                          Purpose and Summary

    H.R. 6080 makes improvements in the enactment of title 41, 
United States Code, into a positive law title and improves the 
Code.

                  Background and Need for Legislation

    Public Law 111-350, which was signed into law on January 4, 
2011, enacted certain laws relating to public contracts as 
title 41, United States Code, ``Public Contracts''. H.R. 6080 
makes conforming amendments in laws classified to various 
titles of the Code that are necessary because of the enactment 
of title 41, makes clarifying amendments to title 41, and makes 
technical amendments to Public Law 111-350.

                                Hearings

    The Committee on the Judiciary held no hearings on H.R. 
6080.

                        Committee Consideration

    On July 10, 2012, the Committee met in open session and 
ordered the bill H.R. 6080 favorably reported, by a 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 
were no recorded votes during the Committee's consideration of 
H.R. 6080.

                      Committee Oversight Findings

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(1) of rule XIII of the Rules 
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 budgetary authority or increased tax 
expenditures.

               Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(3) of rule XIII of the Rules 
of the House of Representatives, the Committee sets forth, with 
respect to the bill, H.R. 6080, the following estimate and 
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, July 18, 2012.
Hon. Lamar Smith, Chairman,
Committee on the Judiciary,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 6080, a bill to 
make improvements in the enactment of title 41, United States 
Code, into a positive law title and to improve the Code.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Matthew 
Pickford, who can be reached at 226-2860.
            Sincerely,
                                      Douglas W. Elmendorf,
                                                  Director.

Enclosure

cc:
        Honorable John Conyers, Jr.
        Ranking Member




 H.R. 6080--A bill to make improvements in the enactment of title 41, 
 United States Code, into a positive law title and to improve the Code.

      As ordered reported by the House Committee on the Judiciary 
                           on July 10, 2012.




    H.R. 6080 would make conforming, clarifying, and technical 
changes to most titles of the United States Code that address 
public contracts. Information from the Office of Law Revision 
Counsel indicates that the bill would make no substantive 
changes to the law; therefore, CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 
6080 would have no significant impact on the Federal budget. 
The bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; 
therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
    H.R. 6080 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and 
would not affect the budgets of State, local, or tribal 
governments.
    The CBO staff contact for this estimate is Matthew 
Pickford. This 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. 
6080 will make improvements in the enactment of title 41, 
United States Code, into a positive law title and will improve 
the Code.

                          Advisory on Earmarks

    In accordance with clause 9 of rule XXI of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, H.R. 6080 does not contain any 
congressional earmarks, limited tax benefits, or limited tariff 
benefits as defined in clause 9(e), 9(f), or 9(g) of Rule XXI.

                      Section-by-Section Analysis

practice against the employment of new or improved 
technologies, techniques, materials, and methods or of 
preassembled products which may reduce the cost or improve the 
quality of such construction, rehabilitation, and maintenance, 
and therefore stimulate expanded production of housing, except

Sec. 1739(g) (National Housing Act, Sec. 604(g))

  Sec. 604. (a) In any case in which the mortgagee under a

taken possession of the mortgaged property, in accordance with 
regulations of, and within a period to be determined by, the 
Secretary, or shall, with the consent of the Secretary, have 
otherwise acquired such property from the mortgagor after 
default, the mortgagee shall be entitled to receive the benefit 
of the insurance as hereinafter provided, upon (1) the prompt 
conveyance to the Secretary of title to the property which 
meets the requirements of rules and regulations of the 
Secretary in force at the time the mortgage was insured, and 
which is evidenced in the manner prescribed by such rules and 
regulations; and (2) the assignment to him of all claims of the 
mortgagee against the mortgagor or others, arising out of the 
mortgage transaction or foreclosure proceedings, except such 
claims as may have been released with the consent of the 
Secretary. Upon such conveyance and assignment the obligation 
of the mortgagee to pay the premium charges for insurance shall 
cease and the Secretary shall, subject to the cash adjustment 
hereinafter provided, issue to the mortgagee debentures having 
a total face value equal to the value of the mortgage and a 
certificate of claim, as hereinafter provided. For the purposes 
of this subsection, the value of the mortgage shall be 
determined, in accordance with rules and regulations prescribed 
by the Secretary, by adding to the amount of the original 
principal obligation of the mortgage which was unpaid on the 
date of the institution of foreclosure proceedings, or on the 
date of the acquisition of the property after default other 
than by foreclosure, the amount of all payments which have been 
made by the mortgagee for taxes, ground rents, and water rates, 
which are liens prior to the mortgage, special assessments 
which are noted on the application for insurance or which 
become liens after the insurance of the mortgage, insurance of 
the mortgaged property, and any mortgage insurance premiums and 
by deducting from such total amount any amount received on 
account of the mortgage after either of such dates, and any 
amount received as rent or other income from the property, less 
reasonable expenses incurred in handling the property, after 
either of such dates: Provided, That with respect to mortgages 
which are foreclosed before there shall have been paid on 
account of the principal obligation of the mortgage a sum equal 
to 10 per centum of the appraised value of the property as of 
the date the mortgage was accepted for insurance, there may be 
included in the debentures issued by the Secretary, on account 
of the cost of foreclosure (or of acquiring the property by 
other means) actually paid by the mortgagee and approved by the 
Secretary an amount--

