  (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
          (1) Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Teams are 
        strategic assets, stationed at the operational level, as an 
        immediate response capability to assist local responders in the 
        event of an emergency within the United States involving use or 
        potential use of weapons of mass destruction.
          (2) Since September 11 2001, Civil Support Teams have 
        responded to more than 200 requests for support from civil 
        authorities for actual or potential weapons of mass destruction 
        incidents and have supported various national events, including 
        the World Series, the Super Bowl, and the 2002 Winter Olympics.
          (3) To enhance homeland security as the Nation fights the war 
        against terrorism, each State and territory must have a Weapons 
        of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team to respond to potential 
        weapons of mass destruction incidents.
          (4) In section 1026 of the Bob Stump National Defense 
        Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2003 as passed the House of 
        Representatives on May 10, 2002 (H.R. 4546 of the 107th 
        Congress), the House of Representatives has already taken 
        action to that end by expressing the sense of Congress that the 
        Secretary of Defense should establish 23 additional Weapons of 
        Mass Destruction Civil Support Teams in order to provide at 
        least one such team in each State and territory.
          (5) According to a September 2001 report of the Comptroller 
        General entitled ``Combating Terrorism'', the Department of 
        Defense plans that there eventually should be a Weapons of Mass 
        Destruction Civil Support Teams in each State, territory, and 
        the District of Columbia.
  (b) Requirement.--From funds authorized to be appropriated in section 
101, the Secretary of Defense shall ensure that there is established at 
least one Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team in each State.
  (c) Definitions.--For purposes of this section:
          (1) The term ``Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support 
        Team'' means a team of members of the reserve components of the 
        armed forces that is established under section 12310(c) of 
        title 10, United States Code, in support of emergency 
        preparedness programs to prepare for or to respond to any 
        emergency involving the use of a weapon of mass destruction.
          (2) The term ``State'' includes the District of Columbia, 
        Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam.
  (d) Deadline for Implementation.--The Secretary of Defense shall

                    ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES CONDUCTING COUNTER-TERRORISM 
                    ACTIVITIES.

  (a) Authority.--A joint task force of the Department of Defense that 
provides support to law enforcement agencies conducting counter-drug 
activities may also provide, consistent with all applicable laws and 
regulations, support to law enforcement agencies conducting counter-
terrorism activities.
  (b) Conditions.--Any support provided under subsection (a) may only 
be provided in the geographic area of responsibility of the joint task 
force.

SEC. 303. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON ASSISTANCE TO FIRST RESPONDERS.

  It is the sense of Congress that the Secretary of Defense should, to 
the extent the Secretary determines appropriate, use funds provided in 
this Act to assist, train, and equip local fire and police departments 
that would be a first responder to a domestic terrorist incident that 
may come about in connection with the continued fight to prosecute the 
war on terrorism.

                Explanation of the Committee Amendments

    The committee adopted an amendment in the nature of a 
substitute during the consideration of H.R. 4547. The title of 
the bill is amended to reflect the amendment to the text of the 
bill. The remainder of the report discusses the bill, as 
amended.

                         Purpose and Background

    The President's Budget Request for Fiscal Year 2003 
included a provision for the establishment of a special reserve 
fund in the amount of $10 billion exclusively for the purpose 
of financing the costs of the war on terrorism. The Concurrent 
Resolution on the Budget for Fiscal Year 2003, H. Con. Res. 
353, endorsed this request by creating such a reserve fund in 
section 201 which stipulates that the $10 billion in fiscal 
year 2003 budget authority contained in this fund would only be 
used to adjust the national defense function allocation ``if 
the Committee on Appropriations or the Committee on Armed 
Services reports a bill . . . that provides new budget 
authority (and outlays flowing therefrom) for operations of the 
Department of Defense to prosecute the war on terrorism.''
    Accordingly, the Committee on Armed Services, in 
considering the defense authorization legislation for fiscal 
year 2003, established a two-part authorization process. The 
first part consisted of the baseline defense authorization bill 
addressing the entirety of the fiscal year 2003 defense program 
minus the $10 billion war reserve fund. This bill, H.R. 4546, 
was reported out of committee on May 1, 2002 and passed the 
House on May 10, 2002. The second part involved the remaining 
$10 billion of the President's request and received preliminary 
consideration by the committee on May 1, 2002, but complete 
consideration was deferred pending a detailed budget amendment 
request by the President. On July 3, 2002, the President 
transmitted to Congress such a budget amendment requesting that 
the Congress authorize and appropriate $10 billion for fiscal 
year 2003 in a Defense Emergency Response Fund and grant the 
Department of Defense significant latitude in executing this 
fund.
    On July 18, 2002, the Committee on Armed Services met and 
continued consideration of the H.R. 4547, the Cost of War 
Authorization Act of 2002, amending it to cover the totality of 
the remaining $10 billion of the President's budget request. 
The committee amendment declines to establish the Defense 
Emergency Response Fund for fiscal year 2003. The committee has 
found this fiscal device to significantly reduce the ability of 
Congress to track and conduct oversight over the execution of 
Department of Defense funds. However, the Committee recognizes 
the unique challenges facing the Department as it continues to 
prosecute an unpredictable and unprecedented global war on 
terrorism. Therefore, the committee amendment provides the 
Department with specific authorization to execute those 
programs that have been specifically identified yet it also 
provides significant flexibility in the execution of the 
remaining funds. The specific mechanism the Committee 
recommends is detailed below.

