                     GENERAL STATEMENT AND SUMMARY

    The Committee recommends new budget (obligational) 
authority of $3,980,000,000 for the legislative branch for 
fiscal year 2007. This total is $258,457,000 below the budget 
request and $187,002,000 above the fiscal year 2006 level.
    The bill includes $272,405,000 for the U.S. Capitol Police; 
$435,041,000 for the Architect of the Capitol to maintain, 
improve, and construct buildings and facilities for the 
Congress; $498,620,000 for the Government Accountability 
Office; $575,647,000 for the Library of Congress; $140,280,000 
for the Government Printing Office; and $840,684,000 for 
operations of the Senate.
    The Committee expects all agencies to notify the Committee 
of any significant departures from budget plans presented to 
the Committee in any agency's budget justifications. In 
particular, agencies funded through this bill are required to 
notify the Committee prior to each reprogramming of funds in 
excess of the lesser of 10 percent or $500,000 between 
programs, projects or activities, or in excess of $500,000 
between object classifications (except for shifts within the 
pay categories, object class 11, 12, and 13 or as further 
specified in each agency's respective section). This includes 
cumulative reprogrammings that together total at least $500,000 
from or to a particular program, activity, or object 
classification as well as reprogramming of FTE's or funds to 
create new organizational entities within the Agency or to 
restructure entities which already exist. The Committee desires 
to be notified of reprogramming actions which involve less than 
the above-mentioned amounts if such actions would have the 
effect of changing an agency's funding requirements in future 
years or if programs or projects specifically cited in the 
Committee's reports are affected.
    The Committee also expects all agencies to submit operating 
plans for the Committee's approval within 30 days of the bill's 
enactment.
    Legislative Branch Inspectors General.--The establishment 
under this bill of an office of inspector general for the 
Office of the Architect of the Capitol helps to enhance 
governmental efforts to promote integrity and efficiency and to 
detect and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse in the Architect of 
the Capitol's programs and activities. A majority of the 
legislative branch entities have either a statutory or 
administrative inspector general to conduct and supervise 
audits and investigations relating to the programs and 
operations of their entity. The Committee recognizes the 
benefits of coordination and formal communication between and 
among the executive branch inspectors general achieved through 
the structure and activities of the President's Council on 
Integrity and Efficiency and the Executive Council on Integrity 
and Efficiency. To achieve similar benefits within the 
legislative branch, the Committee expects the legislative 
branch inspectors general to communicate, cooperate, and 
coordinate with each other on an informal basis regarding their 
respective audit, inspection, and investigative activities, as 
appropriate. The Committee requests that the inspectors general 
keep the Committee informed of the progress of such 
communications, cooperation, and coordination.
    Budget Justifications.--The Committee directs all agencies 
in the preparation of their budget justifications beginning in 
fiscal year 2008, to display clearly policies and assumptions 
for the development of their requests for programs, projects 
and activities.
    Statutory Positions.--The Committee notes there are a 
number of statutory positions in the Senate and the legislative 
branch support agencies that either have no specific statutory 
responsibilities or have statutory responsibilities that have 
become anachronistic, or should be adjusted to reflect changes 
which have occurred since the positions were created. With the 
assistance of the Government Accountability Office, the 
Committee intends to undertake a review of these positions and 
propose next year the abolition of statutory positions which 
lack justification. A similar action was taken in 1981 when a 
number of specific statutory positions were abolished and 
replaced with lump sum allowances for various offices in the 
Senate.

                                TITLE I

                   LEGISLATIVE BRANCH APPROPRIATIONS

                                 SENATE

Budget estimate, 2007...................................         195,000
House allowance.........................................  Not considered
Committee recommendation................................         195,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $195,000 for 
the expense allowances of the Vice President, the President pro 
tempore of the Senate, the President pro tempore emeritus of 
the Senate, the majority and minority leaders, the majority and 
minority whips, the chairmen of the majority and minority 
conference committees, and the chairmen of the majority and 
minority policy committees. The recommended allowances are as 
follows:
    For the expense allowance of the Vice President, the

    For the expense allowance of the President pro tempore, the 
Committee recommends an amount of $40,000.
    For the expense allowance of the majority and minority 
leaders, the Committee recommends $40,000 for each leader, for 
a total of $80,000.
    For the expense allowance of the majority and minority 
whips, the Committee recommends $10,000 for each whip, for a 
total of $20,000.
    For the expense allowance of the President pro tempore 
emeritus, the Committee recommends $15,000.
    For the expense allowance for the chairmen of the majority 
and minority conference committees, the Committee recommends 
$5,000 for each chairman, for a total of $10,000.
    For the expense allowance for the chairmen of the majority 
and minority policy committees, the Committee recommends $5,000 
for each chairman, for a total of $10,000.
    Expenditures from all the foregoing allowances are made 
upon certification from the individuals for whom the allowances

    Representation Allowances for the Majority and Minority Leaders

Committee recommendation................................          30,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $30,000 for 
representation allowances for the majority and minority 
leaders.
    This allowance was established in the Supplemental 
Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1985 (Public Law 99-88). The 
funds were authorized to be used by the majority and minority 
leaders solely for the discharge of their appropriate 
responsibilities in connection with official visits to the 
United States by members of foreign legislative bodies and 
representatives of foreign governments and intergovernmental 
agencies. The recommended amount is to be divided equally 
between the two leaders.
    Expenditures from this allowance are made upon 
certification of the leaders and are reported in the semiannual 
report of the Secretary of the Senate.

