     SEC. ____. SENSE OF THE SENATE CONCERNING PROGRAMS OF THE 
                   CORPS OF ENGINEERS.

       (a) Findings.--The Senate finds that--
       (1) the Corps of Engineers provides quality, responsive 
     engineering services to the United States, including 
     planning, designing, building, and operating invaluable water 
     resources and civil works projects;
       (2) the ports of the United States are a vital component of 
     the economy of the United States, playing a critical role in 
     international trade and commerce and in maintaining the 
     energy supply of the United States;
       (3) interruption of port operations would have a 
     devastating effect on the United States;
       (4) the navigation program of the Corps enables 
     2,400,000,000 tons of commerce to move on navigable 
     waterways;
       (5) the Department of Transportation estimates that those 
     cargo movements have created jobs for 13,000,000 people;
       (6) flood damage reduction structures provided and 
     maintained by the Corps save taxpayers $21,000,000,000 in 
     damages every year, in addition to numerous human lives;
       (7) the Corps designs and manages the construction of 
     military facilities for the Army and Air Force while 
     providing support to the Department of Defense and other 
     Federal agencies;
       (8) the Civil Works program of the Corps adds significant 
     value to the economy of the United States;
       (9) through contracting methods, the civil works program 
     employs thousands of private sector contract employees, as 
     well as Federal employees, in all aspects of construction, 
     science, engineering, architecture, management, planning, 
     design, operations, and maintenance; and
       (10) the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that 
     $1,000,000,000 expended for the Civil Works program generates 
     approximately 40,000 jobs in support of construction 
     operation and maintenance activities in the United States.
       (b) Budgetary Assumptions.--It is the sense of the Senate 
     that--
       (1) to perform vital functions described in subsection (a), 
     the Corps of Engineers requires additional funding in order 
     to sustain aging infrastructure of, and address the growing 
     demand for water supply in, the United States; and
       (2) the budgetary totals in this resolution assume that the 
     level of funding provided for programs of the Corps described 
     in subsection (a) will not be reduced below current baseline 
     spending levels established for the programs.
                                 ______

     SEC. ____ . SENSE OF THE SENATE ON CORPORATE TAX HAVEN 
                   LOOPHOLES.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that companies are taking 
     advantage of loopholes in the United States tax code to 
     direct taxable income to tax haven jurisdictions, some of 
     which have excessive bank secrecy laws and a poor record of 
     cooperation with United States civil and criminal tax 
     enforcement.
       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate 
     that the Senate should act to stop companies from avoiding 
     paying their fair share of United States taxes by--
       (1) addressing the problem of corporations that have 
     renounced their United States citizenship (``inverted'') by 
     relocating their headquarters to tax haven jurisdictions 
     while maintaining their primary offices and production or 
     service facilities in the United States; and
       (2) addressing the problem of Bermuda-based insurance 
     companies that are using reinsurance agreements with their 
     subsidiaries to direct property and casualty insurance 
     premiums out of the United States into Bermuda to reduce 
     their United States taxes in a way that places United States 
     property and casualty insurance companies at a competitive 
     disadvantage.

congressional budget for the United States Government for fiscal year

on the table; as follows:

     SEC. ____ . FUNDING FOR AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       (1) Studies show that organized extracurricular activities, 
     such as after-school programs, reduce crime, drug use, and 
     teenage pregnancy.
       (2) According to the FBI, youth are most at risk for 
     committing violent acts and being victims of violent crimes 
     between 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.--after school is out and 
     before parents arrive home.
       (3) There remains a great need for after-school programs. 
     The Census Bureau reported that at least 8 to 15 million 
     children have no place to go after school is out.
       (3) There remains a great need for after-school programs. 
     The Census Bureau reported that at least 8 to 15 million 
     children have no place to go after school is out.
       (4) Current funding for after-school programs provide 
     almost 1.4 million children across the country a safe and 
     enriching place to go afterschool instead of being home 
     alone.
       (5) The Administration's proposed FY 04 budget has 
     recommended funding after school programs at $600,000,000. 
     This represents a 40-percent cut in program funding and will 
     result in 570,000 fewer children having access to afterschool 
     programs.
       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate 
     that the levels in this resolution assume funding for 21st 
     Century Community Learning Centers is at least enough to 
     ensure the number of children participating in afterschool 
     programs does not.
                                 ______
                                 
  SA 384. Mrs. BOXER submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by 
her to the concurrent resolution S. Con. Res. 23, setting forth the 
congressional budget for the United States Government for fiscal year 
2004 and including the appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal year 
2003 and for fiscal years 2005 through 2013; which was ordered to lie 
on the table; as follows:

       On page 4, line 15, increase the amount by $50,000,000.
       On page 5, line 5, increase the amount by $50,000,000.

