                                PURPOSE

    The purpose of this bill is to provide appropriations for 
fiscal year 2020, beginning October 1, 2019 and ending 
September 30, 2020, for energy and water development, and for 
other related purposes. It supplies funds for water resources 
development programs and related activities of the Corps of 
Engineers' civil works program in title I; for the Department 
of the Interior's Bureau of Reclamation and Central Utah 
Project in title II; for the Department of Energy's energy 
research and development activities, including environmental 
restoration and waste management, and the atomic energy defense 
activities of the National Nuclear Security Administration in 
title III; and for independent agencies and commissions, 
including the Appalachian Regional Commission, Delta Regional 
Authority, Denali Commission, Northern Border Regional 
Commission, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in title IV.

                SUMMARY OF ESTIMATES AND RECOMMENDATIONS

    The fiscal year 2020 budget estimates for the bill total 
$38,059,042,000 in new budget (obligational) authority. The 
recommendation of the Committee totals $48,866,000,000. This is 
$10,806,958,000 above the budget estimates and $4,206,000,000 
above the enacted appropriation for the current fiscal year.

                         Subcommittee Hearings

    To develop this recommendation, the Committee held four 
budget hearings in April and May 2019 in connection with the 
fiscal year 2020 budget requests for the Corps of Engineers, 
Bureau of Reclamation, Department of Energy and National 
Nuclear Security Administration, and the Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission. The hearings provided officials from the agencies 
with an opportunity to present the administration's most 
pressing priorities to the Committee. The Committee also 
invited and received recommendations from Senators and outside 
witnesses.

                              INTRODUCTION

    The Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development's 302(b) 
allocation totals $48,866,000,000 of net budget authority for 
fiscal year 2020, including adjustments, which represents an 
increase of $4,206,000,000 above fiscal year 2019 enacted 
levels. Within the amount recommended, $24,400,000,000 is 
classified as defense (050) spending and $24,466,000,000 is 
classified as non-defense (non-050) spending.
    The Committee's recommendation includes funding for the 
highest priority activities across the agencies funded in the 
bill. The recommendation includes funds for critical water 
infrastructure, including our Nation's inland waterways, ports, 
and harbors; agricultural water supply and drought relief in 
the West; groundbreaking scientific research and development, 
including world-class supercomputing; support for the Nation's 
nuclear weapons, non-proliferation, and nuclear Navy programs; 
and critical economic development.

                                TITLE I

                       CORPS OF ENGINEERS--CIVIL

                         DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY

                       Corps of Engineers--Civil

                       OVERVIEW OF RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $7,750,000,000 for the Corps of 
Engineers [Corps], an increase of $2,786,255,000 above the 
budget request.
    The Committee's recommendation sets priorities by 
supporting our Nation's water infrastructure. Specifically, for 
the sixth consecutive year, the Committee recommendation 
provides adequate appropriations to utilize all of the 
estimated fiscal year 2020 revenues from the Inland Waterways 
Trust Fund and meets the target prescribed in the Water 
Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014 [WRRDA], as 
amended, for Corps projects eligible for Harbor Maintenance 
Trust Funds.

                              INTRODUCTION

    The Corps' civil works mission is to provide quality, 
responsive engineering services to the Nation in peace and war. 
Approximately 23,000 civilians and about 290 military officers 
are responsible for executing the civil works mission. This 
bill only funds the civil works functions of the Corps.
    The Corps maintains our inland waterways, keeps our ports 
open, manages a portion of our drinking water supply, provides 
emission free electricity from dams, looks after many of our 
recreational waters, helps manage the river levels during 
flooding, provides environmental stewardship, and emergency 
response to natural disasters. The annual net economic benefit 
generated by the Corps' civil works mission is estimated to be 
$109,830,000,000, which equates to a return of about $16.60 for 
every $1 expended.
    The Corps' responsibilities include:
  --Navigation systems, including 13,000 miles of deep draft 
        channels, 12,000 miles of inland waterways, 239 lock 
        chambers, and 1,067 harbors, which handle over 2.3 
        billion tons of cargo annually;
  --Flood risk management infrastructure, including 709 dams, 
        14,700 miles of levees, and multiple hurricane and 
        storm damage risk reduction projects along the coast;
  --Municipal and industrial water supply storage at 136 
        projects spread across 25 States;
  --Environmental stewardship, infrastructure, and ecosystem 
        restoration;
  --Recreation for approximately 370 million recreation visits 
        per year to Corps projects;
  --Regulation of waters under Federal statutes; and
  --Maintaining hydropower capacity of nearly 24,000 megawatts 
        at 75 projects.

                        BUDGET STRUCTURE CHANGES

    The fiscal year 2020 budget request for the Corps proposed 
numerous structural changes, including the creation of two new 
accounts--Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund and Inland Waterways 
Trust Fund--and the shifting of various studies and projects 
between accounts. The Committee rejects all such proposed 
changes and instead recommends funding for the requested 
studies and projects in the accounts in which funding has 
traditionally been provided. Unless expressly noted, the 
Committee recommends studies and projects remain at the funding 
levels included in the budget request, but in different 
accounts than in the budget request. In particular:
  --Projects requested in the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund 
        account are shown in the Construction, Mississippi 
        River and Tributaries, or Operation and Maintenance 
        accounts, as appropriate;
  --Projects requested in the Inland Waterways Trust Fund 
        account are shown in the Construction account;
  --Dredged material management plans requested in the 
        Investigations account are shown in the Operation and 
        Maintenance account;
  --Dam safety modification studies requested in the 
        Investigations account are shown in the Dam Safety and 
        Seepage/Stability Correction Program in the 
        Construction account;
  --Dam Safety and Seepage/Stability Correction Program 
        management costs requested in the Expenses account are 
        shown in the Construction account;
  --Sand mitigation projects requested in the Harbor 
        Maintenance Trust Fund account are shown in the 
        Construction account;
  --National Shoreline Management Study and Interagency and 
        International Support activities are not consolidated 
        within the Coordination with Other Water Resource 
        Agencies remaining item in Investigations;
  --Disposition studies will continue to be funded under the 
        remaining line item Disposition of Completed Projects 
        in the Investigations account;
  --Tribal Partnership projects will continue to be funded 
        under the Tribal Partnership Program remaining line 
        item in the Investigations account; and
  --Inspection of Completed Works, Project Condition Surveys, 
        and Scheduling of Reservoir Operations will continue to 
        be funded under States instead of consolidated into a 
        national program as requested in the Operation and 
        Maintenance account.
    Additionally, the recommendation includes the Poplar 
Island, Maryland beneficial use of dredged material project 
within the Environmental Restoration business line as in 
previous years.
    If the Corps proposes budget structure changes in future 
fiscal years, the proposal shall be accompanied by a display of 
the funding request in the traditional budget structure.

                         DEEP DRAFT NAVIGATION

    The budget request this year fails to adequately fund our 
nation's harbors. The Committee is disappointed the fiscal year 
2020 budget request only proposes to spend $965,000,000 for 
Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund [HMTF]-related activities, which 
is $631,500,000 below the spending target of $1,596,500,000 
established by WRRDA, as amended. For fiscal year 2020, the 
Committee recommends an estimated $1,670,000,000 for HMTF-
related activities, which exceeds the WRRDA spending target.

                        INLAND WATERWAYS SYSTEM

    The Committee notes that the budget request only proposed 
to spend $55,500,000 of the estimated $105,000,000 deposits for 
fiscal year 2020 into the Inland Waterways Trust Fund [IWTF]. 
This would leave an estimated $49,500,000 of fiscal year 2020 
deposits unspent. By only proposing to fund one of the four 
ongoing construction projects that were funded last year, the 
budget request disregards the existing Capital Investment 
Strategy and the advice and recommendations of industry experts 
and professional engineers.
    The Committee rejects the budget request's proposal to 
reform inland waterways financing by increasing the amount paid 
by commercial navigation users of inland waterways, 
particularly when the administration fails to make full use of 
the fees already collected for this purpose.
    The Committee understands the fiscal year 2020 capability 
for ongoing IWTF cost-shared construction projects is 
$307,000,000. Therefore, the Committee recommends 
appropriations making use of all estimated revenues from the 
IWTF for these ongoing projects.
    Any report prepared pursuant to section 2002(d) of WRRDA 
will need to be reviewed by Congress prior to the Corps 
incorporating any part of the report into funding decisions. 
Therefore, when allocating the additional funding recommended 
for projects cost-shared with the IWTF, the Corps shall 
continue to use, as appropriate, the Inland and Intracoastal 
Waterways Twenty-Year Capital Investment Strategy dated March 
2016, as the applicable 20-year plan. The Committee considers 
the 20-year Capital Investment Strategy a planning document and 
therefore not subject to administration budget metrics.

                           ADDITIONAL FUNDING

    The Committee recommends funding above the budget request 
for Investigations, Construction, Operation and Maintenance, 
Mississippi River and Tributaries, Flood Control and Coastal 
Emergencies, and Expenses. This funding is for additional work 
(including new starts) that either was not included in the 
budget request or was inadequately budgeted. A study or project 
may not be excluded from evaluation for additional funding due 
to its inconsistency with administration policy. None of the 
funds may be used for any item for which the Committee has 
specifically denied funding.
    The administration is reminded these funds are in addition 
to its budget request, and administration budget metrics shall 
not be a reason to disqualify a study or project from being 
funded. The focus of the allocation process shall favor the 
obligation, rather than the expenditure, of funds for work in 
fiscal year 2020.
    Funding associated with each category may be allocated to 
any eligible study or project, as appropriate, within that 
category; funding associated with each subcategory may be 
allocated only to eligible studies or projects, as appropriate, 
within that subcategory.
    Work Plan.--Not later than 60 days after the date of 
enactment of this act, the Corps shall provide to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress a work 
plan consistent with the following general guidance, as well as 
the specific direction the Committee provides within each 
account: (1) a detailed description of the rating system(s) 
developed and used to evaluate studies and projects; (2) 
delineation of how these funds are to be allocated; (3) a 
summary of the work to be accomplished with each allocation, 
including phase of work and the study or project's remaining 
cost to complete (excluding Operation and Maintenance); and (4) 
a list of all studies and projects that were considered 
eligible for funding but did not receive funding, including an 
explanation of whether the study or project could have used 
funds in fiscal year 2020 and the specific reasons each study 
or project was considered less competitive for an allocation of 
funds.
    The Committee urges the Corps within its Flood and Coastal 
Storm Damage Reduction mission to strive for a balance between 
inland and coastal projects.
    New Starts.--The recommendation includes six new study 
starts and six new construction starts to be distributed across 
the authorized mission areas of the Corps. Of the new starts in 
Investigations, two shall be for flood and storm damage 
reduction studies, one shall be for an environmental 
restoration study, one shall be for a Small, Remote, or 
Subsistence Harbor navigation study, and two shall be for other 
authorized purposes. Of the new study starts for other 
authorized purposes, one shall be for a multi-purpose watershed 
study to assess coastal resiliency. Of the new construction 
starts, two shall be for navigation projects, two shall be for 
environmental restoration projects, and two shall be for a 
navigation, flood and storm damage reduction, environmental 
restoration, or multi-purpose project.
    The Corps is directed to propose a single group of new 
starts as a part of the work plan. The Corps may not change or 
substitute the new starts selected once the work plan has been 
provided to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress. As all new starts are to be chosen by the Corps, all 
shall be considered of equal importance, and the expectation is 
that future budget submissions will include appropriate funding 
for all new starts selected. The initiation of construction of 
an individually authorized project funded within a programmatic 
line item may not require a new start designation provided that 
some amount of construction funding under such programmatic 
line item was appropriated and expended during the previous 
fiscal year. A study is not completed until preconstruction 
engineering and design [PED] is completed. When evaluating 
proposals for new feasibility studies, the Corps is encouraged 
to give priority to those studies with executed Feasibility 
Cost Share Agreements and a sponsor with the ability to provide 
any necessary cost share for the study phase. The Corps is 
encouraged to support opportunities to restore critical habitat 
and enhance the Nation's economic development, job growth, and 
international competitiveness.
    The following shall not require a new start or new 
investment decision and shall be considered ongoing work:
  --When moving from feasibility to PED;
  --To initiate work on a separable element of a project when 
        construction of one or more separable elements of that 
        project was initiated previously;
  --Any authorized environmental infrastructure project;
  --Study or construction activities related to individual 
        projects authorized under section 1037 of WRRDA;
  --Work undertaken to correct a design deficiency on an 
        existing Federal project; and
  --Projects that have previously received construction funding 
        for authorized work.

                               ASIAN CARP

    The Committee acknowledges that the Corps completed the 
Report of the Chief of Engineers for the Great Lakes--
Mississippi River Interbasin Study--Brandon Road Recommended 
Plan in fiscal year 2019. As the Corps prioritizes projects, it 
shall consider critical projects to prevent the spread of 
invasive species. The Corps is reminded that this critical 
project is eligible to compete for additional funding within 
the Investigations account in order to initiate PED. The Corps 
is directed to provide quarterly updates to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on the progress and 
status of efforts to prevent the further spread of Asian carp, 
including the Brandon Road Recommended Plan, the location and 
density of carp populations, the use of emergency procedures 
previously authorized by the Congress, and the development, 
consideration, and implementation of new technological and 
structural countermeasures.
    The Committee is disappointed that the administration chose 
to cut Corps funding for the important inter-agency 
collaborative work to address Asian carp. The Corps shall 
continue to collaborate at levels commensurate with previous 
years with the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife 
Service, the State of Illinois, and members of the Asian Carp 
Regional Coordinating Committee, including identifying 
navigation protocols that would be beneficial or effective in 
reducing the risk of vessels inadvertently carrying aquatic 
invasive species, including Asian carp, through the Brandon 
Road Lock and Dam in Joliet, Illinois. Any findings of such an 
evaluation shall be included in the quarterly briefings to the 
Committees. The Corps is further directed to implement 
navigation protocols shown to be effective at reducing the risk 
of entrainment without jeopardizing the safety of vessels and 
crews. The Corps and other Federal and State agencies are 
conducting ongoing research on potential solutions. The Corps 
shall brief the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress on such navigation protocols and potential solutions 
within 30 days of enactment of this act.

                       ADVANCED FUNDS AGREEMENTS

    Under the advanced funds authority, the Corps is authorized 
to accept, from a State or political subdivision thereof, all 
funds covering both the Federal and non-Federal share of total 
project costs required to construct an authorized water 
resources development project or separable element thereof. 
Based on the non-Federal sponsor's commitment to provide all 
funds required to construct a project, or separable element 
thereof, the Corps may undertake construction of the project 
prior to a new start determination related to Federal funding 
for the project. In light of a non-Federal sponsor's commitment 
to provide all funding required for construction of the 
project, or separable element thereof, the Committee directs 
that Federal funds should not be provided for such 
construction. Instead, for such projects, any Federal funding 
may be provided only after completion of construction, as 
repayment of the Federal share of such construction, from 
funding provided for reimbursements or repayments, and would be 
subject to a new start designation. The Committee does not 
intend that this direction apply to any project with an 
advanced funds project partnership agreement that is currently 
under construction.

                 REGIONAL DREDGE DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM

    Significant--and occasionally even historic--storm events 
continue to occur across the nation, impacting critical Federal 
commercial navigation projects throughout the United States. 
Those impacts have been particularly acute across the Gulf 
Coast region as significant and prolonged shoaling patterns 
resulting from these recurring storm events continue to degrade 
Federal navigation channel conditions and adversely impact 
commercial deep draft navigation. The goal of the Regional 
Demonstration Program is to minimize disruption to the delivery 
of the dredging mission, and of the vital cargo which depends 
on execution of this mission across the Nation, as a result of 
the significant shoaling in the Gulf region. The combination of 
extensive additional shoaling from recurring storm events on 
top of significant routine annual dredging demands have 
resulted in high utilization rates for U.S. hopper dredging 
assets in recent years, including both industry and Corps 
dredges.
    High hopper dredge utilization rates have resulted in 
limited dredge availability for nationally significant dredging 
projects in recent years, in some cases critically impacting 
the acquisition process, particularly in the case of the 
Southwest Pass of the Mississippi River Baton Rouge to Gulf 
project. Corps dredging operations are typically planned, 
executed, and funded on a project-by-project basis, in an 
incremental fashion, on an annual cycle. To respond more 
effectively to critical national dredging requirements 
resulting from these significant recurring storm events, in 
combination with routine annual dredging demands, the Corps 
shall execute a multi-year dredging demonstration program 
within the Central Gulf Coast Region.
    Key features of the program will explore innovative ways of 
executing dredging in a logical, sequenced manner, 
unconstrained by more traditional project-specific, account-
specific, or single year restrictions. The demonstration 
program will leverage multi-year funding and will propose to 
test new approaches and concepts for constructing and 
maintaining deep draft harbors and waterways in a more flexible 
and efficient manner. The program will also seek efficiencies 
and cost savings by evaluating the region as a system in order 
to properly determine when combining work across multiple deep 
draft commercial navigation projects, across years, or across 
Construction and Operations & Maintenance [O&M] accounts is 
appropriate.
    Considering the increasingly common recurrence of annual 
requirements for emergency dredging at the Southwest Pass, as 
well as the uncertainty that this response places on other 
dredging projects being executed by the U.S. hopper fleet 
across the entire Gulf Coast and Eastern seaboard, the Corps 
shall establish such a regional program, focused on the central 
Gulf Coast. By including the Mississippi River Baton Rouge to 
Gulf (Southwest Pass) and other nearby Gulf Coast commercial 
navigation projects, goals of the program will include being 
more responsive to dredging demands within the region, while 
minimizing disruption to critical construction and maintenance 
dredging requirements enterprise wide.
    To demonstrate the described multi-year efficiencies, the 
Committee recommends $525,000,000 in a Regional Dredge 
Demonstration Program funding pot in the Construction account 
to be used for deep draft navigation projects in the Gulf of 
Mexico, between Louisiana and Florida. Further, additional 
funding has been recommended in the O&M account to support the 
Gulf of Mexico demonstration projects.
    Within 45 days of enactment of this act, the Corps shall 
brief the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress on the Corps' plan to implement the demonstration 
program, including which projects will be included. The Corps 
shall provide quarterly briefings to Congress on the status of 
the demonstration program including regular updates on the 
lessons learned. Following completion of the Gulf demonstration 
program, or no later than 6 months after completion of the last 
demonstration project contract, the Corps shall submit a report 
to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress 
documenting the critical knowledge and experience gained during 
this program. The report shall include the Corps' evaluation of 
the effectiveness of the demonstration program. The following 
metrics, and other appropriate metrics identified by the Corps, 
will be used to evaluate the success of the program during the 
execution period:
  --Improved project schedules/faster construction execution at 
        the demonstration projects;
  --Fewer disruptions to other projects across the enterprise 
        due to emergencies at the Southwest Pass (pulling 
        dredges off projects);
  --Fewer or no bid busts (bid higher than the Independent 
        Government Estimate by 25%) for the demonstration 
        projects;
  --Reduced cost per cubic yard at the demonstration projects 
        and/or across the enterprise for hopper dredge 
        contracts;
  --Efficiency of contract award process at the demonstration 
        projects; and
  --Fewer ``no bid'' responses at Mississippi River Baton Rouge 
        to Gulf hopper dredge contracts.

                        UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEMS

    The Committee reminds the Corps that a report was required 
in fiscal year 2019 regarding unmanned aerial systems [UAS]. 
The Corps is directed to expedite completion of this required 
report and within 30 days of enactment of this act, brief the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on its 
findings and subsequent actions, as they relate to foreign-made 
UAS.

                             REPROGRAMMING

    The Committee is retaining the reprogramming legislation 
provided in the Energy and Water Development and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019.

                   CONGRESSIONALLY DIRECTED SPENDING

    The Committee did not accept or include congressionally 
directed spending, as defined in section 5(a) of rule XLIV of 
the Standing Rules of the Senate. However, the Committee has 
recommended additional programmatic funds for Investigations, 
Construction, Operation and Maintenance, Mississippi River and 
Tributaries, Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies, and 
Expenses to address deficiencies in the budget request. In some 
cases, these additional funds have been included within defined 
categories, as in prior years, and are described in more detail 
in their respective sections below.

                         REPORTING REQUIREMENT

    The Corps shall provide a monthly report to the Committees 
on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress, which includes 
the total budget authority and unobligated balances by year for 
each program, project, or activity, including any prior year 
appropriations.
    The Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) shall 
provide a monthly report to the Committees on Appropriations of 
both Houses of Congress, which includes the total budget 
authority and unobligated balances by year for each activity 
funded in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army 
(Civil Works) account, including any prior year appropriations.

Appropriations, 2019....................................    $125,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................      77,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     154,880,000

    The Committee recommends $154,880,000 for Investigations, 
an increase of $77,880,000 above the budget request. The 
Committee's recommendation allows the Corps to begin six new 
feasibility study starts.

                              INTRODUCTION

    Funding in this account is used to develop feasibility 
studies and conduct PED to address the Nation's water 
infrastructure needs, in support of project authorization. The 
Committee recognizes that the budget request does not provide 
adequate funding for Investigations, and specifically PED 
funding, to allow many of America's most important waterways to 
move efficiently from planning to construction. The Committee, 
therefore, recommends additional funding to be used to 
seamlessly continue feasibility studies into the PED study 
phase.

                               NEW STARTS

    The Corps is directed to designate new starts in accordance 
with the direction in the front matter under the heading 
``Additional Funding''.

Funded in remaining items.
Funded under projects listed under States.