                                 * * *

with regulations of, and within a period to be determined by, 
the Secretary, or shall, with the consent of the Secretary, 
have otherwise acquired such property from the mortgagor after

which are foreclosed before there shall have been paid on 
account of the principal obligation of the mortgage a sum equal 
to 10 per centum of the appraised value of the property as of 
the date the mortgage was accepted for insurance, there may be 
included in the debentures issued by the Secretary, on account 
of the cost of foreclosure (or of acquiring the property by 
other means) actually paid by the mortgagee and approved by the 
Secretary an amount--

Administrator is authorized, subject to the civil service and 
classification laws, to select, employ, appoint, and fix the 
compensation of such officers, employees, attorneys, and agents 
as shall be necessary to carry out the provisions of this 
chapter; to define their authority and duties; and to pay the 
costs of qualification of certain of them as notaries public. 
The Administration, with the consent of any board, commission, 
independent establishment, or executive department of the 
Government, may avail itself on a reimbursable or 
nonreimbursable basis of the use of information, services,

        to the Administrator in connection with loans made by 
        him. This shall include authority to obtain deficiency 
        judgments or otherwise in the case of mortgages

        or supplies on account of property obtained by the 
        Administrator as a result of loans made under this 
        chapter if the premium therefor or the amount thereof

        Administrator or by any officer or agent appointed by 
        him without the execution of any express delegation of 
        power or power of attorney. Nothing in this section 
        shall be construed to prevent the Administrator from 
        delegating such power by order or by power of attorney, 
        in his discretion, to any officer or agent he may 
        appoint;

                                 * * *

provisions of this Act, the Administrator is authorized to 
procure the temporary (not in excess of one year) or 
intermittent services of experts or consultants or 
organizations thereof, including stenographic reporting 
services, by contract or appointment, and in such cases such 
services shall be without regard to the civil-service and 
classification laws and, except in the case of stenographic 
reporting services by organizations, without regard to [section 
3709 of the Revised Statutes, as amended (41 U.S.C., sec. 5)]

employed may be compensated at a rate not in excess of the

  (b) Liquidated Damages Clause.--The contract clause required 
by section 8(d)(4)(F) of the Small Business Act (as added by

Sec. 638 (Small Business Act, Sec. 9)

  Sec. 9. (a) Research and development are major factors in the 
growth and progress of industry and the national economy. The 
expense of carrying on research and development programs is 
beyond the means of many small-business concerns, and such 
concerns are handicapped in obtaining the benefits of research 
and development programs conducted at Government expense. These 
small-business concerns are thereby placed at a competitive 
disadvantage. This weakens the competitive free enterprise 
system and prevents the orderly development of the national 
economy. It is the policy of the Congress that assistance be 
given to small-business concerns to enable them to undertake 
and to obtain the benefits of research and development in order 
to maintain and strengthen the competitive free enterprise 
system and the national economy.

                associated with salaries, expenses, and 
                administrative overhead (other than those 
                direct or indirect costs allowable under 
                guidelines of the Office of Management and 
                Budget and the governmentwide Federal 
                Acquisition Regulation issued in accordance 
                with [section 25(c)(1) of the Office of Federal 
                Procurement Policy Act] section 1303(a)(1) of 
                title 41, United States Code); or

Sec. 644 (Small Business Act, Sec. 15)

