                 JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE       

       The managers on the part of the House and the Senate at the         
   conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on the amendment  
   of the Senate to the bill (H.R. 4205) to authorize appropriations for   
   fiscal year 2001 for military activities of the Department of Defense,  
   for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department 
   of Energy, to prescribe personnel strengths for such fiscal year for the
   Armed Forces, and for other purposes, submit the following joint        
   statement to the House and the Senate in explanation of the effect of   
   the action agreed upon by the managers and recommended in the           
   accompanying conference report:                                         
       The Senate amendment struck out all of the House bill after the     
   enacting clause and inserted a substitute text.                         
       The House recedes from its disagreement to the amendment of the     
   Senate with an amendment which is a substitute for the House bill and   
   the Senate amendment. The differences between the House bill, the Senate
   amendment, and the substitute agreed to in conference are noted below,  
   except for clerical corrections, conforming changes made necessary by   
   agreements reached by the conferees, and minor drafting and clarifying  
   changes.                                                                
       The conference agreement would enact the provisions of H.R. 5408 as 
   introduced on October 6, 2000. The text of that bill follows:           

          SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE; FINDINGS.                                       

     (a) Short Title.--This Act may be cited as the ``Floyd D. Spence     
  National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2001''.              
    (b)  Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:                

       (1) Representative Floyd D. Spence of South Carolina was elected to 
   the House of Representatives in 1970, for service in the 92d Congress,  
   after serving in the South Carolina legislature for 10 years, and he has
   been reelected to each subsequent Congress.                             
       (2) Representative Spence came to Congress as a distinguished       
   veteran of service in the Armed Forces of the United States.            
       (3) Upon graduation from college in 1952, Representative Spence was 
   commissioned as an ensign in the United States Naval Reserve. After     
   entering active duty, he served with distinction aboard the USS CARTER  
   HALL and the USS LSM 397 during the Korean War and later served as      
   commanding officer of a Naval Reserve Surface Division and as group     
   commander of all Naval Reserve units in Columbia, South Carolina.       
   Representative Spence retired from the Naval Reserve in 1988 in the     
   grade of captain, after 41 years of dedicated service.                  
       (4) Upon election to the House of Representatives, Representative   
   Spence became a member of the Committee on Armed Services of that body. 
   During 30 years of service on that committee (4 years of which were     
   served while the committee was known as the Committee on National       
   Security), Representative Spence's contributions to the national defense
   and security of the United States have been profound and long lasting.  
       (5) Representative Spence served as chairman of that committee while
   known as the Committee on National Security during the 104th and 105th  
   Congresses and serves as chairman of that committee for the 106th       
   Congress. In addition, Representative Spence served as the ranking      
   minority member of the Committee on Armed Services during the 103d      
   Congress.                                                               
       (6) Dozens of awards from active duty and reserve military, veterans
   service, military retiree, and industry organizations and associations  
   have recognized the distinguished character of Representative Spence's  
   service to the Nation.                                                  
       (7) Representative Spence has been a leading figure in the debate   
   over many of the most critical military readiness, health care,         
   recruiting, and retention issues currently confronting the Nation's     
   military. His concern for the men and women in uniform has been         
   unwavering, and his accomplishments in promoting and gaining support for
   those issues that preserve the combat effectiveness, morale, and quality
   of life of the Nation's military personnel have been unparalleled.      
       (8) During his tenure as chairman of the Committee on National      
   Security and the Committee on Armed Services of the House of            
   Representatives, Representative Spence has--                            
       (A) led efforts to identify and reverse the effect that declining   
   resources and rising commitments have had on military quality of life   
   for service members and their families, on combat readiness, and on     
   equipment modernization, with a direct result of those diligent efforts 
   and of his willingness to be an outspoken proponent for America's       
   military being that Congress has added nearly $50,000,000,000 to the    
   President's defense budgets over the past 5 years;                      
       (B) been a leading proponent of the need to expeditiously develop   
   and field a national missile defense to protect American citizens and   
   forward deployed military forces from growing ballistic missile threats;
       (C) advocated reversing the growing disparity between actual        
   military capability and the requirements associated with the National   
   Military Strategy; and                                                  

       (D) led efforts in Congress to reform Department of Defense         
   acquisition and management headquarters and infrastructure and business 
   practices.                                                              
       (9) This Act is the 30th annual authorization bill for the          
   Department of Defense for which Representative Spence has taken a major 
   responsibility as a member of the Committee on Armed Services of the    
   House of Representatives (including 4 years while that committee was    
   known as the Committee on National Security).                           
       (10) In light of the findings in the preceding paragraphs, it is    
   altogether fitting and proper that this Act be named in honor of        
   Representative Floyd D. Spence of South Carolina, as provided in        
   subsection (a).

          SEC. 215. DD 21 CLASS DESTROYER PROGRAM.                                

     (a) Authority.--The Secretary of the Navy is authorized to pursue a  
  technology insertion approach for the construction of the DD 21         
  destroyer that is based on the assumption of the following schedule:    
       (1) Award of a contract for advance procurement for construction of 
   components for the DD 21 destroyer during fiscal year 2004.             
     (2) Delivery of the completed ship during fiscal year 2009.           

