                          Purpose and Summary

    H.R. 3237 would enact certain laws relating to national and 
commercial space programs as title 51, United States Code, 
``National and Commercial Space Programs''.
     
     

                  Background and Need for Legislation

    H.R. 3237 revises and restates certain laws relating to 
national and commercial space programs and re-enacts those laws 
as title 51, United States Code. The bill was prepared by the 
Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the House of 
Representatives, as part of its responsibility under 2 U.S.C. 
285b to submit to the Committee on the Judiciary proposed bills 
to enact titles of the United States Code into positive law.
     
    This bill has undergone extensive review in two previous 
Congresses. Predecessor bills to H.R. 3237 were introduced in 
the 109th and 110th Congresses -- H.R. 3039 in the 109th, and 
H.R. 4780 in the 110th. This bill is substantially identical to 
H.R. 4780, with a few revisions to respond to comments 
received.
     
     

                    Conformity With Original Intent

    In the drafting, the intent is to comply with the standard 
set forth in 2 U.S.C. 285b(1), that the restatement of existing 
law shall conform to ``the understood policy, intent, and 
purpose of the Congress in the original enactments, with such 
amendments and corrections as will remove ambiguities, 
contradictions, and other imperfections . . . .''
     
    In restating existing law, this bill consolidates various 
provisions of law which have been enacted separately over a 
period of many years, reorganizing them, conforming style and 
terminology, modernizing obsolete language, and correcting 
drafting errors. These changes are not intended to have 
substantive effect, or to impair in any way the precedential 
value of earlier judicial decisions or other interpretations.
     
    This bill is intended to restate existing law without 
substantive change. That enactment of a bill such as this one 
does not make substantive change in the law, absent an 
unequivocal expression of Congressional intent to make such a 
change, has been repeatedly held in numerous cases, including 
the following:
     
    Finley v. United States, 490 U.S. 545, 553-555 (1989).
     
    Cass v. United States, 417 U.S. 72, 81-82 (1974).
     
    Tidewater Oil Co. v. U.S., 409 U.S. 151, 161-162 (1972).
     
    United States v. Cook, 384 U.S. 257, 260 (1966).
     
    Fourco Glass Co. v. Transmirra Products Corp., 353 U.S. 
222, 226-227 (1957).
     
    Washington-Dulles Transportation, Ltd. v. Metropolitan 
Washington Airports Authority, 263 F.3d 371, 378-379 (4th Cir. 
2001).
     
    Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Co. v. United States, 
617 F.2d 485, 490-491 (7th Cir. 1980).
     
    Trailer Marine Transport Corp. v. Federal Maritime 
Commission, 602 F.2d 379, 383 (D.C. Cir. 1979).

ordered the bill, H.R. 3237, favorably reported, by voice vote, 
a quorum being present.
     
     

                            Committee Votes

    In compliance with clause 3(b) of rule XIII of the Rules of 
the House of Representatives, the Committee advises that there

                      Committee Oversight Findings

of the House of Representatives, the Committee advises that the 
findings and recommendations of the Committee, based on 
oversight activities under clause 2(b)(1) of rule X of the 
Rules of the House of Representatives, are incorporated in the 
descriptive portions of this report.
     
     

               New Budget Authority and Tax Expenditures

    Clause 3(c)(2) of rule XIII of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives is inapplicable because this legislation does 
not provide new budget authority or increased tax expenditures.

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(3) of rule XIII of the Rules

comparison prepared by the Director of the Congressional Budget 
Office under section 402 of the Congressional Budget Act of 
1974:
     
                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                  Washington, DC, October 30, 2009.
Honorable John Conyers, Jr.
    Chairman,
    Committee on the Judiciary,
    U.S. House of Representatives,
    Washington, DC 20515.