  Sec. 15. (a) To effectuate the purposes of this Act, small-
business concerns within the meaning of this Act shall receive 
any award or contract or any part thereof, and be awarded any 
contract for the sale of Government property, as to which it is 
determined by the Administration and the contracting 
procurement or disposal agency (1) to be in the interest of 
maintaining or mobilizing the Nation's full productive 
capacity, (2) to be in the interest of war or national defense 
programs, (3) to be in the interest of assuring that a fair 
proportion of the total purchases and contracts for property 
and services for the Government in each industry category are 
placed with small-business concerns, or (4) to be in the 
interest of assuring that a fair proportion of the total sales 
of Government property be made to small-business concerns; but 
nothing contained in this Act shall be construed to change any 
preferences or priorities established by law with respect to 
the sale of electrical power or other property by the 
Government or any agency thereof. These determinations may be 
made for individual awards or contracts or for classes of 
awards or contracts. If a proposed procurement includes in its 
statement of work goods or services currently being performed 
by a small business, and if the proposed procurement is in a 
quantity or estimated dollar value the magnitude of which 
renders small business prime contract participation unlikely, 
or if a proposed procurement for construction seeks to package 
or consolidate discrete construction projects, or the 
solicitation involves an unnecessary or unjustified bundling of 
contract requirements, as determined by the Administration, the 
Procurement Activity shall provide a copy of the proposed 
procurement to the Procurement Activity's Small Business 
Procurement Center Representative at least 30 days prior to the 
solicitation's issuance along with a statement explaining (1) 
why the proposed acquisition cannot be divided into reasonably 
small lots (not less than economic production runs) to permit 
offers on quantities less than the total requirement, (2) why 
delivery schedules cannot be established on a realistic basis 
that will encourage small business participation to the extent 
consistent with the actual requirements of the Government, (3) 
why the proposed acquisition cannot be offered so as to make 
small business participation likely, (4) why construction 
cannot be procured as separate discrete projects, or (5) why 
the agency has determined that the bundled contract (as defined 
in section 632(o) of this title) is necessary and justified. 
The thirty-day notification process shall occur concurrently 
with other processing steps required prior to issuance of the 
solicitation. Within 15 days after receipt of the proposed 
procurement and accompanying statement, if the Procurement 
Center Representative believes that the procurement as proposed 
will render small business prime contract participation 
unlikely, the Representative shall recommend to the Procurement 
Activity alternative procurement methods which would increase 
small business prime contracting opportunities. Whenever the 
Administration and the contracting procurement agency fail to 
agree, the matter shall be submitted for determination to the 
Secretary or the head of the appropriate department or agency 
by the Administrator. For purposes of clause (3) of the first 
sentence of this subsection, an industry category is a discrete 
group of similar goods and services. Such groups shall be 
determined by the Administration in accordance with the 
definition of a ``United States industry'' under the North 
American Industry Classification System, as established by the 
Office of Management and Budget, except that the Administration 
shall limit such an industry category to a greater extent than 
provided under such classification codes if the Administration 
receives evidence indicating that further segmentation for 
purposes of this paragraph is warranted due to special capital 
equipment needs or special labor or geographic requirements or 
to recognize a new industry. A market for goods or services may 
not be segmented under the preceding sentence due to geographic 
requirements unless the Government typically designates the 
area where work for contracts for such goods or services is to 
be performed and Government purchases comprise the major 
portion of the entire domestic market for such goods or 
services and, due to the fixed location of facilities, high 
mobilization costs, or similar economic factors, it is 
unreasonable to expect competition from business concerns 
located outside of the general areas where such concerns are 
located. A contract may not be awarded under this subsection if 
the award of the contract would result in a cost to the 
awarding agency which exceeds a fair market price.

Sec. 714b(h) (Community Credit Corporation Charter Act, Sec. 4(h))