    Bird Drive Basin Conveyance, Seepage Collection, and 
Recharge.--The Committee acknowledges the unique opportunity 
for Miami-Dade County to assist in land purchases and swaps to 
protect a vital project footprint to implement the Bird Drive 
Basin Conveyance, Seepage Collection, and Recharge concept and 
achieve the goals of the original Comprehensive Everglades 
Restoration Plan [CERP] Bird Drive Recharge Area project. The 
Committee encourages the Corps to work with the Department of 
the Interior and the South Florida Water Management District to 
quickly identify a consensus project footprint between SW 8th 
Street and the C-1W Canal to the south, immediately east of 
Krome Avenue, to enable Miami-Dade County and the Miami-Dade 
Expressway Authority [MDX], or any successor organization, to 
begin necessary land acquisitions in support of the creation of 
a West Kendall Everglades Buffer and progress towards 
completing an important element of the CERP.
    Biscayne Bay Coastal Wetlands Project.--The Committee 
supports the administration's budget request to fund completion 
of Phase I and begin planning for Phase II for this vital 
project to protect drinking water supplies in eastern Miami-
Dade County from saltwater intrusion and to enhance the coastal 
and marine ecology of Biscayne Bay and the offshore coral reef 
system. The Committee notes support from Miami-Dade County and 
the South Florida Water Management District to incorporate 
highly treated, reclaimed wastewater as an additional source of 
freshwater to assist the rehydration of these coastal wetlands. 
The Committee encourages the Corps to consider the 
incorporation of this potential source of freshwater into 
further study, design, and construction of the project and to 
evaluate the potential to use additional volumes of reclaimed 
wastewater to restore freshwater artesian springs within the 
Bay through underground injection to the shallow, underlying 
aquifer.
    Bubbly Creek.--The Committee encourages the Corps to 
continue negotiations with the Environmental Protection Agency 
and the Department of Justice, on remaining liability concerns 
to reach an expedited resolution that will allow the project to 
move forward.
    Buckhorn Lake.--The Committee supports efforts to optimize 
regional economic benefits and enhanced downstream recreation 
opportunities at Buckhorn Lake. The Committee understands the 
Corps adjusted the drawdown schedule in 2014 allowing a pool 
elevation conducive to an extended fall recreation season, but 
to adjust the drawdown schedule any further would require the 
Corps to undertake a feasibility-level effort to ensure the 
lake's authorized purposes are adequately balanced. The 
Committee strongly supports these activities and reminds the 
Corps that efforts necessary to undertake this detailed 
analysis are eligible for additional funding recommended in 
this account.
    Coastal Field Data Collection.--The Committee recommends an 
additional $1,500,000 to facilitate data collection and 
research on the impact of extreme storms in coastal regions. 
The Corps is encouraged to develop and test storm-resilient 
observation capabilities that will allow exploration of the 
processes driving storm impacts and the resultant coastal 
erosion.
    Hartford and East Hartford, Connecticut Levee Systems.--The 
Committee recognizes the need and urgency to address the 
serious deficiencies of the Hartford and East Hartford, 
Connecticut levee systems. The Committee also recognizes that 
both studies require new starts.
    Kanawha River Basin Study.--Section 1207, of the Water 
Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act of 2016 [WIIN], 
allows the Secretary to conduct studies to determine the 
feasibility of implementing projects for flood risk management, 
ecosystem restoration, navigation, water supply, recreation, 
and other water resource related purposes within the Kanawha 
River Basin in West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina. 
Within the scope of the study, the Committee also encourages 
the Corps to give consideration of a lake in economically 
distressed areas for the purpose of flood mitigation, 
hydroelectricity generation, and recreation.
    McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System [MKARNS].--
MKARNS is an established Marine Highway for waterborne 
commerce, relieving our Nation's highways and bridges from 
additional congestion and wear and tear. MKARNS supports 
economic activity across a 12-State region, moving 10.9 million 
tons of commerce worth $3,500,000,000 annually. MKARNS is a 
vital corridor for agriculture commerce (soybeans and wheat) 
from the Gulf Coast to the Mid-West. Farmers and ranchers rely 
on its availability year round to move crops to markets in all 
seasons and facilitate the movement of fertilizer domestically 
to prepare for the growing season each year.
    MKARNS needs to be deepened with a consistent 12-foot 
navigation channel to provide tow drafts that are more 
compatible with navigation on the Mississippi River. The 
current disparity results in less efficient barge operations 
and higher transportation costs. The Committee encourages the 
Corps to provide funds for non-structural activities, such as 
channel deepening, with low annual funding needs in years where 
appropriated funds for IWTF cost shared projects are sufficient 
to accommodate such projects without impacting ongoing 
construction projects. When updating the Capital Investment 
Strategy pursuant to section 2002(d) of WRRDA, the Corps is 
encouraged to consider how smaller non-structural requirements 
can be addressed while continuing to prioritize ongoing 
construction projects.
    Natural Infrastructure Options.--The Committee directs the 
Corps to engage with State and local government and non-profit 
organizations, where appropriate, on projects in diverse 
geographic areas to evaluate the effectiveness of a variety of 
natural infrastructure options, such as shellfish reef and 
natural vegetation to promote resiliency and reduce damage from 
coastal erosion, storm surge, and flooding. Such features 
should be incorporated into projects during the project 
formulation phase, where appropriate and effective.
    Planning Assistance to States.--The Committee is concerned 
the administration is limiting the use of this program to only 
those activities related to flood risk management. The 
administration is reminded that this program encompasses many 
types of studies and technical assistance dealing with a number 
of water resource issues, including but not limited to, 
sediment management, State water planning, water distribution, 
and water supply evaluations.
    Puget Sound Nearshore Study.--The Committee encourages the 
Corps to proceed with the tiered implementation strategy using 
all existing authorities as outlined in the Puget Sound 
Nearshore Ecosystem Restoration Project Feasibility Study, 
Completion Strategy Guidance dated June 2015. The Corps is 
further directed to recognize the Puget Sound Nearshore Study 
as the feasibility component for the purposes of section 544 of 
the Water Resources Development Act of 2000. The Committee 
notes that WIIN authorized construction of the Puget Sound 
Nearshore Ecosystem Restoration Project, and reminds the Corps 
that no new start, new investment decision, or new phase 
decision shall be required to move this project from 
feasibility to PED.
    Research and Development.--The Committee recommends 
additional funding for increasing collaboration research 
partnerships to advance the capability to evaluate methods for 
restoring ecosystem restoration conservation.
    Additional funding has been recommended to continue 
research using geophysical computational modeling and to use 
those processes to create simulations of changing environmental 
processes, sea level rise, and habitat degradation.
    The Corps is reminded that activities related to innovative 
materials, as required under section 1208 of the America's 
Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 [AWIA], can be funded under 
this line item.
    Research and Development, Oyster Restoration for Navigation 
Channel and Shoreline Stabilization.--The Committee recognizes 
the importance of sustainable oyster reefs and the potential 
role these hardened structures could play in the stability of 
navigation channels and coastal infrastructure. Recent 
restoration efforts have not achieved the intended success for 
U.S. oyster populations, and the identification of effective 
restoration strategies remains a critical gap. The Corps is 
encouraged to develop partnerships with research universities 
to leverage expertise and enhance the Engineer Research and 
Development Center's mission. Not later than 120 days after 
enactment of this act, the Corps shall brief the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on how the Corps can 
address research gaps by leveraging internal and external 
expertise.
    Scientific and Technical Information Centers.--The 
Committee is aware of concerns that the Corps is not strictly 
adhering to 2 CFR 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, 
Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, in 
all of the grants and cooperative agreements that it executes 
with institutions of higher education. The concerns also apply 
to the Corps' utilization of the Cooperative Ecosystem Unit 
network. The Committee acknowledges that the Corps has 
developed new standard operating procedures for implementation 
of its grants and cooperative agreements and supports these 
actions.
    Selma, Alabama.--The Committee supports the current 
feasibility flood and storm damage reduction study being 
conducted for Selma, Alabama. The Committee encourages the 
Corps to consider the value of the landmark threatened by 
shoreline erosion as part of the benefits to the Nation.
    South Atlantic Coastal Study.--The Committee acknowledges 
the importance of engaging State, local, and tribal officials 
throughout the study process to ensure the methodology, focus, 
and results are implementable by States and communities. The 
Corps shall consult with industry groups, academia, and non-
governmental organizations who can provide specialized 
expertise and coordinate appropriate attention and interest in 
the study's design and implementation from relevant 
stakeholders, including coastal State agencies, local 
officials, and private coastal scientists and engineers. The 
Committee encourages the Corps to ensure due consideration of 
near-shore marine habitat with potential impacts of coastal 
flooding and inundation, including coral reefs, oyster reefs, 
mangrove forests, and saltwater marsh, within the scope of this 
comprehensive study. To enhance the value and reach of this 
vital planning effort, the Committee strongly urges the Corps, 
where possible, to ensure the full interoperability of modeling 
work and data analysis conducted for the South Atlantic Coastal 
Study and other inland flood control and aquatic ecosystem 
restoration projects bordering the study area, including the 
Central & Southern Florida Project and South Florida Ecosystem 
Restoration.
    Study of Water Resources Development Projects by Non-
Federal Interests.--Section 1126 of WIIN allows the Secretary, 
at the request of a non-Federal interest, to provide technical 
assistance relating to any aspect of a feasibility study if the 
non-Federal interest contracts with the Secretary to pay all 
costs of providing such technical assistance. The Committee has 
heard concerns that the Corps is not providing technical 
assistance consistent with the spirit of this provision and 
directs the Corps to better define and standardize technical 
assistance provided to non-Federal project interests 
undertaking feasibility studies pursuant to section 203 of the 
Water Resources Development Act of 1986, as amended.
    Upper Des Plaines River and Tributaries Project.--The 
Committee is aware of local concerns about the impact the 
proposed Foxconn project in Wisconsin may have on flooding in 
communities downriver in Illinois surrounding the Des Plaines 
River. As the Corps reevaluates the project, the Committee 
encourages the Corps to take the impacts of the proposed 
project into consideration.
    Upper Mississippi River-Illinois Waterway System.--The 
Committee recognizes the importance of advancing the Navigation 
and Ecosystem Sustainability Program [NESP] for the Upper 
Mississippi region and the nation's economy and notes that 
Congress has already appropriated more than $62,000,000 in PED 
funding for this program. The Committee directs the Corps to 
expeditiously complete the Economic Reevaluation Report to move 
forward with PED and advance the projects authorized in Title 
VIII of the Water Resources and Development Act of 2007.
    Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program [UMRR].--The 
Committee encourages the Corps to continue working with the 
local community in Quincy, Illinois for a potential 
environmental restoration project in Quincy Bay through the 
Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program.
    Upper Missouri River Basin Flood and Drought Monitoring.--
Additional funding above the budget is recommended in the 
Stream Gaging remaining line item for soil moisture and 
snowpack monitoring.
    Water Quality and Salinity Impacts on Oyster Reefs.--The 
Committee encourages the Corps, when conducting or reviewing 
environmental assessments or environmental impact statements 
for navigation or coastal restoration projects in areas where 
oyster reefs exist, to consider water quality and salinity 
impacts on those reefs and, when appropriate, to mitigate any 
negative impacts.
    Willamette River.--The Committee directs the Corps to 
prioritize environmental restoration for urban area floodplain 
and aquatic habitat through cost effective means, such as fish 
passage and culvert replacement, for all Columbia River and 
Willamette River salmon and steelhead listed under the 
Endangered Species Act [ESA] and for Pacific Lamprey, which is 
a culturally, ecologically important species and treaty 
reserved resource to the Pacific Northwest Tribal Nations.
    Additional Funding.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$77,880,000 in additional funds above the budget request for 
Investigations. From these additional funds, the Corps shall 
begin six new feasibility studies. The Corps is directed to 
allocate these additional funds in accordance with the 
direction in the front matter under the heading ``Additional 
Funding''. Of the additional funds recommended, the Corps shall 
allocate not less than $4,500,000 for PED of inland waterway 
lock and dam navigation and ecosystem restoration projects 
authorized by title VIII of the Water Resources Development Act 
of 2007, including equitable consideration of ecosystem 
restoration components. Of the additional funding recommended 
in this account, $905,000 is for the PED phase of beach 
renourishment projects that have been authorized by Congress 
for construction. Of the additional funding recommended for 
environmental restoration or compliance and other authorized 
project purposes, the Corps shall allocate not less than 
$2,000,000 for ecosystem restoration projects that are 
modifications to flood protection project authorizations to 
address degraded conditions due to prior flood protection work. 
Of the additional funding recommended in this account, the 
Corps shall allocate not less than $200,000 to PED activities 
for ecosystem restoration projects that also provide additional 
flood storage capacity by restoring the natural habitat. The 
Corps is reminded that the Great Lakes--Mississippi River 
Interbasin Study--Brandon Road is eligible to compete for 
additional funding within the Investigations account in order 
to initiate PED. Additionally, the Corps shall comply with the 
following direction in allocating funds recommended for 
Investigations:
  --When evaluating ongoing studies for funding, the Corps 
        shall consider completing or accelerating ongoing 
        studies or initiating new studies that will enhance the 
        Nation's economic development, job growth, and 
        international competitiveness; are for projects located 
        in areas that have suffered recent natural disasters; 
        are for projects that protect life and property; or are 
        for projects to address legal requirements;
  --The Corps shall include appropriate requests for funding in 
        future budget submissions for PED and new feasibility 
        studies initiated in fiscal year 2020. The Corps shall 
        prepare the budget to reflect study completions, 
        defined as completion of PED.

*Includes funds requested in other accounts.

    Alternative Delivery.--The Committee is disappointed the 
administration's fiscal year 2020 budget did not support the 
Corps' Water Infrastructure Finance Innovation Act program or 
Public-Private Partnership [P3] efforts. Instead of proposing 
funds for ongoing efforts, the administration proposed a new 
funding pot, ``Innovative Funding Partnerships'', where 
eligibility for funding is conditioned on non-Federal interests 
providing more than their statutory cost share requirement. 
Consistent with previous Congressional intent, the Committee 
does not support initiatives that disadvantage rural 
communities and other non-Federal interests who lack the 
financial means to pay more to get preferential priority in 
funding.
    The Committee does support alternative delivery approaches 
such as P3s and split delivery methods that leverage public and 
private resources to reduce costs and risk to populations by 
delivering infrastructure sooner. The use of P3s and split 
delivery methods demonstrates a viable strategy to help address 
the Corps' backlog of projects while reducing scheduling and 
funding risk to the Federal Government. Alternative Delivery 
funding is recommended in this account under the new funding 
line ``Alternative Delivery'' for ongoing and planned P3s and 
projects that utilize a split-delivery approach. The Committee 
also encourages the Corps to continue the rulemaking process 
for WIFIA.
    Aquatic Plant Control Program.--Of the funding recommended 
for the Aquatic Plant Control Program: $1,000,000 shall be for 
activities for monitoring, surveys, and control of flowering 
rush; $5,000,000 shall be for nationwide research and 
development to address invasive aquatic plants, within which 
the Corps is encouraged to support cost-shared aquatic plant 
management programs; $5,000,000 shall be for watercraft 
inspection stations and rapid response, as authorized by 
section 1039 of WRRDA, as amended; and $1,000,000 shall be for 
related monitoring.
    Barrow Alaska Coastal Erosion.--The North Slope Borough 
experiences frequent flooding and erosion resulting from 
decreased ice cover and severe coastal storms. The flooding and 
erosion experienced in Barrow, Alaska presents significant 
risks to life and safety, threatens the community's only 
drinking water source, and risks from environmental 
contamination. The Committee understands the Corps is 
finalizing the Director's Report for Barrow under section 116 
of Public Law 111-85, which authorizes the Secretary to carry 
out structural and non-structural projects for storm damage 
prevention and reduction, coastal erosion, and ice and glacial 
damage in Alaska. The Committee supports these efforts and 
directs the Corps to complete the report and expeditiously 
proceed to PED. The Corps is reminded this project is eligible 
to receive additional funds recommended in this account and is 
urged to include funding in future budget submissions.
    Beneficial Use of Dredged Material Pilot Program.--The 
Committee is pleased to see the Corps' selection of 10 pilot 
projects under section 1122 of WIIN to carry out beneficial use 
of dredged sediment, including the selection of the Resilient 
San Francisco Bay Pilot Project. The Committee's recommendation 
provides additional funds within ``Beneficial Use of Dredged 
Material Pilot Program'' to pursue the next phase for the 
selected projects.
    Camp Ellis Beach, Saco, Maine.--The Committee is concerned 
by the continued delay in implementing a solution at Camp Ellis 
Beach in Saco, Maine. To address continued erosion which has 
destroyed 37 homes to date, the Committee is aware that the 
Corps' initial study recommended a shore damage mitigation 
project consisting of a 750-foot-long spur jetty, and placement 
of about 360,000 cubic yards of beach fill along the beach. The 
Committee is further aware that the Corps is working with the 
city on detailing a path ahead on the project. Accordingly, the 
Committee directs the Secretary to continue collaborative 
efforts to address the continued erosion.
    Cano Martin Pena Ecosystem Restoration Project, San Juan, 
Puerto Rico.--The Committee recognizes the importance of the 
Cano Martin Pena Ecosystem Restoration Project to residents' 
health and well-being, the local economy and environment, and 
the reduction of coastal flood and storm damage risk. The 
Committee understands that the PED phase of the project is on 
track to conclude by the end of fiscal year 2019. The Committee 
encourages the Corps to include appropriate funding in future 
budget requests and to coordinate closely with non-Federal 
interests in Puerto Rico to establish a project partnership 
agreement to continue to advance this critical project for 
environmental restoration, economic revitalization, and flood 
protection in a timely manner.
    Central Everglades Planning Project.--The Committee 
recognizes the importance of restoring America's Everglades, 
and commends the administration's budget request expediting PED 
and construction on the Central Everglades Planning Project to 
complement the initiative of the South Florida Water Management 
District in jumpstarting elements of PPA South, PPA New Water, 
and the Everglades Agricultural Area Storage Reservoir.
    Charleston Harbor, South Carolina.--The Committee supports 
the budget request for the Charleston Harbor Deepening Project 
and understands the requested level will be used to fund the 
project to completion once an amendment to the existing Project 
Partnership Agreement is executed. The Corps shall expedite the 
necessary measures identified in the budget request to fully 
fund, up to the budget request, the remaining construction 
activities.
    Chesapeake Bay Comprehensive Water Resources Restoration 
Plan.--The Committee supports the Corps' Chesapeake Bay 
Comprehensive Water Resources and Restoration Plan.
    Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal Dispersal Barrier, 
Illinois.--Hydrologic separation issues should be fully studied 
by the Corps, vetted by the appropriate congressional 
authorizing committees, and specifically enacted into law. No 
funds recommended in this act may be used for construction of 
hydrologic separation measures.
    Columbia River Fish Mitigation.--The Committee understands 
that the Corps, along with the Bonneville Power Administration, 
have an agreement with affected Tribes to seek funds so that 
identified Pacific Lamprey passage improvements can be 
implemented at Corps-owned dams on the Columbia and Snake 
Rivers. To that end, the Corps is encouraged to pursue funds to 
improve Pacific Lamprey passage.
    CERP--Indian River Lagoon-South.--The Committee recognizes 
the importance of eliminating discharges from Lake Okeechobee 
that help fuel harmful algal blooms [HABs] in the St. Lucie 
River and Indian River Lagoon. The Committee supports the 
administration's budget request to accelerate design work on 
the C-23 and C-24 Reservoirs and Stormwater Treatment Areas 
that, along with continued construction of the C-44 Reservoir, 
will serve as crucial elements of the Indian River Lagoon-South 
project to collect and clean Lake Okeechobee discharges and 
basin runoff before excess nutrients are able to enter the 
fragile lagoon ecosystem.
    Continuing Authorities Program.--The Committee recommends 
$66,000,000 for the Continuing Authorities Program [CAP], an 
increase of $63,000,000 above the budget request. CAP is a 
useful tool for the Corps to undertake small localized projects 
without being encumbered by the lengthy study and authorization 
phases typical of most Corps projects. Within the CAP and to 
the extent already authorized by law, the Corps is encouraged 
to consider projects that enhance coastal and ocean ecosystem 
resiliency. The management of CAP should continue consistent 
with direction provided in previous fiscal years.
    The Committee encourages the Corps to expedite the 
implementation of feasibility studies approved in 2019 under 
section 206 of the Flood Control Act of 1958.
    The Corps shall allow for the advancement of flood control 
projects in combination with ecological benefits using natural 
and nature-based solutions alone, or in combination with built 
infrastructure where appropriate for reliable risk reduction 
during the development of projects under section 205 of CAP.
    Within the section 1135 CAP authority, and to the extent 
already authorized by law, the Committee urges the Corps to 
give priority to projects that restore degraded wetland habitat 
and stream habitat impacted by construction of Corps levees 
with executed feasibility cost share agreements.

    Environmental Infrastructure.--Authorized Environmental 
Infrastructure projects shall not require a new start 
designation. The Committee reminds the Corps that Environmental 
Infrastructure authorities include caps on Federal 
participation, but do not provide a guarantee that the project 
authorization level will be met. Environmental Infrastructure 
projects shall only receive funding if there is a separable 
element that can be funded to completion in a fiscal year 
without the requirement for continued funding in future years. 
The Corps is directed to develop metrics for the selection of 
Environmental Infrastructure projects that receive funds and 
provide a report on such metrics to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress within 180 days of 
enactment of this act.
    Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration Program.--The 
Corps is reminded that the Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem 
Restoration Program is eligible to receive funds recommended in 
this account.
    Howard Hanson Dam.--The Committee is aware that the 
National Marine Fisheries Service [NMFS] has issued a jeopardy 
Biological Opinion [BiOp] determining the impact of ongoing 
operations of Howard Hanson Dam, including the Howard Hanson 
Dam--Additional Water Storage Project, on ESA-listed species 
and that the BiOp requires the completion of a downstream fish 
passage facility by 2030. The Committee encourages the Corps to 
continue consultations with NMFS and begin the next phase of 
implementing the BiOp's findings, and urges the Corps to work 
with resource co-managers to develop long-term measures to 
maintain fish runs past Howard Hanson Dam, while upholding ESA 
and municipal and industrial water supply responsibilities.
    McCook and Thornton Reservoirs, Illinois.--The Committee 
acknowledges that the Project Partnership Agreement between the 
Corps and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of 
Greater Chicago for McCook Reservoir was executed under the 
authority of section 1043 of WRRDA. The agreement transferred 
the funds and the authority to construct the remainder of the 
McCook Reservoir to the non-Federal sponsor, thereby limiting 
the Federal exposure to the transferred amount and shifting the 
responsibility for any cost overruns to the local sponsor. The 
Corps is directed to provide an annual briefing to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on the 
progress of the project and the oversight conducted by the 
Corps.
    Mud Mountain Dam.--The Committee commends the Corps for 
initiating construction to support the October 2014 Mud 
Mountain BiOp and mitigate the impact of the ongoing operation 
of Mud Mountain Dam on species listed under ESA by replacing 
the barrier structure and building a new fish passage facility. 
The Committee encourages the Corps to uphold the agency's ESA 
and Tribal treaty responsibilities and fully implement the BiOp 
requirements.
    Non-Federal Implementation Pilot Program.--Section 1043(b) 
of WRRDA, as amended, authorized the Secretary to establish and 
implement a pilot program to evaluate the cost effectiveness 
and project delivery efficiency of allowing non-Federal 
interests to carry out flood risk management, hurricane and 
storm damage, coastal harbor and channel inland navigation, and 
aquatic ecosystem restoration projects. The Committee is aware 
of two projects that have been identified for implementation 
prior to the authority's expiration on June 10, 2019.
    The administration's fiscal year 2020 budget proposes 
$150,000,000 for construction projects under this authority and 
issued implementation guidance dated June 24, 2019. The 
Committee has several concerns regarding the implementation of 
this authority that are not addressed in the implementation 
guidance. The guidance (1) does not include metrics for 
measuring pilot program success; (2) fails to address the 
selection and implementation of additional projects; (3) fails 
to address the significant risks associated with a non-Federal 
interest undertaking construction of a Federal project, 
including situations where the non-Federal interest fails to 
meet design and quality standards; (4) fails to address 
compliance with all laws and regulations that would apply if 
the Secretary were carrying out the project; and (5) fails to 
address liability in the event a project fails. Due to these 
concerns, the Corps shall notify the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress upon receiving any 
proposal from a non-Federal interest requesting to utilize the 
section 1043 authority. The Corps shall not negotiate or enter 
into a project partnership agreement to transfer funds to a 
non-Federal interest utilizing the 1043(b) authority unless 
approval is received from the Committee on Appropriations of 
both Houses of Congress. None of the funds recommended in this 
act shall be used under this authority for a project where 
construction has been started but not completed. The Corps 
shall brief the Committees not later than 45 days after 
enactment of this act on activities carried out under the 
section 1043 pilot program, including the Corps' implementation 
guidance and any existing or potential agreements.
    Oyster Restoration.--The Committee supports Gulf Coast 
oyster restoration efforts and the Chesapeake Bay Oyster 
Restoration Program and encourages the Corps to provide 
sufficient funding in future budget submissions or the fiscal 
year 2020 work plan.
    Prioritization of Projects in Drought-Stricken Areas.--The 
Committee urges the Corps to prioritize any authorized projects 
that would alleviate water supply issues in areas that have 
been afflicted by severe droughts in the last three fiscal 
years, to include projects focused on the treatment of brackish 
water.
    Regional Dredge Demonstration Program.--The Committee 
recognizes the limitations that incremental funding provided on 
an annual basis places on the Corps' ability to effectively and 
efficiently execute port deepening projects that are imperative 
for maintaining global competitiveness. The impacts are further 
exacerbated by competing dredging demands, including emergency 
work to address extensive shoaling from recurring storm events, 
routine annual maintenance, and shore protection work.
    The uncertainty of receiving efficient funding has resulted 
in higher project costs and significant schedule delays. In 
recent years, these impacts are reflected in considerably 
higher than estimated bid prices and in some cases a lack of 
bid responses altogether. Despite industry bringing new and 
more efficient dredges online to meet increasing demands, the 
traditional approach to funding and executing dredge work 
continues to contribute the greatest amount of uncertainty 
enterprise-wide.
    In response to these challenges, the Corps has proposed an 
innovative approach to execute dredging in a logical, sequenced 
manner that leverages multi-year funding and is unconstrained 
by traditional project-specific, account-specific, or single 
year restrictions. To demonstrate these efficiencies, the 
Committee recommends $525,000,000 in this account for deep 
draft navigation projects in the Gulf of Mexico, between 
Louisiana and Florida in accordance with the direction in the 
front matter under the heading ``Regional Dredge Demonstration 
Program''.
    Rehabilitation of Corps Constructed Dams.--The Committee 
directs the Corps to undertake recommendations for construction 
resulting from a Risk Assessment or Dam Safety Modification 
Report completed under section 542 of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 2000, as amended, or section 1177 of WIIN, 
as amended, using the funds in this line item.
    South Florida Ecosystem Restoration [SFER].--For fiscal 
year 2020, the Committee directs the Corps to make publicly 
available a comprehensive snapshot of all SFER cost share 
accounting down to the project level and directs the Corps to 
ensure the accuracy of all budget justification sheets that 
inform SFER Integrated Financial Plan documents by September 
30, 2020.
    The Dalles Dam.--Funding was allocated to complete the 
Village Development Plan for the Dalles Tribal housing village 
in fiscal year 2019. The Corps is directed to use this funding 
to move forward expeditiously with completion of this phase of 
the project.
    Urban Flooding.--The Committee encourages the Corps to 
expeditiously complete the urban flooding report authorized by 
Congress in section 1211 of AWIA.
    Waterbury Dam, Vermont.--The Corps is reminded that 
Waterbury Dam is eligible to use previously appropriated funds 
to complete a Risk Assessment and Dam Safety Action 
Classification pursuant to section 542 of the Water Resources 
Development Act of 2000, as amended.
    WRRDA Section 4001, River Basin Commissions.--The Committee 
urges the Secretary to follow through on previous direction 
provided by Congress to financially support the Susquehanna, 
Delaware, and Potomac River Basin Commissions. Congress has 
made clear its intent and expects the Corps to budget 
accordingly.
    Additional Funding.--The Committee recommendation includes 
$1,488,203,000 in additional funds for Construction above the 
budget request. The Corps shall allocate these additional funds 
in accordance with the direction in the front matter under the 
heading ``Additional Funding''. The Corps shall not condition 
these funds, or any funds appropriated in this act, on a non-
Federal interest paying more than their required share in any 
phase of a project. Of the additional funds recommended in this 
account, the Corps shall allocate not less than $20,000,000 for 
the construction of projects that principally address drainage 
in urban areas. Of the additional funds recommended in this 
account for flood and storm damage reduction, navigation, and 
other authorized project purposes (excluding environmental 
infrastructure), the Corps shall allocate not less than 
$35,000,000 to authorized reimbursements for projects with 
executed project partnership agreements and that have completed 
construction or where non-Federal sponsors intend to use the 
funds for additional water resource development activities. Of 
the additional funding recommended under the heading 
``Environmental Restoration or Compliance'', not less than 
$20,000,000 shall be for multistate ecosystem restoration 
programs for which a comprehensive restoration plan is in 
development or has been completed.
    When allocating the additional funding provided in this 
account, the Corps is encouraged to evaluate authorized 
reimbursements in the same manner as if the projects were being 
evaluated for new or ongoing construction and shall consider 
giving priority to the following:
  --Benefits of the funded work to the national economy;
  --Extent to which the work will enhance national, regional, 
        or local economic development;
  --Number of jobs created directly by the funded activity;
  --Ability to obligate the funds allocated within the calendar 
        year, including consideration of the ability of the 
        non-Federal sponsor to provide any required cost share;
  --Ability to complete the project, separable element, or 
        project phase with the funds allocated;
  --Legal requirements, including responsibilities to Tribes;
  --For flood and storm damage reduction projects (including 
        authorized nonstructural measures and periodic beach 
        renourishments): Population, economic activity, or 
        public infrastructure at risk, as appropriate; the 
        severity of risk of flooding or the frequency with 
        which an area has experienced flooding; and 
        preservation of historically significant communities, 
        culture, and heritage;
  --For shore protection projects, projects in areas where 
        there is risk to life and public health and safety, and 
        risk of environmental contamination;
  --For ecosystem restoration projects, projects that restore 
        degraded wetland and stream habitat negatively impacted 
        by the construction of Corps levees;
  --For navigation projects, the number of jobs or level of 
        economic activity to be supported by completion of the 
        project, separable element, or project phase;
  --For projects cost shared with the IWTF, the economic impact 
        on the local, regional, and national economy if the 
        project is not funded, as well as discrete elements of 
        work that can be completed within the funding provided 
        in this line item;
  --For other authorized project purposes and environmental 
        restoration or compliance projects, the beneficial use 
        of dredged material; and
  --For environmental infrastructure, projects in rural 
        communities, projects with greater economic impact, 
        projects in counties or parishes with high poverty 
        rates, projects owed past reimbursements, and projects 
        that provide backup raw water supply in the event of an 
        emergency.
    The Committee recommendation includes the full use of all 
estimated fiscal year 2020 annual revenues in the IWTF as well 
as the sufficient additional IWTF prior year revenues to ensure 
ongoing new construction projects may proceed with an efficient 
funding profile. Funds recommended herein for inland waterways 
shall only be available for ongoing new construction projects, 
which have a fiscal year 2020 estimate of $196,000,000 above 
the administration's budget request. The Corps shall allocate 
all funds recommended in the IWTF Revenues line item along with 
the statutory cost share from funds provided in the Navigation 
line item prior to allocating the remainder of funds in the 
Navigation line item.