                    Salaries, Officers and Employees

Appropriations, 2006....................................    $147,120,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $157,889,000 
for the subaccounts funded under the overall account for the 
salaries of officers and employees of the Senate.
    It should be noted that except for a handful of positions 
in the Offices of the Secretary and the Sergeant at Arms that 
are required by statute, specific staffing levels are not 
stipulated either by the budget request or by the Committee's 
recommendation. Rather, lump-sum allowances are provided to 
fund staffing levels each office finds necessary and 
appropriate for the performance of its duties. Estimated 
staffing levels for offices funded under this appropriation for 
fiscal year 2007 are approximately 1,400 positions.

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $56,700,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      62,604,000
House allowance.........................................  Not considered
Committee recommendation................................      59,500,000

    This appropriation provides funds for the salaries of three

Sergeant at Arms and Doorkeeper, and Administrative Assistant

    Contractual Legal and Administrative Services and

Secretary of the Senate to appoint and fix the compensation of 
a superintendent and other positions for the Office of Public 
Records. In addition, under the authority of Public Law 95-521, 
October 26, 1978 (Ethics in Government Act) reports filed under

        SENATORS' OFFICIAL PERSONNEL AND OFFICE EXPENSE ACCOUNT

Appropriations, 2006....................................    $342,056,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     387,522,000
House allowance.........................................  Not considered
Committee recommendation................................     374,031,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation for fiscal year 
2007 of $374,031,000 for the Senators' Official Personnel and 
Office Expense Account, an increase of $31,975,000 above the 
current year and a decrease of $13,491,000 below the request.
    This account funds salaries and benefits of Senators' 
staffs as well as the office expense allowance for Senators' 
offices. The Senators' official personnel and office expense 
allowance [SOPOEA] is comprised of three components. Two of 
these are for salaries of personnel in Senators' offices.
    The allowance for administrative and clerical assistance is 
based on the population of States, beginning with States with a 
population of fewer than 5 million people to States with a 
population of 28 million or more. The table illustrates the 
allowances per population category and the States which fall 
into those categories. The estimate for fiscal year 2007 totals 
$219,796,942.
    The second component of the salaries allowance is for 
legislative assistance to Senators, as authorized by Public Law 
95-94. This allowance provides funding for three positions in 
each Senator's office at an annual rate of $160,659 for a total 
of $481,977 per office, or $48,197,700 for all 100 Senators.
    The third component of the SOPOEA account is for office 
expenses and totals $20,328,942. Each Senator's office is 
allocated an amount for office expenses, as displayed in the 
following table. In addition, an amount of $200,000 is provided 
to cover additional expenses that may be incurred in the event 
of the death or resignation of a Senator, and to provide for 
transitional expenses during election years subject to 
regulations set by the Committee on Rules and Administration 
with respect to official mail.
    It should be noted that the amounts provided for the 
various components of the SOPOEA are interchangeable. Amounts 
provided for salaries may be used for expenses, and vice versa, 
subject to regulations set by the Committee on Rules and 
Administration with respect to official mail. It should also be 
noted that the figures in the following table are preliminary, 
and that official notification of member budgets is issued by 
the Financial Clerk of the Senate after enactment of this bill.
    The following table illustrates the several components of 
the SOPOEA.

4,298 individuals employed in Senators' offices throughout the 
United States and covered by this appropriation.
    In addition to providing funds for compensation of 
employees within Senators' offices, this appropriation also 
provides for agency contributions for those employees; that is, 
the Senate's share, as an employer, of the various employee 
benefit programs for which Senate employees are eligible. These 
payments are mandatory, and fluctuate according to the programs 
in which employees are enrolled, the level of compensation, and 
the degree of participation. Budget requests for this account 
prepared by the Financial Clerk must be based on both 
experience and evaluation of trends. The fiscal year 2007 
request for this account anticipates $92,485,000 in agency 
contribution costs.
    The amount recommended by the Committee for the SOPOEA is 
less than would be required to cover all obligations that could 
be incurred under the authorized allowances for all Senators. 
The Committee is able to recommend an appropriation of a lesser 
amount than potentially necessary because Senators typically do 
not obligate funds up to the absolute ceiling of their 
respective allowances.

Majority and the Conference of the Minority. This provision 
authorizes the Secretary of the Conference of the Majority or 
the Secretary of the Conference of the Minority to transfer 
money from their SOE account to the Miscellaneous Items account 
in the Senate contingent fund in order to pay appropriate 
office expenses. This authority is already available to other 
Senate leadership offices.
    Sec. 5. Authority to Acquire Real Property. This provision 
authorizes the Sergeant at Arms to acquire property to support 
the operations of the Senate, subject to the approval of the 
Committee on Rules and Administration and the Committee on 
Appropriations, and to transfer funds to the ``Senate office 
buildings'' account under the Architect of the Capitol for the 
acquisition or maintenance of such property, subject to the 
approval of the Appropriations Committee.

                              JOINT ITEMS


                        Joint Economic Committee

Appropriations, 2006....................................      $4,276,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................       4,406,000
House allowance.........................................       4,370,000
Committee recommendation................................       4,406,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $4,406,000 for 
the Joint Economic Committee [JEC]. This is an increase of 
$130,000 over the enacted level owing to anticipated cost-of-
living increases. The Joint Economic Committee [JEC] was 
created by the Employment Act of 1946. The primary tasks of the 
JEC are to review economic conditions and to recommend 
improvements in economic policy. The JEC performs research and 
economic analysis, and monitors and analyzes current economic, 
financial, and employment condition.

