                 Honoring Stewardship Responsibilities

    The primary responsibility of the Subcommittee on Interior, 
Environment and Related Agencies is to provide adequate 
resources to meet Federal stewardship obligations and to help 
protect the environment. These obligations span a wide range of 
needs. Among them are fulfilling our moral and treaty 
obligations to Native American communities, protecting the 
natural and historic heritage of the country, and preserving 
the biodiversity of the flora and fauna of the American 
landscape. These duties also include providing the resources to 
ensure that our air and water are clean and safe, and that the 
energy and other natural resources on public lands entrusted to 
the American people are utilized to meet their needs in an 
environmentally responsible way. Fortunately, the funding 
proposed by the President recognizes the importance of these 
responsibilities. The 2010 request was more than $6.5 billion 
above the prior year request. The majority of this increase 
went to clean and safe drinking water infrastructure, 
restoration of the Great Lakes, climate change, wildfire 
suppression and Native American health and law enforcement. The 
Committee recommendation sustains most of these long overdue 
increases.
    These significant increases are in addition to the funds 
provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act 
(ARRA) of 2009. For the agencies and programs funded through 
this bill, that Act included $10.95 billion, which represented 
a significant boost for many programs above the amount 
appropriated annually. ARRA included $6 billion for the Clean 
Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds (SRF), which 
provide investment for more than 2,300 infrastructure projects 
nationwide. The ARRA also included more than $2 billion for the 
Department of the Interior, most of which funded long delayed 
construction projects and deferred maintenance. The Forest 
Service received over $1.1 billion for infrastructure and 
wildfire prevention, to help reduce the deferred maintenance 
backlog and the impacts of future wildfires.
    A summary of the significant issues addressed by the 
Committee in this bill and accompanying report follows.

                        NATIVE AMERICAN PROGRAMS

    In past years, the Committee has restored cuts and provided 
significant increases to programs that directly impact the 
health, safety and well-being of American Indians and Alaska 
Natives. This year, the Committee is pleased that the 
Administration has provided historic increases to these 
programs, particularly to the Indian Health Service. The 
President's fiscal year 2010 budget requests more than $600 
million in increases for the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the 
Indian Health Service, which the Committee has supported.
    The Committee remains concerned about the cultural, social 
and health-related impacts in Indian Country from domestic 
violence and substance abuse. Numerous Tribal leaders have 
testified before the Committee illustrating the problems in 
these areas and delineating the underlying problem of the lack 
of sufficient law enforcement to target these crimes. The 
Committee held an oversight hearing to discuss specific law 
enforcement needs and jurisdictional challenges that diminish 
Tribes' abilities to enforce laws and prosecute crimes.
    While the President's budget includes funds for these 
services, the Committee has provided additional resources to 
the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Indian Health Service to 
protect Native Americans and to assist and treat victims of 
crime and addiction. Within the BIA, the Committee has provided 
the requested increases for public safety and justice, as well 
as direction on methods to improve law enforcement and justice 
processes and increased collaboration with the Department of 
Justice. Additional direction on this issue is included in the 
report accompanying the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act for 2010. The Committee has also 
provided an increase to the domestic violence and sexual 
assault prevention initiative within the Indian Health Service. 
This will enable the IHS to expand its existing programs and 
provide victim assistance in more communities.
    The Committee is concerned that the various Federal funding 
sources and grant programs for Native American programs are not 
well coordinated. For example, in the area of Tribal law 
enforcement, there are numerous competitive grant programs and 
direct funding sources which create a patchwork of funding 
opportunities that Tribes must navigate. The result is an ad 
hoc system where a particular Tribe might receive a grant to 
build a detention center but no funds to staff the facility. 
The Tribes might receive funds to purchase police vehicles but 
no funding to maintain them. There are similar examples of this 
issue in health care, housing, education, and other areas.
    The Committee encourages the Secretary of the Interior and 
the Secretary of Health and Human Services to work with other 
Federal Departments and agencies to streamline and coordinate 
grant programs and funding opportunities for Native American 
programs.

          Protection and Restoration of Our Great Water Bodies

    The United States has made significant strides in 
addressing water pollution. Our rivers no longer burn. More 
than 290 million Americans rely on the safety of tap water 
provided by public water systems that are subject to national 
drinking water standards. In fiscal year 2008, 92 percent of 
the U.S. population was served by community water systems with 
drinking water that met all applicable health-based drinking 
water standards. We swim and fish in rivers and lakes cleaner 
than those used by recent generations. But the task before us 
is still great. The reports from the Environmental Protection 
Agency are sobering.
    Up to 30 percent of streams have high levels of nitrogen, 
phosphorus, and excess sedimentation. More than 50 percent of 
the nation's lakes have fish exceeding the health-based tissue 
concentrations for mercury. Of particular concern to the 
Committee is the pressure placed on our critical coastal 
resources, which provide ecological, economic, cultural and 
aesthetic benefits and services. To begin to address this 
concern, the Committee has continued to fund an initiative 
begun two fiscal years ago to protect our great water bodies 
along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and around the Great 
Lakes.
    In this bill, the Committee has provided more than 
$660,000,000 to protect specific geographic bodies of water, 
including the request of $475,000,000 to restore the Great 
Lakes. The Committee includes these funds because our coastal 
areas are the most developed areas in the United States. This 
narrow fringe of land--only 17 percent of the total 
conterminous U.S. land area--is home to more than 53 percent of 
the nation's population. Between 1980 and 2003, the coastal 
population increased by 33 million people, causing increased 
density and pressure on coastal resources. Pollution in these 
water bodies threatens our environment, public health and the 
economy. For instance, the Gulf of Mexico, whose coastal areas 
contain half the wetlands in the U.S., accounted for over 40 
percent of all U.S. marine recreational fishing catch in 2006. 
But more than 30 years after the passage of the Clean Water 
Act, in 2008 the Gulf hypoxic zone was the second largest on 
record--larger than the State of Massachusetts.
    The Chesapeake Bay watershed, which covers 64,000 square 
miles, is growing in population by 170,000 people each year. 
Agriculture, wastewater treatment plants, and development are 
enormous threats to this ecosystem, which provides more than 
one-third of the nation's blue crab catch. The Great Lakes, 
whose watershed covers over 200,000 square miles, represent the 
largest freshwater system on earth, containing 84 percent of 
North America's fresh water. But the threats here are great, as 
runoff, waste from cities, and discharge from industrial sites 
are retained in these water bodies which have small outflow 
rates. Progress is complicated by the need to coordinate more 
than 140 different federal programs across two countries. In 
addition, between 2000 and 2020 the Puget Sound region will 
increase by 1.7 million people, putting more and more pressure 
on the hatcheries that have produced Pacific salmon for nearly 
130 years and increasing the stormwater problem that is already 
very serious.
    For these reasons, the Committee recommendation provides 
the largest increase ever to support continued efforts, in the 
face of growing pressures, to protect and restore our treasured 
``Great Water Bodies.'' The bill includes $475,000,000 for the 
Great Lakes, including funds to implement the Great Lakes 
Legacy Act; $28,000,000 for the National Estuaries Grant 
Program, which will provide $1,000,000 for each of the 28 
National Estuaries named in law; and, $148,000,000 to protect 
and restore numerous water bodies from Long Island Sound to 
Puget Sound, from Lake Champlain to Lake Pontchartrain.
    In addition to these programs which directly benefit 
specific water bodies, the Committee has provided $3.9 billion 
for clean and safe drinking water infrastructure, an increase 
of $2.2 billion above the 2009 enacted level. These funds, 
which will provide more than 1,470 low interest loans to 
communities across America, will build projects to help 
American communities ensure that the water they use to fish, 
swim and drink is clean and safe. The bill language allows the 
state SRFs to use subsidies, such as negative interest loans, 
principal forgiveness or grants, in order to ensure that many 
rural, small and/or disadvantaged communities have access to 
the funds provided through this bill. In a few short months, 
through the 2009 Appropriations Act, the American Recovery and 
Reinvestment Act and the amounts recommended in this bill, this 
Committee has made the largest annual investment in clean water 
in recent American history.

              GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE SCIENCE AND ADAPTATION

    The Committee and the Administration have invested 
significant resources to enhance the body of scientific 
knowledge of climate change and understand what steps agencies, 
land managers, and the Nation should take to begin adapting to 
a changing world. The Committee bill builds on efforts 
established in previous years, and on the substantial body of 
work done by scientists and managers supported by this Act. The 
Committee is encouraged by the steps the Administration is 
taking as reflected by their budget requests, especially at the 
Department of the Interior and the Environmental Protection 
Agency. The Committee also understands that it is essential to 
invest in fundamental and applied science and those 
applications that help prepare for changes to our natural and 
human-built environments. Accordingly, this bill focuses on 
support to science, especially at the U.S. Geological Survey, 
the Environmental Protection Agency, the Smithsonian 
Institution and the Forest Service research branch. Significant 
funding is also included for applied science and adaptation at 
the EPA, the Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, 
Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management. The Committee 
feels strongly that the Administration and the Congress must be 
accountable for real coordination and clear planning.
    A General Provision, Section 424, has been included to 
require the President to submit a report to the Appropriations 
Committees no later than 120 days after the fiscal year 2011 
budget is submitted describing in detail Federal obligations 
and ependitures for climate change programs and activities in 
fiscal years 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Environmental protection

    The Committee continues to support EPA's many efforts to 
address climate change. Funding for its voluntary climate 
change programs, such as Energy Star and SmartWay, are 
continued through this bill. This Committee has long supported, 
and often increased above the request, the Agency's Clean 
Automotive Technology Program, which develops cost-effective 
advanced clean and low greenhouse gas emitting engines and 
hybrid technologies. It was this Committee which first directed 
the Agency to develop the Greenhouse Gas Registry, which will 
result in the collection of accurate and comprehensive 
emissions data to better inform public policy. Last year in 
response to a request that ignored the Agency's 
responsibilities under the Energy Independence and Security 
Act, the Committee provided the funds needed for the Agency to 
begin the renewable fuels regulations. Initiated by this 
Committee in fiscal year 2009, grants now are available to 
local governments to develop and implement their own climate 
change initiatives. This bill supports and enhances all of 
these programs and also provides the increases needed for EPA 
to better manage these programs.

Public lands and wildlife conservation

    Last year the Committee directed the Secretary of the 
Interior, with the assistance of the USGS National Climate 
Change and Wildlife Science Center and a science advisory 
board, to initiate development of a national strategy to assist 
fish, wildlife, plants, and associated ecological processes in 
becoming more resilient, adapting to, and surviving the impacts 
of climate change. The Committee is encouraged by early steps 
the Administration is taking, but it is imperative that efforts 
move forward in a coordinated and strategic fashion among all 
parties. It is essential that this effort include appropriate 
parties throughout the Federal government and that it include 
consultation with State agencies, Territories, Tribes, 
scientists, and stakeholders, and include notice to the public 
and opportunity for comment.
    The Committee is particularly concerned that funding has 
been requested by a number of agencies for large-scale planning 
efforts in response to climate change. As the Departments of 
Agriculture and Interior proceed in developing a climate change 
strategy and delineating regional or landscape boundaries for 
fish and wildlife conservation, they must ensure that there is 
integration, coordination, and public accountability to ensure 
efficiency and avoid duplication. These efforts must be 
coordinated with State and Tribal natural resource conservation 
agencies and the State Wildlife Action Plans and integrated 
with existing conservation programs such as joint ventures, 
habitat conservation plans, forest plans, and other 
conservation efforts. The Committee looks forward to receiving 
a timeline and a blueprint for the completion of the ongoing 
national strategic planning effort, as well as regular updates 
as progress is made.
    The Committee is also very concerned that the request, 
particularly for the Department of the Interior, included many 
new offices and organizational structures for agencies to 
respond to climate change. Contrary to the request to expand 
offices and organizational structure, implementation of 
landscape scale planning in response to climate change offers 
an opportunity to consolidate science, management and support 
service offices. The Committee directs the Department to 
provide recommendations for implementing regional-landscape 
approaches and consolidating support services within 180 days 
of enactment of this Act. Information on the initial 
investments needed to achieve these goals, the impacts on 
organizations, personnel and potential cost efficiencies should 
be included in this report.

                        WILDLAND FIRE MANAGEMENT

    The recent increases in the length and severity of wildfire 
seasons have been accompanied by exponential increases in the 
cost of wildland fire suppression. The Committee has invested 
considerable time and resources on the issue of wildland fire 
management in the United States which was the focus of multiple 
hearings for fiscal year 2010. Expert testimony clearly 
indicates that weather conditions are more severe, wildfire 
behavior is more intense, and even the most advanced methods of 
fire suppression sometimes have little ability to slow or stop 
fire spread. A decade ago there were rarely more than 5 million 
acres burned in a year, and total suppression costs averaged 
$200 million. In recent fire seasons 6 to 8 million acres burn 
a year with Federal suppression costs over $2 billion in a 
single year.
    These extreme costs are driven by a few mega-fires, which 
utilize enormous amounts of personnel, aircraft, and equipment. 
Drought conditions, low fuel moistures, and/or high winds allow 
these fires to continue to grow, exhibiting extreme fire 
behavior for weeks at a time. Before the 1990's, it was unheard 
of to spend more than $10 million to fight a single fire. Now, 
in a single year, 30 to 40 individual events of that magnitude 
occur. The Committee understands that adequate emergency 
funding for wildfire suppression is important, but it is even 
more important to spend funds wisely on activities which can 
protect communities and natural resources from the impacts of 
extreme fires.
    The Committee has directed large funding increases for 
wildfire suppression and for activities that are known to 
reduce wildfire danger. The Committee believes, based on expert 
testimony and scientific analyses, that strategic fuel 
reduction, such as thinning and prescribed fire, will reduce 
the opportunities for extreme fire behavior and increase 
opportunities for successful fire suppression. Communities 
across the nation have implemented, and many more are working 
on, Community Wildfire Protection Plans designed to protect 
features local citizens deem worthy, such as infrastructure, 
housing, municipal watersheds, and wildlife habitat. The State 
Assessment and Resource Strategy plans required under the 2008 
Farm Bill will provide comprehensive analysis of the forest-
related conditions, trends, threats, and opportunities within 
each State.
    The bill provides a total of $3.66 billion for all the 
wildland fire management accounts and the new suppression 
contingency accounts within the Forest Service and the 
Department of the Interior. The total funding for all wildfire 
suppression accounts is $1,855,302,000, a 40 percent increase 
over the fiscal year 2009 funding level. This includes 
$357,000,000 for the new wildfire suppression contingency 
reserve accounts requested by the Administration. The bill 
provides $1,804,766,000 for the non-suppression accounts, 
including $983,452,000 for preparedness and $611,175,000 for 
hazardous fuels reduction. This latter value is $80,036,000 
above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $90,801,000 above 
the request, a 17.5 percent increase over the request. The bill 
also increases State fire assistance by $37,000,000 to a total 
of $80,000,000 within the wildland fire account, which will 
greatly enhance the Federal/State wildfire partnership. These 
large investments, coupled with the $500,000,000 provided in 
the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for similar 
activities, will help to reduce the extent of future wildfires 
and potential damage to communities and the environment.

                            LAND ACQUISITION

    The Committee believes that land acquisition is a vital 
tool in conserving wildlife and habitat, providing cultural, 
historic and recreationally valuable areas, producing vital 
commodities such as timber, oil, gas, and minerals, and 
preserving open space for future generations. The Committee 
also believes that third-party involvement in land acquisition 
from local, regional, and national land trusts has been 
critical in preserving these lands for future generations and 
maintaining resilient natural systems in light of climate 
change. The Committee does, however, have concerns about the 
current processes in place for Federal land acquisition and has 
outlined these concerns below.
    National Land Acquisition Strategies and Priority 
Setting.--The Committee is concerned that the agencies are not 
following, and in some cases do not have a national strategy or 
strategic goals for land acquisition to guide their efforts. 
Further, given the reality of climate change and the need to 
adapt and mitigate its effects, the potential for changing 
habitats, coastal inundation, and shifts in species ranges 
should be important factors in acquiring lands in the future.
    The Committee directs the Federal land management agencies 
in the Department of the Interior and the Department of 
Agriculture to define national strategies and goals for 
acquiring land and how current and future acquisitions 
compliment these goals and the mission of each agency. This 
should include the current processes and systems for nominating 
and setting priorities at the State, regional and national 
level and how these priorities contribute to national goals and 
the underlying mission of each agency. The agencies should 
integrate the acquisition strategies into their ongoing efforts 
to implement landscape-level conservation and climate change 
adaptation and mitigation. The Departments should report to the 
Committee on progress in developing land acquisition strategies 
within 120 days of enactment of this Act.
    The Committee is concerned that the Forest Service's budget 
request did not compliment the Department of the Interior's 
request and did not reflect a unified policy and interest in 
Federal land acquisition. In fact, the Federal land acquisition 
activity was reduced by almost half, and the request provided 
no funding for inholdings and wilderness protection. The 
Committee feels strongly that if the Administration proposes 
initiatives and policy changes for the Nation's Federal public 
lands, the Forest Service must be included in these 
initiatives.
    Inholdings.--The Committee is aware that there is an 
increasing threat of development of parcels within the 
boundaries of our public lands, national wildlife refuges, 
national parks and national forests. The Committee directs the 
agencies to use inholdings funding to acquire high priority 
lands that are immediately threatened by development and are 
partially or entirely bordered by land currently owned by the 
Federal government. The agencies should report to the 
Committees on the lands acquired by these funds as part of 
their annual budget submissions.
    Land Acquisition Appraisals.--Consistent with the 
recommendations of GAO and the OIG at the time, in 2003 the 
Secretary of the Interior consolidated the appraisal functions 
of the three Departmental land management agencies. Both GAO 
and the OIG have since documented that this improved the 
objectivity and quality of appraisals. Nevertheless, numerous 
problems exist that are an unacceptable barrier to 
communications, collaboration, and acquisition of lands for 
protection of our public lands, national wildlife refuges and 
national parks. Among the issues that appear to be causing this 
are loss of realty expertise in the bureaus, undue delays in 
the contracting of appraisals, and hesitancy to share 
information on the status of the appraisals with landowners. 
These issues have resulted in lost opportunities of key 
acquisitions, strained partnerships with non-profit land 
organizations, and reduced public faith in the federal 
government's commitment to land protection. The Committee 
directs the Department to revisit the appraisal services 
consolidation, to reconsider alternative organizational 
proposals, and to streamline the process so that appraisals, 
and ultimately, acquisitions, are completed in a timely manner 
while following all applicable guidelines and regulations. The 
Committee directs the Department to report back to the 
Committee no later than 90 days after enactment of this Act on 
its progress in improving the appraisal process.
    Land Exchanges.--The Committee is concerned that the land 
exchange process among the Federal land management agencies, 
particularly in the Bureau of Land Management and the Forest 
Service needs improvement. A forthcoming Government 
Accountability Office report (GAO-09-611) following up on 
problems identified in the past audits of the land exchange 
programs contains a number of significant findings and 
recommendations that the agencies should seriously consider. 
The Committee directs the Secretary of the Interior and the 
Secretary of Agriculture to ensure that decisions regarding 
land exchanges are fully documented and carefully reviewed by 
national, or in the case of Forest Service, regional review 
teams with adequate oversight from agency headquarters 
officials. Further, the agencies should clearly define third-
party facilitators and consistently apply disclosure policies 
to them. The agencies should ensure that land exchange staffs 
are adequately trained before handling exchanges and should 
track the costs of processing individual land exchanges. The 
agencies should address GAO's other recommendations including 
clarifying the retention policy for key exchange documents, 
improving BLM's management of ledgers to track value imbalances 
in multiphase exchanges, and developing a national land tenure 
strategy.

               TERMINATIONS, REDUCTIONS AND OTHER SAVINGS

    In order to invest in the critical priorities identified in 
this bill, and in order to contribute to the Nation's future 
prosperity, the Committee has proposed a number of program 
terminations, reductions, and other savings from the fiscal 
year 2009 level totaling over $320 million. In addition, over 
$300 million in program terminations, reductions, and other 
savings from the budget request are recommended. These 
adjustments, no matter their size, are important to setting the 
right priorities within the spending allocation, for 
controlling the deficit, and creating a government that is as 
efficient as it is effective.

                        REPROGRAMMING GUIDELINES

    The following reprogramming guidelines apply to funding 
provided in the accompanying Act providing appropriations for 
the Department of the Interior, Environment and Related 
Agencies. These guidelines are substantively the same as those 
promulgated for fiscal year 2009, with minor technical updates. 
The Committee expects that these guidelines will be strictly 
adhered to by the agencies.
    1. Definitions.--(a) The term ``reprogramming,'' as defined 
in these procedures, is the administrative process for 
reallocating funds from one budget activity to another after an 
appropriations bill has been enacted into law. For purposes of 
these guidelines the term ``budget activity'', sometimes 
referred to by the agencies as ``budget line-item'' or 
``program area,'' means any program for which a specific 
appropriation level is specified in Committee reports including 
reports of a Committee of Conference. For construction and land 
acquisition accounts, a reprogramming constitutes the 
reallocation of all funds, including unobligated balances, from 
one construction or land acquisition project, which is 
individually identified in the justification or Committee 
report, to another such project. Beyond these specific 
requirements, a reprogramming also is defined as a budget 
change which represents any significant departure from the 
program described in the agency's budget justifications.
    2. General Guidelines for Reprogramming.--(a) A 
reprogramming should be made only when an unforeseen situation 
arises; and then only if postponement of the project or the 
activity until the next appropriation year would result in 
actual loss or damage.
    (b) Except under the most urgent situations, reprogramming 
should not be employed to initiate new programs or increase 
allocations specifically denied or limited by Congress, or to 
decrease allocations specifically increased by the Congress.
    (c) Reprogramming proposals submitted to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations for approval shall be 
considered approved 30 calendar days after receipt if the 
Committees have posed no objection. However, agencies will be 
expected to extend the approval deadline if specifically 
requested by either Committee.
    3. Criteria and Exceptions.--A reprogramming must be 
submitted to the Committees in writing prior to implementation 
if it exceeds $1,000,000 annually or results in an increase or 
decrease of more than 10 percent annually in affected programs, 
with the following exceptions:
    (a) With regard to the Tribal priority allocations activity 
of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, there is no restriction on 
reprogrammings among these programs. However, the Bureau shall 
report on all reprogrammings made during a given fiscal year no 
later than 60 days after the end of the fiscal year.
    (b) With regard to the Environmental Protection Agency, 
State and Tribal Assistance Grants account, the Committee does 
not require reprogramming requests associated with States and 
Tribes Partnership Grants.
    (c) With regard to Department of the Interior or U.S. 
Forest Service construction projects, the threshold is 
$2,000,000 or 25 percent per project, except those 
reallocations that will result in a project cancellation or 
deferral must be submitted including projects funded in 
supplemental appropriations.
    4. Report Language.--Any limitation, directive, or 
earmarking contained in either the House or Senate report which 
is not contradicted by the other report nor specifically denied 
in the conference report shall be considered as having been 
approved by both Houses of Congress for purposes of these 
reprogramming guidelines.
    5. Assessments.--Increased assessments for centralized 
services or other purposes or new transfers of funds to 
contingency or reserve accounts which have not been described 
in the budget should be treated as reprogrammings if the 
amounts assessed or transferred exceed the thresholds.
    6. Land Acquisitions and Forest Legacy.--(a) Lands shall 
not be acquired for more than the approved appraised value (as 
addressed in section 301(3) of Public Law 91-646) except for 
condemnations and declarations of taking, unless such 
acquisitions are submitted to the Committees for approval in 
compliance with these procedures.
    (b) Subsection (a) does not apply to tracts with an 
appraised value of $1,000,000 or less.
    7. Land Exchanges.--Land exchanges, wherein the estimated 
value of the Federal lands to be exchanged is greater than 
$2,000,000, shall not be consummated until the Committees have 
had a 30-day period in which to examine the proposed exchange, 
and the Committee shall be provided advance notification of 
exchanges valued between $500,000 and $2,000,000.
    8. Sequestrations or Across-the-Board Reductions.--The 
definition of the term ``budget activity'' established by 
paragraph 1(a) of these instructions shall also be the 
definition of the level at which any general, across-the-board 
or sequestration related reductions mandated by law are to be 
applied to activities funded in any Interior, Environment and 
Related Agencies Appropriations bill.

