      (1) The Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2004 (Public Law 108-87), the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2005 (Public Law 108-287), and the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief, 2005 (Public Law 109-13) each contain a sense of the Senate provision urging the President to provide in the annual budget requests of the President for a fiscal year under section 1105(a) of title 31, United States Code, an estimate of the cost of ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan in such fiscal year.

      (2) The budget for fiscal year 2006 submitted to Congress by the President on February 7, 2005, requests no funds for fiscal year 2006 for ongoing military operations in Iraq or Afghanistan.

      (3) According to the Congressional Research Service, there exists historical precedent for including the cost of ongoing military operations in the annual budget requests of the President following initial funding for such operations by emergency or supplemental appropriations Acts, including--

        (A) funds for Operation Noble Eagle, beginning in the budget request of President George W. Bush for fiscal year 2005;

        (B) funds for operations in Kosovo, beginning in the budget request of President George W. Bush for fiscal year 2001;

      (5) The President has yet to submit such an amendment.

      (6) In February 2005, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that fiscal year 2006 cost of ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan could total $85,000,000,000.

    (b) SENSE OF THE SENATE- It is the sense of the Senate that--

      (1) any request for funds for a fiscal year after fiscal year 2006 for an ongoing military operation overseas, including operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, should be included in the annual budget of the President for such fiscal year as submitted to Congress under section 1105(a) of title 31, United States Code;

      (2) the President should submit a budget request for fiscal year 2006 setting forth estimates for ongoing military operations overseas during such fiscal year; and

      (3) any funds provided for a fiscal year for ongoing military operations overseas should be provided in appropriations Acts for such fiscal year through appropriations to specific accounts set forth in such appropriations Acts.

      (2) IN GENERAL-

        (A) SUPPORT FOR YOUTH ORGANIZATIONS-

          (i) SUPPORT- No Federal law (including any rule, regulation, directive, instruction, or order) shall be construed to limit any Federal agency from providing any form of support for a youth organization (including the Boy Scouts of America or any group officially affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America) that would result in that Federal agency providing less support to that youth organization (or any similar organization chartered under the chapter of title 36, United States Code, relating to that youth organization) than was provided during the preceding fiscal year. This clause shall be subject to the availability of appropriations.

          (ii) YOUTH ORGANIZATIONS THAT CEASE TO EXIST- Clause (i) shall not apply to any youth organization that ceases to exist.

          (iii) WAIVERS- The head of a Federal agency may waive the application of clause (i) to any youth organization with respect to each conviction or investigation described under subclause (I) or (II) for a period of not more than 2 fiscal years if--

            (I) any senior officer (including any member of the board of directors) of the youth organization is convicted of a criminal offense relating to the official duties of that officer or the youth organization is convicted of a criminal offense; or

          (ii) hosting any official event of such organization;

          (iii) loaning equipment; and

          (iv) providing personnel services and logistical support.

    (c) Support for Scout Jamborees-

      (1) FINDINGS- Congress makes the following findings:

        (A) Section 8 of article I of the Constitution of the United States commits exclusively to Congress the powers to raise and support armies, provide and maintain a Navy, and make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces.

        (B) Under those powers conferred by section 8 of article I of the Constitution of the United States to provide, support, and maintain the Armed Forces, it lies within the discretion of Congress to provide opportunities to train the Armed Forces.

        (C) The primary purpose of the Armed Forces is to defend our national security and prepare for combat should the need arise.

        (D) One of the most critical elements in defending the Nation and preparing for combat is training in conditions that simulate the preparation, logistics, and leadership required for defense and combat.

        (E) Support for youth organization events simulates the preparation, logistics, and leadership required for defending our national security and preparing for combat.

        (F) For example, Boy Scouts of America's National Scout Jamboree is a unique training event for the Armed Forces, as it requires the construction, maintenance, and disassembly of a `tent city' capable of supporting tens of thousands of people for a week or longer. Camporees at the United States Military Academy for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts provide similar training opportunities on a smaller scale.

