    of the United States in the project area and lands acquired under
    this section; to sell, exchange, or lease such lands; to dedicate
    portions of such lands for public purposes in keeping with sound
    project development; to acquire in the name of the United States,
    at prices satisfactory to him, such lands or interests in lands,
    within or adjacent to the project area, as he deems appropriate for
    the protection, development, or improvement of the project; and to
    accept donations of real and personal property for the purposes of
    sections 835 and 835a to 835c-5 (FOOTNOTE 1) of this title.  Any
    moneys realized on account of donations for purposes of such
    sections shall be covered into the Treasury as trust funds.
       (FOOTNOTE 1) See References in Text note below.
    (b) Terms of contracts; qualifications of applicants; prohibited
        disposals
      Contracts, exchanges, and leases made under this section shall be
    on terms that, in the Secretary's judgment, are in keeping with

    contracts shall be on a basis that, in the Secretary's judgment,
    provides for the return, in a reasonable period of years, of not
    less than the appraised value of the land and improvements
    thereon.  Qualification of applicants for the purchase of land for
    irrigation farming shall be prescribed as provided in section 433
    of title 43, notwithstanding any other provisions of law.  No farm
    unit shall be sold to, and no contract to sell a farm unit shall be

    of the Secretary, are not suitable for settlement purposes may be
    sold with a preference to resident project landowners as
    supplemental units, subject to the applicable irrigable acreage
    limitations on the delivery of water, but the purchasers thereof
    shall not be entitled to benefits of the Act of August 13, 1953 (67

    applicable irrigable acreage limitations on the delivery of water,
    and prohibiting purchasers thereof from receiving benefits of the
    Act of August 13, 1953, with respect thereto, eliminated provisions
    which required land sale and exchange contracts, in the case of
    lands to be included in farm units, to provide for the application
    of provisions similar to those of the recordable contracts provided
    under section 835a(c) of this title, and each applicant for the
    purchase of land for irrigation farming to agree that he, his heirs
    and assigns will not, except with the Secretary's approval, sell,
    assign, lease, or otherwise dispose of his land during a period
    ending five years from the date of his purchase contract, and
    prohibiting applications for a farm unit from any person who, or a
    member of whose family, then has outstanding another application
    for a farm unit on the project or to whom a farm unit could not at
    the time of application lawfully be sold under sections 835 and
    835a to 835c-5 of this title, substituted provisions prohibiting
    the sale of a farm unit to, and the entering into a contract to
    sell a farm unit with, any person, corporation, or joint-stock
    association which has theretofore purchased or entered into a
    contract to purchase a farm unit from the United States on the
    Columbia Basin project for provisions which prohibited the sale of
    a farm unit to, and the entering into a contract to sell a farm
    unit with, any person, corporation, joint-stock association, or
    family which has theretofore purchased or entered into a contract
    to purchase a farm unit under sections 835 and 835a to 835c-5 of
    this title or which then owns a farm unit within the Columbia Basin
    project, but not precluding a purchase or contract to purchase by a
    person, otherwise eligible, whose farm unit has been or is acquired
    by the United States for exchange purposes or, if he is 18 years of
    age or older, whose family purchased or entered into a contract to
    purchase a farm unit at a time when he was under 18 years of age.
      1957 - Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 85-264 inserted provisions to require
    applicant's agreement not to dispose of his land for 5 years from
    the date of his purchase contract except with approval of
    Secretary, to prohibit receiving application from a person who, or
    a member of whose family, has outstanding another application, or
    to whom a unit could not at the time of application be lawfully
    sold, and to prohibit sale or contracts of sale with those who
    theretofore purchased or contracted to purchase, a unit under

    within the project.

