameroon. Not later 
than 30 days after enactment of the act, the Secretary shall 
consult with the appropriate congressional committees on the 
status of such investigations and the intended use of funds 
made available by the act for Cameroon.
    Central African Republic.--The Committee remains concerned 
with mass atrocities in the Central African Republic and the 
lack of accountability for such acts committed by government 
security forces. The Committee supports efforts by the 
Secretary of State and USAID Administrator to promote 
institutional reform and conflict mitigation, and to provide 
humanitarian assistance to those in need. The Committee 
recommends enhanced diplomatic engagement to address increasing 
instability, including support for efforts to ensure the 
effective operation of the Special Criminal Court.
    Conflict Minerals.--The Committee again recommends support 
for local and international NGOs to conduct oversight of the 
trafficking in conflict minerals out of Eastern Congo to Rwanda 
and Uganda.
    Democratic Republic of the Congo.--Funds appropriated under 
the ESF heading shall support programs to improve democracy, 
governance, and the rule of law, and strengthen civil society 
in the Democratic Republic of the Congo [DRC], including 
accountability for abuses committed by the Government of the 
DRC. Such funds should also support economic and agricultural 
development programs, including in eastern DRC.
    The Committee continues to recognize the success of public-
private partnerships in integrating small farmers into 
agricultural development initiatives in the DRC, and encourages 
USAID to continue to support such partnerships and projects.