                  TITLE I--DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR


                       Bureau of Land Management

    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is responsible for the 
multiple use management, protection, and development of a full 
range of natural resources, including minerals, timber, 
rangeland, fish and wildlife habitat, and wilderness on about 
258 million acres of the Nation's public lands and for 
management of 700 million additional acres of Federally-owned 
subsurface mineral rights. The Bureau is the second largest 
supplier of public outdoor recreation in the Western United 
States. The Bureau's National Landscape Conservation System 
includes about 29 million acres of national monuments, 
conservation areas, wild and scenic rivers, national scenic and 
historic trails, and other areas that have received special 
recognition and protection through congressional or 
presidential conservation designations.
    The Committee recommendations for all BLM accounts are 
based on changes to the President's budget request. Unless 
otherwise stated, the Committee approves the items in the 
budget justification and supporting materials from the Bureau. 
The amounts recommended by the Committee for each Bureau of 
Land Management appropriation account, compared with the budget 
estimates by activity, are shown in the following table:
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                   MANAGEMENT OF LANDS AND RESOURCES




Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................      $890,194,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       975,351,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       950,496,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +60,302,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................      -24,855,000

*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $950,496,000 for management of 
lands and resources, $60,302,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $24,855,000 below the budget request. The 
amounts recommended by the Committee compared with the budget 
estimates by activity and subactivity are shown in the table at 
the beginning of the Bureau of Land Management entry.
    The Committee recognizes several new initiatives in this 
request. The recommendation fully funds the renewable energy 
portion of the New Energy Frontier initiative and provides 
steady funding for the fossil energy programs. The Committee 
also fully funds the Climate Impacts initiative as discussed 
below. The Committee recommendation also fully funds the 
bureau's component of the 21st Century Youth Conservation Corps 
initiative with a $5,000,000 increase.
    Land Resources.--The Committee recommends $241,192,000 for 
land resources, $39,995,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $7,000,000 below the budget request. The Committee 
recommendation fully funds the climate impacts request of 
$15,000,000 and understands that about half of this will be 
utilized on National Landscape Conservation System lands. The 
Committee supports this effort, and expects that it will be 
implemented following further scientific evaluations and 
management planning. The Bureau should work closely with the 
U.S. Geological Survey, other Interior bureaus, the Forest 
Service, and State and local partners on this climate impact 
effort and provide the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations a report concerning the plans for use of these 
funds within 120 days of enactment. This coordination is 
discussed further in the front of this report.
    Within the funds provided for range management, the 
Committee designates $1,000,000 to help reduce the backlog in 
grazing permits. The Committee recognizes that the increasing 
numbers of permits expiring, increased costs for processing, 
and litigation, have resulted in a significant backlog and 
workload in processing permits. This funding should be targeted 
to those areas where litigation is causing significant delays.
    The recommendation includes $2,500,000 in the soil, water 
and air activity for the new youth initiative: these funds may 
be used in other activities if it enhances the new initiative. 
The Committee recommendation provides $60,486,000 for wild 
horse and burro management, $19,873,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 level and $7,000,000 below the budget request.
    Wildlife and Fisheries.--The Committee recommends 
$50,232,000 for wildlife and fisheries, $1,743,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $1,145,000 above the 
request. The increase above the request includes restoring 
$145,000 for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and 
$500,000 increases for both the wildlife base program and the 
plant conservation program within wildlife management.
    Threatened and Endangered Species.--The Committee 
recommends $22,112,000 for threatened and endangered species as 
requested, $399,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. 
The Committee encourages the Bureau to increase its efforts 
toward recovery of listed plant and animal species and take 
conservation action on Bureau-managed lands and waters for at-
risk species and ecosystems so the need for listing is 
prevented.
    Recreation Management.--The Committee recommends 
$67,692,000 for recreation management as requested, $3,954,000 
above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The Committee 
recommendation fully funds the new youth initiative. These 
funds may be used in other activities if it enhances the new 
initiative. The recommendation maintains funding for the 
various national scenic and historic trails.
    The Committee encourages the BLM to comply with the 
provisions of the Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and 
Protection Act and allow landowner, lessee and inholder access 
to their property within the boundary of the Steens Mountain 
Cooperative Management and Protection Area. Unless funding is 
provided for land acquisition or exchanges, landowners should 
be afforded full access to their property.
    Energy and Minerals.--The Committee recommends $89,689,000 
for energy and minerals, $9,724,000 below the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $21,000,000 below the budget request.
    The Committee recommended program level for oil, gas, and 
coal permitting and leasing and management activities, 
including the Application for a Permit to Drill (APD) fee and 
the off-budget, pilot offices permit processing fund, provides 
for all activities supported in the Administration request.
    The Committee recommendation includes the increased APD fee 
requested by the Administration, which yields $9,100,000 more 
than in fiscal year 2009. This cost recovery APD fee increases 
from $4,000 to $6,500 per permit, which is closer to the actual 
cost of issuing a permit.
    The Committee recommendation does not include the 
Administration request to amend the Energy Policy Act of 2005 
to stop the use of $21,000,000 in mandatory funds for the pilot 
oil and gas permitting offices. The Administration request had 
assumed a loss of this off-budget $21,000,000. The request made 
up for this reduction with an increase of $11,900,000 in 
discretionary funds in oil and gas management and the increased 
$9,100,000 from the APD fee. The Committee recommendation does 
not include the requested $11,900,000 increase. In addition, 
the Committee has decreased oil and gas management 
discretionary funds by $9,100,000, which is covered by the APD 
fee increase. When these discretionary, mandatory, and APD cost 
recovery receipts are considered, the overall Committee 
recommendation for oil and gas activities is the same as the 
budget request. The recommendation fully funds the request for 
a $2,500,000 increase for enhanced audit and compliance as part 
of the New Energy Frontier initiative.
    Realty and Ownership Management.--The Committee recommends 
$97,232,000 for realty and ownership management as requested, 
$17,167,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    The recommendation includes the entire request of 
$16,100,000 to increase BLM activities in support of the 
renewable energy initiative. The Committee expects that these 
funds will be used by a variety of BLM programs in support of 
this effort. The Committee is concerned that a rapid expansion 
of renewable energy projects should be done with care. The BLM 
should look for opportunities to mitigate potential adverse 
habitat impacts through the conservation and protection of 
native habitat and mitigation and rehabilitation with 
appropriate native plant materials. The BLM should provide the 
Committee a summary plan within 120 days that describes the 
policy, administrative and management-level actions that will 
be taken during the evaluation and approval processes for 
renewable energy development on Federal lands to ensure: (1) 
that biological resources are assessed at appropriate scales; 
(2) and to ensure that fish, wildlife, and plant populations 
are sustained over the long-term through proper project 
location, mitigation, operational standards, and monitoring.
    Resource Protection and Maintenance.--The Committee 
recommends $94,077,000 for resource protection and maintenance 
as requested, $1,526,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level. The Committee is concerned about the Bureau of Land 
Management decision to stop trash collection services in the 
Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area, CA and expects BLM to 
restore trash pick-up services.
    Transportation and Facilities Maintenance.--The Committee 
recommends $73,155,000 for transportation and facilities 
maintenance as requested, $702,000 below the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level.
    Land and Resource Information Systems.--The Committee 
recommends $16,754,000 for land and resource information 
systems as requested, $173,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level.
    Mining Law Administration.--The Committee recommends 
$36,696,000 for mining law administration as requested, 
$2,000,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. Offsetting 
fees are equal to the amount made available to support this 
activity.
    Workforce and Organizational Support.--The Committee 
recommends $158,060,000 for workforce and organizational 
support as requested, $3,166,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level.
    Challenge Cost Share.--The Committee recommends $9,500,000 
for the Bureau's challenge cost share program, the same as the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted funding level and the budget request.
    National Monuments and National Conservation Areas.--The 
Committee recommends $30,801,000 for National Monuments and 
National Conservation areas, $2,605,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $2,000,000 above the budget request. The 
Committee notes that the National Landscape Conservation System 
(NLCS) was recently authorized in Public Law 111-11. It 
comprises about 29 million acres, as much land as either the 
national park system or national wildlife refuge system manage 
in the lower 48 States. The Committee is encouraged by the BLM 
management of this new system of special public lands and 
accordingly has increased the base funding by $2,000,000. The 
Committee notes that additional funding for the NLCS is 
provided in other activities, such as wilderness, 
transportation, and the Oregon and California Grant Lands 
account. In addition, about half of the funds added for the new 
climate change initiative within the soil, air, and water 
management activity will be utilized on the NLCS lands.

    The Committee has included language on land acquisition in 
the front section of this report.

                   OREGON AND CALIFORNIA GRANT LANDS




Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................      $109,949,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       111,557,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       111,557,000

    Appropriation, 2009...............................        +1,608,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0


    The Committee recommends $111,557,000 for the Oregon and 
California grant lands as requested, $1,608,000 above the 2009 
enacted level.

               FOREST ECOSYSTEM HEALTH AND RECOVERY FUND

                   (REVOLVING FUND, SPECIAL ACCOUNT)

    The Committee includes bill language, as in the past, 
allowing funds made available in the Forest Ecosystem Health 
and Recovery Fund to be used for various forestry purposes 
including planning, preparing, implementing and monitoring 
salvage timber sales and forest ecosystem restoration 
activities. This fund includes the Federal share of receipts 
derived from treatments funded by this account and deposited 
into this fund. The recommended bill language extends this 
authority through fiscal year 2015.

                           RANGE IMPROVEMENTS




Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $10,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        10,000,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................        10,000,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................                 0
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0


    The Committee recommends an indefinite appropriation of not 
less than $10,000,000 to be derived from public lands receipts 
and Bankhead-Jones Farm Tenant Act lands grazing receipts. 
Receipts are used for construction, purchase, and maintenance 
of range improvements, such as seeding, fence construction, 
weed control, water development, fish and wildlife habitat 
improvement, and planning and design of these projects.

               SERVICE CHARGES, DEPOSITS, AND FORFEITURES

    The Committee recommends an indefinite appropriation 
estimated to be $31,255,000 for service charges, deposits, and 
forfeitures as requested, a decrease of $2,566,000 from the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The Service Charges, Deposits, 
and Forfeitures appropriation is offset with fees collected 
under specified sections of the Federal Land Policy and 
Management Act of 1976 and other Acts to pay for reasonable 
administrative and other costs in connection with rights-of-way 
applications from the private sector, miscellaneous cost-
recoverable realty cases, timber contract expenses, repair of 
damaged lands, the adopt-a-horse program, and the provision of 
copies of official public land documents.

                       MISCELLANEOUS TRUST FUNDS

    The Committee recommends an indefinite appropriation 
estimated to be $20,130,000, the same as the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and the budget request, for miscellaneous trust 
funds. The Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 
provides for the receipt and expenditure of moneys received as 
donations or gifts (section 307). Funds in this trust fund are 
derived from the administrative and survey costs paid by 
applicants for conveyance of omitted lands (lands fraudulently 
or erroneously omitted from original cadastral surveys), from 
advances for other types of surveys requested by individuals, 
and from contributions made by users of Federal rangelands. 
Amounts received from the sale of Alaska town lots are also 
available for expenses of sale and maintenance of town sites. 
Revenue from unsurveyed lands, and surveys of omitted lands, 
administrative costs of conveyance, and gifts and donations 
must be appropriated before it can be used.

          ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS, BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT

    The Committee recommendation includes the administrative 
provisions as requested.

                United States Fish and Wildlife Service

    The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is to 
conserve, protect and enhance fish and wildlife and their 
habitats for the continuing benefit of people. The Service has 
responsibility for migratory birds, threatened and endangered 
species, certain marine mammals, and land under Service 
control.
    The Service manages more than 150 million acres across the 
United States, encompassing a 550-unit National Wildlife Refuge 
System, additional wildlife and wetlands areas, and 70 National 
fish hatcheries. A network of law enforcement agents and port 
inspectors enforce Federal laws for the protection of fish and 
wildlife.

                          RESOURCE MANAGEMENT




Appropriation enacted, 2009*....                          $1,140,962,000
Budget estimate, 2010...........                           1,218,206,000
Recommended, 2010...............                           1,248,756,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009.........                            +107,794,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.......                            +30,550,000

*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The amounts recommended by the Committee compared with the 
budget estimates by activity are shown in the following table:
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

    Ecological Services.--The Committee recommends $295,127,000 
for ecological services, $18,857,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
level and $4,050,000 above the budget request.
    Changes from the request include increases of $1,000,000 
for the candidate conservation program, $500,000 for the 
listing program, $1,200,000 for the coastal program, $500,000 
for whooping crane breeding facilities in Louisiana in the 
recovery program, $350,000 for Stellers and spectacled sea 
eider recovery in Alaska, and $500,000 for stream bank 
restoration in Georgia in the partners program.
    The Committee directs the Service to review the processes 
by which it reviews and determines the status of species. The 
Service should ensure the orderly and timely listing of any 
species warranting the protection of the Endangered Species Act 
while minimizing the use of the petition process. The Committee 
is concerned about the known backlog of candidate species that 
warrant listing proposals but for which that action has been 
precluded, in some cases for many years, by lack of sufficient 
resources. The Committee directs the Service to report on this 
issue, within 90 days of enactment. This report should identify 
mechanisms to coordinate efficiently and effectively with State 
fish and wildlife agencies, Indian Tribes, universities, and 
private organizations to identify species deserving protection 
under the Endangered Species Act.
    Within the funding provided for candidate conservation, 
$500,000 is provided for sage grouse conservation efforts in 
Idaho.
    The Committee supports the funding included in the request 
for aplomado falcon and California condor recovery. The Service 
is encouraged to continue to support these ongoing, successful 
recovery efforts.
    The Committee is concerned about increased mortality of 
bats in the northeastern United States from white nose syndrome 
and encourages the Service to work with the USGS to research 
the cause and extent of the problem and develop a mitigation 
plan.
    The Committee encourages the Service to work with the High 
Desert Partnership in Oregon on developing and implementing 
landscape-level conservation strategies.
    The Committee urges the Service to work with the Upper 
Susquehanna Coalition to help restore wetland habitat and 
improve water quality in the Upper Susquehanna River 
headwaters.
    National Wildlife Refuge System.--The Committee recommends 
$503,279,000 for the National Wildlife Refuge System, 
$40,420,000 above the fiscal year 2009 level and $20,000,000 
above the budget request.
    Changes from the request include increases of $16,000,000 
for refuge wildlife and habitat management, $1,000,000 for 
volunteer programs in the visitor services program, $2,000,000 
for refuge law enforcement, $1,000,000 for conservation 
planning, $2,000,000 for annual maintenance and a decrease of 
$2,000,000 from deferred maintenance.
    The increased funding for wildlife and habitat should be 
used in conjunction with the refuge's workforce planning 
efforts to fill essential vacancies nationwide. The Service is 
directed to report to the Committee on the planned allocation 
of refuge system funding increases within 90 days of enactment 
of this Act.
    The Committee believes that the Service should adequately 
document, protect, and manage significant cultural resources on 
its lands. The 150 million acre refuge system contains numerous 
cultural resources that can be found nowhere else. An example 
of this is the ancient Chamorro cave art that must be protected 
at Guam National Wildlife Refuge. The Committee urges the 
Service to expand its work to document and protect the numerous 
cultural resources on its lands.
    The Committee remains concerned about the situation on the 
Southwestern Border and encourages the Service to direct a 
portion of the increase for refuge law enforcement to the 
Southwest.
    The Committee is supportive of the new Marine National 
Monument designations within the refuge system. However, the 
Committee is concerned that the Service is not dedicating 
sufficient resources to the management of the new areas. 
Further, the Committee understands that there are two recent 
shipwrecks within the monument that are jeopardizing delicate 
coral reefs in the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National 
Monument. The Service should work with its partners to remove 
these ships before the damage to the coral reefs is 
irreversible.
    The Committee supports the enhancement of public access to 
the Hanford Reach National Monument and encourages the Service 
to employ cooperative agreements with local governments and 
organizations, and the use of private voluntary labor, to carry 
out projects and programs to improve public access to the 
Monument.
    Migratory Bird Management, Law Enforcement, and 
International Conservation.--The Committee recommends 
$133,593,000 for migratory bird management, law enforcement, 
and international conservation, $6,876,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level and $3,500,000 above the budget 
request.
    Changes to the request include increases of $500,000 for 
migratory bird management, $1,000,000 for law enforcement and 
$2,000,000 for international affairs.
    The increase for migratory birds is for the urban treaty 
program. The Committee is aware that there is a backlog of 
communities that have expressed interest in the program and 
encourages the Service to continue to support this program as a 
part of their youth in the outdoors initiative.
    The increase provided for law enforcement is for additional 
special agents to combat the growing trade in illegal wildlife. 
The number of special agents is alarmingly low, despite the 
fact that the trade in illegal wildlife and wildlife parts 
shows no signs of decreasing.
    Within the increase for international affairs, $2,000,000 
is for the Wildlife Without Borders program.
    The Committee is aware of the impacts of the Chytrid 
disease on amphibian species worldwide. Amphibian species are 
disappearing at over 200 times their historic rate, and if left 
unchecked, up to 30 percent of these species could be extinct 
within two to three decades. The Committee urges the Service to 
work with the international conservation community to establish 
conservation and captive breeding programs to conserve the most 
imperiled of these species.
    Fisheries.--The Committee recommends $144,195,000 for 
fisheries, $12,364,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level 
and $3,500,000 above the budget request.
    The changes to the request include increases of $1,000,000 
for the mass marking of fish in the Great Lakes, $1,000,000 to 
conduct scientific review of the Klamath, North Coast, and 
Central Valley hatchery operations in California, $1,300,000 
for the establishment of a fisheries resource office in West 
Virginia to focus on aquatic species restoration and management 
in the Appalachian Highlands region, and $200,000 for sea otter 
and Steller sea lion conservation in Alaska.
    The Service is directed to continue managing snakehead fish 
and determining the cause of cancer in bullhead catfish in the 
Potomac and South River watersheds.
    The Committee has increased funding for sea otters in 
Alaska and directs the Service to continue its ongoing 
conservation efforts for the southern sea otter. The Service is 
directed to report to the Committee on its conservation efforts 
and the funding distribution for both northern and southern sea 
otter conservation within 60 days of enactment of this Act.
    Climate Change Adaptive Science Capacity.--The Committee 
recommends $20,000,000, as requested for the new climate change 
adaptive science capacity activity.
    The Committee agrees with the concept set forward in the 
request on the need for applied science and landscape level 
conservation as climate changes. The Committee has included 
further language and direction on this issue in the front of 
this report.
    General Administration.--The Committee recommends 
$153,562,000 for general administration, $10,277,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $500,000 below the budget 
request.
    The changes to the request include increases of $500,000 
for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and a decrease of 
$1,000,000 from the National Conservation Training Center.
    The Committee notes that the Service designated the 
California/Nevada office as a separate region and acknowledges 
the reasons for doing so. However, the Committee feels that, 
given increasing overhead costs, rental costs and rising fuel 
costs for field stations, the Service should be taking steps to 
reduce the overall number of offices and streamline the 
activities associated with these offices to the maximum extent 
possible.
    The Service has successfully achieved a model for cross 
servicing administrative functions between regional offices 
with the addition of the California/Nevada region, which relies 
on the support functions provided by the Northwest region. The 
Committee directs the Service to provide a report with options 
for reducing the number of administrative offices and 
consolidating support services within 180 days of enactment of 
this Act. Information on the initial investments needed to 
achieve these goals, the impacts on personnel and potential 
cost efficiencies should be included in this report.
    The Committee is also concerned about the continuity of 
Service programs and services among the regions. Program 
delivery, internet content, management differences, and 
organizational structures should be standardized so that 
regional boundaries are seamless and services are consistently 
delivered to the public.
    Within the funding provided for the National Fish and 
Wildlife Foundation, $1,500,000 is provided for competitive 
endangered species grants.
    The Committee recognizes the importance of the Bay-Delta 
Conservation Plan and urges the Secretary to continue ongoing 
Departmental efforts to work with stakeholders.
    Bill Language.--The Committee includes bill language, as in 
previous years, limiting funding for the endangered species 
listing program. A total of $20,603,000 is for listing, of 
which $10,632,000 is for critical habitat designation.

    The Committee is aware that the Refuge System is building 
or replacing visitor centers with funding provided in the 
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The Committee 
is also aware that the Refuge System was previously working to 
update its priority list for visitor centers. The Service 
should be cautious in developing new priorities and base the 
location of these proposed visitor centers on a logical, 
national methodology. The Committee believes that refuge 
visitor centers are appropriate in limited locations provided 
they are modest facilities that quickly orient the public to 
the refuge and encourage them to get out on the landscape 
rather than linger in large buildings that are expensive to 
maintain. Additionally, the Committee applauds the Service for 
its development of a visitor center planning tool, but feels 
that scoping must be based on realistic visitation estimates, 
account for proximity to large populated areas, and focus on 
getting the visiting public, including school groups, onto the 
land to experience wildlife and nature first-hand.
    The Committee urges the Service to act expeditiously in 
completing the previously funded planning and design of the 
Cahaba River NWR visitor center, AL.

    The Committee has included language on land acquisition in 
the front section of this report.

            COOPERATIVE ENDANGERED SPECIES CONSERVATION FUND

    The Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund 
provides grants to States and territories for endangered 
species recovery actions on non-Federal lands and provides 
funds for non-Federal land acquisition to facilitate habitat 
protection. Individual States and territories provide 25 
percent of grant project costs. Cost sharing is reduced to 10 
percent when two or more States or territories are involved in 
a project.

    The Committee recommends $100,000,000 for the cooperative 
endangered species conservation fund, as requested, $24,499,000 
above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    Within the funding provided for this program, $34,307,000 
is derived from the Cooperative Endangered Species Fund, and 
$65,693,000 is derived from the Land and Water Conservation 
Fund. The request proposed to fund the entire amount from the 
Land and Water Conservation Fund.

                     NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE FUND

    This program makes payments in lieu of taxes based on their 
fair market value, to counties in which Service lands are 
located. Payments to counties are estimated to be $22,726,000 
in fiscal year 2010, with $14,100,000 derived from this 
appropriation and $8,626,000 from the net refuge receipts 
estimated to be collected in fiscal year 2009.



Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $14,100,000

    The Committee recommends $14,100,000 for the National 
Wildlife Refuge Fund, the same as the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and the budget request.

               NORTH AMERICAN WETLANDS CONSERVATION FUND

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, through the North 
American Wetlands Conservation Fund, leverages partner 
contributions for wetlands conservation. Projects to date have 
been in 50 States, 13 Canadian provinces, 25 Mexican states, 
and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In addition to this appropriation, 
the Service receives funding from fines for violations of the 
Migratory Bird Treaty Act; interest earned on tax receipts in 
the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration account from taxes on 
firearms, ammunition, archery equipment, pistols, and 
revolvers, and from the Sport Fish Restoration account from 
taxes on fishing tackle and equipment, electric trolling motors 
and fish finders, and certain marine gasoline taxes. By law, 
sport fish restoration receipts are used for coastal wetlands 
in States bordering the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, States 
bordering the Great Lakes, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, 
Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the 
freely associated States in the Pacific, and American Samoa.




Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $42,647,000

    The Committee recommends $52,647,000 for the North American 
Wetlands Conservation Fund, as requested, $10,000,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level.

                NEOTROPICAL MIGRATORY BIRD CONSERVATION

    The Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act of 2000 
authorizes grants for the conservation of neotropical migratory 
birds in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, 
with 75 percent of the amounts available to be expended on 
projects outside the U.S. There is a three to one matching 
requirement under this program.




Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................        $4,750,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................         4,750,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................         5,250,000

    Appropriation, 2009...............................          +500,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................          +500,000


    The Committee recommends $5,250,000 for the neotropical 
migratory bird conservation program, $500,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level and the budget request.

                MULTINATIONAL SPECIES CONSERVATION FUND

    This account combines funding for programs under the former 
rewards and operations (African elephant) account, the former 
rhinoceros and tiger conservation account, the Asian elephant 
conservation program, and the great ape conservation program. 
The African Elephant Act of 1988 established a fund for 
assisting nations and organizations involved with conservation 
of African elephants. The Service provides grants to African 
Nations and to qualified organizations and individuals to 
protect and manage critical populations of these elephants. The 
Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Act of 1994 authorized 
programs to enhance compliance with the Convention on 
International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) and U.S. or 
foreign laws prohibiting the taking or trade of rhinoceros, 
tigers, or their habitat. The Asian Elephant Conservation Act 
of 1997 authorized a grant program, similar to the African 
elephant program, to enable cooperators from regional and range 
country agencies and organizations to address Asian elephant 
conservation problems. The world's surviving populations of 
wild Asian elephants are found in 13 south and southeastern 
Asian countries. The Great Ape Conservation Act of 2000 
authorized grants to foreign governments, the CITES 
secretariat, and non-governmental organizations for the 
conservation of great apes.




Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $10,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        10,000,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................        11,500,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................        +1,500,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................        +1,500,000


    The Committee recommends $11,500,000 for the multinational 
species conservation fund, $1,500,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and the budget request.
    The funding levels are as follows: $3,000,000 for 
rhinoceros and tiger conservation, $1,750,000 for marine turtle 
conservation, and $2,250,000 each for African elephant 
conservation, Asian elephant conservation, and great ape 
conservation.
    The Committee is aware that the International Crane 
Conservation Act and the Rare Cats and Canids Act are in the 
process of being authorized. The Committee encourages the 
Administration to include funding for these important 
conservation programs in their next budget submission.

                    STATE AND TRIBAL WILDLIFE GRANTS

    The State and Tribal wildlife grants program provides funds 
for States to implement their comprehensive wildlife 
conservation plans for species of greatest conservation need. 
States are required to provide at least a 25 percent cost share 
for grants that implement the State Wildlife Action Plans.




Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $75,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       115,000,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       115,000,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +40,000,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0


    The Committee recommends $115,000,000 for State and Tribal 
wildlife grants, as requested, $40,000,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level. Within the amount provided, $7,000,000 
is for competitively awarded grants to Indian Tribes.
    The Committee has agreed to the requested funding increase 
in this account, however, the Committee has not allowed the 
full amount to be used for updating the State Wildlife Action 
Plans to incorporate climate change adaptation and mitigation. 
The Committee is aware that some States have previously 
incorporated climate change concepts into their plans and that 
the remaining States will do so as a part of their required 
periodic updates. Therefore, the Committee directs the Service 
to provide at least half of the requested funding increase for 
on-the-ground conservation projects in addition to updating the 
State Wildlife Action Plans.
    Bill Language.--The Committee has included bill language 
that changes the State funding match requirements for this 
program from 50 percent to 25 percent.

                FEDERAL AID IN WILDLIFE RESTORATION FUND




Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................                $0
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        28,000,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................                 0

    Appropriation, 2009...............................                 0
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................       -28,000,000


    The Committee has not included the requested increase for 
the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration youth program. The 
Committee supports the youth in the outdoors initiative, but 
has concerns with the implementation of this particular 
component.

                         NATIONAL PARK SERVICE

    The mission of the National Park Service is to preserve 
unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the 
national park system for the enjoyment, education, and 
inspiration of this and future generations. Established in 
1916, the National Park Service has stewardship 
responsibilities for the protection and preservation of the 
heritage resources of the national park system.
    The system, consisting of 391 separate and distinct units, 
is recognized globally as a leader in park management and 
resource preservation. The national park system represents much 
of the finest the Nation has to offer in terms of scenery, 
historical and archeological relics, and cultural heritage. 
Through its varied sites, the National Park Service attempts to 
explain America's history, interpret its culture, preserve 
examples of its natural ecosystems, and provide recreational 
and educational opportunities for U.S. citizens and visitors 
from all over the world. In addition, the National Park Service 
provides support to Tribal, local, and State governments to 
preserve culturally significant, ecologically important, and 
public recreational lands.
    The National Park Service will be 100 years old in 2016 and 
the Service has embarked on an historic ten-year effort to 
enhance the national parks leading up to this historic 
celebration. The Committee continues to support this effort and 
the $2,260,684,000 recommended will provide the resources to 
continue to prepare the system for a second century of 
conservation, environmental stewardship and recreation 
benefiting millions of visitors from throughout the world. 
Included in the recommendation is a $100,000,000 increase above 
the 2009 enacted level, not including fixed costs increases, 
for the operations of the National Parks and $25,000,000 for 
the Parks Partnership, as requested.
    Table of Allocations by Activity.--The following table 
describes funding by activity for all accounts of the National 
Park Service.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                 OPERATION OF THE NATIONAL PARK SYSTEM




Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................    $2,131,529,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................     2,266,016,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................     2,260,684,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................      +129,155,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................       -5,332,000

*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $2,260,684,000 for Operation of 
the National Park Service (NPS), $129,155,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level and $5,332,000 below the budget 
request. This account funds the day-to-day operations of 
individual park units as well as regional and headquarters 
support operations of the NPS.
    Resource Stewardship.--The Committee recommends the 
following changes to the request:
    Enhance Ocean and Coastal Resource Stewardship: The 
Committee recommends $1,250,000 for this new program, 
$1,250,000 below the budget request. The request includes ten 
new FTE positions. The Committee questions the need for such a 
large personnel increase.
    Visitor Services.--The Committee recommends the following 
change to the request:
    Advance Interpretive Renaissance Plan: The Committee 
recommends $500,000, $875,000 below the budget request. The 
Committee supports the Web Learning proposal; however, the 
Committee does not find that the $875,000 request to Support 
Accountability in Interpretation and Education has been 
satisfactorily justified in the budget request.
    Youth Partnerships Program.--The Committee recommends 
$7,822,000, as requested, $5,000,000 over the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level. The Committee supports the National Park Service 
component of the Secretary's 21st Century Youth Conservation 
Initiative to provide high school and college aged youth 
internships and mentoring programs within the National Park 
System. In particular, the Committee supports the effort to 
place emphasis on recruiting candidates from socially and 
economically diverse backgrounds.
    Facility Maintenance and Operations.--The Committee 
recommends the following changes to the request:
    Facility Management Software System (FMSS): The Committee 
recommends $4,388,000 for the Facility Management Software 
System, $968,000 below the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$1,000,000 below the budget request. The Committee does not 
believe the increase has been satisfactorily justified in the 
budget request.
    Storm Preparedness.--The Committee has not provided the 
request of $2,207,000 to expand emergency storm damage 
preparedness. These funds were requested in anticipation of 
emergency repairs to restore park operations due to severe 
storms. The Committee traditionally funds such emergency 
activities through supplemental requests.
    Additional Guidelines.--The following additional directions 
and guidance are provided with respect to funding provided 
under this account:
    Climate Change Initiative: The Committee recommends 
$10,000,000, as requested. There was no funding for the new 
climate change initiative in fiscal year 2009. Several bureaus 
within the Department of the Interior have requested funding 
for separate climate change offices and activities. The 
National Park Service has an important stewardship role which 
will be impacted by climate change. However, the Committee is 
concerned about duplication of effort and the lack of an 
apparent department-wide plan to ensure integrated assessments, 
tool development, planning and resource management activities. 
In particular, the Committee questions the need for a separate 
climate change office within the National Park Service. The 
Committee has included further language and direction on this 
issue in the front of this report.
    National Mall Concerts.--The Committee directs the National 
Park Service to continue making financial contributions towards 
the summer concerts series staged on the Capitol Grounds. 
Within the amounts approved for park support, the Service shall 
increase funding for this program by $350,000 over the level 
provided in fiscal year 2009.
    Cultural Resource Stewardship.--In October 2008, the 
National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) issued a 
report entitled ``Saving Our History: A Review of National Park 
Cultural Resource Programs.'' This report made several 
recommendations to improve the Park Service's stewardship of 
cultural resources, including: new performance measures, park 
superintendent accountability, museum management, funding and 
staffing. Nearly two-thirds of the 391 national park units were 
created because of their historic and cultural resources. The 
NAPA report indicated that in 1995 cultural resource staffing 
and natural resource staffing were roughly the same. However, 
since that time, staffing for cultural resources has decreased 
by 27 percent, while staffing for natural resources has 
increased by 31 percent. The Committee urges the Director to 
review the NAPA findings and prepare a report for this 
Committee within 90 days of enactment of this Act on how future 
budgets will address the recommendations in the NAPA report.
    Brown v. Board of Education Foundation.--The Committee has 
included the request for this site within the Operations of the 
National Park Service.
    Regional Reorganizations.--The Committee has recently 
become aware of a planned reorganization of the Northeast 
Regional Office of the Park Service. Prior to finalizing its 
plan, the Service is directed to report to the Committee on its 
plan for managing the current programs administered by the 
Boston Regional Office and how the Service proposes to change 
the staffing plan for that office.
    Recreation Fees.--The Committee is aware of the consistent 
problem the Service has in obligating recreational fee 
revenues. The carryover of fee revenues has averaged over 
$270,000,000 in the last 3 years with 70 percent of this amount 
attributable to the collecting parks. Given the Service's large 
backlogs in several of its programs, it is clear that change is 
needed to address this problem. Existing authority provides 
sufficient flexibility to address this problem by reducing the 
allocation of fee revenues to the largest collecting parks from 
80 percent to 60 percent, thereby allowing the difference to be 
directed to priority projects that are ready for obligation in 
other parks. The Committee directs that NPS immediately begin 
allocating no more than 60 percent to the parks that carryover 
$4,000,000 or more from the previous fiscal year in unobligated 
balances. The Service may return some or all of the 20 percent 
difference, if the park area can demonstrate an immediate need 
to retain and obligate a project or projects that rank high on 
the Service's priority list.
    If by taking this action the Service is unable to show 
significant improvement in the obligation rate and use of fee 
revenues, the Committee will take further steps. The Committee 
further directs that the Service use these funds to meet 
nonrecurring servicewide priority needs that contribute to 
reduction in maintenance backlogs, enhanced visitor services 
and improved resource management and preservation.
    Sesquicentennial Civil War Planning.--The Sesquicentennial 
of the Civil War will provide a unique opportunity for the 
National Park Service to present itself to millions of 
Americans and foreign tourists. The Committee encourages the 
National Park Service, in collaboration with the Civil War 
Preservation Trust and other organizations, to update the 
content of its website and the information available at its 
Civil War Parks and to employ modern technology and adaptive 
and interactive media to present this information to the 
public.

