    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled, <<NOTE: Carl Levin and 
Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
Year 2015.>> 
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    (a) Short Title.--This Act may be cited as the ``Carl Levin and 
Howard P. `Buck' McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
Year 2015''.
    (b) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1)(A) Senator Carl Levin of Michigan was elected a member 
        of the United States Senate on November 7, 1978, for a full term 
        beginning January 3, 1979. He has served continuously in the 
        Senate since that date, and was appointed as a member of the 
        Committee on Armed Services in January 1979. He has served on 
        the Committee on Armed Services since that date, a period of 
        nearly 36 years.
            (B) A graduate of Detroit Central High School, Senator Levin 
        went on to Swarthmore College, and graduated from Harvard Law 
        School in 1959, gaining admittance to the Michigan bar. He 
        served his State as assistant attorney general and general 
        counsel of the Michigan Civil Rights Commission from 1964-1967, 
        and later served his hometown of Detroit as a member of the 
        Detroit City Council from 1969-1973, and as the council's 
        president from 1974-1977.
            (C) Senator Levin first served as chairman of the Committee 
        on Armed Services of the United States Senate for a period of 
        the 107th Congress, and has remained chairman since the 110th 
        Congress began in 2007. He has exercised extraordinary 
        leadership as either the chairman or ranking minority member of 
        the committee since the start of the 105th Congress in 1997.
            (D) Each year, for the past 52 years, the Committee on Armed 
        Services has reliably passed an annual defense authorization 
        act, and this will be the 36th that Senator Levin has had a role 
        in. In his capacity as member, ranking member, and chairman, he 
        has been an advocate for a strong national defense, and has made 
        lasting contributions to the security of our Nation.
            (E) It is altogether fitting and proper that this Act, the 
        last annual authorization act for the national defense that 
        Senator Levin manages in and for the United States Senate

[[Page 128 STAT. 3293]]

        as chairman of the Committee on Armed Services, be named in his 
        honor, as provided in subsection (a).
            (2)(A) Representative Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon was elected 
        to the House of Representatives in 1992 to represent 
        California's 25th Congressional District.
            (B) Chairman McKeon was born in Los Angeles and grew up in 
        Tujunga CA. He served a two and a half year mission for the 
        Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and attended Brigham 
        Young University. Prior to his election to Congress, he was a 
        small business owner, and served both on the William S. Hart 
        Union High School District Board of Trustees and as the first 
        mayor of the City of Santa Clarita.
            (C) In the 111th Congress, Chairman McKeon was selected by 
        his peers as the Ranking Member of the House Armed Services 
        Committee and has served as Chairman since in the 112th and 
        113th Congresses. Previously Chairman McKeon had served as the 
        Chairman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
            (D) Chairman McKeon is a champion of a strong national 
        defense, the men and women of America's Armed Forces and their 
        families, and returning fiscal discipline to the Department of 
        Defense. His priority has been to ensure our troops deployed 
        around the world have the equipment, resources, authorities, 
        training and time they need to successfully complete their 
        missions and return home.
            (E) For 52 consecutive years, the House Armed Services 
        Committee, in a bipartisan, bicameral tradition, has passed and 
        enacted an annual defense authorization act. Chairman McKeon had 
        said it has been the privilege of his life to shepherd that 
        tradition under his tenure.
            (F) It is therefore fitting this Act, the last national 
        defense authorization act of his tenure, be named in Chairman 
        McKeon's honor, as provided in subsection (a).

    (c) References.--Any reference in this or any other Act to the

SEC. 143. REPORT ON STATUS OF AIR-LAUNCHED CRUISE MISSILE 
                        CAPABILITIES.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) The capability provided by the nuclear-capable, air-
        launched cruise missile is critical to maintaining a credible 
        and effective air-delivery leg of the nuclear triad, preserving

[[Page 128 STAT. 3321]]

        the ability to respond to geopolitical and technical surprise, 
        and reassuring allies of the United States through credible 
        extended deterrence.
            (2) In the fiscal year 2015 budget request of the Air Force, 
        the Secretary of the Air Force delayed development of the long-
        range standoff weapon, the follow-on for the air-launched cruise 
        missile, by three years.
            (3) The Secretary plans to sustain the current air-launched 
        cruise missile, known as the AGM-86, until approximately 2030, 
        with multiple service life-extension programs required to 
        preserve but not enhance the existing capabilities of the air-
        launched cruise missile.
            (4) The AGM-86 was initially developed in the 1970s and 
        deployed in the 1980s.
            (5) The average age of the inventory of air-launched cruise 
        missiles is more than 30 years old.
            (6) The operating environment, particularly the 
        sophistication of integrated air defenses, has evolved 
        substantially since the inception of the air-launched cruise 
        missile.
            (7) The AGM-86 is no longer in production and the inventory 
        of spare bodies for required annual testing continues to 
        diminish, posing serious challenges for long-term sustainment.

