GENERAL PROVISION, THIS TITLE

    SEC. 1401. EMERGENCY STEEL LOAN GUARANTEE PROGRAM. (a) SHORT TITLE- This section may be cited as the ‘Emergency Steel Loan Guarantee Act of 1999’.

    (b) CONGRESSIONAL FINDINGS- Congress finds that--

      (1) the United States steel industry has been severely harmed by a record surge of more than 40,000,000 tons of steel imports into the United States in 1998, caused by the world financial crisis;

      (2) this surge in imports resulted in the loss of more than 10,000 steel worker jobs in 1998, and was the imminent cause of 3 bankruptcies by medium-sized steel companies, Acme Steel, Laclede Steel, and Geneva Steel;

      (3) the crisis also forced almost all United States steel companies into--

        (A) reduced volume, lower prices, and financial losses; and

        (B) an inability to obtain credit for continued operations and reinvestment in facilities;

      (4) the crisis also has affected the willingness of private banks and investment institutions to make loans to the U.S. steel industry for continued operation and reinvestment in facilities;

      (5) these steel bankruptcies, job losses, and financial losses are also having serious negative effects on the tax base of cities, counties, and States, and on the essential health, education, and municipal services that these government entities provide to their citizens; and

      (6) a strong steel industry is necessary to the adequate defense preparedness of the United States in order to have sufficient steel available to build the ships, tanks, planes, and armaments necessary for the national defense.

      (2) the prospective earning power of that company, together with the character and value of the security pledged, furnish reasonable assurance of repayment of the loan to be guaranteed in accordance with its terms;

      (3) the loan to be guaranteed bears interest at a rate determined by the Board to be reasonable, taking into account the current average yield on outstanding obligations of the United States with remaining periods of maturity comparable to the maturity of such loan; and

      (3) if prices do not increase soon, the United States could lose at least half its marginal wells, which in aggregate produce as much oil as the United States imports from Saudi Arabia;

      (4) oil and gas prices are unlikely to increase for at least several years;

      (5) declining production, well abandonment, and greatly reduced exploration and development are shrinking the domestic oil and gas industry;

      (6) the world’s richest oil producing regions in the Middle East are experiencing increasingly greater political instability;

      (7) United Nations policy may make Iraq the swing oil producing nation, thereby granting Saddam Hussein tremendous power;

      (8) reliance on foreign oil for more than 60 percent of our daily oil and gas consumption is a national security threat;

      (9) the level of United States oil security is directly related to the level of domestic production of oil, natural gas liquids, and natural gas; and

    SEC. 2322. SENSE OF THE SENATE: EXPRESSING THE SENSE OF THE SENATE THAT A PENDING SALE OF WHEAT AND OTHER AGRICULTURAL COMMODITIES TO IRAN BE APPROVED. (a) The Senate finds:

      (1) That an export license is pending for the sale of United States wheat and other agricultural commodities to the nation of Iran.

      (2) That this sale of agricultural commodities would increase United States agricultural exports by about $500,000,000, at a time when agricultural exports have fallen dramatically.

      (3) That sanctions on food are counterproductive to the interest of United States farmers and to the people who would be fed by these agricultural exports.

    (b) Now therefore, it is the sense of the Senate that the pending license for this sale of United States wheat and other agricultural commodities to Iran be approved by the administration.

    SEC. 2323. PROHIBITION. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, prior to eight months after Congress receives the report of the National Gambling Impact Study Commission, the Secretary of the Interior shall not--

      (2) issue a notice of proposed rulemaking for, or promulgate, or in any way implement, any similar regulations to provide for procedures for gaming activities under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (25 U.S.C. 2701 et seq.), in any case in which a State asserts a defense of sovereign immunity to a lawsuit brought by an Indian tribe in a Federal court under section 11(d)(7) of that Act (25 U.S.C. 2710(d)(7)) to compel the State to participate in compact negotiations for class III gaming (as that term is defined in section 4(8) of that Act (25 U.S.C. 2703(8))).

      (3) approve class III gaming on Indian lands by any means other than a Tribal-State compact entered into between a State and a tribe.

    (b) DEFINITIONS-

      (1) The terms ‘class III gaming’, ‘Secretary’, ‘Indian lands’, and ‘Tribal-State compact’ shall have the same meaning for the purposes of this section as those terms have under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (25 U.S.C. 2701 et seq.).

      (2) The ‘report of the National Gambling Impact Study Commission’ is the report described in section 4(b) of Public Law 104-169 (18 U.S.C. sec. 1955 note).

    SEC. 2324. FINDINGS AND SENSE OF SENATE REGARDING SEQUENTIAL BILLING POLICY FOR HOME HEALTH PAYMENTS UNDER THE MEDICARE PROGRAM. (a) FINDINGS- The Senate finds the following:

      (1) Section 4611 of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 included a provision that transfers financial responsibility for certain home health visits under the medicare program under title XVIII of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395 et seq.) from part A to part B of such program.

      (2) The sole intent of the transfer described in paragraph (1) was to extend the solvency of the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund under section 1817 of such Act (42 U.S.C. 1395i).

