       (a) Short Title.--This section may be cited as the 
     ``Bulletproof Vest Partnership Grant Program Reauthorization 
     Act of 2013''.
       (b) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       (1) according to a report published by the Government 
     Accountability Office--
       (A) since 1987, body armor has saved the lives of more than 
     3,000 law enforcement officers, and continues to serve as a 
     critical safety measure for law enforcement officers; and
       (B) law enforcement officers who do not wear body armor are 
     3.4 times more likely to sustain a fatal injury from a 
     gunshot to the torso than officers who do;
       (2) during the tragic shooting at the Washington Navy Yard 
     Naval Sea Systems Command on September 16, 2013, a 
     Washington, D.C. law enforcement officer was shot twice in 
     the torso and was saved by his protective vest;
       (3) in 2012, protective vests were directly responsible for 
     saving the lives of at least 33 law enforcement officers;
       (4) body armor is an effective tool in helping to protect 
     law enforcement officers; and
       (5) since 1999, the Bulletproof Vest Partnership has helped 
     State and local law enforcement agencies purchase more than 
     1,000,000 protective vests.
       (c) Extension of Authorization of Appropriations for 
     Bulletproof Vest Partnership Grant Program.--Section 
     1001(a)(23) of title I of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe

     out part Y of title I of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe 
     Streets Act of 1968 (42 U.S.C. 3796ll et seq.) should be made 
     available through the end of the first fiscal year following

     of grants made under part Y;

     SEC. 3502. REPORT ON THE READY RESERVE FORCE OF THE MARITIME 
                   ADMINISTRATION.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) It is in the interest of United States national 
     security that the United States merchant marine, both ships 
     and mariners, serve as a naval auxiliary in times of war or 
     national emergency.
       (2) It is important to augment the readiness of the United 
     States merchant fleet with a Government-owned reserve fleet 
     comprised of ships with national defense features that may 
     not be available immediately in sufficient numbers or types 
     in the active United States-owned, United States-flagged, and 
     United States-crewed commercial industry.
       (3) The Ready Reserve Force of the Maritime Administration, 
     a component of the National Defense Reserve Fleet, plays an 
     important role in United States national security by 
     providing necessary readiness and efficiency in the form of a 
     Government-owned sealift fleet.
       (4) A successful dual-use vessel program could provide--
       (A) private sector benefits for the domestic shipbuilding 
     and maritime freight industries; and
       (B) an opportunity to outfit vessels with natural gas 
     engines, lowering long-term fuel costs and emissions.
       (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (1) the United States should maintain a shipbuilding base 
     to meet United States national security requirements;
       (2) the Ready Reserve Force of the Maritime Administration 
     should remain capable, modern, and efficient in order to best 
     serve the national security needs of the United States in 
     times of war or national emergency;
       (3) Federal agencies should consider investment options for 
     replacing aging vessels within the Ready Reserve Force to 
     meet future operational commitments; and
       (4) investment in recapitalizing the Ready Reserve Force 
     should include--
       (A) construction of dual-use vessels, based on need, for 
     use in the America's Marine Highway Program of the Department 
     of Transportation, as a recent study performed under a 
     cooperative agreement between the Maritime Administration and 
     the Navy demonstrated that dual-use vessels transporting 
     domestic freight between United States ports could be called 
     upon to supplement sealift capacity;
       (B) construction of tanker vessels to meet military 
     transport needs; and
       (C) construction of vessels for use in transporting 
     potential new energy exports.
       (c) Report.--Not later than 180 days after the date of the 
     enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Transportation and 
     the Secretary of the Navy, jointly, shall submit to the 
     congressional defense committees and the Committee on 
     Commerce, Science, and Transportation of the Senate a report 
     on the cost-effectiveness of the recapitalizing methods for 
     the Ready Reserve Force described under subsection (b)(4) 
     that includes an assessment of the risks involved with 
     Federal financing of dual-use vessels.