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

       (1) there are compelling reasons for starting the program for       
   constructing the DD 21 destroyer during fiscal year 2004 with available 
   procurement funds and continuing with sequential construction of DD 21  
   class destroyers during the ensuing fiscal years until 32 DD 21 class   
   destroyers have been constructed; and                                   
       (2) the Secretary of the Navy, in providing for the acquisition of  
   DD 21 class destroyers, should consider that--                          
       (A) the Marine Corps needs the surface fire-support capabilities of 
   the DD 21 class destroyers as soon as possible in order to mitigate the 
   inadequacies of the surface fire-support capabilities that are currently
   available;                                                              
       (B) the Navy and Marine Corps need to resolve whether there is a    
   requirement for surface fire-support missile weapon systems to be easily
   sustainable by means of replenishment while under way;                  
       (C) the technology insertion approach has been successful for other 
   ship construction programs and is being pursued for the CVNX aircraft   
   carrier program and the Virginia class submarine program;               
       (D) the establishment of a stable configuration for the first 10 DD 
   21 class destroyers should enable the construction of those ships with  
   the greatest capabilities at the lowest cost; and                       
       (E) action to acquire DD 21 class destroyers should be taken as soon
   as possible in order to realize fully the cost savings that can be      
   derived from the construction and operation of DD 21 class destroyers,  
   including--                                                             
       (i) savings in construction costs that would result from achievement
   of the Navy's target per-ship cost of $750,000,000 by the fifth ship    
   constructed in each construction yard;                                  
       (ii) savings that would result from the estimated reduction of the  
   crews of destroyers by 200 or more personnel for each ship; and         
       (iii) savings that would result from a reduction in the operating   
   costs for destroyers by an estimated 70 percent.                        
     (c) Navy Plan for Use of Technology Insertion Approach for           
  Construction of the DD 21 Ship.--The Secretary of the Navy shall submit 
  to the Committees on Armed Services of the Senate and the House of      
  Representatives, not later than April 18, 2001, a plan for pursuing a   
  technology insertion approach for the construction of the DD 21         
  destroyer as authorized under subsection (a). The plan shall include    
  estimates of the resources necessary to carry out the plan.             
     (d) Report on Acquisition and Maintenance Plan for DD 21 Class       
  Ships.--The Secretary of Defense shall submit to the Committees on Armed
  Services of the Senate and the House of Representatives, not later than

  maintenance of DD 21 class destroyers. The report shall include a       
  discussion of each of the following matters:                            
       (1) The technical feasibility of contracting for, and commencing    
   construction of, the first destroyer in that class during fiscal year   
   2004 and achieving delivery of the completed ship during fiscal year    
   2009.                                                                   
       (2) An analysis of alternative contracting strategies for the       
   construction of the first 10 destroyers in that class, including one or 
   more multiyear procurement strategies and one or more strategies for    
   block buy in economic order quantity.                                   
       (3) A comparison of the effects on the destroyer industrial base and
   on costs to other Navy shipbuilding programs of the following two

       (A) Commencing construction of the first destroyer in that class    
   during fiscal year 2004, with delivery of the completed ship during     
   fiscal year 2009, and delaying commencement of construction of the next 
   destroyer in that class until fiscal year 2006.                         
       (B) Commencing construction of the first destroyer in that class    
   during fiscal year 2005 (rather than fiscal year 2004), with advance    
   procurement during fiscal year 2004 and delivery of the completed ship  
   during fiscal year 2010, and delaying commencement of construction of   
   the next destroyer in that class until fiscal year 2007 (rather than    
   fiscal year 2006).                                                      
       (4) The effects on the fleet maintenance strategies of Navy fleet   
   commanders, on commercial maintenance facilities in fleet concentration 
   areas, and on the administration of funds in compliance with section    
   2466 of title 10, United States Code, of awarding to a contractor for   
   the construction of a destroyer in that class all maintenance workloads 
   for destroyers in that class that are below depot-level maintenance and 
   above ship-level maintenance.

          NAVAL RESEARCH EFFORTS DURING THE PERIOD FROM BEFORE WORLD WAR II       
          THROUGH THE END OF THE COLD WAR.                                        
    (a)  Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:                

       (1) The contributions of the Nation's scientific community and of   
   science research to the victory of the United States and its allies in  
   World War II resulted in the understanding that science and technology  
   are of critical importance to the future security of the Nation.        
       (2) Academic institutions and oceanographers provided vital support 
   to the Navy and the Marine Corps during World War II.                   
       (3) Congress created the Office of Naval Research in the Department 
   of the Navy in 1946 to ensure the availability of resources for research
   in oceanography and other fields related to the missions of the Navy and
   Marine Corps.                                                           
       (4) The Office of Naval Research of the Department of the Navy, in  
   addition to its support of naval research within the Federal Government,
   has also supported the conduct of oceanographic and scientific research 
   through partnerships with educational and scientific institutions       
   throughout the Nation.                                                  
       (5) These partnerships have long been recognized as among the most  
   innovative and productive research partnerships ever established by the 
   Federal Government and have resulted in a vast improvement in           
   understanding of basic ocean processes and the development of new       
   technologies critical to the security and defense of the Nation.        
    (b)  Congressional Recognition and Appreciation.--Congress--          

       (1) applauds the commitment and dedication of the officers,         
   scientists, researchers, students, and administrators who were          
   instrumental to the program of partnerships for oceanographic and       
   scientific research between the Federal Government and academic         
   institutions, including those individuals who helped forge that program 
   before World War II, implement it during World War II, and improve it   
   throughout the Cold War;                                                
       (2) recognizes that the Nation, in ultimately prevailing in the Cold
   War, relied to a significant extent on research supported by, and       
   technologies developed through, those partnerships and, in particular,  
   on the superior understanding of the ocean environment generated through
   that research;                                                          
       (3) supports efforts by the Secretary of the Navy and the Chief of  
   Naval Research to honor those individuals, who contributed so greatly   
   and unselfishly to the naval mission and the national defense, through  
   those partnerships during the period beginning before World War II and

          SEC. 376. REVIEW OF AH 64 AIRCRAFT PROGRAM.                             