*Includes funds requested in other accounts.
Funded in remaining items.

    Lower Mississippi River Main Stem.--The budget request 
proposes to consolidate several activities across multiple 
States into one line item. The Committee does not support this 
change and instead recommends continuing to fund these 
activities as separate line items.
    Additional Funding for Ongoing Work.--When allocating the 
additional funding recommended in this account, the Corps shall 
consider giving priority to completing or accelerating ongoing 
work that will enhance the nation's economic development, job 
growth, and international competitiveness, or to studies or 
projects located in areas that have suffered recent natural 
disasters. The Corps shall use such sums as are necessary to 
carry out remaining unconstructed features of projects 
authorized by law, in response to recent flood disasters. While 
this funding is shown under remaining items, the Corps shall 
use these funds in investigations, construction, and operation 
and maintenance, as applicable.
    When allocating the additional funding recommended in this 
account the Corps shall allocate not less than $30,000,000 for 
additional flood control construction projects outside of the 
Lower Mississippi River Main Stem, of which $15,560,000 shall 
be for those projects with flood control, water quality, and 
sediment reduction benefits. Of the additional funds 
recommended in this account for other authorized project 
purposes, the Corps shall allocate not less than $1,160,000 for 
operation and maintenance of facilities that are educational or 
to continue land management of mitigation features. Of the 
additional funds recommended in this account, the Corps shall 
allocate not less than $3,000,000 for dredging of ports and 
harbors.

*Includes funds requested in other accounts.
Funded in remaining items.
Funded under projects listed under States.

    Harmful Algal Blooms [HABs].--The Committee is concerned 
about the increasing threat to human health and public safety 
from HABs on our Nation's surface waters. As many of these 
surface waters have a nexus with Corps water resource projects, 
the Committee encourages the Corps to work with the appropriate 
Federal, State, and local agencies to attempt, to the extent 
practical, to reduce the conditions that allow HABs to occur. 
When these blooms occur, the committee urges the Corps to work 
with these same agencies, where appropriate, to provide notice 
to the public to minimize threats to public health and safety. 
The Committee recommends additional funds in Aquatic Nuisance 
Control Research to supplement Corps activities to address 
HABs, including research and development into the formation, 
rapid detection, protection methods, and remediation of HABs to 
enhance protection of vital U.S. water resources.
    Calumet Harbor.--The Committee encourages the Corps to take 
greater consideration of the concerns of the local communities 
when considering potential locations for a new Calumet Harbor 
Dredge Material Facility.
    Coastal Inlet Research Program.--The Committee understands 
that communities, infrastructure, commerce, and resources that 
are tied to the coastal nearshore region are all vulnerable to 
damage from extreme coastal events and long-term coastal 
change. Funding in addition to the budget request is 
recommended for the Corps-led multi-university effort to 
identify engineering frameworks to address coastal resilience 
needs, to develop adaptive pathways that lead to coastal 
resilience, that measure the coastal forces that lead to 
infrastructure damage and erosion during extreme storm events, 
and to improve coupling of terrestrial and coastal models. 
Funding in addition to the budget request is also recommended 
for the Corps to continue work with the National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration's National Water Center on 
protecting the Nation's water resources.
    Debris Removal.--The Corps is reminded that debris removal 
activities, including those in urban waterways, are eligible 
for additional funding. The Corps is directed to provide a 
briefing to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress within 90 days of enactment of this act on the 
findings-to-date from the study required under section 1210 of 
the AWIA.
    Donor and Energy Transfer Ports.--The additional funding 
recommended in this account for donor and energy transfer ports 
shall be allocated in accordance with 33 U.S.C. 2238c. The 
Committee notes the Corps issued implementation guidance for 
section 1110 of WIIN, but has not completed the necessary work 
to execute all authorized uses for this funding. The Committee 
directs the Corps to fully execute subsection (c) of 33 U.S.C. 
2238c within 90 days of enactment of this act.
    Regional Dredge Demonstration Program.--Additional funds 
have been recommended in this account to support the 
demonstration program in accordance with the direction in the 
front matter under the heading ``Regional Dredge Demonstration 
Program''.
    Dredging Data and Lock Performance Monitoring System.--The 
Committee is concerned with the interruptions in commerce due 
to flooding and other silting activities and resulting closures 
of navigation, and recommends an additional $2,000,000 to 
support enhanced modeling that can lead to improved operational 
and maintenance scenarios.
    Enhanced Options for Sand Acquisition for Beach 
Renourishment Projects.--The Committee urges the Corps to 
provide States with guidance and recommendations to implement 
cost effective measures and planning for sand management.
    Invasive Mussels.--The Committee recognizes that dreissenid 
mussels, highly invasive species, threaten water delivery 
systems and hydroelectric facilities operated by the Corps. 
Additional funds are recommended in this account to prevent the 
introduction and removal of invasive species like dreissenid 
mussels at Corps-owned reservoirs.
    Isle of Shoals North and Cape Arundel Dredged Material 
Placement Site.--The Cape Arundel Disposal Site in Maine 
selected by the Department of the Army as an alternative 
dredged material disposal site under section 103(b) of the 
Marine Protection Research and Sanctuaries Act of 1972, shall 
remain open until April 15, 2024, until the remaining disposal 
capacity of the site has been utilized, or until final 
designation of an Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site for 
southern Maine under section 102(c) of the Marine Protection 
Research and Sanctuaries Act of 1972, whichever first occurs, 
provided that the site conditions remain suitable for such 
purpose and that the site may not be used for disposal of more 
than 80,000 cubic yards from any single dredging project.
    J. Percy Priest Greenway.--The Committee understands the 
city of Murfreesboro has been working in partnership with the 
Corps since 2007 for the development of a greenway trail that 
provides recreational and wellness opportunities, and an 
alternate form of transportation. The Committee supports 
completion of the J. Percy Priest Greenway trail improvements 
and reminds the Corps that greenway trail improvements are 
eligible to compete for additional funding recommended in this 
account.
    Kennebec River Long-Term Maintenance Dredging.--The 
Committee supports the Memorandum of Agreement signed in 
January 2019 denoting responsibilities between the Department 
of the Army and the Department of the Navy for the regular 
maintenance of the Kennebec River Federal Navigation Channel. 
Maintenance dredging of the Kennebec is essential to the safe 
passage of newly constructed Navy guided missile destroyers to 
the Atlantic Ocean. The Committee directs the Secretary to 
maintain its collaboration with the Department of the Navy to 
ensure regular maintenance dredging of the Kennebec.
    Lake Oahe and Lake Sakakawea.--The Committee is aware of 
the deterioration of recreational facilities around Lake Oahe 
and Lake Sakakawea and urges the Corps to develop, using input 
from local stakeholders, a sustainable long-term plan to 
restore and maintain these facilities.
    Manatee Harbor South Channel.--The Committee understands an 
Integral Determination Report for inclusion of the South 
Channel as part of the Federal authorized project and an 
assumption of maintenance was completed and approved on April 
11, 2019. The Committee also understands the Corps is preparing 
the appropriate agreements to allow for the assumption of 
maintenance dredging of the South Channel and for reimbursement 
to Port Manatee of the Federal share of the construction work 
completed. The Corps is reminded this project is eligible for 
additional funding recommended in this account once the 
appropriate agreement has been executed.
    Monitoring of Completed Navigation Projects--Fisheries.--
The Committee is concerned that a reduction in or elimination 
of navigational lock operations on the Nation's inland 
waterways is having a negative impact on river ecosystems, 
particularly the ability of a number of endangered, threatened, 
and game fish species to migrate through waterways, 
particularly during critical spawning periods. The Committee is 
aware of preliminary research that indicates reduced lock 
operations on certain Corps designated low-use waterways is 
directly impacting migration and that there are effective means 
to mitigate the impacts. The Committee believes maximizing the 
ability of fish to use these locks to move past the dams has 
the potential to restore natural and historic long-distance 
river migrations that may be critical to species survival. In 
fiscal year 2019, the Committee recommended funding to continue 
preliminary research on the impact of reduced lock operations 
on riverine fish.
    The Committee understands the research underway is proving 
valuable and, within available funds for ongoing work, directs 
the Corps to continue this research at no less than the fiscal 
year 2019 level. The goal of the continued funding is to 
support the ongoing research and, where appropriate, expand the 
work to look at ecosystem level impacts and additional 
waterways, lock structures, lock operation methods, and fish 
species that will more fully inform the Corps' operations.
    Monitoring of Completed Navigation Projects--Non-
Destructive Testing.--The Committee supports the Corps' efforts 
to cost-effectively improve the safety, efficiency, and 
reliability of critical and aging infrastructure. The Committee 
understands that the Corps continues to explore non-destructive 
testing methods of inspection that can assist in performing 
this vital mission with increased safety and accuracy and at 
significantly less cost than current methods. The Committee 
recommends $2,000,000 for the Corps to complete an asset 
management plan regarding non-destructive testing methods.
    Monitoring of Completed Navigation Projects--Structural 
Health Monitoring.--Of the funding recommended, $4,000,000 
shall be to support the structural health monitoring program to 
facilitate research to maximize operations, enhance efficiency, 
and protect asset life through catastrophic failure mitigation.
    National (Levee) Flood Inventory.--Funding in addition to 
the budget request is recommended to meet the requirements 
under WRRDA section 3016. Within these funds, the Corps is 
directed to finalize and submit the implementation plan 
required in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, within 
30 days of enactment of this act. The Corps is also directed to 
include in the plan any initiatives required under WRRDA, 
section 3016 that have the potential to be duplicative and 
recommendations of how to streamline these requirements.
    Ready Reserve Fleet.--The Secretary is directed to submit 
to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress 
a report detailing the capacity of the current Corps and Ready 
Reserve Fleets to: (1) prevent or minimize the impact of 
national emergencies or disasters on ports, harbors, and other 
U.S. waterways for navigation; and (2) adequately restore those 
waterways quickly post-disaster, within 120 days of enactment 
of this act.
    Regional Sediment Management.--The Committee recommends 
additional funding in this account for ``Regional Sediment 
Management'' for Corps research and development into enhanced 
forecasting capabilities to implement proactive strategies for 
flood risk management to enhance the resiliency of coastal 
communities and mitigate socioeconomic and environmental 
consequences of extreme coastal hazards.
    Rollinson Channel, North Carolina.--The Committee is aware 
of the continual shoaling issue in Dare County between Hatteras 
and Ocracoke. The shoaling has resulted in a longer route for 
the ferry, leading to increased costs and decreased services. 
The Committee encourages the Corps to continue coordination 
with the other relevant agencies to move forward with a 
solution to the shoaling issue in a timely manner.
    San Rafael Channel, California.--The Committee is aware 
that the last full dredging of the San Rafael Channel was in 
2002. This lack of dredging is becoming a public safety issue 
at the San Rafael Police and Fire Department, who are based in 
the channel and need access and capacity for bay patrols, 
rescues, and other public safety activity. Given public safety 
concerns, the Committee urges the Corps to prioritize dredging 
of the San Rafael Channel.
    Small, Remote, or Subsistence Harbors.--The Committee 
emphasizes the importance of ensuring that our country's small 
and low-use ports remain functional. In the fiscal year 2020 
Work Plan, the Committee urges the Corps to consider expediting 
scheduled maintenance at small and low-use ports that have 
experienced unexpected levels of deterioration since their last 
dredging.
    The Committee is concerned that small Corps-owned 
navigation projects across the country are in critical need of 
investment (in many cases to mitigate public safety concerns) 
but continue to suffer neglect. The Committee, therefore, 
directs the Corps to prioritize projects for emerging harbors 
that have public safety concerns.
    The Committee is concerned that the administration's 
criteria for navigation maintenance disadvantage small, remote, 
or subsistence harbors and waterways from competing for scarce 
navigation maintenance funds. The Committee directs the Corps 
to revise the criteria used for determining which navigation 
maintenance projects are funded and to develop a reasonable and 
equitable allocation under the Operation and Maintenance 
account. The Committee supports including criteria to evaluate 
economic impact that these projects provide to local and 
regional economies.
    South Florida Ecosystem Restoration [Operation and 
Maintenance].--The Committee strongly encourages the Corps and 
the Office of Management and Budget to include an annual line 
item for O&M costs under the SFER programmatic budget. The 
Committee further emphasizes the responsibility of the Corps' 
to provide annual payments of the Federal share of such costs 
to local sponsors of SFER projects, as provided for by statute 
and contract, for O&M activities reviewed by the Corps 
Jacksonville District. The Committee notes that the lack of 
SFER O&M funding has significantly impacted local partners 
including the South Florida Water Management District and the 
Seminole Tribe of Florida and serves as an unnecessary 
bureaucratic impediment to the restoration of America's 
Everglades.
    Water Control Manuals.--The Committee has heard concerns 
that some water control manuals are decades old and in need of 
update, particularly in light of recent dam disasters and 
improvements in forecast-informed reservoir operations. 
Therefore, additional funds are recommended in the Other 
Authorized Project Purposes funding pot for water control 
manual updates for projects located in states where a 
Reclamation project is also located. The Committee directs that 
not less than $1,000,000 be used to develop a comprehensive 
list of water control manuals at Corps-owned projects located 
in states where a Reclamation project is also located, 
including a prioritized list of needed updates of those 
manuals. The Corps is directed to provide a briefing to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress within 
30 days of completion of this list.
    Water Operations Technical Support.--Funding in addition to 
the budget request is recommended for research into atmospheric 
rivers first funded in fiscal year 2015.
    WRRDA Section 6002, Review of Corps Assets.--The Committee 
is frustrated by the lack of progress of the Corps in 
performing a review of its inventory, in accordance with 
section 6002 of the WRRDA, as has been directed in previous 
Committee Reports. The Committee recommends $1,000,000 under 
the Asset Management/Facilities and Equipment Maintenance to 
perform this review.
    Additional Funding for Ongoing Work.--The Committee cannot 
support a level of funding that does not fund O&M of our 
Nation's aging infrastructure sufficiently to ensure continued 
competitiveness in a global marketplace. Federal navigation 
channels maintained at only a fraction of authorized dimensions 
and navigation locks and hydropower facilities well beyond 
their design life results in economic inefficiencies and risks 
infrastructure failure, which can cause substantial economic 
losses. The Committee recommendation includes additional funds 
for projects and activities to enhance the Nation's economic 
growth and international competitiveness.
    The Committee recommends not less than $4,000,000 of the 
additional funds recommended in the Scheduling of Reservoir 
Operations line be for a water control manual update for a non-
Corps owned high hazard dam where: (1) the Corps has a 
responsibility for flood control operations under section 7 of 
the Flood Control Act of 1944; (2) the dam requires 
coordination of water releases with one or more other high-
hazard dams for flood control purposes; and (3) the dam owner 
is actively investigating the feasibility of applying forecast 
informed reservoir operations technology. Of the additional 
funds recommended in this account for other authorized project 
purposes, not less than $2,200,000 shall be used to continue 
greenway trail improvements at Federal projects in partnership 
with a non-Federal agency. Of the additional funds recommended 
in this account for other authorized project purposes, not less 
than $2,000,000 shall be for efforts to combat invasive mussels 
at Corps-owned reservoirs.
    When allocating the additional funding recommended in this 
account, the Corps shall consider giving priority to the 
following:
  --Ability to complete ongoing work maintaining authorized 
        depths and widths of harbors and shipping channels 
        (including small, remote, or subsistence harbors), 
        including where contaminated sediments are present;
  --Ability to address critical maintenance backlog;
  --Presence of the U.S. Coast Guard;
  --Extent to which the work will enhance national, regional, 
        or local economic development;
  --Extent to which the work will promote job growth or 
        international competitiveness;
  --Number of jobs created directly by the funded activity;
  --Ability to obligate the funds allocated within the fiscal 
        year;
  --Ability to complete the project, separable element, project 
        phase, or useful increment of work within the funds 
        allocated; and
  --For harbor maintenance activities:
    --Total tonnage handled;
    --Total exports;
    --Total imports;
    --Dollar value of cargo handled;
    --Energy infrastructure and national security needs served;
    --Designation as strategic seaports;
    --Lack of alternative means of freight movement;
    --Savings over alternative means of freight movement; and
    --Improvements to dredge disposal facilities which will 
            result in long-term savings, including a reduction 
            in regular maintenance costs.

                           REGULATORY PROGRAM

Appropriations, 2019....................................    $200,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................     200,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     200,000,000

    The Committee recommends $200,000,000 for the Regulatory 
Program, the same as the budget request.
    Regional General Permits.--Not later than 60 days after the 
enactment of this act, the Secretary shall provide to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress a 
report detailing the five-year duration limitation on regional 
general permits under 33 U.S.C. 1344(e)(2), and the resulting 
undue hardship on economic development efforts. Additionally, 
the Corps is encouraged to outline the potential benefits of 
the following: (1) establishing a process by which non-Federal 
entities can negotiate permitting agreements with the Corps on 
pre-decisional permitting processes; and (2) allowing regional 
general permits to be granted for a time period sufficient for 
the permittee to complete the work specified in the 
application.
    Salton Sea.--The Committee encourages the Corps to expedite 
the State of California's pending request for Salton Sea's 
ordinary high water mark jurisdictional determination to ensure 
that Salton Sea mitigation projects may proceed expeditiously.

            FORMERLY UTILIZED SITES REMEDIAL ACTION PROGRAM

Appropriations, 2019....................................    $150,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................................
Committee recommendation................................     200,000,000

    The Committee recommends $200,000,000 for the Formerly 
Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program.

                 FLOOD CONTROL AND COASTAL EMERGENCIES

Appropriations, 2019....................................     $35,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................      27,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      35,000,000

    The Committee recommends $35,000,000 for Flood Control and 
Coastal Emergencies, an increase of $8,000,000 above the budget 
request.
    Hurricane Dorian.--The Committee acknowledges the severe 
coastal impacts of Hurricane Dorian along the southeastern U.S. 
from Florida through Virginia. The Committee urges the Corps to 
expedite assessment, rehabilitation, and renourishment of 
federally authorized shore protection projects along Hurricane 
Dorian's path to minimize the potential for future losses of 
life and property through the remainder of the 2019 Atlantic 
hurricane season.

                                EXPENSES

Appropriations, 2019....................................    $193,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................     187,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     193,000,000

    The Committee recommends $193,000,000 for Expenses, an 
increase of $6,000,000 above the budget request. No funding is 
recommended for creation of an Office of Congressional Affairs.
    Deauthorizations.--Within 90 days of enactment of this act, 
the Corps shall provide to the Committees on Appropriations of 
both Houses of Congress a list of all projects that have been 
deauthorized or will be deauthorized in the next two fiscal 
years as a result of section 1302 of WIIN.
    Inventory of Corps Projects.--Within 120 days of enactment 
this act, the Corps shall submit to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress an inventory of all 
authorized Corps studies and projects in each State. For each 
study and project identified, the Corps shall include by State, 
the specific authorization, respective mission area, remaining 
Federal cost to complete, and the current status.
    Other Transaction Authority.--The Corps is encouraged to 
expand its use of Other Transaction Agreements to execute the 
Civil Works program.

      OFFICE OF THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF THE ARMY (CIVIL WORKS)

Appropriations, 2019....................................      $5,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................       5,000,000
Committee recommendation................................       5,000,000

    The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for the Office of the 
Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works), the same as the 
budget request.
    The Committee is concerned about the bureaucratic process 
for renewing leases under the 16 U.S.C. 406d. The Committee 
encourages the Secretary to consider the efficiencies that may 
be gained by allowing Corps Districts to authorize lease 
renewals under this section, including lease applications in 
excess of 25 years.
    The Committee counts on a timely and accessible executive 
branch in the course of fulfilling its constitutional role in 
the appropriations process. The requesting and receiving of 
basic, factual information is vital to maintain a transparent 
and open governing process. The Committee recognizes that some 
discussions internal to the executive branch are pre-decisional 
in nature and, therefore, not subject to disclosure. However, 
the access to facts, figures, and statistics that inform these 
decisions are not subject to the same sensitivity and are 
critical to the appropriations process. The administration 
needs to do more to ensure timely and complete responses to 
these inquiries.

administrative expenses. This allows the Department of the 
Interior to develop water supply facilities that will continue 
to sustain economic growth and an enhanced quality of life in 
the western States, the fastest growing region in the United 
States. The Committee remains committed to complete the Central 
Utah Project, which would enable the project to initiate 
repayment to the Federal Government.

                         Bureau of Reclamation


                       OVERVIEW OF RECOMMENDATION

    The Committee recommends $1,730,000,000 for the Bureau of 
Reclamation [Reclamation], an increase of $620,151,000 above 
the budget request. The Committee recommendation sets 
priorities by supporting our Nation's water infrastructure.

                              INTRODUCTION

    In addition to the traditional missions of bringing water 
and power to the West, Reclamation continues to develop 
programs, initiatives, and activities that will help meet new 
water needs and balance the multitude of competing uses of 
water in the West. Reclamation is the largest wholesaler of 
water in the country, operating 338 reservoirs with a total 
storage capacity of 140 million acre-feet. Reclamation projects 
deliver 10 trillion gallons of water to more than 31 million 
people each year, and provide 1 out of 5 western farmers with 
irrigation water for 11 million acres of farmland that produce 
60 percent of the Nation's vegetables and 25 percent of its 
fruits and nuts. Reclamation manages, with partners, 289 
recreation sites that have 90 million visits annually.

                       FISCAL YEAR 2020 WORK PLAN

    The Committee recommends $620,151,000 funding above the 
budget request for Water and Related Resources. Reclamation is 
directed to submit a work plan, not later than 60 days after 
the date of enactment of this act, to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress proposing its 
allocation of these additional funds. The work plan shall be 
consistent with the following general guidance:
  --None of the funds may be used for any item for which the 
        Committee has specifically denied funding;
  --The additional funds are recommended for studies or 
        projects that were either not included in the budget 
        request or for which the budget request was inadequate;
  --Funding associated with a category may be allocated to 
        eligible studies or projects within that category; and
  --Reclamation may not withhold funding from a study or 
        project because it is inconsistent with administration 
        policy. The Committee notes that these funds are in 
        excess of the administration's budget request, and that 
        administration budget metrics shall not disqualify a 
        study or project from being funded.

                             REPROGRAMMING

    The Committee is retaining the reprogramming legislation 
provided in the Energy and Water Development and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019.

