            (1) in subsection (a)(1), by striking ``District of Columbia

        and inserting ``Mayor''; and
            (2) in subsection (b)(1), by striking ``Authority'' and 
        inserting ``Mayor''.

    Sec. 170. (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
            (1) The District of Columbia has recently witnessed a spate 
        of senseless killings of innocent citizens caught in the 
        crossfire of shootings. A Justice Department crime victimization 
        survey found that while the city saw a decline in the homicide 
        rate between 1996 and 1997, the rate was the highest among a 
        dozen cities and more than double the second highest city.
            (2) The District of Columbia has not made adequate funding 
        available to fight drug abuse in recent years, and the city has 
        not deployed its resources as effectively as possible. In fiscal 
        year 1998, $20,900,000 was spent on publicly funded drug 
        treatment in the District compared to $29,000,000 in fiscal year 
        1993. The District's Addiction and Prevention and Recovery 
        Agency currently has only 2,200 treatment slots, a 50 percent 
        drop from 1994, with more than 1,100 people on waiting lists.
            (3) The District of Columbia has seen a rash of inmate 
        escapes from halfway houses. According to Department of 
        Corrections records, between October 21, 1998 and January 19, 
        1999, 376 of the 1,125 inmates assigned to halfway houses walked 
        away. Nearly 280 of the 376 escapees were awaiting trial 
        including two charged with murder.
            (4) The District of Columbia public schools system faces 
        serious challenges in correcting chronic problems, particularly 
        long-standing deficiencies in providing special education 
        services to the 1 in 10 District students needing program 
        benefits, including backlogged assessments, and repeated failure 
        to meet a compliance agreement on special education reached with 
        the Department of Education.

[[Page 113 STAT. 1532]]

            (5) Deficiencies in the delivery of basic public services 
        from cleaning streets to waiting time at Department of Motor 
        Vehicles to a rat population estimated earlier this year to 
        exceed the human population have generated considerable public 
        frustration.
            (6) Last year, the District of Columbia forfeited millions 
        of dollars in Federal grants after Federal auditors determined 
        that several agencies exceeded grant restrictions and in other 
        instances, failed to spend funds before the grants expired.
            (7) Findings of a 1999 report by the Annie E. Casey 
        Foundation that measured the well-being of children reflected 
        that, with one exception, the District ranked worst in the 
        United States in every category from infant mortality to the 
        rate of teenage births to statistics chronicling child poverty.

    (b) Sense of the Congress.--It is the sense of the Congress that in 
considering the District of Columbia's fiscal year 2001 budget, the 
Congress will take into consideration progress or lack of progress in 
addressing the following issues:
            (1) Crime, including the homicide rate, implementation of 
        community policing, the number of police officers on local 
        beats, and the closing down of open-air drug markets.
            (2) Access to drug abuse treatment, including the number of 
        treatment slots, the number of people served, the number of 
        people on waiting lists, and the effectiveness of treatment 
        programs.
            (3) Management of parolees and pretrial violent offenders, 
        including the number of halfway house escapes and steps taken to 
        improve monitoring and supervision of halfway house residents to 
        reduce the number of escapes.
            (4) Education, including access to special education 
        services and student achievement.
            (5) Improvement in basic city services, including rat 
        control and abatement.
            (6) Application for and management of Federal grants.
            (7) Indicators of child well-being.

    Sec. 171. The Mayor, prior to using Federal Medicaid payments to 
Disproportionate Share Hospitals to serve a small number of childless 
adults, should consider the recommendations of the Health Care 
Development Commission that has been appointed by the Council of the 
District of Columbia to review this program, and consult and report to 
Congress on the use of these funds.
    Sec. 172. <<NOTE: Deadline.>>  GAO Study of District of Columbia 
Criminal Justice System. Not later than 1 year after the date of the 
enactment of this Act, the Comptroller General of the United States 
shall--
            (1) conduct a study of the law enforcement, court, prison, 
        probation, parole, and other components of the criminal justice 
        system of the District of Columbia, in order to identify the 
        components most in need of additional resources, including 
        financial, personnel, and management resources; and
            (2) <<NOTE: Reports.>>  submit to Congress a report on the

                    (C) report to Congress on the specific steps being

a certification that--
            (1) the representatives of the successor states to the

            (2) the Government of Serbia is fully complying with its

        agreed on, signed, and begun implementation of a negotiated 
        settlement on the future status of Kosova.

    (d) Statement of Policy.--It is the sense of the Congress that the 
United States should not restore full diplomatic relations with Serbia 
until the President submits to the Committees on Appropriations and 
Foreign Relations in the Senate and the Committees on Appropriations and 
International Relations in the

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-129]]

House of Representatives the certification described in subsection (c).
    (e) Exemption of Montenegro and Kosova.--The sanctions described in 
subsection (b) shall not apply to Montenegro or Kosova.
    (f ) Definition.--The term ``international financial institution'' 
includes the International Monetary Fund, the International Bank for 
Reconstruction and Development, the International Development 
Association, the International Finance Corporation, the Multilateral 
Investment Guaranty Agency, and the European Bank for Reconstruction and 
Development.
    (g) Waiver Authority.--The President may waive the application in 
whole or in part, of any sanction described in subsection (b) if the 
President certifies to the Congress that the President has determined 
   that the waiver is necessary to meet emergency humanitarian needs.

