Sec. 4103. Apportionment

-STATUTE-

(a) Time when apportionments made

Funds appropriated under section 4107(a) of this title shall be

apportioned by the Secretary among the States on October 1 of each

fiscal year, or as soon thereafter as practicable.

(b) Apportionment formula

The amount of funds apportioned to each State shall be determined

by the Secretary as the ratio which the equally weighted average of

the volume and value of fishery resources harvested by domestic

commercial fishermen and received within such State during the 3

most recent calendar years for which data satisfactory to the

Secretary are available bears to the total equally weighted average

of the volume and value of all fishery resources harvested by

domestic commercial fishermen received within all of the States

during those calendar years.

(c) Limitations

(1) No State may receive an apportionment under subsection (b) of

this section for either fiscal year 1987 or fiscal year 1988 which

is less than one-half of one percent of the total amount of funds

available for that fiscal year.

(2) For any fiscal year after fiscal year 1988, no State that,

under the apportionment formula in subsection (b) of this section,

has a ratio of one-third of one percent or higher may receive an

apportionment for any fiscal year which is less than one percent of

the total amount of funds available for that fiscal year.

(3) For any fiscal year after fiscal year 1988, no State may

receive an apportionment under this section for any fiscal year if

that State's ratio under the apportionment formula in subsection

(b) of this section is less than one-third of one percent, unless

the State -

(A) is signatory to an interstate fishery compact;

(B) has entered into an agreement with the Secretary or the

Secretary of the Interior under which the personnel, services,

and equipment of the State and the Federal agency concerned will

be made mutually available for the enforcement of Federal and

State laws pertaining to the protection of fishery resources

which are managed under an interstate fishery management plan;

(C) borders one or more of the Great Lakes; or

(D) has entered into an interstate cooperative fishery

management agreement and has in effect an interstate fisheries

percent and meets any of the requirements set forth in paragraph

(1)(A), (B), (C), or (D) may receive an apportionment for any

fiscal year which is less than one-half of one percent of the total

amount of funds available for apportionment for such fiscal year.

(5) No State may receive an apportionment for any fiscal year

under this section which is more than 6 percent of the total amount

of funds available for apportionment for such fiscal year.

(d) Unused apportionments

Any part of an apportionment for any fiscal year to any State -

(1) that is not obligated during that year;

(2) with respect to which the State notifies the Secretary that

it does not wish to receive that part; or

(3) that is returned to the Secretary by the State,

may not be considered to be apportioned to that State and shall be

Sec. 4104. State projects

-STATUTE-

(a) In general

(1) Any State may, through its State agency or an interstate

commission, submit to the Secretary a proposal for a project which

includes full plans, specifications, and cost estimates for such

project. The total cost of all items included for engineering,

planning, inspection, and unforeseen contingencies in connection

with any works to be constructed as part of such a proposed project

shall not exceed 10 percent of the total cost of such works, and

shall be paid by the State as a part of its contribution to the

total cost of the works.

(2) No part of any funds appropriated under any authorization

contained in section 4107 of this title may be obligated with

respect to any project until the proposal for such project has been

submitted under paragraph (1) and approved by the Secretary. The

Secretary, before approving any proposal for a project, must

evaluate the proposal as to -

(A) the soundness of design;

(B) the possibilities of securing productive results;

(C) the minimization of duplication with other research

projects in support of the management of interjurisdictional

fishery resources and carried out under this chapter or under any

other law or regulation;

(D) the organization and management of the project;

(E) the methods proposed for monitoring and evaluating the

success or failure of the project;

(F) the consistency of the project with the purposes of this

chapter specified in section 4101 of this title; and

(G) such other criteria as the Secretary may prescribe.

(3) The Federal share of the cost of any project conducted under

this chapter shall not exceed 75 percent of the total estimated

cost of the project, unless -

(A) the State has adopted an interstate fishery management plan

for the resource to which the project applies; or

(B) the State has adopted fishery regulations which the

Secretary has determined are consistent with any Federal fishery

management plan for the species to which the project applies;

in which case the Federal share shall not exceed 90 percent of the

total estimated cost of the project.

(4)(A) If the Secretary approves or disapproves a proposal for a

project, the Secretary shall promptly give written notification,

including, if disapproved, a detailed explanation of the reasons

for the disapproval, to the State agency submitting the proposal

or, if the proposal is submitted through an interstate commission,

such commission and the State.

(B) For the purposes of this chapter, funds apportioned under

this section to any State shall be treated as having been obligated

with respect to a project during the fiscal year in which the

written notification of approval required under subparagraph (A)

for the project proposal is made.

(b) Restriction

The expenditure of funds under this chapter shall be applied only

to projects for which a proposal has been approved under subsection

(a) of this section, except that up to $25,000 each fiscal year may

be obligated for a State to carry out an agreement with the

Secretary or the Secretary of the Interior under which the

personnel, services and equipment of the State and the Federal

agency concerned will be made mutually available for the

enforcement of Federal and State laws pertaining to the protection

of fishery resources. If otherwise applied, such funds shall be

replaced by the State before the State may receive any additional

funds under this chapter.

(c) Payment

When the Secretary determines that a project carried out under a

proposal approved by the Secretary has been completed, or where the

Secretary otherwise deems it appropriate, the Secretary shall cause

to be paid to the proper authority of the State, or to the official

or depository designated by the interstate commission if the State

agency specifies that payment is to be made to the interstate

commission, the Federal share of the project. Any payment made to

an interstate commission shall be charged against the apportionment

of the State concerned.
