CHAPTER 1

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

PUBLIC LAW 480 TITLE II GRANTS

2007 appropriation to date $1,214,711,000

Committee recommendation 475,000,000

The Committee recommends $475,000,000 for Public Law 480 Title II Grants for humanitarian food assistance in Afghanistan, Sudan, Chad, other African nations, and for additional unanticipated emergency needs.

The Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 required the establishment of a micronutrient fortification program relating to the utilization of foods for humanitarian assistance programs such as title II of Public Law 480. The Committee is concerned that no such program has been established and strongly encourages the Secretary of Agriculture to work with the Administrator of USAID to proceed with establishing contract specifications, testing protocols, and other actions necessary to ensure that food assistance is properly targeted to various populations in the most efficient and effective manner possible.

GENERAL PROVISION--THIS CHAPTER

SEC. 1101. The Committee recommends a general provision to make available $82,000,000 for replenishment of the Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust. When combined with existing cash and commodities, this amount should be sufficient to meet approximately one-half of the Trust's authorized level.

The Committee recommends $500,000 for the Inspector General.

The OIG will issue another report on the FBI's use of national security letters during 2006, on or about December 31, 2007. The OIG made 10 recommendations to correct the problems that led to the misuse of national security letters in its March 9, 2007, report. As a result, the Committee has provided an additional $500,000 to the OIG to continue auditing and oversight of this matter to ensure the FBI implements the recommendations of the OIG contained in the OIG's reports. The Committee directs the OIG to report to the Committees on Appropriations, the Committees on the Judiciary and the Select Committees on Intelligence on a semi-annual basis on the FBI's progress in implementing the recommendations contained in the OIG's reports.

The Committee notes that on January 10, 2007, the President signed National Security Presidential Directive 46 and Homeland Security Presidential 15 Annex II which transferred authority to conduct render safe activities from the Department of Defense to the FBI. With the increased operational needs and new counterterrorism responsibilities, the Committee has provided funding for the following purposes: $218,032,000 for counterterrorism operations and investigations in Iraq and Afghanistan, $110,603,000 for equipment, training and supplies for render safe activities and $9,625,000 to counter improvised explosive devices [IEDs].

Finally, the Committee notes the recent report by the Department of Justice's Office of Inspector General [OIG] regarding the FBI's use of national security letters.

OVERVIEW

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

The Department of Defense requested $91,532,975,000 in additional emergency supplemental funding to continue the global war on terror and operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. This request, together with the $70,000,000,000 already made available this fiscal year for the global war on terror, brings the emergency costs of war in fiscal year 2007 to $161,532,975,000. The Committee has carefully reviewed the budget request and recommends $92,032,793,000 for operations, personnel costs, and equipment reconstitution related to the global war on terror.

This funding will ensure that our forces engaged in operations overseas have the best force protection equipment available as well as the most effective weaponry, communications gear, munitions, and other essential items. The Committee is pleased to recommend funds to upgrade equipment for home station training and begin restoring pre-positioned stocks. The Committee recommendation addresses shortfalls in the Guard and Reserve by providing funds to re-supply and re-equip these critical units. Support for the Iraqi and Afghan security forces is funded enabling those nations to continue stepping up their roles in building safety and security. Finally, this recommendation provides funds to ensure that our wounded warriors receive the medical care and services they need upon return from theater. The Committee believes that taking care of our military members and their families is a moral responsibility and has fully funded programs to meet those needs.

The Committee remains concerned that the Department continues to rely on supplemental appropriations 5 1/2 years after operations began in Afghanistan. In response to congressional direction, the Department of Defense [DOD] submitted the fiscal year 2008 emergency supplemental request along with the fiscal year 2008 DOD budget. This submission requesting funds to finance the full year of operations is a welcome step in providing more complete information to Congress on prospective war and reset costs. The Committee urges the Department to return to regular order budgeting and to reflect ongoing costs in the baseline budget submission.

The Committee is pleased with the improvements the Department has made in providing detailed justification materials to support the fiscal year 2007 supplemental request. For the most part, the exhibits were complete and accurate enabling a thorough review by the Committee. The Committee appreciates the extra effort made by the Department staff to provide comprehensive information and will work with the Department to ensure that these materials fully meet the Committee's future requirements.

REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

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

Additionally, the Committee directs that the reporting requirements of section 9010 of Public Law 109-676, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2007, regarding military operations and stability in Iraq shall apply to the funds appropriated in this act.

MILITARY PERSONNEL

The Committee recommends $13,435,445,000 for pay, allowances, and other personnel costs for Active, Reserve, and Guard troops activated for duty in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other operations in support of the global war on terror. This recommendation includes funding for subsistence, permanent change of station travel, and special pays, including Imminent Danger Pay, Family Separation Allowance, and Hardship Duty Pay.

The recommendation also fully funds the supplemental request for recruiting and retention incentives. The Committee is aware of the challenges the services face in meeting the recruiting and retention goals necessary to sustain their authorized end strengths and supports the additional resources requested to achieve those goals.

Basic Allowance for Housing- The Committee includes an additional $1,085,821,000 for Basic Allowance for Housing in order to fully fund requirements identified by the services.

The following table provides details of recommendation for the military personnel accounts:

OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE

The Committee recommends $48,784,490,000 for the operation and maintenance accounts. These funds are available to fund military operations by the services and Special Operations Forces for incremental pre-deployment training and support, transportation to and from theater, operating tempo in theater, sustainment of equipment, and the full range of logistics and communications and intelligence assets support. The operation and maintenance accounts also include funding for repair activities which involve the necessary depot and intermediate maintenance required to restore equipment returning from Iraq and Afghanistan to pre-deployment conditions. Finally, the majority of the costs to `surge' combat forces to Iraq and the CENTCOM area of responsibility are operation and maintenance costs and include funding for supplies, fuel, maintenance, spare parts, contractor support and transportation for units extending their time in-country and for the additional units deploying to the region.

The following table provides details of the recommendation for the operation and maintenance accounts:

Base Operations Program Growth Reduction- Between fiscal year 2006 and fiscal year 2007, the amount requested for Base Operations has increased by $544,000,000 (almost 37 percent). The Committee believes this increase is excessive and recommends a reduction of $200,000,000. This leaves a 20 percent increase from fiscal year 2006 and allows for modest growth caused by additional requirements and some one time costs.

Airlift Operations Program Growth Reduction- Operating Support Costs associated with this budget line item funds the reconstitution of tools and equipment at mobility enroute locations. The Air Force spent $27,000,000 on these costs in fiscal year 2006 and received $13,000,000 for this program in title IX of the Department of Defense Appropriations Act of 2007. The fiscal year 2007 supplemental requests an additional $317,000,000, bringing the total fiscal year 2007 request to over 12 times the amount that was executed in fiscal year 2006. Therefore, the Committee is recommending a reduction of $150,000,000 which still allows program growth for over six times the amount executed in fiscal year 2006.

OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, DEFENSE-WIDE

2007 appropriation to date $22,810,148,000
2007 supplemental estimate 3,279,307,000
Committee recommendation 2,790,669,000

The Committee recommends $2,790,669,000 for Operation and Maintenance, Defense-wide. The recommendation is $488,638,000 below the estimate.

Coalition Support and Related Programs- The Defense Department has requested $950,000,000 for programs related to supporting coalition efforts in the war on terror. The Committee is recommending $500,000,000 for this purpose. Included in the request is $350,000,000 for the Global Lift and Sustain and Global Train and Equip programs. The Department has provided insufficient justification to warrant funding these programs. The Committee recommends denying the requested funding, and notes that authorities exist for the Defense Department to reprogram funds into this area if it can explain the specific use of the funding. In addition, the Committee is recommending a reduction of $100,000,000 from coalition support based on low obligation rates.

Improvised explosive devices continue to be a critical threat to the safety of the United States and coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. The use of these relatively inexpensive weapons has grown, as has the technical sophistication of the terrorists using them. To provide adequate funding and management flexibility to the Department in developing and fielding the necessary tactics, equipment and training to defeat these weapons, the Committee provides $2,432,800,000, as requested, in the `Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Fund.' The funds may only be used for activities that support the IED defeat objective. Therefore, the Committee directs the Department to continue to submit a report not later than 30 days after the end of each fiscal quarter to the congressional defense committees providing assessments of the evolving threats, individual service requirements to counter the threats, and details on the commitments, obligations and expenditures of this Fund.

The Committee is concerned that the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization [JIEDDO] is operating under a broad directive from the Deputy Secretary of Defense that does not provide enough clarity and definition for its roles and authority within the Department of Defense. The Committee understands that a strategic plan has been under development for quite some time. To date, however, this plan has only been coordinated with the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Committee feels strongly that this plan should also be coordinated with the services and the intelligence community. The Committee believes this strategic plan should include a comprehensive mission statement, definitions for potential counter IED solutions that could be eligible for funding, a delineation of JIEDDO's role in training and intelligence support, and the long term and short term goals, objectives, and measures of success for all aspects of the organization. The Department of Defense has stated that the strategic plan will be finalized by August 2007. Therefore, the Committee directs the Department of Defense to finalize the JIEDDO strategic plan no later than August 17, 2007, and submit this plan to the congressional defense committees.