    situated in the town and Grand Coulee areas which was acquired or
    built by the United States for the construction, operation, and
    maintenance of Grand Coulee Dam and its appurtenant works and which
    is not needed for Federal purposes.  Such disposals shall be made
    in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in section 3
    of this Act, but lands to be sold in the Grand Coulee area shall be
    sold at public sale to the highest responsible bidder.
      ''Sec. 3. (Manner of Disposal Priority of Purchasers; Terms of
    Sale). (a) All land authorized to be sold under section 2 of this
    Act which, when offered for sale, is occupied by improvements owned
    by the United States shall be sold with the improvements in place.
      ''(b) Of the property authorized to be sold under section 2 of
    this Act, lands in the town area occupied by dwelling units shall
    be sold in accordance with the following terms and conditions:
      ''(1) First priority to purchase shall be given to the tenant of
    the United States in the town area who occupies the land and
    dwelling unit to be sold.  The land and dwelling unit shall be
    offered at the appraised value as established under section 5 less
    any applicable discounts under this Act. This right of priority
    shall expire unless a deposit of earnest money in an amount to be
    fixed by the Secretary is received by him before the expiration of
    sixty days after the date on which the property has been offered
    for sale, and the right of priority shall be deemed abandoned
    unless within an additional one hundred and eighty days the
    prospective purchaser shall have signed a contract to purchase the
    property.
      ''Any tenant having a priority under (1) who desires to continue
    to rent the property occupied by him rather than to purchase it may
    assign his priority to a person who has entered into a valid
    contract to lease the property back to him.  The Secretary may
    permit such other assignments of priorities under (1) as he finds
    to be fair and equitable.  Assignments under this paragraph shall
    be subject to such general rules and regulations as the Secretary
    may prescribe, including denial, in any instance where the
    Secretary in his judgment finds it proper, to the assignee
    concerned, or his successors, assigns, or legal representatives, of
    any discount in or rebate of the purchase price to which such
    person or persons would otherwise be entitled under this Act.
      ''(2) Second priority to purchase shall apply to property in the
    town area not purchased under (1) and shall be given to persons who
    are tenants of the United States in Federal housing in the town
    area or who would meet the requirements for eligibility to become
    such tenants under the most recent regulations of the Bureau of
    Reclamation for the assignment of persons to Federal housing in the
    town area.  Applicants to purchase shall be placed in order of
    opportunity to choose pursuant to a public drawing, but spouses of
    such applicants shall not be entitled to apply.  Sales shall be at
    the appraised value as established under section 5, less applicable
    discounts under this Act. Selection of dwelling units by successful
    applicants, to be accompanied by a deposit of earnest money fixed
    as under (1), shall be concluded within limits of time established
    by the Secretary, and thereafter the purchase shall be concluded in
    the same manner as provided under (1). A purchase under (1) or (2)
    shall render the purchaser and any spouse of such purchaser
    ineligible thereafter to purchase under either (1) or (2).

    from the general public and shall be sold to the highest
    responsible bidder.

    this Act, land in the town area occupied by privately owned
    improvements shall be offered for sale to the owner of such
    improvements at the appraised value as established under section 5
    less applicable discounts under this Act. This preference right
    shall expire unless a deposit of earnest money in an amount to be
    fixed by the Secretary is received by the Secretary before the
    expiration of sixty days after the date on which the property has
    been offered for sale, and thereafter the purchase shall be
    concluded in the same manner as provided under subsection (b)(1) of
    this section.

    church or hospital improvements) thereon under (1) shall be made
    available for sale for a period of thirty days to those eligible
    for purchase under subsection (f) of this section, and thereafter

    not been purchased by the owners of the improvements under (1) may
    be disposed of by advertising and competitive bids, or by
    negotiated sale or other transfer at such prices and on such other
    terms and conditions as the Secretary shall determine to be fair

    the United States other than dwelling units shall be offered to the
    lessee of the United States in such improvements at the appraised
    value as established under section 5 less applicable discounts
    under this Act: Provided, That where there is more than one lessee
    in a given improvement and the Secretary finds it impractical to
    offer each lessee an interest in the property, the Secretary,

