     assistance or as nonproject sector assistance, that country 
     shall be required to maintain such funds in a separate 
     account and not commingle them with any other funds.
       (2) Applicability of Other Provisions of Law.--Such funds 
     may be obligated and expended notwithstanding provisions of 
     law which are inconsistent with the nature of this assistance

       (a) any financial incentive to a business enterprise 
     currently located in the United States for the purpose of 
     inducing such an enterprise to relocate outside the United 
     States if such incentive or inducement is likely to reduce

     United States because United States production is being 
     replaced by such enterprise outside the United States;
       (b) assistance for the purpose of establishing or

     1974, of workers in the recipient country, including any

                         CLEAN COAL TECHNOLOGY

       Sec. 537. (a) Findings.--The Congress finds as follows:
       (1) The United States is the world leader in the 
     development of environmental technologies, particularly clean 
     coal technology.
       (2) Severe pollution problems affecting people in 
     developing countries, and the serious health problems that 
     result from such pollution, can be effectively addressed 
     through the application of United States technology.
       (3) During the next century, developing countries, 
     particularly countries in Asia such as China and India, will 
     dramatically increase their consumption of electricity, and 
     low quality coal will be a major source of fuel for power 
     generation.
       (4) Without the use of modern clean coal technology, the 
     resultant pollution will cause enormous health and 
     environmental problems leading to diminished economic 
     growth in developing countries and, thus, diminished 
     United States exports to those growing markets.
       (b) Statement of Policy.--It is the policy of the United 
     States to promote the export of United States clean coal 
     technology. In furtherance of that policy, the Secretary of 
     State, the Secretary of the Treasury (acting through the 
     United States executive directors to international financial 
     institutions), the Secretary of Energy, and the Administrator 
     of the United States Agency for International Development 
     (USAID) should, as appropriate, vigorously promote the use of 
     United States clean coal technology in environmental and 
     energy infrastructure programs, projects and activities. 
     Programs, projects and activities for which the use of such 
     technology should be considered include reconstruction 
     assistance for the Balkans, activities carried out by the 
     Global Environment Facility,

[[Page H10769]]

     and activities funded from USAID's Development Credit 
     Authority.

     to paragraph (1) shall be effective for no more than a period 
     of 6 months at a time and shall not apply beyond 12 months 
     after the enactment of this Act.


policy on terminating the arab league boycott of israel and normalizing 
                         relations with israel

       Sec. 539. It is the sense of the Congress that--
       (1) the Arab League countries should immediately and 
     publicly renounce the primary boycott of Israel and the 
     secondary and tertiary boycott of American firms that have 
     commercial ties with Israel and should normalize their 
     relations with Israel;
       (2) the decision by the Arab League in 1997 to reinstate 
     the boycott against Israel was deeply troubling and 
     disappointing;
       (3) the fact that only three Arab countries maintain full 
     diplomatic relations with Israel is also of deep concern;
       (4) the Arab League should immediately rescind its decision 
     on the boycott and its members should develop normal 
     relations with their neighbor Israel; and
       (5) the President should--
       (A) take more concrete steps to encourage vigorously Arab 
     League countries to renounce publicly the primary boycotts of 
     Israel and the secondary and tertiary boycotts of American 
     firms that have commercial relations with Israel and to 
     normalize their relations with Israel;
       (B) take into consideration the participation of any 
     recipient country in the primary boycott of Israel and the 
     secondary and tertiary boycotts of American firms that have 
     commercial relations with Israel when determining whether to 
     sell weapons to said country;
       (C) report to Congress annually on the specific steps being 
     taken by the United States and the progress achieved to bring 
     about a public renunciation of the Arab primary boycott of 
     Israel and the secondary and tertiary boycotts of American 
     firms that have commercial relations with Israel and to 
     expand the process of normalizing ties between Arab League 
     countries and Israel; and
       (D) encourage the allies and trading partners of the United 
     States to enact laws prohibiting businesses from complying 
     with the boycott and penalizing businesses that do comply.

     of justice in countries in Latin America and the Caribbean 
     and in other regions consistent with the provisions of 
     section 534(b) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, except 
     that programs to enhance protection of participants in 
     judicial cases may be conducted notwithstanding section 660

     Organizations.--Restrictions contained in this or any other 
     Act with respect to assistance for a country shall not be

     Act to carry out the provisions of chapters 1, 10, 11, and 12 
     of part I and chapter 4 of part II of the Foreign Assistance 
     Act of 1961, and from funds appropriated under the heading 
     ``Assistance for Eastern Europe and the Baltic States'': 
     Provided, That the President shall take into consideration, 
     in any case in which a restriction on assistance would be 
     applicable but for this subsection, whether assistance in 
     support of programs of nongovernmental organizations is in 
     the national interest of the United States: Provided further, 
     That before using the authority of this subsection to furnish 
     assistance in support of programs of nongovernmental 
     organizations, the President shall notify the Committees on

     for furnishing such assistance: Provided further, That

       (b) Public Law 480.--During fiscal year 2001, restrictions 
     contained in this or any other Act with respect to assistance

     carry out title I of such Act and made available pursuant to 
     this subsection may be obligated or expended except as

       (c) Exception.--This section shall not apply--
       (1) with respect to section 620A of the Foreign Assistance 
     Act of 1961 or any comparable provision of law prohibiting 
     assistance to countries that support international terrorism; 
     or
       (2) with respect to section 116 of the Foreign Assistance 
     Act of 1961 or any comparable provision of law prohibiting 
     assistance to countries that violate internationally 
     recognized human rights.


                                earmarks

       Sec. 542. (a) Funds appropriated by this Act which are 
     earmarked may be reprogrammed for other programs within the 
     same account notwithstanding the earmark if compliance with 
     the earmark is made impossible by operation of any provision 
     of this or any other Act or, with respect to a country with 
     which the United States has an agreement providing the United 
     States with base rights or base access in that country, if 
     the President determines that the recipient for which funds 
     are earmarked has significantly reduced its military or 
     economic cooperation with the United States since the 
     enactment of the Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and 
     Related Programs Appropriations Act, 1991; however, before 
     exercising the authority of this subsection with regard to a 
     base rights or base access country which has significantly 
     reduced its military or economic cooperation with the United 
     States, the President shall consult with, and shall provide a 
     written policy justification to the Committees on 
     Appropriations: Provided, That any such reprogramming shall 
     be subject to the regular notification procedures of the 
     Committees on Appropriations: Provided further, That

     shall be made available under the same terms and conditions 
     as originally provided.
       (b) In addition to the authority contained in subsection 
     (a), the original period of availability of funds 
     appropriated by this Act and administered by the Agency for 
     International Development that are earmarked for particular 
     programs or activities by this or any other Act shall be 
     extended for an additional fiscal year if the Administrator 
     of such agency determines and reports promptly to the 
     Committees on Appropriations that the termination of 
     assistance to a country or a significant change in 
     circumstances makes it unlikely that such earmarked funds can 
     be obligated during the original period of availability: 
     Provided, That such earmarked funds that are continued 
     available for an additional fiscal year shall be obligated 
     only for the purpose of such earmark.


                         ceilings and earmarks

       Sec. 543. Ceilings and earmarks contained in this Act shall

       Sec. 544. No part of any appropriation contained in this 
     Act shall be used for publicity or propaganda purposes within

     extent practicable, all agriculture commodities, equipment 
     and products purchased

[[Page H10770]]

     with funds made available in this Act should be American-
     made.
       (c) In providing financial assistance to, or entering into 
     any contract with, any entity using funds made available in 
     this Act, the head of each Federal agency, to the greatest 
     extent practicable, shall provide to such entity a notice 
     describing the statement made in subsection (b) by the 
     Congress.
       (d) The Secretary of the Treasury shall report to Congress 
     annually on the efforts of the heads of each Federal agency 
     and the United States directors of international financial 
     institutions (as referenced in section 514) in complying with 
     this sense of the Congress.


           prohibition of payments to united nations members

       Sec. 546. None of the funds appropriated or made available 
     pursuant to this Act for carrying out the Foreign Assistance 
     Act of 1961, may be used to pay in whole or in part any

       (ii) policies seeking to prevent loans from displacing 
     private sector financing;
       (iii) policies requiring that loans other than project 
     loans must be disbursed--

       (I) on the basis of specific prior reforms; or
       (II) incrementally upon implementation of specific reforms 
     after initial disbursement;

       (iv) policies seeking to minimize the number of projects 
     receiving financing that would displace a population 
     involuntarily or be to the detriment of the people or culture 
     of the area into which the displaced population is to be 
     moved;
       (v) policies vigorously promoting open markets and 
     liberalization of trade in goods and services;

     appropriate qualitative and quantitative indicators to

     funds are being diverted for purposes other than the purpose 
     for which the financing was intended;
       (ii) policies seeking to ensure that financing by the Fund 
     normally serves as a catalyst for private sector financing 
     and does not displace such financing;
       (iii) policies requiring that financing must be disbursed--

       (I) on the basis of specific prior reforms; or
       (II) incrementally upon implementation of specific reforms 
     after initial disbursement;

       (iv) policies vigorously promoting open markets and

     financing; and
       (vi) policies providing for the use, in conjunction with 
     the Bank, of appropriate qualitative and quantitative 
     indicators to measure progress toward graduation from 
     receiving financing on concessionary terms, including an 
     estimated timetable by which countries may graduate over the 
     next 15 years.
       (2) Exception.--In the event that the Secretary cannot 
     certify that a policy described in paragraph (1)(A) or (1)(B) 
     is being implemented, the Secretary shall, not later than 30 
     days after the date of enactment of this Act, submit a report 
     to the appropriate congressional committees on the progress, 
     if any, made by the Bank or the Fund in adopting and

     strengthen the bank's procedures and management controls 
     intended to ensure that funds disbursed by the bank to 
     borrowing countries are used as intended and in a manner that 
     complies with the conditions of the bank's loan to that 
     country.

[[Page H10777]]

     date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall submit to 
     the appropriate congressional committees a report evaluating 
     the progress made toward achieving the objectives of 
     subsection (a), including a description of--
       (1) any progress made in improving the supervision, 
     monitoring, and auditing of programs and projects supported 
     by each multilateral development bank, in order to identify 
     and reduce bribery and corruption;
       (2) any progress made in developing each multilateral

     assistance;
       (3) country-specific anticorruption programs supported by 
     each multilateral development bank;

     the appropriate congressional committees on--
       (1) the actions taken by recipient countries, as a result 
     of the assistance allocated to them by the multilateral

     802(b), to strengthen governance and reduce the opportunity 
     for bribery and corruption; and
       (2) how International Development Association-financed 
     projects contribute to the eventual graduation of a 
     representative sample of countries from reliance on financing

     assistance.
       (c) Amendment of Report on Fund.--Section 1705(a) of the 
     International Financial Institutions Act (22 U.S.C. 262r-
     4(a)) is amended--
       (1) by inserting ``(1)'' before ``the progress''; and

     history of debt relief programs led by, or coordinated with, 
     international financial institutions, including but not 
     limited to--
       (1) the extent to which poor countries and the poorest-of-
     the-poor benefit from debt relief, including measurable 
     evidence of any such benefits; and
       (2) the extent to which debt relief contributes to the 
     graduation of a country from reliance on financing on 
     concessionary terms and international development assistance.

     SEC. 804. REPEAL OF BILATERAL FUNDING FOR INTERNATIONAL 
                   FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS.

       Section 209(d) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 (22 
     U.S.C. 2169(d); relating to bilateral funding for 
     international financial institutions) is repealed.
       Sec. 805. Refocused Activities of the IMF. The Bretton 
     Woods Agreement Act is amended by adding the following new 
     section--

     ``SEC. 63. PRINCIPLES FOR INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND 
                   LENDING.

       ``It is the policy of the United States to work to 
     implement reforms in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to 
     achieve the following goals:
       ``(a) Short-Term Balance of Payments Financing.--Lending 
     from the general resources of the Fund should concentrate 
     chiefly on short-term balance of payments financing.
       ``(b) Limitations on Medium-Term Financing.--Use of medium-
     term lending from the general resources of the Fund should be 
     limited to a set of well-defined circumstances, such as--
       ``(1) when a member's balance of payments problems will be 
     protracted,
       ``(2) such member has a strong structural reform program in 
     place, and
       ``(3) the member has little or no access to private sources 
     of capital.
       ``(c) Premium Pricing.--Premium pricing should be 
     introduced for lending from the general resources of the 
     Fund, for greater than 200 per centum of a member's quota in 
     the Fund, to discourage excessive use of Fund lending and to 
     encourage members to rely on private financing to the maximum 
     extent possible.
       ``(d) Redressing Misreporting of Information.--The Fund 
     should have in place and apply systematically a strong 
     framework of safeguards and measures to respond to, correct, 
     and discourage cases of misreporting of information in the 
     context of a Fund program, including--
       ``(1) Suspending Fund disbursements and ensuring that Fund 
     lending is not resumed to members that engage in serious 
     misreporting of material information until such time as 
     remedial actions and sanctions, as appropriate, have been 
     applied;
       ``(2) Ensuring that members make early repayments, where 
     appropriate, of Fund resources disbursed on the basis of 
     misreported information;
       ``(3) Making public cases of serious misreporting of 
     material information;
       ``(4) Requiring all members receiving new disbursements 
     from the Fund to undertake annually independent audits of 
     central bank financial statements and publish the resulting 
     audits; and
       ``(5) Requiring all members seeking new loans from the Fund 
     to provide to the Fund detailed information regarding their 
     internal control procedures, financial reporting and audit 
     mechanisms and, in cases where there are questions about the 
     adequacy of these systems, undertaking an on-site review and 
     identifying needed remedies.''.

               TITLE I--EXPORT AND INVESTMENT ASSISTANCE

                Export-Import Bank of the United States


                         subsidy appropriation

       The conference agreement appropriates $865,000,000 for the 
     subsidy appropriation of the Export-Import Bank instead of 
     $768,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $742,500,000 as 
     proposed by the House.


                        administrative expenses

       The conference agreement appropriates $62,000,000 for 
     administrative expenses of the Export-Import Bank instead of 
     $58,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $55,000,000 as 
     proposed by the House. The conferees also have included a 
     limitation of $30,000 on representation expenses of members 
     of the Bank's Board of Directors.
       The managers are very concerned by the Bank's recent 
     consideration of a change to its regulations that would 
     reduce the volume of U.S. exports financed by the Bank that 
     are subject to cargo preference regulations. The managers 
     direct that none of the funds provided under this heading in 
     this or prior year appropriation acts shall be used to plan, 
     finalize, or implement any notice, regulation, or change in 
     policy with regard to Public Resolution 17 (46 App. U.S.C. 
     1241-1)(1998).

                Overseas Private Investment Corporation


                           non-credit account

       The conference agreement provides $38,000,000 for 
     administrative expenses of the Overseas Private Investment 
     Corporation (OPIC) as proposed by the Senate instead of 
     $37,000,000 as proposed by the House.
       The managers urge OPIC to refrain from entering into 
     contracts involving the Palestinian Authority until the 
     Committees have been informed that contract disputes between 
     the Authority and United States corporate entities have been 
     resolved.

                      Trade and Development Agency

       The conference agreement appropriates $50,000,000 for the 
     Trade and Development Agency instead of $46,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate and the House. It does not include 
     language regarding reimbursements as proposed by the Senate.

                TITLE II--BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  Agency for International Development


                child survival and disease programs fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $963,000,000 for the 
     Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund instead of 
     $886,000,000 as

[[Page H10778]]

     proposed by the House. The Senate bill contained no provision 
     on this matter, but included regular and emergency funds for 
     these activities under ``Development Assistance'' and 
     ``Global Health''. The conference agreement also continues 
     limitations on the use of the Fund for non-project 
     assistance.
       The managers include a United States contribution to 
     UNICEF, and AID's program to promote basic education for 
     children, within the Child Survival and Disease Programs 
     Fund, as proposed by the House.
       The conference agreement includes language allocating 
     $963,000,000 among six program categories in the Child 
     Survival and Disease Programs Fund: $295,000,000 for child 
     survival and maternal health, including vaccine-preventable 
     diseases such as polio; $30,000,000 for vulnerable children; 
     $300,000,000 for HIV/AIDS; $125,000,000 for other infectious 
     diseases; $103,000,000 for children's basic education; and 
     $110,000,000 for UNICEF. The conferees expect that any change 
     proposed subsequent to the allocation as directed in bill 
     language will be subject to the requirements of section 515 
     of the Act. A full definition of these program categories and 
     their components can be found on pages 8 through 10 of House 
     Report 106-270.
       Within the child survival and maternal health program, 
     authority is provided to transfer up to $50,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate to a fund established for child 
     immunization by the Global Alliance for Vaccines and 
     Immunization (GAVI). The House bill provided authority to 
     transfer up to $37,500,000 to GAVI. The managers are 
     supportive of the GAVI and direct that the Committees be 
     informed in writing 20 days prior to the obligation of any 
     funds for GAVI on the proposed use of any U.S. contribution, 
     particularly with regard to the amount to be donated for 
     procurement of vaccines for children.
       The managers note that a large part of the vulnerable 
     children program assists AIDS orphans, who also benefit from 
     the HIV/AIDS program. Although the conference agreement does 
     not include bill language regarding funding for blind 
     children, as proposed by the Senate, the managers recommend 
     not less than $1,200,000 for assistance for blind children. 
     The managers also support a total of $5,000,000 for the 
     Kiwanis/UNICEF Iodine Deficiency program, with $2,500,000 
     from the Child Survival and Disease Programs account and 
     $2,500,000 from regional accounts for Europe and Eurasia. AID 
     is also encouraged to provide up to $2,000,000 to support 
     non-governmental organizations, such as Special Olympics, 
     that work with older children, including those with cognitive 
     disabilities and mild mental retardation, to teach life and 
     job skills. The vulnerable children program and AID's Office 
     of Private Voluntary Cooperation are encouraged to provide 
     small matching grants to American-led volunteer programs in 
     India and other nations that seek to remedy physical 
     disabilities through reconstructive surgery.
       The conference agreement includes $315,000,000 for HIV/
     AIDS, of which $300,000,000 is allocated within this account 
     and not less than $15,000,000 in other accounts and programs. 
     The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     concerning microbicides. However, the managers endorse the 
     Senate report language on microbicides and direct that not 
     less than $15,000,000 from the HIV/AIDS program and the 
     ``Development Assistance'' account be made available to the 
     Office of Health and Nutrition for microbicide research and 
     development. These funds are to be managed by the Director of 
     the HIV/AIDS Division. In addition, the managers support the 
     International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), which seeks to 
     accelerate the development and distribution of an effective 
     AIDS vaccine for use in developing countries. The managers 
     urge that not less than $10,000,000 be provided as a 
     contribution to the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative.
       In addition, the managers direct AID to make available 
     $500,000 for a proposal from the University of California at 
     San Francisco to develop detailed epidemiological HIV/AIDS 
     profiles for priority countries and an online, searchable 
     database of key comparative indicators. The managers also 
     encourage AID to collaborate with the Peace Corps' HIV/AIDS 
     initiative, especially in supporting training activities.
       The expected results of funds to develop and promote the 
     use of vaccines in developing countries will also assist 
     international travelers to endemic areas. The managers urge 
     the Department of State and AID to require staff, grantees, 
     and contractors to take all feasible steps to reduce the 
     importation of vaccine-preventible infectious diseases, such 
     as hepatitis, into the United States.
       The managers note that the Global AIDS and Tuberculosis 
     Relief Act of 2000 (P.L. 106-264) authorized that 65 percent 
     of the HIV/AIDS funding be provided through non-governmental 
     organizations (NGOs). The managers concur that NGOs, 
     including religious institutions and faith based 
     organizations, provide invaluable services in the fight 
     against HIV/AIDS. In anticipation of an increasing 
     involvement of the public sector, particularly in the areas 
     of treatment and the provision of interventions to reduce 
     mother-to-child transmission, the managers agree that 
     assistance provided through NGOs in cooperation with a 
     foreign government or using government facilities may be 
     counted against the 65 percent target in AID's strategy to 
     implement the Act.
       Within the HIV/AIDS program, authority is provided to 
     transfer $20,000,000 to the fund authorized by section 141 of 
     the Global AIDS and Tuberculosis Relief Act. The managers 
     expect the Secretary of the Treasury and the Administrator of 
     the Agency for International Development to report to the 
     Committees no later than April 30, 2001 on progress toward 
     establishment of an international AIDS Trust Fund 
     administered by the World Bank.
       The managers urge that expanded resources be made available 
     to mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) programs. As effective 
     implementation of MTCT programs will take time, during which 
     health care workers will be trained, laboratory and testing 
     facilities established, and community based care services for 
     HIV positive mothers developed, AID may not be able to meet 
     the Global AIDS Act's 8.3 percent MTCT funding target in 
     fiscal year 2001. The managers expect that USAID will achieve 
     the MTCT target by the end of fiscal year 2002.
       The conference agreement includes at least $60,000,000 from 
     all accounts to address the global health threat from 
     tuberculosis, including not less than $45,000,000 from the 
     other infectious diseases program in the Child Survival and 
     Disease Programs Fund. The managers urge AID to continue to 
     work in close collaboration with organizations such as the 
     U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the World Health 
     Organization, the Gorgas Memorial Institute, and the Global 
     STOP TB Initiative to implement effective tuberculosis 
     control programs at the local level. The managers direct AID 
     to continue and expand TB programs undertaken in cooperation 
     with federal and state governments in Mexico, especially 
     along Mexico's borders with Texas, California, Arizona, New 
     Mexico, and Guatemala.
       The other infectious diseases program also includes 
     $30,000,000 for antimicrobial resistance and infectious 
     disease surveillance, and $50,000,000 for international 
     efforts to reduce the incidence of malaria. Drug resistant 
     parasites and insecticide-resistant mosquitoes exacerbate 
     malaria transmission and place millions throughout the world 
     at risk of a crippling and often fatal disease. For this 
     reason, the managers encourage USAID to designate $2,000,000 
     to support the establishment of coordinated centers of 
     excellence for malaria research, to focus on tropical and 
     sub-tropical regions. The managers support and urge AID to 
     favorably consider proposals for a concerted approach to 
     limiting the resurgence of malaria that are submitted jointly 
     by the University of Notre Dame's Vector Biology Laboratory, 
     Tulane University's Department of Tropical Medicine in New 
     Orleans, and Latin American and African counterpart 
     institutions.
       The managers are aware that the HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis 
     crises require extraordinary efforts on the part of the U.S. 
     Government. USAID is encouraged to use, as appropriate, its 
     existing waiver authorities regarding financing and 
     procurement of goods and services, and grant making, in order 
     to expedite the provision of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis 
     assistance and enhance the efficiency of that assistance.
       The managers support and urge AID to favorably consider 
     proposals by Carelift International. The managers anticipate 
     that the ongoing, multiyear collaboration between AID and 
     Carelift International will be expanded and require 
     $7,000,000, including future year appropriations. The 
     conference agreement does not include Senate language 
     directing AID to make available to Carelift International up 
     to $7,000,000 from fiscal year 2001 funds only.
       The managers also direct AID to continue to provide the 
     Committees with a detailed annual report not later than 
     February 15, 2001, on the programs, projects, and activities 
     undertaken by the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund 
     during fiscal year 2000.
       Funds appropriated for the Child Survival and Disease 
     Programs Fund are intended to be used for programs, projects 
     and activities. Funds for administrative expenses to manage 
     Fund activities are provided in a separate account, with two 
     exceptions included in the conference agreement: authority 
     for AID's central and regional bureaus to use up to $125,000 
     from program funds for Operating Expense-funded personnel to 
     better monitor and provide oversight of the Fund; and, in 
     section 522, authority to use up to $16,000,000 to reimburse 
     other government agencies and private institutions for 
     professional services. Any proposed transfer of 
     appropriations from the Fund for administrative expenses of 
     AID under any other authority shall be subject to section 515 
     of this Act.


                         Development Assistance

       The conference agreement appropriates $1,305,000,000 for 
     ``Development Assistance'' instead of $1,258,000,000 as 
     proposed by the House and $1,368,250,000 as proposed by the 
     Senate. The Senate included funding for programs carried out 
     by the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' under its 
     ``Development Assistance'' account.
       Of the funds under this heading, the conference agreement 
     appropriates up to $12,000,000 for the Inter-American 
     Foundation and up to $16,000,000 to the African Development 
     Foundation. The House bill proposed up to $10,000,000 for the 
     Inter-American Foundation and up to $16,000,000 for the 
     African Development Foundation. The Senate amendment did not 
     propose funding for the Inter-American Foundation and 
     provided up to $14,400,000 for the African Development 
     Foundation. Section 591 of the conference agreement provides 
     the President with the

