                      CLASSIFIED PROGRAM ADJUSTMENTS                     

      The Committee recommends adjustments to certain classified programs, 
   as explained in the classified annex to the Committee's report.         
                            COMPLIANCE WITH 302( B ) ALLOCATION                   

      The Appropriations Committee conformed fully to the budget resolution
   for defense spending in its 302(b) allocation. This allocation divided  
   the budget authority and outlays among the subcommittees with           
   jurisdiction over discretionary spending. The Defense Subcommittee has  
   the greatest share of defense spending. In this recommended bill, the   
   Appropriations Committee has remained within the tight constraints of   
   its 302(b) allocation for defense.

       Pay raise .--The President's fiscal year 2000 budget requests a     
   4.4-percent military pay raise. The Committee supports a more robust    
   military pay increase, and recommends a 4.8-percent pay raise for       
   military personnel, the largest increase in basic military pay in nearly
   a generation. This enhanced pay raise will keep military compensation   
   attractive, help ensure that military pay is competitive with private   
   sector wages, and enable the services to continue to attract and retain 
   a highly qualified volunteer force. This pay raise is effective January 
   1, 2000.                                                                
       Pay table reform .--The Committee supports pay table reform using   
   targeted pay raises to reward performance and promotion over longevity. 
   Pay table reform will result in a second pay raise during fiscal year   
   2000, up to an additional 5.5-percent, for individuals in critical      
   grades. Pay table reform and the associated pay raise is effective July 
   1, 2000.                                                                
       Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) .--The Committee    
   recognizes the value and importance of the Junior ROTC program for our  
   nation's high school students. The Committee endorses the JROTC mission 
   statement: ``. . . to instill in students in United States secondary    
   educational institutions the value of citizenship, service to the United
   States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.''       
      Although the Congress has authorized up to 3,500 JROTC units, the    
   Department has established and funded approximately 2,600 units. The    
   Committee directs the Department to increase funding for the JROTC      
   program to the fully authorized level. To achieve this goal in fiscal   
   year 2000, the Committee has provided $6,900,000 in the Service reserve 
   personnel appropriations, and $20,250,000 in the Service active         
   operation and maintenance appropriations.                               
      Further, the Committee directs the Department to provide a           
   comprehensive report by March 1, 2000, on the status of the JROTC       
   program, including a plan to increase the program to 3,500 units.

                    Operation and Maintenance Overview                   

      Operation and maintenance appropriations provide the resources       
   required by the U.S. Armed Forces, and supporting defense agencies, to  
   prepare for and conduct combat operations, and other peace time         
   missions. These funds are used to purchase fuel and spare parts for     
   training operations, pay supporting civilian personnel, and purchase    
   supplies, equipment, and service contracts for the repair of weapons and
   facilities.                                                             
                           Combating Terrorism                           

      Within the operation and maintenance appropriations, the Committee   
   has provided significant resources for the antiterrorism activities of  
   the Department. The Committee supports the unified management and focus 
   of these funds, as described in Senate Report 106 50, the National      
   Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2000. The Committee expects   
   the Secretary of Defense to report to the congressional defense         
   committees describing the use of the following amounts to achieve       
   combating terrorism objectives. The following funding is available in   
   fiscal year 2000:                                                       




          Army                           $497,800,000



          Navy                           284,100,000

      The Committee supports the establishment of 17 Rapid Assessment and  
   Initial Detection (RAID) teams pursuant to the action provided in the   
   Senate defense authorization bill. Accordingly, the Committee provided  
   funding for an additional 198 Army National Guard and 66 Air National   
   Guard full-time (AGR) personnel to facilitate this mission. Operation   
   and maintenance funding of $79,635,000 for RAID teams is provided within
   the amounts described for combating terrorism above.                    
                  Quality of Life Enhancements, Defense                  

      The Committee recognizes that the readiness of the all volunteer     
   force derives not only from realistic combat training and serviceable   
   equipment and weapons, but also from the quality of life which military 
   personnel enjoy from livable quarters and related facilities. To improve
   the living conditions of service men and women, the Committee           
   traditionally provided funding in either the barracks renovation        
   initiative, or more recently, in the Quality of Life Enhancements,      
   Defense account. For fiscal year 2000, the Department of Defense has    
   followed Committee practice and requested Quality of Life Enhancements, 
   Defense funds. The Department has, however, in an effort to circumvent  
   the discretionary budget outlay limits established in the Budget        
   Enforcement Act, expanded the scope and purpose of this account. Rather 
   than providing Quality of Life Enhancement funds for unspecified real   
   property maintenance projects, the Committee has appropriated and added 
   funds in the appropriate service accounts.                              
                        Unutilized Plant Capacity                        

      The Committee remains concerned with the costs of industrial         
   preparedness, and the overhead rates at Department of Defense arsenals. 
   The budget justification materials of the Department of Defense         
   submitted to Congress for each fiscal year after fiscal year 2000 shall 
   within the OP 32 exhibit include a descriptive budget line which        
   describes the funding for unutilized plant capacity.                    
                               A 76 Studies                              

      The Committee is aware of the Department of Defense's intention to   
   compete the jobs of federal employees under OMB Circular A 76. The      
   Committee is concerned that projected savings through A 76 planned      
   competitions do not match actual savings. The Committee directs the     
   Secretary of Defense to submit a report to the Senate and House         
   Appropriations Subcommittees on Defense within 60 days of enactment on  
   the use of OMB A 76 by the Department to contract in work. The report   
   shall list the instances since 1995, when work performed by contractors 
   has been converted to performance by civilian employees of the

                          COMMITTEE ADJUSTMENTS                          

       Program reductions .--The Committee supports the Army efforts to    
   adapt force structure, doctrine and technology to better meet future    
   security threats. The Committee has provided funding for the Joint      
   Contingency Force experiment, the Aim XXI program, and assorted         
   communications upgrades. The Committee recommends several adjustments to
   programs with unjustified program growth such as post production        
   software support, headquarters increases, service-wide communications,  
   the AWE and administration. Funding for the Pentagon renovation has been
   transferred to the Pentagon renovation transfer fund.                   
       Real Property Maintenance .--Despite the determined efforts of the  
   Committee to fund the training operations which the Army conducts to    
   achieve measurable readiness standards, the service has repeatedly      
   failed to execute the plans presented to, and approved by Congress. The 
   Army explains this migration of training resources to other activities  
   as ``fact-of-life'' adjustments required to balance funding levels      
   across the Operation and Maintenance appropriation. To protect the      
   training subactivity groups associated with operational readiness, the  
   Committee has supported fully and added $97,000,000 to the Army's real  
   property maintenance and base operations plan. The Committee directs    
   that real property maintenance funds recommended in the bill shall      
   provide the following program in fiscal year 2000:

                                         1,516,228,000



       Air Battle Captain .--The Committee has included $1,250,000 for the 
   Air Battle Captain helicopter flight training program. Of this amount,  
   $250,000 shall be directed to a national recruitment campaign           
   specifically targeted to the program. The Army is directed to provide a 
   detailed recruitment plan to the Committee for its review within sixty  
   days of enactment of this Act. The Committee intends that the balance of
   this funding shall be expended on activities directly associated with   
   flight training prescribed by the Air Battle Captain program curriculum 
   for helicopter training. In addition, the Committee directs the Army to 
   execute its pending agreement for continuation of the program.          
       Ravenna Army Ammunition Plant .--The Committee understands that the 
   Army has responsibility for the environmental cleanup of approximately  
   9,000 acres of the Ravenna Army Ammunition Plant. The Committee urges   
   the Army to develop a comprehensive plan and an associated timeline for 
   the remediation of its portion of the facility.                         
       Marion Engineering Depot .--The Committee urges the Corps of        
   Engineers to review the level of contaminants recently found at this    
   site and recommends that the Corps consider this facility a priority for
   future funding.                                                         
       Fort Des Moines Historic Memorial .--The Committee recommends an    
   increase of $2,000,000 for the repair and refurbishment of the grounds  
   and facilities of Fort Des Moines to support the establishment of the   
   historic OCS museum and memorial.                                       
       Joint Assessment Neurological Examination Equipment Upgrade for     
   combat medical specialist .--The Committee recommends an additional     
   $1,500,000 for the Army Medical Center and School to continue the joint 
   assessment neurological evaluation equipment upgrade for training and   
   sustainment proficiency of the combat medical specialist.               
       Range Safe Technology Demonstration .--The Committee urges the Army 
   to explore emerging technologies that treat low level radioactive waste 
   on site. Treatment on site would preclude hauling contaminated material 
   to approved and specifically designated landfills. The cost of tracking,
   transport and storage of radioactive waste to these landfills is        
   extremely costly and adds considerable expense to the overall cost of   
   the remediation. These new technologies offer promise that they would   
   result in significant savings.                                          
       Fort Knox MOUT Facility .--The Committee supports the full funding  
   by the Army of the base operations support for the MOUT facility at Fort
   Knox.                                                                   
       Firefighting Equipment Conveyance .--The Committee directs the      
   Secretary of the Army to consider conveying the firefighting equipment  
   at the Military Ocean Terminal, Bayonne (MOTBY) to the Bayonne Local    
   Redevelopment Authority and the City of Bayonne.                        
       Automatic identification technologies .--The extensive logistics and
   manufacturing capabilities within the Army can be substantially improved
   through a relatively small investment in expanding the application of   
   automatic identification technologies. Available commercial             
   off-the-shelf systems will readily improve inventory management, asset  
   tracking and distribution, as well as enhance in-process overhaul and   
   production activities. The Committee recommends that Rock Island Arsenal
   be included as a priority facility for the Department's Total Asset     
   Visibility Implementation Plan, which establishes the AIT road map for  
   tracking assets from production and overhaul through warehousing and    
   distribution, and other similar programs.