  Sec. 4. General Powers.--The Corporation--

                                 * * *

  (h) May contract for the use, in accordance with the usual 
customs of trade and commerce, of plants and facilities for the 
physical handling, storage, processing, servicing, and 
transportation of the agricultural commodities subject to its 
control. The Corporation shall not have power to acquire real 
property or any interest therein except that it may (a) rent or 
lease office space necessary for the conduct of its business 
and (b) acquire real property or any interest therein for the 
purpose of providing storage adequate to carry out effectively 
and efficiently any of the Corporation's programs, or of 
securing or discharging obligations owing to the Corporation, 
or of otherwise protecting the financial interests of the 
Corporation: Provided, That the authority contained in this 
subsection shall not be utilized by the Corporation for the 
purpose of acquiring real property, or any interest therein, in 
order to provide storage facilities for any commodity unless 
the Corporation determines that existing privately owned 
storage facilities for such commodity in the area concerned are 
not adequate: Provided further, That no refrigerated cold 
storage facilities shall be constructed or purchased except 
with funds specifically provided by Congress for that purpose: 
And provided further, That any contract entered into by the 
Corporation for the use of a storage facility shall provide at 
least that (1) the rental rate charged for an extended term in 
excess of one year shall be at an annual rate less than that 
which is charged for a one-year contract, (2) any obligation of 
the Corporation to pay for the use of any space in a facility 
shall be relieved to the extent that the Corporation does not 
use the space and payment is made by another person for the use 
of such space, and (3) if the Corporation determines that it no 
longer needs the space reserved in the facility, the 
Corporation may be relieved, for the remaining term of the 
contract, of its obligations to an extent and in a manner that 
will provide significant savings to the Corporation while 
permitting the owner of the facility reasonable time to lease 
such space to another person: And provided further, That 
nothing contained in this subsection shall limit the duty of 
the Corporation, to the maximum extent practicable consistent 
with the fulfillment of the Corporation's purposes and the 
effective and efficient conduct of its business, to utilize the 
usual and customary channels, facilities, and arrangements of 
trade and commerce in the warehousing of commodities: And 
provided further, That to encourage the storage of grain on 
farms, where it can be stored at the lowest cost, the 
Corporation may make loans to grain growers needing storage 
facilities when such growers shall apply to the Corporation for 
financing the construction or purchase of suitable storage, and 
these loans shall be deducted from the proceeds of price 
support loans or purchase agreements made between the 
Corporation and the growers, except that the Secretary shall 
make such loans in areas in which the Secretary determines that 
there is a deficiency of such storage. To encourage the 
alleviation of natural resource conservation problems that 
reduce the productive capacity of the Nation's land and water 
resources or that cause degradation of environmental quality, 
the Corporation may, beginning with enactment of the 
Agriculture and Food Act of 1981, make loans to any 
agricultural producer for those natural resource conservation 
and environmental enhancement measures that are recommended by 
the applicable county and State committees established under 
section 8(b) of the Soil Conservation and Domestic Allotment 
Act and are included in the producer's conservation plan 
approved by the local soil and water conservation district; 
such loans shall be for a period not to exceed ten years at a 
rate of interest based upon the rate of interest charged the 
Corporation by the United States Treasury; the Corporation may 
make loans to any one producer in any fiscal year in an amount 
not to exceed $25,000; loans up to $10,000 in amount may be 
unsecured and loans in excess of $10,000 shall be secured; and 
the total of such unsecured and secured loans made in each 
fiscal year shall not exceed $200,000,000: Provided, That the 
authority provided by this sentence to make loans shall be 
effective only to the extent and in such amounts as may be 
provided for in prior appropriation Acts. Notwithstanding any 
other provision of law, the Commodity Credit Corporation shall, 
to the maximum extent practicable, in consultation with the 
Secretary of State, and upon terms and conditions prescribed or 
approved by the Secretary of Agriculture, accept strategic and 
critical materials produced abroad in exchange for agricultural 
commodities acquired by the Corporation. Insofar as 
practicable, in effecting such exchange of goods, the Secretary 
shall: (1) use normal commercial trade channels; (2) take 
action to avoid displacing usual marketings of United States 
agricultural commodities and the products thereof; (3) take 
reasonable precautions to prevent the resale or transshipment 
to other countries, or use for other than domestic use in the 
importing country, of agricultural commodities used for such 
exchange; and (4) give priority to commodities easily storable 
and those which serve as prime incentive goods to stimulate 
production of critical and strategic materials. The Corporation 
may solicit bids from, and utilize, private trading firms to 
effect such exchange of goods. The determination of the 
quantities and qualities of such materials which are desirable 
for stock piling and the determination of which materials are 
strategic and critical shall be made in the manner prescribed 
by section 3 of the Strategic and Critical Materials Stock 
Piling Act. Strategic and critical materials acquired by 
Commodity Credit Corporation in exchange for agricultural 
commodities shall, to the extent approved by the President, be 
transferred to the stock pile provided for by the Strategic and 
Critical Materials Stock Piling Act; and in the same fiscal 
year such materials are transferred to the stock pile the 
Commodity Credit Corporation shall be reimbursed for the 
strategic and critical materials so transferred to the stock 
pile from the funds made available for the purpose of the 
Strategic and Critical Materials Stock Piling Act, in an amount 
equal to the fair market value, as determined by the Secretary 
of the Treasury, of the material transferred to the stock pile. 
If the volume of petroleum products (including crude oil) 
stored in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is less than the 
level prescribed under section 154 of the Energy Policy and 
Conservation Act (42 U.S.C. 6234), the Corporation shall, to 
the maximum extent practicable and with the approval of the 
Secretary of Agriculture, make available annually to the 
Secretary of Energy, upon the request of the Secretary of 
Energy, a quantity of agricultural products owned by the 
Corporation with a market value at the time of such request of 
at least $300,000,000 for use by the Secretary of Energy in 
acquiring petroleum products (including crude oil) produced 
abroad for placement in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve through 
an exchange of such agricultural products. The terms and 
conditions of each such exchange, including provisions for full 
reimbursement to the Commodity Credit Corporation, shall be 
determined by the Secretary of Energy and the Secretary of 
Agriculture. Nothing contained herein shall limit the authority 
of the Commodity Credit Corporation to acquire, hold, or 
dispose of such quantity of strategic and critical materials as 
it deems advisable in carrying out its functions and protecting 
its assets: Provided, That, notwithstanding any other provision 
of law, where a grain storage facility owned by the Corporation 
is not needed by the Corporation and, upon being offered for 
sale no person offers to pay the minimum price set by the 
Corporation for such facility for use in connection with 
storage or handling of agricultural commodities, then the 
Corporation may, without declaring such facility to be excess 
property, sell it by bids at not less than such minimum price 
to any public or private nonprofit agency or organization for 
use for the purposes of such agency or organization. This 
provision shall apply also to facilities which on the effective 
date of this Act have been declared excess to the needs of the 
Commodity Credit Corporation but have not been claimed by any 
other Government agency, or surplus to the needs of the 
Government but not disposed of pursuant to the provisions of 
[the Federal Property and Administrative Services act of 1949, 
as amended] chapter 5 of title 40, United States Code.

National Park. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the 
Secretary may expend appropriated funds for the management of 
and for the construction, design, and maintenance of permanent 
improvements on such lands and interests in land as are donated 
by the State of California in a manner not inconsistent with 
such reverters and other conditions.
  (b)(1) Effective on the date of enactment of this Act, there 
is hereby vested in the United States all right, title, and 
interest in, and the right to immediate possession of, all real 
property within the park boundaries designated in maps NPS-RED-
7114-A and NPS-RED-7114-B and effective on March 27, 1978, 
there is hereby vested in the United States all right, title, 
and interest in, and the right to immediate possession of, all 
real property within the area indicated as ``Proposed 
Additions'' on the map entitled ``Additional Lands, Redwood 
National Park, California,'' numbered 167-80005-D and dated 
March 1978, and all right, title, and interest in, and the 
right to immediate possession of the down tree personal 
property (trees severed from the ground by man) severed prior 
to January 1, 1975, or subsequent to January 31, 1978, within 
the area indicated as ``Proposed Additions'' on the map 
entitled ``Additional Lands, Redwood National Park, 
California,'' numbered 167-80005-D and dated March 1978, except 
real property owned by the State of California or a political 
subdivision thereof and except as provided in paragraph (3) of 
this subsection. The Secretary shall allow for the orderly 
termination of all operations on real property acquired by the 
United States under this subsection, and for the removal of 
equipment, facilities, and personal property therefrom.

