            (1) Title IX of the Department of Defense 
        Appropriations Act, 2006 (division A of Public Law 109-
        148) appropriated $50,000,000,000 for the cost of 
        ongoing military operations overseas in fiscal year 
        2006, although those funds were not requested by the 
        President.
            (2) The President on February 16, 2006, submitted 
        to Congress a request for supplemental appropriations 
        in the amount of $67,600,000,000 for ongoing military 
        operations in fiscal year 2006, none of which 
        supplemental appropriations was included in the 
        concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 
        2006, as agreed to in the Senate on April 28, 2005.
            (3) The President on February 6, 2006, included a 
        $50,000,000,000 allowance for ongoing military 
        operations in fiscal year 2007, but did not formally 
        request the funds or provide any detail on how the 
        allowance may be used.
            (4) The concurrent resolution on the budget for 
        fiscal year 2007, as agreed to in the Senate on March 
        16, 2007, anticipates as much as $86,300,000,000 in 
        emergency spending in fiscal year 2007, indicating that 
        the Senate expects to take up another supplemental 
        appropriations bill to fund ongoing military operations 
        during fiscal year 2007.
    (b) Sense of Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate that--
            (1) any request for funds for a fiscal year after 
        fiscal year 2007 for ongoing military operations in 
        Afghanistan and Iraq should be included in the annual 
        budget of the President for such fiscal year as 
        submitted to Congress under section 1105(a) of title 
        31, United States Code;
            (2) any request for funds for such a fiscal year 
        for ongoing military operations should provide an 
        estimate of all funds required in that fiscal year for 
        such operations;
            (3) any request for funds for ongoing military 
        operations should include a detailed justification of 
        the anticipated use of such funds for such operations; 
        and
            (4) any funds provided for ongoing military 
        operations overseas should be provided in 
        appropriations Acts for such fiscal year through 
        appropriations to specific accounts set forth in such 
        appropriations Acts.

        institution of higher education that is--
                    (A) a part B institution, as such term is 
                defined in section 322 of the Higher Education

a report to the congressional defense committees within 30 days 
after the date of enactment of this legislation on the 
allocation of the funds within the accounts listed in this 
chapter. The Secretary shall submit updated reports 30 days 
after the end of each fiscal quarter until funds listed in this 
chapter are no longer available for obligation. The conferees 
direct that these reports shall include: a detailed accounting 
of obligations and expenditures of appropriations provided in 
this chapter by program and subactivity group for the 
continuation of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan; and a listing 
of equipment procured using funds provided in this chapter. The 
conferees expect that in order to meet unanticipated 
requirements, the Department of Defense may need to transfer 
funds within these appropriations accounts for purposes other 
than those specified in this report. The conferees direct the 
Department of Defense to follow normal prior approval 
reprogramming procedures should it be necessary to transfer 
funding between different appropriations accounts in this 
chapter.
      Additionally, the conferees direct that the reporting 
requirements of section 9010 of Public Law 109-148, the 
Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006, regarding 
military operations and stability in Iraq shall apply to the 
funds appropriated in this Act.

to be submitted to the congressional defense committees on Army 
Combat Brigades and Long-Term Equipment Repair Costs. The 
conferees direct that the reports shall be submitted not later 
than July 7, 2006.

                       National Guard And Reserve

      The House report directed that not less than 
$3,571,083,000 of the funds provided in this bill shall be 
provided for the National Guard and Reserve forces to prosecute 
the Global War on Terror. The conferees agree that within the 
funds provided in the conference report, the National Guard and 
Reserve should receive not less than the President's budget 
request for these activities.

                            Stryker Upgrades

      The conferees urge the Department of the Army to initiate 
Block 2 upgrade programs for existing Stryker brigades 
undergoing reset maintenance using funds available in this Act.

                          Classified Programs

      Recommended adjustments to classified programs are 
addressed in a classified annex accompanying this report.

                           MILITARY PERSONNEL

      The conferees are pleased that the Navy has made funds 
available to open the Comprehensive Combat Casualty Care Center 
in San Diego and that the Navy has agreed to continue financing

ensuring that their rehabilitation continues without 
interruption.

that up to $75,000,000 shall be transferred to the Coast Guard 
for operating expenses. The House bill addressed this matter in

      On May 18, 2006, the Administration submitted a revised 
supplemental request for a border security initiative. The 
revised request provided an additional $1,900,000,000 to the 
Departments of Defense, Justice and Homeland Security for this 
initiative. The additional amount for the President's border 
security initiative was offset by a corresponding reduction to 
the Department of Defense's funding for the Global War on 
Terror.
      The conferees recommend $708,000,000, instead of 
$756,000,000 as proposed by the Administration, for the 
Department of Defense to fund the incremental military 
personnel and operation and maintenance costs of deploying up 
to 6,000 National Guard personnel to the U.S. border for one 
year in support of the Department of Homeland Security.
      The funds recommended for the Department of Defense are 
addressed in Title V of this Act.

                  Counseling and Transition Assistance

      The conferees remain concerned about the effects of 
combat operations on the emotional and psychological well-being 
of our military forces returning from war. This concern is 
borne out by a recently released Veterans Administration (VA) 
report that indicates almost 30,000 Operation Iraqi Freedom/
Operation Enduring Freedom veterans have reported to VA 
hospitals with effects from post traumatic stress syndrome 
(PTSD). To address this issue, the conferees agree to include 
$93,000,000 for family support counseling and transition 
assistance, an increase of $50,000,000 over the request. The 
conferees believe the Department of Defense should redouble its 
efforts to understand the counseling and transition assistance 
needs of our returning troops and seek sufficient funding for 
programs that address these needs.

              Former Soviet Union Threat Reduction Account

      The conference agreement provides $44,500,000 for the 
Former Soviet Union Threat Reduction Account.