    an order of priority among such lessees for acceptance of the offer
    of sale of such property, which shall be sold at the appraised
    value as established under section 5 less applicable discounts
    under this Act and pursuant to such other terms and conditions as
    the Secretary deems proper.  Any preference or priority right under
    this paragraph shall expire unless a deposit of earnest money in an
    amount to be fixed by the Secretary is received by the Secretary
    before the expiration of sixty days after the date on which the
    property has been offered for sale, and thereafter the purchase
    shall be concluded in the same manner as provided under subsection

    this Act, land in the town area which has not been improved or land
    from which the improvements have been removed shall be sold in
    accordance with the following terms and conditions.

    sale to persons who are tenants of the United States in Federal
    housing in the town area or who would meet the requirements for
    eligibility to become such tenants under the most recent
    regulations of the Bureau of Reclamation for the assignment of
    persons to Federal housing in the town area.  Applicants to
    purchase shall be placed in order of opportunity to choose pursuant
    to a public drawing.  No application shall be accepted from the
    spouse of any applicant or from a person, or the spouse of such
    person, who owns, has owned, or has contracted to buy other
    residential property in the town area.  Sales shall be at the
    appraised value as established under section 5 less applicable
    discounts under this Act, and selection and purchase under this
    priority by successful applicants shall be concluded within limits
    of time to be established by the Secretary. Residential property
    which is not sold under the preceding provisions of this subsection
    shall be open to bids from the general public and shall be sold to
    the highest responsible bidder.
      ''(2) Property which at the time of sale is zoned for other than
    residential use, except such as is disposed of under subsection (f)
    of this section and land with church or hospital improvements
    thereon, shall be open to bids from the general public and shall be
    sold to the highest responsible bidder.
      ''(f) Of the property in the town area authorized to be sold
    under section 2 of this Act, except that which is covered by
    subsections (b), (c)(3), and (e)(1) of this section, land not
    purchased by the holders of a priority or preference under this
    section shall, for thirty days following the period during which
    holders of a priority or preference could purchase the same, be
    offered for sale at the appraised value as established under
    section 5 less applicable discounts under this Act to persons
    leasing property in the town area from the United States for
    business or commercial uses.  The Secretary may, in his discretion,
    permit more than one lot to be included in a single purchase, but
    only if the property to be purchased is compact and contiguous.  If
    two or more applicants to purchase under this subsection desire the
    same property, their order of opportunity to purchase shall be
    determined pursuant to a public drawing.  A purchase under this
    subsection shall render the purchaser and any spouse of such
    purchaser ineligible either to make an additional purchase under
    this subsection or to purchase the business or commercial property
    he is renting from the United States.
      ''(g) Any improvement owned by the United States located on lands
    in the town area subject to being purchased by the holder of a
    priority or preference right hereunder and not purchased, after
    being offered for sale, within one year following the expiration of
    the period within which the priority or preference right can be
    exercised, may be opened to bids from the general public and may be
    sold to the highest responsible bidder.
      ''(h) In all public sales of property under this Act to the
    highest responsible bidder, which shall include all sales of
    property to be sold in the Grand Coulee area, the Secretary shall
    reserve the right to reject all bids; and, in the event all bids
    are less than the appraised value of the property as established
    under section 5 or in the event no bids are received, the property
    shall be available for sale to the first taker from the general
    public at not less than aforesaid appraised value until all such
    property has been sold.
      ''(i)(1) Whenever the Secretary, on presentation of adequate
    evidence by a prospective purchaser or purchasers under subsections
    (b)(1) or (b)(2) of this section, shall determine that financing of
    purchases on reasonable terms cannot be arranged from other
    sources, he is authorized to enter into contracts with such
    purchasers under which the purchaser would not be required to make
    a downpayment of more than 10 per centum of the appraised value of
    the property as established under section 5 less applicable
    discounts under this Act and the remainder of the repayment
    obligation shall be paid on terms as to amount, repayment period,
    installments, and interest rate not more favorable to the
    purchasers than those which would be available were the purchases
    to be financed under mortgages eligible for insurance under
    subsection 223(a) of the National Housing Act, as herein amended
    (section 1715n(a) of Title 12): Provided, That the Secretary may

    authorized by the Federal Housing Commissioner for property of a
    similar character) under subsection 223(a) of the National Housing
    Act, as herein amended (section 1715n(a) of Title 12), at the
    effective date of the aforesaid contracts.

