    (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) budget uncertainty and reduced defense procurements have 
        had negative impacts on the tactical vehicle industrial base; 
        and
            (2) in such environment, the Army should consider innovative 
        contracting and acquisition strategies to maximize cost

[[Page 127 STAT. 691]]

        savings, improve the sustainment of the tactical vehicle 
        industrial base, and reduce risk during this downturn in defense 
        procurement.

        with section 2306b of title 10, United States Code, to enter 
        into one or more multiyear, multivehicle contracts for the 
        procurement of tactical vehicles beginning in fiscal year 2015 
        or thereafter.
            (2) Report.--Not later than 90 days after the date of the 
        enactment of this Act, the Secretary, in consultation with the 
        Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and 
        Logistics, shall submit to the congressional defense committees 
        a report on the possible multiyear, multivehicle contracting 
        options and other innovative contracting options considered in

        following:
                    (A) A business case analysis of a multiyear, 
                multivehicle contract for tactical vehicles, including 
                any potential increases in cost, savings, or risk that 
                may derive from such a contract in comparison to 
                standard contracting methods.
                    (B) An evaluation of whether the Secretary requires 
                legislative action to enter into such a multiyear, 
                multivehicle contract.
                    (C) Any other matters the Secretary determines 
                appropriate.

            (1) the United States develops and deploys regional 
        ballistic missile defense capabilities to protect the forward-
        deployed forces, allies, and partners of the United States 
        against regional ballistic missile threats, consistent with the 
        security obligations of the United States and as part of the 
        broader theater security and military plans of the geographic 
        combatant commanders of the United States;
            (2) in deciding on the deployment of regional missile 
        defense assets and capabilities of the United States, the 
        Secretary of Defense should give priority consideration to the 
        capabilities needed to deter and defend against the ballistic 
        missile threat, including the recommendations of the Joint 
        Chiefs of Staff and the priorities of the geographic combatant 
        commanders for meeting the operational needs of the commanders 
        for ballistic missile defense;
            (3) such deployment decisions should take into account all 
        of the ballistic missile threats to the forces, allies, and 
        partners of the United States in each region;
            (4) the United States should encourage the allies and 
        partners of the United States to acquire and contribute to

determination under subsection (a), the Secretary of Defense shall 
consider the following:
            (1) The allocation of National Guard force structure and 
        manpower to American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern 
        Mariana Islands in the event of the establishment of a unit of 
        the National Guard in American Samoa and in the Commonwealth of

        Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the 
        requirement for additional infrastructure, including information 
        technology infrastructure, to support such force structure, 
        based on the allocation derived from paragraph (1).
            (4) How a unit of the National Guard in American Samoa and 
        the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Island would 
        accommodate the National Guard Bureau's ``Essential Ten'' 
        homeland defense capabilities (i.e., aviation, engineering, 
        civil support teams, security, medical, transportation, 
        maintenance, logistics, joint force headquarters, and 
        communications) and reflect regional needs.

        time support, including National Guard technicians, required to 
        establish, maintain, and sustain a unit of the National Guard in 
        American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana 
        Islands, and the ability of American Samoa and of the 
        Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands to support 
        demographically a unit of the National Guard at each location.

        American Samoa and in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana 
        Islands.
            (3) A description of any required Department of Defense

                        DETERMINATIONS.

the sole factor in determining child custody in a State court proceeding 
involving a parent who is a member of the Armed Forces. The best 
interest of the child should always prevail in custody cases, but 
members of the Armed Forces should not lose custody of their children 
based solely upon service in the Armed Forces in defense of the United 
States.

                        DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS.

    (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Veterans 
        Affairs have failed to implement a solution that allows for 
        seamless electronic sharing of medical health care data; and
            (2) despite the significant amount of read-only information 
        shared between the Department of Defense and Department of 
        Veterans Affairs, most of the information shared as of the date 
        of the enactment of this Act is not standardized or available in 
        real time to support all clinical decisions.

[[Page 127 STAT. 795]]

    (b) Implementation.--The Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of 
Veterans Affairs--
            (1) shall each ensure that the electronic health record 
        systems of the Department of Defense and the Department of 
        Veterans Affairs are interoperable with an integrated display of

        by the Interagency Program Office of the Departments (in this 
        section referred to as the ``Office''), in collaboration with 
        the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information 
        Technology of the Department of Health and Human Services; and
            (2) shall each deploy modernized electronic health record 
        software supporting clinicians of the Departments by no later 
        than December 31, 2016, while ensuring continued support and 
        compatibility with the interoperability platform and full 
        standards-based interoperability.

