Provided further, That such credit shall be reduced to the extent

that lessee has been previously compensated therefor, as determined

An occupant of a single family or duplex house shall, upon

application therefor, be entitled to a credit, against the purchase

price of any residential property purchased through the exercise of

a priority right established under the provisions of section 2332

of this title, for the amount by which the current fair market

value of the Government's interest in the single family or duplex

house of which he was an occupant is enhanced as a result of

improvements to the premises of such single family or duplex house

made by, or at the expense of, such occupant.

(c) Determination of value of improvements

The value of the improvements as specified in subsections (a) and

(b) of this section shall be determined in accordance with the

-STATUTE-

(a) Property within each community

Immediately upon passage of this chapter, or, in the case of Los

Alamos, upon its inclusion within this chapter, the Commission

shall classify all real property (including such improvements and

such fixtures, equipment and other personal property incident

thereto as it may deem appropriate) within each community in

accordance with such classifications as shall insure reasonably

similar treatment for reasonably similar property. The

classification shall be made by such procedures, consistent with

this subchapter, as it shall determine.

(b) Property at or in vicinity of each community

The Commission may, but shall not be required to, classify any

other real property at or in the vicinity of the community, whether

within or outside of that community.

(c) Residential structures within each community

Prior to the date any residential property is first offered for

sale at Los Alamos, the Commission shall further classify each

residential structure within the community of Los Alamos either as

a single family house, a duplex house, an apartment house, a

dormitory, or as a residential structure containing two or more

separate single family units and shall post, at the offices of the

Commission at Los Alamos, a list, available for public inspection

at reasonable times, showing the classification of each such

residential structure. For the purposes of this chapter, each such

residential structure will thereafter be deemed to be a single

family house, a duplex house, an apartment house, a dormitory, or a

residential structure containing two or more separate single family

units in accordance with its classification. In determining the

classification of each such residential structure containing two or

more single family units, the Commission shall consider (1) the

practicability of selling separately the single family units, and

(2) the insurability of mortgages under section 1715n(a) of title

12.

community. The priorities shall -

(a) be uniform in each class or subclass of property;

(b) give such preference to occupants and project-connected

persons and to incoming employees of the Commission, of a

contractor, or of a licensee as the Commission finds necessary or

desirable, giving due consideration to the following factors:

(1) The retention and recruitment of personnel essential to

the atomic energy program;

(2) The minimization of dislocations within the community;

(3) The expeditious accomplishment of the disposal program;

and

(4) The desirability of encouraging private firms to locate

or remain in the community;

(c) give the occupant of a Government-owned single family

house, and the senior occupant of a duplex house, at least ninety

days in which to exercise the first right of priority;

(d) permit persons who have formerly been occupants,

application therefor, to have such priority as the Commission

finds to be fair and equitable; and

(e) not impair any rights, including purchase rights, conferred

Sec. 2348. Priority sale of apartment houses

-STATUTE-

(a) Grantees eligible; priorities; applicability of deduction,

financing and indemnity provisions

The Commission is authorized at Los Alamos to grant to occupants

project-connected persons, and persons residing in the community

both at the time of offering of an apartment house for sale and for

the preceding six months, and to any of the foregoing persons

acting together, such priority interests and priority rights for

the purchase of the apartment house as the Commission determines to

be fair and reasonable: Provided, That a first priority right to

purchase may be granted only to an occupant or a group of

occupants, or an assignee (whose membership or ownership is

composed of occupants, or project-connected persons, or persons

residing in the community both at the time of offering of an

apartment house for sale and for the preceding six months, or any

of the foregoing persons) of the priority interests of such

occupants, who or which has obtained the priority interest of at

least 60 per centum of the occupants of the apartment house:

Provided further, That a second priority right to purchase may be

granted only to an entity whose membership or ownership consists of

occupants, or project-connected persons, or persons residing in the

community both at the time of offering of an apartment house for

sale and for the preceding six months, or any of the foregoing

persons (provided that such entity has obtained the priority

interest of at least one occupant), and whose membership or

ownership equals in number, and occupies or agrees to occupy, at

least 70 per centum of the housing units in the apartment house.

The 15 per centum deduction specified by section 2325(a) of this

title, the deduction provided by section 2326(d) of this title, the

financing provisions of section 2362 of this title, and the

indemnity provided by sections 2363 to 2366 of this title shall be

applicable to such priority sales of apartment houses. Priority

interests granted by the Commission under this section shall be

transferable as the Commission may by rule or regulation prescribe,

but no priority right to purchase shall be transferred except as

provided by section 2333 of this title.

