-STATUTE-

(a) Congress finds that in order to enable the Secretary of

Energy to carry out the policies of Public Law 88-552 (16 U.S.C.

837 et seq.) relating to the marketing of electric power from

hydroelectric projects in the Pacific Northwest, Public Laws 89-448

and 89-561 relating to use of revenues of the Federal Columbia

River Power System to provide financial assistance to reclamation

projects in the Pacific Northwest, the treaty between the United

States and Canada relating to the cooperative development of the

resources of the Columbia River Basin, and other applicable law, it

is desirable and appropriate that the revenues of the Federal

Columbia River Power System and the proceeds of revenue bonds be

used to further the operation, maintenance, and further

construction of the Federal transmission system in the Pacific

Northwest.

(b) Other than as specifically provided herein, the present

authority and duties of the Secretary of Energy relating to the

Federal Columbia River Power System shall not be affected by this

Sec. 838k. Bonneville Power Administration bonds

-STATUTE-

(a) Issuance and sale; terms and conditions; interest rate;

limitation on aggregate principal amount outstanding

The Administrator is authorized to issue and sell to the

Secretary of the Treasury from time to time in the name and for and

on behalf of the Bonneville Power Administration bonds, notes, and

other evidences of indebtedness (in this chapter collectively

referred to as ''bonds'') to assist in financing the construction,

acquisition, and replacement of the transmission system, to

implement the Administrator's authority pursuant to the Pacific

Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act (16 U.S.C.

839 et seq.) (including his authority to provide financial

assistance for conservation measures, renewable resources, and fish

and wildlife, but not including the authority to acquire under

section 6 of that Act (16 U.S.C. 839d) electric power from a

generating facility having a planned capability greater than 50

average megawatts), and to issue and sell bonds to refund such

bonds. Such bonds shall be in such forms and denominations, bear

such maturities, and be subject to such terms and conditions as may

be prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury taking into account

terms and conditions prevailing in the market for similar bonds,

the useful life of the facilities for which the bonds are issued,

and financing practices of the utility industry. Refunding

provisions may be prescribed by the Administrator. Such bonds shall

bear interest at a rate determined by the Secretary of the Treasury

taking into consideration the current average market yield on

outstanding marketable obligations of the United States of

comparable maturities, plus an amount in the judgment of the

Secretary of the Treasury to provide for a rate comparable to the

rates prevailing in the market for similar bonds issued by

Government corporations. Beginning in fiscal year 1982, if the

Administrator fails to repay by the end of any fiscal year all of

the amounts projected immediately prior to such year to be repaid

to the Treasury by the end of such year under the repayment

criteria of the Secretary of Energy and if such failure is due to

reasons other than (A) a decrease in power sale revenues due to

fluctuating streamflows or (B) other reasons beyond the control of

the Administrator, the Secretary of the Treasury may increase the

interest rate applicable to the outstanding bonds issued by the

Administrator during such fiscal year. Such increase shall be

effective commencing with the fiscal year immediately following the

fiscal year during which such failure occurred and shall not exceed

1 per centum for each such fiscal year during which such repayments

are not in accord with such criteria. The Secretary of the

Treasury shall take into account amounts that the Administrator has

repaid in advance of any repayment criteria in determining whether

to increase such rate. Before such rate is increased, the

Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Administrator

and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, must be satisfied

that the Administrator will have the ability to pay such increased

rate, taking into account the Administrator's obligations. Such

increase shall terminate with the fiscal year in which repayments

(including repayments of the increased rate) are in accordance with

the repayment criteria of the Secretary of Energy. The aggregate

principal amount of any such bonds outstanding at any one time

shall not exceed $1,250,000,000 prior to October 1, 1981. Such

aggregate principal limitation shall be increased by an additional

$1,250,000,000 after October 1, 1981, as provided in advance in

annual appropriation Acts, and such increased amount shall be

reserved for the purpose of providing funds for conservation and

renewable resource loans and grants in a special revolving account

created therefor in the Fund. The funds from such revolving account

shall not be deemed State or local funds.

(b) Payment of principal, premiums, and interest from net proceeds;

''net proceeds'' defined

The principal of, premiums, if any, and interest on such bonds

shall be payable solely from the Administrator's net proceeds as

hereinafter defined. ''Net proceeds'' shall mean for the purposes

of this section the remainder of the Administrator's gross receipts

from all sources after first deducting trust funds and the costs

listed in section 838i(b)(2) through (b)(7), (b)(11), and (b)(12)

of this title, and shall include reserve or other funds created

from such receipts.

(c) Purchase and sale by Secretary of the Treasury; public debt

transactions

The Secretary of the Treasury shall purchase forthwith any bonds

issued by the Administrator under this chapter and for that purpose

is authorized to use as a public debt transaction the proceeds from

the sale of any securities issued under chapter 31 of title 31, as

now or hereafter in force, and the purposes for which securities

may be issued under chapter 31 of title 31, as now or hereafter in

force, are extended to include any purchases of the bonds issued by

the Administrator under this chapter. The Secretary of the

Treasury may, at any time, sell any of the bonds acquired by him

under this chapter. All redemptions, purchases, and sales by the

Secretary of the Treasury of such bonds shall be treated as public

debt transactions of the United States.