    Djibouti.--The Committee continues to recognize the 
importance of Djibouti to U.S. security interests, and 
recommends $9,000,000 under the ESF heading to implement 
programs to expand economic opportunities and strengthen 
democracy in Djibouti, including to support civil society.
    Ethiopia.--The Committee urges the Secretary of State and 
USAID Administrator to work with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, the 
Government of Ethiopia, and local and international 
organizations to strengthen democracy, human rights, and the 
rule of law in Ethiopia.
    Kenya.--The Committee remains concerned with 
disappearances, torture, and extra-judicial killings of human 
rights defenders in Kenya, including the lack of accountability 
for such crimes. The Secretary of State shall support programs 
to strengthen the oversight of, and accountability for, Kenyan 
security forces, and consult with the Committee on such 
efforts.
    Lake Chad Basin Countries.--The Committee notes that the 
gains achieved by the G5 Sahel Joint Force and Multinational 
Joint Task Force can only be sustained if accompanied by 
effective and legitimate governance, including the efficient 
delivery of basic services. To assist in this effort, the 
Committee recommends additional assistance for democracy and 
development programs in Cameroon, Niger, Nigeria, and Chad.
    Malawi.--The Committee notes the important role U.S. 
universities have played in advancing recent innovations in e-
learning, and directs the USAID Administrator to support 
partnerships in Malawi to increase access to higher education 
through the use of this technology.
    Niger.--The Secretary of State shall encourage the 
Government of Niger to meet the necessary conditions to be in 
compliance with, and rejoin, the Extractives Industry 
Transparency Initiative.
    Power Africa.--The Committee recommends not less than the 
fiscal year 2017 funding level for the Power Africa initiative.
    Rwanda.--The Committee directs the Secretary of State to 
review the current process for granting visas to officials of 
the Government of Rwanda and provide recommendations to the 
appropriate congressional committees for ensuring that such 
officials are not automatically denied visas solely because of 
their association with the Rwandan Patriotic Front.
    Somalia.--The Committee recommends $50,000,000 under the 
ESF heading for programs, including to promote dialogue and 
reconciliation between the central Government of Somalia and 
the rest of the country, and for programs to strengthen the 
rule of law, government institutions, civil society 
participation in peace-building activities, and education and 
employment opportunities for the people of Somalia.
    South Sudan.--The Secretary of State shall ensure that data 
collected by the Ceasefire and Transitional Security 
Arrangements Monitoring Mechanism, including archival data and 
data collected by any successor organization, is shared in a 
timely manner and in its entirety with the U.S. Government, 
including relevant bureaus and offices of the Department of 
State, and is made publicly available, as appropriate.
    The Committee supports programs to improve the capacity of 
civil society in South Sudan to document human rights 
violations and strengthen justice and accountability 
mechanisms.
    Not later than 60 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit an update to the strategy 
required in section 7042(i)(1) of division J of Public Law 115-
31.
    Sudan.--The act does not include the President's request 
for authority for debt relief for Sudan. The Committee remains 
concerned with the Government of Sudan's efforts to 
systematically limit the access of humanitarian organizations 
to populations in need, and ongoing displacements in conflict 
areas.
    Not later than 120 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the heads of other 
relevant Federal agencies, shall submit a report to the 
appropriate congressional committees detailing steps taken by 
the U.S. Government to: (1) improve access for humanitarian 
organizations throughout Sudan; (2) monitor such access; and 
(3) verify allegations of ongoing conflict.
    The Gambia.--The Committee notes the return of democratic 
rule in The Gambia and recommends $2,000,000 under the DA 
heading for democracy and governance assistance for that 
country, including to build the capacity of government 
institutions and to promote human rights.
    War Crimes in Africa.--The Committee continues to support 
efforts by the United States, the United Nations, African 
Union, and governments in Central Africa to capture Joseph Kony 
and other top commanders of the Lord's Resistance Army [LRA], 
and to assist victims of the LRA's crimes. Subsection (e) 
recommends not less than $10,000,000 to implement the Lord's 
Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 
2009 (Public Law 111-172), including for programs to improve 
physical access, for telecommunications infrastructure and 
early-warning mechanisms, and to support the disarmament, 
demobilization, and reintegration of former LRA combatants, 
especially child soldiers.
    Zimbabwe.--Subsection (h) continues the prior year 
limitations on assistance for the central Government of 
Zimbabwe, and the Committee notes that the Zimbabwe Democracy 
and Economic Recovery Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-99) restricts 
U.S. support for international financing for Zimbabwe. The 
Secretary of State shall work with other donor governments to 
advocate for similar limitations on assistance for Zimbabwe 
until fundamental rights are being respected, including 
freedoms of expression, association, and assembly, due process, 
and the holding of free and fair elections.
    The Committee recommends not less than the fiscal year 2018 
level for programs to promote democracy and protect human 
rights in Zimbabwe, which should include efforts to build the 
capacity of democratic political parties.
    Sec. 7043. East Asia and the Pacific.
    Bangladesh.--The Committee recommends not less than 
$3,000,000 under the DA heading for programs to strengthen the 
capacity of the Government of Bangladesh to inspect and enforce 
garment factory safety standards, and improve labor conditions 
in Bangladesh by strengthening the capacity of independent 
workers' organizations in readymade garment, shrimp, and fish 
export sectors. The USAID Administrator shall consult with the 
heads of other relevant Federal agencies in developing and 
implementing such programs, including ILAB and USTR.
    The Committee notes the need for greater transparency and 
accountability in Bangladesh, particularly within the judicial, 
law enforcement, and electoral sectors, and recommends 
$8,000,000 under the DA heading for democracy assistance for 
that country.
    The Committee directs that funds in the act be made 
available for programs in Bangladesh to promote economic, 
environmental, and social resilience along migration routes 
from vulnerable coastal cities to secondary urban centers.
    The Committee recommends not less than the fiscal year 2018 
assistance levels to address the needs of Rohingya refugees and 
affected communities in Cox's Bazar and surrounding areas in 
Bangladesh. Such assistance should include water, sanitation, 
and protection services for women and children. The Committee 
urges the Secretary of State and USAID Administrator to assist 
humanitarian organizations in obtaining unrestricted access to 
Rohingya refugees.
    Burma.--Subsection (a) provides the funding and authorities 
necessary to implement programs in Burma to help: (1) address 
the humanitarian crisis arising from the ethnic cleansing of 
the Rohingya people, including in Bangladesh, and investigate 
and document this crime against humanity; (2) address violence 
and gross human rights abuses against other ethnic 
nationalities in Burma, particularly the Kachin, committed by 
the Government of Burma, and provide humanitarian and 
development assistance in affected areas; (3) further economic 
and political reforms, which are a precondition for both the 
resolution of Burma's internal conflict since 1948 and a 
meaningful democratic transition; and (4) maintain U.S. 
influence in the country and region, and counter the influence 
of the PRC.
    In considering programs pursuant to subsection 
(a)(1)(B)(xi) to support the return of Rohingya, Karen, Kachin, 
Mon, and Chin that have been displaced, the Secretary of State 
shall ensure that: (1) such returns are verifiably of a 
voluntary nature; (2) such returnees are guaranteed equal 
rights with others in Burma, including the restoration or 
granting of full citizenship, freedom of movement and access to 
basic services in such locations, and are not placed in 
internment camps; (3) such locations are free from ethnic 
violence, and the root causes of unrest are addressed to ensure 
the sustainability of returns and prevent further displacement; 
(4) such programs are implemented in a credible and transparent 
manner; and (5) international and local media organizations, 
including the UNHCR and the Office of the United Nations High 
Commissioner for Human Rights, have unimpeded access to monitor 
all areas of return.
    For purposes of this subsection, displaced Rohingya should 
be considered refugees regardless of their legal status in 
their current location.
    The Committee recommends $3,000,000 for programs to 
investigate and document allegations of ethnic cleansing and 
other gross violations of human rights against the Rohingya 
people in Burma and Bangladesh, which shall be administered by 
DRL. An additional $750,000 is recommended for programs to 
document allegations of such violations against other ethnic 
groups in Burma, particularly in conflict areas, which shall 
also be administered by DRL.
    No assistance for Burma is included in the President's 
budget request under the IMET and the FMF headings, and none is 
provided by the act.

