Sec. 2801. Congressional findings

-STATUTE-

The Congress finds that -

(a) international expositions, when properly organized,

financed, and executed, have a significant impact on the economic

growth of the region surrounding the exposition and, under

appropriate international sanction, are important instruments of

national policy, particularly in the exchange of ideas and the

demonstration of cultural achievements between peoples;

(b) in view of the widely varying circumstances under which

international expositions have developed in the United States,

the different degrees to which the Federal Government has

assisted and participated in such expositions, and the increasing

number of proposals for future expositions, the national interest

requires that Federal action concerning such expositions be given

orderly consideration; and

(c) such orderly consideration is best achieved by the

development of uniform standards, criteria, and procedures to

establish the conditions under which the Government hereafter

will (A) recognize international expositions proposed to be held

in the United States, and (B) take part in such expositions.

Sec. 2802. Federal recognition

-STATUTE-

(a) Eligibility requirements

Any international exposition proposed to be held in the United

States shall be eligible on application from its sponsors to

receive the recognition of the Federal Government upon a finding of

the President that recognition will be in the national interest. In

making such a finding the President shall consider -

(1) a report by the Secretary of Commerce which shall include

(A) an evaluation of purposes and reasons for the exposition, and

(B) a determination that guaranteed financial and other support

has been secured by the exposition from affected State and local

governments and from business and civic leadership of the region

and others in amounts sufficient in his judgment to assure the

successful development and progress of the exposition;

(2) a report by the Secretary of State that the proposed

exposition qualifies for consideration of registration by the

Bureau of International Expositions (hereafter referred to as

BIE); and

(3) such other evidence as the President may consider to be

appropriate.

(b) Recognition and registration procedure; compliance with

international convention; participation by States and foreign

governments

Upon a finding by the President that an international exposition

is eligible for Federal recognition, the President may take such

measures recognizing the exposition as he deems proper, including,

but not limited to -

(1) presenting of an official request by the United States for

registration of the exposition by the BIE;

(2) providing for fulfillment of the requirements of the

Convention of November 22, 1928, as amended, relating to

international expositions; and

(3) extending invitations, by proclamation or by such other

manner he deems proper, to the several States of the Union and to

foreign governments to take part in the exposition, provided that

he shall not extend such an invitation until he has been notified

officially of BIE registration for the exposition.

(c) Report to Congress

The President shall report his actions under this section

promptly to the Congress.

Sec. 2803. Federal participation

-STATUTE-

(a) Congressional authorization; proposals

The Federal Government may participate in an international

exposition proposed to be held in the United States only upon the

authorization of the Congress. If the President finds that Federal

participation is in the national interest, he shall transmit to the

Congress his proposal for such participation, which proposal shall

include -

(1) evidence that the international exposition has met the

criteria for Federal recognition and, pursuant to section 2802 of

this title, it has been so recognized;

(2) a statement that the international exposition has been

registered by the BIE; and

(3) a plan prepared by the Secretary of Commerce in cooperation

with other interested departments and agencies of the Federal

Government for Federal participation in the exposition. The

Secretary of Commerce shall include in such plan any

documentation described in subsection (b)(1)(A) of this section,

a rendering of any design described in subsection (b)(1)(B) of

this section, and any recommendation based on the determination

under subsection (b)(1)(C) of this section.

(b) Construction of Federal pavilion

(1) In developing a plan under subsection (a)(3) of this section

the Secretary of Commerce shall consider whether the plan should

include the construction of a Federal pavilion. If the Secretary of

Commerce determines that a Federal pavilion should be constructed,

he shall request the Administrator of General Services (hereinafter

in this section referred to as the "Administrator") to determine,

in consultation with such Secretary, whether there is a federally

endorsed need for a permanent structure in the area of the

exposition. If the Administrator determines that any such need

exists -

(A) the Administrator shall fully document such determination,

including the identification of the need, and shall transmit such

documentation to the Secretary of Commerce;

(B) the Secretary of Commerce, in consultation with the

Administrator, shall design a pavilion which satisfies the

federally endorsed needs for -

(i) participation in the exposition; and

(ii) permanent use of such pavilion after the termination of

participation in the exposition; and

(C) the Secretary of Commerce shall determine whether the

Federal Government should be deeded a satisfactory site for the

Federal pavilion in fee simple, free of all liens and

encumbrances, as a condition of participation in the exposition.

(2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1)(B) of this subsection, if the

Secretary of Commerce, in consultation with the Administrator

determines that no design of a Federal pavilion will satisfy both

needs described in paragraph (1)(B) of this subsection, the

Secretary shall design a temporary Federal pavilion.

(c) Authorization of appropriations for Federal pavilion

The enactment of a specific authorization of appropriations shall

be required -

(1) to construct a Federal pavilion in accordance with the plan

prepared pursuant to subsection (a)(3) of this section;

(2) if the Federal pavilion is not temporary, to modify such

Federal pavilion after termination of participation in the

exposition if modification is necessary to adapt such pavilion

for use by the Federal Government to satisfy a need described in

subsection (b)(1)(B)(ii) of this section; and

(3) if the Federal pavilion is temporary, to dismantle,

demolish, or otherwise dispose of such Federal pavilion after

termination of Federal participation in the exposition.

(d) Requisites and temporary nature of Federal pavilion

For the purposes of this section -

(1) a Federal pavilion shall be considered to satisfy both

needs described in subsection (b)(1)(B) of this section if the

Federal pavilion which satisfies the needs described in paragraph

(1)(B)(i) of such subsection can be modified after completion of

the exposition to satisfy the needs described in paragraph

(1)(B)(ii) of such subsection, provided that such modification

shall cost no more than the expense of demolition, dismantling,

or other disposal, or if the cost is higher, it shall be no more

than 50 per centum of the original cost of the construction of

the pavilion; and

(2) a Federal pavilion is temporary if the Federal pavilion is

designed to satisfy the minimum needs of the Federal Government

described in subsection (b)(1)(B)(i) of this section and is

intended for disposal by the Federal Government after the

termination of participation in the exposition.