    (b) Report.--
            (1) In general.--Not later than 120 days after the date of 
        the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of the Air Force, in

                survivability of the air-launched cruise missile through 
                2030, including the impact of any degradation on the 
                ability of the United States Strategic Command to meet 
                deterrence requirements, including the number of targets 
                held at risk by the air-launched cruise missile or the 
                burdens placed on other legs of the nuclear triad.
                    (B) A description of age-related failure trends, an 
                assessment of potential age-related fleet-wide 
                reliability and supportability problems, and the 
                estimated costs for sustaining the air-launched cruise 
                missile.
                    (C) A detailed plan, including initial cost 
                estimates, for the development and deployment of the 
                follow-on system that will achieve initial operational 
                capability before 2030.
                    (D) An assessment of the feasibility and 
                advisability of alternative development strategies, 
                including initial cost estimates, that would achieve 
                full operational capability before 2030.
                    (E) An assessment of current testing requirements 
                and the availability of test bodies to sustain the air-
                launched cruise missile over the long term.

[[Page 128 STAT. 3322]]

                    (F) A description of the extent to which the 
                airframe and other related components can be completed 
                independent of the payload, as determined by the Nuclear 
                Weapons Council established by section 179 of title 10, 
                United States Code.
                    (G) A statement of the risks assumed by not fielding 
                an operational replacement for the existing air-launched 
                cruise missile by 2030.

        overall cost savings for patrons.
            (3) The feasibility of generating net revenue from pricing 
        and stock assortment changes.
            (4) The relationship of higher prices and reduced patron 
        savings to patron usage and accompanying sales, both on a

        determination to the congressional defense committees.

        was made after completion of a cost analysis conducted on the 
        basis of section 2334(e)(2) of this title, and the analysis 
        supports the determination.

        excess of the critical cost growth threshold pursuant to section

        Secretary anticipates such contract (or a contract for advance

        acquired under such contract have been delivered at or within 
        the most current estimates of the program acquisition unit cost 
        or procurement unit cost for such system to determine that 
        current estimates of such unit costs are realistic.
            ``(E) During the fiscal year in which such contract is to be 
        awarded, sufficient funds will be available to perform the 
        contract in such fiscal year, and the future-years defense 
        program for such fiscal year will include the funding required 
        to execute the program without cancellation.

        production at not less than minimum economic rates given the 
        existing tooling and facilities.

    ``(4) If for any fiscal year a multiyear contract to be entered into 
under this section is authorized by law for a particular procurement 
program and that authorization is subject to certain conditions 
established by law (including a condition as to cost savings to be 
achieved under the multiyear contract in comparison to specified other 
contracts) and if it appears (after negotiations with contractors) that 
such savings cannot be achieved, but that substantial savings could 
nevertheless be achieved through the use of a multiyear contract rather 
than specified other contracts, the President may submit to Congress a 
request for relief from the specified cost savings that must be achieved 
through multiyear contracting for that program. Any such request by the 
President shall include details about the request for a multiyear 
contract, including details about the negotiated contract terms and 
conditions.

item under a multiyear contract for the purchase of property only for 
procurement of a complete and usable end item.

year for advance procurement under a contract for the purchase of 
property only for the procurement of those long-lead items necessary in 
order to meet a planned delivery schedule for complete major end items 
that are programmed under the contract to be acquired with funds 
appropriated for a subsequent fiscal year (including an economic order 
quantity of such long-lead items when authorized by law).
    ``(6) The Secretary may make the certification under paragraph (3) 
notwithstanding the fact that one or more of the conditions of such 
certification are not met, if the Secretary determines that, due to 
exceptional circumstances, proceeding with a multiyear contract under 
this section is in the best interest of the Department

of Defense and the Secretary provides the basis for such determination 
with the certification.

certification under paragraph (3) or the determination under paragraph 
(6) to an official below the level of Under Secretary of Defense for 
Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics.''.

