Subsection 1. Findings

      Congress finds that--
            (1) the use of children in the production of 
        sexually explicit material, including photographs, 
        films, videos, computer images, and other visual 
        depictions, is a form of sexual abuse which can result 
        in physical or psychological harm, or both, to the 
        children involved;
            (2) where children are used in its production, 
        child pornography permanently records the victim's 
        abuse, and its continued existence causes the child 
        victims of sexual abuse continuing harm by haunting 
        those children in future years;
            (3) child pornography is often used as part of a 
        method of seducing other children into sexual activity; 
        a child who is reluctant to engage in sexual activity 
        with an adult, or to pose for sexually explicit 
        photographs, can sometimes be convinced by viewing 
        depictions of other children ``having fun'' 
        participating in such activity;
            (4) child pornography is often used by pedophiles 
        and child sexual abusers to stimulate and whet their 
        own sexual appetites, and as a model for sexual acting 
        out with children; such use of child pornography can 
        desensitize the viewer to the pathology of sexual abuse 
        or exploitation of children, so that it can become 
        acceptable to and even preferred by the viewer;
            (5) new photographic and computer imagining 
        technologies make it possible to produce by electronic, 
        mechanical, or other means, visual depictions of what 
        appear to be children engaging in sexually explicit 
        conduct that are virtually indistinguishable to the 
        unsuspecting viewer from unretouched photographic 
        images of actual children engaging in sexually explicit 
        conduct;
            (6) computers and computer imaging technology can 
        be used to--
                    (A) alter sexually explicit photographs, 
                films, and videos in such a way as to make it 
                virtually impossible for unsuspecting viewers 
                to identify individuals, or to determine if the 
                offending material was produced using children;
                    (B) produce visual depictions of child 
                sexual activity designed to satisfy the 
                preferences of individual child molesters, 
                pedophiles, and pornography collectors; and
                    (C) alter innocent pictures of children to 
                create visual depictions of those children 
                engaging in sexual conduct;
            (7) the creation or distribution of child 
        pornography which includes an image of a recognizable 
        minor invades the child's privacy and reputational 
        interests, since images that are created showing a 
        child's face or other identifiable feature on a body 
        engaging in sexually explicit conduct can haunt the 
        minor for years to come;
            (8) the effect of visual depictions of child sexual 
        activity on a child molester or pedophile using that 
        material to stimulate or whet his own sexual appetites, 
        or on a child where the material is being used as a 
        means of seducing or breaking down the child's 
        inhibitions to sexual abuse or exploitation, is the 
        same whether the child pornography consists of 
        photographic depictions of actual children or visual 
        depictions produced wholly or in part by electronic, 
        mechanical, or other means, including by computer, 
        which are virtually indistinguishable to the 
        unsuspecting viewer from photographic images of actual 
        children;
            (9) the danger to children who are seduced and 
        molested with the aid of child sex pictures is just as 
        great when the child pornographer or child molester 
        uses visual depictions of child sexual activity 
        produced wholly or in part by electronic, mechanical, 
        or other means, including by computer, as when the 
        material consists of unretouched photographic images of 
        actual children engaging in sexually explicit conduct;
            (10)(A) the existence of and traffic in child 
        pornographic images creates the potential for many 
        types of harm in the community and presents a clear and 
        present danger to all children; and
            (B) it inflames the desires of child molesters, 
        pedophiles, and child pornographers who prey on 
        children, thereby increasing the creation and 
        distribution of child pornography and the sexual abuse 
        and exploitation of actual children who are victimized 
        as a result of the existence and use of these 
        materials;
            (11)(A) the sexualization and eroticization of 
        minors through any form of child pornographic images 
        has a deleterious effect on all children by encouraging 
        a societal perception of children as sexual objects and 
        leading to further sexual abuse and exploitation of 
        them; and
            (B) this sexualization of minors creates an 
        unwholesome environment which affects the 
        psychological, mental and emotional development of 
        children and undermines the efforts of parents and 
        families to encourage the sound mental, moral and 
        emotional development of children;
            (12) prohibiting the possession and viewing of 
        child pornography will encourage the possessors of such 
        material to rid themselves of or destroy the material, 
        thereby helping to protect the victims of child 
        pornography and to eliminate the market for the sexual 
        exploitative use of children; and
            (13) the elimination of child pornography and the 
        protection of children from sexual exploitation provide 
        a compelling governmental interest for prohibiting the 
        production, distribution, possession, sale, or viewing 
        of visual depictions of children engaging in sexually 
        explicit conduct, including both photographic images of 
        actual children engaging in such conduct and depictions 
        produced by computer or other means which are virtually 
        indistinguishable to the unsuspecting viewer from 
        photographic images of actual children engaging in such 
        conduct.