The Committee is also concerned over the exponential growth of JIEDDO. The Committee has limited visibility into current staffing and future staffing requirements and is concerned that certain contractor support is not being accounted for properly by JIEDDO. Therefore, the Committee directs JIEDDO to provide a report to the congressional defense committees on current staffing levels and future staffing requirements, broken down by function, contractor, civilian, military, and detail from other agencies, no later than May 18, 2007. This report should also include all contractor support that is provided through various contracts. The Committee further directs JIEDDO to update this report after the strategic plan is finalized and after any future manning document changes have been made.

PROCUREMENT

The Committee recommends $24,507,633,000 for procurement. This funds the services' most urgent procurement needs, including improvements for force protection equipment, replacement, repair and reset of war-torn equipment, essential equipment and munitions.

PROCUREMENT OVERVIEW

The Department's reliance on supplemental appropriations to procure equipment has grown significantly. In fiscal year 2006, the Congress provided supplemental funding of $23,009,245,000 for equipment based on use in Iraq and Afghanistan; this level was approximately 23 percent of the total procurement funding for that year. In fiscal year 2007, the projected supplemental funding has increased to $44,642,276,000. The Department now looks to supplemental funding for 35 percent of the total procurement budget.

Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle [MRAP]- The mine resistant ambush protected vehicle [MRAP] is an armored combat vehicle capable of providing superior protection to our warfighters from improvised explosive devices [IEDs] and other threats in theater. The supplemental request includes $1,831,000,000 to procure and outfit MRAPs for the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and the Special Operations Command. The Committee has fully funded this request. Combined with funds previously appropriated, the Committee has now provided $2,536,000,000 for MRAPs, funding approximately 2,500 vehicles, subsystems and the associated sustainment costs. Based on data provided to the Committee, the Committee understands that funds provided to date fully fund maximum available production capacity through the end of the fiscal year and well into the first quarter of fiscal year 2008. The Committee is aware of a requirement for additional MRAPs that can be executed in fiscal year 2008. Should additional production capability become available prior to the beginning of the fiscal year, the Committee would entertain an above threshold reprogramming to accelerate production.

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS

The Committee is recommending several adjustments for programs which it does not believe should be funded in this emergency supplemental. The Committee urges the Department to follow standard budgeting guidelines in formulating future requests and directs it to eliminate the practice of using emergency supplementals to augment baseline budget needs. Additional information on the specific recommendations is included below and the tables to follow.

Premature Funding Requests- The Committee is recommending reductions in several procurement programs because funding has been requested ahead of the Department's ability to use it. For example, production funding was requested for several items that are still in development or testing. Funds were also requested for programs where additional funds are not required until fiscal year 2008 to maintain stable production rates. These adjustments are reflected in the tables below with the notation `premature funding request'.

Unexecutable Requests- The Committee recommends reducing funding that is unexecutable this year due to a variety of factors such as problems in the production line or an inability to award contracts in fiscal year 2007. In addition, reductions are recommended in programs where the quantity requested exceeds the standard 12 month delivery period. Adjustments to programs in this category are displayed in the tables below as `unexecutable requests'.

Baseline Budget Requirements- The Committee believes that several items which should be properly requested in the baseline budget have been included in this emergency supplemental request. As such, the Committee is recommending reductions in several programs that are either unrelated to the war on terror, or reflect other routine, often fact of life, costs that cannot be justified as emergency. The tables below list adjustments as `baseline budget requirements' to denote this category.

The following table provides details of the recommendation for the procurement accounts:

Naval Expeditionary Combat Command- The supplemental request includes a total of $908,400,000 for the Naval Expeditionary Combat Command. Although the Committee recommends full funding of this request, the Committee is concerned that there does not yet appear to be a stable and transparent investment plan for equipping and recapitalizing NECC forces.

The Committee therefore directs the Secretary of the Navy to submit a report to the congressional defense committees no later than June 15, 2007, which sets forth the requirements for recapitalizing each of the NECC forces, the requirements for equipping new and planned NECC forces, and a description of how those requirements will be addressed by the fiscal year 2008 budget submission and future budget requests.

PROCUREMENT, MARINE CORPS

2007 appropriation to date $5,792,840,000

RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION

The Committee recommends $1,190,461,000 for research, development, test and evaluation. The recommendation is $257,275,000 below the estimate.

The Committee recommendation provides funds to support force protection, improvements and enhancements for equipment being used in support of the global war on terror and operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and classified activities. The Committee recommends funding for initiatives that will yield near-term benefits to the warfighter and result in the rapid fielding of technologies into theater; however, the Committee is disappointed that the Department has also requested funding for longer-term development projects that will not be deployed for years to come. The Committee has denied funding for those projects and urges the Department to seek baseline funding for these initiatives.

The following table provides details of the recommendation for the research, development, test and evaluation accounts:

Military Health Care Budget- The Committee is deeply concerned that the Department of Defense continues to base its budget requests for military healthcare on the private sector practices. This approach does not properly consider the unique nature of the military healthcare system. Moreover, it ignores the current environment our military is serving and has been detrimental to the quality and availability of care for our service members and their families. Our military healthcare system must be properly resourced to address necessary requirements. Beginning in fiscal year 2006, the Department of Defense mandated savings in the military treatment facilities by instituting an `efficiency wedge'. The services were not given guidance on implementing these cuts, but were required to find savings. These decreases place enormous pressure on an already strained budget for military health care, delay necessary sustainment and restoration projects, critical hiring, and procurement requirements. Not only do we need to sustain our military healthcare system with the proper resources, but we also expect our military healthcare to advance with modern medicine. This requires investment in our healthcare. The Department is headed in the opposite direction. To alleviate this pressure in fiscal year 2007, the Committee recommends a total of $500,000,000 in operations and maintenance and procurement funding to address the critical needs of the services. The Committee directs each Service to provide a report to the Committee on the use of these funds, no later than June 29, 2007. The Committee is also concerned over the potential impact of future cuts and urges the Department to review its fiscal year 2008 budget request for the Defense Health Program and submit necessary changes to the Congress to properly resource our military healthcare system.

As part of the President's fiscal year 2007 budget request, the Department of Defense proposed increases in fees for Tricare beneficiaries. The fiscal year 2007 budget was based on the assumption that these proposals would be approved by the Congress, which ultimately left a shortfall in excess of $740,000,000. To address the immediate shortfalls from this decrease in fiscal year 2007, the Committee has included an additional $742,000,000. The Committee understands that the Department again plans to pursue legislative changes in fiscal year 2008. The Committee strongly encourages the Department of Defense to review the upcoming recommendations from the Task Force on the Future of our Military Health Care before proceeding.

Traumatic Brain Injury [TBI].--The Committee directs the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs to submit a report to the congressional defense committees regarding the extent of treatment of and outreach toward patients with traumatic brain injury, through military and VA hospitals, and outpatient clinics, and their families within 120 days after enactment of this act, describing the Department's diagnosis and screening processes for TBI; describing the communication procedures and policies for family members of TBI patients; providing an accounting of the number of service members suffering from TBI currently in the DOD health care system; providing an accounting of how many TBI patients have been discharged, separated, or retired from the DOD; and providing an accounting of funds budgeted and expended for these efforts.

2007 appropriation to date $215,167,000
2007 supplemental estimate 2,538,000
Committee recommendation ...........................

The Committee is not providing $2,538,000 to the Treasury Department as requested by the President to be used for funding the Iraq Threat Finance Cell and the Treasury's Deputy Attache in Baghdad. Funding to meet this request, including $2,050,000 for the Iraq Threat Finance Cell and $488,000 for the Deputy Attache in Baghdad, was provided under section 21048 of H.J. Res. 20, Public Law 110-5. The funds for the Deputy Attache in Baghdad are part of the funds provided to expand the overseas presence of the Department of the Treasury. Because these funds have already been made available, no additional funds are provided for these activities in this bill.

CHAPTER 5

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

OFFICE OF THE UNDER SECRETARY FOR MANAGEMENT

The Committee is concerned that the management and administrative challenges facing the Department will increase unless a stronger focus is placed on hiring, training, and maintaining career leaders. The combined factors of a large number of political appointees and contractors filling government positions, along with high Senior Executive Service [SES] vacancy rates is impeding the Department's ability to meet current and future challenges. In particular, the Committee is concerned that the Department and its components will not be able to function effectively when the change in administration occurs in 2009.

Accordingly, the Committee directs the Under Secretary for Management to provide a report identifying: (1) a listing, by office and component, of all SES positions vacant and filled, including career, non-career and political; (2) the total number of DHS contractors by office and component, including the average cost of a DHS contractor, and the number of contractors filling inherently governmental positions; (3) the total number of DHS political appointees by office and component; and (4) a listing, by office and component, of all current vacancies and projected retirements over the next 2 years. The report shall also include the following: (1) progress made in filling senior level vacancies as well as remaining challenges; (2) an assessment of the Department's allocation between political, career, and non-career SES positions; (3) an assessment of the appropriateness of the overall number of SES allocations for DHS given its size and broad mission objectives; (4) an assessment of the adequacy of career Senior Executive Service and other career development programs; (5) gaps in the Department's career senior leadership structure, including risks associated with reliance on political and contract employees versus career staff; and (6) a plan to address necessary changes, including dates for key milestones and deliverables. The Under Secretary shall submit this report to the Committees on Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives no later than July 20, 2007. The Committee also directs the Government Accountability Office to assess strengths and weaknesses of the report no later than 90 days after the Department submits the report.

