        with the National Capital Memorial Commission, has made a 
        determination that final design approvals have been obtained 
        from the National Capital Planning Commission and the 
        Commission of Fine Arts and that 75 percent of the amount 
        estimated to be required to complete the memorial has been 
        raised. If these two conditions have been met, the Secretary or 
        the Administrator may extend the 7-year legislative authority 
        for a period not to exceed three years from the date of 
        expiration. Upon expiration of the legislative authority, any 
        previous site and design approvals will also expire.''; and
