     SEC. 212. LIMITATION ON THE INDIVIDUAL CARBINE PROGRAM.

       (a) Limitation.--Notwithstanding any other provision of 
     law, and except as provided by subsection (b), the individual 
     carbine program may not receive Milestone C approval (as 
     defined in section 2366(e)(8) of title 10, United States 
     Code) until the date on which the Secretary of the Army 
     submits to the congressional defense committees an analysis 
     of alternatives of such program, including, at a minimum,

     SEC. 213. LIMITATION ON AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS FOR OHIO-CLASS 
                   BALLISTIC MISSILE SUBMARINE REPLACEMENT 
                   PROGRAM.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) On May 13, 2010, the President submitted to Congress 
     the report required under section 1251 of the National 
     Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 (Public Law 
     111-84; 123 Stat. 2549) that stated, ``The Secretary of 
     Defense, based on recommendations from the Joint

[[Page H3446]]

     Chiefs of Staff, has established a baseline nuclear force 
     structure that fully supports U.S. security requirements and 
     conforms to the New START limits. . . The United States will 
     reduce the number of SLBM launchers (launch tubes) from 24 to 
     20 per SSBN, and deploy no more than 240 SLBMs at any 
     time.''.
       (2) On January 10, 2011, the Under Secretary of Defense for 
     Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics issued an acquisition 
     decision memorandum for the Ohio-class submarine replacement 
     program whereby the Navy received Milestone A approval to 
     proceed with a replacement design based on 16 missile tubes.
       (3) Consistent with the reductions and limitations 
     established in the New START Treaty, which entered into force 
     on February 5, 2011, more than two-thirds of the deployed 
     nuclear deterrent force of the United States are planned to 
     be carried on ballistic missile submarines.
       (4) The Commander of the United States Strategic Command 
     testified on March 2, 2011, that, ``The issue of the number 
     of tubes is not a simple black and white answer,'' but rather 
     it is comprised of several issues including, ``the overall 
     number of tubes we wind up with at the end. . . flexibility 
     and options with how many warheads per missile per tube. . . 
     the overall number of boats. . . and many other factors.''. 
     He further stated that, ``Sixteen [missile tubes per 
     submarine] will meet STRATCOM's requirements, given that we 
     are sitting here 20 years in advance.''.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the long-term ability of the United States to maintain 
     a nuclear force sufficient to address the range of mission 
     requirements necessary to deter, dissuade, and defeat 
     potential adversaries and assure allies and partners must not 
     be comprised solely on the basis of the promise of potential 
     cost savings resulting from the decision of the Secretary of 
     Defense to reduce the planned number of missile tubes per 
     Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine from 24 to 16; and
       (2) because the planned Ohio-class replacement ballistic 
     submarine is expected to be in operation through 2080, near-
     term design decisions should take into consideration 
     uncertainties in the future threat and strategic environment.
       (c) Limitation.--
       (1) In general.--Of the funds authorized to be appropriated 
     by this Act or otherwise made available for fiscal year 2012

     the Ohio-class ballistic submarine replacement program, not 
     more than 90 percent may be obligated or expended until the 
     date on which the Secretary of Defense submits to the 
     congressional defense committees a report containing--
       (A) a summary of the analysis conducted to support the 
     acquisition decision memorandum, including any assessment of 
     the threat and strategic environment and mission requirements 
     that informed the decision to reduce the planned number of 
     missile tubes per submarine from 20 (as stated in the report 
     submitted to Congress under section 1251 of the National 
     Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 (Public Law 
     111-84; 123 Stat. 2549)) to 16 (as stated in the acquisition 
     decision memorandum);
       (B) a description of the threat and strategic environment 
     assumed by the Secretary throughout the expected operational 
     lifetime of the program, including how the Secretary would 
     address significant changes to such threat and strategic 
     environment;
       (C) a description of any other assumptions made by the 
     Secretary throughout the expected operational lifetime of the 
     program that provides the rationale of the Secretary to 
     reduce the planned number of missile tubes per submarine to 
     16, including assumptions regarding--
       (i) changes in nuclear policy and strategy;
       (ii) changes in the role of ballistic missile submarines as 
     a part of the overall nuclear forces of the United States; 
     and
       (iii) further nuclear reductions, whether conducted under 
     an international agreement or unilaterally;
       (D) an identification of key risks to missions or 
     requirements that may be increased because of the Secretary's 
     decision to reduce the planned number of missile tubes per 
     submarine to 16, including whether the Secretary plans to 
     accept or mitigate such risks; and
       (E) a summary of the rigorous cost comparison of the 
     designs for 16 missile tubes per submarine and 20 missile 
     tubes per submarine, consistent with the direction provided 
     in the acquisition decision memorandum, including the 
     accuracy of the cost estimate of the procurement cost of each 
     submarine.
       (2) Form.--The report under paragraph (1) shall be 
     submitted in unclassified form, but may include a classified 
     annex.
       (d) Definitions.--In this section:
       (1) The term ``acquisition decision memorandum'' means the 
     acquisition decision memorandum regarding the Ohio-class 
     submarine replacement program issued by the Under Secretary 
     of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics on

                   EXTENDED AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM.

       (a) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the United States should pursue options with respect to 
     multilaterally terminating the contract covering the medium 
     extended air defense system in order to lessen the contract 
     termination liability belonging to the United States;
       (2) the Secretary of Defense must now sustain the Patriot 
     air and missile defense system longer than previously 
     planned;
       (3) the Secretary of Defense should identify promising 
     technologies from the medium extended air defense system, 
     whether the technology originated in the United States or in 
     a partner country, as soon as practicable and transition such 
     technologies into a Patriot air and missile defense system 
     upgrade effort or other program of record; and
       (4) the Secretary of Defense should continue to pursue 
     international cooperative missile defense activities that are 
     affordable and benefit the security of all parties.
       (b) Limitation.--None of the funds authorized to be 
     appropriated by this Act or otherwise made available for 
     fiscal year 2012 for the medium extended air defense system 
     program may be obligated or expended until the date on which 
     the Secretary of Defense--
       (1) either--
       (A) negotiates a multilateral termination with respect to 
     the contract covering the program; or
       (B) restructures such program and ensures that specific 
     deliverables under such contract will be transitioned to one 
     or more current programs of record by not later than 
     September 30, 2013; and
       (2) submits to the congressional defense committees written 
     notification of--
       (A) the amount of the total cost for which the United 
     States is liable with respect to terminating the contract 
     under paragraph (1)(A) or restructuring the program under 
     paragraph (1)(B), as the case may be;
       (B) the terms of such contract termination or program 
     restructuring;

     SEC. 233. HOMELAND DEFENSE HEDGING POLICY AND STRATEGY.

