       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. 2944) making 
appropriations for the government of the District of Columbia 
and other activities chargeable in whole or in part against the 
revenues of said District for the fiscal year ending September 
30, 2002, and for other purposes, submit the following joint 
statement to the House and the Senate in explanation of the 
effect of the actions agreed upon by the managers and 
recommended in the accompanying conference report.
      The conference agreement on the District of Columbia 
Appropriations Act, 2002, incorporates some of the provisions 
of both the House and Senate versions of the bill. The language 
and allocations set forth in House Report 107-216 and Senate 
Report 107-85 should be complied with unless specifically 
addressed in the accompanying bill and statement of the 
managers to the contrary. The agreement agreed to herein, while 
repeating some report language for emphasis, does not negate 
the language reference above unless expressly provided. General 
provisions which are identical in the House and Senate passed 
versions of H.R. 2944 are unchanged by the conference agreement 
and are approved unless provided to the contrary herein.
      A summary chart appears later in this statement just 
before the explanations of the general provisions showing the 
Federal appropriations by account and the allocation of 
District funds by agency or office under each appropriation 
title showing the fiscal year 2001 appropriation, the fiscal 
year 2002 request, the House and Senate recommendations and the 
conference allowance.

                             Federal Funds

              Federal Payment for Resident Tuition Support

      The conference agreement includes language requiring the 
Federal payment for resident tuition support be deposited into 
a dedicated account with any interest accrued to be used on 
behalf of eligible District of Columbia residents. The 
conference action requires quarterly financial reports from the 
Chief Financial Officer on the use of resident tuition funds 
and limits administrative expenses to seven percent of the 
total amount appropriated herein rather than allowing 
administrative expenses to be charged again on carryover 
amounts.
      The conferees recognize and appreciate the important role 
of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in 
educating citizens of the District of Columbia. Therefore, 
conferees urge the prompt expansion of the District of 
Columbia's Tuition Assistance Grant Program to make those 
students attending HBCUs outside of the District of Columbia, 
Maryland and Virginia eligible for grant assistance.

        Federal Payment for Incentives for Adoption of Children

      The conference agreement has approved extending the 
availability until September 30, 2002 of the $5,000,000 
approved in Public Law 106-113 dated November 29, 1999 for this 
program. The conference action provides that $1,000,000 be used 
for the establishment of a scholarship fund for post high 
school education and training for District children of adoptive 
families as well as for District children without parents due 
to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. The language also 
allows the funds to be used to fund programs included in 
amendments made by title 22 of the District's FY 2002 Budget 
Support Act to the Adoption Support Fund.
      The conferees encourage the Mayor to use funds made 
available to create incentives to promote the adoption of 
children in the District of Columbia foster care system, 
including $2,000,000 for attorney fees and home studies, 
$1,000,000 for establishment of a private adoptive family

education and support to adoptive families, and $1,000,000 for 
adoption incentives and support for children with special

administer these programs or get involved in any way with the 
programs except to ensure that the funds are disbursed promptly 
and correctly to the proper organizations.
      The conferees encourage the District's Chief Financial 
Officer to credit amounts reimbursed by the U.S. Marshals 
Service for District of Columbia inmates housed in private 
contract facilities directly to the District of Columbia 
Department of Corrections for payment to a contract bed space 
service provider.

    Federal Payment to the District of Columbia Corrections Trustee 
                               Operations

      Appropriates $30,200,000 instead of $32,700,000 as 
proposed by the House and Senate. The reduction consists of 
$2,000,000 from building renovations and $500,000 from funds 
requested for the closing of the sewage treatment plant and the 
removal of underground storage tanks at the Lorton Correctional 
Complex.

