refined petroleum product would assist directly and significantly in 
reducing the adverse impact of such shortage, the Secretary of Energy 
may draw down and sell refined petroleum product from the Strategic

Administration shall pay any power system dispatcher employed by the 
Administration a rate of basic pay and premium pay based on those 
prevailing for similar occupations in the electric power industry. 
Basic pay and premium pay may not be paid under this section to any 
individual during a calendar year so as to result in a total rate in 
excess of the rate of basic pay for level V of the Executive Schedule 
(section 5316 of such title).
