             Note From the Director, Legislative Operations

    This committee print consists of the enrolled text and 
explanatory material for the Carl Levin and Howard P. ``Buck'' 
McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 
(H.R. 3979; Public Law 113-291).
    This Act and the material found in this committee print are 
the product of an agreement between the Chairman and Ranking 
Member of the House Committee on Armed Services and the 
Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Armed 
Services on H.R. 4435, as passed by the House of 
Representatives on May 22, 2014, and S. 2410, as reported out 
of committee on May 22, 2014. The Senate did not bring S. 2410 
to the Senate Floor for further consideration, and therefore 
was unable to initiate a formal conference with the House.
    In order to ensure the enactment of an annual National 
Defense Authorization Act by the end of the calendar year, the 
Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Committee on Armed 
Services and the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate 
Committee on Armed Services agreed to reconcile the provisions 
of H.R. 4435 and S. 2410, including a number of proposed 
amendments submitted for consideration had the Senate gone to 
the Floor with its bill and were cleared by both sides. The 
negotiated agreement was brought to the House Floor in the form 
of an amendment to the Senate amendment to H.R. 3979. On 
December 4, 2014, pursuant to H. Res. 770, the House considered 
a motion to concur in the Senate amendment to H.R. 3979 with an 
amendment, which contained the agreed upon legislative text 
between the House and the Senate. On December 4, 2014, the 
House agreed to the amendment to the Senate amendment by a vote 
of 300-119 (Roll no. 551). On December 12, 2014, the Senate 
agreed to the House amendment to the Senate amendment to H.R. 
3979 by a vote of 89-11 (Record Vote Number: 325). The 
President signed the legislation on December 19, 2014, and it 
became Public Law 113-291.
    Because the House and Senate negotiators were unable to 
convene a formal conference committee to resolve the 
differences in the respective versions of the bill, there is no 
conference report and no formal ``joint explanatory statement 
of the conference committee'' for H.R. 3979. Instead, Chairman 
Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon and Chairman Carl Levin submitted a 
``Joint Explanatory Statement to Accompany the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015'' in the Congressional 
Record on December 4, 2014 (pages H8671-H8819). The text of the 
joint explanatory statement is included in this committee 
print. Section 5 of H.R. 3979 specifies that this explanatory 
material shall have the same effect with respect to the 
implementation of this legislation as if it were a joint 
explanatory statement of a committee of conference.
    In this committee print, the provisions of H.R. 4435, the 
House-passed version of the National Defense Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2015, are generally referred to as ``the House 
bill.'' The provisions of S. 2410, the Senate Committee on 
Armed Services committee-reported version of the National 
Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015, are generally 
referred to as ``the Senate committee-reported bill.'' Senate 
amendments included in the agreements are identified by Senate 
amendment numbers. The final form of the agreements reached 
during negotiations between the House and the Senate are 
referred to as ``the agreement.''
    The following pages are organized in the manner of a 
traditional conference report.

CARL LEVIN AND HOWARD P. ``BUCK'' McKEON NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION 
                        ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2015

                            LEGISLATIVE TEXT

    [Note from the Director, Legislative Operations: The 
following is the enrolled legislative text of H.R. 3979, the 
Carl Levin and Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015, as passed by the House 
of Representatives and the Senate]
  Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of 
the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