                           DROUGHT RESILIENCY

    Congress has invested approximately $700,000,000 over the 
past 5 years in drought and water supply-related activities. 
The Committee remains intently focused on the need for 
substantially increased investment in improving drought 
resiliency as well as in finding opportunities for agencies to 
combine water supply benefits with other mission priorities. In 
the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies 
Appropriations Act, 2017, the Committee began the transition 
from mitigating an ongoing drought in the West to preparing for 
the next one. The Committee continues that approach in this 
year's bill by recommending $206,000,000 for the drought 
resiliency programs authorized in WIIN.
    The Committee directs Reclamation to continue working with 
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the NMFS, and relevant 
State agencies to undertake comprehensive, around the clock, 
real-time monitoring of water supply conditions and their 
impact on endangered species during critical periods in the 
winter and spring.
    The Committee believes that the only answer to these 
chronic droughts is a combination of additional storage, 
substantial investments in desalination and recycling, improved 
conveyance, and increased efficiencies in the uses of water 
both for agriculture and potable purposes. As the West has 
consistently been the fastest growing part of the country, it 
is incumbent on Reclamation to lead the way in increasing the 
water that is available from year to year and to incentivize 
more efficient use of the water that is available.

                        UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEMS

    The Committee reminds Reclamation that a report was 
required in fiscal year 2019 regarding unmanned aerial systems 
[UAS]. Reclamation is directed to expedite completion of this 
report and within 30 days of enactment of this act, brief the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on its 
findings and subsequent actions, as they relate to foreign-made 
UAS.

                   CONGRESSIONALLY DIRECTED SPENDING

    The Committee did not accept or include congressionally 
directed spending, as defined in section 5(a) of rule XLIV of 
the Standing Rules of the Senate. However, the Committee has 
recommended additional programmatic funds above the budget 
request for the Water and Related Resources account. In some 
cases, these additional funds have been included within defined 
categories, as in prior years, and are described in more detail 
in their respective sections below.

                      WATER AND RELATED RESOURCES

Appropriations, 2019....................................  $1,391,992,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................     962,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,582,151,000

    The Committee recommends $1,582,151,000 for Water and 
Related Resources, an increase of $620,151,000 above the budget 
request.

                              INTRODUCTION

    The Water and Related Resources account supports the 
development, management, and restoration of water and related 
natural resources in the 17 western States. The account 
includes funds for operating and maintaining existing 
facilities to obtain the greatest overall level of benefits, to 
protect public safety, and to conduct studies on ways to 
improve the use of water and related natural resources. Work 
will be done in partnership and cooperation with non-Federal 
entities and other Federal agencies.

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

    Aamodt Litigation Settlement Act.--The Committee encourages 
Reclamation to expeditiously conclude negotiations with the 
settlement parties to reach an agreement pursuant to section 
611(g) of the Settlement Act (Public Law 111-291) to ensure 
there is no delay in construction. Under the Settlement Act, 
construction of the Pojoaque Basin Regional Water System must 
be ``substantially complete'' by 2024.
    Anadromous Fish Screen Program.--The Committee is concerned 
that insufficient resources are being devoted to completing 
work on the last two remaining priority unscreened diversions 
on the Sacramento River, both of which have been specifically 
identified as priorities in the California Natural Resources 
Agency Sacramento Valley Salmon Resiliency Strategy. The 
Committee strongly urges Reclamation to allocate sufficient 
resources from within available funds to complete the screening 
of these high priority diversions.
    Aquifer Recharge.--The Committee directs Reclamation to 
work closely with project beneficiaries to identify and resolve 
any barriers to aquifer recharge projects when appropriate, 
while utilizing full authority to prioritize funds for ongoing 
projects through completion.
    CALFED Water Storage Feasibility Studies.--In testimony 
before the Subcommittee last year, the Commissioner of 
Reclamation asserted that the agency would complete feasibility 
studies for the Sites and Temperance Flat reservoirs by the end 
of August 2019 and would complete the feasibility study for the 
Los Vaqueros reservoir by November 2019. The Committee notes 
that these studies have taken more than 15 years and expects 
Reclamation to take such steps as are necessary to ensure that 
each of these studies is completed as soon as possible. The 
Committee directs Reclamation to expeditiously complete any 
financial assistance agreements requested by the non-Federal 
sponsors of these projects to help move the projects forward 
more efficiently.
    Columbia Basin Project.--The Committee is aware of the 
Odessa Groundwater Replacement Project as part of the larger 
Columbia Basin Irrigation Project. The Odessa Groundwater 
Replacement project exists to address the severely declining 
Odessa groundwater aquifer within the Columbia Basin Irrigation 
Project boundary. The 2013 Odessa Groundwater Replacement 
Project Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision 
developed by Washington State Department of Ecology's Office of 
Columbia River and Reclamation provides the legal and 
regulatory framework to implement the Odessa Groundwater 
Replacement Project. The Committee is supportive of the Odessa 
Groundwater Replacement Project and encourages Reclamation to 
move forward on implementing authorized components of the plan.
    Dam Infrastructure.--The Committee recognizes that dams and 
dam infrastructure must be upgraded to be in line with safety 
and environmental requirements before Reclamation can take 
title. Therefore, the Committee encourages Reclamation to 
allocate additional funds to study modernization needs for dams 
that are proposed for transfer to Reclamation under existing 
agreements.
    Drought Contingency Plans.--The Committee commends 
Reclamation, the Department of Interior, and the seven Colorado 
River Basin states for completing drought contingency plans to 
conserve water and reduce risks from ongoing drought for the 
Upper and Lower Colorado River basins. The completion of these 
plans mark a major milestone in protecting a critical water 
source in the western United States. The Committee encourages 
Reclamation to provide sufficient funding for activities that 
support these plans.
    Groundwater Banking.--The Committee is aware of the 
continuing regional efforts across the West to design and 
implement groundwater banking storage projects to enhance water 
supply reliability and to help mitigate drought impacts. The 
Committee fully supports these efforts and believes such 
projects are a cost effective approach to addressing critical 
water supply management challenges. The Committee strongly 
encourages Reclamation, within available funds, to continue to 
foster and enhance existing partnerships with local and State 
water agencies and to undertake new partnerships where 
practicable. Reclamation's contributions to these partnerships 
should include technical, logistical, and financial support, as 
appropriate, for the planning, design, and construction of 
groundwater banking storage projects.
    Loan Program.--The Committee urges Reclamation to complete 
the agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency required 
by section 4301 of AWIA, no later than the statutory deadline 
of October 23, 2019. If Reclamation does not complete the 
required agreement by the deadline, the Committee directs 
Reclamation to report to the Committees on Appropriations of 
both Houses of Congress by November 1, 2019, on the obstacles 
that prevented meeting the statutory deadline and the projected 
timeline for completing the agreement.
    Mni Wiconi Project, South Dakota.--Reclamation is directed 
to continue working with the Tribes and relevant Federal 
agencies to coordinate use of all existing authorities and 
funding sources to finish needed community system upgrades and 
connections, as well as transfers of those systems, as quickly 
as possible. The administration is encouraged to include 
appropriate funding for upgrades and transferred community 
systems in future budget requests.
    Pick-Sloan Ability-to-Pay.--The Committee is aware of the 
significant financial impacts to more than 20 Pick-Sloan 
irrigation districts if Reclamation moves forward with the 
proposal to change the eligibility requirements for the program 
related to users' ``ability to pay'' [ATP] contrary to the 
original intent of the program. The Committee believes that to 
be consistent with the 1944 Flood Control Act and ensure the 
continued operation of irrigation districts that rely on Pick-
Sloan power, total Pick-Sloan power costs delivered to Pick-
Sloan Irrigation Districts should not exceed their longstanding 
ATP threshold, as included in all previous power contracts. 
Therefore, Reclamation is directed to continue to consider 
irrigation district ATP consistent with the original intent of 
Congress and the 1944 Flood Control Act. Reclamation shall not 
raise rates unless an ATP study shows there is the ability to 
pay.
    Projects Serving Military Installations.--The Committee is 
concerned that Reclamation's criteria for allocating funding 
have not adequately accounted for projects that would directly 
benefit military base operations and national security 
facilities. The Committee directs Reclamation to brief the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress within 
30 days of delivering the report to Congress, which was 
required in fiscal year 2019, on the recommendations contained 
within that report.
    Refuge Water Supplies.--The Committee is concerned by the 
lack of water infrastructure in wildlife refuges along the 
Pacific Flyway, which can limit Reclamation's ability to 
deliver full contract water supplies to refuges. The Committee 
encourages Reclamation to make every reasonable effort to 
dedicate funds to improving refuge water delivery 
infrastructure in the Pacific Flyway.
    Rural Water Projects.--Voluntary funding in excess of 
legally required cost shares for rural water projects is 
acceptable but shall not be used by Reclamation as a criterion 
for allocating additional funding recommended by the Committee 
or for budgeting in future years.
    San Joaquin River Restoration.--The Committee is concerned 
that Reclamation's fiscal year 2020 budget request proposes a 
$7,200,000 million cut to the San Joaquin River Restoration 
Program, even though Reclamation's 2018 Funding-Constrained 
Framework for Implementation identifies over $643,000,000 in 
needed program work through fiscal year 2024. The Committee 
encourages Reclamation to continue to seek annual appropriated 
funding at recent levels for the program. Permanent 
appropriations, newly available for the program in fiscal year 
2020, should not supplant continued annual appropriations.
    Scoggins Dam, Tualatin Project, Oregon.--The Committee 
supports the budget request for preconstruction activities at 
Scoggins Dam under the Safety of Dams program. Given the 
scheduled acceleration of activities to advance this project, 
the Committee anticipates that the administration will be 
proposing increased funding in future budgets. Consistent with 
the Tualatin Project Water Supply Feasibility Study authorized 
in Public Law 108-137 and statutory authority granted by Public 
Law 114-113 allowing for additional benefits to be conducted 
concurrently with dam safety improvements, the Committee 
directs Reclamation to evaluate alternatives, including new or 
supplementary works, provided that safety remains the paramount 
consideration, to address dam safety modifications and 
increased storage capacity. Considering the high risk 
associated with Scoggins Dam, the Committee urges Reclamation 
to work with local stakeholders and repayment contractors to 
prioritize this joint project, including a selection of the 
engineering preferred alternative by the end of 2019 and 
commencement of the NEPA review process in early 2020. The 
Committee understands that a replacement structure downstream 
could significantly reduce project costs for both the Federal 
Government and local stakeholders. Reclamation may accept 
contributed funds from non-Federal contractors to expedite 
completion of any level of review. The Committee understands 
Reclamation and the non-Federal project partners intend to 
finalize a Contributed Funds Act agreement in advance of the 
selection of the engineering preferred alternative.
    Research and Development: Desalination and Water 
Purification Program.--Of the funding recommended for this 
program, $12,000,000 shall be for desalination projects as 
authorized in section 4009(a) of WIIN.
    St. Mary's Diversion Dam and Conveyance Works.--The 
Committee recognizes the financial difficulty of upgrading, 
repairing, and replacing the century-old water infrastructure 
of the Milk River Project. The Committee encourages Reclamation 
to continue working with local stakeholders to find innovative 
ways to maintain this infrastructure without undue impact to 
water users.
    Water and Energy Efficiency Grants.--The Committee is 
concerned that many of the Water and Energy Efficiency Grants 
fund projects that may increase water scarcity at the basin 
scale by allowing conservation grant recipients to use 
conserved water for consumptive use. The Committee directs 
Reclamation to ensure that all projects funded under 42 U.S.C. 
10364 are in compliance with 42 U.S.C. 10364(a)(3)(B) and to 
articulate the use of the conserved water with its annual award 
announcements.
    WaterSMART Program.--The Committee encourages Reclamation 
to prioritize eligible Water Conservation projects that will 
provide water supplies to meet the needs of threatened and 
endangered species.
    WaterSMART Program: Title XVI Water Reclamation & Reuse 
Program.--Of the funding recommended for this program, 
$20,000,000 shall be for water recycling and reuse projects as 
authorized in section 4009(c) of WIIN.
    Of the funding recommended for this program, $20,000,000 
shall be for Aquifer Storage and Recovery projects focused on 
ensuring sustainable water supplies and protecting water 
quality with shared or multi-use aquifers, including municipal, 
agricultural irrigation, industrial, recreation and domestic 
users of the aquifer.
    Yakima River Basin Integrated Water Resource Management 
Plan.--The Committee supports the Yakima River Basin Integrated 
Water Resource Management Plan. This innovative water 
management plan represents years of collaboration in the Yakima 
River Basin among stakeholders including Reclamation, the State 
of Washington, the Yakama Nation, irrigators and farmers, 
conservation organizations, recreationists, and local 
governments to address water supply needs for agriculture, fish 
and wildlife, and municipal use. The Committee encourages 
Reclamation to move forward on implementing authorized 
components of the plan.
    Additional Funding for Water and Related Resources Work.--
The Committee recommendation includes an additional 
$620,151,000 above the budget request for Water and Related 
Resources studies, projects, and activities. Priority in 
allocating these funds shall be given to advance and complete 
ongoing work, including preconstruction activities, and where 
environmental compliance has been completed; improve water 
supply reliability; improve water deliveries; enhance national, 
regional, or local economic development; promote job growth; 
advance Tribal and nontribal water settlement studies and 
activities; or address critical backlog maintenance and 
rehabilitation activities. Reclamation is encouraged to 
allocate additional funding for aquifer recharging efforts to 
address the ongoing backlog of related projects. Reclamation is 
reminded that activities authorized under Indian Water Rights 
Settlements are eligible to compete for the additional funding 
under ``Water Conservation and Delivery''. Reclamation shall 
allocate additional funding provided in this account consistent 
with the following direction:
  --Of the additional funds recommended, $10,000,000 shall be 
        to continue groundwater treatment and remediation 
        activities; such funds may only be used to support 
        ongoing activities and may only be used to match non-
        Federal funds previously expended for similar 
        groundwater treatment and remediation activities;
  --Of the additional funding recommended under the heading 
        ``Water Conservation and Delivery'', $134,000,000 shall 
        be for water storage projects as authorized in section 
        4007 WIIN;
  --Of the additional funding provided under the heading 
        ``Water Conservation and Delivery,'' not less than 
        $27,000,000, shall be for construction activities 
        related to projects found to be feasible by the 
        Secretary and which are ready to initiate for the 
        repair of critical Reclamation canals where operational 
        conveyance capacity has been seriously impaired by 
        factors such as age or land subsidence, especially 
        those that would imminently jeopardize Reclamation's 
        ability to meet water delivery obligations; and
  --Of the additional funding recommended under the heading 
        ``Environmental Restoration or Compliance'', not less 
        than $40,000,000 shall be for activities authorized 
        under sections 4001 and 4010 of WIIN or as set forth in 
        Federal-State plans for restoring threatened and 
        endangered fish species affected by the operation of 
        Reclamation's water projects.
    Buried Metallic Water Pipe.--Reclamation shall continue 
following its temporary design guidance.

                CENTRAL VALLEY PROJECT RESTORATION FUND

                          GROSS APPROPRIATION

Appropriations, 2019....................................     $62,008,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................      54,849,000
Committee recommendation................................      54,849,000

    The Committee recommends $54,849,000 for the Central Valley 
Project Restoration Fund, the same as the budget request. This 
appropriation is fully offset by collections, resulting in a 
net appropriation of $0.
    The Central Valley Project Restoration Fund was authorized 
in the Central Valley Project Improvement Act, title 34 of 
Public Law 102-575. This fund uses revenues from payments by 
project beneficiaries and donations for habitat restoration, 
improvement and acquisition, and other fish and wildlife 
restoration activities in the Central Valley project area of 
California. Payments from project beneficiaries include several 
required by the act (Friant Division surcharges, higher charges 
on water transferred to non-Central Valley Project users, and 
tiered water prices) and, to the extent required in 
appropriations acts, additional annual mitigation and 
restoration payments.

                    CALIFORNIA BAY-DELTA RESTORATION

Appropriations, 2019....................................     $35,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................      33,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      33,000,000

    The Committee recommends $33,000,000 for California Bay-
Delta Restoration, the same as the budget request.
    This account funds activities that are consistent with the 
CALFED Bay-Delta Program, a collaborative effort involving 18 
State and Federal agencies and representatives of California's 
urban, agricultural, and environmental communities. The goals 
of the program are to improve fish and wildlife habitat, water 
supply reliability, and water quality in the San Francisco Bay-
San Joaquin River Delta, the principle hub of California's 
water distribution system.

                       POLICY AND ADMINISTRATION

Appropriations, 2019....................................     $61,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................      60,000,000
Committee recommendation................................      60,000,000

    The Committee recommends $60,000,000 for Policy and 
Administration, the same as the budget request.
    This account funds the executive direction and management 
of all Reclamation activities, as performed by the 
Commissioner's offices in Washington, DC; Denver, Colorado; and 
five regional offices. The Denver office and regional offices 
charge individual projects or activities for direct beneficial 
services and related administrative and technical costs. These 
charges are covered under other appropriations.
    Reclamation Project Reimbursability Decisions.--In 
September 2017, the Department of the Interior's Office of 
Inspector General released a report calling into question 
Reclamation's method of financial participation in the State of 
California's Bay-Delta Conservation Plan. The Committee is 
concerned that Reclamation was not satisfactorily transparent 
in its use of funds for activities that were not included in 
the budget request. Reclamation is directed to submit an annual 
report 60 days after the end of each fiscal year detailing the 
use of financial assistance agreements to redirect appropriated 
funds from their intended purpose outlined in the previous 
year's budget request. Reclamation is directed to review and 
report to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress within 90 days after enactment of this act, on the 
advisability of developing additional financial controls and 
requiring more extensive written justifications for 
determinations of what costs are reimbursable for complex 
projects involving major Federal expenditures and multiple 
funding sources.

                               TITLE III

                          DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

                       Overview Of Recommendation

    The Committee recommends $39,031,910,000 for the Department 
of Energy, an increase of $7,529,981,000 above the budget 
request.
    The Committee recommendation sets priorities by supporting 
the Office of Science and the Advanced Research Projects 
Agency--Energy [ARPA-E], leading the world in scientific 
computing, addressing the Federal Government's responsibility 
for environmental cleanup and disposal of used nuclear fuel, 
keeping large construction projects on time and on budget, 
effectively maintaining our nuclear weapons stockpile, and 
supporting our nuclear Navy.

                              Introduction

    The mission of the Department of Energy [Department] is to 
ensure America's security and prosperity by addressing its 
energy, environmental, and nuclear challenges through 
transformative science and technology solutions. To accomplish 
this mission, the Secretary of Energy [Secretary] relies on a 
world-class network of national laboratories, private industry, 
universities, States, and Federal agencies, which allows our 
brightest minds to solve our Nation's most important 
challenges.
    The Committee's recommendation for the Department includes 
funding in both defense and non-defense budget categories. 
Defense funding is recommended for atomic energy defense 
activities, including the National Nuclear Security 
Administration, which manages our Nation's stockpile of nuclear 
weapons, prevents proliferation of dangerous nuclear materials, 
and supports the Navy's nuclear fleet; defense environmental 
cleanup to remediate the former nuclear weapons complex; and 
safeguards and security for Idaho National Laboratory. Non-
defense funding is recommended for the Department's energy 
research and development programs (including nuclear, fossil, 
and renewable energy, energy efficiency, grid modernization and 
resiliency, and the Office of Science), power marketing 
administrations, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and 
administrative expenses.

                        Reprogramming Guidelines

    The Committee's recommendation includes control points to 
ensure the Secretary spends taxpayer funds in accordance with 
congressional direction. The Committee's recommendation also 
includes reprogramming guidelines to allow the Secretary to 
request permission from the Committee for certain expenditures, 
as defined below, which would not otherwise be permissible. The 
Secretary's execution of appropriated funds shall be fully 
consistent with the direction provided under this heading and 
in section 301 of the bill, unless the Committee includes 
separate guidelines for specific actions in the bill or report.
    Prior to obligating any funds for an action defined below 
as a reprogramming, the Secretary shall notify and obtain 
approval of the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress. The Secretary shall submit a detailed reprogramming 
request in accordance with section 301 of the bill, which 
shall, at a minimum, justify the deviation from prior 
congressional direction and describe the proposed funding 
adjustments with specificity. The Secretary shall not, pending 
approval from the Committee, obligate any funds for the action 
described in the reprogramming proposal.
    The Secretary is also directed to inform the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress promptly and fully 
when a change in program execution and funding is required 
during the fiscal year.
    Definition.--A reprogramming includes:
  --the reallocation of funds from one activity to another 
        within an appropriation;
  --any significant departure from a program, project, 
        activity, or organization described in the agency's 
        budget justification as presented to and approved by 
        Congress;
  --for construction projects, the reallocation of funds from

            Direction on Research and Development Activities

    The Department is directed throughout all of its programs 
to maintain a balanced portfolio of early-, mid-, and late-
stage research, development, and market transformation 
activities that will deliver innovative energy technologies, 
practices, and information to American consumers and industry. 
While Federal investment plays a greater role in early stage 
research, a balanced portfolio must be inclusive of Federal 
investment in mid-to-late research activities, including field 
evaluation of early-stage technology to provide testing and 
data collection in a real-world setting; to attract private 
sector cost share that will advance technology to market; and 
provide a bridge to small businesses, cities, or small 
utilities with fewer resources and tools to participate in 
energy infrastructure planning. The Department is further 
directed to fully execute the funds appropriated in a timely 
manner and to keep the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress apprised of progress in implementing funded 
programs, projects, and activities.

                        Crosscutting Initiatives

    Grid Modernization.--The Department is directed to continue 
the ongoing work between the national laboratories, industry, 
and universities to improve grid reliability and resiliency 
through the strategic goals of the Grid Modernization 
Initiative [GMI] and encourages the Department to include all 
applied energy programs to ensure broad energy system 
resilience and modernization. Further, the Committee supports 
the Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium and supports 
continued update and implementation of the Grid Multi-Year 
Program Plan to ensure coordination across program office 
investments in foundational and program-specific GMI projects. 
The Committee directs the Department to emphasize national 
energy systems resilience modeling and improved grid cyber 
resilience to address emerging national resilience challenges 
of the grid and related energy systems, planned investments in 
energy storage to improve grid flexibility and resilience, and 
advanced sensors and control paradigms that promise to improve 
energy system resilience of the future smart grid.
    Energy Storage.--The Committee is supportive of the 
Department's approach to consider energy storage holistically, 
and focus on advances in controllable loads, hybrid systems, 
and new approaches to energy storage. The Committee agrees that 
advances in this wide range of energy storage technologies will 
allow for loads to be combined with generation from all sources 
to optimize use of existing assets to provide grid services, 
and increase grid reliability. The Department is directed to 
use all of its capabilities to accelerate the development of 
storage technologies, including the basic research capabilities 
of the Office of Science, the technology expertise of the 
Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, the grid-
level knowledge of the Office of Electricity, and the rapid 
technology development capabilities of ARPA-E. The Committee 
directs the Department to coordinate efforts among various 
existing Department programs to maximize efficiency of funds 
and expand vital research.
    The Committee supports the Advanced Energy Storage 
Initiative included in the budget request, and recommends 
within available funds $3,500,000 to accelerate support for 
low-cost aqueous redox metal hybrid flow batteries to improve 
materials and the design of prototypes for one or more field 
demonstration projects.
    The Committee is pleased the Department included cost and 
performance targets for specific battery storage technologies 
in the fiscal year 2020 budget request, and directs the 
Department to implement those targets. Further, the Department 
is directed to develop specific cost and performance targets 
for long duration and seasonal grid scale energy storage 
research, development, and demonstration and include those 
targets in the fiscal year 2021 budget request.
    Cybersecurity Crosscut.--Cybersecurity activities within 
the Department cover a broad scope ranging from the protection 
of Department assets against cybersecurity threats to improving 
cybersecurity in the electric power and oil and natural gas 
sectors to other areas in the national security portfolio. As 
cybersecurity threats become more complex, and the Department 
increases its focus on cybersecurity research and development, 
it is vital that there be clear crosscutting objectives and 
coordination across the Department.
    Arctic Energy Office.--The Committee supports the promotion 
of research, development, and deployment of electric power 
technology that is cost-effective and well-suited to meet the 
needs of rural and remote regions of the United States, 
especially where permafrost is present or located nearby. In 
addition, the Committee further supports research, development 
and deployment in such regions of enhanced oil recovery 
technology, including heavy oil recovery, reinjection of 
carbon, and extended reach drilling technologies; gas-to-
liquids technology and liquefied natural gas, including 
associated transportation systems; small hydroelectric 
facilities, river turbines, and tidal power; natural gas 
hydrates, coal bed methane, and shallow bed natural gas; and 
alternative energy, including wind, geothermal, and fuel cells. 
The Department is directed to support a renewed focus on the 
Arctic region, and as a cross-cutting activity, use the Arctic 
Energy Office as a centralized area to support the use of 
energy resources, but also innovative activities, including 
microgrids and integrated energy systems.
    Small Modular Energy Solutions.--The Committee encourages 
the Department establish a crosscutting research initiative 
across the Offices of Electricity, Nuclear Energy, Energy 
Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and Fossil Energy to elevate 
research and development for small modular designs across all 
generation technologies and in concert with research and 
development for micro-grids so that the grid can capture the 
benefits of more resilient generation technologies.
    U.S. Energy Employment Report.--The Committee notes that in 
2016 and 2017, the Department produced a report to survey and 
document energy jobs across the country, spanning a range of 
jobs and energy sources within the energy sector. The 
Department is directed to conduct and release the report 
annually, starting again this year for 2019, to quantify energy 
sector employment and explore shifts in the energy workforce 
over the last several years.
    Strategic Energy Research Cooperation.--In order to 
maximize the impact of energy investments at the Department of 
Energy and Department of Defense, the Committee directs the 
Secretary to provide to the Committee a report no later than 
180 days after enactment detailing outcomes from the 2010 
Memorandum of Understanding Between U.S. Department of Energy 
and U.S. Department of Defense Concerning Cooperation in a 
Strategic Partnership to Enhance Energy Security, challenges to 
coordination, and ways that the departments can enhance 
collaboration to build on the goals of the Memorandum of 
Understanding and improve advanced energy research, U.S. energy 
security, energy storage, and efficiency.

