                                OVERVIEW


                        Committee Recommendation

    The Committee recommends $67,557,269,000 for contingency 
operations related to the global war on terror to fund military 
operations in fiscal year 2006. This funding will ensure that 
resources, equipment, and supplies are available for our 
service members without interruption, and will enable the 
Department to avoid absorbing incremental operational costs 
from within baseline programs that are critical to future 
readiness and home-station activities. The estimates outlined 
in the Committee's recommendations are based on recent 
execution data and detailed discussions with the military 
services and operational commanders.

                         REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

    The Committee directs the Secretary of Defense to provide a 
report to the congressional defense committees within 30 days 
of enactment of this legislation on the allocation of the funds 
within the accounts listed in this chapter. The Secretary shall 
submit updated reports 30 days after the end of each fiscal 
quarter until funds listed in this chapter are no longer 
available for obligation. The Committee directs that these 
reports shall include: a detailed accounting of obligations and 
expenditures of appropriations provided in this chapter by 
program and subactivity group for the continuation of the war 
in Iraq and Afghanistan; and a listing of equipment procured 
using funds provided in this chapter. The Committee expects 
that in order to meet unanticipated requirements, the 
Department of Defense may need to transfer funds within these 
appropriation accounts for purposes other than those specified 
in this report. The Committee directs the Department of Defense 
to follow normal prior approval reprogramming procedures should 
it be necessary to transfer funding between different 
appropriations accounts in this chapter.
    Additionally, the Committee directs that the bi-annual 
reporting requirements of section 9010 of Public Law 108-287, 
the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2005, regarding 
the military operations of the Armed Forces and the 
reconstruction activities of the Department of Defense in Iraq 
and Afghanistan shall apply to the funds appropriated in this 
Act.

                           MILITARY PERSONNEL

    The Committee recommends a total of $10,204,007,000 for the 
incremental cost of pay and allowances of the Active, Reserve, 
and Guard Components deployed overseas, retained on active duty 
to support military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, or 
participating in or supporting the global war on terror. These 
include Imminent Danger Pay, Family Separation Allowance, 
Hardship Duty Pay, Basic Allowance for Housing, Foreign 
Language Proficiency Pay, Subsistence, and other military 
personnel requirements. In addition, funds are included for 
casualty benefits associated with the death or traumatic injury 
of service members.
    The following table provides details of recommendation for 
the military personnel accounts:

    Errors in Military Pay and Allowances.--The Committee is 
concerned about numerous reports concerning our injured and 
wounded military men and women returning from the wars in Iraq 
and Afghanistan who are experiencing significant problems with 
their pay. Therefore, the Committee directs the Secretary of 
Defense to submit a report that addresses (1) what actions the 
Department has taken or is taking to make sure that military 
service members receive the correct amount of pay, allowances, 
or monetary benefits to which service members are entitled each 
pay period, including basic pay, hazardous duty pay, imminent 
danger pay, basic allowance for housing, basic allowance for 
subsistence, any family separation allowance, or any cost of 
living allowance, and (2) what steps are being taken to provide 
accurate pay information to military service members and their 
spouses so they know the correct amount they should expect to 
be deposited in their accounts, and (3) what recourses military 
members and their families have to receive responsive, 
understanding support from their respective services when pay 
questions arise. For cases of when one or more overpayments 
have been made in error by the Department, the report should 
include what steps the Department is taking to either grant 
relief for the debt or to make arrangements with the military 
member for collection in a way that does not create 
unreasonable financial hardship, especially in cases where the 
military member is wounded and when families or dependents are 
involved. For cases when relief of the debt has been denied, 
the report should include those reasons for denial. For cases 
in which underpayments have occurred, the report should include 
an explanation of action by the Department to correct the 
underpayments. The report should also include what performance 
standards the Department has set for itself concerning pay 
errors and how the Department is performing against the

    Commander's Emergency Response Program [CERP].--The 
Committee recommends $423,000,000 for the Commander's Emergency 
Response Program. The amount recommended is in addition to 
$500,000,000 previously provided in fiscal year 2006. The 
Committee believes this program provides an invaluable tool for 
military commanders in the field to provide humanitarian relief 
and reconstruction projects that have an immediate and visible 
impact on the quality of life of the Iraqi and Afghan people. 
The Committee also recognizes that military commanders in the 
field are the first line of contact with the civilian 
population and therefore directs that the CERP funds should 
remain under the operational control of the military 
commanders.
    Condolence Payments.--The Committee supports the 
Department's program for condolence payments to civilians who 
have suffered injuries, or to the families of those who have 
died, as a result of combat operations. The Committee directs 
the Secretary to submit a report to the congressional defense 
committees not later than 90 days after enactment, which 
addresses: the benefits and disadvantages of a decentralized 
program; claims documentation, approval, denial and 
implementation procedures; Department of Defense guidance 
provided to the field on this matter to ensure consistency of 
best practices; and recommendations regarding the funding 
mechanism for these payments.

    Body Armor and Personal Protection Equipment.--The Marine 
Corps request includes $270,900,000 for body armor and personal 
protection equipment within the Active component operation and 
maintenance account and $36,700,000 within the Reserve 
component. The Marine Corps has since indicated that a portion 
of the Active component request will outfit Marine Corps 
reservists deploying to Iraq and would be better executed 
within the ``Operation and Maintenance, Marine Corps Reserve'' 
account. Therefore, the Committee recommends the transfer of 
$32,200,000 from the Active component to the Reserves to align 
the resources with the requirement.

    Family Support Counseling.--The President's request 
includes $43,000,000 for family support counseling. The 
Committee recognizes the critical importance of these programs 
to support our military service members and their families. 
Therefore, the Committee recommends an increase of $63,000,000 
for these programs. The Committee also recommends $10,000,000 
for Transition Assistance to Separating service members, which 
was not requested in the President's request. The amounts 
provided are to be allocated as follows:

    Cooperative Threat Reduction.--The Committee recommends 
$36,500,000 for Cooperative Threat Reduction. The Committee 
believes this will fully fund the requirement, as the 
Department of Defense has identified $8,000,000 of carryover 
funds from fiscal year 2005 that can be applied to Cooperative 
Threat Reduction activities.

    Afghanistan and Iraq Security Forces Funds.--The Committee 
recommends $5,611,133,000 to train and equip Afghan and Iraq 
security forces. The funds are provided to assist the 
governments of Afghanistan and Iraq to assume increasing 
responsibility for their nations' security. The Committee's 
recommendation is $289,700,000 below the request. The reduction 
is taken for security infrastructure in Afghanistan that will 
not be executed until the first quarter of fiscal year 2007. 
Furthermore, the Committee directs that no funds provided in 
the ``Iraq Security Forces Fund'' shall be obligated for 
infrastructure construction or repair until after the formation 
of the unified Iraqi government.

             Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Fund

2006 appropriation to date..............................................
2006 supplemental estimate..............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................  $1,958,089,000

    The Committee recommends $1,958,089,000 to initiate the 
Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Fund. The 
recommendation is $1,958,089,000 above the estimate.
    Improvised explosive devices continue to be a critical 
threat to the safety of U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq and 
Afghanistan. The use of these relatively inexpensive weapons 
has grown, as has the technical sophistication of the 
terrorists using them. To provide adequate funding and 
management flexibility to the Department in developing and 
fielding the necessary tactics, equipment and training to 
defeat these weapons, the Committee provides $1,958,089,000 in 
the ``Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Fund.'' The 
funds may only be used for activities that support the IED 
defeat objective. Within 90 days of enactment, the Department 
shall provide to the congressional defense committees an 
initial plan for managing and using the Fund. The Department is 
directed to provide a detailed description of the new JIEDD 
organization, its command structure, funding sources, and 
personnel needs (military, civilian and contractor support). In 
addition, the Department shall submit a report not later than 
30 days after the end of each fiscal quarter to the 
congressional defense committees providing assessments of the 
evolving threats, individual service requirements to counter 
the threats, and details on the obligations and expenditures of 
this Fund.

                              PROCUREMENT

    The Committee recommends $15,456,598,000 for procurement. 
This funds the Services' most urgent procurement needs, 
including improvements for force protection equipment, 
replacement, repair and reset of war-torn equipment, Army 
modularity, and essential equipment and munitions.

                          Procurement Overview

    Including the amounts set forth in this bill, the Committee 
has provided $350,000,000,000 in emergency supplemental 
appropriations to the Department of Defense for the global war 
on terror since the attacks of September 11, 2001.
    The requirement to reset the force, along with initiatives 
such as Army Modular Forces and the Marine Corps Special 
Operations Command, has driven rapid increases in the 
supplemental funds requested for procurement. This continuous 
growth is now at the point where, in some instances, the 
supplemental request for some accounts represents two to three 
times the amounts requested in the regular Defense 
appropriations bill. However, the justification material 
submitted to Congress includes only descriptive summaries for 
each account and is absent of meaningful program and budget 
information, such as requirements, pricing and delivery 
schedules. In the future, the Committee will not be able to 
fully support supplemental requests unless it is provided the 
same detailed justification and program materials that it 
receives with the annual budget request.
    The following table provides details of the recommendation 
for the procurement accounts:

    Joint Network Node [JNN].--The Committee is concerned that 
the required operational test and evaluation has not been 
completed for the JNN and that final decision on the 
acquisition strategy for JNN and future evolutionary systems is 
not yet made. The conference report accompanying the fiscal 
year 2006 Department of Defense Appropriations Act contained a 
requirement that the Army submit a plan no later than January 
15, 2006, detailing its plans to procure evolutionary 
capability in its network communications packages. The Army is 
still evaluating the program and has not submitted the report. 
Due to concerns about the Army's ability to execute the program 
while the contract strategy is still in question, the Committee 
reduces the program by $100,000,000 and redirects an additional 
$10,000,000 from ``Other Procurement, Army'' to the ``Research, 
Development, Test and Evaluation, Army'' appropriation to 
conduct the required operational testing.
    Physical Security Systems.--The Committee supports the 
Army's program to acquire non-intrusive vehicle and cargo 
inspection systems to support ongoing operations in Iraq and 
Afghanistan. Since the terrorist threat was more fully 
recognized following September 2001, industry has made progress 
in developing innovative technologies to meet this critical 
need. The Committee directs the Department of the Army to use a 
competitive procurement process to fulfill the equipment 
requirements funded in the Physical Security Systems line.