       On page 25, line 17, increase the amount by $50,000,000.
       On page 79, after line 22, insert the following:

     SEC. ____. FUNDING FOR IMPACT AID.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds as follows:
       (1) Impact Aid assists 1,275 school districts, serving 
     15,000,000 children. Of those children 385,171 are military 
     dependent children.
       (2) At a time when many States have initiated steep cuts in 
     education funding, Impact Aid helps in easing the financial 
     burden on school districts with large military populations.
       (3) At a time when many military parents have been deployed 
     overseas, schools with large military populations are 
     reporting many students experiencing difficulty adjusting to 
     their parents being absent or physically threatened. As a 
     result, school officials report increased behavioral 
     problems, academic problems, and an increased need for 
     school-based counseling.
       (4) Increased funding for Impact Aid will ensure that 
     federally impacted schools will continue to serve some of 
     these children's basic educational needs, as well as special 
     needs, such as counseling for children with a parent overseas 
     on active duty.
       (5) Despite the Administration's proposed $173,000,000 cut 
     in Impact Aid funding both the Senate and House of 
     Representatives Committees on the Budget rejected this cut. 
     Furthermore, the budget resolution of the House of 
     Representatives assumes an increase in Impact Aid funding to 
     $1,238,226,000.
       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate 
     that the levels in this resolution assume that Impact Aid 
     funding is funded at $1,238,226,000.
                                 ______

     of the Senate in order to prepare a report containing--

     SEC. ____. SENSE OF THE SENATE CONCERNING PROGRAMS OF THE 
                   CORPS OF ENGINEERS.

       (a) Findings.--The Senate finds that--
       (1) the Corps of Engineers provides quality, responsive 
     engineering services to the United State, including planning, 
     designing, building, and operating invaluable water resources 
     and civil works projects;
       (2) the ports of the United States are a vital component of 
     the economy of the United States, playing a critical role in 
     international trade and commerce and in maintaining the 
     energy supply of the United States;
       (3) interruption of port operations would have a 
     devastating effect on the United States;
       (4) the navigation program of the Corps enables 
     2,400,000,000 tons of commerce to move on navigable 
     waterways;
       (5) the Department of Transportation estimates that those 
     cargo movements have created jobs for 13,000,000 people;
       (6) flood damage reduction structures provided and 
     maintained by the Corps save taxpayers $21,000,000,000 in 
     damages every year, in addition to numerous human lives;
       (7) the Corps designs and manages the construction of 
     military facilities for the Army and Air Force while 
     providing support to the Department of Defense and other 
     Federal agencies;
       (8) the Civil Works program of the Corps adds significant 
     value to the economy of the United States, including 
     recreation and ecosystem restoration;
       (9) through contracting methods, the civil works program 
     employs thousands of private sector contract employees, as 
     well as Federal employees, in all aspects of construction, 
     science, engineering, architecture, management, planning, 
     design, operations, and maintenance; and
       (10) the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that 
     $1,000,000,000 expended for the Civil Works program generates 
     approximately 40,000 jobs in support of construction 
     operation and maintenance activities in the United States.
       (b) Budgetary Assumptions.--It is the sense of the Senate 
     that--
       (1) to perform vital functions described in subsection (a), 
     the Corps of Engineers requires additional funding; and
       (2) the budgetary totals in this resolution assume that the 
     level of funding provided for programs of the Corps described 
     in subsection (a) will not be reduced below current baseline 
     spending levels established for the programs.

     SEC.   . SENSE OF THE SENATE REGARDING HIGHWAY SPENDING:

       (a) Findings.--The Senate makes the following findings:
       (1) Highway construction funding should increase over 
     current levels.
       (2) The Senate Budget Committee-passed Resolution increases 
     Highway funding above the President's request.
       (3) All vehicles, whether they are operated by gasoline, 
     gasohol, or electricity, do damage to our highways.
       (4) As set out in TEA-21, the direct relationship between 
     excise taxes and highway spending makes sense and should be 
     maintained.
       (5) Highways should be funded through user fees such as 
     excise taxes and not through the General Fund of the 
     Treasury.
       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the Sense of the Senate 
     that the Senate should only consider legislation that 
     increases highway spending if such legislation charges 
     highway user fees to pay for such increased spending.

     promoting the health, growth, and development of children;
       (C) provide United States agricultural producers and food 
     manufacturers with important and substantial markets through 
     which they can obtain and sustain livelihoods; and
       (D) are due to be reauthorized and improved during the 
     108th Congress; and

       (A) maintains current levels of funding for child 
     nutrition;
       (B) extends and improves nutrition assistance programs,

       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate

     the Secretary of Agriculture below current baseline spending 
     levels for the programs.

     SEC. 1. FINDINGS--THE SENATE FINDS THAT:

       Twenty-eight years ago, the federal government promised to 
     pay for 40 percent of the additional cost of special 
     education. Presently, the federal share is only 17.6 percent. 
     The nation's school districts cannot afford such a large 
     unfunded mandate. Thus, it is imperative that Congress 
     increase IDEA funding to the long-promised 40 percent share.