    Cambodia.--Subsection (b) provides the funding and 
authorities necessary to implement programs in Cambodia to 
help: (1) address the economic, development, and health needs 
of the Cambodian people which are largely disregarded by the 
Government of Cambodia [GoC]; (2) bolster democracy, human 
rights, and the rule of law which are under attack by the GoC 
and the PRC; and (3) erode the influence of the PRC over the 
GoC that has made that country a PRC client state.
    No funds are included in the President's budget request for 
a U.S. contribution to the Extraordinary Chambers in the Court 
of Cambodia [ECCC], and none are provided in the act. The

Cambodia for costs incurred in support of the ECCC.
    Funds made available by the act for assistance for Cambodia 
shall be made available for research and education programs

justify separate treatment from that accorded to the PRC in any 
new laws, agreements, treaties, or arrangements entered into 
between the United States and Hong Kong; (2) identify officials 
of the Government of Hong Kong responsible for the 
surveillance, abduction, detention, or forced confessions of

specific plans for the implementation of such Strategy by 
Federal agencies, including an estimate of the resources

region, specifically the governments of Australia, India, 
Japan, and South Korea.

    Laos.--The Committee recommends not less than $40,000,000 
for UXO clearance in Laos, and is aware that the people of Laos 
continue to suffer the consequences of widespread UXO 
contamination, mostly of U.S. origin, and that improved survey 
and clearance methods are creating greater efficiencies.
    Mekong River Programs.--The Committee supports assistance 
for Vietnamese and Laotian communities along the Mekong River 
to mitigate and adapt to drought, flooding, and dam 
construction which threatens food production and livelihoods.
    People's Republic of China Access Report.--Not later than 
90 days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State 
shall submit to the appropriate congressional committees a 
report that includes: (1) an assessment of the level of access 
PRC officials granted diplomats, journalists, and tourists from 
the United States to Tibetan areas, including a comparison with 
the level of access granted to other areas of the PRC, a 
comparison between the levels of access granted to Tibetan and 
non-Tibetan areas in relevant provinces, a comparison of the 
level of access in the reporting year and previous reporting 
year, and a description of the required permits and other 
measures that impede freedom of travel in Tibetan areas; and 
(2) a list of PRC officials determined by the Secretary to be 
personally and substantially involved in the formulation or 
execution of policies related to access for foreigners to 
Tibetan areas. The report shall be posted on the Department of 
State website not later than 15 days after submission to such 
committees. For purposes of the report, the term ``Tibetan 
areas'' shall have the same meaning as defined in section 3 of 
S. 821, the Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act of 2017 (introduced 
in the Senate on April 4, 2017).
    Philippines.--The Committee notes that the certification 
requirement in section 7043(e) of division K of Public Law 115-
141 may prohibit fiscal year 2018 assistance for the Philippine 
National Police, with certain exceptions, given the absence of 
the adoption and implementation of a counternarcotics strategy 
that is consistent with international human rights. Therefore, 
subsection (g) prohibits assistance under the INCLE heading for 
counternarcotics assistance for the Philippines, with certain 
exceptions.
    The Committee directs that funds under title III of the act 
be made available to USAID to continue support for the national 
and community based drug treatment and demand reduction program 
implemented by the Philippine Department of Health and local 
entities. Such funds shall be made available on a cost-matching 
basis, to the maximum extent practicable.
    The Committee recognizes the success of the Armed Forces of 
the Philippines [AFP] in countering and combating terrorism, 
which poses a threat to the Philippines and the region. 
However, the AFP must be a legitimate defender of the state and 
all the people of the Philippines. Therefore, not later than 90 
days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall 
submit a report to the appropriate congressional committees 
assessing the extent to which the AFP is respecting human 
rights and the rule of law, particularly regarding involvement 
in extra-judicial killings, and the investigation and 
prosecution of military personnel who commit gross human rights 
violations. The report shall also include a description of the 
steps taken by the AFP to implement policies and reforms to 
prevent such abuses.
    Taiwan.--The Committee encourages the Department of State 
to seek opportunities to diversify joint programs with Taiwan 
beyond the traditional areas of cooperation.
    Tibet.--Funds appropriated by the act for assistance for 
Tibet are intended to continue and expand programs, including 
those that: (1) improve the economic development, well-being, 
and resilience of Tibetan culture and the community in exile; 
(2) enhance the capacity of Tibetan institutions and 
governance, such as the Tibetan Administration; and (3) 
strengthen democracy, governance, information and international 
outreach, and research associated with Tibet and the Tibetan 
community in South Asia.
    For purposes of the report required by section 653(a) of 
the FAA, spend plans, and notifications, the Department of 
State and USAID shall differentiate assistance made available 
by the act for Tibet from any such assistance made available 
for the PRC.
    Thailand.--No assistance for Thailand is recommended under 
the IMET and FMF headings, as such assistance is prohibited by 
section 7008 of the act.
    Funds made available by the act under the ESF heading for 
assistance for Thailand shall be made available for democracy 
programs, and conflict resolution and reconciliation programs 
in Southern Thailand.