                          Nonprofit Foundation

    The Committee directs the Department to contract with the 
National Academy of Public Administration within two months of 
the date of enactment of this act in order to convene an expert 
panel regarding the value of creating a nonprofit foundation to 
assist the Department to advance its mission of addressing the 
nation's energy challenges. The report shall include an

engage with the private sector to enhance ongoing and new 
efforts supporting the research, development, demonstration, 
and commercial application of innovative energy technologies. 
The Academy shall issue its report not later than 180 days 
after entering into an agreement with the Department.

                     Community Reuse Organizations

    The Department is reminded of its authority to transfer 
excess personal property and equipment to Department-designated 
Community Reuse Organizations in order to promote economic 
diversification and job creation in communities where the 
Department's sites are located, and is encouraged to ensure 
that relevant agency employees throughout the Department are 
aware of current policies to implement this authority. The 
Committee directs the Department to continue personal property 
programs that operated in fiscal year 2019.

                        Commonly Recycled Paper

    The Department shall not expend funds for projects that 
knowingly use as a feedstock commonly recycled paper that is 
segregated from municipal solid waste or collected as part of a 
collection system that commingles commonly recycled paper with 
other solid waste at any point from the time of collection 
through materials recovery.

                            ENERGY PROGRAMS

                 Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

                    (INCLUDING RESCISSION OF FUNDS)

Appropriations, 2019....................................  $2,379,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................     343,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,800,000,000

    The Committee recommends a net appropriation of 
$2,800,000,000 for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy 
[EERE], an increase of $2,457,000,000 above the budget request. 
Within available funds, the Committee recommends $165,000,000 
for program direction. The recommendation also includes a 
rescission of $58,000,000 of unused funds previously 
appropriated under the Defense Production Act for biorefinery 
construction.
    Staffing.--The Committee is concerned with the reduction of 
staff in EERE; there has been a reduction of approximately 90 
full-time equivalents since 2017, a reduction of 14 percent. 
Meanwhile funding levels have increased by $289,000,000, or 14 
percent. In addition, rather than using available funds to hire 
the Federal staff needed to responsibly manage a growing 
portfolio, the Committee is aware that funds are being used to 
pay general overhead expenses, a change in historical practice. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Under Secretary for Energy 
to report to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress not later than 30 days after enactment of this act on 
a plan for reaching a staffing level of not less than 650 full-
time equivalents within the first half of fiscal year 2020. 
Furthermore, the Committee directs that not more than 50 
percent of Working Capital Fund costs shall be paid out of the 
Program Direction account.
    Congressional Direction.--The Committee directs the 
Department to maintain a diverse portfolio of early-, mid-, and 
late-stage research, development, and market transformation 
activities. Regular engagement with industry is encouraged to 
provide confidence that a technology can be deployed to avoid 
duplication of private-sector efforts. The Committee further 
directs the Department to fully execute the funds appropriated 
in this act, as directed in this report, in a timely manner and 
to keep Congress apprised of progress in implementing funded 
programs, projects, and activities. Further, the Committee 
directs the Department to give priority to stewarding the 
assets and optimizing the operations of EERE-designated user 
facilities across the Department's complex and commends the 
Department for their commitment to the transformation of the 
National Wind Technology Center to support a large-scale grid 
integration research platform linked to national laboratories, 
universities and industry. In future budget requests, the 
Committee directs the Department to demonstrate a commitment to 
operations and maintenance of facilities that support the 
Department's critical missions.
    Research and Development Policy.--The budget request 
proposes a focus by the Department on early-stage research and 
development activities at the expense of later-stage research 
and development, field validation, deployment, demonstration, 
consumer education and technical assistance. The Committee 
restates that such a limited approach will not successfully 
integrate the results of early-stage research and development 
into the U.S. energy system and thus will not adequately 
deliver innovative advanced energy technologies, practices, and 
information to American consumers and companies. The Committee 
recommends funding to support a comprehensive and real-world 
strategy that includes mid- and later-stage research, 
development, deployment, and demonstration activities; and 
other approaches, and the Committee directs the Department to 
aggressively implement mid- and late-stage research and 
development activities to spur further innovation in the 
market. The Committee restates its concerns about how the 
Department is deploying funds and staff resources appropriated 
in previous fiscal years and directs the Department to 
implement the activities as directed in a timely manner and for 
EERE leadership to meet no less than quarterly with Committee 
staff to provide a status report on activities, including 
filling vacancies at EERE.
    Workforce Development.--The development of a skilled 
workforce is critical to the successful deployment and long-
term sustainability of energy efficient and renewable energy 
technologies. The Committee encourages funding within EERE 
programs to be allocated to training and workforce development 
programs that assist and support workers in trades and 
activities required for the continued growth of the U.S. energy 
efficiency and clean energy sectors. Furthermore, the Committee 
encourages the Department to work with 2-year, public 
community, and technical colleges for job training programs 
that lead to an industry-recognized credential in the energy 
workforce.
    Within available funds, the Committee recommends 
$40,000,000 to partner with a land grant university to pursue 
leading-edge interdisciplinary research that promotes workforce 
development in emerging fields by supporting a coordinated 
expansion of existing joint graduate education programs with 
national laboratories to prepare the next generation of 
scientists and engineers.
    Cybersecurity.--The Committee believes cybersecurity 
vulnerabilities must be addressed as renewable energy 
technologies enter the marketplace. The Committee also believes 
there is a gap with respect to distributed generators and 
behind-the-substation generators, storage, smart buildings 
technologies and electric vehicles where the potential for 
cyberattacks will continue to grow and threaten the modern 
grid. Within funds recommended for EERE, not less than 
$20,000,000 is recommended to bring cybersecurity into early-
stage technology research and development so that it is built 
into new technology.
    Energy Star.--The Committee supports the Department's 
ongoing role in Energy Star including through Home Performance 
with Energy Star as well as establishing and verifying energy 
conservation standards and test procedures for building 
appliances and equipment. The Committee directs the Department 
to continue these activities and provide robust funding. 
Further, the Committee previously directed the Department to 
provide to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress not later than 90 days after the enactment of the 
fiscal year 2018 Act, a report to review the 2009 Memorandum of 
Understanding related to the Energy Star Program on whether the 
expected efficiencies for home appliance products have been 
achieved. The Committee has yet to receive the report and the 
Department has not provided a sufficient update as to why the 
report is delayed. The Committee directs the Department to 
provide a briefing to the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress on the status of the report, and 
subsequently provide the report.
    Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program.--
The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant [EECBG] 
Program was operated by the Department from 2009 to 2015 and 
funded through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act. It 
provided grants and technical assistance to local governments, 
States, and territories to support a wide variety of energy 
efficiency and renewable energy activities, improve energy 
efficiency in transportation, building, and other sectors, and 
create and retain jobs. The Committee directs Department to 
conduct a comprehensive review of needed investments in energy 
efficiency, conservation, and renewable energy activities by 
engaging local governments, States, and tribes. The review 
shall include consideration of existing investments by other 
governmental entities and the private sector in planning, 
infrastructure, and emissions; and include estimated funding 
requirements. The Committee encourages the Department to 
provide all interested parties an opportunity to provide input. 
The Department shall submit its report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress no later than 1 year 
after the date of enactment of this act.

of lead-based paint hazards in homes.

                           STRATEGIC PROGRAMS

    The Committee recommends $14,000,000 for Strategic 
Programs.
    Within available funds, $2,500,000 is recommended for the 
Energy Transition Initiative [ETI] to support initiatives to 
address high energy costs, reliability, and inadequate 
infrastructure challenges faced by island and remote 
communities. The Committee supports ETI's efforts to develop a 
cross-sector initiative alongside community-based organizations 
pursuing energy transition efforts that will address energy 
challenges, build capacity, accelerate the sharing of best 
practices and innovations between similarly-situated regions, 
and leverage specialized, local expertise into commercial 
opportunity. Further, the Committee is concerned that, despite 
funding for this cross-sector initiative in fiscal year 2019, 
the Department has not begun any new work in this important 
area. The Committee directs the Department to support 
community-based initiatives by partnering with community-based 
organizations, and leverage the Department's previously-
developed tool, to build cost-effective, resilient energy 
infrastructure on island and remote communities, including in 
Alaska, Hawaii, New England, the Caribbean, and elsewhere.

         Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response

Budget estimate, 2020...................................     156,500,000
Committee recommendation................................     179,000,000

    The Committee recommends $179,000,000 for the Office of 
Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response, an 
increase of $22,500,000 above the budget request. Within 
available funds, the Committee recommends $13,000,000 for 
program direction.
    The Committee directs the Department, in coordination with 
the national laboratories, to identify and determine the 
quantitative values of resilience benefits that various 
categories of energy and security technologies provide to the 
electricity grid, in particular for those connected to critical 
infrastructure. The events and threats assessed should include 
real-world historical outages, cyber incursions and physical 
attacks, high-potential threats, and severe weather events. 
Similarly, the analysis should include investments in the bulk 
power system, distribution systems, and interdependent critical 
facilities and infrastructure. The minimum technologies and 
methods considered include advanced grid infrastructure, 
baseload electric generation technologies, demand response, 
energy storage technologies, and distributed energy resources. 
When preparing this report, the Department is encouraged to 
consult with a broad range of organizations, including the Grid 
Modernization Laboratory Consortium, the Designated Electric 
Reliability Organization, the Federal Energy Regulatory 
Commission, the National Association of Regulatory Utility 
Commissioners, and other relevant agencies and private groups. 
The Department shall submit the report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress not later than one 
year after enactment of this act.
    The Department shall not use any equipment, system, or 
service that uses telecommunications equipment produced by 
Huawei Technologies Company or ZTE Corporation [or any 
subsidiary or affiliate of such entities] or services as a 
substantial or essential component of any system; or as 
critical technology as part of any system; or maintain a 
contract with an entity that uses any equipment, system, or 
service that uses telecommunications equipment produced by 
Huawei Technologies Company or ZTE Corporation (or any 
subsidiary or affiliate of such entities) or services as a 
substantial or essential component of any system; or as 
critical technology as part of any system.

               CYBERSECURITY FOR ENERGY DELIVERY SYSTEMS

    The Committee recommends $96,000,000 for Cybersecurity for 
Energy Delivery Systems.
    The Committee recommends $10,000,000 for the DarkNet 
project to explore opportunities for getting the Nation's 
critical infrastructure off the Internet and shielding the 
Nation's electricity infrastructure from disruptive cyber 
penetration, including expansion of the communications network 
architecture and development of cutting-edge networking 
technologies. This effort shall be closely coordinated with the 
Office of Electricity.
    The Committee supports extension of cyber-risk information 
sharing tools to close remaining vulnerabilities in the 
distribution and transmission system. The Committee encourages 
the Department to continue existing work within ongoing 
programs and to invest in research addressing power system 
vulnerabilities in supply chain and life cycle management for 
critical power system components and advanced adaptive 
defensive methods for grid control systems.
    Within available funds for Cybersecurity for Energy 
Delivery Systems, the Committee recommends $7,000,000 for 
Consequence-driven Cyber-informed Engineering.
    Within available funds, the Department is directed to 
extend funding for Department of Energy Cooperative Agreement 
Projects DE-OE-00000807, ``Improving the Cyber and Physical 
Security Posture of the Electric Sector'', and DE-OE-0000811, 
``Improving the Cyber Resiliency and Security Posture of Public 
Power'' at an annual rate of not less than $3,000,000 per 
agreement.

             INFRASTRUCTURE SECURITY AND ENERGY RESTORATION

    The Committee recommends $70,000,000 for Infrastructure 
Security and Energy Restoration.
    The Committee recommends not less than $6,000,000 for the 
continued advancement of EAGLE-I. The Committee supports 
further development of energy sector situational awareness 
capabilities through EAGLE-I, the Federal Government's 
situational awareness tool for national power outages. The 
Committee encourages the Department to further illustrate how 
to benefit from increased access to more varied sources of data 
along with augmentation of analytics for response and recovery. 
The Committee expects this effort to align with the North 
American Energy Resilience Model [NAERM] being developed within 
the Office of Electricity.
    The Committee recommends the Department ensure no public 
funds are used to support government facility construction and 
tool procurement for Electromagnetic Pulse [EMP] simulation, 
geomagnetic disturbances [GMD] simulation or emulation, and 
demonstration programs if nongovernment facilities are 
available and can be used for EMP/GMD demonstrations in the 
multimegawatt power range on a component and system level. 
Taxpayer dollars shall not be utilized to duplicate capital 
equipment and infrastructure capabilities that can, in a 
classified or unclassified manner, be contracted to 
universities that can provide these services and capabilities 
for a fraction of the cost using or enhancing existing 
capabilities. Additionally, such facilities and capabilities 
give opportunities for workforce development at the 
undergraduate and graduate levels with students, post-
doctorates and faculty. University-based-labs are uniquely 
positioned to provide this platform. The Committee encourages 
the Department to ensure a collaborative public-private effort 
between national laboratories, utilities, and research 
universities with expertise from multiple institutions across 
diverse geographic locations.
    The Committee recommends $30,000,000 for the Advanced 
Mitigation Threat initiative. The Committee encourages the 
Department to assess the current structure of the Advanced 
Mitigation Threat initiative to focus on meeting the challenges 
associated with the merging of operational technology and 
information systems. The Committee recommends greater synergies 
across the national laboratories to better leverage the diverse 
talents and capabilities. The program is encouraged to work 
with the Office of Electricity and determine how the real-time 
effort of the North American Energy Resilience Model [NAERM] 
can provide the real-time data feeds for the Advanced 
Mitigation Threat initiative. Additionally, the Committee 
recommends leveraging potential synergies with the Office of 
Electricity on Defense Critical Energy Infrastructure analyses.

                          ELECTRICITY DELIVERY

Appropriations, 2019....................................    $156,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................     182,500,000
Committee recommendation................................     221,000,000

    The Committee recommends $221,000,000 for the Office of 
Electricity Delivery, an increase of $38,500,000 above the 
budget request. Within available funds, the Committee 
recommends $19,600,000 for program direction.
    Early-Stage Research, Electricity Sector.--The Committee 
rejects the budget's sole focus on early-stage research. Most 
utilities have limited research and development budgets, 
primarily due to regulatory constraints designed to keep 
electricity costs low for consumers. Additionally, utilities 
are unlikely to implement new concepts because most utilities 
would need to use their own systems for testing and evaluation, 
which could impact consumers. State public utility commissions 
also have limited budgets that do not support research and 
development. States rely heavily on the Department's technical 
assistance on assessments of data and tools to help them 
evaluate grid modernization alternatives. The Department plays 
a vital role, not only in early-stage research, but also in 
deployment, field testing, and evaluation in order to ensure an 
ability to develop concepts and transfer them to industry 
partners. The Department shall ensure adequate resources are 
provided to the national laboratories to perform work not only 
in early-stage research but also mid- to late-stage research 
and development efforts.

                TRANSMISSION RELIABILITY AND RESILIENCE

    The Committee recommends $80,400,000 for Transmission 
Reliability.
    The Committee recommends $10,000,000 for the Grid Research 
Integration and Demonstration Center to advance technologies in 
support of modernizing the electric delivery system and 
understanding the Nation's electricity infrastructure using 
real-time data.
    The Committee supports continued investment in advanced 
grid modeling algorithms and tool development to ensure 
resilient grid controls and protection systems that meet the 
challenges of the emerging smart grid.
    Within 180 days of enactment of this act, the Department is 
directed to provide a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress outlining the 
barriers and opportunities for technologies that provide 
increased, more efficient, and/or more effective delivery over 
the existing transmission network. The report shall also 
examine the reliability, resilience, and economic benefits of 
technologies such as power flow control, topology optimization, 
and Dynamic Line Ratings.

                     RESILIENT DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

    The Committee recommends $48,000,000 for Resilient 
Distribution Systems.
    The Committee recommends $20,000,000 for the COMMANDER 
[Coordinated Management of Microgrids and Networked Distributed 
Energy Resources] National Test Bed Laboratory to establish a 
data link for a back-up operations center that can benefit 
utility companies across the country and support the North 
American Energy Resilience Model [NAERM].
    The Committee directs the Department to focus on 
identifying and addressing technical and regulatory barriers 
impeding grid integration of distributed energy systems to 
reduce energy costs and improve the resiliency and reliability 
of the electric grid.
    The Committee supports advanced control concepts and open 
test beds for new distribution control tools for enhanced 
distribution system resilience.

                             ENERGY STORAGE

    The Committee recommends $51,000,000 for Energy Storage.
    Within available funds, the Committee continues to support 
development of an operational energy storage test facility 
capable of performance-driven data in a utility environment.
    Within available funds, the Committee recommends not less 
than $5,000,000 for the grid storage launch pad aimed at 
accelerating materials development, testing, and independent 
evaluation of battery materials and battery systems for grid 
applications. The Committee supports the Department's proposed 
Advanced Energy Storage Initiative and urges continued 
coordination between the program, the Office of Science, the 
Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and other 
Department offices to achieve commercially viable grid-scale 
storage with the most efficient use of taxpayer dollars.
    The Committee encourages the Department to further the 
development and demonstration of non-battery advanced storage 
components, including compressed air energy storage development 
and demonstration to enable efficiency improvements for 
utility-scale, bulk energy storage solutions.
    To further advance the development and demonstration of 
grid-scale battery energy storage projects with the funds 
provided, the Committee directs the Department to provide 
$10,000,000 for battery storage projects that meet the 
following criteria: are located in areas where grid capacity 
constraints result in curtailment of existing renewable wind 
energy generation; improve grid resilience for a public utility 
that is regularly affected by weather-related natural 
disasters; and provide rate reduction and renewable energy 
benefits to businesses, farms, and residents in an 
economically-stressed rural area.
    The Committee encourages the Department to support State 
energy offices and universities with energy storage planning 
and deployment, and to participate in industry-led safety codes 
and standards development. The Committee also supports funding 
for development of analytical methods for including energy 
storage in electric system planning, as well as for development 
of software tools to better value energy storage technologies.
    The Committee is supportive of research for novel materials 
and system components to resolve key cost and performance 
challenges for electrochemical energy storage systems based on 
earth abundant advanced chemistries. In addition, the Committee 
supports continued materials research that will improve the 
understanding and predictability of energy storage systems and 
components, as well as enable safer and more reliable materials 
and systems to be developed.
    The Committee encourages the Department to allocate 
resources to provide training and technical assistance to 
firefighters and code inspectors on battery storage, such as 
through scenario-based in-person or online training.

             TRANSFORMER RESILIENCE AND ADVANCED COMPONENTS

    The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for Transformer 
Resilience and Advanced Components.
    Within available funds, the Committee directs the 
Department to continue to support research and development for 
advanced components and grid materials for low-cost, power flow 
control devices, including both solid-state and hybrid concepts 
that use power electronics to control electromagnetic devices 
and enable improved controllability, flexibility, and 
resiliency.

                             Nuclear Energy

Appropriations, 2019....................................  $1,326,090,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................     824,000,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,517,808,000

    The Committee recommends $1,517,808,000 for Nuclear Energy, 
an increase of $693,808,000 above the budget request. The 
Committee's recommendation prioritizes funding for programs, 
projects and activities that will ensure a strong future for 
nuclear power in the United States.
    Nuclear Energy provides nearly one-fifth of our Nation's 
electricity, and nearly 60 percent of our carbon free 
electricity. While there is no practical way to combat 
greenhouse gas emissions without nuclear power as part of the 
solution, the nuclear industry continues to struggle. Reactor 
plants continue to close early, and new construction is almost 
nonexistent, primarily due to cost. Revitalization of our 
nuclear industry through technological advancement would have 
many benefits. First, it would enable replacement of aging 
nuclear plants in the United States with safe, affordable 
advanced reactors. For that to be possible, urgent action is 
required since a large portion of the current nuclear fleet 
reaches retirement over the next 15 years.
    Second, a revitalized nuclear industry would give U.S. 
Industry the opportunity to compete as the global demand for 
nuclear power grows. The World Nuclear Association estimates 
there are nearly 30 countries planning or starting nuclear 
programs. International support of new reactor programs is 
dominated by China and Russia, while the U.S. presence is 
limited. Nuclear projects, such as building a nuclear power 
plant in a foreign country, will result in long-term 
relationships between governments that span several decades and 
have tremendous influence across the spectrum of geopolitical 
issues.
    Finally, the United States has always been the 
international leader for nuclear safety and nonproliferation. 
To continue to lead, we must have a role in the international 
growth in nuclear power. We need to participate in a meaningful 
way. Absent that, we cannot expect the high standards of safety 
and nonproliferation will be maintained outside of the United 
States.
    The Department of Energy can and should play a more active 
role in supporting the revitalization of the U.S. nuclear 
industrial base. Without a clear vision and broad commitment 
across government and industry, nuclear power in this country 
will become nonexistent. The Committee recommends a realignment 
of funding across the Office of Nuclear Energy to focus on 
needed research, development and demonstration that supports 
the current nuclear fleet and enables a future for nuclear 
power.

                     INTEGRATED UNIVERSITY PROGRAM

    The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for the Integrated 
University Program.
    The Committee notes the administration repeatedly attempts 
to defund this program, despite continued success in developing 
highly qualified nuclear specialists to meet national needs. In 
addition to the Integrated University Program, the Committee 
recommends up to 10 percent from each funding account within 
the Office of Nuclear Energy to be applied to the Nuclear 
Energy University Program [NEUP], except Program Direction, 
Construction, and Safeguards and Security. For each control 
point, funds applied to the NEUP can only be used for 
university work applicable to that control point.
    The Committee is also concerned that the Department has 
been inconsistent in its administration of the NEUP, taxed 
research programs to fund the NEUP, and then used the funds for 
other purposes. The Committee directs the Department to provide 
quarterly briefs to the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress on the status of the NEUP, the allocation of 
funds from each control point, and the university work being 
funded within each control point.

             SUPERCRITICAL TRANSFORMATIONAL ELECTRIC POWER

    The Committee recommends $5,000,000 for Supercritical 
Transformational Electric Power Research and Development.
    The Committee supports the collaborative efforts between 
the national laboratories and industry partners to develop test 
capabilities and validate grid-compatible supercritical carbon 
dioxide Brayton cycle systems by April 2020.

                   NUCLEAR ENERGY ENABLING TECHNOLOGY

    The Committee recommends $110,000,000 for Nuclear Energy 
Enabling Technology.
    Joint Modeling and Simulation Program.--The Committee 
agrees with the Department's assessment that the Energy 
Innovation Hub for Modeling and Simulation and the Nuclear 
Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation Program have 
successfully developed tools that will be crucial to ongoing 
work supporting the current nuclear fleet, advanced reactors, 
and fuel cycle work. The Committee supports consolidation of 
all modeling and simulation within the Office of Nuclear 
Energy, and directs the Department to manage these two programs 
as single integrated program. The Committee recommends 
$40,000,000 for the Joint Modeling and Simulation Program to 
maintain the current codes and tools. Use and application of 
the codes and tools should be funded by the end user, not by 
the Joint Modeling and Simulation Program.
    Nuclear Science User Facilities.--The Committee recommends 
$40,000,000 for Nuclear Science User Facilities [NSUF], 
including not less than $3,000,000 to update the Nuclear Fuels 
and Materials Library and not more than $1,000,000 for the 
National Reactor Innovation Center [NRIC]. The Department is 
directed to brief the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress within 30 days of enactment of this act on 
the roles and responsibilities of the NRIC.