[[Page H10779]]

     authority to abolish the Inter-American Foundation during 
     fiscal year 2001.
       The Senate amendment proposed that not less than 
     $425,000,000 be made available to carry out section 104(b) of 
     the Foreign Assistance Act, regarding international 
     population planning assistance. The House addressed this 
     matter in section 586 of its bill and placed a ceiling of 
     $385,000,000 on bilateral family planning assistance. The 
     conference agreement addresses funding and restrictions for 
     international family planning in section 598.
       The conference agreement does not include language 
     contained in the Senate amendment providing that $2,500,000 
     may be transferred from this account to the ``International 
     Organizations and Programs'' account to provide a total 
     contribution of $5,000,000 to the International Fund for 
     Agricultural Development (IFAD). The conference agreement 
     provides $5,000,000 from title IV of this Act for IFAD, as 
     proposed by the House.
       The conference agreement includes bill language similar to 
     the Senate amendment that not less than $310,000,000 should 
     be provided for agriculture and rural development programs 
     through Foreign Assistance Act funds and through Support for 
     East European Development Act funds. The House bill did not 
     address this matter. The managers continue to support 
     international agriculture and rural development activities 
     and direct AID to increase funding for these important 
     programs.
       The conference agreement provides that, of the funds for 
     agriculture and rural development programs, $30,000,000 
     should be provided for biotechnology research and 
     development. The conference agreement does not include bill 
     language for the University of Missouri-St. Louis 
     International Laboratory for Tropical Agriculture 
     biotechnology program (ILTAP), as proposed by the Senate. 
     However, the managers support and urge AID to favorably 
     consider $1,000,000 for ILTAP to train scientists from 
     Southeast Asia in methods to fight diseases that threaten 
     rice, tomatoes, and cassava which the managers believe will 
     play a key role in stabilizing the food supply for the 
     region.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language for 
     the University of California, Davis, as proposed by the 
     Senate. However, the managers support and urge AID to 
     favorably consider $1,000,000 for the University of 
     California, Davis to support research and to train foreign 
     scientists in programs which address improving crop 
     agriculture in Central Africa.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language for 
     Tuskegee University, as proposed by the Senate. However, the 
     managers support and urge AID to favorably consider 
     $1,000,000 to establish a ``Center to Promote Biotechnology 
     in International Agriculture'' at Tuskegee University. This 
     center will promote extension and outreach aimed at policy 
     makers, the media, farmers, and consumers in cooperation with 
     local scientists. The emphasis should be to identify 
     agricultural genetic technology applications crucial to 
     combating hunger, malnutrition, and boosting low incomes in 
     rural areas.
       The conferees agree that Marquette University's Les Aspin 
     Center for Government, which has been carrying out training 
     programs for Africans in democracy and leadership, should 
     receive the same consideration as similar programs at other 
     Universities mentioned in the Senate report.
       The conference agreement provides that not less than 
     $2,300,000 should be made available for a core grant to the 
     International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), which is 
     similar to the Senate amendment. The House bill did not 
     address this matter. The managers strongly support the 
     fertilizer-related research and development being conducted 
     by IFDC and direct the Administrator of AID to make at least 
     $4,000,000 available to IFDC, including not less than 
     $2,300,000 for its core grant.
       The conference agreement provides not less than $5,200,000 
     for AmeriCares for the construction, rehabilitation, and 
     operation of community-based primary healthcare facilities in 
     Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
       The conference agreement provides that $500,000 should be 
     made available for support of the United States 
     Telecommunications Training Institute. The Senate amendment 
     included bill language mandating that such funds be made 
     available for this purpose. The House bill did not address 
     this matter.
       The conference agreement provides that $17,000,000 should 
     be made available for the American Schools and Hospitals 
     Abroad (ASHA) program. The Senate amendment included bill 
     language mandating that such funds be made available for this 
     purpose. The House bill did not address this matter. The 
     managers direct ASHA to give full consideration to grant 
     proposals from all qualified institutions. These may include 
     grant proposals for curriculum, staff support, and related 
     expenses and for expansion of overseas facilities owned and 
     operated by U.S. based, non-profit educational institutions. 
     No regulation, statute, or congressional directive precludes 
     ASHA funds from being utilized for these purposes.
       The conference agreement provides that not less than 
     $2,000,000 should be made available to support an 
     international media training center. The Senate amendment 
     included bill language mandating that such funds be made 
     available for this purpose. The House bill did not address 
     this matter.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     proposed in the Senate amendment which provided up to 
     $7,000,000 for Carelift International. The House bill did not 
     address this matter. The managers have addressed Carelift 
     International in the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs 
     Fund'' section of the statement of the managers.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     providing up to $1,500,000 to develop and integrate education 
     programs aimed at eliminating female genital mutilation 
     (FGM), as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House bill 
     did not address this matter. The managers direct the 
     Secretary of State to determine the prevalence of the 
     practice of FGM and the existence and enforcement of laws 
     prohibiting this practice. The Secretary shall submit to the 
     Committees on Appropriations, not later than March 1, 2001, 
     these findings and recommendations on how the United States 
     government can best work to eliminate this practice. The 
     managers direct AID to make available $1,500,000 to develop 
     and integrate into development strategies, where appropriate, 
     educational programs aimed at eliminating FGM. Further, the 
     managers direct that AID's fiscal year 2002 budget 
     justification include a narrative regarding the agency's 
     proposed budget and programs in this area.
       The managers continue to be concerned about worldwide 
     trafficking of women and children and direct AID to provide 
     not less than $2,500,000, including funds from under the 
     heading ``Independent States'', to continue and expand these 
     anti-trafficking programs.
       The managers strongly support the Collaborative Research 
     Support Programs (CRSPs), as stated in the House and Senate 
     reports. Prior to the submission of the report required by 
     section 653 of the Foreign Assistance Act, AID is directed to 
     consult with the Committees on Appropriations regarding the 
     proposed allocation of agriculture, rural development and 
     CRSPs resources.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     proposed in the Senate amendment providing $1,500,000 for 
     Habitat for Humanity International for construction of 
     housing in northern India. The House did not address this 
     matter in bill language. The managers request that the 
     Department of State coordinate with AID in determining the 
     funding responsibility for long-term assistance for Tibetan 
     refugees, including assistance to refugees residing in India. 
     In this regard, the managers would support the proposal to 
     fund the Tibetan Resettlement Project in Dehradum, India, 
     consistent with Tibetan cultural practices. These funds 
     should be in addition to those allocated for Tibetan refugees 
     in ``Migration and Refugee Assistance''.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     proposed by the Senate amendment regarding microenterprise. 
     The House bill did not address this matter. Microenterprise 
     authorization is included in Public Law 106-309.
       The managers continue to believe that protecting 
     biodiversity and tropical forests in developing countries is 
     critical to the global environment and U.S. economic 
     prosperity, especially for the agricultural and 
     pharmaceutical industries. The managers direct AID to 
     continue to work to increase overall biodiversity funding, as 
     well as funding to the Office of Environment and Natural 
     Resources, consistent with the House and Senate reports. Not 
     later than 60 days after enactment of this Act, AID shall 
     report to the Committees on Appropriations regarding the 
     proposed allocation of resources for biodiversity on a 
     bureau-by-bureau basis.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     regarding the Foundation for Environmental Security and 
     Sustainability, as proposed in the Senate amendment. The 
     House bill did not address this matter. The managers support 
     and urge AID to favorably consider $2,500,000 for the 
     Foundation for Environmental Security and Sustainability to 
     support environmental threat assessments with 
     interdisciplinary experts and academicians utilizing various 
     technologies to address issues such as infectious diseases, 
     and environmental indicators and warnings as they pertain to 
     the security of a region.
       The managers support the work of Alfalit International, an 
     educational nongovernmental organization dedicated to 
     promotion of literacy, elementary education, and community 
     development in Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. 
     Alfalit's proven record during the past three decades has 
     helped significantly reduce child and adult illiteracy 
     throughout Latin America and Africa. The managers direct AID 
     to provide $1,500,000 to Alfalit to develop and implement 
     programs to combat adult illiteracy in countries in which AID 
     operates.
       The managers encourage AID to support initiatives designed 
     to promote child safety in developing countries such as those 
     designed and carried out by the National Safe Kids Campaign. 
     The managers believe that developing countries could benefit 
     greatly from the 300 local programs already operating 
     throughout the United States.
       The managers support and direct AID to provide up to 
     $1,000,000 for the Center for Latin American Trade Expansion 
     at the University of San Francisco to assist in the 
     development of trade promotion initiatives at the USF 
     Business School's Center for Economic Development.
       The managers commend the progress made by the Eastern 
     European Real Property Program in the Europe and Eurasia 
     Bureau since 1992. As the program expands into

[[Page H10780]]

     other regions as the International Real Property Program 
     (IRPP), the Committee recommends that other AID regional 
     bureaus and missions seriously consider cooperation with the 
     IRPP as housing, shelter, and urban activities are included 
     in country strategies. The managers encourage AID to fund the 
     IRPP at a level not less than the fiscal year 1998 amount.


                     Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund

       The managers direct that $12,000,000 be provided through 
     the ``Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund'' to address the 
     medical, rehabilitative, economic and social needs of war 
     victims, particularly those who have been severely disabled 
     from landmines and other unexploded ordnance. Of this amount, 
     up to $10,000,000 is to be funded from the ``Development 
     Assistance'' account and the ``Economic Support Fund.'' The 
     balance should be funded from Office of Transition 
     Initiatives resources, and with funds from the demining 
     budget of the ``Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining 
     and Related Programs'' account.


                                 Cyprus

       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     provides not less than $15,000,000 of the funds made 
     available under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic 
     Support Fund'' for assistance for Cyprus for scholarships, 
     administrative support of the scholarship program, bicommunal 
     projects, and measures aimed at reunification of the island. 
     The House bill did not address this matter.


                                Lebanon

       The conference agreement includes language that provides 
     that not less than $35,000,000 of the funds made available 
     under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support 
     Fund'' shall be made available for Lebanon to be used, among 
     other programs, for scholarships and direct support of the 
     American educational institutions in Lebanon. The language is 
     similar to House and Senate language that provided that not 
     less than $18,000,000 should be made available for Lebanon 
     for these purposes.
       The managers are troubled by reports of the abduction to 
     Lebanon of American children by estranged parents, and urge 
     the Lebanese Government to assist in locating and returning 
     these children to the United States.


                                 Burma

       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     provides not less than $6,500,000 of the funds made available 
     under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support 
     Fund'' for assistance to support democracy activities in 
     Burma and for other specified activities. These funds are 
     made available notwithstanding any other provision of law, 
     and shall be subject to the regular notification procedures 
     of the Committees on Appropriations. Of these funds, 
     $3,500,000 should be derived from ``Economic Support Fund'' 
     and $3,000,000 should be derived from ``Development 
     Assistance''. The House bill did not address this matter.
       The managers are deeply concerned by recent actions taken 
     by the SPDC to limit efforts by Aung San Suu Kyi to travel 
     outside Rangoon to meet with members of the National League 
     for Democracy (NLD). On two separate occasions, she has been 
     detained or blocked from carrying out reasonable and legal 
     political organization activities. During the past year, Aung 
     San Suu Kyi has continued to call upon the junta to 
     participate in a dialogue to bring about reconciliation and 
     democracy. The response from the junta has been to escalate 
     repression of democratic activists and further isolate and 
     attempt to intimidate Aung San Suu Kyi. The conferees commend 
     the NLD and its leadership for its continued courage and 
     effort to restore democracy to Burma.
       In addition, the managers take note of the conditions under 
     which Min Ko Naing continues to suffer. In 1989, he led 
     students in non-violent protests against the military regime 
     and was an outspoken supporter for democracy and human 
     rights. For his actions, Min Ko Niang was arrested and 
     ultimately sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in solitary 
     confinement in the notorious Insein Prison. Min Ko Niang has 
     been offered immediate release by the military junta in 
     return for signing a statement renouncing the democracy 
     movement and abandoning any future activity in politics. He 
     has steadfastly refused to sign any document. In recognition 
     of his courage, the managers direct that not less than 
     $250,000 of the funds made available be dedicated to 
     establishing a Min Ko Niang student scholarship and support 
     fund.


                           Conservation Fund

       The conference agreement includes a provision, which is 
     similar to the Senate amendment, that not less than 
     $4,000,000 should be made available for the Conservation 
     Fund. The House bill did not address this matter. The 
     managers direct that not less than $4,000,000 be provided 
     equally from ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic 
     Support Fund'' to support the preservation of habitats and 
     related activities for endangered wildlife, including 
     $1,500,000 for programs to protect orangutans in Indonesia, 
     $1,500,000 for programs to protect gorillas in central 
     Africa, and $1,000,000 for programs to protect cheetahs in 
     Namibia. The managers direct AID to consult with the 
     Committees in advance on the proposed uses of these funds.


                  Private and Voluntary Organizations

       The conference agreement includes language proposed by the 
     House and the Senate providing that funds appropriated for 
     development assistance programs should be available to 
     private and voluntary organizations at a level which is at 
     least equivalent to the level provided in fiscal year 1995. 
     The conference agreement also requires that the Administrator 
     of AID inform the Committees on Appropriations prior to 
     waiving the requirement that private voluntary organizations 
     receive at least 20 percent of their total annual funding for 
     international activities from sources other than the United 
     States government. The House bill included a similar 
     provision.


                   International Disaster Assistance

       The conference agreement appropriates $165,000,000 for 
     ``International Disaster Assistance'', as proposed by the 
     House bill, instead of $220,000,000 as proposed by the Senate 
     amendment. The managers recommend the establishment of a 
     separate account for AID's Office of Transition Initiatives. 
     Therefore, the conference agreement provides the necessary 
     resources requested to meet all existing and projected 
     disaster needs in fiscal year 2001.
       The managers are concerned by reports of quality problems 
     in food aid commodities, including significant losses of 
     micro-nutrients during production and field preparation, and 
     believe that urgent action is needed to improve the quality 
     of commodities provided to vulnerable populations and ensure 
     the delivery of essential nutrients. The managers direct the 
     Administrator of AID, after consultation with agriculture 
     commodity producers and private voluntary organizations, to 
     establish a plan and mechanism to ensure cooperation between 
     AID and the Department of Agriculture to improve and assure 
     the quality of commodities provided under this Act.


                         Transition Initiatives

       The conference agreement appropriates $50,000,000 for a new 
     account for Transition Initiatives to support AID's Office of 
     Transition Initiatives (OTI). The House bill proposed 
     $40,000,000 for this account. The Senate amendment included 
     funding for OTI activities within the ``International 
     Disaster Assistance'' account. The conference agreement does 
     not preclude OTI from using resources transferred from other 
     development and economic assistance funds in this Act. The 
     conference agreement requires that AID submit a report to the 
     Appropriations Committees not less than five days prior to 
     beginning a new program of assistance. The House bill 
     contained a similar provision.


         micro and small enterprise development program account

       The conference agreement appropriates $1,500,000 for direct 
     loans and loan guarantees and $500,000 for administrative 
     expenses for micro and small enterprise activities as 
     proposed by the House bill. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter.


                   development credit program account

                     (including transfer of funds)

       The conference agreement appropriates $1,500,000 in a 
     direct appropriation and up to $5,000,000 by transfer from 
     funds made available under the heading ``Development 
     Assistance'' for the cost of loans and loan guarantees for 
     AID's Development Credit Program Account, as proposed by the 
     House. In addition, the conference agreement provides 
     $4,000,000 for administrative expenses which may be 
     transferred to and merged with AID's ``Operating Expenses'' 
     account, as proposed by the Senate. The House bill proposed 
     $6,495,000 for administrative expenses. The managers endorse 
     House report language directing the use of funds under this 
     heading for an integrated municipal infrastructure and 
     housing program in Costa Rica.


     operating expenses of the agency for international development

       The conference agreement appropriates $520,000,000, instead 
     of $509,000,000 proposed by the House and $510,000,000 
     proposed by the Senate, for Operating Expenses of the Agency 
     for International Development. The conference agreement 
     prohibits the use of funds in this account to finance the 
     construction or long-term lease of offices for use by AID 
     unless the Administrator of AID reports in writing to the 
     Appropriations Committees prior to the obligation of funds 
     for such purposes, as proposed by the House.

     Operating Expenses of the Agency for International Development


                      office of inspector general

       The conference agreement appropriates $27,000,000 for 
     Operating Expenses of the Agency for International 
     Development, Office of Inspector General, as proposed by the 
     House. The Senate amendment proposed $25,000,000.

                  Other Bilateral Economic Assistance


                         economic support fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $2,295,000,000 for 
     the Economic Support Fund instead of $2,208,900,000 as 
     proposed by the House and $2,220,000,000 as proposed by the 
     Senate.
       The conference agreement contains Senate language that 
     provides not less than $840,000,000 for Israel and not less 
     than $695,000,000 for Egypt, instead of not to exceed those 
     sums as proposed by the House. In addition, Senate language 
     is included that provides not less than $200,000,000 for the 
     Commodity Import Program in Egypt. The House bill did not 
     address this matter.
       The conference agreement does not contain Senate language 
     that would have authorized the use of up to the Egyptian 
     pound equivalent of $50,000,000 for certain specified 
     activities. The House bill did not address this matter.

[[Page H10781]]

       The conference agreement includes language that provides 
     that in exercising the authority to provide cash transfer 
     assistance for Israel, the President shall ensure that Israel 
     enters into a side letter agreement proportional to the 
     fiscal year 1999 agreement.
       The conference agreement also includes language that 
     provides that not less than $150,000,000 should be made 
     available for assistance for Jordan. The Senate language 
     would have mandated this level of support. The House bill did 
     not address this matter. The conference agreement does not 
     contain Senate language that would have provided $2,000,000 
     for the American Center for Oriental Research, but the 
     managers support this proposal and urge the Department of 
     State and the Agency for International Development to give it 
     favorable consideration.
       The conference agreement includes House language that 
     states that not less than $12,000,000 should be made 
     available for Mongolia. The Senate amendment did not address 
     this matter.
       The conference agreement also includes House language that 
     requires that funds obligated for regional or global programs 
     shall be subject to the regular notification procedures of 
     the Committees on Appropriations. The Senate amendment did 
     not address this matter.
       The conference agreement provides that $5,000,000 should be 
     made available for economic rehabilitation and related 
     activities in the Aceh region of Indonesia. In May 2000, 
     representatives of the Indonesian government and the Free 
     Aceh Movement signed a Joint Understanding on a Humanitarian 
     Pause for Aceh. Since signing the understanding 
     representatives have met and agreed upon a number of projects 
     which would address humanitarian and economic needs in Aceh. 
     The managers support this dialogue and urge AID through the 
     Office of Transition Initiatives to promptly provide 
     assistance to projects agreed upon by both parties which 
     further the objectives of the Joint Understanding and support 
     a resolution to the conflict in Aceh.
       The managers encourage AID to support effective economic 
     restructuring and decentralization programs, where feasible, 
     in key regions throughout Indonesia, especially in the 
     Moluccas and other areas of Eastern Indonesia.
       The conference agreement also includes language that 
     provides that not less than $25,000,000 shall be made 
     available for East Timor. The House bill did not address this 
     matter. The managers strongly support AID's Economic 
     Rehabilitation and Development Project, also known as the 
     East Timor Coffee Project. The managers are concerned about 
     reports that certain individuals in East Timor are seeking to 
     restore monopolistic control of coffee production, that would 
     jeopardize the livelihoods of thousands of farmers. The 
     managers will continue to closely monitor this project. The 
     managers are also aware of the importance of the 
     Consolidated Fund for East Timor and expect that the 
     United States will provide up to $4,500,000. The managers 
     also urge AID to continue supporting activities that will 
     improve the economy and establish democratic practices.
       The conference agreement also includes language similar to 
     that from the Senate amendment that provides that up to 
     $10,000,000 may be used, notwithstanding any other provision 
     of law and subject to the regular notification procedures of 
     the Committees on Appropriations, to provide certain 
     specified assistance to the National Democratic Alliance of 
     Sudan. The House bill did not address this matter. The 
     conference agreement does not include section 597 of the 
     Senate amendment regarding reporting requirements on Sudan. 
     However, the managers direct that the Secretary of State 
     report not later than March 1, 2001, describing the areas of 
     Sudan which are open to Operation Lifeline Sudan (OLS) and 
     those areas which are prohibited, and the reasons for these 
     prohibitions; the extent of actual deliveries of assistance 
     through OLS since January 1997; the areas of Sudan where the 
     United States has provided assistance outside of OLS since 
     January 1997, including the amount, extent and nature of that 
     assistance; and an assessment of the humanitarian needs in 
     areas of Sudan not served by OLS.
       The managers encourage USAID to provide an additional 
     $1,000,000 in Economic Support Funds during fiscal year 2001 
     to support Phase II of the Haiti Health Systems 2004 Project. 
     The additional resources will ensure that financial support 
     to health providers operating under performance based 
     contracts will not be reduced below fiscal year 2000 levels.
       The managers support and urge the State Department to 
     favorably consider the allocation of at least $250,000 in 
     funding for South Korean nongovernmental organizations 
     involved in activities to promote democratization efforts in 
     North Korea. Such funds should be programmed through the 
     National Endowment for Democracy.
       The managers support the House report language providing 
     $1,000,000 for the Reagan/Fascell Democracy Fellows Program 
     of the National Endowment for Democracy.
       The managers support the budget request of $20,000,000 for 
     assistance for Cambodia through nongovernmental organizations 
     (NGO's) and local governments, as appropriate. No support 
     would be available to or through the central government. The 
     managers support assistance for such activities as health 
     (especially to combat HIV/AIDS), education, environmental 
     protection and democratization. In addition, the managers 
     strongly support funding through NGO's to assist in efforts 
     to halt illegal logging operations. The managers also endorse 
     the House report language regarding the Cambodian Mine Action 
     Center. Finally, the managers commend the work of the 
     Documentation Center of Cambodia, which has painstakingly 
     cataloged the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge. This evidence 
     will be invaluable in any trials of Khmer Rouge leaders. The 
     managers direct AID to provide adequate funding so the 
     Documentation Center can continue its work.
       The managers direct that in addition to funds otherwise 
     requested or made available for Yemen, up to $4,000,000 shall 
     be dedicated to counter-terrorism training and 
     investigations. The managers also direct that these funds not 
     be made available until the Director of the Federal Bureau of 
     Investigation certifies to the Committees on Appropriations 
     that the Government of Yemen is fully cooperating with United 
     States officials in the investigation of the bombing of the 
     U.S.S. Cole.
       The managers also reiterate support for conflict resolution 
     programs as described in the House and Senate reports, 
     including funding for Seeds of Peace.

                     International Fund for Ireland

       The conference agreement appropriates $25,000,000 as 
     proposed by the House. The Senate amendment contained no 
     provision on this matter.
       The managers endorse the House and Senate report language 
     in urging the application of equal opportunity principles 
     through the International Fund for Ireland. The managers also 
     endorse the Senate report language on the Northern Ireland 
     Voluntary Trust, and the House report language on Project 
     Children.

          Assistance for Eastern Europe and the Baltic States

       The conference agreement appropriates $600,000,000 instead 
     of $535,000,000 as proposed by the House and $635,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate.
       The conference agreement does not include minimum funding 
     levels for Croatia and Montenegro as proposed by the Senate. 
     However, the managers strongly support assistance for both 
     countries. From funds appropriated under this heading both in 
     this title and in title VI, as well as from funds made 
     available in Public Law 106-52, the managers expect that not 
     less $65,725,000 will be made available for Croatia and not 
     less than $89,000,000 will be made available for Montenegro.
       The managers strongly support the announced intention of 
     the Government of Croatia to fulfill several commitments, 
     including cooperation with the International Criminal 
     Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia; an end to financial, 
     political, security, and other support to Herceg Bosna; 
     establishment of a swift timetable and cooperation in support 
     of the safe return of refugees; and the acceleration of 
     political, media, electoral, and anti-corruption reforms. The 
     managers direct that the Secretary of State report to the 
     Committees on Appropriations on the implementation of these 
     goals prior to the obligation of funds for Croatia.
       The conference agreement contains language similar to that 
     in the House bill that provides not less than $5,000,000 for 
     the Baltic States. In addition, it contains language similar 
     to that in the Senate amendment that imposes a ceiling of 
     $80,000,000 on assistance to Bosnia and Herzegovina from 
     funds appropriated under this heading and under the headings 
     ``Economic Support Fund'' and ``International Narcotics 
     Control and Law Enforcement''. The House bill did not address 
     this matter.
       The conference agreement contains language similar to that 
     in the House bill that prohibits funds for Kosova from this 
     account and from ``Economic Support Fund'' and 
     ``International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement'' to 
     exceed 15 percent of the total resources pledged by all 
     donors for calendar year 2001 for assistance for Kosova as of 
     March 31, 2001. The Senate amendment would have prohibited 
     funds for Kosova until the Secretary of State certified that 
     the resources obligated and expended by the United States in 
     Kosova did not exceed 15 percent of the total resources 
     obligated and expended by all donors. The conference 
     agreement does not contain House language that would also 
     have limited funding for Kosova to $150,000,000.
       The conference agreement does not contain language from the 
     Senate amendment that would have required that not less than 
     50 percent of the funds made available for Kosova be made 
     available through non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The 
     House bill did not address this matter. The managers direct 
     that the Agency for International Development submit 
     quarterly reports to the Committees on Appropriations 
     regarding the organizations, activities and levels of support 
     provided through local NGOs.
       The conference agreement includes language providing that 
     $1,300,000 should be made available to support the National 
     Albanian American Council's training program for Kosovar 
     women. The Senate amendment would have mandated such support. 
     The House bill did not address this matter.
       The conference agreement does not contain Senate language 
     regarding $250,000 for assistance to law enforcement 
     officials in Kosova

[[Page H10782]]

     to better identify and respond to cases of trafficking in 
     persons or $750,000 for a joint project developed by the 
     University of Pristina and Dartmouth Medical School to help 
     restore and improve educational programs at the University of 
     Pristina Medical School. However, the managers support 
     funding for these items, as well as for a proposal by Florida 
     State University for $2,000,000 to fund a distance learning 
     program of instruction in basic legal principles for students 
     and professionals in Eastern Europe, and urge the Agency for 
     International Development to favorably consider these 
     proposals. In addition, the managers reiterate support for 
     the Orava Project of the University of Northern Iowa as 
     expressed in the House and Senate reports.
       The managers note the crucial importance of a democratic, 
     multi-ethnic Macedonia to stability in the Balkans, as well 
     as the contributions made by that nation during the Kosova 
     air campaign. In view of these factors the managers strongly 
     support adequate resources for assistance for Macedonia for 
     fiscal year 2001.
       The managers note with great concern the delay in the 
     implementation of critical nuclear safety upgrades at the 
     Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant in Bulgaria. The managers are 
     further concerned that commercial disputes regarding the 
     project may negatively affect U.S.-Bulgarian commercial 
     relations. Therefore, the Secretary of State is urged to 
     communicate to the Government of Bulgaria the need to 
     expeditiously begin work on this project.
       The conference agreement includes language similar to that 
     in the House bill that authorizes the use of local currencies 
     generated by the assistance program in Bosnia for use in 
     Eastern Europe consistent with the provisions of the Support 
     for East European Democracy (SEED) Act of 1989 and the 
     Foreign Assistance Act of 1961. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter. The managers expect the Agency for 
     International Development to consult with the Committees on 
     Appropriations on the proposed uses of these funds, and to 
     submit a financial plan to the Committees following such 
     consultations.
       The conference agreement contains House language regarding 
     Presidential authority to withhold funds for Bosnia if the 
     Bosnian Federation is not complying with the requirements of 
     the Dayton Peace Accord regarding the removal of foreign 
     troops, and has not terminated intelligence cooperation with 
     Iranian officials. The Senate amendment contained similar 
     language.
       The managers request the President to determine whether it 
     would be appropriate to expunge by executive order certain 
     references in the 1965 report of the Commission on Law 
     Enforcement and Administration of Justice, entitled ``The 
     Challenge of Crime in a Free Society,'' to Italian nationals.

    Assistance for the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union

       The conference agreement appropriates $810,000,000, instead 
     of $740,000,000 as proposed by the House and $775,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate. The managers have included a ceiling 
     of 8 percent on management costs instead of 7 percent as 
     proposed by the Senate for nuclear safety activities. 
     Further, the conference agreement places a limitation of 25 
     percent on the percentage of funds that may be allocated for 
     any single country as proposed by the House.
       The conference agreement includes not less than 
     $45,000,000, as proposed by the House, only for child 
     survival, environmental and other health activities; programs 
     to reduce the incidence of infectious diseases; and related 
     activities. When AID is allocating funds to combat HIV/AIDS 
     and tuberculosis in the Europe and Eurasia region, the 
     managers direct that funds from regional accounts and the 
     Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund are to be provided 
     in approximately equal amounts.
       The conference agreement also directs the Coordinator of 
     Assistance to the Independent States to obligate not less 
     than $1,500,000, primarily through locally-based and 
     indigenous private voluntary organizations, to reduce 
     trafficking in women and children. The managers urge the 
     Coordinator to augment anti-trafficking projects by 
     continuing and strengthening law enforcement and other 
     activities to reduce all forms of violence against women. As 
     proposed by the Senate, the conference agreement mandates the 
     obligation of not less than $10,000,000, from this and the 
     migration and refugee account, only for nongovernmental 
     organizations providing humanitarian relief in Chechnya and 
     Ingushetia.
       The managers strongly support regional cooperation efforts 
     among the countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia. To 
     further regional cooperation, the conference agreement 
     continues the current six exemptions from the statutory 
     restrictions on assistance to the Government of Azerbaijan. 
     The managers include a provision that of the funds available 
     for the Southern Caucasus region 15 percent, as proposed by 
     the House, may be used for confidence-building measures and 
     other activities related to the resolution of regional 
     conflicts, notwithstanding any other provision of law, as 
     proposed by the Senate.
       In support of regional reconciliation in the Caucasus, the 
     managers believe that bringing together political leaders, 
     academics and other individuals from Georgia, Armenia and 
     Azerbaijan to discuss economic and cultural development, 
     democracy building, and the needs of victims of conflict 
     would be a vital step. Therefore, the managers direct that 
     $900,000 be made available, from funds for the Southern 
     Caucasus region for confidence-building measures for such 
     initiatives, specifically, the International Peace Forum, to 
     be held in Tbilisi, Georgia, in Spring 2001.
       The conference agreement reserves not less than $92,000,000 
     of the funds in this account for Georgia only and not less 
     than $90,000,000 for Armenia only, instead of $94,000,000 and 
     $89,000,000, respectively, as proposed by the Senate, and 
     12.5 percent for each as proposed by the House. The managers 
     direct the Coordinator and AID to allocate not less than 
     $25,000,000 of the funds made available for Georgia for 
     security assistance for border and export control only and up 
     to $5,000,000 for the training of municipal and regional 
     officials in management of water resource, transportation, 
     and other sectors operated or regulated by local governments 
     in Georgia. The managers support and urge AID to favorably 
     consider proposals by Fort Valley State University and the 
     University of Louisville to participate in any absorptive 
     capacity fund that may be established in the Republic of 
     Georgia.
       The managers are aware that Armenia may be selected as the 
     host site for Synchrotron Light Source Particle Accelerator 
     project known as SESAME. The managers understand that the 
     project will be used to advance regional interests in 
     medicine, geology, industry, and electronics. In the event 
     that the project is located in Armenia, the managers intend 
     that $15,000,000 of the funds made available for Armenia 
     should support this or a comparable project.
       The managers include bill language directing that 
     $170,000,000 should be made available for Ukraine instead of 
     $175,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. Of the amount for 
     Ukraine, not less than $25,000,000 shall be provided for 
     nuclear reactor safety programs. The managers have also 
     included bill language directing that $5,000,000 should be 
     provided for the Ukrainian Land and Resource Management 
     Center.
       The conference agreement includes not less than $1,000,000 
     to increase analytical capacity in Ukraine in the area of 
     healthcare and environmental health epidemiology, 
     particularly concerning children with special needs and birth 
     defects. This directive is based on the Senate amendment 
     mandating funds to complete the ongoing study of the 
     environmental causes of birth defects in Ukraine that is 
     managed by the University of South Alabama. The conference 
     agreement also includes not less than $3,250,000 for two 
     regional initiatives, industrial sector management study 
     tours conducted by Ohio's Center for Economic Initiatives and 
     community telecommunications activities managed by the 
     National Telephone Cooperative Association.
       The conference agreement includes conditions on assistance 
     to the Government of the Russian Federation, with exceptions 
     for specified humanitarian and security programs, with 
     respect to its adherence in the Northern Caucasus to certain 
     conventional arms and human rights conventions and 
     agreements, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.
       The conference agreement provides that 60 percent of 
     assistance to the Government of the Russian Federation would 
     be withheld if the President is unable to certify to Congress 
     that the Russian Government has terminated its ongoing 
     cooperation with the Government or Iran with regard to 
     certain nuclear and missile technology matters, and, with 
     regard to Chechnya, is cooperating with international efforts 
     to investigate allegations of war crimes and is in compliance 
     with article V of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in 
     Europe.
       The managers reiterate language from the fiscal year 2000 
     Statement of the Managers with regard to other limitations on 
     assistance, ``that assistance to combat infectious diseases, 
     * * * support for regional and municipal governments, and 
     partnerships between United States hospitals, universities, 
     judicial training institutions and environmental 
     organizations and counterparts in Russia should not be 
     affected by this section.''
       The conference agreement includes language providing not 
     less than $20,000,00 for the Russian Far East. This matter 
     was not addressed in the House bill. The managers recognize 
     the successful entrepreneurship, management and 
     democratization programs carried out during the past seven 
     years in the Russian Far East by the University of Alaska's 
     American-Russian Center. In addition to supporting continued 
     University of Alaska programs in the Russian Far East, the 
     managers direct that $3,000,000 be made available for a 
     proposal by the University of Alaska to extend these efforts 
     to Chukotka. In collaboration with Alaska Pacific University 
     and two Alaska Native regional governments (the North Slope 
     Borough and the Northwest Arctic Borough), the University of 
     Alaska will provide training and technical assistance to 
     strengthen Chukotka's economy, develop market driven systems, 
     and improve social conditions, particularly for the 
     indigenous peoples.
       The managers commend three programs in Russia that merit 
     support from the ``Assistance for the Independent States of 
     the Former Soviet Union'' account. The Replication of Lessons 
     Learned (ROLL) program provides ongoing American support to 
     help local Russian private volunteer organizations increase 
     their management capacity to help solve pollution and related 
     health problems, protect natural resources, and support

[[Page H10783]]

     economic growth. The managers urge that the ROLL and similar 
     small grants programs that support women, children, and 
     religious freedom be increased by at least 10 percent over 
     current levels.
       In addition, the managers direct that not less than 
     $250,000 should be provided to the Moscow School of Political 
     Studies to support its successful efforts to teach democratic 
     and free market principles to the emerging generation of 
     Russia's political leaders and $400,000 be made available for 
     the Cochran Fellowship Program to acquaint Russian farmers 
     with American agricultural practices and to enhance U.S.-
     Russian trade and business relations. The Moscow School of 
     Political Studies is making a concerted effort to teach 
     democratic and free market principles to the emerging 
     generation in Russia. It does this by conducting numerous 
     seminars to expose young political leaders--of all parties, 
     at both the federal and regional levels--to Western classical 
     political and economic thought.
       The conference agreement also includes funds to support 
     expansion of the Primary Healthcare Initiative in Ukraine, 
     Georgia, and Russia of the World Council of Hellenes, and the 
     United States-Russia Investment Fund, consistent with the 
     funding levels specified in the House report. The managers 
     commend the Fund for its promotion and development of a 
     market economy in Russia and urge the State Department and 
     AID allocate the maximum level practicable to the Fund in 
     fiscal year 2001. The managers also support House language 
     recommending the creation of a collaborative research program 
     on issues of arms control verification for Russian and 
     American scholars under the Expanded Threat Reduction 
     Program. The managers also support and urge AID to favorably 
     consider proposals to expand two existing programs: the 
     Silk Road Seed Multiplication Program, based on the 
     success of a similar program in Armenia; and the 
     University of Arkansas Medical School-Volgograd 
     Partnership program.
       The conference agreement does not reserve $6,000,000 from 
     this account only for Mongolia, as proposed by the Senate. 
     Language in the statement of the managers under the heading 
     ``Economic Support Fund'' addresses this matter.