    Sec. 599A. (a) Findings.--The Congress finds as follows:
            (1) The United States is the world leader in the development 
        of environmental technologies, particularly clean coal 
        technology.
            (2) Severe pollution problems affecting people in developing 
        countries, and the serious health problems that result from such 
        pollution, can be effectively addressed through the application 
        of United States technology.
            (3) During the next century, developing countries, 
        particularly countries in Asia such as China and India, will 
        dramatically increase their consumption of electricity, and low 
        quality coal will be a major source of fuel for power 
        generation.
            (4) Without the use of modern clean coal technology, the 
        resultant pollution will cause enormous health and environmental 
        problems leading to diminished economic growth in developing 
        countries and, thus, diminished United States exports to those 
        growing markets.

    (b) Statement of Policy.--It is the policy of the United States to 
promote the export of United States clean coal technology. 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. Programs, projects and activities for 
which the use of such technology should be considered include 
reconstruction assistance for the Balkans, activities carried out by the 
Global Environment Facility, and activities funded from USAID's 
                      Development Credit Authority.

    Sec. 599B. (a) Funds appropriated or otherwise made available by 
this Act for United States assistance for reconstruction efforts in the 
Federal Republic of Yugoslavia or any contiguous country should to the 
maximum extent practicable be used for the procurement of articles and 
services of United States origin.
    (b) Definitions.--In this section:

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-130]]

        commodity, steel, communications equipment, farm machinery or 
        petrochemical refinery equipment.

        under this section in an account separate from other accounts of 
        the UNFPA;

        the UNFPA under this section with other sums; and
            (C) the UNFPA does not fund abortions.

    (4) Report to the Congress and Withholding of Funds.--
            (A) Not later than February 15, 2000, the Secretary of State 
        shall submit a report to the appropriate congressional 
        committees indicating the amount of funds that the United 
        Nations Population Fund is budgeting for the year in which the 
        report is submitted for a country program in the People's 
        Republic of China.
            (B) If a report under subparagraph (A) indicates that the 
        United Nations Population Fund plans to spend funds for a 
        country program in the People's Republic of China in the year 
        covered by the report, then the amount of such funds that the 
        UNFPA plans to spend in the People's Republic of China shall be 
        deducted from the funds made available to the UNFPA after March 
        1 for obligation for the remainder of the fiscal year in which

        of a country.
            (2) Lobbying activities.--(A) Notwithstanding section 614 of

        opposition to coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.
            (3) Application to foreign organizations.--The prohibitions 
        and certifications of this subsection apply to funds made 
        available to a foreign organization either directly or as a

    (c) Waiver Authority.--
            (1) Authority.--The President may waive the restrictions

    (c) Procedure and Priorities for Debt Payments.--
            (1) In structuring the agreement or memorandum of 
        understanding identified in subsection (b)(2), the ASG and the 
        Secretary shall include provisions, which create priorities for 
        the payment of creditors in the following order--
                    (A) debts incurred for services, supplies, 
                facilities, equipment and materials directly connected 
                with the provision of health, safety and welfare 
                functions for the benefit of the general population of 
                American Samoa (including, but not limited to, health 
                care, fire and police protection, educational programs 
                grades K-12, and utility services for facilities 
                belonging to or utilized by ASG and its agencies), 
                wherein the creditor agrees to compromise and settle the 
                existing debt for a payment not exceeding 75 percent of 
                the amount owed, shall be given the highest priority for 
                payment from the loan proceeds under this section;
                    (B) debts not exceeding a total amount of $200,000 
                owed to a single provider and incurred for any 
                legitimate governmental purpose for the benefit of the 
                general population of American Samoa, wherein the 
                creditor agrees to compromise and settle the existing 
                debt for a payment not exceeding 70 percent of the 
                amount owed, shall be given the second highest priority 
                for payment from the loan proceeds under this section;
                    (C) debts exceeding a total amount of $200,000 owed 
                to a single provider and incurred for any legitimate 
                governmental purpose for the benefit of the general 
                population of American Samoa, wherein the creditor 
                agrees to compromise and settle the existing debt for a 
                payment not exceeding 65 percent of the amount owed, 
                shall be given the third highest priority for payment 
                from the loan proceeds under this section;
                    (D) other debts regardless of total amount owed or 
                purpose for which incurred, wherein the creditor agrees 
                to compromise and settle the existing debt for a payment 
                not exceeding 60 percent of the amount owed, shall be 
                given the fourth highest priority for payment from the 
                loan proceeds under this section;
                    (E) debts described in subparagraphs (A), (B), (C), 
                and (D) of this paragraph, wherein the creditor declines 
                to compromise and settle the debt for the percentage of 
                the amount owed as specified under the applicable 
                subparagraph, shall be given the lowest priority for 
                payment from the loan proceeds under this section.
            (2) The agreement described in subsection (b)(2) shall also 
        generally provide a framework whereby the Governor of American 
        Samoa shall, from time-to-time, be required to give 10 business 
        days notice to the Secretary that ASG will make payment in 
        accordance with this section to specified creditors and the 
        amount which will be paid to each of such creditors.