    Dear Mr. Chairman:

    The Congressional Budget Office has prepared the enclosed 
cost estimate for H.R. 3237, a bill to enact certain laws 
relating to national and commercial space programs as title 51, 
United States Code, ``National and Commercial Space Programs.''
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Jeff LaFave, 
who can be reached at 226-2860.
                            Sincerely,
                            Douglas W. Elmendorf

    Enclosure
    cc: Honorable Lamar Smith
       Ranking Minority Member
     
    H.R. 3237--A bill to enact certain laws relating to 
national and commercial space programs as title 51, United 
States Code, ``National and Commercial Space Programs''
    As ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary 
on October 21, 2009
     
    H.R. 3237 would codify certain laws relating to national 
and commercial space programs as title 51 of the United States 
Code. In restating existing law, the legislation would make 
technical changes to the law involving national and commercial 
space programs. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 3237 would 
have no significant impact on the federal budget and would not 
affect direct spending or revenues.
    H.R. 3237 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and 
would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments.
    The CBO staff contact for this estimate is Jeff LaFave. The 
estimate was approved by Theresa Gullo, Deputy Assistant 
Director for Budget Analysis.
     
     

                    Performance Goals and Objectives

    The Committee states that pursuant to clause 3(c)(4) of 
rule XIII of the Rules of the House of Representatives, H.R. 
3237 will revise and restate certain laws relating to national 
and commercial space programs, and re-enact those laws as title 
51, United States Code.
     
     

                   Constitutional Authority Statement

    Pursuant to clause 3(d)(1) of rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the Committee finds the authority for 
this legislation in article I, section 8 of the Constitution.
     
     

                          Advisory on Earmarks

    In accordance with clause 9 of rule XXI of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, H.R. 3237 does not contain any 
congressional earmarks, limited tax benefits, or limited tariff 
benefits as defined in clause 9(d), 9(e), or 9(f) of Rule XXI.

    Chapter 201 of title 51 restates the National Aeronautics 
and Space Act of 1958. Although short titles are generally 
eliminated as unnecessary in positive law titles of the United 
States Code, in this case it was suggested that the short title 
``National Aeronautics and Space Act'' be provided for 
convenience.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In subsection (b), the words ``in conformity with section 
201(e)'', which appeared at the end of the subsection, are 
omitted as obsolete. Section 201 of Public Law 85-568, which 
was classified to former section 2471 of title 42 (last 
appearing in the 1970 edition of the United States Code), 
established the National Aeronautics and Space Council, with 
the functions of the Council specified in section 201(e). Those 
functions included advising the President ``as he may request'' 
with respect to promoting cooperation and resolving differences 
among agencies of the United States engaged in aeronautical and 
space activities. The words are obsolete because section 
3(a)(4) of Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1973 (5 App. U.S.C.), 
abolished the National Aeronautics and Space Council, including 
the office of Executive Secretary of the Council, together with 
its functions.
    In subsection (c), the words ``(as established by title II 
of this Act)'', which appeared after ``Administration'', are 
omitted as unnecessary.
    In subsection (d), the word ``and'', appearing at the end 
of paragraph (8), is omitted as unnecessary because of the 
introductory words ``one or more of the following''.

    In subsection (b), in the matter before paragraph (1), the 
words ``chapter 51 and subchapter III of chapter 53 of title 
5'' are substituted for ``the Classification Act of 1949, as 
amended'' on authority of section 7(b) of Public Law 89-554 (80 
Stat. 631), the first section of which enacted Title 5, 
Government Organization and Employees.
    In subsection (c)(2), the words ``section 8141 of title 
40'' are substituted for ``the Act of March 3, 1877 (40 U.S.C. 
34)'' on authority of section 5(c) of Public Law 107-217 (116 
Stat. 1303), the first section of which enacted Title 40, 
Public Buildings, Property, and Works.
    In subsection (c)(4), the words ``in accordance with the 
provisions of chapters 1 to 11 of title 40 and in accordance 
with title III of the Federal Property and Administrative 
Services Act of 1949 (41 U.S.C. 251 et seq.)'' are substituted 
for ``in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Property 
and Administrative Services Act of 1949, as amended (40 U.S.C. 
471 et seq.)'' on authority of section 5(c) of Public Law 107-

40, Public Buildings, Property, and Works.
    In subsection (e), the words ``subsections (a) and (b) of

the first section of which enacted Title 31, Money and Finance.
    In subsection (i), the words ``maximum rate payable under

101-509, 5 U.S.C. 5376 note).