       (a) Policy.--It is the policy of the United States to 
     develop and maintain a hedging strategy to provide for the 
     protection of the homeland of the United States that--
       (1) provides such protection through the phased, adaptive 
     approach to missile defense in Europe if--
       (A) the intercontinental ballistic missile threat from the 
     Middle East to the United States materializes earlier than 
     2020 (the year in which phase four of the phased, adaptive 
     approach is planned to begin protecting the homeland of the 
     United States); or
       (B) technical challenges or schedule delays affect the 
     availability of the standard missile-3 block IIB interceptor 
     planned for fielding in Europe by 2020 in order to protect 
     the homeland of the United States as part of such phase four;
       (2) provides such protection if the intercontinental 
     ballistic missile threat from East Asia to the United States 
     materializes more rapidly than expected;
       (3) provides capabilities that improve or enhance the 
     protection of the United States beyond the ground-based 
     midcourse defense capabilities currently deployed for the 
     defense of the United States; and
       (4) includes plans for ensuring that such hedging 
     capabilities described in paragraphs (1) through (3)--
       (A) are suitable to perform the assigned mission;
       (B) are operationally effective; and
       (C) use technologies that are sufficiently matured and 
     tested prior to fielding.
       (b) Strategy.--
       (1) In general.--In light of the policy described in 
     subsection (a), the Secretary of Defense shall develop a 
     hedging strategy to provide for the protection of the 
     homeland of the United States.
       (2) Elements.--The strategy under paragraph (1) shall 
     include the following:
       (A) A description of the hedging alternatives and 
     capabilities considered by the Secretary.
       (B) A summary of the analyses conducted, including--
       (i) criteria used to assess such options and capabilities; 
     and
       (ii) the findings and recommendations of such analyses.
       (C) Detailed plans, programs, and a budget profile for 
     implementing the strategy through 2022.

     development of such strategy.

     SEC. 234. GROUND-BASED MIDCOURSE DEFENSE SYSTEM.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) The last two intercept flight tests of the ground-based 
     midcourse defense system in January 2010 and December 2010 
     failed to intercept, and in January 2011, the Director of the 
     Missile Defense Agency halted deliveries of completed exo-
     atmospheric kill vehicles until the root cause of such 
     failures is determined and resolved.
       (2) The ground-based midcourse defense system is currently 
     the only missile defense system that protects the homeland of 
     the United States from long-range ballistic missile threats.
       (3) In the fiscal year 2010 budget request, the ground-
     based midcourse defense system element was reduced by 
     $524,600,000 from the fiscal year 2009 level while the fiscal 
     year 2011 budget request restored $318,800,000 of this 
     funding.
       (4) The fiscal year 2012 budget request further reduces the 
     ground-based midcourse defense system element by $185,000,000 
     for fiscal year 2012

[[Page H3449]]

     and further reduces such element by an additional 
     $1,000,000,000 for the years covering the future-years 
     defense program from the amount projected in the fiscal year 
     2011 budget request.
       (5) According to the Missile Defense Agency, the 
     combination of the two flight-test failures and operating 
     under the reduced spending limits of the Continuing 
     Resolutions during fiscal year 2011 before the date on which 
     the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing 
     Appropriations Act, 2011 (Public Law 112-10) was enacted have 
     resulted in the delay or restructuring of several activities 
     within the ground-based midcourse defense system element, 
     including--
       (A) delays to ground-based interceptor manufacturing and 
     fleet upgrades;
       (B) Stockpile Reliability Program component testing;
       (C) new capability development, modeling, testing, and 
     fielding;
       (D) Fort Greely missile defense complex communications 
     upgrades; and
       (E) delays to flight testing of the two-stage ground-based 
     interceptor.
       (6) According to the Missile Defense Agency and the United 
     States Northern Command, the procurement of additional 
     ground-based interceptors will be necessary in light of the 
     recent flight-test results.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that 
     the ground-based midcourse defense system is currently the 
     only missile defense system that protects the homeland of the 
     United States from long-range ballistic missile threats and 
     therefore--
       (1) the system should be given sufficient prioritization 
     and funding to ensure its long-term reliability, 
     effectiveness, and ability to adapt to advances in such 
     threats;
       (2) the Director of the Missile Defense Agency should 
     thoroughly identify the root cause associated with the exo-
     atmospheric kill vehicle that led to the flight-test failures 
     described in subsection (a)(1) and identify other potential 
     technical issues associated with the exo-atmospheric kill 
     vehicle or ground-based midcourse defense system that have 
     materialized in recent testing;
       (3) implementation of corrective measures and flight 
     testing should be undertaken as soon as possible to provide 
     commanders of the combatant commands and the American people 
     greater confidence in the reliability and effectiveness of 
     the system; and
       (4) the procurement of additional ground-based interceptors 
     will be necessary in light of recent flight-test results.
       (c) Plan and Certification Required.--Not later than 30 
     days after the date of the enactment of this Act, or on the 
     date on which the Failure Review Board has completed the 
     review of the ground-based midcourse defense system flight-
     test failures described in subsection (a)(1), whichever is 
     later, the Secretary of Defense shall submit to the 
     congressional defense committees the following:
       (1) A plan by the Director of the Missile Defense Agency to 
     address the flight-test failures, including--
       (A) an identification of the root cause associated with the 
     exo-atmospheric kill vehicle that led to the flight-test 
     failures;
       (B) an identification of other potential technical issues 
     associated with the exo-atmospheric kill vehicle or ground-
     based midcourse defense system that have materialized in 
     recent testing;
       (C) how the Director will resolve the issues identified in 
     subparagraph (A) and (B), including a consideration of 
     whether a re-designed exo-atmospheric kill vehicle is 
     necessary;
       (D) a description of planned flight tests of the exo-
     atmospheric kill vehicle with any implemented fixes;
       (E) a summary of the measures required by the Commander of 
     the United States Northern Command based on the flight-test 
     failures in order to meet operational requirements; and
       (F) the schedule and additional resources necessary to 
     implement the plan.
       (2) Written certification by the Secretary that--
       (A) the Director has thoroughly investigated the root cause 
     of the flight-test failures and any other potential technical 
     issues associated with the exo-atmospheric kill vehicle or 
     ground-based midcourse defense system that have materialized 
     in recent testing;
       (B) the plan under paragraph (1) is sufficient to resolve 
     the issues identified in subparagraph (A) and (B) of such 
     paragraph;
       (C) the schedule and additional resources described in 
     subparagraph (F) of paragraph (1) are sufficient to implement 
     the plan under such paragraph; and
       (D) the Director has sufficiently prioritized the 
     implementation of corrective measures and flight testing of 
     the ground-based midcourse defense system.