OFFICE OF THE CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICER

The Chief Information Officer is directed to submit to the Committees on Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives by April 30, 2007, a report on the full costs to transition information to the Department of Homeland Security's primary data center. This report is to include: a schedule, by departmental component for data transition; costs, by component for each fiscal year required to complete the transition; identification, by component of items associated with the transition required to be procured and related procurement schedule; and identification of any transition costs, by component, provided in fiscal year 2007 or requested in the fiscal year 2008 President's budget.

UNITED STATES CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION

SALARIES AND EXPENSES

2007 appropriation to date $5,562,186,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 140,000,000

The Committee recommends an additional $140,000,000 for salaries and expenses. Of this amount, $100,000,000 is to enhance the secure freight initiative and to begin implementation of the SAFE Port Act (Public Law 109-347) requirements to purchase additional non-intrusive inspection equipment, integrate equipment with radiation portal monitors at northern border ports of entry, enhance targeting of cargo containers, and address the overseas and domestic port staffing requirements. The Committee anticipates that no fewer than 200 additional positions will be hired with these funds.

The Committee also provides $40,000,000: to address United States Customs and Border Protection [CBP] officer staffing shortfalls at northern border ports of entry; for screening of passengers and containers for admissibility and threat and to facilitate trade; hiring of pilots and marine officers for the northern border; procurement of additional vehicles; addressing CBP officer workstation and software deficiencies; and other necessary activities to `harden' CBP-owned ports of entry.

The Committee directs CBP to submit an expenditure plan and a staffing plan for these additional funds to the Committees on Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives no later than 30 days after enactment of this act and prior to the obligation of the funds.

AIR AND MARINE INTERDICTION, OPERATIONS, MAINTENANCE, AND PROCUREMENT

2007 appropriation to date $602,187,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 75,000,000

The Committee recommends an additional $75,000,000 for air and marine interdiction, operations, maintenance, and procurement. Included in this amount are funds to establish the final northern border air wing, as well as to procure additional fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aircraft systems, marine and riverine vessels, and enhanced radar coverage to meet existing shortfalls along the United States-Canada border. The Committee directs CBP to submit an expenditure plan for the procurement and placement of this equipment to the Committees on Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives no later than 30 days after the enactment of this act and prior to the obligation of these funds.

IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENT

SALARIES AND EXPENSES

2007 appropriation to date $3,887,000,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 20,000,000

The Committee recommends an additional $20,000,000 for salaries and expenses. Of this amount, $10,000,000 is provided for the Human Smuggling and Trafficking Center to better coordinate efforts within the Department of Homeland Security and between the Department and other Federal agencies to stem the flow of, and trafficking in, illegal aliens (as described in S. 4, the Improving America's Security Act of 2007).

An additional $10,000,000 is provided to create a security advisory opinion [SAO] review unit within the Visa Security Program [VSP]. Authorized under section 428 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (Public Law 107-296), the VSP is designed to prevent potentially dangerous individuals from entering the United States by participating in the visa screening process at a U.S. Embassy or consulate. These funds are provided to stand up the SAO unit, provide agents to evaluate SAO requests, and to ensure that the VSP fully participates in the SAO process to provide the advice and intelligence required by the U.S. Department of State in making determinations regarding visa issuance. The unit will be placed in VSP headquarters since the majority of SAO requests are processed in the United States.

TRANSPORTATION SECURITY ADMINISTRATION

AVIATION SECURITY

2007 appropriation to date $4,731,814,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 660,000,000

The Committee recommends an additional $660,000,000 for aviation security. Of this amount, $600,000,000 is for the purchase and installation of explosives detection systems [EDS] to address a significant need for EDS technology at airports nationwide. A recent independent baggage screening study estimated that over $3,600,000,000 is necessary for optimal screening solutions at airports nationwide. According to the Transportation Security Administration [TSA] and independent studies, increased investment in EDS in-line systems results in greater security by reducing the need for less effective and more time consuming screening solutions. The Committee directs TSA to utilize these funds consistent with optimal screening solutions prioritized in its strategic plan for electronic baggage screening. TSA shall submit a revised fiscal year 2007 EDS expenditure plan no later than 90 days after the enactment of this act.

As part of the recommended amount, $60,000,000 is provided to strengthen air cargo security. To establish a more robust enforcement and compliance regime, funding shall be used to hire no fewer than 300 additional air cargo inspectors. TSA shall deploy inspectors to airports that handle the highest volume of air cargo and increase the number of strike team inspections at those airports. Funding shall be used to expand the National Explosives Detection Canine Program by no fewer than 100 teams. TSA may utilize a portion of these funds for proprietary canine teams led by TSA personnel, where appropriate. The Committee also encourages TSA to pursue canine screening methods being utilized internationally which focus on air samples taken from air cargo for explosives detection. Finally, funds shall be used to complete vulnerability assessments described in TSA's recent report on air cargo security and for equipment, technology, and other methods to screen air cargo.

The August 2006 plot to blow up commercial airliners over the Atlantic Ocean proved that new technologies are necessary to detect threats such as liquid explosives at airport checkpoints. The Committee supports funding for emerging checkpoint technologies, but is concerned with current high unobligated balances for the program. Based on a recent report provided to the Committee, TSA had nearly $192,000,000 in unobligated authority as of January 31, 2007. The Committee is disappointed that TSA failed to meet a January 23, 2007, deadline to submit a strategic plan for deployment of checkpoint technologies. The Committee directs TSA to submit this plan expeditiously so that the Committee can make informed budgetary decisions with regard to checkpoint technologies.

FEDERAL AIR MARSHALS

2007 appropriation to date $714,294,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 15,000,000

The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for the Federal air marshals to address needs brought about by the threat level for the aviation sector, which has been at `orange' or `high' since August 2006.

PREPAREDNESS

MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION

2007 appropriation to date˙ $30,572,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 18,000,000

The Committee recommends $18,000,000 for the Office of the Chief Medical Officer. Of this amount, $4,000,000 is to support development of end-to-end base plans for managing attacks with weapons of mass destruction, managing biodefense activities and the other activities of this Office. The remaining recommended amount of $14,000,000 is for a post nuclear event response assessment to expeditiously model the effects of a 0.1, 1.0 and 10 kiloton nuclear bomb for each tier one Urban Area Security Initiative [UASI] cities; assess the level of current response and recovery planning of all levels of government; the adequacy of public shelter facilities and preplanned guidance to the public; document appropriate practices for responding to such an event; assess if affected infrastructure would be sufficient to support the proposed response; ensure coordination with the Department, State and local governments, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for delivery of prepackaged announcements with major radio and television outlets; ensure consistent and sufficient information is available to the public, medical and first responders on appropriate protective actions to prepare for and respond to a nuclear explosion. The Department of Homeland Security shall also enter into an agreement with the National Academy of Science [NAS] to provide a report on the current state of nuclear preparedness of the tier one UASI cities. NAS shall evaluate the Department's estimates of the effects of a nuclear attack and the current level of preparation in tier one UASI cities; and shall report on available healthcare capacity to treat the affected population, treatments available for pertinent radiation illnesses, efficacy of medical countermeasures, the likely capability of the Federal, State, and local authorities to deliver available medical countermeasures in a timely enough way to be effective, and the overall expected benefit of available countermeasures and those in the development pipeline. NAS shall also assess the availability, quality and benefit of public and medical education on reducing the illness and death associated with a nuclear attack.

INFRASTRUCTURE PROTECTION AND INFORMATION SECURITY

2007 appropriation to date˙ $547,633,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 18,000,000

The Committee recommends $18,000,000 for ensuring that chemical facilities complete and submit vulnerability assessments; for hiring and training of inspectors and other staff; and for other activities to ensure the enforcement of regulations regarding chemical site security.

FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY

ADMINISTRATIVE AND REGIONAL OPERATIONS

2007 appropriation to date $232,760,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 20,000,000

To facilitate prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery consistent with title VI of Public Law 109-295, the Committee provides $20,000,000. The Department shall submit an expenditure plan, within 45 days of enactment of this act for approval by the Committees on Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives, outlining spending for regional strike teams; financial systems to support the reorganization and disaster management; and the Law Enforcement Liaison Office, the Disability Coordinator Office and the National Advisory Council.

STATE AND LOCAL PROGRAMS

2007 appropriation to date $2,531,000,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 850,000,000

Pursuant to the SAFE Port Act (Public Law 109-347), the Committee recommends an increase of $190,000,000 for port security grants to address known risks. In 2003, the Coast Guard estimated that $5,400,000,000 would be needed through 2012 for facility security costs at our ports. With the amount of funds currently provided, major projects that provide needed security for ports are not currently being completed due to lack of funding.

The Committee includes an increase of $625,000,000 for rail and transit security to address known risks. Attacks in London, Madrid, Moscow, Tokyo, and most recently in Mumbai, India demonstrate the need to address security gaps in the rail and transit modes of transportation. Five times as many passengers travel by rail and transit than by air.

