                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 5515 includes a waiver of the following:
           Clause 4(a) of rule XIII, which prohibits 
        consideration of legislation in the House until the 
        third calendar day on which each report of a committee 
        on that measure or matter has been available to 
        Members, Delegates and the Resident Commissioner. While 
        the Committee on Armed Services filed its report on May 
        15, 2018, the Committee filed a supplemental report, 
        which includes a more comprehensive cost estimate from 
        the Congressional Budget Office. The Committee on Armed 
        Services filed its supplemental report on May 21, 2018.
           Section 306 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
        which prohibits consideration of legislation within the 
        jurisdiction of the Committee on the Budget unless 
        referred to or reported by the Budget Committee.
           Clause 3(e)(1) of rule XIII (``Ramseyer''), 
        & clause 12 of rule XXI, requiring a committee report 
        accompanying a bill amending or repealing statutes to 
        show, by typographical device, parts of statute 
        affected. While both waivers are necessary, it is 
        important to note the two requirements are duplicative.
    The waiver of all points of order against provisions in 
H.R. 5515, as amended, includes a waiver of the following:
           Clause 4 of rule XXI, which prohibits 
        reporting a bill or joint resolution carrying an 
        appropriation from a committee not having jurisdiction 
        to report an appropriation.
           Clause 5(a) of rule XXI, which prohibits a 
        bill or joint resolution carrying a tax or tariff 
        measure from being reported by a committee not having 
        jurisdiction to report tax or tariff measures.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
the amendments to H.R. 5515 or against amendments en bloc 
described in Section 3 of the resolution, the Committee is not 
aware of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in 
nature.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of S. 204, the Committee is not aware of any 
points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    Although the resolution waives all points against provision 
in the bill, the Committee is not aware of any points of order. 
The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
S. 2155 includes a waiver of the following:
           Clause 10 of rule XXI, which prohibits the 
        consideration of a bill if it has the net effect of 
        increasing mandatory spending over the five-year or 
        ten-year period.
           Section 302(f) of the Congressional Budget 
        Act, which prohibits consideration of legislation 
        providing new budget authority in excess of a 302(a) 
        allocation of such authority; and
           Section 311 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
        which prohibits consideration of legislation that would 
        cause the level of total new budget authority for the 
        first fiscal year to be exceeded.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in the bill, the Committee is not aware of any 
points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.

warrior from the other Armed Force to the Air Force to permit 
the wounded warrior to be selected for the program under this 
section.

``wounded warrior'' means a member of the Armed Forces who--

Available Off-the-shelf Items From Certain Laws and 
Regulations.--Not later than one year after the date of the

        of title 41, United States Code, not to exempt

        contracts and subcontracts would otherwise be exempt 
        from under section 1906(d) of title 41, United States 
        Code; and
          (2) propose revisions to the Federal Acquisition 
        Regulation to provide an exemption from each law

        determines that there is a specific reason not to 
        provide the exemptions pursuant to section 1906 of such 
        title or the Administrator for Federal Procurement 
        Policy determines there is a specific reason not to 
        provide the exemption pursuant to section 1907 of such

        regulations required by law or Executive order; and
          (2) propose revisions to the Federal Acquisition 
        Regulation to eliminate regulations reviewed under 
        paragraph (1) unless the Federal Acquisition Regulatory 
        Council determines on a case-by-case basis that there 
        is a specific reason not to eliminate the regulation.

Applicable to Commercially Available Off-the-shelf Item 
Subcontracts.--Not later than one year after the date of the

Council shall--

        assess all regulations that require a prime contractor 
        to include a specific contract clause in a subcontract 
        for commercially available off-the-shelf items unless 
        the inclusion of such clause is required by law or 
        Executive order; and
          (2) propose revisions to the Federal Acquisition 
        Regulation to eliminate regulations reviewed under 
        paragraph (1) unless the Federal Acquisition Regulatory 
        Council determines on a case-by-case basis that there

  At the end of subtitle C of title XII, add the following new 
section:

SEC. 12_. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON BALLISTIC MISSILE PROGRAM OF IRAN.

  It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) the ballistic missile program of Iran represents 
        a serious threat to allies of the United States in the 
        Middle East and Europe, members of the Armed Forces 
        deployed in the those regions, and ultimately the 
        United States;
          (2) the testing and production by Iran of ballistic 
        missiles capable of carrying a nuclear device is a 
        clear violation of multiple United Nations Security 
        Council resolutions, which were unanimously adopted by 
        the international community;
          (3) Iran currently maintains the largest inventory of 
        ballistic missiles in the Middle East;
          (4) according to the Director of National 
        Intelligence, Dan Coats, Iran's ballistic missiles are 
        inherently capable of delivering weapons of mass 
        destruction and the Office of the Director of National 
        Intelligence judges they would be used as Iran's 
        ``preferred method of delivering nuclear weapons, if it 
        builds them'';
          (5) Director of National Intelligence Coats 
        additionally asserts ``Tehran's desire to deter the 
        United States might drive it to field an 
        intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM)'' and 
        ``progress on Iran's space program could shorten a 
        pathway to an ICBM because space launch vehicles use 
        similar technologies''; and
          (6) the Government of the United States should impose 
        tough primary and secondary sanctions against any 
        sector of the economy of Iran or any Iranian person 
        that directly or indirectly supports the ballistic 
        missile program of Iran as well as any foreign person 
        or financial institution that engages in transactions 
        or trade that support that program.