          FUEL CYCLE RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND DEMONSTRATION

    The Committee recommends $315,000,000 for Fuel Cycle 
Research, Development, and Demonstration.
    The Committee is concerned that the Department lacks a 
comprehensive strategy for managing its work on fuel cycle 
research. Accordingly, new control points within Fuel Cycle 
Research, Development and Demonstration have been created to 
help prioritize work in this area.
    Mining and Conversion.--The Committee recommends 
$10,000,000 and a new control point for Mining and Conversion. 
The Department is directed to contract with a federally-funded 
Research and Development Center [FFRDC] or other independent 
organization to work with industry to identify key challenges 
in reconstituting mining and conversion capabilities in the 
United States. The FFRDC or independent organization shall 
provide a report of their findings and recommendations directly 
to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress 
within 180 days of enactment of this act.
    Enrichment and Shipping.--The Committee recommends 
$50,000,000 and a new control point for Enrichment and 
Shipping. Within this amount, $40,000,000 is for the Civil 
Nuclear Enrichment Program. Both advanced reactors and accident 
tolerant fuels will rely on the availability of High Assay Low 
Enriched Uranium [HALEU]. The Committee is concerned that the 
Department lacks an overall strategy for HALEU, lacks a plan 
for shipping HALEU, and does not have reasonable estimate of 
the quantity or timing of HALEU required. The Department is 
directed to establish a team of experts across the national 
laboratories and industry to evaluate the anticipated demand 
for HALEU and the timing, and evaluate the options for meeting 
that demand. A report of the team's findings and 
recommendations shall be provided directly to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress within 180 days of 
enactment of this act. In addition, the Department is directed 
to contract with a company experienced in shipping nuclear 
materials to identify key challenges in shipping HALEU. The 
company shall provide a report of their findings and 
recommendations directly to the Committees on Appropriations of 
both Houses of Congress within 180 days of enactment of this 
act.
    In addition, the Secretary of Energy is directed to submit 
a report that describes a payment-for-milestones approach to 
uranium enrichment capability development, similar to how NASA 
partnered with private companies in its Commercial Orbital 
Transportation System [COTS] program, to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress within 180 days of 
enactment of this act. In particular, the Secretary should 
identify any statutory, regulatory, and DOE policy/procedural 
restrictions that would prevent or inhibit DOE from 
implementing public-private partnerships for uranium enrichment 
modeled after the NASA COTS experience.
    Material Recovery and Waste Form Development.--The 
Committee recommends $10,000,000 for Recovery to continue work 
on the ZIRCEX process to recover Highly Enriched Uranium from 
used naval fuel or unirradiated research reactor fuel. The 
Department is directed to follow DOE Order 413 for this project 
and to submit a Project Data Sheet for this project with the 
fiscal year 2021 budget request.
    Advanced Fuels.--The Committee recommends $30,000,000 for 
continued development of Tristructural Isotropic [TRISO] fuel 
and $115,000,000 for development of nuclear fuels with enhanced 
accident-tolerant characteristics to significantly mitigate the 
potential consequences of a nuclear accident. Within the 
amounts for accident-tolerant fuels development, not less than 
$55,600,000 is recommended to continue the participation of 
three industry-led teams in Phase 2B of the cost-shared 
research and development program; not less than $25,000,000 is 
recommended to support accident-tolerant fuels development at 
the national laboratories and other facilities, including the 
Advanced Test Reactor and Transient Reactor Test Facility; and 
not less than $20,000,000 is recommended for testing, code 
development, and licensing of higher-enriched and higher burnup 
fuels. Further, not less than $10,000,000 is recommended 
specifically for development of silica-carbide ceramic fuels 
for light water reactors. The Committee continues to place a 
high priority on this program and urges the Secretary to 
maintain focus and priority on achieving results in these 
efforts.
    Laboratory Support.--The Committee recommends $50,000,000 
and a new control point for Laboratory Support, including 
$20,000,000 to support advanced reactor fuel development and 
qualification. Within these amounts, $5,000,000 is recommended 
for use of innovative process control capabilities to support 
closed nuclear fuel cycles for advanced reactors. This funding 
line also includes all work previously funded in Systems 
Analysis and Integration and Materials, Protection, Accountancy 
and Controls for Transmutation.
    Used Nuclear Fuel Disposition.--The Committee continues to 
strongly support the recommendations of the Blue Ribbon 
Commission on America's Nuclear Future and believes that near-
term action is needed to address the accumulating inventory of 
spent nuclear fuel. The Committee recommends $22,500,000 for 
Integrated Waste Management System activities, the same as 
fiscal year 2019. Funding is recommended to implement plans to 
consolidate spent nuclear fuel from around the United States to 
one or more private or government interim central storage 
facilities. Priority shall be given to accepting spent nuclear 
fuel from shutdown reactors, and to accelerating the 
development of a transportation capability to move spent fuel 
from its current storage locations. Within funds recommended, 
the Committee recommends up to $10,000,000 for the Secretary, 
within existing authorities, to contract for the management of 
spent nuclear fuel to which the Secretary holds the title or 
has a contract to accept title, which includes contracting with 
a private company for consolidated interim storage of spent 
nuclear fuel.
    The Committee does not adopt the budget proposal to 
eliminate research and development activities for Used Nuclear 
Fuel previously funded in this account. The Committee 
recommends $27,500,000 to continue research and development 
activities on behavior of spent fuel in long-term storage, 
under transportation conditions, and in various geologic media, 
which will continue to be important to developing a solution to 
the waste problem. Priority shall be placed on the ongoing 
study of the performance of high-burnup fuel in dry storage and 
on the potential for direct disposal of existing spent fuel dry 
storage canister technologies.
    The Committee directs the Secretary to report to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress, not 
later than 90 days after the date of enactment of this act, on 
innovative options for disposition of high level waste and 
spent nuclear fuel management. Priority should be given to 
technological options which are cost-effective, able to be 
implemented in the short-term, and consider siting stakeholder 
engagement. Within available funds, the Committee encourages 
the use of research and development funding for innovative 
technological options.
    In addition, the Committee directs the Secretary to 
contract with the National Academy of Sciences [NAS] within 60 
days after enactment of this act to conduct a comprehensive, 
independent study on the waste aspects of advanced reactors. 
The National Academy of Sciences shall convene a committee of 
experts with expertise in advanced nuclear reactors, nuclear 
waste disposal, reprocessing, economics, and other areas of 
expertise that the National Academy of Sciences considers 
essential for completion of the study. Also, the NAS 
committee's consensus study report shall provide findings and 
recommendations that may consider policy options as long as 
those do not involve non-technical value judgements. The 
study's assessment shall include typical volumes and 
characteristics of waste streams from various proposed advanced 
nuclear reactor technologies, including radioisotopes of 
concern, radioactivity level, and thermal load. Advanced 
reactor technologies shall include the designs under 
consideration by the Generation IV International Forum and by 
the Department of Energy. The study shall also address unique 
disposal and/or storage requirements for these wastes and shall 
address the impact of possible reprocessing of spent nuclear 
fuel on waste generation. In addition, the study shall examine 
the economics of the possible waste disposal systems that could 
be required for the advanced reactors. The study shall be 
submitted to the Committees on Appropriations of both the 
Senate and House no later than 20 months after enactment of 
this act.
    The Committee also directs the Secretary of Energy to 
provide a report to the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress within 180 days of enactment of this Act on 
new electromagnetic technologies for the neutralization of 
radioactive wastes, including an evaluation of the scientific 
basis for the technology, potential effects on U.S. nuclear 
waste and storage, potential benefits to the nuclear power 
industry, and any implications for nuclear security.

       REACTOR CONCEPTS RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND DEMONSTRATION

    The Committee recommends $249,000,000 for Reactor Concepts 
Research, Development, and Demonstration.
    Advanced Small Modular Reactor.--The Committee recommends 
$100,000,000 for ongoing work to develop and deploy an advanced 
Small Modular Reactor [SMR]. No funding is recommended for this 
project within any other control point and no funding is 
recommended for JUMP, consistent with the budget request.
    Versatile Advanced Test Reactor.--The Committee supports 
the Department's effort to design, build, and operate a fast 
test reactor, but is concerned about the cost, schedule, and 
prioritization of this project. For example, the Department has 
not explained how it intends to fund either the construction or 
the operations of the reactor, and it will take more than 40 
years to fund the design and construction at the funding level 
requested in the budget. Also, the Department has not explained 
why it prioritizes this project above delivering an advanced 
small modular reactor or demonstrating an advanced reactor. 
Absent new small modular reactors or advanced reactors that can 
be built and operated safely and affordably, there will be no 
nuclear power in the United States in the future. If that 
happens, we will not need a new test reactor. The Committee 
recommends $40,000,000 for the Versatile Advanced Test Reactor 
[VATR] to continue work on the Analysis of Alternatives, but no 
work should be done that does not directly support CD-1. The 
Committee encourages the Department to explore options for 
international and private sector cooperation, partnership, and 
cost sharing that might make the Versatile Fast Reactor 
economically feasible.
    Advanced Reactor Concepts.--The Committee recommends 
$22,000,000 for continuation of the Advanced Reactor Concepts 
Industry awards.
    Transformational Challenge Reactor.--The Committee rejects 
the Department's proposed budget realignment and funds the 
Transformational Challenge Reactor within Reactor Concepts 
Research, Development and Demonstration. The Committee 
recommends $30,000,000 for the Transformational Challenge 
Reactor.
    Light Water Reactor Sustainability.--The Committee 
recommends $47,000,000 for Light Water Reactor Sustainability. 
The most cost-effective way for the United States to maintain 
low-cost, carbon-free electricity is to safely extend the lives 
of our Nation's existing nuclear reactors from 60 to 80 years. 
Therefore, the Committee recommends additional funding above 
the budget request for this activity as a priority. The 
Committee directs the Secretary to use funding in this activity 
to continue research and development work on the technical 
basis for subsequent license renewal. The Secretary shall focus 
funding in this program on materials aging and degradation, 
advanced instrumentation and control technologies, and 
component aging modeling and simulation. The Secretary shall 
also coordinate with industry to determine other areas of high-
priority research and development in this area.

                 ADVANCED REACTOR DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM

    The Committee recommends $300,000,000 for the Advanced 
Reactor Demonstration Program to demonstrate multiple advanced 
reactor designs.
    The primary goal of this new program is to focus government 
and industry resources on actual construction of real 
demonstration reactors that are safe and affordable (to build 
and operate) in the near and mid-term. This program is not 
intended to stop any ongoing research activities funded under 
other programs, especially since it will require some time to 
start the program and select the reactor designs that will be 
demonstrated. Therefore, the ongoing work in the Advanced SMR 
program and the work in advanced reactors, including micro 
reactors and the previously-awarded industry awards in the 
Advanced Reactor Concepts program should continue without 
interruption at the recommended funding levels. The Committee 
recommends five new control points in the Advanced Reactors 
Demonstration Program.
    Advanced Reactor Demonstrations.--The Secretary is directed 
to request proposals from industry to build two demonstration 
advanced reactors. The Committee recommends $200,000,000 for 
the first year of the two demonstrations, and each 
demonstration project shall be 50/50 percent cost-shared 
between the Department and the industry teams. For purposes of 
this program, an advanced reactor can be any fission reactor 
with significant improvements compared to the current 
generation of operational reactors and a demonstration can be 
an advanced reactor operated as part of the power generation 
facilities of an electric utility system or in any other manner 
for the purpose of demonstrating the suitability for commercial 
application of the advanced nuclear reactor.
    The Secretary is directed to convene an evaluation board to 
review the Industry proposals and recommend the best proposals 
to the Secretary based on the following criteria: (1) technical 
feasibility that the demonstration can be completed in five to 
seven years; (2) likelihood that the design can be licensed for 
safe operations by the NRC; (3) affordability of the design for 
full scale construction and cost of electricity generation; (4) 
and the ability of the Industry team to provide their portion 
of the cost share. The board must provide the Secretary with a 
recommendation of which two industry proposals best meet these 
criteria. The Secretary is directed to contract with the 
recommended industry teams unless the Secretary certifies that 
such a selection is not in the national interest.
    The Secretary is directed to ensure the evaluation board 
has the following members, in addition to any members the 
Secretary selects: (1) a representative from an electric 
utility that operates a nuclear power plant; (2) a 
representative from an entity that uses high-temperature 
process heat for manufacturing or industrial processing; (3) 
experts from industry with experience in design, manufacturing, 
and operation of nuclear reactors; (4) a representative from 
the finance industry with background in the nuclear field.
    Risk Reduction for Future Demonstration.--The Committee 
recommends $50,000,000 for Risk Reduction for Future 
Recommendations. The Secretary is directed to select two to 
five industry teams that were not selected as one of the two 
Advanced Reactor Demonstration, and enter into a cost share 
agreements to address technical risks in each proposal's 
reactor design. The cost share for this work shall be 80 
percent Government and 20 percent Industry.
    Regulatory Development.--The Committee recommends 
$40,000,000 for Regulatory Development, for the national 
laboratories to work with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to 
identify and resolve technical challenges with licensing 
advanced reactors.
    Advanced Reactors Safeguards.--The Committee recommends 
$10,000,000 for Advanced Reactors Safeguards to evaluate 
nonproliferation safeguards issues that are unique to advanced 
reactors.

                     NUCLEAR ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE

           ORNL NUCLEAR FACILITIES OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE

    The Committee recommends $28,000,000 for Oak Ridge National 
Laboratory [ORNL] Nuclear Facilities Operations and Maintenance 
for continued safe operations and maintenance of ORNL hot 
cells. The Department is directed to fund Research Reactor 
Infrastructure as part of the NEUP using Nuclear Energy 
Infrastructure funds.

            INL RESEARCH REACTOR OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE

    The Committee recommends $131,000,000 for Idaho National 
Laboratory [INL] Research Reactor Operations and Maintenance. 
This control point provides funding for the safe operation of 
the Advanced Test Reactor [ATR], a vital asset that provides 
research capability across the Department. The Committee is 
concerned that the Department has not evaluated the long-term 
costs of operating all of its nuclear infrastructure, including 
the ATR. This is especially important in light of the 
Department's plan to build and operate the VATR while the ATR 
is still operational. The cost to operate the ATR continues to 
grow.
    The Department is directed to contract with an FFRDC to 
evaluate current and projected costs to adequately maintain and 
operate the Advanced Reactor over its projected timeline. The 
FFRDC shall provide a report of their findings and 
recommendations directly to the Committees on Appropriations of 
both Houses of Congress within 180 days of enactment of this 
act.

  INL NON-REACTOR NUCLEAR RESEARCH FACILITY OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE

    The Committee recommends $128,000,000 for INL Non-Reactor 
Nuclear Research Facility Operations and Maintenance. The 
Committee supports continued investment in the infrastructure 
at INL, but also recognizes that several one-time items were 
previously funded and the work is now complete, including hot 
cell window and manipulator replacements, HVAC upgrades and 
roof replacements at the Materials and Fuels Complex.

                              CONSTRUCTION

    The Committee recommends $6,000,000 for the Sample Prep 
Lab, $758,000 above the amount requested in the budget request 
needed to fully fund construction work in fiscal year 2020. The 
Committee also recommends $5,000,000 for the Advanced Nuclear 
Materials Laboratory to begin the design once CD-0 is approved.

                 Fossil Energy Research and Development

Appropriations, 2019....................................    $740,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................     562,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     800,000,000

    The Committee recommends $800,000,000 for Fossil Energy 
Research and Development, an increase of $238,000,000 above the 
budget request. Within available funds, the Committee 
recommends $64,000,000 for program direction, and does not 
support the proposal to move Fossil Energy resources to 
International Affairs.
    Research and Development.--The Committee rejects the 
approach to only provide funds for early-stage research. Such 
restrictions would cripple innovation and development, and 
would reduce the number of energy technologies adopted in the 
marketplace.
    The Committee reiterates the importance of adequate Federal 
support to promote design-related work and testing for a 
commercial scale, post-combustion carbon dioxide capture 
project on an existing coal-fueled generating unit as well as 
research, development and deployment of breakthrough 
technologies.
    The Committee encourages the Department to prioritize 
research on carbon dioxide utilization technologies, direct air 
capture technologies, and industrial source capture. The 
Committee further encourages the Office of Fossil Energy to 
collaborate with the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable 
Energy through the Bioenergy Technologies and Advanced 
Manufacturing Offices, the private sector, and academia to 
support projects that utilize carbon dioxide in the production 
of algae and other potentially marketable products.
    National Energy Technology Laboratory [NETL].--No funds may 
be used to plan, develop, implement, or pursue the 
consolidation or closure of any NETL sites.
    National Carbon Capture Center.--The Committee recommends 
funding for the National Carbon Capture Center consistent with 
the cooperative agreement and fiscal year 2019. The Committee 
continues to encourage the Department to establish university 
partnerships to support ongoing fossil energy programs, to 
promote broader research into carbon capture storage [CCS] 
technologies, and to expand its technology transfer efforts. 
The Department has previously funded several university-based 
CCS projects and is encouraged to build on an established 
research base to support ongoing research and to address the 
wider implementation of CCS technologies.
    Fossil Energy Advisory Committees.--The Department is 
directed to exercise its existing authority to formally solicit 
input and feedback on program direction, research priorities, 
and other matters through the establishment of relevant 
advisory committees. Though utilized in the past, these 
advisory bodies have been curtailed recently without formal 
explanation by the Department. Federal advisory committees are 
an important tool Congress has provided the Department and are 
intended to serve as a mechanism that supports the proper 
investment of taxpayer funds in advancing critical research and 
technology areas. Within 90 days of the enactment of this act, 
the Department is directed to brief the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on the status of 
fossil energy Federal advisory committees. For those whose 
charter has expired or have not met within the last fiscal 
year, the Department shall put forward a plan that outlines 
steps to re-engage and solicit input from relevant communities 
through the Federal advisory committee mechanism. This update 
and any accompanying efforts shall align with the major fossil 
energy research programs, and include membership 
representatives of the research community, industry, and other 
interested stakeholders.

             COAL CARBON CAPTURE STORAGE AND POWER SYSTEMS

    The Committee recommends $517,300,000 for Coal Carbon 
Capture Storage and Power Systems.
    The Committee further recommends that the Department 
continue to use programmatic funds from the Department of 
Energy Office of Fossil Energy Research and Development 
accounts for Carbon Capture and Carbon Storage to support the 
Accelerating CCS Technologies Grant initiative, and that the 
Department take steps to identify new opportunities for 
increased collaboration with international research partners.
    The Department is directed to use funds from Coal Carbon 
Capture Storage and Power Systems for research and development 
that utilizes either coal or natural gas based generation of 
electricity.
    The Committee supports the Department's existing 
cooperative agreements to develop cost sharing partnerships to 
conduct basic, fundamental, and applied research that assist 
industry in developing, deploying, and commercializing 
efficient, low-carbon, nonpolluting energy technologies that 
could compete effectively in meeting requirements for clean 
fuels, chemical feedstocks, electricity, and water resources.
    The Committee supports funding for activities that promote 
the reuse of captured carbon dioxide from coal, natural gas, 
industrial facilities, and other sources for the production of 
fuels and other valuable products. The Committee further 
encourages the Department to establish and pursue a 
comprehensive carbon sequestration and utilization effort to 
combine research and development capacity and expertise to 
solve the carbon sequestration and utilization challenge within 
ten-years, with the goals of improving the economics associated 
with domestic energy production, achieving optionality in 
carbon management, and further reducing carbon dioxide 
emissions. Within 180 days of enactment of this act, the 
Department is directed to provide to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress a briefing on 
recommendations for program structures that could best support 
and maximize the impact of expanded research, development, and 
demonstration efforts in three areas--decarbonization of the 
industrial sector, direct air capture, and carbon use.
    Carbon Capture.--Achieving low-cost carbon capture 
technology is important to facilitating economic environmental 
mitigation solutions for the power and industrial sectors while 
opening up a broader carbon utilization economy. The Committee 
encourages the Department to focus its carbon capture research, 
development and deployment efforts on improving the efficiency 
and decreasing the costs of carbon capture technologies, 
demonstrating carbon capture technologies for private sector-
driven adoption at fossil energy power systems and industrial 
sources, and to identify how these technologies can be 
integrated within business models and operations. This includes 
small- and large-scale pilot testing of technologies moving 
through the program pipeline on both coal and natural gas 
applications, as well as on industrial sources. Within the 
funds dedicated to Carbon Capture, not less than $7,000,000 is 
for carbon capture research for natural gas power systems. The 
Committee acknowledges the economic and environmental benefits 
that could be produced by expanding the scope of carbon capture 
and carbon utilization research to a wider range of sources. 
Given the potential economic and environmental benefits, the 
Department is encouraged to expand activities to increase the 
capture of carbon dioxide from a diverse range of sources, and 
its subsequent use, reuse, and storage. Within available funds, 
the Committee recommends up to $4,000,000 for research and 
optimization of carbon capture technologies for use at 
industrial facilities, which may include developments in 
process equipment and chemistry, capture of process emissions, 
and systems integration.
    The Committee recommends $20,000,000 for technology 
research and development on direct air carbon capture and 
removal. The program is directed to coordinate with the Office 
of Science and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable 
Energy to develop a coordinated program, as recommended by the 
National Academies, that supports research, development, and 
demonstration projects to advance the development and 
commercialization of direct air capture technologies on a 
significant scale.
    Carbon Storage.--Within available funds for Carbon Storage, 
the Committee recommends not less than $15,000,000 for Carbon 
Use and Reuse to continue research and development activities 
to support valuable and innovative uses for carbon. The 
Committee believes the potential for carbon dioxide utilization 
technologies to become economically viable has improved in 
recent years, and these technologies should continue to receive 
attention from the Office of Fossil Energy.
    Within Carbon Storage, the Committee recommends $55,000,000 
for Storage Infrastructure. The Committee recognizes the 
successful work of the Regional Carbon Sequestration 
Partnerships [RCSPs] and the important role they play in 
supporting the research and development of carbon utilization 
and storage. The Committee supports the focus on infrastructure 
development strategies through continued efforts to develop 
regionally relevant business models for implementation, expand 
regional geological characterization to reduce technical 
uncertainties, collect and analyze data, and facilitate and 
inform regional monitoring permitting and policy challenges. 
The Committee directs the Department to expand the work of the 
RCSPs selected under fiscal year 2019 appropriation into multi-
year, public-private programs to further accelerate the 
commercial deployment of viable capture, storage, and 
utilization technologies. The Committee recommends not less 
than $20,000,000 for the RCSP program be added to the awards 
from fiscal year 2019 and focus on infrastructure development 
for carbon storage and transportation systems to catalyze 
commercial activities in carbon storage and utilization from a 
variety of carbon sources. The Committee believes regional 
initiative support is needed to evaluate and qualify sub-
regions for large-scale storage. Further, the Committee 
recommends not less than $30,000,000 to continue the four-phase 
CarbonSAFE initiative and directs the Department to solicit and 
select projects to support site characterization, permitting, 
and construction of the regional storage complexes. The 
Committee notes the absence of a storage infrastructure roadmap 
as requested in the fiscal year 2019 appropriations bill. 
Within 120 days of enactment of this act, the Department is 
directed to provide to the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress, a Storage Infrastructure Roadmap through 
2025. The Department is directed to work on this Roadmap in 
consultation with the selected RCSPs to help identify the 
knowledge gaps and technology and policy developments that are 
needed to close those gaps.
    Advanced Energy Systems.--The Committee recommends up to 
$30,000,000 for the solid oxide fuel cell [SOFC] program. In 
August, 2019, the Department submitted a congressionally 
requested report on the status of the SOFC program. According 
to this report, since its inception in 1995, the SOFC program 
has spent $750,000,000 culminating in two 200-plus kWe SOFC 
systems. One of these is still in testing and the other company 
has departed the U.S. market. The report notes that four other 
major corporations have left the fuel cell program. The 
Department is encouraged to work with industry in developing a 
rational approach to advancing SOFC research and development.
    The Committee encourages the Department to promote and 
assist in the research and development of new, higher 
efficiency gas turbines used in power generation systems to 
allow the United States to upgrade and increase the reliability 
and resiliency of the Nation's electrical grid system, to 
better compete against the threat of foreign competitors who 
are being subsidized by their governments, while reducing the 
cost of electricity and significantly lowering emissions. This 
includes awarding grants and funding contract proposals from 
industry, small businesses, universities and other appropriate 
parties. Further, the Committee supports optimal funding for 
the Advanced Turbine program, which supports the development of 
advanced, high-temperature materials including ceramic matrix 
composites.
    The Committee supports coal and coal biomass to both 
liquids and solids activities and encourages the Department to 
focus on research and development to improve cost and 
efficiency of coal-to-fuels technology implementation and 
polygeneration.
    The Committee recommends $20,000,000 for Advanced Coal 
Processing to support early-stage research and development to 
enable the conversion of coal pitch and coal to carbon fiber 
and other value-added products for alternative advanced uses of 
coal. The Committee recommends not less than $10,000,000 for 
utilizing coal as precursor for high-value added products at 
the Carbon Fiber Technology Facility.
    Crosscutting Research.--The Committee supports Advanced 
Ultra Supercritical Materials research and development to 
identify, test, qualify, and develop a domestic supply chain 
capable of producing components from high temperature steam 
materials. Further, within available funds, the Committee 
recommends $1,500,000 to accelerate development and deployment 
of wireless sensor systems for coal-fired power generation in 
order to improve generating efficiency, reduce emissions, and 
lower maintenance costs.
    STEP.--Within available funds, the recommendation provides 
not more than $9,800,000, consistent with the original scope of 
work, to complete the necessary design and construction of the 
10-MW pilot and conduct the necessary testing for the facility. 
The recommendation provides additional funding to be awarded 
for research and development activities.
    National Energy Technology Laboratory [NETL] Coal Research 
and Development.--Within available funds, the Committee 
recommends not less than $25,000,000 for the Department to 
continue its external agency activities to develop and test 
advanced separation technologies and accelerate the advancement 
of commercially viable technologies for the recovery of rare 
earth elements and minerals from U.S. coal and coal byproduct 
sources. The Committee expects research to support pilot-scale 
and experimental activities for near-term applications.