    (c) Design Principles.--The interoperable electronic health records 
with integrated display of data, or a single electronic health record, 
established under subsection (b) shall adhere to the following 
principles:
            (1) To the extent practicable, efforts to establish such 
        records shall be based on objectives, activities, and milestones 
        established by the Joint Executive Committee Joint Strategic 
        Plan Fiscal Years 2013-2015, as well as future addendums or 
        revisions.
            (2) Transition the current data exchanges between the 
        Departments and private sector health care providers where 
        practical to modern, open-architecture frameworks that use 
        computable data mapped to national standards to make data 
        available for determining medical trends and for enhanced 
        clinician decision support.
            (3) Principles with respect to open architecture standards, 
        including--

                552(b)(4) of title 5, United States Code, if the 
                information had been obtained from a non-Federal party;
                    (B) the public is notified of the availability of 
                the software and related documentation for licensing and 
                interested parties have a fair opportunity to submit 
                applications for licensing;

[[Page 127 STAT. 803]]

                    (C) such licensing activities and licenses comply 
                with the requirements under section 209 of title 35, 
                United States Code; and
                    (D) the software originally was developed to meet 
                the military needs of the Department of Defense.
            (2) Protections against unauthorized disclosure.--The 
        Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of a military department 
        each shall provide appropriate precautions against the 
        unauthorized disclosure of any computer software or 
        documentation covered by paragraph (1)(A), including exemption 
        from section 552 of title 5, United States Code, for a period of 
        up to 5 years after the development of the computer software by 
        the DOD laboratory.

    (c) Royalties.--
            (1) Use of royalties.--Except as provided in paragraph (2), 
        any royalties or other payments received by the Department of 
        Defense or a military department from licensing computer 
        software or documentation under paragraph (b)(1) shall be 
        retained by the Department of Defense or the military department 
        and shall be disposed of as follows:
                    (A)(i) The Department of Defense or the military 
                department shall pay each year the first $2,000, and 
                thereafter at least 15 percent, of the royalties or 
                other payments, to be divided among the employees who 
                developed the computer software.
                    (ii) The Department of Defense or the military 
                department may provide appropriate lesser incentives, 
                from the royalties or other payments, to laboratory 
                employees who are not developers of such computer 
                software but who substantially increased the technical 
                value of the software.
                    (iii) The Department of Defense or the military 
                department shall retain the royalties and other payments 
                received until it makes payments to employees of a DOD 
                laboratory under clause (i) or (ii).
                    (iv) The Department of Defense or the military 
                department may retain an amount reasonably necessary to 
                pay expenses incidental to the administration and 
                distribution of royalties or other payments under this 
                section by an organizational unit of the Department of 
                Defense or military department other than its

            (B) The balance of the royalties or other payments shall be 
        transferred by the Department of Defense or the military 
        department to its laboratories, with the majority share of the 
        royalties or other payments going to the laboratory where the 
        development occurred. The royalties or other payments so 
        transferred to any DOD laboratory may be used or obligated by 
        that laboratory during the fiscal year in which they are 
        received or during the 2 succeeding fiscal years--

        Department of Defense, military department, or DOD laboratory 
        after payments have been made pursuant to subparagraphs (A) and 
        (B) that are unobligated and unexpended at the end of the second 
        fiscal year succeeding the fiscal year in which the royalties 
        and other payments were received shall be paid into the Treasury 
        of the United States.
            (2) Exception.--If, after payments under paragraph (1)(A), 
        the balance of the royalties or other payments received by the 
        Department of Defense or the military department in any fiscal 
        year exceed 5 percent of the funds received for use by the DOD 
        laboratory for research, development, engineering, testing, and 
        evaluation or other related administrative, processing, or 
        value-added activities for that year, 75 percent of such excess 
        shall be paid to the Treasury of the United States and the 
        remaining 25 percent may be used or obligated under paragraph 
        (1)(B). Any funds not so used or obligated shall be paid into 
        the Treasury of the United States.
            (3) Status of payments to employees.--Any payment made to an 
        employee under this section shall be in addition to the regular 
        pay of the employee and to any other awards made to the 
        employee, and shall not affect the entitlement of the employee 
        to any regular pay, annuity, or award to which the employee is 
        otherwise entitled or for which the employee is otherwise 
        eligible or limit the amount thereof except that the monetary 
        value of an award for the same project or effort shall be 
        deducted from the amount otherwise available under this 
        paragraph. Payments, determined under the terms of this 
        paragraph and made to an employee developer as such, may 
        continue after the developer leaves the DOD laboratory or the 
        Department of Defense or military department. Payments made 
        under this section shall not exceed $75,000 per year to any one 
        person, unless the President approves a larger award (with the 
        excess over $75,000 being treated as a Presidential award under 
        section 4504 of title 5, United States Code).

                      clearance decisions.
                    (B) Elimination or reduction, where possible, of the 
                use of databases and information sources that cannot be 
                accessed and processed automatically electronically, or 
                modification of such databases and information sources, 
                if appropriate and cost-effective, to enable electronic 
                access and processing.
                    (C) Access and analysis of government, publically 
                available, and commercial data sources, including social 
                media, that provide independent information pertinent to 
                adjudication guidelines and termination standards to 
                improve quality and timeliness, and reduce costs, of 
                investigations and reinvestigations.
                    (D) Use of government-developed and commercial 
                technology for continuous monitoring and evaluation of

                determinations.