       Section 44718 of title 49, United States Code, is amended 
     by adding at the end the following new subsection:
       ``(e) Review of Aeronautical Studies.--The Administrator of

     SEC. 333. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING INTEGRATION OF 
                   BALLISTIC MISSILE DEFENSE TRAINING ACROSS AND 
                   BETWEEN COMBATANT COMMANDS AND MILITARY 
                   SERVICES.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that ballistic missile 
     defense is an inherently joint operation that requires close 
     coordination between combatant commands and military services 
     at all levels, from the strategic to the operational to the 
     tactical. Since the time available to identify, track, and 
     intercept ballistic missiles will be less than 30 minutes, 
     joint training to improve the ability of the military 
     departments and combatant commands to work together is 
     essential for successfully planning and conducting ballistic 
     missile defense operations. Congress has previously expressed 
     concern that gaps in joint missile defense training, from the 
     lowest sensor or shooter operator level to the highest levels 
     of decision-making on combatant command staffs, must be 
     identified and rectified.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) improving the integration of ballistic missile defense 
     training across and between combatant commands and military 
     services and fully identifying the training requirements, 
     capabilities, and resources that the Department of Defense 
     needs to effectively train for this complex mission is vital 
     to the protection of the United States against ballistic 
     missile attacks;
       (2) identifying and addressing training gaps in integrating 
     missile defense training is essential for successfully 
     employing the Ballistic Missile Defense System; and
       (3) identifying the capabilities and funding needed to 
     effectively and adequately integrate training across and 
     between the combatant commands and military services is 
     important to ensure that training priorities are being met 
     and that resources are aligned to support the training.

     SEC. 368. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON PROPOSED FEDERAL AVIATION 
                   ADMINISTRATION CHANGES TO FLIGHT CREW MEMBER 
                   DUTY AND REST REQUIREMENTS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) Section 212 of the Airline Safety and Federal Aviation 
     Administration Extension Act of 2010 (Public Law 111-216; 49 
     U.S.C. 44701 note) directed the Administrator of the Federal 
     Aviation Administration to issue regulations, based on the 
     best available scientific information, to specify limitations 
     on the hours of flight and duty time allowed for pilots to 
     address problems relating to pilot fatigue.
       (2) On September 14, 2010, the Federal Aviation 
     Administration issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking titled 
     ``Flightcrew Member Duty and Rest Requirements''.
       (3) Between March 2010 and March 2011, the Air Mobility 
     Command and its Civil Reserve Air Fleet partners airlifted 
     more than 2,000,000 passengers and 848,000 tons of cargo 
     around the world in support of the missions of the Department 
     of Defense.
       (4) An Air Force Institute of Technology study titled 
     ``Civil Reserve Airlift Fleet (CRAF) Crew Rest Study'' 
     analyzed 2264 missions flown by Civil Reserve Air Fleet 
     carriers under contract with the Department of Defense 
     between May and September 2011, and concluded that over 80 
     percent of those missions may have been infeasible had the 
     proposed rule referred to in paragraph (2) been in effect 
     during such period.
       (5) On February 15, 2011, General Duncan J. McNabb, 
     Commander of the United States Transportation Command, wrote 
     to the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration 
     expressing significant concern about the proposed rule change 
     and stating that the Operational Risk Management approach of 
     the United States Transportation Command mitigated 
     operational hazards and included ``reasonable measures to 
     reduce risk to personnel, equipment and the mission''. In the 
     letter, General McNabb noted that he believes there is room 
     for proper exceptions to the proposed rule and went on to 
     write that ``through cooperation, we can develop mutually 
     acceptable guidelines that not only mitigate the impact of 
     crew fatigue, but afford all carriers the flexibility to 
     implement safer aircrew processes''.
       (6) The United States Transportation Command is relying 
     heavily on the Civil Reserve Air Fleet as a critical partner 
     as they effectively and efficiently deploy and sustain the 
     warfighter in simultaneous operations in Afghanistan, Iraq, 
     and Libya and in relief operations in Japan.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) when faced with immediate and long-term world events, 
     the superb team of the United States Transportation Command 
     successfully overcomes many obstacles to support the national 
     security objectives of the United States with world-class 
     logistics and the Civil Reserve Air Fleet program is one of 
     the major reasons they deliver both combat power and 
     humanitarian relief on time, on target, and at best value to 
     the taxpayer;
       (2) the Administrator of the Federal Aviation 
     Administration should make every effort to ensure that any 
     changes to guidelines, regulations, and rules of the Federal 
     Aviation Administration, including changes to the Flightcrew 
     Member Duty and Rest Requirements, fully consider the impact 
     of such changes on Civil Reserve Air Fleet carriers, the 
     United States Transportation Command, and the Department of 
     Defense; and
       (3) the Administrator of the Federal Aviation 
     Administration, in consultation with the Commander of the 
     United States Transportation Command, should develop 
     guidelines that address not only crew fatigue, but also 
     enhance safety while minimizing the impact on the mission of 
     the United States Transportation Command and the Department 
     of Defense.

     ``Sec. 650. Findings regarding unique nature, demands, and

       ``Congress makes the following findings:
       ``(1) Section 8 (clauses 12, 13, and 14) of Article I of 
     the Constitution of the United States commits exclusively to 
     Congress the powers to raise and support armies, provide and 
     maintain a Navy, and make rules for the government and 
     regulation of the land and naval forces.
       ``(2) There is no constitutional right to serve in the 
     armed forces.
       ``(3) Pursuant to the powers conferred by section 8 of 
     article I of the Constitution of the United States, it lies 
     within the discretion of the Congress to establish 
     qualifications for and conditions of service in the armed 
     forces.
       ``(4) The primary purpose of the armed forces is to prepare 
     for and to prevail in combat should the need arise.
       ``(5) The conduct of military operations requires members 
     of the armed forces to make extraordinary sacrifices, 
     including the ultimate sacrifice, in order to provide for the 
     common defense.
       ``(6) Success in combat requires military units that are 
     characterized by high morale, good order and discipline, and 
     unit cohesion.