                                 * * *

  (2) The United States will pay just compensation to the owner 
of any real property taken by paragraph (1) of this subsection. 
Such compensation shall be paid either: (A) by the Secretary of 
the Treasury from money appropriated from the Land and Water 
Conservation Fund, including money appropriated to the Fund 
pursuant to section 4(b) of the Land and Water Conservation 
Fund Act of 1965, as amended, subject to the appropriation 
limitation in section 10 of this Act, upon certification to him 
by the Secretary of the agreed negotiated value of such 
property, or the valuation of the property awarded by judgment, 
including interest at the rate of 6 per centum per annum from 
the date of taking the property to the date of payment 
therefor; or (B) by the Secretary, if the owner of the land 
concurs, with any federally owned property available to him for 
purposes of exchange pursuant to the provisions of section 79e 
of this title; or (C) by the Secretary using any combination of 
such money or federally owned property. Any action against the 
United States with regard to the provisions of this subchapter 
and for the recovery of just compensation for the lands and 
interests therein taken by the United States, and for the down 
tree personal property taken, shall be brought in the United 
States district court for the district where the land is 
located without regard to the amount claimed. The United States 
may initiate proceedings at any time seeking a determination of 
just compensation in the district court in the manner provided 
by sections 1358 and 1403 of title 28, United States Code, and 
may deposit in the registry of the court the estimated just 
compensation, or a part thereof, in accordance with the 
procedure generally described by section 258aa of title 40, 
United States Code. Interest shall not be allowed on such 
amounts as shall have been paid into the court. In the event 
that the Secretary determines that the fee simple title to any 
property (real or personal) taken under this section is not 
necessary for the purposes of this Act, he may, with particular 
attention to minimizing the payment of severance damages and to 
allow for the orderly removal of down timber, revest title to 
such property subject to such reservations, terms, and 
conditions, if any, as he deems appropriate to carry out the 
purposes of this Act, and may compensate the former owner for 
no more than the fair market value of the rights so reserved, 
except that the Secretary may not revest title to any property 
for which just compensation has been paid; or, the Secretary 
may sell at fair market value without regard to the 
requirements of [the Federal Property and Administrative 
Services Act of 1949, as amended] chapter 5 of title 40, United 
States Code, such down timber as in his judgment may be removed 
without damage to the park, the proceeds from such sales being 
credited to the Treasury of the United States. If the State of 
California designates a right-of-way for a bypass highway 
around the eastern boundary of Prairie Creek Redwood State Park 
prior to October 1, 1984, the Secretary is authorized and 
directed to acquire such lands or interests in lands as may be 
necessary for such a highway and, subject to such conditions as 
the Secretary may determine are necessary to assure the 
adequate protection of Redwood National Park, shall thereupon 
donate the designated right-of-way to the State of California 
for a new bypass highway from a point south of Prairie Creek 
Redwood State Park through the drainage of May Creek and Boyes 
Creek to extend along the eastern boundary of Prairie Creek 
Redwood State Park within Humboldt County. Such acreage as may 
be necessary in the judgment of the Secretary for this 
conveyance, and for a buffer thereof, shall be deemed to be a 
publicly owned highway for purposes of section 101(a)(2) of 
this amendment effective on the date of enactment of this 
section.

                                 * * *

  (c) If any individual tract or parcel of land acquired is 
partly inside and partly outside the boundaries of the park or 
the administrative site the Secretary may, in order to minimize 
the payment of severance damages, acquire the whole of the 
tract or parcel and exchange that part of it which is outside 
the boundaries for land or interests in land inside the 
boundaries or for other land or interests in land acquired 
pursuant to this Act, and dispose of so much thereof as is not 
so utilized in accordance with the provisions of [the Federal 
Proprety and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (63 Stat. 
377)] chapter 5 of title 40. The cost of any land so acquired 
and disposed of shall not be charged against the limitation on 
authorized appropriations contained in section 10 of this Act.

Sec. 160b(a) (Public Law 91-661, Sec. 201(a))

  Sec. 201. (a) The Secretary may acquire lands or interests 
therein within the boundaries of the park by donation, purchase 
with donated or appropriated funds, or exchange. When any tract 
of land is only partly within such boundaries, the Secretary 
may acquire all or any portion of the land outside of such 
boundaries in order to minimize the payment of severance costs. 
Land so acquired outside of the park boundaries may be 
exchanged by the Secretary for non-Federal lands within the 
park boundaries. Any portion of land acquired outside the park 
boundaries and not utilized for exchange shall be reported to 
the General Services Administration for disposal under [the 
Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (63 
Stat. 77), as amended ] chapter 5 of title 40, United States 
Code. Any Federal property located within the boundaries of the 
park may be transferred without consideration to the 
administrative jurisdiction of the Secretary for the purposes 
of the park. Lands within the boundaries of the park owned by 
the State of Minnesota, or any political subdivision thereof, 
may be acquired only by donation.