      (3) The transfer described in paragraph (1) was supposed to be ‘seamless’ so as not to disrupt the provision of home health services under the medicare program.

      (4) The Health Care Financing Administration has imposed a sequential billing policy that prohibits home health agencies under the medicare program from submitting claims for reimbursement for home health services provided to a beneficiary unless all claims for reimbursement for home health services that were previously provided to such beneficiary have been completely resolved.

      (5) The Health Care Financing Administration has also expanded medical reviews of claims for reimbursement submitted by home health agencies, resulting in a significant slowdown nationwide in the processing of such claims.

      (6) The sequential billing policy described in paragraph (4), coupled with the slowdown in claims processing described in paragraph (5), has substantially increased the cash flow problems of home health agencies because payments are often delayed by at least 3 months.

      (7) The vast majority of home health agencies under the medicare program are small businesses that cannot operate with significant cash flow problems.

      (8) There are many other elements under the medicare program relating to home health agencies, such as the interim payment system under section 1861(v)(1)(L) of such Act (42 U.S.C. 1395x(v)(1)(L)), that are creating financial problems for home health agencies, thereby forcing more than 2,200 home health agencies nationwide to close since the date of enactment of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997.

    (b) SENSE OF THE SENATE- It is the sense of the Senate that the Health Care Financing Administration should--

      (1) evaluate and monitor the use of the sequential billing policy (as described in subsection (a)(4)) in making payments to home health agencies under the medicare program under title XVIII of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395 et seq.);

      (2) ensure that--

        (A) contract fiscal intermediaries under the medicare program are timely in their random medical review of claims for reimbursement submitted by home health agencies; and

        (B) such intermediaries adhere to Health Care Financing Administration instructions that limit the number of claims for reimbursement held for such review for any particular home health agency to no more than 10 percent of the total number of claims submitted by the agency; and

      (3) ensure that such intermediaries are considering and implementing constructive alternatives, such as expedited reviews of claims for reimbursement, for home health agencies with no history of billing problems who have cash flow problems due to random medical reviews and sequential billing.

    SEC. 2325. A payment of $800,000 from the total amount of $1,000,000 for construction of the Pike’s Peak Summit House, as specified in Conference Report 105-337, accompanying the Department of the Interior and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for fiscal year 1998, Public Law 105-83, and payments of $2,000,000 for the Borough of Ketchikan to participate in a study of the feasibility and dynamics of manufacturing veneer products in Southeast Alaska and $200,000 for construction of the Pike’s Peak Summit House, as specified in Conference Report 105-825 accompanying the Department of the Interior and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for fiscal year 1999 (as contained in division A, section 101(e) of the Omnibus Consolidated and Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, 1999 (Public Law 105-277)), shall be paid in lump sum and shall be considered direct payments, for the purposes of all applicable law except that these direct grants may not be used for lobbying activities.

    SEC. 2326. Section 617 of the Department of Commerce, Justice, and State, the Judiciary, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1999 (as added by section 101(b) of division A of the Omnibus Consolidated and Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, 1999 (Public Law 105-277)) is amended--

      (1) by striking subsection (a) and inserting in lieu thereof the following:

    ‘(a) None of the funds made available in this Act or any other Act hereafter enacted may be used to issue or renew a fishing permit or authorization for any fishing vessel of the United States greater than 165 feet in registered length, of more than 750 gross registered tons, or that has an engine or engines capable of producing a total of more than 3,000 shaft horsepower as specified in the permit application required under part 648.4(a)(5) of title 50, Code of Federal Regulations, part 648.12 of title 50, Code of Federal Regulations, and the authorization required under part 648.80(d)(2) of title 50, Code of Federal Regulations, to engage in fishing for Atlantic mackerel or herring (or both) under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), unless the regional fishery management council of jurisdiction recommends after October 21, 1998, and the Secretary of Commerce approves, conservation and management measures in accordance with such Act to allow such vessel to engage in fishing for Atlantic mackerel or herring (or both).’; and

      (2) in subsection (b), by striking ‘subsection (a)(1)’ and inserting ‘subsection (a)’.

    SEC. 2327. The Corps of Engineers is directed to reprogram $800,000 of the funds made available to that agency in fiscal year 1999 for the operation of the Pick-Sloan project to perform the preliminary work needed to transfer Federal lands to the tribes and State of South Dakota, and to provide the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe and Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe with funds to begin protecting invaluable Indian cultural sites, under the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, and State of South Dakota Terrestrial Wildlife Habitat Restoration Act.

    SEC. 2328. GLACIER BAY. No funds may be expended by the Secretary of the Interior to implement closures or other restrictions of subsistence or commercial fishing or subsistence gathering in Glacier Bay National Park, except the closure of Dungeness crab fisheries under section 123(b) of the Department of the Interior and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1999 (section 101(e) of division A of Public Law 105-277), until such time as the State of Alaska’s legal claim to ownership and jurisdiction over submerged lands and tidelands in the affected area has been resolved either by a final determination by the judiciary or by a settlement between the parties to the lawsuit.