                depiction of a minor engaging in sexually 
                explicit conduct; and
            ``(9) `identifiable minor'--

guarantee or a commitment to guarantee obligations under title 
XI of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 (46 App. U.S.C. 1271 et 
seq.), upon such terms as the Secretary may prescribe, to 
assist in the reactivation and modernization of any shipyard in 
the United States that is closed on the date of the enactment 
of this Act, if the Secretary finds that--
            (1) the closed shipyard historically built military 
        vessels and responsible entities now seek to reopen it 
        as an internationally competitive commercial shipyard;
            (2)(A) the closed shipyard has been designated by 
        the President as a public-private partnership project; 
        or
            (B) has a reuse plan approved by the Navy in which 
        commercial shipbuilding and repair are primary 
        activities and has a revolving economic conversion fund 
        approved by the Department of Defense; and
            (3) the State in which the shipyard is located, and 
        each other involved State, or a State-chartered agency, 
        is making a significant financial investment in the 
        overall cost of reactivation and modernization as its 
        contribution to the reactivation and modernization 
        project, in addition to the funds required by 
        subsection (d)(2) of this section.
      (b) Waivers.--Notwithstanding any other provision of 
title XI of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 (46 App. U.S.C. 1271 
et seq.), the Secretary shall not apply the requirements of 
section 1104A(d) of that Act when issuing a guarantee or a 
commitment to guarantee an obligation under this section.
      (c) Conditions.--The Secretary shall impose such 
conditions on the issuance of a guarantee or a commitment to 
guarantee under this section as are necessary to protect the 
interests of the United States from the risk of a default. The 
Secretary shall consider the interdependency of such shipyard 
modernization and reactivation projects and related vessel loan 
guarantee requests pending under title XI of the Merchant 
Marine Act, 1936 (46 App. U.S.C. 1271 et seq.) before issuing a 
guarantee of a commitment to guarantee under this section.
      (d) Funding Provisions.--
            (1) The Secretary may not guarantee or commit to 
        guarantee obligations under this section that exceed

        seq.) in advance of the Secretary's issuance of a 
        guarantee or a commitment to guarantee under this 
        section shall be provided by the State in which the 
        shipyard is located, and other involved States, or by a 
        State-chartered agency, and deposited by the Secretary 
        in the financing account established under the Federal 
        Credit Reform Act of 1990 (2 U.S.C. 661a et seq.) for 
        loan guarantees issued by the Secretary under title XI 
        of the Merchant Marine Act of 1936 (46 App. U.S.C. 1271 
        et seq.). No federally appropriated funds shall be 
        available for this purpose. The funds deposited into 
        that financing account shall be held and applied by the 
        Secretary in accordance with the provisions of the 
        Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990 (2 U.S.C. 661a et 
        seq.), except that, unless the Secretary shall have 
        earlier paid an obligee or been required to pay an 
        obligee pursuant to the terms of a loan guarantee, the 
        funds deposited in that financing account shall be 
        returned, upon the expiration of the Secretary's loan 
        guarantee, to the State, States, or State-chartered 
        agency which originally provided the funds to the 
        Secretary.
            (3) Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law 
        or regulation, the cost (as that term is defined by the 
        Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990 (2 U.S.C. 661a et 
        seq.)) of a guarantee or commitment to guarantee issued 
        under this section--
                    (A) may only be determined with reference 
                to the merits of the specific closed shipyard 
                reactivation project which is the subject of 
                that guarantee or commitment to guarantee, 
                without reference to any other project, type of 
                project, or averaged risk; and
                    (B) may not be used in determining the cost 
                of any other project, type of project, or 
                averaged risk applicable to guarantees or 
                commitments to guarantee issued under title XI 
                of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 (46 App. 
                U.S.C. 1271 et seq.).