                           Independent Agency

                              Peace Corps

       The conference agreement appropriates $265,000,000 instead 
     of $258,000,000 as proposed by the House and $244,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate.

                          Department of State


          International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement

       The conference agreement appropriates $325,000,000 for 
     International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement instead 
     of $305,000,000 as proposed by the House and $220,000,000 
     proposed by the Senate.
       The conference agreement requires that all anti-crime 
     programs be subject to the regular notification procedures of 
     the Committees on Appropriations, as proposed by the House. 
     The Senate did not address this matter.
       The conference agreement contains House language allowing 
     the Department of State to utilize section 608 of the Foreign 
     Assistance Act to receive excess property from other U.S. 
     federal agencies for use in a foreign country. The Senate 
     amendment did not address this matter.
       The managers endorse House report language regarding, and 
     direct the State Department to favorably consider, Notre Dame 
     University's program of human rights, democracy, and conflict 
     resolution training in Colombia.
       The managers direct the Secretary of State to engage the 
     government of Panama in good faith negotiations for the 
     conclusion of an agreement which provides the U.S. military a 
     forward operating location to support the use funds of under 
     this heading.


                    Migration and Refugee Assistance

       The conference agreement appropriates $700,000,000, instead 
     of $645,000,000 as proposed by the House and $615,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement makes 
     available $14,500,000, for administrative expenses, instead 
     of $14,000,000 as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House 
     proposed $14,852,000 for administrative expenses.
       The conference agreement also includes Senate language, not 
     included in the House bill, that provides not less than 
     $60,000,000 for refugees from the former Soviet Union and 
     Eastern Europe and other refugees resettling in Israel.
       The conference agreement provides that funds appropriated 
     under this heading to support activities and programs 
     conducted by the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees 
     shall be made available after reporting at least 5 days in 
     advance to the Committees on Appropriations. This reporting 
     requirement may be waived for any obligation if failure to do 
     so would pose a substantial risk to human health or welfare. 
     In the event that the waiver is exercised, a report to the 
     Committees on Appropriations shall be provided as early as 
     practicable, but in no event later than 5 days after such 
     obligation.
       The managers support the efforts of the Department of State 
     to remove anti-Semitic content in textbooks and curricula 
     used in schools administered by the United Nations Relief and 
     Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). 
     The managers are concerned by reports that anti-Semitic, 
     anti-Israel rhetoric has been included in new Palestinian 
     school textbooks. Accordingly, the managers direct the 
     Secretary of State to report in writing to the Committees on 
     Appropriations not later than February 1, 2001, on any such 
     anti-Semitic, anti-Israel content in the new textbooks and on 
     initiatives to redress such content in UNRWA schools.


     United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $15,000,000, as 
     proposed by the Senate amendment. The House bill proposed 
     $12,500,000.


    Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining and Related Programs

       The conference agreement appropriates $311,600,000 instead 
     of $241,600,000 as proposed by the House and $215,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate.
       The managers intend that funds in this account be allocated 
     as follows:

                       [In thousands of dollars)

Nonproliferation and Disarmament Fund...........................$15,000
Export control assistance........................................19,100
International Atomic Energy Agency...............................47,000
CTBT Preparatory Commission......................................21,500
Korean Peninsula Economic Development Organization (KEDO)........55,000
Anti-terrorism assistance........................................38,000
Terrorist Interdiction Program....................................4,000
Demining.........................................................40,000
Small arms destruction............................................2,000
Science Centers..................................................35,000
Lockerbie trial costs............................................15,000
Nonproliferation contingency.....................................20,000
    Total.......................................................311,600

       The conference agreement does not provide funds for a 
     proposed Center for Antiterrorism and Security Training 
     (CAST), both due to budget constraints and due to the fact 
     that funding for domestic law enforcement training is not 
     under the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Foreign 
     Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs. Although 
     the proposal for CAST includes training for foreign law 
     enforcement purposes, the managers believe that these needs 
     can be met by training at existing facilities and encourage 
     the Department of State to coordinate with the Federal Law 
     Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) and the Department of 
     Justice. To the extent that other Federal entities were 
     seeking to participate in the proposed training facility, 
     such needs should be pursued through the proper subcommittees 
     of jurisdiction.
       The managers intend that $5,000,000 of the funds allocated 
     for export control assistance be made available for equipment 
     for Malta to enable that country to monitor shipments 
     transiting the Malta Freeport. This equipment will assist the 
     Government of Malta in its efforts to prevent the 
     transshipment of narcotics, weapons of mass destruction, and 
     other illegal material through the Freeport. As evidence in 
     the Lockerbie trial has illustrated, preventing such 
     shipments is in the direct national security interest of the 
     United States.
       In addition, the managers strongly support the allocation 
     of up to $8,000,000 for export control activities along 
     Jordan's borders with Iraq and Syria, including the 
     procurement of mobile vans and trucks that are capable of 
     monitoring shipments of goods into Jordan.
       The conference agreement includes House language that 
     authorizes a contribution to the Comprehensive Nuclear Test 
     Ban Treaty (CTBT) Preparatory Commission, and requires that 
     the Secretary of State inform the Committees on 
     Appropriations at least 20 days prior to the obligation of 
     funds for such Commission. The conference agreement does not 
     include Senate language on this matter. However, the managers 
     endorse the Senate report language directing that a report be 
     provided to the Committees on Appropriations on the 
     anticipated use of funds made available to the Commission, 
     including an identification of all donors and any directives 
     or restrictions associated with their contribution; a 
     detailed explanation of expenditures in 2000 and 2001, 
     including sites where the United States has provided 
     assistance to third party nations; and a copy of the 
     Commission's 2001 budget.
       The conference agreement includes Senate language 
     authorizing the use of funds for the destruction of small 
     arms, and providing that $40,000,000 should be used for 
     demining activities including not to exceed $500,000 for 
     administrative expenses. The House bill did not address these 
     matters.

                       Department of the Treasury


               International Affairs Technical Assistance

       The conference agreement includes $6,000,000 for the 
     International Affairs Technical Assistance program of the 
     Department of the Treasury instead of $5,000,000 as proposed 
     by the Senate and $2,000,000 as proposed by the House.


                           Debt Restructuring

       The conference agreement appropriates $238,000,000 for debt 
     restructuring as proposed by the House instead of $75,000,000 
     as proposed by the Senate. The managers include not less than 
     $13,000,000 only for implementation of title V of the Foreign 
     Assistance Act. The remainder of the amount provided for debt 
     restructuring may be used at the Administration's discretion, 
     subject to certain

[[Page H10784]]

     reporting and notification requirements, either for bilateral 
     debt restructuring or for United States contributions to the 
     Heavily Indebted Poor Country (HIPC) Trust Fund administered 
     by the World Bank.
       The conference agreement includes language that countries 
     benefiting from U.S. contributions to the HIPC Trust Fund 
     agree not to accept additional market-rate loans during a 
     ``time out on new debt'' moratorium. The moratorium for 24 
     months, instead of 30 months as proposed by the House, would 
     apply only to new lending from MDBs whose bad loans to the 
     beneficiary poor country are being paid off by the HIPC Trust 
     Fund.
       The managers have not included a House provision that would 
     have established a similar moratorium for 9 months with 
     regard to concessional or ``soft'' loans. The managers have 
     included bill language requiring that the Secretary of the 
     Treasury include a listing of all concessional loans that are 
     under consideration by multilateral development banks for 
     each HIPC beneficiary country. The extent and amount of 
     proposed new debt will be a factor as the Committees consult 
     with Treasury regarding the specific use of funds provided 
     for forgiveness of old debt. The managers agree with the 
     policy with regard to HIPC, issued by the Development 
     Committee of the IMF and World Bank at recent meetings in 
     Prague, that: ``further restraint on concessional lending may 
     also be warranted, including through greater recourse to 
     grant financing.'' The matter of new concessional lending to 
     HIPC beneficiaries is addressed in bill language under the 
     heading ``Contribution to the International Development 
     Association (IDA)''.
       The conferees encourage all bilateral creditors to provide 
     debt reduction to heavily indebted poor countries and that 
     special consideration be given to the unique circumstances of 
     selected bilateral creditors such as Costa Rica.
       The managers have also included language proposed by the 
     House that prohibits U.S. payments to the HIPC Trust Fund for 
     certain countries.
       The limitation affects any country credibly reported to be 
     engaged in a pattern of gross violations of internationally 
     recognized human rights or to be engaged in a war or civil 
     conflict that undermines its ability to comply with HIPC 
     conditions. The Senate amendment did not address these 
     matters.
       The conferees have included a provision that requires the 
     Secretary of the Treasury to consult with the Committees on 
     Appropriations concerning which countries and international 
     financial institutions are expected to benefit from a United 
     States contribution to the HIPC Trust Fund administered by 
     the World Bank during the fiscal year, and to inform the 
     Committees not less than fifteen days in advance of the 
     signature of an agreement by the United States to make 
     payments to the HIPC Trust Fund of amounts for such countries 
     and institutions. It is the understanding of the conferees 
     that the Secretary of the Treasury will update the list of 
     countries and institutions if new countries or institutions 
     are expected to benefit from U.S. contributions to the HIPC 
     Trust Fund during the fiscal year, and that such updating 
     will be provided in advance of informing the Committees of 
     the proposed signature of an agreement to make payments to 
     the HIPC Trust Fund with respect to any such new country or 
     institution.
       The conference agreement further requires full 
     documentation of any commitment by a HIPC beneficiary country 
     regarding redirection of domestic resources to additional 
     poverty alleviation and economic growth measures, as proposed 
     by the House. The Committees will closely monitor the 
     implementation of such commitments, taking into account the 
     findings of the Department of the Treasury, religious groups 
     that have advocated the HIPC initiative and knowledgeable 
     non-governmental organizations.

                     TITLE III--MILITARY ASSISTANCE

             International Military Education and Training

       The conference agreement appropriates $55,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate instead of $47,250,000 as proposed by 
     the House. The conference agreement also contains House 
     language not in the Senate amendment that provides that up to 
     $1,000,000 may be available until expended.
       The conference agreement includes House language that 
     provides that Expanded International Military Education and 
     Training (E-IMET) for Indonesia is subject to notification, 
     and Senate language that provides that Expanded IMET for 
     Guatemala is subject to notification.
       The conference agreement does not include House language 
     that conditioned funding for the School of the Americas upon 
     certifications by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary 
     of State, or that imposed certain reporting requirements. The 
     Senate amendment did not address these matters. The managers 
     note that the relevant authorizing committees are addressing 
     the future status of the School of the Americas as part of 
     H.R. 4205, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
     Year 2001.
       As part of the increase in funding for this account, the 
     managers would support increasing the allocation for Malta 
     from $100,000 to $200,000 for fiscal year 2001 in order to 
     support that country's needs for the professional training of 
     its armed forces.
       The managers support and urge the Departments of State and 
     Defense to favorably consider $150,000 from this account for 
     development for a peacekeeping initiative at the Naval 
     Postgraduate School. This education program would focus on 
     the creation of a security environment within which economic 
     and political development can accelerate, thereby 
     facilitating the withdrawal of United States and/or other 
     peacekeeping forces. The program would eventually provide 
     foreign civilians and military personnel with the specialized 
     expertise, problem-solving skills and management tools to 
     conduct peacekeeping operations that have an exit strategy.

                   Foreign Military Financing Program

       The conference agreement appropriates $3,545,000,000 
     instead of $3,519,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and 
     $3,268,000,000 as proposed by the House.
       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     provides not less than $1,980,000,000 for grants for Israel 
     and not less than $1,300,000,000 for grants for Egypt, 
     instead of not to exceed those sums as proposed by the House. 
     The conference agreement also includes language that provides 
     that not less than $520,000,000 shall be available for 
     procurement in Israel of defense goods and services. The 
     House and Senate had similar language on this matter, but the 
     House bill would not have mandated this level.
       The conference agreement deletes House language expressing 
     the Sense of Congress on the proposed Phalcon sale by Israel 
     to China. The managers commend the decision by the Government 
     of Israel to cancel the sale in view of the threat posed to 
     United States national security interests.
       The conference agreement includes language that provides 
     that not less than $75,000,000 should be made available for 
     assistance for Jordan. The Senate amendment would have 
     mandated this level of assistance. The House bill did not 
     address this matter.
       The conference agreement includes language similar to that 
     in the Senate amendment regarding an interest bearing account 
     for Egypt, except that the requirement for a notification is 
     replaced by language that requires that the Committees on 
     Appropriations be informed at least 10 days prior to the 
     obligation of funds earned on the interest from funds 
     deposited in said account. The House bill would have allowed 
     for the early disbursal of fiscal year 2001 outlays for 
     Egypt.
       The conference agreement includes not less than $8,500,000 
     for Tunisia, of which not less than $5,000,000 shall be from 
     drawdowns of defense articles, services, and education and 
     training. The Senate amendment provided $10,000,000 and 
     $4,000,000, respectively, for these activities. The House 
     bill did not address this matter.
       The conference agreement provides that not less than 
     $8,000,000 shall be provided for Georgia, of which not less 
     than $4,000,000 shall be from drawdowns of defense articles, 
     services, and education and training. The Senate amendment 
     mandated $12,000,000 and $5,000,000, respectively, for these 
     activities. The House bill did not address this matter. The 
     conference agreement also includes language that allocates 
     $3,000,000 in grant funds for Malta.
       The conference agreement does not include Senate language 
     that would have authorized the transfer by Turkey to Georgia 
     of not to exceed $10,000,000 in defense articles sold by the 
     United States to Turkey. The House bill did not address this 
     matter.
       The conference agreement provides for a limitation of 
     $33,000,000 for administrative expenses as proposed by the 
     Senate, rather than $30,495,000 as proposed by the House. It 
     also includes House language that provides that no 
     Partnership for Peace funds may be made available to a non-
     NATO country except through the regular notification 
     procedures of the Committees on Appropriations.

                        Peacekeeping Operations

       The conference agreement appropriates $127,000,000 instead 
     of $117,900,000 as proposed by the House and $85,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate.
       The managers urge the State Department to provide support 
     to the Special War Crimes Court for Sierra Leone, to bring to 
     justice those responsible for the mutilation and slaughter of 
     innocent people there.

               TITLE IV--MULTILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  International Financial Institutions


                   Global Environment Facility (GEF)

       The conference agreement appropriates $108,000,000 for the 
     Global Environment Facility instead of $50,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate and $35,800,000 as proposed by the 
     House.


       Contribution to the International Development Association

       The conference agreement appropriates $775,000,000 instead 
     of $750,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $566,600,000 as 
     proposed by the House.
       The managers have agreed to language, similar to that 
     proposed by the House, regarding the provision of grant 
     assistance by the International Development Association to 
     HIPC beneficiaries. The managers endorse Senate report 
     language concerning the need for further reform of procedures 
     to address employee grievances at the World Bank, IMF, and 
     other financial institutions.


      Contribution to the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency

       The conference agreement appropriates $10,000,000 for paid-
     in capital issued by the Multilateral Investment Guarantee 
     Agency,

[[Page H10785]]

     instead of $4,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and 
     $4,900,000 as proposed by the House. Approval for 
     subscription to the appropriate amount of callable capital is 
     also included in the conference agreement.


       Contribution to the Inter-American Investment Corporation

       The conference agreement appropriates $25,000,000 for the 
     United States contribution to the Inter-American Investment 
     Corporation, instead of $10,000,000 as proposed by the Senate 
     and $8,000,000 as proposed by the House.


Contribution to the Enterprise for the Americas Multilateral Investment 
                                  Fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $10,000,000 for the 
     United States contribution to the Multilateral Investment 
     Fund (MIF) at the Inter-American Development Bank, as 
     proposed by the House. The Senate did not address this 
     matter.
       The MIF was intended to be a cutting-edge instrument for 
     expanding the private sector's contribution to growth in 
     Latin America. The managers request the Secretary of the 
     Treasury to prepare and submit to the Committees by April 6, 
     2001, an in-depth report on the MIF prepared by private 
     sector entrepreneurs from the U.S. and Latin America. The 
     report should evaluate the portfolio of the MIF with respect 
     to private sector growth, including, but not limited to, the 
     status of project execution and value added, and include 
     strategic recommendations for achieving greater impact and 
     expediting project selection and approval.


               Contribution to the Asian Development Fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $72,000,000 for the 
     Asian Development Fund, as proposed by the House, instead of 
     $100,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.


              Contribution to the African Development Bank

       The conference agreement appropriates $6,100,000 for paid-
     in capital issued by the African Development Bank as proposed 
     by the Senate, instead of $3,100,000 as proposed by the 
     House. Approval for subscription to the appropriate amount of 
     callable capital is also included in the conference 
     agreement.


              Contribution to the African Development Fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $100,000,000 for the 
     African Development Fund instead of $72,000,000, as proposed 
     by the House and the Senate.


  Contribution to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development

       The conference agreement appropriates $35,778,717 for the 
     European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, as proposed 
     by the House, instead of $35,779,000, as proposed by the 
     Senate. Approval for subscription to the appropriate amount 
     of callable capital is also included in the conference 
     agreement.


            International Fund for Agricultural Development

       The conference agreement appropriates $5,000,000 for the 
     International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), as 
     proposed by the House. The Senate included a total of 
     $5,000,000 for IFAD within the ``International Organizations 
     and Programs'' and ``Development Assistance'' accounts.


                International Organizations and Programs

       The conference agreement provides $186,000,000, instead of 
     $183,000,000 as proposed by the House and $288,000,000 as 
     proposed by Senate. The final appropriation level does not 
     include $110,000,000 provided for UNICEF, and up to 
     $50,000,000 for the Global Alliance for Vaccines and 
     Immunization (GAVI), which are included under the ``Child 
     Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' account and $2,500,000 
     for IFAD, which is included under the prior heading.
       The conference agreement continues current law indicating 
     that $5,000,000 should be made available for the World Food 
     Program, as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment 
     included similar language.
       The managers support $5,000,000 from this account for the 
     United States contribution to the United Nations Voluntary 
     Fund for Victims of Torture Program, as recommended in the 
     Senate Report, and $90,000,000 for the United Nations 
     Development Program, as recommended in the House Report.

                      TITLE V--GENERAL PROVISIONS

       (Note--If House and Senate language is identical except for 
     a different section number or minor technical differences, 
     the section is not discussed in the Statement of Managers.)
     Sec. 505. Limitation on Representational Allowances
       This section retains reference to the Inter-American 
     Foundation as proposed by the House and as contained in 
     current law. The Senate amendment proposed deleting this 
     reference.
     Sec. 508. Military Coups
       The conference agreement includes House language that 
     specifies that funds shall be prohibited for any country 
     whose duly elected head of government is deposed by decree or 
     military coup. The Senate amendment included similar 
     language.
     Sec. 510. Deobligation/Reobligation Authority
       The conference agreement deletes Senate language that would 
     have authorized deobligation/reobligation authority for funds 
     that are certified pursuant to section 1311 of the 
     Supplemental Appropriations Act, 1955.
     Sec. 511. Availability of Funds
       The conference agreement deletes House language that 
     provided that the final proviso under title VI of the fiscal 
     year 2000 appropriations Act for foreign operations, export 
     financing, and related programs shall be null and void. 
     Similar language is already contained in Public Law 106-52.
     Sec. 512. Limitation on Assistance to Countries in Default
       The conference agreement is the same as current law, as 
     proposed by the House. The Senate proposed to restrict the 
     limitation to a defaulting government instead of a defaulting 
     country.
     Sec. 515. Notification Requirements
       The conference agreement is the same as current law. The 
     Senate proposed a technical change.
     Sec. 517. Independent States of the Former Soviet Union
       The conference agreement is the same as current law, except 
     that the special notification requirement applies to Russia, 
     Ukraine, Armenia, and Georgia only. The House bill deleted a 
     current provision relating to territorial integrity and 
     required special notification for Russia and Ukraine only. 
     The Senate amendment was essentially the same as current law.
     Sec. 520. Special Notification Requirements
       The conference agreement adds ``Ethiopia'', ``Eritrea'', 
     and ``Zimbabwe'' as proposed by the House bill and retains 
     ``Pakistan'' as proposed by the Senate amendment, to the list 
     of countries subject to the special notification procedures 
     of this section. The managers are encouraged that on June 8, 
     2000, a cease-fire agreement was signed by Ethiopia and 
     Eritrea and that efforts are underway to reach a permanent 
     settlement of the border conflict.
     Sec. 522. Child Survival and Disease Prevention Activities
       The conference agreement authorizes AID to use $16,000,000 
     from the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' for 
     technical experts from other government agencies, 
     universities, and other institutions. The Senate proposed 
     $10,000,000 and the House $10,500,000 for this purpose. The 
     managers have increased this authority on an interim basis in 
     order to accelerate implementation of the expanded HIV/AIDS 
     and tuberculosis activities. AID is directed to replace the 
     additional temporary personnel as rapidly as possible with 
     AID direct hire OE-funded personnel. As the purpose of the 
     general provision is to support effective implementation 
     of the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund, the 
     conference agreement does not include a reference to 
     family planning, as proposed by the Senate.
     Sec. 525. Authorization Requirement
       The conference agreement includes language that provides 
     that funds appropriated by this Act may be obligated and 
     expended notwithstanding section 10 of Public Law 91-672 and 
     section 15 of the State Department Basic Authorities Act of 
     1956, as provided in the House bill and the Senate amendment. 
     However, it includes new language exempting the accounts 
     ``International Military Education and Training'' and 
     ``Foreign Military Financing Program'' from these waivers. 
     Authorizations of appropriations for these accounts have been 
     enacted into law as part of Public Law 106-280.
     Sec. 526. Democracy in China
       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     authorizes the use of funds from the account ``Economic 
     Support Fund'' for the support of nongovernmental 
     organizations located outside of China to foster democracy 
     and rule of law. The House bill only authorized funds to 
     foster democracy.
       The conference agreement includes language that allows 
     funds from this Act or from prior acts making appropriations 
     for Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related 
     Programs, that are made available for the National Endowment 
     for Democracy (NED) to be made available notwithstanding any 
     other provision of law or regulation. The purpose of this 
     language is to allow for the expeditious and orderly 
     obligation of funds through the Endowment for support of 
     nongovernmental organizations overseas. This provision would 
     become effective upon enactment. The House bill and the 
     Senate amendment contained language that would have made 
     funds for NED available consistent with certain decisions of 
     the Comptroller General and in accordance with Office of 
     Management and Budget Circular A-122.
       The conference agreement includes language that authorizes, 
     notwithstanding any other provision of law, not to exceed 
     $2,000,000 from the Economic Support Fund to support certain 
     activities in Tibetan communities. The House bill contained 
     similar language; the Senate amendment did not address this 
     matter.
       The conference agreement also contains House language that 
     amends current law to make available $1,000,000 in previously 
     appropriated funds for the Jamestown Foundation for a project 
     to disseminate information and support research about the 
     People's Republic of China. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter.
     Sec. 528. Report on the Implementation of Supplemental 
         Appropriations
       The conference agreement includes House language that 
     requires four quarterly reports on the use of funds 
     appropriated under title VI of the fiscal year 2000 
     appropriations Act for foreign operations, export financing, 
     and