                      Joint Committee on Taxation

Appropriations, 2006....................................      $8,693,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................       9,105,000
House allowance.........................................       9,082,000
Committee recommendation................................       9,105,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $9,105,000 for 
salaries and expenses of the Joint Committee on Taxation. This 
is an increase of $412,000 over the enacted level primarily to 
accommodate cost-of-living increases.
    The Joint Committee is established under the Internal 
Revenue Code of 1986 to: (1) investigate the operation and 
effects of internal revenue taxes and the administration of 
such taxes; (2) investigate measures and methods for the 
simplification of such taxes; (3) make reports to the House 
Committee on Ways and Means and the Senate Committee on Finance 
(or to the House and the Senate) on the results of such 
investigations and studies and to make recommendations; and (4) 
review any proposed refund or credit of income or estate and 
gift taxes or certain other taxes set forth in Code section 
6405 in excess of $2,000,000. In addition to these functions 
that are specified in the Internal Revenue Code, the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974 requires the Joint Committee 
to provide revenue estimates for all tax legislation considered 
by either the House or the Senate.

                   Office of the Attending Physician

Appropriations, 2006....................................      $2,520,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................       2,652,000
House allowance.........................................       2,652,000
Committee recommendation................................       2,652,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $2,652,000 for 
the Office of the Attending Physician. The Office was first 
established by House Resolution 253, adopted December 5, 1928.

               Capitol Guide and Special Services Office

Appropriations, 2006....................................      $4,098,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................       8,489,000
House allowance.........................................       8,490,000
Committee recommendation................................       8,489,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $8,489,000, 
for the Capitol Guide and Special Services Office, the same as 
the budget request. The increase accomodates additional 
staffing requirements associated with the operation of the 
Capitol Visitor Center. The Committee notes that staffing 
requirements may exceed original estimates owing to a number of 
unresolved or developing CVC operational issues. The Committee 
expects to be apprised of staffing needs as operational 
decisions are made.

                      Statements of Appropriations

Appropriations, 2006....................................         $30,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................          30,000
House allowance.........................................          30,000
Committee recommendation................................          30,000

    The Committee recommends $30,000 for the preparation of 
detailed statements of appropriations as required by law. This 
account is used as payment for the preparation of the volumes, 
``Statements on Appropriations,'' for the second session of the 
109th Congress. These volumes show annual appropriations made, 
indefinite appropriations, and contracts authorized, along with 
a chronological history of regular appropriations bills. The 
volumes are compiled jointly by the Senate and House Committees 
on Appropriations pursuant to a directive in the Legislative 
Appropriations Act of June 7, 1924.

                    --------------------------------------------------------
                    ____________________________________________________
      Total, Capitol Police.............................     272,405,000

    The Committee recommends $272,405,000 for the U.S. Capitol 
Police. This is an increase of $25,444,000 over fiscal year 
2006 and a decrease of $22,678,000 below the request, 
reflecting more accurate projections of requirements and better 
management of additional duty hours. The budget may be 
supplemented by a reprogramming of $3,000,000 in unobligated 
prior-year balances, subject to the customary approval process, 
should additional funds be necessary.
    USCP Financial Management.--While progress has been made 
over the last several years, the Committee remains concerned 
about USCP management's strategy and slow response in resolving 
long-standing payroll issues, most notably those identified by 
external independent auditors as material weaknesses in 
internal control. These material weaknesses, which were 
identified in 1999 and continue to be unresolved through the 
issuance of the most recently completed financial statement 
audit report covering fiscal year 2003, center around Capitol 
Police not having fully implemented policies and procedures to 
provide reasonable assurance that payroll transactions are 
properly approved and certified, as well as the Capitol 
Police's lack of supporting documentation maintained in their 
payroll records. In addition, the Capitol Police has never 
completed a full scope audit of a full set of financial 
statements. Therefore, the Committee directs the Chief of the 
Capitol Police to report to the Committee in 60 days on the 
status of its fiscal year 2004 and 2005 financial statement 
audits, including the status, corrective actions planned, and 
resolution dates for the previous, as well as any new, internal 
control weaknesses identified by the independent auditor. The 
Committee expects the Capitol Police to implement expeditiously 
the corrective actions needed, and resolve payroll and other 
identified weaknesses. The Committee also directs the Capitol 
Police to prepare a plan to move to a full-scope financial 
statement audit for fiscal year 2007, with the audit report 
being issued no later than December 15, 2007.
    Advance Notification of Deployments Outside Jurisdiction.--
The Committee directs USCP to provide advance notification of 
deployments of officers outside USCP jurisdiction to the 
Committees on Appropriations in a timely manner. On several 
occasions in the last year the Committee received notification 
after the deployment had occurred.