SEC. 1015. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING SECURITY IN THE WESTERN 
                          HEMISPHERE.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The stability and security of the Western Hemisphere has 
        a direct impact on the security interests of the United States.
            (2) Over the past decade, there has been a marked increase 
        in violence and instability in the region as a result of weak 
        governance and increasingly capable transnational criminal 
        organizations. These criminal organizations operate global, 
        multi-billion dollar networks that traffic narcotics, humans, 
        weapons, and bulk cash.
            (3) Conflict between the various transnational criminal 
        organizations for smuggling routes and territory has resulted in 
        skyrocketing violence. According to the United Nations Office on 
        Drugs and Crime, Honduras has the highest murder rate in the 
        world with 90 murders per 100,000 people.
            (4) United States Northern Command and United States 
        Southern Command are the lead combatant commands for Department 
        of Defense efforts to combat illicit trafficking in the Western 
        Hemisphere.
            (5) To combat these destabilizing threats, through a variety 
        of authorities, the Department of Defense advises, trains, 
        educates, and equips vetted troops in the region to enhance 
        their military and police forces, with an emphasis on human 
        rights and the rule of law.
            (6) As a result of decades of instability and violence, tens 
        of thousands of unaccompanied alien children and their families 
        have fled to the border between the United States and Mexico. In 
        fiscal year 2014, approximately 66,000 such children were 
        apprehended crossing into the United States from Mexico.

[[Page 128 STAT. 3486]]

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the Department of Defense should continue its efforts to 
        combat transnational criminal organizations in the Western 
        Hemisphere;
            (2) the Department of Defense should increase its maritime, 
        aerial and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance 
        capabilities in the region to more effectively support efforts 
        to reduce illicit trafficking into the United States; and
            (3) enhancing the capacity of partner nations in the region 
        to combat the threat posed by transnational criminal 
        organizations should be a cornerstone of the Department of 
        Defense's strategy in the region.

    Section 231(f) of title 10, United States Code, is amended by adding

        commissioned ship built or armed for naval combat or any naval 
        ship designed to provide support to combatant ships and other 
        naval operations. Such term does not include patrol coastal

        her final voyage on April 9, 1963, with a crew of 16 officers, 
        96 sailors, and 17 civilians.
            (3) The mix of that crew reflects the unity of the naval 
        submarine service, military and civilian, in the protection of 
        the United States.
            (4) At approximately 7:47 a.m. on April 10, 1963, while in 
        communication with the surface ship U.S.S. Skylark, and 
        approximately 220 miles off the coast of New England, U.S.S. 
        Thresher began her final descent.

[[Page 128 STAT. 3488]]

            (5) U.S.S. Thresher was declared lost with all hands on 
        April 10, 1963.
            (6) In response to the loss of U.S.S. Thresher, the United 
        States Navy instituted new regulations to ensure the health of 
        the submariners and the safety of the submarines of the United 
        States.
            (7) Those regulations led to the establishment of the 
        Submarine Safety and Quality Assurance program (SUBSAFE), now 
        one of the most comprehensive military safety programs in the 
        world.
            (8) SUBSAFE has kept the submariners of the United States 
        safe at sea ever since as the strongest, safest submarine force 
        in history.
            (9) Since the establishment of SUBSAFE, no SUBSAFE-certified 
        submarine has been lost at sea, which is a legacy owed to the 
        brave individuals who perished aboard U.S.S. Thresher.
            (10) From the loss of U.S.S. Thresher, there arose in the 
        institutions of higher education in the United States the ocean 
        engineering curricula that enables the preeminence of the United 
        States in submarine warfare.
            (11) The crew of U.S.S. Thresher demonstrated the ``last 
        full measure of devotion'' in service to the United States, and 
        this devotion characterizes the sacrifices of all submariners, 
        past and present.

    (b) Sense of Congress.--Congress--
            (1) recognizes the 51st anniversary of the sinking of U.S.S. 
        Thresher;
            (2) remembers with profound sorrow the loss of U.S.S. 
        Thresher and her gallant crew of sailors and civilians on April 
        10, 1963; and
            (3) expresses its deepest gratitude to all submariners on 
        ``eternal patrol'', who are forever bound together by dedicated 
        and honorable service to the United States of America.

