SEC. 4207. NUCLEAR TEST BAN READINESS PROGRAM.

  (a) Findings.--The Congress makes the following findings:
          (1) On September 17, 1987, the United States and the 
        Soviet Union announced that they would resume full-
        scale, stage-by-stage negotiations on issues relating 
        to nuclear testing, including further intermediate 
        limitations on nuclear testing leading to the ultimate 
        objective of a comprehensive nuclear test ban.
          (2) It was agreed that the first step in these 
        negotiations would be to reach agreement on 
        verification measures that will make possible the 
        ratification of the Threshold Test Ban Treaty of 1974 
        and the Peaceful Nuclear Explosions Treaty of 1976.
          (3) To achieve the agreement on verification 
        measures, the United States and the Soviet Union have 
        agreed to design and conduct a Joint Verification 
        Experiment at the test sites of each country during the 
        summer of 1988.
          (4) At the Moscow summit in May 1988, President 
        Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev reaffirmed their 
        commitment to negotiations on ``effective verification 
        measures which will make it possible to ratify the 
        Threshold Test Ban Treaty of 1974 and Peaceful Nuclear 
        Explosions Treaty of 1976, and proceed to negotiating 
        further intermediate limitations on nuclear testing 
        leading to the ultimate objective of the complete 
        cessation of nuclear testing as part of an effective 
        disarmament process''.
  (b) Establishment of Program.--The Secretary of Energy shall 
establish and support a program to assure that the United 
States is in a position to maintain the reliability, safety, 
and continued deterrent effect of its stockpile of existing 
nuclear weapons designs in the event that a low-threshold or 
comprehensive ban on nuclear explosives testing is negotiated 
and ratified within the framework agreed to by the United 
States and the Soviet Union.
  (c) Purposes of Program.--The purposes of the program under 
subsection (b) shall be the following:
          (1) To assure that the United States maintains a 
        vigorous program of stockpile inspection and non-
        explosive testing so that, if a low-threshold or 
        comprehensive test ban is entered into, the United 
        States remains able to detect and identify potential 
        problems in stockpile reliability and safety in 
        existing designs of nuclear weapons.
          (2) To assure that the specific materials, 
        components, processes, and personnel needed for the 
        remanufacture of existing nuclear weapons or the 
        substitution of alternative nuclear warheads are 
        available to support such remanufacture or substitution 
        if such action becomes necessary in order to satisfy 
        reliability and safety requirements under a low-
        threshold or comprehensive test ban agreement.
          (3) To assure that a vigorous program of research in 
        areas related to nuclear weapons science and 
        engineering is supported so that, if a low-threshold or 
        comprehensive test ban agreement is entered into, the 
        United States is able to maintain a base of technical 
        knowledge about nuclear weapons design and nuclear 
        weapons effects.
  (d) Conduct of Program.--The Secretary of Energy shall carry 
out the program provided for in subsection (b). The program 
shall be carried out with the participation of representatives 
of the Department of Defense, the nuclear weapons production 
facilities, and the national nuclear weapons laboratories.
  (e) Annual Report.--The Secretary of Energy shall submit to 
Congress each year an unclassified report (with a classified 
annex as necessary) that describes the progress made to the 
date of the report in achieving the purposes of the program 
required to be established under subsection (b).

    (d) Waiver Authority.--The Secretary of Defense may waive 
the limitation in subsection (a) with respect to the 
procurement of an item listed in that subsection if the 
Secretary determines in writing that any of the following 
apply:
            [(1) Application of the limitation would cause 
        unreasonable costs or delays to be incurred.
            [(2) United States producers of the item would not 
        be jeopardized by competition from a foreign country, 
        and that country does not discriminate against defense 
        items produced in the United States to a greater degree 
        than the United States discriminates against defense 
        items produced in that country.
            [(3) Application of the limitation would impede 
        cooperative programs entered into between the 
        Department of Defense and a foreign country, or would 
        impede the reciprocal procurement of defense items 
        under a memorandum of understanding providing for 
        reciprocal procurement of defense items that is entered 
        into under section 2531 of this title, and that country 
        does not discriminate against defense items produced in 
        the United States to a greater degree than the United 
        States discriminates against defense items produced in 
        that country.]
            (1) The Department of Defense's need for the item 
        is of such an unusual and compelling urgency that the 
        United States would be seriously injured unless the 
        Department is permitted to procure the item from 
        sources outside the United States.
            [(4)] (2) Satisfactory quality items manufactured 
        by an entity that is part of the national technology 
        and industrial base (as defined in section 2500(1) of 
        this title) are not available.
            [(5)] (3) Application of the limitation would 
        result in the existence of only one source for the item 
        that is an entity that is part of the national 
        technology and industrial base (as defined in section 
        2500(1) of this title). This exception shall not apply 
        to items determined to be critical by the Secretary of 
        Defense under section 812 of the National Defense 
        Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2004.
            [(6) The procurement is for an amount less than the 
        simplified acquisition threshold and simplified 
        purchase procedures are being used.
            [(7) Application of the limitation is not in the 
        national security interests of the United States.
            [(8) Application of the limitation would adversely 
        affect a United States company.]