[[Page H3458]]

       ``(7) One of the most critical elements in combat 
     capability is unit cohesion, that is, the bonds of trust 
     among individual service members that make the combat 
     effectiveness of a military unit greater than the sum of the 
     combat effectiveness of the individual unit members.
       ``(8) Military life is fundamentally different from 
     civilian life in that--
       ``(A) the extraordinary responsibilities of the armed 
     forces, the unique conditions of military service, and the 
     critical role of unit cohesion, require that the military 
     community, while subject to civilian control, exist as a 
     specialized society; and
       ``(B) the military society is characterized by its own 
     laws, rules, customs, and traditions, including numerous 
     restrictions on personal behavior, that would not be 
     acceptable in civilian society.
       ``(9) The standards of conduct for members of the armed 
     forces regulate a member's life for 24 hours each day 
     beginning at the moment the member enters military status and 
     not ending until that person is discharged or otherwise 
     separated from the armed forces.
       ``(10) Those standards of conduct, including the Uniform 
     Code of Military Justice, apply to a member of the armed 
     forces at all times that the member has a military status, 
     whether the member is on base or off base, and whether the 
     member is on duty or off duty.

     conduct is necessary because members of the armed forces must 
     be ready at all times for worldwide deployment to a combat 
     environment.
       ``(12) The worldwide deployment of United States military 
     forces, the international responsibilities of the United 
     States, and the potential for involvement of the armed forces 
     in actual combat routinely make it necessary for members of 
     the armed forces involuntarily to accept living conditions 
     and working conditions that are often spartan, primitive, and 
     characterized by forced intimacy with little or no privacy.
       ``(13) The armed forces must maintain personnel policies 
     that are intended to recruit and retain only those persons 
     whose presence in the armed forces serve the needs of the 
     armed forces, contribute to the accomplishment of the 
     missions of the armed forces, and maintain the armed forces' 
     high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit 
     cohesion that are the essence of military capability.''.

     decision is issued by the Secretary concerned pursuant to 
     section 1552 of this title or by the Secretary of Homeland 
     Security or the Secretary of Defense pursuant to subsections 
     (f) or (g) of section 1034 of this title, any person 
     aggrieved by such a decision may obtain judicial review of

     authority under this section, the reviewing court shall 
     review the record of the decision and may hold unlawful and 
     set aside any decision demonstrated by the petitioner in the 
     record to be--
       ``(1) arbitrary or capricious;
       ``(2) not based on substantial evidence;
       ``(3) a result of material error of fact or material 
     administrative error, but only if the petitioner identified 
     to the correction board how the failure to follow such 
     procedures substantially prejudiced the petitioner's right to 
     relief, and shows to the reviewing court by a preponderance 
     of the evidence that the error was harmful; or
       ``(4) otherwise contrary to law.
       ``(c) Relief.--In exercising its authority under this 
     section, the reviewing court shall affirm, modify, vacate, or 
     reverse the decision, or remand the matter, as appropriate.

     subsections (a), (b), and (c), the reviewing court does not 
     have jurisdiction to entertain any matter or issue raised in 
     a petition of review that is not justiciable.
       ``(e) Decision Must Be Final.--(1) No judicial review may 
     be made under this section unless the petitioner shall first 
     have requested a correction under section 1552 of this title, 
     and the Secretary concerned shall have rendered a final 
     decision denying that correction in whole or in part. In a 
     case in which the final decision of the Secretary concerned 
     is subject to review by the Secretary of Defense under 
     section 1034(g) of this title, the petitioner is not required 
     to seek such review by the Secretary of Defense before 
     obtaining judicial review under this section. If the 
     petitioner seeks review by the Secretary of Defense under 
     section 1034(g) of this title, no judicial review may be made 
     until the Secretary of Defense shall have rendered a final 
     decision denying that request in whole or in part.

     Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, a petition 
     for judicial review under this section must be filed within

     the untimely filing of a request for correction of military 
     records is not subject to judicial review under this section 
     or otherwise subject to review in any court.

     1552(a)(1) of this title declining to reconsider or reopen a 
     previous denial or partial denial of a request for correction 
     of military records is not subject to judicial review under 
     this section or otherwise subject to review in any court.

     cause of action arising after the end of the one-year period 
     beginning on the date of the enactment of the National 
     Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, no court 
     shall have jurisdiction to entertain any request for 
     correction of records cognizable under subsection (f) or (g) 
     of section 1034 or section 1552 of this title except as 
     provided in this section.

     SEC. 596. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING PLAYING OF BUGLE CALL 
                   COMMONLY KNOWN AS ``TAPS'' AT MILITARY 
                   FUNERALS, MEMORIAL SERVICES, AND WREATH LAYING 
                   CEREMONIES.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The bugle call commonly known as ``Taps'' is known 
     throughout the United States as part of the military honors 
     accorded at funerals, memorial services, and wreath 
     ceremonies held for members of the uniformed services and 
     veterans.
       (2) In July 1862, following the Seven Days Battles, Union 
     General Daniel Butterfield and bugler Oliver Willcox Norton 
     created ``Taps'' at Berkley Plantation, Virginia, as a way to 
     signal the end of daily military activities.
       (3) ``Taps'' is now established by the uniformed services 
     as the last call of the day and is sounded at the completion 
     of a military funeral.
       (4) ``Taps'' has become the signature, solemn musical 
     farewell for members of the uniformed services and veterans 
     who have faithfully served the United States during times of 
     war and peace.
       (5) Over its almost 150 years of use, ``Taps'' has been 
     woven into the historical fabric of the United States.
       (6) When sounded, ``Taps'' summons emotions of loss, pride, 
     honor, and respect and encourages Americans to remember 
     patriots who served the United States with honor and valor.
       (7) The 150th anniversary of the writing of ``Taps'' will 
     be observed with events culminating in June 2012 with a 
     rededication of the Taps Monument at Berkley Plantation, 
     Virginia.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that at 
     a military funeral, memorial service, or wreath laying, the 
     bugle call commonly known as ``Taps'', consisting of 24 notes 
     sounded on a bugle or trumpet, should be sounded by a live 
     solo bugler or trumpeter when such arrangements are possible.