               Afghanistan and Iraq Security Forces Funds

      The conference agreement provides $1,908,133,000 for the 
Afghanistan Security Forces Fund, as proposed by the Senate, 
instead of $1,851,833,000 as proposed by the House; and 
provides $3,007,000,000 for the Iraq Security Forces Fund, as 
proposed by the House, instead of $3,703,000,000, as proposed 
by the Senate. The conferees agree that funds may be made 
available for infrastructure for the security forces in both 
countries that are being trained and equipped by the United 
States and its coalition allies, including police and military 
forces.
      While the conference agreement does not provide full 
funding as requested by the President for these funds, the 
conferees note that it would not have been possible for the 
requested funds to be fully obligated and expended in the 
remaining months of fiscal year 2006. The reduction is taken 
without prejudice.
      The conferees endorse language as proposed by the House 
regarding reporting requirements for the Afghanistan and Iraq 
Security Forces Funds.
      The conferees are concerned that Iraq's neighbors in the 
Middle East have not provided sufficient resources to ensure 
security and stability in that country. Many of these nations 
have experienced greatly increased revenue flows due to the 
rise in oil prices. While the United States and its coalition 
allies have borne the predominant burden of combat operations, 
supporting free elections, and helping establish a permanent 
government, Arab and other nations in the region now need to 
greatly enhance their assistance for the new Iraqi security 
forces. The conferees strongly urge the Department of Defense 
and the Administration to renew efforts to solicit 
contributions from these nations so that in the future the 
United States is not the primary source of funds for the 
modernization of the Iraqi security forces.

                 Commander's Emergency Response Program

      The conferees provide $423,000,000 for the Commander's 
Emergency Response Program (CERP), as proposed by both the 
House and the Senate. The conferees endorse language as 
proposed by the House that amends current CERP reporting 
requirements. The conferees also recognize that military 
commanders in the field are the first line of contact with the 
civilian population and therefore direct that the CERP funds 
remain under the operational control of the military 
commanders.

                          Condolence Payments

      The conferees agree with the intent of the Senate 
language on condolence payments to civilians who have suffered 
injuries, or to the families of those who have died, as a 
result of combat operations. In addressing Department of 
Defense condolence payments, the report should only address 
activities funded under the CERP program. Recommendations on 
funding mechanisms for condolence payments should include a 
consideration of funding through other Federal Agencies.

             Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Fund

      The conferees provide $1,958,089,000 for the Joint 
Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Fund, as proposed by the 
Senate.
      The conferees endorse the Senate language which directs 
the Department of Defense to provide an initial report on the 
organization, funding, and other matters related to the Joint 
Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Fund. The initial report 
shall be provided to the congressional defense committees 
within 60 days of enactment of the accompanying Act. In 
addition, the Department is to provide subsequent reports not 
later than 30 days after the end of each fiscal quarter to the 
congressional defense committees.

                              PROCUREMENT

      The conference agreement provides a total of 
$15,028,313,000 for various procurement appropriations, instead 
of $17,679,451,000 as proposed by the House and $15,456,598,000 
as proposed by the Senate.
      The conference agreement on items addressed by either the 
House or Senate is as follows:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

services and reconstruct their own communities instead of

proposed by the Senate. The conferees agree that significant 
congressional support for ICAP is due to the fine work that has 
been achieved by this consortium of nongovernmental

                    ____________________________________________________

assistance for Liberia as proposed by the House and the Senate. 
The conferees agree with the language as proposed by the Senate 
that assistance for Liberia should be for emergency employment 
activities, infrastructure development projects, democracy, 
human rights and rule of law programs, and activities to assist 
with the demobilization and reintegration of ex-rebel 
combatants.
      The conferees expect compliance with the reporting 
requirement and the limitation on expenditures with respect to 
PRTs/PRDCs in Iraq as proposed by the House.

funds for immediate electoral assistance and to improve

      The conference agreement includes a proposal by the 
Senate that funds available under this heading are available 
notwithstanding any other provision of law and those funds 
available to promote democracy in Iran shall be administered by 
the Middle East Partnership Initiative. The conference 
agreement includes a modification of this language to require 
consultation with the Department of State's Bureau of 
Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.
      The conference agreement includes a proposal by the 
Senate that funds available under this heading in this Act 
shall be subject to regular notification procedures.

agreement also includes language that allows for the transfer 
of these funds to the ``Foreign Military Financing Program'' 
should this provide the most effective means of procuring a 
maritime patrol aircraft for the Colombian Navy.
      The conferees direct the Director of the Defense Security 
Cooperation Agency and the Deputy Secretary of State, prior to 
the obligation of the funds for the maritime patrol aircraft, 
to submit jointly a report to the Committees on Appropriations 
that describes: (a) an Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) for the 
acquisition of a maritime patrol aircraft for the Colombian 
Navy; (b) the source of funds most appropriate for supporting 
the recommended acquisition strategy (to include the viability 
of providing a maritime patrol capability through the transfer 
of excess defense articles); and (c) an assessment of the 
overall assistance needs of the Colombian Army, Air Force and 
Navy for fiscal year 2008. The AoA shall include at a minimum:

civilian authority will be essential to stability and peace in 
the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The conferees direct the

              GENERAL PROVISIONS AND TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS

in this Title, include a provision proposed by the House (Sec.

                               CHAPTER 4

                    DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

                       UNITED STATES COAST GUARD

                           Operating Expenses

      The conferees agree to provide $26,692,000 as proposed by 
the House and the Senate for the United States Coast Guard's 
share of enhanced death gratuity benefits and for upgrades to 
necessary intelligence systems.

                               CHAPTER 5

                         DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

      Use of requested military construction funds to offset 
border security proposal.--The Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) submitted on February 16, 2006, an emergency military 
construction request for the global war on terrorism totaling 
$484,700,000. The projects comprised by that request were 
deemed urgent and vital to ongoing contingency operations in 
Iraq and Afghanistan. On May 14, 2006, OMB submitted a border 
security funding proposal that included offsets from the 
military construction request submitted in February. Included 
in this list were three projects at Bagram, Afghanistan, though 
OMB gave no explanation as to why these projects were no longer 
deemed emergency requirements. The conferees do not recommend 
funding for these three projects, since the Administration no 
longer regards them as priorities. The conferees believe that 
emergency spending requests must be taken seriously and deserve 
to be reviewed and acted upon in good faith. Such consideration 
becomes more difficult, however, when emergency requests are 
revoked without any apparent reason related to changing facts 
on the ground in the theater of operations.