                    PARK PARTNERSHIP PROJECT GRANTS

    Park Partnership Project Grants is a matching grant 
program, which allows the Park Service to fund merit-based 
signature projects and programs throughout the park system. It 
allows the Park Service to leverage, from non-federal sources, 
no less than 50 percent of the total cost of each project in 
the form of donated cash, assets, or a pledge of donation 
guaranteed by an irrevocable letter of credit.



Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................                $0
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        25,000,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................        25,000,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +25,000,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0


    The Committee recommends $25,000,000 for the new Park 
Partnership Project Grants, as requested in the budget. No 
funds were provided for this program in fiscal year 2009. This 
program was developed to help celebrate the one hundredth 
anniversary of the National Park System. The Committee believes 
that projects and programs funded through this account should 
be worthy of that milestone. Therefore, the Committee urges the 
Director to fund signature projects and programs consistent 
with the original stated intent of the program. In addition, 
the Committee directs the Service to provide a report within 90 
days of enactment of this Act, listing the projects selected, 
the criteria used for the selections and the funds allotted to 
each project from both Federal and non-federal sources. The 
report should also include a schedule for completion of each 
project.
    The Committee understands that approximately $10,000,000 
worth of projects were selected prior to the enactment of the 
fiscal year 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act. The Committee 
directs the Service to include in the above-referenced report 
an explanation of how these projects will be funded and if the 
funds provided through this bill will be used to cover those 
projects.

                  NATIONAL RECREATION AND PRESERVATION

    The National Recreation and Preservation account provides 
for outdoor recreation planning, preservation of cultural and 
national heritage resources, technical assistance to Federal, 
State and local agencies, and administration of Historic 
Preservation Fund grants.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $59,684,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        53,908,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................        59,386,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................          -298,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................        +5,478,000
    The Committee recommends $59,386,000 for National 
Recreation and Preservation, $298,000 below the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $5,478,000 above the budget request. The 
Committee recommends the following changes to the request.
    Heritage Areas Partnership Program.--The Committee 
recommends $17,814,000 for the Heritage Areas Partnership 
Program, $2,112,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level 
and $2,078,000 above the budget request. These funds finance 
grants to local non-profit groups in support of historical and 
cultural recognition, preservation and tourism activities. The 
Committee has recommended this increase to allow funding for 
the expanded number of heritage partnerships authorized by 
Congress in the Omnibus Public Lands Act of 2009. The number of 
authorized partnerships has increased during the last two years 
from 27 to 49, including 9 new areas authorized in March 2009. 
The Committee recommendation will provide at least $150,000 to 
the new areas without approved plans.
    The Park Service is directed to allocate funding to the 
heritage areas based on competitive criteria, following the 
general approach used in 2008. The Committee continues to 
direct the NPS to develop new guidelines for this program that 
include self-sufficiency plans for all heritage areas within a 
reasonable period of time.
    Statutory or Contract Aid.--The Committee recommends 
$1,900,000 for Statutory or Contract Aid, $3,700,000 below the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The President did not request 
funding for this program. These funds are to be allocated as 
follows:
          Angel Island Immigration Center (CA)--$1,000,000
          Star Spangled Banner National Historic Trail --
        $500,000
          Chesapeake Bay Gateways--$400,000
    Japanese American Confinement Sites.--The Committee 
continues to recognize the importance of preserving these 
sites, and the stories of those affected by the actions of the 
Federal government. Because of the importance of these areas to 
current and future generations, the Committee has included the 
following efforts across several Park Service accounts. The 
Committee has included $2,500,000, which is $1,500,000 above 
the request, for the Japanese American Site Grants program. The 
Committee has also included $350,000 in land acquisition, as 
requested, to acquire 17 acres at the Minidoka National 
Historic Site in Idaho. Additionally, the Committee has 
included new bill language in Title I, General Provisions, that 
will expand the acquisition boundary of the Minidoka National 
Historic Site in Idaho and the Heart Mountain site in Wyoming. 
This language will allow the National Park Service to purchase 
additional lands from willing sellers in future years.

                       HISTORIC PRESERVATION FUND

    The Historic Preservation Fund allows the State historic 
preservation offices to perform a variety of functions. These 
include State management and administration of existing grant 
obligations; review and advice on Federal projects and actions; 
determinations and nominations to the National Register; Tax 
Act certifications; and technical preservation services. The 
States also review properties to develop data for planning use. 
Funding in this account also supports direct grants to 
qualifying organizations for individual preservation projects 
and for activities in support of heritage tourism and local 
historic preservation.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009 *.........................       $69,500,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        77,675,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................        90,675,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +21,175,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................      +13,000,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $90,675,000 for historic 
preservation programs, $21,175,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $13,000,000 above the budget request. The 
Committee recommends the following changes to the request.
    Preserve America.--The Committee recommends $6,175,000 for 
the Preserve America program, $3,000,000 above the budget 
request. This program was not funded in fiscal year 2009. The 
Preserve America program provides small grants to local 
communities in support of heritage tourism, education and 
historic preservation planning activities.
    Save America's Treasures.--The Committee recommends 
$30,000,000 for the Save America's Treasures program, 
$10,000,000 above fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$10,000,000 above the budget request. These funds are used to 
make small, one-time grants for specific local historic 
preservation projects to preserve a building or artifact which 
might otherwise be lost to future generations. All projects 
require a 50 percent match. The bill provides $5,310,000 for 
the following specific projects with the remainder to be 
awarded based on the national competition conducted by the Park 
Service:

    Additional Guidance.--The following additional directions 
and guidance are provided with respect to funding provided 
under this account:
    State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices.--The 
Committee supports the long standing efforts of the State and 
Tribal Historic Preservation Offices to identify and protect 
irreplaceable historic and archeological resources. The 
Committee is pleased to provide the requested increase of 
$5,000,000 for these important programs and encourages the 
Service to seek additional future increases.
    Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) 
Grants.--The Committee remains strongly supportive of HBCU 
historic preservation activities. The ARRA provided $15,000,000 
to support these projects. However, there continues to be 
significant carryover balances in this program. The Committee 
looks forward to providing additional funding once the 
carryover balances have been reduced.

    Budget estimate, 2010.............................       +8,700,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $214,691,000 for construction, 
$17,830,000 below the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$8,700,000 above the budget request. These amounts fund major 
repairs and new construction for assets throughout the NPS. The 
Committee notes that the requested reduction to this account is 
in part due to reduced expenditures on the Modified Waters 
projects in the Everglades and in light of commitments made 
with the ARRA funds. The Committee expects the Service to 
continue to make progress on the Modified Waters project in 
2010 with the funds provided in prior years and carried over 
into 2010. The Committee has approved the amount requested by 
the President and adds funds for the following projects:

                              Total..................          8,838,000
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Bill Language.--Authorized Special Resource Studies.--The 
Committee has included bill language to direct the National 
Park Service to complete a special resource study along the 
route of the Mississippi River in the counties contiguous to 
the river from its headwaters in the State of Minnesota to the 
Gulf of Mexico.
    The following additional directions and guidance are 
provided with respect to funding provided under this account:
    Use of Prior Year Balances: The Committee recommends a 
$6,500,000 redirection using prior year balances. As noted 
earlier, the Park Service has significant balances in 
recreation fee revenue. That revenue should be used to address 
priority visitor-related projects.
    Everglades Restoration.--The Committee recommends 
$8,400,000 for the Modified Waters project. This includes the 
NPS request of $4,200,000 and an additional $4,200,000 for the 
Corps of Engineers, which was requested by the President in the 
Corps' budget. Continued funding for the Modified Waters 
project would allow for continuous work on the Tamiami Trail 
Bridge and road modifications as a first step to restore water 
flow to the park.
    Since the early 1990's this Committee has invested more 
than $1.3 billion for programs and projects to restore the 
Everglades, including lands for habitat conservation; water 
quality and water quantity improvement; restoration of more 
natural water flows; removal of invasive exotics and 
development of sound science. This large investment reflects 
the fact that the restoration of the Everglades is the largest 
environmental restoration project in the United States. 
Although much has been accomplished through the work of the 
Department, other Federal agencies and the State of Florida, 
much remains to be done to achieve restoration. It is critical 
that the bridging of the Tamiami Trail be completed at the 
earliest possible date so that flows can be restored between 
Everglades National Park and the State-managed Water 
Conservation Areas. The Committee agrees with the recent 
assessment of the National Academy of Sciences, which observed 
that unless restoration projects are completed soon, we may 
lose the opportunity to restore and preserve this unique and 
world class resource. The Committee urges the Department to 
continue its important work with its partners to focus on those 
projects with the greatest restoration benefits.
    Castillo de San Marcos National Monument.--The Committee 
has included $500,000 for preliminary planning and design of 
the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument Restoration 
Project with the understanding that construction will not 
commence until fee simple title of the affected property is 
conveyed to the Federal government by the City of St. 
Augustine, FL and the State of Florida.
    Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park: The 
Committee directs that $500,000 shall be made available to 
undertake the preparation of the Paterson Great Falls NHP 
general management plan.

the annual contract authority provided by 16 U.S.C. 46l-10a. 
This authority has not been used in years, and there are no 
plans to use it in fiscal year 2010. The Committee does not 
agree with the Administration's proposal to permanently cancel 
the authority.

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

    The Committee has included language on land acquisition in 
the front section of this report.
    Bill Language.--The bill includes new authority for the 
National Park Service to transfer funds to the Federal Highway 
Administration, without limitation. The Park Service should 
present its plans for transfers that will take place in 2010 
within 60 days of enactment of this Act and a report on 
transfers that were executed during fiscal year 2010 within 60 
days after the end of the fiscal year.

                    UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL SURVEY

    The United States Geological Survey (USGS) was established 
by an act of Congress on March 3, 1879 to provide a permanent 
Federal agency to conduct up-to-date systematic and scientific 
``classification of the public lands, and examination of the 
geological structure, mineral resources, and products of the 
National domain.'' The USGS is the Federal government's largest 
earth-science research agency and the primary source of data on 
the Nation's surface and ground water resources. Its activities 
include conducting detailed assessments of the energy and 
mineral potential of the Nation's land and State offshore 
areas; investigating and issuing warnings of earthquakes, 
volcanic eruptions, landslides, and other geologic and 
hydrologic hazards; research on the geologic structure of the 
Nation; studies of the geologic features, structure, processes, 
and history of other planets of our solar system; topographic 
surveys of the Nation and preparation of topographic and 
thematic maps and related cartographic products; development 
and production of digital cartographic data bases and products; 
collection on a routine basis of data on the quantity, quality, 
and use of surface and ground water; research in hydraulics and 
hydrology; the coordination of all Federal water data 
acquisition; the scientific understanding and technologies 
needed to support the sound management and conservation of our 
Nation's biological resources; and the application of remotely 
sensed data to the development of new cartographic, geologic, 
and hydrologic research techniques for natural resources 
planning and management, surveys, investigations, and research.
    The Committee recommendations for the USGS are based on 
changes to the President's budget request. Unless otherwise 
stated, the Committee approves the items in the budget 
justification and supporting materials from the Survey. The 
amounts recommended by the Committee compared with the budget 
estimates by activity are shown in the following table:
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                 SURVEYS, INVESTIGATIONS, AND RESEARCH
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................    $1,043,803,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................     1,097,844,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................     1,105,744,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +61,941,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................       +7,900,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $1,105,744,000 for surveys, 
investigations, and research, $61,941,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $7,900,000 above the budget request. The 
Committee notes that it has fully funded the requested funding 
increase of $3,000,000 for the New Energy Frontier initiative 
on alternative energy research in several budget activities and 
the request for $2,000,000 for the Survey's component of the 
21st Century Youth Conservation Corps initiative. The Committee 
bill also fully funds the requested increase of $22,000,000 for 
climate change science as discussed below.
    Geographic Research, Investigations, and Remote Sensing.--
The Committee recommends $145,590,000 for geographic research 
and remote sensing, $3,458,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $1,650,000 above the budget request. The 
recommendation accepts the Survey's request to move the 
National Geospatial Program from the Enterprise Information 
activity to this activity. The Committee has added $1,650,000 
above the request to fully support an ongoing commitment for 
the USGS to run the Civil Applications Committee (CAC) and 
associated supporting requirements. The Committee expects that 
the USGS will continue to chair the Civil Applications 
Committee, which they coordinate with 12 member and 6 associate 
member agencies; the CAC provides Federal civil agency access 
totechnology and information. Bill language has been added to 
clarify that the CAC total program level is $2,000,000. Funds 
provided by this Act for the Civil Applications Committee shall 
not be used for law enforcement purposes. The recommendation 
fully funds the budget request of $40,200,000 for the Landsat 
Data Continuity Mission and the ongoing Landsat 5/7 program.
    The Committee encourages the Survey to maintain the funding 
for the Chesapeake Bay geographic analysis and monitoring 
effort at the fiscal year 2008 level.
    The Committee is aware that the Survey entered into a 
cooperative agreement in 2002 for an innovative partnership 
whereby North Carolina would provide State-derived elevation 
data in the form of a new digital State map to the National 
Mapping program. The State has provided all of the data to 
USGS, and the map provided by North Carolina is available on 
the USGS website. The Committee understands that the terms of 
the cooperative agreement may not have been fulfilled. The 
Committee urges the USGS to work with the State of North 
Carolina on this matter.
    Geologic Hazards, Resources and Processes.--The Committee 
recommends $248,231,000 for geologic hazards, resources, and 
processes, $6,089,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level 
and $1,250,000 above the budget request. The Committee has 
added $1,000,000 above the request in the earthquake hazards 
subactivity for critically needed LIDAR and other seismological 
studies of areas with high earthquake risk and community 
danger. The recommendation also adds $250,000 for the Global 
Seismographic Network. The Committee remains encouraged by the 
ongoing multi-hazards initiative and encourages the Survey to 
continue to build on this useful effort.
    The Committee notes that is has fully funded the request 
for $4,000,000 for urgently needed extended continental shelf 
mapping to support a U.S. claim to additional continental shelf 
area, such as in the Arctic Ocean.
    Water Resources Investigations.--The Committee recommends 
$229,661,000 for water resources investigations, $8,297,000 
above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $1,780,000 above 
the budget request. The Committee has funded the requested 
increase of $5,000,000 for the National Streamflow information 
program. The Water Resources Research Act programs are fully 
funded at the request of $6,500,000. Changes to the request 
include $300,000 for the South Arkansas Sparta aquifer recovery 
study, $200,000 for the Hood Canal dissolved oxygen study, WA, 
$280,000 for the McHenry County groundwater protection program, 
IL and $1,000,000 for the ongoing US-Mexico Transboundary 
Aquifer Assessment Act study.
    Biological Research.--The Committee recommends $202,494,000 
for biological research, $17,164,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $3,220,000 above the budget request. The 
Committee has included the requested increases of $5,000,000 
for the new climate change science support for the U.S. Fish 
and Wildlife Service effort, $4,200,000 to expand research on 
the changing Arctic ecosystems, and $2,000,000 for the 
cooperative research units. The Committee recommendation 
includes a $2,000,000 increase within biological information 
management and delivery for support to coordinators of the 
national network of State conservation data agencies. The 
recommendation also includes $220,000 for the Silvio O. Conte 
Anadromous Fish Research Lab, MA, ongoing basic and applied 
research for the improved management of habitat for endangered 
fish species, fish passage, natural resources, and ultimately 
the economy and environment of the Connecticut River watershed 
and Long Island Sound. The Committee has added $1,000,000 to 
continue scientific support to the South San Francisco Bay salt 
ponds restoration effort, CA.
    The Committee remains concerned about the destructive fish 
disease, viral hemorrhagic septicemia, and encourages the 
Survey to pursue research on this issue. The Committee is also 
concerned about the impacts of the Chytrid disease on amphibian 
species worldwide and encourages the Survey to work with the 
international conservation community on this issue. In 
addition, the Committee remains concerned about increased 
mortality of bats in the northeastern United States from white 
nose syndrome and encourages the USGS to work with the Fish and 
Wildlife Service to research the cause and extent of the 
problem and develop a mitigation plan.
    Enterprise Information.--The Committee recommends 
$45,969,000 for enterprise information as requested, $3,315,000 
above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The recommendation 
includes the $2,000,000 for the USGS portion of the 21st 
Century Youth Conservation Corps initiative.
    Science Support.--The Committee recommends $69,225,000 for 
science support as requested, $1,795,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level.
    Facilities.--The Committee recommends $106,397,000 for 
facilities as requested, $4,274,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level.
    Global Climate Change Research Program.-- The Committee 
recommends $58,177,000 for the global climate change research 
program as requested, $17,549,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level. The recommendation fully funds the requested 
program increases above fiscal year 2009 of $5,000,000 for the 
National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center, $7,000,000 
for various carbon sequestration scientific activities, and 
$5,000,000 for other climate change science. The Committee's 
direction on coordinating climate change activities and 
completing the plan directed in fiscal year 2009 are in the 
front of this report.

                      MINERALS MANAGEMENT SERVICE

    The Minerals Management Service (MMS) is responsible for 
collecting, distributing, accounting and auditing revenues from 
mineral leases on Federal and Indian lands. In fiscal year 
2009, MMS expects to collect and distribute about $15.6 billion 
from active Federal and Indian leases. The MMS also manages the 
offshore energy and mineral resources on the Nation's outer 
continental shelf (OCS). To date, the OCS program has been 
focused primarily on oil and gas leasing. Over the past several 
years, MMS has been exploring the possible development of other 
marine mineral resources, especially sand and gravel. With the 
passage of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, MMS assumed increased 
responsibility for oil spill research, including the promotion 
of increased oil spill response capabilities, and for oil spill 
financial responsibility certifications of offshore platforms 
and pipelines. Under the Energy Policy Act of 2005, MMS has new 
responsibilities over Federal offshore renewable energy and 
related uses of America's offshore public lands. Fiscal year 
2007 marked the start of the Coastal Impact Assistance Program; 
it will provide $1 billion in mandatory funding over 4 years 
from offshore oil and gas receipts to coastal States (primarily 
Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi) and counties for 
environmental restoration and other important civic projects.
    The amounts recommended by the Committee compared with the 
budget estimates by activity are shown in the following table:
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                ROYALTY AND OFFSHORE MINERALS MANAGEMENT
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................      $157,373,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       174,317,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       174,317,000
Comparison:
  Appropriation, 2009.................................       +16,944,000
  Budget estimate, 2010...............................                 0
    The Committee recommends an appropriation of $174,317,000 
for royalty and offshore minerals management, as requested, 
$16,944,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The 
Committee recommends use of $166,730,000 in receipts and cost 
recovery fees, which agrees with the Administration request to 
increase use of receipts by $10,000,000 and collect new 
inspection fees totaling $10,000,000.
    The Committee has provided the requested increase for 
renewable energy in the Minerals Management Service. The 
Committee urges the Administration to proceed in this effort 
with sufficient planning and public input. The Service should 
continue to develop a comprehensive alternative energy 
assessment on the Outer Continental Shelf that delineates those 
areas that they would propose be available for offshore 
alternative energy production, policies for collecting fees and 
royalties, siting and operational standards, reclamation 
standards, environmental protections needed, and the staff and 
resources needed to administer a comprehensive alternative 
energy program.
    The Committee notes over the last several years there have 
been expanded areas available for oil and gas leasing in the 
Beaufort and Chukchi Seas, and approved exploration plans 
involving seismic testing and exploratory drilling in these 
waters. These waters currently host a rich diversity of 
wildlife and fish resources, and are critical to the survival 
of the subsistence culture of the Inupiat people of Arctic 
Alaska. To ensure sound science-based planning and decision-
making with regard to these important resources, a 
comprehensive assessment of the health, biodiversity, and 
functioning of Arctic marine and coastal ecosystems, including 
the impacts of industrial activities and of climate change, is 
needed. As a first step in conducting such a comprehensive 
assessment, the Committee believes that there should be a 
scientific gap analysis conducted by an independent entity, 
such as the National Research Council, to assess existing 
scientific information and identify additional information 
necessary to ensure adequate environmental review of proposed 
industrial activities in the region. This assessment should 
also include recommendations for obtaining the identified 
needed scientific information.
    The Committee supports the Administration's efforts to 
secure a balanced energy portfolio that carefully weighs what 
is in the best interest of our energy-dependent nation with 
what is in the best interest of our natural environment. Future 
coordinated efforts to pursue additional oil and gas resources 
in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) must include the 
opportunity to apply advanced technologies, be based on the 
best available science, and take into account the potential 
environmental impacts of such potential development. Therefore, 
the Committee directs the MMS, pursuant to the National 
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), to conduct a Programmatic 
Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) to evaluate potential 
significant environmental effects of multiple geological and 
geophysical activities on the Atlantic OCS. Earlier this year, 
the MMS issued its Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare such a 
PEIS and subsequently accepted public comments on the NOI. The 
Committee believes it is not only appropriate and timely for 
the MMS to move forward with the PEIS, it is also consistent 
with the Department's stated desire to fill in information gaps 
relating to resource potential in the OCS.

                           OIL SPILL RESEARCH
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................        $6,303,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................         6,303,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................         6,303,000
Comparison:
  Appropriation, 2009.................................                 0
  Budget estimate, 2010...............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $6,303,000 for oil spill research, 
the same as the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and the budget 
request. This funding is derived from the Oil Spill Liability 
Trust Fund, to conduct oil spill research and financial 
responsibility and inspection activities associated with the 
Oil Pollution Act of 1990, Public Law 101-380.
    Administrative provisions.--The Committee recommendation 
continues language from the fiscal year 2009 enacted bill on a 
legislative matter which deducts 2 percent of State royalties 
to help cover Federal administrative costs, resulting in a 
$49,000,000 scoring credit for the bill.

          Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement

    The Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement 
(OSMRE), through its regulation and technology account, 
regulates surface coal mining operations to ensure that the 
environment is reclaimed once mining is completed. The OSMRE 
accomplishes this mission by providing grants to those States 
that maintain their own regulatory and reclamation programs and 
by conducting oversight of State programs. Further, the OSMRE 
administers the regulatory programs in the States that do not 
have their own programs and on Federal and Tribal lands. 
Through its Abandoned Mine Land (AML) reclamation program, the 
OSMRE provides funding for environmental restoration at 
abandoned coal mines based on fees collected from current coal 
production operations. In their un-reclaimed condition these 
abandoned sites endanger public health and safety, and prevent 
the beneficial use of land and water resources. The Surface 
Mining Control and Reclamation Act amendments of 2006 
dramatically changed the manner in which AML funds are 
distributed.
    The amounts recommended by the Committee for each Office of 
Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement appropriation 
account, compared with the budget estimates by activity, are 
shown in the following table:

    The Committee recommends $127,280,000 for regulation and 
technology, as requested, $7,024,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level.

                    ABANDONED MINE RECLAMATION FUND

Comparison:
  Appropriation, 2009.................................       -12,358,000
  Budget estimate, 2010...............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $32,088,000 for the Abandoned Mine 
Reclamation Fund, as requested, $12,358,000 below the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level.
    The fiscal year 2009 enacted bill provided funding for the 
State emergency grants as a one-time bridge for States to 
utilize their mandatory funding for this purpose. This year, 
the Committee recommendation follows the Administration's 
request to eliminate the funding for these grants. The 
Committee understands that there are still unobligated funds 
from previous years for these emergency grants that will 
further assist the States in transitioning to mandatory 
funding.

                        Bureau of Indian Affairs

    The Bureau of Indian Affairs was founded in 1824 to 
establish a government-to-government relationship and trust 
responsibility that results from treaties with Native groups. 
The Bureau delivers services to over 1.7 million American 
Indians and Alaska Natives. In addition, the Bureau provides 
education programs to Native Americans through the operation of 
169 schools, and 14 dormitories. The Bureau administers more 
than 56 million acres of land held in trust status. Over 10 
million of these acres belong to individuals and 46 million 
acres are held in trust for Tribes.

                      OPERATION OF INDIAN PROGRAMS
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................    $2,128,630,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................     2,278,809,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................     2,300,099,000
Comparison:
  Appropriation, 2009.................................      +171,469,000
  Budget estimate, 2010...............................       +21,290,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The amounts recommended by the Committee compared with the 
budget estimates by activity are shown in the following table:
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

    Tribal Government.--The Committee recommends $422,862,000 
for Tribal Government activities, $20,331,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level and $6,290,000 above the budget 
request. The increase to the request is for contract support 
costs.
    Human Services.--The Committee recommends $136,996,000 for 
human services, as requested, $452,000 below the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level.
    The Committee notes that additional funding was provided 
for Native American housing programs in the American Recovery 
and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The Committee is concerned about 
the coordination of Federal housing programs for Native 
Americans and Alaska Natives. The Committee directs the 
Department of the Interior to work with the Department of 
Housing and Urban Development to clarify the roles and 
responsibilities of each Department and coordinate the delivery 
of housing programs to ensure maximum benefit and avoid 
duplicative efforts.
    Trust--Natural Resources Management.--The Committee 
recommends $174,768,000 for natural resources management, 
$27,058,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$14,000,000 above the budget request.
    Changes to the request include increases of $2,000,000 for 
fish, wildlife, and parks and $12,000,000 for rights 
protection.
    The Committee believes that the natural resource programs 
within the Bureau of Indian Affairs have been chronically 
underfunded. The Committee has provided additional resources in 
the rights protection program and hatcheries program to allow 
Tribes to respond to changing climates and conserve natural 
resources. The Bureau should use the increase provided for 
rights protection to continue ongoing programs carried out by 
Tribes and Tribal organizations that conserve native fisheries, 
manage Tribal wetlands, and conserve and manage natural 
resources. The increase provided for fish, wildlife, and parks 
is for fish hatchery operations.
    Trust--Real Estate Services.--The Committee recommends 
$152,493,000 for real estate services and oversight, as 
requested, $2,406,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    Education.--The Committee recommends $796,300,000 for 
education, as requested, $80,147,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level.
    Changes to the request include an increase of $2,000,000 
for student transportation and a decrease of $2,000,000 for 
post secondary programs. The Committee has agreed to the 
request to provide $50,000,000 to forward-fund the Tribal 
colleges and universities. The Committee understands that this 
is one-time funding that will be distributed to other Bureau 
programs in the next fiscal year.
    The Committee understands that the Choctaw Nation of 
Oklahoma's Jones Academy is one of the highest ranked schools 
in the State of Oklahoma. The Committee previously urged the 
Bureau to work to reinstate the academy in the Bureau school 
system. The Bureau has advised the Committee, however, that 
there could be substantial costs incurred if all academic 
programs or schools terminated by Federal action during the 
termination era were reinstated into the system. The Committee 
directs the Bureau to study and report to the Committee within 
180 days after the enactment of this Act on the impacts of 
allowing reinstatement of termination era academic programs or 
schools that were removed from the Bureau school system between 
1951 and 1972. The report should delineate the number of 
schools or academic programs at schools funded by the Federal 
government terminated during this era, whether those schools 
were terminated with the agreement or consent of the Tribal 
governing body (as then constituted), the financial impact of 
constructing a facility with Tribal resources and without 
Federal construction funds, and the increased costs to the 
Bureau if these schools were added to the system.
    Public Safety and Justice.--The Committee recommends 
$303,855,000 for public safety and justice, as requested, 
$33,070,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    For the past two years, the Committee has provided a 
substantial increase for law enforcement programs in Indian 
Country to begin to address the epidemic levels of sexual and 
domestic violence, substance abuse, and related criminal 
problems. The Committee applauds the Administration for 
requesting additional funds to continue to address this issue. 
The Committee directs the Department to do the following:
    
 Conduct meaningful and timely consultation with 
Tribal leaders and Tribal justice officials in the development 
of regulatory policies and other actions that affect public 
safety and justice in Indian Country.
    