     SEC. 597. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING SUPPORT FOR YELLOW 
                   RIBBON DAY.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The hopes and prayers of the American people for the 
     safe return of members of the Armed Forces serving overseas 
     are demonstrated through the proud display of yellow ribbons.
       (2) The designation of a ``Yellow Ribbon Day'' would serve 
     as an additional reminder for all Americans of the continued 
     sacrifice of members of the Armed Forces.
       (3) Yellow Ribbon Day would also recognize the history and 
     meaning of the Yellow Ribbon as the symbol of support for 
     members of the Armed Forces.
       (4) Yellow Ribbon Day would also signify a tribute and 
     remembrance to all Prisoners of War and a fervent hope for 
     the safe return and full accounting of all members of the 
     Armed Forces who are Missing in Action.
       (5) April 9th would be an appropriate day to designate as 
     Yellow Ribbon Day as it was on April 9, 2004, that Staff 
     Sergeant Matt Maupin became the first Prisoner of War of 
     Operation Iraqi Freedom.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--Congress supports the goals and 
     ideals of Yellow Ribbon Day in honor of members of the Armed 
     Forces who are serving overseas apart from their families and 
     loved ones.

                   STATION, GUANTANAMO BAY, CUBA.

       (a) Review Process.--The Secretary of Defense shall 
     establish a review process to review the detention of each 
     individual detained at Guantanamo. Such review process shall 
     be designed to determine whether the continued military 
     detention of each such individual is necessary to protect the 
     national security of the United States. The review process 
     shall include, for each such individual, a full review not 
     less than once every three years and a limited file review 
     not less than once every year.
       (b) Relationship to Other Laws.--The review process 
     established by this section shall not affect the jurisdiction 
     of any Federal court to determine the legality of the 
     detention of an individual detained at Guantanamo.
       (c) Military Review Panels.--The Secretary shall establish 
     military review panels to carry out the reviews required by 
     subsection (a). Each military panel shall be made up of 
     military officers with expertise in operations, intelligence, 
     and counterterrorism matters. Any officer assigned to a 
     military panel under this subsection must have the necessary 
     security clearances to review all information submitted by 
     the Government in any proceeding before the panel.
       (d) Procedures for Full Review.--
       (1) Military personal representatives.--In any full review 
     proceeding before a military panel established pursuant to 
     subsection (c), an individual detained at Guantanamo shall be 
     assisted by a military personal representative with the 
     appropriate security clearance. The military personal 
     representative shall appear before the military panel to 
     advocate on behalf of the individual and to introduce 
     information on behalf of the individual.
       (2) Military panel proceedings.--During a proceeding before 
     such a military panel, such an individual, with the 
     assistance of the individual's military personal 
     representative, shall be permitted to--
       (A) present to the military panel a written or oral 
     statement;
       (B) introduce relevant information, including written 
     declarations;
       (C) answer any questions posed by the military panel; and
       (D) call witnesses who are reasonably available and willing 
     to provide information that is relevant and material to 
     whether the individual represents a continuing threat to the 
     United States or its allies.
       (3) Advance notice of summary of information.--Such an 
     individual shall be provided, in writing and in a language 
     the individual understands, with advance notice of an 
     unclassified summary of the factors and information the 
     military panel will consider, including mitigating 
     information described in paragraph (7)(D), in making a 
     recommendation with respect to the individual's continued 
     military detention.
       (4) Provision of information to military personal 
     representative.--The Government's submission to the military 
     panel regarding the threat posed by such an individual and 
     any mitigating information described in paragraph (7)(D) 
     shall be provided to the military personal representative for 
     the individual. Where it is necessary to protect national 
     security, including the protection of intelligence sources 
     and methods, the panel may determine that the military 
     personal representative must receive a sufficient substitute 
     or summary of classified information, rather than the 
     underlying information.
       (5) Permitted actions by outside parties.--An outside 
     party, including any private counsel for such an individual, 
     may file a written submission to the military panel on the 
     question of whether the individual represents a threat to the 
     national security of the United States. An outside party 
     filing such a submission must obtain written permission from 
     the individual before filing the submission.
       (6) Timeframe for review.--A full review of an individual 
     detained at Guantanamo to determine whether the continued 
     military detention of the individual is necessary may not 
     take place sooner than 21 days after the individual first 
     becomes an individual detained at Guantanamo.
       (7) Factors for consideration.--In conducting a full review 
     of an individual detained at Guantanamo, the panel shall 
     consider whether the individual represents a continuing 
     threat to the United States or its allies, taking into 
     consideration the following factors:
       (A) The likelihood the individual will resume terrorist 
     activity if transferred or released.
       (B) The likelihood the individual will reestablish ties 
     with an organization engaged in hostilities against the 
     United States or its allies if transferred or released.
       (C) The behavior of the individual while in military 
     custody.
       (D) Any information reviewed by the officials preparing the 
     Government's submission to the panel that tends to mitigate 
     the threat posed by the individual.
       (8) Intelligence information factor.--In conducting a full 
     review of an individual detained at Guantanamo, the panel 
     shall consider the factor of whether information known to the 
     individual could be of significant intelligence value to the 
     national security of the United States, taking into 
     consideration information provided by the intelligence 
     community, including an overall assessment provided by the 
     Director of National Intelligence regarding the intelligence 
     value of the information known by the individual.
       (9) Recommendation.--The panel shall evaluate the factors 
     described in paragraphs (7) and (8) with respect to an 
     individual detained at Guantanamo, taking into consideration 
     the totality of the circumstances, and shall make a 
     recommendation with respect to whether the continued military 
     detention of the individual is necessary.
       (e) Procedures for File Review.--
       (1) Government submission of information.--For each annual 
     file review of an individual detained at Guantanamo, the 
     Government shall submit to a military panel established under 
     subsection (c) any significant new information regarding the 
     threat posed by the individual to the United States or its 
     allies, including significant mitigating information reviewed 
     by the officers compiling the material submitted by the 
     Government.
       (2) Individual written submission.--The individual 
     receiving the file review may submit to the panel such 
     written information as the individual determines appropriate.
       (3) Commencement of full review.--If, during the course of 
     a file review of an individual, a significant question is 
     raised as to whether the continued military detention of the 
     individual is necessary, the Secretary of Defense shall 
     promptly convene a full review of the individual in 
     accordance with this section.
       (f) Previously Provided Information.--The officers 
     assembling the Government submission to a military panel for 
     a full review under subsection (d) or a file review under 
     subsection (e) shall include in their review to prepare the 
     submission any information previously provided by the 
     Government in discovery for a case before a military 
     commission or a proceeding in a Federal court relating to a

     military detention, if the review board accepts the 
     recommendation of the military panel, the review board shall 
     identify a suitable location outside the United States to

     rejects the recommendation of a military panel with respect 
     to an individual detained at Guantanamo, the military panel 
     may reevaluate the individual. The military panel shall 
     determine whether to reevaluate such an individual by not 
     later than 10 days after the date on which the review board 
     rejects the recommendation of the panel, and shall complete