                      Military Construction, Army

      The conferees agree to provide $187,100,000, instead of 
$287,100,000 as proposed by the House and $214,344,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. The conferees agree to include a 
provision as proposed by the House to prohibit the obligation 
or expenditure of funds for Counter IED/Urban Bypass Roads in 
Iraq until the Secretary of Defense submits a detailed plan for 
the construction of such roads. The Senate bill contained no 
similar provision. The conferees also agree to make the funds 
available until September 30, 2007, as proposed by the House, 
instead of September 30, 2010, as proposed by the Senate. Funds 
are provided as follows:

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

      The conferees agree to retain and amend section 2201, as 
proposed by the Senate, which provides the Secretary of Defense 
authority to transfer up to $150,000,000 of funds made 
available in this chapter and in chapter II of title I of this 
Act.
      The conferees agree to retain section 2202, as proposed 
by the House and Senate, which prohibits funds provided in this 
chapter to finance programs or activities denied by Congress, 
or to initiate a new start program without prior notification 
to the congressional defense committees.
      The conferees agree to amend section 2203, as proposed by 
the Senate, to allow for the use of funds appropriated to the 
Navy for certain specified activities.

                               CHAPTER 3

                      DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE--CIVIL

                         DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY

                       CORPS OF ENGINEERS--CIVIL

      The Committee recommendation provides emergency funding 
to address water resource needs related to Hurricane Katrina 
and other emergency needs.

                             INVESTIGATIONS

      Funds totaling $3,300,000 are provided for the Corps to 
develop a comprehensive plan, at full Federal expense, to 
deauthorize deep draft navigation on the Mississippi River-Gulf 
Outlet, Louisiana. The plan shall include recommended 
modifications to the existing authorized current use of the 
Outlet, including what navigation functions, if any, should be 
maintained and any measures for hurricane and storm protection. 
The plan shall be developed in consultation with St. Bernard 
Parish, the State of Louisiana, and affected Federal Agencies. 
An interim report summarizing the plan shall be forwarded to 
the appropriate House and Senate authorizing and appropriations 
committees within six months of enactment of this Act and final 
recommendations shall be integrated into the Louisiana Coastal 
Protection and Restoration Plan, due to Congress in December 
2007.
      Additionally, the Secretary is directed to undertake an 
analysis to determine the amount of vertical settlement or 
subsidence that has occurred since levee system components were 
built, versus levee grade deficiencies due to the application 
of new storm data. The Plan shall address how these changes 
affect compliance with 100-year floodplain certification and 
standard project hurricane requirements. A report on the 
findings of this analysis shall be forwarded to the appropriate 
authorizing and appropriations committees within 90 days of 
enactment of this Act.

                              CONSTRUCTION

      Funds totaling $549,400,000 are provided for 
Construction. The Conferees are aware that the wetlands 
surrounding the greater New Orleans metropolitan area operate 
as a natural buffer to lessen storm impacts, and are an 
important part of the overall storm damage reduction system. 
Nourishing and rebuilding these wetlands will increase the 
effectiveness of the levees and floodwalls of New Orleans. 
Therefore, the Conferees recommend bill language directing the 
Corps to use $20,200,000, at full Federal expense, to reduce 
the risks of storm surge and storm damage to the greater New 
Orleans metropolitan area by restoring the surrounding 
wetlands, and to aid in the reduction of risk to both loss of 
life and damage to homes, businesses, and local infrastructure 
in the metropolitan area. The Corps is further directed to use 
these funds in the following manner: $10,100,000 to modify the 
Caernarvon Freshwater Diversion structure or its operations; 
and $10,100,000 to protect the shoreline along the Barataria 
Basin Landbridge in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. Of the funds 
provided, at least $495,300,000 shall be available, consistent 
with cost sharing provisions, to raise levee heights and 
otherwise improve the existing Lake Pontchartrain and Vicinity 
and the West Bank and Vicinity projects.
      Additional funds of $1,500,000 are provided to address 
storm damages to North Padre Island, Texas, caused by Hurricane 
Emily, and $2,000,000 is provided for Hawaii water systems 
technical assistance program.
      In recognition of flood threats to the Sacramento area, 
the Conferees have included $7,100,000 for South Sacramento 
Streams, California, and $23,300,000 for the Sacramento Bank 
Protection Project, California. The Corps is further directed 
to use up to $400,000 of previously appropriated funds to 
continue the operation of the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal 
Demonstration Barrier.
      The moratorium on the execution of project cooperation 
agreements contained in P.L. 109-275 shall not apply to 
continuing authorities program projects for which funding was 
provided, or is otherwise available, to fully fund the 
construction phase of the project. For those projects where the 
local sponsor's cost share will be lost due to the inability to 
sign a project cooperation agreement, the Corps may sign 
project cooperation agreements with the explicit consent of the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations. For any project 
for which an exception is made due to this circumstance, the 
local sponsors of such projects should be aware that the 
construction of the project remains contingent upon future 
appropriations which are not guaranteed.
      Further, requirement that the Corps institute cost 
sharing for Sections 206 and 1135 projects was not intended to 
change the cost share structure of projects currently in the 
feasibility phase.

                       OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE

      Funds totaling $3,200,000 are provided to restore Federal 
navigation channels and harbors along the Texas Gulf Coast to 
pre-storm conditions affected by Hurricane Katrina and other 
hurricanes of the 2005 season.

                 FLOOD CONTROL AND COASTAL EMERGENCIES

                    (INCLUDING RESCISSION OF FUNDS)

      Funds totaling $3,145,024,000 are recommended to continue 
repairs to flood and storm damage reduction projects. These 
projects are to be funded at full Federal expense.
      The Conferees provide the full request of $1,584,000,000 
to replace all floodwalls within Orleans East Bank Algiers, 
Jefferson East Bank/St. Charles, Jefferson West Bank, New 
Orleans East, St. Bernard/Lower Ninth Ward, Belle Chasse/
Algiers East hydraulic areas of the existing Lake Pontchartrain 
and Vicinity project and the existing West Bank and Vicinity 
project, not including lower Plaquemines Parish. However, the 
Conferees recognize this cost estimate is a ``worst case'' 
scenario and assumes the replacement of all flood walls. 
Therefore, the funds provided are contingent upon site-specific 
engineering assessment and analysis that determines replacement 
is necessary to maintain the integrity of the system. Further, 
these funds are not available for any other project, program, 
or activity without the approval of the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations.
      The Conferees provide $530,000,000 for construction of 
permanent closures and pumping plants at the 17th Street, 
Orleans, and London Avenue Canals. Further, the Corps is 
directed to provide adequate temporary pumping capacity to 
evacuate expected flows from the existing pumping stations in 
the three drainage canals in order to minimize interior 
flooding.
      Additionally, the Conferees include: $170,000,000 for 
levee and floodwall armoring; $350,000,000 to construct 
navigable closures on the Inner Harbor Navigational Canal, one 
near Seabrook and another on the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway; 
$215,000,000 for incorporation of non-Federal levees on the 
west bank of the Mississippi River in Plaquemines Parish in 
order to provide improved storm surge protection and to protect 
evacuation routes; $250,000,000 for storm proofing interior 
pump stations to ensure their reliability during hurricanes, 
storms and high water events; and $30,024,000 for repairs to 
non-Federal levees in Terrebonne Parish.
      Within the funds provided, $16,000,000 shall be used to 
restore previously appropriated emergency funds for flood 
protection projects damaged in previous disasters in 
Pennsylvania. Funds for these projects were withdrawn shortly 
after Katrina struck the Gulf Coast to address immediate needs.
      The Conferees also rescind $15,000,000 previously 
provided in P.L. 109-148 for the Grand Isle, Louisiana project. 
It is the Conferees' understanding that the project is not 
economically justified and therefore the funds appropriated to 
accelerate construction are no longer required.

