SEC. 345. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING PROCESS FOR MODERNIZATION OF 
                        ARMY COMPUTER SERVICES.

    (a) Purpose of Modernization.--It is the sense of Congress that any 
modernization of computer services (also known as the Army Wholesale 
Logistics Modernization Program) of the Army Communications Electronics 
Command of the Army Materiel Command to replace the systems currently 
provided by the Logistics Systems Support Center in St. Louis, Missouri, 
and the Industrial Logistics System Center in Chambersburg, 
Pennsylvania, should have as a primary goal the sustainment of military 
readiness.
    (b) Use of Standard Industry Integration Practices.--It is the sense 
of Congress that, in order to sustain readiness, any contract for the 
modernization of the computer services referred to in subsection (a), in 
addition to containing all of the requirements specified by the 
Secretary of the Army, should require the use of standard industry 
integration practices to provide further readiness risk mitigation.
    (c) Proposed Contractor Practices.--It is the sense of Congress that 
the following practices should be employed by any contractor engaged in 
the modernization of the computer services referred to in subsection (a) 
to ensure continued readiness:
            (1) Testing practices.--Before any proposed modernization 
        solution is implemented, the solution should be rigorously

[[Page 113 STAT. 571]]

        tested to ensure that it meets the performance requirements of 
        the Army and all other functional requirements. At each step in 
        the testing process, confirmation of successful test completion 
        should be required before the contractor begins the next step of 
        the modernization process.
            (2) Implementation team.--The Secretary of the Army should 
        establish an implementation team to monitor efficiencies and 
        effectiveness of the modernization solutions.

    (d) Readiness Sustainment.--It is the sense of Congress that the 
following additional readiness sustainment measures should be undertaken 
as part of the modernization of the computer services referred to in 
subsection (a):
            (1) Government oversight.--It is extremely important that 
        the Army Materiel Command retains sufficient in-house expertise 
        to ensure that readiness is not adversely affected by the 
        modernization efforts and to effectively oversee contractor 
        performance.
            (2) Use of contract partnering.--The Army Materiel Command 
        should encourage partnerships with the contractor, with the 
        primary goal of providing quality contract deliverables on time 
        and at a reasonable price. Any such partnership agreement should 
        constitute a mutual commitment on how the Army Materiel Command 
        and the contractor will interact during the course of the 
        contract, with the objective of facilitating optimum contract 
        performance through teamwork, enhanced communications, 
        cooperation, and good faith performance.

    (a) Findings.--Congress reaffirms the findings made in section 
1052(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year

[[Page 113 STAT. 622]]

1995 (Public Law 103-337; 108 Stat. 2844) that the heavy cruiser U.S.S. 
INDIANAPOLIS (CA-35)--
            (1) served the people of the United States with valor and 
        distinction throughout World War II in action against enemy 
        forces in the Pacific Theater of Operations from December 7, 
        1941 to July 29, 1945;
            (2) with her courageous and capable crew, compiled an 
        impressive combat record during the war in the Pacific, 
        receiving in the process 10 battle stars in actions from the 
        Aleutians to Okinawa;
            (3) <<NOTE: Raymond Spruance. William F. Halsey.>> rendered 
        invaluable service in anti-shipping, shore bombardment, anti-
        air, and invasion support roles and serving as flagship for the 
        Fifth Fleet under Admiral Raymond Spruance and flagship for the 
        Third Fleet under Admiral William F. Halsey; and
             (4) transported the world's first operational atomic bomb 
        from the United States to the Island of Tinian, accomplishing 
        that mission at a record average speed of 29 knots.

    (b) Further Findings.--Congress further finds that--
            (1) from participation in the earliest offensive actions in 
        the Pacific during World War II to her pivotal role in 
        delivering the weapon that brought the war to an end, the U.S.S. 
        INDIANAPOLIS and her crew left an indelible imprint on the 
        Nation's struggle to eventual victory in the war in the Pacific; 
        and
            (2) the selfless, courageous, and outstanding performance of 
        duty by that ship and her crew throughout the war in the Pacific 
        reflects great credit upon the ship and her crew, thus upholding 
        the very highest traditions of the United States Navy.

    (c) Sense of Congress.--(1) It is the sense of Congress that the 
President should award a Presidential Unit Citation to the crew of the 
U.S.S. INDIANAPOLIS (CA-35) in recognition of the courage and skill 
displayed by the members of the crew of that vessel throughout World War 
II.
    (2) A citation described in paragraph (1) may be awarded without 
regard to any provision of law or regulation prescribing a time 
limitation that is otherwise applicable with respect to recommendation 
for, or the award of, such a citation.

                        DANGER SPECIAL PAY DURING CONTINGENCY 
                        OPERATIONS.

    It is the sense of Congress that a member of the Armed Forces who is 
receiving special pay under section 310 of title 37, United States Code, 
while assigned to duty in support of a contingency operation should be 
treated under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 in the same manner as a 
member of the Armed Forces serving in a combat zone (as defined in 
section 112 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986).

SEC. 701. PHARMACY BENEFITS PROGRAM.

