H.R. 3707 (eh) To authorize funds for the construction of a facility in Taipei, Taiwan suitable for the mission of the American Institute in Taiwan. [Engrossed in House] ...
In the Senate of the United States,
May 2, 2000.
Resolved, That the bill from the House of Representatives (H.R.
3707) entitled ``An Act to authorize funds for the construction of a
facility in Taipei, Taiwan suitable for the mission of the American
Institute in Taiwan.'', do pass with the following
Strike out all after the enacting clause and insert:
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the ``American Institute in Taiwan
Facilities Enhancement Act''.
SEC. 2. FINDINGS.
The Congress finds that--
(1) in the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979 (22 U.S.C. 3301 et
seq.), the Congress established the American Institute in
Taiwan (hereafter in this Act referred to as ``AIT''), a
nonprofit corporation incorporated in the District of Columbia,
to carry out on behalf of the United States Government any and
all programs, transactions, and other relations with Taiwan;
(2) the Congress has recognized AIT for the successful role
it has played in sustaining and enhancing United States
relations with Taiwan;
(3) the Taipei office of AIT is housed in buildings which
were not originally designed for the important functions that
AIT performs, whose location does not provide adequate security
for its employees, and which, because they are almost 50 years
old, have become increasingly expensive to maintain;
(4) the aging state of the AIT office building in Taipei is
neither conducive to the safety and welfare of AIT's American
and local employees nor commensurate with the level of contact
that exists between the United States and Taiwan;
(5) AIT has made a good faith effort to set aside funds for
the construction of a new office building, but these funds will
be insufficient to construct a building that is large and
secure enough to meet AIT's current and future needs; and
(6) because the Congress established AIT and has a strong
interest in United States relations with Taiwan, the Congress
has a special responsibility to ensure that AIT's requirements
for safe and appropriate office quarters are met.
SEC. 3. AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS.
(a) Authorization of Appropriations.--There is authorized to be
appropriated the sum of $75,000,000 to AIT--
(1) for plans for a new facility and, if necessary,
residences or other structures located in close physical
proximity to such facility, in Taipei, Taiwan, for AIT to carry
out its purposes under the Taiwan Relations Act; and
(2) for acquisition by purchase or construction of such
facility, residences, or other structures.
(b) Limitations.--Funds appropriated pursuant to subsection (a) may
only be used if the new facility described in that subsection meets all
requirements applicable to the security of United States diplomatic
facilities, including the requirements in the Omnibus Diplomatic
Security and Anti-Terrorism Act of 1986 (22 U.S.C. 4801 et seq.) and
the Secure Embassy Construction and Counterterrorism Act of 1999 (as
enacted by section 1000(a)(7) of Public Law 106-113; 113 Stat 1501A-
451), except for those requirements which the Director of AIT certifies
to the Committee on International Relations of the House of
Representatives and the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate
are not applicable on account of the special status of AIT. In making
such certification, the Director shall also certify that security
considerations permit the exercise of the waiver of such requirements.
(c) Availability of Funds.--Amounts appropriated pursuant to
subsection (a) are authorized to remain available until expended.