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-162]]

        Upon issuance of payments in accordance with the notice, the 
        Governor shall immediately confirm such payments to the 
        Secretary, and the Secretary shall within three business days 
        following receipt of such confirmation transfer from the loan 
        proceeds an amount sufficient to reimburse ASG for the payments 
        made to creditors.
            (3) The agreement may contain such other provisions as are 
        mutually agreeable, and which are calculated to simplify and 
        expedite the payment of existing debt under this section and 
        ensure the greatest level of compromise and settlement with 
        creditors in order to maximize the retirement of ASG debt.

    (d) Fiscal and Managerial Reform Program.--
            (1) The initial plan of fiscal and managerial reform, 
        designed to bring ASG's annual operating expenses into balance 
        with projected revenues for the years 2003 and beyond as 
        required under subsection (b)(3), should identify specific 
        measures which will be implemented by ASG to accomplish such 
        goal, the anticipated reduction in government operating expense 
        which will be achieved by each measure, and should include a 
        timetable for attainment of each reform measure identified 
        therein.
            (2) The initial plan should also identify with specificity 
        the manner in which approximately $4,300,000 of the loan 
        proceeds will be utilized to assist in meeting the reform plan's 
        targets within the timetable specified through the use of 
        incentives for early retirement, severance pay packages, 
        outsourcing services, or any other expenditures for program 
        elements reasonably calculated to result in reduced future 
        operating expenses for ASG on a long term basis.
            (3) Upon receipt of the initial plan, the Secretary shall 
        consult with the Governor of American Samoa, and shall make any 
        recommendations deemed reasonable and prudent to ensure the 
        goals of reform are achieved. The reform plan shall contain 
        objective criteria that can be documented by a competent third 
        party, mutually agreeable to the Governor and the Secretary. The 
        plan shall include specific targets for reducing the amounts of 
        ASG local revenues expended on government payroll and overhead 
        (including contracts for consulting services), and may include 
        provisions which allow modest increases in support of the LBJ 
        Hospital Authority reasonably calculated to assist the Authority 
        implement reforms which will lead to an independent audit 
        indicating annual expenditures at or below annual Authority 
        receipts.
            (4) The Secretary shall enter into an agreement with the 
        Governor similar to that specified in subsection (c)(2) of this 
        section, enabling ASG to make payments as contemplated in the 
        reform plan and then to receive reimbursement from the Secretary 
        out of the portion of loan proceeds allocated for the 
        implementation of fiscal reforms.
            (5) Within 60 days following receipt of the initial plan, 
        the Secretary shall approve an interim final plan reasonably 
        calculated to make substantial progress toward overall reform. 
        The Secretary shall provide copies of the plan, and any 
        subsequent modifications, to the House Committee on Resources, 
        the House Committee on Appropriations Subcommittee on the 
        Department of the Interior and Related Agencies, the Senate

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-163]]

        Committee on Appropriations Subcommittee on the Department of 
        the Interior and Related Agencies.
            (6) From time-to-time as deemed necessary, the Secretary 
        shall consult further with the Governor of American Samoa, and 
        shall approve such mutually agreeable modifications to the 
        interim final plan as circumstances warrant in order to achieve 
        the overall goals of ASG fiscal and managerial reforms.

    (e) Release of Loan Proceeds.--From the total proceeds of the loan 
described in this section, the Secretary shall make available--
            (1) upon compliance by ASG with paragraphs (b)(1) and (b)(2) 
        of this section and in accordance with subsection (c), 
        approximately $14,300,000 in reimbursements as requested from 
        time-to-time by the Governor for payments to creditors;
            (2) upon compliance by ASG with paragraphs (b)(1) and (b)(3) 
        of this section and in accordance with subsection (d), 
        approximately $4,300,000 in reimbursements as requested from 
        time-to-time by the Governor for payments associated with 
        implementation of the interim final reform plan; and
            (3) notwithstanding paragraphs (1) and (2) of this 
        subsection, at any time the Secretary and the Governor mutually 
        determine that the amount necessary to fund payments under 
        paragraph (2) will total less than $4,300,000 then the Secretary 
        may approve the amount of any unused portion of such sum for 
        additional payments against ASG debt under paragraph (1).

    (f ) Exception.-- Proceeds from the loan under this section shall be 
used solely for the purposes of debt payments and reform plan 
implementation as specified herein, except that the Secretary may 
provide an amount equal to not more than 2 percent of the total loan 
proceeds for the purpose of retaining the services of an individual or 
business entity to provide direct assistance and management expertise in 
carrying out the purposes of this section. Such individual or business 
entity shall be mutually agreeable to the Governor and the Secretary, 
may not be a current or former employee of, or contractor for, and may 
not be a creditor of ASG. Notwithstanding the preceding two sentences, 
the Governor and the Secretary may agree to also retain the services of 
any semi-autonomous agency of ASG which has established a record of 
sound management and fiscal responsibility, as evidenced by audited 
financial reports for at least three of the past 5 years, to coordinate 
with and assist any individual or entity retained under this subsection.
    (g) Construction.--The provisions of this section are expressly 
applicable only to the utilization of proceeds from the loan described 
in this section, and nothing herein shall be construed to relieve ASG 
from any lawful debt or obligation except to the extent a creditor shall 
voluntarily enter into an arms length agreement to compromise and settle 
outstanding amounts under subsection (c).
    (h) Termination.--The payment of debt and the payments associated 
with implementation of the interim final reform plan shall be completed 
not later than October 1, 2003. On such date, any unused loan proceeds 
totaling $1,000,000 or less shall be transferred by the Secretary 
directly to ASG. If the amount of unused