    (a) In General.--(1) Chapter 55 of title 10, United States Code, is 
amended by inserting after section 1074f the following new section:

``Sec. 1074g. Pharmacy benefits program

    ``(a) Pharmacy Benefits.--(1) The Secretary of Defense, after 
consulting with the other administering Secretaries, shall establish an 
effective, efficient, integrated pharmacy benefits program under this 
chapter (hereinafter in this section referred to as the `pharmacy 
benefits program').
    ``(2)(A) The pharmacy benefits program shall include a uniform 
formulary of pharmaceutical agents, which shall assure the availability 
of pharmaceutical agents in the complete range of therapeutic classes. 
The selection for inclusion on the uniform formulary of particular 
pharmaceutical agents in each therapeutic class shall be based on the 
relative clinical and cost effectiveness of the agents in such class.
    ``(B) In considering the relative clinical effectiveness of agents 
under subparagraph (A), the Secretary shall presume inclusion in a 
therapeutic class of a pharmaceutical agent, unless the Pharmacy and 
Therapeutics Committee established under subsection (b) finds that a 
pharmaceutical agent does not have a significant, clinically meaningful 
therapeutic advantage in terms of safety, effectiveness, or clinical 
outcome over the other drugs included on the uniform formulary.
    ``(C) In considering the relative cost effectiveness of agents under 
subparagraph (A), the Secretary shall rely on the evaluation by the 
Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee of the costs of agents in a 
therapeutic class in relation to the safety, effectiveness, and clinical 
outcomes of such agents.
    ``(D) <<NOTE: Procedures.>> The Secretary shall establish procedures 
for the selection of particular pharmaceutical agents for the uniform 
formulary. Such procedures shall be established so as best to 
accomplish, in the judgment of the Secretary, the objectives set forth 
in paragraph (1). No pharmaceutical agent may be excluded from the 
uniform formulary except upon the recommendation of the Pharmacy and 
Therapeutics Committee. <<NOTE: Deadline.>> The Secretary shall begin to 
implement the uniform formulary not later than October 1, 2000.

    ``(E) Pharmaceutical agents included on the uniform formulary shall 
be available to eligible covered beneficiaries through--
            ``(i) facilities of the uniformed services, consistent with 
        the scope of health care services offered in such facilities;
            ``(ii) retail pharmacies designated or eligible under the 
        TRICARE program or the Civilian Health and Medical Program of 
        the Uniformed Services to provide pharmaceutical agents to 
        covered beneficiaries; or
            ``(iii) the national mail-order pharmacy program.

    ``(3) The pharmacy benefits program shall assure the availability of 
clinically appropriate pharmaceutical agents to members of the armed 
forces, including, where appropriate, agents not included on the uniform 
formulary described in paragraph (2).

[[Page 113 STAT. 678]]

    ``(4) The pharmacy benefits program may provide that prior 
authorization be required for certain pharmaceutical agents to assure 
that the use of such agents is clinically appropriate.
    ``(5) The pharmacy benefits program shall assure the availability to 
eligible covered beneficiaries of pharmaceutical agents not included on 
the uniform formulary. Such pharmaceutical agents shall be available 
through at least one of the means described in paragraph (2)(E) under 
terms and conditions that may include cost sharing by the eligible 
covered beneficiary in addition to any such cost sharing applicable to 
agents on the uniform formulary.
    ``(6) The Secretary, as part of the regulations established under 
subsection (g), may establish cost sharing requirements (which may be 
established as a percentage or fixed dollar amount) under the pharmacy 
benefits program for generic, formulary, and nonformulary agents. For 
nonformulary agents, cost sharing shall be consistent with common 
industry practice and not in excess of amounts generally comparable to 
20 percent for beneficiaries covered by section 1079 of this title or 25 
percent for beneficiaries covered by section 1086 of this title.
    ``(7) <<NOTE: Procedures.>> The Secretary shall establish procedures 
for eligible covered beneficiaries to receive pharmaceutical agents not 
included on the uniform formulary, but, considered to be clinically 
necessary. Such procedures shall include peer review procedures under 
which the Secretary may determine that there is a clinical justification 
for the use of a pharmaceutical agent that is not on the uniform 
formulary, in which case the pharmaceutical agent shall be provided 
under the same terms and conditions as an agent on the uniform 
formulary. Such procedures shall also include an expeditious appeals 
process for an eligible covered beneficiary, or a network or uniformed 
provider on behalf of the beneficiary, to establish clinical 
justification for the use of a pharmaceutical agent that is not on the 
uniform formulary.

    ``(8) In carrying out this subsection, the Secretary shall ensure 
that an eligible covered beneficiary may continue to receive coverage 
for any maintenance pharmaceutical that is not on the uniform formulary 
and that was prescribed for the beneficiary before the date of the 
enactment of this section and stabilized the medical condition of the 
beneficiary.
    ``(b) Establishment of Committee.--(1) The Secretary of Defense 
shall, in consultation with the Secretaries of the military departments, 
establish a Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee for the purpose of 
developing the uniform formulary of pharmaceutical agents required by 
subsection (a), reviewing such formulary on a periodic basis, and making 
additional recommendations regarding the formulary as the committee 
determines necessary and appropriate. The committee shall include 
representatives of pharmacies of the uniformed services facilities, 
contractors responsible for the TRICARE retail pharmacy program, 
contractors responsible for the national mail-order pharmacy program, 
providers in facilities of the uniformed services, and TRICARE network 
providers. Committee members shall have expertise in treating the 
medical needs of the populations served through such entities and in the 
range of pharmaceutical and biological medicines available for treating 
such populations. <<NOTE: Procedures.>> The committee shall function 
under procedures established by the Secretary under the regulations 
required by subsection (g).