                          CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) Compromises of classified information cause 
        indiscriminate and long-lasting damage to United States national 
        security and often have a direct impact on the safety of 
        warfighters.
            (2) In 2010, hundreds of thousands of classified documents 
        were illegally copied and disclosed across the Internet.
            (3) Classified information has been disclosed in numerous 
        public writings and manuscripts endangering current operations.
            (4) In 2013, nearly 1,700,000 files were downloaded from 
        United States Government information systems, threatening the 
        national security of the United States and placing the lives of 
        United States personnel at extreme risk. The majority of the 
        information compromised relates to the capabilities, operations, 
        tactics, techniques, and procedures of the Armed Forces of the 
        United States, and is the single greatest quantitative 
        compromise in the history of the United States.
            (5) The Department of Defense is taking steps to mitigate 
        the harm caused by these leaks.
            (6) Congress must be kept apprised of the progress of the 
        mitigation efforts to ensure the protection of the national 
        security of the United States.

    (b) Reports Required.--

        compromises of classified information. Such report shall include 
        each of the following:
                    (A) A description of any changes made to Department 
                of Defense policies or guidance relating to significant 
                compromises of classified information, including 
                regarding security clearances for employees of the 
                Department, information technology, and personnel 
                actions.
                    (B) An overview of the efforts made by any task 
                force responsible for the mitigation of such compromises 
                of classified information.
                    (C) A description of the resources of the Department 
                that have been dedicated to efforts relating to such 
                compromises.
                    (D) A description of the plan of the Secretary to 
                continue evaluating the damage caused by, and to 
                mitigate the damage from, such compromises.
                    (E) A general description and estimate of the 
                anticipated costs associated with mitigating such 
                compromises.

                          ARMY NATIONAL GUARD FORCE STRUCTURE 
                          CHANGES.

    (a) Briefing and Report.--
            (1) Briefing.--Not later than March 1, 2015, the Comptroller 
        General of the United States shall submit to the congressional 
        defense committees a written briefing on the assessment of the 
        Comptroller General of the Aviation Restructuring Initiative of 
        the Army and of any proposals submitted by the Chief of the 
        National Guard Bureau or the Cost Assessment and Program 
        Evaluation Office of the Department of Defense that could serve 
        as alternatives to the Army's proposal for adjusting the 
        structure and mix of its combat aviation forces among regular 
        Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard units.
            (2) Report.--Not later than 60 days after the submittal of 
        the briefing under paragraph (1), the Comptroller General shall 
        submit to the congressional defense committees a final report on 
        the assessment referred to in that paragraph.

    (b) Elements.--The briefing and report of the Comptroller General 
required by subsection (a) shall include, at a minimum, each of the 
following:
            (1) A comparison of the assumptions on strategy, current 
        demands, historical readiness rates, anticipated combat 
        requirements, and the constraints and limitations associated 
        with mobilization, utilization, and rotation policies underlying 
        the Aviation Restructuring Initiative and any alternatives 
        proposed by the Chief of the National Guard Bureau and the 
        Department of Defense Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation 
        Office.
            (2) An assessment of the models used to estimate future 
        costs and cost savings associated with each proposal for 
        allocating Army aviation platforms among the regular Army, Army 
        Reserve, and Army National Guard units.
            (3) A comparison of the military and civilian personnel 
        requirements for supporting combat aviation brigades under each 
        proposal, including a description of the anticipated 
        requirements and funding allocated for active Guard Reserve and 
        full-time military technicians supporting the Army National 
        Guard AH-64 ``Apache'' units.

    (c) Sense of Congress Regarding Additional Funding for the Army.--
Congress is concerned with the planned reductions and realignments the 
Army has proposed for the regular Army, the Army National Guard, and the 
Army Reserves in order to comply with the funding constraints under the 
Budget Control Act of 2011 (Public Law 112-25). Concerns are 
particularly associated with proposed reductions in end strength for all 
components that will result in additional reductions in the number of 
regular Army and National Guard brigade combat teams as well as 
reductions and realignments of combat aircraft within and between the 
regular Army and the Army National Guard. Sufficient funding

[[Page 128 STAT. 3501]]

should be provided to retain the force structure and sustain the 
readiness of as much Total Army combat capability as possible.