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-164]]

loan proceeds exceeds $1,000,000, then such amount shall be credited to 
the total of loan repayments specified in paragraph (b)(1). With 
approval of the Secretary, ASG may designate additional payments from 
time-to-time from funds available from any source, without regard to the 
original purpose of such funds.
    Sec. 126. The Secretary of the Interior, acting through the Director 
of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and in consultation with 
the Director of the National Park Service, shall undertake the necessary 
activities to designate Midway Atoll as a National Memorial to the 
Battle of Midway. In pursuing such a designation the Secretary shall 
consult with organizations with an interest in Midway Atoll. The 
Secretary shall consult on a regular basis with such organizations, 
including the International Midway Memorial Foundation, Inc. on the 
management of the National Memorial.
    Sec. 127. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Secretary 
of the Interior is authorized to redistribute any Tribal Priority 
Allocation funds, including tribal base funds, to alleviate tribal 
funding inequities by transferring funds to address identified, unmet 
needs, dual enrollment, overlapping service areas or inaccurate 
distribution methodologies. No tribe shall receive a reduction in Tribal 
Priority Allocation funds of more than 10 percent in fiscal year 2000. 
Under circumstances of dual enrollment, overlapping service areas or 
inaccurate distribution methodologies, the 10 percent limitation does 
not apply.
    Sec. 128. None of the Funds provided in this Act shall be available 
to the Bureau of Indian Affairs or the Department of the Interior to 
transfer land into trust status for the Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe in 
Clark County, Washington, unless and until the tribe and the county 
reach a legally enforceable agreement that addresses the financial 
impact of new development on the county, school district, fire district, 
and other local governments and the impact on zoning and development.

    Sec. 134. Quadricentennial Commemoration of the Saint Croix Island 
International Historic Site. (a) Findings.--The Senate finds that--
            (1) in 1604, one of the first European colonization efforts 
        was attempted at St. Croix Island in Calais, Maine;
            (2) St. Croix Island settlement predated both the Jamestown 
        and Plymouth colonies;
            (3) St. Croix Island offers a rare opportunity to preserve 
        and interpret early interactions between European explorers and 
        colonists and Native Americans;
            (4) St. Croix Island is one of only two international 
        historic sites comprised of land administered by the National 
        Park Service;
            (5) the quadricentennial commemorative celebration honoring 
        the importance of the St. Croix Island settlement to the 
        countries and people of both Canada and the United States is 
        rapidly approaching;
            (6) the 1998 National Park Service management plans and 
        long-range interpretive plan call for enhancing visitor 
        facilities at both Red Beach and downtown Calais;
            (7) in 1982, the Department of the Interior and Canadian 
        Department of the Environment signed a memorandum of 
        understanding to recognize the international significance of St. 
        Croix Island and, in an amendment memorandum, agreed to conduct 
        joint strategic planning for the international commemoration 
        with a special focus on the 400th anniversary of settlement in 
        2004;

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-169]]

            (8) the Department of Canadian Heritage has installed 
        extensive interpretive sites on the Canadian side of the border; 
        and
            (9) current facilities at Red Beach and Calais are extremely 
        limited or nonexistent for a site of this historic and cultural 
        importance.

    (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate that--
            (1) using funds made available by this Act, the National 
        Park Service should expeditiously pursue planning for exhibits 
        at Red Beach and the town of Calais, Maine; and
            (2) the National Park Service should take what steps are 
        necessary, including consulting with the people of Calais, to 
        ensure that appropriate exhibits at Red Beach and the town of 
        Calais are completed by 2004.

    Sec. 135. No funds appropriated for the Department of the Interior

or tanned hides or fur skins, or separate parts thereof, including 
species listed under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered 
Species of Wild Fauna and Flora done at Washington, March 3, 1973 (27

the course of such year.
    Sec. 137. (a) The Secretary of the Interior shall during fiscal year 
2000 reorganize and consolidate the Bureau of Indian Affairs' management

    (b) Bureau of Indian Affairs employees in Central Office West 
divisions that are moved due to the implementation of the National 
Academy of Public Administration recommendations, who voluntarily resign 
or retire from the Bureau of Indian Affairs on or before December 31, 
1999, may receive, from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, a lump sum 
voluntary separation incentive payment that shall be equal to the lesser 
of an amount equal to the amount the employee would be entitled to 
receive under section 5595(c) of title 5, United States Code, if the 
employee were entitled to payment under such section; or $25,000.
            (1) The voluntary separation incentive payment--
                    (A) shall not be a basis for payment, and shall not 
                be included in the computation of any other type of 
                Government benefit; and

                employee.
            (2) Employees receiving a voluntary separation incentive 
        payment and accepting employment with the Federal Government

        of Indian Affairs.

            (3) The Secretary may, at the request of the head of an 
        executive branch agency, waive the repayment under paragraph (2) 
        if the individual involved possesses unique abilities and is the 
        only qualified applicant available for the position.