              economic support fund assistance for israel


      Sec. 517. The Congress finds that progress on the peace 
process in the Middle East is vitally important to United 
States security interests in the region. The Congress 
recognizes that, in fulfilling its obligations under the Treaty 
of Peace Between the Arab Republic of Egypt and the State of 
Israel, done at Washington on March 26, 1979, Israel incurred 
severe economic burdens. Furthermore, the Congress recognizes 
that an economically and militarily secure Israel serves the 
security interests of the United States, for a secure Israel is 
an Israel which has the incentive and confidence to continue 
pursuing the peace process. Therefore, the Congress declares 
that, subject to the availability of appropriations, it is the 
policy and the intention of the United States that the funds 
provided in annual appropriations for the Economic Support Fund 
which are allocated to Israel shall not be less than the annual 
debt repayment (interest and principal) from Israel to the 
United States Government in recognition that such a principle 
serves United States interests in the region.


   prohibition on funding for abortions and involuntary sterilization


      Sec. 518. None of the funds made available to carry out

be used to pay for the performance of abortions as a method of 
family planning or to motivate or coerce any person to practice 
abortions. None of the funds made available to carry out part I 
of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended, may be used 
to pay for the performance of involuntary sterilization as a 
method of family planning or to coerce or provide any financial 
incentive to any person to undergo sterilizations. None of the 
funds made available to carry out part I of the Foreign 
Assistance Act of 1961, as amended, may be used to pay for any 
biomedical research which relates in whole or in part, to 
methods of, or the performance of, abortions or involuntary 
sterilization as a means of family planning. None of the funds 
made available to carry out part I of the Foreign Assistance 
Act of 1961, as amended, may be obligated or expended for any 
country or organization if the President certifies that the use 
of these funds by any such country or organization would 
violate any of the above provisions related to abortions and 
involuntary sterilizations: Provided, That none of the funds 
made available under this Act may be used to lobby for or 
against abortion.