    V-22.--The Committee recommendation includes $230,000,000 
to procure three V-22 Osprey tilt rotor aircraft. The Osprey is 
the planned replacement for the CH-46E and CH-53D helicopters. 
Both legacy assets are suffering losses in battle and 
experiencing significant wear and tear in support of Operation 
Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Considering the 
CH-46E and CH-53D are no longer in production and nearing the 
end of their expected life, the Committee believes procurement 
of replacement aircraft needs to be accelerated to support 
Marine Corps operations. Now that the V-22 Osprey program has 
completed operational testing and entered full rate production, 
the Committee also believes the production efficiencies gained 
from this acceleration of replacement aircraft will result in 
substantial cost savings over the life of the program.
    UH-1Y Aircraft.--The request includes $74,000,000 to 
procure four UH-1Y aircraft. The Committee is aware that these 
funds are no longer executable in the current fiscal year. As a 
result, the Committee defers the funding to a future 
appropriations bill.
    AV-8 Series.--The supplemental request includes $31,947,000 
to provide numerous upgrades and modifications to AV-8 
aircraft. Several of the modifications appear to be upgrades 
not directly related to the global war on terror. In addition, 
a portion of the funds will not be obligated until fiscal year 
2007. The Committee, therefore, reduces the request by 
$10,000,000 and encourages the Navy to pursue modification 
efforts in the traditional appropriation process.
    H-53 Series.--The Committee recommendation transfers 
$2,000,000 from the ``Research, Development, Test and 
Evaluation, Navy'' account to the ``Aircraft Procurement, 
Navy'' account to provide Blue Force Tracker/Moving Map 
capability for H-53s. Subsequent to the budget submission, it 
was determined this work is more properly funded in the 
procurement account.
    E-2 Series.--The Committee recommendation denies $3,420,000 
requested for E-2C and C-2 cockpit instrument lighting. The 
Committee notes this request is an upgrade to existing cockpit 
lighting and is not urgently needed in support of Operation 
Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom.
    C-130 Series.--Subsequent to the budget submission, the 
Committee was informed that $3,691,000 requested for KC-130T 
ALE dispensers is no longer a requirement. As a result, the 
Committee denies this request.

    C-17 Aircraft Procurement.--The fiscal year 2007 budget 
request terminates the C-17 program at the end of the current 
multiyear procurement and closes the production line after 
acquisition of 180 C-17s. The C-17 has proven itself to be a 
reliable and capable aircraft meeting requirements for both 
strategic and intra-theater tactical airlift. In 2005, C-17s 
flew over 24,000 sorties, carrying over 228,000 passengers and 
lifting 265,000 tons of cargo. This airlift asset has proven 
invaluable in operations in the global war on terror, but at 
the cost of aging the equipment more rapidly than planned. The 
Committee is concerned that because of the heavy utilization 
supporting on-going operations, the planned inventory may not 
be sufficient to meet the current and future mobility needs of 
our armed forces and recommends $227,500,000 to fund advance 
procurement for additional aircraft procurement in fiscal year 
2008.

    Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat [JIEDD].--Funds 
requested for this effort are included in the Joint IED Defeat 
Fund.
    Combat Engineer Equipment Up-Armoring Engineering 
Development.--The request includes $25,800,000 to develop add-
on-armor [AoA] for construction engineer equipment deployed in 
support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring 
Freedom. The Committee is aware a large portion of this request 
would procure armor installation kits that is more 
appropriately funded in the ``Other Procurement, Army'' 
account. As a result, the Committee reduces the research and 
development request by $21,800,000 and addresses the armor 
purchase in the appropriate procurement account.
    Engineer Vehicle Upgrade.--The supplemental request 
includes funds to develop assault bridging capability for Heavy 
Brigade Combat Teams. In the Committee's view, this development 
effort is not an emergency requirement and should be financed 
through the annual appropriations process. The Committee, 
therefore, denies the request of $5,000,000.
    Biometrics.--The Committee is aware that the Defense 
Science Board is studying the management of the Department of 
Defense's biometrics program and will make recommendations on 
whether or not the current structure is meeting the needs of 
the warfighters dependent on the system in Iraq and in the 
Global War on Terror. The Committee directs that no management 
changes be made until the Defense Science Board completes its 
study and informs the Congress of its recommendations.

Committee recommends $5,000,000 for agriculture and rural 
development programs in Afghanistan to be administered through 
a national consortium of agriculture colleges and land-grant 
universities.
    The Committee recommends $1,489,000,000 for assistance for 
Iraq for programs and activities to enhance and improve 
security, economic opportunities, and political stability for 
the people of Iraq. From within these funds, the Committee 
provides not less than $75,000,000 to USAID to continue its 
Community Action Program, a community reconstruction and 
development program that directly engages local Iraqi officials 
and civil society in democratic decision-making, of which not 
less than $10,000,000 is to be made available for the Marla 
Ruzicka Iraqi War Victims Fund.
    The Committee supports USAID's Iraq Civil Society Program, 
which strengthens civil society organizations, independent 
media, and anti-corruption efforts in Iraq. A vibrant civil 
society and free media are key to Iraq's democratic future, and 
the Committee directs that sufficient funds be made available 
for training and technical assistance to continue this 
successful program.
    The Committee recommends $40,500,000 for assistance for 
Pakistan, of which $15,000,000 is for reimbursement of funds 
expended to meet urgent needs associated with the October 2005 
earthquake and $25,000,000 is for the reconstruction of 
hospitals and schools and the reestablishment of livelihoods.
    The Committee recommends $50,000,000 for assistance for 
Liberia for emergency employment activities, infrastructure 
development projects, democracy, human rights and rule of law 
programs, and activities to assist with the demobilization and 
reintegration of ex-rebel combatants. The Committee commends 
President Johnson-Sirleaf for her aggressive reform agenda 
(including a crackdown on corruption and development of a 
professional civil service) and her commitment to justice for 
crimes committed by Charles Taylor.
    The Committee recommends $100,000,000 for assistance for 
Jordan, a key ally in the Middle East, for programs to continue 
and accelerate economic and social reforms, including 
infrastructure development, vocational training and education. 
The Committee notes that additional assistance will enhance 
stability in the region.
    The Committee recommends an additional $35,000,000 for 
assistance for Haiti, and remains concerned with the myriad 
challenges facing that country. Of this amount, $10,000,000 is 
for programs to increase economic opportunities, $10,000,000 is 
for police reform, and $15,000,000 is for judicial and legal 
reforms.
    The Committee does not include $65,000,000 for democracy 
programs in Iran under this heading. The Committee fully funds 
the request for Iran under appropriate accounts in this bill.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER


                  IRAQ RELIEF AND RECONSTRUCTION FUND

    Sec. 1401. This provision adjusts current sector 
limitations under the heading ``Iraq Relief and Reconstruction 
Fund'' [IRRF] in Public Law 108-106 (as amended by Public Law 
108-309), and extends the availability of IRRF funds for 
obligation for an additional 4 years.

                          ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS

    Sec. 1402. This provision clarifies that supervision and 
administrative costs of the Department of Defense associated 
with a construction project funded with IRRF funds may be 
obligated at the time a construction contract is awarded, or 
for pre-existing contracts, by September 30, 2006.

                         AUTHORIZATION OF FUNDS

    Sec. 1403. This provision waives certain authorization 
requirements as there are no fiscal year 2006 foreign 
assistance and foreign relations authorization acts.

                         PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY

    Sec. 1404. This provision modifies current restrictions on 
assistance to the Palestinian Authority [PA] contained in 
Section 550 of Public Law 109-102 by conditioning the 
availability of funds for the PA on a determination by the 
Secretary of State that the PA has acknowledged Israel's right 
to exist as a Jewish state, renounced violence, and accepted 
and is adhering to all previous diplomatic Agreements and 
understandings with the United States Government, the 
Government of Israel, and the international community.
    The Committee commends the State Department's review of 
assistance for the West Bank and Gaza, and requests to be 
consulted in a timely manner on proposed deviations, if any, 
from the fiscal year 2007 budget request.

                              (RESCISSION)

    Sec. 1405. This provision rescinds $13,200,000 from funds 
appropriated under the heading ``Subsidy Appropriation'' for 
the Export-Import Bank of the United States that are available 
for tied-aid grants in Public Law 107-115 and prior Acts.

                                 SUDAN

    The Committee did not include a provision, as requested, 
that would allow funds made available for Sudan to be made 
available notwithstanding any other provision of law.

certain Coast Guard intelligence systems. This funding is 
designated as an emergency requirement.

                               CHAPTER 6


                         DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE


                         MILITARY CONSTRUCTION

    Permanent Bases in Iraq.--The Committee noted in Senate 
Report 109-52, accompanying H.R. 1268, the Emergency 
Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on 
Terror, and Tsunami Relief, 2005, requests for emergency 
military construction must be considered against two broad 
criteria before individual projects can be considered on their 
merits: ``whether the proposed spending is truly of an 
emergency nature, and whether the construction of permanent 
facilities (where proposed), rather than those of a more 
expeditionary nature, is appropriate.''
    It is the current policy of the United States to establish 
no permanent military bases in Iraq. The United States has not 
proposed to change that policy, and there is not yet a 
formalized means by which Iraq can accept or reject such a 
proposal were it offered.
    Against this backdrop, and given the long-term nature of 
military construction, both in the time it takes to construct 
and the duration for which it lasts, the Committee recommends 
approval of only those requested projects that immediately 
support operations ongoing in Iraq, rather than those requests 
which propose a longer-term presence. While these projects may 
indeed be of military value, they intend a more permanent 
presence than is the policy of the United States.
    Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan.--The Air Force recently 
provided the Committee with a base master plan for Bagram Air 
Base. However, the Committee understands that NATO will soon 
begin operations out of Bagram, yet there is no mention of 
consultation with NATO in the Bagram Air Base master plan. 
Further, there is no mention regarding the level of expected 
NATO presence or NATO cost-sharing on the installation. Until 
these questions are fully answered, the base master plan, while 
much improved, is incomplete, and funding military construction 
projects within the limited confines of Bagram is premature.
    The Committee has not provided the requested authority for 
the Secretary of Defense to transfer military construction 
funds between appropriations.

