                              Clerk's Note

    This committee print provides a compilation of the enacted 
text and applicable explanatory material for the Omnibus 
Appropriations Act, 2009 (H.R. 1105; P.L. 111-8).
    This Act, which consists of the nine regular annual 
appropriations bills for fiscal year 2009 that were outstanding 
from the prior congress, as well as further provisions related 
to Homeland Security and other matters, is the product of 
negotiations between the House and Senate Appropriations 
Committees that took place before its introduction. The 
compromise measure was introduced as an original bill by 
Chairman Obey on February 23, 2009 and was passed by the House 
without amendment two days later.\1\ The Senate began 
consideration on March 2, and passed the bill without amendment 
by voice vote on March 10.\2\ The President signed the 
legislation on March 11, 2009 and it became Public Law 111-8.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ Vote on passage: 245 yeas-178 nays (Roll No. 86), February 25, 
2009.
    \2\ Senate vote to invoke cloture on the bill: 62 yeas-35 nays 
(Record vote no. 96).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Because the measure was pre-negotiated and the final 
product introduced as an original bill, there is no conference 
report and no ``joint explanatory statement of the managers'' 
for H.R. 1105. Instead, as directed by the House of 
Representatives,\3\ Chairman Obey submitted an Explanatory 
Statement in the Congressional Record of February 23, 2009.\4\ 
Section 4 of the Act provides that this Explanatory Statement 
``shall have the same effect with respect to the allocation of 
funds and implementation of this Act as if it were a joint 
explanatory statement of a committee of conference.'' The text 
of the Explanatory Statement is reproduced in full in this 
committee print.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \3\ H. Res. 92, section 2 (as amended by section 2 of H. Res. 108).
    \4\ The Statement appears on pages H1653-H2599 in the February 23 
Congressional Record.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For the convenience of users, this print is organized 
according to the ten divisions of the Act, with the legislative 
text of each division paired with the applicable portion of the 
Explanatory Statement.

    [Clerk's note: Reproduced below is the material relating to 
division A contained in the ``Explanatory Statement Submitted 
by Mr. Obey, Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations, 
Regarding H.R. 1105, Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009''.]\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ This Explanatory Statement was submitted for printing in the 
Congressional Record on February 23, 2009, prior to House consideration 
of the bill and as directed by the House of Representatives in section 
2 of H. Res. 92 (as amended by section 2 of H. Res. 108). The Statement 
appears in the February 23 Congressional Record, beginning on page 
H1653.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

                               DIVISION A

                     TITLE I--AGRICULTURAL PROGRAMS

                 Production, Processing, and Marketing

                        Office of the Secretary

    The bill provides $5,174,000 for the Office of the 
Secretary.
    The Department is directed to provide within 60 days after 
the date of enactment of this Act all reports and studies 
requested in this statement to the Committees on Appropriations 
of the House of Representatives and the Senate (hereafter 
referred to as ``the Committees'') in both an electronic and 
hard copy format, unless another date is specified for a 
particular report.
    The Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (hereafter 
referred to as ``the 2008 farm bill'') authorized many new 
programs, provided mandatory funding for a select number of 
them, and reauthorized existing programs throughout the 
Department of Agriculture. The Department is directed to submit 
a report detailing the Department's implementation plan for the 
2008 farm bill. The report should include timeframes for 
developing new regulations and estimated dates the Department 
expects to finalize the regulations and implement the new or 
revised programs. The Department is also directed to provide to 
the Committees all reports requested in the 2008 farm bill.
    There is concern that agencies are being required, after 
appropriations have been enacted for other purposes, to support 
E-Gov and PART studies. This diminishes, delays, or eliminates 
the implementation of the activities for which funds were 
provided. Thirty days prior to any centrally determined charges 
being applied to any USDA agency that are different from those 
amounts displayed in the budget justification materials, the 
Department must submit to the Committees a detailed explanation 
of the amounts assessed and the method for determining those 
amounts.
    There continues to be strong support in Congress for 
programs that provide emergency food assistance throughout the 
world and that work to achieve sustainable food security. Among 
those programs is the Borlaug Dialogue (and its associated 
functions), which provides a forum for world leadership related 
to international food assistance. The Secretary is encouraged 
to support this activity and to ensure that the Department 
maintains a strong role in the fight against world hunger.

Secretary for Civil Rights.

                         Office of Civil Rights

    The bill provides $21,551,000 for the Office of Civil 
Rights.

          Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration

    The bill provides $687,000 for the Office of the Assistant 
Secretary for Administration.

        Agriculture Buildings and Facilities and Rental Payments

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

directed to provide a report to the Committees describing the 
current status of the laboratory's facilities and research. 
Additionally, the agency shall assess no fewer than two 
locations that could serve as the new location of ABADRL. When 
selecting the locations to assess, ARS should consider the 
facilities, capacity, expertise, and synergies relevant to 
fulfilling and expediting the ABADRL mission that are offered 
by each potential location. The report should include a 
comparative cost analysis.
    Funds made available for the Center for Agroforestry should 
be used to continue research into all five temperate-zone 
agroforestry practices applicable in Midwestern states.
    The National Animal Disease Center (NADC) is an important 
component in the nation's animal disease research 
infrastructure, but it is in need of office, laboratory, and 
information technology equipment and designated animal space. 
The Department is encouraged to begin providing these items out 
of the funds made available in this bill. If they are not, a

    Funds provided for APHIS in this bill accept all transfers 
of funds proposed in the budget request. These transfers 
include the following: $4,634,000 from ``Foreign Animal 
Disease/FMD'' and $10,936,000 from ``Trade Issues Resolution 
and Management'' into ``Overseas Technical and Trade 
Operations''; $1,481,000 from ``Trade Issues Resolution and 
Management'' into ``Import/Export''; $51,047,000 from ``Highly

into ``Emergency Management Systems''; and $3,722,000 from 
``Emergency Management Systems'' into ``National Veterinary 
Stockpile''.
    APHIS is drafting a final rule that would allow the agency 
to approve, after pest risk analysis, certain new fruits and 
vegetables for interstate movement, subject to meeting one or 
any combination of five specific designated measures. APHIS is 
encouraged to consider allowing shipment of untreated fruits 
and vegetables grown in Hawaii to cold-weather states during 
winter months if Hawaii has specific measures in place to meet 
the standards set in the final rule and can reasonably ensure 
that potential transshipment of such produce will not 
jeopardize the phytosanitary standards of warm weather states.
    The bill includes $9,907,000 for Cattle Fever Ticks, 
including an increase of $2,074,000 to initiate the five-year 
strategic plan to assist in moving the Cattle Fever Tick 
quarantine zone south of the U.S. border.
    The bill includes $62,320,000 for Fruit Fly Exclusion and 
Detection, including an increase of $1,000,000 to enhance the 
Guatemala-Mexico Medfly barrier.
    The bill includes $129,180,000 for Animal Health Monitoring 
and Surveillance, including $14,500,000, an increase of 
$4,713,000, for the National Animal Identification System 
(NAIS). Given this investment, coupled with the almost 
$128,000,000 that Congress has already provided for NAIS, APHIS 
is expected to make demonstrable progress with effectively 
implementing the animal identification system. Accordingly, 
APHIS is directed to meet the following species traceability 
objectives that are derived from the agency's final 2008 animal 
disease traceability business plan:
    --Cattle: By March 1, 2009, identify 30 percent of the 
nation's cattle population to premises of origin within 48 
hours of a disease event.
    --Goats: By October 1, 2009, identify 90 percent of goat 
breeding herds to their birth premises within 48 hours of a 
disease event.
    --Poultry: By July 1, 2009, achieve 98 percent traceability 
in the commercial poultry industry through the identification 
of commercial production units in the required radius within 48 
hours of a disease event.
    --Sheep: By October 1, 2009, identify 90 percent of sheep 
breeding flock to their birth premises within 48 hours of a 
disease event.
    --Swine: By February 1, 2009, achieve 80 percent 
traceability in the commercial swine industries through the 
identification of commercial production units in the required 
radius within 48 hours of a disease event.
    In addition, APHIS is directed to meet the following 
program administration milestones that are similarly derived 
from the final 2008 animal disease traceability business plan:
    --By February 1, 2009: Publish proposed rulemaking to 
consider establishing the seven-character PIN as the national 
location identifier standard and establish the ``840'' Animal 
Identification Number as the single version for the numbering 
system.
    --By February 1, 2009: Incorporate the NAIS-compliant 
premises identification number format into existing Federal 
disease program activities.
    --By May 1, 2009: Publish proposed rulemaking to consider 
using a premises identification number, in the NAIS-compliant 
format, for import/export facilities, the destination of 
imported livestock and the location of exported animals prior 
to the assembly.
    There is concern that APHIS removed a key outcome milestone 
from its final animal disease traceability business plan that 
assessed the agency's progress on integrating tracking 
databases maintained by States and private organizations. APHIS 
is directed to submit a report to the Committees that explains 
why the agency dropped this important milestone from its final 
business plan. APHIS is further directed to provide an update 
on its current progress with fully integrating the Animal Trace 
Processing System with non-Federal tracking databases.
    APHIS is directed to submit a report to the Committees 
within one week after each of the milestone dates outlining the 
status of each species traceability objective and program 
administration milestone and the reason the deadline was not 
met.
    The bill includes $13,694,000 for Animal and Plant Health 
Regulatory Enforcement, including an increase of $1,111,000 to 
hire and train seven new investigators to address increased 
violations at major ports of entry referred by U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection.

apple moth; $1,500,000 for Sirex woodwasp; $2,092,000 for 
miscellaneous pests; and $469,000 for varroa mite suppression.
    APHIS is directed to work with the City of Chicago to 
manage the infestation of emerald ash borer and provide 
appropriate resources.
    APHIS is encouraged to use the funding provided for sudden 
oak death to address immediate needs in the recognized 
containment and control areas, to promote the research, 
development, and testing of new systems of nursery pest and 
disease management, and for programs of inspection and 
regulation.
    This bill includes $1,001,000 for the light brown apple 
moth (LBAM) program. In fiscal years 2007 and 2008, 
approximately $90,000,000 in Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) 
funds and $993,000 in appropriated funds had been made 
available for LBAM. Of this amount, $43,800,000 in CCC funding, 
as well as the $993,000 in appropriated funding, remain 
available in fiscal year 2009 to continue APHIS's efforts. The 
Secretary is encouraged to utilize all funds necessary from CCC 
to carry out the recommendation of the USDA science advisory 
panel to eradicate LBAM in California.
    The bill includes $5,552,000 for the grasshopper program. 
APHIS may use funds provided for Mormon cricket activities in 
Utah for eradication and control of black grass bug in Utah.
    A portion of the funding provided for the oral rabies 
vaccination funding should be made available for activities in 
the Appalachian region.
    Due to a new occurrence of bovine tuberculosis in New 
Mexico, the Secretary is encouraged to use authorities and 
resources of the Department to provide testing, monitoring, 
surveillance, and other services as needed toward the control 
and eradication of this disease, and for the prompt restoration 
of split-state status for New Mexico.
    APHIS is expected to make the fiscal year 2009 funding for 
beaver control in Mississippi available to all counties in the 
state.
    Sericea lespedeza is an important field crop in the 
southeastern United States. Sericea lespedeza also poses 
environmental challenges to ecosystems in tall grass prairie 
lands in the Great Plains region. APHIS is encouraged to 
collaborate with conservation programs in the Great Plains 
region where sericea lespedeza is an invasive species to find 
economically and ecologically appropriate approaches.
    The bill includes $12,877,000 for Biotechnology Regulatory 
Services, including an increase of $1,000,000 for the 
Biotechnology Quality Management System.
    APHIS is currently evaluating a theobromine and caffeine 
mixture as a possible tool for predation management. APHIS is 
encouraged to continue evaluating this method, conduct field 
studies, and take the appropriate steps to register these 
compounds with the Environmental Protection Agency.
    The bill includes $5,725,000 for Physical/Operational 
Security, including an increase of $1,564,000 to increase 
security at critical facilities.
    The following is a list of Congressionally-designated 
projects:

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]


                        BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES

    The bill provides $4,712,000 for Animal and Plant Health 
Inspection Service, Buildings and Facilities.

                     Agricultural Marketing Service

                           MARKETING SERVICES

    The bill provides $86,711,000 for the Agricultural 
Marketing Service (AMS), Marketing Services.
    The bill provides an increase of $9,600,000 to the agency's 
Marketing Services program in order to implement and enforce 
labeling requirements for all covered commodities under the 
country of origin labeling (COOL) law.
    After the release of the interim final rule for COOL in 
September 2008, concerns were raised about USDA's 
interpretation of congressional intent regarding the labeling 
of packaged meat of domestic and foreign origin. As USDA 
publishes a final rule and begins enforcement in April 2009, 
the Department is directed to effectively enforce the food 
labeling law.
    The bill includes $3,867,000 for the National Organic 
Program. USDA is implementing draft revisions to the National 
Organic Program resulting from the American National Standards 
Institute 2004 audit and USDA Office of Inspector General 2005 
audit. AMS is directed to report to the Committees on the 
status of these revisions. It is appreciated that the 
Department has moved forward with the long-overdue proposed 
rule on access to pasture, and the Department is strongly 
encouraged to thoroughly review public comments on the subject.
    The bill provides $4,766,000 to continue the 
Microbiological Data Program (MDP). In its 2009 budget request, 
the Administration criticized MDP for not providing 
epidemiologically valuable data to support risk assessments 
because the survey was ``blinded'' and did not collect 
necessary information. However, AMS's January 2008 report to 
the Committees stated that if the program could begin 
collecting specific information to trace the origin of samples, 
the resulting survey data would be more useful to the Food and 
Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention. The agency's letter also noted that recent food 
borne illness outbreaks demonstrate that a lack of information 
undermines consumer confidence and causes considerable economic 
impact to the agricultural industry. In order to provide more 
valuable information and improve the program's public health 
effectiveness, AMS is directed to begin collecting origin of 
sample data.
    AMS is encouraged to provide appropriate technical and 
financial assistance to the Windy City Harvest Initiative and 
to the Iowa Buy Fresh/Buy Local Program.

                 LIMITATION ON ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

    The bill includes a limitation of $62,888,000 for 
Limitation on Administrative Expenses.

    FUNDS FOR STRENGTHENING MARKETS, INCOME, AND SUPPLY (SECTION 32)

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

    The bill provides $17,270,000 for Funds for Strengthening 
Markets, Income, and Supply.
    In addition, the bill provides $10,000,000 for the Web-
based Supply Chain Management system.

                   PAYMENTS TO STATES AND POSSESSIONS

    The bill provides $1,334,000 for Payments to States and 
Possessions.

        Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $40,342,000 for the Grain Inspection, 
Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA), Salaries and 
Expenses.
    The bill provides an increase of $1,160,000 for the Packers 
and Stockyards program to support GIPSA's reorganization effort 
and to strengthen the agency's enforcement activities. GIPSA is 
directed to use the additional resources to enhance its 
compliance reviews and investigations capabilities, as well as 
to support an increase in the agency's auditing of the largest 
meat packers.
    GIPSA must submit a report that provides details for the 
how the agency will deploy its resources for Packers and 
Stockyards Act enforcement. The report should include a 
description of the goals for addressing violations of the Act 
and packer audits, as well as key measures that the agency will 
use to track whether the additional funding is providing a 
measurable improvement in performance.

        LIMITATION ON INSPECTION AND WEIGHING SERVICES EXPENSES

    The bill includes a limitation of $42,463,000 for 
Limitation on Inspection and Weighing Services Expenses.

             Office of the Under Secretary for Food Safety

    The bill provides $613,000 for the Office of the Under 
Secretary for Food Safety.

                   Food Safety and Inspection Service

    The bill provides $971,566,000 for the Food Safety and 
Inspection Service (FSIS).
    The bill provides the full increase requested in the budget 
and the full estimated costs for fiscal year 2009 for 
implementation of the new interstate shipment and catfish 
inspection provisions in sections 11015 and 11016, 
respectively, of the 2008 farm bill. In addition, the bill 
provides an increase of $2,000,000 for strengthened enforcement 
of the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act.
    The Department is commended for the announcement that it 
intends to move forward with closing the loophole in the 
current rule governing non-ambulatory cattle and is strongly 
urged to expedite the rules process and close this loophole 
immediately.
    The Department is currently reviewing several proposals to 
increase maximum line speeds at chicken slaughter facilities. 
FSIS is directed to make any analysis conducted by the agency 
on increasing maximum line speeds, and the effects such changes 
might have on food and employee safety, available to the 
Committees within 30 days.
    There remain very serious concerns about contaminated foods 
from China and therefore the bill retains language prohibiting 
FSIS from using funds to move forward with rules that would 
allow for the importation of poultry products from China into 
the U.S. It is noted that China has enacted revisions to its 
food safety laws. USDA is urged to submit a report to the 
Committees on the implications of those changes on the safety 
of imported poultry products from China within one year. The 
Department is also directed to submit a plan of action to the 
Committees to guarantee the safety of poultry products from 
China. Such plan should include the systematic audit of 
inspection systems, and audits of all poultry and slaughter 
facilities that China would certify to export to the U.S. The 
plan also should include the systematic audit of laboratories 
and other control operations, expanded port-of-entry 
inspection, and creation of an information sharing program with 
other major countries importing poultry products from China 
that have conducted audits and plant inspections among other 
actions. This plan should be made public on the Food Safety and 
Inspection Service web site upon its completion.

    The bill provides $646,000 for the Office of the Under 
Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services.
    The 2008 farm bill authorized the temporary cost-share 
Durum Wheat Quality Program between growers and USDA to offset 
part of the cost of fungicide applications for scab until 
genetic resistance is found. USDA is encouraged to develop 
rules and regulations for this program and report to the 
Committees on the status of program implementation.

                         CONSERVATION PROGRAMS


  Office of the Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment

    The bill provides $758,000 for the Office of the Under 
Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment.

                 Natural Resources Conservation Service


                        CONSERVATION OPERATIONS

    The bill provides $853,400,000 for Conservation Operations.
    There is significant concern in the wake of the Natural 
Resources Conservation Service's (NRCS) first stand-alone 
financial audit. The November 2008 audit presented a 
``disclaimer of opinion'' on NRCS's consolidated financial 
statements for fiscal year 2008, which means that NRCS was not 
able to provide the necessary information that the auditors 
needed to be able to express an opinion about the state of the 
agency's accounts. In the spectrum of possible findings, a 
disclaimer of opinion is potentially the weakest outcome 
because an agency has been found to be unable to adequately 
account for its financial transactions and program activities. 
The auditors uncovered five material weaknesses and several 
other deficiencies in the agency's financial management 
controls. This result, coupled with hundreds of millions of 
dollars in funds for contracts and conservation projects that 
the agency has had to cancel over the past two fiscal years, 
raises significant questions about not only NRCS's financial 
management systems, but also its program management and 
delivery capabilities.
    Because NRCS is responsible for disbursing billions of 
dollars on an annual basis, ensuring the financial integrity of 
the agency's management systems is critical. The process of 
reviewing its books and accounting for various financial 
controls is valuable; NRCS may ultimately improve program 
delivery and performance as it rethinks how it manages its 
money.
    Accordingly, NRCS must submit a report to the Committees 
that details how the agency is responding to the 2008 audit 
findings so that it does not receive a second disclaimer of 
opinion in its fiscal year 2009 audit. The report should detail 
a recovery plan, with milestones, for how NRCS will address all 
of the deficiencies identified in the 2008 audit. Finally, the 
report should detail a plan to improve its program delivery to 
ensure that all funds that Congress provides for conservation 
are used in a timely, accurate, and cost-effective manner.
    Furthermore, the bill provides $10,000,000 in Conservation 
Technical Assistance to strengthen the agency's program and 
financial management capabilities. NRCS is expected to 
appropriately use these additional funds to enhance the 
agency's budgeting, accounting, contracting, and information 
technology systems, as well as program delivery oversight and 
accountability. NRCS must submit an expenditure plan to the 
Committees within 60 days of enactment of this Act for how the 
agency will use the additional funds with an explanation for 
how the expenditures will strengthen the agency's performance.
    The 2008 farm bill made substantive changes to the design 
and intended performance of the Conservation Stewardship 
Program (CSP). There is concern, however, that the redesigned 
program may place greater program delivery burdens on NRCS's 
field staff and overlay additional complex requirements on top 
of other conservation priorities.
    As NRCS prepares the design and delivery of the 
reauthorized program, the agency is directed to submit an 
assessment of the former program's performance to the 
Committees. The report should describe progress made in 
estimating CSP's environmental performance and detail the 
program's environmental outcomes. The report should compare the 
cost effectiveness of CSP relative to other NRCS implemented 
programs, including Conservation Technical Assistance and other 
programs authorized by the farm bill. Finally, the report 
should detail how the new program that the Administration will 
implement will improve upon the cost efficiency and 
environmental performance of its predecessor.
    It is understood that the President's budget maintains the 
activities of the National Water Management Center in Little 
Rock, Arkansas, from within the funds provided in the 
Conservation Operations account.
    Funding for fiscal year 2008 projects is not continued in 
fiscal year 2009 unless specifically mentioned in the following 
table. The following funds are directed to be used in 
cooperative agreements continued with the same cooperator 
entities as in the fiscal year 2008 agreements, except as 
noted.
    The following is a list of Congressionally-designated 
projects:

Account.
    The bill provides for an estimated loan program level of 
$21,678,000; $9,135,000 for loan subsidies; and $9,134,000 for

    Section 516 (j) of the Housing Act of 1949 directs the 
Secretary to use up to 10 percent of the amounts available in 
any fiscal year to provide financial assistance to encourage 
the development of farm labor housing projects. USDA has used 
this authority only on an intermittent basis. For this reason, 
the Department is directed that 10 percent of section 516 grant 
funds be allocated by the Rural Housing Service for technical 
assistance for farm labor housing. The Department is directed 
to provide a report to the Committees detailing the amount made 
available for technical assistance in fiscal years 2008 and 
2009.

