of a local educational agency that has denied a request for

recruiting access or (if the educational agency declines a request

for the meeting) after the end of such 120-day period, the

Secretary of Defense determines that the agency continues to deny

recruiting access, the Secretary shall transmit to the chief

executive of the State in which the agency is located a

notification of the denial of recruiting access and a request for

assistance in obtaining that access. The notification shall be

reduce attrition among recruits.

''(b) Specific Reforms. - As part of the reforms in military

recruiting systems to be undertaken under subsection (a), the

Secretary shall take the following steps:

''(1) Improve the system of pre-enlistment waivers and

separation codes used for recruits by (A) revising and updating

those waivers and codes to allow more accurate and useful data

collection about those separations, and (B) prescribing

regulations to ensure that those waivers and codes are

interpreted in a uniform manner by the military services.

''(2) Develop a reliable database for (A) analyzing (at both

the Department of Defense and service-level) data on reasons for

attrition of new recruits, and (B) undertaking Department of

Defense or service-specific measures (or both) to control and

manage such attrition.

''(3) Require that the Secretary of each military department

(A) adopt or strengthen incentives for recruiters to thoroughly

prescreen potential candidates for recruitment, and (B) link

incentives for recruiters, in part, to the ability of a recruiter

to screen out unqualified candidates before enlistment.

''(4) Require that the Secretary of each military department

include as a measurement of recruiter performance the percentage

of persons enlisted by a recruiter who complete initial combat

training or basic training.

''(5) Assess trends in the number and use of waivers over the

1991-1997 period that were issued to permit applicants to enlist

with medical or other conditions that would otherwise be

disqualifying.

''(6) Require the Secretary of each military department to

implement policies and procedures (A) to ensure the prompt

separation of recruits who are unable to successfully complete

basic training, and (B) to remove those recruits from the

training environment while separation proceedings are pending.

''(c) Report. - Not later than March 31, 1998, the Secretary

shall submit to Congress a report of the trends assessed under

medical providers, and (B) sign a release allowing the Secretary

to request and obtain medical records of the applicant.

''(2) Require that the forms and procedures for medical

prescreening of applicants that are used by recruiters and by

Military Entrance Processing Commands be revised so as to ensure

that medical questions are specific, unambiguous, and tied

directly to the types of medical separations most common for

recruits during basic training and follow-on training.

''(3) Add medical screening tests to the examinations of

recruits carried out by Military Entrance Processing Stations,

provide more thorough medical examinations to selected groups of

applicants, or both, to the extent that the Secretary determines

that to do so could be cost effective in reducing attrition at

basic training.

''(4) Provide for an annual quality control assessment of the

effectiveness of the Military Entrance Processing Commands in

identifying medical conditions in recruits that existed before

enlistment in the Armed Forces, each such assessment to be

performed by an agency or contractor other than the Military

fitness activities before reporting to basic training.

participate in physical fitness programs, as well as for those

recruits who improve their level of fitness while in the Delayed

Entry Program, which may include access to Department of Defense

military fitness facilities, and access to military medical

facilities in the case of a recruit who is injured while

participating in physical activities with recruiters or other

military personnel.

physical training programs for new recruits in the Delayed Entry

Program.''

in the Naval Reserve, for any reason other than his appointment as

a commissioned officer of a regular or reserve component of an

armed force or because of a physical disability, he resumes his

enlisted status and shall complete the period of service for which

he was enlisted or for which he has an obligation, unless he is