(b) Leasing arrangements by non-participants in apartment house

sales; assumption of lessor's obligations

Any occupant who does not participate in the purchase of an

apartment house with respect to which a priority right to purchase

has been granted shall be entitled, at the time of sale by the

Commission, to a lease for occupancy of his housing unit for a

period not to exceed fifteen months from the date the property was

first offered for sale: Provided, That the occupant makes

application for such a lease within 30 days of the grant of such

priority to purchase. In selling any apartment house with respect

to which lease executed under this section is in effect, the

Commission is authorized to provide for the purchaser to assume any

or all obligations of the lessor. The Commission in such event

shall guarantee the lessee's performance of the lease.

(c) Eligibility to participate in priority purchase

Persons who have purchased, either individually or jointly with

other persons, a single-family house or duplex house (or a

single-family unit in a duplex house) at Los Alamos pursuant to a

priority right under this chapter shall not be eligible to

participate in the priority purchase of an apartment house.

(d) Rules and regulations

The Commission is authorized to prescribe by rule or regulation

such other conditions as it may find necessary or desirable for

qualification of priority interests and rights for the purchase of

an apartment house.

Provided, however, That the compensation to the Government for any

such disposition shall be the estimated fair market value or

estimated fair rental value of the property as determined by the

Sec. 2391. Assistance to governmental entities

-STATUTE-

(a) Annual assistance payments; extensions; determination of amount

and recipient

From the date of transfer of any municipal installations to a

governmental or other entity at or for the community, the

Administrator is authorized, for a period of ten years, to make

annual assistance payments of just and reasonable sums to the

State, county, or local entity having jurisdiction to collect

property taxes or to the entity receiving the installation

transferred hereunder: Provided, however, That with respect to the

cities of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and Richland, Washington, the

Richland School District, the Los Alamos School Board, and the

county of Los Alamos, New Mexico, the Administrator is authorized

to continue to make assistance payments of just and reasonable sums

after expiration of such ten-year period: Provided further, That

the Administrator is also authorized to make payments of just and

reasonable sums to Anderson County and Roane County, Tennessee. In

determining the amount and recipient of such payments the

Administrator shall consider -

(1) the approximate real property taxes and assessments for

local improvements which would be paid to the governmental entity

upon property within the community if such property were not

exempt from taxation by reason of Federal ownership;

(2) the maintaining of municipal services at a level which will

not impede the recruitment or retention of personnel essential to

the Energy Research and Development Administration programs;

(3) the fiscal problems peculiar to the governmental entity by

reason of the construction at the community as a single-purpose

national defense installation under emergency conditions;

(4) the municipal services and other burdens imposed on the

governmental or other entities at the community by the United

States in its operations in the project area; and

(5) the tax revenues and sources available to the governmental

entity, its efforts and diligence in collection of taxes,

assessment of property, and the efficiency of its operations.

(b) Special interim payments

Special interim payments may be made under the provisions of this

section to any governmental entity which -

(1) has a special burden due to the requirements under law

imposed upon it in assisting in effectuating the purposes of this

chapter for which it will not otherwise receive adequate

compensation or revenues; or

(2) will suffer a tax loss or lapse in place of which it will

not receive any other adequate revenues until the new

governmental entities contemplated by this subchapter are

receiving their normal taxes and performing their normal

functions.

(c) Payments for special burdens

Payments made under this section shall be payments made for

special burdens imposed on the local governmental entities in

accordance with the second sentence of section 2208 of this title.

Payments may be made under this section notwithstanding the

provisions of the Act of September 30, 1950 (!1) (Public Law 874,

Eighty-first Congress), as amended.

(d) Recommendation for further assistance payments

With respect to any entity not less than six months prior to the

expiration of the ten-year period referred to in subsection (a) of

this section (or not less than six months prior to June 30, 1979,

in the case of the cities of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and Richland,

Washington, and the Richland School District; or not less than six

months prior to June 30, 1986, in the case of Anderson County and

Roane County, Tennessee; or not later than June 30, 1996, in the

case of the Los Alamos School Board and the county of Los Alamos,

New Mexico), the Administrator shall present to the appropriate

committees of the House of Representatives and the Senate

recommendations as to the need for any further assistance payments

to such entity. If the recommendation under the preceding sentence

regarding the Los Alamos School Board or the county of Los Alamos,

New Mexico, indicates a need for further assistance for the school

board or the county, as the case may be, after June 30, 1997, the

recommendation shall include a report and plan describing the

actions required to eliminate the need for further assistance for

the school board or the county, including a proposal for

legislative action to carry out the plan.

(e) Reduction or termination of assistance payments; determination

by Administrator of financial self-sufficiency

In exercising the authority of subsection (a) of this section the

Administrator shall assure that the governmental or other entities

receiving assistance hereunder utilize all reasonable, available

means to achieve financial self-sufficiency to the end that

assistance payments by the Administrator may be reduced or

terminated at the earliest practical time.