     (a) Requirement for Review.--The Comptroller General shall conduct a 
  review of the Army's AH 64 aircraft program to determine--              
       (1) whether obsolete spare parts, rather than spare parts for the   
   latest aircraft configuration, are being procured;                      
     (2) whether there is insufficient sustaining system technical support;

     (3) whether technical data packages and manuals are obsolete;         

       (4) whether there are unfunded requirements for airframe and        
   component upgrades; and                                                 
       (5) if one or more of the conditions described in the preceding     
   paragraphs exist, whether the readiness of the aircraft is impaired by  
   the conditions.                                                         
     (b) Report.--Not later than March 1, 2001, the Comptroller General   
  shall submit to the congressional defense committees a report on the    
  results of the review under subsection (a).                             

                    SEC. 377. REPORT ON AIR FORCE SPARE AND REPAIR PARTS PROGRAM  
          FOR C 5 AIRCRAFT.                                                       
    (a)  Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:                

       (1) There exists a significant shortfall in the Nation's current    
   strategic airlift requirement, even though strategic airlift remains    
   critical to the national security strategy of the United States.        
       (2) This shortfall results from the slow phase-out of C 141 aircraft
   and their replacement with C 17 aircraft and from lower than optimal    
   reliability rates for the C 5 aircraft.                                 
       (3) One of the primary causes of these reliability rates for C 5    
   aircraft, and especially for operational unit aircraft, is the shortage 
   of spare repair parts. Over the past 5 years, this shortage has been    
   particularly evident in the C 5 fleet.                                  
       (4) Not Mission Capable for Supply rates for C 5 aircraft have      
   increased significantly in the period between 1997 and 1999. At Dover   
   Air Force Base, Delaware, for example, an average of 7 to 9 C 5 aircraft
   were not available during that period because of a lack of parts.       
       (5) Average rates of cannibalization of C 5 aircraft per 100 sorties
   of such aircraft have also increased during that period and are well    
   above the Air Mobility Command standard. In any given month, this means 
   devoting additional manhours to cannibalization of C 5 aircraft. At     
   Dover Air Force Base, for example, an average of 800 to 1,000 additional
   manhours were required for cannibalization of C 5 aircraft during that  
   period. Cannibalization is often required for aircraft that transit     
   through a base such as Dover Air Force Base, as well as those that are  
   based there.                                                            
       (6) High cannibalization rates indicate a significant problem in    
   delivering spare parts in a timely manner and systemic problems within  
   the repair and maintenance process, and also demoralize overworked      
   maintenance crews.                                                      
       (7) The C 5 aircraft remains an absolutely critical asset in air    
   mobility and airlifting heavy equipment and personnel to both military  
   contingencies and humanitarian relief efforts around the world.         
       (8) Despite increased funding for spare and repair parts and other  
   efforts by the Air Force to mitigate the parts shortage problem,        
   Congress continues to receive reports of significant cannibalization to 
   airworthy C 5 aircraft and parts backlogs.                              
     (b) Report Required.--Not later than January 1, 2001, and September  
  30, 2001, the Secretary of the Air Force shall submit to Congress a     
  report on the overall status of the spare and repair parts program of   
  the Air Force for the C 5 aircraft.                                     
    (c)  Elements of Report.--Each report shall include the following:    

       (1) A statement of the funds currently allocated to the acquisition 
   of spare and repair parts for the C 5 aircraft and the adequacy of such 
   funds to meet current and future repair and maintenance requirements for
   that aircraft.                                                          
       (2) A description of current efforts to address shortfalls in the   
   availability of spare and repair parts for the C 5 aircraft, including  
   an assessment of potential short-term and long-term effects of such     
   efforts.                                                                
       (3) An assessment of the effects of such parts shortfalls on        
   readiness and reliability ratings for the C 5 aircraft.                 
       (4) A description of rates at which spare and repair parts for one C
   5 aircraft are taken from another C 5 aircraft (known as parts          
   cannibalization) and the manhours devoted to part cannibalization of    
   such aircraft.                                                          
       (5) An assessment of the effects of parts shortfalls and parts      
   cannibalization with respect to C 5 aircraft on readiness and retention.