                                SALARIES

Appropriations, 2006....................................    $215,281,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     246,700,000
House allowance.........................................     220,600,000
Committee recommendation................................     231,205,000

    The Committee recommendation totals $231,205,000 for 
salaries, an increase of $15,924,000 over the enacted level and 
a decrease of $15,495,000 below the request. This level will 
support current sworn staffing of 1,658 officers, 21 additional 
officers required for the Capitol Visitor Center, as well as 82 
officers to be transferred from the Library of Congress Police 
and 10 associated with LOC police attrition. In addition, the 
recommendation would support 417 civilian staff.
    The amount provided covers salaries, benefits, and overtime 
costs. Capitol Police personnel are also eligible for hazardous 
duty pay and comparability pay similar to locality pay 
adjustments granted other Federal law enforcement personnel in 
the Washington, DC, area.
    Overtime.--The Committee notes that the amount recommended 
includes an estimated $17,000,000 for overtime (excluding 
amounts associated with the merger of Library of Congress 
police). This will provide for some 356,000 hours of overtime, 
a reduction of 24,000 hours from that estimated for fiscal year 
2006. The Committee commends the agency for its efforts to 
better manage additional duty hours and expects such efforts 
will continue in fiscal year 2007, without any degradation to 
security.
    The Committee is aware that USCP is developing a directive 
that defines the process for planning and approving additional 
duty hours and clarifies roles and responsibilities for various 
USCP staff involved in this process. The Committee expects USCP 
to finalize and implement this order by September 1, 2006, 
which will institutionalize this process and support ongoing 
efforts to improve the management of additional duty hours. 
Additionally, this process could be supported by implementing a 
risk-based framework that would assess the risks associated 
with protecting the Capitol complex and link them to the 
allocation of USCP's resources. As such, the Committee directs 
USCP to develop and implement by December 31, 2006, a risk-
based framework designed to assist USCP management in 
efficiently and effectively deploying resources for the 
protection of the campus, including an external peer review by 
independent and qualified experts. This external peer review 
can improve the technical quality of the framework and the 
credibility of its decisionmaking process. Additionally, this 
framework should be tested and validated periodically to ensure 
its continued effectiveness. The Committee expects to be 
promptly informed in the event of any delays or other issues 
that may impede the successful and timely completion of the 
implementation of the directive and the risk-based framework.
    Library of Congress Police Staffing.--The Committee's 
recommendation also includes approximately $4,700,000 for 
salaries of Library of Congress Police to be transferred from 
LOC, and $1,765,000 for overtime to cover LOC posts during 
training of the officers to be transferred from LOC.

                            general expenses

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $31,680,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      48,383,000
House allowance.........................................      38,500,000
Committee recommendation................................      41,200,000

    The Committee recommends $41,200,000 for general expenses 
of the Capitol Police, an increase of $9,520,000 over fiscal 
year 2006 and a reduction of $7,183,000 below the request 
reflecting revised estimation based on prioritizing mission 
support requirements.
    Approximately $2,100,000 is included for expenses 
associated with the transfer of LOC police to USCP, including 
training, outfitting, and studies to ensure compatibility of 
security and information systems.
    Expenses include office supplies and equipment, laundry and 
dry-cleaning, communications, motor vehicles, uniforms and 
equipment, investigations, training, and miscellaneous items.

                       Administrative Provisions

    Sec. 1001. Transfer Authority. The Committee has included a 
routine provision which allows for funds to be transferred 
between the ``Salaries'' and ``General expenses'' accounts.
    Sec. 1002. Transfer of Library of Congress Police. Language 
is included that effectuates the merger of the Capitol Police 
with the Library of Congress [LOC] Police mandated by the 2003 
Legislative Branch Appropriations Act (Public Law 108-7). Under 
this language, LOC Police Officers shall be transferred to the 
United States Capitol Police, provided such LOC Police Officers 
(1) will reach 20 years of combined Federal service on or 
before the age of 60 and (2) successfully complete a background 
check, polygraph test, medical examination, and prescribed 
training course. The transfer shall take place on April 1, 
2007. A waiver of the USCP mandatory retirement age of 57 shall 
be granted to the transfer-eligible officers who will not reach 
20 years of combined Federal service by the age of 57. The 
waiver shall remain in effect only until the 20-year combined 
Federal service threshold for immediate retirement is met.
    Effective on September 30, 2008, all LOC Police employee 
positions shall be terminated. No later than this date, LOC 
Police Officers not eligible to transfer to the USCP but 
eligible for immediate retirement shall be separated from 
service, and LOC Police Officers not eligible to either 
transfer to the USCP or immediately retire shall be transferred 
to another position at the LOC or separated from service.
    Effective on October 1, 2008, the USCP shall assume 
policing responsibilities with respect to the LOC, while the 
Librarian of Congress shall retain control over collections 
security within the LOC. The LOC and the USCP shall enter into 
a memorandum of understanding spelling out the collections 
security activities to be performed by the LOC and describing 
how the LOC employees responsible for collections security will 
interact and coordinate with the USCP.
    The LOC shall provide administrative support (i.e., 
lockers, office space, and parking) to USCP Officers posted at 
the LOC to the same extent such support was provided to LOC 
Police Officers prior to the transfer.
    Sec. 1003. Authorization for Advance Payments. The 
Committee recommends limited advance payment authority for 
certain contracts when such payments would be more prompt, 
efficient, or economical.
    Sec. 1004. USCP General Counsel. This provision transfers 
the position of General Counsel to the Capitol Police. With the 
exception of this position, all other sworn and civilian USCP 
positions, including those reporting directly to the Capitol 
Police Board, are on the USCP payroll and have been since the 
USCP payroll migrated from the Senate or House payrolls.

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $3,418,000 for 
the salaries and expenses of the Office of Compliance [OOC], an 
increase of $337,000 over fiscal year 2006. The Committee 
expects OOC to work with the Architect of the Capitol to 
address Capitol complex utility tunnel issues as expeditiously 
as possible to ensure protection of worker health and safety.