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

                         BUREAU OF RECLAMATION

                      WATER AND RELATED RESOURCES

      The Conferees recognize that snowpack amounts in many 
areas of the Southwest are at historic lows and precipitation 
forecasts are not favorable for improving the situation. Runoff 
in many river basins in the West is expected to be one quarter 
of normal or less. The Conferees note that the communities of 
Ruidoso, Ruidoso Downs and Las Vegas, New Mexico, are already 
operating under stringent water restrictions.
      Therefore, the Conferees have provided $9,000,000 for 
drought emergency assistance. The Conferees expect Reclamation 
to undertake drought contingency planning, to provide emergency 
potable water sources for eligible communities and to provide 
other drought emergency assistance within their authorities to 
help stricken communities.

                            DISASTER RELIEF

      The conferees agree to provide $6,000,000,000 for 
Disaster Relief, instead of $9,548,000,000 as proposed by the 
House and $10,400,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. The 
conferees do not specify the purposes for these funds, except 
$400,000,000 of this amount is made available to carry out 
section 2403 of this chapter.
      The conferees agree to include bill language proposed by 
the Senate that each county or parish eligible for assistance 
under the disaster declaration of September 24, 2005, will be 
treated equally for purposes of cost-share adjustments.
      The conferees note the Department of Homeland Security 
(DHS), in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management 
Agency (FEMA), recently issued interim policy guidance 
clarifying that charter schools are eligible for FEMA's Public 
Assistance Program. The conferees believe this policy should be 
quickly finalized so it can be distributed to FEMA officials 
throughout the country as expeditiously as possible, and 
encourage DHS and FEMA to continue working with the relevant 
Congressional committees on implementation of this policy.
      The conferees concur with language proposed by the House 
regarding the weekly Disaster Relief Report and the lack of 
information regarding the assumptions DHS is using to estimate 
total disaster relief funding needed this fiscal year. 
Beginning immediately, the conferees direct DHS to include an 
explanation of the methodology used to calculate estimated 
yearly allocations by program area and program name. This 
explanation shall include the total yearly cost estimate, the 
amount allocated and obligated to date, and a written 
explanation of the assumptions and methodology used to estimate 
the total yearly cost.

            DISASTER ASSISTANCE DIRECT LOAN PROGRAM ACCOUNT

      The conferees agree to provide $279,800,000 to subsidize 
not to exceed $371,733,000 in loans for the Special Community 
Disaster Loans Program authorized in the Community Disaster 
Loan Act of 2005, P.L. 109-88, instead of $301,000,000 
($150,000,000 by transfer) as proposed by the House and 
$301,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. Of this total, 
$1,000,000 is included for administrative costs. The conferees 
include bill language proposed by the Senate specifying that 
loans may be equal to not more than 50 percent of the annual 
operating budget of the local government in cases where that 
government has suffered a loss of 25 percent or more in tax 
revenues due to Hurricanes Katrina or Rita.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

                              CONSTRUCTION

      The conference agreement provides $132,400,000 for 
``Construction'', as proposed by both the House and the Senate, 
for cleanup and facility repair needs at National Wildlife 
Refuges related to the consequences of Hurricane Katrina and 
other hurricanes of the 2005 season. The managers agree that 
the Service shall, as proposed by the House, repay funds that 
were transferred from projects that have yet to be completed. 
These funds were transferred on an emergency basis for initial 
hurricane response needs and must be repaid so that projects 
from which they were borrowed can be completed. A technical 
correction has been made to the repayment language proposed by 
the House.

                         National Park Service

                       HISTORIC PRESERVATION FUND

      The conference agreement provides $43,000,000 for the 
``Historic Preservation Fund'' instead of $3,000,000 as 
proposed by the House and $83,000,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. Of the funds provided, $3,000,000 is for Section 106 
assistance and $40,000,000 is for disaster relief grants for 
the preservation, stabilization, rehabilitation, and repair of 
historic properties listed on or eligible for the National 
Register of Historic places, and for planning and technical 
assistance.
      These funds are available for obligation until September 
30, 2007, as proposed by the House, instead of being available 
until expended as proposed by the Senate.
      As proposed by the Senate, funds for historic 
preservation grants are available for areas with a Presidential 
disaster determination associated with Hurricanes Katrina or 
Rita; are not subject to a non-Federal matching requirement; 
and no more than 5% may be used for administrative expenses.
      The managers expect the National Park Service to award 
the Section 106 assistance funds to the States without any 
delay. Of the $3,000,000 available for Section 106 assistance, 
at least $1,500,000 shall be available for the Mississippi 
State Historic Preservation Officer. The remaining $40,000,000 
is for grants to State Historic Preservation Officers (SHPOs) 
as described below.
      The managers expect the National Park Service to award 
disaster relief grant funds to SHPOs in accordance with 
existing Historic Preservation Fund policies and procedures, 
except as modified herein, and only after a State has 
submitted, and the National Park Service has reviewed, an 
Action Plan Narrative that describes the major tasks to be 
undertaken with the supplemental grant funds. Each task 
statement shall describe the major services provided by the 
State Historic Preservation Officer, the problems to be 
addressed, a preliminary list of proposed projects and their 
estimated costs, and the expected results.
      The National Park Service shall undertake its review of 
each plan and shall award funds as expeditiously as possible. 
Preference in making awards shall be given to plans that 
include: (1) properties located within designated National 
Heritage Areas; (2) owner-occupied houses; and (3) a 
demonstrated ability to spend the funds expeditiously. The 
managers intend that these funds be awarded with an emphasis on 
individuals who are committed to rebuilding their communities 
and who otherwise cannot afford the additional costs often 
associated with historic preservation.
      No State shall receive more than 65% of the total 
available for these grants. There is a 5% limitation on 
administrative costs. Of the amount available for 
administrative expenses, up to $550,000 is available to the 
National Park Service to expedite awarding and oversight of the 
funds.