            Relationship of Authorization to Appropriations

    The bill does not generally provide budget authority. The 
bill authorizes appropriations. Subsequent appropriation acts 
provide budget authority. The bill addresses the following 
categories in the Department of Defense budget: procurement; 
research, development, test and evaluation; operation and 
maintenance; military personnel; and military construction.

                  Summary of Authorization in the Bill

    The President requested, by amendment, budget authority of 
$10.0 billion for the national defense budget function for 
fiscal year 2003. Of this amount, the President requested up to 
$1.9 billion for Procurement or Research, Development, Test and 
Evaluation accounts; up to $2.5 billion for Military Personnel 
accounts; and up to $5.6 billion for Operation and Maintenance 
accounts as well as Military Construction or Working Capital 
Funds.
    The committee recommends an overall level of $10.0 billion 
in budget authority.

                    Summary Table of Authorizations

    The following table provides a summary of the amounts that 
would be authorized for appropriation in the bill.

    This section provides that this Act may be cited as the 
``Cost of War Against Terrorism Authorization Act of 2002.''

Section 2--Amounts Authorized for the War on Terrorism

    This section would authorize $10 billion for the conduct of 
operations in continuation of the war on terrorism. This 
section further provides that this authorization is in 
accordance with the Congressional Joint Resolution entitled 
``Authorization for Use of Military Force'' (Public Law 107-40; 
50 U.S.C. 1541 note). In pertinent part, this Joint Resolution 
authorized the President of the United States ``to use all 
necessary and appropriate force against those nations, 
organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, 
committed, or aided the terrorists attacks on September 11, 
2001 * * * ''

Section 3--Additional Authorizations

appropriated in this Act would be in addition to amounts 
authorized to be appropriated for military functions of the 
Department of Defense for fiscal year 2003 in the National 
Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2003 or in any other 
Act.

                TITLE I--AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS


                       ITEMS OF SPECIAL INTEREST

Improving Intelligence Collection, Analysis, and Dissemination For and 
        In the Military

    The committee notes that timely collection, analysis, and 
dissemination of intelligence to the warfighter are essential 
to winning the global war on terrorism. The armed forces must 
be able to determine the plans and intentions of our enemies, 
whether they are nations, groups or individuals. Human source 
intelligence, combined with other sources, often provides the 
key insight, particularly when combating terrorism.
    Given the new threats the United States faces, the 
committee strongly urges the Department of Defense to increase 
its emphasis on human source intelligence collection and 
analysis. This must include additional personnel assigned to 
human source intelligence, improving both their linguistic 
skills and regional expertise, and establishing a career path 
that incentivizes retention of the best. These capabilities 
take time to develop, but programs designed to improve all 
aspects of human source intelligence will greatly enhance our 
ability to combat the new array of threats that face our 
nation.