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $36,987,000 
for the Congressional Budget Office. The amount recommended 
represents an increase of $1,891,000 over the enacted level to 
cover anticipated pay and price level increases for the current 
staffing level of 235 FTE's.

                        ARCHITECT OF THE CAPITOL

    The Committee has recommended a funding level of 
$435,041,000 for all activities of the Architect of the 
Capitol. The amount recommended is $153,308,000 below the 
request and $16,752,000 below the fiscal year 2006 level. The 
Committee has funded projects designated with an immediate 
urgency. Other requested projects, unless related to life 
safety, are not funded owing to budget constraints and the need 
for AOC to focus on the successful completion of ongoing 
projects.
    The following table shows the request and the Committee 
recommendation, excluding the House Office Buildings account:

\1\Including rescission and supplemental appropriations (Public Law 109-234).

    Line-Item Construction Program.--The Committee supports 
AOC's efforts to develop a systematic method for prioritizing 
construction projects, yet considers the line-item construction 
program [LICP] to be a ``work in progress'' with the need for 
more strategic ways for comparing projects and assessing their 
relative merits. In addition, the Committee directs AOC to 
include all construction projects estimated to cost a minimum 
of $250,000 as part of the LICP beginning with the fiscal year 
2008 budget process such that the Committees on Appropriations 
may make funding decisions on all construction projects in a 
more comprehensive manner.
    Project Management Costs.--The Committee is concerned that 
the Architect does not have a systematic and transparent 
process to estimate and fully account for actual project costs. 
Without such a process, the Architect cannot determine the 
accuracy of its estimates nor demonstrate that funding for 
management, administrative, and overhead costs, which are 
derived from project estimates, is appropriate or 
representative of actual costs. AOC has recently completed an 
internal review of the Construction Division, and made 
recommendations for improving the performance of the 
Construction Division, yet a comprehensive review of project 
management costs has not been undertaken. Therefore, the 
Committee directs the Architect to undertake a study of its 
estimating and cost accounting practices for the Project 
Management Division and Construction Division, including a 
comparison of these practices to standard construction 
management practices, and develop a process that more 
accurately relates estimates to actual costs and provides a 
basis to manage costs more effectively. The Architect should 
report its results to the Committee by January 31, 2007. In 
addition, the Committee directs the AOC to provide a status 
report by January 31, 2007, on its efforts to implement 
recommendations from the Construction Division Peer Review 
Report.
    Cap on Project-Related Temporary Staff.--In lieu of 
allocating construction division [CD] temporary staff and 
project-related temporary staff by jurisdiction, the Committee 
recommends an agency-wide cap of 210 CD temporary staff for 
fiscal year 2007 and 95 project-related temporary staff, and 
directs the agency to report on its plans for allocating these 
staff. This flexibility is intended to ensure the AOC employs 
the most cost-effective method for executing projects. The 
Committee expects AOC in the fiscal year 2008 budget to address 
inconsistencies in permanent versus temporary positions in the 
Project Management Division.
    Biobased Products.--The Committee encourages the Architect 
of the Capitol to initiate a pilot program to make available 
biobased cutlery, cups, plates and other items as available in 
the Senate food service areas.

Committee recommendation................................      90,669,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $90,669,000 
for general administration, a reduction of $12,805,000 below 
the request and an increase of $14,625,000 above the fiscal 
year 2006 level. This will accommodate an FTE level of 367, 
including 2 new FTE's for the Office of the Inspector General, 
2 new nurses for the CVC under the Office of the Attending 
Physician, 1 new cost accountant, and 6 temporary employees 
performing routine operations to be converted to permanent 
FTE's.
    The General Administration appropriation provides funding 
for salaries and related benefits of the Architect, officers, 
administrative and support staff, including engineering and 
architecture employees. This account also provides for 
administrative items such as agency-wide contractual services; 
surveys and studies; information technology; and safety 
engineering operations.

    Utility Tunnels.--On February 28, 2006, the Office of 
Compliance [OOC] issued a ``complaint'' to the Architect of the 
Capitol regarding the safety and health violations that exist 
in the Capitol complex utility tunnels, including structural 
problems, inadequate means of communication and egress, and 
asbestos. This is the first time OOC has filed a complaint 
under the Occupational Safety and Health Act. The Committee is 
very troubled that the conditions of the tunnel were largely 
unaddressed since OOC first issued a citation in 2000. The 
Committee is deeply concerned about the Architect's stewardship 
of the steam tunnels by its failure to plan, budget for, and 
address the continuous maintenance of the tunnels in a timely 
manner. The Committee directs that by August 31, 2006, the 
Architect provide to the Committee a comprehensive plan and 
budget that strategically address short- and long-term repairs 
to the steam tunnels over the next 5 years. The plan should 
include, at a minimum, an assessment of the tunnel problems 
that need to be corrected, the priorities from safety and 
operational standpoints, options for addressing the problems 
along with the costs and benefits and advantages and 
disadvantages of each option, the recommended options and 
schedule for implementation, and the identification of 
officials who will be accountable. The Committee also directs 
the Architect to provide quarterly reports to the Committee on 
progress it makes in (1) implementing its strategic plan for 
making tunnel repairs, (2) identifying and fixing management 
problems that allowed the tunnel problems to go unaddressed for 
more than 6 years to prevent such a situation from reoccurring, 
and (3) steps being taken--and their effectiveness--to enhance 
the safety of workers who must go into the tunnels.
    The Committee has provided a minor construction budget of 
$4,000,000 to provide flexibility in addressing utility tunnel 
requirements, subject to the customary reprogramming 
guidelines.
    Capitol Power Plant Staffing and Organizational 
Structure.--The Government Accountability Office recently 
reported on staffing and training challenges faced by the 
Architect in preparation for startup of the expanded West 
Refrigeration Plant at the Capitol Power Plant. With the 
imminent completion of the West Refrigeration Plant expansion 
and related Capitol Power Plant modernization project, the 
Committee is concerned about the Architect's ability to operate 
the plant safely, efficiently, and economically. In light of 
concerns raised in GAO's report that the Capitol Power Plant is 
overstaffed and that current operators may not be capable of 
operating the modernized plant equipment, the Committee directs 
the Architect to develop a staffing plan that achieves the most 
cost-efficient organizational structure. The Architect shall 
provide the Committee within 90 days a detailed implementation 
plan that outlines the new Capitol Power Plant organizational 
structure and its schedule for achieving the reorganization.