Secretary of Agriculture (hereinafter the ``Secretary'') is hereby and 
hereafter authorized to conduct technology transfer and development, 
training, dissemination of information and applied research in the 
management, processing and utilization of the hardwood forest resource. 
This authority is in addition to any other authorities which may be 
available to the Secretary including, but not limited to, the 
Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act of 1978, as amended (16 U.S.C. 2101 
et seq.), and the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Act of 1978, 
as amended (16 U.S.C. 1600-1614).
    (b) In carrying out this authority, the Secretary may enter into 
grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements with public and private 
agencies, organizations, corporations, institutions and individuals. The 
Secretary may accept gifts and donations pursuant to the Act of October 
10, 1978 (7 U.S.C. 2269) including gifts and donations from a donor that 
conducts business with any agency of the Department of Agriculture or is 
regulated by the Secretary of Agriculture.
    (c) The Secretary is hereby and hereafter authorized to operate and 
utilize the assets of the Wood Education and Resource Center (previously 
named the Robert C. Byrd Hardwood Technology Center in West Virginia) as 
part of a newly formed ``Institute of Hardwood Technology Transfer and 
Applied Research'' (hereinafter the ``Institute''). The Institute, in 
addition to the Wood Education and Resource Center, will consist of a 
Director, technology transfer specialists from State and Private 
Forestry, the Forestry Sciences Laboratory in Princeton, West Virginia, 
and any other organizational unit of the Department of Agriculture as 
the Secretary deems appropriate. The overall management of the Institute 
will be the responsibility of the Forest Service, State and Private 
Forestry.
    (d) The Secretary is hereby and hereafter authorized to generate 
revenue using the authorities provided herein. Any revenue received as 
part of the operation of the Institute shall be deposited into a special 
fund in the Treasury of the United States, known as the ``Hardwood 
Technology Transfer and Applied Research Fund'', which shall be 
available to the Secretary until expended, without further 
appropriation, in furtherance of the purposes of this section, including 
upkeep, management, and operation of the Institute and the payment of

    Sec. 333. No timber sale in Region 10 shall be advertised if the 
indicated rate is deficit when appraised under the transaction evidence 
appraisal system using domestic Alaska values for western red cedar: 
Provided, That sales which are deficit when appraised under the 
transaction evidence appraisal system using domestic Alaska values for 
western red cedar may be advertised upon receipt

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-198]]

of a written request by a prospective, informed bidder, who has the 
opportunity to review the Forest Service's cruise and harvest cost 
estimate for that timber. Program accomplishments shall be based on 
volume sold. Should Region 10 sell, in fiscal year 2000, the annual 
average portion of the decadal allowable sale quantity called for in the 
current Tongass Land Management Plan in sales which are not deficit when 
appraised under the transaction evidence appraisal system using domestic 
Alaska values for western red cedar, all of the western red cedar timber 
from those sales which is surplus to the needs of domestic processors in 
Alaska, shall be made available to domestic processors in the contiguous 
48 United States at prevailing domestic prices. Should Region 10 sell, 
in fiscal year 2000, less than the annual average portion of the decadal 
allowable sale quantity called for in the current Tongass Land 
Management Plan in sales which are not deficit when appraised under the 
transaction evidence appraisal system using domestic Alaska values for 
western red cedar, the volume of western red cedar timber available to 
domestic processors at prevailing domestic prices in the contiguous 48 
United States shall be that volume: (i) which is surplus to the needs of 
domestic processors in Alaska; and (ii) is that percent of the surplus 
western red cedar volume determined by calculating the ratio of the 
total timber volume which has been sold on the Tongass to the annual 
average portion of the decadal allowable sale quantity called for in the 
current Tongass Land Management Plan. The percentage shall be calculated 
by Region 10 on a rolling basis as each sale is sold (for purposes of 
this amendment, a ``rolling basis'' shall mean that the determination of 
how much western red cedar is eligible for sale to various markets shall 
be made at the time each sale is awarded). Western red cedar shall be 
deemed ``surplus to the needs of domestic processors in Alaska'' when 
the timber sale holder has presented to the Forest Service documentation 
of the inability to sell western red cedar logs from a given sale to 
domestic Alaska processors at price equal to or greater than the log 
selling value stated in the contract. All additional western red cedar 
volume not sold to Alaska or contiguous 48 United States domestic 
processors may be exported to foreign markets at the election of the 
timber sale holder. All Alaska yellow cedar may be sold at prevailing 
export prices at the election of the timber sale holder.

Secretary of Education shall distribute supplemental payments for 
certain local educational agencies, as follows:
            (1) First, from the amount of $74,000,000, the Secretary 
        shall make supplemental payments to the following agencies under 
        section 8003(f ) of ESEA:
                    (A) Local educational agencies that received 
                assistance under section 8003(f ) for fiscal year 1999--
                          (i) in fiscal year 1997 had at least 40

                      State average tax rate for general fund purposes; 
                      or
                          (ii) whose boundary is coterminous with the

                assistance under section 8003(f ) for fiscal year 1999; 
                and in fiscal year 1997 had at least 30 percent

                8003(a)(1) in average daily attendance; and in fiscal 
                year 1997 had a tax rate for general fund purposes which

                for general fund purposes.
                    (C) Any eligible local educational agency that in 
                fiscal year 1997, which had at least 25,000 children in 
                average daily attendance, at least 50 percent federally