                      Military Construction, Army

2006 appropriation to date..............................  $1,737,761,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................     413,400,000
House allowance.........................................     287,100,000
Committee recommendation................................     214,344,000

    The Committee recommends $214,344,000 for Military 
Construction, Army, which is $199,056,000 below the 
administration's request and $72,756,000 below the House 
allowance. The funds are provided as follows:

    Counter IED/Urban Bypass Road, Iraq.--The Committee is 
fully supportive of efforts to stop the proliferation of 
improvised explosive devices [IED]. However, after discussion 
with Central Command officials, the Committee remains 
unconvinced that building an extensive new system of roadways 
which lack any force protection will achieve the shared goal of 
Central Command and the Committee to stop IED-related 
casualties. There are limited instances in which the Committee 
believes bypassing urban areas will provide the desired 
benefit, and the Committee has consequently recommended funding 
for these instances.
    Air Control Tower, Camp Taqaddum, Iraq.--The Committee 
understands this project is no longer needed. Therefore, no 
funds have been provided.

    The Committee recommends $150,000,000 for the Rural 
Community Advancement Program account to respond to damages 
caused by hurricanes that occurred during the 2005 calendar 
year.
    The Committee is aware of the critical role community 
facilities played during the evacuations prompted by Hurricanes 
Katrina and Rita. Several communities in the affected areas 
were compelled to rely upon make-shift facilities to house 
evacuees from neighboring counties and parishes. In providing 
assistance through the Community Facilities Grant Program, the 
Committee encourages the Secretary to consider the benefits of 
community facilities that can serve a dual use by also 
providing emergency housing or staging facility capacity during 
severe weather events and other emergencies.

                       Food and Nutrition Service


                        CHILD NUTRITION PROGRAMS

    The Committee commends the efforts of the Food and 
Nutrition Service [FNS] in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and 
notes that FNS permitted schools in hurricane affected areas to 
serve all meals free to attending children until February 28, 
2006. However, the Committee is concerned that the extreme 
devastation to schools and communities in Hurricane Katrina 
affected areas has left many local schools without the ability 
to operate a normal accountability system as required by the 
Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act. Many of these 
schools suffered a complete loss of records, cafeteria 
facilities and food service equipment. Further, many of the 
residents of these areas are homeless, dislocated, and have 
lost all personal financial records. Therefore, the Committee 
strongly encourages the Food and Nutrition Service to give 
special consideration to waivers related to the operation of 
school meal programs in communities affected by Hurricane 
Katrina.

                         DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE


            National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration


                  OPERATIONS, RESEARCH, AND FACILITIES

2006 appropriation to date..............................  $2,748,092,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................      21,000,000
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................   1,135,000,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $1,135,000,000 
for National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's 
Operations, Research, and Facilities. The recommendation is 
$1,114,000,000 above the 2006 supplemental estimate.
    The Committee recommendation includes $30,000,000, to be 
equally divided among Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana, for 
the Office of Coast Survey to conduct shipboard and autonomous 
underwater vehicle side scan sonar and multibeam mapping of 
fishing grounds to produce estimates of quantity and 
distribution of debris essential to refining cost estimates for 
the actual removal of debris. Included in this recommendation 
is funding for the Office of Response and Restoration to 
coordinate marine debris removal from tidal creeks, salt 
marshes, oyster beds, coastal wetlands, barrier islands, and 
the marine environment. In the wake of the numerous hurricanes 
of 2005, which greatly disrupted the water in the Gulf of 
Mexico, all previous mappings of those waters are now 
inaccurate. To date the only areas within the Gulf of Mexico 
that have been remapped are the vessel channels to allow for 
safe passage of ships coming in and out of the many ports along 
the Gulf of Mexico. The remainder of the Gulf of Mexico must 
also be mapped beginning with traditional fishing grounds in 
order to remove debris and begin the process of surveying 
stocks and reestablishing this element of the economy. It is 
also critical for the safety and security of our commercial and 
recreational fisherman that the fishing grounds are properly 
mapped in order to prevent catastrophic accidents from 
occurring during the upcoming fishing season. This 
appropriation will not cover complete mapping of all impacted 
gulf areas, but will provide sufficient funds to allow NOAA to 
obligate for contract surveys for the remainder of the 2006 
survey season.
    The Committee recommendation includes $1,000,000 for the 
Coastal Services Center to produce multi-hazard maps to assist 
with rebuilding the Coastal Zone affected by Hurricane Katrina 
and other hurricanes of the 2005 season. Prior to replacing the 
infrastructure along the Gulf of Mexico, new maps of water 
levels and hazards of storm surge must be produced to allow for 
fully informed decisions to be made regarding the best possible 
scenarios for rebuilding coastal communities. This analysis 
will use storm surge models, frequency, intensity and flooding 
risks to mitigate against future catastrophes caused by natural 
disasters.
    The Committee recommendation includes $2,000,000 for the 
Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-
OPS) to establish Physical Oceanographic Reporting Systems 
(PORTS) along the Gulf of Mexico, like those currently 
installed in 13 port locations around the United States. Of the 
funds provided, $500,000 shall be for each of the Ports of 
Mobile, Alabama; Pascagoula and Gulfport, Mississippi; and New 
Orleans, Louisiana. PORTS provide access to accurate real-time 
water level data which allows U.S. port authorities and 
maritime shippers to make critical decisions regarding vessel 
routes in and out of harbors, maximize vessel tonnage and limit 
passage time.
    The Committee recommendation includes $2,000,000 for CO-OPS 
to repair and replace nine tide gauge stations in the northern 
Gulf of Mexico damaged during the hurricanes of 2005. The tide 
gauges are a critical component of our Nation's Water Level 
Observing Network needed to provide critical navigational and 
storm tide information throughout extreme weather events such 
as hurricanes. The gauges provide critical observations to NOAA 
forecasters to predict storm surges and issue maritime weather 
warnings and forecasts.
    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $15,000,000 
for the National Marine Fisheries Service to provide technical 
assistance to States and industry for oyster bed and shrimp 
ground rehabilitation, and continued surveys to examine seafood 
safety and abundance of species. Critical to rebuilding the 
commercial seafood industry in the Gulf of Mexico is cleaning 
and replacing oyster and shrimp grounds; monitoring toxic 
elements for potential contamination of shrimp, fish species 
and oysters; and abundance surveys to examine population 
recovery.
    The Committee recommendation includes $100,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service to provide technical 
assistance to States and industry for oyster bed and shrimp 
ground rehabilitation, debris removal and cleaning, and to 
prepare for spat fall by planting sufficient amounts of cultch.
    The Committee recommendation includes $20,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service and the National Ocean 
Service for its expertise to assist in rebuilding coastal 
communities, especially focusing on fisheries infrastructure, 
zoning to mitigate against future catastrophes and natural 
disasters, and building standards for coastal structures.
    The Committee recommendation includes $10,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service in coordination with the Gulf 
of Mexico Fisheries Management Council and the Gulf States 
Marine Fisheries Commission to help implement planning efforts 
that will lead to capacity and effort reductions in Federal and 
State waters.
    The Committee recommendation includes $15,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service in coordination with industry 
groups to develop and implement a seafood promotion strategy 
for Gulf of Mexico fisheries.
    The Committee recommendation includes $15,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service retraining in coordination 
with the United States Department of Labor to coordinate and 
institute job for displaced fisheries workers into alternative 
occupations.
    The Committee recommendation includes $200,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service in cooperation with the Gulf 
States Marine Fisheries Commission to replace fishing gear 
damaged or lost in the hurricanes, and deploy advanced versions 
of turtle exclusion devices and by-catch reduction devices.
    The Committee recommendation includes $50,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service in coordination with State 
Marine Fisheries Agencies, State Recovery Authorities, and 
National Sea Grant Program to develop temporary marine services 
centers to cluster docking facilities, fuel, ice and 
provisions, offloading, processing and distribution and marine 
repair facilities for seafood industries.
    The Committee recommendation includes $300,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service in coordination with the 
State marine fisheries agencies, State recovery authorities, 
and National Sea Grant Program for re-development of marinas, 
piers, docks, wharves and warehouses to support commercial and 
recreational fishing, and especially investments in public 
facilities supporting working waterfronts.
    The Committee recommendation includes $50,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service in coordination with the 
Economic Development Administration for planning and support 
for fishing-related marine industrial parks to cluster 
processing and marine support businesses in ways that increase 
access to key facilities and services, and enhance intermodal 
transportation of fishery products.
    The Committee recommendation includes $90,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service in coordination with the 
Economic Development Administration for replacement of private 
fisheries infrastructure other than vessels.
    The Committee recommendation includes $10,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service to implement rules where 
appropriate, and purchase and provide 1 year of associated fees 
to equip the off-shore shrimp and reef fish fishery with 
electronic vessel monitoring systems.
    The Committee recommendation includes $10,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service to equip federally permitted 
fishing vessels with electronic logbooks to record haul-by-haul 
catch data.
    The Committee recommendation includes $20,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service or 1 percent coverage of the 
shrimp and reef fish fisheries with at-sea observer coverage to 
document catch, by-catch and profitability of these fisheries, 
for 3 years.
    The Committee recommendation includes $50,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service in coordination with State 
marine fisheries agencies, and the Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Research Administration to develop and fund a cooperative 
research program to test various gears and to monitor the 
recovery of Gulf of Mexico fishery resources and fisheries.
    The Committee recommendation includes $100,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service and National Ocean Service in 
coordination with the Economic Development Administration and 
Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission for direct assistance 
to fishers and seafood workers to undertake cleanup activities 
and begin repairing damaged facilities.
    The Committee recommendation includes $20,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service in cooperation with New 
England coastal States to assist shellfishermen in New 
England's coastal communities who suffered severe economic 
impact from last year's toxic red tide outbreak.
    The Committee recommendation includes $25,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service, National Ocean Service, and 
Oceanic and Atmospheric Research Administration to employ 
fishers and vessel owners in marine debris and living marine 
resource assessment activities.