                          COMMITTEE ADJUSTMENTS                          

       Program reductions .--The Committee is concerned with the growing   
   difficulties experienced by the Navy in sustaining non-deployed         
   readiness. Past shortfalls in non-deployed readiness, and recruiting    
   programs have now degraded the readiness of deploying units. The        
   Committee has recommended program increases for weapons maintenance,    
   real property maintenance, ship depot maintenance and repair, and the   
   Shipyard Apprentice program. Programs such as Air Systems Support and   
   Fleet Ballistic Missile programs were decreased due to consistent under 
   execution of funds. Funding for the Pentagon renovation has been        
   transferred to the Pentagon renovation transfer fund.                   
       Barrow landfill .--Of the funds provided in this account, the       
   Committee directs the Department of the Navy to provide $3,000,000 for  
   costs associated with the closure of the Barrow landfill. The Department
   of Defense sited, developed, and managed this landfill for 31 years,    
   with the Naval Arctic Research Laboratory located at Barrow as the      
   primary user of the facility. The Committee urges the Department of     
   Defense to continue to work with the North Slope Borough in closing the 
   landfill and determining continuing funding responsibilities. These     
   funds should be provided to the appropriate local government entity.    
       Shipyard Apprenticeship Program .--The Committee recommends an      
   increase of $12,000,000 for the Shipyard Apprenticeship Program at the  
   public shipyards. The downsizing over the past decade at our Navy       
   shipyards has increased the average age of the shipyard worker to nearly
   45 years, and limited the ability of Navy managers to hire new          
   apprentices. The Committee believes this matter requires sustained      
   attention. Funds have been added to augment working capital funds and   
   other resources to ensure that this program is not forced to compete    
   with depot maintenance requirements. The Committee expects these funds  
   shall only be used to support apprentices, and that the funding provided
   shall be in addition to any other resources requested in the budget for 
   work force revitalization. The Committee directs the Navy to report to  
   the Appropriations Committees by April 1, 2000, on the status of this   
   program, by shipyard.                                                   
       Shipyard infrastructure repairs .--From within the funds provided   
   for the maintenance of real property, $9,900,000 may be used for the    
   repair of the Charleston Naval Shipyard, and $9,900,000 may be used for 
   the conversion of the former Philadelphia Naval Shipyard.               
       Propeller Maintenance and Overhaul .--The Committee directs the Navy
   to establish a pilot program for the purpose of verifying cost savings  
   that can be achieved through the use of a west coast propeller overhaul 
   facility. The Committee further directs that the selected facility      
   provide innovative repair processes and comprehensive training programs 
   proven to enhance propeller system reliability and enhance mission      
   readiness at reduced costs. The selected facility should be an FAA      
   authorized repair station capable of servicing applicable models of the 
   propeller system used on the target fleet of Western Pacific based C 130
   and P 3 aircraft.                                                       
      The Committee further directs the Navy to provide the Committee with 
   a cost benefit analysis that includes reliability improvement data      
   resulting from this study of a west coast pilot facility.               
       Sale of Navy Drydock No. 9 (AFDM 3) .--The lease covering Navy      
   Drydock No. 9 (AFDM 3) shall be deemed to include all clauses authorized
   by section 2667(b) of title 10, U.S. Code. The Secretary of the Navy is 
   directed to sell the drydock to the lessee at its fair market value, as 
   provided by that law, upon receipt of a written notice from the lessee  
   of its intent to exercise its option to purchase the leased property.   
   For purposes of this provision, the term ``fair market value'' means the
   value of the drydock in its present condition less the estimated cost of
   scrapping the vessel.                                                   
       Public Service Initiative .--The United States must ensure close    
   cooperation and understanding between the military and civil components 
   of society. Fewer people, including leaders, perform military service   
   now than in our recent history. As a pilot program, the Navy should work
   with the legislative branch center for public service to include        
   military service in its public service programs.

       Program reductions .--The Committee observes that the budget request
   for Marine Corps expeditionary forces readiness is below the levels     
   appropriated in fiscal year 1999. Past funding shortfalls in Navy and   
   Marine Corps non-deployed readiness activities have begun to degrade the
   readiness of deploying units. To mitigate this funding shortfall, the   
   Committee has recommended program increases for initial issue, real     
   property maintenance, distance learning and Marine-option NROTC. Funding
   for the Pentagon renovation has been transferred to the Pentagon        
   renovation transfer fund.

      The Committee recommends an appropriation of $20,760,429,000. This is

                          COMMITTEE ADJUSTMENTS                          

       Program reductions .--The Committee supports the Air Force efforts  
   to adapt force structure to the Air Expeditionary Force concept, and    
   remedy spare parts shortfalls. Air Force operation and maintenance      
   programs are generally growing at a rate greater than inflation. The    
   budget request sought general funding increases to some programs that   
   had not realized planned savings in prior years. The Committee          
   recommends several adjustments to programs with unjustified program     
   growth such as service-wide communications, and contract costs. Other   
   programs such as Space Control Systems, Launch Vehicles, and Arms       
   Control have experienced under execution of funds. Funding for the      
   Pentagon renovation has been transferred to the Pentagon renovation     
   transfer fund.                                                          
       B 52 attrition reserve aircraft .--Despite the clear direction of   
   the Committee, which was provided in Senate Report 105 200, the Air     
   Force has decided to reduce the total aircraft inventory of B 52s during
   fiscal year 2000. The Committee has provided sufficient operation and   
   maintenance funding to support a force structure of 94 aircraft. No     
   later than June 1, 2000, the Secretary of the Air Force shall report to 
   the Committee any intention or proposal to reduce the B 52s from the    
   level directed. Additionally, the Committee directs the Air Force to    
   treat all 94 B 52s now in the force structure as aircraft to be retained
   for the six year period beginning October 1, 1999.                      
       Myrtle Beach Air Force Base .--The Committee urges the Air Force to 
   initiate environmental restoration at this site to correct long-standing
   environmental concerns.                                                 
       Radioactive iodine experimentation .--The Committee strongly        
   supports the progress that the Air Force has made in resolving the claim
   filed on behalf of the Inupiat Eskimos who were subjected to radioactive
   iodine 131 experimentation by the Air Force in the mid-1950's. The      
   Committee directs the Secretary of the Air Force to report to the       
   congressional defense committees on the resolution of this matter no    
   later than October 15, 1999.                                            
       Air Force Plant No. 3 .--The Committee encourages the Secretary of  
   the Air Force to transfer by deed to the City of Tulsa, Oklahoma, all of
   the property known as Air Force Plant No. 3. The Committee strongly     
   urges the Air Force to work cooperatively with the City of Tulsa to     
   mitigate the remaining environmental contamination on this property as  
   expeditiously as possible. The Committee directs the Secretary of the   
   Air Force to report on the status of the title transfer no later than   
   December 15, 1999.                                                      
       Global Combat Support System-Air Force (GCSS AF) .--The Committee is
   pleased with the Air Force's progress on the modernization and          
   integration of critical combat support systems under the Global Combat  
   Support System-Air Force (GCSS AF) contract. This activity is important 
   to future combat readiness and is a major step toward interoperability  
   between the combat support systems of all services. The key to the      
   success of this effort is the underlying foundation of system           
   architecture and integration. The many benefits to be gained from       
   continued modernization and integration work under the GCSS AF contract 
   are clear, particularly in terms of reduced long-term maintenance costs 
   for outdated legacy systems.                                            
       Tinker and Altus Air Force Base repairs .--The Committee recommends 
   an increase of $25,000,000 to real property maintenance to provide for  
   the repair of damages resulting from tornadoes in May of 1999. The Air  
   Force shall fund fully all military personnel and flying hour costs     
   related to the restoration of these bases.                              
       Air Force Technical Applications Center .--Preventing the           
   proliferation of nuclear weapons is one of the most important issues    
   facing the U.S. today. Multiple nuclear tests detonated by India and    
   Pakistan emphasize the need for a continued strong nuclear monitoring   
   capability. The Committee has funded fully the budget request for Air   
   Force Technical Applications Center's (AFTAC) and strongly encourages   
   AFTAC to make meeting its operational nuclear test monitoring           
   responsibilities a first priority within these available funds.

       Defense Threat Reduction and Treaty Compliance Agency .--The        
   Committee has reduced funding by $15,500,000 as a result of anticipated 
   delays in treaty implementation and scheduled inspections. If additional
   funding is required to meet emergent requirements stemming from valid   
   treaty obligations, the Committee expects the Department of Defense to  
   submit a reprogramming request subject to normal, prior approval        
   reprogramming procedures.                                               
       Procurement Technical Assistance Program [PTAP] .--The Committee    
   commends the Department for fully funding the Procurement Technical     
   Assistance Program and subsequently provides full funding for this      
   worthwhile initiative. PTAP shall continue to be designated a special   
   interest program, with written approval by the Appropriations Committees
   required prior to any below-threshold reprogramming from this line.     
       Pine Bluff Arsenal Sustainment Training and Technical Assistance    
   Program .--The Committee directs the Department of Defense to establish 
   a Sustainment Training and Technical Assistance Program at Pine Bluff   
   Arsenal, AR for chemical and biological defense equipment in support of 
   the Department of Justice equipment grant program.                      
       Special Education Support .--The Committee recommends an increase of
   $5,000,000 above the budget request to increase assistance to those     
   schools in the United States with high concentrations of special needs  
   children, particularly those which are considered overseas assignments. 
   The Committee understands that the amounts currently provided by the    
   Federal government are insufficient to provide fully for the            
   requirements of those schools that have large special needs populations 
   of military dependents.                                                 
                          OTHER DEFENSE PROGRAMS                         

       Legacy Program .--The Committee has provided $15,000,000 for        
   continuation of the Legacy Program and directs the Department to provide
   adequate funding for this program in fiscal year 2001. From within these
   extra funds, the Committee expects the Department to proceed with the   
   preparation and execution of conservation plans to raise and preserve   
   the submarine Hunley.                                                   
      Additionally, the Committee supports a major expansion and renovation
   of the U.S.S. Constitution Museum and its archive and artifact storage  
   area planned as part of the museum's preparation for the new millennium.
   This project will dramatically improve both the preservation and public 
   access for more than 10,000 items form the U.S.S. Constitution's        
   history.                                                                
      From within the funds provided, the Department should proceed with   
   the recovery of artifacts from the Confederate Civil War ship, C.S.S.   
   Alabama .                                                               
       Outsourcing and Privatization .--The Secretary of Defense shall     
   submit to the defense committees, by March 15, 2000, a report that      
   includes the following elements: (a) the size of the private sector     
   workforce performing contracts for the Department of Defense; (b) a cost
   analysis of contracts awarded pursuant to OMB Circular A 76 in the last 
   five years that compares the cost of the federal employee contract at   
   the time of competition to the actual cost of the contract; (c) the     
   savings that are assumed in the fiscal year 2000 budget submissions of  
   each of the armed services due to outsourcing and privatization         
   activities; (d) an analysis of the amount and value of contracts that   
   were awarded to private contractors through OMB Circular A 76 versus    
   other mechanisms; and (e) the dates for renewal for contracts of more   
   than $2,000,000 that were awarded pursuant to OMB Circular A 76.        
       Streamlining Acquisition of Environmentally Preferable Products     
   .--Pollution prevention activities by the Department of Defense continue
   to prove financially viable with both short and long term financial     
   savings. An important element of pollution prevention is the purchase of
   environmentally preferable products (EPPs), as defined by Executive     
   Order 13101. Accordingly, the Committee urges the Department of Defense 
   to provide adequate resources for efforts toward implementation of the  
   Executive Order. Further, the Department should examine the feasibility 
   of providing resources for interagency activities for the development of
   environmental preferability standards by appropriate Federal agencies or
   nongovernmental organizations.                                          
                         CIVIL-MILITARY PROGRAMS                         

      The Committee continues to support the Department's civil-military   
   programs and provides a total of $88,503,000 for fiscal year 2000 as    
   follows:

           Total                         88,394



      The Committee directs the Department to report to the Committee on   
   Appropriations on the status of the obligation of these funds not later 
   than March 15, 2000.                                                    
       Innovative Readiness Training .--The Department has conducted       
   civil-military innovative readiness training (IRT) throughout the United
   States since the early 1990's. Through the use of Active and Reserve    
   component personnel, this program provides community support in the     
   areas of health care, engineering, and infrastructure. These combat     
   support and service support units gain valuable hands-on mission        
   essential training. The Committee continues to strongly support this    
   realistic training. The Committee believes that the Department should   
   expand the scope of the readiness initiatives to include native American
   groups when appropriate and compatible with mission requirements.

       HMMWV Contract Maintenance .--The Committee urges the Army Reserve  
   to consider contract maintenance for their light tactical vehicle fleet.
       Modern Burner Unit .--The Committee understands that improving Army 
   field feeding equipment is a major priority of the U.S. Army. The Modern
   Burner Unit (MBU) was developed to replace the gasoline burning M2      
   currently used in all Army field-feeding applications. The MBU          
   eliminates the pressurized fuel system of the M2 and uses electronically
   controlled components to decrease the production of hazardous emissions.
   Fielding of the MBU directly supports the quality of life, safety and   
   the combat effectiveness of the soldier. The Committee encourages the   
   Army Reserve to identify the necessary resources to continue the        
   fielding of this system to key units.