  (a) Short Title.--This Act may be cited as the ``Carl Levin 
and Howard P. `Buck' McKeon National Defense Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2015''.
  (b) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
          (1)(A) Senator Carl Levin of Michigan was elected a 
        member of the United States Senate on November 7, 1978, 
        for a full term beginning January 3, 1979. He has 
        served continuously in the Senate since that date, and 
        was appointed as a member of the Committee on Armed 
        Services in January 1979. He has served on the 
        Committee on Armed Services since that date, a period 
        of nearly 36 years.
          (B) A graduate of Detroit Central High School, 
        Senator Levin went on to Swarthmore College, and 
        graduated from Harvard Law School in 1959, gaining 
        admittance to the Michigan bar. He served his State as 
        assistant attorney general and general counsel of the 
        Michigan Civil Rights Commission from 1964-1967, and 
        later served his hometown of Detroit as a member of the 
        Detroit City Council from 1969-1973, and as the 
        council's president from 1974-1977.
          (C) Senator Levin first served as chairman of the 
        Committee on Armed Services of the United States Senate 
        for a period of the 107th Congress, and has remained 
        chairman since the 110th Congress began in 2007. He has 
        exercised extraordinary leadership as either the 
        chairman or ranking minority member of the committee 
        since the start of the 105th Congress in 1997.
          (D) Each year, for the past 52 years, the Committee 
        on Armed Services has reliably passed an annual defense 
        authorization act, and this will be the 36th that 
        Senator Levin has had a role in. In his capacity as 
        member, ranking member, and chairman, he has been an 
        advocate for a strong national defense, and has made 
        lasting contributions to the security of our Nation.
          (E) It is altogether fitting and proper that this 
        Act, the last annual authorization act for the national 
        defense that Senator Levin manages in and for the 
        United States Senate as chairman of the Committee on 
        Armed Services, be named in his honor, as provided in 
        subsection (a).
          (2)(A) Representative Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon was 
        elected to the House of Representatives in 1992 to 
        represent California's 25th Congressional District.
          (B) Chairman McKeon was born in Los Angeles and grew 
        up in Tujunga CA. He served a two and a half year 
        mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day 
        Saints and attended Brigham Young University. Prior to 
        his election to Congress, he was a small business 
        owner, and served both on the William S. Hart Union 
        High School District Board of Trustees and as the first 
        mayor of the City of Santa Clarita.
          (C) In the 111th Congress, Chairman McKeon was 
        selected by his peers as the Ranking Member of the 
        House Armed Services Committee and has served as 
        Chairman since in the 112th and 113th Congresses. 
        Previously Chairman McKeon had served as the Chairman 
        of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
          (D) Chairman McKeon is a champion of a strong 
        national defense, the men and women of America's Armed 
        Forces and their families, and returning fiscal 
        discipline to the Department of Defense. His priority 
        has been to ensure our troops deployed around the world 
        have the equipment, resources, authorities, training 
        and time they need to successfully complete their 
        missions and return home.
          (E) For 52 consecutive years, the House Armed 
        Services Committee, in a bipartisan, bicameral 
        tradition, has passed and enacted an annual defense 
        authorization act. Chairman McKeon had said it has been 
        the privilege of his life to shepherd that tradition 
        under his tenure.
          (F) It is therefore fitting this Act, the last 
        national defense authorization act of his tenure, be 
        named in Chairman McKeon's honor, as provided in

SEC. 143. REPORT ON STATUS OF AIR-LAUNCHED CRUISE MISSILE CAPABILITIES.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) The capability provided by the nuclear-capable, 
        air-launched cruise missile is critical to maintaining 
        a credible and effective air-delivery leg of the 
        nuclear triad, preserving the ability to respond to 
        geopolitical and technical surprise, and reassuring 
        allies of the United States through credible extended 
        deterrence.
          (2) In the fiscal year 2015 budget request of the Air 
        Force, the Secretary of the Air Force delayed 
        development of the long-range standoff weapon, the 
        follow-on for the air-launched cruise missile, by three 
        years.
          (3) The Secretary plans to sustain the current air-
        launched cruise missile, known as the AGM-86, until 
        approximately 2030, with multiple service life-
        extension programs required to preserve but not enhance 
        the existing capabilities of the air-launched cruise 
        missile.
          (4) The AGM-86 was initially developed in the 1970s 
        and deployed in the 1980s.
          (5) The average age of the inventory of air-launched 
        cruise missiles is more than 30 years old.
          (6) The operating environment, particularly the 
        sophistication of integrated air defenses, has evolved 
        substantially since the inception of the air-launched 
        cruise missile.
          (7) The AGM-86 is no longer in production and the 
        inventory of spare bodies for required annual testing 
        continues to diminish, posing serious challenges for 
        long-term sustainment.
  (b) Report.--
          (1) In general.--Not later than 120 days after the 
        date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of the 
        Air Force, in coordination with the Commander of the 
        United States Strategic Command, shall submit to the 
        congressional defense committees a report on the status 
        of the current air-launched cruise missile and the