2006 appropriation to date.............................. $10,924,270,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................   1,025,236,000
House allowance.........................................     775,236,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,025,236,000

    The Committee recommendation fully supports the 
administration's request of $1,025,236,000 for the Hurricane 
Katrina related cost impact on shipbuilding programs. The 
damage to the gulf coast region shipbuilding industrial base by 
Hurricane Katrina is unprecedented and has a direct impact on 
national security. Funding provided in this bill and previously 
provided in Public Law 109-148 provide resources to replace 
destroyed or damaged equipment, business disruption, and 
related shipyard workforce costs at gulf coast shipyards 
impacted by hurricanes in the gulf coast region in 2005. These 
funds also provides resources to replace contractor furnished 
equipment for other Navy ship programs damaged or destroyed at 
vendors located in this region and for associated overhead 
impacts resulting from equipment delivery delays.
    It is in the best interest of Department of the Navy and 
national security to restore compromised shipyard capability. 
Slow shipyard restoration causes significant risk of cost 
increases and delayed ship deliveries to the Navy whose fleet 
size is the smallest since World War I.
    It is also in the interest of the Navy and United States 
Government to ensure industry seeks reimbursement by insurance 
companies to the maximum extent. The Committee expects the 
shipbuilders to reimburse the Navy with any insurance receipts 
they receive for interruptions to their business caused by 
Hurricane Katrina or other hurricanes of the 2005 season to the 
extent payment for that item of damage was made with 
supplemental funding. The Committee expects the Navy or 
appropriate agency to have complete visibility into the 
insurance claim process to ensure no redundant funding is 
received.

2006 supplemental estimate..............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................       3,750,000

    Funds totaling $3,750,000 are recommended subject to an 
official budget request, that includes designation of the 
entire amount as an emergency requirement, being transmitted by 
the President to the Congress. Of the total, $1,000,000 of the 
funding shall be used for Flood Plain Management Services to

prone areas of Hawaii; and $2,750,000 of the funding shall be 
used to accelerate the Delta Islands and Levees Feasibility 
Study to develop the Delta Risk Management Strategy.

                              CONSTRUCTION

2006 appropriation to date..............................  $2,449,697,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................     100,000,000
House allowance.........................................     100,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     122,850,000

    The Committee is aware of the rapidly eroding coastline of 
south Louisiana. The wetlands surrounding the greater New 
Orleans metropolitan area operate as a natural buffer to lessen 
storm impacts, and are an important part of the overall storm 
damage reduction system. Nourishing and rebuilding these 
wetlands will increase the effectiveness of the levees and 
floodwalls of New Orleans. Therefore, the Committee has 
recommended bill language directing the Corps to use 
$122,850,000 at full Federal expense to reduce the risks of 
storm surge and storm damage to the greater New Orleans 
metropolitan area by restoring the surrounding wetlands, and to 
aid in the reduction of risk to both loss of life and damage to 
homes, businesses, and local infrastructure in the metropolitan 
area. The Corps is further directed to use these funds in the 
following manner: $10,000,000 to modify the Caernarvon 
Freshwater Diversion structure or its operations; $10,000,000 
to protect the shoreline along Lake Borgne in St. Bernard 
Parish, Louisiana; $15,000,000 to protect the shoreline and 
create marsh along Irish Bayou and Chef Menteur Pass in Orleans 
Parish, Louisiana; $15,000,000 to create marsh along the 
Rigolets in Orleans and St. Tammany Parishes, Louisiana; 
$25,000,000 to create marsh in the Golden Triangle in Orleans 
and Jefferson Parishes, Louisiana; $15,000,000 to restore the 
ridge along Bayou La Loutre in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana; 
and $10,000,000 to protect the shoreline along the Barataria 
Basin Landbridge in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana.
    Additional funds of $22,850,000 are recommended subject to 
an official budget request for a specific dollar amount that 
includes designation of the entire amount as an emergency 
requirement, being transmitted by the President to the 
Congress.
    Of the funding recommended, $20,850,000 is recommended for 
the following projects to mitigate the flood threat to the 
Sacramento, California, metropolitan area.
    These contingency funds should be distributed as follows:
  --$6,250,000 to accelerate the South Sacramento Streams, 
        California Project.
  --$11,300,000 to accelerate construction of the Sacramento 
        River Bank Protection Project, California.
  --$3,300,000 to accelerate the American River (Common 
        Features), California project.
    Of the funding recommended, $2,000,000 at full Federal 
expense, is recommended for the Hawaii water systems technical 
assistance program (including technical studies of ditch and 
water supply systems, as identified by the State of Hawaii) to 
provide planning and technical analysis relating to the Kaloko 
and Morita Reservoir dams and other high hazard facilities, as 
identified by the State.

                       OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE

2006 appropriation to date..............................  $2,296,627,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................       4,700,000

    Funds totaling $4,700,000 are recommended, subject to an 
official budget request, that includes designation of the 
entire amount as an emergency requirement, being transmitted by 
the President to the Congress. The funding shall be used to 
restore navigation channels and harbors to pre-storm conditions 
and to repair flood damage reduction and other projects in 
States affected by Hurricane Katrina and other hurricanes of 
the 2005 season. The funding provided is based on Corps of 
Engineers' estimates of the requirements for the Texas Gulf 
Coast. The Committee expects the funds provided herein shall be 
expended substantially in accordance with those estimates.

                 FLOOD CONTROL AND COASTAL EMERGENCIES

2006 appropriation to date..............................  $2,277,965,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................   1,360,000,000
House allowance.........................................   1,360,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,001,500,000

    The Committee understands that additional funds will be 
needed to provide 100 year level of protection for the New 
Orleans Metropolitan area. The Administration has briefed 
members of Congress that this may require as much as an 
additional $6,000,000,000, but has not transmitted any request 
for additional funding to the Committee. The Committee notes 
that this 100 year level of protection is a regulatory 
requirement pertaining to flood insurance through the Federal 
Emergency Management Agency and that the estimates to support 
this number are preliminary. Contained within the fiscal year 
2006 Energy and Water Conference Report is funding for the Army 
Corps of Engineers to carryout studies to determine this higher 
level of protection and the interim results are due in June 
2006. Additionally, the Interagency Performance Evaluation Task 
Force report is also due by June 2006. The Committee expects 
that this report will describe the results of the forensic 
examination for the levee failures as well as describe the 
overall condition of the entire levee system and any weaknesses 
therein. Before the Committee can provide additional funding 
for the levee system in South Louisiana, it is critical that 
the Administration provide a definitive request, including a 
more rigorous accounting of needs than has been provided thus 
far.
    Funds totaling $2,001,500,000 are recommended to continue 
repairs to flood and storm damage reduction projects. These 
projects are to be funded at full Federal expense.
    The Committee has recommended $530,000,000 for construction 
of closures and pumping plants at the 17th Street, Orleans, and 
London Avenue Canals. Within the funds recommended, the Corps 
is expected to remove the existing pumping stations at the 
heads of the three canals and perform necessary work to realign 
the sumps with the new pumping stations at the mouths of the 
canals.
    The Committee is concerned about the interim pumping 
capacity the Corps is proposing at the temporary closures on 
the 17th Street, Orleans and London Avenue drainage canals. In 
particular, the Committee is concerned that the interim pumping 
capacity for the 17th Street Canal is proposed to be roughly 
one-fourth of the capacity of the existing number 6 pumping 
station on the canal. The Committee directs that the Corps 
provide adequate temporary pumping capacity to evacuate 
expected flows from the existing pumping stations in the three 
drainage canals in order to minimize interior flooding.
    The Committee recommendation recommends $170,000,000 for 
levee armoring. The Committee has increased this amount in 
order to allow the Corps to better strengthen the levee system 
at transition points as well as in areas that face direct 
attack from wave action.
    The Committee recommends $350,000,000 to construct 
navigable closures, one near Seabrook on the Industrial Canal 
and the other on the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway west of its 
confluence with the Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet.
    The Committee recommendation includes $60,000,000 for 
incorporation of non-Federal levees on the west bank of the 
Mississippi River in Plaquemines Parish in order to provide 
improved storm surge protection and to protect evacuation 
routes.
    The Committee rcommends $250,000,000 for storm proofing 
interior pump stations to ensure their reliability during 
hurricanes, storms and high water events.
    The Committee has been informed that funds requested under 
this account are insufficient to fully fund the items requested 
or other emergency needs. Additional funds of $641,500,000 are 
recommended subject to an official budget request for a 
specific dollar amount that includes designation of the entire 
amount as an emergency requirement, being transmitted by the 
President to the Congress. These contingency funds should be 
distributed as follows:
  --$190,000,000 is provided for closures and pump stations for 
        the three interior drainage canals. The Committee 
        understands that the increase is due to refinements to 
        the cost estimates and an increase in the project 
        scope. Some of the additional funds would be used to 
        remove the existing pumping stations and realign the 
        drainage canals to direct interior flows to the new 
        pump stations rather than having to pump the water 
        twice within a few miles on the canal to evacuate the 
        drainage water to Lake Ponchartrain.
  --$20,000,000 is provided for the navigable closures on the 
        Industrial Canal and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. 
        The Committee understands that additional funds are 
        needed due to refinements of the cost estimates for 
        these structures.
  --$30,000,000 is provided for repairs to non-Federal levees 
        in Terrebonne Parish. The Committee understands that 
        these local levees were damaged by the effects of 
        Hurricane Rita. The Committee believes that repairs to 
        these levees should be undertaken at Federal expense. 
        This is consistent with the treatment of the non-
        Federal levees in Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard, and 
        Plaquemines Parishes as proposed and funded in the 
        third disaster supplemental.
  --$160,000,000 is provided to incorporate the West Bank non-
        Federal levee in Plaquemines Parish. The Committee 
        understands that this is the current estimate to 
        increase the levee height to provide storm surge 
        protection. The large increase is due to the poor soil 
        conditions in the area.
  --$94,000,000 is provided to incorporate the East Bank non-
        Federal levee in Plaquemines Parish. Incorporation of 
        this levee was not included in the 2006 supplemental 
        estimate however; the Committee believes it is prudent 
        to include this levee as well. The Committee notes that 
        terminal facilities for the Port of Plaquemines are 
        located throughout these leveed areas and that this 
        port facility is the eleventh busiest port in the 
        Nation handling nearly 56,000,000 tons of cargo in 
        2003, the latest year for which statistics are 
        available. Further, the Committee understands that much 
        of the support services and workers for the off-shore 
        oil and gas industry are concentrated in Plaquemines 
        parish as well as other significant infrastructure.
  --$130,000,000 is provided for additional levee armoring. The 
        Committee is very concerned that the previous estimates 
        for levee armoring given by the Administration were 
        well over $600,000,000. The Committee recognizes that 
        the original estimate may have been based on armoring 
        all the levees and the current estimate is only for 
        selected transition areas. However, the Committee 
        believes the current request is much too low. The 
        Committee believes that not only transition areas need 
        to be protected, but those levees that are going to 
        face direct attack from long-period ocean waves should 
        also be armored.
  --$17,500,000 shall be used to restore previously 
        appropriated emergency funds for 13 flood protection 
        projects damaged in previous disasters in Brockway; 
        Brookville; Burgettstown; Canonsburg; James G. Fulton 
        Chartiers Creek; Leetonia; Meyersale; Millvalle; New 
        Kensington; Saw Mill Run Pittsburgh; Sykesville; 
        Tarentum; and Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania. Funds for 
        these projects were withdrawn shortly after Katrina 
        struck the Gulf Coast to address immediate needs. 
        Previous supplemental appropriations have not been 
        directed to repay these reprogrammed funds in order to 
        make these storm repairs.

requirement.