     (d) Report.--(1) Not later than March 31, 2001, the Secretary shall  
  submit to the Committee on Armed Services of the Senate and the         
  Committee on Armed Services of the House of Representatives a report on 
  management of the grade structure for reserve-component officers who are
  subject to section 12011 of title 10, United States Code, and on the    
  grade structure of enlisted members who are subject to section 12012 of 
  that title. The Secretary of Defense shall include in the report        
  recommendations for a permanent solution for managing the grade         
  structures for those officers and enlisted members without requirement  
  for frequent statutory adjustments to the limitations in those sections.
     (2) In developing recommendations for the report under paragraph (1),
  the Secretary shall consider the following areas:                       
       (A) The grade structure authorized for field-grade officers in the  
   active-duty forces and the reasons why the grade structure for          
   field-grade reserve officers on active duty in support of the reserves  
   is different.                                                           
       (B) The grade structure authorized for senior enlisted members in   
   the active-duty forces and the reasons why the grade structure for      
   senior enlisted reserve members on active duty in support of the        
   reserves is different.                                                  
       (C) The need for independent grade limits for each reserve component
   under sections 12011 and 12012 of title 10, United States Code.         
       (D) The advantages and disadvantage of replacing management by the  
   current grade tables in those sections with management through a system 
   based on the grade authorized for the position occupied by the member.  
       (E) The current mix within each reserve component, for each         
   controlled grade, of (i) traditional reservists, (ii) military          
   technicians, (iii) regular component members, and (iv) reserve members  
   on active duty in support of the reserves, and how that mix, for each

                    SEC. 545. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON THE COURT-MARTIAL CONVICTION OF
          CAPTAIN CHARLES BUTLER McVAY, COMMANDER OF THE U.S.S. INDIANAPOLIS, AND 
          ON THE COURAGEOUS SERVICE OF THE CREW OF THAT VESSEL.                   
    (a)  Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:                

       (1) Shortly after midnight on the morning of July 30, 1945, during  
   the closing days of World War II, the United States Navy heavy cruiser  
   U.S.S. Indianapolis (CA 35) was torpedoed and sunk by the Japanese      
   submarine I 58 in what became the worst sea disaster in the history of  
   the United States Navy.                                                 
       (2) Although approximately 900 of the ship's crew of 1,196 survived 
   the actual sinking, only 316 of those courageous sailors survived when  
   rescued after four and a half days adrift in the open sea, the remainder
   having perishing from battle wounds, drowning, predatory shark attacks, 
   exposure to the elements, and lack of food and potable water.           
       (3) Rescue for the remaining 316 sailors came only when they were   
   spotted by chance by Navy Lieutenant Wilbur C. Gwinn while flying a     
   routine naval air patrol mission.                                       
       (4) After the end of World War II, the commanding officer of the    
   U.S.S. Indianapolis, Captain Charles Butler McVay, III, who was rescued 
   with the other survivors, was court-martialed for ``suffering a vessel  
   to be hazarded through negligence'' by failing to zigzag (a naval tactic
   employed to help evade submarine attacks) and was convicted even        
   though--                                                                
       (A) the choice to zigzag was left to Captain McVay's discretion in  
   his orders; and                                                         
       (B) Motchisura Hashimoto, the commander of the Japanese submarine   
   that sank the U.S.S. Indianapolis, and Glynn R. Donaho, a United States 
   Navy submarine commander highly decorated for his service during World  
   War II, both testified at Captain McVay's court-martial trial that the  
   Japanese submarine could have sunk the U.S.S. Indianapolis whether or   
   not it had been zigzagging, an assertion that has since been reaffirmed 
   in a letter to the Chairman of the Committee on Armed Services of the   
   Senate dated November 24, 1999.                                         
       (5) Although not argued by Captain McVay's defense counsel in the   
   court-martial trial, poor visibility on the night of the sinking (as    
   attested in surviving crew members' handwritten accounts recently       
   discovered at the National Archives) justified Captain McVay's choice   
   not to zigzag as that choice was consistent with the applicable Navy    
   directives in force in 1945, which stated that, ``During thick weather  
   and at night, except on very clear nights or during bright moonlight,   
   vessels normally cease zig-zagging.''.                                  

       (6) Before the U.S.S. Indianapolis sailed from Guam on what became  
   her final voyage, Naval officials failed to provide Captain McVay with  
   available support that was critical to the safety of the U.S.S.         
   Indianapolis and her crew by--                                          
       (A) disapproving a request made by Captain McVay for a destroyer    
   escort for the U.S.S. Indianapolis across the Philippine Sea as being   
   ``not necessary'';                                                      
       (B) not informing Captain McVay that naval intelligence sources,    
   through signal intelligence (the Japanese code having been broken       
   earlier in World War II), had become aware that the Japanese submarine I
   58 was operating in the area of the U.S.S. Indianapolis' course (as     
   disclosed in evidence presented in a hearing of the Committee on Armed  
   Services of the Senate conducted September 14, 1999); and               
       (C) not informing Captain McVay of the sinking of the destroyer     
   escort U.S.S. Underhill by a Japanese submarine within range of the     
   course of the U.S.S. Indianapolis four days before the U.S.S.           
   Indianapolis departed Guam for the Philippine Islands.                  
       (7) Captain McVay's court-martial initially was opposed by his      
   immediate command superiors, Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz (CINCPAC) and 
   Vice Admiral Raymond Spruance of the 5th fleet, for whom the U.S.S.     
   Indianapolis had served as flagship, but, despite their recommendations,
   Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal ordered the court-martial, largely
   on the basis of the recommendation of Fleet Admiral Ernest King, Chief  
   of Naval Operations.                                                    
       (8) There is no explanation on the public record for the overruling 
   by Secretary Forrestal of the recommendations made by Admirals Nimitz   
   and Spruance.                                                           
       (9) Captain McVay was the only commander of a United States Navy    
   vessel lost in combat to enemy action during World War II who was       
   subjected to a court-martial trial for such a loss, even though several 
   hundred United States Navy ships were lost in combat to enemy action    
   during World War II.                                                    
       (10) The survivors of the U.S.S. Indianapolis overwhelmingly        
   conclude that Captain McVay was not at fault in the loss of the         
   Indianapolis and have dedicated their lives to vindicating their Captain
   McVay.                                                                  
       (11) Although promoted to the grade of rear admiral in accordance   
   with then-applicable law upon retirement from the Navy in 1949, Captain 
   McVay never recovered from the stigma of his post-war court-martial and 
   in 1968, tragically, took his own life.                                 
     (12) Charles Butler McVay, III--                                      