                     DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS

                      Departmental Administration

                      CONSTRUCTION, MAJOR PROJECTS

      The conferees agree to provide $585,919,000 for 
Construction, Major Projects, instead of $550,000,000 as 
proposed by the House and $623,000,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The conferees agree that the funding provided includes 
$550,000,000 for construction of a medical facility in New 
Orleans, Louisiana. In addition, $35,919,000 is provided for 
debris removal and environmental clean-up of the former 
Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Gulfport, 
Mississippi, and for any authorized purpose within this 
account.
      In a report issued to Congress on February 28, 2006, the 
Department of Veterans Affairs identified its preference to 
rebuild the medical center in New Orleans as a ``shared 
facility'' with its academic partners. The conferees are 
supportive of this effort and encourage the Department to 
continue to work with its affiliates to develop the shared 
facility concept. However, the conferees caution the Department 
not to enter into any agreement in which it pays for more than 
its share in the name of collaboration.

                             RELATED AGENCY

                      Armed Forces Retirement Home

      The conferees agree to provide $176,000,000 for 
construction of a new facility in Gulfport, Mississippi, as 
proposed by the Senate. The House bill contained no similar 
provision. The conferees note that cost estimates provided in a 
report to Congress on February 28, 2006, included significant 
expenses which should not be incurred for construction of a 
facility of this type and have adjusted the funding 
accordingly. The conferees have also included a general 
provision which consolidates $64,700,000 of previously 
appropriated funding which is to be used for this construction 
project. The conferees believe that the total funding available 
is sufficient to build a new replacement facility, fully 
compliant with all relevant laws, regulations, and standards 
for a retirement domicile, on the existing site in Gulfport, 
Mississippi.

                    GENERAL PROVISIONS--THIS CHAPTER

              (INCLUDING RESCISSION AND TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

      The conferees agree to include a provision (Sec. 2701), 
as proposed by the Senate, to waive a Federal funding limit on 
Guard and Reserve military construction projects appropriated 
in this chapter. The House bill contained no similar provision.
      The conferees agree to include a provision (Sec. 2702), 
as proposed by the Senate, which allows funds previously 
appropriated for the Department of Veterans Affairs, Medical 
Services account, to be transferred to other accounts upon 
notification to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses 
of Congress. The provision also extends the availability of the 
funds beyond the current fiscal year. The House bill contained 
no similar provision.
      The conferees agree to include a provision (Sec. 2703), 
as proposed by the Senate, which directs the Secretary of the 
Department of Veterans Affairs to clean up and transfer 
property in Gulfport, Mississippi, to the city of Gulfport, 
Mississippi. The House bill contained no similar provision.
      The conferees have not included a provision, as proposed 
by the Senate, which would authorize site acquisition and 
construction of medical facilities in New Orleans, Louisiana, 
and Biloxi, Mississippi. The House bill contained no similar 
provision.
      The conferees agree to include a provision (Sec. 2704) 
which consolidates unobligated balances of the Armed Forces 
Retirement Home, to be used for the planning, design, and 
construction of a new facility in Gulfport, Mississippi, as 
proposed by the Senate. The conferees have modified the Senate 
proviso to this provision which designates the General Services 
Administration, in consultation with the Naval Facilities 
Engineering Command and the Armed Forces Retirement Home, as 
the agent for all matters with regard to planning, design, 
construction, and contract administration. The House bill 
contained no similar provision.

                               CHAPTER 8

                         DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

                            Legal Activities

            SALARIES AND EXPENSES, GENERAL LEGAL ACTIVITIES

      The conference agreement provides $2,000,000 for General 
Legal Activities, as proposed by the House instead of 
$3,200,000 as proposed by the Senate. Funding is provided for 
the Criminal Division and Civil Division for expenses to 
investigate and prosecute fraud cases related to hurricanes in 
the Gulf Coast region.

             SALARIES AND EXPENSES, UNITED STATES ATTORNEYS

      The conference agreement provides $6,500,000 for United 
States Attorneys as proposed by the Senate instead of 
$5,000,000 as proposed by the House. Funding is provided for 
expenses to investigate and prosecute fraud cases related to 
hurricanes in the Gulf Coast region.

                         DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE

            National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

                  OPERATIONS, RESEARCH, AND FACILITIES

      The conference agreement provides $118,000,000 under this 
heading, instead of no funding as proposed by the House and 
$1,135,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. In addition to the 
amount provided under this heading, language is included in 
chapter one of this title to transfer $38,000,000 from the 
United States Department of Agriculture to NOAA for reseeding, 
rehabilitation and restoration of oyster reefs.
      The conferees remain concerned about the ongoing recovery 
efforts in the Gulf of Mexico and the previous lack of 
attention given to the critical need for mapping the Gulf 
waters for debris removal. In the wake of the numerous 
hurricanes of 2005, which greatly disrupted the water in the 
Gulf of Mexico, all previous mappings of those waters are now 
inaccurate. To date the only areas within the Gulf of Mexico 
that have been remapped are the vessel channels to allow for 
safe passage of ships traveling through the many ports along 
the Gulf. The remainder of the Gulf of Mexico must also be 
mapped beginning with traditional fishing grounds in order to 
remove debris and begin the process of surveying stocks and 
reestablishing this element of the economy. Mapping and debris 
removal is a critical safety and security precaution necessary 
to prevent catastrophic accidents from occurring during the 
upcoming fishing and boating season.
      The conference agreement provides $20,000,000 for the 
Office of Coast Survey to conduct scanning and mapping and 
coordinate with the Office of Response and Restoration for 
marine debris removal; $2,000,000 for the Center for 
Operational Oceanographic Products and Services to establish 
Physical Oceanographic Real-Time Systems along the Gulf of 
Mexico; $1,000,000 for the Center for Operational Oceanographic 
Products and Services to repair and replace tide gauge stations 
in the northern Gulf of Mexico; $90,000,000 for the National 
Marine Fisheries Service to provide technical assistance to 
States and industry for oyster bed and shrimp ground 
rehabilitation and to undertake cooperative research to monitor 
the recovery of Gulf fisheries; and not to exceed $5,000,000 to 
assist fishermen to recover from severe economic impacts due to 
fisheries disasters declared in 2005.