Sec. 343b (Act of December 22, 1944, Sec. 2)

  Sec. 2. The Secretary of the Interior, for and on behalf of

regard to the provisions of [section 355, as amended, section 
116, as amended and section 3709 of the Revised Statutes 
(except the last paragraph of said section 355, as amended)] 
sections 3111 and 3112 of title 40, United States Code, and 
section 6101 of title 41, United States Code (except said 
section 3112, which shall be applicable hereto), or any other 
provision of law. The Secretary of the Interior is further

expenses in connection with such conveyance and transfer.

Sec. 396f (Public Law 98-146, Sec. 317)

  Sec. 317. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the 
Secretary of the Interior is authorized and shall seek to 
acquire the private lands described in section 505(a) of the 
Act of November 10, 1978 (92 Stat. 3467), by crediting a 
surplus property account, to be established in the name of each 
landowner, in the amount of the acquisition price for such 
landowner's lands. The National Park Service shall update the 
existing appraisals for the parcels and, based on the approved 
appraised values, shall negotiate with the landowners for 
acquisition prices. Each owner may, using such credits in his 
surplus property account, bid, as any other bidder for surplus 
property, wherever located, in accordance with [the Federal 
Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949] chapter 5 
title 40, United States Code. The Administrator of the General 
Services Administration shall establish each landowner's 
surplus property account and shall adjust the credits in such 
accounts to reflect successful bids under this section. Title 
to the lands described in this section shall pass to the 
Government at the time of establishment of the surplus property 
accounts. The credits in any of the surplus property accounts 
may be transferred or sold in whole or in part at any time by 
the landowner to any other party, thereby vesting such party 
with all the rights of the landowner, and after such transfer, 
the landowner shall notify the Administrator of the transfer. 
At any time the Secretary may purchase the balance of any 
surplus property account subject to the availability of 
appropriated funds. The land owner may also use the credits in 
exchange for excess lands, wherever located, under the 
jurisdiction of the Secretary of the Interior.

in subsection (a) of this section, the Secretary may acquire 
all or any portion of the land outside of such boundaries in

                    provisions)

  Sec. 3. Inasmuch as (A) most of the lands added to the 
Badlands National Park by section 1 of this Act are inside the 
boundaries of the Pine Ridge Sioux Indian Reservation, (B) such 
lands are also within a tract of land forty-three miles long 
and twelve and one-half miles wide which is in the north-

held by the tribe are concerned, should be returned to Indian 
ownership in any event, the Congress hereby finds that such 
exchange would be in the national interest and authorizes the

methods in order to avoid the payment of severance costs. Land 
so acquired outside of the boundaries of the National Area may

property known as the Hydraulic Brick Company located in 
Independence, Ohio, the Secretary shall have the first right of 
refusal to purchase such property for a purchase price not 
exceeding the fair market value of such property on the date it 
is offered for sale. When acquired such property shall be 
administered as part of the park, subject to the laws and 
regulations applicable thereto. The park shall also comprise 
any lands designated as ``City of Akron Lands'' on the map 
referred to in the first sentence which are offered as 
donations to the Department of the Interior or which become 
privately owned. The Secretary shall revise such map to depict 
such lands as part of the park.

  (d) When any tract of land is only partly within the 
boundaries of the park, the Secretary may acquire all or any 
portion of the land outside of such boundaries in order to

such boundaries in order to minimize the payment of severance 
costs. Land so acquired outside of the boundaries may be 
exchanged by the Secretary for non-Federal lands within the 
boundaries, and any land so acquired and not utilized for 
exchange shall be reported to the General Services 
Administration for disposal under [the Federal Property and 
Administrative Services Act of 1949 (63 Stat. 377), as amended] 
chapter 5 of title 40, United States Code. Any Federal property 
located within the boundaries of the recreation area may be 
transferred without consideration to the administrative 
jurisdiction of the Secretary for the purposes of the 
recreation area. Lands within the boundaries of the recreation 
area owned by the State of Oklahoma, or any political

terms:
          (1) Minimum wage.--The contract and bid specification

        various classes of service employees engaged in the 
        performance of the contract or any subcontract, as 
        determined by the Secretary or the Secretary's 
        authorized representative, in accordance with 
        prevailing rates in the locality, or, where a 
        collective-bargaining agreement covers the service 
        employees, in accordance with the rates provided for in 
        the agreement, including prospective wage increases 
        provided for in the agreement as a result of arm's

        performance of a contract may be withheld from accrued 
        payments due on the contract or on any other contract 
        between the same contractor and the Federal Government.

        employee] all service employees with respect to whom 
        there has been a failure to pay the compensation 
        required pursuant to this chapter, the Federal 
        Government may bring action against the contractor, 
        subcontractor, or any sureties in any court of 
        competent jurisdiction to recover the remaining amount 
        of underpayment. Any amount recovered shall be held in 
        the deposit fund and shall be paid, on order of the 
        Secretary, directly to the [underpaid employee] 
        underpaid employees. Any amount not paid to an employee 
        because of inability to do so within 3 years shall be 
        covered into the Treasury as miscellaneous receipts.