              ACQUISITION, CONSTRUCTION, AND IMPROVEMENTS

2006 appropriation to date..............................  $1,130,382,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................      62,160,000
House allowance.........................................      80,755,000
Committee recommendation................................     191,844,000

    The Committee recommends $191,844,000, an increase of 
$129,684,000 above the amount requested, for repair and major 
reconstruction of facilities damaged by Hurricane Katrina and 
other hurricanes of the 2005 season. Of the total recommended, 
$7,000,000 is for the relocation of the Gulfport Coast Guard 
Station, $80,914,000 is for the repair and reconstruction of 
the New Orleans Integrated Support Command Center, and 
$103,930,000 is for Katrina-related costs associated with 
material, equipment, facilities, and labor. This funding is 
designated as an emergency requirement.

                  Federal Emergency Management Agency

    The Committee recognizes all the work the White House, the 
Department of Homeland Security [DHS], the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency [FEMA], the Government Accountability Office 
[GAO], and the DHS Inspector General have done in reviewing and 
analyzing the Federal response to Hurricane Katrina. These 
investigations have put forth many recommendations intended to 
strengthen the way the Federal Government prepares and responds 
to natural and man-made disasters.
    The Committee is concerned the Federal Government will not 
have ample time to review and implement these recommendations 
prior to the upcoming hurricane season, which begins in June 
2006. It is imperative DHS implement changes that can be done 
easily and without the need for additional resources prior to 
June 1, 2006. The DHS Preparedness Directorate and FEMA are to 
brief the Committee, no later than May 30, 2006, on the 
differences in the preparedness, response, and recovery system 
as of May 2006 in comparison to a year ago. DHS is also 
expected to inform the Committee on the funding associated with 
implementing the recommendations listed in ``The Federal 
Response to Hurricane Katrina Lessons Learned''.

                 ADMINISTRATIVE AND REGIONAL OPERATIONS

2006 appropriation to date..............................    $236,228,000

House allowance.........................................      70,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      71,800,000

    The Committee recommends $71,800,000, an increase of 
$1,800,000 from the amount requested, for ``Administrative and 
Regional Operations.'' Of the total amount recommended, 
$70,000,000 is provided for the reconstruction and improvement 
of existing public alert, warning and crisis communications 
systems in the gulf coast and $1,800,000 is provided for 
additional personnel needed in the Office of National Security 
Coordination. This funding is designated as an emergency 
requirement.
    The Committee understands there are numerous vacancies and 
``acting'' individuals in senior leadership positions in FEMA's 
Regional Offices and Headquarters. The Committee believes 
strong permanent leadership is vital for carrying out FEMA's 
mission. The Committee expects FEMA to fill these positions 
with well-qualified individuals as quickly as possible.

            PREPAREDNESS, MITIGATION, RESPONSE, AND RECOVERY

2006 appropriation to date..............................    $202,017,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................       5,000,000
House allowance.........................................      10,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      10,000,000

    The Committee recommends $10,000,000, an increase of 
$5,000,000 from the amount requested for ``Preparedness, 
Mitigation, Response, and Recovery'' for ongoing recovery 
efforts in response to Hurricane Katrina and other hurricanes 
of the 2005 season. Of the total amount recommended, $5,000,000 
is provided for additional personnel; $1,500,000 is provided 
for a logistics management system; $2,000,000 is provided for 
the pre-positioned essential equipment program; and $1,500,000 
for the disaster claims system. This funding is designated as 
an emergency requirement.
    Additional Personnel.--The Committee recommendation 
includes $5,000,000 for FEMA to hire 60 full-time equivalents 
[FTEs]. The Committee recognizes the urgency in FEMA being 
adequately staffed and the difficulty the agency faces 
attracting and hiring well-qualified professionals. FEMA is to 
brief the Committee, no later than May 30, 2006, on the hiring 
initiatives to meet its staffing requirements and its staffing 
plan.
    Logistics Management System.--The Committee understands 
FEMA lacks technology and information management systems which 
are critical to track shipments and manage inventories. The 
Committee is disappointed there is no funding requested for 
strengthening this aspect of FEMA. Included in the total amount 
recomended is $1,500,000 for FEMA to begin to bring its 
logistic management system into the 21st century. Obligation of 
this funding is available once the FEMA is to submit an 
expenditure plan to the Committee prior to the obligation of 
these funds.
    Pre-positioning Essential Items/Equipment.--The Committee 
is concerned with FEMA's reliance on other Federal agencies for 
the procurement and supply of essential items and equipment, 
including satellite communications. It is difficult for other 
Federal agencies to stockpile supplies for FEMA. An example of 
this is the Department of Defense's inability to provide 
additional Meals-Ready-To-Eat after Hurricane Katrina because 
of a limited supply left in the War Reserve Stockpile. FEMA is 
to brief the Committee, no later than May 30, 2006, on its 
procurement plan for essential items and equipment, including 
satellite communications. This plan should include how FEMA is 
working with both Federal agencies and the private industry to 
ensure ample supplies are available to meet future disaster 
needs.
    Disaster Claims System.--Both the DHS Inspector General and 
GAO have conducted several audits and investigations on the 
assistance provided to individuals and households as a result 
of Hurricane Katrina and other hurricanes of the 2005 season. 
These audits found weaknesses in the processes FEMA utilizes to 
review registration for disaster relief and approve assistance 
payments. The Committee is disappointed no funding is requested 
to strengthen the claims process.
    The Committee understands FEMA is developing an Enterprise 
Content Management System to enhance its claims processing 
capacity. The Committee provides an additional $1,500,000 for 
this purpose. Obligation of this funding is available once the 
Secretary submits an expenditure plan to the Committee.
    Contracting.--GAO's report on ``Agency Management of 
Contractors Responding to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita'' found 
problems with the implementation of the Robert T. Stafford 
Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act preference for 
utilizing contractors residing or doing business in the 
affected areas. The Committee believes the use of these 
contractors is important for revitalizing local economies in 
the gulf coast. FEMA is encouraged to issue additional Robert 
T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act 
guidance to clarify how to determine if the company was in the 
affected area prior to the disaster and how preferences can be 
applied in the contract process.
    Mass Evacuation.--The Committee recognizes there were many 
problems evacuating individuals with disabilities and severe 
medical conditions before and after Hurricane Katrina. Although 
evacuation planning should be conducted by States, the White 
House report ``The Federal Response to Hurricane Katrina 
Lessons Learned'' recommends the Federal Government have a 
coordinated plan to evacuate this population when States are 
overwhelmed. DHS, in consultation with the Department of 
Transportation and the Department of Health and Human Services, 
is to provide a report by June 30, 2006 on the Federal plan to 
identify and evacuate special needs populations. The report is 
to incorporate efforts already underway by DHS as required by 
Public Law 109-90.
    Assessing Emergency Response.--After Hurricane Andrew tore 
through southern Florida in 1992, Congress asked the National 
Academy of Public Administration (the Academy) to conduct a 
comprehensive and objective study of the Federal, State, and 
local government's capacity to respond promptly and effectively 
to major natural disasters. In February 1993, the Academy 
issued the study report, ``Coping with Catastrophe: Building an 
Emergency Management System to Meet People's Needs in Natural 
and Manmade Disaster.'' The Committee believes many of the 
recommendations made in this report are still practical, 
relevant, and applicable to the responses to Hurricanes 
Katrina, Rita and Wilma as well as other disasters. The 
Academy's 1993 findings and recommendations related to the 
role, organization, and operation of the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency should be reexamined, particularly after the 
incorporation of FEMA into the Department of Homeland Security. 
The Committee is also interested in a review of the 
Department's overall organizational structure as it relates to 
preparedness, mitigation, emergency response and recovery and 
the pros and cons of these functions being separated among 
components of the Department. Therefore, the Committee directs 
the Secretary of Homeland Security to use the section 504 
authority in Public Law 108-334 to provide $750,000 for the 
purpose of contracting with the National Academy of Public 
Administration for such a review. This notification is to be 
submitted to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
within 30 days from the date of enactment of this act and the 
funds to be made available to the Academy to begin the study 
within 30 days of approval.

    The Committee recommends $10,600,000,000 for the Disaster 
Relief Fund [DRF]. Included in this amount is the 
$9,400,000,000 requested by the President for the following: 
$2,000,000,000 for on-going individual and housing assistance 
needs; $5,000,000,000 for State/local infrastructure repair, 
grant and mitigation assistance; and $2,400,000,000 for other 
needs, including, FEMA mission assignments, on-going debris 
removal and other response requirements. An additional 
$1,200,000,000 is made available to carry out section 2503 of 
this chapter. This funding is designated as an emergency 
requirement.
    Housing Policy.--The Committee continues to be frustrated 
with the lack of a housing policy for the gulf coast. It is 
critical a comprehensive housing policy be developed 
immediately so appropriate resources can be provided for this 
region. The Committee is encouraged FEMA is working with the 
Department of Housing and Urban Development to assist States 
and local entities with their housing plans. The Secretary of 
Homeland Security shall submit an expenditure plan for housing 
prior to the obligation of DRF funds for this purpose.