$20,000,000 under the ESF heading for activities related to the 
remediation of dioxin contamination sites in Vietnam, and not 
less than $12,500,000 under the DA heading to expand programs 
to assist persons with severe physical or cognitive 
disabilities in areas sprayed with Agent Orange or contaminated 
with dioxin. The Committee intends that funds for health/
disability programs will be provided, to the maximum extent 
practicable, through local Vietnamese organizations, including 
to improve their capacity to deliver services. The USAID 
Administrator shall consult with the Committee on the proposed 
uses of funds.
    The Committee recommends $15,000,000 under the NADR heading 
for UXO clearance in Vietnam.
    The Committee recommends $5,000,000 under the ECE heading 
and $5,000,000 under the ESF heading for Fulbright University 
Vietnam [FUV], and understands that an additional $3,700,000 
derived from debt forgiveness will be provided for a total of 
$13,700,000 for FUV in fiscal year 2019. The Committee supports 
FUV, and notes that this is a multi-year commitment by the U.S. 
Government to help establish the first university in Vietnam 
that meets U.S. standards of academic freedom. The Committee 
understands that construction-related costs will be financed 
through private donations.

    Sec. 7044. South and Central Asia.
    Afghanistan.--The Committee recommends $971,800,000 for 
diplomatic operations in Afghanistan under the DP heading.
    Subsection (a)(1)(A) provides authority for the use of 
funds to reestablish and maintain one or more Embassy Branch 
Offices in Afghanistan, following consultation with the 
Committee and subject to the regular notification procedures. 
The Committee recognizes that diplomacy and development 
requirements for Afghanistan are long term in nature and will 
transcend the U.S. military presence in that country.
    The Secretary of State shall update the report required by 
section 7044(a)(1)(B) of division J of Public Law 115-31 
through fiscal year 2020.
    Funding for the Afghan Civilian Assistance Program shall be 
made available to assist Afghans who suffer losses as a result 
of United States military operations in Afghanistan. Such funds 
shall be administered by USAID as a distinct Program and 
implemented by a qualified NGO or contractor in Afghanistan, 
and shall be in addition to funds otherwise made available for 
such purposes. The USAID Administrator shall consult with the 
Committee prior to the obligation of funds for such Program.
    For purposes of subsection (a)(3)(B), the term 
``individual'' means an individual who exercises significant 
control or influence over the administration of U.S. 
assistance. While U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents 
are not subject to the requirement of the subsection, the 
Committee strongly encourages the Department of State, USAID, 
SIGAR, and other inspectors general to continue to work to 
uncover and address corruption committed by such individuals in 
Afghanistan, including to pursue prosecution in accordance with 
applicable law.
    Assistance for Afghanistan should be made available to 
support recovery assistance for conflict-affected communities 
to help them prosper and reintegrate former combatants, except 
that no direct payments shall be made to such combatants. The 
Department of State and USAID must ensure that no U.S. 
assistance facilitates, or gives the perception of 
facilitating, impunity or immunity for former combatants who 
engaged in gross violations of human rights.
    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. Funds made available by 
the act for gender programs in Afghanistan shall be made 
available as grants to Afghan organizations, to the maximum 
extent practicable.
    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.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the USAID 
Administrator, shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees: (1) describing the monitoring and 
evaluation procedures for programs funded by the act, by 
agency, including for programs conducted in areas where project 
and resource disbursement cannot be performed; and (2) 
assessing the progress by the Government of Afghanistan in 
meeting the benchmarks contained in the Afghanistan Compact. 
The report shall be updated and submitted to such committees 
within 45 days of the submission to the Congress of the 
President's fiscal year 2020 budget request
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the USAID 
Administrator, shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees assessing progress in the preparation 
by the Government of Afghanistan and international donors to 
hold legitimate and competitive parliamentary and presidential 
elections in Afghanistan, and including recommendations for 
improving such polls.

security interests of continued cooperation on health, 
environment, and development programs impacting India.
    The Committee recognizes the support of the USAID Mission 
in India to development efforts in Afghanistan, which should be

importance of continuing the USAID Mission presence and 
programs in India, including to assist in the implementation of 
the Indo-Pacific Strategy.