     SEC. 1054. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON NUCLEAR FORCE REDUCTIONS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:

[[Page H3490]]

       (1) As of September 30, 2009, the stockpile of nuclear 
     weapons of the United States has been reduced by 84 percent 
     from its maximum level in 1967 and by more than 75 percent 
     from its level when the Berlin Wall fell in November 1989.
       (2) The number of non-strategic nuclear weapons of the 
     United States has declined by approximately 90 percent from 
     September 30, 1991, to September 30, 2009.
       (3) The Treaty between the United States of America and the 
     Russian Federation on Measures for the Further Reduction and 
     Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (commonly known as the 
     ``New START Treaty'') signed on April 8, 2010, and entered 
     into force on February 5, 2011, will significantly reduce the 
     strategic nuclear forces of the United States to 1,550 
     deployed warheads and a combined limit of 800 deployed and 
     nondeployed intercontinental ballistic missile launchers, 
     submarine launched ballistic missile launchers, and heavy 
     bombers equipped to carry nuclear weapons.
       (4) The Nuclear Posture Review of April 2010 stated that, 
     ``the President has directed a review of potential future 
     reductions in U.S. nuclear weapons below New START levels.''.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) any reductions in the nuclear forces of the United 
     States should be supported by a thorough assessment of the 
     strategic environment, threat, and policy and the technical 
     and operational implications of such reductions; and
       (2) specific criteria are necessary to guide future 
     decisions regarding further reductions in the nuclear forces 
     of the United States.

     SEC. 1055. LIMITATION ON NUCLEAR FORCE REDUCTIONS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) As of September 30, 2009, the stockpile of nuclear 
     weapons of the United States has been reduced by 84 percent 
     from its maximum level in 1967 and by more than 75 percent 
     from its level when the Berlin Wall fell in November 1989.
       (2) The number of non-strategic nuclear weapons of the 
     United States has declined by approximately 90 percent from 
     September 30, 1991, to September 30, 2009.
       (3) The President of the United States, in a letter dated 
     December 18, 2010, declared that, ``I recognize that nuclear 
     modernization requires investment for the long-term, in 
     addition to this one-year budget increase. That is my 
     commitment to the Congress that my Administration will pursue 
     these programs and capabilities for as long as I am 
     President. In future years, we will provide annual updates to 
     the [report required under section 1251 of the National 
     Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 (Public Law 
     111-84; 123 Stat. 2549)].''.
       (4) On March 29, 2011, the Assistant to the President for 
     National Security Affairs stated, ``As we implement New 
     START, we're making preparations for the next round of 
     nuclear reductions. Under the President's direction, the 
     Department of Defense will review our strategic requirements 
     and develop options for further reductions in our current 
     nuclear stockpile, which stands at approximately 5,000 
     warheads, including both deployed and reserve warheads. To 
     develop these options for further reductions, we need to 
     consider several factors, such as potential changes in 
     targeting requirements and alert postures that are required 
     for effective deterrence.''.
       (b) Implementation of New START Treaty.--
       (1) Limitation.--

     START Treaty be contingent on the certification by the 
     Secretary of Defense that ``such reduction does not require a 
     change in targeting strategy from counterforce targeting to 
     countervalue targeting''.
       (2) On March 29, 2011, the Assistant to the President for 
     National Security Affairs stated, ``As we implement New 
     START, we're making preparations for the next round of 
     nuclear reductions. Under the President's direction, the 
     Department of Defense will review our strategic requirements 
     and develop options for further reductions in our current 
     nuclear stockpile, which stands at approximately 5,000 
     warheads, including both deployed and reserve warheads. To 
     develop these options for further reductions, we need to 
     consider several factors, such as potential changes in 
     targeting requirements and alert postures that are required 
     for effective deterrence.''.
       (b) Changes to Strategy.--The President may not make any

     resilience of the strategic forces of the United States and 
     the ability of such forces to support the goals of the United 
     States with respect to nuclear deterrence, extended 
     deterrence, assurance, and defense;
       (B) certification that such proposed changes do not require 
     a change in targeting strategy from counterforce targeting to 
     countervalue targeting; and
       (C) certification that such proposed changes preserve the 
     nuclear force structure triad composed of land-based 
     intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched 
     ballistic missiles, and strategic bomber aircraft; and
       (2) a period of 90 days has elapsed after the date on which 
     such report under paragraph (1) is submitted.

     SEC. 1096. NATIONAL ROCKET PROPULSION STRATEGY.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) The Secretary of Defense has undertaken numerous 
     reviews of the solid rocket motor and

[[Page H3495]]

