SEC. 1035. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON NUCLEAR WEAPONS MANAGEMENT.[edit]

(a) Findings- Congress makes the following findings:
(1) The unauthorized transfer of nuclear weapons from Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, to Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana, in August 2007 was an extraordinary breach of the command and control and security of nuclear weapons.
(2) The reviews conducted following that unauthorized transfer found that the ability of the Department of Defense to provide oversight of nuclear weapons matters had degenerated and that senior level attention to nuclear weapons management is minimal at best.
(3) The lack of attention to nuclear weapons and related equipment by the Department of Defense was demonstrated again when it was discovered in March 2008 that classified equipment from Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles was inadvertently shipped to Taiwan in 2006.
(4) The Department of Defense has insufficient capability and staffing in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy to provide the necessary oversight of the nuclear weapons functions of the Department.
(5) The key senior position responsible for nuclear weapons matters in the Department of Defense, the Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Nuclear and Chemical and Biological Defense Programs, a position filled by appointment by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, was vacant for more than 18 months before being filled in July 2008.
(6) The inability to provide consistent senior level emphasis on nuclear weapons policy has contributed to an erosion in the level of attention paid to nuclear weapons matters across the Department of Defense.
(b) Sense of Congress- It is the sense of Congress that--
(1) the United States should maintain clear and unambiguous command and control of its nuclear weapons;
(2) the safety and security of nuclear weapons and related equipment should be a high priority as long as the United States maintains a stockpile of nuclear weapons;
(3) these objectives will be more successfully attained if greater attention is paid to nuclear weapons matters within the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, and the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics;
(4) the Secretary of Defense should consider establishing and filling a senior position, at the level of Assistant Secretary of Defense or Deputy Under Secretary of Defense, within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy to hold primary responsibility for the strategic and nuclear weapons policy of the Department of Defense; and
(5) the Secretary of Defense should clarify the lines of responsibility and accountability for nuclear weapons matters within the Office of the Secretary of Defense to place greater emphasis on strategic and nuclear weapons policy and management.

SEC. 1036. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON JOINT DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE-FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE ON CONFLICT AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION.[edit]

(a) Findings- Congress makes the following findings:
(1) Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) of the Department of Defense, like the Predator and the Global Hawk, have become a critical component of military operations. Unmanned aerial systems are indispensable in the conflict against terrorism and the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq.
(2) Unmanned aerial systems of the Department of Defense must operate in the National Airspace System (NAS) for training, operational support to the combatant commands, and support to domestic authorities in emergencies and national disasters.
(3) The Department of Defense has been lax in developing certifications of airworthiness for unmanned aerial systems, qualifications for operators of unmanned aerial systems, databases on safety matters relating to unmanned aerial systems, and standards, technology, and procedures that are necessary for routine access of unmanned aerial systems to the National Airspace System.
(4) As recognized in a Memorandum of Agreement for Operation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems in the National Airspace System signed by the Deputy Secretary of Defense and the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration in September 2007, it is vital for the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration to collaborate closely to achieve progress in gaining access for unmanned aerial systems to the National Airspace System to support military requirements.
(5) The Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration have jointly and separately taken significant actions to improve the access of unmanned aerial systems of the Department of Defense to the National Airspace System, but overall, the pace of progress in access of such systems to the National Airspace System has been insufficient and poses a threat to national security.
(6) Techniques and procedures can be rapidly acquired or developed to temporarily permit safe operations of unmanned aerial systems in the National Airspace System until permanent safe operations of such systems in the National Airspace System can be achieved.
(7) Identifying, developing, approving, implementing, and monitoring the adequacy of these techniques and procedures may require the establishment of a joint Department of Defense-Federal Aviation Administration executive committee reporting to the highest levels of the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration on matters relating to the access of unmanned aerial systems of the Department of Defense to the National Airspace System.
(8) Joint management attention at the highest levels of the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration may also be required on other important issues, such as type ratings for aerial refueling aircraft.
(b) Sense of Congress- It is the sense of Congress that the Secretary of Defense should seek an agreement with the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration to jointly establish within the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration a joint Department of Defense-Federal Aviation Administration executive committee on conflict and dispute resolution which would--
(1) act as a focal point for the resolution of disputes on matters of policy and procedures between the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration with respect to--
(A) airspace, aircraft certifications, and aircrew training; and
(B) other issues brought before the joint executive committee by the Department of Defense or the Department of Transportation;
(2) identify solutions to the range of technical, procedural, and policy concerns arising in the disputes described in paragraph (1); and
(3) identify solutions to the range of technical, procedural, and policy concerns arising in the integration of Department of Defense unmanned aerial systems into the National Airspace System in order to achieve the increasing, and ultimately routine, access of such systems into the National Airspace System.

SEC. 1037. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON SALE OF NEW OUTSIZE CARGO, STRATEGIC AIRLIFT AIRCRAFT FOR CIVILIAN USE.[edit]

(a) Findings- Congress makes the following findings:
(1) The 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review and the 2005 Mobility Capability Study determined that the United States Transportation Command requires a force of 292 to 383 organic strategic airlift aircraft, augmented by procurement of airlift service from commercial air carriers participating in the Civil Reserve Air Fleet, to meet the demands of the National Military Strategy. Congress has authorized and appropriated funds for 316 strategic airlift aircraft.
(2) The commander of the United States Transportation Command has testified to Congress that it is essential to safeguard the capabilities and capacity of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet to meet wartime surge demands in connection with major combat operations and that procurement by the Air Force of excess organic strategic airlift aircraft could be harmful to the health of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet.
(3) The C-17 aircraft is used extensively by the Air Mobility Command in the Global War on Terror. Production of the C-17 aircraft is scheduled to cease in August, 2010.
(4) The Federal Aviation Administration has informed Congress that no fewer than six commercial operators have expressed interest in operating a commercial variant of the C-17 aircraft. Commercial sale of the new C-17 aircraft would require that the Department of Defense determine that it is in the national interest for the Federal Aviation Administration to proceed with the issuance of a type certificate for C-17 aircraft in accordance with section 21.27 of title 14, Code of Federal Regulations.
(5) New C-17 aircraft sold for commercial use could be made available to the Civil Reserve Air Fleet, thus strengthening the capabilities and capacity of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet.
(b) Sense of Congress- It is the sense of Congress that the Secretary of Defense, in consultation with the Secretary of Transportation, should--
(1) review the benefits and feasibility of pursuing a new production commercial cargo capability with new C-17 commercial variant aircraft and determine whether such capability is in the national interest; and
(2) if the Secretary of Defense determines that such a capability is in the national interest, take appropriate actions to coordinate with the Federal Aviation Administration to achieve the type certification for a commercial variant of the C-17 required by section 21.27 of title 14, Code of Federal Regulations.
