       JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE

      The managers on the part of the House and Senate at the 
conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on the 
amendment of the Senate to the bill (H.R. 2997), making 
appropriations for Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and 
Drug Administration, and Related Agencies programs for the 
fiscal year ending September 30, 2010 and for other purposes, 
submit the following joint statement to the House and Senate in 
explanation of the effect of the action agreed upon by the 
managers and recommended in the accompanying conference report.

                        CONGRESSIONAL DIRECTIVES

      The statement of the managers remains silent on 
provisions that were in both the House and Senate bills that 
remain unchanged by this conference agreement, except as noted 
in this statement of the managers.
      The conferees agree that executive branch wishes cannot 
substitute for Congress' own statements as to the best evidence 
of congressional intentions--that is, the official reports of 
the Congress. The conferees further point out that funds in 
this Act must be used for the purposes for which appropriated, 
as required by section 1301 of title 31 of the United States 
Code, which provides: ``Appropriations shall be applied only to 
the objects for which the appropriations were made except as 
otherwise provided by law.''
      The House and Senate report language that is not changed 
by the conference is approved by the committee of conference. 
The statement of managers, while repeating some report language 
for emphasis, does not intend to negate the language referred 
to above unless expressly provided herein.
      In cases in which the House or the Senate have directed 
the submission of a report, such report is to be submitted to 
the Committees on Appropriations of the House of 
Representatives and the Senate.
      Hereafter in this statement, ``the Committees'' refers to 
the Committees on Appropriations of the House of 
Representatives and the Senate.

                                TITLE I

                         AGRICULTURAL PROGRAMS

                 Production, Processing, and Marketing

                        Office of the Secretary

      The conference agreement provides $5,285,000 for the 
Office of the Secretary as proposed by the House and the 
Senate.
      The conferees direct the Department to provide within 90 
days after the date of enactment of this Act all reports and 
studies requested in this statement to the Committees in both 
an electronic and hard copy format, unless another date is 
specified for a particular report.
      The conferees are concerned by the lack of timely 
information on the unprecedented demand for the Agricultural 
Credit Insurance Fund programs and the loan programs running 
out of funding half way through the fiscal year. The conferees 
direct the Department to provide quarterly reports to the 
Committees on the status of obligations and funds availability 
for the loan and grant programs provided in this bill. The 
conferees further direct that if an estimate of loan activity 
for any program funded in Titles I and III of this Act 
indicates that a limitation on authority to make commitments 
for a fiscal year will be reached before the end of that fiscal 
year, or in any event whenever 75 per centum of the authority 
to make commitments has been utilized, the Secretary shall 
promptly so notify the Committees.
      The conference agreement includes a number of items to 
enhance the ability of USDA, other federal agencies, and non-
governmental partners to provide humanitarian food assistance 
throughout the world. Both the McGovern-Dole Food for Education 
and the Food for Peace Title II programs receive substantial 
increases from the fiscal year 2009 levels. Also, the 
conference agreement includes $13,000,000, as requested, for 
stabilization and reconstruction assistance in Iraq and 
Afghanistan. In addition, the conference agreement includes 
provisions relating to the development of products for improved 
nutrition and field deployment of food assistance, better use 
of nutrient-fortified foods as a way to improve nutrition and 
reduce short- and long-term health risks (especially of 
children), and to direct the primary federal departments 
responsible for humanitarian food assistance to work jointly to 
effect greater efficiencies in the execution of these programs.
      The conference agreement provides the Farm Service Agency 
and Rural Development with two year availability of Salaries 
and Expenses funding for information technology (IT) spending. 
The Secretary is directed to provide to the Committees a report 
on: the efficacy of this provision in fiscal year 2009 on 
improving the administration and effectiveness of IT spending; 
the amounts carried over from fiscal year 2009; and the 
intended uses of these carryover funds.

                       Office of Tribal Relations

      The conference agreement provides $1,000,000 for the 
Office of Tribal Relations as proposed by the House and the 
Senate.

                          Executive Operations

                     OFFICE OF THE CHIEF ECONOMIST

      The conference agreement provides $13,032,000 for the 
Office of the Chief Economist as proposed by the Senate, 
instead of $12,982,000 as proposed by the House.

                       NATIONAL APPEALS DIVISION

      The conference agreement provides $15,254,000 for the 
National Appeals Division, instead of $15,289,000 as proposed 
by the House and $15,219,000 as proposed by the Senate.

                 OFFICE OF BUDGET AND PROGRAM ANALYSIS

      The conference agreement provides $9,436,000 for the 
Office of Budget and Program Analysis as proposed by the House 
and the Senate.

                      OFFICE OF HOMELAND SECURITY

      The conference agreement provides $1,859,000 for the 
Office of Homeland Security as proposed by the Senate, instead 
of $2,494,000 as proposed by the House. The conference 
agreement provides $750,000 for a protective security detail 
and $115,000 for national intelligence analysis.

                    OFFICE OF ADVOCACY AND OUTREACH

      The conference agreement provides $1,700,000 for the 
Office of Advocacy and Outreach, instead of $3,000,000 as 
proposed by the House and no funding as proposed by the Senate.