    evidence by a prospective purchaser or purchasers under subsections
    (c)(1), (d)(1), or (f) of this section, shall determine that

    other sources, he is authorized to enter into contracts with such
    purchasers under which the purchaser would not be required to make
    a down payment of more than 10 per centum of the appraised value of
    the property as established under section 5, less applicable
    discounts under this Act. The remainder of the repayment obligation
    shall be paid with such terms as to amount, repayment period,
    installments, and interest rate as the Secretary shall determine to
    be fair and equitable.
      ''(3) The Secretary may assign any installment contract under
    this section at such times and on such terms and conditions as he
    deems appropriate.  Any such assignment made at a discount shall be
    defeasible if within sixty days after receipt of notification of
    such assignment the original obligor of the assigned contract, or
    his successors, assigns, or legal representative, shall cause to be
    received by the Secretary a tender of the amount for which such
    assignment was made, in which event such tender shall be accepted
    as full payment of the contract.

    responsible bidder under this section or property sold to the first
    taker from the general public under subsection (h) of this section

    30, 1957), they shall be entitled to an additional discount in the
    purchase price (or rebate as appropriate) equal to 10 per centum of
    the aforesaid appraised value.

    Act (Aug. 30, 1957) by the Administrator of Housing and Home
    Finance Agency or his designee at the request of the Secretary.
    Thereafter, the Secretary may make such reappraisals as he deems

    made only after representatives of the Coulee Dam community, as
    determined by the Secretary, and of the Columbia River Commission,
    or such corresponding organization as may succeed it, have been
    granted an opportunity to offer advice.  All appraisals and
    reappraisals shall be made on the basis of the properties' fair
    market value in the locality.  In the sale of property to a tenant
    under subsections 3(b)(1) and (3)(d)(1) of this Act, the value of
    structural improvements made at such tenant's own expense shall, to
    the extent the appraiser or appraisers hereunder determine that
    such improvements actually enhance the value of the property, be
    deducted from what would otherwise be the appraised value of the
    property to be sold; and the difference shall be deemed the
    appraised value for the purposes of this Act.

      substantially served by such properties.  Any such transfer to
      the municipality, however, will not be made unless the town area
      or a part thereof is incorporated within four years from the date
      of this Act (Aug. 30, 1957);

    final drawings and specifications have been approved by the
    Secretary and the construction contracts have been entered into,
    the Secretary shall pay monthly to Grand Coulee and to the
    municipality additional amounts equivalent to earnings under their
    contracts as evidenced by construction progress reports certified
    by their contractors and by Grand Coulee and the municipality, but
    not to exceed a total of $90,000 for the former and $27,000 for the
    latter.

    power and energy may be made available directly to the users or
    indirectly through distributing agencies, for a period of ten years
    from the date of this Act (Aug. 30, 1957) and may be at such
    special rates as the Secretary finds to be proper but at not less
    than cost.
      ''Sec. 8. (Taxes on Property Sold Under Contracts Deferring
    Transfer of Title). Property sold under any contract deferring
    transfer of title pending payment of the purchase price upon
    recordation of such contract in the county records shall be subject

    to the assessment and collection of property taxes, and to liens
    for such taxes and to all proceedings for the enforcement thereof,
    in the same manner and to the same extent as privately owned
    property.  The United States does not assume any obligation for the
    amounts so assessed or taxed; and any proceedings to enforce them
    shall be subject to any title then remaining in the United States
    and to any prior lien reserved to the United States for unpaid

    to in this subsection shall be covered into the reclamation fund.
      ''(b) Transfers under this Act of Federal property to non-Federal
    ownership shall not result in any diminution of the reimbursable
    costs of the Columbia Basin project except to the extent that any
    net proceeds from sales of property under this Act are credited to
    said project.
      ''Sec. 10 (Rights Under Leases). Transfers of Federal property
    under this Act shall not impair rights under leases granted by the

