     capital equipment necessary for the delivery of financial, 
     administrative, and information technology services of 
     primary benefit to the agencies of the Department of 
     Agriculture, such transferred funds to remain available until

       Sec. 772. (a) The Secretary of Agriculture (referred to in 
     this section as the ``Secretary'') shall carry out a pilot 
     program during fiscal year 2017 with respect to the 2016 crop 
     year for county-level agriculture risk coverage payments 
     under section 1117(b)(1) of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (7 
     U.S.C. 9017(b)(1)), that provides all or some of the State 
     Farm Service Agency offices in each State the opportunity to 
     provide agricultural producers in the State a supplemental 
     payment described in subsection (c) based on the alternate 
     calculation method described in subsection (b) for 1 or more 
     counties in a State if the office for that State determines 
     that the alternate calculation method is necessary to ensure 
     that, to the maximum extent practicable, there are not 
     significant yield calculation disparities between comparable 
     counties in the State.
       (b) The alternate calculation method referred to in 
     subsection (a) is a method of calculating the actual yield 
     for the 2016 crop year for county-level agriculture risk 
     coverage payments under section 1117(b)(1) of the 
     Agricultural Act of 2014 (7 U.S.C. 9017(b)(1)), under which--
       (1) county data of the National Agricultural Statistics 
     Service (referred to in this section as ``NASS data'') is 
     used for the calculations;
       (2) if there is insufficient NASS data for a county (as 
     determined under standards of the Secretary in effect as of 
     the date of enactment of this Act) or the available NASS data 
     produces a substantially disparate result, the calculation of 
     the county yield is determined using comparable contiguous 
     county NASS data as determined by the Farm Service Agency 
     office in the applicable State; and
       (3) if there is insufficient NASS data for a comparable 
     contiguous county (as determined under standards of the 
     Secretary in effect as of the date of enactment of this Act), 
     the calculation of the county yield is determined using 
     reliable yield data from other sources, such as Risk 
     Management Agency data, National Agricultural Statistics 
     Service district data, National Agricultural Statistics 
     Service State yield data, or other data as determined by the 
     Farm Service Agency office in the applicable State.
       (c)(1) A supplemental payment made under the pilot program 
     established under this section may be made to an agricultural 
     producer who is subject to the alternate calculation method 
     described in subsection (b) if that agricultural producer 
     would otherwise receive a county-level agriculture risk 
     coverage payment for the 2016 crop year in an amount that is 
     less than the payment that the agricultural producer would 
     receive under the alternate calculation method.
       (2) The amount of a supplemental payment to an agricultural 
     producer under this section may not exceed the difference 
     between--
       (A) the payment that the agricultural producer would have 
     received without the alternate calculation method described 
     in subsection (b); and
       (B) the payment that the agricultural producer would 
     receive using the alternate calculation method.
       (d)(1) There is appropriated to the Secretary, out of funds 
     of the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, $5,000,000, to 
     remain available until September 30, 2018, to carry out the 
     pilot program described in this section.
       (2) Of the funds appropriated, the Secretary shall use not 
     more than $5,000,000 to carry out the pilot program described 
     in this section.
       (e)(1) To the maximum extent practicable, the Secretary 
     shall select States to participate in the pilot program under 
     this section so the cost of the pilot program equals the 
     amount provided under subsection (d).
       (2) To the extent that the cost of the pilot program 
     exceeds the amount made available, the Secretary shall reduce 
     all payments under the pilot program on a pro rata basis.
       (f) Nothing in this section affects the calculation of 
     actual yield for purposes of county-level agriculture risk 
     coverage payments under section 1117(b)(1) of the 
     Agricultural Act of 2014 (7 U.S.C. 9017(b)(1)) other than 
     payments made in accordance with the pilot program under this 
     section.
       (g) A calculation of actual yield made using the alternate 
     calculation method described in subsection (b) shall not be 
     used as a basis for any agriculture risk coverage payment 
     determinations under section 1117 of the Agricultural Act of 
     2014 (7 U.S.C. 9017) other than for purposes of the pilot 
     program under this section.
       Sec. 773.  None of the funds made available by this Act or 
     any other Act may be used--
       (1) in contravention of section 7606 of the Agricultural 
     Act of 2014 (7 U.S.C. 5940); or
       (2) to prohibit the transportation, processing, sale, or 
     use of industrial hemp that is grown or cultivated in 
     accordance with section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014, 
     within or outside the State in which the industrial hemp is 
     grown or cultivated.
       Sec. 774.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, for 
     purposes of applying the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act 
     (21 U.S.C. 301 et seq.), the acceptable market name of 
     Lithodes aequispinus is ``golden king crab.''

     such that a significant diversion of such articles has and

     that this further action is not necessary to protect the 
     interests of the Government.
       Sec. 746.  None of the funds made available by this or any 
     other Act may be used to enter into a contract, memorandum of