               PROCUREMENT, ACQUISITION AND CONSTRUCTION

      The conference agreement provides $32,000,000 under this 
heading as proposed by the Senate, instead of $11,800,000 as 
proposed by the House.
      The conference agreement provides $20,000,000 for the 
National Marine Fisheries Service to complete the repair and 
reconstruction of the NOAA science center.
      The conference agreement also provides $12,000,000 for 
the Office of Marine and Aviation Operations to procure a 
replacement emergency response mapping aircraft and sensor 
package to continue NOAA's capability to provide information 
about hurricane damage.

                                SCIENCE

             National Aeronautics and Space Administration

                        EXPLORATION CAPABILITIES

      The conference agreement provides $35,000,000 for repair 
and rehabilitation requirements at the Stennis Space Center and 
the Michoud Assembly Facility related to the consequences of 
hurricanes of the 2005 season.

                            RELATED AGENCIES

                     Small Business Administration

                     DISASTER LOANS PROGRAM ACCOUNT

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $542,000,000 for 
additional lending authority for the Small Business 
Administration's (SBA) disaster loan program, as proposed by 
the House and the Senate (excluding a transfer provision 
contained in both bills).
      The conferees remain concerned about fluctuations in 
SBA's disaster lending subsidy estimates and will continue to 
monitor lending activity and expenditures. The conferees expect 
the SBA to provide weekly reports to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations, the Senate Committee on Small 
Business and Entrepreneurship, and the House Committee on Small 
Business containing the following information on all open 
disaster declarations: number of loan applications received; 
number and amount of loans approved, denied, and disbursed; 
loan subsidy obligations; and the costs associated with 
administering the loan program (including salaries, travel, and 
information systems).
      In light of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration's prediction of a very active hurricane season 
for 2006, the conferees expect the SBA to build on the lessons 
learned from responding to numerous hurricanes during the 2005 
season to ensure that the agency is better prepared for future 
disasters. The conferees expect that, no later than July 15, 
2006, SBA shall submit to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, the Senate Committee on Small Business and 
Entrepreneurship, and the House Committee on Small Business a 
report on the status of the disaster response plan for the 2006 
Atlantic hurricane season.

                               CHAPTER 9

                      DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

                        Office of the Secretary

      The conferees agree to House and Senate language 
preventing the Secretary from issuing a final rule regarding 
foreign control of U.S. airlines for 120 days.

                     Federal Highway Administration

                          FEDERAL-AID HIGHWAYS

                        EMERGENCY RELIEF PROGRAM

      The conferees agree to provide $702,362,500 for the 
Emergency Relief Program, instead of $594,000,000 as proposed 
by the Senate. The conferees direct that funds shall be used 
for eligible projects identified under ``Formal Requests'' in 
the Federal Highway Administration table entitled ``Emergency 
Relief Program Fund Requests--updated 06/06/06'' with the 
exception of projects addressed in other provisions of this Act 
making amendments to Public Law 109-148 and otherwise funded in 
other appropriations Acts. The conferees include language that 
waives the $100,000,000 per State per disaster cap for damages 
caused by Hurricane Dennis and by the 2004-2005 winter storms 
in the State of California and provides that any excess amounts 
may be used for other eligible projects.

                          (HIGHWAY TRUST FUND)

                              (RESCISSION)

      The conference agreement includes a rescission of 
$702,362,500 of the unobligated balances of funds apportioned 
to the states under chapter 1 of title 23, United States Code, 
excluding safety programs and funds set aside within the state 
for population areas. The conferees direct the FHWA to 
administer the rescission by allowing each state maximum 
flexibility in making adjustments among the apportioned highway 
programs.

                     Federal Transit Administration

             EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

      The conference agreement does not include $200,000,000 
for emergency assistance for public transportation, as proposed 
by the Senate. The conference agreement includes provisions 
proposed by the Senate waiving the state funding match 
requirement and allowing funds to be used for operations as a 
general provision. The conferees did not agree to include a 
provision waiving other grant requirements as proposed by the 
Senate. The House did not include funds or recommend waivers.
      The conferees note that the City of Baton Rouge has 
absorbed a very large number of citizens as a result of 
Hurricane Katrina resulting in a significant boost in the 
demand for transit services. The conferees recognize the 
community of Baton Rouge as having been directly impacted by 
Hurricane Katrina for the purpose of these transit waivers.

                    Federal Railroad Administration

                CAPITAL GRANTS FOR RAIL LINE RELOCATION

      The conferees do not agree to provide $700,000,000 for 
capital grants for rail line relocation or make other 
amendments to title 49, United States Code, as proposed by the 
Senate.

                   RAILROAD RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

      The conferees agree to report language, as proposed by 
the Senate, expecting that funds previously appropriated for 
the Deployment of Safety Overlay Technology shall be allocated 
for the purpose of deploying train control technology for which 
the Federal Railroad Administration is currently considering a 
product safety plan.

              DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

                       Public and Indian Housing

                     TENANT-BASED RENTAL ASSISTANCE

      The conferees do not agree to provide $202,000,000, for 
Tenant-Based Rental Assistance, as proposed by the Senate. The 
conferees agree to report language, as proposed by the Senate, 
directing HUD to report within 180 days on the States' efforts 
to address the needs of the disabled, elderly, and homeless.

                   Community Planning and Development

                       COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FUND

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $5,200,000,000 for the 
Community Development Fund, as proposed by the Senate, instead 
of $4,200,000,000 as proposed by the House. The conferees agree 
that no state shall receive more than $4,200,000,000. The 
conferees further agree that not less than $1,000,000,000 shall 
be available on a pro-rata basis for the repair, 
rehabilitation, and reconstruction of affordable rental 
housing.
      The conferees agree that of this amount, $12,000,000 is 
available for transfer to HUD's salaries and expenses account, 
of which $7,000,000 is for the administrative costs, including 
IT costs, of the KDHAP/DVP voucher program. The Senate proposed 
funds for this purpose under the Tenant-Based Rental Assistance 
account. The conferees agree that $9,000,000 is available for 
transfer to the Office of Inspector General. In addition, the 
conferees agree to transfer $6,000,000 to HUD's Working Capital 
Fund for the immediate enhancement of the capabilities of the 
Disaster Recovery Grant Reporting system by building additional 
electronic controls that will increase accountability while 
further decreasing the risk of fraud, waste, or abuse.
      The conferees retain language as proposed by both the 
House and Senate, prohibiting the use of these funds by a State 
or locality as a matching requirement, share, or contribution 
for any other Federal program.
      The conferees are aware that individuals with 
disabilities face unique challenges in finding accessible and 
affordable housing. As such, the conferees urge the states to 
work with HUD and the disabled community to ensure that these 
challenges are considered when states are developing and 
implementing Disaster Action plans. The conferees also urge HUD 
to take the necessary steps to inform the disabled community 
about the eligible uses of CDBG funding in addressing their 
needs.