        continues to be to support the stability and sovereignty of 
        Afghanistan and to help Afghanistan ensure that its territory is 
        not used by al Qaeda, the Haqqani Network, or other violent 
        extremist groups to launch attacks against the United States or 
        its interests;
            (2) the presence of United States military forces in 
        Afghanistan after 2014 to train, advise, and assist the 
        Afghanistan National Security Forces (ANSF) and conduct 
        counterterrorism operations is a key step to maintaining the 
        significant gains achieved in Afghanistan and should be executed 
        consistent with the security conditions on the ground;
            (3) any drawdown of such United States military forces and 
        operations should be considered in relation to security 
        conditions on the ground in Afghanistan at the time of the 
        drawdown and the recommendations of senior United States 
        military commanders; and
            (4) NATO member countries and other members of the 
        international community should honor their commitments to 
        support Afghanistan at the Lisbon, Chicago, and Tokyo 
        conferences taking into account the mutual accountability 
        framework agreed by the Government of Afghanistan.

        National Security Forces (ANSF), including through the use of 
        not less than $25,000,000 as specified in section 1531(c) of the

                providing appropriate equipment, modifying facilities, 
                and ensuring literacy and gender awareness training for 
                female recruits and male counterparts; and

                          BY THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION WITH ITS 
                          OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE INF TREATY.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) It was the object and purpose of the INF Treaty to 
        eliminate the production or deployment of ground launched 
        ballistic and cruise missiles with a range of between 500 and 
        5,500 kilometers, which was accomplished in 1992.
            (2) The July 2014 Department of State annual report on 
        ``Adherence to and Compliance with Arms Control, 
        Nonproliferation, and Disarmament Agreements and Commitments'' 
        stated that ``The United States has determined that the Russian 
        Federation is in violation of its obligations under the INF 
        Treaty not to possess, produce, or flight-test a ground-launched 
        cruise missile (GLCM) with a range capability of 500km to 
        5,500km, or to possess or produce launchers of such missiles.''.
            (3) In a letter to the Senate Armed Services Committee dated 
        October 23, 2014, General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint 
        Chiefs of Staff, wrote ``these violations are a serious 
        challenge to the security of the United States and our allies. 
        These actions, particularly when placed in the broader context 
        of Russian regional aggression, must be met with a strategic 
        response.''.

[[Page 128 STAT. 3565]]

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) the Russian Federation's actions in violation of its 
        obligations under the INF Treaty adversely affect the national 
        security of the United States and its allies, including the 
        members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and 
        those in East Asia;
            (2) the Government of the Russian Federation is responsible 
        for this violation and also for returning to compliance with the 
        INF Treaty;
            (3) it is in the national security interests of the United 
        States and its allies for the INF Treaty to remain in effect and 
        for the Russian Federation to return to full and verifiable 
        compliance with all its obligations under the INF Treaty; and
            (4) as identified in section 1061 of the National Defense 
        Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014 (Public Law 113-66; 127 
        Stat. 865), the President should take appropriate actions to 
        resolve the issues relating to noncompliance by the Russian 
        Federation with its obligations under the INF Treaty.

                United States and its allies, including the North 
                Atlantic Treaty Organization, and those in East Asia.
                    (B) A description of the President's plan to resolve 
                issues related to Russian noncompliance, including--
                          (i) actions that have been taken, and what

                    (C) An assessment of whether Russian noncompliance 
                threatens the viability of the INF Treaty, whether such

            (1) At the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit

        to aim to move toward the NATO guideline to spend a minimum of 
        two percent of each member's Gross Domestic Product on defense 
        within a decade.
            (2) At the Wales summit, NATO members declared that

        meeting the capability priorities of the Alliance.

    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--

        they seek to modernize their defense capabilities to encourage 
        such members to procure defense systems, including air and 
        missile defense systems, that are interoperable with NATO 
        defense systems and help fill critical NATO shortfalls;
            (2) such United States efforts to facilitate the 
        modernization of defense capabilities are particularly important 
        to help address the security requirements of the newer members 
        of NATO in Eastern Europe; and
            (3) the United States stands ready to assist other NATO 
        members to modernize their defense capabilities and restructure 
        their armed forces consistent with the objectives set out at the 
        NATO summit in Wales in September 2014.