           federal payment to the district of columbia courts

      Appropriates $112,180,000 instead of $111,238,000 as 
proposed by the House and $140,181,000 as proposed by the 
Senate and allocates $66,091,000 as proposed by the House for 
Superior Court instead of $72,694,000 as proposed by the 
Senate, $31,594,000 for the Court System instead of $31,149,000 
as proposed by the House and $31,634,000 as proposed by the 
Senate, and $6,492,000 for capital improvements instead of 
$5,995,000 as proposed by the House and $27,850,000 as proposed 
by the Senate. The conference action deletes the proviso 
proposed by the House that would have required approval by the 
Committees for the purchase, installation and operation of an 
Integrated Justice Information System. The conference action 
deletes language proposed by the Senate that would have allowed 
the District of Columbia Courts to reallocate not more than 
$1,000,000 of funds provided under this heading among the items 
and entities funded under such heading. The conference action 
transfers the new District of Columbia Family Court to a 
separate appropriation heading as proposed by the House instead 
of as a proviso under this heading as proposed by the Senate.

                       administrative provisions

      The conference agreement amends D.C. Official Code, sec. 
11-1722(a) to remove the Director of Social Services in the 
Superior Court from direct supervision of the Executive Officer 
as proposed by the Senate.
      The conference agreement amends D.C. Official Code, sec. 
11-1723(a)(3) to remove the internal auditing of the accounts 
of the courts from the fiscal officer as proposed by the 
Senate.
      Crime victims compensation.--The conference agreement 
amends D.C. Official Code, sec. 4-515(d) and (e) concerning the 
Victims of Violent Crime Compensation Fund to allow 50 percent 
of the estimated balance to be used for direct compensation 
payments to crime victims through the Fund and the balance for 
outreach activities designed to increase the number of crime 
victims who apply for such direct compensation payments. The 
language also provides that not more than 5 percent of the 
total amount of monies in the Fund may be used to pay 
administrative costs.
      The District's Chief Financial Officer is directed to 
certify that priority is given to crime victim assistance 
programs that provide assistance to victims of sexual assault, 
domestic violence, or child abuse including but not limited to 
abuse counseling, health and mental health services, child 
advocacy centers, emergency housing, emergency child care, 
transportation, hospital-based informational and referral 
services, and family support. The conferees recommend that the 
District government make funds available for victim assistance 
programs which are aimed at improving the intake, assessment, 
screening and investigation of reports of child abuse and 
neglect and domestic violence.
      The District's Chief Financial Officer is directed to 
certify that the program funds awarded to grantees under this 
program are used to directly serve victims of crime.
      The conference agreement amends D.C. Official Code, sec. 
11-2604 to increase the hourly rate for attorneys for indigents 
appointed under the Criminal Justice Act (CJA) from $50 per 
hour to $65 per hour and increases the rate paid to 
investigators from $10 per hour to $25 per hour. The rates are 
effective for cases initiated on or after March 1, 2002.
      Quality of CJA legal services.--The conferees strongly 
urge the D. C. Superior Court to evaluate the quality of the 
legal services rendered by lawyers appointed under the Criminal 
Justice Act to handle juvenile delinquency cases. The Court is 
urged to take immediate, affirmative steps to ensure that 
lawyers who lack the requisite training, experience and skill 
are not appointed to delinquency cases. The conferees also urge 
the Court to adopt a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) 
requirement for all lawyers rendering legal services under the 
Criminal Justice Act. Such training is critical to improving 
the quality of legal representation provided to indigent people 
in the District of Columbia and will result in a more cost-
efficient system.

                 federal payments for family court act

      Appropriates $24,016,000 for carrying out the District of 
Columbia Family Court Act of 2001 instead of $23,316,000 as 
proposed by the House and $23,315,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The increase of $700,000 includes $200,000 for the 
completion of a plan by the Mayor on integrating the computer 
systems of the District of Columbia government with the Family 
Court of the Superior Court and $500,000 to be used by the 
Child and Family Services Agency for activities authorized by 
the District of Columbia Family Court Act of 2001.

            defender services in district of columbia courts

      Appropriates $34,311,000 as proposed by the House instead 
of $39,311,000 as proposed by the Senate and makes conforming 
technical changes. The reduction of $5,000,000 below the Senate 
recommendation reflects conference action that requires the use 
of unobligated balances to fund the rate increase for 
investigators and for attorneys for indigents appointed under 
the Criminal Justice Act. The conference agreement also 
requires that $4,685,500 for design and construction expenses 
of the courthouse at 451 Indiana Avenue, N.W., be paid from 
unobligated balances in this account.