Committee recommendation................................      37,959,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $37,959,000 
and 156 permanent FTE's for the care and maintenance of the 
Library buildings and grounds by the Architect of the Capitol, 
of which $14,361,000 shall remain available until September 30, 
2011. The FTE cap includes the transfer of 23 temporary FTE's 
to permanent status, as these staff are performing routine 
operational functions. The recommendation is $30,116,000 below 
the enacted amount for fiscal year 2006 and $64,278,000 below 
the request. Reductions from the request are primarily 
associated with the Logistics Center and the elimination of 
lower priority projects.

    The Committee recommends $9,240,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the Botanic Garden, and an FTE ceiling of 69 
including 7 for the National Garden. This is $24,000 below the 
request level and $1,683,000 above the enacted level.
    The amount recommended includes $1,210,000 for the 
restoration of Bartholdi Foundation, a project which has been 
delayed since fiscal year 2000. This project is urgently needed 
in view of the increased deterioration resulting from rust and 
corrosion on both the interior and the exterior of the 
fountain.

                    ____________________________________________________
      Total.............................................      39,550,000

    The Committee recommends $39,550,000 for the Capitol 
Visitor Center, including $25,600,000 for completion of the 
Capitol Visitor Center, $4,534,000 for project fit-out costs, 
and $9,416,000 for CVC operations.
    According to the Government Accountability Office, the 
amount requested by the Architect is unlikely to be sufficient 
to complete the CVC. Therefore, the Committee has added 
$5,000,000 to the budget based on GAO's recommendation. In 
addition, the opening is likely to be delayed well beyond the 
timeframe on which the budget estimate for operations was 
predicated. Therefore, the Committee has reduced the budget 
request for operations to $9,416,000.
    The Capitol Visitor Center was established to improve 
security for all persons working in or visiting the U.S. 
Capitol and enhance the educational experience of visitors.

                        Administrative Provision

    Sec. 1201. Inspector General. The Committee recommends a 
provision creating a statutory inspector general for the 
Architect of the Capitol. This is intended to promote integrity 
and efficiency in AOC programs, and detect and prevent fraud, 
waste, and abuse.

                          LIBRARY OF CONGRESS

    The Committee recommends a total of $575,647,000 for the 
Library of Congress, an increase of $13,896,000 over the fiscal 
year 2006 level and a decrease of $12,484,000 below the 
request. The reduction below the request is in part attributed 
to the transfer of funds to the USCP to effectuate the merger 
of LOC with Capitol Police. Increases are provided to 
accommodate pay and price level increases, as well as to 
increase programs in selected areas such as acquisitions. In 
addition to the appropriation, the Library estimates receipts 
and reimbursements of $40,325,000, funds from gifts and trusts 
totaling $10,375,000, and revolving funds totaling $82,430,000. 
Total funds available to support Library operations, including 
the Architect of the Capitol account, are expected to be nearly 
$750,000,000 in fiscal year 2007 under the Committee 
recommendation.
    To reiterate the language of the 2006 Senate Report, the 
Committee directs the Library in consultation with GAO to 
develop a budget presentation and justification package for the 
fiscal year 2007 budget cycle that clearly addresses rates and 
assumptions used in the base as well as a clear description for 
each program of what drives demand for the program, what the 
nature of the program's workload is, and what service or 
outcome each base program is intended to produce. A clear 
description of new program starts and a detailed break out of 
rates and assumptions associated with cost estimates for those 
programs including demand, workload, and outcome should also be 
provided along with a clear explanation of how each program 
relates to goals and objectives set forth in the Library's 
strategic plan.
    The following table displays the Committee recommendation 
for the Library of Congress appropriations compared to the 
budget request and the fiscal year 2006 level.

      Net, salaries and expenses........................     397,756,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $391,406,000 
for salaries and expenses of the Library of Congress and 
approves authority to spend receipts of $6,350,000 in fiscal 
year 2006, for a total of $397,756,000. This is $11,538,000 
below the request and $5,960,000 above the enacted level.
    The Committee's recommendation reflects revised estimates 
for payroll and rental costs; an increase of $1,000,000 above 
the current level for acquisition of Library Collections 
(GENPAC); $273,000 for the workforce transformation project; 
and a decrease of $4,182,000 below the request owing to the 
transfer of 82 LOC police to the U.S. Capitol Police. In 
addition, $250,000 is recommended for the final year of the 
Middle Eastern Text Initiative, and $700,000 is included for 
the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
    The Committee urges the Library to engage in community 
outreach in the use of the St. Cecelia's Center.