                                 * * *

otherwise because of unusual circumstances, a Federal 
Government contract may not be awarded to a person or firm

years have elapsed from the date of publication of the list. If 
the Secretary does not recommend otherwise because of unusual 
circumstances, the Secretary shall, not later than 90 days 
after [a hearing examiner] an administrative law judge has made 
a finding of a violation of this chapter, forward to the 
Comptroller General the name of the person or firm found to 
have violated this chapter.

enforce this chapter, including the Secretary's authority to 
prescribe rules and regulations, issue orders, hold hearings, 
make decisions based on findings of fact, and take other 
appropriate action under this chapter.
  (b) Limitations and Regulations for Variations, Tolerances, 
and Exemptions.--The Secretary may provide reasonable 
limitations and may prescribe rules and regulations allowing 
reasonable variation, tolerances, and exemptions with respect 
to this chapter (other than subsection (f)), but only in 
special circumstances where the Secretary determines that the 
limitation, variation, tolerance, or exemption is necessary and 
proper in the public interest or to avoid the serious 
impairment of Federal Government business, and is in accord 
with the remedial purpose of this chapter to protect prevailing 
labor standards.
  (c) Preservation of Wages and Benefits Due Under Predecessor 
Contracts.--
          (1) In general.--Under a contract which succeeds a 
        contract subject to this chapter, and under which 
        substantially the same services are furnished, a 
        contractor or subcontractor may not pay a service 
        employee less than [the wages and fringe benefits the 
        service employee would have received under the 
        predecessor contract, including accrued wages and 
        fringe benefits and any prospective increases in wages 
        and fringe benefits provided for in a collective-
        bargaining agreement as a result of arm's-length 
        negotiations] the wages and fringe benefits provided 
        for in a collective-bargaining agreement as a result of 
        arm's-length negotiations to which the service 
        employees would have been entitled if they were 
        employed under the predecessor contract, including 
        accrued wages and fringe benefits and any prospective 
        increases in wages and fringe benefits provided for in 
        the collective-bargaining agreement.
          (2) Exception.--This subsection does not apply if the 
        Secretary finds after a hearing in accordance with 
        regulations adopted by the Secretary that wages and 
        fringe benefits [under the predecessor contract] 
        established under the predecessor contract through 
        collective bargaining are substantially at variance 
        with wages and fringe benefits prevailing in the same 
        locality for services of a similar character.
  (d) Duration of Contracts.--Subject to limitations in annual 
appropriation acts but notwithstanding any other law, a 
contract to which this chapter applies may, if authorized by 
the Secretary, be for any term of years not exceeding 5, if the 
contract provides for periodic adjustment of wages and fringe 
benefits pursuant to future determinations, issued in the 
manner prescribed in section 6703 of this title at least once 
every 2 years during the term of the contract, covering [each 
class of service employee] the various classes of service 
employees.

                    Act of 1951, Sec. 302(b))

  Sec. 302. (a) Consistent with other requirements of national 
defense, any permanent housing constructed pursuant to the 
authority of this title shall consist of one- to four-family 
dwelling structures (including row houses) so arranged that 
they may be offered for separate sale. All housing of permanent 
construction which is constructed or acquired under the 
authority of this title shall be sold as expeditiously as 
possible and in the public interest taking into consideration 
the continuation of the need for such housing by persons 
engaged in national defense activities. All dwelling structures 
of permanent construction designed for occupancy by not more 
than four families (including row houses) shall be offered for 
sale, and preference in the purchase of any such dwelling 
structure shall be granted to occupants and to veterans over 
other prospective purchasers. As among veterans, preference in 
the purchase of any such dwelling structure shall be given to 
disabled veterans whose disability has been determined by the 
Secretary of Veterans Affairs to be service-connected. All 
dwelling structures of permanent construction in any housing 
project which are designed for occupancy by more than four 
families (and other structures in such project which are not 
sold separately) shall be sold as an entity. On such sales 
first preference shall be given for such period not less than 
ninety days nor more than six months from the date of the 
initial offering of such project as the Administrator may 
determine, to groups of veterans organized on a mutual 
ownership or cooperative basis (provided that any such group 
shall accept as a member of its organization, on the same 
terms, subject to the same conditions, and with the same 
privileges and responsibilities, required of, and extended to, 
other members of the group any tenant occupying a dwelling unit 
in such project, at any time during such period as the 
Administrator shall deem appropriate, starting on the date of 
the announcement by the Administrator of the availability of 
such project). The Administrator shall provide an equitable 
method of selecting the purchasers when preferred purchasers 
(or groups of preferred purchasers) in the same preference 
class or containing members in the same preference class 
compete with each other. Sales pursuant to this section shall 
be for cash or credit, upon such terms as the Administrator 
shall determine, and at the fair value of the property as 
determined by him: Provided, That full payment to the 
Government for the property sold shall be required within a 
period of not exceeding twenty-five years with interest on 
unpaid balances at not less than 4 per centum per annum.
  (b) Where it is necessary to provide housing under this title 
in locations where, in the determination of the Secretary of 
Housing and Urban Development, there appears to be no need for 
such housing beyond the period during which it is needed for 
housing persons engaged in national defense activities, the 
provisions of section 102 hereof shall not be applicable and 
temporary housing which is of a mobile or portable character or 
which is otherwise constructed so as to be available for reuse 
at other locations or existing housing built or acquired by the 
United States under authority of any other law shall be 
provided. Any temporary housing constructed or acquired under 
this title which the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development 
determines to be no longer needed for use under this title 
shall, unless transferred to the Department of Defense pursuant 
to section 306 hereof, or reported as excess to the 
Administrator of the General Services Administration pursuant 
to [the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 
1949, as amended] chapter 5 of title 40, United States Code, be 
sold as soon as practicable to the highest responsible bidder 
after public advertising, except that if one or more of such 
bidders is a veteran purchasing a dwelling unit for his own 
occupancy the sale of such unit shall be made to the highest 
responsible bidder who is a veteran so purchasing: Provided, 
That the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development may reject 
any bid for less than two-thirds of the appraised value as 
determined by him: Provided further, That the housing may be 
sold at fair value (as determined by the Secretary of Housing 
and Urban Development) to a public body for public use: And 
provided further, That the housing structures shall be sold for 
removal from the site, except that they may be sold for use on 
the site if the governing body of the locality has adopted a 
resolution approving use of such structures on the site.