            [(A)] (i) shall, concurrently with making a 
        determination under paragraph (1) that a species is an 
        endangered species or a threatened species, designate 
        any habitat of such species which is then considered to 
        be critical habitat; and
            [(B)] (ii) may, from time-to-time thereafter as 
        appropriate, revise such designation.
    (B)(i) The Secretary shall not designate as critical 
habitat any lands or other geographical areas owned or 
controlled by the Department of Defense, or designated for its 
use, that are subject to an integrated natural resources 
management plan prepared under section 101 of the Sikes Act (16 
U.S.C. 670a), if the Secretary determines that such plan 
addresses special management considerations or protection (as 
those terms are used in section 3(5)(A)(i)).
    (ii) Nothing in this paragraph affects the requirement to 
consult under section 7(a)(2) with respect to an agency action 
(as that term is defined in that section).

    (2) The Secretary shall designate critical habitat, and 
make revisions thereto, under subsection (a)(3) on the basis of 
the best scientific data available and after taking into 
consideration the economic impact, the impact on national 
security, and any other relevant impact, of specifying any 
particular area as critical habitat. The Secretary may exclude 
any area from critical habitat if he determines that the 
benefits of such exclusion outweight the benefits of specifying 
such area as part of the critical habitat, unless he 
determines, based on the best scientific and commercial data 
available, that the failure to designate such area as critical 
habitat will result in the extinction of the species concerned.

 SECTION 521 OF THE NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 
                                  1996

SEC. 521. AWARD OF PURPLE HEART TO PERSONS WOUNDED WHILE HELD AS 
                    PRISONERS OF WAR BEFORE APRIL 25, 1962.

    (a) * * *
    [(b) Standards for Award.--An award of the Purple Heart 
under subsection (a) shall be made in accordance with the 
standards in effect on the date of the enactment of this Act 
for the award of the Purple Heart to persons wounded on or 
after April 25, 1962.]
    (b) Standards and Procedures for Award.--In determining 
whether a former prisoner of war is eligible for the award of 
the Purple Heart under subsection (a), the Secretary concerned 
shall apply the following procedures:
            (1) The standard to be used by the Secretary 
        concerned for awarding the Purple Heart under this 
        section shall be to award the Purple Heart in any case 
        in which a prisoner of war (A) was wounded while in 
        captivity, or (B) while in captivity was subjected to 
        systematic and prolonged deprivation of food, medical 
        treatment, and other forms of deprivation or 
        mistreatment likely to have prolonged aftereffects on 
        the individual concerned.
            (2) When a former prisoner of war applies for the 
        Purple Heart under subsection (a), the Secretary 
        concerned may request the former prisoner of war to 
        provide any documentation that the Secretary would 
        otherwise require, but failure of the former prisoner 
        of war to provide such documentation shall not by 
        itself be a disqualification for award of the Purple 
        Heart.
            (3) The Secretary concerned shall inform the former 
        prisoner of war that historical information as to the 
        prison camp or other circumstances in which the former 
        prisoner of war was held captive and other information 
        as to the circumstances of the former prisoner of war's 
        captivity may be considered by the Secretary in 
        evaluating the application for the award of the Purple 
        Heart and that the former prisoner of war may submit 
        such information.
            (4) The Secretary concerned shall provide 
        assistance to the applicant for the Purple Heart in 
        obtaining information referred to in paragraph (3).
            (5) The Secretary shall review a completed 
        application under this section based upon the totality 
        of the evidence presented and shall take into account 
        the length of time between the period during which the 
        applicant was held as a prisoner of war and the date of 
        the application.
            (6) In considering an application under this 
        section, the Secretary shall take into account the 
        length of time that the applicant was held in 
        captivity, which while not in itself establishing 
        entitlement of the applicant to award of the Purple 
        Heart, can and should be a factor in determining 
        whether a former prisoner of war was likely to have 
        been wounded, starved, or denied medical treatment to 
        the extent likely to have prolonged aftereffects on the 
        individual concerned.

