This bill prohibits making funds available for activities in Afghanistan after one year following enactment of this bill. Such prohibition shall not apply to: (1) operations of the U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan, or (2) intelligence gathering activities.

Such prohibition may be waived on a case-by-case basis if: (1) the President submits to Congress a certification that the availability of funds for such activities is in U.S. national interests; and (2) Congress, within 30 days after receipt of such certification, enacts a joint resolution authorizing the availability of funds for such activities.