     liquid rocket engine propulsion industrial base, including 
     pursuant to--
       (A) section 915 of the Ike Skelton National Defense 
     Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (Public Law 111-383; 
     124 Stat. 4329) (relating to the preservation of the solid 
     rocket motor industrial base);
       (B) section 916 of the Ike Skelton National Defense 
     Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (Public Law 111-383; 
     124 Stat. 4330) (relating to the implementation plan to 
     sustain solid rocket motor industrial base);
       (C) section 917 of the Ike Skelton National Defense 
     Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (Public Law 111-383; 
     124 Stat. 4330) (relating to the review and plan on 
     sustainment of liquid rocket propulsion systems industrial 
     base);
       (D) section 1078 of the National Defense Authorization Act 
     for Fiscal Year 2010 (Public Law 111-84; 123 Stat. 2479) 
     (relating to the plan for sustainment of land-based solid 
     rocket motor industrial base); and
       (E) section 1050 of the National Defense Authorization Act 
     for Fiscal Year 2008 (Public Law 110-181; 122 Stat. 318) 
     (relating to the report on solid rocket motor industrial 
     base).
       (2) Multiple departments and agencies of the Federal 
     Government rely on the solid rocket motor and liquid rocket 
     engine propulsion industrial base, including the Department 
     of Defense, the National Reconnaissance Office, and the 
     National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and decisions 
     made by one agency may have severe ramifications on others.
       (3) The planned end in 2011 of the Space Shuttle program 
     and the decision in 2010 by the President to terminate the 
     Constellation program of the National Aeronautics and Space 
     Administration have led to increased costs for rocket 
     propulsion systems for defense and intelligence programs that 
     rely on the rocket propulsion industrial base.
       (4) According to the Air Force, the fiscal year 2012 budget 
     request for the Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle has 
     increased by 50 percent over the fiscal year 2011 request in 
     part due to the uncertainty in the launch industrial and 
     supplier base resulting from decisions by the National 
     Aeronautics and Space Administration.
       (5) According to the Navy, the unit cost for Trident II D5 
     rocket motors has increased 80 percent, in large part as a 
     result of the elimination of investment by the National 
     Aeronautics and Space Administration in solid rocket motors.
       (b) Sense of the Congress.--It is the sense of Congress 
     that the sustainment of the solid rocket motor and liquid 
     rocket engine industrial base is a national challenge that 
     spans multiple departments and agencies of the Federal 
     Government and requires the attention of the President.
       (c) Strategy Required.--The President shall transmit to the 
     appropriate congressional committees a national rocket 
     propulsion strategy for the United States, including--
       (1) a description and assessment of the effects to programs 
     of the Department of Defense and intelligence community that 
     rely on the solid rocket motor and liquid rocket engine 
     industrial base caused by the end of the Space Shuttle 
     program and termination of the Constellation program;
       (2) a description of the plans of the President, the 
     Secretary of Defense, the intelligence community, and the 
     Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space 
     Administration to mitigate the impact of the end of the Space 
     Shuttle program and termination of the Constellation program 
     on the solid rocket motor and liquid rocket engine propulsion 
     industrial base of the United States;
       (3) a consolidated plan that outlines key decision points 
     for the current and next-generation mission requirements of 
     the United States with respect to tactical and strategic 
     missiles, missile defense interceptors, targets, and 
     satellite and human spaceflight launch vehicles;
       (4) options and recommendations for synchronizing plans, 
     programs, and budgets for research and development, 
     procurement, operations, and workforce among the appropriate 
     departments and agencies of the Federal Government to 
     strengthen the solid rocket motor and liquid rocket engine 
     propulsion industrial base of the United States; and
       (5) any other relevant information the President considers 
     necessary.
       (d) Appropriate Congressional Committees Defined.--In this 
     section, the term ``appropriate congressional committees'' 
     means the following:
       (1) The Committees on Armed Services, Science, Space, and 
     Technology, Appropriations, and the Permanent Select 
     Committee on Intelligence of the House of Representatives.
       (2) The Committees on Armed Services, Commerce, Science, 
     and Transportation, Appropriations, and the Select Committee 
     on Intelligence of the Senate.

     qualified individuals, due to the difference between the cost 
     of living at the post of assignment and the cost of living in

     SEC. 1222. REPORT AND CONSULTATION ON ENERGY SECURITY OF NATO 
                   ALLIANCE.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) Adopted in Lisbon in November 2010, the new North 
     Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Strategic Concept 
     declares that ``All countries are increasingly reliant on the 
     vital communication, transport and transit routes on which 
     international trade, energy security and prosperity depend. 
     They require greater international efforts to ensure their 
     resilience against attack or disruption. Some NATO countries 
     will become more dependent on foreign energy suppliers and in 
     some cases, on foreign energy supply and distribution 
     networks for their energy needs. As a larger share of world 
     consumption is transported across the globe, energy supplies 
     are increasingly exposed to disruption.''.
       (2) The new NATO Strategic Concept further declares that, 
     ``to deter and defend against any threat to the safety and 
     security of our populations'', the NATO alliance will, 
     ``develop the capacity to contribute to energy security, 
     including protection of critical energy infrastructure and 
     transit areas and lines, cooperation with partners, and 
     consultations among Allies on the basis of strategic 
     assessments and contingency planning.''.
       (b) Report.--
       (1) Assessment.--The Secretary of Defense shall direct a 
     federally funded research and development center of the 
     Department of Defense to conduct an assessment of the energy 
     security of the NATO alliance.
       (2) Report.--Not later than 270 days after the date of the 
     enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense, in 
     consultation with the Secretary of State, shall submit to the 
     specified congressional committees a detailed report on the 
     assessment conducted pursuant to paragraph (1).
       (3) Contents.--The report required under paragraph (2) 
     shall include the following:
       (A) A listing of the extent to which each NATO member 
     country is dependent on a single oil or natural gas supplier 
     or distribution network. Such listing shall be expressed in 
     terms of a percentage basis.
       (B) A description of potential adverse effects of oil or 
     natural gas price shortages or price spikes on those NATO 
     member countries that are most dependent on a single oil or 
     natural gas supplier or distribution network and on United 
     States Armed Forces based in Europe, including effects on the 
     military and defensive capabilities of such countries.
       (C) A description of potential risks posed to NATO member 
     countries, including NATO member countries in Eastern Europe, 
     and to United States Armed Forces based in Europe, by the 
     relative lack of easy access to the spot market for natural 
     gas.
       (D) A description of the extent to which the United States 
     military, in conjunction with the militaries of NATO member 
     countries, could respond to and mitigate the energy security 
     risk to NATO member countries and to United States Armed 
     Forces based on Europe posed by the threat of a deliberate 
     disruption of the supply of oil or natural gas, and the 
     relative challenges and cost of such a response, including 
     for transporting oil and natural gas over land after delivery 
     by sea to the port of a NATO member country.
       (E) A set of recommendations for available options to NATO 
     member countries that are most dependent on a single oil or 
     natural gas supplier or distribution network to avoid such 
     dependency, and the potential benefits of increased pipelines 
     within Europe to give Eastern European countries access to 
     the spot market for natural gas in the event of a supply 
     interruption.
       (F) A description of all supply interruptions of natural 
     gas to NATO member countries over the past 20 years.
       (G) An analysis of the threats posed by supply 
     interruptions, whether accidental, unauthorized or 
     deliberate, to energy distribution infrastructure and transit 
     areas and lines to NATO member countries most dependent on a 
     single oil or natural gas supplier or distribution network 
     and to United States Armed Forces based in Europe, including 
     from events such as potential natural disasters or terrorist 
     attacks, and the adequacy of the Department of Defense's 
     current contingency plans to respond to such interruptions.
       (H) A description of how NATO's military capability might 
     be adversely affected if a major oil or natural gas supplier 
     or distribution network were to deliberately disrupt the 
     supply of oil or natural gas.
       (I) An analysis of whether and how major suppliers of oil 
     and natural gas to NATO member countries in Europe have used 
     their energy markets to influence European political affairs,