this section is exercised in collaboration with, and in a 
manner that ensures the participation of, employee 
representatives in the planning, development, and 
implementation of any human resources management system or 
adjustments to such system under this section, the Secretary 
and the Director shall provide for the following:
            (A) The Secretary and the Director shall, with 
        respect to any proposed system or adjustment--
                    (i) provide to the employee representatives 
                representing any employees who might be 
                affected a written description of the proposed 
                system or adjustment (including the reasons why 
                it is considered necessary);
                    (ii) give such representatives at least 30 
                calendar days (unless extraordinary 
                circumstances require earlier action) to review 
                and make recommendations with respect to the 
                proposal; and
                    (iii) give any recommendations received 
                from such representatives under clause (ii) 
                full and fair consideration in deciding whether 
                or how to proceed with the proposal.
            (B) Following receipt of recommendations, if any, 
        from such employee representatives with respect to a 
        proposal described in subparagraph (A), the Secretary 
        and the Director shall accept such modifications to the 
        proposal in response to the recommendations as they 
        determine advisable and shall, with respect to any 
        parts of the proposal as to which they have not 
        accepted the recommendations--
                    (i) notify Congress of those parts of the 
                proposal, together with the recommendations of 
                the employee representatives;
                    (ii) meet and confer for not less than 30 
                calendar days with the employee 
                representatives, in order to attempt to reach 
                agreement on whether or how to proceed with 
                those parts of the proposal; and
                    (iii) at the Secretary's option, or if 
                requested by a majority of the employee 
                representatives participating, use the services 
                of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation 
                Service during such meet and confer period to 
                facilitate the process of attempting to reach 
                agreement.
            (C)(i) Any part of the proposal as to which the 
        representatives do not make a recommendation, or as to 
        which the recommendations are accepted by the Secretary 
        and the Director, may be implemented immediately.
            (ii) With respect to any parts of the proposal as 
        to which recommendations have been made but not 
        accepted by the Secretary and the Director, at any time 
        after 30 calendar days have elapsed since the 
        initiation of the congressional notification, 
        consultation, and mediation procedures set forth in 
        subparagraph (B), if the Secretary, in his discretion, 
        determines that further consultation and mediation is 
        unlikely to produce agreement, the Secretary may 
        implement any or all of such parts (including any 
        modifications made in response to the recommendations 
        as the Secretary determines advisable), but only after 
        30 days have elapsed after notifying Congress of the 
        decision to implement the part or parts involved (as so 
        modified, if applicable).
            (iii) The Secretary shall notify Congress promptly 
        of the implementation of any part of the proposal and 
        shall furnish with such notice an explanation of the 
        proposal, any changes made to the proposal as a result 
        of recommendations from the employee representatives, 
        and of the reasons why implementation is appropriate 
        under this subparagraph.
            (D) If a proposal described in subparagraph (A) is 
        implemented, the Secretary and the Director shall--
                    (i) develop a method for the employee 
                representatives to participate in any further 
                planning or development which might become 
                necessary; and
                    (ii) give the employee representatives 
                adequate access to information to make that 
                participation productive.
    (2) The Secretary may, at the Secretary's discretion, 
engage in any and all collaboration activities described in 
this subsection at an organizational level above the level of 
exclusive recognition.
    (3) In the case of any employees who are not within a unit 
with respect to which a labor organization is accorded 
exclusive recognition, the Secretary and the Director may 
develop procedures for representation by any appropriate 
organization which represents a substantial percentage of those 
employees or, if none, in such other manner as may be 
appropriate, consistent with the purposes of this subsection.
    (f) Provisions Regarding National Level Bargaining.--(1) 
Any human resources management system implemented or modified 
under this chapter may include employees of the Department of 
Defense from any bargaining unit with respect to which a labor 
organization has been accorded exclusive recognition under 
chapter 71 of this title.
    (2) For any bargaining unit so included under paragraph 
(1), the Secretary may bargain at an organizational level above 
the level of exclusive recognition. Any such bargaining shall--
            (A) be binding on all subordinate bargaining units 
        at the level of recognition and their exclusive 
        representatives, and the Department of Defense and its 
        subcomponents, without regard to levels of recognition;
            (B) supersede all other collective bargaining 
        agreements, including collective bargaining agreements 
        negotiated with an exclusive representative at the 
        level of recognition, except as otherwise determined by 
        the Secretary;
            (C) not be subject to further negotiations for any 
        purpose, including bargaining at the level of 
        recognition, except as provided for by the Secretary; 
        and
            (D) except as otherwise specified in this chapter, 
        not be subject to review or to statutory third-party 
        dispute resolution procedures outside the Department of 
        Defense.
    (3) The National Guard Bureau and the Army and Air Force 
National Guard are excluded from coverage under this 
subsection.
    (4) Any bargaining completed pursuant to this subsection 
with a labor organization not otherwise having national 
consultation rights with the Department of Defense or its 
subcomponents shall not create any obligation on the Department 
of Defense or its subcomponents to confer national consultation 
rights on such a labor organization.
    (g) Provisions Relating to Appellate Procedures.--(1) The 
Secretary shall--
            (A) establish an appeals process that provides that 
        employees of the Department of Defense are entitled to 
        fair treatment in any appeals that they bring in 
        decisions relating to their employment; and