[[Page 113 STAT. 679]]

    ``(2) <<NOTE: Deadline.>> Not later than 90 days after the 
establishment of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee by the 
Secretary, the committee shall convene to design a proposed uniform 
formulary for submission to the Secretary. After such 90-day period, the 
committee shall meet at least quarterly and shall, during meetings, 
consider for inclusion on the uniform formulary under the standards 
established in subsection (a) any drugs newly approved by the Food and 
Drug Administration.

    ``(c) Advisory <<NOTE: Establishment.>> Panel.--(1) Concurrent with 
the establishment of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee under 
subsection (b), the Secretary shall establish a Uniform Formulary 
Beneficiary Advisory Panel to review and comment on the development of 
the uniform formulary. The Secretary shall consider the comments of the 
panel before implementing the uniform formulary or implementing changes 
to the uniform formulary.

    ``(2) The Secretary shall determine the size and membership of the 
panel established under paragraph (1), which shall include members that 
represent nongovernmental organizations and associations that represent 
the views and interests of a large number of eligible covered 
beneficiaries.
    ``(d) Procedures.--(1) In the operation of the pharmacy benefits 
program under subsection (a), the Secretary of Defense shall assure 
through management and new contractual arrangements that financial 
resources are aligned such that the cost of prescriptions is borne by 
the organization that is financially responsible for the health care of 
the eligible covered beneficiary.
    ``(2) <<NOTE: Deadline.>> Not later than 6 months after the date of 
the enactment of this section, the Secretary shall utilize a 
modification to the bid price adjustment methodology in the current 
managed care support contracts to ensure equitable and timely 
reimbursement to the TRICARE managed care support contractors for 
pharmaceutical products delivered in the nonmilitary environments. The 
methodology shall take into account the ``at-risk'' nature of the 
contracts as well as managed care support contractor pharmacy costs 
attributable to changes to pharmacy service or formulary management at 
military medical treatment facilities, and other military activities and 
policies that affect costs of pharmacy benefits provided through the 
Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services. The 
methodology shall also account for military treatment facility costs 
attributable to the delivery of pharmaceutical products in the military 
facility environment which were prescribed by a network provider.

    ``(e) Pharmacy <<NOTE: Deadline.>> Data Transaction Service.--Not 
later than April 1, 2000, the Secretary of Defense shall implement the 
use of the Pharmacy Data Transaction Service in all fixed facilities of 
the uniformed services under the jurisdiction of the Secretary, the 
TRICARE retail pharmacy program, and the national mail-order pharmacy 
program.

    ``(f) Definitions.--As used in this section--
            ``(1) the term `eligible covered beneficiary' means a 
        covered beneficiary for whom eligibility to receive pharmacy 
        benefits through the means described in subsection (a)(2)(E) is 
        established under this chapter or another provision of law; and
            ``(2) the term `pharmaceutical agent' means drugs, 
        biological products, and medical devices under the regulatory 
        authority of the Food and Drug Administration.

[[Page 113 STAT. 680]]

    ``(g) Regulations.--The Secretary of Defense shall, after 
consultation with the other administering Secretaries, promulgate 
regulations to carry out this section.''.
    (2) The table of sections at the beginning of such chapter is 
amended by inserting after the item relating to section 1074f the 
following new item:
``1074g. Pharmacy benefits program.''.

    (b) Deadline <<NOTE: 10 USC 1074g note.>> for Establishment of 
Committee.--Not later than 30 days after the date of the enactment of 
this Act, the Secretary shall establish the Pharmacy and Therapeutics 
Committee required by section 1074g(b) of title 10, United States Code.

    (c) Reports <<NOTE: Deadline. 10 USC 1074g note.>> Required.--Not 
later than April 1 and October 1 of fiscal years 2000 and 2001, the 
Secretary of Defense shall submit to Congress a report on--

        subsection (a) of section 1074g of title 10, United States Code 
        (as added by subsection (a));
            (2) the results of a confidential survey conducted by the 
        Secretary of prescribers for military medical treatment 
        facilities and TRICARE contractors to determine--
                    (A) during the most recent fiscal year, how often 
                prescribers attempted to prescribe non-formulary or non-
                preferred prescription drugs, how often such prescribers 
                were able to do so, and whether covered beneficiaries 
                were able to fill such prescriptions without undue 
                delay;
                    (B) the understanding by prescribers of the reasons 
                that military medical treatment facilities or civilian 
                contractors preferred certain pharmaceuticals to others; 
                and
                    (C) the impact of any restrictions on access to non-
                formulary prescriptions on the clinical decisions of the 
                prescribers and the aggregate cost, quality, and 
                accessibility of health care provided to covered 
                beneficiaries;
            (3) the operation of the Pharmacy Data Transaction Service 
        required by subsection (e) of such section 1074g; and
            (4) any other actions taken by the Secretary to improve 
        management of the pharmacy benefits program under such section.