Military Construction for Units Activated To Support the War on 
        Terrorism

    The committee is aware that a number of military units have 
been activated in direct response to the September 11, 2001, 
attacks and the ongoing War on Terrorism. Some of these units, 
such as the 4th Marine Expeditionary Brigade (Anti-Terrorism), 
are expected to be permanent additions to the force structure 
of their respective military service. The committee has learned 
that many of these units are housed in temporary, inefficient 
workspaces that detract from the unit's ability to perform its 
primary mission. The committee is concerned that the 
secretaries of the military departments have not provided the 
necessary military construction and infrastructure to support 
the new unit activations, despite their direct connection to 
current operations. Accordingly, the committee urges the 
secretaries of the military departments to complete planning 
and design activities for any new facilities required to 
support these units and to advance these projects' priority in 
their military department's Future Years Defense Plan.

Special Operations Command Training

    The committee recognizes that training is an integral part 
of readiness and is necessary to successfully prosecute the war 
on terrorism. The committee also recognizes that military 
aircraft normally utilized to accomplish certain types of 
specialized training are sometimes unavailable. Due to the 
recent unavailability of military aircraft, the United States 
Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has been contracting with 
civilian aviation companies to satisfy readiness requirements, 
primarily airborne operations proficiency. The Department of 
Defense Air Transportation Quality and Safety Review Program 
(DOD Directive 4500.53) was recently revised to include 
additional administrative requirements for civilian aviation 
providers. The committee understands that these new 
administrative requirements may be impacting USSOCOMs ability 
to maintain airborne operations proficiency. The committee 
urges the Secretary of Defense to reevaluate DDOD 4500.53 to 
address USSOCOMs specific readiness requirements.

                         LEGISLATIVE PROVISIONS

            Subtitle A--Authorizations to Transfer Accounts


Section 101--War on Terrorism Operations Fund

    This section would authorize a fiscal year 2003 
appropriation of $3.54 billion for the Department of Defense to 
be used only for operations Operation Noble Eagle and Operation 
Enduring Freedom, and permit the Secretary of Defense to 
transfer the authorized funding, in amounts determined at the 
Secretary's discretion, to any fiscal year 2003 military 
personnel or operation and maintenance account of the 
department.

Section 102--War on Terrorism Equipment Replacement and Enhancement 
        Fund

    The committee continues to be deeply concerned over the 
adequacy of the current Department of Defense modernization 
program, particularly as it pertains to critical military 
capabilities essential for the successful prosecution of the 
war on terrorism. Thecommittee believes that providing the 
necessary resources to accomplish this task involves more than merely 
paying the incremental operation and military personnel costs, but also 
should include appropriate enhancement of combat equipment and 
addressing chronic shortfalls in military capabilities that are 
directly and materially reducing the ability of the military services 
to prosecute their mission in support of this wide-ranging conflict.
    The Administration's July 3, 2002 budget amendment includes 
only $200 million for the acquisition of selected ammunition 
out of the overall total of $10 billion. The committee is 
disappointed that the Administration has largely excluded 
military equipment acquisition from its proposal. This approach 
results in an imbalanced and incomplete package that does not 
properly finance the range of war-related needs and activities 
of the Department of Defense.
    Accordingly, the committee recommends a provision (section 
102) that would establish an Equipment Replacement and 
Enhancement Fund. This fund would grant the Secretary of 
Defense both the flexibility and the resources necessary to: 
(1) conduct emergency replacement of equipment and munitions 
lost or expended as result of Operation Noble Eagle or 
Operation Enduring Freedom or (2) enhance critical military 
capabilities necessary to carry out the war on terrorism. This 
fund would grant the Secretary significant flexibility in 
executing these funds within the established parameters. The 
committee recommends authorization of $1 billion for this fund.
    The committee further believes that the Secretary should 
give priority consideration to the following war-related 
equipment acquisition priorities identified by the military 
service chiefs in their unfunded requirements lists in 
determining how to allocate the funds provided by this fund:
          (1) Replacement of Global Hawk unmanned aerial 
        vehicles lost during operations;
          (2) Replacement of munitions;
          (3) Replacement of vehicles;
          (4) Replacement of aircraft engines and spare parts;
          (5) Force protection equipment and material;
          (6) Special operations aircraft spares and equipment;
          (7) Air expeditionary equipment and material;
          (8) Combat search and air rescue vehicle upgrades; 
        and
          (9) Aircraft self-protection and countermeasures 
        equipment.

