   To prescribe certain terms for the resettlement of the people of 
  Rongelap Atoll due to conditions created at Rongelap during United 
 States administration of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, 
                        and for other purposes.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Rongelap Resettlement Act of 1999''.

SEC. 2. RONGELAP RESETTLEMENT AGREEMENT.

    The ``Agreement Regarding United States Assistance in the 
Resettlement of Rongelap Concluded Between the United States Department 
of the Interior and Rongelap Atoll Local Government'', accepted by the 
Secretary of the Interior on behalf of the President on September 19, 
1996, as amended, shall continue in effect: Provided, That the 
authority to make disbursements pursuant to section 3 of such Agreement 
is extended for a period of 10 years after the existing authority 
terminates and that all such disbursements are--
            (1) subject to the percentum limitation set forth in the 
        Agreement;
            (2) used by the Rongelap Atoll local government to manage 
        and support community reunification, recovery, and mobilization 
        for resettlement, and other activities associated with and in 
        support of resettlement for the dislocated populations at 
        Majuro, Ebeye, Mejatto, and elsewhere in the Marshall Islands; 
        and
            (3) subject to the disapproval of the Secretary based upon 
        a determination that a particular use of funds does not 
        effectively contribute to resettlement or address conditions of 
        dislocation.

            Passed the House of Representatives October 26, 1999.

            Attest:

                                                                 Clerk.