    (d) Study <<NOTE: 10 USC 1074g note. Deadline.>> for Design of 
Pharmacy Benefit for Certain Covered Beneficiaries.--(1) Not later than 
April 15, 2001, the Secretary of Defense shall prepare and submit to 
Congress--
            (A) a study on a design for a comprehensive pharmacy benefit 
        for covered beneficiaries under chapter 55 of title 10, United 
        States Code, who are entitled to benefits under part A, and 
        enrolled under part B, of title XVIII of the Social Security 
        Act; and
            (B) an estimate of the costs of implementing and operating 
        such design.

    (2) The design described in paragraph (1)(A) shall incorporate the 
elements of the pharmacy benefits program required to be established 
under section 1074g of title 10, United States Code (as added by

        integrating chiropractic health care services into the military 
        health care system;

                        CUSTODIAL CARE FOR CERTAIN CHAMPUS 
                        BENEFICIARIES.

    (a) Continuation of Care.--(1) The Secretary of Defense may, in any 
case in which the Secretary makes the determination described in 
paragraph (2), continue to provide payment under the Civilian Health and 
Medical Program of the Uniformed Services (as defined in section 1072 of 
title 10, United States Code), for domiciliary or custodial care 
services provided to an eligible beneficiary that would otherwise be 
excluded from coverage under regulations implementing section 1077(b)(1) 
of such title.
    (2) A determination under this paragraph is a determination that 
discontinuation of payment for domiciliary or custodial care services or 
transition to provision of care under the individual case management 
program authorized by section 1079(a)(17) of such title would be--
            (A) inadequate to meet the needs of the eligible 
        beneficiary; and
            (B) unjust to such beneficiary.

    (3) As used in this section, the term ``eligible beneficiary'' means 
a covered beneficiary (as that term is defined in section 1072 of title 
10, United States Code) who, before the effective date of final 
regulations to implement the individual case management program 
authorized by section 1079(a)(17) of such title, were provided 
domiciliary or custodial care services for which the Secretary provided 
payment.
    (b) Prohibition on Establishment of Limited Transition Period.--The 
Secretary of Defense shall not place a time limit on the period during 
which the custodial care exclusions of the Department of Defense may be 
waived as part of the case management program of the Department.
    (c) Survey of Case Management and Custodial Care Policies.--The 
Secretary of Defense shall conduct a survey of federally funded and 
State funded programs for the medical care and management of persons 
whose care is considered to be custodial in nature. The survey shall 
examine, but shall not be limited to--
            (1) a comparison of the case management program of the 
        Department of Defense with similar Federal and State programs; 
        and
            (2) a comparison between the case management program of the 
        Department of Defense and the case management and custodial care 
        coverage offered by at least 10 of the most subscribed private 
        health insurance plans in the Federal Employees Health Benefits 
        Program (at least 5 of which shall be managed care 
        organizations), as determined in consultation with the Office of 
        Personnel Management.

[[Page 113 STAT. 683]]

    (d) Report <<NOTE: Deadline.>> on Survey of Case Management and 
Custodial Care Policies.--Not later than March 31, 2000, the Secretary 
shall submit a report on the survey required by subsection (c) to 
Congress. The Secretary shall include in the report any recommendations 
for legislative changes that the Secretary determines necessary to 
facilitate the case management of the Department of Defense, and a plan 
for any regulatory changes determined necessary by the Secretary. Such 
plan shall include any regulatory provisions that the Secretary 
determines necessary to address equitably the unique needs of the family 
members of active duty military personnel and to ensure the full 
integration of the case management program of the Department of Defense 
with other available family support services activities.
SEC. 704. ENHANCEMENT OF DENTAL BENEFITS FOR RETIREES.

    Subsection (d) of section 1076c of title 10, United States Code, is

and other basic restorative services, surgical services, and emergency 
services.''.

SEC. 820. REPORT ON OPTIONS FOR ACCELERATED ACQUISITION OF 
                        PRECISION MUNITIONS.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) Current Department of Defense inventories of many types 
        of precision munitions do not meet the requirements for such 
        munitions under the National Military Strategy that the 
        Department of Defense have the capability to conduct two nearly 
        simultaneous Major Theater Wars, and with respect to some types 
        of precision munitions, those requirements will not be met even 
        after planned acquisitions are complete.
            (2) Production lines for certain types of critical precision 
        munitions have been shut down, and the start-up production of 
        replacement precision munitions leaves a critical gap in 
        acquisition of follow-on precision munitions.
            (3) Shortages of conventional air-launched cruise missiles 
        during Operation Allied Force (conducted against the Federal 
        Republic of Yugoslavia in the spring of 1999) and the necessity 
        to replenish inventories of land-attack Tomahawk cruise missiles 
        following that operation indicate the critical need to maintain 
        sufficient inventories of precision munitions.