      (2) SUPPORT- Section 2554 of title 10, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following:

    `(i)(1) The Secretary of Defense shall provide at least the same level of support under this section for a national or world Boy Scout Jamboree as was provided under this section for the preceding national or world Boy Scout Jamboree.

    `(2) The Secretary of Defense may waive paragraph (1), if the Secretary--

      `(A) determines that providing the support subject to paragraph (1) would be detrimental to the national security of the United States; and

      `(B) reports such a determination to the Congress in a timely manner, and before such support is not provided.'.

    (d) Equal Access for Youth Organizations- Section 109 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5309) is amended--

      (1) in the first sentence of subsection (b) by inserting `or (e)' after `subsection (a)'; and

      (2) by adding at the end the following:

    `(e) Equal Access-

      `(1) DEFINITION- In this subsection, the term `youth organization' means any organization described under part B of subtitle II of title 36, United States Code, that is intended to serve individuals under the age of 21 years.

      `(2) IN GENERAL- No State or unit of general local government that has a designated open forum, limited public forum, or nonpublic forum and that is a recipient of assistance under this chapter shall deny equal access or a fair opportunity to meet to, or discriminate against, any youth organization, including the Boy Scouts of America or any group officially affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America, that wishes to conduct a meeting or otherwise participate in that designated open forum, limited public forum, or nonpublic forum.'.

Such regulations shall apply uniformly to the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps, and, to the maximum extent feasible, to the Coast Guard, and shall apply uniformly to the active and reserve components.

    (b) AUTHORITY- A member of the Armed Forces described in subsection (c) may accept gifts as provided in the regulations authorized in subsection (a), notwithstanding section 7353 of title 5, United States Code.

    (c) COVERED MEMBERS- A member of the Armed Forces is described in this subsection in the case of a member who is on active duty and who on or after September 11, 2001, and while on active duty, incurred an injury or illness--

      (2) in an operation or area designated as a combat operation or a combat zone, respectively, by the Secretary of Defense in accordance with the regulations prescribed under subsection (a).

    (d) DEADLINE FOR REGULATIONS- Regulations under subsection (a) shall be prescribed not later than 90 days after the date of the enactment of this Act.

    (e) RETROACTIVE APPLICABILITY OF REGULATIONS- Regulations under subsection (a) shall, to the extent provided in such regulations, also apply to the acceptance of gifts during the period beginning on September 11, 2001, and ending on the date on which such regulations go into effect.

    (a) FINDINGS- Congress finds the following:

      (1) Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita have had a devastating and unprecedented impact on students who attended schools in the disaster areas.

      (2) Due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita, a significant number of students have enrolled in schools outside of the area in which they resided, including a significant number of students who enrolled in non-public schools because their parents chose to enroll them in such schools.

      (3) 372,000 students were displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Approximately 700 schools have been damaged or destroyed. Nine States each have more than 1,000 of such displaced students enrolled in their schools. In Texas alone, over 45,000 displaced students have enrolled in schools.

      (4) In response to these extraordinary conditions, this subtitle creates a one-time only emergency grant for the 2005-2006 school year tailored to the needs and particular circumstances of students displaced by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita.

      (5) The level and type of assistance provided under this subtitle, both for students attending public schools and students attending non-public schools, is made available solely because of the unprecedented nature of the crisis, the massive dislocation of students, and the short duration of the services or assistance.

      (2) to assist school administrators and personnel of such agencies or non-public schools with expenses related to the restart of operations in, the re-opening of, and the re-enrollment of students in, elementary schools and secondary schools in such areas.

    (b) Payments Authorized- From amounts appropriated to carry out this subtitle, the Secretary of Education is authorized to make payments, on such basis as the Secretary determines appropriate, taking into consideration the number of students who were enrolled, during the 2004-2005 school year, in elementary schools and secondary schools that were closed on September 12, 2005, as a result of Hurricane Katrina or on October 7, 2005, as a result of Hurricane Rita, to State educational agencies in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas to enable such agencies to provide services or assistance to local educational agencies or non-public schools serving an area in which a major disaster has been declared in accordance with section 401 of the Robert T.