       National Missile Defense Planning Cell .--During fiscal year 2000,  
   the Department of Defense will conduct a Deployment Readiness Review to 
   assess the feasibility of deploying an operational national missile     
   defense (NMD) system to defend the United States against a limited      
   strategic ballistic missile threat. The National Guard will play an     
   integral role in manning and maintaining this ``one-of-a-kind'' system. 
   The Committee strongly encourages the National Guard Bureau to create a 
   dedicated NMD planning cell to facilitate coordination and integration  
   between the Ballistic Missile Defense NMD Joint Program Office, Corps of
   Engineers, Department of the Army, Guard Bureau and the lead system     
   integrator.                                                             
      The Committee recommends the identification and selection of National
   Guard personnel to actively participate in planning and development of  
   doctrine regarding the NMD system. The Committee believes that manning  
   for this system will require innovative doctrine and planning           
   development to meet the challenges in recruiting, training, and         
   educating the personnel that will man this national asset. Additional   
   funding provided in this section for full-time Guard manning will       
   accommodate this requirement for a planning cell. The Committee directs 
   the Secretary of the Army to report to the congressional defense        
   subcommittees on the status of the National Guard assuming this mission,
   creation of a planning cell, and development of associated NMD doctrine 
   and concept of operations. This report should be provided not later than
   April 15, 2000.                                                         
       Real property maintenance, Army National Guard .--During the past   
   several years, the Committee provided an increase for in-house recurring
   maintenance and day-to-day repairs, as well as in-house and contract    
   projects required to maintain, repair, and adapt facility infrastructure
   to meet mission needs. The Committee intends for these funds to be used 
   to reduce the growing Army National Guard real property maintenance     
   project backlog within the 54 Army Guard organizations, not for studies 
   or other administrative functions. The funds provided under this heading
   are in addition to any other funds appropriated to the Army for real    
   property maintenance on behalf of the Army National Guard. The Committee
   directs the Chief of the National Guard Bureau provide to the Committee 
   of Appropriations a report detailing how these funds will be allocated  
   not later than March 15, 2000.                                          
       Distance learning initiative.-- The Committee provides an increase  
   of $45,000,000 in the Army National Guard ``Operation and maintenance'' 
   appropriation and $45,000,000 in the ``Other procurement, Army''        
   appropriation for distance learning and information management          
   requirements. The Committee continues to support the regional distance  
   learning initiative and creation of a distance learning network to      
   reduce costs of training soldiers, as well as to track personnel and    
   equipment inventories. The program is now fielded nationwide to include 
   the territories.                                                        
      The Committee urges the National Guard Bureau to examine partnering  
   opportunities with universities and state governments that would        
   facilitate community involvement in this network and enhance its long   
   term viability.                                                         
      The Committee directs that funding for the distance learning network 
   be spent only for expansion and continuation of the program. The        
   Committee further directs the National Guard Bureau provide to the      
   congressional defense committees a report on how the Department intends 
   to allocate funding for the distance learning program in fiscal year    
   2000 not later than February 15, 2000.                                  
       Project Management System Pilot Project .--The Committee understands
   that the National Guard Bureau has begun to implement a Project         
   Management System Pilot Program which will provide a fully integrated,  
   scheduling and financial project management system. This system, which  
   uses commercially developed off-the-shelf technology, will present      
   essential information to decision makers in a timely manner. The        
   Committee urges the Department of Defense to review it applicability for
   use throughout the Department.                                          
       BASE PACE .--The Committee believes that in the future the most     
   cost-effective means of military education will be distributive         
   learning, with basic computer skills providing the foundation. The      
   Committee is aware that the Distributive Technologies Innovation Center 
   of the U.S. Army National Guard Training and Technology Battle Lab has  
   developed the BASE PACE pilot program to provide distributive learning  
   opportunities to improve military occupational speciality skills. The   
   Committee urges the Department to continue this important program.      
       Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) .--The Committee understands
   that the National Guard has initiated a pilot program to protect        
   intra-state computer networks. The five states that currently have teams
   have expressed support for this new innovative concept. The Committee   
   encourages the National Guard Bureau to assess the requirement and      
   feasibility of expanding this initiative.                               
       Net Trooper Program .--With the tremendous growth of distance       
   learning initiatives throughout the Department of Defense, the Committee
   believes that all military personnel need the appropriate tools and     
   training to maximize these opportunities. The Net Trooper program       
   provides an advanced computer and Internet learning tool that appears to
   have great potential in meeting these goals. The Committee urges the    
   National Guard Bureau to consider this software for incorporation into  
   its distance learning program.                                          
       First responder missions .--The Committee encourages the National   
   Guard Bureau to give consideration to the Washington Army National Guard
   at Camp Murray for development and enhancement of courseware development
   and commercially available off-the-shelf (COTS) management system       
   software and hardware to meet unfunded Army National Guard functional   
   training requirements for ``first responder'' missions such as weapons  
   of mass destruction, information operations and the Rapid Assessment and
   Initial Detection (RAID) teams.

      The Committee recommends an appropriation of $3,229,638,000. This is 
   $130,020,000 above the President's budget.

       C 130 operations .--The Committee recognizes the increased demand   
   placed on C 130 aircraft operations within the Air National Guard and   
   has provided $5,000,000 to address increased operations, maintenance,   
   and supports costs. Such funds are intended to support both the C 130   
   aircraft assigned to operational squadrons and for full coverage of the 
   cost of operating and maintaining those stand alone aircraft currently  
   utilized by selected States.                                            
       Air National Guard Civil Engineer Force Structure .--The Committee  
   understands that the Air Force is reassessing its total civil engineer  
   requirements in light of emerging Expeditionary Aerospace Force (EAF)   
   and weapons of mass destruction initiatives. Currently, the Air Guard   
   civil engineering force is programmed to lose many key specialities to  
   include engineering, electrical power production,                       
   heating/ventilation/air conditioning, pavements, structural, utilities, 
   liquid fuels, environmental, operations, fire protection and readiness. 
   The Air Guard's capabilities to support the total force contingency and 
   wartime taskings will be drastically reduced by these projected manpower
   reductions.                                                             
      The Committee directs the Secretary of the Air Force to report to the
   congressional defense committees on the Air Force plan to realign the   
   total civil engineer force structure and its future ability to support  
   wartime requirements in this area no later than November 15, 1999.      
       Fort Belknap Training Range .--The Committee provides an additional 
   $2,000,000 for studies required for the Fort Belknap Training Range.    
       Defense Systems Evaluation (DSE) .--Of the funds provided under this
   heading, the Committee directs that $2,500,000 be used to continue DSE  
   service to the White Sands Missile Range.                               
       C\4\ Systems Support .--The Committee has learned that the recent   
   conversion of two active Air Force bases to C 17 training and daily     
   operations revealed deficiencies in communications infrastructure, which
   provided significant impediment to the bases' efficient conversion. The 
   Committee is also aware that the Air National Guard unit, which will    
   receive the first Air National Guard C 17 aircraft, also suffers from   
   communications obsolescence. To ensure that this Air Guard unit and     
   bed-down location meet the increased technical requirements of Command, 
   Control, Communication and Computers (C\4\), the Air Force is directed  
   to review the capabilities of this unit and provide a detailed report to
   the Committee by 1 November 1999. The report shall include the Air      
   Force's plans to ensure that the required base infrastructure           
   improvements are completed at this location prior to the arrival of the 
   first C 17 aircraft.                                                    

              OVERSEAS CONTINGENCY OPERATIONS TRANSFER FUND              




          Appropriations, 1999           $439,400,000



          Budget estimate, 2000                2,387,600,000



          Committee recommendation                2,087,600,000



       Contingency Operations .--During 1997, the Department of Defense    
   established a Readiness panel as part of the Quadrennial Defense Review.
   The Readiness panel considered several methods for funding the cost of  
   peacekeeping operations, having recognized that the administration's    
   policy of engaging in indefinite peacekeeping operations was causing a  
   migration of funds from modernization to operation and maintenance      
   activities. The Secretary of Defense chose not to implement any of the  
   funding alternatives presented by the Readiness panel.                  
      The Committee is concerned that after two years from the inception of
   the QDR, the Department of Defense has failed to establish a consistent 
   policy for the equitable funding of contingency operations across the   
   Armed Services. For example, by classifying standard operation and      
   maintenance activities at bases within the continental U.S. (such as    
   real property maintenance, base operations, civilian personnel costs,   
   range upgrades, and weapons and vehicle maintenance), as incremental    
   costs, the Army has funded these activities as contingency operations.  
   The costs of training preparation for Bosnia ground units, moreover, are
   no longer incremental, as these units have been identified long in      
   advance of deployment. The Air Force, in fiscal year 1998, expended     
   contingency costs in nearly every subactivity group within the O&M      
   appropriation. The Navy routinely funds the costs of contingencies and  
   deployments from within available O&M funding. Further confusing the    
   Department's funding of contingencies is the financing of second        
   destination transportation for Bosnia from Defense Working Capital Fund 
   cash resources.                                                         
      In light of this misuse of the Overseas Contingency Operations       
   Transfer Fund, and the reduction in personnel supporting operations in  
   Bosnia subsequent to the submission of the budget estimate, the request 
   is reduced by $300,000,000.                                             
      The Department, moreover, was provided additional supplemental       
   contingency funding for fiscal year 1999 as described in H.R. 1141, as  
   enacted.                                                                
      The Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) shall continue to notify
   the defense subcommittees 30 days in advance if the Department expects  
   to exceed the total allotment for a given contingency and to provide    
   quarterly reports to the defense subcommittees. These reports shall     
   include amounts transferred and the requirements funded, in the same    
   format as provided in supplemental and reprogramming requests.

          Committee recommendation                7,621,000



      The Committee recommends an appropriation of $7,621,000 for          
   activities of the Court of Military Appeals for fiscal year 2000.       