Department has financed almost 36,000 units for over 
$1,200,000,000. Yet, the Department has little information on 
the physical or financial status of the projects. An assessment 
of these units would provide information on the physical 
condition of projects, their financial status, occupancy issues 
and other management and compliance issues confronting 
management of developments financed under the farm labor 
housing program. The Government Accountability Office is 
directed to conduct an assessment of the properties financed

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

    The bill provides $556,268,000 for the Rural Water and 
Waste Disposal Program Account.
    The 2008 farm bill mandates the procedure the Department 
will use to determine poverty and intermediate borrower 
interest rates for direct Water and Waste Disposal Facility 
loans. Borrowers in this program will be required to rely more 
heavily on debt and less on grants.
    Under these provisions, there is a concern that needed 
program resources will not be delivered to the poorest, most 
remote communities currently served. The bill provides the same 
level of budget authority as in 2008 and the Secretary is 
expected to deliver at least the same total program level to 
communities with similar socio-economic and geographic 
characteristics as would have been served in 2008 absent this 
change. The Secretary shall provide a report to the Committees 
detailing how the Secretary plans to implement these 
directives. This report should include quantitative measures 
proposed to determine the socio-economic and geographic 
characteristics of communities served. The report should also 
identify benchmarks to evaluate if in fact communities of 
similar characteristics are being served. By November 1, 2009, 
the Secretary shall provide a comprehensive analysis and report 
to the Committees, utilizing these measures and benchmarks, to 
determine the results of this change in law. The Secretary is 
further directed to submit quarterly reports to the Committees 
on the distribution of funds between loans and grants, 
beginning one month after enactment of this Act.
    With reference to water and waste disposal systems grants 
for Native Americans, including Native Alaskans and the 
Colonias, the Secretary is directed to provide a report to the 
Committees that identifies the specific areas in which water 
and waste disposal program resources have been provided, where 
additional resources are most needed, the 2009 distribution of 
resources, and the relative costs of program delivery to the 
various areas and regions covered by the authorities identified 
for use of these specific funds.
    The Department is expected to continue to provide support 
for the National Drinking Water Clearinghouse through the water 
and waste technical assistance and training grant program.

    Section 6113 of the 2008 farm bill requests a study on 
rural electric power generation. In addition to the findings 
requested in the 2008 farm bill, the Secretary is directed to 
provide additional information in the study to include 
examinations of: (1) the impact of the source on the 
environment; (2) options and recommendations for meeting 
electric power needs in rural America through energy efficiency 
and demand management measures, including identification of 
available financing sources and amounts; (3) options and 
recommendations for meeting electric power needs in rural 
America through renewable energy sources, including

                         DOMESTIC FOOD PROGRAMS


Office of the Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services

    The bill provides $610,000 for the Office of the Under 
Secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services.
    There continues to be concern about privatization of the 
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program in Indiana and the 
Secretary is directed to continue comprehensive oversight of 
this effort. The Secretary is further directed to continue 
providing the Committees with quarterly reports on this 
contract, including the effects on enrollment, program access, 
error rates, and spending on administrative expenses. The 
quarterly reports should also include the monthly Indiana 
Program Operations Data reports required by USDA as well as the 
Department's analysis of these reports. The Secretary is 
directed to delay further expansion of the project if the 
state's program does not meet basic program integrity and 
access standards or if performance standards as stated in the 
contract are not met.
    Section 4307 of the 2008 farm bill requires the Secretary 
to carry out a nationally representative survey of the foods 
purchased during the most recent school year for which data is 
available by school authorities participating in the school 
lunch program. The Secretary is directed to provide to the 
Committees additional information that studies the differences 
between foods purchased for the school lunch program by school 
food authorities that directly manage the school lunch program 
and those contracted out to food service management companies.
    The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is directed to provide 
a report to the Committees evaluating the impact that nutrition 
education is having on preventing obesity and improving the 
likelihood that eligible low-income people will make healthy 
food choices within a limited budget. The report shall include 
which programs this nutrition education is funded through, how 
much was provided in fiscal years 2007 and 2008 for each 
program, and a description of all guidance materials and policy 
documents that were developed with this funding in fiscal years 
2007 and 2008.
    The Department is directed to provide the Committees with a 
report on federal activity related to metropolitan areas 
regarding links between the nutrition programs and small and 
local agricultural producers.

SPECIAL SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION PROGRAM FOR WOMEN, INFANTS, AND CHILDREN 
                                 (WIC)

    The bill provides $6,860,000,000 for the Special 
Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children 
(WIC). The bill includes $14,850,000 for continuation of the 
breastfeeding peer counselor program.
    The amount provided in the bill takes into account several 
changes from the budget request.
    First, both food cost and participation estimates have 
increased significantly since the budget request was submitted 
in February. USDA's Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for 
Women, Infants and Children December 2008 Report to Congress 
assumes WIC participation will be nearly 9.1 million per month, 
as opposed to 8.6 million assumed in the President's budget 
request. It further assumes that monthly food costs will be 
$44.94, as opposed to $43.55 included in the President's budget 
request. These new assumptions result in a budget shortfall of 
$455,000,000, according to the December report.
    Second, the bill again does not include a limitation on 
State nutrition services and administration (NSA) grants as 
proposed in the budget and assumed in the December report. The 
budget request included a reduction of $150,000,000 associated 
with this limitation, although there is concern that the 
estimate is insufficient. Therefore, the bill provides 
$180,000,000 to ensure NSA grants are fully funded. Reducing 
support for critical WIC services including nutrition 
education, obesity prevention, breastfeeding promotion and 
support, healthcare referrals, and immunization screening is 
not a wise or acceptable method of achieving budget savings.
    Third, although the budget request states that the funding 
request for WIC includes $150,000,000 to restore the 
contingency fund, this is a disingenuous statement. The budget 
request assumes the use of the entire contingency fund to 
maintain WIC participation. No funding is requested in the 
President's budget that would be available for unforeseen 
events, which is the purpose of a contingency fund. Therefore, 
the WIC funding level is currently estimated to be sufficient 
to meet program needs, and includes an additional $125,000,000 
to restore the contingency fund.
    Food cost and participation estimates continue to change, 
and USDA is continuing to monitor estimates and provide monthly 
updates. This situation will be monitored and additional action 
will be taken as necessary to ensure that funding provided in 
fiscal year 2009 is sufficient to serve all eligible 
applicants.
    The Department is directed to continue providing monthly 
reports to the Committees on the program performance and 
estimated funding requirements to fully fund the WIC program.

               SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

    The bill provides $53,969,246,000 for the supplemental 
nutrition assistance program. Included in this amount is a 
reserve of $3,000,000,000, to remain available until September 
30, 2010.
    The bill includes $48,843,897,000 for program expenses, 
$1,760,435,000 for grants to Puerto Rico, $114,914,000 for the 
Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations, and 
$250,000,000 for commodity purchase for the Emergency Food 
Assistance Program.
    Included in the recommended level for other program costs 
are $500,000 to increase assistance for USDA's Center for 
Nutrition Policy and Promotion in the development and 
maintenance of MyPyramid and Dietary Guidelines materials in 
support of nutrition education for the eligible population; an 
increase of $3,000,000 for payment accuracy and cooperative 
services, retailer integrity and trafficking, and computer 
support; and an increase of $500,000 for program evaluation and 
modernization.
    Many low-income communities in urban centers, rural areas, 
and Tribal communities have the highest rates of diet-related 
diseases, such as diabetes and obesity. These communities also 
have poor access to healthy, affordable, and fresh foods in 
retail grocery stores, which can limit the real healthy food 
choices available to their families and children. The 
Department is encouraged to lead an interagency review of 
factors contributing to a lack of access to healthy foods and 
recommend ways to address these issues through existing 
government programs as well as private sector solutions. The 
Department is directed to study the issue of food desserts in 
low-income communities and issue a report to the Committees no 
later than eighteen months from the date of enactment of this 
Act.
    FNS is directed to provide a report to the Committees on 
the feasibility of installing electronic benefit transfer 
machines at all of the district or county farmers markets 
across the country.
    The Secretary is encouraged to continue the purchase of 
bison from producer-owned and Native American owned 
cooperatives for the Food Distribution Program on Indian 
Reservations. Although funding is not provided specifically for 
bison purchase, historically these purchases have been 
important for the Native American population both economically 
and nutritionally.

                      COMMODITY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

    The bill provides $230,800,000 for the Commodity Assistance 
Program.
    Of that amount, the bill provides $160,430,000 for the 
Commodity Supplemental Food Program. It is expected that with 
this funding level, 2008 participation will be maintained.
    The bill provides $49,500,000 for administrative funding 
for the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). In addition, 
the bill grants the Secretary authority to transfer up to an 
additional 10 percent from TEFAP commodities for this purpose.
    The bill provides $19,800,000 for the Farmers' Market 
Nutrition Program and the Secretary is directed to obligate 
these funds within 45 days.

                   NUTRITION PROGRAMS ADMINISTRATION

    The bill provides $142,595,000 for Nutrition Programs 
Administration.
    FNS awarded a contract to the National Academy of Sciences' 
Institute of Medicine (IOM) for review of National School Lunch 
Program and School Breakfast Program meal patterns in February 
2008. In September 2008, the contract was modified to also 
include an examination of meal patterns in the Child and Adult 
Care Food Program (CACFP). A Phase I report outlining an 
approach to the analysis for school lunch and school breakfast 
was released in December 2008, and a set of recommendations for 
lunch and breakfast in a Phase II report is scheduled for 
publication in October 2009. The IOM Committee will then focus 
on meal patterns for the CACFP, with recommendations scheduled 
for publication in October 2010. FNS is directed to provide 
periodic updates as appropriate to the Committees.
    FNS is directed to make all policy documents related to the 
WIC program (including, but not limited to, instructions, 
memoranda, guidance, and questions and answers) available to 
the public on the internet within one week of their release to 
state WIC administrators.

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

    The bill provides $165,436,000 for the Foreign Agricultural 
Service (FAS), Salaries and Expenses.
    The OIG highlighted in its 2007 Management Challenges 
report that one of USDA's top challenges is to develop a 
``proactive, integrated strategy to assist agricultural 
producers to meet global trade challenges.'' In light of this 
major management hurdle, concerns exist about a number of OIG's 
recent findings regarding FAS's market development programs.
    In 2007, OIG reviewed the extent to which FAS's market 
development programs help to expand trading opportunities for 
U.S. agricultural products. In addition, the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) also reviewed FAS's market 
development programs in 2005. The two offices expressed concern 
that the programs could not provide assurance that they were 
effective or served a clear need. The offices also stated that 
the programs subsidized entities that may not need government 
funding and that the programs may not even provide useful 
information to U.S. exporting companies.
    The government's investments in market development and 
trade promotion activities should be cost effective and achieve 
measurable outcomes. Accordingly, FAS is directed to submit to 
the Committees a report that details how the agency has 
addressed OIG's recommendations and implemented management 
reforms; the results that newly instituted management reforms 
have had on program performance and accountability; and how FAS 
oversees the performance of grants and contracts funded through 
its market development programs, including the Market Access 
Program.
    Funding is provided to continue the Cochran Fellows program 
at historical levels.
    The bill provides $1,000,000 for the Borlaug International 
Agricultural Science and Technology Fellows Program.

    Appropriation.......................................   1,225,900,000

    The 2008 farm bill contained a provision mandating that a 
minimum level of Public Law 480 Title II resources be used for 
non-emergency assistance ($375,000,000 in fiscal year 2009), 
thereby creating a ``safe-box'' for non-emergency funds. FAS is 
directed to immediately notify the Committees once a 
determination is made that the need for emergency assistance 
will exceed the amount available.
    The Secretary, in consultation with the Administrator of 
the U.S. Agency for International Development, is directed to 
submit quarterly reports to the Committees on the status of the 
Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust, as well as notify the 
Committees when the Trust has been drawn down.

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

    The Food and Drug Administration has received significant 
increases in appropriated funds over the past several years. 
Specifically, the agency received an increase of $145,093,000, 
or nine percent, in the fiscal year 2008 appropriations act. An 
additional $150,000,000 in supplemental funding was provided to 
the agency during fiscal year 2008. This bill provides an 
increase of $324,672,000, or 19 percent, above the fiscal year 
2008 funding level.
    It is expected that these substantial funding increases 
will lead to significant improvements in food and medical 
product safety. FDA should also build on these improvements by 
taking broader approaches to addressing safety issues. In the 
foods area, for example, FDA might focus on the identification 
of the most significant food safety hazards, prioritized by 
risk and the ability to reduce such risks, and develop a plan 
with findings, resources and tools to address those specific 
risks. Further, FDA could do a compliance audit for a whole 
category of foods with significant safety issues, providing the 
agency with a much more complete understanding of their risks 
and what needs to be done to address them. This approach could 
have helped FDA in the investigation into the Salmonella 
outbreak during the summer of 2008, which originally focused on 
tomatoes before additional evidence suggested that peppers may 
have been the source of the contamination. This audit approach 
also could be taken in other product areas, especially with 
regard to foreign drug facilities.
    To ensure that FDA efficiently applies this funding 
increase to its most pressing needs, FDA is directed to provide 
an expenditure report to the Committees no later than 15 days 
after the end of each fiscal year quarter following the date of 
enactment of this Act. This report shall include specific 
information for:
    --The number of new hires and their estimated costs;
    --The number of inspections and their estimated costs; and
    --Information technology acquisition and development 
spending.
    All cost estimates and spending in the quarterly reports 
must be shown on a center/field basis.
    To provide a basis of comparison for the new activities in 
these reports, FDA is directed to include information on base 
funding, FTEs, inspections, and any other applicable base 
activity levels for each activity that has received increased 
funding. Finally, the reports must include up-to-date dollar 
obligation data for each enhanced activity.
    The bill provides an increase of $54,531,000 for cost of 
living adjustments instead of $25,000,000 as requested in the 
budget. The amount provided reflects the full estimated cost 
associated with maintaining FDA's current staff levels in light 
of the hiring surge undertaken by the agency in fiscal year 
2008. The bill provides an increase of $3,739,000 for rental 
payments to the General Services Administration.
    The bill includes an increase of $141,526,000 for 
activities related to food safety. An increase of more than 
$55,000,000 for food safety was provided in fiscal year 2008, 
and FDA received an additional $72,000,000 in supplemental 
funds during fiscal year 2008 for food safety related 
activities. It is expected that this funding will result in 
increased safety measures for both domestic and imported food 
from production to consumption.
    Specifically, these funding increases will, at a minimum, 
provide FDA with the capability to:
    --Significantly increase the number of domestic and 
foreign, risk-based, food production and/or processing facility 
inspections (and other high-risk products), significantly 
increase the number of import food field exams, and achieve 
greater laboratory capacity to support increases in risk-based 
inspections and sampling of domestic and imported foods;
    --Develop and deploy risk-based screening technologies that 
will allow FDA to target high-risk products at the border;
    --Identify, develop and deploy new screening tools and 
methods to identify pathogens and other contaminants, including 
more rapid screening tools to be used by field investigators 
and analysts;
    --Establish an early warning surveillance and notification 
system to identify adulteration of the pet food supply and 
outbreaks of illnesses associated with pet food;
    -- Enhance FDA's national food emergency system, allowing 
FDA to develop a risk communication strategy that would result 
in more rapid responses and reductions in the risk of consumer 
contamination when food contamination occurs;
    --Expand its presence in foreign countries. FDA recently 
opened its first foreign office in China. With this increase, 
FDA will be able to establish FDA offices in other foreign 
locations, as appropriate. These offices are intended to 
enhance the ability of FDA inspectors to enter foreign food 
facilities and to gain a greater understanding of manufacturing 
processes overseas, resulting in more rapid identification of 
and response to any potential food safety issues. The FDA also 
will be able to assess the ability of foreign government 
systems to manage food safety risks;
    --Enhance FDA's traceability capabilities for more rapid 
and precise product tracking, which will allow FDA to contain 
contaminated product and to provide consumers more specific 
information when problems occur;
    --Improve risk communications to the public during food-
related events and make it easier to receive adverse events 
reports, including creating a reportable food registry;
    --Identify additional data and information needed to 
increase understanding of food protection risk and 
vulnerabilities by improving the quality of foodborne illness 
attribution data; and
    --Support partnerships with state and local partners 
through information technology, training and data sharing.
    The bill provides an increase of $1,000,000 for the Office 
of Cosmetics and Colors.
    The bill provides an increase of $114,211,000 for medical 
product safety. An increase of more than $21,000,000 for 
medical product safety was provided in fiscal year 2008, and 
FDA received an additional $58,000,000 in supplemental funds 
during fiscal year 2008 for medical product safety. As noted 
above, it is expected that this funding will result in safer 
drugs, devices, and biologic products for consumers. Similar to 
a recent approach FDA has taken to address overall food safety 
issues, FDA is directed to prepare and provide to the 
Committees on Appropriations a comprehensive approach to 
ensuring the safety of medical products from the manufacturing 
of raw ingredients or components to consumer use.
    Specifically, these funding increases will, at a minimum, 
provide FDA with the capability to:
    --Significantly increase foreign and domestic medical 
product facility inspections, improve laboratory infrastructure 
and rapid analysis tools, and conduct many more laboratory 
analyses and several thousand import exams and samples;
    --Establish a unique device identification system to track 
devices, facilitate recalls, and support inventory management;
    --Begin to implement the safety requirements outlined in 
the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act;
    --Upgrade the agency's information technology to enable 
data sharing and enhanced analysis of adverse events;
    --Develop a regulated product information data warehouse 
that will enable information sharing with other regulatory 
agencies; and
    --Integrate risk-based information into data systems that 
will support FDA's ability to improve electronic screening of 
imports and allow the agency to proactively identify problems 
and risks associated with imported products.
    The bill provides $16,000,000 for the critical path 
initiative, including not less than $4,000,000 for competitive 
contracts or grants to universities and non-profit 
organizations to support critical path projects. Funding for 
critical path activities is distributed throughout FDA's 
program areas, and the Office of Critical Path Programs (OCPP) 
is responsible for coordinating these activities at the agency. 
It is understood that OCPP, working with FDA's centers, will 
play a primary role in determining which critical path efforts 
the agency will undertake.
    The bill provides an increase of $6,620,000 for the 
Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising and Communication in 
CDER. The funding provided is to be used for the review of 
direct-to-consumer advertisements and is equal to the amount of 
funding that the budget estimated would have been raised by the 
fee in fiscal year 2009.
    The bill provides $2,000,000 for Demonstration Grants for 
Improving Pediatric Device Availability, as authorized by the 
Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007, in the 
Center for Devices and Radiological Health. Medical device 
products are typically developed for adults, limiting 
children's access to safe and effective medical devices. This 
program will provide grants to nonprofit pediatric medical 
device consortia, which will assist scientists and innovators 
with technical and financial resources to improve the number of 
medical devices available to children. The Office of Orphan 
Products Development will be responsible for carrying out this 
program.
    The bill provides $6,000,000 for the Office of Women's 
Health, an increase of $1,000,000.
    There is concern about the contamination of farm-raised 
shrimp imports with banned antibiotics. FDA currently inspects 
less than two percent of imported shrimp. FDA is strongly 
encouraged to develop, in cooperation with state testing 
programs, a program for increasing the inspection of imported 
shrimp for banned antibiotics.
    FDA is encouraged to conduct workshops and engage in other 
forms of communication with federal agencies, organizations 
involved in blood collection and others, to ensure that those 
organizations and the public understand the latest scientific 
information available on blood safety issues.
    There are poor survival rates and a lack of new therapies 
associated with many pediatric cancers, including high-risk 
neuroblastoma. FDA is encouraged to prioritize review of new 
treatments and clinical trials for pediatric oncology patients 
and provide a report on these activities.
    The bill provides no less than the fiscal year 2008 level 
in appropriated funds for activities related to the Mammography 
Quality Standards Act (MQSA). Appropriations for this program 
fund research grants and various activities to develop and 
enforce quality standards for mammography service. On June 26, 
2008, the Committees received a report on actions being taken 
to implement recommendations made in the Institute of Medicine 
report entitled ``Breast Imaging Quality Standards.'' The 
report stated that FDA held an open public meeting on September 
28 and 29, 2006, and has been considering potential amendments 
to MQSA, which would address the IOM report, since this 
meeting. To date, FDA has not acted on any of these 
recommendations. This is an unacceptable delay. FDA is directed 
to report to the Committees on which amendments that FDA will 
propose to MQSA, if any, in response to the IOM report 
recommendations, and provide a timeline for these amendments.
    The importance of seafood to a healthy diet is recognized, 
but there are concerns that FDA does not focus sufficient 
attention on economic integrity issues, particularly with 
respect to mislabeling of species, weights, country of origin, 
and treatment. FDA is encouraged to work with states to more 
aggressively combat fraud in parts of the seafood industry.
    The Hawaii Department of Agriculture has proposed a state-
wide standardized food safety certification system. FDA is 
encouraged to work with the State of Hawaii on this system and 
to provide funding if appropriate.
    Serious concerns have been raised about illnesses and 
deaths from Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). 
Estimates suggest that tens of thousands of persons develop 
serious MRSA infections in the United States each year and 
thousands die. While both FDA and USDA fund research on this 
issue, more may need to be done. FDA is encouraged to work with 
USDA and CDC, through the National Antibiotic Resistance 
Monitoring System and/or the Antibiotic Resistance Interagency 
Task Force, to address the issue of the prevalence of MRSA in 
domestic farm animals.
    The bill provides funding for the following items: 
$1,650,000 for the Agricultural Products Food Safety Laboratory 
at New Mexico State University; $525,000 for collaborative drug 
safety research at the Critical Path Institute and the 
University of Utah; $1,608,000 for dietary supplements research 
at the National Center for Natural Products Research in 
Mississippi; $2,077,000 for the National Center for Food Safety 
and Technology, Summit-Argo, Illinois; $139,000 for the 
Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference (ISSC); $174,000 for 
ISSC vibrio vulnificus education; $69,000 for the Waste 
Management Education and Research Consortium at New Mexico 
State University; and $1,399,000 for the Western Region Center 
of Excellence at the University of California-Davis. Funding 
for these items was included in the budget request.

