(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.
