       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).

            (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

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 options:
                    (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.

        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 continuing through the end of the Cold 
        War; and
            (4) expresses appreciation for the ongoing efforts 
        of the Office of Naval Research to support 
        oceanographic and scientific research and the 
        development of researchers in those fields, to ensure

fiscal year, the Secretary of Defense shall submit to Congress 
a report on the results of the monitoring performed under the

    (a) Requirement for New Methodology.--The Secretary of the 
Army shall develop a new methodology for preparing budget 
requests for operation and maintenance for the Army that can be

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.

areas:
            (A) The grade structure authorized for field-grade

            (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

            (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

SEC. 556. COMMEMORATION OF THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE UNIFORM 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.

subject to the requirements and limitations of congressional

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

that begin on or after that date. No benefit may be paid under 
section 1413 of title 10, United States Code, to any person by 
reason of the amendment made by subsection (a) for any period 
before that date.

        program under the Program for Persons with Disabilities 
        and the Individual Case Management Program for Persons 
        with Disabilities; and

        for health care services for disabled dependents of 
        members of the Armed Forces on active duty under 
        existing military health care programs has caused 
        increased enrollment of such dependents in medicaid 
        programs.
    (2) Not later than April 16, 2001, the Comptroller General 
shall submit to Congress a report on the results of the study

present value (as of October 1, 2002) of future benefits 
payable from the Fund that are attributable to service in the 
uniformed services performed before October 1, 2002. That 
amount is the original unfunded liability of the Fund. The 
Board shall determine the period of time over which the 
original unfunded liability should be liquidated and shall 
determine an amortization schedule for the liquidation of such 
liability over that period. Contributions to the Fund for the 
liquidation of the original unfunded liability in accordance 
with such schedule shall be made as provided in section 1116(b) 
of this title.

title. The President shall include not less than the full 
amount so determined in the budget transmitted to Congress for 
that fiscal year under section 1105 of title 31. The President 
may comment and make recommendations concerning any such

change in benefits under the Department of Defense retiree 
health care programs for medicare-eligible beneficiaries that 
has been made since the last such valuation and such change in

amortization of the cumulative gain or loss to the Fund created 
by such change in assumptions and any previous such changes in

SEC. 802. MULTIYEAR SERVICES CONTRACTS.

    (a) In General.--(1) Chapter 137 of title 10, United States 
Code, is amended by inserting after section 2306b the 
following:

``Sec. 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
            ``(3) the use of such a contract will promote the 
        best interests of 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.
            ``(2) Maintenance or modification of aircraft, 
        ships, vehicles, and other highly complex military 
        equipment.
            ``(3) Specialized training necessitating high 
        quality instructor skills (for example, pilot and air 
        crew members; foreign language training).
            ``(4) Base services (for example, ground 
        maintenance; in-plane refueling; bus transportation; 
        refuse collection and disposal).
    ``(c) Applicable Principles.--In entering into multiyear 
contracts 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 theunamortized 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 contract for services until 10 days after the date 
on which notice of 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:
            ``(A) The Committee on Armed Services and the 
        Committee on Appropriations of the Senate.
            ``(B) The Committee on Armed Services and the 
        Committee on Appropriations of the House of 
        Representatives.
    ``(e) Cancellation or Termination for Insufficient Funding 
After First Year.--In the event that funds are not made 
available for the continuation of a multiyear contract for 
services into a subsequent fiscal year, the contract shall be 
canceled or terminated, and the costs of cancellation or 
termination may be paid from--
            ``(1) appropriations originally available for the 
        performance of the contract concerned;
            ``(2) appropriations currently available for 
        procurement of the type of services concerned, and not 
        otherwise obligated; or
            ``(3) funds appropriated for those payments.
    ``(f) Multiyear Contract Defined.--For the purposes of this 
section, 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.''.
    (2) The table of sections at the beginning of such chapter 
is amended by inserting after the item relating to section

United States Code, is amended by striking ``or services''.
    (d) Applicability.--Section 2306c of title 10, United 
States Code (as added by subsection (a)), shall apply with 
respect to contracts for which solicitations of offers are 
issued after the date of the enactment of this Act.