     (A) was a graduate of the United States Naval Academy;                

       (B) was an exemplary career naval officer with an outstanding record
   (including participation in the amphibious invasions of North Africa,   
   the assault on Iwo Jima, and the assault on Okinawa where the U.S.S.    
   Indianapolis under his command survived a fierce kamikaze attack);      
       (C) was a recipient of the Silver Star earned for courage under fire
   during the Solomon Islands campaign; and                                
       (D) with the crew of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, had so thoroughly     
   demonstrated proficiency in naval warfare that the Navy entrusted him   
   and the crew of the U.S.S. Indianapolis with transporting to the Pacific
   theater components necessary for assembling the atomic bombs that were  
   exploded over Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end the war with Japan (delivery
   of such components to the island of Tinian having been accomplished on  
   July 25, 1945).                                                         
     (b) Sense of Congress Concerning Charles Butler McVay, III.--With    
  respect to the sinking of the U.S.S. Indianapolis (CA 35) on July 30,   
  1945, and the subsequent court-martial conviction of the ship's         
  commanding officer, Captain Charles Butler McVay, III, arising from that
  sinking, it is the sense of Congress, based on the review of evidence by
  the Senate and the House of Representatives--                           
       (1) that, in light of the remission by the Secretary of the Navy of 
   the sentence of the court-martial and the restoration of Captain McVay  
   to active duty by the Chief of Naval Operations, Fleet Admiral Chester  
   Nimitz, the American people should now recognize Captain McVay's lack of
   culpability for the tragic loss of the U.S.S. Indianapolis and the lives
   of the men who died as a result of the sinking of that vessel; and      
       (2) that, in light of the fact that certain exculpatory information 
   was not available to the court-martial board and that Captain McVay's   
   conviction resulted therefrom, Captain McVay's military record should   
   now reflect that he is exonerated for the loss of the U.S.S.            
   Indianapolis and so many of her crew.                                   
     (c) Unit Citation for Final Crew of U.S.S. Indianapolis.--The        
  Secretary of the Navy should award a Navy Unit Commendation to the      
  U.S.S. Indianapolis (CA 35) and her final crew.                         

                    SEC. 546. POSTHUMOUS ADVANCEMENT ON RETIRED LIST OF REAR      
          ADMIRAL HUSBAND E. KIMMEL AND MAJOR GENERAL WALTER C. SHORT, SENIOR     
          OFFICERS IN COMMAND IN HAWAII ON DECEMBER 7, 1941.                      
    (a)  Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:                

       (1) The late Rear Admiral Husband E. Kimmel, while serving in the   
   temporary grade of admiral, was the Commander in Chief of the United    
   States Fleet and the Commander in Chief, United States Pacific Fleet, at
   the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 
   1941, with an excellent and unassailable record throughout his career in
   the United States Navy before that date.                                
       (2) The late Major General Walter C. Short, while serving in the    
   temporary grade of lieutenant general, was the Commander of the United  
   States Army Hawaiian Department, at the time of the Japanese attack on  
   Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941, with an excellent and        
   unassailable record throughout his career in the United States Army     
   before that date.                                                       
       (3) Numerous investigations following the attack on Pearl Harbor    
   have documented that Admiral Kimmel and Lieutenant General Short were   
   not provided necessary and critical intelligence that was available,    
   that foretold of war with Japan, that warned of imminent attack, and    
   that would have alerted them to prepare for the attack, including such  
   essential communiques as the Japanese Pearl Harbor Bomb Plot message of 
   September 24, 1941, and the message sent from the Imperial Japanese     
   Foreign Ministry to the Japanese Ambassador in the United States from   
   December 6 to 7, 1941, known as the Fourteen-Part Message.              
       (4) On December 16, 1941, Admiral Kimmel and Lieutenant General     
   Short were relieved of their commands and returned to their permanent   
   grades of rear admiral and major general, respectively.                 
       (5) Admiral William Harrison Standley, who served as a member of the
   investigating commission known as the Roberts Commission that accused   
   Admiral Kimmel and Lieutenant General Short of ``dereliction of duty''  
   only six weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor, later disavowed the    
   report, maintaining that ``these two officers were martyred'' and ``if  
   they had been brought to trial, both would have been cleared of the     
   charge''.                                                               
     (6) On October 19, 1944, a Naval Court of Inquiry--                   