                          INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

                     Election Assistance Commission

                          ELECTION ASSISTANCE

      The conferees do not agree to provide $30,000,000 for the 
Election Assistance Commission, as proposed by the Senate.

                    General Services Administration

                         FEDERAL BUILDINGS FUND

      The conferees agree to provide $37,000,000 for the 
Federal Buildings Fund, as proposed by both the House and 
Senate.

         TITLE III--EMERGENCY AGRICULTURAL DISASTER ASSISTANCE

      The conference agreement provides a total of $500,000,000 
for emergency agricultural disaster assistance instead of 
$3,944,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. This assistance is 
targeted to counties located in the geographic area covered by 
a disaster declaration related to hurricanes Katrina, Ophelia, 
Rita, Wilma, or a related condition. In addition, counties that 
are contiguous to hurricane disaster counties are eligible for 
this assistance.
      The conferees expect the Department of Agriculture to 
work with eligible individuals and entities to make payments 
under the authority of this Act, or from section 32 pursuant to 
the Secretary's May 10, 2006, announcement. The conferees 
encourage the Department to ensure that individuals or entities 
receive the higher benefit for which they are eligible.
      Section 3011 of the conference agreement provides 
$40,000,000 to make assistance available to producers/
processors of sugarcane in Florida that are located in 
hurricane affected counties and are eligible to obtain a loan 
under section 156(a) of the Federal Agriculture Improvement and 
Reform Act of 1996. This section also provides $40,000,000 to 
make assistance available to producers/processors of sugarcane 
in Louisiana that are located in hurricane affected counties 
and are eligible to obtain a loan under section 156(a) of the 
Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996. In 
addition, this section provides $400,000 to provide assistance 
for hurricane losses for a farmer-owned sugarcane cooperative 
in Texas, including additional demurrage, storage and 
transportation costs of raw sugar resulting from hurricanes and 
related conditions during calendar year 2005.
      Section 3012 of the conference agreement provides 
$95,000,000 for the Livestock Compensation Program, and 
$45,000,000 for the Livestock Indemnity Program. This section 
allows poultry and egg producers to receive assistance under 
this program. The conference agreement includes language that 
requires that all eligible applicants conduct an agricultural 
operation that is physically located in a hurricane-affected 
county.
      Section 3013 of the conference agreement provides 
$95,000,000 to provide assistance to specialty crops and 
nursery crops in hurricane affected counties. This assistance 
shall be carried out under the same terms and conditions as the 
assistance that was provided in certain areas of Florida due to 
hurricanes Charley, Frances, and Jeanne.
      Section 3014 of the conference agreement provides 
$17,000,000 to assist dairy producers who experienced spoilage 
losses and are located in hurricane-affected counties.
      Section 3015 of the conference agreement provides 
$15,000,000 to assist producers and first-handlers of the 2005 
crop of cottonseed. The conference agreement includes language 
requiring that all eligible applicants must be located in 
hurricane-affected counties.
      Section 3021 provides a definition for the term ``tree'', 
and directs that the Secretary provide assistance under the 
tree assistance program established under sections 10201-10203 
of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002. The 
conference agreement includes language requiring that all 
eligible applicants must be located in hurricane-affected 
counties. The estimated cost for this provision is $35,000,000.
      Section 3022 provides an additional $100,000,000 for the 
Emergency Forestry Conservation Reserve Program for recovery 
efforts in hurricane-affected counties.
      Section 3023 of the conference agreement includes 
language to provide clarification to the Secretary on the 
implementation of the Emergency Forestry Conservation Reserve 
Program.
      Section 3031 provides $9,600,000 to cover administrative 
costs incurred by the Farm Service Agency directly related to 
carrying out disaster assistance.
      Section 3032 provides flexibility for the implementation 
of section 32 funds that were announced by the Department of 
Agriculture on May 10, 2006 for aquaculture producer grants. 
The estimated cost for this provision is $8,000,000.
      Section 3033 designates the funds made available in this 
title as an emergency.
      Section 3034 includes provisions waiving certain 
rulemaking procedures and paperwork reduction requirements.
      While the assistance provided by this title is limited to 
producers in areas affected by Gulf Coast hurricanes in 2005, 
the conferees fully recognize the losses suffered by farmers, 
ranchers, and rural communities in all parts of the nation. At 
such time as may be reasonably determined by the Secretary, the 
conferees direct the Department to apply any unused funds from 
this title, and any unused funds from the May 10, 2006 
announcement (71 Fed. Reg. 27188) relating to 2005 Section 32 
Hurricane Disaster Programs to respond to disaster-related 
events including wildfires in Texas and other states, drought, 
flooding in Hawaii and other states, and other natural 
disasters.