                        NATURAL GAS TECHNOLOGIES

    The Committee recommends $55,000,000 for Natural Gas 
Technologies.
    The Department is encouraged to issue a report, in 
consultation with the Department of Defense and the Department 
of Treasury, on the identification of potential benefits of a 
storage and distribution hub of ethane and other natural gas 
liquids to national security, including the identification of 
potential risks to national and economic security of 
significant foreign ownership and control of United States 
domestic petrochemical resources; and an examination of, with 
respect to the proposed hub, the following: (1) types of 
additional infrastructure needed to fully optimize the 
potential national security benefits; (2) whether geopolitical 
diversity in areas to which the ethane and other natural gas 
liquids will be exported from the proposed hub would undermine 
or bolster national security; (3) the necessity of export 
limits to ensure the potential national security benefits; and 
(4) the potential benefits, with respect to significant weather 
impacts compared to other regions, of locating the proposed hub 
in the Marcellus, Utica, and Rogersville shale plays.
    The Committee understands the benefits that natural gas 
demand response could bring to the grid, including reducing 
energy costs and emissions. The Committee encourages the 
program and the Office of Electricity provide up to $10,000,000 
for natural gas demand response pilot programs that would be 
developed by gas utilities, State public utility commissions, 
and local distribution companies. The Committee further 
encourages these offices to prioritize funding of pilots that 
have the potential to advance real-time deployment and testing 
of new technologies that could be used to monitor the 
effectiveness of natural gas demand response.
    Methane Hydrate Activities.--The Committee recommends 
$25,000,000 for methane hydrates. The Committee notes that the 
budget request includes no money for actual research into the 
methods for producing methane hydrates. The Committee 
encourages the Department to perform a long-term methane 
hydrate production test in the Arctic, as proposed in the 
Methane Hydrate Advisory Committee's earlier recommendations 
(May 21, 2014) to the Department. Further, the Committee 
supports field investigations in the Gulf of Mexico to confirm 
the nature, regional context, and hydrocarbon system behavior 
of gas hydrate deposits and recommends $5,000,000 for these 
activities.
    Environmentally Prudent Development.--The Committee 
recommends $12,000,000 for the Environmentally Prudent 
Development subprogram, including not less than $5,200,000 to 
continue the Risk Based Data Management System [RBDMS]. The 
Committee supports continued funding of RBDMS and in 
particular, its functions under FracFocus. The Committee 
believes FracFocus should maintain its autonomy and not be 
incorporated into any Federal agency.
    Emissions Mitigation from Midstream Infrastructure.--The 
Committee recommends $12,000,000 for the Emissions Mitigation 
from Midstream Infrastructure subprogram. The Committee 
recommends funds to support natural gas infrastructure 
research, including advanced materials and novel sensor 
technologies. The Department is directed to incorporate this 
research into its ongoing work in this field, so that it shall 
complement the Emissions Mitigation from Midstream 
Infrastructure subprogram.
    Nearly 30 percent of the total methane emissions from 
production through to distribution occurs during the gathering, 
processing, and transmission of natural gas. Up to 70 percent 
of these emissions related to compressor packing, seals, and 
equipment operations could be captured and recovered through 
re-compression and downstream introduction of the gas back into 
the delivery system. Therefore, the Committee encourages the 
Department to provide funding for research and development of 
energy efficient technologies to mitigate emissions through 
capture and re-compression downstream into the natural gas 
infrastructure.
    The Committee encourages coordination with industry and 
U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous 
Materials Safety Administration on methane leak detection 
technology development. The Committee remains supportive of 
investment in smart pipeline sensors and controls, internal 
pipeline inspection and repair, and composite and advanced 
material science technologies. The Committee encourages the 
Department to consider expanded use of gas pressure monitoring, 
both real time and hourly, in distribution systems to improve 
system integrity and safety. Further deployments of methane 
detection sensors closer to the consumer would add to overall 
safety.
    The Committee believes that the development, production, 
and transportation of natural gas should be done safely, 
without contamination, and in a way that reduces fugitive 
methane emissions. These practices are essential for mitigating 
environmental harms from shale gas development and reducing 
water contamination. Additionally, reduction of methane 
emissions has health co-benefits and preserves a valuable and 
finite resource. The Committee supports developing advanced 
pipeline inspection technologies to aid in cleaner and safer 
oil and gas development.
    Emissions Quantification from Natural Gas Infrastructure.--
The Committee recommends $6,000,000 for the Emissions 
Quantification from Natural Gas Infrastructure research 
subprogram.

               UNCONVENTIONAL FOSSIL ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES

    The Committee recommends $46,000,000 for Unconventional 
Fossil Energy Technologies. The Committee notes the importance 
of providing research support that will assure sustainable, 
reliable, affordable, and environmentally sound supplies of 
domestic unconventional fossil energy resources.
    Within available funds, the Committee recommends 
$20,000,000 for research that develops improved enhanced 
recovery technologies. These technologies are essential to 
maximizing the value of shale oil, low permeability reservoirs, 
residual oil zone reservoirs, fractured reservoirs, and 
conventional oil reservoirs, and should advance technologies 
related to wellbore integrity, artificial lift, well production 
operations, and applicability with data analytics. In 
continuing with prior direction, the Department shall ensure 
these funds are awarded to universities and not-for-profit 
research organizations. Additionally, the Committee recognizes 
the need to increase investments that foster the sustainability 
of the petroleum engineering workforce. Within 180 days after 
the enactment of this act, the Department shall provide a 
report to the Committees on Appropriations of both houses of 
Congress that outlines the Department's efforts to maintain a 
stable petroleum engineering workforce and knowledge base, as 
well as future activities the Department can undertake to 
strengthen it.
    The Department is encouraged to explore research and 
development for safe drilling and completion technologies that 
use no fresh water and can be deployed in horizontal wells.
    The Committee recommends not less than $19,000,000 for the 
Unconventional Field Test Sites.
    The Committee recommends not less than $4,000,000 for 
further research on multipronged approaches for characterizing 
the constituents of and managing the cleaning of water produced 
during the extraction of oil and natural gas, of which not less 
$2,000,000 is recommended to partner with research universities 
engaged in the study of characterizing, cleaning, treating, and 
managing produced water and who are willing to engage though 
public private partnerships with the energy industry to develop 
and assess commercially viable technology to achieve the same. 
The Committee encourages the Department to work with the energy 
producing industry to identify and develop commercial-scale 
technologies that can characterize, clean and effectively treat 
produced water to have beneficial reuse.

              NATIONAL ENERGY TECHNOLOGY LABORATORY [NETL]

    The Committee recommends $52,000,000 for NETL Research and 
Operations and $65,000,000 for NETL Infrastructure.

    Technology Transfer.--Within the amount recommended for 
Other Departmental Administration, the Committee recommends 
$9,080,000 for the Office of Technology Transition. In awarding 
funding from the Technology Commercialization Fund, the 
Department shall assure cost match with private partners is in 
accordance with cost sharing in section 988 of the Energy 
Policy Act of 2005 (42 U.S.C. 16352).
    Small Refinery Exemption.--The Department is directed to 
continue to follow the direction included in the Energy and 
Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
2019, under this heading.
    Chief Information Officer [CIO].--The Committee recommends 
$145,200,000 for Department-wide information technology and 
cybersecurity efforts. The Committee supports the Department's 
efforts to modernize its internal and external digital services 
consistent with the requirements of the 21st Century IDEA 
[Public Law 115-336]. The Committee believes the 21st Century 
IDEA will enable the CIO to improve digital service delivery 
for citizens and internal workflows. Therefore, within funds 
provided, the Committee recommends $4,000,000 to implement the 
21st Century IDEA requirements that have the most significant 
impact on mission enhancement and that most effectively 
modernize citizen-facing services; specifically, the Committee 
encourages the Department to modernizes and secure its forms 
and accelerate the use of electronic signatures to achieve cost 
savings and workflow efficiencies.
    The Department leads the Federal Government's effort to 
ensure cybersecurity attacks do not have a catastrophic impact 
on the energy sector, as well as to ensure the cybersecurity 
and resilience of the Department of Energy Enterprise 
infrastructure. The Department's CIO and the Office of 
Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response [CESER] 
lead the Federal Government's effort, in concert with energy 
sector owners and operators, to ensure cyber and physical 
attacks do not have a catastrophic impact on the nation's 
energy sector. The Committee commends the Department for its 
efforts in this area and directs the Department to continue to 
drive the implementation of the CIO Business Operations Support 
Services [CBOSS] program to maximize and fully meet the 
multiple mission requirements and support the Department's 
critical cybersecurity mission. Funding shall continue to be 
used to accelerate the deployment of continuous diagnostic and 
mitigation [CDM] and the CIO's effort to implement CDM 
capabilities across the entire Department, including the 
national laboratories. Funding resources shall continue to be 
prioritized to ensure that the CIO continues to work closely 
with the Office of Electricity and CESER to ensure coordinated 
protection of the Power Marketing Administrations and unified 
support for cybersecurity of the energy sector as well as 
initiatives for information technology and data center 
optimization, movement to the cloud and enhancing the 
stewardship of information technology spending including 
progress in implementing technology business management, 
incorporating new controls on information technology spend 
capture in financial systems in cooperation with the Office of 
the Chief Financial Officer, and expanding the use of category 
management and best in class contract vehicles.

                    Office of the Inspector General

Appropriations, 2019....................................     $51,330,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................      54,215,000

                    ATOMIC ENERGY DEFENSE ACTIVITIES


                NATIONAL NUCLEAR SECURITY ADMINISTRATION

    The Committee recommendation for the National Nuclear 
Security Administration [NNSA] continues funding for 
recapitalization of our nuclear weapons infrastructure, while 
modernizing and maintaining a safe, secure, and credible 
nuclear deterrent without the need for underground testing. 
This is among our most important national security priorities.
    At the same time, the Committee supports continuing 
important efforts to secure and permanently eliminate remaining 
stockpiles of nuclear and radiological materials overseas and 
in the United States that could be used for nuclear or 
radiological weapons. In addition, the Committee supports Naval 
Reactors and the important role they play in enabling the 
Navy's nuclear fleet.
    The NNSA is a semi-autonomous agency within the Department. 
The NNSA Act clearly lays out the functions of the NNSA, and 
gives the Administrator authority over, and responsibility for, 
those functions. Again this year, no funds shall be used to 
reorganize, reclassify, or study combining any of those 
functions with the Department.
    A highly-skilled and diverse workforce is required to 
maintain and modernize the nuclear weapons stockpile and 
execute the global nonproliferation initiatives of the NNSA. 
The Committee commends the NNSA for its aggressive efforts to 
recruit and retain this unique workforce.

                     INTEGRATED UNIVERSITY PROGRAM

    The Committee directs the Secretary to carry out the 
requirements of the Integrated University Program in support of 
university research and development in areas relevant to the 
NNSA's mission. Within available funds, the Committee 
recommends not less than $5,000,000 for the Integrated 
University Program to cultivate the next generation of leaders 
in nonproliferation, nuclear security, and international 
security. Together with funds from the Office of Nuclear Energy 
and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, this program ensures 
highly qualified nuclear specialists will be available to meet 
national needs. The Committee directs the Department to request 
funding for this program in future budget years. Funding for 
this program shall not come from prior year funds.
    In addition to the Integrated University Program within 
Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation, the NNSA manages several 
university-related programs, ranging from fellowships and 
scholarships to university research. The NNSA is directed to 
provide a report annually with the budget request that lists 
all of the university programs requested, the recommended 
funding level, and the value that program provides the NNSA.

                           PROJECT MANAGEMENT

    The Committee is concerned about the NNSA's ability to 
properly estimate costs and timelines for large projects. The 
NNSA is encouraged to assess current performance on projects 
costing more than $750,000,000, and make appropriate project 
management changes. The Committee encourages the NNSA to 
identify problems in cost and schedule estimates early, and 
provide updated information to the Committees on Appropriations 
of both Houses of Congress in a timely manner.

                           Weapons Activities

Appropriations, 2019.................................... $11,100,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................  12,408,603,000
Committee recommendation................................  12,742,000,000

    The Committee recommends $12,742,000,000 for Weapons 
Activities, an increase of $333,397,000 above the budget 
request, to ensure the safety, security, reliability, and 
effectiveness of the Nation's nuclear weapons stockpile without 
the need for nuclear testing.

                        DIRECTED STOCKPILE WORK

    The Committee recommends $5,462,417,000 for Directed 
Stockpile Work.
    Life Extension Programs.--The Committee recommends 
$2,117,359,000 for Life Extension Programs [LEPs] and Major 
Alterations, which fully funds all LEPs and major alterations 
in the budget request, consistent with the plan of record 
approved by the Nuclear Weapons Council. The NNSA, the Weapons 
Laboratories, and the Production Sites need to ensure any 
technical challenges or production issues, particularly in the 
electronic components, are discovered quickly and mitigated to 
minimize impacts to completing LEPs on time and on budget, and 
to prevent impact on other high priorities, such as modernizing 
aging infrastructure, and funding for critical programs in 
support of nonproliferation, nuclear terrorism, and naval 
reactors.
    The Committee is concerned that a recent technical 
challenge demonstrates a lack of systems engineering and 
highlights a lack of coordination and leadership focus, which 
in turn jeopardizes successful program execution. The NNSA is 
directed to establish an investigative team that shall include 
members with broad experience in similar technical reviews and 
shall also include members outside of Defense Programs to 
examine the issue and make recommendations to the Administrator 
to: (1) improve causal analysis within the Weapons Program; (2) 
identify the root cause(s) of this issue; (3) ensure the extent 
of condition is not more widespread than currently reported; 
and (4) identify corrective actions to prevent re-occurence. 
Within 90 days of enactment of this act, the team shall 
complete the examination and provide a written report of its 
findings and recommendations to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress.
    Weapons Dismantlement and Disposition.--The Committee 
recommends $56,000,000 for the dismantlement of retired nuclear 
weapons removed from the stockpile.
    Strategic Materials.--The Committee supports continued 
investment in strategic materials, including management of 
existing material stockpiles and methods to replenish the 
supply needed for our national security programs. As the 
Department progresses through the ongoing warhead life 
extension programs, it will require the necessary strategic 
materials to meet the stockpile demands. The Committee has 
encouraged NNSA to explore all options to ensure it can 
maintain a consistent supply of purified uranium metal and 
other strategic materials. The Committee is concerned that 
NNSA's current plan does not consider all options, and may not 
be the most efficient. NNSA is directed to complete an 
independent technical review of all options prior to commencing 
any work to convert uranium oxide to metal.
    The Committee continues to support the Nuclear Weapons 
Council's program of record for plutonium pit production, and 
directs the NNSA to provide a clear breakout of costs for each 
work activity in future budget requests.
    Domestic Uranium Enrichment.--The Committee recommends 
$70,000,000 for Domestic Uranium Enrichment. A new control 
point has been created for downblending high-enriched uranium, 
so no funds are recommended for downblending within this 
control point.

           RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TECHNOLOGY, AND ENGINEERING

    The Committee recommends $2,442,415,000 for Research, 
Development, Technology, and Engineering.
    Engineering.--The Committee supports investment in Surety 
Science in recognition of new threats and the challenges 
maintaining readiness on aging systems. Within the amount 
recommended, $5,000,000 is for next-generation technology 
development for warhead system certification and the protection 
against theft, loss and terrorism incidents.
    Enhanced Capabilities for Subcritical Experiments.--The 
Committee recommends $125,160,000 for Enhanced Capabilities for 
Subcritical Experiments [ECSE], a reduction of $20,000,000 
below the request. While the Committee recognizes the 
importance of this project, there is not a clear, consistent 
set of requirements or a plan to meet those requirements. 
Furthermore, the Committee directs NNSA to identify and execute 
opportunities to further the proliferation detection research 
and development agenda as part of the project. The Committee 
directs NNSA to brief the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress not later than 60 days after enactment of 
this Act on the ways the Weapons and Nonproliferation programs 
intend to collaborate in this area.
    Academic Alliances and Partnerships.--The Committee 
recognizes the importance of the Academic Alliances and 
Partnerships program in supporting fundamental science and 
technology research at universities that support stockpile 
stewardship, the development of the next generation of highly-
trained workforce, and the maintenance of a strong network of 
independent technical peers. The Committee is also aware of the 
expertise provided to the NNSA by academic alliances and the 
centers of excellence program. The Committee encourages the 
NNSA to fund new centers of excellence, especially in the field 
of materials under extreme conditions research. The Committee 
recommends $70,000,000. Within this amount, not less than 
$5,000,000 is recommended for Tribal Colleges and Universities 
and not less than $20,000,000 is separately recommended for the 
Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program. Within the 
Tribal Colleges and Universities program, the Committee directs 
NNSA to continue existing advanced manufacturing partnerships 
and expand the program to other institutions.
    Inertial Confinement Fusion Ignition and High-Yield.--The 
Committee finds that the Inertial Confinement Fusion and High 
Yield [ICF] program continues to be a critical and essential 
component of nuclear stockpile certification without 
underground nuclear weapons testing, maintaining U.S. 
leadership in high energy density physics and laser 
technologies, and developing the next-generation workforce. 
Therefore, the Committee recommends $570,000,000 for the ICF 
program. The recommendation includes not less than $344,000,000 
for the National Ignition Facility, not less than $63,100,000 
for the Z Facility, not less than $6,000,000 for the NIKE Laser 
at the Naval Research Laboratory, and not less than $80,000,000 
for the OMEGA laser facility.
    The Committee encourages continued research in High Energy 
Density Plasmas and recognizes the partnerships between the 
laboratories and research universities to address the critical 
need for skilled graduates to replace an aging workforce at our 
NNSA laboratories. Within available funds, the Committee 
recommends up to $5,000,000 for the Joint Program in High 
Energy Density Laboratory Plasmas.
    The Committee directs NNSA's Deputy Administrator for 
Defense Programs to charge the JASON Defense Advisory Panel to 
conduct an independent review of the Inertial Confinement 
Fusion program. The JASON Defense Advisory Panel should be 
responsible for assessing the value and effectiveness of the 
inertial confinement fusion program in maintaining a safe, 
secure, and effective nuclear stockpile and recruiting a highly 
skilled and talented workforce to national security missions, 
including a pipeline to the NNSA national laboratories, and 
offer recommendations on how to further strengthen the program 
over the next ten years. The JASON Defense Advisory Panel 
should also independently evaluate the technical progress of 
all three approaches to ignition, recommend and prioritize 
future research and infrastructure priorities to make further 
progress in achieving ignition, and assess the status of 
international competition and the United States' ability to 
avoid technological surprise. These assessments should be 
completed and provided to the Committees on Appropriations of 
both Houses of Congress by September 30, 2020, and an 
unclassified summary should be made available.
    The Committee recognizes that a predictable and sustained 
flow of targets is essential to operation of NNSA's large laser 
facilities. A robust vendor base promotes innovation and 
ensures defense-in-depth. Furthermore, the national 
laboratories are the target fabrication centers of last resort, 
even while they maintain expertise to make them knowledgeable 
buyers. Therefore, within available funds for facility 
operations and other amounts, the Committee recommends not less 
than $30,000,000 for target research, development, and 
production. Further, NNSA is directed to provide a 
justification for all target fabrication conducted by its 
national laboratories.
    The Committee is concerned that near peer adversaries are 
developing a capability to eclipse the scientific leadership of 
the United States with regard to pulsed power experiments and 
technology. The Administrator, within 45 days of enactment of 
this act shall submit a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both the House and the Senate, with 
appropriate classified annexes, describing the NNSA's plans to 
meet or exceed proposed near peer technological developments 
with regard to pulsed power facilities and technologies. The 
administration shall include a preliminary budget to build or 
modify existing facilities to address shortfalls and prevent a 
technological surprise.
    Advanced Simulation and Computing.--The Committee 
recommends $839,849,000 for advanced simulation and computing. 
Within available funds, the Committee recommends not less than 
$309,303,000 for activities associated with the exascale 
initiative, such as advanced system architecture design 
contracts with vendors and advanced weapons code development to 
effectively use new high performance computing platforms. 
Within funds provided, the Committee recommends up to 
$48,000,000 for artificial intelligence to support NNSA work.
    Advancements in artificial intelligence and machine 
learning have presented numerous opportunities for advancements 
in multiple fields. The stockpile stewardship program may 
benefit from the implementation of either tool and the 
committee supports the efforts to develop data driven tools 
such as artificial intelligence and machine learning to 
identify issues within the stockpile and to better understand 
how the stockpile is aging. Furthermore, the committee is 
cognizant of the multiple uses for AI and machine learning and 
support the implementation of the technologies into other NNSA 
supported programs, including for the development of hypersonic 
technologies, space based equities, additive manufacturing, 
cyber protection, and basic science and engineering in support 
of the national security mission. Within 180 days the 
Administrator shall submit a plan to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on how the NNSA plans 
to utilize artificial intelligence and machine learning over 
the next five years throughout the NNSA complex, and the 
preliminary budget requirements to implement this plan. 
Furthermore, the Administrator shall provide an analysis of how 
small businesses can compete for contracts to support these 
efforts.
    Advanced Manufacturing Development.--The Committee 
recommends $144,000,000 for Advanced Manufacturing Development. 
Within available funds, $70,000,000 is recommended for Process 
Technology Development, including $10,000,000 to modernize and 
upgrade legacy applications at weapons production facilities to 
improve manufacturing and safety.

                     INFRASTRUCTURE AND OPERATIONS

    The Committee recommends $3,319,444,000 for Infrastructure 
and Operations.
    Project 06-D-141, Uranium Processing Facility, Y-12, Oak 
Ridge, Tennessee.--The Committee recommends $745,000,000 to 
continue construction activities of the five remaining 
subprojects of the Uranium Processing Facility, including the 
Main Process Building and the Salvage and Accountability 
Building.
    The Committee supports the ongoing effort to replace 
existing enriched uranium capabilities currently residing in 
Building 9212 by 2025 for not more than $6,500,000,000 and the 
strategy of breaking the project into more manageable 
subprojects. This practice is specifically permitted by DOE 
Order 413.3B, and is a practical approach for any project of 
this magnitude.
    Maintenance and Repair of Facilities.--Within the amounts 
provided, the Committee recommends not less than $60,000,000 
for infrastructure at the Nevada National Security Site.
    Construction of Non-Nuclear Facilities.--The Committee is 
concerned that NNSA is not adequately tailoring its 
requirements to small, non-nuclear facilities, such as parking 
lots, fire stations, office buildings, and emergency control 
centers. As a result, these facilities are taking longer and 
costing more, to build.

                        DEFENSE NUCLEAR SECURITY

    The Committee recommends $800,000,000 for Defense Nuclear 
Security.
    Project 17-D-710, West End Protected Area Reduction, Y-
12.--The Committee recommends $35,000,000 to complete the West 
End Protected Area Reduction. The Committee notes that the 
budget request states that contract acquisition will begin in 
fiscal year 2020, and encourages NNSA to complete CD-2 and 
proceed to construction without delay.

                    Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation

Appropriations, 2019....................................  $1,930,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................   1,993,302,000
Committee recommendation................................   2,085,000,000

    The Committee recommends $2,085,000,000 for Defense Nuclear 
Nonproliferation, an increase of $91,698,000 above the budget 
request.
    Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation provides a vitally 
important component of our national security, preventing 
nuclear materials and weapons from falling into the wrong 
hands, including non-weapons nations, terrorist organizations, 
and other non-state entities. This mission is challenged by an 
increasingly dangerous world with emerging and evolving 
threats, in addition to the proliferation of technologies that 
simplify production, manufacturing, and design of nuclear 
materials and weapons. The Committee recognizes the importance 
of bilateral and multilateral agreements and organizations in 
detecting, intercepting, and deterring nuclear and radiological 
threats. The Committee urges the full use of these partnerships 
to further strengthen U.S. and global security.
    Domestic Radiological Security.--The Committee recommends 
$137,433,000 for Domestic Radiological Security, including not 
less than $35,000,000 for the Cesium Irradiator Replacement 
Program. Within this amount $10,000,000 is to address recovery 
and decontamination efforts associated the container breach and 
release of material in Seattle, Washington, on May 2, 2019, and 
up to $18,000,000 to partner with interested State or local 
governments to improve capabilities to train first-responders, 
and other experts in nuclear operations, safeguards, cyber, and 
emergency operations.
    The Committee is aware of issues related to non-
radioisotopic alternative technologies to those that use 
Category 1 and 2 radioactive material, including the technology 
readiness of alternatives for medical and industrial 
applications, and the Federal Government's role in promoting 
alternative technologies. Therefore, the Committee directs the 
Comptroller General to examine the following questions: (1) 
What high-risk radioactive isotopes used for medical and 
industrial applications have potential non-radioisotopic 
alternatives and what is known about the readiness of the 
alternative technology? (2) What barriers exist to greater use 
of non-radioisotopic alternatives and what can be done to 
reduce or eliminate these barriers? For example, to what extent 
do private companies bear the cost of disposing of radioactive 
material, and how do these costs affect adoption of non-
radioisotopic alternative technologies? (3) What is the current 
status of Federal activities relating to alternative non-
radioisotopic technologies, including NNSA's program for 
replacing radioactive materials, NRC's potential role in the 
adoption of alternative technologies, and the status of other 
agencies efforts implementing recommendations from the 
Interagency Working Group on Alternatives to High-Activity 
Radioactive Sources? This report should be submitted to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress not 
later than two years after the enactment of this act.
    Materials Management and Minimization.--The Committee 
recommends $10,000,000 for Laboratory and Partnership Support 
to facilitate interactions between the national laboratories, 
production facilities and private companies seeking to produce 
Molybdenum-99 without the use of high-enriched uranium.
    The Committee recognizes that in order to meet the 
nonproliferation goals set forth in AMIPA, it is necessary that 
the domestic private sector has delivered to market a rate of 
production that has displaced imported Molybdenum-99 and 
eliminated domestic shortages as defined by the Department of 
Energy's Cooperative Agreement grant program. Further, the 
Committee encourages the Department of Energy to budget future 
Cooperative Agreement grant dollars to recipients capable of 
meeting this goal by the end of Fiscal Year 2022.
    Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Research and 
Development.--The Committee recommends $524,749,000 for Defense 
Nuclear Nonproliferation Research and Development. The 
Committee supports a robust research and development capability 
to support nonproliferation initiatives. Within available funds 
for Proliferation Detection, the Committee encourages 
collaboration on the Enhanced Capabilities for Subcritical 
Experiments project to deploy capabilities that yield 
additional insights in this area.
    Proliferation of illicit nuclear materials and weapons 
continues to be a high-consequence threat, and our ability to 
detect the production and movement of these materials is 
vitally important. Research and development in this area is 
especially important. The Committee recommends not less than 
$22,500,000 for the Nonproliferation Stewardship Program and 
supports the strategic review for how the program can address 
gaps in the proliferation detection architecture, as well as 
testbed development in 2020. The Committee recommendation 
supports continued research and development of novel enrichment 
technologies to support nonproliferation goals, and recommends 
$7,500,000 for this purpose. The Committee also supports 
exploration and development of material disposal technologies, 
and recommends up to $10,000,000 for this purpose.
    Low Enriched Uranium for Naval Applications.--Within 
available funds for Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Research 
and Development, the Committee recommends $15,000,000 for 
Advanced Low Enriched Uranium Fuel Research and Development for 
the national laboratories to develop low-enriched fuels that 
could replace highly enriched uranium for naval applications. 
Consistent with section 7319 of title 10, United States Code, 
this funding is recommended within the Defense Nuclear 
Nonproliferation account. This work shall be managed within 
Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation.
    Nuclear Counterterrorism and Incident Response.--Within 30 
days after enactment of this Act, NNSA shall brief the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress on the 
current status, cost, scope, and schedule of the Capability 
Forward Initiative.

