                        critical for interests of the United States, 
                        based on the possible impact of the project 
                        that is the subject of the feasibility study on 
                        public health and safety, the national economy,

        water resources development projects that have been authorized 
        but are no longer viable due to--
                    (A) a lack of local support;
                    (B) a lack of available Federal or non-Federal

        Congress to deauthorize feasibility studies for water resources 
        development projects that are no longer viable; and

        viable.
    (b) Interim Deauthorization List.--
            (1) In general.--The Secretary shall develop an interim 
        deauthorization list that identifies each feasibility study for 
        a water resources development project, or a separable element

        study'')--
                    (A) that has been authorized as of the date of 
                enactment of this Act; and

                    (B) publish the revised interim deauthorization 
                list in the Federal Register.
    (c) Final Deauthorization List.--
            (1) In general.--The Secretary shall develop a final 
        deauthorization list of feasibility studies from the revised

                    (A) Proposed final list.--The Secretary shall 
                prepare a proposed final deauthorization list of 
                feasibility studies that have, in the aggregate, an 
                estimated Federal cost to complete that is at least 
                $7,500,000,000.
                    (B) Determination of federal cost to complete.--For 
                purposes of subparagraph (A), the Federal cost to

                authorized by section 902 of the Water Resources 
                Development Act of 1986 (33 U.S.C. 2280), as applied to 
                the most recent study schedule and cost estimate.
            (3) Identification of studies.--
                    (A) Sequencing of studies.--
                            (i) In general.--Except as provided in

                        feasibility studies for inclusion on the 
                        proposed final deauthorization list according 
                        to the order in which the feasibility studies 
                        were authorized, beginning with the earliest 
                        authorized feasibility study and ending with 
                        the latest feasibility study necessary to meet 
                        the aggregate amount under paragraph (2)(A).

                        may identify feasibility studies in an order 
                        other than that established by clause (i) if 
                        the Secretary determines, on a case-by-case 
                        basis, that a feasibility study is critical for 
                        interests of the United States, based on the 
                        possible impact of the project that is the 
                        subject of the feasibility study on public 
                        health and safety, the national economy, or the 
                        environment.

                        the interim deauthorization list developed 
                        under subsection (b) that is not included on 
                        the proposed final deauthorization list; and
                            (ii) describes the reasons why the

                        proposed final list.

                appendix to the final deauthorization list in a report 
                to the Committee on Environment and Public Works of the

        the end of that period.
            (2) Non-federal contributions.--
                    (A) In general.--A feasibility study identified in 
                the final deauthorization list under subsection (c) 
                shall not be deauthorized under this subsection if, 
                before the expiration of the 180-day period referred to 
                in paragraph (1), the non-Federal interest for the 
                feasibility study provides sufficient funds to complete 
                the feasibility study.
                    (B) Treatment of studies.--Notwithstanding 
                subparagraph (A), each feasibility study identified in
