In furtherance of that policy, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury (acting through the United States executive directors to international financial institutions), the Secretary of Energy, and the Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) should, as appropriate, vigorously promote the use of United States clean coal technology in environmental and energy infrastructure programs, projects and activities.

This bill was developed through negotiations by subcommittee members of the Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs Subcommittees of the House and Senate on the differences in the House passed and Senate passed versions of H.R. 4811. References in the following description to the ``conference agreement'' mean the matter included in the introduced bill enacted by this conference report. References to the House bill mean the House passed version of H.R. 4811. References to the Senate bill or Senate amendment mean the Senate passed version of H.R. 4811. TITLE I--EXPORT AND INVESTMENT ASSISTANCE EXPORT-IMPORT BANK OF THE UNITED STATES SUBSIDY APPROPRIATION The conference agreement appropriates $865,000,000 for the subsidy appropriation of the Export-Import Bank instead of $768,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $742,500,000 as proposed by the House. ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES The conference agreement appropriates $62,000,000 for administrative expenses of the Export-Import Bank instead of $58,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $55,000,000 as proposed by the House. The conferees also have included a limitation of $30,000 on representation expenses of members of the Bank's Board of Directors. The managers are very concerned by the Bank's recent consideration of a change to its regulations that would reduce the volume of U.S. exports financed by the Bank that are subject to cargo preference regulations. The managers direct that none of the funds provided under this heading in this or prior year appropriation acts shall be used to plan, finalize, or implement any notice, regulation, or change in policy with regard to Public Resolution 17 (46 App. U.S.C. 1241 1) (1998). OVERSEAS PRIVATE INVESTMENT CORPORATION non-credit account The conference agreement provides $38,000,000 for administrative expenses of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) as proposed by the Senate instead of $37,000,000 as proposed by the House. The managers urge OPIC to refrain from entering into contracts involving the Palestinian Authority until the Committees have been informed that contract disputes between the Authority and United States corporate entities have been resolved. TRADE AND DEVELOPMENT AGENCY The conference agreement appropriates $50,000,000 for the Trade and Development Agency instead of $46,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and the House. It does not include language regarding reimbursements as proposed by the Senate. TITLE II--BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT CHILD SURVIVAL AND DISEASE PROGRAMS FUND The conference agreement appropriates $963,000,000 for the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund instead of $886,000,000 as proposed by the House. The Senate bill contained no provision on this matter, but included regular and emergency funds for these activities under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Global Health''. The conference agreement also continues limitations on the use of the Fund for non-project assistance. The managers include a United States contribution to UNICEF, and AID's program to promote basic education for children, within the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund, as proposed by the House. The conference agreement includes language allocating $963,000,000 among six program categories in the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund: $295,000,000 for child survival and maternal health, including vaccine-preventable diseases such as polio; $30,000,000 for vulnerable children; $300,000,000 for HIV/AIDS; $125,000,000 for other infectious diseases; $103,000,000 for children's basic education; and $110,000,000 for UNICEF. The conferees expect that any change proposed subsequent to the allocation as directed in bill language will be subject to the requirements of section 515 of the Act. A full definition of these program categories and their components can be found on pages 8 through 10 of House Report 106 270. Within the child survival and maternal health program, authority is provided to transfer up to $50,000,000 as proposed by the Senate to a fund established for child immunization by the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI). The House bill provided authority to transfer up to $37,500,000 to GAVI. The managers are supportive of the GAVI and direct that the Committees be informed in writing 20 days prior to the obligation of any funds for GAVI on the proposed use of any U.S. contribution, particularly with regard to the amount to be donated for procurement of vaccines for children. The managers note that a large part of the vulnerable children program assists AIDS orphans, who also benefit from the HIV/AIDS program. Although the conference agreement does not include bill language regarding funding for blind children, as proposed by the Senate, the managers recommend not less than $1,200,000 for assistance for blind children. The managers also support a total of $5,000,000 for the Kiwanis/UNICEF Iodine Deficiency program, with $2,500,000 from the Child Survival and Disease Programs account and $2,500,000 from regional accounts for Europe and Eurasia. AID is also encouraged to provide up to $2,000,000 to support non-governmental organizations, such as Special Olympics, that work with older children, including those with cognitive disabilities and mild mental retardation, to teach life and job skills. The vulnerable children program and AID's Office of Private Voluntary Cooperation are encouraged to provide small matching grants to American-led volunteer programs in India and other nations that seek to remedy physical disabilities through reconstructive surgery. The conference agreement includes $315,000,000 for HIV/AIDS, of which $300,000,000 is allocated within this account and not less than $15,000,000 in other accounts and programs. The conference agreement does not include bill language concerning microbicides. However, the managers endorse the Senate report language on microbicides and direct that not less than $15,000,000 from the HIV/AIDS program and the ``Development Assistance'' account be made available to the Office of Health and Nutrition for microbicide research and development. These funds are to be managed by the Director of the HIV/AIDS Division. In addition, the managers support the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), which seeks to accelerate the development and distribution of an effective AIDS vaccine for use in developing countries. The managers urge that not less than $10,000,000 be provided as a contribution to the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative. In addition, the managers direct AID to make available $500,000 for a proposal from the University of California at San Francisco to develop detailed epidemiological HIV/AIDS profiles for priority countries and an online, searchable database of key comparative indicators. The managers also encourage AID to collaborate with the Peace Corps' HIV/AIDS initiative, especially in supporting training activities. The expected results of funds to develop and promote the use of vaccines in developing countries will also assist international travelers to endemic areas. The managers urge the Department of State and AID to require staff, grantees, and contractors to take all feasible steps to reduce the importation of vaccine-preventible infectious diseases, such as hepatitis, into the United States. The managers note that the Global AIDS and Tuberculosis Relief Act of 2000 (P.L. 106 264) authorized that 65 percent of the HIV/AIDS funding be provided through non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The managers concur that NGOs, including religious institutions and faith based organizations, provide invaluable services in the fight against HIV/AIDS. In anticipation of an increasing involvement of the public sector, particularly in the areas of treatment and the provision of interventions to reduce mother-to-child transmission, the managers agree that assistance provided through NGOs in cooperation with a foreign government or using government facilities may be counted against the 65 percent target in AID's strategy to implement the Act. Within the HIV/AIDS program, authority is provided to transfer $20,000,000 to the fund authorized by section 141 of the Global AIDS and Tuberculosis Relief Act. The managers expect the Secretary of the Treasury and the Administrator of the Agency for International Development to report to the Committees no later than April 30, 2001 on progress toward establishment of an international AIDS Trust Fund administered by the World Bank. The managers urge that expanded resources be made available to mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) programs. As effective implementation of MTCT programs will take time, during which health care workers will be trained, laboratory and testing facilities established, and community based care services for HIV positive mothers developed, AID may not be able to meet the Global AIDS Act's 8.3 percent MTCT funding target in fiscal year 2001. The managers expect that USAID will achieve the MTCT target by the end of fiscal year 2002. The conference agreement includes at least $60,000,000 from all accounts to address the global health threat from tuberculosis, including not less than $45,000,000 from the other infectious diseases program in the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund. The managers urge AID to continue to work in close collaboration with organizations such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, the Gorgas Memorial Institute, and the Global STOP TB Initiative to implement effective tuberculosis control programs at the local level. The managers direct AID to continue and expand TB programs undertaken in cooperation with federal and state governments in Mexico, especially along Mexico's borders with Texas, California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Guatemala. The other infectious diseases program also includes $30,000,000 for antimicrobial resistance and infectious disease surveillance, and $50,000,000 for international efforts to reduce the incidence of malaria. Drug resistant parasites and insecticide-resistant mosquitoes exacerbate malaria transmission and place millions throughout the world at risk of a crippling and often fatal disease. For this reason, the managers encourage USAID to designate $2,000,000 to support the establishment of coordinated centers of excellence for malaria research, to focus on tropical and sub-tropical regions. The managers support and urge AID to favorably consider proposals for a concerted approach to limiting the resurgence of malaria that are submitted jointly by the University of Notre Dame's Vector Biology Laboratory, Tulane University's Department of Tropical Medicine in New Orleans, and Latin American and African counterpart institutions. The managers are aware that the HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis crises require extraordinary efforts on the part of the U.S. Government. USAID is encouraged to use, as appropriate, its existing waiver authorities regarding financing and procurement of goods and services, and grant making, in order to expedite the provision of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis assistance and enhance the efficiency of that assistance. The managers support and urge AID to favorably consider proposals by Carelift International. The managers anticipate that the ongoing, multiyear collaboration between AID and Carelift International will be expanded and require $7,000,000, including future year appropriations. The conference agreement does not include Senate language directing AID to make available to Carelift International up to $7,000,000 from fiscal year 2001 funds only. The managers also direct AID to continue to provide the Committees with a detailed annual report not later than February 15, 2001, on the programs, projects, and activities undertaken by the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund during fiscal year 2000. Funds appropriated for the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund are intended to be used for programs, projects and activities. Funds for administrative expenses to manage Fund activities are provided in a separate account, with two exceptions included in the conference agreement: authority for AID's central and regional bureaus to use up to $125,000 from program funds for Operating Expense-funded personnel to better monitor and provide oversight of the Fund; and, in section 522, authority to use up to $16,000,000 to reimburse other government agencies and private institutions for professional services. Any proposed transfer of appropriations from the Fund for administrative expenses of AID under any other authority shall be subject to section 515 of this Act. Development Assistance The conference agreement appropriates $1,305,000,000 for ``Development Assistance'' instead of $1,258,000,000 as proposed by the House and $1,368,250,000 as proposed by the Senate. The Senate included funding for programs carried out by the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' under its ``Development Assistance'' account. Of the funds under this heading, the conference agreement appropriates up to $12,000,000 for the Inter-American Foundation and up to $16,000,000 to the African Development Foundation. The House bill proposed up to $10,000,000 for the Inter-American Foundation and up to $16,000,000 for the African Development Foundation. The Senate amendment did not propose funding for the Inter-American Foundation and provided up to $14,400,000 for the African Development Foundation. Section 591 of the conference agreement provides the President with the authority to abolish the Inter-American Foundation during fiscal year 2001. The Senate amendment proposed that not less than $425,000,000 be made available to carry out section 104(b) of the Foreign Assistance Act, regarding international population planning assistance. The House addressed this matter in section 586 of its bill and placed a ceiling of $385,000,000 on bilateral family planning assistance. The conference agreement addresses funding and restrictions for international family planning in section 598. The conference agreement does not include language contained in the Senate amendment providing that $2,500,000 may be transferred from this account to the ``International Organizations and Programs'' account to provide a total contribution of $5,000,000 to the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). The conference agreement provides $5,000,000 from title IV of this Act for IFAD, as proposed by the House. The conference agreement includes bill language similar to the Senate amendment that not less than $310,000,000 should be provided for agriculture and rural development programs through Foreign Assistance Act funds and through Support for East European Development Act funds. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers continue to support international agriculture and rural development activities and direct AID to increase funding for these important programs. The conference agreement provides that, of the funds for agriculture and rural development programs, $30,000,000 should be provided for biotechnology research and development. The conference agreement does not include bill language for the University of Missouri-St. Louis International Laboratory for Tropical Agriculture biotechnology program (ILTAP), as proposed by the Senate. However, the managers support and urge AID to favorably consider $1,000,000 for ILTAP to train scientists from Southeast Asia in methods to fight diseases that threaten rice, tomatoes, and cassava which the managers believe will play a key role in stabilizing the food supply for the region. The conference agreement does not include bill language for the University of California, Davis, as proposed by the Senate. However, the managers support and urge AID to favorably consider $1,000,000 for the University of California, Davis to support research and to train foreign scientists in programs which address improving crop agriculture in Central Africa. The conference agreement does not include bill language for Tuskegee University, as proposed by the Senate. However, the managers support and urge AID to favorably consider $1,000,000 to establish a ``Center to Promote Biotechnology in International Agriculture'' at Tuskegee University. This center will promote extension and outreach aimed at policy makers, the media, farmers, and consumers in cooperation with local scientists. The emphasis should be to identify agricultural genetic technology applications crucial to combating hunger, malnutrition, and boosting low incomes in rural areas. The conferees agree that Marquette University's Les Aspin Center for Government, which has been carrying out training programs for Africans in democracy and leadership, should receive the same consideration as similar programs at other Universities mentioned in the Senate report. The conference agreement provides that not less than $2,300,000 should be made available for a core grant to the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), which is similar to the Senate amendment. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers strongly support the fertilizer-related research and development being conducted by IFDC and direct the Administrator of AID to make at least $4,000,000 available to IFDC, including not less than $2,300,000 for its core grant. The conference agreement provides not less than $5,200,000 for AmeriCares for the construction, rehabilitation, and operation of community-based primary healthcare facilities in Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. The conference agreement provides that $500,000 should be made available for support of the United States Telecommunications Training Institute. The Senate amendment included bill language mandating that such funds be made available for this purpose. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement provides that $17,000,000 should be made available for the American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA) program. The Senate amendment included bill language mandating that such funds be made available for this purpose. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers direct ASHA to give full consideration to grant proposals from all qualified institutions. These may include grant proposals for curriculum, staff support, and related expenses and for expansion of overseas facilities owned and operated by U.S. based, non-profit educational institutions. No regulation, statute, or congressional directive precludes ASHA funds from being utilized for these purposes. The conference agreement provides that not less than $2,000,000 should be made available to support an international media training center. The Senate amendment included bill language mandating that such funds be made available for this purpose. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement does not include bill language proposed in the Senate amendment which provided up to $7,000,000 for Carelift International. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers have addressed Carelift International in the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' section of the statement of the managers. The conference agreement does not include bill language providing up to $1,500,000 to develop and integrate education programs aimed at eliminating female genital mutilation (FGM), as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers direct the Secretary of State to determine the prevalence of the practice of FGM and the existence and enforcement of laws prohibiting this practice. The Secretary shall submit to the Committees on Appropriations, not later than March 1, 2001, these findings and recommendations on how the United States government can best work to eliminate this practice. The managers direct AID to make available $1,500,000 to develop and integrate into development strategies, where appropriate, educational programs aimed at eliminating FGM. Further, the managers direct that AID's fiscal year 2002 budget justification include a narrative regarding the agency's proposed budget and programs in this area. The managers continue to be concerned about worldwide trafficking of women and children and direct AID to provide not less than $2,500,000, including funds from under the heading ``Independent States'', to continue and expand these anti-trafficking programs. The managers strongly support the Collaborative Research Support Programs (CRSPs), as stated in the House and Senate reports. Prior to the submission of the report required by section 653 of the Foreign Assistance Act, AID is directed to consult with the Committees on Appropriations regarding the proposed allocation of agriculture, rural development and CRSPs resources. The conference agreement does not include bill language proposed in the Senate amendment providing $1,500,000 for Habitat for Humanity International for construction of housing in northern India. The House did not address this matter in bill language. The managers request that the Department of State coordinate with AID in determining the funding responsibility for long-term assistance for Tibetan refugees, including assistance to refugees residing in India. In this regard, the managers would support the proposal to fund the Tibetan Resettlement Project in Dehradum, India, consistent with Tibetan cultural practices. These funds should be in addition to those allocated for Tibetan refugees in ``Migration and Refugee Assistance''. The conference agreement does not include bill language proposed by the Senate amendment regarding microenterprise. The House bill did not address this matter. Microenterprise authorization is included in Public Law 106 309. The managers continue to believe that protecting biodiversity and tropical forests in developing countries is critical to the global environment and U.S. economic prosperity, especially for the agricultural and pharmaceutical industries. The managers direct AID to continue to work to increase overall biodiversity funding, as well as funding to the Office of Environment and Natural Resources, consistent with the House and Senate reports. Not later than 60 days after enactment of this Act, AID shall report to the Committees on Appropriations regarding the proposed allocation of resources for biodiversity on a bureau-by-bureau basis. The conference agreement does not include bill language regarding the Foundation for Environmental Security and Sustainability, as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers support and urge AID to favorably consider $2,500,000 for the Foundation for Environmental Security and Sustainability to support environmental threat assessments with interdisciplinary experts and academicians utilizing various technologies to address issues such as infectious diseases, and environmental indicators and warnings as they pertain to the security of a region. The managers support the work of Alfalit International, an educational nongovernmental organization dedicated to promotion of literacy, elementary education, and community development in Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. Alfalit's proven record during the past three decades has helped significantly reduce child and adult illiteracy throughout Latin America and Africa. The managers direct AID to provide $1,500,000 to Alfalit to develop and implement programs to combat adult illiteracy in countries in which AID operates. The managers encourage AID to support initiatives designed to promote child safety in developing countries such as those designed and carried out by the National Safe Kids Campaign. The managers believe that developing countries could benefit greatly from the 300 local programs already operating throughout the United States. The managers support and direct AID to provide up to $1,000,000 for the Center for Latin American Trade Expansion at the University of San Francisco to assist in the development of trade promotion initiatives at the USF Business School's Center for Economic Development. The managers commend the progress made by the Eastern European Real Property Program in the Europe and Eurasia Bureau since 1992. As the program expands into other regions as the International Real Property Program (IRPP), the Committee recommends that other AID regional bureaus and missions seriously consider cooperation with the IRPP as housing, shelter, and urban activities are included in country strategies. The managers encourage AID to fund the IRPP at a level not less than the fiscal year 1998 amount. Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund The managers direct that $12,000,000 be provided through the ``Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund'' to address the medical, rehabilitative, economic and social needs of war victims, particularly those who have been severely disabled from landmines and other unexploded ordnance. Of this amount, up to $10,000,000 is to be funded from the ``Development Assistance'' account and the ``Economic Support Fund.'' The balance should be funded from Office of Transition Initiatives resources, and with funds from the demining budget of the ``Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining and Related Programs'' account. Cyprus The conference agreement includes Senate language that provides not less than $15,000,000 of the funds made available under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support Fund'' for assistance for Cyprus for scholarships, administrative support of the scholarship program, bicommunal projects, and measures aimed at reunification of the island. The House bill did not address this matter. Lebanon The conference agreement includes language that provides that not less than $35,000,000 of the funds made available under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support Fund'' shall be made available for Lebanon to be used, among other programs, for scholarships and direct support of the American educational institutions in Lebanon. The language is similar to House and Senate language that provided that not less than $18,000,000 should be made available for Lebanon for these purposes. The managers are troubled by reports of the abduction to Lebanon of American children by estranged parents, and urge the Lebanese Government to assist in locating and returning these children to the United States. Burma The conference agreement includes Senate language that provides not less than $6,500,000 of the funds made available under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support Fund'' for assistance to support democracy activities in Burma and for other specified activities. These funds are made available notwithstanding any other provision of law, and shall be subject to the regular notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations. Of these funds, $3,500,000 should be derived from ``Economic Support Fund'' and $3,000,000 should be derived from ``Development Assistance''. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers are deeply concerned by recent actions taken by the SPDC to limit efforts by Aung San Suu Kyi to travel outside Rangoon to meet with members of the National League for Democracy (NLD). On two separate occasions, she has been detained or blocked from carrying out reasonable and legal political organization activities. During the past year, Aung San Suu Kyi has continued to call upon the junta to participate in a dialogue to bring about reconciliation and democracy. The response from the junta has been to escalate repression of democratic activists and further isolate and attempt to intimidate Aung San Suu Kyi. The conferees commend the NLD and its leadership for its continued courage and effort to restore democracy to Burma. In addition, the managers take note of the conditions under which Min Ko Niang continues to suffer. In 1989, he led students in non-violent protests against the military regime and was an outspoken supporter for democracy and human rights. For his actions, Min Ko Niang was arrested and ultimately sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in solitary confinement in the notorious Insein Prison. Min Ko Niang has been offered immediate release by the military junta in return for signing a statement renouncing the democracy movement and abandoning any future activity in politics. He has steadfastly refused to sign any document. In recognition of his courage, the managers direct that not less than $250,000 of the funds made available be dedicated to establishing a Min Ko Niang student scholarship and support fund. Conservation Fund The conference agreement includes a provision, which is similar to the Senate amendment, that not less than $4,000,000 should be made available for the Conservation Fund. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers direct that not less than $4,000,000 be provided equally from ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support Fund'' to support the preservation of habitats and related activities for endangered wildlife, including $1,500,000 for programs to protect orangutans in Indonesia, $1,500,000 for programs to protect gorillas in central Africa, and $1,000,000 for programs to protect cheetahs in Namibia. The managers direct AID to consult with the Committees in advance on the proposed uses of these funds. Private and Voluntary Organizations The conference agreement includes language proposed by the House and the Senate providing that funds appropriated for development assistance programs should be available to private and voluntary organizations at a level which is at least equivalent to the level provided in fiscal year 1995. The conference agreement also requires that the Administrator of AID inform the Committees on Appropriations prior to waiving the requirement that private voluntary organizations receive at least 20 percent of their total annual funding for international activities from sources other than the United States government. The House bill included a similar provision. International Disaster Assistance The conference agreement appropriates $165,000,000 for ``International Disaster Assistance'', as proposed by the House bill, instead of $220,000,000 as proposed by the Senate amendment. The managers recommend the establishment of a separate account for AID's Office of Transition Initiatives. Therefore, the conference agreement provides the necessary resources requested to meet all existing and projected disaster needs in fiscal year 2001. The managers are concerned by reports of quality problems in food aid commodities, including significant losses of micro-nutrients during production and field preparation, and believe that urgent action is needed to improve the quality of commodities provided to vulnerable populations and ensure the delivery of essential nutrients. The managers direct the Administrator of AID, after consultation with agriculture commodity producers and private voluntary organizations, to establish a plan and mechanism to ensure cooperation between AID and the Department of Agriculture to improve and assure the quality of commodities provided under this Act. Transition Initiatives The conference agreement appropriates $50,000,000 for a new account for Transition Initiatives to support AID's Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI). The House bill proposed $40,000,000 for this account. The Senate amendment included funding for OTI activities within the ``International Disaster Assistance'' account. The conference agreement does not preclude OTI from using resources transferred from other development and economic assistance funds in this Act. The conference agreement requires that AID submit a report to the Appropriations Committees not less than five days prior to beginning a new program of assistance. The House bill contained a similar provision. MICRO AND SMALL ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM ACCOUNT The conference agreement appropriates $1,500,000 for direct loans and loan guarantees and $500,000 for administrative expenses for micro and small enterprise activities as proposed by the House bill. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. DEVELOPMENT CREDIT PROGRAM ACCOUNT (including transfer of funds) The conference agreement appropriates $1,500,000 in a direct appropriation and up to $5,000,000 by transfer from funds made available under the heading ``Development Assistance'' for the cost of loans and loan guarantees for AID's Development Credit Program Account, as proposed by the House. In addition, the conference agreement provides $4,000,000 for administrative expenses which may be transferred to and merged with AID's ``Operating Expenses'' account, as proposed by the Senate. The House bill proposed $6,495,000 for administrative expenses. The managers endorse House report language directing the use of funds under this heading for an integrated municipal infrastructure and housing program in Costa Rica. OPERATING EXPENSES OF THE AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT The conference agreement appropriates $520,000,000, instead of $509,000,000 proposed by the House and $510,000,000 proposed by the Senate, for Operating Expenses of the Agency for International Development. The conference agreement prohibits the use of funds in this account to finance the construction or long-term lease of offices for use by AID unless the Administrator of AID reports in writing to the Appropriations Committees prior to the obligation of funds for such purposes, as proposed by the House. OPERATING EXPENSES OF THE AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL The conference agreement appropriates $27,000,000 for Operating Expenses of the Agency for International Development, Office of Inspector General, as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment proposed $25,000,000. OTHER BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE ECONOMIC SUPPORT FUND The conference agreement appropriates $2,295,000,000 for the Economic Support Fund instead of $2,208,900,000 as proposed by the House and $2,220,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement contains Senate language that provides not less than $840,000,000 for Israel and not less than $695,000,000 for Egypt, instead of not to exceed those sums as proposed by the House. In addition, Senate language is included that provides not less than $200,000,000 for the Commodity Import Program in Egypt. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement does not contain Senate language that would have authorized the use of up to the Egyptian pound equivalent of $50,000,000 for certain specified activities. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement includes language that provides that in exercising the authority to provide cash transfer assistance for Israel, the President shall ensure that Israel enters into a side letter agreement proportional to the fiscal year 1999 agreement. The conference agreement also includes language that provides that not less than $150,000,000 should be made available for assistance for Jordan. The Senate language would have mandated this level of support. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement does not contain Senate language that would have provided $2,000,000 for the American Center for Oriental Research, but the managers support this proposal and urge the Department of State and the Agency for International Development to give it favorable consideration. The conference agreement includes House language that states that not less than $12,000,000 should be made available for Mongolia. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. The conference agreement also includes House language that requires that funds obligated for regional or global programs shall be subject to the regular notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. The conference agreement provides that $5,000,000 should be made available for economic rehabilitation and related activities in the Aceh region of Indonesia. In May 2000, representatives of the Indonesian government and the Free Aceh Movement signed a Joint Understanding on a Humanitarian Pause for Aceh. Since signing the understanding representatives have met and agreed upon a number of projects which would address humanitarian and economic needs in Aceh. The managers support this dialogue and urge AID through the Office of Transition Initiatives to promptly provide assistance to projects agreed upon by both parties which further the objectives of the Joint Understanding and support a resolution to the conflict in Aceh. The managers encourage AID to support effective economic restructuring and decentralization programs, where feasible, in key regions throughout Indonesia, especially in the Moluccas and other areas of Eastern Indonesia. The conference agreement also includes language that provides that not less than $25,000,000 shall be made available for East Timor. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers strongly support AID's Economic Rehabilitation and Development Project, also known as the East Timor Coffee Project. The managers are concerned about reports that certain individuals in East Timor are seeking to restore monopolistic control of coffee production, that would jeopardize the livelihoods of thousands of farmers. The managers will continue to closely monitor this project. The managers are also aware of the importance of the Consolidated Fund for East Timor and expect that the United States will provide up to $4,500,000. The managers also urge AID to continue supporting activities that will improve the economy and establish democratic practices. The conference agreement also includes language similar to that from the Senate amendment that provides that up to $10,000,000 may be used, notwithstanding any other provision of law and subject to the regular notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations, to provide certain specified assistance to the National Democratic Alliance of Sudan. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement does not include section 597 of the Senate amendment regarding reporting requirements on Sudan. However, the managers direct that the Secretary of State report not later than March 1, 2001, describing the areas of Sudan which are open to Operation Lifeline Sudan (OLS) and those areas which are prohibited, and the reasons for these prohibitions; the extent of actual deliveries of assistance through OLS since January 1997; the areas of Sudan where the United States has provided assistance outside of OLS since January 1997, including the amount, extent and nature of that assistance; and an assessment of the humanitarian needs in areas of Sudan not served by OLS. The managers encourage USAID to provide an additional $1,000,000 in Economic Support Funds during fiscal year 2001 to support Phase II of the Haiti Health Systems 2004 Project. The additional resources will ensure that financial support to health providers operating under performance based contracts will not be reduced below fiscal year 2000 levels. The managers support and urge the State Department to favorably consider the allocation of at least $250,000 in funding for South Korean nongovernmental organizations involved in activities to promote democratization efforts in North Korea. Such funds should be programmed through the National Endowment for Democracy. The managers support the House report language providing $1,000,000 for the Reagan/Fascell Democracy Fellows Program of the National Endowment for Democracy. The managers support the budget request of $20,000,000 for assistance for Cambodia through nongovernmental organizations (NGO's) and local governments, as appropriate. No support would be available to or through the central government. The managers support assistance for such activities as health (especially to combat HIV/AIDS), education, environmental protection and democratization. In addition, the managers strongly support funding through NGO's to assist in efforts to halt illegal logging operations. The managers also endorse the House report language regarding the Cambodian Mine Action Center. Finally, the managers commend the work of the Documentation Center of Cambodia, which has painstakingly cataloged the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge. This evidence will be invaluable in any trials of Khmer Rouge leaders. The managers direct AID to provide adequate funding so the Documentation Center can continue its work. The managers direct that in addition to funds otherwise requested or made available for Yemen, up to $4,000,000 shall be dedicated to counter-terrorism training and investigations. The managers also direct that these funds not be made available until the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation certifies to the Committees on Appropriations that the Government of Yemen is fully cooperating with United States officials in the investigation of the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole. The managers also reiterate support for conflict resolution programs as described in the House and Senate reports, including funding for Seeds of Peace. INTERNATIONAL FUND FOR IRELAND The conference agreement appropriates $25,000,000 as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment contained no provision on this matter. The managers endorse the House and Senate report language in urging the application of equal opportunity principles through the International Fund for Ireland. The managers also endorse the Senate report language on the Northern Ireland Voluntary Trust, and the House report language on Project Children. ASSISTANCE FOR EASTERN EUROPE AND THE BALTIC STATES The conference agreement appropriates $600,000,000 instead of $535,000,000 as proposed by the House and $635,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement does not include minimum funding levels for Croatia and Montenegro as proposed by the Senate. However, the managers strongly support assistance for both countries. From funds appropriated under this heading both in this title and in title VI, as well as from funds made available in Public Law 106 52, the managers expect that not less $65,725,000 will be made available for Croatia and not less than $89,000,000 will be made available for Montenegro. The managers strongly support the announced intention of the Government of Croatia to fulfill several commitments, including cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia; an end to financial, political, security, and other support to Herceg Bosna; establishment of a swift timetable and cooperation in support of the safe return of refugees; and the acceleration of political, media, electoral, and anti-corruption reforms. The managers direct that the Secretary of State report to the Committees on Appropriations on the implementation of these goals prior to the obligation of funds for Croatia. The conference agreement contains language similar to that in the House bill that provides not less than $5,000,000 for the Baltic States. In addition, it contains language similar to that in the Senate amendment that imposes a ceiling of $80,000,000 on assistance to Bosnia and Herzegovina from funds appropriated under this heading and under the headings ``Economic Support Fund'' and ``International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement''. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement contains language similar to that in the House bill that prohibits funds for Kosova from this account and from ``Economic Support Fund'' and ``International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement'' to exceed 15 percent of the total resources pledged by all donors for calendar year 2001 for assistance for Kosova as of March 31, 2001. The Senate amendment would have prohibited funds for Kosova until the Secretary of State certified that the resources obligated and expended by the United States in Kosova did not exceed 15 percent of the total resources obligated and expended by all donors. The conference agreement does not contain House language that would also have limited funding for Kosova to $150,000,000. The conference agreement does not contain language from the Senate amendment that would have required that not less than 50 percent of the funds made available for Kosova be made available through non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The House bill did not address this matter. The managers direct that the Agency for International Development submit quarterly reports to the Committees on Appropriations regarding the organizations, activities and levels of support provided through local NGOs. The conference agreement includes language providing that $1,300,000 should be made available to support the National Albanian American Council's training program for Kosovar women. The Senate amendment would have mandated such support. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement does not contain Senate language regarding $250,000 for assistance to law enforcement officials in Kosova to better identify and respond to cases of trafficking in persons or $750,000 for a joint project developed by the University of Pristina and Dartmouth Medical School to help restore and improve educational programs at the University of Pristina Medical School. However, the managers support funding for these items, as well as for a proposal by Florida State University for $2,000,000 to fund a distance learning program of instruction in basic legal principles for students and professionals in Eastern Europe, and urge the Agency for International Development to favorably consider these proposals. In addition, the managers reiterate support for the Orava Project of the University of Northern Iowa as expressed in the House and Senate reports. The managers note the crucial importance of a democratic, multi-ethnic Macedonia to stability in the Balkans, as well as the contributions made by that nation during the Kosova air campaign. In view of these factors the managers strongly support adequate resources for assistance for Macedonia for fiscal year 2001. The managers note with great concern the delay in the implementation of critical nuclear safety upgrades at the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant in Bulgaria. The managers are further concerned that commercial disputes regarding the project may negatively affect U.S.-Bulgarian commercial relations. Therefore, the Secretary of State is urged to communicate to the Government of Bulgaria the need to expeditiously begin work on this project. The conference agreement includes language similar to that in the House bill that authorizes the use of local currencies generated by the assistance program in Bosnia for use in Eastern Europe consistent with the provisions of the Support for East European Democracy (SEED) Act of 1989 and the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. The managers expect the Agency for International Development to consult with the Committees on Appropriations on the proposed uses of these funds, and to submit a financial plan to the Committees following such consultations. The conference agreement contains House language regarding Presidential authority to withhold funds for Bosnia if the Bosnian Federation is not complying with the requirements of the Dayton Peace Accord regarding the removal of foreign troops, and has not terminated intelligence cooperation with Iranian officials. The Senate amendment contained similar language. The managers request the President to determine whether it would be appropriate to expunge by executive order certain references in the 1965 report of the Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice, entitled ``The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society,'' to Italian nationals. ASSISTANCE FOR THE INDEPENDENT STATES OF THE FORMER SOVIET UNION The conference agreement appropriates $810,000,000, instead of $740,000,000 as proposed by the House and $775,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The managers have included a ceiling of 8 percent on management costs instead of 7 percent as proposed by the Senate for nuclear safety activities. Further, the conference agreement places a limitation of 25 percent on the percentage of funds that may be allocated for any single country as proposed by the House. The conference agreement includes not less than $45,000,000, as proposed by the House, only for child survival, environmental and other health activities; programs to reduce the incidence of infectious diseases; and related activities. When AID is allocating funds to combat HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis in the Europe and Eurasia region, the managers direct that funds from regional accounts and the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund are to be provided in approximately equal amounts. The conference agreement also directs the Coordinator of Assistance to the Independent States to obligate not less than $1,500,000, primarily through locally-based and indigenous private voluntary organizations, to reduce trafficking in women and children. The managers urge the Coordinator to augment anti-trafficking projects by continuing and strengthening law enforcement and other activities to reduce all forms of violence against women. As proposed by the Senate, the conference agreement mandates the obligation of not less than $10,000,000, from this and the migration and refugee account, only for nongovernmental organizations providing humanitarian relief in Chechnya and Ingushetia. The managers strongly support regional cooperation efforts among the countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia. To further regional cooperation, the conference agreement continues the current six exemptions from the statutory restrictions on assistance to the Government of Azerbaijan. The managers include a provision that of the funds available for the Southern Caucasus region 15 percent, as proposed by the House, may be used for confidence-building measures and other activities related to the resolution of regional conflicts, notwithstanding any other provision of law, as proposed by the Senate. In support of regional reconciliation in the Caucasus, the managers believe that bringing together political leaders, academics and other individuals from Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan to discuss economic and cultural development, democracy building, and the needs of victims of conflict would be a vital step. Therefore, the managers direct that $900,000 be made available, from funds for the Southern Caucasus region for confidence-building measures for such initiatives, specifically, the International Peace Forum, to be held in Tbilisi, Georgia, in Spring 2001. The conference agreement reserves not less than $92,000,000 of the funds in this account for Georgia only and not less than $90,000,000 for Armenia only, instead of $94,000,000 and $89,000,000, respectively, as proposed by the Senate, and 12.5 percent for each as proposed by the House. The managers direct the Coordinator and AID to allocate not less than $25,000,000 of the funds made available for Georgia for security assistance for border and export control only and up to $5,000,000 for the training of municipal and regional officials in management of water resource, transportation, and other sectors operated or regulated by local governments in Georgia. The managers support and urge AID to favorably consider proposals by Fort Valley State University and the University of Louisville to participate in any absorptive capacity fund that may be established in the Republic of Georgia. The managers are aware that Armenia may be selected as the host site for Synchrotron Light Source Particle Accelerator project known as SESAME. The managers understand that the project will be used to advance regional interests in medicine, geology, industry, and electronics. In the event that the project is located in Armenia, the managers intend that $15,000,000 of the funds made available for Armenia should support this or a comparable project. The managers include bill language directing that $170,000,000 should be made available for Ukraine instead of $175,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. Of the amount for Ukraine, not less than $25,000,000 shall be provided for nuclear reactor safety programs. The managers have also included bill language directing that $5,000,000 should be provided for the Ukrainian Land and Resource Management Center. The conference agreement includes not less than $1,000,000 to increase analytical capacity in Ukraine in the area of healthcare and environmental health epidemiology, particularly concerning children with special needs and birth defects. This directive is based on the Senate amendment mandating funds to complete the ongoing study of the environmental causes of birth defects in Ukraine that is managed by the University of South Alabama. The conference agreement also includes not less than $3,250,000 for two regional initiatives, industrial sector management study tours conducted by Ohio's Center for Economic Initiatives and community telecommunications activities managed by the National Telephone Cooperative Association. The conference agreement includes conditions on assistance to the Government of the Russian Federation, with exceptions for specified humanitarian and security programs, with respect to its adherence in the Northern Caucasus to certain conventional arms and human rights conventions and agreements, as proposed by both the House and the Senate. The conference agreement provides that 60 percent of assistance to the Government of the Russian Federation would be withheld if the President is unable to certify to Congress that the Russian Government has terminated its ongoing cooperation with the Government of Iran with regard to certain nuclear and missile technology matters, and, with regard to Chechnya, is cooperating with international efforts to investigate allegations of war crimes and is in compliance with article V of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe. The managers reiterate language from the fiscal year 2000 Statement of the Managers with regard to other limitations on assistance, ``that assistance to combat infectious diseases, * * * support for regional and municipal governments, and partnerships between United States hospitals, universities, judicial training institutions and environmental organizations and counterparts in Russia should not be affected by this section.'' The conference agreement includes language providing not less than $20,000,00 for the Russian Far East. This matter was not addressed in the House bill. The managers recognize the successful entrepreneurship, management and democratization programs carried out during the past seven years in the Russian Far East by the University of Alaska's American-Russian Center. In addition to supporting continued University of Alaska programs in the Russian Far East, the managers direct that $3,000,000 be made available for a proposal by the University of Alaska to extend these efforts to Chukotka. In collaboration with Alaska Pacific University and two Alaska Native regional governments (the North Slope Borough and the Northwest Arctic Borough), the University of Alaska will provide training and technical assistance to strengthen Chukotka's economy, develop market driven systems, and improve social conditions, particularly for the indigenous peoples. The managers commend three programs in Russia that merit support from the ``Assistance for the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union'' account. The Replication of Lessons Learned (ROLL) program provides ongoing American support to help local Russian private volunteer organizations increase their management capacity to help solve pollution and related health problems, protect natural resources, and support economic growth. The managers urge that the ROLL and similar small grants programs that support women, children, and religious freedom be increased by at least 10 percent over current levels. In addition, the managers direct that not less than $250,000 should be provided to the Moscow School of Political Studies to support its successful efforts to teach democratic and free market principles to the emerging generation of Russia's political leaders and $400,000 be made available for the Cochran Fellowship Program to acquaint Russian farmers with American agricultural practices and to enhance U.S.-Russian trade and business relations. The Moscow School of Political Studies is making a concerted effort to teach democratic and free market principles to the emerging generation in Russia. It does this by conducting numerous seminars to expose young political leaders--of all parties, at both the federal and regional levels--to Western classical political and economic thought. The conference agreement also includes funds to support expansion of the Primary Healthcare Initiative in Ukraine, Georgia, and Russia of the World Council of Hellenes, and the United States-Russia Investment Fund, consistent with the funding levels specified in the House report. The managers commend the Fund for its promotion and development of a market economy in Russia and urge the State Department and AID allocate the maximum level practicable to the Fund in fiscal year 2001. The managers also support House language recommending the creation of a collaborative research program on issues of arms control verification for Russian and American scholars under the Expanded Threat Reduction Program. The managers also support and urge AID to favorably consider proposals to expand two existing programs: the Silk Road Seed Multiplication Program, based on the success of a similar program in Armenia; and the University of Arkansas Medical School-Volgograd Partnership program. The conference agreement does not reserve $6,000,000 from this account only for Mongolia, as proposed by the Senate. Language in the statement of the managers under the heading ``Economic Support Fund'' addresses this matter. INDEPENDENT AGENCY PEACE CORPS The conference agreement appropriates $265,000,000 instead of $258,000,000 as proposed by the House and $244,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. DEPARTMENT OF STATE International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement The conference agreement appropriates $325,000,000 for International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement instead of $305,000,000 as proposed by the House and $220,000,000 proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement requires that all anti-crime programs be subject to the regular notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations, as proposed by the House. The Senate did not address this matter. The conference agreement contains House language allowing the Department of State to utilize section 608 of the Foreign Assistance Act to receive excess property from other U.S. federal agencies for use in a foreign country. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. The managers endorse House report language regarding, and direct the State Department to favorably consider, Notre Dame University's program of human rights, democracy, and conflict resolution training in Colombia. The managers direct the Secretary of State to engage the government of Panama in good faith negotiations for the conclusion of an agreement which provides the U.S. military a forward operating location to support the use funds of under this heading. Migration and Refugee Assistance The conference agreement appropriates $700,000,000, instead of $645,000,000 as proposed by the House and $615,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement makes available $14,500,000, for administrative expenses, instead of $14,000,000 as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House proposed $14,852,000 for administrative expenses. The conference agreement also includes Senate language, not included in the House bill, that provides not less than $60,000,000 for refugees from the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe and other refugees resettling in Israel. The conference agreement provides that funds appropriated under this heading to support activities and programs conducted by the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees shall be made available after reporting at least 5 days in advance to the Committees on Appropriations. This reporting requirement may be waived for any obligation if failure to do so would pose a substantial risk to human health or welfare. In the event that the waiver is exercised, a report to the Committees on Appropriations shall be provided as early as practicable, but in no event later than 5 days after such obligation. The managers support the efforts of the Department of State to remove anti-Semitic content in textbooks and curricula used in schools administered by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). The managers are concerned by reports that anti-Semitic, anti-Israel rhetoric has been included in new Palestinian school textbooks. Accordingly, the managers direct the Secretary of State to report in writing to the Committees on Appropriations not later than February 1, 2001, on any such anti-Semitic, anti-Israel content in the new textbooks and on initiatives to redress such content in UNRWA schools. United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund The conference agreement appropriates $15,000,000, as proposed by the Senate amendment. The House bill proposed $12,500,000. Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining and Related Programs The conference agreement appropriates $311,600,000 instead of $241,600,000 as proposed by the House and $215,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The managers intend that funds in this account be allocated as follows: [In thousands of dollars] Nonproliferation and Disarmament Fund $15,000 Export control assistance 19,100 International Atomic Energy Agency 47,000 CTBT Preparatory Commission 21,500 Korean Peninsula Economic Development Organization (KEDO) 55,000 Anti-terrorism assistance 38,000 Terrorist Interdiction Program 4,000 Demining 40,000 Small arms destruction 2,000 Science Centers 35,000 Lockerbie trial costs 15,000 Nonproliferation contingency 20,000 311,600 The conference agreement does not provide funds for a proposed Center for Antiterrorism and Security Training (CAST), both due to budget constraints and due to the fact that funding for domestic law enforcement training is not under the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs. Although the proposal for CAST includes training for foreign law enforcement purposes, the managers believe that these needs can be met by training at existing facilities and encourage the Department of State to coordinate with the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) and the Department of Justice. To the extent that other Federal entities were seeking to participate in the proposed training facility, such needs should be pursued through the proper subcommittees of jurisdiction. The managers intend that $5,000,000 of the funds allocated for export control assistance be made available for equipment for Malta to enable that country to monitor shipments transiting the Malta Freeport. This equipment will assist the Government of Malta in its efforts to prevent the transshipment of narcotics, weapons of mass destruction, and other illegal material through the Freeport. As evidence in the Lockerbie trial has illustrated, preventing such shipments is in the direct national security interest of the United States. In addition, the managers strongly support the allocation of up to $8,000,000 for export control activities along Jordan's borders with Iraq and Syria, including the procurement of mobile vans and trucks that are capable of monitoring shipments of goods into Jordan. The conference agreement includes House language that authorizes a contribution to the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) Preparatory Commission, and requires that the Secretary of State inform the Committees on Appropriations at least 20 days prior to the obligation of funds for such Commission. The conference agreement does not include Senate language on this matter. However, the managers endorse the Senate report language directing that a report be provided to the Committees on Appropriations on the anticipated use of funds made available to the Commission, including an identification of all donors and any directives or restrictions associated with their contribution; a detailed explanation of expenditures in 2000 and 2001, including sites where the United States has provided assistance to third party nations; and a copy of the Commission's 2001 budget. The conference agreement includes Senate language authorizing the use of funds for the destruction of small arms, and providing that $40,000,000 should be used for demining activities including not to exceed $500,000 for administrative expenses. The House bill did not address these matters. DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY International Affairs Technical Assistance The conference agreement includes $6,000,000 for the International Affairs Technical Assistance program of the Department of the Treasury instead of $5,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $2,000,000 as proposed by the House. Debt Restructuring The conference agreement appropriates $238,000,000 for debt restructuring as proposed by the House instead of $75,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The managers include not less than $13,000,000 only for implementation of title V of the Foreign Assistance Act. The remainder of the amount provided for debt restructuring may be used at the Administration's discretion, subject to certain reporting and notification requirements, either for bilateral debt restructuring or for United States contributions to the Heavily Indebted Poor Country (HIPC) Trust Fund administered by the World Bank. The conference agreement includes language that countries benefiting from U.S. contributions to the HIPC Trust Fund agree not to accept additional market-rate loans during a ``time out on new debt'' moratorium. The moratorium for 24 months, instead of 30 months as proposed by the House, would apply only to new lending from MDBs whose bad loans to the beneficiary poor country are being paid off by the HIPC Trust Fund. The managers have not included a House provision that would have established a similar moratorium for 9 months with regard to concessional or ``soft'' loans. The managers have included bill language requiring that the Secretary of the Treasury include a listing of all concessional loans that are under consideration by multilateral development banks for each HIPC beneficiary country. The extent and amount of proposed new debt will be a factor as the Committees consult with Treasury regarding the specific use of funds provided for forgiveness of old debt. The managers agree with the policy with regard to HIPC, issued by the Development Committee of the IMF and World Bank at recent meetings in Prague, that: ``further restraint on concessional lending may also be warranted, including through greater recourse to grant financing.'' The matter of new concessional lending to HIPC beneficiaries is addressed in bill language under the heading ``Contribution to the International Development Association (IDA)''. The conferees encourage all bilateral creditors to provide debt reduction to heavily indebted poor countries and that special consideration be given to the unique circumstances of selected bilateral creditors such as Costa Rica. The managers have also included language proposed by the House that prohibits U.S. payments to the HIPC Trust Fund for certain countries. The limitation affects any country credibly reported to be engaged in a pattern of gross violations of internationally recognized human rights or to be engaged in a war or civil conflict that undermines its ability to comply with HIPC conditions. The Senate amendment did not address these matters. The conferees have included a provision that requires the Secretary of the Treasury to consult with the Committees on Appropriations concerning which countries and international financial institutions are expected to benefit from a United States contribution to the HIPC Trust Fund administered by the World Bank during the fiscal year, and to inform the Committees not less than fifteen days in advance of the signature of an agreement by the United States to make payments to the HIPC Trust Fund of amounts for such countries and institutions. It is the understanding of the conferees that the Secretary of the Treasury will update the list of countries and institutions if new countries or institutions are expected to benefit from U.S. contributions to the HIPC Trust Fund during the fiscal year, and that such updating will be provided in advance of informing the Committees of the proposed signature of an agreement to make payments to the HIPC Trust Fund with respect to any such new country or institution. The conference agreement further requires full documentation of any commitment by a HIPC beneficiary country regarding redirection of domestic resources to additional poverty alleviation and economic growth measures, as proposed by the House. The Committees will closely monitor the implementation of such commitments, taking into account the findings of the Department of the Treasury, religious groups that have advocated the HIPC initiative and knowledgeable non-governmental organizations. TITLE III--MILITARY ASSISTANCE INTERNATIONAL MILITARY EDUCATION AND TRAINING The conference agreement appropriates $55,000,000 as proposed by the Senate instead of $47,250,000 as proposed by the House. The conference agreement also contains House language not in the Senate amendment that provides that up to $1,000,000 may be available until expended. The conference agreement includes House language that provides that Expanded International Military Education and Training (E IMET) for Indonesia is subject to notification, and Senate language that provides that Expanded IMET for Guatemala is subject to notification. The conference agreement does not include House language that conditioned funding for the School of the Americas upon certifications by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State, or that imposed certain reporting requirements. The Senate amendment did not address these matters. The managers note that the relevant authorizing committees are addressing the future status of the School of the Americas as part of H.R. 4205, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2001. As part of the increase in funding for this account, the managers would support increasing the allocation for Malta from $100,000 to $200,000 for fiscal year 2001 in order to support that country's needs for the professional training of its armed forces. The managers support and urge the Departments of State and Defense to favorably consider $150,000 from this account for development for a peacekeeping initiative at the Naval Postgraduate School. This education program would focus on the creation of a security environment within which economic and political development can accelerate, thereby facilitating the withdrawal of United States and/or other peacekeeping forces. The program would eventually provide foreign civilians and military personnel with the specialized expertise, problem-solving skills and management tools to conduct peacekeeping operations that have an exit strategy. FOREIGN MILITARY FINANCING PROGRAM The conference agreement appropriates $3,545,000,000 instead of $3,519,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $3,268,000,000 as proposed by the House. The conference agreement includes Senate language that provides not less than $1,980,000,000 for grants for Israel and not less than $1,300,000,000 for grants for Egypt, instead of not to exceed those sums as proposed by the House. The conference agreement also includes language that provides that not less than $520,000,000 shall be available for procurement in Israel of defense goods and services. The House and Senate had similar language on this matter, but the House bill would not have mandated this level. The conference agreement deletes House language expressing the Sense of Congress on the proposed Phalcon sale by Israel to China. The managers commend the decision by the Government of Israel to cancel the sale in view of the threat posed to United States national security interests. The conference agreement includes language that provides that not less than $75,000,000 should be made available for assistance for Jordan. The Senate amendment would have mandated this level of assistance. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement includes language similar to that in the Senate amendment regarding an interest bearing account for Egypt, except that the requirement for a notification is replaced by language that requires that the Committees on Appropriations be informed at least 10 days prior to the obligation of funds earned on the interest from funds deposited in said account. The House bill would have allowed for the early disbursal of fiscal year 2001 outlays for Egypt. The conference agreement includes not less than $8,500,000 for Tunisia, of which not less than $5,000,000 shall be from drawdowns of defense articles, services, and education and training. The Senate amendment provided $10,000,000 and $4,000,000, respectively, for these activities. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement provides that not less than $8,000,000 shall be provided for Georgia, of which not less than $4,000,000 shall be from drawdowns of defense articles, services, and education and training. The Senate amendment mandated $12,000,000 and $5,000,000, respectively, for these activities. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement also includes language that allocates $3,000,000 in grant funds for Malta. The conference agreement does not include Senate language that would have authorized the transfer by Turkey to Georgia of not to exceed $10,000,000 in defense articles sold by the United States to Turkey. The House bill did not address this matter. The conference agreement provides for a limitation of $33,000,000 for administrative expenses as proposed by the Senate, rather than $30,495,000 as proposed by the House. It also includes House language that provides that no Partnership for Peace funds may be made available to a non-NATO country except through the regular notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations. PEACEKEEPING OPERATIONS The conference agreement appropriates $127,000,000 instead of $117,900,000 as proposed by the House and $85,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The managers urge the State Department to provide support to the Special War Crimes Court for Sierra Leone, to bring to justice those responsible for the mutilation and slaughter of innocent people there. TITLE IV--MULTILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS Global Environment Facility (GEF) The conference agreement appropriates $108,000,000 for the Global Environment Facility instead of $50,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $35,800,000 as proposed by the House. Contribution to the International Development Association The conference agreement appropriates $775,000,000 instead of $750,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $566,600,000 as proposed by the House. The managers have agreed to language, similar to that proposed by the House, regarding the provision of grant assistance by the International Development Association to HIPC beneficiaries. The managers endorse Senate report language concerning the need for further reform of procedures to address employee grievances at the World Bank, IMF, and other financial institutions. Contribution to the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency The conference agreement appropriates $10,000,000 for paid-in capital issued by the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency, instead of $4,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $4,900,000 as proposed by the House. Approval for subscription to the appropriate amount of callable capital is also included in the conference agreement. Contribution to the Inter-American Investment Corporation The conference agreement appropriates $25,000,000 for the United States contribution to the Inter-American Investment Corporation, instead of $10,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $8,000,000 as proposed by the House. Contribution to the Enterprise for the Americas Multilateral Investment Fund The conference agreement appropriates $10,000,000 for the United States contribution to the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) at the Inter-American Development Bank, as proposed by the House. The Senate did not address this matter. The MIF was intended to be a cutting-edge instrument for expanding the private sector's contribution to growth in Latin America. The managers request the Secretary of the Treasury to prepare and submit to the Committees by April 6, 2001, an in-depth report on the MIF prepared by private sector entrepreneurs from the U.S. and Latin America. The report should evaluate the portfolio of the MIF with respect to private sector growth, including, but not limited to, the status of project execution and value added, and include strategic recommendations for achieving greater impact and expediting project selection and approval. Contribution to the Asian Development Fund The conference agreement appropriates $72,000,000 for the Asian Development Fund, as proposed by the House, instead of $100,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. Contribution to the African Development Bank The conference agreement appropriates $6,100,000 for paid-in capital issued by the African Development Bank as proposed by the Senate, instead of $3,100,000 as proposed by the House. Approval for subscription to the appropriate amount of callable capital is also included in the conference agreement. Contribution to the African Development Fund The conference agreement appropriates $100,000,000 for the African Development Fund instead of $72,000,000, as proposed by the House and the Senate. Contribution to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development The conference agreement appropriates $35,778,717 for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, as proposed by the House, instead of $35,779,000, as proposed by the Senate. Approval for subscription to the appropriate amount of callable capital is also included in the conference agreement. International Fund for Agricultural Development The conference agreement appropriates $5,000,000 for the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), as proposed by the House. The Senate included a total of $5,000,000 for IFAD within the ``International Organizations and Programs'' and ``Development Assistance'' accounts. International Organizations and Programs The conference agreement provides $186,000,000, instead of $183,000,000 as proposed by the House and $288,000,000 as proposed by Senate. The final appropriation level does not include $110,000,000 provided for UNICEF, and up to $50,000,000 for the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), which are included under the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' account and $2,500,000 for IFAD, which is included under the prior heading. The conference agreement continues current law indicating that $5,000,000 should be made available for the World Food Program, as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment included similar language. The managers support $5,000,000 from this account for the United States contribution to the United Nations Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture Program, as recommended in the Senate Report, and $90,000,000 for the United Nations Development Program, as recommended in the House Report. TITLE V--GENERAL PROVISIONS (Note: If House and Senate language is identical except for a different section number or minor technical differences, the section is not discussed in the Statement of Managers.) Sec. 505. Limitation on Representational Allowances This section retains reference to the Inter-American Foundation as proposed by the House and as contained in current law. The Senate amendment proposed deleting this reference. Sec. 508. Military Coups The conference agreement includes House language that specifies that funds shall be prohibited for any country whose duly elected head of government is deposed by decree or military coup. The Senate amendment included similar language. Sec. 510. Deobligation/Reobligation Authority The conference agreement deletes Senate language that would have authorized deobligation/reobligation authority for funds that are certified pursuant to section 1311 of the Supplemental Appropriations Act, 1955. Sec. 511. Availability of Funds The conference agreement deletes House language that provided that the final proviso under title VI of the fiscal year 2000 appropriations Act for foreign operations, export financing, and related programs shall be null and void. Similar language is already contained in Public Law 106 52. Sec. 512. Limitation on Assistance to Countries in Default The conference agreement is the same as current law, as proposed by the House. The Senate proposed to restrict the limitation to a defaulting government instead of a defaulting country. Sec. 515. Notification Requirements The conference agreement is the same as current law. The Senate proposed a technical change. Sec. 517. Independent States of the Former Soviet Union The conference agreement is the same as current law, except that the special notification requirement applies to Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, and Georgia only. The House bill deleted a current provision relating to territorial integrity and required special notification for Russia and Ukraine only. The Senate amendment was essentially the same as current law. Sec. 520. Special Notification Requirements The conference agreement adds ``Ethiopia'', ``Eritrea'', and ``Zimbabwe'' as proposed by the House bill and retains ``Pakistan'' as proposed by the Senate amendment, to the list of countries subject to the special notification procedures of this section. The managers are encouraged that on June 8, 2000, a cease-fire agreement was signed by Ethiopia and Eritrea and that efforts are underway to reach a permanent settlement of the border conflict. Sec. 522. Child Survival and Disease Prevention Activities The conference agreement authorizes AID to use $16,000,000 from the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' for technical experts from other government agencies, universities, and other institutions. The Senate proposed $10,000,000 and the House $10,500,000 for this purpose. The managers have increased this authority on an interim basis in order to accelerate implementation of the expanded HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis activities. AID is directed to replace the additional temporary personnel as rapidly as possible with AID direct hire OE-funded personnel. As the purpose of the general provision is to support effective implementation of the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund, the conference agreement does not include a reference to family planning, as proposed by the Senate. Sec. 525. Authorization Requirement The conference agreement includes language that provides that funds appropriated by this Act may be obligated and expended notwithstanding section 10 of Public Law 91 672 and section 15 of the State Department Basic Authorities Act of 1956, as provided in the House bill and the Senate amendment. However, it includes new language exempting the accounts ``International Military Education and Training'' and ``Foreign Military Financing Program'' from these waivers. Authorizations of appropriations for these accounts have been enacted into law as part of Public Law 106 280. Sec. 526. Democracy in China The conference agreement includes Senate language that authorizes the use of funds from the account ``Economic Support Fund'' for the support of nongovernmental organizations located outside of China to foster democracy and rule of law. The House bill only authorized funds to foster democracy. The conference agreement includes language that allows funds from this Act or from prior acts making appropriations for Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs, that are made available for the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) to be made available notwithstanding any other provision of law or regulation. The purpose of this language is to allow for the expeditious and orderly obligation of funds through the Endowment for support of nongovernmental organizations overseas. This provision would become effective upon enactment. The House bill and the Senate amendment contained language that would have made funds for NED available consistent with certain decisions of the Comptroller General and in accordance with Office of Management and Budget Circular A 122. The conference agreement includes language that authorizes, notwithstanding any other provision of law, not to exceed $2,000,000 from the Economic Support Fund to support certain activities in Tibetan communities. The House bill contained similar language; the Senate amendment did not address this matter. The conference agreement also contains House language that amends current law to make available $1,000,000 in previously appropriated funds for the Jamestown Foundation for a project to disseminate information and support research about the People's Republic of China. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. Sec. 528. Report on the Implementation of Supplemental Appropriations The conference agreement includes House language that requires four quarterly reports on the use of funds appropriated under title VI of the fiscal year 2000 appropriations Act for foreign operations, export financing, and related programs. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. Sec. 530. Peru The conference agreement includes language requiring the Secretary of State to determine and report to the Committees on Appropriations regarding progress toward elections and improvements in democracy and rule of law. The Senate amendment contained a similar provision. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers direct the Secretary of State to submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations not later than 30 days after the date of enactment of this Act, evaluating United States, political, economic, and military relations with Peru in accordance with P.L. 106 186. Sec. 535. Authorities for the Peace Corps, International Fund for Agricultural Development, Inter-American Foundation, and African Development Foundation The conference agreement maintains current law as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment proposed deleting the reference to the Inter-American Foundation. Sec. 537. Clean Coal Technology The conference agreement includes Senate language encouraging the use of clean coal technology in environmental and energy infrastructure programs, projects and activities. In addition, the managers encourage the Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of State, Secretary of Energy and Administrator of the Agency for International Development to promote the use of other clean and renewable energy technologies. The House bill did not address this matter. Sec. 538. Special Authorities The conference agreement deletes prior year language proposed by the Senate that exempts humanitarian assistance for Romania and the peoples of Kosova from any other provision of law. This language is no longer necessary. The conference agreement also includes House language that adds ``Economic Support Fund'' to the list of accounts under which certain activities may be undertaken notwithstanding any other provision of law. The managers have expanded authority in current law regarding AID's use of personal services contractors in Washington so that additional bureaus and offices within AID may utilize, on a temporary basis, such contractors. This authority is intended to allow AID to meet relatively short-term requirements for technical and management personnel in limited situations where natural disasters, recent foreign policy decisions, or other unforeseen events result in rapid increases in assistance levels and where other options, such as the use of existing staff or hiring and training of new staff, cannot be implemented quickly or effectively to meet the unforeseen management needs. Other than under exceptional circumstances, this authority should not be used to satisfy requirements with durations greater than two years. The Bureau of Management is directed to report to the Committees not later than December 15, 2000, and March 15, 2001, on the use of personal service contractors under this and other authorities. Sec. 539. Policy on Terminating the Arab League Boycott of Israel and Normalizing Relations with Israel The conference agreement includes House language on this matter. The Senate amendment did not include subsections (2) and (3) of the House general provision, dealing with the decision by the Arab League to reinstate the boycott of Israel in 1997, and calling on the League to immediately rescind its decision; and deleted language from subsection (4)(C) regarding a report on the specific steps that should be taken by the President to ``expand the process of normalizing ties between Arab League countries and Israel''. Sec. 540. Administration of Justice Activities The conference agreement contains language identical to current law, but changes the name of this section, as proposed by the House bill. The Senate amendment proposed repeal of parts of section 534 of the Foreign Assistance Act. Sec. 541. Eligibility for Assistance The conference agreement includes language regarding eligibility of assistance provided under this Act as proposed by the House bill. The conference agreement does not include a modification, as proposed in the Senate amendment, regarding the prohibition on assistance to countries that violate internationally recognized human rights. Sec. 543. Ceilings and Earmarks The conference agreement includes Senate language that restores prior year language regarding earmarks and minimum funding levels. The House bill did not address this matter. Sec. 552. War Crimes Tribunals Drawdown The conference agreement includes language proposed by the Senate that provides a sunset date of September 30, 2001, for certain reports required of the Secretary of State under this section. Sec. 555. Prohibitions on Payment of Certain Expenses The conference agreement includes language identical to current law, as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment deleted references to the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund''. Sec. 558. Assistance for Haiti The conference agreement includes language similar to that proposed by the House which prohibits additional assistance to the central government of Haiti until the Committees on Appropriations are in receipt of reports regarding free and fair elections and regarding Haitian government cooperation in illicit drug trafficking. The Senate amendment placed conditions on aid to Haiti regarding free and fair elections, but did not address illicit drug trafficking. The managers do not intend that assistance to combat infectious diseases, child survival, support for regional and municipal governments, and partnerships between United States hospitals, universities, non-governmental organizations and counterparts in Haiti would be affected by this section. Sec. 559. Requirement for Disclosure of Foreign Aid in Report of Secretary of State The conference agreement includes language proposed by the Senate that makes a technical modification to current law. Sec. 561. Haiti Coast Guard The conference agreement includes language proposed in the House bill regarding the purchase of defense goods and articles by Haiti for its Coast Guard. The Senate amendment proposed allowing the Haitian National Police to be eligible to purchase these items. Sec. 564. Restrictions on Assistance to Countries Providing Sanctuary to Indicted War Criminals The conference agreement includes Senate language that adds assistance for refugees and internally displaced persons to the exemptions to the sanctions of this section, and Senate language regarding communities in which an indicted war criminal is residing. Sec. 565. Discrimination Against Minority Religious Faiths in the Russian Federation The conference agreement changes the title of this section, as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House bill proposed the title, ``To Prohibit Foreign Assistance to the Government of the Russian Federation Should It Enact Laws Which Would Discriminate Against Minority Religious Faiths in the Russian Federation''. Sec. 568. Assistance for the Middle East The conference agreement contains language similar to the House bill that imposes a spending ceiling of $5,241,150,000 on specified assistance for the Middle East. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. Sec. 571. Foreign Military Training Report The conference agreement includes House language requiring a joint report by the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense on all overseas military training (excluding military sales) provided to non-NATO foreign military personnel under programs administered by the Departments of Defense and State during 2000 and 2001, including those proposed for 2001. The language specifies the scope of the report, and allows for a classified annex, if deemed necessary and appropriate. The report shall be due no later than March 1, 2001. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. Sec. 572. Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization The conference agreement includes House language on this matter, except that the ceiling on funding for the Korean Peninsula Economic Development Organization (KEDO) is $55,000,000 rather than $35,000,000 as in the House bill and the Senate amendment. The House language conditions funding for KEDO on a certification that (1) the parties to the Agreed Framework have taken and continue to take demonstrable steps to implement the Joint Declaration on Denuclearization of Korea; (2) the parties have taken and continue to take demonstrable steps to pursue the North-South dialogue; (3) North Korea is complying with all provisions of the Agreed Framework; (4) North Korea has not significantly diverted assistance for purposes for which it was not intended; (5) there is no credible evidence North Korea is seeking to develop or acquire the capability to enrich uranium, or any additional capability to reprocess spent nuclear fuel; (6) North Korea is complying with its obligations regarding access to suspect underground construction; (7) there is no credible evidence North Korea is engaged in a nuclear weapons program, including efforts to acquire, develop, test, produce, or deploy such weapons, and (8) the United States is continuing to make significant progress on eliminating the North Korean ballistic missile threat, including further missile tests and its ballistic missile exports. The language allows for the President to waive the certification requirements of this section if he determines that it is vital to the national security interests of the United States, 30 days after a written submission to the appropriate congressional committees. It also requires a report from the Secretary of State on the fiscal year 2002 budget request for KEDO, with certain specified information to be included in such report. The Senate amendment contained similar language. Sec. 573. African Development Foundation The conference agreement provides that funds to grantees of the Foundation may be invested pending expenditure and that interest earned must be used for the same purpose for which the grant was made. Further, this section allows the Foundation's board of directors, in exceptional circumstances, to waive the existing $250,000 project limitation, subject to reporting to the Committees on Appropriations. Sec. 575. Iraq Opposition The conference agreement contains language similar to that contained in title II of the Senate amendment specifying that not less than $25,000,000 from the account ``Economic Support Fund'' shall be made available for programs benefiting the Iraqi people, including not less than $12,000,000 which should be provided for certain specified humanitarian assistance, and not less than $6,000,000 which should be provided to the Iraq National Congress Support Foundation or the Iraqi National Congress for radio and television broadcasting inside Iraq. It also states that the President should submit a plan within 60 days of enactment regarding the use of the funds recommended in this section. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers strongly support assistance for Kurdish Human Rights Watch for its programs to provide humanitarian assistance to the Kurdish people in northern Iraq. The conference agreement also includes language similar to that in the House bill that provides authority to use funds to support efforts to bring about political transition in Iraq, to be made available only to Iraqi opposition groups designated under the Iraq Liberation Act, and not to exceed $2,000,000 to be made available for groups and activities seeking the prosecution of Saddam Hussein and other Iraqi officials for war crimes. No funds may be made available for administrative costs of the Department of State. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. Sec. 576. Agency for International Development Budget Justification The conference agreement instructs the Agency for International Development to submit its 2002 budget in a transparent and simplified format more useful to the Committees, as proposed by the House. In particular, the budget justification document should prominently display data and narratives aggregating resources obligated or requested for all Agency-managed programs and activities that are traditionally of special interest to Congress and the Executive branch. The Senate did not address this matter. Sec. 577. Kyoto Protocol The conference agreement prohibits funds in this Act to be used to propose or issue rules, regulations, decrees, or orders for the purpose of implementation, or preparation for implementation of the Kyoto Protocol, as proposed by the Senate. Sec. 579. Indonesia The conference agreement provision regarding military assistance to Indonesia is similar to current law. The House bill and the Senate amendment included identical conditions under which a Presidential report and determination could result in a resumption of military assistance to Indonesia that is funded in this bill. The restrictions on assistance include both IMET and Foreign Military Financing programs, instead of FMF only, as proposed by the House bill. The managers are concerned about the more than 100,000 East Timorese refugees still trapped in West Timor. This severe humanitarian situation has been exacerbated by ongoing harassment of aid workers by armed gangs, and recurring border incursions into East Timor by West Timor-based militias. These attacks have resulted in the deaths of several UN aid workers, as well as refugees. The managers strongly urge the Secretaries of Defense and State to press the government of Indonesia to fulfill its commitments to disarm and disband militia groups, end military and financial support for these groups, and bring militia leaders to justice. The managers note that, as provided in this section, resumption of security assistance to Indonesia is conditioned, in part, on the armed forces of Indonesia providing safe passage to refugees returning from West Timor. Sec. 580. Man and the Biosphere The conference agreement prohibits funds for the United Nations Man in the Biosphere Program and the World Heritage Fund, as proposed by the House bill. The Senate did not address this matter. Sec. 581. Taiwan Reporting Requirement The conference agreement includes language that requires that not less than 30 days prior to the next round of arms talks between the United States and Taiwan, the President shall consult, on a classified basis, with appropriate Congressional leaders and committee chairman and ranking members regarding the following matters: (1) Taiwan's requests for purchase of defense articles and defense services during the pending round of arms talks; (2) the Administration's assessment of the legitimate defense needs of Taiwan in light of those requests; and (3) the decision-making process used by the Executive Branch to consider those requests. The House bill and the Senate amendment contained language requiring the Secretary of State to consult with the appropriate committees and leadership of Congress to devise a mechanism to provide for Congressional input prior to making any determination on the sale or transfer of defense articles and services to Taiwan. Sec. 582. Restriction on United States Assistance for Certain Reconstruction Efforts in Central Europe The conference agreement contains House language that provides that to the maximum extent possible, assistance to Eastern Europe and the Baltic States should be used for the procurement of American goods and services. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. Sec. 583. Restrictions on Assistance to Governments Destabilizing Sierra Leone The conference agreement prohibits assistance to any government for which the Secretary of State has credible evidence that such government has, within the previous six months, provided military support or which has assisted illicit diamond trading which benefits the Revolutionary United Front in Sierra Leone. This section is identical to the House bill. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. Sec. 584. Voluntary Separation Incentives The conference agreement provides for the payment of voluntary separation incentives to AID employees for the purpose of eliminating positions and functions at AID, as proposed by the House bill and the Senate amendment. Sec. 585. Contributions to the United Nations Population Fund As proposed by the House bill, the conference agreement provides that not more than $25,000,000 from the ``International Organizations and Programs'' account shall be made available for the United Nations Fund for Population Activities. This assistance is subject to a number of conditions regarding UNFPA activities. The Senate amendment contained a similar provision. Sec. 586. Indochinese Parolees The conference agreement includes language similar to the Senate amendment which provides authority for the Attorney General to adjust the status of certain Indochinese parolees to lawful permanent residence. The House bill did not address this matter. The purpose of this provision is to address an anomaly in current law, which requires that such persons have first been denied refugee status in order to be eligible to adjust status. Since these individuals were paroled into the United States as part of U.S. government programs at a time when their eligibility for refugee status was never considered, the managers believe that this provision is both necessary and appropriate. The provision is limited in scope to apply only to parolees who are natives or citizens of Vietnam, Laos or Cambodia, who were inspected and paroled into the United States prior to October 1, 1997, and who are otherwise eligible to receive an immigrant visa. The managers note that the potential beneficiaries of this provision are a fixed number of individuals who were lawfully admitted into the United States. While the conference agreement includes a ceiling on the number of aliens who may benefit from this provision, the managers recognize that it is difficult to determine precisely the number of potential beneficiaries and that such number may need to be revised in the future to ensure that no eligible alien is arbitrarily denied adjustment of status. Sec. 587. American Churchwomen in El Salvador The conference agreement includes language regarding the murder of four American churchwomen in El Salvador, as proposed in the House bill. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. Sec. 588. Procurement and Financial Management Reform The conference agreement includes a Senate provision withholding 10 percent of the funds made available for international financial institutions until the Secretary of the Treasury certifies that a number of procurement and financial management reforms are being implemented. The House bill included a similar provision, adding a requirement relating to funding of third-party procurement monitoring. The conference agreement includes a provision that requires that, prior to disbursement of the final 10 percent of the United States portion or payment to an international financial institution as defined in section 588, the Secretary of the Treasury certify, inter alia, that the institution is taking steps to establish an independent fraud and corruption investigative organization or office or an equivalent mechanism. The managers agree that, for purposes of this provision, an investigatory organization, office, or equivalent investigatory mechanism will be considered ``independent,'' notwithstanding the fact that it is part of the international financial institution, if it is autonomous from the institution's procurement process and the office or individual being investigated and reports directly to the head of the institution or his designee, so long as such designee has no operational or supervisory responsibilities for the subject of the investigation. Sec. 589. Commercial Leasing of Defense Articles The conference agreement includes Senate language that authorizes commercial leasing rather than sales of defense articles for certain specified countries under certain conditions. The House bill did not address this matter. Sec. 590. Foreign Military Expenditures Report The conference agreement repeals section 511(b) of 1993 Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Appropriations Act regarding matters to be included in the annual human rights report to Congress by the Secretary of State, as proposed by the Senate. The House bill did not address this matter. The managers request that the Secretary of the Treasury submit a one-time report to the Committees on Appropriations which describes steps being taken to implement section 576 of the 1997 Act and section 1502(b) of title XV of the International Financial Institutions Act, both of which address appropriate levels of military expenditures by countries in receipt of loans or credits from MDBs. The report shall identify, among other things--(1) the countries found not to be in compliance with the provisions of section 576 and instances where the United States Executive Director has voted to oppose a loan as a result of that section; (2) steps taken by the governments of countries to establish the reporting systems addressed in section 576; (3) any instances in which such governments have failed to provide information requested by an international financial institution (IFI); and (4) any policy changes that have been made by the IFIs with regard to providing loans or credits to countries that expend a significant portion of their financial resources for their armed and security forces. The Senate included this report in bill language. The House did not address the matter. Sec. 591. Abolition of the Inter-American Foundation The conference agreement provides authority for the President to abolish the Inter-American Foundation and terminate its functions, as proposed by the Senate amendment. The House bill did not address this matter. Sec. 592. Repeal of Requirement for Annual GAO Report on the Financial Operations of the International Monetary Fund The conference agreement repeals existing law regarding an annual General Accounting Office report of the financial operations of the International Monetary Fund. The House bill did not address this matter. Sec. 593. Extension of GAO Authorities The conference agreement provides that funds made available to the General Accounting Office from fiscal year 1999 emergency supplemental appropriations for disaster relief in Central America and the Caribbean shall remain available until expended. This section is identical to the Senate amendment. The House bill did not address this matter. Sec. 594. Funding for Serbia The conference agreement includes language that authorizes up to $100,000,000 for assistance for Serbia, subject to certain conditions that become effective after March 31, 2001. Funds obligated prior to that date would not be subject to these conditions. The conditions include a determination and certification that the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) is-- (1) cooperating with the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia including access for investigators, the provision of documents, and the surrender and transfer of indictees or assistance in their apprehension; (2) taking steps that are consistent with the Dayton Accords to end Serbian financial, political, security, and other support which has served to maintain separate Republika Srpska institutions; and (3) taking steps to implement policies which reflect a respect for minority rights and the rule of law. In addition, after March 31, 2001, the language provides that the Secretary of the Treasury should instruct the United States executive directors to international financial institutions to support loans and assistance to the Government of the FRY subject to these same conditions. The conditions described above do not apply to Montenegro, Kosova, humanitarian assistance, or assistance to promote democracy in municipalities. The language also provides that the Secretary of State should instruct United States representatives to regional and international organizations to support membership for the Government of the FRY subject to a determination by the President to the Committees on Appropriations that the FRY has applied for membership on the same basis as the other successor states to the FRY and has taken appropriate steps to resolve issues related to state liabilities, assets, and property. The House bill (in section 537) and the Senate amendment would have prohibited assistance for Serbia, except for aid to Kosova or Montenegro or to promote democracy. Sec. 595. Forest Initiative The conference agreement includes a provision providing for an exchange of federal lands and an audit of a public enterprise. This matter was not addressed in the House bill or the Senate amendment. Sec. 596. User Fees The conference agreement includes a provision which requires the United States Executive Directors at all multilateral development banks and the International Monetary Fund to oppose any loan which requires user fees or service charges on poor people for primary education or primary health care. The managers further agree that user fees should not be imposed or required through Bank or Fund sponsored ``community financing,'' ``cost sharing,'' or ``cost recovery'' mechanisms prepared in conjunctions with loans, structural adjustment schemes or debt relief actions. The managers direct that the Committees on Appropriations be notified within 10 days if any loans, community financing, cost sharing, or cost recovery mechanisms requiring the imposition of user fees are approved by any multilateral development bank or the International Monetary Fund. Sec. 597. Basic Education Assistance for Pakistan The conference agreement includes a new provision allowing development assistance or Economic Support Funds to be used for basic education programs in Pakistan, notwithstanding any provision of law that restricts assistance to foreign countries. Any such assistance would be subject to the regular notification procedures of the Committees on Appropriations. Sec. 598. Family Planning The conference agreement provides a ceiling of $425,000,000 for population planning activities or other population assistance but prohibits any of such funds from being obligated or expended until February 15, 2001. The managers believe this will afford adequate time for the exercise of the authority of the President under the Foreign Assistance Act and other law to determine what terms and conditions, if any, should be imposed on assistance for population planning and other population activities. PROVISIONS NOT ADOPTED BY THE CONFEREES The conference agreement does not include section 530 of the House bill or similar Senate language that would have prohibited the transfer of Stinger missiles to countries bordering the Persian Gulf notwithstanding any other provision of law, but would have authorized the transfer of Stinger missiles on a replacement basis subject to certain specified conditions.

The conference report does not include section 584 of the Senate amendment that would have required that a number of specified sanctions against Serbia remain in place until a certification was issued by the President.

The House bill did not address this matter.

TITLE VI--EMERGENCY SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE FUNDS APPROPRIATED TO THE PRESIDENT AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT International Disaster Assistance The conference agreement appropriates $135,000,000 for emergency supplemental appropriations for Mozambique, Madagascar, and southern Africa rehabilitation and reconstruction. The House bill proposed $160,000,000 and the Senate amendment proposed $35,000,000. Congress has already provided $25,000,000 in fiscal year 2000 supplemental funds (Public Law 106 246) for this purpose. These funds are provided in the ``International Disaster Assistance'' account. All of these funds are made available only to the extent that the President makes an official budget request that includes designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement. The managers direct that the majority of funds be provided for Mozambique and Madagascar, which suffered the most damage from these cyclones and the resultant flooding. The managers direct that no funds be made available to the government of Zimbabwe. Further, the conference agreement prohibits the use of funds under this title for nonproject assistance. This prohibition is not intended to affect the accelerated disbursement plan developed by AID for local currency projects in Mozambique. The conference agreement allows up to $12,000,000 of the funds appropriated under this heading to be charged to obligations of previously appropriated funds. The conference agreement provides that up to $5,000,000 of the funds under this heading may be used for administrative purposes, and may be merged with AID's operating expenses budget. The Administrator of AID is directed to report in writing to the Committees on Appropriations prior to the obligation of any funds under this title.

FUNDS APPROPRIATED TO THE PRESIDENT OPERATING EXPENSES OF THE AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT The conference agreement appropriates $13,000,000 in supplemental funds, to remain available until September 30, 2001, for the Operating Expenses of the Agency for International Development. The funding is designated as an emergency requirement and is intended to support the obligation of program funds for southeast Europe. All of these funds are made available only to the extent that the President makes an official budget request that includes designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement. The House addressed this matter in H.R. 3908, the 2000 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed the House on March 30, 2000. The recommended level is the same as that approved by the House. The Senate amendment did not address this matter. OTHER BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE Assistance for Eastern Europe and the Baltic States The conference agreement appropriates $75,825,000 in supplemental funds, to remain available until September 30, 2002, for assistance for Montenegro, Croatia, and Serbia.

The House addressed this matter in H.R. 3908, the 2000 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed the House on March 30, 2000.

This matter was not addressed by the House bill and the Senate amendment. Section 801 repeals the existing limitation on the availability of earnings on profits of nonpublic gold sales by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and authorizes $435,000,000 for a United States contribution to the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Trust Fund. It also requires the Secretary of the Treasury to certify that specified policy reforms are being implemented by the World Bank and the IMF, or, if such certification can not be made, report on the progress, if any, made by the Bank and Fund in adopting and implementing such reform policies. Section 802 seeks to strengthen procedures for monitoring use of funds by multilateral development banks (MDBs).
