    This supplemental request would provide an additional $100 million 
to ensure that participation does not decrease between 1996 and 1997. 
The 1997 appropriation is insufficient to support the 1996 year-end 
participation level. WIC program funding regulations require that first 
priority for funding go to provide all State agencies with stability 
funding, which is each State agency's prior year food grant plus 
inflation. As the funds needed to maintain participation in some States 
may be greater than the grants provided by 1997 appropria-

[[Page 1140]]

tions, the Department will need flexibility in allocating the 
supplemental funding. This flexibility will ensure that the Secretary 
allocates funds with the goal of minimizing fluctuations in program 
participation.

    This supplemental request would transfer balances made available for 
the acquisition and rehabilitation of HUD-owned property and property 
with HUD-held mortgages. After acquisition and rehabilitation, these 
properties were to be made available for homeownership to low-income

dramatically reduced the number of HUD-owned properties and HUD-held 
mortgages, thus eliminating the basis on which the HOPE program 
operated. Therefore, the balances are no longer needed.

    This supplemental request would make a technical correction in the 
appropriations language to make the funds for One-Stop Career Centers 
available on a program year basis; e.g., funds would be available 
beginning July 1, 1997. The 1997 appropriation made the funds for this 
program available on a fiscal year basis, but One-Stop Career Centers 
have been previously funded by program year. The effect of this proposal 
is to reverse the current double funding of the Centers from both the 
1996 and 1997 funds during October 1, 1996, through June 30, 1997.

    The change to the program year would allow for the continuing roll-
out of implementation grants consistent with the Department's original 
strategy for grant-making.

organizations, pursuant to treaties ratified pursuant to the advice and 
consent of the Senate, conventions or specific acts of Congress, and to 
pay assessed and other expenses of international peacekeeping activities

Authorization Act, fiscal years 1994 and 1995 (P.L. 103-236) for 
arrearages incurred prior to October 1, 1995.

the U.N. affiliated and other international organizations and for 
international peacekeeping. Another $100 million is requested in 1998 in 
the Contributions for international peacekeeping activities and 
Contributions to international organizations (CIO) accounts. In 1997, 
the United States will pursue reforms for international organizations 
consistent with U.S. interests, aimed at a reduction of the annual 
amount paid by the U.S. to these organizations for their next biennium

peacekeeping arrears, the notwithstanding clause authorizes the 
Department of State to pay arrears incurred prior to October 1, 1995 at 
the then applicable assessment rate of 30.4 percent.

1, 1997. In addition, the Coast Guard will incur unplanned retirement 
costs due to streamlining measures, such as High-Year-Tenure, Temporary-

    This supplemental request would provide $318 million in additional 
Federal-aid Highway obligation authority for 1997 and make the 
additional limitation available to those States that had their 1997 
limitation reduced as a result of a recent correction of a clerical 
error made in recording the Highway Trust Fund receipts in 1994. This 
error resulted in the overstatement of Highway Trust Fund contributions 
by $1.5 billion in 1995. These funds should have been credited to the 
1994 Highway Trust Fund contributions.

                         River Basin Commissions

       (Supplemental language now requested, existing legislation)

    Sec. ________. Beginning in fiscal year 1997 and thereafter, the 
United States members and the alternate members appointed under the 
Susquehanna River Basin Compact (Public Law 91-575), and the Delaware 
River Basin Compact (Public Law 87-328), shall be officers or employees 
of the Executive Branch, who hold positions that are Presidential 
appointments with Senate confirmation, and who shall serve without 
additional compensation.

    This supplemental language request would ensure that Federal 
interests are represented in Commission proceedings. P.L. 104-206 did 
not provide funding for the River Basin Commissions, and the 1998 Budget 
requests no funds for these Commissions. This supplemental language 
would redefine the Federal Commission positions so that, beginning in 
1997 and thereafter, the United States members and alternate members 
appointed under the Susquehanna River Basin Compact and the Delaware 
River Basin Compact shall be officers or employees of the Executive 
Branch who shall serve without additional compensation.