    `(b) Declaration by Secretary-

      `(1) AUTHORITY TO ISSUE DECLARATION- Subject to paragraph (2), if the Secretary makes a determination that a disease or other health condition or other threat to health constitutes a public health emergency, or that there is a credible risk that the disease, condition, or threat may in the future constitute such an emergency, the Secretary may make a declaration, through publication in the Federal Register, recommending, under conditions as the Secretary may specify, the manufacture, testing, development, distribution, administration, or use of one or more covered countermeasures, and stating that subsection (a) is in effect with respect to the activities so recommended.

      `(2) CONTENTS- In issuing a declaration under paragraph (1), the Secretary shall identify, for each covered countermeasure specified in the declaration--

          `(i) a reasonable period for the manufacturer to arrange for disposition of the covered countermeasure, including the return of such product to the manufacturer; and

          `(ii) a reasonable period for covered persons to take such other actions as may be appropriate to limit administration or use of the covered countermeasure.

        `(C) ADDITIONAL PERIOD FOR CERTAIN STRATEGIC NATIONAL STOCKPILE COUNTERMEASURES- With respect to a covered countermeasure that is in the stockpile under section 319F-2, if such countermeasure was the subject of a declaration under paragraph (1) at the time that it was obtained for the stockpile, the effective period of such declaration shall include a period when the countermeasure is administered or used pursuant to a distribution or release from the stockpile.

        `(A) is different from, or is in conflict with, any requirement applicable under this section; and

        `(B) relates to the design, development, clinical testing or investigation, formulation, manufacture, distribution, sale, donation, purchase, marketing, promotion, packaging, labeling, licensing, use, any other aspect of safety or efficacy, or the prescribing, dispensing, or administration by qualified persons of the covered countermeasure, or to any matter included in a requirement applicable to the covered countermeasure under this section or any other provision of this Act, or under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

          `(ii) knowingly without legal or factual justification; and

      `(4) DEFENSE FOR ACTS OR OMISSIONS TAKEN PURSUANT TO SECRETARY'S DECLARATION- Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a program planner or qualified person shall not have engaged in `willful misconduct' as a matter of law where such program planner or qualified person acted consistent with applicable directions, guidelines, or recommendations by the Secretary regarding the administration or use of a covered countermeasure that is specified in the declaration under subsection (b), provided either the Secretary, or a State or local health authority, was provided with notice of information regarding serious physical injury or death from the administration or use of a covered countermeasure that is material to the plaintiff's alleged loss within 7 days of the actual discovery of such information by such program planner or qualified person.

      `(5) EXCLUSION FOR REGULATED ACTIVITY OF MANUFACTURER OR DISTRIBUTOR-

        `(A) IN GENERAL- If an act or omission by a manufacturer or distributor with respect to a covered countermeasure, which act or omission is alleged under subsection (e)(3)(A) to constitute willful misconduct, is subject to regulation by this Act or by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, such act or omission shall not constitute `willful misconduct' for purposes of subsection (d) if--

          `(i) neither the Secretary nor the Attorney General has initiated an enforcement action with respect to such act or omission; or

          `(ii) such an enforcement action has been initiated and the action has been terminated or finally resolved without a covered remedy.

          `(ii) MANDATORY RECALLS- A mandatory recall called for in the declaration is not a Food and Drug Administration enforcement action.

      `(1) IN GENERAL- Subject to subsection (f), the sole exception to the immunity from suit and liability of covered persons set forth in subsection (a) shall be for an exclusive Federal cause of action against a covered person for death or serious physical injury proximately caused by willful misconduct, as defined pursuant to subsection (c), by such covered person. For purposes of section 2679(b)(2)(B) of title 28, United States Code, such a cause of action is not an action brought for violation of a statute of the United States under which an action against an individual is otherwise authorized.