                                 ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION                        




          Total Appropriations, 1999                $1,268,431,000



          Budget estimate, 2000                1,263,554,000



          Committee recommendation                1,303,554,000



      The Committee recommends a total amount for environmental restoration
   of $1,303,554,000. This is $40,000,000 above the budget estimate.       
       Environmental Contracting .--The Committee remains concerned with   
   the degree that the Department of Defense is using large Indefinite     
   Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts, such as the Remedial     
   Action Contract (RAC) and the Total Environmental Restoration Contract  
   (TERC), to execute their overall environmental restoration program. Some
   of these contract awards have dollar values of more than $300,000,000,  
   encompass a broad geographic area and can remain in effect over a       
   ten-year period.                                                        
      For example, the Navy executed 35 percent of its environmental       
   remediation program in fiscal year 1998 using RAC contracts. This       
   contracting strategy was originally envisioned for clean up requirements
   that were high priority, complex and time sensitive. However, IDIQ      
   contracts have become the preferred contractual vehicle for             
   environmental work throughout the Department. While the Committee       
   recognizes the need for flexibility in environmental contracting, the   
   use of these large, undefinitized contracts often precludes local       
   contractor and small business involvement in DOD's clean up work.       
      Accordingly, the Committee directs that not more than 25 percent of  
   funding obligated to the Department of Defense for environmental        
   remediation shall be executed through indefinite delivery/indefinite    
   quantity contracts with a total contract amount of $130,000,000 or      
   higher. Further, the Committee directs that the Secretary of Defense    
   report to the congressional defense committees not later than January   
   15, 2000, on their use of IDIQ contracts during fiscal year 1999, and   
   that this information be provided quarterly throughout fiscal year 2000.
       Compliance with defense acquisition regulations .--For environmental
   restoration projects subject to the terms of section 52.2222 of the     
   Defense Federal acquisition regulations [DFAR], the Committee directs   
   that any awardee of contracts for such projects exceeding $1,000,000    
   shall submit a plan for compliance with section 52.2222 of the DFAR to  
   the appropriate contracting office not later than 90 days after contract
   award.                                                                  
       Notification of environmental contract awards .--The Committee      
   remains concerned that the Department failed to fully accomplish the    
   Committee's intent regarding adequate notification of the projects      
   funded by this account. To ensure the Department complies with this     
   direction, each military service shall notify interested State and local
   authorities and interested Members of Congress upon release of draft    
   solicitations for contracts anticipated to exceed $5,000,000. The       
   Committee directs that this requirement shall apply to all increments of
   indefinite delivery indefinite quantity-type contracts which meet this  
   threshold.                                                              
   The Committee has provided the following funding for each service:

   recommendations proposed by the Committee. These adjustments reflect the
   following committee actions: elimination of funds requested for programs
   which are lower priority, duplicative or not supported by firm          
   requirements or out-year development and procurement funds; deletion of 
   excess funds based on program delays or slow execution; addition of     
   funds to reflect congressional priorities and to rectify shortfalls in  
   the budget request for activities; and implementation of recommendations
   reported in the Senate bill authorizing programs and activities of the  
   Department of Defense [DOD] for fiscal year 2000.

       UH 60 Helicopters .--The Committee recommends an addition of        
   $121,000,000 for the purchase of 6 UH 60L and 5 UH 60Q model            
   helicopters. The Committee directs the six UH 60L's shall be made       
   available to the Army National Guard.                                   
       AH 64 Apache Longbow .--The Committee believes the Army decision to 
   reduce the Apache Longbow inventory objective is short sighted and      
   unaffordable. The new plan to adjust the Apache Longbow inventory to 530
   helicopters and 500 radars from the plan of 748 helicopters and 227     
   radars has several implications which the Army did not fund. First, the 
   remaining A-model Apaches will now require a service life extension     
   program and will force the Army to maintain unique support equipment,   
   spares, and training--all currently unfunded in Army budget plans.      
   Further, the Army has not fully funded the additional fire control      
   radars and engine modifications. Finally, this unaffordable Army        
   decision ignores the doctrinal plan to rely on a single fire control    
   radar-equipped Apache to support multiple Longbow-capable Apaches.      
      The Committee believes the previous Apache Longbow acquisition       
   strategy was more appropriate to the Army's requirements, operating     
   doctrine and budget resources. The Committee directs the Army to develop
   an affordable, fully budgeted plan for the Apache Longbow program. The  
   Committee directs the Secretary of the Army to submit a report on this  
   plan with the fiscal year 2001 Department of Defense budget request.    
       Kiowa Warrior .--The Committee has provided an increase of          
   $2,600,000 for Crew Station Mission Equipment Trainers (CSMET). CSMET   
   supports Army Aviation requirements for the new, higher fidelity Kiowa  
   Warrior Crew Trainer (KWCT) of the future. The Committee understands    
   that this change will integrate CSMET equipment with the KWCT program   
   that will include sensor and gunnery training.

          Committee recommendation                1,267,698,000



      The Committee recommends an appropriation of $1,267,698,000 for the  
   Army's fiscal year 2000 ``Missile procurement'' account. The Committee's
   recommended funding level is $90,406,000 below the budget request.      
      This appropriation finances the procurement, production,             
   modification, and modernization of missiles, equipment, including       
   ordnance, ground handling equipment, spare parts, and accessories       
   therefore; specialized equipment and training devices; expansion of     
   public and private plants, including the land necessary therefore, for  
   the foregoing purposes, and such lands and interest therein, may be     
   acquired, and construction prosecuted thereon prior to approval title;  
   and procurement and installation of equipment, appliances, and machine  
   tools in public and private plants; reserve plant and Government- and

       M 88A2 improved recovery vehicle .--The M 88A2 IRV is now being     
   fielded to Army armor units to alleviate significant safety problems in 
   recovery operations of M 1 tanks. The Committee is concerned that the   
   Army has not funded procurement of the M 88A2 IRV in fiscal year 2000.  
   The Army should continue this important program at an economic          
   production rate until the service has achieved its inventory requirement
   for tank recovery vehicles.

       Tactical trailers/dolly sets .--The Committee recommends an         
   additional $6,000,000 in tactical trailers/dolly sets only for the      
   self-load/off-load trailer [SLOT].                                      
       Secure mobile antijam reliable tactical terminal (SMART T)          
   .--According to a recent review by the Director, Operational Test and   
   Evaluation, operational effectiveness of the SMART T has not been       
   demonstrated. According to this review, ``the SMART T is not            
   operationally suitable due to numerous training, soldier efficiency, RAM
   [reliability, availability, and maintainability], and integrated support
   logistics issues.'' The Report recommended that production of the SMART 
   T should be ``specifically limited to the first option (91) terminals'' 
   while additional testing and assessment proceeds. The Army has already  
   acquired in excess of this number of terminals. Therefore, the Committee
   recommends a reduction of $10,000,000.                                  
       Warfighter Information Network .--The Committee recommends an       
   increase of $40,000,000 to procure additional AN/TTC 56 single shelter  
   switches with associated support assemblages and network management     
   capability.                                                             
       Secure terminal equipment .--The Committee recommends an additional 
   $12,500,000 in the Information System Security Program [ISSP], of which 
   $6,000,000 is for the Tactical Secure Terminal Equipment Program,       
   $5,000,000 is for the MX5T Secure Information System, and $1,500,000 is 
   for the Portable Uninterruptable Universal Power Supply System.         
       Multi-Purpose Range Targetry Electronics .--To ensure timely and    
   efficient execution of all phases of the Multi-Purpose Range            
   Complex-Heavy at Camp Shelby, on which construction will begin in fiscal
   year 2000, the Committee recommends an additional $5,100,000 in the     
   Worldwide Technical Control Improvement Program (WWTCIP) to procure the 
   Targetry electronics to be placed underground during the early phase of 
   the project.                                                            
       Night Vision Equipment .--The Committee recommends an additional    
   $50,000,000 for night vision equipment. The Committee agrees that the   
   night vision equipment account shall be executed by the Army with       
   priority interest given to the following items: AN/PAS 13 Thermal Weapon
   Sights; AN/PEQ 2A Target Pointer Illuminator Aiming Lights (TPIAL);     
   Tactical Surveillance Night Vision Devices; AN/PAC 4C Infrared Aiming   
   Lights; AN/AVS 5 Driver's Vision Enhancer (DVE); AN/PVS 4 and AN/TVS 5  
   night vision devices; AN/PVS 7D night vision devices; 25mm generation   
   III image intensifier tubes.                                            
       Modification of in-service equipment .--The Committee is concerned  
   about reports that the Firefinder radar system has suffered from high   
   false alarm rates in urban environments during recent deployments. The  
   Committee recommends an increase of $8,100,000 to modify in-service     
   systems and approve system reliability.                                 
       High mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle .--The Committee has     
   recommended the procurement of up-armored High Mobility Multipurpose    
   Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV) at a level consistent with the President's     
   budget request. The HMMWV, including its up-armored variant, fulfills a 
   number of critical mission requirements and has demonstrated its        
   capabilities in peacekeeping operations in Bosnia. The Committee is     
   aware that the potential for extended military operations in the former 
   Yugoslavia could require additional up-armored HMMWVs beyond those      
   requested in the President's budget. The Army shall provide to the      
   Committee a report outlining potential needs for additional up-armored  
   HMMWVs by December 1, 2000.                                             
       Striker-Command and Control System .--The Committee recommends an   
   additional $10,000,000 in the Striker-Command and Control System, of    
   which $5,000,000 is for the Striker HMMWV based targeting platform for  
   Combat Observing Lazer Teams (COLT), and $5,000,000 is for the          
   procurement of test program sets for the Bradley Striker Program.       
       LOGTECH .--The Committee recommends an additional $5,000,000 in     
   LOGTECH for Army Automatic Identification Technology (AIT) Integration  
   efforts for maintenance processes and automated information systems.    
       Ribbon bridge .--New Multi-Role Bridge Companies (MRBC) are being   
   established in the U.S. Army and the U.S. Army National Guard. The Guard
   is a key element in the total Army Engineer bridge force. The MRBC is   
   the doctrinal response to the needed restructure of the current bridge  
   companies to safeguard bridging stocks, improve the training of bridge  
   builders, and retain bridging capabilities required by maneuver         
   commanders. The Committee recommends $13,500,000 to procure the key     
   equipment items that are required to create one MRBC.                   
       Lightweight Maintenance Enclosure (LME) .--The Committee recommends 
   an additional $3,200,000 in the Lightweight Maintenance Enclosure (LME) 
   program.                                                                
       Water purification systems .--The Committee recommends an additional
   $3,000,000 for additional 3,000 gallon per hour tactical water          
   purification systems (TWPS).                                            
       Combat support medical .--The Committee recommends an additional    
   $4,000,000 in the Combat Support Medical line to acquire additional Life
   Support for Trauma and Transport (LSTAT) units in order to achieve      
   Initial Operational Capability (IOC) of the system.                     
       Combat training centers support .--The Committee recommends an      
   increase of $7,000,000 to establish a deployable force-on-force         
   instrumentation range system (DFIRST) pilot program. The Committee      
   directs the Secretary of the Army to provide a report on the results of 
   the pilot program and the potential future use of DFIRST as a training  
   enhancement for reserve component training requirements. Additionally,  
   the Committee recommends an increase of $3,000,000 to complete          
   instrumentation for the JRTC MOUT site at Fort Polk, Louisiana.         
       Training devices, nonsystem .--The Committee recommends an          
   additional $3,500,000 for the Improved Moving Target Simulator Upgrade  
   Program.                                                                
       Modification of in-service equipment (OPA 3) .--The Committee       
   recommends an additional $8,000,000 for the Army's Commercial           
   Construction Equipment (CCE) Service Life Extension Program (SLEP).     
       REMBASS II .--The Committee recommends that the Army examine the    
   option applying additional funds to the Remotely Monitored Battlefield  
   Sensor System (REMBASS) II, an all-weather battlefield intelligence     
   support system that is about one-third the weight and one-quarter the   
   cost of its predecessor, the Improved REMBASS (IREMBASS).

   recommendations proposed by the Committee. These adjustments reflect the
   following committee actions: elimination of funds requested for programs
   which are lower priority, duplicative or not supported by firm          
   requirements or out-year development and procurement funds; deletion of 
   excess funds based on program delays or slow execution; addition of     
   funds to reflect congressional priorities and to rectify shortfalls in  
   the budget request for activities; and implementation of recommendations
   reported in the Senate bill authorizing programs and activities of the  
   Department of Defense [DOD] for fiscal year 2000.