    (b) Report.--Not <<NOTE: Deadline.>> later than February 15, 2000, 
the Secretary of Defense shall submit to the congressional defense 
committees a report on the requirements of the Department of Defense for

            (1) At the meeting of the North Atlantic Council held in 
        Washington, DC, in April 1999, the NATO Heads of State and 
        Governments launched a Defense Capabilities Initiative.
            (2) The Defense Capabilities Initiative is designed to 
        improve the defense capabilities of the individual nations of 
        the NATO Alliance to ensure the effectiveness of future 
        operations across the full spectrum of Alliance missions in the 
        present and foreseeable security environment.
            (3) Under the Defense Capabilities Initiative, special focus 
        will be given to improving interoperability among Alliance

[[Page 113 STAT. 757]]

        forces and to increasing defense capabilities through 
        improvements in the deployability and mobility of Alliance 
        forces, the sustainability and logistics of those forces, the 
        survivability and effective engagement capability of those 
        forces, and command and control and information systems.
            (4) The successful implementation of the Defense 
        Capabilities Initiative will serve to enable all members of the 
        Alliance to make a more equitable contribution to the full 
        spectrum of Alliance missions, thereby increasing burdensharing 
        within the Alliance and enhancing the ability of European

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The Cold War between the United States and its allies 
        and the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and its 
        allies was the longest and most costly struggle for democracy 
        and freedom in the history of mankind.
            (2) Whether millions of people all over the world would live 
        in freedom hinged on the outcome of the Cold War.
            (3) Democratic countries bore the burden of the struggle and 
        paid the costs in order to preserve and promote democracy and 
        freedom.
            (4) The Armed Forces and the taxpayers of the United States 
        bore the greatest portion of that burden and struggle in order 
        to protect those principles.
            (5) Tens of thousands of United States soldiers, sailors, 
        airmen, Marines paid the ultimate price during the Cold War

[[Page 113 STAT. 765]]

        in order to preserve the freedoms and liberties enjoyed in 
        democratic countries.
            (6) The Berlin Wall erected in Berlin, Germany, epitomized 
        the totalitarianism that the United States struggled to 
        eradicate during the Cold War.
            (7) The fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989, was a 
        major event of the Cold War.
            (8) The Soviet Union collapsed on December 25, 1991.

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that the 
President should issue a proclamation calling on the people of the 
United States to observe the victory in the Cold War with appropriate 
ceremonies and activities.

War.--(1) Subject to paragraphs (2), (3), and (4), amounts authorized to

SEC. 1212. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING THE NEED FOR VIGOROUS 
                          PROSECUTION OF WAR CRIMES, GENOCIDE, AND 
                          CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY IN THE FORMER 
                          REPUBLIC OF YUGOSLAVIA.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:

[[Page 113 STAT. 785]]

            (1) The United Nations Security Council created the 
        International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (in 
        this section referred to as the ``ICTY'') by resolution on May 
        25, 1993.
            (2) Although the ICTY has indicted 89 people since its 
        creation, those indictments have only resulted in the trial and 
        conviction of 8 criminals.
            (3) The ICTY has jurisdiction to investigate grave breaches 
        of the 1949 Geneva Conventions (Article 2), violations of the 
        laws or customs of war (Article 3), genocide (Article 4), and 
        crimes against humanity (Article 5).
            (4) The Chief Prosecutor of the ICTY, Justice Louise Arbour, 
        stated on July 7, 1998, to the Contact Group for the former 
        Yugoslavia, that ``[t]he Prosecutor believes that the nature and 
        scale of the fighting indicate that an `armed conflict', within 
        the meaning of international law, exists in Kosovo. As a 
        consequence, she intends to bring charges for crimes against 
        humanity or war crimes, if evidence of such crimes is 
        established''.
            (5) Reports from Kosovar Albanian refugees provide detailed 
        accounts of systematic efforts to displace the entire Muslim 
        population of Kosovo.
            (6) In furtherance of this plan, Serbian troops, police, and 
        paramilitary forces have engaged in detention and summary 
        execution of men of all ages, wanton destruction of civilian 
        housing, forcible expulsions, mass executions in at least 60 
        villages and towns, as well as widespread rape of women and 
        young girls.
            (7) These reports of atrocities provide prima facie evidence 
        of war crimes and crimes against humanity, as well as possible 
        genocide.
            (8) Any criminal investigation is best served by the 
        depositions and interviews of witnesses as soon after the 
        commission of the crime as possible.
            (9) The indictment, arrest, and trial of war criminals would 
        provide a significant deterrent to further atrocities.
            (10) The ICTY has issued 14 international warrants for war 
        crimes suspects that have yet to be served, despite knowledge of 
        the suspects' whereabouts.
            (11) Vigorous prosecution of war crimes after the conflict 
        in Bosnia may have prevented the ongoing atrocities in Kosovo.
            (12) Investigative reporters have identified specific 
        documentary evidence implicating the Serbian leadership in the 
        commission of war crimes.
            (13) NATO forces and forensic teams deployed in Kosovo have 
        uncovered physical evidence of war crimes, including mass 
        graves.