 Participate, along with the Department of Justice, 
Tribal, and State officials in an interagency working group to 
clarify and resolve the law enforcement jurisdictional 
challenges that have hindered criminal investigations and 
prosecutions in Indian country, and to identify challenges and 
needs related to Tribal justice systems, including needs 
associated with secure law enforcement information sharing 
systems. The working group shall develop recommendations on how 
to streamline Federal, State and Tribal response to criminal 
investigations and prosecutions and shall submit a report to 
the Committee within 90 days of enactment of this Act. Among 
the goals established for the working group shall be the 
development of protocols to ensure that Federal law enforcement 
agencies that decline to initiate an investigation or that 
terminate an investigation of an alleged violation of Federal 
law in Indian country without referral for prosecution submit 
to the appropriate Tribal official a report describing the 
rationale for terminating the investigation; the type of crime 
alleged; the status of the alleged perpetrator; and the status 
of the victim. These protocols should also ensure that United 
States Attorneys coordinate with Tribal prosecutors 
sufficiently well in advance of prosecution deadlines mandated 
by the statute of limitations to permit Tribal prosecutors to 
pursue cases, as appropriate. The working group should also 
review and define the responsibilities of Assistant United 
States Attorneys serving as Tribal Liaisons in order to better 
coordinate the prosecution of crimes on reservations.
    
 Coordinate with the Department of Justice to 
develop a priority list for detention facility construction, 
targeting Tribal areas with the greatest need, and work with 
Justice to incorporate the priority system into the ranking 
criteria for detention center grants.
    
 Work with the Department of Justice to develop a 
voluntary annual training program for Tribal court officials 
and judges to promote improvements in Tribal judicial systems.
    
 Engage the services of the Office of Inspector 
General to ensure funds are spent wisely, goals and objectives 
for performance are established, and program results are 
measured. This evaluation should be used to refine the 
allocation of fiscal and human resources to have the greatest 
impact on reducing crime.
    Community and Economic Development.--The Committee 
recommends $44,910,000 for community and economic development, 
$1,321,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$1,000,000 above the request.
    The Committee has provided an increase of $1,000,000 for 
the community development program. These funds should be used 
for job training programs that promote training and 
apprenticeship opportunities for Native Americans in the 
carpentry, electrical, plumbing, ironworking, welding, and 
other construction trades.
    Executive Direction and Administration Services.--The 
Committee recommends $267,915,000, as requested, $7,588,000 
above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.

                              CONSTRUCTION

    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                0*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    Education.--The Committee recommends $112,994,000 for 
education construction, as requested, $15,843,000 below the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    Public Safety and Justice.--The Committee recommends 
$39,407,000 for public safety and justice construction, as 
requested, $8,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    The Committee is pleased that the Administration retained 
funding added in fiscal year 2009 for detention center 
construction. The Committee urges the Bureau to work closely 
with the Department of Justice on a comprehensive detention 
center program that complements their detention center grant 
program. Additionally, the Bureau should construct justice 
centers where practicable, that integrate Tribal law 
enforcement facilities, Tribal court facilities and detention 
centers in the same location.
    Resources Management.--The Committee recommends $38,385,000 
for resources management construction, as requested $1,921,000 
below the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    General Administration.--The Committee recommends 
$2,064,000 for general administration, $4,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level and the same as the budget request.
    Construction Management.--The Committee recommends 
$7,150,000 for construction management, as requested, $64,000 
above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.

    The Committee recommends $47,380,000 for Indian land and 
water claim settlements and miscellaneous payments to Indians, 
as requested, $25,753,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level.

                 INDIAN GUARANTEED LOAN PROGRAM ACCOUNT
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................        $8,186,000

  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $8,215,000 for the Indian 
guaranteed loan program account, as requested, $29,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.

                   INDIAN LAND CONSOLIDATION ACCOUNT

    The Committee recommends $3,000,000 for the Indian Land 
Consolidation account, as requested, $3,000,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level. This program was previously 
administered in the Office of Special Trustee for American 
Indians.

    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +11,680,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $118,836,000 for salaries and 
expenses for the Office of the Secretary, as requested, 
$11,680,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The 
Committee has included language regarding appraisal services in 
the front of this report.
    The Committee understands that the relationship between the 
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of the 
Interior concerning the law enforcement activities on the 
Southwest border has improved. The DHS has worked closely with 
the Federal land managers on fence construction, daily patrol 
and interdiction activities, and the siting of surveillance and 
radio equipment. However, the public lands along the Southwest 
border contain some of the most environmentally diverse and 
sensitive habitats in the United States and must be protected 
and enhanced for future generations. To further protect the 
environment and improve the situation on the Southwest border, 
the Committee encourages the Department to work with the DHS to 
do the following:
    
 Partner with the DHS to provide training for 
border patrol agents in the Southwest on the mission and 
management of Federal public lands that are adjacent to the 
Southwest border. The Department should also provide training 
on basic environmental stewardship and natural resource 
management principles that would benefit border patrol agents 
in their daily patrol and interdiction activities on 
environmentally sensitive public lands.
    
 Work with the DHS to begin section 7 endangered 
species consultation on the daily operational, patrol and 
interdiction activities of the border patrol.
    
 Work with the public lands managers and the Tohono 
O'Odham Nation to develop a plan for removing the massive 
amounts of trash left behind by undocumented immigrants. The 
Department should work with DHS to establish a trash removal 
fund that could be accessed by public land managers and the 
Tohono O'Odham Nation to remove trash in the highest priority 
environmentally sensitive areas.
    
 Work to improve radio dispatch and 
interoperability for Federal law enforcement officers that 
patrol public lands in the Southwest, including ensuring that 
there are dispatch services available twenty-four hours a day.

                            INSULAR AFFAIRS

                       ASSISTANCE TO TERRITORIES

    The Office of Insular Affairs (OIA) was established on 
August 4, 1995, through Secretarial Order No. 3191, which also 
abolished the former Office of Territorial and International 
Affairs. The OIA has important responsibilities to help the 
United States government fulfill its responsibilities to the 
four U.S. territories of Guam, American Samoa (AS), U.S. Virgin 
Islands (USVI) and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana 
Islands (CNMI) and also the three freely associated States: the 
Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), the Republic of the 
Marshall Islands (RMI) and the Republic of Palau. The permanent 
and trust fund payments to the territories and the compact 
nations provide substantial financial resources to these 
governments. During fiscal year 2004 new financial arrangements 
for the Compacts of Free Association with the FSM and the RMI 
were implemented; this also included mandatory payments for 
certain activities previously provided in discretionary 
appropriations as well as Compact impact payments of 
$30,000,000 per year split among Guam, CNMI, AS, and Hawaii. 
During fiscal year 2009 permanent funding of $359,477,000 will 
be made available to these governments in addition to the 
discretionary funding discussed below.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $78,665,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        81,077,000

    The amounts recommended by the Committee for the Office of 
Insular Affairs appropriations accounts compared with the 
budget estimates by activity are shown in the following table:
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

    The Committee recommends $83,995,000 for assistance to 
territories, $5,330,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $2,918,000 above the budget request.
    Territorial Assistance.--The Committee recommends 
$33,523,000 for territorial assistance, $5,330,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $2,918,000 above the budget 
request. The Committee recommendation has discontinued specific 
funding for the Insular management controls subactivity but has 
transferred the funding to the technical assistance 
subactivity. The Office of Insular Affairs is encouraged to 
continue the management controls effort using technical 
assistance funding as appropriate. The recommendation fully 
funds the requested increase of $2,000,000 to begin to respond 
to the tremendous need for infrastructure in Guam as the 
military build-up proceeds. The recommendation includes a 
$900,000 increase for critically needed wastewater system 
repairs and improvements in the U.S. Virgin Islands as mandated 
by consent decree. The Committee has also added $2,018,000 to 
the technical assistance subactivity for high priority projects 
and $369,000 for the brown tree snake control and research 
effort, which is vital to protect islands throughout the 
Pacific.
    The Committee supports the Administration proposal to 
reestablish the position of Assistant Secretary for Insular 
Affairs; however the funding of this office should not come out 
of the limited resources of the Office of Insular Affairs. The 
new officer should be funded in a manner similar to the other 
Interior Department assistant secretaries.
    American Samoa.--The Committee recommends $22,752,000 for 
American Samoa operations as requested, the same as the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level.
    Northern Mariana Islands/Covenant Grants.--The Committee 
recommends $27,720,000 for CNMI covenant grants as requested, 
the same as the budget request.

    The Committee recommends $5,318,000 for the Compact of Free 
Association as requested, the same as the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level.

               ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISION, INSULAR AFFAIRS

    The Committee recommendation includes bill language under 
this heading which is similar to language requested under both 
the Assistance to Territories and the Compact of Free 
Association accounts. This language will allow the Interior 
Department to transfer certain funds designated for Guam to the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture, when requested by the Governor 
of Guam, as a subsidy for direct or guaranteed rural 
development loans to Guam for construction and repair projects. 
During the next ten years, the military will be moving major 
facilities and personnel to Guam, which will result in 
tremendous impacts on the island's infrastructure. This 
language, which does not supplant any existing USDA authority, 
will help the government of Guam respond to this unprecedented 
change.

             OFFICE OF SPECIAL TRUSTEE FOR AMERICAN INDIANS

                         FEDERAL TRUST PROGRAMS

    The Office of Special Trustee for American Indians was 
established by the American Indian Trust Fund Management Reform 
Act of 1994 (Public Law 103-412). The Special Trustee is 
charged with general oversight of Indian trust asset reform 
efforts Department-wide to ensure proper and efficient 
discharge of the Secretary's trust responsibilities to Indian 
Tribes and individual Indians. The Office of the Special 
Trustee was created to ensure that the Department of the 
Interior establishes appropriate policies and procedures, 
develops necessary systems, and takes affirmative actions to 
reform the management of Indian trust funds. In carrying out 
the management and oversight of the Indian trust funds, the 
Secretary has a responsibility to ensure that trust accounts 
are properly maintained, invested and reported in accordance 
with the American Indian Trust Fund Management Reform Act of 
1994, Congressional action, and other applicable laws.
    The Special Trustee for American Indians also has 
responsibility for the related financial trust functions 
including deposit, investment, and disbursement of trust funds. 
The Department has responsibility for what may be the largest 
land trust in the world. Indian trust lands today encompass 
approximately 56 million acres of land--over 10 million acres 
belonging to individual Indians and nearly 46 million acres 
owned by Indian Tribes. On these lands, the Interior Department 
manages over 100,000 leases for individual Indians and Tribes. 
Leasing, use permits, sale revenues, and investment income of 
over $460 million per year are collected into over 378,000 
individual Indian money accounts, and almost $506 million per 
year is collected into approximately 1,800 Tribal accounts. In 
addition, the trust manages approximately $2.9 billion in 
Tribal funds and $444 million in individual Indian funds.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................      $181,648,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       185,984,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       185,984,000

    Appropriation, 2009...............................        +4,336,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $185,984,000 for Federal Trust 
programs, as requested, $4,336,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level.
    Indian Tribes routinely experience lengthy delays in 
obtaining appraisals from the Department for transactions 
involving the conveyance of Indian trust lands. The Bureau of 
Indian Affairs is responsible for requesting appraisals and the 
Office of the Special Trustee is responsible for procuring the 
appraisals. Appraisals are required for Indian Tribes and 
individual Indians to sell, acquire or exchange interests in 
trust land. Delays in obtaining appraisals also delay these 
transactions, which negatively impacts Tribal economies. The 
Committee encourages the Office of the Special Trustee and the 
Bureau of Indian Affairs to reevaluate how appraisals are 
requested and prepared for Indian trust lands and provide 
recommendations to the Committee on how these delays can be 
minimized.
    Bill Language.--As in previous fiscal years, the Committee 
has included bill language under the Office of Special Trustee 
that limits the amount of funding available for historical 
accounting to $56,536,000.

                        Department-Wide Programs


                        Wildland Fire Management

    The Bureau's wildland fire management account supports fire 
activities for all Departmental bureaus, including the Bureau 
of Land Management, the National Park Service, the Fish and 
Wildlife Service, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Before 
fiscal year 2009 this account was within the Bureau of Land 
Management appropriation.

                        WILDLAND FIRE MANAGEMENT

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................      $859,453,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       899,780,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       932,780,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +73,327,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................      +33,000,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $932,780,000 for wildland fire 
management at the Department of the Interior, $73,327,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 non-emergency enacted level and 
$33,000,000 above the budget request. A total of $34,606,000 of 
this increase is for suppression activities. This discussion 
does not include the additional $75,000,000 provided for the 
emergency wildfire suppression contingency reserve fund. 
Additional discussion of wildfire issues is included in the 
front of this report. The amounts recommended by the Committee 
compared with the budget estimates by activity are shown in the 
following table:
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

    Wildfire Preparedness.--The Committee recommends 
$290,452,000 for wildfire preparedness, $8,685,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $5,000,000 above the budget 
request. The increase is provided for fixed cost changes. The 
Committee believes that the Department and the Forest Service 
must work together, along with States and other partners, to 
maintain sufficient readiness with the preparedness program. 
The Committee expects that the Department will do its utmost to 
maintain wildfire suppression capability at least at the same 
levels as in fiscal years 2008 and 2009. The Department should 
immediately notify the Committees on Appropriations if it 
appears that funding shortfalls may limit needed firefighting 
capacity.
    Wildfire Suppression Operations.--The Committee recommends 
$369,797,000 for fire suppression operations as requested, 
$34,606,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The 
Committee recommendation fully meets the 10-year average 
expenditure on emergency and discretionary funded suppression 
actions which actually occurred, adjusted up for inflation. The 
Committee encourages the Administration and the Congress to 
provide better advance budgetary planning during the summer 
wildfire season so extra emergency resources can be provided if 
required.
    The Committee remains concerned about the high costs of 
large fire incidents. The Department of the Interior, along 
with the Forest Service, should ensure that cost containment is 
an important priority when suppressing wildland fires. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Department of the Interior 
and the Forest Service to continue reports required previously 
and to examine, using independent panels, any individual 
wildfire incident which results in expenses greater than 
$10,000,000.
    Other Wildland Fire Management Operations.--The Committee 
recommends $272,531,000 for other national fire plan wildland 
fire operations, $30,036,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $28,000,000 above the request. The Committee 
recommends increasing the hazardous fuels reduction program by 
$28,000,000 over the request. Other subactivities are funded at 
the requested levels.

WILDLAND FIRE SUPPRESSION CONTINGENCY RESERVE FUND (INCLUDING TRANSFER 
                               OF FUNDS)
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................                 0
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       $75,000,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................        75,000,000

    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +75,000,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $75,000,000 for the newly created 
wildland fire suppression contingency reserve fund as 
requested. The Committee notes that the recommended bill also 
has increased base funding for suppression activities by 
$34,606,000 to a total of $369,797,000 for fire suppression 
operations at the Interior Department, as requested, an 
increase of 10 percent. The combined wildfire suppression 
funding for the Interior Department is $444,797,000, a 44 
percent increase over the fiscal year 2009 base appropriation. 
The Committee also notes that H.R. 2346, the Supplemental 
Appropriations Act, 2009, includes another $50,000,000 for 
Interior Department emergency wildfire suppression activities.
    As requested by the Administration, the amounts in this 
fund may only be transferred if the President has issued a 
finding that the amounts are necessary for emergency fire 
suppression.
    The Committee notes that its recommendation also includes 
another $1,128,505,000 for the USDA Forest Service as base 
suppression funding and an additional $282,000,000 for a 
similar contingency account. Thus, the Committee recommendation 
for both wildfire suppression accounts in both departments is 
$1,855,302,000, which is a 40 percent increase over the fiscal 
year 2009 non-emergency level.
    The Committee notes that the Federal Land Assistance, 
Management and Enhancement Act (FLAME Act) passed the House in 
March 2009. That Act authorizes a supplemental funding source 
for catastrophic emergency wildland fire suppression activities 
on Department of the Interior and National Forest System lands. 
If the FLAME Act is authorized, the Committee will work with 
the Administration and others to make this new wildfire 
suppression contingency fund compatible with the new FLAME Act 
funding procedures.

    The Committee recommends $10,175,000 for the central 
hazardous materials fund as requested, $27,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level.

           Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration


                NATURAL RESOURCE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT FUND

    The Committee recommends $6,462,000 for the natural 
resource damage assessment fund, as requested, $124,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.

                          Working Capital Fund

    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $85,823,000 for the working 
capital fund, the requested level, and $12,338,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The Committee has also provided 
the Administrative provision, as requested, governing 
acquisition of certain aircraft.

               TITLE II--ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was created by 
Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1970, which consolidated nine 
programs from five different agencies and departments. Major 
EPA programs include air and water quality, drinking water, 
hazardous waste, research, pesticides, radiation, toxic 
substances, enforcement and compliance assurance, pollution 
prevention, oil spills, Superfund, Brownfields, and the Leaking 
Underground Storage Tank program. In addition, EPA provides 
Federal assistance for wastewater treatment, sewer overflow 
control, drinking water facilities, other water infrastructure 
projects, and diesel emission reduction projects. The Agency is 
responsible for conducting research and development, 
establishing environmental standards through the use of risk 
assessment and cost-benefit, monitoring pollution conditions, 
seeking compliance through enforcement actions, managing audits 
and investigations, and providing technical assistance and 
grant support to States and Tribes, which are delegated 
authority for much of the program implementation. Under 
existing statutory authority, the Agency contributes to 
specific homeland security efforts and may participate in 
international environmental activities.
    Among the statutes for which the Environmental Protection 
Agency has sole or significant oversight responsibilities are:
    National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended.
    Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, as 
amended.
    Toxic Substances Control Act, as amended.
    Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as amended.
    Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, as amended.
    Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act of 1972, 
as amended.
    Oil Pollution Act of 1990.
    Public Health Service Act (Title XIV), as amended.
    Solid Waste Disposal Act, as amended.
    Clean Air Act, as amended.
    Safe Drinking Water Act, as amended.
    Great Lakes Legacy Act of 2002.
    Bioterrorism Act of 2002.
    Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and 
Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended.
    Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields 
Revitalization Act of 2002 (amending CERCLA).
    Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986.
    Pollution Prevention Act of 1990.
    Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, as amended.
    Pollution Prosecution Act of 1990.
    Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2003.
    Energy Policy Act of 2005.
    Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.
    For fiscal year 2010, the Committee recommends 
$10,569,962,000 for the Environmental Protection Agency, 
$2,934,288,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$83,962,000 above the budget request. The Committee is pleased 
to see that the request sustains many of the important 
increases it added to the Agency's budget in fiscal years 2008 
and 2009. The amounts recommended by the Committee are changes 
to the request. Comparison to the budget request and 2009 
enacted levels are shown by account, program area and selected 
activity in the following table.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

    Reprogrammings.--The Agency is held to the bill-wide 
reprogramming limitation of $1,000,000. This limitation will be 
applied to each program area in every account at the levels 
provided in the detailed table above. This will allow the 
Agency the flexibility to reprogram funds within a set program 
area. However, where the Committee has cited funding levels for 
certain program-projects or activities within a program area, 
the reprogramming limitation continues to apply to those 
funding levels. The other guidelines laid out in the 
``Reprogramming Guidelines'' section of the Committee's Report 
continue to be in effect.
    Congressional Budget Justification.--The Committee directs 
the Agency to include in future Justifications the following 
items: (1) a comprehensive index of programs and activities 
within the program-projects; (2) the requested bill language, 
with changes highlighted, at the beginning of each account 
section; and, (3) a justification for every program/project, 
including those proposed for elimination.
    Workforce Planning.--The Committee notes that EPA has not 
systematically sought to align changes in workload with its 
staff allocations. The Government Accountability Office 
reported to the Committee that ``. . . in preparing requests 
for funding and staffing, EPA makes incremental adjustments, 
largely based on an antiquated workforce planning system that 
does not reflect a bottom-up review of the nature or 
distribution of the current workload.'' Given the work facing 
the Agency over the next few years, the Committee believes it 
is imperative that the Agency improve its funding and staffing 
models. The Committee directs the Agency to identify the 
factors that derive the national and regional workload and 
develop more realistic allocation systems for deploying staff 
with the requisite skills and capabilities to areas of the 
country where they are most needed to address the highest-
priority needs. The Agency is also directed to provide 
quarterly updates on its progress in meeting this directive.

                         SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

    The Science and Technology (S&T) account funds all 
Environmental Protection Agency research (including Superfund 
research activities paid with funds moved into this account 
from the Hazardous Substance Superfund account). This account 
includes programs carried out through grants, contracts, and 
cooperative agreements with other Federal agencies, States, 
universities, and private business, as well as in-house 
research. It also funds personnel compensation and benefits, 
travel, supplies and operating expenses, including rent, 
utilities and security, for all Agency research. Research 
addresses a wide range of environmental and health concerns 
across all environmental media and encompasses both long-term 
basic and near-term applied research to provide the scientific 
knowledge and technologies necessary for preventing, 
regulating, and abating pollution, and to anticipate emerging 
environmental issues.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................      $790,051,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       842,349,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       849,649,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +59,598,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................        +7,300,000
    The Committee recommends $849,649,000 for science and 
technology, $59,598,000 above the fiscal 2009 enacted level and 
$7,300,000 above the budget request. The Committee recommends 
that $26,834,000, as requested by the President, be paid to 
this account from the Hazardous Substance Superfund account for 
ongoing research activities consistent with the intent of the 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and 
Liability Act of 1980, as amended. The changes to the request, 
as recommended by the Committee, appear in the table at the 
beginning of this title. The Committee provides the following 
additional detail by program area.
    Air Toxics and Quality.--The Committee recommends 
$122,256,000 as requested, $17,124,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level. Within this amount, the Committee has 
provided the requested levels for the CASTNET program 
($3,951,000) and the TIME-LTM program ($720,000), which has 
moved from the Research: Human Health and Ecosystems program 
into this program. The Committee supports the Agency's work on 
the renewable fuels standard, and has provided the request of 
$21,327,000. The Committee directs that at least $10,300,000 be 
available for lab capacity and upgrades and $5,000,000 for 
implementation and compliance of the rule.
    Climate Protection Program.--The Committee recommends 
$20,575,000 for the Clean Automotive Technology and Fuel Cell 
and Hydrogen programs, $3,747,000 above the 2009 enacted level 
and $1,600,000 above the request. The Committee continues to 
support this important program and looks forward to the 
hydraulic hybrid technology achieving initial commercialization 
in 2010.
    Homeland Security.--The Committee recommends $66,332,000 
for Homeland Security, $2,614,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $5,000,000 below the request. Within this 
amount, the Committee provides $18,726,000 for the Water 
Security Initiative, which is a 25 percent increase above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    Research: Clean Air.--The Committee recommends $104,073,000 
as requested, $5,646,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level. This includes the requested level of $20,909,000 for 
Global Change Research. The Committee supports the Agency's 
efforts to expand its projections on the effects of climate 
change on air and water quality and how it will affect 
attainment of air and water quality standards nation-wide. The 
Committee expects the Agency to use a portion of these funds to 
evaluate alternative strategies for reducing greenhouse gas 
emissions.
    Research: Clean Water.--The Committee recommends 
$110,363,000 as requested, $4,199,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level. The Committee directs the Agency to use the 
majority of the increase above the prior year to expand 
research on green (water) infrastructure, including assessment 
and development of scientifically rigorous tools and models for 
use by EPA and State water programs. Because 20 percent of the 
State Revolving Funds provided in the American Recovery and 
Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and in this bill are targeted to green 
infrastructure, it is important that the Agency develop 
technical information to help quantify the environmental 
benefits of various types of green infrastructure and their 
contribution towards compliance with environmental standards.
    Research: Priorities.--The Committee recommends $5,700,000 
to support a select number of programs, which provide 
significant national or regional benefits, and provides funding 
for the following grants:
          Water Environment Research Foundation, $2,000,000;
          Water Research Foundation, $1,700,000;
          Southwest Consortium for Environmental Research, 
        $1,000,000; and,
          Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research, 
        $1,000,000.
    Research: Human Health and Ecosystems.--The Committee 
recommends $250,381,000, which is $20,978,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level and $5,000,000 above the budget 
request. Within the total provided, the Committee directs that 
at least $11,422,000 be for Endocrine Disruptor Research. The 
Committee also has included an additional $2,000,000 to fund 
four new centers of excellence for children's environmental 
health. These funds will allow the Agency to fully fund its 
request for proposals at approximately $500,000 a year, rather 
than the lower amount planned. Because many children spend more 
than 40 hours a week in child care, the Committee urges that 
one of the four centers focus on child care settings. The 
Committee directs the Agency to use the remaining $3,000,000 
increase to accelerate research on the effects on children from 
environmental chemicals and toxins.
    The Committee heard testimony this year concerning the need 
to more fully consider impacts to children when developing 
environmental policy and setting public health standards. Every 
day, children are exposed to a mix of chemicals, most of which 
have not been tested specifically for effects on children's 
still developing systems. Because children are more vulnerable 
than adults to toxic chemicals, the Committee believes it is 
important to address this issue and commends the Agency for its 
initiative to monitor air toxics around schools. The Committee 
directs the Agency to continue its efforts to protect children 
from environmental hazards, such as expanding its knowledge of 
children's exposure in child care and school settings and the 
impact of these exposures on children's health and development.
    The Committee notes that it also has provided the requested 
level for the Human Health Risk Assessments program, which 
includes a $5,783,000 and 10 FTE increase above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level for the Integrated Risk Information System 
(IRIS) Health Assessments. The Committee directs the Agency to 
use a portion of these funds to expedite its risk assessment 
for trichloroethylene (TCE). The Committee expects that the 
increase, coupled with the revised IRIS process announced by 
the Administrator on May 21, 2009, will allow the Agency to 
expedite these long delayed reviews. The Committee supports the 
new process which it believes will increase transparency and 
reduce delays in finalizing assessments.
    Additional Guidance.--The Committee has included the 
following additional guidance with respect to funding provided 
under this account.
    Science to Achieve Results (STAR) across the Science and 
Technology Account.--The Committee notes that EPA research is a 
critical part of the Agency's mission. This includes the work 
of EPA scientists and engineers complemented by university 
based researchers. The budget request includes a 4 percent 
increase in the STAR program. This is a competitively awarded, 
independently peer reviewed grants program designed to ensure 
that the Agency is able to engage the best researchers outside 
EPA in a number of scientific and engineering disciplines. The 
Committee expects the request for this program to increase each 
year until the program is restored to its historic levels.
    Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) Study.--The 
Committee continues to believe it is important that the Agency 
study human health effects and ecosystem impacts from exposure 
to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons through parking lot seal-
coatings. The Committee directs the Agency to report on its 
efforts to the Committee.
    Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB) Study.--The Committee is 
aware of concerns about the public health impacts of 
polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) frequently used in window 
caulking in schools, public housing, hospitals, and other 
public buildings from the 1940s to 1977. The Committee urges 
the Agency to investigate the potential adverse health and 
environmental impacts of PCBs, with a special focus on school 
populations, and to recommend testing protocols and remediation 
techniques to mitigate these effects.
    Contaminants in Water Supply.--The Committee recognizes the 
potential harm to human health and the environment caused by 
Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) in our nation's water 
supply. CECs include endocrine disrupting compounds, additives 
to personal care products, and industrial contaminants. Though 
there have been hundreds of studies on CECs over the past 
decade, the scientific community still lacks an understanding 
of the level of CECs in our environment and their impacts on 
human health and ecosystems. Years of research have resulted in 
piecemeal efforts, focused on a subset of compounds or a single 
effect in one location. The Committee encourages the Agency to 
develop a plan that synthesizes this body of research and 
applies a systems approach to this problem.
    Air Quality Research.--The Committee encourages EPA to 
establish a competitively awarded, national research facility 
that would be made available for use by U.S. industry, 
universities, other national laboratories, State and local 
governments, and the scientific community in general and would 
help address many of the issues relating to particulate matter, 
ozone, and atmospheric transformations, and their modeling, and 
monitoring. The Committee notes the need for additional air 
quality research such as that conducted at the University of 
California, Riverside in its second generation atmospheric 
chamber.
    Hydraulic Fracturing.--The Committee is concerned about the 
risks posed to drinking water from hydraulic fracturing. The 
Committee questions whether past reviews by the Agency relied 
on independent sources of information and the best available 
science. The Committee urges EPA to review the risks that 
hydraulic fracturing poses to drinking water supplies, using 
the best available science, as well as independent sources of 
information.
    Mickey Leland National Urban Air Toxics Research Center.--
The Committee notes the valuable work of the Mickey Leland 
National Urban Air Toxics Research Center (the NUATRC), 
authorized by Congress in the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 
(Title III, Sect. 112(p)). Since incorporating in 1991, the 
NUATRC has sponsored scientific research and development that 
has furthered the understanding of the human health effects 
caused by exposure to air toxics. The Committee is concerned 
that, despite the Center being fully authorized by Congress, 
the Administration has not included funding for the NUATRC in 
the budget for the Environmental Protection Agency. Given the 
concern of the human health threat of air toxics, the record of 
contribution by the Center, and the need for additional 
scientific understanding to appropriately address air toxics, 
the Committee urges the Administration to fully evaluate 
including funding for the NUATRC in future year budget 
requests.