    The Committee recommends the direct appropriation of 
$25,069,000 for the Copyright Office and approves authority to 
spend receipts of $33,975,000 in fiscal year 2007, for a total 
of $59,044,000. This is $136,000 below the request level, 
reflecting revised estimates for the cost-of-living adjustment.
    The Committee's recommendation includes $1,000,000 to 
digitally image pre-1978 public records. This 6-year initiative 
should be clearly displayed in subsequent budget requests 
rather than becoming part of the ``base.''

                     Congressional Research Service


                         salaries and expenses

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $99,907,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     104,279,000
House allowance.........................................     102,462,000
Committee recommendation................................     103,625,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $103,625,000 
for the Congressional Research Service. The amount recommended 
is an increase of $3,718,000 over the fiscal year 2006 level 
and is sufficient to cover pay and inflationary increases.

             Books for the Blind and Physically Handicapped


                         salaries and expenses

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $53,905,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      55,703,000
House allowance.........................................      53,974,000
Committee recommendation................................      55,547,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $55,547,000 
for salaries and expenses for Books for the Blind and 
Physically Handicapped. This is an increase of $1,642,000 over 
the fiscal year 2006 level. The Committee recommends $400,000 
for the National Federation of the Blind ``newsline'' program, 
the same as the fiscal year 2006 level.
    This appropriation supports a National Reading Program for 
blind and physically handicapped citizens. Books and magazines 
in braille and various recorded formats are produced by the 
National Library Services for the Blind and Physically 
Handicapped for distribution through a network of State and 
locally supported libraries. At present, 57 regional libraries 
in 49 States, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands, 
Puerto Rico, and Guam house and circulate books and magazines 
to eligible readers. Seventy-eight subregional libraries in 17 
States assist at the local public library level; 53 libraries 
and 4 cooperating agencies distribute sound reproducers. Two 
multistate centers, under contract to the National Library 
Service, store and distribute books and other materials in 
their geographical regions. The program supports a readership 
of approximately 700,000.

                       Administrative Provisions

    Secs. 1301-1302. The Committee has included two routine 
administrative provisions carried in prior years.
    Sec. 1303. United States Diplomatic Facilities. The 
Department of State [DOS] has established a Capital Security 
Cost-Sharing Program, designed to have all U.S. Government 
agencies with an overseas presence pay a portion of DOS' 
building program, based on the number of employees overseas. 
This provision limits the amount of reimbursement from the 
Library of Congress.
    Sec. 1304. Competitive Status. This provision confers 
``competitive status'' to Library of Congress employees who 
have completed their probationary period in the Library, 
enabling them to apply for competitive service positions in the 
executive branch on an equal footing with ``career'' executive 
branch employees.
    Sec. 1305. Selection Priority For Displaced Library Of 
Congress Employees. This provision grants to LOC employees who 
receive a reduction in force notice the same priority for 
selection for competitive service positions in the executive 
branch as is currently granted to executive branch employees 
who are displaced from their positions.

                       GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE


                   Congressional Printing and Binding

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $87,209,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     100,285,000
House allowance.........................................      95,233,000
Committee recommendation................................      97,300,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $97,300,000. 
This is $10,091,000 over the current level and $2,985,000 below 
the budget request. The increase above the fiscal year 2006 
level will provide for the continuation of congressional 
printing and binding operations at required levels, cover pay 
and price level increases, and provide for the production of 
the 2006 edition of the U.S. Code which by law is updated every 
6 years. Funds are also provided for an anticipated workload 
increase.
    The following table compares the component categories 
within this account for fiscal year 2007. The Committee has not 
recommended separate amounts for each activity in order to give 
GPO the flexibility to meet changing requirements.

Committee recommendation................................      40,000,000

    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $40,000,000, a 
reduction of $3,000,000 below the budget request and an 
increase of $6,996,000 above the enacted level. This provides 
for anticipated pay and price level increases, distribution of 
the 2006 edition of the U.S. Code to depository libraries and 
other recipients, and investments in information technology and 
the future digital system.
    This appropriation provides for salaries and expenses 
associated with the distribution of Government documents to 
depository and international exchange libraries, the cataloging 
and indexing of Government publications, and the distribution 
of publications authorized by law at the request of Members of 
Congress and other Government agencies.

    The Committee recommends $2,980,000, a reduction of 
$5,251,000 below the budget request and an increase of 
$2,000,000 above the fiscal year 2006 level, for the GPO 
Revolving Fund. These funds are for workforce retraining 
efforts.