                 authorization for population planning


      Sec. 518A. (a) None of the funds made available in title

submit a finding to the Congress regarding the impact of the 
limitation on obligations imposed by subsection (a) of this 
section on the proper functioning of the population planning 
program. If such Presidential finding indicates that the 
limitation is having a negative impact on the proper 
functioning of the population planning program, funds for 
population planning activities and other population assistance 
referred to in subsection (a) may be made available beginning 
March 1, 1997, notwithstanding the July 1, 1997, limitation set 
forth in subsection (a), if the Congress approves such finding 
by adoption of a joint resolution of approval not later than 
February 28, 1997, in accordance with subsection (e).
      (e) Congressional Review Procedure.--
            (1) This subsection is enacted by Congress--
                    (A) as an exercise of the rulemaking power 
                of the House of Representatives and the Senate, 
                respectively, and as such it is deemed a part 
                of the rules of each House, respectively, but 
                applicable only with respect to the procedure 
                to be followed in that House in the case of 
                resolutions described by paragraph (2) of this 
                subsection; and it supersedes other rules only 
                to the extent that it is inconsistent 
                therewith; and
                    (B) with full recognition of the 
                constitutional right of either House to change 
                the rules (so far as those rules relate to the 
                procedure of that House) at any time, in the 
                same manner, and to the same extent as in the 
                case of any other rule of such House.
            (2) For purposes of this section, the term 
        ``resolution'' means a joint resolution, the text of 
        which is as follows: ``That the House of 
        Representatives and Senate approve the Presidential 
        finding, submitted to the Congress on XXXXX, that the 
        limitation on obligations imposed by section 518A(a) of 
        the Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related 
        Programs Appropriations Act, 1997, is having a negative 
        impact on the proper functioning of the population 
        planning program.''. The blank space therein shall be 
        filled with the date on which the President submits his 
        finding to the House of Representatives and the Senate.
            (3) On the day on which the President submits a 
        finding under this section to the Congress, a joint 
        resolution described in paragraph (2) shall be 
        introduced (by request) in the House by the majority 
        leader of the House, for himself and the minority 
        leader of the House, or by Members of the House 
        designated by the majority leader and minority leader 
        of the House; and shall be introduced (by request) in 
        the Senate by the majority leader of the Senate, for 
        himself and the minority leader of the Senate, or by 
        Members of the Senate designated by the majority leader 
        and minority leader of the Senate. If either House is 
        not in session on the day on which the President 
        submits such finding, the resolution shall be 
        introduced in that House, as provided in the preceding 
        sentence, on the first day thereafter on which that 
        House is in session. A resolution once introduced in 
        the House with respect to a Presidential finding under 
        this section shall be referred to 1 or more committees 
        (and all resolutions with respect to the same 
        Presidential finding shall be referred to the same 
        committee or committees) by the Speaker of the House of 
        Representatives. A resolution once introduced in the 
        Senate with respect to a Presidential finding under 
        this section shall be referred to the appropriate 
        committee (and all resolutions with respect to the same 
        Presidential finding shall be referred to the same 
        committee) by the President of the Senate.
            (4) No amendment to a resolution introduced under 
        this section shall be in order in either the House of 
        Representatives or the Senate; and no motion to suspend 
        the application of this subsection shall be in order in 
        either House, nor shall it be in order in either House 
        for the presiding officer to entertain a request to 
        suspend the application of this subsection by unanimous 
        consent.
            (5)(A) If any committee to which a resolution with 
        respect to a Presidential finding under this section 
        has been referred has not reported it at the end of 5 
        calendar days after its introduction, such committee 
        shall be automatically discharged from further 
        consideration of the resolution and it shall be placed 
        on the appropriate calendar. A vote on final passage of 
        the resolution, shall be taken in each House on or 
        before February 28, 1997. If prior to the passage by 1 
        House of a resolution of that House under this section, 
        that House receives the same resolution from the other 
        House, then--
                    (i) the procedure in that House shall be 
                the same as if no resolution had been received 
                from the other House, but
                    (ii) the vote on final passage shall be on 
                the resolution of the other House.
            (6)(A) A motion in the House of Representatives to 
        proceed to the consideration of a resolution under this 
        section shall be highly privileged and not debatable. 
        An amendment to the motion shall not be in order, nor 
        shall it be in order to move to reconsider the vote by 
        which the motion is agreed to or disagreed to.
            (B) Debate in the House of Representatives on the 
        resolution described in paragraph (2) of this 
        subsection shall be limited to not more than 2 hours, 
        which shall be divided equally between those favoring 
        and those opposing such resolution. A motion to further 
        limit debate shall not be debatable. It shall not be in 
        order to move to recommit a resolution or to move to 
        reconsider the vote by which such resolution was agreed 
        to or disagreed to.
            (C) Appeals from the decision of the Chair relating 
        to the application of the rules of the House of 
        Representatives to the procedures relating to a 
        resolution under this section shall be decided without 
        debate.
            (D) Except to the extent specifically provided in 
        preceding provisions of this subsection, consideration 
        in the House of Representatives of a resolution under 
        this subsection shall be governed by the rules of the 
        House of Representatives applicable to other 
        resolutions in similar circumstances.
            (7)(A) A motion in the Senate to proceed to the 
        consideration of a resolution under this section shall 
        not debatable. It shall not be in order to move to 
        reconsider the vote by which the motion is agreed to or 
        disagreed to.
            (B) Debate in the Senate on the resolution 
        described in paragraph (2) of this subsection, and all 
        debatable motions and appeals in connection therewith, 
        shall be limited to not more than 2 hours. The time 
        shall be equally divided between, and controlled by, 
        the mover and the manager of the resolution, except 
        that in the event the manager of the resolution is in 
        favor of any such motion or appeal, the time in 
        opposition thereto shall be controlled by the minority 
        leader or his designee. Such leaders, or either of 
        them, may, from time under their control on the passage 
        of a resolution, allot additional time to any Senator 
        during the consideration of any debatable motion or 
        appeal.
            (C) A motion in the Senate to further limit debate 
        is not debatable. A motion to recommit a resolution is

          TITLE VI--NATO ENLARGEMENT FACILITATION ACT OF 1996

SEC. 601. SHORT TITLE.

      This title may be cited as the ``NATO Enlargement 
Facilitation Act of 1996''.