                 ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMS AND MANAGEMENT

    The Environmental Programs and Management account 
encompasses a broad range of abatement, prevention, 
enforcement, and compliance activities, and personnel 
compensation, benefits, travel, and expenses for all programs 
of the Agency except Science and Technology, Hazardous 
Substance Superfund, Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust 
Fund, Oil Spill Response, and the Office of Inspector General.
    Abatement, prevention, and compliance activities include 
setting environmental standards, issuing permits, monitoring 
emissions and ambient conditions and providing technical and 
legal assistance toward enforcement, compliance, and oversight. 
In most cases, the States are directly responsible for actual 
operation of the various environmental programs, and the 
Agency's activities include oversight and assistance.
    In addition to program costs, this account funds 
administrative costs associated with the operating programs of 
the Agency, including support for executive direction, policy 
oversight, resources management, general office and building 
services for program operations, and direct implementation of 
Agency environmental programs for headquarters, the ten EPA 
regional offices, and all non-research field operations.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................    $2,392,079,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................     2,940,564,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................     3,022,054,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................      +629,975,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................       +81,490,000
    The Committee recommends $3,022,054,000 for environmental 
programs and management, $629,975,000 above the 2009 enacted 
level and $81,490,000 above the budget request. The changes to 
the request, as recommended by the Committee, appear in the 
table at the beginning of this title. The Committee provides 
the following additional detail by program area:
    Air Toxics and Quality.--Within the amount provided, the 
Committee directs the Agency to spend not less than the request 
for the Sunwise program. The Committee also has provided the 
request for the air toxics monitoring at schools program.
    Brownfields.--The Committee recommends $24,579,000 for this 
program, $1,622,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level 
and $675,000 below the budget request. Within this amount, the 
Committee provides $1,246,000 for the Smart Growth program. The 
Committee has provided funds for five additional FTEs, rather 
than the requested 10, to manage recent increases in this grant 
program.
    Climate Protection.--The Committee recommends $111,634,000 
as requested for this program, $17,363,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level. From within the new total, the 
Committee directs the following program amounts: (1) 
$50,748,000 for the Energy Star program; (2) $17,005,000 for 
continued development and operation of the Greenhouse Gas 
Registry; and (3) $4,582,000 for the Methane-to-Markets 
program.
    Enforcement.--The Committee recommends $223,943,000 as 
requested, $14,786,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level. From within this amount, the Committee directs no less 
than $7,203,000 for Environmental Justice programs.
    Environmental Protection/Priorities.--The Committee 
recommends $16,950,000 above the request. The Committee 
continues to support a select number of programs, which provide 
significant national or regional benefits, and provides funding 
for the following grants:
          National Rural Water Association, $13,000,000;
          Rural Community Assistance Program, $2,500,000;
          Water Systems Council, Wellcare, $700,000; and,
          National Biosolids Partnership, $750,000.
    Geographic Programs.--The Committee recommends $628,941,000 
for these programs, which is $532,982,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $77,811,000 above the budget request. 
This amount provides the request for the Community Action for a 
Renewed Environment Program and the Geographic Program: Other 
activities. The Committee, again this year, has provided 
increases to programs that support restoration and protection 
of our nation's most important water bodies. Protection of 
these resources has been a priority for the Committee, which is 
pleased that the President's Budget recognizes this initiative 
by requesting significant increases. These funds, coupled with 
increases provided elsewhere for the National Estuaries 
Program, continue the Committee's commitment to protect one of 
our nation's most important natural resources, water. The 
Committee has included bill language specifying the amount 
available for the programs funded in this area. From within the 
amount provided, the Committee directs the following 
allocation:
    Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.--$475,000,000 for the 
new Great Lakes Restoration Initiative as requested. Included 
in this amount is funding for the Agency's Great Lakes National 
Program Office and its work to implement the Great Lakes Legacy 
Act.
    The Committee fully supports the Administration's efforts 
to restore the Great Lakes and has included the President's 
request of $475,000,000 for the Great Lakes Restoration 
Initiative to fund an interagency restoration effort, led by 
the Environmental Protection Agency. The Committee expects EPA 
to use these funds to implement portions of the Great Lakes 
Collaboration Strategy. Once final funding allocations are 
made, EPA is directed to report those decisions to the 
Committee and to notify the Committee of any subsequent changes 
during the period these funds are available for obligation.
    The Committee directs EPA to use funds provided to 
implement the Great Lakes Legacy Act to support the Great Lakes 
National Program Office and supplement and expand programs 
beyond those undertaken in the prior fiscal years. Because the 
Administration's initiative proposes EPA as the lead agency, 
with all funding flowing through EPA, the request includes over 
$130,000,000 for agencies not usually funded through the 
Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Subcommittee. The 
Committee, therefore, directs the EPA to work with other 
Federal agencies to ensure that funds transferred through 
interagency agreements are used to increase each Agency's level 
of effort by supplementing and expanding existing programs. 
Additionally, of the funds provided, the Committee directs that 
a substantial portion be provided for restoration activities 
conducted by non-federal partners. The Committee directs EPA 
and the other Federal agencies to exercise maximum flexibility 
in determining non-federal match requirements in recognition of 
the exceptional economic circumstances and the significant 
ongoing investments made by non-federal partners.
    The Committee directs EPA to work with other Federal 
agencies, Great Lakes area governors, mayors, Tribal leaders, 
regional organizations and other stakeholders to establish a 
process to provide advice, guidance and recommendations and 
that will assist EPA in fiscal year 2011 and future years. To 
meet this directive, EPA should:
          (1) Develop a comprehensive, multi-year restoration 
        action plan that will lead to the restoration of the 
        Great Lakes;
          (2) Engage an independent, scientific panel or panels 
        to review the scientific credibility of the restoration 
        plan;
          (3) Assure that the Great Lakes restoration 
        initiative's goals, objectives and targets are aligned 
        with those of the Great Lakes States, local and Tribal 
        governments;
          (4) Make annual decisions on restoration priorities, 
        activities, projects and funding levels; and,
          (5) Establish a mechanism for monitoring and 
        reporting on progress.
    As mentioned above, the Committee directs EPA to develop a 
comprehensive restoration action plan using the 2005 
Collaboration Strategy as its base. This plan should help to 
inform funding decisions in fiscal year 2011 and the outyears 
and should include the following:
          (1) An explanation of the process established by EPA 
        to collaborate with States and non-federal partners to 
        guide implementation of the restoration initiative;
          (2) Targets and measurable objectives that the Great 
        Lakes Restoration Initiative expects to achieve over 
        the next five fiscal years beginning in fiscal year 
        2010;
          (3) A description of the process that the Great Lakes 
        Restoration Initiative will use to track and measure 
        progress, including an explanation of the means by 
        which EPA will use scientific research to target 
        restoration priorities and adapt and modify activities 
        in fiscal years 2011;
          (4) A description of the funding provided by the 
        Committee to EPA and other Federal agencies to support 
        Great Lakes restoration activities, including 
        information comparing funding and programs supported 
        from one year to the next (e.g. in fiscal year 2009 to 
        programs in fiscal year 2010); and
          (5) A description of efforts to coordinate 
        restoration activities in the U.S. with those of the 
        Canadian and provincial governments.
    Chesapeake Bay.--$50,000,000 for the Chesapeake Bay 
Program. The Committee has provided an increase of $14,861,000 
above the budget request. From within this amount, the 
Committee has fully funded the $17,511,000 request for the 
Agency's program office and provides at least $8,000,000 to 
nutrient and sediment removal grants and $2,000,000 for small 
watershed grants. The Committee recommends this funding level 
to improve and accelerate the performance of Federal and State 
programs to protect the Chesapeake Bay. EPA's most recent 
monitoring data concluded that the Chesapeake Bay watershed is 
attaining only 21 percent of its water quality goals, and that 
its largest challenge remains controlling polluted runoff from 
urban, suburban and agricultural lands. The Committee is 
encouraged by Executive Order 13508 and supports its direction 
to EPA to fully utilize its authorities under the Clean Water 
Act to protect and restore water quality and the commitment to 
increase enforcement and compliance activities in the 
watershed.
    The Committee directs that the increase be used to 
strengthen the regulatory and accountability programs for 
controlling pollution from urban, suburban and agricultural 
lands. This direction is consistent with the recent findings of 
the EPA Inspector General and the Government Accountability 
Office. The Committee further directs the Agency to re-examine 
its existing Chesapeake Bay grant programs to assess how best 
to increase the States' capacity to strengthen their regulatory 
and accountability programs administered under the Clean Water 
Act. After the Agency conducts this re-examination, a portion 
of the increase should be provided to the States. Finally, in 
light of this increase, the Agency is directed to provide the 
Committee with a detailed report within 30 days of enactment of 
this act on its anticipated spending for the 2010 fiscal year.
    Puget Sound.--$50,000,000 for implementation of the Puget 
Sound Action Agenda. The Agency is directed to provide a grant 
of $4,000,000 to the Puget Sound Ecosystem Research Initiative 
at the University of Washington's College of the Environment to 
conduct, coordinate, and disseminate scientific research to 
inform policy decisions necessary to carry out the Action 
Agenda. The remaining funds should be used for the Agency's 
intramural costs, cooperative agreements, interagency 
agreements, contracts and competitive grants, including a 
competitive grant for a State entity to manage implementation 
of the Action Agenda. Prior to announcing any requests for 
proposals for competitive grants, the Committee expects the 
Agency to coordinate with the State on priorities for funding 
requests for proposals, except where the State is expected to 
compete for said grant.
    Long Island Sound.--$15,000,000 for implementation of the 
Long Island Sound Restoration Act and the Long Island Sound 
Stewardship Act. The Agency is directed to report to the 
Committee the methodology it uses to distribute the funds 
between the two Acts.
    San Francisco Bay program.--$15,000,000 to continue 
competitive grants to State and local governments and partner 
organizations to implement projects that improve water quality 
and restore Bay watersheds.
    Gulf of Mexico program.--$10,000,000.
    Lake Champlain program.--$5,000,000.
    Lake Pontchartrain restoration program.--$3,000,000.
    Information Exchange/Outreach.--The Committee recommends 
$131,472,000, which is $5,129,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $353,000 below the request. From within this 
amount, the Committee directs:
          $10,038,000 for the Environmental Education Program. 
        The Agency is directed to apply the funding formula 
        authorized in the National Environmental Education Act.
          $16,860,000 for the Exchange Network.
          $50,480,000 for Congressional, Intergovernmental and 
        External Activities.
          $7,015,000 for Children and Other Sensitive 
        Populations.
    The Committee has provided an increase of $500,000 above 
the request for the Agency to begin to create and disseminate 
guidelines mandated in the Healthy High Performance Schools Act 
of 2007 (Title V of the Energy Independence and Security Act). 
These guidelines for siting school facilities and environmental 
health programs for schools will help to ensure that our 
children are protected from environmental hazards.
    IT/Data Management/Security.--The Committee recommends 
$104,320,000, $5,295,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $5,000,000 below the budget request. The Committee 
directs that none of the reduction be taken from the amount 
requested to restore and maintain the Agency's library system.
    Legal/Science/Regulatory/Economic Review.--The Committee 
recommends $123,788,000 for these programs, $5,665,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $4,443,000 below the 
budget request. The Committee has not provided funds to 
continue the Performance Track Program and awaits the Agency's 
review of this and other programs that rely on voluntary 
compliance. The Committee commends the Administrator for her 
decision to pause the Performance Track Program to look for 
opportunities to improve it. The Committee firmly believes 
programs which promote voluntary compliance with the law are 
valuable, but should augment and not replace the regulatory 
framework. The Committee has provided the requested level of 
$3,900,000 for the portion of the Smart Growth Program funded 
under this program area. In addition, the Committee has 
provided $19,215,000 for the Regulatory/Economic Management and 
Analysis Program, a reduction of $3,188,000 from the request 
and $2,486,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    Operations and Administration.--The Committee recommends 
$501,895,000 for Operations and Administration, $22,698,000 
above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $10,000,000 below 
the budget request. The Committee directs the reduction to be 
allocated as follows:
          -$5,000,000 from rent and utility savings;
          -$5,000,000 from the Financial System Modernization 
        Project (FSMP).
    Although the Committee's detailed table shows the first 
reduction to the rent request, the Agency may use utility and 
security savings to achieve a portion of the reduction.
    Water: Ecosystems.--The Committee recommends $61,503,000 
for this program, which is $12,407,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $11,200,000 above the request, without 
the Great Lakes Legacy Act. Funds for the Great Lakes Legacy 
Act have been moved to Geographic Programs. From within the 
amount provided, the Committee directs $28,000,000 to the 
National Estuary Program grant, authorized by section 320 of 
the Clean Water Act. The Committee directs that each national 
estuary receive a minimum of $1,000,000. This increase is an 
important component of the Committee's efforts to restore and 
protect our nation's Great Water Bodies.
    Water Quality Protection.--The Committee recommends 
$221,836,000 for this program, $11,019,000 above the 2009 
enacted level and $2,000,000 below the request. The reduction 
was taken to the Surface Water Protection program.
    Additional Guidance.--The Committee has included the 
following additional guidance with respect to funding provided 
under this account.
    Water Sense Partnership Program.--The Committee supports 
the Agency's program in partnership with manufacturers, 
retailers and distributors, water utilities, and others. The 
Committee recognizes that water efficiency is one method, 
although not the only method, to deal with our nation's aging 
water infrastructure and water supply problems. The Water Sense 
program seeks to protect the future of our nation's water 
supply by promoting water efficiency and enhancing the market 
for water-efficient products, programs, and practices. The 
Committee encourages the Agency to expand the Water Sense label 
and encourages the Agency to continue developing water 
efficiency and performance criteria for additional products.
    Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals.--The Committee continues to 
have a strong interest in EPA's efforts to assess the impact of 
endocrine disrupting chemicals on the environment and on human 
health. In reviewing the progress EPA has made to date, the 
Committee now directs EPA to:
    (1) Create a database of the initial pesticide chemicals to 
be screened in the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program 
(EDSP), made available on EPA's Website. The database should be 
updated to include the date a test order is issued and to whom, 
the due date for completing and submitting the data, the 
recipient's response to the order, including requests for 
extensions if any, and the results of Tier I screening or Tier 
II testing for each chemical listed.
    (2) Develop and publish criteria for evaluating the results 
of Tier I screening and determining whether a chemical should 
undergo Tier II analysis within one year of enactment. The 
process should allow for public input.
    (3) Publish within one year of enactment a second list of 
no less than 100 chemicals for screening that includes drinking 
water contaminants, such as halogenated organic chemicals, 
dioxins, flame retardants (PBDEs, PCBs, PFCs), plastics (BPA), 
pharmaceuticals and personal care products, and issue 25 orders 
per year for the testing of these chemicals. This process also 
should allow for public input.
    (4) Engage in a timely re-evaluation of the battery of 
screening, replacing outdated ones with updated, more efficient 
screens that have been validated (for example, a recombinant 
receptor assay to replace the cytosolic receptor assay for 
estrogen receptor binding).
    The Committee also encourages EPA to investigate assays to 
include in future screening protocols that expand screening 
beyond estrogen, androgen or thyroid disruption to include 
other hormones that are important for metabolism and weight 
regulation (e.g., insulin and the adrenal corticosteroids).
    NORM and TENORM.--The Committee recognizes the potential 
danger in the wastes that result from uranium mining commonly 
known as NORM (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials) or 
TENORM (Technically Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive 
Materials). The Committee urges the Agency to monitor these 
potentially harmful waste levels at new uranium mining sites, 
specifically those new uranium mining sites to be located in 
South Texas along the border with Mexico.
    Western Lake Erie Basin Partnership.--The Committee is 
encouraged that the Agency has begun to engage more 
collaboratively with the Western Lake Erie Basin Partnership. 
The Committee recognizes the work of the Western Lake Erie 
Basin Partnership as informative to broader basin restoration 
activities and encourages EPA to continue to collaborate with 
the dozens of partners involved in this regional effort.
    Colony Collapse Disorder.--Colony Collapse Disorder is the 
latest manifestation of pollinator decline in the United 
States. During the winters of 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 more than 
35 percent of managed honey bee populations disappeared, 
threatening $15 billion worth of agriculture that is pollinated 
by commercial beekeeping operations. Although the cause is 
unknown, pesticides have been linked to bee deaths in the past 
and are suspected to contribute to the latest decline. The 
Committee strongly urges the Agency to incorporate an 
assessment of the impacts on pollinators into the ecological 
assessment and registration or re-registration determination 
for each pesticide.

                      OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL

    The Office of Inspector General (OIG) provides audit, 
evaluation, and investigation products and advisory services to 
improve the performance and integrity of EPA programs and 
operations. The Inspector General (IG) will continue to perform 
the function of IG for the Chemical Safety and Hazard 
Investigation Board. This account funds personnel compensation 
and benefits, travel, and expenses (excluding rent, utilities, 
and security costs) for the Office of Inspector General. In 
addition to the funds provided under this heading, this account 
receives funds from the Hazardous Substance Superfund account 
and from the Chemical Safety and Hazards Investigations Board.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................       $44,791,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        44,791,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................        44,791,000

    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                0*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $44,791,000 for the Office of 
Inspector General as requested and the amount provided for 
fiscal year 2009. In addition, the Committee has provided the 
requested amounts to be transferred to this account from the 
Hazardous Substance Superfund ($9,975,000) account and from the 
Chemical Safety and Hazards Investigations Board (the Board) 
Account ($150,000).
    The Committee has again included authorization for the EPA 
IG to serve as the IG for the Board. To ensure a continued IG 
presence at the Board, the Committee has provided $150,000 to 
be transferred from the Board's appropriation account to this 
account. The funds are to be used for positions and extramural 
costs associated with the IG's work as the Inspector General of 
the Board. The Committee expects the IG to use these funds to 
expand the scope of work beyond what the OIG has produced in 
recent years and directs it to continue with the issues 
identified in the recent work by the Government Accountability 
Office.

                        BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES

    The Buildings and Facilities account provides for the 
design and construction of EPA-owned facilities as well as for 
the repair, extension, alteration, and improvement of 
facilities used by the Agency. The funds are used to correct 
unsafe conditions, protect health and safety of employees and 
Agency visitors, and prevent deterioration of structures and 
equipment.

    The Committee recommends $35,001,000, as provided in the 
previous year and $2,000,000 below the budget request.

                     HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE SUPERFUND

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFERS OF FUNDS)

    The Hazardous Substance Superfund (Superfund) program was 
established in 1980 by the Comprehensive Environmental 
Response, Compensation, and Liability Act to clean-up emergency 
hazardous materials, spills, and dangerous, uncontrolled, and/
or abandoned hazardous waste sites. The Superfund Amendments 
and Reauthorization Act (SARA) expanded the program 
substantially in 1986, authorizing approximately $8,500,000,000 
in revenues over five years. In 1990, the Omnibus Budget 
Reconciliation Act extended the program's authorization through 
1994 for $5,100,000,000 with taxing authority through calendar 
year 1995.
    The Superfund program is operated by EPA subject to annual 
appropriations from a dedicated trust fund and from general 
revenues. Enforcement activities are used to identify and 
induce parties responsible for hazardous waste problems to 
undertake clean-up actions and pay for EPA oversight of those 
actions. In addition, responsible parties have been required to 
cover the cost of fund-financed removal and remedial actions 
undertaken at spills and waste sites by Federal and State 
agencies. Funds are paid from this account to the Office of 
Inspector General and Science and Technology accounts for 
Superfund related activities.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................    $1,285,024,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................     1,308,541,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................     1,306,541,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +21,517,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................       -2,000,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $1,306,541,000 for the Hazardous 
Substance Superfund, $21,517,000 above the 2009 enacted level 
and $2,000,000 below the budget request. The changes to the 
request, as recommended by the Committee, appear in the table 
at the beginning of this title. The Committee provides the 
following additional detail by program area.
    Operations and Administration.--The Committee recommends 
$137,923,000, $3,280,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $2,000,000 below the budget request. The budget 
request assumes a slight reduction in FTEs for this account and 
therefore the Committee has not approved the total increase 
requested for human resources management.
    Superfund Cleanup.--The Committee has provided $856,412,000 
as requested, $9,054,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level. The majority of this increase will go to Emergency 
Response and Removal. The request for the Superfund Remedial 
program remains the same as the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. 
The Committee is concerned that the Agency estimates it will 
complete construction at only 22 sites on the National Priority 
List. This is two less than the estimate of completions in 
fiscal year 2009. With the proposed reinstatement of the 
Superfund tax, the Committee expects future budget requests 
will include funding sufficient to increase the number of 
annual ``construction completes'' in this program.
    Bill Language.--Bill language is included to pay 
$26,834,000 from this account to the Science and Technology 
Account, and $9,975,000 to the Office of Inspector General 
Account, as requested.
    Additional Guidance.--The Committee has included the 
following additional guidance with respect to funding provided 
under this account.
    Superfund Special Accounts.--The Inspector General has 
previously reported that EPA had large amounts of Superfund 
money in special accounts that EPA could potentially transfer 
to the Superfund Trust Fund. In a March 2009 report ``Improved 
Management of Superfund Special Accounts Will Make More Funds 
Available for Clean-ups'', the OIG found their earlier 
recommendations to better manage Superfund resources remained 
unimplemented, hindering EPA's ability to maximize the use of 
these much needed resources. Given the increasing costs of 
Superfund site clean ups, and in light of current budget 
constraints, the Committee believes it is imperative that the 
Agency make transparency and funds management a priority by 
reviewing, reclassifying, transferring, and publicly reporting 
on special account funds. The Agency is directed to include in 
its annual budget justification a plan for using these funds 
expeditiously.
    Superfund Alternative Sites.--The Committee continues to 
direct the Agency to report annually, by region, on the sites 
using the Superfund Alternative Approach Agreements, including 
intramural and extramural costs. The Committee notes that in 
fiscal year 2009 over 75 percent of the funds attributed to the 
alternative approach were used by only two EPA regions. The 
Committee continues to question why these two regions rely so 
heavily on the alternative approach and urges the Administrator 
to review this program.
    Brookfield Avenue Landfill.--The Committee encourages the 
EPA to reevaluate the inclusion of the Brookfield Avenue 
Landfill in Staten Island, New York on the EPA's National 
Priority List as a Superfund Site. The EPA should collect and 
utilize new data to make this determination, including a 
comprehensive examination of the potential for new exposure 
pathways via ground water migration and/or the volatilization 
of organic compounds at the Brookfield Landfill and surrounding 
areas.

          LEAKING UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANK TRUST FUND PROGRAM

    Subtitle I of the Solid Waste Disposal Act, as amended by 
the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act, authorized 
the establishment of a response program for clean up of 
releases from leaking underground storage tanks. Owners and 
operators of facilities with underground tanks must demonstrate 
financial responsibility and bear initial responsibility for 
clean-up. The Federal trust fund is funded through the 
imposition of a motor fuel tax of one-tenth of a cent per 
gallon.
    In addition to State resources, the Leaking Underground 
Storage Tank (LUST) Trust Fund provides funding to clean-up 
sites, enforces necessary corrective actions and recovers costs 
expended from the Fund for clean-up activities. The underground 
storage tank response program is designed to operate primarily 
through cooperative agreements with States. Funds are also used 
for grants to non-State entities, including Indian Tribes, 
under Section 8001 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery 
Act. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 expanded the authorized 
activities of the Fund to include the underground storage tank 
program. In 2006, Congress amended section 9508 of the Internal 
Revenue Code to authorize expenditures from the trust fund for 
prevention and inspection activities.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................      $112,577,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       113,101,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       113,101,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................          +524,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                0*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $113,101,000 as requested for the 
Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) Trust Fund Program, 
$524,000 above the 2009 enacted level. The changes to the 
request, as recommended by the Committee, appear in the table 
at the beginning of this title. The Committee provides the 
following additional detail by program area:
    EPA estimates that there are approximately 630,000 active 
underground storage tanks subject to regulation that require 
inspection. From that universe there have been over 474,000 
releases requiring corrective actions, of which 109,000 have 
yet to be completed. In fiscal year 2007 alone, there were over 
7,500 new releases reported. Despite the increased 
appropriation in 2009 and the ARRA funding, the budget 
estimates that the end of year balance in the LUST Trust Fund 
will continue to grow, increasing by more than $200,000,000 
from 2009 to 2010. In light of the number of new releases each 
year, the Committee urges the Administrator to determine if the 
States can use additional funding in future years.
    Bill Language.--The Committee has included the proposed 
bill language which authorizes, for one year, the Administrator 
to use the LUST Trust Fund for Tribal grants to develop and 
implement underground storage tank programs.

                           OIL SPILL RESPONSE

    This appropriation, authorized by the Federal Water 
Pollution Control Act, as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 
1990, provides funds to prepare for and prevent releases of oil 
and other petroleum products in navigable waterways. In 
addition, EPA is reimbursed for incident specific response 
costs through the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund managed by the 
United States Coast Guard.
    EPA is responsible for directing all clean-up and removal 
activities posing a threat to public health and the 
environment; conducting site inspections; providing a means to 
achieve clean-up activities by private parties; reviewing 
containment plans at facilities; reviewing area contingency 
plans; pursuing cost recovery of fund-financed clean-ups; and 
conducting research of oil clean-up techniques. Funds for this 
appropriation are provided through the Oil Spill Liability 
Trust Fund which is composed of fees and collections made 
through provisions of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, the 
Comprehensive Oil Pollution Liability and Compensation Act, the 
Deepwater Port Act of 1974, the Outer Continental Shelf Lands 
Act Amendments of 1978, and the Federal Water Pollution Control 
Act, as amended. Pursuant to law, the Trust Fund is managed by 
the United States Coast Guard.

    The Committee recommends $18,379,000 as requested for oil 
spill response, $692,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level.

