In subsection (a), the text of 40:1002(a) and (b) is omitted as

unnecessary because the complete names of the Secretary of the

Interior and the Administrator of General Services are used the

first time the terms appear in a section.

In subsection (a)(3), the words "notwithstanding any other

provision of law" are omitted as unnecessary. The words

"Administrator of General Services" are substituted for "General

Services Administration" because of section 101(b) of the Federal

Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (ch. 288, 63 Stat.

379), which is restated as section 302(a) of the revised title.

In subsection (b), the words "January 3, 1985" are substituted

for "the commencement of the Ninety-ninth Congress" for clarity.

Interior, in consultation with the National Capital Memorial

Commission, determines that a site where commemorative works may be

designated on land the Secretary administers in the District of

Columbia.

if, at least 120 days before the designation, the Secretary, in

consultation with the Commission, prepares and submits to Congress

a plan for the site. The plan shall include specifications for the

location, construction, and administration of the site and criteria

for displaying commemorative works at the site.

(c) Risk and Agreement To Indemnify. - A commemorative work

displayed at the site shall be installed, maintained, and removed

at the sole expense and risk of the person authorized to display

the work. The person shall agree to indemnify the United States for

any liability arising from the display of the commemorative work

under this section.