The Committee is concerned that the Department has failed to promote regional planning for catastrophic events. The Committee recommends $35,000,000 for grants and technical assistance to tier one urban area security initiative [UASI] cities and other participating governments, in conjunction with the appropriate Federal Emergency Management Agency regional offices, for the purpose of developing regional catastrophic event plans and preparedness.

Regional grants and technical assistance to high risk urban areas for catastrophic event planning and preparedness shall include logistics, preparedness, response (including mass evacuation and shelter-in-place), and recovery for each urban area's risks. In addition, this effort shall ensure that public and business education and outreach is completed to promote preparedness. This funding shall be spent in accordance with, but not limited to, Homeland Security Presidential Directive-8, the interim National Preparedness Goal (or any succeeding document), and the National Incident Management System. The Department shall report to Congress no later than January 15, 2008 regarding the results of this effort.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PERFORMANCE GRANTS

2007 appropriation to date $200,000,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 100,000,000

The Committee recommends an additional $100,000,000 for Emergency Management Performance Grants to assist State and local governments in updating emergency plans. The Department's report, entitled `Nationwide Plan Review', demonstrates a clear need to update State and local emergency plans. According to the Department, 61 percent of States and 69 percent of urban areas do not have adequate plans to respond to a catastrophic event. These funds are provided to update State and local plans.

UNITED STATES CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES

2007 appropriation to date $181,990,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 30,000,000

The Committee recommends an additional $30,000,000 for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services [USCIS]. The Committee recognizes that USCIS has made substantial progress over the last several years to successfully address the backlog of applications and petitions within its control. However, there continues to be a backlog of applications and petitions for which the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI] has not completed the required security checks. The Committee understands there are approximately 170,000 of these cases, with some of them pending for several years.

The Committee finds this situation unacceptable and has provided funding to address this issue. While the Committee continues to expect USCIS to be a fee-funded agency, historically the Committee has provided appropriated funding to address specific backlogs when necessary. The Committee believes given the seriousness of the backlog of security checks, it is appropriate to provide appropriated funding in this narrow instance.

The Committee has also restricted the ability of USCIS to obligate this funding until the Secretary of Homeland Security, jointly with the United States Attorney General, provides a specific plan to the Committees on Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives that describes how this issue will be addressed comprehensively. The Committee directs the report to outline how the funding will be used, and how USCIS and the FBI will use existing funding to supplement the amount provided in this act in order to eliminate the backlogs of security checks. Further, the Committee expects this plan will describe the existing business processes for security checks, the reforms made, the information sharing protocols employed, and the total level of resources used to address the backlog.

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, ACQUISITION, AND OPERATIONS

2007 appropriation to date $838,109,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 15,000,000

The Committee recommends an additional $15,000,000 for research into improved technologies to protect aircraft from explosives and other harmful materials within air cargo. These technologies may include explosives detection systems for bulk cargo and strengthening cargo containment systems to improve resistance to explosions.

DOMESTIC NUCLEAR DETECTION OFFICE

RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND OPERATIONS

2007 appropriation to date $272,500,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 39,000,000

The Committee recommends an additional $39,000,000 for non-container, rail, aviation, and intermodal radiation detection activities. Of this amount, $5,000,000 is for an intermodal test center to enhance detection at links between seaports and railroads; $8,000,000 is to accelerate development and deployment of detection systems at international rail border crossings; and $26,000,000 is for deployment of `backpack' screening to 49 key airports of entry to screen general aviation aircraft, development of a mobile detection system, analysis of alternatives for air cargo scanning, completion of pilot deployments at two airports, completion of surveys at five airports for fiscal year 2008 pilots; and pilot test radiation portal monitors at five international airports to detect radioactive materials carried by passengers on their persons and carry-on baggage.

GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

SEC. 1501. The Committee includes a provision preventing the use of funds available to the Department of Homeland Security in fiscal year 2007 to carry out section 872 of Public Law 107-296. Section 872 provides the Secretary of Homeland Security with authority to reorganize functions and organizational units of the Department without congressional approval. Since the creation of the Department of Homeland Security in March 2003, the Secretary has exercised section 872 authority nine times.

SEC. 1502. The Committee includes a provision to amend section 550 of the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2007 (6 U.S.C. 121 note).

CHAPTER 6

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

MILITARY CONSTRUCTION

Iraq- The Committee has carefully reviewed the President's request for emergency military construction funds to support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Committee remains concerned about the sustained level of military construction activities in Iraq more than 4 years after the onset of the war, particularly in light of the fact that the Committee has expressly rejected the establishment of permanent U.S. military bases in Iraq.

The Committee understands that the Department plans to consolidate U.S. forces in Iraq into a total of eight bases--four contingency operating locations and four convoy centers. It is the intent of the Committee that the military construction funds provided in this and previous appropriations acts for those eight installations be used to maintain them as temporary, expeditionary bases and not be used to lay the groundwork for a permanent U.S. military presence in Iraq. This bill provides a total of $280,300,000 for military construction in Iraq. The Committee has included bill language prohibiting the obligation of these funds until the Secretary of Defense certifies that none of the funds are to be used for the purpose of providing facilities for the permanent stationing of U.S. military forces in Iraq.

Supplemental Emergency Construction Funding- It is the intent of the Committee that emergency military construction funding be used only for projects that are truly unanticipated emergencies and that are expeditionary in nature unless there is an urgent and compelling operational reason to construct permanent facilities. As the U.S. military presence in countries outside of Iraq in the Central Command [CENTCOM] area of responsibility, such as Afghanistan and Djibouti, evolves into a longer term, more enduring presence, the nature of military construction activities in these countries continues to evolve from purely temporary, expeditionary facilities into more permanent facilities. In many cases, it appears that projects for which supplemental emergency funding is requested are for permanent infrastructure that could and should be anticipated and included in the regular budget request. In the future, the Committee expects the Department to submit its anticipated enduring military construction requirements in the CENTCOM region through the regular budget process.

Road Projects, Bagram, Afghanistan- The Army proposes expending $26,000,000 to construct new roads at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan. While this no doubt is a meritorious project, it does not appear to meet the criteria of an unanticipated emergency or urgent operational need. The Committee believes that it would be prudent for the Army to complete a number of other infrastructure projects at Bagram also funded in this bill, including an underground power distribution system, water and sewer distribution system, and fiber optic manhole and duct system, before embarking on a major road construction effort at the base. Therefore, the Committee recommends no funds for this project.

Water Production and Wastewater Treatment Plant, Camp Lemonier, Djibouti- The Department requested a total of $61,630,000 for four utility infrastructure projects at Camp Lemonier, Djibouti. According to the justification material provided for these projects, they are permanent in nature and are intended to meet not only current needs but also future requirements related to the planned expansion of Camp Lemonier. The Committee notes that the Department is in the process of establishing a new African Command [AFRICOM], and does not anticipate naming a Commander until next fall. The Committee believes that the infrastructure requests for Camp Lemonier are predicated on future use instead of immediate need, and further believes that the AFRICOM Commander should have a role in planning the future of Camp Lemonier. For these reasons, the Committee does not recommend funding for two of the requested projects, $18,310,000 for a water production plant and $19,700,000 for a wastewater treatment plant. Due to the harsh climate and desert conditions at Camp Lemonier, the Committee recommends funding the Department's request for an electrical powerplant to provide uninterrupted power and air conditioning, and a water storage facility to increase the supply of potable water on the base.

Parallel Taxiway, Bagram, Afghanistan- The Department requested $49,000,000 to construct a new taxiway parallel to the recently completed runway at Bagram Air Base. According to the justification documents, the parallel taxiway is needed because the new runway is 1,000 feet longer on each end than the existing runway. The Committee is concerned that the disconnect between the length of the new runway and the existing taxiway was not incorporated into the planning and design of the new runway. The Committee understands that the Air Force originally planned to extend the existing taxiway, at a lesser cost, instead of constructing a completely new taxiway, and believes that extending the existing taxiway could be a more cost-efficient method to address the problem. Therefore, the Committee recommends $25,000,000 to extend the existing taxiway.

CHAPTER 7

INTRODUCTION

The Committee recommendation for Department of State and foreign operations, export financing, and related programs totals $5,753,446,000, which is equal to the budget request. These funds are made available to meet humanitarian and reconstruction needs in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Sudan, and Kosovo; to support other country programs that are important to United States national interests; and to continue efforts to prevent the spread of avian influenza. These funds are allocated according to country summary tables and the tables under specific account headings in this report.

The Committee recommends an additional $815,796,000 for Diplomatic and Consular Programs for operations and security at United States Embassies in Iraq, Afghanistan and Sudan, and for global public diplomacy programs. This amount is $97,200,000 below the budget request, and the Committee intends that these funds be allocated consistent with the following table:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Afghanistan Security Upgrades- The Committee recommends $55,000,000 for security upgrades for State Department operations in Afghanistan, an increase of $7,845,000 above the request. Of this amount, $13,000,000 is for armored vehicles and $42,000,000 is for local guards in Kabul.