 federal payment to the court services and offender supervision agency 
                      for the district of columbia

                     (inlcuding transfer of funds)

      The conference agreement allows $2,000 for official 
receptions related to the offender and defendant support 
programs instead of $1,500 proposed by the House and $5,000 
proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement restores the 
proviso requiring the Director to keep accurate and detailed 
records of the acceptance and use of any gift or donation as 
proposed by the House and makes conforming technical changes. 
The conference action includes language proposed by the Senate 
that allows the Director flexibility in acquiring an 
appropriate site to house or supervise offenders and defendants 
rather than limiting the Director to a specific site as 
proposed in the budget request and proposed by the House. In 
any event the site is to be acquired by March 31, 2002.

       federal payment to the children's national medical center

      Appropriates $5,500,000 to the Children's National 
Medical Center of which $500,000 is for completion of a network

in underserved neighborhoods and communities in the District of 
Columbia and $5,000,000 is for capital and equipment 
improvements.

          st. coletta of greater washington expansion project

      Appropriates $2,000,000 to St. Coletta of Greater 
Washington, Inc. instead of $1,000,000 as proposed by the House 
for costs associated with the establishment of a day program 
and comprehensive case management services for mentally 
retarded and multiple handicapped adolescents and adults in the 
District of Columbia including property acquisition and 
construction.

            federal payment to faith and politics institute

      Appropriates $50,000 to the Faith and Politics Institute 
for grass roots-based racial sensitivity programs in the 
District of Columbia as proposed by the House.

    federal payment to the thurgood marshall academy charter school

      Appropriates $1,000,000 as proposed by the Senate to the 
Thurgood Marshall Academy Charter School to be used to acquire 
and renovate an educational facility in the Anacostia area of 
the District.

    federal payment to the george washington university center for 
                   excellence in municipal management

      Appropriates $250,000 to the George Washington University 
Center for Excellence in Municipal Management as proposed by 
the Senate to increase the enrollment of managers from the 
District of Columbia government.

                   court appointed special advocates

      Appropriates $250,000 to the District of Columbia Court 
Appointed Special Advocates Unit as proposed by the Senate to 
be used to expand the Unit's work in the Family Court of the 
District of Columbia Superior Court.

                        administrative provision

      The conference agreement allows $100,000 appropriated in 
the District of Columbia Appropriations Act, 2001, Public Law 
106-522 (114 Stat. 2441) to remain available until September 
30, 2002 for the Metropolitan Police Department to fund a youth 
safe haven police mini-station for mentoring high risk youth; 
$1,000,000 made available in such Act for the Washington 
Interfaith Network (114 Stat. 2444) to remain available until 
December 31, 2002 for reimbursement of costs incurred in 
carrying out preconstruction activities at the former Fort 
Dupont Dwellings and Additions, and $3,450,000 for Brownfield 
Remediation (114 Stat. 2445) to remain available until expended 
for environmental and infrastructure costs at Poplar Point as 
proposed by the Senate.

                     Congressional Research Service

      The conferees direct the Congressional Research Service 
to analyze the differences and similarities in municipal, state 
and national government, including funding, management, 
oversight, and the rights of citizens, in the District of 
Columbia and ten other comparable national capitals. The 
conferees request that the report be submitted to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations not later than March 31, 
2002.

                       District of Columbia Funds

                          division of expenses

      Provides that operating expenses for the District of 
Columbia for fiscal year 2002 shall not exceed $6,048,160,000 
of which $124,163,000 is from intra-District funds and 
$3,574,493,000 is from local funds instead of $6,043,881,000 of 
which $124,163,000 is from intra-District funds and 
$3,571,343,000 is from local funds as proposed by the House and 
$6,051,646,000 of which $124,163,000 is from intra-District 
funds and $3,553,300,000 is from local funds as proposed by the 
Senate. The changes in the amounts reflect actions taken by the 
conferees in the funding levels under the various appropriation 
headings.
      The conference agreement includes a proviso allowing the 
ceiling amount to be increased by proceeds of one-time 
transactions which are expended for emergency or unanticipated 
operating or capital needs and deletes the provision that would 
have allowed expenditures above the cap to generate additional 
revenues. The conferees encourage the Chief FinancialOfficer to 
reprioritize existing resources for this purpose.