                OFFICE OF THE CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICER

      The conference agreement provides $61,579,000 for the 
Office of the Chief Information Officer, instead of $48,541,000 
as proposed by the House and $63,579,000 as proposed by the 
Senate. The conference agreement provides increases of 
$17,000,000 for security assessments, $14,500,000 for security 
tool deployment, and $12,300,000 for the Agriculture and 
Security Operations Center.

                 OFFICE OF THE CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER

      The conference agreement provides $6,566,000 for the 
Office of the Chief Financial Officer as proposed by the 
Senate, instead of $6,466,000 as proposed by the House.
      The conferees continue to be concerned about assessments, 
known as Greenbook charges, that the Department charges its 
agencies for government and department-wide activities, both 
with the level of spending and the lack of transparency in 
funding these activities. The conferees understand that the 
Government Accountability Office (GAO) is completing an audit 
of these activities, and expect that USDA will comply with and 
implement in a timely manner all recommendations of the audit. 
The Department is directed to provide a report to the 
Committees on the steps being taken to implement the GAO 
recommendations and to increase transparency into the funding 
and decision-making mechanisms associated with the Greenbook 
process. In addition, the Department's report should highlight 
steps being taken to evaluate the performance of on-going 
Greenbook activities to determine the benefit to the Department 
of continuing such activities. Finally, the report should 
include a discussion of returning assessments to levels 
consistent with fiscal years 2001 through 2003.

           Office of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights

      The conference agreement provides $895,000 for the Office 
of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights as proposed by the 
Senate, instead of $888,000 as proposed by the House.

                         Office of Civil Rights

      The conference agreement provides $23,922,000 for the 
Office of Civil Rights as proposed by the House, instead of 
$23,422,000 as proposed by the Senate.

          Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration

      The conference agreement provides $806,000 for the Office 
of the Assistant Secretary for Administration as proposed by 
the Senate, instead of $700,000 as proposed by the House.

        Agriculture Buildings and Facilities and Rental Payments

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement provides $293,093,000 for 
Agriculture Buildings and Facilities and Rental Payments, 
instead of $326,482,000 as proposed by the House and 
$274,482,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference 
agreement includes $184,812,000 for rental payments, 
$13,500,000 for Department of Homeland Security building 
security, and $94,781,000 for building operations and 
maintenance.
      The conference agreement includes funds, at the level 
requested, for the proposed lease consolidation. However, given 
the need to have accurate estimates for costs and benefits, the 
conferees direct USDA to conduct an internal review, through 
the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration and 
including the affected agencies, and submit a new cost benefit 
analysis, using updated cost and benefit estimates, to the 
Committees prior to the obligation of any of the funds for this 
purpose.

                     Hazardous Materials Management

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

Departmental Administration as proposed by the Senate, instead 
of $37,319,000 as proposed by the House. The conference 
agreement includes $13,000,000, as requested, for stabilization 
and reconstruction activities in Iraq and Afghanistan. The 
conferees believe that this effort will assist in the 
stabilization and reconstruction of agricultural production in 
these countries and that similar efforts merit consideration 
for regions where chronic and acute hunger has stifled economic 
and social stability and development and where substantial 
resources have been directed in the form of emergency 
assistance.

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

requested, for pay costs, $1,759,000; support for 
investigations of food safety, $500,000; and audits and 
investigations of civil rights issues, $500,000. The conference 
agreement also provides $200,000 for work relating to the

House and the Senate. The conference agreement provides 
increases of $5,750,000 for restoration of the Agricultural 
Chemical Use Program; $1,600,000 to provide a data series on 
bio-energy production and utilization; and $250,000 to complete 
the analysis and summary of, and to continue data collection 
related to, the Organic Production Survey.

                     Agricultural Research Service

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

      The conference agreement provides $1,179,639,000 for the 
Agricultural Research Service (ARS), Salaries and Expenses, 
instead of $1,157,568,000 as proposed by the House and 
$1,181,632,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      The conference agreement does not accept the budget