    Pakistan.--The Committee recommends $112,718,000 for 
diplomatic operations in Pakistan under the DP heading.
    The Committee does not recommend a specific amount under 
the FMF heading for assistance for Pakistan, which is subject 
to prior consultation with the Committee.
    In submitting the information required in subsection 
(c)(1)(B), the Secretary of State shall include a description 
of the steps taken by the Government of Pakistan to: (1) 
conduct military operations that significantly disrupt the safe 
havens, fundraising and recruiting efforts, and freedom of 
movement of domestic and foreign terrorist organizations, 
including the Haqqani Network, in Pakistan; (2) demonstrate its 
commitment to prevent domestic and foreign terrorist 
organizations, including the Haqqani Network, from using any 
Pakistan territory as a safe haven and for fundraising and 
recruiting efforts; (3) coordinate with the Government of 
Afghanistan to restrict the movement of militants, such as the 
Haqqani Network, along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border; (4) 
arrest and prosecute senior leaders and mid-level operatives of 
domestic and foreign terrorist organizations; and (5) prevent 
the proliferation of nuclear-related materials and expertise.
    Subsection (c)(4) 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 2018 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.
    The Committee recommends an additional $500,000 under the 
IMET heading above the President's budget request for 
assistance for Pakistan, which partially reverses a decrease in 
prior fiscal year assistance for such purposes resulting from 
the January 2018 policy decision of the United States to review 
security assistance for Pakistan.

    Sec. 7045. Latin America and the Caribbean.
    Central America.--For purposes of subsection (a), 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 Committee recognizes the importance of private sector 
investments in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to sustain 
the Northern Triangle of Central America's long-term stability 
and prosperity, and the need for programs to promote the rule 
of law, accountability, and transparency in such countries as a 
prerequisite for such investments.
    In order to attract such investment, respective governments 
must more convincingly combat corruption and impunity within 
their borders and defend private and indigenous property rights 
and freedom of commerce throughout the region. Government and 
private sector efforts must be coordinated on: (1) economic 
growth, including expanding opportunities for entrepreneurship 
and developing and implementing good governance reforms; (2) 
job creation; and (3) the reduction of malnutrition, poverty, 
and migration. The Secretary of State and USAID Administrator, 
as appropriate, shall encourage the governments of El Salvador, 
Guatemala, and Honduras to more aggressively engage respective 
private sectors, as represented through chambers of commerce 
and business councils, including the U.S.-Guatemala Business 
Council, on these efforts.
    The Committee also recognizes that independent Attorneys 
General are essential to combating corruption, and recommends 
funding to support their offices in such countries.
    Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State, in consultation with the heads of other 
relevant Federal agencies, shall submit to the appropriate 
congressional committees an assessment of the extent of grand 
corruption in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, including 
regarding narcotics trafficking and illicit campaign financing. 
The report shall also include a description of steps taken, and 
to be taken, to impose sanctions pursuant to the Global 
Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act (22 U.S.C. 2656 
note), and senior officials who are known, or credibly alleged, 
to have committed or facilitated such corruption. The report 
shall be submitted in unclassified form, but may include a 
classified annex.
    The Committee encourages the Secretary of State to develop 
new interventions to address drug-related violence and 
migration in Central America, with an emphasis on promoting 
positive outcomes for women and children.
    The Committee is aware of widespread sexual and gender-
based violence [SGBV] in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras 
and recommends not less than $12,000,000 for programs in these 
countries to: (1) create and expand primary and secondary 
school-based SGBV prevention programming to de-normalize SGBV; 
(2) enhance the capacity of police, judicial systems, and child 
protection systems to identify, investigate, and prosecute 
cases of SGBV through increased personnel, equipment, 
geographic coverage, and training; and (3) create and expand 
locally available medical, mental health, and legal services, 
and shelters for survivors of SGBV in rural and urban areas.
    The Committee emphasizes the importance of the Government 
of Guatemala fulfilling its commitment under the financing 
agreement for the Chixoy Reparations Plan in a timely manner.
    Assistance made available for Guatemala under the DA 
heading that exceeds the fiscal year 2017 level should be used 
to support democracy and anti-corruption programs.

    Colombia.--The Committee notes that the peace agreement in 
Colombia provides an opportunity for an alternative to armed 
conflict that contributed to a culture of violence and 
impunity, widespread poverty, displacement, and illicit drug 
trafficking. The Committee is concerned that the increase in 
assassinations of civil society activists and demobilized 
combatants in Colombia undermines prospects for peace, and 
directs the Secretary of State to engage the appropriate 
Colombian officials to strengthen justice and the rule of law 
in areas where such killings are taking place.
    The Committee directs USAID to assist the Commission for 
the Elucidation of Truth, Coexistence and Non-Repetition, and 
the Special Unit for the Search of Persons Considered 
Disappeared, which require technical assistance and trained 
investigative personnel.
    The Committee notes that none of the funds appropriated by 
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 the 
Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia [FARC] or the National 
Liberation Army of Colombia, as such entities are designated as 
FTOs pursuant to section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality 
Act (8 U.S.C. 1189).
    The Committee supports funding: (1) to reduce violence 
against women and prevent sexual violence as a weapon of armed 
conflict, including in areas formerly under FARC control; and 
(2) for Afro-Colombian and indigenous organizations to document 
cases of such violence and obtain justice for victims.