            (B) in prescribing regulations for any such appeals 
        process--
                    (i) ensure that employees of the Department 
                of Defense are afforded the protections of due 
                process; and
                    (ii) toward that end, be required to 
                consult with the Merit Systems Protection Board 
                before issuing any such regulations.
    (2) Any regulations establishing the appeals process 
required by paragraph (1) that relate to any matters within the 
purview of chapter 77 shall--
            (A) provide for an independent review panel, 
        appointed by the President, which shall not include the 
        Secretary or the Deputy Secretary of Defense or any of 
        their subordinates;
            (B) be issued only after--
                    (i) notification to the appropriate 
                committees of Congress; and
                    (ii) consultation with the Merit Systems 
                Protection Board and the Equal Employment 
                Opportunity Commission;
            (C) ensure the availability of procedures that--
                    (i) are consistent with requirements of due 
                process; and
                    (ii) provide, to the maximum extent 
                practicable, for the expeditious handling of 
                any matters involving the Department of 
                Defense; and
            (D) modify procedures under chapter 77 only insofar 
        as such modifications are designed to further the fair, 
        efficient, and expeditious resolution of matters 
        involving the employees of the Department of Defense.
    (h) Provisions Related to Separation and Retirement 
Incentives.--(1) The Secretary may establish a program within 
the Department of Defense under which employees may be eligible 
for early retirement, offered separation incentive pay to 
separate from service voluntarily, or both. This authority may 
be used to reduce the number of personnel employed by the 
Department of Defense or to restructure the workforce to meet 
mission objectives without reducing the overall number of 
personnel. This authority is in addition to, and 
notwithstanding, any other authorities established by law or 
regulation for such programs.
    (2) For purposes of this section, the term ``employee'' 
means an employee of the Department of Defense, serving under 
an appointment without time limitation, except that such term 
does not include--
            (A) a reemployed annuitant under subchapter III of 
        chapter 83 or chapter 84 of this title, or another 
        retirement system for employees of the Federal 
        Government;
            (B) an employee having a disability on the basis of 
        which such employee is or would be eligible for 
        disability retirement under any of the retirement 
        systems referred to in paragraph (1); or
            (C) for purposes of eligibility for separation 
        incentives under this section, an employee who is in 
        receipt of a decision notice of involuntary separation 
        for misconduct or unacceptable performance.
    (3) An employee who is at least 50 years of age and has 
completed 20 years of service, or has at least 25 years of 
service, may, pursuant to regulations promulgated under this 
section, apply and be retired from the Department of Defense 
and receive benefits in accordance with chapter 83 or 84 if the 
employee has been employed continuously within the Department 
of Defense for more than 30 days before the date on which the 
determination to conduct a reduction or restructuring within 1 
or more Department of Defense components is approved pursuant 
to the program established under subsection (a).
    (4)(A) Separation pay shall be paid in a lump sum or in 
installments and shall be equal to the lesser of--
            (i) an amount equal to the amount the employee 
        would be entitled to receive under section 5595(c) of 
        this title, if the employee were entitled to payment 
        under such section; or
            (ii) $25,000.
    (B) Separation pay shall not be a basis for payment, and 
shall not be included in the computation, of any other type of 
Government benefit. Separation pay shall not be taken into 
account for the purpose of determining the amount of any 
severance pay to which an individual may be entitled under 
section 5595 of this title, based on any other separation.
    (C) Separation pay, if paid in installments, shall cease to 
be paid upon the recipient's acceptance of employment by the 
Federal Government, or commencement of work under a personal 
services contract as described in paragraph (5).
    (5)(A) An employee who receives separation pay under such 
program may not be reemployed by the Department of Defense for 
a 12-month period beginning on the effective date of the 
employee's separation, unless this prohibition is waived by the 
Secretary on a case-by-case basis.
    (B) An employee who receives separation pay under this 
section on the basis of a separation occurring on or after the 
date of the enactment of the Federal Workforce Restructuring 
Act of 1994 (Public Law 103-236; 108 Stat. 111) and accepts 
employment with the Government of the United States, or who 
commences work through a personal services contract with the 
United States within 5 years after the date of the separation 
on which payment of the separation pay is based, shall be 
required to repay the entire amount of the separation pay to 
the Department of Defense. If the employment is with an 
Executive agency (as defined by section 105 of this title) 
other than the Department of Defense, the Director may, at the 
request of the head of that agency, waive the repayment if the 
individual involved possesses unique abilities and is the only 
qualified applicant available for the position. If the 
employment is within the Department of Defense, the Secretary 
may waive the repayment if the individual involved is the only 
qualified applicant available for the position. If the 
employment is with an entity in the legislative branch, the 
head of the entity or the appointing official may waive the 
repayment if the individual involved possesses unique abilities 
and is the only qualified applicant available for the position. 
If the employment is with the judicial branch, the Director of 
the Administrative Office of the United States Courts may waive 
the repayment if the individual involved possesses unique 
abilities and is the only qualified applicant available for the 
position.
    (6) Under this program, early retirement and separation pay 
may be offered only pursuant to regulations established by the 
Secretary, subject to such limitations or conditions as the 
Secretary may require.
    (i) Provisions Relating to Reemployment.--If annuitant 
receiving an annuity from the Civil Service Retirement and 
Disability Fund becomes employed in a position within the 
Department of Defense, his annuity shall continue. An annuitant 
so reemployed shall not be considered an employee for purposes 
of chapter 83 or 84.
    (j) Additional Provisions Relating to Personnel 
Management.--Notwithstanding subsection (c), the Secretary may 
exercise authorities that would otherwise be available to the 
Secretary under paragraphs (1), (3), and (8) of section 4703(a) 
of this title.