                       Subtitle E--Other Matters

     SEC. 3141. MANHATTAN PROJECT NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       (1) the Manhattan Project was an unprecedented top-secret 
     program implemented during World War II to produce an atomic 
     bomb before Nazi Germany;
       (2) a panel of experts convened by the President's Advisory 
     Council on Historic Preservation in 2001--
       (A) stated that ``the development and use of the atomic 
     bomb during World War II has been called `the single most 
     significant event of the 20th century' ''; and
       (B) recommended that nationally significant sites 
     associated with the Manhattan Project be formally established 
     as a collective unit and be administered for preservation, 
     commemoration, and public interpretation in cooperation with 
     the National Park Service;
       (3) the Manhattan Project National Historical Park Study 
     Act (Public Law 108-340; 118 Stat. 1362) directed the 
     Secretary of the Interior, in consultation with the Secretary 
     of Energy, to conduct a special resource study of the 
     historically significant sites associated with the Manhattan 
     Project to assess the national significance, suitability, and 
     feasibility of designating 1 or more sites as a unit of the 
     National Park System;
       (4) after significant public input, the National Park 
     Service study found that ``including Manhattan Project-
     related sites in the national park system will expand and 
     enhance the protection and preservation of such resources and 
     provide for comprehensive interpretation and public 
     understanding of this nationally significant story in the 
     20th century American history'';
       (5) the Department of the Interior, with the concurrence of 
     the Department of Energy, recommended the establishment of a 
     Manhattan Project National Historical Park comprised of 
     resources at--
       (A) Oak Ridge, Tennessee;
       (B) Los Alamos, New Mexico; and
       (C) Hanford, in the Tri-Cities area, Washington;
       (6) designation of a Manhattan Project National Historical 
     Park as a unit of the National Park System would improve the 
     preservation of, interpretation of, and access to the 
     nationally significant historic resources associated with the 
     Manhattan Project for present and future generations to gain 
     a better understanding of the Manhattan Project, including 
     the significant, far-reaching, and complex legacy of the 
     Manhattan Project; and
       (7) the permanent historical preservation of the B Reactor 
     at Hanford as part of the Manhattan National Historical Park 
     would provide significant savings to the Federal Government 
     relative to placing the reactor into interim safe storage and 
     subsequently dismantling the reactor--
       (A) as determined as part of the Record of Decision 
     entitled ``Decommissioning of Eight Surplus Production 3 
     Reactors at the Hanford Site, Richland, WA''; and
       (B) as included within milestone M-093-00 of the Hanford 
     Federal Facility Agreement and Consent Order.
       (b) Purposes.--The purposes of this section are--
       (1) to preserve and protect for the benefit and education 
     of present and future generations the nationally significant 
     historic resources associated with the Manhattan Project;
       (2) to improve public understanding of the Manhattan 
     Project and the legacy of the Manhattan Project through 
     interpretation of the historic resources associated with the 
     Manhattan Project;
       (3) to enhance public access to the Historical Park, 
     consistent with protection of public safety, national 
     security, and other aspects of the mission of the Department 
     of Energy; and
       (4) to assist the Department of Energy, Historical Park 
     communities, historical societies, and other interested 
     organizations and individuals in efforts to preserve and 
     protect the historically significant resources associated 
     with the Manhattan Project.

          Subtitle C--National Rare Earth Refinery Cooperative

     SEC. 1431. SHORT TITLE.

       This subtitle may be cited as the ``National Rare Earth 
     Cooperative Act of 2013''.