                   Governmental Direction and Support

      Appropriates $286,138,000 including $229,421,000 from 
local funds, $38,809,000 in Federal funds and $17,908,000 from 
other funds instead of $285,359,000 including $229,271,000 from 
local funds, $38,809,000 from Federal funds and $17,279,000 
from other funds as proposed by the House and $307,117,000 
including $228,471,000 from local funds, $61,367,000 from 
Federal funds and $17,279,000 from other funds as proposed by 
the Senate.
      Office of the Mayor.--The conference agreement includes 
an increase of $200,000 in Federal funds appropriated earlier 
under Federal Payments for Family Court Act for a computer 
integration plan for Child and Family Social Services as 
proposed by the Senate.
      Recycled crumb rubber.--The conferees encourage the 
District government to use recycled crumb rubber from tires in 
environmentally responsible applications such as roads, 
playgrounds, bicycle paths, and parking lots. Last year in the 
United States alone 270 million tires were ``retired''. While 
it has been reported that 70 percent of the tires were 
beneficially utilized, some 30 percent went into landfills. 
Tires in landfills create problems that should be minimized or 
eliminated. New technology has now allowed tires to be recycled 
more economically, producing metals that are recycled and tire 
crumb that can be used in numerous applications that provide 
added benefits. Rubberized asphalt in road applications has 
been reported to last longer and provide lower noise levels. 
Mats made from recycled rubber have been known to provide a 
safer environment for children in playgrounds. These and other 
applications allow for environmentally responsible uses and 
minimize the number of tires that may be discarded.
      Office of the City Administrator.--The conference 
agreement includes an increase of $300,000 in Federal funds 
appropriated earlier in this Act for the Criminal Justice 
Coordinating Council of the District of Columbia as proposed by 
the House. The conferees encourage District officials to 
reprogram or transfer funds to augment this program in the 
event additional funds are required.
      Office of the Chief Technology Officer.--The conference 
agreement includes an increase of $400,000 in Federal funds 
appropriated earlier in this Act to manage a wireless pilot 
project to connect local and Federal law enforcement agencies 
in the region as proposed by the Senate instead of $500,000 as 
proposed by the House.
      Office of the Corporation Counsel.--The conference 
agreement includes $386,000 for activities related to the D.C. 
Antitrust Act of 1980, $10,000 for Antifraud activities related 
to section 820 of the D.C. Procurement Practices Act of 1985, 
and $233,000 for the Consumer Protection Fund established 
pursuant to section 1402 of the District of Columbia Budget 
Support Act for fiscal year 2001.
      Office of the Chief Financial Officer.--The conference 
agreement includes $50,000 for initial renovations at Eastern 
Market from Federal funds appropriated earlier in this Act.