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-259]]

                attendance, and at least 6,000 children described in 
                subparagraphs (A) and (B) of section 8003(a)(1) in 
                average daily attendance.
            (2) From the remaining $2,000,000 and any amounts available 
        after making payments under paragraph (1), the Secretary shall 
        then make supplemental payments to local educational agencies 
        that are not described in paragraph (1) of this subsection, but 
        that meet the requirements of paragraphs (2) and (4) of section 
        8003(f ) of ESEA for fiscal year 2000.
            (3) After making payments to all eligible local educational 
        agencies described in paragraph (2) of subsection (a), the 
        Secretary shall use any remaining funds from paragraph (2) for 
        making payments to the eligible local educational agencies 
        described in paragraph (1) of subsection (a) if the amount 
        available under paragraph (1) is insufficient to fully fund all 
        eligible local educational agencies.
            (4) After making payments to all eligible local educational 
        agencies as described in paragraphs 1 through 3, the Secretary 
        shall use any remaining funds to increase basic support payments 
        under section 8003(b) for fiscal year 2000 for all eligible 
        applicants.

    (b) In calculating the amounts of supplemental payments for agencies 
described in subparagraphs (1)(A) and (B) and paragraph (2) of 
subsection (a), the Secretary shall use the formula contained in section 
8003(b)(1)(C) of ESEA, except that--
            (1) eligible local educational agencies may count all 
        children described in section 8003(a)(1) in computing the amount 
        of those payments;
            (2) maximum payments for any of those agencies that use 
        local contribution rates identified in section 8003(b)(1)(C) (i) 
        or (ii) shall be computed by using four-fifths instead of one-
        half of those rates;
            (3) the learning opportunity threshold percentage of all 
        such agencies under section 8003(b)(2)(B) shall be deemed to be 
        100;
            (4) for an eligible local educational agency with 35 percent 
        or more of its children in average daily attendance described in 
        either subparagraph (D) or (E) of section 8003(a)(1) in fiscal 
        year 1997, the weighted student unit figure from its regular 
        basic support payment shall be recomputed by using a factor of 
        0.55 for such children;
            (5) for an eligible local educational agency with fewer than 
        100 children in average daily attendance in fiscal year 1997, 
        the weighted student unit figure from its regular basic support 
        payment shall be recomputed by multiplying the total number of 
        children described in section 8003(a)(1) by a factor of 1.75; 
        and
            (6) for an eligible local educational agency whose total 
        number of children in average daily attendance in fiscal year 
        1997 was at least 100, but fewer than 750, the weighted student 
        unit figure from its regular basic support payment shall be 
        recomputed by multiplying the total number of children described 
        in section 8003(a)(1) by a factor of 1.25.

    (c) For a local educational agency described in subsection (a)(1)(C) 
above, the Secretary shall use the formula contained in section 
8003(b)(1)(C) of ESEA, except that the weighted student

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-260]]

unit total from its regular basic support payment shall be recomputed by 
using a factor of 1.35 for children described in subparagraphs (A) and 
(B) of section 8003(a)(1) and its learning opportunity threshold 
percentage shall be deemed to be 100.
    (d) For each eligible local educational agency, the calculated 
supplemental section 8003(f ) payment shall be reduced by subtracting 
the agency's fiscal year 2000 section 8003(b) basic support payment.
    (e) If the sums described in subsections (a)(1) and (2) above are 
insufficient to pay in full the calculated supplemental payments for the 
local educational agencies identified in those subsections, the 
Secretary shall ratably reduce the supplemental section 8003(f ) payment 
to each local educational agency.

    Sec. 310. (a) From the amount appropriated for title VI of the

section, the Secretary of Education--(1) shall make available a total of 
$6,000,000 to the Secretary of the Interior (on behalf of the Bureau of 
Indian Affairs) and the outlying areas for activities under this 
section; and (2) shall allocate the remainder by providing each State 
the same percentage of that remainder as it received of the funds 
allocated to States under section 307(a)(2) of the Department of 
Education Appropriations Act, 1999.
    (b)(1) Each State that receives funds under this section shall 
distribute 100 percent of such funds to local educational agencies, of 
which--

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-263]]

            (A) 80 percent of such amount shall be allocated to such 
        local educational agencies in proportion to the number of 
        children, aged 5 to 17, who reside in the school district served 
        by such local educational agency from families with incomes 
        below the poverty line (as defined by the Office of Management 
        and Budget and revised annually in accordance with section 
        673(2) of the Community Services Block Grant Act (42 U.S.C. 
        9902(2))) applicable to a family of the size involved for the 
        most recent fiscal year for which satisfactory data are 
        available compared to the number of such individuals who reside 
        in the school districts served by all the local educational 
        agencies in the State for that fiscal year; and
            (B) 20 percent of such amount shall be allocated to such 
        local educational agencies in accordance with the relative 
        enrollments of children, aged 5 to 17, in public and private 
        nonprofit elementary and secondary schools within the boundaries 
        of such agencies.