                   STATE AND TRIBAL ASSISTANCE GRANTS

    The State and Tribal Assistance Grants (STAG) account 
provides grant funds for programs operated primarily by State, 
local, Tribal and other governmental partners. The account 
includes two broad types of funds: (1) Infrastructure 
Assistance, which is used primarily by local governments for 
projects supporting environmental protection; and, (2) 
Categorical Grants, which assist State and Tribal governments 
and other environmental partners with the operation of 
environmental programs.
    In the STAG account, EPA provides funding for 
infrastructure projects through two State Revolving Funds 
(Clean Water and Drinking Water), geographic specific projects 
in Alaskan Native Villages and on the United States-Mexico 
Border, Brownfield revitalization projects, diesel emission 
reduction grants and other targeted infrastructure projects.
    The State Revolving Funds (SRFs) provide Federal financial 
assistance to protect the Nation's water resources. The Clean 
Water SRF helps eliminate municipal discharge of untreated or 
inadequately treated pollutants and thereby helps maintain or 
restore the country's water to a swimmable and/or fishable 
quality. The Clean Water SRF provides resources for municipal, 
inter-municipal, State, and interstate agencies and Tribal 
governments to plan, design, and construct wastewater 
facilities and other projects, including non-point source, 
estuary, stormwater, and sewer overflow projects. The Safe 
Drinking Water SRF finances improvements to community water 
systems so that they can achieve compliance with the mandates 
of the Safe Drinking Water Act and continue to protect public 
health.
    The major Federal environmental statutes include provisions 
that allow the Federal government, through EPA, to delegate to 
the States and Tribes the day-to-day management of 
environmental programs. The Federal statutes were designed to 
recognize the States as partners and co-regulators, allowing 
the States to issue and enforce permits, carry out inspections 
and monitoring, and collecting data. To assist the States in 
this task, the statutes also authorized EPA to provide grants 
to the States and Tribes. These grants, which cover every major 
aspect of environmental protection, include those programs 
authorized by sections 319 and 106 of the Federal Water 
Pollution Control Act, as amended (for non-point source 
pollution and the water quality permits programs), sections 105 
and 103 of the Clean Air Act (for State and Local air quality 
management programs), section 128 of CERCLA (for the 
brownfields program management), section 1443(a) of the Safe 
Drinking Water Act (for public water system supervision), and 
section 3011 of RCRA (for hazardous waste financial 
assistance).
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................    $2,968,464,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................     5,191,274,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................     5,215,446,000
Comparison:...........................................
    Appropriation, 2009...............................    +2,246,982,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................      +24,172,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $5,215,446,000 for the State and 
Tribal Assistance account, $2,246,982,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $24,172,000 above the budget request. 
The changes to the request, as recommended by the Committee, 
appear in the table at the beginning of this title. The 
Committee provides the following additional detail by program 
area:
    Infrastructure Assistance.--For the infrastructure 
assistance portion of this account, the Committee recommends 
$4,100,000,000, which is $2,226,391,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $20,000,000 above the budget request. 
The Committee recognizes the growing need to not only build 
new, but also repair and replace existing, water and wastewater 
infrastructure. Over the course of recent months, through the 
fiscal year 2009 appropriations bill and the ARRA, the 
Committee has provided more than $7.5 billion for water and 
wastewater infrastructure through the State Revolving Funds 
(SRFs). This is the largest amount of water and wastewater 
infrastructure assistance ever provided by the Federal 
government in a single year to protect public health and the 
environment. Added to the amounts recommended here, the 
Committee will have provided or recommended over $11 billion 
for environmental infrastructure, resulting in over 4,400 
projects in communities all across this nation, in every State, 
each Territory and many Tribal nations.
    In this bill, the Committee has recommended $2,307,000,000 
for the Clean Water SRF and $1,443,000,000 for the Drinking 
Water SRF. These are principally loan programs. The Committee 
has found that many small, rural and/or disadvantaged 
communities do not have the resources to borrow from the SRFs 
with the responsibility to pay back 100 percent of the loan 
plus interest. As the Committee did with the ARRA funds, it has 
included bill language to allow the States to provide 
additional forms of subsidy to those communities which cannot 
afford even the below market rates provided by an SRF loan. 
These subsidies, which can be in the form of negative interest 
loans, principal forgiveness or grants, will apply to 30 
percent of the funds appropriated for the Drinking Water SRF 
and to 30 percent of the Clean Water SRF funds that exceed $1 
billion. This bill language is included in the Administrative 
Provisions.
    In addition, the Committee has continued language first 
carried in the ARRA, and requested by the President, to allow 
States to use up to 20 percent of each of their SRF grants for 
projects that are considered green infrastructure and those 
that provide water and/or energy efficiencies. The Committee 
has revised the language to clarify that the percentage applies 
to both SRFs and each State. The Committee continues to believe 
that decentralized, green infrastructure projects are an 
important component in the efforts to improve and restore our 
waters. The Committee commends the Agency's efforts to ensure 
that no State will require a waiver from the 20 percent goal in 
the ARRA and encourages the Agency to continue these efforts 
with the funds provided through this Act.
    For other infrastructure programs in this account, the 
Committee recommends: (1) an allocation of $160,000,000 for 
grants to local communities for water and sewer infrastructure; 
(2) $100,000,000 for Brownfields infrastructure projects; (3) 
$10,000,000 for the Alaska Native Villages Grant program; (4) 
$20,000,000 for the U.S.-Mexican Border program; and (5) 
$60,000,000 for the Diesel Emissions Reduction Grant Program.
    U.S.-Mexico Border.--From within the amount provided for 
the Mexican Border program, $2,500,000 is directed to the El 
Paso and Brownsville projects funded in prior years. The 
Committee notes that the significant increases in the Clean 
Water State Revolving fund provided in this bill and through 
the ARRA, coupled with the authority to award those funds with 
additional forms of subsidy, provide an expanded funding source 
for the important infrastructure projects along the border, and 
encourages EPA and the State of Texas to consider using those 
resources to accelerate projects along the border. The 
Committee directs the Agency to continue its new process to 
ensure funds are liquidated quickly. Although improvements have 
been made, the balances in this program remain high. Once the 
Agency has fully implemented the changes, the Committee will 
consider those balances when it next makes funding decisions.
    Diesel Emissions Reduction Grants.--The Committee continues 
to support the Diesel Emissions Reduction Grant Program, which 
received $300,000,000 through the American Recovery and 
Reinvestment Act. These funds are expected to result in 
approximately 160 grants and leverage over $300,000,000. 
Because this program is only a few years old and has received a 
significant boost through the ARRA, the Committee directs the 
Agency to report within 90 days of enactment on the number and 
types of project applications it has received for the 2009 and 
ARRA national competitions and how the states are spending 
their share of the grant funds.
    STAG Infrastructure Grant Priorities.--The bill provides 
$160,000,000 for drinking water, wastewater, storm water 
infrastructure and other water quality protection projects 
including the following:

    Categorical Grants to Environmental Partners.--For 
categorical grants to EPA's environmental partners, the 
Committee recommends $1,115,446,000, $20,591,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $4,172,000 above the budget 
request. The Committee supports the requested increases for the 
Section 102 Water Grants, the Public Water Supervision Grants, 
and the State and Local Air Quality grants. From within the 
amount provided, the Committee directs the following changes to 
the request:
          -$3,000,000 from the Hazardous Waste Financial 
        Assistance grant program, which will provide a 
        $2,000,000 increase above the fiscal year 2009 level;
          -$1,000,000 from the Lead grant, which will provide 
        the fiscal year 2009 level;
          -$1,828,000 from the Sector grants; and,
          +$10,000,000 to restore the Climate Change Grants to 
        local and Tribal governments.
    Climate Change Grants for Local and Tribal Communities.--
The bill includes $10,000,000 for the Office of Air and 
Radiation to continue a competitive grant program to assist 
local and Tribal communities in establishing and implementing 
integrated climate change initiatives. The goals of the program 
are to (1) assist local and Tribal governments in developing 
plans and implementing projects that provide cost-effective, 
continuing, and documentable reductions in greenhouse gas 
emissions; (2) to demonstrate replicable models of sustainable 
community action; and (3) to transfer these models nationwide 
through peer exchange, information sharing, and other means to 
build a network of ``communities of practice.''
    The Climate Change Grants complement existing Agency 
climate programs and provide a climate focus to other planning 
and implementation activities. In addition, the Committee 
considers this program to be unique in that it targets a 
specialized, critical audience (local and Tribal governments) 
specifically for greenhouse gas reductions in the context of 
broad climate change management. Rather than isolating 
components of climate change mitigation, the program encourages 
comprehensive, multi-media approaches that combine planning and 
project implementation with public education and outreach. This 
allows local and Tribal governments to tailor approaches to 
their specific needs and priorities, encourages innovative 
solutions, and avoids redundant efforts.
    The Agency is directed to continue to follow the specific 
guidelines contained in the explanatory statement accompanying 
the fiscal year 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act, including the 
requirement that grantees provide a 50 percent match and that 
Tribes receive five percent of the funds. The Agency is 
directed to report within 180 days of enactment of this Act on 
its progress in implementing this grant program, including a 
summary of the projects funded, estimates of greenhouse gases 
reduced and other quantifiable co-benefits, and suggestions for 
future implementation of the program.
    Bill Language.--The Committee recommendation retains the 
following language from prior years: (1) State administrative 
costs of the Clean Water State Revolving Fund; (2) conditions 
for the Alaska Native Villages Grant program; (3) special 
project grants, with a 45 percent match requirement; (4) 
Colonias Enforcement; (5) the language which provides STAG 
account funds for a small portion of the underground storage 
tank program; and, (6) authority for the Administrator to award 
grants to local governments for climate change projects.
    The Committee has accepted the following new bill language 
proposed by the President: (1) increases to the Tribal and 
territorial set-asides from the SRFs; and, (2) language to 
allow States to use the SRFs for green infrastructure and water 
and energy efficiency projects, with slight technical changes. 
New language has been included in the Administrative Provisions 
to provide for additional subsidies for communities that cannot 
afford a conventional SRF loan. The Committee has not included 
the following language proposed by the President: (1) a 
requirement that a State match funds provided for the 
particulate matter monitoring network; and, (2) a limitation 
that funds provided for water quality monitoring be used for 
state participation in national statistical surveys.
    Additional Guidance.--The Committee has included the 
following additional guidance with respect to funding provided 
under this account:
    Brownfields Technical Assistance Centers.--The Committee 
supports the Agency's use of regional technical assistance 
centers. The Agency is directed to continue this program at the 
fiscal year 2009 level of $1,800,000.

                       ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS

    The Committee recommendation continues the language, 
carried in prior years, concerning Tribal Cooperative Authority 
and the collection and obligation of pesticides fees. The 
Committee has accepted the President's proposal to expand the 
Agency's transfer and interagency agreement authority for the 
purposes of implementing the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative 
only.
    The Committee has accepted the President's proposal to 
rescind prior year funds, but has increased the rescission to 
$142,000,000, which is $132,000,000 more than the request. The 
Committee has taken this action in light of a recent IG report, 
which indicates that the Agency has an unusually high 
unliquidated balance from appropriations made prior to fiscal 
year 2009. Should the Agency identify any of those funds not 
from the STAG account as eligible for this rescission prior to 
the Conference Committee on this bill, the Committee will 
consider expanding the accounts from which this rescission can 
be taken. The Bill Language prohibits the Agency from taking 
the rescission against amounts designated by Congress as 
emergency. The Committee has amended the proposed language on 
Title 42 authority to extend the authority through 2015. The 
Committee also has included two provisions relating to 
subsidies and green infrastructure projects from within the 
funds provided for the Clean Water and Drinking Water State 
Revolving Funds. Bill language has been included to provide 
specific wage rate requirements for the Clean Water and

                       Department of Agriculture


                             FOREST SERVICE

    The U.S. Forest Service manages 193 million acres of public 
lands, including lands in 44 States and Puerto Rico, and 
cooperates with States, other Federal agencies, Tribes and 
others to sustain the Nation's forests and grasslands. The 
Forest Service administers a wide variety of programs, 
including forest and rangeland research, State and private 
forestry assistance, wildfire suppression and fuels reduction, 
cooperative forest health programs, an International program 
and human resource programs. The National Forest System (NFS) 
includes 155 national forests, 20 national grasslands, 20 
national recreation areas, a national tallgrass prairie, 6 
national monuments, and 6 land utilization projects. The NFS is 
managed for multiple use, including timber production, 
recreation, wilderness, minerals, grazing, fish and wildlife 
habitat management, and soil and water conservation. The Forest 
Service celebrated its centennial in 2005.
    The Committee recommendations for all Forest Service 
accounts are based on changes to the President's budget 
request. Unless otherwise stated, the Committee approves the 
items in the budget justification and supporting materials from 
the Service.
    The Committee encourages the Forest Service to accelerate 
longleaf pine forest restoration efforts using funds made 
available within the National Forest System, forest and 
rangeland research, wildland fire management and State and 
private forestry accounts. The Committee expects the Forest 
Service to work with the Fish and Wildlife Service and other 
partners as appropriate towards realizing the range-wide 
conservation plan for longleaf pine and objectives under the 
Southeast Regional Partnership for Planning and Sustainability.
    The amounts recommended by the Committee for each Forest 
Service appropriation account, compared with the budget 
estimates by activity, are shown in the following table:

                     FOREST AND RANGELAND RESEARCH

    Forest and rangeland research and development sponsors 
basic and applied scientific research. This research provides 
both credible and relevant knowledge about forests and 
rangelands and new technologies that can be used to sustain the 
health, productivity, and diversity of private and public lands 
to meet the needs of present and future generations. Research 
is conducted across the U.S. through six research stations, the 
Forest Products Laboratory, and the International Institute of 
Tropical Forestry in Puerto Rico, as well as cooperative 
research efforts with many of the Nation's universities.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................      $296,380,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       300,612,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       308,612,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +12,232,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................        +8,000,000
    The Committee recommends $308,612,000 for forest and 
rangeland research, $12,232,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $8,000,000 above the budget request. The 
recommendation includes increases of $3,000,000 to cover 
previously unfunded fixed costs and $5,000,000 for global 
climate change research. The Committee expects the Forest 
Service aspen free air CO
2
 enrichment experiment to 
continue to be operational to provide answers to critical 
questions about the impacts of greenhouse gases and climate 
change on forests, air quality standards and human health.
    The Committee recognizes that Forest Service research 
conducts leading-edge science that helps address the impacts of 
climate change on trees, forests and forest ecosystems through 
adaptation and mitigation actions. The Committee expects the 
Service to closely coordinate with the U.S. Geological Survey 
and other Federal science providers to develop a cohesive 
strategy towards evolving climate change science needs, 
including implementing the adaptation strategy for assessing 
ecosystem carbon sequestration required by section 712 of the 
Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. Future budget 
justifications should clearly delineate Forest Service research 
efforts in climate change science, and how they link with and 
compliment other Federal efforts.
    The Committee congratulates the Forest Service on the 
centennial of the network of experimental forests. The Service 
is encouraged to continue supporting and expanding this network 
and utilize this tremendous resource for coordinated studies 
and monitoring of important issues, such as climate change 
research and carbon sequestration in soils and vegetation. The 
Committee notes that May 18, 2010 will be the 30th anniversary 
of the destructive blast of Mt. St. Helens. The Forest Service 
is encouraged to continue its exceptional efforts to track 
ecological response to this catastrophic event and support 
scientific studies of this milestone.
    The Forest Service should treat the funding for the Forest 
Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program as a budget line item. 
Funding for FIA under this heading is $61,939,000 as requested. 
The Committee notes that an additional $5,035,000 for the FIA 
program is provided within the State and private forestry 
appropriation under the forest resource information and 
analysis budget line item. The two FIA program components thus 
receive a total of $66,974,000.

                       STATE AND PRIVATE FORESTRY

    Through cooperative programs with State and local 
governments, non-industrial private forest landowners, forest 
industry and conservation organizations, the Forest Service 
supports the protection and management of the nearly 500 
million acres of non-Federal forests in the country. Technical 
and financial assistance is offered to improve wildland fire 
management and protect communities from wildfire; control 
insects and disease; improve management of private forests; 
conserve environmentally important forests; and enhance 
stewardship of urban and rural forests. The Forest Service 
provides special expertise and disease suppression for all 
Federal and Tribal lands, as well as cooperative assistance 
with the States for State and private lands.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................      $265,861,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       306,111,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       307,486,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +41,625,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................        +1,375,000
    The Committee recommends $307,486,000 for State and private 
forestry (S&PF), $41,625,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $1,375,000 above the budget request. The Committee is 
encouraged by the S&PF redesign effort; a component of 
redesign, the national competition, has successfully 
demonstrated project prioritization and program innovation as 
documented in the 2009 Redesign Report Card. To facilitate 
further implementation of the redesign effort, the Committee 
exempts the Redesign National Competition from the normal 
reprogramming guidelines. In lieu, the Committee expects to 
receive a report annually as part of the budget justification 
on the program adjustments made to appropriately fund the 
competitive projects.
    Forest Health Management.--The Committee recommends 
$107,105,000 for forest health management, an increase of 
$6,703,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$6,000,000 above the request. The funding increase is for high 
priority forest health efforts. The Committee notes that 
increased funding has also been provided for forest health 
management under the wildland fire management account. The 
forest health program should continue to stress strategic 
funding allocations, and should continue the slow-the-spread, 
suppression and eradication efforts for gypsy moth and bark 
beetle work in the West. The Service should also expand efforts 
on the hemlock wooly adelgid in the East.
    The Committee has provided a $2,000,000 increase above the 
request for cooperative lands forest health management; this 
increase should be used to assist in restoring urban areas and 
communities through identifying and replanting trees infested 
and killed by the emerald ash borer.
    The Committee encourages the Service to use existing State 
and private forestry authorities to assist in restoring urban 
and community forests through identifying and replanting trees 
infested and killed by the emerald ash borer. The Service 
should use base program funding to continue important 
technology development and scientific monitoring of the emerald 
ash borer situation and report to the Committee by December 31, 
2009 on the emerald ash borer program and the overall 
scientific, monitoring, technology development and urban and 
rural response to clean-up and restore damaged areas. The 
Committee directs the Administration and the USDA to use 
existing emergency authorities to release USDA funds to assist 
impacted communities with responding to this emergency, just as 
they have during previous pest and agricultural emergencies.
    Cooperative Fire Protection.--The Committee recommends 
$46,147,000 for cooperative fire protection, $5,147,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $4,000,000 above the 
request. The increase above the request is intended to help 
States prepare the State-wide Assessment and Resource Strategy 
plans and associated activities required by the Farm Bill and 
the S&PF redesign approach. These efforts have the potential to 
significantly change the way cooperative programs are 
delivered, resulting in a more strategic approach to landscape 
scale planning and delivery of program and projects. As State 
and Federal agencies respond to emerging carbon markets and 
respond to climate change, these State-level forest plans can 
serve as essential parts of landscape and regional adaptation 
efforts. Nearly 500,000,000 acres of the United States is 
private or State forestland with major impacts on regional and 
global carbon cycling, depending on how they are managed in the 
future.
    Forest Stewardship.--The Committee recommends $31,639,000 
for forest stewardship, $4,639,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $3,270,000 above the budget request. The base 
Chesapeake Bay program should be increased $1,000,000 above the 
requested level. The other increase above the request should be 
used for priority work and to offset previously unfunded fixed 
costs at the Forest Service and States.
    Forest Legacy Program.--The Committee recommends a total 
funding level of $79,715,000 for the forest legacy program, 
which includes the use of $3,500,000 of prior-year unobligated 
balances for a total appropriated level of $76,215,000. This 
appropriated level is $26,770,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
level and $14,845,000 below the budget request. The Service is 
directed to follow its nationally ranked priority list for 
funding projects.
    Urban and Community Forestry.--The Committee recommends 
$30,777,000 for urban and community forestry, $1,236,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $1,450,000 above the 
budget request. The funding increase includes $150,000 to 
support the Baltimore, MD, urban forestry watershed 
demonstration cooperative project, $300,000 to support the 
Menomonee Valley partners urban forestry project in Milwaukee, 
WI, and $1,000,000 to continue the Seattle-Tacoma regional 
urban forestry restoration effort, WA.
    The Committee encourages the Forest Service to work with 
the Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Committee, key 
partner organizations such as the Sustainable Urban Forestry 
Coalition, and other Federal agencies to ensure the importance 
of sustaining the natural urban environment. The Committee 
expects the Forest Service to focus funding allocations on 
efforts in large urban areas and on various efforts to enhance 
green infrastructure, including strategic selection of several 
projects of national and regional significance.
    Forest Resource Information and Analysis.--The Committee 
recommends $5,035,000 for forest resource information and 
analysis as requested, an increase of $35,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level.
    International Forestry.--The Committee recommends 
$10,568,000 for International Forestry, $2,068,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $1,500,000 above the budget 
request. The Committee recognizes the Forest Service 
International Program for its successful projects in the areas 
of migratory species habitat, invasive species control, illegal 
logging interventions and analysis of carbon market models, all 
of which directly benefit the United States. Further, the 
program's work on preventing international deforestation and 
grassland destruction represent important, early action by the 
U.S. to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from forest destruction 
and degradation. Activities related to deforestation are 
responsible for more than 20 percent of all global greenhouse 
gas emissions annually.

                         NATIONAL FOREST SYSTEM

    Within the National Forest System (NFS), which covers 193 
million acres, there are 61 Congressionally designated areas, 
including 21 national recreation areas, and 7 national scenic 
areas. The NFS hosted over 179 million visits in 2008. The NFS 
includes over 153,000 miles of trails and roughly 17,700 
recreation sites, including approximately 5,200 campgrounds and 
37 major visitor centers. Wilderness areas cover 36 million 
acres, which account for approximately 60 percent of the 
wilderness in the contiguous 48 States. The NFS includes a 
substantial amount of the Nation's softwood inventory. In 
fiscal year 2008 over 205,000 acres of national forest 
vegetation was managed through timber sale activities, which 
produced nearly 2.5 billion board feet of timber volume. The 
Forest Service also has major habitat management 
responsibilities for more than 3,000 species of wildlife and 
fish, and 10,000 plant species and provides important habitat 
and open space for over 422 threatened or endangered species. 
Half of the Nation's big game and coldwater fish habitat, 
including salmon and steelhead, is located on NFS lands and 
waters. In addition, in the 11 western States, where the water 
supply is sometimes critically short, over 50 percent of 
domestic water is provided from NFS lands.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................    $1,509,805,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................     1,506,564,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................     1,564,801,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +54,996,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................       +58,237,000
    The Committee recommends $1,564,801,000 for the national 
forest system, $54,996,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $58,237,000 above the budget request. A total of 
$35,237,000 has been added to cover fixed cost increases. 
Unless otherwise specified, the increases above the request by 
budget activity are for fixed costs. In addition, an increase 
of $7,500,000 is recommended for climate change adaptation 
efforts. This funding includes $2,500,000 for both the wildlife 
and fisheries habitat management and vegetation and watershed 
management activities, $1,500,000 for the inventory and 
monitoring activity and $1,000,000 for the land management 
planning activity. The Forest Service is expected to work 
closely with the Interior Department, especially the BLM and 
the U.S. Geological Survey, on climate change impact 
activities. Further direction on interagency coordination is in 
the front of this report. The requested rescission of 
$10,000,000 of prior year funding is not included.
    Land Management Planning.--The Committee recommends 
$47,317,000 for land management planning, $1,516,000 below the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $1,799,000 above the budget 
request.
    The Committee encourages the Service to review the National 
Forest Management Act planning process, including the adequacy 
of the 2008 planning rule. The Committee encourages appropriate 
policy, which will ensure strong protection for fish and 
wildlife, proper scientific analysis, and opportunities for 
well-informed public involvement in planning conducted pursuant 
to the National Forest Management Act and the National 
Environmental Policy Act. The Committee encourages the Service 
to conduct this review before proposing or finalizing revised 
forest plans under the 2008 forest planning rule.
    Inventory and Monitoring.--The Committee recommends 
$173,810,000 for inventory and monitoring, $6,230,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $5,115,000 above the budget 
request.
    Recreation, Heritage and Wilderness.--The Committee 
recommends $292,599,000 for recreation, heritage and 
wilderness, $14,964,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $12,482,000 above the budget request.
    The Committee recommendation includes an increase of 
$5,000,000 for the Forest Service to enhance its efforts with 
youth and conservation. The funding is provided under this 
program; however, the Service may allocate these funds to other 
programs or transfer funds to other accounts if this would lead 
to a more effective and efficient youth program. The Committee 
expects the Forest Service to work closely with the Interior 
Department and partners on this youth effort and report back to 
the Committee within 90 days of enactment on the Service's 
plans for this funding increase. The remainder of the increase 
above the request is for fixed costs.
    Wildlife and Fish Habitat Management.--The Committee 
recommends $148,557,000 for wildlife and fish habitat 
management, an increase of $9,172,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $7,086,000 above the budget request.
    Grazing Management.--The Committee recommends $50,714,000 
for grazing management, $714,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $765,000 above the budget request.
    Forest Products.--The Committee recommends $336,722,000 for 
forest products, an increase of $4,056,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level and $7,763,000 above the budget 
request.
    The Forest Service is encouraged to consider all contract 
methods for implementing sustainable biomass energy projects 
proposed on the Mark Twain National Forest, MO, including 
stewardship contracting authority provided under Section 323 of 
Public Law 108-7, utilizing available agency funding.
    Vegetation and Watershed Management.--The Committee 
recommends $189,135,000 for vegetation and watershed 
management, an increase of $8,698,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $6,849,000 above the budget request.
    Minerals and Geology Management.--The Committee recommends 
$87,830,000 for minerals and geology management, an increase of 
$2,360,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$1,180,000 above the budget request.
    Land Ownership Management.--The Committee recommends 
$96,841,000 for land ownership management, $3,542,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $2,469,000 above the budget 
request.
    Law Enforcement Operations.--The Committee recommends 
$137,776,000 for law enforcement operations, $2,276,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $2,729,000 above the 
budget request. The Committee notes that this fully funds the 
budget request, which includes, among many other ongoing 
activities, $500,000 for methamphetamine prevention efforts on 
the Mark Twain National Forest, MO, and $900,000 to continue 
law enforcement operations on the Daniel Boone National Forest, 
KY.
    Bill Language.--The recommendation includes bill language 
which allows up to $10,000,000 to be transferred to other 
Forest Service accounts if it enhances the efficiency or 
effectiveness of Federal activities.