  At the end of subtitle F of title XII, add the following new 
section:

SEC. 12. SENSE OF CONGRESS AND REAFFIRMING THE COMMITMENT OF THE UNITED 
                    STATES TO THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION 
                    (NATO).

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) On April 4, 1949, the North Atlantic Treaty 
        Organization (NATO) was founded with the ideals of 
        democracy, individual liberty, and the desire for 
        peaceful resolutions of disputes.
          (2) For over six decades, NATO has been a successful 
        intergovernmental political and military alliance.
          (3) NATO's collective defense acts as a deterrent to 
        aggression where the alliance defends its Allied 
        countries against external security threats.
          (4) NATO strengthens the security of the United 
        States by utilizing an integrated military coalition.
          (5) While Russia has continued to threaten the 
        sovereignty of countries in Europe and exhibit 
        threatening behavior toward our own military assets, 
        NATO sends a clear collective message that the Alliance 
        will not tolerate Russia's provocation.
          (6) In respect to the changing threats against Europe 
        and the United States since the end of the Cold War, 
        NATO has evolved to take on new dangers including 
        terrorism, the spread of weapons of mass destruction, 
        and cyber attacks.
          (7) After the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks 
        on the United States, NATO invoked Article 5 of the 
        North Atlantic Treaty for the first time in NATO's 
        history to deploy military resources to Afghanistan in 
        support of the United States mission to combat a 
        dangerous terrorist threat.
          (8) NATO aided the United States military by leading 
        the International Security Assistance Force in 
        Afghanistan from August 2003 to 2014, working with 
        Afghan authorities to respond to the terrorist 
        insurgency and to provide effective security across the 
        country.
          (9) NATO continues a civilian-led presence in 
        Afghanistan to strengthen Afghan security forces and 
        institutions to ensure the country can rebuild its 
        security operations and end safe haven for terrorists.
          (10) In November 2002 at the Prague Summit, NATO 
        leaders adopted a Prague package to adapt NATO to the 
        challenge of combating terrorism which included a 
        Military Concept for Defense against Terrorism, a 
        Partnership Action Plan against Terrorism, missile 
        defense, cyber defense, and enhanced intelligence 
        sharing.
          (11) In November 2006 at the Riga Summit, NATO 
        declared that ``terrorism, increasingly global in scope 
        and lethal in results, and the spread of weapons of 
        mass destruction are likely to be the principal threats 
        to the Alliance over the next 10 to 15 years''.
          (12) In July 2016 at the Warsaw Summit, NATO leaders 
        agreed to strengthen the Alliance's military presence 
        in Eastern Europe, declared Initial Operational 
        Capability of NATO's Ballistic Missile Defense to 
        strengthen the defense of Allied countries against 
        ballistic missiles, and recognized cyberspace as a new 
        operational domain.
          (13) The attacks in Paris, France; Berlin, Germany; 
        Istanbul, Turkey; Manchester, England; Barcelona, 
        Spain; and Brussels, Belgium, home of the NATO 
        Headquarters, shows the importance of an international 
        alliance to combat terrorist groups.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) the United States reaffirms its commitment to the 
        North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) as the 
        foundation of transatlantic security and defense;
          (2) NATO serves as a critical coalition in preserving 
        peace and stability in the transatlantic region;
          (3) NATO's continued effort to develop new 
        capabilities and technologies to combat terrorism and a 
        changing international security environment are crucial 
        to enhancing national security and strengthening the 
        United States ability to combat evolving security 
        threats; and
          (4) the United States encourages each NATO member 
        country to meet or exceed the commitment to spend two 
        percent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on defense.
                              ----------

SEC. 12__. SENSE OF CONGRESS RELATING TO INCREASES IN DEFENSE

  It is the sense of Congress that the President, in

defense burden, and international stability, should--
          (1) encourage all member countries of the North 
        Atlantic Treaty Organization (``NATO allies'') to 
        fulfill their commitments to levels and composition of 
        defense expenditures as agreed upon at the NATO 2014 
        Wales Summit and NATO 2016 Warsaw Summit;
          (2) call on NATO allies to finance, equip, and train 
        their armed forces to fulfill their national and 
        regional security interests; and
          (3) recognize NATO allies that are meeting their 
        defense spending commitments or otherwise providing 
        adequately for their national and regional security 
        interests.