[[Page H10786]]

     related programs. The Senate amendment did not address this 
     matter.
     Sec. 530. Peru
       The conference agreement includes language requiring the 
     Secretary of State to determine and report to the Committees 
     on Appropriations regarding progress toward elections and 
     improvements in democracy and rule of law. The Senate 
     amendment contained a similar provision. The House bill did 
     not address this matter. The managers direct the Secretary of 
     State to submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations 
     not later than 30 days after the date of enactment of this 
     Act, evaluating United States, political, economic, and 
     military relations with Peru in accordance with P.L. 106-186.
     Sec. 535. Authorities for the Peace Corps, International Fund 
         for Agricultural Development, Inter-American Foundation, 
         and African Development Foundation
       The conference agreement maintains current law as proposed 
     by the House. The Senate amendment proposed deleting the 
     reference to the Inter-American Foundation.
     Sec. 537. Clean Coal Technology
       The conference agreement includes Senate language 
     encouraging the use of clean coal technology in environmental 
     and energy infrastructure programs, projects and activities. 
     In addition, the managers encourage the Secretary of the 
     Treasury, Secretary of State, Secretary of Energy and 
     Administrator of the Agency for International Development to 
     promote the use of other clean and renewable energy 
     technologies. The House bill did not address this matter.
     Sec. 538. Special Authorities
       The conference agreement deletes prior year language 
     proposed by the Senate that exempts humanitarian assistance 
     for Romania and the peoples of Kosova from any other 
     provision of law. This language is no longer necessary. The 
     conference agreement also includes House language that adds 
     ``Economic Support Fund'' to the list of accounts under which 
     certain activities may be undertaken notwithstanding any 
     other provision of law.
       The managers have expanded authority in current law 
     regarding AID's use of personal services contractors in 
     Washington so that additional bureaus and offices within AID 
     may utilize, on a temporary basis, such contractors. This 
     authority is intended to allow AID to meet relatively short-
     term requirements for technical and management personnel in 
     limited situations where natural disasters, recent foreign 
     policy decisions, or other unforeseen events result in rapid 
     increases in assistance levels and where other options, such 
     as the use of existing staff or hiring and training of new 
     staff, cannot be implemented quickly or effectively to meet 
     the unforeseen management needs. Other than under exceptional 
     circumstances, this authority should not be used to satisfy 
     requirements with durations greater than two years. The 
     Bureau of Management is directed to report to the Committees 
     not later than December 15, 2000, and March 15, 2001, on the 
     use of personal service contractors under this and other 
     authorities.
     Sec. 539. Policy on Terminating the Arab League Boycott of 
         Israel and Normalizing Relations with Israel
       The conference agreement includes House language on this 
     matter. The Senate amendment did not include subsections (2) 
     and (3) of the House general provision, dealing with the 
     decision by the Arab League to reinstate the boycott of 
     Israel in 1997, and calling on the League to immediately 
     rescind its decision; and deleted language from subsection 
     (4)(C) regarding a report on the specific steps that should 
     be taken by the President to ``expand the process of 
     normalizing ties between Arab League countries and Israel''.
     Sec. 540. Administration of Justice Activities
       The conference agreement contains language identical to 
     current law, but changes the name of this section, as 
     proposed by the House bill. The Senate amendment proposed 
     repeal of parts of section 534 of the Foreign Assistance Act.
     Sec. 541. Eligibility for Assistance
       The conference agreement includes language regarding 
     eligibility of assistance provided under this Act as proposed 
     by the House bill. The conference agreement does not include 
     a modification, as proposed in the Senate amendment, 
     regarding the prohibition on assistance to countries that 
     violate internationally recognized human rights.
     Sec. 543. Ceilings and Earmarks
       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     restores prior year language regarding earmarks and minimum 
     funding levels. The House bill did not address this matter.
     Sec. 552. War Crimes Tribunals Drawdown
       The conference agreement includes language proposed by the 
     Senate that provides a sunset date of September 30, 2001, for 
     certain reports required of the Secretary of State under this 
     section.
     Sec. 555. Prohibitions on Payment of Certain Expenses
       The conference agreement includes language identical to 
     current law, as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment 
     deleted references to the ``Child Survival and Disease 
     Programs Fund''.
     Sec. 558. Assistance for Haiti
       The conference agreement includes language similar to that 
     proposed by the House which prohibits additional assistance 
     to the central government of Haiti until the Committees on 
     Appropriations are in receipt of reports regarding free and 
     fair elections and regarding Haitian government cooperation 
     in illicit drug trafficking. The Senate amendment placed 
     conditions on aid to Haiti regarding free and fair elections, 
     but did not address illicit drug trafficking. The managers do 
     not intend that assistance to combat infectious diseases, 
     child survival, support for regional and municipal 
     governments, and partnerships between United States 
     hospitals, universities, non-governmental organizations and 
     counterparts in Haiti would be affected by this section.
     Sec. 559. Requirement for Disclosure of Foreign Aid in Report 
         of Secretary of State
       The conference agreement includes language proposed by the 
     Senate that makes a technical modification to current law.
     Sec. 561. Haiti Coast Guard
       The conference agreement includes language proposed in the 
     House bill regarding the purchase of defense goods and 
     articles by Haiti for its Coast Guard. The Senate amendment 
     proposed allowing the Haitian National Police to be eligible 
     to purchase these items.
     Sec. 564. Restrictions on Assistance to Countries Providing 
         Sanctuary to Indicted War Criminals
       The conference agreement includes Senate language that adds 
     assistance for refugees and internally displaced persons to 
     the exemptions to the sanctions of this section, and Senate 
     language regarding communities in which an indicted war 
     criminal is residing.
     Sec. 565. Discrimination Against Minority Religious Faiths in 
         the Russian Federation
       The conference agreement changes the title of this section, 
     as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House bill proposed 
     the title, ``To Prohibit Foreign Assistance to the Government 
     of the Russian Federation Should It Enact Laws Which Would 
     Discriminate Against Minority Religious Faiths in the Russian 
     Federation''.
     Sec. 568. Assistance for the Middle East
       The conference agreement contains language similar to the 
     House bill that imposes a spending ceiling of $5,241,150,000 
     on specified assistance for the Middle East. The Senate 
     amendment did not address this matter.
     Sec. 571. Foreign Military Training Report
       The conference agreement includes House language requiring 
     a joint report by the Secretary of State and the Secretary of 
     Defense on all overseas military training (excluding military 
     sales) provided to non-NATO foreign military personnel under 
     programs administered by the Departments of Defense and State 
     during 2000 and 2001, including those proposed for 2001. The 
     language specifies the scope of the report, and allows for a 
     classified annex, if deemed necessary and appropriate. The 
     report shall be due no later than March 1, 2001. The Senate 
     amendment did not address this matter.
     Sec. 572. Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization
       The conference agreement includes House language on this 
     matter, except that the ceiling on funding for the Korean 
     Peninsula Economic Development Organization (KEDO) is 
     $55,000,000 rather than $35,000,000 as in the House bill and 
     the Senate amendment. The House language conditions funding 
     for KEDO on a certification that (1) the parties to the 
     Agreed Framework have taken and continue to take demonstrable 
     steps to implement the Joint Declaration on Denuclearization 
     of Korea; (2) the parties have taken and continue to take 
     demonstrable steps to pursue the North-South dialogue; (3) 
     North Korea is complying with all provisions of the Agreed 
     Framework; (4) North Korea has not significantly diverted 
     assistance for purposes for which it was not intended; (5) 
     there is no credible evidence North Korea is seeking to 
     develop or acquire the capability to enrich uranium, or any 
     additional capability to reprocess spent nuclear fuel; (6) 
     North Korea is complying with its obligations regarding 
     access to suspect underground construction; (7) there is no 
     credible evidence North Korea is engaged in a nuclear weapons 
     program, including efforts to acquire, develop, test, 
     produce, or deploy such weapons, and (8) the United States is 
     continuing to make significant progress on eliminating the 
     North Korean ballistic missile threat, including further 
     missile tests and its ballistic missile exports.
       The language allows for the President to waive the 
     certification requirements of this section if he determines 
     that it is vital to the national security interests of the 
     United States, 30 days after a written submission to the 
     appropriate congressional committees. It also requires a 
     report from the Secretary of State on the fiscal year 2002 
     budget request for KEDO, with certain specified information 
     to be included in such report.
       The Senate amendment contained similar language.
     Sec. 573. African Development Foundation
       The conference agreement provides that funds to grantees of 
     the Foundation may be invested pending expenditure and that 
     interest earned must be used for the same purpose for which 
     the grant was made. Further, this section allows the 
     Foundation's board of directors, in exceptional 
     circumstances, to waive the existing $250,000 project 
     limitation, subject to reporting to the Committees on 
     Appropriations.
     Sec. 575. Iraq Opposition
       The conference agreement contains language similar to that 
     contained in title II of

[[Page H10787]]

     the Senate amendment specifying that not less than 
     $25,000,000 from the account ``Economic Support Fund'' shall 
     be made available for programs benefiting the Iraqi people, 
     including not less than $12,000,000 which should be provided 
     for certain specified humanitarian assistance, and not less 
     than $6,000,000 which should be provided to the Iraq National 
     Congress Support Foundation or the Iraqi National Congress 
     for radio and television broadcasting inside Iraq. It also 
     states that the President should submit a plan within 60 days 
     of enactment regarding the use of the funds recommended in 
     this section. The House bill did not address this matter.
       The managers strongly support assistance for Kurdish Human 
     Rights Watch for its programs to provide humanitarian 
     assistance to the Kurdish people in northern Iraq.
       The conference agreement also includes language similar to 
     that in the House bill that provides authority to use funds 
     to support efforts to bring about political transition in 
     Iraq, to be made available only to Iraqi opposition groups 
     designated under the Iraq Liberation Act, and not to exceed 
     $2,000,000 to be made available for groups and activities 
     seeking the prosecution of Saddam Hussein and other Iraqi 
     officials for war crimes. No funds may be made available for 
     administrative costs of the Department of State. The Senate 
     amendment did not address this matter.
     Sec. 576. Agency for International Development Budget 
         Justification
       The conference agreement instructs the Agency for 
     International Development to submit its 2002 budget in a 
     transparent and simplified format more useful to the 
     Committees, as proposed by the House. In particular, the 
     budget justification document should prominently display data 
     and narratives aggregating resources obligated or requested 
     for all Agency-managed programs and activities that are 
     traditionally of special interest to Congress and the 
     Executive branch. The Senate did not address this matter.
     Sec. 577. Kyoto Protocol
       The conference agreement prohibits funds in this Act to be 
     used to propose or issue rules, regulations, decrees, or 
     orders for the purpose of implementation, or preparation for 
     implementation of the Kyoto Protocol, as proposed by the 
     Senate.
     Sec. 579. Indonesia
       The conference agreement provision regarding military 
     assistance to Indonesia is similar to current law. The House 
     bill and the Senate amendment included identical conditions 
     under which a Presidential report and determination could 
     result in a resumption of military assistance to Indonesia 
     that is funded in this bill. The restrictions on assistance 
     include both IMET and Foreign Military Financing programs, 
     instead of FMF only, as proposed by the House bill.
       The managers are concerned about the more than 100,000 East 
     Timorese refugees still trapped in West Timor. This severe 
     humanitarian situation has been exacerbated by ongoing 
     harassment of aid workers by armed gangs, and recurring 
     border incursions into East Timor by West Timor-based 
     militias. These attacks have resulted in the deaths of 
     several UN aid workers, as well as refugees. The managers 
     strongly urge the Secretaries of Defense and State to press 
     the government of Indonesia to fulfill its commitments to 
     disarm and disband militia groups, end military and financial 
     support for these groups, and bring militia leaders to 
     justice. The managers note that, as provided in this section, 
     resumption of security assistance to Indonesia is 
     conditioned, in part, on the armed forces of Indonesia 
     providing safe passage to refugees returning from West Timor.
     Sec. 580. Man and the Biosphere
       The conference agreement prohibits funds for the United 
     Nations Man in the Biosphere Program and the World Heritage 
     Fund, as proposed by the House bill. The Senate did not 
     address this matter.
     Sec. 581. Taiwan Reporting Requirement
       The conference agreement includes language that requires 
     that not less than 30 days prior to the next round of arms 
     talks between the United States and Taiwan, the President 
     shall consult, on a classified basis, with appropriate 
     Congressional leaders and committee chairmen and ranking 
     members regarding the following matters: (1) Taiwan's 
     requests for purchase of defense articles and defense 
     services during the pending round of arms talks; (2) the 
     Administration's assessment of the legitimate defense needs 
     of Taiwan in light of those requests; and (3) the decision-
     making process used by the Executive Branch to consider those 
     requests. The House bill and the Senate amendment contained 
     language requiring the Secretary of State to consult with the 
     appropriate committees and leadership of Congress to devise a 
     mechanism to provide for Congressional input prior to making 
     any determination on the sale or transfer of defense articles 
     and services to Taiwan.
     Sec. 582. Restriction on United States Assistance for Certain 
         Reconstruction Efforts in Central Europe
       The conference agreement contains House language that 
     provides that to the maximum extent possible, assistance to 
     Eastern Europe and the Baltic States should be used for the 
     procurement of American goods and services. The Senate 
     amendment did not address this matter.
     Sec. 583. Restrictions on Assistance to Governments 
         Destabilizing Sierra Leone
       The conference agreement prohibits assistance to any 
     government for which the Secretary of State has credible 
     evidence that such government has, within the previous six 
     months, provided military support or which has assisted 
     illicit diamond trading which benefits the Revolutionary 
     United Front in Sierra Leone. This section is identical to 
     the House bill. The Senate amendment did not address this 
     matter.
     Sec. 584. Voluntary Separation Incentives
       The conference agreement provides for the payment of 
     voluntary separation incentives to AID employees for the 
     purpose of eliminating positions and functions at AID, as 
     proposed by the House bill and the Senate amendment.
     Sec. 585. Contributions to the United Nations Population Fund
       As proposed by the House bill, the conference agreement 
     provides that not more than $25,000,000 from the 
     ``International Organizations and Programs'' account shall be 
     made available for the United Nations Fund for Population 
     Activities. This assistance is subject to a number of 
     conditions regarding UNFPA activities. The Senate amendment 
     contained a similar provision.
     Sec. 586. Indochinese Parolees
       The conference agreement includes language similar to the 
     Senate amendment which provides authority for the Attorney 
     General to adjust the status of certain Indochinese parolees 
     to lawful permanent residence. The House bill did not address 
     this matter.
       The purpose of this provision is to address an anomaly in 
     current law, which requires that such persons have first been 
     denied refugee status in order to be eligible to adjust 
     status. Since these individuals were paroled into the United 
     States as part of U.S. government programs at a time when 
     their eligibility for refugee status was never considered, 
     the managers believe that this provision is both necessary 
     and appropriate. The provision is limited in scope to apply 
     only to parolees who are natives or citizens of Vietnam, Laos 
     or Cambodia, who were inspected and paroled into the United 
     States prior to October 1, 1997, and who are otherwise 
     eligible to receive an immigrant visa. The managers note that 
     the potential beneficiaries of this provision are a fixed 
     number of individuals who were lawfully admitted into the 
     United States. While the conference agreement includes a 
     ceiling on the number of aliens who may benefit from this 
     provision, the managers recognize that it is difficult to 
     determine precisely the number of potential beneficiaries and 
     that such number may need to be revised in the future to 
     ensure that no eligible alien is arbitrarily denied 
     adjustment of status.
     Sec. 587. American Churchwomen in El Salvador
       The conference agreement includes language regarding the 
     murder of four American churchwomen in El Salvador, as 
     proposed in the House bill. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter.
     Sec. 588. Procurement and Financial Management Reform
       The conference agreement includes a Senate provision 
     withholding 10 percent of the funds made available for 
     international financial institutions until the Secretary of 
     the Treasury certifies that a number of procurement and 
     financial management reforms are being implemented. The House 
     bill included a similar provision, adding a requirement 
     relating to funding of third-party procurement monitoring. 
     The conference agreement includes a provision that requires 
     that, prior to disbursement of the final 10 percent of the 
     United States portion or payment to an international 
     financial institution as defined in section 588, the 
     Secretary of the Treasury certify, inter alia, that the 
     institution is taking steps to establish an independent fraud 
     and corruption investigative organization or office or an 
     equivalent mechanism.
       The managers agree that, for purposes of this provision, an 
     investigatory organization, office, or equivalent 
     investigatory mechanism will be considered ``independent,'' 
     notwithstanding the fact that it is part of the international 
     financial institution, if it is autonomous from the 
     institution's procurement process and the office or 
     individual being investigated and reports directly to the 
     head of the institution or his designee, so long as such 
     designee has no operational or supervisory responsibilities 
     for the subject of the investigation.
     Sec. 589. Commercial Leasing of Defense Articles
       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     authorizes commercial leasing rather than sales of defense 
     articles for certain specified countries under certain 
     conditions. The House bill did not address this matter.
     Sec. 590. Foreign Military Expenditures Report
       The conference agreement repeals section 511(b) of 1993 
     Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related 
     Appropriations Act regarding matters to be included in the 
     annual human rights report to Congress by the Secretary of 
     State, as proposed by the Senate. The House bill did not 
     address this matter.
       The managers request that the Secretary of the Treasury 
     submit a one-time report to the Committees on Appropriations 
     which describes steps being taken to implement section 576 of 
     the 1997 Act and section 1502(b) of title XV of the 
     International Financial Institutions Act, both of which 
     address appropriate levels of military expenditures by

     countries in receipt of loans or credits from MDBs. The 
     report shall identify, among other things--(1) the countries 
     found not to be in compliance with the provisions of section 
     576 and instances where the United States Executive Director 
     has voted to oppose a loan as a result of that section; (2) 
     steps taken by the governments of countries to establish the 
     reporting systems addressed in section 576; (3) any instances 
     in which such governments have failed to provide information 
     requested by an international financial institution (IFI); 
     and (4) any policy changes that have been made by the IFIs 
     with regard to providing loans or credits to countries that 
     expend a significant portion of their financial resources for 
     their armed and security forces. The Senate included this 
     report in bill language. The House did not address the 
     matter.
     Sec. 591. Abolition of the Inter-American Foundation
       The conference agreement provides authority for the 
     President to abolish the Inter-American Foundation and 
     terminate its functions, as proposed by the Senate amendment. 
     The House bill did not address this matter.
     Sec. 592. Repeal of Requirement for Annual GAO Report on the 
         Financial Operations of the International Monetary Fund
       The conference agreement repeals existing law regarding an 
     annual General Accounting Office report of the financial 
     operations of the International Monetary Fund. The House bill 
     did not address this matter.
     Sec. 593. Extension of GAO Authorities
       The conference agreement provides that funds made available 
     to the General Accounting Office from fiscal year 1999 
     emergency supplemental appropriations for disaster relief in 
     Central America and the Caribbean shall remain available 
     until expended. This section is identical to the Senate 
     amendment. The House bill did not address this matter.
     Sec. 594. Funding for Serbia
       The conference agreement includes language that authorizes 
     up to $100,000,000 for assistance for Serbia, subject to 
     certain conditions that become effective after March 31, 
     2001. Funds obligated prior to that date would not be subject 
     to these conditions.
       The conditions include a determination and certification 
     that the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia 
     (FRY) is--
       (1) cooperating with the International Criminal Tribunal 
     for Yugoslavia including access for investigators, the 
     provision of documents, and the surrender and transfer of 
     indictees or assistance in their apprehension;
       (2) taking steps that are consistent with the Dayton 
     Accords to end Serbian financial, political, security, and 
     other support which has served to maintain separate Republika 
     Srpska institutions; and
       (3) taking steps to implement policies which reflect a 
     respect for minority rights and the rule of law.
       In addition, after March 31, 2001, the language provides 
     that the Secretary of the Treasury should instruct the United 
     States executive directors to international financial 
     institutions to support loans and assistance to the 
     Government of the FRY subject to these same conditions.
       The conditions described above do not apply to Montenegro, 
     Kosova, humanitarian assistance, or assistance to promote 
     democracy in municipalities.
       The language also provides that the Secretary of State 
     should instruct United States representatives to regional and 
     international organizations to support membership for the 
     Government of the FRY subject to a determination by the 
     President to the Committees on Appropriations that the FRY 
     has applied for membership on the same basis as the other 
     successor states to the FRY and has taken appropriate steps 
     to resolve issues related to state liabilities, assets, and 
     property.
       The House bill (in section 537) and the Senate amendment 
     would have prohibited assistance for Serbia, except for aid 
     to Kosova or Montenegro or to promote democracy.
     Sec. 595. Forest Initiative.
       The conference agreement includes a provision providing for 
     an exchange of federal lands and an audit of a public 
     enterprise. This matter was not addressed in the House bill 
     or the Senate amendment.
     Sec. 596. User Fees
       The conference agreement includes a provision which 
     requires the United States Executive Directors at all 
     multilateral development banks and the International Monetary 
     Fund to oppose any loan which requires user fees or service 
     charges on poor people for primary education or primary 
     health care. The managers further agree that user fees should 
     not be imposed or required through Bank or Fund sponsored 
     ``community financing,'' ``cost sharing,'' or ``cost 
     recovery'' mechanisms prepared in conjunctions with loans, 
     structural adjustment schemes or debt relief actions.
       The managers direct that the Committees on Appropriations 
     be notified within 10 days if any loans, community financing, 
     cost sharing, or cost recovery mechanisms requiring the 
     imposition of user fees are approved by any multilateral 
     development bank or the International Monetary Fund.
     Sec. 597. Basic Education Assistance for Pakistan
       The conference agreement includes a new provision allowing 
     development assistance or Economic Support Funds to be used 
     for basic education programs in Pakistan, notwithstanding any 
     provision of law that restricts assistance to foreign 
     countries. Any such assistance would be subject to the 
     regular notification procedures of the Committees on 
     Appropriations.
     Sec. 598. Family Planning
       The conference agreement provides a ceiling of $425,000,000 
     for population planning activities or other population 
     assistance but prohibits any of such funds from being 
     obligated or expended until February 15, 2001. The managers 
     believe this will afford adequate time for the exercise of 
     the authority of the President under the Foreign Assistance 
     Act and other law to determine what terms and conditions, if 
     any, should be imposed on assistance for population planning 
     and other population activities.
       PROVISIONS NOT ADOPTED BY THE CONFEREES:
       The conference agreement does not include section 530 of 
     the House bill or similar Senate language that would have 
     prohibited the transfer of Stinger missiles to countries 
     bordering the Persian Gulf notwithstanding any other 
     provision of law, but would have authorized the transfer of 
     Stinger missiles on a replacement basis subject to certain 
     specified conditions. This matter has been addressed by the 
     authorizing committees in H.R. 4919, the Security Assistance 
     Act of 2000.
       The conference agreement does not include section 577 of 
     the Senate amendment regarding stockpiling of defense

       The conference agreement does not contain section 582 of 
     the Senate amendment that would have deemed the Federal 
     Republic of Yugoslavia (with the exception of Montenegro and 
     Kosova) to be a state sponsor of terrorism until receipt of a 
     Presidential certification of certain occurrences within 
     Serbia. The House bill did not address this matter.
       The conference report does not include section 584 of the 
     Senate amendment that would have required that a number of 
     specified sanctions against Serbia remain in place until a 
     certification was issued by the President. The certification 
     would have required that Serbia comply with a number of 
     international agreements, and provided an exemption for 
     Montenegro and Kosova for the sanctions imposed through 
     international financial institutions. The House bill did not 
     address this matter.
       The conference agreement does not include section 586 of 
     the Senate amendment regarding the repeal of the final 
     proviso under title VI of the fiscal year 2000 appropriations

     II.

       The conference agreement does not include section 599D of

     United States to oppose loans, credits or guarantees to the 
     Russian Federation, except for basic human needs, if the 
     Russian Federation delivers any additional SS-N-22 missiles 
     or components to the People's Republic of China. The House 
     bill did not address this matter.
       The conference agreement does not include section 599K of

            TITLE VI--EMERGENCY SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS

                     BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  Funds Appropriated to the President

                  Agency for International Development


                   International Disaster Assistance

       The conference agreement appropriates $135,000,000 for 
     emergency supplemental appropriations for Mozambique, 
     Madagascar, and southern Africa rehabilitation and 
     reconstruction. The House bill proposed $160,000,000 and the 
     Senate amendment proposed $35,000,000. Congress has already 
     provided $25,000,000 in fiscal year 2000 supplemental funds 
     (Public Law 106-246) for this purpose. These funds are 
     provided in the ``International Disaster Assistance'' 
     account. All of these funds are made available only to the 
     extent that the President makes an official budget request 
     that includes designation of the entire amount as an 
     emergency requirement.
       The managers direct that the majority of funds be provided 
     for Mozambique and Madagascar, which suffered the most damage 
     from these cyclones and the resultant flooding. The managers 
     direct that no funds be made available to the government of 
     Zimbabwe. Further, the conference agreement prohibits the use 
     of funds under this title for nonproject assistance. This 
     prohibition is not intended to affect the accelerated 
     disbursement plan developed by AID for local currency 
     projects in Mozambique. The conference agreement allows up to 
     $12,000,000 of the funds appropriated under this heading to 
     be charged to obligations of previously appropriated funds. 
     The conference agreement provides that up to $5,000,000 of 
     the funds under this heading may be used for administrative 
     purposes, and may be merged with AID's operating expenses 
     budget.
       The Administrator of AID is directed to report in writing 
     to the Committees on Appropriations prior to the obligation 
     of any funds under this title. The report shall include a 
     detailed plan regarding a description of the projects and 
     programs to be carried out with these funds; the exact uses 
     of administrative expenses; and the bureau within AID 
     primarily responsible for carrying out these projects.

                  Funds Appropriated to the President

     Operating Expenses of the Agency for International Development

       The conference agreement appropriates $13,000,000 in 
     supplemental funds, to remain available until September 30, 
     2001, for the Operating Expenses of the Agency for 
     International Development. The funding is designated as an 
     emergency requirement and is intended to support the 
     obligation of program funds for southeast Europe. All of 
     these funds are made available only to the extent that the 
     President makes an official budget request that includes 
     designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement. 
     The House addressed this matter in H.R. 3908, the 2000 
     Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed the 
     House on March 30, 2000. The recommended level is the same as 
     that approved by the House. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter.

                  Other Bilateral Economic Assistance


          Assistance for Eastern Europe and the Baltic States

       The conference agreement appropriates $75,825,000 in 
     supplemental funds, to remain available until September 30, 
     2002, for assistance for Montenegro, Croatia, and Serbia. The 
     funding is designated as an emergency requirement. All of 
     these funds are made available only to the extent that the 
     President makes an official budget request that includes 
     designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement. 
     The House addressed this matter in H.R. 3908, the 2000 
     Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed the 
     House on March 30, 2000. The recommended level is 
     the $20,000,000 below the level approved by the House. The 
     Senate amendment did not address this matter.

                          MILITARY ASSISTANCE

                  Funds Appropriated to the President


             International Military Education and Training

       The conference agreement appropriates $2,875,000 in 
     supplemental funds, to remain available until September 30, 
     2002, for grants to countries of the Balkans and southeast 
     Europe notwithstanding section 10 of Public Law 91-672. The 
     funding is designated as an emergency requirement. All of 
     these funds are made available only to the extent that the 
     President makes an official budget request that includes 
     designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement. 
     The House addressed this matter in H.R. 3908, the 2000 
     Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed the 
     House on March 30, 2000. The recommended level is the same as 
     that approved by the House. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter.


                   Foreign Military Financing Program

       The conference agreement appropriates $31,000,000 in 
     supplemental funds, to remain available until September 30, 
     2002, for grants to carry out section 23 of the Arms Export 
     Control Act notwithstanding section 10 of Public Law 91-672. 
     These funds are nonrepayable notwithstanding sections 23(b) 
     and 23(c) of that Act. The funding is designated as an 
     emergency requirement. All of these funds are made available 
     only to the extent that the President makes an official 
     budget request that includes designation of the entire amount 
     as an emergency requirement. The House addressed this matter 
     in H.R. 3908, the 2000 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations 
     Act, which passed the House on March 30, 2000. The 
     recommended level is the same as that approved by the House. 
     The Senate amendment did not address this matter.

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

                           Debt Restructuring

       The conference agreement appropriates $210,000,000 in 
     supplemental funds, to remain available until expended under 
     the terms and conditions as included under this heading in 
     title II of the Act, for additional payments to the HIPC 
     Trust Fund administered by the International Bank for 
     Reconstruction and Development. The funding is designated as 
     an emergency requirement. All of these funds are made 
     available only to the extent that the President makes an 
     official budget request that includes designation of the 
     entire amount as an emergency requirement. The House bill and 
     the Senate amendment did not consider this matter, which was 
     requested as a Fiscal Year 2000 supplemental appropriation.

                       TITLE VII--DEBT REDUCTION

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

                       Bureau of the Public Debt


      GIFTS TO THE UNITED STATES FOR REDUCTION OF THE PUBLIC DEBT

       The conference agreement provides $5,000,000,000 for the 
     account established under section 3113(d) of title 31, United 
     States Code, to reduce the public debt.