        `(B) facts supporting the allegation that such alleged willful misconduct proximately caused the injury claimed; and

        `(C) facts supporting the allegation that the person on whose behalf the complaint was filed suffered death or serious physical injury.

      `(4) VERIFICATION, CERTIFICATION, AND MEDICAL RECORDS-

        `(A) IN GENERAL- In an action under subsection (d), the plaintiff shall verify the complaint in the manner stated in subparagraph (B) and shall file with the complaint the materials described in subparagraph (C).

          `(ii) certified medical records documenting such injury or death and such proximate causal connection.

      `(5) THREE-JUDGE COURT- Any action under subsection (d) shall be assigned initially to a panel of three judges. Such panel shall have jurisdiction over such action for purposes of considering motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, and matters related thereto. If such panel has denied such motions, or if the time for filing such motions has expired, such panel shall refer the action to the chief judge for assignment for further proceedings, including any trial. Section 1253 of title 28, United States Code, and paragraph (3) of subsection (b) of section 2284 of title 28, United States Code, shall not apply to actions under subsection (d).

      `(6) CIVIL DISCOVERY-

        `(A) TIMING- In an action under subsection (d), no discovery shall be allowed--

          `(i) before each covered person sued has had a reasonable opportunity to file a motion to dismiss;

          `(iii) in the event a covered person files an interlocutory appeal from the denial of such a motion, before the court of appeals has ruled on such appeal.

        `(B) STANDARD- Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the court in an action under subsection (d) shall permit discovery only with respect to matters directly related to material issues contested in such action, and the court shall compel a response to a discovery request (including a request for admission, an interrogatory, a request for production of documents, or any other form of discovery request) under Rule 37, Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, only if the court finds that the requesting party needs the information sought to prove or defend as to a material issue contested in such action and that the likely benefits of a response to such request equal or exceed the burden or cost for the responding party of providing such response.

      `(7) REDUCTION IN AWARD OF DAMAGES FOR COLLATERAL SOURCE BENEFITS-

        `(A) IN GENERAL- In an action under subsection (d), the amount of an award of damages that would otherwise be made to a plaintiff shall be reduced by the amount of collateral source benefits to such plaintiff.

        `(B) PROVIDER OF COLLATERAL SOURCE BENEFITS NOT TO HAVE LIEN OR SUBROGATION- No provider of collateral source benefits shall recover any amount against the plaintiff or receive any lien or credit against the plaintiff's recovery or be equitably or legally subrogated to the right of the plaintiff in an action under subsection (d).

        `(C) COLLATERAL SOURCE BENEFIT DEFINED- For purposes of this paragraph, the term `collateral source benefit' means any amount paid or to be paid in the future to or on behalf of the plaintiff, or any service, product, or other benefit provided or to be provided in the future to or on behalf of the plaintiff, as a result of the injury or wrongful death, pursuant to--

          `(i) any State or Federal health, sickness, income-disability, accident, or workers' compensation law;

      `(8) NONECONOMIC DAMAGES- In an action under subsection (d), any noneconomic damages may be awarded only in an amount directly proportional to the percentage of responsibility of a defendant for the harm to the plaintiff.

Such sanction shall be sufficient to deter repetition of such conduct or comparable conduct by others similarly situated, and to compensate the party or parties injured by such conduct.

      `(10) INTERLOCUTORY APPEAL- The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit shall have jurisdiction of an interlocutory appeal by a covered person taken within 30 days of an order denying a motion to dismiss or a motion for summary judgment based on an assertion of the immunity from suit conferred by subsection (a) or based on an assertion of the exclusion under subsection (c)(5).

    `(f) Actions by and Against the United States- Nothing in this section shall be construed to abrogate or limit any right, remedy, or authority that the United States or any agency thereof may possess under any other provision of law or to waive sovereign immunity or to abrogate or limit any defense or protection available to the United States or its agencies, instrumentalities, officers, or employees under any other law, including any provision of chapter 171 of title 28, United States Code (relating to tort claims procedure).