       C 135 .--The Committee understands that there are a number of       
   commercial engines which could enhance the capability, improve the      
   performance, and lower the maintenance costs of 707-based aircraft. The 
   Committee also understands that the existing strong market for such     
   commercial engines may permit DOD to lease these engines at favorable   
   rates and with little or no lease termination liability. Accelerated    
   reengining through leasing will allow DOD to realize substantial        
   operations and maintenance cost savings on 707 platforms. Excepting     
   Rivet Joint aircraft, the Committee believes any further re-engining of 
   C 135 aircraft should be completed through a competitive program to     
   lease commercial engines.                                               
      The Committee directs that the Department of Defense initiate a pilot
   program to re-engine the Joint Stars fleet with leased commercial       
   engines. The Committee directs that the Deputy Secretary of Defense     
   provide a report detailing DoD's schedule and budget for re-engining    
   JSTARS aircraft with the fiscal year 2001 budget submission.            
       Theater airborne warning sensor [TAWS] .--At the direction of the   
   Congress, the Department of Defense reevaluated the need for airborne   
   infrared detection and tracking of theater ballistic missiles. Based on 
   this analysis, DOD concluded that the airborne warning and control      
   system [AWACS] Eagle and Rivet Joint TAWS efforts should be brought to  
   an orderly termination with the results transferred to the Airborne     
   Laser [ABL] Program, a system which inherently provides this detection  
   capability.                                                             
      The Committee endorses the Department of Defense conclusion on       
   airborne infrared system requirements. Since DOD completed its          
   assessment, development efforts have proceeded successfully on a new    
   generation of ballistic missile warning sensors. Every Aegis ship can   
   now detect and track theater ballistic missiles, providing a more       
   accurate estimate of the launch point and impact point than TAWS.       
   Further, the availability of upgraded Patriot advanced capability 3 [PAC
   3] missile radars and THAAD ground-based radars [GBR] have significantly
   advanced the Pentagon's ground-based missile tracking capability. Thus, 
   the Committee endorses bringing the TAWS Program to an orderly          
   conclusion and transferring any lessons learned to the ABL Program.     
       C 17 .--The Committee is aware of the recent unsolicited proposal to
   provide the Air Force with 60 additional C 17 aircraft. This proposal   
   offers a cost-effective way for the Air Force to meet the continually   
   growing airlift demands of today's mobile force. The Committee further  
   recognizes that current C 17 inventory and basing plans will not meet   
   the timelines and lift requirements of Pacific theater airlift missions.
   Already, we are learning from the Kosovo missions that the airlift      
   demand can quickly outstrip supply when we suddenly are required to     
   build the capability to operate from an austere airfield.               
      With these thoughts in mind, the Committee has provided new          
   multi-year procurement authority to allow the Air Force to enter into   
   negotiations on the procurement of sixty additional C 17's. The         
   Committee understands that timely Air Force decisions on the sharing of 
   current C 17 production incentive funds will ensure that this new C 17  
   multi-year procurement option and favorable price are available to the  
   Department of Defense.                                                  
       F 16 .--The Committee has provided an increase of $50,000,000 to the
   budget request to permit the Department of Defense to purchase 12 F 16  
   aircraft in fiscal year 2000. The Committee previously recognized the   
   need to modernize Guard and Reserve units which are operating F 16      
   aircraft which are reaching the end of their service life. The Committee
   believes the requirements of these units must be met and supports the   
   Air Force strategy to purchase new aircraft and then make reallocations 
   of the the F 16 inventory. To enable the cost effective procurement of  
   additional F 16's, the Committee has provided $24,000,000 and multi-year
   procurement authority to permit the purchase of 12 F 16's in fiscal year
   2001.                                                                   
       Passenger Safety Modifications .--The Committee has provided        
   $40,000,000 for passenger safety modifications. The Committee directs   
   that these funds shall be available to the Air Force to satisfy the     
   requirements to modify aircraft with improved passenger safety systems  
   and to comply with Global Air Traffic Management (GATM) standards. These
   funds are also available for the addition of Terrain Awareness and      
   Warning System (TAWS) to KC 10, C 135, C 20, and T 43 aircraft.         
       On Board Oxygen Generating System (OBOGS) .--The Committee is       
   concerned by the Air Force's lack of progress on the OBOGS program. The 
   Congress provided specific direction regarding OBOGS in the reports     
   accompanying the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 1999. The    
   Committee directs the Secretary of the Air Force to provide a report no 
   later than October 15, 1999, outlining the specific steps the Air Force 
   has taken to comply with the Congress' directive language. The report   
   should further address the costs and potential cost savings of OBOGS    
   installations in appropriate aircraft, across the fleet or at selected  
   installations.                                                          
      The Committee is also disturbed that the Department of Defense has   
   not considered all potential sources of OBOGS equipment, particularly   
   qualified small businesses. The Committee directs that OBOGS purchases  
   and installations be made based on full and open competitive            
   procurements which allow all potential vendors a fair and equal         
   opportunity to provide OBOGS equipment.

       Sensor Fuzed Weapon (SFW) .--The Committee is encouraged by the Air 
   Force's progress on the SFW Pre-Planned Product Improvement (P\3\I)     
   program. The Air Force has stated that the minimum sustaining rate for  
   sensor fuzed weapon is 300 per year. The Committee is satisfied with the
   Air Force's plan to use fiscal year 1999 appropriations to procure      
   baseline SFWs at a minimum sustaining rate of 300 rounds per year. In   
   order to make up the shortfall in P\3\I procurement and to keep the     
   program on track, the Committee provides $8,000,000 for the procurement 
   of P\3\I SFW in fiscal year 2000.

   funds to reflect congressional priorities and to rectify shortfalls in  
   the budget request for activities; and implementation of recommendations

   recommendations proposed by the Committee. These adjustments reflect the
   following committee actions: elimination of funds requested for programs
   which are lower priority, duplicative or not supported by firm          
   requirements or out-year development and procurement funds; deletion of 
   excess funds based on program delays or slow execution; addition of     
   funds to reflect congressional priorities and to rectify shortfalls in  
   the budget request for activities; and implementation of recommendations
   reported in the Senate bill authorizing programs and activities of the  
   Department of Defense [DOD] for fiscal year 2000.

       ASVS .--The Committee recommends that the Department examine        
   expediting the transition to ``dry'' digital methods for the collection 
   data during aircraft and aircraft weapons separation testing and other  
   high-speed events. Currently, the Services use 16mm and 35mm ``wet''    
   film cameras for such test recording, which is costly, time-consuming,  
   and environmentally damaging. A ``dry'' system, such as the Airborne    
   Separation Video System (ASVS), would afford a high-frame rate digital, 
   color imaging system with higher resolution, a smaller remote sensor, no
   environmental waste-product, and potential for tremendous savings.

          Committee recommendation                300,000,000



      The Committee recommends a funding level of $300,000,000 for National
   Guard and Reserve dedicated equipment. This recommendation is           
   $300,000,000 above the budget request.                                  
      The appropriation for this account includes direction for each       
   Reserve or National Guard component commander to prepare and submit to  
   the congressional defense committees a detailed assessment of that      
   component's modernization priorities.                                   
      The Committee maintains that the Reserves and National Guard should  
   exercise control of funds provided for their modernization in this      
   account. The separate submission of these assessments, directly from the
   components chiefs to the committees will ensure that the Reserve and    
   National Guard priorities are addressed in the allocation of this       
   appropriation.

                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS                        

      The Committee has reflected a number of its funding adjustments in a 
   table format. The Committee directs that the funding increases outlined 
   in the tables which follow shall be provided only for the specific      
   purposes outlined in the table entry.                                   
                     RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST, AND EVALUATION, ARMY            




          Appropriations, 1999           $5,031,788,000



          Budget estimate, 2000                4,426,194,000



          Committee recommendation                4,905,294,000



      The Committee recommends an appropriation of $4,905,294,000 for the  
   Army's research, development, test, and evaluation programs, an increase
   of $479,100,000 to the budget request. The budget activities and        
   programs funded under this appropriation are discussed below.           
       Motar Anti-Personnel/Anti-Material (MPAM) .--The Committee is aware 
   that there may be a more effective round of 60mm mortar ammunition than 
   the current M720. Accordingly, the Committee directs the Secretary of   
   the Army to conduct a comparative side-by-side test and evaluation      
   program to determine the lethality and effectiveness of MAPAM mortar    
   ammunition when compared to the M270 ammunition. Further, M270 shall be 
   tested concurrently with MAPAM ammunition to establish a current,       
   complete and accurate evaluation baseline. The Committee recommends     
   $7,200,000 for the express purpose of (i) conducting the side-by-side   
   test program, (ii) conducting an independent evaluation of the test     
   results, and (iii) type classification of the MAPAM ammunition.         
       Medical Technology .--The Committee supports advanced soft tissue   
   modeling research for application in the development of advanced        
   technology surgical simulation applications. The Committee encourages   
   the department to establish a public/private research project in        
   coordination with the National Library of Medicine (NLM) to explore     
   advanced soft tissue modeling capability for use in developing a        
   surgical simulation technology application, and encourages the          
   Department to make available up to $8,500,000 from within available     
   funds for this effort.                                                  
       Medical Advanced Technology .--The Committee has supported promising
   advanced computer aided tomography (CAT) technology development efforts.
   This technology, known as the Volume AngioCAT, could integrate several  
   technologies into a single device capable of rapid whole body internal  
   injury assessment. The Committee directs the Surgeon General of the Army
   to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the Volume AngioCAT development
   program, specifically addressing the program's medical value and        
   application to the unique needs of military medicine, and provide a     
   report to the Committee by March 1, 2000.                               
       Management Headquarters .--The Committee recommends $28,191,000 for 
   Management Headquarters, of which $23,000,000 is only to support the    
   prototyping, demonstration, validation, and maturation of technology    
   through the Akamai project. Within these funds, $4,000,000 is for       
   hyperspectral diagnostic imaging, $3,000,000 is for the remote access to
   medical specialists program, $3,000,000 is for target services for      
   special needs military children, and $1,000,000 is to establish a       
   technology transfer program to other federal government entities that   
   leverage existing DoD investment and reuse successful telehealth        
   prototypes.                                                             
       Electroplating Technologies .--The Committee recognizes the need to 
   develop lead/tin-free solders in the many microcircuits in the          
   Department's equipment. Incorporating lead/tin-free solders into the    
   Department's microcircuits will reduce environmental hazards such as    
   human central nervous system debilitation, lower manufacturing costs    
   because of averted regulatory compliance costs, and improve performance.
   The Committee encourages the Army to allocate funds for the development 
   of lead/tin-free electroplating technologies to meet this purpose.      
       Lightweight 155mm Towed Howitzer .--The Committee is concerned that 
   the Lightweight 155mm Towed Howitzer program has been suffering from    
   contractor and program deficiencies, which has led to a 2-year delay in 
   the program. The program has failed to fully utilize the expertise of   
   Army arsenals in the development and design of the howitzer. Considering
   the long history of the arsenals in advancing howitzer technological    
   development as well as refining production techniques, it is important  
   that they be actively involved in the program, especially during the    
   crucial EMD/prototype phase to ensure that efficient production         
   techniques are designed at the earliest possible stage of the program.  
   In addition, the arsenals constitute an important resource in providing 
   spare parts and special development items for howitzer forces in time of
   war and national emergencies.                                           
      The Committee believes the Army and the Marine Corps should develop a
   plan to include the Rock Island Arsenal in all aspects of howitzer      
   development, design, and production, including recoil mechanisms,       
   carriages and gun tubes for the Lightweight 155mm Towed Howitzer Program
   and all other Army/Marine Corps future towed artillery programs. The    
   Committee expects the Army and the Marine Corps to issue a report to the
   Senate and House Appropriations Subcommittees on Defense no later than  
   sixty days after the enactment of this bill outlining the plan and the  
   steps it has taken to implement it.                                     
                    COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS                    

       Committee Recommendations .--The following table lists program      
   recommendations proposed by the Committee. These adjustments reflect the
   following committee actions: elimination of funds requested for programs
   which are lower priority, duplicative or not supported by firm          
   requirements or out-year development and procurement funds; deletion of 
   excess funds based on program delays or slow execution; addition of     
   funds to reflect congressional priorities and to rectify shortfalls in  
   the budget request for activities; and implementation of recommendations
   reported in the Senate bill authorizing programs and activities of the  
   Department of Defense [DOD] for fiscal year 2000.