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

                        Office of the Secretary

            PUBLIC HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICES EMERGENCY FUND

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $2,300,000,000 to 
prepare for and respond to an influenza pandemic, the same 
overall funding level as proposed by the Senate. The House bill 
did not include a similar provision.
      The conference agreement includes provisions proposed by 
the Senate giving the Secretary various authorities to purchase 
goods for the stockpile, enter into contracts for antivirals, 
construct or renovate privately-owned buildings, and transfer 
funds to other HHS accounts.
      Within the total provided, the conference agreement 
includes $30,000,000 to be transferred to the United States 
Agency for International Development (USAID) for activities 
related to international surveillance, planning, preparedness, 
and response to the avian influenza virus. Neither the House 
nor the Senate included a similar provision.
      The conferees intend that all federally-funded 
international surveillance, preparedness, and response 
activities be planned and implemented in a coordinated manner 
to maximize the chances of early detection of potential 
pandemics. The conferees expect HHS, the Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention (CDC), and USAID officials to coordinate 
their international pandemic-related activities at all levels 
by maintaining frequent contacts at the senior leadership, 
program management, and on-the-ground personnel levels. The 
conferees direct HHS and USAID to submit a joint report to the 
appropriate House and Senate Appropriations subcommittees, 
within six months of enactment, which details their 
international surveillance, preparedness, and response 
activities and describes the manner in which they have been 
coordinated.
      Within the total provided, the conferees have set aside 
$250,000,000 for state and local preparedness activities. The 
Senate included $300,000,000 for state and local capacity and 
the House did not include a similar provision. The conferees 
recognize that state and local public health departments play 
essential roles in responding to influenza outbreaks, including 
implementation of necessary epidemic containment measures, 
provision of services to homebound and disabled populations, 
distribution and redistribution of available antiviral 
medications and vaccines to high priority populations, and 
coordination with all other local medical and emergency 
response authorities. Therefore, the conferees encourage the 
Department to assure that distribution of pandemic influenza 
funds and all aspects of Federal pandemic influenza planning 
are consistent with operational realities at the local level 
and will have the intended public health results when 
implemented locally. The conferees further urge the Department 
to assure that all aspects of its pandemic influenza planning 
and preparations avoid duplication and inconsistency with other 
Federal directives affecting public health preparedness.
      The conferees understand that State and local public 
health officials must be prepared to coordinate large-scale 
vaccination efforts in the case of a pandemic influenza 
outbreak. Therefore, the conferees encourage State and local 
public health departments to conduct local mass immunization 
exercises using seasonal flu vaccine.
      Within the funds provided for upgrading state and local 
capacity, funds may be used for regional training meetings 
bringing together several states. These funds may also be used, 
if determined necessary by the director of CDC, to enhance flu 
program planning efforts and the existing preparedness training 
network at the established CDC centers for public health 
preparedness and other accredited schools of public health.
      Within the total provided, the conference agreement 
includes $200,000,000 for CDC. These funds are intended to 
augment the fiscal year 2006 appropriation and expand and 
enhance on-going activities related to global and domestic 
disease surveillance, laboratory capacity and research, 
laboratory diagnostics, risk communication, rapid response, and 
quarantine. The Senate proposed a total of $250,000,000 for 
these activities within CDC, but included two separate 
provisos. The House did not include a similar provision.
      The conference agreement does not include $5,000,000 as 
proposed by the Senate for the Smithsonian Institution to carry 
out domestic disease surveillance. The House did not include a 
similar provision.
      The conferees are aware of the Department's plan to 
subsidize ``up to'' 25 percent of the cost of 31,000,000 
courses of anti-virals. The conferees note that the bill 
language authorizing this subsidy is flexible and does not 
require, nor limit, the amount of the subsidy. The conferees 
encourage the Secretary to consider subsidizing these purchases 
beyond 25 percent for States whose finances have been severely 
affected by Hurricane Katrina and other hurricanes of the 2005 
season. The conferees believe that access to life-saving drugs 
should be based on public health need, not the finances of the 
State in which an individual resides.

       FUNDING FOR PANDEMIC INFLUENZA VACCINE INJURY COMPENSATION

      The conference agreement does not include $289,000,000 
for a pandemic influenza vaccine compensation fund as proposed 
by the Senate. The House did not propose a similar provision.

      The conference agreement includes $27,600,000, to remain 
available until September 30, 2011, for the Architect of the

complete a thorough review of procedures to preserve and

to their families and loved ones. Further, the conferees 
encourage the Department to continue to improve casualty 
assistance procedures in support of survivors of military 
decedents.
      Sec. 7004. The conferees agree to rescind $20,000,000 
from lapsed fiscal year 2005 balances, instead of $43,620,000 
from unobligated balances available in the Immigration and 
Customs Enforcement Automation Modernization account as 
proposed by the House and no rescission as proposed by the 
Senate. The conferees direct the Secretary of the Department of 
Homeland Security to report to the Committees on Appropriations 
of the Senate and House of Representatives within fifteen days 
after enactment of this Act on the proposed distribution of the 
rescission of funds prior to its implementation pursuant to 
section 504 of Public Law 108-334. This report should 
specifically list the respective amount proposed to be 
rescinded by agency and appropriations account, and explain the 
original purpose of the appropriation and the reason why such 
funds are available.
      The conferees agree to provide $20,000,000 for United 
States Secret Service Salaries and Expenses, instead of 
$43,620,000 as proposed by the House and no appropriation as 
proposed by the Senate. Of this total, $18,000,000 is provided 
to restore a shortfall in overtime expenses, and $2,000,000 is 
provided for the purchase of critical equipment.

emergency funds provided under section 9001(a)(2) of the 
Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 to be available during the 
remainder of fiscal year 2006 and fiscal year 2007. The Senate 
did not include a similar provision.

                DEPARTMENT OF LABOR--OFFICE OF JOB CORPS

      The conference agreement deletes without prejudice 
language proposed by the Senate to prohibit the implementation 
of Secretary's Order 09-2006. The House had no similar 
provision. The conferees direct the Department to implement

those program functions previously administered by the Job 
Corps prior to the transfer and to ensure the support necessary 
for oversight and management responsibilities.
      The conferees further expect that, although the Office of 
Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management will 
oversee the procurement process, this arrangement shall not 
alter the existing authorities, duties, or activities of Job 
Corps as it existed prior to the transfer. The Office of Job 
Corps and the Assistant Secretary for Administration and 
Management are directed to maintain controls to assure the 
procurement activities are completely separate from program 
operations. Further, the Department is directed to report to 
the Committees on Appropriations in the House and Senate by

procurement officer with responsibilities for all procurement 
activities in the Department. The report shall include the

expended.

                    SEGAL AMERICORPS EDUCATION AWARD

      Sec. 7014. The conference agreement amends a provision

for the acquisition of any leases, contracts, rights, or other

      The congressional budget resolution agreed to by Congress 
for fiscal year 2006, and both the House and Senate versions of 
the fiscal year 2007 budget resolution, include provisions 
relating to the notification of emergency spending. These 
provisions require a statement of how the emergency provisions 
meet the criteria for emergency spending identified by the 
budget resolutions.
      The conference agreement on this bill contains emergency 
funding for fiscal year 2006 that is related to the global war 
on terror and hurricanes in the Gulf Coast region, and such 
spending is identified throughout the conference report. The 
funding is related to unanticipated needs and is for situations 
that are sudden, urgent, and unforeseen, specifically the 
global war on terror in the aftermath of 9/11, and the 
devastating hurricanes of 2006. These events fit the specific 
criteria for emergencies.

                   Conference Total--With Comparisons