House allowance.........................................       3,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      83,000,000

    The Committee recommends $83,000,000 for historic 
preservation needs. Of these funds, $3,000,000 is for financial 
assistance to State Historic Preservation Offices in States 
that were damaged by Hurricane Katrina and other hurricanes of 
the 2005 season. These funds will assist the States in 
completing reviews under section 106 of the National Historic 
Preservation Act.
    The remaining $80,000,000 shall be used to establish a 
grant program to facilitate the repair of thousands of historic 
structures that were damaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. 
These funds may be used to make grants for the preservation, 
stabilization, rehabilitation, and repair of historic houses 
and designated ``Main Street'' commercial properties listed in

    The Committee recommends $55,400,000 for construction, 
including immediate cleanup and facility repair needs at 
National Parks, related to the consequences of Hurricane 
Katrina and other hurricanes of the 2005 season. Within the 
amount provided, the Committee encourages the Park Service to 
provide funding for the purchase of a boat to replace the World 
War II era landing craft vessel now in use at Gulf Islands 
National Seashore. In the aftermath of recent hurricanes, a 
much greater workload has significantly increased the stress on 
the current boat, which has already far exceeded its expected 
useful life. The new vessel would be used to transport 
personnel, equipment, supplies and materials for cleanup and 
reconstruction projects in both the Mississippi and Florida 
Districts of the Seashore.

2006 supplemental estimate..............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................      32,500,000

    The Committee recommendation includes $32,500,000 for 
construction and renovation of Job Corps centers damaged by 
hurricanes of the 2005 season. Of this amount, $27,000,000 is 
for reconstruction of the Gulfport, Mississippi Job Corps 
center, and $5,500,000 for the New Orleans, Louisiana Job Corps 
center. The House did not consider this recommendation, for 
which there was no budget request.
    The Committee rejects the administration's proposal to 
rescind $75,000,000 of appropriations for construction and 
renovation of Job Corps centers. The Committee expects the 
Department of Labor to make these funds available immediately 
for Job Corps facilities and expansion activities.

2006 supplemental estimate..............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................       2,000,000

    The Committee recommendation includes $2,000,000 for the 
Department of Labor Inspector General to support audits and 
investigations related to Hurricane Katrina and other 
hurricanes of the 2005 season. The House included these funds 
as part of the appropriation to the Inspector General of the 
Department of Homeland Security, as proposed by the 
administration.

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES


              Health Resources and Services Administration

2006 supplemental estimate..............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................       6,000,000

    The Committee recommendation includes $6,000,000 for 
Community Health Centers to establish a communications network 
among Community Health Centers, the Departments of Health and 
Major Medical Centers in States affected by Hurricane Katrina 
and other hurricanes of the 2005 season. Funds are also 
provided for satellite phones and other communications 
equipment. The administration did not request funds for this 
activity.
    During Hurricane Katrina, a large portion of the public 
health infrastructure in Mississippi was destroyed. Providing 
health care services to survivors and evacuees was severely 
hampered because no phone services or other communications 
devices were available to coordinate care. The funds 
recommended by the Committee would set up a communications 
network and provide satellite phones and other communications 
equipment to provide prompt health care in the event of future 
disasters.
    The Committee expects these funds to be distributed by June 
30, 2006 so that systems can be in place early in the hurricane 
season. Where they exist, State associations representing 
community health centers should be the primary recipients of 
these funds and coordinate distribution to other entities.

    The Committee recommendation includes $20,000,000, to be 
available until expended, for mosquito and other pest abatement 
activities in States affected by Hurricane Katrina and other 
hurricanes of the 2005 season. The Committee notes that 
mosquito and other insect activity in storm-damaged areas of 
the gulf coast has gone beyond the level of nuisance and is now 
a public health hazard that could lead to the spread of 
infectious diseases.

$645,000,000 provided in Public Law 109-148, these resources 
will reimburse schools for the additional costs they incurred 
educating students displaced by the gulf hurricanes.
    The Committee recommendation includes an additional 
$350,000,000 for the Temporary Impact Aid program authorized in 
the Hurricane Education Recovery Act. These funds are available 
until expended.
    The Committee recommendation includes an additional 
$30,000,000 under the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary 
Education for grants to institutions of higher education 
impacted by the Gulf hurricanes of the 2005 calendar year.

    Fitness and Training Complex, NCBC Gulfport, Mississippi.--
The Committee has learned from officials at NCBC Gulfport, 
Mississippi, that $24,140,000 will be sufficient funding to 
provide for this facility rather than $32,800,000, as requested 
by the administration. Therefore, the Committee recommends 
$24,140,000.

                     DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS


                      Departmental Administration


                      CONSTRUCTION, MAJOR PROJECTS

2006 appropriation to date..............................    $974,600,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................     600,000,000
House allowance.........................................     550,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     623,000,000

    The Committee recommends $623,000,000 for Construction, 
Major Projects, which is $23,000,000 above the administration's 
request and $73,000,000 above the House allowance.
    Of the funds provided, $561,000,000 shall be for a 
replacement Veterans Affairs Medical Center in New Orleans, 
Louisiana and $62,000,000 shall be for the disposal and cleanup 
of the land associated with the VA's medical facilities in 
Gulfport, Mississippi.
    The Committee is supportive of the VA's request to replace 
the damaged VA Medical Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. The 
Committee previously appropriated $75,000,000 for planning and 
design associated with the construction of a new medical 
facility in New Orleans. Subsequent to the appropriation of 
$75,000,000, the VA transmitted to the Congress a report on 
reestablishing a VA Medical Center in New Orleans. As part of 
this report, the VA estimated a total of $636,000,000 as the 
cost for accomplishing this goal. The recommendation in this 
supplemental brings total funds appropriated for the 
construction of a new medical facility to $636,000,000, thus 
fully funding the project. However, the Committee is concerned 
about future flood risk for any new facility constructed in the 
New Orleans floodplain. Therefore, the Committee encourages the 
Department to explore all options for the future site of the 
replacement medical center and must take into account the 
probability of flooding before a final decision is made or 
location is chosen. The construction of the new medical center 
should be designed to withstand future hurricanes. The 
Committee also encourages the Department to establish an 
affiliation with another medical facility and/or current 
affiliations and consider constructing a shared facility. 
However, the Committee cautions the Department not to enter 
into an agreement where the VA pays for more than its share in 
the name of collaboration.
    The Committee recommendation also includes $62,000,000 for 
the land disposal environmental cleanup and debris removal of 
the Gulfport, Mississippi VA Medical Center. The attached bill 
directs the Department of Veterans Affairs to transfer the 
property associated with the VA's medical facility to the city 
of Gulfport, Mississippi and includes $50,000,000 to compensate 
the VA. Before any such transfer may take place, the VA shall 
undertake an environmentally cleanup of the property. The 
Committee recommendation includes $12,000,000 for this purpose.
    The Committee recommendation does not include a general 
provision, proposed in the supplemental request, to provide the 
Department of Veterans Affairs with the authority to transfer 
$122,000,000 of previously appropriated funds from the 
``Veterans Health Administration-Medical Services'' account to 
other accounts in the Department. The Committee recommendation 
does, however, include language making available until expended 
the $198,625,000, originally provided in Public Law 109-148. In 
addition, the Committee has provided the Department transfer 
authority for these funds.

                             RELATED AGENCY


                      Armed Forces Retirement Home


                          (MAJOR CONSTRUCTION)

2006 appropriation to date..............................................
2006 supplemental estimate..............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................    $176,000,000

    The Committee recommends $176,000,000 for major 
construction for the Armed Forces Retirement Home--Gulfport, 
Mississippi (AFRH--Gulfport, Mississippi), $176,000,000 above 
both the administration's request and the House allowance. The 
Committee appreciates the heroic perseverance of the Armed 
Forces Retirement Home residents and staff in Gulfport, 
Mississippi, and Washington, DC, in the aftermath of Hurricane 
Katrina. Further, the Committee understands its obligation to 
the residents of the Home, veterans who sacrificed much for the 
United States and performed nobly when called to duty. These 
veterans deserve nothing less than the average citizen 
receiving aid from the Federal Government in the aftermath of 
this disaster. They deserve the firm assurance of their 
Government that they will be allowed to return home as soon as 
possible.
    Therefore, the Committee has provided additional funding, 
to be combined with prior unobligated balances, which shall be 
used to construct a new multi-building, campus-style facility 
on the site occupied by the former AFRH--Gulfport, Mississippi. 
This facility will allow the residents to be fully reintegrated 
into the Gulfport community while still providing for the 
facility to be a component of the master plan for the gulf 
coast as it rebuilds. This plan will also allow the continued 
close relationship between AFRH--Gulfport, Mississippi and the 
Seabees at NCBC Gulfport, Mississippi, who provided critical 
assistance to the residents of AFRH--Gulfport, Mississippi 
during and after Hurricane Katrina.

                        EMERGENCY RELIEF PROGRAM

2006 appropriation to date..............................  $2,750,000,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee Recommendation................................     594,000,000

    The Committee recommends an additional $594,000,000 to 
carry out emergency relief [ER] projects for which a formal 
request has been submitted to the Federal Highway 
Administration [FHWA] and which are included in the current 
FHWA ER backlog table, and for projects that are currently 
being considered for inclusion in the FHWA ER backlog program. 
The committee notes that the recent catastrophic failure of the 
Kaloko Reservoir Dam on the Island of Kauai, HI resulted in 
substantial damage to the Kuhio Highway. As a result, funds 
have also been included in this account to cover the current 
estimates for the repair of the Kuhio Highway.

2006 appropriation to date..............................................
2006 supplemental estimate..............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................    $200,000,000

    The Committee recommends $200,000,000 in additional funds 
for grants to State and local governmental entities directly 
affected by Hurricane Katrina for expenses related to emergency 
response and recovery of public transportation equipment, 
facilities, and services, as determined by the Secretary of 
Transportation. Under this account, the Secretary may waive 
Federal matching share requirements or any other statutory 
Federal transit program requirement, as the Secretary 
determines. The Secretary may also allow urbanized areas that 
he determines to have been directly affected by Hurricane 
Katrina and having a population of 200,000 or greater to use 
Federal transit funds for operating assistance as well as 
capital projects to facilitate response and recovery. The 
Secretary's authority under this section shall expire 2 years 
after the date of enactment of this section, unless otherwise 
determined by the Secretary for a compelling need.