        standoff weapon, in accordance with section 217 of the 
        National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014 
        (Public Law 113-66; 127 Stat. 706).

                survivability of the air-launched cruise 
                missile through 2030, including the impact of 
                any degradation on the ability of the United 
                States Strategic Command to meet deterrence 
                requirements, including the number of targets 
                held at risk by the air-launched cruise missile 
                or the burdens placed on other legs of the 
                nuclear triad.
                  (B) A description of age-related failure 
                trends, an assessment of potential age-related 
                fleet-wide reliability and supportability 
                problems, and the estimated costs for 
                sustaining the air-launched cruise missile.
                  (C) A detailed plan, including initial cost 
                estimates, for the development and deployment 
                of the follow-on system that will achieve 
                initial operational capability before 2030.
                  (D) An assessment of the feasibility and 
                advisability of alternative development 
                strategies, including initial cost estimates, 
                that would achieve full operational capability 
                before 2030.
                  (E) An assessment of current testing 
                requirements and the availability of test 
                bodies to sustain the air-launched cruise 
                missile over the long term.
                  (F) A description of the extent to which the 
                airframe and other related components can be 
                completed independent of the payload, as 
                determined by the Nuclear Weapons Council 
                established by section 179 of title 10, United 
                States Code.
                  (G) A statement of the risks assumed by not 
                fielding an operational replacement for the 
                existing air-launched cruise missile by 2030.
          (3) Form.--The report required under paragraph (1) 
        shall be submitted in classified form, but may include 
        an unclassified summary.

          (3) The feasibility of generating net revenue from 
        pricing and stock assortment changes.
          (4) The relationship of higher prices and reduced 
        patron savings to patron usage and accompanying sales, 
        both on a national and regional basis.
          (5) The impact of changes to the operation of the 
        defense commissary system on industry support; such as 
        vendor stocking, promotions, discounts, and 
        merchandising activities and programs.
          (6) The ability of the current commissary management 
        and information technology systems to accommodate 
        changes to the existing pricing and management 
        structure.

        changes that would be required in connection with 
        changes to the defense commissary system.

        recommended changes to the current pricing and 
        management model of the defense commissary system.