       (A) exonerated Admiral Kimmel on the grounds that his military      
   decisions and the disposition of his forces at the time of the December 
   7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor were proper ``by virtue of the          
   information that Admiral Kimmel had at hand which indicated neither the 
   probability nor the imminence of an air attack on Pearl Harbor'';       
       (B) criticized the higher command for not sharing with Admiral      
   Kimmel ``during the very critical period of November 26 to December 7,  
   1941, important information . . . regarding the Japanese situation'';   
   and                                                                     
       (C) concluded that the Japanese attack and its outcome was          
   attributable to no serious fault on the part of anyone in the naval     
   service.                                                                
       (7) On June 15, 1944, an investigation conducted by Admiral T. C.   
   Hart at the direction of the Secretary of the Navy produced evidence,   
   subsequently confirmed, that essential intelligence concerning Japanese 
   intentions and war plans was available in Washington but was not shared 
   with Admiral Kimmel.                                                    
       (8) On October 20, 1944, the Army Pearl Harbor Board of             
   Investigation determined that--                                         
       (A) Lieutenant General Short had not been kept ``fully advised of   
   the growing tenseness of the Japanese situation which indicated an      
   increasing necessity for better preparation for war'';                  
       (B) detailed information and intelligence about Japanese intentions 
   and war plans were available in ``abundance'' but were not shared with  
   Lieutenant General Short's Hawaii command; and                          
       (C) Lieutenant General Short was not provided ``on the evening of   
   December 6th and the early morning of December 7th, the critical        
   information indicating an almost immediate break with Japan, though     
   there was ample time to have accomplished this''.                       
       (9) The reports by both the Naval Court of Inquiry and the Army     
   Pearl Harbor Board of Investigation were kept secret, and Rear Admiral  
   Kimmel and Major General Short were denied their requests to defend     
   themselves through trial by court-martial.                              
       (10) The joint committee of Congress that was established to        
   investigate the conduct of Admiral Kimmel and Lieutenant General Short  
   completed, on May 31, 1946, a 1,075-page report which included the      
   conclusions of the committee that the two officers had not been guilty  
   of dereliction of duty.                                                 

       (11) On April 27, 1954, the Chief of Naval Personnel, Admiral J. L. 
   Holloway, Jr., recommended that Rear Admiral Kimmel be advanced in rank 
   in accordance with the provisions of the Officer Personnel Act of 1947. 
       (12) On November 13, 1991, a majority of the members of the Board   
   for the Correction of Military Records of the Department of the Army    
   found that Major General Short ``was unjustly held responsible for the  
   Pearl Harbor disaster'' and that ``it would be equitable and just'' to  
   advance him to the rank of lieutenant general on the retired list.      
       (13) In October 1994, the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral        
   Carlisle Trost, withdrew his 1988 recommendation against the advancement
   of Rear Admiral Kimmel and recommended that his case be reopened.       
       (14) Although the Dorn Report, a report on the results of a         
   Department of Defense study that was issued on December 15, 1995, did   
   not provide support for an advancement of Rear Admiral Kimmel or Major  
   General Short in grade, it did set forth as a conclusion of the study   
   that ``responsibility for the Pearl Harbor disaster should not fall     
   solely on the shoulders of Admiral Kimmel and Lieutenant General Short, 
   it should be broadly shared''.                                          
     (15) The Dorn Report found--                                          

       (A) that ``Army and Navy officials in Washington were privy to      
   intercepted Japanese diplomatic communications . . . which provided     
   crucial confirmation of the imminence of war'';                         
       (B) that ``the evidence of the handling of these messages in        
   Washington reveals some ineptitude, some unwarranted assumptions and    
   misestimations, limited coordination, ambiguous language, and lack of   
   clarification and followup at higher levels''; and                      
       (C) that ``together, these characteristics resulted in failure . . .
   to appreciate fully and to convey to the commanders in Hawaii the sense 
   of focus and urgency that these intercepts should have engendered''.    
       (16) On July 21, 1997, Vice Admiral David C. Richardson (United     
   States Navy, retired) responded to the Dorn Report with his own study   
   which confirmed findings of the Naval Court of Inquiry and the Army     
   Pearl Harbor Board of Investigation and established, among other facts, 
   that the war effort in 1941 was undermined by a restrictive intelligence
   distribution policy, and the degree to which the commanders of the      
   United States forces in Hawaii were not alerted about the impending     
   attack on Hawaii was directly attributable to the withholding of        
   intelligence from Admiral Kimmel and Lieutenant General Short.          
       (17) The Officer Personnel Act of 1947, in establishing a promotion 
   system for the Navy and the Army, provided a legal basis for the        
   President to honor any officer of the Armed Forces of the United States 
   who served his country as a senior commander during World War II with a 
   placement of that officer, with the advice and consent of the Senate, on
   the retired list with the highest grade held while on the active duty   
   list.                                                                   
       (18) Rear Admiral Kimmel and Major General Short are the only two   
   officers eligible for advancement under the Officer Personnel Act of    
   1947 as senior World War II commanders who were excluded from the list  
   of retired officers presented for advancement on the retired lists to   
   their highest wartime grades under that Act.                            
       (19) This singular exclusion of those two officers from advancement 
   on the retired list serves only to perpetuate the myth that the senior  
   commanders in Hawaii were derelict in their duty and responsible for the
   success of the attack on Pearl Harbor, a distinct and unacceptable      
   expression of dishonor toward two of the finest officers who have served
   in the Armed Forces of the United States.                               
       (20) Major General Walter Short died on September 23, 1949, and Rear
   Admiral Husband Kimmel died on May 14, 1968, without the honor of having
   been returned to their wartime grades as were their fellow commanders of
   World War II.                                                           
       (21) The Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Pearl Harbor Survivors       
   Association, the Admiral Nimitz Foundation, the Naval Academy Alumni    
   Association, the Retired Officers Association, and the Pearl Harbor     
   Commemorative Committee, and other associations and numerous retired    
   military officers have called for the rehabilitation of the reputations 
   and honor of Admiral Kimmel and Lieutenant General Short through their  
   posthumous advancement on the retired lists to their highest wartime    
   grades.                                                                 
     (b) Advancement of Rear Admiral Kimmel and Major General Short on    
  Retired Lists.--(1) The President is requested--                        
       (A) to advance the late Rear Admiral Husband E. Kimmel, United      
   States Navy (retired), to the grade of admiral on the retired list of   
   the Navy; and                                                           
       (B) to advance the late Major General Walter C. Short, United States
   Army (retired), to the grade of lieutenant general on the retired list  
   of the Army.                                                            
     (2) Any advancement in grade on a retired list requested under       
  paragraph (1) shall not increase or change the compensation or benefits 
  from the United States to which any person is now or may in the future  
  be entitled based upon the military service of the officer advanced.    
     (c) Sense of Congress Regarding the Professional Performance of      
  Admiral Kimmel and Lieutenant General Short.--It is the sense of        
  Congress--                                                              
       (1) that the late Rear Admiral Husband E. Kimmel performed his      
   duties as Commander in Chief, United States Pacific Fleet, competently  
   and professionally and, therefore, that the losses incurred by the      
   United States in the attacks on the naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, 
   and other targets on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941,   
   were not a result of dereliction in the performance of those duties by  
   then Admiral Kimmel; and                                                
       (2) that the late Major General Walter C. Short performed his duties
   as Commanding General, Hawaiian Department, competently and             
   professionally and, therefore, that the losses incurred by the United   
   States in the attacks on Hickam Army Air Field and Schofield Barracks,  
   Hawaii, and other targets on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, on December 7, 
   1941, were not a result of dereliction in the performance of those      
   duties by then Lieutenant General Short.