-STATUTE-
    (a) Payments in lieu of taxes
      The Secretary may enter into agreements to pay annual sums in
    lieu of taxes to any State or political subdivision thereof with
    respect to any real property situated therein after it is acquired
    pursuant to the authority of sections 835 and 835a to 835c-5
    (FOOTNOTE 1) of this title and before execution by the United
    States of a contract of sale covering it, out of funds derived from
    the leasing of such lands.  The amount so paid for any year upon
    any such property shall not exceed the taxes that would be paid to
    the State or subdivision as the case may be upon such property if
    it were not exempt from taxation thereby.
       (FOOTNOTE 1) See References in Text note below.
    (b) Lands acquired by United States
      Any public lands within the project and any lands or interests in
    lands acquired by the United States under sections 835 and 835a to
    835c-5 (FOOTNOTE 1) of this title, beginning at such date or dates
    and subject to such provisions and limitations as may be fixed or
    provided by regulations made under section 835c-4 of this title,
    shall be (i) subject to the provisions of the laws of the State of
    Washington relating to the organization, government, and regulation
    of irrigation, reclamation, and conservancy districts, and (ii)
    subject to legal assessment or taxation by any such district, and
    to liens for such assessments and taxes and to all proceedings for
    the enforcement thereof, in the same manner and to the same extent
    as privately owned lands of like character.  The United States does
    not assume any obligation for amounts so assessed or taxed; and any
    proceedings to enforce them shall be subject to any title then
    remaining in the United States, to any prior lien reserved to the
    United States for unpaid installments under land sale contracts
    made under sections 835 and 835a to 835c-5 (FOOTNOTE 1) of this
    title, and to any lien for any other charges, accrued or unaccrued,
    under and by virtue of such contracts or any contract between the
    United States and the district in which the land is located.
    (c) Sale of project lands
      In addition to taxation or assessment under subsection (b) of
    this section upon execution by the United States of a contract of
    sale of any lands within the project, the lands under contract may
    be taxed by the State or political subdivision thereof in the same
    manner and to the same extent as privately owned lands of a like
    character.  All taxes legally so assessed may be enforced in the
    same manner and under the same proceeding whereby said taxes are
    enforced against privately owned lands, subject to the limitations
    in favor of the United States that govern the enforcement of
    district assessments or taxes as provided in subsection (b) of this
    section.  If lands under any such contract shall at any time revert
    to the United States before transfer of title under the contract by
    reason of default thereunder, all liens or tax titles resulting
    from taxes levied pursuant to the authority of this subsection upon
    such lands shall be thereupon extinguished; and the levying of any
    such tax by such State or political subdivision shall be deemed to
    be an agreement on its part, in the event of such reversion, to
    execute and record a formal release of such line or tax title.

    purposes above the elevation of one thousand three hundred and ten
    feet above sea level as shown by Bureau of Land Management surveys,
    except in Klaxta town site and except where in the judgment of the
    Secretary of the Interior, special circumstances concerning the

    rights shall be subject only to such reasonable regulations as the
    Secretary may prescribe for the protection and conservation of fish
    and wildlife: Provided, That the exercise of the Indians' rights
    shall not interfere with project operations.  The Secretary shall