  ``(i) Defense Acquisitions Specifically Authorized by Law.--
(1) In the case of the Department of Defense, a multiyear 
contract in an amount equal to or greater than $500,000,000 may 
not be entered into under this section unless the contract is 
specifically authorized by law in an Act other than an 
appropriations Act.
  ``(2) In submitting a request for a specific authorization by 
law to carry out a defense acquisition program using multiyear 
contract authority under this section, the Secretary of Defense 
shall include in the request the following:
          ``(A) A report containing preliminary findings of the 
        agency head required in paragraphs (1) through (6) of 
        subsection (a), together with the basis for such 
        findings.
          ``(B) Confirmation that the preliminary findings of 
        the agency head under subparagraph (A) were made after 
        the completion of a cost analysis performed by the 
        Director of Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation for 
        the purpose of section 2334(e)(1) of this title, and 
        that the analysis supports those preliminary findings.
  ``(3) A multiyear contract may not be entered into under this 
section for a defense acquisition program that has been 
specifically authorized by law to be carried out using 
multiyear contract authority unless the Secretary of Defense 
certifies in writing, not later than 30 days before entry into 
the contract, that each of the following conditions is 
satisfied:
          ``(A) The Secretary has determined that each of the 
        requirements in paragraphs (1) through (6) of 
        subsection (a) will be met by such contract and has 
        provided the basis for such determination to the 
        congressional defense committees.
          ``(B) The Secretary's determination under 
        subparagraph (A) was made after completion of a cost 
        analysis conducted on the basis of section 2334(e)(2) 
        of this title, and the analysis supports the 
        determination.
          ``(C) The system being acquired pursuant to such 
        contract has not been determined to have experienced 
        cost growth in excess of the critical cost growth 
        threshold pursuant to section 2433(d) of this title 
        within 5 years prior to the date the Secretary 
        anticipates such contract (or a contract for advance 
        procurement entered into consistent with the 
        authorization for such contract) will be awarded.
          ``(D) A sufficient number of end items of the system 
        being acquired under such contract have been delivered 
        at or within the most current estimates of the program 
        acquisition unit cost or procurement unit cost for such 
        system to determine that current estimates of such unit 
        costs are realistic.
          ``(E) During the fiscal year in which such contract 
        is to be awarded, sufficient funds will be available to 
        perform the contract in such fiscal year, and the 
        future-years defense program for such fiscal year will 
        include the funding required to execute the program 
        without cancellation.
          ``(F) The contract is a fixed price type contract.
          ``(G) The proposed multiyear contract provides for 
        production at not less than minimum economic rates 
        given the existing tooling and facilities.
  ``(4) If for any fiscal year a multiyear contract to be 
entered into under this section is authorized by law for a 
particular procurement program and that authorization is 
subject to certain conditions established by law (including a 
condition as to cost savings to be achieved under the multiyear 
contract in comparison to specified other contracts) and if it 
appears (after negotiations with contractors) that such savings 
cannot be achieved, but that substantial savings could 
nevertheless be achieved through the use of a multiyear 
contract rather than specified other contracts, the President 
may submit to Congress a request for relief from the specified 
cost savings that must be achieved through multiyear 
contracting for that program. Any such request by the President 
shall include details about the request for a multiyear 
contract, including details about the negotiated contract terms 
and conditions.
  ``(5)(A) The Secretary may obligate funds for procurement of 
an end item under a multiyear contract for the purchase of 
property only for procurement of a complete and usable end 
item.
  ``(B) The Secretary may obligate funds appropriated for any 
fiscal year for advance procurement under a contract for the 
purchase of property only for the procurement of those long-
lead items necessary in order to meet a planned delivery 
schedule for complete major end items that are programmed under 
the contract to be acquired with funds appropriated for a 
subsequent fiscal year (including an economic order quantity of 
such long-lead items when authorized by law).
  ``(6) The Secretary may make the certification under 
paragraph (3) notwithstanding the fact that one or more of the 
conditions of such certification are not met, if the Secretary 
determines that, due to exceptional circumstances, proceeding 
with a multiyear contract under this section is in the best 
interest of the Department of Defense and the Secretary 
provides the basis for such determination with the 
certification.
  ``(7) The Secretary may not delegate the authority to make 
the certification under paragraph (3) or the determination 
under paragraph (6) to an official below the level of Under 
Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and 
Logistics.''.
  (b) Conforming Amendment.--Subsection (a)(7) of such section

by law to carry out defense acquisition programs using 
multiyear contract authority that are made on or after that 
date.

        agencies directly or indirectly to a covered person or 
        entity. The program shall be designed to facilitate and

SEC. 1015. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING SECURITY IN THE WESTERN 
                    HEMISPHERE.

