the Virgin Islands (48 U.S.C. 1574(b)(ii)(A)) is amended--
            (1) in the first sentence, by inserting after ``other

            (2) by striking ``to construct, improve, extend'' and all 
        that follows through ``Provided, That no public'' and inserting 
        ``for any public purpose authorized by the legislature: 
        Provided, That no such''; and
            (3) by striking ``and payable semiannually. All such bonds 
        shall be sold for not less than the principal amount thereof 
        plus accrued interest''.
    (b) Technical Corrections and Conforming Amendments.--
            (1) Repeal.--Section 8(b)(ii)(B) of the Revised Organic Act 
        of the Virgin Islands (48 U.S.C. 1574(b)(ii)(B)) is repealed.
            (2) Redesignation.--Section 8(b)(ii)(C) of the Revised 
        Organic Act of the Virgin Islands (48 U.S.C. 1574(b)(ii)(C)) is

            (3) Redundant provision.--Section 1 of Public Law 94-392 
        (90 Stat. 1193) is amended by striking subsection (d).

SEC. 2. AGREEMENT.

    (a) In General.--The Secretary of the Interior is authorized to 
enter into an agreement with the Governor of the Virgin Islands 
establishing mutually agreed financial accountability and performance 
standards for the fiscal operations of the Government of the Virgin 
Islands.
    (b) Transmission to Congress.--Upon ratification of the agreement 
authorized in subsection (a) by both parties, the Secretary shall 
forward a copy of the agreement to the Committee on Resources in the 
House of Representatives and the Committee on Energy and Natural 
Resources in the Senate.

SEC. 3. EFFECTIVE DATES.

    (a) In General.--Except as provided by subsection (b), the 
amendments made by section 1 shall apply to those instruments of 
indebtedness issued by the Government of the Virgin Islands after the 
date of the enactment of this Act.
    (b) Effect of Failure To Reach Agreement.--If the agreement 
authorized in section 2(a) is not ratified by both parties on or before