                  Economic Development and Regulation

      The conference agreement includes the provisos proposed 
by the Senate requiring the Department of Consumer and 
Regulatory Affairs to use $50,000 of the receipts from the net 
proceeds from the contractor that handles the District's 
occupational and professional licensing to fund additional 
staff and equipment for the Rental Housing Administration. The 
conference agreement approves $293,000 from other funds 
resulting from the lapse of personnel vacancies, caused by 
transferring employees into NSO positions without filling the 
resultant vacancies, into the revolving 5-513 fund to be used 
to implement the provisions in D.C. Law 13-281, the Abatement 
and Condemnation of Nuisance Properties Omnibus Amendment Act 
of 2000, pertaining to the prevention of the demolition by 
neglect of historic properties. The conference agreement 
approves the proviso that requires 18 percent of the annual 
total amount in the 5-513 fund, up to $500,000, that is 
deposited into the 5-513 fund on an annual basis, be used to 
implement section 102 and other related sections of D.C. Law 
13-281. The conference agreement deletes the proviso concerning 
personnel matters and the filling of certain positions in the 
Department.
      Downtown Business Improvement Districts (BID).--The 
conferees have reviewed concerns expressed by businesses and 
business organizations in the District, as well as criticism 
expressed in the local press, concerning the Downtown BID's 
commitment to expand its mission into areas of regulation, 
planning, marketing, advocacy and economic development by way 
of the creation of affiliated entities, and its advocacy for 
legislative authority to expand its functions to include public 
space management and regulation.
      The Downtown BID and other BIDs in the District generate 
funding for operations and administration under the authority 
granted to it by legislation enacted by the Council of the 
District of Columbia and approved by Congress. Justification 
for delegating the authority to impose taxes, fees or liens on 
all commercial owners and tenants within the BID's boundaries 
arose out of the need to enhance the District's ability to 
maintain cleanliness and public safety within those boundaries. 
In fact, language exempting BIDs from taxes levied by the 
District of Columbia was initially placed in the fiscal year 
1999 District of Columbia Appropriations Act based on 
assurances that the BIDs' role would be limited to augmenting 
the services that the District government was providing in the 
areas of public safety, trash collection, street cleaning and 
``ambassadorial'' assistance. The proposal was for the 
businesses in the area to ``tax themselves'' and use those 
funds to provide a higher level of basic services in their 
area. On that basis, it seemed fair to allow the tax exemption. 
However, the intent was not to provide a tax exemption for 
economic development or activities other than those that would 
enhance the appearance and livability in the BID area.
      The House Committee took the initiative to investigate 
and respond to the concerns expressed by the business community 
to the expansion of the BID's mission as well as the various 
proposals for funding the operation and administration of such 
affiliate entities. As a result of the House Committee's 
discussions with Downtown BID Board members and staff members, 
the Downtown BID has informed its Board and other business 
organizations in the District that it will not move forward 
with the expansion of its core mission at this time, and that 
any expansion of its core mission, either within the BID or 
through affiliated entities, will not duplicate existing 
government functions that are currently funded with taxpayer 
dollars.
      The conferees are concerned about this situation and the 
considerable deviation from the BIDs' original mission as 
conveyed to Congress.

                       Public Safety and Justice

      Appropriates $633,853,000 including $594,803,000 from 
local funds, instead of $632,668,000 including $593,618,000 
from local funds as proposed by the Senate.
      Metropolitan Police Department.--The conference agreement 
provides $100,000 in Federal funds included in section 130 of 
the general provisions on the condition that the District 
government enacts into law a ban on the possession of tobacco 
products by minors as specified in section 132. The funds are 
to be used by the Department to enforce the ban.
      Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department.--The 
conference agreement includes $500,000 for the Fire and 
Emergency Medical Services Department to cover the costs of dry 
docking the fireboat as proposed by the House.
      Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.--The conference 
agreement includes $585,000 for the Chief Medical Examiner to 
help reduce backlogs of autopsies and case reports and to 
purchase toxicology and histology equipment as proposed by the 
House.
      The conference agreement retains the proviso enacting 
into law section 3703 of title XXXVII of the Fiscal Year 2002 
Budget Support Act of 2001 as proposed by the House and 
transfers the proviso relating to the District of Columbia 
Income and Franchise Tax Act of 1947 to section 103 of the 
general provisions.