  (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
          (1) The stability and security of the Western 
        Hemisphere has a direct impact on the security 
        interests of the United States.
          (2) Over the past decade, there has been a marked 
        increase in violence and instability in the region as a 
        result of weak governance and increasingly capable 
        transnational criminal organizations. These criminal 
        organizations operate global, multi-billion dollar 
        networks that traffic narcotics, humans, weapons, and 
        bulk cash.
          (3) Conflict between the various transnational 
        criminal organizations for smuggling routes and 
        territory has resulted in skyrocketing violence. 
        According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and 
        Crime, Honduras has the highest murder rate in the 
        world with 90 murders per 100,000 people.
          (4) United States Northern Command and United States 
        Southern Command are the lead combatant commands for 
        Department of Defense efforts to combat illicit 
        trafficking in the Western Hemisphere.
          (5) To combat these destabilizing threats, through a 
        variety of authorities, the Department of Defense 
        advises, trains, educates, and equips vetted troops in 
        the region to enhance their military and police forces, 
        with an emphasis on human rights and the rule of law.
          (6) As a result of decades of instability and 
        violence, tens of thousands of unaccompanied alien 
        children and their families have fled to the border 
        between the United States and Mexico. In fiscal year 
        2014, approximately 66,000 such children were 
        apprehended crossing into the United States from 
        Mexico.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
          (1) the Department of Defense should continue its 
        efforts to combat transnational criminal organizations 
        in the Western Hemisphere;
          (2) the Department of Defense should increase its 
        maritime, aerial and intelligence, surveillance, and 
        reconnaissance capabilities in the region to more 
        effectively support efforts to reduce illicit 
        trafficking into the United States; and
          (3) enhancing the capacity of partner nations in the 
        region to combat the threat posed by transnational 
        criminal organizations should be a cornerstone of the 
        Department of Defense's strategy in the region.

  Section 231(f) of title 10, United States Code, is amended by 
adding at the end the following new paragraph:
          ``(4) The term `combatant and support vessel' means 
        any commissioned ship built or armed for naval combat 
        or any naval ship designed to provide support to 
        combatant ships and other naval operations. Such term 
        does not include patrol coastal ships, non-commissioned 
        combatant craft specifically designed for combat roles, 
        or ships that are designated for potential 
        mobilization.''.

        intercontinental ballistic missiles.''.
          (2) Clerical amendment.--The table of sections at the 
        beginning of chapter 131 of such title is amended by 
        inserting after the item relating to section 2218 the 
        following new item:

``2218a. National Sea-Based Deterrence Fund.''.

  (b) Transfer Authority.--
          (1) In general.--Subject to paragraph (2), and to the 
        extent provided in appropriations Acts, the Secretary 
        of Defense may transfer to the National Sea-Based

        10, United States Code, as added by subsection (a)(1), 
        amounts not to exceed $3,500,000,000 from unobligated 
        funds authorized to be appropriated for fiscal years 
        2014, 2015, or 2016 for the Navy for the Ohio 
        Replacement Program. The transfer authority provided 
        under this paragraph is in addition to any other

SEC. 1023. LIMITATION ON USE OF FUNDS FOR INACTIVATION OF U.S.S. GEORGE 
                    WASHINGTON.

  No funds authorized to be appropriated by this Act or 
otherwise made available for fiscal year 2015 for the Navy may 
be obligated or expended to conduct tasks connected to the

SEC. 1024. SENSE OF CONGRESS RECOGNIZING THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE SINKING 
                    OF U.S.S. THRESHER.