          Committee recommendation                8,448,816,000



      The Committee recommends an appropriation of $8,448,816,000 for the  
   Navy's research, development, test, and evaluation programs, an increase
   of $464,800,000 to the budget request.                                  
      The budget activities and programs funded under this appropriation   
   are discussed below.                                                    
       UESA Signal Processing Support .--The Committee recommends          
   $5,000,000 in addition to the budget request to upgrade infrastructure  
   at the test site for the UESA program to improve signal processing      
   capabilities in support of this and other Navy test programs.           
       Vectored Thrust Ducted Propeller (VTDP) .-- The Committee recommends
   an additional $6,000,000 for the flight demonstration of the Vectored   
   Thrust Ducted Propeller (VTDP) Compound Helicopter technology. The      
   Secretary of the Navy's Report to Congress specified objectives for this
   program which include the original Congressionally directed goal of     
   validating the multi-mission speed, range and life cycle cost benefits  
   of this technology, and a potential new requirement for Airborne Mine   
   Counter Measures (AMCM) tow testing. The Committee understands that the 
   addition of the AMCM tow testing and NAVAIR flight clearance            
   requirements have increased the amount of funding required by           
   $12,300,000 and that approximately $6,000,000 of this is required in    
   fiscal year 2000. The Committee directs the Navy to fund the outyear    
   portion of this shortfall in the fiscal year 2001 budget.               
       National Technology Alliance (NTA) .--The Committee is aware that   
   the efforts of the National Technology Alliance (NTA), (consisting of   
   the National Media Laboratory (NML), the National Information Display   
   Laboratory (NIDL) and the National Center for Applied Technology) have  
   saved the Intelligence Community and others in the defense industry     
   hundreds of millions of dollars, far in excess of the monies invested in
   the NTA program. The laboratories have been successful in providing     
   solutions applicable to the intelligence community, DOD, and civil      
   agencies, due largely to the NTA's ability to work across agency and    
   departmental boundaries on common technological problems and technical  
   standards. Therefore, the Committee recommends $10,000,000 to reinforce 
   the cross-agency, cross-program sharing of advanced commercial and      
   consumer information technology solutions for the end users in the      
   Intelligence community and DOD.                                         
       Stainless Steel Advanced Double Hull .--The Committee recommends an 
   additional $5,000,000 for an analytical and experimental development    
   program on the Stainless Steel Advanced Double Hull concept.            
                    COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS                    

       Committee Recommendations .--The following table lists program      
   recommendations proposed by the Committee. These adjustments reflect the
   following committee actions: elimination of funds requested for programs
   which are lower priority, duplicative or not supported by firm          
   requirements or out-year development and procurement funds; deletion of 
   excess funds based on program delays or slow execution; addition of     
   funds to reflect congressional priorities and to rectify shortfalls in  
   the budget request for activities; and implementation of recommendations
   reported in the Senate bill authorizing programs and activities of the

          Committee recommendation                13,489,909,000



      The Committee recommends an appropriation of $13,489,909,000 for the 
   Air Force's research, development, test, and evaluation programs, an    
   increase of $412,080,000 to the budget request.                         
      The budget activities and programs funded under this appropriation   
   are discussed below.                                                    
                    COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS                    

       Human Effectiveness and Applied Research .--Solid state oxygen      
   separation using planar electrolytic ceramic membranes can supply pure  
   oxygen at point of use. In addition to being easier to deploy and more  
   compact, it is less expensive than traditional oxygen generation. The   
   Committee recommends an increase of $6,000,000 to begin development of  
   defense applications of this technology.                                
       Theater Battle Management (TBM) C\4\I .--The Committee is aware of  
   an Air Force requirement to continue the initiative to provide an       
   automated system to support delivery of air support to ground           
   commanders. The system provides the Joint Force Air Component Commander 
   (JFACC) the ability to effectively fulfill requests for Close Air       
   Support (CAS) from both Army and Marine ground commanders. These        
   capabilities are critical to the development of the Air Expeditionary   
   Force (AEF) concept to provide key interfaces between the air and ground
   components. Accordingly, the Committee recommends an increase of        
   $5,000,000 to support implementation of these capabilities in the year  
   2000.                                                                   
                    COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS                    

       Committee Recommendations .--The following table lists program      
   recommendations proposed by the Committee. These adjustments reflect the
   following committee actions: elimination of funds requested for programs
   which are lower priority, duplicative or not supported by firm          
   requirements or out-year development and procurement funds; deletion of 
   excess funds based on program delays or slow execution; addition of     
   funds to reflect congressional priorities and to rectify shortfalls in  
   the budget request for activities; and implementation of recommendations
   reported in the Senate bill authorizing programs and activities of the  
   Department of Defense [DOD] for fiscal year 2000.

      The Committee recommends an appropriation of $9,325,315,000 for      
   defense-wide research, development, test, and evaluation programs, an   
   increase of $716,026,000 to the budget request.                         
      The budget activities and programs funded under this appropriation   
   are discussed below.                                                    
                    COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENTS                    

       Advanced Electronics Technology .--The Committee supports           
   development of change-detection technology to interpret reconnaissance  
   imagery and enhance intelligence community capabilities. The National   
   Information Display Laboratory (NIDL) has been in the forefront of      
   developing this technology and applying it to other military and        
   non-military applications. The Committee urges that an interagency Board
   of Advisors be created to guide the NIDL's research agenda and its      
   efforts to continue improving change-detection technology and to develop
   innovative applications. The Committee has provided an increase of      
   $3,000,000 for research on change detection technology.                 
       Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD) Littoral           
   Battlefield .--Over the past several years, the Committee has supported 
   efforts to demonstrate combined forces in war fighting exercises. Such  
   initiatives have demonstrated promise towards achieving advancements in 
   force integration, technology development, battlespace management,      
   attack assessment and operational space exploitation.                   
      In order to facilitate the use of advanced technology on the         
   battlefield, the Committee endorses an extensive advanced concept       
   technology demonstration program that assesses expanding the littoral   
   battlefield. The Chairman's Joint Vision 2010 provides for such an      
   approach, using a series of exercises and experiments to test these     
   concepts and capabilities.                                              
      The Committee believes that such an assessment should be developed in
   conjunction with an existing joint and operational exercise where a     
   subordinate unified command responds to unforseen theater missions. This
   exercise needs to replicate combined joint training in areas with varied
   topographies including mountain terrain, bodies of water and a full     
   spectrum of climatic conditions. The deployed task force headquarters   
   would provide the command and control of the littoral battlefield.      
      The Committee directs the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs to report to  
   the congressional defense committees on the Department's plan and time  
   line for the joint experimentation program for fiscal year 2000 and 2001
   no later than February 15, 2000.                                        
       Computer-Assisted Technology Transfer .--The Computer-Assisted      
   Technology Transfer (CATT) program provides an innovative approach to   
   Department of Defense procurement problems. The CATT partnership        
   provides a possible solution for the DoD parts challenge by using       
   information technologies to develop the industrial base and modernize   
   the procurement process. These projects utilize distributed test beds to
   perform research and development, and evaluate, prototype, and transfer 
   new and emerging information and manufacturing technologies between the 
   military and civilian sectors. Support to small and medium-sized        
   enterprises (SME) is provided through various types of mentoring        
   structures which leverage existing procurement assistance initiatives.  
      The Committee supports this program and encourages the Department to 
   expand this program to other SME manufacturers creating additional      
   virtual enterprise manufacturing programs, creating capacity to respond 
   rapidly and cost-effectively to market forces.                          
       Biosystems Technology .--The Committee supports the development of  
   environmentally sensitive products and services essential for the       
   efficient operation of all branches of the military and the civilian    
   sector and recognizes the unique factors in tropical and subtropical    
   regions to provide the technology and resource base for these products  
   and services. The Committee recommends $6,000,000 to pursue science and 
   technology biological systems research in conjunction with the United   
   States Department of Agriculture Sustainable Economic Activity program. 
       WMD Related Technology .--The Committee has provided an increase of 
   $7,000,000 for the Department of Defense (DoD) to analyze, model,       
   simulate and predict the effects of nuclear explosions and to develop   
   techniques to ensure systems survive these effects. The Committee       
   encourages the Department of Defense to maintain the capability to      
   perform these tasks.                                                    
       Controlled Flight into Terrain Accidents .--The Committee supports  
   NIMA's efforts with other federal agencies to improve flight safety by  
   using national imagery and photogrammetric techniques to create 3D      
   terrain and obstruction databases for airfields. The Committee directs  
   NIMA to expend up to $10,000,000 for this worthwhile effort,            
   coordinating this activity with the Department of Transportation in     
   order to meet flight standards and certification requirements.          
                  BALLISTIC MISSILE DEFENSE ORGANIZATION                 

       Ballistic Missile Defense Organization [BMDO] .--The Committee has  
   provided $3,455,993,000 for research, development, test, and evaluation 
   [RDT&E] efforts on national and theater ballistic missile defense       
   systems and technologies. This appropriation represents an overall      
   increase of $511,545,000 to the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization  
   [BMDO] RDT&E budget request. The Committee also provides $360,898,000   
   for procurement of ballistic missile defense systems and components, an 
   increase of $4,998,000 to the budget request. Thus, the total           
   appropriation for ballistic missile defense programs in this bill is

       Support Technologies .--The Committee is concerned with the steady  
   decline in the budget for Ballistic Missile Defense Support Technology. 
   The Committee recognizes the importance of continued investment in      
   support technology development for the viability of future missile      
   defense systems. The Committee encourages the Ballistic Missile Defense 
   Organization to increase its support technology budget.                 
       Russian American Observational Satellite .--The Committee           
   understands that the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization, working    
   with the Office of the Secretary of Defense, plans to make $16,000,000  
   of current and/or prior year funds available for the RAMOS program. The 
   Committee directs that these funds shall be available only to continue  
   the RAMOS satellite demonstration program.                              
       Theater High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) .--The Committee has     
   provided $527,161,000, the amount requested for the THAAD demonstration 
   and validation (Dem/Val) phase program. The Committee strongly supports 
   continued development and flight testing of the THAAD interceptor. The  
   Committee supports the THAAD program proceeding into the engineering and
   manufacturing development (EMD) phase following the successful          
   completion of the Dem/Val phase exit criteria.                          
      Of the funds appropriated in Public Law 105 277 (Division B, Title 1,
   Section 102) for support of ballistic missile defense systems, the      
   Committee directs that $83,755,000 of the appropriated funds shall only 
   be available for engineering and manufacturing development (EMD) efforts
   on the THAAD program once the THAAD program has successfully completed  
   all Dem/Val exit criteria.                                              
       Theater High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) .--The Committee has     
   provided $527,161,000, the amount requested for the THAAD demonstration 
   and validation (Dem/Val) phase program. The Committee strongly supports 
   continued development and flight testing of the THAAD interceptor. The  
   Committee supports the THAAD program proceeding into the engineering and
   manufacturing development (EMD) phase following two successful          
   intercepts and the successful completion of the Dem/Val phase exit      
   criteria. Therefore, the Committee directs that any available THAAD     
   Dem/Val funds may be used to proceed into the EMD phase once the        
   interceptor and radar have both met all Dem/Val exit criteria and       
   accomplished two successful intercepts.