                        BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES

    The bill provides $12,433,000 for FDA buildings and 
facilities, as requested in the amended budget. This funding 
shall be used to upgrade FDA facilities and laboratories that 
are currently below public safety standards and incapable of 
performing agency requirements. In providing this funding, 
specific projects are not approved, as the backlog of 
maintenance and repairs at FDA locations is significant. FDA is 
directed to prioritize this funding consistent with the backlog 
of maintenance and repairs and improve the average facility 
condition index at FDA sites. Within 30 days of the date of 
enactment of this Act, FDA is directed to provide a plan for 
allocating the funding to the Committees. The plan should 
include the methodology used to allocate the resources; the 
specific maintenance or repairs that will be conducted; whether 
the funding allocated to the site will complete a project or is 
partial funding for the project; and if partial funding for a 
project is provided, the full cost of completing the project.

  (b) The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives 
shall include in all such data releases, language similar to 
the following that would make clear that trace data cannot be 
used to draw broad conclusions about firearms-related crime:
          (1) Firearm traces are designed to assist law 
        enforcement authorities in conducting investigations by 
        tracking the sale and possession of specific firearms. 
        Law enforcement agencies may request firearms traces 
        for any reason, and those reasons are not necessarily 
        reported to the Federal Government. Not all firearms 
        used in crime are traced and not all firearms traced 
        are used in crime.
          (2) Firearms selected for tracing are not chosen for 
        purposes of determining which types, makes, or models 
        of firearms are used for illicit purposes. The firearms 
        selected do not constitute a random sample and should 
        not be considered representative of the larger universe 
        of all firearms used by criminals, or any subset of 
        that universe. Firearms are normally traced to the 
        first retail seller, and sources reported for firearms 
        traced do not necessarily represent the sources or 
        methods by which firearms in general are acquired for 
        use in crime.
  Sec. 517. (a) The Inspectors General of the Department of 
Commerce, the Department of Justice, the National Aeronautics 
and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation, and 
the Legal Services Corporation shall conduct audits, pursuant 
to the Inspector General Act (5 U.S.C. App.), of grants or 
contracts for which funds are appropriated by this Act, and 
shall submit reports to Congress on the progress of such 
audits, which may include preliminary findings and a 
description of areas of particular interest, within 180 days 
after initiating such an audit and every 180 days thereafter 
until any such audit is completed.
  (b) Within 60 days after the date on which an audit described 
in subsection (a) by an Inspector General is completed, the 
Secretary, Attorney General, Administrator, Director, or 
President, as appropriate, shall make the results of the audit 
available to the public on the Internet website maintained by 
the Department, Administration, Foundation, or Corporation, 
respectively. The results shall be made available in redacted 
form to exclude--
          (1) any matter described in section 552(b) of title 
        5, United States Code; and
          (2) sensitive personal information for any 
        individual, the public access to which could be used to 
        commit identity theft or for other inappropriate or 
        unlawful purposes.
  (c) A grant or contract funded by amounts appropriated by 
this Act may not be used for the purpose of defraying the costs 
of a banquet or conference that is not directly and 
programmatically related to the purpose for which the grant or 
contract was awarded, such as a banquet or conference held in 
connection with planning, training, assessment, review, or 
other routine purposes related to a project funded by the grant 
or contract.
  (d) Any person awarded a grant or contract funded by amounts 
appropriated by this Act shall submit a statement to the 
Secretary of Commerce, the Attorney General, the Administrator, 
Director, or President, as appropriate, certifying that no 
funds derived from the grant or contract will be made available 
through a subcontract or in any other manner to another person 
who has a financial interest in the person awarded the grant or 
contract.
  (e) The provisions of the preceding subsections of this 
section shall take effect 30 days after the date on which the 
Director of the Office of Management and Budget, in 
consultation with the Director of the Office of Government 
Ethics, determines that a uniform set of rules and

treaty, none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made 
available under this Act or any other Act may be expended or

United States to pay administrative expenses or to compensate 
an officer or employee of the United States in connection with 
requiring an export license for the export to Canada of 
components, parts, accessories or attachments for firearms 
listed in Category I, section 121.1 of title 22, Code of 
Federal Regulations (International Trafficking in Arms

controls for the articles specified in subsection (a), such 
that a significant diversion of such articles has and continues 
to take place for use in international terrorism or in the 
escalation of a conflict in another nation. The President shall 
terminate the requirements of a license when reasons for the 
temporary requirements have ceased.
  Sec. 521. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no 
department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States 
receiving appropriated funds under this Act or any other Act 
shall obligate or expend in any way such funds to pay

employee of the United States to deny any application submitted 
pursuant to 22 U.S.C. 2778(b)(1)(B) and qualified pursuant to 
27 CFR section 478.112 or .113, for a permit to import United 
States origin ``curios or relics'' firearms, parts, or 
ammunition.
  Sec. 522. None of the funds made available in this Act may be

          (3) paragraph 4 of article 15.9 of the United States-
        Morocco Free Trade Agreement.
  Sec. 523. None of the funds made available in this Act may be 
used to authorize or issue a national security letter in 
contravention of any of the following laws authorizing the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation to issue national security 
letters: The Right to Financial Privacy Act; The Electronic 
Communications Privacy Act; The Fair Credit Reporting Act; The 
National Security Act of 1947; USA PATRIOT Act; and the laws 
amended by these Acts.
  Sec. 524. If at any time during any quarter, the program 
manager of a project within the jurisdiction of the Departments 
of Commerce or Justice, the National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration, or the National Science Foundation totaling 
more than $75,000,000 has reasonable cause to believe that the 
total program cost has increased by 10 percent, the program 
manager shall immediately inform the Secretary, Administrator,

notify the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 
30 days in writing of such increase, and shall include in such 
notice: the date on which such determination was made; a 
statement of the reasons for such increases; the action taken 
and proposed to be taken to control future cost growth of the 
project; changes made in the performance or schedule milestones 
and the degree to which such changes have contributed to the 
increase in total program costs or procurement costs; new 
estimates of the total project or procurement costs; and a 
statement validating that the project's management structure is

  Sec. 525. Funds appropriated by this Act, or made available 
by the transfer of funds in this Act, for intelligence or 
intelligence related activities are deemed to be specifically 
authorized by the Congress for purposes of section 504 of the

an amount greater than $5,000,000 or to award a grant in excess 
of such amount unless the prospective contractor or grantee

grant that, to the best of its knowledge and belief, the 
contractor or grantee has filed all Federal tax returns 
required during the three years preceding the certification, 
has not been convicted of a criminal offense under the Internal 
Revenue Code of 1986, and has not, more than 90 days prior to

Revenue Service and is not in default, or the assessment is the 
subject of a non-frivolous administrative or judicial 
proceeding.
  Sec. 528. None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made

          (1) to enforce vigorously its trade laws, including 
        antidumping, countervailing duty, and safeguard laws;
          (2) to avoid agreements that--
                  (A) lessen the effectiveness of domestic and 
                international disciplines on unfair trade, 
                especially dumping and subsidies; or
                  (B) lessen the effectiveness of domestic and 
                international safeguard provisions, in order to 
                ensure that United States workers, agricultural 
                producers, and firms can compete fully on fair 
                terms and enjoy the benefits of reciprocal 
                trade concessions; and
          (3) to address and remedy market distortions that 
        lead to dumping and subsidization, including 
        overcapacity, cartelization, and market-access 
        barriers.

                             (RESCISSIONS)

      DIVISION B--COMMERCE, JUSTICE, SCIENCE AND RELATED AGENCIES 
                        APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2009

                    TITLE I--DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE

                   International Trade Administration

                     OPERATIONS AND ADMINISTRATION

    The bill includes $429,870,000 in total resources for the 
programs of the International Trade Administration (ITA). This 
amount includes a direct appropriation of $420,431,000 and 
estimated offsetting fee collections of $9,439,000. Funds are 
to be available for the following activities at no less than 
the following amounts:

Import administration...................................     $66,357,000
Market access and compliance (MAC)......................      42,332,000
Manufacturing and services..............................      48,592,000
Executive direction.....................................      25,411,000
U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service.......................     237,739,000

    Reporting requirements.--ITA is directed to submit to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations, not later than 
60 days after the enactment of this Act, a spending plan for 
all ITA units that incorporates any carryover balances from 
prior fiscal years, and is updated to reflect the obligation of 
funds on a quarterly basis.
    The positive and negative effects of a free trade agenda 
are difficult to balance, but it is critical that the United 
States government upholds its responsibility to enforce trade 
laws, particularly with China. If trading partners do not abide 
by the rules that are set in the global trading system, United 
States firms are unable to compete on a level playing field. 
The United States government has an obligation to ensure that 
U.S. companies are not forced to compete with foreign companies 
that are engaged in unfair trading practices.
    Import Administration.--The bill includes not less than 
$66,357,000 for the Import Administration (IA). ITA is urged to 
implement proactive trade enforcement activities, including 
textile safeguard actions with respect to China's World Trade 
Organization Accession Agreement, bilateral quotas on non-WTO 
members, and textile provision of the United States 
preferential programs and agreements, through filling of 
vacancies in enforcement offices.
    The bill designates $5,900,000 for the Office of China 
Compliance within the IA appropriation. The office is under-
staffed and undergoing a reorganization that may potentially 
damage its long-term effectiveness. IA is directed to fully 
staff anti-dumping (AD) efforts and to ensure that the office 
consists of experienced investigators, accountants, trade 
analysts, and technical experts to aggressively investigate AD 
cases. The office shall notify the House and Senate Committees 
on Appropriations of any impediments to hiring or retaining 
this expertise. IA is further directed to expand the size of 
the AD and countervailing duty (CVD) verification teams and 
ensure new analysts receive on-site training in verification 
practices and techniques.
    IA's absorption of $2,000,000 in fees in recent years has 
eroded resources that otherwise would have been expended in 
conducting investigations and reviews of AD/CVD cases. U.S. 
industries should not have to pay fees to file AD/CVD 
petitions; therefore, IA should not be charged for fees.
    Import monitoring.--ITA is expected to undertake apparel 
import monitoring, focusing on prices of imports from China and 
Vietnam and whether their state-run industries are illegally 
pricing products and dumping in the U.S. market.
    Travel expenditures.--The Department is directed to 
increase the number of investigative teams traveling to China 
and India, the sources of most trade complaints, to verify 
documentation of information provided by foreign companies. The 
Department is expected to submit quarterly reports to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations regarding ITA's travel 
expenditures, including separate breakouts of funding, number 
of trips and the purposes of travel to both China and India.
    Appalachian-Turkish Trade Project (ATTP).--The Commercial 
Service is commended for its leadership role in helping to 
implement the mission of the ATTP, and is expected to continue 
to be a prominent ATTP sponsor.
    World Trade Organization.--The Department of Commerce is 
directed, in consultation with the United States Trade 
Representative, to continue to negotiate within the WTO to seek 
express recognition of the existing right of WTO Members to 
distribute monies collected from antidumping and countervailing 
duties. The agency shall consult with and provide regular 
reports every 60 days to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations. In addition, negotiations shall be conducted 
within the WTO consistent with the negotiating objectives 
contained in the Trade Act of 2002, Public Law 107-210, to 
maintain strong U.S. trade remedies laws, prevent overreaching 
by WTO Panels and the WTO Appellate Body, and prevent the 
creation of obligations never negotiated or agreed to by the 
United States.
    Reduced fees.--ITA reduced fees for export promotion 
services and trade missions for 2005 hurricane-affected 
companies. In light of the ongoing need to encourage exporting 
and assist local businesses with their economic recovery 
efforts, ITA is encouraged to find ways to extend these fee 
reductions through fiscal year 2009 for companies affected by 
hurricanes in the Gulf region.
    Within the appropriation, $4,400,000 is provided for the 
following activities:

                    Bureau of Industry and Security


                     OPERATIONS AND ADMINISTRATION

    The bill includes $83,676,000 for the Bureau of Industry 
and Security (BIS), which is $500,000 above the budget request. 
Of the amount provided, $14,767,000 is for inspections and 
other activities related to national security, and $2,385,000 
is for program enhancements and new initiatives that will 
advance BIS' export control and enforcement activities.

                  Economic Development Administration

    The bill includes $272,800,000 for the programs and 
administrative expenses of the Economic Development 
Administration (EDA), which is $149,168,000 above the request.

              ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ADMINISTRATION PROGRAMS

    The bill includes $240,000,000 for the Economic Development 
Assistance Programs, an increase of $147,200,000 above the 
request. Of the amounts provided, funds are to be distributed 
as follows:

Global climate change mitigation initiative.............     $14,700,000
Public works............................................     133,280,000
Planning................................................      31,000,000
Technical assistance....................................       9,400,000
Research and evaluation.................................         490,000
Trade adjustment assistance.............................      15,800,000
Economic adjustment assistance..........................      35,330,000

    Global Climate Change Mitigation Fund.--The bill provides 
$14,700,000 for the Global Climate Change Mitigation Incentive 
Fund, $13,600,000 above the request. Economic development must 
address the effects of climate change. EDA is directed to 
provide a report and spend plan on the fund to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations, no later than 90 days 
after enactment of the Act. The report should detail the scope 
of the fund, the criteria for approval of fund expenditures, 
and the methodology EDA will employ when reviewing grants.
    Public Works.--The bill provides $133,280,000 for Public 
Works, $126,080,000 above the budget request. These funds are 
critical to local communities and industries faced with 
increased economic pressures and dislocations in the rapidly 
changing global economy.
    Planning.--The bill provides $31,000,000 for planning, 
$4,000,000 above the request. EDA is directed to allocate 
$3,700,000 of the additional planning resources to the existing 
network of 370 Economic Development Districts (EDDs), with the 
remaining $300,000 to reduce the backlog of designated-but-
unfunded EDDs. This increase provides EDDs with the flexibility 
needed to engage local government, business, and community 
leadership in setting and pursuing strategic job creation and 
retention initiatives effectively.
    Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA).--The bill provides 
$15,800,000 for trade adjustment assistance, an increase of 
$1,700,000 over the request. Not less than $200,000 and no more 
than $350,000 shall be available to fund permanent FTE. TAA has 
been heavily dependent on interns to process key program 
elements. While interns can supplement staff, they should not 
be relied upon to solve permanently staffing shortages. EDA is 
directed to provide quarterly reports on its progress in hiring 
of permanent FTE and processing levels, to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations, with the first report to be 
delivered within 90 days of enactment of this Act.
    Hawaii field office.--EDA is strongly encouraged to 
increase staff support for this field office due to its 
exceptionally large geographic area.
    Funding disbursements.--EDA is directed to allocate all 
funding, including supplemental and disaster funding, through 
the competitive, regional allocation process.

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill includes $32,800,000 for EDA salaries and 
expenses, $1,968,000 above the budget request.
    Current operational structure.--The bill fully funds the 
request for salaries and expenses appropriation, which provides 
adequate funding to begin filling vacancies within regional 
offices. EDA is directed to fill vacancies within regional 
offices prior to filling vacancies within headquarters. 
Continued commitment to the current operational structure, with 
six regional offices in Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Denver, 
Philadelphia, and Seattle, is reiterated.
    Transfer authority.--The bill includes language providing 
EDA with permissive transfer authority, not to exceed 
$4,000,000, from EDA program grants, subject to the Section 505 
limitations on transfers, for additional salaries and expenses 
for grant administration and management. EDA is also strongly 
encouraged to utilize retired EDA officials to address staffing 
needs on a volunteer basis.

                  Minority Business Development Agency


                     Minority Business Development

    The bill includes $29,825,000 for the Minority Business 
Development Agency, which is $1,202,000 above the budget 
request. Within the funds provided, existing Native American 
Business Development Centers are continued, and $825,000 is 
provided for the following activities: 

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]


                   Economic and Statistical Analysis


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $90,621,000 for this account, which is 
$500,000 above the budget request.

                          Bureau of the Census

    The bill includes a total operating level of $3,139,850,000 
for the Bureau of the Census, which is the same as the budget 
request.

