                          House of Representatives,

    Dear Ms. Haas: I enclose herewith a report of the

                                FOREWORD

                              ----------                              

                          House of Representatives,

 December 31, 2018.--Committed to the Committee on the Whole House on 
           the State of the Union and ordered to be printed.

                                _______
                                

           Mr. Royce, from the Committee on Foreign Affairs, 
                        submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

             I. GENERAL REVIEW ACTIVITIES OF THE COMMITTEE


      A. Executive Branch Reports and Congressional Notifications

    Statutory reporting requirements, and the reports submitted 
in response to them, constitute one of the oldest information 
systems used by Congress. On every subject Congress covers, 
required reports offer a way to oversee and review the 
implementation of legislation by the executive branch.
    In the foreign policy field, it is particularly important 
to ensure that reporting requirements and the resultant reports 
submitted by the executive branch are an efficient mechanism 
for supplying Congress with information. Information on 
domestic problems is often easier to obtain from sources 
outside the executive branch than information on problems from 
abroad. Moreover, the executive branch has sometimes attempted 
to shield its activities in the foreign policy field from 
public view and treat it as its exclusive domain. The lack of 
information on foreign policy problems and executive branch 
activities has been one of the major reasons it has been more 
difficult for Congress to play its legitimate role in the 
making of foreign policy, although the Constitution expressly 
shares such powers between Congress and the President.
    For the Committee on Foreign Affairs, the improvement of 
the system of required reports offers more than tidier 
housekeeping. It offers another step toward a better supply of 
information that Congress needs to make foreign policy 
decisions. Through the careful placing of reporting 
requirements in legislation, the patient monitoring of the 
reports submitted by the executive branch in response to the 
requirements and utilization of the data supplied in them, 
Congress can improve its capacity for an effective foreign 
policy role.
    Committee staff also conducts a regular and robust review 
of congressional notifications and reports regarding the 
proposed obligation or reprogramming of funding for various 
program activities by our agencies of jurisdiction. During the 
reporting period, the committee has received 641 notifications 
and reports from the Department of State, 281 from the United 
States Agency for International Development, 114 from the 
Defense Security Cooperation Agency, 33 from the Securities and 
Exchange Commission, 90 from the Department of Defense, 19 from 
the Millennium Challenge Corporation, 9 from the United States 
Trade and Development Agency, and 2 from the Broadcasting Board 
of Governors.

                         B. Reference Documents

    Periodically the Committee on Foreign Affairs compiles, 
prints, and distributes official documents which are useful to 
the membership in exercising the oversight function as well as 
other responsibilities. These include the Legislation on 
Foreign Relations. This 5-volume set is prepared under the 
direction of the staff of the House Committee on Foreign 
Affairs and the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations with the 
assistance of the Foreign Affairs, Defense, and Trade Division 
of the Congressional Research Service of the Library of 
Congress. This collection of laws and related materials 
contains texts referred to by the Committee on Foreign Affairs, 
and the Foreign Relations Committee, amended to date, and 
annotated to show pertinent history or cross references. The 
collection includes all laws concerning foreign relations, 
codified and in force, treaties in force, as well as executive 
agreements and orders, State Department regulations and State 
Department delegations of authorities.