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the United States, in coordination with other United 
        Nations member states, should provide sufficient resources for 
        an expeditious and thorough investigation of allegations of the 
        atrocities and war crimes committed in Kosovo;
            (2) the United States, through its intelligence services, 
        should provide all possible cooperation in the gathering of 
        evidence of sufficient specificity and credibility to secure the 
        indictment of those responsible for the commission of war 
        crimes,

[[Page 113 STAT. 786]]

        crimes against humanity, and genocide in the former Yugoslavia;
            (3) where evidence warrants, indictments for war crimes, 
        crimes against humanity, and genocide should be issued against 
        suspects regardless of their position within the Serbian 
        leadership;
            (4) the United States and all nations have an obligation to 
        honor arrest warrants issued by the ICTY and should use all 
        appropriate means to apprehend and bring to justice through the 
        ICTY individuals who are already under indictment;
            (5) any final settlement regarding Kosovo should not bar the 
        indictment, apprehension, or prosecution of persons accused of 
        war crimes, crimes against humanity, or genocide committed 
        during operations in Kosovo; and
            (6) President Slobodan Milosevic should be held accountable 
        for his actions while President of the Federal Republic of 
        Yugoslavia or President of the Republic of Serbia in initiating 
        four armed conflicts and taking actions leading to the deaths of 
        tens of thousands of people and responsibility for murder, rape, 
        terrorism, destruction, and ethnic cleansing.

SEC. 1234. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING THE CONTINUATION OF 
                          SANCTIONS AGAINST LIBYA.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) <<NOTE: Pan American Flight 103.>> On December 21, 1988, 
        270 people, including 189 United States citizens, were killed in 
        a terrorist bombing on Pan American Flight 103 over Lockerbie, 
        Scotland.
            (2) <<NOTE: Abd al-Baset Ali al-Megrahi. Al-Amin Khalifah 
        Fhimah.>> The United Kingdom and the United States indicted two 
        Libyan intelligence agents, Abd al-Baset Ali al-Megrahi and Al-
        Amin Khalifah Fhimah, in 1991 and sought their extradition from 
        Libya to the United States or the United Kingdom to stand trial 
        for this heinous terrorist act.
            (3) <<NOTE: Muammar Qadhafi.>> The United Nations Security 
        Council called for the extradition of those suspects in Security 
        Council Resolution 731 and imposed sanctions on Libya in 
        Security Council Resolutions 748 and 883 because Libyan leader 
        Colonel Muammar Qadhafi refused to transfer the suspects to 
        either the United States or the United Kingdom to stand trial.
            (4) United Nations Security Council Resolutions 731, 748, 
        and 883 demand that Libya cease all support for terrorism, turn 
        over the two suspects, cooperate with the investigation and the 
        trial, and address the issue of appropriate compensation.
            (5) The sanctions in United Nations Security Council 
        Resolutions 748 and 883 include--
                    (A) a worldwide ban on Libya's national airline;
                    (B) a ban on flights into and out of Libya by other 
                nations' airlines; and
                    (C) a prohibition on supplying arms, airplane parts, 
                and certain oil equipment to Libya, and a blocking of 
                Libyan Government funds in other countries.
            (6) Colonel Muammar Qadhafi for many years refused to 
        extradite the suspects to either the United States or the United 
        Kingdom and had insisted that he would only transfer the 
        suspects to a third and neutral country to stand trial.
            (7) On August 24, 1998, the United States and the United 
        Kingdom agreed to the proposal that Colonel Qadhafi transfer the 
        suspects to The Netherlands, where they would stand trial under 
        a Scottish court, under Scottish law, and with a panel of 
        Scottish judges.

[[Page 113 STAT. 790]]

            (8) The United Nations Security Council endorsed the United 
        States-United Kingdom proposal on August 27, 1998 in United 
        Nations Security Council Resolution 1192.
            (9) The United States, consistent with United Nations 
        Security Council resolutions, called on Libya to ensure the 
        production of evidence, including the presence of witnesses 
        before the court, and to comply fully with all the requirements 
        of the United Nations Security Council resolutions.
            (10) After years of intensive diplomacy, Colonel Qadhafi 
        finally transferred the two Libyan suspects to The Netherlands 
        on April 5, 1999, and the United Nations Security Council, in 
        turn, suspended its sanctions against Libya that same day.
            (11) Libya has only fulfilled one of four conditions (the 
        transfer of the two suspects accused in the Lockerbie bombing) 
        set forth in United Nations Security Council Resolutions 731, 
        748, and 883 that would justify the lifting of United Nations 
        Security Council sanctions against Libya.
            (12) Libya has not fulfilled the other three conditions 
        (cooperation with the Lockerbie investigation and trial, 
        renunciation of and ending support for terrorism, and payment of 
        appropriate compensation) necessary to lift the United Nations 
        Security Council sanctions.
            (13) The United Nations Secretary General issued a report to 
        the Security Council on June 30, 1999, on the issue of Libya's 
        compliance with the remaining conditions.
            (14) Any member of the United Nations Security Council has 
        the right to introduce a resolution to lift the sanctions 
        against Libya now that the United Nations Secretary General's 
        report has been issued.
            (15) The United States Government considers Libya a state 
        sponsor of terrorism and the State Department Report, ``Patterns 
        of Global Terrorism; 1998'', stated that Colonel Qadhafi 
        ``continued publicly and privately to support Palestinian 
        terrorist groups, including the PIJ and the PFLP-GC''.
            (16) United States Government sanctions (other than 
        sanctions on food or medicine) should be maintained on Libya, 
        and in accordance with United States law, the Secretary of State 
        should keep Libya on the list of countries the governments of 
        which have repeatedly provided support for acts of international 
        terrorism under section 6(j) of the Export Administration Act of 
        1979 in light of Libya's ongoing support for terrorist groups.