20114(b)..............  42 U.S.C. 2474(c).
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In subsection (a), the words ``through the President'' are 
substituted for ``through the Liaison Committee'' because the 
Civilian-Military Liaison Committee, which was established by 
section 204(a) of the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 
1958 (42 U.S.C. 2474(a)), was abolished and its functions, 
together with the functions of its chairman and other officers, 
were transferred to the President by sections 1(e) and 3(a) of 
Reorganization Plan No. 4 of 1965 (5 App. U.S.C.).
     In subsection (b), the words ``as provided in section 201 
(e)'', which appeared at the end of the subsection, are omitted 
as obsolete. Section 201 of Public Law 85-568, which was 
classified to former section 2471 of title 42 (last appearing 
in the 1970 edition of the United States Code), established the 
National Aeronautics and Space Council, with the functions of 
the Council specified in section 201(e). Those functions 
included advising the President ``as he may request'' with 
respect to promoting cooperation and resolving differences 
among agencies of the United States engaged in aeronautical and 
space activities. The words are obsolete because section 
3(a)(4) of Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1973 (5 App. U.S.C.), 
abolished the National Aeronautics and Space Council, including 
the office of Executive Secretary of the Council, together with 
its functions.

    In subsections (a)(2) and (b), the words ``section 102(c) 
of this Act'', which appear in section 206 of Public Law 85-568 
(72 Stat. 432), are treated as referring to section 102(d), 
rather than section 102(c), of Public Law 85-568 because of the 
redesignation done by section 110(a)(2) of the National 
Aeronautics and Space Administration Authorization Act, 1985 
(Public Law 98-361, 98 Stat. 426). Section 102(d) of Public Law

unnecessary.

    In subsection (e), the words ``wrongful act or omission''

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In subsection (d)(3), the words ``without regard to the 
date on which the Administration entered into the waiver'' are 
substituted for ``without regard to whether it was entered into 
before, on, or after the date of enactment of this Act'' to 
avoid an ambiguity in the law. Literally, the words ``the date 
of enactment of this Act'' mean July 29, 1958, the date of 
enactment of Public Law 85-568. However, the intended meaning 
of the words ``the date of enactment of this Act'' is probably 
October 20, 1999, the date of enactment of Public Law 106-74. 
The question as to which date is actually intended is rendered 
inconsequential by the words ``before, on, or after''.

    This section restates provisions originally enacted as part 
of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration 
Authorization Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-155, 119 Stat. 2895), 
and not as part of the Commercial Space Act of 1998 (Public Law 
105-303, 112 Stat. 2843), which is generally restated in this 
chapter.
    In subsection (a), in the last sentence, the word 
``Administration'' is substituted for ``agency'' for clarity 
and because of the definition of ``Administration'' added by 
section 10101 of title 51.
    In subsection (b), the date ``December 30, 2005'' is 
substituted for ``the date of enactment of this Act'' to 
reflect the date of enactment of the National Aeronautics and 
Space Administration Authorization Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-
155, 119 Stat. 2895).

the Land Remote Sensing Policy Act of 1992 (Public Law 102-555, 
106 Stat. 4168)'' are substituted for ``sections 102 and 103'' 
to clarify the reference. The reference to sections 102 and 103 
of the Land Remote Sensing Policy Act of 1992 is retained in 
text, notwithstanding the fact that sections 102 and 103 of the 
Act are repealed as obsolete, because oversight 
responsibilities may continue for contracts entered into under 
the now obsolete provisions.
    In subsection (e)(2), in the matter before subparagraph 
(A), the word ``biennially'' is substituted for ``Within 1 year 
after the date of the enactment of this Act and biennially 
thereafter,'' to eliminate obsolete language.