                             Naval Reactors

Appropriations, 2019....................................  $1,788,618,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................   1,648,396,000
Committee recommendation................................   1,648,396,000

    The Committee recommends $1,648,396,000 for Naval Reactors, 
the same as the budget request. The Committee's recommendation 
fully funds important national priorities, including the 
Columbia-class replacement submarine design and the prototype 
refueling. Naval Reactors currently relies on high-enriched 
uranium from weapons that have been removed from the stockpile 
to fuel the Navy's aircraft carriers and submarines. The 
Committee encourages Naval Reactors to continue working with 
the NNSA to ensure there is a long-term plan that meets the 
Navy's needs for high-enriched uranium.
    Naval Reactors has an exceptional program for self-
assessment and causal analysis. The Committee directs Naval 
Reactors to assist the Weapons Program to evaluate a recent 
technical problem to determine the root causes and to identify 
corrective actions.

               COLUMBIA-CLASS REACTOR SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommends $75,500,000 for Columbia-Class 
Reactor Systems Development. Columbia-class submarines are 
vital to maintain our survivable deterrent. The Committee 
remains concerned about on-time delivery of the first Columbia-
Class submarine, in part because Naval Reactors claims to have 
the same amount of schedule margin despite multiple challenges 
in the propulsion plant. The Committee directs Naval Reactors 
to provide quarterly updates to the Committees on 
Appropriations for both Houses of Congress on the progress of 
the propulsion plant.

                       NAVAL REACTORS DEVELOPMENT

    The Committee recommends $516,205,000 for Naval Reactors 
Development. Within the available funds, the Committee 
recommends $85,480,000 for the Advanced Test Reactor. The 
Committee directs Naval Reactors to provide a report on its 
projected test needs in the Advanced Test Reactor for the next 
15 years to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress within 90 days after enactment of this act.

                        S8G PROTOTYPE REFUELING

    The Committee recommends $170,000,000 for S8G Prototype 
Refueling, an increase of $15,000,000 above the budget request. 
The Committee recognizes the importance of on-time completion 
of the prototype refueling, and places higher priority on this 
project than research and development for future reactor 
designs.

                              CONSTRUCTION

    The Committee recommends $282,600,000 for Construction. 
Within available funds, the Committee recommends $238,000,000 
for the Spent Fuel Handling Facility in Idaho.

                     Federal Salaries and Expenses

Appropriations, 2019....................................    $410,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................     434,699,000
Committee recommendation................................     434,699,000

    The Committee recommends $434,699,000 for Federal Salaries 
and Expenses, the same as the budget request. The Committee 
recognizes the importance of recruiting and retaining the 
highly-skilled personnel needed to meet NNSA's important 
mission. Chronic underfunding in this account has led to 
understaffing across multiple areas, even as overall NNSA 
workload has increased. In order to remedy the situation, NNSA 
needs to hire an adequate number of personnel with the right 
skills mix. The Committee directs NNSA to brief the Committees 
on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress quarterly on the 
status of hiring and retention, how it is utilizing its special 
hiring authority, and actions it is taking to streamline hiring 
of Federal employees.

                     Defense Environmental Cleanup

Appropriations, 2019....................................  $6,024,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................   5,506,501,000
Committee recommendation................................   6,226,000,000

    The Committee recommendation for Defense Environmental 
Cleanup is $6,226,000,000, an increase of $719,499,000 above 
the budget request. Within available funds, the Department is 
directed to fund the hazardous waste worker training program at 
$10,000,000.
    Future Budget Requests.--The Committee directs the 
Department to include out-year funding projections in the 
annual budget request for Environmental Management, and an 
estimate of the total cost and time to complete each site.
    Richland.--As a signatory to the Tri-Party Agreement, the 
Department of Energy is required to meet specific compliance 
milestones toward the cleanup of the Hanford site. Among other 
things, the Department committed to provide the funding 
necessary to enable full compliance with its cleanup 
milestones. Unfortunately, if the Department's fiscal year 2020 
budget request were enacted, future fiscal year Tri-Party 
Agreement milestones could be at risk, threatening high-risk 
cleanup projects near the City of Richland, Washington and the 
economically and environmentally important Columbia River. The 
Committee recognizes that significant progress has been made at 
the Hanford Site. However, because the Department's budget 
request could slow or halt critical cleanup work and threaten 
the Department's compliance with its legal obligations under 
the Tri-Party Agreement, the Committee recommends $900,223,000 
for Richland Operations. Additional funding is provided for 
cleanup of the 300-296 waste site under the 324 Building, risk 
reduction activities associated with legacy waste sites, site-
wide infrastructure, and community and regulatory support. 
Within available funds for Central Plateau Remediation, the 
Committee redirects $11,800,000 in prior year funds from the 
Containerized Sludge Removal (Project 15-D-401) to replace and 
upgrade power supply infrastructure in support of direct feed 
low-activity waste operations.
    Within available funds, the Department recommends not less 
than $8,5000,000 for the Hazardous Materials Management and 
Emergency Response facilities. Further, within available funds, 
the Department is directed to carry out maintenance and public 
safety efforts at the Manhattan Project National Historical 
Park, including the B Reactor, including facility improvements 
needed to expand public access and interpretive programs. 
Within available funds the Department is directed to support 
the Hanford Workforce Engagement Center to provide education 
and advocacy to current and former Hanford employees on all 
available Federal and State compensation programs. None of the 
Richland Operations funds shall be used to directly carry out 
waste removal or treatment activities within the Office of 
River Protection's tank farms.
    NNSA Sites.--The Committee directs the Department to 
provide a plan for decommissioning the full suite of excess 
facilities at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory over the 
next ten years. The plan will identify specific facilities; key 
interfaces with the NNSA including timing of facility cleanout 
and transfer; and baseline cost, scope, and schedule by year 
for each facility. The Department shall submit the plan to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress not 
later than 180 days after enactment of this act.
    Oak Ridge Reservation.--The Committee recommends 
$450,000,000 for the Oak Ridge Reservation.
    The Committee is disappointed in the lack of progress in 
issuing the Record of Decision for the new landfill, and 
recommends no funding to continue the preliminary design until 
agreement is reached on the Record of Decision. Further, the 
Department is directed to perform an evaluation of the cost of 
onsite disposal compared to offsite disposal, including the 
economic impact to the local community, and brief the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress within 
90 days after enactment of this act.
    The Committee recommends $2,700,000 for Community and 
Regulatory Support, but none of these funds shall be applied to 
the Federal Facilities Agreement grant.
    Additional funds above the budget request are recommended 
to address the growing backlog of deferred maintenance 
associated with Environmental Management owned facilities. The 
Department should also focus on the cleanup of excess 
contaminated facilities, many of which are on the Department's 
list of high-risk facilities, to reduce threats to worker 
safety and health and to provide for future use.
    U-233 Disposition Program.--The Committee recommends 
$55,000,000 for the disposition of material in Building 3019. 
Removal of legacy material from this building, an aging 
facility in the heart of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory 
central campus, must remain a high priority for the Department. 
Removal of the Uranium-233 will enable the overall security 
posture at the laboratory to be relaxed, which will reduce 
costs, eliminate nuclear safety issues, and make the campus 
more conducive to collaborative science. The Committee supports 
the Department's current approach to expedite the disposition 
of material in Building 3019, using a public-private 
partnership that will reduce the overall cost of cleanup.
    Mercury Treatment Facility.--The Committee recommends 
$70,000,000 to complete construction of the Outfall 200 Mercury 
Treatment Facility. Remediation of mercury contamination at the 
Oak Ridge Reservation is an important precursor to full site 
remediation. Reducing the mercury being released into the East 
Fork of Poplar Creek continues to be among the highest 
priorities for the Environmental Management program.
    Office of River Protection.--The Committee recommends 
$1,616,000,000 for the Office of River Protection. Funds above 
the budget request are provided to continue tank waste 
retrievals and design and construct facilities necessary to 
meet near-term waste treatment goals. Funds are also provided 
to resume full engineering, procurement, and construction work 
on the High-Level Waste Treatment Facility; to continue design 
and engineering on the Pre-Treatment Facility; and to ensure 
compliance with the 2016 Consent Decree and Tri-Party Agreement 
milestones. Funds that support the Waste Treatment Plant 
project are provided separately for: (1) Low-Activity Waste 
Treatment Facility, Analytical Laboratory, and Balance of 
Facilities; (2) High-Level Waste Treatment Facility; (3) Pre-
Treatment Facility; and (4) Low Activity Waste Pretreatment 
System.
    The Committee recognizes the Department of Energy's efforts 
to improve working conditions in the tank farms and to address 
chemical vapor exposures by implementing recommendations from 
the 2014 Hanford Tank Vapor Assessment Report. The Committee is 
aware of three subsequent reviews conducted by the Department's 
Office of the Inspector General and Office of Enterprise 
Assessments, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety 
and Health. Within available funds in the Tank Farms Activities 
control point, the Department is directed to continue ongoing 
work to address chemical vapor exposures, implement 
recommendations from the three additional reviews, and maintain 
a safe work environment for Hanford employees.
    The Committee notes the budget request included a specific 
line item for the test bed initiative, also called the low-
level waste offsite disposal, following direction provided in 
the fiscal year 2019 Energy and Water Development 
Appropriations Act. The recommendation provides not more than 
$10,000,000 for this effort.
    Savannah River Site.--The Committee recommends 
$1,469,632,000 for the Savannah River site. Within available 
funds, $3,000,000 is for disposition of spent fuel from the 
High Flux Isotope Reactor, $11,249,000 is for Community and 
Regulatory Support, and $50,000,000 is for the Advanced 
Manufacturing Collaborative.
    Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.--Funds above the budget 
request are provided to purchase electric-powered mining 
equipment to improve mine air quality and maximize the capacity 
of ventilation infrastructure.
    Technology Development and Demonstration.--The Committee 
recommends $25,000,000 for Technology Development and 
Demonstration. The Committee supports the Department's efforts 
to expand technology development and demonstration to address 
its long-term and technically complex cleanup challenges. 
Within the amount recommended, not less than $5,000,000 is 
recommended for work on qualification, testing and research to 
advance the state-of-the-art on containment ventilation 
systems. Further, the Department is directed to take the 
necessary steps to implement and competitively award a 
cooperative university affiliated research center for that 
purpose.
    Within the amount recommended, not less than $5,000,000 is 
recommended to fund the existing cooperative agreement with the 
Consortium for Risk Evaluation with Stakeholder Participation 
[CRESP] and not less than $5,000,000 is recommended for 
research and development of robotics to enhance worker safety.

                        Other Defense Activities

Appropriations, 2019....................................    $860,292,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................   1,035,339,000
Committee recommendation................................     895,097,000

    The Committee recommends $895,097,000 for Other Defense 
Activities, a decrease of $140,242,000 below the budget 
request. Within available funds, the Committee recommends 
$271,000,000 for Specialized Security Activities. The Committee 
does not support the administration's request to move funding 
for formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program [FUSRAP] to 
the Office of Legacy Management, so there is no funding for 
that purpose included within Other Defense Activities. Within 
the available funds for Environment, Health and Safety, the 
Committee recommends not less than $1,000,000 for the 
Epidemiologic Study of One Million U.S. Radiation Workers and 
Veterans, which was originally approved by the Office of 
Science in 2012.
    The Committee remains concerned with the implementation of 
Order 140.1, Interface with the Defense Nuclear Facilities 
Safety Board [DNFSB], and the potential impacts on the ability 
of the DNFSB to carry out its Congressionally-mandated 
responsibilities. To ensure DNFSB can continue to meet its 
statuary oversight responsibilities as well as help restore 
credibility with the local communities, the Secretary is 
directed to collaborate with the DNFSB to address the board's 
specific concerns with Order 140.1, and to demonstrate again a 
shared focus on adequate protection of public health and 
safety.

                    POWER MARKETING ADMINISTRATIONS

    No funds are recommended to divest transmission assets of 
the Power Marketing Administrations [PMA]. The Committee 
reminds the Department of the prohibition on studying transfer 
of PMA assets in Public Law 99-349.
    CBO has continued to raise questions about the current 
receipt authority provided in this and prior year 
appropriations acts to create carryover of unobligated balances 
for purchase power and wheeling expenditures [PPW]. Since the 
scoring for PPW receipts has historically equaled expenses as a 
result of a 2001 scoring agreement, the Committee continues to 
be unable to recommend the full budget request for PPW expenses 
for the Southeastern Power Administration, Southwestern Power 
Administration, or Western Area Power Administration due to CBO 
scoring. The Committee recommends the full amount for PPW 
expenses that CBO has estimated will be spent for those 
purposes in fiscal year 2020, which is approximately 
$200,000,000 lower (in the aggregate) than the budget request. 
The Committee will continue to work to resolve the differences 
in the CBO and administration estimates for PPW expenses.

    The Committee recommends a net appropriation of $0 for the 
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission [FERC].
    The Committee encourages FERC to prioritize meaningful 
opportunities for public engagement and coordination with State 
and local governments in the Federal permitting and review 
processes of energy infrastructure proposals. Specifically, 
review processes should remain transparent and consistent, and 
ensure the health, safety, and security of the environment and 
each affected community.
    The Committee directs FERC, within 90 days of enactment of 
this act, to provide a study and report to the Committees on 
Appropriations of both Houses of Congress outlining the 
barriers and opportunities for high voltage transmission 
delivery, including over the Nation's transportation corridors. 
The report shall examine the reliability and resilience 
benefits, permitting barriers, and any barriers in State or 
Federal policy or markets.

                                                                  DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

                          INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

    The budget request again proposes to eliminate the Delta 
Regional Authority, Denali Commission, and Northern Border 
Regional Commission. The budget requests funding to conduct 
closeout of the agencies in fiscal year 2020. The Committee 
strongly opposes the termination of these agencies, and 
recommends funding to continue their activities. The 
administration shall continue all activities funded by this 
act, as well as follow directive language included in this 
report. No funds shall be used for the planning of or 
implementation of termination of these agencies.

                    Appalachian Regional Commission

Appropriations, 2019....................................    $165,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................     165,000,000
Committee recommendation................................     175,000,000

    The Committee recommends $175,000,000 for the Appalachian 
Regional Commission [ARC], an increase of $10,000,000 above the 
budget request.
    Further, the Committee recommends not less than $16,000,000 
shall be for a program of industrial site and workforce 
development in Southern and South Central Appalachia, focused 
primarily on the automotive supplier sector and the aviation 
sector. Up to $13,500,000 of that amount is recommended for 
activities in Southern Appalachia. The funds shall be 
distributed to States that have distressed counties in Southern 
and South Central Appalachia using the ARC Area Development 
Formula.
    Within available funding, the Committee recommends 
$16,000,000 for a program of basic infrastructure improvements 
in distressed counties in Central Appalachia. Funds shall be 
distributed according to ARC's distressed counties formula and 
shall be in addition to the regular allocation to distressed 
counties.
    Within available funds, the Committee recommends up to 
$10,000,000 to implement a regionally competitive pilot 
initiative to address the substance abuse crisis that 
disproportionally affects Appalachia. Substance abuse and the 
opioid crisis have uniquely affected the Appalachian region, 
and the Commission is well placed to respond to the economic 
impacts of this crisis through its existing programs. However, 
although it has the authority to address the impacts of the 
crisis, it has not yet done so by changing its formulas for 
distress and need. The Commission currently uses an index-based 
classification system to compare each county in the nation with 
national averages on three economic indicators-three-year 
average unemployment rates, per capita market income, and 
poverty rates--and then classifies those counties within one of 
five economic status designations: distressed, at-risk, 
transitional, competitive, or attainment. In determining a 
classification system for the basis of providing substance 
abuse grants, the Committee encourages the Commission to 
consider data from the Centers for Disease Control and other 
data on overdose and overdose death rates.
    Within available funds, the Committee recommends 
$50,000,000 for the Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce 
and Economic Revitalization [POWER] Initiative to support 
communities, primarily in Appalachia, that have been adversely 
impacted by the closure of coal-powered generating plants and a 
declining coal industry by providing resources for economic 
diversification, job creation, job training, and other 
employment services. The Committee recommends $83,000,000 for 
base funds. Within available funds, $10,000,000 is provided for 
a program of high-speed broadband deployment in economically 
distressed counties within the Central, North Central, and 
Northern Appalachian regions, in the Commission's jurisdiction, 
to diversify and enhance regional business development.

Budget estimate, 2020...................................      29,450,000
Committee recommendation................................      31,000,000

    The Committee recommends $31,000,000 for the Defense 
Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, an increase of $1,550,000 
above the budget request. Congress permanently authorized the 
Inspector General for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to 
serve as the Inspector General for the Defense Nuclear 
Facilities Safety Board. The Committee recommendation includes 
$1,171,000 within the Office of Inspector General of the 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission to perform these services.

                        Delta Regional Authority

Appropriations, 2019....................................     $25,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................       2,500,000
Committee recommendation................................      30,000,000

    The Committee recommends $30,000,000 for the Delta Regional 
Authority [DRA], an increase of $27,500,000 above the budget 
request.
    Within available funds, not less than $15,000,000 is 
recommended for flood control, basic public infrastructure 
development and transportation improvements, which shall be 
allocated separate from the State formula funding method. The 
Committee does not include a statutory waiver with regard to 
DRA's priority of funding, and directs DRA to focus on 
activities relating to basic public infrastructure and 
transportation infrastructure before allocating funding toward 
other priority areas.

                           Denali Commission

Appropriations, 2019....................................     $15,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................       7,300,000
Committee recommendation................................      15,000,000

    The Committee recommends $15,000,000 for the Denali 
Commission, an increase of $7,700,000 above the budget request. 
The Denali Commission is a Federal-State partnership 
responsible for promoting infrastructure development, job 
training, and other economic support services in rural areas 
throughout Alaska.

                  Northern Border Regional Commission

Appropriations, 2019....................................     $20,000,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................         850,000
Committee recommendation................................      25,000,000

    The Committee recommends $25,000,000 for the Northern 
Border Regional Commission, an increase of $24,150,000 above 
the budget request. Within available funds, not less than 
$4,000,000 is recommended for initiatives that seek to address 
the decline in forest-based economies throughout the region and 
$500,000 is recommended for the State Capacity Building Grant 
Program authorized in the 2018 Farm Bill.

Appropriations, 2019....................................    $127,873,000
Budget estimate, 2020...................................     159,096,000
Committee recommendation................................     117,767,000

    The Committee recommends $841,236,000 for the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission [Commission], a decrease of $66,529,000 
from the budget request. The Committee's recommendation 
requires the use of $40,000,000 of unobligated balances from 
prior appropriations. This amount is offset by estimated 
revenues of $723,469,000, resulting in a net appropriation of 
$117,767,000. In developing this recommendation, the Committee 
has consulted with the Commission to ensure it maintains its 
gold-standard health and safety mission while reducing low-
priority work.
    Advanced Nuclear Reactor Regulatory Infrastructure.--The 
recommendation includes $15,478,000 for the development of 
regulatory infrastructure for advanced nuclear technologies, 
which is not subject to the Commission's general fee recovery 
collection requirements. The Committee encourages the 
Commission to incorporate nuclear safeguards and security 
requirements into its development of the advanced reactor 
regulatory infrastructure and to work with the Department of 
Energy, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and other 
groups in the formulation of its licensing requirements.
    Budget Control Points.--The recommendation includes budget 
control points for fiscal year 2020 to ensure the Commission's 
budget execution follows congressional intent. These budget 
control points are included in the table following the heading 
of Office of Inspector General. As it did for fiscal year 2019, 
the Committee includes statutory language incorporating the new 
control points by reference into law, and notes that any 
breaches are subject to the reporting requirements and remedies 
of the Antideficiency Act contained in title 31 of the United 
States Code.
    Budget Execution Plan.--The Commission is directed to 
provide the Committee with a specific budget execution plan no 
later than 30 days after the enactment of this act. This plan 
shall provide details at the product line level within each of 
the control points, as applicable, included in the table after 
the Office of Inspector General heading below.
    Reprogramming Authority.--Section 402 continues 
reprogramming authority included in the Energy and Water 
Development Appropriations Act, 2019, for the Commission 
between the budget control points, subject to prior 
congressional approval, with a provision made for emergency 
circumstances. This reprogramming authority supersedes the 
Commission's existing guidance on internal reprogrammings.
    Unobligated Balances from Prior Appropriations.--The 
Committee notes that the Commission carries unobligated 
balances from appropriations received prior to fiscal year 
2020. The Committee's recommendation requires the use of 
$40,000,000 of these balances, derived from fee-based 
activities. Because the Commission has already collected fees 
corresponding to these activities in prior years, the Committee 
does not include these funds within the fee base calculation 
for determining authorized revenues, and does not provide 
authority to collect additional offsetting receipts for their 
use. The Committee notes that any remaining unobligated 
balances carried forward from prior years are subject to the 
reprogramming guidelines in section 402, and shall only be used 
to supplement appropriations consistent with those guidelines.
    Integrated University Program.--The Committee recommends 
$15,000,000 for the Integrated University Program, of which not 
less than $5,000,000 is for grants to support research projects 
that do not align with programmatic missions but are critical 
to maintaining the discipline of nuclear science and 
engineering.
    Reporting Requirement.--The Committee directs the 
Commission to continue the reporting required in the 
explanatory statement for the Energy and Water Development 
Appropriations Act, 2019, relating to progress against the 
Commission's licensing goals and right-sizing commitments.
    Rulemaking.--The Committee directs the Commission to 
provide in its annual budget request and the semi-annual report 
to Congress on licensing and regulatory activities a list of 
all rulemaking activities planned, to include their priority 
and schedule.
    Reevaluation of Medical Event Reporting.--The Committee is 
aware of evidence demonstrating the prevalence of 
extravasations in nuclear medicine procedures within and across 
healthcare providers. Extravasations of diagnostic 
radiopharmaceuticals negatively affect the sensitivity and 
quantification of nuclear medicine scans. Extravasations can 
affect disease staging and treatment assessment, result in 
unnecessary invasive procedures and additional radiation 
exposure, and lead to higher costs for patients and payers. The 
Committee supports the work of the Commission and the Advisory 
Committee on Medical Use of Isotopes to consider new evidence 
in evaluating whether all radiotracer extravasations should be 
reportable as medical events under 10 C.F.R. Part 35. Not later 
than 90 days after the enactment of this Act, the Commission 
shall provide to the Committees on Appropriations of both 
Houses of Congress a report on updates to injection quality 
monitoring, classification, and reporting requirements 
regarding extravasations.
    Commission Workforce.--The NRC has undergone substantial 
change in the past 6 years as it has reduced its budget and 
workforce to reflect the changing nuclear power industry. The 
fee-based budget has declined by 15 percent, and the agency 
workforce has declined by 21 percent. The demographics of the 
agency have shifted as a result of these changes. By the end of 
2022, roughly 40 percent of the agency workforce will be 
eligible to retire, but at the end of fiscal year 2018, only 
two percent of the agency's workforce was below the age of 30. 
It is imperative the Commission strategically invest resources 
for recruiting, hiring, and training scientists and engineers 
to accomplish future work, advance a twenty-first century 
workforce, and ensure the capacity to meet its mission today 
and in the future. The Committee supports the Commission's 
efforts to ensure that it has sufficient capable staff so that 
there can be a future for nuclear power. The Committee 
encourages the Commission to identify needed staff resources in 
future budget requests.
    Training and Experience Requirements for 
Radiopharmaceuticals.--The Committee supports the Commission's 
ongoing effort to revise its regulations for training and 
experience requirements for radiopharmaceuticals requiring a 
written directive. The Committee encourages the Commission to 
modernize its regulations so more medical personnel can be 
trained to administer lifesaving cancer drugs.