             TITLE VIII--INTERNATIONAL DEBT FORGIVENESS AND

              INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS REFORM

       The conference agreement includes language similar to that 
     reported by the Foreign Relations Committee as S. 3129. This 
     matter was not addressed by the House bill and the Senate 
     amendment.
       Section 801 repeals the existing limitation on the 
     availability of earnings on profits of nonpublic gold sales 
     by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and authorizes 
     $435,000,000 for a United States contribution to the Heavily 
     Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Trust Fund. It also requires 
     the Secretary of the Treasury to certify that specified 
     policy reforms are being implemented by the World Bank and 
     the IMF, or, if such certification can not be made, report on 
     the progress, if any, made by the Bank and Fund in adopting 
     and implementing such reform policies.
       Section 802 seeks to strengthen procedures for monitoring 
     use of funds by multilateral development banks (MDBs). 
     Section 803 requires the Comptroller General or the Secretary 
     of the Treasury to make annual reports on the sufficiency of 
     audits of the financial operations of each MDB, actions taken 
     by beneficiary countries to reduce the opportunity for 
     bribery and corruption, and the graduation policies of IDA.
       Section 804 repeals a provision of the Foreign Assistance 
     Act of 1961 relating to bilateral funding for international 
     financial institutions.

     that country and the United States Government.

     assistance or as nonproject sector assistance, that country 
     shall be required to maintain such funds in a separate 
     account and not commingle them with any other funds.
       (2) Applicability of Other Provisions of Law.--Such funds 
     may be obligated and expended notwithstanding provisions of 
     law which are inconsistent with the nature of this assistance 
     including provisions which are referenced in the Joint

       (a) any financial incentive to a business enterprise 
     currently located in the United States for the purpose of 
     inducing such an enterprise to relocate outside the United 
     States if such incentive or inducement is likely to reduce

     United States because United States production is being 
     replaced by such enterprise outside the United States;
       (b) assistance for the purpose of establishing or

     1974, of workers in the recipient country, including any

                         CLEAN COAL TECHNOLOGY

       Sec. 537. (a) Findings.--The Congress finds as follows:
       (1) The United States is the world leader in the 
     development of environmental technologies, particularly clean 
     coal technology.
       (2) Severe pollution problems affecting people in 
     developing countries, and the serious health problems that 
     result from such pollution, can be effectively addressed 
     through the application of United States technology.
       (3) During the next century, developing countries, 
     particularly countries in Asia such as China and India, will 
     dramatically increase their consumption of electricity, and 
     low quality coal will be a major source of fuel for power 
     generation.
       (4) Without the use of modern clean coal technology, the 
     resultant pollution will cause enormous health and 
     environmental problems leading to diminished economic 
     growth in developing countries and, thus, diminished 
     United States exports to those growing markets.
       (b) Statement of Policy.--It is the policy of the United 
     States to promote the export of United States clean coal 
     technology. In furtherance of that policy, the Secretary of 
     State, the Secretary of the Treasury (acting through the 
     United States executive directors to international financial 
     institutions), the Secretary of Energy, and the Administrator 
     of the United States Agency for International Development 
     (USAID) should, as appropriate, vigorously promote the use of 
     United States clean coal technology in environmental and 
     energy infrastructure programs, projects and activities. 
     Programs, projects and activities for which the use of such 
     technology should be considered include reconstruction 
     assistance for the Balkans, activities carried out by the 
     Global Environment Facility,

[[Page H10769]]

     and activities funded from USAID's Development Credit 
     Authority.

     to paragraph (1) shall be effective for no more than a period

policy on terminating the arab league boycott of israel and normalizing 
                         relations with israel

       Sec. 539. It is the sense of the Congress that--
       (1) the Arab League countries should immediately and 
     publicly renounce the primary boycott of Israel and the 
     secondary and tertiary boycott of American firms that have 
     commercial ties with Israel and should normalize their 
     relations with Israel;
       (2) the decision by the Arab League in 1997 to reinstate 
     the boycott against Israel was deeply troubling and 
     disappointing;
       (3) the fact that only three Arab countries maintain full 
     diplomatic relations with Israel is also of deep concern;
       (4) the Arab League should immediately rescind its decision 
     on the boycott and its members should develop normal 
     relations with their neighbor Israel; and
       (5) the President should--
       (A) take more concrete steps to encourage vigorously Arab 
     League countries to renounce publicly the primary boycotts of 
     Israel and the secondary and tertiary boycotts of American 
     firms that have commercial relations with Israel and to 
     normalize their relations with Israel;
       (B) take into consideration the participation of any 
     recipient country in the primary boycott of Israel and the 
     secondary and tertiary boycotts of American firms that have 
     commercial relations with Israel when determining whether to 
     sell weapons to said country;
       (C) report to Congress annually on the specific steps being 
     taken by the United States and the progress achieved to bring 
     about a public renunciation of the Arab primary boycott of 
     Israel and the secondary and tertiary boycotts of American 
     firms that have commercial relations with Israel and to 
     expand the process of normalizing ties between Arab League 
     countries and Israel; and
       (D) encourage the allies and trading partners of the United 
     States to enact laws prohibiting businesses from complying 
     with the boycott and penalizing businesses that do comply.

     of justice in countries in Latin America and the Caribbean 
     and in other regions consistent with the provisions of 
     section 534(b) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, except 
     that programs to enhance protection of participants in 
     judicial cases may be conducted notwithstanding section 660

     Organizations.--Restrictions contained in this or any other 
     Act with respect to assistance for a country shall not be

     Act to carry out the provisions of chapters 1, 10, 11, and 12 
     of part I and chapter 4 of part II of the Foreign Assistance 
     Act of 1961, and from funds appropriated under the heading 
     ``Assistance for Eastern Europe and the Baltic States'': 
     Provided, That the President shall take into consideration, 
     in any case in which a restriction on assistance would be 
     applicable but for this subsection, whether assistance in 
     support of programs of nongovernmental organizations is in 
     the national interest of the United States: Provided further, 
     That before using the authority of this subsection to furnish 
     assistance in support of programs of nongovernmental 
     organizations, the President shall notify the Committees on

     for furnishing such assistance: Provided further, That

       (b) Public Law 480.--During fiscal year 2001, restrictions 
     contained in this or any other Act with respect to assistance

     carry out title I of such Act and made available pursuant to 
     this subsection may be obligated or expended except as

       (c) Exception.--This section shall not apply--
       (1) with respect to section 620A of the Foreign Assistance 
     Act of 1961 or any comparable provision of law prohibiting 
     assistance to countries that support international terrorism; 
     or
       (2) with respect to section 116 of the Foreign Assistance 
     Act of 1961 or any comparable provision of law prohibiting 
     assistance to countries that violate internationally 
     recognized human rights.

       Sec. 542. (a) Funds appropriated by this Act which are 
     earmarked may be reprogrammed for other programs within the 
     same account notwithstanding the earmark if compliance with 
     the earmark is made impossible by operation of any provision 
     of this or any other Act or, with respect to a country with 
     which the United States has an agreement providing the United 
     States with base rights or base access in that country, if 
     the President determines that the recipient for which funds 
     are earmarked has significantly reduced its military or 
     economic cooperation with the United States since the 
     enactment of the Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and 
     Related Programs Appropriations Act, 1991; however, before 
     exercising the authority of this subsection with regard to a 
     base rights or base access country which has significantly 
     reduced its military or economic cooperation with the United 
     States, the President shall consult with, and shall provide a 
     written policy justification to the Committees on 
     Appropriations: Provided, That any such reprogramming shall 
     be subject to the regular notification procedures of the 
     Committees on Appropriations: Provided further, That

     shall be made available under the same terms and conditions 
     as originally provided.
       (b) In addition to the authority contained in subsection 
     (a), the original period of availability of funds 
     appropriated by this Act and administered by the Agency for 
     International Development that are earmarked for particular 
     programs or activities by this or any other Act shall be 
     extended for an additional fiscal year if the Administrator 
     of such agency determines and reports promptly to the 
     Committees on Appropriations that the termination of 
     assistance to a country or a significant change in 
     circumstances makes it unlikely that such earmarked funds can 
     be obligated during the original period of availability: 
     Provided, That such earmarked funds that are continued 
     available for an additional fiscal year shall be obligated 
     only for the purpose of such earmark.


                         ceilings and earmarks

     extent practicable, all agriculture commodities, equipment 
     and products purchased

[[Page H10770]]

     with funds made available in this Act should be American-
     made.
       (c) In providing financial assistance to, or entering into 
     any contract with, any entity using funds made available in 
     this Act, the head of each Federal agency, to the greatest 
     extent practicable, shall provide to such entity a notice 
     describing the statement made in subsection (b) by the 
     Congress.
       (d) The Secretary of the Treasury shall report to Congress 
     annually on the efforts of the heads of each Federal agency 
     and the United States directors of international financial

     chapter 1 of part I of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961,

     at international conferences held under the auspices of

     Act for any consulting service through procurement contract,

       (i) policies providing for the suspension of a loan if 
     funds are being diverted for purposes other than the purpose 
     for which the loan was intended;
       (ii) policies seeking to prevent loans from displacing 
     private sector financing;
       (iii) policies requiring that loans other than project 
     loans must be disbursed--

       (I) on the basis of specific prior reforms; or
       (II) incrementally upon implementation of specific reforms 
     after initial disbursement;

       (iv) policies seeking to minimize the number of projects 
     receiving financing that would displace a population 
     involuntarily or be to the detriment of the people or culture 
     of the area into which the displaced population is to be 
     moved;
       (v) policies vigorously promoting open markets and 
     liberalization of trade in goods and services;
       (vi) policies providing that financing by the Bank

     appropriate qualitative and quantitative indicators to

     funds are being diverted for purposes other than the purpose 
     for which the financing was intended;
       (ii) policies seeking to ensure that financing by the Fund 
     normally serves as a catalyst for private sector financing 
     and does not displace such financing;
       (iii) policies requiring that financing must be disbursed--

       (I) on the basis of specific prior reforms; or
       (II) incrementally upon implementation of specific reforms 
     after initial disbursement;

       (iv) policies vigorously promoting open markets and

     financing; and
       (vi) policies providing for the use, in conjunction with 
     the Bank, of appropriate qualitative and quantitative 
     indicators to measure progress toward graduation from 
     receiving financing on concessionary terms, including an 
     estimated timetable by which countries may graduate over the 
     next 15 years.
       (2) Exception.--In the event that the Secretary cannot 
     certify that a policy described in paragraph (1)(A) or (1)(B) 
     is being implemented, the Secretary shall, not later than 30 
     days after the date of enactment of this Act, submit a report 
     to the appropriate congressional committees on the progress, 
     if any, made by the Bank or the Fund in adopting and 
     implementing such policy, as the case may be.

     strengthen the bank's procedures and management controls 
     intended to ensure that funds disbursed by the bank to 
     borrowing countries are used as intended and in a manner that 
     complies with the conditions of the bank's loan to that 
     country.

[[Page H10777]]

       (b) Progress Evaluation.--Not later than 180 days after the 
     date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall submit to 
     the appropriate congressional committees a report evaluating 
     the progress made toward achieving the objectives of 
     subsection (a), including a description of--
       (1) any progress made in improving the supervision, 
     monitoring, and auditing of programs and projects supported 
     by each multilateral development bank, in order to identify 
     and reduce bribery and corruption;
       (2) any progress made in developing each multilateral

     assistance;
       (3) country-specific anticorruption programs supported by 
     each multilateral development bank;
       (4) actions taken to identify and discipline multilateral

     persons or entities outside such bank.
       (b) Annual Report on United States Supported Policies.--

     the appropriate congressional committees on--
       (1) the actions taken by recipient countries, as a result 
     of the assistance allocated to them by the multilateral 
     development banks under programs referred to in section 
     802(b), to strengthen governance and reduce the opportunity 
     for bribery and corruption; and
       (2) how International Development Association-financed 
     projects contribute to the eventual graduation of a 
     representative sample of countries from reliance on financing 
     on concessionary terms and international development 
     assistance.
       (c) Amendment of Report on Fund.--Section 1705(a) of the 
     International Financial Institutions Act (22 U.S.C. 262r-
     4(a)) is amended--
       (1) by inserting ``(1)'' before ``the progress''; and
       (2) by inserting before the period at the end the

     history of debt relief programs led by, or coordinated with, 
     international financial institutions, including but not 
     limited to--
       (1) the extent to which poor countries and the poorest-of-
     the-poor benefit from debt relief, including measurable 
     evidence of any such benefits; and
       (2) the extent to which debt relief contributes to the 
     graduation of a country from reliance on financing on 
     concessionary terms and international development assistance.

     SEC. 804. REPEAL OF BILATERAL FUNDING FOR INTERNATIONAL 
                   FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS.

       Section 209(d) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 (22 
     U.S.C. 2169(d); relating to bilateral funding for 
     international financial institutions) is repealed.
       Sec. 805. Refocused Activities of the IMF. The Bretton 
     Woods Agreement Act is amended by adding the following new 
     section--

     ``SEC. 63. PRINCIPLES FOR INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND 
                   LENDING.

       ``It is the policy of the United States to work to 
     implement reforms in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to 
     achieve the following goals:
       ``(a) Short-Term Balance of Payments Financing.--Lending 
     from the general resources of the Fund should concentrate 
     chiefly on short-term balance of payments financing.
       ``(b) Limitations on Medium-Term Financing.--Use of medium-
     term lending from the general resources of the Fund should be 
     limited to a set of well-defined circumstances, such as--
       ``(1) when a member's balance of payments problems will be 
     protracted,
       ``(2) such member has a strong structural reform program in 
     place, and
       ``(3) the member has little or no access to private sources 
     of capital.
       ``(c) Premium Pricing.--Premium pricing should be 
     introduced for lending from the general resources of the 
     Fund, for greater than 200 per centum of a member's quota in 
     the Fund, to discourage excessive use of Fund lending and to 
     encourage members to rely on private financing to the maximum 
     extent possible.
       ``(d) Redressing Misreporting of Information.--The Fund 
     should have in place and apply systematically a strong 
     framework of safeguards and measures to respond to, correct, 
     and discourage cases of misreporting of information in the 
     context of a Fund program, including--
       ``(1) Suspending Fund disbursements and ensuring that Fund 
     lending is not resumed to members that engage in serious 
     misreporting of material information until such time as 
     remedial actions and sanctions, as appropriate, have been 
     applied;
       ``(2) Ensuring that members make early repayments, where 
     appropriate, of Fund resources disbursed on the basis of 
     misreported information;
       ``(3) Making public cases of serious misreporting of 
     material information;
       ``(4) Requiring all members receiving new disbursements 
     from the Fund to undertake annually independent audits of 
     central bank financial statements and publish the resulting 
     audits; and
       ``(5) Requiring all members seeking new loans from the Fund 
     to provide to the Fund detailed information regarding their 
     internal control procedures, financial reporting and audit 
     mechanisms and, in cases where there are questions about the 
     adequacy of these systems, undertaking an on-site review and 
     identifying needed remedies.''.

               TITLE I--EXPORT AND INVESTMENT ASSISTANCE

                Export-Import Bank of the United States


                         subsidy appropriation

       The conference agreement appropriates $865,000,000 for the 
     subsidy appropriation of the Export-Import Bank instead of 
     $768,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $742,500,000 as 
     proposed by the House.


                        administrative expenses

       The conference agreement appropriates $62,000,000 for 
     administrative expenses of the Export-Import Bank instead of 
     $58,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $55,000,000 as 
     proposed by the House. The conferees also have included a 
     limitation of $30,000 on representation expenses of members 
     of the Bank's Board of Directors.
       The managers are very concerned by the Bank's recent 
     consideration of a change to its regulations that would 
     reduce the volume of U.S. exports financed by the Bank that 
     are subject to cargo preference regulations. The managers 
     direct that none of the funds provided under this heading in 
     this or prior year appropriation acts shall be used to plan, 
     finalize, or implement any notice, regulation, or change in 
     policy with regard to Public Resolution 17 (46 App. U.S.C. 
     1241-1)(1998).

                Overseas Private Investment Corporation


                           non-credit account

       The conference agreement provides $38,000,000 for 
     administrative expenses of the Overseas Private Investment 
     Corporation (OPIC) as proposed by the Senate instead of 
     $37,000,000 as proposed by the House.
       The managers urge OPIC to refrain from entering into 
     contracts involving the Palestinian Authority until the 
     Committees have been informed that contract disputes between 
     the Authority and United States corporate entities have been 
     resolved.

                      Trade and Development Agency

       The conference agreement appropriates $50,000,000 for the 
     Trade and Development Agency instead of $46,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate and the House. It does not include 
     language regarding reimbursements as proposed by the Senate.

                TITLE II--BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  Agency for International Development


                child survival and disease programs fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $963,000,000 for the 
     Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund instead of 
     $886,000,000 as

[[Page H10778]]

     proposed by the House. The Senate bill contained no provision 
     on this matter, but included regular and emergency funds for 
     these activities under ``Development Assistance'' and 
     ``Global Health''. The conference agreement also continues 
     limitations on the use of the Fund for non-project 
     assistance.
       The managers include a United States contribution to 
     UNICEF, and AID's program to promote basic education for 
     children, within the Child Survival and Disease Programs 
     Fund, as proposed by the House.
       The conference agreement includes language allocating 
     $963,000,000 among six program categories in the Child 
     Survival and Disease Programs Fund: $295,000,000 for child 
     survival and maternal health, including vaccine-preventable 
     diseases such as polio; $30,000,000 for vulnerable children; 
     $300,000,000 for HIV/AIDS; $125,000,000 for other infectious 
     diseases; $103,000,000 for children's basic education; and 
     $110,000,000 for UNICEF. The conferees expect that any change 
     proposed subsequent to the allocation as directed in bill 
     language will be subject to the requirements of section 515 
     of the Act. A full definition of these program categories and 
     their components can be found on pages 8 through 10 of House 
     Report 106-270.
       Within the child survival and maternal health program, 
     authority is provided to transfer up to $50,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate to a fund established for child 
     immunization by the Global Alliance for Vaccines and 
     Immunization (GAVI). The House bill provided authority to 
     transfer up to $37,500,000 to GAVI. The managers are 
     supportive of the GAVI and direct that the Committees be 
     informed in writing 20 days prior to the obligation of any 
     funds for GAVI on the proposed use of any U.S. contribution, 
     particularly with regard to the amount to be donated for 
     procurement of vaccines for children.
       The managers note that a large part of the vulnerable 
     children program assists AIDS orphans, who also benefit from 
     the HIV/AIDS program. Although the conference agreement does 
     not include bill language regarding funding for blind 
     children, as proposed by the Senate, the managers recommend 
     not less than $1,200,000 for assistance for blind children. 
     The managers also support a total of $5,000,000 for the 
     Kiwanis/UNICEF Iodine Deficiency program, with $2,500,000 
     from the Child Survival and Disease Programs account and 
     $2,500,000 from regional accounts for Europe and Eurasia. AID 
     is also encouraged to provide up to $2,000,000 to support 
     non-governmental organizations, such as Special Olympics, 
     that work with older children, including those with cognitive 
     disabilities and mild mental retardation, to teach life and 
     job skills. The vulnerable children program and AID's Office 
     of Private Voluntary Cooperation are encouraged to provide 
     small matching grants to American-led volunteer programs in 
     India and other nations that seek to remedy physical 
     disabilities through reconstructive surgery.
       The conference agreement includes $315,000,000 for HIV/
     AIDS, of which $300,000,000 is allocated within this account 
     and not less than $15,000,000 in other accounts and programs. 
     The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     concerning microbicides. However, the managers endorse the 
     Senate report language on microbicides and direct that not 
     less than $15,000,000 from the HIV/AIDS program and the 
     ``Development Assistance'' account be made available to the 
     Office of Health and Nutrition for microbicide research and 
     development. These funds are to be managed by the Director of 
     the HIV/AIDS Division. In addition, the managers support the 
     International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), which seeks to 
     accelerate the development and distribution of an effective 
     AIDS vaccine for use in developing countries. The managers 
     urge that not less than $10,000,000 be provided as a 
     contribution to the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative.
       In addition, the managers direct AID to make available 
     $500,000 for a proposal from the University of California at 
     San Francisco to develop detailed epidemiological HIV/AIDS 
     profiles for priority countries and an online, searchable 
     database of key comparative indicators. The managers also 
     encourage AID to collaborate with the Peace Corps' HIV/AIDS 
     initiative, especially in supporting training activities.
       The expected results of funds to develop and promote the 
     use of vaccines in developing countries will also assist 
     international travelers to endemic areas. The managers urge 
     the Department of State and AID to require staff, grantees, 
     and contractors to take all feasible steps to reduce the 
     importation of vaccine-preventible infectious diseases, such 
     as hepatitis, into the United States.
       The managers note that the Global AIDS and Tuberculosis 
     Relief Act of 2000 (P.L. 106-264) authorized that 65 percent 
     of the HIV/AIDS funding be provided through non-governmental 
     organizations (NGOs). The managers concur that NGOs, 
     including religious institutions and faith based 
     organizations, provide invaluable services in the fight 
     against HIV/AIDS. In anticipation of an increasing 
     involvement of the public sector, particularly in the areas 
     of treatment and the provision of interventions to reduce 
     mother-to-child transmission, the managers agree that 
     assistance provided through NGOs in cooperation with a 
     foreign government or using government facilities may be 
     counted against the 65 percent target in AID's strategy to 
     implement the Act.
       Within the HIV/AIDS program, authority is provided to 
     transfer $20,000,000 to the fund authorized by section 141 of 
     the Global AIDS and Tuberculosis Relief Act. The managers 
     expect the Secretary of the Treasury and the Administrator of 
     the Agency for International Development to report to the 
     Committees no later than April 30, 2001 on progress toward 
     establishment of an international AIDS Trust Fund 
     administered by the World Bank.
       The managers urge that expanded resources be made available 
     to mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) programs. As effective 
     implementation of MTCT programs will take time, during which 
     health care workers will be trained, laboratory and testing 
     facilities established, and community based care services for 
     HIV positive mothers developed, AID may not be able to meet 
     the Global AIDS Act's 8.3 percent MTCT funding target in 
     fiscal year 2001. The managers expect that USAID will achieve 
     the MTCT target by the end of fiscal year 2002.
       The conference agreement includes at least $60,000,000 from 
     all accounts to address the global health threat from 
     tuberculosis, including not less than $45,000,000 from the 
     other infectious diseases program in the Child Survival and 
     Disease Programs Fund. The managers urge AID to continue to 
     work in close collaboration with organizations such as the 
     U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the World Health 
     Organization, the Gorgas Memorial Institute, and the Global 
     STOP TB Initiative to implement effective tuberculosis 
     control programs at the local level. The managers direct AID 
     to continue and expand TB programs undertaken in cooperation 
     with federal and state governments in Mexico, especially 
     along Mexico's borders with Texas, California, Arizona, New 
     Mexico, and Guatemala.
       The other infectious diseases program also includes 
     $30,000,000 for antimicrobial resistance and infectious 
     disease surveillance, and $50,000,000 for international 
     efforts to reduce the incidence of malaria. Drug resistant 
     parasites and insecticide-resistant mosquitoes exacerbate 
     malaria transmission and place millions throughout the world 
     at risk of a crippling and often fatal disease. For this 
     reason, the managers encourage USAID to designate $2,000,000 
     to support the establishment of coordinated centers of 
     excellence for malaria research, to focus on tropical and 
     sub-tropical regions. The managers support and urge AID to 
     favorably consider proposals for a concerted approach to 
     limiting the resurgence of malaria that are submitted jointly 
     by the University of Notre Dame's Vector Biology Laboratory, 
     Tulane University's Department of Tropical Medicine in New 
     Orleans, and Latin American and African counterpart 
     institutions.
       The managers are aware that the HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis 
     crises require extraordinary efforts on the part of the U.S. 
     Government. USAID is encouraged to use, as appropriate, its 
     existing waiver authorities regarding financing and 
     procurement of goods and services, and grant making, in order 
     to expedite the provision of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis 
     assistance and enhance the efficiency of that assistance.
       The managers support and urge AID to favorably consider 
     proposals by Carelift International. The managers anticipate 
     that the ongoing, multiyear collaboration between AID and 
     Carelift International will be expanded and require 
     $7,000,000, including future year appropriations. The 
     conference agreement does not include Senate language 
     directing AID to make available to Carelift International up 
     to $7,000,000 from fiscal year 2001 funds only.
       The managers also direct AID to continue to provide the 
     Committees with a detailed annual report not later than 
     February 15, 2001, on the programs, projects, and activities 
     undertaken by the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund 
     during fiscal year 2000.
       Funds appropriated for the Child Survival and Disease 
     Programs Fund are intended to be used for programs, projects 
     and activities. Funds for administrative expenses to manage 
     Fund activities are provided in a separate account, with two 
     exceptions included in the conference agreement: authority 
     for AID's central and regional bureaus to use up to $125,000 
     from program funds for Operating Expense-funded personnel to 
     better monitor and provide oversight of the Fund; and, in 
     section 522, authority to use up to $16,000,000 to reimburse 
     other government agencies and private institutions for 
     professional services. Any proposed transfer of 
     appropriations from the Fund for administrative expenses of 
     AID under any other authority shall be subject to section 515 
     of this Act.


                         Development Assistance

       The conference agreement appropriates $1,305,000,000 for 
     ``Development Assistance'' instead of $1,258,000,000 as 
     proposed by the House and $1,368,250,000 as proposed by the 
     Senate. The Senate included funding for programs carried out 
     by the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' under its 
     ``Development Assistance'' account.
       Of the funds under this heading, the conference agreement 
     appropriates up to $12,000,000 for the Inter-American 
     Foundation and up to $16,000,000 to the African Development 
     Foundation. The House bill proposed up to $10,000,000 for the 
     Inter-American Foundation and up to $16,000,000 for the 
     African Development Foundation. The Senate amendment did not 
     propose funding for the Inter-American Foundation and 
     provided up to $14,400,000 for the African Development 
     Foundation. Section 591 of the conference agreement provides 
     the President with the