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that the 
President should use all diplomatic means necessary, including the use 
of the United States veto at the United Nations Security Council, to 
prevent the Security Council from lifting sanctions against Libya until

SEC. 1235. SENSE OF CONGRESS AND REPORT ON DISENGAGING FROM 
                          NONCRITICAL OVERSEAS MISSIONS INVOLVING 
                          UNITED STATES COMBAT FORCES.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) It is the National Security Strategy of the United 
        States to ``deter and defeat large-scale, cross-border 
        aggression in two distant theaters in overlapping time frames''.

[[Page 113 STAT. 791]]

            (2) The deterrence of Iraq and Iran in Southwest Asia and 
        the deterrence of North Korea in Northeast Asia represent two 
        such potential large-scale, cross-border theater requirements.
            (3) The United States has 120,000 military personnel 
        permanently assigned to the Southwest Asia and Northeast Asia 
        theaters.
            (4) The United States has an additional 70,000 military 
        personnel assigned to non-NATO/non-Pacific threat foreign 
        countries.
            (5) The United States has more than 6,000 military personnel 
        in Bosnia-Herzegovina on indefinite assignment.
            (6) The United States has diverted permanently assigned 
        resources from other theaters to support operations in the 
        Balkans.
            (7) The United States provides military forces to seven 
        active United Nations peacekeeping operations, including some 
        missions that have continued for decades.
            (8) Between 1986 and 1998, the number of United States 
        military deployments per year has nearly tripled at the same 
        time the Department of Defense budget has been reduced in real 
        terms by 38 percent.
            (9) The Army has 10 active-duty divisions today, down from 
        18 in 1991, while on an average day in fiscal year 1998, 28,000 
        United States Army soldiers were deployed to more than 70 
        countries for over 300 separate missions.
            (10) The number of fighter wings in the active component of 
        the Air Force has gone from 22 to 13 since 1991, while 70 
        percent of air sorties in Operation Allied Force over the 
        Balkans were United States-flown and the Air Force continues to 
        enforce northern and southern no-fly zones in Iraq. In response, 
        the Air Force has initiated a ``stop loss'' program to block 
        normal retirements and separations.
            (11) The Navy has been reduced in size to 339 ships, its 
        lowest level since 1938, necessitating the redeployment of the 
        only overseas homeported aircraft carrier from the western 
        Pacific to the Mediterranean to support Operation Allied Force.
            (12) In 1998, just 10 percent of eligible carrier naval 
        aviators (27 out of 261) accepted continuation bonuses and 
        remained in the service.
            (13) In 1998, 48 percent of Air Force pilots eligible for 
        continuation chose to leave the service.
            (14) The Army could fall 6,000 below congressionally 
        authorized strength levels by the end of 1999.

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the readiness of United States military forces to 
        execute the National Security Strategy of the United States 
        referred to in subsection (a)(1) is being eroded by a 
        combination of declining defense budgets and expanded missions; 
        and
            (2) there may be missions to which the United States is 
        contributing Armed Forces from which the United States can begin 
        disengaging.

    (c) Report <<NOTE: President. Deadline.>> Requirement.--Not later 
than March 1, 2000, the President shall submit to the Committee on Armed 
Services and the Committee on Appropriations of the Senate and the 
Committee on Armed Services and the Committee on Appropriations of the 
House of Representatives a report prioritizing the ongoing global

[[Page 113 STAT. 792]]

missions to which the United States is contributing forces. The 
President shall include in the report a feasibility analysis of how the 
United States can--
            (1) shift resources from low priority missions in support of 
        higher priority missions;
            (2) consolidate or reduce United States troop commitments 
        worldwide; and
            (3) end low priority missions.

paragraph (2), then the applicable number in effect under paragraph 
(1)(B)--
            ``(A) shall be 16 during the period beginning on the date on 
        which such certification is transmitted to Congress and ending 
        on the date specified in subparagraph (B); and

        after the date on which such certification is transmitted.

    ``(b) Waiver Authority.--If the START II treaty enters into force, 
the President may waive the application of the limitation in effect 
under paragraph (1)(B) or (3) of subsection (a), as the case may be, to

    It is the sense of Congress that, in negotiating a START III Treaty 
with the Russian Federation, or any other arms control

[[Page 113 STAT. 807]]

treaty with the Russian Federation that would require reductions in 
United States strategic nuclear forces, that--
            (1) the strategic nuclear forces and nuclear modernization 
        programs of the People's Republic of China and every other 
        nation possessing nuclear weapons should be taken into full 
        consideration in the negotiation of such treaty; and
            (2) the reductions in United States strategic nuclear forces 
        under such a treaty should not be to such an extent as to impede 
        the capability of the United States to respond militarily to any 
        militarily significant increase in the threat to United States 
        security or strategic stability posed by the People's Republic 
        of China and any other nation.

Federation and other potential nuclear adversaries.