Section 103--General Provisions Applicable to Transfers

    This section would clarify that the funds transferred from 
the funds established by sections 101 and 102 shall be merged 
with the accounts to which the funds are transferred and shall 
be treated in the same fashion as the funds in the receiving 
accounts. Further, this section would require that the 
Department provide the Congressional defense committees with 15 
days advance notice prior to a transfer from these funds. The 
Committee strongly urges the Department to improve the fidelity 
of the information it provides for war related expenditures. 
While it is somewhat understandable that the Department cannot 
entirely predict the precise nature of future wartime 
expenditures, the Committee believes no such consideration 
exists for providing detailed budget execution data once the 
funds are obligated. Finally, this section would specify that 
any transfers resulting from the funds established by sections 
101 and 102 would be in addition to previously established 
general transfer authority provided to the Department.

            Subtitle B--Authorizations to Specified Accounts


Section 111--Army Procurement

    This section would authorize an additional $104.7 million 
for fiscal year 2003 Army procurement as contained in the 
amended budget request.

Section 112--Navy and Marine Corps Procurement

    This section would authorize an additional $884.8 million 
for fiscal year 2003 Navy and Marine Corps procurement as 
contained in the amended budget request.

Section 113--Air Force Procurement

    This section would authorize an additional $383.25 million 
for fiscal year 2003 Air Force procurement as contained in the 
amended budget request.

Section 114--Defense-Wide Activities Procurement

    This section would authorize an additional $620.414 million 
for fiscal year 2003 Defense-Wide Activities procurement as 
contained in the amended budget request.

Section 115--Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Defense-Wide

    This section would authorize an additional $390.1 million 
for fiscal year 2003 Research, Development, Test and Evaluation 
Defense-Wide as contained in the amended budget request.

Section 116--Classified Activities

    This section would authorize a total of $1,980,674 million 
for fiscal year 2003 classified programs as contained in the 
amended budget request.

Section 117--Global Information Grid System

    This section would withhold authorization of appropriations 
for the Global Information Grid (GIG) until the Secretary of 
Defense certifies that the end-to-end GIG system is secure and 
protected from unauthorized access to the information 
transmitted through the system.

Section 118--Operation and Maintenance

    This section would authorize an additional $553.2 million 
for fiscal year 2003 operation and maintenance programs. 
Specifically, this section would authorize $14,270,000 for 
contract linguists for the Army, budget activity three, Basic 
Skills/Advanced Training; $5,252,500 for security, 
communications and information operations (JDIS/LOCE/CENTRIX) 
for the Navy; $11,400,000 for security, communications and 
information operations for the Marine Corps; $517,285,000 for 
combat air patrol operations for the Air Force; and $5,000,000 
for support to law enforcement agencies that conduct counter-
drug activities, to conduct counter-terrorism activities. The 
budget request included all of these accounts in the Defense 
Emergency Response Fund (DERF), which were all subsequently 
transferred by the committee to their respective service and 
budget activity.
    Concerning the combat air patrol account for the Air Force, 
the budget request included $1.2 billion for these operations. 
In previous committee action (H.R. 4546), this account was 
reduced to $900.0 million due to changes in the anticipated 
requirements to support combat air patrol operations. The 
committee understands that the current requirement is now 
$522.0 million for fiscal year 2003. The committee recommends 
$517.285 million for this activity.

Section 119--Military Personnel

    This section would authorize a total of $503.1 million for 
fiscal year 2003 military personnel accounts.

            Subtitle C--Military Construction Authorizations


Section 131--Authorized Military Construction and Land Acquisition 
        Projects

    This section contains a list of authorized Army, Navy, and 
Air Force construction projects for fiscal year 2003 as 
contained in the amended budget request.

             TITLE II--WARTIME PAY AND ALLOWANCE INCREASES


                                OVERVIEW

    The war on terrorism highlighted the need to increase a 
series of special pays, allowances, and benefits of particular 
importance when troops are deployed under combat conditions. 
Inflation has eroded the value of these elements of the 
compensation system over time and has diminished their 
effectiveness as incentives for individual members to perform 
the duties involved and remain in the service.

                         LEGISLATIVE PROVISIONS

Section 201--Increase in Rate for Family Separation Allowance

    This section would increase the family separation allowance 
from $100 per month to $125 per month.

Section 202--Increase in Rates for Various Hazardous Duty Incentive 
        Pays

    This section would increase hazardous duty incentive pays 
from their current rates by $50 per month.