                    GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE


                         Salaries and Expenses

Appropriations, 2006....................................    $477,571,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................     502,370,000
House allowance.........................................     488,234,000
Committee recommendation................................     498,620,000

    The Committee recommends funding of $498,620,000 for 
salaries and expenses of the Government Accountability Office, 
a reduction of $3,750,000 below the request level. 
Additionally, $6,985,000 is authorized in offsetting 
collections derived from rent receipts and reimbursements for 
conducting financial audits of Government corporations, for a 
total of $505,605,000. The amount recommended provides for 
inflationary increases and other ``uncontrollable'' costs and 
will provide for an FTE level of 3,257. Reductions below the 
request level are to be taken from building management and 
other lower priority activities.
    The Committee has included the requested increase of 
$1,825,000 to enhance GAO's legacy business systems, including 
$1,400,000 for the replacement of GAO's financial management 
system. If the current antiquated system is not replaced, GAO 
is at risk of being unable to manage effectively the financial 
operations, provide Congress with reliable financial 
information, and effectively manage internal controls without 
substantial manual intervention.
    Reducing Carbon Dioxide Emissions.--The Committee instructs 
GAO to conduct a study within 90 days of enactment of this act 
on Congress' carbon dioxide emissions, or ``carbon footprint,'' 
and the ways in which Congress could reduce its emissions by 6 
percent by 2010. When conducting this study, GAO should 
consider both the near-term and long-term costs as well as the 
potential for cost savings associated with reducing Congress' 
carbon footprint.

                OPEN WORLD LEADERSHIP CENTER TRUST FUND

Appropriations, 2006....................................     $13,860,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................      14,400,000
House allowance.........................................      13,400,000
Committee recommendation................................      14,000,000

    The Committee recommends $14,000,000 as a payment to the 
Open World Leadership Center Trust Fund. The Center for Russian 
Leadership Development was established on December 21, 2000 
(Public Law 106-554) as a legislative branch entity. The fiscal 
year 2003 Consolidated Appropriation Resolution (Public Law 
108-7) carried legislation (section 1401) changing the name to 
the Open World Leadership Center and expanding the mission of 
the program to include Newly Independent States of the former 
Soviet Union including the Baltic States. The mission of the 
Center is to enable emerging political leaders of Russia and 
Newly Independent States at all levels of government to gain 
significant, first-hand exposure to the American free market 
economic system and the operation of American democratic 
institutions through visits to comparable governments and 
communities in the United States.

   JOHN C. STENNIS CENTER FOR PUBLIC SERVICE TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

Appropriations, 2006....................................        $430,000
Budget estimate, 2007...................................         430,000
House allowance.........................................         430,000
Committee recommendation................................         430,000

    The John C. Stennis Center for Public Service Training and 
Development was created by Congress in 1988. The mandate of the 
Center is to promote and strengthen public service. The 
Committee recommends the budget request of $430,000, as 
authorized by 2 U.S.C. 1105, for the Center's congressional 
staff training and development programs.

                                TITLE II

                           GENERAL PROVISIONS

    Included are several routine general provisions carried 
annually in the bill (secs. 201-208), as follows:
    Section 201 bans the use of appropriated funds for service 
and maintenance of private vehicles, except under such 
regulations as may be promulgated by the House Administration 
Committee and the Senate Rules and Administration Committee, 
respectively.
    Section 202 limits the availability for obligation of 
appropriations to the fiscal year for which it is expressly 
provided in the bill accompanying this report.
    Section 203 provides that any pay rate and title 
designation for a staff position created in this Act, and not 
specifically established by the Legislative Pay Act of 1929, is 
to be made permanent law by this Act. Further, any pay rate and 
title change for a position provided for in the 1929 Act is to 
be made permanent law by this act and any changes in the 
official expenses of Members, officers, and committees, and in 
the clerk hire of the House and Senate are to be made permanent 
law by this Act.
    Section 204 bans the use of funds for contracts unless such 
contracts are matters of public record and are available for 
public inspection.
    Section 205 appropriates such sums as may be necessary for 
the payment of settlements and awards pursuant to Public Law 
104-1.
    Section 206 authorizes legislative branch entities 
participating in the Legislative Branch Financial Managers 
Council [LBFMC] to finance the costs of the LBFMC.
    Section 207 pertains to the House.
    Section 208 prohibits unauthorized transfers of funds to 
other agencies.
    Sec. 209 requires the use of ethanol fuel and ethanol 
compatible motor vehicles by legislative branch agencies, to 
the extent practicable. The Committee recognizes the importance 
of alternative fuels in achieving our Nation's energy 
independence. E-85 is a proven, effective, ethanol-based 
alternative fuel currently used by executive branch departments 
and agency vehicles. An increasing number of vehicles leased 
and operated for legislative branch purposes are capable of 
operating on E-85 fuel, yet there are few commercial or 
government fueling stations within proximity to the Capitol 
campus. Therefore, the Committee directs the Architect of the 
Capitol [AOC] to install an E-85 fuel pump and related 
infrastructure on the Capitol complex and make it available to 
legislative branch agency vehicles. To the greatest extent 
practicable, the Committee requires that all future vehicles 
purchased with funding appropriated through the legislative 
branch appropriations bill be E-85 compatible and use E-85 
fuel. Further, the Committee directs that all existing vehicles 
purchased with funding provided in any legislative branch 
appropriations Act which are E-85 compatible be required to use 
E-85 fuel, as practicable.

  COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 7, RULE XVI, OF THE STANDING RULES OF THE 
                                 SENATE

    Paragraph 7 of rule XVI requires that Committee reports on 
general appropriations bills identify, with particularity, each 
Committee amendment to the House bill ``which proposes an item 
of appropriation which is not made to carry out the provisions 
of an existing law, a treaty stipulation, or an act or 
resolution previously passed by the Senate during that 
session.''
    The Committee has recommended no such funding.

COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 7(C), RULE XXVI OF THE STANDING RULES OF THE 
                                 SENATE

    Pursuant to paragraph 7(c) of rule XXVI, on June 22, 2006, 
the Committee ordered reported, en bloc, H.R. 5384, making 
appropriations for Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and
