Removal of Barriers That Discourage Investments To Increase Military Installation Resilience
Pub. L. 116–92, div. A, title III, § 327, Dec. 20, 2019, 133 Stat. 1311, provided that:
“(a) In General.—The Secretary of Defense shall—
identify and seek to remove barriers that discourage investments to increase military installation
reform policies and programs that unintentionally increased the vulnerability of systems to related extreme weather events; and
develop, and update at least once every four years, an adaptation plan to assess how climate impacts affected the ability of the Department of Defense
to accomplish its mission, and the short-and long- term actions the Department can take to ensure military installation
Incorporation of Changing Environmental Condition Projections in Military Construction Designs and Modifications
Pub. L. 115–232, div. B, title XXVIII, § 2805(c), Aug. 13, 2018, 132 Stat. 2262, as amended by Pub. L. 116–92, div. A, title XVII, § 1731(b)(4), div. B, title XXVII, § 2804(c), Dec. 20, 2019, 133 Stat. 1816, 1882, provided that:
“(1) Fiscal year 2019.—
Not later than 30 days after the date of the enactment of this Act [Aug. 13, 2018
], the Secretary of Defense
shall amend section 3–126.96.36.199 of Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 1-200-01 and UFC 1-200-02 (or any similar successor regulations) to provide that in order to anticipate changing environmental conditions during the design life of existing or planned new facilities and infrastructure, projections from reliable and authorized sources such as the Census Bureau (for population projections), the National Academies of Sciences (for land use change projections and climate projections), the U.S. Geological Survey (for land use change projections), and the U.S. Global Change Research Office and National Climate Assessment (for climate projections) shall be considered and incorporated into military construction
designs and modifications.
“(2) Fiscal year 2020.—
“(A) Amendments required.—Not later than 30 days after the date of the enactment of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 [Dec. 20, 2019], the Secretary of Defense shall amend the Unified Facilities Criteria as follows:
To require that installations of the Department of Defense assess the risks from extreme weather and related effects, and develop plans to address such risks.
“(ii) To require in the development of such Criteria the use of—
land use change projections through the use of land use and land cover modeling by the United States Geological Survey; and
“(II) weather projections—
from the United States Global Change Research Program, including in the National Climate Assessment; or
from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, if such projections are more up-to-date than projections under item (aa).
To require the Secretary of Defense to provide guidance to project designers and master planners on how to use weather projections.
To require the use throughout the Department of the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Climate Change Installation Adaptation and Resilience planning handbook, as amended (or similar publication of the Army Corps of Engineers).
If the Secretary of Defense determines that a projection other than a projection described in subparagraph (A)(ii) is more appropriate for use in amending the Unified Facilities Criteria, the Secretary shall notify the congressional defense committees [Committees on Armed Services and Appropriations of the Senate and the House of Representatives] of such determination, which shall include the rationale underlying such determination and a description of such other projection.”

L. 115–232, set out above, by substituting “Unified Facilities Criteria” for “United Facilities Criteria”, was not executed in light of the amendment by section 2804(c)(2) of Pub. L. 116–92, which substituted “Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 1-200-01 and UFC 1-200-02” for “United Facilities Criteria (UFC) 2–100–01 and UFC 2–100–02”.]
