    (a) Requirement.--The Secretary of the Interior (in this section 
referred to as the ``Secretary'') shall reimburse all private and 
public entities in Nevada for all monetary damages incurred as a result 
of the bonding regulations promulgated by the Secretary on February 28,

not caused, in whole or in part, by such regulations, the Secretary 
shall make reimbursement to the claimant within such 90-day period.
    (c) Appeals.--Any private or public entity that submits a claim in 
accordance with this section that is rejected by the Secretary--

        entity is domiciled; and