[[Page H10779]]

     authority to abolish the Inter-American Foundation during 
     fiscal year 2001.
       The Senate amendment proposed that not less than 
     $425,000,000 be made available to carry out section 104(b) of 
     the Foreign Assistance Act, regarding international 
     population planning assistance. The House addressed this 
     matter in section 586 of its bill and placed a ceiling of 
     $385,000,000 on bilateral family planning assistance. The 
     conference agreement addresses funding and restrictions for 
     international family planning in section 598.
       The conference agreement does not include language 
     contained in the Senate amendment providing that $2,500,000 
     may be transferred from this account to the ``International 
     Organizations and Programs'' account to provide a total 
     contribution of $5,000,000 to the International Fund for 
     Agricultural Development (IFAD). The conference agreement 
     provides $5,000,000 from title IV of this Act for IFAD, as 
     proposed by the House.
       The conference agreement includes bill language similar to 
     the Senate amendment that not less than $310,000,000 should 
     be provided for agriculture and rural development programs 
     through Foreign Assistance Act funds and through Support for 
     East European Development Act funds. The House bill did not 
     address this matter. The managers continue to support 
     international agriculture and rural development activities 
     and direct AID to increase funding for these important 
     programs.
       The conference agreement provides that, of the funds for 
     agriculture and rural development programs, $30,000,000 
     should be provided for biotechnology research and 
     development. The conference agreement does not include bill 
     language for the University of Missouri-St. Louis 
     International Laboratory for Tropical Agriculture 
     biotechnology program (ILTAP), as proposed by the Senate. 
     However, the managers support and urge AID to favorably 
     consider $1,000,000 for ILTAP to train scientists from 
     Southeast Asia in methods to fight diseases that threaten 
     rice, tomatoes, and cassava which the managers believe will 
     play a key role in stabilizing the food supply for the 
     region.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language for 
     the University of California, Davis, as proposed by the 
     Senate. However, the managers support and urge AID to 
     favorably consider $1,000,000 for the University of 
     California, Davis to support research and to train foreign 
     scientists in programs which address improving crop 
     agriculture in Central Africa.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language for 
     Tuskegee University, as proposed by the Senate. However, the 
     managers support and urge AID to favorably consider 
     $1,000,000 to establish a ``Center to Promote Biotechnology 
     in International Agriculture'' at Tuskegee University. This 
     center will promote extension and outreach aimed at policy 
     makers, the media, farmers, and consumers in cooperation with 
     local scientists. The emphasis should be to identify 
     agricultural genetic technology applications crucial to 
     combating hunger, malnutrition, and boosting low incomes in 
     rural areas.
       The conferees agree that Marquette University's Les Aspin 
     Center for Government, which has been carrying out training 
     programs for Africans in democracy and leadership, should 
     receive the same consideration as similar programs at other 
     Universities mentioned in the Senate report.
       The conference agreement provides that not less than 
     $2,300,000 should be made available for a core grant to the 
     International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), which is 
     similar to the Senate amendment. The House bill did not 
     address this matter. The managers strongly support the 
     fertilizer-related research and development being conducted 
     by IFDC and direct the Administrator of AID to make at least 
     $4,000,000 available to IFDC, including not less than 
     $2,300,000 for its core grant.
       The conference agreement provides not less than $5,200,000 
     for AmeriCares for the construction, rehabilitation, and 
     operation of community-based primary healthcare facilities in 
     Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
       The conference agreement provides that $500,000 should be 
     made available for support of the United States 
     Telecommunications Training Institute. The Senate amendment 
     included bill language mandating that such funds be made 
     available for this purpose. The House bill did not address 
     this matter.
       The conference agreement provides that $17,000,000 should 
     be made available for the American Schools and Hospitals 
     Abroad (ASHA) program. The Senate amendment included bill 
     language mandating that such funds be made available for this 
     purpose. The House bill did not address this matter. The 
     managers direct ASHA to give full consideration to grant 
     proposals from all qualified institutions. These may include 
     grant proposals for curriculum, staff support, and related 
     expenses and for expansion of overseas facilities owned and 
     operated by U.S. based, non-profit educational institutions. 
     No regulation, statute, or congressional directive precludes 
     ASHA funds from being utilized for these purposes.
       The conference agreement provides that not less than 
     $2,000,000 should be made available to support an 
     international media training center. The Senate amendment 
     included bill language mandating that such funds be made 
     available for this purpose. The House bill did not address 
     this matter.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     proposed in the Senate amendment which provided up to 
     $7,000,000 for Carelift International. The House bill did not 
     address this matter. The managers have addressed Carelift 
     International in the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs 
     Fund'' section of the statement of the managers.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     providing up to $1,500,000 to develop and integrate education 
     programs aimed at eliminating female genital mutilation 
     (FGM), as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House bill 
     did not address this matter. The managers direct the 
     Secretary of State to determine the prevalence of the 
     practice of FGM and the existence and enforcement of laws 
     prohibiting this practice. The Secretary shall submit to the 
     Committees on Appropriations, not later than March 1, 2001, 
     these findings and recommendations on how the United States 
     government can best work to eliminate this practice. The 
     managers direct AID to make available $1,500,000 to develop 
     and integrate into development strategies, where appropriate, 
     educational programs aimed at eliminating FGM. Further, the 
     managers direct that AID's fiscal year 2002 budget 
     justification include a narrative regarding the agency's 
     proposed budget and programs in this area.
       The managers continue to be concerned about worldwide 
     trafficking of women and children and direct AID to provide 
     not less than $2,500,000, including funds from under the 
     heading ``Independent States'', to continue and expand these 
     anti-trafficking programs.
       The managers strongly support the Collaborative Research 
     Support Programs (CRSPs), as stated in the House and Senate 
     reports. Prior to the submission of the report required by 
     section 653 of the Foreign Assistance Act, AID is directed to 
     consult with the Committees on Appropriations regarding the 
     proposed allocation of agriculture, rural development and 
     CRSPs resources.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     proposed in the Senate amendment providing $1,500,000 for 
     Habitat for Humanity International for construction of 
     housing in northern India. The House did not address this 
     matter in bill language. The managers request that the 
     Department of State coordinate with AID in determining the 
     funding responsibility for long-term assistance for Tibetan 
     refugees, including assistance to refugees residing in India. 
     In this regard, the managers would support the proposal to 
     fund the Tibetan Resettlement Project in Dehradum, India, 
     consistent with Tibetan cultural practices. These funds 
     should be in addition to those allocated for Tibetan refugees 
     in ``Migration and Refugee Assistance''.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     proposed by the Senate amendment regarding microenterprise. 
     The House bill did not address this matter. Microenterprise 
     authorization is included in Public Law 106-309.
       The managers continue to believe that protecting 
     biodiversity and tropical forests in developing countries is 
     critical to the global environment and U.S. economic 
     prosperity, especially for the agricultural and 
     pharmaceutical industries. The managers direct AID to 
     continue to work to increase overall biodiversity funding, as 
     well as funding to the Office of Environment and Natural 
     Resources, consistent with the House and Senate reports. Not 
     later than 60 days after enactment of this Act, AID shall 
     report to the Committees on Appropriations regarding the 
     proposed allocation of resources for biodiversity on a 
     bureau-by-bureau basis.
       The conference agreement does not include bill language 
     regarding the Foundation for Environmental Security and 
     Sustainability, as proposed in the Senate amendment. The 
     House bill did not address this matter. The managers support 
     and urge AID to favorably consider $2,500,000 for the 
     Foundation for Environmental Security and Sustainability to 
     support environmental threat assessments with 
     interdisciplinary experts and academicians utilizing various 
     technologies to address issues such as infectious diseases, 
     and environmental indicators and warnings as they pertain to 
     the security of a region.
       The managers support the work of Alfalit International, an 
     educational nongovernmental organization dedicated to 
     promotion of literacy, elementary education, and community 
     development in Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. 
     Alfalit's proven record during the past three decades has 
     helped significantly reduce child and adult illiteracy 
     throughout Latin America and Africa. The managers direct AID 
     to provide $1,500,000 to Alfalit to develop and implement 
     programs to combat adult illiteracy in countries in which AID 
     operates.
       The managers encourage AID to support initiatives designed 
     to promote child safety in developing countries such as those 
     designed and carried out by the National Safe Kids Campaign. 
     The managers believe that developing countries could benefit 
     greatly from the 300 local programs already operating 
     throughout the United States.
       The managers support and direct AID to provide up to 
     $1,000,000 for the Center for Latin American Trade Expansion 
     at the University of San Francisco to assist in the 
     development of trade promotion initiatives at the USF 
     Business School's Center for Economic Development.
       The managers commend the progress made by the Eastern 
     European Real Property Program in the Europe and Eurasia 
     Bureau since 1992. As the program expands into

[[Page H10780]]

     other regions as the International Real Property Program 
     (IRPP), the Committee recommends that other AID regional 
     bureaus and missions seriously consider cooperation with the 
     IRPP as housing, shelter, and urban activities are included 
     in country strategies. The managers encourage AID to fund the 
     IRPP at a level not less than the fiscal year 1998 amount.


                     Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund

       The managers direct that $12,000,000 be provided through 
     the ``Patrick Leahy War Victims Fund'' to address the 
     medical, rehabilitative, economic and social needs of war 
     victims, particularly those who have been severely disabled 
     from landmines and other unexploded ordnance. Of this amount, 
     up to $10,000,000 is to be funded from the ``Development 
     Assistance'' account and the ``Economic Support Fund.'' The 
     balance should be funded from Office of Transition 
     Initiatives resources, and with funds from the demining 
     budget of the ``Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining 
     and Related Programs'' account.


                                 Cyprus

       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     provides not less than $15,000,000 of the funds made 
     available under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic 
     Support Fund'' for assistance for Cyprus for scholarships, 
     administrative support of the scholarship program, bicommunal 
     projects, and measures aimed at reunification of the island. 
     The House bill did not address this matter.


                                Lebanon

       The conference agreement includes language that provides 
     that not less than $35,000,000 of the funds made available 
     under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support 
     Fund'' shall be made available for Lebanon to be used, among 
     other programs, for scholarships and direct support of the 
     American educational institutions in Lebanon. The language is 
     similar to House and Senate language that provided that not 
     less than $18,000,000 should be made available for Lebanon 
     for these purposes.
       The managers are troubled by reports of the abduction to 
     Lebanon of American children by estranged parents, and urge 
     the Lebanese Government to assist in locating and returning 
     these children to the United States.


                                 Burma

       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     provides not less than $6,500,000 of the funds made available 
     under ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic Support 
     Fund'' for assistance to support democracy activities in 
     Burma and for other specified activities. These funds are 
     made available notwithstanding any other provision of law, 
     and shall be subject to the regular notification procedures 
     of the Committees on Appropriations. Of these funds, 
     $3,500,000 should be derived from ``Economic Support Fund'' 
     and $3,000,000 should be derived from ``Development 
     Assistance''. The House bill did not address this matter.
       The managers are deeply concerned by recent actions taken 
     by the SPDC to limit efforts by Aung San Suu Kyi to travel 
     outside Rangoon to meet with members of the National League 
     for Democracy (NLD). On two separate occasions, she has been 
     detained or blocked from carrying out reasonable and legal 
     political organization activities. During the past year, Aung 
     San Suu Kyi has continued to call upon the junta to 
     participate in a dialogue to bring about reconciliation and 
     democracy. The response from the junta has been to escalate 
     repression of democratic activists and further isolate and 
     attempt to intimidate Aung San Suu Kyi. The conferees commend 
     the NLD and its leadership for its continued courage and 
     effort to restore democracy to Burma.
       In addition, the managers take note of the conditions under 
     which Min Ko Naing continues to suffer. In 1989, he led 
     students in non-violent protests against the military regime 
     and was an outspoken supporter for democracy and human 
     rights. For his actions, Min Ko Niang was arrested and 
     ultimately sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in solitary 
     confinement in the notorious Insein Prison. Min Ko Niang has 
     been offered immediate release by the military junta in 
     return for signing a statement renouncing the democracy 
     movement and abandoning any future activity in politics. He 
     has steadfastly refused to sign any document. In recognition 
     of his courage, the managers direct that not less than 
     $250,000 of the funds made available be dedicated to 
     establishing a Min Ko Niang student scholarship and support 
     fund.


                           Conservation Fund

       The conference agreement includes a provision, which is 
     similar to the Senate amendment, that not less than 
     $4,000,000 should be made available for the Conservation 
     Fund. The House bill did not address this matter. The 
     managers direct that not less than $4,000,000 be provided 
     equally from ``Development Assistance'' and ``Economic 
     Support Fund'' to support the preservation of habitats and 
     related activities for endangered wildlife, including 
     $1,500,000 for programs to protect orangutans in Indonesia, 
     $1,500,000 for programs to protect gorillas in central 
     Africa, and $1,000,000 for programs to protect cheetahs in 
     Namibia. The managers direct AID to consult with the 
     Committees in advance on the proposed uses of these funds.


                  Private and Voluntary Organizations

       The conference agreement includes language proposed by the 
     House and the Senate providing that funds appropriated for 
     development assistance programs should be available to 
     private and voluntary organizations at a level which is at 
     least equivalent to the level provided in fiscal year 1995. 
     The conference agreement also requires that the Administrator 
     of AID inform the Committees on Appropriations prior to 
     waiving the requirement that private voluntary organizations 
     receive at least 20 percent of their total annual funding for 
     international activities from sources other than the United 
     States government. The House bill included a similar 
     provision.


                   International Disaster Assistance

       The conference agreement appropriates $165,000,000 for 
     ``International Disaster Assistance'', as proposed by the 
     House bill, instead of $220,000,000 as proposed by the Senate 
     amendment. The managers recommend the establishment of a 
     separate account for AID's Office of Transition Initiatives. 
     Therefore, the conference agreement provides the necessary 
     resources requested to meet all existing and projected 
     disaster needs in fiscal year 2001.
       The managers are concerned by reports of quality problems 
     in food aid commodities, including significant losses of 
     micro-nutrients during production and field preparation, and 
     believe that urgent action is needed to improve the quality 
     of commodities provided to vulnerable populations and ensure 
     the delivery of essential nutrients. The managers direct the 
     Administrator of AID, after consultation with agriculture 
     commodity producers and private voluntary organizations, to 
     establish a plan and mechanism to ensure cooperation between 
     AID and the Department of Agriculture to improve and assure 
     the quality of commodities provided under this Act.


                         Transition Initiatives

       The conference agreement appropriates $50,000,000 for a new 
     account for Transition Initiatives to support AID's Office of 
     Transition Initiatives (OTI). The House bill proposed 
     $40,000,000 for this account. The Senate amendment included 
     funding for OTI activities within the ``International 
     Disaster Assistance'' account. The conference agreement does 
     not preclude OTI from using resources transferred from other 
     development and economic assistance funds in this Act. The 
     conference agreement requires that AID submit a report to the 
     Appropriations Committees not less than five days prior to 
     beginning a new program of assistance. The House bill 
     contained a similar provision.


         micro and small enterprise development program account

       The conference agreement appropriates $1,500,000 for direct 
     loans and loan guarantees and $500,000 for administrative 
     expenses for micro and small enterprise activities as 
     proposed by the House bill. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter.


                   development credit program account

                     (including transfer of funds)

       The conference agreement appropriates $1,500,000 in a 
     direct appropriation and up to $5,000,000 by transfer from 
     funds made available under the heading ``Development 
     Assistance'' for the cost of loans and loan guarantees for 
     AID's Development Credit Program Account, as proposed by the 
     House. In addition, the conference agreement provides 
     $4,000,000 for administrative expenses which may be 
     transferred to and merged with AID's ``Operating Expenses'' 
     account, as proposed by the Senate. The House bill proposed 
     $6,495,000 for administrative expenses. The managers endorse 
     House report language directing the use of funds under this 
     heading for an integrated municipal infrastructure and 
     housing program in Costa Rica.


     operating expenses of the agency for international development

       The conference agreement appropriates $520,000,000, instead 
     of $509,000,000 proposed by the House and $510,000,000 
     proposed by the Senate, for Operating Expenses of the Agency 
     for International Development. The conference agreement 
     prohibits the use of funds in this account to finance the 
     construction or long-term lease of offices for use by AID 
     unless the Administrator of AID reports in writing to the 
     Appropriations Committees prior to the obligation of funds 
     for such purposes, as proposed by the House.

     Operating Expenses of the Agency for International Development


                      office of inspector general

       The conference agreement appropriates $27,000,000 for 
     Operating Expenses of the Agency for International 
     Development, Office of Inspector General, as proposed by the 
     House. The Senate amendment proposed $25,000,000.

                  Other Bilateral Economic Assistance


                         economic support fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $2,295,000,000 for 
     the Economic Support Fund instead of $2,208,900,000 as 
     proposed by the House and $2,220,000,000 as proposed by the 
     Senate.
       The conference agreement contains Senate language that 
     provides not less than $840,000,000 for Israel and not less 
     than $695,000,000 for Egypt, instead of not to exceed those 
     sums as proposed by the House. In addition, Senate language 
     is included that provides not less than $200,000,000 for the 
     Commodity Import Program in Egypt. The House bill did not 
     address this matter.
       The conference agreement does not contain Senate language 
     that would have authorized the use of up to the Egyptian 
     pound equivalent of $50,000,000 for certain specified 
     activities. The House bill did not address this matter.

[[Page H10781]]

       The conference agreement includes language that provides 
     that in exercising the authority to provide cash transfer 
     assistance for Israel, the President shall ensure that Israel 
     enters into a side letter agreement proportional to the 
     fiscal year 1999 agreement.
       The conference agreement also includes language that 
     provides that not less than $150,000,000 should be made 
     available for assistance for Jordan. The Senate language 
     would have mandated this level of support. The House bill did 
     not address this matter. The conference agreement does not 
     contain Senate language that would have provided $2,000,000 
     for the American Center for Oriental Research, but the 
     managers support this proposal and urge the Department of 
     State and the Agency for International Development to give it 
     favorable consideration.
       The conference agreement includes House language that 
     states that not less than $12,000,000 should be made 
     available for Mongolia. The Senate amendment did not address 
     this matter.
       The conference agreement also includes House language that 
     requires that funds obligated for regional or global programs 
     shall be subject to the regular notification procedures of 
     the Committees on Appropriations. The Senate amendment did 
     not address this matter.
       The conference agreement provides that $5,000,000 should be 
     made available for economic rehabilitation and related 
     activities in the Aceh region of Indonesia. In May 2000, 
     representatives of the Indonesian government and the Free 
     Aceh Movement signed a Joint Understanding on a Humanitarian 
     Pause for Aceh. Since signing the understanding 
     representatives have met and agreed upon a number of projects 
     which would address humanitarian and economic needs in Aceh. 
     The managers support this dialogue and urge AID through the 
     Office of Transition Initiatives to promptly provide 
     assistance to projects agreed upon by both parties which 
     further the objectives of the Joint Understanding and support 
     a resolution to the conflict in Aceh.
       The managers encourage AID to support effective economic 
     restructuring and decentralization programs, where feasible, 
     in key regions throughout Indonesia, especially in the 
     Moluccas and other areas of Eastern Indonesia.
       The conference agreement also includes language that 
     provides that not less than $25,000,000 shall be made 
     available for East Timor. The House bill did not address this 
     matter. The managers strongly support AID's Economic 
     Rehabilitation and Development Project, also known as the 
     East Timor Coffee Project. The managers are concerned about 
     reports that certain individuals in East Timor are seeking to 
     restore monopolistic control of coffee production, that would 
     jeopardize the livelihoods of thousands of farmers. The 
     managers will continue to closely monitor this project. The 
     managers are also aware of the importance of the 
     Consolidated Fund for East Timor and expect that the 
     United States will provide up to $4,500,000. The managers 
     also urge AID to continue supporting activities that will 
     improve the economy and establish democratic practices.
       The conference agreement also includes language similar to 
     that from the Senate amendment that provides that up to 
     $10,000,000 may be used, notwithstanding any other provision 
     of law and subject to the regular notification procedures of 
     the Committees on Appropriations, to provide certain 
     specified assistance to the National Democratic Alliance of 
     Sudan. The House bill did not address this matter. The 
     conference agreement does not include section 597 of the 
     Senate amendment regarding reporting requirements on Sudan. 
     However, the managers direct that the Secretary of State 
     report not later than March 1, 2001, describing the areas of 
     Sudan which are open to Operation Lifeline Sudan (OLS) and 
     those areas which are prohibited, and the reasons for these 
     prohibitions; the extent of actual deliveries of assistance 
     through OLS since January 1997; the areas of Sudan where the 
     United States has provided assistance outside of OLS since 
     January 1997, including the amount, extent and nature of that 
     assistance; and an assessment of the humanitarian needs in 
     areas of Sudan not served by OLS.
       The managers encourage USAID to provide an additional 
     $1,000,000 in Economic Support Funds during fiscal year 2001 
     to support Phase II of the Haiti Health Systems 2004 Project. 
     The additional resources will ensure that financial support 
     to health providers operating under performance based 
     contracts will not be reduced below fiscal year 2000 levels.
       The managers support and urge the State Department to 
     favorably consider the allocation of at least $250,000 in 
     funding for South Korean nongovernmental organizations 
     involved in activities to promote democratization efforts in 
     North Korea. Such funds should be programmed through the 
     National Endowment for Democracy.
       The managers support the House report language providing 
     $1,000,000 for the Reagan/Fascell Democracy Fellows Program 
     of the National Endowment for Democracy.
       The managers support the budget request of $20,000,000 for 
     assistance for Cambodia through nongovernmental organizations 
     (NGO's) and local governments, as appropriate. No support 
     would be available to or through the central government. The 
     managers support assistance for such activities as health 
     (especially to combat HIV/AIDS), education, environmental 
     protection and democratization. In addition, the managers 
     strongly support funding through NGO's to assist in efforts 
     to halt illegal logging operations. The managers also endorse 
     the House report language regarding the Cambodian Mine Action 
     Center. Finally, the managers commend the work of the 
     Documentation Center of Cambodia, which has painstakingly 
     cataloged the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge. This evidence 
     will be invaluable in any trials of Khmer Rouge leaders. The 
     managers direct AID to provide adequate funding so the 
     Documentation Center can continue its work.
       The managers direct that in addition to funds otherwise 
     requested or made available for Yemen, up to $4,000,000 shall 
     be dedicated to counter-terrorism training and 
     investigations. The managers also direct that these funds not 
     be made available until the Director of the Federal Bureau of 
     Investigation certifies to the Committees on Appropriations 
     that the Government of Yemen is fully cooperating with United 
     States officials in the investigation of the bombing of the 
     U.S.S. Cole.
       The managers also reiterate support for conflict resolution 
     programs as described in the House and Senate reports, 
     including funding for Seeds of Peace.

                     International Fund for Ireland

       The conference agreement appropriates $25,000,000 as 
     proposed by the House. The Senate amendment contained no 
     provision on this matter.
       The managers endorse the House and Senate report language 
     in urging the application of equal opportunity principles 
     through the International Fund for Ireland. The managers also 
     endorse the Senate report language on the Northern Ireland 
     Voluntary Trust, and the House report language on Project 
     Children.

          Assistance for Eastern Europe and the Baltic States

       The conference agreement appropriates $600,000,000 instead 
     of $535,000,000 as proposed by the House and $635,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate.
       The conference agreement does not include minimum funding 
     levels for Croatia and Montenegro as proposed by the Senate. 
     However, the managers strongly support assistance for both 
     countries. From funds appropriated under this heading both in 
     this title and in title VI, as well as from funds made 
     available in Public Law 106-52, the managers expect that not 
     less $65,725,000 will be made available for Croatia and not 
     less than $89,000,000 will be made available for Montenegro.
       The managers strongly support the announced intention of 
     the Government of Croatia to fulfill several commitments, 
     including cooperation with the International Criminal 
     Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia; an end to financial, 
     political, security, and other support to Herceg Bosna; 
     establishment of a swift timetable and cooperation in support 
     of the safe return of refugees; and the acceleration of 
     political, media, electoral, and anti-corruption reforms. The 
     managers direct that the Secretary of State report to the 
     Committees on Appropriations on the implementation of these 
     goals prior to the obligation of funds for Croatia.
       The conference agreement contains language similar to that 
     in the House bill that provides not less than $5,000,000 for 
     the Baltic States. In addition, it contains language similar 
     to that in the Senate amendment that imposes a ceiling of 
     $80,000,000 on assistance to Bosnia and Herzegovina from 
     funds appropriated under this heading and under the headings 
     ``Economic Support Fund'' and ``International Narcotics 
     Control and Law Enforcement''. The House bill did not address 
     this matter.
       The conference agreement contains language similar to that 
     in the House bill that prohibits funds for Kosova from this 
     account and from ``Economic Support Fund'' and 
     ``International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement'' to 
     exceed 15 percent of the total resources pledged by all 
     donors for calendar year 2001 for assistance for Kosova as of 
     March 31, 2001. The Senate amendment would have prohibited 
     funds for Kosova until the Secretary of State certified that 
     the resources obligated and expended by the United States in 
     Kosova did not exceed 15 percent of the total resources 
     obligated and expended by all donors. The conference 
     agreement does not contain House language that would also 
     have limited funding for Kosova to $150,000,000.
       The conference agreement does not contain language from the 
     Senate amendment that would have required that not less than 
     50 percent of the funds made available for Kosova be made 
     available through non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The 
     House bill did not address this matter. The managers direct 
     that the Agency for International Development submit 
     quarterly reports to the Committees on Appropriations 
     regarding the organizations, activities and levels of support 
     provided through local NGOs.
       The conference agreement includes language providing that 
     $1,300,000 should be made available to support the National 
     Albanian American Council's training program for Kosovar 
     women. The Senate amendment would have mandated such support. 
     The House bill did not address this matter.
       The conference agreement does not contain Senate language 
     regarding $250,000 for assistance to law enforcement 
     officials in Kosova

[[Page H10782]]

     to better identify and respond to cases of trafficking in 
     persons or $750,000 for a joint project developed by the 
     University of Pristina and Dartmouth Medical School to help 
     restore and improve educational programs at the University of 
     Pristina Medical School. However, the managers support 
     funding for these items, as well as for a proposal by Florida 
     State University for $2,000,000 to fund a distance learning 
     program of instruction in basic legal principles for students 
     and professionals in Eastern Europe, and urge the Agency for 
     International Development to favorably consider these 
     proposals. In addition, the managers reiterate support for 
     the Orava Project of the University of Northern Iowa as 
     expressed in the House and Senate reports.
       The managers note the crucial importance of a democratic, 
     multi-ethnic Macedonia to stability in the Balkans, as well 
     as the contributions made by that nation during the Kosova 
     air campaign. In view of these factors the managers strongly 
     support adequate resources for assistance for Macedonia for 
     fiscal year 2001.
       The managers note with great concern the delay in the 
     implementation of critical nuclear safety upgrades at the 
     Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant in Bulgaria. The managers are 
     further concerned that commercial disputes regarding the 
     project may negatively affect U.S.-Bulgarian commercial 
     relations. Therefore, the Secretary of State is urged to 
     communicate to the Government of Bulgaria the need to 
     expeditiously begin work on this project.
       The conference agreement includes language similar to that 
     in the House bill that authorizes the use of local currencies 
     generated by the assistance program in Bosnia for use in 
     Eastern Europe consistent with the provisions of the Support 
     for East European Democracy (SEED) Act of 1989 and the 
     Foreign Assistance Act of 1961. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter. The managers expect the Agency for 
     International Development to consult with the Committees on 
     Appropriations on the proposed uses of these funds, and to 
     submit a financial plan to the Committees following such 
     consultations.
       The conference agreement contains House language regarding 
     Presidential authority to withhold funds for Bosnia if the 
     Bosnian Federation is not complying with the requirements of 
     the Dayton Peace Accord regarding the removal of foreign 
     troops, and has not terminated intelligence cooperation with 
     Iranian officials. The Senate amendment contained similar 
     language.
       The managers request the President to determine whether it 
     would be appropriate to expunge by executive order certain 
     references in the 1965 report of the Commission on Law 
     Enforcement and Administration of Justice, entitled ``The 
     Challenge of Crime in a Free Society,'' to Italian nationals.

    Assistance for the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union

       The conference agreement appropriates $810,000,000, instead 
     of $740,000,000 as proposed by the House and $775,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate. The managers have included a ceiling 
     of 8 percent on management costs instead of 7 percent as 
     proposed by the Senate for nuclear safety activities. 
     Further, the conference agreement places a limitation of 25 
     percent on the percentage of funds that may be allocated for 
     any single country as proposed by the House.
       The conference agreement includes not less than 
     $45,000,000, as proposed by the House, only for child 
     survival, environmental and other health activities; programs 
     to reduce the incidence of infectious diseases; and related 
     activities. When AID is allocating funds to combat HIV/AIDS 
     and tuberculosis in the Europe and Eurasia region, the 
     managers direct that funds from regional accounts and the 
     Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund are to be provided 
     in approximately equal amounts.
       The conference agreement also directs the Coordinator of 
     Assistance to the Independent States to obligate not less 
     than $1,500,000, primarily through locally-based and 
     indigenous private voluntary organizations, to reduce 
     trafficking in women and children. The managers urge the 
     Coordinator to augment anti-trafficking projects by 
     continuing and strengthening law enforcement and other 
     activities to reduce all forms of violence against women. As 
     proposed by the Senate, the conference agreement mandates the 
     obligation of not less than $10,000,000, from this and the 
     migration and refugee account, only for nongovernmental 
     organizations providing humanitarian relief in Chechnya and 
     Ingushetia.
       The managers strongly support regional cooperation efforts 
     among the countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia. To 
     further regional cooperation, the conference agreement 
     continues the current six exemptions from the statutory 
     restrictions on assistance to the Government of Azerbaijan. 
     The managers include a provision that of the funds available 
     for the Southern Caucasus region 15 percent, as proposed by 
     the House, may be used for confidence-building measures and 
     other activities related to the resolution of regional 
     conflicts, notwithstanding any other provision of law, as 
     proposed by the Senate.
       In support of regional reconciliation in the Caucasus, the 
     managers believe that bringing together political leaders, 
     academics and other individuals from Georgia, Armenia and 
     Azerbaijan to discuss economic and cultural development, 
     democracy building, and the needs of victims of conflict 
     would be a vital step. Therefore, the managers direct that 
     $900,000 be made available, from funds for the Southern 
     Caucasus region for confidence-building measures for such 
     initiatives, specifically, the International Peace Forum, to 
     be held in Tbilisi, Georgia, in Spring 2001.
       The conference agreement reserves not less than $92,000,000 
     of the funds in this account for Georgia only and not less 
     than $90,000,000 for Armenia only, instead of $94,000,000 and 
     $89,000,000, respectively, as proposed by the Senate, and 
     12.5 percent for each as proposed by the House. The managers 
     direct the Coordinator and AID to allocate not less than 
     $25,000,000 of the funds made available for Georgia for 
     security assistance for border and export control only and up 
     to $5,000,000 for the training of municipal and regional 
     officials in management of water resource, transportation, 
     and other sectors operated or regulated by local governments 
     in Georgia. The managers support and urge AID to favorably 
     consider proposals by Fort Valley State University and the 
     University of Louisville to participate in any absorptive 
     capacity fund that may be established in the Republic of 
     Georgia.
       The managers are aware that Armenia may be selected as the 
     host site for Synchrotron Light Source Particle Accelerator 
     project known as SESAME. The managers understand that the 
     project will be used to advance regional interests in 
     medicine, geology, industry, and electronics. In the event 
     that the project is located in Armenia, the managers intend 
     that $15,000,000 of the funds made available for Armenia 
     should support this or a comparable project.
       The managers include bill language directing that 
     $170,000,000 should be made available for Ukraine instead of 
     $175,000,000 as proposed by the Senate. Of the amount for 
     Ukraine, not less than $25,000,000 shall be provided for 
     nuclear reactor safety programs. The managers have also 
     included bill language directing that $5,000,000 should be 
     provided for the Ukrainian Land and Resource Management 
     Center.
       The conference agreement includes not less than $1,000,000 
     to increase analytical capacity in Ukraine in the area of 
     healthcare and environmental health epidemiology, 
     particularly concerning children with special needs and birth 
     defects. This directive is based on the Senate amendment 
     mandating funds to complete the ongoing study of the 
     environmental causes of birth defects in Ukraine that is 
     managed by the University of South Alabama. The conference 
     agreement also includes not less than $3,250,000 for two 
     regional initiatives, industrial sector management study 
     tours conducted by Ohio's Center for Economic Initiatives and 
     community telecommunications activities managed by the 
     National Telephone Cooperative Association.
       The conference agreement includes conditions on assistance 
     to the Government of the Russian Federation, with exceptions 
     for specified humanitarian and security programs, with 
     respect to its adherence in the Northern Caucasus to certain 
     conventional arms and human rights conventions and 
     agreements, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.
       The conference agreement provides that 60 percent of 
     assistance to the Government of the Russian Federation would 
     be withheld if the President is unable to certify to Congress 
     that the Russian Government has terminated its ongoing 
     cooperation with the Government or Iran with regard to 
     certain nuclear and missile technology matters, and, with 
     regard to Chechnya, is cooperating with international efforts 
     to investigate allegations of war crimes and is in compliance 
     with article V of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in 
     Europe.
       The managers reiterate language from the fiscal year 2000 
     Statement of the Managers with regard to other limitations on 
     assistance, ``that assistance to combat infectious diseases, 
     * * * support for regional and municipal governments, and 
     partnerships between United States hospitals, universities, 
     judicial training institutions and environmental 
     organizations and counterparts in Russia should not be 
     affected by this section.''
       The conference agreement includes language providing not 
     less than $20,000,00 for the Russian Far East. This matter 
     was not addressed in the House bill. The managers recognize 
     the successful entrepreneurship, management and 
     democratization programs carried out during the past seven 
     years in the Russian Far East by the University of Alaska's 
     American-Russian Center. In addition to supporting continued 
     University of Alaska programs in the Russian Far East, the 
     managers direct that $3,000,000 be made available for a 
     proposal by the University of Alaska to extend these efforts 
     to Chukotka. In collaboration with Alaska Pacific University 
     and two Alaska Native regional governments (the North Slope 
     Borough and the Northwest Arctic Borough), the University of 
     Alaska will provide training and technical assistance to 
     strengthen Chukotka's economy, develop market driven systems, 
     and improve social conditions, particularly for the 
     indigenous peoples.
       The managers commend three programs in Russia that merit 
     support from the ``Assistance for the Independent States of 
     the Former Soviet Union'' account. The Replication of Lessons 
     Learned (ROLL) program provides ongoing American support to 
     help local Russian private volunteer organizations increase 
     their management capacity to help solve pollution and related 
     health problems, protect natural resources, and support

[[Page H10783]]

     economic growth. The managers urge that the ROLL and similar 
     small grants programs that support women, children, and 
     religious freedom be increased by at least 10 percent over 
     current levels.
       In addition, the managers direct that not less than 
     $250,000 should be provided to the Moscow School of Political 
     Studies to support its successful efforts to teach democratic 
     and free market principles to the emerging generation of 
     Russia's political leaders and $400,000 be made available for 
     the Cochran Fellowship Program to acquaint Russian farmers 
     with American agricultural practices and to enhance U.S.-
     Russian trade and business relations. The Moscow School of 
     Political Studies is making a concerted effort to teach 
     democratic and free market principles to the emerging 
     generation in Russia. It does this by conducting numerous 
     seminars to expose young political leaders--of all parties, 
     at both the federal and regional levels--to Western classical 
     political and economic thought.
       The conference agreement also includes funds to support 
     expansion of the Primary Healthcare Initiative in Ukraine, 
     Georgia, and Russia of the World Council of Hellenes, and the 
     United States-Russia Investment Fund, consistent with the 
     funding levels specified in the House report. The managers 
     commend the Fund for its promotion and development of a 
     market economy in Russia and urge the State Department and 
     AID allocate the maximum level practicable to the Fund in 
     fiscal year 2001. The managers also support House language 
     recommending the creation of a collaborative research program 
     on issues of arms control verification for Russian and 
     American scholars under the Expanded Threat Reduction 
     Program. The managers also support and urge AID to favorably 
     consider proposals to expand two existing programs: the 
     Silk Road Seed Multiplication Program, based on the 
     success of a similar program in Armenia; and the 
     University of Arkansas Medical School-Volgograd 
     Partnership program.
       The conference agreement does not reserve $6,000,000 from 
     this account only for Mongolia, as proposed by the Senate. 
     Language in the statement of the managers under the heading 
     ``Economic Support Fund'' addresses this matter.