[[Page 127 STAT. 820]]

                    (E) Standardization of forms used for routine 
                reporting required of cleared personnel (such as travel, 
                foreign contacts, and financial disclosures) and use of 
                continuous monitoring technology to access databases 
                containing such reportable information to independently 
                obtain and analyze reportable data and events.
                    (F) Establishment of an authoritative central 
                repository of personnel security information that is 
                accessible electronically at multiple levels of

                rapid access to information necessary for eligibility 
                determinations and reciprocal recognition thereof, 
                including the ability to monitor the status of an 
                individual and any events related to the continued 
                eligibility of such individual for employment or 
                clearance during intervals between investigations.
                    (G) Elimination or reduction of the scope of, or 
                alteration of the schedule for, periodic 
                reinvestigations of cleared personnel, when such action 
                is appropriate in light of the information provided by 
                continuous monitoring or evaluation technology.
                    (H) Electronic integration of personnel security 
                processes and information systems with insider threat 
                detection and monitoring systems, and pertinent law 
                enforcement, counterintelligence and intelligence 
                information, for threat detection and correlation,

                cleared individuals shall be subject to frequent 
                reinvestigations and random checks, such as the 
                personnel with the broadest access to classified 
                information or with access to the most sensitive 
                classified information, including information technology 
                specialists or other individuals with such broad access 
                commonly known as ``super users'';

                monitoring for all cleared individuals described in 
                paragraph (4)(D) is implemented in phases, such system 
                shall be implemented on a priority basis for the

                differences can be harmonized.
                    (B) The extent to which existing Federal 
                Investigative Standards are relevant, complete, and 
                sufficient for guiding agencies and individual 
                investigators as they conduct their security clearance 
                background investigations.
                    (C) The processes agencies have implemented to 
                ensure quality in the security clearance background 
                investigation process.
                    (D) The extent to which agencies have developed and

SEC. 913. SPACE ACQUISITION STRATEGY.

    (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) commercial satellite services, particularly 
        communications, are needed to satisfy Department of Defense 
        requirements;
            (2) the Department predominately uses one-year leases to 
        obtain commercial satellite services, which are often the most 
        expensive and least strategic method to acquire necessary 
        commercial satellite services; and
            (3) consistent with the required authorization and 
        appropriations, Congress encourages the Department to pursue a 
        variety of methods to reduce cost and meet the necessary 
        military requirements, including multi-year leases and 
        procurement of Government-owned payloads on commercial 
        satellites.

    (b) <<NOTE: Consultation.>>  Strategy Required.--The Under Secretary 
of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics, in consultation 
with the Chief Information Officer of the Department of Defense, shall 
establish a strategy to enable the multi-year procurement of commercial 
satellite services.

[[Page 127 STAT. 825]]

    (c) Basis.--The strategy required under subsection (b) shall include 
and be based on--
            (1) an analysis of financial or other benefits to acquiring 
        satellite services through multi-year acquisition approaches;
            (2) an analysis of the risks associated with such 
        acquisition approaches;
            (3) an identification of methods to address planning, 
        programming, budgeting, and execution challenges to such 
        approaches, including methods to address potential termination 
        liability or cancellation costs generally associated with multi-
        year contracts;
            (4) an identification of any changes needed in the 
        requirements development and approval processes of the 
        Department of Defense to facilitate effective and efficient 
        implementation of such strategy, including an identification of 
        any consolidation of requirements for such services across the 
        Department that may achieve increased buying power and 
        efficiency; and
            (5) an identification of any necessary changes to policies, 
        procedures, regulations, or statutes.

    (d) Briefings.--
            (1) <<NOTE: Deadline.>>  In general.--Not later than 90 days 
        after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Under Secretary

        Logistics, in consultation with the Chief Information Officer of 
        the Department of Defense, shall provide to the congressional 
        defense committees an interim briefing regarding the strategy 
        required under subsection (b).
SEC. 914. SPACE CONTROL MISSION REPORT.

        States and its allies;

[[Page 127 STAT. 866]]

                          NUCLEAR FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES.

