Sec. 1101. Congressional findings

-STATUTE-

The Congress makes the following findings:

(1) Senator John C. Stennis of the State of Mississippi has

served his State and country with distinction for more than 60

years as a public servant, including service in the United States

Senate for a period of 41 years.

(2) Senator Stennis has a distinguished record as a United

States Senator, including service as the first Chairman of the

Select Committee on Ethics, Chairman of the Committee on Armed

Services, Chairman of the Committee on Appropriations, and

President pro tempore of the Senate.

(3) Senator Stennis has long maintained a special interest in

and devotion to the development of leadership and excellence in

public service.

(4) There is a compelling need to encourage outstanding young

people to pursue public service on a career basis and to provide

public service leadership training opportunities for individuals

serving in State and local governments and for individuals

serving as employees of Members of Congress.

(5) It would be a fitting tribute to Senator Stennis and to his

leadership, integrity, and years of devoted public service to

establish in his name a center for the training and development

of leadership and excellence in public service.

(a) Establishment of fund

There is established in the Treasury of the United States a trust

fund to be known as the ''John C. Stennis Center for Public Service

Development Trust Fund''. The fund shall consist of amounts

appropriated to it pursuant to section 1110 of this title and

amounts credited to it under subsection (d) of this section.

(b) Investment of fund assets

(1) It shall be the duty of the Secretary of the Treasury to

invest in full the amounts appropriated to the fund. Such

investments may be made only in interest bearing obligations of the

United States or in obligations guaranteed as to both principal and

interest by the United States. For such purpose, such obligations

may be acquired on original issue at the issue price or by purchase

of outstanding obligations at the marketplace.

(2) The purposes for which obligations of the United States may

be issued under chapter 31 of title 31 are hereby extended to

authorize the issuance at par of special obligations exclusively to

the fund. Such special obligations shall bear interest at a rate

equal to the average rate of interest, computed as to the end of

the calendar month next preceding the date of such issue, borne by

all marketable interest bearing obligations of the United States

then forming a part of the public debt, except that when such

average rate is not a multiple of one-eighth of one percent, the

rate of interest of such special obligations shall be the multiple

of one-eighth of one percent next lower than such average rate.

Such special obligations shall be issued only if the Secretary

determines that the purchase of other interest bearing obligations

of the United States, or of obligations guaranteed as to both

principal and interest by the United States or original issue or at

the market price, is not in the public interest.

(c) Authority to sell obligations

Any obligation acquired by the fund (except special obligations

issued exclusively to the fund) may be sold by the Secretary of the

Treasury at the market price, and such special obligations may be

redeemed at par plus accrued interest.

(d) Proceeds from certain transactions credited to fund

In addition to the appropriations received pursuant to section

1110 of this title, the interest on, and the proceeds from the sale

or redemption of, any obligations held in the fund pursuant to

section 1108(a) of this title, shall be credited to and form a part

of the fund.