    Costa Rica.--The Committee recommends $30,000,000 for Costa 
Rica under the Central America Regional Security Initiative, of 
which $5,000,000 shall be for priority security assistance 
projects, such as the physical space requirement for the 
Special Tribunals for Organized Crime. Projects are to be 
determined in consultation with the Chief of Mission.
    Cuba.--Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, 
the Secretary of State shall submit a report to the appropriate 
congressional committees detailing: (1) the percentage of 
individuals in Cuba who are able to access the Internet and the 
infrastructure that would be needed in Cuba to significantly 
increase that percentage by 2020; (2) the ability of 
individuals in Cuba, including foreigners, to access data 
through the use of cell phones and the infrastructure that 
would be required to bring the capability to access such data 
to rural and urban areas in Cuba; (3) the impact that universal 
access to telecommunications technology would have on the 
development of increased political and economic opportunities 
in Cuba; and (4) the impact telecommunications development has 
on improving human rights in Cuba.
    El Salvador.--Not later than 45 days after enactment of the 
act, the Secretary of State shall submit a report to the 
Committee describing and assessing cooperation by the 
Government of El Salvador with investigations and prosecutions 
of those responsible for the 1981 El Mozote massacre.
    Haiti.--The Committee remains concerned with overcrowding 
and inhumane conditions at Haiti's National Penitentiary and 
other prisons, where most inmates are in pretrial detention. 
The Committee recommends not less than $1,900,000 for 
improvements at the National Penitentiary, especially to meet 
basic health care needs, and for such improvements at other 
prisons in Haiti. The Secretary of State shall consult with the 
Committee on the planned uses of funds.
    The Committee is aware that large amounts of licit and 
illicit goods enter Haiti from the Dominican Republic and, 
because of a lack of border controls, are not subject to taxes, 
fees, or confiscation. This encourages smuggling, harms 
legitimate businesses in Haiti, and contributes to corruption. 
Not later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall submit to the Committee a plan to help 
the Government of Haiti address this problem, including through 
the use of border control infrastructure, technology, and 
training for border police and customs officials.
    Prior to the initial obligation of funds appropriated by 
the act for assistance for the Government of Haiti, the 
Secretary of State shall submit a report to the Committee 
detailing steps taken by such Government, that are in addition 
to steps taken during the prior calendar year, to: (1) 
strengthen the rule of law, including by selecting judges in a 
transparent manner based on merit, reducing pretrial detention, 
and respecting the independence of the judiciary; (2) improve 
governance by increasing transparency and accountability and 
expenditures on public services; and (3) combat corruption.
    Mexico.--In order to ensure the effectiveness of U.S. 
assistance for Mexico, the Secretary of State, in consultation 
with the USAID Administrator and Government of Mexico, shall 
submit a report to the Committee not later than 90 days after 
enactment of the act detailing a multi-year strategy for 
assistance for Mexico, including metrics for measuring 
progress. The report shall: (1) include lessons learned from 
prior investments in support of the Merida Initiative; (2) 
identify specific goals with realistic timelines; and (3) 
describe how U.S. assistance will decrease the flow of illicit 
drugs into the United States, reduce drug-related violence and 
corruption in Mexico, improve the professionalism and 
accountability of Mexico's security forces, and enhance 
judicial independence.
    The Committee is aware of an alarming number of incidents, 
including injury and death, involving U.S. citizens and 
potentially tainted alcohol at tourist destinations in Mexico, 
and the lack of transparency and accountability exhibited by 
local Mexican law enforcement authorities and businesses. Not 
later than 90 days after enactment of the act, the Secretary of 
State shall submit a report to the Committee detailing: (1) the 
factors contributing to these incidents; (2) the scope and 
quality of assistance and security provided to U.S. citizens by 
Mexican authorities; and (3) options for strengthening the 
Department of State's traveler awareness programs and for 
improving consular operations to more proactively support U.S. 
citizens in Mexico.
    The Committee remains concerned that overdose deaths in the 
United States related to cocaine and methamphetamine rose by 43 
percent between 2015 and 2016, and that the majority of these 
illicit drugs enter from Mexico. Not later than 45 days after 
enactment of the act, the Secretary of State shall submit a 
report to the Committee describing how the Department of State 
will ensure that Merida Initiative funds are being used 
comprehensively to reduce illicit drug flows, including cocaine 
and methamphetamine, into the United States. The report shall 
also include an explanation of specific changes to Merida 
Initiative-funded programs in response to the 2015 framework 
and bilateral monitoring and evaluation process established by 
the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement, 
Department of State, and the Government of Mexico.
    The Committee remains concerned with disappearances and 
unresolved crimes in which the Mexican security forces are 
implicated. Of the funds available for assistance for Mexico 
under the FMF heading, 25 percent shall be withheld from 
obligation until the Secretary of State determines and reports 
to the Committee that the Government of Mexico is: (1) 
thoroughly and credibly investigating and prosecuting 
violations of human rights in civilian courts; (2) vigorously 
enforcing prohibitions against torture and the use of testimony 
obtained through torture; and (3) searching for victims of 
forced disappearances and credibly investigating and 
prosecuting those responsible for such crimes.
    Paraguay.--Prior to the obligation of funds in the act for 
assistance for the Government of Paraguay, the Secretary of 
State shall submit an update to the report required under the 
ESF heading in Senate Report 114-290, including any further 
steps taken by the Government of Paraguay to investigate 
allegations of police misconduct and to justly resolve criminal 
cases of members of the Marina Cue community.
    Venezuela.--Subsection (f) provides not less than 
$20,000,000 under the ESF heading for democracy and rule of law 
programs for Venezuela, and notes the stress Venezuelan 
refugees place on the healthcare and social welfare systems of 
neighboring countries, particularly Colombia. The Secretary of 
State and USAID Administrator, as appropriate, shall provide 
additional resources to address the needs of Venezuelan IDPs 
and refugees.
    Sec. 7046. Europe and Eurasia.
    Civil Society and Independent Journalists.--The Committee 
encourages the Department of State, USAID, and the NED to 
support civil society organizations and independent journalists 
in European and Eurasian countries where democratic progress 
and freedoms of expression and association are threatened, 
including by authoritarian regimes.
    Georgia.--The Committee remains concerned with continued 
Russian aggression toward Georgia and efforts to undermine its 
democratic development, including through the use of hostile 
propaganda. The Committee underscores support for Georgia's 
sovereignty and territorial integrity.
    Funds made available by the act for assistance for Georgia 
that are above the fiscal year 2018 level shall be made 
available for programs to build the capacity of the Government 
of Georgia to enter into a bilateral or multilateral free trade 
agreement with the United States, and to further Georgia's 
efforts toward accession to the North Atlantic Treaty 
Organization.
    The Committee recognizes the important role of the U.S. 
private sector in furthering energy independence in Georgia, 
particular in the oil and gas sector. The Committee is 
concerned with reports of an increasingly hostile environment 
for foreign investment in Georgia that may be encouraged by 
Russian interests. Funds made available by the act for 
democracy programs for Georgia shall be made available for 
programs to strengthen the rule of law, accountability, and 
transparency, particularly within the business sector.
    Not later than 45 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State shall consult with the Commitee on specific 
recommendations for protecting U.S. private sector investments 
in Georgia.