SEC. 602. FINDINGS.

      The Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) Since 1949, the North Atlantic Treaty 
        Organization (NATO) has played an essential role in 
        guaranteeing the security, freedom, and prosperity of 
        the United States and its partners in the Alliance.
            (2) The NATO Alliance is, and has been since its 
        inception, purely defensive in character, and it poses 
        no threat to any nation. The enlargement of the NATO 
        Alliance to include as full and equal members emerging 
        democracies in Central and Eastern Europe will serve to 
        reinforce stability and security in Europe by fostering 
        their integration into the structures which have 
        created and sustained peace in Europe since 1945. Their 
        admission into NATO will not threaten any nation. 
        America's security, freedom, and prosperity remain 
        linked to the security of the countries of Europe.
            (3) The sustained commitment of the member 
        countries of NATO to a mutual defense has made possible 
        the democratic transformation of Central and Eastern 
        Europe. Members of the Alliance can and should play a 
        critical role in addressing the security challenges of 
        the post-Cold War era and in creating the stable 
        environment needed for those emerging democracies in 
        Central and Eastern Europe to successfully complete 
        political and economic transformation.
            (4) The United States continues to regard the 
        political independence and territorial integrity of all 
        emerging democracies in Central and Eastern Europe as 
        vital to European peace and security.
            (5) The active involvement by the countries of 
        Central and Eastern Europe has made the Partnership for 
        Peace program an important forum to foster cooperation 
        between NATO and those countries seeking NATO 
        membership.
            (6) NATO has enlarged its membership on 3 different 
        occasions since 1949.
            (7) Congress supports the admission of qualified 
        new members to NATO and the European Union at an early 
        date and has sought to facilitate the admission of 
        qualified new members into NATO.
            (8) Lasting security and stability in Europe 
        requires not only the military integration of emerging 
        democracies in Central and Eastern Europe into existing 
        European structures, but also the eventual economic and 
        political integration of these countries into existing 
        European structures.
            (9) As new members of NATO assume the 
        responsibilities of Alliance membership, the costs of 
        maintaining stability in Europe should be shared more 
        widely. Facilitation of the enlargement process will 
        require current members of NATO, and the United States 
        in particular, to demonstrate the political will needed 
        to build on successful ongoing programs such as the 
        Warsaw Initiative and the Partnership for Peace by 
        making available the resources necessary to supplement 
        efforts prospective new members are themselves 
        undertaking.
            (10) New members will be full members of the 
        Alliance, enjoying all rights and assuming all the 
        obligations under the North Atlantic Treaty, signed at 
        Washington on April 4, 1949 (hereafter in this Act 
        referred to as the ``Washington Treaty'').
            (11) In order to assist emerging democracies in 
        Central and Eastern Europe that have expressed interest 
        in joining NATO to be prepared to assume the 
        responsibilities of NATO membership, the United States 
        should encourage and support efforts by such countries 
        to develop force structures and force modernization 
        priorities that will enable such countries to 
        contribute to the full range of NATO missions, 
        including, most importantly, territorial defense of the 
        Alliance.
            (12) Cooperative regional peacekeeping initiatives 
        involving emerging democracies in Central and Eastern 
        Europe that have expressed interest in joining NATO, 
        such as the Baltic Peacekeeping Battalion, the Polish-
        Lithuanian Joint Peacekeeping Force, and the Polish-
        Ukrainian Peacekeeping Force, can make an important 
        contribution to European peace and security and 
        international peacekeeping efforts, can assist those 
        countries preparing to assume the responsibilities of 
        possible NATO membership, and accordingly should 
        receive appropriate support from the United States.
            (13) NATO remains the only multilateral security 
        organization capable of conducting effective military 
        operations and preserving security and stability of the 
        Euro-Atlantic region.
            (14) NATO is an important diplomatic forum and has 
        played a positive role in defusing tensions between 
        members of the Alliance and, as a result, no military 
        action has occurred between two Alliance member states 
        since the inception of NATO in 1949.
            (15) The admission to NATO of emerging democracies 
        in Central and Eastern Europe which are found to be in 
        a position to further the principles of the Washington 
        Treaty would contribute to international peace and 
        enhance the security of the region. Countries which 
        have become democracies and established market 
        economies, which practice good neighborly relations, 
        and which have established effective democratic 
        civilian control over their defense establishments and 
        attained a degree of interoperability with NATO, should 
        be evaluated for their potential to further the 
        principles of the Washington Treaty.
            (16) Democratic civilian control of defense forces 
        is an essential element in the process of preparation 
        for those states interested in possible NATO 
        membership.
            (17) Protection and promotion of fundamental 
        freedoms and human rights is an integral aspect of 
        genuine security, and in evaluating requests for 
        membership in NATO, the human rights records of the 
        emerging democracies in Central and Eastern Europe 
        should be evaluated according to their commitments to 
        fulfill in good faith the human rights obligations of 
        the Charter of the United Nations, the principles of 
        the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, and the 
        Helsinki Final Act.
            (18) A number of Central and Eastern European 
        countries have expressed interest in NATO membership, 
        and have taken concrete steps to demonstrate this 
        commitment, including their participation in 
        Partnership for Peace activities.
            (19) The Caucasus region remains important 
        geographically and politically to the future security 
        of Central Europe. As NATO proceeds with the process of 
        enlargement, the United States and NATO should continue 
        to examine means to strengthen the sovereignty and 
        enhance the security of United Nations recognized 
        countries in that region.
            (20) In recognition that not all countries which 
        have requested membership in NATO will necessarily 
        qualify at the same pace, the accession date for each 
        new member will vary.
            (21) The provision of additional NATO transition 
        assistance should include those emerging democracies 
        most ready for closer ties with NATO and should be 
        designed to assist other countries meeting specified 
        criteria of eligibility to move forward toward eventual 
        NATO membership.
            (22) The Congress of the United States finds in 
        particular that Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic 
        have made significant progress toward achieving the 
        criteria set forth in section 203(d)(3) of the NATO 
        Participation Act of 1994 and should be eligible for 
        the additional assistance described in this Act.
            (23) The evaluation of future membership in NATO 
        for emerging democracies in Central and Eastern Europe 
        should be based on the progress of those nations in 
        meeting criteria for NATO membership, which require 
        enhancement of NATO's security and the approval of all 
        NATO members.
            (24) The process of NATO enlargement entails the 
        consensus agreement of the governments of all 16 NATO 
        members and ratification in accordance with their 
        constitutional procedures.
            (25) Some NATO members, such as Spain and Norway, 
        do not allow the deployment of nuclear weapons on their 
        territory although they are accorded the full 
        collective security guarantees provided by Article 5 of 
        the Washington Treaty. There is no a priori requirement 
        for the stationing of nuclear weapons on the territory 
        of new NATO members, particularly in the current 
        security climate. However, NATO retains the right to 
        alter its security posture at any time as circumstances 
        warrant.