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $233,588,000 for this account, which is 
the same as the budget request. Of this amount, $45,742,000 is 
for the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), 
which is $486,000 above the budget request. This funding 
provides for a full SIPP sample of 45,000 households to begin 
in September 2008 and will allow for improvements, including 
security enhancements, to the current SIPP system by fiscal 
year 2012.

                     PERIODIC CENSUSES AND PROGRAMS

    The bill provides $2,906,262,000 for this account, which is 
the same as the budget request.
    2010 Decennial Census.--Full funding of the request has 
been provided to return the 2010 Census to a more reliable, 
paper-based operation, with the expectation that the new 
Administration will focus the requisite oversight to ensure a 
successful Decennial. It is noted that the Department's past 
lack of critical oversight and the previous Administration's 
lack of attention to the 2010 Decennial significantly increased 
the risk of failure for this constitutionally-mandated effort.
    Life cycle cost estimate.--The Census Bureau has recently 
negotiated a replan of the FDCA contract which will utilize the 
handheld devices only for the address canvassing and rely on a 
paper-based operation for non-response followup. This replan 
results in a significant increase in the life cycle cost of the 
Decennial Census, but allows for greater predictability in 
remaining cost estimates. The full impact of the life cycle 
increase is as yet undefined, but may increase by 
$3,000,000,000. The Census Bureau is directed to implement the 
Government Accountability Office's June 16, 2008, report 
recommendations on life cycle cost estimates and provide an 
updated life cycle cost estimate with the submission of the 
fiscal year 2010 budget request.
    2010 Decennial milestones.--Report language that 
accompanies the fiscal year 2008 supplemental appropriations 
for the Census Bureau regarding the development and reporting 
of milestones associated with the 2010 Census is adopted by 
reference.
    Communications.--Paid media is critical to promoting 
increased participation in the 2010 Decennial, particularly in 
minority and other hard-to-count populations. In the 2000 
Decennial, it improved the rate of response, particularly in 
communities with limited English proficiency. Despite 
operational improvements to the Census' conduct of the 
Decennial and upfront purchasing of media, the return to a 
paper-based nonresponse followup should result in a 
reevaluation of communication needs in light of changes to the 
process. Census is directed to conduct such reevaluation, and 
to submit a comprehensive communication plan in its fiscal year 
2010 budget request that incorporates the effect of the replan 
and lack of handhelds for non-response followup.
    Partnerships.--The Bureau of the Census is directed to 
allocate sufficient funding from within the appropriation 
provided to support robust partnership and outreach efforts in 
preparation for the 2010 Decennial, with specific focus on 
hard-to-reach populations. Funding provided for the census 
partnership program will enlist community leaders to encourage 
their constituencies to fill out their census forms, 
emphasizing the importance of the census to their local 
community and education system. The increase in mail-back 
response rates as a result of such promotional efforts will 
likely result in substantial savings during nonresponse 
followup enumeration.
    Language assistance programs.--The Census Bureau is 
directed to provide updates on a semi-annual basis on its 
language assistance program, including information on how it 
will reach and assist respondents who speak Asian, American 
Indian and Alaska Native languages, Spanish, and other 
languages spoken by ethnic immigrants in the United States for 
the American Community Survey (ACS) and the 2010 Decennial.
    Additional outreach.--The Census Bureau is directed to 
provide not less than $10,000,000 for Census in Schools 
competitive grants and adult education materials for the 2010 
Decennial. Census in Schools and adult education materials 
provide significant outreach to hard-to-reach populations 
through the medium of take-home materials that educate 
students, their parents and their extended families.
    Data on small population groups.--In many ethnic and 
immigrant communities, gathering accurate information about 
smaller subgroups is extremely important for policymakers, as 
the needs among the various populations vary significantly. The 
Census Bureau is urged to ensure that reliable information 
about Asian, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, and other national 
origins subgroups, especially numerically smaller groups, is 
collected from the ACS and Decennial census and published. The 
Bureau is directed to report back to the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees within 90 days of enactment of this 
Act, describing the steps it will take to ensure the 
availability and accuracy of the data.
    Offshore U.S. jurisdictions.--The efforts of the Census 
Bureau to consider new options for reporting data reflecting 
all citizens of the United States, including Puerto Rico and 
other offshore U.S. jurisdictions, are noted.

       National Telecommunications and Information Administration


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill includes $19,218,000 for the salaries and expenses 
of the National Telecommunications and Information 
Administration (NTIA), which is $773,000 above the budget 
request.
    Enhance 911.--The Digital Television Transition and Public 
Safety Fund made $43,500,000 available in mandatory funding to 
implement the ENHANCE 911 Act of 2004. The Assistant Secretary 
is directed to coordinate the work of the NTIA on this critical 
program with other relevant Federal agencies.
    Reimbursements.--The bill retains language from previous 
years allowing the Secretary of Commerce to collect 
reimbursements from other Federal agencies for a portion of the 
cost of coordination of spectrum management, analysis, and 
operations. The NTIA shall submit a report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than June 1, 2009, 
detailing the collection of reimbursements from other agencies 
related to spectrum management, analyses and research.

    PUBLIC TELECOMMUNICATIONS FACILITIES, PLANNING AND CONSTRUCTION

    The bill includes $20,000,000 for Public Telecommunications 
Facilities, Planning and Construction. The budget request 
proposed to terminate this program.

               United States Patent and Trademark Office


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill includes $2,010,100,000 for the United States 
Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), which is the same as the 
USPTO revised fee collection estimate dated December 5, 2008.
    National Intellectual Property Law Enforcement Coordination 
Council (NIPLECC).--The bill includes a provision that 
transfers $750,000 to ``Departmental Management, Salaries and 
Expenses'' for activities associated with NIPLECC. In 
subsequent years, it is expected that funds will be requested 
through the Executive Office of the President.
    Backlog of patent applications.--The Government 
Accountability Office has found that the backlog of unexamined 
patent applications at the USPTO has increased by nearly 73 
percent since fiscal year 2002. Currently, the average pendency 
of applications is 32 months. If this trend continues, average 
pendency will be 52 months by 2012. Since 2005, the USPTO 
budget has grown by over $500,000,000, yet pendency and backlog 
have worsened. Therefore, the bill includes language 
transferring $2,000,000 to the Office of Inspector General for 
the express purpose of conducting continual audit engagements 
and oversight at the USPTO.
    The USPTO has responded to the backlog by issuing final 
rules limiting the ability of applicants to modify their 
applications with additional information and claims through the 
use of continuing applications, even though an overwhelming 
majority of users of the patent system objected when given the 
opportunity for public comment. In addition, the United States 
District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia has 
enjoined the issuance of the rules changes as exceeding the 
statutory authority of the Undersecretary and Director.
    However, the sustained increase in the number of 
applications that has given rise to the increasing backlog is 
largely a consequence of a globalized economy in which 
applicants are filing in more than one jurisdiction. This means 
that the USPTO and other national patent offices are 
duplicating one another's work. The Government Accountability 
Office has found that the hiring of additional patent examiners 
has not been sufficient to reverse this trend, and is therefore 
unlikely to resolve the backlog problem. Therefore, the most 
likely means of reducing the pendency of patent applications is 
for the leading patent offices to make more effective use of 
one another's work. The USPTO is directed to take actions to 
reduce duplication of work already performed by another patent 
office in a manner that does not compromise the quality of the 
examination or compromise the sovereignty of the United States. 
The USPTO is also encouraged to review its proposed rules 
changes so that they fall within the statutory authority of the 
Director and take into account the concerns of the majority of 
users of the patent system.
    USPTO operations.--The USPTO is directed to adopt the 
principles of the Baldrige National Quality Program, which 
represents the pinnacle of performance excellence for American 
business. The USPTO is directed to work with the Baldrige 
program to begin the process of incorporating these principles 
and to report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations on a quarterly basis on progress made towards 
adoption.
    Patent examiners.--Numerous reviews conducted by the 
Government Accountability Office (GAO) have shown that for 
every two examiners hired, one leaves the agency, many citing 
the unreasonable work productivity goals as a major reason for 
their departure. These goals, first adopted in the 1970s, have 
not been updated to address the ever more complex technologies 
that encompass today's patent applications. The unrealistic 
goals are encouraging junior examiners to leave, and that will 
make it difficult to replace the productivity rates of senior 
examiners when they retire. Thus, the bill includes language 
withholding $5,000,000 of fees from obligation pending a 
comprehensive reevaluation of the work productivity goals for 
patent examiners and submission of the results to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations.
    Spend plan.-- Any deviations from the funding distribution 
provided for in this Act and in its accompanying statement, 
including carryover balances, are subject to the standard 
reprogramming procedures set forth in section 505 of this Act. 
The USPTO is directed to submit a spending plan to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations, incorporating all 
carryover balances from previous years and describing any 
changes to the patent or trademark fee structure, within 30 
days of enactment of this Act.
    Fee estimate.--It is noted that the USPTO's actual fee 
collections for the last four fiscal years have been less than 
the earlier estimates. The uncertainty of fees is 
understandable; however, results in excess appropriations. 
USPTO is therefore directed to provide revised fee estimates 
for fiscal year 2010 to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, no later than September 1, 2009.

             National Institute of Standards and Technology

    The bill includes $819,000,000 for the National Institute

enactment of this Act, NIST is directed to provide a spend plan 
that coincides with the budget restructuring the agency 
proposed to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
on July 7, 2008. NIST is encouraged to devote resources to its 
Measurement & Standards for Climate Change Program and the 
Office of Law Enforcement Standards.
    Printed electronics study.--Flexible, large area and 
printed electronics technology holds great promise for the 
competitiveness of the United States. NIST shall enter into an 
agreement with the National Academy of Sciences to undertake a 
study that examines the position of the United States in 
flexible electronics relative to efforts in other countries. 
The National Academies shall also consider the particular 
technologies and commercial sectors to which flexible 
electronics apply and the recommendations that must be 
undertaken at a Federal level for a national initiative.
    Working Capital Fund (WCF).--Within the appropriation, the 
bill provides up to $9,000,000 for transfer to NIST's WCF, 
which is $3,300,000 less than the budget request.
    NIST is directed to refrain from charging administrative 
costs for congressionally directed projects, and is expected to 
provide appropriate management and oversight of each grant. 
Within the appropriation, $3,000,000 is provided for the 
following congressionally directed activities:

$30,000,000 for competitive construction grants for research 
science buildings. These grants shall be awarded to colleges, 
universities and other non-profit science research 
organizations on a merit basis.
    NIST is further directed to refrain from charging 
administrative costs for congressionally directed projects and 
competitive construction grants, and is expected to provide 
appropriate management and oversight of each grant. Within the 
appropriation, $44,000,000 is provided for the following 
congressionally directed activities: 

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]


            National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

    The bill includes a total of $4,365,196,000 in 
discretionary appropriations for the National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration, which is $261,283,000 above the 
request.
    Justification.--NOAA is directed to work with the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations to reformat its 
justification into a more useable and user-friendly document, 
starting with the fiscal year 2010 submission.
    Research and development (R&D) tracking and outcomes.--NOAA 
is directed to continue tracking the division of R&D funds 
between intramural and extramural research, and is further 
directed to assure consistency and clarity in the collection 
and reporting of data. NOAA is also directed to state clearly 
its expected research outcomes and available funding in order 
to provide transparency into the competitive grant process for 
extramural researchers. By not providing enough extramural 
research funding, NOAA risks discouraging extramural 
involvement in NOAA's research programs and the concomitant 
leveraging of external funds in support of mission-oriented 
research. Thus, NOAA is encouraged to provide additional 
extramural funding in future budget requests.
    Atmospheric sciences.--NOAA is urged to make atmospheric 
sciences a priority within the resources made available in the 
bill and to request additional resources in subsequent years to 
advance this research.

$4,600,000 for oyster restoration in the Chesapeake Bay. Of 
these funds, $2,600,000 is provided for oyster restoration in 
Maryland waters of the Chesapeake Bay, which shall be for on-
the-ground and in-the-water restoration efforts. In addition, 
$2,000,000 of these funds are for oyster restoration in 
Virginia waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Funds shall not be used 
for administrative costs, including banquets or salaries.
    Regional studies, Chesapeake Bay.--NOAA's Chesapeake Bay 
Office is directed to develop, within nine months after 
enactment of this Act, a collaborative strategic research and 
assessment program with the States of Maryland and Virginia. 
This program will advance multiple species management by 
focusing on blue crabs, oysters, and other resource species. In 
developing this program, NOAA shall utilize the Sea Grant 
programs from both States.
    Blue crab disaster assistance.--The bill provides 
$10,000,000 to be equally divided between the States of 
Maryland and Virginia for economic assistance to watermen and 
communities impacted by the Secretary's blue crab disaster 
declaration of September 22, 2008.
    New England fisheries assistance.--The bill provides 
$10,000,000 to assist New England's fisheries impacted by 
regulations and catch reductions. NOAA is directed to provide 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations with a spend 
plan for such funds within 30 days of enactment of this Act.
    Pacific salmon restoration.--The San Joaquin River 
Restoration Settlement will restore California's second longest 
river and help rebuild imperiled Pacific salmon runs. NMFS is 
obligated, under the Federal court order, to participate in the 
restoration planning and settlement implementation along with

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]


    Williston radar.--NOAA is directed to maintain staffing and 
operations at the Williston Radar site through fiscal year 
2009.
    National mesonet network grants.--The National Research 
Council (NRC) has completed a study for NOAA, ``Developing 
Mesoscale Meteorological Observational Capabilities to Meet 
Multiple National Needs'' which provides a framework for a full 
scale national mesonet network. In particular, the NRC calls 
for the use of public/private partnerships, the aggregation of 
a network of networks and the leveraging of existing networks 
(public and private), as components of the national mesonet for 
high priority regions--mountains, coastal, and urban. The bill 
provides $11,000,000 for NOAA to procure competitively a 
national mesonet, which will provide the critical information 
needed to improve short- and medium-term weather forecasting 
(down to local scales), plume dispersion and climate 
monitoring, as well as air quality analyses. NOAA is directed 
to utilize $5,000,000 of these funds to maintain operations for 
existing mesonet network observation agreements. NOAA is 
further directed to utilize $1,500,000 to examine the use of 
real time mobile data collected from commercial trucking 
operators to evaluate, validate and demonstrate the efficacy of 
providing supplemental weather information to improve the 
safety and efficiency of the national highway system. NOAA is 
directed to provide to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, within 90 days after enactment, a plan, 
including policies and requirements, for the operation of the 
national mesonet, as well as integration of mesonet data into 
NWS field offices, mesoscale numerical weather prediction 
models, and with the Advanced Weather Interactive Processing 
System (AWIPS), as part of the AWIPS Technology Infusion 
program. NOAA is further directed to make awards no later than 
September 1, 2009.
    Central forecast guidance.--An additional $10,000,000 is 
provided above the amount requested for central forecast 
guidance to reflect more accurately that these funds shall be 
available primarily for rent, operations and security of the 
NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction. The increase 
corresponds with a decrease of funds for the same amount 
requested for Center for Weather and Climate Prediction under 
NOAA's PAC account.
    National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information 
Service (NESDIS).--The bill includes $187,422,000 for NESDIS 
operations, research and facilities, which is $22,130,000 above 
the request. These funds are distributed as follows: 

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]


    Coral reef monitoring.--Funding for this request has been 
moved to the ocean assessment program within the National Ocean 
Service.
    Ocean surface vector winds studies.--The bill does not 
include funding for the ocean surface vector winds studies. 
Instead, NESDIS is directed to conduct the study in-house and 
within available appropriations, and in conjunction with NASA, 
which has been directed similarly.
    Data centers and information services.--The bill includes 
$56,506,000 for archive, access and assessment, which is

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]


    Climate modeling and information technology security.--
NOAA's plans to upgrade its high performance computing and 
communications are supported with $20,000,000 above the request 
to accelerate climate modeling improvements and improve 
information technology services. NOAA is also encouraged to 
expand its partnership with the Department of Energy and the 
National Science Foundation to provide supercomputing capacity 
to help meet research needs.
    Competitive education grants.--The bill provides $8,500,000 
for competitive education grants, of which $7,500,000 is for a 
new ocean education grant program. Eligible recipients of the 
ocean education grants must be non-profit 501(c)(3) aquariums 
accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums with 
informal education partnerships regarding the ocean. The grants 
require a 50 percent non-Federal cost share and can be used for 
capital improvements, exhibit space and educational program 
development projects originating within the aquarium.
    BWET regional programs.--NOAA is directed to continue to 
support existing BWET programs and is encouraged to expand this 
program to additional regions.
    Marine operations and maintenance.--Increased funding for 
marine services and aviation services is provided above the 
request to offset increased fuel charges and to ensure critical 
research and operations are conducted.
    Fleet planning and maintenance.--Given the trend in lost 
sea days, an additional $11,000,000 is provided above the 
request to better ensure NOAA vessels are manned properly and 
operate safely. Improving fleet conditions and increasing days 
at sea will strengthen NOAA's ability to carry out many 
critical missions, including fisheries surveys, climate 
research, and nautical charting.
    Diving regulations.--NOAA's diving program is critical to 
conducting scientific research, ship maintenance and marine 
operations, and NOAA's unique mission requires unique diving 
operations. Section 106 of this bill provides the Secretary the 
authority to prescribe diving regulations. Within 90 days of 
enactment, NOAA is directed to submit a plan to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on how the agency will 
implement its own scientific and working diver regulations by 
the end of the fiscal year, which shall include recommendations 
on improving the viability, safety and efficiency of the NOAA 
diving program in out-years.
    Congressionally-directed items.--Within the appropriation 
for operations, research and facilities, the bill provides for 
the following Congressionally-directed activities:

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

               PROCUREMENT, ACQUISITION AND CONSTRUCTION

    The bill includes a total program level of $1,245,647,000 
under the Procurement, Acquisition and Construction (PAC) 
heading, which is $4,987,000 above the request. This includes a 
direct appropriation of $1,243,647,000 and $2,000,000 is 
derived from recoveries of prior year obligations. The funds 
will be distributed as follows: 

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]


    NOAA satellite systems.--The bill includes $965,667,000 for 
geostationary and polar orbiting satellite programs and the 
restoration of critical climate sensors. The impact of the 
GOES-R out-year costs on NOAA's traditional mission areas is 
troubling, as GOES-R demands an ever-increasing percentage of 
NOAA's budget. If investments in necessary satellite 
infrastructure must be funded within NOAA's budget, those 
requirements should be accommodated in NOAA's budget requests 
without impinging on NOAA's other critical mission priorities. 
Furthermore, both the GOES-R and NPOESS programs are entering 
critical phases of their respective developments during the 
transition of administrations. The Office of Inspector General 
recommended that the Department of Commerce establish 
thresholds and procedures for reporting and improving major 
deviations from GOES-R's capability, cost, and schedule 
baseline, as well as enhancements to the baseline. NOAA and the 
Department of Commerce are directed to implement this 
recommendation no later than March 2, 2009.
    VIIRS.--The VIIRS instrument has consistently caused major 
delays and cost overruns to the NPOESS program. Development 
delays continue; forcing postponement in the launch of the NPP 
mission, and almost certainly delaying the launch of C1 and C2 
of NPOESS. Therefore, NOAA is directed to provide, no later 
than March 2, 2009, to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, a revised total cost estimate to build and 
install the current VIIRS instrument for NPP, C1 and C2, as 
well as an analysis of alternatives to the VIIRS instrument, 
including cost estimates and risk analysis, as well as the 
matrix for development and contract performance.
    Comprehensive large array data stewardship system 
(CLASS).--NOAA CLASS is directed to establish a sound technical 
plan and implement foundation elements to move CLASS 
architecture to an enterprise solution that supports the 
anticipated increase in the demand for archival and 
distribution of current and planned data campaigns. NOAA CLASS 
is further directed to examine the technical and programmatic 
components required to establish an interface-to-data archives 
for the purpose of creating information products that would add 
value for stakeholders and the user community.
    Construction.--The bill provides $10,000,000 for program 
support construction, which allows NOAA to begin its highest 
priority construction projects.
    Cooperative Weather and Research Center.--The southeast 
United States experiences more severe weather events, such as 
hurricanes, tornados, lightning, flooding and severe droughts, 
than any other region of the country. NOAA dedicates few 
resources to respond and prepare for severe weather events in 
this area, and unlike other regions, the Southeast does not 
possess the surveillance, research and forecasting assets to 
study and predict these events. The bill provides a total of 
$10,550,000 for the NWS to build a Cooperative Institute and 
Research Center for Southeast Weather and Hydrology and to 
begin to develop and acquire dual polar, phased array and 
multi-frequency Doppler Radars and passive radiometers to study 
storms, improve rainfall estimates, and to begin to provide the 
citizens of the Southeast with state-of-the-art weather 
research and prediction capabilities. Of the funding provided, 
up to $1,500,000 shall be used for operations.
    NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction.--Based on 
revised information, the bill fully funds the request for the 
NCWCP building, but has shifted $10,000,000 to the ORF 
appropriation to more accurately reflect that these funds will 
be used primarily for rent, operations, and security of this 
facility.
    Congressionally-directed items.--Within the appropriation 
for procurement, acquisition and construction, the bill 
provides for the following Congressionally-directed activities:

                    TITLE II--DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE


                         General Administration


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    For fiscal year 2009, the bill provides $105,805,000 for 
General Administration (GA), which is equal to the budget 
request.
    Materials in support of the annual budget request.--The 
Department of Justice (DOJ) was the only agency under the CJS 
Subcommittee's jurisdiction which was unable to meet the 
liberal timetables imposed for submission of additional 
requested information in support of the Department's fiscal 
year 2009 budget. The Department is directed to take any action 
necessary to ensure that such delays do not occur in the fiscal 
year 2010 budget process.
    Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) 
investigations.--The Department shall continue to support OPR's 
ongoing reviews of the Federal government's interrogation 
methods and warrantless wiretapping practices, particularly 
through the provision of relevant documents and witnesses. It 
is expected that these investigations will be expeditiously 
pursued until they are complete.
    Resolution of jurisdictional disputes.--The Department is 
currently engaged in several jurisdictional disputes, both 
among DOJ components and between DOJ and other federal 
agencies. Particularly troubling examples include the ongoing 
conflict between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and 
the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) 
over the investigation of explosives crimes and the dispute 
between DOJ and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) over 
the appropriate location for the Office of Bombing Prevention. 
The Attorney General (AG) is directed to submit a report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than 120 
days after the enactment of this Act on the steps the 
Department has taken in order to reconcile these disputes and 
clarify the jurisdictional lines between FBI and ATF and 
between DOJ and DHS.
    Immigration workload.--DOJ's budget request fails to 
articulate, or account for, the increased resource requirements 
that result from other agencies' activities. This is 
particularly true with respect to immigration, where the 
Department has been repeatedly forced to redirect internal 
resources in order to provide necessary judicial support and 
basic care for aliens turned over to DOJ by DHS. The practical 
effect of these redirections has been cuts to non-immigration 
programs at DOJ. In order to accurately estimate the magnitude 
of these funding pressures, a methodology is required to create 
defensible fiscal linkages between DHS activities and DOJ 
costs. The Department is directed to contract with the National 
Academy of Sciences to develop, test and select a budget model 
that accurately captures these fiscal linkages and leverages 
them into an estimate of DOJ's immigration-related costs. The 
$1,000,000 necessary to perform this study should be funded 
within the appropriated level for this account, and the 
resulting conclusions should be submitted to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations upon completion, but not 
later than 20 months after the enactment of this Act.
    Rent estimates.--The rent estimates produced by the Justice 
Management Division are frequently incorrect, sometimes by tens 
of millions of dollars. The Department is urged to continue 
making improvements in its facilities and rent management 
system in order to improve the accuracy of future requests.
    National threat drug gangs.--No later than one year after 
the enactment of this Act, the AG, in consultation with the 
Secretary of Homeland Security, shall submit to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations a report, in both 
classified and unclassified form, identifying the three 
international drug gangs that present the greatest threat to 
law and order in the United States; describing the composition, 
operations, strengths and weaknesses of each of these gangs; 
and setting forth a national strategy to eliminate within four 
years the illegal operations of each identified gang.
    In choosing the three gangs to be included, which will be 
designated as ``National Threat Drug Gangs,'' the AG shall 
consider the extent to which the gang conducts activities with 
any international terrorist organization or state designated by 
the Secretary of State as a sponsor of terrorism; the volume of 
controlled substances that the gang imports to or distributes 
within the United States; and the extent to which the gang is a 
threat to children and schools within the United States.
    Overseas pay equivalency.--The Department is directed to 
address issues relating to danger pay and locality adjustment 
disparities between DOJ employees serving abroad and overseas 
employees of other agencies. The Department is further directed 
to report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
within 90 days of the enactment of this Act on the steps taken 
to address these disparities.
    Data center operations.--GAO is requested to review the 
operational costs of the Department's data centers from fiscal 
year 2006 through fiscal year 2008 and to report its findings 
to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later 
than June 1, 2009.
    Budget restructuring proposals.--All accounts within DOJ 
shall continue to use the fiscal year 2008 decision units and 
account structures unless otherwise specified in prior years or 
in the body of this explanatory statement.
    Representation funds for foreign field offices.--The lack 
of representation funds available for foreign field office 
staff to perform their official duties in stations outside of 
the continental United States is concerning. Agents in foreign 
field offices not only develop contacts with international law 
enforcement and intelligence agencies, but are also responsible 
for myriad other functions, including the detection and 
prevention of terrorism and crime, training, information 
sharing and responding to terrorist attacks internationally. 
These contacts serve a critical role in increasing Federal law 
enforcement's ability to identify and disrupt terrorist and 
criminal activity domestically. Therefore, FBI, ATF, the Drug 
Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the United States Marshals 
Service (USMS) are directed to increase the amount of 
representation funds requested for foreign field offices.

                 JUSTICE INFORMATION SHARING TECHNOLOGY

    The bill provides $80,000,000 for Justice Information 
Sharing Technology (JIST), which is $13,868,000 below the 
budget request.
    Cyber security.--No later than 60 days after the enactment 
of this Act, the Department is directed to report to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations on expected cyber 
security costs in the JIST account for fiscal year 2009 and the 
Department's plan for covering these costs without additional 
requested resources.
    Unified Financial Management System (UFMS).--Delays and 
other issues with the live deployment of UFMS at DEA have 
created concerns about the Department's ability to meet 
appropriate standards of success for this project. Rather than 
providing the relatively modest UFMS funding requested in this 
account, the bill focuses on fully funding the other important 
IT projects supported by JIST. Once the Department can 
demonstrate that UFMS deployment at DEA has proceeded 
successfully, a reprogramming will be considered to meet the 
UFMS project's projected 2009 needs. That reprogramming should 
include both those funds originally intended for reprogramming 
in 2009, as well as the balance of UFMS funds originally 
requested for appropriation in this account.

            TACTICAL LAW ENFORCEMENT WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS

    The bill provides $185,000,000 for Tactical Law Enforcement 
Wireless Communications, which is $63,349,000 above the budget 
request.
    Integrated Wireless Network (IWN).--The request for this 
account does not sufficiently address the Department's 
communications deficiencies and will contribute to the ongoing 
delays in the nationwide deployment of the IWN solution. 
Accordingly, the bill provides a total of $88,249,000 for IWN 
and directs the Department to use these funds for accelerated 
IWN deployment in high priority metropolitan regions. 
Consistent with planning materials submitted along with the 
budget request, the Department is directed to use these funds 
only for the modernization and improvement of land mobile radio 
(LMR) systems. Any plans related to secure cellular or data 
systems, or non-LMR tactical equipment, must be budgeted for 
and requested separately.
    To aid in program management and oversight, the Department 
is directed to set specific and detailed performance milestones 
for the use of IWN funds, including dates for planned 
completion. These milestones should be reported to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 60 days of the 
enactment of this Act, and quarterly updates should be provided 
on the Department's progress in meeting those milestones. 
Continued funding support for IWN in future years will be 
contingent on the Department's success in achieving its 
milestones within cost, schedule and performance expectations.

                   ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW AND APPEALS

    The bill provides $270,000,000 for Administrative Review 
and Appeals, including $267,613,000 for the Executive Office of 
Immigration Review (EOIR), which is $6,209,000 above the budget 
request. The appropriation is offset by $4,000,000 in fees that 
are collected by the Department of Homeland Security and 
transferred to EOIR.
    Hiring new immigration judges.--Within funds provided, 
$5,000,000 is made available to hire new immigration judges and 
support personnel to address the growing caseload. The 
Department and EOIR are directed, within 90 days of enactment 
of this Act, to submit to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations a strategic plan to address the case backlogs.
    Legal Orientation Program (LOP).--With funds provided in 
this bill and in prior year appropriations, EOIR is directed to 
provide not less than $4,000,000 for the LOP program during 
fiscal year 2009.
    Immigration court reforms.--Within 30 days of enactment of 
this Act, the Department is directed to report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on the implementation 
status of the 22 reform measures to improve the efficiency of 
immigration courts that were identified by the Attorney General 
in August, 2006.
    Competency evaluation standards.--EOIR is encouraged to 
work with experts and interested parties in developing 
standards and materials for immigration judges to use in 
conducting competency evaluations of persons appearing before 
the courts.
    The bill provides $2,387,000 for the Office of Pardon 
Attorney to support a total of 15 permanent positions and 15 
FTE.

                           Detention Trustee

    The bill provides $1,295,319,000 for the Office of the 
Detention Trustee (ODT), which is equal to the budget request.
    Immigration workload.--ODT appears to have significant 
difficulties accurately estimating its annual funding 
requirements, particularly with respect to its immigration 
workload. If additional immigration-related funding is required 
in excess of the amount provided herein, the Department may 
submit a reprogramming request to address those needs, 
consistent with section 505 of this Act.
    Population and cost data.--ODT is directed to report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on a quarterly 
basis the projected and actual number of individuals in the 
detention system, the annualized costs associated with those 
individuals and the costs reimbursed from other Federal 
agencies.
    District of Columbia prisoner reimbursement.--The 
Department's prisoner reimbursement agreement with the District 
of Columbia must be made consistent with the requirements set 
forth in the National Capital Revitalization Act of 1997. The 
Department is urged to work with the District government to 
review and update the reimbursable agreement in order to 
achieve the necessary consistency. The Department should 
immediately notify the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations if the updated agreement will require additional 
resources to implement.

                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

    The bill provides $75,681,000 for the Office of Inspector 
General. The Inspector General is expected to continue with 
diligent oversight of the Department's hiring, enforcement, 
prosecutorial and policy decision making in order to ensure 
integrity and public confidence.
    The Inspector General is commended for its continuing 
oversight of the FBI's use of National Security Letters and 
PATRIOT Act Section 215 orders, and is expected to continue its 
assessment of FBI progress in implementing corrective actions 
in these areas.
    Within funds provided, the Inspector General is expected to 
continue its review of the FBI's development and implementation 
of the Sentinel case management system, and to assess whether 
cost, schedule, performance and technical benchmarks are being 
met and whether the FBI has resolved concerns identified in its 
previous audits.

                    United States Parole Commission


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $12,570,000 for the United States Parole 
Commission for fiscal year 2009.

                            Legal Activities


            SALARIES AND EXPENSES, GENERAL LEGAL ACTIVITIES

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

    The bill provides a total of $804,007,000 for General Legal 
Activities for fiscal year 2009. The funding is provided as 
follows:
Solicitor General............................................$10,440,000
Tax Division.................................................101,016,000
Criminal Division............................................164,061,000
Civil Division...............................................270,431,000
Environment and Natural Resources............................103,093,000
Office of Legal Counsel....................................... 6,693,000
Civil Rights Division........................................123,151,000
INTERPOL--USNCB...............................................24,548,000
Office of Dispute Resolution..................................   574,000

    Federal Observer Program.--The bill provides $3,390,000 for 
the costs of the Federal Observer Program, which places 
election monitors in jurisdictions where the Attorney General 
certifies or a Federal judge orders that they are necessary to 
ensure free and fair elections.
    Criminal Division.--Within available funds, $1,800,000 is 
directed to be allocated for an additional 10 attorneys, six 
analysts and associated support personnel in the Criminal 
Division to investigate and prosecute individuals who violate 
Federal laws on serious human rights crimes, including but not 
limited to criminal statutes on genocide, torture and war 
crimes.

                 VACCINE INJURY COMPENSATION TRUST FUND

    The bill provides $7,833,000 for the Vaccine Injury 
Compensation Trust Fund.

               SALARIES AND EXPENSES, ANTITRUST DIVISION

    The bill includes $157,788,000 in budget authority for the 
Antitrust Division, $7,197,000 above the budget request, which 
is provided to lift the hiring freeze imposed during fiscal 
year 2008. This appropriation is offset by $157,788,000 in pre-
merger filing fee collections, resulting in a direct 
appropriation of $0.

             SALARIES AND EXPENSES, UNITED STATES ATTORNEYS

    The bill provides $1,836,336,000 for the salaries and 
expenses of the United States Attorneys in fiscal year 2009.
    Justice rooted in law, not in politics or favor, is a 
founding principle of our Nation. It is deeply troubling that 
partisan political considerations were a factor in the removal 
of several U.S. Attorneys fired in 2006. These actions severely 
damaged the Department's credibility. It is incumbent upon the 
Attorney General and U.S. Attorneys to restore public 
confidence in the integrity and impartiality of their 
prosecutorial decisions.
    Ethical and professional standards.--U.S. Attorneys are 
vested with enormous power, and it is their sworn duty to 
enforce the laws of this country fairly and impartially and to 
uphold the highest standards of ethical and professional 
conduct. The Inspector General and the Office of Professional 
Responsibility are directed to review allegations of misconduct 
and wrongdoing by U.S. Attorneys, and each to provide on a 
quarterly basis to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations a summary report on such incidents investigated 
and any significant findings issued as a result of the 
investigations.
    Child exploitation investigations and prosecutions.--The 
additional $5,000,000 above the budget request is made 
available to support the hiring of additional assistant U.S. 
Attorneys to increase investigations and prosecutions of 
offenses related to the sexual exploitation of children, as 
authorized by the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 
2006. Not less than $33,600,000 shall be available for this 
purpose in fiscal year 2009.
    Prosecution of serious crimes in Indian Country.--Due to 
evidence of declining rates of Federal investigation and 
prosecution of serious crimes in Indian Country, the Attorney 
General is directed to report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations, within 60 days of enactment of 
this Act, on the strategic and resource allocation plans for 
the prosecution of serious crimes in Indian Country, including 
murder and rape, which are reported to Federal law enforcement.

                   UNITED STATES TRUSTEE SYSTEM FUND

    The bill provides $217,416,000 for the United States 
Trustee System Fund. The appropriation is offset by 
$160,000,000 in offsetting fee collections and $5,000,000 
derived from interest on investments in U.S. securities, 
resulting in a direct appropriation of $52,416,000.
    Data-enabled ``smart forms.''--Developed jointly by the 
United States Trustee Program and the Administrative Office of 
the Courts, data-enabled ``smart forms'' for filing bankruptcy 
petitions and schedules are cost-effective tools which are 
encouraged to be used to improve efficiencies in the bankruptcy 
system.

      SALARIES AND EXPENSES, FOREIGN CLAIMS SETTLEMENT COMMISSION

    The bill provides $1,823,000 for salaries and expenses of 
the Foreign Claims Settlement Commission in fiscal year 2009.

                     FEES AND EXPENSES OF WITNESSES

    The bill provides $168,300,000 for Fees and Expenses of 
Witnesses, which is equal to the budget request.

           SALARIES AND EXPENSES, COMMUNITY RELATIONS SERVICE

    The bill provides $9,873,000 for salaries and expenses of 
the Community Relations Service in fiscal year 2009.

                         ASSETS FORFEITURE FUND

    The bill provides $20,990,000 for the Assets Forfeiture 
Fund, which is equal to the budget request.

                     United States Marshals Service


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $950,000,000 for the USMS, which is 
$16,883,000 above the budget request.
    Adam Walsh enforcement.--The Marshals Service has not 
requested the resources needed to carry out the 
responsibilities assigned to it under the Adam Walsh Child 
Protection and Safety Act. To fulfill these responsibilities, 
the bill provides an increase of $5,187,000, which should be 
used to improve sex offender targeting through the National Sex 
Offender Targeting Center and related efforts. These resources 
are in addition to the $16,970,000 provided for Adam Walsh 
enforcement in P.L. 110-252. Together, these appropriations 
will provide the Marshals with a total of $22,157,000 available 
for Adam Walsh enforcement activities in 2009.
    Judicial security.--The Marshals have reported that 2008 is 
on pace to record the highest annual number of judicial threats 
and inappropriate communications in history. To address this 
escalating workload, the Marshals are provided $4,000,000 to 
analyze and investigate threats against the Judiciary.
    In addition, the Marshals are urged to develop an 
aggressive schedule for the rollout of state-of-the-art 
detection capabilities at pilot high-threat courthouses around 
the country. These technologies will enhance courthouse 
security through the use of proven equipment, training and 
procedures to screen for and detect evolving threats. Special 
consideration should be given to those technologies that have 
been deployed and proven effective by other Federal agencies.
    Regional Fugitive Task Forces (RFTF).--The bill provides an 
increase of $10,000,000 to the RFTF program for the 
establishment of new, or expansion of existing, RFTFs. 
Distribution of these resources should be based on fugitive 
workload, giving emphasis to workload created by the Adam Walsh 
Act.

                              CONSTRUCTION

    The bill provides $4,000,000 for Marshals Construction, 
which is $1,696,000 above the budget request. These funds 
should be applied to the highest priority renovation projects 
identified by the Marshals.

                       National Security Division


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $83,789,000 for the National Security 
Division (NSD), which is equal to the budget request.
    Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) backlog.-- NSD 
is processing over 2,200 FISAs per year with only 100 
attorneys, which has led to the creation of a backlog among 
non-emergency FISA requests. NSD is directed to submit a report 
on the trend in FISA backlog numbers over the past 5 fiscal 
years and NSD's plan for addressing the backlog, beginning in 
fiscal year 2009. The report shall be submitted to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than 60 days 
after the enactment of this Act.
    Intelligence oversight.--NSD shall give immediate notice to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations if there are 
any significant deviations from the current plan to perform 18 
National Security Reviews of FBI investigative activity in 
fiscal year 2009.
    Foreign investment reviews.--NSD is directed to submit a 
report on the Division's foreign investment review workload and 
the Division's ability to address this workload in the absence 
of additional requested resources. The report shall be 
submitted to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
no later than 60 days after the enactment of this Act.

                      Interagency Law Enforcement


                 INTERAGENCY CRIME AND DRUG ENFORCEMENT

    The bill provides $515,000,000 for the Organized Crime and 
Drug Enforcement Task Forces, which is $16,581,000 below the 
budget request.