year 2018; (2) the amounts and sources of funds dedicated to 
such activities; and (3) a description of mechanisms to 
coordinate such activities among and between such agencies. The 
report shall also include an assessment of the effectiveness of 
such efforts in achieving specific goals.
    Countries Impacted by Significant Refugee Populations or 
Internally Displaced Persons.--Funds appropriated by the act 
under the DA and ESF headings shall be made available to 
implement the requirements of section 7073(b) of division K of 
Public Law 115-141 regarding assistance to countries impacted 
by significant refugee populations or internally displaced 
persons.
    Prevention of Failed States Through Public-Private 
Partnerships.--Subsection (c) requires the Secretary of State 
and USAID Administrator, in coordination with the other heads 
of other relevant Federal agencies and U.N. entities, to 
develop and implement a public-private partnerships program as 
part of a comprehensive approach to development in fragile 
states and those states threatened or adversely impacted by 
economic and political instability or violent extremism. The 
Committee recognizes that failed, failing, and fragile states 
pose a security risk to the United States, as evidenced by al-
Qaeda's presence in Afghanistan in 2001. Not later than 30 days 
after enactment of the act, the Secretary of State and USAID 
Administrator shall consult with the Committee on the 
requirements of this subsection.
    Relief and Recovery Fund.--Not later than 45 days after 
enactment of the act, and every 90 days thereafter until 
September 30, 2020, the Secretary of State and USAID 
Administrator shall submit a consolidated report to the 
Committee containing updated information on obligations and 
expenditures of such funds on a country and program basis.
    The Secretary of State shall consult with the Committee 
prior to exercising the transfer authority contained in 
subsection (b)(1). Funds made available pursuant to subsection 
(b)(2) are made available to support the efforts of entities, 
including NGOs, to assist in addressing genocide, crimes 
against humanity, and war crimes in Iraq and Syria, including 
through programs to assist in the conduct of criminal 
investigations, to develop local investigative and judicial 
skills, and to collect and preserve evidence and the chain of 
custody of evidence. Funds made available pursuant to this 
subsection are in addition to funds under section 7033(b)(4) of 
the act.
    Not later than 180 days after enactment of the act, the 
Secretary of State and USAID Administrator shall jointly submit 
a report to the Committee detailing the amount and use of 
funds, as of the date of enactment of the act, made available 
for the Relief and Recovery Fund in fiscal years 2017 and 2018 
for programs that are locally-led and intended to promote 
sustainable development.
    The uses of funds for the Relief and Recovery Fund shall be 
made available in consultation with the Chief of Mission in a 
recipient country, if a diplomatic presence exists in such 
country.
    The Committee recommends $3,000,000 to continue a 
scholarship program for refugees in Lebanon of any nationality 
who have completed secondary education.
    As the Committee is concerned with the slow disbursement of 
Relief and Recovery Funds, subsection 7069(b)(4) recommends 
assistance for certain countries from funds made available to 
the Fund in prior acts making appropriations for the Department 
of State, foreign operations, and related programs. Such 
amounts are in addition to amounts provided in fiscal year 
2019:

    Sec. 7071. International Family Planning and Women's 
Health.
    Sec. 7072. Global Internet Freedom.
    Broadcasting Board of Governors.--The Committee recommends 
$69,875,000 for BBG program delivery costs (including 
shortwave, mediumwave, FM, satellite, Internet freedom and 
affiliates). The Committee recommendation for the Internet 
freedom program is $13,800,000, which is 19.7 percent of the 
program delivery budget.
    The BBG CEO shall include in the operating plan required by 
section 7076(a) of the act total BBG resources, including funds 
and employees, supporting digital 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 
submitting such plan.
    Prioritization.--The Department of State, USAID, and BBG 
shall prioritize Internet freedom programs funded by the act to 
countries which obstruct Internet access, through legislation, 
regulation, and firewalls.
    Security Audits and Peer Reviews.--Subsection (d) requires 
that technologies funded by the act undergo comprehensive 
security audits conducted by DRL to ensure that such technology 
is secure and has not been compromised in a manner detrimental 
to the interest of the United States or to individuals and 
organizations benefiting from programs supported by such funds.
    In addition, the Department of State and BBG shall make any 
new Internet freedom technology or tool funded by the act 
available for peer review by an independent organization to 
evaluate the comparative value of such tool or technology over 
others previously developed.
    Strategic Focus.--Effective Internet freedom programs must 
support the goals and objectives of clear and comprehensive 
strategies, including the International Strategy for Cyberspace 
(May 2011) and the Department of State International Cyberspace 
Policy Strategy (March 2018). 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.

    Sec. 7073. Impact on Jobs in the United States.
    Sec. 7074. Special Defense Acquisition Fund.
    Sec. 7075. Reorganization.
    The act includes funding for, and requires that as of 
September 30, 2019, the on-board personnel levels for Foreign 
Service and Civil Service shall be: (1) for the Department of 
State, not less than 12,900 and 8,400 full-time, career/
permanent personnel, respectively; and (2) for USAID, 1,850 and 
1,600 full-time, career/permanent personnel respectively. The 
Committee also recommends funding for and directs that by 
September 30, 2019, the Department of State and USAID personnel 
levels for non-career full-time and non-career limited full-
time personnel be not less than the levels as of September 30, 
2016.
    The Committee is encouraged by the decision to relax 
restrictions on hiring of Department of State and USAID 
personnel, but requires specific information on the 
announcement and future plans with respect to Department of 
State and USAID personnel levels. The Committee notes that the 
hiring freeze implemented in January 2017 and maintained until 
recently was never justified to the Committee and resulted in a 
significant personnel reduction below previously justified and 
funded levels.
    The Committee reaffirms the important role of Foreign 
Service and Civil Service personnel in contributing to the 
national security of the United States as a first line of 
defense abroad.

Contingency Operations Training and Assistance; the Africa 
Conflict Stabilization and Border Security program; the African 
Military Education Program; the Africa Maritime Security 
Initiative; the Africa Regional Counterterrorism program; the 
Counterterrorism Partnerships Fund; and the Countering Russian 
Influence Fund.
    Sec. 7077. Rescissions.
    The act rescinds $14,000,000 from available balances 
appropriated under the INCLE heading in prior fiscal years, 
which are not allocated for a specific purposes, and 
$11,000,000 from available balances appropriated under the FMF