Iraq- The Committee notes that Congress provided $592,000,000 for construction of a new embassy compound [NEC] in Baghdad in the fiscal year 2005 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act (Public Law 109-13), which reflected a 10 percent decrease below the President's request due to concerns with both the size and cost of the project. When the NEC opens in September 2007, it will be the largest American Embassy in the world. The Committee remains concerned with proposed increases in staff and operations of the NEC in the budget request above those projected in fiscal year 2005. The Committee requests the Secretary to review the personnel plan for the mission in Iraq to provide for the minimum number necessary to achieve U.S. foreign policy goals, giving due consideration to security threats and the rising cost of maintaining diplomatic personnel in Iraq.

The Committee supports the U.S. Government Accountability Office establishing a longer-term presence in Iraq to provide Congress with direct, continuing oversight of U.S. programs and activities. The Committee directs the Department of State to provide GAO staff members with the appropriate clearance and support to accomplish this mission. Within 45 days of enactment of this act, the Department of State shall notify Congress in writing of the steps taken to support GAO's oversight.

Mission Support- The Committee seeks to control the rate of increase in costs at Embassy Baghdad and to ensure that all personnel are housed on the new secure Embassy compound. The Committee recommends $42,881,000 for U.S. mission support, a decrease of $4,765,000 below the budget request, and requests the Secretary of State to justify further increases in diplomatic staffing levels in Baghdad.

Logistics Support- The Committee recommendation does not include $50,000,000 for temporary housing proposed to be located outside the NEC. The Committee requests the Overseas Building Operations Bureau to develop a plan for appropriate personnel to be accommodated in new, secure housing facilities within the NEC.

Security- The Committee recommendation includes $265,827,000 for security of diplomatic personnel in Iraq, which is equal to the request.

Information Technology- The Committee recommendation includes $7,987,000 for IT, a decrease of $887,000 below the request.

Overhead Security- The Committee recommends $12,000,000 for overhead security for Provincial Reconstruction Teams [PRTs], a decrease of $3,000,000 below the request.

Provincial Reconstruction Teams- The Committee recommends $372,696,000 for PRTs, a decrease of $41,393,000 below the budget request.

Sudan Dignitary Travel- The Committee recommendation does not include $5,000,000 for travel costs of U.S. dignitaries within Sudan, and notes that these funds are customarily contained within the annual budget request for State Department operations.

Public Diplomacy- The Committee recommends $20,000,000 for public diplomacy programs, an amount equal to the budget request, and recognizes the potential of effective programs to enhance the image of the United States abroad.

The Committee is aware of the interest in supporting moderate websites that promote tolerance and democratic values in the Middle East and particularly in Muslim majority countries. The Committee recommends that the Department of State consider providing support to increase the capabilities of such bloggers.

The Committee notes the recommendation of the Government Accountability Office [GAO-06-535], and requires the Secretary of State to submit a report to the Committee describing a comprehensive strategy for public diplomacy programming in predominately Muslim countries to help guide these activities in fiscal years 2007 and 2008. The report should include the countries and communities to be targeted in fiscal year 2007 and 2008, the amount of funding to be made available for each country in fiscal year 2007 and the amount planned for fiscal year 2008, specific objectives, methodology to be employed, media sources to be utilized, criteria for measuring the performance of programs including the number of participants projected, and anticipated results.

Evacuations/Terrorism Rewards- The Committee directs the Office of Management and Budget to apportion $15,000,000 to pay the costs of evacuations of U.S. citizens from Lebanon on or after July 16, 2006, pursuant to authority provided in Public Law 109-268. The Committee recommendation also includes authority to transfer $20,000,000 from funds made available in this act for Iraq under the heading Diplomatic and Consular Programs to the Emergencies in the Diplomatic and Consular Service account for emergency evacuation of American citizens abroad or terrorism rewards. The Committee requests to be consulted prior to the use of this transfer authority.

Of this amount, $35,000,000 is for operations of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction and $1,500,000 is for operations of a Middle East Regional Office to conduct oversight by the Office of Inspector General of the Department of State of programs in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Middle East.

EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMS

2007 appropriation to date $445,275,000
2007 supplemental estimate 20,000,000
Committee recommendation 25,000,000

The Committee strongly supports educational and cultural exchange programs as an effective means for improving understanding of the United States, particularly in predominantly Muslim countries. The Committee recommends an additional $25,000,000 to expand educational and cultural programs in these countries, an increase of $5,000,000 above the request. The Committee supports the expansion of exchange opportunities which reach lower income or disenfranchised populations. The Committee recommends $1,000,000 for a pilot program which would create a two-way exchange component of the Youth Exchange and Study Program [YES] for U.S. secondary school students to study in Muslim majority countries.

The Committee intends that these funds be allocated consistent with the following table:

INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

CONTRIBUTIONS TO INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

2007 appropriation to date $1,151,318,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 59,000,000

The Committee is concerned with the growing U.S. arrearages to international organizations, particularly those which play a vital role in combating terrorism, preventing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and preventing the spread of avian influenza and other infectious diseases. The United States increasingly depends on these organizations, while it has consistently failed to pay its assessed share to support the costs of their operations. The Committee believes that U.S. leadership and influence are weakened as a result, and recommends an additional $59,000,000 for Contributions to International Organizations to meet fiscal year 2007 assessed dues to organizations whose missions are critical to protecting U.S. national security interests.

The Committee intends these funds to be used to pay the remaining U.S. arrears to the following organizations: $8,735,000 for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization; $11,709,000 for the International Atomic Energy Agency; $7,940,000 for the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons; $1,737,000 for the International Civil Aviation Organization; $11,663,000 for the World Health Organization; $10,706,000 for the Food and Agriculture Organization; and $6,510,000 for the Pan American Health Organization.

Iraq- The Committee recommends $385,000,000 for democracy, governance, human rights, and rule of law programs in Iraq, a decrease of $43,000,000 below the amount requested under the heading Economic Support Fund, and requires the Secretary of State to submit a comprehensive, long-term democracy promotion strategy for Iraq to the Committee prior to the initial obligation of funds for the National Institutions Fund and the Political Participation Fund.

Iraq- The Committee is concerned with the growing crisis of Iraqi refugees who are putting great strains on neighboring countries.

The Committee recommends not less than $5,000,000 to support a program to enable Iraqi scholars to resettle in Jordan and elsewhere in the region and to continue their academic research and teaching through distance learning programs.

Pakistan- The Committee is aware that the Government of Pakistan has indicated that it will encourage the three million Afghan refugees in Pakistan to return to Afghanistan. It is estimated that as many as one-third of these people may return home where they lack shelter or employment, putting great strains on the ability of the impoverished Afghan Government to care for them. Accordingly, the Committee recommendation includes $18,000,000 for humanitarian assistance for Afghan refugees.

GENERAL PROVISION--THIS CHAPTER

EMERGENCY FORESTRY CONSERVATION RESERVE PROGRAM

SEC. 2101. The Committee recommends a general provision that would allow the Secretary of Agriculture to continue to enroll eligible participants into Emergency Forestry Conservation Reserve Program [EFCRP]. The EFCRP was created in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to assist forest landowners with the restoration of damaged timber stands. The Committee urges the Natural Resources Conservation Service, where appropriate, to utilize plant materials that have a proven record of fast growth, high survivability, and early seed production in its efforts to restore the watersheds affected in the 2005 hurricane season.

STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSITANCE

2007 appropriation to date $189,255,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 170,000,000

The Committee recommends $170,000,000 for Edward Byrne Discretionary Grants for State and local law enforcement.

Within the amount recommended, $70,000,000 is to assist local law enforcement initiatives in the gulf coast region related to the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The Committee directs that no less than $55,000,000 be for initiatives in the State of Louisiana. This funding is necessary to assist State and local enforcement in fighting increased violent crime that has plagued the region as a result of these disasters. The crime epidemic is now threatening the recovery of the region and immediate assistance is crucial to stabilizing the region. This funding will provide the necessary assistance to combat juvenile crime and delinquency, assist in basic operational costs and restore criminal and civil justice recordkeeping systems.

The Committee also recommends, within the amount provided, $100,000,000 for State and local law enforcement entities for security and related costs, including overtime, associated with the 2008 Presidential Candidate Nominating Conventions, to be distributed equally between the city of Denver, Colorado, and the city of St. Paul, Minnesota. The Committee notes the precedent for this funding. In 2004 the Committee provided funding to New York City and Boston for security and related costs for the 2004 Presidential Candidate Nominating Conventions.

The Committee recommends an additional $12,000,000 for the national forest system to begin implementing the national initiative to significantly increase law enforcement operations on national forest lands proposed in the administration's fiscal year 2008 budget submission. The Committee is extremely concerned that foreign drug-trafficking organizations are rapidly increasing the amount of marijuana grown and trafficked on national forests. The Committee believes that the Forest Service should not wait for the beginning of a new fiscal year to move forward with plans to increase drug eradication and improve public safety. Therefore, the Committee has included funding to hire, train and equip new law enforcement personnel and fund cooperative agreements to increase protection of national forest lands. The Committee directs that this funding be targeted to those areas of the country and those national forests that face the highest concentration of drug-trafficking activity.