    (2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1), if the award to a local 
educational agency under this section is less than the starting salary 
for a new fully qualified teacher in that agency who is certified within 
the State (which may include certification through State or local 
alternative routes), has a baccalaureate degree, and demonstrates the 
general knowledge, teaching skills, and subject matter knowledge 
required to teach in his or her content areas, that agency may use funds 
under this section to (A) help pay the salary of a full- or part-time 
teacher hired to reduce class size, which may be in combination with 
other Federal, State, or local funds; or (B) pay for activities 
described in subsection (c)(2)(A)(iii) which may be related to teaching 
in smaller classes.
    (c)(1) The basic purpose and intent of this section is to reduce 
class size with fully qualified teachers. Each local educational agency 
that receives funds under this section shall use such funds to carry out 
effective approaches to reducing class size with fully qualified 
teachers who are certified within the State, including teachers 
certified through State or local alternative routes, and who demonstrate 
competency in the areas in which they teach, to improve educational 
achievement for both regular and special needs children, with particular 
consideration given to reducing class size in the early elementary 
grades for which some research has shown class size reduction is most 
effective.
    (2)(A) Each such local educational agency may use funds under this 
section for
            (i) recruiting (including through the use of signing 
        bonuses, and other financial incentives), hiring, and training 
        fully qualified regular and special education teachers (which 
        may include hiring special education teachers to team-teach with 
        regular teachers in classrooms that contain both children with 
        disabilities and non-disabled children) and teachers of special-
        needs children, who are certified within the State, including 
        teachers certified through State or local alternative routes, 
        have a baccalaureate degree and demonstrate the general 
        knowledge, teaching skills, and subject matter knowledge 
        required to teach in their content areas;
            (ii) testing new teachers for academic content knowledge, 
        and to meet State certification requirements that are consistent 
        with title II of the Higher Education Act of 1965; and

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-264]]

            (iii) providing professional development (which may include 
        such activities as promoting retention and mentoring) to 
        teachers, including special education teachers and teachers of 
        special-needs children, in order to meet the goal of ensuring 
        that all instructional staff have the subject matter knowledge, 
        teaching knowledge, and teaching skills necessary to teach 
        effectively in the content area or areas in which they provide 
        instruction, consistent with title II of the Higher Education 
        Act of 1965.

    (B)(i) Except as provided under clause (ii) a local educational 
agency may use not more than a total of 25 percent of the award received 
under this section for activities described in clauses (ii) and (iii) of 
subparagraph (A).
    (ii) A local educational agency in an Ed-Flex Partnership State 
under Public Law 106-25, the Education Flexibility Partnership Act, and 
in which 10 percent or more of teachers in elementary schools as defined 
by section 14101(14) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 
1965 have not met applicable State and local certification requirements 
(including certification through State or local alternative routes), or 
if such requirements have been waived, may apply to the State 
educational agency for a waiver that would permit it to use more than 25 
percent of the funds it receives under this section for activities 
described in subparagraph (A)(iii) for the purpose of helping teachers 
who have not met the certification requirements become certified.
    (iii) If the State educational agency approves the local educational 
agency's application for a waiver under clause (ii), the local 
educational agency may use the funds subject to the waiver for 
activities described in subparagraph (A)(iii) that are needed to ensure 
that at least 90 percent of the teachers in elementary schools are 
certified within the State.
    (C) A local educational agency that has already reduced class size 
in the early grades to 18 or less children (or has already reduced class 
size to a State or local class size reduction goal that was in effect on 
the day before the enactment of the Department of Education 
Appropriations Act, 2000, if that State or local educational agency goal 
is 20 or fewer children) may use funds received under this section--
            (i) to make further class size reductions in grades 
        kindergarten through 3;
            (ii) to reduce class size in other grades; or
            (iii) to carry out activities to improve teacher quality, 
        including professional development.

    (D) If a local educational agency has already reduced class size in 
the early grades to 18 or fewer children and intends to use funds 
provided under this section to carry out professional development 
activities, including activities to improve teacher quality, then the 
State shall make the award under subsection (b) to the local educational 
agency.
    (3) Each such agency shall use funds under this section only to 
supplement, and not to supplant, State and local funds that, in the 
absence of such funds, would otherwise be spent for activities under 
this section.
    (4) No funds made available under this section may be used to 
increase the salaries or provide benefits, other than participation in 
professional development and enrichment programs, to teachers who are 
not hired under this section. Funds under this section

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-265]]

may be used to pay the salary of teachers hired under section 307 of the 
Department of Education Appropriations Act, 1999.
    (d)(1) Each State receiving funds under this section shall report on 
activities in the State under this section, consistent with section 
6202(a)(2) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.
    (2) Each State and local educational agency receiving funds under 
this section shall publicly report to parents on its progress in 
reducing class size, increasing the percentage of classes in core 
academic areas taught by fully qualified teachers who are certified 
within the State and demonstrate competency in the content areas in 
which they teach, and on the impact that hiring additional highly 
qualified teachers and reducing class size, has had, if any, on 
increasing student academic achievement.
    (3) Each school receiving funds under this section shall provide to 
parents upon request, the professional qualifications of their child's 
teacher.
    (e) If a local educational agency uses funds made available under 
this section for professional development activities, the agency shall 
ensure for the equitable participation of private nonprofit elementary 
and secondary schools in such activities. Section 6402 of the Elementary 
and Secondary Education Act of 1965 shall not apply to other activities 
under this section.
    (f ) Administrative Expenses.--A local educational agency that 
receives funds under this section may use not more than 3 percent of 
such funds for local administrative costs.
    (g) Request for Funds.--Each local educational agency that desires 
to receive funds under this section shall include in the application 
required under section 6303 of the Elementary and Secondary Education 
Act of 1965 a description of the agency's program to reduce class size 
by hiring additional highly qualified teachers.
    (h) No funds under this section may be used to pay the salary of any 
teacher hired with funds under section 307 of the Department of 
Education Appropriations Act, 1999, unless, by the start of the 2000-
2001 school year, the teacher is certified within the State (which may 
include certification through State or local alternative routes) and 
demonstrates competency in the subject areas in which he or she teaches.