          WAR II ACTIONS.                                                         
    (a)  Findings.--The Congress finds the following:                     

       (1) On August 2, 1944, a squadron of P 51s from the United States   
   364th Fighter Group strafed a German munitions train in Remy, France.   
       (2) The resulting explosion killed Lieutenant Houston Braly, one of 
   the attacking pilots, and destroyed much of the village of Remy,        
   including seven stained glass windows in the 13th century church.       
       (3) Despite threats of reprisals from the occupying German          
   authorities, the citizens of Remy recovered Lieutenant Braly's body from
   the wreckage, buried his body with dignity and honor in the church's    
   cemetery, and decorated the grave site daily with fresh flowers.        
       (4) On Armistice Day, 1995, the village of Remy renamed the         
   crossroads near the site of Lieutenant Braly's death in his honor.      
       (5) The surviving members of the 364th Fighter Group desire to      
   express their gratitude to the brave citizens of Remy.                  
       (6) To express their gratitude, the surviving members of the 364th  
   Fighter Group have organized a nonprofit corporation to raise funds,    
   through its project ``Windows for Remy'', to restore the church's       
   stained glass windows.                                                  
     (b) Commendation and Recognition.--The Congress commends the bravery 
  and honor of the citizens of Remy, France, for their actions with       
  respect to the American fighter pilot Lieutenant Houston Braly during   
  and after August 1944, and recognizes the efforts of the surviving      
  members of the United States 364th Fighter Group to raise funds to      
  restore the stained glass windows of Remy's 13th century church.

          CODE OF MILITARY JUSTICE.                                               
    (a)  Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:                

       (1) The American military justice system predates the United States 
   itself, having had a continuous existence since the enactment of the    
   first American Articles of War by the Continental Congress in 1775.     
       (2) Pursuant to article I of the Constitution, which explicitly     
   empowers Congress ``To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of  
   the land and naval Forces'', Congress enacted the Articles of War and an
   Act to Govern the Navy, which were revised on several occasions between 
   the ratification of the Constitution and the end of World War II.       
       (3) Dissatisfaction with the administration of military justice     
   during World War I and World War II (including dissatisfaction arising  
   from separate systems of justice for the Army and for the Navy and      
   Marine Corps) led both to significant statutory reforms in the Articles 
   of War and to the convening of a committee, under Department of Defense 
   auspices, to draft a single code of military justice applicable         
   uniformly to all of the Armed Forces.                                   
       (4) The committee, chaired by Professor Edmund M. Morgan of Harvard 
   Law School, made recommendations that formed the basis of bills         
   introduced in Congress to establish such a uniform code of military     
   justice.                                                                
       (5) After lengthy hearings and debate on the congressional          
   proposals, the Uniform Code of Military Justice was enacted into law on 
   May 5, 1950, when President Harry S Truman signed the legislation.      
       (6) President Truman then issued a revised Manual for Courts-Martial
   implementing the new code, and the code became effective on May 31,     
   1951.                                                                   
       (7) One of the greatest innovations of the Uniform Code of Military 
   Justice (now codified as chapter 47 of title 10, United States Code) was
   the establishment of a civilian court of appeals within the military    
   justice system. That court, the United States Court of Military Appeals 
   (now the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces), held its 
   first session on July 25, 1951.                                         
       (8) Congress enacted major revisions of the Uniform Code of Military
   Justice in 1968 and 1983 and, in addition, has amended the code from    
   time to time over the years as practice under the code indicated a need 
   for updating the substance or procedure of the law of military justice. 
       (9) The evolution of the system of military justice under the       
   Uniform Code of Military Justice may be traced in the decisions of the  
   Courts of Criminal Appeals of each of the Armed Forces and the decisions
   of the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. These courts
   have produced a unique body of jurisprudence upon which commanders and  
   judge advocates rely in the performance of their duties.                
       (10) It is altogether fitting that the 50th anniversary of the      
   Uniform Code of Military Justice be duly commemorated.                  
    (b)  Commemoration.--The Congress--                                   