    of the two projects will be facilitated by a mutual exchange of the
    electrical power and energy generated at the Bonneville Project and
    the Grand Coulee Dam Project and by marketing the power and energy
    from both projects through a single agency:
      NOW, THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me as
    President of the United States by section 2 of the act of August
    30, 1935, supra, and supplementing my letter of January 29, 1936,
    to the Secretary of the Interior, it is hereby ordered as follows:
      1. The Bonneville Power Administrator is hereby designated, under
    the supervision and direction of the Secretary of Energy, as agent
    for the sale and distribution of electrical power and energy
    generated at the Grand Coulee Dam Project and not required for
    operation of that Project, including its irrigation features.
      2. The Administrator shall construct, operate, and maintain the
    transmission lines and substations and appurtenant structures and
    facilities necessary for marketing the power and energy delivered
    to him from the Grand Coulee Dam Project; except that the Bureau of
    Reclamation may construct, operate, or maintain such transmission
    facilities as the Secretary of the Interior, in his discretion,
    deems necessary or desirable.  The Bureau of Reclamation and the
    Administrator, with the approval of the Secretary of the Interior,
    shall agree upon and schedule the installation of additional
    generators at the Grand Coulee Dam Project.
      3. The Bureau of Reclamation, with the approval of the Secretary
    of the Interior, shall provide the Administrator with a basic
    schedule of the power and energy to be available to him from the
    Grand Coulee Dam Project. The Bureau, with the Secretary's
    approval, may revise the schedule from time to time, except that no
    revision decreasing the amount of power and energy available under
    an existing schedule shall be effective unless agreed to by the
    Administrator. The Bureau will make power and energy from the Grand
    Coulee Dam Project available to the Administrator in accordance
    with these schedules.
      4. The Administrator shall market the power and energy delivered
    to him from the Grand Coulee Dam Project at rates to be fixed by
    the Secretary of Energy consistently with all applicable provisions
    of law and allocations of cost determined as provided thereunder.
    From time to time the Secretary of Energy, consistently with all
    applicable provisions of law and allocations of cost made pursuant
    thereto, shall determine the basis on which the Administrator and
    the Bureau shall compute the returns to be made to the Bureau for
    power and energy delivered to the Administrator from the Grand
    Coulee Dam Project pursuant to this order.  All receipts collected
    by the Administrator from transmission and sale of power and energy
    shall be deposited with the Treasurer of the United States for
    credit to a special account, subject to allocation by the Secretary
    of Energy in accordance with the computations above provided for.
    Upon certification by the Secretary of Energy, the amounts of
    receipts properly allocable to the Bonneville Project shall be
    covered into the Treasury of the United States to the credit of
    miscellaneous receipts subject to the provisions of section 2 of
    the act of August 20, 1937, 50 Stat. 731, 732 (16 U.S.C. 832a). The
    amounts certified by the Secretary of Energy as being allocable to
    the Grand Coulee Dam Project shall be covered into the Treasury for
    credit to the Reclamation Fund to the extent authorized by law.
      5. In aid of this delegation of authority to the Secretary of the
    Interior and the Secretary of Energy, the Commissioner of the
    Bureau of Reclamation and the Bonneville Power Administrator shall,
    subject to the approval of the Secretary of the Interior and the
    Secretary of Energy, and the terms of this order, enter into any
    and all agreements that are necessary for the interconnection of
    the Bonneville Project and the Grand Coulee Dam Project and to

-STATUTE-
      It is declared to be the policy of the Congress that reclamation
    projects hereafter authorized in the Pacific Northwest to receive
    financial assistance from the Federal Columbia River power system
    shall receive such assistance only from the net revenues of that
    system as provided in this section, and that their construction
    shall be so scheduled that such assistance, together with similar
    assistance for previously authorized reclamation projects
    (including projects not now receiving such assistance for which the
    Congress may hereafter authorize financial assistance) will not
    cause increases in the rates and charges of the Bonneville Power
    Administration. It is further declared to be the policy of the
    Congress that the total assistance to all irrigation projects, both
    existing and future, in the Pacific Northwest shall not average
    more than $30,000,000 annually in any period of twenty consecutive
    years.  Any analyses and studies authorized by the Congress for
    reclamation projects in the Pacific Northwest shall be prepared in