                        INFANTS WITH HEARING LOSS

    Sec. 601. (a) Definitions.--For the purposes of this section only, 
the following terms in this section are defined as follows:
            (1) Hearing screening.--Newborn and infant hearing screening 
        consists of objective physiologic procedures to detect possible 
        hearing loss and to identify newborns and infants who, after 
        rescreening, require further audiologic and medical evaluations.
            (2) Audiologic evaluation.--Audiologic evaluation consists 
        of procedures to assess the status of the auditory system; to 
        establish the site of the auditory disorder; the type and degree 
        of hearing loss, and the potential effects of hearing loss on 
        communication; and to identify appropriate treatment and 
        referral options. Referral options should include linkage to 
        State IDEA part C coordinating agencies or other appropriate 
        agencies, medical evaluation, hearing aid/sensory aid 
        assessment, audiologic rehabilitation treatment, national and 
        local

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-277]]

        consumer, self-help, parent, and education organizations, and 
        other family-centered services.
            (3) Medical evaluation.--Medical evaluation by a physician 
        consists of key components including history, examination, and 
        medical decision making focused on symptomatic and related body 
        systems for the purpose of diagnosing the etiology of hearing 
        loss and related physical conditions, and for identifying 
        appropriate treatment and referral options.
            (4) Medical intervention.--Medical intervention is the 
        process by which a physician provides medical diagnosis and 
        direction for medical and/or surgical treatment options of 
        hearing loss and/or related medical disorder associated with 
        hearing loss.
            (5) Audiologic rehabilitation.--Audiologic rehabilitation 
        (intervention) consists of procedures, techniques, and 
        technologies to facilitate the receptive and expressive 
        communication abilities of a child with hearing loss.
            (6) Early intervention.--Early intervention (e.g., 
        nonmedical) means providing appropriate services for the child 
        with hearing loss and ensuring that families of the child are 
        provided comprehensive, consumer-oriented information about the 
        full range of family support, training, information services, 
        communication options and are given the opportunity to consider 
        the full range of educational and program placements and options 
        for their child.

    (b) Purposes.--The purposes of this section are to clarify the 
authority within the Public Health Service Act to authorize statewide 
newborn and infant hearing screening, evaluation and intervention 
programs and systems, technical assistance, a national applied research 
program, and interagency and private sector collaboration for policy 
development, in order to assist the States in making progress toward the 
following goals:
            (1) All babies born in hospitals in the United States and 
        its territories should have a hearing screening before leaving 
        the birthing facility. Babies born in other countries and 
        residing in the United States via immigration or adoption should 
        have a hearing screening as early as possible.
            (2) All babies who are not born in hospitals in the United 
        States and its territories should have a hearing screening 
        within the first 3 months of life.
            (3) Appropriate audiologic and medical evaluations should be 
        conducted by 3 months for all newborns and infants suspected of 
        having hearing loss to allow appropriate referral and provisions 
        for audiologic rehabilitation, medical and early intervention 
        before the age of 6 months.
            (4) All newborn and infant hearing screening programs and 
        systems should include a component for audiologic 
        rehabilitation, medical and early intervention options that 
        ensures linkage to any new and existing statewide systems of 
        intervention and rehabilitative services for newborns and 
        infants with hearing loss.
            (5) Public policy in regard to newborn and infant hearing 
        screening and intervention should be based on applied research 
        and the recognition that newborns, infants, toddlers, and 
        children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing have unique language, 
        learning, and communication needs, and should be the result of 
        consultation with pertinent public and private sectors.

[[Page 113 STAT. 1501A-278]]

    (c) Statewide Newborn and Infant Hearing Screening, Evaluation and 
Intervention Programs and Systems.--Under the existing authority of the 
Public Health Service Act, the Secretary of Health and Human Services 
(in this section referred to as the ``Secretary''), acting through the 
Administrator of the Health Resources and Services Administration, shall 
make awards of grants or cooperative agreements to develop statewide 
newborn and infant hearing screening, evaluation and intervention 
programs and systems for the following purposes:
            (1) To develop and monitor the efficacy of statewide newborn 
        and infant hearing screening, evaluation and intervention 
        programs and systems. Early intervention includes referral to 
        schools and agencies, including community, consumer, and parent-
        based agencies and organizations and other programs mandated by 
        part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, which 
        offer programs specifically designed to meet the unique language 
        and communication needs of deaf and hard-of-hearing newborns, 
        infants, toddlers, and children.
            (2) To collect data on statewide newborn and infant hearing 
        screening, evaluation and intervention programs and systems that 
        can be used for applied research, program evaluation and policy 
        development.

    (d) Technical Assistance, Data Management, and Applied Research.--
            (1) Centers for disease control and prevention.--Under the 
        existing authority of the Public Health Service Act, the 
        Secretary, acting through the Director of the Centers for 
        Disease Control and Prevention, shall make awards of grants or 
        cooperative agreements to provide technical assistance to State 
        agencies to complement an intramural program and to conduct 
        applied research related to newborn and infant hearing 
        screening, evaluation and intervention programs and systems. The 
        program shall develop standardized procedures for data
