 To require the Secretary of the Interior to issue long-term leases on 
 Federal lands under the administrative jurisdiction of the Bureau of 
 Land Management to companies that relocate production facilities from 
  the People's Republic of China to the United States, and for other 
                               purposes.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. LONG-TERM LEASES FOR RELOCATION OF PRODUCTION FACILITIES 
              FROM THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA.

    (a) Leases Authorized.--
            (1) In general.--The Secretary of the Interior shall issue 
        long-term leases on Federal lands under the administrative 
        jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management and deemed 
        suitable for this purpose to companies that relocate production 
        facilities from the People's Republic of China to the United 
        States.
            (2) Certification required.--The Secretary of the Interior 
        may only enter into a lease under this section after the 
        Secretary of Commerce has certified that the production 
        facility to be located on the leased land will replace a 
        production facility of the same size and type located in the 
        People's Republic of China.
    (b) Terms and Conditions of Leases.--
            (1) Term of lease.--Leases under this section shall be for 
        a term of 99 years. If the production facility relocated as a 
        condition of a lease under this section is relocated out of the 
        United States before the expiration of the 99-year lease term, 
        the Secretary of Commerce may issue a fine to the leasing 
        company of an amount determined by that Secretary.
            (2) Fee.--The rental fee for leases under this section 
        shall be $1 per acre per year.
            (3) Use of land.--Land subject to a lease under this 
        section may be used only for a production facility relocated 
        from the People's Republic of China. Such companies may 
        construct facilities on such the land subject to the lease for 
        the purposes of such production, in accordance with State and 
        Federal law.
                                 <all>
