of the United States in the project area and lands acquired under

this section; to sell, exchange, or lease such lands; to dedicate

portions of such lands for public purposes in keeping with sound

project development; to acquire in the name of the United States,

at prices satisfactory to him, such lands or interests in lands,

this Act. Any moneys realized on account of donations for purposes

of this Act shall be covered into the Treasury as trust funds.

(b) Terms of contracts; qualifications of applicants; prohibited

disposals

Contracts, exchanges, and leases made under this section shall be

on terms that, in the Secretary's judgment, are in keeping with

contracts shall be on a basis that, in the Secretary's judgment,

provides for the return, in a reasonable period of years, of not

less than the appraised value of the land and improvements

thereon. Qualification of applicants for the purchase of land for

this Act, lands in the town area occupied by dwelling units shall

be sold in accordance with the following terms and conditions:

''(1) First priority to purchase shall be given to the tenant of

the United States in the town area who occupies the land and

dwelling unit to be sold. The land and dwelling unit shall be

offered at the appraised value as established under section 5 less

any applicable discounts under this Act. This right of priority

shall expire unless a deposit of earnest money in an amount to be

fixed by the Secretary is received by him before the expiration of

sixty days after the date on which the property has been offered

unless within an additional one hundred and eighty days the

prospective purchaser shall have signed a contract to purchase the

permit such other assignments of priorities under (1) as he finds

to be fair and equitable. Assignments under this paragraph shall

be subject to such general rules and regulations as the Secretary

may prescribe, including denial, in any instance where the

concerned, or his successors, assigns, or legal representatives, of

any discount in or rebate of the purchase price to which such

person or persons would otherwise be entitled under this Act.

town area not purchased under (1) and shall be given to persons who

are tenants of the United States in Federal housing in the town

area or who would meet the requirements for eligibility to become

such tenants under the most recent regulations of the Bureau of

as under (1), shall be concluded within limits of time established

by the Secretary, and thereafter the purchase shall be concluded in

the same manner as provided under (1). A purchase under (1) or (2)

shall render the purchaser and any spouse of such purchaser

ineligible thereafter to purchase under either (1) or (2).

from the general public and shall be sold to the highest

responsible bidder.

this Act, land in the town area occupied by privately owned

improvements shall be offered for sale to the owner of such

improvements at the appraised value as established under section 5

less applicable discounts under this Act. This preference right

shall expire unless a deposit of earnest money in an amount to be

fixed by the Secretary is received by the Secretary before the

expiration of sixty days after the date on which the property has

been offered for sale, and thereafter the purchase shall be

concluded in the same manner as provided under subsection (b)(1) of

this section.

''(2) Land not purchased by the owner of the improvements (except

church or hospital improvements) thereon under (1) shall be made

available for sale for a period of thirty days to those eligible

for purchase under subsection (f) of this section, and thereafter

shall be opened to bids from the general public and sold to the

highest responsible bidder.

''(3) Land with church or hospital improvements thereon which has

not been purchased by the owners of the improvements under (1) may

be disposed of by advertising and competitive bids, or by

negotiated sale or other transfer at such prices and on such other

terms and conditions as the Secretary shall determine to be fair

and equitable.

''(d)(1) Of the property authorized to be sold under section 2 of

this Act, land in the town area occupied by improvements owned by

the United States other than dwelling units shall be offered to the

lessee of the United States in such improvements at the appraised

value as established under section 5 less applicable discounts

under this Act: Provided, That where there is more than one lessee

in a given improvement and the Secretary finds it impractical to

offer each lessee an interest in the property, the Secretary,

pursuant to such standards as he deems appropriate, shall designate

an order of priority among such lessees for acceptance of the offer

of sale of such property, which shall be sold at the appraised

value as established under section 5 less applicable discounts

under this Act and pursuant to such other terms and conditions as

the Secretary deems proper. Any preference or priority right under

this paragraph shall expire unless a deposit of earnest money in an

amount to be fixed by the Secretary is received by the Secretary

before the expiration of sixty days after the date on which the

property has been offered for sale, and thereafter the purchase

shall be concluded in the same manner as provided under subsection

(b)(1) of this section.

''(2) Property referred to in (1) which is not under lease

granted by the United States or which has not been purchased under

(1) shall be made available for sale for a period of thirty days to

those eligible for purchase under subsection (f) of this section

and thereafter may be opened to bids from the general public and

sold to the highest responsible bidder.