                    Federal Railroad Administration


                CAPITAL GRANTS FOR RAIL LINE RELOCATION

2006 appropriation to date..............................................
 2006 supplement estimate...............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................    $700,000,000

    The Committee recommends $700,000,000 for the Rail Line 
Relocation Capital Grant program in order to mitigate damage to 
this important link to transport commerce in the gulf coast 
region. These funds would be used to relocate tracks that are 
currently located along the coast of Mississippi and provide a 
connection within the footprints of tracks farther north and 
outside the scope of any anticipated hurricane danger. In 
particular, the Committee is concerned with the movement of 
commerce and the safety of citizens in the gulf coast region as 
a result of the effects of Hurricane Katrina and the risks 
posed by future hurricanes.
    The damaged railroad line is a major east and west freight 
corridor adjacent to the Mississippi gulf coast. It is vitally 
important to numerous Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama 
industries and essential to the successful operations of major 
Gulf of Mexico ports. The rail line in Mississippi sustained 
major damage and total destruction in some areas as a result of 
Hurricane Katrina's powerful winds and water surges: eleven 
bridges were destroyed, more than 38 miles of track were a 
complete loss, signaling and safety systems were demolished, 
and many track beds were completely washed out along the rail 
corridor. As a result of Hurricane Katrina, the rail line was 
out of commission for 143 days and has since re-opened only on 
a temporary basis.
    Even prior to Katrina, residents, business leaders, and 
local and State officials seriously considered relocating the 
rail line inland from its present location to alleviate 
burgeoning traffic and safety concerns. Gridlock and traffic 
congestion associated with the railroad continually worsened as 
the region's tourism industry grew. Along Mississippi's gulf 
coast alone, there are 170 grade crossings, and risks to 
motorists and pedestrians have increased exponentially as 
development has occurred. From January 2000 to August 2005, 90 
grade crossing accidents involving trains were reported to the 
Federal Railroad Administration.

House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................................

    Deployment of Safety Overlay Technology.--Within the 
amounts made available for the deployment of railroad safety 
overlay technology made available in the conference agreement 
accompanying Public Law 109-115, the Committee expects that 
funds shall be allocated for the purpose of deploying train 
control technology for which the FRA is currently considering a 
product safety plan. This initiative should build upon an 
existing train control demonstration project to which the FRA 
has contributed funding and which has successfully demonstrated 
train control overlay technology in freight revenue service.

2006 appropriation to date.............................. $16,310,000,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................     202,000,000
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................     202,000,000

    The Committee recommends $202,000,000 in additional funds 
for section 8 tenant- and project-based rental housing 
assistance. The administration proposed the same funding level 
solely for vouchers. These funds, however, will help cover any 
shortfalls in rental contracts supported by section 8 funds 
appropriated under Public Law 109-148 (December 30, 2005) to 
assist previously assisted HUD tenants in obtaining housing. In 
addition, no less than $100,000,000 of the funds made available 
under this heading are to be used to provide project-based 
assistance for the repair, rebuilding, and other needs of 
assisted housing damaged by Katrina and the other hurricanes of 
the 2005 season in the gulf. These funds will help expedite the 
preservation of the stock of low-income housing in the gulf. In 
addition, these funds may also be used to subsidize new tax 
credit projects where these projects are replacing destroyed or 
obsolete project-based housing or where low-income housing 
needs are greatest. The Committee directs HUD to report to the 
Committees on Appropriations every 6 months from the date of 
enactment on the use of project-based assistance under this 
account.
    The Committee understands that the impacted States have 
developed plans to address the needs of the most vulnerable 
citizens--namely, people with disabilities, the elderly, and 
the homeless. For example, one State has adopted a plan to 
create permanent supportive housing for people with special 
needs as part of its broader rental housing rebuilding 
strategies. Accordingly, the Committee urges the Department to 
work with the States in addressing the needs of the disabled, 
the elderly, and the homeless, and directs the Secretary to 
submit a report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations within 180 days after the date of enactment of 
this act on the States' efforts in addressing these needs.

                       COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FUND

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

2006 appropriation to date.............................. $14,532,000,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................   4,200,000,000
House allowance.........................................   4,200,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   5,200,000,000

    The Committee recommends $5,200,000,000 in CDBG funds for 
disaster relief, long-term recovery, and restoration of 
infrastructure in the most impacted and distressed areas 
related to the consequences of Katrina and the other hurricanes 
of 2005 in the Gulf of Mexico. The administration proposed 
$4,200,000,000 solely for Louisiana. Because other States still 
have significant disaster-related needs, the Committee has 
included $5,200,000,000. In particular, Mississippi still has 
significant needs that will not be adequately addressed through 
the earlier appropriation. No State may use more than 5 percent 
of amounts allocated for administrative costs directly 
associated with administering these funds.
    The Committee directs that no less than $1,000,000,000 of 
the amounts appropriated under this heading be used for repair, 
rehabilitation, and reconstruction (including demolition, site 
clearance, and remediation of the low-income affordable housing 
stock, including HUD-assisted housing and public housing). None 
of the impacted States have focused adequately on low-income 
housing and the needs of low-income families. The Committee 
also expects that any State receiving CDBG funds under this 
account will use no less than the pro-rata share of those funds 
for low-income housing.
    The Committee includes $12,000,000 for the HUD Office of 
the Inspector General to ensure the IG has adequate resources 
to address fraud and abuse as well as provide adequate 
accountability for the use of CDBG funds throughout this 
region.
    The Committee notes, that while the Department can waive 
the requirement that 50 percent of all funds be used to benefit 
low- and moderate-income persons, HUD has never waived this 
requirement and can do so only for a compelling need. The 
Committee considers this a substantial requirement and does not 
expect such a waiver as a practical matter. In addition, CDBG 
funds may only be released where a State submits a detailed 
plan on how the funds will be used to address long-term 
recovery and the restoration of infrastructure. HUD has the 
burden to ensure the plan gives priority to these needs as well 
as to the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the affordable 
rental housing stock, including public housing and HUD-assisted 
housing.
    The Committee believes that some may have unrealistic 
expectations of how CDBG funds can be used. For example, CDBG 
funds cannot generally be used for public safety and homeland 
security, uncompensated care and mental health services, the 
reimbursement of educational services, and social services and 
emergency services. These activities and needs are within the 
purview of other subcommittees and other programs. Any analysis 
of need should be balanced to include an assessment of any 
public benefit which may have accrued in certain areas because 
of a disaster such as the increased rental of housing units and 
increased employment.

House allowance.........................................      37,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      37,000,000

    The Committee recommends $37,000,000 to continue to support 
the short- and long-term repair and alterations of buildings 
damaged by the hurricanes of 2005, the same as the 
administration request. Federal buildings throughout the gulf 
coast received significant wind and water damage with estimated 
repair and alteration costs far in excess of GSA's ability to 
absorb these costs. These funds will pay for the clean up and 
repair work that is necessary to make these facilities safe and 
fully functional.

                   Commodity Credit Corporation Fund

               EMERGENCY AGRICULTURAL DISASTER ASSISTANCE

    The Committee recommends $3,944,000,000 for emergency 
agricultural disaster assistance. These funds will help farmers 
and ranchers in States affected by recent hurricanes, drought, 
flood, wildfire, and other natural disasters recover from 
resulting production losses. These funds will also assist in 
the removal of debris from watersheds in order to minimize the 
threat of flooding from future storm events. In addition, the 
funds will provide economic assistance to producers to 
compensate for high energy costs relating to agricultural 
production.

                                TITLE IV

                      DROUGHT EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE

            U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS DROUGHT ASSISTANCE

    Sec. 4001. The Committee recommendation includes $5,000,000

                BUREAU OF RECLAMATION DROUGHT ASSISTANCE

    Sec. 4002. The Committee recommendation includes $7,500,000 
for the Bureau of Reclamation to provide drought assistance.

                          EMERGENCY DESIGNATION

    Sec. 4003. The Committee recommendation includes an 
emergency designation for the funds in the title.

                                TITLE V

                       PORT SECURITY ENHANCEMENTS

                     CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION

                         Salaries and Expenses

    The Committee recommends an additional $266,050,000. Of 
this amount: $31,790,000 is to hire sufficient additional 
Supply Chain Security Specialists to triple the current number 
of specialists involved with conducting inspections and 
validations of Customs and Trade Partnership Against Terrorism 
participants; $211,000,000 is to purchase additional non-
intrusive inspection equipment for U.S. seaports and rail 
border crossings and to hire additional officers to operate the 
equipment and conduct additional cargo container inspections; 
and $23,260,000 is to hire an additional 50 Customs and Border 
Protection inspectors for deployment to overseas Container 
Security Initiative [CSI] ports and to double the number of CSI 
intelligence specialists in support of the CSI mission.

                       UNITED STATES COAST GUARD

                           Operating Expenses

    The Committee recommends an additional $23,000,000 to hire 
Coast Guard inspectors to validate security plans at domestic 
and foreign ports.

                    OFFICE FOR DOMESTIC PREPAREDNESS

                        State and Local Programs

    The Committee recommends an additional $227,000,000 for 
port security grants to address known risks.

                         SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

           Research, Development, Acquisition, and Operations

    The Committee recommends an additional $132,000,000 to 
accelerate completion of radiation portal monitor deployments 
at U.S. seaports in order to screen 100 percent of inbound 
containers.

                                TITLE VI

                              PANDEMIC FLU

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

                        Office of the Secretary

            PUBLIC HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICES EMERGENCY FUND

2006 appropriation to date..............................  $3,360,027,000
2006 supplemental estimate..............................................
House allowance.........................................................
Committee recommendation................................   2,300,000,000

    The Committee recommendation provides $2,300,000,000, to be 
available until expended, for the Department of Health and 
Human Services Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund 
to prepare for and respond to an influenza pandemic. The 
Committee notes that this appropriation will fulfill the second 
year's funding for pandemic influenza activities as originally 
requested by the administration. Appropriating these funds at 
this time enables long-term plans developed by the department 
and pharmaceutical manufacturers to be based on actual 
appropriations.
    The Committee recommendation includes bill language 
designating $300,000,000 for building State and Local Capacity; 
$50,000,000 for laboratory capacity and research at the Centers 
for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC]; and at least 
$200,000,000 for the CDC to carry out global and domestic 
disease surveillance, laboratory capacity and research, risk 
communication, laboratory diagnostics, rapid response and 
quarantine.
    The balance of the funds provided are available to support, 
at the Secretary's discretion, other core preparedness 
activities, such as expanding the domestic production capacity 
of influenza vaccine, developing and stockpiling pandemic 
vaccine, and stockpiling antivirals and other medical supplies 
necessary to protect and preserve lives in the event of an 
outbreak of pandemic influenza.
    The Committee directs the Secretary to provide on a semi-
annual basis to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees 
a report identifying the disbursements of funds received under 
this heading and a listing of the governments, companies and 
organizations that received funding. The report should include 
the amount and purpose of each grant or other form of 
assistance. Finally, the report should include the cumulative 
obligations by activity of the funds made available under this 
heading for pandemic preparedness, as well as any remaining 
unobligated balances.