Section 203--Increase in Rate for Diving Duty Special Pay

    This section would increase diving duty special pay for 
officers from $240 per month to $290 per month, and for 
enlisted members from $340 per month to $390 per month.

Section 204--Increase in Rate for Imminent Danger Pay

    This section would increase the imminent danger pay from 
$150 per month to $250 per month.

Section 205--Increase in Rate for Career Enlisted Flyer Incentive Pay

    This section would increase career enlisted flyer pay by 
$50 per month for each category of recipient based on years of 
service completed.

Section 206--Increase in Amount of Death Gratuity

    This section would increase the death gratuity paid to 
service members who die while on active duty from $6,000 to 
$12,000.

Section 207--Effective Date

    This section would establish an effective date for sections 
201 through 205 as the later of the first day of the first 
month beginning on or after the date of enactment of this act 
or October 1, 2002. This section would also establish an 
effective date for section 206 as the later of the date of 
enactment of this act or October 1, 2002.

                    TITLE III--ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS


                         LEGISLATIVE PROVISIONS

Section 301--Establishment of at Least One Weapons of Mass Destruction 
        Civil Support Team in Each State

    This section would authorize the funding to establish at 
least one Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team in 
each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin 
Islands and Guam, and would require the Secretary of Defense to 
establish the necessary 23 additional teams not later than 
September 30, 2003.

Section 302--Authority for Joint Task Forces To Provide Support to Law 
        Enforcement Agencies Conducting Counter-Terrorism Activities

    This section would authorize those joint task forces (JTFs) 
of the Department of Defense that provide support to law 
enforcement agencies conducting counter-drug activities, namely 
JTFs 4, 5, and 6, to provide similar support to law enforcement 
agencies conducting counter-terrorism activities. This section 
would also authorize $5 million to provide this discretionary 
support. Any support provided under this section must be 
consistent with all applicable laws and regulations, and the 
support may only be provided in the geographic area of 
responsibility of the joint task force. The committee expects 
that requests for JTF support to law enforcement agencies for 
counter-terrorism activities will follow the normal request and 
decision procedures established by the Department of Defense 
and its subordinate commands, and that this support will entail 
no more than the type of assistance already provided to law 
enforcement agencies by the JTFs for counter-drug operations, 
such as aviation reconnaissance, intelligence analysis, and 
basic skills training.

Section 303--Sense of Congress on Assistance to First Responders

    This section would express the sense of Congress that, to 
the extent deemed appropriate, the Secretary of Defense should 
provide funding to assist, train, and equip local fire and 
police departments that would be the first responders to a 
domestic terrorist incident associated with the war on 
terrorism.

                           Departmental Data

    The White House submitted a request for an FY 2003 budget 
amendment for the Department of Defense, as illustrated by the 
correspondence set out below:

                 DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE BUDGET AMENDMENT

                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, DC, July 3, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: I ask the Congress to consider the 
enclosed request for an FY 2003 budget amendment for the 
Department of Defense. This package reflects my decision to 
request, by program, $10.0 billion in the Defense Emergency 
Response Fund for expenses relating to the war against 
terrorism. The budget totals proposed in my FY 2003 Budget 
would not be affected by this amendment.
    This request is vital to protecting U.S. national security 
options. An essential component in the success of the global 
war on terrorism is sustaining our investment in intelligence 
capabilities. This request will improve collection, analysis, 
coordination, and execution of intelligence priorities and 
plans, as we expand into new theaters of operations and build 
new relationships.
    This reserve will also enable the Nation to meet developing 
operational requirements of a fluid war environment. Under any 
scenario, needs associated with the operation and mobilization 
of guard and reserve units and operations and maintenance costs 
to support
            Sincerely,
                                            George W. Bush,
                                                         President.
    Enclosures.

                           Committee Position

    On July 18, 2002 the Committee on Armed Services, a quorum 
being present, approved H.R. 4547, as amended, by a vote of 50-
1.

                              Fiscal Data

    Pursuant to clause 3(d) rule XIII of the Rules of the House 
of Representatives, the committee attempted to ascertain annual 
outlays resulting from the bill during fiscal year 2003 and the 
following four years. The results of such efforts are reflected 
in the cost estimate prepared by the Director of the 
Congressional Budget Office under section 402 of the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974, which is included in this 
report pursuant to clause 3(c)(3).