''(e) Of the property authorized to be sold under section 2 of

this Act, land in the town area which has not been improved or land

from which the improvements have been removed shall be sold in

accordance with the following terms and conditions.

''(1) Residential property in the town area shall be offered for

sale to persons who are tenants of the United States in Federal

housing in the town area or who would meet the requirements for

eligibility to become such tenants under the most recent

regulations of the Bureau of Reclamation for the assignment of

persons to Federal housing in the town area. Applicants to

purchase shall be placed in order of opportunity to choose pursuant

to a public drawing. No application shall be accepted from the

spouse of any applicant or from a person, or the spouse of such

person, who owns, has owned, or has contracted to buy other

residential property in the town area. Sales shall be at the

appraised value as established under section 5 less applicable

discounts under this Act, and selection and purchase under this

priority by successful applicants shall be concluded within limits

of time to be established by the Secretary. Residential property

which is not sold under the preceding provisions of this subsection

shall be open to bids from the general public and shall be sold to

the highest responsible bidder.

''(2) Property which at the time of sale is zoned for other than

residential use, except such as is disposed of under subsection (f)

of this section and land with church or hospital improvements

thereon, shall be open to bids from the general public and shall be

sold to the highest responsible bidder.

''(f) Of the property in the town area authorized to be sold

under section 2 of this Act, except that which is covered by

subsections (b), (c)(3), and (e)(1) of this section, land not

purchased by the holders of a priority or preference under this

section shall, for thirty days following the period during which

holders of a priority or preference could purchase the same, be

offered for sale at the appraised value as established under

section 5 less applicable discounts under this Act to persons

leasing property in the town area from the United States for

business or commercial uses. The Secretary may, in his discretion,

permit more than one lot to be included in a single purchase, but

only if the property to be purchased is compact and contiguous. If

two or more applicants to purchase under this subsection desire the

same property, their order of opportunity to purchase shall be

determined pursuant to a public drawing. A purchase under this

subsection shall render the purchaser and any spouse of such

purchaser ineligible either to make an additional purchase under

this subsection or to purchase the business or commercial property

he is renting from the United States.

''(g) Any improvement owned by the United States located on lands

in the town area subject to being purchased by the holder of a

priority or preference right hereunder and not purchased, after

being offered for sale, within one year following the expiration of

the period within which the priority or preference right can be

exercised, may be opened to bids from the general public and may be

sold to the highest responsible bidder.

''(h) In all public sales of property under this Act to the

highest responsible bidder, which shall include all sales of

property to be sold in the Grand Coulee area, the Secretary shall

reserve the right to reject all bids; and, in the event all bids

are less than the appraised value of the property as established

under section 5 or in the event no bids are received, the property

shall be available for sale to the first taker from the general

public at not less than aforesaid appraised value until all such

property has been sold.

''(i)(1) Whenever the Secretary, on presentation of adequate

evidence by a prospective purchaser or purchasers under subsections

(b)(1) or (b)(2) of this section, shall determine that financing of

purchases on reasonable terms cannot be arranged from other

sources, he is authorized to enter into contracts with such

purchasers under which the purchaser would not be required to make

a downpayment of more than 10 per centum of the appraised value of

the property as established under section 5 less applicable

discounts under this Act and the remainder of the repayment

obligation shall be paid on terms as to amount, repayment period,

installments, and interest rate not more favorable to the

purchasers than those which would be available were the purchases

to be financed under mortgages eligible for insurance under

subsection 223(a) of the National Housing Act, as herein amended

(section 1715n(a) of Title 12): Provided, That the Secretary may

increase the interest rate by additional components equal to the

premium being charged (and any periodic service charge being

authorized by the Federal Housing Commissioner for property of a

similar character) under subsection 223(a) of the National Housing

Act, as herein amended (section 1715n(a) of Title 12), at the

effective date of the aforesaid contracts.

''(2) Whenever the Secretary, on presentation of adequate

evidence by a prospective purchaser or purchasers under subsections

(c)(1), (d)(1), or (f) of this section, shall determine that

financing of purchases on reasonable terms cannot be arranged from

other sources, he is authorized to enter into contracts with such

purchasers under which the purchaser would not be required to make

a down payment of more than 10 per centum of the appraised value of

the property as established under section 5, less applicable

discounts under this Act. The remainder of the repayment obligation

shall be paid with such terms as to amount, repayment period,

installments, and interest rate as the Secretary shall determine to

be fair and equitable.