                        Public Education System

      Appropriates $1,108,665,000 including $896,994,000 from 
local funds instead of $1,106,165,000 including $185,044,000 
from Federal funds as proposed by the House and $1,108,915,000 
including $187,794,000 from Federal funds as proposed by the 
Senate. The conference agreement allocates $400,000 for 
Enhancing and Actualizing Internationalism and Multiculturalism 
in the Academic Programs of the University of the District of 
Columbia and not less than $200,000 for Adult Education. The 
conference action allocates $1,277,500 for the Excel Institute 
Adult Education Program and requires that quarterly payments be 
made by the District's Chief Financial Officer. The conference 
action allocates funds for various programs as proposed by the 
Senate and retains the proviso that excludes the evaluation 
process for District of Columbia Public School employees as a 
negotiable item for collective bargaining purposes. The 
conference agreement deletes the proviso that would have 
changed the fiscal year for the District of Columbia Public 
Schools, District of Columbia Public Charter Schools and the 
University of the District of Columbia. The conference 
agreement extends the availability of $1,000,000 in local funds 
appropriated in Public Law 107-20 for the State Education 
Office for a census-type audit of the student enrollment of 
each District of Columbia Public School and each public charter 
school. The funds are to remain available until expended.
      Public Schools.--Allocates $813,042,000 including 
$661,124,000 from local funds and $144,630,000 from Federal 
funds for public schools instead of $810,542,000 including 
$144,630,000 from Federal funds as proposed by the House and 
$813,292,000 from local funds and $147,380,000 from Federal 
funds as proposed by the Senate. The increase above the House 
allowance includes $250,000 for the Failure Free Reading 
literacy program for non-readers and special education 
students, $250,000 for Lightspan, Inc. to implement the 
eduTec.com program, and $2,000,000 for the Voyager Expanded 
Learning Literacy Program in kindergarten and first grade. The 
$2,000,000 for the Voyager Program consists of Federal funds 
appropriated earlier in this Act and will allow the program to 
be implemented in kindergarten and first grade classrooms 
throughout the District's public school system. The program is 
a comprehensive literacy system that guarantees that all 
children entering the system in kindergarten will be reading at 
grade level or above by the third grade. The program includes a 
5 day reading certification for teachers, a student assessment 
system, and electronic data management system, an in-school 
reading program, after school and summer school interventions, 
and a home study program for parents.

                         Public Charter Schools

               Ensuring Independence With Accountability

      Public charter schools are innovations in public 
education designed to provide public education programs free 
from traditional public school bureaucracy. The conferees are 
proud to have played a partial role in their establishment in 
the District of Columbia. After four years, the District 
continues to offer one of the most vibrant and diverse charter 
school programs in the United States, enrolling more than 11% 
of the District's public school students.
      The conferees believe strongly that public charter 
schools must remain free of bureaucratic regulation. However, 
the conferees are also disturbed by press reports of fiscal 
irregularities and questionable management, reporting, 
discipline and academic practice at a few charter schools. 
Three schools were closed by their chartering authority for 
such reasons in the summer of 2001. Moreover, a number of 
schools will soon undergo the mandatory five-year review, to 
determine whether there is reason to revoke their charters. 
Obviously, charter school closings disrupt the instruction of 
their students. At the same time, chartering authorities cannot 
responsibly leave children in schools that are demonstrably 
failing or accept continued public funding of schools whose 
academic or financial performance is irresponsible.
      In authorizing the establishment of public charter 
schools in the District of Columbia, Congress has chosen to 
encourage responsible educational creativity by a system that 
grants freedom from regulation in exchange for accountability. 
Accountability, however, requires the full disclosure of 
information about school performance and finances, and active 
oversight by chartering authorities. While the chartering 
authorities must not tell charter schools how to achieve 
results or require the submission of unnecessary data, they are 
obligated to remain informed of school performance and to take 
action when a school fails to live up to the promises made in 
its charter application, fails to provide legally mandated 
information, or fails to conform to acceptable financial 
practice.
      The conferees therefore encourage the chartering 
authorities to act quickly when they become aware of problems 
at a public charter school that could potentially lead to 
revocation of its charter, to notify and offer support to the 
school in order to prevent the disruption to children's 
education of charter revocation and to protect public funds. 
The conferees do not encourage regulation or directives of the 
kind practiced by school system administrations, but do believe 
that the kind of accountability required of public schools in 
the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 
6301) must be asked of the District's public charter schools 
also.

                         Human Support Services

                     (including transfer of funds)

      The conference action makes conforming technical changes 
as to the amount available for the Health Care Safety Net 
Administration and deletes the proviso that would have 
prohibited the District from providing free government services 
such as water, sewer, solid waste disposal or collection, 
utilities, maintenance, repairs, or similar services to any 
legally constituted private nonprofit organization, if the 
District would not be qualified to receive reimbursement 
pursuant to the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act.
      The conference agreement inserts a proviso earmarking 
$7,500,000 to remain available until expended for the Addiction 
Recovery Fund to be used solely for the purpose of the Drug 
Treatment Choice Program.

                              Public Works

      The conference agreement inserts provisos earmarking 
funds for various programs as proposed by the Senate.