        post-Cold War world;
            (2) to actively assist the emerging democracies in 
        Central and Eastern Europe in their transition so that 
        such countries may eventually qualify for NATO 
        membership;
            (3) to support the enlargement of NATO in 
        recognition that enlargement will benefit the interests 
        of the United States and the Alliance and to consider 
        these benefits in any analysis of the costs of NATO 
        enlargement;

        Eastern Europe are fully aware of and capable of 
        assuming the costs and responsibilities of NATO 
        membership, including the obligation set forth in 
        Article 10 of the Washington Treaty that new members be 
        able to contribute to the security of the North 
        Atlantic area; and

economic stability and security in Slovakia, Estonia, Latvia,

            (1) the United States should continue and expand 
        its support for the full and active participation of 
        these countries in activities appropriate for 
        qualifying for NATO membership;
            (2) the United States Government should use all 
        diplomatic means available to press the European Union 
        to admit as soon as possible any country which 
        qualifies for membership;
            (3) the United States Government and the North 
        Atlantic Treaty Organization should continue and expand 
        their support for military exercises and peacekeeping 
        initiatives between and among these nations, nations of 
        the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and Russia; and
            (4) the process of enlarging NATO to include 
        emerging democracies in Central and Eastern Europe 
        should not be limited to consideration of admitting 
        Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Slovenia as

is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania have valid 
        historical security concerns that must be taken into 
        account by the United States; and
            (2) Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania should not be