''(3) The Secretary may assign any installment contract under

this section at such times and on such terms and conditions as he

deems appropriate. Any such assignment made at a discount shall be

defeasible if within sixty days after receipt of notification of

such assignment the original obligor of the assigned contract, or

his successors, assigns, or legal representative, shall cause to be

received by the Secretary a tender of the amount for which such

assignment was made, in which event such tender shall be accepted

as full payment of the contract.

''(j) Except in the case of property sold to the highest

responsible bidder under this section or property sold to the first

taker from the general public under subsection (h) of this section

or by negotiated sale under subsection (c)(3) of this section,

persons purchasing property under this section or their successors,

assigns, or legal representatives, shall be entitled to a discount

in the purchase price at the time they enter into a purchase

contract equal to 5 per centum of its appraised value as

established under section 5 and, in the event of incorporation of

the municipality within four years from the date of this Act (Aug.

30, 1957), they shall be entitled to an additional discount in the

purchase price (or rebate as appropriate) equal to 10 per centum of

the aforesaid appraised value.

''(k) In establishing rules and regulations governing sales of

property in the town area under this section, and in determining

the terms and conditions of such sales other than those prescribed

in this Act, the Secretary shall consult with the representatives

of the Coulee Dam Community as determined by him.

''Sec. 4. (Section Amended Section 1715n(a)(3) of Title 12, Banks

and Banking).

''Sec. 5. (Appraisals and Reappraisals of Value). The appraised

values referred to in section 3 of this Act shall be determined

from time to time for a period of five years after the date of this

Act (Aug. 30, 1957) by the Administrator of Housing and Home

Finance Agency or his designee at the request of the Secretary.

Thereafter, the Secretary may make such reappraisals as he deems

necessary. Appraisals or reappraisals in the town area shall be

made only after representatives of the Coulee Dam community, as

determined by the Secretary, and of the Columbia River Commission,

or such corresponding organization as may succeed it, have been

granted an opportunity to offer advice. All appraisals and

reappraisals shall be made on the basis of the properties' fair

market value in the locality. In the sale of property to a tenant

under subsections 3(b)(1) and (3)(d)(1) of this Act, the value of

structural improvements made at such tenant's own expense shall, to

the extent the appraiser or appraisers hereunder determine that

such improvements actually enhance the value of the property, be

deducted from what would otherwise be the appraised value of the

property to be sold; and the difference shall be deemed the

appraised value for the purposes of this Act.

''Sec. 6. (Authority of Secretary To Transfer Property and

Facilities). The Secretary is authorized to transfer without cost

out of the properties in his custody within the town and Grand

Coulee areas ownership of -

''(a) any Federally owned municipal-type property and

facilities together with rights-of-way therefor, equipment,

materials, and supplies, in or serving said areas, including but

not limited to the sewer, water, fire-alarm, street-lighting,

electric feeder lines, and power-distribution systems, and the

highways, streets, alleys, sidewalks, parks, and parking areas to

the municipality or Grand Coulee if their respective areas are

substantially served by such properties. Any such transfer to

the municipality, however, will not be made unless the town area

or a part thereof is incorporated within four years from the date

of this Act (Aug. 30, 1957);

''(b) the school buildings and grounds, athletic fields, tennis

courts, and other properties currently used for educational

purposes to the appropriate school district; and

''(c) highway improvements in and connecting the town and Grand

Coulee areas and the bridge across the Columbia River, together

with the necessary rights-of-way therefor to the State of

Washington.

''Sec. 7. (Availability of Funds). (a) There is hereby made

available out of the proceeds of sales made pursuant to section 3

of this Act an amount not to exceed $130,000 for expenditure,

directly or through the local units of government involved, for

work in connection with the disposal of sewage in the immediate

vicinity of the town of Coulee Dam and the city of Grand Coulee,

including betterment work on the existing open drain along the

north side of the highway through the city of Grand Coulee. Of this

amount the Secretary shall pay not more than $100,000 to Grand

Coulee and not more than $30,000 to the municipality. Except to

the extent that any expenditures have been made directly as

provided in the preceding sentence, the Secretary shall, upon

application, pay to Grand Coulee the amount of $10,000 and to the

municipality the amount of $3,000 for engineering surveys and

drafting of specifications for proposed construction and/or

improvement of sewage disposal and drainage facilities. After

final drawings and specifications have been approved by the

Secretary and the construction contracts have been entered into,

the Secretary shall pay monthly to Grand Coulee and to the

municipality additional amounts equivalent to earnings under their

contracts as evidenced by construction progress reports certified

by their contractors and by Grand Coulee and the municipality, but

not to exceed a total of $90,000 for the former and $27,000 for the

latter.