Sec. 9903. Attracting highly qualified experts

using the authority provided in subsection (b) in order to 
attract highly qualified experts in needed occupations, as 
determined by the Secretary.
    (b) Authority.--Under the program, the Secretary may--
            (1) appoint personnel from outside the civil 
        service and uniformed services (as such terms are 
        defined in section 2101 of this title) to positions in 
        the Department of Defense without regard to any 
        provision of this title governing the appointment of 
        employees to positions in the Department of Defense;
            (2) prescribe the rates of basic pay for positions 
        to which employees are appointed under paragraph (1) at 
        rates not in excess of the maximum rate of basic pay 
        authorized for senior-level positions under section 
        5376 of this title, as increased by locality-based 
        comparability payments under section 5304 of this 
        title, notwithstanding any provision of this title 
        governing the rates of pay or classification of 
        employees in the executive branch; and
            (3) pay any employee appointed under paragraph (1) 
        payments in addition to basic pay within the limits 
        applicable to the employee under subsection (d).
    (c) Limitation on Term of Appointment.--(1) Except as 
provided in paragraph (2), the service of an employee under an 
appointment made pursuant to this section may not exceed 5 
years.
    (2) The Secretary may, in the case of a particular 
employee, extend the period to which service is limited under 
paragraph (1) by up to 1 additional year if the Secretary 
determines that such action is necessary to promote the 
Department of Defense's national security missions.
    (d) Limitations on Additional Payments.--(1) The total 
amount of the additional payments paid to an employee under 
this section for any 12-month period may not exceed the lesser 
of the following amounts:
            (A) $50,000 in fiscal year 2004, which may be 
        adjusted annually thereafter by the Secretary, with a 
        percentage increase equal to one-half of 1 percentage 
        point less than the percentage by which the Employment 
        Cost Index, published quarterly by the Bureau of Labor 
        Statistics, for the base quarter of the year before the 
        preceding calendar year exceeds the Employment Cost 
        Index for the base quarter of the second year before 
        the preceding calendar year.
            (B) The amount equal to 50 percent of the 
        employee's annual rate of basic pay.
For purposes of this paragraph, the term ``base quarter'' has 
the meaning given such term by section 5302(3).
    (2) An employee appointed under this section is not 
eligible for any bonus, monetary award, or other monetary 
incentive for service except for payments authorized under this 
section.
    (3) Notwithstanding any other provision of this subsection 
or of section 5307, no additional payments may be paid to an