    (a) Policy.--It is the policy of the United States to--
            (1) modernize or replace the triad of strategic nuclear 
        delivery systems;
            (2) proceed with a robust stockpile stewardship program;
            (3) maintain and modernize the nuclear weapons production 
        capabilities that will ensure the safety, security, reliability, 
        and performance of the nuclear forces of the United States at 
        the levels required by the New START Treaty; and
            (4) underpin deterrence by meeting the requirements for 
        hedging against possible international developments or technical 
        problems, in accordance with the policies of the United States.

    (b) Sense of Congress on Modernization of Nuclear Forces.--It is the 
sense of Congress that--
            (1) Congress is committed to providing the resources needed 
        to achieve the objectives stated in subsection (a) at a minimum 
        at the level set forth in the 10-year plan provided to Congress 
        on an annual basis pursuant to section 1043 of the National 
        Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112-
        81; 125 Stat. 1576), as amended;
            (2) Congress supports the modernization or replacement of 
        the triad of strategic nuclear delivery systems consisting of--
                    (A) a heavy bomber and air-launched cruise missile;
                    (B) an intercontinental ballistic missile; and
                    (C) a ballistic missile submarine and submarine-
                launched ballistic missile; and
            (3) the President and Congress should work together to meet 
        the objectives stated in subsection (a) in the most cost-
        efficient manner possible.

    (b) Sense of Congress on Long-Range Strike Bomber Aircraft.--It is 
the sense of Congress that--
            (1) advancements in air-to-air and surface-to-air weapons 
        systems by foreign powers will require increasingly 
        sophisticated long-range strike capabilities;

[[Page 127 STAT. 867]]

            (2) upgrading the existing bomber aircraft fleet of the 
        United States consisting of B-1B, B-2, and B-52 bomber aircraft 
        must remain a high budget priority in order to maintain the 
        combat effectiveness of such fleet; and
            (3) the Air Force should continue to prioritize development 
        and acquisition of the long-range strike bomber program.

Russian Federation on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation 
of Strategic Offensive Arms (commonly referred to as the ``New START 
Treaty''), signed in Prague on April 8, 2010, the following: ``The New 
START Treaty does not require, at any point during which it will be in 
force, the United States to provide to the Russian Federation telemetric 
information under Article IX of the New START Treaty, Part Seven of the 
Protocol, and the Annex on Telemetric Information to the Protocol for

                    (A) ``further limitations on the missile defense 
                capabilities of the United States are not in the 
                national security interest of the United States''; and
                    (B) ``[t]he New START Treaty and the April 7, 2010, 
                unilateral statement of the Russian Federation on 
                missile defense do not limit in any way, and shall not 
                be interpreted as limiting, activities that the United 
                States Government currently plans or that might be 
                required over the duration of the New START Treaty to 
                protect the United States pursuant to the National 
                Missile Defense Act of 1999, or to protect United States

                ballistic missile attack, including further planned 
                enhancements to the Ground-based Midcourse Defense 
                system and all phases of the Phased Adaptive Approach to 
                missile defense in Europe.'';
            (2) as stated in declaration (2) of the resolution of the 
        Senate giving the advice and consent of the Senate to the 
        ratification of the New START Treaty, ``the United States will 
        welcome steps by the Russian Federation also to adopt a 
        fundamentally defensive strategic posture that no longer views 
        robust strategic defensive capabilities as undermining the 
        overall strategic balance, and stands ready to cooperate with 
        the Russian Federation on strategic defensive capabilities, as 
        long as such cooperation is aimed at fostering and in no way 
        constrains the defensive capabilities of both sides'';
            (3) any missile defense cooperation with the Russian 
        Federation should not in any way limit United States' or NATO's 
        missile defense capabilities, and should be mutually beneficial 
        and reciprocal in nature;

        Federation with sensitive missile defense information that would 
        in any way compromise United States national security, including 
        ``hit-to-kill'' technology and telemetry data for missile 
        defense interceptors or target vehicles; and
            (5) the sovereignty of the United States and its ability to 
        unilaterally pursue its own missile defense program shall be 
        protected.

the Russian Federation.--

        authorized to be appropriated or otherwise made available for 
        fiscal year 2014 for the Department of Defense may be used to 
        provide the Russian Federation with sensitive missile defense 
        information that would in any way compromise United States 
        national security.
            (3) <<NOTE: Deadline. 22 USC 5922 note.>>  Congressional 
        notification.--If the Secretary of Defense intends to provide 
        the Russian Federation with any sensitive missile defense 
        information that the Secretary determines will not compromise 
        United States national security, the Secretary shall notify the 
        congressional defense committees of the Secretary's intent to 
        provide such information not less than 7 days prior to the 
        provision of such information, including an explanation of the