''(b) Subject to the provisions of subsection 9(a) of this Act,

the following amounts shall be made available, out of the proceeds

of sales made pursuant to section 3 of this Act, to the

municipality if incorporated within four years from the date of

this Act (Aug. 30, 1957): (1) On incorporation, $44,000; (2) at the

end of one year after incorporation, $21,000; and (3) at the end of

two years after incorporation, $15,000.

''(c) The Secretary is hereby authorized to make available as

herein provided, as power and energy reserved for the operation and

maintenance of the Columbia Basin project, for users in the town

area and, to other communities within three and one-half miles of

Grand Coulee Dam which are served by municipally owned distribution

systems such amount of power and energy as, in his judgment, is

needed to meet load requirements for space-heating purposes

existing at the time of incorporation of the municipality. Such

power and energy may be made available directly to the users or

indirectly through distributing agencies, for a period of ten years

from the date of this Act (Aug. 30, 1957) and may be at such

special rates as the Secretary finds to be proper but at not less

than cost.

''Sec. 8. (Taxes on Property Sold Under Contracts Deferring

Transfer of Title). Property sold under any contract deferring

transfer of title pending payment of the purchase price upon

recordation of such contract in the county records shall be subject

to the provisions of the laws of the State of Washington relating

to the assessment and collection of property taxes, and to liens

for such taxes and to all proceedings for the enforcement thereof,

in the same manner and to the same extent as privately owned

property. The United States does not assume any obligation for the

amounts so assessed or taxed; and any proceedings to enforce them

shall be subject to any title then remaining in the United States

and to any prior lien reserved to the United States for unpaid

installments under sale contracts made hereunder.

property (including the assignment of contracts) authorized under

section 2 of this Act are hereby appropriated for expenditure by

the Secretary for (1) expenses of disposal of Federal property

Congress therefor. So much of the aforesaid proceeds as is in

excess of amounts which may be necessary for expenditures referred

to in this subsection shall be covered into the reclamation fund.

''(b) Transfers under this Act of Federal property to non-Federal

ownership shall not result in any diminution of the reimbursable

costs of the Columbia Basin project except to the extent that any

net proceeds from sales of property under this Act are credited to

said project.

''Sec. 10 (Rights Under Leases). Transfers of Federal property

under this Act shall not impair rights under leases granted by the

United States.

''Sec. 11. (Powers of Secretary; Rules and Regulations;

Appropriation; Contracts). (a) The Secretary is authorized to

perform such acts, to make such rules and regulations, and to

include in any contracts and conveyances such provisions as he

-STATUTE-

(a) Payments in lieu of taxes

The Secretary may enter into agreements to pay annual sums in

lieu of taxes to any State or political subdivision thereof with

respect to any real property situated therein after it is acquired

pursuant to the authority of this Act and before execution by the

United States of a contract of sale covering it, out of funds

derived from the leasing of such lands. The amount so paid for any

year upon any such property shall not exceed the taxes that would

be paid to the State or subdivision as the case may be upon such

property if it were not exempt from taxation thereby.

(b) Lands acquired by United States

Any public lands within the project and any lands or interests in

lands acquired by the United States under this Act, beginning at

such date or dates and subject to such provisions and limitations

as may be fixed or provided by regulations made under section 8 (16

U.S.C. 835c-4), shall be (i) subject to the provisions of the laws

of the State of Washington relating to the organization,

government, and regulation of irrigation, reclamation, and

conservancy districts, and (ii) subject to legal assessment or

taxation by any such district, and to liens for such assessments

and taxes and to all proceedings for the enforcement thereof, in

the same manner and to the same extent as privately owned lands of

like character. The United States does not assume any obligation

for amounts so assessed or taxed; and any proceedings to enforce

them shall be subject to any title then remaining in the United

States, to any prior lien reserved to the United States for unpaid

installments under land sale contracts made under this Act, and to

any lien for any other charges, accrued or unaccrued, under and by

virtue of such contracts or any contract between the United States

and the district in which the land is located.