       Committee Recommendations .--The following table lists program      
   recommendations proposed by the Committee. These adjustments reflect the
   following committee actions: elimination of funds requested for programs
   which are lower priority, duplicative or not supported by firm          
   requirements or out-year development and procurement funds; deletion of 
   excess funds based on program delays or slow execution; addition of     
   funds to reflect congressional priorities and to rectify shortfalls in  
   the budget request for activities; and implementation of recommendations
   reported in the Senate bill authorizing programs and activities of the  
   Department of Defense [DOD] for fiscal year 2000.

          Committee recommendation                251,957,000



      The Committee recommends an appropriation of $251,957,000 for the    
   ``Developmental test and evaluation, defense'' account, a decrease of   
   $1,500,000 from the budget request.                                     
                     Committee Recommended Adjustment                    

       Central Test and Evaluation Investment Program (CTEIP) .--The       
   Committee provides $120,241,000, a decrease of $1,500,000 to the budget 
   request. The Committee adds $13,500,000 only to fund the Army's Roadway 
   Simulator at the Aberdeen Test Center. The Committee also has deleted   
   $15,000,000 from the Resource Enhancement Project (REP). The Committee  
   understands the difficulty in programing and budgeting short-term       
   emergent T&E requirements within REP. The Committee is concerned that   
   REP funds are being used for recurrent and longer-term projects. The    
   Committee believes that most, if not all, of these projects should be   
   funded by the individual services.

   $10,000,000 to the budget request.                                      
                     COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED ADJUSTMENT                    

       Live Fire Testing .--The Committee provides $10,000,000 only for    
   continuation of the Live Fire Testing and Training Initiative (LFT&I).  
   The Committee is encouraged by efforts within the Department to enhance 
   testing technologies with modeling and simulation.

          Committee recommendation                354,700,000



      This appropriation provides funds for the lease, operation, and      
   supply of prepositioning ships; operation of the Ready Reserve Force;   
   acquisition of large medium speed roll-on/roll-off ships for the        
   Military Sealift Command; and acquisition of ships for the Ready Reserve
   Force.                                                                  
      The budget includes $257,000,000 for Ready Reserve Force and         
   $97,000,000 for acquisition activities in fiscal year 1999.             
       National Defense Features Program .--The budget included no funds   
   for National Defense Features, a program to modify commercial ships to  
   allow them to be used for national defense purposes. The Committee has  
   long supported this program believing there might be opportunities in   
   the commercial marketplace to attain militarily useful vessels for a    
   relatively small investment. The Committee is aware of a new proposal   
   which would establish a program for sealift similar to the Commercial   
   Reserve Air Feet (CRAF). The Committee believes the Defense Department  
   should examine opportunities to create a program like CRAF for sealift  
   and directs the Department to study the issue and report back to the    
   congressional defense committees no later than March 1, 2000.

          Committee recommendation                1,029,000,000



      The Committee recommends an appropriation of $1,029,000,000 for the  
   ``Chemical agents and munitions destruction, Army'' account for fiscal  
   year 2000, a decrease of $140,000,000 from the budget estimate.         
      The Chemical Stockpile Disposal Program provides resources to develop
   and test monitoring and disposal technology; equip, operate, and        
   maintain disposal facilities; provide transportation of chemical agents 
   and munitions onsite for disposal; dispose of all chemical agent        
   destruction waste products; and decontaminate and dismantle all disposal
   equipment at the conclusion of toxic operations.                        
                        COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS                        

               BUDGET ACTIVITY 1--RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT               

       Research and development .--The fiscal year 2000 budget request     
   includes $334,000,000 for the development of alternative technologies to
   incineration for disposal of chemical agents and the design, acquisition
   and testing of prototype equipment for the recovery and treatment of the
   nonstockpile chemical materiel. The Committee recommends $294,000,000, a
   decrease of $40,000,000 below the budget request.                       
                      budget activity 2--procurement                     

       Procurement .--The Department requested $241,500,000 for the        
   procurement of process and support equipment used for the baseline      
   destruction of chemical munitions in the stockpile, chemical stockpile  
   emergency preparedness project [CSEPP] equipment, and the nonstockpile  
   chemical material project [NSCMP] equipment. Also included are costs for
   initial spares, freight, software, maintenance and operations manuals   
   relating to specific equipment, and design changes during construction  
   and installation.                                                       
      The Committee recommends providing $191,500,000 for procurement      
   activities in fiscal year 2000, a reduction of $50,000,000 from the     
   budget request.                                                         
              BUDGET ACTIVITY 3--OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE              

       Operation and maintenance .--The fiscal year 2000 budget request    
   includes $593,500,000 for operations and maintenance funds for          
   management, technical, and operational, support required for            
   demilitarization of the chemical stockpile, emergency response          
   activities, and support to the Nonstockpile Chemical Material Program.  
   The Committee recommends providing $543,500,000 a decrease of           
   $50,000,000 below the budget request.                                   
                     PROGRAM OVERSIGHT AND MANAGEMENT                    

      The Committee is concerned with the lack of oversight afforded the   
   Chemical Demilitarization Program within the executive branch. For      
   example, at the end of fiscal year 1998, the Department of Defense      
   informed the Committee that funds were unavailable for reprogramming to 
   allow for the demonstration of alternative technologies to baseline     
   incineration. More recently, the Office of Management and Budget        
   informed the Committee that due to Congressional reductions to the      
   fiscal year 1999 budget request, OMB was unable to identify available   
   funds in the Chemical Demilitarization program to reprogram to fund     
   additional demonstration projects.                                      
      In a review of the program's funding, the Committee discovered that  
   funds had systematically been obligated without being expended and in   
   some instances funds were unobligated. Rather than facing a shortfall in
   funding, the program had over $200,000,000 of Operation and Maintenance 
   funds unexpended at the end of fiscal year 1998. In light of the        
   unobligated and unexpended balances available to the Department, the    
   program growth in the budget request is not justified. The Committee has
   extended the availability of Operation and Maintenance funds available  
   in fiscal year 2000 to the Department of Defense.                       
      Accordingly, the Committee requires the following report: not later  
   than one hundred and twenty days from enactment of this Act, the        
   Secretary of Defense shall submit a report to the defense committees    
   which describes the actions taken to improve budget execution within the
   Chemical Demilitarization program. After identifying these actions, the 
   report shall describe the unexpended obligations and unobligated        
   balances available within the Chemical Demilitarization program by      
   activity and fiscal year.                                               
       AEmdbo AF AEmdnm AFACWA. AEmdbo AF AEmdnm AF--The Committee         
   continues to support the expeditious and complete execution of the      
   Assembled Chemical Weapons Assessment program.

       Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) .--The 
   Committee recommends $6,300,000 from within Defense Health Program funds
   to meet funding requirements for USUHS.                                 
       Graduate School of Nursing .--The Committee recommends $2,300,000   
   for the Graduate School of Nursing to support advanced nursing programs 
   that contribute to readiness and cost-effective health care delivery to 
   the uniformed services.                                                 
       Tri-Service Nursing Research Program .--The Committee recommends    
   $6,000,000 for the Tri-Service Nursing Research Program. Within these   
   funds, the Committee encourages the Department to establish an advanced 
   practice registered nurse program at DoD and DVA facilities that        
   leverages telehealth and distance learning capabilities. Further, the   
   Committee encourages the Department to begin funding the Tri-Service    
   Nursing Research Program in the Department's annual budget.             
       Center for Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance (CDMHA)  
   .--The Committee recommends $5,000,000 to continue the Center for       
   Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance. Within these funds,    
   $760,000 is to fund the Casualty Care Research Center.                  
       PACMEDNET .--The Committee recommends $12,000,000 to continue the   
   support of prototyping, demonstration, validation and maturation of     
   technology through the PACMEDNET program.                               
       Outcome Driven Health Care and Information Systems for the Military 
   .--The Committee is aware that due to the nature of military service and
   the frequent moves of service members and their families, important     
   medical information is often scattered, incomplete and disjointed. Most 
   health care systems treat only the illness at hand, and so it is        
   difficult if not impossible to assess treatment outcomes over a long    
   period of time. The Committee encourages the Department to make         
   available up to $6,000,000 to support the development of a model outcome
   driven health care capability by integrating an electronic medical      
   record and outcome analysis capabilities.                               
       Post-Doctoral Education .--The Committee encourages the Department  
   to increase and consolidate postdoctoral training for psychologists in  
   military medical centers with an independent department of psychology.  
       Childhood Asthma .--The Committee recognizes that asthma continues  
   to be a potentially devastating disease that leads to high use of       
   medical resources. The Committee encourages the Army's continued        
   research in practice guidelines, patient education and self care models 
   that would facilitate better quality of life and cost effective         
   outcomes.                                                               
       Defense Women's Health Research Program .--The Committee recognizes 
   the importance of this issue and encourages the Department to support   
   research in this area.                                                  
       DVA and Tripler Telehealth Programs .--With the co-location of the  
   Veteran's Administration Hospital at Tripler Army Medical Center, the   
   Committee encourages the Department and the Veteran's Health            
   Administration to consolidate and coordinate telehealth programs to     
   ensure that resources are efficiently applied.                          
       Dual Use Technology Program .--The Committee encourages the Army to 
   initiate a dual use technology program in the emerging fields of voice  
   recognition or wireless technology in support of medical applications.  
       Government Computerized Patient Record (G CPR) .--The Committee     
   recognizes efforts made on the G CPR and encourages the Department to   
   select technology savvy environments and existing collaborative         
   partnerships for pilot implementation.                                  
       Graduate School of Nursing .--The Committee encourages USUHS to     
   provide support to the virtual reality human anatomy program, and to    
   continue its development as an educational tool with a corresponding    
   curriculum to enhance educational programs in the military health       
   system.                                                                 
       Graduate Medical Education (GME) .--The Committee is concerned with 
   the equitable distribution of funds for graduate medical education for  
   all health professions, including nursing. The Committee directs the    
   Department to provide a report by March 1, 2000 on the amount and       
   distribution of funds spent on graduate medical education.              
       DOD/DVA Distance Learning Pilot Project .--The Committee encourages 
   the Department to continue the DoD/DVA distance learning pilot project  
   to transition clinical nurse specialists to the role of nurse           
   practitioners. The Committee directs the Department to provide a report 
   by March 1, 2000, on the progress of this project.                      
       Behavioral Research .--The Committee is concerned with the          
   continuing erosion of the Department's support for research on          
   individual and group performance, leadership, communication,            
   human-machine interfaces, and decision-making. The Committee encourages 
   an evaluation on the application of behavioral, cognitive and social    
   science research in the military, and the benefits of this research to  
   military performance. The Committee directs the Department to provide a 
   report by March 1, 2000, detailing this evaluation and including a plan 
   with recommendations to strengthen this research across the military    
   services.                                                               
       Containing the Cost of Health Care .--The Committee is concerned    
   with the continued growth in military health care expenditures, and is  
   aware of computer-based simulation modeling capability that could       
   contain health care costs while maintaining health care quality and     
   access. This modeling would design and evaluate effective health system 
   reengineering alternatives and develop effective alternative health     
   management practices and procedures as a means of health cost           
   containment. The Committee directs the Department to conduct a          
   comprehensive evaluation of such modeling capability and health care    
   reengineering, specifically addressing the potential for health care    
   cost savings, and provide a report to the Committee by March 1, 2000.   
       Smoking Cessation .--Last year, the Congress granted the Department 
   the authority to provide effective tobacco cessation products and       
   counseling for members of the Armed Forces and their dependents,        
   including retired members, in a manner that does not impose the majority
   of the cost on the individual. The Department has established a limited 
   number of pilot programs to evaluate the effectiveness of this concept. 
   The Committee directs the Department to substantially increase the      
   number of pilot programs so that a greater number of individuals could  
   benefit from this program, with the goal of full access by January,     
   2001. The Committee directs the Department to submit a report by March  
   1, 2000 on the status of this pilot program, and a plan to implement a  
   similar program throughout the Department.                              
       Anthrax Vaccine Adverse Reaction Reporting .--The Committee is      
   concerned about reports that some service members who receive the       
   anthrax vaccine through the Department's Anthrax Vaccination            
   Immunization Program (AVIP) have not had access to methods of reporting,
   or may have been discouraged from reporting, adverse reactions          
   associated with the vaccination. The Centers for Disease Control's      
   Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) should be available to  
   all service members so that there will be an accurate and complete      
   report of adverse reactions to the anthrax vaccine. The Committee       
   directs the Department to take all necessary steps to ensure that       
   service members are fully informed of the VAERS system, and to continue 
   efforts to design longitudinal follow-up studies of the anthrax vaccine.
   The Committee directs the Department to report by March 1, 2000 on the  
   actions taken to implement this direction.