  (2)(A) Contracts under this title shall be energy savings 
performance contracts and shall require an annual energy audit 
and specify the terms and conditions of any Government payments 
and performance guarantees. Any such performance guarantee 
shall provide that the contractor is responsible for

procedures and methods, the Secretary, with the concurrence of 
the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council, shall determine 
which existing regulations are inconsistent with the intent of

Sec. 1918(b) (Joint Resolution of December 30, 1947, Sec. 8(b))

  Sec. 8.(a) In order to alleviate shortages in foods and 
feeds, and to assist in stabilizing prices, the President shall 
carry out a program for the conservation of food and feed. In 
carrying out such program, the President is authorized, through 
the dissemination of information, educational and other 
campaigns, the furnishing of assistance, and such other 
voluntary and cooperative measures as he deems necessary or 
appropriate, to encourage and promote the efficient 
utilization, care, and preservation of food and feed, the 
elimination of practices which waste food and feed, the control 
and eradication of insects and rodents, the consumption of less 
of these foods and feeds which are in short supply and more of 
those foods and feeds which are in abundant supply, and other 
conservation practices. The authority herein conferred may be 
exercised by the President through such departments, agencies, 
independent establishments, and officials of the Federal 
Government and such State, local, and private agencies as he 
may determine.
  (b) There is hereby authorized to be appropriated to the 
President such sums as may be necessary to carry out this 
section. To enable the President to carry out this section for 
the remainder of the fiscal year ending June 30, 1948, there is 
made available not to exceed $1,000,000 from any funds made 
available by the Congress for carrying out Public Law 84, 
Eightieth Congress, or from any funds made available by the 
Congress for interim foreign aid. Funds made available for the 
purpose of this section may be used for necessary 
administrative expenses, including personal services in the 
District of Columbia and elsewhere, purchase or hire of motor 
vehicles, temporary or intermittent services of experts or 
consultants or organizations thereof, including stenographic 
reporting services, by contract, without regard to the civil 
service and classification laws (the compensation of any such 
individual not to exceed $50 per day). Funds made available for 
the purposes of this section may be allotted for any of the 
purposes of this section to any department, agency, or 
independent establishment of the Government, or transferred to 
any other agency requested to assist in carrying out this 
section. Funds allotted to any department, agency, or 
independent establishment of the Government shall be available 
for obligation and expenditure in accordance with the laws 
governing obligations and expenditures of the department, 
agency, or independent establishment, or organizational unit

control of the National Science Foundation are hereby 
transferred to the General Services Administration for disposal 
in accordance with [the Federal Property and Administrative 
Services Act of 1949] chapter 5 of title 40, United States 
Code, except that the Administrator of General Services shall 
first offer the laboratories for public sale before seeking to 
dispose of them by transfer or assignment to any Federal 
agency. The Administrator of General Services, before he offers 
the laboratories to the public for sale, shall ascertain what 
the value of the laboratories would be to Government agencies 
which would make substantial use thereof, and the Administrator 
shall not sell the laboratories to the public unless he finds, 
after consultation with the Director of the Budget Bureau, that 
such sale to the public would be in the best interests of the 
United States, taking into consideration among other relevant 
factors the value of the laboratories to any interested agency 
and the amounts offered by public bidders. The National Science 
Foundation is authorized to reimburse the General Services 
Administration in advance for expenses necessary for the 
protection and maintenance of the laboratories up to June 30, 
1957.