extent that, the employee's total annual compensation will 
exceed the maximum amount of total annual compensation payable 
at the salary set in accordance with section 104 of title 3.
    (e) Savings Provisions.--In the event that the Secretary 
terminates this program, in the case of an employee who, on the 
day before the termination of the program, is serving in a 
position pursuant to an appointment under this section--
            (1) the termination of the program does not 
        terminate the employee's employment in that position 
        before the expiration of the lesser of--
                    (A) the period for which the employee was 
                appointed; or
                    (B) the period to which the employee's 
                service is limited under subsection (c), 
                including any extension made under this section 
                before the termination of the program; and
            (2) the rate of basic pay prescribed for the 
        position under this section may not be reduced as long 
        as the employee continues to serve in the position 
        without a break in service.

Sec. 9904. Employment of older Americans

    (a) In General.--Notwithstanding any other provision of 
law, the Secretary may appoint older Americans into positions 
in the excepted service for a period not to exceed 2 years,

                currently employed by the Department of Defense 
                (including partial displacement through

        fiscal year 2005, the Secretary shall include the 
        following:
                    [(A) A force-structure plan for the Armed 
                Forces based on an assessment by the Secretary 
                of the probable threats to the national 
                security during the 20-year period beginning 
                with fiscal year 2005, the probable end-
                strength levels and major military force units 
                (including land force divisions, carrier and 
                other major combatant vessels, air wings, and 
                other comparable units) needed to meet these 
                threats, and the anticipated levels of funding 
                that will be available for national defense 
                purposes during such period.]
                    (A) A force-structure plan for the Armed 
                Forces that--
                            (i) at a minimum, assumes the force 
                        structure under the 1991 Base Force 
                        force structure (as defined in 
                        paragraph (5)) that is also known as 
                        the ``Cheney-Powell force structure''; 
                        and
                            (ii) includes such consideration as 
                        the Secretary considers appropriate of

                                    (I) the probable threats to 
                                the national security during 
                                the 20-year period beginning 
                                with fiscal year 2005;
                                    (II) the probable end-
                                strength levels and major 
                                military force units (including 
                                land force divisions, carrier 
                                and other major combatant 
                                vessels, air wings, and other 
                                comparable units) needed to 
                                meet those threats; and
                                    (III) the anticipated 
                                levels of funding that will be 
                                available for national defense 
                                purposes during such period.

            (2) Relationship of plan and inventory.--Using the 
        force-structure plan and infrastructure inventory 
        prepared under paragraph (1), the Secretary shall 
        prepare (and include as part of the submission of such

                necessary to support the force structure 
                described in the force-structure plan, based 
                upon an assumption that there are no 
                installations available outside the United 
                States for the permanent basing of elements of 
                the Armed Forces.

            (4) Revision.--The Secretary may revise the force-
        structure plan and infrastructure inventory. Any such 
        revision shall be consistent with this subsection. If 
        the Secretary makes such a revision, the Secretary 
        shall submit the revised plan or inventory to Congress 
        as part of the budget justification documents submitted 
        to Congress for fiscal year 2006.

        ``1991 Base Force force structure'' means the force 
        structure plan for the Armed Forces, known as the

        Defense in November 1990 based upon recommendations of 
        the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and as 
        incorporated in the President's budget for fiscal year 
        1992, as submitted to Congress in February 1991 and 
        that assumed the following force structure:

                the reserve components.
                    (B) For the Army, 12 active divisions, six 
                National Guard divisions, and two cadre 
                divisions or their equivalents.

Closure or Realignment.--(1) Before preparing the list required 
by section 2914(a) of the military installations inside the 
United States that the Secretary recommends for closure or 
realignment, the Secretary shall prepare a list of core 
military installations that the Secretary considers absolutely 
essential to the national defense and that should not be 
considered for closure.

approves or disapproves the report. If the President 
disapproves the report, the Commission shall be dissolved, and 
the process by which military installations may be selected for 
closure or realignment under this part in 2005 shall be 
terminated.
    (5) A military installation included on the exclusion list 
approved under this subsection may not be included on the 
closure and realignment list prepared under section 2914(a) or 
otherwise considered for closure or realignment as part of the 
base closure process in 2005.