      The conference agreement includes $5,300,000 for the 
National Animal Identification System (NAIS). After receiving 
$142,000,000 in funding since fiscal year 2004, APHIS has 
registered about 37 percent of all premises, far below what 
should have been achieved given this substantial investment. 
The conferees are concerned that this lack of progress will 
prohibit APHIS from implementing an effective national system 
that would provide needed animal health and livestock market 
benefits. The conferees are aware that USDA recently concluded 
a national listening tour to develop a more comprehensive 
understanding of how to design and deliver a successful animal 
identification system. Now that the listening tour has 
concluded, the conferees expect APHIS to provide the Committees 
with a complete and detailed strategic plan for the program, 
including tangible outcomes, measurable goals, specific 
milestones, and necessary resources for the entire program. 
Given the $5,300,000 investment in this conference agreement 
and the $142,000,000 that Congress has already provided for 
NAIS, the conferees expect APHIS to make demonstrable progress 
in effectively implementing the animal identification system. 
If significant progress is not made, the conferees will 
consider eliminating funding for the program.
      The conference agreement provides $5,188,000 for viral 
hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS). The conferees strongly encourage 
APHIS to prioritize VHS resources to regions where the agency 
has confirmed cases.
      The conference agreement includes $350,000 for the 
Trichinae certification program.
      The conference agreement includes $26,073,000 for 
veterinary diagnostics, which includes an increase of 
$1,657,000.
      The conference agreement includes $158,769,000 for 
Emerging Plant Pests. Included in this amount is $44,656,000 
for citrus health; $33,021,000 for Asian long-horned beetle; 
$22,983,000 for glassy-winged sharpshooter; $5,347,000 for 
sudden oak death; $2,151,000 for Karnal bunt; $37,205,000 for 
emerald ash borer, including an increase of $2,500,000 for 
operations and improved eradication methods; $8,327,000 for 
potato cyst nematode; $1,008,000 for light brown apple moth; 
$1,500,000 for sirex woodwasp; $2,102,000 for miscellaneous 
pests; and $469,000 for varroa mite suppression.
      The conference agreement includes $16,764,000 for bovine 
tuberculosis, which includes $2,000,000 for indemnity and 
depopulation. Bovine tuberculosis funds not necessary to meet 
indemnity and depopulation needs may be used for management and 
control of bovine tuberculosis.

      The conference agreement provides $895,000 for the Office 
of the Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural 
Services as proposed by the Senate, instead of $662,000 as 
proposed by the House.
      The conferees are aware of the impacts to agriculture 
caused by exceptional drought conditions currently faced by 
certain states. The conferees expect the Secretary to use all 
available authorities to provide relief to agricultural 
producers who have incurred drought related losses.
      The conferees direct the Foreign Agricultural Service to 
provide the Committees with a report on the status of the 
agency's reorganization. The report should include a discussion 
of any anticipated modification to existing office structures.
      The conferees recognize that the domestic cut flower 
industry has worked to remain competitive by using the latest 
in horticultural science and experimenting with and growing new 
varieties of flowers. Despite this, the domestic cut flower 
industry has experienced a significant decline in its share of 
the U.S. cut flower market. The conferees urge the Secretary to 
use available resources to support domestic flower growers in 
their efforts to develop an efficient and environmentally 
friendly transportation, storage, and distribution system to 
better compete with foreign producers.

      The conference agreement provides $1,253,777,000 for the 
Farm Service Agency (FSA), Salaries and Expenses, instead of 
$1,248,777,000 as proposed by the House and $1,603,777,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.
      Given the complexity and scale of FSA's information 
technology (IT) improvement initiative, the conferees seek to 
ensure that FSA successfully and cost-effectively delivers the 
modernized systems relevant to the Department's submission 
under Section 300 of OMB Circular A-11. Moreover, the conferees 
recognize that achieving FSA's IT modernization goals depends 
on coordination and integration with other IT initiatives 
across the Department that are beyond FSA's control.
      Accordingly, the conferees direct the Department to 
submit to the Committees a description of how the Department 
will coordinate and oversee the interdependent planning and 
implementation of FSA's IT modernization initiative with all 
other related Department IT modernization initiatives.
      Furthermore, the conferees direct the Department to 
submit to the Committees an expenditure plan for all past-and 
current-year funds allocated for FSA IT systems modernization 
and stabilization activities since fiscal year 2008 that 
describes:
      1. The FSA IT projects funded;
      2. The expected performance capabilities and mission 
benefits of each of these projects;
      3. The estimated and completed project cost, schedule, 
and system operation milestones with target dates;
      4. The estimated and actual costs associated with 
attaining these milestones;
      5. A comparison of the project cost, schedule, and 
milestones to those provided in fiscal year 2008; and
      6. The processes, tools, contracts, and human capital in 
place or planned to accomplish effective management and 
oversight of the projects.
      After the initial expenditure plan, the Department is to 
provide reports by April 1, 2010, and by August 1, 2010, that 
provide updates on the cost, schedule, and system operation 
milestones. To the extent milestones are missed, the report is 
to provide a summary of the reasons why and plans for 
corrective actions.
      The conferees recommend that funds be allocated to 
implement the National Agriculture Imagery Program, with images 
collected nationally on an annual basis, in order to provide 
the maximum benefit for USDA programs and other users of these 
images. The conferees encourage the Secretary to utilize all 
appropriate imagery sources to meet programmatic requirements.

      The Department is directed to work with other appropriate

shall transmit a plan to the Committees to streamline the grant 
process for water and waste water disposal grants for rural 
Alaskan communities and Alaska Native villages. The plan shall 
include an explanation of how it will reduce the paperwork 
burden on rural Alaskan communities and Alaska Native villages 
and the time to process applications and take into account 
logistical issues that affect the construction season, 
including the timing and length of the construction season and

prices for milk. The conferees expect the Secretary to utilize 
these funds in a way that provides actual benefit to dairy 
producers in a timely manner.