Committee recommendation 820,000,000

The Committee recommends $820,000,000 to remain available until expended, for the Department of Health and Human Services to prepare for an influenza pandemic. The Committee continues to be concerned about the threat posed by an influenza pandemic and our ability to respond to such a threat.

On November 1, 2005, the President requested a total of $7,100,000,000 in emergency funding for pandemic influenza preparedness activities, of which $6,700,000,000 was for activities at the Department of Health and Human Services [HHS]. Congress has since appropriated $5,600,000,000 for pandemic preparedness activities at HHS. This appropriation provides the third installment of funding for pandemic preparedness activities. These funds are sufficient to allow the Secretary of Health and Human Services to fully fund the goal of stockpiling antiviral medications for 25 percent of the population. The Committee recommends that a portion of these funds be directed to State and local public health preparedness programs.

The Committee recommendation includes bill language granting the Secretary various authorities to purchase goods for the strategic national stockpile, to construct or renovate privately owned facilities for the production of pandemic influenza vaccine, and to transfer funds to other HHS accounts.

Technical Correction- In regard to the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) request dated January 24, 2007, to reprogram military construction funds, the Committee instead recommends appropriating $3,096,000 for an Air Force Reserve construction project and rescinds the same amount from Public Law 109-114. This action was requested due to an Air Force Reserve mission change.

BASE CLOSURE ACCOUNT, 2005

2007 appropriation to date $2,489,421,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 3,136,802,000

The Committee recommends an additional $3,136,802,000 for the Base Closure Account 2005. This amount, along with the $2,489,421,000 included in Public Law 110-5, the fiscal year 2007 continuing resolution, fully funds the administration's base closure request for fiscal year 2007.

Brigade Combat Teams- The Committee is concerned about the implementation of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure [BRAC] process as it affects the fielding of new brigade combat teams. The Committee directs the Secretary of the Army, no later than 60 days following enactment, to provide to the Committee a report on the Army Campaign Plan and the stationing of each Brigade Combat Team [BCT] as identified in the BRAC process, including the stationing of a BCT at Fort Knox, Kentucky. At a minimum, the report shall include: a detailed schedule for the manning, equipping and funding of each BCT; the military construction costs associated with each BCT's arrival at each installation, including Fort Knox; and the readiness of training ranges, military health facilities, and morale, welfare, and recreation facilities required to support each brigade at each installation.

DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS

The recent events surrounding Walter Reed Army Medical Center have brought to the forefront the level of care being provided to our Nation's injured soldiers and veterans and their plight with regard to bureaucratic redtape. The nature of combat that today's military personnel are facing in Iraq and Afghanistan, coupled with advances in battlefield medicine, have stretched the ability of the Department of Veterans Affairs [VA] to provide timely assistance and healthcare. This was evidenced by the announcement in 2006 of a shortfall in funding for medical care of almost $3,000,000,000 spanning 2 fiscal years. The shortfall was due in part to the underestimation of the number of soldiers returning from Operation Enduring Freedom [OEF] and Operation Iraqi Freedom [OIF] who would utilize the VA system. Congress was quick to take action and appropriated the necessary funding to ensure the VA would not have to increase waiting times for medical care appointments. However, it is evident that more needs to be done. Claims backlogs still plague the system; in fact, the VA has almost 400,000 pending claims and expects 800,000 new claims this year and an additional 800,000 in fiscal year 2008. Additionally, the complexity of adjudicating the claims is estimated to grow as veterans are documenting a greater number of disabilities, such as post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD] and complex combat injuries. VA statistics show that the number of cases with eight or more disabilities claimed increased 135 percent from 2000 to 2006, with claims from OEF and OIF veterans expected to rise.

For the past several years, the VA has severely underestimated the number of returning OEF and OIF veterans projected to utilize the healthcare system. In fiscal year 2007, the VA now estimates that it will treat over 209,000 OEF/OIF veterans--100,000 more than was initially estimated. VA's latest statistics show that over 35 percent of the returning OEF and OIF veterans who have sought care through the VA have done so for mental health problems. These problems range from PTSD symptoms to alcohol and drug dependence. Additionally, the VA's polytrauma centers have been instrumental in treating active duty wounded soldiers, as well as those recently separated from the services. Traumatic brain injury [TBI] has been called the signature wound of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It has become clear that the VA will need additional tools and resources to not only treat these soldiers and veterans immediately, but also to deal with their rehabilitation, which in many instances could stretch decades.

While the Committee applauds the recent actions taken by the VA to address some long term problems, such as screening all GWOT veterans for TBI, it is very concerned about the Department's lack of timely responses to congressional inquiries regarding implementation of new initiatives. The Committee reminds the Department that accurate cost estimates and information need to be provided in a thorough and timely manner in order to ensure efficient implementation of programs and adequate funding levels. The VA needs the resources to ensure that taking care of today's combat veterans does not come at the expense of decreased quality of care or increased wait times for all veterans. Therefore, the Committee recommendation includes additional funding to increase healthcare capacity, strengthen research in the area of neuro- trauma, enhance the compensation and pension process, and address needed maintenance and construction at VA healthcare facilities.

VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION

MEDICAL SERVICES

2007 appropriation to date $25,423,250,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 454,131,000

The Committee recommendation includes $454,131,000 for Medical Services for the Veterans Health Administration. The additional funds will allow the Department to build capacity and enhance polytrauma services and mental health capability and provide a contingency fund for OEF/OIF veterans.

Polytrauma Care/Traumatic Brain Injury- The VA healthcare system has played an important part in the treatment and rehabilitation of both active duty and separated OEF and OIF veterans. With specialties in spinal cord injuries, blind rehabilitation and polytrauma, the VA has become a significant resource and complement to the Department of Defense's healthcare system. In fiscal year 2005, Congress provided funding for the establishment of four level I comprehensive polytrauma centers which are located in Richmond, Virginia; Tampa, Florida; Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Palo Alto, California. Often these centers become the site of treatment of active duty soldiers suffering from TBI and take the lead in the important role of rehabilitation. However, the Committee is concerned that four centers may not be adequate to meet both increased need and geographic availability. Therefore, the recommendation includes $50,000,000 for the VA to establish additional level I comprehensive polytrauma centers. The Department is directed to provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate within 60 days of enactment of this act detailing the number of centers to be opened and the sites selected. The Committee encourages the Department to work with the Department of Defense to identify opportunities for sharing these new resources.

Severely injured veterans may require extensive periods of rehabilitation to successfully integrate back into the community. Traumatic brain injury, particularly in combination with PTSD and other stress reactions and mental health problems, is among the conditions that require extensive rehabilitation, including transitional programming. Following the acute phase of rehabilitation, cognitive and behavioral difficulties often persist which prevent effective community reentry and/or return to duty. Transitional rehabilitation programs are a key factor to successful reentry by providing clinically relevant and comprehensive treatment for improving cognitive, behavioral and physical functioning. The Committee is aware that the VA has only one polytrauma residential transitional rehabilitation program. The recommendation includes $9,440,000 in operation costs associated with the establishment of at least four new polytrauma residential transitional rehabilitation programs.

There are currently 76 polytrauma support clinic teams in the VA. These local teams of providers with rehabilitation expertise deliver follow up services in consultation with regional and network specialists. They also assist in management of stable patients through direct care, consultation and the use of tele-rehabilitation technologies, when needed. The recommendation includes $8,000,000 for the establishment of 10 new teams.

Smaller VHA facilities which lack the expertise or resources to meet rehabilitation and prosthetic needs of polytrauma patients have polytrauma points of contact. These are individuals who serve as a point of contact for consultation, assessment and referral of polytrauma patients to a facility capable of providing the level of service required. The recommendation includes $5,356,000 for the hiring of at least 52 new points of contact.

One of the major effects of TBI is vision impairment. The VA's Blind Rehabilitative Service is known worldwide for its excellence in delivering comprehensive blind rehabilitation to our Nation's blind veterans at 10 VA blind rehabilitation centers. On July, 22, 2004, GAO testified before Congress that more outpatient services for blind veterans and better outpatient training could better meet the demands of today's blind veteran population. Since 1940, the VA has focused its training and treatment at inpatient facilities. While the VA should continue to support and maintain its inpatient capacity at its blind rehabilitation centers, it should also begin to expand its treatment for blind veterans through outpatient services closer to where veterans live. The recommendation includes $10,000,000 for the VA to begin implementing a plan to expand more outpatient blind rehabilitation services and training consistent with the recommendations of the GAO report: `More Outpatient Rehabilitation Services for Blind Veterans Could Better Meet their Needs' (GAO-04-996T).

While the VA's existing level I polytrauma centers are heralded as among the best treatment centers in the world, the Committee is concerned about the level of emphasis on the part of the VA on care after release. Many instances have surfaced lately concerning veterans that did not receive timely treatment when returning to home networks. In addition, the Committee is unaware of any step-down extended care or long-term care facilities dedicated to veterans released from the polytrauma centers with disabilities that are not compatible with standard VA facilities. For example, mixing severely disabled veterans suffering from TBI with geriatric patients in existing long-term care facilities is not consistent with fair and equitable treatment to the veteran or their families. Therefore, the VA is directed to report to the Committees on Appropriations within 60 days of enactment of this act detailing its plan for treatment/care of veterans after they are released from a level I polytrauma center. The report should contain the VA's assessment of the need for extended care and long-term care facilities in each network that may be needed for those veterans who will need intensive day-to-day care for the rest of their lives.