    (b) Matters To Be Included.--The Secretary shall, at a minimum, 
include in the report the following:
            (1) A discussion of the policy defining the deterrence and 
        military-political objectives of the United States against 
        potential nuclear adversaries.
            (2) A discussion of the military requirements for United 
        States nuclear forces, the force structure and capabilities 
        necessary to meet those requirements, and how they relate to the 
        achievement of the objectives identified under paragraph (1).
            (3) A projection of the strategic nuclear force posture of 
        the United States and the Russian Federation that is anticipated

        capabilities of China and other potential nuclear weapon 
        ``rogue'' states in the foreseeable future, and an assessment of 
        the effect of these capabilities on strategic stability, 
        including their ability and inclination to use nuclear weapons 
        against the United States in a possible future crisis.
            (6) The Secretary's assessment of whether asymmetries 
        between the United States and Russia, including doctrine, 
        nonstrategic nuclear weapons, and active and passive defenses, 
        are likely to erode strategic stability in the foreseeable 
        future.

SEC. 1612. SENSE OF CONGRESS CONCERNING UNITED STATES COMMERCIAL 
                          SPACE LAUNCH CAPACITY.

    (a) Sense of Congress Concerning United States Commercial Space 
Launch Capacity.--It is the sense of Congress that Congress and the 
President should work together to stimulate and encourage the expansion 
of a commercial space launch capacity in the United States, including by 
taking actions to eliminate legal or regulatory barriers to long-term 
competitiveness of the United States commercial space launch industry.
    (b) Sense of Congress Concerning Policy of Permitting Export of 
Commercial Satellites to People's Republic of China for Launch.--It is 
the sense of Congress that Congress and the President should--
            (1) reexamine the current United States policy of permitting 
        the export of commercial satellites of United States origin to 
        the People's Republic of China for launch;
            (2) review the advantages and disadvantages of phasing out 
        that policy, including in that review advantages and 
        disadvantages identified by Congress, the executive branch, the 
        United States satellite industry, the United States space launch 
        industry, the United States telecommunications industry, and 
        other interested persons; and
            (3) if the phase out of that policy is adopted, permit the 
        export of a commercial satellite of United States origin for 
        launch in the People's Republic of China only if--
                    (A) the launch is licensed as of the commencement of 
                the phase out of that policy; and
                    (B) additional actions under section 1514 of the 
                Strom Thurmond National Defense Authorization Act for 
                Fiscal Year 1999 (Public Law 105-261; 112 Stat. 2175; 22 
                U.S.C. 2778 note) are taken to minimize the transfer of 
                technology to the People's Republic of China during the 
                course of the launch.

following criteria:
            (A) The school has a drop out rate that exceeds the national 
        average school drop out rate.
            (B) The school has a large percentage of students (as

        second language.
            (C) The school has a large percentage of students (as so 
        determined) who are at risk of educational failure by reason of 
        limited proficiency in English, poverty, race, geographic 
        location, or economic circumstances.
            (D) At least one-half of the students of the school are from 
        families with an income below the poverty line (as that term is 
        defined by the Office of Management and Budget and revised

[[Page 113 STAT. 822]]

    (d) Reimbursement Under Certain Circumstances.--(1) If a participant 
in the Troops-to-Teachers Program fails to obtain teacher certification 
or licensure or employment as an elementary or secondary school teacher 
or vocational or technical teacher as required by the agreement under 
section 1704(e) or voluntarily leaves, or is terminated for cause, from 
the employment during the four years of required service in violation of 
the agreement, the participant shall be required to reimburse the 
administering Secretary for any stipend paid to the participant under 
subsection (a) in an amount that bears the same ratio to the amount of 
the stipend as the unserved portion of required service bears to the 
four years of required service.
    (2) If a participant in the Troops-to-Teachers Program who is paid a 
bonus under subsection (b) fails to obtain employment for which the 
bonus was paid as required by the agreement under section 1704(e), or 
voluntarily leaves or is terminated for cause from the employment during 
the four years of required service in violation of the agreement, the 
participant shall be required to reimburse the administering Secretary 
for any bonus paid to the participant under that subsection in an amount 
that bears the same ratio to the amount of the bonus as the unserved 
portion of required service bears to the four years of required service.
    (3) The obligation to reimburse the administering Secretary under 
this subsection is, for all purposes, a debt owing the United States. A 
discharge in bankruptcy under title 11, United States Code, shall not 
release a participant from the obligation to reimburse the administering 
Secretary.
    (4) Any amount owed by a participant under this subsection shall 
bear interest at the rate equal to the highest rate being paid by the

accrue from the day on which the participant is first notified of the 
amount due.
    (e) Exceptions to Reimbursement Requirement.--A participant in the 
Troops-to-Teachers Program shall be excused from reimbursement under 
subsection (d) if the participant becomes permanently totally disabled 
as established by sworn affidavit of a qualified physician. The 
administering Secretary may also waive reimbursement in cases of extreme 
hardship to the participant, as determined by the administering 
Secretary.
    (f) Relationship to Educational Assistance Under Montgomery GI 
Bill.--The receipt by a participant in the Troops-to-Teachers Program of 
any assistance under the program shall not reduce or otherwise affect 
the entitlement of the participant to any benefits under chapter 30 of 
title 38, United States Code, or chapter 1606 of title 10, United States 
Code.