                         Receivership Programs

      Appropriates $403,868,000 including $250,515,000 from 
local funds, $134,339,000 from Federal funds instead of

proposed by the House and $403,868,000 including $134,839,000 
from Federal funds as proposed by the Senate. The conference 
agreement includes an increase of $500,000 in Federal funds 
appropriated earlier in this Act for the Family Court to hire 
additional staff to enhance coordination with the Family Court 
of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia as required 
by the Family Court Act.

                                Reserve

      The conference agreement provides a reserve of 
$120,000,000 as proposed by the Senate instead of $150,000,000 
as proposed by the House and deletes the proviso concerning the 
obligation of the reserve funds as proposed by the Senate.

                             Reserve Relief

      The conference agreement inserts a new heading and 
language that allows the District to spend $30,000,000 of the 
Reserve under certain conditions as proposed by the Senate.

                        Contingency Reserve Fund

      The conference agreement deletes this heading and 
language as proposed by the Senate.

                 Emergency and Contingency Reserve Fund

      The conference agreement inserts a new heading and 
language to allow deposits into the Contingency Reserve Fund 
beginning in fiscal year 2002 if certain conditions are met.

                    Repayment of Loans and Interest

      The conference agreement transfers the proviso for the 
Emergency Assistance Loan Guaranty Program to a separate 
heading.

                  Emergency Assistance Loan Guarantees

      The conference agreement inserts a new heading and 
transfers language from Repayment of Loans and Interest that 
provides indefinite appropriations of local funds to make 
payments related to the District of Columbia Emergency 
Assistance Act of 2001 that was enacted by the District 
government in response to the impact that the terrorist attack 
of September 11, 2001 had on local businesses. The loans will 
be made bylocal banks for a period up to 10 years and will be 
guaranteed by the District government. The conferees encourage the 
District's Chief Financial Officer to consult with the Office of 
Management and Budget in developing legislation for consideration by 
the Mayor and Council consistent with the purposes of the Federal 
Credit Reform Act. Such legislation would require the District to 
accurately estimate and budget for the potential liability from 
existing District of Columbia loan and loan guarantee programs and the 
potential liability from legislation proposed to establish such 
programs.

                 Emergency Planning and Security Costs

      Appropriates $16,058,000 in Federal funds appropriated 
earlier in this Act for emergency planning and security costs 
in the District of Columbia. The language agreed to by the 
conferees makes $12,652,000 of this amount available 
immediately to the District of Columbia Emergency Management 
Agency for planning, training and personnel costs required for 
development and implementation of the emergency operations plan 
for the District of Columbia.

                    Emergency Reserve Fund Transfer

      The conference action makes conforming technical changes 
and requires that not less than $33,254,000 will be deposited 
into the Emergency and Contingency Reserve Funds.

                       Enterprise and Other Funds

                       Water and Sewer Authority

      The conference agreement inserts an administrative 
provision that clarifies responsibilities concerning the water 
and sewer system and the Federally owned water main system as 
well as the installation of and access to meters.

                  Sports and Entertainment Commission

      The conference agreement retains language concerning the 
transfer of funds and changes the date for a payment from the 
Commission to the general fund from September 20, 2001 as 
proposed by the House to September 30, 2001. The increase of 
$500,000 is for the creation of the Kenilworth Regional Sports 
Complex. The funds are to be used by the Commission in 
coordination with the U.S. Soccer Foundation to cover 
environmental and infrastructure costs at Kenilworth Park in 
connection with the creation of the Kenilworth Regional Sports 
Complex.

                         D.C. Retirement Board

      The conference agreement retains the proviso requiring 
the Retirement Board to provide the Congress and the Council of 
the District of Columbia a quarterly report of the allocations 
of charges by fund and of expenditures of all funds.

                             Capital Outlay

      The conference agreement includes language proposed by 
the Senate concerning the requirement for a plan for the 
development of census tract 68.04 south of East Capitol Street, 
S.E., and the housing of any misdemeanants, felons, ex-
offenders, or persons awaiting trial within the District of 
Columbia as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement 
includes language that none of the conditions set forth in this 
paragraph shall interfere with the current operations of any 
Federal agency.