                           Independent Agency

                              Peace Corps

       The conference agreement appropriates $265,000,000 instead 
     of $258,000,000 as proposed by the House and $244,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate.

                          Department of State


          International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement

       The conference agreement appropriates $325,000,000 for 
     International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement instead 
     of $305,000,000 as proposed by the House and $220,000,000 
     proposed by the Senate.
       The conference agreement requires that all anti-crime 
     programs be subject to the regular notification procedures of 
     the Committees on Appropriations, as proposed by the House. 
     The Senate did not address this matter.
       The conference agreement contains House language allowing 
     the Department of State to utilize section 608 of the Foreign 
     Assistance Act to receive excess property from other U.S. 
     federal agencies for use in a foreign country. The Senate 
     amendment did not address this matter.
       The managers endorse House report language regarding, and 
     direct the State Department to favorably consider, Notre Dame 
     University's program of human rights, democracy, and conflict 
     resolution training in Colombia.
       The managers direct the Secretary of State to engage the 
     government of Panama in good faith negotiations for the 
     conclusion of an agreement which provides the U.S. military a 
     forward operating location to support the use funds of under 
     this heading.


                    Migration and Refugee Assistance

       The conference agreement appropriates $700,000,000, instead 
     of $645,000,000 as proposed by the House and $615,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement makes 
     available $14,500,000, for administrative expenses, instead 
     of $14,000,000 as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House 
     proposed $14,852,000 for administrative expenses.
       The conference agreement also includes Senate language, not 
     included in the House bill, that provides not less than 
     $60,000,000 for refugees from the former Soviet Union and 
     Eastern Europe and other refugees resettling in Israel.
       The conference agreement provides that funds appropriated 
     under this heading to support activities and programs 
     conducted by the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees 
     shall be made available after reporting at least 5 days in 
     advance to the Committees on Appropriations. This reporting 
     requirement may be waived for any obligation if failure to do 
     so would pose a substantial risk to human health or welfare. 
     In the event that the waiver is exercised, a report to the 
     Committees on Appropriations shall be provided as early as 
     practicable, but in no event later than 5 days after such 
     obligation.
       The managers support the efforts of the Department of State 
     to remove anti-Semitic content in textbooks and curricula 
     used in schools administered by the United Nations Relief and 
     Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). 
     The managers are concerned by reports that anti-Semitic, 
     anti-Israel rhetoric has been included in new Palestinian 
     school textbooks. Accordingly, the managers direct the 
     Secretary of State to report in writing to the Committees on 
     Appropriations not later than February 1, 2001, on any such 
     anti-Semitic, anti-Israel content in the new textbooks and on 
     initiatives to redress such content in UNRWA schools.


     United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $15,000,000, as 
     proposed by the Senate amendment. The House bill proposed 
     $12,500,000.


    Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining and Related Programs

       The conference agreement appropriates $311,600,000 instead 
     of $241,600,000 as proposed by the House and $215,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate.
       The managers intend that funds in this account be allocated 
     as follows:

                       [In thousands of dollars)

Nonproliferation and Disarmament Fund...........................$15,000
Export control assistance........................................19,100
International Atomic Energy Agency...............................47,000
CTBT Preparatory Commission......................................21,500
Korean Peninsula Economic Development Organization (KEDO)........55,000
Anti-terrorism assistance........................................38,000
Terrorist Interdiction Program....................................4,000
Demining.........................................................40,000
Small arms destruction............................................2,000
Science Centers..................................................35,000
Lockerbie trial costs............................................15,000
Nonproliferation contingency.....................................20,000
    Total.......................................................311,600

       The conference agreement does not provide funds for a 
     proposed Center for Antiterrorism and Security Training 
     (CAST), both due to budget constraints and due to the fact 
     that funding for domestic law enforcement training is not 
     under the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Foreign 
     Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs. Although 
     the proposal for CAST includes training for foreign law 
     enforcement purposes, the managers believe that these needs 
     can be met by training at existing facilities and encourage 
     the Department of State to coordinate with the Federal Law 
     Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) and the Department of 
     Justice. To the extent that other Federal entities were 
     seeking to participate in the proposed training facility, 
     such needs should be pursued through the proper subcommittees 
     of jurisdiction.
       The managers intend that $5,000,000 of the funds allocated 
     for export control assistance be made available for equipment 
     for Malta to enable that country to monitor shipments 
     transiting the Malta Freeport. This equipment will assist the 
     Government of Malta in its efforts to prevent the 
     transshipment of narcotics, weapons of mass destruction, and 
     other illegal material through the Freeport. As evidence in 
     the Lockerbie trial has illustrated, preventing such 
     shipments is in the direct national security interest of the 
     United States.
       In addition, the managers strongly support the allocation 
     of up to $8,000,000 for export control activities along 
     Jordan's borders with Iraq and Syria, including the 
     procurement of mobile vans and trucks that are capable of 
     monitoring shipments of goods into Jordan.
       The conference agreement includes House language that 
     authorizes a contribution to the Comprehensive Nuclear Test 
     Ban Treaty (CTBT) Preparatory Commission, and requires that 
     the Secretary of State inform the Committees on 
     Appropriations at least 20 days prior to the obligation of 
     funds for such Commission. The conference agreement does not 
     include Senate language on this matter. However, the managers 
     endorse the Senate report language directing that a report be 
     provided to the Committees on Appropriations on the 
     anticipated use of funds made available to the Commission, 
     including an identification of all donors and any directives 
     or restrictions associated with their contribution; a 
     detailed explanation of expenditures in 2000 and 2001, 
     including sites where the United States has provided 
     assistance to third party nations; and a copy of the 
     Commission's 2001 budget.
       The conference agreement includes Senate language 
     authorizing the use of funds for the destruction of small 
     arms, and providing that $40,000,000 should be used for 
     demining activities including not to exceed $500,000 for 
     administrative expenses. The House bill did not address these 
     matters.

                       Department of the Treasury


               International Affairs Technical Assistance

       The conference agreement includes $6,000,000 for the 
     International Affairs Technical Assistance program of the 
     Department of the Treasury instead of $5,000,000 as proposed 
     by the Senate and $2,000,000 as proposed by the House.


                           Debt Restructuring

       The conference agreement appropriates $238,000,000 for debt 
     restructuring as proposed by the House instead of $75,000,000 
     as proposed by the Senate. The managers include not less than 
     $13,000,000 only for implementation of title V of the Foreign 
     Assistance Act. The remainder of the amount provided for debt 
     restructuring may be used at the Administration's discretion, 
     subject to certain

[[Page H10784]]

     reporting and notification requirements, either for bilateral 
     debt restructuring or for United States contributions to the 
     Heavily Indebted Poor Country (HIPC) Trust Fund administered 
     by the World Bank.
       The conference agreement includes language that countries 
     benefiting from U.S. contributions to the HIPC Trust Fund 
     agree not to accept additional market-rate loans during a 
     ``time out on new debt'' moratorium. The moratorium for 24 
     months, instead of 30 months as proposed by the House, would 
     apply only to new lending from MDBs whose bad loans to the 
     beneficiary poor country are being paid off by the HIPC Trust 
     Fund.
       The managers have not included a House provision that would 
     have established a similar moratorium for 9 months with 
     regard to concessional or ``soft'' loans. The managers have 
     included bill language requiring that the Secretary of the 
     Treasury include a listing of all concessional loans that are 
     under consideration by multilateral development banks for 
     each HIPC beneficiary country. The extent and amount of 
     proposed new debt will be a factor as the Committees consult 
     with Treasury regarding the specific use of funds provided 
     for forgiveness of old debt. The managers agree with the 
     policy with regard to HIPC, issued by the Development 
     Committee of the IMF and World Bank at recent meetings in 
     Prague, that: ``further restraint on concessional lending may 
     also be warranted, including through greater recourse to 
     grant financing.'' The matter of new concessional lending to 
     HIPC beneficiaries is addressed in bill language under the 
     heading ``Contribution to the International Development 
     Association (IDA)''.
       The conferees encourage all bilateral creditors to provide 
     debt reduction to heavily indebted poor countries and that 
     special consideration be given to the unique circumstances of 
     selected bilateral creditors such as Costa Rica.
       The managers have also included language proposed by the 
     House that prohibits U.S. payments to the HIPC Trust Fund for 
     certain countries.
       The limitation affects any country credibly reported to be 
     engaged in a pattern of gross violations of internationally 
     recognized human rights or to be engaged in a war or civil 
     conflict that undermines its ability to comply with HIPC 
     conditions. The Senate amendment did not address these 
     matters.
       The conferees have included a provision that requires the 
     Secretary of the Treasury to consult with the Committees on 
     Appropriations concerning which countries and international 
     financial institutions are expected to benefit from a United 
     States contribution to the HIPC Trust Fund administered by 
     the World Bank during the fiscal year, and to inform the 
     Committees not less than fifteen days in advance of the 
     signature of an agreement by the United States to make 
     payments to the HIPC Trust Fund of amounts for such countries 
     and institutions. It is the understanding of the conferees 
     that the Secretary of the Treasury will update the list of 
     countries and institutions if new countries or institutions 
     are expected to benefit from U.S. contributions to the HIPC 
     Trust Fund during the fiscal year, and that such updating 
     will be provided in advance of informing the Committees of 
     the proposed signature of an agreement to make payments to 
     the HIPC Trust Fund with respect to any such new country or 
     institution.
       The conference agreement further requires full 
     documentation of any commitment by a HIPC beneficiary country 
     regarding redirection of domestic resources to additional 
     poverty alleviation and economic growth measures, as proposed 
     by the House. The Committees will closely monitor the 
     implementation of such commitments, taking into account the 
     findings of the Department of the Treasury, religious groups 
     that have advocated the HIPC initiative and knowledgeable 
     non-governmental organizations.

                     TITLE III--MILITARY ASSISTANCE

             International Military Education and Training

       The conference agreement appropriates $55,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate instead of $47,250,000 as proposed by 
     the House. The conference agreement also contains House 
     language not in the Senate amendment that provides that up to 
     $1,000,000 may be available until expended.
       The conference agreement includes House language that 
     provides that Expanded International Military Education and 
     Training (E-IMET) for Indonesia is subject to notification, 
     and Senate language that provides that Expanded IMET for 
     Guatemala is subject to notification.
       The conference agreement does not include House language 
     that conditioned funding for the School of the Americas upon 
     certifications by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary 
     of State, or that imposed certain reporting requirements. The 
     Senate amendment did not address these matters. The managers 
     note that the relevant authorizing committees are addressing 
     the future status of the School of the Americas as part of 
     H.R. 4205, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
     Year 2001.
       As part of the increase in funding for this account, the 
     managers would support increasing the allocation for Malta 
     from $100,000 to $200,000 for fiscal year 2001 in order to 
     support that country's needs for the professional training of 
     its armed forces.
       The managers support and urge the Departments of State and 
     Defense to favorably consider $150,000 from this account for 
     development for a peacekeeping initiative at the Naval 
     Postgraduate School. This education program would focus on 
     the creation of a security environment within which economic 
     and political development can accelerate, thereby 
     facilitating the withdrawal of United States and/or other 
     peacekeeping forces. The program would eventually provide 
     foreign civilians and military personnel with the specialized 
     expertise, problem-solving skills and management tools to 
     conduct peacekeeping operations that have an exit strategy.

                   Foreign Military Financing Program

       The conference agreement appropriates $3,545,000,000 
     instead of $3,519,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and 
     $3,268,000,000 as proposed by the House.
       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     provides not less than $1,980,000,000 for grants for Israel 
     and not less than $1,300,000,000 for grants for Egypt, 
     instead of not to exceed those sums as proposed by the House. 
     The conference agreement also includes language that provides 
     that not less than $520,000,000 shall be available for 
     procurement in Israel of defense goods and services. The 
     House and Senate had similar language on this matter, but the 
     House bill would not have mandated this level.
       The conference agreement deletes House language expressing 
     the Sense of Congress on the proposed Phalcon sale by Israel 
     to China. The managers commend the decision by the Government 
     of Israel to cancel the sale in view of the threat posed to 
     United States national security interests.
       The conference agreement includes language that provides 
     that not less than $75,000,000 should be made available for 
     assistance for Jordan. The Senate amendment would have 
     mandated this level of assistance. The House bill did not 
     address this matter.
       The conference agreement includes language similar to that 
     in the Senate amendment regarding an interest bearing account 
     for Egypt, except that the requirement for a notification is 
     replaced by language that requires that the Committees on 
     Appropriations be informed at least 10 days prior to the 
     obligation of funds earned on the interest from funds 
     deposited in said account. The House bill would have allowed 
     for the early disbursal of fiscal year 2001 outlays for 
     Egypt.
       The conference agreement includes not less than $8,500,000 
     for Tunisia, of which not less than $5,000,000 shall be from 
     drawdowns of defense articles, services, and education and 
     training. The Senate amendment provided $10,000,000 and 
     $4,000,000, respectively, for these activities. The House 
     bill did not address this matter.
       The conference agreement provides that not less than 
     $8,000,000 shall be provided for Georgia, of which not less 
     than $4,000,000 shall be from drawdowns of defense articles, 
     services, and education and training. The Senate amendment 
     mandated $12,000,000 and $5,000,000, respectively, for these 
     activities. The House bill did not address this matter. The 
     conference agreement also includes language that allocates 
     $3,000,000 in grant funds for Malta.
       The conference agreement does not include Senate language 
     that would have authorized the transfer by Turkey to Georgia 
     of not to exceed $10,000,000 in defense articles sold by the 
     United States to Turkey. The House bill did not address this 
     matter.
       The conference agreement provides for a limitation of 
     $33,000,000 for administrative expenses as proposed by the 
     Senate, rather than $30,495,000 as proposed by the House. It 
     also includes House language that provides that no 
     Partnership for Peace funds may be made available to a non-
     NATO country except through the regular notification 
     procedures of the Committees on Appropriations.

                        Peacekeeping Operations

       The conference agreement appropriates $127,000,000 instead 
     of $117,900,000 as proposed by the House and $85,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate.
       The managers urge the State Department to provide support 
     to the Special War Crimes Court for Sierra Leone, to bring to 
     justice those responsible for the mutilation and slaughter of 
     innocent people there.

               TITLE IV--MULTILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  International Financial Institutions


                   Global Environment Facility (GEF)

       The conference agreement appropriates $108,000,000 for the 
     Global Environment Facility instead of $50,000,000 as 
     proposed by the Senate and $35,800,000 as proposed by the 
     House.


       Contribution to the International Development Association

       The conference agreement appropriates $775,000,000 instead 
     of $750,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and $566,600,000 as 
     proposed by the House.
       The managers have agreed to language, similar to that 
     proposed by the House, regarding the provision of grant 
     assistance by the International Development Association to 
     HIPC beneficiaries. The managers endorse Senate report 
     language concerning the need for further reform of procedures 
     to address employee grievances at the World Bank, IMF, and 
     other financial institutions.


      Contribution to the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency

       The conference agreement appropriates $10,000,000 for paid-
     in capital issued by the Multilateral Investment Guarantee 
     Agency,

[[Page H10785]]

     instead of $4,000,000 as proposed by the Senate and 
     $4,900,000 as proposed by the House. Approval for 
     subscription to the appropriate amount of callable capital is 
     also included in the conference agreement.


       Contribution to the Inter-American Investment Corporation

       The conference agreement appropriates $25,000,000 for the 
     United States contribution to the Inter-American Investment 
     Corporation, instead of $10,000,000 as proposed by the Senate 
     and $8,000,000 as proposed by the House.


Contribution to the Enterprise for the Americas Multilateral Investment 
                                  Fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $10,000,000 for the 
     United States contribution to the Multilateral Investment 
     Fund (MIF) at the Inter-American Development Bank, as 
     proposed by the House. The Senate did not address this 
     matter.
       The MIF was intended to be a cutting-edge instrument for 
     expanding the private sector's contribution to growth in 
     Latin America. The managers request the Secretary of the 
     Treasury to prepare and submit to the Committees by April 6, 
     2001, an in-depth report on the MIF prepared by private 
     sector entrepreneurs from the U.S. and Latin America. The 
     report should evaluate the portfolio of the MIF with respect 
     to private sector growth, including, but not limited to, the 
     status of project execution and value added, and include 
     strategic recommendations for achieving greater impact and 
     expediting project selection and approval.


               Contribution to the Asian Development Fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $72,000,000 for the 
     Asian Development Fund, as proposed by the House, instead of 
     $100,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.


              Contribution to the African Development Bank

       The conference agreement appropriates $6,100,000 for paid-
     in capital issued by the African Development Bank as proposed 
     by the Senate, instead of $3,100,000 as proposed by the 
     House. Approval for subscription to the appropriate amount of 
     callable capital is also included in the conference 
     agreement.


              Contribution to the African Development Fund

       The conference agreement appropriates $100,000,000 for the 
     African Development Fund instead of $72,000,000, as proposed 
     by the House and the Senate.


  Contribution to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development

       The conference agreement appropriates $35,778,717 for the 
     European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, as proposed 
     by the House, instead of $35,779,000, as proposed by the 
     Senate. Approval for subscription to the appropriate amount 
     of callable capital is also included in the conference 
     agreement.


            International Fund for Agricultural Development

       The conference agreement appropriates $5,000,000 for the 
     International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), as 
     proposed by the House. The Senate included a total of 
     $5,000,000 for IFAD within the ``International Organizations 
     and Programs'' and ``Development Assistance'' accounts.


                International Organizations and Programs

       The conference agreement provides $186,000,000, instead of 
     $183,000,000 as proposed by the House and $288,000,000 as 
     proposed by Senate. The final appropriation level does not 
     include $110,000,000 provided for UNICEF, and up to 
     $50,000,000 for the Global Alliance for Vaccines and 
     Immunization (GAVI), which are included under the ``Child 
     Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' account and $2,500,000 
     for IFAD, which is included under the prior heading.
       The conference agreement continues current law indicating 
     that $5,000,000 should be made available for the World Food 
     Program, as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment 
     included similar language.
       The managers support $5,000,000 from this account for the 
     United States contribution to the United Nations Voluntary 
     Fund for Victims of Torture Program, as recommended in the 
     Senate Report, and $90,000,000 for the United Nations 
     Development Program, as recommended in the House Report.

                      TITLE V--GENERAL PROVISIONS

       (Note--If House and Senate language is identical except for 
     a different section number or minor technical differences, 
     the section is not discussed in the Statement of Managers.)
     Sec. 505. Limitation on Representational Allowances
       This section retains reference to the Inter-American 
     Foundation as proposed by the House and as contained in 
     current law. The Senate amendment proposed deleting this 
     reference.
     Sec. 508. Military Coups
       The conference agreement includes House language that 
     specifies that funds shall be prohibited for any country 
     whose duly elected head of government is deposed by decree or 
     military coup. The Senate amendment included similar 
     language.
     Sec. 510. Deobligation/Reobligation Authority
       The conference agreement deletes Senate language that would 
     have authorized deobligation/reobligation authority for funds 
     that are certified pursuant to section 1311 of the 
     Supplemental Appropriations Act, 1955.
     Sec. 511. Availability of Funds
       The conference agreement deletes House language that 
     provided that the final proviso under title VI of the fiscal 
     year 2000 appropriations Act for foreign operations, export 
     financing, and related programs shall be null and void. 
     Similar language is already contained in Public Law 106-52.
     Sec. 512. Limitation on Assistance to Countries in Default
       The conference agreement is the same as current law, as 
     proposed by the House. The Senate proposed to restrict the 
     limitation to a defaulting government instead of a defaulting 
     country.
     Sec. 515. Notification Requirements
       The conference agreement is the same as current law. The 
     Senate proposed a technical change.
     Sec. 517. Independent States of the Former Soviet Union
       The conference agreement is the same as current law, except 
     that the special notification requirement applies to Russia, 
     Ukraine, Armenia, and Georgia only. The House bill deleted a 
     current provision relating to territorial integrity and 
     required special notification for Russia and Ukraine only. 
     The Senate amendment was essentially the same as current law.
     Sec. 520. Special Notification Requirements
       The conference agreement adds ``Ethiopia'', ``Eritrea'', 
     and ``Zimbabwe'' as proposed by the House bill and retains 
     ``Pakistan'' as proposed by the Senate amendment, to the list 
     of countries subject to the special notification procedures 
     of this section. The managers are encouraged that on June 8, 
     2000, a cease-fire agreement was signed by Ethiopia and 
     Eritrea and that efforts are underway to reach a permanent 
     settlement of the border conflict.
     Sec. 522. Child Survival and Disease Prevention Activities
       The conference agreement authorizes AID to use $16,000,000 
     from the ``Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund'' for 
     technical experts from other government agencies, 
     universities, and other institutions. The Senate proposed 
     $10,000,000 and the House $10,500,000 for this purpose. The 
     managers have increased this authority on an interim basis in 
     order to accelerate implementation of the expanded HIV/AIDS 
     and tuberculosis activities. AID is directed to replace the 
     additional temporary personnel as rapidly as possible with 
     AID direct hire OE-funded personnel. As the purpose of the 
     general provision is to support effective implementation 
     of the Child Survival and Disease Programs Fund, the 
     conference agreement does not include a reference to 
     family planning, as proposed by the Senate.
     Sec. 525. Authorization Requirement
       The conference agreement includes language that provides 
     that funds appropriated by this Act may be obligated and 
     expended notwithstanding section 10 of Public Law 91-672 and 
     section 15 of the State Department Basic Authorities Act of 
     1956, as provided in the House bill and the Senate amendment. 
     However, it includes new language exempting the accounts 
     ``International Military Education and Training'' and 
     ``Foreign Military Financing Program'' from these waivers. 
     Authorizations of appropriations for these accounts have been 
     enacted into law as part of Public Law 106-280.
     Sec. 526. Democracy in China
       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     authorizes the use of funds from the account ``Economic 
     Support Fund'' for the support of nongovernmental 
     organizations located outside of China to foster democracy 
     and rule of law. The House bill only authorized funds to 
     foster democracy.
       The conference agreement includes language that allows 
     funds from this Act or from prior acts making appropriations 
     for Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related 
     Programs, that are made available for the National Endowment 
     for Democracy (NED) to be made available notwithstanding any 
     other provision of law or regulation. The purpose of this 
     language is to allow for the expeditious and orderly 
     obligation of funds through the Endowment for support of 
     nongovernmental organizations overseas. This provision would 
     become effective upon enactment. The House bill and the 
     Senate amendment contained language that would have made 
     funds for NED available consistent with certain decisions of 
     the Comptroller General and in accordance with Office of 
     Management and Budget Circular A-122.
       The conference agreement includes language that authorizes, 
     notwithstanding any other provision of law, not to exceed 
     $2,000,000 from the Economic Support Fund to support certain 
     activities in Tibetan communities. The House bill contained 
     similar language; the Senate amendment did not address this 
     matter.
       The conference agreement also contains House language that 
     amends current law to make available $1,000,000 in previously 
     appropriated funds for the Jamestown Foundation for a project 
     to disseminate information and support research about the 
     People's Republic of China. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter.
     Sec. 528. Report on the Implementation of Supplemental 
         Appropriations
       The conference agreement includes House language that 
     requires four quarterly reports on the use of funds 
     appropriated under title VI of the fiscal year 2000 
     appropriations Act for foreign operations, export financing, 
     and