                  CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE ESTIMATE

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(3) of rule XIII of the House 
of Representatives, the cost estimate prepared by the 
Congressional Budget Office and submitted pursuant to section 
402 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 is as follows:

                                                     July 22, 2002.
Hon. Bob Stump,
Chairman, Committee on Armed Services,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 4547, the Cost of 
War Against Terrorism Authorization Act of 2002.
    The CBO staff contact is Kent Christensen. If you wish 
further details on this estimate, we will be pleased to provide 
them.
            Sincerely,
                                                    Dan L. Crippen.

H.R. 4547--Cost of War Against Terrorism Authorization Act of 2002

    Summary: H.R. 4547 would authorize appropriations totaling 
$10 billion for fiscal year 2003 for the Department of Defense 
(DoD) for the conduct of operations in continuation of the war 
on terrorism. It also contains several provisions that would 
affect military compensation and that would establish 
additional teams within the Army National Guard to provide 
support to civil authorities in the event of an attack 
involving a weapon of mass destruction. CBO estimates that 
appropriation of the authorized amounts for 2003 would result 
in additional outlays of $9.9 billion over the 2003-2007 
period. Because it would not affect direct spending or 
receipts, pay-as-you-go procedures would not apply.
    The bill also contains provisions that would raise the 
costs of discretionary defense programs over the 2004-2007 
period. CBO estimates that those provisions would require 
additional appropriations of $965 million over those four 
years.
    H.R. 4547 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) 
and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal 
governments.
    Estimated cost to the Federal Government: The estimated 
budgetary impact of H.R. 4547 is shown in Table 1. The costs of 
this legislation fall within budget function 050 (national 
defense).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note.--This table excludes estimated authorizations of appropriations for years after 2003. (Those additional
  authorizations are shown in Table 3.)

\1\ The 2002 level is the amount appropriated to the Defense Emergency Response Fund to cover costs of the war;
  that appropriation is contained in the Emergency Supplemental Act, 2002 (Division B of Public Law 107-117).
\2\ These figures include spending from emergency response appropriations in 2001 and 2002. They do not include
  the effect of pending appropriations for DoD in H.R. 4775, the 2002 Supplemental Appropriations Act for
  Further Recovery From and Response To Terrorist Attacks on the United States, as passed by the House. If
  enacted, those appropriations would increase budget authority by $15,799 million in 2002 and outlays by about
  $15,710 million over the 2002-2007 period.

Basis of Estimate

    The bill would specifically authorize appropriations 
totaling $10 billion in 2003 (see Table 2). The estimate 
assumes that the amounts authorized for 2003 will be 
appropriated near the beginning of fiscal year 2003. Estimated 
outlays are based on historical spending patterns for similar 
activities.

    The bill also contains provisions that would affect various 
costs, mostly for personnel, that would be covered by the 
fiscal year 2003 authorization and by authorizations in future 
years. Table 3 contains estimates of those amounts. In addition 
to the costs covered by the authorizations in the bill for 
2003, these provisions would raise estimated costs by $965 
million over the 2004-2007 period. The following sections 
describe the provisions identified in Table 3 and provide 
information about CBO's cost estimates for those provisions.

Note.--For every item in this table, the 2003 levels are included in the amounts specifically authorized to be
  appropriated in the bill. Those amounts are shown in Table 2. Amounts shown in this table for 2004 through
  2007 are not included in Table 1.