       (1) requests the President to issue a proclamation commemorating the
   50th anniversary of the Uniform Code of Military Justice; and           
       (2) calls upon the Department of Defense, the Armed Forces, and the 
   United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces and interested      
   organizations and members of the bar and the public to commemorate the  
   occasion of that anniversary with ceremonies and activities befitting   
   its importance.                                                         

           Subtitle F--Matters Relating to Recruiting

          PLAN ANNUITIES FOR SURVIVING SPOUSES AGE 62 OR OLDER.                   
     (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that, subject to 
  the requirements and limitations of congressional budget procedures     
  relating to the enactment of new (or increased) entitlement authority,  
  there should be enacted legislation that increases the annuities        
  provided under the Survivor Benefit Plan program for surviving spouses  
  who are 62 years of age or older in order to reduce (and eventually     
  eliminate) the different levels of annuities under that program for     
  surviving spouses who are under age 62 and those who are 62 years of age
  and older.                                                              
     (b) Survivor Benefit Plan.--For purposes of this section, the term   
  ``Survivor Benefit Plan program'' means the program of annuities for    
  survivors of members of the uniformed services provided under subchapter
  II of chapter 73 of title 10, United States Code.

   increased enrollment of such dependents in medicaid programs.

  submit to Congress a report on the results of the study under this

          ``2306c. Multiyear contracts: acquisition of services                   

     ``(a) Authority.--Subject to subsections (d) and (e), the head of an 
  agency may enter into contracts for periods of not more than five years 
  for services described in subsection (b), and for items of supply       
  related to such services, for which funds would otherwise be available  
  for obligation only within the fiscal year for which appropriated       
  whenever the head of the agency finds that--                            
       ``(1) there will be a continuing requirement for the services       
   consonant with current plans for the proposed contract period;          
       ``(2) the furnishing of such services will require a substantial    
   initial investment in plant or equipment, or the incurrence of          
   substantial contingent liabilities for the assembly, training, or       
   transportation of a specialized work force; and

   the United States by encouraging effective competition and promoting    
   economies in operation.                                                 
     ``(b) Covered Services.--The authority under subsection (a) applies  
  to the following types of services:                                     
       ``(1) Operation, maintenance, and support of facilities and         
   installations.

   skills (for example, pilot and air crew members; foreign language

  for services under the authority of this section, the head of the agency
  shall be guided by the following principles:                            
       ``(1) The portion of the cost of any plant or equipment amortized as
   a cost of contract performance should not exceed the ratio between the  
   period of contract performance and the anticipated useful commercial    
   life of such plant or equipment. Useful commercial life, for this       
   purpose, means the commercial utility of the facilities rather than the 
   physical life thereof, with due consideration given to such factors as  
   location of facilities, specialized nature thereof, and obsolescence.   
       ``(2) Consideration shall be given to the desirability of obtaining 
   an option to renew the contract for a reasonable period not to exceed   
   three years, at prices not to include charges for plant, equipment and  
   other nonrecurring costs, already amortized.                            
       ``(3) Consideration shall be given to the desirability of reserving 
   in the agency the right, upon payment of the                            

                    unamortized portion of the cost of the plant or equipment, to 
          take title thereto under appropriate circumstances.                     
     ``(d) Restrictions Applicable Generally.--(1) The head of an agency  
  may not initiate under this section a contract for services that        
  includes an unfunded contingent liability in excess of $20,000,000      
  unless the committees of Congress named in paragraph (5) are notified of
  the proposed contract at least 30 days in advance of the award of the   
  proposed contract.                                                      
     ``(2) The head of an agency may not initiate a multiyear contract for
  services under this section if the value of the multiyear contract would
  exceed $500,000,000 unless authority for the contract is specifically   
  provided by law.                                                        
     ``(3) The head of an agency may not terminate a multiyear procurement

  the proposed termination is provided to the committees of Congress named
  in paragraph (5).                                                       
     ``(4) Before any contract described in subsection (a) that contains a
  clause setting forth a cancellation ceiling in excess of $100,000,000   
  may be awarded, the head of the agency concerned shall give written     
  notification of the proposed contract and of the proposed cancellation  
  ceiling for that contract to the committees of Congress named in        
  paragraph (5), and such contract may not then be awarded until the end  
  of a period of 30 days beginning on the date of such notification.      
     ``(5) The committees of Congress referred to in paragraphs (1), (3), 
  and (4) are as follows:

  fiscal year, the contract shall be canceled or terminated, and the costs
  of cancellation or termination may be paid from--

   contract concerned;

  a multiyear contract is a contract for the purchase of services for more
  than one, but not more than five, program years. Such a contract may    
  provide that performance under the contract during the second and       
  subsequent years of the contract is contingent upon the appropriation of
  funds and (if it does so provide) may provide for a cancellation payment
  to be made to the contractor if such appropriations are not made.''.