  (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
          (1) U.S.S. Thresher was first launched at Portsmouth 
        Naval Shipyard on July 9, 1960.
          (2) U.S.S. Thresher departed Portsmouth Naval 
        Shipyard for her final voyage on April 9, 1963, with a 
        crew of 16 officers, 96 sailors, and 17 civilians.
          (3) The mix of that crew reflects the unity of the 
        naval submarine service, military and civilian, in the 
        protection of the United States.
          (4) At approximately 7:47 a.m. on April 10, 1963, 
        while in communication with the surface ship U.S.S. 
        Skylark, and approximately 220 miles off the coast of 
        New England, U.S.S. Thresher began her final descent.
          (5) U.S.S. Thresher was declared lost with all hands 
        on April 10, 1963.
          (6) In response to the loss of U.S.S. Thresher, the 
        United States Navy instituted new regulations to ensure 
        the health of the submariners and the safety of the 
        submarines of the United States.
          (7) Those regulations led to the establishment of the 
        Submarine Safety and Quality Assurance program 
        (SUBSAFE), now one of the most comprehensive military 
        safety programs in the world.
          (8) SUBSAFE has kept the submariners of the United 
        States safe at sea ever since as the strongest, safest 
        submarine force in history.
          (9) Since the establishment of SUBSAFE, no SUBSAFE-
        certified submarine has been lost at sea, which is a 
        legacy owed to the brave individuals who perished 
        aboard U.S.S. Thresher.
          (10) From the loss of U.S.S. Thresher, there arose in 
        the institutions of higher education in the United 
        States the ocean engineering curricula that enables the 
        preeminence of the United States in submarine warfare.
          (11) The crew of U.S.S. Thresher demonstrated the 
        ``last full measure of devotion'' in service to the 
        United States, and this devotion characterizes the 
        sacrifices of all submariners, past and present.
  (b) Sense of Congress.--Congress--
          (1) recognizes the 51st anniversary of the sinking of 
        U.S.S. Thresher;
          (2) remembers with profound sorrow the loss of U.S.S. 
        Thresher and her gallant crew of sailors and civilians 
        on April 10, 1963; and
          (3) expresses its deepest gratitude to all 
        submariners on ``eternal patrol'', who are forever 
        bound together by dedicated and honorable service to 
        the United States of America.

SEC. 1025. PILOT PROGRAM FOR SUSTAINMENT OF LITTORAL COMBAT SHIPS ON 
                    EXTENDED DEPLOYMENTS.

                  (A) in a foreign shipyard;
                  (B) at a facility outside of a foreign 
                shipyard; or
                  (C) at any other facility convenient to the 
                vessel.
          (3) Such maintenance or repair may be performed on a 
        vessel as described in paragraph (2) only if the work 
        is performed by United States Government personnel or 
        United States contractor personnel.
          (4) Facilities maintenance may be performed by a 
        foreign contractor on a vessel as described in

Such report shall include each of the following:
          (1) Lessons learned from the pilot program regarding 
        sustainment of Littoral Combat Ships while operating on 
        extended deployments, including the extent to which 
        shipboard personnel were involved in performing 
        maintenance.
          (2) A comprehensive sustainment strategy, including 
        maintenance requirements, concepts, and costs, intended 
        to support Littoral Combat Ships operating on extended 
        deployments.
          (3) Observations and recommendations regarding 
        limited exceptions to existing authorities required to 
        support Littoral Combat Ships operating on extended 
        deployments.
          (4) The effect of the pilot program on material 
        readiness and operational availability.
          (5) Whether overseas maintenance periodicities 
        undertaken during the pilot program were accomplished 
        in the scheduled or allotted timeframes throughout the 
        pilot program.
          (6) The total cost to sustain the three Littoral 
        Combat Ships selected for the pilot program during the 
        program, including all costs for Federal and contractor 
        employees performing corrective and preventive 
        maintenance, and all facilitization costs, both ashore 
        and shipboard.
          (7) A detailed comparison of costs, including the 
        cost of labor, between maintenance support provided in 
        the United States and any savings achieved by 
        performing facilities maintenance in foreign shipyards.
          (8) A description of the permanent facilities 
        required to support Littoral Combat Ships operating on 
        extended deployment at overseas locations.
  (c) Definitions.--In this section:
          (1) The term ``corrective and preventive maintenance 
        or repair'' means--
                  (A) maintenance or repair actions performed 
                as a result of a failure in order to return or

SEC. 1052. RESPONSE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE TO COMPROMISES OF 
                    CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.