            Compensation and benefits
    H.R. 4547 contains several provisions that would increase 
certain pay and allowances for military personnel or their 
survivors that are linked to the special circumstances of war. 
For this estimate, CBO assumes that the number of 
servicemembers projected by DoD to receive these benefits in 
2003 will remain the same for the 2004-2007 period. CBO notes 
that the number of servicemembers receiving these pays and 
benefits could increase or decrease depending on the level of 
U.S. military participation in the ongoing war on terrorism and 
future conflicts. Based on data provided by DoD, CBO estimates 
that the costs of these provisions would be as follows:
     Increasing imminent danger pay by $100 a month 
would cost $84 million a year and about $420 million over the 
2003-2007 period.
     Increasing other hazardous duty pay, including pay 
for demolition work and flight deck duty, by $50 a month would 
cost $38 million in 2003 and $190 million over the five-year 
period.
     Increasing the family separation allowance by $25 
a month would cost $28 million in 2003 and about $140 million 
over the 2003-2007 period.
     Increasing flight pay for crew members by $50 a 
month would cost $10 million in 2003 and $50 million over the 
five-year period.
     Increasing the death gratuity given to survivors 
of those killed on duty by $6,000 would cost $8 million in 2003 
and $40 million over the 2003-2007 period.
     Increasing career enlisted flying incentive pay by 
$50 a month would cost $7 million in 2003 and about $35 million 
over the five-year period.
     Increasing diving pay by $50 a month would cost $4 
million in 2003 and about $20 million over the 2003-2007 
period.
     Increasing hazardous duty pay for free-fall 
parachute jumping by $50 a month would cost $1 million in 2003 
and $5 million over the 2003-2007 period.
            Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Teams
    Section 301 would establish at least one Weapons of Mass 
Destruction Civil Support Team (WMD-CST) in each of the 50 
states, the Virgin Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the District 
of Columbia by September 30, 2003. A WMD-CST is an Army 
National Guard unit made up of 22 servicemembers who are 
specially trained to provide support to civil authorities in 
the event of an attack involving a weapon of mass destruction. 
DoD has created 32 of these teams under authorities provided in 
current law, two of which are located in the state of 
California. Therefore, CBO estimates that the department would 
need to stand up a total of 23 new teams under this provision.
    Based on data provided by DoD, CBO estimates that it would 
cost about $2.5 million in 2003 to train and operate each new 
WMD-CST. In addition, each new team would incur start-up cost 
in 2003 to purchase new equipment, such as mobile laboratories, 
which CBO estimates would cost about $1.5 million a team. After 
adjusting for inflation, CBO estimates that the cost to 
establish and operate the 23 new WMD-CSTs would total about $91 
million in 2003 and $336 million over the 2003-2007 period.
    Pay-as-you-go considerations: None.
    Intergovernmental and private-sector impact: H.R. 4546 
contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as 
defined in UMRA and would impose no costs on state, local, or 
tribal governments.
    Estimate prepared by: Federal costs: defense outlays: Kent 
Christensen; military personnel: Michelle Patterson; operations 
and support: Matthew Schmit; impact on state, local, and tribal 
Governments: Greg Waring; impact on the private sector: Sally 
S. Maxwell.
    Estimate approved by: Peter H. Fontaine; Deputy Assistant 
Director for Budget Analysis.

                            ADDITIONAL VIEWS

    We appreciate the language that the Committee has included 
in section 2, pertaining to the scope of the authorization in 
this bill.
    Section 2 states that the $10 billion authorized in this 
legislation ``are authorized for the conduct of operations in 
continuation of the war on terrorism in accordance with the 
Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 
U.S.C. 1541 note) and, to the extent appropriations are made 
pursuant to such authorizations, shall only be expended in a 
manner consistent with the purposes in section 2(a) thereof.''
    Section 2(a) of the Use of Force resolution authorizes the 
President ``to use all necessary and appropriate force against 
those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, 
authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that 
occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations 
or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of 
international terrorism against the United States by such 
nations, organizations, or persons.''
    Therefore, we conclude that the Committee intends that 
funds authorized in this bill are only to be used for military 
operations against entities responsible for the September 11 
attacks, or entities that harbor those responsible.
    Likewise, we believe funds in this bill cannot be used to 
expand the war on terrorism to other nations, absent evidence 
that a nation was responsible for the 9/11 attacks or is 
harboring those responsible, unless subsequently authorized for 
such a purpose by Congress.