[[Page H10786]]

     related programs. The Senate amendment did not address this 
     matter.
     Sec. 530. Peru
       The conference agreement includes language requiring the 
     Secretary of State to determine and report to the Committees 
     on Appropriations regarding progress toward elections and 
     improvements in democracy and rule of law. The Senate 
     amendment contained a similar provision. The House bill did 
     not address this matter. The managers direct the Secretary of 
     State to submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations 
     not later than 30 days after the date of enactment of this 
     Act, evaluating United States, political, economic, and 
     military relations with Peru in accordance with P.L. 106-186.
     Sec. 535. Authorities for the Peace Corps, International Fund 
         for Agricultural Development, Inter-American Foundation, 
         and African Development Foundation
       The conference agreement maintains current law as proposed 
     by the House. The Senate amendment proposed deleting the 
     reference to the Inter-American Foundation.
     Sec. 537. Clean Coal Technology
       The conference agreement includes Senate language 
     encouraging the use of clean coal technology in environmental 
     and energy infrastructure programs, projects and activities. 
     In addition, the managers encourage the Secretary of the 
     Treasury, Secretary of State, Secretary of Energy and 
     Administrator of the Agency for International Development to 
     promote the use of other clean and renewable energy 
     technologies. The House bill did not address this matter.
     Sec. 538. Special Authorities
       The conference agreement deletes prior year language 
     proposed by the Senate that exempts humanitarian assistance 
     for Romania and the peoples of Kosova from any other 
     provision of law. This language is no longer necessary. The 
     conference agreement also includes House language that adds 
     ``Economic Support Fund'' to the list of accounts under which 
     certain activities may be undertaken notwithstanding any 
     other provision of law.
       The managers have expanded authority in current law 
     regarding AID's use of personal services contractors in 
     Washington so that additional bureaus and offices within AID 
     may utilize, on a temporary basis, such contractors. This 
     authority is intended to allow AID to meet relatively short-
     term requirements for technical and management personnel in 
     limited situations where natural disasters, recent foreign 
     policy decisions, or other unforeseen events result in rapid 
     increases in assistance levels and where other options, such 
     as the use of existing staff or hiring and training of new 
     staff, cannot be implemented quickly or effectively to meet 
     the unforeseen management needs. Other than under exceptional 
     circumstances, this authority should not be used to satisfy 
     requirements with durations greater than two years. The 
     Bureau of Management is directed to report to the Committees 
     not later than December 15, 2000, and March 15, 2001, on the 
     use of personal service contractors under this and other 
     authorities.
     Sec. 539. Policy on Terminating the Arab League Boycott of 
         Israel and Normalizing Relations with Israel
       The conference agreement includes House language on this 
     matter. The Senate amendment did not include subsections (2) 
     and (3) of the House general provision, dealing with the 
     decision by the Arab League to reinstate the boycott of 
     Israel in 1997, and calling on the League to immediately 
     rescind its decision; and deleted language from subsection 
     (4)(C) regarding a report on the specific steps that should 
     be taken by the President to ``expand the process of 
     normalizing ties between Arab League countries and Israel''.
     Sec. 540. Administration of Justice Activities
       The conference agreement contains language identical to 
     current law, but changes the name of this section, as 
     proposed by the House bill. The Senate amendment proposed 
     repeal of parts of section 534 of the Foreign Assistance Act.
     Sec. 541. Eligibility for Assistance
       The conference agreement includes language regarding 
     eligibility of assistance provided under this Act as proposed 
     by the House bill. The conference agreement does not include 
     a modification, as proposed in the Senate amendment, 
     regarding the prohibition on assistance to countries that 
     violate internationally recognized human rights.
     Sec. 543. Ceilings and Earmarks
       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     restores prior year language regarding earmarks and minimum 
     funding levels. The House bill did not address this matter.
     Sec. 552. War Crimes Tribunals Drawdown
       The conference agreement includes language proposed by the 
     Senate that provides a sunset date of September 30, 2001, for 
     certain reports required of the Secretary of State under this 
     section.
     Sec. 555. Prohibitions on Payment of Certain Expenses
       The conference agreement includes language identical to 
     current law, as proposed by the House. The Senate amendment 
     deleted references to the ``Child Survival and Disease 
     Programs Fund''.
     Sec. 558. Assistance for Haiti
       The conference agreement includes language similar to that 
     proposed by the House which prohibits additional assistance 
     to the central government of Haiti until the Committees on 
     Appropriations are in receipt of reports regarding free and 
     fair elections and regarding Haitian government cooperation 
     in illicit drug trafficking. The Senate amendment placed 
     conditions on aid to Haiti regarding free and fair elections, 
     but did not address illicit drug trafficking. The managers do 
     not intend that assistance to combat infectious diseases, 
     child survival, support for regional and municipal 
     governments, and partnerships between United States 
     hospitals, universities, non-governmental organizations and 
     counterparts in Haiti would be affected by this section.
     Sec. 559. Requirement for Disclosure of Foreign Aid in Report 
         of Secretary of State
       The conference agreement includes language proposed by the 
     Senate that makes a technical modification to current law.
     Sec. 561. Haiti Coast Guard
       The conference agreement includes language proposed in the 
     House bill regarding the purchase of defense goods and 
     articles by Haiti for its Coast Guard. The Senate amendment 
     proposed allowing the Haitian National Police to be eligible 
     to purchase these items.
     Sec. 564. Restrictions on Assistance to Countries Providing 
         Sanctuary to Indicted War Criminals
       The conference agreement includes Senate language that adds 
     assistance for refugees and internally displaced persons to 
     the exemptions to the sanctions of this section, and Senate 
     language regarding communities in which an indicted war 
     criminal is residing.
     Sec. 565. Discrimination Against Minority Religious Faiths in 
         the Russian Federation
       The conference agreement changes the title of this section, 
     as proposed in the Senate amendment. The House bill proposed 
     the title, ``To Prohibit Foreign Assistance to the Government 
     of the Russian Federation Should It Enact Laws Which Would 
     Discriminate Against Minority Religious Faiths in the Russian 
     Federation''.
     Sec. 568. Assistance for the Middle East
       The conference agreement contains language similar to the 
     House bill that imposes a spending ceiling of $5,241,150,000 
     on specified assistance for the Middle East. The Senate 
     amendment did not address this matter.
     Sec. 571. Foreign Military Training Report
       The conference agreement includes House language requiring 
     a joint report by the Secretary of State and the Secretary of 
     Defense on all overseas military training (excluding military 
     sales) provided to non-NATO foreign military personnel under 
     programs administered by the Departments of Defense and State 
     during 2000 and 2001, including those proposed for 2001. The 
     language specifies the scope of the report, and allows for a 
     classified annex, if deemed necessary and appropriate. The 
     report shall be due no later than March 1, 2001. The Senate 
     amendment did not address this matter.
     Sec. 572. Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization
       The conference agreement includes House language on this 
     matter, except that the ceiling on funding for the Korean 
     Peninsula Economic Development Organization (KEDO) is 
     $55,000,000 rather than $35,000,000 as in the House bill and 
     the Senate amendment. The House language conditions funding 
     for KEDO on a certification that (1) the parties to the 
     Agreed Framework have taken and continue to take demonstrable 
     steps to implement the Joint Declaration on Denuclearization 
     of Korea; (2) the parties have taken and continue to take 
     demonstrable steps to pursue the North-South dialogue; (3) 
     North Korea is complying with all provisions of the Agreed 
     Framework; (4) North Korea has not significantly diverted 
     assistance for purposes for which it was not intended; (5) 
     there is no credible evidence North Korea is seeking to 
     develop or acquire the capability to enrich uranium, or any 
     additional capability to reprocess spent nuclear fuel; (6) 
     North Korea is complying with its obligations regarding 
     access to suspect underground construction; (7) there is no 
     credible evidence North Korea is engaged in a nuclear weapons 
     program, including efforts to acquire, develop, test, 
     produce, or deploy such weapons, and (8) the United States is 
     continuing to make significant progress on eliminating the 
     North Korean ballistic missile threat, including further 
     missile tests and its ballistic missile exports.
       The language allows for the President to waive the 
     certification requirements of this section if he determines 
     that it is vital to the national security interests of the 
     United States, 30 days after a written submission to the 
     appropriate congressional committees. It also requires a 
     report from the Secretary of State on the fiscal year 2002 
     budget request for KEDO, with certain specified information 
     to be included in such report.
       The Senate amendment contained similar language.
     Sec. 573. African Development Foundation
       The conference agreement provides that funds to grantees of 
     the Foundation may be invested pending expenditure and that 
     interest earned must be used for the same purpose for which 
     the grant was made. Further, this section allows the 
     Foundation's board of directors, in exceptional 
     circumstances, to waive the existing $250,000 project 
     limitation, subject to reporting to the Committees on 
     Appropriations.
     Sec. 575. Iraq Opposition
       The conference agreement contains language similar to that 
     contained in title II of

[[Page H10787]]

     the Senate amendment specifying that not less than 
     $25,000,000 from the account ``Economic Support Fund'' shall 
     be made available for programs benefiting the Iraqi people, 
     including not less than $12,000,000 which should be provided 
     for certain specified humanitarian assistance, and not less 
     than $6,000,000 which should be provided to the Iraq National 
     Congress Support Foundation or the Iraqi National Congress 
     for radio and television broadcasting inside Iraq. It also 
     states that the President should submit a plan within 60 days 
     of enactment regarding the use of the funds recommended in 
     this section. The House bill did not address this matter.
       The managers strongly support assistance for Kurdish Human 
     Rights Watch for its programs to provide humanitarian 
     assistance to the Kurdish people in northern Iraq.
       The conference agreement also includes language similar to 
     that in the House bill that provides authority to use funds 
     to support efforts to bring about political transition in 
     Iraq, to be made available only to Iraqi opposition groups 
     designated under the Iraq Liberation Act, and not to exceed 
     $2,000,000 to be made available for groups and activities 
     seeking the prosecution of Saddam Hussein and other Iraqi 
     officials for war crimes. No funds may be made available for 
     administrative costs of the Department of State. The Senate 
     amendment did not address this matter.
     Sec. 576. Agency for International Development Budget 
         Justification
       The conference agreement instructs the Agency for 
     International Development to submit its 2002 budget in a 
     transparent and simplified format more useful to the 
     Committees, as proposed by the House. In particular, the 
     budget justification document should prominently display data 
     and narratives aggregating resources obligated or requested 
     for all Agency-managed programs and activities that are 
     traditionally of special interest to Congress and the 
     Executive branch. The Senate did not address this matter.
     Sec. 577. Kyoto Protocol
       The conference agreement prohibits funds in this Act to be 
     used to propose or issue rules, regulations, decrees, or 
     orders for the purpose of implementation, or preparation for 
     implementation of the Kyoto Protocol, as proposed by the 
     Senate.
     Sec. 579. Indonesia
       The conference agreement provision regarding military 
     assistance to Indonesia is similar to current law. The House 
     bill and the Senate amendment included identical conditions 
     under which a Presidential report and determination could 
     result in a resumption of military assistance to Indonesia 
     that is funded in this bill. The restrictions on assistance 
     include both IMET and Foreign Military Financing programs, 
     instead of FMF only, as proposed by the House bill.
       The managers are concerned about the more than 100,000 East 
     Timorese refugees still trapped in West Timor. This severe 
     humanitarian situation has been exacerbated by ongoing 
     harassment of aid workers by armed gangs, and recurring 
     border incursions into East Timor by West Timor-based 
     militias. These attacks have resulted in the deaths of 
     several UN aid workers, as well as refugees. The managers 
     strongly urge the Secretaries of Defense and State to press 
     the government of Indonesia to fulfill its commitments to 
     disarm and disband militia groups, end military and financial 
     support for these groups, and bring militia leaders to 
     justice. The managers note that, as provided in this section, 
     resumption of security assistance to Indonesia is 
     conditioned, in part, on the armed forces of Indonesia 
     providing safe passage to refugees returning from West Timor.
     Sec. 580. Man and the Biosphere
       The conference agreement prohibits funds for the United 
     Nations Man in the Biosphere Program and the World Heritage 
     Fund, as proposed by the House bill. The Senate did not 
     address this matter.
     Sec. 581. Taiwan Reporting Requirement
       The conference agreement includes language that requires 
     that not less than 30 days prior to the next round of arms 
     talks between the United States and Taiwan, the President 
     shall consult, on a classified basis, with appropriate 
     Congressional leaders and committee chairmen and ranking 
     members regarding the following matters: (1) Taiwan's 
     requests for purchase of defense articles and defense 
     services during the pending round of arms talks; (2) the 
     Administration's assessment of the legitimate defense needs 
     of Taiwan in light of those requests; and (3) the decision-
     making process used by the Executive Branch to consider those 
     requests. The House bill and the Senate amendment contained 
     language requiring the Secretary of State to consult with the 
     appropriate committees and leadership of Congress to devise a 
     mechanism to provide for Congressional input prior to making 
     any determination on the sale or transfer of defense articles 
     and services to Taiwan.
     Sec. 582. Restriction on United States Assistance for Certain 
         Reconstruction Efforts in Central Europe
       The conference agreement contains House language that 
     provides that to the maximum extent possible, assistance to 
     Eastern Europe and the Baltic States should be used for the 
     procurement of American goods and services. The Senate 
     amendment did not address this matter.
     Sec. 583. Restrictions on Assistance to Governments 
         Destabilizing Sierra Leone
       The conference agreement prohibits assistance to any 
     government for which the Secretary of State has credible 
     evidence that such government has, within the previous six 
     months, provided military support or which has assisted 
     illicit diamond trading which benefits the Revolutionary 
     United Front in Sierra Leone. This section is identical to 
     the House bill. The Senate amendment did not address this 
     matter.
     Sec. 584. Voluntary Separation Incentives
       The conference agreement provides for the payment of 
     voluntary separation incentives to AID employees for the 
     purpose of eliminating positions and functions at AID, as 
     proposed by the House bill and the Senate amendment.
     Sec. 585. Contributions to the United Nations Population Fund
       As proposed by the House bill, the conference agreement 
     provides that not more than $25,000,000 from the 
     ``International Organizations and Programs'' account shall be 
     made available for the United Nations Fund for Population 
     Activities. This assistance is subject to a number of 
     conditions regarding UNFPA activities. The Senate amendment 
     contained a similar provision.
     Sec. 586. Indochinese Parolees
       The conference agreement includes language similar to the 
     Senate amendment which provides authority for the Attorney 
     General to adjust the status of certain Indochinese parolees 
     to lawful permanent residence. The House bill did not address 
     this matter.
       The purpose of this provision is to address an anomaly in 
     current law, which requires that such persons have first been 
     denied refugee status in order to be eligible to adjust 
     status. Since these individuals were paroled into the United 
     States as part of U.S. government programs at a time when 
     their eligibility for refugee status was never considered, 
     the managers believe that this provision is both necessary 
     and appropriate. The provision is limited in scope to apply 
     only to parolees who are natives or citizens of Vietnam, Laos 
     or Cambodia, who were inspected and paroled into the United 
     States prior to October 1, 1997, and who are otherwise 
     eligible to receive an immigrant visa. The managers note that 
     the potential beneficiaries of this provision are a fixed 
     number of individuals who were lawfully admitted into the 
     United States. While the conference agreement includes a 
     ceiling on the number of aliens who may benefit from this 
     provision, the managers recognize that it is difficult to 
     determine precisely the number of potential beneficiaries and 
     that such number may need to be revised in the future to 
     ensure that no eligible alien is arbitrarily denied 
     adjustment of status.
     Sec. 587. American Churchwomen in El Salvador
       The conference agreement includes language regarding the 
     murder of four American churchwomen in El Salvador, as 
     proposed in the House bill. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter.
     Sec. 588. Procurement and Financial Management Reform
       The conference agreement includes a Senate provision 
     withholding 10 percent of the funds made available for 
     international financial institutions until the Secretary of 
     the Treasury certifies that a number of procurement and 
     financial management reforms are being implemented. The House 
     bill included a similar provision, adding a requirement 
     relating to funding of third-party procurement monitoring. 
     The conference agreement includes a provision that requires 
     that, prior to disbursement of the final 10 percent of the 
     United States portion or payment to an international 
     financial institution as defined in section 588, the 
     Secretary of the Treasury certify, inter alia, that the 
     institution is taking steps to establish an independent fraud 
     and corruption investigative organization or office or an 
     equivalent mechanism.
       The managers agree that, for purposes of this provision, an 
     investigatory organization, office, or equivalent 
     investigatory mechanism will be considered ``independent,'' 
     notwithstanding the fact that it is part of the international 
     financial institution, if it is autonomous from the 
     institution's procurement process and the office or 
     individual being investigated and reports directly to the 
     head of the institution or his designee, so long as such 
     designee has no operational or supervisory responsibilities 
     for the subject of the investigation.
     Sec. 589. Commercial Leasing of Defense Articles
       The conference agreement includes Senate language that 
     authorizes commercial leasing rather than sales of defense 
     articles for certain specified countries under certain 
     conditions. The House bill did not address this matter.
     Sec. 590. Foreign Military Expenditures Report
       The conference agreement repeals section 511(b) of 1993 
     Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related 
     Appropriations Act regarding matters to be included in the 
     annual human rights report to Congress by the Secretary of 
     State, as proposed by the Senate. The House bill did not 
     address this matter.
       The managers request that the Secretary of the Treasury 
     submit a one-time report to the Committees on Appropriations 
     which describes steps being taken to implement section 576 of 
     the 1997 Act and section 1502(b) of title XV of the 
     International Financial Institutions Act, both of which 
     address appropriate levels of military expenditures by

     countries in receipt of loans or credits from MDBs. The 
     report shall identify, among other things--(1) the countries 
     found not to be in compliance with the provisions of section 
     576 and instances where the United States Executive Director 
     has voted to oppose a loan as a result of that section; (2) 
     steps taken by the governments of countries to establish the 
     reporting systems addressed in section 576; (3) any instances 
     in which such governments have failed to provide information 
     requested by an international financial institution (IFI); 
     and (4) any policy changes that have been made by the IFIs 
     with regard to providing loans or credits to countries that 
     expend a significant portion of their financial resources for 
     their armed and security forces. The Senate included this 
     report in bill language. The House did not address the 
     matter.
     Sec. 591. Abolition of the Inter-American Foundation
       The conference agreement provides authority for the 
     President to abolish the Inter-American Foundation and 
     terminate its functions, as proposed by the Senate amendment. 
     The House bill did not address this matter.
     Sec. 592. Repeal of Requirement for Annual GAO Report on the 
         Financial Operations of the International Monetary Fund
       The conference agreement repeals existing law regarding an 
     annual General Accounting Office report of the financial 
     operations of the International Monetary Fund. The House bill 
     did not address this matter.
     Sec. 593. Extension of GAO Authorities
       The conference agreement provides that funds made available 
     to the General Accounting Office from fiscal year 1999 
     emergency supplemental appropriations for disaster relief in 
     Central America and the Caribbean shall remain available 
     until expended. This section is identical to the Senate 
     amendment. The House bill did not address this matter.
     Sec. 594. Funding for Serbia
       The conference agreement includes language that authorizes 
     up to $100,000,000 for assistance for Serbia, subject to 
     certain conditions that become effective after March 31, 
     2001. Funds obligated prior to that date would not be subject 
     to these conditions.
       The conditions include a determination and certification 
     that the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia 
     (FRY) is--
       (1) cooperating with the International Criminal Tribunal 
     for Yugoslavia including access for investigators, the 
     provision of documents, and the surrender and transfer of 
     indictees or assistance in their apprehension;
       (2) taking steps that are consistent with the Dayton 
     Accords to end Serbian financial, political, security, and 
     other support which has served to maintain separate Republika 
     Srpska institutions; and
       (3) taking steps to implement policies which reflect a 
     respect for minority rights and the rule of law.
       In addition, after March 31, 2001, the language provides 
     that the Secretary of the Treasury should instruct the United 
     States executive directors to international financial 
     institutions to support loans and assistance to the 
     Government of the FRY subject to these same conditions.
       The conditions described above do not apply to Montenegro, 
     Kosova, humanitarian assistance, or assistance to promote 
     democracy in municipalities.
       The language also provides that the Secretary of State 
     should instruct United States representatives to regional and 
     international organizations to support membership for the 
     Government of the FRY subject to a determination by the 
     President to the Committees on Appropriations that the FRY 
     has applied for membership on the same basis as the other 
     successor states to the FRY and has taken appropriate steps 
     to resolve issues related to state liabilities, assets, and 
     property.
       The House bill (in section 537) and the Senate amendment 
     would have prohibited assistance for Serbia, except for aid 
     to Kosova or Montenegro or to promote democracy.
     Sec. 595. Forest Initiative.
       The conference agreement includes a provision providing for 
     an exchange of federal lands and an audit of a public 
     enterprise. This matter was not addressed in the House bill 
     or the Senate amendment.
     Sec. 596. User Fees
       The conference agreement includes a provision which 
     requires the United States Executive Directors at all 
     multilateral development banks and the International Monetary 
     Fund to oppose any loan which requires user fees or service 
     charges on poor people for primary education or primary 
     health care. The managers further agree that user fees should 
     not be imposed or required through Bank or Fund sponsored 
     ``community financing,'' ``cost sharing,'' or ``cost 
     recovery'' mechanisms prepared in conjunctions with loans, 
     structural adjustment schemes or debt relief actions.
       The managers direct that the Committees on Appropriations 
     be notified within 10 days if any loans, community financing, 
     cost sharing, or cost recovery mechanisms requiring the 
     imposition of user fees are approved by any multilateral 
     development bank or the International Monetary Fund.
     Sec. 597. Basic Education Assistance for Pakistan
       The conference agreement includes a new provision allowing 
     development assistance or Economic Support Funds to be used 
     for basic education programs in Pakistan, notwithstanding any 
     provision of law that restricts assistance to foreign 
     countries. Any such assistance would be subject to the 
     regular notification procedures of the Committees on 
     Appropriations.
     Sec. 598. Family Planning
       The conference agreement provides a ceiling of $425,000,000 
     for population planning activities or other population 
     assistance but prohibits any of such funds from being 
     obligated or expended until February 15, 2001. The managers 
     believe this will afford adequate time for the exercise of 
     the authority of the President under the Foreign Assistance 
     Act and other law to determine what terms and conditions, if 
     any, should be imposed on assistance for population planning 
     and other population activities.
       PROVISIONS NOT ADOPTED BY THE CONFEREES:
       The conference agreement does not include section 530 of 
     the House bill or similar Senate language that would have 
     prohibited the transfer of Stinger missiles to countries 
     bordering the Persian Gulf notwithstanding any other 
     provision of law, but would have authorized the transfer of 
     Stinger missiles on a replacement basis subject to certain 
     specified conditions. This matter has been addressed by the 
     authorizing committees in H.R. 4919, the Security Assistance 
     Act of 2000.
       The conference agreement does not include section 577 of 
     the Senate amendment regarding stockpiling of defense

       The conference agreement does not contain section 582 of 
     the Senate amendment that would have deemed the Federal 
     Republic of Yugoslavia (with the exception of Montenegro and 
     Kosova) to be a state sponsor of terrorism until receipt of a 
     Presidential certification of certain occurrences within 
     Serbia. The House bill did not address this matter.
       The conference report does not include section 584 of the 
     Senate amendment that would have required that a number of 
     specified sanctions against Serbia remain in place until a 
     certification was issued by the President. The certification 
     would have required that Serbia comply with a number of 
     international agreements, and provided an exemption for 
     Montenegro and Kosova for the sanctions imposed through 
     international financial institutions. The House bill did not 
     address this matter.
       The conference agreement does not include section 586 of 
     the Senate amendment regarding the repeal of the final 
     proviso under title VI of the fiscal year 2000 appropriations 
     act for foreign operations, export financing, and related

     II.

     United States to oppose loans, credits or guarantees to the 
     Russian Federation, except for basic human needs, if the

     or components to the People's Republic of China. The House

            TITLE VI--EMERGENCY SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS

                     BILATERAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE

                  Funds Appropriated to the President

                  Agency for International Development


                   International Disaster Assistance

       The conference agreement appropriates $135,000,000 for 
     emergency supplemental appropriations for Mozambique, 
     Madagascar, and southern Africa rehabilitation and 
     reconstruction. The House bill proposed $160,000,000 and the 
     Senate amendment proposed $35,000,000. Congress has already 
     provided $25,000,000 in fiscal year 2000 supplemental funds 
     (Public Law 106-246) for this purpose. These funds are 
     provided in the ``International Disaster Assistance'' 
     account. All of these funds are made available only to the 
     extent that the President makes an official budget request 
     that includes designation of the entire amount as an 
     emergency requirement.
       The managers direct that the majority of funds be provided 
     for Mozambique and Madagascar, which suffered the most damage 
     from these cyclones and the resultant flooding. The managers 
     direct that no funds be made available to the government of 
     Zimbabwe. Further, the conference agreement prohibits the use 
     of funds under this title for nonproject assistance. This 
     prohibition is not intended to affect the accelerated 
     disbursement plan developed by AID for local currency 
     projects in Mozambique. The conference agreement allows up to 
     $12,000,000 of the funds appropriated under this heading to 
     be charged to obligations of previously appropriated funds. 
     The conference agreement provides that up to $5,000,000 of 
     the funds under this heading may be used for administrative 
     purposes, and may be merged with AID's operating expenses 
     budget.
       The Administrator of AID is directed to report in writing 
     to the Committees on Appropriations prior to the obligation 
     of any funds under this title. The report shall include a 
     detailed plan regarding a description of the projects and 
     programs to be carried out with these funds; the exact uses 
     of administrative expenses; and the bureau within AID 
     primarily responsible for carrying out these projects.

                  Funds Appropriated to the President

     Operating Expenses of the Agency for International Development

       The conference agreement appropriates $13,000,000 in 
     supplemental funds, to remain available until September 30, 
     2001, for the Operating Expenses of the Agency for 
     International Development. The funding is designated as an 
     emergency requirement and is intended to support the 
     obligation of program funds for southeast Europe. All of 
     these funds are made available only to the extent that the 
     President makes an official budget request that includes 
     designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement. 
     The House addressed this matter in H.R. 3908, the 2000 
     Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed the 
     House on March 30, 2000. The recommended level is the same as 
     that approved by the House. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter.

                  Other Bilateral Economic Assistance


          Assistance for Eastern Europe and the Baltic States

       The conference agreement appropriates $75,825,000 in 
     supplemental funds, to remain available until September 30, 
     2002, for assistance for Montenegro, Croatia, and Serbia. The 
     funding is designated as an emergency requirement. All of 
     these funds are made available only to the extent that the 
     President makes an official budget request that includes 
     designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement. 
     The House addressed this matter in H.R. 3908, the 2000 
     Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed the 
     House on March 30, 2000. The recommended level is 
     the $20,000,000 below the level approved by the House. The 
     Senate amendment did not address this matter.

                          MILITARY ASSISTANCE

                  Funds Appropriated to the President


             International Military Education and Training

       The conference agreement appropriates $2,875,000 in 
     supplemental funds, to remain available until September 30, 
     2002, for grants to countries of the Balkans and southeast 
     Europe notwithstanding section 10 of Public Law 91-672. The 
     funding is designated as an emergency requirement. All of 
     these funds are made available only to the extent that the 
     President makes an official budget request that includes 
     designation of the entire amount as an emergency requirement. 
     The House addressed this matter in H.R. 3908, the 2000 
     Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, which passed the 
     House on March 30, 2000. The recommended level is the same as 
     that approved by the House. The Senate amendment did not 
     address this matter.


                   Foreign Military Financing Program

       The conference agreement appropriates $31,000,000 in 
     supplemental funds, to remain available until September 30, 
     2002, for grants to carry out section 23 of the Arms Export 
     Control Act notwithstanding section 10 of Public Law 91-672. 
     These funds are nonrepayable notwithstanding sections 23(b) 
     and 23(c) of that Act. The funding is designated as an 
     emergency requirement. All of these funds are made available 
     only to the extent that the President makes an official 
     budget request that includes designation of the entire amount 
     as an emergency requirement. The House addressed this matter 
     in H.R. 3908, the 2000 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations 
     Act, which passed the House on March 30, 2000. The 
     recommended level is the same as that approved by the House. 
     The Senate amendment did not address this matter.

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

                           Debt Restructuring

       The conference agreement appropriates $210,000,000 in 
     supplemental funds, to remain available until expended under 
     the terms and conditions as included under this heading in 
     title II of the Act, for additional payments to the HIPC 
     Trust Fund administered by the International Bank for 
     Reconstruction and Development. The funding is designated as 
     an emergency requirement. All of these funds are made 
     available only to the extent that the President makes an 
     official budget request that includes designation of the 
     entire amount as an emergency requirement. The House bill and 
     the Senate amendment did not consider this matter, which was 
     requested as a Fiscal Year 2000 supplemental appropriation.

                       TITLE VII--DEBT REDUCTION

                       DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

                       Bureau of the Public Debt


      GIFTS TO THE UNITED STATES FOR REDUCTION OF THE PUBLIC DEBT

       The conference agreement provides $5,000,000,000 for the 
     account established under section 3113(d) of title 31, United 
     States Code, to reduce the public debt.

             TITLE VIII--INTERNATIONAL DEBT FORGIVENESS AND

              INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS REFORM

       The conference agreement includes language similar to that 
     reported by the Foreign Relations Committee as S. 3129. This 
     matter was not addressed by the House bill and the Senate 
     amendment.
       Section 801 repeals the existing limitation on the 
     availability of earnings on profits of nonpublic gold sales 
     by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and authorizes 
     $435,000,000 for a United States contribution to the Heavily 
     Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Trust Fund. It also requires 
     the Secretary of the Treasury to certify that specified 
     policy reforms are being implemented by the World Bank and 
     the IMF, or, if such certification can not be made, report on 
     the progress, if any, made by the Bank and Fund in adopting 
     and implementing such reform policies.
       Section 802 seeks to strengthen procedures for monitoring 
     use of funds by multilateral development banks (MDBs). 
     Section 803 requires the Comptroller General or the Secretary 
     of the Treasury to make annual reports on the sufficiency of 
     audits of the financial operations of each MDB, actions taken 
     by beneficiary countries to reduce the opportunity for 
     bribery and corruption, and the graduation policies of IDA.
       Section 804 repeals a provision of the Foreign Assistance 
     Act of 1961 relating to bilateral funding for international 
     financial institutions.

       The total new budget (obligational) authority for the 
     fiscal year 2001 recommended by the Committee of Conference, 
     with comparisons to the fiscal year 2000 amount, the 2001