  (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
          (1) Compromises of classified information cause 
        indiscriminate and long-lasting damage to United States 
        national security and often have a direct impact on the 
        safety of warfighters.
          (2) In 2010, hundreds of thousands of classified 
        documents were illegally copied and disclosed across 
        the Internet.
          (3) Classified information has been disclosed in 
        numerous public writings and manuscripts endangering 
        current operations.
          (4) In 2013, nearly 1,700,000 files were downloaded 
        from United States Government information systems, 
        threatening the national security of the United States 
        and placing the lives of United States personnel at 
        extreme risk. The majority of the information 
        compromised relates to the capabilities, operations, 
        tactics, techniques, and procedures of the Armed Forces 
        of the United States, and is the single greatest 
        quantitative compromise in the history of the United 
        States.
          (5) The Department of Defense is taking steps to 
        mitigate the harm caused by these leaks.
          (6) Congress must be kept apprised of the progress of 
        the mitigation efforts to ensure the protection of the 
        national security of the United States.
  (b) Reports Required.--
          (1) Initial report.--Not later than 60 days after the 
        date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of

        information. Such report shall include each of the 
        following:
                  (A) A description of any changes made to 
                Department of Defense policies or guidance 
                relating to significant compromises of 
                classified information, including regarding 
                security clearances for employees of the 
                Department, information technology, and 
                personnel actions.
                  (B) An overview of the efforts made by any 
                task force responsible for the mitigation of 
                such compromises of classified information.
                  (C) A description of the resources of the 
                Department that have been dedicated to efforts 
                relating to such compromises.

                Secretary to continue evaluating the damage 
                caused by, and to mitigate the damage from, 
                such compromises.
                  (E) A general description and estimate of the 
                anticipated costs associated with mitigating 
                such compromises.

        and 2016, the Secretary shall submit to the 
        congressional defense committees quarterly updates to 
        the report required by paragraph (1). Each such update 
        shall include information regarding any changes or 
        progress with respect to the matters covered by such

        Comptroller General of the United States shall submit 
        to the congressional defense committees a written 
        briefing on the assessment of the Comptroller General 
        of the Aviation Restructuring Initiative of the Army 
        and of any proposals submitted by the Chief of the 
        National Guard Bureau or the Cost Assessment and 
        Program Evaluation Office of the Department of Defense 
        that could serve as alternatives to the Army's proposal 
        for adjusting the structure and mix of its combat 
        aviation forces among regular Army, Army Reserve, and 
        Army National Guard units.
          (2) Report.--Not later than 60 days after the 
        submittal of the briefing under paragraph (1), the 
        Comptroller General shall submit to the congressional 
        defense committees a final report on the assessment 
        referred to in that paragraph.
  (b) Elements.--The briefing and report of the Comptroller 
General required by subsection (a) shall include, at a minimum, 
each of the following:
          (1) A comparison of the assumptions on strategy, 
        current demands, historical readiness rates, 
        anticipated combat requirements, and the constraints 
        and limitations associated with mobilization, 
        utilization, and rotation policies underlying the 
        Aviation Restructuring Initiative and any alternatives 
        proposed by the Chief of the National Guard Bureau and 
        the Department of Defense Cost Assessment and Program 
        Evaluation Office.
          (2) An assessment of the models used to estimate 
        future costs and cost savings associated with each 
        proposal for allocating Army aviation platforms among 
        the regular Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard 
        units.

  (c) Sense of Congress Regarding Additional Funding for the 
Army.--Congress is concerned with the planned reductions and 
realignments the Army has proposed for the regular Army, the 
Army National Guard, and the Army Reserves in order to comply 
with the funding constraints under the Budget Control Act of 
2011 (Public Law 112-25). Concerns are particularly associated 
with proposed reductions in end strength for all components 
that will result in additional reductions in the number of 
regular Army and National Guard brigade combat teams as well as 
reductions and realignments of combat aircraft within and 
between the regular Army and the Army National Guard. 
Sufficient funding should be provided to retain the force 
structure and sustain the readiness of as much Total Army 
combat capability as possible.

        Afghanistan.