(c) Sale of project lands

In addition to taxation or assessment under subsection (b) of

this section upon execution by the United States of a contract of

sale of any lands within the project, the lands under contract may

be taxed by the State or political subdivision thereof in the same

manner and to the same extent as privately owned lands of a like

character. All taxes legally so assessed may be enforced in the

same manner and under the same proceeding whereby said taxes are

enforced against privately owned lands, subject to the limitations

in favor of the United States that govern the enforcement of

district assessments or taxes as provided in subsection (b) of this

section. If lands under any such contract shall at any time revert

to the United States before transfer of title under the contract by

reason of default thereunder, all liens or tax titles resulting

from taxes levied pursuant to the authority of this subsection upon

such lands shall be thereupon extinguished; and the levying of any

such tax by such State or political subdivision shall be deemed to

be an agreement on its part, in the event of such reversion, to

execute and record a formal release of such line or tax title.

to the tribal and allotted lands within the Spokane and Colville

Reservations, including sites of agency and school buildings and

related structures and unsold lands in the Klaxta town site, as may

be designated therefor by the Secretary of the Interior from time

to time: Provided, That no lands shall be taken for reservoir

purposes above the elevation of one thousand three hundred and ten

feet above sea level as shown by Bureau of Land Management surveys,

except in Klaxta town site and except where in the judgment of the

Secretary of the Interior, special circumstances concerning the

WHEREAS the Bonneville Power Administrator is now disposing of

power and energy generated at the Bonneville Project; and

WHEREAS integration and coordination of the electrical facilities

of the two projects will be facilitated by a mutual exchange of the

electrical power and energy generated at the Bonneville Project and

the Grand Coulee Dam Project and by marketing the power and energy

from both projects through a single agency:

NOW, THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me as

President of the United States by section 2 of the act of August

30, 1935, supra, and supplementing my letter of January 29, 1936,

to the Secretary of the Interior, it is hereby ordered as follows:

1. The Bonneville Power Administrator is hereby designated, under

the supervision and direction of the Secretary of Energy, as agent

for the sale and distribution of electrical power and energy

generated at the Grand Coulee Dam Project and not required for

operation of that Project, including its irrigation features.

2. The Administrator shall construct, operate, and maintain the

transmission lines and substations and appurtenant structures and

facilities necessary for marketing the power and energy delivered

to him from the Grand Coulee Dam Project; except that the Bureau of

Reclamation may construct, operate, or maintain such transmission

facilities as the Secretary of the Interior, in his discretion,

deems necessary or desirable. The Bureau of Reclamation and the

Administrator, with the approval of the Secretary of the Interior,

shall agree upon and schedule the installation of additional

generators at the Grand Coulee Dam Project.

3. The Bureau of Reclamation, with the approval of the Secretary

of the Interior, shall provide the Administrator with a basic

schedule of the power and energy to be available to him from the

Grand Coulee Dam Project. The Bureau, with the Secretary's

approval, may revise the schedule from time to time, except that no

revision decreasing the amount of power and energy available under

an existing schedule shall be effective unless agreed to by the

Administrator. The Bureau will make power and energy from the Grand

Coulee Dam Project available to the Administrator in accordance

with these schedules.

4. The Administrator shall market the power and energy delivered

to him from the Grand Coulee Dam Project at rates to be fixed by

the Secretary of Energy consistently with all applicable provisions

of law and allocations of cost determined as provided thereunder.

From time to time the Secretary of Energy, consistently with all

applicable provisions of law and allocations of cost made pursuant

thereto, shall determine the basis on which the Administrator and

the Bureau shall compute the returns to be made to the Bureau for

power and energy delivered to the Administrator from the Grand

Coulee Dam Project pursuant to this order. All receipts collected

by the Administrator from transmission and sale of power and energy

shall be deposited with the Treasurer of the United States for

credit to a special account, subject to allocation by the Secretary

of Energy in accordance with the computations above provided for.

Upon certification by the Secretary of Energy, the amounts of

receipts properly allocable to the Bonneville Project shall be

covered into the Treasury of the United States to the credit of

miscellaneous receipts subject to the provisions of section 2 of

the act of August 20, 1937, 50 Stat. 731, 732 (16 U.S.C. 832a). The

amounts certified by the Secretary of Energy as being allocable to

the Grand Coulee Dam Project shall be covered into the Treasury for

credit to the Reclamation Fund to the extent authorized by law.

5. In aid of this delegation of authority to the Secretary of the

Interior and the Secretary of Energy, the Commissioner of the

Bureau of Reclamation and the Bonneville Power Administrator shall,

subject to the approval of the Secretary of the Interior and the

Secretary of Energy, and the terms of this order, enter into any

and all agreements that are necessary for the interconnection of

the Bonneville Project and the Grand Coulee Dam Project and to

Congress that the total assistance to all irrigation projects, both

existing and future, in the Pacific Northwest shall not average

more than $30,000,000 annually in any period of twenty consecutive