The Committee directs the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to submit a report to the Committee on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate regarding the treatment and outreach toward OEF/OIF veterans with TBI and their families within 60 days after enactment of this act, describing the communication procedures and policies for family members of TBI patients; detailing efforts to facilitate the transition for TBI patients from the Department of Defense health system to the VA; providing an accounting of the number of active duty and veterans suffering from TBI currently being treated in the VA healthcare system; and, providing an accounting of funds budgeted and expended for TBI treatment and outreach efforts.

Mental Health/Substance Abuse/Readjustment Counseling- The Committee remains concerned about the impact the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will have on the ability of the VA to provide comprehensive, timely, and effective mental health services. The VA's latest statistics show that over 35 percent of the returning OEF and OIF veterans who have sought care through the VA have done so for mental health problems. These numbers are likely to rise given the number of multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and the nature of the fighting on the ground. Additionally, many veterans may not seek treatment immediately upon separation from active duty, but instead may seek treatment in future years as symptoms worsen. To assist the VA in addressing this problem, the recommendation includes $100,000,000 for mental health enhancements throughout the Veterans Health Administration. The intention is to provide additional funding for the VA to target those areas where mental health services are lacking, including but not limited to, rural areas and areas where waiting times exceed 30 days. The Committee directs the Department to provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate within 60 days of enactment of this act detailing efforts to hire and retain mental health professionals in each Veterans Integrated Service Network, the usage of contract care when appropriate, and the expenditure of the funds provided.

According to the VA, early reports suggest there will be at least a 150-percent increase in alcohol abuse within 6 months of returning from deployment in Iraq or Afghanistan. Many of these veterans have concurrent psychiatric or medical conditions which exacerbate the situation. The estimates for substance abuse treatment on which the VA has budgeted for fiscal year 2007 and fiscal year 2008 are relatively flat when compared to fiscal year 2006. The Committee understands that the VA is attempting to develop better integrated care models to improve delivery of substance abuse programs. Therefore, the Committee includes $30,000,000 for the VA to build capacity in both outpatient programs as well as inpatient programs.

Vet centers are designed as a non-medical readjustment counseling program in contrast to a medical treatment program. These `storefront' centers are located in communities outside of the larger medical facilities in easily accessible local settings and are highly responsive to the needs of local veterans. Readjustment counseling provided through Vet centers features service units emphasizing post-war rehabilitation, various social services addressing the social and economic dimensions of post-war readjustment, psychological counseling for traumatic military-related experiences, including PTSD, and family counseling when needed for the veteran's readjustment. These centers have seen increasing usage from GWOT veterans leading to a strain and waiting lists at many of the sites. The recommendation includes $20,000,000 to give the VA the ability to open new Vet centers and hire additional staffing for existing centers.

Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom Contingency Fund- The recommendation includes $201,335,000 in Medical Services for treatment associated with OEF/OIF veterans. Since the onset of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the VA has underestimated each year the number of OEF/OIF veterans that would utilize the VA healthcare system. While the Committee understands that the VA is refining its modeling to provide better projections, it remains concerned that the underestimation in fiscal year 2006 and fiscal year 2007 has impacted services for other veterans. Therefore, the Committee has included the additional funding above the fiscal year 2007 budget estimate to allow the VA to utilize supplemental funding for the treatment of these veterans.

MEDICAL ADMINISTRATION

2007 appropriation to date $3,156,850,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 250,000,000

The Committee recommendation includes $250,000,000 for Medical Administration to ensure the efficient management of the VA healthcare system. The Committee is aware that the Department is planning on reprogramming $230,000,000 from Medical Services to Medical Administration to better align the two accounts. The additional funding provided would negate the need for this transfer.

MEDICAL FACILITIES

2007 appropriation to date $3,558,150,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 595,000,000

The Committee recommendation includes $595,000,000 for Medical Facilities for the Veterans Health Administration. The additional funds will allow the Department to make critical fire and life safety upgrades at VHA facilities throughout the country and to enhance services at polytrauma rehabilitation centers and network sites.

Maintenance Corrections- The Veterans Health Administration provides care to over 5.5 million veterans through 155 hospitals and 717 outpatient clinics. Unfortunately, budget pressures have often led to inadequate budget requests for non-recurring maintenance. To provide high quality care, state-of-the-art facilities are needed. The Department conducts rolling facilities condition assessments which have identified a total of $5,000,000,000 worth of deficiencies at existing facilities. The Committee recommendation includes $550,000,000 to allow the Department to address the most critical needs within the system, including fire and life safety issues, accreditation problems and to enhance clinical capabilities. The Committee is concerned that past budget submissions have neglected to address these issues and directs the Department to provide adequate funding requests for non-recurring maintenance in future budget submissions.

The Committee directs the Department to provide a report detailing facility deficiencies and the correction plan which will be implemented to address them. This report should include an expenditure plan for the use of funds appropriated for fiscal year 2007 as well as the additional funding included in this act. Furthermore, the Committee directs the Department to report what identified facility deficiencies will not be addressed by this plan and the total cost of addressing those deficiencies. This report is due to the Committees on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate no later than 60 days following enactment of this act.

Polytrauma Network Upgrades- The Committee recommendation includes $45,000,000 for equipment and facility upgrades at the polytrauma rehabilitation centers and the polytrauma network sites. The Department currently has four level I comprehensive polytrauma centers and 17 level II tertiary polytrauma care centers. The additional funds will allow the VA to upgrade the facilities and purchase new equipment to ensure high quality care at all centers.

DEPARTMENTAL ADMINISTRATION

GENERAL OPERATING EXPENSES

2007 appropriation to date $1,472,164,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 46,000,000

The Committee recommendation includes $46,000,000 for the hiring and training of new compensation and pension claims adjudicators. The Secretary recently announced that the VA has put into place a process to expedite OEF and OIF veterans benefits claims. While this action is commendable, it does not adequately address the root problem for delays in the system. New claims receipts have grown by 39 percent from 2000 to 2006. The average wait time for a veteran's claim to be processed is 177 days, almost 6 months, and the Department has a current backlog of almost 400,000 claims. Meanwhile the Veterans Benefits Administration has seen the complexity of claims grow, with multiple disability claims for complex combat injuries, environmental diseases and PTSD. The need for more claims adjudicators is apparent. The additional funding will allow the VBA to hire and train up to 400 new claims processors. Furthermore, the Committee directs the Department to provide a report on the number of new hires for claims processing in fiscal year 2007 and projections for 2008, the attrition rate for claims examiners, the projected productivity per FTE, the productivity by Veterans Integrated Service Network, and the plan to leverage new technology to create a more efficient system. This report is due to the Committees on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate no later than 60 days following enactment of this act.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SYSTEMS

2007 appropriation to date $1,214,000,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 36,100,000

The Committee recommendation includes $36,100,000 for Information Technology related to technology support and improvements for processing veterans claims, including new technology for the improvement of record transfers between the VA and Department of Defense for OEF/OIF veterans, as well as proactive assembly of new soldier records for future use for VBA claims processing, digitizing records, and remediation/prevention actions being taken in relation to a recent data breach. The additional funding will allow the Department to leverage new technology to assist in streamlining the benefits claims process.

CONSTRUCTION, MINOR PROJECTS

2007 appropriation to date $199,000,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 355,907,000

The Committee recommendation includes $355,907,000 for Construction, Minor Projects. This level of funding includes $319,907,000 for unfunded high priority projects that the Department has not included in its budget submission for fiscal year 2007 or fiscal year 2008 and $36,000,000 for construction needs associated with the establishment of additional polytrauma residential transitional rehabilitation programs.

1 Made available pursuant to Public Law 109-59.

The Committee recommends an additional $388,903,000 to carry out repair and restoration activities under the Emergency Relief program. On February 23, 2007, the Department of Transportation announced the award of $112,626,281 in Emergency Relief grants for fiscal year 2007. Even after the award of these grants, however, the Federal Highway Administration [FHWA] still carries a backlog of $388,903,000 in eligible requests for funding under the Emergency Relief program. This backlog includes requests to cover ongoing expenses associated with the recovery from Hurricane Katrina. The cost of providing these funds is offset by a rescission of contract authority, and the Committee directs FHWA to administer this rescission by allowing each State maximum flexibility in making these adjustments among the five affected programs of the Federal-Aid Highway program.

2007 appropriation to date $1,338,537,000
2007 supplemental estimate ...........................
Committee recommendation 75,000,000

On November 16, 2006, the Farm Service Agency's [FSA] data processing center located in Kansas City, Missouri, began periodically shutting down due in most part to capacity overloads. This computer system is responsible for processing payments for all farm programs administered by FSA. There have been many instances where farmers did not receive payments in a timely manner, and the efficiency of the thousands of FSA county office employees has decreased dramatically as a result of this aging computer system. In order to increase the operating capacity of the system, the agency attempted rationing the time employees could use their computers depending on what state they are located. The results were unsuccessful, and these issues continue to create problems. After consultation with the agency, the Committee recommends $75,000,000 for maintenance and repair of the system contingent on a detailed spending plan, along with timely updates throughout the modernization process. The Committee will utilize the resources of the Government Accountability Office to analyze the spending plan and continually monitor the progress made by the agency.

GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

(RESCISSION)

SEC. 3101. The administration has assured the Committee that no more than $15,000,000 of the $90,000,000 in the Trade Adjustment Assistance program account for fiscal year 2007 will be obligated. Therefore the Committee recommends the rescission of $75,000,000 from this program and has deemed the maintenance and repair of the Farm Service Agency computer system to be a better use of these resources.

SEC. 3102. The Committee recommends a general provision regarding the implementation of the Wetlands Reserve Program and the Farmland Protection Program.

The Committee has included language requiring that the administration's recently-announced pilot project for the initiation of cross-border trucking with the Republic of Mexico shall be subject to the statutory requirements contained in title 49, United States Code, for `pilot programs' conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The language also ensures that long-haul Mexican trucks shall not have access to Unites States highways beyond the current commercial zone until trucking firms domiciled in the United States have the opportunity for comparable and simultaneous access throughout Mexico. This section arises out of concerns raised by the Committee during a hearing held by the Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies on March 8, 2007.

SEC. 4002. The Committee includes a technical provision clarifying that certain activities funded under HUD's tenant-based rental assistance program shall be funded at levels consistent with the President's request for fiscal year 2007.

SEC. 4003. The Committee notes that considerable concern and confusion continues to surround HUD's looming requirement for several public housing agencies to transition to the Department's asset management model in order to avoid a precipitous decline in Federal operating subsidies. The Committee remains concerned that HUD has not provided final guidance or adequate, clear and consistent technical direction to assist these public housing agencies with this transition. Moreover, it is not clear that HUD has developed the necessary administrative capacity to review and promptly respond to applications by public housing agencies that seek to demonstrate successful conversion to asset management. As such, the Committee has included a general provision delaying the final implementation of this conversion until September 1, 2007. The Committee directs that the Department complete all necessary final guidance and administrative preparations within the additional time provided.

CHAPTER 11

GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS ACT

AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS

SEC. 4101. The Committee recommends a provision that limits the availability of the funds provided in this supplemental to the current fiscal year unless expressly provided otherwise.

NOTIFICATION OF EMERGENCY LEGISLATION

The congressional budget resolution agreed to by Congress for fiscal year 2006, House Con. Res. 95 of the 109th Congress, includes provisions relating to the notification of emergency spending. These provisions require a statement of how the emergency provisions meet the criteria for emergency spending identified by the budget resolutions. This bill contains emergency funding for fiscal year 2007 that is related to the global war on terror, troop readiness, recovery from hurricanes in the gulf coast region, emerging threats to our homeland security, pandemic influenza prevention, and unmet needs of veterans. Such spending is identified throughout the report for titles I and II. The funding is related to unanticipated needs and is for situations that are sudden, urgent, and unforeseen, specifically the global war on terror in the aftermath of 9/11, and the devastating hurricanes of 2005. These events fit the specific criteria for emergencies.

EMERGENCY DESIGNATION FOR TITLE I

SEC. 4102. The Committee recommends an emergency designation for the funds contained in title I.

EMERGENCY DESIGNATION FOR TITLE II

SEC. 4103. The Committee recommends an emergency designation for the funds contained in title II.

TITLE IV

EMERGENCY FARM RELIEF ACT OF 2007

COMMODITY CREDIT CORPORATION FUND

The Committee recommends emergency spending of such sums as are necessary of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation, estimated in fiscal year 2007 to be $4,151,000,000, to make emergency assistance available for production losses and other consequences due to natural disasters. Assistance under this act shall be provided to eligible producers and entities for losses in either 2005, 2006, or no later than February 28, 2007.

CROP DISASTER ASSISTANCE

The Committee recommends emergency spending of such sums as are necessary of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation, estimated in fiscal year 2007 to be $2,090,000,000, to provide assistance due to crop production losses, except for sugar beet production, and crop quality losses that were incurred in 2005, 2006, or no later than February 28, 2007.

The loss threshold for insurable crops shall be 35 percent of a producer's yield as established through crop insurance participation requirements. The payment rate for crop disaster assistance shall be 55 percent of the established price for producers who purchased crop insurance or participated in the Non-Insured Assistance Program [NAP] for the applicable period. Payment rates for producers who did not purchase crop insurance or did not participate in NAP shall be 20 percent of the price established for producers.

Crop disaster assistance under this act also provides for payments to compensate producers for losses due to impaired crop quality. Quality loss payments shall be 55 percent of the actual market discount applied to the commodity times the lesser of the actual production or the producer's yield for crop insurance for NAP purposes. To be eligible to receive a quality loss payment, the producer's loss must reflect at least a 25-percent reduction in crop value from what the market value would have been if not for the quality loss.

LIVESTOCK ASSISTANCE

The Committee recommends emergency spending of such sums as are necessary of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation, estimated in fiscal year 2007 to be a total of $1,638,000,000, to provide assistance to livestock producers for losses that were incurred in 2005 or 2006, including losses from winter storms that began in December 2006 and continued into January 2007.

Within the amount available for Livestock Assistance, the Committee recommends emergency spending of $95,000,000 for payments to dairy producers for losses in counties designated by the Secretary as disaster areas.

The Committee further recommends emergency spending of such sums as may be necessary, estimated in fiscal year 2007 to be $1,498,000,000, to carry out a Livestock Compensation Program [LCP] to assist producers in counties designated by the Secretary as disaster areas. LCP payments shall be used to offset feed losses and higher costs of livestock feed purchases. The payment rate under this program shall be 80 percent of the rate established for the 2002 LCP.

The Committee also recommends emergency spending of such sums as may be necessary, estimated in fiscal year 2007 to be $32,000,000, to carry out a Livestock Indemnity Program [LIP] to assist producers in counties designated by the Secretary as disaster areas. Eligible producers shall receive compensation under LIP at a rate of not less than 30 percent of the market value of the livestock.

The Committee also recommends emergency spending of $13,000,000 for a Ewe Lamb Replacement and Retention Payment Program for producers in disaster counties for each ewe lamb retained or purchased during 2006. A producer receiving assistance under this program is not eligible for LCP payments.

FLOODED CROP AND GRAZING LAND

The Committee recommends emergency spending of $6,000,000 of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation to compensate eligible owners of flooded crop and grazing land in North Dakota for the loss of the use of their land due to flooding caused by the overflow of closed basin lakes in the region.

SUGAR BEET AND SUGAR CANE DISASTER ASSISTANCE

The Committee recommends emergency spending of $24,000,000 of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation to assist eligible sugar beet producers and $3,000,000 for eligible sugar cane producers who suffered losses from natural disasters.

NONINSURED CROP ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

The Committee recommends language to clarify the use of claims adjustors for performance of loss assessments on grazing lands.

SMALL BUSINESS ECONOMIC LOSS GRANT PROGRAM

The Committee recommends emergency spending of $100,000,000 of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation for grants to State departments of agriculture for distribution to eligible small businesses that are dependent on agricultural activities (such as crop dusters, small processors, custom harvesters, and other businesses) that have suffered losses due to natural disasters. In addition, the Committee recommends language that allows State departments of agriculture to distribute funds to compensate eligible farmworkers in a manner consistent with the Emergency Grants to Assist Low-Income Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers Act.

TREE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

The Committee recommends emergency spending of such sums as are necessary of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation, estimated in fiscal year 2007 to be $40,000,000, to provide assistance under subtitle C of title X of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 for producers who suffered qualifying losses in disaster counties to trees, vines, and crop producing or marketable bushes. Assistance provided through these funds may include payments for activities such as pruning, rehabilitation, and other appropriate measures as determined by the Secretary.

CONSERVATION

The Committee recommends emergency spending of $35,000,000 of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation to carry out emergency measures of the Emergency Conservation Program in disaster counties.

The Committee recommends emergency spending of $50,000,000 of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation for the Emergency Watershed Protection Program [EWP] to carry out emergency recovery activities identified by the Secretary. Of any amounts made available by the act in excess of needs identified by the Secretary on the date of enactment, the Committee directs that such funds be held in reserve and used for any future EWP requirements that meet the need of exigencies described at 7 C.F.R. 624.8(c)(3)(i).

The Committee recommends emergency spending of $115,000,000 of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation for the Conservation Security Program.

INSECT DAMAGE

The Committee recommends emergency spending of $20,000,000 of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation to carry out emergency measures relating to insect infestations in the States of Nevada, Idaho, and Utah.

ADMINISTRATION

The Committee recommends language to ensure that funds made available by this act shall be used in the most prudent and effective manner possible, including prohibitions on duplication of payments for similar losses from other programs, streamlining of regulatory requirements, and other measures.

In addition, the Committee recommends emergency spending of $30,000,000 of the funds from the Commodity Credit Corporation to the Farm Service Agency to cover necessary costs relating to administration of the programs included in the act. Of that amount, the Secretary may use up to $19,000,000 to hire county office personnel to assist producers. Also, $21,000,000 is provided for other administrative costs, including upgrades for agency computers to assist in carrying out the provisions of this act.