                  CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT AND MAINTENANCE

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................      $482,393,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................       556,962,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       542,637,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +60,244,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................      -14,325,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $542,637,000 for capital 
improvement and maintenance, $60,244,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $14,325,000 below the budget request. 
The recommendation continues the previous legislative language 
which brings the roads and trails fund activities onto the 
discretionary budget, netting an $18,000,000 scoring credit. 
The Committee remains interested in the travel management 
planning process. It is vital for the Service to look at the 
entire road system on a National Forest and determine those 
roads that are unneeded or which may be harming the 
environment. The Committee also feels that the implementation 
of the travel management plans needs to be user-friendly. The 
designation of open and closed roads and trails needs to be 
easily understood by the public.
    Facilities Maintenance.--The Committee recommends 
$86,134,000 for facilities maintenance as requested. The 
Committee continues the requested bill language in the 
administrative provisions allowing program assessments for 
maintenance of facilities. The Committee notes that the Forest 
Service intends to generate additional funds for maintenance 
and construction of facilities through the use of the funds 
generated by selling surplus administrative sites under the 
Federal Land and Facility Conveyance Act (FLFCA). The budget 
justification indicates that there is a backlog of deferred 
maintenance for buildings of $711,925,000, so a variety of 
approaches will be needed to deal with this issue. The 
Committee expects to get regular, detailed updates on the FLFCA 
and continued detailed tables in the annual budget 
justification.
    Facilities Capital Improvement.--The Committee recommends 
$45,081,000 for facilities capital improvement, $10,521,000 
below the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $475,000 above the 
budget request. The increase is for the Ratcliff Lake 
Recreation Area and Campground, Davy Crockett National Forest, 
TX.
    Road Maintenance.--The Committee recommends $166,885,000 
for road maintenance as requested, $4,385,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level.
    Road Capital Improvement.--The Committee recommends 
$68,115,000 for road capital improvement as requested, 
$1,790,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The 
Committee expects that the Forest Service will not build new 
roads unless they are absolutely needed for resource or service 
purposes.
    Trail Maintenance and Capital Improvement.--The Committee 
recommends $85,281,000 for trail maintenance and capital 
improvement, $4,266,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $3,200,000 above the budget request. The increase for 
trail maintenance is for fixed costs. The increase in trail 
capital improvement is for trail construction, maintenance, and 
improvement in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, ID, of 
which $500,000 is for trail improvements; $500,000 is for 
maintenance of existing motorized trails and areas; and 
$200,000 is for the improvement of two existing trails to 
provide primitive wheelchair access at Murdock Creek and 
Phyllis Lake.
    The Committee recommendation retains previous base funding 
for maintenance, construction, and operation of the network of 
national scenic and historic trails but encourages additional 
funding for required work of the newly authorized national 
trails. Future budget justifications should continue to provide 
specific trail operation, maintenance and construction funding 
and accomplishment data for the national scenic and historic 
trails. The Service should provide full time administrators and 
prepare the required comprehensive management plans for the 
newly authorized national trails. The Committee notes that the 
budget request, which is fully funded, includes $2,000,000 for 
the Pacific Crest National Trail and $1,500,000 for the Florida 
National Scenic Trail and funding for other national trails as 
described in the budget justification.
    Deferred Maintenance.--The Committee recommends $9,141,000 
for deferred maintenance as requested, an increase of $41,000 
over the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The Committee notes 
that the budget justification indicates a deferred maintenance 
backlog of $5,145,142,000. The Service should continue to 
update this information in its future budget requests. The 
Committee also notes that the American Recovery and 
Reimbursement Act of 2009 (ARRA) provided $650,000,000 for 
Forest Service capital improvement and maintenance and 
associated habitat improvement projects. The Committee expects 
that the ongoing reporting by the Forest Service as required by 
the ARRA will include information on the progress the Service 
is making at reducing the deferred maintenance backlog.
    Legacy Road and Trail Remediation.--The Committee 
recommendation merges the budget requests for both the legacy 
road and trail remediation program and the new Administration 
initiative, protecting national forests. The new protecting 
national forests initiative has not been clearly explained by 
the Forest Service, but it shares the same goals and purpose as 
the proven legacy road and trail remediation program, which is 
to reduce deferred maintenance and protect watersheds and 
habitats by repairing infrastructure. The Committee 
recommendation provides $100,000,000 for the legacy road and 
trail remediation program. This includes the $50,000,000 
requested for the program and the additional $50,000,000 
requested for the protecting national forests initiative. Thus 
the legacy road and trail program recommended funding level is 
$50,000,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$50,000,000 above the budget request. The recommendation does 
not provide separate funding for the new protecting national 
forests initiative, but the Committee recommendation 
accomplishes the same goals of that initiative.
    The Committee notes that the legacy road and trail 
remediation program protects American rivers, streams, 
endangered fish, and community water systems by repairing the 
environmental damage caused by the vast legacy road system 
developed by the Forest Service, which served the needs of the 
Forest Service over the years. The Forest Service has 
responsibility for 6,400 bridges, 378,000 miles of roads and 
thousands of miles of unofficial roadways. The Forest Service 
has not met its stewardship responsibilities to care for these 
roads, which would prevent harm to the downstream water needs 
of the States and communities and the aquatic life our Nation 
cherishes. The Service's own statistics indicate that there is 
a $3,530,000,000 backlog in deferred maintenance for roads and 
bridges and another $280,000,000 deferred maintenance backlog 
for trails. In addition, there are thousands of stream 
crossings that are barriers to the movement of Endangered 
Species Act (ESA) listed fish, making it difficult for these 
species to fully interact with habitats, including the 
relatively pristine, upper watersheds which are often the prime 
strongholds for listed fish species. Several large, regional 
watershed restoration efforts are spending hundreds of 
millions, even billions, of dollars on downstream management 
and regulatory requirements. However, restoration that leads to 
recovery as defined by the ESA cannot occur absent the Forest 
Service meeting its obligations in upstream areas. The Forest 
Service should use this funding in a strategic effort to 
decommission and fix roads and trails in environmentally 
sensitive areas. It should focus on those areas where Forest 
Service roads may be contributing to water quality problems in 
streams and water bodies which support threatened, endangered 
or sensitive species. The Service should utilize public input 
to help select projects, report back to the Committee within 
120 days of enactment on the selected projects, and display its 
selection process and implementation activities on the agency's 
web site.
    Bill Language.--The recommendation includes the following 
bill language: (1) allows funds to be used for road 
decommissioning; (2) encourages expedited decommissioning of 
unauthorized roads in response to threats to public safety, 
water quality, or natural resources; (3) transfers funds from 
the road and trail fund into the Treasury, netting an 
$18,000,000 scoring credit to this account; and (4) allows up 
to $10,000,000 to be transferred to other Forest Service 
accounts if it enhances the efficiency or effectiveness of

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

    The Committee is concerned that the Forest Service budget 
request for land acquisition was entirely at odds with the 
Department of the Interior's request for Federal land 
acquisition. In fact, the Federal land acquisition activity was 
reduced by almost half, and the request provided no funding for 
inholdings and wilderness protection. The Forest Service is a 
major manager of conservation lands in the United States, 
especially in the contiguous 48 States, with many sensitive 
inholdings and vital protection opportunities. Despite a 
healthy request for the forest legacy program, it is 
inappropriate for this agency to be excluded from a major 
policy initiative, like funding for acquisition of sensitive 
Federal lands. The Committee has included additional discussion 
of land acquisition for all agencies covered by this bill in 
the front section of this report.

         ACQUISITION OF LANDS FOR NATIONAL FORESTS SPECIAL ACTS
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................        $1,050,000

    Appropriation, 2009...............................                 0
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $1,050,000 for acquisition of 
lands for National forests, special acts, as requested.

            ACQUISITION OF LANDS TO COMPLETE LAND EXCHANGES
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................          $250,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................           250,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................           250,000

    Appropriation, 2009...............................                 0
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $250,000, as requested, for 
acquisition of lands to complete land exchanges under the Act 
of December 4, 1967 (16 U.S.C. 484a). Under the Act, deposits 
made by public school districts or public school authorities to 
provide for cash equalization of certain land exchanges can be 
appropriated to acquire similar lands suitable for national 
forest system purposes in the same State as the national forest 
lands conveyed in the exchanges.

                         RANGE BETTERMENT FUND
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................        $3,600,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................         3,600,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................         3,600,000

    Appropriation, 2009...............................                 0
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $3,600,000, as requested, for the 
range betterment fund, to be derived from grazing receipts from 
the National Forests (Public Law 94-579, as amended) and to be 
used for range rehabilitation, protection, and improvements 
including seeding, reseeding, fence construction, weed control, 
water development, and fish and wildlife habitat enhancement in 
16 western States.

    GIFTS, DONATIONS AND BEQUESTS FOR FOREST AND RANGELAND RESEARCH
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................           $50,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................            50,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................            50,000

    Appropriation, 2009...............................                 0
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $50,000, as requested, for gifts, 
donations and bequests for forest and rangeland research. 
Authority for the program is contained in Public Law 95-307 (16 
U.S.C. 1643, section 4(b)). Amounts appropriated and not needed 
for current operations may be invested in public debt 
securities. Both the principal and earnings from the receipts 
are available to the Forest Service.

        MANAGEMENT OF NATIONAL FOREST LANDS FOR SUBSISTENCE USES
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................        $5,000,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................         2,582,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................         2,582,000

    Appropriation, 2009...............................        -2,418,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $2,582,000 for the management of 
national forest lands for subsistence uses in Alaska as 
requested, $2,418,000 below the enacted level.

                        WILDLAND FIRE MANAGEMENT

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................    $2,131,630,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................     2,238,147,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................     2,370,288,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................      +238,658,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................     +132,141,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $2,370,288,000 for wildland fire 
management, $238,658,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $132,141,000 above the budget request. This increase 
above the enacted level includes an increase of $134,558,000 
for wildfire suppression operations. The non-suppression parts 
of the recommended budget are provided $1,241,783,000, 
$104,100,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    Wildfire Preparedness.--The Committee recommends 
$693,000,000 for wildfire preparedness, an increase of 
$18,000,000 above both the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
the request. The increase is to offset fixed cost shortfalls. 
The Committee believes that the Department of the Interior and 
the Forest Service must work together, along with State and 
other partners, to maintain sufficient readiness with the 
preparedness program.
    The Committee directs the Forest Service to maintain the 
levels of readiness needed for public safety that were 
established in fiscal year 2008. Accordingly, the Committee 
directs the Forest Service to analyze current readiness levels 
to determine whether maintaining preparedness resources in the 
field at a level not less than that established in fiscal year 
2008 will, based on the best information available, result in 
lower overall firefighting costs. If the Forest Service makes 
such a determination, the Committee directs the Forest Service 
to adjust the levels for preparedness and suppression funding 
accordingly and report on these adjustments to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations. The Secretary of 
Agriculture should advise the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations in writing prior to the decision.
    The Committee understands the Forest Service has undergone 
a thorough examination of its aging air tanker fleet and has 
prepared an analytical report for review by the Administration. 
Recognizing the critical need to plan for future aerial fire 
suppression needs, the Committee directs the Forest Service to 
provide a copy of its report, including an estimate of 
replacement costs, within 30 days of enactment of this Act.
    Wildfire Suppression Operations.--The Committee recommends 
$1,128,505,000 for fire suppression operations as requested, 
$134,558,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level, an 
increase of 14 percent. The Committee recommendation fully 
meets the 10-year average expenditure on all emergency and 
discretionary funded suppression actions, adjusted up for 
inflation. The Committee notes that the inclusion of 
$282,000,000 in additional funds within the wildland fire 
suppression contingency reserve fund should provide all the 
funding needed for wildfire suppression. Bill language included 
in administrative provisions provides authority for the Forest 
Service to transfer non-wildfire funds for emergency wildfire 
suppression once all the funds in this account and the new 
contingency account will be obligated within 30 days and 
following Secretarial notification of the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations at least 5 days before such a 
transfer occurs. The Committee encourages the Administration 
and the Congress to provide better advance budgetary planning 
during the summer wildfire season so extra emergency resources 
can be provided if required.
    The Committee remains concerned about the high costs of 
large fire incidents. The Department of the Interior, along 
with the Forest Service, should ensure that cost containment is 
an important priority when suppressing wildland fires. 
Therefore, the Committee directs the Department of the Interior 
and the Forest Service to continue reports required previously 
and to examine, using independent panels, any individual 
wildfire incident which results in expenses greater than 
$10,000,000.
    Hazardous Fuels.--The Committee recommends $378,086,000 for 
hazardous fuels reduction work, $50,000,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 level and $62,801,000 above the budget request. This 
recommended increase should protect many communities and lead 
to reduced wildfire suppression expenses and less damaging 
wildfires. The recommendation includes $5,000,000 for biomass 
utilization grants as requested.
    Rehabilitation.--The Committee recommends $11,600,000 for 
the burned area rehabilitation and restoration program, 
$100,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$2,600,000 above the request. The recommendation includes 
$100,000 to support urban youth conservation corps activities 
at the San Bernardino NF, CA. The Interior Department and the 
Forest Service should include updates on rehabilitation needs 
in future budget justifications. The Forest Service should 
continue the native plant materials program funding at 
$3,000,000 and this program should work together with the 
Bureau of Land Management program.
    Fire Plan Research and Development.--The Committee 
recommends $23,917,000 for research and development as 
requested, the same as the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    Joint Fire Sciences Program.--The Committee recommends 
$8,000,000 for the joint fire science program as requested, the 
same as the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The Committee 
directs the Interior Department and the Forest Service to work 
on these research efforts jointly, and stress practical 
solutions and collaboration with the Nation's forestry schools 
and other partners. The Committee notes that an additional 
$6,000,000 for this program is provided within the Department 
of the Interior wildland fire management appropriation to 
continue joint departmental service of this effort.
    Forest Health Management, Federal Lands and Co-op Lands.--
The Committee recommends $37,180,000 for the forest health 
portion of the national fire plan, $10,000,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level and $15,750,000 above the request. The 
increased funding should be used strategically to protect 
Federal and cooperative forests and rangelands, leading to more 
resilient habitats and reduced wildfire danger.
    State Fire Assistance.-- The Committee recommends 
$80,000,000 for State fire assistance, $25,000,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $30,000,000 above the 
request. The program is essential to maintain and enhance the 
partnership among State foresters, State fire agencies and the 
Federal wildfire management enterprise. The increased funding 
should be focused on forestry and habitat projects which 
protect communities and reduce wildfire danger.
    Volunteer Fire Assistance.--The recommendation includes 
$10,000,000 for volunteer fire assistance, $1,000,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $3,000,000 above the 
request.

           WILDLAND FIRE SUPPRESSION CONTINGENCY RESERVE FUND

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................                 0
Budget estimate, 2010.................................      $282,000,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................       282,000,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................      +282,000,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $282,000,000 for the new wildland 
fire suppression contingency reserve fund as requested. The 
Committee notes that the recommendation also increases base 
funding for suppression activities of the Forest Service by 
$134,558,000 to a total of $1,128,505,000 for fire suppression 
operations, an increase of 14 percent. The combined wildfire 
suppression funding for the Forest Service is $1,410,505,000, a 
42 percent increase over the fiscal year 2009 base 
appropriation.
    As requested by the Administration, the amounts in this 
fund may only be transferred if the President has issued a 
finding that the amounts are necessary for emergency fire 
suppression. The Committee recommendation allows the transfer 
only if the wildland fire management fire suppression funds 
will be obligated within 30 days.
    The Committee notes that its recommendation also includes 
another $369,797,000 for the Interior Department as base 
suppression funding and an additional $75,000,000 for a similar 
contingency account. Thus, the Committee recommendation for 
both wildfire suppression accounts in both departments is 
$1,855,302,000, which is a 40 percent increase over the fiscal 
year 2009 non-emergency level.
    The Committee notes that the Federal Land Assistance, 
Management and Enhancement Act (FLAME Act) passed the House in 
March 2009. That Act authorizes a supplemental funding source 
for catastrophic emergency wildland fire suppression activities 
on Department of the Interior and National Forest System lands. 
If the FLAME Act is authorized, the Committee will work with 
the Administration and others to make this new wildfire 
suppression contingency fund compatible with the new FLAME Act 
funding procedures.

               ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS, FOREST SERVICE

    The Committee has continued most administrative provisions 
included in previous years. The Committee has continued the 
wildland fire transfer authority, allowing use of funds from 
non-wildfire accounts available to the Forest Service during 
wildfire emergencies when other wildfire emergency funds are 
not available. However, this year this transfer authority can 
be used only after suppression funds in both the wildland fire 
management account and the new contingency account will be 
obligated within 30 days. The Secretary of Agriculture must 
notify the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations at 
least 5 days before such a transfer occurs. The Administration 
is expected to submit a supplemental request to replenish 
transferred funds as soon as possible.
    The Committee limits funding for the working capital fund 
of the Department of Agriculture to the $78,350,000 requested 
in the budget and limits the transfers to the USDA reimbursable 
programs (Greenbook charges) to the request of $19,825,000.
    The Committee is concerned about the huge costs of agency 
business process centralization and therefore directs that 
detailed reports remain a part of the budget justification and 
that all expenses be carefully evaluated, explained, and 
transparent to the public-at-large. The centralized services 
include, but are not limited to, web-based training, document 
and financial processing, GovTrip, and other on-line systems. 
The Committee is concerned that the centralization may 
adversely affect the overall effectiveness and morale of Forest 
Service employees in the field. The Committee believes an 
independent analysis of these centralized services by the 
Government Accountability Office, including a comprehensive 
review of the purchase card program, is necessary to determine 
whether this program has achieved intended efficiencies and 
cost-savings.
    The Committee continues previous language concerning 
interactions with foreign countries to clarify that the Forest 
Service International Program has the authority to sign 
agreements directly with the U.S. Agency for International 
Development, the Department of State, the Millennium Challenge 
Corporation and natural resource institutions around the world 
to address natural resource issues.
    The Committee continues the authority for transfers to the 
National Forest Foundation and the National Fish and Wildlife 
Foundation. Each is provided $3,000,000, an increase above the 
requested level of $1,000,000 for the former and $350,000 for 
the latter. The Committee notes that it is acceptable for these 
foundations to make grants to Federal recipients, including 
Forest Service offices. The Committee recommendation does not 
provide administrative funds for use of the National Forest 
Foundation.
    The recommendation provides that $5,000,000 is available 
for Youth Conservation Corps and Public Lands Corps projects, 
in accordance with P.L. 109-154.
    The Committee recommendation continues the bill language 
from previous years allowing for payments to counties within 
the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area as authorized by 
Public Law 99-663.
    The Committee has also included bill language which extends 
the existing authority for the use of funds for the purpose of 
expenses associated with primary and secondary schooling for 
dependents of agency personnel stationed in Puerto Rico. This 
must be at a cost not in excess of those authorized by the 
Department of Defense for the same area, if public schools 
available in the locality are unable to provide adequately for 
the education of dependents. An extension was requested by the 
Administration.

                DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES


                         Indian Health Service

    The provision of Federal health services to Indians is 
based on a special relationship between Indian Tribes and the 
U.S. Government first set forth in the 1830's by the U.S. 
Supreme Court under Chief Justice John Marshall. Numerous 
treaties, statutes, constitutional provisions, and 
international law have reconfirmed this relationship. Principal 
among these is the Snyder Act of 1921, which provides the basic 
authority for most Indian health services provided by the 
Federal Government to American Indians and Alaska Natives. The 
Indian Health Service (IHS) provides direct health care 
services in 31 hospitals, 61 health centers, 2 school health 
centers, and 30 health stations. Tribes and Tribal groups, 
through contracts and compacts with the IHS, operate 14 
hospitals, 227 health centers, 13 school health centers, and 
102 health stations (including 166 Alaska Native village 
clinics). The IHS, Tribes, and Tribal groups also operate 11 
regional youth substance abuse treatment centers and 2,370 
units of staff quarters.
    The Committee is pleased that this Administration has 
provided historic increases for Native American health care 
programs. These increases reflect Committee concerns from 
previous years and will do much to address shortfalls 
associated with past budget requests that neglected to provide 
for pay cost increases, medical inflation, and growing 
population needs. The Committee has supported these increases 
and looks forward to working with this Administration to focus 
on the health care needs of Native Americans.
    The amounts recommended by the Committee compared with the 
budget estimates by activity are shown in the following table:

                         INDIAN HEALTH SERVICES
 Appropriation enacted, 2009*..........................    $3,190,956,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................     3,639,868,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................     3,657,618,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................      +466,662,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................      +17,750,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $3,657,618,000 for Indian Health 
Services, $466,662,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level 
and $17,750,000 above the budget request. Changes to the budget 
request are detailed below:
    Domestic Violence.--The Committee recommends $10,000,000 to 
continue the initiative to address domestic violence and sexual 
assault, $2,500,000 over the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$2,500,000 above the budget request. The Committee is pleased 
that the Administration also recognizes the significance of 
this problem and has included funding for this initiative in 
its request.
    The Committee remains deeply concerned about the problem of 
domestic violence, particularly violence against women and 
children in Indian Country, but understands that this problem 
cannot be addressed by the Indian Health Service alone. The 
Committee expects the Service to work with the Department of 
the Interior and the Department of Justice to provide the 
needed services and support to victims. The Service is 
encouraged to expand its outreach efforts in communities to 
increase awareness of this problem and work with community 
leaders to find ways to address it at the local level.
    Within the amount provided for domestic violence and sexual 
assault prevention and treatment, the Indian Health Service is 
directed to implement a nationally coordinated Sexual Assault 
Forensic Examiner/Sexual Assault Response Team (SAFE/SART) 
Program to be used to fund IHS and Tribal hospitals through 
competitive grants to build local SAFE and SART capacity. In 
addition, the Service is directed to expand its national 
domestic violence grant program to address the growing need for 
increased Federal, Tribal and Urban Domestic Violence program 
services. IHS is also encouraged to evaluate its system-wide 
sexual assault and domestic violence prevention and response 
capacity.
    The Committee questions the Department of Health and Human 
Services (DHHS) policy on witness subpoenas and is concerned 
that it may hinder the Indian Health Service mission to promote 
the health and well-being of all Native Americans. It has been 
reported that, in cases of rape or sexual assault, bureaucratic 
obstacles imposed by DHHS policy prevent many IHS personnel 
from presenting testimony in these cases. Reportedly, this 
policy has caused cases to be dropped and alleged perpetrators 
to walk free. The Committee finds this unacceptable. The 
Service and the Department are directed to reevaluate and 
revise this policy to ensure that IHS personnel are able to 
testify and present evidence in these cases and to report to 
the Committee on their efforts within 90 days of enactment.
    Dental Health.--The Committee recommends $152,634,000 for 
the dental health program, $10,698,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $1,250,000 above the budget request. The 
Committee is pleased to see progress in reducing the vacancy 
rate among dental professionals but is still concerned about 
the projected retirement rate of recognized specialty dentists. 
The increase provided is for the Headquarters Division of Oral 
Health, to be used by the Director of the Division of Oral 
Health with $1,000,000 to expand the dental residency program 
and $250,000 to expand the summer extern program.
    In addition, the Service is directed to further its dental 
health efforts by utilizing a portion of the health information 
technology funds provided within Hospitals and Health Clinics 
to refine and expedite the deployment schedule of the 
electronic dental record (EDR). The Service is strongly 
encouraged to make implementing the EDR a priority as it works 
to fully implement the overall electronic health record system.
    Alcohol and Substance Abuse.--The Committee recommends 
$194,409,000 for the Alcohol and Substance Abuse program as 
requested, $10,640,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level. The Committee has learned that the Service has not 
reached any agreement with Tribal leaders on how the funds 
appropriated for the methamphetamine prevention and treatment 
initiative from previous years can best be distributed. Given 
the epidemic levels of methamphetamine abuse in Indian Country, 
the Committee believes this program can provide much-needed 
support to communities that struggle with methamphetamine 
abuse. The Committee directs the Service to report within 60 
days of enactment of this Act on how this situation will be 
resolved and how prior year and fiscal year 2010 funds will be 
allocated.
    Indian Health Care Improvement Fund.--The Committee 
recommends $45,543,000 for the Indian Health Care Improvement 
Fund, $30,543,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
the same as the budget request. The Service is directed to 
allocate the increased funding for the Fund to bring those 
units with the highest level of need up to at least 45 percent 
of need before allocating any additional funds to units with 
needs above 45 percent.
    Urban Indian Health Program.--The Committee recommends 
$43,139,000 for the urban health program, $6,950,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $5,000,000 above the budget 
request. From within the increase provided, the Service is 
directed to conduct a new needs assessment of the urban Indian 
health program and the communities it serves.
    Indian Health Professions.--The Committee recommends 
$40,743,000 for Indian health professions, $3,243,000 over the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and the same as the budget 
request. The Service is expected to use health professions 
program funding for loan repayment and scholarship programs to 
encourage increased recruitment and retention of health 
professionals.

    The Committee recommends $394,757,000 for Indian health 
facilities as requested, $4,589,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level.
    The Committee remains concerned about the systemic 
weaknesses in the IHS inventory management system, as 
identified by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). A 
recently released follow-up investigation by the GAO suggests 
these weaknesses persist. The Committee expects the Service to 
ensure that the provision of health care services is not 
adversely affected by these problems and that it is working to 
strengthen administration and accountability. The Service is 
directed to evaluate its inventory management system, identify 
and correct any deficiencies, and provide a detailed report to 
the Committee on its efforts within 30 days of enactment of 
this Act.

                     National Institutes of Health


          NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH SCIENCES

    The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences 
(NIEHS), an agency within the National Institutes of Health, 
was authorized in section 311(a) of the Comprehensive 
Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 
and in section 126(g) of the Superfund Amendments and 
Reauthorization Act of 1986 to conduct certain research and 
worker training activities associated with the nation's 
Hazardous Substance Superfund program.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $78,074,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        79,212,000

    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $79,212,000 for the National 
Institute of Environmental Health Sciences as requested, 
$1,138,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. The 
Committee supports the work of the NIEHS to provide scientific 
research and worker training to address and prevent diseases 
caused by environmental contamination.

            Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry


            TOXIC SUBSTANCES AND ENVIRONMENTAL PUBLIC HEALTH

    The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry 
(ATSDR), an agency of the Public Health Service, was created in 
section 104(i) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980. The ATSDR's primary 
mission is to conduct surveys and screening programs to 
determine relationships between exposure to toxic substances 
and illness. Other activities include the maintenance and 
annual update of a list of hazardous substances most commonly 
found at Superfund sites, the preparation of toxicological 
profiles on each such hazardous substance, consultations on 
health issues relating to exposure to hazardous or toxic 
substances, and the development and implementation of certain 
research activities related to ATSDR's mission.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $74,039,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        76,792,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................        76,792,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................        +2,753,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $76,792,000 for the Agency for 
Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) as requested, 
$2,753,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.
    In recent years, the Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC) has been charging the ATSDR over 16 percent 
for administrative expenses. In fiscal year 2009, the Committee 
placed a 12 percent limit on these administrative expenses and 
directed the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to conduct 
a review on the indirect/administrative costs paid to the CDC. 
Subsequent to the Committee's direction to the GAO, the CDC 
announced plans to re-commission a study to update the way it 
determines administrative costs. The Committee directs ATSDR to 
report the results of the study as soon as available. The 
Committee will make a decision on whether to impose a cap for 
fiscal year 2010 based on the results of both the CDC study and 
the GAO review. The Committee continues to support the work of 
minority health professional schools in the ATSDR effort to 
educate and train within minority and medically underserved 
communities. The Committee urges a greater focus on 
environmental health education and training to promote 
environmental health policy and behavioral change in impacted 
communities.

                        Smithsonian Institution

    The Smithsonian Institution is the world's largest museum 
and research complex, with 19 museums and galleries, 20 
libraries, numerous research centers and the National 
Zoological Park. Funded by both private and Federal sources, 
the Smithsonian is unique in the Federal establishment. Created 
by an act of Congress in 1846 to carry out the trust included 
in James Smithson's will, it has been engaged for more than 150 
years in the ``increase and diffusion of knowledge.'' In 2008, 
the Smithsonian attracted more than 25 million visitors to its 
museums, galleries, and zoological park. Additional millions 
also view Smithsonian traveling exhibitions and participate in 
the annual Folklife Festival on the National Mall. As custodian 
of the National Collections, the Smithsonian is responsible for 
more than 136 million art objects, natural history specimens, 
and artifacts. These scientific and cultural collections are a 
vital resource for global research and conservation efforts. 
The collections are displayed for the education and enjoyment 
of visitors and are available for research by the staff of the 
Institution and by thousands of visiting students, scientists, 
and historians each year.
    The Committee recommends $774,161,000 for all Smithsonian 
Institution accounts, an increase of $42,761,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 level. In addition, $15,000,000 appropriated 
for the Legacy Fund in fiscal year 2008 is transferred to the 
facilities capital account for high priority deferred 
maintenance and revitalization projects. The amounts 
recommended by the Committee for the Smithsonian Institution, 
compared with the budget estimates by activity, are shown in 
the following table:
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    Appropriation, 2009...............................       +40,761,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................                 0
    The Committee recommends $634,161,000 for salaries and 
expenses as requested, $40,761,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level. The Committee recognizes that the Smithsonian 
Institution has implemented many changes to improve governance 
and accountability. The Committee notes that both the GAO and 
the Inspector General have stated that considerable progress 
has been made, but that continued public and Congressional 
oversight is important. The Committee expects to get regular 
updates as the governance committee recommendations and new 
strategic plan continue to be implemented. The Committee 
recommendation makes most funds available until September 30, 
2011. The Committee is very interested in the Smithsonian's 
focus on education and outreach; there is great promise for 
enhanced contact with more citizens all over the Nation, as 
well as visitors to the remarkable facilities in Washington, 
DC, and elsewhere.
    It has come to the Committee's attention that some 
Smithsonian Institution collections, such as the priceless 
military uniform collection at the National Museum of American 
History, may be stored in unsatisfactory conditions. Proper 
care and storage of these collections is paramount. The 
Committee urges the Smithsonian to take the necessary steps to 
preserve these irreplaceable historical collections and ensure 
that preservation of its collections is made a high priority.

                           FACILITIES CAPITAL

    Budget estimate, 2010.............................      +15,000,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $140,000,000 for facilities 
capital, $17,000,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level 
and $15,000,000 above the budget request. The increase above 
the request should be used for high priority, deferred 
maintenance and revitalization projects.
    The Committee bill does not include funding for the Legacy 
Fund, as requested, a decrease of $15,000,000 below the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level.
    The Committee recommendation fully supports the budget 
request and provides additional funding to maintain the 
revitalization program at approximately the same level of 
effort as in fiscal year 2009. The Committee recognizes the GAO 
reports and other independent analyses that document the 
Smithsonian's revitalization and deferred maintenance backlog 
of $2.5 billion. The Committee recommendation fully funds the 
$20,000,000 requested for the design of the new National Museum 
of African American History and Culture, which will be built 
next to the Washington Monument on the National Mall.

           ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISION, SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION

    The Committee recommendation includes bill language which 
transfers $14,766,000 appropriated in fiscal year 2008 (Public 
Law 110-161; 121 Stat. 2140), from the Legacy Fund into the 
facilities capital account so these funds can be utilized by 
the Smithsonian Institution under the same terms and conditions 
that apply to other facilities capital funds.

                        National Gallery of Art

    The National Gallery of Art is one of the world's great 
galleries. Its magnificent works of art are displayed for the 
benefit of millions of visitors from this and other nations. 
The National Gallery of Art serves as an example of a 
successful cooperative endeavor between private individuals and 
institutions and the Federal Government. The many special 
exhibitions shown in the Gallery and throughout the country 
bring great art treasures to Washington, DC and the Nation. In 
1999, the Gallery opened a sculpture garden, which provides an 
opportunity for the public to have an outdoor, artistic 
experience in a contemplative setting.
    The amounts recommended by the Committee compared with the 
budget request and 2009 enacted levels are shown by account, 
program area and selected activity in the following table.

expenses of the National Gallery of Art, $5,358,000 above the 
fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $1,760,000 above the 
request. Within the amount provided, the Committee has restored 
the funds for the Gallery's Special Exhibition program. This 
successful program, a critical part of the Gallery's 
educational mission, joins public and private sector efforts to 
bring major works of art from public and private collections 
around the world for the enjoyment of millions who visit the 
Gallery and its web site. The Special Exhibitions program 
extends the educational mission of the Gallery by contributing 
to a variety of complementary educational events, including 
adult and student tours and family and teacher workshops.
    Bill Language.--The Committee has included bill language 
which specifies the amount provided for Special Exhibitions.

repair, restoration and renovation of buildings at the National 
Gallery of Art, $38,891,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level. The Committee has included construction funds necessary 
to repair a systemic structural failure of the anchors which 
support the National Gallery's East Building exterior marble 
veneer. A group of Committee members viewed the failure and 
agree with the Gallery and expert engineering consultants that 
the situation poses a severe safety hazard to both visitors and 
staff of the Gallery. The funds provided here are only a 
portion of the funds the Gallery will need to remove, repair 
and reinstall all 16,200 panels on the face of the East 
Building.

             John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

    The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is a 
living memorial to the late President Kennedy and is the 
National Center for the Performing Arts. The Center houses nine 
stages, six of which have a total of more than 7,300 seats. The 
Center consists of over 1.5 million square feet of usable floor 
space with visitation averaging 10,000 on a daily basis. The 
support systems in the building, the operation and maintenance 
of which are funded through this account, often operate at 
capacity 18 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

    The Committee recommends $25,000,000 for operations and 
maintenance, $3,700,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $2,500,000 above the request. The additional funding 
may be used to assist arts organizations with tools to manage 
challenges posed by the economy, such as board governance, 
budgeting, marketing, technology and other areas pertinent to 
managing a vital performing arts organization in a troubled 
economy. The Committee must be notified in advance of any 
funding used for this purpose.

    The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is a 
unique institution with a special mission to serve as a living 
memorial to President Woodrow Wilson. The Center performs this 
mandate through its role as an international institute for 
advanced study as well as a facilitator for discussions among 
scholars, public officials, journalists and business leaders 
from across the country on major long-term issues facing this 
Nation and the world.

    The Committee recommends $12,225,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for 
Scholars, an increase of $2,225,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $2,000,000 above the request.

    Budget estimate, 2010.............................       +8,685,000*Total does not include funding provided in the American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    The Committee recommends $170,000,000 for the National 
Endowment for the Arts (NEA), $15,000,000 above the fiscal year 
2009 enacted level and $8,685,000 above the budget request. The 
Committee has recommended this increase in recognition of the 
high quality of programs initiated by the Endowment over the 
last several years and the broad and bipartisan support it 
garners. The Committee has been especially pleased with the 
American Masterpieces, Big Read and Operation Homecoming 
initiatives. Funding for the Endowment was reduced by over 40 
percent in the mid-1990's, and the $15,000,000 increase 
recommended for fiscal year 2010 continues the process of 
restoring funding to historic levels. All programs of the NEA 
will benefit from this increase.
    Bill language.--The Committee agrees with the request to 
reinstate four positions on the National Council on the Arts 
that were eliminated in 1996. This increase will enable the 
National Endowment of the Arts to receive counsel and advice 
from a more diverse body that represents a broader array of 
arts disciplines and fields.

National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), $15,000,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and $8,685,000 above the 
budget request. The Committee does not agree with the proposal 
to fund the National Capital Arts and Cultural Affairs Grant 
program through the NEH. Instead, the Committee continues 
administration of the National Capital Arts and Cultural 
Affairs Grant program through the Commission of Fine Arts, as 
in prior years. The allocation of funding among these 
activities is shown in the following table:

                        Commission of Fine Arts

    The Commission of Fine Arts was established in 1910 to meet 
the need for a permanent body to advise the government on 
matters pertaining to the arts, and particularly, to guide the 
architectural development of Washington, DC. Over the years the 
Commission's scope has been expanded to include advice on areas 
such as plans for parks, public buildings, location of National 
monuments, and development of public squares. As a result, the 
Commission annually reviews approximately 500 projects. In 
fiscal year 1988 the Commission was given responsibility for 
the National Capital Arts and Cultural Affairs program.

increase of $60,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted level. 
The Committee has included bill language requested by the 
Administration that permits the Commission to accept gifts.

*The President requested these funds under the National Endowment for
  the Humanities.

    The National Capital Arts and Cultural Affairs program was 
established in Public Law 99-190 to support artistic and 
cultural programs in the Nation's Capital. The Committee 
recommends $10,000,000 as requested, $500,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level. The Committee has not accepted the 
President's request to transfer administration of this program 
to the National Endowment for the Humanities, nor to 
fundamentally alter the nature and purpose of the program by 
eliminating the criteria for grant applicants. Bill language 
has been included in Title IV General Provisions to increase 
the authorization for this program to $10,000,000 and the 
maximum allowable grant level to $650,000 per recipient per 
year.

               Advisory Council on Historic Preservation


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 established 
the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation. The Advisory 
Council was reauthorized as part of the Omnibus Parks and 
Public Lands Management Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-333). The 
Council's mandate is to further the National policy of 
preserving historic and cultural resources for the benefit of 
present and future generations. The Council advises the 
President and Congress on preservation matters and provides 
consultation on historic properties threatened by Federal 
action.

    The Committee recommends $5,908,000 for salaries and 
expenses of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, as 
requested, which is an increase of $410,000 above the fiscal 
year 2009 enacted level.

                  National Capital Planning Commission


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The National Capital Planning Act of 1952 designated the 
National Capital Planning Commission as the central planning 
agency for the Federal government in the National Capital 
Region. The three major functions of the Commission are to 
prepare and adopt the Federal elements of the National Capital 
Comprehensive Plan, prepare an annual report on a five-year 
projection of the Federal Capital Improvement Program, and 
review plans and proposals submitted to the Commission.

enacted level.

                United States Holocaust Memorial Museum


                       HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM

    In 1980, Congress passed legislation creating a 65 member 
Holocaust Memorial Council with the mandate to create and 
oversee a living memorial/museum to victims of the Holocaust. 
The museum opened in April 1993. Construction costs for the 
museum came solely from donated funds raised by the U.S. 
Holocaust Memorial Museum Campaign and appropriated funds were 
used for planning and development of programmatic components, 
overall administrative support, and annual commemorative 
observances. Since the opening of the museum, appropriated 
funds have been provided to pay for the ongoing operating costs 
of the museum as authorized by Public Law 102-529 and Public 
Law 106-292.
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $47,260,000

    The Committee recommends $48,551,000 for the Holocaust 
Memorial Museum as requested, an increase of $1,291,000 above 
the fiscal year 2009 enacted level.

                             Presidio Trust


                          PRESIDIO TRUST FUND
 Appropriation enacted, 2009...........................       $17,450,000
Budget estimate, 2010.................................        17,230,000
Recommended, 2010.....................................        23,200,000
Comparison:
    Appropriation, 2009...............................        +5,750,000
    Budget estimate, 2010.............................        +5,970,000
    The Committee recommends $23,200,000 for the Presidio Trust 
Fund, an increase of $5,750,000 above the fiscal year 2009 
enacted level and $5,970,000 above the budget request. These 
funds are used to support the transition of the Presidio Army 
base in San Francisco to a mixed use, financially independent 
facility by the year 2013, as authorized by Public Law 104-333. 
Federal appropriations have been provided to the Presidio Trust 
since 1999 based on the self-sufficiency plan required by the 
basic legislation. Unfortunately, the accumulated effect of 
multiple years of across-the-board reductions has left the 
Federal government approximately $12,000,000 in arrears on its 
total commitment under the self-sufficiency plan. The increase 
recommended by the Committee over the President's request is 
intended to continue to address this shortfall.
    Within the funds provided, the Committee encourages the 
Presidio Trust to establish a task force that will meet with 
the Presidio Board of Directors on matters related to the reuse 
and revitalization of Fort Scott, particularly taking into 
account the Presidio Trust's mandate under the Presidio Trust 
Act.

                Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

    The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission was 
established by Congress in 1999 by Public Law 106-79 for the 
purpose of creating an appropriate, permanent memorial to 
Dwight D. Eisenhower. The Commission has escalated its work 
over the last two years in identifying the location for the 
Memorial, finalizing a design and developing a fund raising 
plan.

expenses, the same as the fiscal year 2009 enacted level and 
$1,000,000 below the budget request.

    The Committee recommends $10,000,000 for capital 
construction, $10,000,000 above the fiscal year 2009 enacted 
level and $6,000,000 below the budget request. The Committee 
has decreased funding because not all of the request can be 
spent in fiscal year 2010. The amount provided will begin the 
first phase of design planning for the Memorial. The Commission 
is encouraged to continue its fundraising efforts and refine 
its plan to finance a significant amount of construction costs 
through private funding.

                      TITLE IV--GENERAL PROVISIONS

    Section 401 continues a provision providing for public 
availability of information on consulting services contracts.
    Section 402 continues a provision prohibiting activities to 
promote public support or opposition to legislative proposals.
    Section 403 continues a provision providing for annual 
appropriations unless expressly provided otherwise in this Act.
    Section 404 continues a provision limiting the use of 
personal cooks, chauffeurs or servants.
    Section 405 provides for restrictions on departmental 
assessments unless approved by the Committees on 
Appropriations.
    Section 406 prohibits the transfer of funds unless provided 
in this or other Acts.
    Section 407 continues a limitation on accepting and 
processing applications for patents and on the patenting of 
Federal lands; permits processing of grandfathered 
applications; and permits third-party contractors to process 
grandfathered applications.
    Section 408 continues a provision limiting payments for 
contract support costs in past years to the funds available in 
law and accompanying report language in those years for the 
Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Indian Health Service.
    Section 409 continues a provision allowing Forest Service 
land management plans to be more than 15 years old if the 
Secretary of Agriculture is acting in good faith to update such 
plans.
    Section 410 continues a provision limiting preleasing, 
leasing, and related activities within the boundaries of 
National Monuments.
    Section 411 includes technical changes to a previous 
provision providing the Secretary of the Interior and the 
Secretary of Agriculture the authority to enter into reciprocal 
agreements with foreign wildfire organizations concerning the 
tort liability of firefighters.
    Section 412 continues a provision authorizing the Secretary 
of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture to give 
consideration to rural communities, local and non-profit 
groups, and disadvantaged workers in entering into contracts 
for hazardous fuels and watershed projects.
    Section 413 continues a provision which restricts funding 
for acquisition of land from being used for declarations of 
taking or complaints in condemnation.
    Section 414 amends existing law to continue for one year 
certain authorities to renew grazing permits or leases 
administered by the Forest Service or Department of the 
Interior. This will allow time for the agencies to complete the 
required environmental reviews. The Committee recognizes that 
the increasing numbers of permits expiring, increased costs for 
processing, and litigation, have resulted in a significant 
backlog and workload in processing permits. The Committee 
remains supportive of these renewals in an effort to avoid 
unnecessary hardship and administrative expense for existing 
permittees, the Bureau of Land Management, the Forest Service, 
and interested members of the public. The Committee has 
provided $1,000,000 for the BLM range management activity to 
help reduce this considerable backlog. Those funds should be 
targeted to those areas where litigation is causing significant 
delays. Further, the Committee also directs the Secretaries of 
Interior and Agriculture to, within 60 days of enactment of 
this Act, submit a report to the House and Senate Committees 
making legislative, programmatic and resource recommendations 
necessary to ensure that all permits are reviewed and processed 
in a timely manner.
    Section 415 amends the National Foundation on the Arts and 
the Humanities Act of 1965 to reinstate four positions to the 
National Council on the Arts, and increases the number of 
members necessary for the National Council on the Arts to 
constitute a quorum.
    Section 416 increases the authorization for the National 
Arts and Cultural Affairs program to $10,000,000 and the 
maximum allowable grant level to $650,000 per recipient per 
year.
    Section 417 extends an existing pilot program for the sale 
of forest botanical products by the Forest Service through 
fiscal year 2014. This program provides a mechanism to fund the 
environmental analyses and administrative tasks necessary for a 
successful, small program which provides sustainable harvests 
of certain botanical products, which aids rural communities.
    Section 418 provides that the payment of bonuses for coal 
leases on Federal lands be treated in the same way that the 
government treats oil and gas leases. The Mineral Leasing Act 
(30 U.S.C. 201(a)(1)) and current regulations allow payment for 
many coal leases to be deferred over five years and not paid 
over one year as is the case for all oil and gas leases. The 
Committee recommendation requires that coal leases will be 
treated in the same manner as oil and gas leases on Federal 
lands and waters. The coal industry on BLM-managed lands is now 
a mature industry. The deferral provision was originally 
established to encourage coal mining and establishment of new 
mines. Additional revenue obtained for the Federal government 
during fiscal year 2010 is estimated at $207,000,000. The 
States where the coal is leased will also gain a similar 
amount.
    Section 419 provides that for fiscal year 2010, as 
requested by the Administration, geothermal energy receipts 
will be directed back to the historic formula of 50 percent to 
the States and 50 percent to the Treasury.
    Section 420 extends a previous successful authority known 
as the Colorado Good Neighbor Act authority for four years. 
This authority allows for the Secretary of Agriculture, via 
cooperative agreement or contract, to permit the Colorado State 
Forest Service to perform certain watershed restoration and 
protection services on national forest system lands in the 
State of Colorado where similar or complementary watershed 
restoration and protection services are being performed on 
adjacent State or private lands. The types of services include 
treatment of insect infected trees, reduction of hazardous 
fuels, and other activities to restore or improve watersheds or 
fish and wildlife habitat across ownership boundaries.
    Section 421 defers an Ultradeepwater oil and gas research 
and development grant directed by the Energy Policy Act of 
2005.
    Section 422 amends Section 302(a) of the Secure Rural 
Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000 (16 
U.S.C.5 7142(a)) to allow counties to use their funds to pay 
the salaries and benefits of county employees who supervise 
persons performing mandatory community service on Federal 
lands.
    Section 423 incorporates the allocation for the projects 
and purposes as outlined in the table titled ``Congressionally 
Directed Spending'' in this report. This is in addition to the 
allocation requirements specified in this report for ``National 
Park Service--Historic Preservation Fund'' for Save America's 
Treasures and ``Environmental Protection Agency--State and 
Tribal Assistance Grants'' for special project grants for the 
construction of drinking water, wastewater and storm 
infrastructure and for water quality protection.
    Section 424 requires the President to submit a report to 
the Appropriations committees no later than 120 days after the 
fiscal year 2011 budget is submitted to Congress describing in 
detail all Federal agency obligations and expenditures for 
climate change programs and activities sin fiscal years 2008, 
2009 and 2010.
    Section 425 prohibits the use of funds made available in 
this or any other Act to implement any rule that requires 
mandatory reporting of greenhouse gas emissions from manure 
management systems.
    Section 426 provides that no funds in this or prior Acts 
may be used to release detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to 
the United States territories of Guam, American Samoa, the 
United States Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of the Northern 
Mariana Islands, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. It also 
prohibits the use of funds to transfer detainees to these 
territories until two months after the President submits a 
detailed plan regarding the proposed disposition of detainees. 
Detainees from Guantanamo may not be transferred or released to 
the freely associated States, including the Federated States of 
Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the 
Republic of Palau unless the President submits information 
about the transfers 30 days prior to such transfer.
    Section 427 provides that no funds in this or any other Act 
may be used to promulgate or implement any regulation requiring 
the issuance of permits under title V of the clean Air Act for 
carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, water vapor, or methane 
emissions resulting from biological processes associated with 
livestock production.

                    BILL-WIDE REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

                        Constitutional Authority

    Clause 3(d)(1) of rule XIII requires each committee report 
on a public bill or joint resolution to contain a statement 
citing the specific powers granted to Congress in the 
Constitution to enact the law proposed by the bill or joint 
resolution.
    The Committee on Appropriations bases its authority to 
report this legislation on clause 7 of section 9 of article I 
of the Constitution of the United States, which states ``No 
money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of 
Appropriations made by Law. . . .''
    Appropriations contained in this Act are made pursuant to 
this specific power granted by the Constitution.

         Statement of General Performance Goals and Objectives

    Pursuant to clause 3(c)(4) of rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the following is a statement of 
general performance goals and objectives for which this measure 
authorizes funding:
    The Committee on Appropriations considers program 
performance, including a program's success in developing and 
attaining outcome-related goals and objectives, in developing 
funding recommendations.

                 Changes in Application of Existing Law

    Pursuant to clause 3, rule XIII of the Rules of the House 
of Representatives, the following Statements are submitted 
describing the effect of provisions in the accompanying bill, 
which directly or indirectly change the application of existing 
law. In most instances these provisions have been included in 
prior appropriations Acts.
    The bill includes the following changes in application of 
existing law:

                              OVERALL BILL

    Providing that certain appropriations remain available 
until expended or extends the availability of funds beyond the 
fiscal year where programs or projects are continuing but for 
which legislation does not specifically authorize such extended 
availability. This authority tends to result in savings by 
preventing the practice of committing funds on low priority 
projects at the end of the fiscal year to avoid losing the 
funds.
    Limiting, in certain instances, the obligation of funds for 
particular functions or programs. These limitations include 
restrictions on the obligation of funds for administrative 
expenses, travel expenses, the use of consultants, and 
programmatic areas within the overall jurisdiction of a 
particular agency.
    Limiting official entertainment or reception and 
representation expenses for selected agencies in the bill.
    Continuing ongoing activities of those Federal agencies, 
which require annual authorization or additional legislation, 
which has not been enacted.

       DIRECTED SPENDING BY CONGRESS AND BY THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

    This bill contains $3.4 billion in grant funding awarded 
solely at the discretion of the Administration, and $312 
million in funding requested by the President for specific 
projects. In addition to placing a one-year moratorium on 
earmarks in appropriations bills enacted in 2007 so that new 
rules could be put in place, the Committee has subsequently 
taken unprecedented action to increase transparency and reduce 
funding for earmarks. The bill continues to further reduce 
earmarks in 2010, by 20 percent below 2009. In this bill since 
2006, the total funding earmarked has been reduced by 35 
percent. This year earmarked funding will equal 1 percent of 
the cost of the bill. It should also be noted that under the 
policies adopted by the Committee the use of member earmarks 
awarded to for-profit entities as a functional equivalent of no 
bid contracts is ended. In cases where the Committee funds an 
earmark designated for a for-profit entity, the Committee 
includes legislative language requiring the Executive Branch to 
nonetheless issue a request for proposal that gives other 
entities an opportunity to apply and requires the agency to 
evaluate all bids received and make a decision based on merit. 
This gives the original designee an opportunity to be brought 
to the attention of the agency, but with the possibility that 
an alternative entity may be selected.

             MINORITY VIEWS OF JERRY LEWIS AND MIKE SIMPSON

    We appreciate the reasonable and even-handed manner in 
which Chairman Dicks has conducted the business of the Interior 
and Environment subcommittee. While we may disagree about the 
need for a 17 percent increase in this year's subcommittee 
allocation, our work together has been a bipartisan, 
collaborative effort. We are certainly not going to agree on 
every issue before us, but even when we disagree, we continue 
to work well with Chairman Dicks.
    We'd also like to commend the Chairman for the 
extraordinary oversight activity of our subcommittee this year. 
Oversight is one of this committee's most important functions 
and we've upheld that responsibility by holding 20 committee 
hearings since the beginning of the year involving over 100 
witnesses. We don't know of many subcommittees that can match 
that record.
    We also want to applaud the Chairman's decision to provide 
full pay and fixed costs for each of the agencies under the 
subcommittee's jurisdiction. We remain concerned by the fact 
that the President's budget submission for the U.S. Forest 
Service covered only 60 percent of pay and fixed costs while 
the budget request for the Department of the Interior included 
one-hundred percent of pay and fixed costs. To date, the 
Committee has received no explanation or justification from the 
Administration for this discrepancy.
    We are also pleased by the needed attention this 
legislation provides to our Native American brothers and 
sisters. There are many unmet needs within Indian Country--in 
education, health care, law enforcement, drug abuse prevention, 
and other areas--and this bill does a great deal to address 
these issues.
    We agree with Chairman Dicks on many things including our 
obligation to be good stewards of our environment and public 
lands for future generations. However, we part ways when it 
comes to the need for an allocation as generous as the one 
Chairman Obey has provided for this bill.
    The 302(b) allocation for this bill is $32.3 billion, a 
$4.7 billion, or 17 percent, increase over last year's enacted 
level. This increase comes on the heels of historic increases 
in this subcommittee's spending in recent years.
    Interior and Environment subcommittee spending between FY 
2007 and FY 2009--including base bills, emergency 
supplementals, and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act--
has increased by 41 percent--and that's before this year's 17 
percent increase.
    Chairman Obey is fond of saying, ``Show me a smaller 
problem and I'll show you a smaller solution.'' We may not be 
able to show the Chairman a smaller problem, but we can show 
him an historical bigger problem where the ``solution'' of more 
and more deficit spending has not worked--including the Great 
Depression in the 1930's and Japan in the 1990's.
    But it isn't just the spending that concerns us. This 
legislation is funding large increases in programs without 
having clearly defined goals or sufficient processes in place 
to measure the return on our investment. We are making rapid 
investments in water, climate change, renewable energy, and 
other areas--all of them worthy endeavors--but with relatively 
little planning and coordination across multiple agencies and 
the rest of government.
    Our country has some serious environmental challenges that 
need to be addressed. And we have an overly generous allocation 
to meet many of those needs. But, with all due respect to 
Chairman Obey--too often we believe that our commitment to an 
issue is measured by the amount of money we spend rather than 
how we're spending the money. History has shown us that bigger 
budgets do not necessarily produce better results.
    The climate change issue is an illustration of this point. 
``Climate change'' is today what the term ``homeland security'' 
was in the days and months following the terrorist attacks of 
9/11. Anyone that came to our offices to discuss an issue spoke 
of it in the context of ``homeland security.'' The argument 
was, ``We have to have XYZ because our homeland security 
depends upon it.''
    Well, today many of our priorities are related to climate 
change. We agree with Chairman Dicks that it's an issue we need 
to study carefully and know more about. It's affecting the 
intensity of our wildfires and even the duration of our fire 
seasons. But what have we learned from the money this 
subcommittee and other committees have already provided? Are we 
spending $420 million on climate change next year to learn 
something new or to re-learn what we already know?
    We're also concerned that many climate change functions 
within this bill won't be coordinated with similar efforts 
undertaken by other Federal agencies resulting in a duplication 
of efforts. We ought to require coordination across the entire 
Federal government on an issue as important as this.
    It's for this reason that the minority offered an 
amendment--adopted during full committee consideration--
requiring the President to report to Congress 120 days after 
submission of his FY 2011 budget request on all obligations and 
expenditures across government on climate change programs and 
activities for FY 2008, FY2009, and FY2010. It's not because 
we're opposed to climate change programs but because they need 
to be coordinated government-wide.
    Given the uncertain economic times our country is facing, 
we're also troubled by the unsustainable pattern of spending in 
this legislation. This subcommittee and this Congress ought to 
be as concerned about the impact of too much spending as we are 
about the potential impact of climate change and other issues.
    Chairman Dicks has spoken on many occasions about what he 
describes as ``the dark days'' and ``the misguided policies and 
priorities of the previous Administration.'' Still, for any 
perceived or real inadequacies of past policies or budgets, it 
would be a mistake for any of us to believe that we can simply 
spend our way to a solution for every challenge we face.
    The Federal Reserve Chairman--Ben Bernanke--recently told 
Congress that it's time for the Obama Administration to develop 
a strategy to address record deficits or risk long-term damage 
to our economy. He said, ``Unless we demonstrate a strong 
commitment to fiscal sustainability in the longer term, we will 
have neither financial stability nor healthy economic growth.''
    A good bill is a balanced bill. But providing a 
disproportionate level of funding to one agency creates an 
imbalance that undermines the legitimate needs of other 
deserving agencies. That is why we question a $10.5 billion 
budget for the EPA--a 37 percent increase from just last year. 
This is on top of the $7.2 billion the agency received in the 
stimulus package and the $7.6 billion it received in the 
enacted 2009 Interior bill. Taken together, the EPA will 
receive over $25 billion in this calendar year alone. That's 
about the size of this subcommittee's entire budget just two 
years ago.
    We're including a series of tables and charts at the 
conclusion of these views illustrating the unprecedented levels 
of spending in this legislation. These include major increases 
by Title, as well as a summary of increases by agency under the 
jurisdiction of this subcommittee.
    While the EPA will receive an extraordinary, historic 
funding increase, it's worth noting that the U.S. Forest 
Service was recently rated as one of the worst places to work 
in the federal government by a study conducted by the Office of 
Personnel Management. It isn't clear why Forest Service 
employees feel as they do but it may be linked to the 
incredible funding challenges the Service has faced in recent 
years due to the growing cost of fire suppression.
    From our hearings we know that almost 50 percent of the 
Forest Service budget is now consumed by the costs of fighting 
wildfires. In past years, the Forest Service has had to borrow 
hundreds of millions of dollars from other accounts just to pay 
for fire suppression. Without any question, this creates 
uncertainty among Forest Service employees.
    President Obama is to be commended for tackling the issue 
of budgeting for fire suppression by proposing a fully-funded 
fire suppression budget as well as a contingency reserve fund. 
We commend Chairman Dicks for providing the Forest Service with 
resources to address many fire-related needs. Still, based upon 
recent fire patterns and the monumental increase in demand for 
fire suppression dollars, we felt strongly that the wildland 
fire contingency reserve fund should be funded at the 
President's request level of $357 million. This reserve fund is 
similar to the emergency funding source contained in the FLAME 
Act which passed the House in March on an overwhelming 412-3 
vote.
    That is why the minority offered an amendment--adopted 
during full committee consideration--that increased the fire 
contingency reserve fund from $250 million in the Chairman's 
mark to the President's request level of $357 million. If 
virtually every other item in this legislation is funded at or 
above the President's request level, there is no justifiable 
reason to exclude fire suppression.
    We paid for this increase by rescinding $107 million from 
the EPA's prior year balances. According to a May, 2009 report 
issued by the EPA Inspector General's office, the EPA presently 
has $163 million on the books that have been sitting there 
unspent since 1999. The EPA does some good work but if these 
dollars haven't been spent in 10 years, we ought to put them to 
good use fighting fires.
    In closing, while Chairman Dicks has done a fine job 
addressing many critical issues through this legislation, we 
don't believe that during this time of extreme economic 
uncertainty that a $4.7 billion, or 17 percent, increase over 
the FY09 enacted level is justified or warranted. This 
unprecedented increase follows a $3.2 billion, or 13 percent, 
increase between FY2008 and FY2009 spending bills as well as an 
$11 billion infusion from the American Recovery and 
Reinvestment Act.
    It is our hope that between now and conference negotiations 
with the Senate later this year we can address the most 
egregious spending issues and seek bipartisan consensus on a 
reasonable, sustainable subcommittee allocation. Our sincere 
hope is to continue working together with Chairman Dicks to 
fashion a balanced, responsible, and sustainable conference 
report worthy of broad, bipartisan support.
                                                       Jerry Lewis.