   $300,000,000 for medical RDT&E efforts to be conducted by the           
   Department. Within these funds, $175,000,000 is for the Breast Cancer   
   Research Program (BCRP), and $75,000,000 is for the Prostate Cancer     
   Research Program (PCRP).                                                
      The remaining funds of $50,000,000 are to be made available for peer 
   reviewed medical research grants and activities. The Committee directs  
   that the Secretary of Defense, in conjunction with the service Surgeons 
   General, establish a process to select medical research projects of     
   clear scientific merit and direct relevance to military health.         
      Such projects could include: acute lung injury research; advanced    
   soft tissue modeling; alcohol abuse prevention research; alcoholism     
   research; brain injury; childhood asthma; cognitive neuroscience;       
   diabetes; digital mammography imaging; disease management demonstration;
   enzymatic wound disinfectants; neurofibromatosis; osteoporosis and bone 
   disease; ovarian cancer; polynitroxylated hemoglobin; smoking cessation;
   stem cell research; and tissue regeneration for combat casualty care.

       National Guard activities .--The Committee recognizes the valuable  
   contribution the National Guard makes to the counterdrug effort and     
   provides an additional $20,000,000. This augment reflects a continuing  
   requirement to adequately fund the National Guard's contribution and the
   Committee directs the Department to include this level of funding at a  
   minimum, commencing with the fiscal year 2001 budget submission.        
      Of these additional funds, the Committee urges the New Jersey        
   National Guard to participate in Crack House Demolition and related     
   missions in the New Jersey High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA).
       Drug Free Century Act. --In order to support the initiative outlined
   in S. 5, the Drug Free Century Act, to significantly reduce the flow of 
   cocaine and heroin into the United States, the Committee has provided an
   additional $50,000,000 for counterdrug intelligence and infrastructure  
   support. Additionally, $1,000,000 has been included to fund a study     
   assessing the utility of an additional Relocatable Over The Horizon     
   Radar (ROTHR) site to enhance transit and source zone monitoring. The   
   Department is to report to the defense committees, by February 15, 2000 
   addressing site surveys of potential locations, resource requirements   
   and a detailed time line if this is deemed to be an effective additional
   deterrence tool.                                                        
       Marijuana eradication .--The Committee has provided an additional   
   $6,000,000 for the conduct of marijuana eradication. These funds are to 
   be used to address marijuana eradication shortfalls in the two States   
   having the highest rate of outdoor cannabis cultivation as set forth in 
   a 1996 report prepared by the DEA's Strategic Detection Unit of the     
   domestic intelligence section.                                          
       Gulf States counterdrug initiative .--The Committee has provided an 
   additional $10,000,000 to support the Gulf States counterdrug initiative
   and the Regional Counterdrug Training Academy [RCTA]. These funds will  
   provide for sustainment and support costs, improvements to the existing 
   processing and analysis centers in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and     
   Mississippi, modernization and hardware/software upgrades, and a systems
   application program.                                                    
       Civil Air Patrol .--Funds made available to the Civil Air Patrol    
   [CAP] in the fiscal year 2000 appropriation for Defense Department drug 
   interdiction activities may be used for CAP's demand reduction program  
   involving youth programs as well as operational and training drug       
   reconnaissance missions for Federal, State, and local government        
   agencies, and for any directly associated administrative costs. The Air 
   Force should waive reimbursement from Federal, State, and local         
   government agencies for use of these funds.                             
       Illegal Narcotic Crop Cultivation. --The Committee is aware that the
   Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, IL has well-established     
   expertise in both evaluating different land-use practices and educating 
   local governments and non-governmental organizations about sustainable  
   alternatives to growing narcotic crops. Subsequently, the Committee     
   encourages the Department to support a Field Museum-sponsored research  
   and inventory expedition in South America to evaluate the viability of  
   alternative crops to illegal narcotic crop cultivation.

       Sec. 8095. Foreign Currency Savings.-- Retains and modifies         
   provisions carried in previous year.                                    
       Sec. 8096. Fuel Repricing Savings.-- Retains and modifies provisions
   carried in previous year.                                               
       Sec. 8097. Family Housing at Fort Buchanan, PR.-- Retains and       
   modifies provisions carried in previous year.                           
       Sec. 8098. Lost and canceled Treasury checks.-- The Committee       
   includes a new provision which allows for the replacement of lost       
   checks.                                                                 
       Sec. 8099. Leasing Authority for National Guard Bureau.-- Inserts a 
   new provision which allows the Chief of the National Guard Bureau to    
   waive payment in the lease of personal property to Federal, State or    
   local government, and youth or charitable organization.                 
       Sec. 8100. Pacific Disaster Center. --The Committee recommends a new
   provision which restates the mission of the Pacific Disaster Center and 
   provides authority to the Secretary of Defense to establish             
   public-private partnerships among the Center, government, and           
   non-government activities to allow PDC to better utilize its products,  
   information, facilities and knowledge of organizational development of a
   disaster information center and other resources. PDC has created        
   products and services which are of significant value to outside         
   entities, but, without legislation, the Center cannot sell them. The    
   Committee is encouraged by the activities of PDC and wants to limit the 
   amount of federal funding that is required to develop, operate and      
   maintain the center in the future by affording it the opportunity to    
   generate external revenue. The Committee expects the PDC to pursue a    
   long-term structure that provides for its self-sustainment through a    
   government-owned contractor operated, government corporation,           
   not-for-profit, public-private partnership, or commercial entity.       
      To carry out this partnership, the Center would be allowed to seek   
   and receive funding from different entities to include foreign          
   governments. PDC may enter into agreements with institutions of higher  
   education; Federal, State or local government agencies; not-for-profit  
   entities or other cooperative funded activities; and private or         
   corporate entities to provide for joint operation and development of    
   PDC. The Center may also engage in activities and partnerships for      
   profit, as appropriate and within existing law, in pursuing economic    
   opportunities domestically and internationally providing emergency      
   management products and services including operational analysis, systems
   engineering, development engineering, training, vulnerability assessment
   and consequence modeling, disaster analysis, policy support, management 
   consultation, infrastructure planning and protection, military and civil
   emergency management, humanitarian assistance, and disaster relieve     
   information support planning and execution and information brokering.   
       Sec. 8101. Supplemental Funding for Military Personnel.-- Inserts a 
   new provision which reduces Title I appropriations to reflect amounts   
   appropriated in H.R. 1141, as enacted.                                  
       Sec. 8102. Environmental Contracting.-- Inserts a new provision     
   which directs limits the funding that can be obligated to indefinite    
   delivery/indefinite quantity environmental contracts.                   
       Sec. 8103. Elmendorf Air Force Base.-- Inserts a new provision which
   allows for the realignment of railroad track.                           
       Sec. 8104. Combating Terrorism.-- Inserts a new provision           
   establishing a minimum funding level for counter-terrorism activities.  
       Sec. 8105. Alcoholic beverages.-- Inserts a provision included in   
   previous years which directs the local procurement of alcoholic         
   beverages sold on military installations in States which are not        
   contiguous.                                                             
       Sec. 8106. Aircraft Leasing.-- Inserts a provision to provide the   
   Air Force the necessary authority to negotiate leases for support       
   aircraft.                                                               
       Sec. 8107. Spectrum Auctions .--The Committee recommends a provision
   that permits the acceleration of certain spectrum auctions, as proposed 
   by the President.                                                       
       Sec. 8108. Operation and maintenance and procurement activities     
   .--The Committee includes a provision that permits the Department to    
   carry over funds provided in Public Law 105 277 and Public Law 106 31   
   for operation and maintenance and procurement activities during fiscal  
   year 2000.                                                              

            COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 7, RULE XVI, OF THE STANDING RULES OF THE   
                                     SENATE                                       
      Paragraph 7 of rule XVI requires that Committee reports on general   
   appropriations bills identify each Committee amendment to the House bill
   ``which proposes an item of appropriation which is not made to carry out
   the provisions of an existing law, a treaty stipulation, or an act or   
   resolution previously passed by the Senate during that session.''       
      Due to the early Committee action on the fiscal year 1999 Defense    
   appropriations bill, an original Senate bill was reported by the        
   Appropriations Committee to the Senate.                                 
      At the point when the Committee reports this measure, the Congress   
   has not completed action on S. 2057, the Fiscal Year 1999 Defense       
   Authorization Act. As a consequence, the Committee has acted in good    
   faith in its attempt to comply fully with requirements stipulated under 
   paragraph 7, rule XVI.                                                  
      The Committee anticipates that Congress will authorize the amounts   
   appropriated in this act.                                               
           COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 7(C), RULE XXVI OF THE STANDING RULES OF THE 
                                     SENATE                                       
      Pursuant to paragraph 7(c) of rule XXVI, the Committee ordered       
   reported en bloc, an original fiscal year 2000 Department of Defense    
   Appropriations bill (S. 1122), the fiscal year 2000 section 302(b)      
   allocation, and H.R. 1664, by recorded vote of 24 3, a quorum being     
   present.

      Paragraph 12 of rule XXVI requires that Committee reports on a bill  
   or joint resolution repealing or amending any statute or part of any    
   statute include ``(a) the text of the statute or part thereof which is  
   proposed to be repealed; and (b) a comparative print of that part of the

   resolution if enacted in the form recommended by the committee.''       
   The Committee bill as recommended contains no such provisions.
