            Strike out all after the enacting clause and insert:


    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina first became a 
        member of the Committee on Armed Services of the United States 
        Senate on January 19, 1959. His continuous service on that 
        committee covers more than 75 percent of the period of the 
        existence of the committee, which was established immediately 
        after World War II, and more than 20 percent of the period of 
        the existence of military and naval affairs committees of 
        Congress, the original bodies of which were formed in 1816.
            (2) Senator Thurmond came to Congress and the committee as 
        a distinguished veteran of service, including combat service, 
        in the Armed Forces of the United States.
            (3) Senator Thurmond was commissioned as a reserve second 
        lieutenant of infantry in 1924. He served with great 
        distinction with the First Army in the European Theater of 
        Operations during World War II, landing in Normandy in a glider 
        with the 82nd Airborne Division on D-Day. He was transferred to 
        the Pacific Theater of Operations at the end of the war in 
        Europe and was serving in the Philippines when Japan 
            (4) Having reverted to Reserve status at the end of World 
        War II, Senator Thurmond was promoted to brigadier general in 
        the United States Army Reserve in 1954. He served as President 
        of the Reserve Officers Association beginning that same year 
        and ending in 1955. Senator Thurmond was promoted to major 
        general in the United States Army Reserve in 1959. He 
        transferred to the Retired Reserve on January 1, 1965, after 36 
        years of commissioned service.
            (5) The distinguished character of Senator Thurmond's 
        military service has been recognized by awards of numerous 
        decorations that include the Legion of Merit, the Bronze Star 
        medal with ``V'' device, the Army Commendation Medal, the 
        Belgian Cross of the Order of the Crown, and the French Croix 
        de Guerre.
            (6) Senator Thurmond has served as Chairman of the 
        Committee on Armed Services of the Senate since 1995 and as the 
        ranking minority member of the committee from 1993 to 1995. 
        Senator Thurmond concludes his service as Chairman at the end 
        of the One Hundred Fifth Congress, but is to continue to serve 
        the committee as a member in successive Congresses.
            (7) This Act is the fortieth annual authorization bill for 
        the Department of Defense for which Senator Thurmond has taken 
        a major responsibility as a member of the Committee on Armed 
        Services of the Senate.
            (8) Senator Thurmond, as officer and legislator, has made 
        matchless contributions to the national security of the United 
        States that, in duration and in quality, are unique.
            (9) It is altogether fitting and proper that this Act, the 
        last annual authorization Act for the national defense that 
        Senator Thurmond manages in and for the United States Senate as 
        Chairman of the Committee on Armed Services of the Senate, be 
        named in his honor.
    (b) Short Title.--This Act shall be cited as the ``Strom Thurmond 
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1999''.


    (a) Divisions.--This Act is organized into three divisions as 
            (1) Division A--Department of Defense Authorizations.
            (2) Division B--Military Construction Authorizations.
            (3) Division C--Department of Energy National Security 
        Authorizations and Other Authorizations.