                    Federal Bureau of Investigation


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $7,065,100,000 for the salaries and 
expenses of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which is 
equal to the budget request.
    Deployment aircraft.--The funding level provided does not 
include $20,040,000 that was requested for an emergency 
deployment aircraft lease. The costs of that lease were funded 
in P.L. 110-252.
    Pay modernization.--The bill does not include the requested 
funds for pay modernization because it remains unclear how the 
Bureau can implement an Intelligence Community-driven 
evaluation and compensation system within an organization with 
significant resources outside of the Intelligence Community. 
Once this and other issues are clarified, requests for this 
purpose may be resubmitted for consideration in the fiscal year 
2010 budget.
    National Security Analysis Center (NSAC).--The budget 
request included an enhancement of $10,777,000 for NSAC. This 
funding has not been included in the bill due to two major 
concerns. First, FBI's written materials relating to NSAC 
expansion reference plans to engage in controversial 
``predictive'' modeling practices that could violate the 
privacy and civil liberties of law abiding U.S. citizens. 
Second, the FBI has not completed, or submitted, the planning 
and implementation documentation necessary to ensure that the 
NSAC will be responsibly developed and deployed in accordance 
with policy, schedule and budget requirements.
    If the FBI believes that enhanced NSAC funding is required, 
those funds may be requested via reprogramming or in a future 
appropriation request. However, the provision of those funds 
will be conditioned on the receipt and consideration of the 
following items: written clarification of NSAC's intentions 
with respect to the use of ``predictive'' behavior modeling; a 
detailed spending plan and deployment schedule with dates for 
key milestones; and completed planning documentation, including 
an Exhibit 300, an updated System of Records Notice, a Privacy 
Impact Assessment and a concept of operations or other similar 
implementation guide.
    Intellectual property enforcement.-- The bill provides an 
increase of $9,393,000 for additional agents, dedicated solely 
to investigating criminal intellectual property rights (IPR) 
cases, in the same localities of the Department's Computer 
Hacking and Intellectual Property (CHIP) units. The funding 
level provided will allow the addition of two agents in each of 
the field offices in the same locality as those CHIP units 
which the Attorney General has determined most merit assistance 
in IPR investigations, with no less than 26 agents assigned for 
this purpose.
    The funding level also provides for the creation of an 
additional and distinct operational unit at FBI Headquarters 
with at least 5 full-time, permanent agents dedicated to 
working with the Department of Justice's Computer Crime and 
Intellectual Property Section solely on complex, multi-district 
and international criminal IPR cases. The agents appropriated 
for this section shall solely investigate and support the 
criminal prosecution of violations of federal intellectual 
property laws, including Title 17 United States Code, sections 
506 and 1204; Title 18 U.S. Code, sections 1831, 1832, 2318, 
2319, 2319A, 2319B, and 2320.
    Mortgage fraud investigations.--The FBI's White Collar 
Crime program is straining to keep pace with a mortgage fraud 
caseload that has increased by more than 55 percent since 2003. 
To address this problem, the bill provides an increase of 
$10,000,000 for the FBI to dedicate additional agents to 
mortgage fraud investigations and add to existing mortgage 
fraud task forces and working groups.
    Child exploitation investigations.--The bill provides an 
increase of $19,000,000 for FBI child exploitation 
investigations, including an increase of no less than 
$9,000,000 for the Innocent Images program.
    Foreign human rights violators.--The FBI is directed to 
increase efforts to investigate and support the criminal 
prosecution of serious human rights crimes committed by foreign 
nationals who have found safe haven in the United States. The 
bill provides an increase of $1,500,000 to support these 
activities.
    Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division.--
CJIS is provided $558,000,000, including $307,000,000 in 
appropriated funds and $251,000,000 in user fees. As in prior 
years, under no circumstances is the FBI to divert funding 
collected through CJIS user fees for any purpose other than 
CJIS, its refreshment plan or a subsequent modernization plan 
for the current facility.
    Retention and relocation.--The FBI is encouraged to 
continue working with the FBI Agents Association to ameliorate 
the impact on affected agents of the FBI's Field Office 
Supervisory Term Limit policy.
    Foreign intelligence collection.--The FBI's new tasking to 
collect non-case related foreign intelligence may dilute the 
FBI's primary missions and cause coordination problems with 
other agencies whose missions have always included foreign 
intelligence activities. The FBI is directed to report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 60 days of 
the enactment of this Act on how the Bureau will engage in 
foreign intelligence collection without duplicating or 
conflicting with activities already underway at those other 
agencies with longstanding foreign intelligence missions.
    Long-term planning.--The FBI has experienced a very high 
rate of budget growth over the past seven years but seems 
unable to clearly articulate how much longer this kind of 
growth is going to be necessary. The ``end-state capabilities'' 
already submitted by the FBI are too vaguely defined to be used 
in strategic planning or budgetary decision making. 
Consequently, the FBI is directed to develop more discrete, 
quantifiable end-state goals and to submit those goals to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations together with the 
fiscal year 2010 budget request.
    National Security Letters (NSLs).--There has been little 
evidence that the FBI has a plan in place to work with third 
party information providers to educate them about their 
responsibilities and to reduce the incidence of mistaken 
productions of content and other information under an NSL. The 
FBI is directed to report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations within 60 days of the enactment of this Act on 
the steps it is taking to reduce and prevent third party NSL 
errors.
    Sentinel.--The FBI is expected to inform immediately the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations of any 
significant deviations from the planned budget or schedule for 
the Sentinel project.
    FBI Headquarters building.--The J. Edgar Hoover Building is 
inadequate for the current FBI Headquarters workforce, causing 
dispersal of FBI staff to over 16 annex offices. The building 
also lacks adequate setback and other security features, which 
puts FBI operations and personnel at unacceptable risk. The GAO 
is directed to review the Hoover Building, and associated off-
site locations, and provide an analysis of the FBI's ability to 
fulfill its mission and security requirements under present 
conditions. The GAO study should also assess the benefits of a 
consolidated headquarters facility.
    Work force distribution.--The FBI was extremely tardy in 
submitting a workforce study required by the statement 
accompanying P.L. 110-161. The FBI is directed to take all 
necessary steps to ensure that such tardiness does not recur 
with this year's reporting requirements.
    Achieving the proper distribution of staff to field offices 
around the country remains a concern. As the FBI considers the 
distribution of agents received in this appropriation, the 
Bureau is encouraged to consider the allocation of agents to 
locations that would alleviate any unjustified disparities in 
the number of personnel among offices.

                              CONSTRUCTION

    The bill provides $153,491,000, which is $110,500,000 above 
the budget request.
    Program increases.--Within funds provided, $9,800,000 is 
for improvements at the FBI Academy and $41,000,000 is for the 
Terrorist Explosives Device Analytical Center.

                    Drug Enforcement Administration


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $1,939,084,000 for the Drug Enforcement 
Administration (DEA), which is $2,500,000 above the budget 
request.
    Drug Flow Attack Strategy (DFAS).-- The bill fully supports 
the DFAS request, with the exception of funds to purchase a 
helicopter. Funding for that purpose was provided in P.L. 110-
252.
    Diversion control program.--Full funding of $244,450,000 is 
provided for the Diversion Control program, which is fully 
offset with fee collections. This funding level includes an 
increase of $498,000 for the Diversion Control portion of DFAS.
    Mobile Enforcement Teams (MET).--The bill provides an 
increase of $10,000,000 to allow DEA to begin rebuilding the 
MET program, both through the establishment of additional teams 
and by increasing the funds available for existing teams. The 
activities of MET should continue to include a focus on 
methamphetamine enforcement.
    Drugs on public lands.--DEA is urged to work with Federal 
land management agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service and 
National Park Service, and State and local law enforcement 
partners to aggressively and permanently eradicate marijuana 
and other drug operations on public lands. DEA is also strongly 
urged to increase the resources provided to investigate, 
apprehend and prosecute drug trafficking on public lands and to 
target those resources to areas with the highest concentration 
of trafficking activity.

          Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $1,054,215,000 for the Bureau of Alcohol, 
Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), which is $26,401,000 
above the budget request.
    Program increases.--The bill provides a total increase over 
the budget request of $26,401,000, of which no less than 
$200,000 is for the hiring of additional regulation writers to 
address ATF's pending regulatory backlog and no less than 
$5,000,000 is for Project Gunrunner and other firearms 
trafficking efforts targeting Mexico and the border region. 
Project Gunrunner has been an effective tool in combating anti-
smuggling efforts along the Southwest border, and ATF is 
encouraged to make sure that sufficient resources are allocated 
to this important program.
    Ballistics imaging and identification.--High-tech 
ballistics imaging and identification capabilities are very 
valuable and have been improved over time by significant 
investments on the part of State and local law enforcement 
partners in building the current data base. ATF is encouraged 
to ensure that ballistic imaging technology is routinely 
refreshed, upgraded and deployed to those State and local 
partners. Further, ATF is expected to ensure that upgrades and 
replacements for ballistic imaging technology take into account 
the resources already invested by those State and local 
partners.
    Conversion of records.--ATF is urged to complete the 
conversion of tens of thousands of existing Federal firearms 
dealer out-of-business records from film to digital images at 
the ATF National Tracing Center.
    Disposition of historical documents.--ATF is currently in 
possession of a letter signed by Alexander Hamilton on December 
18, 1790. This letter reflects Hamilton's efforts to pay down 
Revolutionary War debt through the imposition of duties on 
distilled liquor. ATF is directed to provide immediately this 
letter to the National Archives and Records Administration for 
historical preservation and study.
    Canine transport conditions.--ATF headquarters' recent 
decision to shrink the size of the vehicles used by the 34 ATF 
explosive detection canine teams as a cost-savings mechanism is 
both disappointing and shortsighted. DOJ spends, at a minimum, 
$20,000 to train these assets, which are housed in agent 
vehicles while on deployment and while working to ensure public 
safety. The canines require reasonable comfortable space to not 
only work, but also to rest if they are to be effective when 
called upon to perform. ATF shall only purchase vehicles for 
explosive detection canine teams that provide no less usable 
space for the dog than the vehicles they are meant to replace. 
ATF shall submit a report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations 30 days after enactment of this Act certifying 
that this directive is being met.

                         Federal Prison System


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $5,595,754,000 for the salaries and 
expenses of the Federal Prison System for fiscal year 2009, 
which is an increase of $160,000,000 above the budget request.
    Several years of insufficient budget requests have led to a 
critical juncture for the Federal Prison System--in terms of 
safety and security for inmates and staff. The additional funds 
are provided to support adequate correctional staffing levels 
and to address shortfalls in inmate programs. Within 30 days of 
enactment of this Act, the Department is directed to submit a 
spend plan to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, with a proposed distribution of funds across 
the four Bureau of Prisons (BOP) decision units and which 
specifically details the allocation of the $160,000,000 funding 
increase. Further, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) 
is directed to review BOP's methods for determining resource 
requirements, including pricing of fixed costs such as 
utilities and medical care, as well as estimates of the inmate 
population. The GAO should make recommendations to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations on steps BOP should 
take to develop more accurate projections of funding 
requirements no later than August 31, 2009.
    Substance abuse treatment.--Forty percent of inmates 
entering Federal prisons have a drug use disorder and require 
residential drug abuse treatment. Despite the Violent Crime 
Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which requires such 
treatment to be provided, an estimated 8,000 eligible inmates 
were put on the waiting list during fiscal year 2008. The 
fiscal year 2009 budget request did not address this shortfall. 
Within amounts appropriated, $79,200,000 is made available to 
provide residential and transitional drug abuse treatment for 
all eligible inmates.
    Inmate education, training and prisoner re-entry.--Within 
amounts appropriated, $138,000,000 is provided to reduce the 
backlog of inmates waiting to participate in education, 
vocational training and prisoner re-entry programs, which are 
cost effective tools in reducing the societal impacts of 
criminal recidivism.
    Reimbursement for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement 
(ICE) detainees.--The Attorney General is directed to work with 
the Department of Homeland Security to transfer expeditiously 
the estimated 700 ICE detainees who are currently housed in the 
Federal Prison System, or to obtain prompt and fair 
reimbursement from ICE for the costs of incarcerating them. The 
Attorney General is further directed to report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations not later than 60 days 
after enactment of this Act on actions taken to comply with 
this direction. In addition, the Attorney General is directed, 
on a quarterly basis, to report to the Committees on the costs 
incurred by BOP and the reimbursements received for housing ICE 
detainees and inmates of other Federal and State agencies.
    Staffing levels and staff-inmate ratios.--On a monthly 
basis, the BOP is directed to notify the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations of current correctional officer 
staffing levels, by facility, and of the staff-inmate ratios 
for all Federal prisons.
    National Institute of Corrections (NIC).--The budget 
proposal to eliminate funding for the NIC is rejected. The NIC 
provides valuable training and services, including research and 
evaluation, technical assistance, information sharing and 
planning to State and local adult corrections agencies, the BOP 
and other Federal agencies. The Department is encouraged to 
submit a reprogramming request if sufficient funds are not 
available within BOP for this effort. To address deficiencies 
in corrections reporting identified by the U.S. Census Bureau, 
the NIC is encouraged to work with State corrections agencies 
to develop better procedures and systems for collecting and 
maintaining corrections records.
    Inmate medical care.--The BOP is currently experiencing a 
shortage of dentists, which is expected to worsen due to 
retirements and retention difficulties. BOP is directed to 
report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by 
February 19, 2009, on its current and projected dentist 
staffing needs and its plans to address this situation.
    Prevention of sexual misconduct.--The BOP is to be 
commended for its work to address and prevent sexual 
misconduct. With funds provided in previous years, the NIC has 
made meaningful progress in providing training and technical 
support to correctional systems throughout the country to 
eliminate staff sexual misconduct with inmates, provide 
training in investigating cases, and training the ``trainers'' 
in order that employees at every level will be more aware of, 
and better prepared to deal with, these cases. The BOP is 
directed to continue these efforts and to report to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations by March 31, 2009, on 
progress made in this area.
    Contracting out.--The bill includes a general provision to 
prohibit the use of funds to conduct, process or approve a 
public-private competition under OMB Circular A-76 for 
personnel who are employees of the BOP or of Federal Prison 
Industries, Incorporated. This provision does not prevent BOP 
from meeting additional bed space needs using State, local, and 
private existing and new prison capacity.
    Activations and expansions.--The BOP is expected to adhere 
to the activation schedule included in its budget submission, 
and shall notify the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations of any deviations to that schedule.

                        BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES

    The bill provides $575,807,000 for the construction, 
modernization, maintenance, and repair of prison and detention 
facilities housing Federal inmates. Within this amount, 
$440,000,000 is provided for new prison construction and 
$110,627,000 is provided to address the significant backlog of 
major health and safety repairs in Federal prison facilities. 
The BOP is directed to provide quarterly reports to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations on its backlog of 
maintenance and repairs, and its schedule for addressing them.
    Female inmate facilities.--Additional capacity for female 
inmates at new facilities will significantly reduce crowding in 
this population, thereby enhancing safety and security.
    Within funds provided, the BOP is expected to begin site 
selection and development, environmental assessment and 
feasibility, planning, and initial design work to build an FCI 
in Leavenworth, Kansas.
    Reprogramming limitation.--The bill includes language 
directing that BOP may not transfer ``Buildings and 
Facilities'' appropriations to cover ``Salaries and Expenses'' 
costs unless the President certifies that such a transfer is 
necessary to the national security interest of the United 
States, and also subjects any such transfer to section 505 of 
this Act.

   LIMITATION ON ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES, FEDERAL PRISON INDUSTRIES, 
                              INCORPORATED

    The bill provides a limitation on administrative expenses 
of $2,328,000 for Federal Prison Industries, Incorporated. 
Those who are repaying their debts to society should be 
provided opportunities to prepare themselves to re-enter 
society as gainfully employed citizens. The Department is 
expected to continue to offer meaningful work opportunities to 
inmates while respecting the interests of small and medium-
sized businesses.

    Native American/Native Alaskan Liaison Office.--The bill 
includes $400,000 for the State of Alaska, Native American/
Native Alaskan Liaison Office for the purposes of combating 
sexual assault and domestic violence. These funds may also be 
distributed to nonprofit entities that provide services, such 
as a crisis hotline, services to victims of sexual assault or 
domestic violence in rural areas, and medical assistance to 
victims.
    Salaries and expenses.--The bill establishes a new salaries 
and expenses account to fund the management and administrative 
costs of OVW and other Justice Department grant programs. No 
administrative overhead costs shall be deducted from the 
programs funded from this account.

                       Office of Justice Programs


                           JUSTICE ASSISTANCE

    The bill provides $220,000,000 for Justice Assistance for 
fiscal year 2009, as follows:

                        [In thousands of dollars]

        Program                                               Conference

    Office of Justice Programs (OJP) budgetary and programmatic 
transparency.--The OJP is directed to provide detailed 
personnel, contract and other cost information, by program, for 
Management and Administration and Office of Audit, Assessment, 
and Management (OAAM) activities in its fiscal year 2010 budget 
justifications.
    Fairness and objectivity in the award of competitive 
grants.--Allegations have been leveled that the Department 
steered fiscal year 2007 juvenile justice grants to favored 
recipients instead of awarding them to deserving grantees who 
ranked more highly in a peer-reviewed process. The Department 
is directed to report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations within 30 days of enactment of this Act, on the 
findings of its internal review of the 2007 grants process and 
awards, including corrective actions taken. The Inspector 
General is also directed to conduct an independent review of 
this 2007 grant award process and report expeditiously to the 
same Committees.
    Transparency in research decisions.-- The OJP is expected 
to improve transparency in research funding decisions, and is 
directed, within 60 days of enactment and prior to obligation 
of any funds, to provide a detailed report and spend plan on 
all National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and the Bureau of 
Justice Statistics (BJS) research activities, including their 
funding sources. The Department is also expected to produce 
detailed justification information on the research priorities 
assumed in the fiscal year 2010 budget request.
    National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS).--Within funds 
provided for BJS, $26,000,000 is made available for the NCVS, 
which since the 1970s has been a critical resource to improve 
the understanding of the costs and context of crime 
victimization in the United States. To improve the usefulness 
of the NCVS, BJS is urged to implement the recommendations of 
the National Research Council's recent report, Surveying 
Victims: Options for Conducting the National Crime 
Victimization Survey. NIJ is also encouraged to implement the 
Council's recommendation to develop, promote and coordinate 
sub-national victimization surveys.
    NIJ sole-source contracts.--The Attorney General is 
directed to submit to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, within 90 days of enactment of this Act, a plan 
that establishes competitive processes, criteria, and oversight 
measures to ensure that NIJ awards for studies, seminars and 
other activities are conducted in a fair, objective and ethical 
manner.
    Regional Information Sharing System (RISS).--Within amounts 
provided for RISS, funds shall be available to continue funding 
existing local-to-local law enforcement data and information 
sharing programs focused on solving routine crimes, especially 
in rural areas, by sharing law enforcement information not 
categorized as criminal intelligence by the owning law 
enforcement agency.
    DNA and forensics.--Within funds appropriated for NIJ, 
$3,000,000 is for DNA and forensics research, of which $500,000 
shall be transferred to the National Institute of Standards and 
Technology Office of Law Enforcement Standards to support the 
development of standards for quality and proficiency in 
Federal, State and local crime laboratories.
    Forensic science education.--Based on findings of a 
Department panel on forensic science education, the NIJ 
established the Forensic Science Education Program 
Accreditation Commission. However, no Federal link has yet been 
established between the Department and the Commission to 
implement the recommended universal standards. Within 60 days 
of enactment of this Act, the NIJ is directed to report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the actions 
taken to implement recommended standards.
    Victim notification.--The bill provides $12,000,000 for the 
Bureau of Justice Assistance to continue the State Automated 
Victim Notification grant program to allow States to join the 
National Victim Notification Network. No funding may be 
utilized from within the Victims Assistance Program for this 
initiative and funds provided under this heading shall require 
a 50 percent match from State, local, and private sources.
    Pregnant and parenting offenders.--The NIJ is encouraged to 
examine the potential of family-based treatment as an effective 
sentencing alternative for non-violent drug offenders who are 
pregnant or the parents of minor children.
    Salaries and expenses.--The bill establishes a new salaries 
and expenses account to fund the management and administrative 
costs of OJP and other Justice Department grant programs. No 
administrative overhead costs shall be deducted from the 
programs funded from this account.

               STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSISTANCE

    The bill provides $1,328,500,000 for State and Local Law

    Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program 
(JAG).--The bill provides $546,000,000 for JAG formula grants. 
Funding under this program is authorized for law enforcement 
programs; prosecution and court programs; prevention and 
education programs; corrections and community corrections 
programs; drug treatment and enforcement programs; planning, 
evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and crime 
victim and witness programs, other than compensation. Funding 
is not available for vehicles, vessels, or aircraft; luxury 
items; real estate; or construction projects. Of the amount 
provided, $2,000,000 is for intelligence training for State and 
local law enforcement entities; and $5,000,000 is for the 
National Institute of Justice to help local units of government 
to identify, select, develop, modernize and purchase new 
technologies for use by law enforcement.
    Within the funds provided, $7,000,000 shall be available to 
reimburse State and local law enforcement for security and 
related costs, including overtime, associated with the security 
requirements required to protect the President-elect during the 
Presidential transition period. These funds shall be allocated 
by the Department of Justice to State and local law enforcement 
entities that can document increased costs over and above 
normal law enforcement operations, which are directly 
attributable to security for the President-elect. Within the 
funds provided, $20,000,000 is also included to reimburse State 
and local governments for security and other expenses related 
to the 2009 Presidential Inauguration. Not later than 30 days 
after enactment of this Act, the Department is directed to 
provide a report and spend plan to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations, which details the criteria and 
methodology that will be used to award these grants.
    Byrne competitive grants.--$30,000,000 is made available 
for Byrne competitive, peer-reviewed grants to programs of 
national significance to prevent crime, improve the 
administration of justice or assist victims of crime. Within 90 
days of enactment of this Act, the OJP is directed to provide a 
report and spend plan to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, which details the criteria and methodology that 
will be used to award these grants. It is expected that 
national programs that have previously received funding under 
the Byrne discretionary program will be eligible to compete for 
funding under this competitive grant program, including 
programs for which specific amounts are designated in this Act.
    Byrne discretionary grants.--The bill provides $178,500,000 
for Byrne discretionary grants to prevent crime, to improve the 
criminal justice system, to provide victims' services and for 
other similar activities. The accompanying table details

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

    Justice for All Act--capital litigation and wrongful 
prosecution review.--The bill provides $5,500,000 for capital 
litigation and wrongful prosecution review grants. Of this

methodology that will be used to award these new grants.
    Tribal government funding.--The bill rejects the proposal 
to discontinue specific set-asides for tribal law enforcement, 
correctional facility construction, courts and juvenile justice 
programs. There is no evidence that the Department consulted 
with tribal governments on this proposal. These existing OJP 
and COPS programs are critical to implementing the public 
safety and justice priorities of tribal leaders throughout 
Indian Country. Further, it is unacceptable that the Department 
failed, in 2008, to complete a review and report to the House 
and Senate Appropriations Committees on the state of existing 
tribal detention facilities and the need for new capacity. By 
May 15, 2009, the Department is directed to complete this 
review and to report to the Appropriations Committees on its 
findings, including recommendations and actions that have or 
will be taken to address these needs.
    Hal Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program.--The bill 
includes $7,000,000 for the Prescription Drug Monitoring 
Program to assist States in building or enhancing prescription 
drug monitoring systems, facilitating the exchange of 
information among States, and providing technical assistance 
and training on establishing and operating effective 
prescription drug monitoring programs. The OJP is expected to 
work with the DEA to implement this program.
    Prison rape prevention and prosecution.--The bill includes 
$12,500,000 for prison rape prevention and prosecution 
activities. The Attorney General is required to promulgate

of the National Prison Rape Elimination Commission. These funds 
are provided for purposes authorized under Public Law 108-79, 
such as the work of the Commission; mandated statistics, data 
and research; prevention and prosecution assistance; and grants 
to protect inmates and safeguard communities. The Department 
shall report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations not later than 90 days after the enactment of 
this Act on the proposed distribution of funding among 
authorized activities under this program.
    Economic, high-tech and cybercrime prevention.--The bill 
provides $18,000,000 for competitive grants to support and 
train State and local law enforcement agencies in the 
prevention, investigation and prosecution of economic, high-
tech and Internet crimes, which shall be administered by the 
Bureau of Justice Assistance. Within funds provided, up to 
$3,000,000 is available for new competitive grants to State and 
local law enforcement entities to combat these crimes, 
including the intellectual property crimes of counterfeiting 
and piracy. None of the funds provided for this program shall 
be diverted for research.
    Missing Alzheimer's Disease Patient Program.--The bill 
provides $2,000,000 for Missing Alzheimer's Disease Patient 
Program grants, which shall be awarded competitively and shall 
be administered by the Bureau of Justice Assistance.
    National Motor Vehicle Title Information System Program.--
The Department is directed to report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations within 90 days of enactment, on 
the status of the National Motor Vehicle Title Information 
System program, and its recommendations to achieve 
implementation.
    SEARCH National Technical Assistance and Training 
Program.--The Department is encouraged to support efforts to 
assist States in the development and use of information through 
criminal justice information systems to accelerate the 
automation of their fingerprints identification processes and 
criminal justice data identification processes so that State 
and local law enforcement which are compatible with the FBI's 
Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System.
    Salaries and expenses.--The bill establishes a new salaries 
and expenses account to fund the management and administrative 
costs of OJP and other Justice Department grant programs. No 
administrative overhead costs shall be deducted from the 
programs and projects funded from this account.

                       WEED AND SEED PROGRAM FUND

    The bill provides $25,000,000 for the Weed and Seed Program 
for fiscal year 2009.

    Fairness and objectivity in the award of competitive 
grants.--As discussed under the Justice Assistance account, the 
Department is directed to report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations within 30 days of enactment of 
this Act, on the findings of its internal review of the 2007 
grants process and awards, including corrective actions taken. 
The Inspector General is also directed to conduct an 
independent review of this 2007 grant award process and report 
expeditiously to the same Committees.

national, regional and local organizations in mentoring at risk 
children and youth, $80,000,000 is provided for competitive, 
peer-reviewed youth mentoring grants. Within 90 days of 
enactment of this Act, OJP is directed to provide a report and 
spend plan to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, which details the criteria and methodology that 
will be used to award these grants. It is expected that

                             AGENCY SUMMARY

    Reporting of cost, schedule and content for NASA research 
and development projects.--To better understand the underlying 
issues common to NASA's performance on major projects and to 
develop a process for identifying corrective action, the Fiscal 
Year 2008 Consolidated Appropriations Act mandated the 
Government Accountability Office (GAO) to report on the status 
of large-scale NASA programs, projects and activities. This 
report is to be delivered to the Congress semiannually, the 
first of which shall be delivered in advance of the annual 
budget submission of the President for fiscal year 2010. To 
that end, NASA is directed to cooperate fully and to provide 
timely program analysis, evaluation data and relevant 
information to the GAO so that it can conduct this review and 
meet the annual Congressional mandate. Such information 
includes, but is not limited to, copies of preliminary cost 
estimates, access to relevant online agency applications, 
databases, and web portals, and access to information from 
contractor and agency personnel.
    Breach reporting.--Pursuant to section 103 of Public Law 
109-155, the NASA Authorization Act of 2005, NASA is required 
to deliver several reports to the appropriate authorizing 
committees when project costs grow in excess of certain 
thresholds. NASA shall submit concurrently to the House and 
Senate Committee on Appropriations the reports required by 
section 103 of Public Law 109-155.
    Space Shuttle transition and retirement costs.--To ensure 
the Congress has a complete accounting of the full costs 
associated with Space Shuttle transition and retirement, NASA 
is directed to develop an estimate to include:
    (1) not only those funds necessary within the Space Shuttle 
program, but all funds needed outside the Space Shuttle program 
that are necessary to support Space Shuttle transition and 
retirement activities;
    (2) funds necessary under Cross Agency Support needed to 
support transition and retirement, including environmental 
compliance and remediation, of the Space Shuttle program;
    (3) the gross and net proceeds from exchange sales of 
excess Space Shuttle equipment;
    (4) the costs to maintain required facilities at Kennedy 
Space Center during the gap in human spaceflight;
    (5) the costs associated with preservation of historic 
properties; and
    (6) the costs of workforce transition.
    Accordingly, the bill includes a provision that requires 
NASA to provide by February 2, 2009, to the Committees on 
Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives a 
report detailing the total and annual costs by fiscal year of 
Space Shuttle transition and retirement costs. Such data shall 
be presented for fiscal years 2006 through 2015 by mission 
directorate, program, activity and object class.
    Public availability of scientific information.--NASA is 
directed to implement all recommendations by the Inspector 
General related to its review of public availability of 
scientific information and to report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations not later than March 2, 2009.
    Contract oversight and management.--NASA is directed to 
incorporate independent cost verification as part of the 
process by which contracts are selected and monitored. NASA is 
to report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
within 60 days of enactment of the Act of its plans and 
progress in implementing this directive.
    NASA is further directed to notify the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations in writing 30 days prior to 
allocating funds, or modifying or extending existing contracts 
that are in excess of 15 percent of the original contract 
value.
    Within 45 days of enactment of this Act, NASA shall provide 
a report delineating the original baseline amount and schedule 
for each program with a life cycle cost of $100,000,000 or 
more. The report shall also include the current baseline 
amount, confidence level and financial and delivery schedule 
for each such program.
    Reprogramming procedures.--The levels against which 
reprogrammings are to be reported require further 
clarification. Accordingly, a summary table by mission 
directorate delineates each program, project and activity 
against which the reprogramming thresholds are to be measured. 
This display in no way curtails NASA's current flexibility in 
managing its diverse portfolio of research and development and 
operational programs. Rather, it will require NASA to inform 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations of any 
deviations, subject to the thresholds specified in section 505 
of this Act, from the levels explicit in the agency's budget 
justification, as adjusted for congressional action, as shown 
in the accompanying summary table. In any reprogramming request 
and operating plan, NASA shall include the out-year budget and 
schedule impacts of the proposed reallocation of funds.
    For purposes of the reprogramming guidelines, a new program 
shall be defined as any program, project or activity for which 
funds were not requested or provided in the current fiscal 
year, except those resulting from a competitive selection made 
pursuant to ongoing programs authorized by Congress. However, 
implementation of this limitation shall preclude initiation or 
resumption of activities pursuant to competitive solicitations 
for ongoing NASA programs if funding for that specific program, 
project or activity had been previously deferred due to lack of 
funds and/or were unrequested in the current fiscal year.
    Financial data disclosure.--NASA shall include the out-year 
budget and schedule impacts in any reprogramming request, 
operating plan, and budget submission. In addition, NASA shall 
include a separate accounting of all program reserves and 
carryover funds by program, project and activity.
    The funding provided for NASA is delineated more fully in 
the table below and in the account summaries. 

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

                                SCIENCE

    The bill provides $4,503,019,000 for science, an increase 
of $61,500,000 over the budget request. The amount provided 
reflects an unallocated adjustment of $70,898,000 and reflects 
unobligated balances carried into fiscal year 2009 from fiscal 
year 2008. NASA shall within 30 days of enactment of this Act 
provide to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
its proposed distribution of the unallocated adjustment. In 
doing so, NASA shall identify offsets that do not result in 
delays or cancellations of missions in development or the 
cancellation of any selected projects, and shall not identify 
as offsets any increases provided above the request expressly 
provided by Congress.
    Earth science.--NASA's Earth science portfolio shall have a 
continuous mixture of small-, medium-, and observatory class 
Earth science missions that guarantee regular and recurring 
flight opportunities for the Earth science communities.
    Earth decadal survey missions.--A total of $150,000,000 is 
provided for Earth decadal survey missions. Funds are provided 
to support on-going activities of the ICESat II and SMAP 
missions. In addition, funds are provided to accelerate and 
achieve a level of system development more consistent with the 
National Academy of Sciences' recommendations. The bill 
provides funds to accelerate the ICESat II mission so that it 
will be ready to launch in 2013 concurrently with the SMAP 
mission, consistent with the National Academy of Sciences' 
recommendations.
    Landsat data continuity mission (LDCM).--Funding of 
$10,000,000 is provided to initiate development of a thermal 
infra-red sensor (TSIS). NASA is directed to identify the 
earliest and least expensive development approach and flight 
opportunity for TSIS. NASA shall report its findings to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations not later than 
March 2, 2009.
    NASA is further directed to develop, in cooperation with 
the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the U.S. 
Geological Survey (USGS), a plan for a follow-on mission to 
LDCM consistent with the recommendations of the National 
Science and Technology Council's report, A Plan for A U.S. 
National Land Imaging Program. This plan is due to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations no later than August 
31, 2009.
    Earth science applications program.--The bill provides 
$10,000,000 over the budget request for Earth science 
applications under the Research Opportunities in Space and 
Earth Sciences (ROSES) program, which shall be available to 
support new competitively-selected projects under subsection 
A.28, Earth Science For Decision Making: Gulf of Mexico Region, 
to be selected during fiscal year 2009.
    Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR).--The bill provides 
$9,000,000 for NASA to refurbish and ensure flight and 
operational readiness of DSCOVR earth science instruments.
    Servicing Opportunities for Science Missions.--Recognizing 
the historic successes NASA has achieved through the servicing 
of the Hubble Space Telescope, the National Research Council's 
recent report Launching Science: Science Opportunities Provided 
by NASA's Constellation System recommends that ``NASA should 
study the benefits of designing spacecraft intended to operate 
around Earth or the Moon, or at the libration points for human 
and robotic servicing.'' This recommendation parallels the 
guidance provided by section 502 of the NASA Authorization Act 
of 2008 (P.L. 110-422), which recommends that provision be made 
for servicing of future scientific spacecraft to the extent 
practicable. Therefore, it will be critical that the 
Constellation program demonstrate unique capabilities to 
maintain synergies between free-flying scientific spacecraft 
and human spaceflight endeavors. Accordingly, the bill provides 
$20,000,000 for NASA to undertake an assessment of the 
feasibility of using the Constellation architecture to service 
existing and future observatory-class scientific spacecraft, 
fully utilizing the unique, core expertise and competencies for 
in-space servicing developed by the Goddard Space Flight Center 
and its private sector partners for the Hubble Space Telescope. 
NASA shall provide to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations a plan for expenditure of this funding no later 
than 30 days after enactment of this Act.
    Lunar landers.--The bill provides, as requested, 
$10,000,000 for the selected lunar lander.
    Mars exploration.--NASA shall continue to engage the Mars 
community to define missions for the next decade that will lead 
to a Mars sample return in the 2020s. NASA is encouraged to 
define a budget profile for the Mars exploration program to 
support a lander mission and follow-on missions through 2020; 
consider augmenting technology to be demonstrated as part of 
the 2013 Scout; and support the small, competitively-selected 
missions such as Mars Scouts.
    Mars science laboratory (MSL).--The bill provides the 
budget request of $223,331,000 for MSL. Over the past several 
months, NASA, with the concurrence of the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations, has taken reprogramming actions 
to address continuing project cost increases and to maintain a 
launch schedule in 2009; however, slower-than-expected 
progress, combined with late completion and deliveries of 
hardware, has contributed to deterioration in schedule 
performance. As a result, NASA has informed the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on December 4, 2008, of its 
decision to delay a 2009 launch. The relative orbital location 
of Mars and Earth dictates that the next launch opportunity is 
2011. However, in order to support a 2011 launch, NASA will 
need to identify additional resources in the range of 
$400,000,000. NASA is directed to provide to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations not later than February 2, 
2009, the impact on the project's baseline development cost 
estimate consistent with reporting requirements of section 103 
of the NASA Authorization Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-155); and 
proposed resource allocations necessary to meet a 2011 launch. 
A reallocation of this magnitude can be expected to have 
significant impacts on other projects, and accordingly, NASA is 
directed to consult with the space science community to ensure 
its views are taken into consideration in any decision 
regarding future funding for MSL.
    Outer planets.--NASA plans to conduct an outer planet 
flagship mission in cooperation with the European community, 
which a launch as soon as practicable. A more detailed plan and 
projected launch date shall be part of the fiscal year 2010 
budget. The bill includes $101,089,000 for the outer planets 
program, as requested.
    Hubble Space Telescope.--The bill provides the full 
requirement of $207,697,000 for the operations and upcoming 
servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope.
    Astrophysics exoplanet exploration, other missions and data 
analysis.--An increase of $20,000,000 is provided to continue 
NASA's efforts in assessing lower cost versions of the Space 
Interferometry Mission (SIM) and in completing the detailed 
formulation phase of a ``SIM-Lite'' mission that would meet the 
requirements laid out in the most recent decadal surveys for an 
astrophysics mission.
    Radiation Belt Storm Probes.--The bill provides the full 
budget request of $154,442,000 to continue this mission for 
launch in 2012.
    Solar Probe.--The bill includes $18,000,000 for the Solar 
Probe mission, the highest priority recommendation of the 
National Academies' heliophysics decadal report. NASA is 
directed to work to achieve a launch no later than 2015.
    Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission.--The bill includes the 
budget request of $94,582,000 for the Magnetospheric Multiscale 
Mission. NASA is directed to undertake no action to de-scope or 
reduce the project's scientific instruments or capacity.
    Wallops Flight Facility (WFF).--The WFF is an important 
national asset that can be better utilized by focusing on 
emerging technologies that meet national needs and NASA 
priorities. The bill therefore provides programmatic increases 
of: $5,000,000 for advanced technology development of small 
satellites and unmanned aerial systems (UAS) that have the 
potential of lowering the costs of space and Earth science 
missions consistent with the goals of venture class missions 
recommended by the National Academies' Earth science decadal 
report; and $14,000,000 to improve launch pad infrastructure. 
NASA is directed to prepare a five-year action plan, including 
a proposed funding forecast, that identifies specific program 
and advanced technology development work that will utilize and 
expand the Wallops Flight Facility's role in the development of 
small satellites and unmanned aerial systems to meet critical 
earth science and other space system needs. This plan is due to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by June 1, 
2009.
    Ocean vector wind study.--NASA, working with NOAA and 
within the funds provided, shall study satellite and non-
satellite alternatives for generating SeaWinds-like ocean wind 
data.

                              AERONAUTICS

    The bill provides $500,000,000 for aeronautics research. 
The research and development activities undertaken with the 
augmentation shall not be based on the determination that the 
investment in an activity would result in a useable or useful 
product based only on one year's funding. Accordingly, the 
Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate is directed to provide 
to the Committees on Appropriations of the House and Senate in 
NASA's initial fiscal year 2009 operating plan a proposed 
expenditure analysis of the congressional augmentation to 
ensure that this investment of funds is devoted to long-term, 
multi-year research and development activities to support 
NextGen technology needs and solutions and ``green'' aircraft.

                              EXPLORATION

    The bill provides $3,505,469,000 for exploration for fiscal 
year 2009, $5,000,000 over the budget request. The amount 
provided includes an unallocated adjustment of $18,000,000. 
NASA shall within 30 days of enactment of this Act provide to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations its proposed 
distribution of the unallocated adjustment. In doing so, NASA 
shall identify offsets that do not result in delays or 
cancellations of missions in development or the cancellation of 
any selected projects, and shall not identify as offsets any 
increases provided above the request expressly provided by 
Congress.
    Constellation systems.--The bill includes the budget 
request of $1,018,515,000 for Ares and $1,101,436,000 for 
Orion.
    Constellation systems program, heavy lift cargo vehicle.--
The bill includes $23,000,000 above the request for Ares V 
design requirements definition and research and development for 
a systems requirement review.
    International Space Station (ISS) research.--The bill 
provides $44,783,000 for ISS research and will support the 
study of life and physical sciences phenomenon in microgravity, 
as well as the partial gravity environments of the Moon and 
Mars.
    Commercial orbital transportation services (COTS).--For 
fiscal year 2009, the bill provides $153,045,000 for COTS 
program elements A through C, a reduction of $20,000,000 from 
the request. The reduction is taken without prejudice to the 
program, and is based on NASA's estimated expenditures for 
fiscal year 2009 while accounting for program management costs 
and anticipated payments to industry partners who successfully 
meet milestones in current Space Act agreements.
    Lunar precursor robotic program (LPRP) management.--The 
bill includes the budget request of $56,334,000 for the LPRP.