     SEC. 1432. FINDINGS; STATEMENT OF POLICY.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) Heavy rare earth elements are critical for the national 
     defense of the United States, advanced energy technologies, 
     and other desirable commercial and industrial applications.
       (2) The Government Accountability Office has confirmed that 
     the monopoly control of the People's Republic of China over 
     the rare earth value chain has resulted in vulnerabilities in 
     the procurement of multiple United States weapons systems.
       (3) China has leveraged its monopoly control over the rare 
     earth value chain to force United States, European, Japanese, 
     and Korean corporations to transfer manufacturing facilities, 
     technology, and jobs to China in exchange for secure supply 
     contracts.
       (4) China's increasingly aggressive mercantile behavior has 
     resulted in involuntary transfers of technology, 
     manufacturing, and jobs resulting in onerous trade imbalances 
     with the United States and trading partners of the United 
     States.
       (5) Direct links exist between heavy rare earth mineralogy 
     and thorium.
       (6) Thorium is a mildly radioactive element commonly 
     associated with the lanthanide elements in the most heavy 
     rare earth deposits that are located in the United States and 
     elsewhere.
       (7) Regulations regarding thorium represent a barrier to 
     the development of a heavy rare earth industry that is based 
     in the United States.
       (8) Balancing the strategic national interest objectives of 
     the United States against economic and environmental risks 
     are best met through the creation of a rare earth 
     cooperative.
       (9) A rare earth cooperative could--
       (A) greatly increase rare earth production;
       (B) ensure environmental safety; and
       (C) lower the cost of the production and financial risks 
     faced by rare earth producers in the United States.
       (10) Historically, agricultural and electric cooperatives 
     have stood as one of the greatest success stories of the 
     United States.
       (b) Statement of Policy.--It is the policy of the United 
     States to advance domestic refining of heavy rare earth 
     materials and the safe storage of thorium in anticipation of 
     the potential future industrial uses of thorium, including 
     energy, as--
       (1) thorium has a mineralogical association with valuable 
     heavy rare earth elements;
       (2) there is a great need to develop domestic refining 
     capacity to process domestic heavy rare earth deposits; and
       (3) the economy of the United States would benefit from the 
     rapid development and control of intellectual property 
     relating to the commercial development of technology 
     utilizing thorium.

                   STRATEGY IN AFGHANISTAN.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) According to the Special Inspector General for 
     Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), as of September 30, 2013, 
     the United States had appropriated approximately 
     $96,600,000,000 for relief and reconstruction assistance in 
     Afghanistan since 2002. The SIGAR report actually finds, 
     ``Since 2002, the United States has appropriated over $96 
     billion for reconstruction assistance in Afghanistan and, as 
     part of that assistance, has designated numerous programs or 
     activities to directly or indirectly help strengthen the 
     ability of Afghan government institutions to combat 
     corruption.'' It also finds, ``U.S. anti-corruption 
     activities in Afghanistan are not guided by a comprehensive 
     U.S. strategy or related guidance that defines clear goals 
     and objectives for U.S. efforts to strengthen the Afghan 
     government's capability to combat corruption and increase 
     accountability.''
       (2) To improve the capability to achieve a long-term 
     secure, stable, and successful Afghanistan, the Government of 
     Afghanistan, in coordination with the Department of State and 
     the Department of Defense, must improve its capacity to 
     combat corruption.
       (b) Comprehensive Strategy and Plan.--
       (1) In general.--Not later than 180 days after the date of 
     the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State, in 
     coordination with the Secretary of Defense and in 
     consultation with the Government of Afghanistan, shall submit 
     to the appropriate congressional committees a report on anti-
     corruption activities and plans in Afghanistan.
       (2) Elements.--The report required under paragraph (1) 
     shall include--
       (A) an assessment of the sectors of the Government of 
     Afghanistan that are most susceptible to corruption;
       (B) a description of the goals and measurable outcomes for 
     reducing corruption in the most vulnerable sectors of the 
     government identified in subparagraph (A);

[[Page S8507]]

       (C) plan for the implementation of the anti-corruption 
     goals that identifies objectives, benchmarks, and timelines; 
     and
       (D) a resourcing plan that includes personnel and funding 
     requirements.
       (c) Appropriate Congressional Committees Defined.--In this 
     section, the term ``appropriate congressional committees'' 
     means--
       (1) the congressional defense committees; and
       (2) the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate and

                   NETWORK ACTIVITIES AND FINANCES.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) The Haqqani Network is a primary partner for the 
     Taliban, al Qaeda, regional militants, and other global 
     Islamic jihadists committing acts of violence, as well as 
     political and economic oppression in Afghanistan and 
     Pakistan.
       (2) The Haqqani Network continues to be a strategic threat 
     to the safety, security, and stability of Afghanistan, as

     significant number of United States casualties and injuries 
     on the battlefield in Afghanistan.