                               TITLE VII

              GENERAL PROVISIONS AND TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS

                         AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS

provision deeming funds appropriated or made available by 
transfer in this Act for intelligence activities be authorized 
by Congress.

                 OFFICE OF ECOMONIC ADJUSTMENT--DEFENSE

    Sec. 7006. The Committee recommendation includes a 
provision making a technical correction to section 8044 of the 
Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006 regarding the 
Office of Economic Adjustment.

         INVESTIGATIONS, LOUISIANA HURRICANE STUDY COST SHARING

    Sec. 7007. The Committee has recommended a provision that 
states that the funds provided in division B, chapter 3, 
Investigations, of Public Law 109-148 are not subject to any 
non-Federal cost sharing requirement.

Tributaries, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, 
Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee, of Public Law 109-148.

                     MISSISSIPPI RIVER-GULF OUTLET

modifies a provision in division B, chapter 3, Operations and 
Maintenance, of Public Law, 109-148, concerning activities that 
can be undertaken along the Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet.

                            SHORE PROTECTION

    Sec. 7010. The Committee has included a provision to extend 
the duration through September 30, 2006 and increasing the cost 
limitation to $25,000,000 for section 227 of Public Law 104-303 
in order to allow funds appropriated in the fiscal year 2006 
Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act to be utilized 
for continuing projects.

        RECLAMATION STATES EMERGENCY DROUGHT RELIEF ACT OF 1991

    Sec. 7011. The Committee has included a provision extending 
the Drought Relief Act through 2010.

                         REPROGRAMMING OF FUNDS

    Sec. 7012. The Committee has included a provision 
clarifying the availability of funds for the purposes of 
reprogramming actions.

                       BONNEVILLE POWER AUTHORITY

    Sec. 7013. The Committee has included a provision that 
prohibits the use of any funds in fiscal year 2006 through 
April 1, 2007 to initiate a rate case.

                    DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

                    (INCLUDING RESCISSION OF FUNDS)

    Sec. 7014. The Committee recommends rescinding $3,960,000 
from the Office of Screening Coordination and Operations [SCO]. 
The Committee notes that 5 months into the fiscal year the SCO 
has not been established. Rather than establish another new 
office for departmental integration, the Committee recommends 
the funding for the SCO be made available to the Office of the 
Secretary and Executive Management for the Office of Policy. 
The Office of Policy was established to integrate polices 
across the Department and is capable of developing a unified 
strategy for screening, developing coordinated screening 
policies, overseeing screening programs, and establishing 
unified standards. The additional $3,960,000 recommended will 
allow the Office of Policy to carry out these functions or 
other priorities.

           DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR--U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY

    Sec. 7015. The Committee recommends $500,000 for the U.S. 
Geological Survey's Hydrologic Networks and Analysis Program to 
provide assistance with conducting assessments of critical 
reservoirs and dams on the Island of Kauai, Hawaii, including 
reservoir level instrumentation, post flood hydraulic 
assessments, and monitoring of dam structures using light 
detection imagery.

               SURFACE MINING CONTROL AND RECLAMATION ACT

    Sec. 7016. This section extends the authority of the 
Secretary of the Interior to collect fees pursuant to the 
Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act until September 30, 
2007.

                DEPARTMENT OF LABOR--OFFICE OF JOB CORPS

    Sec. 7017. The Committee recommends a general provision 
which prohibits the Department of Labor from carrying out 
Secretary's Order 09-2006. This Order, to establish the Office 
of Job Corps as an independent agency within the Department of 
Labor as mandated by Congress, instead fragments authority to 
other offices, contrary to the intent of the law. The Committee 
directs the Secretary to immediately transfer the Office of Job 
Corps intact, retaining all its staff, functions, and 
authorities.

                    DEPARTMENT OF LABOR--MINE SAFETY

    Sec. 7018. The Committee has included an additional 
$25,600,000 to supplement the inspection of coal mines. This 
funding is intended to hire additional FTE's to enforce the 
relevant provisions of the Mine Safety and Health Act and 
regulations pertaining to that act. The Committee does not 
intend for this funding to supplant current enforcement 
activities. While this money shall be available for 2 years to 
give the Mine Safety and Health Administration the time to hire 
and train additional personnel, it is expected that the Mine 
Safety Health Administration will rapidly hire and train 217 
additional FTEs for the coal mine inspection teams. The 
Committee recommendation includes bill language requiring the 
Secretary to submit progress reports on hiring to the Committee 
on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the 
Committee on Appropriations of the Senate on a quarterly basis, 
with the first report due June 15, 2006.

                CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL--MINE SAFETY

    Sec. 7019. The Committee has included an additional 
$10,000,000 for research to develop mine safety technology. In 
particular, the Committee directs that the funding be used for 
mine rescue chambers, emergency tracking, breathing and 
communication devices. The Committee is aware that significant 
advances have been made in the fields of communications, 
robotics, chemistry and other sciences that can be brought to 
bear on mine safety. For that reason, the Committee is eager 
that grants be made to institutions that routinely partner on 
these types of research with other Federal agencies such as the 
Department of Defense, the National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration, the Department of Homeland Security and the 
Department of Energy. The Committee recommendation includes 
bill language requiring the Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention to submit progress reports on grant-making and 
research findings to the Committee on Appropriations of the 
House of Representatives and the Committee on Appropriations of 
the Senate on a quarterly basis, with the first report due June 
15, 2006.

                   LOW INCOME HOME ENERGY ASSISTANCE

    The Committee recommendation strikes the general provision 
in the House bill amending section 9001 of the Deficit 
Reduction Act of 2005, allowing $750,000,000 in fiscal year 
2007 funds to be obligated in fiscal year 2006. Subsequent to 
House action, Public Law 109-204 provided $1,000,000,000 for 
this program, bringing the total available for fiscal year 2006 
to $3,161,170,000.

                       RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD

    Sec. 7020. The Committee recommendation includes a new 
general provision making a technical correction regarding the 
Dual Benefits Payments Account.

                  HEADSTART REGULATIONS EFFECTIVE DATE

    Sec. 7021. The Committee recommendation includes a new 
general provision extending the effective date for enforcement 
of Head Start transportation regulations.

                  CAPE CANAVERAL AIR STATION, FLORIDA

    The Committee agrees that of the funds made available in 
the Military Construction, Military Quality of Life, and 
Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act, 2006 (Public Law 109-114), 
the funds provided for the ``Satellite Processing Operations 
Support Facility'' at Cape Canaveral Air Station, Florida, may 
be used for the ``Satellite Alert Facility'' at Cape Canaveral 
Air Station.

                         MILITARY CONSTRUCTION

                             AUTHORIZATION

    Sec. 7022. The Committee recommendation includes a 
provision increasing authorization for a military construction 
project in Georgia.

                         MILITARY CONSTRUCTION

                             AUTHORIZATION

    Sec. 7023. The Committee recommendation includes a 
provision increasing authorization for a military construction 
project in Hawaii.

                         MILITARY CONSTRUCTION

                             AUTHORIZATION

    Sec. 7024. The Committee recommendation includes a 
provision authorizing the purchase of land in North Carolina.

                        DETAIL AUTHORITY FOR DOT

    Sec. 7025. The Committee includes a provision that permits 
the Department of Transportation's Office of Intelligence, 
Security, and Emergency Response to assess and enter into 
certain reimbursable agreements with the modal administrations 
for services necessary to carry out emergency preparedness or 
emergency response activities The provision also authorizes the 
Secretary of Transportation to detail modal administration 
employees to the Office of Intelligence, Security, and 
Emergency Response without reimbursement and for fixed periods 
of time as necessary to carry out emergency preparedness or 
emergency response activities with reports to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on these details.

                        EMERGENCY HIGHWAY FUNDS

    Sec. 7026. The Committee includes a provision that replaces 
the funding cap for the repair and reconstruction of the I-10 
bridge spanning New Orleans and Slidell, Louisiana from 
$629,000,000 to $803,000,000.

              LIMITATION ON CERTAIN TRANSPORTATION ACTIONS

    Sec. 7027. While the Committee has not specifically 
addressed the issue of foreign control of U.S. airlines as 
proposed by the Department of Transportation, the Committee 
believes that the U.S. aviation industry is part of our 
critical infrastructure as are the ports. For this reason, it 
is critical that any final rule regarding foreign control of 
U.S. airlines not only comply with current laws regarding 
foreign ownership, but also comply with statutes recently 
passed by the Congress which require that all U.S. airlines be 
under the ``actual control'' of U.S. citizens. Therefore, the 
Committee directs the Secretary of Transportation to refrain 
from issuing a final rule for 120 days. The Committee is 
seriously concerned about the promulgation of any rule which 
would allow any minority foreign investor to exercise control 
or decision making authority over any aspect of a U.S. carrier 
operation.

          DOJ AND TREASURY FUNDING FOR INTELLIGENCE ACTIVITIES

    Sec. 7028. The Committee includes a provision authorizing 
the use of funds appropriated for intelligence activities for 
the Departments of Justice and Treasury during fiscal year 2006 
until the enactment of the Intelligence Authorization Act for 
fiscal year 2006.

                      FUNDING FOR TREASURY TRAVEL

    Sec. 7029. The Committee has included a technical 
correction to Public Law 109-115 related to travel for the 
Department of the Treasury's Office of Terrorism and Financial 
Intelligence and the Office of International Affairs.

              ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES CORRECTIONS

    Sec. 7030. The Committee includes a provision that makes a 
number of technical corrections to EDI grants.

                        GSA TRANSFER OF PROPERTY

    Sec. 7031. The Committee includes a provision that 
transfers certain lots of real property to the City of Crosby, 
North Dakota from GSA. This property was determined to be no 
longer needed for a Homeland Security purpose and will be 
reconveyed to the original owner upon enactment of this 
legislation.

  COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 17, RULE XVI OF THE STANDING RULES OF THE 
                                 SENATE