                            DISSENTING VIEWS

    The attacks of September 11, 2001 caused significant 
changes throughout our society. For our military services, this 
included increased force protection, greater security, and of 
course the deployment to and prosecution of the War on 
Terrorism in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Sadly, one of the first 
acts of our President was to waive the high deployment overtime 
pay of our servicemen and women who are serving on the front 
lines of our new War. The Navy estimates that the first year 
costs of this pay would equal about 40 cruise missiles. The 
total cost of this overtime pay may only equal about 300 cruise 
missiles, yet this Administration said it would cost too much 
to pay our young men and women what the Congress and the 
previous Administration had promised them.
    In another ironic twist, the War on Terrorism has the 
potential to bring the US military into American life as never 
before. A Northern Command has been created to manage the 
military's activity within the continental United States. 
Operation Noble Eagle saw combat aircraft patrolling the air 
above major metropolitan areas, and our airports are only now 
being relieved of National Guard security forces. Moreover, 
there is a growing concern that the military will be used 
domestically, within our borders, with intelligence and law 
enforcement mandates as some now call for a review of the Posse 
Comitatus Act prohibitions on military activity within our 
country.
    In the 1960s, the lines between illegal intelligence, law 
enforcement and military practices became blurred as Americans 
wanting to make America a better place for all were targeted 
and attacked for political beliefs and political behavior. 
Under the cloak of the Cold War, military intelligence was used 
for domestic purposes to conduct surveillance on civil rights, 
social equity, antiwar, and other activists. In the case of Dr. 
Martin Luther King, Jr., Operation Lantern Spike involved 
military intelligence covertly operating a surveillance 
operation of the civil rights leader up to the time of his 
assassination. In a period of two months, recently declassified 
documents on Operation Lantern Spike indicate that 240 military 
personnel were assigned in the two months of March and April to 
conduct surveillance on Dr. King. The documents further reveal 
that 16,900 man-hours were spent on this assignment. Dr. King 
had done nothing more than call for black suffrage, an end to 
black poverty, and an end to the Vietnam War. Dr. King was the 
lantern of justice for America: spreading light on issues the 
Administration should have been addressing. On April 4, 1968, 
Dr. King's valuable point of light was snuffed out. The 
documents I have submitted for the record outline the illegal 
activities of the FBI and its CoIntelPro program. A 1967 memo 
from J. Edgar Hoover to 22 FBI field offices outlined the 
COINTELPRO program well: ``The purpose of this new 
counterintelligence endeavor is to expose, disrupt, misdirect, 
or otherwise neutralize'' black activist leaders and 
organizations.
    As a result of the Church Committee hearings, we later 
learned that the FBI and other government authorities were 
conducting black bag operations that included illegally 
breaking and entering private homes to collect information on 
individuals. FBI activities included ``bad jacketing,'' or 
falsely accusing individuals of collaboration with the 
authorities. It included the use of paid informants to set up 
on false charges targeted individuals. And it resulted in the 
murder of some individuals. Geronimo Pratt Ji Jaga spent 27 
years in prison for a crime he did not commit. And in 
COINTELPRO documents subsequently released, we learn that Fred 
Hampton was murdered in his bed while his pregnant wife slept 
next to him after a paid informant slipped drugs in his drink.
    Needless to say, such operations were well outside the 
bounds of what normal citizens would believe to be the role of 
the military, and the Senate investigations conducted by 
Senator Frank Church found that to be true. Though the United 
States was fighting the spread of communism in the face of the 
Cold War, the domestic use of intelligence and military assets 
against its own civilians was unfortunately reminiscent of the 
police state built up by the Communists we were fighting.
    We must be certain that the War on Terrorism does not 
threaten our liberties again. Amendments to H.R. 4547, the 
Costs of War Against Terrorism Act, that would increase the 
role of drug interdiction task forces to include counter 
intelligence, and that would increase the military 
intelligence's ability to conduct electronic and financial 
investigations, can be the first steps towards a return to the 
abuses of constitutional rights during the Cold War. Further, 
this bill includes nearly $2 billion in additional funds for 
intelligence accounts. When taken into account with the extra-
judicial incarceration of thousands of immigration violators, 
the transfer of prisoners from law enforcement custody to 
military custody, and the consideration of a ``volunteer'' 
terrorism tip program, America must stand up and protect itself 
from the threat not only of terrorism, but of a police state of 
its own.
    There does exist a need to increase personnel pay accounts, 
replenish operations and maintenance accounts and replace lost 
equipment. The military has an appropriate role in protecting 
the United States from foreign threats, and should remain 
dedicated to preparing for those threats. Domestic uses of the 
military have long been prohibited for good reason, and the 
same should continue to apply to all military functions, 
especially any and all military intelligence and surveillance. 
Congress and the Administration must be increasingly vigilant 
towards the protection of and adherence to our constitutional 
rights and privileges. For, if we win the war on terrorism, but 
create a police state in the process, what have we won?