     SEC. 1229. INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS RELATING TO MISSILE 
                   DEFENSE.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) Prior to signing the New START Treaty, on April 7, 
     2010, the Russian Federation made the unilateral statement 
     that ``the Treaty can operate and be viable only if the 
     United States of America refrains from developing its missile 
     defense capabilities quantitatively or qualitatively.''.
       (2) In the understanding under subsection (b)(1)(A) of the 
     Resolution of Advice and Consent to Ratification of the New 
     START Treaty, the Senate declared that ``the New START Treaty 
     does not impose any limitations on the deployment of missile 
     defenses other than the requirements of paragraph 3 of 
     Article V of the New START Treaty. . .''.
       (3) In the understanding under subsection (b)(1)(B) of such 
     resolution, the Senate further declared that ``any additional 
     New START Treaty limitations on the deployment of missile 
     defenses beyond those contained in paragraph 3 of Article V, 
     including any limitations agreed under the auspices of the 
     Bilateral Consultative Commission, would require an amendment 
     to the New START Treaty which may enter into force for the 
     United States only with the advice and consent of the Senate, 
     as set forth in Article II, section 2, clause 2 of the 
     Constitution of the United States.''.

[[Page H3502]]

       (4) In the understanding under subsection (b)(1)(C) of such 
     resolution, the Senate further declared that ``the April 7, 
     2010, unilateral statement by the Russian Federation on 
     missile defense does not impose a legal obligation on the 
     United States.''.
       (5) In the declaration under subsection (c)(2)(F) of such 
     resolution, the Senate further declared that ``the United 
     States is committed to improving United States strategic 
     defensive capabilities both quantitatively and qualitatively 
     during the period that the New START Treaty is in effect, and 
     such improvements are consistent with the Treaty.''.
       (b) Policy.--In light of the findings under subsection (a), 
     it is the policy of the United States--
       (1) that any further limitations on the missile defense 
     capabilities of the United States are not in the national 
     security interests of the United States;
       (2) to improve the strategic defensive capabilities of the 
     United States both quantitatively and qualitatively during 
     the period that the New START treaty is in effect and such 
     improvements are consistent with the Treaty; and
       (3) that no future agreement with Russia on cooperative 
     missile defense, non-strategic nuclear weapons, further 
     strategic weapons reductions, or any other matter shall 
     include any restrictions on the missile defense options of 
     the United States in Europe or elsewhere.
       (c) Limitations on Missile Defense.--
       (1) In general.--Chapter 3 of title 10, United States Code,

     Consent to Ratification of the New START Treaty of the 
     Senate, any agreement with a country or international 
     organization or amendment to the New START Treaty (including 
     an agreement made by the Bilateral Consultative Commission 
     established by the New START Treaty) concerning the 
     limitation of the missile defense capabilities of the United 
     States shall not be binding on the United States, and shall 
     not enter into force with respect to the United States, 
     unless after the date of the enactment of this section, such 
     agreement or amendment is--
       ``(1) specifically approved with the advice and consent of 
     the Senate pursuant to Article II, section 2, clause 2 of the 
     Constitution; or
       ``(2) specifically authorized by an Act of Congress.
       ``(b) Annual Notification.--Not later than January 31 of 
     each year, beginning in 2012, the President shall submit to 
     the congressional defense committees and the Committee on 
     Foreign Relations of the Senate and the Committee on Foreign 
     Affairs of the House of Representatives a notification of--
       ``(1) whether the Russian Federation has recognized during 
     the previous year the sovereign right of the United States to 
     pursue quantitative and qualitative improvements in missile 
     defense capabilities; and
       ``(2) whether during any treaty negotiations or other 
     Government-to-Government contacts between the United States 
     and the Russian Federation (including under the auspices of 
     the Bilateral Consultative Commission established by the New 
     START Treaty) during the previous year a representative of 
     the Russian Federation suggested that a treaty or other 
     international agreement include, with respect to the United 
     States--
       ``(A) restricting missile defense capabilities, military 
     capabilities in space, or conventional prompt global strike 
     capabilities; or
       ``(B) reducing the number of non-strategic nuclear weapons 
     deployed in Europe.
       ``(c) New START Treaty Defined.--In this section, the term 
     `New START Treaty' means the Treaty between the United States 
     of America and the Russian Federation on Measures for the 
     Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms,

       (2) that non-strategic nuclear weapons should be considered 
     when weighing the balance of the nuclear forces of the United 
     States and Russia; and
       (3) that any geographical relocation or storage of non-
     strategic nuclear weapons by Russia does not constitute a 
     reduction or elimination of such weapons.
       (b) Policy on Extended Deterrence Commitment to Europe.--It 
     is the policy of the United States that--
       (1) it maintain its commitment to extended deterrence, 
     specifically the nuclear alliance of the North Atlantic 
     Treaty Organization, as an important component of ensuring 
     and linking the national security interests of the United 
     States and the security of its European allies;
       (2) forward-deployed nuclear forces of the United States 
     shall remain based in Europe in support of the NATO nuclear 
     alliance; and
       (3) the presence of nuclear weapons of the United States in 
     Europe--combined with NATO's unique nuclear sharing 
     arrangements under which non-nuclear members participate in 
     nuclear planning and possess specially configured aircraft 
     capable of delivering nuclear weapons--contributes to the 
     cohesion of NATO and provides reassurance to allies and 
     partners who feel exposed to regional threats.
       (c) Limitation on Reduction, Consolidation, or Withdrawal 
     of Nuclear Forces Based in Europe.--In light of the policy 
     expressed in subsections (a) and (b), no action may be taken

     nation in the manner provided in the agreement between the 
     United States and the host nation regarding the forces; or
       (2) the President certifies that--

     consolidation, or withdrawal in the High Level Group;
       (B) NATO has decided to support such reduction, 
     consolidation, or withdrawal; and
       (C) the remaining nuclear forces of the United States that 
     are based in Europe after such reduction, consolidation, or 
     withdrawal would provide a commensurate or better level of 
     assurance and credibility as before such reduction, 
     consolidation, or withdrawal.
       (d) Notification.--Upon any decision to reduce, 
     consolidate, or withdraw the nuclear forces of the United 
     States that are based in Europe, the President shall submit 
     to the appropriate congressional committees a notification 
     containing--

       (2) justification for such reduction, consolidation, or 
     withdrawal; and
       (3) an assessment of how NATO member states, in light of 
     such reduction, consolidation, or withdrawal, assess the 
     credibility of the deterrence capability of the United States 
     in support of its commitments undertaken pursuant to article