                            SPACE OPERATIONS

    The bill provides $5,764,710,000 for space operations for 
fiscal year 2009. The bill designates specific amounts for 
Space Shuttle operations, production, research, development and 
support; International Space Station operations, production, 
research, development and support; and Space Flight Support 
operations, production, research, development and support.
    Space Shuttle retirement and transition.--NASA, within 90 
days of enactment of this Act, shall submit a plan that seeks 
to maximize utilization of all facilities, as well as 
partnerships with other Federal agencies to maintain NASA's 
skilled workforce.
    Science experiments in microgravity.--To ensure immediate 
access of these types of experiments, NASA shall submit to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by March 2, 2009, 
a plan to ensure access of science experiments to a 
microgravity environment.
    Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer.--NASA is directed not to take 
any action to preclude delivery of the Alpha Magnetic 
Spectrometer (AMS) to the International Space Station prior to 
18 months preceding the anticipated retirement of the Space 
Shuttle in 2010. Should funds be necessary to preserve flight 
options in fiscal year 2009, NASA may reprogram funds pursuant 
to the authorities contained in section 505 of this Act.
    Launch services.--The bill provides $10,000,000 less than 
requested for launch services. Since the agency has yet to make 
a final determination of the allocation or phasing of the use 
of the requested increase, funding to mitigate the out-year 
costs of launch infrastructure and repairs has been deferred.

                               EDUCATION

    The bill provides $169,200,000 for education for fiscal 
year 2009.
    NASA Space Grants.--For this program, the bill provides a 
total of $40,000,000, which will fund 40 states or 
jurisdictions at $815,000 each and 12 states or jurisdictions 
at $615,000 each. Not more than $1,000,000 shall be retained 
for program administration.
    NASA visitor centers.--Funds provided for NASA visitor 
centers are to be distributed in equal increments to each 
center's visitor centers for the development of educational 
activities.

                          CROSS AGENCY SUPPORT

    The bill provides $3,306,387,000 for cross agency support 
for fiscal year 2009. Within the funds provided, not more than 
$2,033,000,000 shall be available for center management and 
operations, of which $2,024,000,000 is provided as direct 
appropriations and not more than $9,000,000 is to be derived 
from enhanced use lease receipts pursuant to 42 USC 2549j. In 
addition, the bill provides not more than $70,000 shall be 
available for official reception and representation expenses. 
For independent verification and validation (IVV) activities, 
the bill provides not less than $45,000,000, of which 
$5,000,000 shall be available for the development of IVV tools 
in the small business community. Funds provided herein for the 
IVV facility and its activities shall be in addition to funds 
allocated by the Office of Safety and Mission Assurance for the 
safety assurance research program.
    Congressionally-directed projects.--The bill includes a 
provision that provides that $67,500,000 of the amounts 
provided under this heading shall be available for the 
projects, and in the amounts, specified in the table below. 
NASA shall refrain from charging administrative costs to these 
grants, and shall provide appropriate management and oversight 
of each grant.

[GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

    Institutional investments.--A total of $293,665,000 is 
provided for institutional investments, of which $218,901,000 
shall be available for institutional construction of facilities 
(ICF). Within the funds provided for ICF, not more than 
$13,700,000 shall be available for facility planning and 
design. In addition, the amounts requested for minor 
revitalization of facilities at various locations (less than 
$500,000) are reduced by $4,850,000 to fully resource the 
repair and construction of the consolidated information 
technology center Dryden Flight Research Center (DFRC). This 
transfer reflects NASA's planned execution of repair and 
construction at DFRC in fiscal year 2009. Lastly, the amount 
requested for programmatic discrete projects is reduced by 
$5,000,000. NASA shall in its initial operating plan delineate 
by project its proposed allocation of the resources provided 
herein.
    Mississippi Army Ammunition Plant (MSAAP) and Stennis Space 
Center (SSC).--NASA shall provide to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations by March 2, 2009, a report that 
outlines estimated costs related to the transfer of MSAAP to 
NASA's SSC.
    Leasing authority and collections.--In 2003, NASA was 
authorized by Congress to demonstrate leasing authority and 
collections at two Centers. In 2007 and again in 2008, that 
authority was amended by Congress such that NASA may enter into 
leasing arrangements at all Centers after December 2008. After 
deducting the costs of administering the leases, Centers are 
then permitted to retain 65 percent of net receipt revenue, and 
the balance is made available agency-wide for NASA. To date, 
NASA estimates that in fiscal years 2008 and 2009, gross 
receipts and collections will total in excess of $24,300,000, 
and are anticipated to grow in the future. These funds are in 
addition to annual appropriations.
    In March 2007, the Government Accountability Office noted 
that NASA should develop an agency-wide policy to ensure 
accountability, protect the Government, and provide 
transparency regarding NASA's leasing authority and collections 
activities. Later, in December 2007, a report by the Surveys 
and Investigations staff of the House Appropriations Committee 
found NASA's reports to the Congress on its implementation of 
its leasing activities to be inaccurate, incomplete and 
uninformative. To date, evidence suggests that such 
deficiencies continue as information provided to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations on existing leasing 
collections and expenditures remains incomplete and, provides 
no transparency in delineating the costs of administering such 
leases, and no justification supporting the activities 
undertaken with the expenditure of the Centers' gross or net 
receipts.
    NASA must improve its management of the program, its 
oversight of its centers' use of leasing receipts and its 
accounting of the relationship between annual leasing receipts 
and appropriated funds. To ensure annual oversight and review, 
to improve overall program management and to protect the 
Government, the bill contains a provision that provides that 
the expenditure of gross receipts and collections in fiscal 
year 2009 shall be subject to a limitation of $9,000,000, and 
requires NASA to submit a separate accounting of leasing 
collections and proposed expenditures in its annual budget 
justification submission to the Congress. Collections in excess 
of $9,000,000 (to also include any unexpended balances of prior 
year collections) shall remain available for expenditure in 
subsequent fiscal years. NASA is directed, not later than 90 
days after enactment of this Act, to report to the House and 
Senate Committees on actions taken by headquarters management 
to better account for leasing receipts and collections and 
expenditures of gross receipts at each Center and to identify 
any activities previously budgeted from appropriated funds that 
are now planned to be financed with leasing receipts. NASA is 
further directed to submit a separate operating plan by Center 
on the proposed use of all receipts and collections in fiscal 
year 2009 prior to the expenditure of such funds, and any 
deviation from such approved plan shall be subject to section 
505 of this Act. Further, NASA shall submit with its annual 
budget submission a separate accounting by Center of gross 
receipts and collections and proposed use of all funds 
collected under its leasing authority. Such material shall 
include a detailed presentation of all proposed expenditures, 
to include but not limited to full-time equivalent (FTE) staff 
years and object class data, and justification for such 
proposed expenditures by project or activity.
    Conference expenses.--Section 1121(a) of the NASA 
Authorization Act of 2008 (P.L. 110-422) provides NASA with the 
discretion to define ``conference'' for the purposes of that 
subparagraph. In view of the requirement of the National 
Aeronautics and Space Act (P.L. 85-568), as amended, that NASA 
provide for the widest practicable and appropriate 
dissemination of information concerning its activities and the 
results thereof, in no event shall the funds appropriated by 
this Act be subject to the limitation of section 1121(a) of 
P.L. 110-422 with respect to NASA expenditures for scientific 
and technical conferences or education-related conferences in 
which NASA science, technology, engineering and mathematics 
(STEM) content is disseminated.

                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

    The bill provides $33,600,000 for the Office of the 
Inspector General. In fiscal year 2009, NASA and its IG shall 
follow the direction included in Public Law 110-161 as it 
relates to the reporting of the costs of conferences. NASA and 
the IG are to provide a report annually on these activities to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations not later 
than October 1 of each year.

                       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS

    The bill contains a provision that provides for the no-year 
availability of funds made available for construction of 
facilities or environmental compliance and restoration 
activities within the Science, Aeronautics, Exploration, Space 
Operations and Cross Agency Support appropriations, except that 
such provision shall not apply to amounts appropriated for 
institutional minor revitalization and minor construction of 
facilities, and institutional planning and design.
    The bill contains language regarding the availability of 
funds for announced prizes.
    The bill includes language that requires NASA to submit to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by March 2, 
2009 a report by fiscal year, object class and mission 
directorate costs expended to date and required for Space 
Shuttle retirement and transition activities for fiscal years 
2006 through 2015.
    The bill includes language extending the availability of 
expiring but not canceled funds through 2015 for close-out of 
Space Shuttle contracts and associated programs.
    The bill includes a provision that provides that any 
funding designations and minimum funding requirements in any 
other Act shall not be applicable to funds appropriated by this 
title for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

                      National Science Foundation


                    RESEARCH AND RELATED ACTIVITIES

    The bill includes $5,183,100,000 for fiscal year 2009 for 
research and related activities. When determining the 
allocation of resources, the NSF shall provide for a balanced

cyber infrastructure needs. Funds provided under this heading 
are not provided for adaptive systems technology.
    Public awareness.--NSF is encouraged to maximize 
communication and open exchange of data and results that flow 
from research that is funded by NSF appropriations, consistent 
with existing Federal law. NSF is expected to partner with 
grantees to expand the visibility to the public of NSF-
sponsored research, especially through the Internet. NSF is the 
principal Federal agency charged with promoting science and 
engineering education, and increasing the public awareness of 
NSF's high-risk, high-reward research activities will 
contribute to the development of the future of science and 
technology workforce.
    Icebreaking.--Consistent with the direction to the U.S. 
Coast Guard contained in explanatory statement accompanying 
Public Law 110-329, NSF and the U.S. Coast Guard shall 
renegotiate the existing agreement between the two agencies so 
that operations and maintenance funding of the icebreakers is 
requested in the Coast Guard's annual budget beginning in 
fiscal year 2010. The NSF shall retain funding for the science-
only related costs of icebreaking services to be procured from 
all entities (governmental and non-governmental). Funding to 
continue the caretaker status of the Polar Star is not 
contained within this appropriation, but rather within the 
funds appropriated to the Coast Guard by Public Law 110-329.
    Experimental Program to Stimulate Cooperative Research 
(EPSCoR).--Within the amounts provided, the bill designates 
$133,000,000 for EPSCoR, of which at least $70,000,000 shall be 
used for track 1 research infrastructure improvement (RII) 
awards. The increase in the size of the track 1 awards as 
provided in the most recent EPSCoR solicitation shall continue. 
The fiscal year 2009 operating plan shall reflect the direction 
herein and indicate the anticipated allocation of funds among 
other activities (e.g., track II RII, co-funding, SBIR, 
outreach, etc.).
    NSF is directed to provide not less than $660,000,000 for 
NSF investments/activities in the EPSCoR jurisdictions in 
fiscal year 2009. Annual increases in NSF investments should be 
proportional to the annual growth in overall research and 
related activities appropriation.

    Robert Noyce Scholarship program.--Increasing the number of 
highly qualified K-12 math and science teachers is critical to 
the creation of a new generation of innovators. The Robert 
Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program, including NSF Teaching 
Fellowships and Master Teaching Fellowships, recruits and 
supports talented mathematics and science undergraduate 
students and postgraduate professionals to become K-12 
mathematics and science teachers with scholarships, stipends 
and other support. The increase provided in the bill for the 
Noyce Program is for the purpose of expanding participation in 
the grant programs established in section 10 and section 10A of 
the National Science Foundation Authorization Act of 2002 (42 
U.S.C. 1862n-1) as amended by the America COMPETES Act.
    Undergraduate/graduate student support programs.--A total 
of $87,500,000 is provided for undergraduate/graduate student 
support programs for fiscal year 2009. Funding of $42,500,000 
is provided for the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority 
Participation (LSAMP); $31,500,000 is provided for the 
Historically Black Colleges and Universities Undergraduate 
Program (HBCU-UP) and $13,500,000 is provided for the Tribal 
Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP).
    Climate change education program.--The National Science 
Foundation shall consult with the National Academies in the 
development of a plan for the distribution of funds provided 
herein for the climate change education program.

                 AGENCY OPERATIONS AND AWARD MANAGEMENT

    The bill provides $294,000,000 for agency operations and 
award management for fiscal year 2009.
    NSF is directed to notify the House and Senate Committees 
on Appropriations 90 days prior to changing its existing cost 
sharing policies, and to include in such policy directive 
measures to mitigate effects on grantees, particularly on 
minority-serving institutions.

                  OFFICE OF THE NATIONAL SCIENCE BOARD

    The bill includes $4,030,000 for the Office of the National 
Science Board.

                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

    The bill provides $12,000,000 for the Office of Inspector 
General. Funds are available for one year.

                       TITLE IV--RELATED AGENCIES


                       Commission on Civil Rights


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $8,800,000 for the salaries and expenses 
of the Commission on Civil Rights. Within 60 days of enactment 
of this Act, the Commission is directed to report to the House 
and Senate Committees on Appropriations on the fiscal year 2009 
budget and activities of the regional offices and the State 
Advisory Committees, as well as on the procedures employed to 
ensure transparency and the participation of all Commissioners 
in the preparation and review of all reports and briefing 
papers.

                Equal Employment Opportunity Commission


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $343,925,000 for the Equal Employment 
Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which is $2,000,000 above the 
budget request.
    Backlog reduction.--EEOC's rising charge backlog is a 
significant concern, but it does not appear that this issue is 
being addressed by EEOC in a systematic or strategic manner. 
Consequently, the EEOC is provided an increase of $6,545,000 to 
begin addressing this problem. EEOC is directed to report to 
the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 60 
days of the enactment of this Act with a comprehensive plan for 
backlog reduction, including future resource requirements and 
hiring needs. The hiring needs section of the plan should also 
address EEOC's large number of unfilled existing frontline 
staff positions. The report should specify what steps EEOC is 
taking to fill those positions, the reasons for the delay in 
filling them and how these delays can be prevented in the 
future.
    Accuracy of workload projections.--The assumptions 
underlying EEOC's future workload projections appear overly 
optimistic or otherwise inaccurate. The EEOC is urged to 
further refine its projections by calibrating them with actual 
data, such as those available through the annual midyear 
review.
    Customer service transition.--The fiscal year 2009 funding 
level includes $3,635,000 to complete the transition of EEOC's 
customer service operation to an in-house function. To ensure 
that callers being handled by the new in-house operation are 
receiving service that is equal to or better than the service 
that was received through the prior system, EEOC is directed to 
report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations on 
comparative customer satisfaction data no later than 60 days 
after the enactment of this Act. The report should also include 
a cost-benefit analysis of hiring higher credentialed employees 
for the call intake function.
    State, local and tribal assistance.--EEOC is directed to 
submit the findings of its ongoing review of State, local and 
tribal per charge costs to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations when that data becomes available.
    Workforce planning.--A recent GAO study found that EEOC did 
not strategically or systematically approach mission needs, 
customer expectations, workload or current workforce needs in 
its draft Strategic Workforce Plan. The study concluded that 
EEOC could better address its growing caseload if it made 
better use of strategic planning. EEOC is directed to implement 
the recommendations of GAO and to report back to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations within 60 days of the 
enactment of this Act on how those recommendations were 
implemented.

                     International Trade Commission


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill includes $75,100,000 for the International Trade 
Commission (ITC), which is $1,500,000 above the budget request. 
The ITC's increasing section 337 intellectual property 
investigations workload is outstripping available resources, 
and the additional funding will allow ITC to hire a sixth 
administrative law judge, lease additional courtroom space, and 
cover necessary renovation costs.

                       Legal Services Corporation


               PAYMENT TO THE LEGAL SERVICES CORPORATION

    The bill provides $390,000,000 for the Legal Services 
Corporation (LSC). Within the total provided, $365,800,000 is 
for grants to basic field programs and required independent 
audits; $4,200,000 is for the Office of Inspector General; 
$16,000,000 is for management and administration; $3,000,000 is 
for client self-help and information technology; and $1,000,000 
is for loan repayment assistance. Current LSC locality pay 
represents reasonable compensation for LSC officers and 
employees, and a provision is included to authorize the 
continuation of locality pay.
    Home foreclosure prevention.--LSC shall encourage its 
grantees in areas experiencing high foreclosure rates to use 
available funds to provide and expand legal assistance related 
to home ownership preservation, home foreclosure prevention and 
tenancy protection associated with home foreclosure.

          ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISION--LEGAL SERVICES CORPORATION

    The bill includes language to continue the statutory 
requirements and restrictions contained in previous 
appropriations Acts.

                        Marine Mammal Commission


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill includes $3,200,000 for the Marine Mammal 
Commission. The increase above the request shall be for the 
hiring of two additional FTEs to monitor oil and gas issues 
such as the expansion of exploration and the clean-up of oil 
spills on ice, as well as emerging fishery issues.

           National Veterans Business Development Corporation

    No funds are provided for the National Veterans Business 
Development Corporation. Division D contains appropriations for 
the Small Business Administration's veterans programs that are 
available to support the work of small business veterans 
centers.

            Office of the United States Trade Representative


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill includes $47,272,000 for the Office of the United 
States Trade Representative (USTR), which is $1,000,000 above 
the request. Additional funding is provided for USTR's pay and 
inflation-related increases, and to support current staffing 
levels.
    Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).--Significant 
intellectual property issues infringe on our trading 
relationships with China, Russia and Canada. USTR is encouraged 
to continue to prioritize such issues in bilateral and 
multilateral trade negotiations, and in particular, to provide 
a report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
on Russia's progress in complying with intellectual property 
commitments.
    Textiles.--The current path of tariff reduction 
negotiations under the Doha Round may result in a non-
reciprocal arrangement detrimental to United States 
manufacturers. Such negotiations should be consistent with the 
trade negotiating objectives of the United States contained in 
section 2012 of the Bipartisan Trade Promotion Authority Act of 
2002 (19 U.S.C. 3802). The USTR is directed to report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 60 days of 
enactment of this Act regarding adherence to these objectives.
    Reporting requirements.--The USTR may fare better in 
bringing trade dispute cases to the WTO by using additional 
support from private counsel. In-house expertise in long-term, 
complex WTO dispute cases is difficult to maintain in an ever-
changing international trade climate. Outside counsel in 
countries such as China, Russia and Brazil could assist with 
clarification of local laws and regulations, enforcement 
policies and practices, and market conditions. USTR is directed 
to report back to the House and Senate Appropriations 
Committees on the desirability of a new such authority.
    Galileo program.--The USTR is directed to report on the 
status of U.S. equipment industry access to the European 
Community's (EC) Galileo program and European markets for 
related goods and services, no later than April 1, 2009, in 
order to assess EC compliance with the 2004 US-EU Agreement on 
GPS-Galileo Cooperation.
    World Trade Organization.--The Department of Commerce is 
directed, in consultation with the USTR, to continue to 
negotiate within the WTO to seek express recognition of the 
existing right of WTO Members to distribute monies collected 
from antidumping and countervailing duties. The agency shall 
consult with and provide regular reports, every 60 days, to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations. In addition, 
negotiations shall be conducted within the WTO consistent with 
the negotiating objectives contained in the Trade Act of 2002, 
Public Law 107-210, to maintain strong U.S. trade remedies 
laws, prevent overreaching by WTO Panels and the WTO Appellate 
Body, and prevent the creation of obligations never negotiated 
or agreed to by the United States.

                        State Justice Institute


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The bill provides $4,100,000 for the State Justice 
Institute (SJI), of which $250,000 shall remain available until 
September 30, 2010. Within funds appropriated, $500,000 may be 
used for strategic initiatives that will have national 
implications for the courts. SJI is directed to continue its 
policy of obtaining dollar-for-dollar matching funds for grants 
awarded during fiscal year 2009. The SJI is encouraged to 
continue to work with the Department of Justice Office of 
Justice Programs on issues involving State courts.

issued pursuant to existing law.
    Section 504 provides that if any provision of the Act or

notified 15 days in advance; or (9) results from any general 
savings, including savings from a reduction in personnel, which 
would result in a change in existing programs, activities, or 
projects as approved by Congress, unless the Appropriations

advance. No reprogrammings of funds are permitted after August 
1, except in extraordinary circumstances, and only after the

similar to proposed guidelines published by the EEOC in October 
1993.
    Section 507 provides that if it is determined that any

within 24 hours.
    Section 512 delays the obligations of any receipts 
deposited into the Crime Victims Fund in excess of $635,000,000 
until October 1, 2009. This language is continued to ensure a 
stable source of funds will remain available for the program, 
despite inconsistent levels of criminal fines deposited 
annually into the fund.
    Section 513 prohibits the use of Department of Justice 
funds for programs that discriminate against or denigrate the
